Yes, I grew up in the eighties and ninties, I am not afraid to say I listened to New Kids on the Block. Yes, I took it step by step! Just playing, just playing,
but that is where we start today.
I chose that song and another song from the movie love and basketball. It is a story of the coming of age of two upper-class black children in los angeles, california. Now I know, I know, ANYONE WHO MAKES OVER 250,000 is automatically transformed into white, klan-wearing devils, but just work with me.
The story revolves around Omar Epps character being the son of a famous basketball player and his struggle to fulfill his supposed destiny like his father. S. Lathan's character focuses on her quest to be the first female player in the NBA. The dialouge between S. Lathan's character and her mother played by Alfre Woodard is classic........ I could write a good 15 pages on the enormity of the conversation between those two, but I digress. The mother tells the daughter to fight, fight for the love of Mr. Epps's character, but she is overwhelemed b/c love ain't like basketball where the rules and regulations of what is and is not fair are clearly stated. Don't work that way.
So the two characters play a game of basketball to determine if Mr. Epps's character will let Ms. Lathan's character back in her hurt. At this point, they are not children, they are grown, he going through a major knee injury, she going through a major "I got love on my mind, the natalie back in the day cole version" injury. She starts out winning, but she has challenged him not only physically, mentally, emotionally, she has charged up his pride. And despite his injury he is victorious.
During this scene is a song by a wonderful artist who I really believe was so before her time, Me'Shell Ndegeocello , called a fool of me. And as the game progesses, you keep hearing the lyrics that you made a fool of me, tell me why?
Which is where we start today...............
Step by step is how I approach my problems, that don't mean I follow them all the time. But it took age, a lot of experience, and a lot of fucking up frankly to understand that some things, most things, go in steps. you can't get to step 15 without step 1, step 2 and so on.
We are enduring an administration that believes in global warming which is cool, I think we all know plastic and some of our other unnecessary shit put us on the bad side of mother nature. However, we are enduring an administration that is bent on THE WORLD BEING ALIKE, LIVING ALIKE, WORKING ALIKE, GETTING PAID ALIKE..........workers of the world unite, all that kind of stuff.
And step by step, from the creation of over 40 czar positions that do not have ANY CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT INCLUDING THE HEALTH CZAR WHO WAS DIRECTLY QUOTED SAYING THAT RATIONING HEALTH CARE IS NO DOUBT GOING TO HAPPEN, WHAT IS IN QUESTION IS WHETHER THE ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO BE HONEST ABOUT IT.
Step by Step, like as Dan Berman reports in politico(I told you I was going to get back to giving out credit in articles), like lying about how many barrels of oil really did end up in the Gulf of Mexico, and how Barack was declaring proclamations and going on vacations while ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECOLOGICAL TERRORISM AT THE HANDS OF ONE OF HIS BIGGEST DONORS OCCURED. The fight in the gulf is far from over, damn whether they show it on tv.
Step by Step, as Rep. D. Issa writes in an op-ed in Politico, has this administration made a mockery of those it promised transparency and accountability. From making his first official that to seal his records and those of his "Citizenship" challenged relatives, to making deals with Andy stern in a bowling alley/lobbying room, to writing secret letters to ayotollah. Step by step, this administration does more behind closed doors, locked doors than your average drug dealer.
Step by Step, the GOP is correctly GETTING DOWN TO THE BASIC ISSUES. FOOD STAMPS AIN'T A BLACK OR MINORITY THING, IT IS A I DON'T HAVE ANY MOTHERFUCKING MONEY AND HAD TO SIT UP IN THIS DHS OFFICE AND FILL OUT A THOUSAND FORMS TO GET THIS SHIT, WHEN I WOULD REALLY JUST PREFER A JOB AND A NICE LUNCH FROM CHILLI'S.
STEP BY STEP, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE BREAKING THE GAME DOWN, LIKE HOW THE PHILLIES DID LAST NIGHT! A NO-HITTER IN POST-SEASON THAT'S CRAZY!. STEP BY STEP LIKE HOW THE RANGERS HAVE TO DO WHEN THEY PLAY TAMPA BAY AGAIN, B/C THEY KNOW TAMPA COMING WITH HEAT. AND THOSE STEPS START BY STRETCHING, DOING YOUR RESEARCH, TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF.
IF THOSE STEPS ARE NOT COMPLETED, THEN THE GOAL CANNOT BE ACCOMPLISHED.
AND STEP BY STEP, IT IS BECOMING CLEAR THAT A MANDATE REGARDING OBAMA, REGARDING DEMOCRATS, REGARDING THE SLEAZY AND SLOPPY STATE OF OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM IS COMING.
MY POINT IS OBAMA NATION, YOU CAN HAVE MICHELLE RUN AROUND ALL YOU WANT TO. YOU MADE A FOOL OF AMERICA, BARACK OBAMA. YOU MADE A FOOL OF EVERY LITTLE MALE BLACK CHILD THAT ACTUALLY THOUGHT YOU WAS DOING SOMETHING FOR THEIR BENEFIT WHICH MAKES ME WANT TO BEAT THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF YOU, QUITE FRANKLY.
YOU MADE A FOOL OF THOSE WHO WERE LYNCHED, THOSE WHO DID MARCH, THOSE WHO ARE JUST PLAIN OLE' DECENT CITIZENS, YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF MILITARY BY APOLOGIZING TO FUCKING PAKISTAN WHEN WE FEED THEIR MOTHERFUCKING ASSES SO OUR TROOPS, OUR KILLAHS COULD GET SUPPLIES, WHEN WE COULD HAVE JUST CUT OFF THAT 5 BILLION DOLLARS HILLARY JUST PROMISED.
YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN THE SYSTEM, HILLARY YOU ARE A RENIGGER................
LET ME REPEAT THAT AGAIN, HILLARY YOU ARE A RENIGGER................B/C IF YOU HAD THE BALLS LIKE THAT YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER LET THIS FOREIGN BORN FABIAN SOCIALIST BEAT YOUR HOMEGROWN PROGRESSIVE BULLSHIT. YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF NATION, HILLARY.
BARACK, THE FIRST THING YOU DID WAS CUT EVERYTHING FROM DC VOUCHERS TO FOOD STAMPS AND MEDICARE TO THOSE MOST DESPERATE IN NEED. YOU CUT JOBS WHEN MOTHERFUCKERS NEED TO WORK NOT JUST TO PAY BILLS, BUT TO KEEP THEIR PAROLE/PROBATION OFFICERS OUT OF THEIR ASS, SO THEY CAN STAY OUT AND RAISE THEIR FAMILIES.
YOU CUT OUT AMERICAN CITIZENS AND FLOODED THE GATES WITH "GOOD" ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. WHICH IS A MISNOMER. CAN NEVER BE, HOW CAN YOU BE GOOD BREAKING THE LAW............B/C JUDGE ROBERT FRANCIS TOLD ME I CAN'T SELECTIVELY CHOOSE WHICH LAWS ARE WORTH PUNISHMENT OR NOT, WHY IS THE SAME NOT FOR ALL OF THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.
YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF HISPANIC VOTERS BY THINKING THEY ARE JUST ONE BIG ASS RACIAL BURRITO AND THEY ALL THINK ALIKE AND ALL OF THEM WANT THEIR ILLEGAL ASS RELATIVES TO GET A FREE PASS WHILE THEY HAD TO GO THROUGH HELL AND HIGH WATER TO GET IT........
YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF GAY PEOPLE BY PROMISING THEM GAY MARRIAGE AND YOU CAN'T EVEN GET RID OF DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL..............
YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY BY APOLOGIZING TO EVERY COUNTRY KNOWN TO MAN, BUT CAN'T APOLOGIZE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY SITTING YOUR HAPPY ASS AT HOME WITH THE DEBT YOU RUNNING UP.
YOU MADE A FOOL OUT OF THE CONCEPT OF SOVEREIGNTY BY ALLOWING ELEVEN FOREIGN ASS COUNTRIES SUE ARIZONA FOR SOME SHIT THAT FRANKLY DON'T CONCERN THEM, COUNTRIES THAT ARE KNOWN FOR PROGRESSIVE/MARXIST/FABIAN SOCIALIST TIES, COUNTRIES THAT ARE KNOWN TO SMUGGLE METH,COKE, AND HERION. COUNTRIES THAT ARE KNOWN TO SMUGGLE CHILD SEX SLAVES AS THAT IS THE BIGGEST COMMODITY ON THE HUMAN MAKET.......
COUNTRIES THAT WOULD LOCK MY BLACK ASS UP THE MOMENT, I SET FOOT ON THEIR SOILS ILLEGALY.
YOU MADE A FOOL OF THEM, BARACK.
I KNOW, I KNOW, THE PAIN THEY ARE FEELING B/C THERE ARE THOSE WHO EVEN UP UNTIL THE WEE HOURS OF LAST NIGHT ARE STILL TRYING TO FIND WAYS TO MAKE A FOOL OUT OF ME.
THE DIFFERENCE IS I KNOW WHY, PERSONALLY, THAT BULLSHIT IS GOING ON. KIND OF HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH WHY OUR OWN DALLAS COUNTY DA, MY GODBROTHER, CRAIG WATKINS WAS ON CNN LAST NIGHT, SAVING A COUPLE OF CONVICTS................. KINDA HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT IF MR. WATKINS LOSES HIS JOB AND DANNY CLANCY COMES IN, SOME FILES ARE GOING TO REOPENED AND SOME FOLK ARE GOING TO GET CHARGED.
I KNOW WHY, THE BULLSHIT IS COMING AT ME, FROM MY FAMILY, ______ FAMILY, ALL THEY FAMILY AND FRIENDS, ALL MY FAMILY IS FRIENDS.
BUT WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,
CNN, MSNBC, EBONY, JET AND EVERY OTHER DAMN NEAR RETARDED MOTHERFUCKER THAT DECLARED LIKE STEVE HARVEY, I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR THIS FOOL B/C HE'S BLACK, OR I AM TIRED OF BUSH EVEN THOUGH HE IS NOT ON THE BALLOT, OR AMERICA IS BAD BUT IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY I WOULD BE THE SLAVE THAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE,
JANET N.( JUST B/C YOU WERE THE GOVERNOR OF ARIZONA, DON'T PRECLUDE YOU FROM DEPORTING MEG WHITMAN'S NANNY, SHE ILLEGAL RIGHT......),
ALL OF YOU SHADY, DIRTY, LOWDOWN AS MY MOM WOULD SAY LOW DOWN DIRTY MOTHERFUCKERS................
ALL OF YOU ALL MADE A FOOL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
MADE A FOOL OF THE RIGHTS, AND CUSTOMS AND LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY,
ALL OF YOU ALL LET PERSONAL SHIT HAPPEN TO PEOPLE LIKE ME B/C FOLK LIKE ME DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU ENOUGH TO NOT TELL THE TRUTH.
I AM GOING TO BE ALLRIGHT B/C STEP BY STEP, FAITH/LORD/JESUS/ALLAH WHATEVER YOU NEED TO TELL YOURSELF IS ALLRIGHT WITH ME. I DON'T DO MORE THAN I CAN DO. I DON'T FALL FOR THE BULLSHIT DRAMA AND SHIT NO MORE. I DON'T AND WILL NOT FUCK WITH NOBODY THAT I SAID I WOULDN'T. NOT FOR A CAN OF FOOD, NOT FOR A FUCKING DOLLAR.
BUT AMERICA ARE YOU GOING TO BE ALLRIGHT,
WITH A MAN, A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT MADE A FOOL OF YOU,
BUT CAN'T TELL YOU WHY.................
CAN LOOK YOU DEAD IN THE CAMERA AND SAY AMERICA NEEDS TO BE TAKEN DOWN A PEG OR TO, BUT CAN'T TELL YOU WHY HE IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN STEP BY STEP TO LEGALIZE SOME ILLEGAL MOTHERFUCKERS BECAUSE THEY AIN'T LIKE THEY COUSIN SMILEY AND BREAKING MORE THAN ONE AMERICAN LAW.............
HE MADE A FOOL OF YOU, HE MADE A FOOL OF YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY, OUR GOVERNMENT, OUR DESIRES FOR OUR VOICE TO BE HEARD AND RESPECTED AS THE ULTIMATE SAY SO IN OUR SYSTEM,
HE MADE A FOOL OF OUR RACIAL LEGACY BY DEMEANING IT TO A MERE SLOGAN JUST TO GET ELECTED. HE MADE A FOOL OUR DEDICATION TO THE GENERATIONS AFTER US BY LOADING WITH DEBT, AND THE CONGRESS DID TOO.
B/C YOU ALL TOLD THEM,
YOU TOLD THEM, YOU DIDN'T WANT OBAMA CARE, THE RIGHT AND THE LEFT DID, YOU TOLD THEM YOU DIDN'T WANT STIMULUS, YOU DIDN'T WANT CZARS NOT BEING CLEARED BY THE PEOPLE YOU ELECTED TO CHECK THEM OUT.
YOU TOLD THEM........, AMERICA.
PLEASE WATCH THAT MOVIE AND LISTEN TO THE TONE OF THAT SONG. SHE IS BEYOND THE HURT OF BEING MADE A FOOL OF, SHE SIMPLY WANTS TO KNOW WHY........
I KNOW WHY...............
BECK KNOWS WHY...........
SOROS, OBAMA AND OTHERS KNOW WHY............................
BUT THEY MADE A FOOL OF YOU, AND YOU DESERVE TO KNOW WHY.
AND THE REFUSAL TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, THE REFUSAL TO APOLOGIZE , THE REFUSAL TO STAND UP TO OTHER COUNTRIES ON THE BEHALF OF STATES, IS AN ANSWER IN ITS SELF.
THESE PEOPLE DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU.
ALL THESE ILLEGAL "GOOD" PEOPLE ARE BETTER THAN THESE LEGAL "BAD" AMERICANS...............
THEY TELLING YOU IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE, THEY DON'T WANT YOU WORKING, EATING, SHITTING OR SLEEPING WITHOUT THEIR WRITTEN AND EXPRESSED PERMISSION B/C IN THEIR WORLD YOU GOTTA HAVE A PURPOSE THAT IS KNOWN TO THEM.
THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO TELL YOU WHY UNTIL THIS WORLD IS A GLOBAL, EQUIALIZED PLANTATION FOR SOROS AND ABOUT TEN OTHER MOTHERFUCKERS.........
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHY THEY PASSED BILL AFTER BILL PUTTING ALL OF US CLOSER TO FOOD STAMPS THAN PAYCHECKS........
THEY THINK YOU ALL ARE TOO WEAK, TOO PUSSIFIED, TOO MUCH OF LAZY, SPOILED, AMERICANS TO DO ANYTHING.
STEP BY STEP, JUST LIKE THE BATTING ORDER OF THE RANGERS, STEP BY STEP JUST LIKE HOW THAT PITCHER, ONE PITCH AT A TIME THREW A PERFECT GAME WITH THE HELP OF HIS TEAMMATES, THEY HAVE BEEN MAKING A FOOL OF YOU.
that's all folks, i could go on about some other but I write enough during the week, to catch what I missed today.
