I listened, with sadness and pride, to President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union Address. Presidents, off and on, since George Washington have delivered this address. I was beaming with pride because I am overall happy with President Obama’s accomplishments in…amazingly getting stuff done despite a Congress controlled by a political party that is dead-set against him.
I really lay into Ebony Magazine and conservatives (Hey, Reince Priebus!) for the hit job done on Ebony’s Senior Digital Media Editor, Jamilah Lamieux. The hit was done by the GOP, conservatives on Twitter, Raffi Williams, Ben Carson, and Ebony Magazine itself, sadly. I’m tired of blacks being silenced for calling out racism. And I say so.
Listen, I’ve worked for years on government systems and let me tell you, if America is going to freak out over every system not working that supports the government and its citizens, then nothing government-related would ever work. Are you kidding me? Do you people know nothing about system implementations?
Happy Friday! This week: “Scandal” is back for their 3rd season and the episode ended in typical “GASP!” fashion. A father disowns his daughter over her disowning her gay son. Christians in Congress need to stop claiming Jesus while engaged in a Federal government shutdown. As for the shutdown, I basically let Republicans know how they go stuck between a rock and a hard place. Enjoy!
Bottom line, crazy Tea Party conservatives: you don’t have to lie. Really. If you get found out, the damage of a lie is far worse than dealing with the truth head-on the first time. People will always respect the truth and the truth-teller. They grow to hate and despise the liar because eventually no one knows whether or not to believe your words or pathetic re-branding efforts.
Republicans are being pretty stupid right now. If they were acting intransigent for a good reason that they could actually articulate, I would listen to their side of the story. Right now, though? It’s just a bunch of whining and I’m sick of it. Dwight D. Eisenhower would fire on you with tanks if he could see what you’ve done to his party, GOP.
