Oh for the Love of God!

I wanted to just enjoy the holiday with no drama, but damn it the Republicans and their F$%kery have woken me from my rum and apple pie haze. so for your information ( I will leave comments to you)

The Republicans want you to believe that this is just a parody and funny but I would have to disagree, if this was any other President-elect all hell would break lose if this CD was sent out. AH the F$%kery!

From the Huffington post:

***UPDATE*** 12/27 4:45PM Reaction on the right to Saltsman's distribution of a song called "Barack the Magic Negro" in his quest to become the new chairman of the RNC has been mixed. One of Saltsman's rivals in the race for RNC chair, Ken Blackwell, an African-American himself, has defended Saltsman, dismissing the criticism as "hypersensitivity in the press":

"Unfortunately, there is hypersensitivity in the press regarding matters of race. This is in large measure due to President-Elect Obama being the first African-American elected president," said Blackwell, who would be the first black RNC Chairman, in a statement forwarded to Politico by an aide. "I don't think any of the concerns that have been expressed in the media about any of the other candidates for RNC chairman should disqualify them. When looked at in the proper context, these concerns are minimal. All of my competitors for this leadership post are fine people."

However, the current chairman of the RNC, Mike Duncan, has issued a statement saying he is "shocked and appalled" that Saltsman could have thought this was appropriate:

Duncan's statement, in full: "The 2008 election was a wake-up call for Republicans to reach out and bring more people into our party. I am shocked and appalled that anyone would think this is appropriate as it clearly does not move us in the right direction."


EARLIER: The Hill reports that a Republican operative seeking to be the next chairman of the RNC has invited controversy by distributing to committee members a CD filled with songs poking fun at liberals, including one called "Barack the Magic Negro":

RNC candidate Chip Saltsman's Christmas greeting to committee members includes a music CD with lyrics from a song called "Barack the Magic Negro," first played on Rush Limbaugh's popular radio show.

Saltsman, a personal friend of conservative satirist Paul Shanklin, sent a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members...

...The CD, called "We Hate the USA," lampoons liberals with such songs as "John Edwards' Poverty Tour," "Wright place, wrong pastor," "Love Client #9," "Ivory and Ebony" and "The Star Spanglish banner."

Several of the track titles, including "Barack the Magic Negro," are written in bold font.

The Snow is here



C.J really enjoyed his first real roll in the snow, and though I'd rather be in bed if this is what happens when he goes in the snow... I'm there.
(Before anyone asks, CJ was fine after the face down pic)

READ ME AGAIN!


As hilarious as my 10 things were yesterday ( See below, I might break out a little soft shoe in honor of it this weekend, haha) I think the words of inspiration I posted earlier need to be up a little longer. I want the entire Blog world to pay attention to these words, (revised Thanks Keith):

Have no regrets. Every relationships leads you to where you're meant to be. Learn to be comfortable with being alone. Learn to be comfortable with saying no to people; we put everybody else before ourselves. Read great literature; don't get all your information from TV. Define your moral code --Nobody else is going to give you that. Find it yourself. Keep asking questions, keep challenging. You don't have to conform, rebellion creates character.
And as my mother always said to me
"Don't let anyone break your spirit"

10 things

Today as I boarded a rather crowded E train (thanks Keisha K for the ride) I managed to find a seat withing seconds. It was in the two seaters, and the man sitting there was rather slim so I was ready to celebrate, PAUSE. No this ride was hellish to say the least, so starting with that jacka$$ here are the top 10 things that I hated about my ride this morning:

The jerk guy sitting next to me with his legs wide open (even after I sat down), Hell we get it already your junk needs to breathe. But since you didn't pay two fares, close your legs or stand up!

The jerk guy sitting next to me with his hands in his side coat pockets, DUDE we are on a heated train and it is actually rather hot! If your hands are cold get some damn gloves, because my ribs are not that interested in being intimate with your elbows (Yes these were my exact words to him after the 2nd time I had to move his arms)

And for real if you take that IPOD out one more time, its going to be on!

Anyone that watches a pregnant woman or a man with a young child get on the train and not offer them your seat. WTH is with you people? I can have on 4 inch heels feet killing me after being on my feet all day and I forget that when I see a a woman/man with kids. YES I gave the pregnant woman my seat, after I warned her about the jerk guys elbows.

Hey Mr. NY Times the entire seated section does not want to read your paper. Fold the paper and act like you've been on the train before

Mr/Mrs Desperate for a seat, if you enter the train car and notice that 90% of the passengers are on the opposite side, take the hint!Don't go sit next to the homeless man, then storm through the crowded section, screaming he "Stinks". DUMB ASS

Hey Mr Stiff as a board, They call people that ride the trains Strap hangers for a reason, HOLD ON! because I danced all last night, and since I don't have a hat down on the ground I'd prefer you stop stomping all over my feet like this is our dance. ~ shuffle ball change

Crazy dude screaming at no one and everyone. There is no reason for all of that, if you and your voices are having a disagreement and need an arbitrator there is a place for you. However you are on the wrong train, that would be the A/C to that hospital. Or just take the medicine you and your voice seem to be arguing about taking.

Sleeping while standing is hard enough but damn near impossible on a moving train. So Dude please wake up, I already have one dance partner, see Mr Stiff as a board.

Mr/Mrs mouthing words to me across the train:
Mr/Mrs: Do you have the time?
Me: Yes
HAHA, ok maybe that is me being a tad cheeky, but that is the right response to the question. I do have the time and you know I do because you can see my watch. Now if you would like to know what time it is just ask... hehehe

Lastly, I just hate the MTA. They are talking about raising fares 28%, and that is just insane. Every year they have deficit but the trains are slow, delayed and just plain old terrible EVERY DAY! I heard the news give the C train a rating of a C- and that was good, huh what? In school that wasn't a grade to celebrate (unless it was statistics then jump for joy)

So there you go 10 things for this week. My fellow NYers feel free to add more if you like.

Just a little inspiration

I read this and I was inspired by it so I decided to share

Random thoughts

I'm sitting here watching my favorite showtime series, Brotherhood (after Tudors) and I had a million things running though my mind...

Why do the Irish/Italians always reference rappers when they speak about Black people?

Who would want a Dexter e-card? He's a serial killer, what would the card say?

When is Big Love coming back on?

HBO makes me crazy making me wait one year to see a new season, stop it

I still haven't seen the Noah's Arc movie, and I absolutely loved that show.

Is it still playing?

In an effort to relax more before I go to bed, I have been doing Yoga stretches and drinking tea. Not sure if its working because I feel more energized

I don't usually take OTC drugs but Nyquil cold is the best thing ever. I barely remember my name with that.

I really can't watch Keyshia Coles and the Bad Girls club, I've already killed enough brain cells.

If someone poured a drink on my head, Lord help them (see why I can't watch the Bad Girls Club)

I wonder if they get these girls therapy, after this show is over? If not then what is the point....

What am I going to wear to my offices Christmas party?

Would fishnets be inappropriate? hehe, I kid but I'm sure there will be some there.

Why does my cat insist on sleeping in the bathroom on the new rug:? She has two cat beds!

What is with calling each other Bitch all the time? O.K once but damn it 4 Bitches in one sentence is too much.

Thank God for DVR because I would never be able to watch all the must see TV.

Now that the Supreme court has decided not to hear the case about Obama's birth certificate, will this issue finally die?

If I don't get this Christmas card shot today folks will be getting it via email. I know so wack.

I hate lazy people, stop making excuses and just get the work done.

Is it me or are there quite a few bloggers that needed a rest from it all? We'll miss you.

Blogging is actually what keeps me from blowing up. There are tons of things I haven't published but I needed a release.

I think I am over this layout, I want to do something else. Maybe while I'm on vacation.....

Alright that's it. I hope the train offers me some funny stories I haven't done that in a while, The F to Brooklyn is just boring.

CJ is hilarious

It is exactly 5am NY times and in the half hour we've have been up C.J has made me laugh so I thought I share with you... HAPPY FRIDAY!

C.J woke up and said, Mommy that alarm clock is playing my song and then started singing "If I were a boy" head all tilted back hahah

I decided to do Yoga, since I was already up, and C.J said "No Mommy, no exercise we go to work now" As I was half in a back bend, CJ screamed "Give me a five mommy I went to the potty" Then he started his famous break dancing and singing Hi Hater. haha

As I am writing this he is running around singing the theme to Backyardigans

in the same high pitched voice, dancing and spinning around and around NAKED of course.

Well I'm off to work, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

10 Things

That piss me off.... So pay attention.

If we get on the elevator at the same time, and its just the two of us please don't bother chatting it up to me about the weather, how you don't want to be at work etc... Just smile, say good morning and keep it moving (this does not apply to people that know me).

Men, don't you think its kind of rude to hit on me when I am with my two year old on crowded 5th avenue...Oh you don't well I do, so to the trash with your card.

If we are on the train and you are not getting off MOVE FROM THE DOOR! And do not get mad if I say excuse me when I am exiting the train.

Speaking of the train, If I wanted to hear "Sasha Fierce"teenage boy I would have bought the CD, and I didn't so turn down your IPOD!

DO not call my mobile phone and play games, if I answer your suspect number say something because I will call you back and curse you out. . A guy called my mobile Saturday and for 5 minutes of me saying hello he said nothing but was breathing heavy. Yep he got clicked and then cursed out.

Customer Service Rep. your job is to service me the customer (dang its right in your title) so please curb your attitude and do your job. I am not afraid to ask for your manager.

I hate when Artist put out CD's that have a special edition and it sucks. Sorry Beyonce Sasha Fierce is kind of Lame, But I will jam to "Ego"That's my theme song.

I'm not into the sister girl hug, but definitely not in the bathroom at the office. I'm glad you are there too sister, but I just met you and we are in a bathroom. So again smile and nod, smile and nod.

When people do not wash their hands after using the ladies room. EWWWW, I am standing right next to you so running the water over your hands is not WASHING them. (not the sister hug lady it was another woman, so EWW again)

10 Things might have to be something I do more often. So next up 10 things I love in the winter.

See ya'll tomorrow.
