As the month of March is in progress, so is Women’s History Month. And yes, March Madness is in effect, as well as the turning point of the seasons from Winter to Spring. Not exactly yet. And oh, for us every Sunday church buffs, we got lent. Nothing but 40 days and 40 nights until Good Friday and Easter. Oh again, what is up with Viacom killing their channels on DirecTV/AT&T and why is 45 tripping on Twitter like always. And racism? And sexism? Let’s go in. I’m scratching my head again!

Who’s giving up stuff for Lent? Like really?

For all the Women that really had to ask: why are YOU asking about International Men’s Day?!!! Now you know how the Men feel asking on your International Women’s Day!

Is it really Spring time yet? Or is it still Winter Extension?

Anyone in the United Methodist Church fighting back in the ongoing decision of the “general” vote?

Next question: Can all the Schools, specifically High Schools really talk about Prostate/Breast Cancer? I don’t see none of that.

So Milwaukee: we got the 2020 DNC Convention coming here next summer. By now, you should probably received a lot of information about how to work and volunteer. And plug your business. Now is the time to talk about Milwaukee to the world. Agree?

The American Legion this month turned the century mark! 100 years old of supporting Veterans and their Families! My late father was an American Legion Member here in Wisconsin. As well a few other African-Americans that previously served during wartime. And yes, countless other Veterans, and current Military. But the million dollar question is: what will the American Legion do to reach out to the next 100 years? Even to the younger vets?

Whenever I hear about the stories about the Freemasons doing good work and service through stories (like the Black Fraternities, Churches, Alumni Associations), it’s a good feeling. But recently here in Milwaukee, I read the Community Journal that the long standing fraternity since 1717 (Black Members came later since 1775) has had seen cracks in the wall: In terms of trying to get to the younger folks to join up. My question to the Freemasons, Shriners, Scottish Rites, Elks, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and others: what are you really doing to reach young men whom are you trying to get, and what are YOU doing to see what they are into?….And for the record, no one asked me about the Masons! And I’m my 40’s. But I know…….if I want to be one I have to ask one.

For all the Conservative types hating on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you are making her famous. You are giving her good press, but why do you bring the hate? Y ‘all are making her rich! And the same with Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and countless others that want to shake up the House of Representatives and also 45’s unkindly butt.

For the Women readers of the Spot: Will you continue to celebrate Women’s History everyday, or will March 8th or the whole month of March is just the only time to appreciate? Not trying to stir the pot, but just asking. I’m sampling that thing from Black History Month.

Did Tyler Perry really sent Madea out with a bang with the funeral movie?

Are the Milwaukee Bucks despite of the record, are making a case for a Playoff Push? Keep in mind: they were once a basement team that had poor records that nobody cared! Oh, just a surprise: Central Division Champs!

CALLOUT: VIACOM!!!!! You are tripping! What is up with the cancellation of your channels via AT&T/DirecTV?!!! If this keeps up more, there will be a consequence like dialing 888-250-5557. And after all this, what’s next? Sling? Hulu? YouTube Red? And now DirecTV would like to lower the bills with retaining the channels? My other question is, why don’t they let those who has been a customer more than 10 years to get a free reduction of their billings PER MONTH?

Hey, how about those Wisconsin Badgers Women’s Hockey team, winning the Natty? Or the Ship? Or their National Championship? Hmm..

So the Green Bay Packers lost Nick Perry, Randall Cobb and yes Clay Matthews to the off season. What will the rebuilding of the team contribute to the powerhouse overall for the 2019-20 season, which also is the 100th Anniversary of the Packers Organization and the 100th Season of the NFL?

So the GOP Lame Duck Laws in Wisconsin got blocked! HA! Why the tripping, GOP Wisconsin Republicans?

CALLOUT: For the Men’s BB March Madness, show of hands: who does NOT want to see Duke winning the tournament? They have won enough. (and had the “illegal W” against Wisconsin years back) #AnybodyButDuke

Does the BMCR or all Black Methodists for Church Renewal really need to agitate against the concerns of the current status of the United Methodist Church? Like the predecessors did over 50 years ago? Read about how they rejected a thing called TOKENISM!

Next month in April, after Easter, Mortal Kombat 11 is coming. Who’s buying? And yes, the Nintendo Switch is included!

Many folks still think Michael Jackson did the job by sleeping with young boys?!

I suppose that R. Kelly after the Gayle King interview is getting the massacred treatment?

In Milwaukee, there is an event called “Girls Day at City Hall” that takes place every March. So I need to ask ALL the Men in the Common Council, Milwaukee County, and the State of Wisconsin, is there a plan to have a day for the Boys in Public Service? Gotta to be fair! Boys need to see and do examples of civil service and be recognized in November for International Men’s Day!

Is there a specific reason why various white folks who go on to black social media platforms or black social media posts to get triggered?

Why is it so hard for the older generation of Church goers who talk about the future, in the reality of not talking to the young folks of what they want to see CURRENTLY in church?

HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE: So through the Milwaukee grapevine that the traditional before the 4th of July Fireworks on the 3rd might not happen this year and U.S. Bank declared last year in 2018 that it would be their last. Where was the warning on this? And also, which well known backer organization in the state that would STEP UP and actually pay up $350,000 annually to get the traditional thing going? Harley-Davidson? Kohl’s? Northwestern Mutual? American Family Insurance? Catholic Knights? Somebody step up!

Speaking of this, As of March 19th, 2019: International Men’s Day was 4 months ago. And also it will be on a Tuesday 8 months from now on the same Tuesday date. MEN and I mean MEN, DUDES, GUYS, BROTHERS in all, what will be your sole purpose of making THIS International Men’s Day be more meaningful and recognizable?! Don’t act like you’ll forget!

Many need to really ask: is being apart of an organization a networking need or a recognizable want?

Next question: Will the Brewers make a push to be potential Dark Horses Part 2 for the 2019 Season?

How is it exactly that many ask about jobs, but when looking, they get depleted after the search is done?

Speaking of newer M rated Video Games, will Wolfenstein: Youngblood really making a new impact on the Nintendo Switch? Wait until July.

So is the movie “US” by Jordan Peele is really stepping up to be a real horror film?

Every March 29th is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, in which is a day that is set aside for those who fought, served and/or died in uniform. After all of this: why did 45 had to sign it into law before Obama? Barack should have signed it first. And second with all the Honor Flights for the Vietnam Veterans that are taking place, where’s the love of them that were welcomed back over 50 years ago?!! And my late father who served recalled his viewpoints very well!

Oh yes, A black father stands up! What about this? Don’t trip!

And the last thing on the list: Cardi B just revealed that back in her stripping days, she used to rob and drugged men for the green backs in the clubs at 19 years old. Question….does that constitute for rape? Let’s be honest, if this was on the female angle, everyone would be on point in all. BUT…..since this was about men getting almost raped by a then 19 year old Stripper, it seems laughable. Women on the other hand would be asking “what if this was your daughters?” Now for this: Ladies what if this was your Sons, Brothers, Nephews, Grandsons, etc?!! Speak on that!

More to come.
