Oversight is an everyday food...

Whew!

Sorry chil’ren, but a bitch got busy yesterday and then my ass lapsed into a quizzical about life and purposeless people and…well, a bitch got busy.

Save the date…
A certain President Scooter B. is expected to address the masses Wednesday on his revised war plan. Y’all know a bitch never misses a presidential address (wink) so anticipate a recap following the announcement of the already leaked revisional thang.

Moving forward…

A bitch is preparing to get my blog on at the NAPW Summit next week. I’m looking forward to learning a lot and sharing what I learn with y’all. Plus there is the added benefit of finally getting to meet some people I’ve admired for ever and a day.

Fantabulous!

National Advocates for Pregnant Women works to secure the human and civil rights, health and welfare of all women, focusing particularly on pregnant and parenting women, and those who are most vulnerable - low income women, women of color, and drug-using women.

As someone who mentors and teaches pregnant and parenting women, I’m thrilled to know that NAPW is out there doing the work that they do. I’m also grateful for the challenge issued by NAPW to re-think what I'm doing and work to build a better system.

See y’all in Atlanta next week!

Anyhoo…

A bitch caught Meet the Press last Sunday and it was a classic! Senator Biden (D-DE) went toe to toe with Senator Graham (R-SC) over what the hell needs to be done in Iraq.

If you missed it a bitch recommends it highly…four out of five afros on the bitch review scale…a must see.

Why?

Because this was the kind of debate that should have happened before Congress authorized Scooter B. to go to war. Shit, Senator Graham even mentioned the Powell Doctrine!

Mercy!

Above and beyond that, they also brought up pesky shit like what happens when we leave…what are the consequences of a failed war in Iraq…shit like that.

A bitch has to admit that some of this post mid-term election shit is pissing me the hell off!

What the hell are you talking about, Shark-fu?

A bitch is glad you asked chil’ren!

Congress is charged with the responsibility of oversight. Repeat that word for me would you.

Oversight.

Congress does get a pass because the Head Motherfucker in Charge (HMIC) happens to be from the same party as the majority. Congress represents the people…the masses…this bitch and my motherfucking interests.

So, this bitch isn't handing out gold star stickers because all of the sudden someone read the motherfucking job description and said… “Hey y’all, maybe we should question what the fuck this motherfucker intends to do and how much money it’s going to cost and where the fuck that money is really going!?!”

That shit is way overdue!

And this bitch has had is up to here…mmmhmmm, already tired as hell…with the press and their overwhelming concern that oversight equals gridlock.

Oversight is a good thing…it’s what has been missing…shit, a bitch can’t wait to find out where the hemorrhage is and stitch that motherfucker up!

Average people have to present a business plan with details and justifications before they get a small business loan...bitch happens to think our government should be required to rustle up some rational with all of that pork.

Pause.

Come to think of it, pork is a sometimes food anyway!

Oversight?

Well, oversight is like the banana of government policy…

I absolutely agree. Oversight is like the oxygen of good government. It can't survive without it.
