I hate Valentines Day


With a passion!

And I’m NOT alone!   To be fair, I struggle with any and all days that prompt me or obligate me to act or to do something on a particular day, Including Christmas,    I have Turkey all year round and I’ve had duck on Thanksgiving.

Somewhere today someone is being pressured to do something for their significant other.   Somewhere tonight there will be tears and resentment,separation and possibly divorce,because of this day.   The other three hundred sixty four days is meaningless.

I am a romantic man. I rarely miss a birthday and throughout the years  I have bought flowers, gifts, (Diamonds) just because.

Throughout the years I have been pressured, by friends, colleagues to participate in this manufactured holiday.    I have stood in long lines on V-day, at a drug store with other sad sacks, buying whatever that was available so there would be some semblance of peace when I got home.

   For years, a friend worked overtime, he bought nothing for himself, to buy his wife a New Mercedes SUV for her birthday.   Three weeks later, she was outraged!  She said, she was the only woman in her section who did not get anything on V-Day!  The couple fought for a week.

For those who love V-day carry on.   For me participating on this day is disingenuous and I will not participate.  There are some who might say.  This day symbolizes love and a gift is merely an extension of that  love you have for the that special person in your life.

If V-Day, is the only day my love and affection has value?  Bye Felicia!

Race and Harley Barber: She will be remembered for her Nigger rant


“Say it; forget it. Post it regret it.”

Social Media and the need to be noticed has ruined millions of lives.  Before social media we called a friend and ranted.  Today, I’m embarrassed for friends and family members who go online to vent and later get caught up in a storm when people disagree with their words.

In a need for attention, most people do not vet their friends online. To some, having  hundreds or thousands of freinds is prestigious.  To get 100 hundred likes on the picture they posted.   This has made it easier for employers and some unscupulous people to gain access to someones personal thoughts and actions .

A few years ago I was asked to check the backgrounds on prospective employers.  One particular man interviewed well he was one of the two men considered for the position.   I friended him on Facebook using a female name and using a picture I found on google.  With in a couple of hours I was one a many Fackbook freinds.

On his  timeline there were many pictures of females in swimsuites.   The  fifty something man, had several pictures of himself  kissing women ,some cases squeezing their breasts .  Needless to say he didn’t get the mid six figure job.

I’m far from perfect, as a divorced male, I have taken scary shirtless pictures  and posted  silly pictures social media.   Before I hit the enter button ,I think of how this picture would effect my children, wonder if I could I explain the picture to friends, or to an HR department.   I know once I hit enter my picture no longer belongs to me, it belongs to the Universe and those people who want to cut and paste it.

Monday January 15, 2018 (Martin Luther King Day)

 University of Alabama freshman and  Alpha Phi member Harley Barber  posted a couple video’s on  Instagram.  The first video was posted in the restroom of a  popular college bar. The second video was shot in the car of friends.  This is a edited version of the second video.

Ms Barber, like many on social media thought by creating a fake account only a few people would see it.   She and others should read up on the downfall on Anthony Weiner, who on two occasions thought he was sending picture to people who would NEVER share his photos.

Racist? Harley Barber vs President Donald Trump

A lot of people call her a racist based on her video.  I’m not so quick to make that leap.  No one has come forward and said they have heard Donald Trump call anyone nigger.   Yet we know he is racist.  Based on his actions (discrimination) and words.  He said a federal Judge couldn’t be partial because he was Mexican.  He has disparaged other races and religons and no one(so far  has come forward and said they have heard him say Nigger or negative word about another race.

While its been a long time, I remember being 17,18,19. and wanting to fit in.  She said “She didn’t care if was Martin Luther King Day, nigger, nigger, nigger.” “I’m in the south now bitch, so everyone can fuck off.”   What I hear is a lot of posturing.

Hold on!  I’m not giving her a pass! 

From what I’ve read, she trouble!  She was kicked out of Catholic School.  Her mother told the press ,she forced her daughter to move out last year because she is disrespectful. “ I made her move out in mid December 2016 due to her lack of respect for everyone and everything.”

So there she is in a new setting, finding her way.   In Marlton, New Jersey she may have had a bad bitch following.  However in  Tuscaloosa, Alabama she was just some freshman from somewhere New Jersey.   On Monday, she showed  her new friends (via Instagram) in Alabama she was a badass!    She could say nigger like them!

(Many people from the north and on the coast’s assume the south has racism on lock- I find they are just real about it.  On the coast’s one never knows) 

Grey

That little itty bitty video, that she thought would be seen by her group of friends was leaked.  Perhaps by someone who was offended by her words.  A person who has a black nephew, or cousin or close friend.

The world has changed in the last 50 years. The color lines are blurred.  That old white guy in the Black Lives Matter march has a black grandson who he concerned about.

Because of my dark skin, people assume that all my family members look like me.  My family is black, white, Latin, and Asian.  My children are bi-racial.  A racist of any hue may find me cold and unresponsive to their hatred and generalizations.

My former wife worked for an office where the majority of her colleagues used racist terms including nigger    She is less vocal than I. However in her own quiet way she was more effective.    She took various pictures of  me and the children and selected picture of her extended  black family and placed them on her desk.  The racial slurrs ended in the office.

Harley Barber’s Future 

The University of Alabama expelled her.  The Alpha Phi’s dropped her like a hot glass.  I dobut few of her sorority sisters are reaching out to her because she is tainted.  While she lives in an upper income community in New Jersey.  New Jersey isn’t Montana, over 30% of the state populations is people of color.  Ms Barber rant has tainted relationships. Family friendships with people of color.   People they know are questioning the parents racism. Are they?

At nineteen she doesn’t fully get it.  She doesn’t understand why there is such a BIG deal. In her mind, all African Americans call each other nigga.   Many of her white freinds call each other nigga. That’s the way people speak!   But in the next few months/years she will feel the full effect of her words.

Should she apply to another unversity and that institution googles her name.   When she applies for a job and where there  are African American she will wonder if they have seen the video.   If she applys for any significant job, and they do a background check. She will be the girl who said fuck niggers.

She has closed down her social media.and deleted the videos and yet video lives on.

“Say it; forget it. Post it regret it.”

The Aftermath

Not sure how this video/recording was attained.  Harley is having a converstation with someone (who could have recorded this) and sharing her story …its very interesting.

 

 There are more than 250 copies or her video’s with more than 20 million views.   This is superstar terrority.

Once more in small type

The Trump Administration says it will Sue to Stop Publication of the Book!

Steve Bannon Better Shut his Filty Mouth or he will get Sued!

   Sarah Huckabee Sanders is losing her pearls and her voice. She may come down with a mysterious aliment.

To distract us,A unhinged Trump may Tweet about somebodies Mama! 

If you work for Trump, he may take your cell phone!

The first excerpt of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House was released monday on Amazom.com  it was ranked #48,449 24 hours later it was #1 on the site’s best-selling book list.

The book is the first tell all about Trump White House and its anything but a snoozer. Its so juicy it has to be fattening.

Someone should expect a BIG box of chocolates from FBI Director Robert Mueller

On the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion with the Kremlin to get Trump elected, Steve Bannon predicted: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” He said that the investigation will focus on money laundering. “You realize where this is going,” Bannon said of the probe by special counsel Mueller. “This is all about money-laundering. “Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face,” he said. “It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit… The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that.”

Is it fake news? 

How did the author “Michael Wolff get the tea?

Donald Trump may have brought this one on himself.  DT’s lack of experience and not wanting to play by the rules, made it easy for Wolff.    

Shortly after Trump’s inauguration, Wolff says, he was able to take up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing” — an idea encouraged by the president himself. Because no one was in a position to either officially approve or formally deny such access, Wolff became “more a constant interloper than an invited guest.” There were no ground rules placed on his access, and he was required to make no promises about how he would report on what he witnessed.

Probably following the Presidents lead:  Sources would fail to set any parameters on the use of a conversation, or would provide accounts in confidence, only to subsequently share their views widely. And the president’s own views, private as well as public, were constantly shared by others.

The author chronicle the Trump administration from Election Day to October.  He has conducted more than 200 conversations and interviews over a period of 18 months with the president, most members of his senior staff, and  the many people to whom they in turn spoke.

  Waaaait One More!!!!

2018 isn’t kind to da Prez.  Yesterday, he shut down a White House commission he had charged with investigating voter fraud.   You remember, there was NO way Hillary had 3 million more votes!!    FRAUD!  he said , that’s what he said!

There were illegal voters and he the commission demanded the states turn over detailed voter data, including the names, addresses, birthdates, partial Social Security numbers, party affiliation, felon status and other data for every registered voter.     JEDI WARRIORS IN THE STATES REFUSED!  There were meetings and lawsuites. Lawsuites and Hearings.

Da Prez place the blame on the blue states .  But the Red Jedi Warriors pushed back as well.  The Jedi Warrior from Mississippi, Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said that when he received the data request, his response would be to tell the commission to “go jump in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tear down the mountains
Yell, scream and shout
You can say what you want
I’m not walkin’ out
Stop all the rivers
Push, strike, and kill
I’m not gonna leave you
There’s no way I will

And I am telling you, I’m not going

Its official, Doug Jones is the Senator from Alabama. 

 Roy Moore says no!   Voter,Voter Voter Fraud.   They have witness that have seen with there own eyes five busloads of African-Americans from Mississippi voted OR that three van loads of Mexicans (you know difficult it is to tell THEM apart)  voted in the election.He says claims that out-of-state residents had voted in the election and voters tried to cast more than one ballot.   

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, a Republican who supported Moore have all been vetted and all been cleared” by his office and “there was no fraud in those particular instances.”  In total, Merrill said his campaign had received just over 100 complaints, with 60 already adjudicated and 40 still under investigation.

Merrill also said his office tracked down one man who claimed in a video that he came from another state to vote and that the man was discovered to be an Alabama Rresident.

“Roy Moore took a polygraph and released the findings after the election

The results of the examination, confirmed he wasn’t a perv, a molester and didn’t  know, nor had he ever had any sexual contact with any of these individuals.”

There is no report provided from the polygraph administrator, no notes about how questions were asked or even who conducted it. There is much debate over accurate polygraph tests can be, anyway, and they aren’t admissible in court in most instances. But thanks buddy! 

He still struggles with math.  The age of his current wife when he started dating her.

Roy Moore lost by 21,924 votes.  Last week he sued the State of Alabama sighting Systematic Voter Fraud.  He complained that pervasive fraud had tainted the election, and that the Alabama authorities had inadequately investigated potential misconduct.He wants a new election.

“I have stood for the truth about God and the Constitution for the people of Alabama,” he said in a statement. “I have no regrets. To God be the glory.”

Everyone has moved on.   His supporter Donald Trump, the Alabama Republican party.  There are rumors he may run for Governor.

Gobble Gobble Gobble: Texas Congressman Joe Barton Say those are his giblets on social media but he may be a victim of revenge porn


Joe Barton, seen during a 2010 House committee hearing on the role of BP in the Deepwater Horizon Explosion and Oil Spill.

 

“Well Hello There” 

joe-barton-300x225

Elected in 1988 he is the most senior Representative in Texas, Dallas area constituents has seen a lot of Congressman Joe Barton in the last few days.   You don’t have to look hard, he’s everywhere on Social Media!  In the last few years he has sent several explicit pictures and messages to a women he was interested in .   Those pictures have made it on to the net.

Embarrassment 

 While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women. Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.

Before the grand Reveal?

This women who he was involved with( years before his divorce from his second wife) has received  many explicit photos, videos and messages from him throughout the years

Anger

A woman whom the Washington Post did not identify told the newspaper of Barton’s threat over the sexually explicit photographs, videos and messages he had sent to her. The woman described sexual encounters and contact extending over five years, beginning with her posting a message on Barton’s Facebook page in 2011.

She also shared with the Post a secretly recorded telephone conversation with Barton in 2015 in which he warned her against using the material “in a way that would negatively affect my career”.

Victim?

Texas Rep. Joe Barton may have been the victim of revenge porn, after an anonymous Twitter user posted explicit photos and texts of the longtime congressman.

In a statement Wednesday night, he said that he had suffered “a potential crime.” A Texas law, the so-called revenge pornography law, makes it a misdemeanor to intentionally publicize images or videos of someone’s genitals or sexual activity without consent.

 How many reports has there been on high profile or elected women sending pictures of their genitalia in the last five years? 

Zero

Zilch
