America’s Dad falls from Grace

Standard

Bill Cosby…the Man dubbed “America’s-Dad”, has been found to be setting very negative examples for his American-Children: the American-People-those who’ve watched his many shows, such as “The Electric Company”, “I Spy”, “The Cosby Show”, etc. From the late 1960’s to the present, Bill Cosby had been lauded as one of the most ideal role-models for African-Americans, Young-People, on TV. He had successfully managed to star in and also produce some of the most popular shows in Entertainment, portraying African-Americans in the most positive of lights. This had been very useful in the eyes of so many as to breakdown racial-stereotypes against African-Americans, through showing that we also have similar family-values, work-ethics, educational-merits as any other American demographics.

However, it seems as though all of his work has just gone down the drain in light of his admittance of providing sedative drugs to Women he wanted to have sex with & ironically many Women have already accused him of Sexual-Misconduct, Rape, etc. This has truly been a blow to America, more particularly to the African-American Community. This is especially true because at one point in time, there were very few positively portrayed Afro-Americans to aspire to be like, other than the characters on shows which were produced by Bill Cosby. It’s like he both made & broke the progress of the African-American, in both real-life as well as in Entertainment. He has basically destroyed the exact same thing that he helped to build.

And, of course, like so many People, I myself was very skeptical of the Sexual-Abuse allegations against Cosby, and the following questions kept flowing through my mind: why now, that he’s such an elderly Person: why now, while he had once been one of the most respected entertainers in Entertainment-History; why now, when all of the accusers were all grown-ups? Honestly, what really had me mistrust these allegations was the allegations made against him, when Judith Huth had accused Cosby of Sexually-Abusing her at Hugh Hefner’s infamous Playboy-Mansion, while she was a 15 year-old: what the Hell was she doing at the Playboy-Mansion  as a 15 year-old, where were her Parents, why weren’t they sited for Parental-Neglect, why hasn’t Hugh Hefner himself been scrutinized and/or charged with facilitating Sexual-Abuse of Minors at his home?

However, in his own deposition, he had admitted to giving Women the drug Quaalude. This admission has basically sealed his fate, and has made it even easier for his accusers & critics to have ammunition against him. Now that he has admitted to at least one of the allegations against him, the floodgates have been busted open & he has no ability to run away from the responsibility of his actions. Now, where does he go from here? Where do his loved-ones, fans, admirers, go from here? Where do his accusers go from here? Where does America go from here? I really don’t have any answers. But, what I do know is that this has become a national-tragedy.

Do You want a Wife or a Baby-Momma?!!!

Standard

Don’t be tryin’ to creep into all the Sister’s-Circles, pretending like you’re lookin’ to get intended.

When what you really want is another notch on your belt, someone to slide with, to take to bed.

Playing with a Believing-Woman, you’re playing with Fire.

There’s no extinguisher for any Man’s misdirected desire.

Just because she gives you “Salam” doesn’t give you the green-light to slam.

If your claim of loving her is true, go to her Guardian, do it right & be a Man.

You are supposed to be collecting blessings, not “body-counts”!!!

What’ll you do, if she gets knocked-up & your name announced?

Now, you’re spending the next 20-years, making Repentance…

…For a few moments of pleasure, barely more than 60-seconds.

Penn State has officially become the Catholic Church of College Sports:

Standard

As far back as 1994, according to a Grand Jury report, released by CNN, Jerry Sandusky, who had worked for Penn State University officially for 32 years prior to 1999, and was then allowed to stay on for another 12 years in a volunteer capacity at Penn State until this year, had been reported, probed and investigated, throughout his tenure as an employee at Penn State, for having the ugly history of touching & loving young men, in all of the wrong places. Yet, apparently, this was not good enough to compel the Penn State administration to go forth and press charges upon this man, or at the very least fire him, before this sex scandal became what it was: the single most disturbing & shocking scandal in the history of College Sports.

This monumental level of irresponsibility, carelessness and mismanagement of campus affairs has shaken the College Sports world to its very core, with the presumed “King of College Football”, Joe Paterno, at the center of such sexual perversion & misconduct within his own ranks. In spite of Paterno being recently dethroned by the “Nobles of Penn State”, the Penn State University Board of Trustees, evidently, the King is still wears his Collegiate crown & still commands his King Author-like authority, in the minds & hearts of  his loyal subjects, which consists of thousands of Penn State students, as well as millions of College Football fans around the world.

Unfortunately, it’s very obvious that the standard policy of Penn State has been a third-eye blind position. There were several eye-witness reports, from at least two fellow Penn State employees: Tim Calhoun, a campus janitor, and Mike McQuery a Wide-Receiver Football Coach, whom both had witnessed two separate accounts of sexual-misconduct committed by Sandusky, yet nothing substantial was done to bring Sandusky to account for even being accused of these allegations, it was just swept under the rug.

To add insult to injury,  the terrible irony is that those whom he was abusing were participants of a youth organization that he had founded, called the Second Mile Program, a Pennsylvaina non-for profit state-wide program for wayward youth. In my opinion, since Sandusky had done what he’s done, those youth who were in the circumference of Sandusky were much better off being as wayward youth-He basically used his position in this organization to get his demented rocks off, and maintain access to as many children as he could’ve gotten his sick hands on, subsequently scaring them for life.

But, that’s not all, the reports from both Penn State staff, as well as several victims themselves confirm that this twenty-year long string of abusive actions of Sandusky were done directly within the confines of Penn State campus grounds, like in the sports locker rooms, for example, where McQuery said that he witnessed Sandusky performing oral-sex upon a young man, and Calhoun said that he witnessed Sandusky leaving a locker room with a young man, as well as direct reports from the victims of Sandusky themselves. Even if all of these allegations were in fact false, there is absolutely no excuse on part of the Penn State authorities to not at least report these allegations to proper law-enforcement and/or childcare agencies-This is absolutely outrageous!!!

It just goes to show you how corruption and lack of concern for one’s fellow man can bring forth. With all of the rallies by the student body of Penn State in support of Paterno, along with threats targeted towards McQuery, for having a ounce of courage to step up & admit that much wrong was committed without proper investigation, where’s the support for the victims & their families, who trusted people like Sandusky with their children, who let them down in one of the most heinous ways possible. When the Penn State Board of Trustees finally decided to terminate Paterno, people actually went up in arms, in the streets, not caring that the innocence of several persons had been violated indiscriminately, by a monster, whom should be executed for his crimes against children, and the fact that this occurred for the most part uninterrupted, unchecked and not taken seriously at all by the members of the Penn State Papacy at the highest levels, is oh so similar to so many of these notoriously infamous Catholic Church sex-scandals, that for years were left unchallenged.

My question is really this: How & why does a University employee accumulate that much power & influence at the highest levels of Campus administration, to be given innumerable amounts of passes, to continue working and volunteering at a place where he’s been sited for repeated sexual-offences for nearly twenty years?!!!

The answer: Well, there is no reasonable answer for this amount of lackadaisical immorality on the part of Sandusky, nor the incredible irresponsibility & stupidity on the part of Penn State authorities, for failing to notify proper law-enforcement to deal with this ever-important issue.

My thoughts on U.S. political sex-scandals:

Standard

Very recently, there’s been a whole lot of hoopla about Herman Cain’s alleged sexual-inappropriateness, which he now has to answer for. However, he’s thus denied any & all accounts of sexual-misconduct. But, enough about that, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of this issue & and that is this:

People are becoming less concerned with a person’s moral-character, and more concerned with how a politician functions in office. Well, having considerable moral-character should/would in fact reflect in the policies that a person in the highest political office in the U.S. supports & executes, I would assume naturally.

Yet, morality is something that the U.S., along with our general global society is losing more & more by the day. You can go back as far as Thomas Jefferson, whom authored the Declaration of Independence, who was a known womanizer, and fathered several children out of wedlock with his slave, Sally Hemings. This was in fact acceptable, because at this time in American history, African slaves weren’t even regarded as complete Human beings. We can also look into the 1960’s, where President John F. Kennedy outlandishly cheated on his wife, in public at that, with no discretion what so ever on his part.

We can also reflect upon even the life of the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, whose sexscapades have become a legendary testament of how sexual-corruption has left a permanent stain on all levels of the U.S. Federal government. Then, possibly the most famous of them all is Bill Clinton, who initially denied any & all allegations that he had any sexual-contact with Monica Lewinski. But, as a result of being placed under the threat being prosecuted for purgery, as well as Presidential-Impeachment, finally fessed up to not only having an official relationship with her, about also to receiving the most famous blowjob in the U.S. of U.S. politics. And, then, we all remember the recent revelations of former U.S. Senator John Edwards, who ran for President in 2004 & ended up being John Kerry’s running mate against George W. Bush, then again in 2008, which he ended up having to bow-out of the Presidential race, cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, while actually running for President.

Next, even more recent, we have the infidelity fiascoes that have brought down former Governors James McGreevey of New Jersey & Elliot Spitzer of New York. And, then, not too long ago, there was Anthony Weiner, who just couldn’t keep his wiener off of the internet, who completely embarrassed himself, and his family, and for what?!!! Now, as recent as this year, we have an aspiring contender for the seat in the Oval Office, caught up in a sex-scandal. Herman Cain, presumably, the Barack Obama of the Republican Party, has just been red-flagged amid recent allegations of sexual-misconduct. I don’t know whether something like this will ruin his chance of going toe-to-toe with Obama, for the 2012 election, but it still looks really bad-Please, keep in mind that these guys who’ve been caught up in these scandals are not just some run of the mill politicians here, these are big-leaguers, whom have enacted & supported relevant governmental policies in their respective realms of public service, which have affected & still affects our lives as U.S. citizens.

I have the following to ask all of you: If you have individuals, like these politicians, who have been implicated/involved in various sex-scandals and/or confirmed to play significant parts in these scandals, willingly betraying their respective spouses & then lying about their wrongs when called to task for honesty, then what should make us, as U.S. citizens, think that that these same politicians would be loyal to us, as their political constituents, as we place our general trust in them to conduct honest affairs of state-How can these people be trusted with the general welfare of this nation, when they can’t even keep their penises in their pants?!!!

Think about this, people!!!
