Super Con!

I recieved an email supposedly from Google informing me that I some unspecified item has been posted on my blog and some unidentified party has stated to them supposedly that I have infringed on their copyrighted or trademarked item. 

Hummm! It would help GOOGLE if you informed a BLOGGER such as myself, what supposed item has been infringed upon.  What post? What date? What Blog? Did I use a quote? Did I use a photo? What?

Copyrights and Trademarks protect everyone if they are used correctly.  If you feel that I have used a photo of yours or a piece of copyrighted material improperly I apologize, then I want to know what items you speak of and who you are so that I can take them down.  I am not about to scour or delete five years worth of pictures, 98.9 percent are public domain because they are posted from the internet and by the way the photos say courtesy of the World Wide Web. 

 These are my rights as a blogger who by the way owns a ton of copyrighted material, some of which appears in A Choice Of Weapons, Mista Jaycee's Stretchin Outtttt and Odie Hawkins Unlimited. 

I can respect a corporate entities right to protect their property but I want to know what items they say belong to them and I will not take down one single item or post until I am properly informed of what specifically is the offending item.

Mista Jaycee Embraces Clowns!

My hatred of Clowns is well documented so it should come as no surprise what this post is about but just like our electoral process you have to read beyond the headline. 

"Mista Jaycee likes Clowns???!!! "

Nope!

Mista Jaycee still detests their very existence!

But now the REAL point of this post. This week President Barack Obama lent his support to same sex marriage and the Right Wing and so called Right Wing issue supporters like the "Black Church" went nuts. Nuts! NUTS!

Why?

Has there been any legislation that makes same sex unions legal in all 50 states by a federal proposal?  Nope! It's all State laws that get challenged and no one State law is uniformed or recognized in all the other states in the Union.  So the proposal is purely symbolic.

If you read Machiavelli's "The Prince"  you understand what just happened.  President Obama gave a Symbolic gesture to the gay community during an election season and this lobby has an interest again in seeing him reelected although they have yet to see anything that would indicate that they will be better off in four years compared to now. Genius!

Is anyone talking about the economy?  The banks?  Student loans?  Higher Student loan interest?  Foreclosures?  Predator Loans?  Wall Street? Nope!

Do you hear any real criticism of the PRESIDENT on those issues?  Nope! President Obama is a Genius!

GENIUS!

Now, I would like to apologize for being away so long.  Clowns got me!

Darth Plagueis! Novel Review

Star Wars Nerd Alert!!!!
Spoiler Alert!!!

If you have not read Darth Plaguius by James Luceno then you gonna find out about it here cause I read it! I read it and now I'm gonna tell allllllll about it!

Before Emperor Palpintine/Darth Sideous ascended to the throne of the Galactic Empire he apprenticed under Darth Plagueis the Munn, a master of Midiclorian Manipulation.  It is said in Star Wars lore that Plagueis could create life and may have been the force daddy of one Anakin Skywalker who goes on to be YOU KNOW WHO!

I read this great long short story called "I Palpintine" by Christian Defeo which I highly recommend, it can be found in PDF form online. But I digress!

The novel starts with Plagueis apprenticing under Darth Tenebous the Bith who believes that Plagueis is destined to bring about the near completion of Darth Bane's vision for the destruction of the Republic and the Jedi Order. 

While Plagueis is apart of the 85 % of the story it's NOT about Plagueis but about Palpentine.  It mentions all of Plagueis experiments in trying to achieve immortality blah blah blah but nothing really about Plagueis or what really made him turn to the dark side, what really made him a great Sith Lord before he chose his eventual successor.  Nothing! The novel spends alot of time on Palpentine and his rise to power. 

I mentioned the "I Palpintine" story because it does what Plaguius should have done and been.  It starts with Palpentine as a young artist with a very ambitious, cunning, intelligent politician of a Father who guides his son to politics, it shows his falling in love, his joy, his passion, and the betrayal that ruins his family, his career, and his love that leads to embrace the dark side of the force and eventually rise to be Darth Sideous.  I suggest you find it online and read IT! Not Darth Plagueis unless you get it from the library for free. Don't waste your money! You are being Conned!

"The Help" Mississippi God Damn!


The 2012 Oscars have been awarded. Viola Davis didn't win Best Actress for her role in Kathern Stockert's "The Help"  but Octavia Spencer did. I love both Sistahs and I hope that they both have long, successful careers but personally I couldn't care less about "The Help".

I ignored it when it was in the theatre and only saw it after much pressure from my Wife to rent it because it was up for an Oscar. The help is about a White Woman who writes the stories of 1960's era Jackson, Mississippi Domestic maids and their lives behind the scenes. 

One segment of the film sums up why this movie gets the finger.  The Octavia Spencer character after having been verbally abused by her young White employer and fired, seemingly grovels back to her with a baked pie in tow.  After the shrewish employer eats two slices she is informed that she literally has eaten a pie filling made of the Maids shit! Later in the movie the shrewish employer is bullied in silence, and some compliance because she doesn't want her embarrassment revealed. 

This is 1960's era MISSISSIPPI! In real life if that maid had even implied that she had done anything remotely close to that, that WOMAN would have shot her where she stood and had her body burned.  That's not hyperbole, that's fact! The Book and Movie fail cause it ignores what really happened in that time.  God Damn Mississippi was the most hellish of all the segregated South!  A Black PERSON COULD BE KILLED FOR NOTHING! No reason at all.  There was no Sassin in MISSISSIPPI!  

It's an insult to our ancestors memories and all our folks who are still alive that suffered in it! But that's the trick of White Supremacy.  Over time they try to rewrite history! It minimizes what has happened to where the oppressed victim and their decendants say oh it wasn't that bad. 


No! NO! GOD DAMN MISSISSIPPI! For all the innocents who were hung, burned, raped, humiliated, beaten, framed, jailed, drowned, castrated, poisoned, sterilized, burned and ran out of Mississippi and the South for nothing more than being Afrikan, Colored, Negro, Black, Afro American, African American. 



GOD DAMN MISSISSIPPI!

And to all the Monsters Ball's, Training Day's and movies like "THE Help" and the White so called Liberal film makers and writers who create these vile products and then award talented ACTORS the industry highest honor for bringing them to life while projects that would enrich, elevated and empower Afrikan Americans and America as a whole go ignored or remain unmade.  A BIG MIDDLE DIGIT!

Al Austin For 8th District!

When we the people elected President Obama in mass we voted for change! Now, the old order has fought tooth and nail to impede the change we the people desire.  There are some of us who after four years may be disappointed and disillusioned; Don't BE!

It's time for the Working Class, the Poor and The Middle class to start thinking about the Long Game! The change we want has to be implemented constantly and in stages.We will have to elect CHANGE Politicians for the next two decades in Local, Statewide and National Elections, appoint judges and like minded people to boards and committees.  President Obama has gotten alot done but he can't do it alone,  we as the thinking electorate that wants change have to begin to impart it by electing more new blood.

 Al Austin is that Man! 

He lives in Long Beach, represents North Long Beach very well, and wants your help in not just getting elected but in bringing businesses to North Long Beach, changing the culture of City Hall and the Council but most of all by changing the landscape of hopelessness that saturates the 8th District.  

562 magazine once did a wonderful five part expose on Long Beach quoting " If you enter Long Beach from the Vincent Thomas Bridge and come down Ocean Blvd it looks wonderful and you think Wow Long Beach is doing great! But if you come into Long Beach by any of the other seven avenues of entrance and look at Long Beach, it's WOW LONG BEACH REALLY SUCKS! Well, try entering Long Beach from the City of Carson on Delamo Blvd or Southbound from the City of Compton by way of Long Beach Blvd and see how you feel.  North Long Beach needs and deserves to prosper. 

Al Austin is one small but very important part of that change!

What Black Folks Want??? According to Santoram!

White Folks, let Mista Jaycee talk with you for a minute.  Come here, sit a while. Tryna help you! 
Republican Contender Rick Santoram stated that he wants to talk to Black Folks about something besides WELFARE! 

What the hell????

I know that Conservatives (White Folks) patron saint is  Ronald Reagan  (Effin Devil) and Ronald Reagan and all the Republicans that have followed him since like to tell y'all "good" Conservatives  that Black Folks want welfare and they always show a Big Fat Black Woman in a Ghetto somewhere waiting on her check.  

Here it is Conservatives, coming right from your Black Progressive Independent friend Mista Jaycee.  Black Folks don't give a F--K about welfare and we never did. Not one single, solitary F--K!  We wanted Good Jobs and a fair shake that is all we ever asked for.  

And by the way, stop demonizing the poor you F--ks! People that need welfare, regardless of color, don't want to suffer the humiliation of going down to the Welfare offices in America, answering those numerous embarrassing and intrusive questions about why they need assistance and food stamps but they endure it cause Nobody wants welfare but nobody should have to starve either in America! 

The majority of the American people that are on WELFARE and have always been on WELFARE are WHITE PEOPLE! It's time y'all deal with that! 

Mista Jaycee???!!! Stop hyperventilating! Get a brown bag and breathe.  White Folks are the MAJORITY in this country, so it is White folks who benefit the most from any  entitlements and special interests.  It is also WHITE FOLKS who shoot themselves in the foot by voting for folks like Ronald Reagan (Effin Devil) and his Republican ilk who don't want anyone to have any entitlements except them and their friends of which y'all really ain't included.  

So what do Black Folks want?? 

Well, I won't be so presumptuous as to speak for "Black People" there are alot of us ya know. 
But I'll give it a shot.

1.  Great Schools and Great Vocational training

2.   An End to Police Brutality and Fairness in the Criminal Justice System

3.  Employment opportunities that lead to the Middle class and beyond.  

4.  Equal and Affordable access to Healthcare 

5.  Equal and Affordable access to good housing

6. Grants and Loans that allow us to build business and employ our own people.

That's just a small part of what (Black Folks) want!   

Now, what I personally would like is for White Folks to really talk to these so called conservatives  and asked Conservatives like Santoram why there is no manufacturing industry in America? 

Point out to so called conservatives that when the Unions were strong in America that the poor and working class moved up into the middle class, buying homes, going to college and sending their children to college.  The GI Bill is an Entitlement that Americans White and Black have been able to use to move up in America.   

Ask Newt why he has voted against increasing Educational Grants throughout the years and force millions of young people trying to elevate themselves to take out high interest student loans that keep them indebted for decades after they have finished school?  Why not just invest in your people with grants as they will be paying taxes back into the system after school?  

Why have conservatives not dealt with the country failing infrastructure?  Roads, Highways, bridges and levees are all falling apart.  With all these Americans out of work, you'd think that conservatives would be thrilled to have a Government that would hire the unemployed to REBUILD America and pay taxes into the system.  

Ask so called conservatives why so much time has been spent on President Obama's birth certificate and not on all the homes that have been foreclosed on?  All the jobs that have moved overseas?  All the tax breaks that  have been given to the highest wage earners and not the working and middle classes? Why Corporations continue to enjoy tax breaks and subsidization while they put their income into off shore tax shelters?  Shouldn't conservatives demand that Corporations pay the American people back by creating good paying  jobs on shore?  

Just asking!

Whitney

Rest in Peace Whitney!

Whitney was the package! Stunning looks, height, weight, and that VOICE! She didn't just display vocal acrobatics but she knew how to caress a lyric.  One singer may have a wonderful voice but can't make the song live. And some have a marginal voice but interpret a lyric to no end.  Baby Face falls in the category.

But Whitney had it all! That is sooo rare and even with all of those gifts a singer may not make it to the top.  Trust, the music business is treacherous!

Gonna have to pull out my copy of her first album and listen to "You give good love" again.

Rest in Peace and thanks for the music.

Happy Black History Month!

Ahhhh! The shortest month of the year is here! Even doing leap year! 29 days!
But don't dispair for any student of history knows that there is no history without Black History.

Don't ya just love this photo with Dr. King and Bayard Rustin? Who's Bayard Rustin?  He organized the March on Washington, gave Dr. King lessons on Non Violence Resistance tactics. Mr. Rustin had been protesting and using these tactics throughout the South for over a decade by the time Dr. King and he met. 

Mr. Rustin was honest and open with his homosexuality which caused concern and in some cases rifts in the movement as Activist worried if it would be used to discredit the cause along with their own prejudices and homophobia. Rustin took a step back in order to keep the movement from damage.  Rustin made Nixon's Enemies list! Whoo Whoo! Up into the 1980's he branched out from Civil and Human rights causes to Gay and Lesbian causes.  He should be remembered for his great work.

Education in AmeriKKKA!

What happened to wood shop? Autoshop? Metalshop? I made a cutting board, and I was real proud whenever my Mom used it. I learned to fix the wiring in a lamp!  Of course, this helped me as a writer.  Not! But it helped me as a Man.

It helped me as a teenager, and I now as a pre-geezer, (age 42) I listen to all these political hacks constantly promote nothing except Math and Science to complete with the Chinese Students who live in China.

Question? What if you aren't good at Math and Science? Is it fair that education is now geared only to Math and Science and not towards wood shop, auto shop, electrical shop, Music and Art Education?

But we have to compete with those Indian/Chinese kids who study year round? You mean those kids that come over here to learn from our professors while sitting next to Johnny and Jill Appleseed?

Come on you know that's bulls*it!

Their education is not better than ours, it's geared in one direction though. It may work for their country but I'm sure that there are educators who have looked into the long term health of the China's Educational system that do not support Math and Science solely being the focus.

So, what's really going on?  Well, the death of American Manufacturing for one?  We ain't making nothing and if we are we want it cheap!

Americans want to be able to make a decent living from their work. They want to get paid.  No one wants to work in a sweat shop for sweat shop pay but that's exactly what certain segments of the American Private Sector seemed to be gearing us for. But I digress!

Here we are battling Real Education versus Volk Education in a very real way.  Real Education means that you study everything indeptly with the intent on running things.  This has been set aside for the children of the financial elite.   And then there's Volk (Citizen or People) Education.  That's public education with an emphasis on making good Citizens or State Soldiers.   That's right! They want you to be clones, drones, automatons.  Yeah, I said it! And it's true.

Public School Education is geared to get the working class kids to do what?  March in lockstep.  Don't believe me? Look at any elementary school in the inner city.  Kids come through one gate, show id to a guard, wear a uniform and may have recess on a fenced in playground. Surprise they going to prison?  You shouldn't be. They've been trained for it.  Go to Prison cause there are not real viable economic opportunities available and build that General Electric Washing Machine in a Private Prison Workshop for 18 cents a day that they sell to you for $800.00 while they lay off thousands of machinists while crying poor.

Am I lying?  Have I told ya wrong? No and ya know it but is you mad enough to do something about it?
First thing.  Do NOT Vote Republican under any circumstances.  Support President Obama and Kick out any Democrats that don't support a PROGRESSIVE AGENDA.

Go to the local Education Boards and start demanding a REAL EDUCATION and REMOVING THE Apparatus that creates Citizen Soldiers Education.

Just a thought!

Newt! Black Folks can give an Eff about Welfare!

Republican Stalwart Newt Gingrich is throwing out his Racist code word vitriol again mentioning Black People and Welfare to us as if it's an issue that we care about.

Fact: Black People are 13 % of the American Population.

That means the majority of people on welfare are WHITE People! Talk to them about taking away their welfare. Talk to White People about removing any social welfare programs, and about why the Republicans have do not want to extend unemployment benefits.

Fact: In 1996, a massive welfare reform bill was passed by Newt and the 100 congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The law limited how long a person can stay on welfare and then they had to go to work.  It even had a jobs program.  Problem with jobs programs is that they are low wage jobs that you can't pay rent, health care, or childcare with.

Where are the jobs?  I don't see the Republicans introducing any legislation to penalize corporations that have sent jobs overseas and continue to do so.

Black People are not the Problem with America Newt and various Republican White Folks.  The Problem with America is YOU and those who think like you.

Happy New Year You Racist Tools!
