So, ” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You ?” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so like WOW !?!

First Things FIRST …..

Condolences and thoughts go to those in the Bahamas, whose lives have been ruined by the devastation of Hurricane Dorian … !!!!!

Thankfully, brushed past Barbados, in a less heightened state, but saw the level of fear that such natural phenomena can bring, even when they don’t hit … !!!!!

Anyway ….

What On Earth is going on in this world of ours ?!?

Well, it would seem to me as though the iron fist of governance, is spreading its wings, just about everywhere !?!

Gotta start with Boris and the incredible moves he’s pulling to get the type of Brexit’ deal, that is frightening, even his own MP’s ?!?

This has immediately led to petitions, and demonstrations by people who are far from impressed with his seemingly, blatant disregard for due, Democratic Processes, to drive how this Brexit’ matter gets done and dusted ???

NOT GOOD Folks !!!

TRUST ME On That … !!!!

However, the machine keeps churning along, regardless of the issues that will clearly have, massive knock on effects, whichever way things pan out.

However, the political ranglings of the last two days, have really shown, just how manipulative politicians can be, especially when it comes to interpretations of the law, and how they can be, circumnavigated !!!

Okay, so off to Kashmir, where the unrest over this land is again, not quite as insignificant as maybe, people are thinking …..

Then we have the Hong Kong situation, which seems to be getting more and more volatile, as protests continue, and go global, volatility, that is in no small way, partly due to Anti – Protester … Protesters … ?!?

And …..

Military, as well as police actions, now including water cannons in Hong Kong !!!

Africa … ???

Well, the usual nonsensical stuff, as in, nations from the same continent, allowing colonial labels to stop them, from seeing each other as AFRICANS, First and FOREMOST … !!?!!

…. ahead of being say, Nigerians, or South Africans, which seems to be creating, continued ….

XENOPHOBIC …

I REPEAT ….

XENOPHOBIC actions, based upon an anger, being aimed at said nations people, creating businesses, in what are foreign lands, according to these nationalists, who are making these attacks !!!

In times like these …
PURE MADNESS … !!?!!

As if black people don’t face enough pressures from the world at large !

However, as per, Mr. Chappelle’s observations, in his latest stand-up, “ Sticks and Stones “, which throws some very, well aimed darts into the realm of being PC, in todays’ world, and this ever increasing confusion as to who is who, and who can say what to who, and continue to move freely … !?!

Y’all know where I’m heading, if not,
check it out for yourselves … !!!

There’s SO MUCH MORE Madness that is happening, I could go on and on, but won’t ….

Simply because, the vibe seems to be one of revolution against, the type of controls that are being applied socially, however, interestingly, from certain segments of his show, against artistry, even from an entertainers perspective, whose art is comedic, as in, not meant to be taken too seriously … ???

Hmmm …..

As I’ve been suggesting to people, for a while now, this is a dangerous time, where speaking your mind, even articulately, when speaking on sex, especially now … Or … Governance, has wide repercussions for us all, as Boris Johnson’s actions, in particular show !

We now have leadership, and movements, who only seem concerned about THEIR OWN Agendas, and because of their power, seem to think that they can dictate everything, from, politically fractious actions, to what you express artistically, especially when it comes to the LGBT …

However, I’ll leave you with one of Mr. Chappelles’ gems….

Why is it so problematic to say …

… “ Faggot “ …

As he was told long ago, whilst doing the Chappelle Show.

However, it’s not such an issue,
when it comes to saying … “ Nigga’ “ …

THOUSANDS of times … !!!
…. when you really check it, to make people laugh …. !?!

It’s a question that the LGBT populous, who we now know, are the main architects of much that is seen as … “ Entertainment “ …

Well …..

In my opinion, art, like expression, should be FREE …..

Even if it offends, because you know what … ?!?

NOBODY’s PERFECT …

And You …

CAN’T LIKE EVERYTHING … !!!
and, Neither SHOULD YOU … !!!

So, on that note, as people across the globe, continue to revolt, over different issues ……

My question this week is …..

” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???

Today, the indication is that there will be a new Italian PM, in 2017 ???

A lot of footballers are coming to the table, to expose the incredible levels of apparent, player abuse by British coaches !!!!!

Right wing movements across Europe, bar Austria, of all places, are on the go, and seemingly, on the rise …..

(A third of Austria’s populous voting for a Far Right group, should not though, be overlooked !)

Racism is definitely on the go, as ever, and immigration may well be the next thing to go, in terms of borders being open, to those escaping Syria in particular, but, I think that this is an excuse to keep more than Syrians, or more importantly, Muslims out of Europe …. and if Trump has his way, out of America too …..

Fidel gone, so who knows where Cuba will end up, in the coming months and years ???

Oh and just one quick mention of the case that has, somehow, found it’s way to being a mistrial … ?!?

…. that of, the shooting of Walter Scott by a certain, Officer Slager, as described in the piece, Open Season, which I posted recently …..

Looks like Officer Slagers’ case will be, yet another, to go on the list of cases against the police, that have left the victims family without any sense of justice, or respect for the fact, that, their loved one was essentially, gunned down in cold blood, by one charged with the duty to … ” Serve & Protect ” …

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

So many things going on …..

I figure that it’s time for me to explain and show, some of the places that I have been and will continue to …. Go …….

So, here are some of the places that ……..
