on premotating & other farce

For me, I think 2007, has been the year of the premonition. But before I go farther. I want to thank all yawls with the birthday wishes and those who purchased books. And I can’t forget my tiger’s pimp slapping Roy Hibbert and Georgetown. To both of the aforementioned, I am still smiling.

But back to premotating, I have premonated (don’t know if either are words but I don’t really care) that these folks, in particular the politicians, may be hitting the pipe too much – for they will say anything to get a vote. Such was even my premise in stupid pet tricks.

Check this: Mitt Romney is a perfect example, and while telling some people a tall tale, he got cold busted. Gone say some shit like he remembers seeing his father as a child, marching along side with Martin Luther King Jr. (I’m trying not to laugh at that shit now). The problem is that it never happened and was completely fabricated. He even said it was just a figure of speech, a metaphor. He was just pretending – make believe.

The Republican presidential said this while making a speech on faith and politics earlier this month in Texas. To quote him, Romney said: "I saw my father march with Martin Luther King."
They say it was the biggest speech of his political career thus far. Titled speaking on “Faith in America” at College Station, Texas.

Jones even started to like the sound of that shit and this past Sunday while on NBC's "Meet the Press." He said, "You can see what I believed and what my family believed by looking at our lives. My dad marched with Martin Luther King." He probably would have kept on saying this if it had not been for some serious investigative reporting by the Detroit Free Press and The Boston Phoenix. Not to mention the eyewitness accounts of one veteran Michigan civil rights activist who told the DFP that George Romney never marched with Dr King.

Trying to cover his ass, Romney's campaign cited a 1967 book written by Stephen Hess and Washington Post political columnist David Broder. They even released a press statement saying in essence; yes Virginia there is a Santa Klaus. King aint even march in Grosse Pointe in 1963 because he was not even there. Not To mention records indicate he was out of the country in some school in Europe at the time he say he saw or heard such.

But what it tells me is that not only is he a liar, but he don’t even know his father that well and aint spend that much time with him if he got to lie for them both. But they got the loot and time to investigate steroids in baseball, but neither of the priors to put themselves in check.

Why are you trying not to laugh? I giggled (and still am) my ass off when I heard this bull. This is why I find it hard (though I do) to know what lie the next candidate is gone tell.'d I miss the b-day? Happy Belated, sweetie!

And have a Happy Holiday!

First, I thought George Bush was the Manchurian candidate, but maybe it's Mutt, I mean Mitt.

I hope you are having a nice Christmas Day!

When I saw him try to explain his way out of that one, all I could do was shake my head.


Though it was pretty darned funny.

Why are you surprised, politics is game where you are allowed to lie, cheat, and steal because the ends justify the means. I never understood why you needed so many people to run for a positions, and why you needed political analyst, that is until I found out the secret. It's all just a game. The Royal Battle if you will, the only prize is to be the last one standing. All morals, values, and ethics go out the window. Politician will turn on each other and eat their young. As for me, I am going to vote for the most ruthless because I know that person will do the job well. This is not a job for Mother Theresa, and integrity and politics mix together like oil and water. Lie your little heart out because the average dumb America will believe it and that's all you need.

I find this to be the very basis of the politics of our time. So he uses this as a means to gain popularity based upon something he didn’t even know about his family, however one of his people read it somewhere in some book? So you want the favor of a people because you pretend to have the “flava” of the people? Claiming that you hang with the same crowd and thus you should be seen as in favor of, in knowing how to relate to such people, yet not one person in your…. Hangin with black folk family ever told you one single thing bout your daddy havin marched with Dr. Martin Luther King? So you just gone take the word of one of your publicists and walk round cliamin to have the same fundamental belief system as Dr. Martin Luther King because you think your daddy possibly may have marched with him?


But this is simply a clear message to let people know that it is goin down as “planned”. Meaning that it is all planned, the candidates just go round pretending to promise you what they would do if they were in office. Don’t anyone ever stop to think that if someone like a president had the power to make it better they wouldn’t have? If they in it for their people then nothing would make them more proud than to know that they put it down for their people and give them better health care, security in social security, less jails and more schools philosophy and all the other promises we hear during the race. And don’t anyone ever stop to think that they own both sides? Well if ya didn’t then maybe you might consider it in the future. I am simply proposing questions…..

The next message I see in this is that we are shown what they think we can handle….. they determine even how much truth one can handle now a days…. The fourth branch of the government I have heard. Fortunately and unfortunately the media finds out the dirts on one person because there always was someone else involved that is willing to sell your story for a buck and some fame. We will know when we take the time to research and develop our own knowledge of self.

And lastly, perception……. One can perceive this article many ways, see the unseen in the scene….. or seen.

Glad to see your post…….

One Love,

all i can say is will come out, so it pointless for these fools to lie.

Nicole said...

Most liars believe in maintaining the lie at all costs...they figure if they tell it long enough and convince one person, it becomes true. He was also arrogant enough to assume no one would question him.

I just watched a Scarface marathon (the rapper not the movie) on MTV Jams, and forgot about the song "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Ganstar"

I say all that to say, at then end they had a message from President Bush 1, on why it felt good to be a gansta. Re-visit it, because it's so true.

"And now, a word from the president!
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
Gettin voted into the white house
Everything lookin good to the people of the world
But the mafia family is my boss
So every now and then I owe a favor gettin down
Like lettin a big drug shipment through
And send em to the poor community
So we can bust you know who
So voters of the world keep supportin me
And I promise to take you very far
Other leaders better not upset me
Or Ill send a million troops to die at war
To all you republicans, that helped me win
I sincerely like to thank you
Cuz now I got the world swingin from my nuts
And damn it feels good to be a gangsta"

All they do is lie. All of 'em.
