I love these three men.All have massive passion about the people especially those that can't or don't know how to speak for self!

 

Obama has been worshiped by his supporters but lets get beyond that celebrity of his and speak to the real issues that many people are dealing with.I so respect Dr.West and Tavis Smiley because it is surely not easy to push forward with agenda to deal with poor people while at the same time dealing with all the ignorance in The Black community when it comes to holding Obama accountable....

Pelosi, Obama disagree on tax cuts
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/01/18/pelosi-obama-disagr...

It was the Public Option Obama refused to sign on to because he couldn't get a consensus! He simply gave away trillions letting the Bush Tax Cuts slide for a Stimulus Package of 800 Billion that's way too small considering the damage Bush Tax Cuts had already done to jobs, coupled with big business getting paid to take our jobs overseas! We're getting seriously shorted!

Larry Summers is one of those New World Order guys Obama surrounded himself with! He's helped persuade Obama to let the Bush Tax Cuts slide along with Tim Geithner and other players of the NWO.

Obama is little more than a puppet or black mascot as Dr. West described. We're getting sold out big time!

The rest of the world economy is suffering because Obama is ho'n! America is the largest market in the world. When we have a cold the rest have a flu! Our buyers are deep in debt because they got scammed! Instead of executing Executive Order available to Obama for such a crisis, Obama lets them be damned!

Our buyers are deep in debt because they got scammed!
Obama has the Executive Order but let them be damned!

The same he does for the jobless who are hurting soo bad!
We thought we voted in a messiah but realize we've been had!

The Bush tax cuts got our economy grounded!
Therefore, Main Street is jobless and hounded!

It's a real dog's day every day for the poor in the USA!
All Obama does is promises and puts the blame game in play!

We're tired of hearing the same old retreaded trash!
That's what it is when promises produce us no cash!

Obama's not doing anybody but the rich any good!
You want me to vote for him again, but why should?!

He's just running around blaming, making empty promises!
He's blaming the Tea Party to cover up the sum of this!

He wants to ignore that this is how things added up!
Letting Bush Tax Cuts slide are biting his butt!

The economy is not growing
Because Obama's ho'n!

The intelligent people know he's snowing!
Obamabots are psyched out, though knowing!

What other reason would they want to vote for Obama again!
They are afraid that if they don't, the Tea Party gets in!

That's greatly over reacting because neither are your friend!
Cutting off your nose to smite your face is a mortal sin!

If Obama gives me significant black jobs, he's got my vote!
If he doesn't, I'm going to be trying to wreck his boat!

I plan to be a leak in his boat that makes it sink!
Obama's as bad as the Tea Party, is what I think!

Getting significant black jobs means lifting the economy in whole!
If he doesn't, my vote will not allow him to play the same role!

He's proved to be unworthy to be President!
Obama's got to deliver to hold that resident!

I knew there was a rhyme in there somewhere!
Obama must supply our needs or get out of there!

Obama must give me what I want
Or vote for him, I don't!

We have so many blacks who are eligible to vote but who do not. Every election I go on the internet and look at counties voter registrations.

The margin Bush won by was by the same amount of registered voters here in Georgia who didn't vote.

So if people want change - they have to get out and vote into office people for Congress who will vote the way they want - just like the Tea Party did.

O'Drama...instead of thinking of President Obama as a "puppet" or "black mascot", look at what he's done and read what he's said, even in 08.

He's really an extension of two of his predecessors, Clinton and Nixon, which fuels some of the hatred the Repubs have for him. They hated Clinton because he instituted essentially Republican policies, but wasn't officially a Republican. They hate Obama for the same reason.

The Health Care Reform is very much like Romney's plan in Massachusetts, which was originated by the Heritage Foundation, and is very much like what Nixon tried to do (but not as "liberal").

Same with the big bailout...tax policy...war...education...Obama is what we used to call a moderate Republican (when those existed), just as is most of the Democratic Party. He's more like Nixon in blackface than a black puppet...he knows what he's doing, and decides to do it.

As to voting, I'm thinking this will be the time to vote one's conscience...not to abstain...but to vote for who one truly wants, consequences be damned.

You have a point brother, but I like considering Obama a puppet because the guys in the New World Order are pulling his strings, calling shots with the Republicans. He's a mascot because they just want him around running front and let us know they own him. He's just window dressing.

Sounds like you're thinking about voting for someone other than Obama. Are you?

I think it would be really cool for someone to put up a website and send Obama an email to it, showing him the people who voted for him but are voting Tea Party if he don't quickly turn the economy around. Have a mandate and black jobs be one of them! Tell him to execute Executive Order if he has to! Might get some action. May not. He impresses me as a guy that's totally detached! He couldn't care one way or the other. His claim to fame is winning the Presidency. He doesn't really care about what happens after that. He's more than willing to let others call the shots while he pretends he cares. He's a creep in my book! Just selling us out without any feeling. He's more like a robot than a human. We've been had dad.


Check out my rhyme:

Hate to see Obama going down that way.
But when he cuts my check, he's gotta pay!

I'd like to rhyme him into nonexistent!
Might help him to give a listen!

Obama is free to be what he wants to be.
I'm just slamming because he vexes me!

Moderate, conservative Democrats, seem all the same.
They do the same so blacks will see little gain.

I know there's a difference but it doesn't much matter.
They both seem to be working for the rich upper ladder!

Vote for Obama, don't bother me.
I'm not a chimp or a dumb monkey!

I didn't just drop out of a tree.
I happen to have a college degree!

You're not blind and I know you see
How Obama blew this economy!

Hang on to your butts, the house is on firer!
Times are very hard and only get direr!

Remember that I told you so!
That's why Obama's got to go!

He ain't smart and he ain't cool!
Ran the economy like a blimmin fool!

Instead of spending your time on me
Go tell Obama what I want to see!

He's got to be scared there are much more like me.
We don't like the dumb moves he made with the economy!

Tell him, leave my Medicare and Social Security alone!
50 million others mean I'm not voting him out on my own!

Do that and get significant black jobs to seal the deal!
That's what he needs to get my vote, and good I'll feel!

If he doesn't get me that, I'll make him a meal!
I'll eat him up with my constant rhyme spill!

He's pretty lucky I'm just doing this spot!
Spread around the Internet and it could get hot!

It might set poor Obama's chances on firer!
So tell him to set his aims a little bit higher!

It's not high enough if I'm unhappy!
I'm tired of all of his dumb and crappy!

Sending brothers and sisters to jail or sleep in the street!
Obama's not one that any black person should want to keep!

Hey, maybe I'm just wasting my time.
Trying to rap slap Obama's dumb behind!

We'll just have to see how it go.
I'm just sharpening up for the 2012 show!

Obama drama,

You need to have copyrights on your poem and have them all published in one book so your book can be sitting right next to Obama autobiography as the first black President of the United States. I hope that you include your autobiography in with it.

You would make alot of money. One way or another Obama can make you rich!

You want Medicare and Social Security...but you talk like you'll vote for a Tea Party candidate??? Seriously reconsider that kind of talk. The TP will either completely eliminate or privatize both Social Security and Medicare, along with education from kindergarten through college...forget about Head Start.

Yes, I'll most likely vote for a Green Party or Socialist candidate. I worked for and voted for Obama because, first, I couldn't bear the possibility of that nutcase Sarah Palin becoming President if McCain died, and second, I wanted to help give Jeff Merkley (D-OR) some coat tails to ride into the Senate.

I'm happy with Merkley, very displeased with Obama...but, if it comes to a choice between some right wing religious fanatic like Bachmann or Perry or Palin, vs Obama...I'll hold my nose and vote for Obama. He's certainly not a Progressive, but he's also not a madman.

I agree!! Nut jobs in the tea party are very disturbing! Imagine Palin as prez? OMG! 

 

"I'm happy with Merkley, very displeased with Obama...but, if it comes to a choice between some right wing religious fanatic like Bachmann or Perry or Palin, vs Obama...I'll hold my nose and vote for Obama. He's certainly not a Progressive, but he's also not a madman."

There is nothing wrong with voting for the Green Party, but when was the last time one won? In fact, so many were disappointed with Democrats and Republican that they voted for the Green Party in 2000 and we got George Bush over Al Gore. Most disgusted democrats vote green which is what puts Republicans in power. I told my oldest daughter that in 2000 and guess what? The republicans won.

 

So, basically, We all might as well welcome the Tea Party in the White House Now.

Hey Christine, thanks for the props.

I thought about a book or ebook, but I'm slamming everybody. Who would buy the book! If it sells I'd be invited on shows and scoured like a monster when I'm not. People would be hanging me on a wall and throwing darts at me. KKK might want a piece of me for trying to lift my people up. I'm in trouble enough slamming a guy that could send Internal Revenue at me, not because they think I owe, but to keep me so busy I don't have time for poems. I'd rap that for sure. I'm still thinking on it. I'd need lots more material for a book. Insulting as they are, maybe too nice for a price. I'd hate having to be even more rude and crude to hit the big money altitude.

I'm just speaking truth to power as I see it and trying to get others to see it. I insult but a rhyme softens the blow I feel. Maybe I'm wrong.

Like Sly And The Family Stone - Everyday People:

Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah

Byard, I hear you brother, and that's very sound reasoning. That's what Democrats are counting on. They know you have very few ways to go. They never think we'll get crazy enough to totally vote against our own interest to kick their complacent, throw the blacks crumbs and they'll come along, butts out on their arrogant perch!

So, tell me, do you think America will put up with rule under the Tea Party very long! We all know the Tea Party don't have a clue of how to run a country. They'll have America in a deep h*** and pissed off so bad that blacks won't have to start a riot because whites will beat them to it!

They'd be kicked out and legal moves they make will be reversed! Chances are, we'll get a better government and blacks will stop getting ignored! They know we could get crazy! If not respect us, fear our crazy! lol! He, he.

An amendment for Full employment with a living wage, at a minimum is what we need. Quotas were just and righteous, but required whites to give up power for blacks to have a job! We know that plan won't stand! This way there is no one but the rich giving up more as it should be!

It use to be the rich couldn't exist without us. Now, our government pays them to replace us with labor from other countries and no real compensation to us for it! It is legalized treason and nothing else. It's a clear break with the Constitution! Our country has been stolen by the rich and banks. The Supreme Court is accessories to the crime! The government is nothing but a puppet show! It's a 3 ring circus! The Big Business, banks, and government! A three horned beast! Rhinoccracy!

I agree, my idea is pretty radical. Desperate measures for desperate circumstances.

This Democracy is really a three ring circus!
All they want to do is furkus!

There's no more Democracy!
It's really Rhinoccracy!

I know I'm over the top.
What do you have to stop?

Stop the genocide of our people!
Give us a system that's equal!

Defeat the corruption by the rich man!
Start a process for a better plan!

No offense brother but your decision changes nothing, that's clear.
Our present system buys up any politician and move as they chose to steer!

There must be an uprising to kick crooked Supreme court judges and congressmen out!
Corruption of money has destroyed any legal avenue to allow the people power or hear our shout!

Democracy in America is dead!
We need to get it in our head!

I'm open to another solution
To changing our institution.

I'd rather not go radical to make it pay.
But that's where we're headed anyway!

We really have but two parties, Republican or Democrat!
Vote for any other, they lose, and to one of those two, tip their hat!

Right back where we started from!
It's not where deliverance will come!

Revolution is in the air!
Not something I declare!
It's already there!

What in the world is the Tea party?!
But a break with true Constitutionality!

You want Medicare and Social Security...but you talk like you'll vote for a Tea Party candidate??? Seriously reconsider that kind of talk.

Yes, I'll most likely vote for a Green Party or Socialist candidate. I worked for and voted for Obama because, first, I couldn't bear the possibility of that nutcase Sarah Palin becoming President if McCain died, and second, I wanted to help give Jeff Merkley (D-OR) some coat tails to ride into the Senate.

I'm happy with Merkley, very displeased with Obama...but, if it comes to a choice between some right wing religious fanatic like Bachmann or Perry or Palin, vs Obama...I'll hold my nose and vote for Obama. He's certainly not a Progressive, but he's also not a madman.

You have a point brother, but I like considering Obama a puppet because the guys in the New World Order are pulling his strings, calling shots with the Republicans. He's a mascot because they just want him around running front and let us know they own him. He's just window dressing.

Sounds like you're thinking about voting for someone other than Obama. Are you?

I think it would be really cool for someone to put up a website and send Obama an email to it, showing him the people who voted for him but are voting Tea Party if he don't quickly turn the economy around. Have a mandate and black jobs be one of them! Tell him to execute Executive Order if he has to! Might get some action. May not. He impresses me as a guy that's totally detached! He couldn't care one way or the other. His claim to fame is winning the Presidency. He doesn't really care about what happens after that. He's more than willing to let others call the shots while he pretends he cares. He's a creep in my book! Just selling us out without any feeling. He's more like a robot than a human. We've been had dad.


Check out my rhyme:

Hate to see Obama going down that way.
But when he cuts my check, he's gotta pay!

I'd like to rhyme him into nonexistent!
Might help him to give a listen!

Obama is free to be what he wants to be.
I'm just slamming because he vexes me!

Moderate, conservative Democrats, seem all the same.
They do the same so blacks will see little gain.

I know there's a difference but it doesn't much matter.
They both seem to be working for the rich upper ladder!

Vote for Obama, don't bother me.
I'm not a chimp or a dumb monkey!

I didn't just drop out of a tree.
I happen to have a college degree!

You're not blind and I know you see
How Obama blew this economy!

Hang on to your butts, the house is on firer!
Times are very hard and only get direr!

Remember that I told you so!
That's why Obama's got to go!

He ain't smart and he ain't cool!
Ran the economy like a blimmin fool!

Instead of spending your time on me
Go tell Obama what I want to see!

He's got to be scared there are much more like me.
We don't like the dumb moves he made with the economy!

Tell him, leave my Medicare and Social Security alone!
50 million others mean I'm not voting him out on my own!

Do that and get significant black jobs to seal the deal!
That's what he needs to get my vote, and good I'll feel!

If he doesn't get me that, I'll make him a meal!
I'll eat him up with my constant rhyme spill!

He's pretty lucky I'm just doing this spot!
Spread around the Internet and it could get hot!

It might set poor Obama's chances on firer!
So tell him to set his aims a little bit higher!

It's not high enough if I'm unhappy!
I'm tired of all of his dumb and crappy!

Sending brothers and sisters to jail or sleep in the street!
Obama's not one that any black person should want to keep!

Hey, maybe I'm just wasting my time.
Trying to rap slap Obama's dumb behind!

We'll just have to see how it go.
I'm just sharpening up for the 2012 show!

O'Drama...instead of thinking of President Obama as a "puppet" or "black mascot", look at what he's done and read what he's said, even in 08.

He's really an extension of two of his predecessors, Clinton and Nixon, which fuels some of the hatred the Repubs have for him. They hated Clinton because he instituted essentially Republican policies, but wasn't officially a Republican. They hate Obama for the same reason.

The Health Care Reform is very much like Romney's plan in Massachusetts, which was originated by the Heritage Foundation, and is very much like what Nixon tried to do (but not as "liberal").

Same with the big bailout...tax policy...war...education...Obama is what we used to call a moderate Republican (when those existed), just as is most of the Democratic Party. He's more like Nixon in blackface than a black puppet...he knows what he's doing, and decides to do it.

As to voting, I'm thinking this will be the time to vote one's conscience...not to abstain...but to vote for who one truly wants, consequences be damned.

Correction:

Pelosi, Obama disagree on tax cuts
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/01/18/pelosi-obama-disagr...

It was the Public Option Obama refused to sign on to because he couldn't get a consensus! He simply gave away trillions letting the Bush Tax Cuts slide for a Stimulus Package of 800 Billion that's way too small considering the damage Bush Tax Cuts had already done to jobs, coupled with big business getting paid to take our jobs overseas! We're getting seriously shorted!

Larry Summers is one of those New World Order guys Obama surrounded himself with! He's helped persuade Obama to let the Bush Tax Cuts slide along with Tim Geithner and other players of the NWO.

http://www.tnr.com/article/politics/89627/tim-geithner-debt-deficit

Obama is little more than a puppet or black mascot as Dr. West described. We're getting sold out big time!

The rest of the world economy is suffering because Obama is ho'n! America is the largest market in the world. When we have a cold the rest have a flu! Our buyers are deep in debt because they got scammed! Instead of executing Executive Order available to Obama for such a crisis, Obama lets them be damned!

Our buyers are deep in debt because they got scammed!
Obama has the Executive Order but let them be damned!

The same he does for the jobless who are hurting soo bad!
We thought we voted in a messiah but realize we've been had!

The Bush tax cuts got our economy grounded!
Therefore, Main Street is jobless and hounded!

It's a real dog's day every day for the poor in the USA!
All Obama does is promises and puts the blame game in play!

We're tired of hearing the same old retreaded trash!
That's what it is when promises produce us no cash!

Obama's not doing anybody but the rich any good!
You want me to vote for him again, but why should?!

He's just running around blaming, making empty promises!
He's blaming the Tea Party to cover up the sum of this!

He wants to ignore that this is how things added up!
Letting Bush Tax Cuts slide are biting his butt!

The economy is not growing
Because Obama's ho'n!

The intelligent people know he's snowing!
Obamabots are psyched out, though knowing!

What other reason would they want to vote for Obama again!
They are afraid that if they don't, the Tea Party gets in!

That's greatly over reacting because neither are your friend!
Cutting off your nose to smite your face is a mortal sin!

If Obama gives me significant black jobs, he's got my vote!
If he doesn't, I'm going to be trying to wreck his boat!

I plan to be a leak in his boat that makes it sink!
Obama's as bad as the Tea Party, is what I think!

Getting significant black jobs means lifting the economy in whole!
If he doesn't, my vote will not allow him to play the same role!

He's proved to be unworthy to be President!
Obama's got to deliver to hold that resident!

I knew there was a rhyme in there somewhere!
Obama must supply our needs or get out of there!

Obama must give me what I want
Or vote for him, I don't!

We have so many blacks who are eligible to vote but who do not. Every election I go on the internet and look at counties voter registrations. There are always hundreds of thousands of eligible voters who are registered but who have not voted. If these people had voted in the 2000 election, even with the hanging chads, Gore would have been President of the United States and not Bush. The margin Bush won by was by the same amount of registered voters here in Georgia who didn't vote. Every state has hundreds of thousands of people registered but who don't vote every year in one election or another.

So if people want change - they have to get out and vote into office people for Congress who will vote the way they want - just like the Tea Party did.

Obama drama,

No one would hurt you, not if you talk about everybody. Everyone would have their turn to laugh at what you said about the other person once you've finished with them.

The KKK won't go after you as long as you throw something in there for the Black Panther Party too.

LMAO...

Hey Byard, I had a chance to listen to Jeff Merkley (D-OR)

http://merkley.senate.gov/

Jeff Merkley is very impressive. He sounds like the guy I helped vote in! Dare I say Obama without criticism? Obama talked good sense without biting his tongue before the NWO, bankers, and Big Business gave him a lobotomy with greenbacks!

If Jeff Merkley has a plan for equality of black jobs which naturally must include a plan to increase black business in the black community, and can deliver rather than just promise, I'm on board!

The problem is that he probably just wants to talk comprehensive help for black jobs by improving the economy. That's Democrat speak for you're on your own! Improving the economy is great but that's not even nearly good enough in a good economy! It's a calamity right now! I know you got to crawl before you walk but we've been crawling a long time! It's time we throw away the knee pads and find somebody that will give us track shoes and a good path to run on!

If you vet Merkley and he talks comprehensive, then why not suggest Full Employment with a Living Wage Amendment! This is comprehensive and equality! It's the real path to improving the black condition! It's the least every American 18 and up should have! I'm talking about $500 at the end of the month when basics like rent, food, and utilities are paid! It's a solid foundation to build a life and raise a family on!

Quality jobs in good supply are at the root of changing the dynamics that cause black joblessness, incarceration, and poor quality education! So called efforts to improve black jobs by making blacks more employable through education has failed. You still need a government that's obligated to creating enough quality jobs or compensate for them! Education doesn't change racial discrimination! It doesn't change the poor living standards that distracts and depresses! Doesn't allow for more homes to have 2 parents! Doesn't give a fair chance to succeed when you start soo far behind! This is the black condition! We've been deprived of our share of decent jobs for ages!

The black environment, will not, on average, produce a black product equal to his white counterpart! Promoting education without an obligation to enough quality jobs and racial equality to access those jobs is just a ploy to perpetuate genocide and blame it on the victim and his race! It also loads huge debt on educated blacks that can't get the job though qualified!

We all know changing the financial condition and environment of a people is far more efficient than asking a person to jump over hurdles, through hoops, and dodge bullets to become a success! Still, our society choose the shortcut of loading education debt on blacks and no job at the end, to shortchange the black man in order to genocide him and put it to his blame! That's the real deal!

We need to require Jeff Merkley to deliver black jobs before we vote for him! If you can't get that commitment from him, chances are you'll end up with the same deal as usual! Blacks on the bottom, jobless or wage too small to keep up with the bills, so prisons and grave yards get filled!

We need to assure all congressmen, black, white, green, or purple, that their job is gone if we don't get adequate black jobs!

I can see you picking the best among evils but the lesser evil is still gobbling us up in prison, joblessness, deep debt, soup lines, and 6 feet under ground! It's a slower genocide but any genocide is super size unjustified! We should stop settling for it! It's the little foxes that destroy the vine!

Still, I understand. Blacks are hard to organize to get the job done. For years we have given our trust to people who only dragged us along with promises. They gave a valiant effort with Quotas, boycotts, and affirmative action to get those black jobs. Did good! Then, the movement stopped dead in it's tracks! But what have they done for us lately!

We couldn't see those guys had been assimilated with big money! You can't depend on them anymore to keep the movement going! They are letting them get away with this azz backwards approach! I heard some say Sharpton and Jackson are part of Obama's counsel! They've been Borged(assimilated)! So, it's up to you young lions to organize and fix the problem. If I knew how, I'd tell you.

It's been over 35 years since I got my business degree and it wasn't much then. I feel helpless. You young lions are plenty smart enough! You just got to stop thinking there are established black leaders that are going to do it for you. Smiley and West can't afford to jeopardize their position. They are really needed where they are. We need intelligent black people with little to lose to get the party started! This is happening on the young lion's watch!

You young lions must raise the money to get legal advice to start the organization to put pressure on congress and build the black community! Even if you have to make some of that money with Chinese labor and other cheap labor sources overseas so you can build the factories here and pay the workers instead of stock holders! The seed money has to come from somewhere. It's obvious to me that corporations and banks sucking up our wealth are our primary disease! It's a sophisticated slave system also used as a tool for genocide! Yet corporations is what you may have to build to turn this tragedy around. You don't have to manage it in such a ruthless way! Balance is need. Pay the American workers instead of huge bonuses to CEO's! I have no problem with an organization that uses outsourced labor to compete as long as he's putting some of those profits in American jobs. You really need to get the government to raise the cost to bring imports in so our jobs and standard of living is protected!

Maybe you should find out a little more of what Jeff Merkley really stands for.
