I know a lot of people right now who are hurting, in pain. It is a big topic to tackle but here goes . . . The opposite of pain is no pain. Perhaps I’m just not attached to life like others are. And before I get “suicide” emails, I am happy right now, so don’t get me wrong.

I count on people and 95% of the time they count on me and it works. Why should I ponder that nagging 5%? It’s the old adage — I’m walking down a road. On one side of the road are 95 people who love me and support me. On the other side of the road are 5 people who use me and play me like a fool and wouldn’t give me air if I were suffocating in an airless bottle. I decide to focus on the 95 people, the 95%, who are behind me, with me, encouraging me, dancing with me.

To the 5%, I’ve seen your ilk throughout my life and the one rule about your ilk is that you are cowardly and weak, all talk and no action. You love what you see at first but then you realize I am a man of my word and you run away because the truth scares you, your dreams scare you, your goals keep changing as you dodge your truth, as you choose to suffer and feel pain and wallow in it behind a big ass pose. If you can’t follow through on one dream then the other dreams will evaporate.


President Obama’s Speech Tonight or Political Discourse in America, Part 3

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Rep. Joe Wilson, Republican from South Carolina, called the President of the United States a liar tonight, in front of Congress, in front of the television cameras and the American people and most importantly, in front of the President’s wife, Michelle.  Can you imagine the outcry if a Democrat called a Republican President a liar on national television, in front of the Congress, the American people and his wife?  While I have witnessed unpatriotic behavior since President Obama was elected, I have never witnessed this level of vitriol in my life.  As long as the Republican party and its elected officials and members condone this behavior in their silence, their winks and nods, their “oh yes, Rep. Wilson should apologize” insincerity, I call them traitors, unfit to serve our country. 

I call out the birthers and the racists and the tea partiers who dare disrespect President Obama, the man who was “legally” elected to the office;  I call out my friends who send me lies via email forwards;  and especially I call out the racist South Carolinian, Rep. JOE WILSON — be careful.  Dressed in your Fox furs, you’re all beginning to look like the hatred you have in your hearts.
