My thoughts on the top--and not so top--stories in this week's political, sports, and pop culture news.
"She’s an election denier, which is basically a Flat-Earther with political donors."--brilliant phrase--I'm going to quote this all over the place. Thanks
Regarding Cameron Bure, I always laugh when people say “Anyone who knows me, knows (ie I am not a homophobic, racist, flat earth, Nazi)”….yet they never seem to bring a friend with them to actually prove that point.
Regarding raising the voting age, only wish the Dems had a Fox News propaganda machine to keep pounding that one off proposal home to get the young folks crazy much the way the right works.
It had been my fear since 2016 that Trump and his acolytes had so desensitized people with their outrages as to normalize behavior that used to be disqualifying for politicians and other public actors. This is still a concern, but the recent elections suggest that people outside Trump’s lunatic base (which of course is still disturbingly large) may have finally reached their limits of tolerance.
Kareem, Thanks for sharing that voice that beautiful voice of Samara joy. It was like listening to Silk she was so smooth and so Emotional, she had so much expression in her voice. It is absolutely incredible that she is only 22 I'm so looking forward to hearing her more and I will definitely buy her album thank you again.
Kari and Candace have received more ink than they deserve, so I’ll keep it short. Why do we care if Kari concedes? To concede, empties her tank, leaving her with nothing! IGNORE HER!
Holier than thou, Candace Bure, supported Lori Loughlin (College Scam & JAIL). She left Hallmark, after they refused to cast Lori in shows. I went to GAC Family to get away from Candace. Last week, she showed up over there. DAMN!
Kareem, these gals are great at flipping the script. Attention seekers! Candace says, “We need Christmas more than ever.” Her rude, condescending, shameful comments re: “traditional marriage,” has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas! She forgets, Mary and Joseph weren’t married.
What a great ending. Samara Joy. Wonderful to listen to such a talent. Such a mature interpretation of a great song. Such an absolutely great voice.
The repubs were greatly mistaken by all their loud pronouncements that Gen Z wouldn't vote. A funny tweet day after the election: "Gen Z would rather crawl over hot coals to vote than answer a phone call from an unknown number." So because there was no red sweep they want to change the voting age which describes perfectly the maturity level of the cry babies.
The Robert E Lee quote about painful discipline being necessary for their instruction as a race. How obscene. Such arrogance. And yet there are many today who believe and act in this manner, whether It's overt racism, hatred/fear of the other, etc. A report this AM from Livermore CA after the shooting at the club in Colorado Springs. One writer said being LGBTQ+ is hard. The Catholic deacon responded by writing "being gravely disordered shouldn't be a piece of cake." Of course the diocese fell all over themselves disavowing this statement.
And Kari Lake, CC Bure. Oh brother. Forget both of them. Pretty faces can hide ugly souls. Boycott the network, and don't buy anything from CCB's clothing line. And as to KL, may she be forgotten forever.
Thank you Kareem for your insights. Keeps us thinking.
Trump and all his clones quite simply have touched on a common psychological ploy.Appeal to the millions of men and women who lack maturation.These are non-adults in physically mature bodies feigning adulthood.We know better.We are better than that.
Samara Joy is clear as crystal.
I found out today that one of my favorite singers, Roberta Flack, is suffering from ALS, and can no longer speak, let alone sing. I find it a great comfort to hear Ms Joy's marvelous talent. We need more young ones like her to carry on the legacy that those who are passing leave for them.
Off to listen to more Samara Joy. Thank you!
Such a melodious voice. Her rendition closely matches that of "the girlfriend" Nancy Wilson.
Errol Samuels, Tallahassee Florida.
Any thoughts on the recent Jalen Brown controversies? I'm shocked that players who lead the players union apparently have no idea of how their actions and words can impact communities and both him and Kyrie seem willfully ignorant at this point.
Design of writing. Please change. Your recent layouts were 'busy', the bold headlines are like shouting at us, mixing of fonts confuse the reader...Your other versions of layout worked. Why change?
Well stated, spot on.
I hope Bure sees your commentary. I think there might be special opportunity to be constructive there.
I appreciate your calling out Lake. I hope lots of people notice.
The scripture quote from Mark on the food companies? LOL!
And might be a hint at further dealing with Lake types---calling them out on moral grounds.
Hi, sir, I miss when you did longer cultural suggestion blog posts. Will they ever return?
