Hey fam,

Today is “National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day”. This is something that’s near and dear to us. Jax was a shelter pet. His previous person had to put him in the shelter because of where she moved she was unable to have pets (I don’t understand that). But anyway, I’m glad she did because we had this awesome little guy added to our family.

I’m always amazed at how much people will pay for a puppy. If you are into showing the dogs I completely understand the blood line thing. If you are just looking for a sweet lovable dog that will protect you check the shelter. Of course there are other areas to look, such as the rescue groups. If there’s a certain breed you want, there’s usually a rescue group for it.

So, if you want to add more life to your life, adopt a shelter pet. Oh and for you cat lovers, there’s always a need for a pet parents for them too. I’m going to enjoy the rest of the day with my awesome little guy, that my Dad was guided to adopt.

Hey fam!

Last night was the White House Correspondence Dinner. Just like last year the Toddler in Chief didn’t show up. Unlike last year, he did have a couple of representatives. That’s right fam, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and Kelly-Anne Conway were there to feel the burn.

This year’s roaster was Michelle Wolf. First you have to get by her voice. Lawd knows, it can be screechy like a hawk going after its prey. But she can be very funny. After her introduction, she laid down the rules that these are just jokes, folks. Off she went with the jokes.

I will say she roasted everyone. And I mean everybody from Trump to print media were roasted. After watching this years, I watched other years. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t looking at Michelle Wolf’s jokes as being too harsh. They weren’t. For those jokes that didn’t hit, it’s because there was more truth in it.

When Kanye West went on his 80 Twitter posts rant yesterday, I honestly could have given a damn. And as far as I was concerned, Mr. West burned his bridge with me years ago. So why blog about him now? Because he’s trending and I’m forced to cover all the craziness in the world.  Yes “forced”, and let me explain why. Now, in order to blog about something “positive”, you have to mention the “negative act” that got the “positive reaction”. And this is what today’s blog is all about. That good old “good versus evil” scenario. Hey, don’t judge me and just continue reading.

Anywhoozle, let’s do this. With all the craziness that Kayne West’s (Negative act) has shown these past few days with his series of asinine tweets, John Legend (Positive reaction) took to Twitter to “sound-off” on his series of tweets that represented “a voice of reason”. Look, who knows if those tweets were geared towards Mr. West directly, but I would like to think so.

Check John’s tweets below. Peace.

 

 

So it appears as if this Florida High School Senior, Noah Crowley didn’t pay attention in his history class. Because if he did, then young Noah would have known that his “clever” . . . NOT, “promposal” was offensive the moment he started etching those words out on his pristine whiteboard.

It seems as if Noah wanted to be original . . . creative this weekend when asking a fellow student to prom via in Snapchat. And of all the things that this Riverside High School senior could have done, like umm, “actually picking up his cell and asking her verbally“. He decided to be offensive instead with this “promposal” sign. Yep.

And the thing that “I” found more offensive than the sign itself, was that the chic responded back with a “heart-eyed emoji 😍” (She’s just as ignorant). After the tremendous “back-lash” that Noah received, he issued out his own statement on Sunday stating that he “sincerely apologize if I have offended anyone with the picture going around.” And continued to add . . .

“Anyone who knows me or ***** [name redacted] knows that that’s not how we truly feel. It was a completely [sic] joke and it went too far. After reading the texts and Snapchat’s [sic] I truly see how I have offended people and I’m sorry.”

Needless to say, Noah’s apology drummed up little support from some of his fellow students. With one of them posting on Facebook  “Man save that apology … you meant what you posted!” Since this incident, Huffington Post reports that both the school and Crowley’s parents agreed that young Noah would not be attending any more school functions. And his parents put out the following statement via HP . . .

“While our son has apologized himself, on behalf of our family, we wish to also express our most sincere apologies for the terrible words used in his ‘promposal.’

“We love our son dearly and know that he is a far better person than reflected in this reckless behavior. That said, as loving parents, we also feel compelled to share our own deep regret and serious concern about his actions.

“After numerous familial conversations and lengthy discussions with Riverview High School administrators, we have jointly agreed that our son will not be attending any further school activities or functions, including the Prom or graduation ceremony.

“As a family, we truly recognize this incident is a very difficult but important life lesson and pledge to do all we can to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. Certainly, we hope that all of the people and communities who were hurt and offended will forgive our son and family.”

There were so many roads that this kid could have traveled, but he decided to take this route. And what for? To “highlight” his ignorance. To display what he “actually thinks” about people of color. To joke about their hardship, the struggle, their pain, their separation from family, their humiliation, their violation of being human beings; which by the way “was” and is “still” real in this here America. And this kid only punishment is “no more school functions for you!” Huh, maybe this “embracement” is enough for him and his family. But I gotta tell yah’, I can’t help but see this kid in a “Make America Great” cap. That vision is so clear.  I’m just saying.

 

Hey, fam!

When I was in school I had to do an internship with the probation department. I learned about intake assessment and what it was like to have clients. My mentor had clients that ranged from sex offenders to drug offenders. As with all clients you have to explain the do’s and don’ts of their supervision. For the drug clients, they were told that they are subjected to random drug testing.

Why am I telling you this? Well, I want to tell you about one of the most specialist people to do a drug test. Most of the time, the client goes into the restroom, goes in a cup, and gives it to their probation officer and it’s tested. (this was a while ago, I’m sure it’s different now) Anywho, Kiana Wallace must have had a heads up for her drug test because she asked someone for their urine.

Unfortunately, she didn’t ask the person if they had used drugs. Because when all was said and done she tested positive for drugs. She was sentenced to 18 months. I would love to be a fly on the wall when she explains why she’s in prison. Imagine “What are you in for? I killed my boyfriend because he beat me. What about you? Umm, I umm failed my drug test because I used someone else’s urine and they were using too. Seriously, I bet you’ll ask next time”

Fam, I tell you, you just can’t make this up
