I am Legend

That's right folks, I am officially a part of history now.

What am I talking about?

Well, I about to tell ya.

I have cast my vote for the first Black Man to be nominated to the most esteemed office on the face of the earth.

That's right my little chick-a-dees..

I have early voted for Barack Hussein Obama.

Even if my man does not win, I can tell my Grand Kids that I participated in this historic event. This is the most important election in United States History, and I was a part of it.

I am damn proud that I was alive to be able to do this. I never thought I would see it happen in my lifetime, and I am only 35 years old. I can imagine what my grand-parents are thinking.

Even though his O-ness was not my first pick, he is my pick now.

I do not know if he will win, I still think that the rethugs will pull a fast one, but at least I did my part.

It just makes me feel good to say that now maybe the world will stop judging us (Black men), by what the "news" outlets and BET show them.

There are millions of (Black) men just like Big O, and now that we have one on the world stage, maybe... just maybe shit around here will be a little different.

I know that Barack is not The Black man's savior, but now at least all those little kids that have no hope for the future can look up and see this Black Man that looks like them, their father,their uncle or Grandfather sitting in the big seat behind the big desk in the big white house and say, 'I can do that too'.

The Audacity of Hope....

Yep, today was a good day.

No matter what happens.

Diary of an "unreal" American

Ok.

According to the the Almost Beauty Queen and her pimp Mcsane, People that live in urban areas are not real Americans.

People that live in Urban areas do not have the same love for this great country of ours than the good working class people of say, Western Pistolvania.

Those people in Rural Virginia are the real patriots here in America.

Those people in Rural Ohio are the only ones that bleed red, white and blue.

The only people that are real americans are the ones named Billy Bob, Joe the Plumber, Tommy Sixpack or Suzy Homemaker. The ones of us with names like Jaheem, Tyrone, Lacreatia or Chardonnay or not "real Americans".

Never mind the fact that according to the constitution of the WHOLE United States, not the Constitution of Western Pistovania, or Rural Virginia or Rural Ohio, says that all it takes is to be born here.

It makes me think that Mcsane and his bitch (yeah I said it) and all the other people on his side of the fence named Joe the Plumber, are implying that the only people that can really call themselves "REAL" Americans are born White.

I could be wrong about that, but I don't think so.

Mcsane said at a rally the other day in Western Pistovania, (which if you know anything about Western Pistovania, it is straight lily white, redneck, KKK, Nigga don't get caught here after sundown country), That in his opinion they are the epitome of what America is. They are the example that the rest us that were born here should strive to be like. He said this after the Senator from that same state said that the people that live there are the most racist and intolerant of other cultures in the entire state.

That senior Senator said this about his own state.

But according to Mcsane, this is the "real" America?

The part of America where people wear t-shirts, that say "Nigga Please. It is called the 'White' house?"

The part of America where people say things like, 'if Obama is elected he will give special privileges to the negras'?

The part of America where people say things like, 'Obama & his wife, I'm concerned that they could be anti white?'

This is the "real" America?

So does this make me and my ancestors foreigners?

To tell the truth about it, I would rather be a foreigner. I cannot and will not support and acknowledge the "real" America if the "real" America does not support and acknowledge me.

Out with the old.... In with the new.


While I was blog surfing this weekend, I came across a post on one of my favorite sites, POLITOPICS. The author of the post, Mrs. Angela Winters, pretty much said everything I am going to say, but I am still going to add my two cents to her good observation.

Jesse Jackson cannot keep his nose out of Obama's business. I just don't understand it. He has no authority to speak for the Obama campaign, he even said that he is not a confidant or advisor to Obama. He is only a "supporter". So my question is this,
Who the hell does he think he is to fix his mouth to say anything about what the Obama administration will do when it comes to foreign policy? Why is he making comments on how the Obama administration will handle this country's position with Israel?

Why?

This is the same man who a couple of months ago said he wanted to cut off the O-NESS'S royal family jewels.

The same "leader" that called Big O out his name by calling him a Nigga, which was caught by Fox News of all places.

The same man who had a mock "funeral" for the very same word after he gave a speech on how derogatory the word is.

So after all this, and after he admitted that he is only a "supporter" of his O-ness, what gave him the right to say anything about something that he admitted he has no knowledge of?

Damn.

How do you think Fox Noise, Rush Limpdick and all the other "country first" assholes are going to spin this?

If the polls are correct, and everyone that says they will vote for Big O actually does when the curtains are closed, then the only thing that will stop him will be getting caught with a live boy or a dead girl in his bedroom.
But still the nerve of this dude.

Is Jesse Jackson still relevant?

He had his run. It did not work out for him. White Folks despise him. The same white folks that Big O is going to need to go against the grain of America and put a Black man in the White house. Because Stevie Wonder can see that Obama will not and cannot win without White Support.

He does not need any distractions.

Jesse Jackson is a distraction.

He is a reminder to most White Americans of their ancestors hateful history towards Black Americans, and White People, just like everybody else, do not like to be reminded of bad past experiences.

Especially experiences they want to forget.

It is just like your spouse bringing something up that you did months ago to hurt them at every chance they get.

Something that you thought was dead and gone.

That is Jesse Jackson.

The scornful and hurt spouse.

Or in his case, the EX SPOUSE

Country is as Country does

I hate anonymous comments. If you have the balls to criticise someone else, have the balls to own up to your statement. Or keep your punk bitch ass off of other people's blogs and start your own.
Then you can be anonymous, alone and hateful all you want.

I just had to get that off my chest.

Wooosa... Wooosa..

I'm back.


Anyways....

Last night in my Advanced writing class, I noticed that I am just as bad as believing stereotypes as the next man.

I actually felt bad once I realized what I was thinking about one of my fellow "brothers".

We had to give presentations about a business proposal that our individual groups had to come up with. Well this dude's little group's presentation was on home security systems.

Before I get into that let me tell yall something.

Everyone that has blessed me by frequenting my little ole blog and giving me the privilege of sharing my views with you, know that I live in Dallas, TX (well a southern suburb of Dallas,TX.)

But I am not from here. I am from the East Coast. My family is all up and down the East Coast, from North Carolina to Maryland,(the DC area) across to Philly and 2 hours further North to Brooklyn.

Anyways.. I have that East coast accent. At least I get told that everyday. When I open my mouth you can tell I ain't from here. I don't try to sound different, I just do.

Well.. Back to my man in class....

This guy is straight up from Texas. He talked like he had a mouth full of mud. Slow and realllly back-woods. Country as hell. He talked just like he was straight from the cotton fields of 1860. He was very knowledgeable on the subject of his presentation,but I found myself thinking why did they have this country-ass bumpkin talk? Who would give this guy a chance if this was a real business proposal?
I found myself not listening to what he was saying, but how he was saying it.

Why do Southern people sound so dumb and uneducated when they talk? They sound lazy to me. They sound so slow. (This includes my White Brothers as well as my Black Kin folk.)

I know this is wrong. I know that the South has some of the best schools in the the nation. I know that my people here are not dumb, uneducated or lazy. I know my people here are far from slow. This is a misconception that I think everyone has about the South. These people here will f%^ck you up quick if you get out of pocket.

But I could not stop thinking this about ole boy. I am not trying to put myself out there like just because I from the North-east side of thangs that I am better. Lawd knows I am not. But the way he talked just irritated the hell out of me.

I felt so bad about thinking this about dude.

I still feel bad about thinking like that. He is a real cool cat. I just don't think his group should have chosen him to be the speaker for their presentation.

I know I'm wrong.

So let the hating begin.

But if there are any anonymous comments.... I swear before my Lord and Savior..

Wooosa... Wooosa

Welcome to the Island of Red

Sometimes I think I might be a little too damn smart for my own good.

I have the ability to see through BullShit.

I have the ability to know when a person is full of shit, and when a person is being real.

Usually God keeps the Bull shit ass people away from me.

Usually...

But occasionally one happens to slip through.

Anyways....

I start this post off like this to make a point. Most Americans don't have my special ability. I should be on that show Hero's. Or maybe I am a mutant. Who knows?

Example....

Mccane....

BullShit. My special sensors go off like crazy when ever I hear this 200 year old man talk. How can anyone not be able to see through this man's shit? How can you call yourself a "Maverick" when you have aligned yourself with the worst President in our Nations History? How can you say that you will put a stop to lobbyist control over Washington, when most of the people that are running your cam pain is(are)lobbyists?
How can you call yourself a man of the people when you don't know how many houses you own? Why did you suspend your campaign to go back to Washington to "help" your colleagues with the cough(bullshit) bail-out plan, only to get there and not say or do anything of substance? And then you are supposed to be the leader and all, but they still said f-you and the bill failed? To me and my special ability this man is just like Kryptonite. I just can't stand him. Hearing him just makes me feel weak. Sometimes I have to pray just to make sure his bullshit did not effect me in any way.

The Almost Beauty Queen...

Bullshit. Listening to this woman is just like being tortured. I mean the kind of torture where someone dips your jibby in honey and ties you butt booty naked ass naked from a tree in a field full of fire ants. If you have been paying attention the last couple of weeks, then you know what I am talking about.

Politricks...

Bullshit. Both parties treat us like we are 3 year old children. Neither side will answer a question directly. Both sides are responsible for this mess our country is in, yet both parties are pointing fingers to each other. Accountability is something that is not a part of either party.

People that constantly make excuses on why their particular party is always right.

Bullshit. I do not understand for the life of me how any man or woman can blindly follow one point of view. I believe God gave us a brain. A brain to think, to analyze, to decide, and to question. Then we should use our brain to decide what is best for us. We should not use our brain to listen to what someone else says is good for us.

Yes Folks, I think that if more people had my special ability the world be a much better place.

Sometimes it feels like I am on an island all by myself.

We got your Black Ass now!!!


JUICE,

You know you done f$%ked up right?

You could not leave well enoungh alone.

You got away with killing Mr. Charlies daughter and his nephew and you just could not leave it alone.

You had to stay in the spot light.

You thought that you were invincible.

Now look at you.

You are finally on your way to share that cell with Bubba.

I told you back in September that you were going to see Bubba soon.

I told you back in September that you were not going to be convicted of breaking into some fool's Hotel room, that you were going to be convicted for killing Mr. Charlies daughter and his nephew.

I told you that Mr. Charlie was going to get some get-back for the slap in the face you gave him.

And what happened?

You got slapped with the same glove that Johnny C described when he said (god rest his soul) most elogantly, "if it don't fit, you must acquit!"

The same glove that got you off the first time, 13 years ago to the day.

Life is a bitch huh, JUICE?

Well is it fitting now, JUICE?

You dumb-ass Nigga.

Who the hell Is Joe Sixpack? Do you Know him?

OK.

I watched the debate last night and I have to give it to the Almost Beauty Queen. she did not F%^k up.

Too Bad.

Hammering Joe did a damn good job. He did not elaborate on how dumb his opponent was (which I would have done). He stayed on the message that His O-ness has been on from the jump. He was not condescending, he was respectful and he knew his bizzyness.

His opponent on the other hand....

Not an original thought.
You can tell that the "debate camp" worked, because she is a damn good memorizer. She hit on all the Rethug talking points. The only question that she answered was if she supported Gay marriage. Other than that she did not stray off her well beaten path once.

She did come off as down to earth and neighborly, which I guess was the whole point. She came off as someone that "Joe Sixpack" could go hunting with.

Just for my own information.. Who the hell is Joe Sixpack? Is this another code for White People?

But is this enough to be able to sit in the seat next to the big seat in the big white house?
Is this all the American People want is someone they can go hunting with?
Someone they can go get drunk and wild with?
Is this what our country has come to?
What happened to being knowledgeable of the world?
What happened to being educated?
Where are our standards?
Why do we advocate education and accountability to our children all day every day, just to go back on all that to vote for somebody that we feel comfortable getting drunk with?

Damn.


I got a couple of Partners that I go to the club with, drink with, shoot pool with, you know doing "Joe Six Pack" type shit. But I would not want these cats in charge of mowing my lawn let alone in charge of running my country.

Me personally I do not want someone that is supposed to be representing me and my views to the rest of the 'educated world' to be "cool".
Or "Folksy".
Or a C Student.

I want them educated. I want them to be able to talk to other educated heads of state without sounding like a stupid Hic. I want them to be able to negotiate with other countries on my behalf without having to have cue cards or an entourage of smarter people around them.

In other words I want them to be the smartest person in the room.

We have had the "cool" guy for the past 7 plus years, and look where we are...

Are the "Joe Sixpacks" in the good ole U S of A really that damn naive?

Lawd knows I hope not.

Don't fall for the Okie Dok!!


Palin has difficulty naming court case she disagrees with

From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney


Couric interviewed Palin last week.
(CNN) — Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin had difficulty naming a specific Supreme Court case she disagreed with besides Roe v. Wade in a long-awaited clip CBS News aired Wednesday night.

The comments, first reported by Politico, came in an interview with CBS News anchor Katie Couric taped last week.

"Well, let's see. There's –of course –in the great history of American rulings there have been rulings, that's never going to be absolute consensus by every American," Palin said. "And there are–those issues, again, like Roe v Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know–going through the history of America, there would be others but–"

"Can you think of any?" Couric interjected.

"Well, I could think of–of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level, maybe I would take issue with," Palin responded. "But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a vice president, if I'm so privileged to serve, wouldn't be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today."


What the fuck did this crazy woman just say?

Or am I the only one that read this shit and was like, what?
Am I the only one that had to go back and reread this dumb-ass statement? Like 3 or 4times?
How did this woman get to be a governor of one of America's States? Even a state with less people than most large cities?

I have heard people on my job talk about how this woman has just as much experience as his O-ness.

What?

Have you ever heard Obama spit out some gobley-gook like the above statement?

This is a simple question...

'Can you name any Supreme Court Cases that you disagree with?'

'Well Katie let me see. There are several that I have a problem with, but just off the top of my head I would have to say Brown V the Board of Education. This is a case where the Supreme Court trampled all over the rights of the Hard Working Citizens of Kansas, by allowing those Minorities the right to attend the same school as the your kids or mine. I strongly disagree with the ruling in that case. This is exactly what we are dealing with in Pakistan and Iraq. And if given the privilege to serve this great nation, Senator McCain and I will put those people back where they are supposed to be. We can ill afford another attack on U.S. soil like 911.'

Of course I joke, but you get the point right?

Any 8th grader can name at least one Supreme Court Case that they disagree with.
And this woman could not?

I am beginning to believe that this is all a ploy. There is no way this woman could be this damn stupid.

I think that this is a Republican plan to distract the people away from what's really going on. There is no way that they would have allowed Mcsane to pick somebody like this without a plan.

This is the party that got Jr. elected. Twice.

That's why I think that Biden better not under estimate this woman tonight during the debate. There has got to be something more going on.

It is the ultimate boxing strategy.

Distract with the right then... POW!! Left cross to the jaw, and it is lights out.

What better way to get people to drop their guard than to feign being stupid?

Biden, keep your hands up.
Focus on her face, not on her footwork. Keep your distance and don't let her get too close. You are damn near 63 years old for Christ sake, I hope you are in shape for this. You cannot afford to go 10 rounds with Mrs. Barracuda. Knock her ass out quick, then go home and drink your Geritol.

I'm just saying....
