All Roads Led to Chicago (Chapter 1)

Hello America,

I am so sorry that it has been a minute.  Moving costs money, last thing I gotta get is a computer, but I'm out of money and it's supposed to snow like 7 inches today......

And I'm working.....

But I'm here, fighting, reading, getting ready for April 15th.......

So let's get started, I'm going to give you three stories about my time in Chi and why nothing matters but that the fact that my citizens love me.....

1) I went to Midway to rent a car..... because I am riding the bus and "L", been on train but the brown line , but I just moved and I needed supplies.....

Went to the counter and told that I was on the do not rent list because I rented cars in LA.....

God sat besides me, as I laughed, prayed and proceeded to go to a couple of more counters, and when I found the most expensive counter, mysteriously...... the do not rent flag was there, and it took from my little money for my computer....  I got done what I needed to get done.

2) I went to 79th and Ciscero to the WalMart.....

I'm from Texas, Walmart is just what it is.  I prefer Target, but when I need to get bulk supplies cheap, it's Walmart.  I made a several hundred purchase of several items, which ain't hard at Walmart.  The loss prevention folks followed me all around the store.....

I could have gotten mad, but why? Folks still.... This was a primarily Latino area... while it is was some black people and other nationalities in there, the Latinos rule.....

So when I hit the counter, made sure that everything was paid for.....  I went to refill my water bottles b/c hell I was tired.....

Two baskets pushed all around the Walmart, another loss prevention person comes up on me.  Then an Oak Park police officer comes....  Now I'm irritated because I've paid for my purchase, regardless of the size of the purchase, the receipt said amount due is zero.....

While I won't go into all the details, as I am going to file a suit against Walmart, consequently, I was humiliated by Oak Park police and Walmart personnel to the point that I was afraid to leave the store until the last police officer checked my receipt......

3) My brother in law and I not getting along, which happens with in laws at times.  He believes, he just married my sister..... After 8 years of marriage, I am tired of his naive attitude.  He reveals some pretty song feelings about me to family members and it hurts.  Not because of what he said, but because he didn't say it to my face.  For folks that know a little more of what I have been through, it is hard not to think I'm bitter because of what God has taken away from me........

It's a challenge for most folks to fathom that when I focus on what God has blessed me with..., I can't really focus on anything else.

So as I read the papers about the Homeland Security Director saying that amnesty for illegals is the number one priority...... as Obama folds up his Rev. Ike tent, because the world didn't fall flat because of a sequester...

As I look at Rubio become the brown Obama I knew he was, not serving his state, but his political ambitions, as I look at Boehner stay strong just to bail out Obama at the last minute behind the premise of national security......

I see the Mavericks getting they asses whopped like John Elder Mims had the belt and the Heat on this 15 game streak.... and I'm watching Noah and the Bulls come up a little short against the Pacers.... two of the teams that will ensure Miami is an aberration in addition to the Celtics.....


God asks me "You ready to go home? Because I understand if you want to......"

I pour of snifter of tequila......

I think about this drama that Chicago is determined to bring to get me out.......

I think about the hurt I'm going to feel when the press comes and what my brother in law is saying will be magnified by 1000 degrees....

I think about the political machine I'm going to face and although I will win, it will hurt.....

I think about the Mavs, have the slimmest of chances, and how I need the Bulls and Blackhawks and pacers to keep up along my Celtics and how I can't control any of it.....

I take a meaningful sip and I look God in the eye.... and simply say

[Hook: Future & Drake]
I ain't going to back away from your call
Lebron can dunk , but want a different ball
l got that bonafide Texas gall

I won't fold because I got y'all

Yeah, cuz my people love me
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
I know the drama only going to get greater
Long as my people love me
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, so I ain't not pulling this here trigga
Long as my people love me

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
Ain't no need for municipal masturbating
Putting your blocks on fire
I'm here for an exorcism, to spank Satan so damn
This just a part of the path for inaugural parties
Walking with a limp like Sir Rick
Ain't no need to fight it, my God gets shady
So by default I'm here to win
Because his grace is my favorite shed
to fight this here Chicago winds
So not about the money
Its about control and power in the end
We coming up to capitol hill to dead some body
So get ready to see this some body"
So Chicago, it ain't about what you want, and damn what you won't
It's about this step in God plan to make Rahm and them moan
No disrespect to your Windy City Schwag
I'm James Brown screaming loud
I ain't going to bar none
Till the Hill feel that pound"

What I am saying is that I'm not backing down......

I don't really care about what Chicago, the Hill nor the press is going to me.....

Because after 38 years of God whopping my ass.....

I know where real power lies..... ain't in Chicago, nor DC......

As long as my people love me, they'll have to drag me off the court, and chase my spirit before I'll stop.

I'll be back tomorrow.....
