How are you doing this morning? Seems like last night, around 10:30 a deal was made about our health care.
You know what kills me is that we spent so much time talking about abortions which is important, but really next to none about this individual mandate. The fact that Americans will be LOCKED UP, or TAXED up about what they want to do with their own bodies.
I thought about it this morning and searched where to find inspiration. Just what do I really want to say. See for folk like me, I am getting stronger and stronger. Why because I don't have anything. Couldn't afford no kids, wasn't allowed to keep no jobs so that those more "deserving" than I could, couldn't buy no house, no car note, none of that.
So each and every day, that I build be it trust, be it another five dollars in my pocket I win. B/c when you coming from the hole, from teh squalor, anything beats the lack of dollars. But I don't just fight for me.
I went to the potters house, YES, with the Bishop, to watch his school's Christmas play, my nephew goes there. And there was this young lady on the back row of the mass choir and she had spirit and she had spunk and baby, she was singing those Christmas song. Those are the folk I have to fight for b/c she got heart, and the fiscal burden that this bill in addition to the omnibus bill, the defense bill, the recovery act, all of these boards and czars will do will break that child's spirit and those like her. I'm older and that spirit and spunk, baby, it makes thangs stick together in your life. that spirit, that spunk, it makes you get up when you don't feel like it.
My sister has a lot of students, and some ain't legal. And I hear them, saying I ain't going to be nothing. can't work at a real job, can't go to college, all I can do is go to the army. Those the folk I fight for. B/c we gotta find a way to bridge these children into citizenship. It benefits no one in this country for generation after generation to be here and not be legal outside of these human smugglers, and the criminal organizations that support them.
Chris Frates and Carrie Budoff Brown tells us about the deal.
the link for the actual bill is right up under their article in politico.
The title for today is selected due to the words that Mr. Obama had the nerve to let up out of his mouth and call a weekly response.
the politico staff reports about it, they didn't give a single author credit.
What's beef? Beef is urban slang for a confrontation between two supposed enemies....
Mr. Obama tells us that some of his changes were included in the Republican's patients bill of rights, that's true Mr. Obama, BUT YOU AND I BOTH KNOW DAMN WELL THERE WAS NO INDIVIDUAL MANDATE TELLING GROWN ASS INDIVIDUALS WHAT THE HELL TO DO WITH THEIR BODIES, B/C THEY WEREN'T ALLOWED TO NOT TURN IN DOCUMENTATION TO GET A JOB THAT PROBABLY ARE NOT QUALIFIED FOR, CASE IN POINT: YOURSELF.
WHATEVER OUR POSITION IS, MR. OBAMA, THE HOUSE REPRESENATIVES AND SENATORS HAVE TO ANSWER TO THE AMERICAN VOTERS, THE AMERICAN CITIZENS AND JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DEAL THAT IS LEGAL YOU DON'T PUT YOUR NAME ON S*** UNTIL YOU READ IT FULLY.
AIN'T NOBODY WORRIED ABOUT YOU RUNNING YOUR ASS TO MAUI. AIN'T NOBODY RUNNING AROUND WORRIED ABOUT YOU AND YOUR STAFF WORKING ON CHRISTMAS. BABY, THE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO TAX THROUGH THIS BILL ARE FACING THEIR LAST CHRISTMAS WITH A JOB,THE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO USE YOUR MEDICAL BOARD THAT YOU AND STILL DEMOCRATIC SENATOR JOE LIEBERMANN DREW UP ARE FACING THEIR LAST CHRISTMAS WITH THEIR LIFE..............
YOU CAN'T VOTE UP AND DOWN ON A BILL THAT DON'T FLY STRAIGHT.......
AND DON'T YOU EVER IN YOUR LIFE, HOWEVER SHORT OR LONG YOU WANT IT TO BE, MR. BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA, DON'T YOU EVER RUSH SOMETHING AS MOMENTOUS AND COUNTRY-CHANGING AS THIS HEALTH CARE BILL.
B/C AIN'T THE END OF THE DAY, YOU AIN'T GOTTA BE UP UNDER THIS INSURANCE.
AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU AIN'T GOTTA TELL YOUR WIFE SHE CAN'T HAVE A MAMMOGRAM B/C THE ADVISORY BOARD DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THAT WAS "NECESSARY"
AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU AIN'T GOTTA TELL YOUR KIDS, YOU CAN'T GO TO THE DOCTOR AS MUCH AS YOU FEEL IS NEEDED B/C THE DAMN GOVERNMENT DON'T WANT TO PAY.
SO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, MR. BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA, IS PRAY TO ALLAH, JESUS, TED KENNEDY, THE IRANIAN AYATOLLAH THAT YOU WRITE ALL THESE LONG ASS LOVE LETTERS TO OR WHOMEVER YOU PRAY TO, AND BE THANKFUL THAT IS A COUNTRY THAT STILL RESPECTS RULE AND REGULATIONS.
BE THANKFUL THAT WE AIN'T IN JAKARTA, WHERE CITIZENS LIKE ME COULD ENFORCED A REAL "REGIME CHANGE" THAT NIGHT IN GRANT PARK.
DON'T YOU EVER RUSH SOMETHING THIS SERIOUS, B/C YOU NEED IT. B/C YOU KNOW DAMN WELL, 1/4/2010 WHEN THE CHRISTMAS NUMBERS COME OUT AND THIS BILL IS READ DURING THE HOLIDAYS BEFORE A VOTE, YOU WON'T GET IT.
BE THANKFUL, MR. OBAMA, THAT FOLK LIKE ME RECOGNIZE THAT THE SYSTEM IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PUTTING IN YOUR PLACE, FOR NOW...........
DON'T YOU EVER TRY TO MAKE AMERICAN CITIZENS FEEL BAD THEY AIN'T BUYING YOUR BRAND OF BULLSH**! IT AIN'T THE INSURANCE COMPANIES THAT ARE FUSSING THAT MATTERS; IT IS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM THE LEFT AND RIGHT THAT HAVE TOLD YOU AND YOUR CRONIES THEY DON'T WANT THIS DAMN BILL IN THIS VERSION.
AND IF YOU ARE NAIVE ENOUGH TO THINK THAT IN 2010, JUST SAYING WE DID SOMETHING IS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU, PELOSI, REID AND THE REST OF YOUR CREW, THEN PICK UP THAT GUIDE TO AMERICAN CULTURE'S FOR DUMMIES THAT YOU KEEP BY YOUR BEDSIDE.
WE AIN'T DOING NOTHING, BUT ABIDING BY THE LAW SPEAKING OUR MIND AND DEMAND THAT OUR CONGRESS DOES THINGS THE OLD-FASHIONED AMERICAN WAY, THE RIGHT WAY, DONE ONCE SO WE WON'T HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN.
YOU THINK, YOU GOT PROBLEMS, YOU THINK YOU GOT CONFRONTATION.
THEN WHILE YOU HANGING WITH MARY J. BLIGE AS HER TO DECIPHER THIS FOR YOU:
MOS DEF'S WORDS FROM THE CHAPPELLE SHOW, YOU KNOW HIM AMERICA, FROM 16 BLOCKS, ALL OF THESE TYPE MOVIES.
LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF A SOMETHING CALLED WHAT'S BEEF AND SEE HOW MUCH IT RELATES TO YOU AND YOUR LIFE.
Beef is not what Jay said to Nas
Beef is when workin' niggas can't find jobs
So they tryna find niggas to rob
Tryna find bigger guns so they can finish the job
Beef is when the crack kids can't find moms
Cause they end up inna PINE box or locked behind bars
Beef ain't the Summer Jam for Hot 97
Beef is the cocaine and AIDS epidemic
Beef don't come with a radio edit
Beef is when the judge is callin' you "defendant"
Beef, it comes with a long jail sentence
Handed down to you in a few short minutes
Beef is when your girl come through for a visit
Talkin' bout "I'm pregnant by some other nigga"
Beef is high blood pressure and bad credit
Need a loan for your home and you're too broke to get it
And all your little kids is doin is gettin' bigger
You tryin not to raise 'em around these wild niggas
Beef is when a gold digger got ya seat and a
A manicured hand out like "pay me nigga"
Or I'm tellin' your wife
Or startin' up some foul rumor that'll ruin your life
Beef is when a gangster ain't doin it right
Another gangster then decided what to do with his life
Beef is not what these famous niggas do on the mic
Beef is what George Bush would do in a fight
Yeah, beef is not what Ja said to 50
Beef is more than Irv not bein here with me
When a soldier ends his life with his own gun
Beef is tryin' to figure out what to tell his son
Beef is oil prices and geopolitics
Beef is Iraq, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip
Some beef is big and some beef is small
But what y'all call beef is not beef at all
Beef is real life happenin' everyday
And it's realer than them songs that you get at Kay Slay
This has been a Black Star PSA
AND WHETHER YOU ARROGANT ENOUGH, NON-BLACK AMERICA, TO THINK THAT B/C IT IS THE N WORD INCLUDED THAT IT DON'T APPLY TO YOU. READ IT AGAIN, B/C
UNEMPLOYMENT, CRIME, DRUGS, AIDS/HIV, TRYING TO PUT YOUR KIDS IN SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS, HOES TALKING UNTIL THEY RECEIVE PAYMENTS, GEO-POLITICAL POLITICS, HAVING A PRESIDENT THAT WILL PUT IN WORK WHEN IT COMES TO OUR SECURITY VERSUS HAVING ONE THAT WRITES LOVE LETTERS TO ALL OF ENEMIES,
ALL OF THESE TOPICS............
ALL OF THEM..........
NO RACE HAS EXCLUSIVITY OF THEM, THEY APPLY IN SOME WAY TO ALL OF US.
WHETHER YOU WANT TO ADMIT TO ME OR NOT, AMERICA, WE ALL GOT BEEF AND NOT ON AISLE 10 IN THE GROCERY STORE (SUPPORT MINYARDS, TOM THUMB, MEIJERS AND EVERY OTHER GROCERY STORE THAT AIN'T WAL-MART, THEY NEED THE BUSINESS!).
AND MR. BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE BEEF ALL OF 2010, 2011, AND 2012 UNTIL YOU ARE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
THIS AIN'T NO DAMN CAMPAIGN PROMISES, NEGRO, THIS BILL CONCERNS PEOPLE LIFE.
YOU SUPPOSED TO THE ONE, ALL EDUCATED, ABLE TO RISE ABOVE PERSONAL FEELINGS, SO ADJUST YOUR BRIEFS B/C WE ALL KNOW YOU AIN'T NO BOXER DUDE AND LET THE PROCESS WORK, HOWEVER LONG IT TAKE.
IT AIN'T NOBODY FAULT BUT YOUR OWN FOR RUNNING TO A COUNTRY WE OWE TRILLIONS TO AND THINKING YOU ARE GOING TO GET SOME CLIMATE CONTROL DEAL THAT WILL CUT THEIR MONEY, BUT YOU AIN'T GOT NONE TO GIVE TO CHINA.
THIS AIN'T NO ELECTION, SO TELL PELOSI IN HER CAMPAIGN MODE AND THE REST OF YOUR CREW, AXELROVE, RAHM, VALERIE JARRETT, SUSAN RICE, JOE BIDEN, AND MICHELLE.
THAT YOU GOT BEEF, NOW!
YOU GOT BEEF NOT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT WITH THE PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF THAT GOD LET GO THROUGH UNTOUCHED MANY A NIGHTMARE TO BE HERE SAFE AND SOUND TO FIGHT FOR THOSE WHO SIMPLY TRYING TO MAKE IT AND WON'T SURVIVE UNDER THIS BILL AND OTHERS LIKE IT.
TELL THEM THAT YOU GOT BEEF WITH FOLK THAT DON'T MIND PUTTING IN WORK SO THESE BABIES LIKE I SAW AT THE POTTER'S HOUSE CAN SING WITH JOY AND PROMISE OF BEING ABLE TO BE SOMETHING AND SOMEBODY IN THIS COUNTRY WHEN THEY GROW UP WITHOUT THE BURDEN OF YESTERDAY'S BILL.
YOU GOT FOES, NEGRO, WELL NOW YOU GOT BEEF WITH THOSE WHOSE BATTLES SCARS LITTER THEIR BODIES.
IN 2010, YOU WILL FIND OUT EACH AND EVERY DAY, MR. BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA. THINK ABOUT THAT AS YOU SURF AND TURF DURING YOUR CHRISTMAS VACATION.
WE AIN'T GOING TO STOP, WE AIN'T GOING TO RELENT, WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR OUR AMERICAN CITIZENS, WE ARE GOING TO FIND A WAY TO LEGALIZE ALL OF THESE ILLEGAL CHILDREN YOU AND YOUR HOMIE ACORN KEEP FINDING A WAY TO SMUGGLE OVER HERE.
WE ARE GOING TO END OUR BEEF, WITH YOUR SOCIALISM, WITH YOUR MANDATES.
ONE DOLLAR, ONE VOTE AT A TIME.
MARY J.(one of my all-time favorite artists), Michelle, somebody better tell your boy what beef is.
B/c in 2010, AMERICA IS GOING TO WIN. IN 2010, AMERICA IS GOING TO RECTIFY ALL OF OUR BEEFS WITH ENEMIES DOMESTIC AND ABROAD.
WHAT'S BEEF? TRUST IT AIN'T THE PUNK BATTLES YOU THINK ARE BAD ON K STREET.
IT'S THE FISCAL, POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL CARNAGE YOU ARE TRYING TO IINFLICT ON MAIN STREET.
IT AIN'T IN THE POLL NUMBERS YOU KEEP BY YOUR BEDSIDE,
IT IS THE REMOVAL OF LIFE LIKE YOU ARE GANGSTA ON A WHOO RIDE9(SLANG FOR DRIVE-BYES).
IT AIN'T THE FACT THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO REFORM HEALTH CARE,
IT IS THE FACT THAT YOU ARE KILLING AMERICAN CITIZENS WITH A MEDICAL BOARD AND THINK ALL YOU ARE GOING TO GET BACK IS MEAN STARES........
GOTTA GO, Mr. Demarcus Ware and every other injured player trying to help his team and job, YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS BROTHERS. JUST LIKE ALL OF MY AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT GOTTA WORK IN THE COLD AND AIN'T GOT NO FREE MAUI HANGOUT!
YOU GOT SOME FOES, NEGRO PLEASE, YOU GOT BEEF NOW! MEDIDATE ON THAT FOR SUNDAY MORNING, B/C 2010 IS LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY.
