Political blog hiatus is over... just in time for the fall of the Republic

Well Loves, I am back from my..um.. 2 year-long political blog hiatus, and it appears I am just in time for the fall of the Republic. Donald J. Trump is the cotton-picking President of the United States! I will admit, on the night of the election, as the results came in, I cried. Though I was not a big fan of Hillary Clinton's, I most certainly did not want her to lose to the man I call "Cheeto Jesus!" Come on America! Seriously! We go from a professorial President, to one who couldn't spell "professorial" if you gave him the first eleven letters. But, as Americans are wont to do, we dealt in extremes, and handed the country over to a political novice with Neo-Nazi, anti-Semetic, misogynistic, and racists tendencies. *High-Five*
Trump has been in the Oval for 87 days, and the world has seen a host of missteps, accusations of incompetence, and of course, the high drama that are his ties to Russia.



We could view a timeline of the insanity occurring by way of the White House, but, that would take way too long to list, and I won't do that to you. You know and I know just how bat sh*t crazy DJT and is cronies are, but what does that mean for the United States and the world? I can't think of a single US President who has been plagued with more scandal, in-fighting, and leaks than the current POTUS. Sure, Nixon, had a lot going on, but I don't think even Watergate was this insane!
From DJT's seemingly uncontrollable urge to "Tweef" (Twitter Beefs) with any and everyone he feels slights him, to the numerous high-level associates with obvious ties to Russia and Putin's desire to manipulate the Election; I find it incredibly hard to believe the US government and the people of this nation will survive this Administration unscathed.
It seems the POTUS has very little interest in actually heading the government, and the Republican Party is notoriously incapable of actually governing. They wanted to win. Simple as that: just win. They had no plan beyond that. Case and point: the failed repeal (and replace) of the ACA (Obamacare.) For seven years, the GOP crowed about the magnificent plan they had to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, how they would end it "on day one," and how their plan would be better for Americans. All of those claims were proven a lie when, in March, House Republicans pulled the Bill. If the rest of the Trump Administration's legislative agenda looks anything like their fail on Healthcare, then we are in for a long, long, long and trying *four* years.
I suppose the bombing of Syria, alleged Boarder wall, Russia, incompetent Cabinet picks, stolen Supreme Court seat, gaffs with world leaders, the death of a Navy Seal in a botched raid, defundng of the EPA, and the rest of his insanity, has not yet been enough for his supporters to turn on him in sufficient numbers, but, hey, at least he's not a woman or a black man.

To (some) Black Men...why though

Apparently it is super trendy for (some...before the "not all" chorus lifts every voice and sings) Black men to "drag" black women on social media. My question: why though?? What is going on? Okay, Black men who have "issues" with Black women are nothing new. As a Black woman who is "darker than a brown paper bag," I am quite familiar with all the old tropes: "Black women are too ghetto...don't wear their own hair...don't respect Black men...have too much drama...are loud...destroyed the Black family..." etc., ad infinitum. But here lately, it seems, Black men are well and truly taking issue with us in every imaginable way. Tyrese, French Montana, Trick Daddy, and the like all seem to have, what I am sure they deem, serious grievances with Black woman, and I just don't get it. And let's not talk about the "Hotep" brothers who are quick to, in the same breath call the Black woman God and tell us we need to stop…

Tomi Lahren: Outrage Barbie...please go away

(RawStory.com)

What would you get if you mixed Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, and Ann Coulter in a nifty Ninja blender? You'd get "Alt-Right" Princess Tomi Lahren. Like one of her ideological fathers, Bill O, Lahren was recently fired from her other daddy's Internet channel, The Blaze, but that doesn't mean she's gone quietly into that good night.
Tomi, like Ann Coulter, is a blond, (they say) attractive, white woman with a penchant for giving angry white men stiffies with her screeching about the war on White people, police officers, and, of course, all things Negro.Tomi has appointed herself the far, far Right's spokeswoman where outrage is concerned. Her most inflammatory rants always seem to be ones in which she is taking a black man to task; most notably, her rants against actor Jessie Williams following his acceptance speech at the BET awards last year and Colin Kaepernick regarding is decision to sit during the National Anthem.
