    My own beliefs are in my song

    There is a yellow one that won’t accept the black oneThat won’t accept the red one that won’t accept the white oneAnd different strokes for different folks I am in a discussion right now with a black man who is disgusted that my company has come out in support of HB 5. All major real estate corporations have come out in support of this law. It codifies the end of discrimination in housing due to sexual preference. He’s all about Chic-fil-A, (which incidentally I have never set foot in), and how God apparently hates fags. Dude. 50 years ago God hated negroes. You are not in good company. Let’s go…

    One trick is all that horse can do

    He’s a one-trick ponyOne trick is all that horse can doHe does, one trick onlyIt’s the principal source of his revenueBut when he steps into the spotlightYou can feel the heat of his heartCome rising through Don’t like the trade deal with China? Threaten them with tariffs. Get them to the table. Give our farmers a $16 billion bail out. Fly to Florida and play golf, it’s just money anyway. After all only liberals put solar panels on their houses. Right? I’m sure that’s what Sean Hannity told him in their late night bromance calls. Don’t like NAFTA? Threaten everyone with tariffs. The Canadians won’t fight back. That’s what Sean…

    Hold on real tight, it’s gonna be alright.

    Here’s the thing. HRC won the popular vote as of this morning. But that’s not the point. DJT won the electoral college and those are the rules. She has been gracious and instead of whining about it being unfair, she went and walked her dogs. That being said, when your guy wins have some compassion. Take a moment to go back in time. AIG just failed. Lehman Bros is gone. Your home lost 50% of it’s value. Gas is $5 a gallon and you’re unemployed. The stock market was around 8800, your 401k was devastated. How did you feel in 2008? 2012? Be honest with yourself. The other side feels…

    I can’t change your mind, you can’t change my color

    I am raging this fine Sunday morning. Goddammit.  How many more negroes have to die before white people figure it out?  Two more this week.  This week Charlotte Mecklenburg shot a man with traumatic brain injury.  The father of seven.  Killed him dead.  If that wasn’t outrageous enough Tusla police shot and killed a pastor.  A pastor whose father taught him to put his hands on the roof of the car when the police were jacking him up.  Did your Dad teach you what to do when you are being jacked up by the police?  Thought not.  Terrence Crutcher was a pastor and a father of four.  A God fearing…

    He said kill them before they grow

    And it’s time for me to weigh in on some bullshit. It’s football and that means Not For Long if you don’t get out there and execute.  It also means a whole bunch of bullshit.  First off, taking everyone off the field when someone has a boo boo?  Bullshit.  Crabtree’s penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct?  Bullshit.  And Kaepernick?  #ISitWithKaep.  Yep.  Why? Example:  I might have gone out and got a little tore up Friday night.  I took the Uber home.  Then I needed an Uber the next day to get back to my car.  A very nice black man picked me up.  I had to look twice because he looked a…

    So I’m begging you please man, don’t call the policeman

    And now, something horrible happened in Dallas.  I have to say, it was just a matter of time. This little gem was taken from a post when Eric Garner was killed back in 2014: Here’s the deal and I’ve been talking about this for months.  Everyone talks about how few Realtors are actually good at their jobs.  About 10% will really rock your world.  Another 10-15% can do a decent job.  The next 60% are just average.  They don’t do anything amazing but they don’t screw up fantastically either.  The last 20% are thieves, liars and cheats.  Completely incompetent.  Think about the field you’re in.  The same thing is true.…

    I’m a sniper with a hell of a scope

    I’m going to vent my spleen today.  And with good cause.  The bulk of the white population of this country really does not understand what the black experience is.  And if I see one more white twat on Fox News talking about it, I might just lose my mind. In the Bay Area we’re pretty integrated.  My friends are every machination of the rainbow.  But here’s the thing, if  you’re Filipino/black like one friend of mine, you’re black.  If you’re Japanese/black, you’re black.  If you’re white/black you’re black.  And you’re now at risk.  That’s right, perfectly innocent people who have some melanin in their skin are at risk.  Every one of…

    Must have a code that you can live by

    For every cause there is an effect.  The Turtle is struggling with that right now.  You let hate flourish and you end up with Donald Trump.  Melania is upset that her husband is being compared to Hitler?  “He wants to help America.  He wants to unite people”  She doesn’t get it.  He didn’t start out killing Jews.  He started out blaming Jews for what was wrong with Germany.  And that united Germany.  Now do you get it?  Oh well it was worth a shot. More cause and effect.  We have a particularly selfish streak in our society right now.  We don’t compromise, we want what we want and the hell…

    And nothing but the truth so help your black ass?

    I’ve been super busy, selling a shit ton of real estate.  However, I have finally gotten pissed enough to take time out of my busy day to rage.  And rage I will. Y’all know I don’t like it when the police shoot dogs.  Nine times out of ten it’s unwarranted.  Now the police have been shooting negroes for years but now it’s just getting out of hand.  They’ve been shooting good negroes for no reason.  How am I going to get my house clean and my cotton picked if the police keep shooting all the negroes. Stop.  Wait a minute. https://youtu.be/L_Hgh7sPDLM I think the NFL is blocking the youtube, but…

    Sing the rain on the roof on a summer night

    It’s time. I haven’t got off a good rant in a while.  Let’s do this! The precipitating factor was a comment on Kid President’s facebook page.  His comment was “We need to live in a world with fewer selfies and more #otherpeoplies”.  Cute for sure.  Although my selfies with Bill the Dog make this world a better place, but I digress.  Someone commented “We need less ‘I’m offended’ and more ‘I’m listening’.”  On it’s face that sounds great.  Except for one thing.  Some shit is just goddamned offensive. I’m not listening to these assholes. ^That is a Getty Image apparent taken by Spencer Platt originally found on theroot.com That is…
