A Hand and A Stand

The title crossed my mind last night. A Hand and A Stand should not to be confused with “a handstand.” I was happy to tune in to the State of The Union address. It was interesting and reminded me of



A new teacher tries to make use of her psychology courses. The first day of class, she starts by saying, “Everyone who thinks they’re stupid, please stand up.”

After a few seconds Little Johnny stands up. The teacher asks, “Do you think that you’re stupid, Johnny?” “No ma’am,” he replied. “But I hate to see you standing there all by yourself.”

There was quite a bit of standing at the #SOTU.
Republican should have worn house shoes —

the way that they were up-and-down in their seats so often.
If this were routine exercise, less butts would be softened.

Congress is full of spineless and mushy butts.
So, I know last night’s glute work drove them nuts.

Butt — it was fun to watch.
Every two lines, they would stand on-the-clock.

The American People are watching, as well as our global neighbors and kin.
I’m not the only one who was entertained by the constant and pointless standin.’

skating-elephantThe #SOTU was entertaining but nothing to leave you “in the know.”
Though it picked up significantly when it turned into a game show.

Remember all of the guests who were surprised that they had to act
like the Pres was surprising them after the dated fact?

Not one guest looked surprised – still it was good to know
that folks are compliant and came out to the show.

Though the state of our union, we still do not know.
I think that part of the speech hit the cutting room flo.’

Then again, truth be told, I know exactly how we’re doin,’.
If Congress reflected the people, there’d have been a lot of boo’in

in the esteemed gallery last night.
Civility is necessary; it was proper to oblige.

shrek-donkey-says-no.gifCongress displayed a pride; not quite model civilians.
At least the Democrats didn’t act-out like Joe Wilson.

Regardless of party – we are all family and we need to respect
each other/one another and slack-not on the “check.”

If your brother is wrong, it’s okay to hold his hand
and remind him of what’s right. No applaud – no stand.

The children are watching. So what does it mean, man?
Be a role model for the kids; tomorrow they’ll run the land

and not appreciate you, boo. Congress: bless your souls.
Many of you will be seeking re-election at the polls.

Mm-hm. Your way of business is getting old. I think it’s time to dip, man!

On my way to the gym, I’m working on my handstand.



The LEO Roared and…

Leo and The Lion

Alex (the lion) did it first in MADAGASCAR but the leo inside of President Obama DID IT last night.

Remember Alex?

Most folks liked it, judging by BING PULSE poll last night. Me? I found it to be a key address on so many levels. I dug it prodigiously. Any chance you caught the STATE OF THE UNION (SOTU) address Tuesday evening? It was a true party to the ear canals, brain lobes and eyes (including the third one).

You know me, if it’s good intel, I can’t eat it alone and not share, so let this HUMP DAY find us humping the SOTU and rehashing the good that dwelled therein.

President Obama did not get a 100% approval rating at anytime on BING PULSE last night, that I observed, but he stayed consistently in the high 80’s and low 90’s. It was beautiful. Without further adu, let me share the SOTU address with you:


God knows all that I want is to hear a little good.
I heard the applause resounding from so many neighborhoods.

I saw the smiles on their faces and the locks of their knees
when they stood to applaud often to the words of President B.

I was happy y’all — so happy to be alive to see high leveled polls,
to think that me and my Republican brother have a SOTU we can both uphold.

No, it wasn’t a perfect address and it didn’t hit every mark,
but my God, anytime is a good time to give bipartisanship a start.

I am happy today — on this day that is personally, still a very large hump,
I’m Qui
Happy to be kicking it with thee – I’m bidding you Peace, Blessings and LOVE.

Get on out there and win. Today is all about you!
Me? I’m already digging you for dropping in to peep my view.
‘Love you.
