So is Hillary running for Prez or not?

There’s a local radio host here in Nashville who has prophetically projected that Hillary Clinton will jump into the race for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Obviously, at this time she hasn’t and since a few of the states’ deadlines for submitting your official entry has passed, she’ll have an interesting road ahead if she’s going to secure the nomination.

One thing working in her favor is that all of the current nominees basically use defeating President Trump as their top priority. My reaction is this: OK, so what will you do the next day? To make it more clear, it’s like your spouse has been making popcorn for the family for the last few months and one day you tell them, “We need someone else to make better popcorn.”

Your kids react, “Oh, ok. Well, why should you be the one to do this?”

You respond, “Your mom isn’t fit and my top priority is to stop her from making popcorn.”

Kids: “What will you do different?”

You: “Let me be clear. Your mom is the worst popcorn maker in history. It’s time for her to go.”

Child 1: “Yes! She’s brought popcorn back 20 years and we need to move forward! She hates yellow kernels, too.”

Child 2: “Hates yellow kernels? When has she ever said anything like that?”

You: “She’s spreading popcorn phobia, and she’s a white popcorn supremacist. If you choose me, I will defeat your Mom. We cannot let her take away the popcorn’s right to choose.”

Child 1: “Kernels aren’t even popcorn anyway.”

Child 2: “I believe once the kernel is in the pot, it’s popcorn.”

You: “You don’t have a pot, so your opinion doesn’t matter.”

You see what I mean? OK, that sort of went in a direction I hadn’t planned but the whole point of this post is that the Democratic Party is fertile soil for a hero to come in and save the day. If it’s not Hillary, I could also see the party uniting around Michelle Obama (recent Grammy winner, btw). I think Michelle’s smart enough to stay out of politics, but Hillary has a bone to pick with Trump. And Bernie, for that matter. My final thoughts, “Why can’t we just pop some popcorn and enjoy it’s buttery goodness?”

And the Grammy goes to… Michelle Obama?

My thoughts keep coming back to the recent Grammy Awards that aired live Sunday night. I’ll preface this post by saying that I absolutely love music. I was pretty pumped to celebrate the great music from 2019, because there was a lot of it! The show was hosted by ultra-feminist Alecia Keys and, well, she said one thing I agreed with… music is a language we all can understand (or something similar to that). Outside of that, I was so turned off by the political overtones, the controversies, etc… so the show just isn’t sitting well in my memory. 

Before writing this post, I read the entire list of nominees and winners for the entire show. I was surprised to see a former First Lady on the list… Michelle Obama! She won for Best Spoken Word Album. 

The day after the Awards show, I thought about who WAS there, and who WASN’T there… wondering, “Where was Kanye West?” From the research I did on the nomination process, I think the artists/management submit their work for possible inclusion as a nominee in any of the categories, so it’s entirely possible that Kanye just didn’t care to be part of the show at all. It’s not like he has a good relationship with the Grammy’s anyway. But if that’s not the case, though, let’s say he DID want to be part of the show, wouldn’t they want to include him after his very successful launch of “Jesus Is King”? Not to even mention or highlight this in the show seems a bit shady and quite possibly very much on purpose. It goes back to the agenda from the Hollywood elite, or the liberal media, or progressive celebrities, however you want to categorize them… they’re all about inclusion except for those who disagree with them. For instance, where was NF? He has 2 albums in the top hundred of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums of 2019

So much for celebrating diverse music! 

Other notable artists who had a huge year in 2019 include Imagine Dragons, Luke Combs, Lauren Daigle, Ava Max, and Panic! at the Disco, all who were nowhere to be found on Grammy night. Something’s up with this so if you know more about it than I do, please comment below… 

Thanks for stopping by!
