Moses brings plenty for you too

story - big group of work people went out to dinner Wed night. Each person had to come up with a conversation topic.

we had one weird guy.
it was this guy's turn.

after about 5 minutes of weird non-sequiters from him - something about South Dakota, something about going to Milwaukee this weekend, something about a band, something about a movie and a guy named Moses who was going to run for president - finaly, I demanded the topic from him.

his topic: name the movie star you would want to meet

it was then revealed that all of his gibberish previously had been about an actor he had met, Moses Brings Plenty - whose name I kept saying as Moses Pennyworth.

this guy went on about how cool Moses was, how he was the coolest person he had ever met, and he was going to run for president.

My boss was at the table. My boss isn't the type of guy who understands people that don't love UW football or people who think that an independant candidacy for president is legit. the boss kept making faces that indicated he really thought the guy was weird.

Next day, we looked up Moses on the internet. Turns out his homepage is http://www.bringsplenty.com/ - the guy is a completely normal actor, musician, native american, stunt guy, horseback rider, presidential candidate (the candidacy seems to be underwraps right now as it isn't mentioned) - odd, but not as odd as the guy that brought it up at dinner.

then we found this picture:

this is odd.

I saved it to my desktop. Now, me and anyone else near me can laugh hysterically everytime I close all my windows or log in.
while the arms-behind-the-head-pelvis-thrust pose is the funniest part, it keeps making me look at his homemade pants, which are oddly pleated. That is funny too.


here is the picture Moses will probably be using while on the campaign trail:

Can you imagine John McCain in the pelvis thrust pose?

You are a fucking dumb ass. If you really knew anything about Moses or what he stands for you wouldn't be making such a nasty post about him. Lets see some of your pictures. =) Get over yourself....there's too much hate in this world today.

I completely agree with you, Sarah Ann! If these people really knew Moses, they would not being saying the nasty things that they are. There is WAY too much hate in the world, and people need to take a good long look in the mirror! You and Moses ROCK!! Keep up the wonderful work!

We got to know this controversial figure and found out the "walk is not about the talk". Its about a Hollywood image which is not new to us Indians. I think we were fooled into thinking that the talk was real but it is our own fault for having expectations and that is what got us into trouble. Caution to those who are enticed by eloquent words.

Wow, after reading this, I am led to believe that a crazy person wrote the original blog, and all but two people who posted are jealous. Moses Brings Plenty is a person with more integrity, honesty, and love for humanity than you will ever meet in your twisted little world. Get over being bored with your life, get out of your comfort zone and do something for the people of this nation the way Moses has.... Some indians are just as bad as white people... they are like the crab in the bucket.... One climbs to the top to escape and the others pull it back down. Moses speaks and lives a life of pride without prejudice... you should try that on for size.

~I'm one of those “white people”. It would be way too easy for me to believe that he is just an opportunist using the plight of his people for his shot at some, (by comparison), meaningless15 minutes. And wouldn’t that resonate more with your idea of me? I would never even have know of this person's existence had I not typed in Ridge instead of "Bridge" and subsequently fallen into a You Tube rabbit hole. Not one breath of his impassioned speech directed towards the youth of Indigenous nations had anything to do with my life, but his deliverance of that speech made me listen ~ a couple of times, I might add. If he's a fake, then he's friggon dangerous! ~and if he's not, then he's an asset to any cause he may lend his voice to.

Some of you people are idiots. Moses is a speaker of the truth, and a very wise man. I think it's a shame for you to say these things.
And by the way I'm white, but I know all about how the native Americans have been screwed over,and still are to this day.
You Go Moses
