Jared Lee Loughner

The name of a terrorist. The press won’t depict him as such but that’s precisely what he is. He attacked a member of Congress and a judge. He shot indiscriminately at innocent people who I’m sure he and his right wing fans view as “casualties of war”.

Sarah Palin should be viewed as a state sponsor of terror as should Fox News. They instigate actions such as this fools as well as whoever sent those packages to the head of Homeland Security and other explosive packages found at postal facilities. This shooting was an act of terrorism. It’s titled “domestic terrorism” via the F.B.I.. How do I know? When I was police officer back in 1999, I attended a domestic terrorism class that the F.B.I. sponsored that educated law enforcement personnel on the threats that militias fueled such as the Oklahoma City Federal building bombing  and how these groups operated in the U.S.

Fast foward to 2009 when Napolitano, Head of Homeland Security, warned of the radical rights threat to our democracy. The explosive package addressed to Napolitano… how is that any different then the packages destined for Jews in Detroit from Yemen terrorist via UPS and FedEx in 2010? There is no difference.

Jared Lee Loughner has put a face on the threat of domestic terrorism as it exists today and that face is that of a white guy.  Not Arab. Not Black. Not Hispanic.

A recent response to one of my posts has got me thinking. I’ve noticed that essentially every Republican that I know or have come across since I got out the Air Force had never served in the military.

They go to great lengths disparaging people they do not feel are true Americans. While I do not feel that being or having served in the military is a sort of litmus test for what a “true” American is, I often wonder if these wusses (that’s what I truly think of the ones that I meet) have any idea of what service to country really is.

Essentially, they’re the cows that graze off the riches of the land that military members defend.  It’s no wonder the ones who are really in control of the Republican regime (Roger Ailes and Rush Limbaugh) are as fat ass cows (get it…as fat ass cows).

The eptimy of capitalistic gluttony. How Republican of them.

This post serves as a check point and archive of the various racist events that I have witnessed during the Obama Administration which were directed towards Barack Obama.  They speak for themselves…

This depiction of President Barack Obama emailed to other conservatives stating that Obama is an “African Witch Doctor” that will cause the quality of care in the country to worsen, caused it’s creator

Dr. david-mckalip (name in caps intended to show no respect for person)

to issue a statement that he would withdraw from public debate about a public health care plan.

The actual pic that was altered isn’t even that of an African Witch Doctor.  It’s a Papua New Guinea tribesman…

Anyway, this is the first entry, though I will be going backwards towards January 09 to find and post other examples of Digital Jim Crow…

Republican Mayor Sends Hilarious “Not Racist” White House ‘n Watermelon Joke

Watermelon patch in the lawn of the Obama White House

The Mayor joked, “No Easter Egg Hunt this year.” Ha ha, because Muslims don’t celebrate Easter, right? (Sure, they celebrate Good Friday, but anyway ….)

Ousted Staten Island education official apologizes over racist e-mail

Mock Photo Strip sent by Salvatore Ballarino

The e-mail, which Ballarino forwarded on Jan. 4 to about 30 people, depicted a photo strip of a mock debate between Barack Obama and John McCain that was rife with racist jokes about black people, including comparisons of African American babies to excrement.

GOP candidate wins despite racism flap

audra-shay-young republicans-facebook-03_233200859004

Thirty-eight-year-old Audra Shay’s campaign to become the next chairman of the Young Republicans went from obscure to infamous over the past week, after The Daily Beast revealed details of posts of her Facebook account. Specifically, a thread where one of her friends posts that “Obama Bin Lauden [sic] is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals,” and Shay responds eight minutes later with: “You tell em Eric! lol.”

“This is an outrage and I CAN NOT believe this nation has him as our leader! It makes me sick!” She posted a few minutes later: “My disdain for Obama is directly proportionate for his disdain of this country.”

To view more intelligent statements from this “young” 38 year old Republican leader, go here:

She is the second coming of George W. Bush when it comes to properly representing Republican Ideology.  Unlike someone like Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin is an easy smack down. Just let her have a press conference and watch her make no sense at all, Ala George Bush AND Bobby Jindal.

When it comes to Republicans, gender is no issue in the area of ineptness. The men are as inept as the women.

Self destruction.

Sanford (Liar). Ensign & Sanford (Cheaters) Now Palin (Quitter).  Boy you Republican voters sure know how to pick em’.  Your a train wreck of a party right now. The Detroit Lions of the political world. The pimple on the arse of the Elephant that is your logo.

The three adjectives in the parentheses best explain what you fools really represent. The truth has finally reared it’s head.

You lied to the country about weapons of mass destruction to please your business constituents/interests in getting us into a war (Iraq). AND you lie to your constituents in telling them that your hiking the Appalachian Trail while your really “gettin busy” in Argentina with a skank. On the taxpayers dime…

You cheat on your women and family, though you claimed that your values are better then others. You even bang your best friends wife (see Ensign). You even got strait game in saying that your side chick is really your “soul mate” and your wife is, well someone that you’ll TRY to fall back in love with. Real pimpin player…

And worst, you quit when the going gets ruff. Cut and run. Remember that… (See article below)

Quitters take toll on GOP

You quit on your constituents by resigning office (Palin) so that you can join Fox News.

Seriously, Fox News is now the new “political reality T.V. network”. Bobby and Whitney ain’t got nothin’ on you guys.

By the way, There’s more to Palin’s resigning. The truth will come out.

Took today off. Thought I’d write and just record my thoughts about this historic day. Will update as the day goes by…

Watched some CNN video of what Kenyans and Egyptians thought about the prospect of an Obama Presidency. It sent chills down my spine. It dawned on me that Obama has a direct connection to people in Africa and white people, but not really black Americans.

I don’t have a problem with this. i don’t think Obama owes anyone anything, But as a country, the US owes Africa plenty. I hope Obama finds a way to effect REAL CHANGE in that continent during his Presidency (IF he wins). One things for sure, McCain, a direct descendent from the reasons the US owes Africa (it’s chronicled how his family was VERY involved in the slave trade), won’t do a damn thing for that continent. In fact, I believe he will do less then Dupya did for the continent of Africa if he’s elected.

The reason I took today off was because after viewing the CNN video interviews of Africans, I got a sense of excitement that came over me. Maybe my people here will take to doing better among themeselves with a black man now President.

I foresee some black males rejecting this type of conversation. But I see quite a bit of them embracing it.  The statement “now is the time for us to get our selves together” popped up in my mind. Why not use Obama’s Presidency myself to motivate me into improving some of the areas in my own life that I know need improving?

I have decided to embrace this concept. It’s probably a good reason that I even wrote this blog. I wanted to record it. If don’t follow through with the improvements, I’ve got this blog to go back to and call myself out.

I know, I know. Those of you who are white (and even black/other) are probably wondering why I would need an occurance of an Obama Presidency to effect such a change. For me to embrace such a change.

I have long been the type that believed that i would hold up my end of the bargain when it came to carrying on the struggle for equality for black people in America. While I believe I have done a pretty good job at that, I certainly see an opportunity to further advance such a cause with the onset of a Black man becoming President and my becoming the best that I can be at being a hsuband, a dad, a co-worker and a friend.

Like other cliche statements, I too never thought I would see this day. I’m only 40. if you had asked me the probability of Obama becoming President a year ago, I would have said NO WAY. I pride myself in being a realist. Though it was clear the brotha had what it took to make it happen, I just never thought I’d see the day that whites in mass numbers would be swayed to vote for a black guy for the President of the United States of America. AND WITH A NAME LIKE BARACK OBAMA AT THAT! This country never seems to amaze. That’s the beauty of it and how great it is!

This goes to show you how much George Bush and the Republicans messed up the past 8 years. They got in there and acted plum fools. Essentially caused significant damage to a Republican Machine that had been, up to now, a well oiled machine in using fear tactics and scapegoat rhetoric as a key weapon in gaining power and persuation among the “white working class electorate”. THEY WERE LIKE KIDS IN A CANDY STORE WITHOUT REGULATION. Their tummy aches will be on display after today (I hope!)

Just got a response from a guy commenting on my post predicting an 8 point Obama victory. He says that “ofcourse I’m voting for the black guy”. I guess he’s right. But the story of this election is not that blacks voted for the black candidate in record numbers (that was a no brainer). It’s that WHITES voted for a black candidate in record numbers.

Just what does this mean? There will be plenty written on this in the future that will provide a clear understanding of this phenomenal occurrence. Maybe it had all to do with Bush and the Republican’s performance these past 8 years.

No matter how you spin it, you guys F’d Up!

Update: 1pm

Some reports via CNN say that a precinct in Wake County NC had some problems. Didn’t say where. Said the ballots were wet and would not go in the scanner. Now how did the ballots get wet? So what it’s raining. I bet you these ballots are the only ones that got wet and that they belong to a South East Raleigh precinct.

Geesh.

Essentially, the election coverage via the internet sucks this early in the game. (My opinion). However, I am finding that the BBC coverage and CNN International coverage is very good. it’s refereshing to see the world take on our election.

Fox News had these slugs on this morning who were just lambasting Obama. I’m curious as to how their ratings have been lately.

O.k., O.k.. It appears the reason the ballots were wet is from the fact that voters themselves are wet from standind in line outside in the rain. The water from their hands and sleeves are more then likely getting the ballots wet causing the problems and not any “funny business”.

I stand corrected… Maybe I am a little paranoid. O.K., After 2000, I way PARNANOID!

It was interesting to see a report out of Virginina that the head of a Library over slept causing the polls open late. The polls at that site should be extended open the exact amount of time the “head librarian” was late to the polling place.

———————————————————————————

Somewhere Harold Washington is smiling. I was young lad when Washington won Mayor of Chicago. I was old enough to understand just what a significant achievement it was for a black man in the city of Chicago to achieve such a feat. The man behind that plan, David Axelrod, did his thing again. Fact of the matter is, Harold Washington was on his way to becoming a fine Mayor of Chicago prior to his untimely death.

Update: 7pm

Had to step away and be a normal person/dad/husband and do some things. Well for the most part, it seems, overall, that things have gone O.K. My daughter is a vollunteer at a local polling place and she text me on her break saying that things had gone pretty smooth so far.

I see FoxNews is up to its old tricks…

This is certainly a desparate attempt to garner some type of attention. Essentially, since the GOP is not the toast of the politics atmosphere today, Fox News has got to do something to show it’s a legitimate news organization. This is not it. (As the interview with the poll manager in the Youtube video demonstrates above)

Now it’s “prime time” and the games really begin. Time to fire up streaming broadcasts of all of the major news sources (to include BBC and Asia Times.com)

What is all of this nonsense about “minority rule” and “blacks taking over”? These types of comments only show just how much preoccupied some white people are with race. A President is a leader of the People. ALL PEOPLE. Not just White people, but every single citizen of this country.

This has been the problem in the past. In fact, I believe that alot of White voters who are voting for Obama don’t have a problem doing so because they feel that Republican Leadership has not been looking out for all people, but just “rich people”.

This is the story of this election. Not the fact that Obama is black, but the fact that whites voting for Obama in mass is a statement that they too had had enough of tax breaks for the well to do. It’s really time for the common man to make some inroads on living a decent life IN THE GREATEST PLACE IN THE WORLD.

Gotta quote Don King, “Only in America. Only in America.”

7:24pm: Fox jut called Kentucky for McCain. We’ll see if that comes to fruition (wouldn’t be a surprise though) ABC shows that McCain has an 8 point lead in Florida and a 7 point lead in Virginia 9with less than 2% of votes counted)

It switched just as quick as that. ABC now shows Obama with a 48% to 34% lead in Florida. I know I can’t do this all night…

Text messages being sent to black voters telling them that they can vote Nov 5th. Facebook messages as well. The tricks of new millenium racial politics…

11:30pm:

OBAMA WINS!

We are getting screwed! The Oil industries are reveling in the Palin/wall street debacle, reaping billions on profits at the pump. How come no one is talking about this? The free market at it’s best i guess. let it run free, get out the way and let the market decide what’s the best price for oil.

Demand? Well O.K., it’s fallen because the U.S. is in crisis mode financially. But a 15 cent drop in the average price of a gallon of gas is not a 40% drop.

US gasoline under $3.50 for first time in 6 months

If these bastards can raise the price 40% because of a Hurricane, they can lower it commensurate to the drop in the cost of a barrel of oil. But they won’t. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS NO REGULATION THAT SAYS THAT HAVE TO DROP THE PRICE.

Remember, these are Dupya’s and John McCains’ boys were talking about. They don’t play that regulation crap.

When will this country wake up! If Sarah Palin has said “I’ve taken on big oil”, then why haven’t you made this (current gas prices) an issue during your campaign speeches? BECAUSE THEY WERE WRITTEN FOR YOU BY PEOPLE WHO ARE PAID FOR BY BIG OIL!
