You Don't Know Me: T.I., Mariah and Neo-con short fuse

That does it. This proves that we Americans are the biggest suckas on the planet and we deserve all the bullshit we're getting. Forty percent of us are still drinking the Republican Kool-aid. The remaining 60 percent is largely just now putting down that poisonous concoction and coming too damned late to the 'Splain That WMD Crap party. The officials we elected to represent the majority of the now Kool-aidless 60 percent -- the Democrats -- are just now wiping red juice stains from their far too "mummed" mouths.

What am I ranting about? This! I said it before and I'll say it again: "Dick is going DOWN, down, d o w n . . ."

The CEO of every major oil corporation told Congress a bold-faced LIE, denying their companies met with Cheyney & Crew pre-Iraq. But the lying's not going to be a big problem. Because the Republicans insisted the CEOs not be sworn in when they "testified" about their head-spinning oil profits. What kind of ish is that?!

When I was a pre-teen my favorite older girl cousin, F., called herself educating me on how to deal with boys. F.'s emphatic mantra was, "If you find a fool, bump his head."

Well, the people of America ought to be suffering one, enormous headache by now. Because if this were boy-girl relations, there'd be a handful of folk off giggling and slapping five somewhere. Because the trusting, idiot, unquestioning American people -- once again -- have been f*****.

------------------------------------------------

On a lighter note, I watched some of the Vibe Awards last night. I could rip the show to shreds -- beginning with all of that too tired lip synching. But I'll skip the knit-picking and just get to the point: What the hell is up with Mariah Carey's body?

  • Did she get another breast enlargement?
  • Did she just gain weight, making her boobs look fatter?
  • Do people actually find her shape attractive?
  • Are her friends and family woefully egging her on (to Tit-ville) because they're afraid of losing a paycheck from her?
  • Will she ever find a stylist with the guts to fluff her flat-ass hair?
  • Am I the only person she's starting to look "Sweet Polly Purebred-ish" to?

Anyway, congrats girl for winning all those awards. Dig your Summer 2005 anthem, We Belong Together. Just don't know who could possibly fit in a room together with you. Not with those globe-sized boobs.

PS Shout out to T.I., who looked extremely handsome at the podium in his decorator tux, wearing a "You Don't Know Me" grin.

If you've ever had to try to help someone understand the WHY? of the French riots, Toledo riots, Hurricane Katrina "looting," or any other crisis in which the masses have seemingly lost their ever-loving minds and destroyed/pilfered property, here's one of the best essays I can recall reading to explain it.

It starts with this powerful quote:

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress," said the African American abolitionist Frederick Douglass. "Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters ... Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

Halfway in, the piece wove in this crucial finding:

After the 1967 riots in American cities, President Johnson set up the Kerner commission. It concluded: "What white Americans have never fully understood - but what the Negro can never forget - is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it." How else was such a damning indictment of racial discrimination in the US ever going to land on the president's desk?

So please check it out: Riots Are a Class Act - And Often, The Only Alternative. And please, email the article to anyone you believe needs a little light shed on the subject.

berry,
speaking of "trains," that vibe awards show made me appreciate the soul train (and BET) awards so much more.
