“Enough” … Performed & Written by Big Virge

Okay folks, so, quite the interesting few weeks it’s been, Barca putting the smack down on Liverpool, in no uncertain terms, only to feel The Anfield Massive, rock their world with an equally impressive 4-0 home victory, to send them through to another Champions’ League Final !!!

Incredible, but the job still has to be finished, so hopefully Jurgen can get his tactics right, and dismiss Spurs, but I wouldn’t like to put money on this one, two adventurous teams, with plenty of options, so, it’ll be an interesting final fa’ sure methinks !!!!!

Judd Trump doing the same to John Higgins, to win his first World Championship, congrats to him, he’s avoided becoming the new, Jimmy White, by making sure he got the BIG ONE, at least once.

However, away from sport, well of course, The Avengers Endgame Finale, has come and gone, but wow, what a response, and appropriate ending to a very lengthy series of 22 movies, that are all linked, in some way or t’other, to each another !

I think a very impressive job has been done by the cast, and Russo Brothers, of actually pulling it off.

However ……

UNLIKE The British Voting Public, the fans, of which I am one, have certainly NOT had enough, so, hope there will be more, well crafted, fantasy stuff to come from the Marvel Universe !!!

However, back to the world of politics and politicians doing everything, but, pleasing those who choose to embrace them, as the right folks to guide their respective nations to a life of peace, prosperity and happiness.

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

It’s clear from voting patterns, that many have had enough, from Britain to France, to Venezuela, where things really are pretty crazy !

Africans in South Africa are in the midst of more elections, although other parts of Africa are still seemingly, having issues with rigging, bully tactics, and violence, in the appointment of leaders.

The Israelis and Palestinians continue to prove that they haven’t yet, had enough of attacking one another, in more and more senseless acts of violence, and of course, The Trumpster is still Trumping any kind of conviction for his alleged, illicit practices, to gain his position of power, Mueller Report or NOT …. although it seems that one or two parts of the legal establishment, may have had enough of the Presidents efforts to block things coming to light, that perhaps need to be the subject of more judiciary hearings !

Indonesians also seem to have had enough of political wrangling, which has lead to alleged usage of live bullets on protestors, by the Indonesian forces, just CRAZY !!!

Even Drake is suggesting, ENOUGH with the disrespecting of each other by artists … Huh Hm ….

I think he’s in the wrong part of the music realm, to be making such requests ….

Brooks Koepka has definitely NOT, had enough of winning, and did a stellar job in retaining the PGA Championship, congratulations to him !

…. and of course, the ongoing racism debate in England, which is being seen as a problem, that, the powers that be, are not and have not, done enough to eradicate ….

Interestingly, the Brits have also been told, ENOUGH with your claim, to hold on to lands that should perhaps, be in other nations hands, thus, The Chago Islands, according to The UN, should go back to the Mauritians.

The word … ” Decolonisation ” … seems to be being thrown around, much to the concern of the Brits, and notable allies, in a landslide vote that saw 100 plus countries support Mauritius’s claim to the land, which has of course been used as a military base for British & American armed forces ….

I dunno about decolonisation, however, if this is as suggested by the Brits, a dangerous precedent, well, let the danger continue, if it’s purpose is to continue the empires demise, which does appear to be happening, even if, only in minimal ways, long may it continue in my view ….

…. which leads me back to Britain, and this incredible situation where, Prime Minister, Theresa May, is constantly being called out as a failure, who should now remove herself from office, resignations, and subtle positioning, by her apparent …

” Colleagues ” ….. Huh Hm …..
To … Usurp her position !!!

Yawn Yawn YAWN …

BORING ………………

However, the signs are there, that people are beginning to recognise the error of their ways, in supporting these ministers, who they are slowly, but surely, beginning to have …

Like This Weeks Poem Suggests, on various levels ….

ENOUGH of.

So, Silent Protest then … Punishment … !!! … written by Big Virge 29/04/2014

Okay, so, it takes a lot to make me wanna blog about anything these days, as most things are just a regurgitation of much, that has gone on before, however, so much has been going on at the moment, that, I figured I should say sumthin’, Big Virge style …..

Well, as the typo i’ve just corrected from Nig Virge, to Big Virge has prompted me, I have to start with the NBA, firstly, the good stuff.

What about this first round of the playoffs huh ….. !!?!!

Overtimes’ … ALL OVER THE PLACE, Miami doing their thing, and cruising through, but, wow, Brooklyn and Toronto, Deron Williams, KG & The Truth & Joe Johnson, in battle with a surprisingly resilient Toronto, good stuff there !!!

San Antonio and Dallas, locked in battle, as some of the old guard of quality players get their zimmer frames charged for another Playoff push, Parker, Duncan, Dirk & Vince Carter, producing varying levels of quality, and my man Ginobli, still shaking and baking, confusing and bemusing with everything from subtle drives to the rim, to, 3 point shooting !!!!!

Now, No Fakers are allowed in the west this year, it seems, The Clippers & Golden State, again, a very interesting matchup, as is the Memphis/Oklahoma draw, KD under some pressure from Zac and Gasol, (being Mark not Pau who = Mr. Gasoft !!!), Chicago, under some, Serious Pressure, from Washington, Indiana, not looking quite as strong as last year, The Hawks now having a chance to close out as they are 3-2 up currently, and we’ve got Houston in a real struggle with Portland !!!!!

This last match-up has been, INCREDIBLE … !!! … in terms of the fact that, 3, yes I said … ” 3 ” … overtime games, have already occurred in this series, and we’re only now at game 5 !!!!!

Simply, crazy runs, incredible comebacks, and somewhere in the mix is a Dwight Howard, now, MAKING, free throws, but, beyond that, not exactly showing the … ” Superman ” … promise of his now, infamous, slam dunk contest win !!!!!

Same ol’ same, essentially, only half, if that, of the, ” Howard Package ” working, which, must be frustrating for Coach Mchale, James Harden and the rest of the Houston team, including, Chandler Parsons, who literally was … ON FIRE … for the 1st half of Game 4, which was as tough a win as Portland have had, in my opinion, thus far !

Parsons, in particular, was doing what many, i’m sure, would suggest Howard should be doing, DOMINATING … !!!!!, which seems to have somehow, left James Harden, finding it difficult to find his game, now that he needs it most !!!

A couple of 30+ performances aside, he has seemed, lacklustre, and, out of sync with his team for most of the series, thus far, however, Lamarcus Aldridge and his Blazers, are somewhat of an enigma.

They have had a strong season, by all accounts, yet, seem to lack the definitive squad, that you look at and fear, but, they have now, put, Serious Fear of DEFEAT, in the minds of The Rockets, who now have a mountain to climb to recover from 3-1 down, with 3 to play !!!

Damian Lillard is growing with every playoff performance, much like Steph Curry & Klay Thompson have done, since last year, but, I think they’ll need more than Batum & Mo Williams to continue, against stronger teams than Houston, but, who knows, so many unknowns, as the playoffs get serious !!!!!

Okay then, the positives over ….

What The Fuck is Donald Sterling on … !?!

… and … “silent protests”, regarding, racist statements made in a … Private Conversation … between, Good ol’ Donald, and his girlfriend, who is apparently, half Mexican and half black, which, SOMEHOW, found it’s way into TMZ’s hands, hmmmmm are you smelling what,” The Virge is Cooking !!?!!”

Yup, that ugly word, ” Racism “, that, certain white folks seem to think we should of forgotten about by now, has reared it’s ugly head, from the Clippers Owner, who has now been banned for life, after being … “Outed”, as some kind of Klansman with a LA Clippers logo on his hood !!!!!

Thus, the rhetoric has been in full flow, from the likes of TNT’s, Inside The NBA panel.

Kenny “The Jet” Smith, seems deeply upset by the revelations about Sterling, while Shaq & Charles Barkley seemed, a little less, angst-filled about it, Barkley, being very quick to essentially point out, that, most of the men at that table, alongside of many, over the last 25 years, be they players, or, members of the media circus that follows the NBA, have contributed to Donald Sterlings wealth, thus, who doesn’t have dirty hands regarding the support of an individual, who, although currently employing, a black coach, and numerous high profile, black players, seems to hold the view that, “Black folks should stay away from his teams games !!!”.

Now, let me just stress, HIS GIRLFRIEND, Vivian Stiviano, aka Maria Vanessa Perez, is the woman who seems to have, SOMEHOW, let her conversation with Mr. Sterling, become public property ???

Things are smelling fishy, she’s his … ” Girlfriend ” … yet, Sterling has 3 children and a wife, whose suing her, due to lavish gifts received from Sterling over the last couple of YEARS … ?!?!?

Now, she seems to be no better than a gold digging’, lil whore, by all accounts, NOT, my opinion, merely speculation, on the basis of Bentleys, Ferrari’s and a Million Dollar duplex, apparently bought for her, by Sterling, so, could this be a devious ploy to get money before what she has … ” Earned ” … is taken from her … ???

Who knows, the conversation is a very strange one, which seems to have her apologising for a variety of things, one being Sterlings attitude towards this picture, that she posted on Instagram with Magic Johnson …. hmmmmm ….

Then the … ” Silent Protest ” … from the Clippers and the show of solidarity, via black socks, armbands etc, a la … John Carlos & Tommie Smith, on the Olympic podium in 1968.

I’ve heard this about black folks before, ” Silent Support “, which in my book, is NO SUPPORT … at all !!!!!

Thus, it has fallen on, relatively new commissioner, Adam Silver, to demand Sterling sell up and pay a fine of a couple of million, which, to a BILLIONAIRE, like Sterling, is pretty much like, a drop in the ocean of pennies, he seems to like spending on a bit of mixed race ass, and, on the black people who serve his financial needs !!!!!

However, the life ban is, well, interesting at best, but, only if you can get past the fact that, at, 80, good ol’ Don, surely ain’t got that long left to be getting anything done for himself, let alone, get to games, to watch his, Beloved Clippers !!!

I believe, at his age, a big screen TV, or, Home Theatre, should suffice for his viewing needs.

Thus, the big affirmation of applause comes for Silver, from players, old and current, as well as the NBA populous.

Meanwhile ……

Dani Alves eats bananas, to combat racism before taking a corner for Barca at Villareals’ ground in Spain !!!!!

I think the quote that has me the most pissed, is that of Ex-England striker, Gary Lineker, who seems to believe, this is the … ” BEST WAY ” … to combat racism …..

to which, i’m like ….. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MAN ?!!!?

Maybe, Adam Silver should of made Sterling eat bananas, until whatever Racism rests in him is forced out due to, Internal Banana Combustion …. !!!!!

I’m getting sick of the continued, denial, of basic truth, and defence of individuals, like say, Luis Suarez, by people who seem to think that, having black in their fam’, automatically means, THEY CAN’T POSSIBLY BE RACIST !!!!!

WOW, Okay ….

So, that’s all we need to prove, that, we’re all from Africa, originally, thus, all racism is over !!!!!

Thought most folk with brains, that function, have pretty much accepted the Africa bit, by now !!!!!

Suffice to say, I REALLY, do believe that it’s time to stop all these, “silent protests”, and reliance on the same people who, PROTECT, these racists and liars, until their stupidity, exposes them for others to see !!!!!

Would you trust a black man who robbed you, to take care of money you’d just stolen, because he happens to be a teef too ???

I doubt it !!!!!

So, let’s not get carried away with, happiness, or some sense of vindication, due to punishment for men, like Sterling, who’ve been able to build their wealth and ENJOY IT !!! … when they were relatively young, while the likes of Trayvon, and, a high proportion of young black males, don’t even get to see the latter years of their lives, due to actions of racists, who are smarter than, an old geriatric ass, who happens to have forgotten, the world we now live in, thus, gets duped by, again, a woman who would seem quite happy to be the girlfriend of a … ” Married Man “, who, happens to hold the views of a Klansman, until it comes to getting his tings’ wet, via, whatever hole she decides to open, for her gold digging exploits to pay off !!!!!

I don’t agree that Sterling should be forced to sell anything, as that doesn’t hurt his finances does it, which is clearly where his allegiance lies, to the papes ???

…. but, I think that, the black people who are part of The Clippers organisation, should take a serious look at themselves, and instead of wearing the jerseys, inside out, should either, pool their resources to buy Sterling out, or, do the honourable thing, and leave him and his white compadres to their arena, and to finding success without them.

The US of A, revolves around the Dollar Bill, so, hit these men, where it hurts, and we might see them behave they crotch … !!! … rather than hold such, ignorant views, which they clearly have done, for quite some time, deep inside their minds, and CLEARLY, behind boardroom doors … !!!!!

Now, bring on the B-Ball, and let’s hope the playoffs continue to provide something for the NBA, to be proud to represent, sport and sportsmanship, of the highest standard, that has … NO COLOUR LINES.

One Love y’all …

The V out tie …

Peace & Unity.
