Michael Lynton is the one who tried to bribe me with a $250,000 offer for me not to say anything about Whitney Houston two days after Ray Norwood threatened to kill me if I said anything about him supplying dope(his word) to Whitney AND three days after Brandy Norwood threatened me by saying that I better not tell anybody that she sold cocaine to Whitney,her threat being a day after the first of four Norwood attempts to kill Whitney with cocaine that was contaminated with whatever that caused Whitney BIG headaches and ultimately caused her to fall,thereby giving Ray Norwood revenge on Whitney for kicking him out of her Hilton suite and putting Brandy up on the $$$ per singing job ladder of success.
What Color Is Love of a Dee Dee Sharp album reminds me of a time I met her at Los Angeles International Airport(LAX), me Kissing Bobby and her as herself-she telling the Four Tops to make some kind of sounds so that she and I could dance The Mashed Potatoes dance. White me and black her had a great dance-then she said to me: “You are Kissing Bobby-kiss me!”. I said to her: “You are a cutie-kiss me!”. We had one great kiss- then Diana Ross stepped up and said to Dee Dee: “You know you are not supposed to kiss a white boy!”. Dee Dee grabbed my head and started kissing me so hard that my lips hurt. Diana Ross got angry and stomped off. The rest of the Supremes started to sing something about the wicked witch going someplace, joined in by the Orlons and the Four Tops. Not great love for Dee Dee and me but good enough love that she and the rest of us showed snobbish and racist Diana Ross that love is VERY colorful for black and white and more! Without Diana Ross there, the other Supremes and I had some SWEEEEET kisses! Billions of people have had love in their lives without Diana Ross. You?
To be clear about why John mccain was kicked out of the US military- about the courtmartial charges he was facing: 1. Disobeying a direct order from a superior officer(his commanding officer)- His commanding officer handing John Mccain a piece of paper and ordered John Mccain to read it. John Mccain never set his eyes to it,dropping it into a trash can. I watch that whole procedure on the order of that commanding officer,following John Mccain until I saw him drop the paper into the trash can. I picked up the paper and took it to that commanding officer and reprted to him what John Mccain had done. The commanding officer directed me to the ship’s legal officer who took my statement, which I signed. I watched him type the John Mccain courtmartial papers on this count. 2. On the one bombing run that I saw John Mccain turned his plane away from the target. Myself and the other pilots in the bombing run signed statements that John Mccain had deliberately disobeyed orders given him to bomb the given target. 3. On the bombing run of item 2 John Mccain did show Cowardice In The Face Of The Enemy to which myself and the other pilots of the bombing run did sign statements to his cowardice. 4. When John Mccain did turn and fire on unarmed civilians,citizens of the Socialist Republic Of Vietnam(an ally of the United States Of America by treaty)-unarmed to his knowledge- the purpose of his being ordered to read the paper in item one was to inform him that the US Army had installed 2 anti-aircraft batteries near where he killed the civilians. The charge of this item was Murder. The murder charge was dropped by the US when the City Of Hanoi charged and tried and convicted him of murder, John Mccain spending many years past the Vietnam War in the Hanoi City Jail-never in a prison or “Hotel Hanoi”. With the chance of bringing back John Mccain on the day of his being shot down(his own arrogance) but I lfet him sitting there after I heard him call the jailers “filthy chinks” and other racist names. John Mccain is still ugly at heart- even many Americans think so,Republicans also.
“separate but equal” sure seems to be considered negative if a white person wants it but many black people use to get out of having to being the classroom as white people- case in point is the famous/infamous forced intergration over the objections of Governor George Wallace where there was much media coverage of the black kids being escorted into the school and into a classroom. BUT! 5 minutes after the “liberal” media cameras were gone those black students objected to being in a classroom with white people and then they claimed “separate but equal” facilities under the still-existing law- no more having to be with white kids, the difference in their lives had changed only by the money they had been paid by “liberal” groups,including media organizations! In the US military there have been mostly intergrated fighting forces- but some black people have tried for sympathy donations by showing all-black units and saying they were segregated-without saying that those soldiers had demanded to fight next to other blacks ONLY! Those soldiers had segregated themselves! Segregated or intergrated is their choice as far as I am concerned- it is the lying so-called liberals(Democrats) that have to be called on their lying- make them responsible for how they make their money. A theft by a lying “liberal” is much more dangerous than a grocery store thief who grabs a loaf of bread to feed her children- the “liberal” stole the money from the society which could have paid for that loaf of bread in the first place.
In the 1960s I sang Hello Dolly with Louis Armstrong in a nightclub in Hollywood – the owner of the club said he recorded it. Anybody have that recording or a copy of that?
On the day he died Elvis called me ,just to talk he said but I started to realize that he really was lonely. Over and over he started on some part of his music and was centering on never being real- back in about 1960 he turned away from video showing me kissing girls and said “I am jealous of you. You are what I pretend to be”. To that I pointed to his opportunity to teach people the kinds of things that was inside him-something that he would be able to carry with him for the rest of his life. I pointed to things like his mother and father and old dogs and men and how he really likes to treat girls(not like his pre-army days music) and more. When I suggested that he sing the gospel music he had sung in church as a kid- he started that religious music so strong that I kidded him by calling him Jesus in jokes like: How many people did you baptise with your music today,Jesus. Laughing at himself was easy for me to make him do because the two of us knew there was a big difference between reality and his pretend world of music- but to those around him his music was the only subject they would talk about,because they wanted him to make more money for them. A good example is the toys in Graceland- everybody said they were wonderful toys but nobody would play with him-what good is a house without happiness? was what he said of Graceland.
So,on that last day of him I talked on the phone for 2 or 3 hours with him- until he got hungry.Thinking of him and his need to have a friend, I sat next to phone and even slept there waiting for him to call back. Elvis never called back, In the morning I read in a newspaper that he had died- presumeably of drug overdose. The drugs may have be an effort to forget that he was lonely. Elvis Presley Died Of Loneliness
