A THOUGHT ON THAT EXCERPT FROM GRACE JONES’ NEW MEMOIR

I adore Grace Jones and always have. So of course I’m orgasming over her book and this excerpt. But I’m really getting sick of sensationalized headlines, which can belittle the person whose opinion is being expressed in favor of some buzz topic. Remember that John Waters article which was widely forwarded recently with some title like “We Can’t Even Make Fun Of Caitlyn?” I guess in a way Waters was playing the press by commenting on the subject du jour, Caitlyn Jenner. But I kinda doubt that he brought up that dullard. Here’s a man considered to be a groundbreaking genius, and instead of discussing the London art exhibit which was the point of his interview, he’s forced to discuss things that are way beneath him. And barely mention his art.

So this headline blares that Grace “slays” pop stars who are popular now. What Grace presented was so strong that of course it’s been copied and of course it’s been an influence on many. While I understand that the gossip is the lure for many people, who may see Grace only as one hit wonder from the 80s who’s returned to read today’s pop stars, the most interesting line in this interview to me is this:

“…now that Vegas is the whole entertainment world filtered through the internet, through impatient social media.”

I’ve only encountered Grace out in party or work mode, but I relish hearing what this brilliant performer has to say about her own career, art, choices, love life, history, whatever. Not just singling out a passage in which she discusses her more famous inferiors just to make headlines. I didn’t even see her mention Kanye. She doesn’t need to “slay” anyone with gossip. She slays with her art. Her book comes out on 9/24 on Simon and Schuster.

I wonder what the original tune was?

DEMS SUPPORT DIPLOMACY WITH IRAN? NOT HILLARY!

So Americans are said to be weary of wars in the Middle East. And with his “historic” Iran deal, Democrats have (barely) demonstrated that they support Obama’s diplomacy with Iran over Republican’s constant cries for war. So if Americans want peace, particularly Democrats, how could this Hillary the hawk be Democrat’s choice for president? That doesn’t live with our battle fatigue or fondness for diplomacy. Check out Hillary’s 2008 comment and remember that she also foolishly voted for the Iraq war as NY Senator, when she could afford to buy that election. Be very careful when presidential wannabes make threats of war. No one ever imagined that George W. Bush would declare war on Iraq, but a hawk’s a hawk. All of those parents who signed their kids up in the military to straighten them up or get money for their college never dreamt that a decade of war against a country which never attacked us was on the horizon.

A VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN IS A VOTE FOR HUGS

I have absolutely no idea what is going on with the alleged Joe Biden campaign. Is he running? Is he not running? When will we know? October? Isn’t that kind of late? There are lots of questions and I have a few. I simply don’t trust the narrative that our news media is feeding us. I also don’t trust the Democratic party establishment to tell us the truth–just look at the tainted frontrunner Hillary. Remember how Senator Obama gave that rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention which put him on the map as a presidential contender? No senators or governors have been groomed as political rockstars other than Elizabeth Warren, who swears she isn’t running. I guess the party assumed that everyone would be happy with Hillary so why bother with any other choices?

Then Bernie, who is perceived as honest, started surging and Hillary’s looking weaker because can’t shake the scandals. Whether she’s guilty or not, the perception that she’s crooked has stuck. Suddenly a week ago, all the buzz was about Biden and Hillary got to comment to the press on the new candidate who might be running rather than repeatedly defend herself against alleged improprieties. Seemed like a distraction to me. To give Hillary a new topic to discuss apart from emails and to make Democrats feel that they have a wider choice of candidates as Republicans do. And perhaps the Dems are afraid that a truly progressive candidate like Bernie would force them to clean up their rotten act as a party should he take the lead. Democrats have become so “centrist” (aka GOP lite) under Obama that the last thing they want is a candidate who would actually tax the rich, tax the corporations, break up the big banks, defense industry etc. Establishment Dems are too busy taking donations from these groups to speak out against them as Bernie does.

Then we hear that Biden has met with Elizabeth Warren and that she has suggested that she won’t run for the Senate in 2020. Is this a smokescreen to make Dems who aren’t thrilled with Hillary think: “Stick with the Democrats even though they no longer represent working people, because they may represent working people in 2020 if Liz runs?” Then Biden met with Obama, who is said to have OKed his VP’s run to replace him. Yet Obama hasn’t endorsed either Hillary or Biden. There’s some suggestion often repeated on the news that while Clinton has locked up most of the campaign cash, there are still some “Obama Democrats” who never cared for her and would back Biden if he ran. So he’s opening investigative committee or whatever. I think the party just trying to have a back-up in case Hillary, the one dud the party focused all their efforts on, tanks.

So in other words, Biden’s looking for money. We’re fed a story about how he has to check with his family to see if they can hold up to the rigors of another campaign after the death of Joe’s son. Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer at 46, urged his father to run. Look, I don’t want to make light of a tragic death but I have no personal connections to the Biden family. Should a possible leader of the free world be checking with his family to see if they’re ok with his run? Or should Biden run based on his son’s dying wish, however heartfelt? It all sounds very touching, but I’d like for a potential president to come with a bold vision for the entire country–not whether or not he’s resolved his family drama.

And that’s Joe’s problem. He has no vision other than Hillary’s. He’s perceived as an average guy who takes Amtrak to work so he might appeal to workers. That’s why Obama picked him as VP–Joe appeals to working class white males who just couldn’t get behind Obama. Unions have started to endorse Biden’s run, despite the fact that Bernie is their most outspoken champ. And Biden didn’t say much about unions as VP when Obama turned his back on Michigan and Wisconsin when their GOP governors shredded union rights in those states. Remember Obama’s campaign claim that he would put on his comfy shoes and march with unions if they needed help? I guess he couldn’t find those shoes because that’s yet another campaign promise Obama reneged on. Where was Biden, union supporter, during that fiasco? Where was Biden denouncing Obama’s secret trade deal, the TPP, which EVERY union bashed because it will help kill the few remaining manufacturing jobs left in the US? Bernie was slamming the TPP. Hillary called it the “gold standard” of trade deals.

Biden came out in favor of gay marriage before Obama, so there’s that. I think that was a heavily orchestrated way of safely seeing if there was any outrage over the VP’s stance before the president made a move. When there wasn’t much pushback, spineless Obama stepped in and said he too supported gay marriage after polls showed that a majority of Americans supported it. How brave! What leaders! The press releases claimed that Biden went commando with his gay marriage support–the White House, it was claimed, knew nothing about the “ground-breaking” announcement the VP would make. Yeah, right. But if Joe was speaking out of turn, that’s actually one thing he is known for: gaffes. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. So maybe the party establishment feels they need a loose cannon to grab headlines and compete with Trump’s loud mouth.

Other than gay marriage and gaffes, the primary way in which the VP has been presented in almost seven years is the affectionate way that he greets politicians of both parties at official events. Firm handshakes, witty repartee, complimenting the womenfolk, pinching babies’ cheeks–even of GOP offspring! So if you want a candidate who represents hugs, Biden’s your guy!

Speaking of guys, I suspect Biden’s sex is another of his assets. Many backward people in this country don’t feel that the presidency is a job for a woman, which is sad. But in it’s desperation and disappointment with Hillary who has failed to gin up the base despite her immense campaign coffers, the Democratic party establishment needs to snatch support however they can. So vote for Biden if you want Hillary in male form. Maybe Hillary will pick Biden as her VP. That could halt any progressive policies from being discussed and keep the Democrats in their centrist position which has failed the 99% during Obama’s two terms.

BENGHAZI AND HER EMAIL SCANDALS ARE THE LEAST OF HILLARY’S WORRIES

I love to see people leaping to Hillary’s defense because they think she’s been cleared of any wrongdoing on either her email scandal and Benghazi. These two issues may well be created by her enemies on the right or in the media. Fine! Now start debunking the other many reasons why she’s a crooked, Wall Street-funded hawk who will change nothing for the better.

CROOKED SENATORS REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE IS MAN-MADE

Senators just voted that climate change is not man-made. They must be paid a fortune by big polluters, oil companies and the like. And while the Senate has a GOP majority, Democrats proved their greed over leadership and concern for the environment as well with this vote. How can our lawmakers know less than we do? And fly in the face of scientific research? Both parties suck. Not to mention the absurd Obama having the nerve to visit Alaska for a photo op to speak about climate change–right after approving Shell’s off-shore arctic drilling. Did I mention that Shell has a bad record on safety and should a spill happen, the severe weather conditions would make clean-up impossible? But I guess we can look at the silver lining–our corrupt, greedy lawmakers have at least admitted that climate change exists. They just refuse to name it’s cause so that they can’t propose a solution. Since that solution would cut into the profits of the corporations which bribe them. If you’re concerned about climate change and your representatives in Congress and the White House aren’t, then they don’t actually represent what you want.

US Senate refuses to accept humanity’s role in global climate change, again

GUARDIAN: “It is nearly 27 years now since a Nasa scientist testified before the US Senate that the agency was 99% certain that rising global temperatures were caused by the burning of fossil fuels.
And the Senate still has not got it – based on the results of three symbolic climate change votes on Wednesday night.
The Senate voted virtually unanimously that climate change is occurring and not, as some Republicans have said, a hoax – but it defeated two measures attributing its causes to human activity.”

FOR LABOR DAY, SOBERING STATISTICS ON LABOR FROM BERNIE SANDERS

I knew that unemployment hit blacks harder–51.3% of black high school grads are without work–but white youth with high school diplomas don’t fare much better at 33.8%. Unemployment is still an epidemic. We never recovered from the recession as you often hear from the press and under both Bush and Obama, CEOs are the main ones doing well as well as most wealth flows to the 1%. And Clinton would do little to change this nasty trend. She’d have no desire to–she’s bought by the CEOs who love to see workers doing badly–in this country, where we are demanding higher wages. The CEOs love to see employment improve in countries like Vietnam, where they can buy labor for 75 cents an hour. In honor of Labor Day, here are some sobering statistics on employment from Bernie Sanders and the LA Times.

OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE HYPOCRISY

This petition is very kind to Obama to claim he’s “in denial” over his hypocrisy on climate change, which he had the nerve to spout in Alaska after greenlighting Arctic offshore drilling which has environmentalists hopping mad. Obama isn’t in denial, he’s a highly intelligent man who knows good and well that he’s selling our climate’s health to the highest bidder. What other planet were you going to live on after greed destroys this one? Addressing climate change was one of Obama’s stated top three goals of his second term, and we get talking out of both sides of his mouth? Please sign if you agree.
Sign the petition to President Obama:

“Climate leaders don’t drill the Arctic. Talking about the urgency of climate change while allowing massive fossil fuel extraction isn’t leadership, it’s hypocrisy. Science says we must not burn 80% of known fossil fuel reserves, including all Arctic oil. President Obama, to lead on climate, you must Keep It In The Ground.”

BEST OF MAE WEST FILM CLIPS

Best of Mae West :)

Mae West - love her! here's her best lines.. <3 ~ Sarcastic Bitch of a Mother

Posted by Sarcastic Bitch of a Mother on Sunday, June 21, 2015

Ya gotta love Mae. Not that pretty, not that thin and her first movie was made when she was 40. Before that, she put on huge Broadway shows including transvestites! I think one such production got her arrested. And my fave Mae tribute–she used to darken the teeth of every woman she shared the stage with–to make her own choppers seem brighter. Demented. (Gotta try it!)

PETITION OF THE DAY

Our tax system is upside down – big corporations pay lower tax rates than local small businesses and the ultra wealthy pay lower tax rates than the rest of us.

But one way that our tax system does help people afford the basics is by giving them tax credits for work (Earned Income Tax Credit) and for child care (Child Tax Credit). But some key provisions within these credits won’t be around forever. We need Congress to do the right thing and make these key provisions permanent so families can continue to make ends meet.

Click here to tell Congress to make these provisions permanent!

When Congress returns from their break this fall, Republicans will be looking at extending huge tax giveaways to big corporations and Wall Street. Instead of more tax breaks for corporations that cut wages and ship our jobs overseas, Congress should be boosting tax credits for hard-working families that help families provide for their children and meet the basics.

Click here to tell Congress to stand up for an America that works for all of us, not just the wealthy!

These pro-work tax credits help millions of hard-working Americans make ends meet, go to work, and provide the basics for their children. Without them, it will be harder to pay for things like childcare and transportation that help keep these families working.

Thank you for all that you do,

AN INTERESTING TAKE ON KIM DAVIS’S RELIGIOUS OBJECTION TO GAY MARRIAGE

This is an interesting meme, not only because my parents are Quaker. But it begs the question: Why aren’t other Christian denominations also pacifists if they worship Jesus, the Prince Of Peace? Maybe because often people can’t even understand their own religions which they claim to worship and give money to. Instead, churches in this country actually offer shooting lessons. 11947664_10153646698809255_6325213450037414338_n
