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.

I Don’t Care About ‘Covfefe’

So, to be real, I wasn’t even going to write about this story, son. I mean, keeping it a buck, Donald Trump‘s inability to spell is not news. Look, his grammatical error game is strong on Twitter, man. Frankly, I’m surprised when he’s actually able to tweet a coherent thought, fam. That’s how rarely that event occurs, bruh. In any case, I don’t like how this nonsense is distracting us from the Trump administration’s usual fuckery. In any case, LC is here to remind everyone of just that, son.

Now, before I continue, let me get one thing out of the way. Man, someone needs to put Sean Spicer out of his misery, bruh. Listen, defending Trump MUST be killing him inside. Fam, this dude really stood behind a podium and said “the President and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.” Good fucking Lord, man! This administration can’t even admit to a fucking typo, son! That statement is one of the most preposterous collections of words I’ve ever heard in my life. Look, Spicer, NO ONE believes that bullshit, man! Absolutely no one.

Moving on, let me be perfectly clear about this entire brouhaha. I don’t care about “covfefe” because the House Intelligence Committee just subpoenaed Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer. I don’t care about “covfefe” because James Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate. I don’t care about “covfefe” because Trump is having a war of words with Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany. As a reminder, Germany is an ally of ours. Needless to say, so much real shit is happening out here, we shouldn’t have time to worry about the fact that Trump is dumber than a fifth grader. We all need to be paying attention to the real issues, fam. It’s getting ugly out here, son. Really ugly.

In the end, we all know Trump is an idiot, man. That tidbit is not news. At this point, we all need to be worrying about the inner workings of this administration. Ultimately, the FBI and the intelligence committees need to get to the bottom of the real tomfoolery, son. Until then, please keep the stupidity out of the media, fam. Thanks. LC out.

How About That Obamacare Repeal?

First off, despite the title of today’s post, I’m going to stop referring to the Affordable Care Act as Obamacare. On the real, Republicans have used this phrasing to stigmatize the issue in the minds of their base. This is exactly why a number of GOP voters don’t even realize that Obamacare and ACA are the same damn thing. In any case, now is a good time to laugh at the right-wing. Despite being in control of the presidency AND both houses of Congress, they still couldn’t muster up enough votes to pass the American Health Care Act. I’m sorry, but that’s fucking hilarious, son.

Now, I’d like someone to explain this failure to me. Ever since ACA became law, the GOP has made it their mission to bring it down. I mean, along with taking away women’s rights and banning all Muslims, repealing ACA is at the top of the Republican agenda. So, with that being said, how could they lose in such epic fashion? The GOP literally has home court advantage, son.

Look, they control the House of Representatives, the Senate and the presidency, man! That’s like having Shaquille O’Neal, Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the same team, bruh. The Democrats really can’t do shit but cry in a corner. All that, and Republicans STILL couldn’t convince enough members to vote for the new bill. Shit, “pitiful” isn’t even a strong enough word, son.

Moving on, as expected, Donald Trump is lashing out at anyone within arm’s reach. First, he took aim at the Democrats. He blamed them for not supporting ACHA at all. Once he remembered that his party controls everything, he shifted the blame to his own people. Ultimately, he attacked the House Freedom Caucus and Club for Growth and Heritage Action for America for the crushing defeat. All in all, I don’t give a fuck who’s responsible, man. The bill was trash, most Trump supporters actually signed up for ACA and the White House has no idea how to lead. All I know is, if they can’t get this done, they’re going to have a tough road ahead of them.

In the end, shout-out to the GOP for blowing a 3-1 lead. I’m sure the Golden State Warriors would be very proud. Now, was that an unnecessary knock on Stephen Curry and company? Yes, yes it was, son. Big whoop, wanna fight about it? LC out.
