Yeah..It Made Me Tear Up

I was at work last night watching Obama’s rally on CNN when it hit me: I’m alive. I’m conscious. I’m breathing. Barring any fluke accidents *be it at the polls or in my life* between now and Wednesday morning…I’ll be alive to see the “first” minority president of the United States of America.  Just think, the history books will read that Barrack Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States of America. As an 80s baby, a hip hop head, a semi activist, a sometimes blogger, and a black man that happens to be a citizen of the United States…I can honestly say that this moment in history is powerful. Win or lose, Senator Obama…just know that you’ve inspired millions of people from the United States. You’ve let them know that there actually IS someone in DC that’s willing to fight for them and make this country a better place. You’ve inspired millions of college kids to get up off their asses and be pro-active about their futures. And the future of this country.

Win or lose on Election Day, I think you won.

It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you…

Sorry we’ve been away so long folks. Even esteemed psuedo journalists such as ourselves have personal lives that need to be attended to.

Anyway, here’s a quick run down of some recent happenings:

1. McCain chastises racist/ignorant supporters that STILL seem to think that Senator Obama is a Muslim, a terrorist, or a Muslim terrorist.

2. The presidential debates are over and John McCain has somehow shown the WORLD that he’s a fool…yet people will still vote for him.

3. Federal government bails out the stock market. That $700 billion dollar package is going to help in the short run but screw us in the long run. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t I guess.

4. Colin Powell endorses Barrack Obama. Powell also laid out his reasons WHY he endorsed Obama so there would be no confusing it with “helpin a brotha out.”

5. And on some totally insane shit…Stephen Baldwin, yes the Baldwin brother that has given us such cinematic gems as Sex Monster/Biodome/Snakeman, has challenged Barrack Obama to a boxing match. On top of that, Mr. Baldwin called Barry a “cultural terrorist.” You be the judge.
