American Carnage…No More Thoughts and Prayers

Leave a comment

Our Congressional leaders need to.. #TakeAKnee! Yep.

Envisioning The American Dream

Mass Shootings in America no more thoughts and prayers Uncle Sam need to get off his knees and take action. Prayers are not a political policy. Sutherland Springs joins the much too long list of mass shootings in recent American history and as usual Congressional lawmakers alike rushed to send out their “thoughts and prayers” but continue to fail to act to end gun violence. Collage by Sally Edelstein

Saying prayers is not enough. Again.

Our Congressional leaders need to get up off their knees and do something about gun violence and ban assault rifles.

Offering prayers but failing to act to end gun violence make their prayers ring hollow.

We need to take meaningful legislative action that truly brings meaning to our prayers and make a consequential difference in the lives of Americans.

Here We Go Again

The routines are numbingly familiar by now.

Every time a mass shooting happens, lawmakers immediately offer “thoughts and prayers” as they…

When Will Girl’s Generation (SNSD) Disband for Good?

Leave a comment

It’s too many girls in this K-pop group! Right?

Stephen Diagram

Let me start by saying I am by no means asking that they break up anytime soon,

but they’ve been around for so long that its a discussion worth having,

especially since they’ve been on the decline since Jessica left the group.

With their recent release of Holiday Night to help celebrate their ten year anniversary, SNSD managed to reach number 2 on the South Korean Gaon Album Chart. Number 2 just isn’t in the blood for a group that used to completely dominate the South Korean music charts.

This begs the question of when will SM Entertainment finally pull the plug on the girls?

Tiffany is constantly under fire; when was the last time you saw someone bias Fany?

As for the solo careers: Tiffany, Jessica, Seohyun and Hyoyeon have been doing mediocre jobs at building hype around their lone music ventures.

Though I do personally love Taeyeon’s…

Immigration- RAISE Act or Race Act…You Decide

Leave a comment

The author Ishmael Reed would call this “RAISE act”, awarding whiteness.

Envisioning The American Dream

collage Lady Libert tears and welcome mat Once again Trump pulls up the welcome mat to the rest of the worlds with his callous attack on immigration. Donald Trump just doesn’t like the tired, the poor, and the huddled masses that the Statue of Liberty beckons.

Only In TrumpLand  does Lady Liberty lament : “Give me your xenophobes, your angry, your middle masses yearning to be free of those damn foreigners….”

Donald Trump has been busy recently taking up the case of oppressed white people  first going after affirmative action and now keeping out those darn foreigners by supporting the RAISE Act which would slash the number of immigrants admitted to the US while favoring those who spoke English and had certain education levels, and skills.

White Trash

Leave a comment

Food for thought in the era of *President* Trump.

The Daily Context

This is the second in a series of posts reviewing the NY Times’ 6 Books to Help Understand Trump’s Win. The first installment is here

Nancy Isenberg, White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America. New York: Penguin Books, 2016.

Nancy Isenberg’s White Trash uses class and the history of poor whites to reveal the lie at the heart of the American dream. Isenberg seeks to tell a story that “we as a people have trouble embracing: the pervasiveness of a class hierarchy in the United States” (xxviii-xxix). The continual presence of the poor “reveals an uneasy tension between what Americans are taught to think the country promises—the dream of upward social mobility—and the less appealing truth that class barriers almost invariably make that dream unobtainable” (xxvii-xxviii). Something, she argues, is rotten in the United States.

The Almighty GOP? Nope! Just Creeps now

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Well I guess it’s official.  Donald Trump has truly ruined the Almighty Republican party now.  (Actually I think tricky Richard Nixon ruined it back in the 1970’s with his CREEP fundraising organization).  Trump has released the Nationalist into the hen house.  Or maybe I should call it the sheep house.  People are sheep nowadays if they’re willing to bet their house and/or farm on a guy like Trump.  “Chumps for Trump” should be the motto.  There’s no saving the GOP now.  Even the sheep Republicans won’t even try to save it.  The GOP is the “Titantic” of political parties.  They will sink America as we know it!  (The Democratic party on the other hand is the “Apocalypse Now” of political parties).

Anyway, I think the below picture will illustrate how the 21st century Republican party are just creeps now.

Creepy GOP!

The GOP are just creeps now!

Until neXt time sheep people…

Looking For America? Corporate America Isn’t Looking For You.

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Long time no see, you know how I be. After the election of *President* Trump, I’ve been at a loss of words. Now that we all know what a “white backlash” looks and feels like, I guess I have some thoughts on the subject now.

Most white working class Americans voted for Donald “art of the deal” Trump because well, they think he’s actually good at the art of the deal. Just look at how *President* Trump has been acting. Corporate-minded fools like Trump think they can just treat government like a business.  You can’t!  In government there’s going to be push-back when you fire someone because of a lack of loyalty. But here’s the thing. You can’t expect cult of personality loyalty in government! That would be authoritarianism! But that’s what the white working class-less Americans got. And now all these white working class Americans are yelling and crying for their Affordable Care Act (ACA) healthcare plans. They just didn’t like that it was called “Obamacare”. Obamacare was just a nickname for the ACA. Same thing! Duh?

 

art saves lives

Looking for America – [art saves lives]

I’m sure most citizens also voted for Trump because they think he’s “going to bring jobs back”.  Right.  I guess these foolish Americans also think segregation is going to come back too.  [Don’t we already have that, again?]  Let me just state this loud and clear, “jobs are not coming back to America!”  Corporate America isn’t looking for you Americans!  This is why they want (cheap labor) immigrants.  Of course the U.S. companies claim they can’t find employees.  You can read their excuse.  [They ain’t looking for you fool!]  The corporate bosses don’t want you.  They don’t want to pay to train/re-train you.  Building a wall or stopping people from certain countries won’t stop corporate America from getting the cheap labor it wants.

Corp. USA

Get back to work training your replacement!

I guess it’s obvious now that the Almighty Globalization didn’t raise everyone’s boats.  It only lowered everyone’s wages.  U.S. business gets at least half the blame for all of this.  That means the other half of the blame falls on the rest of us for not adapting to the Almighty Third-Wave Economy.  Read that report here.

As you can see I’ve been thinking about this a long now.  It took me this long to finally get it out on blog.  I hope enough people read this because corporate America is looking.  Until neXt time…

Offensive Truth

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  I think people nowadays can’t handle or, in this era of “fake news”, don’t want to deal with the truth.  Speak the truth then you shall perish!  Yeah, that’s the world we’re living in now.  Everybody wants Free Speech without the consequences.  Everybody wants to rule the world…that’s from a ‘Tears For Fears’ song.

The offensive truth is everybody can’t have everything they want.  It’s TRUE!

If you shut down Free Speech, you get Fascism.

If you shut down Free Speech, you get Communism.

If you DON’T shut down Fascism, you LOSE Free Speech.

If you DON’T shut down Communism, you LOSE Free Speech.

Comprende conundrum?

Smash Fascism!

Fascism?

Smash Communism!

Communism?

…Until neXt time…

I Am Not Your Negro, A Review

Leave a comment

The Story of the Negro in America, is the story of America.

Whispers of a Womanist

James Baldwin’s “I am Not Your Negro” succeeds in bridging past and present racial truths earning them a much deserved place in contemporary conversation. One of the most troubling ideologies of contemporary culture is the belief that the turmoil afforded to black life, is isolated, or new. The films succeeds in drawing the necessary connection between current culture and a not so distant past of lynchings, beatings, poverty and murders.

The film takes the reader through time, engaging multiple perspectives and images that will surely engrave themselves into the viewer’s memory indefinitely. Although I have seen pictures of a dying Malcolm X on the stretcher countless times, something about seeing this photo last night caused a hot tear to run down my cheek. We all know that Malcolm is dead, the reminder somehow just seems as cruel as it is necessary. The film issues similar views of Dr. King, and Medgar…
