Catch These Hands: Donald Trump & Joe Biden Edition

Son, what world are we living in right now? I mean, what’s really good with our country when our elected officials are offering each other the fade? Look, at this point, I’m not pointing the finger at Donald Trump over Joe Biden. All in all, both of these old ass dudes are ridiculous for trying to square up with each other. Shit, can these fuckity-fucks just do what they’ve been elected to do?

Ok, for those who missed it, Biden was giving a speech at the University of Miami. Now, while speaking about Trump’s Access Hollywood comments, Biden stated that, in high school, he would’ve taken Trump “behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.” *Sigh* The former Vice President of the United States, ladies and gentlemen! First off, not only is a 75-year-old man talking about what he’d do in high school, but he’s also talking about engaging in fisticuffs. Good Lord, is that how we handle politics now? Listen, if that were the case, then just let a boxer or an MMA fighter run for office, son.

In any case, OF COURSE Trump had to respond, man. Now, in true President Orange fashion, Trump tweeted that Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way.” Word? Trump is fluent in the art of the beatdown? Fam, if these dudes don’t get the FUCK outta here, bruh! Real talk, who are any of these dudes fooling, people? Keeping it a buck, I can’t believe this is how politicians are addressing issues in 2018. On the real, jabs and hooks are how we solve issues in middle school, folks. By and by, this is not how I want Washington to fix its problems, son.

In the end, fuck all of the dumb shit, man. Ultimately, someone needs to tell these guys to grow up, fam. I mean, not only are these dudes running the government, but they’re also old as fuck. In addition, since neither one of them have actually seen any war, I don’t want to hear any of the tough guy talk, bruh. Everybody just needs to knock it off, son. That is all. LC out.


Teachers Don’t Need Guns

So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. Listen, teachers don’t need guns, man! Hell, their jobs are stressful enough as it is, fam! Are we really going to add “armed bodyguard” to their résumé, bruh? Look, outside of all of the Second Amendment talk, there are a variety of reasons why teachers shouldn’t be armed. With that being said, let’s go through some of them.

Ok, let’s start with Dennis Alexander, son. Now, for those who are unaware, Alexander is a teacher at Seaside High School in Monterey County, California. Anyway, in addition to being an instructor, Alexander is also a reserve police officer. So, on face value, he is the type of “gun-trained teacher” that Donald Trump wants. Moving on, let’s talk about what Alexander did the other day. Apparently, while giving a safety class, he pointed a loaded gun at the ceiling and accidentally fired it. From there, some debris hit a male student and he sustained some minor injuries.

Now, I’m totally happy that the kid wasn’t actually shot or harmed any further. However; this is the type of shit students don’t need in school, man! Listen, as a father, I’m sending my kids to school to learn. Shit, it’s bad enough that kids are going around shooting their own classmates. I don’t want to have to worry about a teacher hurting my child too, fam. Good fucking Lord, this is ridiculous, bruh! This isn’t what school is about, folks! On the real, if institutions are so dangerous that everyone needs to be strapped, then I might as well homeschool my kids, people.

Moving on, let’s address the naysayers who might conclude that Alexander’s blunder is just an isolated incident. Now, if no one out there is moved by my argument, let’s talk about the general plight of teachers. Look, in general, teachers are overworked and underpaid. Hell, instructors in West Virginia had to go on a full strike in order to get a 5 percent pay raise, son. So, we can’t pay them but we expect them to defend the school? On top of that, how long do we think it’ll take before someone points a gun at a student they have an issue with? Listen, I’ve seen A TON of videos of teachers assaulting kids, especially Black ones. Do we really think a gunshot is that far out of the realm of possibility?

In the end, can we stop the tomfoolery, man? Ultimately, we should worry about paying teachers their fair share instead of arming them. By and by, I truly don’t see any positives to this idea, fam. *Sigh* This country loves guns so much that they don’t care who gets hurt. At the end of the day, I do believe we have a right to arm ourselves. However; that right should also come with some basic common sense, bruh. When it’s all said and done, that’s the only thing that reasonable people are really asking for, folks. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Ain’t Help Black Unemployment

*Sigh* Fuckery like this is why I box, son. I mean, it’s much better for me to hit a heavy bag than hit a stupid person, man. On the real, it’s truly frustrating to watch Donald Trump and company just mangle information, fam. Like, Trump invented the phrase “fake news,” but literally EVERYTHING that comes out of his mouth is a GROSS inaccuracy. Case in point, his take on the unemployment numbers of Black Americans. All in all, if anyone actually believes that Trump is responsible for our progress, then they’re more fraudulent than Melania Trump‘s work visa.

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is engaged in a feud with Jay-Z. Now, Hov recently did an interview with Van Jones on CNN. This was part of Jones’s new show, the Van Jones Show. In any case, while speaking about a variety of topics, Trump’s name came up. As expected, Jay criticized 45 for his consistent nonsense. Furthermore, during a convo about unemployment, Hov said that “money doesn’t equate to happiness” and that the President fails to treat people like human beings. With all of that being said, Trump reacted as expected and let the guns go on Twitter. In a response to Jay, Trump claimed that Black unemployment is at an all-time low and we should all be thanking him.

Now, is Trump correct? Is Black unemployment at an all-time low? Well, at 6.8%, Black unemployment is the lowest it’s been in nearly five decades. Anyway, does Trump deserve credit for that? FUCK NO, SON! Good fucking Lord, is the GOP going to keep pretending like Barack Obama didn’t exist? Look, back in 2010, Black unemployment was at 16.8%. Over the next seven years, the rate consistently declined. As a matter of fact, by the time Trump entered the White House, the rate was already down to 7.8%. Meaning, during Obama’s presidency, the percentage went down by 9 points. So, Trump had literally NOTHING to do with the downward trend, man! Real talk, he doesn’t get to claim Obama’s progress, fam! Fuck ALL of that, bruh!

In the end, I have nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, I’m just tired of all of the political bullshit, man. Keeping it a buck, the only reason shit like this bothers me is because there are hoards of people who don’t know any better. Frankly, they just take anything Trump says as gospel. By and by, change will never be made in this country because truth is no longer a real concept. At the end of the day, it’s all about who can spin their story better. *Sigh* Sometimes, I just hate everything and everyone, fam. 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.

Donald Trump’s Sh*thole Of Racism

*Sigh* I don’t even want to do this, son. Like, I really had to battle with myself about writing this post, man. In any case, my conscience wouldn’t let me cook if I stayed silent through Donald Trump‘s latest episode of fuckery. With that being said, let me go Super Saiyan on President Orange for what he said about Haiti and Africa. *Sigh* And here… we… go!

So, let’s get straight to the fuckity-fuck shit, fam. Apparently, during a White House meeting on immigration, Trump decided to THOROUGHLY disrespect Haiti and Africa. As reported by The New York Times, when a deal was presented that included protections for folks from both places, Trump wanted to know why America accepts people from “shithole countries.” Now, to add insult to injury, he wondered why we don’t except more people from places like Norway. Yeah, these are real comments, bruh.

Now, let’s unpack all of the different ways this is egregiously insulting, son. First, there’s the clear racial aspect, man. Look, in Trump’s own words, he’d prefer folks from a predominantly White country as opposed to mostly Black nations. Shit, based on that statement alone, we can clearly see that immigration isn’t really the problem, fam. Nah, people of color are seen as the problem, bruh. Basically, this is yet ANOTHER example of Trump’s CLEAR racism, folks. I mean, his bigotry is so obvious that I almost have to respect the blatancy of it, people.

Next, let’s talk about this unfounded categorization of Haitians and Africans. For one, immigrants from African nations are renowned for having a high percentage of advanced degrees. Hell, if we look at Nigerians alone, nearly 40% have bachelor’s degrees and almost 20% have master’s degrees. Now, for anyone keeping score, that’s the highest percentage of any racial group in this country.

Moving on, let’s talk about Haiti, son. Listen, when it comes to Haiti, their citizens have endured some of the greatest tribulations in human history. Look, despite being the only Black community to free themselves from slavery, their actions came with a cost, man. Real talk, Haiti had to pay France the equivalent of $21 billion to be recognized as a sovereign nation. Now, when we add on the treachery of the Duvalier family and the devastating earthquake in 2010, we’re looking at a country that’s never caught a break, fam. With all of that being said, why is the American President deriding a whole group of people for their own misfortune? Jesus, this man has NO fucking couth at all!

In the end, I’m never surprised by the tomfoolery that comes out of Trump’s mouth. Frankly, I’m just still shocked that proponents always find a way to justify his actions. Hell, while watching Fox News (because I hate myself), I literally watched Ann Coulter say that all Haitians do is fill up our prisons. Ultimately, the consistent and intentional misrepresentation of people of color is tiring, bruh. All in all, fuck America, son! That is all. LC out.

I Don’t Want Celebrities Running For President

So, I won’t lie, son. I can already see some of the angry responses I might get for this post, man. However; I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t keep it a buck, fam. Look, Oprah Winfrey don’t need to be the damn President, bruh! In fact, NO celebrity needs to be the President, people! Listen, even though I believe Donald Trump is insane, I also believe he’s shown us that we need experience in the Oval Office. Shit, I can’t even be a computer repairman without some experience. With that being said, why should we shirk credibility for the highest job in the land?

Ok, before I continue, let me make one thing clear, son. On the real, I have nothing against Oprah, man. I mean, her influence in media goes without saying. So, there’s no way I can hate on anyone who’s accomplished as much as she has. However; what the fuckity-fuck does Oprah know about government, fam? Look, we’re not talking about the community board, fam. We’re talking about President of the United States! Real talk, when did it become cool for a novice to be the most powerful person in the world? I swear, Trump has truly, TRULY ruined politics, bruh.

Look, let’s be honest for a second, folks. Celebrities are only talking about running because the bar has been lowered. Hell, I’m sure the average celeb believes they’re more sane than Trump, so that means they could hold office. However; President Orange was never qualified in the first place, son. So, he should NEVER be a comparison point for any of these other famous people. With that being said, Oprah isn’t qualified to be President, The Rock isn’t qualified to be President and neither is Kanye West. For the love of God, please leave our elected offices to people who have at least ran a district before! All in all, the madness needs to stop, man!

In the end, can we chill with the shenanigans, fam? Ultimately, car salesmen don’t need to build cars and television personalities don’t need to be President. By and by, Oprah has all of the power in the world and can pull the strings behind the scene. That doesn’t mean she has the first clue about how to run the country. All I know is, she helped Barack Obama and she can help another qualified candidate. Now, if she wants to join local politics and then move up, I can jive with that. However; the White House off the rip? No thanks. 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.
