‘Fake’ Religion VS. ‘Real’ Coronavirus

Fake ass christians are flouting city and state COVID-19 directives banning crowds of more than 10 that were put in place in an attempt to rein in the coronavirus pandemic, but as usual, the foolish, brainwashed sheeple take no heed because the fake ass religious bullshit that they have been fed for too damn long has taken root and sent logical thought, fleeing.

A choir decided to go ahead with rehearsal. Now dozens of members have COVID-19 and two are dead

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. — With the coronavirus quickly spreading in Washington state in early March, leaders of the Skagit Valley Chorale debated whether to go ahead with weekly rehearsal.

Sixty singers showed up. A greeter offered hand sanitizer at the door, and members refrained from the usual hugs and handshakes.

Nearly three weeks later, 45 have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or ill with the symptoms, at least three have been hospitalized, and two are dead.

So tell me, who is singing now? And I suppose the fake ass christians are going to say, “It was their time. They are with the lord.” And to that I would respond, “How the fuck do YOU know?” Oh that’s right. Just how you know that there is some magical being beyond the stars that’s sitting somewhere handing down cases after cases of coronavirus just to test us and send some of us to meet this so-called ‘maker’ of ours; this magical being, is that about right?

Let me just clue you dumbasses in on something. If ‘god’ made you, then he also gave you a damn brain which should enable you to have the ability to think for yourselves and if a pandemic has been declared and those who are supposedly ALL in the know as to what to do to protect yourselves tell you to ‘distance yourself from others’ and who also issue ‘shelter in place’ orders, then that is what the hell you need to do. But do you? No! You believe that some magical being is going to protect your ass from your own stupidity in flouting the protocols that have been established to protect not only YOUR stupid ass from contracting coronavirus but also to protect those of us from your stupid coronavirus filled asses.

You don’t give a damn about your fellow so-called ‘humans’ because it is ALL about you and your magical being sitting up in some heavenly paradise awaiting YOUR stupid ass to join him. Go ahead! But you don’t get to take the rest of us out and along with you on YOUR ‘magical’ journey to the ‘rapture’. You don’t get to decide that the rest of us had better believe the bullshit lies spouted from pulpits ALL across this shithole from snake oil salesmen selling you fake ass snake oil in the form of a guaranteed spot in some mansions in the fucking sky with some magical being. If you want to believe in that shit, that’s on your dumb ass, but you don’t get to claim that you’re better than all others and so you get to flout the law and do as you please when we are supposed to be on lockdown.

I knew you damn phony ass, hypocrite nutcases would claim that your ‘religious freedoms’ were being denied you as an excuse to venture out because your damn asses are getting antsy from being cooped up with those little hellions you call kids. To hell with that. Your hellions trying your last nerve is NOT my problem, nor should it be the cause of me contracting coronavirus. You deal with that shit, in your fucking home!

And here we have another bunch of lunatic, religious nutcases that defied COVID-19 orders to lock yourself down; shelter in place!

Louisiana church defies COVID-19 order, holds Sunday services

CENTRAL, La. — Pentecostal preacher Tony Spell didn’t just stand before his congregation on Sunday in defiance of the governor’s order to stay home: He leaped into the pews, paraded, hugged and laid hands on worshipers’ foreheads in prayer.

Across Louisiana, the coronavirus has infected more than 3,500 people and led to 151 deaths as of Sunday, with one of the highest per-capita death rates in the country down the interstate in New Orleans. To limit its spread, Gov. John Bel Edwards banned gatherings of more than 50 people earlier this month and on March 22 issued a stay-at-home order.

And according to snake oil salesman, Tony Spell, “Churches are the last stable community institutions.” Seriously??!!! Oh, I guess, like Trump, he is a “stable genius.” I just cannot make this shit up. Churches are filled with the UNSTABLE! That is a proven fact! How the hell can you believe in and worship that which you have not seen and claim that you have faith in what you cannot see while at the same time, hating your neighbor, who you don’t even want to see???!!!

The claim is that people of ALL stripes and hues ‘worship’ at this snake oil salesman’s church, and yet, they ALL leave and return to segregated communities and so what ‘good’ does going to church do ANY of those hypocrites; those heathens? The Blacks go back to their parish. The whites go back to theirs and the snake oil salesman and his minions go back to theirs, only to come together to practice fake ass shit at the proper time on appointed days. And if ANY of you were getting any benefit from what this snake oil salesman was selling, it would show, but when you look around, is it? Hatred and animosity towards one another abounds in this shithole while these so-called religious snake oil salesmen drone on and on about, what, I don’t know because it is quite apparent that there is no ‘love’ going around because if it were, it would surely be in evidence. I don’t see hide nor hair of that shit and neither do you brain dead hypocrites that’s sitting up in church listening to lies and speaking gibberish and calling it “speaking in tongues.” You sound stupid and you look dumb and ignorant because you are. But at the same time, you are killing people by spreading a virus that is highly contagious. You christian shits are like some Jim Jones shit; motherfuckers sitting up drinking the poisoned kool-aid and dropping dead, but in this case, taking others out with you.

The law needs to shut your asses down because it is quite obvious that you are too starstruck by some make believe, fake ass shit to have any sense about you stupid shits whatsoever. And for those of you who need further proof of how fucked up these so-called christian ‘holy men’ are, read this shit while I fucking weep!

Liberty University’s Jerry Falwell Jr. Gets Holy Hell As Students Fall Sick

 

Falwell partially reopened the school, and now nearly a dozen students reportedly have symptoms.

Jerry Falwell Jr. last week partially reopened his Liberty University ― an evangelical Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia ― despite the spread of the coronavirus. Now, The New York Times reports that nearly a dozen students have symptoms that could suggest infection ― and Falwell is facing the wrath of both parents and critics.Falwell has been a coronavirus conspiracy theorist, claiming an “overreaction” to the threat is really an attempt to make President Donald Trump look bad.“Impeachment didn’t work, and the Mueller report didn’t work, and Article 25 didn’t work,” he said earlier this month on Fox News, which has consistently given voice to conspiracy theories. “And so maybe now this is their next attempt to get Trump.”

This little shithole burg is as ill equipped to handle a pandemic as a fly is ill equipped to fell a charging bull. But this dumbass, clueless, racist, greedy as all hell snake oil salesman Jerry Falwell Jr., has unleashed a damn pandemic on what amounts to Hootersville. There will be so many deaths from this virus in this burg, the numbers will astound even the most hard hearted. Those of you who know nothing of Lynchburg should know  this, the dumb shits that graduate from nursing school here should never be allowed inside a clinic that’s set up for the express purpose of healing sick gnats, much less do they have  the medical knowledge and tools to aid sick people in healing. The vast majority of Lynchburg residents go outside of Lynchburg to get their medical care because WE know that WE are fucking DOOMED if we get any health care in this shithole burg!

But this fake ass christian conservative Trump asshole eater, Jerry Falwell Jr., has unleashed hell on the residents of Lynchburg, many of which are poor and are destined to succumb to coronavirus. And what’s more, Falwell will be glad because he has ALWAYS been against poor people in Lynchburg. He even raised the rent on a grocery store that was in a high density poverty area that Lynchburg’s poor used to frequent to do their grocery shopping. The grocery store had to close down. He knowingly did this so that Lynchburg’s poor would be in a food desert. And now he wants to screech and shout about how Liberty’s students hand out bags of food and some rags to Lynchburg’s poor. What the hell is that going to do when people are  trying to breathe and can’t because they have been ravaged by the coronavirus? Falwell knew what would happen when he re-opened Liberty University because he is very much aware of the state of ‘health care’ in this shithole burg and who was already dying due to a lack of properly trained medical staff at ALL Lynchburg area medical facilities and that includes both hospitals; Lynchburg General and Virginia Baptist.

If you could see what the vast majority of people look like down here, someone would call for that bastard’s head on a platter because as bad as these people look now, the shit is about to go the fuck off in a horrific way down here. Yeah! This is what religious bullshitters do for you! This is what happens when these christian shits defy orders to put shit on lockdown. The Falwells have ALWAYS been treated as if they are above the law and that is why this scum sucking bottom feeder is getting away with this shit! He is no different from Trump; both are two sides of the same coin. Both called coronavirus a hoax and both claimed that coronavirus was just another setup to cost Trump his re-election bid. Both motherfuckers are insane! And yet, neither is locked up and kept from the public. Both are given a platform on which to continue to fuck innocent people up without any consequences whatsofucking ever.

Those Falwells have had Lynchburg locked down for far too long. This shithole burg is run more like a fiefdom than a city whereas rich whites lock this shit down and no one had better say a fucking word and the vast majority do NOT! Why the fuck do you think that this blog is filled with the fucked up shit that’s happened to me since I’ve been back here? My ass was born here and I am so fucking NOT bragging! In the entire state of Virginia, Lynchburg has the HIGHEST EVICTION RATES! Why is that when we’ve got all of these fake ass conservative christians every goddamn where spouting bullshit?!!! Because they are FAKE, that’s fucking why! And all they care about is money, money, money and the power that comes with having loads of money. They don’t give a shit for ANYONE and that includes their own damn families because have you noticed that no one has said a damn thing about Falwell’s brother, Jonathan? When Jerry Falwell died, he left the purse strings in the hands of Jerry Falwell Jr. And that greedy, lying, racist bastard keeps a tight rein on every damn thing, even on Jonathan. Jonathan better ‘preach’ at that church and otherwise, shut the fuck up AND he does! Everyone in this racist burg is TERRIFIED to speak out against the Falwells, who by the way, obtained their fucking money from running bootleg liquor. They put a lockdown on that shit and became rich enough to start spouting religious bullshit and then off to the races it was. Everyone down here knows the  truth and everyone is too fucking scared of these whackos to do a goddamn thing about them. Many people just move to Madison Heights or further into Amherst to get away from underneath the boot of these damn hypocrite Falwells. And that ain’t no fucking lie!

Every single time Falwell opens his racist, greedy piehole, he is LYING! And he is lying now by saying that no Liberty University students have coronavirus. YES.THEY.DO. And soon, the rest of Lynchburg is going to have it too and there will be MASS CREMATIONS. And if you think I’m being overly dramatic, continue to watch for news that will soon be coming out of Lynchburg. I don’t give a damn about what happens to these rich white assholes down here, but the poor Black people are going to be dropping like flies.

You goddamn fake ass, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, religious heathens, drop the fuck dead already and take your goddamn snake oil salesmen with you! You have caused enough harm and sadly, many Black people are following YOUR goddamn lead because I saw plenty of Black motherfuckers decked out in their Sunday church rags yesterday and I just shook my head because even now, they are NOT heeding ‘shelter in place’ orders. But since they are SO ready to head for ‘the rapture’, know this, your asses are headed for DEAD, I do know that! Where the hell else you go, do you even fucking know? Hell no, you don’t! And if Falwell truly believed in Jesus Christ, he would NOT be such a racist, greedy, fake ass christian piece of shit because according to the Buybull, Jesus said, “Give up your worldly goods and follow me!” Does that look like what the fuck Falwell and ALL the other rich white so-called christian conservatives are doing? Fuck NO!

Furthermore, this is what I think of your religious bullshit, you fake ass christian heathens!

…About A Needle’s Eye…

Who cares about a needle’s eye?
Eternal wealth is what I crave.
I do not care about the poor.
Let them lie in a pauper’s grave.

As you attend your service to god,
You believe in him, you say.
But if you had my wealth,
to whom would you still pray?

Cease with the pretense,
that religion is all about love.
You know there is no heaven,
and no deity from above.

Whenever sheep awaken,
a shepherd is produced,
To keep the sheep in line.
another coma is thus induced.

An awakened world is dangerous,
so we invented a fairy tale,
to keep from you the fact,
that there really is no hell.

Could you be kept in line,
if you were wide awake,
and not afraid of any god,
that religion could ever make?

Matthew 19:24- Matthew 19:29
And Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24″Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, “Then who can be saved?”…

26And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

27Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?

28And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.…
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.…

Now, ask yourself why the Walmart Waltons are holding tight to their wealth. Ask yourself why politicians who avidly profess to being conservative Christians, continue to sell their ‘soul’ for money and tightly clinch to their chest, the bribes and kickbacks they get from lobbyists. Why are Bill and Melinda Gates deemed such philanthropists but they are NOT so filled with love that they are concerned about ‘getting through the eye of the needle’ that Jesus Christ supposedly talked about?

Why do the rich seem to not concern themselves with a so-called ‘afterlife’? It is because they don’t BELIEVE in some unseen deity beyond the stars. They know better! But you’ve got to be kept in line, praying to god to fill your empty pantry so that you can feed your children while corporate executives swill the finest wines and eat the choicest of meats and delicacies. Why are they not concerned about getting to ‘heaven’, entering the Pearly Gates, meeting up with St. Peter, ‘getting through the eye of a needle’?

It is because this is all a lie! A big, gigantic lie to keep the sheep, docile with the hope that some deity is going to reward them for the hardships that they endure on this planet and not look at those who have hoarded all the wealth and rise up! Religion is a tool to control people and I’ve got to say, it IS working!

Wake up people! No one is going to rescue you or save you, but you! Stop allowing yourself to be controlled. The shit that the ‘poor man’s Pope adorns himself with could feed a small starving village in Africa, but you don’t see him refusing to wear it. If Jesus supposedly walked around, attired in a robe with a rope for a belt, is the Pope any better than ‘Jesus’? What is your bishop, reverend, pastor, rabbi driving? A horse and buggy or a Rolls-Royce Sweptail.? Are they walking? Exactly!

Here’s another gem!

“Jesus! A Minute Of Your Time!”

 

Some nights, when I cannot fall asleep,
I do not ask the Lord my soul to keep.
Once I believed, but I do not believe anymore.
He never heals the sick or feeds the poor.

His ‘holy’ men just take the tithes from fools,
who by rights should get a refund from their schools,
for believing in a fairy tale of such bull,
and pretending that an empty cup is full.

If I once believed in God, that ship has sailed,
nor can I pray to a man they say was nailed.
For if they did exist, why have they ignored the cries
of all the ‘holy men’ who spout tall tales and lies?

Their brainwashed flock, they will believe,
those who get paid to lie, con and deceive.
And who promise that the sick will all be healed
and that Blacks will not be jailed or shot and killed.

Next Sunday, look at the picture on the wall.
Kneel before it and in a deep, southern drawl,
say, “Jesus, a minute of your time!”
“Why is Black skin at the scene of every crime?”
“What wrong did we ever do to you,
“that would make you hate us for it too?”
 “I listen to your word, oh Lord on high!”
 “So once again, I have to ask you why?”
 “If you exist, and there really is no sign,
at how much evil, will you finally draw the line?”

Black folks, you ought to KNOW better! Seriously!!!!! Look at the state of Black America. But with all of these fucking churches, why the fuck is Black America so fucked up? You can’t understand why? Because your church hands out some damn outdated cans of beans, it’s doing something, is that it? And why the fuck are you believing in some damn white man’s god? No white man means you any good and why the hell you don’t know THAT shit by now, just amazes me! But keep believing in the white man’s fake ass ‘god’ and you’ll find yourselves wishing you hadn’t. And that ain’t no lie for when has the white man EVER meant us ANY good? Yeah! You think on THAT! And think about the plight of the Indian in this shithole and  take the shit from there!

 

Let Me Make This Clear To You Whites Who Are Talking About How “We Are In This Together Thanks To Coronavirus” WE AIN’T IN SHIT TOGETHER!

 

Whites, I’m about sick of your bullshit! All of a sudden, now that coronavirus has reared its viral head, whites are screeching and wailing that “We are ALL in this together!” What.The.Fuck. I am NOT in shit with you nasty ass whites!

You pasty assed shits need to take several seats! American descendants of slaves were thrown under the bus by you pasty assed devils since FOREVER in this shithole, but now that this virus has your asses running scared while at the same time making you sit your damn depraved, debased asses down somewhere, quarantined in your McMansions, you ain’t got shit to do but think about the shit that you can’t fucking do! GOOD! But while you’re at it, don’t get the shit twisted. Those of us who are ADOS are NOT in shit with you! You fucking white assholes moved yourselves into gated communities to get away from us. You fucking raised the rents in our neighborhoods, thus rendering us homeless as you gentrified that shit and now that coronavirus is breathing down your damn pasty necks, we’re suddenly, ALL IN THIS SHIT TOGETHER???!!! Are you worthless fucks for real??!! You’ve got the fucking balls of bulls to come up with that shit! Fuck you!!!

Ain’t no ADOS in this shit with you funky, pasty assed, filthy white motherfuckers! You’re on your damn own! You cannot stand the fact that coronavirus cannot be bought. You cannot throw your credit cards at it. You cannot impress it with your white privilege. You cannot impress it with your fucked up sense of ‘white supremacy’. You cannot drone strike it away. You cannot bomb it away. You cannot sanction it away. Hell! There’s not a goddamn thing that you can do but wait your turn to come down with coronavirus and that’s scaring the hell out of you because ordinarily, you’d be in line at Disney World or at Disneyland with your screaming hellions, but you can’t do that because coronavirus has come in and put paid to that shit! I’m loving it! I am LOVING the fact that coronavirus has got your pasty asses on the fucking run. Yeah! Run to the Hamptons. Run to the desert. Run to the mountains. Makes no difference. Coronavirus is going to find your ass and all the money in the world is NOT going to keep your pasty asses safe from what is YOUR due! You refused to pay your dues and now coronavirus is here to collect and it will. And it is far from done. You refuse to do the right thing and so the right thing is going to do you. Welcome coronavirus! Every pasty assed motherfucker’s door is open and so just go on in and settle down for a spell. Enjoy yourself coronavirus because it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of freeloading, scum sucking bottom feeders that got rich off the backs of my ancestors and now that they can do nothing with their ill gotten gains, they want to screech about how “We are all in this together!” Fuck you whites! We ain’t in shit together!

Finally, something is coming for your asses and there ain’t a goddamn thing you can do about it but wait for the inevitable. Shit must be getting to you right about now because you’ve been housebound for how long now? And your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump knows that only too well. That’s why he’s encouraging your worthless asses to head inside a church on Easter Sunday and pray to your bullshit god to save your no account asses. It won’t do you any good because your bullshit god is just that, BULLSHIT! Unfortunately, you’ve got many ADOS going along with your fake ass religious bullshit because they’ve been fucking brainwashed by you filthy parasites, but not me. I spit on your religious shit, you goddamn monsters.

Oh you are running scared alright because this is not just a Black disease, this virus is taking your pasty asses out in droves. Life as you know is has ended. And believe me, nothing will ever be the same again, so you can just forget about that “back to normal” bullshit! This IS normal for me and those who look like me. Remember when I said in previous blogs that the poor Black homeless people who are dealing with typhus and hookworm and other major diseases would not be dealing with epidemics and shit of the like, alone? If you don’t then you can archive this blog to your heart’s content and you will most definitely find me stating that your turn was coming and voila! It’s here! Ain’t it grand? Having fun yet? I am!

Ask the ‘future’ king of England, Prince Charles, if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask the Prime Minister of the UK if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask multiple heads of state ALL across this planet were they rich enough or powerful enough to keep themselves from contracting the virus. So,  tell me whites, how’s your money helping you now? You can’t shop. You can’t go to Disney World. You can’t go watch a pro sports game. You can’t play golf. You can’t go to the spa. You can’t jet around the world and go skiing. You can’t go on a cruise. Your money is doing what for you now? You’re doing what now? Exactly! Your ass is on lockdown and pretty soon, you’re going to get antsy because having money and there’s nothing you can do with it is going to cause you to go nuts. What are you going to do when the months drag on, whites? Those parties in the Hamptons are going to get old. Those desert hideaways are going to get boring. Those mountain views are soon going to turn into raging fire views because fire season is coming. And so you are going to have to drag your pale asses down from those mountains and stop hiding out from coronavirus. So you may as well drag your dusty, pale asses on down off the mountains now and get it over with.

And in case you dumb ass whites cannot figure out why I am not upset or worried about coronavirus, it is because I have you to ‘thank’ for that. Because of YOU pasty assed monstrosities, my life has ALWAYS consisted of pain, suffering, torment, hunger, homelessness and some more shit of the like and so why should I be afraid of coronavirus?  I’m not, but you’re so fucking scared, you can hardly function. And so you will NEVER be able to understand how I can deal with this shit and millions of those who look like me are dealing with this shit because your life has not been ours. Your life has been filled with the opposite of mine and millions who look like me. I’ve lost a sister to crack that YOU pasty assed shits let loose on innocent people like me. I’ve lost multiple loved ones thanks to you pasty assed motherfuckers taking the HYPOCRITE OATH when it comes to practicing medicine on us and I could go on and on and on as in mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, gentrification, mass homelessness, disparities in health care and the list is endless and so without further ado, let me just reiterate that we are NOT in this virus shit together white motherfuckers! As far as I am concerned, WHITES, you are on your own. Deal with the shit! You left me to deal with the shit you dealt me and so fuck you AND yours!

 

Another Good Girl Gone Bad!

Here we go, another ‘good’ girl gone bad.
And yeah, I know, the fucking world’s gone mad.

This is where I say, “I don’t give a shit!”
Who am I kidding? That’s it! I quit!!

I don’t give a good goddamn anymore!
What the fuck? I can’t even the score!

And hell no, my halo ain’t slipping.
To this fucked up world, the bird, I’m flipping.

This time I’ve just stopped giving a fuck.
To those in need, you are SO out of luck.

How many ‘good’ days have you ever had?
When has the ‘good’ outweighed the bad?

Me? I’ll never be mistaken for a SAP!
Sad and Pathetic, to hell with that crap!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ve heard it all before!
We’ve got to feed the hungry and look out for the poor!

Go tell it on the mountain and then head to Wall Street!
And sit your ass down and accept the word, DEFEAT!

Write it all down and sell it if you can.
You ain’t fooling me, I know you got no plan.

Re-write history and what about the lies?
Who conquers who? I won’t wait for that surprise!

And who the hell says there is a human race?
I’ve looked far and wide, there ain’t a goddamn trace!

Talk shit to the dead who got nothing to lose.
They’re sitting in church, so go light the fuse.

The puppets and the zombies all dance to one tune.
All are kept in line by the goon’s platoon.

Step one foot out and you get your ass shot.
You can ‘care’ if you want, but it’s all for naught.

….and don’t come in here with no bullshit about how we’re ALL in this together. We’re not in shit together! We’re not doing a goddamn thing but pissing in the wind and as soon as you wake the fuck up and recognize, the better off your ass will be. It is fucking war! Ain’t no goddamn peace!!


As you can see, I wrote this in 2013 and not a goddamn thing has changed except that now that coronavirus is here, you whites are screeching about “We are all in this together!” FUCK IF WE ARE! I’m NOT in shit with you! This shit is coming mostly for your asses and I am damn sure NOT in shit with you white, filthy assed, no good, racist, parasitic creatures! So stop coming up to me on the streets talking that shit about us being in this shit together. You never talked THAT shit before, so don’t even fucking bother starting with that shit now! You are FUCKING ON YOUR OWN! Scared much?!! HA! I’m loving it!

Health Care Workers On The Coronavirus Front Lines Say “This System Is Doomed!”

Nurses who are treating coronavirus patients are being advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to start using bandanas and scarves as they run out of  masks. And nurses are contracting coronavirus as a result. Capitalism at its finest! So tell me, when the nurses are laid low, who is going to treat coronavirus patients? Donald Trump? Mike Pence? Mitch McConnell?

 

Nothing like ‘good’ news about how capitalism and our government works for the ‘good’ of the people in times of crises, right?

‘This system is doomed’: Doctors, nurses sound off in NBC News Coronavirus study

Many reported being forced to ration or reuse supplies, including surgical and N-95 masks, for fear of running out. Many also said they were facing shortages of basic sanitary supplies, including hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

The N95 mask filters out airborne particulates and aerosols, and the Food and Drug Administration advises that neither N-95 masks, nor surgical masks, should be used more than once.

But in response to growing shortages of PPE, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has loosened its guidelines on proper use and reuse of masks. On Thursday, the agency advised that bandanas and scarves could be used by healthcare workers in place of a mask as a last resort.

Bandanas and scarves? The supposedly richest country on the planet has nurses on the front lines of coronavirus crisis using bandanas and scarves to protect themselves from the ravages of coronavirus as they take care of coronavirus patients? Seriously???!!! Capitalism at its finest. Meanwhile, the asswipes that kept this virus hush hush are still trying to protect capitalism and ONLY capitalism at the expense of the Amerikkkan people. Doesn’t this just give you a warm and cozy feeling inside to know that your lord and savior, racist-in-chief, Donald Trump is busy protecting his buddies on Wall Street along with his many ‘businesses’ and that of his family while throwing your asses under the bus; those of you who voted for him, that is? And millions upon millions of racist whites, did indeed, vote for this piece of racist filth that is making sure that this virus rages out-of-control thanks to Trump firing the entire PANDEMIC AGENCY that was put into play by his predecessor and since his predecessor was Barack Obama, well there you go!

Meanwhile, an ER nurse was exposed to coronavirus, has the symptoms, but cannot get tested. Ain’t capitalism grand?

An ER nurse told us she was exposed to the coronavirus and has symptoms but still can’t get tested , and it highlights both America’s crippling inequality and its broken health care system

 

  • Since the coronavirus outbreak reached the US, over a dozen nurses nationwide told Business Insider their hospitals still don’t have a clear process to protect them or their patients.Nurses who have treated coronavirus patients and developed symptoms cannot get tests.One hospital in California told a symptomatic nurse she did not qualify for a coronavirus test, despite coming into direct contact with a positive patient.Testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the federal government in approving and delivering materials.

So Amerikkkans, still feeling all that ‘exceptionalism’ that you bought, hook, line and sinker? How does it feel to finally get what you’ve always wanted? Unrelenting capitalism whereas those YOU elected could care less about you coming down with this virus because if they did, do you think that nurses would have to beg to be tested even AFTER they have come into contact with a coronavirus positive patient? And who the hell knows how many people are walking around with this virus since “testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN APPROVING AND DELIVERING MATERIALS?” What great logistics we have here, don’t you think?

Everyone is screeching about what’s going down in Italy and Spain while they’d better be worried about what’s going down in the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA because it doesn’t get any ‘better’ than this and how many of you think this shit is going to get ‘better’ with the stupid shit that’s leading the charge against coronavirus?

And many ‘experts’ claim that the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA is unprepared for this pandemic. What? Naw….who would have thought? The experts are comparing Italy’s health system infrastructure to that of this shithole’s and this shithole’s health system’s infrastructure is coming up appallingly short since in Italy  there are more hospital beds per 1,000 people than the United States–which could signal a lack of preparedness in the US, according to commentary published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. “Though Italy’s health system is highly regarded and has 3.2 hospital beds per 1,000 people (as compared with 2.8 in the United States), it has been impossible to meet the needs of so many critically ill patients simultaneously,” Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. But the experts are still trying to figure out why Italy’s coronavirus rates are so high. Well keep at it, you’ll eventually figure it out.

Meanwhile, even Russia is doing better than this shithole in mitigating the number of coronavirus cases. In fact, Russia has a handle on their coronavirus cases and the numbers of infected are dwindling daily while the numbers here in the states are accelerating at an even greater pace, but then Russia began to take proactive steps as early as January while this shithole’s leaders were busy trying to attack Iran instead of testing those who were coming to this shithole carrying coronavirus. It is just appalling that in a time of crisis, this shithole was still trying to go to war with Iran simply because Iran’s defenses are low as they battle coronavirus with little to no aid thanks to sanctions put into play against them by this shithole. If there is any consolation to what Iran’s people are dealing with, then it is the fact that this shithole’s population is not faring any better than those in Iran. So to any Iranians out there, at least know that while this shithole was trying to attack and bomb you into last century, these shits over here were about to get bombarded with coronavirus as well, and they have.

And you stupid Amerikkkan shits are sitting somewhere wondering why there is no coordinated response for this virus coming from those who are in charge? Are you serious? They are still trying to wage war and protect CAPITALISM. When will you stupid, racist Amerikkkans ever get it through your thick, brainless skulls that your so-called, ‘leaders’, don’t give a shit about any of us because if they did, wouldn’t it show? But does it? Yes indeed, you ALL know the answer to that and while they try and hash out some trillion dollar stimulus package, your rent is about to become due for next month and yet, you have to sit at home alongside your children since you cannot head to your jobs nor can the kiddies go to daycare because this shithole was concentrating on starting a war against Iran and was not even thinking about implementing coronavirus protocols that could have mitigated its impact on this shithole. You think about that shit while you’re sitting at home listening to some shit that you’ve got Alexa playing to keep you distracted from the reality of how fucked you are, stimulus package or not because that stimulus package is going to aid corporations, not our broke asses.

You wanted CAPITALISM. You got it! How well is that working out for you? Get back to me on that. Rome is burning and I for one, am glad!

And As Rome Did Fall From Grace!

Steeped in melancholia
and adorned in robes of sorrow,
I walk among the wretched.
They will be dead before tomorrow.

Bleached bones lie in the sand,
stripped bare of any flesh
as they prepare to turn to dust
and are blown away like ash.

Alone, I stand and look
upon the dry and barren plains.
And I shrug and walk away
from what used to be fruited plains.

An empire meets its fate
just like in days of old
And as Rome did fall from grace,
America’s future was foretold.

But yet Americans still cannot come to terms with the fact that their Disney vacations have been cut short. This is just how stupid and entitled the WHITE Amerikkkans in this shithole are to sit somewhere and post a video of them acting out a Disney vacation. I just throw my goddamn hands up!

Even as all hell breaks loose, the fun and games MUST continue. Fun and games and fake ass fantasy, that is the essence of Amerikkka. For the love of !!!!!!!

 

 

 

And Now…Wendy Williams Has Been ‘Forced’ To Apologize To Gays! For The Love Of !!!!!!!

 

I wish to hell you worthless gay motherfuckers would FORCE me to apologize for what I am about to write. Yeah! I wish you would!

Wendy Williams Faces Backlash After Appearing To Make Light Of Amy Harwick’s Death

Just days after tearfully apologizing for making comments about the LGBTQ+ community, Wendy Williams is facing criticism for appearing to make insensitive remarks about the death of Amie Harwick.

But no one is really focusing on that as much as everyone is focusing on this.

[Wendy Williams] began talking about celebrating Galentine’s Day — an unofficial holiday where women celebrate each other — and took note of the men in the audience who were clapping.

“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this,” Williams said. “You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home. You’re not a part.”

“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through,” she said before she stirred the pot. “And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?… Lookie here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay.”

What the hell did she say that was wrong!!! That was not a question because she said nothing wrong!

What man gets a period? What man has ovaries, fallopian tubes, a uterus, a cervix, etc.; you know, what makes a woman, a woman? Women have the ability to carry a baby to full term, give birth and then nourish that baby even when the baby is not inside her womb, but is lying next to her heart as she feeds the baby from her own breasts and so to you transgenders and other fags out there, where is your ability to do ALL of this? The only thing you degenerates can do is take some growth hormones, have your dick tucked, put on some make-up, a dress and some high heels and then strut around telling everyone to call you a ‘she’. Hell if I will! Playing grown up dress-up is childish and dumb as hell. As little girls, we played with our mother’s makeup, put on her high heel shoes and tugged on her dresses that dragged the floor, but you miserable excuses for men have taken that to a whole other level and are actually forcing everyone to take your comical looking ass, seriously.

You’ve got everyone in this rotten Sodom and Gomorrah called Amerikkka bending over backwards for you insane deviants. It is also stated in the Hebrew Bible and in the Quran that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God because of their rampant homosexual behavior (namely, sodomy). Sodomy was a crime and now you deviants engage in that every chance you get and you want someone to recognize and agree with your debauchery and respect it. Count me the fuck out! I will never call you debauched creatures, women, because you’re not.

Make ME apologize! I wish you would! Because if you wait for an apology from me, you’re as good as dead because you will turn blue first and drop dead!

And  that goddamn piece of shit Obama that finally showed us a clean pair of heels as he exited the White House propped your damn asses up to the point whereas he had the White House lit up in rainbow colors when the Supreme Court granted you deviants the right to get married. You have no fucking idea how truly ludicrous and ridiculous two men and two women look, standing somewhere while a ‘marriage’ ceremony is being performed. And then you deviants have the nerve to look outside the ‘marriage’ to find some female to act as surrogate or some sperm bank to enable you to fulfill your ‘yearning’ for children. How fucked up is that shit? If your damn deviant nature was legit, you’d have no need to get surrogates to carry babies that you men cannot. You lesbians would have no need to head to sperm banks and come away with some stranger’s sperm in order to insert it into your female ‘spouse’ in order to procreate.

But we are ALL supposed to tread lightly because, all of a sudden, since you’ve been dragged out of the closet and emboldened by the fact that Amerikkka could no longer hide her true nature in that this country was founded by sexual deviants, it is now all the rage for everyone that was ‘in’ the closet to ‘come out’. All white men are sexual deviants and you sick perverts are not happy unless you’ve got everyone onboard with your sick and twisted shit. Get some fucking psych help because you are all insane!

The only reason a white man will have sex with a female is for the purpose of procreation and to pretend that his ass is not homosexual. Just look at what’s occurring with the Boy Scouts and with the Catholic Church. And let’s not forget why Jeffery Epstein was ‘suicided’. His trial would have lifted the lid off the most powerful homosexuals in the world; presidents, senators, judges, lawyers, Wall Street thugs, CEOs of banks, hospitals, colleges and universities and the list is endless and you fucking know this, hence why Jeffrey Epstein had to be ‘suicided’. but I damn well know that the deviant shit that was taking place did not just cease with Epstein’s murder. Anyone with more than two brain cells connected and working should know that the vile ass, perverted shit you were doing, you are still at it because your fucking asses are just too sick, twisted and deviant to quit that shit!

Unfortunately, Wendy Williams is not the first Black woman who was ‘forced’ to apologize for telling the goddamn truth about you lousy ass gays. Vivica Fox was made to apologize as well as Jennifer Holliday. In my blog, “I Will NOT Apologize To Faggots!” I highlighted the truly ludicrous reasons why these worthless assed gays took offense to comments that were not offensive or even aimed at them.

The homophobic accusations came after Fox and some of her dancers were asked if gay guys go to shows during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club.”

“Hell no,” she said. “They dance for women… it’s called the ultimate girls night out.”Vivica Fox.

What the hell did Vivica Fox say that was offensive? That her dancers dance for women because it’s the ultimate girls night out? Are you fucking serious?

Get this in your goddamn stupid, crazy heads, gays! You are NOT girls. You are NOT women. You are NOT ladies no matter how ridiculous you tart yourselves up to try and look like us. You will NEVER be us and the fact that you cannot deal with that shit is on YOU, not on anyone else.

And seriously people, you need to cut that apology shit out because it only emboldens them to ever more heights of lunacy since they are already offended over every trifling remark that is not even about their sorry, hating asses. And yes, I said, “hating” because they HATE on REAL women because they can’t BE REAL women. How sick is that??!!! Yeah, think about it. It is more sick than a motherfucker and this shit is running for president. That fag, Pete Buttigieg, is running on the Democratic ticket for president. And I gotta say, his last name is very apropos.

Not to mention, what was supposedly a gift from god, I cannot look at in the same way because the gays have taken over the rainbow. And so to show just how much havoc they have wreaked, I wrote a poem bemoaning why I can no longer look at a rainbow the same way I used to when I was a child.

Rainbows, Once So Beautiful!

Rainbows, once so beautiful
are now defiled by man.
When I look up at a rainbow
it is as beautiful as a rusted can.

If a man wants a dick all in his ass
then go at it tooth and nail
but did you have to defile such beauty
as you lick the ass of a male?

The dykes are on the loose
chasing rainbow-draped cunts.
With tongues drooling and panting
I don’t want to hear your grunts.

You tarnish the rainbow’s image
with your filthy, nasty ways.
I wish you’d all stayed in the closet,
all you vile and disgusting gays!

But what’s even sicker is that all of this shit; this homosexuality shit is now infecting the Black community thanks to mass incarceration. Black men are incarcerated in record numbers and when they get out of prison, many are bringing AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases to Black females since it has been stated that Black females are now the most AIDS infected group in Amerikkka. Go fucking figure. And so here’s another poem that elicited a lot of attention when the Supreme Court decided that two men and two women could get married. That shit sounds as ridiculous as it looks when taking place.

I Miss The Days When Men Were Men

I miss the days when men were men
but the tables have been turned.
A man is now so feminine,
he wants a bra some woman burned.

Feminine is now quite masculine.
What a topsy-turvy world.
Just thinking of this perversion
only makes me want to hurl.

The claim is that they fought
for civil rights for gays.
And that Blacks should be quite happy
giving the high court’s ruling, praise.

Not so fast, this shit ain’t cute.
Being gay is an orientation.
It is not a civil right
to display your aberration.

What sex act you perform
should not be granted such distinction.
Nor be held up as a victory.
It only leads to man’s extinction.

You cannot procreate your seed
when it’s shoved inside a man.
Nor can a woman bear a child
by engaging in sex with Ann.

You’re on the road to hell,
you deviant queers and freaks.
And as you head for wedded blitz
know that your ass of sulfur reeks.

So come at me demanding an apology, I wish you would. You think your ‘feelings’ are hurt now? You ain’t seen nothing yet! I ain’t the one to play with! Try me! I’m not Wendy Williams. I’m not Vivica Fox. I’m not Jennifer Holliday. If you didn’t know, now you know!

When Confronted With Legislation About A Vasectomy Bill, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz Says, “YIKES!”

 

Ted Cruz does NOT want the government controlling the reproductive organs of men, but he has no problem with the government controlling the reproductive organs of women, hence his railing against abortion when women get pregnant thanks in part to the reproductive organs of men, but it is a case of “Yikes!” when the government proposes vasectomies for men in an effort to control a man’s role in reproduction.

Ted Cruz takes aim at Alabama vasectomy bill: “YIKES!”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took aim at legislation recently introduced in Alabama by a state representative that would, if passed, make it mandatory for certain men to get vasectomies – a bill that comes in response to legislation passed last year that seeks to ban abortion in the state.

“Yikes,” Cruz wrote in response to the bill on Twitter on Sunday morning. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

The bill would require men to get a vasectomy after the birth of their third child or when they reach 50 years of age; whichever comes first. Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D), introduced the legislation in response to Alabama legislation that prohibits women from seeking and obtaining abortions even in instances of rape and incest. And of course, Sen. Ted Cruz was all FOR the legislation aimed at restrictions on women’s reproductive control over their own bodies, but when it comes to men, well now, that’s a different story. According to Ted Cruz, the government does not have a right to regulate a man’s reproductive system because, uh….well…because…he’s says so.

So you white women who voted for the likes of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who can grab you by your pussy at any time, and also to the white women who donned pink pussy hats and marched in what you considered to be, a protest against Donald Trump, whom you elected to the presidency, get your pink pussy hats out again and go march in front of Ted Cruz’s office in protest of his obvious double standards when it comes to the government legislating women’s bodies while not having the authority to legislate men’s bodies. These are the worthless, misogynistic shits that you gave birth to and so hop to it.  But you won’t because these very same assholes uphold the system of ‘white supremacy’ from which you benefit. And you will screech and wail about how you should have the right to do to your body what you will, but that screeching and wailing ceases when it may affect the system of white supremacy. You’ll shut the fuck up then.

Also, I have covered this issue before and I am going to do something that I have never done and that is to include an entire blog post here and not just post a link because, FINALLY, someone got the memo.

WHAT ABOUT PLANNED FATHERHOOD?

 

I am going to be a mother
but I am just too young.
The father of my child
just stung me with his tongue.

He told me it was my fault.
Protection was for me to use.
How can I tell my family?
Their love for me, I’ll lose.

Oh where can I turn?
What help is there for me?
I heard about Planned Parenthood,
but will they help me out for free?

What services do they offer?
Should I seek advice from them?
Will they blame me for this shame?
Am I the guilty or the victim?

Answers, I need now
before it is too late.
The man can walk away
and leave me in this state.

Where’s the judgment on his ass?
What about Planned Fatherhood?
It takes two to make a baby!
That should be clearly understood!

I am getting real tired of this double standard bullshit! It would seem that Planned Parenthood is all about the ‘female’ role in the making of a baby because the female is the one whose life is going to be turned upside down no matter what she decides to do with the baby. If she decides to have the baby and she is either underage or single, she is going to have to figure out what to do and society will look at her as the slut who couldn’t keep her legs closed while the man who had a hand in this, as usual, gets to strut away like a peacock, on to the next.

If she decides to get an abortion, this is frowned upon because “Oh my goodness! I am just so self-righteous and the good book(Bible)that is burning up in my sinful hands due to all MY sins, tells me that I should stone this fallen woman, this slutty, whore who is no better than she should be! My stars! Back in my day, sluts weren’t running loose, opening their legs to every Tom, Dick and Harry that wished to crawl between them. We wore chastity belts until marriage! What is this sinful world coming to?”

Yep, that about covers the ‘christians’ view of an unwed mother-to-be. Nothing whatsoever is said about the ‘father’ who most definitely had a hand in the reason why the female is pregnant. No one is planning to defund ‘Planned Fatherhood’ because in reality, ‘Planned Parenthood’ is all about the ‘female’ in the equation and don’t we ALL know it. Planned PARENTHOOD, my ass! Planned MOTHERHOOD is what it’s ALL about!

Oh, there are probably some pamphlets about the ‘male’s role in conception’ in the offices of Planned Parenthood, sitting somewhere collecting dust on a shelf in the basement, but the primary focus is on care for the female if she decides to carry the child to full-term or with help in aborting the ‘fetus’.

And now, we have many a republican blow-hard threatening government shut-downs over de-funding Planned Parenthood, but would the same hell-raising antics be displayed if this was all over an agency called, ‘Planned Fatherhood’ where the male’s reproductive role is the primary focus? Of course not! Those hypocritical conservative bastards would sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up! But women’s rights and agencies that help women with regards to reproduction is always up for grabs and great for capturing headlines and getting the so-called ‘christian right’ all up-in-arms.

Here is an idea republican blow-hards, if you want to stop getting all hypocritically bent-out-of-shape over Planned Parenthood, fetal parts selling, abortions and whatnot, then announce the launch of an historically new concept; that of Planned Fatherhood, placing the emphasis on male contraceptives, male sterilization and male education on birth control and the consequences of going without it. Let’s see how many men line up and head through the doors to take responsibility for their role in the creation of life. Because in here, men don’t get a goddamn free pass, not a bit of it!

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

Not one man is featured on this site. As usual, contraception or birth control is ALWAYS aimed at the female. Women have come SO far in the year of no lord 2015!

And now that we are all distracted from the REAL issues of child poverty, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, a fucked up infrastructure, failed leadership, partisan politics, drone wars, refugee crises caused by U.S., police brutality, Mid East policy fuck-ups, a homeless epidemic, income inequality, low-wage part-time jobs, a shrinking jobs base and a host of other serious issues, we can continue to rail over the funding of Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Rome burns.


As you can see, I originally posted this blog in 2015  and here we are, 5 years later, still going around in circles. We are still sitting up listening to and putting up with the double standard bullshit hypocrisy from rich, old white men. They are still dictating to us all just what the hell should happen to our bodies. Regardless of whether or not you believe in a woman’s right to choose, remember this, it does indeed, take two to tango.

Men, get that vasectomy and shut the fuck up! And since Ted Cruz approves of the government  legislating a woman’s rights over her own body, then he should have no problem with the government legislating a man’s rights over his body by mandating vasectomies for men in order to stave off the need for women to seek abortions. If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander.

Time To Celebrate Black History Month AGAIN! Yeah, We Got It Going On!

Black History Holds NO Fame!

Dragged from your native land,
on a floating barge of death.
You built paradise for a thief
who then plundered all the wealth.

Your name was not your own.
You would never again be free.
To know such hate from them,
as they hung you from a tree.

They say that slavery’s over.
Go forth and earn your keep.
And though you labor long,
you’re valued much too cheap.

You were denied so many rights.
And the vote was not for you.
Though many marched and died,
the court bid that adieu.*

Some think you’ve made great strides
in the face of all that’s wrong.
Yet they herd you into prison,
because they hate that you are strong.

Be wary of their smiles,
for they mean you so much harm.
If you’ve a talent, they’ll exploit it.
All over you, they’ll swarm.

They’ll use you and they’ll kill you.
You’re nothing but a thing,
and when your candle’s burned
you’ll feel ole Massa’s sting.

Don’t ever let your guard down,
and it doesn’t pay to trust.
Shield from them your weakness.
Always show them your disgust.

Black history holds no fame.
And it certainly gets no cheer.
Times have never changed.
They still look at you and sneer.

*June 25th 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, removing a critical tool to combat racial discrimination in voting.

Where shall we begin? Let us celebrate the 11% unemployment rate for Black men even though the national unemployment aka jobless rate stands at 3.7% and if your head’s not stuck up your ass, then you know that even that is a damn lie! Break out the champagne Black folks for those of you who can afford a bottle of say, Andre Cold Duck! Clink those plastic cups together and then piss in the wind because it’s all blowing back your way anyway; the shit that keeps hitting the fan, that is.

Next on our celebration list is the shit that is going down in our public education system better known as the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ if you’re a student of color in these here United States of America where we celebrate Black History Month each and every February. This month is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of Black people in America. We are celebrating each and every single achievement that has not yet occurred but will eventually occur and we are real sure of this happening any day now.

To continue the celebrations, let us look at the child poverty statistics that are sure to impress us during these celebrations of future achievements that we are hell bent on celebrating this month. We are celebrating the fact that ‘child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death’. And if that isn’t bad enough, ‘7 million kids still don’t have health insurance’. This is just so worth celebrating, what an achievement! What a dream as opposed to a nightmare. I wonder what that famous man who had a dream, would think of this. I seriously wonder.

But wait! There is more to celebrate this Black History Month! The good news just keeps on coming. ‘Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average’ is still making headlines among Black prisoners and their mostly white guards and the white slave patrol that arrested them for say, selling loose, un-taxed cigarettes, selling marijuana or crack while completely ignoring the white man that was buying said crack and marijuana from the guilty by birth African-American other wise known as Colored otherwise known as Black otherwise known as felon or prisoner no.1,000,034. White folks, why don’t you just lock up every single Black person at birth? It’ll save you the trouble of doing so later on since many of us will know what it feels like to be shackled just as those we are descended from knew what it felt like. And the beat goes on and we celebrate it.

And ‘here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People’, now ain’t that a bitch?! Unfortunately, Michael Brown is not here to celebrate this Black History Month with us because he was shot and killed by a cop. Twelve year old Tamir Rice is also not here this year to help us celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop while playing with a toy gun in a park. John Crawford, likewise, is not here to celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop in Wal-Mart while holding a toy gun.  Eric Garner, unfortunately, for him, was selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and that cost him his life and so he will not be joining in the celebrations. Terrance Franklin was shot and killed by cops following a traffic stop and he will not be celebrating ether. Seven year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was shot  and killed by a cop while she slept and the charge of manslaughter against the cop that shot and killed her was dropped and so, she is not just ‘under-the-weather’, she is underground and therefore, is not able to celebrate this historic month. Let us celebrate on her behalf. Sandra Bland is not here to celebrate with us because she was hanged in a Texas jail cell. So many are not here to witness all of the achievements that we celebrate today that have not as yet occurred. But we are sure that any minute now, we shall achieve….something. Yeah! Wait on it.

Fortunately, I have found yet another statistic that gives us even more of a reason to celebrate Black history month. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless. We have come so far this February in the year of our Lord 2020, have we not? Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Doesn’t that just give you a warm and comfortable, cozy feeling that those homeless people lack? These are achievements that we have here folks! Time to celebrate and to keep the momentum going. Our ancestors would be so proud of where we are today. Don’t you think? Does this not make you aware that BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER?!

Now, on the other hand, Tyler Perry will dress up in drag and put some Black folks to work on another Madea movie and Beyoncé will croon about a Halo for Jay-Z and Jay-Z will rap about niggas while DMX will head back to prison for drug possession, get out on probation again and then go right back in for drug possession. Viola Davis will have no problem getting cast as yet another maid after her role in ‘The Help’ and Forest Whitaker is probably all set to play yet another version of someone’s Butler since every one is well aware that us Black folks are so good at bowing and scraping and being subservient to our ‘betters’.

Finally, I’ve given you many reasons to celebrate this month. The reasons are endless and our achievements that we will watch for some time in the future are making life much better for so many of us and that is why we must enjoy this Black History Month. We have no need to march and protest like those Black people in the 1960s did. We are so past that in this here post-racial America. I mean, what we have here is a post-racial America, is it not? But nevertheless, Dr. King would be so proud as would his stalwart, fellow marchers-in-arms at the progress that we have made since his infamous, I Have A Dream speech. We shall overcome! Uh…what I meant to say is that, “We did overcome!” Now like the good little sheep you are, start celebrating all of this shit!! And look ahead to when the REAL achievements will come because surely they must come!

 

Lawsuits Have Been Filed Over Trump Cutting Food Stamp Benefits….AGAIN!

 

I am pretty sure that those lawsuits are from agencies that help feed the poor and hungry and who are most terribly upset that the poor and hungry are going to starve thanks to Donald Trump’s latest round of food stamp benefit cuts. And as we can see, before Trump is finished, the piddling little safety net that was still in place is going to be gone! So let’s now take a look at who is suing the Trump Administration over food stamp benefit cuts and why.

Slashing Food Stamps Hurts The Poor And Their Supermarkets

A coalition of 14 states, New York City and the District of Columbia, have filed a lawsuit challenging the rule. The lawsuit notes that cuts to the $61 billion food stamp program will have a ripple effect on grocery stores.

WHAT????!!!! The lawsuits were not filed on behalf of the millions who may be impacted by Trump’s cuts to the food stamp program, the lawsuits were filed because of the “ripple effect on grocery stores?” Damn the hungry people; children and all, the focus must be on protecting capitalism and in order to do that, keep those food stamps coming because the corporate bottom line is going to suffer. Children suffering from hunger pangs? Who cares? Mothers needing food to eat in order to go out and work to keep a roof over their children’s head? Who cares? The concern is only for the supermarkets that will take a hit over the loss of those food stamp benefits.

Folks, this is the world we live in today and I for one, don’t mind if the world ends today because I have had it with this shit! People can just starve to death! Never mind that, but the corporate bottom line must be protected at all costs.

I have known hunger and may do so again. I have had to go to work with my stomach growling and I was walking to work with the soles of my $2 sneakers all but gone and one toe had pushed its way up out of the top and yet, there I was, walking to work with just a thin jacket on in the dead of winter and I knew that when I got back home, there was no need to open the freezer or the fridge or even the cupboard as there would be nothing in either one for me to eat and I would have to get up the next day and trudge along. And unfortunately, this is the plight for many, even those who don’t live in America.

I just read a blog about hunger and this lady does not even live in America and she has been hungry for some time. Hunger is no laughing matter! Have you seen the price of ‘food’ lately? This is not the time to be cutting food stamp benefits. People are dying for lack of food. If there are so many charities out there, then why are people still so food insecure? One of the reasons is that in order to access food from food shelves, food pantries and the like, one must first fill out applications and get approved. Did you read that? People must get approved before they can take food home. These charities must process applications to make sure that people are poor enough to make use of their food pantries and food banks in order to take food home. I’m not saying that ALL of them are requiring that people fill out applications, but quite a few insist that people go through an approval process before they can take food with them. There is an all out war being waged against the poor and that war is being ramped up with each Administration serving the rich at the expense of the poor. Donald Trump just recently handed a windfall to already wealthy, rich whites in the form of tax cuts and to pay for those tax cuts for the filthy rich, the abject poor must take another hit.

Why don’t you look up from those damn phones and take a look around at what is happening ALL around the world? Everything is going to hell in a hand basket while you sit there and scroll down a damn smartphone screen that’s taken the place of your brains. We don’t need a plague to turn our asses into zombies. We already are zombies, only we are such dumb zombies that we are not stumbling around trying to chomp on brains because no one has any.  And the reason why we have no brains is because for those of us who can afford to put food on the table, that food is poison. It is toxic to our bodies. Even the soil we use, for those of us who are lucky enough to grow our own food, is toxic because the white man has seen to it that no blade of grass, no soil on any continent is worth a damn. We are ALL walking toxin factories thanks to what whites have set in motion that has caused this planet to become a toxic waste dump as opposed to what it was originally, paradise. Everything that we needed to be strong and healthy was right on this planet but because whites were sent here to destroy us and it, this is the result; a toxic waste dump. Look at who is causing ALL the suffering ALL across this planet. Take a good look! And yet, we want to live by their example. Seriously???!!! The rest of us need not have taken up their sorry ass habits. We should have fought back against them with all that we had. And now, it’s damn late to be attempting to reverse the damage that whites have wrought all across this planet on the Innocent.

Everything with whites is ALWAYS all about the bottom line and to hell with anyone and everyone who is not rich and pasty. Who are ALL the billionaires? Who are the ones who can afford to use their billions to launch a presidential campaign just because they long for relevancy and want to derail the outcome of an election? Who is ALWAYS gutting social programs that help those who have been touted as the beneficiaries of those programs when the whites make more use of those programs than anyone else because they make damn sure that we don’t qualify? And yet we are put on display by the whites as the face of social programs when nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t care how brain dead you are, even your brain dead stupid ass should be able to see what the hell’s going down. And for those of you who still claim not to see this shit, the only thing I can do is “Heave A Sigh!”

 

I Heave A Sigh!

I heave a sigh for the hungry children,
who will go without a meal tonight.
I heave a sigh for the sick, old man,
who’ll be dead before morning’s light.

I heave a sigh for those who are jobless.
And for the ones who are out on the street.
I heave a sigh for those who are in cages
and for whom the word freedom, is obsolete.

I heave a sigh for a world in distress
because the needs of the many aren’t met.
I heave a sigh for the broken and forgotten
and for the homeless Vietnam vet.

I heave a sigh because my pen runs dry.
My voice is silenced by a deafening snore.
I heave a sigh because I don’t understand
why we cannot help the weak and the poor.

…..I heave a sigh!!!

Food stamps are being cut AGAIN! The hunger problem in America is about to get even worse as food shelves are already stretched. The programs that help those in need, including children, are being gutted every year and it does not matter if there is a republican or a democrat at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. The military budget is more important because killing will always remain America’s top priority. And for those who are caught up in a never ending struggle for survival amidst all the lavishness and decadence displayed by the ‘powerful’, who grin at your plight and spit in your face, I heave a sigh and my pen is drained from bemoaning your fate!

…..I heave a sigh!!!

What Was Achieved By All The Marching And Protesting By Dr. King And Others?

 

A few years ago, I wrote a poem about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and that poem elicited some comments that basically intimated that Dr. King and all the others who were part of the Civil Rights struggle actually made no gains, period. Now, we can argue over it all day and all night as to whether or not Dr. King and crew were successful in their endeavors, but one thing I would like you to do is to continue reading and decide for yourself. And I will give Dr. King one thing, he tried….. something. Whether or not it was the right thing? You tell me.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Of Dr. King, we are just so proud.
That man, he always drew a crowd.
He paved the way to a much brighter day.
His dream is alive in every way.

Tamir Rice is here to tell his story.
And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry,
that her life will be snuffed out in a cell,
because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.

Michael Brown is in college where he belongs.
Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs.
Walter Scott is still driving down the street.
Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.

They all owe their lives to Dr. King.
He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!”
On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time.
And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.

We thank him for the debt he willingly paid,
and for all the sacrifices he and his family made.
But what we will never know for certain,
is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain,
on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind,
and where Blacks are still left so far behind.
This play will not have a happy ending,
for its ending is just like its beginning.

Behold, the face of slavery is still Black.
And as in days of old, we are under attack.
But a man had a dream for which he died.
Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!

I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there to celebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?

And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of you ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!

The above is what I also posted along with the poem and next, I am going to post a comment about this particular post and my response.

I’ve always looked at MLK with curious eye because my parent were both Black Panthers when I was growing up and Dr. King was almost forbidden in my house. I only saw him as an on bent knee begging white people for some table scraps and to please not hit us anymore. Though growing up, I’ve come to understand him a bit better and my only thought now about the man is, “praying has brought Black peoples nothing but dirty knees and empty pockets.”

shelbycourtland’s response:

HLJ, this isn’t so much about me revering Dr. King as it is about exposing the blatant and outrageous hypocrisy of the ‘whites’. They are the very ones who go on and on about Dr. King’s ‘dream’ when it is quite obvious that they gave not a damn for the man nor his dream. They spout useless rhetoric each and every time the holiday in his name comes around and that is all they do. And while they are doing this, the continuation of enslavement of Black people continues, the continuation of the Negro status as that of 3rd class ‘citizen’ continues. We aren’t even tolerated in this shithole. We are incarcerated and murdered and yet the ‘whites’ go on and on about how thankful Blacks should be since we are supposedly living in the ‘greatest nation on earth’. I fucking beg to differ with that assessment. Black people are a people without a country. We are enslaved in a system that is corrupt to its core and is filled with racist filth and we are expected to subjugate ourselves to criminals of the worst kind.

Dr. King was but a tool and he was used to put down any attempt at an insurrection, a rebellion or a revolution. The ‘whites’ condoned the actions of Dr. King because he was their namby-pamby house Negro; the same as Barack Obama and all the rest of the coon head sell-outs that bow and scrape to the ‘white’ motherfuckers and lick their boots clean while scrabbling for their table scraps at the same time. I am not giving any accolades to Dr. King because he was no revolutionary, he was a stooge. My poem is a sarcastic and antonymous portrayal of Dr. King. That is why I stated that because of Dr. King, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Walter Scott and so many others have him to ‘thank’ for their lives. My point is to also show how far we have NOT come even with these so-called ‘movements’ that are merely fake assed props that are put in place to give Black people the illusion that they are actually doing something constructive to put a stop to the genocide of them by the ‘whites’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. King was just a figurehead, a prop; complete with suit and tie and bible. He was the ‘white’ mans house nigger and he did a fine of job of spreading the ‘white’ man’s propaganda of telling Black people to go about effecting change, all peaceful like. And when his usefulness was over, they fucking killed him just to show that a gun is aimed at us at ALL times because we are still their property! Fuck ’em!

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

Good post. A lot of us at least have some idea of the real deal with him but too many don’t. They could start looking at what really happened with the march on Washington. They should ask themselves why do we only hear of one person from that era? I also think someone else wrote most of his famous speeches? While he stayed with mostly the same approach, Dr. King had doubts about a lot of what he had said earlier before his death.

How long will we keep marching? Those of us who are marching need to stop. When will we get to the “Dream”?

Is this another white Jesus thing? To be fair, there were black Christians who pretty much can’t be criticized but his approach seemed to be pulled straight from parts of the Bible that even those who believe in the BIble find hard to justify(I myself don’t believe in those passages or the books that contained them).

shelbycourtland’s response:

They can consider Dr. King to have been a figurehead, a Civil Rights leader, a scapegoat or what have you, but his sole purpose was to misdirect Black people’s anger away from fucking shit up but instead focused it on ‘peacefully’ marching down the goddamn street of every pothole filled city in this shithole. You don’t hear the ‘whites’ screaming and jumping up and down about setting aside a day in which to honor Malcolm X. And you won’t! Malcolm X was not going on and on about some ‘peaceful’ this and ‘peaceful’ that. He had some harsh words for those vile ‘white’ shits that have firmly planted their boot on our Black ass and refuse to lift it.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary who believed in violent resistance, he believed in getting things done ‘by any means necessary’. That is why he said, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t worked. And we ALL fucking know what it would take but the revolutionaries of the ’60s are either dead or still locked up and so we just dutifully continue with the useless ass marches and protests with signs dating back 50 years when not a goddamn thing is going to change simply because we are holding up a sign. What has #BLACKLIVESMATTER accomplished? Not a goddamn thing!

Thank you for your comment N.S.

As I have stated before, peruse this content to your heart’s content and then think about the state that Black Amerikkka is in today and you tell me, did ALL of that marching and protesting lead to ANY gains? And if so, how so? Where are they? Black people are more asleep today than than they were in the  60s thanks to dumb ass rap music, pretend beefs among so-called Black celebrities, Youtube madness, Twitter and Facebook mess and the like is endless. There is only moaning and whining coming from Black Amerikkka when Black people do eventually look up and realize how fucked we are that is until another distraction down the pike; another Black Panther Movie or Madea bullshit movie from the likes of Tyler Perry’s faggot ass! That shit, we don’t need. Hell! Damn near half of Black Amerikkka has no idea why today is being ‘celebrated’. Check this shit out!

Just skip to the five minute mark when she says, “The kids are out of school on Monday and we don’t even know why.” Also, her sixteen year old daughter did not even know why she is out of school today. Seriously???!!!! Too busy staring down at shit on a phone, most likely is the reason and the mother is just too dizzy for words.

This is what we have to work with these days and it is quite obvious, that we have nothing to work with. So you tell me, what was it all for? Cluelessness? Ignorance? Gluttony? Youtube channels? Twitter? Facebook?

Black Amerikkka is dealing with rabid racism, gentrification, income inequality, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, disparities in healthcare, child poverty, a homeless epidemic, crime infested neighborhoods, drugs and gangs and prostitution that is out-of-control and the list of the like is endless and yet, here we are ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. For what? And in less than two weeks, we shall be expected to ‘celebrate ‘Black History Month’. Why? Because I have just described  ‘Black History’ up to present day and so what is there to celebrate? You tell me. I can’t wait.

 

 

And As The Seconds Tick Away Towards The New Year…- A Repost

 

As I raise my flute in drunken glee,
I look upon what was once a live tree.
So concerned with this planet and global warming,
my resolution to do better can wait til morning.

For tonight, I celebrate with friends and acquaintances,
spreading well wishes and exchanging whispered confidences.
The wrongs of this world, for just one night
can wait a little longer for us to do what’s right.

A sick child with no health care will have to hold on
until I open my bleary eyes to greet the new dawn.
The Black man being dragged by the Ku Klux Klan
should have seen them coming, he should have ran.

Of course I care about the people who have addictions
just like I care about my neighbor who can’t afford her prescriptions.
I know about the homeless who have formed a tent city.
But for just this night, champagne will take away my pity.
And as the seconds tick away towards the New Year,
even champagne cannot stop me from shedding another tear.

I wrote this one because as we celebrate the ringing out of the old and in with the new, I cannot help but believe that more misery, cruelty, suffering, chaos, war and all things of horror, will follow us into this new year and beyond, for what will have changed?

As we head to our parties tonight, break out our party favors and drink our champagne toasts at midnight, wish each other a “Happy New Year,” are we really going to think that this year will be any happier than 2019 or 2018 or 2017? What is going to change to get us to actually mean it when we say, “Happy New Year?” It will be just another year of the same because we won’t change. We will continue in our old ways of ignoring those who are less fortunate. We will pretend as though there are not wars being fought just because. We will never for a minute think that we have aided and abetted in the destruction of this planet through our selfish acts as we scream, “Happy New Year To One And All!” If we really meant that, we’d know it because it would show, but when you look around, does it show? Does it look as though we give a damn about the children who go to bed, hungry? Does it look like we give a damn about the homeless? Does it look like we care about those who are in unimaginable pain because they have no health insurance? Does it look like we are going to start doing something to hold our elected representatives accountable for the way they continuously make the working poor pay for the idleness of the rich? Does it look like the ‘new year’ will bring about a change in the human psyche which seems hell bent on self-destruction? If any of you ponder these questions, I already know what the outcome will be. Exactly how you were in 2017, 2018, 2019 is how you will be in 2020 and on and on it will go until they plant you. Because we are always going to wait til tomorrow to ‘do’ better. Just like each and every year, we are bombarded with ads to lose weight and get in shape and some people actually make a resolution to do just that and then after a month, what happens? Back to square one. We’re pathetic!

And so, I will not say, “Happy New Year!” I will merely say, “Welcome to the rest of your lives!” War, misery, homelessness, joblessness, starvation, income inequality, racism, ignorance, selfishness, arrogance, greed, lust, apathy and complacency and your solutions to getting through all of this; heroin, crack, alcohol, weed, mass murder and suicide.

“Welcome, To The Rest Of Your Lives! Cheers!”

Trump To The Friends And Family Of The El Paso, TX And Dayton, OH Mass Shooting Victims, “Mental Illness Killed Your Loved Ones!”

So, according to Donald Trump, white supremacy is a mental illness and to cure white supremacy mental illness, treat it like you would if whites only had affluenza,

1.af·flu·en·za
1.a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy ‘white’ young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation.

And so now we have white supremacyenza, a psychological malaise affecting racist whites, symptoms of which include posting white nationalist manifestos on Facebook, acquiring massive stock piles of assault rifles, hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition due to the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups and therefore, all other groups should be targeted for annihilation and so get to shooting.

To cure this affliction, the subject should be given a few therapeutic sessions on a couch, some anti-white supremacy medications, a pat on the head and be released back into society, so suggests Donald Trump.

Trump focuses on combating mental illness over new gun-control measures

He outlined a number of possible steps, including so-called “red-flag laws,” that focus on better identifying mentally ill people who should not be allowed to purchase firearms.

“Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger. Not the gun,” said Trump, who did not take questions from reporters.

Inciting racists and fanning the flames of hatred have no impact on why white males have been going on mass shooting sprees or so Trump would have us believe. He is as usual assuming no responsibility for what he has encouraged with his racist rhetoric. To get re-elected, he has stated that members of hate groups were “good people,” even as their actions led to murder when a member of said group used his car to mow down protesters that resulted in one death in Charlottesville, VA. His racist rhetoric at his rallies has promoted discord among attendees resulting in numerous fights breaking out.

Meanwhile, violence across America escalates to the point whereas in Chicago, a hospital had to go on “on bypass” due to the fact that too many people had gotten shot and the hospital could not take in any more gun shot victims.

Chicago hospital stops accepting patients after trauma center is overwhelmed with shooting victims
Chicago’s Mount Sinai Hospital temporarily stopped accepting patients Sunday morning because they were at capacity following a series of shootings, a hospital official said.

The hospital went “on bypass” in the early morning, said Roberta Rakove, Senior VP for External Affairs.

Hospitals use the term “on bypass” when they stop accepting ambulance runs and those ambulances are diverted to other trauma centers. Mount Sinai Hospital is one of five trauma centers in Chicago.

So while folks were getting shot to death in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, multiple people were getting shot in Chicago to the point whereas one hospital was so overwhelmed with trauma victims that it could accept no more. When are we going to understand that we have a serious problem in America? When will the endless rhetoric about mental illness committing mass murder cease and those like Trump and others who make up the GOP start calling it what it is? When is the lamestream media going to call itself out for helping to perpetuate this whacked shit by sensationalizing it? When are we going to realize that all of this so-called mass surveillance of us is being used for other purposes since it damn sure as hell is not being used to stop mass shootings? With cameras everywhere and with the NSA supposedly spying on our every keystroke, one would think that someone, somewhere would have knowledge about this shit before it takes place. Why is it that white nationalist manifestos posted on Facebook and other so-called social media sites are always found AFTER the shooter has killed his targets? Why are our tax dollars being wasted paying for the Department of Homeland Security, The National Security Agency, The Federal Bureau of Investigation and even the Pentagon since they are doing fuck all about stopping these killers that have posted their intent for ALL the world to see? Those government agencies are not dropping the ball on this shit, they are deliberately letting this shit happen. Why else is the Pentagon claiming that it has launched unmanned surveillance balloons only in an effort to locate drug pushers? Why not use that surveillance shit to monitor hate groups?

Pentagon launching drug surveillance balloons over Midwest

The Pentagon is testing the high-altitude, solar-powered balloons across six states, The Guardian reported on Friday.

The balloons were launched to provide “a persistent surveillance system” for narcotic trafficking and homeland security threats, according to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission.

So, while white nationalists are online posting white nationalist manifestos that reveal that they have amassed a shitload of weapons and are about to shoot up some folks, the massive surveillance system installed by the Pentagon is only aimed at locating “narcotic traffickers?” Seriously???!!! They had that shit up in the Midwest while dude was in the Midwest shooting up people in Dayton, OH and they didn’t see dude with a gun since their spy shit can carry sensors and communication gear capable of detecting every vehicle in motion in a 25-mile range beneath the balloon, but cannot detect a guy carrying a high-powered assault weapon? I demand my goddamn tax money back that paid for that shit!

Meanwhile a cousin of two victims who were shot dead in Dayton, OH has a message for Donald “mental illness killed your cousins” Trump!

Unfortunately, his message falls on deaf ears and is only good for soundbites. And soon, if the stock market continues to free fall thanks to Chinese tariffs, even this will no longer be news.

A person who wishes to remain anonymous asked me to post a poem that I wrote and though I had posted that poem for other reasons, they thought that it was fitting for what is going down because people are now extra fearful over going about their daily lives what with hate being spewed, left and right from the halls of congress and especially from the WhiteRight House. I don’t think any poem is going to help matters in this country as things have gone beyond crazy and there will never be anything to approach rationality. However, I will post the poem.

Fear Is Not A Halloween Mask!

Fear is not a Halloween mask,
nor is it a walk through a graveyard.
Fear is waking up behind a dumpster
knowing that you can never let down your guard.

Fear is not ghosts and ghouls in fiction books,
nor is it a jack-o’-lantern’s evil grin.
Fear is having a pain in your side
and a bullet mark on your skin.

Fear is not a witch riding on a broom,
nor is it a cauldron boiling hot.
Fear is looking into the eyes of a killer
right before you’re about to get shot.

Fear is not a vampire biting on a neck,
nor is it a movie about a Nightmare On Elm Street.
Fear is the life you live of desperation,
hopelessness, misery and defeat.

No, we don’t need Halloween
to bring out the fear in our lives.
All we need do is live another day
to know real fear and why it thrives.

So no, we don’t need Halloween to bring out the fear in our lives. All we need do is face another day to know real fear and why it thrives. It thrives because hate thrives. That hate is meant to induce fear. And hate thrives because there are those who incite others to act out on their hate, whether it is to get elected or re-elected or to promote an agenda of an ‘all white Amerikkka’ or for some other reason. Fear is a real part of our lives, the fear of just going to the store to shop for back-to-school items and realizing that anyone can be carrying a high-powered assault weapon ready to aim it at us because Americans are armed to the teeth. The calls for gun control are too little, too late because as I have already stated, Americans are armed to the teeth. And now people are beginning to fear ‘living’ since it is quite clear that hatred kills and hatred is everywhere!

Welcome to AmeriKKKA! Why would you want to come here??!!
