44 in 40 More Comic Books

There is no question that the Curators of the Museum Of UnCut Funk are huge supporters of President Barack Obama. We have spent a great deal of time documenting his speeches and his accomplishments. We have also been collecting unique artifacts from his presidency. Comic books are the medium we have chosen to preserve in our archives. We have acquired comics that reflect his road to the White House, his role as a superhero and as a villain. There are a number of comics that President Obama has appeared or mentioned in and Marvel has cataloged 40 additional comics featuring President Barack Obama.

NO MORE FUNKIN’ WAR

NO MORE FUNKIN’ WAR

As long as I’ve been alive there’s been war.  Taken from npr.org: “The U.S. is going to deploy more military trainers to Iraq. President Obama has approved sending 450 more Americans in the effort to take back Anbar province from the self-proclaimed Islamic State.  That’s the largely Sunni region which stretches west from Baghdad to the border with Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.  Iraqi government forces have done poorly against ISIS.”

A FUNKIN’ PSA on AMERICAN TRAVESTY – The Tragedy of Michael Brown

A FUNKIN’ PSA on AMERICAN TRAVESTY – The Tragedy of Michael Brown

FROM THE WASHINGTON POST:  “A grand jury has declined to indict Darren Wilson, the white Ferguson, Mo. police officer whose fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager sparked days of turbulent protests and a national conversation about race and police interactions with African Americans, prosecutors said Monday.  The decision means that Wilson, 28, will face no state charges in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.”

FUNK THE MIDDLE-CLASS

FUNK THE MIDDLE-CLASS

‎There is no FUNKIN’ “Middle-Class.”  Dear friends, associates, lovers of this website and random blog readers, ever since G. W. Bush Funked Up the economy, the “Middle-Class” has ceased to exist.  Sure, for the most part the Working Class – those with ambition – have been ok, but unless you’re bringing in a minimum of 200-250k, you are not of today’s “Middle-Class.”  It’s cold ain’t it, but it’s real – the sooner you accept this reality, the more equipped you will be to change it.

FUNKALICIOUS 200!! THE BREAKDOWN OF HANDKERCHIEF HEADS

FUNKALICIOUS 200!! THE BREAKDOWN OF HANDKERCHIEF HEADS

Some television shows celebrate their 200th episode.  Generally T-V programs will review and/ or reflect on shows past, when celebrating the 200th show.  That’s very appropriate for television, and I suppose I could touch on a few of my favorite blogs over the past five years, but I believe speaking on public figures that are anti-FUNK or just plain FUNKED UP may be more intriguing.
