Random Thoughts

thoughtsThe Catholic Church needs Pope Francis. Jorge Mario Bergoglio knows exactly what he is doing by choosing the name Francis. Pope Francis has already demonstrated by action what type of Pope he wants to be. All Catholics need to learn about St. Francis of Assisi and St. Francis Xavier.  The blueprint of what Pope Francis wants to do and take the Church is in the example of the lives of these two men.

Am I the ONLY one going thru Scandal withdrawal? Next Thursday is going to be like Christmas for all of us dedicated gladiators!

Message to all Republicans: The Southern Strategy has failed! The GOP will become the 21st century Whig party if it does not take its head out of its ass and become more inclusive, holistic, and socially conscious.

Pat Boone needs some Mylanta and a sedative. He is an example of what I stated above. But in his defense, he still believes that the South will rise again. He’s not the only one though.

Do you realize the budget Paul Ryan has proposed slashes spending to 1948 levels? Think about that for a moment and how that will personally affect you.

Violence in our communities must end! We must give ourselves and our youth hope, jobs, and a quality education!

I loved Sen.  Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) exchange with Sen. Ted Cruz during the debate over assault weapons during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday.  It reminded me of when an elder would tell a child to pick out their own switch and begin to spank them saying, “Respect your elders!”

Sen.  Rob Portman’s (R-OH) change of position on gay marriage (his son came out to him) is similar to St. Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. What an analogy! Sorry, my mind sometimes works that way.

Never say you will do something and don’t. In the end, your word is the only thing you truly have.

Have you ever known someone who brightens your day every time you see or hear from them? Isn’t it great?

The NYPD needs to rethink their directive to run criminal checks on the victims of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is notorious for being not reported or under reported.  In 2000, 1,247 women and 440 men were killed by an intimate partner according to Bureau of Justice Statistics.

While the NYPD is on my mind, there has to be a thorough investigation done regarding the Kimani Gray shooting. There has to be a realization made that racism still exists therefore racist officers still exist. I understand that the job is an extremely difficult one and I want every officer to return safely from their tours each and every day but, there has to be something done to prevent the Kimani Gray’s, Sean Bell’s  and Amadou Diallo’s from happening.

Moving on to the KCPD, when a person have reports that they have been robbed and shot in a predominantly African-American economically depressed area of the city, detectives should never conclude that the person shot himself just to close a case.  When a crime has been committed it is your sworn duty to investigate it fully and to not assume out of expediency and the lack of finding a shell casing.

Carnival Cruise Lines has some major problems. According to NPR, three ships in their fleet have experienced notable malfunctions. All of this is after the Carnival Triumph fiasco. I believe Carnival may want to consider “dry-docking” their fleet until their maintenance quality issues are addressed.  Either that or lose what little public credibility they have left. The brand has suffered significant damage. The $37 million Carnival earned in the first-quarter can easily turn into a $75 million loss for the year.

Let the people you care about know that you care about them. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.

Veronica Mars’ film gets green lighted due to a social media fundraising campaign. Fans of the show Girlfriends can make it happen too. Go to @MaraBrockAkil and let her know!

My mouth is watering for Five Guys!!! My stomach is growling for it too.

Dahntay Jones of the Atlanta Hawks may need a bodyguard the next time the Hawks plays the Los Angeles Lakers. He’s going to get bit by the Black Mamba! Everyone knows Black Mamba bites are lethal 100% of the time.

Peeps are an unhealthy addiction that fortunately only gets satisfied once a year.

A plan without action is just wasted time.

Have you ever watched the TLC television show, “Strange Addiction?” It’s not just strange, it’s cray cray.

Gotta go….Till the next time….
