You will know

Hello America,

Trying to do several things this morning, clean up, get my farm together, figure out why ican't get my sorority life up those type of things......... :-)

There was a black sitcom starring urban comic,talk show host, etc.....D.L. Hughley.  During an episode I caught this morning after a disagreement, the wife replied "I got jealous because I realized that everyone else sees the Daryl(main character) that I saw a long time ago...."

It kind of caught me off guard because I look at Delmar.  We have known each other probably, almost twenty five years.  Even though there were times we were down our seperate paths, it like a longitudinal study gone wrong, b/c when you deal with somebody over that period of time as you yourself are changing, you just see that emergence.

I see not a leader, and not just a man, but a man who is becoming grounded in his own personal faith and principles and because of that the men who feel compelled to gravitate towards his leadership are on another level.  I look at Delmar and it humbles me at times that this man loves me.  That this man will be the person that I face at the alter next year, that this man will be the person who fathers my children.......  It's humbling.  I bitch a lot with him publically because I know all of our business it out there anyway, might as well clarify, but I also know in our own we bobby/whitney/ike/tina all that at least in our regard of where we stay, where we've been, what circles we into.

I used to do astrological charts, A LOT. Linda Goodman's Love Signs was my bible.  It is amazing the different terms but still same methodolgy and conceptual frameworks of her books and some prominent psychological theories in regard to personality and traits........Anyway, I did charts until I did Delmar's one day, I had to approxiatmate the time because I couldn't get a time of birth from in-law.

I never did another chart again....................

Never picked up another book about that again.............

There are some truths that are supposed to be revealed to man in time, let's just say I cheated a little...........

And here is where we start for today.

You will know is a song by black men united done for the Jason's Lyric soundtrack.  It is a group of many, many talented black males in music, from D'Angelo, Stokley from mint condition, Aaron Hall, Gerald Levert, Tony!Toni!Tone!, I mean screw the Miami Heat with Dade, Bosh and Wade.  This was the super colloboration of r and b.  This movie was a coming of age for a young man in Houston, Texas.  The plot is around the chance of a lifetime to move to Dallas and walk his path and not the path that his father could not complete for him and his brothers.

family in texas............................. hey, what can I say it is what it is. Leaders are produced down here, so the challenge lies for a lot of us of knowing who and what battles should one lead.......

This song represented to me a new day that I thought was headed down our path.  This song represented why I stay with Delmar on some levels.  I was so blessed, so blessed to grow up in a neighborhood where I saw black men going to work, having careers, and owning businesses.  Songs like this, the concept of what these men were coming from on this song gave me the ultimate faith in black American men in this country, gave me the ultimate faith in urban men in this country, gave me the ultimate faith in men in this country.

That if this system stopped rewarding single parenthood and started rewarding families who have a man present, and it's not that men are better than women.  We beyond that, this is real talk.  Those families that have a man present, espeically one that wants to be there, that feels his presence is needed and rewarded in a functional manner, baby, those children come out more equipped for a life of stability. 

I look at Delmar this morning and smirked to myself,  I thought about all of the hate and bullshit I have gone through with this man, because of this man, and about this man..........

I knew, a long time ago and I bet my life and my freedom that You will know.  Let's go through the lyrics, get a little discussion on and bounce.  I got to finish cleaning up. Take the time to listen to the song, pretty cool song actually, tevin campbell it would be nice for an album.........ep, something.


Mmm...hmm...hmm...mmm...hmm...
Yeah, yeah

When I was a young boy
I had visions of fame
They were wild and they were free
They were blessed with my name

And then I grew older
And I saw what’s to see
That the world is full of pain
And my dreams they left me

Translation and Application to today's post:  When I was young, I had visions of the destiny that was supposed to be mine, they had no limits no boundaries, but as I got older shit happened and those dreams that I thought were my destiny left me........

And then I got stronger
Inside of the pain
That’s when I picked up the pieces
And I regained my name

And I fought hard, y’all
To call by my place
And right now you could ask me
And it all seems in vain

But then I got stronger because I didn't run from the pain, I picked up all of those broken pieces and as a  man(not me, the song, people, the song) I regained my name because I regained the truth that makes me me.  And I fought hard for that battle, and right now it seems like it was all for naught.

[Your dreams ain’t easy] Your dreams ain’t easy
[You just stick by your plan] You just stick by your plan
[Go from boys to men] Go from boys to men
[You must act like a man] You gotta act like a man
[When it gets hard, y’all] When it gets hard, y’all
[You just grab what you know] Got what you know
[Stand up tall and don’t you fall] And my background sing

You will know [You will know], yeah...eah...
[You will know]
[You will know] You will know, you will know
[You will know]

But what I know I am asking of myself, of my destiny ain't easy, and nobody going to give me shit, the key is to stick by your plan, emerging from the childhood wishes to demands of a man, you gotta act like man and when times get hard, you gotta do you, you gotta go what what you know, stand up TALL, NO TIME FOR FALLING BACK.  YOU WILL KNOW......... YOU WILL KNOW.

And I know you’re cryin’
‘Cause it’s all in his vein
And the things you want you can’t have
It just all went away

But life ain’t over
Hoo...hoo...
Just grab the winds and make demands
And the vibe will take you far

And I know you down and crying because it's not up to you, it's all in his hands, his blood.  And the things you wanted you can't have, all that shit left, but life ain't over,  GRAB THE WINDS OF CHANGE OF DESTINY AND DEMAND YOUR PLACE, YOUR RIGHTS, YOUR LIBERTIES, AND THAT ENERGY, THAT FORCE THAT COMES FROM PERSONALLY INSTILLING THAT MANTRA IN YOUR LIFE WILL TAKE FURTHER THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED AND WHEN IT'S TIME TO GET OFF,

you will know, you will know.............

[Your dreams ain’t easy] Your dreams ain’t easy
[You just stick by your plan] Stick by your plan, boy
[Go from boys to men] Go from boys to men
[You must act like a man] I know it ain’t easy
[When it gets hard, y’all] it gets hard sometime
[You just grab what you know] Yes, it does
[Stand up tall and don’t you fall] Stand up tall, don’t you fall, and you will know, yeah

[You will know]
[You will know] Ah...ah...ah... (You will know)
[You will know] Hey, there’s no doubt about it
[You will know] Hey, you will know

[You will know] You will know
[You will know] Hey...ey...hey...
[You will know] You will know, yeah
[Oh, you will know] Hey...

[Your dreams ain’t easy] Your dreams ain’t easy
[You just stick by your plan] Stick by your plans
[Go from boys to men] Boys to men
[You must act like a man] You must act like a man
[When it gets hard, y’all] It ain’t hard, yeah
[You just grab what you know] Grab what you know
[Stand up tall and don’t you fall] Oh...oh...oh...

[Your dreams ain’t easy]
[You just stick by your plan] Hey...hey...yeah
[Go from boys to men] Boys to men
[You must act like a man] I know it ain’t easy
[When it gets hard, y’all]
[You just grab what you know] Yeah...
[Stand up tall and don’t you fall] Come on D and sing this song

[You will know] Yeah...
[You will know] You will know
[You will know]
[You will know] Hey...

[You will know]
[You will know]
[You will know]
[Oh, you will know]

I chose that song because as John Maggs tells us in politico, the unemployment check thing is about to explode and if you still can't feel the effects of how fucked up this economy is YOU WILL KNOW............

David Malpass in the Wall Street Journal breaks down how the 111st congress and the feds decision to print more money gives lawmakers an out from tax and spending cuts, and if you still can't feel the effects of how fucked up this economy is YOU WILL KNOW..............

Andy Barr reports on the hate surrounding the tea party in politico, AND IF YOU STILL CAN'T ACCEPT, ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FOLK LIKE ME, THE TEA PARTY ARE HERE TO STAY, then you will know, November 2nd, 2010, YOU WILL KNOW....................

People, fuck a poll.  Get a vote, get more votes than the other candidates, it's real simple.  Retain and empower this system by being real with your shit.  by not promising a radicalization of an entire civilization within an election cycle.

AMERICAN PEOPLE, YOU ARE SO SMART, THE EARLY RESULTS ARE TELLING US THAT THIS DISTRICT AIN'T DOING THIS OR THAT, PLEASE, SHOW THE PUNDITS THAT ALL OF THEM ARE WRONG.

That you are going to stand up in force, NOT FOR JUST THE HOUSE, NOR THE SENATE BUT FOR YOUR COUNTRY.  I DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT FRANK LUTZ focus groups say(I think that is the highlight of hannity's show sometimes for me) WHAT DO YOU THINK, WHAT YOU FEEL, WHAT YOU KNOW IS ALL THAT MATTERS AND THE ONLY WAY THIS SYSTEM CAN GET THIS MESSAGE IS TO VOTE.

SO WHAT OBAMA FUCKED UP? YOU ALL USED MLK AND ALL OF THESE CIVIL RIGHTS SHIT TO TALK ABOUT VOTING, WAS IT ALL JUST TO GET HIS ASS ELECTED?  IF THE PAST TWO YEARS HAS SHOWN US NOTHING ELSE, HIS CONTINUED DENIGRATION OF THE AMERICAN MALE WHICH CONSEQUENTLY AFFECTS THE AMERICAN WOMAN WHICH CONSEQUENTLY AFFECTS THE AMERICAN CHILD, HAS SHOWN YOU THAT if you don't vote because blacks don't vote unless Alisha Keys is rocking the vote with her ass, then no matter what you continue to add to the problem of people treating us like token with some watermelon and chicken attached to some grant money.........

the same for hispanics, asians, democrats, independents, all of you all.  YOU ALL RIDE ON THE TEA PARTY, THE GOP, BUT IF NOTHING ELSE BABY WE LOYAL TO THIS SOCIETY. WE ARE GOING TO VOTE REGARDLESS.  DON'T LET A RIGHT SO PRECIOUS BE REDUCED TO WHETHER THIS NUT SOME OF YOU ALL CALL PRESIDENT IS FUCKING UP MORE THAN USUAL OR NOT.

YOUR CITY COUNCIL, YOUR LOCAL ORDINANCES, YOUR SCHOOL BOARD NEEDS YOUR INPUT.  FUCK THAT FOOL.......................

YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU, WE GOT OUR MILITARY, OUR KILLAHS WHOSE VOTES WON'T EVEN COUNT AS THEY PUT THEIR ASS ON THE LINE LITERALLY FOR US........

There is a spirit, fuck a tsunami, there is a groundswell, a earthquake and it is coming harder than the

RANGERS LAST  NIGHT, I KNOW YOU ALL SAW THAT.

BABY, THAT WAS A GROUP OF MEN WITH A PLAN AND A PURPOSE IN HAND.  THE KEY MOMENT IS WHEN WASHINGTON LEFT IN FELIX, ARM AND ALL AND TOLD HIM FINISH THIS SHIT, WE KNOW YOU CAN, YOU KNOW YOU CAN, BUT IT'S TIME TO SHOW THE WORLD AND THE YANKEES YOU CAN AND WILL SHUT THIS INNING, THIS GAME DOWN......................

Give our men in this party, B/C SOME CHECKING THAT IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE DONE ON OBAMA, ON CHINA, ON IRAN a man is going to have to do.

GIVE BOEHNER, MCCONNELL THE POWER THEY NEED TO SAY OBAMA, THEY PEOPLE DON'T WANT THIS SHIT, YOU AIN'T THEY DAMN DADDY, AND YOU AIN'T GOING TO FUCK OVER THE CONSTITUTION OR THREATEN BUSINESSES OR PEOPLE TO GET IT.  IF THAT MEANS, I GOTTA WHOP YOUR ASS, SO BE IT.

YOU WILL KNOW WITHIN FIVE MINUTES OF SPEAKER BOEHNER AND MAJORITY LEADER MCCONNELL how much, how much your will has been disregarded because within those five minutes with that type of power, these two are going to stand up and gonna be men in a realm where boys and chilidsh little girls have been running loose with their parent's pursestrings.

The GOP and DNC, they know.....................

they know the power of your votes, so

support Rossi, McMahon, Johnson, O'Donnell and others fuck a poll,

You know you fed up with this shit, Obama knows you fed up with this shit,

but THE WORLD AS WE ARE THE LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD, NEED TO KNOW

THAT THE TIME FOR GAMES, BULLSHIT AND POSTURING HAS STOPPED.

TIME TO ACT LIKE A MAN, OWN UP TO YOUR SHIT, TIME FOR SOME OF US TO ACT LIKE GROWN WOMEN, AND OWN UP TO OUR SHIT.

As the song says, when it gets hard y'all, just grab what you know,

STAND UP TALL AND DON'T YOU FALL,

AND YOU WILL KNOW..........................

THE POWER TO INVOKE CHANGE, RESPECT, HONOR, AND CHARACTER INTO OUR SYSTEM AGAIN IS NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 2ND.

STAND UP, BABY GIRL IN DELAWARE, STAND UP, COOL DEMEANOR ROSSI, BABY, STAND UP FIORNA, DON'T YOU FALL.........., STAND UP TEA PARTY.

AND DON'T YOU FALL

YOU WILL KNOW AND NOVEMBER 3,2010 HELP US TO LET THE WORLD NOW.

THAT WE AS A NATION ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS,

WE ARE AMERICANS................

God bless (SO PROUD OF YOU, TEXAS RANGERS, SERIOUSLY, THANK YOU FOR BRINGING PRIDE, THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THE SPIRIT OF TEAM WORK, THANK YOU FOR THAT TEXAS SCHWAGG THAT DEMANDED YOU GOT NOT THREE, FOUR, FIVE, BUT SIX RUNS IN THE NINTH INNING..........THANK YOU!, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SEE WHAT A GROUP OF MEN CAN DO(not the time for the sexist thing today ladies, just felt like writing to the brothers today.......) WHEN THEY PUT THEIR MINDS, HEARTS, AND SPIRITS INTO SOMETHING.  THANK YOU FOR THE CHILDREN WHO SAW THAT YOU GET UP, YOU KEEP PLAYING......

that's all, people, there are some strong leaders who just needing you to give them a chance, in our communities, in our neighborhoods, in our senate and house.  and when I mean men, I grew up in a time where man and men was used to include everybody so you get what i'm saying
