The Book of Mirrors (Chapter 18)

Hello all,

I am sorry that yesterday's post offended some, didnt mean to.  But the truth and God's words don't budge for nobody.

I have been a lot of places in my life,  I got one of those Forrest Gump, the R, X-rated, street version for about 4 sequels type lives because I have been in so many different places in my life in time......#donnyhathaway, never knew still miss him terribly everytime I hear his voice......

I digress, but the truth is what is needed.

Pastor Jenkins didn't mean to hurt my feelings that past Sunday, but he said what was needed to be said in order for me to show up to bible study.

It is not irony but God's will that the last bible study for the year was Monday night, because if you go a couple of chapters over in I Corinthians ............ obviously I have violated all those rules.  Lust........hey, I can admit it, was a big part of the reason I married my ex-husband,  call it what you want, it was important for me to be satisfied in that way, didn't wanna cheat.......

I am divorced, I have done a lot of the no no's in that chapter.  I think Ellen is cute...... I am just talking but you get my point.

It is those type of chapters that made me put the word down for a very long time, very long time...... Almost 20 years.

It is those type of chapters that made me leave church alone.

But God has a path for all of us because in that time away from the church, I learned that God didn't stop blessing me, but he didn't make me perfect either......  I get a stack of money, I hear enough Wacka Flocka song, you never know I might be the one on the stage with the strippers throwing me money... Hey it is what it is.

But my point is life don't stop, and for Iowa who supposedly is conservative but had Barack Obama winning that state on the dems side........I don't care how close it is to Chicago, for a state that has Newt not for personal reasons, but for policy reasons, an advocate of mandates, the architect of welfare as we know it, he and pelosi closed down the projects putting an emphasis on Sec 8(a) that has impacted the housing market to this day.  And admitted Reaganite, and yes Reagan did give amnesty Newt, but he regretted it what is your excuse.

leading the polls Iowa, don't respect y'all no more.

You all ain't a state of your word.

Romney who wrote Obamacare for the states is second, Ron Paul whose foreign policy is so naive it makes Obama look like he got some "testicles"...................

And the one from y'all state, raised with y'all values, has voted and stayed the course.........

in fourth places, because she ain't electable.

Jesus was a baby whose Mama would have been on the Maury show many a day, he didn't finish school, he making bootleg wine, he hanging with the Mary's not the Virgins, the $2 can you shake it like that Mary's

yet he ended up being the light of the world.........

You all in Iowa used to be respecting for acknowledging that great truth, now the rest of the nation sees you with disappointment for forgetting it.  Shall we start?


In the movie, and for review, we are discussing American Gangster directed by Ridley Scott co-starred by two oscar winning actors if I believe, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.

Two moments of the movie are when Russell Crowe's character, Richie Roberts hears a truth from his wife, I gotta get her name, geez!, hits him with a truth, so hard, so deep, so powerful, he instantly reacts to it, without a moment hestitation.......

The second moment is when Richie Roberts realizes a deeper and more subtle truth in the life of Frank Lucas played by Denzel Washington and goes from a judge of people to an advocate...

We have established for the left Frank Lucas is President Barack Obama (took me a long time to call him President, my birthday is in a couple of weeks, I would like to think I have grown just a tad...... *big smile*), 

on the right, Frank Lucas is Michele Marie Bachmann.

These two are Franks because the people they represent ain't ones the establishment, the geo-political parties that ensure we know more about Khloe (Welcome to Dallas, Love........ ) than we do about our Bill of Rights.

For Obama, he represents Muslim Culture dominated Muslims who want to fundamentally change the Judeo-Christian tenets of this country, 1st and 2nd at the most generation illegals primarily and those who possess an Anti-American sentiment, and those who support socialism because words like fairness, justice and sharing and caring sound a lot better than hard work, individual responsibility and reality.........

For Michele, she represents women, first.  It is not missed that blacks got their rights, in black men, than women did.  This country took a man from 3/5's of a man to a full one legally before they ever gave any woman.  LET ME REPEAT ANY WOMAN, white, black or whatever any rights........ She represents folks who didn't go to Harvard, don't look down at others, who walk the Christian path at a level, where there are no soundbites produced that can get heavy rotation, she walks with those who have the courage to say no............

we can't afford it..........

we not going to do it.......

i won't stand for that.....

So each of these two people represent Frank Lucas in a different way.

The two people who play Richie Roberts, the character in the end who looks out for Frank but started out not necessarily being an enemy an all ways but wasn't a fan is.

for the left, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, she's the lady from around the way via the bay........ San Fran that is.....

and me.  is that enough background?  Are we caught up to speed? let's go.

I want to discuss someone who is uncredited.......in the movie

His name is Clarence Williams III, if you know of his work, Clarence is just that gangsta schwagg...... I mean this man will probably never win an Oscar, but if you see his body of work, OMG! one of my favorite all time actors.  This man has the ability of classy ignant gansterism.

What I mean is that no matter what role he plays, I love him in Half-Baked, BlueHill Avenue, Hoodlum, Sprung!, is that he has this ability to never raise his voice too much, never too violent, but something in his voice in his mannerisms say............don't test me.

If this man were to run up on Bin Laden, he's the type of dude, to look Bin Laden in the eye and say son......for real, I am dead serious ;) 

Son, put that gun down because if I have to take it from you, you'll be getting a lap dance from virgin #20 in #20 minutes............

with a voice and a tone that would have Al-Queda like Osama what's up?

And Osama saying...............man............that dude is crazy.

Clarence Williams III plays Bumpy Johnson, the gangster who started Frank Lucas down his path.  In the beginning scene of the movie, Bumpy, a criminal mind you..........

A leech, scum of the earth as some of us with legal jobs like to look at our non legal brothers and sisters........

Is commenting to Frank on the problem of exporting our businesses trying to help other countries have business.  Instead of Magnavox TV's and RCA's even his time sony and toshiba were starting to emerge in the market.

There's a point here people..............the ones that look out for this country ain't the working people all the time, it is the hustlers..........it is the gangsters for they live off of  you, and because of that they are obligated..........OBLIGATED to ensure your safety, health and ability to pursue your happiness.....

Bumpy is troubled, he knows........those Tv's being made in Korea and Japan, means his folks is losing their jobs...... He is doing what he can.  He gives back to the folks on the holidays.  He ain't Michelle Obama, no time for gingerbread houses that his people can't benefit from, he takes his money and gives back to the people because regardless of how he got it, he ain't obligated to give it back.

Let me repeat that for those confused OWS folks and democrats, regardless of how he got it, he ain't obligated to give it back.

Ain't it funny how those who say they walk uprightly, don't end up on the same path of those who actually do walk uprightly?

Bumpy and Frank are talking and Bumpy can't take it no more literally, his heart gives out.  God tells him it is time for you to come home.  You are a gangster, you don't need to be in no hospital or weak in these streets, its done son, come home.

The Bumpy Johnson of politics is........................

Addison Mitchell "Mitch" McConnell, I know it drives him up the wall when I call him by his full name, but it is out of respect.

Money Mitch.  I can't put the full nickname on here ;)

Why?

Remember I talked about the deacon from my church and the story of how two young mules can't plow no field.

Folk like me, Cantor, Ryan, we  young mules............

But for me especially folk like Money Mitch, keep me on a steady path.  We want our leaders to be young and that's cool, you don't want nobody croaking out, I don't even consider who the VP outside of Paul no offense, his age worries me, not that his mind ain't sharp, its his body, he looks tired and I wonder what will taking on the role of President do to him. I do, not dogging him, just being honest.......

I don't always agree with Money Mitch, we have argued publicly, I'll tweet him, email him send message through Boehner, Cornryn, it don't matter.

But what's cool about Money Mitch is what's cool about Bumpy Johnson is what's cool about Clarence Williams III, they very rarely change their volume, but damn when they change tone.  When that Kentucky boom comes out in Money Mitch's voice like all bull aside I told that................... that if so and so don't .................., we going to take his....................... out back and .......................

and although the words never come out, it is all in inflection and there is something in his voice to let you know, to not let the glasses fool you, but the second reason I chose him for this role is that he sees the bigger picture.

Money Mitch lets folks like me fuss, like Bumpy I am sure let folk  like Frank fuss or the Richies of the world..........How so and so needs to be handled, how we should have already had Obama in a cell in cuba, running up in the white house?

But he never belittles, he just simply states what the path and purpose is, and simply yanks the young mules like myself back on path, not dramatically or anything.  I rely on that, I do. 

It is that same type of old mule spirit that Michele Bachmann has........... She ain't going to get into the p****** contest that was displayed on Saturday in the debate, how can she? She's a woman, we designed to get in the hole everytime ;) Don't hate.......blame god, we #beyonce baby, we the upgrade.....

It makes you wonder what kind of conversations Bumpy and Frank had over the years don't it?  You would think according to these rappers, it would be about who was the club, who owe money, and I am sure those conversations occurred, but not about the state of American manufacturing to where even Rick Santorum will never say publicly but privately.....like yeah, I probably could have conversed with him on that subject.......

Don't it make you glad sometimes, that life ain't like the movies in the sense that the job of casting director, producer and director is already taken?

Isn't it a glorious feeling when we stop worrying and condemning others for their roles in life and simply focus on our lines?

Everybody in this movie ain't credited, but damn without Bumpy Johnson, Clarenece Williams III would there even be an American Gangster?

The senate came 47-53 within getting  the GOP balanced budget amendment through which Obama would have vetoed.  People that was just six Rossi's, six Angle's away from this country being forced to do something that Harry Reid ain't done in over three years, write and adhere to budget where the debit column equals the credit column.

The first scene of the movie started with a Man who started it all, who ain't credited a bit............

I can't make this up.

We can't just focus on the presidential race, our brother, our Bumpy is talking to us........his heart is weary, his heart is hurting, we need that Senate as well, we need somewhere for the over 30 job related bills that have passed the house to go........

You see Newt, Money Mitch is just as much of my nation as the people I mentioned yesterday.  We can't explain it at the family reunion, but to tell me that we are a "made up" people is fighting words.

Because when I look on my battlefield, I see Addison right next to me with laws and legislation as I see Pastor Jenkins, And Sister Smith, and Brother Reed next to me with God's word that I so sorely need.........

Baby, that ain't made up.

That's God..........

America, starting with Iowa, you all got to get back to the basics......... Electability, who can talk bad to Obama in a debate making every sap that's ever had his ass whopped for Obama out of sympathy shouldn't be first on the line.

You all say you conservative........... Last time I checked, it started with God, I suggest you all start looking at the Frank on this side.  Knowing facts, creating jobs, writing past bills, being willing to put stop payments on checks...........

don't mean nothing if you can't see the bigger picture.........

And if the people from the beggar on the corner to the Wall Street CEO who comes home and hurts just like all of us, ain't all in your picture love, every single American citizen first and foremost.........

Baby, this ain't the job for you.

If you don't understand that your actions gotta match your words and you can't slip and slide and be on the right side of everything...........

Baby, this ain't the job for you.

If you can't grasp the concept that we way beyond just ending the $ in regards to fiscal policy on the line, that Akbar needs that money because he's risking his life snitching for us..........

Baby, this ain't the job for you.

Let's learn from Bumpy, Let's learn from Mitch.

Old mules have to know where to go in order to use the young mules' strength.

that's all, we get into black churches, black reverands, black politics, and Obama and along with the characters of Nicky Barnes, the lt over Richie Roberts, and Robert's partner.

I love you, Money Mitch! you are my brother..........you are my mule, brother, and it's been an honor to follow your lead........ Finally, I am starting to get it ;) you can wipe your glasses and breathe a little easier ;) ( he gets it, take care America!)

until tomorrow.
