They are ringing, Quite Loud, right now folks… ” When Your Bell Tolls ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Well what’s up folks …..

Dee Rasshole world facing alarm, all bout dee place !!!!!

I’ll just say these two words first ….

North Korea …. and move on …..

Texas getting beaten up by Hurricane Harvey !

Here in Barbados, it was a light hit that Irma gave, however, one surfer dead, a roof or two, severely disturbed, and I had a report of 7 foot of landfall at one point !

However, St Martin, Barbuda, Cuba and the list continues, of places either devastated, or severely damaged, Jose soon followed, if less forcefully, and now mainland America is taking liks’ AGAIN, from Irma !

Floridians trying to preserve their homes and lives, with all kinds of crazy talk, about staying in the face of one of the most powerful Hurricanes in HISTORY !!!!!

Good luck to em’ … !!!!!

Then we have Mexico going through a massive earthquake, and aftershocks, that closed down schools and much more throughout the country, Landslides in Africa, flooding in Italy & Asia …..

and, OF COURSE …. back to the disturbingly frequent

Alarm bells being rung, due to North Korean Nuclear Testing …..
which kind of makes Mr. Putin seem, quite tame, in comparison !!!

Well maybe, NOT … Tame … !!!!!!

Alarm bells are ringing, or maybe that’s Tolls, as this poem suggests ……
ALL OVER the place …. For REAL right now !!!!!!

It’s pretty clear that Mr. Trumps……

” Hire and Fire ” … Whitehouse …
rings bells quicker than huskies, pulling sleds !!!

Hence,

This poem DOES NOT ….

Definitively deal with the power of natures wrath, in delivering Final Bells for people, but, covers aspects that reflect on the idea of why & what you are due to face in these interesting, and somewhat disturbing days ahead ……

So far so good for me, however, having lost a good buddy recently,

RIP Ian ……..

…. it is clear that mortality for many is a SERIOUS thing, right now …..

I of course, send out condolences to anyone who has lost loved ones as a result of natural happenings of recent, but, also suggest to those who are currently suffering, due to human failings, and those who, more importantly, think they are beyond being touched by something that could just stop them in their tracks …..

THAT …..

You take note of these words, and once again, MORE IMPORTANTLY, The Warning Signs, that nature, and, CERTAIN HUMANS ……

KEEP GIVING …. !!!!!

….. that suggest that, maybe, people need to humble themselves right now, on all kinds of fronts !!!!

Not just in the face of those, that are a result of Mother Nature’s beautiful, powerful & at times, destructive weather !!!!!

Take care out there, wherever you are people, and remember that, eventually, they toll for us all ……

” 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 ……..

And Now, the Fun Times Begin…. written by Big Virge … 10/11/2016

So, as expected, a week of upsets and surprises has now been completed by Donald J Trump, winning the US Election over Hilary Clinton … !!!!!

So, the fun times begin ….

Orrrrrrrrr …. NOT …. ?!!!?

…. dependent upon, how much media rhetoric you’ve bought into, or again, NOT, as the case may be ….

So, having watched BBC Coverage of most of the results coming in, and listening to the comments being dropped by political commentators, and financial experts, it was immediately evident, that, obviously, the black guests who were, Clinton supporters, were stuck in some bubble, of, ” Clinton Love “, without Monica Lewinsky … LOL …

… that had them in some delusional frame of mind, regarding the results, especially after a relatively fast start for Hilary in quite a few states, but as the night wore on, a lot of talk was suddenly backtracking, and looking for reasons as to why the landslide, that, it actually became, came to pass ….

Now I use the term, landslide, loosely, as it was a matter of decimal percentage points in Key sates like Florida, Trayvon country, which was quite interesting, as they had 99% of the vote in for quite some time with Trump in front, before they’d confirm that the projection had him ACTUALLY, winning … ???

…. which had me thinking, rigging could so easily be done in Elections.

Emily Maitlis, Andrew Neil and others were pontificating, giving us Historical references, to Reagan and further back, but none could, ” Apparently “, quite believe what was happening …..

Well, hate to bust their white bubbles, but hey, YEAH, ” White America “, confirmed their wish I think, to see, Black Lives Matter ideals, diminished, and more importantly, to have a white face back in power, who actually, has been a breath of fresh air, compared to the calm, calculating rhetoric of another Democrat, who clearly does not have her finger on the pulse of Americas psyche, much like, her predecessor !

Or … The Pre-Election Polls … !?!

… as the polls showed leanings towards a Clinton win, pretty much, up to polling day, especially after the FBI suddenly dropped their investigation into her emails …. yet AGAIN … YAWN …. !!!!!

… only for it to be, suddenly changed … ???

… by the end of the night.

A shift, which allies itself to the comment that was made by one of the pundits, who stated that polling may now become obsolete, because it had become clear that what many people said, may not quite have been reflective of their REAL FEELINGS, about Donald Trump.

Forked-tongue for dinner anyone … ???

It really has been laughable, how the apparent, ” Liberals ” … which, may well become a name synonymous with, covert racists, continued to try to explain how this is … NOT … middle America !

Whatever they or that … is … ???

According to them, it’s working class, ” Urban “, country folk, who have been swayed by Mr. Trumps message, indeed, this may well be true, but something tells me that more … Again, ” Apparently “, moderate thinkers, of ALL colours, ended up feeling as though Donald was their only hope, well …

The Empire may well have just … Struck Back … !!!!!

…. in ways that they, may not be able to conceptualise, or recognise, as time goes by, but, for now, there is a massive part of Americas’ Electorate, who are quite happy to see, a man labelled as a .. Bigot, Sexist, Groper, and, Highly Volatile individual, take the reins of power for the Western, Free World …

Hmmmm … is this 2016 or 1916 ???

Well, either way, things have changed, but remain the same, the name Trump, will now not only be synonymous with Plazas, Hotels & Skyscrapers, but with Whitehouse papers, and deeds now …..

Scared anyone … ???

Well, i’ve seen people now talk all sorts of things in just a couple of days, the first one, conveniently being, 9/11 2016 …….

Do any of you believe in … Coincidence ???

Anyway, conspiracy theories aside, could the vote have been rigged ???

Well, Donald did warn everyone, but he just didn’t say, that, it may well have long since been rigged for HIM … !!!!!

Anywho’ … moving on, NAACP members were spoken to, white collar workers, Evangelists and countless others, from senior, former FBI people, to, Latinos, who seemed quite happy to have got one of them in congress ….

Small steps eh, but realistically, beyond the public, who clearly, in many cases, lied to the pollsters, about who they were REALLY, gonna vote for !

There were, other, curve balls thrown into the mix, from a massive reduction, apparently, in black voter turnout, to the composition of who voted for who …..

Well, amazingly …..

AGAIN …..

Apparently, lots of white women voted for Donald, as did white males, however, the younger whites, and of course, sons and daughters of immigrants, seemed less inclined to fall in line with Mr. Trump.

Statistics that should not shock, but, should be taken note of …. The idea that, only rednecks from the urban areas of America are Trumps supporters, have now been scuppered, once and for all.

In America now, it must be quite an interesting environment to be in, as one of the panelists proved, when asked who she voted for, there will, i’m sure, be many who will never show that their allegiance was to this, much maligned man, who actually, when you compare him to say Palin or McCain, is probably, on par with, if, not so bad right … ???

Well, I like Trump, and am glad he has won, however, NOT, for the reasons you might think though, I like the fact that he can be labelled as things without reservation, as opposed to past Presidents, who like, Nixon & Clinton, were deemed to be squeaky clean, until found out, and proven otherwise, indeed, where’s the dirt on BO ?!?

Well, I guess his initials are where that lies …. Ha Ha ….

… and …

What of Jay & Queen Bey, and even Mary J … will they have been singing and rapping for Mrs. Clinton last night eh … ???

Probably not, but one thing they’ll be remembered for, is their support for The LOSER … that she is … !!!!!!

….. whose name will now go down as, TWICE, trying but failing, to secure a place alongside Bills’ name, in the list of US Presidents.

So, do Black Lives Matter now ?!?

… or, have they now been proven, in the majority of cases to be clowns, who continue to be CLOWNED !!!!

and prove themselves to be, complicit with, providing a shield for what AMERICA, REALLY IS …. A country that, actually, has NO … African Americans, they disgrace the name Africa, by placing America next to it … and that;s my view.

Much like these terms, Afro-Caribbean, etcetera etcetera, the coon fest, has reached new heights, it would seem, in 2016 …..

Give them some, small piece of status, fame, money, and a place alongside high profile whites, and their African …. becomes redundant, seemingly, very quickly …..

Colin Kaepernick’ has brought this subject to the fore, as has this election, in terms of …. who the, lets’ say, black people are…. who have no shame in supporting the system that now has given them, in some cases, some very nice chains, to inscribe their names upon, like good little slaves …..

Yeah I said it, fuck it, what they gonna do, call Trump to sort me out … !?!

Good Luck with THAT … !!!!!!

They are all over the place, from Facebook to social media platforms all over the internet, and, further afield ……

So, who will ACTUALLY, leave America now, and who will stay eh … ???

I’m sure a good few were joking, but, to think that famous people are claiming to be so incensed, by the idea of being in an America run by Trump, that they will go to Spain, Canada and elsewhere ….. is quite laughable ….. !!!

So, Obamas’ America, and the America that most have grown up in, benefited from, and shown love for, wasn’t so bad then ….. ?!?!?

YET …..

It’s the SAME AMERICA, that has produced a Trump President in 2016, once again …. NOT …. 1916, but 2016 …. ?!?

The Hypocrites are gonna get found out now, the cash cow that fed them, is now, all of a sudden, in trouble ???

The double standards, and, two faced nature of quite a number of American people, can no longer be seen as people complaining for … NO REASON …

Names like Giulianii, will now return to mainstream politics, and positions of considerable influence, the same Mayor Giuliani, who faced no such backlash from Celebs’, when it came to policies he implemented, that essentially, would appear to be ones, that his pal, Donald, would stand by, as being effective and positive policies, in terms of New Yorks’ and Americas’, National security …..

Hmmmm …..

Well, today i’ve read and seen stories about, physical and, verbal abuse, from college students to elderly white Americans, who are doing nothing more than releasing, that which we all have been made to believe, has been diminished in the White, American Psyche …..

Errrr …. WRONG …. !!!

As the saying goes, if you’re on a long straight road, and you get off your bus, when it no longer is in view, does it just disappear, well, this ain’t Hollywood, so, NO … Mo’ Fo’s ….. NO ….. !!!

The Co-insequential sequence of events should not be disconnected to England and Brexit, both have bred changes of leader, and both have merely reminded, the wise heads among us, of the facts, while the rest, who were walking around feeling good, because their delusions fed them ideals of equality, are now crying FOUL, when there is NO …. Foghorn Leghorn in view ….. !!!!!

If you wanted change, maybe you should of made some cash, so that you’d have some now, rather than buying the ….

Oh, the worlds moving forward, because Obama gained power, and promised some ….

Well, they’ve got some now !!!!!

and before people start jumping on Baracks’ back,

He … DIDN’T ….

…. actually say, when the change would come, but now it has, well, it’s time to take a stance, and make sure you stand alongside those, who TRULY, have your back, before you face the type of racism, or, economic woes, that will NOT BE ….

…. something that the… ” Illuminati ” … whatever …. !!!!

…. or, as I now prefer, Hierarchy of Donald and his buddies, will be suffering, due to, not only the colour, and abundance of their money, but also, it would seem now, because of the colour of their skin …..

and hence, for the rest of us ….

It’s clear that now, and for the next few ….

The Fun Times … Begin ………………………… !!!!!

“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

Virge.
