  • NUBIAN QUEEN

    There’s something about Barack that warms my heart. I saw this quote somewhere, and i think its says alot.

    “Crispus Attucks was one of the first to die in the American Revolutionary War. Crispus Attucks died so that Rosa Parks could sit. Rosa Parks sat so that Martin Luther King Jr. could march. Martin Luther King Jr. marched so that Barack Obama could run and Barack Obama ran so that our children can fly”

    They are both good candidates (CLINTON/OBAMA), and as a “respected media source” (picture me snickering), YOU should be encouraging people to get out and JUST VOTE FOR SOMEBODY INSTEAD OF SITTING HOME AND WATCHING FROM THE SIDELINES.

    …It won’t make a difference. Unfortunately, and quite sadly, Obama is no different from the rest of congress – and therefore will be a typical president – especially in this time of wicked war and wicked foreign policy.

    DOMESTIC IMPACT OF THE WAR by DR. KING 1967.

    … In the past two months unemployment has increased approximately 15%. At this moment tens of thousands of people and anti-poverty programs are being abruptly thrown out of jobs and training programs to search in a diminishing job market for work and survival. It is disgraceful that a Congress that can vote upwards of $35 billion a year for a senseless immoral war in Vietnam cannot vote a weak $2 billion dollars to carry on our all too feeble efforts to bind up the wound of our nations 35 million poor. This is nothing short of a Congress engaging in political guerilla warfare against the defenseless poor of our nation.

    … In the past two months unemployment has increased approximately 15%.

It is disgraceful that a Congress that can vote upwards of $35 billion a year for a senseless immoral war in Vietnam cannot vote a weak $2 billion dollars to carry on our all too feeble efforts to bind up the wound of our nations 35 million poor. This is nothing short of a Congress engaging in political guerilla warfare against the defenseless poor of our nation.

    … The inflation of war cuts the pay of the employed, the pension check of the retired and the savings of almost everyone. Inflation has stopped creeping and has begun running. Working people feel the double impact of inflation and unemployment immediately. But Negroes feel its impact with crushing severity because they live on the margin in all respects and have no reserve to cushion shock. There is a great deal of debate about the nation’s ability to maintain war and commit the billions required to attack poverty. Theoretically the United States has resources for both. But an iron logic dictates that we shall never voluntarily do both for two reasons. First, the majority of the present Congress and the Administration, as distinguished from the majority of the people, is single mindedly devoted to the pursuit of the war. It has been estimated by Senator (Harkey) that we spend approximately $500,000 to kill a single enemy soldier in Vietnam. And yet we spend about $53 for each impoverished American in anti-poverty programs. Congress appropriates military funds with alacrity and generosity. It appropriates poverty funds with miserliness and grudging reluctance. The government is emotionally committed to the war. It is emotionally hostile to the needs of the poor.

    … Second, the government will resist committing adequate resources for domestic reform because these are reserves indispensable for a military adventure. The logical war requires of a nation deploy its well fought and immediate combat and simultaneously that it maintain substantial reserves. It will resist any diminishing of its military power through the draining off of resources for the social good. This is the inescapable contradiction between war and social progress at home. Military adventures must stultify domestic progress to ensure the certainty of military success. This is the reason the poor, and particularly Negroes, have a double stake in peace and international harmony. This is not to say it is useless to fight for domestic reform, on the contrary, as people discover in the struggle what is impeding their progress they comprehend the full and real cost of the war to them in their daily lives.

    It’s funny that a speech from 1967 100% apply to the situation in 2008. And the cycle will continue…

    Apparently, history repeats itself because Americans have yet to learn – which is partly due to our government’s deliberate dumbing down of America…but I digress.

  • my words

    Just voted for Obama!!!! I’m sooo fired up and ready to go!!!!Cant wait to see the results!!! And if you haven’t voted yet PLEASE get out there and make this count for something..we may never have this opportunity again!! Barack Obama 4 your momma!!!!!!!!!!

    @nahnah, I agree completely. Obama is just a puppet like the other candidates, no different from Hillary, McCain, or Romney. It doesn’t matter if Obama wins, it will still be the same thing. The only “change” is that the president will be black, if he even gets elected. The real presidential candidates have either had their characters smeared to hell and back, or have been completely ignored by every form of media, or both. Obama is NOT ending the war, he even said himself that he would invade Pakistan if needed. The problem is that nobody seems to notice, or care. Have anybody noticed why the media suddenly pays so much attention to this particular candidate? and a black one at that? I’ve never seen that much attention paid to Alan Keyes, and he’s been running for president forever.

    This country is not a democracy. The next president of the United States has already been chosen with the help of the media. Honestly, the way I see it, if voters did not educate themselves properly, the outcome will probably go as follows: Obama wins the democratic nomination, but McCain will win the presidency, or if Hillary will win the democratic nomination, the race to the presidency will be between Hillary and McCain. Even if Obama wins the presidency, he will still be controlled by pro-war lobbyists and large corporations. With this said, Obama gets put into office and nothing changes. Obama will be blamed for his failure to make the “changes” that he promised, and will make it exponentially harder for another black person to run for office in the future.

    I will vote for Obama because of what he stands for. Voting for him because he is black is the most irresponsible thing a person can do. Obama doesnt want the peoples support because he is black vote for him because you actually know and believe what he stands for.

  • IM SAYIN THO....U FEEL ME??!?!?

    i have a question,

    co workers and i were talking about this and one of them said:

    “America isnt ready for a woman in office nor a black man as well, its just a reason for one of them to get assasinated”…

    he wasnt saying it in a mean way but do any of yall think that?…has that even ran through any heads?…it ran through mine…

    its still running…

  • IM SAYIN THO....U FEEL ME??!?!?

    assasinated<—–oops typo

  • Lady Architet

    Some of you people make me so sick with “he won’t win” and act like yall know the basic setup of how everything goes…this same mentality is why a lot of black people are not ever happy wih who wins…we are o uick to knock one of ours down and then complain about why we don’t reall have anyone in office…Obama outside of being black is a great candidate…did yall pay attention to the amount of white voters he has also..if it were only cause he was black then no white people would care to vote for him.

    Nwachukwu:

    Wells said!

    1. The president is not picked by the people. He/she is in fact picked by the media. Just because you get up and walk freely to the voting booth doesn’t mean you’ve freely picked your candidate – because you’ve been subconsciously directed by the media. Just look at Paul, Kucinich, and Gravel. They’ve been completely shunned by the media – and that’s because the actually represent change – instead of the status quo. Now, whether or not you or anybody else agree with their change is another thing. But, at least, their records actually match their rhetorics.

    2. Research Obama’s record before he became a state senator. His record for the most part was very progressive. But, he’s been brought and sold by corporations and lobbyists.

    3. One must question why the pro-war media that assisted Bush & co in lying to us into this imperialistic war of conquest would be so pro Obama – a black so-called anti-war candidate of change?…? Seriously, when has American corporations been about change?

    I’ll give you something else to ponder…

    Can you imagine Bush kindly giving up his power in a few months? For some reason, it’s hard to imagine. So, I think Americans need to keep our eyes open because these thugs are capable of doing just about anything…
