This Stuff Right Here…

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on October 19, 2018 at 5:29 am
surprise

Yes, THIS.  😀

There’s so much to say, let’s wrap this up quick:
I suppose we could start on the VOTING Tip.

Make plans now to get out and vote on November 6.
Democrats are the choice if you’re concerned about care when you’re sick.

Our Republican friends
want the ACA to end.

Repealing the Affordable Care Act will take us back to the begin
when pre-existing conditions kept sick folks from getting in

on an insurance plan that they could possibly afford.
Mitch says if Dems don’t win —  healthcare repeal efforts will soar.

Hm. I just wanted to start out with that little bit. Please marinate on it and vote.
Don’t just turn out to the polls by yourself but bring your beloved kinfolk.

Voter suppression is real.
Be sure to turn out to let the governing body know how you feel.

This country is being divided-up on purpose. Let us recognize and heal.
It’s Friday, my usual get-live day, yet I want to talk about This Stuff Right Here.

I want to talk about you and me.
Where we are and where we want to be.
Tell me.

Please don’t fall victim to thinking that your vote won’t make a difference.
Ask Big 44. It matters so much, he made a few mentions:

.

YOU MATTER and regardless of your message I want to hear from you.
I will understand you loud and clear after the tallied totals come through.

Dear beloved Americans: regardless of our differences, I am counting on you.
We didn’t see eye-to-eye in 2016; let’s unite on the white between the red and the blue:

The topic of  America’s position on human rights at this time — is dark and lousy.
The prez debates while he waits on reports from the Turkish – Consulate, Saudi.

A WaPo journalist’s life has been brutally lost.
But a big contract from Saudi could be an adequate cost?

I paraphrased but didn’t make up the intended sentiment.
The price of getting away with murder is enough money being spent.

It’s nothing new that true history has not previously fed —
It’s just quite remarkable that it’s what the sitting prez said.

Yes-Yes! This Stuff Right Here is a sum that I could not make up.
If I did you’d cry fiction and tell me to wake the crux up.

I’m awake. Are you?
Let your intentions be true.

I need you to come through, to be encouraged with no fear.
I’m Qui
Imploring you to read up on the VOTE, and go to the polls
to change-up This Stuff Right Here.

Learn & Laugh, a little:

Babies Don’t Read

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on October 15, 2018 at 5:00 am

Dangerous-Curve-Ahead-Sign.gifBabies don’t read but they certainly are teachable.
A fresh mind is moldable whereas, an old one is not reachable.

When simply asked ‘can you read,’
the U. S. prez said — (NOT A DAMN THING).

He isn’t well read.
No recollection was in his head.

He is not a baby and new life isn’t here before us to unfold.
Call a weak mind a horrible find; especially when the dog is old.

God bless America’s old soul, her new soul needs salvation.
Confessing a love for dictators and such is not a healthy relation.

And what about our nation? Are we to fend for ourselves?
Somebody wake the neighbors up! Our union isn’t feeling well.

No new hope is being shaped and no new tricks are being divvied.
Our international status is a wee bit ratchet— with every new day we look a little more silly.

The stock market is not an actual tell. Global money is not yours.
Your money comes from your local job and you spend it at a local store.

So when the stock market rises do you really score?
However, if she fails, your finances are impaled and then you get a little sore.

elephant-sit-on-car.gif

Crippling…

Right? Remember what lead us to the collapse in 2008?
Well there’s another elephant sitting on your plate
and with your finances and security — he’d much like to play.

Can’t you see the writing on the wall? Are you comprehending this Griot feed?
If only you could – I wish you would. Unless you’re a baby — and Babies Can’t Read.

And if you are a big baby, anytime is a good time to grow up.
It’s Monday beloved, give this day a hug and start inserting in it more love.

First love for yourself and then for others.
Be mindful to extend it to your sisters and brothers; your father and mother.

Respect is the human baseline.
Utilize respect and you’ll be fine.

Read inspirational writes daily and do pray often
that God keep your mind sharp and your heart softened.

Babies Can’t Read but you’re much sharper than that.
A well-balanced lifestyle keeps your mind from getting fat.

Good morning Monday, you caught me mid-topic,
I’m Qui
and illiteracy is real! Barbara Bush couldn’t stop it.

Educate your soul and go out & vote — because only Babies Don’t Read.
That’s not you nor me. History is best born out of unity and DEMOCRACY.

The change is still up to you and me.

Yes-Yes! We are blessed with another weekend!
An opportunity for me to do my thing and SHE binge.

I’ve got a script to clean up and shoot.
Pardon me, not just one but two. This is what I do.

I ain’t studying them dudes on that committee
who are enraged, creating a farce of a stage – I’ve got God with me.

And you don’t have to believe in Him. I do. He’s the highest clout.
Come midterms enjoy the binders of women who will vote you out.

bell-toll-grim-reaperOh, and to those women on the committee who may vote Bart in,
It’s good to know Your Name and Faces when we recall the sin.

We’re coming for you, too via the polls in the end.
I love you, I do – but you’re no help old girlfriend.

We are women facing another weekend.
Literally, I’m taking it all in.
I suppose the “girl hate” didn’t dissipate at Hillary’s end…

That’s too bad. Personally, I need women.
When will Beyonce’s Formation request kick-In?

Ladies, If Bart O’ Kavanaugh gets in by tomorrow,
womens reproductive rights will be an issue of sorrow.

Don’t fall prey to this; do not choke.

It’s the weekend ladies. Are you going out to march?

The One Who Smelled it Dealt it

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on October 3, 2018 at 5:35 am
farting.gif

Unbearable.

I remember that saying from the early days of being a child.
It was the going-response when a foul smell was on the prowl.

The phrase was used to halt suspicion; a verbal deflection from the smell emitter.
Still, it didn’t deter the gas that came to pass; farters aren’t quitters.

But farters are the ones who deal the gas,
then they announce the funk followed by a weak laugh.

The laugh ends with them saying, “It wasn’t me.”
To farters, the attempt to deflect is always key.

The air is assaulted and all of their peers realize quick–
It’s so obvious that the one who smelled it dealt it.

This phrase is re-emerging and I am not a child.
Kavanaugh assaulting women and being offended at the recollection is wild.
He cries foul.

Any chance that you saw SNL?
Matt Damon to the coffin was the nail:

The prez bragged about grabbing women by the “P,”
then defends Kavanaugh’s innocence; wanting me to believe.

He’s crying foul for the farting child because he smells a lot like him.
If the Judiciary man-pack can’t see past their scrotum sacks
our justice system is gravely grim.

Are you still praying to God for a situational hem? I am.
Because when it comes to respecting women, America doesn’t give a damn.

They” are not alone in their actions, take a look around the world.
A lying male child is worth your while; to hell with an honest girl.

Do I take it personally? Yes, I do, just a little bit.
I’m like Janet Jackson – cock-eyed biases make me sick.

Get this right America, or that smell will lay claim to your ass,
I’m Qui
and America’s lack of wisdom is comparable to dirty-booty gas.

You think respecting women equally will unleash some kind of hell?
Consider that more women are voting for women to avoid sack smell.

Good Morning Monday

Buckle up.

Good morning baby. Did you rest well?
The Judiciary hearing is on pause for a brief investigation swell.

It’s true. Unfortunately, I’m not kidding.
I thought Brett would get the point and by the weekend be quitting.

But that was not a marker that was within his scope.
Our institution is resilient; I won’t lose hope.

Good morning baby. Would you like a cup of jo?
Let’s sit and spit about The Global Citizen Festival, yo.

Did you see it? It went on forever.
It’s events like that that positions NY as especially clever.

The dimensional message and the music were true;
the crowd was composed of intellects who push through.

If you saw the event did you note just how chill
the audience was? They listened and stood still.

You heard Janet Jackson say that she was repulsed and showed no nipple or grin
when she referenced the way that our country is treating and disregarding women.

Good morning baby. What have you got up for the week?
You’re thinking about checking your voter’s registration as I speak?

That’s what’s up.
I bid you a prosperous Monday with lots of hugs and fun.

Human interaction. We all need some,
I’m Qui
Good morning baby. Would you prefer coffee or the human touch yum?

Today, go for them both.
And I’ll meet you in the middle, yo!’

What’s This About

Depending on which Humpty you reference in mind
he is preceded by either a rap or a nursery rhyme.

Both are in our history of stunts,
though I am referencing to the mid-week hump.

And the Humpty-Hump would be a good song for this day,
lest we are all about work and with no thought of play.

Don’t let that be your tempo; that beat gets old.
Jam the Humpty-Hump and free your soul

of any excess seriousness that may be about you.
Are you at work? Is there a co-worker you want to hurt?
Please let silliness find you:

I’m taking nothing too serious during this hem and haw
that is the Judicial Committee hearing for Kavanaugh.

Ain’t nobody got time for that, really.
The president spoke at the UN yesterday and sounded silly.

He and Kavanaugh have been known to lie on their willy’s.
But to say he’s doing America any favors, at the UN sounded silly.

Life is more interesting when you’re on the ‘uphill.’ See?
Uphill for the usual and the dutiful — who are you and me.

There is no job interview in the world that you can go to,
with allegations or a bad reference and still, make it through.

If indeed Kavanaugh moves on to the Supreme Court
America is going to be a wee bit short

on respect.
‘Like we don’t have enough stress around our neck.

Okay, three branches of government… who’s going to keep check?
America the beautiful, please don’t settle for feck.

Mid-way through the work week, tomorrow is coming.

Let wisdom guide thee, because foolishness is gunning.

Good Morning Humpty. I see you on that wall.
I’m encouraged to VOTE so that the yoke will stall.

Monday’s Start

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on September 24, 2018 at 7:48 am

happy-monday-cats-washing-clothesSo we pick back up from last week.
I love Mondays. A good start is key.

I went to bed early and got up relatively late.
I have quite a bit of production pending on my plate.

How are you, sweetheart? And what have you got up today?
I’ve got shot editing first.. later on, I intend to play.

Work is a necessity. What’s life if it’s not productive?
As far as it goes for folk with self-esteem lows –
Lift up! Tell the lows to ‘suck-it.

Folk who are not high on life will be a drag on you.
On this Monday’s Start avoid all lows in your view.

Life is new again! I’m in it for the lovin.’
I’ve been working Premier Pro and FCPX like it ain’t nothin.’

These are film editing tools that I use;
my knowledge capacity is experiencing a boom!
You should see what I’m doing in Photoshop and Lightroom.
I’m on the uptake! Vroom-vroom! Vroom-vroom!

Today will be a productive party and I will duly play.
I won’t be out in the streets dear sweet, but in the editing bay.

Shout-out to BIG LEO! Thanks for stopping by and ruling the spotlight.
Big Leo is a distinguished man, an Intel friend whose DNA is reel-nice.

I shot a silent film this weekend; there were no words.
Big Leo came in with eyebrows and grins
allowing scripted intentions to be heard.

Thank you for that!
I do love those Leo cats!

I may be a wee bit bias in my heart –
I, too am a Leo and I love a good Monday’s Start.

Today will find me editing footage and framing a view.
Today will also find me watching, thinking and writing about you.

I’m an observative soul; it’s what I do.
I see that the Kavanaugh’s situation is still on the brew.

God bless the man who disrespects and chooses not to recall.
A woman here, a woman there — Kavanaugh’s confirmation is on the stall.

I’m sure it’s an unsettling feeling to be in his position.
The same should be said for the women forced to come forward to mention…

Keep in mind
that justice is just acting blind.

And that’s fine because incivility is nothing new; society plays its part.
The truth won’t be buried, so let us not be in too much of a hurry
on this revealing Monday’s Start.

Above all, be mindful and productive and melee won’t be able to find you.
I’m Qui
Good Morning to thee, let goodness and truth be the force that binds you.

Today is a great day to play it smart.
Opportunity abounds in every Monday’s Start.
Play your part.

NEWS PERUSE – What Happened in High School

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 17, 2018 at 6:52 am

handsy-fella.jpg

Well hello, dear Monday! Where have you been?
Congress seems on par for letting Kavanaugh in.

But not one recollective minute before —
we hear the watermarks of Christine Blasey-Ford.

When Christine and Brett Kavanaugh were in high school,
she alleges that Bret attempted to rape her; life uncool.

She’s talking in detail and laying it on the line.
Christine delivered her written account to Diane Feinstein.

That was in July.
Kavanaugh’s life to Christine is a lie.

Many women are empathetic to Christine and her watermarked view.
Unfortunately, when I was in high school, it happened to me too.

It was lunch break and I hopped a ride with a male classmate
who was pretty good looking, popular and in no need of a date.

I was popular too – a writer, rapper, and drill team dancer.
After returning to campus from lunch – he became a creepy chancer.

In his savvy sports car, he locked the doors
and unzipped his pants for a “girl-handy” score.

I asked what he was doing and to please unlock the door.
I asked him thrice, but he wasn’t listening anymore.

He was in pursuit to get me to touch his lap,
instead, I balled up my fist and give his lip a bap!

He hit me back and we begin to fight inside of his two-seater.
He struggled to unlock my door after a few minutes of me being “the beater.”

I ran inside of the school and at the first pay phone, I called my dad.
He told me to report it to the office unless I already had.

I went to the office; I was just 16 and in the 11th grade
and the female principle didn’t believe what I had to say.

She blamed me for being good looking and dressing nice,
and implied that I wanted “it” and that next time I’ll think twice.

Good Lord! Her brutal summation wasn’t right, and she seemed so mad.
The female principle gave me a pass to get over this and on to class.

I did go to class, but the feelings of being a prey did not stop.
About 30-minutes later, I hear my dad going-at-it with the cops.

Dad left his job after I hung up and came straight to my high school.
Campus monitors allowed him site access because he was a cool dude.

Dad inquired about the male student’s name that I had told him about.
They pointed my dad to his class and dad asked the student to come out.

The male student did.
That’s when I heard the cops trying to corral my dad’s wig.

The noise rang out from the corridors; rage was the pressing margin.
The cops came to my class and asked me if I’d like to press charges?

The attempt to rape a child is not a passe thing,
especially since the male classmate was already 18.

The scene got real serious; dad, the cops and the boy were standing by.
I was told to repeat the incident minute-by-minute, miss nothing, and don’t lie.

I did. I retold the tale in detail and I was not coy.
The Miranda rights came out and they began to arrest the boy.

My dad took me aside and into another room
and told me that he was there for me while chaos and uncertainty loomed.

I told my dad that I didn’t know what to do.
I just wanted to be respected; validate my truths.

Dad concurred and heard out every word that I had to say.
He explained the male teenager’s behavior, and how charges come to stay.

He left it up to me, to send the classmate to the clinger or not.
I chose to let this be a warning, they uncuffed the popular snot.

Teary-eyed with so much to lose, he never bothered me again.
I saw him a decade after graduation and his aura reflected the sin.

I don’t think he ever did such a thing again. Forcing intimacy is lame.
Plus when I saw him in the store a decade later he hung his head in shame.

I am not mad at him anymore, and it looks like his lip went down too,
I’m Qui
and Kavanaugh isn’t supreme at all if any of what Christine said is true.

 

When your truth is too true

FACT: The title of this piece was provided by a person who was self-evaluating. And no, the person was not me.

Brutally honest folks who mean well should consider the following information before each honest delivery:

“Truth and honesty without compassion is brutality.”

decorative-line-divider1

I suppose I should know,
I’m an honesty-wielding Leo.

Yessir, and yes ma’am, -I’m confessing to you kinfolk:
with retrospection and honesty, I can impale another’s throat.

I often preface  though, “the following won’t be pretty, but it is honest reality…”
Often times the receiver is their best amen choir & believer – and may get mad at me.

Everybody wants honesty but not as it pertains to what they (themselves) do.
Right?
I cannot nourish your plight and recommend A FEW GOOD MEN for movie night –
because “you can’t handle the truth.”

I dig ol’ Bader Ginsburg, Ruth and McKinnon, Kate of SNL.
When it comes to lasting impersonations, Kate brings the judicial hail.

Still, I’ve always known that my most honest deliveries could use a little more tact.
I thank my mom for my compassionate heart and my dad for holding nothing back.

I am indeed Redd’s daughter; I am honest and I preface – please do not take offense.
I’m Qui
‘loving the honest quote that I heard on TV. I’m working on me and the quote makes good sense.

What show was I watching? Well, now that’s a good question.
This show is the best yo, it’s called MARRIED TO MEDICINE.

The truth and honesty quote is stronger than an espresso brew.
If you’re not a sugar-coater of truth, does this quote at all apply to you?
