After a 3 hour, 70 tweet twitter rant, Mr. West suggested that through his new design company DONDA, he will galvanize amazing thinkers and put them in a creative space to bounce their dreams and ideas.
Named after his late mother, DONDA will encompass 22 divisions with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford.
@kanyewest said “ Being a celebrity has afforded me many opportunities but has also boxed me in creatively. I care about people who have never heard of me… There are over 7 billion people on the planet now. Schools should be designed to prep human beings for real life. What good is fame and prestige if you can’t use it to help people… I want to help by doing what I know how to do best … create.”
The King of all media is assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors, musicians, producers, writers, publicists, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionists, doctors, scientists and educators for this ambitious project.
Kanye said he hopes to use his influence to positively change the world through design and to pick up where Steve Jobs left off.
“ My area of expertise is in music, my passion is in design, my strength is in connectivity. There are so many broken systems from the economy to school to jail. We need experts for this – amazing creatives – to directly affect governments. I sit everyday and ask what can I do to make adifference.” – Kanye West
It’s just common sense. You don’t build a Shinto Shrine at Pearl Harbor. You don’t build a Nazi Hall of Fame in Jerusalem. You don’t build a Muslim Mosque at Ground Zero, NYC.
Naturally, Obama’s all for it. No doubt he will be there in person, cheering wildly for the grand opening on September 11, 2011 – the ten year Anniversary of the 9-11 World Trade Center controlled demolition.
There’s something obscenely wrong with the Obama administration’s use of US taxpayer funding to build a $100,000,000 shrine dedicated to those who were murdered on 9-11-2001 for the glory of Islam and to the Muslims who killed them.
Hey Obama, bring your shinebox. You can bow to your Lord and Master, the King of Saudi Arabia, and shine his shoes.
Another slap in the face to America. Only in Obama’s America.
Everyday there is a new headline about the violence and unrest at the US-Mexico border. Drug cartels feuding, local officials gunned down and of course illegal immigrants streaming into the United States.
Residents of Fort Hancock, Texas are under siege. The violence and danger has literally spilled over the Rio Grande and into their backyards.
Citizens are armed and ready, the default border security. The sheriff has a $250,000 hit on him and he says ” Oh, it’s War!”
The Federal Government has lost control of the border. In Juarez, Mexico it’s a state of war.
Despite Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano being quoted as saying:
” Everything that can be done to ensure this border remains safe and secure, to assist the government of Mexico in their efforts against the cartels and the cartel violence in Mexico [Ciudad Juarez being an example of that] and we’re going to make sure that those who come and seek to violate our laws by entering our country illegally or bringing contraband into our country or those who seek going south to carry illegal guns and cash south, that they are apprehended and prosecuted.”
It appears the Federal Government, the Border Patrol especially, has essentially abandoned the residents of Fort Hancock, Texas.
Why does House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continue to defend the major ethics violator Charles Rangel, the now former Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee?
Members of Congress should be held to high ethical standards.
Crime Pays for Charlie Rangel. Enormous embarrassment for Democrats. Crime pays for Fat Cat Charles Rangel.
Crime Pays for Fat Cat Charles Rangel living the life of luxury at his Punta Cana Resort in exquisite Dominican Republic Your Tax Dollars hard at work
New York Post photo of Charles Rangel lying on the beach in the Dominican Republic.
Rangel’s actions do not pass Pelosi’s smell test and it was her promise to drain the swamp in Washington. Congressman Joe Wilson said it best, ” YOU LIE ”
I guess it’s difficult for Pelosi to pull the plug and drain the swamp, in which she slithers.
Members of Congress SHOULD be held to high ethical standards.
I know the arrogant twenty term Congressman from New York believes he is above the law and believes the tax code does not apply to him but this is terrible PR for the Democrats who are hellbent on destroying Capitalism, the free enterprise system and traditional American values.
Let the sunshine of truth and fair play disinfect the Charles Rangel spectacle and social welfare state of the Democratic Congress.
Hey Rangel, take responsibility for your actions and move on.
” The Swamp has not been Drained.” – John Boehner, House Republican Leader
