Alright, I know y'all thinking Granny was gone say something about Herman Cain's side piece. Instead, I'm gonna let this song tell y'all what happened.
On a serious note, I feel bad for his wife Gloria. I really do! The wife is always the last to know when their husband has been unfaithful and sometimes she already knows and is denial. Nevertheless, I'm praying that she will get through with her self-esteem in tact, and that she will have the support of her family and friends because she is gonna need every last one of them to lean on.
May the good things of life be yours in abundance not only at Thanksgiving, but also throughout the coming year, and may you enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving, a joyous holiday season and healthful. Family and friends are a wonderful part of the Thanksgiving Holiday! I pray that your Thanksgiving is filled with Peace, Love, and Harmony!
Tomorrow is a busy day for me. I will be cooking up a storm and trying to get my entire Thanksgiving dinner ready, so that I can relax and enjoy family on the holiday because to me that is what it is all about being able to have a good time with family. I love cooking on the holidays for family and friends. I take pleasure in making sure that the food is seasoned and cooked just right.
On holidays I cook as if I am cooking for an army, because most of the time, not only will family come, but also unexpected guest as well as invited guest show up. Y’all know black folk’s families do not leave without taking a plate home with them too. Trust me, before the day is over I will be lucky if I have a bone and crumbs left. However, I do not mind though because that lets me know that the food was good.
Some people may not realize it, but we have so much to be thankful for, waking up every morning to see a brand new day, a roof over our head, clothes on our backs, and food in our stomachs, family, and friends. Many people do not have those things. My prayer is that those who are without be blessed with a good hot meal, warm shelter, love, and compassion. The older you get you become more thankful for the little things in life.
Every single day, since the GOP candidates threw their hat into the ring as a nominee for presidential candidate, I can't help but wonder when are they gonna have a "GOP Housewives" show. At the rate the GOP nominees are going, I'm willing to bet that the GOP Housewives show would be interesting to say the least.
I could just see it now, Gingrich's wife flashing her jewelry from Tiffanys thinking she is all that and a bag of chips. Her and Mitt's wife would be gal pals. Cain's wife and Bachmann's wife (yeah I said wife) would be into it with Mitt's wife about religion. Paul's wife burning a cross in front of Cain's wife window, while pretending that she's her friend, and Huntmans' wife observing them all and staying a safe distance. Surprise guest would be Hermain's sex harrassment victims and Gingrich's ex-wife.
A thought crossed my mind when I heard about Gingrich's 1.6 million payment for consultation work for Freddie Mae a government agency. That's an awful lot of money for consultation, especially consultation fees with a government agency. I thought Uncle Sam had a set budget in all of his agencies and only allowed a certain amount of spent in each. If a office ran out, they had to wait until next budget came around.
Believe me, Uncle Sam is so tight with money allowed for business and office expenses within his government agencies, until he squeaks. Uncle Sam takes inventory of repairs, paper clips, copier ink, gas mileage, government cars, etc. Therefore, how did Newt get 1.6 million to consult and was it itemized?
Mitt Romney and the harddrive sale among his TOP aides and wiping records clean is very unusual. Evidently, the GOP learned something from that last email scandal they had when Bush was in office. Yup! They learned a better way to get rid of evidence, oops I meant harddrives.
I never thought I'd see the day when a valid ID to vote would be a gun permit. So that means that the little fellow in the above picture can vote too. Yup, he can just crawl on into the voting place on election day, crawl up to the table, get his ballad, crawl into the voting booth, and cast his vote.
The GOP party of bigots is taking us back to after Reconstruction when black folks was fleeing to Liberia to get away from their crazy ass because of guess what? You got it! Voter suppression! Back during that time, politicians was rigging the votes to put their party in power, maintain their position, and enforced it with violence. As desperate as the GOP party is right about now...well, you never know what they might try next.
Nevertheless, I guess they must feel that they wouldn't win this election unless they cheat, so they've decided to pull an old school on folks. Yup! The GOP party does not want to share the power. Nope! They are trying to do everything in their power to make sure that America is run by ONE party with obstruction and suppression. They are dead set on reaching that goal. If Americans sit back and let them...that is.
They plan on taking us back so far in history by changing laws and the Constitution. Already, you can see in states where the Republicans are governors how they are at work and have tried to accomplish some of it. What's sad is that the majority of the GOP party wouldn't know the Constitution if it was staring them in the face or wrote down on every wall and sidewalk in America. But I betcha they could tell you every single detail on green paper money because they sold themselves to the highest bidder.
I couldn't even stomach their debates because it was more like watching spoof. To tell you the truth, I think my one year old great-granddaughter would run circles around them in the intellect department. BTW, she watched it with me. She tugged on my arm, pointed to them, threw her hand up facing the tv, and said, "Talk to the hand!" And requested that I put on Yo Gabba Gabba.
BTW, that Penn State incident with the child molester really upset me. You mean to tell me adults witnessed those incidents and did not say a mumbling word. What kind of people are they that witnessed it, but kept silent? They need to fire every last one of them. When adults stands back and let another adult sodomize a child, they are not worth two dead flies in my book. There are some really sick people out there and children are not safe. There is no way I could have stood back, witnessed something like that, and kept silent. Nope!
What is wrong with the Oakland Police? Are they suffering from fatigue or just plain old trigger happy? From the looks of this video, it was no reason to shoot the camera man. This is the third shooting that has been inflicted on those using no violence. Two Iraq soldiers and now the camera man has become a victim. Is Oakland a police state or rather city now?
I suspect the Oakland mayor had better forget about reelection. For those of you planning to go to Oakland Occupy Wall Street, it would be wise to invest in a bullet proof vest and helmet.
Evidently, hustling Uncle Herman Cain Ruckas never listened to Johnny Taylor's it's Cheaper to Keep Her. Oops, scratch that, I forgot Cain is another Clarence Thomas. Maybe, he should listen to Hank Williams Your Cheating Heart. The number of women are rising in Herman's case. Looks like there is a fourth one.
Well...I need to stock up on my popcorn because something tells me that this is one of those show and tale movements. In some ways, it's like watching the clowns perform at the circus. Although, I hate to say it, but it's something a little fishy about the blond and Cain drama. Although, Cain looks like the type that would pull that type of mess.
It's a wonder that MSM does not have an adultery poll up by now.
Not too long ago, she was an authority on racial profiling. Yup, she said racial profiling was a hoax. I got news for her, there are many black and brown people that think that old Annie needs to quit sipping on Gin and Juice or whatever it is she might be gulping down or snorting because she is beginning to remind folks of that "this is an egg, this Ann's brain" commercial.
In addition, Ann made some rather disturbing comment regarding a few things:
I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote. ~~ Commentary on Hannity & Colmes, Fox News, 1997-08-17~~
It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 — except Goldwater in '64 — the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.~~ As quoted in "An appalling magic" in The Guardian (17 May 2003)~
I wonder how she got out of those voter fraud registration cases of hers. A Sugar Daddy, maybe? Must have been fixed, so she wouldn't have to spend any time in the pokey. Nevertheless, Ann is noted for quite a few color aroused comments. Like the one where she said,
"Here's a little inside scoop about white people: We're not thinking about you. Especially WASPs. We think everybody is inferior, and we are perfectly charming about it." ~~Jackandcokewithlime~~
That's a good example of modern day white privilege with added accessories on it. Ann is well aware of her white privilege and doesn't mind flaunting it. Hey, come to think of it Pat Buchanan is quick to say black and brown folks are inferior. He too is a member of that Council of Conservatives Citizens, so you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out Ann's way of thinking regarding non-whites.
Those are just a few comments Ann has made, here is a list of quotes by Ann.
Back before the Civil Rights Movement took place, whites who murdered blacks that were tried in the so-called court of law back then would come to court smiling, joking, and laughing, and the jury would be grinning too. They knew beforehand, that they didn't have anything to worry about. The verdict would come back not guilty because the law was rigged in their favor. It didn't matter how much evidence was presented. In fact, it wouldn't have mattered if they had killed a black person in the court house in front of the sheriff, judge, jury, and citizens. Emmit Till's murderers went free and so did many others.
Alrighty, GOP party I think the people are starting to get the message. Your party wants the middleclass and poor people to pay more taxes, so you can give fat refund checks to billionaire and millionaires to supplement their fat bonus checks. Because when you get right down to it, and cut through the chase, that is exactly what your party is asking and campaigning for daily.
Rick Perry wants to give billionaires and millionaires a $500,000 tax break. Herman Cain has a 999 plan that helps the rich too and makes the middleclass and poor pay more. In fact, all of the GOP candidates as well as those who are already serving has been on one accord with giving the billionaires and millionaires more money, while squeezing the blood out of the average Joe and Jill.
In addition, the GOP wants to cut funding for schools, so that more dummies like them are churned out. You want to privatize grandma and grandpa's check, so that investors can get their grubby little hands on it and invest in deals that there's no guarantee are stable in profits and a steady flow of money. Sorta like how the people lost a lot of money on their 401K. In other words, risk your retirement fund playing something similar to Russian Roulette.
On your list of things of wants is deregulate more, so that people will die sooner from pollution in the air and contaminated water. Drill more, so that accidents like the gulf coast can kill our marine life.
There is one thing, I'm curious about. If the GOP cuts 1.2 trillion worth of programs, what will our taxes be used for? I pray that it is not Congress salary. In fact, cutting the Congress retirement pensions would really trim the budget. In fact, a big fat pay cut as well wouldn't hurt either along with some cuts to their medical benefits. They should contribute more money into their medical plan too. Eliminate those long paid vacations they seem to take too many of as well. The Congress needs to share in the pain for once instead of bypassing themselves. Everytime they take time off to close for months at a time, it should be leave without pay.
The Occupy Wall Streets Folks should be gathering up signatures to put that on the next election ballots in every single state. Not only that, signatures to end lobbying and to make it against the law for CEO's to receive big fat bonus checks and put a cap on those bonuses by knocking off a few of those zeroes. Don't leave out making it against the law to outsource jobs and still get tax credits.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
