They're trying to wash us away

OK I will bring it up.

I wonder how many of those people in the New York and New Jersey area on TV talkin bout "somebody come hep us" wanted the government out of their lives three weeks ago. Hell, I wonder how many are still going to vote for limited government now.

You know if it were up to me, I would line them all up in front of those government blankets and bottled water and the generators and the emergency fuel trucks and take a poll. Show of hands, how many of you sombitches think the government is the problem?

But I guess that's why I ain't the President of nothin.

Hey Chic fil-a STFU and make me a sammidge

Nobody cares what you think about anything.  We were not coming into your establishment because of all the deep thoughts you were thinking. You are running a business not a ministry.  You are free to believe anything you choose to believe but that doesn't mean the rest of us want to hear about it.

Yeah maybe homosexuality doesn't exactly mesh with the natural order of things.  Got it, check.  But some people might consider eating a chicken breast without the wing as unnatural, so we all got our issues.  But now yall got things so jacked up that we can't even have lunch without it being some kind of political statement.  I just want to grab a sandwich and get back to work.  Leave the politics to the politicians

Get back in the kitchen you neanderthals, heat up the grease and cue the heifers so maybe everybody can get back to mocking the chickens.

Speaking of heifers, let's turn our attention to Michael Jackson's brood.

Some of you may not have ever had to deal with a 14 year old in the house.  But speaking from personal experience it ain't for the faint of heart under the best of circumstances.  Stir in a lifetime of dysfunction, with intense media scrutiny and a heavy dose of court ordered anything ladled over a premature death with a billion dollar fortune in play and you got yourself one helluva jackpot.  Katherine is an old lady, and I can tell you she don't need this.

The Jacksons, especially Michael, have grown up to be, let's just say, something of a disappointment.  But back in the day the Jacksons made it possible to dream your way out of the hood.  If they could make it out of the hood and still wear those big afros then the rest of us could make it too.  And it is for this reason I am rooting for this family to "succeed".  I still have a soft spot for those young urchins who sprang into our consciousness in 1969. 

Jermaine, who has always seemed to be one of the more sane members of the family and a voice of reason through the years has requested space for the family to heal and deal with their issues.

I say we give it to them.

And then she named me, kung fu
Don't have to explain it, no, kung fu
Don't know how you'll take it, kung fu
I'm just trying to make it, kung fu

I've got some babies and some sisters
My brother worked for Uncle Sam

Well ain't that the ritz calling the saltine a ...

Is it now acceptable to proclaim the pot calling the kettle black in polite company?

I keep hearing this saying roll off the tongues of supposedly enlightened persons who apparently haven't a clue it might carry offense for others.

Is there something wrong with the kettle being black?  I have always wondered what the hell that is about?

Is this colloquialism some deep intellectual insight based on ancient cultural wisdom, perhaps Latin? Or is this exactly what it sounds like?

Well I decided to conduct some deep, exhaustive and comprehensive research on this phrase, and here is what wikipedia has to say about it:

"Oho!' said the pot to the kettle; "You are dirty and ugly and black! Sure no one would think you were metal, Except when you're given a crack."

"Not so! not so! kettle said to the pot; "'Tis your own dirty image you see; For I am so clean -without blemish or blot- That your blackness is mirrored in me"


So I propose that we change this colloquialism just a bit to see if it gives offense to the seemingly oblivious.

Senor Blues

If you want to watch peoples heads explode just tell them that jazz is a composer's art.

Horace Silver is one, but certainly not the only, master composer who claims the jazz tradition as his home.

Senor blues is one, but certainly not Silver's only, masterwork.

Taj Mahal is a traditional blues and folk artist who brought his A game to the jazz tradition.

I thought we had these sombitches on the run.

If politicians want to do something to make themselves popular they can drive a stake through the heart of these assholes.

Unless they just want to leave the loopholes in the law so they can annoy us with pre-recorded messages at election time about how hard they are fighting on our behalf.

Its the way nature planned it

Ready or not, it seems we will now have a national discussion about gender identity.

I will admit that I am still a bit confused by the whole thing.  I mean just the whole plumbing thing of what goes where is enough to overwhelm the uninitiated.  And I guess just having gay men marry lesbian women is an over simplification of the problem.  At least the plumbing fixtures would fit, huh, huh, huh!  I suppose life is never that simple.

But it seems to me that as long those who identify with nontraditional gender roles are simply trying to carve out a place in the universe to live life the best way they know how, then the least the rest of us can do is scooch over a bit and give them a little room to breathe free.

But that doesn't mean the hipper than hip in crowd gets to look at us funny just because we don't get it.  You are strange to us and that is not our fault. Just because  the high powered media types have organized a slick campaign to convince the rest of us hicks that this is the coolest thing since ice dispensers on refrigerators doors doesn't mean we have to like it.  And we won't.  But we can and should acknowledge the humanity of even those who are different.

So if you think you can manage to mow your grass, pay your taxes and bring your herbie curbie in off the street before the sun rises again then welcome to the neighborhood.  If you don't judge me I won't judge you.  But let's be clear here, I don't like this or understand it.  That doesn't make me a bad person any more than not liking golf, chitlins or Game of Thrones.  Its just the way God made me!

Personally, I think we all would have been better off with civil unions.  Think about it.  This would have given a wider scope of interested persons access to this so called equality.  For example, what if a single parent has a good job with benefits for herself and her children.  But she wanted her mother, who has no health insurance, to stay home and take care of the kids.  Why couldn't civil unions allow a mother and a daughter to band together for mutual economic benefit.  The mother gets subsidized health care, the single parent gets a homemaker to take care of her kids while she earns a living.  What about two little old spinster ladies trying to take care of each other into old age making a legal commitment to each other.

Where is it written that this issue has to be about gay and lesbian people.  This could have been about a lot more than who your dance partner is when its time to do the hokey pokey.  But that doesn't seem to be where we are headed now.

Everybody on all sides of this issue better strap in because this seems to be headed for political bloodsport, and that's what its all about.

I think I'm in love

I have always wondered why so called journalist allow the political types to go on air and Texas 2 step their way around the question that everybody wants answered.

Not today. Not Tamron Hall.

Dayum girl, I am scared of you. I do not want to roll up on you in a dark alley.

For those of you who don't speak ghetto allow me to translate:

Bitch you in my house so don't play me.

I ain't done nothin to you yet but you will feel it when I fuck with you.

You are seriously pissing me off. 

So shut the hell up and get off my air.

Now the point is not that she smacked her "guest" around on air.  The point is that she demanded accountability from those who would come on her air and use it to spew uselessness.

I guess the end result of everyone holding their guests accountable would be fewer politicians agreeing to go on these programs.  But you know that might not be the worst thing that ever happened.  Maybe they could use that airtime to run better cartoons or something.

And that is Soul for real.

Chicken shit for the soul

Dateline America circa 21st century: GOP candidates prefer white women

I think its time the media challenged the GOP presidential contenders for their racial bias. I mean come on, let's face it, each and everyone of them has gotten a pass for their predilection for white women.

Not a single one of the four, Romney, Santorum, Gingrich or Paul has ever shown any interest whatsoever in women of colour. (There ain't nothin any of you fellers want to tell us is there?)

Why is no one asking these questions?

It wouldn't have anything to do with a chicken shit double standard would it?

I guarangodamntee you if the Democratic presidential contender showed this much interest in white women it would be a national obsession.

So why doesn't the chicken shit flow both ways? Why is Robert De Niro's joke about America not being ready for a white woman in the White House inappropriate?

When I first heard the joke I literally did a spit take. Why? Because it was just funny as hell that's why. But instead of engaging America about its racial issues from the safety of comedic discourse by countering feigned indignation with an even funnier joke we are getting apologies.

Its going to be a very long campaign season.

You know its hard, who ever said it would be easy?

Treyvon Martin

I first became aware of the Treyvon Martin incident shortly after it occurred. I found out about it not because Black folks rose up in protest, but because general interest media controlled by white folks, who apparently were just as outraged by it as the black community, thought it was news worthy.

Indeed it was newsworthy, but it took another month for the controversy to come to a full rolling boil. But just because it took mainstream broadcast media a few weeks to pick up the story doesn't make it race riot worthy. And they seem to be all over it now.

I remember being first saddened and then angered by the issue. Saddened for those who lost a child, angered by those who would seek to protect his killer. I remember thinking this had all the makings of a federal civil rights violation case written all over it and ultimately that looks like what it will turn out to be.

But before we go all tribal and turn this into a racist America versus Black America issue we should remember two things:

1. There are many white people who were and are just as outraged as black folks about this killing and therefore we shouldn't create separation where there is none.

2. After the killer has had his day in court there are still folks who need to be held to account for trying to subvert justice by protecting the killer. If these folks are not made to explain their actions then nothing has changed.

The good news is we have already found the answer to racism and posted it here 2 years ago. The question now is where is the constituency for murdered kids who don't fit into any minority group.

Can you hear me now?
