Celebrating Jenean Hampton’s Historic Victory

Didn’t hear a lot about this but it is noteworthy. Jenean Hampton is the first black person to win a statewide office in Kentucky. This is history and it should be acknowleged and celebrated.

The View mocks Carly Fiorina’s looks…fair game or just mean?

The women at The View were indignant when Donald Trump took a swipe at Carly Fiorina’s looks, but why do they reserve the right to mock her? Look at the clip and share your thoughts.

Student threatens teacher with a desk…is this what is going on in the classroom?

Last week the nation was in shock when we watched a resource officer drag a South Carolina girl across the room. This morning a friend of mine sent me this clip. This is equally appalling. Share your thoughts.

Do we even need debates?

The GOP contenders are meeting today to discuss last week’s debates. They want more Republicans at the moderator table. They believe that the liberals control the microphones and they in fact control the agenda. Funny thing is the candidates both Democrats and Republicans don’t answer the questions anyway. They simply use the questions as an intro into their talking points. What do we actually learn from these televised events? Is it simply entertainment? Share your thoughts.

Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio is like Marlo and Prop Joe of The Wire

When i watched Jeb Bush try to take on marco Rubio I thought of this clip. Watch and share your thoughts.

What’s with all the Halle Berry hating?

Halle Berry is beautiful. She is an Oscar award-winning star but, she seems to be unlucky in love. That’s bad enough but over the past two days I have seen and heard a lot Halle hating. I even saw a headline that asked “What is wrong with her?” Why does there have to be something wrong with her? Maybe the real question is what’s wrong with them? Why is she in the wrong? It is sad to see this almost gleeful response to the end of a marriage or the attitude that she somehow deserves heartache.

Context..What context could explain a cop dragging a student across the room?

Student refuses to leave room. So officer decides to remove her. This is simply wrong. Nothing this girl could have said would justify this action. Share your thoughts.

Is Katina Powell proof positive that shame has died?

I watched this clip and I was astounded to hear Katina Powell speak so casually about pimping her daughters out. She has written a book about her relationship to the Louisville Cardinals. She supplied the women who were used to help close the deal with the college recruits. This is not shocking. It probably happens on more campuses then we will ever know, but to see a woman speak like this is the shocker. What happened to shame? When did it die? She and her daughters will be appearing on The View tomorrow to share their story. Over the years we have seen the media take a quick descent to the bottom, and bottom feeders are now welcome to share their tales withe the world. We saw this with the Tiger Wood debacle. We saw women line up for their opportunity at the microphone. They all told of their antics with Woods. The media elevated them. They were no longer women who knowingly slept with a married man. They were victims. They bore no shame, but Woods was the villian. Shame no longer exists. Do as you please and if you can sell your story fame although it might be temporary awaits you.

Jeb Bush is choking on his Silver Spoon

Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth has its benefits. In short you have unearned benefits that give you immediate status. It opens doors for you. In short it makes your life easier than working class mortals. Mortals learn how to speak up for their
selves. They learn how to give a punch and take a punch. People who are successful in business also learn how to fight because they have to fight. That’s the difference between Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. Trump also had the benefit of a pedigree but he knows how to fight. He is a product of the Fight Club rules of order. Bush is a Roberts Rules of Order guy. Trump’s rules allow the fighter to hit below the belt. Bush’s rules work when both parties have committed to a gentlemanly skirmish. Trump talked about Bush’s wife. That should have been enough for Bush to ditch the rule book, but Bush did not go off the rails until Trump started taking potshots at W. Finally Bush seems like he is going to be a reluctant fighter, but is it too late? Silver spoons have their perks but they also can make you soft.
