Dia Diezinueve~ What Do You Think About Religion?…




What do you think about politics?


This is gonna be a QUICK blog as well. Just like with my regrets and gay marriage, I have little to say because it’s one of those things where you just let it be what it is. I don’t regret too many things. I don’t try and dictate people’s lives and I don’t argue over things that are opinion-based.

Religion? Whatever you believe in is between you and your God/demigod/etc. If you believe in Darwinism and feel there is no God…so be it. If you believe in Jesus as your savior…or Muhammad as your prophet…or you believe in Buddha, Yahweh, Jehovah, Tao, or whomever you bow to…it’s YOUR business. I believe in what I believe in and I respect FULLY who it is that you decide to worship…if anyone.



The quickest way for me to dismiss you is for you to be judgmental based on your beliefs and try to label me as a non-believer for not agreeing with you.


Politics? I hate that word. Politics (the word) always reminds me of the concept of “spinning” things for palatability rather than the truth of affairs. All politics is to me is several groups of people deciding what’s best for a larger group of people. I don’t argue politics because the moment you speak your mind and say something that doesn’t fit into a perfect box…you get called out and labeled. Communist, Fascist, Republican, Democrat…blah blah.


I’m on the side of RIGHT. Equality. Action. Change. Respect. Rights…and the ability to be who you are in this so-called land of freedom without being shoved into a corner.


My ex used to piss me off when he said, “You’re either WITH me or AGAINST me…”. I hate that idea. Being FOR you doesn’t even mean that I believe what you believe. It just means that we have at least ONE common interest. I’d rather rebel and be against you, even if you have a point…then to mindlessly be with you and not understand why I’m there. 


In the words of any evasive interviewee: “No Comment…” LOL

"O" Really?





Damn, this comes right after a blog saying I hate “political” debates.


Oh well…lol


Oprah came on today and she had ex-detective, Mark Fuhrman on. If you’re too young, or you were smoking that shit at the time…Mark Fuhrman was one of the detectives who reported on the Simpson case in ’95 when Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered outside the former Mrs. Simpson’s condo. Mark was the one accused of withholding and tainting evidence…namely the infamous glove that “didn’t fit”.


Anyway, during the trial of the century…Ms. Oprah Winfrey declared that she would not be interviewing nor discussing the trial. She made it clear (not sure if she SAID what she believed happen or just inferred) that she believed in OJ’s guilt. She said she would NOT have anyone on the show, ESPECIALLY OJ, himself when she had very definite ideas as to what happened.


::pause::


I’m all for people taking sides. Do you. Be on the side of right (or what side you FEEL) is right. I am NOT here to argue whether he did it or not. Twelve people said he didn’t…another 12 said he was “indirectly responsible” in a “wrongful death” suit against him in civil court. Either way you flip that meat…the man was acquitted criminally and crucified publicly. If you believe he did it…so be it. If not…so be it. What I always think is fascinating, is when people form such an opinion on an event they weren’t present for. THINKING he did it…FEELING he may have done it…and having a psychic premonition that he did or didn’t…still isn’t being there when Nicole and Ron took their last breaths. We’re all STILL assuming and that is the truth. Unless you had a bird’s eye view to it or wielded the weapon…you don’t know JACK…Jack!

For Ms. Winfrey to hypocritically turn around after the trial and interview the prosecuting lawyers Marcia Clark and Chris Darden…was a “wow” moment for me. I felt like she’d somehow compromised her credibility and word by doing so. This is a woman who has had KNOWN, CONFESSED murderers of women and/or children or molesters on her show. Whether by satellite or in person…she’s given plenty of non-Black offenders the chance to speak their piece. Why not OJ? I feel that there is a breech in her journalistic integrity. You as a media mogul…a BLACK woman who is a media mogul…where is your impartiality for a BROTHA? Yea…I just pulled out my Kween X on you. What’s up with that, O?


I’m not concerned for what side you’re on. It’s over. It happened. Those two people cannot be reanimated and placed back into the lives of their family. No amount of debate can do that. What I am speaking on is an ongoing thing that plagues our culture…celebrity and NON-celebrity. We are harshest on each other…in the name of fairness, which sucks elephantine alien balls.

I wonder if the Illuminati got to her. I wonder if they promised to multiply Amarillo’s Beef vs. Oprah debacle by 100 on her ass if she dare say a word. You don’t think they know her pull? How she can say, iPod nano and sell millions in a week? You don’t think they’d silence someone who has the pull to make millions of folks put down beef and cripple the bovine business? All I’m saying is…either O is one hell of a hypocrite…or the “enlightened ones” pulled her coat and promised to make Chinese food of her pups. #IJS


{{If you don’t see my blog tomorrow…it was nice knowing you all and I love you for following and reading, lol}}

NOW What?





Now what?…


It’s the question that often follows a litany of things that need doing, saying, changing…NOW what?


ANY one can form a list of to-do’s. Anyone can learn the knowledge, break down the truths and falsehoods…expose the intentions of something. Once that is accomplished…NOW what?


I told my sis, Maria…I don’t do all of the political, scientific, religious debates with folks. Not because I don’t have the mental cup o’noodles to slosh around in an argument with my peers…but because I hate all of that back and forth only to rest on the laurels of having proved my point. Is THAT the win? The point has been proven? I’m RIGHT…I’m the champion of the ole “say-n-sway”…so, I’m the HBIC (head brain in charge)? 


~waving hand in disregard~


Whatever…


It bores me to tears to go back and forth in civil debate about something that stays the same, but just changes places and players. What they’re doing to Obama, they did to Clinton (ironically both were elected behind a Bush)…but yea. After the initial screwing up of two terms of presidency…when the man came behind and tried to make right the wrongs of the Dumbfuck Family…he was criticized non-stop for not doing so in a timely fashion. Remember…you can fuck up in 10secs and it’ll take 10hrs to clean it up. Multiply that by days and years and it could go on and on.


Anyway…I hate having the almighty discussion of what’s wrong and no one is rolling up their sleeves on a daily basis and getting into the sludge of it. If you’re just good at running your mouth and you’re not affecting change by BEING the change…kindly STFU. Really. Or else you’re just a mouth running. Someone who enjoys being lauded for their lofty ideals and nifty ability to form a sentence.


If your platform is teens…find a community center or a school to do fairs and such at.


If your platform is AIDS awareness…find you a clinic or a hospital. Do some volunteering.


If you’re a politico…well throw your ass into the lion’s pit. Run for something. Start out as an alderman and work your way up to senate. DO SOMETHING.


As for me…I’m just fine, writing my poetry and blogs. Touching folks that I meet daily…doing God’s work in small but effective blessings. I don’t want to talk about it…I want to know that my life matters. I don’t want to brag it…I want to exhale at feeling as if I’ve brought something beautiful to someone’s life.

I do indeed respect the many people who blog daily and touch on the current events of the world…making them relate-able and palatable for our community and people. I just wish that SOME of those very folks didn’t use the world’s events as a deflector away from the life they are miserable in. Or as a way to be superior intellectually and not have much else to round out their personality. Your entire essence can NOT be of an aggressive, angry, political, adversarial kind. I’d love to read or hear more of a person’s life and see that they too have vulnerabilities.



Anyway…this became a rant out of nowhere. Perhaps the sick Kween needs to go lie her ass down somewhere and come back a less cranky blogger. lmao
