Posts tagged ‘Presidential Election ‘
I got sick of him long ago. So, this blog won’t be very long don’t worry.
Tonight is the first Presidential Debate and everyone is talking about ‘which Donald Trump do you think will show up?’
Oh, I have no doubt which Donald Trump will show up… because I know it will be the Donald Trump that needs to show up. Plain and simple.
Either the man is a total idiot … or a very masterful genius. And I am beginning to believe he is both. But I think it has come about by happenstance. Or maybe I’m just listening to those talking heads too much on television to be able to tell the difference. Because they all seem to be confused too by this whole political mess we have this presidential election period.
Lets face it, at his very best we have all come to realize that the man is definitely not smart. He’s not even a good business man. His history as a businessman speaks volumes to that point… in that every … and I do mean ‘every company the man, himself, has started has failed.’
The only business which has somehow managed to survive the raging waters of a fidgety Donald Trump, who apparently likes leaping into business trends he knows nothing about… the first sign of someone who knows nothing about business. Because when you leap into venues … business or otherwise that you have no real working knowledge of … they will inevitably fail.
This is a well known and highly proven fact… which has been the undermining of many goodhearted and people believing they could ‘make it too’… because some new money making business trend was happening in the marketplace. But the thing they had failed to factor in was… they had no expertise or real working knowledge in what it would take in terms of capital, outside already pre-established relationships with other sub-contractors, suppliers, material manufacturers, overhead expenditures etc. that it would take to make it. And maybe like the restaurant business… that it would a few years to first establish their business and clientele before their began to make any real money or even show any level of a profit.
The only business that Donald Trump has managed to not sink is his father’s real estate business. There must be some type of major reason for that… like some type of clause or ryder on dear ole dad’s will that put a board or some other force over ‘the Donald’ from having run that company into the ground too.
I thought that the President had to be men… or women… above reproach. People who exhibited some level of having at lease a grain of honor… a speckle of common sense… or some moral character above the average man or woman… people of GREAT dignity… someone who possessed a HUGE AMOUNT of integrity.
How did this election fall so short?
Sure we may not all be happy about either or… but Hillary sure does beat Donald Trump any day… any year… any month… and any election.
Donald is so crazy… I am not even sure that the man is truly American himself. Seriously.
He is so in love with Putin and dictatorships… and lets face it all
of his wives have not truly been American… including this last 1… who on top of it all … she can barely speak English. A strip-tee artist???
She is the classical example of someone who has sold her soul to the devil. And this would be come the First Lady of the United States?
And Donald Trump claims that America is disrespected now under Obama???
He would be the laughing stock of the world… and First Lady of every other country would find it hard just trying to hide all their smiles… behind such whoredom. And if Donald Trump is marrying high… where is the ‘new low’ in America today?
Because this man is the pits.
I just hope all those people that he has robbed and all the sub-contractors that he dupped out of their contracts… got the job done and/or the materials … but never paid… I truly hope that somehow
they all get their day in court … and see this man in jail where he belongs… and definitely not in the White House … not even on a visit.
What a shock that would be to the Donald… to be dragged off in the middle of the night by Russian guards laughing at his stupidity….
Oh, well… So much for this because truthfully speaking the man has received too much media attention. If anyone needed a total blackout it would be the Donald. And that is all I am going to say on him… except how foolish and ignorant the sellout black folk who have rallied around him are. And I mean a bunch of ignoramus if ever there any.
If it were left up to them we would all be back on master’s plantation… unable to read… picking cotton… and being sold upon auction blocks… just as they are currently being bought. They have no clue that it takes a bunch of dummies to want to run behind a dummy, like Donald Trump… and proclaim him to be the god and savior of black folk… whom history has
proven he hates and thinks very lowly ofNot only are they confused… and lack understanding… who told them that they were smarter than you and me. When we obviously can see way pass all the games that Donald Trump thinks he can play on folk.
I just thank God that all of us are not stupid… and just won’t fall for everyone and everything… for real.
One final note on Trump… how can anyone ever hope to ‘make America great’ …who never even believed in the trademark …‘made in America?’
Well, UPDATE: TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2017… Well, the guy won. And he is going stark raving mad. It has become quite clear to many that this man may truly not be dealing with a full stack of cards… and cards they would truly be.
What we thought was funny… now does not appear so. In 8 days he has managed to cause so much havoc that there is lots of talk about the 25th Amendment an act which allows the president of the United States to be removed for disabilities… and/or impeachment.
There has been demonstration after demonstration against him. And for a man who likes numbers… and is quick to say how he got the longest and loudest applause ‘ever’… it has got to be eating him up.
Well, God bless… I’m out. Thanks for reading my blogs. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2016

Well, it didn’t really take long for the fool known as Donald Trump to really become more outrageous and ridiculous… and an absolute buffoon and idiot… even more so than before the Republican Party gave him the nod to legitimately be their nominee as President of the United of States. Truly a very sad day in American politics… but perhaps even sadder for the Republican Party itself.
The man, to say the least, is crazy.
Being mad at a system is no reason to throw it away. If that were the case we would have overthrown every government we have ever had in this country to begin another …and another one since this country came to be.
What I am saying is many people claim to be upset with government. They claim to be upset with politics as usual. They say that they want people outside of the curve… non-politicians… people just like them.
Then why would anyone have voted for Donald Trump then in the first place? Because certainly no one can say… or should want to say… ‘he is just like me.’
Donald Trump is an exclusive ‘one of a kind’ con man… and he evidently learned from the best… mobsters probably.
He is no great business man. He is nobody with any great flair for business or personal success. Everything he has touched went south… out of business… failed and/or was bankrupt. Except for the company his father left him. And evidently there must have been some type of clause in that will which stipulated that the Donald could only be allowed… note the word ‘allowed’ to do but so much within his father’s business. Otherwise, that too would have probably by now gone to the dogs.
What great businessman do you know who has tried his hand at a myriad of various companies …and ALL OF THEM failed?
The man is a disaster. A one man wrecking crew. A clown in the king’s clothes that no one could see… but were afraid to tell him that he was naked.
It is quite evident to me that Donald Trump has some stories that he could tell. He must have a WHOLE LOT over a WHOLE LOT of people… with some degree of power or status. And that is why many were fearful of attacking him or ever coming out against him… and he, though I think he is stupid, was shrew enough to release that Congressman’s personal phone number just to let all of the others know he was capable and not above doing the exact same thing, as the Manhattan Madame had done, spill the beans on so many people that they all just kept their mouths shut… and are still keeping their mouths shut because they all fear whatever secrets the Donald has on them.
There can be no other reason has to how or why this man got this far. And, yes… President Obama is absolutely correct in having said that the man is unfit to be President of the United States of America. Because Donald Trump is unfit. He knows nothing about politics… the affairs of the world… nor does he know when or how to acknowledge just how little he truly knows… because he is dangerous. He believes he knows everything… and that is a very dangerous person.
For those foolish people who thought that during the Republican Convention they could undo what they had done during the Republican Primaries… when they overwhelmingly voted for ‘the Chump’… thinking they were sending some sort of message or that this thing was a joke. Well, they found out differently… and now the Republican Party is stuck with the single most disastrous Presidential candidate in history.
Truly this whole election will be 1 for the history books for a long time… and it won’t be because the first woman will be elected as President of the United States …but because of a phenomena called Donald Trump… who himself never thought he truly stood a chance… but some kind of stupid thinking on the part of many many many people got him to where he is today. And look what happened… the joker came out on top and never paid 1 dime in advertisement for not 1 political ad… but was seen night and day… 24 hours because evidently somebody was afraid not to give him access like that… msnbc… cnn… abc…cbs… etc…etc…etc… and all those other networks that gave the Donald a free ride.
The prankster played and won. Well, maybe not. I doubt seriously that Trump… or Chump makes it into the White House even as a guest… much less as President.
And I must say… the man is attempting to put the first immigrant woman into the White House as our First Lady… and the woman can’t even speak English.
And though Trump’s wife initially claimed that she alone had
written her speech she gave at the Republican Convention, in Cleveland a few weeks ago… then did a 360 degree turn when it was discovered that the speech had, in fact, been First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech some 8 years ago when speaking about her husband, Barack Obama. It only leads you to believe that even Melania Trump has nothing good to say about Donald Trump either… which is why she had to steal … or attempted to steal the words of Michelle Obama.
I ask you, ‘Is there no integrity among these people?”
What happened to looking for real character and morals… and this thing everyone used to ‘really looked for’ called ‘integrity’ in our leaders, corporation heads… diplomats… teachers… coaches etc…. and even in our Presidents?
Did not anyone but me notice that Trump’s wife looked absolutely terrified mid-way through her speech?
It appeared to me that she was under such great pressure not from the public… but from the Donald… she was tight and points looked to me as if she were going to cry. I seemed to me that if she did not do it right he was going to beat her later. She truly had that kind of look upon her face and within her body language. Her fear was greater than having to be before TV cameras and a bunch of people in a room. And the type of man Donald Trump is … I have no doubt beating his wives is not off the table for him.
Mister ‘I’m so smart’… has to be the dumbest man on the planet. And anyone who cast a vote for him was even dumber. And the ‘I’m so sorry I did it’ numbers are climbing.
I guess I should take a page out of Trump’s 4th wife’s book… ‘If you have nothing good to say … then STEAL IT.’
And talking about 4th wife… no one even mentions that almost all of his children are half sisters and brothers… and some of their mother’s were pregnant before the Donald got around to marrying them. Or do people only mention those sort of things when they are only talking about black or Hispanic people?
Or that was that incident where at least 2 of them pregnant while the Donald was still married to another Mrs. Trump. You can ask Vanna Trump about that… I’m sure she can better speak on that matter better than me.
And I can’t understand any so-called pastor… black pastor or other wanna be black leader would be endorsing such a man as the Chump.
Oh, well now that I have had my say on the Chump who think of himself as ‘Donald Almighty’ … I’m ready to do some real work now. Hope you are doing well and that all is well with you.
Well, God bless… and thank you for reading this blog…and my others. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2016

It does indeed amaze me that 1 Donald A. Trump… or whatever his middle initial is… has managed to play the American public for as long as he has. The man has been doing nothing but consuming the entire American media…for free.
Free television and radio…talk shows of all kinds… everything media including newspapers and magazine covers and articles… since he began his crazy journey… and all for free since his so-called bid to run for President of the United States. It has been reported that the amount of FREE media time given to the Donald amounts to above 1 billion dollars. All to a man who claim he’s ‘so rich.’ He’s ‘so smart’… he’s such ‘a great businessman’ etc…etc…etc…
Trump is the lowest of low. He is a down right out and out scoundrel. His whole persona and image is a massive illusion. Certainly he is a man who must have learned from the best career criminal just how to cheat his way to success… and lie all way while getting there. What a con job.
He is no successful business man. If the truth be told he is not even a mediocre business man. He is a con man pure and simple.
Let’s face it not many people can run to friends or family and have them continue to finance our failures… but somehow this has been what Donald Trump has managed to do.
Who in their right mind as any ‘displaced U. S. worker’ would want to vote for him, a man who has businesses and does all his business abroad using foreign labor. The man uses cheap out of this country labor with regard to products the Donald has had produced with his name on it… such as his neckties… and whatever else. The man sends jobs abroad… but he says he’s going to be the man to bring jobs back to America. Is this some kind of double talk?
What is so hard to believe about the fact that an offender promises to stop others from doing what he does… when and if he were to become President. Then if not… the man would continue to do as he is doing. The man even confesses it. And he blames the American system for ‘forcing him to do it.’ If only we all could blame the American government for enriching us financially.
You have got to be kidding me…. and he is raking up votes from people who actually believe his rhetoric …. and even for some ungodly reason… they even believe in him. The man who is insane… his insane double talking and side-ways talking while everybody else ‘but’ himself a liar.
We might at the end of the day have to all call the man a genius. Or is it called… we’er all being played?
Everybody now is really staring to listen him… and they are falling for him and everything he is saying … all being sucked in to Trump mania… even down to media people now who at first thought of him as a joke. Which when you get right down to it… Trump is. But for some reason now all seem to be overtaken by him and open to the Trump mystique.
What is it that they don’t believe?
What is so hard to accept when it comes to Donald Trump?
That he is a racist?
That he’s a bigot and fascist?
Truthfully speaking … he must be the anti-Christ. Who else could such a man be?
it is as though he has ‘666’ etched in his forehead in invisible ink. Nothing he can say will turn those who love him against him.
This is not some all awing magnificent force but some type of witchcraft that has befallen us… a type of mass hysteria that has swept America. And it is not just overtaking everyday people but people in chief positions… shot callers…. dice rollers and every other wayward sort in the Republican Party or would be Republican during this election for the sake of voting for Trump .
The man has now proclaimed that if he does not get the Republican nod as their candidate to run for the Presidency in Cleveland… the Republican National Convention… that there will be riots. Having made that statement alone should have been enough grounds to have had the man pick up for threatening to incite a riot during the Republican convention. Because Trump sitting on national tv making that kind of announcement was code language to those who would do his bidding… such as members the Klue Klux Klan and every other racist in America.. if the Republican Party fails to do as Trump has commanded. And the outcome following Trump’s riot announcement has the Republican Party scramming …running scared and now everybody wants to meet with him.
The guy has not had to spend 1 dime on advertisement because every time he opens his mouth the tv cameras were there. He has been eating up our airwaves for free since he got into the race to the White House. Every talk show… every news channel … it has all been Trump… everyday and all day long. It is like we are all being hypnotized.
The man nor his wife… Donald nor what’s her name …. neither of them should be let into the White House even for a visit. It is like letting trash in. And this may sound mean or even hateful… but who could be or get any meaner or hateful than the man himself?
Donald Trump. The man espouses nothing but hate… conflict… and deceit.
Who took those nasty disgraceful pictures of his wife?
Well, she wasn’t his wife at the time… but he thought nothing about having them taken pictures of her dis-robed. And they were shot on his airplane.
The man has neither class or anything that would give him a plus. He is a rich guy… maybe. But whoever said money could give anybody any class… smarts… or the ability to become the President of the United States.
Clearly, this world would be in a world of trouble if someone like the
Donald ever became the most powerful man in the world… the President of the United States of America.
Well, God bless… this is it for today. I guess I am now getting back into my stride. It has taken me a while or maybe I was just waiting on the right climate for me to begin writing again on my blog. Don’t know what it was. But I’m back… at least for now.
Have a great rest of your day….

Needless to say we are witnessing a very rare time in our political history in this country, a time of mayhem and chaos politically. I guess 1 could say that it all can be primarily attributed to President Barack Obama having been voted in as President of the United States of America.
I say this because I cannot figure out what other reason would or could have lead a Ted Cruz or a Marco Rubio… or Ben Carson …or a Donald Trump, some very unlikeliest… to believe that they had what it takes… or could possibly stand a chance of ever becoming President of this country … EXCEPT for the fact that a black man finally got into the White House, for the only time in our history and very possibly ever again.
I understand that Ted and Marco may have well forgotten that they are not ‘white’ while running around on Capitol Hill. It is a problem that some black folk used to have too
suffer from too, when they stepped up into certain positions or had made certain associations. And then there are some black folks like Ben Carson who have yet to come to the realization… that he is not ‘white,’ … and no matter how much he tried trashing Obama and Obama’s record…while trying to seek their approval they ‘white’ folk will never see him as being white.
After criticizing and trying their best to defame Obama, the 1 person whom Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz should have been lifting up and tried to aid and assist in any possible way… as a means of showing that for no other reason than that ‘a minority person was just as capable of being a good and successful President of the United States as any white man which had preceded him.’ This may have helped to paved the road for another black man or an hispanic person to become President too.
But ‘no’ this thought never came to them. And it didn’t come to them because each… Ben Carson… Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio … each feel that they are Americans and that alone wiped away everything else. That they could call upon their ‘Americian-ness’ and proclaim themselves devote Christians… and this could catapult them right into that fancy seat in the Oval Office as the 2nd or 3rd minority person to become President of the United States of America.
But it doesn’t. Ben Carson is still a black man… and Marco and Ted aren’t even Puerto Ricans …but Cubans. Oh, they sound like who they are trying to emulate… and to some degree look like it too …particularly in the case of Cruz… who looks like he is passing… and saying that he is from Canada has been a big help, EXCEPT for when the Donald began tackling him and calling him ‘not American,’ because Cruz was not born in the United States. And who knows maybe Donald Trump might even be right on that 1?
If the Republican Party really plans to throw the election and not give it to Donald Trump, who is the person gathering most of the votes to be their candidate to run for President… they will have ‘hell to pay.’ Do they… the Republican Party really believe that the only reason Donald Trump is rallying up his troops into mobs is because he wants to throw a few black folk out of his press conferences?
No. It’s because Donald is preparing his people for a fight. They will storm the stage and start punching at everybody they see. They are going to fight and start a riot …and take it by force if need be. But they will not let their new found champion down.
This stuff is not rocket science… Donald Trump in these little incidences during his rallies is giving the powers that be of the Republican Party a view of what to expect if they dare try to undermine him, and not make him… the man with the most votes their nominee presenting the Republican Party for President of the United States.
They will be throwing chairs… punching folk… fights breaking out all over the Republican convention if the Republican Party tries undermining the Donald and his hate mongers. The Donald has already set the tone for it to happen if he does not get what he wants… and his people are ready.
Trump is like that little ‘bastard child’ who has come to tell daddy ‘I hate you,’ because you
gave me everything but your love. One of those little spoiled brats that everybody hates to see coming. The kind of kid that throws a tantrum when they do not get their way… holding their breath, stomping their feet and rolling in the middle of the floor while they turn purple.
Clearly, the man is not bright… which is why he has an unending need to continually tell himself while trying to persuade others as to just how smart he is. As if going to a certain school can do it for you… that is how dumb he is. So, he calls out the name of the school almost every time he opens his dim mouth.
Or as if heading a business daddy left to you… and being able to hire the brightest and the best to handle the business for you… (what did you not know he really needed apprentices)… to cow down to him and make him feel like he is ‘really’ a good business man. Everybody
knows that he owes much to his first wife… who may have been his only shinning glory. And may have well been that ‘great woman’ behind a very mediocre man who might very well not be who we know him to be today or be known of if it had not been for her.
In looking at recent pictures of Ivana today… as an older woman… it appears she had leaped off the deep end too. But I guess having dealt with a lunatic as a husband for as long as she did is subject to make
anyone go a bit cracko too.
Clearly, the Donald’s only problems have not been his ability to stay out of bankruptcy. But to keep his pants up… and stop making woman pregnant so he would have to marry them to save face. What in world could possibly give Donald Trump the right to believe …or even feel …. that he has the caliber worthy of being President of the United States of America… EXCEPT for the fact… he’s ‘white’… unlike Cruz and Marco and po’ ole Ben… after a young senator from the State of Illinois happened to get in… who was black… or should I say ‘African American’ …and after that now it seems that everybody and just about anybody has began to feel like they could be President too. Not because they were ‘worthy’ of becoming President of the United States ….but because they felt and/or do feel that Barack Obama being a black man lessen the standards of what it takes to be President of the United States of America simply based upon the sheer color of his skin … as if skin color is the primary qualification of the Presidency of our country. And nothing could have been or is further from the truth than that… because truly if ever there was a qualified candidate to become President of the United States Barack Obama has more than proved it was indeed him.
If anything President Obama and his family lifted the standards of what we should all be looking for in a President. Qualities that go beyond education… which surely the Obamas… both President Obama and his wife without a doubt do have. Qualities that go beyond personal character… which President Obama hands down has exemplified as being extrairdinaire from beginning… as a young man and throughout his term as President. Qualities of sincerity and caring combined with drive and purpose… there can be no question of this in our
President… President Obama. Qualities of devotion and respect of the position in which he was entrusted… we need not consider this as any man who gets up and puts on a suit
and tie every morning to go downstairs, and handle business as if he were working on Wall Street… when he could chose to dress as George Bush did… casual most days… then you must know how President Obama perceived his duty… his charge… and obligation… he took it seriously and with honor and dignity.
So, let us examine the qualities of those who would replace him on the Republican side:
- Ben Carson I have long held since the day I first saw him… that he looked like a person who was medicated. I know nothing of his medical career but have watched him in all the various debates and know without a doubt he could never sit among other diplomates and speak with any type of authority or genuine knowledge or assurance. It is just not him… or in him.
- Ted Cruz… well, anyone who would take up taxpayers hard earned money tying up the Senate reading Green Eggs and Ham… Was that him? Well, any person who would do that is not worthy of taking into serious consideration for anything… because they fail to take their job seriously or people’s time… or their position in government.
- Marco Rubio… well, when he began that thing about Trump having small hands ‘and you know what they say about a man with small hands’ I knew he could never be presidential enough… and though I didn’t and don’t like Trump… Rubio’s cracks seemed to be pointed more at his age (as a senior man)... and I didn’t think that was funny. But his pre-fab speeches drove me crazy because the man never spoke from the heart… and like most politicians Rubio certainly seemed willing to say anything to get a vote.
- John Kasiak as governor of Ohio the only thing I think of when I see or hear him is how black folk had to stand in long lines in the pouring rain at polling locations to vote in urban areas of Ohio, due to slow and broken ballot boxes. But he is the ‘heir apparent’ …the ‘great white hope’ since he is still the only white male on the Republican side in the race…. and whom all agree the only other white man in that race who is not crazy.
- Donald Trump, mister crazy…. and ‘I love everybody.’ The man with the code words… ‘make America great again’… meaning lets step way back in time …possibly the 1800’s …get rid of some of these minorities except the ones ‘he hires’ and/or marries… and subjugate the rest.
Clearly, Trump is a racist and bigot who believes he has out smarted everyone…with his foolishness. Because the man is indeed a fool who knows how to minister to the under-educated and the inter-biasness of others for his own exploits, and ‘feel good therapy.’ As yes, it makes Donald feel good hearing them chant his name… its kind of like his name being put on another building or airplane. Because Donald Trump is someone who needs to be stroked and made to feel bigger… and smarter than he really is… as he is neither smart… nor ‘smarter’ than anyone… nor does possess any more business savy than the average bear.
He’s sooooooo rich.
Oh, yeah…Donald. I am so sure he is which is why he is yet to release his tax records. If he were that rich the bankruptcies that he has had could not have come about. He would have been been made pay his creditors rather than cheat them out of their money.
In fact, if he had to pay for any commercials like the other candidates Trump may have long been forced to have gotten out of the race himself. But he fell upon it accidentally… and found that it worked and has been running with it all the way to the bank. How to use media to his advantage… and it has been working. What money he may lack now… Trump will truly capitalize upon once this whole thing is over. There will be additional books… tours and speaking dates… even the re-emergence of his college. But when the crowds fail to start to line up it… it will be all over… and the noise all goes away. And he will be forced back at being who he was before this whole mess got started.
Well, God bless… It’s time for me to really get to work now. But I just had to take this time to write this blog as I have been dying to put in my 2 cents regarding this election for the race to the White House 2017.
I pray that God help us all… because this political season should give us all
reason to be concerned. But like pass times in slim pickings our country yet prevailed…

It is a shame that it took this long for this conversation to sincerely and truthfully come to the forefront of American conscientiousness… but at last it has happened. And 1 might say several senseless massacres too many before something should have really been done… like a long time ago.
After mass killings after mass killings finally the United States government is taking a stand, and President Obama is initiating laws against assault weapons and hand guns…all of which the Republicans for the most part want no part of it.
Well, I understand when your biggest financial campaign contributor is a gun manufacturer, and you have all those gun lobbyist sitting on Capitol Hill. Yes, that might sway your judgment about gun control until it becomes a question of your own son or daughter…getting killed in some movie theater… grade school or upon some college campus etc…
I’m happy that President Obama has said enough is enough, and is taking a lead on doing something that the Congress and the Senate of the United States has refused to have taken seriously for all these years and episode after episode.
But what is so annoying and distasteful to me is how the Republicans hate President Obama…and are so very disrespectful of him. they despise him. And no matter what good President Obama tries to do… they are against him. Whereas, no matter what George Bush did… In fact, it appeared that everything George Bush did was good to them… down to lying about weapons of mass destruction… and sending off people’s sons and daughters to be killed in wars which should not have been. But they… those arrogant Republicans stood by George Bush… all the way. Pushed pass everything Bush wanted without so much as a sniffle. But oh how they cry bloody murder over everything that President Obama does or tries to do. And then they want to say that ‘they are not racist.’
Finally got a chance to read the above entire article LINK. Those republicans are a real joke. They can’t even bring themselves to call Obama ”Mister President” or ‘President Obama.’. It seems that uttering those words when referring to the President would seriously hurt them.
What kind of fool do they think President Obama is?
Trying to scare Obama by saying they will consider impeaching him for legally using Presidential authority granted unto him, as President of the United States. I don’t think anything dumber has EVER been said. What a bunch of fools.
Arrogance… ignorance and hatred will make a fool of you all the time… and that is the state that the American Republican party is in. They are arrogant… ignorant fools. And they show that by making the stupid statements such as those expressed in the above news LINK.
I am so happy Obama is not a chump. He doesn’t back down.. and he knows exactly who he is and they can’t stand that.
He’s the President…and they are only members of the House… He’s ”head houcho”…and that really bugs ’em…. And even worst of all Obama acts like it…and THAT is killing them.
It is far beyond the time for the Federal Government to step up into the role of ensuring the safety of the American Public by enacting laws that will lower the availability of guns to the criminally minded, and those who have some insane agendas. These incidences have become too frequent and they are escalating. I am just story that it took a bunch of very young school children to signify this point.
I just happened to catch a segment on The View regarding gun control and various methods that can be put into place at schools. It was 1 of those rare times that I must admit to being totally in agreement with Elisabeth Hasselbeck… who is almost always a voice of dissension on that show… and a devote Republican.
Whoopie, Sharri and Barbara were all for guns being given to school teachers as a good method of curving school killings. Which is something I find to be totally ludicrous.
Of, course some do. And then the other side of that scenario is this…
What happens when a student gets a hold of 1 of his or her teacher’s guns?
Because arming teachers and/or other school faculty staff is a very very bad idea… so many walking and carrying guns in school this could very well become a worst problem… and dilemma would arise at knowing who to shoot at. In the heat of a shoot out… like out on the battlefield this is not necessary 1 of the easiest things to decipher… Hence, ‘friendly fire.’
But fear and a haste to make all the wrong choices by putting into place measures that could bring about even worst consequences, than the problems we now face itself are worthy of some deep thought. And it is not Obama’s plans that I fear… but all these so-called do-gooders who may have some very flawed thinking triggered by lots of fear… or hidden agendas… all coming… running with their irrational suggestions.
It would have been a disaster if suddenly a shoot out between a passenger and airline personnel broke out in an aircraft… leaving all the passengers in grave danger not to mention the aircraft itself. And so would be arming teachers or other supposed teaching professionals with guns be too. The last time I checked that shooting at Sandy Nook school, in Connecticut where 26 people were killed… and most of theml children under the age of 10… it was the mother (the school teacher of that classroom)… who had owned those guns which were used…by her crazed son.
The article reads that the woman…the female victim was the true hero here…
I am, however, sure that his parent’s might have seen this picture entirely different… and particularly since the crazed man, who had kidnapped the young woman, torched their home in an effort to get the young female victim back.
The young 14-year-old in this story definitely deserves to be praised. But I know his parents must have an entirely different take on this story. But he saved that young woman’s life…while at the same time putting at risk his own, and that of his younger sister and brother. And not to mention their family home.
But it was an unselfish act. And a lot of times people can’t understand unselfish acts…because they only see the dangers in them.
But this boy will probably be blessed for the rest of his life…because he did what God calls all of us to do. To love our neighbors as we love ourselves. The text actually specks of laying down your life for your brother. Something that I know would run across no parent’s mind at the time when they hear how their home and family was put into jeopardy by the actions of 1 their older child.
And going back to The View… on that same show they were also discussing Governor Chris Christie and his weight. Truthfully speaking I felt a bit offended. They made it sound like ALL overweight people are unhealthy… which is definitely not the case. And they also made it sound like only overweight people have health problems… and we all know that is definitely not true.
But what struck me as being somewhat bias was Whoopie’s response to the whole conversation. She who for many years… if not still… has been known to be a very heavy smoker. Even while listening to Whoopie speak you can hear the effect of those years of smoking upon her voice. Yet she failed to mention that her own addiction… the 1 to cigarettes is even far more unhealthy and harmful…if not just as much so… as she talked about all of Christie’s weight wearing on his heart… and would hinder his ability to do the job of a President effectively.
According to the consensus cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, accounting for close to 17 percent of total healthcare spending. Cardiovascular issues include: hypertension, coronary artery disease, acute myocardial infarction, per-cutaneous coronary intervention, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure.
Cigarette smoking is a major contributor to the
three most prevalent causes of death in African Americans… heart disease, cancer, and stroke. All people, regardless of race and ethnicity, can become addicted to tobacco and can be damaged by the harmful effects of smoking.
So, what I am saying is this… Governor Christie should not be singled out and declared unfit… or otherwise unhealthy simply because of his weight. It brings about an astigmatism that is many times placed upon all heavy-set people unjustly. Causing many of them to not get health benefits… jobs… and oftentimes ostracized. Which certainly is not fair and treads upon their civil rights.
It is very likely that if Christie chooses to run again as Governor of New Jersey… tries to leap out into Presidential waters his weight is going to be continuously made a factor. And that really should not be.
I recall that this guy wrote this book called ‘THE JOY OF JOGGING.’ He was an avid jogger. By every regard he was considered in good health… and his body trim and fit. One day while out jobbing the man dropped dead from a heart attack. I am not trying to poke fun here… but merely saying skinny or fat… tall or short… you are subject to drop dead or have a heart attack. And yes, I would agree that having more weight upon your body does put stress upon your heart, but so doesn’t smoking or some of those other bad habits like excessive drinking or drug abuse… etc…
Now, I do not advocate being overweight. Lord, no… I have had my own issues and battles with it. But I also can see where such a conversation is hurtful, demeaning and liable to bring about discrimination to those seeking job placement… or whatever.
God bless…hope you enjoy your weekend. I think I may get so much needed sleep… and edit some video projects this weekend.
And remember that Monday… this coming Monday is both President Barack Obama’s second inaugural… AND Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.’s birthday celebration. Enjoy them both… and I am hoping to see you in D.C for the festivities. But if not please enjoy it for me too.
And happy belated birthday FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA… can’t close without saying that. I love you.
In fact, I love you both…. And 49 is a great year… A very good year indeed…
And I hope that you are checking for a picture of me in these blogs… Who knows I might even think of doing something real special. Just keep looking out for me… in my blogs.

And they are hating it. Hating that Obama won. Before Ohio even reported their ballot count President Obama already had 282 electoral votes. Making him the winner for his 2nd term as the President of the United States. Ohio put the President at 303 electoral votes…and by the time Florida weighed in some 4 days later… Obama’s electoral count hit 332. Romney was finished at 206.
So, yes… President Barack Obama won… and it was not through cheating or lying… or even by playing games with the American people. He won by being real and being compassionate towards the people whom he has been elected to lead. And by showing that even though the odds were against him he could make things happen… and start to change.
You would have to be a fool.
And foolish they were. All those people… Republicans who poured in a million… a hundred million… a few hundred thousands… or even 50¢ to back a political opponent as flawed as Mitt Romney.
What were they thinking?
They did it feeling they had no choice… and that Romney was going to be their ‘great white hope.’ Because when you get right down to it that is all this campaign meant to them. It was not based upon issues… or substance… or even based upon truth for them. No, sadly it was not… but a need to have the black man removed from the White House by any means necessary. And if it took ever dime they had… they were willing to try and do it.
Personally, I hope to hear that a few of them have to file for bankruptcy… because they were… and are just a bunch of old racist idiots. And many times the only way such people who think as they do ever learn is through their pocketbooks… or checkbooks… or by zeroing out their entire bank accounts.
Which some of them might have done.
One might be able to understand it if any of their fears… or concerns (if they had any legitimate concerns) were real or true. But they were and are not. President Barack Obama has been doing a good job… and this country is on its way back. And greatly because of Obama’s efforts to keep at it regardless of the unnecessary blocking of his every move put up by the Republicans.
From de’ Donald Chump to Chuck ‘gimme a break’ Norris and a bunch of other fools… something was definitely wrong with their thinking.
If we are all Americans… then we should all want and desire the same things. But this is not so. There are people in this country who enjoy being considered ‘elitist.’ They strive on it. They love this status of being better off than most… going where they want… able to buy whatever they want when they want etc…etc… They live well… they drive well… and they play well. And this is all that matters to them.
They are shallow people. They live only for themselves.
Well, as a rule… they do. But when a black man became President of the United States… Barack Obama… they viewed this as a step towards loosing more and more of their cherished status-quo. Believing that soon all their exclusive little places would soon be overrun by the up-and-coming folk… folk like those who stepped into the White House 4 years ago. Who by the way are the new elite… and the lily whites have found that hard to swallow.
They would have loved history to regard Barack Obama’s first term as President as a fluke. But a second time around?
It can hardly ever go down in history as a ‘fluke.’ No, but rather a people’s choice.
No, Barack Obama’s winning the Presidency of the United States the first or the last time can hardly be considered either a ‘fluke’ or something which came by mere happenstance considering the sheer numbers of American who voted for him. But then these belly aching people they have another problem. And that is trying to determine among themselves who is or isn’t really American… a question they raise often when speaking about our President.
What they do not want to give President Barack Obama credit for is the thing which hurts them the most. And that is that he is smart.
Did that white man say that… about a black man?
No wonder they didn’t want us to start learning how to read or write. Why they kept our schools in run down structures. And why back a few years ago none of our schools never had tracks or swimming pools… or libraries… of football fields… and many still do not.
So, now the winner has been declared. It was Barack Obama… and we didn’t even have to wait until mid-night. And when the announcements came in the news people said Obama didn’t even need Ohio to win… but he got it. And he definitely by the time Florida’s vote count was finally release some 4 days later… he didn’t need that state to win either. But he got it.
No wonder Romney was in such dismay. The man thought he had it in the bag. He was prepared to make his acceptance speech… but had never planned on making a loser speech. The fireworks were set to go off… people prepped to run into the street cheering… confetti ready to fall… and the bottles of champagne had already been opened. And then reality slowly began to seep in… they were loosing… loosing… lost.
The polls were wrong… but then how could they not help but to be wrong?
- Because the so-called polls kept saying that Obama was behind Romney is popularity… Now, that was a joke.
- Behind Romney in how America felt where they wanted this country to go… Well, I guess the end of the election proved to to be wrong too.
And Romney and his people bet everything on what their pollsters were saying… and it all had to have been a lie. Which is what the Romney campaign became known for… lying. I guess all that lying caught up with them.
Now a whole week later they are still belly aching over it. Romney is saying Obama would not won if he hadn’t given people gifts. What gifts?
With all the money poured into Mitt Romney’s campaign he should never talk about anyone giving people gifts. They gave him the give that was supposed to do what had done during the Republican primaries… and that was to ensure that he would be the last man standing. But money could not do it. And lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of money couldn’t do it either… and that is what they cannot believe.
But why can’t they just accept that their man was not good enough?
Because it was never about being good. It was about color… and it is still about color.
It did not happen 4 years ago when they started churning the waters then with this craziness… and it is not going to happen now. They just want to put it out their as a why of spotting Obama’s win. But they are only showing their hand as the racists that they are. And they are truly that.
Because if another person… somebody more like them. Somebody who looked like them …had the same skin color like them …. Now, that would have been acceptable and there would not have been no talk of seceding from the Union of the United States. Without being a part of this federal government any state would soon fail. First of all they would have to create all their own collateral… t distribute it …and buying up all that ole dirty American money that claim they don’t want any more since the President is somebody who is non-white. And before they knew it they would all be bankrupt… every state talking this craziness. And they would all soon find themselves running back to Obama for help.
So, they… these spoil little brat Republicans… need to stop making themselves look like fools… and trying to incite people against President Obama and his Administration. Because it won’t work. And it especially won’t work because most of us… more than 54% of Americans all voted OBAMA …and not ROMNEY anyway.
UPDATE: Monday, November 19, 2012…. It is really a shame when public systems… such as a school district belittles itself in such a matter as this, as well in an attempt to degrade and belittle the President of the United States. Years ago such a thing as this would never have been tolerated by any school system. But things change… and particularly when it comes down to the color of skin.
This piece of paper was circulated in some local school by a teacher.
Worst than being just a bunch of bad losers… they are a bunch of the worst losers EVER. They really should just grow up.
Thankful for the warmth coming back. Was concerned about those without electricity and whose homes and apartments were damaged with Hurricane Sandy blew in. But our God is sooooo good. As strong and as powerful as Sandy was so many more could have been hurt or killed… and much more destroyed.
It is amazing to me that something of this nature had never happened to New York City before… being that New York sits on the Atlantic Ocean and is made up of nothing but a bunch of islands.
And another thought came to my mind just now… as I was about to end this blog. It is hard for me to believe that anyone would vote ‘yes’ on legalizing marijuana for recreational use… meaning like the way the teenage kids smoke it.
How is it that people are so pro-life… yet would vote ‘yes’ on distributing pills that people can kill themselves?
Well, Veterans Day just passed… and we are now looking toward Thanksgiving. Hope that you have an enjoyable… in case I fail to post anything between now then.
God bless… and I will see you the next time. And if it is after Thanksgiving… believe me when I say ‘it was some good eating.’

To date we have had 2 debates leading up to the Presidential Election, one with Mitt Romney matching up against President Obama, and the other John Ryan vs. Vice President Joe Biden. What struck me as interesting following these 2 debates was how much the following commentary varied.
It appeared to alright when Mitt Romney kept interrupting and overstepping President Obama, but when Joe Biden interrupted Ryan all the spin doctors called Biden rude and disrespectful. And who could be more disrespectful than that rude loud mouth Rush Lim-whoever who had a nerve trying to act offended by Biden trying to set the record right over Ryan’s lies.
Why is it that when their guy does it is it okay?
Because this is how the Republicans play. It is harder to find anywhere, I suspect, a bunch of liars and cheaters as we have here in the United States, who look at other countries and think we are sooooo much better. And to a regard we are… in fact in many ways we are.
But a liar and a cheap in any country is nonetheless a liar and cheap… and such people only mean to exploit and use their people and/or position they are lying are trying to cheat their way into for selfish and mostly self-serving advantage.
So, when Mitt Romney and John Ryan lie about things that they honestly know to be untrue it is solely for the purpose of trying to instill fear into voters… just to get into the White House. Fear and lies were tactics that the prior Republican knew very well and manipulated well for 8 years to almost the demise of this country.
The facts under President Obama speak for themselves and you really do not need a hard-sell car salesman to drive home that Obama regardless of opposition to stall him… hinder him… and anger him has made a difference. And what a breath of fresh air.
Obama has made a difference… and it has been for our good and it has been a positive difference. We are no longer sitting in the dark wondering if our Allies will come our rescue… or join us… or when the next airplane is going to fly into another building. And not to mention having brought our men and women home from Iraq by ending that war as he promised.
But under George Bush this was not the case because Bush turned all our Allies against us… and worked diligently to ensure that America stayed fearful of another attack from some Al Qaeda force or forces. And this mind you… you Republicans after your former Republican leader got us into senseless wars killings thousands of Americans, destroyed our economy, almost brought down our entire banking system… and that of the world too, and left us in tremendous debt which Republicans do not talking about.
MAY have LEFT A PROBLEM????
George Bush left more than a problem and the Republicans… all of them help him to do it by backing and voting for everything that George Bush put upon the table that could be backed and/or voted for. While failing to support Obama in any kind of way with the hope that Obama would fail. But President Obama has not failed regardless of the attacks upon him, his record and his initiatives.
Obama got ObamaCare through the White House, he got Bin laden, unemployment is down to it’s all time low since the last 4 years. And all of this without the aid of the Republicans, who have only sought to hinder every gesture by Obama to fix what Bush broke.
I will never forget how shortly after President Obama got into office that he sought to massive work done to the infrastructure of America, by having high-speed trains and railways put in around America, and offered money to states to get involved. And there were certain Republican Governors who refused to accept the federal funds that Obama was offering to their states, because they preferred see the plan sink rather that their state take the money that would have surely opened up thousands of jobs for people all across this country.
So, when you get right down to it… Republicans do not care really about the people who vote them into office. They care mainly about their own personal interests, the few multimillionaires who assist in funding them and ‘their combined interests’ ….and they care about winning an election at any cost and regardless of how many lies they have to tell… and support in order to do it.
And the good guy comes in last.
During the debate between Mitt Romney and Obama… Obama did not try to over-talk Romney or continuously interrupt him, as Romney did when Obama or the moderator was speaking. And at the end of the night the spin doctors were declaring what a marvelous debater Romney was and how he had won the debate.
Mitt Romney is far from being a great debater one needs only to look back at the debates he had when he was trying to get to the point where he now is. During those debates where he and about 6 other Republicans were battling to become the candidate for the Presidency. In those debates Romney became un-wired… unglued… and was outted as being a liar, a flip-flopper and a man who could not stand up against his own record as Governor of Massachusetts, where he sat doing nothing during that term but dreaming about running for President… which by the way was the only reason Mitt took up residence in Massachusetts.
Then there is the question of Mitt’s religious beliefs. It is a question which should hardly be left unchallenged since Romney religion believes that women have neither voice nor rights. So, how could this man become the President of a country where women’s rights had been deemed the standard and model for women in countries like Iraq?
It would be a contradiction.
And based upon the fact that Mormon pretty much use woman as mere baby factories… of course issues such as women’s right to make decisions over their own bodies would be in total conflict with Mitt’s religious beliefs. Or women holding any office of authority would also go against Mitt’s religious order.
And how about all those older men marrying those young pre-teen girls… and all their multiple wives?
In fact, when one sits down and thinks about how in the world could a man like Mitt Romney possibly govern or command a country such as the United States, when everything he has been taught and trained to believe is not of our world… but of the Mormon world… a world that operates in their hubs as they have designed it to operate. And whose beliefs are not quite the same as ours… as it is a kind of reformed Christian thinking that can pretty much be called a cult.
‘Deny… deny…. deny… and run to another subject.”
It such be fun.
One final note…. it has always amazed me how a man… Bin laden who was supposedly on dialysis could have been running in and out of caves and dodging American intelligence all of these years?
Either Bush lied about that too or the man was super-human.
Thanks again to those of you who have purchased my book, THE BISHOP’S WIFE. As I said in my last blog it is amazing… I cannot not believe how much my book is moving …and I thank you from the depths of my heart. Please let me hear from you regarding my book. I would love to know how you liked it… or didn’t like it… or whatever…. either way.
In fact, I have finally heard from someone. Their comment was “Should have gotten a copy writer.” Well, that comment bothered me because I believe in excellence. If let me apologize if you find this to be the case. I do find books littered with errors difficult myself.
And if you have yet to purchase my book I found this link over the internet via barnes&nobles.com where you can read bits of a couple of my chapters.
Well, God bless… it’s Saturday… hope you enjoy your weekend. I’ve got to get out of her and go get my hair done.
Thank you for reading this blog…and my others. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2012

THE DNC…the Democratic National Convention…is Mitt Romney’s money clean…SERENA & the U.S. Open… Aretha…
But 1 thing is for sure just as it was 4 years ago… I am still an Obama girl.
As in all campaigns there are some hits and misses… so too here. But when you stack it up side by side of DNC vs. RNC… it was the Democratic National Convention hands down over the Republican convention.
Well, for 1 thing most of the Republican speech givers must have taken a score of creative writing classes… because for the most part most of their speeches were all… for lack of a better word… creative. Very creative indeed.
Nothing like taking on a bit of self-responsibility…or in this case Party responsibility. The Republican Party lacks the desire to do anything but win. It does not matter to them how they win… they just want to win.
It must be sad that the only points you can give to your team are points that you have to make up. Creative 1.
Creative 2… you forget any role in anything.
Creative 3… and you pretend as though ‘we want to help you.’
When I think about Mitt Romney it is a marvel to me as to how he has gotten this far?
And THEY called Jim Kerry the ‘flip-flop’ kid. Romney is the master at it. No, I take that back… because it seems to me Mitt does not master anything. He just says 1 thing now… tomorrow he’ll say something that contradicts that… and say he didn’t say that of do that. Or he just allows his money to speak for him or do what needs to be done… and he goes from this to that saying-
And a lot of times when he gets caught at something and doesn’t know what to say… he just looks plain lost.
Either Mitt Romney suffers from the same thing as Clint Eastwood… or the last ship just pulled out of Pennsylvania Avenue. Which happens to be a major street way… as in roadway… not a water way. But to those suffering from some bout of disillusion… as a Mitt Romney or an aged Clint Eastwood it may seem like a major water way. Because the Republican Party for sure is up a creek without a paddle… with a man who seems to have nothing else going for himself except ‘money.’
I think that it is sad when you are asked to go to a convention and cheer for a man you don’t even like.
I must admit though that the Republicans who decided to throw in their hats into the ring as contenders to become the nominee for the Presidency on the Republican ticket were… Well, they were slim pickings. There is no other way to have put it. And out of that bunch of slim pickings came Mitt Romney, who gave an acceptance speech as their choice for candidate to run against President Obama… not because Mitt came with a whole lot of credentials… but rather money.
In fact, Mitt Romney has no real credentials that would make him eligible for any job. His stint as Governor of Massachusetts was a joke. The man was hardly there… and when you boil it all down… Mitt Romney did absolutely nothing for Massachusetts. Mitt Romney did zero… a big fat NOTHING.
I love when people pick up and move to some place just to run for political office. Hillary did hit when she and Bill departed the White House, moving to New York. Jeb Bush did it when he up-rooted himself and family from Texas to go south to Florida… where they by the way fixed the 2000 Presidential Election so his brother could win the Presidency. But Mitt left whatever state he came from to move north to Massachusetts.
Massachusetts is known for a great jumping off point for potential wanna-be Presidents. I cannot begin to tell you how many Presidential candidates have run from the state of Massachusetts… including Kennedy and Adams who both won. Dukakis ran… that guy with the red hair ran… Ryan I think his name was. And I don’t know how many others.
So, along came Mitt with his Presidential dreams… seeking to springboard himself into the number 1 seat in the White House from a state known to be a good launching pad… Massachusetts. Mitt did not move there… or rather set up a residence there by mistake.
Now, we are into 2012 and Mitt is running for that mantle for his fireplace up in the Alps. He likes titles… he wants people to call him ‘Mister President’ ‘Commander’… but he has not a plan… and we won’t take about ‘a clue.’ Which Mitt doesn’t have either. He just has money… and lots of it.
Herein lays Mitt’s dilemma… 1. Why should any American citizen want to even consider a man… much less vote for him… who has money locked away in a place-
Excuse me… I meant locked away in ‘not in a place’… but in an entirely different country other than his own… and paying no taxes on it?
2. Why does Mitt not want to divulge how much money he has?
Well, the only people I know… I mean whom I have heard about who do that with money who are criminals… big time drug dealers, thieves and robbers etc…
So, I’m wondering which 1 …or if Mitt Romney is them all?
Because if the money is clean… legit… then I can’t understand the problem Mitt is having releasing financial his information?
I mean we all know that there are rich people in this world… and some a lot richer than others. But they do not appear to be evading the issue of their net worth. So, why is Mitt?
You know when you live in the hood and hear all of those stories about how ‘the real’ drug dealers are not the ones walking the streets day and night trying to sell the stuff. That is really the truth. It is those big time Wall Street type… the type that have big jobs, lots of money and live in penthouses… who can afford the secret air strips and pilots it take to fly that stuff in. But the drugs never actually touch their hands …they just finance it.
They own the planes that fly the drugs in, the places where the drugs are cut or cooked, packaged and then disbursed. They reap all the real benefits of the drug trade… (if you want to call it that) but none of its negative publicity, images, hardships or dangers. The money goes to them… the real money… and they sit on top of the whole sha-bang looking as clean as a whistle.
So, Mitt where did you get all your money from?
I am more curious than ever… because try so hard to hide something there is usually a very good reason. And when you are dealing with a guy who seems to have an endless supply of money… such as a Mitt Romney… I think somebody should be asking him some intense questions about his finances.
Out of 6 or 8 other Republicans who ran along with Mitt to become President… Mitt just simply out spent them all. He had more money to spend than any of them. Which is the only reason Mitt Romney happened to get this far. And it has been his money that has kept him for his entire political life.
The Olympics take money… you can’t be a promoter of something like that without some really big capital to even consider financing it. Running in all the political campaigns for as many years as Mitt has …it had to cost him some major capital.
Good investments are 1 thing… but lots of people have made good investments and evidently do have what Mitt has by way collateral.
Mitt just how did you get all your money?
Rick Santorum vowed that he was staying in the race… that Romney’s money was not going to force him out of the race. But in the end even poor Rich just could not stand the test of time. He simply did not have that Mitt had… by way of money.
So, 1 by 1 all the other GOP would-be nominees bailed out. Mitt Romney it can easily be said won by default. And it happen because of a money deficit on the other’s sides. They just could not hang with Mitt and all the money he was spending.
Now, it’s Obama and Mitt. And I will say it… hands down its going to be Obama.
A Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney ticket cannot compare to an Obama/Obama/Biden ticket in anybody’s book.
Though I realized upon hearing about that HBO had a show about a Mormon family… from the moment I heard about it I knew what that program’s purpose was all about. It was designed to show America that Mormon families are just like everybody else. But they are not. And a show created to sugar coat real Mormon life …and designed to desensitize Americans to the real ways, religion and practices of Mormons was all done to make way for a Mitt Romney win into the White House.
That show was as much a ploy… and I should political ploy whose purpose was as much a form of propaganda movies during the Cold War. It came about to get people to feeling and saying-
“Oh, they are just like us.”
And if anyone looked real deep… they might even find out that it may have been financed either part or in whole by somebody tied to Mitt Romney or by Romney himself.
Inside the Mormon world …their close-knit families… their families are not just like ours. Their families look nothing like ours. They live by entirely different set of rules… and they believe differently.
Their worship is not the same… because their root beliefs are different. And their concept of family is different.
It is funny that when you google ‘what do Mormons believe’… it is interesting that there is no clear answer. But a variety of varied responses… like they believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost. And so does the devil.
Okay, then maybe you should ask what do they practice religiously?
I am thankful that my God gave me the freedom to be more than a baby factory…not to be just somebody who turned out child after child. Because that is pretty much the lives of Mormon women. It is a man’s world as James Brown used to sing in his song by the same title. The men within their group love that… so much so that age means nothing to them in consider to their pleasure and choice of wives.
So, I really do not understand any man who is supposedly running for the top political position in this country ….who does his banking in foreign banks… in order to hide his money. And I do not understand any man or woman who would want to lift up a man to rule in this country …who belongs to an organization that is very much a cult… and where the spirit and minds of women is stripped from them.
Came across a quick note about Patti LaBelle… and I was surprised to read it. I never thought she cussed or became so enraged that she would totally loose it. Never really seemed to be the type. And I must say that I have met her… and I found her to be quite nice.
It all happened in a confrontation with a woman… who I believe may have been pregnant… if I remember the story right. But was outside of a building that Patti was either entering or exiting and something or other happened that caused Patti to show a side of herself that I never would have never thought in her.
The confrontation cost Patti $100,000 in an outside of court settlement. Can’t imagined what happened that would have been worth that kind of payout… but Patti must have gone berserk… when she threw water on the woman and a few choice words.
Perhaps Patti reflected on it and felt so real bad about her poor behavior… and the possible shame of having this type of case go to court where people just like me… would have never thought Patti could have done such a thing… stare at her with their mouths wide open in disbelief.
But sometimes it is just a matter of it being a bad day… a very bad day. I do not know if you have ever had 1… but I have. The incident occurred while I was teaching in high school. My son had done something which had really upset me… and here came this student that had been acting stupidly in my class. Earlier in the day the actions of this boy I had let go by… I was being professional and I had not yet spoken to my son. But by noon I heard of something about my son that had worked me up… and here came this boy… and he either said something to me or did 1 last thing… and I said to him-
“I’m so mad I could leap up in the sky and kick you right in the face.”
It is when I realized that I was not cut out to be teacher material. So, when the school department tried to offer me another contract to teach the following year I said no. Besides I wanted to work on shooting my film and that had not become my focus… and goal.
Now, it wasn’t that I couldn’t handle it… teaching… or that I did not have control of my classes. No, nothing like that.
Students respected me and I respected them. But on that day… that boy crossed me at the wrong moment… and all my professionalism left me. When I went into class the next day…. I will tell you this… I was afraid his parents were going to be there waiting on me. I would have if my child had come home and told me a teacher had said such a thing to them. But evidently that boy never told it to his parents.
So, what I am saying here is that there are times when any 1 of us can lose it. But the difference is our names are not Patti LaBelle. And that does make a difference. But does not any less make such times less embarrassing… or just as shameful.
Talking about shameful. Happen to come across this picture of Patti and wondered if she is going through mid-life crisis?
I do not believe this looks decent even when the kids dress like this. So, you know seeing this photo was a thumb down from me.
It Patti is not going through some type of mid-life crisis… between this dress and her law suit actions …I do not know what is going on? I cannot figure another reason for Patti flashing as much flesh as this. Personally, I like the classy Patti better. I really think it is ridiculous when the young girls do this… and cannot understand any woman… older woman wanting to follow what the kids do.
When I heard Jesse Jackson answering a question about his son recuperating in an interview recently… I thought that it was that his son had had a stroke or something. The way that Jesse spoke about it and how he was smiling I would have never known anything otherwise.
I would never have thought that the Senator or Congressman… whatever he is… Jesse Jackson, Jr was in rehab due to a problem with drugs. He always seemed to be so on top of it… sharp …clear and on point about what he was doing… saying and about his service to the people he was voted to represent.
Hard to believe. But we pray that it all comes back together for him. And if it was just an illusion… that he gets it together for real.
Well, Serena is tearing up the tennis courts in New York at the U.S. Open. It is win…win ….win. And that she is … and she appears to be more determined to continue to do so.
Serena is going after her opponents with more power… and her mental game is so strong that the other female tennis players might as well not even walk onto the courts to face her.
Serena Williams is #1 in the world. The #1 female athlete. Highest grossing woman in sports …and the least celebrated. But she is slamming it home… ‘I’M #1!’ Respect me… fear me… and and try to beat me if you dare. And she is menacing threat because she is relentless… and packs as much physical strength as she does mental power.
And I noticed that ain’t nobody said nothing about Serena’s hair. Oh, I forgot she’s from Compton.
UPDATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012…Well, she is taking it home. Serena won it all once again… not only the top women’s trophy …but the big check that went along with it. She was a little more challenged in her final game, 6-2, 2-6, 7-5, but rose to meet the challenge.
I guess you could say-
“Another one bites the dust.”
Proud of this diva…for 1 thing because she never did what a lot of other artist have done or are trying to do. She has never forsaken her base of fans trying to seek after something else. Because ‘Retha already knew she had what she had… and if that wasn’t good enough too bad. (I’m smiling because I know how Aretha thinks) That’s what makes her the Queen…and she is second to none.
Thanks again to those of you who have purchased my book, THE BISHOP’S WIFE. As I said in my last blog it is amazing… I cannot not believe how much my book is moving …and I thank you from the depths of my heart. Please let me hear from you regarding my book. I would love to know how you liked it… or didn’t like it… or whatever…. either way.
And if you have yet to purchase my book I found this link over the internet via barnes&nobles.com where you can read bits of a couple of my chapters.
Sent most of day resting today. Had been busy this week… but glad to now be able to rest. Hoping you get your rest on this weekend too. Because the body does need rest… so give yourself some. You probably deserve it too. I know that I do.
Well, God bless… its TGIF… so I hope you enjoy your weekend.
Thank you for reading this blog…and my others. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2012

Yesterday I read that Sandusky’s lawyers released to the press that the young men coming out against Penn State ex-coach Jerry Sandusky were not victims… but people who were coming forth ‘for the money.’
And you know what?
Oftentimes, victims do come forward for the money. Sometimes it might move some who would not step forward otherwise. But regards victims… are victims. Sandusky used his power, position and a shaddy charity to take advantage sexually of very young boys. They deserved to make him pay.
What a crazy statement to make. Money can’t undo what Sandusky has done.
Of course they should come forth…but all the money in the world will never change what was stolen from those young boys. They are due whatever financial compensation they can get.
But it will never be enough.
Money cannot recover your manhood.
Money cannot restore your innocence.
Money cannot remove the guilt you feel as a child when someone violates you.
Money cannot replace that which was stolen.
Nor can money reclaim that which was eroded and may have been destoryed inside those young boys, when someone enters you into something you are too young to even understand.
There is no doubt that the man was… or is a pedophile. He destoryed lives… and people knew about it and turned blinded eyes on it. They should all go down.
It was criminal. And no one reported it.
In this kind of thing …and for the number of years that Sandusky had been involved with young children… I am sure that there are many more victims. And if the truth be told… I believe that Jerry probably had a few of his friends involved in it too.
Truthfully, it would not surprise me if a ring of pedophiles becomes exposed before this whole story wraps up. A ring of others involved that includes other football personnel from Penn State… and professional staff… and possibly even players on the Penn State teams too.
The world of pedophiles is very large… and encompasses all kinds of unsuspecting people. Men from all walks of life… who love little boys… and the younger the better.
N.A.M.B.L.E.R. is a national association of men who seek out young boys for sex. In fact its initals stand for National Association of Men and Boys etc… etc… This organization is large. And their motto is ‘eight is too late.’
Sick isn’t it?
In reading some of the articles that are now surfacing on this story about complaints against Sandusky at least 1 mother some time ago contacted Penn State… when her son came home with wet hair. She called the campus officals complaining that Sandusky had done something to her son. So for some time the powers that be upon the campus of Penn State knew. Not only did they know but they also allowed Sandusky to do his thing in their locker rooms and showers upon their campus… knowing what he was doing. And they never tried to stop him.
In almost all cases of predators… whether a school teacher, coach, Boys Scout leader, preacher, priest etc… they seek out victims of a certain nature. Usually children without a father… or come from troubled homes… underprivilged and/or minority children etc. Children who cannot help themselves …or come from parents who do not have resources. And so it was with Sandusky… and his fake little organization that had been supposedly set up to aid underpriviledge children.
In reading the Washington Times article on this story… it states that Sandusky lived only a mile away from an elementary school. People who are into children sexually… try to get as close to them as many ways as possible.
I recall as little child when walking to school how the cars were lined up just a little beyond the school yard… with white men trying to intrigue us into their cars. And I say ‘white men’ because I cannot remember seeing any vehicles with black men or any other race doing it. But I do know that all races have sexual offenders …and those who seek out little children.
Because even though the cars awaiting us on our school block just outside of our school yard were white men… I had encounter Hispanic men… and black men quilty of doing the same… trying to entice little children to lure them into sex. I eventually did become 1 of them that got lured.
But once while working in Jersey… I was on the bus riding somewhere in Newark when I happened to glance out the window. I saw a black man in the broad daylight… in the middle of people on the sidewalk. There he was with his penis in his hand following behind this very young little girl… who trying to escape him ran into a corner store. And that man went into the store right behind her… with his penis still in his hand.
That scene shocked me. I often lament that I did not get off that bus and go back to help that little girl. That thought of her …that little girl and that …and that MAN stays in my mind. And I will forever regret not getting off that bus.
Men travel all over the world to places where they can indulge with very young girls and boys freely. The child sex trade is big… and I guess exploding. So many poor children around the globe are being exploited everywhere… even in this country for money. Some given up by their own parents in exchange for drugs and alochol …and/or cigarettes. And in poorer countries in exchange for food, housing or whatever else the sale of their little child can bring.
What a curel world.
Sandusky threw himself into things which gave him massive access to a lot of little boys. Even in the founding of an organization that was supposedly set up to help and aid underprivilged children, Sandusky put himself in an arena that availed more and more little boys to him. So much so that his organization somehow got parents to allow their sons to go and stay in his home with him and his wife.
At least 1 victim alleged that he cried out for her to help him… and she did nothing. Sandusky’s wife would be party to Sandusky’s crimes if she did claim that she knew. But there is no way that she could not have known… especially since so many others did… and so much of it took place within their own home. And it appears that after a point the man began to feel that he was untouchable.
When the charges started surfacing… what did Sandusky do?
He called some of his victims to come and have dinner with him. Who does that?
The next thing that he lawyers are going to claim is that Sandusky is insane… and probably that he was a victim of abuse himself. They always play those same game cards. If they can’t see where they can win the cases 1 way… lawyers shift their game play and start saying ‘he couldn’t help himself.’ ‘He was under great strain.’ ‘His father never loved him’… and used to abuse him… or the man down the street… or his uncle. The story is always the same.
But if this were true than everyone would be a perpetrator… a pedophile… a sexual predator… an abuser of women, children and/or boys. But this is not so. And most people in some way or other have been abused.
If you remember John Gacy… the mass murder years ago from Chicago or a suburb outside of Chicago. He was a contractor who used to dress up as a clown and perform at all kinds of chartities, parades, kiddie parties etc. When a 15 year old turned up missing they discovered that Gacy had not only abducted him but killed him too. They found that Gacy had done the same to many other young boys …all of whom they discovered were buried behind the walls and under the floor broads of Gacy’s home.
We would all say that such a man must have been crazy.
How could he have done what he had done?
Now, that sounds crazy. But he was smart enough to continue to do what he had been doing for years. And who knows how long really that John Gacy had been raping and killing young boys before he thought about deposing of their bodies within the walls and floors of his own home?
Sandusky may look crazy now… and I would want to look crazy too if I thought I was faced with the rest of my life behind bars. But while he was grabbing a hold of those 10 and 11 year old boys… he wasn’t crazy. He was enjoying it… and worst of all he thought himself smart.
Didn’t say much about it… but it did not get pass me.
That Herman Cain was a real joke.
For a while it looked like the Republicans had decided to run a supposed ‘black man’ against President Obama. Now, that would have really have been a joke if they could have mustered it. But poor ol’ Herman had too many ghost in his closet.
The first thing I would like to look at regarding Herman Cain is why?
Why would you even think about running for President of the United States knowing what Herman knew?
Herman knew that he had a problem keeping his hands to himself.
Speaking of which… I have decided that I have really got to talk to some guy myself. Not Herman but somebody just like him.
Everytime I see this guy he has got to embrace me… and kiss me. I do not like it.
A couple of years I stopped the guy as he reached for me… saying ‘no.’ And I told him that I only wanted him to shake my hand if he had to make contact with me.
This I did… and I did write about this situation in a prior blog of mine. I did this after I was standing in a bank line …and the guy seeing me stepped into the bank, and then commenced to plant a kiss on the back of my neck.
Are you kidding me???????
At first it did not hit me… but when it did I was livid.
How dare that man sneak up behind me and kiss me on my neck …like he and I had something going on. Nothing could be further from the truth… but anybody witnessing that would have believed otherwise. The Bible tells us that we have to forsake even the illusion of un-holiness.
So, the very next time I saw the guy… here he came again reaching for me… and I stopped him. And I told him ‘no’ …and I broke it down for him believing I had settled that matter. And I had.
But it seems that he has totally forgotten that conversation these days.
If somebody told me that something I was doing made them uncomfortable… I would cease to do it. I respect other people’s space. But it seems that many people do not. And when it comes to men and women… men lack a lot of understanding. We don’t like just any ol’ body grabbing a hold of us… or kissing us.
And why should we?
Why does a woman have to tell you ‘no’ regarding anything pertaining to her?
It would seem that a man’s respect of women would automatically give way to the respect of her space.
But it does not. They clearly do not think like us.
Men feel that they can do to women whatever they want.
I do not feel it flattering to have some funky man grab a hold of me.
Nor do I just want everybody in this world to come and just freely lay a kiss on me.
Which is something that just happened to me only a couple of hours ago. Another person I wish would just stop.
With all the various disases going around… all kinds of things on people’s lips… tongues and mouth. No, I don’t want people coming up and kissing on me. And particularly people I certainly do not know… or hardly know… and plan on keeping that way.
Having worked for years with men… I am simply not tolerant of a lot of things now. Like I don’t want anybody calling me ‘baby.’ I listened to them calling each other ‘man’ and referring to each other by their names… but when it came to me… is was ‘honey.’
I was not anybody’s ‘honey.’ I had a name… and that name was just fine with me. My parents gave it to me… and called me by it all their lives.
So, why not everybody else?
But it was a way of degrading me… minimizing me. And it is a thing which men love to do to women in the work force.
They like keeping us in ‘our place.’
Herman Cain… it was clear to me even when I first heard him speak …that he was the kind of man I would have never liked working for. He sounded arrogant… puffed up… and filled with himself. Narcissistic in every possible way.
Which would account for why he would believe …knowing his history with women… and how many women who had filed charges against him… why he would think that such a man with ‘that kind’ of a history …as his would be qualified to run, and be sucessful in a bid for the Presidency of this country.
Yes, that would explain why.
I only say 1 thing… Bill Clinton.
And maybe you might say… John Kennedy too.
Okay, I’ll give you that. We could include the Senate and Congress too. And while we are going at it… let us not stop there… but include Governors and other elected officials… police officers… company heads etc… And we could go on forever… and this list does not exclude women. Because there have been a few.
Moral standards are not what they used to be… nor are they required it seems. Why would you quiz and question canidates for certain Cabinet offices in this country… and just allow people with obvious character fawls run for the highest office of this country?
Or any office?
Or run any school?
Or head up any church?
What are we thinking?
How could we be so caught up with people that we are willing to just lay aside certain obvious faults in their moral nature?
As much as I used to feel that I liked Bill Clinton back in the day… that’s slang for when he was President… and/or running for President… the truth of matter is this. The man had issues.
Herman Cain had and has issues. And his were bigger than Clinton’s. Because the man dotted upon himself so much… and saw no wrong in ‘him.’
What an egomaniac?
And lets not negate Herman’s propensity for lying.
“Who lies about things that are a matter of legal record?”
Forget ‘999’… it would have been more like ‘666’ if Herman got in.
Now, going back to the game plan. The plan was to chump up Cain to run against Obama. Thereby pitting 2 black men against each other… which ‘they’ felt would split the black vote. This in turn would allow… ‘their’ real guy… an outside canidate to ease into a win, and take the White House.
That was the political game plan of some key Republicans. It was the way that they were hoping would guarantee a win for them and their party.
Do we really look that DUMB????
We are really not the dumber race. Believe that if you believe nothing else.
Because ‘you’ had to know that was a game the Republicans was playing …by pretending Herman Cain was so popular among Republicans.
Who were they kidding?
Most Republicans hate Obama. And they hate him for the most part for no other reason than the fact that he is a black man.
And how dare he be black …and smart too.
Everything that Obama has tried to do the Republican Party has blocked. Any bill or intitative to get American moving and back on track they have hindered. Even down to refusing federal funds to begin rebuilting America’s infrastructure. All for the pleasure of claiming that Obama is a failure.
But Obama is not a failure. Failure is something which is not in Obama’s vocabulary. Nor does he believe in quitting because it appears that the deck is stacked against him. And do note the word ‘appears.’
I have come to know that oftentimes it not what it ‘appears’ to be… that is what actually is. That’s why I do not follow polls. Learned in my statistics class… No, it was in 1 of my poli-Sci classes on research… that taught me ‘it is how you phrase the question‘… to get the answer that you want. Pollsters are paid by interest groups… parties that want to slant whatever their interest is… in their favor by misleading people on a bunch of supposed facts that many times are not true and are meaningless.
So, the polls that showed Cain to be a favorite…
No, way in the world were the Republicans going to put any black man into the White House. And never 2 black Presidents… back to back?
They would have all curled up and died first.
So, that whole thing about Herman Cain was a myth. They were never going to let him in the White House. Not unless he was going in delivering some pizza.
Must say though that it is a shame when men in power be they white or black… or any nationality… sit in power, and chose to abuse the power vested in them. By proving themselves less than moral. They have no character. Cain clearly is a man without character.
If they choose not to say anything else about Obama… at least his character is certainly not an issue. And his desire to uphold the values of his office, and that as a husband and family man are sure and true.
Well, hope you had a good day. We haven’t had any more snow. But it has been cold. And for a while we had lots of rain… but that is sure to change as we move closer and closer to Christmas.
Hoping you have a joyous Christmas …just in case I do not post another blog between and Christmas just thought I would get it in now.
Well, God bless… and enjoy the rest of your week.

Who in the world is ACORN?
Well, first of all ACORN is an acronym which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Hence…Acorn. It is an organization which advocates for poor people.
But what I did not understand was…
And why were certain news organization declaring-
“An Acorn cover-up.”
And who was covering up what?
And for what reason?
I had read some of this article below…and began wondering why…what scandal…and why was some organization named ‘Acorn’…in danger of of losing its funding?
To answer my first question….who was Acorn?
During the 2008 Presidential Election a community based organization whose home head-quarters in New Orleans, LA…Acorn came into the spotlight as Republicans began to cry foul…if you can imagine that. It is kind of like the pot calling the kettle ‘black’…if you get my drift.
Well, they called ‘foul’ because Acorn…which had opened up numerous offices around the United States…began organizing and registering voters on Obama’s behalf.
Following the Primaries the Republicans started accusing Acorn at that time of using false and fraudulent tactics as alleging that Acorn was registering dead people…etc..etc. And primarily these charges stemmed from actions in Florida.
Because Florida and Michigan chose to break a rule set up the Democratic Committee that no state should hold a primary before a specific date…which both the State of Florida and Michigan ignored. So, they therefore lost the right to participate in the Democratic Primary Presidential Election…the race between Obama and Hillary Clinton.
But within states around the country a group emerged called Acorn which began organizing the urban communities…gearing them up for the final showdown. The day in which Americans would entered into their ballot booths to cast their votes for who would become the President of this country for the next 4 years…of which Barack Obama won solidly over Bush.
Part 2 of my question…about Acorn and the questions surrounding its organization…and their current problems.
But it was during the days leading up the ballot day that a little known organization called Acorn began popping up in the news, as the Republicans began slinging shots…and trying to throw whatever punches they could at the Obama campagin.
To find out more about the rule that Florida and Michigan failed to abide by prior to the Democratic Primary read the LINK BELOW.
This controversy about Acorn has been brewing for quite some time now. And of course, with Obama sweeping Nevanda, Colorado, New Mexico, California, Ohio, Virgina…and Florida… could the contention and rage over his win get any greater?
The Republicans have only been trying to discredit Obama in any matter and way they can…as proven by Joe Wilson’s rude outburst, which I wrote about in blog on civility. From trying to cliam that Obama is not legally an American citizen…to trying to disregard Hawai as being an offical state of this country (being the birthplace of Obama)…to trying to rig and provide false papers which they claim to be Obama’s African birth certificate. What they call…‘his real birth certificate.’
For years in this country black folks birth certificates have been messed with. From writing down things properly…to not properly recording them…to not properly keep up with our records. My birth name was messed up so bad…that my parents had to legally amend my birth certicate with a change of name shortly after my birth. Not to mention that my grand-mother went to her grave not knowing her correct birth date…as is the case with our Aunt Kate, who is still very much alive today. I suspect that if she were to seek public office in this country…she would have a real problem. Even though she was unquestionably born and raised here in America. But racist practices in properly documenting black folk in the existed then…and still do.
And such allegation concerning the legitimacy of Obama to President of this country…comes from a group of people who out and out stole the 2004 Presidential Election right out from under Al Gore, the Democratic opponent of George W. Bush. And it had been done illegally… bogusly… and without fear of any pentalty. They just did it…didn’t care who saw…who knew…or who didn’t know. And all of America knew…it was not hard to miss.
It had been the most outragous campaign of all times…and of any country. Which is why George W. Bush will certainly go down in history as a big fat question mark…for having been the most illegitimate President that the United States of America has ever had.
And what a joke that election was. What a farce. And for the first time in American History…as we know it…an illegitimate cadidate took possession of this country’s White House and made a mockery of our entire political system…and country.
And not only that…but sunk this country into the lowest levels of political integrity…moral standing…and financial lossess…coupled by a fraudulent war which he conjured up. A war which
has cost this country vast resources, lives…and a waste of our political time and efforts. A war that unleashed centuries of stored up hatred and antimosities…religious strife…and massive unrest in the Middle East.
During the 2004 it was widely known that the Republicans rigged the election…and hindered people in urbans from casting their votes. They had various voting locations declare some legitimate voters as being dead…and others as ex-convicts in order to stop them from voting…as well as, other such tricks. Such as, having voters stand for prolong periods of time out in the rain…provided urban areas with broken ballot machines…had women leave their pocketbooks outside…slowed up the balloting process that long lines gathered etc… All to deter voters for the Democratic Party. Not to mention the rigging of ballots…mis-counting of ballots…loosing and all those other in-side jobs which they easily arranged. …hinged ballots…
And this country sends people out to monitor the balloting procedures of other countries?
Going back to Acorn…having been under the fire for some time now…evidently their efforts were effective. The did manage to register some 1.3 million new voters. All the more reason why the other party would want to do away with them.
It kind of reminds me of when this country decided un the stern and ambiguous eye of the then House Leader, Newt Gingrich…who felt that the National Endowment of the Arts grants were to liberal in their giving out of funds. So, he moved to act upon limiting those funds from being given out to individuals…but to people like himself…and organization etc. Today, you hardly hear much about those funds…though they still are given out but in a very different way and under far different circumstances.
Today, when you hear this guy talk…he sounds more like a summer breeze…as opposed to that typhoon he used to be. I suspect that being taken down a notch or 2 can do that to you.
Now, definitely going back to Acorn.
It seems that some videographer enter into a couple of their offices for some reason or other. This videographer along with a women…that he or she brought with them. Supposedly, during these meetings the videograper was given by a worker…or workers at the organization (Acorn office)…to become not-for-profit and open up their own brothel…or in other words whore house…prostitution den.
Which if it is true…it would not reflect back on Obama…as he is not really tied to that organization other than it assisted in getting out the vote…which many other people also did too…and I was one of them.
However, in any office…supposed office…or business…or supposed busines you are subject to fall upon some type of illegal activity. Which does not necessarily mean that those in management or corporate heads know anything about. You can, in fact, find out about how to do all kinds of things while sitting in your workplace…including how to cheat on your husband or wife. There are crooket…and bad people everywhere. And they usually know right where to go…to run whatever game they are trying to run.
Recently, in my town they closed down a couple of used car dealerships…neither of which I believe had anything to do Obama…or his being elected President. But one was closed for selling drugs and using the dealership as front. And the other…I guess you could say they were in the money laundrying business…using their used cars to thash cash.
I suspect that if the Republicans could tie Obama to either of them…they would. And heavens forbide if somehow they could make a connect to both of them…and Obama.
I hope Obama didn’t happen to buy a car at either of those 2 dealerships. You know…like he bought his house. That was tied to some other alleged criminal.
Big Brother is watching.
Part of the problem is…is that the Republicans will not stop at nothing to get their candidates in. Nothing to taboo for them. They play a political anything goes game in order to win. They cross state lines…double and triple voting wherever they can. During the primaries they sign up as Indedpendants seek ing to swing elections towards cadidates that are weak and more favorable to them…in order to fix elections by giving their real cadidate of choice (a Republican) in the overall election a upper hand.
I have no doubt..that they have and continue to put people into place to do their will. People who operate as fake agents …or workers (if you will)…pertending to the opposite side. When in fact…they were plants (Republican plants)… who went under-cover…crossed over to the other side…to do fraudulent work…create false documents…and to put bogus names onto lists.
Hence, the real scandal…and the real cover-up.
Then the Republicans come around as they always do…wanting to look innocent…and appearing to be the squeaky clean whistle blowers. Crying ‘foul’…‘foul.’ When in fact…it is them who are the foul ones.
It is interest the way that the Republicans always seemed to know exactly what the problems are…and where they lay.
Because they put certain people into place to purposely cause the problems and issues…which they later turn around and begin pointing out as being fraudulent. These type of games are old…and go way back in history…where many of these very schemes were first hatched…by other other political crooks.
It is such a shame that such a group operates in this country…who are clearly anti-American when they indulge in such under-handed behavior…and deceitful practices.
Recently, Acorn has requested an independant investigation into the actions of some of their employees. The Senate to block the Housing and Urban Development from giving grants to Acorn, along with the U.S. Census Bureau had dropped Acorn and its involvement in the 2010 national census. And of course under these last allegation of being a training ground for how to own and operate your own brothel…the White House has been forced to also move away from Acorn.
I barely got any sleep last night.
And then the other reason is…is…
Well, those raccoons are back. Not that they ever left…as I have yet to have the money to seal up the roof. So, they are living in our attic.
But last night after getting in I stepped back out on the porch…and that is when I heard a noise. I thought it was pesty neighborhood cat…which sometimes sits upon our porch waiting on my neice’s cat to come out.
So, I picked up the water hose and sprayed some water over in the direction of the noice. And saw the thing move…and that is when I happened to catch a glimsp at what appeared to be 2 white circles around it’s eyes.
Not certain I went back into the house and got my flash light. I opened the screen-door and shot the light over into the far corner of my parent’s porch and there it was. Yes…a raccoon.
It seemed to be trying to hide. And appeared to indecisive.
So, I tried to talk it out of corner and off the porch…while I quickly punched in a call to our local police station. As I talked on my cell…the raccoon quietly left the porch. It seemed timid…mayold…possibly frighten. And I felt bad for her…or him…or whatever it was.
But they have got to go. The thing was huge…and I am not exegerating. I was at least a foot and half long…not including it’s big and long tail. And it was about a foot high in width.
No, that has got to go. No matter how bad I feel for it. I just don’t want them hurt. But I have got to get them out of our house and away from our home. I have far too many young neices and nephews. And I would hate to see anything happen to any of them because I sat around doing nothing about our raccoon problem.
So, today I walked around the outside of our house checking to see exactly where it is that they are entering into and out of our property. It is via our roof. Some rotting has taken place along various portions of our roof. And as I walked around examing our weather beaten root… I was calling upon the name of Jesus.
Because those raccoons have got to go.
Well, hope you had a less eventful day and night.
One thing I can say though…my neice’s cat is no fool.
The raccoon which had gotten into kitchen…when I initally realized we had a problem…she chased out that raccoon…and up the stairs back into the attic. But this raccoon…was much bigger than her. Though she did go out on the porch…she never approached that corner…and got low to the ground the whole time she was out there. And my neices cat is usually no joke…she is a real killer.
She must have been able to tell that that raccoon was a big one.
But I am going to have a talk with that…because she can’t be punking out on me.
And after I laid down and thought about…since I could not fall asleep. The thought came to me…that with all the hermones and everything else put into our food…it is little wonder that that raccoon was so big. She and others like her wander around the neighborhoods at night searching for scrapes to feed upon.
And if the chemical put into food…in order to make it grown bigger…get fatter…effects our bodies…and that of our children the way that it does. Then what about whatever else that feeds upon anything that we eat?
I can everything becoming super-sized. And I am not kidding.
You would have had to seen the size of that raccoon.
We all need to consider what it is that we are doing to this planet…our food…produce…water ways etc… And these animals are also being impacted by our lack of good judgement.
That thing was huge.
“That 1 bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush.”
Just saw the below picture and just could not resist adding it. It is so beautiful. Put you in mind of what we are in store for next…by way of weather. I don’t know where you are…but it is cold here already.
Well, God bless…

But last night’s returns brought an end to all of that. Hope is very much alive….and as they say in England, “Long live the Queen.”
We now can say, “Long live the king!”
And king he is…in every possible way.
- King in campaign funds raised.
- King in how his campaign was run.
- King in getting the youth vote out.
- King in out-performing his opponent.
- King in the ability to articulate his message.
- King in securing the votes needed to put him over the top.
- King in his ability to bring people together.
- King in rallying up his forces.
- King in being able to maintain his cool under the microscope.
- King in turning some key Red States into Blue States.
- King in being able to secure confidence in people that he could do it.
- King in capturing the attention of the world.
- King in making the America and world feel that America can once again regain the respect and leadership role she once held among other nations.
- And king in his willingness to accept that it is not going to be easy but that he had the personality, the skills, the attitude and confidence to get the job done in order to re-establish America…rebuilt her…and secure her.
It’s Obama, baby.
Could this miracle in America have happened without the aid and support of everyday people like you and me…it is very unlikely. Barrack Obama expressed it well last night when he said, “When I got started, I wasn’t the most likely candidate.”
But people like you and me who believe that America can do anything…and that she is worth the effort of going out and seeking to make her the best that she can be. Many times it does mean that we have to come together and overlook our differences so that we might seek good over evil. Because at the end of the day…we all care about the exact same things…our children and the future direction of this country.
I am elated at the choice we made last night. It was the right choice and it was a good choice. And when I woke up this morning after staying up most of the night waiting on the returns from California and the other West Coast states…I woke up feeling relieved and excited about America and about the new course she will now be on. A course of healing and reconciling…mending and re-befriending.
Once again America can hold her head up high as we are at last finally about to come from under the dark cloud of the Bush Administration.
As you watched and listened to President Obama last night delivering his acceptance speech…you saw in his body language, demeaner and facial expressions that he realized the difficulty of the job that was now ahead. It won’t be easy. But for some reason I sense that Barrack Obama would have it no other way. The challenge is one he recognized from the onset. And yet…he decided to take it. I feel assured that he is going to pull America through these times of hardship like Roosevelt did in the 40’s. http://www.whitehouse.gov/history/presidents/fr32.html
One can sense that Obama seeks neither fame nor glory…but that he saw a need and felt that there needed to be someone in the right place to faciliate that need. And that person should be him…because he genuinely cared about the direction of America. Not only for himself…but for his children…and also for us all.
America has been hurting for 8 long years…and now we can all breathe a sigh of relief. A new day has arrived…and it is a done deal. Barrack Obama is now President of the United States of America.
Highest amount of money ever raised for any cadidate during any election in American history ( over $700 millions raised by the Obama Campiagn)
Highest voter turnout in over 40 years for a Presidential Election
Race proved not a factor…more white men, white women and Hispanic voted for Obama than for John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential Election between Kerry and George Bush…as well as those from various other racial groups in America
Virginia, Florida, New Mexico, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Indiana, Colorado, North Carolina all turned to Blue States for the first time since 1968, voting for a Democratic President, Barrack Obama.
The highest number of college students participating in an American election ever
Over 95% of the African American vote…over 66% of the Hispanic vote…over 52% of women’s vote…over 42% white male vote
The tears last night in Oprah Winfrey’s eyes and Jessie Jackson’s eyes spoke volumes. If you really want to know what this monumental moment in history really means to and for so many people…then those tears told you the story. Oprah and Jessie were not the only ones crying. There were hundred of thousands of others…including me…crying. There were those who remembered when the only time a black man stood in the middle of a square before crowds of people in this country…he was standing on the auction block wating to be sold off into slavery.
They also were crying because they remember the fire hoses and the police dogs which had been unleased upon black people to keep them from marching to demand a right to vote in this country. A right to enter a department store and to be able to walk up the lunch counter and order something to eat without being spat upon then beat and chased out of the store.
days that John, Martin and Bobby were killed. And now God has bless them and us all to see this day.
I am so happy for this day.
God bless ‘…pass it on…’ www.bsmith101.wordpress.com God bless…and thanks again for reading ©2008

There is no doubt that the Republican Party has a real problem. That problem really became evident during the fight that ensued following the Presidential Elections 2000. Their problem is…they don’t know how to play fair.
The Republican Party is full of a bunch of cheats who don’t mind using a series of underhanded tricks to get their candidates in office. And their games are just beginning.
There is no doubt that tomorrow will be mared with lots of little maneuvers devised to keep certain voters from showing up at polling locations around America, and/or to give them a hard and fustrating time tomorrow at the polls.
During the 2004 Elections between George Bush and John Kerry, in Ohio it was broken balloting booths which kept vast numbers of black voters standing in the rain for hours trying to wait on their turn to cast their vote. Only to find that when they finally got inside the women were asked to leave their pocketbooks outside.
What kind of nonsense was that?
Yesterday while watching the political spin pundits on the various Sunday programs…it was stated that letters had gone out in various states informing people that the election was not going to be held on Tuesday, tomorrow…but on Wednesday instead.
Now, in Philly the black community is being hit with flyers telling them they will be arrested at the polling locations for having an unpaid parking ticket.
When I have gone to vote a couple of times…I have been told that I couldn’t because my name was not on the list. Only to find out later that my name had been removed for a censuses form that was not returned.
These are the games they play. And they are devised to created as many hangups, confusion and as much fustration to certain voters as they can…in order to have them turn around and leave without casting their vote.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who would be trying to keep the number of voters low on tomorrow. I’ll give you one guess.
Okay, then let me say it like this.
Who would reap the most from such underhanded political pranks?
One thing is for such it is not the Obama campaign.
Yes, it is those underhanded, lying, cheating and cakniving thieves…known as the Republican Party.
Do yourself a favor and just drop by your voter registration office today and ensure that all your information is up to date. It just may save you the headache of having to deal with some unexpected problems tomorrow.
It’s not fair…but sometimes you just got to learn how to out smart the crooks.
I’ll be looking for you tomorrow at the polling places from state to state.
