Perception


 

OKAY ALREADY!!! I already have a “hard time” with so many “overly” urban slangs…..dress codes….laws….etc..etc..etc.. However, why is it totally alright to interview a world leader with a huge urban hat on your head? I am almost 100% percent sure that the INTERVIEWER may have been advised to wear something to COVER UP his multiplicity of MASSIVE dread lock collection that moves out of control on his head  However, with a suit on and an upgraded version of a MIX BETWEEN a doo – rag and a baseball cap still is not appropriate – if he is Muslim, wear a turban but he isnt.. so that is I guess – indeed my point…

Should I care? Maybe…..maybe not – but I am just so over people as well as our current president being OVERLY way too cool about everything! Then with the whole White House ” cute joke ” with the 2012 Summer Olympic Gymnast was just soo should NOT have been posted in the media! You can do all of the “inside jokes” that he wants to but does it ALL have to hit the media?

I dont want the world leader being known for listening to gangster rap either! If he likes Jay – Z and rapper 50 cent, that is FINE and his choice BUT can we keep that on the hush? Ummm maybe because in their lyrics they are calling women bit___ and hoes?… I  mean really… especially since HE THINKS so highly of his lovely wife Lady Michelle Obama and he adores his two little girls? Oh yeah… Beyonce is very beautiful but her attire and some of her lyrics as well are not  suitable for little girls, right Mr and Mrs Obama? Try NOT to share every little detail please! Maybe Beyonce can teach your daughter what the meaning of ” A Hustler ” is… it is one of her songs and I am SURE that you would not mind because Beyonce is a role model for both of yor daughters… So MENTOR AWAY!!!

 

Maybe I am crazy huh? Stop being ” soo cool” and start being ” soo respected”….. I want A WORLD LEADER to be respected and not just ” deemed as being cool and having swag”….UUUGGGHHH!!

More Political Talk / Views


Every belief that citizens try to express politically is rooted in some philosophy or religion or some set of assumptions about society and its
well-being. They do not come from out of nowhere. Religiously-based convictions about society and morality are as legitimate as those that spring from non-religious philosophies. Hence, Christians, Muslims, or Jews may seek to get laws passed that are rooted in their religious convictions. Such laws are appropriate as long as they have a secular purpose and do not constitute an establishment of religion.

Whether these laws are wise or worthy of enactment must be judged by whether they promote the common good as judged by national values not by the fact that they are or are not rooted in the religious faith of those who support them.

A religious foundation is neither required not forbidden. Neither secular humanism nor religious faith is privileged in this regard. Ideally and in principle, religious believers should not seek to get laws passed on religious grounds but because they express the values of the secular society. These norms and goals are defined by the founding documents and cultural traditions as they have come to be embedded in the common life. For example, if people of faith want to crusade for universal health coverage, e. g., they should argue for the policy not because the Bible or the Pope authorizes it or because God wills it but because it promotes “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” and because Congress is constitutionally permitted to spend money to provide for the “general welfare.”

Likewise, religious groups that seek to outlaw racial or gender discrimination should make their case on the claim that it would be good for society as a whole not on the fact that it is authorized by their religious faith.  In practical terms, however, if believers feel that distinguishing between the religious
basis and the political implications of their faith is an intolerable splitting of a unitary set of beliefs, then let them act accordingly. If  people actually
convince other voters to support legislation because the Bible, the Pope, Buddhist teachings, the Koran, or church doctrine mandates it, not much can be done about it except to make an effort to persuade them that there is a better way.

TRUST ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We cannot determine or control the reasons why people vote or support the policies they do or prevent them from convincing others to do the same. In the voting booth citizens are a law unto themselves. They can vote for whatever or whoever they want for any reason that motivates them. It is pointless to demand purity of principle on this matter. Voters act out of prejudice, self-interest, racial identity, ignorance, and for all sorts of other good and bad reasons, including their religious beliefs, philosophical commitments, and a devotion to justice based on American principles. Let us be realists about the matter.

 

Democracy is an untidy, often VERY messy,  matter…..IF you do not believe me… look at AMERCIA! Ugghhhhh……

The people can do what they want restrained only by Constitutional mandates. But it is better when acting politically in the public arena for believers to translate  religiously-based beliefs into the traditions, language, and values of the secular order. This is called for as a matter of principle. It is advisable pragmatically as well, since the tying of policy or voting explicitly to the tenets of a particular
religion, denomination, or sect may repel  large number of voters and hinder rather than further the cause.

I love Politics AND History……………

2 Headaches……


I tried so hard not to laugh at this but I was not able to ….  The guy above me needs Gabbby Douglas and then I felt bad for chuckling so hard and I stopped UNTIL this little boy below…I felt HORRIBE that I laughed.. but where is the adult supervision at this bowling alley? I am serious!

Whew Jesus, the little boy slipping on the floor and with this HEAVY bowling ball almost knocking him through the floor was so not cool! Did you see how HARD this little boy’s HEAD SMACKED THE FLOOR? Some serious damage was going on here….. Yikes……….

My Baby’s Tastebuds….


I have to admit that some days his after school snacks are a break between healthy and unhealthy…… I hate to say unhealthy because he does have a variety of all of the food groups….. We are ALWAYS RIPPING AND RUNNING with his activities and cooking at home is ummmm….. like a 2 day a weekk thing! This boy has something to do EVERYDAY of the week literally…..

I do know that we are cutting out the bread…. well at least he can have bread twice a week but that is it…. He eats tons of fruit…. tons of Gatorade… tons of SPECIAL K Products and even a great deal of protein bars….. However, Wish I had the money to just build a chain of gyms for kids….I know that I would make a killing because at least 85 percent of kids in AMERICA is overweight – INCLUDING MINE!

Crazy thing is that he is in shape like he weighed like a skinny kid….

From martial arts…. he is alright… From soccer..he is alright… From baseball…he is alright… From basketball…he is alright..

I should have went ahead and signed him up for swimming – I know that would have SERIOUSLY helped us both shed some pounds….

Just even THINKING about putting this boy in another activity gives me a panic attack! LOL – It is just plumb exhausting and in a minute… His part time nanny will become his mother because I am tired!

It isnt too late but who wants to pay $300.00 for yet ANOTHER ACTIVITY! I already have to buy another instrument for this kid….. I tell him that he costs too much and needs to get a job… His reply is mom I did ask you to work but you said that I am too youn! UGGHH….. ” HUSH IT BOY “

So Weird!!!


 

A young Kenyan mother has named her newly born twin boys after the U.S. president-elect and his defeated Republican challenger.

Millicent Owuor, 20, gave birth to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on Wednesday at the Siaya District Hospital in southwest Kenya, according to the Standard.

Owuor told the Kenyan news outlet her sons’ names will always remind her of the election in the United States.

The hospital is near the village of Kogelo, where where President Barack Obama’s father was born and where his 90-year-old step-grandmother, Sarah Obama resides.

Residents of Kogelo emphatically celebrated Obama’s victory as results from the United States were reported.

Shouts of “Hail our Kogelo son” and “Obama is coming, open the road for him” rang through the air as locals blew vuvuzelas horns in celebration, the Standard reports.

“If Obama did not win, I believe most projects here would stall,” Joseph Onyango told the Kenyan media outlet.

Kenyans hope Obama’s reelection will harken a fresh start with U.S. relationships with Kenya, Reuters reports.

Obama visited sub-Saharan Africa just once during his first four years – a stop of less than a day in Ghana, according to Reuters.

If Obama does visit Kenya, maybe baby Barack can meet his namesake, and baby Mitt meet the U.S. President.

Seems A Tad Bit Rude -


What are you trying to say? That people who are voting for President Obama do not work? Hmm…….

Mitt, you are acting and talking like Vice President Joe Biden now…… Saying ANYTHING and it is coming from out of your neck!!! UGGHH I am not a huge President Obama Supporter – HOWEVER – this is a very SLY comment Mitt! It is so nice for you to show your REAL COLORS!

Cannot wait until this 2012 Presidential Election is OVER….. Praying God will allow the right person in office – whomever that may be.
