I get it…I get it. Vote For Change…They are a cute family…Historic blah blah…but really all history isn’t progressive in a way that improves the human condition. I guess we have to cling to the press clippings and just find comfort in the “At least it isn’t Bush, McCain, or Romney…” mentality. Just not a fan of the politician.
More specifically a CAREER politician…Those who do it to make a living over a difference, which is just about all of them. Not knocking anyone for feeding their family, but just call it what it is…a job, career, and making a living…not service. Maybe I’m not rich enough or poor enough to feel the benefits.
It’s not about my personal well being that prompted the post…I just don’t like being told I should vote and praise a man that doesn’t care or can’t execute on my agenda…public health is cool…but public education is critical. Again I respect the man, because of Michelle Obama really…I’d like to see in his 2nd and last term him be more proactive and assert the full extent of his power and influence to push policy to improve the lives of Americans more than take lives of the misidentified enemies of the nation.
The greatest enemy of America is lack of education and resources to live above poverty while being beaten over the head with images of other gluttons being rewarded for their wasteful and distasteful behavior. #FeedTheGreed?
Tired of the empty revolution and war talk by armchair activist!
People too damn fat to go to war!…It sounds good in theory, but people are busy joking, jerking, and jigabooing too revolt against the “system”…Most people don’t even take ownership of what goes on under their own roof, but be high on the revolution buck the system talk…GTHOH
Lupe had a get set of lyrics for this:
“It’s not a trick, nigga, it’s a trap “Survival of the Fit” is what they aiming at And niggas ain’t fit (nope), fat as hell (yep) Fat in mind (yep), body fat as well”

My point is clean your house first, then your porch, steps, lawn, street and work your way out into the world…stop pump faking and put effort into your own home and mentality…then let it bleed into the community
How are you at war, but can’t read, high blood pressure, and bad a parent? There are so many real warriors out fighting…just give them their due and support them until you are ready. Don’t fake hustle your way into being a “leader”, then have all your dirt exposed on the back end…clean your house first. Tired of listening to every ex-convict, reformed gang member, wannabe Malcolm/Martin, thinking that because they shout it means something. Do the work, so the marching won’t just be a mass power walk and the petition signing won’t just be a contest of penmanship…
It is not anyone’s fault…we have to figure it out and work together to progress A CAUSE…not EVERY CAUSE…too many moving pieces and manipulative hearts in the mix to make a difference on a macro level. CLEAN YOUR HOUSE FIRST!
Without the images and the knowledge of who said it you would be more likely to place Malcolm X’s voice to these words, but MLK was a revolutionary more so than people have been lead to believe. His physical movements were non-violent, but his political and PR campaign against bigotry and ignorance was violent massacre…This is the MLK to soak into your African TO American soul. These are the words that we should arm our children with to deflect and nonsense of insecurity or attempt to be made inferior. Love it!
I'm the typical Leo personality where I operate with a feeling that I'm the center of the universe, knowing I'm not, but also acknowledging that we all operate from this same space. I rule as a fair, sensitive, and powerfully fearless king. Whether in my own mind or as the head of my family I try my best to live in truth.
