Political Fab

Jessie "One Teardrop" Jackson has written a letter to President Obama. It's posted over at Essence. And the Reverend is asking the new Prez to carefully examine policies relating to the economy, education and Voting Rights Act. Congrats to President Obama on his first major policy win. His $819 billion stimulus plan (WTF does $819 even look like?) passed through the House last night with nan support from the Republicans. Just one of the benefits of a Democratic controlled Congress. Obama wants un-employed Americans to be able to get back to work and ll Americans to start spending in our economy again. This plan is supposed to help those things. Now the bill goes to the Senate. More ish when you read the rest... PETA must not know 'bout Mama Retha. They've been coming at her for years about all her furs and such. But now, her Hollywood Walk of Fame star has been tagged with the word “fur-hag” thanks to an anonymous anti-fur protester. PETA did the same to the Olsens and other folks' stars. Play with Ms. Franklin if y'all want.... BET's President and CEO Debra Lee was appointed to one of President Obama's roundtables concerning this much talked about stimulus package. Assembled at the White House meeting was all kinds of leaders from business and industry. And Deb was one of them. Not sure how I'm feeling about BET being in the mix. But I'll keep my concerns to myself this time around.... The Randomness: 1. For my fellow YBFers who care: Girl Scout cookies have been affected by the economy. They baked a whole lot less this year and won't even get to deliver to everyone due to rising transportation and baking costs. Damn. 2. Minister Farakhan went to visit former Detroit Player Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick in jail. By the way, Kwame is set to get out in a few days. Word has it he has a job offer in Texas. SMH.

Debra Lee may not just be

Debra Lee may not just be representing BET, after all she is a Brown Univ alum, so has this new urban intellectual pedigree that the Obamas appear to be bringing to the White House. Not sure of her full academic and professional background in industry however.

YBF and Readers. I support

YBF and Readers. I support Barack but this stimulus bill will not help the American people. Please do your research. JUST BECAUSE OBAMA and or the DEMS say it will work, throwing 900 BILLION at planned parenthood and other businesses that WONT stimulate anything but their pockets dont believe it! If the white house has to put out ads to convince to public of this bill doesnt that tell you something? Imagine if it was Bush...you would be against it. This new administration has all of you that follow every word by the nuts. Please dont be upset when there is dissapointment.

If Obama was having a meeting

If Obama was having a meeting with the CEO's of several companys then it makes perfect sense that Deb Lee was invited. For those who may not know, Ms. Lee holds a BA degree from Brown University and MA and JD degrees from Harvard University. So although many people think BET is not that important this wasn't about television it was about meeting with intelligent CEO's. And she fits the bill.

I call bullshit on the Kwame

I call bullshit on the Kwame Kilpatrick "job offer"! Puleeze. They dont play that ish here in Texas. As far as Jesse. GTFOH! Does he now know that no one gives 2 nuts about what he has to say... at all? I'll be happy when science finally allows for breast tissue transplant. Just a lil tint teeny bit Aretha's donation could make me a very happy woman.

Men like Jesse Jackson upsets

Men like Jesse Jackson upsets me. I wish he would show his support for President Obama by keeping his mouth shut!! But old veterans like The Rev. think they are entitled to the Presidency and other high offices just because they felt like they paved the way for people like President Obama.

Go to www.whitehouse.gov and the link is there that will take you to the stimulus plan on line. Read it for yourselves. Don't depend on the media to say what they will and not investigate. GO OBAMA! Do it!
