Randi B. & LC: The Presidential Election, Eva Longoria, Jeezy & Gucci Mane

What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the presidential election, Eva Longoria, Jeezy and Gucci Mane. It evolved into a conversation that included a variety of other topics. Check it out on YouTube below. Let’s go!

Fake News Can’t Save Donald Trump

So, we’re finally here. After four years of NONSTOP SHENANIGANS, Donald Trump is about to lose his job. Now, even though we’re still waiting on the final tally from Georgia and North Carolina, Joe Biden already has enough electoral votes to become the President-elect. However, regardless of the inevitability, Trump is refusing to go quietly. Then again, I can’t say that I’m surprised, son. I mean, I never expected Trump to accept his fate. But, if there’s one thing that I know, fake news can’t save him, man.

Ok, for those who’ve been living in a bunker, Joe Biden has been elected President. Now, as it currently stands, Biden has garnered 290 electoral votes, 20 more than the 270 needed to secure the win. The wild part is, we still don’t have the total numbers from GA and PA. In any case, if the current trend continues, the final count will be 306 electoral votes for Biden and 229 electoral votes for Trump. By comparison, the difference in electoral votes would match the number that Trump reached to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. All in all, America said fuck youuuuu and go hoooooome to President Orange.

Now, despite the obvious loss, Trump is trying to do what he’s done his entire Presidency: lie. Without any substantiated evidence, he’s out here claiming widespread voter fraud and his supporters are eating it up. For the most part, Trump believes that mail-in voting is the devil (despite the fact that the GOP has long-benefited from the practice). Funny thing is, in Trump’s world, fraud only happened in the states where he lost. What are the odds, huh? Like, this is the same man who wanted everyone to stop counting votes in states where he had a lead and keep counting votes in states where he was trailing. On the real, it’s just shameless tomfoolery, fam. The problem is, his gullible fan base simply accepts whatever he says, bruh.

In the end, Donald Trump just needs to face the music, son. Ultimately, this is one time when his spin tactics won’t work, man. By and by, math is undefeated, fam. At the end of the day, his denials are right on brand, bruh. Shit, when it came to COVID-19, he denied science for the entire year. Of COURSE he would deny math now. Womp womp. You’re fired, bitch! LC out.

I Don’t Want To Hear Sh*t About Polls

So, like I always say, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. Essentially, I don’t want to hear shit about polls, son. Real talk, I don’t think people have learned anything from the 2016 Presidential Election. Now, if anyone needs a reminder, here’s how it went: right up until voting day, Hillary Clinton was leading Donald Trump in basically all of the national polls. Well, we all know how that story ended, man.

With all of that being said, don’t talk to me about Joe Biden‘s lead in the national polls right now. The way I see it, this is the same false sense of security that individuals had four years ago. Frankly, I don’t give a flying fuckity-fuck about what a small faction of Americans said in a poll. One, they could be lying their asses off. Two, these folks aren’t representative of the entire country. So, throw all of these cotdamn polls in the garbage, fam.

In the end, everyone needs to just go out and vote, bruh. Ultimately, until we actually submit our ballots, all of this auxiliary talk is for the birds, son. By and by, I’m sure everyone already knows how I feel. At the end of the day, we need to get Trump’s goofy ass the fuck up outta here, man. VOTE! That is all. LC out.

Randi B. & LC: The Presidential Debate, COVID-19 & Breonna Taylor

What’s good, brethren? On this (delayed) episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the presidential debate, COVID-19 and Breonna Taylor. It evolved into a conversation that included too many other topics to name. Check it out on YouTube below. Let’s go!

I’m Voting For Biden & Harris, But…

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m fully aware of the fact that I’m going to piss some people off with this post. However, I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t objective, man. Now, with that being said, I don’t like this trend that I’m seeing among people. There’s this idea that we can’t critique folks and still support them. All I can say is, this presidential election has REALLY highlighted this phenomenon. I mean, the need to remove Donald Trump has been so strong, we’ve been willing to settle for whoever has been presented to us. In any case, while I definitely intend to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in November, I reserve the right to question some of their past actions.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, Biden recently announced that he wants Harris to be his running mate in the upcoming election. Now, this news has splintered segments of the internet. On one hand, a lot of people are excited that a Black woman is in this position for the first time in history. Frankly, from a political standpoint, Harris is more than qualified for the job. On the other hand, there are a number of folks who have The Rock eyebrow about the combo of Biden and Harris. All I know is, both sides have a legitimate point, fam.

Look, when we’re talking about Biden and Harris, they both have questionable moments in their history. Now, when it comes to Biden, look no further than the 1994 Crime Bill. Whether we’re speaking on longer prison sentences or the commission of more prisons, the bill was devastating for the Black community. Shit, the entire Bill Clinton administration built its “tough on crime” rep on the backs of countless minorities, bruh. So, I don’t understand why cats get upset when people bring that up. Like, it actually happened, son. It’s a hat that Biden has to wear. Plain and simple.

Now, in regards to Harris, she had an “interesting” run as a prosecutor in California. To be fair, she wasn’t some demon spawn who fucked over everyone she came across. However, there were numerous moments in her career that were troubling, son. Real talk, her office did a terrible job of protecting the rights of wrongfully convicted people. Her office also did a suspect job of investigating misconduct from various law enforcement officials. In both cases, she alleged that she wasn’t always aware of the actions of some of the individuals in her office. Either way, that’s not an acceptable answer, man.

In the end, I know what a lot of people may be thinking right now, fam. “LC, we don’t have time for this shit. We’re trying to get Trump out of office.” Ultimately, that is absolutely correct, fam. By and by, when November 3rd hits, I’ll be at the polls selecting Biden and Harris. But, I’m still a firm believer in calling out our elected officials. At the end of the day, they’re asking for OUR vote. Meaning, we should be able to question moments from their past. The way I see it, this “all or nothing” attitude that some people have spits in the face of objectivity. Keeping it a buck, these people are being chosen to support OUR needs. So, we need to make sure that we’re ALWAYS holding them accountable. That is all. LC out.

Herman Cain Died Over Politics

So, before I even begin, let me make one thing clear: I’m not here to speak ill of the dead. I’m not here to say “I told you so” or gloat about someone’s misfortune. If anything, Herman Cain‘s death highlights the sickness of bipartisanship in this country. I mean, people are so entrenched in this Left and Right bullshit that they’ll cut off their nose to spite their face. All in all, Cain’s death was potentially avoidable and all of our elected officials need to be held accountable for their tomfoolery.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Herman Cain, former presidential candidate and successful business executive, just died from the coronavirus. Now, there’s no way to definitively determine where he contracted the virus, but anyone with a brain can make an educated guess. So, back on June 20th, Donald Trump had his infamous rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In any case, outside of the fact that Trump held a rally at the site of the Black Wall Street massacre a day after Juneteenth, this event was notable for another reason. Essentially, everyone took pride in not wearing masks and not socially distancing.

Look, in the days leading up to the rally, Cain took to Twitter to disavow any mask mandates. Nine days later, he was diagnosed with the virus and ended up in an Atlanta hospital. Fast forward a month, he succumbed to the illness. Now, here’s my beef with this entire situation, son. Real talk, Cain died because of politics, man. Somehow, a health crisis became a bipartisan issue. So, instead of everyone taking the proper precautions to keep themselves safe, some folks are simply adhering to empty and dangerous rhetoric.

Fam, I understand that people want the country to get back up and running. Shit, I’m going through serious Jiu Jitsu withdrawal right now. But, I understand that these minor inconveniences are for the greater good. Like, bruh, seriously, is wearing a mask the worst fucking thing in the world? Is not going to a bar the worst fucking thing in the world? How did we become so fractured as a nation that quarantining can drive people insane? How did there become two sides to a cotdamn sickness? *Sigh* Cats are really dying because of allegiances to a political party and Cain is proof of that.

In the end, regardless of whether I agreed with him or not, rest in peace to Herman Cain. Ultimately, this was such a senseless and unnecessary way to go. By and by, I hope this is a lesson to everyone out there. At the end of the day, we better not let politics be the death of us. That is all. LC out.

How Can The Government Afford To Give Everyone $1,000?

So, before I even begin, let me say that I already know the answer to the question that I asked above. Frankly, I just think it’s quite funny that the United States government is getting into its socialism bag in order to help average Americans. Now, don’t get me wrong, son. On the real, I’m part of a family of four (going on five). Meaning, I’ll take that direct deposit, if they’re offering (without strings). However, it’s truly interesting that Donald Trump and company can find the money for this, after we’ve been told for eons that they can’t cover the basic needs we’ve been demanding.

Ok, for those who missed it, in response to the fallout from the coronavirus, the government is looking to give the American people a relief payment. So, according to reports, the plan is to give each adult $1,000 and each child $500. So, in a case like mine, my family would get roughly $3,000. Now, to be fair, I’m not against this idea at all. In fact, given the scores of people who’ve already lost their jobs and/or face other financial hardships, I believe this is a good move. But, I’d be lying if I said that I was taken aback by this sudden “generosity.” The truth is, anytime a politician or a pundit asks for more government assistance, their views are shunned.

Look, let’s be real, man. Shit, how long has Andrew Yang been preaching about a universal basic income? How long has Bernie Sanders talked about Medicare for All and eliminating student debt? Honestly, I’m not even here to discuss their feasibility. In fact, I’m just here to respond to people who’ve said that we couldn’t afford it as a country. Listen, we always find money for the military and now we’re magically finding money for this stimulus package. So, are Sanders and Yang actually crazy? Or, are they just being realistic about how much money the government has to play with?

In the end, I’m not here to endorse Sanders or Yang or any other candidate, for the matter. Ultimately, I’m just pointing out the fact that the government has us fooled about how much they could actually help the people. By and by, I’m not the guy who thinks that everything should be free for everyone. But, I do believe that us “common folk” shoulder way more weight than we should, fam. At the end of the day, don’t let the powers that be front like they ain’t got it, bruh. Yes, they fucking do, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Andrew Gillum Is Out Here Wilin’

*Sigh* Brother, brother, brother. What in the plum fuckity-fuck has Andrew Gillum been doing out here, son? I mean, I’m not one of those people who believes that politicians are saints. In fact, if anybody has ever read this blog, they’d know that I think the majority of them are full of shit. However, folks need to do a better job of hiding their tomfoolery, man. The truth is, I’m baffled by the situation that Gillum has found himself in, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Gillum is in a world of shit right now. So, this past Thursday, he was found in a hell of a predicament. Now, according to reports, Gillum was discovered in a Miami Beach hotel with two other people (including a male escort who overdosed) and three bags of crystal meth. That’s right, the man who narrowly lost to Ron DeSantis by less than a percent for Governor of Florida was found in all types of compromising positions, bruh. Needless to say, I’d bet that it’s pretty much a wrap for his political career, son.

Now, as of today, Gillum is entering rehab for “alcohol abuse.” According to him, he started drinking heavily after his defeat to DeSantis. But, he denies using meth and hasn’t really said shit about the escort who was tripping on that Walter White. All in all, I really don’t know what to say, man. The fact is, as a Black guy, I’m especially disappointed when one of our own is caught up in some fuckery. Frankly, our numbers are small in these spaces, so we don’t have time for dudes to mess up the bag for everyone else, fam.

In the end, I hope that Gillum gets his shit together, bruh. Ultimately, he had a lot of potential, but I don’t see how any voter base could root for him after this. By and by, a few bags of Heisenberg isn’t worth an entire career, son. Sadly, Andrew Gillum had to learn this the hard way, man. *Sigh* Another one bites the dust, fam. That is all. LC out.

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.

Chris Matthews: Another One Bites The Dust

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’ve always thought that Chris Matthews and Bill O’Reilly were the same person. I mean, they’re both loudmouthed and opinionated political commentators who refuse to let their guests speak. In addition, MSNBC and Fox News are essentially two sides of the same coin. With all of that being said, I’m not in the least bit surprised that Matthews and O’Reilly also have sexual harassment in common. All in all, the Me Too movement has officially gotten another member of the press the fuck outta here.

Ok, for those who missed it, after hosting Hardball with Chris Matthews since 1997, Matthews abruptly resigned on air. Side note, I’m using the word “resigned” loosely, son. In actuality, MSNBC told him to go kick rocks, man. Now, despite engaging in copious amounts of fuckery (such as likening Bernie Sanders‘ movement to the Nazi invasion of France), Matthews’ comments about women are what got his ass in trouble. Apparently, he’s been saying all manners of tomfoolery to women for years.

Now, things came to a head when Laura Bassett, a writer for GQ, detailed her experience with Matthews. As the story goes, she decided to speak up after she saw how Matthews talked to Elizabeth Warren on-air. From there, Bassett described a situation from 2016 where Matthews repeatedly made comments about Bassett’s attractiveness and wanting to fall in love with her. Needless to say, she ain’t like any of that shit, fam. In any case, Bassett isn’t the first woman to allege that Matthews has said some fuckity-fuck shit to them. All I can say is, this seems to have been a pattern for eons, bruh. Side note, he once made a joke about giving Hillary Clinton a “Bill Cosby pill” before an interview. Yeeeeah, that’s not something that should ever be said, brethren.

Moving on, after all of the stories (and to the surprise of his co-hosts), Matthews quit his show on live television. All I know is, we can add his name to the likes of O’Reilly, Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose who’ve had to bend the knee to their own shenanigans. Once again, I don’t understand why this behavior is even an issue, son. Like, is it really that hard to determine if a woman is open to advances? For God‘s sake, why is this so hard for some dudes to understand? The way I see it, there is NO reason for most of these cats to get caught up in the bullshit that they do. *Sigh* Another one bites the dust, man.

In the end, I can’t necessarily say that I’ll miss Chris Matthews. Ultimately, I feel like he’s another symptom of the machine, bruh. By and by, I may watch cable news, but I take everything with a grain of salt, son. At the end of the day, I don’t need “journalists” to explain the news to me. Just tell me what happened and let me come to my own conclusion, man. Also, fellow men, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: find women who are actually interested. Don’t say “nice tits,” Michael Bloomberg. Don’t prematurely confess “love,” Chris Matthews. *Sigh* Knock the goofy shit off, people. That is all. LC out.
