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.

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…

Happy Boo Year 2017!

Hello fellow zobopians!  I know what you’re thinking, I haven’t posted in a long while.  Yeah!  Got it!  The President-elect election, celebrity deaths kinda gave me pause.  I had to process a lot of thoughts before blogging & posting.  I’m NOT moving to another country just because Donald Trump is going to be the U.S. President.  Nope!  I’m so happy to disappoint many a White Nationalist Socialist.

Let’s get to the nitty-gritty of this post, shall we?

Trump said he was going to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C.  Oh really?

The Swamp by Trump

The Swamp

But remember folks…the swamp was the collected USA fools who voted for Donald Trump in the White House!

Happy Fool Year!

People in America want everybody else to give Trump a chance?  You mean, like the way Germany gave Adolph Hitler a chance way back in the 20th century?

Happy Boo Year!

And don’t forget…

Swamp Thing

Donald Trump is the Swamp…

This is what we get from a “know-nothing-vulgarian”.

Until neXt time…

The Elitist Left & the Alt-Right: Throw them all under the bus

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Now that election hell-week is over I can now focus on other things about the future of humanity.  But first, let’s get to know the players I’ll be ranting about today.

Bill Ayers : an American elementary education theorist and a former leader in the counterculture movement who opposed US involvement in the Vietnam War.  He was also linked to President Barack Obama during his first term election.  I guess we can classify him as Leftist.(?)

Jeremiah Wright : a pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, with a congregation exceeding 6,000.

Steve Bannon : an American businessman and media executive. He is the executive chairman of Breitbart News, a far-right American news, opinion and commentary website noted for its connection to the alt-right.

Now that we know the players, let’s play “throw them all under the bus”!

Bill Ayers?  Yeah remember him?  He was the Left-wing radical who was accused of influencing President Obama during his heyday as a community organizer.  The right-wing nuts wanted Obama to throw him under a bus and disavow Ayers.

Reverend Wright was seen and heard saying, “God damn America” in a sermon.  President Obama & family used to go to this church long ago.  Of course when the video of this sermon went public, media critics basically expected Obama to throw Rev. Wright under a bus to distance himself from and disavow Wright.

Now let me just stop here…the two men above, (one white, the other Black), may have had influence on Obama or not.  It doesn’t matter because these two DID NOT get cabinet positions in the White House!  On the other hand…

…There’s Steve Bannon!  This Alt-Right freak once told Donald Trump, [“You got to remember, we’re Breitbart,” he told Trump. “We’re the knownothing vulgarians. So we’ve always got to be to the right of you on this.”]  This guy get’s a cabinet position next to President Trump so he can bend his ear to the alt-right!  NOPE!  The American media and it’s “woke” citizens need to make Trump throw this guy under the bus!  Trump should not be given a pass on this matter.

Mississippi “God Damn America” indeed!

Trump of All Evil?

4 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians!  I had something on my mind this month.  Can you guess what it is?  Yep, it’s Donald Trump!  Having a potential female President doesn’t scare me as much as having a President Trump in the White House.

The author Upton Sinclair once wrote in a story, (see picture below), titled “Root of All Evil” :

“A world conqueror had appeared in modern times.  Alexander [the great], [Julius] Caesar, Attila [the Hun], Genghis Khan, Napoleon -… when nine men out of ten would have said it was impossible.”

[Was Sinclair predicting the rise of Donald Trump?]

“A world conqueror has to be a man of few ideas, … a peculiar combination of exactly the right qualities, both good and bad – iron determination, irresistable energy, and no scruples of any sort, (…)  He has to understand the minds of other men, both foes and friends, and what greeds, fears, hates, jealousies will move them to action.  He must understand the mass minds, the ideals or delusions which sway it; (…)  He must believe in nothing but his own destiny, the glorified image of himself…”

Doesn’t it seem like Upton Sinclair was describing today’s Donald Trump?  Actually this story was originally written in 1942 about Adolf Hitler.  If America doesn’t root out evil, the future will moan and curse us for not acting!

All Aboard The Trump Train

Leave a comment

Oh, boy!  Hello fellow zobopians!  I’m sure you all know by now that Donald Trump is steaming toward the Republican nominee for the GOP.  But as it’s being projected, the Grand ‘Ol Party ain’t too grand about Donald Trump.  The GOP can’t seem to stop the train wreck of Mr. Trump.  Mr. Trump invites racist’s, sexist’s and homophobes to join the party train.  Nope, too late…the proverbial train has left the station.

Have you all seen the, (class war), movie called “Snowpiercer”?  It’s about a post-apocalyptic ice age that forces humanity’s last survivors to get aboard a globe-spanning supertrain. One man (Chris Evans) risk’s everything to lead a revolt for control of the engine and the future of the world.

snowpiercer

There are currently Republicans who don’t want to vote for Donald Trump but don’t want Hillary Clinton either.  What to do, what to do?  If conservatives thought that Ted Cruz was their only hope, then the GOP is gonna end up like the Death Star, (from Star Wars)…Boom!

In my opinion, I hope America won’t end up like the scenario of ‘Snowpiercer’.  But I think the party train of the USA is pretty much over now…

Until neXt time…

Two Tales Of One World

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Man, do I have a case of writers block.  What do I write about?  What can I rant about this time?  It’s 2016 and it’s yet another presidential election cycle and an alleged fascist is running for President of these ‘segregated’ United States!

…and there are still Black people dying in the streets every day – many of them unarmed and at the hands of the police.

…and then, there are still Black people dying in the streets every day – many of them unarmed and at the hands of other Black people.

Black people killed by the police get exposed by the light of day while Blacks killed by other Blacks get shrugged under the rug.

SILENCE STILL EQUALS DEATH!

Police Brutality-Then & Now

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Happy New Year if I didn’t say that last time. Wow…2015 was the year of Police Brutality. I wonder what 2016 will bring America. Police brutality seems to be the bane of America’s existence. Bayard Rustin, a citizen of the Civil Rights movement, once wrote about police brutality back in the 1960’s [Los Angeles Watts area]:

“Police brutality must be stopped! We must everywhere be part of the cry for civilian review boards, not in the naive belief that they are a panacea but in the conviction that police conduct is not the exclusive responsibility of commissions and politicians. Police must be answerable to the citizenry they presumably protect, and if they have been educated to any other concept of their role, now is the time to reeducate them.” Mr. Rustin wrote this back before I was born!

Mr Rustin also wrote:
“We must create a situation in which backlashers are politically neutralized by having to pay too high a price for the exercise of racist impulses.”

History truly has a way of repeating itself.

Until neXt time…

The Talented 10th Law Of Averages

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Wow!  It’s been a while since I wrote anything original.  At least I re-blogged.  Reading is fundamental, right?  Alright, time to get to the nitty gritty.

I’ve been thinking about Black America’s so-called “Talented 10th”.  If you know anything about William Edward Burghardt “W. E. B.” Du Bois, then you see where that term comes from.  It’s been over 100 years since Mr. Du Bois wrote about the Talented 10th or as it should be called nowadays is the “Black Talented”.  I would like to think after 100+ years we would have more than 10 percent of the Black population that’s considered ‘talented’.

If Du Bois called one part of Black America the ‘Talented 10th’, what was the other 90% called?  Would it be the “Least Talented”?  When I thought about this scenario, you realize that Affirmative Action is “only” for the Black Talented.  How does Affirmative Action help the Least Talented?  How the hell can 10% of the Black Talented up-lift the other 90% of a population?  This is where I started thinking about the Law of Averages.  [The law of averages is a layman’s term for a belief that the statistical distribution of outcomes among members of a small sample must reflect the distribution of outcomes across the population as a whole.]  I don’t see how a small part of Black America can help a greater portion beyond their own small talented numbers.

Consider this;  when Napoleon invaded Russia in 1812 he lost about 10% of his Grand Army.  And with that he lost that war!  I read some ago the reason he lost was because his Grande Army became demoralized after the loss of soldiers.  They probably had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) too.

Now, fast forward to now, the 21st century, and I keep hearing about how Black college students, the Black Talented (10th), having PTSD and other traumas due to white micro-aggression.  I think when it comes to the war on micro-aggression on Black students, I don’t see Black America winning a war against anything or anybody!

P.S.  Will the Talented 10th “pick at” dead people OR “pick up” where other people leave off?

P.S.S.  The Black Talented should never let anybody see them cry.  A.K.A. whiny crybabies.

O.K. that’s it for now…until neXt time…

White Flight Vs Future Majority

Hello fellow zobopians! Yeah, I know. I haven’t post an original blog post in a while. I’ve been re-blogging other posts by other bloggers. They were good reads I had to share. Thanks for reading!

I’ve been thinking about the concept of Black Americans becoming the “Future Majority” in the USA. I’m not all that excited about it. Think about it, if you are a social majority in America and “still” have no social power to show for it, what’s the point in bragging about it? It’s like the fact that Black Americans are a $1 trillion-a-year consumer spenders. What do we have to show for it? Where’s the “Black Power” at?

Food for thought right? Well, let me get to my stream of thought for today. I was thinking about what the “past” effects of white flight will have on the “future” Black Majority in America. Because of the social aversion of white flight, white people don’t want to live near Blacks; don’t want to go to school with Blacks; don’t want to play with Blacks; and when these white kids grow up to become adults, they won’t want to hire Blacks in employment. And that’s why there’s no DIVERSITY in corporate America and Silicon Valley. Duh!

This is what white flight and re-segregation has done and will do to the future majority of America. So, whether you like it or not, school integration, at least, is the best solution for the future of America. At least for us Black people…Damn!

Until neXt time…
