Wait… Pokemon Go Hasn’t Been Released in Japan Yet?!?!?

Wait… Pokemon Go Hasn’t Been Released in Japan Yet?!?!?

You can’t go anywhere, or read anything without someone mentioning Pokemon Go and trying to catch Pikachu.

This craze has taken over and is at a level that people are getting robbed at meetups, and causing accidents.

2-weeks after its release in the U.S. the numbers are insane; 30 million downloads and $35 million in revenue. In that timeframe Nintendo‘s value doubled that’s without a release in Japan yet!

SuperMario

As of right now Niantic (the game-maker) announced they have delayed the Japan launch, due to an email link discussing the launch plans. Whenever Niantic decides to release Pokemon Go in Japan, I hope their servers are ready for the onslaught of users.

And with all that energy, I can only wonder what will be the next fad to blow up.

As always….

When Will Marco Rubio Actually Win?

It’s time for Rubio to step his game up!

When will Marco Rubio start living up to the media and pundits expectations and actually give Donald Trump a run for his money?

To be honest, when will he start living up to his own team’s expectations. The Washington Post reported that Rubio’s team had a strategy of “3-2-1”; coming in 3rd in Iowa, 2nd in New Hampshire, and 1st in South Carolina.

The only problem, Trump mania!

I shouldn’t give Trump ALL the credit, Rubio hasn’t helped his cause stumbling in debates and coming off as the manufactured candidate.

Time is running out for Rubio and with Trump’s victory in Nevada, he has to be feeling the pressure. And we know what happens when he feels the pressure…..

SMH, Rubio has to get it together soon or else he will be on the sidelines with his old mentor Jeb Bush.

Stacey Dash Hired by Fox News as a Contributor

Congrats to Stacey Dash!?!?

By now it’s old news that the ‘Clueless‘ star is a small-government Conservative.  During the 2012 Presidential Election Dash openly supported and campaigned for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  When Dash tweeted her support for Romney her twitter account was hammered with harsh comments that at times was over the line.

Here is the press release from Fox News:

Most recently, Dash sparked controversy during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Twitter account and subsequently endured heavy criticism for supporting a conservative nominee.  Since the election, Dash has continued to utilize her unique positioning as a well-known actress to voice her opinions and encourage discussion on topics ranging from pop culture to national news and politics across all media platforms.

In addition to her cultural and political activism, Dash leads a notable acting career that has spanned more than 20 years.  She has appeared in numerous films and television series, including her breakout role as “Dionne” in the 1995 hit movie “Clueless,” as well as roles in “Renaissance Man,” “Mo’ Money,” and “View from the Top,” among others.

Does “cultural’ mean Black?

Hopefully, for her this is not some stunt for attention, and they (Fox News) appreciate what she can offer their broadcast. In all honesty I can’t see this being a grab for attention, I mean no disrespect to Stacey Dash but she hasn’t done much since ‘Clueless’…

Ok, I will give her credit for ‘Mo Money,’ she was fine in that joint!

Tim Geithner and Jon Stewart Square Off….

Over the past couple of weeks former Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner has been doing the round on the talk-show circuit promoting his new book, ‘Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises’.

With this book Geithner attempts to set the record straight on why the bailout was necessary and without it, the financial crises would have been much worse.

The bailout of the financial industry is one of those topics that rub both Conservatives and Liberals the wrong way and has earned Geithner critics on both sides of the aisle.  Geithner to his credit does not run from his critics and strongly believes that he and the Obama Administration did everything within their power to stave off financial disaster.

In one of the better interviews Geithner participated in was on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ (5/20).  In a 42-minute interview that had some light moments, Geithner and Stewart went back and forth on conveying their point of views.

For Geithner, this discussion will always be difficult as populous opinion just sees the bailout as “Big Banks” being saved while “Joe Public” was left to fail and foreclosed on.  In a funny but honest moment Geithner admits to understanding why people are mad, but at the same time saying it was still necessary…

“Because we did this set of frankly pretty offensive, seemingly unfair set of things, we have an economy that is, again terrible, hard, a lot of challenges, but much, much better, than what it would have been.”

Stewart in great fashion stayed on message, his belief is that we would have been better off if the government bailed out the people and focused on saving people from foreclosure on their homes.   That would have led to the people having more money to spend and keep the economy going.

“Economies are perception.  So your reality of, but we avoided a depression, doesn’t fit the reality of people’s perception that they haven’t avoided their own personal depression…”

The best part of this conversation is that both men were open to listening to each other’s viewpoint.

Chris Christie Wins BIG in New Jersey

h_cover_0121

The people of Jersey spoke and they spoke in a BIG way as Chris Christie was re-elected as Governor of New Jersey.

Christie a Republican won a whopping 60% of the vote in New Jersey a Blue state, and he was able to do this even though the people in New Jersey disagree with their governor on some major issues like raising minimum wage.  Also in a head-to-head battle New Jersey would back Hilary Clinton for president.

But there will be plenty of time to look at a possible Christie versus Clinton presidential campaign.  Until then, lets look at the road to 2016 for Christie and the GOP.

It’s time for the extreme right-wing of the GOP to step aside and let Conservatives like Chris Christie shine.  Don’t worry about him hugging President Obama, worry about results.  GOP candidates do not have to be more Conservative, that is a losing formula these days and it’s dragging down the Republican party.  On MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt (former McCain Campaign strategist) talked what’s next for Christie and he mentioned a professional speech writer.  IMO, that’s the last thing he needs, the GOP needs an injection of excitement not another canned candidate.

Can Chris Christie avoid the pressure of being a canned candidate and the pull of the extreme right?

Miley Cyrus with the Roots and Jimmy Fallon performing ‘We Can’t Stop’

Say what you want about Miley Cyrus and her twerking ass, but she has consistently kept her name in the spotlight. And as the saying goes,

“There is no such thing as bad press.”

Miley has gone from shocking everyone with her performance at MTV’s VMAs, consistently having pics of her sticking her tongue out in entertainment magazines, to giving ‘Saturday Night Live‘ 4.5 million viewers while hosting and being the musical guest this past Saturday.

And since her SNL appearance she has made her rounds on the talk show circuit which include a visit to Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Late Night’ show. Here’s a video version of Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ with help from The Roots and Jimmy Fallon…

So if y’all were looking for Miley to go away, it’s not happening!

WTF/WTH Wednesdays – Coolout Anthony Weiner….

I was a huge supporter/fan of Anthony Weiner before his setting scandal, and even then I was willing to give him a fresh start with his bid to become the next mayor of New York City. I mean we all make mistakes, so I was open to hear what he had to say and what his platform would be about.

And then more sexting nonsense was discovered, at that point I was done and so should have Weiner’s campaign. Instead he decided to continue to stay in the race and not be forced out.

If Weiner believes he still has a shot, I hope yelling at voters is not part of a strategy he believes is a winner…

Smh, the funny thing is that it was his fiery, confrontational style that made Weiner cool with many Democrats/Progressives.

Except, back then he was yelling at Republican congressmen and not potential voters.
