1Ima is a bit out of sorts this week ’cause when dey said the weed was legal in California I hitchhiked through the cold and all to get me a stash. But you know what Ima found out that the legal weed just ain’t the same as the weed we been used to. Somebody said they sanitize it! I don’t know if that is true or not, but I know the fun of it being illegal makes it less fun. Thank goodness Ima didn’t get stopped, ‘cause I put it everywhere there was a dent and then Killer told me that you wasn’t supposed to bring it across state lines.

Oprah Winfrey

Ima don’t think so. Oprah, Ima has to admit was fabulous on Sunday night. She looked great, dress and all, hair and all and her words were perfect. Mr. Weinstein must have crawled deeper under the rock he should live under from now own. She was so good that before the night was over calls were coming far and near for her to run for President.  Well, now perhaps the geeked up folks should talk to her former residents ‘bout that, Chicago residents that is. Ask anybody on the west side or south side and they will say,” not so fast.” We done had one Black-White president and we don’t need another one. Those of you who are now saying what you say Ima?  I didn’t make no mistake.  Remember the great speech at the Democratic Convention back in 1984 that propelled our first ”Black” president into the White House? What do we have to show for his eight years at 1600 Pennsylvania Street? Right!! What do we have to show for the many years Oprah lived here? Okay den!! Nuff sed!!!



Chris Kennedy

The Unsunny Times tried to downplay the importance and the truth that Chris Kennedy laid on the city last week when he said the Mare was responsible for the gentrification that is taking place on the west and south sides of the city. Well he’s right and he’s wrong. He’s right because Rahm has carried out the plan that was laid out for many years by other Mares. So, laying all the blame on Rahm is wrong. Ima is saying that when you see the other folk riding their bikes and walking the streets remember dey is safer than we are. Well, guess what the supposed ”frontrunner” was quiet as a church mouse ’cause he is getting support from the Mare and his Henchmen. We is between a rock and a hard place with the frontrunner and the worst Gubner we ever had.  But remember that we ain’t got a chance with the union folks and remember who got all of the union support? I’m just saying!! It’s a long way yet to March. We still got time to

Leverage our votes!! We can be the difference!!! Ask the new Senator from Alabama.

Donald Trump

Ima can’t believe that all of dis noise is being made saying that 45 is crazy!! Well…And… everybody with an ounce of good sense knew that!  Duh!!! And now dey say he ain’t fit to be president!! Duh Duh!! They say he repeats himself. Okay, dey say he don’t know what he’s talking about, yeah!! So, what’s dey complaining about? Did it really take a year to figure that he is crazy? Give me the list of those who just found this out and we can fill a lotta prison cells and make some money offa them instead of us!!
