F*ck R. Kelly!

by d. daly on January 5, 2019

I haven’t seen the R. Kelly docementray, but I don’t think it’s even necessary to see it to understand just how troubled that dude it. I actually never really rocked with him to begin with, even before all this “news” on his behavior. I’ve always thought the whole Aalliyah situation smelled foul, and I wasn’t even an adult back then. Before I commence to dragging this scumbag, I’ll just put it out there; I’m pretty nasty (ask about me). But when I’m disgusted by someone… Watch out! You know that fucker is TRASH!!! 

I’ve never seen the footage of him pissing on that young girl and I didn’t need to, to know that he is a sick, sad man. I was never able to get into his music either, because something about him just rubbed me the wrong way. I’ll admit that one or two of his songs have probably made their way onto one or two of my love-makin’ mix tapes/CDs during my misguided youth, but that’s just because that’s what the ladies wanted to hear. And that was back when I was still building my sexual credit, so I just did whatever was required to boost my score. Oh, the things I’ve done. 

I’ll also admit that I’ve even seen him live in concert, once. But to be clear, it was an invite in one of those executive box suites, so I wasn’t in any danger of getting peed on by accident. I’ve said all that to say that I didn’t actually spend my money to see this clown, therefore I was not directly patronizing him. And I’ve said all that in an effort to make me seem like a better person. I’m not. Back to the concert. It was a bit of an older crowd and he seemed slightly, but noticably uninspired. It was fairly recent so maybe it was due to his old age, but more than likely it was due to the crowd’s old age. 

Now on to the crux of the matter; aside from being a filthy person, R. Kelly is a predator of the most nefarious kind. Everyone pretty much agrees that sexually assaulting a very young person is bad. But Kellls openly preyed on girls that were still under legal age, but old enough for onlookers to give him a pass. Let me break it down for you folks, especially those in the camp of “those girls were, fast, loose and knew what they were doing.” There is a reason why sex with a minor is considered statutory rape. Kids (yes, kids) that age do not know what they’re doing, despite how wise they think they may be. They’re not. They are called young and dumb for a reason. They are also easy to manipulate and violate. It’s the adult’s responsibility to redirect and guide these children, no matter how fast, loose or fine. I understand how the lines could get blurred between a 18 and 16 year old, but R. Kelly has been a grown ass man for as long as I’ve known him. 

Furthermore, to put the blame on the victims, is both stupid and stupid. Yes, that stupid. I’m sure in some, if not most, of those cases, those girls have probably been mishandled in the past by adult males that should have been protecting and nurturing them instead of assaulting and damaging them. I’ve developed close and deep relationships with many women that have confided in me and shared some of the horrors that uncles, cousins, brothers and even fathers have put then through and it infuriates me to no end. That’s who R. Kelly is. He’s that guy. And that guy fucking sucks!

2016 Election: I Saw It Coming

by d. daly on November 9, 2016

tropical-storm-is-coming
I haven’t said a word about this general election because I don’t like to eat my own. Last night I observed the media as they watched in disbelief at what was happening. It was as if that was the first time that they actually took the time consider this outcome. And that is what played a major role in it. The left-leaning media has been taunting this man (and his fiercely loyal base) for months, basically gloating in advance at his defeat, and in turn, fueled the fire to his victory.

While I didn’t know the outcome of this election in advance for, there were three things that hinted towards Trump seizing the presidency and allowed me some time to prepare for the moment. I’ll list these three signs in order from the least to most telling.

The first giveaway that the Democrats had given the election away was when they elected Hillary as their candidate, despite the type of election this was. I would’ve loved to see the first woman president as much as the next guy or gal, but the reality of how bad she was as a candidate obviously did not become clear until last night.

The second most telling sign that Trump would win was Professor Allan Lichtman, who has successfully predicted every election since 1984. While he stated that this was the hardest election to predict, he had Trump as the winner based on his formula (this guy has it down). And while this should have been the clearest sign that Trump would win, there was one guy that I trust slightly more than this professor’s formula.

Which brings me to the most telling sign, that basically cemented a Trump presidency before anyone could even see it coming. When Kanye West announced his run for president in 2020. Yeah, I said it! I At the very least, he knew that the Dems wouldn’t hold on to the office and at best, he knew that Trump would lower the bar, to hold the highest office in the land, so low, that even he would have a shot. As Kanye West has eloquently put it, “Kanye West is a genius!”

Today Is The Greatest

Happy new year! Yes, it is June and yes, it has been that long. Recently I was working late at the office doing something I should have done earlier that day and I came up with a saying. But before I go into what I told my self on that late and fate-filled work night, I would […]

Gun Tie: kinda like “gun shy,” but nothing like it

Have ever had experienced a series of events, however small, strung together in succession, in pretty close proximity to one another, and have them collectively combine to create a creepily coincidental moment that you just have to share, but don’t have anyone with you to share it with? No? Well, you simply must. But in […]

twenty fourteen

If you think last year went by faster than the previous, you’re right. I’ve come to the humble realization that, the older you get, the faster years go by. No studies have shown this statement to be true, but I know this information as fact. This knowledge does not come as a surprise, but it […]

What Do You Call A Post Inspired by Aziz Ansari and The Polar Express?

Beats the hell outta this Dick, but I just watched “Aziz Ansari: Buried Alive” and “The Polar Express”, in that order, yesterday and today, respectively, alone and with my family, also respectively in that order. I know. That previous sentence could have been constructed with more care and craftsmanship, but I like it just the […]

Race Awakening

I’ve remained fairly quiet during the whole Trayvon Martin situation. I remember briefly showing public support last year by putting up a picture of myself in a hoodie as my Facebook profile pic. And that’s about as far as that went for me. Now, don’t get me wrong; I’m not stating these facts because they […]

My Favorite Radiohead Songs By Album
(and how they became my fave band)

I’ve been a Radiohead fan since high school and it happened completely by accident. My brother had a mostly reggae/dancehall mix tape that I was listening to one night alone in my bedroom. I had my headphones plugged into my stereo player jammin’ away at the latest dancehall tunes, when out of nowhere and totally […]

In The Interest of Time:

I’ll Be Brief

The number of years between the ages of ten and twenty are equal to the number of years between twenty and thirty, only on paper. Of this, I am mostly certain. In the  interest of  time; it is neither simple nor compounding. While it is far more beneficial to the investor when it is in […]
