A ‘Space Force,’ Son?

Man, what the fuck is going on in America? On the real, I’m amazed that Donald Trump can still amaze me with some of the shit that comes out of his mouth, son. Like, a “Space Force,” fam? I mean, out of ALL of the things happening in our country at the moment, is THIS where we need to dedicate our time and taxpayer dollars? Shit, are we in imminent danger of Star Wars and Star Trek coming to life? Bruh, can Trump spare me the fuckity-fuck shit?

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is still out here being Trump, son. Now, on Monday, he made an out-of-the-blue announcement, man. Apparently, he wants the Department of Defense and the Pentagon to put together a “Space Force.” Essentially, this new initiative would constitute the sixth branch of the Armed Forces. Side note, this shit ain’t about the military at all, fam. Listen, right after telling a bunch of generals to start putting plans together, he stated that wealthy individuals who “like rockets” would be able to launch into space. Well, for a fee, of course. Hell, I guess they’re really trying to create those condos on Mars, bruh.

Look, this is NOT the time for the shenanigans, son. Right now, there are COUNTLESS issues that need our attention, man. For example, what about those separated kids at the southern border, fam? Real talk, one measly executive order doesn’t reunite families that have already been ripped apart. Also, what about the pipes in Flint, Michigan? Last time I checked, the residents were still dealing with filthy water, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I could go on and on, folks. Frankly, the United States has MORE than enough on our plate. We don’t need the extra shit, people.

In the end, I’m not falling for the gaffle, son. Ultimately, anytime shit starts to go haywire in the Trump administration, he comes with the MEAN misdirect, man. At the end of the day, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m well-versed in the intricacies of “defending” space. But, I do know that there are WAY more important and immediate issues that need to be fixed in our country. So, knock it the fuck off, Trump! That is all. LC out.

P.S. If this “Space Force” actually happens, will a brotha get a lightsaber or a phaser? Asking for a friend. Good day.

Children Aren’t Negotiation Tools, Donald Trump

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I haven’t written about the heinous practices at the southern border because I haven’t been able to find the right words to express my disgust. Like, I don’t know how a “fair and just” nation could EVER think that separating innocent children from their parents is an acceptable policy. All I know is, I’m sick of Donald Trump, I’m sick of the GOP and I’m sick of all of the people who support this inhumane agenda.

Now, at this point, EVERYONE should’ve heard about what’s happening at the southern border, son. Basically, kids are being ripped away from their parents for trying to get into this country. Ok, yes, there absolutely should be checks and balances for who’s allowed to come into the United States. However, what part of the game is decimating families for the sake of immigration? Look, America has been a nation for almost 250 years. Clearly, we’ve used MUCH better ways to determine an immigrant’s status, man.

Look, I’m not falling for any of the smoke screens, fam. On the real, I hope NO ONE believes the idea that the Democrats enforced this law. First, Trump himself tried to use the separation practice as a negotiation tool. Shit, he literally said that he’d change the law if the Dems agreed to fund his border wall. Next, Jeff Sessions flatly told Laura Ingraham on Fox News that the policy was being used as a “deterrent.” Meaning, they’re threatening immigrants with losing their children if they come across the border.

To make matters worse, crazy ass Stephen Miller is a STRONG proponent of the policy and is alleged to be the psycho who created it. Finally, when I watch Ann Coulter call the crying babies “child actors” and hear Corey Lewandowski say “womp womp” to a video of a girl with Down Syndrome, I know that I’m witnessing pure evil, bruh. So, with all of that being said, miss me with the “this is the Democrats fault” shit. Keeping it a buck, this is EXACTLY the type of devastation that the Republicans wanted, son.

In the end, America continues to show the world just how garbage we are, man. Ultimately, I don’t know how anyone can take pride in this nation, fam. Ok, wait, that’s not true, bruh. By and by, the ONLY people who take pride in this country are the ones who aren’t affected by any of its despicable policies. At the end of the day, the U.S. continues to prove that it isn’t built for anyone with pigmented skin. That is all. LC out.

P.S. If anyone thinks I’m being overly dramatic, just look up “tender age shelters” in Google. *Sigh* This is America, son. Word to Childish Gambino.

Is This Anthony Joshua & Deontay Wilder Fight Happening?!

So, this fight may happen, son. Shit, the bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder may actually happen, man. All I know is, these dudes better not be bullshitting the fans, fam. On the real, if the news is accurate and Wilder has agreed to Joshua’s terms, then I am fucking HYPED, bruh! Hell, THIS is the fight that boxing fans want to see, people! All in all, September can’t come soon enough, folks!

Ok, for those who missed it, Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel, told ESPN that Wilder has agreed to the offer by Joshua and his manager, Eddie Hearn. Now, although the contract hasn’t been signed yet, it seems as if both sides are ready to go, son. Apparently, the fight will take place in the United Kingdom, Joshua’s home turf. In addition, they’re aiming to have the fight in September. But, that wholly depends on whether or not Gennady Golovkin gets back in the ring with Canelo Álvarez. Side note, I’m not that interested in a rematch between GGG and Canelo, man. In my eyes, GGG won the first fight and now I’m not sure if Canelo is a dirty fighter or not. So, fuck it, fam.

In any case, the table is set for Joshua and Wilder to get down, bruh. Man, we may really have an undisputed heavyweight champion before the year is over, son. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m excited as fuck, fam! All I can say is, Joshua better not do something stupid like fight Alexander Povetkin first. Listen, nobody wants to see that shit, folks. We want Joshua versus Wilder, plain and simple.

In the end, Finkel, Al Haymon and Matchroom Boxing better get this shit finalized, son. Ultimately, the boxing world needs a showdown of this magnitude, man. By and by, the business aspect of boxing has a way of ruining great fights before they even happen. At the end of the day, let’s just hope that this isn’t one of those situations, fam. Anyway, let’s get ready to rumble! LC out.

P.S. I completely forgot to mention that the potential deal between the fighters is a two-fight deal. Meaning, the first fight would be in the UK and the rematch would be in the United States. I mean, what else needs to be said, bruh? Let’s make this shit happen! That is all.

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.

Good Riddance, Larry Nassar

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. Basically, I just want to say good riddance to Larry Nassar, man. I mean, that guy deserves every millisecond of his 175-year prison sentence, fam. On the real, his atrocities against minors were so egregious, I’m not even sure how to describe it all in words, bruh. In any case, I have NO sympathy for this man and hope he gets the Grade A prison treatment.

Ok, at this point, everyone should’ve heard about this story, son. Basically, the team doctor for the USA Gymnastics squad molested girls for damn near fifteen years. This includes high-profile Olympic-champions like Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles. Now, in total, authorities believe that Nassar abused close to 150 girls. In addition, a number of them were under the age of thirteen. To make matters worse, he was in possession of 30,000-plus images of child pornography. All in all, this dude is an absolute MONSTER, man!

Moving on, Nassar’s day of judgement finally came. After he pled guilty to all of his fuckery, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina threw the whole book at him. By and by, he was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for his grotesque crimes. Anyway, all I can say is, the punishment was more than appropriate, fam. Then again, they should’ve given his ass more time. In fact, I wish they could preserve his life just so he could stay in prison and keep on suffering. That’s EXACTLY what a peon like him warrants, bruh.

In the end, nothing else needs to be said, son. Fuck Nassar and fuck the Gymnastics team for not protecting these girls. Ultimately, good people left their children in their care and they failed them. When it’s all said and done, I hope these girls/women can put their pain behind them and live fruitful lives. All I know is, devils like Nassar don’t deserve to hold onto a piece of their sanity. LC out.

P.S. Are people really trying to criticize Judge Aquilina for her actions? Man, get the FUCK outta here! Listen, Nassar doesn’t deserve ANYONE’S empathy, son! Real talk, for a man who’s damaged so many lives, why would anyone care what happens to him in prison? Look, he should receive EVERY tribulation that’ll be thrown his way, man. At the end of the day, some people don’t need mercy, fam. Larry Nassar is one of those people, bruh. So, folks with a “moral superiority complex” can shut the fuck up! That is all.

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.

Who In Hawaii Needs To Get Fired?

Look, this is a wild era right now, son. Like, it really feels like a nuclear catastrophe could arise at any minute, man. With that being said, we ain’t got the time to be worried about idiots who are bad at their job. I mean, a high level of incompetence resulted in the nonsense that occurred in Hawaii. All I know is, the good people down there didn’t deserve the fear that was unjustly instilled in them.

Ok, for those who missed it, some bonehead in the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency made a MASSIVE mistake. Now, on Saturday, an unknown individual sent out a message that said “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” Needless to say, Hawaiians lost their collective minds, fam! Shit, all of us would if we received a similar message, bruh! Listen, whether we’re speaking about North Korea or ISIS, there are real threats out there in the world. In any case, now is not the time to be making these kind of mistakes, folks!

Now, the agency has come out and said that the error occurred because someone pushed the wrong button. Apparently, instead of pressing “test alert,” some dumb-dumb pressed “live alert.” So, what, that’s all it took to send an entire state into panic, son? Like, there aren’t more safeguards to prevent this type of tomfoolery? Fam, what kind of idiocy is this? For fuck’s sake, who designed this backwards ass system, man? All in all, everyone down there should be fired for this brand of fuckery, fam!

In the end, I’m just glad everyone in Hawaii is safe, bruh. Yeah, they had an unnecessary scare, but ultimately, the alternative could’ve been REAL bad, son! By and by, a fake message about a ballistic missile is waaaaaay better than a real ballistic missile, fam. Now, instead of mourning the loss of fallen loved ones, we can make sure that inept assholes are no longer in charge of our safety. That is all. LC out.
