Let me see if I’ve got this straight: Simone Biles, the greatest gymnast of all time, with SIX gymnastic moves named after her, has to withdraw from the Olympics because the judges refuse to award her the points that she earned, to soothe the fragile egos of her competitors (and really the Caucasian Contagion). SheContinue reading “Too Good To Be Judged Fairly???”
I’m feeling some type of way this year. Don’t get me wrong…I am happy as a clam that Juneteenth is now a national holiday, even though I would have named it Emancipation Day, to be more accurate. I guess *some* people would rather not have an annual reminder that America once subjugated an entire raceContinue reading “Happy Juneteenth?”

They pitch a fitContinue reading “MLK Day 2021”
This SHOULD be the final word on the matter. Let’s make this go so viral that the Trumpians cannot possibly ignore it.
Assistant Chief Yogananda Pittman is named as Acting Chief of Capitol Police after Chief What’s-His-Name resigns after the Capitol Riot. This is my space, so I’m going to go ahead and say it: more people need to be fired, removed, and replaced for their open show of incompetence four days ago. Immediately. A lot ofContinue reading “More of This!”
If they’re going to impeach the Pig in Chief, then they need to stop debating, deliberating, and procrastinating about it. Just DO it!
