Did you see last night?!? Taking care of business, play by play, pitch by pitch, leaving NOTHING TO CHANCE.
I listened to the Rangers manager Ron Washington last night and he said preparation for today's game, "it's just another game, we are here to win, we not here to close out a series, we are simply here to win a game."
I like that, it tells me that Mr. Washington will not let his team get caught up in kool-aid that ain't theirs yet. It tells me that he has enough respect for the Yankees to understand that more than the series is on the line, PRIDE IS............ This is the Yankees, this is the Bronx Zoo, while it may not be the end of an era, it is the start of that end. The little bitty Rangers have grown up in a team, a powerful of brothers who are dedicated to one thing: doing all that is required to win the world series, game by game, inning by inning, pitch by pitch and bat by bat. AND THAT IS SO MUCH EASIER SAID THAN DONE.
I checked my twitter account yesterday, which I never do, it is still attached to an email that I don't check as often, I can't get the webmaster to release that twitter account to my main email. So I try, but I am not that good at checking it. I looked at some of the names that are starting to follow Fred Barnes, Karl Rove and others. I felt proud. Because it means all of this free shit is coming to an end.........just playing.
But seriously, it means that I am making a difference out there. It means I am making a dent. I talked about on facebook, how I was going to DC, am I moving to DC literally, no......... These days you can commute. One of the first jobs I ever had was for ARCO Oil and Gas, I worked on an offshore oil rig. SO WHEN I TALK ABOUT SOME THINGS YOU WOULD BE SUPRISED WHERE I AM GETTING THAT KNOWLEDGE FROM........ Anyway, I flew to Houston to Corpus Cristi all the time. Flying to DC ain't shit. Is it expensive, hell yes..........Is it worth it to come every night, hell yes....... Delmar and I just have to adjust as many couples do. And no_______- and ____, I will not be in a situation where the fraud will continue. November 3,2010 is coming around the corner. It will end.
I have had so many opportunities, some I blew, no doubt, some were never really the opportunities they seemed to be, but each and every chance, I learned something. Over the past almost four years of this blog, I have grown, I have regressed, but one thing I have never lost since starting this blog is my ability to break things down in a manner where I can communicate issues to urban audiences regardless of socioeconomic status and I at a point where honor, respect, courage, conviction and character mean something to me. To say that I have changed totally would be a lie, I am still going to be me, for good or for bad. But I am starting, just starting to realize the enormous opportunities that lie before me in this field while I am realizing my responsibilities to my country, my community, my relationships, my people...........
Not going to fuck over y'all, I love y'all, even when I bitch there is love there. Some folk you can love right next to you, some with a restraining order. We all now how this goes. I say to this to my black family, friends, and associates who are understandbly hurt that I am emerging on the right, it is a testament to their acknolwedgement of my strengths, it is a reminder of the obligations that will always be felt being a Black American. But Black America, urban America, you all got to let people be themselves. Some of you all gotta accept that this shit is going to happen with or without you because more than black people are hurting with Obama's policies, AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE HURTING. And I can't ignore the needs of all my country men and women because they skin ain't black.
I got friends who are racist, who are not black, who say probably the same shit I do in private, but they got love for me, and I got love for them. Am I supposed to turn my back on them, when these are the folk that protected me from "my people.", "my family" "my friends?" I am not going to make black decisions, I make decisions in what I write what's best for America, all of it. And if you all need not ever speak to me again, baby that's life. It is serious business what is going on up there in DC. Can't make everybody happy, not even trying. Accept the fact that this is my time, this is our time as the Rangers, this is our time as the Tea Party and outside of the rangers, the shit we playing for, the stakes we playing for is momumental and it is no one's fault but yours, Obama Nation, that we were not taken seriously.
We were riducled for our faith, ostracized for being outside the system. Blackmailed, fucked over, set up for games, drama and even murder. But we still here. We waiting outside Yankee stadium for them to let us on the field to warm up.
This is grown folk shit, now.......All of the children have left the room.
I got people that are impacted by my words and my decisions. I have been writing since I was 3 years old. I am 35. As a child in school, you read about writers being broke until after they are dead, and you think what kind of moron would ever choose that job? But when writing is you, is you. Just like Molina last night, regardless of how you got there, if you are a champion, if you are a lion in your heart, it's there, it's you. There is a lion in all of us, on everyone on that roster, every citizen in this country.
The Tea Party/Palin/folk like myself, and the Rangers are at a crossroads. We are at a place that is going to impact lives, impact societies, impact economies ......................................
Adam Clymer talks about the certain gridlock that is to come in Washington with a GOP majority. and that's where all of these elements come into today. No song, just a couple of more paragraphs, and there is a game at 3:30 today, I kinda, sorta, want to check out. I am crying and I can't stop and I have to write before the headache starts. Just releasing some stress, let's go.
There is a feeling in the air from the Bronx Zoo to Camp Wisdom to Wilshire to K Street like damn, these motherfuckers (tea party, tiffani, palin, and other individuals like that to numerous to make, the Rangers) these motherfuckers have made it. They have survived this two years as an emerging party, endured all kind of personal shit including being set up to be a pre-made fall guy for a campaign that was never intending to win, id theft, years of losing records, years of never getting close all that.
Some how, some way, these folk and organizations have made it, not to where they want to go, but to the point if where they continue on their path, they will reach their destination.
You can see the folk and hate in some folk eyes........The tea party is real, THE TEA PARTY IS AS REAL AS THE FACT THAT CRACK,GANGS, AND RAP, THE INTERNET WILL ALWAYS BE PART OF OUR CULTURE. IT IS INGRAINED AS A PHILLY CHEESE STEAK. B/c the tea party represents the spirit of what this country was founded on, FUCK THIS SHIT, WE AIN'T GOTTA TAKE THIS SHIT, WE ALL NEED TO DO OUR OWN SHIT, WE GOTTA KEEP THIS GOVERNMENT SHIT LIMITED BEFORE IT GETS OUT OF HAND..........
straight up, that's all it is. Getting back to the basics, getting this country back in order. By some folk, none of you all gave a chance to. In the next couple of weeks, it provides some of us the opportune time to get on the desk, pull out our business and say "we won".
BUT THAT WOULD BE A LIE, B/C THE TEA PARTY, THE RANGERS, THE TIFFANI(in regard to getting this id shit straight) ONLY REPRESENT THE REAL WINNERS:
YOU THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
THAT'S ALL IT'S ABOUT. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS, THERE IS MOUNTAINS IN THE DETAILS YES. JUST LIKE THE GAME FOR THE RANGERS IS TO HAVE MORE RUNS THAT THE OTHER. IT IS REAL SIMPLE. AND FOR THE MOST PART, WE GOT THAT DOWN.
THE CHALLENGE LIES IN WHAT RON WASHINGTON ALLUDED TO, NO NEED FOR ARROGANCE. NO NEED TO THINK WE ARE BIGGER THAN THE "GAME", ALL WE CAN DO IS PLAY THE GAME HOW THE GAME COMES TO US AND REMEMBER THE BASICS FROM CATCHING AND PITCHING TO REMEMBERING ALL OF THOSE FOLK WHO TOLD YOU WE DEPENDING ON YOU TO KEEP YOUR WORD IN WASHINGTON, DC.
The challenge lies in remaining true to the principles and values that got us here to give us the options we need to get us where we are trying to go. And if we hold on to God's hands(I use that term loosely to represent whatever postive spirit in your life), if we hold on to God's hands in our hearts, and realize that all we have to do is always remember that none of this is promised, THAT WE ARE ALL LIVING OUR DREAMS OUT.........BE IT PARTICIPATING IN YOUR COUNTRY'S FUTURE OR THROWING THAT GROUNDER TO SECOND TO STOP THAT INNING.
I END WITH THIS, WE ARE AT A POINT, TEA PARTY, THE RANGERS, THE TIFFANI'S WHERE WE CAN WIN. THE ONLY INJURY THAT CAN BE MORTAL IS FROM WITHIN. I FEEL SECURE IN SAYING THE TEA PARTY, THE RANGERS REPRESENT TEAMS THAT ARE BUILT ON SOLID FOUNDATIONS, SOLID AS A ROCK.
MY GAME, I AM ALREADY IN THE WORLD SERIES, I HAVE ALREADY WON MY PRIZE, IF I CAN REMAIN OUT OF JAIL TO CLAIM IT,(that would really help, just a little convict humor).
RANGERS, YOUR PRIZE IS NOT IN YANKEE STADIUM, BUT A MAJOR KEY TO IT RESIDES IN THERE, I HEARD THAT THEY ARE GOING TO LET YOU LOOK FOR IT AROUND THREE THIRTY. I KNOW IF YOU CONTINUE TO DO WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING AS A TEAM. YOU WILL GET THAT KEY, AND THAT KEY AIN'T TO CLOSE THE SERIES. IT IS TO CONTINUE TO DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO WIN THE GAME. THE COMMISSIONER WILL INFORM YOU OF WHEN IT AIN'T NO MORE GAMES TO PLAY. UNTIL THEN, STAY FOCUSED. YOU ALL ARE ON YOUR GAME, AIN'T NOTHING TO SAY TO YOU, BUT THANK YOU FOR SOME DAMN GOOD BASEBALL..........
TEA PARTY, YOUR PRIZE IS NOT VICTORY ON ELECTION DAY. YOUR VICTORY LIES IN WAKING THIS SYSTEM ON BOTH SIDES UP. YOUR VICTORY LIES IN LETTING THE WORLD KNOW,
American citizens are on ours...............We regulating, we watching, we are cutting, we are getting into all of this waste and fraud. We ain't taking the disrespect from none of you no more.
YOUR VICTORY LIES TEA PARTY IN PEOPLE BEING ABLE TO LIVE THEIR LIVES THE WAY THEY SEE FIT.
AND WE AS A PARTY, YES TEA PARTY I AM THAT IGNORANT COUSIN THAT HAS GOTTEN A VIP PASS SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY.
WE AS A PARTY ON THE VERGE OF TAKING THE PUBLIC'S TRUST
ARE OBLIGATED, NEVER TO FUCK OVER OUR PRECIOUS CITIZENS NO MORE WITH BULLSHIT WE CAN'T DO, BULLSHIT WE KNOW IS FUCKED UP FOR OUR COUNTRY.
OUR VICTORY WILL NEVER BE COMPLETE LIKE HOPEFULLY THE RANGERS THIS WILL BE.
OUR VICTORY CAN ONLY BE MEASURED LATER IN TIME WHEN ALL OF US ARE JUST SOME OLD ASS NAMES THAT OUR GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN WILL NOT WANT TO READ ABOUT.............
IT CAN ONLY BE MEASURED IN THE ABILITY WE LEAVE OUR COUNTRY AND OUR CITIZENS TO LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES, TO DO THEIR OWN THING, TO WORSHIP THEIR OWN GODS, TO EARN WHAT THEY SEE FIT TO EARN, TO QUESTION WHAT THEY HEAR, TO READ AND LEARN ON THEIR OWN..........
This process is just now getting started, tea party and rangers now the hate and the love and adoration is coming even today.
Stay humbled and remember the victories that we desire for each and every citizen is an on-going process,
so Mr. Obama and Mr. Clymer and the personal haters realize that we understand what we are doing, who we are doing for and we will never forget.
B/C IT IS OUR BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS THAT HAVE FED YOU, MR. OBAMA AND YOUR ILLEGAL NATION.
IT IS OUR BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS ON THAT FIELD OF GRASS.
IT IS OUR TURN, IT IS OUR TIME and do not mean us or what we stand for by coming with nothing less than your best shot.
We gotcha, Coach America,
We ready to play ball......................
And we ain't playing to lose.
