These D’s

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics on April 27, 2017 at 7:52 am

sign-language-letter-D.jpgD is for Donut. I prefer one with my morning cup of jo.
A little sugar sweet with  my caffeined bean and I am good to go.

Good morning baby, how did you sleep? I hope you slept well and do not Doze
On the job, the kids, the first pew at church or as you’re driving on the road.

D is for Don’t: Don’t ever shortchange YOU.
And be mindful to do unto others as you’d like to be done unto you.

D is for Dunce. Don’t be a dunce or act like a drumpf.
Ditch the funk to become an egotistical, self centered punk.

assorted-donuts.jpgD is for DO — as in DO your job! Ol’ Congress get’s a D.
Paul Ryan’s dancing with defiance and making bleak history.

D is for Deny. Lies from the mouth create a documentable stench of pollution.
So the white house is saying nothing as it pertains to the case of  ‘Russian collusion.’

Lord Deliver us from confusion. The D – is good for that.
The ACA is on the chopping block with the threat of it’s line going flat.

D is for Deal making. There’s a communicative art to doing it.
WH administration needs a course on deals — they’ve been duly screwing it.

Nafta? Canada? Mexico? Just who are we leaving?
The commander in chief is a whole lot of hot air and gutteral heaving.

D is for the devil in the details
Are we in a hand basket on our way to hell?

These D’s are on the table;  these D’s are capitalized.
These D’s are the Dumb ass moves that will play their part in tomorrows cries.

These D’s are just alphabetized thoughts that I woke up with – on my mind.
Likely because I fell asleep to CNN’s satellite grind.

Thank God for a new Day! I’m awake and I have Duly changed the channel,
I’m Qui
on These mid-week D’s… because there’s nothing we can’t handle.

Time to get on These D’s….

Let’s Talk

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Science on April 23, 2017 at 3:50 pm

talk.gifThe weekend has been nigh and the hours have been great
for the most part, I’ve maintained a smile on my face.

Life is a race but I don’t think it’s about being swift,
more than about what you do, what you’re into and who you do it with.

You know?
Today Let’s Talk and exchange the blunt info.

Like, what’s going on in your life? Are you making positive strides?
Is your health, diet and fitness, shaking out to be alright?

Do you have a plight that you would love to voice?
Never settle for anything – you deserve a choice.

Especially within intelligent legislation as it pertains to health care… just an off the cuff mention.
I’m not down with the “repeal and replace,” as much as I’d like to talk about a SINGLE PAYER system.

Our health is in need of care and is nothing at which to squawk,
So yeah, today I’m feeling intimate, give me a minute and Let’s Talk.

Today I was up early, but much too early to rise,
I waited for the sun to break through the clear AZ skies.

Once it broke, I pulled it together and hit the road
a day of leisure will be my unfold.

I have writes to create and film editing — what a fun day.
The remainder of my desks chambers will have to wait until Monday.

Right now, I’m more interested in you, the weather and the GOOD that you’re farming.
I also wanted to know what are your thoughts on Global Warming?

I want to make sure that you’re still focused on tomorrow and constructively making lays.
I want to make sure you secure your future — stack chips for tomorrow (plan not to borrow) today.

These are notes that I have for myself on sticky notes and always on mind.
Let’s Talk, compare notes, look at our interests and plan our votes —
I’m curious to learn your finds.

When I decided to chat it up today I was duly thinking of Joan Rivers’ historical indention,
She used to do a CAN WE TALK routine that surely helped me to title THIS rendition.

can-we-talk-joan-rivers.jpg

decorative-line-divider1

Let’s Talk about being bold, being fierce, being raw…
Let’s Talk about congress, bills and laws.

What do WE really want, y’all?
Our country is looking funky to the rest of the world, y’all.

We could talk about how we got here and how we can reverse what we’ve put into action.
I think it’s time we take these discussions seriously. Child, serious talk is in fashion.

Clothe yourself with knowledge and learn what the heck is going on.
The PROTESTS in the streets are thoughtfully planned to go long.

Wasington-Post-Earth-Day-2010-Mall-Shot-1024x579.jpg

Washington Post – Earth Day 2017

Let’s Talk about your interests and where you stand on the EPA.
Let’s Talk about how bills have been signed to roll EARTH HELP protections away.

A few days ago was EARTH DAY and so many held signs, shoulder to shoulder in the streets
Across the world, there was man, woman, boy and girl, bearing weather – be it cold or heat

To make a point:
420 weekend was less about smoking a joint

and more about coming together across the worlds lands and seas
to say Earth deserves to be loved. A demand shown by WE.

Let’s Talk about what we mean more often, we deserve to be heard,
I’m Qui
Open to hearing your point of view. Communication rules the nation. WORD.

So what’s on your mind?

420-holidayGood evening Munchie! 🙂 I’m here to divvy the sticky skinny
of the goods in Arizona on this day of 420.

Gimme! Gimme that tincture in a medicinal frame…
I could use it for this maxillofacial pain.

Despite Marijuana not being legal in all 50 states
Seems citizens support legalizing it– but it’s too little too late.

mmj-tincture.jpgOf states that are bold enough to put it on the ticket
The opposition to shut it down – comes in the thicket.

Personally I think law makers who voted it down smoke pot – the most.
And I think the smokers who voted it down don’t deserve to smoke no ‘mo.

Yes!! There is no such thing as a conservative pot smoker
But let them tell it – they’re true old school stoners; relic tokers.

They hail it “a gift from God; an all natural intimate sport.”
Q: So if you enjoy it so much, what did you vote it down for?

Medical card numbers soar, as the masses realize
You don’t have to take RX meds to pain disguise.

Knowledge is on the rise. The more I read, the more I score plenty.
Knowledge is in abundance today on this 420:

MMJ Legal States
Qualifying Medical Issues
What to do next?

The time, here in Arizona is 4:20 on the dot,
I’m Qui,
Elevated near the mountains – down below, it’s a little too hot.

Sitting to the left? What have you got?

Set it ON FIRE

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on April 17, 2017 at 6:33 am

matches.pngToday is Monday and you all know how I feel–
I’m always on that relative Griot spill.

Today I’m ON IT! Filled with excite and inspire!
I’ve got pends in the bin and I’m ready to Set it ON FIRE!

I’ve got a THINK TANK to commune with to birth a new script write.
I’ve got a toddler on my hands; he’s 69 – cutting up like he’s 5.

I call him my father, my elder, my birthright sire.
My hands are full with “needy bull” and I’m ready to Set it ON FIRE! 🙂

Hey! Whatever it is that needs productive igniting – resist the feeling to say “screw it.”
Hunker down and get a handle on it from the ground… aka set a RESOLVE match to it.

N. Korea’s been acting up, nuke-testing without clear sense.
And who do we think was scared off by the words of Mike Pence?

I don’t think Kim Jong Un is going to stop missile testing anytime soon.
What now? Is the US going to “go at it alone,” Per the Twitter buffoon?

We had a presidential election last year on who we wanted to head up the country, to hire…
The elected came in as if drunk off Ripple and Gin then took years of (country) progress and Set it ON FIRE!

EPA standards have been rolled back and Planned Parenthood funding is divvied to the states.
We’re back to that B.S. — a woman must have the child, even if she is raped.

Sounds like a lot of future welfare cases are about to be made
In a country that was once held “LAND OF THE BRAVE.”

[Current administration conversation]
Don’t abort that baby, Ms. American lady! Are you serious?
Girth it, birth it, seek assistance and be treated like a refugee from Syria.

Policy delirium.

Oh well, still I rise, with wide open eyes and continue to aspire!
When met with a challenge, I raise my standards and Set it ON FIRE!

This piece is not quite a NEWS PERUSE fuse, though there is much to say on the topic.
We’ve got Steve Stephens out willing & killing; Authorities are out to STOP IT.

Dear citizens in Cleveland, keep your eyes peeled and open
There’s a nut on the street and his gun is smokin.’

Nuts work for free, it seems. I’ve seen no signs saying: NUTS FOR HIRE!
I pray for the force of the law to not only catch, but Set Stevens plans ON FIRE.

Today is a new day, in a new week, totally poised for greatness within,
I’m Qui
Good Morning to thee, when was the last time you meditated or took a knee bend?

SET the current trends ON FIRE … start to PRAY again!

Farewell Dear Sir

In News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on January 10, 2017 at 8:24 pm

the-obama-familyTonight BIG LEO graced the political stage and said it:
THIS was his FAREWELL SPEECH to prelude his exit.

President Obama was real and raw in talking about one side and the other.
He’s not ever been a prejudice man – of all races he’s been a lover

and I appreciate his words of unity, his relativity and insistence to remain
that if we are to build a better world for our children we still need to change.

It’s true, change is still needed and BIGnevermind  the small.essence-president-obama-michelle
And there’s no such thing as a POST RACIAL America at all.

As sure as the President made that clear there lain he no sorrow,
because he backdoor’ed it with confessing his belief in our tomorrow.

The forum that President Obama chose to deliver his speech
held 20,000 heads – a pretty personal reach.

In times before, well at least with the last two administrations
the exiting president voiced his farewell via a small room and camera crew relation.

President Obama loves the energy of this nation and I’m glad he chose to do it BIG.
I cried during his delivery,  I really hate to see him leave — his style is one that I dig.

Because I am about change – I understand we must move on and happily, I will.
I’m Qui
saying THANK YOU Sir and FAREWELL. The change you’ve yielded – helped to push US atop of a very steep hill.

Your service to our country has been GREAT and worthy of the highest seal.

No #BlankChannel Consumption

Nope – still not watching satellite news in my home! Ooo-ya!
I’m thankful to God and my supporting fam. Yep – Hallelujah!

So it’s Day 3 again in the work week that we know
until it get’s to Thursday is all but a valley of slow.

Today is HUMP DAY – you’ve heard me say it a time or two.
I’m up early feeling real girly – what are you waking up to?

Ooo-Ooo-Ooo so much has happened in the world since last we met.
I’ve read a lot – knowledge has hit the spot and most of it I won’t forget.

Now just because I haven’t watched satellite news does not at all mean
that I haven’t received news updates via email that keep me abreast of “the scene.”

The president elect is doing this thing and nominating all over the place
when he’s done rearranging “peck order” – will we recognize the US’s face?

I also received a news link
of a Trump voter feeling ” the sink.”

foreclosure-king-trumps-cabinet-member

Want to know MORE about Mnuchin? Click the pic.

Teena Colebrook is 59 and she’s quite aware
that Trumps new housing official is anything but fair…

and I quote [DailyKOS] :

“When Donald Trump named his Treasury secretary, Teena Colebrook felt her heart sink.

She had voted for the president-elect on the belief that he would knock the moneyed elites from their perch in Washington, D.C. And she knew Trump’s pick for Treasury—Steven Mnuchin—all too well.

OneWest, a bank formerly owned by a group of investors headed by Mnuchin, had foreclosed on her Los Angeles-area home in the aftermath of the Great Recession, stripping her of the two units she rented as a primary source of income.

“I just wish that I had not voted,” said Colebrook, 59. “I have no faith in our government anymore at all. They all promise you the world at the end of a stick and take it away once they get in.”

So even though I have not been watching the news – yo, this still seeped in.
I had to share it with you, because if I have a clue and withhold – tis a sin.

A week ago on a day of WINS (Wednesday) Real Estate was headlining the plate and ditto —
I was Humping quite a few REAL ESTATE dumpings and posted several links to Zillow.

You know if I have an inkling of a thing – I will share it with you,
folks are jumping real estate ship because of the Trump Admin truths

that are showing their face by the cabinet members he is choosing.
The Obama Admin will exit on an economical high — the people aren’t ready for losing.

God bless us all, vibrate higher and #StayAhead,

tump-won-election

The DOW was shocked into plunging 700 points

America has spoken and this morning many people are crunk –
because Americas 45th President has been voted: Donald Trump.

Electoral votes were 276 – 218
Hillary Clinton lost the campaigning scene.

No sore losers here. We’re all Americans – we’ve got to stay strong.
The DOW sharply fell 700 points as the night of tallying went on.

We woke up this morning to something new and very different indeed.
Americas response is divided; we’ll continue to work on “the WE.”

I fell asleep shortly after 9pm and woke up around 2am – before day
and could not find one local or world news station broadcasting #Celebrate!

millenials-for-trump

Why not? Someone won the election yesterday. Someone most people voted for.
The next 4-years are yours to love. Congrats Republicans on your score.

I AM WITH HER. I voted my conscience and heart.
America has spoken, but the world doesn’t see us as #smart.

To Hillary Rodham Clinton: Girl you did you best
to offer us a united solution to avoid uncivil rest.

Thank you for being so gracious and conceding on point.
I’m doleful that you won’t be re-occupying the White House joint.

All the same: TODAY IS A NEW DAY! Let us get up and ride this hump!

Betting on #Sweets

In Comedy, Politics on November 8, 2016 at 10:29 am

Mid morning I received this tasty little treat in my inbox. I’m not much of a Krispy Kreme fan, but I do enjoy a fresh baked pastry every now and again, much like the candidates who have been diligent in stopping by for photo op’s at bakeries in various toss-up states. So yeah, this bit of #sweet was in my inbox:

sweet-bakery

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump walk into a bakery shop.

As soon as they enter the bakery, Donald steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket.

He says to Hillary, “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t see anything and I don’t even need to lie. I will definitely win the election.”

Hillary says to Donald, “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show cinnamon-rollyou an honest way to get the same result.” She goes to the owner of the bakery and says, “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick.” Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives her a pastry. Hillary swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives her another one. Then Hillary asks for a third pastry and eats that, too.

The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, “What did you do with the pastries?”

Hillary replies, “Look in Donald’s pocket”… 😀

decorative-line-divider1

I suppose it’s a cool way to not send a con artist to jail but simply reveal that his actions were all a part of a joke.

I researched the previous funny and found several links that had the two candidates names switched. 🙂 Either way, it’s funny. Go on laugh and then give thought to not only paying for your next fresh pastry but also for the  order of the next person in line (or the one ahead of you). I do it all of the time. I won’t lie, I’m selfish in my doing — I love to see people smile. I don’t care about your political status, but I do love to see you smile.

Let’s SMILE and LAUGH MORE!

We’re ALL In This Together

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on November 2, 2016 at 6:08 am

we-are-in-this-togetherA new month in a year we met only 11 months ago –
Seems like a lifetime with all of the kicking to and fro.

Politics is the debuting show and it has been known to mood damper.
My neighbors of intellect and fundamental vex are no happy grounded campers.

I had two incidents happen this weekend that truly made me pause –
While shopping at Walmart & Costco I came close to being  a victim to assault.

Both were white females and my only render was a salutation word.
Each snarled before they spoke; their conversation exhibited their last nerve.

A quick and frazzled pitch was emitted from each of them on word one.
I, with a different friend in tow at each store – witnessed their undone.

It’s voting time in Arizona and you know that I’ve already done my part.
Folks aren’t asking but speculating, case basket’ing and falling apart.

I’ve seen this happen before, twice in fact…
But it really doesn’t have to be or feel like that.

Whatever happens post this election, God help us all, we have to deal.
But to lose control of emotions and your soul over politics –yields no appeal.

I still love you, I’m still buying your coffee at a Starbucks.
Don’t let the game drive you insane – resist going nuts.

PRAYthat’s what they say and I personally know that it works!
Politics schmolitics we need no divisive girth.

This is the month of THANKS and at the end of the day I am thankful for YOU.
I’m Qui
Up early with thee to hump day 3 which is squarely after 2. 🤗

Inhale, exhale. Execute Self Improvement and get out of the woods.
Life is a game that must be played, pray up and focus on THE GOOD.

I’m gonna start with:
