President Barack Obama and the Pretenders

Give me a minute, I’m trying to figure out how can I put it to light weights without them taking it personal what I’m about to say, or hurting their little fragile feelings. With that said, I already know I’m gonna step on some toes; but man up and woman up, and take this dose of mental medicine, just might learn something.

I’m a start with the Latino community, you guys need to stop going on nation wide TV complaining about Obama hasn’t upheld his campaign promise to bring undocumented people out of the shadows.

I watch supposedly representatives of the Latino community on TV allowing White people to talk to them like they got a tail between their legs. I challenge any Latino spokesperson the next time a White person question their legitimacy to be in this country, to challenge their legitimacy to be here.

I wasn’t around back in the day, but I’m willing to bet any and everything that the true Americans asked the indentured servants (White people) why are you here, and asked them to leave because they’re here illegally? It amazes me how people who were banished from England, came to America uninvited, and got the audacity to question another people legitimacy to be in this country.

President Obama got ‘Women’s Rights’ groups complaining about he hasn’t done enough in behalf of their cause.

The President got the ‘Gay Community’ complaining about how he hasn’t kept his campaign promise to them.

The ‘Congressional Black Caucus’ got their panties in-a-bunch complaining about how the President haven’t done enough for the Black community.

We got people like myself pissed-off at the President for continuously trying to negotiate with people who have vowed to do any and everything to make sure his Presidency fail. This is equivalent to a run away slave trying to negotiate with a slave owner after being captured.

Here’s what I’m perplexed about, the President made no campaign promises to the ‘Native American’ community; and they’re the only people not complaining.

After all of the negativity bouncing off the President’s brain, we have the ‘Tea Baggers’ and the outright racists hating the President just because he’s a NIGGER who doesn’t know his place.

Comparing Common Sense to Disrespect

To any and everybody I was wrong, for some stupid reason I had this phantom belief that Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith were the only true people at Fox News who tried to uphold the lie that Fox News was ‘Fair and Balanced’.

The Sunday morning talk show Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace proved to me that not only is Fox News not ‘Fair and Balanced’ they’re rude and crude. I disagree with 99.99% of everything Congresswoman Michele Bachmann believe in, but I disagree 100% of anybody disrespecting someone just to upgrade their ratings.

When Chris Wallace asked Congresswoman Michele Bachmann are you’re a flake, it let the world know exactly where Fox News is coming from, and I don’t like the woman; but I dislike people disrespecting people even more. And then trying to clean it up a week later with a statement, “I messed up” was really ‘FLAKY’.

For those of you who aren’t paying attention, this is the second week in a row Mr. Wallace has ‘Messed Up’; he messed up big time trying to match wits with Jon Stewart. When Jon Stewart put it to Mr. Wallace rough and raw and told the world that Fox News viewers are the most misinformed people who ever watched any news show; the only people who was in shock and awe was the misinformed Fox News viewers. Everybody else said, “tell the truth and shame the devil.”

Those of you who are not convinced at this point, the only thing you have to do is wake-up early one morning and tune in to cspan’s Washington Journal call-in show, any complete fool can differentiate the Fox News viewers from the rest of the non-brainwashed people.

Anybody who believe word for word what Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity say day after day got to be a misguided fool.

Anthony Weiner and the Democrat Party Leadership

What Anthony Weiner did was childish and foolish; any Representative should know his/her game should have been tighter than that. Regardless of how any of us felt about Weiner’s actions, the people Anthony Weiner represents should have decided his political fate. I’m a firm believer that the same people who voted him into office should have the opportunity to vote him out of office.

I’ve been a stanch Democrat my entire adult life, but I’ve never felt so disillusioned towards my party as I am today. There have been issues that definitely disappointed me in the past, such as our leadership caving on the ‘Single Payer’ provision in the Health Care Bill.

I was frustrated when President Obama signed a bill cutting taxes for the rich, even though taxes are at its lowest since the 1970’s.

When Republican Governors initiated their Union busting tactics in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan, thousands flooded the streets in protest. It took weeks for any Democrat in a leadership position to speak out against those Governors tactics.

If we go by the way the debates are going in the House and Senate, it wouldn’t be far fetched to believe Democrats will cave on deregulating the Financial Institutions, which led to the worst economic climate since the 1930’s.

The straw that broke the camel back for me that led to my decision not to involve myself in politics this political season was the way my Democrat Leaders treated Anthony Weiner. As I said earlier, Anthony Weiner’s actions were childish and foolish, but not impeachable in my opinion. David Vitter broke the law by soliciting prostitutes; there wasn’t an outcry for impeachment and he continues to serve as a Senator today. By throwing Anthony Weiner under the bus, Democrats have banished a man who spoke as passionate about the causes Democrats believe in as Teddy Kennedy.

When I hear what I consider just outright brainless rhetoric coming from people saying it was the pictures that did Anthony Weiner in, it makes my blood boil. What these complete idiots are really saying is, if we break the law or do something stupid without pictures, we’re ok.

Until we as Democrats rid our Party of the ‘Blue Dog Democrats’ Republicans will always bully us into accepting policy that all real Democrats are against.

If a fundraiser contacts me in behalf of Democrats this political cycle, they’re wasting their time; the Democrat Leadership has demotivated me. And if Michele Bachmann wins the presidency, I’m leaving the country.

Republican Presidential Debate

For some odd reason every pundit is lining up to praise the Republican presidential candidates on how they looked, and how civil they were to each other. Not one pundit will say the obvious, there was no there, there, nothing new on issues Americans really care about.

We heard nothing about how to create jobs but the same old tired story line Republicans have robotically stuck to since Ronald Reagan, cut taxes for the rich. George W. Bush took over the presidency in 2001, and immediately gave tax cuts to the rich. Mr. Bush repeated his ridiculous welfare giveaway to the rich in 2003 with dismal results for job creation on both occasions. It amazes me how Republicans continue to push the exact same lie year after year, and no one in the media will check them on it.

I suggest every politician and every member of the media check before going public with their lies.

Something is Wrong in America

Today (06/06/2011) 5 Americans were killed in Iraq, marking one of the deadliest days for our troops in 2 years.

The nation’s unemployment rate is 9.1%, while the unemployment rate for Blacks sits at 19%. Then we have to face the fact that Black-on-Black crime isn’t going to diminish anytime soon.

Our political leaders are debating whether or not to cut funds for Head Start programs, which are vital to our underprivileged youths.

The politicians want to cut funds for the Meals-on-Wheels program, which are vital to our senior citizens.

Our elected officials want to cut funds for Medicare, which are vital to seniors and disabled Americans.

The people we voted into political office want to cut funds for Planned Parenthood, which is the number one program to deter abortion.

I could go on and on about the wrongs our elected officials have perpetrated on their constituents, but the crime of the century is what the media is doing.

Out of all the facts mentioned above, every media outlet number one story is about Congressman Anthony Weiner’s photos on twitter!

It’s a reason why our children lag far behind most industrialized nations when it comes to education. The people who have a platform to reach the masses are dedicated to feeding us sensationalism.

Conservatives are busy demonizing Liberals, and Liberals are busy demonizing Conservatives; for some reason it’s always a morale struggle when it comes to the left and right wing way of thinking.

What complete fool can’t understand that it’s to our advantage to come together to figure out a way to leave a life for our children better than the life we lived?

Demonizing each other, dam sure aint gonna get the job done; and believe me, there is a job at hand. The question is, who’s ready to go to work?

Graduation Time is Upon Us

Somewhere today on earth our children are preparing themselves to face this cold, cold world we call society. Those of us who think we’ve done our due diligence to make sure the young people we care about got the message that put wrinkles in our forehead to give them the support that others gave us; don’t relax, we still got work to do.

I want to put it to you so the dumbest person in the class can get it. The reason I’m gonna say what I’m about to say, is because I didn’t read this in a book; I lived it, I’m a breathing witness.

Our young people have done everything we’ve asked them to do. OK, OK, I got it, some of you are quizzing your brain and saying, “Yeah JD, but what about the things you did to go against the things your Mom and Dad put their due diligence in to make sure you took the correct path in life when you came to the fork in the road?” I gotcha, your point is well taken. The only thing I say about that is this, everybody got a RESUME; these days they call it issues. I feel ya, but I got to get back to my point.

The graduates are leaving school with a 4, 6, 8, and more years’ degree in hand looking for society to award them for their hard academic achievements. We as a people of which society is made of, have nothing but gloom and doom to hit them in the face with rhetoric about the way the economy is going today. I know for a fact I’m about to piss some people off right now, but the truth will unshackle your brain.

I watch CSPAN on a daily basis paying close attention to what our Congress and Senate are doing in our behalf. I’ve come up with one conclusion and one conclusion only, the majority of these people are looking out for their personal future, Republicans and Democrats. I already know some of you are asking, “JD where are your facts to back-up the rhetoric you’re spewing?”

Ok I feel ya, here are some facts, I really want to get back to the dilemma of the education of our children. But I know there are people out there with the ‘Joe the Plumber’ attitude. These people view life, even if it’s helping them, they’re still against it because in their brain there is no way a Black guy know what’s right for them. Am I playing the race card? Hell yeah! I’m playing the race card because the race card is played each and every moment of our lives; whether or not we as a people want to acknowledge that simple fact, it’s really up to the individual to keep their eyes wide shut.

Our problem as a nation is that we have both Democrats and Republicans looking out for their own personal interest. We have so called conservative Democrats (Blue Dogs), but no liberal Republicans. Where the hell are the Red Dog Republicans? The Blue Dog Democrats vote with Republicans 90% of the time, why don’t they just switch parties? I know why the cowardly Blue Dogs won’t switch parties. This is no secret; these cowards are in districts that will do any and everything to kowtow to their Billionaire donors. These cowards care less than a dam about their poor and working class constituents. The politicians we vote for prove to us that they’re willing to give tax cuts to the rich while making sure people like ‘Joe the Plumber’ finance the monies going in the rich people coffers.

The bottom line is this, we can come up with a solution to the problem, or we can come up with a conclusion to the problem. What’s your flavor? The solution is all of us, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, Turquoise or Green need to put our head together and network with each other for some kind of common ground all of us can be comfortable with. The conclusion is everybody get strapped and war with each other, and the winner of the shoot-out take all. Once again, what’s your flavor?

If we as a people can’t figure out a way for our children to have a better life than the life we lived, make no mistake about it, we have failed as so called PARENTS and role models.
