Jig alert!


Tiger is in town this weekend, and I am tempted to scoot on over to Aronimink to see what someone who just had to give up almost a billion dollars to his ex, looks like. Dyaaam!

Anyway, barring some last minute bombshell, it looks like Elena Kagan will become one of the supremes. The republicans gave it their best shot, but it wont be enough. (NRA or no NRA, she is pretty much in.) And I know that I wasn't supposed to, but I heard the dog whistles during the process. (And folks wonder why Michael has been on the lawn so long.) And I am sure that the base heard it as well. But be careful Michael, even conservative black folks love Thurgood:

"More than a few of us African Americans are not very liberal. We are born-again Christians, instill a strong work ethic in our children, and are aghast at others who game the system.
Some of us voted for Ronald Reagan in 1984, because he was more optimistic than Walter Mondale; for George Bush the father in 1988, because he was more experienced than Michael Dukakis; and for George Bush the son in 2004, because John Kerry was too elitist.
We wondered why the Republican Party did not encourage Gen. Colin Powell to become the first black president in 2000. Now we know why.

Those of us moderately conservative blacks who enjoy watching Supreme Court confirmation hearings were dismayed last year by the GOP's trashing of Sonia Sotomayor's pep talk to young Latino females (after all, we talk the same way when encouraging our kids toward excellence). But this attack on Thurgood Marshall at Elena Kagan's confirmation hearing is the last straw.

We will not be voting Republican for a very long time, because, to paraphrase Kanye West's Katrina statement, "the GOP don't like people of color."

Rosamond even left an e-mail address, just in case some of his right wing buddies believe that he is a plant.

"This wasn't a surprise. Michael Steele, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, kick-started this bash-Marshall campaign last month by pouncing on Kagan for praising a 1987 Marshall speech in which the ex-justice said the Constitution, "as originally drafted and conceived," was "defective." Marshall had been referring to the Constitution's definition of slaves as three-fifths of "free persons." But Steele's oppo gang at the RNC seized on this and zapped out a memo hammering Kagan: "Does Kagan Still View Constitution 'As Originally Drafted And Conceived' As 'Defective'?'"

Does the lawn still need a jockey"? Yes it does. And, fortunately, thanks to Michael, it still has one.

BREAKING NEWS - Michael Steele has finally given the Republican crackers the "excuse" to throw their HN Chairman under the bus. Steele in his rush to hang a failed "Afghan war strategy" around Obama's neck, made the mistake (during a press conference) of saying that the American involvement in the Afghan war was an "Obama mistake". Immediately after Steele's "gate mouth" flub hit the wire, it was greeted with public outrage and cries from high ranking Republicans for Michael Steele's immediate resignation as Chairman of the RNC. It's all over Mike. It's time to hip hop back to the hood. Maybe Dick Armey needs a black gofer for his "Armey's army" A.K.A. the Tea Party.

Just because you've had multiple kids and you CAN STILL squish you tush into a string bikini....doesn't mean you SHOULD. A gun for an accessory? Class- less.

As for R.Kay...I know the odd black man or woman who did vote for a Rep candidate and may even identify as Rep. But dang. No one I know would openly admit to the below section of that email:

More than a few of us African Americans are not very liberal....
Some of us voted for Ronald Reagan in 1984, because he was more optimistic than Walter Mondale; for George Bush the father in 1988, because he was more experienced than Michael Dukakis; and for George Bush the son in 2004, because John Kerry was too elitist.


At least folks like Kay now know the truth. Now if they cold only learn the truth about the Dems as well.

To paraphrase, Reps and Dems are two wings on the same bird with the teabaggers as the excrement.

Filled Negro:

Put me on RECORD!!!
There are TWO LIVES OF Thurgood Marshall

1) The NAACP lead attorney who's JOB was to work the court system to tear down the walls of Structural Racism


2) Marshall the Supreme Court Justice who as an activist judge sought to PUT THE SYSTEM ON TRIAL and thus brought us the "Justice Thurgood Marshall Justice" that the Black community is SUFFERING from today.

Here is my argument Filled Negro.
As we look at the perplexing problems that our communities are facing today it is clear that more POLITICAL POWER via "favorable elected officials' via the Democratic party HAS NOT PROVEN TO BE THE FIX.

When Marshall took the bench he largely continued his advocacy that he had as an NAACP member yet failed to note his role as an "umpire". While he and Brennan went out of their way to BLOCK CAPITAL PUNISHMENT - finding any technicality to thwart the system - he and the NAACP FAIL TO field a system in the communities that they now controlled which COULD MAINTAIN LAW AND ORDER. Today we have abundant CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS within the Black community with these wanton MURDERS that take place on a daily basis yet the "Civil Rights Pharisees" are NULLIFED in doing ONE DAMNED THING ABOUT IT besides rendering more INDICTMENTS.

I have to blame JUSTICE THURGOOD MARSHAL JUSTICE as a mindset that is responsible for this.

* They protest outside of a Cracker Barrel in the ATL when a WHITE MAN beats up a Black woman yet they don't say a DAMNED THING when 2 Black females are made to strip naked and are SHOT IN THE HEAD just 2 weeks later

* They protest to demand that Troy Davis be freed in Savannah yet they don't say a damned thing about the loads of UNSOLVED MURDERS that remain in Savannah's Black community

The word "Activist Judge" is IRRELEVANT to me.

Thurgood Marshall's style of justice IS NOT THE ONE that is going to fix the problems that our community has TO-DAMNED-DAY.

ONLY WHEN the ESTABLISHMENT FORCE that is in power today are FORCED to bring:

* Peace
* Quality Education
* Economic Opportunity

to our community will anything change.

INSTEAD external Republicans prove to be far more interesting to the "Democrats who are Black" who dominate our racial nucleus consciousness.

Trapped in SC said...

Conservatism thrives on historical lies and revisionism. It gets away with spreading so many historical untruths and lies because most of those who follow them are illiterate. Beck/Hannity/Limbaugh can tell the illiterate herd that there is no sun in the sky and that the light of day comes from America's shining example. Most illiterates won't check those "facts". Who doesn't want to believe their own country is great? When told how fantastic you are, you don't go looking for proof. The ego will accept even unearned flattery. This is where the propaganda and the great miseducation of conservatism comes from.

History under almost any context is never pretty. Humans are flawed. The best we can do in our flawed capacities is to acknowledge these flaws; embrace them then spring forward from them. This path of redemption is not favorable to the weak. The only other route from our flawed existence is to lie.
This is the conservative route and they spin those lies on such a magnanimous scale it gets its illiterate flock to regard the Truth as "hatred". The Truth of American conservatism is especially ugly and tortured. The American conservative tactic of deflection is one of its primary propaganda tools.
Whenever you castigate or expose their hollow and abject philosophy, they immediate deflect to the failures of OTHER histories and ideologies. They do this because American conservatism has no record of its own to stand on. Every decision made in the history of this country and its progress, the conservative has said "NO". That's the entirety of their philosophy and record.

Conservatives claim to be against "big government" while ignoring the obvious tyranny of "big business" (BP is a poignant cautionary tale!). They believe in totalitarian capitalism and the rule of a corporate state. This is fascism. They have convinced the marginalized herd that working to enrich the already obscenely wealthy is good for everyone. Many have bought into this. It is why we can hand $700 Billion of taxpayer dollars to wealthy criminal bankers with nary a peep while getting the herd to scream about helping the unemployed....some of them unemployed themselves!!?? ("Keep your government hands off my MediCare!, Thurgood Marshall was a activist judge!) This is the power of conservative propaganda. It erases history so that people don't know how we came to be who we are, thereby making it easy to take away. It's the same reason why history repeats itself.

That Michael Steele needs to be ARRESTED

[quote]Rosamond Kay: Black Guy here!!

While you have articulated for all of us what the Republicans have done to Black people that has prompted you to vow to never vote for them again - I have a question for you. With the fact that the Democratic Party totally dominates Philadelphia as well as Baltimore, Camden, Trenton, Detroit and in fact any other district where Blacks make up more than 35% of the voting base I wonder if you and any other of my brothers and sisters can articulate What the Democrats could do to LOSE your vote? This appears to me to be the more pressing question that always goes unanswered. With respect to the more key institutions that our community looks toward for our civic services - the Democratic Party seems to have control over them despite our continued grievances.

Not all problems can be solved at one time. The "Brown v Board" was an important tool regarding education it is up to us to use it in a way that would benifit us.

If you are given a key and shown the door that it opens, don't complain because the person was to tired to open it for you.

thanks for this info Field I think Trapped hit the nail on the head, conservatives have no shame and there is no limit to what they will stoop to, to discredit or claim something that's not theirs.

CF you are really out to lunch on this one. Marshall was no revolutionary but he fought gallantly to open doors for black folks and other discredited and underserved people in this country.

While saying you are not a Republican you engaged in the same kind of misinformation campaign. We all owe a debt to Marshall and especially middle class blacks for opening up this society to black folks and making at least more available opportunities that had before hand not been afforded black people.

And calling Marshall an activist judge is a hypocritical charge since conservatives have themselves admitted that they were pushing an agenda, and some of the judges on the present court have pursued a conservative agenda to the point of almost extremism, which in my eyes is activism.

BTW Trapped we are not yet living under fascism. Under fascism we would not have this forum it would be shut down completely as would all free speech. Fascism has a very detailed history which clearly shows that under it the government is absolutely totalitarian and all dissent is disuaded.

Mr I.M. BLACK - isn't this the type of language that BIGOTED, insensitive WHITES said what Blacks should do in the past?


The problem with the debate about Justice Thurgood Marshall (again - I respect the NAACP version of the man) is that as we look at the problems that remain in our community which are:

* Leaving people MURDERED without justice
* Leaving our schools inferior and thus squandering our children's potential
* Destroying our economic base


DESPITE those with the microphone CLAIMING that the same of demon of RACISM is the primary cause as they seek REPARATION (lite), the fact is that this is a problem today with failed HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT.

Mr I.M. Black - the MORE you let them GAIN POWER yet outsource our problems to their external adversaries and thus GAIN MORE POWER in order to fight these enemies - the more you can be sure that the MACHINE that is fighting will be made ore POWERFUL yet the GRIEVANCES that our community has will continue.

I DO NOT HAVE HATRED FOR THURGOOD MARSHALL. I merely see the difference between his two roles in life.

TODAY the Black community needs to be FIELDING A SYSTEM THAT CAN MANAGE OUR HUMAN RESOURCES via the INSTITUTIONS THAT FAVORABLE PEOPLE NOW CONTROL. In my view Marshall's "PUTTING THE SYSTEM ON TRIAL" is the wrong strategy regardless of the case that the present "Civil Rights Pharisees" continue to operate in this fashion.

(Wait until I post the video of the closing day of the SCLC vs SCLC trial going on in Atlanta. You will see the FOOLISHNESS that is conducted in the name of DR KING).

The balance of the "Black Establishment's" focus TODAY is upon the OLD STRUGGLE. WHITE FOLKS suppressing us and them OPENING DOORS.

Your claim of "Social Justice Entitlement" is going to have to take place on the backs of your own community MORE THAN EVER.

My #1 criticism of your ideology is that while it is articulate on RIGHTS - it FAILS MISERABLY TO DEVELOP COMPETENCIES AMONG THE BLACK COMMUNITY, which if developed would strengthen our position and make us less vulnerable to the EVIL RACIST CONSERVATIVES that you live your life to fight.

The truth is (and LACking's words from yesterday convince me of this) that your constant OUTWARD struggle to enforce your "Social CONTRACT" with your fellow citizens in this, your "BELLY OF THE BEAST", Imperialist, Capitalist nation is proof that you realize inside of yourself that BUT FOR THIS NATION - you would perish.

CF you always get this wrong. I have no guilt because I don't owe the system anything and it has only given me back what I have put in. I fight to get human beings their fair share.

And it is the system that is the blood sucker, the parasite, that has its tentacles attached to people and sucks as much labor out of them (and taxes them)without giving them fair compensation in return.

US imperialism is the bloodsucker, along with the other imperialist countries who prevent the so-called developing countries from developing by gansterism. That is they make offers to these countries that they can't refuse and enforce unbalanced trade.

They also force open the doors to these countries for exploitation of their mineral and human wealth by their multinational corporations,while actually encouraging corruption and autocratic governing to enrich their profits. And if they, the capitalists the bloodsuckers are refused they simply send their armies in to take what they want.

NO CF it is the capitalist who suck all the nourishment out of the earth.

I used to wonder why conservative people were so enamored with corporate statism and bought so heavily into it. I finally figured out that it wasn't the philosophy that they were into. It was the fact that they want to be the fat cats in the boardrooms. They want to be the ones riding serenely in black limosines while turning up their noses to the poor. They want to be filthy fucking rich and have the power to pick on and punish poor people with impunity.

So they buy into the propaganda and work their little hindparts off for the corporate statists, in hopes that for all their hard work, the fat cats will crack the door open a little bit and let them in on a piece of the action. It's like having that poster of a Lamborghini Diablo and Vanessa Williams up on your wall. It's a fantasy that you wish would be reality someday, but deep down you know you'll still be rolling in that hoopty, trying to get that girl from around the way to ride to the movies with you.

"Hmmm how come they didn't prevent countries like China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, etc. from developing?"

Simple. Because we LET THEM.

Circa late-1945, the above countries were still a hot mess. Japan had the benefit of a fast expanding industrial base largely spurred by imperialistic drive (and a military bent on conquering any place with a decent amount of natural resources) until Fat Man and Little Boy put an end to all that.

If the U.S. Goverment desired, they could have simply denied them the necessary economic support needed to rebuild and expand.

If that happened, then either the above countries would still be struggling backwaters a la Vietnam, Laos and Burma or struggling to gain an economic footing a la Indonesia.

Or they could have just hit up the Soviets. Then we'd be standing here wondering how the Soviet Union managed to tie up the entire Asian sphere of social, economic and militarial influence. Probably would have made the Cold War that much more interesting.

But really, this is more post than you deserve, so I'll just end things here.

Kathy while there might be rough equivalency between the parties at the national level - the fact remains that WHATEVER "excrement" that one of these parties is excreting - the Black Establishment operatives package it and SELL IT as a key nutrient for advancing the Black race.

I saw on "Animal Planet" today that "Birds Nest" soup is taken by the Chinese because the bird saliva that keeps the grass material together is though to have medicinal qualities.

I am still waiting for BET Uncut, "Thinks Like A Kid" and "Low And Country" to detail their recipes for "Blue Bird Crap Soup".

Funny how I am attacked as a Republican though I am not YET those who most fervently work as parasitic worms within our racial nucleus are allowed to work as operatives for their party without suffering any such attack.

Mack Is Lying - I don't get you and Mellaneous. Are you HOPING that other nations around the world go strong and give the "beast" some competition so that more people around the world will prosper

OR

are you asking that they REMEMBER who 'ALLOWED' them to prosper as you tell them to "not get beside themselves" because things could change?


What about VIETNAM TODAY?

CF,
have you noticed those microwave antenna on top of carrier buildings. There are no private companies that own the RF spectrum.

mellaneous said...

CF you were right when you suggested that I want other people to prosper as well.

It seems you are even confused about what capitalism is as BTX outed you.

And what are you so mad about? Is as KID suggested capitalism your God? And you get mad when it is exposed.

Whats so bad about wanting everyone to get their fair share. You behave like someone who is morally bankrupt despite all your crocodile tears for those vicimized by street criminals.

I thought you were a Christian why are you stooping so low? If anyone is sorry it is you because you defend the masters without just compensation.

BTW you know when you stoop to name calling its a sign that you can no longer defend your position! And rather than revealing my ignorance it actually reveals yours.

Funny you should ask.

I am writing an analysis of Dr Juliane Malveaux's USA Today article about July 4th.

She is happy that the "Negro now has rights that a White man need respect" HOWEVER she condemns the ECONOMIC inequality.

As with YOU - I fear HER MEANS of obtaining this EQUALITY.

Private property and powerful, oppressive government is the inevitable outcome.

The "Isle of Dr Juliane Malveaux" will be a fate worse for NEARLY ALL in America than what the present day Detroit is for the few Americans that have the misfortune of living there.

This is your problem Mellaneous.

Hathor - you mean something similar to the 700Mhz that the US government LEASED to the tune of over $24 BILLION from the evil telecomm companies a few years ago?

At minimum let us agree that:

* The government is a legitimate REGULATOR of this spectrum in that "God" isn't making any more of it, there is a fixed amount and there needs to be a traffic cop lest the interference causes no one to transmit

* The CORPORATIONS that vie for long term LEASES of specific spectrum go to the CAPITAL MARKETS to finance these billion dollar tabs that the FCC charges them and puts into the federal piggy bank (to be spent on some other foolishness)

* The evil CORPORATIONS purchase transmitting equipment - more billions of dollars to use this spectrum to blanket an area

* YOU the CONSUMER make use of their wireless network, paying them $60 per month for your 1000 minutes and your arm and leg if you dare go over that amount

* These firms us this money from usage fees to pay back their financing

What is EVIL about this?

Mellanous will soon find a rest of world that has ADOPTED capitalistic fancies rather than remaining POOR and retaining his sympathies as "The Least Of These".

Hathor said...

I really said an awful lot, just reminding CF that telecommunications is more than trunk lines and switches. I did forget to mention that taxpayer paid for the R&D in the technology and hardware that launched those satellites.
You know I don't recall ever mentioning evil, the devil, Satan or anything CF will come up with in his response.

The Porch Monkey Gibbers - The truth is, BET Uncut - these massive OC-768 trunk circuits that span the USA are PRIVATELY OWNED by these big, evil capitalist organizations.

Guffaws!

Never seen one of those "massive" trunks, have you?

Uhhhhh moron, the optical cable used for OC-768 is exactly the same cable they used for OC-192, which is exactly the same cable they were using for OC-48...

It's about the thickness of a hair. (Check your groin area... you might still have some - if not check a woman's hairbrush). Don't hold it next to your Johnson...

Because then, it WILL look massive!

And each of the major carriers utilizes public rights of way to run that bundled optical cable, which is a MASSIVE 1" to 2" in diameter containing typically 144 or more of these little tiny strands. Furthermore if you look down any country or suburban road - and notice that string of telephone poles...

They are sitting on public land! (Ditto for the little green "toadstools" for cable).

Now - they aren't going to let you inside either one of those central offices or something critical to the Internet like a MAE - because they have rules against idiots coming in and stumbling stupidly over the nice equipment (or in your case slobbering). You need a license for one, and security clearance for the other...

Which you ain't gonna get.

Now as to federal funding for the internet - this is a $1 billion funding of the Internet for just parts of Texas from the USDA -

http://www.agr.state.tx.us/agr/media/media_render/0,1460,1848_17053_37318_0,00.html

There are dozens of projects like this all around the country - funded on the Federal dime.

Now, go on back up on the gingerbread and swing like a good Porch Monkey...

And eat your banana.

And BTW moron -

1)there are no routers attached to those OC-768s.

2) the Internet is not one network - it is hundreds of networks, some of which are owned, and paid for by Government entities.

3)The next generation internet will have no routers in the backbone. They will be pushed out to edge devices and replaced by devices called flow switches (optical switching). It probably won't even run TCP/IP. And don't try and figure this out by yourself - ask a real network professional!

No he has not. He is too busy watching for the black helicopters when he looks up.:)

"Massive" is a figure of speech - PRICK!!

Did you think that I thought that they were large COPPER circuits, the larger quantity of metal used because the "bits" are more abundant?

You are playing to the crowd that is reading this - NOT to fact.

Just like the classical minstrel.

If you stripped away Mellaneous' clear aversion to over the top hateful propaganda and violence - would HIS views differ much from the ENDS that are heard in this speech?

That would be the George W. Bush who is a blood relative of seventeen previous U.S. Presidents, and also related to the British royal family through both his mother and father.

But he's not elitist - naaaaaaaahhhh.
