Blame the Played, Not the Player!

Joel Osteen
Joel Osteen is just one of many pastoral and evangelical con artists operating in the Christian religion. The saddest thing is that many people who have seen this meme of humor and truth [which I did not design but found on the internet] don’t mind at all the workings – or the wealth – of men and women like Osteen. If I had Osteen’s charisma and good looks (because I already have sufficient Bible knowledge, the public speaking talent and the ability to bullshit a mutherfucker on a dime), I too could get filthy rich by conning a bunch of people about the existence of mythological characters, places and the supposed happening of events noted in a man-written, multi-edited best-seller book called “The Holy Bible”. My mom used to always say (and she halfway expected) that I should be a preacher. (Sorry, Mom; having two in the family is enough!)

Regarding men and women like Joel Osteen, here’s some “old school” Philly street boy advice from yours truly:
“Blame the person who got played, not the player. He (or she) is simply skilled at what they do. That’s it. It’s not the player’s fault if you got or are getting played, especially when someone wise tries to warn and school you about the player and his/her game way beforehand.”

Short Mother’s Day Comment

Eyes of Laura MarsToday, as in years past, Facebook will be ridiculously inundated with hundreds of postings about Mother’s Day. *sigh* Many people have already or will be changing their profile or cover banner photo to one of their mother or to one featuring themselves photographed with their mother. Fine. While that act is a nice indicator of honor and remembrance of their living or deceased mother, I’ve always found that sort of thing a bit pointless to do on social media, if not just plain superficial. Then again, Facebook is full of superficial people who do superficial things. As such, I suppose the Facebook profile and cover photo changes on Mother’s Day (and on Father’s Day, too) is par for the course. Again, this is, and has always been my feeling on the matter. Anyone taking offense or strong opposition to it won’t change my mind. In fact, I think those persons would do well to simply accept the fact that everyone will not agree with what they or other people do on social media.
ANYWAY…
One thing which I will never understand is why some men post [on social media] Mother’s Day greetings to each other. Really, fellas? I find that sort of thing absolutely silly, completely unmanly, ignorant, stupid and certainly disrespectful to those women who are or who serve as mothers. I feel the same about those women who post or verbally pass Father’s Day greetings to members of their kind. In recent years, I’ve seen members of my ethnic group do such dumbass shit on Facebook. Where the fuck is the confusion on which parent’s day should be observed or celebrated with honor in the months of May and June? I don’t get it nor do I want to “get it”.
Again, *sigh*.

Sexual Discretion

Shhh…!

ct_(Shhh-don't tell anyone)
Always live in your truth! Have fun and enjoy your one life! Human sexuality is fluid. It’s natural and is meant to be that way! Do whatever you do sexually with good sense, personal care and safety, with the proper, well-understood consent of potential partners and, when necessary, with a measure of discretion.
And rememberYou are an adult. There’s never a need to tell anyone (or everyone) about who or what kind of things you’re into or might be willing to experiment and/or get into on the sexual level. That kind of information should only remain between you and your selected (and hopefully trusted) partner(s).

Getting Comfy After a Long Day Out

Chillaxin' with wineI want to thank my friend Christian M. who inspired me to write this article. Christian says, “The best part of getting home from work is vodka in your cup!” Sweet. I’m happy that works for him. As for me, I don’t drink vodka – at least not straight – but I do get his meaning. I know some of my friends like to enjoy a glass of Hennessy cognac but I have neither liked nor drink that stuff.

For me, the best and usually first part of getting Chillaxin' with beer, vodkahome from work (or from anywhere) is simply and immediately getting naked. Seriously. Clothing for me can sometimes be so… restrictive. (Read my two-part article The Freedom of Nudity to better learn and understand my position on nudity and my clothing-free home lifestyle.) Therefore the moment I enter my home, off go my shoes, socks (if I’m wearing any), shirt, trousers or shorts and undershorts…that is, if I decided to wear a pair of undies that day. (I am and always have been a shameless freeballer.) Alcoholic drinks such as wine, rum, a couple shots of tequila or a beer then become an immediate and better-enjoyable second. 🙂

Election Fight Night 2016

Today is Tuesday, November 8, 2016. I voted earlier this afternoon. Mind you, I had planned not to be like many other people and brag about performing an expected civic duty of every American citizen. However, since I have a few other things to say, why not make an exception and blog about it? And so, here it is.

hillary-clinton-donald-trump-presidential-nomineesFrankly, I couldn’t care less to learn whether Person X voted. So fuckin’ what? As far as I’m concerned, if you’re age 18 or older (especially if you’re a person of color), are not serving time in prison, not tied up in a basement, not in a coma, not living the last few hours of precious life on your death-bed, and… if you have a sound mind to understand certain things of this American  country (and in the world) and can read and write, then I say that if you call yourself an American, you’re expected to vote – either by absentee ballot or in person at your assigned polling place. There’s simply no other excuse for any American not to vote in any election.

I was happy to see many fathers bring their school-aged kids with them to the polling place in my neighborhood so they could watch their fathers exercise their constitutional right to vote. However, I’m still unhappy about the fact that my polling place has always been in a church. UGH! I’ve never liked that sort of thing nor do I think it’s appropriate, especially considering that churches do not pay taxes into the community or the federal government. As an American and as a former Christian-turned-agnostic-turned-atheist, I’d like to see that shit changed and changed immediately. Until the Johnson Amendment is repealed or done away with, religious places of worship and schooling have absolutely no place in anything political. None whatsoever! Government leaders and civil service department appointees who are responsible for choosing polling places need to change that shit. Places like public schools, public libraries, school gyms, municipal administrative buildings and courts – each which are public places that is funded and supported by tax-payer money are the only and the most appropriate places to place public voting booths.

ANYWAY…
Aside from the internet, both radio and television stations and networks are delivering the expected minute by minute/hourly election updates. It’s become a bit annoying, if not stressful, to watch and listen to news correspondents and political experts sound a bit overly excited – not just about the electoral votes of presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and about the happenings in congressional races but about [what I consider] certain insignificant things. For example, the comparing of the election results of 2016 with that of four years ago and how White college-educated women voted versus how White non-college women voted. Is it me or has anyone else ever noticed that the media never measures how college-educated women – or men of color vote in elections? I suppose people in my ethnicity and those in other non-White ethnic groups aren’t believed to be college-educated or something. I dunno. I think that sort of measuring is racially and gender biased. Another annoying thing for me is getting constant text message updates on my phone from the Associated Press and from other news sites to which I subscribe.

I’m turning it all off!

CHECK IT: Doctors often sedate or put you to sleep when performing a colonoscopy…at least that’s what the doctors at the Veterans Administrative hospital did to me when I had one a few years ago. During that procedure I don’t recall ever dreaming or feeling anything being stuck up my sexy brown ass; I just remember waking up in a room different from the one in which I was put to sleep. By choosing to ignore the presidential election results…. at least until after midnight (EST) tonight, I’m putting myself to “sleep” or in an election fight night “blackout mode”. After having to endure this awful election year of watching several presidential candidates (none of whom I ever cared for to be the next president of the United States) just insult, lie and hate on each other and, in the process of all that happening, also watch my beloved country become further divided on so many levels, I can say with complete certainty that Campaign/Election 2016 was the worse presidential campaign election period I have ever witnessed to date. I could use a few hours break from this present political reality.

Wake me when it’s all fuckin’ over.
