After 8 Years of the Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Wanna Get Mad?

Why didn’t you get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President?

Why didn’t you get mad when Cheney allowed energy company officials to dictate policy and push the military to invade Iraq?

Why didn't you get mad when we spent over 800-billion (and counting) on just said war?

Why didn’t you get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 United States Presidents combined?

Why didn’t you get mad when over 10-billion dollars in cash disappeared in Iraq?

Why didn’t you get mad when you found out the U.S. government was torturing people and holding them captive without due process?

Why didn’t you get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6-million American jobs out of the country?

Why didn’t you get mad when Bush ran up 10-trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits?

Why didn’t you get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed?

Why didn’t you get mad when our government stood by and watched New Orleans and its people drown?

Why didn’t you get mad when we gave the filthy rich over a trillion dollars in tax breaks?

Why didn’t you get mad when over 200-thousand U.S. citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance?

Why didn’t you get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused U.S. citizens to lose 12-trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values?  

But now:
You wanna kick, fight and scream about President Obama's health care plan which will allow millions to see a doctor if they are sick.
You wanna accuse President Obama of socialism for trying to improve the living conditions of so many left to rot by the Bush regime.
You wanna get mad at President Obama for doing what Presidents do, travelling abroad to improve foreign relations.
Come on, be honest with yourself and us, why are you really mad? Is it because a Black Man is trying to piece back together, your beloved country that a white man tore down for his friends and his own selfish gain?
Truth be told, George Bush doesn't dislike black people, he just has a lack of respect and care for poor people. You dislike black people, if you are opposed to President Obama's attempt to improve life for all Americans, regardless of race or economics!!!!

Whip My Hair... Why?

Music has had it's ups and downs in the past but it has reached an all time low with this one.
Will Smith's daughter has entered the world of music with a song called, "Whip My Hair" that has peaked to number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Why?!
Will Smith made some great music, so if you are expecting something similar from his daughter's first single, think again. Look past the fact that she is 10 years old and Smith's daughter and you may see the song for what it is, less than OK. The repetitiveness of the chorus could make you want rip your ears off, not whip your hair back and forth. The final chorus alone repeats the line "I whip my hair back and forth" over 25 times with no interruption making it sound like a broken record. The actual lyrics of the song are decent and her voice is good (when it's not being auto-tuned). Her video is kid friendly video and entertaining, but do you really think music has gotten so bad that songwriters can't even pen enough lyrics to fill a three minute tune?

Mosque In Manhattan... 9/11 not a good reason not to build

uslims are planning to build a mosque and community center in Lower Manhattan near the World Trade Center attack and people are in an uproar, are you serious? How dare the people who are supposed to uphold the freedoms of U.S. citizens try to deny them?
The argument is it is insensitive for Muslims to build where so many were killed by Islamic extremists. Why do certain people and factions of U.S. society want to act as if the only people killed on September 11, 2001 were “traditional looking” Americans?  Muslims and people with characteristics of the terrorists, who attacked the United States on that day, also died. Here are the names of a few of them:
·         Shabbir Ahmad (45 years old; Windows on the World; leaves wife and 3 children)
·         Touri Bolourchi (69 years old; United Airlines #175; a retired nurse from Tehran)
·         Abdul K. Chowdhury (30 years old; Cantor Fitzgerald)
·         Mohammad S. Chowdhury (39 years old; Windows on the World; leaves wife and child born 2 days after the attack)
·         Ramzi Attallah Douani (35 years old; Marsh & McLennan)
·         Syed Fatha (54 years old; Pitney Bowes)
·         Salman Hamdani (NYPD Cadet)
·         Aisha Harris (21 years old; General Telecom)
·         Shakila Hoque (Marsh & McLennan)
·         Mohammad Shah Jahan (Marsh & McLennan)
·         Mohammed Jawarta (MAS security)
·         Sarah Khan (32 years old; Cantor Fitzgerald)
·         Taimour Khan (29 years old; Karr Futures)
·         Boyie Mohammed (Carr Futures)
·         Rahma Salie & unborn child (28 years old; American Airlines #11; wife of Michael Theodoridis; 7 months pregnant)
·         Khalid Shahid (25 years old; Cantor Fitzgerald; engaged to be married in November)
·         Mohammed Shajahan (44 years old; Marsh & McLennan)
·         Naseema Simjee (Franklin Resources Inc.'s Fiduciary Trust)
·         Robert Elias Talhami (40 years old; Cantor Fitzgerald)
·         Michael Theodoridis (32 years old; American Airlines #11; husband of Rahma Salie)

The terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Centers are bad people within the Islamic religion. There are bad people in every religion, of every race, culture, gender, and age group. Should a group of people with similar characteristics and backgrounds be held accountable for the actions of a few? And if so, the government needs to start rounding up and interrogating people who have characteristics and background similar to Timothy McVeigh, the extremist who blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma, killing more than a hundred men, women, and children. His terrorist attack against the United States government was the worst on American soil prior to September 11TH.
Are the Sept 11th attacks being used as an excuse to perpetuate bigotry and violate people’s constitutional rights?
