SEX TAPE PART 3! Starring?????????

Regular Readers of A Choice of Weapons know that I was a strong supporter of John Edwards Presidential Campaign. (He was the only one that spoke of helping the poor) I was disappointed when he didn't do well in his campaign. I knew that he was a politician though not a Savior so it wasn't a world changing thang finding out that he cheated on his wife.

But after I asked Folks to raise their hands if they have a sex tape! I hear Johnny Handsome raised his! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

So now I wanna know Who would you NOT want to see in a Sex Tape? Now, Let's be original shall we? DON'T say Flavor Flav! Rush Limbaugh or BeetleJuice!

I vote Condoleeza Rice! Nope! Don't wanna see her!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

The King Is Dead! The King of Pop is Dead!

This is an expanded re-post. I was too shocked to write a post worthy of Michael Jackson. Jaycee

Mrs. Jaycee called me with news that Michael Jackson Died! Michael Jackson? I turned on the news! It's true! WOW!

There will never be another one like Michael! Off The Wall and Thriller! Captain E/O! Damn! To watch Michael Dance!
This morning Dominique Diprima had the Minister Michael Eric Dyson as a guest on the Front Page radio show. Minister Michael reflected on how great Michael was and how he used his talent to effect change. The USA For Africa effort has Michael's hand print all over it. He co-wrote "We are the World" with Lionel Richie and helped to organize the stars that performed it.
That song raised awareness and much needed cash for starving Ethiopians. He went on to mention Ryan White. Ryan was a child stricken with AIDS. During that time people were quarantined and people were afraid to touch someone stricken with the disease. Michael went and visited Ryan when he was at the top of his fame. He talked, played and hugged Ryan.
Michael Jackson was a great businessman, owning at least half of the SONY Catalog. As the stories come out about Mike's spending and his lifestyle. Remember that now the lights gonna shine on alot of people who took advantage of Mike, stole from Mike and that owed Money to Mike. Yeah, The lawsuits will probably go on for years!
The Point is the King of Pop was that for a reason. I'd challenge anyone to prove who sold more records than Mike? Not Elvis! Not the Beatles! There is a whole lot to cover on Michael not just the Child Molestation charges or his Plastic Surgery. By the way he was acquitted of the Child Molestation Charges! Acquitted!
When a Lion Kills even the Jackals eat but when a Lion dies all the Jackals feed.
Rest in Peace Michael!
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!

The Sex tape post is cool. Y'all are a mess! (Laughter) All except RIPPA who is like totally crazie everyday, Thank God! (IAM)

The post was supposed to be called Raise your hands if you DON'T have a Sex Tape but I didn't count on just how many of my loyal readers would share that they have one or in certain cases several. ( I need copies) You can send them to Blankety Blank! Blank! MYWIFEWOULD SEE ME INHELLFIRST.com

But keeping with the SEX TAPE Theme. Let me ask you. What do you do if you in Church and one of the visitors is or used to be a porn star? This includes y'all Ladies too.

Do You :
A. Act like you ain't never seen a porno? What's a Porno?

B. Do you make a special effort to tell him or her about the goodness of the Lord?

C. Tell him or her how good they were in it and how much you enjoyed it?

D. Bow your head in shame, making no eye contact and dab your head with a hankie?

E. Tell a Deacon or The Pastor?

Now be honest cause this is a game. Mylssa Ford walks into First Baptist (I'm Not a Baptist) nice dress, hair and nails done tastefully. How many Women do you know would recognize her then be hatin on her as she walked down the ailse?

How many Brothas do you think would be watching her and knockin over Sistah Do Right to sit next to her?

How many Brothas would get SLAPPED by thier Women cause they were looking at her? Come on some of Y'all girls would have the EVIL side eye on for real.

Tell me I wants to know!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Raise Your hand if you have a SEX TAPE!

Mrs. Jaycee and I were watching the so called News, the other night when the local Anchorman ran the tease.....Is the recession over? What does it mean to you? Dodgers and Angels Battle and Guess who has a Sex Tape? Which quickly prompted a conversation about the so called moral climate we are currently in. But me, being, well, ME! YOU KNOW...........I COULD NOT! I repeat NOT talk about a line like GUESS WHO HAS A SEX TAPE and not just start cracking up! I can just imagine the conversations that such a line who instigate. Here's some of the ones I came up with. Feel free to comment and add your own.

1. " She's a really nice Girl. I told her all about you and she really wants to meet you."

"Oh Yeah, what she look like? "

"Hurump! She's Cute!"

"What you mean CUTE? "

"She's probably a Dawg! She probably a chicken head girl, so flat the state of TEXAS

say DAMN! Girl you FLAT! "

"Sigh! No! She's Cute and she has a really nice body." (No HOMO)

"Yeah? Show me her SEX TAPE! "

More after the Jump!
2. "Girl! I swear I was gonna Kill that Muther*** in Here!"

"What'd he do this time? "

"Caught the SOB looking at this other Bitch SEX TAPE!"

"Girl! Did you throw the Computer out? I would have blinded a Muther*** if I found out


3. "Oh, I can see by your resume that you graduated Summa Cum Laude from Julliard

played Desdemona with the Royal Shakespearean Company and were Jesse Norman's

understudy in Samson and Delilah. Impressive! Lemme See ya SEX TAPE !"

4. "Vocal talent, I understand, but I don't think it's right to audition Girls by watching their


"Look Girl! This is the New Millennium, The Good Rev. Dr. Cheba's had his All Girl Gospel

Choir Singing and Clapping in 6/8 time!"

"So! Lots of Choirs can do that!"

"Yeah, can they do it while making the cheeks clap like Buffy the Body and bangin on

a tambourine?

" You're Kidding!"
"Am NOT! GOD Is my Witness! What? They don't strip no more and they were wearing


Can you just imagine how far this is gonna go? Ray J (No Real Vocal Talent) Kim Kardashian! (What the Hell is she famous for?) Cassie! Rhianna! Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee!

I can only imagine how bad it's gonna get. I can imagine alot! ALOT! So, now I end this post by asking Y'all, Raise your hands if you've got a SEX TAPE!

Happy Fathers Day!

My Father was a shadow! I can remember him until I was about four years old. He'd come to visit me and my Mom. He'd have a Schlitz Tall Boy which he would let me hold and which I would turn up.

Oh, that's cute! (I'm lucky I'm not an alcoholic!)

He stopped coming by to visit sometime after my Lil Brother was born. My Brother and I had a Father but no real Daddy. There is a difference. Any man can be a Father. All that takes is good biological plumbing. But to be a Daddy you have got to be there in the trenches making sure that your kids are fed, safe and hopefully nurtured.
That's a Daddy!

My Father....he had his own demons to fight. He'd come in and out of my life when I was a teenager. When we met again, I was 12 and I remember seeing a White Dude sitting outside an office building wearing a Trucker's cap. My Mom asked me did I see anyone? "No..just some White Dude." When we entered the building though, I saw that the White Dude was just a very light skinned Black Man. I didn't know him and I was checking the door to see when my Father would show up. My Mom asked the Man sitting across from us; "So, how's life?" She then leaned over and whispered "That's your Daddy?"

That my Friends is what I'd clinically call a F- Up! If someone has to lean over to tell your child who they Daddy is.....That means you Eff'd up! Nuff Said!

I learned later that I had two more Brothers and a Sister. I know them and love them now.

I was fortunate to know him as a Man. He struggled with his Demons his whole life. He told me that he loved me and my Brother. He never apologized though for not being there. There was just the here and now.

I've been Blessed cause I had a great Grandpa to emulate. I love and miss him. I have a daughter who I love and a God Daughter as well. I have learned that being a Father and a Dad is not easy. It ain't for Punks! It's work!

My Daughter is tall and beautiful. She's smart but still has so much to learn and so much life to live. She's headstrong and stubborn like her Daddy. She is one of the greatest blessings I have ever received. I thank God (IAM) and my Wife for her. I am soooo Happy to Be a Daddy!
I've learned some things from my Father. He's gone now. In the years that we did speak I could see that he wanted to have a relationship. He reached out! He called on New Years Eve and Christmas. He tried! I wasn't always open to him. Some wounds can't be completely healed. Time just doesn't fix everything. I've never excused him but I have come to understand him and not judge him as harshly. I bet you wonder if I forgave him. For me to answer that would trivialize the matter. It's bigger than that! I called him Dad. He called me Son. That's enough I think. I thank him for what he taught me about Fatherhood.

Happy Father's Day to all the Men who stood up to be counted among the Faithful! Blessings to all those Men who modeled for all the young cats who have no one! Blessings to all the Men who do what a Man is supposed to do! Blessings to the Men who take a child that was not born from their seed and graft them into their family tree anyhow!

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Juneteenth! June 19th, Y'all!

It's June 19th! Juneteenth! Let us give a proper moment of silent reflection.


OK! Moments Over! Now let us Give a few Minutes of Celebration! Go Head Make some Noise!


June 19th is the day Afrikan American Slaves in the State of Texas learned of the Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln. You see the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in September of 1862 but the Slaves in Texas were not freed until June 19th 1865!

I got this courtesy of the State of Texas Library website.

Union Major-General Gordon Granger read General Orders, No.3 to the people of Galveston. It stated
"The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere."

Yeah! Giant Rip I know.....but glass half full! Slaves in Texas were freed! So dig....

Afterwards, every year Afrikan Americans from Texas, Arkansas and all parts commemorate the occasion. Here in Long Beach, California we have a large gathering in Ernest Mcbride Park, complete with food, fun and lots of good music. It's a time for us to reflect, connect and re-connect in some cases.

Happy Juneteenth! June 19th can be and should be celebrated by all Americans! All of us! Slavery was a travesty that affected and poisoned us all! Thank God (IAM) he's still delivering folks from bondage!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!


Power at Last Forever!

When I was a little dude, I can recall seeing this poster announcing a speech by Minister Louis Farrakhan called "Power at Last...Forever!" I've never heard the speech, but I remember the poster vividly. Minister Farrakhan behind a podium, Fist raised and mouth photographed in a shout! That was about 1977. In 1979, Students in Iran, took hostages at the American Embassy demanding the return of the Shah Mohammad Rezā Shāh Pahlavi, Shah of Iran. The Shah, said by some to be a US Puppet, died while being treated for cancer.

The Student Revolt ushered in rule by the Ayatollahs. Iran was transformed from a cosmopolitan country to a theocracy. Why?

Some say the Shah had secret police force that arrested and imprisoned critics crushed opposing views and quelled dissent. Some say? Some say, that the Shah gave too much of Iran's resources (Oil) away for too little to foreign powers. (Europe and America) Some say, that the true will of the people was being denied by outside influences. (America)

So in came the PREACHERS! The Clerics with the will of the People and the blessings of God would create a more equitable society based on time honored, solid religious principles. Iran would be a virtual Heaven on Earth!

"Power at Last...Forever!"

The Shah should have known the power of discontent. He disposed his own Father to come to power. He could not have done that without some serious backing from the people. But he stifled debate, crushed the opposition and one day was done the same.

Now 30 years later, I think it's fair to ask is the will of the people being honored? Did the Clerics indeed create a virtual Heaven on Earth? Did they create a fair, more equitable society ruled by solid, time honored principles? Not according to the Magi's (Zoroastrians) Not, according to the Bahai's! Not according to scientists, Women who were lawyers and Doctors pre-1979! Not according to Muslims who's individual religious rights have been trampled!

If the people say NO! Then can or do they have the power to try something else? Will those once ushered into power by the will of the people relinquish it by the same will of the people?

If they will and do then you may indeed have a fair and more equiable society.

But what if they don't, Mista Jaycee? What if they won't, Mista Jaycee?

History has shown us that Power often, unfortunately, has to be taken! And when the new crowd comes in with the will of the people. Perhaps, they will remember, the Shah's secret police, the 1979 Student Revolt, the rule of the Ayatollahs and realize that No, we can not make Heaven on Earth but we can try to make at least a fair, more equitable society.

Now as we enter the Age of Obama, perhaps the Democrats, should well remember, the election of 1994 that placed the Republicans in power. Don't take the will of the people for granted! If W. Bush had learned the lessons of History, perhaps he, and his party would not have been so wildly reviled. Eh?

Lakers Win Championship! Someone Get a Rock!

The Most Beloved Los Angeles Lakers won thier 15th Championship to become the 2nd most winningest NBA Ball Club. They trail only the Hated Boston Celtics with 17. These Lakers were not World Beaters but it gave me a whole new perspective on Kobe Bryant and his focus. Wow!
That dude is probably the most focus athlete since Jordan!

But within an hour of the victory came the tears. Tell me who said Hey! The Lakers just won the Championship! Get a ROCK! Lets set fire to some ISH!

Then came talk of the Parade! Well, the state is in the pooper right now and The City of Los Angeles can't spare one dollar on a parade! Luckily, Private Donors and the Lakers Organization are footing the bills!

I love the Lakers but you know, I love being able to rib Good Brothas like Revvy Rev more and to all the Denver Nugget fans and Laker Haters.....I'd just like to say.....

Nah! Nah! Just Kidding! Next Year we are gonna have soooooo much fun doing it all over again but next time no fires and no rocks! Dig?

Spiritual Food For Thought!

The Jesus of your spirit is within you:ask his aid, for he is a good helper.

Don't seek from your Jesus the comforts of the body.

Don't ask from your Moses the wish of a Pharaoh.

Don't burden your heart with thoughtsof livelihood; livelihood will not fail.

Be constant in attendance at the Divine court.
Rumi-Translation by Coleman Barks

Lakers Game 3!

I was a bit surprised that the Los Angeles Lakers lost game 3 in such a fashion. Kobe, you can't do everything! You've done a great job being a leader the past two seasons but you can't do everything.

And as far as the rest of the Lake Show.....Kobe can't do everything! You have to step up! If Kobe Thinks that he can do everything, tell him, Mista Jaycee says No! You Can't and we have to step up!

Beyonce! Go To Your Destiny!

Is it just me or are Bee songs sounding the same? They are! She's using the same producers as everyone else. The same retread beats rammed down our throats by corporate radio. She's not stretching her work. Are her videos starting to look just like.....the last......one?

Whew! Thought it was just me.

Bee, listen dear heart. Years ago a reviewer in Murderdog Magazine peeped your first solo joint. I, now quote that reviewer.

"Bee, it's time for you to stop Effing with these Hip Hop Knukkas and go to your destiny! Your Destiny is Patty Labelle, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight! "

In other words, my dear, you have got to go get some real songwriters and some real songs. Your competition is using the same slang, same dance moves, and producers and guess what? They may not be as talented, but they're younger, and there's alot of them. You, unlike some of your competition have Talent! Can't Fake Talent!

Go to your destiny! The alternative is being like Miss Jackson! She should be as big as Madonna. Should be!

But alas....Miss Jackson has been copied, stolen from and the competition were Babies when she assembled her Rhythm Nation. But hey she's a great looking 45 year old! Trying to sound hip for a bunch of 15 and 20 year olds.

Go to Your Destiny!

Don't Let The Republicans in the Senate Con YOU!

I don't know about y'all but I've been listening to some of the updates on the Sotomayor confirmation hearings and I feel that the Repubs are doing their best to con us. That being said, The Democrats are still being spineless wimps cause I don't hear the real questions being asked. Even Worse, The President, Barack "Bam Bam" Obama's nominee is not getting a fair shake.

Let me say this first. W. Bush got two nominees confirmed to the highest court in the land when his approval ratings were at the all time low. The Dems were courteous to that dude. Truthfully he should not have been able to recension a pen with all the B/S that had gone on during his administration.

The Republicans say they are concerned with ACTIVIST JUDGES being appointed to the bench who would legislate from the bench and take away the will of the people. Crock!

Now on the surface, this sounds like a reasonable, concern, right? But if you nominate someone based on their LIBERAL or CONSERVATIVE LEANINGS then isn't that a form of ACTIVISM?

Isn't that an attempt to PUSH the COURT into a PARTICULAR direction? Isn't that an attempt to if not determine an outcome or at least the SCOPE of ruling?

So the ACTIVIST tag is a CROCK! A JUDGES job is to ultimately decide a case. They use the law, listen to the Lawyers (who represent activists) and while they follow the rules set by the congress and the common law They use their own judgement too. Thier own commonsense!

So this Empathy tag......... CROCK!

If a judge is merciful! That's good! Empathy means that she can relate or feel what each or a side might Feel. That's a good thing! We are appointing a Human Being not a Robot! She is not there on the bench now and will not be on the Supreme Court bench as a Robot either. A judges job is not just to be an interpreter of the Law but Justice, Justice and Equality is what a judge is supposed to be about.

Last thing. What's up with the questions of will she use her own point of View? So what if she mentions her Ethnic Background. Hey Congress and Senators! Guess What? There are Lawyers who are Ethnic who have not forgotten being Poor and discriminated against.

I can't believe there are people who can fix they minds to think like this. A Black Cop in plains clothes was shot and killed by a White Cop just last week. What would that Black Cop have said about how the Police treat Black Folks? Would he have said that Cops never Eff with Black Folks? Nah! Why should a Judge not add their experience no matter how different it's been from America's. America's experience has been WHITE MALES ruling! That singular viewpoint has to change!

Kung Fu/Kill Bill TV ICON David Carradine Dead!

I spent most of my childhood watching the Brady Bunch, Saturday Kung Fu Theatre and Kung Fu with David Carradine. David Carradine has been part of my life because of those shows. I admit to watching Death Race 2000. Yes! It's a guilty pleasure, like bacon. Sure, it's bad and no good can come from it, in the long run, but Ohhhhhhh Yes! And Circle of Iron, Yes, I watch it even late nights, very late nights when TBS or some other cable channel is starving for programming.

I liked the Kill Bill movies but those were really all about Uma Thurman so it leaves me with Kung Fu. David was found in a Bangkok hotel room. He apparently decided to leave us much too early.

What do you hear Grasshopper? When you can snatch the pebble from my hand, you are ready to leave! When you can walk across the rice paper without tearing it and leave no trace, you will be ready to leave. Master Po to Young Caine. Kung Fu

Peace David. Sleep well until the last day.

Queen of The Blues Koko Taylor Passes On!

On Sundays, The Walton Family sang Gospel Music together but Monday Through Friday, the Taylor children listened to, and sang the Blues. Cora "Koko" Taylor, aptly named for her love her Chocolate became the Queen of the Blues!
If you a City Kid like me you've probably heard her signature song "Wang Dang Doodle" from those commercials advertising "The Nothing but the Blues" Collection.
Her singing style was pure POWER! Raw, Uncut, Real. She led her band with precision, never wanting to be a great band leader for a "Woman!" She was a great band leader period!
In her lifetime she was awarded every award a Blues Artist can be given. They were well deserved. My condolences to her family. She sleeps until the Lord comes to take her home.

Food For Thought!

Jdg 2:10

After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel.

Can you imagine what Black Folks would be like today if they'd never read The Autobiography of Malcolm X? What about where political groups would be if Dr. Huey Newton had not written his Doctoral Thesis on Political Repression. The War on the Panthers!
Why, We'd Be.....Oh!

Well if we never saw those minstrel shows, those Blaxpotation Movies we might still be coon...in


Well with the advent of You Tube and Affordable Digital Cameras,we can write our own movies, act, film them and distribute them.

Yes! Quality Love stories! Great Mysteries! We won't have to see movies where two guys try to pull off Just ONE BIG DRUG DEAL so they can get the seed money to open their dry cleaning business.... OH!

Well, at least no one would publish themselves acting or appearing undigni----fied! Oh!

Are we that generation mentioned in the Book of Judges or are we raising them?

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!
