Good Morning Sweetheart! No, I didn't know. However, he needs to go some damn where and shut the hell up. I don't have a problem with people fighting for us, but some of these "Old War Horses" need to realize their time has passed and it's time to make room for the young black warriors with new ideas and new ways of thinking. Whether you agree with the President's policies or not, it's considered sacriledge to smear him when so much is riding on his presidency. To join in with the fray that you know is against him, racist, and seeking to destroy his presidency is the worst thing, these two could do as black men. West has some street creds and is intelligent. His time has just passed. However, that grinning, self-enriching, snake oil salesman and fish-eyed, Tavist Smiley is an altogether different matter. He's a poverty pimp, non-articulate, country bumpkin with delusions of granduer.

He needs to turn in his black people card and join the other Toms and Uncle Rukuses.

You're here too.....
Uh, yes. I'm here too (that's not a very smart response BTW), but you're here ALL the time. Isn't there SOMEONE willing to spend time with you ever? You said you have a nice pickup truck. Can't you bathe, put on a cowboy hat, some boots, clean clothes, and go out on the town? I understand you don't drink alcohol, but you could take a gal out to dinner, to the movies, go to her place and watch DVD's ... You're like a 7 year-old boy still breast feeding. It's OK for you to move on son. There are other things in life aside from keeping track of and obsessing over black people.

CRITICIZING OBAMA?

Well, all political figures can be held accountable. Obama is no different.
But probably his critics are also concerned about what the RIGHT WING alterantive looks like.

How best to hold Barack Obama accountable, but also stave off a right wing resurgence?

Hahahahaha....ooooookkkaaayyy then....I was never into either of them that much....so I have little quirks about them both....but nothing that stopped them from being them. You see....I don't have to spend much time worrying about people I don't connect with...I have come to learn there is a reason someplace for that and it usually surfaces after a while. I never connected with Bishop Eddie Long either....the scandal regarding sexual abuse of then young male church members. I also believe that anyone that goes on the hunt to crucify, denounce, or question another in the struggle...soon makes a mistake and they themselves become the hunted. Its a known fact....warranted through trial and error. there a saying that goes...."Sometimes people underestimate others, and then OVERESTIMATE themselves".

Here's another saying...this is my favorite...at the bottom of my emails I respond to....."Any fool can know, but the point is to understand." ~Albert Einstein
