Teena Marie Dies at 54! Funk Legend Lady T Passes!

Teena Marie has passed away at press time at her home in Santa Monica.  The Funk Superstar, born Mary Marie Brockert in Santa Monica was 54.  She may have been European American (White) but she belonged to us. Legend has it that Motown Records Executives did not even want to hear that she was a White. They released her record without a photo.  No matter! She had the goods!

She loved Motown Records but successfully sued the label after the label failed to pay royalties and certain standard fees creating the Brockert (Teena Marie Law).  Several artists throughout the years have used the Brockert Law in order to get out of bad contacts. 

The most important thing that she be remembered though is that she could write, play, produce and most of all Sing!  Man, could she ever sing.

Rest in Peace Teena until Jesus comes!

Merry Christmas!

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, I went over to my Great Grandma's house and the rest of the Family would meet there for dinner.  Often times, it was the only time we all got together at once in one place.  Now, that Grandma is gone I realize with crystal clarity that she was the glue that kept us together. Since she passed my Family has scattered to the wind, each Family member, focusing on their own lives.  Although we send each other cards and may even call one another occasionally we have never captured what we took for granted going to Grandma's house every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Over the years I've even noticed that as my friends and acquaintances have become religiously enlightened they've left the traditional Christmas traditions of the having a tree, or state that Yeshua (Jesus) was not born on December 25 (Nimrod's Birthday) or maybe they shun the commercialism of the Holiday and opt for Kwannza instead. All of that is fine but what's truly lost is the sense of Family and community. The sense of connection.

Family, Community and Connectedness is what we have to keep to thrive and survive as a people.  

Make sure that you tell those who matter that you love them and make the effort to spend time with them.

Merry Christmas!

Senate Repeals Don't Ask Don't Tell!

The Lame Duck Senate struck down the discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy! Whoo Whoo! A sensible, grown up policy for well, grown ups! Too bad they waited til they had nothing to lose by doing the right damn thing.

The Seventh Day Adventist Church Pioneer Ellen G. White penned "The greatest want of all the world is Men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall."

We need congress and the senate to do the right thing NOW! Instead what we have is partisan policies. We need to do what is right for the whole country and sometimes that means doing things that we don't agree with. You feel homosexuality is wrong! Fine, but you do not have the right to marginalize, and persecute homosexuals and keep them from what is theirs by right.  You have the right to your opinion and that's all.

Now get to work on Unemployment! Get to work on all these foreclosures! 


Congrats to the Lame D*ck, I mean Duck Senate on screwing on a pair and  doing something. Too bad you left President Obama holding the bag.

Real Initiation!

Repost:


Over the years while working in the Shades of Afrika I have been privileged to stock and read several books on fraternal organizations and secret societies and while I am happy that books like Behold a Pale Horse and The Unseen Hand have a large and growing audience, I also see tomes like Duncan's Ritual and Lost Keys to Freemasonry fly off the shelves too.

The problem is most folks who read these books have no idea what they are actually reading. They have none of the prerequisites in order to understand the subject matter. Reading Duncan's Ritual to a non mason would be like taking inorganic chemistry when one hasn't taken Biology 101 or better yet has only taken Bio 101. OK, save your money.
There ain't nothing in there that you gonna find out!

Just a little background to straighten out a couple of things flowing thorough the Hip-Hop Community. Lost Keys of Freemasonry was written by Manly P. Hall when he wasn't a Mason. He wrote it when he was like 19 years old and didn't have any first hand knowledge. It was written in the sensationalized dime store pocketbook style popular at the time which had helped books like Secret Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, which sells to this day in some corners and is complete crap! become great sellers! It was tripe! And it fueled the anti-masonic sentiment of the times. He hypocritically became a Mason in his later life thirty years later but never denounced the book to my knowledge. But he sure took the money!

Albert Pike was a Freemason and his Morals and Dogma is the text most people cite when denouncing Masonry and fraternal organizations but again it is as his book said It was written for the Southern Scottish Rite. He was a confederate, a southerner, so it's no surprise that he said " I took my Oath before White Men, and while I see no problem with Negroes being masons if I had to choose masonry or have it brought down to their (negroes) level by mixing with the main I would leave Masonry"
The overall Masonic Fraternity promotes Universal Brotherhood. Albert Pike at least had some integrity when he stated he didn't speak for Masonry, he spoke for himself and wrote specifically for the Southern Rite. He was still a weenie though! So this should be kept in mind when discussions are held concerning fraternal organizations.

I read a book called " Gleanings of a Mystic" by Max Heidel, a Rosicrucian from Austria, who came to California in the 1920's. I disregard most of his ideas as he held in this writers opinion some questionable racial and cultural views, it fact it is my opinion that he held several racist and anti semitic views but his chapters on Initiation what it is and what it isn't are worth the coin I spent.

Mr. Heidel taught that there is external initiation and internal initiation. External is the ceremony, the pomp, the oaths, the rituals, the membership cards and regalia and don't forget the super secret decoder ring and hat! Just kidding! Maybe! This is easy to see.

And secondly, the internal initiation, which is inward and not easy to see. Here is an example. Take a bite out of an apple, now chew it slowly, slower, slower. Now tell me how it tastes, it's smell, is it soft or hard? Tell me!

Ok, you described it but do I know what the apple tastes like? No, I won't know what that apple tastes like even if you gave me a piece. It's gonna taste different for me but still in order to know any apple's taste you gotta try it for yourself! Only you would know when you understood the internal, Maybe....

Now, I am not a member of a lodge, but I know several members of several different lodges, Masons, AMORC, Elks and Kiwanis and what they share is essentially the same feeling on initiation. You gotta try it for yourself! Why am I writing on this? Because I saw this short video on You Tube, where this dude was trying to point out Kanye West and Jay-Z as Masons. They were supposedly giving a masonic handshake and the videographer just knew he hit on some esoteric gem! Fact! Anyone can do a Masonic handshake and may have learned it somewhere but it don't mean they Masons!
As I said in past posts you gotta check these people out! You can check to see if a person is a member and if thier in good standing in most organizations including Masonry. In fact if you look on their resumes you may see it.

It's become real popular in hip-hop circles and music to speak on metaphysics, Al-Islam and Esoteric subjects such as masonry but most of the time no one is actually speaking on anything of real substance. The rhymes are just peppered with code words to make it seem as if they know something but again, you gotta ask somebody who knows. If you want to know about wood ya go to a carpenter, dig!

The So-called Dr. Dwight Malachi York and others like him have made a living for years taking advantage of people's lack of knowledge and selling them counterfit versions. The So called Dr. York has been a Moor, a Muslim, ( He differentiated) a Mason, a Shriner, opened a Grand Lodge in Georgia, that had armed guards at the doors. ( That would not happen in a proper masonic lodge, Guns at the doors!) He claimed some Extraterrestrial Theta type thing recently that sounds like he was trying to make a rival Scientology type group and keep making money selling books and incenses all over the Hip-Hop and Afrikan American community on all these subjects. I would suggest you go to the Phylaxis Society's page on Bogus Masonry and check the interview E. Malik Bey, a moor, a Muslim and a Prince Hall mason did with the So Called Dr. York. It's a dooosey!

Facts, about Masonry! It is not secret it is private! Any man, 18 years of age, and of good moral character can apply for membership. Their rituals and ceremonies are not for public knowledge just to members. It's the same for any organization. The Deacon board at your church don't discuss everything in front of the congregation, and major corporations keep their shareholders meeting private including membership unless it is illegal according to its by-laws. That's not proper! Some things will only be discussed in private.

Look into a Blue lodge and ask questions and find out about procedure. You must first join a blue lodge and master the first three degrees. After one is a master mason (3rd degree) You needn't go any further but if you still wish to learn more then you can go up the York and Scottish Rite houses. You may do both, just one side or none beyond the blue lodge. Don't get hustled you must go to the blue lodge anyone bypassing that ain't proper. Dig!

It is up to you to ask questions for yourself instead of this crazy speculation. Hip-Hop is full of charlatans just waiting to sell a book, or take your money some other kind of way. The web is full of sites dedicated to exposing the secrets of this or that. But what secrets? You mean things that you could find out simply by getting a book from the local chain store? That ain't secret and even if you memorize it you don't understand it. As soon as someone who belongs asks enough of the right questions, the ruse is over.
Remember there are alot of shirks out there, talking like they know something about something but when you shine the light on them, find out they talking out they other end.
Now just think about these things for a second. You saw National Treasure, Raiders of the Lost Ark or read about America's Founding Fathers or Adam Wieshaupt and believe in this Grand Conspiracy theory. Well maybe there is but most people including those who may have memberships in organizations are not involved and in fact wouldn't know it if it kiss them on the lips. You mean to tell me that your drunk azz uncle who drives a truck for the city and still owes you five dollars is a part of some super secret plot? Come on, ya know better than that!
Ya Grandma, eighty years old, who still insists that you be in Church every weekend, is plotting a world overthrow with all the other old ladies at the Eastern Star meetings? Come on! Ya know better!
But if you do see something that bothers you spiritually or outright offends your religious spider sense then choose God and get the heck out! Don't fool with it and that goes for anything and everything that you find like that. Dig!
I am not endorsing or encouraging membership in any organization. That's your own choice! Make your own choice! Now if you are not a joiner that's cool too but A Choice of Weapons wants you to be informed no matter what with good reliable information and a solid argument.

World Aids Day


Can any one of us say that they have not been touched or affected by the HIV virus and the AIDS disease? Maybe, you lost a relative or friend.  Maybe, someone you care for is suffering with the HIV infection.

Can you imagine being diagnosed with the HIV virus and then going through life waiting for the virus to become the AIDS disease? How would that reality change your outlook on relationships?


Do you realize that there are three or four generations of people who have never enjoyed "Casual Sex"? (There's no such thing) Their whole adolescent life has been spent knowing that a one night stand could be deadly. They've never had sex without a condom! Even though who do have unprotected sex much have had a conversation about their sexual history and their sexual partners.

Goodness! 

Have you ever taken a survey about your sexual history to determine if you are at risk? I have.  It wasn't pleasant. It really doesn't matter how you answer. It really doesn't!

Q: Have you had sex?  Sex is defined as Physical intercourse with a partner (this includes oral)


Q: Have you ever been incarcerated? This includes county jail.


Q: Have you gotten a tattoo? 


Q: Have you received a blood transfusion? 


Q: Have you ever had anal sex?


Q: Have you engaged in an sex act with multiple partners? Did you use a condom? Did you use a condom each time?


Q: Have you ever had a homosexual relationship or encounter?  Did you use a condom?  Did you use any protection if you gave or received oral sex?

Remember, you are in a clinic or in a doctors office and your naked!

That's just some of the questions that are asked.  Fun! Loads of Fun! And just to add the whipped cream to it this poop sundae....

The Church calls it a plague. Accuses you of immorality if you are infected.

Dating conversation includes questions of do you lick, suck, bend, take it, or swallow before you met them? Appearances do not matter. The innocent looking nerdy girl could be infected. The nerdy microsoft dude could be infected.
Good Morals do not save you! Monogamy will not save you! Ask the faithful who are now infected! All that stands between us... is a piece of Latex! You can ask all the right questions but still...LATEX! Get Tested! Insist that your partner get tested. Go with each other! 
Damn it! Use condoms! Ladies keep some! Men, need to have them! And we need to talk with one another and ask the real questions.  Afraid? Don't be! BE Cautious!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Conscious!

Hey Y'all,
I hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and that you were able to spend time with your Family.

"We Don't Celebrate Thanksgiving Mista Jaycee!"

Oh, Sorry, Y'all Jehovah's Witnesses?

"No! We don't celebrate the wholesale slaughter of the Native American Population!

????????? WTH?????!!!!!!!!

Mutha----! No one commerates the Wholesale Slaughter of a whole group of People! NO ONE! Thanksgiving, like Christmas, Labor Day, and Presidents Day is a DAY OFF OF WORK WITH PAY!
So, of course you DONATE all your earnings from those days right?

"Huh?"

Huh? I am asking you Do you donate your earnings from those days to charities that benefit Native Americans, for example?

......

I'll wait! So, let me get this correct. You will accept the day off. You will take the money that's offered to you, if you recieve a paid holiday. You will accept a gift certificate for a Turkey or THE TURKEY from your job on Thanksgiving or insert Holiday here right? Isn't that hypocritical? Of course it is.

On Thanksgiving, you can spend the days off with your Family.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are two days that Your whole Family can get together at once. People travel across states to get together.  You don't do that???? You don't spend the day watching football right?  You fast longer than the time to cook the bird right?

So you fast and pray and of course you go out and visit Native American Reservations right on the so called Thankgiving Holiday right?

"Does a Casino count?"

Let me check....NO!

So, now we both see that while your intent is admirable it's misguided and therefore BULLSHIT!

"Why Mista Jaycee?"

It's great that Black Folks and Euro-American Folks have gotten conscious of what happened to the Native Americans! Great! It's a good thing that we no longer subscribe to the WHOLE PILGRIM STORY with all the NOBLE Intentions cause we know what Really happened.  We all know that Columbus was one of the first in a long line of evil genocidal maniacs.

But BEING Conscious is a waste if it does not spur you to ACTION!   It just makes you SELF RIGHTEOUS and an A**Hole!

I talked with several people that considered themselves to BE CONSCIOUS that I wished good tidings to only to be rebuffed, scolded, counseled and rebuked. Tired and fed up with the posturing I issued a challenge to the SO Called Conscious Community that I will now extend to this medium as well.

PUT UP OR SHUT KNUCKKAS!

Here is the challenge: Donate $25 or more to a Historically Black College or University, Divine Nine Plus 1 Organization, Prince Hall, Order of Eastern Star Organization or NAACP for Youth Scholarships.

Don't just read all the CONSCIOUS BOOKS, Wear Afrikan Garb, Change Your Diet, Change Your Hair and adopt all the POLITICALLY CORRECT CONSCIOUS OPINIONS and then put NO ACTION Behind it!

We do not need another rally of ANGRY PROTESTING Knuckas! We need Conscious Black Folks to BE Motivated to donate  their TIME, ENERGY, KNOWLEDGE and MONEY to REAL LIBERATION EFFORTS! Without effort, time and money your CONSCIOUSNESS is just a fad!

Yeah, a fad just like those Afrikan, Red, Green, and Yellow Leather Medallions from the 90's and it will go away like the Hightop fade!

We do not need another rally of ANGRY PROTESTING Knuckas!

Forget Marching! Forget Speeches! Don't call Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton!  What's needed is more ELIJAH MUHAMMED, MARCUS GARVEY, FATHER DIVINE, ECONOMIC DO FOR SELF EFFORTS! Money Brothers and Sisters! MONEY, TIME, KNOWLEDGE!

Put Up or Shut UP!

For Brothers who have considered Homocide when the BS Got too Much!

Sistahs are doin it for themselves/Sistahs are writing their stories/Filming their movies/having conversations about ...Brothas! Ya guess that huh? Sistahs are talking about Brothas! How we can't fuck!/How we can't bring home the bacon/leave them high and dry with babies/String them along with promises of marriage and happily ever after scented maybe's Sistahs are angry! Sistahs are ANGRY! Sistahs are ANGRY AT WHAT BROTHA'S they say Brothas are puttin them through... 

Well Sistah, guess what! While you was ANGRY at ME! Guess What?  I was ANGRY WITH YOU! 
Brotha Sings the Blues Written by Mista Jaycee the Poet 1997


Yesterday, I visited one of my favorite blogs "Black Conscious Thought" written by Von.  Von, can best be described as Dr. Angela Davis, channeling Eldridge Cleaver but filtered sometimes through Terry Mcmillian and Alice Walker.  She re-touched on a post that she'd written earlier but that stirred up alot of controversy.

Here's the link:  http://blackconsciousthought.blogspot.com/2010/11/for-my-critics-if-you-have-better.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Blackconsciousthought+%28Von%27s+Black+Consciousness%29


Basically, she broke down the statistics of Black Male/Female relationships in real numbers.  Now at first I read it like I would any academic work but about midway through Von hit up a series of hot words that succeeded in pushing me over to the dark side.  Now, read the article for yourself. Read it! Von stated that Sistahs were on their own. They could not count on anyone least of all Black Men.  The heaviest straw was her quote that "So called Good Black Men could not be trusted either, after all where were they when Black Men were beating Sistahs into submission? " Good Black Men! Fuck them! Sisters were on their own.

I quoted her stats and responded in kind "Fuck You!" Yeah, I went there! I went to the dark side. Why?
The Color Purple, Waiting to exhale, Diary of a Mad Black Woman and For  Colored Girls not to mention every Keshia Cole, Fantasia, Mary J, Sunshine Anderson cut that ever got played.  I'm am sick and tired of hearing how the Sisters is mad at Brothers and seeing it reflected in the mass media.

Sorry Sistahs, not to discount your anger but let's face it. There was a Brother or several Brothers that warned you against taking up with certain other Brothers.  It's true ain't it?!! And you dated him anyway, you fucked him and in the aftermath you moved on to the next Brother until now you are embittered and angry.

Why didn't you listen to those "Good Black Men" then?  Was it cause you had a few of them in the friend zone and felt that "They" just wanted to poison your mind against the "Bad Bro"?  Come on BE honest.
Maybe it was because the "Bad Bro" had money, a nice car, had mad game, or was just devilishly handsome.  And yeah, you fucked him and it was good til you found out what the "Good Bros" had been telling you like maybe "Bad Bro" ain't faithful and ain't gon be faithful.  You not the only one, you ain't even number one among all the other ones.  Am I hitting a nerve?

"We don't date the Bad Boy cause we want the "Bad Boy" or to hurt you we date the "Bad Boy cause it's the Mother in us trying to save em."  Spiffy the Poetess

I've been that good Black Man.  I've gotten into shit behind a Sistah.  I've been in the friend zone while some undeserving letch of a Brother constantly managed to worm they way back into your bed.  You took his seed inside you and bore his fruits and now you mad cause you gardening alone.  Wasn't he the Alpha Male of the pack? The Strongest, the Tallest, The finest? YOU chose him Sistah! That was your fault and on behalf of all the Brothers would caught a case behind defending you or got beat down for your sakes I say Enuff!

Now, we got movie after movie of all these broken, bitter sistahs and these cardboard cut outs of weak men! No more! There are too many God (IAM) fearing men we constantly pick up the pieces of broken, bitter sisters that Don't see them and constantly look right passed them. 

Brothers and Sisters need to talk to one another in a very real way.  Let me start by saying that some Sistahs priorities are wrong and need to be changed.  You pick these men. You raised these Men.  Hint: What you say to your Sisters about His Daddy and to him is heard and overheard.  You created these Monsters Sisters! How many of you turned away the Father from interacting with the child and how many more Good Men who were not biological Fathers did you turn away? 

Well, enough ranting! Let's talk!

Mehserle Sentenced


Oscar Grant's Killer Former BART Police Officer Johannes Mehserle recieved the MINIMUM sentence for INVOLUTARY MANSLAUGHTER of two years. To say that A Choice of Weapons believes this to be another travesty of Justice is an understatement.
Mehserle stated that he did not mean to pull his handweapon only that he meant to pull his taser gun instead.

1. Oscar Grant Jr. was lying face down on a train platform begging "Please don't tase me!"

2. Oscar Grant Jr. was unarmed

3. Former Officer Mehserle only meant to tase an unarmed Man who was lying face down on a platform but instead mistakenly fired a 40. caliber hand weapon into his back killing him.

4. Countless Witnesses taped the incident on thier camera phones!

MURDER is what he should have been charged with. MURDER is what he should have been convicted of. HE Should be in jail for a Hell of a lot Longer than 2 years for MURDER!

Democrats Lose House Majority!

As expected the Democrats have lost control of the House of Representatives. Some so called media outlets have painted the Republican house victories as a Referendum on President Barack Obama. This could not be further from the truth.

When President Obama was elected congress's approval rating was at 20%. What has congress done since then to change it? Nothing! Outgoing President George W. Bush's approval rating was at a historical presidential low and congress's was right along with him.

America's Financial system failed! The Chicken's came home to roost! So you have a voting public that has lost jobs, lost fortunes, lost houses and they are angry about it. Even more so they are angry about the solutions to the problems as well.

In come the Tea baggers led by Sarah Palin. Gonna set this country back on it's footing right? Gonna show "Washington" that regular American Folks aren't gonna take this lying down! So, it gave the Republican party a chance to gain a few seats the Dems were gonna lose anyway! The People already hated the folks in Congress! Hated! The people want ACTION!

Now, Action can be defined two ways. 1. They want shit fixed now! 2. They want Congress and the President to look like they working on getting shit fixed now! Number 1 ain't gonna happen no time soon no matter who's in office but number 2 should have happened and Congress didn't do that.

Mr. President, these are unprecedented times. Now is NOT the time to be a good President, or do regular Presidential shit. NOPE!

Now's the time to do some Creative, Unorthodox shit! You may have to pull out some of FDR's handbooks and use them to get the country moving again.

What about the Newly elected, Emboldened Republicans who will do everything in their power to stop that? Eff Em! You hear me! Eff them! Before you took office, you had meeting with all those Bastards, reaching out to them when your party had POWER and didn't have to. You were Civil, you were Listening. They called YOU a LIAR! They disrespected YOU, the President of the United States. They disrespected the Office of the United States and You did a PUNK move.

You didn't have those bastards arrested, you didn't have them audited, you let them get away unpunished. Now, Mr. Obama is the time to play dirty.

"I hope you fail!" Rush Limbaugh

"Liar" Joe Wilson

You ushered in Financial Banking Reform. They spit on you! You got a Health Care Bill passed! They mock you and curse your name! And get this. They have no intention of working with you. They have every intention of making your life HELL while you are in office.

Make sure at every turn you point it out to the American Public that THEY are the ones who are holding the Country Hostage! Give Specific Names! Flood they Office Lines! Demand Audits of some of their PET Projects! DO SOMETHING! You can start by NOT being so Damn Agreeable, So Damn Civil, So Damn Forgiving!

You are doing it cause WE ELECTED YOU TO DO JUST THAT! The Republicans feel the People elected them to do what they are planning on doing, throw Monkey Wrenches in your machinery. Remind them that YOU WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT by the PEOPLE! Over 50% of the PEOPLE!

NOTICE TO ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS! WE WILL Call you, fax you, email you and flood your offices with so many letters that you can't leave the Capitol! That's for starters. You don't need to talk about working with the PRESIDENT. You need to really work with the PRESIDENT!

PS. We are STILL ANGRY! DON'T Make us Come down there! Eff Around and make us Run up our Light bill!

Mista Jaycee is NOT Clownophophic!

Anyone who has read my blog knows of my disdain for clowns.  They are scary, creepy and wrong! That said, A Children's Entertainment Professional has taken issue yet again with me over my outspokenness towards clowns.



I find this hilarious because they commented on the Letter and my Response from Albert T. Clown. Al called me a CLOWNOPHOPE! I am NOT Afraid of CLOWNS! I JUST don't like em or think that they are funny!




Clowns are EVIL! I would like to extend my thanks to all the great artists and photographers from Deviant Art who allowed me use these renderings of Clowns! Ewwww! Take a look at them and ask yourself why would anyone think that CLOWNS are scary? Go Figure! A Clownophobe? No, I just got good sense.

Federal Judge Ends Don't Ask...Don't Tell!

A Federal Judge ended the United States Mililtary's 17 year "Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy prohibiting those enlisted from asking an ensigns sexual preference and an from one's announcing one's sexual preference.

Good!

The policy was a piece of garbage anyway! It was built from an unproven, irrational hetrosexual fear! The fear that somehow an OPENLY GAY Enlisted person would undermine troop morale.

Reality Check!

I work for a living and some of the folks that I work with, go to church with, shop with and live next to are guess what.....????? There has never been any study to verify that an openly gay soldier or group of soldiers undermined morale in any quantifiable way. Sure, Hetrosexual Men have always had a FEAR of OPENLY Gay Soldiers looking at their winkies or maybe a game of slap and tickle or some such nonsense.

Gay Soldiers have always served and they should continue.

I live with it! Most ADULTS live with it just fine.  I'm sorry but if I'm about to get my behind shot off in Kabal by the enemy the only thing I wanna know is if the soldier next to me is gonna do they job?  Can I count on you in battle?

Congratulations America on growing up! Gay Enlisted Personell should have the right to live in the open, go out on dates, get married without having to hush up about it all the darn time! That ain't fair and it ain't right! Congrats LGBT Soldiers! Now, remember to be smart and fair to us Hetrosexuals. Use good sense and good taste!

Vote Folks! The Calvery Ain't Coming


I am sick of all these Effin Election ads! News Flash for the Republican Meg Whitman supporters she ain't gonna change California! News Flash for Democratic Jerry Brown Supporters...Unless Jerry can change some things like the Property Tax code in California he ain't gon be able to do ish either!

Remember, Arnold Swartzenegger was gon go all TERMINATOR on California Politics and FIX California? Too Bad he couldn't get passed his OWN Parties Opposition! See folks, in California you have a to have a 2/3rds Majority to pass a budget.  This allows a MINORITY Party like the REPUBLICANS to CREATE GRIDLOCK! 

Swartzenegger found out how hard it was real quick! He ended up doing everything that former Governor Gray Davis wanted to do but couldn't! California's credit status is in the toilet! State employees are being furloughed at least three days a month. Social programs are being scaled down or cut! Educational spending is being cut! Class sizes are increasing!

Billionaire Warren Buffett warned Swartzenegger when he took office that he would have to fix Prop 13. Buffett paid less in property taxes on his Newport Beach, California home than the one he had in Wyoming!

Hey California Property Owners! Prop 13 is NOT Sacrosanct! It was voted in in 1978! Jimmy Carter was still president! Jerry Brown was THE Governor then and he said it was a rip off! It took monies out of the hands of the cities and now the cities have to go crawling to Sacramento and have it doled back to them!

But I digress.....

How is Meg Whitman gonna fix California dealing with a political environment that was hard for Dukemajaian, Wilson, Davis and Swartzenegger?  How are you gonna fix California?  Gonna raise Tuition again?  That's a TAX on the Students! Maybe you gonna cut down the pensions on State Workers? Sounds good! The California Prison Guards Union is the most powerful UNION in the state. Go for it!

See all i hear from the Republicans is the Same Bullshit they always preach! LOW TAXES, LESS GOVERNMENT, PRO BUSINESS!

Never mind the FACTS that BUSINESS has BETRAYED THE PEOPLE! California gave BUSINESS Tax Breaks and they moved to MEXICO! So Eff Business!

Never mind the FACTS that LOW TAXES are the PROBLEM! See, EVERYONE is NOT being TAXED Fairly! So there is no money in coffers to DO anything!

Never mind the FACTS that LESS GOVERNMENT is what got California and AMERICA in this mess. IT was LESS GOVERNMENT enforcement of the Tax codes, The banking industry, the Credit Card companies, the Real Estate Industry, The Food and Drug Administration, Wall Street. It was hands off on all of those entities and THEY RAN WILD and RAN THE COUNTRY INTO THE GROUND!

Don't FORGET THAT!

GO OUT VOTE! YOU ANGRY?  GOOD! GO OUT AND VOTE! YOU LOSING YOUR HOUSE! GO OUT AND VOTE! Take time off from one of those TWO MINIMUM WAGE Jobs if you have one and GO VOTE!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

The Republicans are Responsible!

Hey Angry Electorate!

So, you've lost your home! Your 401 K is used up! Your Job has gone overseas! You've recently coughed up a red liquid like substance and the Co pay from your insurance is really expensive!

Need someone to blame? 

Yeah! Yeah!

It ain't OBAMA! NO BAMA! It Ain't OBAMA!

Is it the MEXICANS Mista Jaycee?

Nope!

The Republicans are Responsible!

Well, Mista Jaycee We Elected that Black Fella and the Country is still doing poorly! He's been in Office for what TWO Years and we want to see some results!

The Republicans are Responsible!

Mad at Congress? THE TEA PARTY is NOT the SOLUTION!  SARAH PALIN has never been and will never be the SOLUTION to solving Washington's problem unless it's to make it worse. Now, go back to pleasuring yourself with her pictures Bama! It's ok.  I won't tell anyone!

The Republicans are Responsible!

The same Bastards that got you in this mess are NOT gonna get you out of it! If you are not going to vote DEMOCRAT then VOTE GREEN, PEACE and FREEDOM or LIBERTARIAN but DO NOT VOTE TEA PARTY or REPUBLICAN!

Why?

The Republicans are Responsible! The Republicans are Responsible!

The Republicans are Responsible! The Republicans are Responsible!

DEREGULATION is the Blame!

My Foil Brother Logical says it WRONG for me to place the blame squarely on the backs of ONE Party!

Maybe! Maybe it is UNFAIR! But so what! Brother Logical is not incorrect in saying that the TWO are to blame.

True!

Both groups are bottom feeders and deserved to be expelled from EARTH! However, Since no other intergalactic planet or planetoids will have them all we can do is Kick em out of Congress!

The Republicans are Responsible!

Why? Cause "Bam Bam" that's what I call President Obama, reached out to all those bastards when he took office and they spit on him and threw rocks!

"I hope you Fail!"  Rush Limbaugh


"Obama is a Muslim!" The Right Wing


"Obama is a Socialist!" The Right Wing

"Obama is NOT a Legal Citizen of this country" The Birthers Movement

Yet, President Obama has not slandered or demeaned anyone! He's reached out when he didn't have to.  Past President George Walker Bush never reached out to the Dems when his party held the Presidency, Senate and the House! He pushed his agenda no matter how extreme it might have been.

That's why The Republicans are Responsible!

What American needs are Statesmen! A Statesmen looks out for the benefits of the people. All the People not the needs of the PARTY! None of these people have done that and none are doing that now.

The REPUBLICANS ARE THE ONE'S RESPONSIBLE!

If the Republicans get back into real power what will they do for you? Will they help people who's houses have been foreclosed on get back into their homes?  Will they rebuild the manufacturing sector of America? Will they create jobs or start training programs that help people get jobs that pay more than the minimum wage?  Will they help with the rising costs of health care and tuition?

The REPUBLICANS ARE THE ONE'S MOST RESPONSIBLE!




So the Republicans lowering taxes even further on the Highest Wage earners is gonna help YOU (not one of the Highest) get in a better state? 

Well, maybe you read me for fun and really care about Business.  Will the Republicans make sure that sewage and pollution is lowered? You know if they are allowed to build a factory for instance, will it pollute the area it's in so bad that the land is not usable again?  Of course the Republicans are known for being concerned with folks drinking water right? 

Of course the Republicans will make sure that once businesses get those tax breaks that they stay in AMERICA and create jobs in AMERICA right?  They won't just lay off even more people and pocket the savings right? 

WRONG! And you know it! They've never done that! They've never looked out for anyone other than the HIGHEST WAGE EARNING BUSINESS OWNER CONTRIBUTORS TO THEIR PARTY and they ain't gonna start now! That's why you elected the BLACK DUDE!

Now, Get behind the Black Dude (President Obama) and make sure that his agenda is carried out! And in two or six years if it still sux or sucks worse then throw President OBAMA out but YOU MUST GIVE him a FAIR CHANCE! 

It took 20 Years or Longer for all this to fall apart and YOU Can't Expect one dude to fix it in 2 years!

The Whispers - Rock Steady Official Video


Years ago, I was a partner at a small record label handling promotions and distribution. It was then that I met Sound of Los Angeles Records Chief Dick Griffey (He had a really raspy voice) and his second in command Virgil Roberts. While the meeting did not lead to a successful partnership it left a lasting impression on me. For one, Mr. Roberts stopped me in the middle of my proposal and asked how long I had left til I got my college degree. I answered, a year and a half at least. He stopped me several times advising me to GET THE DEGREE!
Dick Griffey was the Real Deal! A Real Record Industry Player! A Real Independent, Self Made Mogul.

At the time of our meeting, he was taking the SOLAR Record Label and converting it into the J.Hines Record Distribution Company. Berry Gordy of Motown Records always struggled in the long term because he didn't control the manufacturing or distribution of his labels records. It was litchpin that eventually proved to be part of Motown's undoing.

Game peeped Game!

Dick Griffey, a Night Club Booking Agent along with fellow Pioneer Don Cornelius started Soul Train Records in 1976. Like Soul Train it was independent but Don Cornelius and Dick did not stay in the Record Label business together. They made a cool split and Dick started SOLAR Records. (THE SOUND OF LOS ANGELES) Dick had a serious eye for talent! He took two Soul Train dancers Jeffrey Daniels ( Pop Lock Dance Pioneer and He showed Micheal Jackson the Back Slide or Moonwalk) and Jody Watley and created Shalamar! This group had hits with two lead singers before settling down and gelling with Howard Hewitt. Just think what if Don had hated on Dick saying You can't use my dancers? We would have missed out on somthing great! But these Brothers were cool!

He took a young Pre-Baby Face guitarist named Kenny Edmonds out of a Funk Band called THE DEELE and made him a Solo Artist! After Bootsy Collins dubbed Kenny "Babyface" then Kenny and LA Reid lit out for Atlanta and started LAFACE Records! They produced Whitney, Usher and TLC. ( You might have heard of them)
He was responsible for ushering in many a Pre-Luther Vandross Baby Making period with hits from the Whispers and Midnight Star. He shook the fat off of many a booty with Lakeside, and gave the Women Everywhere the FIRST ALL GIRL FUNK BAND in Klymaxx!

He gave Leon Sylvers III his shot! In return, Leon wrote and produced hits for SOLAR all through the 1980's. Dick Griffey was so bad that he gave Two Young Prince Proteges a chance to produce records. You may know them as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. I think they went on to work with some chick name of JANET Jackson!

Now back to my meeting with Dick Griffey. I met with him for only about 15 minutes with the other partners from the label but I can recall reading an article in the now defunct New Times about how Dick Griffey and Virgil Roberts were being sued by Eric Easy E Wright and brought up on RICO Charges for allegedly helping a up and coming Mogul by the name of Marion "SUGE" Knight get Dr. Dre, the DOC, Michelle and a few others released from their contracts with Ruthless Records and providing some the start up capital for Future Shock Records Better known as Death Row Records. Of course, Suge ruled the nineties with an Iron Fist, oops, I mean HITS!
Of course, it was never proven that Dick Griffey and Virgil Roberts were part of any conspiracy to coerce Eric Wright into releasing Dr. Dre and neither Messrs. Griffey or Roberts were never convicted of Racketeering. (that would make them gangsters) Of course some or all of it may be urban legend. Needless to say I went into my meeting though with both eyes open and a firm grip on the door handle. Just in case (Wink)

Well, our label wanted a press and distribution deal. In other words, we just wanted the manufacturing side of J. Hines (Solar) and for them to place our records in the stores alongside their other products. One thing that any aspiring recording artist should know is that Product Placement is super important!
Dick Griffey had 30 Plus years to learn and build relationships with the record stores, radio and promoters. NO Matter How HOT Your Artist's RECORD IS IT MEANS NOTHING IF YOU CAN'T GET IT PLAYED, PROMOTED and PLACED IN A GOOD SPOT IN THE RIGHT STORES TO BE SOLD! Dick Griffey understood that better than most Record Execs ever will and he did something about it.

Recently, the Mogul succumbed to complications following heart surgery. He leaves behind his Wife, Children, Grand Children and numerous Brothers and Sisters that loved, admired and respected him.

God Bless! Rest in Peace until The Lord Returns for you!

Review: Undercovers

NBC's Undercovers starring Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw
I watched Undercovers last night. Two Black leads on a major network in an action/drama. Historic! We haven't seen a Black lead performing in this kind of role since Dr. Bill Cosby was on I Spy in the 1960's!
Yeah, it's been that long!

Now, I get that the show can be compared to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith."  They are similar.  Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw play a married couple who are "Retired" CIA field agents. They own a struggling restaurant and are both called back to active duty to complete one mission.

Now, the show is produced by JJ Abrams, cool! The show has car chases, stuff blowing up, exotic locations, some light comedy relief and most importantly two very good actors who also happen to the very definition of Eye Candy!

Problem! For Boris Kodjoe, that's the problem with Undercovers! Style over substance! Years ago, he was casted alongside his real life wife "Nicole Parker" in 2005's UPN produced "The Second Time Around." That show suffered cause it had NO PLOT, NO SCRIPT! But damn, those Black People were Pretty! Nicole Ari Parker, Melissa Desousas, Danielle Nicolet! All EYE CANDY! No substance, no plot, weak, wooden characters! This show suffers from the same thing.

If a Black Couple were as purdie as these two and owned a restaurant they would be a very PUBLIC couple. They would be featured in UPTOWN magazine, on the cover of VIBE, they'd be at parties with Russell Simmons.  Chef G. Garvin and The Neely's would do interviews with them and they'd schmooze! A moderately successful Black couple like that could be considered a POWER Couple in the Black community

They'd be on the cover and sooner or later some Baddie from the past would eliminate them! For any story to work it has to be plausible.  Both Black Folks are wearing coveralls in an Madrid Bank working on the Security Systems? In Madrid? The idea that Black folks are CIA operatives is not unbelievable just ask any Afrikan American political group. 

By the way, group of possibly White American Writers, Black Folks who work for THE FBI, CIA and Various Police departments or belong to the Republican party, for example,  are not looked at favorably by a large majority of Black Folks!

Our (Afrikan American) views of Patriotism for America is different than our Euro-American Brothers and Sisters.  But all that aside, You want ME to believe that Gugu Raw is a CONTRACT KILLER/Covert operative that specializes in misinformation and overthrowing countries but there is NO Darkness in her soul? What kind of tests did you give her to determine that SHE would be a suitable operative? This should be included in the writing!

Some of y'all suspect a few people of being informants NOW! (Laughter) No, if this show fails and I believe it has. It is because of shoddy writing. You have to tell a good story! You must have well developed characters, they have to be interesting. These aren't! The IDEA is interesting! No, I think that certain screeners are desperate to appear diverse and intoxicated on the IDEA of  having two Black leads in a series that look as appealing as these two.

A good story, a well developed plot and interesting three dimensional characters.  This show only has 1 dimensional characters that are extremely pretty, a sub par plot and a sub par story.

Sorry Boris! Better luck next time!

YAY For Mike Vick! Redemption Step 2


Mike Vick is now the starting Quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.  KEWL! Now, I am a DIE HARD RAIDER FAN and that ain't gonna change but I'm happy for Mike Vick! I got tired of football folks acting as if Mike Vick was a washed up has been.  Mike Vick had a $100 Million dollar contract and was on the cover of Madden just a couple of years ago. Mike Vick was one of the most feared of a new style of Quarterbacks! Big like a linebacker, fast like a running back that included Dante Culpepper. 

He went to jail for financing a dog fighting ring! He trained, fought and killed dogs.  He was disgraced, he was fined and he was incarcerated.  That's right! He was JAILED and he lost his FORTUNE! Philly gave him a shot after two years of incarceration.  He backed up Donovan Mcnabb!  Philly wanted something or someone  different and they BOOSTED UP KEVIN COBB, the Young Quarterback heir apparent.  COBB is not ready yet and Mike Vick is NO Has been.  He's a Proven STARTER who committed a CRIME, got caught and served time!

There are still people who don't want to ever let MIKE VICK have a day in the sun.  That's a shame! Forgiveness and Redemption are things that we value so much. Well, at least that's what we always highlight in the movies.  Mike Vick's been hanging with the always classy Coach Tony Dungy, so he's not gonna say this but since I ain't hangin with TONY DUNGY i'll say it for him. 



Years ago, I was surprised to learn that Actor/Comedian Tim Allen is a convicted Felon! He sold cocaine, He was a real Drug Dealer! He got caught and did time.  Right before he went to prison, he started to do stand up. He told the comedy club owner that his name was Tim Allen Dick (Yes, that's his real name) and that he would be going to jail soon for selling drugs.  He went to PRISON! He came out and went into comedy.  Funnie, didn't he have a top 10 family comedy called Home Improvement? Yeah, he did.  He has told his story but no one ever says HEY! There goes Tim Allen the DRUG DEALER! He does movies! Family Movies of which I am a fan! Well, except for Santa Clause 3.


Movie Star/Television Actor/Convicted Felon TIM ALLEN

Eff all them folks that won't forgive and move on! Mike Vick didn't RAPE a College GIRL! He was not accused of SEXUALLY Assaulting anyone. He did not drive drunk! He did not cheat on his taxes! He did not fire a gun in a nightclub.  He did not spit on a fan.  He did not drive his vehicle onto the sidewalk and take out "Fluffy" Grandma's faithful yorkie! There are some in Professional Sports that have been accused of and that DID some of the above that are playing and living their lives.

HE fought PIT BULLS for ALOT of MONEY! HE fought PIT BULLS for ALOT of MONEY!

HE fought PIT BULLS for ALOT of MONEY! HE fought PIT BULLS for ALOT of MONEY!

He killed the losers and the ones who would weaken the breed. He is now a Felon, he can't vote now.  He will always have to explain what he did when he was in his 20's for the rest of his life! It may keep him out of the Hall of Fame one day! Some dog lover who has a vote may decide that Mike Vick can not enter the hall even if he does good works and great football for the next twenty years.

He fought some Damn Dogs! DOGS not HUMANS! THEY are NOT THE SAME! You've forgiven and given second and third chances to far worse for far worse! Get over it!

Thank God (IAM) for Redemption and MIKE I'm routing for you!

Update! Reggie Bush Gives up the Heisman!


It's amazing when a Black Man dates a White Woman all the problems that he encounters in LIFE from that point become the fault of dating the WHITE Woman! Example! Billy got hit by a car! Shouldn't nuh been effin with that White Girl! Comedian Chis Rock!

Reggie Bush Loses the Heisman! Shouldn't Nuh been effin with that White Girl!

Heisman Trophy Winner and Current NFL Star Reggie Bush has returned the Heisman Trophy amidst allegations that he was ineligible to play during the 2005 University of Southern California Championship Season after the NCAA sanctioned the University for NCAA Rule Violations.  The University has vacated all their victories and the Championship banners, disassociated themselves from Mr. Bush, changing the Media Guide to reflect only five not six Heisman Trophy winners, receiving a two year post season Bowl ban, and forfeiting 30 Scholarships. 

For this writer this serves as a cautionary tale for all Marquee High Profile College Athletes in ALL SPORTS! There are plenty of people who want to make money off of you and they will use many different means in order to gain your favor and entice you to accept gifts. In Mr. Bush's case, it was gifts given to his family, including money to buy a new home. For Mr. Bush it was supposedly a new vehicle which he drove on to the campus.  Athletes DO NOT accept GIFTS! Don't DO it!

For the University of Southern California, I'd like to say this! STOP BEING EFFIN HYPOCRITES! If Reggie Heisman Trophy Winner Bush drove on Campus with a NEW EFFIN VEHICLE you should have pulled REGGIE and HIS FAMILY in and made sure this was KOSHER! Now, giving you the benefit of the doubt, maybe you didn't know. Or maybe you felt as the Bush's did that while it might have been wrong in the spirit of the law it was not wrong technically cause the ATHLETE didn't accept any monies directly!

Reggie, You a great Trojan! There I said it! Even if the University has decided to set you adrift in the battle! YOU STILL A USC TROJAN and the TRUE 2005 HEISMAN WINNER! Go out and BE TRUTHFUL and HONORABLE about this situation. Spare no names cause they have not done the same by you. By the way.....

I don't think it was cause you was Effin around with that White Girl! That ish is hilarious though!

September 11th!


I was off work when my Girlfriend called me and told me, "Turn on the News!" An airplane just hit the World Trade Center.  I was thinking that this was a freak accident.  I wondered how in the hell did a pilot managed to do that?  Then, as we were speaking a second airplane hit the tower! My God!

Within a week, I understood the absolute horror of what had occurred. Osama Ben Laden didn't win because he and his followers committed a heinous act of violence, they could win, because there were and are some people in AMERICA that would finish the job that he wanted to do for him! Those people.....are us!

We have seen the enemy and it is US! POGO Comic Strip!

When we stop believing in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution then we are no longer AMERICA! We believe in the Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Speech! We do not believe in slavery! We believe that a person has the right not to be harassed and arrested without cause.  Well, there were some who are being detained indefinitely! There are those who have been investigated without warrant! Why? Fear! That's not the way America should be run.

That is the way of Osama Ben Laden and others who feel that they are the chosen, the anointed ones who can decide what people should believe.  Well there is only ONE GOD and Osama Ben Laden is not IT!
I have the right to believe what I choose and to criticize it when I believe it to be necessary and I will not let that freedom be taken from me! This is America! Good, Bad, Worse and sometimes better!

I believe in everyone having the chance to better themselves but not at the expense of someone else! With in a week of September 11, I started a newsletter called "Outside the Lines" the document and give voice to what was happening! Why? Cause, a Muslim Friend's Uncle was assaulted in New Jersey at gunpoint because he was a Muslim.  Two Men in suits walked up into the Shades of Afrika bookstore where I once worked with a can of paint and painted over some political graffiti that read "Free Mumia Abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier!" BLU Magazine which was a far left magazine cover politics, arts and music was shut down and the commune that supported it's staff as well.  This was not the America that I was taught to defend!

It was What Osama Ben Laden and unfortunately what some in America would have it to BE. 
Well, my CHOICE of Weapon will not be FEAR, REPRESSION, CENSORSHIP or VIOLENCE! My Choice will be MY FAITH, MY VOICE! MY WRITING! MY LOVE!

You will not win Followers of Satan! YOU HAVE LOST! As long as we remember that Freedom does not begin and end at who has the biggest gun! WE WIN and WE Remain AMERICA!

To all those who's lives were lost in the horror of September 11, 2001 We remember you! To those who are alive and remember in the words of Songwriter Dave Frishberg "I hope my children live to see.... a land like my country used to BE.

Todays Weapon! Ahisma! Do no harm!

I wrote on the principle of Ahisma (Non violence) on Mista Jaycee's Stretchin out http://www.stretchinout.blogspot.com/ not too long ago but it got me to thinking.  Yeshua (Jesus) when speaking to the crowds and his disciples "Bless them that curse you!" "Love your enemies".

This week, the news covered alot about this So called Christian Pastor who planned to burn copies of the Noble Quran on September 11.  Was this a Christ-like response to the horror of that day? Of course not! What is non violence really? It does not mean that I don't hit you back when you hit me! That's wrong and simple minded.

True NON-Violence means that you wrap yourself in the armor of LOVE! Without the supreme love that comes from the DIVINE you can not combat the forces of darkness.  If you wrap yourself in the armor of love, and eat the bread of the divine. (Bless them that curse you) then you are first dealing with the darkness in yourself! I'll admit it! I got pissed at alot of what the Pastor proposed to do. 

I know Muslims and have family members and friends that follow Al-Islam.  I listen to them and how they feel their religion is portrayed and understood in this country. Well, what about mine?  I've taken the time to read the Noble Quran, it's a beautiful book.  I hope and invite folks to read the Bible because it's a beautiful book.

Most of all. I hope that people would try to live the principles in all the Holy books. Love God (IAM) and each other and if not then treat each other with respect.

Ahisma! Do no harm!

Rumor! Reggie Bush to be stripped of his Heisman Trophy

Pro Football Star/Heisman Trophy Honoree Reggie Bush

University of Southern California Alumni and Heisman Trophy Winner Reggie Bush must be privately saying what the Eff?  I know that I am! The NCAA determined that the Student Athlete received improper benefits while playing at the University and in a draconian move stripped the University of 30 scholarships and Bowl play for the next two seasons.  The University is not allowed to associate with Reggie Bush in any way while the University is under penalty.  In response, the University, sent it's Heisman Trophy back to the Heisman Trust without being asked, changed their media guides advertising that USC has 6 Heisman Trophy Winners to 5 and painted over the murals honoring Bush.  Why?  Reggie Bush won the trophy for what he accomplished on the field! Did he use steroids? Did he cheat on the field? He proved he was the best on the field fairly and honestly.  His team proved they were the best team on the field as well.

The current rumor is that the Heisman Trust is considering stripping Bush of the honor advising that he was not eligible for the award during the 2005 season.  This seems peculiar, did Reggie Bush do anything that to dishonor or defame the Heisman? No! He's been a honorable dude in the NFL.  This seems to be an unprecedented move as well. USC Graduate/Hall of Famer and former Murder suspect OJ Simpson has not been stripped of his trophy! He has not been the most honorable dude or a great representative of the Heisman Trust since leaving USC. Murder trail aside, OJ Simpson has gotten into constant scrapes with the law even before that Bull ish conviction in Nevada. Yeah, I said Bull ish! USC could have covered OJ's murals and disassociated itself from him and no one would have blamed them.  But Reggie Bush? What the hell? How many recruits is OH JAY Simpson gonna bring to USC?  No, this reeks! It totally reeks! Hey USC! I guess, the checks in the mail too for all the money the University of Southern California made because of Reggie Bush! Glad to know that since you've held yourself to such high standards of integrity and honor that you will BE doing that too.

Hey! How bout vacating all the victories too! Taking down the banners! Come on! HONOR! INTEGRITY! It's about right RIGHT? Not the 30 lost scholarships or the two year bowl ban! Right? The University of Southern California of course will allow Bush to keep his education and degree right? You won't be asking Reggie to return any scholarship money right? Of course, if you do then, YOU wouldn't feel angry if Bush charged you a Million dollars a year for his services while he played there? Since he wasn't a STUDENT right? He must have been a PROFESSIONAL right?

Reggie Bush should be able to keep his Heisman cause he won it fair and square. USC did not deserve to be penalized to the extent they were but it serves as a reminder to all Student Athletes and especially to the BLACK STUD! Opps! I meant STUDENT ATHLETE that they will use you, and when THEY are DONE they will throw you away!

Just say God! Glen Beck and his March!

So called Conservative Pundit Glen Beck

Definition of COUNTERFEIT Merriman Webster Online Dictionary

Coun·ter·feit adj \ˈkau̇nt-ər-ˌfit\
1: made in imitation of something else with intent to deceive : forged

2a : insincere, feigned b : imitation
 
 
This past weekend So called Conservative Pundit Glen Beck invoked images of Dr. Martin Luther King and the March on Washington for Jobs and Social Justice as he spoke at a rally of so called conservatives.  I will only focus on one aspect of his speech.  "We have forgotten God, we have to get back to God!"  
 
As a child growing up in the Seventh Day Adventist Christian Church we were taught that the preachers of the day would use this language and that it would signal the coming of the Anti Christ or for those familiar with this blog the "Counterfeit Christ". It would be a precursor to State Sponsered Enforcement of Religion or more acturately a State Sponsered Religion and a persecution of those who would not follow the States religion. (SUNDAY WORSHIP)
 
"We have forgotten God, we have to get back to God!"
 
I'm not gonna spell out Seventh Day Adventist Theology or give a Bible Study on the Truth about Sunday (1st Day) Worship or the Creation Sabbath (7th Day).  Nah! That's another post. But I would say this about Glen Beck.  You are NOT Dr. King, and while some would compare your march to his, they would be mistaken! Yes! You both had a march. Yes! You both spoke in Washington. That's where the similarities end!
 
Mr. Beck, when Past President Bush started the Iraq War based on faulty info why weren't you calling for God then? When the so called Middle Class was shrinking and the divide between the RICH and POOR was growing larger and larger every day. You weren't hollering bout GOD!
 
 When Katrina happened and American Citizens were Homeless, Jobless and scattered across the wind due to faulty levies and neglect by the United States Army Corp of Engineers, You were Not fighting for those citizens! You were Not calling for the heads of those Engineers, State heads and etc responsible! When Bush and Co neglected them for over five days You didn't criticize them!
 
When 20 years of Phill Gramm inspired economic thinking and de regulation finally helped to collapse the US Economic System! You didn't cry out for oversight or regulation or even Jail for those responsible.  In fact you still supported them! YOU are still supporting them NOW!
 
So why God now? In my Bible God says that what you do unto the least of these you do unto ME! He was speaking of the poor.  Are you an avocate of the poor now Glen? I hope I can call you Glen.
So what Book are you reading and what God are you saying we need to get back to?  You mean more of those good ole fashion family values that the Republicans promote but don't follow themselves?
 
Newsflash for you Glen! Black Folks have always Been Back to God! You don't speak for us and Guess what? You don't speak to us either! You don't speak for the AMERICAN People! Wanna Get right with the God (IAM) start doing for the poor. Stop your hateful rhethoric towards President Obama and try to work with him. Encourage your Republican friends to do the same for once! Hey if you desire to live a real righteous life, steeped in the principles of God (IAM)  then Go ahead on Glen! But right now you just another one of a long line of Republican jackels who have invoked the name of God  and point a certain segment towards a false idol of God (IAM) whenever it was politically necessary.
 
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
