Stay Woke, Y'all

Updated on July 9, 2017
Impeach 45, Impeach 45!
Impeach 45, Impeach 45!

Impeachment on her mind.

You have to admit it. Maxine Waters is kinda funky.

She screams, bellows and chants, “Impeach 45, impeach 45.” She contorts her face and shakes her bigwig head and calls for driving the 45th President out of office. She’s going to find a reason for impeachment at a later date I guess. She concludes this speech to her enthusiastic crowd by yelling, “ Stay Woke.”

Easy Money!

A member of the Democratic Party she’s served in Congress in the House of Representatives since l990. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named Waters the most corrupt member of Congress in 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011. She is now worth between $3,512,984 and $5,440,998.

She’s the darling of South Central Los Angeles, home of the Rodney King riot.

Did you see the Rodney King riot on TV? I did. It was live and absolutely horrible. I watched as a trucker by the name of Reginald Denny was dragged out of his truck and pummeled almost to death. One man stood on Denny's neck while others kicked him, spit on him; another hit him in the head with a claw hammer. They danced and made gang signs in the intersection where Denny lay in a pool of blood. Maybe they thought he was dead. But he lived despite receiving 9l fractures to his skull. Saved by good Samaritans.

Denny being jumped on as he tries to crawl to safety.

Smoke billowing from the city.

Awesomeness.
Awesomeness.

Businesses were set on fire; bricks were thrown at police, store windows broken and of course looting, looting, and more looting. Innocent drivers unlucky enough to be driving the streets were stopped and terrorized, beaten and bloodied. Many store owners and businesses never recovered.

Lucky Me

It could have been me! I was in South Central LA on that day, that very afternoon. I’d acquired a little house that was in foreclosure and I intended to clean it up, refurbish and sell it. I’m not a complete fool however. I had Windwalker and Little Bear with me. They were kicking back on the front porch, looking awesome.

I had no phone and no idea what a nasty brew was simmering just minutes from where I was scrubbing out a toilet. I left a little early from my project and got past South Central just minutes before all hell broke loose. When I got home I turned on the TV and saw what I’d been lucky enough to avoid.

"understandable and acceptable"

Reginald Denny is a white man and he had long blond hair and that was like a beacon to those awful rioters. As I watched Denny being dragged from his truck fear swept through me. My knees buckled. My youngest son, who was at the time a very cool rocker type and had a lot of long blond hair, would soon be driving those very streets on his way home in his cruddy little pickup truck. He made it home safely but he promised his mother to tuck his hair under his cap if he ever drove through Los Angeles again.

Anyway, fun Maxine Waters had this to say about her constituent’s behavior that dreadful afternoon, “If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.”

tuck up that hair kid

Well, Maxine, I have a lot of trouble labeling that riot “understandable or acceptable.” And it would be even more difficult had my young son been dragged from his truck and beaten because he is white.

Stay Woke, y’all.

      I was in college during the Sixties, seen my share of riots, and I'll never condone violence no matter the reason. There has to be a better way.

      Right Paula:

      One could write an entire humorous book on Pelosi's face and eyelid lifts, Warren's sacred Indian background and hysterical speeches and Maxine's clobbering of history.

      They make Democrats fun!

      Right, mslizzee.....and she sure can make us laugh!! She really needs to retire from the Government payroll and do the Comedy Club circuit!

      (and the woman has not a single clue she literally makes a friggan moron of herself, every time she speaks......Clueless......just a vast, dark & hollow abyss where a brain should be.

      How about Announcing: The new & even more moronic "Three Stooges".....Waters, Pelosi & high-Cherokee-cheek-bones-like-PaPaw, Warren)

      Thank you Paula. All this time I thought she was a real representative she was really just a there for a bit of humor . A joke, a jester, a laughing stock, a class clown and so on and so on.

      Hello folks! Look, I try to be realistic and use simple common sense. The democrats aren't fooling me! I know damned well that Maxine Waters is a highly-paid "plant," for the sole purpose of comic relief.

      Think about it. There is no other possible reason for her to even exist or ever open her incredibly IGNORANT mouth. If she isn't God's idea of a Universal Prank on the world, we truly ARE screwed and should prepare for terminal Panic Mode!

      They've even gone to the trouble to provide 3 under-studies in Pelosi, Warren and Reid!! What a country!

      Waters should be incarcerated! She could bunk with Pelosi and Warren, after all orange is the new black.

      Yes Greg, she thinks Russia invaded North Korea and rejecting Sharia Law is bigoted.

      She is a great example why there should be limits on terms in congress. And, actually, I believe there should be an age limit. Maybe even mental checks at times. There is definitely something wrong in her head.
