Random Thoughts About Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden & Michael Bloomberg

So, here we are, son. The Democratic Party just made it through Super Tuesday and a lot of shit looks different out here, man. For the most part, I’m kinda shocked by the resurgence of Joe Biden. Then again, that’s not entirely true because it seems like the whole party hates Bernie Sanders. All in all, that’s the crux of my post today: the Democratic beef with the old guy from Vermont.

Ok, before I continue, let’s talk about how last night went. Now, it’s clear that both Biden and Sanders had a good evening. However, it’s also clear that Biden came out with a stronger showing. This is notable because his campaign looked fucking dead before South Carolina. In any case, if my math is right, Sanders had a 55 to 15 delegate lead over Biden before South Carolina. From there, the powers that be in the Democratic Party went into overdrive. Shit, House representatives were pleading Biden’s case. Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar dropped out and then immediately endorsed Biden. All I can say is, it’s very evident that internally the party doesn’t fuck with Sanders at all, fam.

Look, even when Sanders was up, I heard pundits on MSNBC and CNN bemoan the fact that he was in the lead. Hell, James Carville had several conniption fits at the idea of Sanders leading the ticket. I’ve also heard theories that a Sanders presidency would cause the Dems to lose the House. The fact is, anybody that hates Sanders is jumping for joy after last night, bruh. Thanks to victories in roughly nine states, Biden now has a 404 to 340 delegate lead over Sanders.

Now, here’s my thing, son. On the real, I can’t say that I’m excited about any of these fucking candidates, man. However, I truly hate the fact that a party is so openly conspiring against one of their own, fam. I mean, how’d that work out in 2016? The DNC essentially admitted to sandbagging Sanders for Hillary Clinton and she went out there and lost the fucking election to Donald Trump, bruh. So, why doesn’t everyone stop trying to play God and just let the process do what it needs to? Then again, I’m pretty sure that’s never happened ever, brethren. Frankly, I’m just being idealistic here.

In the end, this race is far from over, son. Ultimately, it’s going to be a two-way battle between Biden and Sanders. By and by, it’s time for Elizabeth Warren to sit the fuck down. Like, I have absolutely nothing against her, but I just don’t see how she can overcome these odds, man. In addition, why in the fuckity-fuck is Tulsi Gabbard still in this race? Did she just forget to announce that she’s quitting? Because she doesn’t have a shot in Hell, fam. At the end of the day, this race has already made my head hurt. Real talk, I’m not looking forward to the rest of this. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Oh, I forgot about Michael Bloomberg. Then again, so did the rest of America. Now, I’m sorry, bruh, but I can’t help but laugh. This fool spent roughly $500 million on his campaign and only has 12 delegates to show for it. Son, what a waste of fucking money. Now he understands what we’ve been trying to say all along: nobody bangs with dude. But, after dropping out, he also chose to go and endorse Biden. *Sigh* I see the whole plan in action, man. All I can say is, if Biden gets the nomination and loses, I’m holding all of these meddling muhfuckas accountable, fam. Good day.

We All Knew That Donald Trump Would Be Acquitted

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, Donald Trump‘s impeachment trial led to an impasse between my wife and I. To be clear, we both agree that this dude is guilty as shit. However, she wanted to keep our TV glued to the news and I wanted nothing to do with the constant coverage. Why? Because we all knew how this story would end, man. Real talk, we ALL understood that the Senate would acquit him. With that being said, why is anyone acting surprised, fam?

Ok, for those who haven’t been paying attention to our future, Trump’s impeachment trial just came to its logical conclusion. Now, despite the fact that the entire Ukraine situation was hilariously inappropriate, I never believed that Trump would be convicted of anything. I mean, let’s keep it a buck, bruh. The Republicans have the majority vote in the Senate, son. So, why would they break rank and actually oust Trump? Like, through three years of Trump’s presidency, when has the GOP EVER stood up to him? Fam, we couldn’t even get most of them to admit that Trump’s “very fine people on both sides” line from Charlottesville was a bad fucking idea. In any case, there was NO way that the Democrats could secure 67 votes for a conviction, man.

Moving on, when it came to the two articles of impeachment, the vote was damn near unanimous along party lines. Look, when it came to the obstruction of Congress charge, the vote was 53-47, with neither party breaking rank. When it came to the abuse of power charge, the vote was 52-48, with Mitt Romney being the sole Republican to vote against Trump. Needless to say, his party is LIVID with him right now. Shit, how dare he make a logical decision when he’s supposed to remain blindly loyal to his party, bruh? All in all, I didn’t pay much attention to this process because I already knew how it would end, son. So, I simply never understood the point of all of this, man.

In the end, the Democrats just gave Trump a gift, fam. Ultimately, President Orange is going to use this acquittal as a talking point on the campaign trail. By and by, he’s going to claim “vindication,” despite the fact that the deciding body is mostly comprised of his constituents. All I know is, this impeachment was an ill-advised move from the beginning, bruh. On top of that, all of the Democratic hopefuls for president suck, son. So, I hope everyone is ready for four more years of Trump, man. At the end of the day, I’ve got my passport ready, brethren. Hell, it might be time to bounce up outta this bitch, folks. That is all. LC out.

Trump Is Tryna Start WW3 On Twitter

So, before I even begin, I want everyone to carefully read the above tweet from Donald Trump. Real talk, I had to go inspect his timeline for myself just to confirm the shenanigans, son. Like, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I understand all of the inner-workings of our government. However, I’m pretty sure that a sitting President can’t use Twitter to compel Congress to start a war. Yet, here we are, man. *Sigh* I legitimately don’t know what the fuck is happening right now, fam.

Ok, let’s be real, bruh. At this point, I shouldn’t have to explain to people what’s going on, son. Basically, Trump authorized the assassination of Qassim Suleimani, Iran‘s Major General, and all hell has broken loose. Now, for folks who don’t understand the significance of this, if Iran knocked off one of America‘s Joint Chiefs of Staff, that would probably be similar to killing Suleimani. Meaning, this is a big deal, man. Like, a really big fucking deal, fam.

Anyway, since the drone strike hit Baghdad, the world has been wondering how Iran is going to respond. Because of this, all of the World War 3 jokes have started to fly on social media. Now, I’ll admit, there’s a lot of funny shit floating around, bruh. But, if the draft gets reinstated, my knees are most likely too bad for them to pick me, son. In any case, moments like this are exactly why I don’t know how Trump’s Twitter use has been allowed to thrive. Shit, he really might start a war with 280 characters, man.

Listen, as I stated in the opening paragraph, I really want people to understand the gravity of his words. Hell, against all semblance of protocol (and logic), the President is trying to tell Congress (a separate entity) what to do in the face of potential battle. Fam, what? What?! Look, I REALLY don’t want a potential nuclear holocaust to start on the same application that permeates SpongeBob memes, bruh. All I know is, there is NOTHING presidential about how Trump is handling this, brethren. Then again, what the fuck did I even expect?

In the end, I have no idea how this situation is going to resolve itself, son. Ultimately, I’m interested/terrified to see how Iran is going to retaliate. By and by, part of me doesn’t believe that Iran really wants to get into a full-on fight with America. On the other hand, maybe they are crazy enough to try and go kamikaze on us. Either way, the immediate future might be turbulent as shit, man. At the end of the day, folks better keep their passports on deck, fam. All I can say is, I’m taking my family the fuck outta here if shit gets serious, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Impeaching Trump Might Be A Bad Idea

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, when it comes to Donald Trump and impeachment, I have conflicting feelings, man. On one hand, I truly believe that something needs to be done about the reckless way he runs the presidency. However, given the Senate‘s history of sitting on their hands, I don’t see any action being taken, fam. With that being said, that’s why impeachment might be a mistake, bruh. The fact that the Senate won’t do shit, folks.

Ok, before I continue, let’s talk about Ukraine, son. Now, if we’re being honest, so much misinformation has been spread, man. Then again, what’s new, fam? In any case, this is what’s really going on. So, Trump, Rudy Giuliani and a gaggle of other fuck-tards have been trying to target Joe and Hunter Biden. As it stands, both Trump and Giuliani have had multiple conversations with Ukrainian officials about the Biden family. Essentially, the White House wants a foreign nation to do some digging on a couple of American citizens. All in all, Trump and company are convinced that the Biden’s are involved in corporate corruption.

In any case, Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky is what led to the whistleblower complaint. Basically, the whistleblower thought it was highly inappropriate for the president to ask for assistance against a political foe. Ever since then, Congress has been on fire, bruh. Shit, the House of Representatives is now setting up an impeachment inquiry and both Democrats and Republicans are trying to spin the story for their own respective narratives. The fact is, these are chaotic fucking times, son.

With all of that being said, these are the facts, man. First, the investigation into Burisma Holdings, the company that Hunter Biden is now a part of, began before Biden even joined the company. Meaning, they’re being investigated for crimes that may have occurred before Biden was in the picture. Second, former Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko has already confirmed that there’s no evidence of illegality from Biden. So, the whole corruption narrative that Trump and Giuliani are trying to spin has no merit, fam.

Third, when did it become fucking cool for the Executive Branch to solicit help from outside countries against its own citizens? Hell, it’s barely being reported that Trump asked Australia to help William Barr investigate the origin of the Robert Mueller report. Seriously, no one seems to be talking about that, bruh. The truth is, the president of the United States spends a great deal of time working with other nations AGAINST the United States. Frankly, it’s fucking frightening, son.

Now, despite everything I’ve just written, impeaching Trump may still be a bad idea. Why? Because the Senate won’t do a cotdamn thing, man. On the real, no matter what that lunatic does, they sit idly by, fam. So, thanks to their inactivity, Trump is never reprimanded for his actions and he uses that to claim “vindication” for all of his fuckery. All I know is, when impeachment goes nowhere, it’s going to give Trump more ammunition to say “they tried to take me down and failed.” The way I see it, he’s going to have a grand ol’ time spinning these stories on the campaign trail, bruh.

In the end, this is what everyone needs to understand. Ultimately, as long as Trump has the Senate is his pocket, he’s untouchable. By and by, if they refuse to hold him accountable for anything he does, then he has no reason to behave differently. At the end of the day, the Senate has given Trump license to do whatever the fuck he wants, son. As long as that fact remains, all efforts to punish him will fail. It just is what it is, man. That is all. LC out.

Robert Mueller Can’t Please Everyone

So, let me be frank, son. Honestly, it’s amazing to see people’s reactions to situations when the outcome isn’t what they wanted. On the real, that assessment can be used for both the Democrats and the Republicans, man. The fact is, Robert Mueller plainly laid out his findings about Donald Trump and Russia. All in all, both sides are only mad because the truth isn’t enough to flatly push their respective agendas.

Ok, for those who missed it, Special Counsel Mueller testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Now, on paper, his testimony was supposed to shed light on his report regarding the Trump campaign, Russian interference, collusion and obstruction. In reality, both the Right and the Left were looking for tidbits to bolster their respective arguments about Trump’s presidency. The “problem” is, Mueller’s assertions don’t fit nicely in any particular box, fam.

Look, here’s the God‘s honest truth, bruh: Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election, members of Trump’s staff interacted with shady Russian motherfuckers and Trump actively tried to circumvent the subsequent investigation. Now, with all of that being said, both sides of the political landscape are unsatisfied, son. I mean, the Democrats are unsatisfied because they can’t just string Trump up and throw him in the ocean. The Republicans are unsatisfied because the obstruction cloud still hovers very firmly over 45. Basically, this is entire situation is grey when folks want it to be black and white.

Now, based on Mueller’s report and testimony, here’s what we know: Trump’s only saving grace is the fact that he’s a sitting president. Like, the Committee straight up asked Mueller if Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice once he left office. In response, Mueller said “yes,” man. So, I don’t know what else people want, fam. Listen, people wanted Mueller to get to the bottom of what happened and he did. Meaning, his part of the job is over, bruh. All I know is, the ball is, and has always been, in Congress‘ court. Shit, if they don’t want to do anything about Trump’s tomfoolery, then what is Mueller supposed to do, son?

In the end, I’ll tell everyone reading this what I told my wife. Ultimately, to me, the scariest part of this current climate is not the racism, classism or all-out bigotry. By and by, it’s the assault on the truth, man. All I can say is, partisanship used to be based on different sides arguing about what the facts mean. Now, people don’t even acknowledge that facts are facts, fam. At the end of the day, we know what Trump did, we know what his team did and we know what Russia did. However, that doesn’t seem to be enough to move the needle, bruh. *Sigh* That is all. LC out.

The Democrats F*cked Up With This Shutdown

So, I won’t lie, son. This post may not be popular with a number of people, man. In any case, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t keep it a buck, fam. With that being said, can we be honest for a second? Look, the Democrats fucked up, bruh. Listen, as the child of immigrants, I’m ALL about securing a place for people under DACA. However; a deal should not come at the expense of American citizens. All in all, fuck being politically correct, bruh. The bickering between Democrats and Republicans are affecting people’s lives, folks. This government shutdown is completely unnecessary.

Ok, before I continue, let me tell everyone a quick story. In 2013, I, along with a bunch of other people, was laid off by Citigroup. Moving on, because of my years of service, I was given a decent severance package and granted unemployment. Now, keep in mind, there was also a government shutdown that year. Because of this, my unemployment benefits were delayed for either two or three weeks. All I know is, that was a ROUGH period of time as an out-of-work dude with one child and a second one on the way.

Now, I told that story because I want people to understand some of the effects of a government shutdown. Look, outside of my situation, A LOT of folks are hit when things like this occur. Shit, just take a look at how many federal employees are furloughed while Congress fights amongst itself. Hell, it’s even more fucked up that our senators and representatives are STILL paid while the tomfoolery continues. All I can say is, there are REAL ramifications to a shutdown, son.

Look, I don’t want people to get my words misconstrued. I ABSOLUTELY want our DACA brethren to stay in the country. But, a few hundred thousand people shouldn’t potentially affect the lives of millions. Ok, yes, they’re on this land through no fault of their own, but the lives of citizens should take precedent, man. To make matters worse, Donald Trump and company are now pitching the idea of enabling the “nuclear option.” Meaning, they would change the rules so only 51 votes are needed to pass legislation instead of 60. By and by, since there are currently 51 Republicans in the Senate, they could essentially pass any bill they wanted, fam.

In the end, I just want people to be open-minded, bruh. Ultimately, I’m not a guy who’s only capable of seeing one side of an argument. It’s possible for me to want immigrants to stay AND to want the government to keep running. All in all, I just want folks to be honest about what’s happening around here. The Democrats just wanted to stick it to the Republicans and the plan backfired, son. Hopefully, the shutdown will end before more harm is done, man. That is all. LC out.

So… Net Neutrality, Huh?

So, this may be the end for this blog, son. Ok, yes, it may seem like I’m exaggerating, but after this net neutrality vote, I wouldn’t be surprised by anything, man. With that being said, everyone out there better enjoy my content while they can. All in all, thanks to the FCC and Ajit Pai, fair internet use may be coming to an end, fam. All I know is, this situation is yet another example of how Donald Trump‘s administration is trying to reshape the country in its image.

Ok, let me explain why everyone should be freaking out, bruh. Now, net neutrality was designed to keep broadband companies in check. The regulations prohibited companies from blocking websites, charging more for certain content or withholding high-quality service. Basically, net neutrality made sure that all content on the internet was given the same level of access. In any case, by shutting down net neutrality, the FCC has opened the door to companies controlling what people have access to and how much they can charge for it.

Look, I won’t lie, son. On the real, all of this shit is frightening, man. I mean, look at it this way, fam. Trump and the GOP have already been on a crusade to discredit the media and any other entity that speaks against them. Now, they’re putting the pieces in place to potentially stop people from accessing certain information. Bruh, they’re literally setting the stage to control what the citizens know and don’t know. Real talk, if anyone out there isn’t scared then they MUST NOT be paying attention!

Listen, at this point, I’m not sure about how to stop this, son. From what I understand, several states are planning to sue the FCC if this repeal actually goes into effect. In addition, several organizations are calling upon Congress to block this decision. In the end, I’m not sure if any of these tactics will work, but we need to try anyway, man. Ultimately, we can’t let our government dictate our access to information. By and by, that’s EXACTLY how they can assert a level of control that we wouldn’t be able to combat, man. *Sigh* These are fucking DANGEROUS times, fam! Keeping it a buck, we all need to keep our heads on a swivel, bruh. That is all. LC out.
