This blog will be about whatever suits my fancy. Chances are, it will concentrate on media misrepresentations of the American "Black community", Black politics, politics in general, and whatever else I want to mentally masturbate about.
Go to the video of Dr. Carson's comments at the annual prayer
breakfast. Listen to the entire speech he gave. Did you catch his
comment saying that the people in Washington, D.C. need to sit down,
together, to hash out the problems? Do you realize there are a current
crop of Republicans who think that's a non-starter? Do you realize
that if any Republican in office in D.C. said that, Rush Limbaugh and
Sean Hannity, would be on them like R. Kelly on an under aged teenaged
I've heard Dr. Carson on the radio speaking about Obamacare and
medical issues. The man is "non aligned" in Maryland, which means
independent. Pray for the man because when he calls out Republicans,
it's going to get nasty.
I write this, not to be snarky towards Dr. Carson, but to remind
people that the media can be your friend, but when they turn on you,
it will get VERY nasty.
Marco Rubio is going to give the response to the president's state of
the union speech in English AND in Spanish!
The United States is a country where the primary language is English
and Marco Rubio is going to give the response in English and Spanish.
I'm sitting here, somewhat dumb founded. Blacks are criticized because
some of us use the term African-American. Blacks are said that if
"they want to be a part of the country, they should drop the use of
And Marco Rubio is giving the state of the union response in Spanish?
HE needs to want to be a part of America!
Chris Dorner killed a policeman and two other people. When a person kills a police officer, I understand the police going all out to catch the person they believe is responsible for the killing. However, as I type this, the police, in two separate incidents, have shot at, and wounded, innocent people. People who look nothing like Chris Dorner.
Some Torrance residents remain on edge days after police officers participating in the massive manhunt for ex-LAPD Officer Christopher Jordan Dorner mistakenly shot up two pickups being driven by people not matching the description of the murder suspect.
I am really at awe and disgusted at the conservative reaction to the killing and injuring of innocent people by Chris Dorner. Many on the right are so interested in playing gotcha and catching hypocrisy, that they point out physcotic Chris Dorner wrote in his "manifesto", praises of people deemed to be left leaning and then "ask" why the media isn't saying the left is responsible for Dorner's rampage.
So, is it a wonder those same people on the right don't mention Dorner also praised Chick-Fil-A and Tim Tebo?
Since the right wants to claim morality and religion, how about prayers for the families of the victims and praying for the capture of Dorner without no further harm coming to anyone?
Owned. Dr. Carson. OWNED Pres. Obama. Just. OWNED him in his statements at the Prayer Breakfast.
So, AGAIN, I ask, why didn't Republicans and conservatives, ESPECIALLY BLACK REPUBLICANS AND BLACK CONSERVATIVES highlight Dr. Carson's objections to Obamacare, AS WELL AS HIS ALTERNATIVES, when Dr. Carson has been spelling them out for some time, to include, talk radio in Maryland and "60 Minutes"?
During the half-time, I went to the store and when I got back, Beyonce's performance was going on. I sat down in my seat and *BAM*! There it was! Beyonce in her outfit, gyrating, and the camera was "all
up in her crotch" getting a "money shot."
Whoa. Outfit aside, she put on one heck of a performance. There are no questions that woman can give an entertaining performance.
However, while I was enjoying the performance, I have to say I was conflicted because as the father of a young son, I'm concerned with the over/hyper-sexualization of children. Yes, "even with a son", I'm
concerned about the sexualization of children. I have an older daughter, who is an adult, and I still wonder about her as well.
I'm concerned about perverts being more attracted to children because of the clothes the children wear. And by perverts, I don't just mean sexual predators of young children I also mean adults who target under aged teenagers for sexual conquest. I'm concerned about girls/young women being sexualized to the point that they only see their self worth as a sex toy for boys/young men. I'm concerned about boys/young men being sexualized to the point that they only see their self worth as consisting of how many girls/women they can have sex with. This is what troubles me so much about the current "fad" of rappers rapping about strippers and "being in love with a stripper" and workouts featuring the stripper pole. I also think, from talking with men who had pornography addictions as well as reading about it, that the hyper sexualization of women, especially with pornography, negatively affects the intimate and sexual -- they aren't the same -- interaction of men and women.
Beyonce brought it! She did her thing. But, I'm conflicted.
