This Made My Night

The past couple of months has not been a laughing matter when it comes to the Oval Office and Congress. The individual that is now our President has been pathetic. But last night I have to admit Stephen Colbert had me laughing until I was crying with silliness. 

His reading of tweets (by Stephen Corbert.  ) by independent journalist Jared Yates Sexton is priceless. I thank Mr. Colbert and Mr. Sexton for this humor. I needed that in wake of these events. Above are the tweets and the link in regards to Stephen reading the tweets are in my profile. 

Enjoy.

The Age of Men/Babies

I don’t understand my Brothers of all shades (especially the men with wealth) when it comes to relationships coming to an end. 
Actually I do, you never grew up…Your parents sheltered you your whole life and never allowed you to fail and learn from the pain.
Yes we’re get burnt…yes we get burnt; but to demean your ex via social media or worse harm them physically? This is the some childish, psychotic Bullshit. Take it from a guy that has been dumped and nope it feels like shit but in the end I did some self reflection and let’s face it, sometimes we go into a relationship expecting more…Sometimes the person was never into you and you end up getting used. He’s the thing Brothers… That’s life. It may not be fair but who ever told us life was “fair”. You learn from your mistakes, lick your wounds and keep it moving. 

In the end if we’re honest with ourselves 80% of the time we knew not to enter into certain relationships, deal with certain individuals. 
Dude what the hell? You come from money. You could have traveled, went to a resort and just chilled. Hell, got with another person, even if it was just sexual. But you chose the immature/punk-ass where out. I wish I had your loot. Most of these “celebrities” are 4 cans shy of a six-pack. 
Stupid.

Chaos and Denial are the Top Drugs in America

From his dumb/mindless tweets to his lack of knowledge of anything pertaining to our government and World Events…why does news organizations keep covering this individual? The quick answer is “We have to cover him because he’s the Leader of the Free World”. Really?
He’s not “News Worthy” and the news media knows it. This man cares nothing about America and the news media knows it. At first the GOP was afraid of Trump and his way of living but now they’ve embraced it because it’s serving their purpose. In the end Trump is making the Republicans, cable news, lobbyists, corporations big money and you know who’s on the losing end? You already know the answer. 
Last August an article was published by Michael Rosenblum, “Donald Trump Will Be Elected” (Huffington Post) and it mapped it out but no one paid attention. One thing I know with today’s human nature, many Americans love unnecessary drama. Actions speak louder than words. We say with out mouths we hate mindless television and yet “reality shows” continue to have the highest ratings. Remember when The Travel Channel, The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, The History Channel had substance, quality shows? It used to be a time when I could at least enjoy political shows but now those have been “dumbed” down so much because of this individual in office. It’s to a point now where if he goes one day without being an idiot he’s praised and the commentators say he looked “Presidential”. 
Sigh. 
Unless you seek out intelligence you can forget it because it’s sure not coming to you.
The days of quality television are long gone and is never coming back. 
Bill Maher hit the nail on the head with his recent “New Rules: Make Summer Great Again” in regards to how we had the Summer to rest our minds from serious topics but those days are no longer among us; and Dave Chappelle said something that hit me like a ton of bricks, sitting down and reading a book. I’m guilty of this, I haven’t done this in a long time. I’ve lost my way to get back to educating my mind and soul. This is on me and I can’t put the blame on anyone else. 

In the end it’s up to us, individuals to stay on point. I’m not burying my head in the sand in regards to Trump but sad to say this has to run its course because until people realize that their is no longer a “Middle Class” and only the “Haves” and “Have Nuts”, until Rural Americans understand that Trump and this GOP doesn’t care about their well being, this will continue. 
I’ve been hard on myself the past couple of months because I haven’t blogged on this subject but it just hit me? There’s nothing more to say on this matter. Some people drug of choice is “Chaos” and “Denial”.
