"A British tabloid is claiming that Rihanna plans to take boyfriend-turned-alleged abuser Chris Brown back for good if he agrees to issue a public apology on the "Oprah Winfrey Show."
Forget taking his raggedy ass to court. Can't do that because ya'll is shackin'. Forget dragging him to church. Can't do that because again, ya'll is shackin'. Forget introducing the boy to her daddy... gee I wonder why? No, Rihanna is bypassing the traditional route and is taking her boyfriend-beater-upper right to the top! They're off to see, The Oprah!
Well, I guess if The Oprah can get the Chocolate Jesus elected as President of the United States, she has the power to stop a thug from beating on his girlfriend (even if half of the Americans of African descent under the age of 20 believe she deserved it).
I can see it all now...
"I confess, Oprah, I whooped her ass."
"Why, Chris Brown, why did you do it?"
"Because I am a man, Oprah, but I swear to you, if you forgive me I will never hit Rihanna again, and I will allow her to take care of me, support me, love me and whatnot."
"That was beautiful, Chris. I believe you. So by the power invested in me (by myself), I say, in the name of me, The Oprah! BE HEALED!"
Then somebody (me?) in the studio audience busrst out in song...
All hail the power of Oprah's name let duped people's prostrate fall. Bring forth the loyal simpletons and crown... her... self-absorbed fraud! To Oprah all majesty ascribe and crown... her... self-absorbed fraud!
Cut to commercial: Do you have erectile dysfunction... Don't forget about the little BLUE PILL!!!!
"In a little-noticed move, the House Financial Services Committee, led by chairman Barney Frank, has approved a measure that would, in some key ways, go beyond the most draconian features of the original AIG bill. The new legislation, the'Pay for Performance Act of 2009,' would impose government controls on the pay of all employees -- not just top executives -- of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government. It would, like the tax measure, be retroactive, changing the terms of compensation agreements already in place. And it would give Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner extraordinary power to determine the pay of thousands of employees of American companies." - dcexaminer.com
Sing the Sesame Street "One of These Things is Not Like the Other" song.
"One of these men is not Barack's father, One of these men just doesn't belong, Choose the man who looks like his father, Hurry up before America is gone!"
I was getting my ass kicked during my McCain moment when this story was first reported. Talk about your shady association! Of course, it was the British press (which was not and is not in bed with Obama) that broke the story.
I really don't feel like rehashing old unresolved mysteries concerning the dream of "the One's" father/s? I would just like to point out that in one fell swoop the whole citizenship and potential paternity dispute could have been and could still be settled with the release of a birth certificate and a simple blood test. I mean, what's the big deal?
Anyway for those of you who may be as clueless as I am, check out the bio on Frank Marshall Davis, Barack Obama's "mentor."
excerpt===Davis did not like "big business" and the rapacious, "tentacled" rich men who ran it. "For instance," wrote Davis, "Alfred Sloan of General Motors announced that his gigantic company made a profit last year of $600,000,000, more than any other corporation in history. Over the years, General Motors has swallowed up or knocked out car manufacturer after car manufacturer so that today less than a handful of competitors remain. Free enterprise, eh?"
"Monopolies" like GM had to be controlled by the government, said Davis. If not, the likes of GM would control the government. "Obviously, a business that can show a profit ... of $600,000,000 is in a position to control government," wrote Davis. "When we remember that the directors and major stockholders of one industry also shape the policies of banks and other huge corporations, it is easy to see that the tentacles of Big Business control just about everything they think they need to insure continued profits." Davis claimed that, "The control of our wealth and government by the giant corporations ... [was] accomplished fact."
Davis believed that it was such free enterprise run amok, allegedly un-regulated and un-checked by the federal government, that had caused the Great Depression: "For many years now we have been living under the virtual dictatorship of Big Business which all but drove us to ruin in 1929."
Comrade Davis put it more bluntly a few weeks later in his March 2, 1950 column, approvingly quoting Woodrow Wilson: "The masters of the government of the United States are the combined capitalists and manufacturers of the United States." In that column, Davis was most concerned with the inability of poor Americans to purchase "a decent home."
For Davis, the only hope was a huge, emboldened federal government that could save Americans from the capitalists, that could rein in fat-cat corporations, that could slap down Wall Street and its excesses, that could spread the wealth, and that could ensure that the poor could buy a home.
To what degree are Obama's comments on the economy and taxes influenced by the communist-socialist ideas of Davis? No doubt, the question is fair, given that we only know of the Obama-Davis relationship because of Barack Obama himself, who opened the door in his memoirs. I could never have written this piece if Obama hadn't acknowledged Davis. Obama was mentored by Davis in his late teens, before heading off to college, where, as Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father, he hung out with the "Marxist professors" and attended "socialist conferences."===
One day, these two issues will be bigger than the grassy knoll theory . . . provided America survives the Obamanation, that is....People will ask, "where the hell was the American media?" People will say, "What the @$%!?!"
Barack Davis/Obama's daddy (pick one, either one) was a communist. The dreams of his father are America's nightmares!
"The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or witnessing." -The Voice Magazine.com
