Groups like BTS and Blackpink are two examples of how faithful fans are able to help thrust their idols into worldwide icons. These groups are mega talented with the ability to move mountains and it all starts with the fans. The fans are so important to these artist that they pretty much tailor their careers around the fans and their ability to connect to the artist.
On this take of KPOP Talent we will take a look at The Refund Sisters. The Refund Sisters is a Korean supergroup which is a group made up of people who are currently signed with other K-pop groups. Right now you have SuperM which is a male group with members from EXO, NCT127, and Shinee.
The newest supergroup is a female group featuring solo singers. We have Uhm Jung-hwa who is the eldest of the group at 51 years old. She looks every bit of 25, and her voice!!! It is hard to explain just how perfect she sounds. We also have Lee Hyo-ri, she is 41 and once again looks 20! Once again her voice is priceless. These two artist have been out of the spotlight for a while. Lee Hyo-ri was in the Jessi song I posted some months ago.
Now that we mentioned Jessi, I am delighted to tell you that Jessi is also in the supergroup. Yes!!! She is 31! If you are asking yourself why am I posting ages, it is because we have three decades of KPOP stars in this group, and they all slayyyyy. It just goes to show you that K-pop has always been a force, but now that we have the ability to share the music with more people, it is taking over! I love it!!! Before I forget, I have to tell you about the last member of the group!Ahn Hye-jin or better yet Hwasa, if she sounds farmilar it is because she was a member of Mamamoo.
The sad news about supergroups is that they are not meant to last for longer than a season. They are called seasonal or temp because these people are also signed to their main labels. So, enjoy the new song and check out the cry fest below! I promise you will need tissue.
We often hear Trump talk about his similarities to Lincoln, but I wonder if people know just how similar he is to Hitler. History was one of my favorite subjects in college, I studied both American and European historical periods. In the beginning, Trump appeared to have some Lincoln similarities. One of the main reasons the Civil War was fought was because slavery moved into states that were free states. Plantation owners were slowly moving into states that were free of slavery due to the Missouri Compromise. When these plantation owners moved to free states (illegally) to take over land, they would force working people into poverty.
Obama and Trump both saw similarities to the displacement of American workers which is what prompted stricter immigration laws. Prior to Obama coming into office President Bush and President Fox of Mexico encouraged dealings which led the way for illegal immigration to boom in America. Due to the economic crisis that took over around the end of the Bush years, people were tired. They then voted for Obama because at this point, unemployment was horrific.
Obama worked on immigration issues and he also worked on getting some of the hardest hit industries back on their feet. By the time Trump came in office, he was coming into a situation that was already in its healing process. We had a lot of jobs that were open, but sadly not a lot of people were trying to get back to work. https://www.factcheck.org/2016/07/obamas-numbers-july-2016-update/
So, after Obama, Trump enters office. He continues to build on what Obama has already placed into motion and then he doubles down on immigration. While his talking points in the beginning sound a lot like Obama and Lincoln, his actions seem to take a different turn into his presidency. He wages economic wars with rivals and secures business relationships from abroad with various countries. Some of those relationships come into question because of his businesses. Trump then puts tax laws in place to offer relief to those who earn the most while placing boundaries between the poor and well off. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/29/trump-suburban-voters-will-no-longer-be-bothered-by-low-income-housing.html
As of today, we have Trump taking away unity training which helps to loosen the chains of racism and he has introduced a new form of History for our children. These are things that Hitler did when he was trying to perform a mindwipe on the citizens in Germany. If you are unfamiliar with the term mindwipe, it is a reset of everything you know. Hitler had his own group of people protecting his gatherings before he turned into the mass murderer we all know. Trump has also been quoted telling his Proud Boys to stand by. Trump is even on record talking about getting his own network together to go against FOX News because they did not spread more of his political messages to the public.
With all of these problematic behaviors, why were there so many people who voted for Trump? Could it be that we have a large number of Americans who want some form of a dictatorship? If we are not careful, Trump could send America to its first single party dictatorship which would shatter the America we know and love. Currently, Trump and his allies are trying to corrupt the sacred right of voting. They are using lies and anything else that they can use to have legal votes thrown out. A lot of the votes in Arizona that were labeled fraud came from military families that held that state as their home of record. Just a few articles to show you where we are on keeping up with misinformation.
It’s almost like we live in two different countries today. The common theme amongst Twitter users seems to be centered around political beliefs right now. At some point, a country has to be able to put down their opinions and state the obvious. We can make this country great again by looking at what we accept into nothing more than our front door.
Its that simple. Think about the values you would willingly accept into your home and weight the two candidates. Let us break down the current presidential election. We have Joe Biden vs President Trump. Both men have tainted histories on race relations and questionable histories in regards to their treatment of women.
When I worked as an investigator sexual assault was when a person penetrated or fondled an individual. It was a little more than someone smelling someone’s hair or hugging an individual. I actually had a case once that was called in against a religious leader because he side hugged a minor. He didn’t touch her inappropriately and in truth she said she didn’t know if hugging was considered assault. The school that called it in said that they didn’t know if calling it in was the right thing to do because it seemed innocent, but we still investigated it. So, what is the medical term for sexual assault.
Sexual assault is any sexual activity to which you haven’t freely given your consent. This includes completed or attempted sex acts that are against your will. Sometimes it can involve a victim who is unable to consent. It also includes abusive sexual contact. It can happen to men, women or children.
Both candidates have a sorted history of race relations. VP Joe Biden has said and done things in his history that makes black people uneasy. He was at times on the wrong side of the street. However, he went on to change his ways which eventually led to Obama nominating him for his VP. After he was in office he and President Obama went on to do a lot of great things for African Americans. I think Biden’s heart changed. If he were the man he was in his 30’s he wouldn’t have ever run with President Obama. He could have easily changed parties if his feelings were truly coated in racism. https://theintercept.com/2019/09/13/joe-biden-democratic-debate-slavery/ As a former investigator, I can tell you he was somewhat right about what he said in regards to family issues. The sad fact is that we have a lot of children without both parents in the home. That creates a lot of issues and those issues create more issues. https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2016/10/14/progress-african-american-community-during-obama-administration
So, at the end of the day, both men have been on the wrong side of important issues to some degree. One was able to gain redemption with his work in the White House under Obama, and the other one is currently still working on his legacy. If it were only about these two issues, we would be in for a good race. However, we have a looming issue called COVID-19 lurking in the shadows. Presidencies are built or broken on crisis and crisis reactions. With nearly 100,000 people dead and more sickness on the horizon hearts will change. This election will come down to two things in the end. It will come down to the recovery of the economy and the physical recovery of a country. If more people die because of the COVID-19 virus more people will feel a need to change direction.
When you are deciding who to support think about the front door question. Who would you be more likely to open your home to?
