rip-prince-april21-2016Prince took the elevator out. He crossed over on April 21 from his Paisely Estate in MN. We all know so much of why we loved him but in the end I realize that I actually know so little about the man. I was a fan. I’m still a fan of the moves he made in the music industries face that said loud and proud, “I am not your property.” He lent us his talents – no one owned them. That’s sexy and he will be missed.


He produced music and movies at will –
solely out of passion and thrill.

Nothing could be better.
He made the men look confident and the girls get wetter.

Sheila E. knew him better and she loved him the most.
Let us raise our lighters and glasses for a Raining Prince toast.
In such brief time he did the most.

Oh and as far as internet rumors go –
Haywood Nelson is not his brother, yo.

Many have been researching relative information on the late Prince, Mr.
Take heart, he had quite a few half siblings and left us one full blooded sister:

Meet Tyka Nelson…

What’s happening Today

Well, Politics ain’t new and the Donald is still running
he’s got nothing on Hillary but his campaign is cunning

and I can imagine in the general election, nasty hands will be played.
I am confident in the end that Donald Trump will get slayed.

politics-2016-hill-bern-trumpHill will be executing her Beyonce side,
she’s planning to rack up the votes and white house ride.

Bill Clinton’s long-time bride… but this is no easy sack.
Trump’s got a strong stump and a mouth full of smack.

I like that. I like a challenge presented via convenient friends.
Post The Bern love fest – Hill’s political knowledge wins.

What’s Happening Today is surely the same as yesterdays logged sorrows
but if we utilize intellect and make the VOTE-connect, we can better influence tomorrow.

Stay focused on you and your truths.
Vote in November. You are counting on you…


Getting High can be

It depends on which song and which verse.

If you’re doing drugs by mouth or vein –
You’re missing out. I’m HIGH off BRAIN.

I’m a fan of glue, but do take a closer look —
I’m fan of the bind it yields the pages of a book.

I’m a fan of the drink – it is so very true.
My preference is H2o and little Jesus juice.

I don’t mind sharing my truths, I’m not into “the lie.”
I’m all about making historical strides. I’m HIGH on LIFE.

Not a Miller High Life thang – though that was my grand daddy’s drink.
The former spokesperson was my HS alumni and delivers me to think

about him, he has passed, not much more than a year ago,
just as I was getting used to the commercials of the Miller High Life show.

Windell was an alright dude and while he was drug free he loved a good meal.
Comfort food is good (best when found in the hood) but can take you down. For real.

Don’t use food as a drug.

Getting High can be awesome, but it need not come with an added burn.

Pass The Dutchie to Jeb

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, TV Shows on September 18, 2015 at 5:06 am

Yes, I did my best to catch the GOP Debates
but truth be told i really had a lot on my plate.

Besides me being on the commute (for work) in and out of state,
I thought this would be a good time to residence relocate. 😀

Oh yes. I like a FULL DAY so I’m going to pause now to kick it with you
on an early-before-dawn morning to touch on a headline or two.

Let’s start at 2:30am Arizona time
when MSNBC’s WAY TOO EARLY was all the way live.

This airs before MORNING JOE’s shucking and jive.
Please don’t get me wrong – I love MJoe’s headline dives.

WAY TO EARLY opened with a comedy clip from “The Nightly show with Larry Wilmore”
as he highlighted a GOP debate picture clip we’d never seen before.

Remember how the Reagan airplane was the debates backdrop?
Well Bobby Jindal appears to be in a window seat – an obvious pic crop.

Hilarious all the same.
That Larry Wilomre is insane.

He also cracked on Trumps ‘smug’ resting face
claiming you could do multiple freeze frames, where topics have changed –
but the smug remains.
To that I say, Trump is comfortable in his lane.

But then Larry went hard and paralleled the Trump weenie
(by video clip and facial expressions) to the dictator Mussolini.

The audience majority laughed in the shadows, a few moaned and then Larry wanted to make clear
that “If you think I’m comparing Trump to Mussolinithat’s exactly what I’m doing here.”

msnbc-amy-holmes-way-too-earlyTodays WAY TO EARLY host was Republican pundit, Amy Holmes (@TheBlazeHotList).
She’s a fair mocha skinned, curly haired kin, eye candy-smiling Ms.

Amy opens the broadcast with TRUMP on the campaign stump –
when a New Hampshire supporter took an ‘Muslim terrorist cell’ dump.

His question started out stating ‘Obama is a Muslim‘ and then flew
into “Muslims want to kill us.. what are we going to do?

Trump did not hit on the ‘Obama’s a muslim‘ part, but he did say this
when it comes to those types of (terroristic) issues – “We’re going to look into it.”

The hate in this country can not be ignored and with urgency needs to be addressed.
People can not continue to simmer in fear and hate; for our country – it is not best.

Since Vladimir Putin’s name surfaced beyond Sarah’s Palins view & beyond Wednesday nights debate –
it looks like soon the GOP front runner and the Russian leader may be meeting face to face.

Michael Cohen [Attorney for Donald Trump] said yesterday,

“He’s a dealmaker and everything today is about a deal. Our dealings with foreign countries, Mexico, China, Japan, right, um, Africa, it makes no difference, Russia. I mean, There’s a better than likely chance Trump may even meet with Putin when he comes here for the United Nations.”

Amy concluded, “However Trumps camp said that Cohen works in the business side of Trumps operation and that they don’t know anything about a meeting yet.”

She moved on to Scott Walkers dropping poll numbers.
History shows those who sweat like lunch meat, in debate — their appeal slumbers.

It’s true. I was sweating just watching them. It wasn’t fair.
Were their suitcoats lined with fur, or was there no air?

Why torture folk on the debate stage? Drop the temp to 68.
I tried to keep watch, but they made me feel hot and the hour was getting late.

Anyway, Amy has my back, she covered quite a lot more,
here’s the short end of the WAY TO EARLY score:


Trump: 18:47 Cruz: 10:45
Bush: 15:48 — Paul: 10:28
Fiorina: 13:30 — Kasich: 9:44
Carson: 12:56 — Huckabee: 9:20
Christie: 12:36 — Walker: 8:29
Rubio: 11:21

Amy also dropped this –> Scott Walker did a radio interview on the Glenn Beck Radio Program yesterday, and the Wisconsin Republican claimed the media had always chosen a debate winner before the debate even began. Scott was quoted as saying,

“Going in, we knew the narrative no matter what was going to happen was that they were going to say Carly had a big night, no matter what, and obviously they said that.”

carly-fiorinaCarly Fiorina talked about the Planned Parenthood video of ‘a fetus, alive and kicking on the table,
with abortion techs standing by to harvest the brain and whichever organs, they are able.’

After Amy showed the clip of Fiorina saying this
she added the Wall Street Journal said this is a FACT: MISS.

The Wall Street Journal reports there is no such scene in the abortion videos in which she spake.
Carly Fiorina had my attention. I was on the “concern for life” take.

I am still very much concerned, but I wish Carly wouldn’t exaggerate.
Planned Parenthood helps many women without being on the financial gouge take.

That’s a quality of life plus when very little money, one may make.
Everyone that uses Planned Parenthood’s services isn’t on a “system take.”

DRAFT BIDEN PAC Official: ‘I am 100% that Joe is in.
That’s a periodical headline from the National Review Online bin.

I like VP Joe Biden. He’s got a big heart that’s boisterous in heal,
If Joe B throws his hat in the ring – it’s going to be a “Big Funking Deal.” 😉

Last but certainly not least, in fact, this piece of news was best,
There was talk of the old days, the dutchie and old Jeb.

Jeb admitted on the debate stage that he once smoked a joint.
Getting high was in his past but admitting to truths was his point.

I don’t have a problem with baby boy Jeb – he’s just trying to be his own man.
I just hope he can survive the GOP’s puppeteer hand.
The GOP leaders use talking points to lead the band.
Jeb Bush is a bit of bore, but he is his own man.

Or so that speech is the plan. I surely hope that it works out.
If not, somebody’ll need to Pass The Dutchie to Jeb, so he can blow it out.

The week has been stout and full of informative and missed headlines,
I’m Qui
Happy weekend to thee. I’m up WAY TOO EARLY on this networking vine.

In a couple more hours, the Arizona sun is gonna shine…


News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Politics on July 29, 2015 at 1:09 pm

NEWS PERUSE_GossipTodays take-away department
has a couple of deaths in its compartment:

Sandra Bland was killed while in jail for not using her vehicles signal
and Bobbi Kristina exited life via coma after months of no wiggle.

Bobbi was only 22 and will be missed by her loved ones like no other
what a daunting way she went – the exact exit of her beloved mother.

God bless her father, Bobby Brown needs all the strength in the world,
God took one and gave him another – Bobby just birthed a new baby girl.

Bodhi is only days old — may loved ones open up, embrace and cheer!
Please believe big sis Bobbi K. played her part in getting Bodhi here.

Bobbi K is now free from judgment and I pray her feelings of being loved are plenty
She just wanted to be with the one that loved her most, her beloved mother Whitney.

Soul mates are soul mates. We don’t have to agree or like the way,
but Bobbi and her sole Mommy are surely together today.

divider blk_south

Sandra Bland was on her way to accept a new job in Texas
and now her death is the news headline that connects us.Sandra-Bland-Bobbi-Kristina-2015

It’s sad, very sad that Sandra lost her LIFE
over a traffic stop that should have yielded a cite.

BLACK LIVES MATTER! What other race has this issue —
Pulled over for a minor cite results in death and sorrow tissues?

Sandra called a friend while in lockup and did indeed confir
that she really needs to be bailed out, because ‘they are trying to kill her.’

‘They?’ Who is ‘they’ and why was she booked into jail anyway?
A traffic stop invoked arrest and Sandra is dead today.

Yes it’s blue and downer news but I did not make this up.
My News Peruse is best produced when recalling more moments of love.

Who are ‘they,’ and why would they want to take Sandra’s life?
Why is living black attached to so much involuntary strife?

She just wanted to go to Prarie View and start her new job soon.
Instead she was buried 4-days ago shortly after noon.


Donald-TrumpBut death isn’t all that is in the news, politics is still in progress.
Donald Trump is doing the rock and the bump;  party headlining at its best!

If campaign running is a test –  Donald is doing pretty good.
I must admit he tickles me pink when his name rises in my hood.

Yes, folk in this red state are digging him and my repub family members relate as well.
I reckon there are some things Donald must be saying that other folks fear being shot to hell.

Like IMMIGRATION – Donald says he’s not ashamed to speak out loud 
about what other Americans think but fear exile from the social crowd.

Hm. America, all the world is listening. They see the numbers of support piled on for Mr. Trump.
To say we are an all-inclusive country is to have other countries respond, “kiss my rump.”

Our “all inclusive love messages” do not resound true.
We can’t be inclusive lovers but “hate on others” – as our truth.

Trump is proof that many other Americans feel the way that he feels
and agrees that talking tough is an entertaining approach for candidacy appeal.

Hot air blows up hill and I am entertained too.
However, unlike my other brothers I don’t call Trumps voice my truth.


Bernie-SandersI like a good show and the Republicans are putting on a good one.
But don’t count Bernie Sanders, in any way – for being outdone.

Oh yes, the democrats have their own rising side show:
Bernies messages ring true to the youth and are good-to-go.

I’m listening yo! and I’d love for free college tuition to become a intranational truth.
So out in droves the children go – Bernie is talking  the future to our youth.

It’s a good idea and a great platform to stand on.
So many are singing the chorus to the seasoned band leaders song.

But will the rest of the voting public find shiny gold
in a 73-year old candidate or will they think that he’s too old?


Qui-entertainment-dinner-party-adolescents-2015I had dinner guests (with kids) over last week and MSNBC was on.
One of the adolescents saw old man Bernie and reacted in alarm.

He said, “That old man wants to be president? I won’t hate… he can try.”
Unsure of the pressures the adolescent questioned – if the stress would make Mr. Sanders die.

The adolescent is not 18, so he will not weigh in on the vote.
But his questions are valid. I was glad that he spoke.

My 18-year old was in the room and she’ll be voting in 2016.
My 18-year old is digging Bernie and currently supports his ideal scene.

Media coverage clips tells us that she is not alone.
Bernie is gaining support and is going for the end zone.

Me? I’m just Perusing the News. I’m just kicking this hump day with you,

Happy to love, feel, keep it real and do what I do.

This is another NEWS PERUSE.

The Elephants Morals & The Donkeys High-Kick

In Griot, News, Politics on May 19, 2011 at 8:45 am

Well it’s about that time and I absolutely could not refuse
composing a Griot formatted NEWS PERUSE:

Donald Trump still headlines and alas is out of the presidential race.
It seems he’s not accustomed to the media’s scrutiny or political egg on his face.

Huckabee had to follow his heart, though the factors said “GO”.
Actually he followed his wifes wise advice – she said, “Mike: Don’t run no mo’.” 🙂

Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Governator) was governing more than the state of C-A.
The details are still coming in, about his HIGH MORAL sin: Impregnating the maid.

I’m doleful about the news, I know all too well “good help” is hard to find these days,
especially the kind that gives birth to your child and keeps the secret for more than a decade.

The Elephants Morals are hypocritical – so out of reach, that not even they can meet their mark.
Many ivory trunks criticized Clinton for his Lewinski stunt; however tacky — he remained “safe sex” smart.
Bill didn’t father any additional children and Hillary was not forced to divorce so quick.
Thank God for cigars and cheap stained dresses – Clintons release was a minor nick.

President Obama is on his job; The last two years have really been healing…
He’s got so many cards to on the table, you’d think he was Vegas dealing.

He bears no neon magic, though he definitely has the deck and the upper hand;
He’s literally doing a donkey high kick & balancing on a head stand.

The President has been dealing with ethnicity heat, (every man has his in-house tests),
Though I’m feeling quite baffled by the challenging comments via Cornel West.

Last but not least, we’ve got an (I think I’m sexy) high profile IMF Chief,
who sexually harassed an African immigrant (hotel housekeeper) for nookie relief.

His name (if you didn’t know) is Dominique Strauss-Kahn
and today if he’s lucky he’ll be released on a $1M dollar bond.

And NOW you’re all caught up – with media headlines today,

Donald Trumps RACKET

Yep! The birth certificate issue was just a RACKET! A device used to serve obstacles to the President while he’s busy fighting off more pressing issues that face this conuntry like economics, the deficit bill, international affairs and wars (that span the last 10 years).

If this were a game of tennis – I pray that it would be a LOVE situation and that the President would leave the opposition: scoreless. Then again in all fairness, the President did just that yesterday when he busted out the long form of his Hawaiian birth certificate. Tad-ow!!!:

Game: LOVE

Donald Trump was on the court and his game exhibited an uninformed, aggressive shove.
The president tried to ignore Trumps ignorance, but it in the end, he had to show him love.

GAME OVER. The birther issue has finally been debunked
and the ignorance credit — is rightfully Donald Trumps.

He knew good and well, President Obama was not born in no Kenya
The racist seed is deep. Trump built towers of doubt all in ya…

If you are of the Tea Party persuasion:
What happens to your Trump vote – of presidential hopes?
Does it dry up like a sun exposed raisin?

Well now that the birth place issue has been put to rest
Trump is seeking paper work on Obama’s Harvard tests.

Are you serious? and um… REALLY?
The notion, (like Donalds ‘hair do’) is quite silly.

Are you really calling this man out on his PAPERS of VALIDATION – Yo!?
Like what was done [in 1899] to the great grandfather of Goldie Taylor of Grio?

Click the Video pic or Read the details below of Goldie’s familial “documented truth”,
then think about how American is treating their Commander-in-Chief dude:

“Show me your papers!”

Major Blackard, then just 19 years old, dug into his trousers in search of his wallet. He padded his jacket, but could not find his billfold.

“Sir, I done left my wallet…” Blackard said. Before he could finish his sentence, the young man was posted against the brick wall, cuffed and taken to the St. Louis city jail. Unable to prove his identity, he would spend the next 21 days in a cramped, musty cell. That’s where his older brother Matt found him, beaten and bloodied. Matt returned with Major’s employer later that day, wallet and identification card in hand, to post bond.
The year was 1899. Major Blackard was my great, great grandfather.

It’s a pretty sad and eccentric view.

Anywho – The President is going forward. There are other pressing issues that need to be resolved,
I’m Qui
Digging ‘the presidents game’ vs. ‘the lame’, and saddened that “WE” as a country – have hardly evolved.

Having said that: It’s Your Serve Mr. O.
I hear Obama’s CHESS GAME is also good to go.
Oh-ohhhh! 🙂

NEWS PERUSE: Know The Game

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, TV Shows on April 20, 2011 at 9:17 am

If you can't beat 'em - Throw an OBSTACLE in their way. Make it HARDER TO VOTE.

You know I’ve been kicking it with that girl again, and Boy Oh Boy are some states going out of their way to stop or at least hinder President Obama’s name from being on their states 2012 ballot. Rach’ said:

BIRTHER BILLS are up for signing in MT, NE, MO, IN, OK, AZ, AR, TN, ME, CT, TX, GA and LA [13 states]. Nebraska’s BIRHTER BILL would actually require the parents of a Candidate for President or VP to have both been American citizens and it seeks the to vet the parents birth certificates too. Really?. >>>Constitution be darned. Nebraska wants to see them”!

Oklahoma’s Birther Bill has already passed in the Senate and there’s a public hearing set for the Texas Birther Bill TODAY. If they do get this thing passed into law they could succeed in diverting the presidents campaign into LEGAL CHALLENGES over ‘getting his name on the ballot’. As ridiculous as this is– it is possible that this could effect whether or not Mr. Obama’a name is on the ballot in every state in the country and therefore wether or not he wins a second term.

FACT:: April 19th Public Policy Poll — IOWA REPUBLICANS BIRTHISM:

Do you think Barack Obama was born in the United States?
YES 26%

74% of Republican Voters in Iowa think President Obama was not born in the US or they are not sure that he was. This illogical (non factual) thought is strong holding the Republican party – big time, (no matter how their public leaders try to down play it), – you see that Donald Trump is currently trying to ‘build something’ on it. He’s a real estate mogul and the White House is great piece of land…

This BIRTHER BILL issue has the potential to be a real political impact on wether or not Mr. Obama is re-elected. If Republicans are able to raise question as to wether or not the Presidents name is on the bill, instead of gathering votes in any of the forementioned states, he could be tied up with legal issues trying to FIGHT to get his name back on the ballot.

This is an insane Orly Taitz issue that excites the Republican base like Roswell Alien sighting rumors. It is also means of using public policy however, to put Republicans thumb on the scale for the next election

That is also what’s happening with VOTER REGISTRATION POLICY. KS Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill that would make it harder to register to vote in KS than anywhere else in the country. “This is a trend”, says Rachel Maddow [MSNBC], “and it’s not getting nearly enough political attention. Particularly from Democrats”.

According to the Brennan Center for Justice a non partisan think tank that studies this stuff: Republican lawmakers in these states, [all 37 RED STATES] are proposing legislation that would make it harder ‘to vote’ and/or ‘register to vote’ in that state:

They love living in THE RED. Responsible for putting us into crazy debt after Clinton left the books clean

Please know that these 13 states WA, OR, NV, CO, KS, MO, TN, SC, ME, MA, CT, AL and TX are pushing to make voting really, really hard. Tying the ability to vote with the ability to prove, (PROVE being the operative word) ones citizenship. All be it the Kansas Bill which says essentially you’re going to need a birth certificate or a passport in order to register to vote. Ergo say ‘goodbye to the voter registration drives in the park, at your school, in the grocery store, (unless you carry your passport and/or your birth certificate when you go to the grocery store or walk your dog).

Why make it harder to register vote? Why kill the voter registration drive in America? Well here’s a thought: Making it harder to register to vote means there will be fewer 1st TIME VOTERS in the next election. That has real implications for the Democratic vs. the Republicans part of the world.

In the 2008 Election [per MSNBC’s exiting poll] —
FIRST TIME VOTERS voted 68% for OBAMA and 30% for MCCAIN.
█ ▆ ▅ ▄ ▃ ▂ ▁☆The rest is HISTORY☆▁ ▂ ▃ ▄ ▅ ▆ █

I really thought you should know this. I couldn’t resist dropping game,
and the way that RACHEL MADDOW lays it out ••► it is crazy insane.

However, if we are going to do this thing and do it for you and I: THE PEOPLE
It would do us some good to fact check for (the intellectual deck) our own steeples.

In other words, it would be good to understand what’s going on – instead of just going with the flow.
Don’t let unnecessary laws create for you a voting stall. Please HURRY & REGISTER TO VOTE.

You’re countrys stability depends on it. Stop transferring your wealth to the rich.
They are living high on the fat of the hog while you and your people reside in a debt ditch.
Ain’t that an itch,
(one that I’d like to scratch).

Wow! I thought Dr. Phil was good today [“A Predator Next Door“: Sexual Predators were discussed and some were PRESENT on stage]- but OPRAH was better. She hosted the tears of our 2006 Ms. USA (The one Donald Trump went “to bat” for) & Todd Bridges as he spoke candidly about “Killing Willis” (the name of his new book). He read page 68 from the book – aloud to the audience – at Oprah’s request…. Wow! Please tell me you saw (heard) it? GRAPHIC STUFF.

Tomorrow Oprah will broadcast the coveted interview she did with Rielle Hunter. Remember Rielle? She’s former Senator John Edwards illegitimate baby’s Moma. Sensationalism should be a sin — if it were, I’d just pray more. 🙂

Nope — I’m not a rank catholic. I don’t always get my way.
But I duly indulged & was educated during two talk show exhibits today.

Dr. Phil kept it real and went hard; Ms. USA telling Oprah EVERYTHING was also tight,
But Todd Bridges wore the crown for divvying “the most detailed & raw insight”.

What’s done in the dark always come to light; thus I’m feeling alot like Sameul L.
For the man who molested Todd Bridges when he was 11, “I pray he rots in hell”.

I kid you throughout this Griot piece – though both shows were very deep,

Atop of Wednesdays Hump post Dr. Phil & Oprah‘s sufficient feeds.
