Nah, I wasn't raised at gunpoint and I've read too many books
To distract me from the mirror, when unhappy with my looks
And I ain't got proper diction for the makings of a thug
Though I grew up in the ghetto and my niggas all sold drugs
And though that may validate me for a spot on MTV
Or get me all the airplay that my bank account would need
I was hoping to invest in a lesson that I learned
I thought this fool had jumped me just because it was my… Continue
WASHINGTON (AP) — Massive legislation to bail out the stressed financial industry is hanging near defeat on the floor of the House.
More than enough members of the House had cast votes to defeat the Bush administration-pushed bill, and the vote was being held open, apparently…Continue
People leave their spouses because they claim that they don't feel love...what they mean is they can't feel passion...can the people of this era really feel love from one another anymore? It's a shame, you see. Why leave someone because you can't feel love from them anymore? The truth is if you really loved them, wouldn't you cling to them like life and breath? Love is not so selfish as to flee from silence. Would you let your own ideals become so shallow as to use… Continue
I'll be posting updates to this blog entry if you want to follow along.
VODKA NOT SMOKING ANYMORE!!! Sort of.
I've been wanting to quit. I can't pull it off. So I'm trying an ePuffer electronic cigarette to help me through. I get the added bonus of 'smoking' in my bedroom while I transition, hence letting me play some games while I get thru it. Work won't let me, even though it's about as 'dangerous' as an asthma inhaler.
The following's a link to a New York Times Editorial Observer article by Dorothy Samuels, published on 25th September, 2008, which alleges that Sarah Palin, while serving as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, along with the town's police chief, Charlie Fannon, signed off of a policy in which rape victims were billed by the town's hospital for the cost of the rape kits used in investigating their cases.
While Palin apparently said nothing about this policy, Fannon, in an interview with… Continue
Contrast: "Republicans believe that government doesn't work, so they become elected and prove it." - Unknown.
We're potentially facing another Great Depression, and it would sure as hell not only affect the United States. If you checked a little bit back in history, the crash of Black Tuesday was very similar to this, and the depression happened as a result of Hoover gambling that the market would straighten it out, and it didn't. FDR then gets elected, enacts the New… Continue
Although the conflict has calmed down a bit lately, it changed the contemporary geopolitical world with consequences for global peace and security. It created a certain shift in European security dynamics, it was a test to the EU security policy and it raised questions about the future of NATO and the role of Russia in future partnerships. Yet there is a lot of misconception about this issue, its consequences, its roots, how it got started, but also why it got started. That’s why first of all… Continue

As President Bush was holding an emergency economic summit at the White House, protesters took to the streets all over the country to oppose a Wall Street bailout. In New York, a series of demonstrations occurred near the Stock… Continue
There are those of us, radicals, who have not fallen under the Obama curse!
while i will not go over our reasons, we know that we see through this puppet who serves his financial masters.
Please give your reasons for believing such, so that we, and others, may learn.
We need to convert people to the independent cause, our cause, our beliefe of believing that he is a fraud, and that any major democratic politician as well as a republican one offers no 'change.'
Got through watching the first Presidential debates a little while ago.
Before I go any further here, three advisory points need to be stated: 1, am an Obama supporter, 2, missed the debate's first ten minutes, and 3, there were times during the debate that I got so excited/angry, what have you, that I missed small parts of the debate.
That said, and as much as I hate to say it, Folks, McCain in some areas came off the better in areas like tax policies, and in some of his… Continue
All over the world Media influences our thoughts and ideas, Including those thoughts about one's own home town.
Media and NEWS stations have a lot of power.
I was curious what kind of opinions are being made based on what one hears regarding the United States of America.
Today I came down to a friend with all my computer stuff. We put it all together, and then suddenly the monitor won't show a thing.. I just thought "erh, WTF? what is going on? at home it worked." I called teh guy who "scavenged" my comp together. I told him the situation. Anf he said my motherboard is gone.. because its already old, with integrated stuff etc.. We connected my monitor to other cmops, and we had to realize, its not the monitor's fault.. So now I'm f*cked. I stay here for 1 day,… Continue
