Asked not what your country can do for you, but can you help shape the national agendas ?

One thing you can say about these United States is that there is never a dull moment when it comes to politics and sports , particularly when it’s interlaced with race . It began from around December 18th 1865 ,or if you more accurately prefer July 1, 1928 when slavery hopefully was abolished , and worked it‘s way all across to Jackie Robinson color barrier escapades , and Jesse Owens embarrassment of the Hitler Nazi machinery, and his latter day Jim Crow domestic sympathizers .
Remember OJ Simpson aka The Juice and former advertising icon, TV media darling, and movie star? Well, we know what happened to him after he had the means to successfully defend himself and win two murder raps . He became a national pariah that was prevented from securing any gainful employment in the country even to pay his Civil Law suit. To some vindication finally came when this obvious imbecile, decided to commit one of the most outrageous acts in the history of an intelligent human being over the past century-namely in desperation ,to go into a building with guns blazing to rob someone of your own items in of all place Vegas where video cameras are more common than gamblers in a casino like the Taj Mahal. Imagine with me , the huge impact of a man that like Oprah has put more white folks in business . He was able to single-handedly focus the attention of a national malady called domestic abuse, and now historical dysfunctions amongst the growing black middle class millionaires. Finally all women can breath a sigh of relief some think, because justice delayed is justice anyway depending on who the preps are.
Not to be outdone was Michael Vic . His crime was to engage in one of America’s favorite underhand pastime - dog fighting. How dare you Michael -enquired America -be so cruel to man’s best friend some outraged citizens seem to think? For that you’ll do 23 months in prison, and just might never get a second chance to play ball again, much less obtain a percentage of the last 120 million dollar contract you once earned. In the land of democracy , that is tantamount to a Crime Against Humanity, yes? Only in America folks where more people are incarcerated- sometimes innocently , and even for non violent , victimless crimes -than any other industrial society in the world, and no one looses a bit of sleep.
Then there is Home run king Barry Bonds. He was able to do what famous known or perhaps unknown drug cheaters such as Lance Armstrong and Mark McGwire
were able to accomplished and yet escape the national wrath. Poor Barry, unloved by the media , and now this. Well ,America is now focused- at least that’s what we’ll like to think.

Now , we have the Steelers football super star Linebacker James Harrison refusing to go to the Whitehouse and kiss the proverbial ring of the first black President of these United States. How dare you commit such an outrageous crime James ? At least that’s what most of America is thinking.
The value of black folks to America is tremendous, be it popular culture, politics , economics ,and of course politics. The irony many are not aware of it , and that’s a shame.

Prudent , Accountable , Moral Leadership , or Just Another day in the Global Social Ghetto?

The major question is , does any one care , and if not why/? What do you have here as data , one might enquire? There is a possible global epidemic that is encroaching us and desperate Mexico is being made a scapegoat for a disease that the jury is still out as to it’s origin. How tragic that borderline racist policy wonks and disingenuous leaders , with the help of corporate media , and intellectually lazy mass citizenship would choose fear and expediency to push through on narrow and skewed domestic social agendas.
In America demands are made to finally build the wall to stop every Mexican from entering the country in fear that some might begin to wax nostalgic and wish to reclaim lands that were rightfully theirs , but was stolen years ago. Who looses and who gains from a global epidemic of such mammoth proportion the astute may enquire?
In Egypt ,the almost 3 decade dictatorship led by Hosni Mubarak demanded that every pig is slaughtered in the country as a precautionary measure ,much to the delight of the majority Muslim nation , but the chagrin of minority Christian farmers and other overwhelmingly discriminated citizens .

In Russia the government took it as an opportunity to ban all meats from USA . Care to guess what might be at the top of the discussion agenda by the new visiting America President and the insecure Russians this week?,27574,25397431-23109,00.html
The Pakistan and Afghan leaders were recently in America to pay their respects to the country that since 1979 has helped put them at the forefront of political discussions, as it fought it ideological Proxy war with the so called arch enemy USSR , and more recently it’s very infamous war on terror against a six feet giant with a beard , a dialysis machine in the Afgan mountains , a scarf and female dress for camouflage ,and billions of Saudi dollars in European and American banks.
Give Me another 400 million in military or economic aid so that we can finally fight our terrorist border cousins , and help foster democracy claimed President Mr. Asif Ali Zardari. You just might be lucky as we do not want Taliban terrorist to capture your nuclear weapons from your 700,000 strong military elites ,profess American leaders and military and business power elites. Go figure. Benazir Bhutto must be turning over in her grave as she reflect with saint Peter as to what her beloved nuclear powered country has degenerated to. Stand by Pakistan , the young elite son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is soon about to cash in on his mothers last will/ dying statement and assume power upon graduation from his mom’s Alma Martha Oxford.
Trusting this shoe salesman guy is tantamount to President Obama naming Wall Street criminal miscreant Bernard Madoff, Mr. Junk bonds king Michael Milken, or phony socialite Martha Stewart ,on your short list as Secretary of the Treasury some would think, but what do they know? Will someone ever finally show some love to desperate non Arab Sudanese , Sri Lankans, as well as Congo’s suffering and powerless masses? One would think that the terrible , tragic lessons of global neglect via buck passing on the genocidal Rwandan , and Balkan states of the former Yugoslavian Republics ,would be fully understood by now .

Well, I guess one obviously is entitled to an occasional mistaken assumptions re such pertinent international affairs.
Breaking and pressing news good folks , a sex ban for Kenyan men will be soon forthcoming. What impact can this have in a country where a man is entitled to have a many as ten wives in his harem if desired in similar fashion to the late father of the newly anointed ‘President of the free world’Mr. Obama? Stand by however ,for real cogent updates on the global socio- economic /com political realities, by yours truly ,‘deglobal political guru,’ and sole ‘Voice of Empathy,’ for the neglected and desperate masses.
