The 1st Ammendment... A beautiful thing


This post is going to elicit several different opinions.

I am going to hear that a brother has to do what a brother has to do to keep his paper flowing.

I am going to have some people that agree with me.

This is how I feel on this subject...

Josh Howard, a NBA player for the Dallas Mavericks was caught on video saying how he did not believe in the National Anthem. I have blogged about how this brother needs to keep his mouth shut before when he admitted on a radio show here in Dallas about how he gets lifted during the off season. Anyway the video about the National Anthem was leaked to U-Tube and the brother has caught all kinds of hell for telling how he and the majority of blacks in this country feel.

Don't get me wrong... This is not going to be an anti-American rant.

I love being an American, as I am sure Josh Howard does.

But (of course there is a but), The words of the Anthem were not written with people that looked like me in mind.

"Liberty and Justice for all"

Can anyone actually reading this say this is true?

Anyways... Mr. Howard felt the need to apologize for his comments in order to keep his money flowing. I do not agree with his apology.

Why apologize for saying something you meant to say? Of course he does not mean it and anyone that heard him could see he does not mean it. But this being America the land of "free speech" he was forced to give a "heartfelt" apology. He was forced to appease the people that he "offended".

Me being me I say F%%ck them.

If I was Josh Howard this is what I would have said at my press conference....


"Good afternoon.
Thank you all for coming.
I apologize for breaking you all away from your busy schedules for something like this. As you all know the past couple of months I have been the subject of some very negative press. All of it was my own lack of thinking. I am not here to blame anyone else for my actions. I was supposed to come here today to apologize for my comments concerning the National Anthem. I am not going to do that. I cannot stand up here and tell a lie. I meant what I said and I stand by what I said. I believe that this country was not founded by men who gave a damn about me. In the constitution all men that look like me are not even considered a whole man. And I have to mention that when the words of the National Anthem were written the sentiments of this country's leaders had not changed. This nations history has shown that the words of the Anthem, "Liberty and Justice for all" does not apply to me or anyone that looks like me. But me being an American citizen, even though the constitution was not written for me, it still applies to me. According to the 1st Amendment of said constitution, I have the right to say whatever I feel the need to say. The 1st amendment does not say that I can only say what I feel as long as I do not offend anyone. I did not break any laws by voicing my opinion. I just said something that some people did not like. I understand I may lose some endorsements behind this statement, but let's face it, I make 9 million dollars a year. Losing an endorsement for 500,000 will not hurt me that much. Financially I am set for life. Mr Cuban might be forced to trade me due to this statement, but that does not concern me. My contract was guaranteed, which means I will get my money no matter where I am. So I do not need to appease anyone I offended. If I did offend anyone with my comments concerning the National Anthem, then all I can say is, get over it. I am not here to be a role model for your kids. I am a role model for my kids and my kids alone. Your kids should go by the example you set, not by what some celebrity says and does. Just because I am in the public eye does not mean I have to stop being who I am. It does not mean I have to stop being Josh Howard. I am a Black Man in America. That is who I am and that is what you all see standing before you now. That is all I can be.

Thank-you again for coming."

If only it were like this.

What would you have said?

Straight Bitchassness

I consider myself a man with an open mind. I try to expose myself to as much as I can. I do this to keep my mind active. I read a lot, I expose myself to different kinds of music, I try to watch different programs on T.V. and I try to expose myself to as many different cultures as I can. I am really striving to be a "citizen" of the Global Community instead a resident of South Dallas County.

I say all this to bring up a point.

It is amazing to me how close minded some of my "cousins" are.

Case and point...

I just stated that I listen to different types of music.

Well this morning I am at work jamming my Incubus station on Pandora.com. For those of you that are not hip to Pandora.com, it is an Internet station that allows you to program what you want to listen to.

Example... say you like Big Daddy Kane (which I do), you simply type in Big Daddy Kane, and all his music plays as well as anyone that is like him.

I have a Big Daddy Kane station, an Earth Wind and Fire Station, an Al Green Station, a Linkin Park station (that's rock)a Jay Z station, a Creed station, Chuck Brown, Beanie Man, Eric B and Rakim,Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phil Collins, Depeche Mode I already said Incubus and well you get the picture.

I have pretty much the whole spectrum of music covered.

So like I was saying... I was jamming my Incubus station (that's rock)not thinking about nothing, when I call the next person in the Que to be seen. It was a brother.
The first thing he asked was 'Why are you listening to that shit?' I looked at him and said, "because I am a grown ass man and I can listen to whatever the hell I want to". (That was a direct quote.)Well he shut up and didn't say anything else the rest of the 10 or 15 minutes it took for me to do what he came into my office for me to do. As he was leaving he said real low, damn near whispering, which told me what kind of bitch ass bitch he was, "I bet your ass is a Republican too."
I damn near lost it. I was close to showing him how a hood nigga (like myself) from back East handled slow minded Texas ass Texans.

But I got a family, a mortgage, 2 car notes, and more bills than the average man, and I needs my paper. So I had to slow my role.
I just calmly said "Naa Brah. I ain't a Republican, but since I am not a felon, I can vote.Can you? My bad.. your paperwork said you just got off parole" (That was a direct quote)I did not say this low, I said this where everyone could hear it.
The dude put his head down and left without another word.

The point of this little story is...
What is the definition of Blackness?
Am I a less of a Black Man just because I like Rock Music?
If I was a Republican (lord forbid)would that make me less of a Black man?
What about if I happened to like White Women? (If I was single, I know a couple of Becky's that could get it.. All day and twice on Sunday.)
Why am I expected to be the "typical", loud, ignorant ass nigga?
I don't understand this slow minded mentality.
It is exactly like my people saying if I do good in school I am trying to be White.
What the F%^K is wrong with my people?
Just because I like something different from you, that makes me less of a Black Man?

Damn...

Sometimes I can't stand the way my people act sometimes.

I just cannot do ignorance.

Am I wrong?

This pretty much sums up Mcsane and the Almost Beauty Queen


I thought this picture was funny as hell. I jacked it from the Insanity Report.

Anyways that'll do it for this post. I am still trying to get my mind around how Jr. and his flunkies had the nerve to send a 3 page bill to Congress explaining why we (American Taxpayers) need to fork over SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION dollars to bail out companies whose RICH ass RICH CEO'S ran into the dirt.

3 Fucking Pages!!!

Man give me a break!!!

My mortgage paperwork was damn near 40 pages and it was just for a little over 150,000.

And all it takes to ask for SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION is 3 damn pages?

I tell you if the American People give the Rethugs 4 more years to do the same bullshit...

All I can say is Damn..

Lawd help us!!

"There is nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action" Tommy Smothers

The title of this post was taken from a comment that Tommy Smothers made at this past weekend's Emmy Awards.

I can't think of a truer statement. I thought of this when I heard about a new poll this morning that was taken by a group of college students at one of America's Ivy League Colleges. This poll interviewed 2200 (give or take 1 or 2) White Democrats. One of the questions of this poll was, How much of a factor is race when deciding your vote in this Presidential Election?

40% of those 2200 (give or take 1 or 2)White Democrats said that they could not and will not vote for a Black Man for President of these here "United" States.

Another question that was asked on this poll showed that 25% of those good working class AmeriKKKans said they had negative views about Black people.

Is any of this surprising?

Not to me. I am Black in AmeriKKKa and I have seen the ugly face of racism smiling at me numerous times in the past and the present.

But the question I have to ask, is how accurate is this poll?

I think it is more than 40% and definitely more than 25%.

The reason I feel this way is because it is not politically correct for a person in these here "United" States of America to be honest about how they really feel.

At least not in public.

No one wants to be seen as a "racist".
How many times have you heard, 'Some of my best friends are Black?' Or my favorite 'I have always been friendly to "you" people?'

Especially the "Democratic" party. They are supposed to be the party of "diversity" and "unity".

Another reason I feel this way is because most AmeriKKKans believe what the media tells them.

How often are Blacks displayed negatively in the media?

If you live somewhere where Blacks are really the minority (Like all those states that Hill-Billy won)and all you see on the news are Black Drug dealers, Blacks lead the country in all Aids cases, More Blacks are in prison than college, Black men do not support their children, Black kids do not value education, Blacks are more likely to commit murder than any other race, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and all the other "race baiters", "specials" like CNN's Black in America, what would you think if you were not smart enough to think for yourself?

Most people vote with their feelings instead of voting for what really matters. This includes Blacks and Whites.

That is why I think Obama will lose.

It doesn't matter to those 40% of the 2200 (give or take 1 or 2)or those 25%(give or take 1 or 2) that the current administration has presided over a recession, have damn near burned the Constitution and tried to put it out by pissin on it, gotten us into an illegal war, have neglected the needs of people without health care, have not secured our borders, have seen more American jobs disappear than any other administration in history, have ignored the education needs of our children and have borrowed so much money from foreign nations that my children's great grand children will have to pay it back. I could go on and on.

It does not matter to those people polled that Black "Americans" have supported every single Presidential candidate in this nations history irregardless of the fact they were all White Men.

It does not matter to those people that the "statistics" about "those" people that look like me are not accurate.

It does not matter to those people that the current White man and White woman that are running against that Black man they said they could not vote for, has lied to them, have played on their intelligence and their fears and have offered no real solution to counter what has been going on in this country for the past 8 years.

It does not matter to them. All they see is a Black man that is closer than any other Black man in our history to get a chance to actually sit in the big seat in the big "white" house.

All they see is an "uppity" Nigga that has forgotten his place in our society.

All they see is one of those drug dealers or Dead beat fathers or AIDS carrier and distributor, or felon or even the "big black buck" they have been warning their daughters about.

I have to admit that I am extremely proud of the fact that a Black Man is very close to representing to the world the red hair step child in this country that everyone has but no one wants to acknowledge.

But if that were the only reason I am going to cast my vote for him in November, I would be just as Ignorant as the 40% and the 25% of those 2200 (give or take 1 or 2)people polled.

And contrary to Public opinion I am not an ignorant man.

So to those 2200 people polled and to those that feel just like them, but don't have the balls to admit it, when Mcshame and his almost beauty queen wins in November, all I can say is you get what you pay for. And whatever is the outcome of this election, well, you will get what you deserve. If the country plunges into a depression or if the 2 White people that are running against that "uppity" elitist Nigga, start World War 3, well you bought it so don't complain when it does not fit. It is what you wanted after all. There is no way that that Black Guy you said you could not and will not vote for would have had your interests in mind. After all you didn't have his interests, the country you swear you love so much interests or the people he looks like interests in mind when you voted, now did you?

Ignorance is as Ignorance does.

And White people wonder why people like Josh Howard say they do not believe in this countries National Anthem.

I know why, Do you?

Stay at your own Risk


Monday night in my ethics class we discussed Hurricane what's love got to do with it,Ike. The question that was the topic of discussion was, Whose responsibility is it to help people that refused to evacuate when they had the chance to?

Well, my take on this is, you are on your own.

Let's just say I know a person is going to get robbed and maybe killed in the near future.I go to the person and tell them that they need to get the hell out of Dodge until the threat passes. I offer them transportation to leave, I offer them money for a hotel, I even offer to give them money for food for the entire time they need to stay away. I also tell them that if they choose to stay, I cannot guarantee their safety. I repeat this message everyday up to the day that the deed is going to happen. Everyday the person tells me that they ain't leaving. Everyday I tell them that the threat is real and I am willing to offer whatever assistance I can to keep them and their family safe. They tell me they are going to take their chances.

Well the day comes, and sure enough the big bad robber shows up, destroys the house and the person and their family are forced to hide in the basement or attic until the robbers figure there is nothing else of value there.

I then get a call demanding that I come and save them. The person is irate. They tell me that their children have been traumatized and it is my duty to come and help them.

I calmly tell them that I offered help before and they refused. I tell them they are low on my priority list because I have to get to the people that could not heed my warning. I.E.The elderly, and the physically impaired. I tell them that their house is not the only one that got robbed. I tell them to survive the best way they can and I will get to them when I get to them.

The next day this family is interviewed by all the major cable "news" outlets. They give a tour of their destroyed house and say that I am not doing enough to help them. They cry about how they have lost everything and how they were almost killed.

So who is responsible?

What would you do?

Is it ethically right to help someone that refused to help themselves when they had the chance?

'Look into my eyes'


I am going to admit something to yall...I love watching Vampire movies. I love reading books about Vampires. I don't know why since I do not like Horror films. I think they are stupid. I think killing people in every kind of gruesome way imaginable for no reason and calling it entertainment is just stupid. I believe that a person has to actually have a damn good reason to take a life. Child Molester's, rapists, any fool that doesn't respect the elderly, why are they here? Some people just need to die. I know that sounds kind of bad, but what purpose do these kind of people serve? But killing just to kill is just flat out wrong.

Anyways...

Back to the Vampire admission.

I tried to watch the HBO series "TRUEBLOOD" the other night. Notice I said tried to watch it. I got about 15 minutes into the show and I had to turn the channel. This is a really sick show. It really bothered me. I know that Vampires are supposed to be evil and all that, but this show actually scared me.

Maybe I am just getting old.

I thought I could actually feel the evil radiating out of the T.V. No other movie, book or show,(I like that show on CBS called "MOONLIGHT"), has ever effected me the way this one did.

I don't understand it. Like I said Vampire movies don't usually effect me like that.

I actually had to pray after those 15 minutes. I asked God to forgive me for even wanting to watch some s%^t like that.(I also asked him to protect me through the night. LOL)

What got me was a scene about a women having sex with a vampire. I was like wooo, what the f%%k is this sh%^t?

That was it for me.

I will not allow that show back in my house again.

Am I overreacting?

After all, it is just "mindless entertainment".
I am old enough to know better, but the show still freaked me the hell out.

What are some movies that freaked you out?

It is all in Black and White




The other day I had lunch with one of my co-workers. This is not the first time that I have had lunch with him, but it is the first time that I noticed how different we think. I kind of sorta knew from the jump how this dude thought, but I am the main person that tries to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
Anyways....
We went to a popular food court around the corner from our 'slave' (my ghetto term for my current employment). After the lunch of very unhealthy food we wolfed down, we sat around bullsh&*^ting and checking out the sights.
Yes, ladies that meant we were admiring the many beautiful women that were out and about during our lunch hour. I am still(happily) married (sometimes). But I can still look right? Just so long as that is all I do. In my opinion there is nothing more beautiful on God's green earth than a woman. I have never broken my vows, and it will take a lot more than a big butt and a smile to get me to do so.

Well.... maybe all it might take is for Eva Mendez or Stacy Dash to show some interest in a brother...Let me shut up..

Back on topic...

We were sitting around looking at the women that passed us and we were pointing out to each other what made a particular woman attractive to us. I know that this sounds so high schoolish, but hey, We are men after all.
All the women I noticed were either 'Thick' Black women, 'Thick' Hispanic women or 'Thick' White women. When I say 'thick', I don't mean obese. I mean healthy looking. I mean nice legs, nice butt, and decent sized breasts. 'Track-Star fine' is what I like to call them. All the women I noticed were in different age groups as well.


All the women he noticed were bottle blonds, big breasts, no ass and rail thin. They all looked to be in their early to mid 20's. There was no variety in his search. Well, he did notice one Latina, but Stevie Wonder would have noticed her, she was so fine.

I called him out on this.

His response was that all the women I pointed out would get fat as they got older.
He said that it does not matter what HE looks like in 15 years, but it damn sure matters what SHE looks like. I should have known this because this guy is tapping 41 or 42 on the shoulder and his current girl is only 23. And of course she is rail thin, no ass and blond.

To me this sounds kind of crazy.

I believe that if I meet you and you are the size I like and I am the size you like,whether it be rail thin or sumo wrestler, in order to maintain that initial attraction that obviously got our attention in the first place, both of us need to maintain ourselves.

What it takes to get a person, is what it takes to keep a person.

Or so I have been told.

I told my friend this and all he could say is 'you Black Guys are crazy about big-butts'.

Well I can't deny that.

Who Does that Nigga think he is?

You know the more I think about politricks, I do not understand how any Black person can belong to the republican party. I personally don't see how any person, Black, White, or any other American Ethnic group can blindly follow a single political party.
Period.
Both major parties are full of major KA-KA.
Both major parties only care about power. They will say or do anything they have to say and do to keep getting votes. And being the Country of choices that we are, we steady keep putting the same worthless people in office.
Election after election after election.
It does not seem to matter to Americans that nothing is getting accomplished. No promises are being kept, no schools are getting better, major crimes are still being committed, the justice system is fair from being just, jobs are still being shipped at an alarming rate out of the country, our borders are still not secure, people are still dying from lack of health care, the elderly are still getting bent over and the beat goes on.

But the Repubs are just plain racist and evil.

They do not hide the fact that they could care less about the "lesser" people in this here great country of ours. They are very blatant with their disrespect. They don't even try to court the minority vote. They publicly disrespect all the other major parties candidates, all the while claiming to be "Christians". They refuse to acknowledge that there are poor people that share the same country as them, yet they claim to know what the "average" American is thinking.They claim to want small government, while campaigning that the government needs to be in control of women's bodies or who their fellow Americans can marry or who has the right not to be spied on. They refuse to acknowledge the Accomplishments that the minority's that built this country have made. They think that the more money that the rich friends that put them in office make the better off the country will be. I think they call it the "trickle down effect". They openly mock community organizers, while they beg in private for them to go out and convince their communities to vote for them. They refuse to recognize the sanctity of other nations. They think that America should be the sole beacon of light on this big-ass planet. They claim to want to be free from depending on nations that could care less about American lives, yet the leader of their party is shown on Global TV holding hands and kissing the leader of the nation that the voters in this country want our leaders to stop dealing with.They think that only America has the right to defend itself. They think that the American way of life is supposed to be the way of life for the entire planet. Everyone else that lives on this planet is just backwards and wrong. They think that America has to defend other nations and run to their aid when something goes wrong within their government, while ignoring the fact that our own infrastructure is falling apart.
Correction..

They run to European nations when something goes wrong. Countries in Africa have to fend for themselves.

The democrats are no better.
But at least they act like they care about minorities and poor people. At least they try to court the minority vote. At least they act like they actually believe that 'All men are created equal.' I know it is all an act, but it sure makes a man feel good to think that his government cares. They sure act like they value diversity, I mean look at pictures from their convention and then compare it to the Rethugs convention. I could count on 1 hand how many people of color I saw in Minnesota. It looked like a big-ass Klan rally.But the Democrats on the other hand, well, you would think it was Hispanic Heritage month, African American history month, Support your secretary day or even a Gay pride celebration. Every single minority group was represented. The speeches at the convention in Denver were more heartfelt. The speakers in Denver touched on all the issues that America is facing now.The rethugs convention was all about 'Obama is not ready to lead.' Not one speaker said anything about the state of our country and what they would do to fix it. They spent 3 days bashing Obama. 3 whole days with nothing of any substance.

And they even have the nerve to nominate a "colored" guy with a funny non American name to be their pick for the most coveted job in the world?

Who does this "uppity" Nigger think he is?

You mean to tell me there was not any qualified white men to choose from?

This is AmeriKKKa after all. And this cannot be allowed. It simply cannot be allowed. AmeriKKKa cannot have one of them "coloreds" representing them to the world.

And to prove that, what did their party do?

They nominated a woman with less experience than a high school student to be their nominees running mate. That does not surprise me though, they are constantly saying that the Dems choice, that "colored" guy, who has a Law degree, was President of the Harvard Law review, graduated in the top percent of his class, was a highly popular State Senator and an even more popular US Senator is not fit to lead this country, when the f$%k-up that is running the country now barely finished college.

So I have to ask,

Why?

Why even vote at all? What is going to change? It was proven back in 2000 that votes do not determine who will win. It was proven again in 2004 that votes do not determine who will win.

If my forefathers did not die just so I could get equal treatment in the country they helped to build, I swear before God I would not vote at all. I would not even acknowledge that I am an American. America has never acknowledged me after all.

Michelle Obama said that this is the first time in her adult life that she felt good about her country.

Well Mrs. Obama, how will you feel about your country when your husband gets cheated out of this election that he should win hands down or some Redneck "country first" hard working class Republican tries to kill him?

Things that make you go HMMM....

OLE DADDIO, DADDIO WHERE ART THOU? (YOUR MIND THAT IS)

Yesterday after work I ran into my partner Daddio911. As usual we had a very testy discussion on politics and the current state of things here in our country. He is a die hard, red dyed republican, I prefer not to claim allegiance to any "gang".

A gang is exactly what the 2 political parties are.
They even represent gang colors, Red and Blue.

Anyways...

I do not understand the logic in any Republicans thinking. Or rather the lack of logic.

My man Daddio911 actually thinks old man Mcsane is going to make a good Prez.
Granted, I did my research on old boy,(did you do yours Daddio?)and he does have an impressive record.

But he is OLD.
His thinking is OLD.
His ideas are OLD.
His views are OLD.
The job of being El Presidente in these here divided states of AmeriKKKA will take it's toll on a person.

I mean look at the way it has aged Jr.

Bill Clinton did not have a grey hair on his head until he sat in the big seat in the big office in the big white house.

This man is damn near 100 years old for Christ's sake. And to top it off, he has a history of battling cancer.
This is his last Hoo-raa. If he does not get the job this go around he will not get a second shot. He knows this, so he is pulling out all stops.

The man has got to be senile. Or stupid. Or maybe he just does not care. It is obvious that he does not connect with the average Joe. Why else would he pick this woman Palin to run with him?
Who the hell is she really?
She is nice to look at and all, but with the state of the world and our country, don't you think that he should have picked someone other than a MAYOR of an apartment building, or a GOVERNOR of a decent sized city? To me this is a logical assumption. But in keeping with the Republican illogical way of thinking, he picked a woman whose only claim to fame is that she was an almost beauty queen, and she has a special needs child.

My man Daddio argued me up and down that this could have been beauty queen(she lost the pageant she almost won to a black woman. Did you know that Daddio? It's about the research man!! A black woman winning Miss Alaska! Who would have thunk it?) has more experience than his O-ness.

Give me a F$%^king break!

He sounded just like those talking suits that are constantly on CNN, MSNBC, FIX NOISE and all those Sunday Morning talk shows. He gave me the same arguments that he probably heard on those shows.

Come on Daddio!!

Do your research!!

Read!!

Surf the web if you don't want to read!!

Stop letting other people think for you!!

This is the problem with AmeriKKKans.

I recently did a post called "Sheep being led to slaughter". That phrase describes Daddio911 and all the other close minded fools like him in this country. They cry about all the "freedoms" that we have, but they refuse to exercise those "freedoms". We have freedom of thought, freedom of speech and the freedom to see through the bullshit that Mcsane and his cronies are trying to pull over on us.

If anyone that reads this thinks that our "free" country is better off now than it was before Jr. and his "gang" fu&*ed it up, please feel free to give Mcsane and his almost beauty queen sidekick the opportunity to have access to the little red button in the big office.

While you give away all the "freedoms" that keep you Rethugs up at night bitching about losing,the rest of us that refuse to let other people tell us how to exercise our "freedoms" will vote for the person we think will at least kiss us before we get bent over.

Daddio,

You know I love talking to you about these thangs, but come on man, open your eyes and look at the way our country is.

Stop blaming the Clinton's for all the woes that we are faced with.
Stop voting based on Gay Marriage and Abortion.
There is so much more things that matter to me and the rest of us thinkers (I know we are in the minority).
Things that will not only affect us now, but will affect our Great Great Great Great grand kids.
Things that can be placed at the feet of your gangs leader Mr. George (Jr.)W. Bush.
I know that everything that is wrong with our country is not solely his fault, but like I told you yesterday, he is supposed to be our "leader".
He is the "decider".
He is the Big Bad Boss.
He is the Big Cahoona.

So in being all of the above things, the fault lies with him.

You and your people are just like a person sitting on the commode taking a dump, standing up and looking at it hoping that because it was red yesterday, it is going to be brown today. If it was red yesterday, something is terribly wrong with you.
S$%t should never, ever, be red.
Our countries s$%t has been red for the past 7 years.
Ignoring it instead of going to someone that will help you is not going to make it better.
Voting for a person that has the same bad habits of the person that made our countries sh#$t red, is not going to help us.

At least that is what I think anyway.

I can't wait for your comment on this one Daddio!!

MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT


It just came down the wire that Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter is 5 months pregnant.

Should this affect her becoming McCain's VP?

In a fair world the answer would be no.
Personal business is just that, Personal.
But this is not a fair world.
Especially for a person that literally opened her life up for the world to dig though. Mrs. Palin does not have a personal life anymore. So in my opinion her daughter's underage pregnancy is fair game. Especially for someone that preaches abstinence, thinks sex education is a bad idea and last but not least.... Christian Family morals.

If a candidate can get called on the carpet for getting a $400 haircut, or wearing $400 shoes, something their pastor said or even not knowing how many houses they own, then their kid's underage pregnancy should be admissible.

How can anyone tell someone else to teach their kids abstinence when their own kid is pregnant at 17?

Now, the word on the street is that the girl and her baby daddy are going to get married. How long do you think that is going to last?

Married at 17? Is that good family morals?

And to top it off this woman is getting praised for not letting her daughter have an abortion?

Me personally, I think that abortion is the woman's choice. I don't approve of it, but I have no right to tell a woman what to do with her body. If she feels that an abortion is her only option, then the choice she makes is between her, the father(if he is around) and God. It has nothing to do with Government or me.

But a 17 year old girl that has not finished High School?

If this were Obama's underage daughter, then the people that are praising little Miss Palin and her mother,would be asking (loudly)how can Obama be ready to lead this country, if he cannot lead his own household?

And this woman is saying how proud she is of her daughter, for having sex without protection in a state that leads the rest of the country in cases of teen age cluemedia?

Come on now Mrs. Palin!!!

You expect us to believe that you are proud of your 17 year old daughter getting pregnant out of wed-lock?

You are supposed to be the "perfect beauty queen mother", and yet you did not know that Little Miss Thang was pregnant until she was 5 months along? How can I expect you to be able to tell me what is going on in Russia, when you don't know what your daughter is doing in her bedroom, in your house?

How can we expect you to be able to set an example to the rest of the world when your own Kids don't listen to you?

These are a few questions I would be asking if I was in Obama's camp.

But as you know I am not in his camp.

I have just seen on CNN where his O-ness said that a candidates family was off limits.

When is this cat going to learn?

Nothing is off limits in a street fight, and this is exactly what this is, a down and dirty, ball's kicking, throwing dirt in the eyes, biting, hitting with 40 ounce bottle, street fight.

Win at all costs.

Is that not the American way?
