A Liberal Response to the Republican ..

I am riding my bike as I type a liberal , nothing held back, response to the Republican rebuttal to the State of the Union address given by President Obama. As I said last night,because my bed forced me into a state of unconscious I was not able to view the rebuttal live, I would base my response on secondary sources. My secondary source is a link on the Huffington Post to a transcript of Paul Ryan's rebuttal. I thought for some reason Michelle Bachmann was giving the official rebuttal. Anywho.

As I read the transcript my overall thought was same mess different hour of the day. Without explicitly saying "job killing" healthcare reform, the entire rebuttal was, to me, about "job killing" healthcare reform. I found a vague reference to the irresponsible 2001 tax cut in the middle of a war. It was a very very vague reference- "past administrations have created our current deficit".

What I found odd about the rebuttal was the lack of an actual response to the SOTU spoken by President Obama yesterday. I did not read anything refuting the presidents's vow to end oil subsides. Absolute silence on the president's vow to give up his attachment to community action programs( the programs that allow the socially/economically disadvantage to afford the basics of American life). Arguments for keeping NCLB were written no where in the rebuttal. I was a bit confused to read nothing but a party line in the rebuttal. If there was more to it please tell to me the more.

The president last night showed a backbone that many in the progressive moment thought was long gone. He was firm on what he would and would not accept. He showed to America the leader he was voted by the American people to be. He nailed his second SOTU. He left those who had a rebuttal only able use a tired worn out party line that was totally disconnected from the actual SOTU speech given by President Obama.

Black Lightning is more than ready for prime time

Black Lightning
It is finally here.I do mean finally for I have been waiting for seems to be ages (1977).I am calling for a second season having only watched the first two episodes.I am not sure of the level of involvement Tony Isabella & Trevor Von Eeden in the production of each episode.The first two I enjoyed, did I say that already?The first two episodes seems to have been packed with every issue seen in mainstream media and think pieces regarding the Black community.This posting is not a think piece. It is my piss piece.Before I touch on the piss, thanks, many thanks, to Salim and Mara Akil for making it happen.
Black Lighting opens with a Black parent, once again, having to bail a child out of jail for exercising his/her right of protest in the USA. We need to question why peaceful protests with no guns see protestors arrested. Please do not take I am saying people of color should have guns at protest marches.We would be shot before the first step taken. I am only making a…

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .
