What has the world come to?

Well friends, the good newsl I now have high speed wireless internet.

The bad news; Flavor of Love is back for another season.

In fact, my wife is watching it right now. Mysogyny, alcholism, violence all in the name of love for a 50 year old ex-crackhead. Yea boy.

But, however, there is a need for a no boy proclamation. A no boy proclamation that does not pit these young talented African American females in a sexual feast with this man. No boy, no boy to using these woman for sex and ratings. No boy, Don Imus can call a group of 12 nappy headed hos, yet these excuses for life have a vocabulary unfit for a sailor. Yes, I used to ba a sailor, and yes these girls have taught me some new things.

So does this introduce the double standards theory, as described in detail in earlier posts. No, quite simply, it establishes a need for change that Barack has not spoke of yet. A need to treat women as more than objects, humiliiation and subject of super driven male machismo.

Don't get me wrong, I flex my male status and yes there is a sense of roles to be recognized, I digress. The point is when will groups, as shown in this TV show, learn there is so much more to life beyond a man or even his affections? For that matter, to the extent you would ashame your family and the equal meritocracy achieved by past women/civil rights groups.

But at least I have wireless. So I may play my Kansas and Rush to cherish freedom, free will and so forth.

And wait for Celebrity Fit Club.

So let it be written, so let it be deemed a principality.

A conversation with Barrack

I woke up early last night. Anxious, excited and yet well rested. I turned on msnbc to see the latest hype Tuesday. I thought if Barrack was awake. And if he was, what was he thinking? Besides the obvious implications of a win tonight, how was he to cope with such a victory? I am sure, like many, he often dreamed of such a life. But isn't he scared?

Well, I watched, and drifted asleep into a world of less security and open doors.

P: How are you?

B: Nervous, of course. I don't think anyone could change that(with a smile).

P: Yea. To be honest, I always described you as another Jesse; not a serious candidate. I was wrong, and I am humbling myself to acknowledge that. I guess the race pimps are wrong in the ways they describe America.

B: My wife and I used to say that too. In fact, it is a testimony to Americans, my candidacy, that we are not this vicious beast waiting to kill on both sides of the aisle.

P: Weel, I still think we are, but to a lesser degree, TV always adds another 15lbs, making something bigger than what it is.

B: Ha, yea absolutley, the cynics, Rush and the other naysayers have been silenced, for now, and the friction still remains.

P: True, but would call those that disagree with some of your change policies in the America of old?

B: No, in fact that is a good point. I am promoting a politics of common unity, where the whole is greater than its part, of course, but the methods we use to heal political disagreement will be tools that unite and find a cure to devastating politics.

P: OK, that sounds nice. Unrealistic, but nice. You know, there is a certain philisophical presence in your demeanor that is comforting. Reminescent of past orators famous for finding this country. Are you sure though, that these traits are found in the executive branch? You steady vote liberal, hard left.

B: Yes. To see past the lack of substantive policy decisions, focus on what is right for now going forward. Radicals, from both parties, are responsible for where we are currently. Good and bad reasons, that were dynamic on it's face, yet we were able to adapt and become better as a country. We are witnessing a regression into the class systems of old, and that regression is turning the country into a complacent system. Seperating old, young, white, black, rich poor. Giving Americans a sense of seperation. The hope has become lost. That is what I intend to bring to Washington.

P: Wow(to myself). So, what say you to the David Brooks who mention your campaign is a big steady hope injection?

B: Ha. What can you say. The nation needs it. Forecosure rates, globalization and other indicators have brought the generation, I argue, to a point of needed injections. And if the nation appeals to a hope candidacy, my presdidency, so be it.

P: Sorry to burst your bubble, but I cannot vote for you. I know, it kills me, in fact I often try to make excuses to vote for you, sorry. I believe politics transcend race, and to break that principle, I imagine, would taint what I work so hard to do, create a new urban conservative movement.

B: A new urban conservative movement, I think it would be easier to build a spaceship in your backyard. Ha.

P: Yea. I really needed this, though. I wanted to tell you this for so long. I have been watching your candidacy, it is remarkable. Thanks for giving me the time. You should get some rest. Big day. The world needs a changin'.

B: Ha. It's okay. We need that, engaged Americans.

P: All this hope, change. I think I will go back to sleep.

Number 2.

Uh oh. Number 2 is enroute my friends. Tomorrow, my wife is expecting to give birth to our second daughter. What a relief.

Child birth is the greatest experience on earth. Bar none. Honestly, probably one of the few times I cried uncontrollably.

And now I think in what type of world will my daughters be living in? The new millenium has certainly brought in a kinder, understanding approach to womens rights, but I am scared of the mysogny of youth culture. Where a woman has been subject to treatment of being a sex symbol.

In light of the recent Kwame issues, LAURA VARON BROWN picks up this topic much better than I could.

Principality is not to be confused with convienance. Principality is to be a constant in which you gauge yourself and others in all of our transactions.

Slightling Ms. Beatty's character for personal gain sends the wrong message in a city that needs to promote equal treatment for all.

Detroits electorate needs to refrain from elected officials that hold themselves holier than thou.

It is unprincipality-like.

Huckabee wins in West Virginia.

Should he be proud of this? I know a wins a win, but damn. Huck has to have some dignity, right?

Arkansas/West Virginia. Sounds harmonious.

Like two peas in a pod.

But from the same Dad.

Be Gone Kwame

Kwame needs to be gone. The example Detroiters could make buy firing their one and only Hip Hop Mayor would set a tone for years to come that, 1. The D is a city on the track to redemption, 2. Foxtrot Tango Bravo, We demand results.

How can Detroiters of any race allow for their city, their home to be ridiculed this much? Placed under the microscope of the nation for all flaws to be on display. Enough is enough. Only when Kwame is fired (No, we will not accept your resignation) can the city stop the redistribution principles that have continued to allow for complacent mobility rates since white flight. Smooth it over they say. Your not accountable. Bill Clinton also took part. The excuses are plentiful.

Forbes has listed Detroit as the number 1 worst city in America, based on numerous variables.

So we combine the misery index, as set by Forbes, the unemployment rate, tax rates, and political corruption.

"No correlation" his supporters state. "It has to be GW's fault. He is the one that went to war in Iraq."

Did I mention the schools?
