Good Morning Honey!

.
And the day looks better; today resembles a better day.
God bless the Biden campaign; I’m praying for a united hooray!

God bless the Harris campaign. She knows what’s going on.
A woman ain’t a woman if she isn’t firm and standing strong.

Therefore, Elizabeth Warren’s plans are not wrong.
She’s on a 1-woman mission to educate America’s song.

Dust the jock-itch off of the throne and wipe it down with Pledge.
Though please leave room for Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

He is clear in his comments; I appreciate him town hall’ ing on Fox.
Pete Buttigieg is doing his thing – out of the closet and not in a box!

That rocks! The Democratic field is so diverse.
America is in for a treat — we can meet her thirsts.

Let’s send discord away in a hearse with a nitrogen boost.
A better message is brewing – massage it to roost.

Good Morning Honey! I’ve missed you so.
I’ve missed the unity that we had to and fro.

Remember that?
There are 23 running Democrats
who say that we can get it back.
What do you think about that?

I think it’s rad, though we’ve so many months to go.
Biden is at the top so far, but we’ve seen races befo’

where the front runner drops back midway during the run.
Truth be told, I like ol’ Joe and Kamala’s moxie can’t be undone.

Republican Congressman Justin Amash put out an interesting tweet the other day
with a point-for-point list of what has gone awry and away during this administration’s sway:

Good Morning Honey! It’s Monday morning again.
I’m up watching a race that someone’s going to win.

Let the winner be for unity bearing an all-inclusive grin,

Good Morning Honey! Pay close attention for you and a friend.

The SIFT Show

Kicking it with John, Alex, and Mark

.

We are in the 4th season of SHOWTIME’s series, THE CIRCUS with John Hieleman, Alex Wagner, and Mark McKinnon who are selling peanuts, popcorn, and front row seats to sift through seven days of political views under the current administration’s hue. If you haven’t noticed, it has been quite the sift-show.

Episode 2 of The Circus’ 4th season aired last night and the trapeze artists were all over the place; titling the previous week’s events as  ” Circling Vultures.” The opening had an Anthony Bourdain feel to it as we are meeting up with Mark and Alex in an NYC diner for their weekly rendezvous.; they call John and the sifting begins…

Executive Humiliation

Gallery of Presidential Candidates 

KAMALA HARRIS: “Let’s Do This!”

For those that say Kamala is a young senator that has not done enough outside of the state of California, THE CIRCUS has two names by comparison for you: Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

CLIFF SIMS, former Trump Advisor turned Aide has the cutest set of dimples and has published the most poisonous book of snakes: TEAM VIPERS. Cliff said there’s an atmosphere in the White House of  “Kill or be killed” kind-of vibe going on.” And then Cliff goes on to recall a line from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, quoting, “Things are not as bad as they seem,” he continues, “That is how Donald Trump operates.”

SARAH SANDERS and the WHITE HOUSE PRESS BRIEF
yields the concerning public no sweet relief.

ROGER STONE‘s media tour of “I’ve Done No Wrong”
isn’t going so strong, despite paid aides fanning his throne.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG is flirting to run in 2020;
as for advice to HOWARD SCHULTZ, he has plenty.

Both men are skilled and noted billionaires.
Neither man can relate to the average American Health Care scare.

Universal Healthcare & Healthcare for all,
just may be their identified APPEAL STALL.

COREY BOOKER, the Senator from NJ has thrown his hat in the race
and he did so in front of his domicile place; poised with relativity, hope, and grace.

Senator Booker’s tenacity for unity is no surprise
and his slogan hits home: “WE WILL RISE.”

Maya Wiley and Nick Ackerman closed the show over a meal with John H.
The Circus is the wildest political show on Earth and for episode 3, I can’t wait.

Drop in on The Circus this weekend and enjoy The Sift Show,
I’m Qui
Sipping Monday jo and eating 411 on the go.

LET’S TALK ABOUT You, Me and Lil Ol’ AOC!
Don’t be fooled by her height – for she is a beast!

Be warmed by her youthful Pelosi-like heat:

.

Yes-Yes! She’s doing her thing; for the people she slays!
70% of Americans are all ears at what she has to say…

LET’S TALK ABOUT coffee; regardless of where you take it – in your mouth or in your butt
I’d like to know your thoughts on the 2020 Presidential run-flirt by Starbucks Schultz?

The NY Times isn’t feeling him; he’s running as an Independent candidate.
Why do that and not run as a Democrat, asked Bloomberg of Schultz’s race.

bloomberg-vs-schultz.jpg

LET’S TALK ABOUT what you think? Exactly how full is your cup?
Are you interested in another billionaire benefiting at the 1% share
divvying your constitutional cut?

Aha! Don’t get your feet in another rut. Do think about tomorrow.
Please don’t vote on a whim; from that, we have this current sorrow.

Tomorrow is coming. A new dawn will crack.
I don’t know where you are now, but we can talk about that.

LET’S TALK ABOUT staying in good shape. Has your gym membership been handy?
Chile, I utilize the home gym 4 times a week tho daily I’m eating chocolate candy.

dancing-chocolate-candybarLawd help me. I am without restraint and head over heels for sweets.
It’s just that unlike fruit it’s easy to chew and soft on my teeth.

To wear braces is not a cool breeze.
Still, for my good, I’ll put away the sweets.

I intend to live mindfully; I’m truly ’bout it, ’bout it.
I love keeping it real with you – I’m glad we talked about it.

Alas, the weekend is upon us and I want to go out tonight.
Like you – I’ve got bills too, still, I insist on living life.

Dancing is a must. LET’S TALK ABOUT it, shall we?
You don’t like crowds, we can dance at my house –
It’s a get together if we have more than 3.

Let’s do it! It’s Friday morn and we have plenty of time to invite,

Ready to take on the day, do my homework and play before I kick it with you tonight.

Good morning baby, it’s Monday indeed.
I’m high with no coffee beans or weed.
Our pending collective vote is the responsible seed.

I am high off of life and I am plenty, plenty “woke.

baby-fall-down

WELCOME NEW VOTERS – Don’t be intimidated.

Good morning Dear Monday, tomorrow we vote.
Stay focused – don’t yield to the hocus; don’t choke.

CALL 1-866-OUR VOTE

What’cha want today? Whatever it is – you can have.
On November 6th, let’s go to the polls and laugh.
‘Not being heard,’ needs to be our new thing of the past.

Let’s make every moment count – life goes way too fast.
This week offers new acceleration; please step on the gas.
I yearn to be closer — like we used to be in the past.

Vroom-Vroom! Are you ready? Are you truly awake?
I’m Qui
Manifesting good for WE – tomorrow is ours to give or take.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? WHAT WILL WE COLLECTIVELY SAY?
Take a moment to meditate and pray; claim this as a Manifesting Monday.

This Stuff Right Here…

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:
american-flag-waving.gif

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:

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.

Regardless of the Talib

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on August 10, 2018 at 12:58 am

The Talib’s do excellent groundwork

I dig a couple of pretty awesome people whose names sound the same but are spelled differently: Talib Kweli and Rashida Tlaib. I recently became introduced to Rashida Tlaib via her recent news headlines. Rashida is running for Congress in Michigan. You may remember her from being kicked out of the GOP nominations campaign rally in 2016. Rashida said of that event,

“I told Trump that “our children deserve better” and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids. I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution. And then I was grabbed by several security personnel who physically moved me to the exit while I continued to express my concerns.”

She was right and that was two years ago. My, how time flies when you’re making sense of things in the world. It’s certainly no day at the beach but it is a party to and for common sense holders.

Which brings me to the other Talib: Talib Kweli has been holding common sense court on Twitter single-handedly for a little while now. He’s patient in his Twitter tone and delivers ‘aha moments’ wrapped in wisdom.

Any chance that you are following his timeline of inspiring quotes, comments and wisdom notes? Check him out, if only because a little bird told you and then approach doing so with an open mind & heart because Talib Kweli, much like Rashida Tlaib is about unity through understanding your community.

Who wants to live life misunderstood because they had a misunderstanding? It doesn’t make sense, but this jam does:

happy divider

The Talib’s are important in any progressive story.
Each in search of unity and less narcissistic glory.

I like them both. They mean business and we need it.
Is diversification necessary? Learn it and heed it.

The world is changing rapidly, still with you in control; you have the power to vote and are still at the helm.
Take notice of who your neighbor is, whose shaping your politics and whose forming the care of your health.

It matters.
Don’t let your good head be scattered.

Get to know The Talib’s. They are your neighbors; they are you and me,
I’m Qui
and there’s some good out there, Regardless of the Talib.

Oh Boy

In Griot, Music, News, Politics, Video on July 13, 2018 at 5:39 am

spanky_oh-boy.gifAnother glorious Friday! The weekends always yield me joy.
Though for what went uphill with Congress’ grill
of Agent Peter Strzok made me say, “Oh boy!

Did you get a chance to drop in and see it?
Strzok on the stand – I wouldn’t want to be him,

but he handled-up and told it like it was.
the statement he made about who the FBI is yielded him applause-love.

I was tuned in and little else ran in broadcast so steady.
For whatever the committee had planned for him, Strzok was prepared and ready.

I’m sure on Thursday morning Republicans in Congress felt confident that they would ‘bring the grill-filled noise,’
though they weren’t fully prepared for Strzok’s dismiss of their dares – he spoke bluntly and… Oh Boy!

Mr. Goodlatte was the chairman and his tone was on swoll
as he tried to conduct business like a boss but quickly lost control.

Democrats spoke-up in opposition of Goodlatte’s lead and the session went into rogue fashion.
Many began yelling about what Strzok would and wouldn’t be telling;
made me think of Cam’Ron & Santana…

Especially when Mr. Gohmert was questioning the Agent and brought up the agent’s wife.
That’s when I had to check the station, Gohmert’s tact was on vacation;
is he about that thug life?

Things in the hearing were pretty ripe. I enjoyed witnessing history unfold.
It really looked like fiction; I grew an instant concern and addiction.
Our country is in crisis — PLEASE VOTE!

Peter was grilled for about 8-hours, with a 2-hour lunch.
How many people tuned in with me? My guess is a bunch.

I almost changed the channel at its start, but I had a back-of-the-mind hunch.
Oh Boy! How many around the world tuned into the hurl? I reckon a whole bunch.

That was yesterday and this is today,
it’s Friday baby. Drop the cares and consider play.

I’m going to consider it immediately after my endearing collegiate ploy,
I’m Qui
On this glorious Friday, an intellectual high day – I pray thee not succumb to the Oh Boy‘s!

Congress started it but Peter Strzok brought the noise.

A NEW BOX

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on July 9, 2018 at 6:49 am

worn-out-cardboard-box.jpg

A new box? This is surely an old one.
With corners so weak, this isn’t a bold one.

The contents of this box are stale as well.
Someone taped it up and labeled it hell.

What the well? Who votes to hail this box beholden?
The contents are irrelevant; nothing is golden.

An old box holds old rocks and hints of chicken pox.
It smells like old white cheese and musty socks.

I’m not a big cheese lover, though on nachos it rocks.
I’m not into cheese as in a coward, who’s trying to please;
I’m not into cheese-smelling socks.

So I wear clean socks
and when I’m packing I use a strong box.old-boxes.jpg

I only use old boxes when I’m packing away trash.
Old boxes contain old views; a DO NOT RECYCLE stash.

North Korea spoke out this weekend and with teeth; they didn’t gum it.
They told the world, our country is a flaky girl; this after the summit.

The moves that this administrator is making are a real game changer.
Word from NK is America is going about business acting gangster.

Not that I listen to NK-Radio or anything
but this isn’t the song that we want history to sing.

It won’t bode well for us tomorrow.
No one helps the gangster-actor in his time of sorrow.

Our international allies aligning with us around the world is what rocks!
Somebody call UHAUL, because we need A NEW BOX.

Uhaul, overhaul; we need a new content (country) holder.
Make his corners strong and allergic to wrongs.
Yield him wisdom, compassion, and wide shoulders.
Strong like Samson — to move boulders.

I miss the years 2008 through 2016;
the last time America’s box had strong corners and seams.

We need A NEW BOX, this one cannot hold squat.
I’m Qui
an observative she
and it looks like we need A NEW BOX.

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on June 18, 2018 at 6:30 am

Ann-hathaway_on-the-phone.gif

Let’s talk about the weather, let’s talk about life.
Let’s talk politics – the culprit of recent strifes.

talk_about_it_June-18-2018
Let’s talk about the fam’; How’s your momma ‘nem?
Let’s talk about the state of our country and how we can effectively hem.

Where’s your bright spot, America? Aren’t we looking awfully dim?
Speaking of, let me divvy some specific love to the White House: Trump and ‘nem.

What up big Repub in the Oval Office room!
You have no stance and a slimming chance, yet the stock market still booms.

You’re not king ring-a-ling;  you’re chief of what is.
In the grand scheme, this is an American life-thing
and I question if your base-support is that big.

The global world isn’t loving us;
our allies are pushed-away from hugging us.

Rudy Giuliani is still bugging us
and the tweeting prez doesn’t know how to hush.

Let’s talk about it: Families being torn apart at the border.
We’ve too many resources and not sharing; we’re hoarders.

No laws are in place that deems such vile crap.
This is an administration issue, say both Republicans and Democrats.

It’s not a good look for our country and history will duly show
‘the chump on the hill’ to be a calloused heel —
intent on delivering Democracy a low blow.

Let’s talk about it: Nepotism Laws have been slaughtered.
If not to build a platform for women, what’s up with the 1st daughter?

Isn’t she a senior advisor to the prez?
If anything, what on earth has she said?

She, nor her father is helping.
My role? I’m going to God and I’m telling.

It’s what I’m known for and what I do.😁
I go to God when I can’t get through to you.
It’s true.

Because I am a praying spirit, please know that I am wise.
You don’t have to say much – your truths spill from your eyes.

I am grateful to see it.
The unwise under a guise;
I wouldn’t want to be it.

So, let’s talk about it: Where We Are and What We Mean.
Is Congress for the collected WE or loyalist to a he?

Think about it and then speak. Speak up, speak up, speak up!
There’s too much silence on violence or we just don’t give a WHAT.

If we are a collective and we truly care
pipe-up your voice at the ballot and place it there.

Mid-term elections are at stake and on the way.
Get up and get out – you have something to say

and the world wants to hear it.
Obviously, I’m confrontational; I don’t fear it.

Let compassionate hearts and minds prevail
Or I fear America will feel a backlash of hell.

Nothing is done without consequence.
Building consequence is how this admin is spent.

God help us, we’re a year and a half already in.
It’s increasingly difficult to understand and grin.

If our goal is to be selfish, not help others nor let them in…
We are rapidly gaining clarity to what the Bible calls a sin.

Republican Evangelicals:  the American youth are watching.
Their belief in your self-righteous religion is no longer clocking.

They don’t believe in you anymore. So you can stop.
They realize that you’re working for yourself and not representing God.

Their souls are wise.
They see the racism in your heart through your eyes.

When a person is hungry for help it’s hard to digest lies.
I’m Qui
Up to talk about it, because our biggest commonality is life.

Give it some thought and then let’s talk; be open-minded and spunky.
We’ve got to come together to change this administrations weather…
Let’s talk about our country.
