Awww, it's so cute that Tyler Perry has snatched the role of "Alex Cross" from Idris Elba in the revamping of the franchised based on James Patterson's novels of the same name. It's so funny listening to the producer of the upcoming film set to start filming in June said that Perry as:
Tyler Perry is a phenomenon. Tyler Perry is one of the most significant entertainers in all of media. He is a huge cross-media talent and presence — and he’s a terrific actor whose range is going to be shown here. You’re going to see Tyler Perry like you haven’t seen him. He’s 6’5″, he is a linebacker. He is an awesome physical presence and is just going to tear it apart here. It’s an intense, dramatic role.I just want to snicker and then go back to ignoring this film franchise as before (Hell I haven't even seen "Kiss the Girls" so you know...). However, it's been a topic of the black blogosphere all week long so I had to discuss it.
The mandatory insurance coverage portion of the Americans for Affordable Healthcare Act was found unconstitutional in the U.S. District Court in Pensacola by (conservative and anti-healthcare funded) Judge Roger Vinson. Vinson attempted to invalidate the entire law basing on the way the law was written and passed. This the suit that was orchestrated by 22 states filed against the law. Another attempt by the classist-complexed (majority white) faction of T.E.A. Twats attempting to further fuckery in our nation...
The GOP leaders of the Alabama Legislature has decided to limit access of the State House claiming the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords as a reason. The Alabama Democrats responded to the antics of the GOP shutting the door on process to the people and forcing them to backtrack on their stance. It seems to me there is some funny business going on with this. I'm more ashamed of how Senator Pro Tem Del Marsh co-signs on this fuckery considering I know him personally. Wise move by the ADP to attack, but they still have disorder in their own house before they are reputable party and organization again. However, that's politicians for ya, they say what they are going do and then the do the exact opposite... (h/t to Left in Alabama)
Oh yeah, the wintry mix of rain/sleet/snow caused chaos during rush hour in Birmingham and Central Alabama, but primarily Birmingham on Thursday. This weather is the normal for this part of the South, so my advice to all officials in these major cities, "BUY SOME DAMN SNOW EQUIPMENT, NOW!!!!"
That's this week in review. I'll be back with the more posts soon.
