It Ain't my Fault

There is something that pisses me off something fierce.

It is people that do not own up to their mistakes. It is people that constantly make excuses for their own bad decisions.

Someone else is always to blame for their fuck-ups.

In my opinion being addicted to crack, heroin, meth, pain killers, porn, chocolate, fat women or whatever a person finds themselves addicted to is not a disease.

It is a choice.

People choose to get high.

People choose to eat until they have to have our brave firefighters use a forklift to get their 900 pound asses out of their house.

All of this is a choice. A bad choice, but a choice none the less.

So why are scientists, government paid scientists, (i.e. tax payers are paying for their research)wasting our money to conduct studies that try to prove that getting high and letting your weight balloon to crazy proportions is a disease?

I understand that depression will drive a person to do certain things that they would not normally do. But it is still a choice to put a needle in your arm, or a glass pipe to your lips.

I have been around crack dealers and crack heads. I have seen what people will do to get their fix. It is no disease. It is a weakness. It takes a very weak person to choose to die slow instead of just ending their pain quick.

A person would have to be from Pluto to not know what drugs, to much food, or unprotected sex will do to you.

So the bottom line is this...

In this society there is no repercussions for your actions.

A person can do whatever the hell they choose to do with no consequences.

All they have to do is say, is 'It is not my fault that I just stole from my mother and disowned my family, my wife and kids to get money for crack. I have a disease, so why worry about it.'

Addiction is not a disease.

A person had to make the decision to start doing whatever it is they are addicted to.

They had to make a choice.

No one is born high, fat or with a pair of dice or a racing form in their hands.

So in my opinion, and this is only my opinion, If a person chooses to start life threatening behavior, then he/she is a threat to society as a whole and should be dealt with like a threat.

I have no remorse for crack heads or anyone else that uses their choice to get addicted to whatever they choose to get addicted to as an excuse to keep doing whatever it is they are doing.

In my opinion Fuck em.

Fine as Frog Hair

My man Zack wrote a post last week talking about how he thinks women do not find him attractive. Zack is a very good writer, and if none of yall have checked him out before, show my little brah some love. You will not be disappointed.

The only thing about my man is that he is a little bit too honest at times. He tells some things about himself that frankly I would not ever mention in public, let alone on a blog that hundreds or perhaps thousands of people see.

But I guess that is why he is such a good writer.


Zack asked his loyal readers a question.

What does it feel like to be considered good-looking?

I answered in the comment section, that "Swagger" and confidence are what make a person attractive.

In my opinion Zack has both of these qualities for the simple fact of how honest he is on his blog. It takes swag and confidence to talk about his faults and his dislikes the way he does.

I could never do that. I talk about myself a little bit here, but there are certain things that I will not divulge.

Not that I am scared or anything....
Well maybe I am scared.....

It is just that you never know who or what is reading this.

So what does make a person attractive?

Is it looks?

Or could it be money?

Or am I right, and it is confidence?

Because if it is confidence, why is my man Zack having such a rough time finding a woman?

I can't answer that.

Women say at least a thousand times a day about how there are no good (black) men left, yet there is one named Zack that says he can't get the time of day.

Go figure.

Our Father who is in Heaven....

I consider myself a God Fearing man.

I believe in Jesus. I believe he is the son of my God. I pray through him to my God every day I wake up. I pray for my family, my continued health, the health of my loved ones. I pray for his will to be done. I pray for HIS kingdom to be established.

That is why I did not pray for his O-ness to be elected President.

I felt it would be wrong to pray for a man made "kingdom" to be established. I have no trust in man, so why would I offer my prayers to see a man become "king"?

I told a cat this at work and he said I was wrong. He said I should have prayed that this man became president because of all the hell our people have gone through.

What the hot ass hell does that have to do with who becomes president?

I did not say that I did not pray for Big O's overall welfare, because with the threats that he is getting on a daily basis,he is going to need all the prayers he can get.

But I feel praying for the up keep of any man made institution is wrong.

I don't know if I am a Christian or not, since I have never been officially baptised into any man's church.

Besides, with the mistakes I have made, and what I know I am capable of doing now, I feel I am not too "Christ-like".

But I do know who God is and I know what he has done and will do for me.

To me praying for Obama to become President is like praying for the Cowboys to beat the Deadskins.

Or praying that my lottery numbers hit.

It just don't seem right to me.

So did any of yall pray that Obama would win?

If you give a mouse some cheese, he'll come back for crackers and wine....


If you or I were to f%^ck off our money, get behind on our bills,mismanage our children's college fund and piss off our 401K's, would you expect our government to write us a check that would cover our debts?


Wait for the answer....

Wait...for... it....

Hell to the nawl!!

We would have to file bankruptcy,our house would be auctioned off on the front of the courthouse steps, our kids would be lucky to attend the local community college, (while they live in our basements) and we would all have to get 2nd jobs as greeters at Wal-Mart. After we "retire" from our "careers" that is.

This is the way our government would handle our situation.

So why in the hot ass hell is our government expecting US, tax-payers, aka "Joe Six-Pack" to bail out companies that have done exactly what I just described?

First it was the 700 BILLION, that was approved last month to supposedly help people with bad mortgages, that now is not going to help people with bad mortgages, but it is now going to the banks that gave out the mortgages in the first place. And now the big car companies want the same deal.

These companies, banks and insurance giants were ran into the ground by money hungry, slimy ass slimy CEO's. They are the ones that mismanaged their companies assets, not me or you.

So why should my great great great....(you get the picture)grand children have to pay for their fuckery?

Why is my country borrowing money from countries that could give a damn about us to give money to crooked ass crooked companies?

In my opinion, all those high paid executives should be thrown in prison, and their assets liquidated to help bailout their respected companies.

My hard earned pennies should not even be mentioned into this equation.

But that would be in the world I would create.

A world were people were actually held responsible for their actions.

A world were if you f*%ked with people's money, money that they were counting on for their and their families future survival, you paid the price, even if that price demanded your money, your freedom or your life.

Yep, that is the world I would like to live in.

No one on the corner has swagger like us....

It feels good to be proven wrong.

I did not think his O-ness could pull it off. I thought that all those folks that said they wanted change out in public would reneg when they were in the privacy of that booth.

Boy, was I wrong!!!

Big O got 65% of the white vote.

He got 67% of the Latino vote.

We all know he got probably 99.9% of the Black vote. The only Black dude I know that voted against him was my man Daddio911. But he is on a planet all to himself.

This is a good day to be an American.

I am finally represented in a positive manner to the world.

I no longer have to be a basketball player, a football player or a rapper to be considered as having made it.

I don't have to sing for you or dance for you, or make you laugh to be considered a "good" American.

I don't have to be a movie star to be considered mainstream.

Now I have someone that looks like me, talks like me and acts like me, talking FOR me to the world.

There is someone that shares my heritage representing me.

The notion that some people in this country have that Black People are inferior to the rest of the people that inhabit this great country of ours was squashed last night.

This election was never about electing the first "black" president.
It was about being accepted and recognized for being American, no matter what color your skin is.

This election was not about only me or people that look like me.

It was about being American.

For the first time in my life I am proud of my country.

My Sick Since of Humor

I thought that the above cartoon was funny as hell. I was rolling when I saw this over at Raving Black Lunitic. It would not be so funny if it were not true. After "Rednecks for Change", I pretty much expect anything to happen tommorow.

Oh, and by the way....

My name is Dirty Red and I am an Obamaholic.

(Shouts to my man the Field Negro).
