… What was Neal Patrick Harris thinking ? [#tasteless Oscar joke]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 4th,2015

.. unfortunately , it was part of a pattern of poor [and in bad taste] comments ..

.. Harris has recovered from the post – Doogie Howser slump to become a big acting and comedy star . However , it does not give him license to make an ass of himself on the stage …

.. I think that the Film Academy will give Harris another shot at next year ‘ s Oscars . Hopefully , he will fire his writing team , and work his buns off to do better …

… No , Oprah , It is not (about Obama) …

.. it is not because he is a black man .

.. It is because Obama is the worst President in American History . He thinks he is a political God . He is not . He is human , a failed man , an indecent man .

.. He has abused his power . He has used his executive discretion to rewrite laws in ways that he wants them to be rewritten . Because he cannot get his proposals through Congress , he takes it upon himself to make the change on his own . Which is against the U.S. Constitution . When he gets into a political jam (ie , ObamaCrapCare ‘ s failed rollout) , he makes administrative “fixes,” ones that even in small (or large) ways , fundamentally change the character of a law . The power to make such a change is one that a POTUS does not have . Oprah attacks people for opposing His Lordship ?

… Oprah , You Should Know Better ! [Emmett Till] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 5th,2013

.. Many folks have waded into the controversy over George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin . Until today , Oprah Winfrey had not been one of them .

.. Unfortunately , she stuck her foot in her mouth , BIG time . She compared Martin to a young unfortunate and innocent black

teenager , Emmitt Till . Till , for those who do not know was from Chicago . He had traveled to visit family in Mississippi in the Summer of 1955 . He did (for then) the not such a good ideal act of giving what is known as a “wolf whistle” at a white woman .
Till was murdered for what he did . Nothing else .

.. It gets worse . The local white men were not tried for years . Even though many folks knew who had done the deed . When they were , they were found not guilty . Till was an innocent , having committed a transgression (for the time) for which he was unaware of .

.. Justice was eventually done . As it was for Trayvon Martin . Martin was , though , a street punk , who used drugs , who stole jewelry , and benefited from the scandalous acts of many who failed to properly and evenly enforce the law in a non – partial manner . If they had , it is fairly likely that Trayvon Martin would still be alive , today .

.. Comparing an innocent (Emmett Till) to a street punk (Trayvon Martin) is the height of outrageous , Oprah . You are a learned , experienced , and educated , and accomplished woman . You should have gosh darned well known better .
