    WHO'S TO BLAME: Kanye Overload

    in Politics

    Issue:  I'm over Kanye West.  Who's to Blame? 


    With all the appearances of Yeezy in the news, I am sick of hearing his name.  He's rude, a bit crazy, and is THE biggest Kim Kardasian fan.  Whack!



    Is Kanye to blame?  Does he just seek too much exposure? 
    What about the media?  Are they giving him too much exposure?  Why?
    Is it because consumers love it?
    Or is Kanye suffering from mental illness?  I am serious.  Has anyone checked into that?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Vaccination Jitters

    in Politics

    Issue:  People don't want to immunize their children.  Who's to Blame? 


    Well the measles is back.  One kid with measles travels to Disneyland and you have some disasterous diseased results.  



    Should we Blame Andrew Wakefield the former doctor who conducted the "study" that linked autism to vaccinations? 
    Although, hip Hollywood starlets such as Jenny McCathry who want to be "natural" have been a big part of the antivaxx campaign. 
    And why shouldn't we trust our government and doctors (I can barely say that with a straight face)?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: MARRIAGE PROHIBITION

    in Politics

    Issue: The was a day no one in North Florida could get married.  Who's to Blame?


    Florida ended its gay marriage ban at midnight on Monday.  As a result, some clerks opened up shop early.  But fourteen counties, mostly in North Florida were hateful and wouldn't let anyone wed.   WTF?


    Should the gays be blamed?  I mean if they didn't want to get married, then straight people in North Florida would have been able to get married.


    What is motivating clerks to deny everyone the right to marriage to prevent gay marriages?  Is it religion or do they really just want to wait for the final ruling?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: CPAC Seriously?

    in Politics

    Issue:  CPAC is like one big conservative satire. I am pretty sure it is not real.  Who's to Blame? 


    Man CPAC always brings the laughs.   Conservatives candidates seem to be willing to make fools out of themselves there. This year an idiot speaker told a wife beating joke and another speaker rambled on about beatnicks with STDs being the greatest threat to man kind. And then there's the new shiny 22 year old barbie who is changing the definition of woman. 


    Is it the speakers and candidates who cannot be taken seriously ?


    Or is it the members of CPAC (the people who the candidates perform for) who are really the clowns? 


    And why do they even do polls; they are the punchline to the this whole comedy? 


    Let's face it, does anyone take conservatives seriously anymore?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Black Entertainment

    in Politics

    Issue: Black folks are not happy with our people's representation in entertainment.  Who's to Blame? 


    You know what?  I realized Black folks are still pretty unhappy with their representation in entertainment.  A few weeks ago when the Oscar contenders were announced, people felt Selma star David Oyelowo was snubbed because he didn't get a nomination for best actor.  Then in some Facebook blogging I learned that the new Fox show Empire, which has a black cast, is dangerous. Also, I've definitely seen folks call the show Blackish, coonery.   



    Is it because Blacks are under represented in Television and movies?  
    Do the networks and powers that be, just have a hard time creating Black characters that meet all Black folks' approval? 
    But seriously, is it even possible to please all black folks?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Homeowner Inequality

    in Politics

    Issue: Blacks probably shouldn't become homeowners. Who's to Blame?


    Are Blacks burdened by historical factors, such as decades of discrimination, when it comes to owning a home?  I find it no surprise that homes in Black neighborhoods are worth less, cause it's racial!


    Are Blacks to Blame for their own home depreciation? Blacks can afford to integrate into more diverse neighborhoods.  But the whitest neighborhoods have the greatest value, allegedly.


    Should anyone put money into a home?  Seriously, is it worth it?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Rape Retraction

    in Politics

    Issue:  A rape may have or may not have occured.  Who's to Blame?


    As you may know Rolling Stones has recently come under fire for writing a story titled a A Rape on Campus.  It has come to light that the publication engaged in some shotty journalism.  Jackie, a woman highlighted in the story, has recently come under fire for her story.  Now we don't know if a rape occured or not, Who's to Blame?


    Is the publication to Blame for it's shotty journalism? 


    Do you victim Blame, because she didn't go through legal channels to prosecute her rape?


    Should we Blame the fraternity for casting doubt on her story?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: ANTI NATIONALIST

    in Politics

    ISSUE:  I along with many others no longer trust the State.  Who's to Blame?


    Blame:


    1. Did I become an anarchist?


    2. Is it because WE THE PEOPLE rectally raped innocent people?


    3.  Is it because our law enforcement can just shoot you dead and say they feared for their life?


    4.  Is it just part of growing up?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Riotous Reasons

    in Politics

    Issue: The people are riotous, who's to Blame? 


    It has been almost five months since the death of Michael Brown.  Darren Wilson, the police officer who fired the fatal shot, dodged a grand jury indictment last week.   The people tried to burn Ferguson to the ground.  Why?



    Did they destroy businesses because they wanted an excuse to steal Jordans??
    Did they damage property because they are violent by nature?
    Did they burn police cars because it is not fair that police can kill Blacks without consequense? 
    Did they riot it because the media told them to?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: ELECTION APATHY

    in Politics

    November 4  was election day.  Although there were some decent candidates, we have elected in some idiots.  Who's to Blame?


    Can we blame the apathetic voter?  What about non voters who are doing it to protest the system?


    I love Blaming the Kochs.  Can we blame them and SuperPACs like them?


    What about the candidates?  Who else is tired of lackluster democrats or batshit far right republicans?

    WHO'S TO BLAME: Pipeline Dreams

    in Politics

    Issue:  The United States does not need the Keystone XL pipeline.  Who's to Blame?


    This pipeline is the bain of our existence.  It infected our politics during this month's elections and some people fell for it.   There are a number of reasons the pipeline should not be approved.   Frankly, I don't know why we are still discussing it.  Join me as I do a little pipeline bashing.


    Do you think this pipeline should be approved?  Why? 


    Do you hate the pipeline as much as me?  I get it if you do.
