Uh, Shout-out To Taylor Swift

So, I won’t lie, son. It’s super easy to hate on Taylor Swift, man. I mean, she’s made a career out of dissing ex-boyfriends and being fake humble, fam. All I can say is, that ain’t the type of vibe I regularly endorse, bruh. In any case, I have to give credit where credit is due. Normally, when someone has a platform as huge as hers, they steer clear of ALL political discussions. However, instead of running from her influence, Swift has decided to use her name in a positive way. All in all, salute to Swift, brethren!

Ok, for those who missed it, Swift took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Now, while her tax bracket might suggest some Republican ties, she actually took the time to endorse some Democratic candidates. Then again, it’s not necessarily about whether she’s a Democrat or a Republican. Frankly, she simply doesn’t bang with Marsha Blackburn, a GOP candidate running for Senate in Tennessee. Anyway, instead of just being a contrarian for the sake of it, Swift actually explained why she doesn’t rock with Blackburn. For one, she pointed to Blackburn’s views on women and gay rights. Furthermore, Swift actually brought up systemic racism in America, something I NEVER thought I’d see from her.

Moving on, Swift gave her support for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. Needless to say, a lot of people, including myself, were shocked that she made such a public declaration. Shit, in 2018, who would’ve thought that Swift would be out here talking about racism while Kanye West is busy giving Donald Trump a dick-flute solo? *Sigh* These are strange fucking times we live in, son. Strange times indeed.

In the end, shout-out to Taylor Swift, man. Hell, even though I’ve never given her any props before, I guess there’s a first time for everything, fam. Ultimately, I agree most with one point she made: “vote based on who most closely represents your values.” By and by, that doesn’t have shit to do with party lines, bruh. Now, everybody, get out there and vote on November 6! That is all. LC out.

It Better Be A Wrap For Brett Kavanaugh

Look, I’m going to try and keep this short today, son. Now, anytime I say that, I always seem to end up rambling. Nevertheless, I don’t know how much more there is to say, man. Frankly, the Senate needs to get Brett Kavanaugh the fuck outta here, fam. On the real, after Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony, I 100% believe that Kavanaugh did that shit, bruh. With that being said, this dude is wholly unfit to sit anywhere near the Supreme Court, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Ford came with that ether yesterday. Now, while being questioned under oath, Ford made it perfectly clear that she has no doubts about who sexually assaulted her. Listen, not only was she positive about Kavanaugh’s identity, she also revealed that his friend, Mark Judge, was in the room when the incident took place. Real talk, this is important because of another detail she remembered. Apparently, a couple of weeks after the assault, she ran into Judge during his shift at a supermarket. This is notable because he spoke about his days working there in his own memoir. So, he inadvertently corroborated the validity of her memory, son.

On the flip side, Kavanaugh had a complete meltdown when it was his time to talk. All I know is, all of the “witch hunt” accusations haven’t debunked Ford’s story, man. Keeping it a buck, she’s really backed the GOP into a corner, fam. Shit, while watching Fox News, it was clear that none of the anchors wanted to call her a liar. Instead, they said shit like “we believe that she believes this story.” Meaning, they’re still holding out hope that they can spin the “it happened but it wasn’t Kavanaugh who assaulted her” narrative. All I can say is, nobody with a brain will believe that, bruh.

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here, son. Hell, even the American Bar Association wants the vote on Kavanaugh to be postponed, man. Listen, how can a man serve on the Supreme Court if he ain’t got a damn license, fam? Exactly. Ultimately, the Republicans can try to dodge this all they want to, bruh. At the end of the day, no one will be comfortable with Kavanaugh until a REAL investigation is conducted, people. By and by, it better be a wrap for him, brethren. Get his problematic ass away from our highest court. 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.

Alabama Made The Right Decision

So, let me keep it a buck here, son. The Senate election in Alabama wasn’t about the Left versus the Right, man. This election wasn’t about the Democrats versus the Republicans. Frankly, this election was about right versus clear-cut wrong, fam. Look, if Alabama actually put Roy Moore in Congress, then they would’ve put a racist pedophile in an elected office. With that being said, Doug Jones was DEFINITELY the better choice, bruh. All in all, I’m just glad that Alabama didn’t do what I thought they were gonna do.

Ok, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain how horrible of a person Moore is, son. I mean, I’ve already detailed his history of pedophilia and sexual abuse. In any case, he also has a strong, STRONG background of racism, man. Shit, just the other day, he got outed for saying that America was better when we had slavery. Somehow, Moore asserted that the family unit was stronger during a time when slaves didn’t have the right to have families. I… I didn’t even know how to respond to that when I heard it, fam.

Listen, the fact that Moore was even in this race says EVERYTHING about our country, bruh. Hell, I was watching MSNBC last night and there was a poll that said that 55% of Alabama voters didn’t care about the allegations against Moore. Good Lord, that’s fucking insane, son! On the real, these folks are so dedicated to the GOP that they were WILLFULLY looking the other way to Moore’s pedophilia. Real talk, that’s fucking FRIGHTENING, man! All I can say is, political allegiance is damn near as dangerous as religious zealotry, fam.

Now, with all of that being said, America needs to thank Black people… again. Taking it a step further, the country needs to thank Black women specifically, bruh. Based on the final voting numbers, Black women represented 18% of the total vote and 97% of them voted for Jones. In addition, Black men represented 12% of the total vote and 92% of them also voted for Jones. Basically, Black people saved everyone’s ass, son. All I know is, the Senate dynamic just got A LOT more interesting, man. Keeping it a buck, Congress desperately needs this balancing act, fam.

In the end, fuck Roy Moore, fuck Steve Bannon and fuck Donald Trump (word to YG). Ultimately, this nation has a TON of problems, but electing a racist pedophile shouldn’t be one of them, bruh. By and by, I’m just relieved that this race didn’t go a different way, son. Look, I know this country jumped the shark a long time ago. However; a Moore candidacy was nothing short of preposterous, man. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Chose Sexual Assault Over Liberalism

Now, before I begin, let me make one thing clear: this post isn’t about political allegiance, son. Frankly, I don’t give a fuck if someone is liberal or conservative, man. On the real, everyone has the right to believe whatever they believe, fam. However; political idealism should NEVER spit in the face of basic human decency, bruh. With that being said, what Donald Trump is doing right now is disgusting, folks. All in all, I don’t give a shit what political party he belongs to. Backing Roy Moore in any capacity is just wrong, people!

So, how did we get here? Let’s recap, son. Basically, the Alabama-based Roy Moore is running for a Senate seat. In actuality, he’s running for the seat that was vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became the Attorney General. Along the way, nine women have come out and alleged that Moore made numerous unwanted sexual advances. Even worse, damn near all of these women alleged that the situations occurred when they were teenagers. By and by, when the alleged assaults took place, the women were between 14 and 22 years old. Now, this essentially means that Roy Moore is a pedophile, man!

As expected, most of the GOP has distanced itself from Moore. Prominent Republicans like Mitch McConnell, John McCain and Mitt Romney have called for Moore to drop out of the Senate race. Side note, I truly believe that a lot of these Republicans are only taking this step because they want Luther Strange instead. Real talk, that was their preferred pick in the first place, fam. All I know is, if that’s their only motivation for doing the right thing, then I’m thoroughly repulsed, bruh. In any case, no one is on Moore’s side, folks. Well, except Trump and Steve Bannon.

Look, this clown Trump really came to Moore’s defense, son. In his mind, since Moore said the allegations are false, then they must be false, man. In addition, Trump stated that the Senate doesn’t need a liberal in there. That was literally his only critique of Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate. So, let me get this straight, fam. A pedophile is better than a liberal? Has bipartisanship really gotten this skewed, bruh?! Good fucking Lord, folks! Our entire political system has jumped the shark! We’ve actually reached a point where political allegiance is stronger than our need to stop sexual predators! I… I have no words!

In the end, Trump reminds me daily that we’re fucked as a nation. Like, we absolutely fucked, son! Keeping it a buck, if Moore actually secures that Senate seat, then we might have to burn down the country and start over. Seriously, our politicians can’t be this far gone, man! Listen, my brain truly can’t handle the fuckery, fam! I… *Sigh* I’ve got nothing else, bruh. LC out.

Thanks A Lot, John McCain

Man, the GOP never ceases to amaze me, son. I mean, they are just hell bent on getting rid of a healthcare system that’s actually helping people. On the real, who needs a replacement plan, right? Let’s just repeal the current law with NO hope of finding a substitute. Listen, that’s basically what the Republicans are doing right now, fam. Like, they can’t get a bill of their own passed, but still “need” to destroy the Affordable Care Act. All I know is, John McCain is no better than the rest of his constituents. All in all, thanks for nothing, McCain.

So, before I continue, let me be clear about something. I have nothing but respect for McCain’s service to this country. Nothing can take away from the fact that he’s a war hero. In addition, before he made the MONUMENTAL ERROR of choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate, I wasn’t entirely mad at his previous presidential bid. With that being said, I can’t condone his fuck shit in regards to healthcare. For a man who’s supposed to be a “maverick,” he’s essentially choosing his party over the American people.

Now, for those who are unaware, the Senate had an emergency healthcare vote yesterday. The wild thing is, they weren’t voting on a replacement plan. Why? Because they don’t fucking have one, man! Instead, they just voted to begin debate on repealing ACA. Meaning, these clowns are determined to get rid of Barack Obama‘s plan, despite the fact that they have nothing to offer. Ultimately, the vote passed 51-50, with Mike Pence serving as the tiebreaker.

To make matters worse, after his ridiculous vote, McCain still stated he wouldn’t vote for the proposed GOP bill. So, why the FUCK did he make this vote, bruh?! That doesn’t make any sense, fam! He admitted that they have no plan and he admitted that ACA’s popularity is rising while Republicans fumble the ball. By and by, this administration would rather burn down the establishment than admit that no one wants what they’re selling. Fam, I truly don’t understand how ANY of these politicians sleep at night.

In the end, a cancer diagnosis won’t stop me from calling McCain out on his shit, man. I wish him the best in regards to his health, but it’s ironic that he clearly doesn’t wish the same for us. All in all, I wonder if McCain even knows who he’s fighting for anymore. Real talk, it ain’t the American people, son. Not in any shape, form or fashion. LC out.

Get Bill Maher The F*ck Outta Here!

Yeah, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. I mean, in reality, there isn’t much that needs to be said here. All in all, Bill Maher is a fucking idiot, man. To be clear, I don’t want to hear shit about free speech or the fact that he’s a comedian. Frankly, Maher made a highly inappropriate comment and thought he could get away with it. With that being said, he now knows the gravity of his arrogance.

Now, for anyone who missed it, Maher was interviewing Senator Ben Sasse on the Friday edition of his Real Time show. While speaking about Halloween in his native Nebraska, Sasse expressed that the holiday was “frowned upon” in his state. From there, Maher said that he needed to visit Nebraska more. Next, when Sasse invited Maher to “work in the fields” with them, Maher said “Senator, I’m a house nigger.”

Ok, so, let me get this straight. A White guy is having a conversation with another White guy, the word “fields” is brought up and a slavery reference is made? So, why the fuck should anybody be cool with this? Look, does anybody defending Maher even know what a house nigger was? Well, here’s a quick history lesson for everyone reading this.

So, a house nigger was a slave who served the master in the house. They cooked for the master, cleaned for the master and took care of the master’s kids. In a number of cases, house niggers had lighter skin than the typical African slave. This came as a result of frequent sexual assaults perpetrated by masters on their slaves. In addition, a portion of house niggers ended up “loving” their masters because they didn’t have to deal with the backbreaking work in the fields.

With all of that being said, why the FUCK should anyone give Maher a pass, man?! Shit, if he made a Holocaust reference, I highly doubt anyone would claim it was “just a joke.” Man, since when were White people allowed to make slavery jokes anyway? Look, descendants of the oppressor don’t get to liken themselves to the oppressed. Ultimately, Maher was cocky enough to think he could get away with his ignorant ass joke. For that, I don’t accept his half-assed apology. Fam, he only did it to stay on HBO‘s good side.

In the end, I guess I lied about keeping this post short. Listen, I couldn’t help myself, man. Bill Maher is a fucking asshole, bruh. He’s a prime example of a “pretentious liberal.” Look, just because we agree on some political points doesn’t mean he can just jump out the window like that. By and by, Maher just needs to shut the fuck up. I mean, he was never that funny anyway. LC out.
