I volunteer at church teaching 5th grade kids on wednesdays. I found this past wednesday pretty darn hilarious. In a way i was encouraged and in a way i was a little distubed. lol. These dudes are pretty informed on the president. I tried to shut 'em up but they weren't having it. "Isn't it weird that his middle name is Hussein and his last name is Osama"... "He's going to tax people based on how many miles they drive and charge for using carbon"..."He's a muslim"..."Why do people worship him, he hasn't even done anything yet". These are just some of the comments they had. The muslim one i had to clear up pretty quickly but other than that, i really didn't have much defense for our genius president. I was a little happy that at least the kids having been indoctrinated...yet. Well they all live in surburbia Houston, so that's not saying too much, maybe.
Here's what I don't understand, why is CNN doing another round of 'Black in America"? I thought we have a black president now so we don't need to worry about all that stuff. Why does it seem that people, especially liberals, are so obsessed with race? For God's sake, get over it. It's just one aspect of an individual. And anytime someone on our side criticizes them, they call us racists. Well give me your best shot. It's silly for CNN to keep doing this and pandering to something that has been pandered to for far too long. It's so stupid that black people keep encouraging this (not speaking out against is the same thing as encouraging). Everytime you hear "Blacks in America" whine about how they feel different and blah blah blah. Well when you continue to want to seclude yourself by shows like this lame, idiotic, liberal panderism ofcourse you'll continue to feel like that. I've really just had enough of the whole liberal/race issue. Seriously, seems to me that the only people that talk about race is liberals. All the whole race baiting and race and minority pandering needs to stop...seriously. Or my black people in America will continue to be in the same place they've been since the Great Society
Yeah, yeah, yeah...so the president's speech was all smoke and mirrors. The only thing i'll say is it's not what he says, it's what he does. Anyhow, I am a Bobby Jindal fan, especially after he spoke at my graduation but that was pathetic...with all due respect to my man. It sounded like he was telling a story to little kids. I couldn't stop laughing after the first minute and then it wasn't funny any longer. But I dunno what to say about that but that was no party for my man from Louisiana! You know i'm already thinking it...yeah, Cuda might have done better. But it's all for the better, don't wanna be following The One.
Lately, i've gotten kind of hooked on History. For part of my senior year in college (last year) i kept on wishing i took a minor in History...too late. But I've been reading on some history, Great Depression, Calvin Coolidge, Hoover, FDR, and American History in general. I've also been doing some readings on some other history including Nigeria but a lot of Hitler, Lenin and Stalin. Some pretty interesting stuff in this area. I was flipping through the channels last night and I ran into a documentary on Hilter and Stalin, i forgot the title but it was really good. And then after they went through a little history on the actual Valkyrie and then went into the setting of the movie with Tom Cruise. Anyhow, i feel that i'm about to get hooked to the History Channel. We'll see how it goes!
Big ups to Slumdog Millionaire. I saw the movie over the weekend...I didn't expect it to be like that (not that i expected it to be bad) but it was really good. I have to say that the Indians did their thing! And then they ran through the oscars which i really didn't watch but that's the word on the street. Big ups to Bollywood!!! Next stop.....Nollywood (nigeria)! I can't wait. lol We'll see.
Seems like the attorney general is the only coward around here. Being that america just elected the first black president who hired the first black attorney general, following two black secretary of state...and newly elected black head of republican party. What a joke. Honestly, i feel sorry for those guilty white liberals who thought voting for Obama will kill the talk that they were racist and that they owed black ppl something. I honestly knew it would only get worst as we've seeing from michelle obama, rev wright, and now eric holder. Basically the 'honest conversation' he wants to have is that whatever he says goes. He along with his black liberal race baiters are the only ones that are cowards and refuse to have a real conversation about race. As a matter in fact, i'm sick of talking about race, that seems to be the only thing liberals want to talk about. I wonder how they don't get sick of obsessing over race, for goodness sake, it's just a bloody skin color...grow up! While the rest of us continue with our lives, al sharpton and the rest of the race baiters will be waiting in line for their retribution checks they continue to collect. Hopefully Newscorp and NY Post don't give in once again or this behavior will never stop!
My favorite part: "I can't even be at a bar anymore if they have the news on," said Chicago native and small business consultant Jarell Brown. "Obama gives a speech on the economy and people act like my team just won the Super Bowl. I didn't even vote for the guy. I'm a Libertarian."
Second favorite part: As of press time, the nation's Arab-Americans have reported no discernible change in all the angry, reflexive scowling.
I love this. By the way, this isn't real but i have experienced some awkward behavior. People automatically think I like the guy b/c i'm black. Couple of days after the election, someone i know (white) said it's a great day right? I was trying to figure out why it was a great day? I had a long day at work and we were just sitting at an event. Ohh, she's one of those typical obama voters and assumed i was one as well. I turned her beam off pretty darn quick by saying, "yeah, i guess it's cool". She seemed hurt. But i did love that article.
Also, regarding the Arab-Americans line, i think the president going by his name (according to Ann Coulter) would help out with that one...think about it B. Hussein Obama. I'm sure we'll have an influx of Hussein babies!
So is this the change we can believe in? Apart from the spending bill, it's becoming unbecoming. So the third nominee with Tax problems. How ridiculous! First we got bill richardson, tim geithner, Daschle, and now that Nancy chick that was supposed to be the chief performance officer. Apparently she wasn't performing too well on her taxes. This whole shabang seems less like hopenchange and more like corruptionNtheft. Between the corruption of nominees and the "spending" bill that intends to steal money from tax payers. What a shame. I can't wait til a tax debate comes up! It's going to be great! You can imagine, "how do you want to raise taxes, when you don't pay them". "Corruption We Can Believe In...Yes We Can"
The game last night actually turned out to be a pretty good one, although it started a little slow. I was rooting for the Steelers and they won!
Can we PLEASE not politicize football!! I mean, it's the super bowl for goodness sake! People are trying to get away from politics and economy woes. First we have to sit and listen to the fawning interview of the president and then we get the owner of the steelers thanking Obama after they won. Wait, did he call a play or two? Or did he guarantee a bailout if the Steelers go broke? C'mon on man! It's the Super Bowl. Let me enjoy my football. One bright spot, Springsten didn't go rouge and rant on about how great America is now with a liberal as president. Thank baby Jesus!
