60! Six Zero! Al Franken Finally “Elected”

Senator Al Franken

Senator Al Franken

Un-freakin- believable that this has been held up for so long, leaving the folks in Minnesota without representation from their elected Senator.

Well – the good news is that the Senate now has a 60 Seat Democrat majority which could stymie Republican efforts to derail progress. Let’s hope they use it soon to correct some of the politically motivated decision of the SCUMUS 5, get the Health Care Bill Moving…

And finally get the country back on the right track.

After 8 Months, Franken Wins Senate Seat in Minnesota

Nearly eight months after Election Day, Al Franken, a former comedian and an author, appeared certain on Tuesday to become the next United States senator from Minnesota, giving the Democratic Party at least symbolic control over Senate filibusters. Continue reading

Young, Gifted, and Black #2,999,993

You know – as much as conservatives and their black acolyte Uncle Toms try and beat black folks down by constantly haranguing about that portion of the black population which doesn’t do well, or is failing…

Every day, we have standouts like the Stephen Allsop.

Rev Long Legged Mack Daddy (Other -Brother) is At it Again!

Here he goes again! This time on Michael Jackson’s funeral – demanding President Obama bump the Jackson family out of the way and take a front row seat!

You know – I now think I know what happened to Geraldine after Flip Wilson passed away!

Geraldine has a brand new gig!

Geraldine has a brand new gig!

Uncle Tommie Clarence… Again.

If you think this is about Ricci – You’re wrong (mostly).

The election of a black President of the United States has sent shock waves through the ever shrinking conservative Republican community. The sort of thing not seen in this country since 1929 when the Stock Market Crash resulted in folks jumping out of windows in high buildings…

The fear and loathing on the part of white conservatives has been palpable, with talks of secession from the Union being bandied around in conservative circles in several states.  After all, what white conservative could stand being subordinate to a black man?

Did I miss Something… Is Madoff Black?

150 years…

150 YEARS?

So much for Jewish people having become white. Bernie Madoff got more years for his massive white collar crime than your average black person gets for having a gram of crack cocaine…

And near as much as for being black while having two grams.

Damn… This is a first. Maybe the federal courts are finally getting serious about white collar crime?

I doubt it. It had a lot more to do with who the folks were who Bernie ripped off.

Of course he’ll be doing time at Club Fed.

Now – then there is Mark Stanford, or Lord Stanford as he likes to be called since being Knighted by the Queen of England.

Bank Robbery – Then and Now

With the summer Movie blackbuster season well under way, possibly the top movie of the summer will be released this week detailing some of the life of John Dillinger, played by possibly the best actor of his age group, Johnny Depp.

In the 1930 Depression era, bank robbers and gangters became pop culture heroes  – John Dillinger, “Baby Face” Nelson, “Pretty Boy” Floyd, “Machine Gun” Kelly, Bonnie & Clyde, and probably the most deadly gang – that of “Ma” Barker’s boys and Alvin Karpis.

Whereas once it was criminals robbing banks – it’s now the banks robbing the public. And like the criminals of the 1930’s – it’s time for the Feds to step in -
