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!

Donald Trump Fleeced The IRS

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not surprised about Donald Trump‘s taxes. If anything, The New York Times‘ article confirmed two things that I already knew: our tax system is a joke and Trump isn’t NEARLY as successful as he pretends to be. In any case, this may some crazy, but I’m not even that mad at Trump. Honestly, I find all of this funnier than I probably should, man. The fact of the matter is, he was able to fleece the IRS because the system is fucking broken. Or, rather, it’s working exactly the way it was designed for the 1 Percent.

Ok, for those who missed it, The Times just exposed like two decades of Trump’s tax returns. Now, as expected, there are shenanigans galore, fam. Essentially, in 10 of the last 15 years, Trump hadn’t paid ANY federal taxes. In addition, in two of those other years, he only paid $750 each year. Yes, that’s correct, bruh. Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, paid these same United States $1500 in taxes across two years. In addition, he’s continually claimed losses and even collected a $72.9 million refund once. All in all, Trump’s finances are chock-full of all manners of fuckery, son.

Now, just in case people don’t understand how absurd this is, attorney Max Kennerly compared Trump’s 2017 tax return to Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. During that year, Biden paid the government about $3.7 million. Harris paid roughly $500K, Sanders paid $300K and Warren paid $270K. So, the man who’s leading the “free world” and supposedly more successful than his competitors is paying EXPONENTIALLY less than everyone else. Frankly, it’s disgusting, man.

All I know is, THIS type of shit is why there’s a backlash against capitalism and the wealthy. The truth is, A LOT of these motherfuckers just don’t pay their fair share, fam. I mean, it’d be one thing if they paid their taxes and gave their employees a decent wage. Instead, they bleed the average American dry AND leave us to carry the country’s tax burden. Keeping it a buck, Trump may be one of the most egregious examples, but he’s FAR from the only one who takes advantage of this system.

In the end, what else do people need to know, bruh? Ultimately, a number of Trump supporters voted for him because he’s “good for business.” By and by, this false narrative “allowed” them to look past the blatant racism and xenophobia. However, the numbers are cut and dry, son. He ruined a good economy, which he inherited, AND he’s been losing money for EONS. At the end of the day, EVERYONE knows what they need to do in November, man. Fuck this guy, fam. That is all. LC out.

Randi B. & LC: Kamala Harris, Being Woke & The Electoral College

What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about Kamala Harris, being woke and the Electoral College. It evolved into a conversation that included Joe Biden, Beyoncé, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, gun rights and the Coronavirus. Check it out on YouTube below. Yessir!

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.

Randi B. & LC: Joe Biden, Beyoncé & Educating Non-Black Folk

What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about Joe Biden, Beyoncé‘s Black Is King and educating non-Black people about Black issues. It evolved into a conversation that included missing simple pleasures during quarantine and the upcoming Fred Hampton movie, Judas and the Black Messiah. Check it out on YouTube below. Let’s go!

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.
