Sojourner's Place

i ain't sayin'...

but I'm sayin'...

**After signing the Switch Over petition to sponsors of the Olympic Games, I received an auto-response email from Anheuser-Busch. Really pissed me off as it was very clear from their response that the care and well-being of the Clydesdales mean more than the blood and human suffering occurring in Darfur. To paraphrase they said that they are hopeful that diplomatic conversations and Bush's efforts will put and end to the crisis. Yeah! Right! So I tore them a new one!

**In Bid (or Spades for you post-baby boomers), if you cut with a trump when you should have followed suit you just reneged. The definition of renege is (1)To fail to carry out a promise or commitment and (2)To fail to follow suit in cards when able and required by the rules to do so. Well, by definition the leaders of the Group of Eight richest nations are set to backtrack on their landmark pledge at the 2005 Gleneagles Summit in 2005 to increase development aid to Africa to $25 billion a year. Now, that's just plain low down. These rich countries need to get off their a$$ and keep their promise to provide aid to the Continent that they have raped and pillaged d*mn near since the beginning of time. Please tell them about themselves and while your at it you can join ONE.org to stay up on future developments. Much obliged for the heads-up on this Ms. Lady Deborah!

**In Texas you can kill someone to protect your property, stop arson, burglary, robbery, theft or criminal mischief at night. In Chicago you can have sex with a child and video tape it and get away with it. Wonder if the color of the victims have anything to do with it?

**Kudos to the due diligence of the FBI. Seems that some G-men recently spent two days gathering evidence in the 1946 mass lynching in Georgia. Four people were brutally murdered in this the last documented lynching in the United States. The victims were two black sharecropper couples were shot hundreds of times and the unborn baby of one of the women cut out with a knife.

**What's all the hooplah with Wesley Clark's evaluation of John McCain's military service in Viet Nam? McCain, a naval av-i-a-tor (like Mayo in An Officer and a Gentleman) flew in...dropped some bombs...and flew out. Yeah, he got captured and spent 5 years as a POW; but he didn't see the affects of the bombs he dropped, the flag-draped body bags, or the other horrors of that war that most Viet Nam vets I know won't even talk about. So what did Clark say that was so wrong? And another thing! Who served with McCain? Where are they? Still alive? Dead? What? Can you say Manchurian Candidate? Hey! I ain't sayin'...I'm just sayin' (don't want no unmarked vans outside my crib)

**I predict that we will open up a diplomatic relationship with Cuba in an effort to get at the oil in their Gulf. Hey, Bush has already put that in motion by allowing us to send Cubans cell phones, next we'll be able to get their cigars legally...AND THEN THE OIL! Gotta get it before China does!

**Empty nesters and folks without children are spending thousands of dollars to adopt monkeys and treat them like babies. They're dressing them up, changing diapers, and even having birthday parties. They never have to worry about them growing up and asking for the keys to the Benz. Eternal babies or so they think until these little Capuchins go ape-sh*t (pun intended) the dumba$$es wonder why? Duh! Capuchins = Monkey = Animal = NOT DOMESTIC (i.e., WILD ANIMAL)!

**So, we all know that ARRAH got off regardless of the video tape of him doing what he was doing to that young girl at his own self's house. But the real kicker here is that ain't nobody talking about the fact that its a video out there with an adult man doin' the do with a minor! The celebrity of the case out-weighed the despicable act itself. So, I eagerly signed the petition
BLACK MEN AGAINST THE EXPLOITATION OF BLACK WOMEN. Anybody can sign it. Much obliged for the heads-up on this one Francis "Hussein" L. Holland.

Like I said...I Ain't Sayin', but I'm Just Sayin'

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner's Place ain't got nothing more to say.

SjP,

I received one of those responses too. *sigh*

Excellent post on a topic that is important enough to continue using our published voices to bring attention to it.

We are on the same page about site feng shui! I like what you've done!

Thanks for the updates. I'd not heard about the monkey business. Folks have gone crazy around here. Next they'll start marrying animals. SMDH.

@ MLD, I was wondering if you'd gotten one of AB's emails. I just could not believe the inhumane response. Had to have a real discussion with my best half about this last night. He's a Bud drinker. Much to my amazement, he agreed to boycott them. WOW! will wonders never cease!

You noticed!!! Much obliged!

@ AJ, hadn't heard about this either until last night on TV. I couldn't believe it. My best half and I sat watching in real disbelief for about 10 minutes. I told him "go ahead say it". To which he immediately replied: "WFASCMF". This might be a new one, but think about it for a while and I'm sure you'll figure it out. Hint: who do you know who would do something like this? :>0
