S*** just got real!

 All these right-wing pundits and politicians saying that Donald trump is being singled out for unfair treatment by the Manhattan District Attorney's office have never practiced criminal law in America. The truth is that Donald trump has been singled out for favorable treatment from the criminal justice system for years. Now, finally, it would appear that there is a prosecutor willing to charge him for his "alleged" crimes and make him accountable. 

And let's stop with this silly notion that Manhattan District Attorney Bragg should have waited to charge him until more serious charges were brought by one of the numerous other agencies investigating his numerous cases. That's not how this works. If you are committing criminal acts you should be held accountable regardless of your station in life. No one should be above the law. No one.  

Now, predictably, Mr. trump is painting the charges being brought against him as a political witch-hunt, and he is calling for violence, once again, from his minions. He is attacking the Judge, the District Attorney, and all of his perceived enemies for his predicament. Predictably,  he is leaving out the one person responsible for the mess he now finds himself in: Himself.

We will see how this plays out in the next coming days and months, and regardless of the outcome of his trial, Mr. trump has been an enormous stain on America and everything that she is supposed to stand for. He has exposed the true character of almost half of the country, and discredited the lie that we are a nation that view each other as equals. 

As is always the case with Mr. trump, there is more than enough irony in the position that he now find himself in. Remember all the "lock her up chants"? Hillary Clinton is having the last laugh. All those MAGA heads who were crying "lock her up" along with him, are now screaming that it's not right to indict and arrest a political opponent.  

Donald trump will be fingerprinted and have his mug shot taken on Tuesday, and a new chapter of his life will begin. This one won't end the way he wants it to, and he won't be able to control the narrative the way he is accustomed to with the help of his right-wingnut friends. 

As they say in the streets: S**t just got real.

? Of The Day

Now that there is finally a sign that the former guy might be held accountable for his past actions, I have a question: Do you believe that he will actually be charged and convicted in any of these pending criminal probes? And if your answer is  no, why not?

Musings about the news.

I have some observations about some of the stories in the news over the past few days.

First, if republicans ever want to make inroads with black folks in this country, they are going to have to start by doing the little things to make us know that they care about our history. 

I was watching the march in Selma, Alabama this past weekend, and not ONE single republican politician participated in that march. What are black folks supposed to think of that? Tim Scott, you better pay attention.

I am not sure how many people tuned in to the former guy's speech at CPAC gathering a few days ago, but if you did, you saw a guy who was clearly delusional and out of touch with reality. The scary thing is that even though the room was half empty, it was still half full, and those people who still believe in this guy scare me even more than he does.  His speech was dark dark and loaded with things that would make any fascist leader proud. 

Honestly, if you want the American experiment to continue, you better pray that this guy doesn't get close to the White House ever again. 

I saw some of Chris Rock's special on Netflix last night, and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. He picked on being woke, which is such a lazy and easy fall back for comedians these days. As if woke is a bad thing. New flash, it's not. Then he went in on Jada Pinkett-Smith.  Again. He actually called her a bitch this time, and in her hometown of Baltimore no less. Lord! The level of disrespect.  I get it, celebrities are fair game, and Will Smith was wrong for physically assaulting him at the Oscars. But Rock, to me, is one of these Negroes that's always cooning for the approval of a certain segment of the population. He is always so proud to tell black folks business. That bothers me. Those people love him, though. I suspect it's because he says out loud what they want to say but can't.  

Rock ended his show by declaring that he didn't fight Smith because white folks were watching. Yes, he really said that.  I rest my case when it comes to this fellow.

Finally, there is the F****r Carlson's edited version of what happened on January 6th. You really have to wonder how a guy like this is allowed to spew his lies and hate on a nightly basis to millions of gullible people. Ask yourself this: If January 6th was all a hoax, and those treasonous lunatics were just a bunch of sightseers, just what the hell was Josh Hawley running from?
