All within one weeks time. And your judgement is better then Obama’s? THE ONLY REASON THIS IS A CONTEST IS BECAUSE OBAMA’S BLACK! This topic will be talked about for decades to come.

McCain, Palin and ALL REPUBLICANS are jokes. The problem is, the people they hurt are not laughing. But some of them are stupid enough to be baited by Fox News racists leads and their life time hatred of blacks into supporting the very fools that work against them everyday! REPUBLICANS!

The McCain-Palin ticket is the phrase that reads the same backwards as Bush-Chaney. And no, there’s no “lite” attached. Except that it’s really “Palin-McCain”.

I’ve posted on this in the past and I’ll touch on it again. Americans, a vast majority of white ones at that, are serious gluttens for punishment.

Quite simply, it was the same “undecided” whtie citizens who voted for Bush during the second of W’s terms, who are now being swayed by Sarah “Smile” Palin’s addition to McCains ticket. This Palin “VPILF” crap appeals exactly to what McCains strategist are counting on. The immaturity of the American White Male that thinks with their libido and not with their brains…

Not talked about in serious context, George W. Bush is a perfect case study on the adolescent mindset of the 21st Century American White Male. Take a look at what types of roles/stars are revered by this segment of society in todays movies . Adam Sandler. Jim Carey. Chris Farley. Owen Wilson. Ben Stiller. Jack Black. Vince Vaughn. Will Ferrell. All White Males who play(ed) characters who have not quite grown up yet, though their clearly in their 30’s/40’s. These guys movies are all about connecting with this segment of the American population.

Fox News knows what makes these guys tick. Want their attention? Get it with a “hot babe” as your talking piece. Doesn’t matter if she has no substance. As long as she’s articulate, “hot”, nice rack AND there’s no internet dirt on her, she’s good to go. “We’ll give her the talking points and she’ll deliver the ratings… No experience par for the job needed.

Our media had the gall to criticize China for replacing the not so pretty 7 year old singer of the opening Bejing Olympics with one that fit their idea of what was pretty.

China’s official stance was, ““The national interest requires that the girl should have good looks and a good grasp of the song and look good on screen”

Where’s the medias criticism for the GOP’s 21st Century model for success: “The national interest of the party requires that the woman should have good looks, a good grasp of “Republican propaganda crap” and look good on screen.”

And Palin hits the spot.

As the Chinese replacement “lip synced” the words to “Ode to the Motherland”, Palin will speak pre-rehearsed republican propaganda about liberals, religion and taking America Back into a mic.

My question is; taking back American from who? Your own party that has F’d things up the past 7.5 years?

You can put lip stick on an elephant, but it’s still a big ole stinking elephant. Hows that!

Having been born and raised in Gary, Indiana (1st 18years), I’ve lived in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area since June 2001. The similarities between Indiana and North Carolina are in most instances subtle, and in some instances striking.

Indiana, Northwest Indiana in particular, has suffered greatly due to the global economy, primarily through the loss of blue collar work in steel mills and manufacturing.

The Raleigh-Durham area is positively affected by it’s proximity to Research Triangle Parks Biomedical and Technology focused industry. These industry’s and the major banking industry presence in Charlotte has allowed both the Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte job force in North Carolina to avoid being negatively affected by the global economy.

However, rural North Carolina has been devastated by the effects of the global economy. Free trade agreements have negatively affected both North Carolina and Indiana with respects to jobs being lost to cheap labor located in places foreign to US soil.

How fitting is it that the two primary’s that I believe will decide who gets the Democrat Presidential nomination are the Indiana and North Carolina primaries.

The North Carolina voter has a unique paradox because it ecompasses voters who have not only been negatively affected by the global economy but also positively and negatively affected by the US’s global war on terror.

Eastern North Carolina is home to a vast number of US military installations such as:

The Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, NC

Fort Bragg Army Installation near Fayetteville, NC

Pope Air Force Base, Fayetteville, NC

Seymour Johnson Air Force Base

Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Installation

The US Cost Guard Installation in Elizabeth City, NC

The Marine Corps Air Station in Jacksonville, NC

While North Carolina bases have seen an increase in military manpower assigned to it’s bases (thus creating economic stimulus to the communities they surround), they have also had to deal with the loss of life and problems facing soldiers who return with mental and physical injuries associated with serving in the two wars the US is currently involved in, Afghanistan and Iraq.

While Indiana as well as other states certainly are dealing with similar issues, North Carolina is one of the epicenters for these concerns in whole US of A.

That’s actually the way I view Northwest Indiana in the area of job loss to foreign labor; an epicenter of blue collar job loss. In this area, the job losses started in the 70’s. “The Region” (as they call it) has lost, probably, over 100,000 jobs in the steel and manufacturing sectors over the past two decades. I actually believe that 100,000 would be a conservative number.

In some respects, the textile industry in North Carolina has suffered the same plight as the Northwest Indiana industries. Take a look at the following:

  • 1994—> The Uruguay Round’s Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) requires countries like the U.S. to phase out import restrictions on textiles and apparel under MFA over the next ten years.—> NAFTA goes into effect.
  • 1999—> Burlington Industries lays off over 2000 workers in six North Carolina textile plants.
  • 2000—> President Clinton signs the Trade and Development Law of 2000. Thislaw consists of the U.S. – Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA) and the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). Both of these measures improve trade relations between the U.S. and countries in the Caribbean Basin and Africa.—> Shelby Yarn closes three plants in Shelby and Cherryville, North Carolina, eliminating 650 jobs.
  • 2001—> Westpoint Stevens eliminates 1250 jobs in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
  • 2003—> Kannapolis-based Pillowtex closes five North Carolina plants and eliminates over 4,000 jobs. The Raleigh News and Observer calls it “the single biggest job loss ever in North Carolina (Martinez, 2003).”
  • 2004—> U.S. Congress will be debating and voting on CAFTA, a trade agreement similar to NAFTA that includes Central American countries like El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica.—> New York financier Wilbur Ross decides to create new International Textile Group by merging bankrupt Burlington Industries and Cone Mills. The new textile giant is expected to have annual revenues of $900 million (Lunan, 2004).
  • 2005—> All textile and apparel quotas will be eliminated for 148 WTO nations under ATC.

Since 1993, at least 13,000 jobs in North Carolina has been lost in the textile and furniture production industries due to NAFTA. Indiana has lost over 16,000 jobs to NAFTA in the motor vehicle equipment and electric equipment industries.

I dare a news media rep to go to the towns that lost these jobs and ask the ones who have lost their lively hood, if they are bitter because of free trade agreements that Billary Clinton and Dupya have signed into effect during their tenures in the White House.

I’m sure they’ll get an ear full bitterness.

Imagine what it’s going to be like when the soldiers are brought back to the US. The economy is in shambles due to Dupya’s teams financial and political ineptness. Unemployment is already high. Imagine what’s going to happen when these soldiers get back and they can’t find a job.

What if they feel they can’t get a job because of the illegal immigrant effect on the local job market.

A veteran solider is not going to work for or provide “cheap labor”.

NAFTA NEEDS TO BE RENEGOTIATED.

That would be Mickey Kanter. Better hit that Crown Royal hard this weekend Hillary when you visit Indiana.

In 1993, Kanter said:

“Look at Indiana — wait, wait, look at Indiana. 42-40. It doesn’t matter if we win, those people are shit.”

Kanter calling Indiana voters \
But don’t worry. Your buddy George Snuffleuffigus will surely see to it on Sunday that this is successfully debunked on his show. That takes care of ABC. Your friends at CBS will also give you a pass. NBC, not so sure (you know they don’t like you. so you say). Fox, their not important this election year so who cares what they report.

Remember, like I said in a previous post. At least in Northwest Indiana, those people cannot be fooled and they have good memories. If this gets a lot of play this weekend through Monday. Your going to lose Indiana because WE KNOW YOUR NOT GOING TO DENOUNCE KANTER.Kanter calling Indiana voters \

The racist wing of the Democrat Party has been exposed. Thanks Hillary. Howard Dean, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are shaking in their boots right now. They fear (should know) the racist tone of Hillary’s campaign has caused irreparable harm to what they have always come to rely on, the black vote.

They’re wondering, hoping and praying there are enough white working class people, who typically vote for Republicans, who are willing to vote Democrat come election time.

They think this because of Dupya’s tenure in the White House has made so many people in all walks of life so angry.

What will the Democrat Party do if this doesn’t happen?

I have a suggestion. Go listen to some Justin Timberlake. Cry me a river for all I care. Maybe your much sought after Hispanic constituency will/can replace us.

Oh, I forgot, the white working class don’t like them either.

Hillary, you’ve got some serious kiss-a_s’n to do to get me and the black vote back if you steal this nomination.

Do a back flip. Dance to some Ying Yang Twins. Have a press conference and talk about how your such a fan of Three Six Mafia’s music. I have no doubt that you will try something like this.

Make a fool of yourself like you’ve been doing all along. Do whatever it takes to get back into the White House.

Hillary the Bosnia sniper fire liar vs. the authentic Rambo POW.

Campaigning to Rocky soundtracks can’t even compete with Rambo.

Especially with the coveted “white male vote”.

But a message of hope and accountability does.

North Carolina will demonstrate this.

allows one to see that an answer is staring you right in the face. This election demonstrates how the white male vote is the most sought after vote and how it is viewed as the deciding vote . ( I guess it and the “white working class vote)

They could conceivably vote either way, Obama/Clinton/McCain. Some white men hate women so much, but also hate black people. Vice versa. Some are like this, but don’t want a Republican back in office at all costs.

Some are cherishing the opportunity to have a black elected so they can use an agenda to advance their “racism is over”, “slavery happened a long time ago”, “get over it”, “I voted for a black guy”. “How can I be racist?” (though he probably was just caught calling a black the N word in spite) stance. Trust me, you’ll hear that one a lot if Obama wins the Presidency.

And some are just plain fair minded individuals who have listened to all candidates, analyzed their performances in the race so far, and are making a decision without any other influence. ( I do believe that this type of white male exists, like I believe they exist among black voters)

I believe those of us (black voters) who identify with the later need to understand that, collectively, in order to achieve the position as a sought after voter and not one that is just pigeon holed into one category, we must do something that will show that we cannot be taken for granted.

Thats the fear of every candidate right now with respects to “the white working class” or “the white male vote”. Taking their vote for granted.

Obama has to convince them that if he gets into office, he won’t try to give handouts/special attention to black issues. They wonder, will he give away the “house”, so to speak. Will he work to try and make things harder for the working white class or white male either on purpose or for revenge (their real issue with Rev Wrights sermons I believe)? Sure, there are other things. These are just a few examples.

Clinton has to convince them that if she gets into office, there won’t be more scandals like there were in Bill’s tenure as President that caused consternation amongst Americans and partisan grid lock in congress. Concerns like “Will Bill be the next Presidencies version of Dick Cheney (#2 making all the decisions)” or “Do I even want Bill back in the White House?”, or “Can someone who has shown that she can lie about so much actually be trusted with making a decision such as answering a 3am call? Will women take over?

We can do the same with our concerns. Look at what just happened in NY (those officers getting acquitted of killing that guy on his wedding night). Surely the press, which is controlled by white males, won’t take a critical look at this verdict. It will be in the news this weekend, but come Monday, it will purposely be drowned out by articles about Rev Wright defending his sermons.

And they will get away with it. No one will ask Hillary, Obama, or McCain what they think of the verdict. BECAUSE BLACK ISSUES DON’T MATTER.

But if we throw a wrench in this election and subsequent ones, this is the only way for us to be truly respected in the 21st Century.

Just as Obama has demonstrated what we have known forever (that there are viable blacks for every facet of life concerning prosperity in this country), we need to demonstrate as voters that we are viable voters and we cannot be taken for granted.

Folks, a vote for Hillary does not demonstrate this. She has essentially discounted your vote and chalked it up to the Jesse Jackson effect (see her husbands remarks). So has everyone else. The black vote going to McCain ( if Obama does not get the nomination) brings us to the table.

It demonstrates to the Democrat party just how important our vote is to them. THEY CANNOT BEAT JOHN MCCAIN WITHOUT IT(black vote). Whether we stay home or not. ( black people will not be voting in mass or numbers needed to carry Clinton to victory because of her actions this primary season, I can assure you of this!)

I suppose staying home says something. But voting for McCain plays the game. And you can’t win if your not in the game. Your gonna get McCain as your next President if Obama does not get the Democrat nomination. Your gonna get screwed any way.

Hillary the Bosnia sniper fire liar vs. the authentic Rambo POW. Campaigning to Rocky soundtracks can’t even compete with Rambo. But a message of hope and accountability does.

And if Hillary and her supporters think they can convince blacks to stay loyale to them and the Democrat party and vote Democrat this election, they’re sorely mistaken (IF she wins the nomination, that is). The only way that happens is if, gulp, Obama agrees to become her running mate. I hope he never does that. Or, if they find some other viable black to be her running mate.

To me, when you show your “Willie Horton” ways, I’m done with you.
