One thing is for sure - no matter what the outcome is when election day comes, it is bitter sweet for the men & women who are more involved and making awareness of the importance of voting. I will say that a lot of campaigns have fallen off and "can't wait for it to be over" but over all, a lot of people are STILL determined to root on their candidate.
The sad part about all of this is the "HYPE". Last night my home girl pointed out that I used to say I'd vote for McCain and asked about me coming to the light. My sister also make cracks about my supporting Hillary & not Obama. Truth is, the McCain comments were JOKES because in the end I was going to vote for which ever of the two were the Democratic Nom; really, what am I getting out of getting caught up in two people who have the same views on most of the same things? It's not like I'm a delegate or a delegate cares what i think, they have their own thoughts & picked who they felt was best.
Many people would come across like I was wrong for not whole heartily cheering on Obama because he is living History and will become the 1st black president in office. I respect the man but again, getting HYPYED about it solves what? Getting caught up in the hype only left people hating Hillary in the end. Obama supporters hate her so much I was told today that if he put her any where on his ticket he'd lose supporters? BUT WHY? Seriously, why? Are you voting for the man or are you voting for what he is trying to do for us as a Country? Hillary made a BEAUTIFUL speech the other night and sooooo many people are saying, "fuck her". "she had to do that", etc etc. YO! ARE YOU SERIOUS! This woman is saying how we should UNITE & you;'re saying fuck her? TRUE she said and did some horrible things to Obama but those are tactics you must do to run for office. Maybe if you paid attention to previous elections instead of jumping on the bandwagon cause Obama is black, then you would know that type of shit happens! Biden said disrespectful things about Obama, even said he'd be "HONORED" to run "WITH or against" McCain because he felt it was best for the country! Oh but you forgive him, lol. A man who says he'd say fuck being a Dem, I'll be a Repub because Obama just is not ready! ARE YOU SERIOUS? I'm not saying start looking at Biden crazy because in the end, I don't care! I'm tired of being broke & I'm voting for Obama, dammit!
So now Obama supporters want to go out and do all they can to get new supports and register people to vote. I'd like to suggest that you FIRST let go of the anger in your heart. You going after new recruits trying with the "vote for Obama or die" mentality is like a Muslim trying to convert a Christian - never a good thing. You have to have UNITY within your heart & accept Obama for what he STANDS FOR & not what "he is"; a black man!
I was at the Improv last month & can't remember which comedian said it, Tony Rock or some one, but they expressed black folks are going to end up turning on Obama because of the pressure they are going to put on him. I'm not sure folks are aware that by the time he is able to make all of the changes he hopes to accomplish, it will be time to re-elect him. If its not done right away or in a timely manner, the Ninjas are going to act up!
I still believe Obama needs to make Hillary Sec of State, it will secure those votes that are up in the air - did you see the blk delegate on TV saying she'd would not vote @ all? Some say she probably wouldnt take it anyway because it's not even 2nd place anymore but to be honest, that position is a whole lot better than VP. The VP is only heard from when there is a tie, otherwise they are out in the fields shootin ducks and people in the ass (lol). Condi is always doing something or involved in something. Just a thought - time to think strategy since McCain has selected a woman as VP. the rich folks and woman are still up in the air. There are rich Democrats who will vote for Mccain because they want to STAY rich! Don't sleep, they are also torn. Not to mention I don't think a lot of black people will go out and vote becasue they will think he has it on lock & just get lazy. Bush didn't win 8 years in a rown for nothing, son!
Shouts out to my Ninja Hakimu for calling it 4 days ago, saying McCain would pick a woman - he even said Sarah Palin would be one of the picks:
McCain Will Pick a Woman for his VIP Or at least, he's got to be seriously considering it.
Somewhere between 25% and 45% of Hillary supporters haven't bought into Barack Obama yet, depending on who you ask... That's a lot of chicks.
Plus, McCain keeps putting out ads alledging that Clinton wants her people to roll with McBush, so reaching out to her people seems like a logical extension of that.
Maybe Obama not choosing Hillary opened a door for McCain to exploit her angry supporters... uh oh...
Gov of Alaska, Sarah Palin?
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas?
Will the Republicans being anti-abortion keep these women (they're all women, dude) from keeping up their stubbornness and saying they'd rather vote for McCain than Obama?
In the words of one disqualified Olympic medalist, "We'll see"
If he picks Mitt Romney, I'm going to laugh - considering he hates the guy. We'll see how much integrity he has/had/whatever.

I am a DEMOCRAT and I approve this message! Oh yea, Big ups to Obama's speech last night! Not channelling too much of MLK is exactly what I was looking out for. I personally did not want to hear MLK's dream, I wanted to hear Obama's! RESPECT! F da haters aka Tavis Smiley
I sent to the link to my home girl who instantly reminded me of Ramon, the gay dancer who I mimicked! You see, all of my friends adore me cause I am a DAMN FOOL - always doing something silly! Well once upon a time I had a boy friend who didn't want me working, which lead to me being home all day with nothing but time on my hands. When I wasn't cooking, cleaning or baking I was writing (which is how Clit Chronciles were created - boredom and then came the videos! B used to HATE these videos, lol. He caught hell at work! LOL
And YES that is a projector as my TV/Computer screen on the wall. And if you look at thescreen you see Ramon & I am attempting to copy his moves!

So Sunday evening I'm chillin in the crib engaged in a conference chat w/ the "OUT" crew when I get a call from EJ of What It Dew Magazine asking if I want to take a ride. I had been in the house all day and really didn't feel like going any where - but I played along and was like where! He informed me he wanted to ride to Lake Charles, Louisiana to go gambling. I thought it over for a second and said FUCK IT - after all, I'd been in the crib all day, lol. Plus I hadn't hung w/ my homie in a while!
He comes through and I ended up driving. It was cool drivin for 2 hours out there, I must say it was the 1st time I was actually praising PARTY 93.3 for the switch; I was able to reach it wayyyy in Lake Charles, lol. Shouts out to Kiotti for the jams and LOL @ Slim Thug calling in cursing, LOL! COMEDY!!
Anywayyyyyyy - catching up and shit was cool until finally arriving to the casino at around 10:30 or so. I up and left & forgot to inform certain people that I was gone - the text messages were rather funny when I relayed the message, lol. MY BAD! EJ was on the crap table all night, while I played on Twitter and the 50 cent slot machines. The Ninja was actually up a wholeeee lot and some how blew what he won, lol. He told me to hold some money so he wouldn't blow all of it and told me not to give it to him until we left. You ain't got to tell me twice, lol. Of course he was trying to beat me up in an attempt to get the money I was holding, I walked him to the cashier to cash in and me like abig dummy allowed the girl to give HIM the cash and this fool ran back to the crap table, LOL.
We finally bounced at 1:00 and rode back - yea, I was stuck driving again, LOL. This time around I decided to play with the Benz and see what it was made of, lol. Man, lets just say the sound it made when I hit 100 to 120; BEAUTIFULLLLLLLLL! It freakin puurrrs, lol. Arriving back in Houston a lil before 3 and getting home around 3:30, I was dead tired 50 miles outside of Houston but I made it! Not to mention this Ninja was sleep and snoring on the ride home - but I forgive him cause he had to work at 6am, lol. Again, shouts out to PARTY 93.3 for playing some hits. Ya know how ya foot seems to get carried away while driving and you hear your jams - yea, that's what happened to me, lol.
I had a blast and think I want to make it a regular thing. Maybe invite more people next time! So Apeezy, Cristal and whom ever else, be ready when I call, LOL. We are hitting the rode =)
Thanxxxxxxxxxx EJ for the invite - have fun in Vegas this weekend, Son!
Before the video of Jo Jo passin out and K-Ci on radio talkin about it, lol - there were these pics! *doh* Check out the video and interview - www.straightfromthea.com The interview is COMEDY! K-Ci rants on how he hates Bill Gates and how they are not on drugs *blankstare*

So I'm chillin in the crib watchin Street Flava, I actually don't normally watch it but they were showing Ozone Award clips and I saw Chamillionaire - sweet Jesus do I LOVE that man!! Of course the commercials they show are the same one's over and over again - not knockin it tho (shouts out to D-Solo & my Angel Ms. Skye of The Boxx - I love her so!!) and the Strapped Condoms commercial is one that I saw multiple times.
As many of my friends know, I'm outspoken about safe sex, getting tested and blah blah blah, and I completely support Strapped Condoms (shouts out to Xaiver!!!) because 1) they are produced by a black owned business 2) it's Houston based and 3) the reps reach out the community. I am just curious as it if everyone who is a rep for Rap A lot and its supporting friends, actually use Strapped. Unfortunately, I am COMPLETELY allergic to the condoms and can't use them but I've never heard what others think of them.
Is Strapped the next Magum for the Hip Hop community - honestly, I hope it is, its something we need. With spokesmen such a Wayne, Rick Ross & the Rap A lot crew, it should do just fine. I think personal testimonies may be needed though because who is to say those Artist actually use em?
How about YOU buy em (Strapped Condoms) and tell me what cha think, aye? Thanx!!
This HIV/AIDS epidemic is NOT a game! Every Tuesday @ The Urban Zone inside of Sharpstown Mall we do FREE HIV testing from 3-7; Know Your Status & learn it EVERY 3 months!
