I’m not talking about the Iraq War, I’m talking about the Mexican-American War. And the person I am describing is not Barack Obama, it is Abraham Lincoln. The other tall skinny guy from Illinois (I know Lincoln was born in Kentucky-Obama was born in Hawaii). I know that one was a Republican and one is a Democrat, but the Republican Party then resembles more of what the Democratic party does today. Somewhere along the way they switched ideals. I am aware of the differences, but chose instead to highlight the similarities. For one simple reason; and that’s to show that it can be done.

The question of race has been on people’s lips a lot lately. What with a Black Man (at least half), having a actual shot at the presidency. The tension and drama in the air, is old and boring for the most part. My generation saw to that. The ties that bind us are more important. Our culture differences are all but fading. I myself am a perfect example of that. A Black Man, that at thirty years old is more into Flogging Molly than 50¢. I have always stood on the cultural fringes, but now I am not so much an anomaly for my personal taste or my musical ones. Over the last decade I have watched more and more Black kids appear at punk (and other wise alternative) shows. On the same token, most hip-hop shows are 50% white these days. The distinctions of a black and white culture are nearly gone. Continue reading Miscegenation
Hillary is on the attack! Wait for it, she just may cry again. After the water-works trick worked so well in New Hampshire, she tried it again before Super Tuesday, and I suspect we’ll see more tears before Texas and Ohio. She’s holding up boxing gloves and accusing Barack of everything from stealing speech lines to copying her economic plan. Her campaign has contacted CNN and complained that she’s being unfairly scrutinized while Obama is getting a free ride. These juvenile tactics aren’t going to work. Does she really think we’re that gullible, or is she simply that desperate? According to a February 12th New York Times article, “She has to win both Ohio and Texas comfortably, or she’s out,” said one super-delegate who has endorsed Mrs. Clinton, and who spoke on condition of anonymity to share a candid assessment. Continue reading Strike Back!
Basically this when it all goes down. The big show, that will make or brake the candidate. Those that when here go on to take the nomination. So many delegates are awarded that they can’t be stopped. Now is the time to come together and stop Billary once and for all. I know the New York team won the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean that the New York Senator has to win Super Tuesday. Please don’t fall for those crocidile tears. I hear she’s trying to pull the same stunt she did in New Hampshire today. Hillary is not the one. She can not defeat Jon McCain and do we really need another dynasty. Continue reading Super-Duper-x-p-allah-dope-shit-Tuesday Bitch!
Before I begin I would like to just say that I am not a peace-nick, I am a Anarchist and not a non-violent one! I believe that War is necessary and and conflicts must sometimes be resolved by violent actions. With that said I also believe that the Iraq War was unnecessary and a mistake from day one.Obama was an early opponent of Bush administration policies on Iraq. In the fall of 2002, before the start of the Iraq War, he addressed an anti-war rally in Chicago, saying: “I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda. Continue reading I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars”.
I’ve tried to highlight the achievements of one Barack
Obama. I have detailed his accomplishments in the Illinois State
Senate and the Us Senate. Now I would like to highlight his plan for
America and how this country would be better off, under his bold
vision. It would be long and nearly impossible to read if I simply
repeated his plan as posted on his website. But feel free to go over and read it all yourself in detail. I highly recommend you download each of his PDFs
and see for yourself the great stuff he’s got planned. The only way
its going to happen though is if we stop Hillary and Obama receives
the Democratic nomination. Edwards dropped out this morning so now it’s down to two. Super Tuesday is next week and if you live in one of the ST states I hope you will be
voting and letting your voice be heard. Change is possible if you
have hope-the man says. Continue reading That’s why I’m in it!
Recently it was brought to my attention that I have spent too much time expounding on the reasons you shouldn’t vote for Hillary. Not enough time telling you why you should vote for Barack. In an effort to correct this I have compiled a list of his accomplishments garnered from around the world wide web. I will follow this with a look at his plans for a better America. “America is woven of many strands; I would recognize them and let it so remain. It’s ‘winner take nothing’ that is the great truth of our country or of any country. Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat. Our fate is to become one, and yet many — This is not prophecy, but description.”1 Continue reading This is not prophecy, but description
