Look before you leap.

When a regular reader to the fields sent me an e-mail about the Barnes & Noble Book Store in Florida placing a book about monkeys with the Obama book display, I was fit to be tied. I couldn't wait to jump all over the Barnes & Noble folks. But something told me to chill and learn some more about the situation before I got on the grievance train.

Well I am happy to report that I did. Because as it turns out Barnes & Noble has apologized for what happened, and they swear up and down that they had nothing to do with it. Apparently the hard economic times are getting to those citizens down in Florida. They have to take out their angst on somebody, and right now it looks like the guy in power who they think is closer to the monkey in the evolutionary chain.

Now some bloggers still don't believe that Barnes & Noble weren't aware of the display, and they are still pissed at the large bookstore chain. I am not going to go that route, because I know how our fellow A-merry-cans can be. We can be hard on each other sometimes, and it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to see some customer going over to the display and doing a quick makeover.

But still, this is A-merry-ca, and a part of me wants to agree with the blogger, "Mr. Grey Ghost", when he posted this:

"'This was not a company driven decision," Edgar Chang, the store manager, said in an interview with TheDefendersOnline. “We are not sure how the book got in the window, but we believe it was put there by a customer who didn’t like the fact that Obama won the election.'

I'm not buying this apology. How does a customer get the time to place a book in a store window? Much less, how does the monkey book stay there long enough for people walking on the street to take photos? This sounds like the work of a bigot store employee. This Barnes & Noble store needs to conduct a thorough investigation of its workers, because so far their excuse sounds pretty lame. "

Hmmm, okay, I will buy the fact that it could have been an employee. And it shouldn't be hard to find the culprit. Just watch for the one driving out with the McCain/Palin bumper sticker on the back of their ride.

What's in a name?

Shame on IU. I have never liked that school. (Maybe it's a Bob Knight thing) And I really don't like them after reading the following article:

"BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The chairman of an Indiana University committee says the panel will recommend adding a black basketball player’s name to a gymnasium named after a longtime trustee who advocated racial segregation in the 1940s.

The committee will recommend renaming the Ora Wildermuth Intramural Center the William L. Garrett/Ora L. Wildermuth Fieldhouse, IU vice president Terry Clapacs told the Indiana Daily Student.

Garrett, who died in 1974, was the first black basketball player at IU.University President Michael McRobbie will take the recommendation to the trustees during a facilities committee meeting on Nov. 19, Clapacs said.Clapacs said the panel opted against removing Wildermuth’s name because it would be unfair to judge what he said decades ago by today’s standards.Letters written by Wildermuth in the 1940s came to light last year. He was the school’s Board of Trustees president during 1938-49. He died in 1964, and the Wildermuth Intramural Center was named for him in 1971.Wildermuth was a teacher, librarian and judge during Gary’s first years as a city in the early 1900s. A Gary library branch has been named for him since 1954.Wildermuth wrote in a 1945 letter to an IU administrator that while he had no objections to giving blacks educational opportunities, “I am and shall always remain absolutely and utterly opposed to social intermingling of the colored race with the white.”In a 1948 letter to IU President Herman B Wells, he wrote: “The average of the (black) race as to intelligence, economic status and industry is so far below the white average that it seems to me futile to build up hope for a great future.”

The letters came to public attention in a 2006 book about Garrett, who became the first black to play basketball for IU after being named the 1947 Mr. Basketball from Shelbyville High School."

So the folks at IU didn't know about this racist before? And now they want to appease you Negroes by adding Garrett's name to the building. Well I am with Mr. Garrett's wife, Betty, who told them what they can do with their building. That's field Negro behavior, Betty.

And finally, I want to once again encourage you black folks to choose your battles carefully in our new post racial A-merry-ca. Do not get bent out of shape if a mountain has the name Negro on it. It's just not that deep. If liberal white folks want to change a name to make themselves feel better, let them go at it. At some point we have to just chill and focus on the shit that really matters. Like watermelon jokes from Mayors, for instance.

Spare the rod......

Tonight I am blogging about two stories which are worlds apart in geography and what actually happened, but they are connected and similar in many ways.

I will start with poor Alma Harding of Devon, England, all she did was lay a royal smack down with a church program on some punk who was vandalising city and church property. The lady, as the story goes, had spent countless hours of her time and her own money to spruce up the area in question with flowers and hanging baskets, and these little punks saw fit to play target practice with soccer balls on it. The woman was returning home from church and she must have remembered that if she "spared the rod she would spoil the child". So she let the little punks have it with the church program. And for this the poor woman was charged and convicted of assaulting the little thugs.

Now my next story takes place right here in Killadelphia, Pistolvania, and of course it involves an incident far more tragic. In the middle of the day on a West Killadelphia street, a 16 year old boy walked up to a 12 year old boy while he was sitting in his mother's car and pumped 5 rounds into the child. This happened right across the street from a day care while people (including the victims own mother who was picking up his 3 year old sister) were picking up their children. This little thug was brazen and heartless, and he is typical of the urban predators that we are spawning here on our mean streets. If you thought Philly was known for only having the best cheese steaks you would be wrong. Nope, Philly is known for having the most violent juveniles in the country, and the stories you hear everyday around here justifies the label.

"...Police said the victim was sitting in the front passenger seat of his mother’s car, while she picked up his sister, when an unknown shooter walked up and fired five rounds into the vehicle about 3:30, police said. The youth was struck in the left hand and chest. Moments later, his mother ran after the gunman, who tucked the gun in his waistband, and fled on 60th Street, police said. She lost track of him about a block away, and ran inside a daycare center for help. “The bloodcurdling screams of the mother...I will never forget it,” said Monica Mason, who was inside the center when she heard the gunshots and screams.."

Yes folks this is how we are living here in Killadelphia. (Digression alert!) So field how are these two stories connected? I will tell you how: The little animal that shot the young man is still on the run, and any day now you will hear his mama and all his peeps tell you what a good kid he was. You will hear how he used to help old ladies across the street, and how he was just a neighborhood kid who used to just hang out and play basketball blah blah blah. But what you won't hear is that when he was running wild in that neighborhood if anyone dared to grab his little ass and try to tell him right from wrong his mama would be the first one in line to slap a law suit on them or call the po po and scream child abuse. Like the little punks in England, these punks in Philly are out of control, and there is no one like that good church lady to let them have it with a rolled up church program, or anything else for that matter.

So that's how these two stories are connected; little punks running wild and instead of society putting their asses in check, we are charging church ladies in England with assault. I don't know about society in general, but I know that in the black community we need to just declare open season on ass whopping little juvenile delinquents. And that means anybody can whop anybody else's child. If the little crumb snatcher is acting up, you lay a good old fashion beat down on his ass. We will trust your judgement no questions asked. Pookey, why was that strange man beating you with his belt? He caught me tagging Ms. Chen's store mama. Well turn your little ass over so that I can tear it up again.

They won't be singing "Hail To The Chief".

Let me say this and get it out of the way right now: gentlemen, thank you for your service.

But now I am going to have to rip both of you.

I see where another A-merry-can soldier stationed Iraq has joined 1st Lieutenant Scott Easterling in his law suit against Barack Hussein Obama. It seems that these men refuse to serve under a Commander in Chief who they do not believe is eligible to be their president.

We can thank Orly Taitz, a California attorney (sometimes I am ashamed of my profession) for this latest joke of a law suit. This clown has joined the one who flew over the cuckoo's nest, Alan Keyes, to stir up this Obama birth certificate mess again. So now that they have two soldiers to join their ridiculous suit, they are getting pub from the likes of Matt Drudge.

"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States."

Hey, I love our brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms, (I still mourn the loss of one of them who was related to me by law) but these two....I don't know. I guess the recruiting station is open to all types. And hey, this is A-merry-ca, so they have a right to their views. But they are in the military, and the O man is their Commander in Chief whether they like it or not. If they want to be deserters that Canadian border is wide open. I am quite sure that there were quite a few people who were serving in Iraq who couldn't stand the frat boy. But you didn't see them joining with crack pots and filing lawsuits to have him removed. This just goes to show you that this O thing could get ugly. We are only a little over a month into his presidency and the derangement syndrome (DS) has kicked in already. Hey, I could excuse an early DS with the frat boy, because quite a few people thought that he did a Jesse James with that election. But this....I just don't get it. Well, maybe I do.

"I am an Army reservist who was activated last August and am currently serving with a military police battalion in Camp Bucca, Iraq. I will be here until at least June 2009..
..When I enlisted last year I had to show my birth certificate, as well as my driver's license, high school diploma, college transcripts, social security card; I also filled out loads of paperwork to include listing the names, addresses and phone numbers of my family members and had to answer any questions regarding foreign travel. ...I think it is reasonable for Obama to prove his citizenship status thus certifying his eligibility. I too raised my right hand and swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States,... I believe the case you are filing could very well determine if we are in fact a Constitutional Republic or a nation of mob rule. I would be honored to be a part of your efforts."

That is what he told Taitz. Soldier you have got to be kidding me. You do realize, don't you, that what you are over there fighting for is the very thing that got Barack Obama elected. It's called a democracy, and this democracy has voted for Barack Hussein Obama to be your Commander in Chief, so get used to it.

"Until Mr. Obama releases a 'vault copy' of his original birth certificate for public review, I will consider him neither my Commander in Chief nor my President, but rather, a usurper to the Office – an impostor,..."

Yeah yeah yeah. Just watch out for enemy fire and shut up.

Pep talk.

As most of you know I love sports analogies, so I am going to use one here.

A-merry-ca these days is like a basketball team with loads of talent that is getting beaten by a lesser team. We are down double digits at half time and we needed our coach to inspire us and tell us to go out and use the talent that we have and win the damn game.

The O man was our coach tonight, and he did a good job of trying to fire up the A-merry-can team. He laid out the x and o's to help us do it, and he inspired his players to get fired up and go out and lay it all on the line. That is what he needed to do. For too long he talked like a coach whose team was finished and was down by too many points. His players were hanging their heads and looking at the Dow scoreboard and thinking it was over. This speech tonight changed that somewhat, and I will be damned if his players probably aren't feeling like they might be able to pull out a win.

"But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this: We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.."

Put me in coach!

Oh, and before I sign off, I have to make a few points:

You all will notice that Eric Holder wasn't in the House chamber tonight. I think his O ness might have told him to be the one to stay at a hidden place in case of an attack. We don't need A-merry-ca being reminded about what "cowards" they are tonight, Eric.

I loved the first lady's hook up. Mrs. Obama I can honestly say that you are the first and only First Lady in history who made my johnson restless.

Who was the brotha in the greeting line who looked like he jumped off an Ohio Players album cover?

And was that his O ness hugging Richard Shelby? O man, maybe you can walk on water.

I am watching the republicans own version of his O ness give the republican response now.(Poor guy, even FOX is dissing him) And all I can say is that if imitation is the greatest form of flattery, the dumbocrats must be feeling downright giddy.

The "foolish talk" merchants.

"That's foolish talk." That is how Chris Matthews described what Bobby Jindal, governor of one of my favorite states,Louisiana, was saying about the stimulus package on "Meet The Press" on Sunday. Unless you have been on another planet for the past few days, I am sure you have heard by now that Jindal and some other republican governors are refusing to take some of the stimulus money. A move so breathtakingly stupid that you really have to wonder if these clowns live in some kind of parallel universe. Bobby, I am quite familiar with your fine state, I have a personal connection to it, and I am here to tell you that you can use the money. I know that you have national political ambitions, and that you want to grandstand and show that you can stare down the O man to all your republican pals nationwide. But there are some unemployed people in Louisiana who could use some of that money, and your obligation is to them, not partisan republicans nationwide. Where I am from that's called "cutting off your nose to spite your face". Hey field, we are going to give you that Audi R-8 5.2 you always wanted. Nah, I don't think I will take it, it has a Bang & Olufsen sound system and I wanted the Burmester. Bobby, trust me on this one, do like your republican colleagues in Florida and California and take the money. The way things look from here you don't eat too much, but there are plenty folks in your state who can't afford to miss a meal.

The next "foolish talker" is one Jim Bunning. (What the hell has gotten into republican senators lately?) This genius actually told a group of supporters that Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader-Ginsberg should die in nine months from her pancreatic cancer. "Bad cancer. The kind that you don't get better from.." This, apparently, was reason enough for his supporters to hold out hope to get a conservative judge on the bench, soon. Here is a news flash for you Jim: the president who will be making that selection is one Barack Hussein Obama, so not only are you an insensitive jerk, but you are an ignorant one as well.

And finally, there is Alan Keyes. There are people who talk foolish and do foolish things, but we don't mind them living among us, the sane. Not my friend Alan, who --and I mean this sincerely--should be locked away in an insane asylum far far away from the rest of us.

It's Oscar night and I honestly don't really care who wins any of the golden statues. I don't have a dog in this fight. I saw a couple of the pics that were nominated and I am not really feeling any of them. (What exactly is a "slum dog"?)

Still, I have my own list of winners, and in the field's world this is how they would shake out:

1. BEST ACTOR: George W. Bush- For his great job of pretending to be a President for the past eight years.

2. BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Karl Rove-(Karl barely edged out Rupert Murdoch for this one. )

3. BEST ACTRESS: Lark Voorhies-For her tour de force role as herself in the field's fantasies.

4. BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Condoleezza Rice- It was close between Condi and Hillary. Hillary has a greater body of work, (for her role as the loving wife to slick Willie all these years) but Condi, just for this past year, gets the nod.

5. BEST DIRECTOR: Dick Cheney- For his brilliant role in orchestrating and directing the Iraq War. I know it was a dud at the box office, (too much money sunk into making it happen)but you have got to love the guys passion for his work.

6. BEST PICTURE: Barack Obama's"Change We Can Believe In". Talk about a hit. This one was packing them in from coast to coast. Now let's see if there will be a sequel.

Post racial diversity?

With all due respect to "Young Jeezy", your President might be black, but his press office is not.

Well, that is unless you count Bill Burton (the guy on the left in the pic) who considers himself bi-racial thanks to a black father.

Who knew?

"When a list of members of the White House press office appeared to show that no African American professionals worked there, a press assistant fielded a call asking if that were indeed the case. She said yes, not realizing that one of her own bosses, White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, has a black father and white mother.

'I am biracial, that's right,' Burton, 31, told Journal-isms on Tuesday. 'Though I find it interesting that you ask only if I 'consider' myself biracial and not if I am.'
Burton's ethnicity, a surprise to many who have worked with or covered him through the long Obama campaign and into the White House, has surfaced only
sporadically as a subject in a meteoric career that includes service as communications director for the 2004 presidential campaign of Rep. Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., for that of John Kerry, also in 2004, as national press secretary for Sen. Barack Obama, and now as deputy White House press secretary. His race is usually ignored.

'I had NO idea and I used to see him everyday,' one African American Obama campaign worker said. "I'm as good as any of us in 'detecting' the mixed among us and I had no clue. He looks totally white!"

The same White House press assistant assured a caller last week that Burton was not African American and said she was sure because she had known him for some time.
Burton's ethnicity became a subject of more than idle curiosity after Press Secretary Robert Gibbs released a list last week of the press-office staff, as this column
reported then.
Even accounting for Burton, some were concerned. 'I got an e-mail Tuesday listing all of the various press folks and contact information, and hardly any African-Americans or Hispanics were listed,' commentator Roland Martin
said on CNN. 'Granted, the deputy press secretary is African-American and the director of broadcast media is Hispanic. That's not sufficient.
"Unfortunately, this shouldn't come as a shock, because the campaign press staff of then-Sen. Barack Obama was just as weak on diversity.'

Martin repeated his position in his Creators Syndicate newspaper column.
He noted that staff members often rise to the key posts of press secretaries for entire departments and for the White House itself, and that Obama had articulated a commitment to diversity. White House staffers also decide which reporters are admitted to news conferences and which are called upon. Though there continues to be outreach to journalists of color in other venues — Obama gave an
interview just this week to Black Enterprise magazine — it took six post-election news conferences before a black or Hispanic reporter had access to the microphone for questions..."

Well damn Mr. Burton, you fooled a black co-worker for that long? You must be better at this passe blanc thing than most. I just hope that you don't have a black granny hiding away somewhere that you are ashamed of.

Bit hat/tip to Richard Prince from the Maynard Institute. I lifted the article from him.

How low can they go?

Any Negro in A-merry-ca caught reading the news paper in that picture should be taken away by the "Drop Squad", forthwith. In fact, any A-merry-can caught paying for that waste of ink to do anything other than to clean up a spill or put it at the bottom of their bird cage ought to have their heads examined.

The Post showed poor taste and pissed me off with their dead monkey cartoon, but just when you think that they couldn't go any lower, they do.

Criticizing the Governor of New York for not being able to do his job because he is blind, is despicable behavior, even for a rag belonging to that poor excuse for a human being, Rupert Murdoch. Hey look, I don't live in New York, and I really don't know what kind of job the guy is doing. From all accounts he ain't doing so great. But I got a news flash for the folks over at the post: there are a lot of political leaders with 20/20 vision who are doing a pretty good job of fucking up our country. Singling out someone for criticism because of their disability is beyond the pale. Even for the Post.

I saw where Saturday Night Live did a parody of him, and I honestly was not as offended as much as some people were by that. I know that it was in poor taste, but it didn't send up my pissed off meter as maybe it should have. This, on the other hand, did.

Today Albany teeters on bankruptcy,.....Paterson's blindness severely constricts his ability to acquire basic information. His administration is adrift; he is inconsistent, imprecise and often contradictory in his public statements. To put it bluntly, the governor needs competent help.”

No, "to put it bluntly", you folks over at the Post are a bunch of morons!

So Eric Holder thinks that we are cowards here in A-merry-ca because we don't talk openly about race. (The guy obviously doesn't ever come to this site) And of course every red blooded white A-merry-can took offense; some more than others. If you didn't happen to catch the shout fest between Pat Buchanan and Michael Eric Dyson on "Hardball" tonight you missed a real treat. For a moment there I thought Pat was going to drop the "N" word, I sure know he was thinking it. (*How many of you Negroes can look at a white person and just tell when he/she wants to call you the"N" word? Raise your hands.*) Say what you want about Pat, at least he seems to be pretty honest about his feelings on race. Now there is a guy I could start a dialogue with. Eric Holder was not talking about the Pat Buchanans of the world. He knows just how he feels about black folks, and he doesn't seem to have any illusions about it. I like that.

Now Lorie Byrd, on the other hand, not so much.

See Lorie is your typical misguided conservative. I will try not to be too hard on her because she is a Tigers fan like moi. Still, her recent post on Wizbang about Holder's comments was sad but not surprising. She thinks individual black people achieving in business and politics is a fair measuring stick of how far A-merry-ca has come on matters of race. As if every time she sees a black woman she sees Condi or Oprah, and every time she sees a black man she sees Obama or Will. The anecdote about her daughter and her black playmate....well here, read for yourself:

Eric Holder, the nation's first black attorney general, said Wednesday the United States was "a nation of cowards" on matters of race, with most Americans avoiding candid discussions of racial issues. In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," Holder said.
Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, but "we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race."
Maybe one day we will know Americans are no longer cowards on race if they pass a law to protect the civil rights of minorities.

Or a black woman becomes one of the most successful businesswomen in America.
Or if a
black man or woman can serve as secretary of state.
Or if one day they elect a black American to the highest office in the land.
Or if a black man can serve as attorney general, Eric Holder.

Of course all those things have happened already. But Holder is talking not so much about concrete progress made by minorities, but about how Americans discuss race and how they choose to associate in their private lives. Make of that what you will, but when someone in the government starts worrying about who I choose as my friends, I get worried that they are way deeper in my business than I care for them to be.

Update: It just occurred to me that while I was writing this post my daughter was in her room playing with the little girl who lives across the street -- who just happens to be black. The fact that it did not even occur to me until now, in my opinion, is more indicative of progress. Would you prefer to live in a country where you associated with those of other races without even thinking about it, or a country in which race was always on your mind and discussed at every opportunity. I know which America I choose and it is quite apparent which one Attorney General Holder would prefer. I guess in his book that makes me a coward.
Update II:
Michelle Malkin talks about real race cowards.

Funny. When I think of racial cowards, I think of Barack Obama at Jeremiah Wright's church, sitting there week after week, year after year, saying nothing about the separatist demagoguery echoing from the pulpit to the pews.

When I think of racial cowards, I think of all the navel-gazers who fret about poisonous racial dialogue, but say nothing about "My President Is Black" bigotry...
...Holder doesn't want an honest dialogue about race. In the Age of Obama, "talking enough with each other about race" means the rest of us shutting up while being subjected to lectures about our insensitivity and insufficient integration on the weekends.
Allahpundit points out that Obama could have talked more about race during the campaign if he wanted to, but the Jeremiah Wright made that hard to do.

I didn't think about this when I first posted, but what does it say about Democrats/liberals who won't allow black Americans to identify themselves as conservatives or Republicans without calling them derogatory names? I guess it could be considered cowardice that so many liberals are afraid of and threatened by black conservatives who flee the liberal Democrat plantation."

Hmmm, did she write "black conservatives who flee the liberal Democrat plantation"? Nice try Lorie, but the last time I checked; the big house was still a part of the plantation.

Monkeys,Politics, and Pets.


Not since the last King Kong movie has our primate friends gotten so much ink in one day. The header above pretty much sums it up.

I am sure everyone has heard by now, written about, or voiced their opinion about the New York Post cartoon allegedly depicting the author of the stimulus bill as a dead monkey. Tsk tsk tsk.

Honestly, I wasn't even going to blog about this monkey, I was going to blog about the other one in Connecticut. But so many folks e-mailed me about this story that I felt compelled to say a few words. I guess this cartoonist, Sean Delonas, was trying to link the two stories in his own sick demented way, (I swear I will never understand the conservative mind. More on that later ) but judging from the outcry from black folks and certain progressives in the majority population, it doesn't look like it went over too well. Travis the chimp was shot in cold blood in front of his owner. (Poor Travis, his owner adopted and raised the big guy like he was her own. She had him for 15 years, and then she had to put the big guy down. "He looked at me like, 'Mom, what did you do?".....I am going to leave this one alone, but you all know what I want to say right?) and there was Travis in the cartoon, full of bullet holes and looking very much dead. But where is the outrage from all my pet loving friends in A-merry-ca? Where is PETA? I guess if you are a big black brute of a pet all bets are off. But was Delonas trying to connect Travis to something far more sinister and offensive, or was he just using Travis to make a political point? (Oh come on field, why would you think he is trying to link Obama to a chimp? It's not like he looks like Patrick Ewing or anything....)

You black folks are losing your natural minds, because you have no doubt what Delonas was trying to do. But my question to you all would be this: why are you surprised? Let me explain something to you: this rag is owned by my man Rupert. It is his paper version of FAKE NEWS, an outfit that I have been screaming about from day one. Some of you believe that my outrage at all things FOX is misguided, that I spend too much time lamenting about the not too subtle racism, and unvarnished journalistic bias over there. So let me ask you; do you still believe that Rupert's organization should be ignored?

Now of course, Sean's defenders and the republicans among us will tell you that this imagery had nothing to do with race, that Sean was just making a point about how stupid the stimulus bill is and that it must have been done by someone as dumb as a monkey. (Don't be so sensitive field, Obama didn't even draw up the stimulus bill. Besides, didn't you and your "moonbat" friends call George Bush a chimp and other nasty names? ) Ahh nope, not me, I would never insult a chimp's intelligence like that. But I get the point; what's good for the goose is good for the O man. So if the Post wanted controversy they got their wish. Race, politics, and violence. You can't beat that trifecta.

Of course Rev. Inc. is all over this. He is outraged and he wants an apology. Yeah okay Rev. But you will be in FOX tomorrow debating with them and helping their ratings by bloviating and showing off your wonderful perm. Totally forgetting, of course, that the paper that published the offensive cartoon and the television station that you loved to star on are owned by the same unscrupulous people.

Now to the conservative mind I told you about: I see where Michelle Malkin posed with "swastika man" and she thinks that shit is funny. See it wasn't just a swastika, it was a swastika surrounded by an "O" intended to make fun of the president. So in Michelle's world and other conservatives like her,that's cool. Forget the offensive imagery, it's all about her political statement. So the swastika, which represents a horrible time in the world's history, is just a silly side bar. Nice.

Oh well, it could have been worse I guess. She could have posed with a man holding a swastika dressed in a monkey suit.

*That pic was taken from a racist website (I think one of my racist pen pals sent it to me to make a point). And it is in no way meant to offend my man Patrick who happens to be a fellow yawdie.

Greta's World.

I know Greta Van Susteren didn't just question why Barack Hussein Obama had to fly on Air Force One to Colorado today. Yep, that was her telling Rudy on her T.V. show tonight that the president should not have used tax payor's money to fly all the way to Denver to sign the stimulus bill. Nope, she wants his O ness to practice what he preaches. Yeah Barack, hop your black ass on Greyhound like all the other Negroes in A-merry-ca when they want to get from point A to point B.

And let me say a few words about Ms. Van Susteren: If you want another reason to hate lawyers, Greta does not disappoint. This former criminal defense lawyer actually made her bones playing the defense side on national television during the O.J. trials. (Yes, another nobody made somebody thanks to O.J.) Her daddy was a good friend, law school buddy, and campaign manager to the infamous commie chaser, Joseph McCarthy, so it isn't surprising that she ended up with the FAKE NEWS people. Of course her own daddy wouldn't know her now, thanks to some serious "Nip/Tuck" real life version. Yes, Greta has been under more knives than a dinner napkin. But I am not going to hold that against her. What I will hold against her is the faux journalism passive aggressive bull shit she pulls every night to millions of viewers. Thing is, I can't really figure out if Greta does it out of true blue convictions or the money. I am guessing that Greta does it for the money. Nothing about Greta says conviction to me.

"Is there any harm to this? I mean is there a chance that this will work? I mean... good Americans, we'd love to have it work. It's just that it scares most of us to think that you vote on something you've never read or you make up the numbers. It doesn't give us a whole sense of security, but I there is any harm in this bill?" Bullshit Greta! You don't want this bill to work anymore than you want your plastic surgeon to stop cutting. If it works, you will have egg on your face, and what will you do then? A-merry-ca can only take so many Sarah Palin interviews.

Oh, and did I mention that Greta has a blog? Yes she does. But unfortunately, it seems Greta has a problem keeping a certain element from her site. Greta, that's a problem you could fix tomorrow. Just get on the air and write a post on your blog about the truth. Tell the minions who watch you on FAKE NEWS and read your blog that they have all been hoodwinked. Tell them that you are only doing what you do to cash Rupert's checks, and that you could care less what happens to A-merry-ca. Of course you would get kicked off the FAKE NEWS network, but so what? You have made more than enough money off of those clowns. And honestly, we have seen and heard more than enough of you.

Dorothy, aren't you glad you are not in Kansas anymore?

If you happen to live in Kansas and you were planning on how you were going to spend your state refund check, don't head to the lay away section at your local Wal-Mart just yet. Unfortunately, you won't be getting a check this year. Yes folks, like so many other states in A-merry-ca, Kansas is out of money. And not only will its fine citizens have their refund checks suspended, but apparently, their state workers might not even be getting paid.

Come on field, why do you care what happens in Kansas? Because what is happening in Kansas is indicative of what is happening all over the country. It's happening in California, it's happening in Michigan, and it's happening right here in Pennsylvania. States are in trouble, they are all being forced to make tough choices, and their books are all in the red. To say these are tough times would be an understatement. We are in deep do do, and this seems to be just the tip of the iceberg.

Every time I think about the dire straits that we are in, I reflect on those days under the frat boy, (oh boy here comes field with the "W" bashing again) when he took us into an unnecessary war and shattered our A-merry-can dream; not to mention our children's future. The Bialystocks (that would be the republicans, as in Max Bialystock from "The Producers". Think about it) are bitching and moaning about 700 billion dollars for the stimulus package, but they had no problem with almost three trillion dollars for Iraq. Can you imagine what a trillion dollars would do for the folks in Kansas, California, Michigan, and Pennsylvania right about now? I can, but we can only wish. That money is long gone. The frat boy and his buddies would like to thank you for that. I bet they aren't feeling the recession.

Bastards! I wish they all lived in Kansas.

The Soft Negro.

Aaron Schock is a young republican congressman from the O man's home state, and his O ness recently wined and dined the young politician hoping to charm him into a spirit of bipartisanship. It didn't work. He even flew the little ingrate on Air Force One. But that didn't work either. What did you expect? The little weasel is, after all, a republican. Honestly, is it just me, or does it seems like everyone and their mama knows that it's wrong to try to play ball with he rethugs except his O ness? (What the hell were you thinking when you picked Judd Gregg for Commerce?)

Look, I know it worked in the elections. A-merry-cans vote from the middle, and they wanted their president to be someone who was willing to reach out to the other side. So in order to get that independent vote, the O man was Mr. Congeniality. The smooth talking negotiator who would change the tone in Washington. Most A-merry-cans saw him that way, and that's how they voted. But it's time to put the bully back into the bully pulpit. Stop playing the soft Negro role, and get Kingston 12 or "medieval" on their ass.

This is A-merry-ca damn it, and the last time I checked we have a two party system of governing here. Two different political schools of thought of how things should get done. People get on Nancy Pelosi, but at least she understands that you can't reach out to the wingnuts on the right. The O man might be as great persuader, but he ain't that good. If he was, he would have gotten at least one republican to vote for his stimulus package. He failed to understand that republicans, especially the ones in Washington, were all elected from very red states, and they ain't voting with the "One" no matter how many plane rides he gives them. The rethugs in Washington aren't there because of independent voters, and moderates, they are there because they were voted in by people from very red states and districts. They want to go back to Washington, so what do you think they are going to do?

If Obama was off to a rocky start it's because he tried to be too bipartisan. He tried to compromises with folks who don't understand the meaning of the word. He failed to see just how partisan they really are. Their blinders are thick, and their hearts are hardened. At this point the wingnuts on talk radio, reich wing blogs, and on FAKE NEWS, are their only constituents, and all the plane rides in the world won't change that.

“I like the President. He’s a very good guy . . . I want him to be successful. I want to vote for a stimulus bill. I appreciated his hospitality in bringing me along on the trip. . . . But at the end of the day my responsibility is to the people who gave me this job – my constituents,”

You hear that Obama? It's politics as usual. These people don't believe in compromises. Not with a "Socialist". Not with a man with a name like Barack Hussein Obama. Their peeps would never send them back to Washington.

So take it from the field, just put your head down,block out all the noise, and do your thing. Don't apologize for your victories, and don't hold your had down when you are defeated. You are the president damn it, start acting like it.

"The problem is all inside your head, she said to me The answer is easy if you take it logically I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free There must be fifty ways to leave your lover She said it's really not my habit to intrude Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude There must be fifty ways to leave your lover Fifty ways to leave your lover" ~~Paul Simon~~
I know that's not exactly a Valentine's (If I hear one of my cousins say Valen-times one more time I will scream) Day song for you romantically inclined, but it's the best one I could think of under the circumstances.

See it's like this: While eating out with the lovely Mrs. Field, earlier,--- in a restaurant where I had to pay half the cost of the Stimulus Package for the damn entree---I had a very interesting and chilly discussion prompted by me making the serious mistake of ordering first. Mrs. Field said that if we were still dating that would have probably been a second date killer. "Field, never ever ever order before your date, it's selfish and impolite. I thought you knew that." Actually I did know that, but being married too long can make you lazy.

Anywhooo, Mrs. Field went into a long litany of things that can be a second date killer for black women. It might not have been fifty ( I will give you twenty), and it's not ways to lose your lover, it's ways that your lover will lose you. My melanin challenged friends, please hang with me on this one, these do's and don'ts primarily apply to the brothers and sisters among us, although I suspect that some of them might be universal. So here are some of the rules outlined by Mrs. Field (she swears that they are sister universal) for you brothers who want to make a love connection.

1. Do not expect your date to pay a dime on your first five dates. After five, the conventional wisdom is that you will know each other well enough for her to offer to pick up a tip, pay the cab fare, or the cost of two movie tickets. And make sure you know what type of food she likes before you make those reservations. Might not be cool to take her to a sea food restaurant if she is allergic to sea food.
2. Do make sure you tell her the type of date it is so that she won't be over or under dressed. If she asks you what you are wearing, be honest. Don't say just some jeans and a nice shirt and show up in a three button suit.

3. Do not flirt with the waitress. I don't care if she is a dead ringer for Nia Long with a Toni Braxton body. Look away my brothers, look away.

4. Do leave a nice tip. (On the East Coast that's 20 to 25%) women hate small tippers.
5. Do not order before her. ( This is the one that started this discussion)

6. Listen listen listen. Talk about yourself only if she asks.

7. Turn your cell phone off before you pull up to her door. And if it's on and it happens to ring, YOU MUST ANSWER IT. Once you answer it, make sure to keep the conversation very short.

8. Do not go to a restaurant where you are well known, or where you have been with other dates. The hostess mistaking your date for the last one is not cool.
9. Do not go to a fast food restaurant on your first date. Now I know this one seems a bit obvious but some of you brothers are a trip. Believe me, it needs to be said.

10. If the *usher (host,hostess, Maitre De. *"Lyrical Soul" caught me slipping with the church reference) seats you close to the kitchen ask for another seat, even if you have to wait a little longer. Trust me on this one.

11. On your first date, remember, only a hug goodnight. No more. Brothers, I know it can be hard sometimes, but believe me, if your date went well, there will be lots more to come later. A sister knows the moment she lays eyes on you if she is going to give you some. It might take awhile, or not so long, but if she is going to give you some only you can ruin it for yourself.

12. No flowers on the first date. In fact, no flowers on the second or third date, unless, of course, she tells you that she really loves flowers. Or unless your date happens to fall on Valentines Day or her birthday.

13. I shouldn't have to tell you this, but I will. Make sure she is inside her house before you drive off.

14. Call her the next day to make sure she is alright and is not suffering from major food poisoning from the sword fish she ate at the fancy sea food restaurant you took her to.
15. Oh, and speaking of fancy restaurants, please at least have a clue about what is fancy and what is not. Do not tell her that you are taking her to this really fancy place in town and pull up at "Red Lobster". Your ears will be ringing for a long time from girlfriend talking about you to her friends.

16. Make sure your grooming is tight. Your nails should be clean, just enough cologne, (not too much like some of my Af... never mind, just don't over do it with the cologne.) and an outfit that you really feel comfortable in.
17. Now this next one is tricky: The car door dilemma. Do you or do you not open her car door? I could do an entire post on this one. As a rule, you should probably hop around and get her door on your first couple of dates. Quite a few women will just get it themselves, and not be offended. Some , on the other hand, will expect you to get the door, and will be offended if you don't. This is one of those deals where you will just have to get a feel for your subject. Now in inclement weather you ALWAYS get the door. And if you are approaching the car from her side you ALWAYS get the door as well.

18. Don't take your date to a play unless you know that she likes plays. Don't take her to an art gallery unless she tells you that she loves to go to art galleries. And don't take her to an NBA game unless she tells you that she just loves basketball. And even then, you should probably wait until you are deeper into your relationship before you take her to see AI at the Wachovia Center.

19. Do not improvise on the first couple of dates, if you tell her it's dinner and a movie, make sure it's dinner and a movie. Not dinner, a movie, and stop by my boy Pookie's house for a card game. That's not cool.

20. Finally, and I know that this is hard for you colored folks. But be on time! If you tell her you are picking her up at 7:00PM, pick her up at 7:00PM. If you have to wait on her that's fine, just make sure that your ass is on time. Did I mention listen listen listen?

Now follow these simple rules my brothers and next Valentine's Day you will be sending the field a thank you card. Or, better yet, a wedding invitation. :)

Sorry Elgin, not this time.

Every now and then I read about a story that pretty much knocks me out of my chair. The latest in my da hell were you thinking hall of fame, involves one Elgin Baylor, the former general manager of the woeful Los Angeles Clippers basketball franchise.

Now this Negro done went and sued the Clippers for employment discrimination and had the nerve to say that he was terminated because of his age and his race. Baylor was the GM and VP of basketball operations for 22 years in La la land, and under his tenure the Clippers played 500 basketball twice. Yes, that's right, they won half of their games twice in 22 years. And during that time they won exactly one, yes ONE playoff game. Not playoff series; but playoff game.

Elgin, my only questions to the Clippers would be why did it take so long to fire your ass? Honestly Elgin, you should have been fired 20 years ago. I know times are hard and your lawyers want to eat, but Carl Douglas (remember him from the O.J. trial?) ought to get real. He is obviously not a basketball fan, because if he was, he would have laughed you right out of his office when you mentioned the "s" word.

But this is what's wrong in A-merry-ca. We have Negroes like Elgin using the race card to spend on frivolous shit. So now the race card is damned near maxed out, and when we need it to make purchases that we really need, we are told that we don't have enough on that bad boy. (Officer, what do you mean I can't use my race card because you pulled me over to check my registration and not the five white guys who were driving in front of me? Sorry Mr. Field, your race card is over the limit. Damn that Elgin Baylor!)

Elgin, Donald Sterling might have been a bad owner.....wait I take that back, he is a bad owner, and he might even be a racist one. And there might have been a culture and atmosphere of racism around Clipper land as you suggest. But that doesn't excuse 20 losing seasons out of 22. It just doesn't. And why did it take 22 years and you getting fired to realize that there was a racist atmosphere in your workplace, Elgin?

Sorry Elgin, I am not buying it, and I hope the courts don't buy it either.

Uncomfortable truths.

"..More problematic were Lincoln’s views on race. He held opinions not very different from those of the majority of his racist countrymen. Even if slavery was wrong, “there is a physical difference between the white and black races that will for ever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality.” His solution was a form of ethnic cleansing: shipping blacks off to Liberia, or Haiti, or Central America — anywhere as long as it wasn’t the United States." ~~Barry Gewen~~ writing the review of the excellent book "Big Enough To Be Inconsistent" for the New York Times.

As we celebrate what would be the 200th birthday of the "great emancipator", it's always nice to understand that he wanted to emancipate us not because he thought we were his equal, but because he thought it was the legal thing to do, and the best thing for the Union. Unfortunately, Lincoln, like most of his peers and the people of his time, was a racist.

Still, we love the man, and abstruse as it may seem, that love might be justified. That, my friends, is and always has been, one of the greatest examples of this complex dance that we do with race here in our beloved A-merry-ca. To listen to our first African A-merry-can president praise Lincoln today, while knowing that Lincoln would never have approved of him sleeping in the house that was built for him---- and others like him, was surreal.

If you believe Lerone Bennett's, thesis (read his book Forced Into Glory:Abraham Lincoln's White Dream", when you get a chance) the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 was not so much Lincoln's doing but that of the abolitionist wing of his party. And Lincoln, ever the politician, carefully worded the document so that it did not free a single slave. Bennett argues that Lincoln put forth plans to deport slaves back to Africa before and during the time that he was president.

These are uncomfortable truths. But A-merry-ca is full of them. And the more uncomfortable they are the farther we push them away from our collective consciousness. What would we do with the names of all those building, school, towns, and streets if our perception of the great emancipator ever changed? How could we live with ourselves if "honest Abe" wasn't the paradigm of virtue we hold him up to be? We couldn't, and so we must memorialize the good, and pretend that the bad never happened. Our new president certainly loves number 16, and he has done so much to evoke his memory.

Lincoln would have been 200 today, and I hope that he would have been proud to see his beloved republic. It isn't a perfect union, but it sure is a more perfect one than the one he knew. There is no reason to think he would not. I would like to think that at some point in his 200 years he would have grown as a human being and learned to see us as equals. We would have long been free and afforded the same rights as he has. Would he have embraced the change? Or would he be typical of those who dominate his party today?

"Let us remember that we are doing so as servants to the same flag, as representatives of the same people, and as stakeholders in a common future....That is the most fitting tribute we can pay and the most lasting monument we can build to that most remarkable of men, Abraham Lincoln."

Yes Mr. President, he was remarkable alright, and so are you for saying that.

Black folks and mutts.

Like I wasn't going to blog about this story.

First, let me say congratulations to "Stump" for winning the Super Bowl of dog shows up in New Yaawk. It couldn't have happened to a nicer Sussex spaniel. Yes folks, Uno's reign as the top dog is over.

Now a few words about my friends over at PETA: (Which I think stands for people for the ethical treatment of animals.) I know that black suffering is pretty much at the bottom of things that you are concerned about, given that there are so many poor little animals out there you have to advocate for. But it is not cool to dress in KKK garb in the middle of New York city to make a point about your four legged friends. It's just not. People have been lynched, burned, and hung by that white christian militia, and you trivialize their memory and their suffering with your poor choice of a costume for your protest.

But I told you Negroes where you stand on the food chain here in A-merry-ca. Do you really think that there could be a PETOBF (That would be people for the ethical treatment of black folks) protesting outside NFL and NBA games because they think the league is exploiting young black bucks for profit and entertainment? I don't! PETA is mad at AKC (All these acronyms. That's the American Kennel Club) for promoting the breeding of a "master race" of pooches. See the comparison? The KKK wanted a "master race" and so did the AKC. Wow, it's so simple when you break it down. I guess pretty soon "Stump" and his friends are going to burn down all those kennels where they keep stray dogs. Folks, hide your mutts, you wouldn't want them to be burned out of their dog house. (Look mommy there is a tiny cross on the lawn. Damn it, it's those damn dogs from the AKC again)

Let me stop, this shit isn't funny. There are some really twisted folks running PETA these days. And frankly, I am glad I wasn't up in New York to witness this shit, because I might have been very unethical in my treatment of those two clowns in front of the Garden.

"Obviously it's an uncomfortable comparison," PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the Associated Press.

"Uncomfortable"? Is that what we are calling ignorant and insensitive these days? "Uncomfortable"? Nice. But this too will pass. I guess if PETA wanted to bring attention to their cause, this was a pretty good way to do it. If you look at it that way, I guess we could say mission accomplished. Now A-merry-ca, thanks to the use of some very offensive imagery, is aware of the AKC and their quest for a "master [pooch] race".

As a black person in A-merry-ca, let me be the first to tell PETA that I am glad we could help.

This is nothing a little prayer can't solve.

Ahhh the A-merry-can religious right, they are so persecuted and misunderstood here in the land of the free.

Consider poor Mike Huckabee: the man is already complaining that the "Stimulus Package" is "anti religious". Yes he really said that. Apparently Mike doesn't like some of the language in the bill which bans higher education funds from being used where divinity is being taught.

“You would think the ACLU drafted this bill... For all of the talk about bipartisanship, this Congress is blatantly liberal.”

We can only wish there Mike, but unfortunately they are not liberal enough. Now keep in mind folks, this is a man who almost became your president. This is a man who was and still is a major player in a major political party in this country. And his biggest problem with a plan that is the most important piece of economic legislation in our country's history is that divinity schools could not get funding. And Mike is not alone, quite a few conservatives are up in arms over the religious bigotry found in the O man's bill.

Now I want to be fair to Mike; maybe he knows something what we all don't. Maybe divine intervention is the only thing that will get us out of this mess, and if it is, we can't piss off the big guy by preventing funding from going to his schools. Maybe we should have put a few billion dollars in the package just for all things divine. Commission a group to study and to find the folks who could send up the best prayers here in A-merry-ca. We could get a team of religious experts (interfaith of course) and they could start a kind of "Manhattan Project" centered around prayers instead of bombs. Can you imagine the possibilities? All this wrangling back and forth over something as simple as money when the man [or woman] who created this whole "shibang" could just click his [her] fingers and it would be over. And since A-merry-ca is his [her] country here in earth. The one country that was created in his [her] own image, I am sure he [she] would have no problem hooking us up.

Why don't we listen to these religious conservatives more? Our problems would be so easily solved if we would just listen.

Oh well, I am sure Mike will run for president soon again. If he does, there is no way the big guy will make him lose. The next time A-merry-ca will definitely get it right. This is all just a test of our will to see if we can truly appreciate how blessed we are.

Thank you Mike, and please thank the big guy for me. I know he answers your prayers. And I can't wait for you to become our president so that he can answer mine.

The "S" word.

"The stimulus package". It sounds like the name of a bad porn movie, but it's all you hear about in A-merry-ca these days. The O man wants it so bad he can taste it. Just a few weeks into his presidency and he is throwing the weight of his presidential bully pulpit into getting it passed. If you believe his O ness and his peeps, it's 800 billion dollars that we cannot afford to go without in these dire times. We need it for jobs, jobs, jobs. If you believe the rethugs, it's just more of the same government spending of our money. "You can't spend your way out of a recession", they scream. I told you that this Obama was a Socialist. It's a modern day version of the New Deal, which will only prolong the recession and turn A-merry-ca into a big government spending Socialist state. Government can't correct this problem, it must correct itself. So jobs are going to be lost, it's what happens in a democracy. This is what we are hearing from the right, and they have their so called experts who are not shy about espousing that position. But no matter who you believe, or where you come down in this debate, there is no denying the importance of what this stimulus package means to our future.

Well field who do you believe? Well, I will give you a hint: it ain't the folks who have been in charge for the past eight years and put us into this mess. And since I consider myself a democratic Socialist of sorts, you better believe I that am not down with the economic philosophy that says give the rich guy the tax breaks and he will give us jobs. We tried that, and it didn't work, remember? Yeah, I think I am going with the school of thought that says government has to inject money into the economy in order to fund start up programs and projects which have the capital to hire people. When people have jobs they spend money, it's that simple. When rich people get tax breaks they don't necessarily give people jobs. And right now, more than anything else, we need jobs in A-merry-ca.

I hear that his O ness did a little tour of Indiana today, and tonight he had a press conference to once again let the A-merry-can public know how important this bill is. I say it's about time. "Stimulus package" has become more and more of a dirty word in A-merry-ca, and support for the package has been diminishing. The folks on the right have been winning the PR war and even some dumbocratic poli-tricksters have been running scared.

It's hard to believe that with unemployment at seven percent in most places and up to ten percent in places like Michigan that rethugs could be winning shit. But such is the power of partisanship. And I know that his O ness swept into office promising change, but his ass better consider the politics of old for a minute and start embracing his base, and the so called progressives in this country who put him in power. I have some news for the O man; these folks are never going to be with him. There are fundamental differences in the way that they believe government should be run. We tried it there way and we got screwed. We elected you to try it our way. Stop pandering to the clowns in Washington and start talking to the A-merry-can people. Stop trying to cut things out of the stimulus package and start putting more things into that bitch.
So man up O man, because if when the next election rolls around people still don't have jobs, you can kiss the White House and all those helicopter rides good bye.

Wait just a cotton picking minute!

What the hell is going on down there in Mississippi?
Do you believe this shit? In celebration of Black History Month, a Mississippi grade school was actually going to have a cotton picking day. And to make it worse, some of the elementary school students at Lillie Burney Elementary School of Hatteisburg were going to actually dress as slaves.
Thank goodness for Roy Coleman who was so upset about the whole idea of a Cotton Picking Day celebration that he actually made a real stink about it, and forced the school to reconsider and change the day to a more conventional career day.
Now that sounds better. Teach children about careers instead of how to pick cotton.
The nerve of some of these Southern white folks......but field, it was a predominantly black school doing this. Well I will be damned. Just when you think you catch whitey slipping, it turns out that we are the ones who are teaching our kids that we should be celebrating and memorializing the picking of cotton.
I swear, the age of Obama has me all fucked up.

Say it ain't so Alex.

"I have no respect for Alex Rodriquez. Alex Rodriquez is not the man that people think he is" ~Jose Canseco~

I heard someone say recently that "Jose Canseco is a lot of bad things, but he has never been proven to be a liar." Now it is looking like it's A-Rod, and not Canseco who deserves A-merry-ca's collective wagging finger . Not because he allegedly took steroids in 2003. (Incidentally that was the year he won the American League MVP award) No, A-Rod deserves our scorn because he did a Bill Clinton and lied to our faces about ever taking steroids. He looked Katie Couric and A-merry-ca in the eye and said he never touched the stuff. Now it seems, according to very credible sources, that he did.

Now let me say for the record that if it was a matter of him just taking roids I could care less. It has never bothered me when baseball players take steroids because I just don't think it affects the skills needed to play the game at a higher level that much. Besides, it's their bodies, and if they want to suffer the consequences that come with roiding up at some point in their lives, that's on them. They are big boys who know what's at stake. Any person with a vote for the Hall of Fame who doesn't vote in Barry Bonds and even A- Rod, for that matter, is a stone cold idiot. If you are going to leave someone with the kind of numbers that these guys have (steroids or not) off your ballot when you vote for the Hall you shouldn't have a vote. It's the baseball Hall of Fame, and if there were no rules against steroids in the game when these guys took them, then what's the problem? From what I can see and hear both pitchers and hitters were roiding up back then, and I am guessing that there is a huge iceberg under there that everyone is afraid of.

But field, baseball is A-merry-ca's game and the Hall of Fame is a special place, we can't just let anybody in. Why? We let Ty Cobb's openly racist ass in. Not to mention that boozer, Babe Ruth. And guess what? They both deserved to be there. Just as Bonds, Clemens and A-Rod deserve to be there as well.

But I serioulsy digress, this isn't about baseball skills and how roids affect your ability to play the game. This is about a potential liar and fraud being exposed once again to A-merry-ca for what he truly is.

For the next few days you will be hearing a lot about A-Rod's alleged steroid use, and most A-merry-cans will be shocked that one of the people who they see as one of baseball's golden boys (unless you are a part of Red Sox Nation, of course) could be touched by the evils of steroids.

First Madonna, now this. What's a Yankee and a Yankee fan to do? But as we saw with Michael Phelps recently, our heroes aren't always who they seem to be on the surface.

It's why we loved AI in this town, warts and all. Because he was exactly who we thought he was and he didn't make any bones about it. You might not like what he stood for, but you knew who he was, and what you were going to get from him. Sadly, with guys like A-Rod, you never really know who he is. They are always so packaged and presentable in order not to disappoint the highest bidder. Because here in A-merry-ca, perception is reality, and agents, owners and players all know that.

Oh well, I hope A- Rod can survive the fire storm that's sure to come over the next few days. I hear he is a pretty sensitive guy. Hey, at least he will have Madonna's shoulders to cry on.

Clayton Bigsby Revisited.

Every now and then we get one of these Negroes in A-merry-ca who is such a traitor to his race that you almost want to call the "Drop Squad" in on his ass. Take Jesse Lee Peterson, for instance. This slave catching Negro is such a despicable and reprehensible excuse for a human being that it pains me to even talk about him. But I must, because he is a pawn in a game far more nefarious in nature than his dumb ass even realizes. Ask yourself this: How can a man like Peterson, who speaks like a wino who hasn't slept in days, and whose ability to reason is clearly lacking, manage to be elevated to the status of a national figure and come into the living rooms of millions of A-mery-cans every night? I will tell you how: because the people bringing him into A-merry-ca's living rooms want the Jesse Peterson image and persona to represent how A-merry-ca perceives black folks, that's how. I keep telling you folks that Rupert Murdoch is a dangerous man, but no one listens.

Anyway, read the following excerpt from the fabulous web site' "Newshounds", and tell me what you think of one Jesse Lee Peterson:

"Sean Hannity finally made a show of distancing himself from one of his favorite African American guests, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. During last night's (2/3/09) Hannity, Peterson announced, “I think we all agree that Barack Obama was elected by, mostly by black racists and white guilty people.” Although Hannity professed to be shocked by Peterson's remarks, he has a long history of making such statements in Hannity's presence. Also, Hannity is associated with Peterson's organization, BOND, and gave no indication he would discontinue that association. Furthermore, Peterson is booked tomorrow on FOX & Friends. Will FOX News continue to welcome him? All indications are that they will. With video.

As soon as Peterson had a chance to speak, he launched his racial attack against Obama: 'I think we all agree that Barack Obama was elected by, mostly by black racists and white guilty people. Most black Americans, 96 percent of them, are racists who (unintelligible) white Americans. And white folks feel guilty and they are afraid of being called racists,' Peterson said.

This was too much even for Hannity, who usually tacitly approves Peterson's bigoted rants. This time, Hannity said, 'Do you really believe 96% of black America is racist? You don't believe that. 'Yes, sir,' Peterson answered.

'No, you don't believe that,' Hannity repeated.

OK, so maybe Hannity thinks Peterson believes only 90% of blacks are racist. Because that is exactly the kind of thing that Peterson has been saying for years on Hannity & Colmes, without a peep of objection from Hannity.

For example, last summer, Peterson said about a racially charged primary in Memphis, 'Most blacks, not all but most in Tennessee, especially in the Memphis, Tennessee area, are still living in the 50’s and 60’s. They are so racist that they don’t even realize that white Americans have moved on. And so whenever there’s a campaign like this, such as this, they always use racism in order to intimidate white America.'

Not only did Hannity not interrupt then, he refused to allow the other guest, who was duly outraged, to make a point in opposition.

Similarly, in December, 2006, Peterson told Hannity that it was “commonplace” for blacks to have antagonism against whites, that whites should speak up about it but can't because they'll likely be labeled as racists. Hannity responded by saying, “Always love having you,” to Peterson.

So Hannity's surprise at Peterson's latest attack on black Americans was somewhat suspect. It's especially so given that Peterson's
latest effort, which he hyped later in the show, is the Stop Obama's Socialist Change Tour which lists, as one of its 10 reasons to “fear an Obama Nation:”

Making Dr. King’s Dream A Nightmare—for Black and White. Barack Obama has encouraged black Americans to worship him as a “Messiah”, and is planning to hand out government funds under the guise of a “stimulous package” to those who won’t work (this is the payoff expected by many of his constituents).

Peterson continued with a line that was reminiscent of his 2006 remarks above. 'As we move on, with Barack Obama being in there, you're not going to be able to speak out against him at all unless you, you will be called a racist.'

Hannity, with hammy humor, indicated he did in fact have some concern about being called a racist because he's a white critic of Obama. “So you think – as a chief critic of Obama – Well, I've been called a Nazi and everything else,” he said. Then he added that he thought “97% of Americans are not (racist).” (Comment: I've alleged for years that Hannity is a bigot but not because he criticizes Obama.)

Peterson went on to accuse those who voted for Obama of having done so 'because they have a socialist mentality. If you want to know what socialism looks like, look at the black community.'"

This Negro reminds me of Clayton Bigsby, the black white supremacist character from Dave Chappell's show who doesn't realize he is black because he is blind. Seriously, someone needs to ask Chappelle if he got the inspiration for that character from Ole Jesse. It wouldn't surprise me if he did. The tragedy is that Dave Chappelle's show is supposed to be funny; FOX NEWS, on the other hand, is not.

"Never trust a big butt and a smile".

I love me some Lisa Raye, I really do. I think she is one fine sister. Y'all can keep your Halle Barry, I will take Lisa Raye. At least that's what I used to think, until I read this story. To say this brother, Michael Misick,---the leader of a very lovely Island not far from my own beloved homeland-- went overboard would be an understatement. Talk about whipped. This brother must have have had more than a few bowls of red colored soup served up by Lisa. (You ladies from down the way will know what I am talking about) I mean are you serious? A million dollars for interior design? And a $275,000 shopping spree in a jewelry store? Not to mention the Rolls and two chartered jets. All this on an island with a little over 30,000 people.

But I know what happened to this brother, he caught Lisa Raye in "Players Club", and like me, was hooked. How else do you explain him spending his country's entire GDP on his blushing bride? Talk about high maintenance. The sad thing is that this brother might have gotten in over his head trying to keep Lisa happy, and he subsequently had to dabble in some places where he shouldn't have been. That is where my outrage with the story comes in. Because no matter how much he loved his new bride, he has to remember that he was the Prime Minister of of the Turks & Caicos Islands and his first duty was to the people on his Island who elected his sorry ass. If what is alleged is true--- that he got a personal loan of 6 million dollars from a developer for favors--- he is just another corrupt house Negro politician who once again let his people down. The fact that he was p.....well, whipped, just makes the story funny and sad. And now the Brits are all over his ass. ( I know I know, it's just the white man once again trying to keep a brotha down)

Oh well, all is well that ends well. Take heart fellows, Lisa is back on the market. Apparently the Prime Minister and the first lady have called it splitsville. It just goes to show you that money can buy you a lot of things, even a fine ass Hollywood wife, but it sure can't buy you happiness.

I feel safer already.

“the ultimate threat to the country” is “a 9/11-type event where the terrorists are armed with something much more dangerous than an airline ticket and a box cutter – a nuclear weapon or a biological agent of some kind” that is deployed in the middle of an American city. That’s the one that would involve the deaths of perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, and the one you have to spend a hell of a lot of time guarding against...I think there’s a high probability of such an attempt. Whether or not they can pull it off depends whether or not we keep in place policies that have allowed us to defeat all further attempts, since 9/11, to launch mass-casualty attacks against the United States.”

The first part of that quote from the evil one sounds a lot like wishful thinking to me. Oh come on field, are you trying to say that the former VP of these divided states of A-merry-ca wishes a major terrorist attack could come to our land and kill our fellow citizens just to make the new president look bad? Yep. And not to mention, to validate the despicable abuse of our constitution that took place when he was in power.

Unlike the frat boy Cheney hasn't shut up since he left office. He has been taking on his O ness from day one, and screaming like a baby who lost his favorite toy at the Obama administration for doing away with some of the frat boy's policies as it relates to "the war on terror".

"When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry..”

Dick, you need to worry, because thanks to the actions of your administration there are more of those people "committed" to killing us.

Don't fool yourselves folks, *Cheney[*thanks for the spell check woozie] is praying for an attack. And I suspect that he is not alone. An attack on us now would send the far right into multiple orgasms because it would magnify what in their eyes is one of the few things that the frat boy did right, keep us safe. If I hear that we were never attacked again after 911 thanks to the vigilant frat boy and his minions, I will slap the son of a bitch that says it myself. That is a false argument. We haven't been attacked because the Saudi with the NBA height who happens to be chilling in a cave these days only planned one attack. But let's ask ourselves: whose watch did 911 happen on? If you said the frat boys move to the head of the class. Yes frat boy, you fell asleep at the wheel, so if you were being extra vigilant in trying to protect us it's because you messed up and got some of us killed in the first place.

I know one thing, it doesn't matter who is in office. If Al Qaeda could get a couple of suicide bombers to cooperate, O man or no O man, those bad boys would be going off at a crowded venue near you. So let's continue to hope that we remain safe and protected from the forces of evil. (Not Che-y-ney, we are never safe from him) And let's hope that Hillary and his O ness can do something positive with our foreign policy and create friends instead of enemies around the world.
