the difference

?
It never stops
the culture shock one experiences when they travel from D.C. to GA and sometimes from GA to D.C. *
usually it is the people that shock me first, then the cheap prices, but now--and most esp seen last night-the cops.
And last night i figured out why.
Cops in GA, are like hunters...they see you, and they follow you, intimidate you, till you graze the yellow line, or forget your turn signal the ONE time all day. Then they and and 2 to 4our back up cars surround you and at that point you are going to jail...you don't have to do anything wrong...but when the lynchin party gets together they ain't goin home without a proper hanging.

Cops in D.C., unless you run someone over in front of them (even then), they are not stopping. I assume it is because they get paid $10,000 more than a Georgia Cop and don't depend heavily on ticket sales to make revenue. OOOOR it is because there are real issues facing Washingtonians every night and cops need to address those issues, not me running a yellow/red light ("yo officer that junk was like pink and i'm color blind")
My point is i don't like the style of policing in the south and it adds to that gloomy depressing feeling I (and others i've heard from) experince when they visit the south after a hiatus.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday break.
enjoy family and close friends, they are who matter most
Peace, Love and good Beer!





*please note that i refer to the state of GA, not one city, because true talk, most of north GA, from Bartow to gainesville is just one big city.

Ok so i've been debating on buying a flordia shirt ALL season long.
I AM A GEORGIA BULLDOG
but flordia is good, and i like Tebow.
SO yesterday, finally i run by the store to "look" at the shirt again, and it is GONE! the store is closing and all the team shirts are GONE! ok ok so i'm walking around the store, and there in the corner is a Flordia hoodie, My size! ok its a sign right and it is on sale for 6 bucks!? oh yea that is a sign.

I bought the hoodie
i get home late last night, in the first uhh ten minutes i hear from two people "eww why are you wearing that."
After the second comment, i riped off the hoddie, called my best friend to repent.

Beer of the Week-Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout



?
Yummy-
the problem is drank the beers so quickly with friends that i didn't have time to "review" the beer-and the 10.0% alcohol level will creep up to you...




Stouts
Ba- "A common profile amongst Stouts, but not in all cases, is the use of roasted barley (unmalted barley that is kilned to the point of being charred) which lends a dry character to the beer as well as a huge roasted flavor that can range from burnt to coffee to chocolate"

Brooklyn's Black Chocolate Stout is a Russian Imperial Stout-The King Of Stouts. In comparison RISs typically contain a dried fruit or chocolate taste. The thick motor oil feel is not for everyone, not even an average Guinness drinker. Check out a bottle next time you are out-you can traditional find these sold as singles at hometown bottle shop.
I recommend testing your sobriety after your second one--better to be safe than sorry!

Cheers!

You HAVE to Check Out This Dog

?

where is my bail out?

?
Fannie Mae Fat Cats Make Millions while company Fails Testify on Capitol Hill
Illinois Governor Taken into Custody for Allegedly Trying to Sell Obama's Vacant Senate Seat
15 Billion Dollar Bail "Loan" for the Big Three

(btw that is the fifth Illinois Gov. in forthy years to go to jail, and the last governor is still in jail)

Im not an economist, heck i never got higher than a B in math, so please check my math for me
AIG gets 150 Billions dollars in November plus 700 Billion dollars to bailout US Banks uh 850 Billion plus 15 Billion for the Big Three uh 865 Billion-that wasn't as hard as i thought it would be--i've never had to work with BILLIONS

I went to school, i did well, i did civil service, i did an "advanced" program, i work hard, i didn't give myself a 70 million dollar salary, i haven't laid off 1.2 million of my closest friends, i carpool, i'm frugal when i party
WHERE IS MY BAIL OUT?
can i write a letter? How do i apply and why should i have to? a 300 dollar stimulus check does not bail-out the typical American who suffers from this economy. The breadwin father who loses his job and the family who has to survive on moms part time job. The single parent who loses their house with a bamboozled loan.
865 billion/15 Million or so people is about 56,000 a person...thats enough to bail me out and get me a vacation for the next year or three (mind you my vacation involves a backpack and supplies :-P) I know 56,000 won't buy back a house-but it is a heck of a down payment, or a cushion til someone finds another job, pay off medical bills, student loans, the unnecessary American debts. 56,000 is a stimulus check-i'll write a proposal, bike over to the Hill, testify that i messed up and i need help, present my plan, and walk away with my check. Who wants to come with?

Beer of the Week: Shiner Bock Hefeweizen


?


Yuuuuuuuuuummmmmmyy!

Ba A south German style of wheat beer (weissbier) made with a typical ratio of 50:50, or even higher, wheat. A yeast that produces a unique phenolic flavors of banana and cloves with an often dry and tart edge, some spiciness, bubblegum or notes of apples. Little hop bitterness, and a moderate level of alcohol. The "Hefe" prefix means "with yeast", hence the beers unfiltered and cloudy appearance. Poured into a traditional Weizen glass, the Hefeweizen can be one sexy looking beer.

Often served with a lemon wedge (popularized by Americans), to either cut the wheat or yeast edge, which many either find to be a flavorful snap ... or an insult and something that damages the beer's taste and head retention.




This is my first Shiner, and after this one, i'll be sure to check out some of Shiner's other products. I killed a six pack of these bottles with out noticing, and when i did notice i was sad. I drink for flavour and I drink for drinkability, this Hefe-Weizen has both-i question if it is 50:50, and there is no need for a lemon or orange because there are plenty, maybe to many, in the bottle. A bit of an unpleasant acid/vinous aftertaste For 7 bucks a six pack there is no reason not to try this Texas's brew out.

Cheers!

BEER OF THE WEEK: Cranberry Lambic

Just in time for the Holidays Samuel Adams unleashes a Winter Classics Variety Pack, two bottles of six distinctive beers. And of the 6ix, Cranberry Lambic will likely catch your eye first and disappoint you the most. If you are like me the word "lambic" leaves you with a dumb look on your face. You can relax because this is not a real lambic. Just as champagne is not champagne unless it is bottled in Champagne, France :: a lambic is not a lambic unless it is brewed in Pajottenland, Belgium. Aside from that minor detail a lambic is brewed using spontaneous fermentation and possess a clear vinous finish, Cranberry Lambic does not-and that maybe a good thing.

Don't Drink This Cold-I'll be honest, this beer isn't great, but it does deserve more credit, the balance between cranberry and yeast is impeccable; the finish is crisp and light like a wine, less the vinous/lambic feel. It does great before, during and after dinner, this unique "Boston Lambic" is worth an unbiased try. Buy the Variety Pack, (the beer is only available in the VP, and was M.I.A. for the last two year) you get 5ive awesome beers and one iffy one, and if you hate it you can pass it off to a friend.

Eat Drink and be Merry.

dammit

?
I was talking to Cory Fox late last week and the conversation about the holidays came up. Cory, myself, and Sts, are the only people i know who haaaaaate the holidays...the very thought of them brings me anger/rage/annoyance. I don't know why really-but until Jan 1st, 2009 i am going to be one angry smartelect ball of gloom.
For starters, i hate how on Thanksgiving/Xmas/New Years i have to endure the noise of two dozen extra text- "Happy Thanksgiving!"-"happy thanksgiving!" yadda-it is better this year because i have unlimited text, but in years past when i didn't, Ewwww i use to get so mad!

This year is the first year that i am not having a Thanksgiving...i don't know how i feel about that yet-i freaked out at 10:30 last night and ran to shoppers to buy stuffing-then proceeded to make my grandfathers oyster stuffing, though i haven't had it since 2000, and i never actually saw how he made it. I want to call my folks but they are island hoping and i'd call my sister but i'm almost positive we've never spent a Thanksgiving together, so to call her today would be like calling her any other day.
So i'm gonna go play some rockband with my cuz and go to work. I can already feel my blood pressure rising....the same way i feel after hearing MMBOP more than twice in a year.

Excuse me, Missss. ...Reluctantly she rolls down her window. I bullshit--I like your bumper sticker, I’m considering trading in my truck for a car similar to yours, how do you do on gas?LIIIEEES- I think she grinned, she looks at her funky PT gauges for what? the answer? She sees it! Looking at me she says close to 20. Riight. So I go. Oh really? Nevermind then, I average 24. I roll up my window, but I have to sit there because the light is still red. I don’t care that she is looking at me or that her window is still down or that she knows...

Effect and Affect

Which of these sentences are correct?

1. Rising oil prices will have an effect on nearly everyone.
2. Her emotional outburst was purely for effect.
3. The new policies go into effect next month.
4. The trade embargo effected the rise in oil prices.
5. Rising oil prices affect nearly everyone.
6. The elderly couple next door was severely affected by the cold this winter.
7. The psychologist on the witness stand noted the alleged murderer’s disturbing affect during the confession.

All of these sentences correctly employ “effect” and “affect.”

In most situations, we use “effect” as a noun and “affect” as a verb.

This is one of those cases where it is important to remember that possessive pronouns never take apostrophes, even though possessive nouns do (see it’s/its). “Who’s” always and forever means only “who is,” as in “Who’s that guy with the droopy mustache?” or “who has,” as in “Who’s been eating my porridge?” “Whose” is the possessive form of “who” and is used as follows: “Whose dirty socks are these on the breakfast table?

alternative medicine

?

..i stink right now so i'll make this quick


Monday, I went out to dinner with some GU folks. At some point we talked about Acupuncture, Chiropractors, and other Alternative medicine, yadda. This was the second time in a week that the conversation was brought up. I'm not one for pills or meds, or drs period. But I def don't subscribe to the "A.M" crowd, like my mother, sister and from what i've learned Amanda too.

TUESDAY, i wake up and can't move my flipping neck....the pain extends from the neck to my right shoulder. VERY VERY BAD I've always had lower back pains (and by "always" i mean, post Americorps), and then two weeks ago i felt a 'pop' in the middle of my back. So in short there is something VERY WRONG.

So i call my mom, my mom calls her brother, my uncle, my uncle calls me. I go "yea, i'll take a pill and go to PT" he was like "No No, you need to go to the Chiropractor so you can figure this out,"... me- "uhhh those aren't real Doctors." He goes "Lauren, i felt the same way, but after he did what he did, i could have married that man"----and my Uncle is NOT gay friendly.
SO Uncles orders, i'm going to get my back realigned.

And maybe i'll be enlightened....it will take a lot more for me to do Acupuncture.
Maybe i'll get some medicinal herbs....



Side Note, has anyone heard the CNN story about some husband who named is Baby Sarah-McCain Palin...WITHOUT TELLING HIS INDUCED WIFE. Sts sent me a text this morning to tell me, i haven't read it yet, but i will post the link when i find it.

You know what

what?

Never mind

Also, last night I had a table of five guys come in. They were from out of town. One guy, Greg, and I got into a deep conversation after he asked “Lauren, McCain or Obama?”
“No comment!”
He pries “come on, McCain or Obama,”
So I tell him the timeline-“ I was undecided until last month, it was Tuesday during the DNC. Obama named Biden as his running mate-It made me raise my eyebrows, then wedensday Obama gave his speech, Thursday AM, McCain picked Palin, and I was done”
The table laughs. Then a long conversation about Palin’s incompetence.
Which brings me to a point–If everyone knows what an idiot, and incompetent leader she is, then why is she a potential vice president? Her foreign policy is “I’m neighbors with Russia,” when asked “what foreign newsfeeds do you read?” she CANT answer the QUESTION. Seriously, is this some kind of joke!? If anything, I can’t vote for McCain, because McCain lacks common sense. Who, with basic education, can possibly believe that Palin is the most qualified (woman if must) in the GOP to co-lead this country? McCain. Who, with basic education, thinks it is a good idea to pick fights with several countries despite the fact that his/her country is in a depression, whos military is spread thin, whos country is littered with starving, beating children (ie kids in the freezer), unemployed professionals, forecloser victims and Hurricane “refugees?” McCain. Is there a hidden camera somewhere? Is this really happening?
I’m infuriated, and I’ve never been like this about this upcoming election, I’ve stayed neutral and silent. NOT ANYMORE. This is worse then Bush/Gore-at least the nation did not know what an incompetent fool Bush was/is. We can see, thru his actions, what an incompetent candidate McCain is.
Seriously, Alberta is doing a mad hiring of U.S. citizens...but damn it is cold up there.
Also, Greg spoke with me about a state lobbying position in Illinois it is cold up there too....hmmm yeaaaaa.

However i will admit when something stinks, even if the stench is coming from myside of the fence. So if you are a republican who cannot admit when you are weak or the party is weak, Just ignore this.


PBS has an online poll posted asking if Sarah Palin isqualified. Apparently the right wing knew about thisin advance and are flooding the voting with YES votes.
The poll will be reported on PBS and picked up bymainstream media. It can influence undecided votersin swing states.

Some people...

?
I heard from an Ex-"friend" this week. We were bf's until she picked her abusive boyfriend over me. For the first two days i was crushed. By day three i was over it. I realized it was her damn problem not mine. We all have issues but not all of us are mature enough or ready to admit them. And i'm a good friend, i know this because i have a lot of them... in person, i'm not talking about the "pierce queer kids in cyber space"
So when i talked (facebooked) to my Ex-BF this week, i cracked a joke, and she came back at me with "Ouch, i'm sensitive. . . D.C. has hardened you" Ha, well maybe, but last time i checked i've always been borderline apathetic.

SO this week i also let go of a "friend" i use the word loosely because i feel like people who can just toss people out of their lives nonchalantly were never friends, just parasites, manipulative or lonely and when i happened to be there. Its funny, because i went thru the same emotions i went thru when i lost X. I was Crushed, probably worse then a break up CRUSHED, for maybe 24 hours. Then i had the Eureka moment. When i become friends with people i shouldn't look at them, i should look at the people currently around them....or not around them. They say the same is true with you start dating someone. You should examine how their last break up began and ended. Same is true with potential friends. How many true friends do they currently have, how do they meet other people, how many relationships do they retain from their past.
Its like an equation: if someone has ex's how many? and if someone went to college, how many friends do they retain? divided the two numbers, that is the percentage or likely hood that y'alls friendship will work. Ok so i bullshited that.....BUT SEE i'll admit when i fuck up! Others cannot or have a hard time admitting, like when one talks about their "standards," and "credibility." But in all realness lack both (this based on their past "relationships.") I can feel bad for them, give them their space, but in time i learn to just forgive and forget about it. Some people are insecure...and again some of us are not mature enough or ready to admit them.
And i need to Do Me right now so i can't worry about it right now. I know i'm a good friend, if one fails too appreciate it then que chu-cha! I learned that one in college, its slang for "WHATEVER." but don't say it around someone from Peru, Columbia or uhhh i forget the other country.....

Some people are just plain dumb asses. JOHN MCCAIN. don't get me wrong, i def voted for the old man in the primary, even had the sticker on my car, But this BS about "oh well i'm going to stop campaigning because the country is in a financial crises" WTF? Dude, we are under 50 days, the country is not going to change with the senate offering a buyout. And MCCAIN where were you when all this crap was going down? McCain almost NEVER voted while senator, (i'll find this record online, because right now i only have it in hard copy) but you think it matters that now you give a fuck? Old man, you've lost it! FIrst Palin then this, i respect you a lot, but i'm not gonna stand for any more bullshit. If McCain was not running for president he wouldn't give two flipps! Six weeks left...Canada here i come?

Strange Events

?
So i go to the grocery store. I pick my items, pay and head towards the exit. Ten meters before the door a lady stops me: "excuse me can you help me?"
I'm assuming she wants money. She is African. On skin, she looks complacent, but underneathe she looks in desprete need of something...
"what do you need?" I ask. I am in a rush, my dog is in the car, i have many things to do, i want to go home.
She looks up at me, almost embarrassed, "can you write on a cake?"
I am so dumbfounded that i admit, without realizing what i am committing to that "yes, i have experience in pastry."
When i left Atlanta, i was working as EXPO of a fine dinning restaurant...the only problem was, we didn't have customers (Southerns are more thrifty than Yankees when the economy went tough, the rich stopped spending long before the poor did).
In my down time at Aquaknox, we, Summer and I, practiced our calligraphy. Only instead of ink we used melted semi-chocolate, and instead of paper, we used $65 glass and china plates.


The women and I, walk back to the cake. She pays for it, and is asked by the cashier "so you found someone?" Now i think this is a prank. I look at the exit for cops, i look up for cameras. I check my basket "am i accidentally stealing something?" i think. Before i realize i am following the two women to a back area, behind the counter of the bakery, with a cake, my shopping basket, my cell phone, which is blowing up.
The lady who first approach me does not speak English well, i have trouble understand. I do get that she wants "Happy Birthday" written on the cake....i have trouble writing with a pen and paper, but icing and..and whatever, i can do! Only she ask me to write in cheap green granulated sugar frosting, not $6 dollar per ounce, imported, perfectly melted semi chocolate...and then she ask for her sister's names to be placed on the cake. "Uhh ok, lets see what happens," is my response.

It was something out of a movie, and when i was done, with what i consider to be the worst pastry art i've ever attempted. The smile on her face is almost worth the 20 extra minutes i spent in the store.
I can't help but laugh the entire time. And as i exit stage right, the cashiers and the dyke security guard that ALWAYS finds a way to slow down my shopping experince praise and admire the cake. A cake which i consider a disaster.


the short. I enjoy helping strangers. You get something out of it. Something that money will not give you. I hope her sister enjoys the cake. I hope the women tells her sister what she went thru to get "Happy Birthday Florence" on the damn cake. And most of all, i hope she appreciates it.

weird, but yea, that was the end of my friday, and my beer went south (warm) by the time i got back to my car.

no proof reading. I'm buzzed and sleep deprived.

Team USA, or Team Phelps?

?
A majority of the World catches the fever that is the Olympics. The competition, watching the best of the best take action at their given talent. The colors, the anthems, the tears, the sweat, the blood. It really brings the pride out of you, similar to that blanket of pride that hits a nation after they've been attacked (9/11, Euro train bombings, Hiroshima) only this pride is a result of something positive.

Sooo with being said, and the old cliche "there is not "i" in Team." So tell me why when the Men's U.S. Swim team swam the 4 x100 relay that Phelps got ALLLLL the credit, when he wasn't evenin the lead during his LEG, the others had to bring it back for the Gold FOUR PEOPLE SWAM. Could you say the names of the other three swimmers?
No? understood, because NBC didn't talk about them! so you know Cullen Jones, Jason Lezak, and Garrett Weber-Gale are the reason the US took gold in this race, and mainly, it was Lezak DAMNNN dude what an awesome race...missed it?
here (watch it quick before NBC caps it!)


my point is, there are 200+ men and women who are representing the U.S. Olympic Team they deserve credit too.
Thank you and ROCK ON! GO TEAM USA!

July 31st/August 1, 2005

?
Its almost like 9/11 the day that you'll never forget

Ever since that day i move a little more cautiously. I check my surroundings before i enter my truck. When it is dark outside i peer down every dark alley, every dark drive way, just to make sure...i caution my friends when they walk home alone at night...to put it short i do everything differently now.


I'll never understand why G-d does what he does, allows what he does, takes who he does. I stopped trying four months after the title date. But I hate when August floats back around because then i can't help but question the actions of the higher power.... I'd lost friends before him, but never to a random act of violence: two punk teenagers after a joyride in a freakin Camry?...and to think, he was, is, one of the few people i've encountered whose essence lacked negativity, suffering or pain. He was genuinely a good guy. So why...

...we all take a second look behind us before entering our cars alone, at night.
Brett, you are missed by family and by a Tribe, that will never forget you, or this day.

*A Reminder

?
When you hear on the news "X number of U.S. Soiliders Killed in Y" remember that each number represents one person, the people related to that person, and the US community surrounding X's family and friends. Its easy to lose attention, to let the information pass by you unabsorbed.
CaseExample: Cover story of Time Magazine July 28th, 2008 Cover Story: The Right War by Roy Stewart

"There has been a dramatic series of recent attacks by the Taliban: a mass assault on a jail freed hundreds of prisoners, and a suicide bombing outside the Indian embassy on July 7 killed 40 and injured over 100. Many of these assaults are planned and supported from safe havens across the border in the tribal areas of Pakistan. Western troop casualties are climbing; the last two months exceeded the monthly death toll in Iraq. On July 13, nine U.S. soldiers were killed when Taliban fighters swarmed over their base in the eastern province of Kunar — the worst attack in three years."

I remember hearing about that...
Sunday July 13th, 4:30am, U.S. troops of the 2nd Battalion, 503d Infantry Regiment (Airborne), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, in Vicenza , Italy, while on search for captured troops, were ambushed in the providence of Kunar, Afghanistan.
"The worse attack in three years," claimed the lives of two Georgians, Cpl. Jonathan R. Ayers, 24, of Snellville and Cpl. Matthew Phillips, 27, from NorthEast, Georgia. Matt was a Son(his mother passed away in 2003 of cancer), a brother (his younger sister Mary had a baby the same day...), a good friend (to Shanks and many others), and a good husband(to Eve, she gave me Sadie Mae...) Can you imagine that number representing, your Son, Sister, college friend, spouse. Someone who passed away for your,our, freedom, now a statistic...
Remember it happens everyday. This "War on Terror" has claimed the life of over 4,000 United State Citizens since 2003. Thats 4,000 communities affected, over 4,000 parents, thousands of siblings, thousands of friends and acquaintances etc. all these connections that trickle out like roots of a large tree, and extend in all directions of and through life, these lives cover much ground.
I'm just sayin...
remember those number represent people, a family member, a friend, a life like mine or yours.

And remember we still have thousands serving over sea, We should be proud of them, no matter how against the "War on Terror" we are and we should NOT forget the true meaning behind those numbers...

(- to +) or how to make a bad night, good

?
...next i'll master how to make a bad week, good!

the day was long. I got to the office at 8 am. The previous night i left at 8 pm. I am doing an internship...i work for free but for reason.
So it is friday, and i have two tickets to a sold out Dark Knight...and yes i have a movie date, my fourth! First, maja-who left the country out of spite; Second, Maja's "friend," who i later find out is trying to get in Maja's pants (i nicked that one); Third, my cuz...he, like we all did at that age, got grounded; Four, my co-classmate/co-work/ . . . who flat out bailed...sooo i go to the theater, tired, alone and slightly frustrated/pissed/upset/longing/depressed/ugh but mostly just tired. I find free street parking (plus #1 so now i'm at negative three) I pick up my tickets (pre ordered mind you or i wouldn't have bothered) and walk away, back to my truck. Half way down Wisconsin i over hear a gentlemen behind me "that F-ing sucks, now we gotta wait another day to see the damn movie." I confront him, he pays 20 bucks for each ticket (negative two...getting better). I'm content,only content, i count my losses, and walk to my truck, only i am lost..
I hit, what i consider to be a dead end, and i contemplate turning around, when i am bum rushed by what i think is a drunk or homeless dude.
I am to tired to realize until this drunk bum says "You're to cool to return my calls," that this "drunk bum" is actually my boy Jake (jump to +1) and i haven't returned his calls, i've been at work (in one capacity or another) ALL WEEK. Only i dig hanging with Jake. Jake, i haven't seen in almost a year, and Jake, i actually look forward to seeing (MCC for life!). He is with a hott chick who i am happy to hear is "his girl." He ask if i want to get drinks...i don't, but it want to hang out with people who "get it," (because so many act like they do, say they do, and Don't) so we walk a block and catch a pub that has cheap beers just because a certain baseball team is playing...Others come, they are equally, at least on the surface, good, fun, people (+2) and hours later i get to drive home buzzed on the highway (something i haven't done in years...mind you i am the person, who in college, use to claim a gold medal in DUI---gainesville/Athens ga will do that to you..)(+3)

to make it better, folks i met last week-end called me to hang tonight, buut i'm going to bed now, i have work in the am.
Not bad, not bad

And what to do if?

?
i can't get her voice out of my head...

Re:Your Hate Only Drives Me Sucka -- post from my bro



and this







Ok... I've tried to post this 3 times... hopefully this is the last attempt.



I go out to get the mail a few hours ago and I'm greeted with the above debachery. Appartently somebody thought it would be a good idea to destroy mine and my neighbors property. Ya know, I see things all the time that I don't like or nessecarily agree with but I don't take liberties such as the above examples. It's like what was this person thinking? "Hey... Obama, fuck that guy! I'm gonna hold a lighter to this poster for a few minutes.... yeah that's better!" It was probably that or "NO NIGGERS IN THE WHITE HOUSE!"




But that's the thing... I live in a predominatel BLACK neighborhood. I mean there's a sprinkle of white and latino here and there but mostly black folks. So logic would lean mean to believe that a black person did this. Now what's up with that friends? I mean c'mon.. what black person with any shred of common sense would destroy a poster supporting the first REAL black candidate for president? I mean WTF dude? Where's the logic in that? If anything I should be getting comments about how they can acquire one of those posters. But instead someone chose to destroy it.




Black people cmon son! What's with these shenanigans? Im so tired of this black on black bullshit. Don't these people realize how incredible that the front runner for the Democratic party is A BLACK MAN! Segregation wasn't that long ago friends... our parents lived through it. So did our grand parents. We're talking 40-50 yrs ago.. depending on when certain towns decided to act right. And now there's a legit candidate for president who's a black man(well to clarify his dad's black, his mom is white but we all know he's perceived as a black dude. Lets not be silly) and people refuse to embrace how great that is! Even Jesse Jackson... JESSE JACKSON! What the fuck's going on?





I actually read a post today on MSNBC that said even though Obama is leading in the polls things may be different in November because the average American isn't willing to admit they don't feel comfortable voting for a black guy. So people are more willing to LIE bout who they'd vote for than vote for a dude because his SKIN COLOR IS DIFFERNT! Ugh... I think racism is a mental disease. Hell if alcoholism is a disease I think racism should be too. I swear the more things change the more they stay the same. I long for the day where my grandchildren will hopeful have live in a society where these types of shenanigans are over and done with.



Because what does one say in the face of insolent ignorance? People love to not know... people love to believe things that aren't true because the truth is to hard to deal with I suppose? I dunno and I'm growing weary of trying to understand.





So to the deuter responsible for destroying mine and my neighbors property... thanks. You just gave me a reason to give Obama more mone towards his campaign. This time I think I'll buy 2 and if you burn those I'll buy 4. And if those get toasted I'll cop 8! And if you get rid of those I'll make a sign surrounding the property made out of Obama signs, and then create a makeshift flag pole with a flag of Obama's ear to ear smile. You can't stop me. Your hate only drives me futher towards my ambitions and goals. Fucking asshole.....

I mean honestly i'm upset at powder springs, Because i am not surprised.
(my mom on the other hand (after i fwd her your text) said to me "this is war"..ex black panther go figure)
But then logic and conversation sat in. This is a fight, but this is not a war. This is a fight to educate, this is a fight to bring people, and more specially OUR PEOPLE together. I mean FUCKING Jesse FUCKING Jackson made a Mockery of himself INSULTING Americans only hope, the token "spokes person" of the black community since the late 80's.? When the fuck will people SEE that it is no longer "the man" bring us down, that it is US who bring each other down?
I'm sick of this shit man. And naturally the man who is trying to bring us together is the man getting the blunt of the pain, the igonrate white folk, the ignorant black and brown, the mis informed non-english speaking americas.

WE MUST EDUCATE
that is the only answer. And i swear on my Grandfathers grave if i end up back in Atlanta, I will run for some form of political office.
I can't stand idle man, we, the educated, the strong, the dedicated need to stand up.


i can't stomach this talk with myself anymore...ALERT THE FUCKING PRESS

Blast from the past (feminist should avoid this one ok?)

?
I labeled someone the other day (eg i guessed her car) based on her personality, and i was right! (almost down to the year and color) so i found this (and it took me forever)and after a few revisions i am reposting it from Myspace.com/pimpinguide, i think its two years old, maybe older. I didn't write the first one, just helped, if you are going to get offended, or complain, just don't. Write a letter to the President instead.
.
.
.
"Granted i'm a little buzzed and i'm pissed off at women in general. Buuuut i truly have been meaning to do this. "Do what Chase?" i've been meaning to give you guys (and women who like girls) a heads up on what kind of girls to be weary of. Its a long list, so i'll break it down to segments. This one

CAR Stereotypes

(remember i live in GA, this may not apply to all areas, and there are, of course, exceptions to every rule)

1. Hot chicks drive CIVICS...i'm serious, i've been around for sometime now and i've noticed girls who drive civics are where its at. 90% of the time a girl with a civic is reliable, caring (when you care about her and treat her with respect) and will give their all to you. The same is true for Accords about 70% of the time. But that other 30% beware, they are usually full of themselves and simultaneously lack self-esteem and "are afraid to be alone."(RUUUN!)Oh and BTW just because they are sweet, or caring doesn't mean they are smart or have common sense.

2. Hot chicks also drive BMW's...but 90% of them are stuck up, and or think they are better than the average Joe. And ALL OF THEM (if they are under 30) are daddies girls, so they are use to having everything handed to them on a silver plater...and that is a tough thing to keep up with, and usually its not even worth it. Typically if they are handed everything on a silver platter, they secretly think they are better then you or lack self worth, or the desire to become anything efficient (less house wives) It takes money to get to these rich spoiled women, and 80% of the 90% ARE NOT WORTH THE STRESS. If anything, keep them around for networking! and for friendship (they are shady as heck but its worth a try)

3. PSYCHO Hot chicks drive JEEPS....Folks i'm serious ok, and when i say psycho i'm not saying they are not worth spending SOME time with, but beware OKAY, Jeep chicks are either A.) Obviously have something "off" about them from the get go (i.e. proceed with caution) or B.) will end up freaking out on you when you least expect it. (BreakDown is 50% of Grands Cherokees, and of 90% Liberties, 80% Wranglers and Larados.

4. FAT CHICKS DRIVE MUSTANGS....or closet (but obvious) lesbians....I know i'm going to step on some toes with this one. I live in GA, i know a lot of women/girls with mustangs. In the south, if a chick...women, drives a mustang it usually means she lacks self-esteem, is overweight OR that she really wants to be a with another women. Don't get me wrong...i know about 2 really really hott awesome straight chicks who drive mustangs....but i know about 98 not hot, not awesome weirdo lesbians chicks that drive mustangs.

5. BEWARE OF CHICKS WITH JETTAs...well 25% of them, and those 25% are FUCKED UP enough for me to warn you about the entire group. But the rest of them, the other 75% are great, almost up there with hondas, my ex-finance drove a Jetta, and i still think she rocks. Buuut big things to look out for: either to emotional there or not all(and i mean they don't give a CRAP about anything but themselves, or get way to attached), and most have NO CLUE...they'll say they have every clue in the book, they'll say they get it, buutt not so much. It think they mature slower then most girls..or just enjoy being clueless. However they are super book smart, fun to be around, if you can keep them as friends, do so. Still my ex-date/fool around buddy also drove a jetta and MY GOODNESS i couldn't wait to get rid of her!( Kindaa creepy how "right" she always was..even though she was obviously wrong) So eh, I'm open to feedback here.

6. Beware of chicks who drive large SUV's...not specific, though i don't believe anyone under 5 foot 6 should drive anything larger than a jeep Cherokees--or that Kia thing..ITS NOT SAFE FOR THE REST OF US!!! Typically this is a sign that their dad KNOWS that they are bad drivers...or that they have over baring( CONTROLLING) parents...if they are grown, it means they know they are bad drivers (so you should try to take the keys as much as possible)

*IF a girl drives a stick shift (not jeep girls!, but the others) she is a cool chick and her desirability and sanity goes up 10 to 30%, depending.

BREAK!

Go GSU

?

Looks like Georgia Tech has some Competition for parking GSU is set to start game play in the 2010 football season. And better yet, they just picked a coach! Bill Curry, doesn't sound familiar? yea, well GSU is going to pay him $350,000 a year/5ive year contract, plus 50,000 incentive bonuses AND a $500 a month car allowance. Sweet gig, and Curry, despite his lack of mane recognition, has a a pretty extensive football career (<~~PDF doesn't work, look for link on the left )

Georgia folks who love College football (that is about 75% of us and the 15 of the remaining 25% are mentally and legally incapacitated) know that Georgia's second largest school Kennesaw State University is working on its freshmen football team. And i assure you, come 2010(ish), Georgia fans are going to have two more power house teams to be proud of.

Economy.
I hear back about my final student loan tuesday. At this point i've earned enough to study and live in dc, but not enough to eat, drink, chill, pay bills, drive, buy dog food, to live.
My loan officer says "well you know in these times its nearly impossible to get a loan,-"Yo newsflash Jon, you should keep those comments to yourself"-- but I have hope that this will work out. I also have plans "F" and "G" and then i'm back to P7.
Why, in a country known for it's easy access to opportunity, a country whose average IQ drops with the premier of every new reality show, is it so hard to obtain education?
I have a better chance of getting a house and a car. Wait i did just bought a car! and it cost less Before financing than my education.
I hate to sound old fashion but i remember the good ole days when getting into a good school, was the hard part...

i thought singles got back $600 bucks from the stimulus package, i just got mine and its only $300 bucks! What is that?! Less than a third of what i got back in my return, A freakin bill thats what it is. How am i gonna stimulate the economy by paying off debt? (hint: that is a rhetorical question, but the answer is I CAN'T)
Perhaps some...maybe super young adults (17-20), college kids or just anyone with zero "real responsibility...." will stimulate the economy by blowing their 300bills on a cloths, pot, beer, cigs, and other random junk. Cool!
Well its better than nothing.

Can't Sleep Clowns will eat Me

?
I've been going out a lot lately, partly due to the fact that I am leaving Atlanta soon and I am trying to "bask in the ambiance." But maybe also to distract from the overall scheme of things:
I AM MOVING ACROSS COUNTRY IN TWO WEEKS WITH NO PLACE TO LIVE, NO MONEY, and A Dog
--- Just an acceptance letter (to Georgetown) in my hand and the little sanity i have left.
little nervous....
...no, i am freaking out


buuuuut i'd much rather be worried about lets say, Georgetown, than who is seeing who, and who sleeping with who and isn't suppose to know and finding out the ex is the boss of yadda yadda yadda "Ya Trick Yaa!" (...i still can't believe a 17 year old became a millionaire off of that song)

I almost don't want to leave Atlanta this time its not that bad...wow, i said that?

Atlanta people are concerned, it seems, mostly with chilling, getting by and Drama. Chilling cause its easy (i've never met so many people taking the 7 plus year college route..and still go straight thru...but hey why not?), Getting By, because the economy is ROUGH right now on everyone but esp my generation, those with little wealth and a O' LOTTA debt! and the Drama because its a cheap easy way to give people that "i'm important" feeling. And its temporary if need be, so it a great way to bring excitement to an otherwise boring life.
I like the idea of just minding my own business, loving all no matter what (yes, even if you don't like, or agree with them), and (my fav) getting a meaningful life!


I can't stay in a place where I DO NOT GROW:
I think working in a restaurant again was a good and bad idea, good because I've met a lot of kick ass people. BAD, because i've meet a lot of selfish, IGNORANT, greedy, DUMB, drama filled self righteous (mainly Buckhead) people that make me understand why this world is headed for self destruction. "Lay down with Dogs, and you'll Wake up with Fleas,"---Ben Franklin.


The complacent, the number of people who concentrate on "Just Being" gives me chill bumps. So i gotta jet cause whatever game was playing when i got here wasn't the game I got tickets for.


No to spending time/money getting a degree in order to "serve" people the rest of ones life, and i am not, and will never knock anyone who does so (or exotic dancers), it is good money, it does buy houses, and cars. But not fucking happiness,
I'd rather be dead broke on the side of the road during legally pro-bono work, or anything GOOD for people, and happy, than, waste away the talent, and the intellect that i worked so hard to obtain.

In D.C. i feel like everyone serves some kind of significant purpose to the overall scheme of things, and stats don't lie, the DC area (MoCo) is about 60% smarter than the overall Atlanta area. Meaning 9 out of 10 people i run in to will be able to carry on a decent conversation, compared to the 3 to 10 ratio in the "Dirty South" My genes are getting wet just thinking about all the "brain-EE-acts"

i'm rambling.....six hours of sleep to 48 hours of Go will do that to you.....where's the nyquil?.....

not gonna proof read

Real Quick Like

?
This is my week of NO DRINKING. definitely maxed out my party intake this week. Don't get me wrong, i had a lot of fun, but i am getting to old for this.
So

1. D.B. Hobbs, Great Buy, not bad taste, Worse hangover you'll ever have off of four beers! (if you don't usually get a hangover off of four beers)





2. Doesn't matter who you are, or who you love. There is an awesome show on Thursday at MSR RAW TALENT 2008 is down to two! Come out and catch a great act the one and only SKYLER LEE!!!!!!!!! Click on the link, you'll get all the info for the show. $3 Jager Bombs too!








3. and this for serious ...Sean Bell..was shot dead by Three Off duty, plain clothes Cops (two black one white, and No that doesn't matter) 50 times. Yes 5ive zer0. Meaning at least two of the officers had to reload. Sean Bell, shot dead November 25th 2006, hours before he was to be married, was unarmed outside of a night club.
Why officers, off duty and plain clothed, are allowed to go out, and possibly drink, at clubs, AND STILL CARRY THEIR GUNS is beyond me.
What is farther beyond me is that a Queens City Judge (corrupted) ruled that all three Officers where not guilty of a crime. I rarely agree with Al Sharpton, but this Is INJUSTICE.
Don't be complacent with this society, its all kinds of wrong Justice for Sean Bell





4. the NFL draft is about to start [I got a Big Ole Smile on my Face!]...i said no more beer, but i have one Coors left, and they ARE sponsoring the draft, so i need to thank them in some way?
Matt Ryan is to not strong enough for Atlanta, Falcons need southern Blood on the field, they need DJ Shocley as a QB Hands down, thats my story and i'm sticking to it.
