Your place for social commentary

The Thursday 10

This week’s blog is all about the 10 things I loved and loathed this week!

  • LOVED the Colin Powell Endorsement. The timing was perfect, and it further validated for some independents that Obama is the man to change this country. This endorsement from Colin Powell, should be the coup de grâce for the Republicans.

  • LOATHED the George Will and Rush Limbaugh commentary. Colin Powell is a retired general that is pretty much the highest ranking black man to ever serve in a Republican Administration and he’s endorsing a liberal Democrat, not the Navy pilot and fellow Republican. It didn’t take long for the right wingers to come out and try to minimize the endorsement and say Powell only endorsed Obama because he’s black. It is an insult and disgrace to assume that intelligent African American people will blindly follow each other down the road of damnation simply because we share the same skin color.

  • LOVED The Secret Life of Bees. It’s a cute movie, and if you read the book you’ll especially enjoy it. Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, and Alicia Keyes all did wonderful jobs, and if you are a fan on The Wire….Mike is in this one too!

  • LOATHED the “I thought I was on a slave ship” defense. Brian Nichols’s defense team is trying to get a not guilty by reason of insanity verdict. To that end, they are trying to convince the jury that Mr. Nichols had “snapped” while in custody and thought he was on a slave ship. He killed all those people in an effort to free himself from the belly of a slave ship. Now, I took AASP 202 with Dr. Sharon Harley, not to mention countless other African American Studies classes during my time at UMCP. It has been a while, but never in any of my studies do I recall there being automatic weapons on slave ships! My memory certainly isn’t what it used to be, but I would almost bet my Maxwell tickets on the fact that there weren’t any Glock 9’s during the Middle Passage.

  • LOVED the exposing of Sara Who’s expenditures. Not Miss Small-town USA shopping in Neiman’s and Saks!!! They claim the clothes will eventually be donated to charity, but I can’t wait to see how the scandal of her toting her kids all across the country on the Alaska tax payers dime turns out!

  • LOATHED the overabundance of neck tattoos and bad weaves. Is there a 2 for 1 sale going on someplace in Atlanta? Pay $100 to get a quick weave done by Bunny and’nem, then get a panther tat on your neck for free. YUCK!

  • LOVED another week of Warren Sapp on Dancing With The Stars. I only watch the show long enough to see him dance, and this week he got down with the Hustle!

  • LOATHED the week of dud play by Fantasy Football Superstars. While I won in three of my five leagues this week, the inconsistent play of superstars like T.O., Peyton, Braylon Edwards, and LaDainian, have many leagues in an uproar.

  • LOVED to LOATHE The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It’s like a train wreck and I can’t look away. When I compare these women to The Real Housewives of New York it becomes painfully obvious that there is nothing worse than new money! I’m not going to name names, but unless you are a Rockefeller, Kennedy, or possibly Will and Jada, why do you need a “governess”? It’s true what they say…money can’t buy class!

Well that was my Thursday 10. You may not have time to run down a full 10, but what did you love and loathe this week?

  2. OMG Jerzee Chic,
    You hit the nail on the head with the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
    What in H*ll is an Estate Manager? SHE MADE DAT SHYT UP!!!!
    It looks to me like she is trying to hire a crew to help her take care of those dayum bad azz kids, lololo…Bless her heart….
    It looks as though Lisa is the ONLY one with a REAL 9 to 5 job, I guess i do not understand why the ladies that don’t work, have personal assistants, creative directors, NANNIES,etc

    Oh, and I want to wake up one day with a cigarrette in my mouth and say ” i want to be a cuntry singer” ..I can’t belive Dallas Austin is wasting his time with this nonsense…

    But as Jerzee Chic stated, NEW MONEY….lolol

  3. Ok Jerzee Chick, it you want me to continue reading your blog…don’t talk about my man “Warren”, he is dancing for me. ROFLMAO! I just want to marry him, he is my idol.

    Ok, I agree with everything else, except I haven’t seen the Secret Lives of Bees, nor will I lower my IQ to watch the housewives. Next they will be on wifeswap for a reality check or maybe call Nanny 911.

    I am so disappointed in the performances this NFL season. I want my money back. I am tired of promoting whinny babies who only perform when they think they can make a good play.

    Keep Warren out of your keyboard and I will see you next week! 😉

  4. Loved Colin Powell’s endorsement. Such an elequent speaker. He let McCain and the Republican Party down gently but decisively. I think he has made it easier for other Republicans to do the same. Earlier in the year he said he is an American first and a Republican second.

    Loath Sara Palin and McCain. How dare they insinuate that Barack is an Elitist when she spent $150,000 on clothes for herelf, her husband and her children. She spent the equivalant of the price of someone’s house in a time when people can’t pay their mortgage. I want to know when they will be auctioning the clothes….FAT CHANCE!!!

    Note to Tony Romo….I’m LOSING POINTS!!!!!!

  5. Yes, Peyton Manning is killing me as well as Colston and Larry Johnson. Loathe

    Love: Phillip Rivers and Roddie White, these are the only two guys on my team that consistently produce numbers on a weekly basis….and Pitt D!

  6. As a far-away (Europe) Browns fan, I am always looking for new sites with Dawgs’ information.
