The PC Police Comes for Jamie Foxx…

Once again the Politically Correct (PC) Police has reared its ugly head as they look to make society as boring as possible!

While hosting the iHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday, Jamie Foxx took some shots at Bruce Jenner and his transgender transformation.

“We have some groundbreaking performances here too tonight,”

“Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his and her duet all by himself.”

“Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can,”

PC police decided these comments were over the top and labeled Foxx a Transphobic…..

Seriously people, lighten up!

In no way were Foxx’s comment Transphobic, you may not like his jokes but that doesn’t make them Transphobic. We are reaching a point where you can’t joke about anything, but we are ok with the idea that Jenner being able to document his transition and be paid a pretty penny for it.

No one condones hateful jokes, but please tell me where is the hate in these jokes????

What’s next for the PC police, protecting the rights of chickens? Will telling “Why did the chicken cross the road…” jokes be deemed cruelty towards animals?

By the way, it was cool making fun of Bruce Jenner when he was on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Back then we could make fun of him when he came across as an emasculated man in a household full of women, but hey that’s a different story!

Stephen A. Smith’s flawed vote for Republican Theory

 Full Disclosure, I am not a fan of Stephen A Smith so I don’t have many good things to say about this kat. This goes back to him appearing on Larry King’s show around 2009. And I have gotten into a couple of Twitter wars with Smith. At this point I believe he has blocked me, but all well. I hope this gets back to him some way, haha!!!

Stephen A Smith once again caused a stir this week when during a speech he suggested that all Black Americans should at least vote once for Republicans. Smith’s rationale was that the Democratic party has taken the Black vote for granted and that this would force both parties to realize they have to do a better job courting the Black vote.

So my initial reaction to Smith was……


I will say that Stephen A Smith has a valid point about the Democratic party taking the Black vote for granted, but he completely loses me with his suggestion of just voting for Republicans. While a situation where all Black Americans voted for Republicans would be a shock to the system of the Democratic party; why would that motivate the Republican party to court the Black vote?

At that point they (Republicans) get what they want in votes without having to do anything!

But hey, maybe there was something I was missing with Smith’s logic.

Ummmm, nah!!!!

On Michael Smerconish show on CNN, Smith went on to double-down on his logic without a good handle of the facts. Smith clearly states that he puts most of the blame on the Black Community, and barely mentions that the GOP has some work to do on their side.

As I stated earlier there is some validity to Smith saying the Dems take the Black vote for granted. We (Black people) should not blindly give our vote to any party, but at the same time BOTH parties, not only the Dems should give Black people and all voters a reason to vote for them.

If Stephen A Smith wants to convince me that I should not look at the GOP as the enemy then he has to explain to me why the GOP looks as me as the enemy.

When it comes to issues like Voting Rights, Tax cuts, Immigration, Income Inequality, and decreasing the number of uninsured Americans (want to repeal Obamacare with no replacement).

Smith talks about Democrats painting Republicans as bad guys but never speaks on what exactly Dems are wrong about. If Smith wants me and others to take him seriously he has to have a better grasp of the facts and stop demonizing (yes I said demonizing) Black Americans as being the uninformed.

Did Darren Wilson Deserve to Lose His Job?

After reading the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart’s piece ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was built on a lie and the DOJ‘s report on the shooting of Michael ‘Mike’ Brown, I found myself asking the question; Did Darren Wilson deserve to lose his job?

Yes, I know Wilson technically resigned from the Ferguson Police Dept, but I think it’s safe to say that he had no other choice after all the protest. And, no this is not meant to make the comparison between Brown being dead and Wilson no longer having a job.

This is about a false narrative that spurred on a movement (#BlackLivesMatter), a movement that has purpose, but as Capehart points out a movement that started out with “an inappropriate symbol”. 

And if Mike Brown is “an inappropriate symbol”, is it right to continue to vilify Wilson and refer to him as someone who, “crawled from under a rock….”?

We need to do better and not jump to conclusions without all the evidence first.  If we continue to push these false narratives, we will only destroy our credibility.

Strip Clubs, the Last Bastion of Personal Contact….

Strip Clubs are the last bastion of personal contact we have left in our society.

Now hear me out on this before calling me a perv!

In today’s society we have all this technology that has opened up access while at the same time creating an anti-social environment.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Skype, Texting (and all the texting apps, Whatsapp, Snapchat…..)

Think about it, it was only 10-years ago when the cell phone increased our availability and then everyone was talking on a cell phone. Now cell phones are smart phones, and with phones becoming smarter we have moved away from speaking on the phone to either texting, taking IG pics, creating Snapchat videos and updating Facebook and Twitter.

More often than not people prefer to text instead of talking on the phone, WTF????

The importance of personal touch and voice-to-voice conversation has been lost and replaced with the sound of a notification alarm on your phone.

And that brings me back to strip clubs and them being the last bastion of personal contact, HAHAHA!!!

Imagine if Strip Clubs all went the virtual route?


Strip Clubs allow personal touch, and actual face to face conversation, albeit it’s a fantasy and your possibly calling a chick Diamond, Shawty Shake the Pole, or the classics like Jasmine and Lexus (no offense to the ladies who names are Jasmine and Lexus).

Seriously, while my example of strip clubs might be a stretch; the point is we need to bring back the value of personal contact with your friends and family.  You can’t replicate that loud ass friend with the infectious laugh with an emoji or ‘LOL’ and ‘HAHAHAHAHA’.

So the point of all this is to keep in mind that we need to cool out on all the texting and start getting back to personal relationships.


We need to make sure strip clubs never become virtual, with an actual place we can walk into and ask for either Diamond, Shawty Shake the Pole, Lexus or Lexi, and Jasmine.

Republicans’ Open Letter to Iran, Not Cool but…..

Republicans’ Open Letter to Iran informing them that they can change any deal President Obama makes concerning the nuclear negotiations, was not cool but it’s not an act of treason!



Then Vice-President Joe Biden chimed in with the following

In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which Senators wrote directly to advise another country—much less a longtime foreign adversary

Really Joe, “thirty-six years”????

Wasn’t it 2007 when Representative Nancy Pelosi took a trip to Syria to sit down with Syrian President Bashar Assad? A trip that the Bush Administration advised against as they were in the middle of trying to punish Assad for Syria’s role in sending insurgents to Iraq.

Come on Joe, a bit of selective memory there.

While I believe Senator Tom Cotton’s Open Letter (signed by 46-Senate Republicans) was a bad idea and it shows the world how dysfunctional the US is right now. It doesn’t deserve the verbal bombs being thrown at Republicans lobbed by Liberals, relax.

If there is anything that Republicans’ like Cotton should be hammered for is that they have no plan on how to handle Iran except for regime change, aka US invading Iran.

It will not be enough to just bomb Iran’s nuclear sites as that will only delay and more than likely embolden the Iranians to move forward with nuclear. Let’s not put the cart before the horse and confirm the details of a possible deal, as the president stated; no deal is better than a bad deal.

NY Mets’ Daniel Murphy Criticized for Comments about Gays

On Tuesday MLB Ambassador of Inclusion Billy Bean (openly gay) visited the NY Mets Spring Training camp. In raising awareness Bean is providing “guidance and training related to efforts to support those in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community”.

During Bean’s visit 2nd baseman Daniel Murphy took the opportunity to comment on homosexuality. At this point I’m not sure if a reporter posed a question to Murphy or if he decided to comment on his own.

“I disagree with the lifestyle,” Murphy told the Daily News when asked about Bean’s visit. “But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love a teammate who is gay. I was glad he was here today and to hear his story.” “I do disagree with the fact that Billy is a homosexual,” Murphy continued. “That doesn’t mean I can’t still invest in him and get to know him. I don’t think the fact that someone is a homosexual should completely shut the door on investing in them in a relational aspect.” “Getting to know him.” That, I would say, you can still accept them but I do disagree with the lifestyle, 100%.”

“Maybe, as a Christian, that we haven’t been as articulate enough in describing what our actual stance is on homosexuality,” he said. “We love the people. We disagree about the lifestyle. That’s the way I would describe it for me. It’s the same way that there are aspects of my life that I’m trying to surrender to Christ in my own life. There’s a great deal of many things, like my pride. I just think that as a believer trying to articulate it in a way that says just because I disagree with the lifestyle doesn’t mean I’m just never going to speak to Billy Bean every time he walks through the door. That’s not love. That’s not love at all.”

Of course the PC world jumped on Murphy’s comments and called his comments “offensive” while others deemed them “hateful”. Boomer & Carton from WFAN in NYC chimed in….

“Daniel Murphy did everything he could to try to couch what he was saying so it didn’t come across as hateful or hurtful,” Carton said. “But the reality is, what he said is offensive.”

“He sounds like he’s pretty aggressive,” Esiason said. “That’s why he should just play baseball. His language is way over the top and too strong.”

Seriously folks!!!

Murphy didn’t say he hated gays or that they deserved to die. He was very articulate in stating that his belief disagrees with homosexuality, but that he wouldn’t shun Bean. There’s nothing wrong with what Murphy said, disagreeing with homosexuality is not offensive, hateful or aggressive as Boomer and Carlton stated.

This is the problem with our society, we are not always going to agree with each other and we can agree to disagree without hatred being involved. As for Murphy’s comments being aggressive, if anything Boomer and Carlton were aggressive in attacking Murphy. Their response to Murphy does more to discourage open conversation than encourage.

Hillary Clinton Wanted to Hide Her Emails

On March 2nd the NY Times reported that during her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used her personal email account to conduct State Dept business. Right off the bat this just didn’t sound right, I mean the idea of Clinton sending emails to her foreigner counterparts from a Gmail account just seemed absurd.

This is not illegal, but it’s suspicious to me that a high-ranking official in the State Dept would conduct business via personal email. Clinton’s predecessors, Colin Powell and possibly Condoleezza Rice (rarely used email) also used personal email from time to time.

What makes Clinton’s case a lil more suspicious than others is that she (or her people) registered the domain (

 to send her State Dept emails.

The way I look at this, Clinton did as much as possible to make it difficult to review her emails concerning State Dept business. And she did this knowing that she would be running for president in 2016. What could possibly be the reason for Clinton or any Secretary of State to avoid using the government email system?

If I decided to start using my Gmail account at work to contact vendors and discuss business, I am more than likely trying to cover-up something. Compliance would be on my ass trying to figure out why I was doing this as this would be a security concern as well as an audit issue.

There’s no defense of Hillary Clinton on this, and Democrats need to recognize this. This doesn’t necessarily validate Benghazi conspiracy theorist, but she should answer questions on this. She needs to be upfront about the rationale of using her personal email and put this story to bed!

Benjamin Netanyahu Makes his Case to Congress

Benjamin Netanyahu aka ‘Bibi’ went before a joint session of Congress and made his case for not trusting Iran in nuclear negotiations.

Before Netanyahu went into his reasons for not trusting Iran, he attempted to quiet the critics of his visit to Congress and the growing rift between him and President Obama. He opened up his speech thanking the US and especially President Obama for standing with Israel and made a special note that there have been times when Obama has supported Israel and it was never publicized.

As Netanyahu continued with his speech, the theme of the speech change from warning the US to more of lecturing the US on Iran.

And with all that lecturing and complaining about the current deal being discussed with Iran, Netanyahu had some memorable quotes to back his case…

“At a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.”

“When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.

“You don’t need intelligence agencies and secret information to know this. You can Google it.” (Iran cannot be trusted)

“[This deal] doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

“This deal won’t be a farewell to arms—it will be a farewell to arms control.”

“A better deal that Israel and its neighbors may not like, but with which we could live — literally.”

“If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country”

“A racecar driver without a car can’t drive. A pilot without a plan can’t fly. Without thousands of centrifuges, tons of enriched uranium or heavy water facilities, Iran can’t make nuclear weapons.”

Everything that Netanyahu listed above is already known by the P5 + 1 (United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France, plus Germany). In all honesty Netanyahu failed to present any new information for the P5 +1 to chew on. And with Bibi being dead set against the current deal being negotiated, you would think he would have a better solution….

So What Would Bibi Do (WWBD)?

“Negotiate a better deal….”


Thank You Captain Obvious…

Wow, great plan Bibi!

In response to Netanyahu’s great idea, Obama said the following

“On the core issue, which is how do we prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, which would make it far more dangerous and give it scope for even greater action in the region, the prime minister didn’t offer any viable alternatives,”

Obama said, adding that he had looked at the transcript and saw “nothing new.”

So while Netanyahu’s speech solidified hawkish Republicans stance on Iran, I believe he fell short of convincing everyone else that we need to change the current course of action. As Obama, John Kerry and Susan Rice have already stated, “A bad deal is worse than no deal”. There’s no rush to make any deal as long as there’s a deal.

It will be interesting to see if Obama will give a direct formal response to Netanyahu. In all honesty Obama should, and show you can’t be a foreign leader, come to the US, and think you can dictate foreign policy to the US.
