Back to the point, I will tell you who would like to be President of the United States, and would run (besides 'the Eye of Newt' , Mitt Romney, Sarah ...). Answer? Every other Republican in Washington DC; in college or abroad (including John Boehner of Ohio, would like to and might run for the office, and perhaps secure a win in 2012).
But the man that I referred to in part 2, the other apparent black swan, is a black Republican syndicated columnist and radio talk show host: His name is Herman Cain. Remember Cain and Abel, a man who was not his his brother's keeper, Citizen Cain, fits that kind of profile. He is not his brother's keeper either, based on what I have heard from him so far!
What is so peculiar about this 'black' man, is that he is an apparent understudy of former veep, and my favorite person in the whole wide world (tee-hee), Dick Cheney. Citizen Cain, is a man who actually looks like, behaves like, thinks like, walks like, talks like and has all of the affectations and witty charm of former (thank God) Vice President, Dick Cheney. He differs only in hue, but more on that in a moment.
If Senator Clinton were to have become President in 2008, she would have had a big enough mess to clean up (and women do a good job of cleaning up messes left behind by men in 'The House' and everywhere else for that matter), it would seem. But taking on the task of cleaning up after a Reagan, two Bushes, and a Reagan Bush clone, Ambassador Clinton, likely realizes just as I do, that it would be a monumental task. Besides, without being appreciated for it, she has already given so much to this nation. She will always be in the Solomon Hall of Fame, whatever she does from hereon. If President O'Bushama were to prevail in 2012, he should have her in as one of his principle advisers.
The Previously Undisclosed Republican Secret Weapon
Okay folks, Republicans have come up with a yet to be disclosed new secret weapon: It is a 'cloning device'. To make my point, observe President O'Bushama and Syndicated Columnist'Citizen Cain' (both black). As I said before, the latter is a Dick-Cheney look alike, talk like and act like clone of the former veep, if I ever saw one. And President O'Bushama is a clone of Reagan and Bush Jr. in black-face, just as I commented on before.
This man, Citizen Cain, is just like Obama, a composite-clone of a former politician with the only difference that I can think of is that his hue is black. Someone had better check around, and determine whether or not grandpa Cheney, was sneaking over to the slave quarters back in the day. And aside from all of the aforementioned, Citizen Cain is also in cancer remission, just like Dick Cheney is, and his surname even begins with the letter 'C', the same as Dick Cheney's.
And get this, Citizen Cain like Cheney, Bush ..., loves the Heritage Foundation folks. It would appear that the Republicans have had this yet to be disclosed secret weapon, that has yet to be disclosed to the public. It is unique in that it has the ability to turn black swans and politicians, into white swans or politicians and vice-versa. Simply consider what happened to President O'Bushama: he appeared to be one thing on the outside, but was actually someone else on the inside.
Apparently, smart Republicans, and I will give them credit for being smarter, strategically, than Democrats are, decided some time ago, that they will be ready to give America whatever it wants, man, woman, black, white, bald-headed, chatty, cheerleader ... as long as they can control it, him or her. Strategically, Republicans don't care any more about what their candidate looks like, their ethnicity or their gender:, they simply want to control the reigns of power in this nation (and the world) at all costs. And for 2012, Citizen Cain, be might the 'The Man', even though they will have other clones ready, just in case.
And if he doesn't fit, then the Republicans will acquit! Shameless, shameless, shameless Solomon, I know! Now to those of you who believe that I'm nutty, just drive up to Vegas or Tahoe, and watch a celebrity look-alike revue. And you will see just how easy it is to create clone-like look a likes like Elvis, Michael, Reagan, Bush and now this ...
Back to the Republicans, the ones who have found a way to inject the ideas, personality, scowl ... of one human being into another, just as they used their secret weapon in order to imprint the mind, mimicry, kinesics and the policies of 2 former Republicans presidents into 'President O'Bushama' and Citizen Cain. And now similar to a time when singer, song-writer and former entertainer Prince, changed his moniker, the first time to, "the Artist formerly known as", President O'Bushama, has become in many people's mind, national and abroad, "the President formerly known as". A voice has been overheard in the Rose Garden, when the President is taking his evening stroll: It has been saying, "Luke, Luke, come over to the dark, Republican, side of the force"!
I don't know who Citizen Cain was before, but he is currently Dick Cheney in black face. Folks, don't put anything past the Republican minority: Two things are true about them, they are the minority (there are more Democrats) and they are smart. And along with their smarts, they have a number of effective think tanks, and will do anything to win or recover from a momentary setback. In the recent movie spoof, 'Undercover Brother', black General Billy D. Williams' character, who represented General Colin Powell in the film, had been taken over by 'The Man', just as President O'Bushama and apparently Citizen Cain have apparently taken over by 'The Man'. I wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't been, drinking a lot of TEA lately!
First Lady Obama, should check to see who is sleeping beside her at night, the real Obama or perhaps a planted Republican clone. Perhaps the real Obama is hidden away somewhere else, and won't be released until the Republicans have seized full control of the Presidency, Supreme Court, both Houses and the ROW. Citizen Cain's wife might want to consider doing the same thing. At the very least, she ought to check to see whether it is her husband or not.
Citizen Cain is Dick Cheney's previously concealed 'brother from another mother'.Either way, these two men in black face are willing to attack black, Middle-Eastern and Asian nations it would appear. And this is a win win for the Republicans, because when either of these two order hits on other nations that include people of color, no one can cry racism. And who knows, perhaps they will help to win over nations who that have in the past exclaimed, 'whitey go home'. All I can say to the Republicans is, brilliant ...! I like smart people, and I secretly admire you, however, your policies -give me a break. When I think in terms of Republican policy, I come away thinking about 'man's inhumanity to man'! Shame on you, even the Christian one's who have bought into a selfish ideology!
I haven't heard whether or not, President O'Bushama has truly tasted it or not (the Colonel's chicken) but it would appear that he has, at least, been selling the Colonel's Chicken all along. The rest of the world would like to know who or what is inside of the President, and, what happened to the man that ran for office just over 2 years ago. Inquiring minds want to know what happened to that man? Or, was that man simply all talk?
Even if he were to run again in 2012, and would somehow secure victory - it would appear that the Republicans will have sealed another victory. And the rest of America, particularly democrats and some independents (along with the rest of the world), will have to wait for a new would-be-savior. As it turns out, and as I suspected it long before now, he is not now or ever was the savior that a majority of Americans and citizens of other nations expected him to be, especially the ones who believed that he was sent by God.
Citizen Cain, who is wasting no time getting attention, said on a television news show last night and I quote, “Mr. Obama is a politician, not a leader like the late Ronald Reagan ...”. He's right about one thing, he's not a leader, but neither were Ronald Reagan nor George Bush Jr. in my opinion - they simply gave their followers what they wanted. And to think that the two of them have been reincarnated, or superimposed into the bodies and minds of Mr. O'Bushama, and now apparently Citizen Cain (another black man), gives me a stomach ache!
The Republicans have all of the bases covered or loaded now, in the 7-th inning. They are waiting for the next general election in 2012, following another 1 1/2 year stretch. They are positioned to give America whatever it believes that it wants, black meat, white meat, female, gay, straight, lesbian ... and it won't matter to them, as long as they get what they want out of the deal. Republicans apparently care about 2 things, money and power. I noticed, during my nearly 8-year stay in the District, that they never did one thing to solve the problems that were was right under their noses. In fact they ignored what was going on right down the street from Capitol Hill and not that far away from the White House.
Instead, they leave the Capitol and head straight to Georgetown or take the Whitehurst freeway out of town, over the Potomac River, when their work day ends, straight into lush and plush Northern Virginia, in particular the Great Falls area. There they are able to avoid the impoverished and disenfranchised people just 2-blocks away from the Capitol and the Federal Triangle. A one-mile drive down South Capitol and across the Anacostia River, would force them to see what has long been out of sight, sound and their minds - the poor and disenfranchised.
Now that the new multi-million dollar baseball stadium has displaced much of the working poor and urban blight in the area, (urban removal), you will notice more of them heading down South Capitol, and borrowing a line from John McLaughlin, donning their 'tweedy suits', on the way to the multi-million dollar baseball stadium. It is a stadium that the locals cannot afford, and someone said: There are more minorities playing ball than there are minority fans in the seats.
The Representatives, who avoid the reality of what is in front of them, remain on the stadium side of the Anacostia river, and typically head back in the other direction in order to avoid encounters with many in America's permanent underclass; they are more comfortable with the Corporate Lobbyists, who typically have offices on K-Street. The poor typically reside in Ward 7 and 8, which is a distant mile away from the individuals that we vote into office, to represent us.
I will never forget what former United States Representative,Tom Davis said. I volunteered with an organization called DC Vote, while I was in Washington DC, for approximately 8 years. I was on the speaker's bureau for this organization. Our objective was to get an office Representative in Congress for the 600,000 mostly democratic majority in the district. Yes, the District had Delegate Eleanor Holmes-Norton, however, she was a delegate, at the time, who could vote only in Committee.
Tom's staff was always friendly, even when I visited his office and workshops. Tom Davis's assistant shared an interesting and embarrassing experience that Representative Tom Davis, experienced in Beijing. Tom was in Bejing, and in typical American form attempted to chastise the Chinese for human rights violation. However, this time, the Chinese officials were ready, and immediately contoured his argument.
Representative Davis, was caught off guard when his Chinese counterparts, asked, and when will the United States provide voter's rights for the 600,000 residents of it's nation's capital. Ouch! Afterward, Representative Tom Davis returned to America and worked hard with Delegate Holmes- Norton ..., recognizing, that America was being laughed at overseas given its hypocritical stances on human rights abroad, when it was violating the rights of the citizens of its own nation's capital, right under the nose of the President, Congress and the Supreme Court.
Instructive? Well, after some very hard work - that I can proudly say that I was a part of, the citizens of DC, finally have a representative, but having said that, for years the citizens of the District were taxed, without Representation. And the fact that citizens of the DOC fought for America, did not seem to make any difference to our Representatives in DC, even the one's who served in the United States military. And, the officials that I met with from another group, Statehood for Washington D.C., are still working hard to get the District Statehood for DC Citizens.
Side-bar, and back to the black and white swan(s), who behave just like any other politicians do, as far as I am concerned! Is the president truly under the control of the Republicans, in spite of all appearances to the contrary, or is there simply 'something in the DC water', that causes this transformative effect once certain politicians reach Washington DC? Consider this, the 720 million dollars plus of missile displacement that has already been shot or dropped into Libya already; and at least 1 fighter jet has already been brought or shot down - depending on who you believe. What's next? And, that 720 million, could have been used to create a lot of jobs just across the Frederick Douglass Bridge.
Mr. O'Bushama's strength, at the time, was that people liked him, which in turn caused his supporters to overlook his flaws. Ah, he's a nice looking man (not as cute as me, but okay). And as a result, most Americans, agreed to (marry) vote for Mr. Obama, after the first date-night. Americans skirts were up, before they got home from the dance. A personality profile of the President would likely indicate that 'he likes being liked,' but who doesn't?
Well, there is Dick Cheney. I believe that man wears the 'not being liked badge of honor to bed with him at night' with honor. He was on location, during the New Orleans disaster 6 years ago. A man shouted in earshot, "f-you Dick Cheney". Mr. Cheney, didn't pull out his hunting rifle out and shoot the man (tee hee), he simply looked away, completely unperturbed by the entire incident. But back to a President who wooed the nation and the world all of a sudden, and after 'a few night's out', the President lost his appeal. Fewer and fewer people on the Left, care for their previous paramour, President O'Bushama, who has gone over to the dark side. At the same time, he seems to be gaining a gaggle of new suitors on the Right, even though in public, they pretend not to be happy with at all.
His problem, in my mind is that he is a capitulator, and a person without a vision - one who is unwilling to fight for a principle, regardless of the pressure that he might receive from obstructionists on the Right or elsewhere. And that is not being Dick Cheney like. President O'Bushama will have to work on that major flaw and divest himself of a need to be liked or admired, and instead stand up for a principle. He clearly lacks experience, resolve and fortitude - and can never to be confused with a Bill, Hillary Clinton, Jack or Jimmy Carter .... The latter, including President Jimmy Carter, stood up to the right-winged conspiracy groups in this nation.
It cost them, but they stood up, and Senator Clinton almost won the Democratic Nomination - not her fault that she lost, Democrats simply aren't that obtuse. President O'Bushama, missed a golden opportunity when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, 2 years ago, in Oslo Norway. Clearly, members of the Nobel Peace Prize selection committee were duped, just as most of the individuals who voted for him in the USA were duped in the 2008 General Election, because they were tired of the Republicans, the American right and politics as usual.
And what have those weary Americans to show for their trouble? Answer, more of the same. I even suspect that the men and women of 'MoveON', will be moving on in search of another candidate to unseat President O'Bushama, as well as the Republican leadership in the House. And could you blame them if they did - they were sold out by the President? President O'Bushama, embarrassed this well organized and finally tuned group of erudite individuals, who were in part responsible for his election success.
He embarrassed them, in front of the T-Partiers this way: He abandoned them, as well as what they stood and fought for, only to see everything that they worked for being tossed under foot by all people, the person that they worked to elect. It was as if they trained, worked hard and gave it all that they had, only to have the prize taken away by their leader. If only President O'Bushama had taken on the same attitude about war, with respect to his Republican opponents, as he visibily done with other nations of the world, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya, America, I believe would be much further along in its economic recovery, and many America citizens would be back to work, including members of America's permanent underclass. Instead, the rich got richer, along with extended tax breaks, banks and corporations were restored, and the American people are still in no where's land.
The next elected People's President, will have to 'DECLARE WAR on the dominant wing of the Republican Party. And, they will have to come to Washington with a strategic and tactical war-plan to neutralize the Republican Obstructionist Party - witness, what Republican obstructionist's are doing in Sacramento (more on that later).
Truthfully, I like being liked too I believe, and there are still a few people around that like me, the others would like me too if I would give in to their nonsense, including some of the homeless con-artists that I currently work with now, in hopes of helping them to get back on their economic feet - we have a fete compli. And having said that, it doesn't bother me when people don't like me without having a good reason for not liking me. I can't help it if they are stupid, or perhaps I have a bit of Dick Cheney in me as well. I shouldn't have said that, should I? My dark side is showing.
Frankly, I would prefer to be in Lake Tahoe, lying on a the beach alone, than dealing with nonsensical people, and there are a lot of those around in my opinion! I can recall when one of my parishioners, asked me years ago, "where do you disappear to so quickly after church, pastor"? She also added, we would like to spend time with you after church. She was aghast when I answered, "I go home and watch the football game". Oops!
No and I am telling the truth, there are people who don't like me, even in religious circles. And sadly, some of them have probably never considered that to be truthful, I don't like some of them either. Is a minister permitted to say that? Sadly, as a minister, I can't even tell some of them, " I don't like you either".
Truthfully, besides dyed-in-the wool, I am not my brother's keeper or helper, Citizen-Cain, Cheney, Bush ...Republicans who embrace Republican-fascist ideals and Reaganesque 'voodo economics', truthfully, I don't like them either. I don't like Dick Cheney, and as far as I am concerned, what a waste of DNA. If Dick came to me in the Jordan, and asked to be baptized, I would have to use the affusion method of baptism, or refer him on to John the Baptist, of, " oh ye generation of vipers (Dick Cheney), who warned you to flee..."! How can a man call himself the vice president of a nation, when the truth is, he only represented people in the nation (a minority) who believed like he did - he never cared about all of the American populce. Hello Kanye!
Okay, I have confessed that I am not the perfect man. And now, Mr. Obama should also do the same, and get over his apparent need to be liked, which is apparent, given his customary practice of waffling back and forth so that he can please everybody. He will never be a good leader if he doesn't learn that lesson, and perhaps he could be one and pull this thing out in the bottom of the ninth. Perhaps, someone will inject him with some steroids (shameless, I know!) A President can only serve for 2-terms. He would have a total of 5.5 years to turn things around, if he won and would get a backbone.
My God, can't he serve without the need for being loved for 5.5 years, in order to work for a principle? Besides, if his principles are correct, and America makes a dramatic turnaround, the people who loved him will come back, those that didn't (non-Republicans), will give him credit for doing the proper thing after all. And the group that simply wants to have things there way, right or way, would never embrace him anyway - so what does he have to lose by simply ignoring them. This group only has their only interests in mind anyway.
America, used to be thought of as a Commonwealth, and someone needs to help get America back to being a Commonwealth., a nation that is concerned about and fighting for the well being for all members of the Common Weal!
Again, had he stood up for something in America and at Oslo Norway 2 years ago, he would likely be the leader of the world-wide freedom movement that is taking place on the African continent and in parts of Asia. Instead, he is viewed as just another American 'also ran President', that happens to be black this time instead of white. Citizens of the world, in unlikely places, are standing up to demand justice, peace, democracy and new leadership. They cannot look to the current President of the United States, and sadly, Americans are having a similar dilemma at home.
If he had stood up 2-years ago, he wouldn't have to use warplanes or missiles, as he is currently doing in Libya in order to accomplish his aims. Consider Egypt for example, it didn't take warplanes to bring down President Mubarak. Did President Mubarak step down because President Obama told him to, some of you are thinking, or did he step down for other reasons? Answer: I don't know. What we do know is that freedom fighters around the world are telling hour President to stay home now, because he is no longer considered to be a freedom fighter or relevant.
As I close, in my opinion, Senator O'Bushama showed his true colors and lack of loyalty and willingness to fight, when he turned on his pastor and mentor of 25 years, the man who helped to shape him. So, in turn, I suspect that it is okay for his previous supporters and the rest of the world, particularly the ones who supported him, to turn their backs on him just as they did in the Mid-Terms.
And with regard to black Americans, also in closing: He never promised the black community a 'rose garden', and they voted for him anyway, whether out of desperation or not, believing that color made a difference. But were they wrong on both counts? Blacks should not be altogether disappointed with him, instead, they ought to be disappointed with themselves. A voter should never vote for a person, in my opinion, based on the color of their skin, gender ... Unfortunately, President. O'Bushama is a gift that keeps on giving to the wrong causes, particularly on the Right. Other than my girl, Mrs. Clinton, his cabinet is weak, and he has been further weakened by his recent missteps.
Even stalwart democratic Representative Dennis Kucinich, has had enough of Mr. O'Bushama. And in the eyes of Republicans, he is as liberal as they come. Oh, by the way, I deeply admire Representative Kucinich and would gladly support his candidacy. Who will be the next President of the United Emirates of America and the rest of the world, if we survive? I don't know, but don't be surprised if it isn't the black Dick Cheney swan-like clone, Citizen Cain. He may rise to the occasion, in spite of Newt, Romney, Gindall, Palin ..., that is if the public wants a Dick-Cheney in black face leader.
And again, all due respect to Mrs. Obama and the girls, because I admire them as well, just as I do Mr. Obama. However, if he waited, prior to tossing his hat, prematurely, into the Presidental Ring, by now, 2.5 years later, he would be, I believe, a great Senator or a good vice president. . I simply never believed that he was 'quite ready to be President' yet, and I don't care for the way that he has presided up to this point. A whole lot more would have been accomplished, if America had elected an experienced statesperson, one who knew their dark side from their white side, or their left from their right - we refer to that as 'self-actualization'. I was also hoping for something different than a Reagan-Bush clone, or a black swan. And time is running out, and soon it will likely be his, President Obama's, final curtain call or swan song - if he doesn't integrate his black and white (swan sides), and step into his role as leader.
And finally, what I have written should not make him feel bad if he were to read it, given that I didn't vote for him anyway, and won't vote for him in less than 2 years if things don't change - you didn't let me down, I knew where you stood all the time. And having said that, I won't vote for any of the other characters on the Right, 'droopy or snoopy', that I mentioned before either. Now who can I write in the next time? Perhaps, I will write in the 'the Wright Reverend Jeremiah'. I like calling him that. At least I know where he stands!
And having said that, Representative Dennis Kucinich, Run Kucinich Run, please! I can still recall the remarkable note that you sent me via the Washington Postblog several years ago. God is good!
Peace & Grace
Anecdotally: The economic recovery in California has been stalled by Republicans. Once again, they have thwarted the effort of a Democratic governor, who is trying to cut spending in the State of California. Republicans will obstruct anything that a Democrat will attempt to do, even when it agrees with their stated-positions. Thus they have earned the title, the Obstructionist Party. I was under the impression that they wanted to reduce spending. Sorry, Governor Brown and the other 40M of us in the State of California - we will get them soon, don't worry!
