Y’all, Oprah Wants No Part of This President Life.

I had an opportunity to watch Oprah’s speech during the Golden Globes, and I too was mesmerized by her words. They were powerful, poised and on point so much that she had everyone in the room on their feet giving her a well-deserved standing ovation.

What followed her speech was a flurry of tweets and social media posts eluding to Queen O for president in the 2020 year…..

I don’t think she said she was doing all that now.

While I do understand that not a day goes by that we as a Black community do not count the days until we are free of the regime that is the Trump Administration, I also do not agree that we want every person of color and elect that they should be the next president.  Why?  I mean, who would want that responsibility on them anyway?!

I don’t mean to stand on my soapbox for long, but I just have to say, let’s keep Queen O where she is for now.  I don’t want to sign a petition for her to be President 2020, nor would I hope no one forces her into it (which I doubt anyone can force Oprah to do anything, she’s good and grown).  I have never really seen her in many political realms, so she may not even be feeling this, y’all.  I think we should all just save the clip of her speech, play it like a TED talk when you are needing some inspiration or some motivational words, and move on from it.  Until then, unless the rumor comes from Oprah Winfrey herself that she is running for President, I don’t want no parts and I won’t support it until I see the “Oprah for President” bumper stickers in mass production.

Is Your Pen Out of Ink Yet?

So far, we have managed  to survive 11 days of a the Trump presidency, and I’m trying not to lose my mind.  I’m really shocked that his isn’t out of ink by now, with all the nonsense he has put his signature on; yea I said it, nonsense.  It has been more of a blatant show of a lack of respect or care for the potential lives that are put in the balance at the hands of these executive orders.  I’ve been trying to follow most of what has been going down in the White House, while also trying to limit my exposure to it (as a method of self-care).  Most of the time it ends in me shaking my head and praying that we continue to work through this, y’all.  I’m wondering if Kendrick was telling the truth, are we gon’ be alright?

From reigniting the fuel to constructing the Dakota  Access Pipeline, abilities to utilize “extreme vetting measures” (and no one can articulate that) for people entering into the country, hiring freezes…S.M.H!  I can’t keep it all straight and quite frankly it’s getting irritating hearing about all the crap he’s been doing that makes absolutely no sense.  Unfortunately, we have 3 years, 11 months and 28 more days left of the tomfoolery that is a Trump Administration.

And to that small population of people who are now regretting your vote for Donald Trump; I applaud your bravery for speaking out about how you feel and respect your honesty.  I feel like the people in this group didn’t read the fine print on a contract, and you always have to read the fine print.  It’ll get you every time.

Alright, this is all I wanted to say.  I’m going back under my “I don’t like politics” blanket and try to ride this presidency out.

Pray for me and I’ll pray for you.

I fought Reality TV and Reality TV Won Week 2 #52Essays2017

I do indulge sparingly in a bit of reality TV, but to feel like you’re making a special appearance in a real life reality tv show? Mind boggling.

Eggshell Gal Friday

I fear I may become a victim to a real life reality show. I have been run over by the inevitable. The “dumbing” down of America has finally been successful. We are officially about to embark in a real life “idiocracy,”with coverage 24/7 for ratings.  Perhaps I am being punished by the universe for making fun of the crazy reality show fans I have judged all these years. Yes, I am a reality show hater. I am guilty of making crude comments about the K sisters and their fake butts and faces and of poking fun from my high nose at the real housewife franchise and all those other shows which ironically are aired by the learning channel. I have judged the IQ of the watchers. (I won’t apologize for offending anyone). It appears they won (the fans did) and not only did they win, they placed their top king…
