It's been a loooooooong time, my friends...

I haven't posted on my blog in YEARS!!
With Facebook and such, I almost forgot about it. Well, here goes...

Before I addressed the situation of immigration and/or detention, I had to give it some thought.
Here goes:
Many people have been focusing on the illegality of the immigrants concerned and their law-breaking. Should you enter this country w/o the "proper procedure?" No, you shouldn't. But there is no way in HELL that I'm gonna lose and/or forget my humanity and not show sympathy and outrage on how these kids are being treated. They announced last night that there will be "tender care" centers for the babies being torn from their parents. Sounds like Orwellian speak and "double-speak" to me. Will it be "tender" and will anyone "care?" I'm seeing kids in CAGES and that is straight-up BULLSHIT! Some of these kids have been kept away from their parents for MONTHS. Imagine if that was YOU. I did, and I didn't like the way it made me feel. TRAUMATIZED is a word I would use to describe what these kids must be going through. The sins of the parents SHOULD NOT be visited upon the children.
Also, there is a difference between "crossing the border" in order for a better life (which is illegal, no doubt) and robbing a bank, assault, gang-bangin', selling meth, heroin, and coke, and doing them as well. When you do those things, you KNOW that you're doing something wrong and quite frankly, know you FUCKED UP! Coming here illegally (while still wrong) to work in jobs that the majority of US citizens DON'T TAKE because those jobs don't pay enough and have ZERO BENEFITS DOES NOT equate to those crimes that I mentioned. You also might want to place blame on the business people and companies that HIRE those self-same illegals (that'll be the day, I guess). And if you had kids and committed those crimes I listed, those kids WOULD NOT BE LOCKED UP IN CAGES! Social Services would come in and try to find a proper home for those kids. That is, if you already didn't ask your mom, or dad, or sister, or grandma, to take care of your kids while you're in jail/prison paying your "debt to society."
Now, have there been deportations under other presidents? Of course, there have. Whether it was Reagan, George Bush, The 1st., Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton, Bush, Jr., and even under Barry Obama. But Trump "The Chump" has taken this to the next 10 LEVELS, AT LEAST! And he and his corrupt administration are REVELING in this! Placing blame on OTHERS even though Trump and The Republicans control BOTH The House AND The Senate. There's even talk that Trump will stop what he's doing IF he gets his damn Wall funded. But I though you said it wasn't your fault, Donny? If this is true, it's truly DEPLORABLE. And if you wanna talk about "breaking the law." you might wanna look at his administration and the people that have ALREADY PLEAD GUILTY and the ones COOPERATING with The Mueller Investigation, and how his "boy" Paul Manafort was just sent BACK TO JAIL because he was screwing around with the witnesses. Also keep in mind that MLK was a "LAW-BREAKER". So was Rosa Parks and many others, fighting for WHAT'S RIGHT!! And they weren't colluding with Russia trying to take down our political system, even though they were accused of working with Communist Russia, back in the day.
There has been ALOT of talk in The Black Community and how we should respond to this. Talk has been divided, to say the least. Many say, "Why should we care? They didn't give a DAMN about us when WE are being MURDERED in cold blood walking down the street, or at a traffic stop? Or having the cops called on us for BBQing in the park, swimming in a community pool, or just EXISTING!" I sympathize with this. I see these Mexican children being torn from their parents and I'm angered. But I was also pissed of at the deaths of kids like Tamir Rice (Killed While Black and playing ALONE in a park with a TOY GUN) and of course, Trayvon Martin, MURDERED WHILE BLACK by that scumbag George Zimmerman while holding some Skittles and some Iced Tea. I "lost" alot of FB "friends" over my comments over Trayvon (and didn't give a fuck, either), but that's OK. After all, I was born an American Citizen and my family has been here for GENERATIONS, even when this country didn't consider my family or my people AS American citizens. I LOVE this crazy-ass country ( and I CRITICIZE IT and bitch about it when it is fucking up), but we can do waaaaay better than this. This has probably been the LONGEST POST I EVER have posted so I hope it didn't take too much time out of your hands.

Discuss if thou will...

WTF?! Raleigh runs Greensboro now?

This is a f&%kin outrage!

Who the Hell does The State Gov't think he/she is telling us who we can vote for and who's running OUR city?

Even Gov. McCrory hates this, especially since he was the Mayor of Charlotte.

And F&%K YOU Trudy Wade (write to her and complain) for sponsoring this disgrace!

People of Greensboro, we need to fight back this bullsh!t!!

Greensboro council says HB 263 redistricting is partisan and racist

GREENSBORO — Yvonne Johnson, the long-serving and popular councilwoman who served as Greensboro’s first black mayor, says she won’t run for re-election next year. “If they change the City Council districts and that stands, I’m not going to run again,” Johnson said Friday.
Johnson and other council members decried changes to the council made by House Bill 263, which the General Assembly passed on Thursday. Some argued on Friday that the changes were partisan — the council positions are nonpartisan — and designed to limit minority representation on the City Council.

The bill does away with at-large council seats like Johnson’s in favor of eight districts and a mayor who is voted on by the entire city. It also limits the mayors vote to ties and dramatically changes the council’s district lines.
If Johnson wanted to run, it would have to be in District 2, which is already represented by Jamal Fox.

Johnson, 72, said she has no desire to run against Fox, a 28-year-old at the beginning of his political career.
She said she doesn’t believe it was an accident that she and Fox were drawn into the same district.

With last month’s appointment of Justin Outling, the council now has four black members — the most in the city’s history. The new district map puts two of them in District 1 and two in District 2, meaning that they must face each other if they run for re-election and guaranteeing that two black incumbents will leave the council.
“When you look at a map where all four black City Council members are drawn into districts where they have to face each other, it’s not a coincidence,” Johnson said. “It smells of racism to me.”

Councilwoman Sharon Hightower, drawn into District 1 with Outling, agreed.
“It’s racism, and it’s partisanship,” she said.
Candidates do not run as Democrats or Republicans. The Republican majority in the General Assembly didn’t attempt to change that with the recent redistricting bill. It wouldn’t have been to their advantage to do so in a city with far more registered Democrats than registered Republicans.
But Hightower and others said the way the new districts are drawn was anything but nonpartisan.

Democratic Councilman Mike Barber is drawn into District 3 where he would have to face fellow Democratic Councilwoman Nancy Hoffmann. Barber couldn’t be reached for comment Friday. Hoffmann said she plans to run for re-election.
Councilwoman Marikay Abuzuaiter, also a Democrat, is drawn into a new District 8 that is significantly more conservative than her previous, city-at-large constituency. She plans to run for re-election.

Wilkins’ District 5 contains no incumbents.
Wilkins wasn’t available for an interview Friday but said in a written statement that he is leaning toward running again.
Mayor Nancy Vaughan said it should be hard for anyone to believe the new map wasn’t drawn with a political agenda.

“You double-bunk six sitting council members who are Democrats and you take a seventh and put them in what looks like a heavily Republican district,” Vaughan said. “You leave the only sitting Republican City Council member unscathed and take away the vote of the mayor, the only person who is elected by the entire city — I find it hard to justify that.”
The council will hold a special public hearing Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. to collect public input on what, if anything, the city should do about the changes.

Vaughan said she’ll meet with attorneys next week to consider a legal challenge to the new bill.
“In the last 24 hours I’ve heard overwhelmingly from people who want us to pursue all of our legal options,” Vaughan said. “There are very few people who are happy about this.”


This ain't over yet...

Looooong time...

My, how time flies.

I didn't realize it's been THIS LONG since I've written on my blog.

I'll try to be more active in the future.

There's been TOO MUCH SH!T going on (i.e. Baltimore, killer cops, etc.) not to sound off on.

RIP Ultimate Warrior...

Hard to believe that The Ultimate Warrior is dead.


The details aren't out there yet as to how and why, but it's still a damn that right after he was inducted into The WWE's Wrestling "Hall of Fame" that he goes. 

Here are the words to his his last WWE Raw appearance:

No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever. You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back I see many potential legends. Some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of the Ultimate Warrior will run forever!
—The Ultimate Warrior

He was gone less than 24 hours later...

Rest in peace, dude. You were one of the best...

This dude is relatively new on the scene, but he's important for the people who want to PROFIT off their invention in this day and age:

Lonnie Johnson

Recently, Lonnie won over $72,000,000.00 in a vertict over Hasbro for not paying him what he was due!

NEVER let ANYONE rip you off of your DREAMS!!
Remember him the next time you get into a water gun fight!

Lonnie Johnson

Lonnie Johnson - blackinventor.comYou don’t have to be a rocket scientist to come up with a great idea, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. For Lonnie Johnson, a lifetime of achievement and success at various levels on government and private sector projects could not prepare him for the success the he would ultimately achieve – by building a better squirt-gun.
Lonnie Johnson was born on October 6, 1949 in Mobile, Alabama. His father worked as a civilian driver at Brookley Air Force Base, and his mother was a homemaker who worked part time as a nurse’s aide. His father taught Robert and his brothers how to repair various household items, prompting the boys to create their own toys. The boys once made a go-kart out of household items and a lawn mower motor. Although his parents were excited about his interest in science and inventing, they weren’t prepared for the time he decided to experiment with a rocket fuel he created with sugar and saltpeter which exploded and burned up part of the kitchen. His talents were more refined when he attended Williamson High School and in 1968, as a senior, took part in a national science competition sponsored by the University of Alabama. There he displayed a remote controlled robot named “Linex” which he built from scraps found at a junkyard and parts of his brothers’ walkie-talkie and his sisters’ reel-to-reel tape recorder. He placed first in the competition and entered Tuskeegee University on a mathematics scholarship. At Tuskeegee he was elected into the Pi Tau Sigma National Engineering Honor Society and graduated with distinction in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He continued on at Tuskeegee and received a Master’s Degree in Nuclear Engineering in 1975. After graduation, he took a position at the Savannah River National Laboratory, conducting thermal analysis on plutonium fuel spheres. He later served as a research engineer, developing cooling systems at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Lonnie JohnsonHe then joined the Air Force and was assigned to the Air Force Weapons Laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he served as the Acting Chief of the Space Nuclear Power Safety Section. In 1973, he left the Air Force and took over as Senior Systems Engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. He worked on the Galileo Mission to Jupiter, but returned in 1982 to his military career. He worked at the Strategic Air Command (SAC) facility in Bellevue, Nebraska and then moved to the SAC Test and Evaluation Squadron at Edwards Air Force Base in Edwards, California where he worked on the Stealth Bomber. He also worked as Acting Chief at the Space Nuclear Power Safety Section of the Air Force Weapon Laboratory at Kirkland Air Force Base in New Mexico. A Captain, he was awarded the Air Force Achievement Medal and the Air Force Commendation Medal. In 1987, Johnson returned to his work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he worked on the Mars Observer project, and served as the fault protection engineer on the Saturn Cassini mission project. He later worked as a project engineer for the Kraft mission which studied asteroids.
Earlier, around 1982, he was working on developing a heat pump that would work by circulating water rather than expensive and environmentally unfriendly freon. In his basement at home, he took some tubing with a specially devised nozzle on the other end and connected it to a bathroom sink. When he turned on the faucet, a stream of water shot out of the nozzle across the room with such force that the air currents caused the curtain to move. His first thought was “this would make a great water gun.”
Johnson set out to develop a pressurized water gun that was safe enough for children to play with. Water guns at the time very unsophisticated and cheaply made, able to shoot streams of water about eight feet. Using basic tools, he combined a PVC pipe, a piece of plexiglas and an empty plastic soda bottle. His invention worked by partially filling a reservoir tank with water and then using a handle to force air into the chamber. When the trigger was pulled, the air pressure would force water to exit through a narrow hole, launching a blast of water more than 25 feet. He called his invention a “pneumatic water gun” and he continue revising it until it could shoot almost 50 feet. When he had developed a working model (which he called the Power Drencher), he and his partner Bruce D’Andrade began trying to market it while trying to secure a patent for it. They first tried to market it to Daisy Manufacturing, the BB Gun manufacturing giant, but no deal could be worked out after two years of negotiations. After securing the patent in 1991 (the toy was now called the Super Soaker), Johnson was introduced to Al Davis, an executive with Larimi Corp. at a New York City Toy Fair. Two weeks later Johnson was in Larimi’s headquarters in Philadelphia. The executives watching the demonstration all exclaimed “Wow!” Their only concern was whether anyone would pay $10.00 for a squirt gun. After signing a deal with Johnson’s company (Johnson Research and Development Co., Inc.) they would all be in for a big surprise.
Within a year, all involved knew they had a runaway hit. On the popular Tonight Show, host Johnny Carson used a Super Soaker to drench his sidekick Ed McMahon. Within 10 years more than 200 million Super Soakers had been sold. The gun had gone through many modifications and expansions, with new product lines, and became the toy of the decade. Johnson continued inventing and would eventually hold more than 80 patents. For his contributions to science (and in light of his great success with the Super Soaker) Johnson was inducted into the Inventor Hall of Fame in 2000. His company has continued to innovate, creating improved radon detectors, heat pumps and lithium battery products as well as new toy concepts. 

Lonnie Johnson didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to become a worldwide success…. but it sure gave him something to fall back upon.

Just because Black History Month is over doesn't mean that Black History is over.

To me, Black History is 24/7/365!!

More to come, count on it!
