Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

A Few Thoughts… Before… written by Big Virge 7/11/2015

….. American voters, go to war !!!!!
or, should that be, Trump and Hilary … ???

The war, for them, is almost over … Thankfully !!!

However, it’s been a very interesting lead up to one of the most, highly anticipated results, to a Presidential Election !!!

As many keep repeating, it’s a landmark election, especially after Barack Obama’s election as the, Huh Hmmm …..

First, Black President ….

According to whose version of history you believe … ?!?
… which could now be followed by the First, female President !

In the last week, the Chicago Cubs create history by coming back from 3-1 down against the Cleveland Indians, to win their first World Series in over 100 years, only to then have the Irish Rugby Union Team, do a similar thing against New Zealand, days later, 111 years in their case !!!!! Amazingly, after the Kiwis had gone on a record breaking, 18 game winning run …. only to give it up, with a first victory, for Ireland against them !

Anyone seeing the trend, and getting a little nervous, regarding the trend ?

Well, as both an Oakland Raiders and Liverpool FC supporter, the fact that on the weekend before the election, they both, for the first time, in quite some time, top their respective divisions ….. Liverpool, of course, much more recently, than the Raiders, however, the Raiders did just beat the current, Superbowl champions !!!!!

Okay so, is this the week of upsets, as most now seem to believe that the Trumpster, will finally get, ” Trumped “, by Americas’ voting populous.

I have never believed that he couldn’t win, but, after the, again, amazing revelation of a further, FBI investigation into Hilary’s emails, and the then withdrawal of said investigation, conveniently, days before final voting, one thing that does seem realistic, is that, ” The Trumpster’ “, may well be right, when he says, that this election could be rigged, however, I would suggest that it would NEED TO BE RIGGED, for his Ignorant Ass to win … !!!!!

As certain Facebook posts have suggested, I am grateful to him, for showing us a level of truth, in terms of how, ” his type “, of … ” White American “, thinks, behaves and acts, because nobody can sit there talking about chips on black peoples’ shoulders anymore, and that prejudice, bigotry & racism, are just figments of our imaginations’ ….

…. that we are, even in 2016, STILL suffering inequalities, in how we’re treated, as if the last 12 months of US Policing hasn’t given enough credence to substantiate, such arguments … !!!!!

I have said before, and will say it again, black people need to recognise the kind of thinker, Hilary Clinton, has proven herself to be, and that, hugs with Jay Z, Queen Bey’, and support from Mr. Obama, should not indicate to them, that she has, any allegiance, or, Real Interest, in the struggles, of ……

Poor Black People !?!

Margaret Sanger is the name I will say again, and suggest, that people look for what Madame Clinton, has had to say about her.

It is also quite interesting to see the level of Global Stock Market Activity, that indicates that, Mr. Trump’s arrival in the Oval Office, would seemingly have HUGE ramifications, for world economies and currency values … !!!!!

Nothing to turn your nose up at !

I care not, who they vote in, from the perspective of having no particular wish to return to the US, in any kind of a hurry, however, as has been the case with Brexit’, I do recognise the importance of this election.

Trumps’ references in the last couple of days, to a Brexit’ type, shock victory, is NOT … that far fetched, if you log & think on the aforementioned events, however, Hilary winning in conjunction with Theresa Mays’ arrival at number 10 Downing Street, may also not be quite so coincidental … ???

It’s really gonna be, quite the night !!!

Will all the negative stuff about Trump, be enough to get Hilary in, or will her apparent indiscretions, via her email accounts, amongst other things, be what swings the voters minds ???

White America, in my humble opinion, are not so far from being prepared to let Donald make … ” America Great Again ” …

or should that be … KKK again … ?!?

Just a question, not an accusation, although it’s clear who the KKK want to win … !!!!!

So, many things going on, including a judicial decision that has stirred the Brexit pot, across the water …. leaves me thinking that, nothing in this election for US President is quite as it seems ….. or beyond happening ….

So, for now, i’m gonna leave it that, as voting begins to decide the winner,
and I listen to a young black male from America, in a documentary about the US Election, explain how he thinks that, Liberalism does not serve black people well …. and how that should seemingly, outweigh, Donalds’ rather inflammatory comments about race ….

…. to then listening to some white supremacists, who then throw the curve ball, that indicates that, voting for Clinton, means a vote to continue what America has been going through for the last 30 years, and a continuance of the status quo ….. which for the feminists, railing on about Trump, also affirms her standing alongside a confirmed, Liar and Cheater, who showed ….

What exactly … ???

A TOTAL, lack of respect for his wife ….

It is amazing to hear people speak about this election, as if it’s solely about, upholding, ” American Values ” …. whatever they are … ???

One has to wonder what will happen …. and how this subsequently, will affect the world …..

Which is why, before we get to finally, know the score ….

I’m dropping a few ….
of my thoughts …. before ….

Bless Up People ….

The Virge out of here …..
for now ………………………………..
