Puff! Puff! Pass! Jaycee talks Bud!

I believe that marijuana is a medicine. That said, I am not, nor have I ever, been a user of the drug. Why? The most prudent answer I will give for the sake of this discussion is cause I am not ill. Therefore, I have no need to use it.

Los Angeles County, which Long Beach is a part of is debating the cut off for the dispensaries. Some say it should be capped at 70. Others say 130 and so on. Los Angeles Times/Pat Morrison KCRW

Since the State of California implemented the voters will to allow the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes several dispensaries have sprung up like.....well, weed! (No pun intended)

There are those who believe that having a dispensary near them will attract a low element and increase crime. In fairness, there has been no statistics to back up this concern but in response, some cities have proposed the caps on new dispensaries or limiting them to certain areas of the city. (A De facto Red light District)

This is what I would like to talk about. I am not in favor of State or Local Governments relegating the dispensaries to one local.

Why?

Well, because it would limit that areas ability to attract viable and respectable businesses and residents. For example, Compton, My hometown, already has struggled with a terrible reputation Worldwide because of the export of Gang life images via music and movies. Compton was a dairy town with a rich history. There is still farm and dairy land in use. I love watching Black Cowboys in the city.

Maybe they will put all the dispensaries on Long Beach Blvd. and Rosecrans Ave. Sure wouldn't want to sell a home on Tucker, Queensdale or Ezmirlian Streets. It would be the equivalent of putting all the liquor stores, smoke shops, strip bars, pawnshops, check cashing and bail bonds in one concentrated area.

I propose that State and Local officials place the dispensaries where they belong in the Medical Districts. That's right with the Pharmacies and the Hospitals. If a Doctor can prescribe it, then, why can't someone, with that prescription, go to a dispensary right next to the Hospital?

This would eliminate any stigmas associated with the recreational user and those who market and sell to them. It would also protect the citizens. A Cancer patient does not want to travel to a seedy part of town to fill their prescription after a rousing session of Chemo! And they shouldn't have to!

You don't think that predators would prey on the Cancer ridden? Of course, they would!

Now, Legalization is a whole other issue! Let's not waste time arguing about that cause we are not there yet! So, Brother Starshine, (Not real person) standing outside of the local slurpee shop slanging that chronic! This ain't about you or your customer/fan base!

This is about State and Local governments passing the buck literally to everyone else. Your neighborhood could become Ground Zero! Your property valves are limited!

Isn't that NIMBY Mista Jaycee?

No, cause I am not saying that the dispensaries should not be in my neighborhood. I am saying that they City planners should place them in strategic areas of the city. First, in the Medical district! Secondly, no one neighborhood should have more than two every 8 blocks.

Spread em out!

But Local officials should also make sure that they look good. Maybe I have a nice little grocery market! I don't want a tie dyed head shop masquerading as a medical marijuana dispensaries. Discretion and good taste should be the standard!

Guess what City Government! The Working Class and The Poor don't want to be the dumping ground for the rest of the Cities economic and social classes! We like Bars, Tattoos, Strip Clubs, Smoke Shops and Liquor as much as you do! But we don't want to BE the people and areas you dump your undesirables and hide your secrets!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

We Know Terror Yet We Do Not Fear!

The Son of a wealthy Nigerian Banker tried to detonate an explosive device aboard a plane and once again America has been shaken to its core. While, I watched the news, it struck me that this wealthy, educated kid decided to kill himself in the name of some cause for glory that he would never enjoy.

He's a kid! At 23 years old, I didn't know a thing about life! BE honest, when you were 23 how much did you really know about Life? If you're 23 or younger think about it. Have you ever held your Baby in your arms knowing that you are responsible for what the child learns, its safety, its well being?

Have you ever held someone you loved, or thought you loved, and thought while covered in your lovers musk, that I want to make a Baby with you? Have you ever lost a Baby? Have you ever wondered what God's (IAM) plan was for you and it?

How many times have you walked out of school, happy cause you passed an exam or you went to a dance and just enjoyed life? Has anyone ever just looked at you and told you that you were beautiful! Do you remember how that felt?

So, what could this young boy know about life? Judging by his actions nothing! Now, he's an inmate, nothing more than a burned pariah! Not a hero or a martyr! Worse, those who enabled and encouraged him have moved on to the new martyr hopeful! They are somewhere in the Mosque/Synagogue/Church/Temple of Satan pumping his or her heads full of the same bullshit!

Terror! Webster defines it as to frighten.

Terrorism: To frighten in order to coerce!

Black Folks know all about being frightened! We know it so well that it's part of our DNA since we were kidnapped from the Continent. If a captive tried to escape! He was beaten, mutilated or killed in front of the other captives in order to create what?????? Fear! Coercion! To Terrorize! The threat was always there!

If you tried to break the social order of things. Take a job that the ruling social order (White Community) didn't think you should have. You could be ran out of town or worse Lynch! Again, as an example. To Coerce! To create Fear! To Terrorize! We know the faces of Terror! The Klan, The Nazis, sometimes the Police! We know!

We know unjust laws, unfair wages and policies! We know apartheid on a level that most Human Beings will never understand. Have you ever wondered what else, is in that Booster shot, you just allowed that Doctor to give your child?

Do you ever wonder if the Birth Control Shot you took would leave you sterile? Terror! Creating mistrust! Dissension! Get it?

Black Folks have learned to fight and to progress in spite of the fear! We fight on with Education! We fight on with our Music! We fight on with our creativity! Show me a Terrorist and I will show you Twenty Bible carrying, Quran reciting, Praise singing Men for every one terrorist feeding the poor, cleaning a neighborhood of graffiti and trash or creating a school for the Young ones to be educated in.

We adapt! We know that we must BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful! in order to survive daily! So, Mr. Obama! We know that you can give a speech! Now, is the time to lead! We need you to provide good actions and instructions on how we can defeat those who would inspire terror.

Here's a few examples: 1. Make all the TSA jobs Federal! Raise the job requirements, Education, training and Pay!

2. Do the same for the Security Officers at the Ports and Refineries! Send in the Army and Marines if necessary but secure these places.

The day of the underpaid, undereducated but overworked worker or Grandma and Grandpa guarding the gates should be over!

3. Flight attendants should be retrained in Martial arts and BE Physically fit and trained in some EMT and Emergency rescue procedures. If it's never been done before then it should be created and implemented!

4. Investment in the infrastructure. This is the greatest fear of the would be terrorist! Rebuild the bridges, freeways, roads, Water, power and sewage systems! If you employ Americans to repair America then money goes back into the American Economy.

5. Education! Plain and simple Education needs to be the top priority for all the states! We need a highly educated workforce!

History has called you to Lead Mr. Obama not just to BE Historical! You are the First openly acknowledged Black President! That's Historical! Now, it's time to MAKE History by doing what the other 40 some odd other Presidents before you could not do! Forget the Politricks and get the WORK done!

Bondage will not reign! Terror will NOT succeed!

You Can't Flush A Fruit Cake! Repost!


This Poem is a re post from last year!





Plastered smile on my face as I enter place of employment

Laugh, shake hands and give illusions of enjoyment

politely nod to the one who earlier this year stabbed me in rear

Don't tip my hand that I ain't happy to be here

Can't let down my hair or let my guard be licked

The Liquor may flow but past parties show

Careers on the upswing get damaged never to be fixed!

Smile, wave, I don't know how much more I can take!

Lame Secret Santa Gift, Smile, Thank You.... All Fake!

Whew glad that's over! I don't know how much more of it I could take!

The Bonus I earned!
The company plaque I burned!
But You can't Flush a Fruit Cake!

Lesson Learned!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

JESUS IS NOT THE (REAL) REASON FOR THE SEASON!

Mary with the infant Jesus

Happy Holidays!


It's MERRY CHRISTMAS MISTA JAYCEE!

Is it now?
Well, Merry Christmas (Mass of Christ) Happy Hanukkah, Glorious Winter Solstice, and Happy New Year!


Oh, and Happy Birthday Nimrod!


Who?
King Nimrod, YOU KNOW! The Babylonian King? Also known as Osiris, Baal, Tammuz.....
Doesn't ring a bell huh?
You mean you celebrate his birthday every December 25th (The Winter Solstice) and you don't know KING NIMROD? He and his Wife, Semiramis, were WORSHIPPED ALL OVER as GODS!


Bronze statue of Queen Semiramis as The Goddess Ishtar


Queen Semiramis, AKA Ashtoreh, ISIS, Diana, VENUS??? No, never heard of her huh?

Well, Easter is the celebration of her! (The Summer Solstice)
But Mista Jaycee ain't December 25th Jesus's Birthday?
NO! Come on Christians! You know, December 25th, ain't never been Jesus Birthday!
It became the day that Christians celebrated the birth of the Christ after the 2nd Nician Council.

The Christmas Celebration is.......dare I say it.......

Say it! Say it! Dare! Dare!
PAGAN!
"Jesus is the reason for the Season!"

CON! You being CONNED!
Yeshua (Jesus) is NOT the "Real" reason for the season but he could be! HE COULD BE!

The Seventh Day Adventist Church Founding Member Ellen G. White when asked if Christians should have a "Christmas Tree" wrote this statement.

"If you choose to have a Christmas Tree that's fine but decorate it with Money for the Poor!"

That's the true Christ mission right!
"I was Naked and you Clothed me! I was Hungry and You fed me! I was Homeless and you gave a place to rest! What you do to the least You do to ME!" Jesus
Now, let me ask you. Have you smiled or offered a kind word to anyone this Holiday season?
Have you offered to help someone in need? Maybe, they sidewalk needs to be salted or they lawn mowed or the trash cans moved out. Maybe you could donate a few books, a few blankets, buy a few cans of food........
Don't get caught up with the Whole Churched up JESUS is the Reason or It's MERRY CHRISTMAS! These things did not come from CHRIST!
It's just a Political thing! A Counterfeit Christian thing designed to move an earthly counterfeit Christian movement into power!
Real Christian behavior extends from Real CHRIST Inspired Love!
Show some real love by being kind and of real service to someone. In times like these we really need it!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Spiritual Food For Thought!

Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. Romans 12: 17 New Standard Version

Thou shall not Covet! Book of Exodus


There was a Barber and his Wife and she was beautiful.....Sweeney Todd


At Last! My Arm is complete Again! Sweeney Todd


Spoiler Alert! If you have not seen "Tim Burtons Version of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street wait! BE Warned!

So dig, I checked out the latest adaptation of Sweeney Todd based on the stage play by Stephen Sondheim and directed by Tim Burton. Johnny Depp did a wonderful job although this is the only version of the play I have seen. Actually, the story goes back to the late 1700's in one of the penny soap opera novels of that day. "String of Pearls"

The story begins with two London bound sailors as they reach the outskirts of the City. The younger is optimistic and joyful! The older is a brooding pessimist bitterly returning to exact vengeance on those responsible for his plight and hopefully regain what has been taken from him.

"The Dark Side grants power but demands that it be fed power for it's own sake!" Darth Revan

The story in short is about Benjamin Barker, a barber, with a lovely blond Wife and Daughter and how the Evil Judge Turbin, covets Barkers Wife and frames and sentences him to life imprisonment in Australia. (A British Penal Colony)

Barker has returned to London, 15 years later, renamed Sweeney Todd to exact revenge! The two sailors split and Todd visits Fleet Street, his former home. There, he meets Mrs. Lovett, who recognizes him in spite of his age and hardened face. Mrs. Lovett, updates Todd, on his Wife! She's Dead!

Judge Turbin, has raped her! Disgraced her! She's committed suicide and judge Turbin has taken your daughter as his own!

Todd, now seeks to free his daughter, then, exact his revenge! Fate saves Judge Turbin from Todd who then goes on a calculated murder spree! Mrs. Lovett, professing her love for Todd, offers a solution for body disposal! She bakes the bodies into her pies!

Oh, how I love you Mr. Todd!

Now, for the spiritual food!

Todd, had every right to be angry at Judge Turbin! He, even had a duty, to save his daughter from his claws! But he had no right to go on a murder spree! Killing innocents! This was madness!

In the end, Todd, kills a bag lady, who happened upon Judge Turbin's murder scene. He also finds another witness! (His Daughter freed by his young co sailor) She is disguised and neither recognizes the other.

Hastened by Mrs. Lovett's screaming! He spares the other witness! He goes downstairs to find that the bag lady he dispatched earlier is none other than his long dead Wife! Mrs. Lovett had lied to him! She coveted him and wanted him! She knew, the true fate, of Mrs. Barker all along!

Todd is the Victim of two people coveting! Judge Turbin, who coveted his Wife! And Mrs. Lovett who coveted HIM!

"Everyone who craps on you ain't ya enemy and everyone who cleans you up ain't your friend!" Author Unknown

Although Todd had been victimized by both people. He became consumed by rage and vengeance and ended up not having any of the things he desired!

All the players got their just desserts which was Nothing except Todd died with the knowledge that HE, not them, ultimately destroyed himself by taking his revenge.

Go in Peace!

NO OFFENSE!


Typical:

Main Entry: typ·i·cal

Etymology: Late Latin typicalis, from typicus, from Greek typikos, from typos model — more at
type
Date: 1609

symbolic2 a : combining or exhibiting the essential characteristics of a group houses> b : conforming to a type


Courtesy of Merriman-Webster Dictionary Online


Last week I received an email from a writer of a blog I "Used" to read. She no longer writes a daily blog but she has a Twitter account and a Vlog. She asked me for ideas for her first video blogcast.


So, I suggested that she write on her Black College experience and more intently about her Divine Nine plus one Sorority.


She responded rudely and I could not figure out why. I pointed her rudeness out and reminded her that she asked me.


Her response was that I should not have asked you as you are the "Typical Black Blogger"! You only write about "Black Things etc. Etc.


WOW!


I will be the first to admit that Mista Jaycee has a tremendous ego! So the "Typical" comment got me first but I was more offended by the "Black Blogger" Tag!


First, Mista Jaycee is UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK! I am so PROUD of this! Yes, my "High Yallah, Redbone" behind is PROUD of his Afrikan Ancestry and the Afrikan Creole blend that makes up Afrikan Americans!


What she wrote was a lie! A LIE! A Canard! A blatant untruth about me and my blog. I write about anything and everything! I do not disguise the fact that I am a Black though. When I review the "Classical Thursday" Shows from the Hollywood Bowl or from Walt Disney Hall am I the "Typical Black Blogger"?


When I profess my love for the Dave Matthews Band or the Grateful Dead am I the "Typical Black Blogger" then?


When I began this blog I criticized the Police and Barack "Bam Bam" Obama with equal measure. I proclaimed then as I do now. I AM a BLACK DUDE! I do not belong to the Democrats just cause I like Obama! I am NOT a Republican or Communist just cause I don't run around like the Democrats are the saviors of Black Folks!


But back to the "Typical" comment. First, she insulted me then she tried to clean it up with this Bull Shit "No Offense" comment!


What????


NO OFFENSE????!


What the heck does that mean?


"You're Ugly! NO OFFENSE! So, I know you would understand the importance of having a "great" personality! "


EFF YOU! That's how Mrs. Jaycee wanted me to respond. I was tempted but didn't!


She minimized what I do! She belittled my art! I've posted some great interviews, reviews, poetry and satire here. I work hard at it! While I will be the first to admit that there are some great blogs out there and many are greater than I. "Typical" can not be used to describe me or mine.


What "Typical Black Blogger" means really is that they are NOT catering or pandering to the mainstream American Culture.


I am still debating if I will post the exchange. Nah! But I will definitely save that ish! Again, the moral to the story is to always keep the Safety on your Mouth!

Hanukkah Begins!

They celebrated the re dedication of the alter for eight days; there was great rejoicing as they brought burnt-offerings and sacrificed peace-offerings and thank offerings. They decorated the front of the temple with golden wreaths and ornamental shields. They renewed the gates and the priests rooms, and fitted them with doors. There was great merry making among the people and the disgrace brought on them by the people was removed. Then Judas, his brothers, and the whole congregation of Israel decreed that the re dedication of the altar should be observed with joy and gladness at the same season each year, for the twenty-fifth of Kislev.

1st Maccabees Chapter 4: Verses 56-59 The Apocrypha


Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish family and friends.

I Don't Think Congress Got the Message!



You voted for change didn't you! I did! Well it seems the House and Senate didn't get your message!

Barack campaigned and Won by promising change!

Did the Democrats agree to this? Apparently NOT! They still doing the same ole Ish!

Did the Republicans realize that when an overwhelming majority voted last year that it was in part because of their policies and lack of new ideas and vision? Again, they don't care!

So what are YOU gonna do about it?!!!!

Eric Benet Revisited or Why the Hell is Tiger Woods a Cheating Hosebag!


The So called News still has not moved on from Tiger Woods and his infidelity! So I think I'll take the time to ask those in the struggle a question no one has asked yet.


Why You cheat Tiger?


No, not that question!


Tiger, surely you knew that you would be surrounded by rooms full of nubile nymphs everyday Why did you get married?


Nubile Nymphs, Mista Jaycee?


Yeah, that's a good description for the Ladies. Several Women of late have claimed that "they" have been with Tiger!

"Why"???? Why would anyone, single or not, admit to having been in an extra-martial affair?

For 15 Minutes of Fame?

But that's a different post. Back to subject. Tiger, why did you get married?


I imagine that he would say that he wanted to be with someone who knew "Eldrick Woods" Not Tiger Woods! He wanted something that was real.


Ask yourself, what would you do Ladies, if you were Famous and everyone desired you?


I think part of the reason folks get trapped in these situations is that they get addicted to being Desired. It has to be intoxicating!



I think back on the singer Eric Benet and his noted infidelity to Oscar Winner Halle Berry!





R and B Vocalist Eric Benet AKA The Artist formerly known as the Dumbest Dude of the Planet!
Halle is one of the most desired Women on the Planet!

Everyone, including me, felt Eric had to be the biggest fool ever born! But as I listened to how the mess unfolded. It turns out that some of the Women Eric had been with were Halle's "Friends"!

Could it be that Halle's "Friends" envy, jealousy and hatred of Halle led them to commit adultery with Eric?

How many of us has that friend who just takes center stage whenever they enter a room?

Maybe, it's your Homeboy, although you stay in shape, dress well, have some education and manners and a lil money. Ladies just seem to hand him their fertility?

Don't that make you mad? A lil envious maybe! It's not Fair is it?

After all you've seen that Knuckka at his worst! His house is filthy yet Playmates offer to clean it! Damn!

Maybe, your friend is a size two and has "Real" Long Hair! Maybe she eats like a linebacker and doesn't gain a pound! Maybe she's had a "Body" since y'all hit puberty and she completely bypassed the training bra!

You've always been the "Ugly Best Friend" whenever you're standing next to her! Just her! You in the top TEN otherwise!

So, imagine, what a person may do, to answer some perceived injustice? To gain some revenge! To fulfill some fantasy that they feel they are owed but denied!

You don't think Halle's friends may have been jealous of all the attention Halle got! She was in all the mags, all the websites and Men when asked answered that the most desired is Halle Berry!


Maybe they were jealous cause Halle Got ERIC too! Eric is Handsome! Plenty of women practically offered to bear Eric's offspring before they ever heard him sing a note! I'm sure of it!

Now my point! What if you walked into a room where every WOMAN is Halle Berry or better! And they all are offering to give you some! What would you do?

Rippa Stop drooling!

Mista Jaycee! None of the Women that say they've been with Tiger look like a Supermodel!

Doesn't matter! It don't! You walk into a room where Women desire you! It's Free P*ss*e! FREE! P*ss*E!

P*SS*E! Has brought down KINGS! Administrations! Movements! It has brought down Ministries! And you think it's easy to resist it!

So, now back to Eldrick "Tiger" Woods! He's a GOLFER! How many other PRO GOLFERS are in martial scandals now?

I'll Wait!

How many playboy Playmates or helpless Skanks are trolling the bars looking for the GOLF PRO? Ooh, I love me some Phil Mickelson!

I'll wait!

Probably not as many as the average NBA basketball Player on a nightly basis!

But here it's happening to you. Women want you! You Rich! You successful! You got some Charisma! You considered the first team, the A list, THE PRIME CUT!

Wait, someone wants to sexxx you without any conditions! What would you do?

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Mrs. Jaycee made me see Twilight New Moon!



Ahhhhhhhhh Love!


Surely a splendid thing! A wonderful gift from the Almighty! It can make you do some really silly things.


Love, will make a grown Man listen to music he doesn't like, wear shirts that he would never bury his worst enemy in, and see a movie he's not interested in!


Now, I love Vampires, Werewolves and the classic canon of Monsters! But Twilight New Moon was just lame!

Excuse me...LAAAAAME!

Plot development can not be neglected even if it is a TEEEN Movie!

First, there's BELLA who for about 75 minutes of the movie walks around being depressed!

Oh, Edward! The Hundred and nine year old, Vampire dude, doesn't want me! BOOOO EFFIN HOOO!

Then, there's JAKE! Jake has been in the "FRIEND ZONE" since last movie! Bella of course digs Jake but she's with Edward the undead love of her 17 year old life! But with Edward gone. Jake suddenly gets BUFF! And of course they have to hang out! Oh, how long did it take you to figure out that JAKE is gonna be some sort of Monster? " It's like he's waiting on me!"

Sounds like some sort of HOMO Fantasy! LAME!

Then there's the whole HOMO Erotic Werewolf gang! Why do they all have to walk around shirtless, in shorts, flexin for well.....each other for??????

Lame! LAME LLLLLAAAAAME!

Can you tell I really didn't like this film?

For a good Vampire, Werewolf, Ghost Story check out the BBC's "BEING HUMAN" much better story, character development and even some Black Folks!

9-11 Suspect Trail in New York! Bout Time!



Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama have decided to try several high profile terror suspects in New York City. There has been much discussion and debate whether this is the right thing to do. Back in 1993, when then, President Bill Clinton, decided to try the first World Trade Center Bombing suspects under American Jurisprudence some in the legal community held that this was wrong.

But let's be real about "this" trail and in possible aftermath. Obama and his administrators have to do something! They have to! They have to do it for the sake of the Country!

Fact! John Yoo, John Ashcroft, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush Pissed in the Kool Aid!

You arrested enemy combatants and terror suspects! Fine! Nothing wrong with that as long as you followed the rules of the Geneva Convention. It was the guide!

They didn't do that! They played hard and loose with the Geneva Conventions! They played fast with the definition of Torture! They played fast and loose with the term enemy combatant!

They did that not the terror Suspects! So you captured them, threw them in a prison someplace...... see every one captured and questioned may not have been in Gitmo!

They had no access to a Lawyer of any kind!

This goes against the heart of our American System. Arrest, adversarial trail before an impartial jury, right to confront the accusers, right to know the charges levied against them! Hallmarks!

Bush and Co pissed in the Kool aid! So now we got Khalid Shaykh Muhammed! Possibly a very scary dude coming up for trail for the Mass Murder of 3000 United States Citizens on American Soil. And you may have tortured him! His confessions may have been obtained under torture!

Any Law school dummy knows that this would get any suspect free in this country!

The whole world is watching this and you piss in the Kool Aid!

So now what do we do? Obama did the only thing he could do! The only real option you left him! Try them in an American Court and try to convict in spite of all the mess you made!

Bush and Co made this mess! Obama is just having to clean up one more mess that never should have been made in the first place. The Geneva Conventions were written and signed after blood had been spilled! They guided us! We didn't play with them! The Bill of Rights has guided us! We didn't play with them! The Constitution, however flawed, guided us!

Here's to what they should have gotten in the first place. The Real hallmark of Democracy! The right to be heard in court!

BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!

Bam Bam Bows!


The bow is perhaps one of the most misunderstood traditions in martial arts. Many people may think of it as a religious affiliation or as a sign of a master-slave type relationship between an instructor and his or her student. This interpretation is false. Instead, the bow is done to show humility and is used to express a lack of arrogance. In addition, it serves as a sign of mutual respect between teachers and students and between practitioners and opponents. If you were to compare the Asian bow to a Western tradition, it would most closely represent the handshake. Courtesy of LOTUS Martial Arts

Blessed are the Meek for they will inherit the Earth. The Beatitudes

Anyone who would call themselves a Master must be the greatest Servant of All! Jesus of Nazareth


Obama bowed! That's what they were commentating on this passed weekend. "It's beneath Presidential dignity!"



Why? Because no American President has ever done this in memory?



In rebuttal to the charge that it's beneath Presidential dignity I would like to interject that Barack Obama is no Ordinary American President!



There has never been a American Black President! Never! So everything that Obama does is going to be a first! Everything Obama does will have a lasting effect for years to come!

So, pardon a Brotha for trying to be a polite President.

Now, as to that Presidential dignity thing.... Bush Jr. Didn't add alot of that to the office. He held congress, the constitution, the Bill of Rights, The United Nations and so on in open contempt! The rest of the World's rights, opinions be Damned cause God (IAM) made him President!

No, even though America may be a Super Power it won't hurt America for its head of state to practice humility and be Meek.

Seems to me another Chief was all about meekness......What was his name again???

Oh Yeah, Jesus!

Mista Jaycee Running Round Long Beach!

















Dig, I've been running around Long Beach, my current home city, and I've had my camera at the ready so I just wanted to show some of the interesting sites from my perspective.


I've often felt that a cities true beauty lay in the small things like hole in the wall restaurants, street musicians, graffiti art murals and the local churches and temples.


I wish that the City Council agreed cause it seems that there are those who would like to clear away any individual charm by turning the city into a shiny, characterless set of individual enclaves. Just like the neighborhoods in Bradbury's 451.


Happy Friday!

Mista Jaycee's Serious List of The Greatest Male Vocalists!

The long time readers of A Choice of Weapons have read, re-read, argued for and against and suggested Divas who should make Mista Jaycee's list on the Divas. It's still one of the most popular posts. But now it's time for me to view the MEN!


Now, these lists of course can be subjective according to one's preference, bias and taste so I decided to list a few who I feel have a SOUND no other Male vocalist has. That's right the VOICE!


First Up!



1. Eddie Levert of the Mighty OJay's!

I challenge anyone to dispute this! Name me one singer who EDDIE sounded like! If they exist, I don't think they've been recorded because Eddie Levert's voice like the DIVA Gladys Knight just seems to have come out of nowhere!

Well, what about Gerald Levert Mista Jaycee?


Gerald proves my case! Gerald sounds like Eddie with a little Donnie and Stevie thrown in the pot! Gerald was the next step from Eddie, but his Daddy is the mode! The Bonafide Original!

2. Jeffrey Osborne formerly of LTD!



Before Mr. Osborne was The "Woo Woo" Man, he held the lead on several R and B classics including "Jam!" "Shine On" "Concentrate on You" "Where Did We go Wrong?" and then went on to command a huge market share in the eighties with "Stay with Me tonight!" "On the Wings of Love" and of course "You should be mine" (The Woo Woo Song)


3. Phillipe Wynne formerly of the Spinners, Wynne Jammin and a member of the PFUNK Incorporated Thang!


Who in the world sounds like Philipe? Go ahead name em!



Take a listen to "Sadie" It take a fool to learn that Love don't love nobody" Mighty Love, the Rubber band Man or go to PFUNK's Knee Deep and listen to his ad libs. "I got ants in my pants and I need to dance and tell me that ain't classic!

4. Ronnie Isley


Before he was Mr. Big to R. Kelly, he and the Brothers Isley made hit records for DECADES! The Beatles covered "Twist and Shout" "Shout" was made even more famous when a singer named Duane Jessie took the part of Otis Day and the Knights and sang it in "Animal House". A budding guitar genius named Jimi Hendrix was their sideman before becoming a ROCK LEGEND! Ronnie's voice is unmatched. Ronnie is NOT the greatest Singer but who sounds like him. Ronnie is Easily one of the greatest Song Stylists to caress a Lyric! Bar None # 1


And just to throw a Rock! My last entry! Drum roll please!

5. Luther Vandross! The epitome of class, sophistication and smoove styling. Only Barry White and Ronnie Isley probably ushered in more population growth spurts in the last thirty years!


Sorry El Debarge, Sorry Prince, Sorry Michael! Damn! I miss Mike!
No, for Babymakin Music There's only one sure fire # 1 Dude! It's Luther Vandross bar none. The renowned Background vocal assassin turned Solo Artist sounds like Who? That's right No one! Listen to Chic, David Bowie's Fame or Stevie's Part Time Lovers and you hear that voice! I would say that his first quartet of albums show this beyond a shadow.

Even when he went POP (which I refer to as the Weenie years) that VOICE was still the tops!

So now, go to your corners and come out swinging!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Spiritual Food For Thought!


This morning devotional thought comes from the Noble Quran. Surah (Chapter) 2 Verse:256

256. Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error. Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah (God) hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

Update! Melody Ross Murder Arrests Made!

Long Beach City 1st District Council Member Robert Garcia announced that there have been two arrests made in the murder of Wilson Student/Athlete Melody Ross.

Cool! This is progress and I commend the councilman for being forward thinking and having a website, email and all these new fangled techie things to get the word out and communicate with the people.

Since Melody's Murder, we the people have had to endure two other murder stories. The mass shootings in Orlando and at Fort Hood!

A Choice of Weapons, Mista Jaycee, and members of our community would extend our condolences to the families in all these recent tragedies. We grieve and fight alongside you to prevent these tragedies from happening whenever possible.

May the Peace of the Lord be upon the families and Justice reign.

Rage Needed Now! The Murder of Melody Ross!

Saturday Evening, October 31st, a Honor student/athlete was murdered following the Long Beach Wilson/Long Beach Poly High School Homecoming Football game. Her name was Melody Ross and she was struck by a bullet on 7th/Ximeno near 10th Street. Feel free to go to the Long Beach Press Telegram's website where you can read all the known details.



No, this post is about the Gift of Rage! Yes! Rage is a Gift! We need it NOW!



We don't need another article stating the obvious.



"Oh, what a senseless murder! Those butchers! They didn't deserve to die.....

insert sobs!"



No one deserves to die! All murders believe it or not are senseless! So let us stop stating the obvious and get to the point!



Melody Ross, (Peace of the Lord upon her) is NOT the first young person to be murdered this year and she won't be the last! There that's the problem! She ain't the first, and she won't be ,the Last. But what have we done since the last senseless murder? What are we going to do now that this one has occurred?

Anyone remember Breon Taylor and Dennis Moses? Both were murdered when a gunman fired into a crowded party at a Masonic Hall in Lakewood, California last January 19, 2008. Is it mere coincidence that all three died by stray shots fired indiscriminately?

We Should be Enraged? Rage is good and necessary so we don't get used to things like this. We should never allow ourselves to get used to it! BE Angry then Do something to change it!

See last time I wrote a few posts just like I'm doing on this one but to what end? A couple of days of documented sadness and grief! No what we need is RAGE! We need to become so ENRAGED at the slaughter of our Young People that we ATTACK the PROBLEM!

Here's what we can do. Contact Mayor Bob Foster, the Long Beach City Council, The Press Telegram, The District Weekly, The Long Beach Times, The Los Angeles Sentinel, Long Beach Police Chief Billy Chief Billy Quach , UNITY 1 and any other anti gang and anti violence groups that you can think of. Write them, fax them, light em up with tweets, Face Book, My space, Hit the radio stations. Hit up Dominique Diprima at KJLH from the Front page.



But that's just the first thing. Then we need to fill the PTA/Parents association meetings to the Brim!



Here's something that never gets suggested first! Call the local chapter of the National Rifle Association and get them involved. Ain't they the ones always hollering about Gun rights. Well, you want to own guns then you can be responsible for em too. They should be the first to lead the fight against the use of undocumented or unsecured hand weapons. Get they Azzes on the phone!



Don't Just Howl! Get Enraged Then Get Engaged!

Trick Or Treat? This Year, TRICK!

Friendly Furniture Salesman wears Scary Costume!

(Photo by Mista Jaycee)


I hope that every one had a great Free Candy Day! (Halloween) I had fun but this year I got had more of a trick than a treat! And it wasn't the scary clown dude. He was friendly and a great sport! Thanks for letting me photograph you even though I didn't let you get close to me.


Clowns are EVIL but I digress!


So dig, I'm up late chilling on Facebook when I went to a fellow poets page. There was a question posted on his page. Do you think -------- has ever been to a strip club? Yes or No?


I answered yes and then a Face book program prompted me to take another quiz. Cool! It asked me did I think another of my Face book friends had ever kissed a Guy? Yes or NO?


I answered NO! But a few minutes later that same friend commented saying Hey! What kind of Ish is this? Don't nobody question my MANHOOD! Take that ISH DOWN MUTHA!


So I'm like what? So I look on my page and the question has been flipped. Mista Jaycee asks do YOU think Such and Such has ever kissed a Guy? VOTE YES OR NO?


What? I never asked that? All I did was answer a question. So I ended up going to alot of different pages and deleting that quiz. I got Tricked!


I immediately emailed and apologized to him for the grief and it's cool now but it could have went real bad. Heck! It did go bad! Done with the Face book Quizzes cause you think it's one thang and it ends up being another.


With that...

Fiction: Effin D Cups Part 3

Hey Y'all,
So this is the last section of the Effin D Cups! We left Wilt and Dr. John Morales in Dr. Morales Home office.


“Wilt, I going to draw some blood and have your hormones tested. I’ll need a sperm sample too. I’m going to take you off work and place you on disability until we figure this out. Don’t worry we will work it out.”



I hated his reassuring voice right now. Plus, he seemed too excited about this. He had this insane gleam in his eye. At this thought, I decided to ask some real questions.


“John, what am I gonna do? I, not we woke up with breasts. I’m a man!


A Man! Damn it! What am I going to do? , I felt myself going over the edge. How will I be able to get through this? At that moment a text was coming through. By the ring tone I knew Sheba Jones wanted to take another bite out me.


I ignored it cause of all the times that this was not the time. This was the time! Instead I concentrated on what John was saying.


“Wilt if you couldn’t walk tomorrow what would you do? Would you give up and say I can’t walk so that’s it? If you couldn’t have children would you still be a man? Could you still be loved and love someone? He paused for dramatic effect. Shit, was honestly pissing me off. Sheba sent another text.

This one was marked URGENT! I ignored it because SHEBA was epitome of the word Drama and I didn’t have time for this. She always texted URGENT! Dr. John was still going.


“Well, Wilton Tate? You are Wilton Tate, a man. That doesn’t change because of the shell. And I might add that gender doesn’t make up all of what you are. Who are you at your essence? What are you at you essence?"


He looked at the breasts.

"John, stop staring at my breasts please.”

He laughed.


I can’t help it some poor adult film stars missing those. We both found ourselves laughing, loud and hardy. Then John, put on his Doctor cap again, and began to ask me questions about what had I been doing in the last two weeks. We moved from the examination room into his small office. Once again, Drama Queen Sheba, my Sexxxy friend with benefits texted a Brotha!

URGENT!


"Damn it Wilton! Answer this phone! Need to talk to you now! Right now!"

John stared at me, obviously wondering about the rash of texts. There was a knock at the door. His wife stepped in, I found myself covering my breasts, I mean, the twins! She looked at us, Chai tea tray and saucers held before her. This was just a ruse! John looked at his Wife as a disapproving Father would a naughty child. She didn’t flinch! But her accent became more pronounced.


“Wha Cha want me do? Boy interrupt me Saturday with me Husband yelling bout breasts! I had to see me self!”


I turned so she could get a look at the adult film industries loss. She looked on with her mouth gaped open.


“Whoa, Boy what the hell you do?”


John and I both laughed! Miriam Morales had seen a few really strange things in her life but the look on her face at that moment was priceless. Another text came through.


I took the call.

“Sheba, hi, this is not a good time at all. I’m kinda in the middle of something.”


“Wilt, do you remember the other night when we quarreled?”


Like I said, drama queen, cause we didn’t quarrel we argued but I just listened to what she had to say.


“We argued, not quarreled Sheba. And yes I remember.”


I lied, I was just saying that. I don’t remember that night or at least much of it cause I found a case of beer bottles and a two bottles of Jagermeister. Memories of that evening were foggy at best.


“Wilt, I wanted us to be closer ya know.”


I interrupted.


“You wanted us to be exclusive! That I remember and then got mad cause you wanted to change our relationship. When I wanted to give us a go you wanted your freedom, now you want to be Exclusive after a year of just being bed buddies!”


My tone was cruel but hell I had two watermelon sized Titties that used to be Pecs!


“Motherphuckah!”


She barked! I could hear her voice break a bit. She was getting really upset.

The only wish I could think of at that moment was "Please Lord don't let her tell me she's pregnant cause I don't want to be breast feeding this Baby!"

“We both made a wish!”


“A wish?”


“I wish that you could see what the world looked like from my point of view. And you said you wanted the same thing! Wilt, has anything funny happened to you?”


I am ashamed to say it but I have never listened to Sheba quite the way I was listening then.
“Yeah…..a couple of things have happened.”


“Wilt, I’ll come wherever you are but I need to see you. You need to see me!”


John and Miriam were both glued to my conversation while sipping Chai Tea. I gave John’s address without thinking about it.


“John and Miriam I’m sorry I should have asked before I invited her here!”


John rubbed his beard. ”Wilt after you brought “Them” in here I have got to see what’s next!”


His ebony life mate agreed. It took about a half hour but Sheba drove her Lexus 450 into the backyard. She exited the SUV as if she hadn’t called me sounding hysterical a mere forty-five minutes earlier. Sheba, statuesque, who stood all of 5’11, stopped, stared into her driver’s side mirror, flipped her hair and walked into the rear office. She wore a Plaid or Tater skirt and a cream colored blouse. She strolled with the walk of a queen. I watched from the rear window, the twins, covered by a sweatshirt.



Miriam greeted her as John came out of his office and shook her hand. She looked to me and I knew whatever she had to show me she wanted private but it couldn't’be crazier than what had already happened. I just stood as she walked towards me with all the grace of a hurricane. She stood before me and looked me in the eye. It felt as if she was boring a hole in my soul.
“Wilt, can we go somewhere else?”



“Sheba this is Dr. John Morales, my doctor, and one of my closet friends. It’s ok. Why don’t you sit down, I don’t want you to be too shocked.”


Miriam, right on cue, extended a glass of tea for her. I looked to John who just gave me this look that said, well, let her have it.


I pealed off my sweat shirt and untapped the twins. Sheba’s mouth dropped open and then she like John and Miriam broke into loud laughter! I found myself a little angry cause I was excited to hear what she had to say and here she was laughing at what happened to me. John, standing behind me set his hand on my shoulder. Miriam stood next to her husband as Sheba inhaled a deep breath and lifted her tarter skirt. To say that everyone exhaled loudly at the same moment would be an understatement……But it definitely alters our relationship.


DEFINITELY!

THE BLUE CAFE

Today I decided to walk along the promenade in my beloved East Arts Village neighborhood of Downtown, Long Beach. Here is the World Famous Blue Cafe. It's closed right now due to a flood but it's a great place. I had my 30th birthday party here, listening to BB Chung King, came and participated in the "Best Damn Poetry Slam" every Sunday afternoon and ate great chicken Nachos!

Here's hoping it doesn't close! The Mama's Boys need a good place to play and the promenade would not be the same without the aroma of good food, sounds of good music, the sights of half nekked women and classic cars lining the streets but most of all "Me" just jottin it all down and shooting pics!

So, What happened to The Change?

Ok, so we now know, what we've always known. Obama is not super dude! He can't fix everything in a single stroke of the pen. But that does not absolve you from the responsibility of doing your part. Have you contacted your representative and those who plan on running for office?

If not, why not?

See, Obama is not the only one crying for change! I want and need better health care. I want more money spent on education! I want a large reduction in prison building and upkeep.

Ask yourself. How are we doing in America after building all these prisons? We incarcerate more people than any other country. Has it made us safer. Politicians constantly run on getting tough on crime. Has any and I mean, ANY of the crime measures enacted deterred anyone from crime?

Why are we not asking those questions?

Why are Public Highways being built with Private money for Private contractors? Did the State run out of money? Did the State or the Federal Government forget how to do it? Perhaps it's cheaper this way? Is it?

Why do so many schools in Los Angeles County look like prison yards? The basketball courts and playgrounds are fenced in and on the 2nd level of a former office buildings. Why?

The State of California is in the toilet? Why was Arnold not allowed to fix it? What happened? Is it the way we collect taxes? Warren Buffet seemed to think so. He said we didn't tax homes properly. He paid more in taxes for his home in Nebraska than for his home in Newport Beach.
A Billionaire said that!

So, when our we gonna see some change? When you start making it!

I bear witness, O my God, that Thou hast created me to know Thee and to worship Thee.
I testify, at this moment, to my powerlessness and to Thy might, to my poverty and to Thy wealth.

There is none other God but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

Obama and the Russians: The Snub that Wasn't

I know there are some who may say that this was not a SNUB! But I've watched it and it's a SNUB!

Just a little historical fact...Did you know that during the times when England and Portugal were the main superpowers that the European Heads of States, The Kings did not bow, salute, gift or acknowledge the Afrikan Kings when they would visit?

Fact!

Some traditions are unspoken and unwritten yet they remain.

Mista Jaycee's Top Five Disturbing, Scary Kid Toys!

My Man, Serious Black, from over at the League of Evil Monkeys guested on this post. The idea came about as I was just thinking out loud, (Yes! I think about stuff like this) that a Jack In The Box ain't funnie! You never see a little kid laugh when playing with it! Think......the kid cracks the toy, the Pop Goes the Weasel songs comes on then POP! The Kid jumps back when this look of What the Hell was that? Then he tests it again cause it can't be that scary again......right?



Ish!


So here's our little list of the most disturbing, scary kid toys!


5. Teddy Ruxpin!

Teddy is scary! Go on admit it, you know you want to!



4. Clown Punching Bag!

It glowed in the dark and at night when it sat in the corner it was scary! SCARY Darn it!















3. The Cabbage Patch Kids!


They were full, life like and Ugly! Goodness, were they UGLY! 2. The Ventriloquist Dummy!

Hey! Lucifer threw his voice into a snake! What harm could come of learning to throw your voice and having a carved, wooden, humanoid type object in your home? Remember that episode of the Twilight Zone?


"I would never put you in a Box....." Scary! SCARY! Darn it!


And now the # 1 Scary, most disturbing Kids Toy that's supposed to be FUN!


1. THE JACK IN THE BOX!

Now, let me get this correct........

You buy your lil kid this toy. He or She is what one or two years old and they turn the crank, the cool "POP GOES THE WEASEL" song plays then POW! This hideous, clown thing pops out! That's supposed to be Fun right?

Have you ever actually watched your kid play with it? The kid jumps back and all but screams then he tries this thing again, cause he loves you and his or her one or two year mind can not grasp the thought that you guys don't really love em! So then, they do it again! Something happens and it's STILL NOT FUNNIE! After the 15th try the Kids KNOW IT but they're powerless to stop it cause the JACK IN THE BOX has got em cause of the "POP GOES THE WEASEL SONG!"

This of course is the beginning of your child's mistrust in you, his loss of faith in Humanity and a possible psychosis!

Go on admit it! You know you still flinch whenever you see the Jack in the Box! Sure, you'll crank it but even though you know, what's gonna happen you still flinch! How do you feel about Mom and Dad now? Go onnnnnnn! I'll wait! Admit it! It's okay to cry! As long as you do it in the bathroom, while biting down on a towel with the faucet water running.

Have Fun! Halloween's Coming!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!
