Friday Rap

My new favorite Congressman..the gentleman from New York.  Wish Obama could express this kind of fire without paying the price for being Black...





Another peaceful outreach from one of our upstanding Christian ministers....The Reverend Terry Jones...he of the Dove World Outreach program....wants to mark the anniversary of 9/11 by burning a Quran.
That will teach them 1.4 billion muzlims, he says..that they can't knock down our buildings...
Great way to get their attention anyway.....what ever happened to sitting down over a cup of something and talking out our differences?
Oh...I forgot.....we bombed Iraq....mindlessly support Israel....and can't seem to get out of Afghanistan, while keeping our nukes pointed at Iran, another quagmire of our making...
Who needs the lesson...and who's the bad guy again?

O-M-GEE!
Ellen and Kara leaving American Idol.....Following Simon out the door.....oh what a world...what a world!
Like we didn't already know it was a popularity contest anyway to see which shaggy haired sorta talented cute boy was going to win as voted by all the prepubescent 14 year olds with speed dial cell phones and text messaging...

Chelsea Wedding
Chelsea's Clinton's getting married to the tune of $3 million and folks are hyperventilating about the cost....WHY? It's not taxpayer money....
This is not somebody's baby mama marrying a high school dropout while shopping a reality show deal, being celebrated here...
Chelsea never got caught misusing drugs or being drunk in public like a certain set of twins who occupied the white house... nobody batted an eye about that wedding down in Crawford, Tx...or how much it cost..
This is the only child of one of the most successful power couples in the known universe...and she's marrying a kindred spirit...
What is the problem?

Obama snooping
One of my biggest problems with the Obama Administration is it's wholesale embrace of all things Bush when it comes to curtailing our civil liberties...We lost a lot of freedoms under the Bush Administration....
Obama campaigned saying he would restore them.....he has not...
In fact....he is asking that the powers invested in those National Letters that Bush used, to be expanded...
Bush used the National Letters ...which are nothing more than “no knock” search warrants without prior court approval.....to bully libraries into turning over lists of the books we read...bully banks into turning over private banking records...and phone companies to look at phone calls....
Now they want more power to go after all of our emails and web browsing history...
This from the man who said he wouldn't do this kind of stuff....When in fact...the death of our freedoms has speeded up under Obama..
The problem with expanding the powers of the Executive Branch is not with the President who made the expansion...it's the presidents who come after and refuse to relinquish the increased power and authority.

BP Oil Spill
Is it just me.....or was there too much unfounded and overblown angst over the BP oil spill.....Mother Nature seems to have taken care of the problem pretty much...nothing's ever perfect..
Let's open the waters...why don't we....so the fishermen can get back to work …
On to the next blown out of proportion catastrophe..

Feds take down two very rich white guys known for funding swift boat attacks on democrats...550 million dollars in fraud alleged....Read it here..
Given their age, bought and purchased political connections, as well as their natural complexion hidden under those Texas tans..they probably won't a spend a day in jail regardless of how many people they swindled..

All the Right Moves
The GOP is filibustering aid to small business and health care to 9/11 responders...
This after holding up unemployment benefits to those out of work...calling them lazy and shiftless and telling them to get off their asses and go find a job...
Yet...they still think they are going to win in November....
hmmmmmmm..I'll take that bet...

Al Jarreau..Shout out to Mr. Jarreau who was taken ill and had surgery this week. Get well soon....He is one of the nicest guys in the world who I was privileged to meet several years ago...
