Did you watch it?
I watched it yesterday. The whole thing. It was a little entertaining and a little moving too. I guess it says something about where our country has come when a man, who fifty years ago, probably would have had to use a separate toilet has been elected to the highest office in our gov't. But why did it have to end with a supposed reverend spewing the BULLSHIT line "when white will do right"?
Was that really necessary? On that day of all days? When a black man takes the oath of office as president of the United States? I'd say it probably took a few whites to do right for that to happen! Wouldn't you? Up until then, I was pretty proud of my country. Well, that's not fair, I've always been proud of my country, but, up until then, I was proud of the moment, maybe that's a better way to put it.
But really, is Obama a black man as black people are usually referenced or usually reference themselves in this country? Most people that claim to be African/American are descendants of slaves. Obama's not. He's a second generation immigrant to this country. His mother was born here and she's white, but his father, the black part of his roots was born in Africa. So, he's the son of immigrants like most of the rest of us. I wonder how long it will take people to start saying he ain't black enough for them?
And really, shouldn't this be about the once again, smooth transition of power from one president to another? The fact that for 230 years we've been passing the torch of leadership in our country from one person to another without so much as a smack in the back of the head? That even when we disagree in this country, it's still more about the idea of America then anything else?
And tell me why is the biggest news story of the day what Michelle wore to all the balls last night? Who give a rats ass!! All morning long, no matter what news channel I switch to they're talking about Mr.s Pres's dress! I DON'T CARE!
I also heard that my country is so hung up on this dumbass fashion thing that when people heard Obama's kids were wearing J. Cruz, whoever the hell that is, people surfing the web crashed the designers web site! How materialistic can we get here people? Holy Mackeral!
Here's another one I heard this morning that really gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Apparently, Hollywood loves this president, so that means there are gonna be a lof of, what this little bimbo on MSNBC called, A-listers, hanging around the whitehouse for the next four years. Let's hope not! Some of the dumbest people on the planet come out of Hollywood and the list toppers for most ridiculous are usually those they call A-listers!
Like I said before, I'm willing to give the guy a chance. I think he loves our country and I think he'll try to do the right thing...it's just that nobody seems to know what that is right now...
Anyway, have a nice day!
