Three Days Away

There are thousands, perhaps millions of veterans at the point of 12.5% of unemployed and the numbers reach higher when it comes to veterans who will be cut from ‘Food Stamps’ and unemployment benefits.

Congressional people we voted for in the House and the Senate can campaign on how much they did to make sure our veterans wouldn't suffer while they bickered with insignificant things that had absolutely nothing to do with our veteran Men and Women were left out of how they suppose to proceed with their everyday lives.

It’s a reason why Democrats and Republicans don’t care about veterans; the majority of the people we voted for don’t have any family members with any skin in the game. If the majority of these people had family members dodging bullets, believe me, these cowards would not allow our sons and daughters to stand in harms way while they wrap themselves in the flag and enjoy Xmas with their loved ones.

Two Soldiers Killed Today in Afghanistan

Two soldiers from the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed today (December 23, 2013) in Afghanistan. The death of these soldiers were barely mentioned in US news, there’s a reason why; the media, and the majority of Americans really don’t care. Less than one percent of Americans are sharing the tragedies soldiers deal with everyday in Afghanistan.

We as Americans are too focused on what some ‘Duck Dynasty’ ignorant hillbilly said to pay attention to Americans dying in Afghanistan ten years after George Bush declared “Mission Accomplished.”

Duck Dynasty

I know I’ll get it from both sides on this one. Just wrap this around your brain, and then ask yourself does it make sense. A&E hired Mr. Phil Robertson because he’s a ‘Redneck’; the show became a number one cable show because he’s a redneck. The show Duck Dynasty is based on the lives of hillbilly rednecks, and it’s a successful show. This shows how our society has dumbed down; and we wonder why our education system ranks amongst the lowest when it comes to industrialized countries.

Here’s the part where I’m confused, A&E fired Mr. Phil Robertson because he expressed his redneck views in an interview with GQ. Am I the only one confused, or am I viewing this from a half empty glass point of view?

To me, it’s like hiring Mr. Chiwetel Ejiofor to portray the true story of Mr. Solomon Northup in the movie “Twelve Days a Slave”; and firing him because he did a good job of portraying what slavery was like. I don’t know, maybe I’m the one who needs help, I guest the moral of the way our society is setup these days; do a bad job of what you do, and keep your job.

Just Thoughts

Anonymous accomplished something really significant today, because the accomplishment was done incognito; no one knows what the accomplishment was or who anonymous is.

Years ago when I looked in the mirror, I saw two eyes looking at me; I saw a nice looking person who just happened to be a male. Today when I look in the mirror, I see six eyes looking at me; I see an accomplished man, a father, and a grandfather.

It’s a difference between thinking about the people you care about, and thinking about the people you love. When I try to differentiate the two, I often find myself searching how to convey my feelings without hurting either.

Sometimes I catch myself wishing I had monetary riches beyond what I already have; but when reality kick-in, I realize any human gifted with their health and mental faculties intact, I got all the riches I need.

The best feeling in the world is to love someone, and know for a fact that person love you back. Because I want to leave this on a positive note, I’m not going into what the worst feeling in the world is.

Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year!!!

Lie Of The Year

According to, “If you like your health care you can keep it” is the lie of the year. My question is this, does that mean ‘WMD in Iraq’ and “Mission Accomplished” qualifies as lies of the decade, or lies of the century?

Obama Administration Most Transparent In History

Most in the media seems to believe the White House should let them know everything that goes on, from what’s on the food menu to a menu of the missions the Navy Seals have upcoming. I honestly believe American citizens should have the right to know certain things our government is doing that affect our lives. The government shouldn't be gathering data on any American citizens unless, they have probable cause he/she are participating in criminal activities; that’s the law, and doing so is breaking the law.

If the media would have known about our government’s planning to raid and capture, or kill Osama bin Laden, there’s a good bet Osama bin Laden would still be alive. My question is this, what is this obsession with people believing they have the right to know everything the government is doing; no matter what?

When it comes down to it, the vast majority of these people complaining about the government gathering their personal business has nothing more than a facebook account with nothing but garbage on it, and a bank account with a zero dollar balance. A thief would be in the red participating in identity theft with their identification.

Why Democrats Does Not Support President Obama

Most Democrats in my opinion are just outright cowards, Republicans show emotion for their cause; whatever the cause may be. Democrats come with soft spoken voices and the majority of times are shouted down by Republicans.

I watched the House of Representatives hearing on the progress of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with Kathleen Sebelius today (December 11, 2013). If Kathleen Sebelius was my wife, sister, or daughter, a few Republicans who questioned her at the hearing today would have gotten a visit from me; and my visit wouldn't have been nothing nice. The level of disrespect Republicans demonstrated towards Kathleen Sebelius was on the level of just plain evilness.

Here’s my problem with Democrats, Republicans trot people out on Fox News complaining about the horrible experiences they encountered with the ACA; come to find out after fact checking these people stories, all were proven to be liars. Democrats trot people out on MSNBC praising the ACA about how their experiences have been nothing but positive since enrolling in the ACA; and it has been proven by way of fact checking that all of these people were truthful.

My question is this, why aren't Democrats waving this in their faces every time Republicans read letters of horror in regards to the ACA they supposedly received from their constituents? The only thing I can come up with is this, there are many Democrats hoping for the failure of President Obama; while wearing a mask of supportiveness.

Black Americans and the Rest

I’ve gotten to the point that Black people either don’t understand or we just happen to be the dumbest people on earth. The Uncle Toms who have penetrated the true real Black people think they got away with something; they know who I’m talking about. Some how these cowards have convinced the racist part of the Tea Party that they’re one and the same.

The Black Tea party members are nothing more than people of color who are disappointed that they were born with skin color and a heavy dose of brainwashing that just can’t come to grips with Whites in tow, why a Black man is President. I refuse to vent on White people who hate on President Obama just because he just happens to be Black and the President.

If President Obama fail in his endeavors to push Legislation that will benefit people of color; we as people of color should owe it to ourselves to shoulder the blame of the President’s short comings. Before people of color blame me for attempting to give them a guilt trip; I’m just saying, where is your intenseness to make sure the President prevail as opposed to the Tea Party Republicans pledging to make sure the President fail? The majority of Republicans have let it be known that their main goal is to make sure President Obama fail.

Where are Black Americans to prove these haters wrong? I’m not asking people to throw rocks while their opponents are firing back with hollow points. I just want to know where you at? The silence from people of color is deafening. It’s as if our eyes are wide shut.

President Obama has been attacked from every direction known to man. This is what this man is faced with each and everyday:

White people attack with rhetoric like, “I’m convinced President Obama just hate White people (Glenn Beck).”

Black people attack with, “As the first Black President, he seems to ignore the plight of Black Americans”.

Hispanics attack with rhetoric like, “Stop deportation now.” Like it’s a magic wand the President can wave and make everything and anything come to fruition.

The gay community attack with the President not doing enough to bring their issues to the front page of news outlets.

Some, but definitely not all, women groups attack by implying that the President doesn’t do enough to pass legislation to make them equal in the work place.

Jews are complaining about the President being soft for allowing Iran to move forward with their ambition to have Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Do these people remember George Bush claims why we invaded Iraq?

I could go on and on, the bottom line is this; most White people just can’t live with the fact that a Black man is calling shots for the most powerful country on earth. Most White people believe they’re bequeathed to that pedestal.

President Nelson Mandela

The same way the whole world rejoiced when Barack Hussein Obama became President of the United States, all of us should feel that we’re indebted for witnessing a man of Mr. Mandela’s perseverance. Nelson Mandela was the number one essence to prove to every living thing on earth should be about respecting the rights of all, while demanding respect from our enemies.

The same way Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. demanded those who adhered to his words not to fight violence with violence; The late great President Nelson Mandela walked out of prison for serving decades of imprisonment for ‘Breathing While Black’, and showing no malice towards those who took his freedom away for demanding ‘Justice and Freedom’ for all.

President Nelson Mandela, your physical, mental, and spiritual stature will surely be missed by all; GOD Bless!!!

Affordable Care Act Part Deux

Before I delve into this, let me point out up-front that I honestly believe most Americans want those who don’t have health care to be able to acquire it. With that said, the marketing for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was inadequately promoted.

It’s always easier to Monday morning quarterback, all of us are better informed to analyze anything after what it is we’re analyzing have launched. In my opinion the Administration should have promoted the ACA on the premise as follows:

“This bill is for the over forty million Americans without Health Care, our goal is to fix that. By voting for this bill these people will no longer have to go to the emergency room for a common cold. Those of us who are already covered will probably see a slight increase in our premiums, but in the long run health care coverage will be lower for all of us. We will no longer have to pay for an emergency room visit for those who don’t have health care coverage; just for those reasons alone, the ACA is a good bill.” Like I said, hindsight is always easier to scrutinize.

If the ACA fixes in regards to the enrollment website and other problems people encountered during the roll-out that the President promised to be fixed by November 30th are mostly small fixes, Democrats will pay a political price. What the price will be who knows? What I do know, if people vote for Republicans because of the debacle of the ACA and things go back to status quo; we all will continue to pay higher prices for health care, because we are subsidizing those who can’t afford it. However, it’s hard for me to envision clear thinking Americans voting for Republicans knowing they’re getting nothing in return for their vote.

If the ACA fixes in regards to the enrollment website and other problems people encountered during the roll-out that the President promised to be fixed by November 30th are fixes people can vividly see that are vastly improved; the Administration should stay on track and push to allow the ACA law to morph into perfection.

The latter would be a win for all Americans, including the haters.

President Obama Speech on Immigration

I was happy to see the President move on to something else, rather than continue to here lie after lie from Republicans about the Affordable Care Act (ACA). I honestly believe most Americans want immigrants who come here to better their lives to have a pathway to citizenship; especially young immigrants who were brought here by their parents.

While the President was giving a speech on immigration, members from the organization United We Dream started heckling the President. We’re a country of free speech, so I guess heckling is permitted; I’m cool with that. I look at it this way, if Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) can call the President a liar during a speech to Congress while the whole world were watching, and Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona can chastise and wag her finger in the President’s face; then of course undocumented immigrants should feel they have the right to shout and interrupt his speech on immigration. What’s the big deal; he’s just a Black man who happens to be President.

A spokesperson for United We Dream, Ms. Maria Fernanda Cabello was interviewed by Thomas Roberts on MSNBC today (November 26, 2013). During the interview, every time Ms. Cabello spoke about the President it was always Obama; not one time did Ms. Cabello address the President as President Obama.

As an African American who has lived with discrimination, I know first hand how it feels. I don’t remember reading anything about Native Americans asking White people about legal documentation when the Mayflower landed on America’s shores.

My bottom line is this, I resent the disrespect this President receives from every group who feels they have a beef. Last but definitely not least, I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired of every organization who feels as though they have a beef with America equating their plight with slavery; there is no comparison.

Universal Lie

The American public needs to know this, the media, especially CSPAN are misleading the public by breaking down political affiliates as: Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.

Over 90% of so called Independents are actually undercover Republicans. The only reason these people claim the title Independent is because they don’t want people to know they’re supporting the racists Republican Tea Party members.

Another lie, recently Fox News introduced people on two occasions complaining about how they were kicked off of their Health Care plans they liked because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA); once on the Sean Hannity show, the others on Fox News Sunday. After fact checking these people stories, it turns out that all of these people were outright lying about their insurance experience.

When Tea Party Republicans in the House and Senate make speeches about all of the letters they received from constituents complaining about they were kicked off of their Health Care Plan because of the ACA law, it’s a good bet these people are lying as well.

It’s an outright disgrace Democrats always crumble from pressure applied by Republicans. Democrat constituents need to start voting for people who will truly represent the needs of their voters, and stop voting for weak Democrats who always crack under pressure from Tea Party Republicans.

President Obama’s Affordable Care Act Q&A

It took every ounce of my self control to not throw my TV out the window while listening to the President answer questions today (November 14, 2013), in regards to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It makes my blood boil when reporters ask the President, does he feels he owes an apology to those who were kicked off their Health Plan they liked.

Nearly every reporter in that room today was around when George Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in Iraq. Not one of these cowards have the guts to ask George Bush, does he feels he owe the families of military men and women who were killed in Iraq an apology for lying about WMD. These cowards didn't have the guts then, and they don’t have the guts today; even with knowledge of all the facts.

Let me be clear, I honestly believe the majority of Americans see the double standard. My question is this, does the majority of Americans have the courage to speak-out and stand-up to the double standard?

Cracks in a Weak Foundation

Just when I thought Democrats finally had the cohesion to unite as one and stand strong against Republicans relentless goal of doing any and everything to guarantee President Obama fail; the knees of the cowardly Democrats are beginning to wobble.

Even the media which pick-up everything negative the Republicans step-up to a podium and say, usually without any proof, were duped into believing the Democrats were finally sticking together.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), which seemed to be the one thing Democrats were united on; now seems to be the very thing that shows just how cowardly and weak Democrats are.

Democrats’ main cancer of their party are Blue Dog Democrats who are the plague within. These people do more harm to Democrats than any Republican Tea Party member could only dream of doing; and at this point, it’s about time for real Democrats to name names. I’ll just say this; cowardly Democrats conceive the mental benefit to adhere to phony Democrats like Joe Manchin (D-WV) instead of following the lead of a true Democrat like Alan Grayson (D-FL).

Fox News paraded supposedly citizens on nationwide TV purporting to be victims who were dropped from their Health Care policies they liked due to ObamaCare. Sean Hannity had outright liars on his show, and Fox News Sunday had two liars on their show. I honestly believed Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace was the lone truth teller Fox News had; I apologize for my gullibility.

After fact check experts proved Fox News lied, one would think Democrats would make these liars pay for their dastardly deeds; what did cowardly Democrats do, absolutely nothing.

Real progressive Democrats who believe in democracy for all owe it to themselves to come to a profound decision; either the Blue Dog Democrats are afraid of Republicans, or they’re participating in the same activities as Republicans and their Tea Party affiliates.

Mentally Bequeathed

I’m about to touch on something that millions will deny; Black and White. The incident with the Miami, FL NFL football team motivated me to at least delve into this delicate topic.

When we as a people start branding another person as being prejudice, the majority of us do it lackadaisically without the benefit of intellect. I honestly believe most White people say or perform a racist act everyday without mentally knowing they are saying or performing such an act. I also honestly believe most Black people accept that they are inferior to Whites without mentally ingesting the thought.

White people believe they are born with certain rights, and one of those rights is that they think they are superior to Blacks. These people honestly believe that they have a GOD given right that they are second to none. I aint mad atem, aint nothing wrong with thinking positive of yourself; but we owe it to ourselves to keep it in proper context. There are homeless poor White trailer trash people who believe they are superior to President Obama just because they were born White.

Black people in our innate brain believe that we are inferior to Whites. I already know I’m gonna here Black people saying, “Awe hell no JD you got me wrong, aint no way I think like that.” This is when I have to remind my beloved Brothers and Sisters to notice that I used the word innate in my depiction of us. This is a trait that is hereditary in those of us who are descendants of slaves.

Here’s the ticket that separate the light weights from the heavy weights. The heavy weights stay strong and stay on their GOD given journey to let society know just because I was born with an obstacle in my way; I refuse to allow any obstruction to be the reason I didn't reach my GOD given potentials. Light weights accept an obstacle as something we all have to live with.

This is what gives credence to those who believe they are ‘Bequeathed’ to something that they are the only people who have this GOD given right.

Veterans Day

It’s amazing how numerous of Veteran Charities are complaining about how the Obama Administration is not doing enough for veterans. However, not one of these organizations will mention the fact that Republicans have cut jobs of people who worked for the Veterans Administration; which in part slows the flow of veterans receiving their benefits.

All media outlets are demanding President Obama apologize to millions of Americans who lost their Health Plans due to ObamaCare; ok that’s fair.

Since it’s Veteran’s Day, shouldn't the media demand former President Bush to apologize to all of the men, women, and children who lost love ones in Iraq due to a lie in regards to ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’? It’ll never happen; American media have too much respect for George Bush for that. I wonder why?

How Many Times Does This Have To Happen?

How many times a Black person have to be murdered by a so called oops before America realize something is terribly wrong with this shoot first and ask questions later, if it’s a Black person? How did we as a people sink to a level that it’s ok to murder someone if we think someone is threatening to us? Why does it always have to be a Black person on the receiving end of the gun barrel when these so called mistakes take place?

I refuse to sit here and name time after time these unfortunate tragedies have taken place; I believe my time would be better spent sharing my views why these senseless tragedies are happening in the first place.

I believe these tragedies are happening on a recurring basis because we as Black people have allowed ourselves to be lulled into a false sense of gullibility, just because there is a Black President. If it wasn’t for the protection the President receives from the Secret Service, President Obama would be just as vulnerable to these tragedies as young Ms. Renisha McBride and Mr. Travon Martin were.

We as Black people need to stop taking for granted the laws written to protect our rights just because ‘Jim Crow’ laws were over ruled by the ‘Civil Rights Act of 1964’. I honestly believe every Black person is a complete fool if he or she is not heavily armed at all times; even if their weapon is illegally possessed.

NBC’s Interview with President Obama

I watched NBC’s interview of the President about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) roll-out with Chuck Todd today (November 7, 2013); some of the questions by Chuck Todd reached the level of outright stupidity. It really burns me up when reporters on MSNBC ask the President questions like; do you believe you owe the American people an apology for saying they could keep their health care policy if they liked it?

Here’s what pisses me off with NBC, especially MSNBC, Chuck Todd, David Gregory, Joe Scarborough, Andrea Mitchell and others were all there when George Bush made the push on Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) leading to the war in Iraq.

Not once did any of these people ask George Bush, does he believe he owe the American people an apology for misleading them about WMD in Iraq which led to the deaths of over 4,400 military men and women.

I honestly believe the questioning of the President by Chuck Todd in regards to the ACA were valid; I just hate the way these reporters act as if President Obama did something that damaged America in a way the country has never been damaged before.

One complete fool went on national TV and said the ACA was the worst thing in America since slavery; and this was by Dr. Ben Carson, a Black man.

I need somebody to explain to me, how this 

compares to this?

We’re here to let all of the MSNBC reporters know that we the American people were there when none of you were willing to give any scrutiny to George Bush about the claim of WMD in Iraq.

National Football League Bullying

This is a topic I really should ignore, but due to the fact that bullying is at a rampant pace in our children schools today; I felt impelled to offer my two cents.

First of all, if I’m clocking in at three hundred pounds plus; I could care less who the person is who’s trying to bully me; we just gonna have to get into each other’s ass and settle it.

This is why this makes no sense to me, in my book, a man owe it to himself to stand-up for his manhood before anything else. Somewhere Mr. Jonathan Martin forgot about that part. What Mr. Martin needs to understand, sometime in life it’s better to where an ass kicking just to let the bully know this is not the ass you want to kick again.

Once a man allows his manhood to be threatened, an outright punk might try you just to get street creds’. Hopefully Mr. Martin will redeem his self esteem and learn from this little incident.

People Who Fight Against What Is Good For Them

Anybody ever wondered why the majority of people who are having major problems with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are Texas hillbillies, and southern racists? I worked for a major fortune five hundred company for over twenty years; the health care policy changed every year, it didn’t matter if you liked your policy or not, this is nothing new. What’s new is that we have a Black President, and there are racists hillbillies GOD bent on making sure the first Black President is a failure.

My problem is with the cowardly Democrats and people who profess to be on the side of the President. These cowards don’t even have the guts to fact check all of these letters the Tea Party Republicans claim they’re receiving from disgruntled constituents. I honestly believe the majority of these people are making bogus claims about being kicked off a health care policy they liked.

Everybody acknowledge the fact that the ACA law roll-out was a major failure; however, none of the Tea Party Republicans or their hillbilly racists’ constituents will acknowledge the ACA law is a good thing for all Americans. These people want to kill the law without having anything to offer in its place.

The number one problem with the ACA law is that a Black man was the person to make this happen. The Tea Party Republicans and their hillbilly racist constituents just can’t wrap that fact around their ity bity brain.

Where Did All Of These Uncle Tom Niggers Come From

I got just one question, how does these Uncle Tom niggers sleep at night?
 Allen West, just another nigger mad because he was born with 1/5th of Black blood in his vein.

Ms. Alveda King, the niece of the late great Rev. Martin Luther King. An outright disgrace to her Uncle.
Anita MonCrief, just another Fox News Kool-Aid drinker.

David Webb, some will deem him as a criticle thinker; but real people will deem him as an Uncle Tom Nigger that doesn't know any better.
I really don't know who this dumb ass woman is, but I heard this woman speaking at a Tea Party rally just because she doesn't get no attention at home.

Deroy Murdock, I honestly thought this young man possessed the knowledge to think on his own; but he allowed himself to drink the Fox News Kool-Aid

Kevin Jackson, this is just a dumb Uncle Tom nigger talking without the benefit of intellect
Larry Elder, an astute young man; just happens to be an educated fool..
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, this man is beyond repair.

Senator Tim Scott; this is the far most nigger that's the overwhelming Uncle Tom Nigger of all. This stupid nigger sits silently by while Senators like Ted Cruz dehumanize our President. This Nigger is nothing more than the Nigger police who stood by while Rodney King was nearly being beaten to death.

How does these ignorant misinformed Uncle Tom Niggers sleep at night?

President Obama Lied

President Obama lied to the American people about ObamaCare. Millions of people were discontinued from their Health Plan due to ObamaCare. The web-page was a disaster all by itself, some called for officials to be fired. Outrage was rampant by all; but yet nobody died.

President Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction which led to the war in Iraq. Nobody was outraged; nobody called for anyone to be fired. Over 4,400 military men and women died.

Wonder why America’s societal mental demeanor was vastly dissimilar? Give up? Ok I’ll lace your boots. One President is White while living in the White House; one President is Black while living in the White House. Still don’t get it?

The White President is where he should be. The Black President doesn't know his place. That’s it in a nutshell; it’s as old as being accused of reckless eyeballing.

Obama Care Charlatans

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) Congressional hearings got underway today (Thursday, October 24, 2013) to find ways to fix the glitches and make the web-site accessible to all. Wait, that’s not right; let me start over.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) Congressional hearings got underway today (Thursday, October 24, 2013) to find ways for Tea Party Republicans to sabotage the ACA, and disgorge their hatred on President Obama.

Four Republican Congressmen were present for today’s Congressional hearings on the implementation of Obama Care; but first the comments they made in regards of former President Bush’s implementation of Medicare Part D, that was totally unfunded by the Bush administration.

REP. JOE BARTON (R-TX): “This is a huge undertaking and there are going to be glitches. My goal is the same as yours: Get rid of the glitches. The committee will work closely with yourself and Dr. Mark McClellan at CMS to get problems noticed and solved.” [Barton Statement via, 2/15/2006]

REP. TIM MURPHY (R-PA): “Any time something is new, there is going to be some glitches. All of us, when our children were new, well, we knew as parents we didn’t exactly know everything we were doing and we had a foul-up or two, but we persevered and our children turned out well. No matter what one does in life, when it is something new in learning the ropes of it, it is going to take a little adjustment.” [Murphy Floor Speech via Congressional Record, 4/6/2006]

REP. MICHAEL BURGESS (R-TX): “We can’t undo the past, but certainly they can make the argument that we are having this hearing a month late and perhaps we are, but the reality is the prescription drug benefit is 40 years late and seniors who signed up for Medicare those first days back in 1965 when they were 65 years of age are now 106 years of age waiting for that prescription drug benefit, so I hope it doesn’t take us that long to get this right and I don’t believe that it will. And I do believe that fundamentally it is a good plan.” [“Medicare Part D: Implementation of the New Drug Benefit,” 3/1/2006]

REP. PHIL GINGREY (R-GA): “I delivered 5,200 babies, but this may be the best delivery that I have ever been a part of, Mr. Speaker, and that is delivering, as I say, on a promise made by former Congresses and other Presidents over the 45-year history of the Medicare program, which was introduced in 1965 with no prescription drug benefit. And what we have done here is add part D, the ‘D’ for ‘drug’ or, if you want, the ‘delivery’ that we have finally provided to our American seniors.” [Gingrey Floor Speech via Congressional Record, 4/6/06]

Listening to these people today, you would have to think they’re schizophrenic; but wait, that’s not all, it took over six months to iron out the glitches for Medicare Part D.

Democrats Deserve GOP Disparagement

Democrats deserve everything and more of what they’re receiving from Tea Party Republicans (TPR). The very first day Barack Obama became President, Republicans let it be known that they are willing to do any and everything to make the first Black President a failure; Democrats and the President chose to ignore the Republicans’ promise.

Democrats allowed themselves to be brainwashed into accepting the lies Republicans told leading up to the Iraq invasion. The majority of media outlets were brain-dead as well; the more Republicans lied about Iraq, the more Democrats and the media kept drinking the kool-aid.

2009 Democrats won the White House with President Obama, held the majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate; their first order of business was to look forward. A few Democrats wanted to hold Republicans accountable for misleading the country in the lead-up to the Iraq invasion.

Moving on to present day politics, Republicans are proving to Democrats just how gullible they were to forgive and forget. Republicans shut-down the government trying to repeal the Affordable Health Care (AHC) law, and tried to blame the shut-down on Democrats while taking a beating in the polls for their efforts.

Now that the AHC law failed to launch properly, Republicans are emboldened to exhume their efforts to kill the AHC law. Republicans are calling for Congressional hearings to be held to find out who should be held accountable for the failure of the AHC law to launch properly, with a profusion of help from the media and some Democrats.

Democrats think Republicans are blocking everything President Obama and Democrats are trying to do for the good of the country now; if Republicans win the White house and both bodies of Congress, Democrats will really feel the wrath of Tea party Republicans. On the other hand, maybe not, President Obama won’t be President anymore; we all know that’s the real reason Tea Party Republicans are pissed-off in the first place.

Affordable Health Care Roll-Out

It’s a known fact the roll-out of the Affordable Health Care (AHC) law was a disaster. With that said, if the people who are against AHC would have been as diligent against the build-up to the war in Iraq, 4,400 brave American soldiers would be alive today. The same people, who campaigned to invade Iraq, are the same people campaigning to invade Iran today.

Tea Party Republicans, the media, and some Democrats are calling for Congressional hearings to explain why the AHC roll-out was a failure; however, these same people didn’t call for anyone to be held accountable for leading this country into a war that shouldn’t have happened. I already know some will say, “You’re still blaming Bush for Obama’s failings.” The only thing I can say to that is, Republicans are still praising Reagan for any and everything good that happens.

Hear are the facts, the people who are against the AHC law has nothing to do with higher health care premiums, the debt ceiling, a government ran health care system, or anything resembling what I mentioned above.

The one and only thing these people are angry about is there’s a Black man living in the White House, period point blank.

Brainwashed or Brain Damaged

I watched Alveda King, niece of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak at the Value Voters Summit (VVS). The VVS is an event sponsored every year by far right wing Republicans and Tea Party members. After listening to Ms. King speak, I decided to do some research to find out if this woman is brainwashed or brain dead; I found out to my dismay, she’s both.

  • Ms. King branded the NAACP ‘race baiters’ for calling for federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

  • Ms. King stated, “Americans shouldn't fight or debate about the case, because it didn't raise any significant racial issues.” Ms. King also added, “I can assure you my uncle would never wear a hoodie.”

  • Ms. King sued to block the Affordable Health Care Act, citing the bill didn’t go far enough, even though the bill has an opt-out clause for religion-based employers.

Let me clear, I’m not writing about Ms. King because of her pro-life and religious views; I consider myself pro-life in certain circumstances. I believe it’s an outright disgrace for any person to allow themselves to be used as pawns by others to spread their hatred and racists views; and that’s exactly what Ms. King have allowed others to do to her.

The Noble Peace Prize and Education

This year’s winner of the Noble Peace Prize was awarded to The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The favorite for this year’s award, according to American journalists was Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl who at the age of 12 wrote a blog detailing life under Taliban rule. In retaliation the young Ms. Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. Ms. Yousafzai survived the attack, but clung to life unconscious and in critical condition. Later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in BirminghamEngland for intensive rehabilitation. Today Ms. Yousafzai is the face of an outspoken advocate for the Education of children and Human Rights all over the world.

The main reason I focused on this particular subject is because I wanted to bring attention to the poor state of the Education system in America. Ranking High School Educational scores in 33 countries, the highest American students ranked was 22.

  • In Reading, American students ranked ‘Dead Last’ 33!
  • In Math, American students ranked 27th
  • In Science, American students ranked 22nd

In order for our students to do better in their Education, we as parents got to do a better job of informing our children how important English, Math, and Science are important in escalating in future endeavors, regardless of their goals.

We as a society, especially Tea Party Republicans have to stop demonizing teachers as being nonessential employees. Teachers are the caretakers of our children while we as parents are doing what we have to do to make sure bills are paid and food is on the table.

Last but definitely not least, our American students need to get it through their heads that America’s Education system is not something that should be mistaken for some kind of place they go to see who are most popular, and discuss the most viewed video on YouTube.

It just breaks my heart to know that it was a sure death penalty for any slave to be caught in any way trying to upgrade their intelligence, and our young students of today take Education as a given and not an opportunity.

Tea Party and Government Shutdown

As a Vietnam veteran, my heart goes out to the families of the recent fallen soldiers who weren’t compensated immediately due to the government shutdown. With that said, I find it ironic and hypocritical how Tea Party Republicans are showing fake outrage because the federal government didn’t step-in and pay whatever the benefits the fallen soldiers families were due.

I need someone, anyone to explain to me how the government can find the audacity to choose to pay death benefits to families of fallen soldiers, and refuse to fund benefits to hungry children (The Defunding of Food Stamps and Head Start).

Here’s the problem with these phony people. The Tea Party Republicans have complained on every media outlet about how the federal government shouldn't be involved in the lives of the American people. These Fox News brainwashed followers have campaigned how they want the federal government out of Health Care, Education, the Environment, etc.

The only position these complete fools want to interject the federal government are women rights to have say-so of what they choose is best for their Health Care.

Government Shutdown

The government shutdown has nothing to do with the Affordable Health Care law, the debt limit, or anything else the Tea Party Republicans and a few brainwashed coloreds are complaining about. These extremely ignorant people are pissed-off about one thing and one thing only; they just can’t accept the fact that it’s a Black man living in the “White House, period."

Some Police Officers Are Under Paid

I know some will think by me being an ex-convict and a Marine Vietnam Veteran; JD how in the hell you can go there. I just need any and everybody who take the time to view what I’m about to say, to not panic.

Here’s my point where I’m coming from, some things in my life hit my brain very profoundly. Before I make a decision about anything I do or say, I do research on the subject matter.

I know by now, some of you are saying, “JD can you please get to the point.” Ok I gotcha, trail me close because I need this to stick to your brain.

Today as I’m writing this, some government members have their brain fixed on cutting Police Officer’s pay. If as a law abiding citizen something happen that you need help for; we all know you aint gonna call ‘Ghost Busters’.

If a hurricane hit, a tornado hit, or whatever disaster that hit that’s man-made or GOD created; we have people in our government who want to cut the pay of those who are at the front line to protect those who can’t protect themselves.

I refuse to leave out  School Teachers who we as parents send our bad ass children to watch over while we’re at work, or doing whatever it is that we do while our most precious possessions are in their care.

If you have a voice, let it be heard!!!

The Murder of Trayvon Martin and Vincent Chin

I really hate it when certain of us as people of color are outraged when things happen today, and totally ignore things that happened yesterday. The murder of Trayvon Martin, especially the way our judicial system laws are written; makes it seems as if it’s OK as long as the color barrier has the upper hand of defending each other. Before I go deep on why the color barrier play a big part in all of this; I want to confront those who try to explain their elementary point, without the benefit of intellect. Here’s where Mr. Vincent Chin demise, three decades ago coincide with Trayvon Martin’s demise.

At the Fancy Pants Club in Highland Park Detroit, Michigan on June 19, 1982; Mr. Chin was having a bachelor party. Subsequently, Mr. Chin and his Asian entourage were thrown out of the club after Mr. Ronald Ebens a Chrysler plant superintendent and his stepson, Mr. Michael Nitz confronted Mr. Chin with racial epithets.

Mr. Ebans took the confrontation to a higher level by declaring that, “It’s because of you little muthafuckers that we’re out of work.” Mr. Ebans were referring to America’s manufacturing auto jobs lost to Japan; the irony in this, Mr. Chin wasn’t Japanese. Mr. Ebans and Mr. Nitz walked away with probation for murdering a person of color.

My question is this, why is it that we as people of color have to wait until something or somebody have stepped on our big toe of manhood before we get to a point of, “OK, that’s enough!”

What about the tragic wrongs that were perpetrated a moment before Trayvon Martin and Mr. Chin; while all of us were silent?

Bill Cosby and Charles Barkley Comments on the Zimmerman Verdict

When I first heard the media giving their intake on the comments Bill Cosby and Charles Barkley made regarding the George Zimmerman verdict; I was outraged. But I did what I usually do, I went online and watched video of exactly what both men said, and how they said it. If I would’ve just accepted the way the media portrayed Mr. Cosby and Mr. Barkley comments; I would’ve branded them as UNCLE TOMS.

I agree with both men that the prosecution didn’t prove their case of Second Degree Murder or Manslaughter. In my brain, a clear case could’ve been argued of Felony Negligence; but the Judge disallowed Third degree Manslaughter, which took all other lesser charges off the table.

My point on speaking on this subject is because we as a people hastily demonize others, simply because we accept the media sensationalizing an event just to get ratings.

Here’s where the RACE CARD gets played. The media want clear thinking Americans (emphasis on clear thinking) to believe Trayvon Martin was running away from George Zimmerman; stopped and ran back towards a man that outweighed him at least fifty pounds and began pounding on him using ground and pound techniques, which were the same techniques that George Zimmerman trained for everyday. It doesn’t make sense.

As I have stated before, I begrudgingly accept RACISTS like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter to wholeheartedly accept the scenario cited above; but it makes my blood boil when BLACK UNCLE TOMS agree with these RACISTS.

Piers Morgan of CNN Interview with Larry Elder

Larry Elder interview with Piers Morgan yesterday (July 18, 2013) was disgraceful, it was UNCLE TOMMING at it's best.

Larry Elder said everything negative about the prosecution's star witness Ms. Rachel Jeantel, short of branding her as a dumb nigger. As a people, most of us have become accustomed to

racist like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter expressing their true feelings in the disparagement of people of color; but it makes my blood boil when UNCLE TOMS express their feelings likewise.

Anderson Cooper of CNN Interview with Juror B37

CNN’s interview by Anderson Cooper of Juror B37 gave insight, and a vivid perspective of how the 98% White jury viewed the case from the beginning.

Throughout the interview, Juror B37 repeatedly referred to George Zimmerman having the right to defend himself; in her brain, it’s as if Trayvon Martin were devoid of such rights.

Everyone heard Mr. Zimmerman on the phone with the 911 dispatcher plainly stating, “He’s running, he’s getting away.” That’s when the dispatcher asked Mr. Zimmerman, “Are you following him?” Mr. Zimmerman replied, yeah. The dispatcher told Mr. Zimmerman, “Ok, we don’t need you to do that.”

Tell me how a young man running away from a creepy ass cracker, gonna stop and come back and confront a person close to twice his size; it doesn’t make sense.

Juror B37 and the rest of the majority of the all White jury already had it in their brain, that Trayvon Martin was the aggressor before either the Prosecution, or the Defense started with their opening statements.

The reason why the jury came to their bias decision before the trial got underway is because Trayvon Martin was Black; Juror B37 proved that in her interview with Anderson Cooper.

Justice In Florida

A Black woman, Marissa Alexander sentenced twenty years for firing a warning shot.

A White man, George Zimmerman murdered an unarmed Black teenager, found not guilty by so called jurors of his peers.

If you want to live in a state that campaign that it's ok for a White person to murder a person of color; move to Florida.

Ignorant or Brainwashed

If you’re viewing this message, you’re looking at a real UNCLE TOM. This man name is David Webb, a proud Black Republican Tea Party member.

I'm not branding this man as a complete fool because he's a Republican Tea Party member; this man is a complete fool because he appeared on CNN and proved to everybody who watched him that he's a complete fool.

Mr. Webb, out of his own mouth said, "George Zimmerman was justified in killing Travon Martin." In order for anybody to wrap their brain around what this misguided, complete uninformed fool believe; you have to accept the fact that Mr. Webb is ignorant or brainwashed.

Mr. Webb refuse to acknowledge the fact that George Zimmerman possessed a criminal record of perpetrating violence against two human beings. One was a woman, the other was a police officer. What this complete idiot overlook is that a man with a record of violence, armed with a gun, took the life of a teenager that didn't have a record of any kind.

Ironically, the person with a history of violence murdered a human being with no history of violence, or nothing to show that the teenager violated any laws in all of his young years on earth. The only thing Travon Martin is guilty of, is being accosted by George Zimmerman breathing while BLACK.
None Violent Protest

For some crazy reason the media is shocked and amazed that Black people are not resulting to violence to get their point across. Just that point alone should let everybody know, Black or White; that we’re living in two Americas.

Let’s just face facts; the prosecution did an outright poor job presenting their case. George Zimmerman got away with murder; the cold part is we as a people have the gall to be upset with the outcome of the O.J. Simpson verdict.

It really pisses me off that the majority of the media are in shock and trepidation that people of color didn't resort to violence to make their point known.

The truth is staring each and everyone of us square in the face. A White person has the ability and the freedom to walk through any neighborhood without being viewed as a suspicious character. On the other hand, a Black person walking through any neighborhood, Black or White; he or she are viewed as a suspicious character, just because the color of their skin.

Not Guilty By Reason Of Ignorance

 I honestly believe if George Zimmerman would have been Black, the murder of a Black man by another Black man would have never made the news. The jury who found George Zimmerman not guilty was the least of the ignorance that played a part in this misguided practice of justice.

If the majority of people in our judicial system who are charged with murder would have been prosecuted by the prosecution team that prosecuted George Zimmerman; it would not be an over-crowding situation in prisons in America. The prosecution team dropped the ball big time; as bias as I am in this case, there is no way I could find George Zimmerman guilty with the way the prosecution team presented their case against George Zimmerman. In my brain the prosecution should lose their license to practice law, just on the grounds of incompetence.

To the point of not guilty by reason of ignorance is profound in one way and one way only. By the majority of jurors was over-whelming in behalf of George Zimmerman’s peers is the way our judiciary is set up; he was found not guilty by members of his peers.

Trayvon Martin didn’t have the opportunity to testify in his behalf because he wasn’t present at the trial. The main reason Trayvon Martin wasn’t present to tell his side of the story is because our society concocted laws to give George Zimmerman the right to kill an unarmed human being just because in George Zimmerman’s brain the person didn’t look like he belonged to be where he was.

If Trayvon Martin would’ve been White, do we as a people honestly believe that George Zimmerman would have been so willing to feel that he feared for his life and pulled the trigger to take a White guy life; I think not.

The only reason Trayvon Martin is dead is because George Zimmerman made the decision that this NIGGER doesn’t belong in this neighborhood.

Aid to Syria

Here we go again; right wing Republican war hawks are calling for America to engage in a civil war in Syria. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other chicken neck war hawk Republicans are campaigning to President Obama to send armaments to Syria. The United States have sent aid in the forms of food and medical supplies to the rebels against the Syrian Regime since the uprising began, but that’s not enough for the Republican pencil necks.

John McCain should know the more he tries to make it seems as if the President is not leading on foreign affairs, the more American allies and foes will view America as weak and untrustworthy; perhaps this is exactly what McCain and other Republicans want. Just recently Russia announced they’re sending ‘Air Defense Missiles’ to Syria to deter foreign ‘Hot Heads’ like John McCain

Our so called political leaders are sitting on their pompous asses while our infrastructure is collapsing. We’re looking at broad cuts in education, all the way to cutting aid for our senior citizens such as ‘Meals on Wheels’; but yet we can find money to fund those in foreign countries who have no problem killing each other.

We as a people need to start voting for those who have our best interest at heart, and stop staying steadfast to political party affiliation.

IRS Shocked the Nation

There is no way in my blood I can ever see myself voting for a Republican, but I can tell you this; there is no way I can ever see my self voting for a Democrat either. Here’s the reason why, the Tea Party and their Republican followers have nothing but disparaging comments in regards to President Obama; but on the other hand the supposedly Obama supporters have turned their back on the President and joined the Obama haters with their negative rhetoric.

We all know most Republicans and the majority of the media hate President Obama, but here’s what’s amazing, when the IRS targeted the NAACP under former President George Bush a month before the 2004 election, no outrage, no nothing; however, when the IRS targeted the Tea Party under President Barack Obama, nothing but outrage. One President WHITE, One President BLACK; we all know who the Republicans and the media gave the benefit of the doubt to.

I just can’t understand why the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, the House and the Senate Obama supporters are pissing in their boots scared to bring up the fact that the IRS did the same thing under the Bush administration; and nobody said anything. It’s as if when the WHITE President does something against citizens rights its okay; but when a Black President does something that’s presumed against citizen’s rights, its anarchy.

Words of Wisdom

The word IF, make no mistake, if is a big word when you choose your verbiage in proper perspective. Sometimes in life we present ourselves as we want to be accepted; utterly ignoring the congruence of the person we’re trying to connect with. In my brain, I call it thinking without the benefit of intellect; just something to marinade on.

IRS Targets Tea Party

It’s a dam shame that every media outlet and every person in Congress are outraged because the IRS investigated the Tea Party. This is the same day the school district of Buena Vista, Michigan had to shut down and lockout students due to lack of funds.

We as Americans can build schools in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Lebanon, and other countries that White Americans have guilt trips about; get over it. It’s totally bullshit that our children on American soil have to suffer because Congress can’t find money to fund schools for our children in Michigan because they’re hell bent on sacrificing our children to fund the Million and Billionaires.

But yet, everyday all we here is how the IRS invaded the Tea Party privacy; are you complete fools crazy (oxymoronic)? Where was all the outrage when the IRS went after the NAACP for criticizing George Bush one month before the 2004 election? The answer to the question is clear as BLACK and WHITE.

When the IRS went after the NAACP in ’04, the IRS actually audited the NAACP and some of their members. The only thing the IRS did with the TEA Party was investigate to see why these people deserve tax exempt status. There’s no secret the NAACP was totally against George Bush policies; likewise, there’s no secret the Tea Party are totally against President Obama policies. But here’s the kicker, the world is watching why we as a people show outrage for the BLACK President policies, but show nothing but tranquility for the WHITE President policies for the exact same thing. The defense rest your honor.

Don’t get it twisted, I believe both actions by the IRS in regards to the NAACP and the TEA Party was misguided, however, the fake outrage when it comes to the NAACP and the TEA Party is very indistinguishable.

It made me want to pewk watching Jenny Beth Martin (Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots) on C-SPAN; this woman had the nerve to make a comment regarding the Immigration Bill. Ms. Martin stated she want the border secured before any immigration reform begins. I’m sure the native Indians said the same thing when Ms. Martin’s ancestors (indentured servants) arrived here on the Mayflower.

Democrats today in my opinion are the most cowardly political party this country has ever known; even Charlie Rangel (D-NY) joined the ranks of increasing crowds of Obama haters. Republicans are out in the media each and everyday bashing President Obama, the cowardly Democrats are silent as a lamb. I have no more respect for CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, Current-TV, C-SPAN, CNBC, PBS, BBC, Politico,, The Democrat Black Caucus, The Democrat Party as a whole, Fox News, (I’ve never had respect for Fox News, outright haters) and much, much more of the media cowards.

Marinade on that, if you’re a Democrat, cowards only need to reply.

Benghazi Attack Congressional Hearings

Almost everyone agrees the Benghazi Consulate attack was a tragic act of terrorism; four brave Americans were murdered as a result of the attack. I agree with most Americans that the White House did a sloppy job of informing the news media and the public of what transpired. However, there is absolutely nothing to demonstrate that the White house participated in a cover up of the facts.

It’s obvious with House Republicans holding hearings on a regular basis, there’s definitely a witch hunt for political purposes by Republicans and the majority of the media.

My question is this, where was all the concern and Congressional hearings from Republicans and the daily coverage from the media for the invasion of Iraq that resulted in 4000+ brave military men and women to die because of an outright lie perpetrated by Bush and Cheney? The answer to the question is clear as Black and White.
