Taxpayers Fund a Losing Political Process

In Congress, democrats, elections, politicians, politics, Race and Class on January 13, 2016 at 2:15 am

My young adult son constantly barrages me with political questions while giving a lot of historical facts that are amazing.  For example I asked him why are some of the Irish so dark.  He said Spain. Why are the Indians from India so dark? He said Persia, and on and on and on. Today I had to tell him that black people might protest themselves into apartheid because they will not vote.  Ferguson is a huge example. Instead of voting in and voting out proper and improper political representation the citizens of Ferguson let a situation simmer and than burn out of control.

It is easy for me to say that citizens don’t vote.  However as I pondered this explanation, the core reason is citizens don’t vote because the United States funds two political parties that don’t really want people to vote. The party that is the guiltiest is the democratic party as the former first lady treats the presidency like a dog with a bone and the democratic party supports it.  In a fair world this first lady would be gracious and say I’ve been in the white house for eight years and I want my legacy to be helping another woman to get into the white house. Not in the two party system we live in. Not where politicians have almost scotus credentials in elected political offices.

If tax payers fund political parties the U.S. should mandate that parties engage in political educational activities,publicly post meetings, and have a minimum of four candidates on ballots. Furthermore, elections should be clearly announced and efforts should be made to recruit people of all backgrounds. At this point the United States is stuck on something not resembling democracy because of the selfishness of the politicos in office. It needs to stop and it needs to be regulated.

Should I say Witch or Bitch this Week

Meet Senator Witch

The Republican Senate candidate for Delaware used to be a witch.  Perhaps the words that one should pay attention to more than “anything” else is used to citing she used bad judgement and was just a high school student when she briefly experimented with cauldrons.  While we live in a country with religious freedom and being a witch should not prevent anyone from being a senator, it should be noted that Norah Odonll is citing that she used bad judgment when she put on a black hat in high school.    It just seems rather weird that in high school she was a member of the fringe witch society and now in adulthood she is suddenly a member of the fringe cult like movement of the Tea Party and trust me when she has grandchildren and they are exposed to pictures of the Tea Party parade holding pictures up with racially derogative information about President Barack Obama, she will then have a moment of, I used bad judgement when I joined that Tea Party Movement to her grandkids.

While I who have a basic liberal mind can understand a child being a witch at 18.  I can’t understand a person who wants to be anything in life (actress, teacher, doctor, nurse)  besides Black Sabbath or an attorney openly admitting they were or had been a witch in their late twenties. Seven years after she graduated from high school Norah O’Donnell was openly and proudly admitting that she had been a witch. ……….

The basic point is O’Donnell sort of makes a mockery of any movement she may join; yesterday a witch, today she’s having Tea.  One wonders if her mind can concentrate on a senate issue long enough to vote on it or as in Palin’s case will she just resign if elected when she sees the opportunity to be a part of DIA.  Demons in Action……….

Barack Obama Town Hall – Excuses Excuses Excuses It’s Getting Bitchy Up in Here

The beauty of the presidency is that you are supposed to be the president of what may be the most powerful country in the world.  Some of the things that Barack Obama’s says are really jarring.  Last week he was literally bitching about how the food bank was running low.  You’re the president already do something don’t bitch about it.  As a black woman I personally think he dos not like us that much a person of another race can say anything they want about him and he’ll appoint them to a cabinet position but the minute a black woman expresses her disappointment in a Town Hall meeting he  goes postal on her……….  I’m sorry Michelle can’t or won’t pat you on the back when you cry ……..you can’t have everything…….. but don’t take it out on my black sisters that’s your decision not ours.

The Eye of Newt

All:
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Second Witch:

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the cauldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt     , and toe of frog,

Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,

Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,

Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Shakespeare’s Macbeth

Newt’s new issue of 1,000,000 is will Sharia law replace U.S. law.  OK Newt have you been popping pills with Glen  Beck or has O’Donnell popped a cauldron soaked mushroom in your mouth.  Out of all the thoughts that pop into Newts mind it’s always the craziest and wackiest.  Sometimes I wonder how many times Newt was dropped on his head when he was a Baby. CHRIST or Should I say Good Witch, I want to have respect for everyone’s religion you know .  Let Me know….




Why Barack Obama is having Polling Problems

As the polls fall for our Golden Boy Barack Obama, it is tempting for his staunch supporters to argue that Obama is the victim of racists or that the reason things have not totally turned around is because of all the luggage left by George Bush. While these arguments may hold a little sway, the truth is that Barack Promised us change and what we essentially got was more of the same in far left clothing and shall I dare say in a less compassionate package than George Bush Jr.

After Barack Obama was elected it became extremely apparent that he was not going to diverge much from his predecessor George Bush. While some believed that when it was time to appoint cabinet members Obama would appoint cabinet members with the finest credentials Pulitzers, nobels, and other such folks Obama had another agenda on his mind, he made cabinet appointments of people who were his friends, acquaintances and yes men. He essentially used the spoils system when appointing staff just like his predecessor George W. Bush. For example he made the superintendant of Chicago Public Schools the Secretary of Education for all of our students despite the fact that Chicago had one of the highest dropout rate of students in the country; Tim Geithner could not figure out his taxes let alone be expected to solve the economic problems of the nation; a governor appointed to head Health and Services instead of a career professional within the organization made and makes the Obama presidency problematic and leads a rational human being to question his motives and common sense. The reason Barack Obama can not blame George Bush for the problems now affecting the United States is because President Obama left his A game at home failing to realize that his logic and common sense would not be enough. President Obama thought he could choose anyone for the very complex jobs of running the nation because he thought the President could do anything and make up for the short comings of his staff. Gomer Pyle came to town with his sergeant in hand because he was his friend.

This is where the Palin phenomena begins to come into play. Palin is definitely not very smart. This has to be said twice Palin is not very knowledgeable, but she may be smart enough to run a country in knowing the difference between what the country needs and what she may want. She may want Cousin May to be head of Health and Human services but she knows the country needs something more than cousin May, and this may seem a rather extreme comparison when juxtaposed with Palin’s rather basic rudimentary college degree with Barack Obama’s super elite circle Obama’s cabinet appointments boil down to appointing Palin’s Cousin May. As the American people observe this they begin to seriously doubt that change will happen under the Obama administration and look and wait for something different and hope it comes.

Like Bush enormous dollars go out of the United States treasury to various entities but people really believe that the money gets siphoned off to friends as in the Bush administration. I think what has set the last two administrations apart from other administrations are the excesses of money leaving the U.S. coffers and no one knowing where it ends up. The citizens of the United States see constant spending but no effective change, they are not experiencing the trickle nickel effect and are beginning to suspect those nickels are lost in the air. As public opinion starts to go against Barack Obama the folks of the United States are beginning to say they liked George Bush better. This is because many believe that Barack Obama would step on Granny to get across the street. This is because of the caviler treatment of babies, executive orders to continue using them for research, lip service to education, and all that money flowing out for new causes. As time goes on we begin to question if President Obama has a heart. Whereas innately the American people knew that on a personal level the former President George Bush could not face a wrong and let it continue, think the Iraq war was never real to him but a third term baby is real. This is what is lacking from President Barack Obama the human touch while he can recite lofty ideas one ultimately believes that if he saw ya being carjacked he’d keep driving.

Congratulations Barack Obama and The United States For Your Nobel Prize Win

Barack Obama has brought International prestige and acclaim to the United States with the winning of the Nobel Peace prize.  While the prize was shocking to many, if the citizens of  United States would close their eyes and remember why they voted for him they would realize that he deserves and earned the Nobel Peace Prize.  I can not say that I necessarily agree or even know clearly the rationale of the Nobel committee for awarding the Nobel Peace prize to Barack Obama but I can articulate why I think he deserves the prize.

Barack and Michelle  Obama deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for first of all being able to transcend themselves.  In a world that frequently says you can’t and in a country that had never had a President of color The Obama’s said “Yes We Can”.   They said Yes We can and Did.  Barack Obama did not come from a two parent home with Daddy throwing him up to the sky every night,   Barack Obama even mentions that he comes from a home where people may have told him they were scared of black men because he was raised by his caucasian grandmother.    President OBama’s history and his subsequent accomplishments are a beacon of light to every child around the world who experiences controversies and problems in their lives.  The ability of Barack Obama to overcome himself and his environment is a world class accomplishment, Nobel Prize worthy because one of the hardest things for people to do is to overcome themselves.  Many great thinkers have written about this Napoleon Hill, recitations of the words of Jesus and others.

Barack Obama deserves the Nobel Prize by helping to prove to the world that the United States is not full of racists who hate black people and that the notion that an American Dream is possible for all is a reality not a notion for whites only.  In a sociology class I learned about the third generational theory that all European racial groups who come to the United States can meld into the fabric of the United States and eventually become white or plain American, whereas people of color Asians, Blacks, Latinos, were subsequently out of luck and could never really melt because of their race into an American characteristic.  Barack Obama and the United State shattered this myth by voting for him as President by actually implementing the words of Martin Luther King “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”.  The various races of the United States gave Barack Obama a mandate.  Barack Obama was not a president installed by force, given to the United States by some International Super Power he was democratically elected by the American people who said that we don’t care about race anymore just someone willing to work for our interests.

As for the significance of Barack Obama post election we the American People seriously hope that he will use the slogan YES WE CAN to solve our problems as well as take the attitude of YES WE CAN to the world and help solve their problems.      As for what has gone wrong with the Presidency up to know, by and large Obama and the Democrats refuse to ignore the voices that did not elect them.  The only way Obama can keep his promises is to ignore the voices of dissension and keep a straight path and fulfill his promise.

Rahm Emmanuel is criticizing Paul Krugman, maybe it’s because Krugman should have been head of Obama’s economic team but Emmanual dropped the ball. Gordon Brown’s trip to the United States to talk about the Global economy just goes to show that the man who won a Nobel Prize for his global economic theories should be in the Obama cabinet; maybe the stock market would not fall every time the obama economic team opened their mouth if Krugman were heading the team.

A top economic man who is not smart enough to do his taxes correctly is troubling.  I am also troubled that some Republicans are coming out with a stamp to stamp under the fed chiefs name on the U.S. currency that says tax cheat.  Why doesn’t the current fed chief just resign and let the Nobel Prize Winner in Global economic Theories take the helm.  This is not a game.

U.S. May Boycott U.N. Racism Conference Over Document – UN Accuses Israel of Being Racist

U.S. May Boycott U.N. Racism Conference Over Document – washingtonpost.com.

If the shoe fits wear it.  Israel has behaved terribly towards the Palestinians, kicking them off their land, out of their houses, bombing and killing them and creating an extremely unstable situation for their lives and the lives of their children.  In the least a dialogue should be had by the U.N. exploring the actions of Israel not just towards the Palestinians but towards Lebanon also. 

Everyone understands that the Palestinians have shot over a few harmless missiles over the fence with a minimal loss of life but nothing justifies the mass murder of hundreds of people that occured late last year.  I understand that the issues the U.N. wants to discuss are from before this year but surely the actions of Israel last year should be discussed and evaluated also.  Is the administration refusing to attend this conference because of the high net-worth donors in the Jewish community.  Even now some do not understand the Crucifixion of Christ, I personally do not understand the Crucifixion of the Palestinians.  Hopefully the United States will not stand by and advocate the annihilation and genocide of the Palestinians.

The Case For Co Ed Prisons One Social Problem is Leading to Another

Prisoners likely to take home AIDS

Curiosity Killed the Cat

I have begun a dreamboard.  Today in order to be really thorough about what I was looking for I decided to look for a picture of a penis to put behind  my dream board.  I was a little taken aback to see that I could not find one that was straight or not with a Caucasian in the first several pages of Google.  Even so the gay black penises outnumbered the black penises with Caucasians.   I just finally gave up with an awful awful bad taste in my mouth.  I had to sit there and wonder if black people could sustain a society where it’s beginning to look like a large group of the male population are openly gay or on the DL.

As my thoughts roared through my mind I understood that a percentage of every population will include people who are just absolutely positively homosexual and can’t help it but the male homosexual population seems to be accelerating in the black community like Moores Law, exponentially.  While personally I subscribe some of it to the lack of male role models, economic hardship and exploitation, children without fathers, the water, the chicken etc.  My personal opinion is that the generations and gnerations of different incarcerated men are one of the main factors contributing to the incredible rise and acceptance  of homosexuality in the black community.

According to the American Sociological Association 20% of black men born between 1965 and 1969 had served prison time before they were the age of thirty compared to three percent of white men .  The rate of incarceration for black males went up significantly based upon what level of education they had.  Thirty percent of black high school graduates had served prison time by their early thirties and close to sixty percent of high school dropouts had served time in the Federal Penitentiary by the time they were thirty.  These numbers are just totally unacceptable and indicate a profound problem in the United States of America as it relates to black Americans and black society. With dropouts in recent years reaching close to fifty percent, it is becoming increasingly obvious that if alternatives and solutions are not implemented to help these men that the United States will face a crisis that it will not be able to handle.

As for homosexuality and the prison population, I personally think that a coed solution needs to be implemented immediately while the risks are obvious by making the prison population coed like pregnancy.  An implementation of a coed prison system could be a choice that prisoners make with the agreement that they take injectable birth control monthly.  Obviously the penal system is not doing a good job in controlling sexual intercourse in the penal system, it does not make sense to keep prisons same sex and cause deviant behavior and increase the spread of AIDS not just in prison but out of prison also.  Something needs to be done if prisoners are creating alternative lifestyles that will make it even more difficult to integrate into society we as citizens have an obligation to intercede.

I will be writing my congressman about this issue and idea.  I think it is a sound one that may reduce the numbers of prisoners returning to prison.

The Big House Goes Coed
Stephen Harrigan
Texas Monthly 03/01/74

Quote

” It’s a sort of penal mock-up of society, designed to reintroduce people who have been trying to survive in penitentiaries into a bigger world where the definition of survival is more elusive, a world that more often than not throws them and their prison-learned coping schemes off, like a body rejecting a transplanted organ. Nearly half the residents at FCI are in prison on drug-related charges. All are at least two years “short,” meaning they have two years or less remaining on their sentences. When they have six months or less to go they’re eligible for furloughs, community programs, family programs and other chaperoned sorties into the outside world.”

Quote

“But violence (judging from both official and resident sources) is sufficiently rare as to be only an occasional individual problem. Homosexual attacks, common in penitentiaries, are rarer still, and according to quite a few of the residents homosexuality itself is almost insignificant.”

The Murder of American Idol Jennifer Hudson’s Mother and Brother in Chicago Neighborhood Sheds Spotlight On Barack Obama’s Fatal Flaws of Ineffectiveness and Egoism

In barack obama, democrats, Education, educational policies, politicians, politics, presidential race on October 25, 2008 at 10:28 am

Obama’s presidential candidacy at a time when the district he represents has a murder rate that surpasses LA and New York, and some high schools have a drop out rate of close to 57%.;  indicate that since Barack Obama has not made a move or been able to solve the ‘basic” problems of his state, he’s not equipped to solve the most challenging macro problems as President.  It indicates that the economic problems that the United States is experiencing will not be solved by Barack Obama.  It indicates that if Obama wins, that he will not be able to or willing to make significant change in the lives of American citizens.

It indicates that Obama is a professional politician whose aims are not to build up a series of policy wins that lead him to believe that he can solve the bigger problems of the nation;  but for Obama the qualifications for being president is that he won his Senatorial race.  It is my opinion that the logical path to follow when running for higher office is to tally up a series of policy wins and state what you’ve done and how that makes you qualified.  For example, Obama should be able to say the following:   “I reduced the dropout rate in Inner city Chicago, the murder rate is down and I am effective”.   He can not say any of this.  He has not solved a hard problem, his answer is to run for higher office.  I suppose his next not move will be to run for Al Gore’s spot.  Oops, he can’t run for Al Gores spot.  Al Gore did not run for his new office he actually observed a problem and brought world wide attention to it without having to run for anything.  As a regular citizen Al Gore created momentous change for a big big problem.  As a State representative and a Senator, Obama has done nothing to significantly change the lives of inner city Americans, or as a Senator suburban and rural Americans either.  He has done nothing.

The obvious question is, Why are you running for President and running on a platform of change if you can’t even make change in your own state.  It’s just ludicrous, and now that we see Obama has hooked up with Colin Powell it is probably highly questionable whether the lives of inner city residents will ever get better.  An obvious observation is that Barack Obama has been a Senator for three years and running for President for two, with the murder of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother, a national spotlight has been shone on the state of Illinois which shows that instead of being a Senator and trying to solve problems related to his state he decided to take the egotistical and irresponsible move of running for the U.S. Presidency in a time when his city and state needed him the most. Whether he wins or loses it indicates to me that he does not have the judgment to lead and anything that comes out of his mouth are not the “just words” saying as he used when quoting from Lincoln and others but:

Just Words:  as in words uttered without meaning or any intention of carry through, or saying what you want people to hear in order to get them to do something for you.

To me after witnessing such a glaring spotlight on Obama’s Illinois through the murder of Jennifer Hudson’s relatives, not Lincoln’s Illinois, I am convinced that Obama is one of the biggest con-men or best politicians  in history.

You Know What Barack Obama said about Small Town Folk I wonder What He and Colin Powell Talked About

In barack obama, democrats, politicians, politics, presidential race, Race on October 23, 2008 at 6:18 am

As Barack Obama gussies himself up for small town America almost everyday, telling them how he’s the new Messiah to their problems and how much he loves them.  He hopes that they will forget that he said the following about small town America to a sophisticated, rich, liberal, well heeled crowd:

“it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”

As we all know Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama this past Sunday.  Having been around conservative blacks and foreign blacks, I wonder what the conversation centered around.  As a native African American who’s ancesters actually particpated in the Civil Rights Movement, who has relatives who still live on the 40 acres and a mule land.  I would like to know what the butt kissing have my son appointed to head of the FCC under the Clinton Administration West Indian Colin Powell and Kenyan American Barack Obama discussed behind closed doors.  Please excuse me for my language but I will take my implied right as an African American to use the following word,  but I bet the conversation was about

American Niggers

Colin Powell reveals much about what the converation was about when he says the following,

” Should the mixed-race Obama win on November 4, “all Americans should be proud, not just African-Americans,” he added”

Some people may take this to mean that oh Powell is just talking about Obama’s American white mother and his Ghanian father, but for me this small statement indicates that there was a discussion, or a thought that neither Colin Powell nor Barack Obama are  descendants of American slaves who had the worst slave expereince of all slaves in  the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.  The discussion or thought may have been on Colin Powells Side I’m West Indian and I am nothing like those African Americans, and on Barack Obama’s side I don’t have any of that nigger or slave blood in me whatsoever my father was Kenyan, I’m pure African, there are no ties to those African Americans and I’m going to show them too.  We are going to bring about great change in their lazy chicken eating inferier lives.  I don’t know what’s wrong with African American blacks.  Huh Colin Powell says I’m West Indian and I beat those African Americans to Secretary of State.  I just don’t think they have the strength of will or the intelligence to even make it up there first.   The conversation ends with all of the various stereotypes of black people they aren’t hard working, they are stupid, etc, etc, etc,  

Colin Powell Endorses Barack Obama

Let’s see how many black people get nominated for black projects if Obama wins.  I predict the most oppressive “regime” ever will be under Barack Hussesin Obama for the powerless, black, Hispanic, Female, and the disenfranchised black and white.  We can just begin by the liberal media’s reaction to the RNC purchasing Sarah Palin clothes.  We used to be the most powerful country in the world and the leader of democracy which the international community looked at as an example.  The Republicans recognized their historical role and made sure their candidate was well dressed in the best clothing the United States had to offer not the mediocre or the worst but the best because the United States is suppossed to be the best no matter what it costs and the liberal media outlet cried out that this was wrong.  The practice of making sure a person is in their ceremonial best was frowned upon and scorned by the press, indicating to me any movement towards pulling people really out of their situations will be frowned upon.  Sure the poor will get food stamps, but programs aimed at giving the poor an equal shot as a banker, making poor women web designers, or sales professionals will just not be the way the democrats will want to go because they thrive on superiority, their mojo comes from the fact that they are better then this guy and that guy.   Obama used to talk about it all the time.  Michelle and I he would say are both Ivys, he said, and wouldn’t it be great if everyone could be one.  Unfortunately,  Michelle needs to go and take some how to pronounce the English language like I’m not from the South Side of Chicago classes. I have known women who were from the Ghettos of  the South Side of Chicago who’s parents still live there in tenements and they have learned to lose their south side accent relatively quickly like immediately, if seven years of Ivy league education can’t help one in the couple of the Obama’s lose their accent, maybe the Ivy’s are not cracked up to be what they are supposed to be.  I sure know Condi did not attend the Ivys, she did however study under the father of a former Secretary of State Madeline Albright and she makes me proud as an African American.  

 

The Problem is not the Message; It is the Messenger

In politicians, politics on September 29, 2008 at 3:41 pm

I listened to congress today and many in congress seem to think that the American People do not know what’s going on.  Congress thinks that Americans are not listening to the fact that Small Businesses may not make payroll because their money market accounts are not FDIC insured and their banks may go out of business (take your money out know, it it’s in a non FDIC account, so this does not happen).  They do not know that we understand that parents may not be able to get student loans for their childrens’ educations’ (educational institutions should voluntarily defer payments until after the election is over, or the government should extend some of that obviously available 700 billion dollars to Federal Student Aid, I have yet to see a justifiable reason for giving Bush and Paulson a blank check with a maximum of 700 billion dollars).  In addition we understand that Banks are hesitant to lend to other banks because they are afraid they don’t have the money to pay them back.  Well if the banks don’t have any money they should not be asking for it and should not be trying to sell other banks a fake bill of goods.  A couple knows how much they can pay for a house, a bank knows how much money they can afford to borrow.  Banks should not borrow more then they can afford to pay. In this brief summation I have of the bailout situation and the reasons for giving Bush 700 billion dollars I hope I have shown some understanding of “What’s Going On”.

With that said,  I have to say that inherently I do not have a problem with bailing out Wall Street.  I think after 911 Wall Street needs a lot of breaks but I have a great big objection to giving George Bush and Paulson 700 billion dollars.  If you want to know the depth of my feelings, if you’ve read 1984 and remember the five minute hate scene where the enemy comes on TV and everyone screams at the TV in pure hate and disgust, then you understand how since Bush has asked for the 700 billion dollars how I feel about him.  This last blackmail, this last debasement has just made me as an American feel so debased and taken advantage of.  It’s creating flashbacks, first flash back – hanging chads, a statement my “brother” is Governor of Florida he’s not going to let me lose.  I remember a browser I had “opera” that would automatically reload every several seconds that I looked at the whole night wondering what was going to happen as the numbers were constantly updated, then hanging chads, recounts, a helicopter following a Uhaul full of votes, and finally a Supreme Court Decision, the second flashback 911, i don’t know if Bush is behind 911 but the same black mail that’s happening now to get us to pass the 700 billion dollar bill is the same blackmail that went on to nullify the constitution and get the patriot bill passed, the unifying cry for the passing of the patriot act was never another 911,  the third flashback; Iraq, the UN told George Bush over and over that their were no weapons of mass destruction.  Instead I had to see a bustling Iraqi economy with cars, fruit stands, and people strolling down the streets, reduced to a pile of rubble with little orphan children, this does not even begin to take into consideration the dead American troops. Even with the Iraq war years later after it started we learned that the Bush administration had falsified documents and lied so that we could go into Iraq.  The fourth flashback is a failure to pass a bill that would have given children medical care.  This was horrifying to me that the president of the United States did not pass a bill to help children.  This is why when bush says that he’s concerned about people losing their jobs, making payroll, and the American people I know that he’s lying like hell.  He does not care for the American people he never has.  If he cared for the American people if we are really in crisis he would find a way where he nor his representatives would never touch the money he’s asking for.

Finally I say the problem is not the message.  Months ago while in the grocery store many people using their debit cards were not able to pay for our groceries because because for no reason our cards were declined.    I was at the self checkout and we were saying our cards have been declined.  There was a problem then and their probably is a problem now but please do not give Bush a blank check of 700 billion dollars, he’s only going to steal it.  Please Congress find a way to administrate everything from the government until Bush gets the Hell OUT.  It’s the messenger not the message.
