A few months ago it took me a while searching the internet to discover Touré’s last name. A few articles mentioned that he had one and he hates it but didn’t say what it was. I guess he thought it would be edgy and cool to be one of those single-name personalities, like Cher and Meatloaf.
Then I found it – his full name is Touré Neblett.
Ever since then I have made a point to popularize his full name. Whenever I see an article about Touré I always simply leave a comment stating that his last name is Neblett.
I am winning. Neblett now appears in his wiki bio and lots of other places. Who says one person can’t make a difference?
Help make Neblett famous.
Yes, I do like to stir shit. Why do you ask?
You’re doing a great job myiq.
Ummm, making a difference.
I use a big stick
This one is just for Dandy Tiger:
I always talk out of my ass.
but is Toure really his given name?
I’d like to know about his parents?? Snoopy, nosy that’s me.
A quantum physicist and the poet laureate. Just a guess.
A quantum physicist and a PhD psychologist. another guess.
His Wiki only mentions his dead father, so it’s practically a given his mom was white.
His dad was an accountant.
Here’s some more info about Mr. Neblett:
Okay, how do we reconcile THIS? From your link:
Bolding mine. Now, from his Wiki:
Obama wrote his bio for him?
Darth Vader was his father.
I hate to defend the idiot in any way, but if his mother remarried, he could be referring to his stepfather. My cousin’s father died when she was 3; her mom remarried when she was 6 and she refers to her mother & stepfather as her “parents” and her stepfather simply as “dad” — she knows her stepfather isn’t her biological father, but he *did* raise her, etc. and she doesn’t feel the need to make the distinction of “stepfather.”
No need to apologize, angienc…Oswald already said what I was going to say – obama – or maybe it was bill ayers – wrote the bio.
I do get that, Angie. My daughter is the same way and I married her stepfather when she was 13. But still, he’s awfully quiet about his parents except for this watermelon tripe and the dead father victimology. I tried looking it up earlier. The most hilarious part was that over half of the top links were to Myiq’s CH posts bitching about Touré. LOL!
Guys like Touré are actively involved in managing their own Wikis. It’s all part of the PR angle. I bet money he has a google alert set up on his name. Both of them.
Believe it or not, many black folks don’t like Toure much. They don’t trust him and there are many conspiracy theories about him, like maybe he works for the CIA or something.
My favorite quote about him is, “Toure Neblett is not a White person’s dream. Toure Neblett is a White person’s creation.”
Does anybody like Touré Neblett?
Tupac is cursing his name in heaven, of that I am sure.
You mean except for Touré himself? No. Not likely.
what does it mean when a court throws out a case saying those who brought to case to court ” do not have the proper standing”?
Standing means you were personally injured or affected.
I usually get injured or affected while lying down.
It’s usually the falling down part that causes the hurt.
I’m confused. So, does that mean you are actually standing while you are lying down? 👿
Only when he takes Viagra
True story. 👿
The court recognizes you may have been aggrieved in some way and have a right to seek legal redress. Lack of standing means you are a neighborhood busy-body.
ObamaTax may be the most poorly constructed legislation ever to come out of Congress. It makes things much worse. The Democratic Party deserves extinction for this travesty.
“Under rules proposed by the (Internal Revenue) service, some working-class families would be unable to afford family coverage offered by their employers, and yet they would not qualify for subsidies provided by the law.”
“The fight revolves around how to define “affordable” under provisions of the law that are ambiguous. The definition could have huge practical consequences, affecting who gets help from the government in buying health insurance”.
The little zombie fuckers passed it without reading it. I agree, the current Dem party deserves extinction for this.
This take-down was epic:
Pompous, arrogant, smug, self-serving, effete, hubristic, a$$hole. I’m certain I missed a few adjectives. Anyone can play.
I try to add adjective, but steam comes out of my ears.
douchebag works for me
Ryan and his mom in Florida:
Stunning how clueless the Obots can be. They’re still happy about Ryan. I almost feel sorry for them. Almost.
Does Markie know Greese is burning? 👿
Greese is the word
I got an email from this idiot a few days ago. It sounded just like that tweet. I think the Ha ha ha is on him.
Maybe I just have food on the brain (quite possible), but every time I hear Toure’s last name, I think of delicious corn. Niblet? Get it?
I’m pretty sure that has to be racist.
Is Donna Brazile Toure`s mother? I just read some of her tweets. It is to cry. Maybe she wrote his bio. I don’t know why I follow her. I must be a masochist.
It’s like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer because it feels so good when you stop.
not looking too good for California
Trying to figure out how to let my school-teacher daughter down gently. She’s hoping and praying CA voters approve another tax plan in November so they can keep her school open after Christmas vacation. Otherwise, they say, its curtains for them,
Talk I hear is “no-way”. But even if that happened, what would there be left to tax? Hard times coming.
They could tax Amazon’s online sales in the state. They could tax the $125 billion in profits Apple has sitting in offshore cash.
California public employee pensions (of which teachers are a big part) are currently underfunded by about $600 BILLION.
California sales tax is about 7% – how much are Amazon’s sales?
Meanwhile, Governor Moonbeam wants to build a $100 billion bullet train to nowhere.
No doubt it’s a very big hole, but they probably also get those big numbers by projecting out to 30 year plus horizons, and this is of course all based on the lowest interest rates we’ve seen in the market in virtually a century. Been seeing that with other pension liability numbers in the media. But interest rates won’t be this low for 30 years and beyond. That’s unless we become a dead-in-the-water economy like Japan. Which is why we need to accelerate the plane out of its stall, even if that means keeping the flaps down for a bit longer. We need to steer into the skid to right the car. We pull too hard with the austerity business and we’ll end up in the ditch forever.
The policy reality doesn’t always match the political rhetoric anyway.
Has timmy the adopted dad been around lately..
Hmm…..this dude. To put it mildly, the minorities don’t have a great opinion about him. And the rest would be too crude and rude for this blog. Lets leave it at that.
