Thousands in GOP-led states lost Medicaid coverage this month

 

Trump supporters and those who vote for republicans are set to join their ranks.

Medicaid rolls set to be slashed under Trump-approved work rules

The thousands of people who lost Medicaid coverage this month in Arkansas for not following newly implemented work requirements may be a sign of what’s to come in other GOP-led states.

Indiana and New Hampshire are slated to implement their Medicaid work requirements next year, and a slew of other states are awaiting approval from the Trump administration.

Arkansas has served as a test case of sorts since it was the first state to implement work requirements, and this month it became the first state to kick off beneficiaries for not following them.

The state removed more than 4,000 people from the Medicaid rolls, with some estimates saying that number could climb to 50,000 when the requirements are fully implemented in 2019.

The article goes on to state that “Of those who lost coverage this month, about 95 percent didn’t file the necessary documents with the state. That led to their removal from Medicaid.”

So because those people were working and did not file the necessary paperwork, they were kicked off Medicaid? Or it could be that they had no internet access which is prevalent in rural areas where most people vote republican. Now, you and your children are without medical coverage even as you work minimum wage jobs that obviously qualify you for Medicaid but because Trump and the republicans don’t give a damn about you, AGAIN, you are now without medical coverage.

Tell me this. How is attending Trump rallies and railing against Black people helping you when you’re ill and cannot afford to head to the doctor? Trump stands somewhere, not even pretending to give a damn about you, but because he embodies everything you stand for as it pertains to racism, bigotry, prejudice and hatred, you will follow him to an illness for which you cannot receive treatment because Trump and his cronies have implemented new rules that require you to fill out paperwork before you can access Medicaid and if you don’t, then too bad, so sad and all you do is continue to laud Trump and the GOP as the second coming of ‘Christ’? You really are stupid and unfortunately, even with medical coverage, there seems to be no cure for stupid.

Trump and the GOP are doing everything possible to bring pain, suffering, misery and death to their supporters while their supporters are hanging on to Trump for dear life as if by doing so, that is going to keep them from needing to seek the attentions of a medical doctor because apparently, they are going to be cured by simply looking at Trump. Yeah! That’s going to work!

While Trump and the GOP led congress just handed over a windfall for the wealthiest in America, which certainly did not exclude shareholders of corporations who are to receive even bigger dividend checks, those who are the poor working stiff supporters of Trump got the shaft, again. Not to mention the fact that Trump lied when he said that he would not benefit from the tax plan, when in fact, he does which was the intent when this tax plan was crafted.

9 ways Trump’s tax plan is a gift to the rich, including himself

“No, I don’t benefit. I don’t benefit,” Trump said. “In fact, very, very strongly, as you see, I think there’s very little benefit for people of wealth.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tex.), who was part of the team that worked with the White House to craft the tax-overhaul outline, was asked a similar question on Fox News. He, too, said this plan does little to help the rich.

“I think those who benefit most are middle-class families struggling to keep every dollar they earn,” Brady told Fox News.

But one look at this plan tells a very different story. It gives an outright tax cut to the wealthiest Americans and it preserves almost all of the most popular loopholes they use to reduce their tax bills.

As some of you can see, those  of you who don’t have their heads shoved up their ass or who cannot see beyond the foam emanating from their mouths thanks to rabid hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice, Trump has done more to feather his already well-feathered nest and has done nothing but cause his base to get into an uproar over immigration, border walls and draining the swamp, which of course was a distraction meant to distract his base from the pain he intended to inflict on them. And by the way, what swamp would that be, the one BEFORE Trump took office or the one Trump now needs to drain thanks to what he in turn, re-filled the swamp with? Trump’s swamp is no better than the one he claimed he was going to drain. What we have seen floating to the top of Trump’s swamp, trumps that of his predecessor and that’s saying something.

But by all accounts, dark days are here for everyone who is not ‘earning’ over $400,000 a year and so those supporters of Trump and the GOP who are not in that income bracket are now having to deal with no medical coverage, food stamp work requirements that mostly hurt children and the fact that Trump is only just getting started. Go ahead, continue showing up at Trump’s rallies, ignorant to what he is doing to you and your families until it is too late and you find yourself with your teeth falling out and too sick to make it in to work. And though you may think that the Emergency Room is going to take care of you because of a ‘no one is to be turned away’ policy, I wouldn’t count on that if I were you because I have known plenty who have been turned away from Emergency Rooms and who then died after the hospital called the police on them to escort their broke, sick ass out of there. No one came to their rescue and Trump and his GOP cronies damn sure are not coming to yours. He has reduced your food stamps that you need to help feed your families because Walmart’s and Amazon’s wages just don’t cut it and now he is cutting your Medicaid off because, as he so proudly stated, he wants to “Make AmeriKKKa Great Again!” That slogan is truly catching, isn’t it? I just hope you don’t ‘catch’ the flu this season. You’ve no medical coverage. Ain’t that great?

How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

Originally posted on #Monetary Sovereignty – Mitchell: . It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed And the treachery of their leaders ============================================================================ You endlessly have been told that Medicare and Social Security Trust funds will, in the near future, run short of money unless benefits are decreased…

via How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

My belief (which I have stated before) is that there is a new global economic realignment happening and the US is being left out – which is why the conditions of Americans’ lives are deteriorating so rapidly. The fact that the entire US infrastructure is computerized has left the country extremely vulnerable – which makes it extremely difficult to predict which system will collapse first – the energy or the telecommunications grid. – Dr. Stuart Bramhall

Wise words, indeed! And true! Quite frankly, I cannot wait for ALL grids to collapse. That is what is needed because the hypnotized Americans are not going to realize how fucked they are until their smartphones go dead and the lights go out. When they can no longer gas up the SUV, there will be hell to pay as well. They’ll wake the fuck up then. Donald Trump’s administration, just as all previous administrations that raided Social Security and threw in worthless IOUs that I couldn’t even use as decent toilet tissue, is also coming for Social Security.  Social Security and Medicare are not on the point of insolvency. The government prints money out of thin air and can just print more money. It has no problem printing money to throw at the U.S. Military Industrial Complex and yet, we are to believe that no monies can be found for Social Security and Medicare? Don’t believe this bullshit and don’t leave it up to the sick ass seniors to save your Social Security and Medicare because it is always left up to the old and infirm to hobble down the street with pitchforks in hand while clutching walkers and canes at the same time. This will impact US all if we allow Trump and the GOP to get away with lying that Social Security and Medicare are about to go belly up. That is simply not true.

And as the number of those living in poverty climbs, the last remaining safety net programs, such as they are, will be sorely needed especially seeing as how even the United Nations issued a shocking report, though not shocking to me, as to the extent of poverty in the United States which was quickly slammed by the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has taken umbrage at a new United Nations report that examines entrenched poverty in the United States and calls the number of children living in poverty “shockingly high.” She called the analysis a “misleading and politically motivated document.”

A Washington Post article said that the report, written by U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston, says the United States tops the developed world with the highest rates of youth poverty, infant mortality, incarceration, income inequality and obesity. He also said that the Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty.

Let me repeat this part! “The Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty,” which means that, like I’ve already stated, Trump and the GOP are coming for Social Security and Medicare which will only ‘deepen poverty’ and too many Americans are living in extreme poverty as it is. While congress enjoys designer health care coverage and a great pension for life, the biggest class growth is the ‘poverty class’ and America is fast becoming a 3rd World nation. The situation is so bad that hookworm has been discovered in America again.

The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s. Hookworm is most common in developing nations in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America.[2] Areas with poor sanitation, water treatment, and plumbing/sewage infrastructure are especially at risk.  And now, hookworm is also “typically found in the developing country called, ‘America’! For the love of !!!!

What in the world is hookworm? A parasitic nematode worm that inhabits the intestines of humans and other animals. It has hooked mouthparts with which it attaches itself to the wall of the gut, puncturing the blood vessels and feeding on the blood.

And yet Nikki Haley said,

“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America. In our country, the President, Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, and City Council members actively engage on poverty issues every day. Compare that to the many countries around the world, whose governments knowingly abuse human rights and cause pain and suffering.”

Americans are walking around with hookworm that is ‘most commonly found in developing nations’ and so according to Nikki Haley, “it is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America?” That skank is a depraved, soulless monster as is anyone who works for the Trump Administration and who condones what Trump stands for. I have never seen the like in all my born days! What the hell is wrong with US when we will sit still for this?

None of you see the writing on the wall? Are you that dense? Are your smartphones and personal assistants that distracting that you can’t see what is right in front of your very eyes? First they came for the seniors and the disabled and then they will come for you! You’d better be understanding this! Your smartphone is not going to pay your rent when robots and automation have taken your jobs. Your personal assistant, Alexa, is not going to be able to house and feed you when you lose your income and Social Security is not there to at least, help out in some small way. Obamacare is on life support and so what are you going to do if Trump and the GOP get their way and destroy Medicare? Ask Siri what to do? Yeah! Get your prescription for hookworm from Siri! Your ass is just going to be dropping worms everywhere and don’t damn well come near me with that shit!

No one in the Trump administration gives a damn about any of us who are not multi-millionaires. The United States would rather pull out of the United Nations Council on Human Rights than listen to reports that gives a clear picture in that the United States is descending into 3rd World conditions. They are making excuses that other countries should be looked at for their human rights abuses and how dare anyone confirm what many of us know and that is that the United States has already descended into 3rd World conditions for too many people, including children. Millions of people are living in deep poverty here in the states. Does that have no meaning for you whatsoever? SIGH! I throw my hands up!

Roseanne Barr‏: ‘I’m Not a Racist, I Never Was & I Never Will Be Even When I Call Black People, “Apes!”

Roseanne Barr took to Twitter after she had decided to leave Twitter when her tweet went viral likening former President Barack Obama’s top aide, Valerie Jarrett to an ‘ape’.

“muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”

Upon her quick return to Twitter, Barr stated,

‘I’m Not a Racist, I Never Was & I Never Will Be’ so there!”

Donald Trump weighed in on what Barr said, and as usual with Trump, he made it ALL about him.

President Donald Trump has broken his silence on the cancellation of “Roseanne.”

In a tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC’s parent Walt Disney Co., called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn’t tolerate Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about the former Obama adviser.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for “the HORRIBLE statements” that have been said about him on ABC. Tweeted Trump: “Maybe I just didn’t get the call.”

Of course Trump would stand by one of his favorite racists especially since Roseanne Barr is everything Trump needs in a supporter; racist to a T!

Meanwhile, people are wondering what Valerie Jarrett had to say about all of this. Jarrett stated that she had been too busy to even know that Roseanne Barr had tweeted about her, but when asked for a response, had this to say, “

I feel “fine” but I feel concerned for people without “friends and followers who come right to their defense” who experience “ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day.”

“I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment.”

Unfortunately, as Roseanne Barr claimed her fellow cast members threw her under the bus, she also tried to throw the makers of the sleep aid, Ambien, under the bus by stating that she was “Ambien tweeting” while sleepless at 2:00a.m. when, apparently, racism took over. The makers of Ambien,  fired back with: “Racism is not a side effect of Ambien. Though drugs have side effects, racism is not one of them with Ambien. That shit’s on you!”

And now that we are all distracted by that gutter trash and her racist tweets and whether or not her hillbilly, redneck, white trash show has been canceled or will be tweaked, we can forget about all the horrors of what is going on in the world, what with floods in the south, a volcano erupting on the mainland of Hawaii, storm systems forming early in the Atlantic Ocean that does not bode well for areas that were hard hit by severe storms last year and about the fact that the government lied again about the true numbers of Puerto Ricans who died thanks in part to Hurricane Maria. The government’s tally was 64 and anyone with more than two brain cells connected and working should have known that that was just a bunch of hooey. A new study by a group of independent researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and other institutions estimates roughly 4,600 people died, many from delayed medical care.

We ALL know that racism is alive and doing extremely well and will never be on life support in AmeriKKKa. We ALL know that Donald Trump is racist as hell! We ALL know that shows like Roseanne appeal to a certain base even though I have heard that the show focuses on poverty and other social ills. I can only go on what I have read since I have never sat down and watched one episode of the old version of Roseanne, nor have I watched an episode of the reboot. I would not even if someone paid me to watch the likes of Roseanne Barr. Nevertheless, here in America, our lives revolve around what we see on TV and that is why I guess that every Black Friday, Americans can be seen beating each other up to purchase yet another TV so that they can watch a racist appeal to Donald Trump and those like him all the while disguising this with attempts to portray the lives of people in poverty who are trying to survive job loss, a lack of health coverage to cover major illnesses and other societal ills.

Many real people are on the verge of homelessness. Many real people have health problems and no health care coverage. Many real people go to bed homeless at night. Many real people will soon join the dead in Puerto Rico when new hurricanes form and lay waste to island nations while we sit somewhere and scream obscenities and racist remarks back and forth on some stupid entity like Twitter. This is indeed why I no longer despair FOR U.S. I despair OF U.S. When will you people ever learn that distractions distract you for a reason?

On May 29th, Starbucks closed their doors for four whole hours so that workers could be brought up to speed on racial bias which resulted in a new bathroom policy; anyone can use a Starbucks restroom even if they don’t buy anything and I am quite sure that we have heard the last of any racial bias issues coming from Starbucks. Yeah! I am that naive and right after that Roseanne Bar tweets, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj” It is quite obvious that we have grown to embrace diversity! And if you believe this, then once again, I have some nice beachfront property located smack dab in the middle of a desert! It’s beautiful! And cheap!

 

 

 

While We Are Being Distracted By British Inbred ‘Royal’ Pomp And Foolishness, Millions Of Americans Don’t Earn Enough To Pay For Basic Expenses!

Originally posted on © blogfactory: More than 50 million households in the United States don’t earn enough to pay for basic expenses, including housing, food, health care, transportation and a mobile phone, according to a new study. Combined, these 50.8 million households make up 43 percent of America’s 119 million households, according to the data released…

via Over 50 million US families can’t afford basics like rent and food — The Most Revolutionary Act

____________________________________________________________________________________

This article brings home the fact that there are over 50 million households in the United States that are having a time making ends meet enough to keep a roof over their family’s head while the mainstream media ‘feeds’ us bullshit about an already divorced half breed and her dysfunctional trailer trash family marrying into inbred ‘royals’ in England.

When will we get a clue that there is real suffering here in the States instead of pursuing entertainment that is meant as a distraction from what is really going down? With the Trump Administration proposing cuts to social programs left and right, the impact will be felt by America’s children. His entitled brat won’t ever have to worry about heading to his elite private school on an empty stomach, but millions of America’s children do just that!

I understand that Americans are ever ones for distractions, but there must come a time when we take off our rose-colored glasses and take a really good look around at what is happening and realize that all of us are headed in the direction of those who are already there; in deep, unrelenting poverty. How many of us can put together $500 for an emergency? A thousand? Why not? Because millions of Americans are working low wage jobs and with rents skyrocketing, how the hell can anyone save a dime? Millions more will soon be joining the ranks of those who have bottomed out.

And quite frankly, 50 million is not even close to what the true numbers are because the homeless were not included in this estimation, nor were squatters who live in abandoned, derelict buildings, nor were the people who live out of their cars or who live in RVs. Count them and the numbers are even more astounding!

But meanwhile, we’re somewhere looking teary-eyed at Meghan Markle’s stupid meaningless marriage ceremony since she’d already taken vows to love, honor and yada, yada, yada til death do her part with her first husband. If we are not distracted by fake African kingdoms, dumb ass amusement parks like Disney World, we are distracted by what inbred, redundant ‘monarchs’ are doing across the pond. Find some way to get tunnel vision so that you can focus on what will soon be impacting you!

 

“This Ain’t Wakanda!”

This is right on time! I had to share!

https://shahallah.wordpress.com/2018/02/21/black-people-fell-for-the-okie-doke-again-smh-pt-33/

So, to ALL the Black folks who spent your money on African garb and headdresses, paid a mint for popcorn and sodas and nacho cheese chips and Hershey bars and Nestle bars, and who left the movie theater after viewing “Black Panther” screaming, “Wakanda Forever!,”when you got back to the ‘hood’, that’s not yet gentrified, and you stepped on used syringe needles of Black heroin addicts and gazed upon the used condoms of johns that frequent drug-addicted prostitutes and when you got shot in the ass after having been caught in the crossfires of gang shootouts over drug turf, did “Black Panther” come down off that movie screen upon hearing you scream, “Wakanda Forever?”

There is no goddamn Wakanda! There never has been a Wakanda and there never will be a Wakanda. The only thing that’s going down over in Africa is the same shit that’s going down in America; the entire continent of Africa is owned by white men, the same as our asses in AmeriKKKa are owned by white men. And for Black folks to sit somewhere on your stupid asses getting all hyped up about some fiction shit when horrifying REAL shit is going down every day in Black ghettos and in prisons where almost 3 million Black men and women are slaving away for corporations, is just beyond ridiculous! I can only shake my head over the continuation of your cluelessness, ignorance and willingness to be made a fool of, daily!

There is no fake ass Disney Black Panther coming to save you from mass incarceration, police brutality, police murder of Blacks, gentrification, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass poverty, mass homelessness, income inequality, home foreclosures, sky-rocketing rents, poisoned water, water-shutoffs and the goddamn list is endless. But there you sit, proudly shouting and screaming with your fake ass African costumes on about some made up African kingdom while your son sits beside you, looking up at your awestruck gaze and at the foolishness on the screen and wondering why he does not live in “Wakanda!” You’re not even a “Black Panther” to your own children because when they head home, they get the video games out and to hell with homework for if not, then why is the school drop out rate for Black children so high? Is screaming for “Wakanda” going to help out with this?

With a goddamn flaming, racist, bigoted president that’s called all African countries AND Haiti, “Shitholes!” where the hell do you think you stand in this particular shithole? But “Wakanda!” to the rescue, right? Disney’s “Black Panther!” to the rescue, right? Some of you Black folks are dumber than a goddamn horse and that’s putting it mildly. Skinhead groups are gaining members daily. This president backs them up while you are sitting in a theater gazing avidly at a fictional kingdom in Africa when even if you was to drag your ass back to Africa, those Africans wouldn’t spit on you to put a fire out on your ass. In all these centuries past, when has an African country made a statement condemning the fact that Africans allowed other Africans to be stolen from that region? When has there ever been a call from any ‘kingdom’ in Africa for all of descendants of African slaves to come back to the glories of the motherland to be welcomed into the fold? Not ever! There are no African kingdoms. There are only corrupt African leaders in every region in Africa who are still selling out their own people just like in days of old. That is why our Black asses are sitting here looking at a goddamn stupid ass movie that in no way even pretends to depict just what the hell really is going on in Africa.

Black people always have to be entertained. You will spend your money on anything that will entertain you or to make you up to look as much like your oppressors as you can. Fake ass European hair weaves, fake ass braids, fake ass wigs, fake ass nails, fake ass makeup. That is all Black people are about, fake ass shit and fantasy while the rest of the world is fully cognizant of their plight while we want to be entertained. We want to believe that we are doing something by donning a dashiki with an African headdress and running inside a theater to look at more fake ass shit! We will even take up some holiday, talking about we’re celebrating Kwanzaa. What the fuck does Kwanzaa have to do with you? You’re fucking not African! Ever with the pretense that your history began in Africa. Your history begins with your own family here in AmeriKKKa. You can’t even manage to love the members of your own immediate family but yet, you want to get DNA tests done to see which fucking tribe you belong to in a land that lays no claim to your ass. How stupid is that? And what are you going to do if you find out that someone in your ancestral tree came from the Congo? Go over there and get raped, brutalized and terrorized like those women and  children who live in the Congo?

“In eastern Congo, rape and sexual violence are routinely employed as weapons to subjugate villages and terrorize entire communities. From old women to young children, the soldiers do not discriminate; the stories of their brutality and torture are so horrific that they rarely reach western ears. Inside the country, however, the locals have accepted mass rape as the status quo; even women who have been attacked will tell you: “This is just Congolese life.”

Yeah! That’s “Wakanda,” ain’t it? Did you read that? Even OLD WOMEN are not safe from being raped, brutalized and tortured. But your African head wrap and dashiki enables you to share their pain, doesn’t it? But they’re not supposed to be treated like that since they are living in “Wakanda!” being protected by their king, the “Black Panther” according to your dumb, stupid ass and Walt Disney Pictures!

“Decades of civil war before South Sudan became a nation and continuing to the present have left it one of the poorest countries in the world. Wracked by conflict, the young nation hasn’t been able to provide its people the basics of adequate healthcare, education, and income opportunities. Children are paying the price with their lives.

More than 5.7 million South Sudanese don’t have enough food to sustain themselves, and food insecurity continues to rise, likely reaching 6 million mid-2018. Nearly 4 million people are displaced because of conflict and hunger, including 2 million who have fled to neighboring countries since December 2013. Uganda hosts more than 1 million refugees from South Sudan; 60 percent of the displaced are children.”

This child in South Sudan wants to know “Where is Black Panther?” And where is “Wakanda?”

And I suppose, that’s also, “Wakanda?” It is quite apparent that I could continue in this vein, but the point should be well made. There is nothing for any Black person to feel ‘good’ about after having watched “Black Panther.” Let me ask you something. Did you Black men dress up like Tyler Perry did in all of his “Madea” movies when you went to watch them? Did you dress in drag to go see, say, “Madea Goes To Jail?” But for some strange ass reason, the whites release a movie about a non-existent kingdom in Africa where some supposed super hero is king and there you go, completely outfitted as though you, yourselves are royalty from a rich kingdom in Africa when you’re nothing more than weak, punk ass bitches who can’t even tell when you’re being used. How much of your money that you just gave over to see Black Panther will make it into the hands of Black people within their few remaining communities? NONE! Because Black people, even while living in their few remaining communities are still handing their money over to the Koreans, the Pakistanis, the Chinese, the whites; every one else but to another Black person.

I just recently moved from Baltimore, MD and I can tell you from first hand experience that there is no sign of “Wakanda Forever!” going on all up in Baltimore, MD. There is, however, plenty of heroin and crack addicts. There are plenty of Black people nodding on methadone. There are plenty who are mentally ill and homeless. There are plenty who have been shot by the cops and who actually survived, but who are wheel-chair bound and still full of bullets they’ll eventually die from. There are so many gangs, they’ve lost count. Baltimore recorded 343 homicides last year. Was this due to “Black Panther” coming in and ridding Baltimore of all the bad cops and bad, bad whitey? Hell no! These shootings were all about Black men shooting each other to death over drug turf or other Black people shooting each other just for the hell of it. One Black woman, who did not live in a kingdom, but lived in a housing project, was shot dead by a teenager simply because she called the police to stop this particular teenager from stealing her child’s bike, AGAIN! The Black teen shot this mother in her face, in front of her children, and calmly walked away. “Wakanda Forever!” Buy your dashikis here! If it were not so ridiculously sad, it would be funny to picture the lot of you sitting up in a theater looking as stupid as you could possibly look in your dashikis and African head wraps. I can only imagine since I will never be foolish enough to sit alongside you as you display your ignorance for all to see. Black folks, I don’t know why, but you continue to amaze me over how you are not even embarrassed at how stupid you really are, especially the so-called, adults!

This is Baltimore’s “Wakanda!” What a rich looking kingdom to be proud of, that is!

..and this is also Baltimore’s “Wakanda!”

Black people, just keep on heading in the direction that you are heading in and you will find something alright, but believe me, the last thing you will find is “Black Panther” coming to save you and take you to “Wakanda Forever!” Every single day, you have less and less to lose and yet, you never gain any knowledge from your losses. More’s the goddamn pity!

Draft Dodger Commander-In-Chief Demands U.S. Military Parade!

 

That is rich, literally! I mean, mostly it was the rich who got out of heading over to Vietnam to get killed or sprayed with Agent Orange while using ‘liquid fire'(napalm) on the innocent Vietnamese.

Now enters Donald Trump, a screaming and a wailing for a massive military parade to honor the U.S. military. So, now that he can no longer get drafted, this draft dodging coward wants to honor the very military that he refused to be drafted into since he claimed four college deferments and one ‘heel spur’ deferment. My! My! My! Yep, mostly it is the idle rich who  could get away with avoiding any kind of ‘unpleasantness’ that might get in the way of their living a lavish lifestyle at the expense of the poor.

How it even makes sense that this draft dodger actually became the Commander-In-Chief of the very military he fought, tooth and nail, to never have to serve in, should just be beyond the realm of understanding on any level. The claim is that Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, witnessed a French military parade and suddenly developed this nostalgic idea. It had to be nostalgia right? I mean, since he almost served, but thanks to four college deferments and a heel spur, he didn’t have to? Right?

The Draft-Dodger-In-Chief did not get hit with a ton of deep, unrelenting shame over the fact that his non-existent heel spur got him out of going to fight in a war for love of country. Oh, no, never that! France was hosting a military parade while Trump looked on and voila! The idea just suddenly popped into Tweet Brain Trump, better known on Twitter as Dim Tweet Trump who, despite the logistics and cost of hosting this type of parade,  is remaining insistent that this military parade should come to pass. The rest of the world should get a clue of how bad ass America’s military is. Newsflash! The rest of the world is very much aware of the U.S. military especially seeing as how there are over 700 military bases stationed all across this planet and Americans are most definitely aware of the U.S. military since we pay ‘mightily’ for that military through our tax dollars to the detriment of our roads and bridges, environment, food and water and safety net programs.

Here’s an idea! Since billionaire, Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, wants a military parade so bad, present him with an estimated bill for this military parade and tell him that he will be responsible for this extravaganza and see how fast his enthusiasm dries up. It will dry up almost as fast as his enthusiasm for love of country dried up upon expecting to receive his draft papers. College was just too good to be true at a time when it was most needed and then when that no longer served its purpose, enter ‘heel spur’. I am quite sure that many poor men who were drafted wished they had known just how easy it would be to get their names erased off the draft list if they had just ‘developed’ a heel spur and so could lie back and enjoy the good life of having some other poor schmuck fill in for them.

What a difference in the treatment Muhammad Ali received when he refused to be drafted. Muhammad Ali was stripped of his world heavyweight title for refusing to join the army in 1967, his boxing license was suspended during his peak years for boxing, he was arrested, convicted by ‘no jury of his peers’, but by an ‘all-white’ jury and jailed for refusing to get drafted based on religious reasons. Muhammad Ali stated that, “The draft is about white people sending Black people to fight yellow people to protect a country they stole from the red people,” and “The real enemy of my people is here (in America). I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for four hundred years.”

I have much respect for Muhammad Ali for standing up for his beliefs while Donald Trump’s only belief was that he was just too rich and white and important to have his worthless hide sent over to Vietnam to die and for what? Certainly not for love of country by ‘virtue’ of military service because if he ‘loved his country’, no heel spur or college education could have kept him from insisting that he be sent to fight in Vietnam. And yet, this draft dodger, with the most dangerous and deadly disease ever to exist, ‘heel spur’ disease, would go on to eventually become the Commander-In-Chief of the very military that he was scared too shitless to be drafted into. This Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, goes beyond hypocritical when espousing on how much reverence he has for the very military of which he insisted that a heel spur must keep him out of. How in the world can that draft dodger look himself in the mirror if he had one ounce of shame, guilt or embarrassment and yet, he exudes nothing but bravado when speaking of the U.S. military as if it it actually has personal meaning to him.

We should ALL have died  from the sheer shame of it, the shame of having a draft-dodger as Commander-In-Chief of the most murdering and depraved military on the face of this planet! And yet, we have no shame because not one word has been said about how much of an atrocity it is that this coward, who was so hellbent on never seeing a day of military service, actually feigned a piddling little medical diagnosis just to get out of doing so after having exhausted all college deferments, IS the Commander-In-Chief of that very same military.

Donald Trump’s ‘dedicated NON service’ to his country reads as follows:

Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.

He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.

But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

The [heel spur] diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.

That was then!

Today, well now, that’s another story!

[Draft Dodger-In-Chief], Donald Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Of course, Donald Trump is supportive of the military NOW! Yes indeed, all the rich white hypocrites, along with the biggest rich white hypocrite of all, the Draft Dodger-In-Chief, Donald J. Trump, can now press for the urgency of a military parade so that they can all express smug satisfaction over the fact that they, like Donald Trump, received deferments instead of draft notifications and so did not put their life on the line for a country built on the premise that “All men are created equal.” What a load of bullshit! Those who have don’t have to fight. Those who have not, have to fight! And you can be a draft dodger and still get to enjoy the status of Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. military, if you’re white, that is.

Ain’t life grand for the rich white man?!

Trump’s First SOTU

“Good evening my fellow Americans. First of all, I want to assure all Americans, true Americans, that is, that I will not include in this address to the nation, any FAKE NEWS! That is CNN’s job.”

“As we celebrate America, the greatest and most exceptional country on the planet, we understand that to make America great again means to get rid of the Statue of Liberty which I never thought belonged here in the first place. Why do we want poor people from shithole countries? We don’t want the tired and poor huddled masses here raping our young white virginal girls with their filthy Mexican hands. And that is why I propose to build that wall to keep those raping Mexicans from crossing over until I need some housekeepers at Mar-a-Lago.”

“I realize that I took a lot of hits for my ‘shithole countries’ remarks when referring to people coming from Haiti and African countries, but those people who live in those shitholes are thanking me for exposing to the world, what they already know. And of course, FAKE NEWS didn’t print that.”

“However, there is much ground to cover tonight and without further ado, I shall get the show on the road. First up, we will soon have my new immigration bill signed into law and we will ignore any injunctions because a mere judge cannot undo what the President of the United States has signed into law. I am sick and tired of being told that I must answer to a higher power when there can be no higher power than the President of this great country. My new immigration bill covers not only the basics for keeping unwanted immigrants from migrating here, but this bill will also remove those who are still dreaming of remaining here. The Dreamers have been dreaming for far too long and it is quite past time that we turned their dreams into plane rides back to where their parents came from. I am quite sure that Honduras, Guadalupe, Guatemala, Cinco de Mayo and Trinidad and Tobago would welcome their people back to Latin America. America is not the only country that grows vegetables and those people who are here illegally are needed to work the fields in their parents original country of birth.”

“Next, we have to fix our infrastructure here in America because America’s infrastructure has been neglected for far too long and that is why I have signed a new executive order giving FrackAway Corporation, the absolute rights to fracking in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Stalingrad and Kansas with the assurance that there will be no serious and sustained damage to the earth and nearby drinking water wells of local residents and these people will thank me later when the price of gas goes way, way down and remains low. We will no longer be dependent on foreign oil and I have also been assured by the FrackAway Corporation that they also specialize in windmills. I want one for Mar-a-Lago and they are going to install it. Windmills remind me of those cute little pinwheels I had when I was a child and now that I’m an adult, I need adult toys.”

“What I want to do now is to introduce to you, Sgt. Dead Man Walking, Sgt. Walking has been deployed nine times to Afghanistan and since he has been in that country so long, he has been declared an Afghan citizen and he has agreed to help with the negotiations with the Taliban on getting the opium out of Afghanistan much faster than we have been able to manage thus far. By cutting down on the paperwork, Sgt. Walking will expedite the process that normally takes 19 days into a 5 day time frame from the time the plant is stripped to the time it lands at our secret Air Force base in Area 59.”

“I do realize that FAKE NEWS has been accusing me of using Twitter too much but I have been assured by Twitter that I make far less use of their services than my predecessor George W. Bush. It is my understanding that Bush and his playmate Condasleezie Rice had secret user names and they used Twitter to make secret assignations which were of course, kept secret until I inquired into Twitter usage of past presidents. Unlike what FAKE NEWS would have you believe, I am hard at work trying to make sure that I use my time to actually get things done. I have also cut my golf games down to 26 a day, 6 days a week. It was difficult, but I want the American people to know that I will not rest until every American has what he/she needs in order to be a viable asset to this great company…I mean, country.”

“Someone just whispered into my earpiece that a rumor is going around since my wife showed up here by her lonesome. Well, let me stop the rumormongers in their tracks right now. Melania came in alone at my request. I have told her time and time again that when I am dallying with another lady friend, the lady friend is apt to get jealous if she sees us together too much and that out of respect for her, my lady friend, that is, I must insist that she attend to her First Lady duties on her own. We are both adults and she does not need to hold my hand every single day.”

“Now then, it has come to my attention that some of you are still shocked and appalled that I won the presidency; stripped right from underneath ole Hillary over there! What can I say, there are just not enough Black Supremacists to counter the White Supremacists and the Black Nationalists are just now gaining their membership while the White Nationalists have been at it since 1602. And now with ANTIFA strutting around, we’ve got ourselves a big ole case of group segregation going on. What we need is yet another uncivil war to get this mess all straightened out because a house united must be divided and I aim to do just that.”

“And finally, I know that some of you are wondering why I have not fired the entire FBI and that is because I have secretly rendered that agency, impotent. The FBI no longer has the clout it once had. These so-called ‘investigations’ into my family’s affairs will cease because the Trump name and brand is spotless. We have no skeletons in our closets and despite every attempt by the Democrats, who by the way, are still suffering from their massive defeat blaming me for their losses, we are still managing to get things done because even the republicans who did not want to work with me in the beginning have come over to my side and my way of thinking. And by all means, light Twitter up tomorrow to show your support for the new tax overhaul bill, for the immigration bill and for the fact that you love number 45!”

“To the American people, the TRUE American people, I wish you a good night and to the dREAMERS, your planes are ready for takeoff!”

America, The Shithole!

There is no greater shithole on the face of this planet than America!

We’ve got a shit for brains racist president that makes no bones about the fact that he is racist as hell while the White House is frantically running around trying to assure everyone that Trump never referred to Haiti and African countries as, ‘shitholes’.

President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on Thursday’s meeting told NBC News.

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should have more people coming in from places like Norway.

Well, why the hell didn’t this shithole originally drag people over to this shithole from Norway to slave away on plantations? Why the fuck are Norwegians just now becoming so popular with this flaming racist president who is just as damn racist as the first presidents of this stinking ass shithole?

People from African countries would not already be here if not for the fact that this shithole had people in it who looked just like Norwegians but who were so damn lazy, they didn’t even want to pick their own cotton, tobacco, vegetables or do their own goddamn cooking and cleaning. This shithole could have long since been filled with Norwegians and only Norwegians if it weren’t so fucking racist since only Africans were considered inferior enough to do backbreaking and menial tasks as slaves.

But now, this fucking shithole wants Norwegians? And people from African countries should be glad to remain in their huts in Africa? You know what? My Black ass would have been mightily glad to have been able to remain with my ancestors in their goddamn huts, but you white motherfuckers weren’t about to have that. Oh hell no! You needed slaves and it is quite apparent that your first consideration for that dubious distinction was not the Norwegians, it was those who were quite happy to remain in their motherfucking huts, that is until today, since Donald Trump tells us so.

Here in this shithole to end and all shitholes is a goddamn pile of shit with a flaming racist tongue protruding and spitting out shit, left and right about what other countries are shitholes? Talk about shitty balls. That motherfucker’s got the balls of bulls to even vomit that putrid shit up!

But let me expound further on what makes this shithole, a shithole!

This WHITE MALE MASS MURDERER who killed dozens and wounded hundreds is first up!

Don’t forget about what happened in Las Vegas! What a shithole!

Sandra Bland, murdered in a Texas jail and the shits that run this shithole called it, “SUICIDE!” Fuck that!

Where was the justice for Sandra Bland in this racist shithole?

‘How A Police Officer Shot A Sleeping 7-Year-Old To Death’
Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones was sleeping in her home on the east side of Detroit on the night of May 16, 2010, when officers barged into the house. Officer Joseph Weekley fired his gun and shot to death a sleeping child, seven year-old Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones.
So, what did this child do to deserve getting shot dead? She wasn’t selling drugs. She didn’t have a rap sheet. She was asleep and murdered and what happened to her killer? Nothing! Because he is white and this innocent seven year old child was Black. It wasn’t her fault that she was living in America, The Mother of ALL Shitholes! Where is the justice for her?

Muhammad-Ali was almost jailed and was stripped of his right to get into a boxing ring in the prime of his life because he recognized this worthless racist shithole for what it is, a shithole!

Philando Castile, murdered in front of his girlfriend and her daughter for cooperating with ‘law enforcement’ trying to produce his identification and no one was held responsible for murdering that man in this racist shithole!

Alton Sterling, another Black man murdered for no reason because just being Black is no reason to be lying in a morgue in this racist shithole, but that’s what he got!

These nine Black people were holding prayer service in their church in this shithole when a racist gunned them down. But I guess it was their fault since they weren’t of Norwegian descent.

Tamir Rice, aged 12, dead! Murdered by a racist cop because he was playing with a toy gun in a park in this racist shithole!

Anna Brown, dead, aged 29 because she went to a hospital because she was sick. The hospital called the police and she died on a jail cell floor from blood clots in her legs that traveled to her lungs. She, apparently, was not Norwegian and so therefore, was not deserving of care in this flaming shithole!

Barbara Dawson, dead, same reason as Anna Brown in the above picture is dead. She fell ill, went to a hospital and was promptly arrested. She died after having been handcuffed, dragged out of the hospital and collapsed. Too bad she wasn’t Norwegian in this shithole!

Remember Emmett Till? His mother leans, inconsolable, over the coffin of her 14-year old son who was brutalized and lynched by feral racists in this shithole for doing not a damn thing. But then, he wasn’t Norwegian, so I guess that explains this, doesn’t it???!!!

Michael Brown and Eric Garner, both dead. And Eric Garner’s death was filmed and he was killed by a cop using an illegal chokehold and who was held accountable for his death in this racist shithole? And so many lies were told about Michael Brown, it isn’t even funny, but I do know that he was shot dead and his body was allowed lie there in the hot sun, uncovered, for hours as though he was a dog, shot dead. For the love of !!!! Again, too bad he was not of Norwegian descent because maybe, he’d still be alive.

Have you seen enough proof of what a shithole America is, a racist shithole, at that? Or did you really think that a shithole has to do more so with how a place looks than what it really is. Because all of the above happenings makes America, the shithole to end all shitholes. And how dare that pompous, racist, megalomaniac sit on his shitty ass and declare that Haiti and all African countries as being “shitholes” when America has always and will always reign as the “Supreme Shithole To End All Shitholes!”

But I’ll leave you with something else that is reminiscent of a shithole!

 

Look at the maps and take note of how close to ground zero you are in this toxic shithole of glyphosates.

 

And yet, that racist fuck, Trump thinks that I wanted my ancestors to be dragged from what he calls, “shitholes?” Is that fuck for real? Seriously? I am not some ‘African’ trying to immigrate here. And why they would want to is a complete and utter mystery to me! Maybe the Norwegians, back in the day, would have come, willingly, but my people were dragged to this SHITHOLE!

 

Trump’s Tweets About The Indictments!

 

Now, we have all heard about the recent indictments of close personal advisers of Donald Trump.

Asked what Trump’s thoughts were regarding his former campaign advisor, George Papadopolous pleading guilty to lying to the FBI, Trump tweeted:

I don’t even know him. He’s a Roman. I don’t know any Romans. This is a setup!

A White House spokesperson, who refused to go on record stated that Trump is not at all afraid of further indictments leveled at other people he doesn’t even know because no one in the media can be trusted and every report so far, has been FAKE NEWS. There have been no indictments and there will be no indictments. This is just a ‘witch hunt’ because the Democrats are still mad that Trump won the popular vote as well as the Electoral College vote. No one in his administration colluded with the Russians on anything. Donald Trump stated that he did not even know who Vladimir Putin was until he spoke with Sarah Palin at the governor’s mansion in Alaska during a vacation there and she alluded to the fact that Vladimir Putin was a friend of hers who frequently called out to her from his palace in St. Petersburg, British Columbia.

When Trump was advised that yet another one of his former campaign advisers had been indicted and taken into custody by the FBI, Trump again took to Twitter with a few choice words.

If there was any real proof of collusion with Russia, I would have been indicted. Stop the FAKE NEWS!

When told that special counsel for the Justice Department, Robert Mueller has also leveled charges at Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, who were also former Trump aides, charged with “conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and lying among other charges,” Trump was aghast! Trump was overheard exclaiming, “Who are these people?” “I am surrounded by imposters claiming to be my advisers when I have never heard of these people before. This is ALL Hillary Clinton’s fault!” “If anyone thinks to bring charges against me, I will have my day in court on Twitter!”

And so, once more taking to Twitter, Donald Trump had this to say:

Donald Trump, in a statement released to the press, had this to say, “Since these nice men are more than likely ‘white nationalists’, this is why they are being singled out to be made scapegoats of. This is what happens when a person stands up for what they truly believe in. I am calling for all ‘white nationalists’ to protest the Justice Department and FBI headquarters to demand the release of these patriotic, gun-toting white men who have gotten fed up with understanding that they will soon be a minority in America. And if they did indeed conspire against the United States, it is only because the United States has been overtaken by Mexicans and half-breeds. It is time to take our country back and they are breaking no laws. How could they? They are simply ‘white’ men making America ‘white’ again!”

Stay tuned for more updates and tweets as this is a breaking story!

Trump To Dead Soldiers Widow, “He Knew What He Was Signing Up For When He Enlisted.”

 

Donald Trump speaks the truth AGAIN and AGAIN the fallout is unbelievable!

President Trump told the widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger that he “knew what he was getting into,” said U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Miami), who said she was in the car where the phone call was received.

Army Sgt. La David Johnson was purportedly in Niger advising local troops on how to counter Boko Haram and al Qaeda when he and three other American soldiers were leaving a meeting whereupon they were shot dead. So much for their role as ‘advisers’. Now, we are not focusing on exactly why the government of Niger is in need of America’s military to advise them on how to handle their own business, issues or problems that’s got nothing whatsoever to do with America. We are to focus on what Donald Trump is alleged to have said to a widow about her dead husband.

Black-assed, dead Army Sgt. La David Johnson had no business in Niger in the first place. What happens in Niger is Niger’s business and yet, Sgt. Johnson was in Niger minding Niger’s business and in the process, got himself shot dead. Is America at war with Niger? Has anyone in Niger sent a missile to America? Has a ‘terrorist’ from Niger escaped Niger’s officials, boarded a plane, landed in America and promptly shot up hundreds of people as was the case with the ‘white’ terrorist that did exactly that in Las Vegas a few weeks ago? Uh…that would be a resounding “NO!”

So, yes indeed, Sgt. Johnson got exactly what he signed on the dotted line for. He signed on the dotted line to KILL OR BE KILLED and so no one should be surprised at all that Sgt. Johnson was killed. He had a gun, did he not? He was taught how to use that gun, was he not? And so whose fault is it that the other guy got the upper hand on Sgt. Johnson? It was Sgt. Johnson’s fault. No one told him to have eyes in the back of his head? No one told him that everyone he meets is presumably an enemy? So, keep your head low and your gun ready? Too bad, so sad, shit happens, right? Right!

Now, let’s all get bent-out-of-shape because Donald Trump told Sgt. Johnson’s widow that he “knew what he was getting into,” because Sgt. Johnson’s widow did not know did she? Of course she did! Did she think that Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf for reparations? No! Did she think Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf because he was providing modeling services for the U.S. military? No! Get real! Sgt. Johnson and his family were housed, fed and received medical coverage because Sgt. Johnson signed his body over to the elites killing squads known as the U.S. military. He signed any rights he had to live over to the elites when he signed the dotted line to “kill or be killed.” The elites don’t care about Sgt. Johnson, nor do they care about his widow and his children who are left behind to mourn their father who would rather be over in Niger minding Niger’s business over minding his own. No one forced Sgt. Johnson to sign on the dotted line. No one held a ‘gun’ to his head and made him fly over to Niger to ‘advise’ Niger’s officials as to how to fight who the hell knows who!

Did Sgt. Johnson know what he was signing up for when he enlisted? Damn right, he did! And for that he got just what every dead soldier receives; he got a flag-draped coffin. Now, whether or not his family received letter or a phone call from his commander-in-chief is anyone’s guess, but he got just what he signed on the dotted line for. So, if you don’t expect to get shot dead when you sign on the dotted line to “kill or be killed,” then don’t sign on the dotted line. I do understand that Americans are some stupid shits, but even this should be crystal clear to you. And if it looks to you as though those who send you to foreign lands to “kill or be killed,” don’t give a damn about you, it is because they don’t give a damn about you! Donald Trump was a draft dodger because he was not about to risk his neck for not a goddamn thing because why should his ass suit up and fight the elites wars? He thumbed his nose at “risking his life for love of country, freedom, liberty and justice;” because he knew what you can’t seem to understand in that these are mere useless words that have no meaning for the likes of Donald Trump and the elites who send other peoples children to die for no cause at all. This country has never stood for freedom, liberty and justice because this country has never understood what those words mean and so just how can you fight for something that has no bearing on a country you were born in? You cannot. You are not fighting to keep America safe. You are fighting for American hegemony; you are fighting for elites to own and control the world just as they own and control you! But because they feed you patriotic bullshit, you lap that shit up, swallow it down and beg for more and then get pissed off because someone stated the obvious to you; that you “knew what you were signing up for when you enlisted.”

You fight for something that never was. You are killed for nothing! There is no honor in dying for hypocrisy and that is exactly what you are dying for; for America to continue to reign supreme when it comes to hypocrisy. How can a nation that is filled with hatred, white supremacy, illegitimacy, stolen lands, stolen people, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow, slavery, racism and mass murder ever be synonymous with freedom, justice and liberty? It cannot, not when a gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of freedom, justice and liberty that can be found in America. You die because you are too stupid to see beyond the fake ass displays of patriotism; a flag that is literally dripping with the blood of Indians and slaves. You die because you are too blind to see past the first stanza of the national anthem; an anthem that pays homage to slavery, an anthem that you are supposed to sing proudly as you are led off to fight people you have never met and who bear you no ill will but yet, you expect them to not want to kill those who are in their lands minding their business. You die because you are too willing to be a tool for those who wouldn’t spit on you if you were on fire to help put it out but for whom you willingly and knowingly and with malice forethought sign up to do their dirty work and then when you are killed, they tell your family members, “He knew what he was signing up for when he enlisted.” Oh yes, he knew! And Sgt. Johnson signed up any way.

“So Mrs. Johnson, when your baby is born, tell your baby that his father died for hypocrisy. His father died for nothing. His father died to protect slavery, stolen lands, stolen people, hypocrisy, rape, torture, enslavement, whips, shackles, chains, prejudice, bigotry, racism, white supremacy, capitalism, neo-liberalism, American hegemony. Yeah! You tell him/her that!”

 

And for Black folks to take up arms in defense of this shithole called America is a disgrace to your slave ancestors who fought against the Americans; who fought with English soldiers for their freedom. Francis Scott Key who purportedly wrote the national anthem; the star-spangled banner, had his ass handed to him by a battalion of Colonial Marines; Black men who were fighting on the side of the English. Key was so pissed off that he got his comeuppance at the hands of Black men that he wrote, in favor of slavery, in one of the stanzas of the star-spangled banner, the stanza that you never heard sung by Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Ray Charles, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Luther Vandross, Beyoncé and others. Oh, no! You never heard this stanza being sung, but you had damn well better believe that those who sang the first stanza knew about this one!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

At Black people, especially those who should know better, I can only shake my head over their willful acceptance of third class citizenship in a country that continues to view them as slaves and will forever do so. You perform for Massa today just as your ancestors did hundreds of years ago, just as Sgt. Johnson did until he got what he signed up for. “No refuge could save the hireling and the slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.” No, indeed it could not! Just you ask Sgt. Johnson and his widow!
