What Are You Going to do Now Senators?

Deborah Ramirez

Have you ever been faced with a situation where someone keeps telling you that you can’t have something that you really want? I’m talking about as an adult, not a child. Well, it seems as though the Republicans are in that unenviable position right now. Yet another accuser, Deborah Ramirez, has come forward with some very disturbing accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. And, for the second time in a week, the accuser is calling for an F.B.I. investigation. Now why would she ask to get the F.B.I. involved if she had made a false accusation? But Mitch, Chuck, Orange Boi and the boys seem to be digging in their heels for a fight. They flatly refuse to get the F.B.I. involved…WHY NOT?

If you’re not familiar with the situation, let me give you the short version… The Orange Bloviating Blob (who is an accused sexual predator himself) nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the SCOTUS. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused him of attempted rape back when they we both in high school. Naturally, the judge vehemently denies the allegations and the Senate Judicial Committee, which is currently controlled by the Republicans has their “easy nomination” thrown into turmoil and confusion. After a week of negotiations and arguing, another hearing is set up to hear the allegations. Then…boom, another accuser comes forward saying that “Frat boi,” I mean Judge Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were at a party in college and forced her to touch his penis. Now, we need to establish that both of these situations involved large amounts of alcohol being consumed at raucous teenaged parties. In the latest situation, friends and associates involved say that “Frat boi’s” whole demeanor changed when he drank too much. The problem seems to be that he spent a large amount of his “downtime” in high school and college “DRUNK OUT HIS ASS!” How many know that many of us make very poor decisions when we’ve been drinking to excess?

So now what are you going to do Senators? Are you going to attempt to dismiss this latest accuser? Because, I  have a sneaking suspicion that there are probably more victims but seeing what these ladies are being put through, I can see why they would want no parts of this bs. However, Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels' attorney, claims he is also representing a woman with “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh”

I renew my original protest from the beginning. Serving on the SCOTUS is a privilege, not a right. Judge “Frat Boi” Kavanaugh has no business receiving a LIFETIME appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. PERIOD!

Who is Telling the Truth - Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Blasey Ford Debacle?

Does anyone else get a feeling of déjà vu? I know that I’m not the only one that remembers the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill debacle. Now we have the Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Blasey Ford debacle. Yet the Republicans seem hell bent on pushing this… person’s nomination through. Ms. Hill’s allegations involved sexual harassment. Dr. Ford’s allegations involved sexual assault or more specifically, attempted sexual assault. I’m hearing a lot of grumbling about why she waited so long to come forward? Is she a paid, political operative planted to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination? To that I respond by asking who in their right mind would subject themselves to the type of abuse that she undoubtedly would undergo? I doubt if there is enough money in the world to sign up for that. She simply said that she felt that is was her civic duty to come forward and share her story.

Now I’m hearing that Kavanaugh is digging in for a fight and the Whitehouse will not be withdrawing his nomination. He says he didn’t do it. His witness that was in the room is an admitted teenaged alcoholic who was prone to blackouts. Dr. Ford said that both of them were stumbling drunk. To be sure, this is a mess of epic proportions. I realize that many of us did some really stupid things in high school but these are very serious allegations that must be addressed. I would like to think that we have learned a few things in all these years but I have zero confidence in that assertion.

The Criminalizing of Botham Jean Begins

This whole story is incredibly sad.  They had Botham Jean’s funeral yesterday… 
“To know Botham was to love Botham. He was the light in a dark room,” said pastor Michael Griffin, who met Jean at Dallas West Church of Christ. “Bo made us all better. Bo didn’t see color, he saw love.” (

Not so coincidentally, and shortly after the funeral, an affidavit was released stating that the police were searching his apartment for drugs.

Why was the Dallas Police Department executing a search warrant for drugs in his apartment. Then, I read that they found (or planted) a small amount of marijuana (pot, weed, happy cigs) Why is this even a thing?

What I am seeking to understand is why you need to search a murder victim’s home for drugs in the first place? What are they looking to do, defame the young man’s character? He was an innocent victim. He was in his home, minding his own business until this lying “heffer” invaded his space and murdered him.
Why does it seem as though when a person of color, particularly a black man is MURDERED, the police, the media and any and everybody else wants to drag the innocent victim’s name through the mud? Could it be that it’s clear to most everyone without the racial bias that the MURDERER IS WRONG but they have to justify letting them go free for their wrongdoing. No, we can’t let the little white princess go to prison for killing the big, weed-smoking, black man.  After all, he has to have some type of criminal activity in his past… “don’t they all…?” 
"Evidence from Botham Jean’s apartment supports Dallas police Officer Amber Guyger’s account that she shot Jean from across the room as she stood inside his apartment door," two law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the case told The Dallas Morning News. (https://www.dallasnews)
Let that sink in...

Was It An Accident, or Naw?

Okay, full disclosure, I’ve come home from a night of partying and been pretty “messed up” but I knew where I lived. Officer Guyger told the authorities that she was exhausted. She said that she parked on the wrong floor. She said the door was unlocked and it was dark. She thought she had an intruder in her apartment so she fired a fatal shot and killed the man in the apartment that she had actually entered. This man was in his own home. He was not threatening her  in any way. But…the story keeps changing… The door was locked… the  door was unlocked… the door was ajar… really? I guess it took them three days to get their story straight. Hey folks, the story still doesn't make any sense. Now, it appears that they are engaging in some serious victim blaming. This is often the case when an innocent person of color is MURDERED by law enforcement. In this case however, they aren’t going to find anything in this young man’s past to make him “a worthy victim.“ Botham Jean was a fine, young man; an upstanding citizen who had never been in trouble with the law. So, we can add to list of how you can die in America while being black - minding your own business in your own damn apartment. Where does this end?

 Let’s delve into this situation a little further, shall we? This officer, Amber Renee Guyger, shot a man in cold blood and she’s walking around free, again. Prior to be taken into custody, she stayed free for 3 days before she was even arrested only to be immediately released on $300,000 bond. Two words… WHITE PRIVILEGE!! Mix in a few white girl tears liberally with the blue wall and viola, no justice for Botham Shem Jean and his family.

This whole situation stinks to high heaven! Lies upon lies! She was so confused and exhausted yet she managed a kill shot? There are some eye-witness accounts that contradict Officer Guyer’s version of the story but yet she’s being treated like it was an accident, an unintentional act.  I wonder if the complete truth will ever be known.  I’m going to stay on top of this folks. Stay tuned.

Who Will Save America?

Fear” is the title of Bob Woodward’s book and an ever present state of mind for those of us sane folks left in AmeriKKKa. The excerpts from Mr. Woodward’s book are terrifying. He talks of Senior White House Staffers preventing the Orange idiot, a.k.a., 45 from sending a tweet to North Korea that could have been interpreted as an act of aggression. Let that sink in folks… THIS MORON was one tweet away from starting World War III!!!

This “man baby” has no idea in hell what he’s doing. Right now, 45 is more concerned about who wrote the New York Times Op-ed piece than running the country. I keep hearing this over and over again, what’s going to happen if we actually have a real crisis? George Bush had 911, Barack Obama had the financial crisis. We’ve already seen how this pseudo administration handles natural disasters. Over 3000 souls were lost in Puerto Rico and this idiot, 45, keeps talking about what a great job his administration did handling things. Wow… if that’s your idea of doing a good job, God help us if we have a major crisis.

So since the White House is in disarray, the Congress has no interest in doing anything about this train wreck I guess we’re going to have to save ourselves. It starts with getting these self serving Republicans out of office so we can get this moron 45 out of office. WE MUST VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6TH!!  We must vote as though our lives depend upon it.

Way To Go Nike

Why are these damn fools so angry? They’re angry because Nike chose a winner, Colin Kaepernick, to be the face of their 30th Anniversary “Just Do It” ad campaign? 

They have a right to their opinions and their feelings…(no matter how stupid they may be). But Nike is about winning and Kaep is a winner. I mean boycotting is your right as an American but setting some “ish” on fire that you paid for… That’s a special kind of STUPID. But it really shouldn’t surprise anyone. Prejudice, bigotry and hatred  is bred by ignorance.

That Orange idiot, 45, has hijacked the entire conversation to spread racial bigotry, anger and division.  It’s NEVER BEEN ABOUT THE FLAG OR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM!!! It has always been about Black and Brown people being MURDERED in the streets and the folks that are supposed to be protecting us getting away with said MURDERS.

So you geniuses keep burning and cutting up your Nike stuff. As far as I’m concerned, Colin Kaepernick is an American hero. And Nike is to be commended. Way to go Nike! You will be on the right side of history years from now and the other burning and cutting fools with look like the idiots that they are.

The Name Calling Has Begun

Wow… So many thoughts… On the first day of the campaign for Governor of  the State of Florida, Mayor Gillum’s opponent, Ron DeSantis called him a monkey.  

Of course he and his campaign spokespeople say he was referring to Mayor Gillum’s policies when he said that we can’t allow him to “monkey things up.” What the hell is that? I’ve never heard of “monkey this up.” Is that even a thing? I don’t know why anyone is surprised. This man idolizes the bigot-in-chief, 45, the big cheeto… Check out what 45 had to say about Gillum’s historic win. The monkey comment definitely sounds like something 45 would say and then have his people get on television and lie about it. These folks are unbelievable. They aren’t even trying to hide their bigotry and vitriol anymore. Mayor Gillum had a classy response and even called out 45 to “holla at him” next time he had something to say. He said it wasn’t even a dog whistle, it was more like a bull horn. DeSantis was speaking directly to the Republican base when he made that comment.

We cannot fight these people in a traditional way. They don’t know the meaning of fairness and they come out of the gate fighting dirty. Mayor Gillum better get ready because they are going to come at him full force. Democrats had better learn early that THEY CANNOT BE NICE.      

Let me end on this note… As of this writing, the DeSantis campaign and the Congressman himself said that there would be no apology issued. They categorically deny saying anything wrong thus they say no apology with be forthcoming.
