Marvin Gaye's Trouble Man - The RESULT of What's Going On
We're ready to wrap up our podcast series, going on out on the highest note possible, covering Marvin Gaye's project Trouble Man. In short, Trouble Man is the RESULT of the creative flood gates that had just opened up for Marvin as he worked on his project What's Going On. Make no mistake there is NO disconnect between the two projects being in sequence to each other. This episode is Part 1 of 2 giving the breakdown of how Marvin's journey through his career brought him to the point of being able to give us this project.
No More Excuses - Flexing our voting muscle: District Attorneys & Judges, did you know YOU have the voting say so?
No More Excuses - Let's Discuss flexing our voting muscle: District Attorneys & Judges, did you know YOU have the say so?
I watched Andre Hill's Memorial Service today and it was words from Reverend Al Sharpton: NO MORE EXCUSES, that REALLY turned on a light bulb for me, reinforcing a very empowering first step I already took in November 2020 to flex a bit of my voting muscle; giving MY SAY SO on whether the judges that preside in my county meet MY expectations for continuing to do that job.
Tonight, upon hearing the "fake news" that the white officer in Kenosha was not an attempted murderer...I did a simple google: "do people vote for district attorneys?" The answer, YES. You get the right to vote district attorneys in to 4 year terms, and you give that vote during the midterm elections that usually occur in May. Every year at least 1/3 of DAs are up for re-election. This May let's QUIT doing like I've miseducated-ly done, every time I receive an election ballot outside of the 4 year presidential elections, and this is to just toss it aside.
NO MORE OF ACCEPTING THEIR EXCUSES to try to deny, cover up and impede JUSTICE from being exercised. It's time for us to all "wake the f up because it's been too long" as Ms. Badu would say, and flex our voting muscle to OUST each and every one of these corrupt District Attorneys that continue to be where the buck stops for our fellow man's JUSTICE to have an opportunity to be received.
