Paul Wilson: The (Mid) Weak in Review — Tales of Two ‘Messiahs’

messiah13n-5-webTennessee Judge Changes Baby’s Name

A Nashville courtroom brings us baby-momma, Jaleesa Martin, represented by Stan Greenburg (Harley’s faux attorney), seeking a last name change for her 7 month old baby, Messiah. What started as a simple paternity and name change suit has turned into a cluster f**k after Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew stuck her pasty white nose in a little too deep, ordering a first name change for the baby as well.

Ballew, who serves the 4th Judicial District of Tennessee, ordered the boy’s name to be changed from Messiah DeShawn Martin to Martin DeShawn McCullough.

“It (the name Messiah) could put him at odds with a lot of people and at this point he has had no choice in what his name is,” Ballew said about her decision last week to replace Messiah with his mother’s surname.

“The word Messiah is a title and it’s a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ,” Ballew said.

The boy’s mother plans to appeal the order and will continue to call him Messiah.

“The judge’s decision was an unnecessary breach of a parents’ right to name their child what they please,” ACLU-Tennessee executive director Hedy Weinberg said, going on to call it “pretty outrageous,” especially when it wasn’t the issue being presented.

“In this instance, the judge is imposing her religious beliefs on a family who came before her rightfully so to handle a dispute and they focused on that dispute,” she said. “But the dispute in no way focused on the first name of the child.”

Norman Smith, who is chairman of the legislative body for Cocke County, said while he thought naming a child Messiah showed “a lack of respect for Christian people,” added  that Martin has “the right to name her baby whatever she wants.”

Your well-coiffed scribe wonders if Smith knows how many Hispanics name their son’s “Jesus” in honor of Christ?

a-boy-named-sueHere’s the money quote where Judge Ballew shows she’s clearly out of touch:

“It (the name Messiah) could put him at odds with a lot of people and at this point he has had no choice in what his name is.”

So she changes it to “Martin?”

When this 7 month old little bugger grows up and is loitering on the corner of 13th and MLK with his four best homies, Sha Nay Nay, Bon Qui Qui, Shabooty and Grapedrankisa, Martin’s going to get his ass whooped!

Scarred for life by a white, right wing, Christian Judge.

She might as well have named the boy Sue.

 

Alec Baldwin gets MSNBC Show

Bombastic, out of control liberal Alec Baldwin – who suffers from terminal oral diarrhea – is on the verge of getting his own talk show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup..

An anonymous source described as “a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming,” said the “30 Rock” star’s as-yet-untitled show is a done deal and would air Friday nights in the 10 p.m. eastern time slot. Since the show would air on Friday’s primetime lineup, Baldwin’s entrance to the network presumably  wouldn’t unseat any of its weeknight anchors.

I’ve seen Baldwin guest host once before and to say he’s as captivating on air as a piece of milk toast is an insult to milk toast. But let’s look at it from this angle.

Screen shot 2013-08-13 at 1.15.41 PMPaula Deen loses her show over her big mouth, Baldwin gets one for his.

Baldwin’s most recent outburst came after his wife was accused of tweeting during the funeral service for James Gandolfini.  Baldwin’s twitter account gets placed in gear before his brain is engaged, going off on a hostile rant, in which he repeatedly threatened to “fuck someone up, because he is a man of urbane wit and sophistication.”

He went on to refer to the reporter, who he apparently knew was gay, as a “toxic little queen,” then suggested he might enjoy having Baldwin’s foot up his ass.

Hypocritical much?

The only thing better was Baldwin’s 2007 voice mail message left for his then-11-year-old daughter, Ireland. When she didn’t answer he proceeded to tell her “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don’t have the brains or the decency of a human being.”

One last time I give you Paula Deen. Insert her name in place of Baldwin’s, would she be rewarded with a new show this week or losing one?

    Nice little racist rant.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Pigg, thanks for your comment, and since I’m assuming you’re talking about the baby name story, you’re off base a tad on the racist comment.

      The names listed came from a Google search of the top ghetto names. I didn’t name the kids names, baby momma, or rarely, baby daddy did. I can’t own that one; I’m not the one that made those names climb the list, so that doesn’t make me racist either.

      I actually stood up for the baby momma rights saying the Judge had stepped in it. I also stood up for the Hispanics who name their kids “Jesus” out of respect. So, I’m not a racist there either.

      But I do give you this from the Urban Dictionary, which explains a lot.

      RACIST; If you’re a white man, this is what you are. It doesn’t even matter if your wife is black and you have an adopted child from India, or how many black friends you have, somehow you’re going to end up being a racist according to how the media portrays the white man as “racist whities”.

      All of this is funny because the white man is the one that is stereotyped as being racist, which is hypocrisy at its best. It’s racist to assume that white men are racists.

  2. Libertarian says:

    “Red Rover, Red Rover, send ______ on over…….”

  3. paulwilsonkc says:

    Further, if some moron wants to claim using the term “ghetto names” is racist, Google the term “ghetto names”. The first 10 pages directly use the term “ghetto names” in the topic. Hard to call me racist for that. Over 7 million Google hits for that term as well as countless YouTubes by black girls discussing ghetto names.
    Sorry, CHarley, wrong again, sucks to be you.

  4. charles says:

    Italian families — including the Ciccone family of Detroit — have been naming their daughters Madonna for years and you don’t hear about the Vatican getting all flustered.

  5. Curt says:

    When this 7 month old little bugger grows up and is loitering on the corner of 13th and MLK with his four best homies, Sha Nay Nay, Bon Qui Qui, Shabooty and Grapedrankisa…

    To a reasonable person, this is objectionable. Making fun of black people, making fun of where they lived and what they are named. Why? Because they’re black.

    Or to put it another way, you are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don’t have the brains or the decency of a human being.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Curt, thanks for your comments. I’d like to offer some correction, if you’d allow. Your observation of me was inaccurate. You referred to me as, I think the words were, a rude, thoughtless little pig. You’re half right, but at 6′ 1 1/2″, I’m actually a fairly large pig. Also, I’ve tested out at a MENSA level IQ, so I do have the brains of a human being while my level or lack of decensy may indeed come in question at times, so I’ll give you that one.
      I simply pulled the names off one of the many Google Top Ten African American name sites. For the love of Pete; I didn’t make them up, they are on the top 50 list, how’s that making fun?
      If my black brother told me his kid was outside playing with John, Paul and George, is he racist for using popular names and he’s making fun of “whitey?”
      I was just having fun writing an opinion piece, maybe you and Harley should console each other and start a little club or something!
      Thanks, I appreciate your comments, regardless of whether I’m a small OR large pig.

  6. Super Dave says:

    I think a parent should have the right to name their child as they wish. I as well think a person has the right to change their name upon reaching age 18 if they hate the name given to them by their parents. I feel long as the name isn’t one of George’s seven words you can’t say on television then leave the parents alone.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      I agree Super Dave and you speak from a point of authority; not many parents name a son Super, but it’s surely a self esteem builder which is important in the formative years.
      Thanks for your comments, as always. You’re just SUPER, Dave.

      I’m so sorry, Hardley. Looks like you have no choice but to go back to Fedurul cort, the OP PD’s Chiefs office and sue me again! I’m sorry, I’m a broke, fat, racist has been who like the old lady on the ad, I’ve fallen and I didn’t get up! I’m a loser, just like fatso Dave and the others who don’t have your net Wurth and intellugunce.

    “When this 7 month old little bugger grows up and is loitering on the corner of 13th and MLK with his four best homies, Sha Nay Nay, Bon Qui Qui, Shabooty and Grapedrankisa…”

    African Americans frequently name their children phonetically, or onomatapoeiacally or after the neighbor’s cat. Trayvon? Really?

    It’s a lazy man’s effort to stand out. A little research in African names would give you some options grounded in African history. Cetshwayo, the famous Zulu King. Why do we never hear of a kid named Mandela? True, he is overrated (South Africa slides further and further into a Hobbesian nightmare with each passing day.), but very popular with libs like Curt. There are options out there–

    http://www.ezakwantu.com/Tribes%20-%20South%20African%20Tribal%20Chiefs,%20Kings%20and%20Traditional%20Rulers.htm

    Instead, we get the prefix “De” in front of everything including the kitchen sink and the suffix “Qua” in back. Ya had, presumably, the entire gestation period to come up with a name and now your kid is doomed to a 10.00 an hour job his whole life because you would not take the time to use Google.

    Then, after installing whatever ridiculous moniker chosen, you reserve the right to get all huffy if anyone notices how unusual it is to have a kid named after a lawn mower, Jondeeria.

    Shut the fu*k up.

  10. chuck says:

    This happened yesterday. A guy named Dondre and a chick named Jerrica shot and killed a guy named David in a drive by.

    Shocking.

  11. chuck says:

    Yesterday, Shacknee, Keyon, Javontae, Demetrius and a chick with a normal name, did this.

    http://www.northescambia.com/2013/08/five-charged-with-attacking-77-year-old-man

    Stupid names, stupid people.

    What can I tell ya Curt?

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Chuck, I’m in the process of hiring about 25 people in a two week span of time for a huge project. 107 resumes into the process I can tell you this, limited sample that it is, but there is a direct relation between names you can’t pronounce and outcome of the hiring process; no racism involved. It’s incredibly difficult to hire labor at $14.00/hr. Youd think twice minimum wage +/- would turn up some candidates but, no.
      I had one person send a PICTURE of their résumé, laid on a table. If you can’t pronounce it, it’s not going to end well.
      NPR did a segment on this very topic a year ago or so. While Curt may be distraught over the message or messenger it doesn’t change the facts.
      I didn’t make up the names, excuse me all to hell if I find some humor in some of them.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Oh, thanks, Chuck, for tainting my second home beach paradise with that story; that was in Pensacola, but the seedy part of town, not out over the three mile bridge, toll bridge and across to the gulf haven!

      Take a close look at Shaknees face; there’s a girl eaten up with pain and hatred. Just barely teens…..chasing a 77 year old man. Brilliant, loving young scholars.

      • paulwilsonkc says:

        I watched your Memphis piece, not to belabor the topic of my other piece from yesterday, renaming Troost to MLK, this crime happened 2 blocks off of, you guessed it, MLK Blvd.
        Mr.Charles should study Memphis, apparently the name change didnt do much to help their cause in Memphis.

  12. Orphan of the Road says:

    When the twins were born, we had no money and paid for everything out of pocket. We were the only married couple and probably the oldest couple at the Booth Maternity Center in Philadelphia.

    At the well-baby clinic after their delivery, we met a young couple also waiting. Their baby had this beautiful name, we thought perhaps it was Swahili or another tribal name.

    The very, young couple said, no, it was the hospital who gave the baby her name. And the name on the little tyke’s bracelet? Garcia, Female.

    I didn’t feel quite as guilty with Kristofor Ian’s name at that point.

    And my parents saddled me with a nickname and a middle-initial only.

    I’ve done pretty good in life. Nice spot under the Paso Bridge and a vacation spot down by Berkley Park.

    I think this chick’s name is MARY and she is putting oil in the car.

    I don’t want to get into the whole racist argument because I really don’t know what Paul’s intent was, but c’mon Paul, you’re clearly smarter than the typical fundamentalist that gets fooled by an Onion piece. That Top Ghetto Names list is from a youtube gag (I can’t post the link from work) with many of the names being so mockingly, over-the-top as to confirm it as parody. Heck, Courtney in the #1 slot pretty much clinches it as gag material.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      PB, my intent is always to have some fun, make people think, play the devils advocate and, from time to time, leave people guessing where I’m coming from. And, since you seem to think Im a “fundamentalist”, I guess its working.

      And I get the Onion/Youtube bit, but honestly, there are 10 pages and 7 million hits worth of references to “ghetteo names”, while Onion has a nice reach and impact, it ain’t 7 million hits worth!

      There are enough real names to give anyone a chuckle, I dont hardly think thats racist. I can laugh at Moon Unit Zappa, I dont hate white people or musicians.

      I can laugh at North West and not hate, hold on, I’ll skip that one.

  15. PB says:

    No worries, just pointing out that some of those “ghetto names” aren’t real. That said and maybe this is racist on my part, at first glance, it can be awfully difficult to sort out what’s real and what’s not when it comes to those sorts of names.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      PB, I actually believed them all but “GrapeDranksa!”

      Thanks, as usual, for your comments. My intent is never to offend someone or come across as a fundamentalist or racist. But I readily admit I do all I can to add some humor, sometimes on the edge, sometimes a little over the edge, but with the intention of making people think in something more than 140 character bursts.
      I’m not afraid to wade into things that, in the end, may give me that moniker to someone who doesn’t really know me. I’m cool with that and willing to take the inevitable fallout from it.
      What’s sad is, in today’s world, anything can make you racist. I give you this from the “Urban Dictionary”
      RACIST
      If you’re a white man, this is what you are. It doesn’t even matter if your wife is black and you have an adopted child from India, or how many black friends you have, somehow you’re going to end up being a racist according to how the media portrays the white man as “racist whities”.
