iljb#71: RE: Outrage in Washington over Obama’s Japan bow

First off, what bullshit:

“We don’t defer to emperors. We don’t defer to kings or emperors. Thepresident of the United States — this coupled with so many apologies from the United States — is just another thing,” said Bennett.

I’m sorry conservatives, but yal need to get off your high horses and stop criticizing your president. The man showed respect to an emperor of Japan and ANY leader will show respect to another leader no matter what country they are from. Stop thinking that just because he bowed to an emperor that it shows American leaders as weak – if anything it shows respect. And to respond to this comment:

“I’ll bet if you look at pictures of world leaders over 20 years meeting the emperor in Japan, they don’t bow,” Kristol said.

Yeah those presidents also weren’t of mix heritage either. So please, stop criticizing Obama for his gestures that deem to make America seem weak. IF you ask me, I personally think that America is weak if you gotta colonize a country, show force, authority, and be in control of a country not theirs. THAT IS WEAK! Oh wait…I think America has a history of doing that right? WAKE UP WASHINGTON, YOU AINT SHIT – AND IF YOU THINK YOU ARE – THEN YOU NEED A RUDE AWAKENING.

Obama has spoke to the people – spoke to leaders in a way that makes them feel like equals. Equals that are able to talk civil without putting their “president card” on the table. MMMM Obama didn’t win the Noble Peace Prize for nothing. SO SHUT THE FUCK UP WASHINGTON with your conservative bullshit. Instead of criticizing Obama, why don’t you criticize your own policies and views that affect those right in your district, state, country. You want to cap on the president for a bow? How about I criticize the fact that many conservatives don’t listen to the people, but rather tell the people what THEY THINK is right for their district and state. PLEASE don’t get me started.

ITS A SIGN OF RESPECT, but if you want to criticize respect or define respect, I suggest you start with your own! LEAVE OBAMA ALONE – SHIT! He has a lot to fix considering your PRESIDENT before him fucked us up and left a whole mess to clean.

SO PLEASE, if anything, the real outrage is how the politicians in Washington don’t know the difference between being a president and being a visitor in someone elses country.

relieved

Slowly, life seems to be getting back on track. I feel accomplished as though I really am focusing on school. Well DUH! So I am pleased with myself, I am slowly getting back in the groove of things. However, my troubles lie with work now. SIGH…I’m doing two jobs. But soon I’ll be out of the other. Lets get it right? LETS get it!

I want to thank the Lord for giving me the passion and the drive to overcome all this that I have these past few weeks. Although I might now have gone to church for a couple of weeks now =/, I know the Lord is guiding me every step of the way. I feel like hes making sure that I take the right steps to success each day I walk…and I thank him for that.

People are stupid when it comes to politics and youtube. People are sooo arrogant or naive when they spit whatever they need to on my youtube videos…it irritates the hell out of me. Please…if you have nothing good to say, don’t waste your time expressing em to me. Thanks…

Anyway, this night, this day…is only a beginning of what I can accomplish for tomorrow.

Happy about Obama. Sad about California.

Democrats vs Republicans part II

This is what I call, “people need to stop looking at the past, but rather look how the present will affect the future.” Put aside politics for a moment and take a look at what you see and hear. You see two candidates who really want this presidency and for one, its a closer reality than his opponent. I read how McCain doesn’t even look at Obama during debates, a sign that he’s arrogant and he has no respect whats so ever for his opponent. Also, he’s already lied to this country when he was asked to pay a visit to the Letterman show…he said he had to do some campaign shit…So why the hell was he next door getting “a better interview” from a “better reporter” or whatever the hell it was. Goes to show that McCain ain’t for the people…hes not one of us…hes too good to be one of us. What kind of candidate does that? Also, his VP doesn’t seem to be doing so hot. Yeah shes a hot mama, but a misguided candidate whos in this election for all the wrong reasons. Change? I don’t think so.

She doesn’t even believe in abortion if and when a woman gets raped. Now to me, thats just some bullshit. Why you gonna carry your rapists baby? Absurd…some republicans are absurd. Recently, I just watched a video on some of the McCain/Palin supporters on youtube…Yeah its propaganda and one sided, but really though…people can be MAJOR idiots when they have no idea what the hell they’re supporting. Its like agreeing to something someone said without knowing the consequences of your agreement. Much like this race for the white house. Folks don’t want to do their research, they just listen or watch what they see in the media.

Take for example, my mom. Shes only voting for McCain because theres a woman running beside him. I told her that if she votes for him, my education will be in more danger for the future. She didn’t care…”der is a woman. Bahala ka jan!” As much as I wanted to tell her that her choice for this years election to vote for McCain is going to be the biggest mistake she’ll ever make…she wont listen. Shes stubborn. She also doesn’t like African Americans -_-. 

Fact of the matter is, Democrats for this election have been nothing but classy and have been inviting folks to really look into their campaign, rather than propagate why people should vote democrat this time around…I think its an obvious choice regardless. Republicans are getting worried that they wont have power in the senate, house, and yes…the country – leaving them with only one choice – to make Obama look like an idiot and spend countless of money on advertisement against Obama. To be honest, some Republicans think like the Old Red Necks you hear and watch in movies and TV shows…-_- 

Their policies, there stance on certain topics, whatever it may be…I think we can see the favorable victor in this years election. I pray…this time America wont be stupid enough to pick a candidate who will most definitely set back America even more. 

Vote for your future. Vote for the next generation. Vote for your family. Vote for change. Vote for something real.

VOTE OBAMA 2008

Plain and simple.

Republicans are rude

As much as I don’t want to be bias in this whole election between democrats and republicans, I think in recent events from what I have gathered, I must. The fact of the matter is, in my own opinion, republicans especially right now, have a dirty way of using propaganda to sway their message to americans. It boggles my mind how two parties who want the best for america, who want change, who want reform, who want the best for its people, have completely two different attitudes, ethics, and mind set in this upcoming election. More so the Republicans. Now I’m pretty sure not ALL Republicans agree or approve the message that McCain and his republican party preach, but nonetheless, it is down right RUDE from what I have seen. 

Take for instance the video above. The Republican student group at SFSU decided to make a mockery out of Obamas recent speech. Now I watched that speech on youtube and I must say I was very impressed and moved with what Obama has envisioned for this country, but if I were a DUMB and uneducated american (trust there are many), I would believe that video above to be true. Furthermore, take Obamas youtube versus McCains. Obama has several videos highlighting his speeches and his fellow democrats who endorse his campaign conversely McCains youtube page has a whole set of propaganda against Obama. 

Now just from that observation, one must note the kind of character each party showcases.

The Democrats who want to outreach to the everyday working class, to showcase the issues that the party would like to tackle, and to show the people that the democrats are working hard to make change possible in this years election. 

Or

The Republicans who spend millions of dollars to create propaganda commercials, spending more money in businesses who are already well off, and ultimately leaving the working class to struggle. 

Now I know, I must do more research in what the Republicans do/do not stand for, but why should I when at first glance I wouldn’t want to be surrounded by that negativity and arrogance. Republicans to me remind me of those Caucasians in school who are the “jocks” or the “pretty cheerleaders” who feel that they can say or do anything that they please without reparations – basically the bullies at school. Wait a second, isn’t it funny how the WORLD feels like we have been more so the bully of all the other nations in the last 8 years? Mmmmm what an interesting parallel. It annoys the shit out of me.

In my opinion, Republicans are definitely not the kind of CHANGE I would like to see or we as America NEED right now. Republicans to me are folks who are living in the old fashion way, who are closed minded, immature, and who don’t believe in REAL change – rather believe that things right now are just O-K. I mean, take a look again at that video above! Basically, their tactics in teaching young Republicans who don’t know any better, is to show that being a DICK is the way to go to win the presidency. 

Thats what fellow republicans APPROVE. Thats what fellow republicans spend most of their time doing – creating a huge separation between the rich and the poor. Creating more HATE and DISCRIMINATION.

But…hey if I didn’t know any better I would say that the middle class of America makes a bulk of America and without US…the upper class of America would falter.

WAKE UP REPUBLICANS! Change hasn’t happened in the last 8 years, if anything you’ve made an ass out of you, me, and this beautiful country. 

If anyone who reads this agrees or disagrees, please make an educated and insightful stance. Do your research, keep up with todays news, VOTE in this years elections. I am proud to say that this will be my first time voting in an election and I am proud to stand by Obama in ensuring his candidacy for president. Like I said, research what you think you know and go from there. 

Overall, I wanted to just say – Republicans are RUDE…plain rude.
