Man Is The Worst Landlord!

earth-1

No more thoughts run through my head
of killing fields and of the dead.
I have become immune to the suffering
of all the addicts who aren’t recovering.
I immerse myself in fun and games
as I ignore the world as it goes up in flames.
For why should I put forth an effort
when I’d rather traverse a hot and arid desert
than think of man as he withers and dies
from all his atrocities, wars and lies?
No plague could be too severe;
no earthquake would I fear.
For man is the worst landlord.
And upon his death, this world could be restored.

We all know that ‘man’ is the worst landlord for this planet. For what has man done but his damn best to destroy it?Would that man could destroy himself without destroying what was once a paradise that could have sustained us all. Now, we have greed, hatred, intolerance, endless, senseless wars and fake ass assertions that we are ‘good’ and seek only peace and prosperity for all when nothing could be further from the truth. We shoot each other every single day and if we are not shooting and killing each other in our own neighborhoods, we are suiting up to shoot and kill people in their neighborhoods across the sea and absconding with everything that’s not nailed down. We can’t even contain our arrogance and thirst for blood on a local level; we must spread our evil, far and wide.

I just read that there is an earthquake advisory for Southern California and that the East Coast is under a massive storm watch thanks to Hurricane Matthew and as far as I am concerned, the two should just meet up and put paid to this shithole; once and for all. Wiping AmeriKKKa off the map would go a long way towards restoring this planet to some semblance of what it was before ‘mankind’ decided that bombs and missiles and drones and bullets and wars led to peace, prosperity and freedom. And don’t even bother throwing a fit about all the people that would die if such a calamity struck this shithole because since when have we gave a damn about all the havoc that we have wreaked not only here in AmeriKKKa, but worldwide? Fuck this shithole!

Africans Are To Blame For Why Slaves Were Brought To AmeriKKKa! Fuck THAT Shit!

stolen from Africa

 

Now, those who have followed this here blog of mine for some time, know that I  suffer fools gladly. I will and can shut your shit down if you bring it. And it was indeed, brung. Never mind, my use of the non-word ‘brung’. If others can make up words as they go along, then so can I which is partly my point. If I can make shit up, then so can others and they do indeed, make shit up. Regardless of what you think about the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and who was guilty of what…….what does and does not make sense must take precedence over any supposed ‘eye-witness’ accounts and some would have us believe that ‘eye-witnesses’ are still recounting their stories to this very day. Well, be that as it may, if it makes no sense to me, it ain’t getting believed.

Historians can spin the shit out of history just as they always do. They can have people believing that the victims are responsible for being victims and unfortunately, they can even make the seemingly intelligent believe their lies and other disingenuous shit. I have never been one to believe whatever someone else says. I don’t care how many times they say it, if it makes no sense to me, it never will. However, this one topic is extremely important to me and I will not condone the spread of baseless lies. I will not have history placing the blame where it does not belong.

There have been many tales about how the African tribal leaders sold other tribes to the Caucasian slavers that were there for the express purpose of looking for free labor to build up a country that had been stolen by them. Why are we then suppose to believe that these freeloading bastards would think twice about sailing to distant lands in the search for free labor since they had practically killed off the original inhabitants of this stolen land? It would be a serious stretch of the imagination to believe that these animals would by chance and happenstance, come upon another inhabited land and have no intention of stealing its inhabitants and force them into slavery to build a nation on stolen land. Once a thief, always a thief and the thieving continues. But we have supposed ‘Black’ people who are going along with this ridiculous shit!

And so, without further ado, I am posting the back-n-forth because just maybe, some people will see that even to this very day, the lies just keep coming and the tall tales get taller to the point where people make no sense at all and don’t even know it. I believe it is my duty and my responsibility to ‘clear shit up’! This crazy mess is a result of my previous post.

N.S. says:

All of Africa is not that poor. A certain Asian region- that has more people than the whole African continent- is the region with the most hungry people. Africa also has most of the world’s top 10 fastest growing economies for the past 10 years and many in the top 20.

I agree, if anyone has responsibility for what happens in Africa, it is the inhabitants. According to all indications, the Africans- who are a completely different people than we are, as even they repeatedly tell us and plenty of evidence supports this- have a much, much better ability to control their destiny than we do. The majority of the world’s resources, a relatively young population, representation internationally, etc. Outside countries, no matter how powerful, are not the real reason the continent is not in good shape.

The present condition of Africa is very frustrating. However, we “blacks” are really not in control of our own ultimate fates at present. We have plenty of celebrities as well as not famous blacks who give to them and sincerely try to help in other ways even though the Africans have always shown that we are not part of them and that they do not want us. We have done much more for them than anything we had to do.

Shelby Courtland responds:

“All of Africa is not that poor”

Hence, that is the reason why in my poem, I stated “When Africa is rich and this we all know!” I do realize that all of Africa is not poor, how could it be with the tremendous amount of natural resources that is in Africa?

” According to all indications,the Africans- who are a completely different people than we are, as even they repeatedly tell us and plenty of evidence supports this-”

Well, I am certainly not suggesting that we all can just sit down and join hands and sing “Kumbaya.” I wrote a poem on my feelings and thoughts of Africa and Africans can dislike us until the moon falls from the sky, but that is irrelevant. We are descendants of people who were dragged from Africa and there is no getting around that. Maybe, this is partly why ‘Black’ folks can’t get it together now is because we continue to look at one another and see differences as opposed to likenesses. We are all hated by every other group on this planet and we better recognize that. I don’t think that I would be shot on the spot if I chanced to visit Africa, just because I’m not a ‘true’ African. Of course we have differences because of where we were born and many of us have no idea of our genealogy.

Some descendants of slaves claim they can trace theirs, but seeing as how so many of our ancestors were sold up and down the river to different plantations, this could present a problem. I am not attempting to hone in on Africa as though she would welcome me with open arms as though I am a returning ‘native daughter’, I know that just as there are starving children here in America, there too, are starving children in Africa and yet, I feel that they are in a better position than we are to do something about that situation. I am not claiming to have all the answers, nor can I solve an entire continent’s issues with just a poem, but I do feel as though my having written a poem about my thoughts of Africa should not be torn apart, piece by piece and dissected. Take it for what it is; a heartfelt piece of poetry; nothing more, nothing less! And I did include in my poem, the fact that I thought that the Africans could and should be doing more for themselves than they are actually doing. I get sick and tired of Black folks in America who always go on and on about the kings and queens of Africa and how they were just THE shits and we should be proud of our African heritage when, if as you say, ‘they don’t really care about us’, then someone need tell them that because according to you, they’re delusional. If they(Africans) were so knowledgeable and such builders and militants, they should be in a better position than they are!

Thank you for your comment.

N.S. says:

No, I knew you were not trying to answer the question in your poem. I was mostly agreeing with you in my answer, including the fact that it was not all poor and that they were in a much better position to save themselves, and I did not intend to dissect your poem.

I agree that many, many groups hate us- but it us blacks who lost our identity, not the Africans. There is a strange intensity for us that was confusing. For the accepted theory of how we got here we all know that very large number of Africans kidnapped us and sold us to other peoples who took us all over the world. Not all tribes were involved but far too many were. These Africans have left us there for centuries and in some cases over a 1,000 years. They have never claimed any of us as their own and not one country of the dozens of countries or tribe wants us as a group. There is far more evidence on why they are different people and everyone over there is from a different ethnic group-not including those few of us who went to live in Africa-, but this comment would become too long. Still, many of us have gone above and beyond in protecting, giving, and advocating for the people on the continent, including you.

The whole situation with Africa is complicated.

Shelby Courtland responds:

N.S., just what is ‘our’ identity? I would love to know. Since I cannot ‘identify’ with the Africans and according to many, we cannot even ‘identify’ with each other here in AmeriKKKa, just who can we ‘identify’ with? Our aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews, sons and daughters? Because from where I sit, many ‘Black’ families are having problems ‘identifying with their immediate ‘family’, much less do we seem to have any staying power when it comes to looking out for each other. This is ALL due to how we came to be in America. I damn sure cannot ‘identify’ with the whites even though, many ‘Blacks’ seem to be hell bent on trying, what with lightening their skin, taming their tresses via processing, weaves and anything else they can find to slap up there and tame the naps. We have no ‘identity’ and that is why we attempt to emulate others so much.

I do understand that many people think that other groups are appropriating our culture and running with it, but when all is said and done, I don’t think that we are merely singers and dancers who have had our music and our moves stolen. We are a confused people and it is not without some basis. Regardless of whose fault it is as to why we are here, the Africans who YOU say sold other Africans into slavery or the slavers that bought them. And I have a problem with that because as many different dialects as there are in Africa, I have no idea how European slavers could understand the language enough to bargain with African chiefs for stolen tribes. It seems that you would have us believe that over tea and crumpets, the Africans bargained with the Europeans and the Spanish and others over who was to go and who was to stay. Why were the Europeans in Africa in the first place? Gun running? Empire building? Hiding out? I’m not trying to be facetious, but some things just don’t add up and though I know I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, nor have I an extensive background on African studies, when something just doesn’t make sense to me, it just doesn’t. But be that as it may, this is all irrelevant seeing as how, we are here, they are there and neither seem to be coming out ahead, though we fare worse than the Africans, that is quite obvious. I’ll stop here because on this one, we shall just have to agree to disagree.

N.S. says:

I likewise agree to disagree likewise on our identity. Plenty of signs of our identity and culture are already there, but they have been hidden or need interpretation, and they are by no means related to just music and dancing. We will all know at the right time(and no, you won’t be in trouble, even though you don’t believe what I say about our identity at this moment, and anyone who says otherwise is lying), but for now, Black American or Black works for the great(one that is special like no other) and peculiar group of blacks in this country until we all know our name.

However, the non-European evidence for them selling us comes from their personal testimonies, some of which people I know have heard as well as what I heard myself(I heard one guy say in an informal, very casual setting that he didn’t feel guilty his ancestors had sold ours over here), other remarks which are on the Internet including YouTube, as well as formal acknowledgements by the leaders of Benin and Senegal and high ranking people from other countries in the Bight of Benin and West Africa of their role in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. There is plenty of evidence of African help for the Arab Slave Trade on the other side of Africa. We were sold by enemy tribes. It would also be impossible for those whites to go into Africa, seize tens of millions of us in the vast territory(even just the coastal regions) of the then unfamiliar West Coast of Africa with their primitive weapons(including their guns, which were only a little better than useless during the trade), and transport us to the Americas with no help. Unless you believe in the black indigenous theory, it is hard to see where there can be any doubt that Africans played an important part in our coming over here.

Shelby Courtland responds:

“We will all know at the right time(and no, you won’t be in trouble, even though you don’t believe what I say about our identity at this moment, and anyone who says otherwise is lying), but for now, Black American or Black works for the great(one that is special like no other) and peculiar group of blacks in this country until we all know our name.”

Oh, for goodness sake! There YOU go, with some special Gawd on high just for us Black folks in AmeriKKKa. Are you serious? I have always admired you, right up to this point! “One that is special?” Well, we could sure use some ‘special’ treatment from ‘one who is special’ right about oh…say….400 years ago???!!!! If ‘one’ is so goddamn special, then where the hell is this ‘one so special’? Waiting on an epiphany? A bolt of lightning? A Big Mac attack? What?

And as for me being in any trouble? Posh, tish and piss on that! I don’t believe in any higher being, be it ‘Black special’ or ‘white special’. And I am quite shocked that YOU of all people is sitting somewhere waiting on the ‘rapture’ of some sorts that is especially for YOU…OH! OH! And other ‘Blacks’ in AmeriKKKa, of course…and even little ole me who must be teetering on the brink of being “in trouble” with this ‘one that is special’.

Alright, I’ll bite! “Oh, ‘one that is special’ please hear my plea! Where might ye be? We could sure use some intervention right about now to get the pink Caucasoid all up off our ass. Don’t you see them filling our asses with bullets? You don’t see our children getting sent from the classroom straight into a For Profit Prison? What the hell are you waiting on? Why can you not just open the doors of all the prisons in AmeriKKKa and free our innocent Black brothers and sisters? Not powerful enough to do that, eh? I didn’t think so! Okay! Okay! Maybe, I am asking for too much. So, I’ll tone it down a bit. How about you at least get the racist ass KKKops off our backs? Damn! Still too much for you? I fucking thought so!”

I tried N.S.! I really did, to believe in your ‘one so special’ but it just ain’t happening.

“However, the non-European evidence for them selling us comes from their personal testimonies, some of which people I know have heard as well as what I heard myself(I heard one guy say in an informal, very casual setting that he didn’t feel guilty his ancestors had sold ours over here”

You mean to say that there are people who are still around who are centuries old and who are sitting somewhere in a hut telling about their experiences of actually witnessing the African tribal leaders sell members of other tribes to the pink-assed motherfuckers that sailed to the African continent for the sole purpose of finding ‘slave’ labor to build up a shithole that had been stolen and when it was determined that the few remaining original inhabitants refused to build this shithole to the specifications of their captors, into boats these inhuman predatory beasts, jumped, whereupon, they landed in Africa and had, handed to them, some Black captives who then thanked the African tribal leaders, IN THEIR DIALECT, for these hardy souls and then set sail back to AmeriKKKa? Someone is actually sitting somewhere telling this very same story from their own eyewitness account? For real? Really? I BELIEVE!!!! Oh, yes I DON’T!

“We were sold by enemy tribes. It would also be impossible for those whites to go into Africa, seize tens of millions of us in the vast territory(even just the coastal regions) of the then unfamiliar West Coast of Africa with their primitive weapons(including their guns, which were only a little better than useless during the trade), and transport us to the Americas with no help.”

I’m going to have to ‘shoot’ this down!

“primitive weapons(including their guns”

Primitive weapons? A gun? No N.S.! A primitive weapon is a SPEAR! It is not a gun and the Caucasoid cocksuckers didn’t have primitive spears, they had the technology to fill those Africans full of bullet holes, the same holes that they are filling us with so that we look like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue, N.S.!!

Well, let me put it to you THIS way! What would the tribal leaders have done with the captives of other tribes IF the pink-assed Caucasoid hadn’t been around, just attempting to gain some free labor to build up a stolen country? What would they have done N.S.? If there had been no one around to give these captives to, what would have happened to them? You can spin the shit anyway you like, but it is people like you that get on my last goddamn nerve! You sit somewhere attempting to downplay the role of those pink-skinned rejects from hell by stating that it was the African tribal leaders fault that we got ourselves a big ole case of slavery in AmeriKKKa, bigotry, racism, prejudice, Jim Crow, hate groups; the whole goddamn nine yards and ain’t a motherfucking pink-assed piece of worthless filth, guilty as hell of crawling and slithering over to Africa with the express purpose of bringing back free labor to build up what has now descended into a shithole.

And I also suppose that it wasn’t the pink-assed Caucasoid that even rowed the slaves back to AmeriKKKa. I suppose that the African tribal leaders accomplished THAT also. Am I right, N.S.? According to your way of thinking, I would be right on time with this because we all know that the African tribal leaders also had the boats just a waiting to hand deliver their African captives to the Caucasoid cocksuckers! Oh yes, indeed! After a meal of tea and scones and tacos, it was sailing time!

You know, you really ought to take something for this shit you’re spewing out. So spew it out elsewhere! Don’t come in here and vomit all over my goddamn blog with this vile ass bile because by the time those pink-assed skin motherfuckers had gone over to Africa and drooled over all those Black bodies that they were going to get by hook or by crook, they had the technology to do exactly what they did do and not a goddamn African tribal chief could have stopped them! And you goddamn well know this!

——————————————————————————

Some of you are probably saying by now, “Why is this even relevant at this point in time because it is all water under the bridge.” Would that it were so because you see, because of these ‘events’, we are where we are in this point in time. Negro or Black people or whatever we are calling ourselves at any given time in history right up to today, we have no idea who we are. And I for one am beyond fed up and tired with Negro people going along with everything that some shithead with an agenda is spreading. Start thinking for yourselves and if it doesn’t make sense, then don’t try believing it. Even if you stand alone, take that stand because I would prefer to stand alone than to listen to lies and then run with them. We have it bad enough as it is and we feel bad enough about ourselves as it is without being made to feel worse by listening to and taking up lies as to how our ancestors arrived on the shores of AmeriKKKa. Will we ever get reparations for our forefathers and for us? Hell no! Because make no mistake, slave labor is continuing today. Don’t think so! Who is sitting inside a For Profit Prison turning out items to be sold in stores for corporations? Newsfuckingflash! It ain’t filled with pink assholes! It is filled with Blacks; Negroes!

So don’t buy the bullshit that African tribal leaders are responsible for why my permanent tanned ass is sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed in AmeriKKKa! They did not ask those goddamn pink-assed motherfuckers to row to the shores of Africa and they damn sure as hell did not row our ancestors to AmeriKKKa! That ain’t on them! I don’t give a damn what anybody says. And if it don’t make sense, and someone is coming at you with the same shit that was flung at me, shoot that shit down! Don’t let them have you believing all up and down on some straight up bullshit!

Happy Slaves Bake Birthday Cake For George Washington!

slave baking book

I’m a happy slave in America!
I bake cakes for presidents.
I ain’t got no smarts or schooling
 and when I talk, I don’t make sense.

But I’m as happy as can be
 ’cause I’m baking cakes for presidents.
So, when next you re-write history
 tell no lies and I mean no offense.

If you can’t take the truth,
 that I baked cakes for presidents,
 then that shit is all on you
 because slavery is my defense.

How many lies will you tell?
That I came of my own free will?
You with Pinocchio’s nose,
 let me present you with my bill!

For over four hundred years,
I’ve been owed for baking that cake.
And as I stand in shackles and chains,
I am a testament to the truth you fake!

Happy slaves? Goddamn it! For real? Get the fuck outta here! First, we had textbook publisher McGraw-Hill stating that Africans willingly immigrated to America to work. They were not dragged to AmeriKKKa to become slaves. According to McGraw-Hill, the Africans came here alongside the Irish and other immigrants seeking long-term good paying jobs. You see, this version absolves whitey white asses of knowing that their ancestors were depraved rejects from hell; they are too but that fact should not be bandied about. You see, slavery, rape, whips, chains, shackles and torture don’t have quite the nice ring to it and so tone that shit down. Smooth it over. Make slavery into something that it was not. Make it into a resort. Yeah! That sounds better. Slavery was nothing more than a resort and those Black folks at the resort were as happy as can be, just a baking cakes and some more shit!

Now, let’s cut the bullshit!

Apparently, there is a new book out titled, A Birthday Cake For George Washington and the book ‘suggests’ that a slave named Hercules was just so goddamn happy to be slaving away making a birthday cake for an old wooden toothed bastard by the name of George Washington, that he just could not contain himself! With his skills, he ‘bettered’ himself and should have been proud of it. Oh no! He was not the usual run-of-the-mill slave that had no skills at all and so therefore, had not a thing to say for themselves, no Hercules, the cake baker for George Washington was a cut above the rest and his life was practically lived like he was one of the ‘gentry’. Like hell!

George Washington’s overseer was just as vicious and cruel as any other overseer; just as vicious, depraved and barbaric as today’s goddamn overseers that are stationed in prisons and jails all across this shithole. We are to constantly get bombarded by these atrocious lies; spoon fed fake ass shit and told to eat it up, swallow it down and beg for more. I am fed the fuck up with white motherfuckers who continuously water down history to suit their own fucked up agenda. They will pass shit off as caviar and think nothing of it so long as it makes them look better. Newsfuckingflash! There ain’t a goddamn jewel, cloth of satin or plastic surgeon that could turn you filthy ass bastards into something fit for hell!

“My Final State Of The Union Lies!”

 

sotu 2016

 

“My fellow Americans, I stand before you this evening as a testament to what America stands for. America stands for drone strikes, bombs, torture, war, police brutality, genocide, war crimes, depravity, income inequality, homelessness, mass incarceration, slavery, great trade agreements like the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, NAFTA and now the TPP(Trans-Pacific Partnership) and a whole list of other endearing and enduring qualities that make this the most brutal and benevolent dictatorship on the face of this planet.”

“I have been guided by the most vile elitist shits that have ever slithered anywhere. I am a mere puppet; a most willing puppet for my masters. I knew when I promised ‘hope and change’ that I was telling the biggest lie ever told, but I told it anyway. It was all about me and mine. To hell with you and yours. You, the American people, are on your own. What is to come will put the Hunger Games to shame. When I sign the TPP Agreement, it will open up a whole new can of worms that Americans will just have to swallow. This new agreement is of course, NAFTA on steroids and why should I concern myself with holding corporations accountable for anything? Corporations are going to foot the bill for the lavish lifestyle that I intend to keep on living even as I exit the White House. As accustomed as I have become to having my every wish granted and those of my family, how in the hell can I accept anything less. I will not! Count on it! I have feathered my nest and feathered it well and at the expense of the American people. You have been sold down the river Styx by me and by the rest of the worthless shits in congress.”

“If you had any idea of what is to come, you’d all kill yourselves; each and every one of you. The shit that is about to come down the pike is that horrible. But fear not! For the next president will continue the same agenda as  I have. The TPP is a done deal and there is nothing that any of you can do to stop it. That is one reason why I have placed before you, an empty chair. This chair is to serve as a reminder of just how violent you people are. How dare you accuse me of violence when I am only keeping America safe from the terrorists that we trained. I am only doing my part to get a handle on ‘death by gun violence’. Americans are enraged and that is a fact. Just take a look at all of the mass shootings that have occurred in the last few decades. Gun violence is off the charts. Now I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that police murders of real bad Black people is a bad thing. No, it is not. I am Black and therefore, take it from me, Black folks are some bad motherfuckers. I was a junior senator from Chicago and we all know that Chicago is a warzone and those Black folks are just shooting indiscriminately and in a confused and chaotic way. Those people need to be put down and eventually I am going to have to call out the National Guard to put them down since the Black folks in Chicago are calling for the resignation of my former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. Rahm has a tough job that no one else wants. If he is not allowed to continue on as mayor, then I don’t know what will become of Chicago. Those thugs need some ‘tough love’ and who better to deliver it to them then Rahm Emanuel. Rahm, stay the course!”

“I know that I briefly touched on the TPP(Trans-Pacific Partnership) but I shall take this time to expound on it even further. You see, there is a lot of misinformation out there and I am going to put that to rest right now by telling the truth regarding this wonderful new trade agreement that will be completely beneficial to the American people and take it from me, there is not one detail that was overlooked in making sure that the American people will not suffer with the implementation of the TPP. The real deal about the TPP is this. The TPP is a revolutionary new concept that will foster partnerships around the globe that will increase American exports by leaps and bounds. It will in effect, level the playing field so that American small businesses will be able to do business on a global scale. They will no longer be hindered by tariffs and other taxes that were designed to make it less desirable for them to attempt to do business other than locally. American businesses will have so many more options open to them. This trade agreement partners with eleven other countries; thereby opening up a new customer base for American businesses to sell their merchandise to. American companies will now be able to do a more lucrative business since they will be able to sell their merchandise directly to Australia, Japan, Canada, Malaysia, Peru, Vietnam, Chile, Brunei, Singapore, Mexico and New Zealand. Now, I ask you, how is this a bad thing? It is not. The problem with many opponents of this agreement is their inability to accept change. Change is a fundamental concept of doing business. We cannot allow ourselves to stagnate and become a victim of isolationism.”

“America was built on trade agreements. There would be no America if not for trade agreements. Where would we be if not for the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Agreement; an agreement between African kings and Europeans whereas the Europeans traded their knowledge of Christianity to the African kings in exchange for a ‘show of hands’ in deciding who wanted to immigrate to America to ‘slave away’ to build up America? I am well aware of the benefits of trade agreements because my dear wife, Michelle Obama would not be my wife if it were not for the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Agreement. Thank you Massa, sir! I have the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Agreement to thank for my two lovely daughters, Sasha and Malia. All’s well that ends well, as I always say.”

“I realize that I have been accused of attempting to ‘fast track’ this agreement so as to deny congress even a glimpse of the details. The conspiracy theorists are at it again. I want to assure the American people that I am fed up with conspiracy theorists. They do nothing but foster disbelief in my sincerity and by demanding that something be done about my lack of transparency in so far as the TPP is concerned and this in turn, undermines my ability to see to it that more Americans enjoy the American dream of business ownership. And believe me, it is a dream!”

“It is my understanding that there are other false rumors floating around out there that the TPP will actually kill more dolphins because dolphins travel with tuna, however, America has long stood with the dolphins even to the point of enacting a law called the ‘Dolphin Safe Label’ which is designed to minimize dolphin fatalities during fishing for tuna for canning. If people are so worried that the TPP will ignore these laws and policies then I have just one suggestion, “Stop eating tuna! That would solve that tiny little problem and it really is that simple.”

“Now then, a little bird told me the other day that many are concerned that corporations will be able to sue America. Hogwash! Just because TransCanada is suing the U.S. over that Keystone XL pipeline issue,  is no reason to think that other corporations all across the globe will follow suit. And even though, some think that the U.S. will lose that $15 billion lawsuit, I have the word of every corporate executive from ALL corporations in all twelve countries involved in this TPP Agreement that they promise NOT to bring suit against the U.S. for any reason; now and forever more. I believe them just as I still believe in the innocence of every Wall Street banker that caused the economic collapse of 2008 and my belief in them as well as former Department of Justice head, Eric Holder’s belief in them resulted in not one of those criminals viewing life from behind prison walls. Banks are capable of regulating themselves and they are doing a fine job. I trust them to continue. That is what America is all about, trust. If you can’t trust corporate executives, who can you trust?”

“Never let it be said that I neglected to address all of the issues that the conspiracy theorists are going on and on about regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Folks are even claiming that the food Americans eat will somehow lack oversight due to lax safety measures. Relax, your food will continue to meet high standards and will be inspected by the USDA and the FDA and by a brand new agency that I will announce at my upcoming ‘town hall meeting’ that will be held in Oregon at the Wildlife Refuge that has been taken over by American patriots who are merely standing up for the right to commit arson to cover up other crimes and attempt to get away with it. There is nothing wrong with a bit of patriotism especially if you are the ‘white’ color!”

“Where was I? Oh yes, more good news. The ‘made in America’ label is destined for a comeback thanks to the TPP since Japan has just signed on to purchase all of Japan’s flags from the U.S. Every single Japanese flag will have a ‘made in America’ label. I can just hear the sounds of construction work on new flag making businesses as I speak. Not to be left out, Mexico has requested that all of its drugs be labeled ‘destined for America’. Now, who can compete with that? Americans have been begging for inexpensive drugs and now we are finally able to advise you that you will get your wish.”

“Some Americans are concerned about their jobs. Your job at McDonalds is safe. If you work for a temp agency, nothing will change. You will continue to report to wherever the temp agency employs you, temporarily, and we will continue to count you, statistically speaking, as a full-time employee when adjusting the unemployment figures. Your hard work is recognized and never you doubt it. For those of you who are currently labeled as ‘lay-abouts, otherwise known as ‘the unemployed’, you will soon find that there will be work aplenty at making flags for Japan. Hone up on your sewing skills. Get ready for a deluge of orders.”

“This should clear up all concerns the American people have over the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and with that being said, I would now like to address AGAIN, the reason for the empty chair that I invited to my final SOTU address. This chair is extremely important due to the fact that it stands for every ‘white’ person that is not here that I would have invited if they had not been shot dead by the guns they worship. This empty chair is representative of all the ‘white’ folks that have perished thanks to lax gun control laws. It is time that we take a stand. The time is now and I take a stand today. I have already, by  means of executive orders, attempted with my pen to enact even more strict guidelines for gun purchases. Real bad Black folks need to understand that they should just stop murdering ‘white’ folks! So by my implementing these new strict measures, real bad Black folks that show up at gun shows by the thousands will have a hard time purchasing an arsenal of weapons that they use to shoot up little ‘white’ kids like they did at Sandy Hook Elementary School. They will not have the ability to shoot up movie theatres and college campuses and their own churches in the south. I have no idea why slavery was ever abolished because it is crystal clear that these real bad Black folks that are hell bent on killing ‘white’ folks need some guidance, a whip and some shackles. I am attempting to address this problem by mass incarceration. Soon, the figures will be revealed that we have ‘abducted’ and imprisoned even more real bad Black folks than has already been reported. The numbers lie. There are millions more unaccounted for.”

“I have instructed the slave patrols via the Department of Justice to see to it that Black folks are kept in their place and the only place they have in our society is behind bars; for their own good of course; other than that, dead is good! This TPP Agreement will not affect them because the Blacks that we lock up will continue to provide America with their contributions of free labor.”

“In closing, I would like to add that it has been my greatest pleasure to have been elected as the first Black President of the United States. I promised ‘hope and change’ and I do believe that I have delivered on my promise. There is no ‘hope’ for America and Americans will not be able survive the ‘change’ that is about to come. My Administration, as I promised, has been the most transparent in the history of this great nation. I have been transparent about the fact that I love drones, war, torture, lies, hypocrisy, brutality, corruption, barbarity and censorship. Thanks to my leadership, America started and is in the middle of every fracas from here to South America, the Middle East, Ukraine and the South China Sea. It is our business to mind the business of every country and nation on this planet and we shall not fail in bringing democracy to each and every one of them for humanitarian purposes, of course. America reigns as the supreme Superpower and she will continue the course of wars, occupation and hegemony. Finally, the question has been presented to me as to whom I will back as the next president. That is an easy question to answer. Why, Ted Cruz, of course, for the simple reason being that neither he nor I were born in America!”

“May God help the American people! Thank you and goodnight!”

“The Atlantic slave trade between the 1500s….”

blackandwhite

 

…and 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the southern United States to work on agricultural plantations.”

Now, ain’t that a bitch??!!!! The above statement was brought to you by your favorite hosed-down version of history Textbook publisher McGraw-Hill or in other words, the ‘lily-whited assed version of the Africa-to-America slave trade that was really not slavery at all. You see, according to McGraw-Hill, the Africans got into boats when they heard that there were good paying jobs for all and they rowed to the shores of America, got processed, was given citizenship papers and was put to work on ‘agricultural plantations’ that paid them a decent wage. In fact, this version rivals my own. Read my version and then decide which version is more believable.

First Edition: The Unedited True Edition of Black History

Introduction: First of all, forget everything that you have never read in the non-existent history books (until McGraw-Hill came along) about Black History as this book will replace no books ‘McGraw-Hill’on Black History.

One day, while sailing the oceans blue, pale skinned creatures happened upon the shores of a most beautiful land, filled with the beautiful dark ones. The beautiful dark ones were prized for their obvious beauty, gracefulness and strength since the pale skinned creatures hid behind giant lions while watching the beautiful dark ones as they ran and jumped and danced and stomped. Once the lions moved gracefully aside and the pale skinned creatures were no longer hidden from the view of the beautiful dark ones, the beautiful dark ones were very much afraid as they had never seen such pale skins before. They were overcome with awe and wonder and so they immediately ceased their dances and jumps and timidly walked over to touch the golden locks of the pale skins.

And as the two began to get to know one another over the tea and crumpets that the pale skinned creatures provided, it was like they had been waiting on meeting one another for ages. The tribal dialects of the beautiful dark ones were much like the forked tongued speech of the pale creatures and so communication between the two was possible. The pale skins communicated to the beautiful dark ones their need to acquaint them with their god and for the desire of the pale skins to see that the beautiful dark ones were accepted into heaven as perceived by the pale ones. This was met with approval from the beautiful dark ones and a church was soon erected and a sermon was preached whereupon, the beautiful dark ones immediately began to light a bonfire, gather around it and chant in some mysterious and strange tongue. The pale skins quickly made it known to the beautiful dark ones that this was not acceptable behavior as their god did not approve of such conduct. The beautiful dark ones felt that they were being admonished and graciously asked the pale skins to leave their land whereupon the pale skins threw themselves at the feet of the beautiful dark ones and begged them to come with them to a place of even greater beauty where the sun shines both day and night upon fields of amber grain waving in the breeze as far as the eye can see and where mountains of majestic proportions beckon and summon one to scale lofty heights and to then descend down to fruited plains; this land was called, America!

The pale skins told the beautiful dark ones that they would live in the finest homes, eat and drink from containers made of delicate bone china and crystal and then they would gaze upon the savior that came to earth to save all souls from eternal damnation and forever live in mansions in the sky and that there would be no need for witch doctors as medicine was free for all in this land of opportunity and that there were other dark skinned people there that would welcome them with open arms just as they too had welcomed the pale ones. “Why not come to this new and wonderful and different paradise?” the pale ones asked. “Why not board our ships that are equipped with every luxury imaginable for your pleasure? Tables adorned with fine cloth await you, heaped with the choicest meats and fruits and other delicacies too deliciously tempting to be denied.”

This was met with much enthusiasm by the beautiful dark ones as they talked amongst themselves and thought to only go for a visit as they knew that they would one day miss their home and wish to return and so they boarded the beautiful vessels and they sat at the fine tables covered in rich cloth and ate the freshest meats and swam in pools shaped like sea shells. The pale ones waited on the beautiful dark ones, hand and foot; seeing to their every need and making sure that they lacked for nothing. Many months passed and finally, the lookout called, “Land ho!” There was much rejoicing for the long voyage was over and the beautiful dark ones were glad to finally find solid ground beneath their feet once again and to see this glorious new land that the pale ones had spoken so glowingly of.

As the ship docked, the pale ones escorted the beautiful dark ones to shore and then a strange thing occurred, the pale ones disrobed and begged the beautiful dark ones to inspect them for blemishes and flaws, bad teeth and bunions. The beautiful dark ones were bewildered. They had no clue as to what to look for as they did not know what would be expected of the pale ones. The pale ones then explained to the beautiful dark ones that they needed them to help, temporarily, with their plantations which they described as virtual cities that sustained themselves by making and planting everything that was needed for the people to live on. The pale ones beseeched the beautiful dark ones to inspect them so that those of the pale skin that were more highly valued because of their flawlessness could toil alongside the beautiful dark ones for they were truly wondrous and flawless in beauty; a joy to behold.

And so it goes, the pale ones labored alongside the beautiful dark ones in perfect harmony with one another. At the end of each day’s nine to five shift, both the pales ones and the beautiful dark ones would sit on the porch and laugh and share punch and joke about the heat and the flies and watch the crops that they had planted together, grow. They all got along beautifully with nary a harsh word uttered between the two, nor was there ever a fight amongst them. And when the beautiful dark ones decided that it was time to go back from whence they came, ocean liners were put at their disposal to return them to their native land and as they disembarked, they were welcomed back into the bosom of their loving family and everyone lived happily ever after.

The End.

I am so glad that I stumbled across this edition of Black History because now I realize that things were not as bad as what I had not read in earlier history books that did not include Black History in them. I was under the mistaken impression that African chiefs had sold other tribes’ slaves into bondage to the Caucasians. I was not told how the Caucasians came to be in Africa in the first place, I just took history’s non-word for it that the Caucasians had a legitimate and humanitarian reason for being in Africa. So, it does my heart good to get the real reality and truth as to how Negro people came to be in America, but when I look around today, I am unable to see how if we once got along so well, we can’t seem to get back to that. Hmmm…. Something else to ponder, I guess. Oh well, history is not supposed to be perfect, just true!

And as you can see, I so love the truth!!!

Last but not least, why don’t we all just re-write history to suit our own personal agenda? Why should we allow a little thing like ‘the truth’ get in the way? Oh, never mind. We don’t!

Wal-Mart’s Shit Is Backed UP!

walmart

Wal-Mart has flung so much shit at customers and employees that when both threw the shit back at Wal-Mart, the piles of shit and bullshit caused massive plumbing problems that were felt in Wal-Mart stores from California, Texas, Oklahoma and as far away as Florida and the shit abruptly closed five Wal-Mart stores.

Employees were notified via a shitty letter from Wal-Mart’s corporate office that the stores were too knee-deep in bullshit and shit to remain open. Employees are aghast, not only over the stench but over the fact that Wal-Mart may in fact be lying as to why the shit hit the fan resulting in closed stores. Employees should know that ‘corporations NEVER lie! They just ‘shy’ away from the truth. It is not the same thing. *wink* *wink*

 

Word on the street is that Wal-Mart employees have been staging sit-ins for a living wage and that Wal-Mart’s official word is, “To hell with THAT shit!” “Close the goddamn stores and hang a ‘toilet is out-of-order sign on the goddamn door, NOW!” Something stinky this way comes. I suspect foul play because when the shit hits the fan, everybody should know to duck!

 

Employees of Wal-Mart lined up at Motel 12 to await further instructions from Wal-Mart management on the plight of the plumbing unknown bottom line corporate profits problems. Wal-Mart has assured all 4 full-time employees that they will be transferred to other Wal-Mart stores in Bangladesh and Madagascar. They must, however, pay their own travel costs and other expenses related to relocation. Thousands of part-time employees are on their own. Never has this much shit been known to close 5 stores in 4 states. Simultaneous massive plumbing problems of this magnitude are off the Richter scale! Even California is shocked and they are used to shitshock waves!

 

Seriously? How in the hell does Wal-Mart get away with closing 5 stores, simultaneously in 4 states and state that it is due to plumbing problems? According to reports, there have been no requests for permits for plumbing issues at any of the 5 closed Wal-Mart stores. The stores will be closed for at least 6 months. Also, at least, 2,200 workers are affected by the closures and at the Pico Rivera, CA Wal-Mart; the employees had staged a Black Friday protest over wages. And let us not forget that this was not such a jolly season for retail stores and they have been reeling ever since despite the bull roaring on Wall Street as we all know that that is just a magic act of smoke and mirrors and no substance.

 

Was it only a couple of months ago that Radio Shack filed for bankruptcy and most of those stores will close? JC Penny is barely holding on as is Sears and Kmart. I cannot wait to see how the government is going to skew the employment figures in the coming months and how economists are going to downplay Wal-Mart’s bullshit plumbing problems. Plumbing problems, my ass and pun intended!

“In Midland, Texas, where another store was closed, a plumbing inspector was turned away when he visited the store and offered to help secure construction permits.”

Does that sound like Wal-Mart has a ‘plumbing’ problem?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Won’t Sit Out This Show!

tragedy

When news is no longer news,
and its relevance has quickly waned,
it is because you do not care.
your outrage was clearly feigned.

When they point you in a direction
and say, “Here is your enemy!”
You gladly climb onboard,
and believe their lies, most readily.

Will you ever see the big picture,
and not focus on the absurd?
Is that why you wish to sleep,
and never have your dreams disturbed?

The awakening is here!
What’s before you must be faced!
If you are not prepared,
then I advise you to make haste.

This not at all a conspiracy.
You can lay that point to rest.
It is not about inducing fear.
And it’s not a broadcast test.

Wake up and take a look.
Behold reality!
It could all have been avoided,
the part you’ll play in this tragedy!

So, do you want the good news first or the bad news? Okay! Okay! I’ll give you the ‘good’ news first. “Hear ye! Hear ye!” The retail earthquake has struck! And even though the average price of gas is $2.00 per gallon, that’s not been enough to ‘fuel’ a spending frenzy. Why ever not? With gas prices so low, why aren’t people shopping like mad instead of store after store announcing closings and bankruptcies? What? They can’t spin the shit out of shit and turn it into cotton candy any longer? JC Penney is closing more stores as is Macy’s, Sears and Kmart. RadioShack is closing more stores and is filing for bankruptcy protection. Good news, right?

And isn’t this nice? Homelessness in LA is much worse than previously thought. Really? Get outta here! Who would have thought? More good news?

And what’s more, we haven’t even begun to hit rock bottom yet. Not by a long shot! Another housing crisis is upon us! It seems that rents just about everywhere are skyrocketing and since many Americans are still reeling from the not too distant foreclosure crisis, renting is the only option and with an aging population and factor in low earnings, things ain’t looking so good. But that’s good news because we still get to tweet and ‘like’ each other all over Facebook, for now.

But check this out! According to Obama, “The shadow of crisis has passed,” he said, “and the State of the Union is strong.” Uh…what fairytale book was he reading out of? Delusional much Barack? Obama trumpeted job growth and other signs of recovery from the ashes of the 2008 economic crisis. Sheeeut! Job growth? JOB GROWTH? When did unprecedented numbers of retail closings and bankruptcies equate to ‘job growth and other signs of recovery’? Put that bullshit samich down! Retail is reeling from a lack of customers with discretionary income and that is reality. So that fluff that Obama is attempting to sell? It ain’t cotton candy, it’s fluffed shit! Oh, we’re doing fine. No worries folks. Folks, if I were you, I’d worry and I’m going to give you some advice. So pay attention.

Whatever bills you get, look them over carefully. Check your bank balance daily. Cut back on non-essential doodads. Buy on-sale items and only what you need. Something is going down and it’s going to get ugly. Case in point. My internet/phone bill is usually $65.00 a month. Saturday, when my bill came, it was $101.38. When I perused the hell out of the bill, the company had charged me double for Federal taxes and charged me for internet security that they weren’t providing. Here is what I did. I hung up and I called them back and I said, “speak loudly and clearly as this call is being taped for a complaint that will be filed with the Attorney General’s office. Now, tell me AGAIN, why you are charging me double for Federal taxes and for services that you are not providing!” After I hung up, my bill is now $35.00.

This morning, I called my bank to check my balance. There was a $2.00 ‘statement fee’ listed under posted transactions. When the customer service rep came on the line, I said, “speak loudly and clearly as this call is being taped for a complaint that will be filed with the Attorney General’s Office. I said, “When did you notify me that I was going to be charged a $2.00 ‘statement fee’? I must first be advised of new fees BEFORE they apply!” The $2.00 fee is being removed. However, I was told that this new fee is a monthly fee that is being charged to my account to pay for the bank to mail to me my bank statement. They are now charging me $24.00 a year for me to receive my bank statement, a statement that I hadn’t been charged for in the past. If I do all my banking online, no fee. I am not doing my banking, online. If the hackers can hack into government computers, then they damn sure as hell can hack into my shit, even with protection.

The shit is about to hit the fan and companies are attempting to rip you off more than ever in any way they can. I’ve never seen it this bad. And I have seen some bad shit! Protect yourself because this party is seriously over folks.

Oh that’s right, I promised you some bad news! A liquor store is opening up two miles down the highway from me! Oh happy day! Oh happy day! The booze will chase my blues away! Hallelujah! If you need a job, try and get hired at a liquor store. They’ll be the last to go out-of-business, believe me! That’s bad news that I can take!

The War In Afghanistan Is Not Over!

protecting that poppy

The war in Afghanistan is not over,
since an occupying force remains.
The government lies again,
and not one military whore complains.

I’m not buying this load of bullshit,
when 10,000 boots are on the ground.
If the conflict is really over,
why are those whores still hanging around?

They’re guarding those poppy plants,
for a growing worldwide demand.
Yep, the good ole red, white and blue,
is still smuggling in contraband.

Now go sell it out on the streets,
so they can bust your ass real quick.
You’ve got to learn that it’s their game,
and they sell it, brick by brick.

There’s a methadone high just waiting,
for the junkies strung out so bad.
Get your ass inside a clinic,
you will make Big Pharma glad.

They’ve got everything you need,
because now you’re getting high.
You’re locked in good and tight,
and you can kiss your ass goodbye.

The government is just a cartel,
running drugs in every hood.
And if you think you can escape,
then the CIA ain’t doing what it should.

Oh, we’re the good guys, that’s for sure,
and you can take that to the bank.
Just don’t try to cash the check,
because it ain’t even worth a franc.

U.S. Ends Its War in Afghanistan

President Barack Obama has decided to keep nearly 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014, but then quickly pull them out over two years.

The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan ended its combat mission Sunday, marking the formal—if not real—end to the longest war in American history.

The new, slimmed-down allied mission, Campbell said, will be called Operation Resolute Support. Back in Washington, the Pentagon said its piece of the new mission will be called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/us-ends-its-war-in-afghanistan/ar-BBhiyou

Ah…SENTINEL! What does that word mean?

sen·ti·nel

noun: sentinel; plural noun: sentinels
1.
a soldier or guard whose job is to stand and keep watch.

verb
1.
station a soldier or guard by (a place) to keep watch.

So, they’re now calling it ‘Operation Freedom’s Sentinel’. Well, we know ain’t no goddamn ‘freedom’ of Afghan people going on, not as long as even 10,000 U.S. troops aka whores are stationed in Afghanistan. What I do know is that since the U.S whores have been stationed in Afghanistan, poppy production has skyrocketed. So, it would appear that what’s being freed is the poppy plant and so since it would appear that the poppy plant seeks freedom, there must be a sentinel to protect its freedom, thus ‘Operation Freedom’s Sentinel’ was born. Stand guard over the poppy until the poppy is ready and then when it’s ready, give it a nice ‘free’ plane ride outta Afghanistan. I gotta hand it to ’em, they got a way with words. They fucking spin it ’til the majority of Americans are too goddamn dizzy to see what the hell they’re up to. No worries, step right in, I’ll stop the fucking spin!!

Fuck The Fake Media!

Fuck the fake media and fuck their lies.
They’ve an agenda that’s against our very lives.

Their fake ass shit is smoke and mirrors.
They hide the true faces of our killers.

We’re to forget about the war we fight in Syria,
and not think about the shit we stirred in Libya.

Have you forgotten the invasion of Iraq?
Why isn’t the media focusing on that?

They distract us with their instigating shit,
and have us listen to a lie that Holder spit!

We all know that Obama is a puppet.
And Henson’s got himself another Muppet.

Obama never stood for hope and change,
and Muppet Holder loves the New York Stock Exchange.

Now let’s all turn our backs on CNN.
They’re owned by the shadow bogeymen.

When we fight amongst ourselves, it’s what they want,
and that is why they make up shit to taunt,
the people of all races into hate.
Don’t listen and do not take the bait.

If we all march together and as one,
and maintain the momentum, they will run.

Their aim is to divide us into groups.
If we fall for that shit, then we are dupes.

Never trust the media; they are whores,
for the elites that will destroy us with their wars.

The fake ass mainstream media is designed to distract, divide and conquer us. If we are fighting each other, the oligarchy win and they are who the media whores whore themselves out for. If we can learn to come together to fight against those who are behind the scenes of this shit stirring, they lose and that is why they have upped the ante, so to speak. It’s no holds barred. Wake up! Fight, but let’s not fight each other. We need each other and that IS the truth.

Ebola Went Missing On Election Day?

imagesE5WDILI0

So, you stood in line and voted,
since Ebola took a holiday.
Ain’t that a funny thing?
Ebola went missing on Election Day?

And now the Dems are quite upset.
It’s Obama’s fault they know.
Their ranks have been reduced.
And once again, they’re eating crow.

What’s the worst thing that could happen?
Will we all end up on the streets?
Can we expect more of the same,
as the Reps regained their seats?

Oh, this here is a little ditty.
about America’s selected shits.
A vote for one is a vote for all.
They’re going to tear our ass to bits.

You’ve got it bad, you say?
Stop whining, nobody cares.
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps.
If that doesn’t work, then say some prayers.

“Oh Jesus and God in Heaven,
our goose is cooked for sure.
Help us out of this mess.
Send us a savior so good and pure.”

“We need your help right now.
There is fear throughout the land.
Pluck the wicked from our bosom,
and extend to us a helping hand.”

“Shall we be forever shunned by you?
Or is this just another test?
Must we pay a higher price,
than of those we have oppressed?”

“We can’t help it that we’re dense.
And you know we never learn.
It’s because we’re all insane.
But this is hell and we’re starting to burn!”

If you stood in line and voted and someone behind you was coughing and had red eyes, a hideous rash and was losing weight right before your very eyes, it wasn’t Ebola because Ebola took a vacation on Election Day so that you could vote. Now, back to “wassup with that Ebola thing??!!

P.S. It’s “Party time!” The Reps are all up in DA House AND DA Senate! Break out the Boones Farm discount wine and get this party started, fer sure!!!! LMAO!!!
