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!

Essentially, you are the type of person who would actually vote for George W. Bush TWICE if you believe the McCain Campaign:

  1. Decided after the vetting process that Sarah Palin had a 17 year old unwed daughter that was 5 months pregnant and concluded that she was just the quality VP choice needed for him win against Barack Obama.
  2. Knew that Palin’s daughters boyfriend and unborn child’s father, Levi Johnston, had a MySpace page that proclaimed he’s a redneck and “don’t want kids” and decided it was O.K. for him to keep it up and going well after the pick was made/announced.
  3. Decide to (and no doubt through Sarah Palins direction ) tell Johnston to abruptly take the cite down AFTER the press finds out about it and reports on it.

Quite simply, McCain shot from the hip on this decision. The same type of hip shot that Bush did when he choose people like Michael Brown to head FEMA. Or Benard Kerik to head THE FRICKIN DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

McCain nor his people in NO Way knew of these issues when they chose Palin.  I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY SAY.

Republicans are the kings of steer. They are briefing their troops on how to answer questions about Palin. If they bothered vetting Palin in the first place surely they would have decided that she was just too risky a pick in a time when they needed a home run pick. Plain and simple, they did a horrible job of vetting the choice. YOU CANNOT TELL ME THERE IS NOT ANOTHER REPUBLICAN WOMAN OUT THERE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THIS KIND OF BAGGAGE WHO WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BETTER VP CHOICE THEN PALIN!

Take a look at the product the GOP has put out as it’s finest during the Bush Administration:

GEORGE W. BUSH

MICHAEL BROWN

DICK CHANEY

DONALD RUMSFIELD

LINDA CHAVEZ

PAUL WOLFOWITZ

TOM DELAY

ALBERTO GONZALEZ

So many others…

These are the types of people we will continue to have placed in positions of the federal government that affect our very lives if John McCain is elected President.

Forget about Palin’s kids. It’s her political background that links her to the list of fools above:

  • Troopergate
  • Firing police chiefs because town businesses felt he was hurting their business ENFORCING THE LAW!
  • Saying she’s against earmarks when her time as Mayor AND Governor was/is marked by her lobbying efforts for and receiving earmarks.
  • Campaigning for and eliminating funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs and instead spouting off about “abstinence” is enough for teen pregnancy prevention.

Which brings me back to her kids.

Palin has made a political career of spouting off about how she is against abortion and funding in schools that teach teens about safe sex. It’s because of these types of stances that makes Palin’s 17 year old daughter being pregnant because she did not practice absitnence nor safe sex a ligitimate topic for voters know about while conducting their own “vetting” process in choosing who to vote for for President. The very center of the voter vetting process of John McCain now begs the question, “What was McCain Thinking?”

For some reason, Republicans refuse to understand that we are in the age of the internet. You can’t just come out with a press conference or have cronnies go on Sunday talk shows and successfully gloss over factual dirt that is reported on the internet like you could in the 90’s and earlier times. BECAUSE THERE WAS NO MYSPACE AND OTHER TYPES OF INTERNET MEDIA VENUES DURING THOSE TIMES  LIKE THERE ARE TODAY!

WTF are people thinking? HOW COULD JOHN MCCAIN EVEN BE CLOSE TO ANY DEMOCRAT OPPONENT IN ANY POLL NOT RUN OR FUNDED BY A REPUBLICAN THINK TANK? I’m at a loss of words when I read or view news reports that show Obama and McCain are in a tight race. It’s absolutely scary.

It is inconceivable that there are white/black/hispanic/asian voters out there who have been negatively affected by their beloved Republican Parties agenda of “Get Rich or Fuck the Country Up Trying”, who are still EVEN THINKING of voting for ANOTHER Republican to follow Dupya. Let alone those who are lifetime democrats who are also in the same boat.

Gotta deal with it though. Majority rules in this country. Always have. Though the majority is clearly full of fools who can’t stand blacks so much, they are willing to F their children’s future up because they can’t bring themselves to vote for a

Black Guy.

I don’t! Call me blind. Narrow viewed or whatever. Actually, the real word to call my view is a realistic one! Why is it that Joe Lieberman or John McCain rails against us removing troops from Iraq and commenting on how the surge has worked?

AFGHANISTAN WAS THE PRINCIPLE TERRORIST LINKED COUNTRY THAT ATTACKED US! If anything, I care more about us protecting whatever fragile advances we’ve made there then in Iraq. The Lieberman link to why he spouts off so much about Obama’s plan to withdraw troops in Iraq is because he is Jewish and he’s the premier protector of Jewish interests in Congress. He could really give a shit about the United States of America as long as it stays a blind supporter of Israel.

McCains link is to the military industrial complex, which completely controls who he is and what he runs for. That complex has puppet strings attached to McCain. Thats why he seems so “robotic”.

What’s so disturbing is how the main stream media, John McCain and for the most Lieberman are controlled by the same entity. THE CORPORATION.  I have my doubts about Obama on this front as well. But his opponents are exposed so clearly, it’s an easy choice. OBAMA!

Saw the funniest bumper sticker today. It was the typical “W” sticker in dark blue but it had next to the “W”, “orst ever”. How fitting!

Those of us who TIRED of black people making excuses for our race need to jump behind Obama and his call for the black community to be more responsible for their own actions. Though this is nothing different then what Bill Cosby has said on numerous occasions in the past.

Case in point. The very house I was raised in in Gary Indiana was broke into countless times before my parents retired, BY PEOPLE I WAS RAISED WITH IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

They’ve since retired and moved from Gary. They sold the house to my sisters best friend for like $18,000! That’s after 30 years of ownership. Now I find out my sisters best friend has had to deal with some punks doing the following:

  • Fools LITERALLY driving a car through the front of the house (smack into the bedroom that I shared with my brother), back out, drive off while she was chasing after them, and never get caught!
  • Deal with a break in where they took quite a bit of stuff out of the house.
  • A month after the first break in, they broke in again. Because they had trouble getting the big TV out of the house, they decided to F it up by busting it up.

When my parents were still living in the house, I remember becoming infuriated when I came to visit them when I went into the Den room, only to see where my parents had put up a 2X4 barricade on the back door to prevent assholes from kicking in the door and stealing everything or worse, doing something to my mother when my dad wasn’t there. It was like my parents were scared in their own home.

Keep in mind the next door neighbor had guys my age that grew up with me. They didn’t have my back? My peoples back? HELL NO! Why? Because in the hood, fuck a ni__a is the motto of the day.

This is essentially the problem. Places like Gary, Newark, Baltimore, East St. Louis, they know about this problem all too well. I found out that my best friend had sold drugs to the young sister of a dude who had looked out for him when he was younger. It was then that I knew that he was no longer the same guy I had grew to love like a brotha when we hung tight.

People change. Situations change. The guys that got caught breaking into my parents house when they still owned it was a guy I grew up with next door (on the other side of the house), and two other guys that I played with as a kid. It was PAINFULL to learn they had did what they did. It was then that I learned that when people are on that stuff, or dealing in that stuff, friendship don’t mean shit!

It made me turn against G.I.. I’ve never looked at the place in same light since. Before, man I used to get goose bumps when I approached the city limits on I-65. I’d have this excitement in me that only those from G.I. understand. Then, it was gone.

I’ve been back twice in the past 3 years. Each time, I certainly did not have that feeling. Nor did I have the desire to see people that I certainly would have looked up in the past. It was fitting that both times, I was in the area for funerals. Maybe I just grew up. I don’t think that was it.

Now I don’t want to pile on Gary, like the racist ass whites who fled Gary and purposely have kept their hands around the throats of the city financially since the days of Hatcher do in the Post-Tribune or the Northwest Indiana Times. But I do believe that when Obama talks about how blacks need to start taking more responsibilities for their actions, G.I. is the epicenter and a case study on the topic.

Though I know the institution of racism is alive and well, I am also aware of the penchent for my race to default to identifying with sterotypical descriptions of blacks.

  • “CP Time” (colored people time)
  • Using “you know what I mean” after making a statement
  • Always talking about food
  • Bling Bling is the measure of success
  • Flashiness
  • No snitchin
  • hustlin
  • gettin over
  • saying the word Nigga in public indiscriminately in broad public

We are our own worst enemy. So I say this. Jesse, Barack has the right to ‘talk down” to black folk or “niggas” as you said on Fox. by the way, you know Fox threw you under the bus on that one.

We have to have someone do it. Nas aint doing it. Kanye ain’t doin it. Jay Z damn sure aint doing it. We’ve got to fight the power of ignorance thats in our own community just like we’ve been fighting the institution of racism.

So Obama might just be the next president of the U.S.. While I applaud his position, I also have to signal the need for his black supporters to “wake up and smell what’s brewing”.

I mentioned in previous post how a Barack win will bring about a new type of perspective on blacks in the eyes of quite a bit of White America. The first thought that comes to mind is that since he is articulate (like millions upon millions of other Blacks) and (if) he actually wins the presidency and does his time in the White House, then this will provide a step forward in the area of racial relations in this country.

Then comes: Racism? What Racism”.

This is where the “wake up” comes in. The Obama-Clinton race for the Democrat nomination demonstrated just how much racism is still in existence in this country. It’s true the mere fact a black man can be seen as a viable candidate for the Presidency and receive millions upon millions of votes from white voters is surely a sign that race relations have taken a monumental leap from the year I was born (68).

On the contrary, the venomous campaign approach Clinton used to stay in the race showed just how easily it is to stoke white racist feelings about black men and people in general, and use it as a motivating tool to go against anything that involves the improvement of black people, whether it be in their personal lives or the perception of black life/people in all of the Americas.

Which brings me to this; A blacks ability to advance in this country is going to take a DRAMATIC change with an Obama Presidency.

Expect more heated and intense challenges to affirmative action from whites.

Expect even more scrutiny when the need to use anti-discrimination laws justifiably arise

Expect more charges that blacks are racist towards whites

Expect there to be a perception that everything is level now. We do have a black president, you know…

The days of a Shaq rapping about Kobe (justifiably) and using the n word without receiving heat are gone. Shaq got a taste of that years ago when he mocked Chinese dialect when making a statement about Yao Ming.

Black people, if we are going to cry a hissy fit about a guy like Imus saying the N word or something racist, we’ve got to expect that we need to be held to the same standard.

It’s a unique time for black people here in the U.S.. I for one believe it’s going to be a good, positive change overall. It’s going to be tough. The majority (whites) still and will continue to do things that WE blacks know are racist.

It happens to me at least once a day as a black man. Every singe f_ckin day. Sometimes in small subtle occurances. Other times in ways that simply Makes Me Wanna Holla!

It’s time for us to police our own. We have alot of growing to do within our own community. Our own little Zimbabwe’s and Mugabe’s across the country within our own communities. We’ve been needing a jolt and I believe the Obama experience is and will catapult us into the next episode.

They can’t help it. GOP’ers and “conservatives” (code word for anti-negro) can’t run campaign’s that’s not racist. It’s their core constituency. Since reconstruction, have they ever? NO!

It is time for the U.S. to move ahead to the future. Barack Obama is not a savior. But he is a change that properly represents America’s sentiment that the direction of this country has GOT TO CHANGE! The old hands have used our tax money to surely benefit the few (the upper class).

Whites voting for Obama has nothing to do with them being liberal. It’s like hearing someone scratch a chalkboard when I hear white political commentators like Pat Buchannon tell blacks how they should “see things”. However, my take on why whites have voted for Obama (besides the fact that not all of them are racists or even have a problem with people of color) is that I believe whites are feed up with:

  • The high costs of gas as a result of Dick Chaney inviting the leaders of big oil to white house at the beginning of the Dupya Presidency.
  • The mis-leading of American People in lying (not misusing intelligence) to the American public about intelligence he used to justify the war in Iraq-for the benefit of attendees of Dick Chaney’s energy policy invite to big oil at the beginning of the Dupya Presidency.
  • The falling value of the dollar world wide- caused directly by Dupya Administration economic policies from “trusted, conservative minds”.
  • The housing crisis caused by Dupya and his administrations policy to not push for stiff enforcement of housing regulatory laws THAT ARE ALREADY ON THE BOOKS!
  • The home owner who was not a participant in the “sub prime debacle”, but who is being affected by it- Due to horrendous Dupya fiscal policys
  • The rising cost of food at the result of Dupya’s policy of allowing the Big Oil constituencys agenda to override all others.

These are just a few of the issue’s that white folk have a problem with the regular old beltway players in Washington.

What better way to send the message to their hardcore conservative neighbor then by putting an “OBAMA” sign in their front yard.

Revolution comes in all shades and colors…

Obama is sexist. He’s an inadequate black man. McCain has more experience as a “President”. Obama is not experienced enough. Obama’s middle name is Hussein. He’s a ‘snake oil salesman”.

So…white Democrat voters would rather vote for McCain.

Ask the friend of Carol McCain about McCain (or read about it here):

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1024927/The-wife-John-McCain-callously-left-behind.html

Now, look at yourself in the mirror and just admit who or what you really are. I don’t need to say it. You say it everyday when it’s safe to be politically incorrect.

‘You know what the difference is between you and me?  I make this look good!

Obama fist bump:

A new age of leadership

Vs.

George Bush Chest bump

This is not cool

This is not right

This is should NEVER be done

As you can see, at the very least, the Obama Administration will be a lot “smoother” then the Bush Administration…

Come to think of it, anyone else’s would be more affective.

You heard it here first. Obama has to pick a woman. Picking Sebelius instead of Billary is proper because Sebelius is a woman. Billary is a mess; and a pain in the ass.
