Jacknife On Election 2008

September 10, 2008 at 12:25 am (My muthafuckin self, My personal opinion, Politics) (, , , , , )

Well, it’s election time again, and both the DNC and the RNC have concluded. The democrats have their pick, and so do the republicans. A lot of noise is being made about McCain’s second in command, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska whose only experience includes being a mayor for a few years. It’s obvious that the only reason she was picked was that she was a woman, and McCain was trying to sway female voters who were angry that Obama didn’t pick Hillary as his running mate. Of course this would be assuming that female voters were so dense that the only reason they voted for Hillary is because she is a woman. If I were a female, I would actually find this an insult to my intelligence, especially since she is anti-choice, which is an issue many women care about. If Hillary was the Democratic nominee and didn’t pick Barack as her running mate, then McCain would have surely picked someone black as his running mate. If McCain wanted to pick a woman as his running mate, then there are a lot more candidates who are more suitable for the position, for instance, Condeleza Rice.

WAAAAAAH!!! LEBRON LIKES THE YANKEES!!! WAAAAAH!!!

October 7, 2007 at 7:50 pm (My muthafuckin self, My personal opinion, Shits and giggles, sports)

lebron.jpgA lot of people would be quite proud of the fact that one of the NBA’s best players lives in their hometown. Some even brag and idolize them. Not so in Akron. Here, whenever one of us makes it big, we find whatever little reasons we can to tear them down. Such as with Lebron James. Earlier this past week, he committed the crime of wearing a Yankees cap during their game against the Cleveland Indians. yeah, he’s a Yankees fan. Therefore, all his skills on the court as well as all the good he has done for his community are no longer relevant, because he choose to wear a Yankees cap.

IT’S A FUCKING BASEBALL GAME! GET OVER YOURSELVES!!

The man is paid for his skills on the court, not his preference of baseball teams. How many fucking Steelers fans are in Northeast Ohio alone? Yet they catch way less heat for it. Get over yourselves. For all he’s done for the Cavs these past few years, I’d say he’s earned the right to cheer on any baseball team he wants.

Now if the man is seen cheering on the Knicks, then give me a ring.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! When exactly does personal accountability come into play anymore?

July 29, 2007 at 7:57 pm (Hip Hop, Music, My muthafuckin self, My personal opinion, Politics)

vick.jpgFor those of you who don’t know, NFL superstar Michael Vick is suspected of running a dog fighting operation in his house. I seen what happens to these poor animals, and is Vick is indeed guilty, then I hope he gets punished to the full extent of the law. Now however, right wing talking heads and news outlets with little else to report on have discovered, that hip hop is to blame for dog fighting. However, dog fighting is a tradition that goes back to the days of the Roman Empire, which if I remember correctly was several of centuries before hip hop was created. This is little more of a continuation of the trend of making hip-hop the scapegoat for everything that’s wrong with society. This is nothing new, ever since the attacks on NWA back in the early 90s. However, this trend seems to be re-energized more since the whole Don Imus scandal.

There is no secret that there is a large amount of offensive lyrics in hip hop, but it’s no different from the images of blood and gore seen on movies, tv, and video games. There are also plenty of violent material in other forms of music. Eric Clapton sung about shooting the sheriff, Johnny Cash sung about shooting a man just to watch him die on “folson country blues”, and doing cocaine and killing his wife on “cocaine blues. Woodie Guthrie sang about an outlaw killing a cop in the song “Pretty boy Floyd”. Lets not even mention some of the lyrics in Heavy Metal music, or all the pop and R&B songs bashing men. Yet, these things aren’t even mentioned at all when there are discussions about violent music. If a rapper preformed any of these songs, we would never hear the end of it. Where are all the protests against the offensive material in these forms of music?  Why don’t these forms of music take the blame for society’s ills?

There are times when I wish we could go back to the prohibition era, or even the mid 1940s, before there was gangsta rap. I’m sure beside the whole WW2 thing going on, things must have been so peaceful back then. Seriously though, rather than making arguements about social conditions, living standards, mental health, parental upbringing, or anything else that COULD play a role in the violence in our society, I’ll pose these simple questions. There are millions of people around the world who listen to gangsta rap and play violent video games. By that logic, shouldn’t there be millions more cop killers, gang bangers, mass murderers, and psychopaths than those we see on the nightly news? Also, what accounts for the Jeffery Dahmers, Zodiac Killers, David Koreshs, Tim McVeighs, BTKs, and other psychos who clearly don’t listen to rap music?

Ya’ll are the shit!

July 5, 2007 at 2:18 am (Hustlin Saga, information, My muthafuckin self)

When I started this blog a year ago, my old geocities site had only a bit more than 8500 views. Now keep in mind that this was all 5 and a half years it had been up. Now in less than a year of this site, I have nearly 8600 views at the time of this writing. It may not seem like much, but ya boy is definitely on the come up!

Enough of that, my Hustlin Saga demo is almost complete, and it will take you through most of the first chapter. I’ll have it up by this weekend, and you can download it. Keep in mind that it’s a rough draft, and many things will change in the final cut. BTW, there is graphic violence, profanity, and nudity, so 19 and up only.

Awwww, Poor Paris! Now shut the fuck up and do your time, you crying little bitch!

June 12, 2007 at 3:06 pm (My muthafuckin self, My personal opinion, Paris Hilton, Shits and giggles)

pariscrying.jpgFor those of you who don’t follow the news (including me, but seeing something like this puts a smile on my face and makes me pay attention), hotel heiress and dumb bitch extraordinaries Paris Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail for reckless driving. 3 days in, she was released to house arrest, but last Friday a judge ordered her back in jail. As seen here, she isn’t taking it very well.

I’d never thought I’d see the day when one of the ‘elite’ is forced to pay their dues. Sure, it’s not like Paris is a politician or CEO, but seeing things like this gives me hope for this world. As for her, she needs to stop being such a crying little bitch. She broke the law, plain and simple. For reckless driving too? She could have killed someone, so she should be thankful she got off with only 45 days. There are people doing 45 months and 45 years right now who are being more of a woman/man than she is. There are people behind bars who have accepted the fact that they are going to spend the rest of their life in jail who are taking this better than her. There are people who have been sentenced to death who aren’t bitching up the way she is.

Like the old saying goes, if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.

They Came For Me 2006

September 24, 2006 at 6:45 pm (My muthafuckin self, Politics)

Ganked and gaffles from pastor Martin Niemöller (1892-1984), his original poem explained why inaction during the Holocaust encourages people like Hitler and his Nazis. It’s been translated several times and adapted into songs. In several versions stanzas were left out and others were added (for instance, during the Red scare in the 50s, the verse about communism was removed) but here is the original poem, translated from German into English.

Original Poem
  When the Nazis came for the communist,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Why do I have this here? Becuase I made my own version. Just as the orignal spoke on how the silence of German intellectuals encouraged the Nazis, the silence of our youth and our intellectuals encourages the misdeeds of the current republican administration. You can read more about the original poem here. On a side note, a lot of American and English adaptations leave out communist and Social Democrats while adding in Catholics and Jews.  WOnder why that is?

Oh well, without further ado, They Came for Me 2006.

They came for the Arab/muslims er…oops, terrorists

iraqivictims.jpggitmo.jpg

I didn’t speak up becuase I was neither an Arab or a Muslim.

Next they came for the Immigrants.

immigrationrally-jh.jpg

I didn’ t speak up becuase I was born and raised in America.

Then they came for the gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals

gaylesbian.jpggaystraight.jpg

I didn’t speak up becuase I was straight.

Then they came for the Liberals.

antiwarprotests.jpg

I didn’t speak up becuase I didn’t know that participating in an anti-war rally and speaking out against Bush automatically makes you a liberal.
Then they came for the Intellectual Elitists.

intelllectuals-2005.jpg

I didn’t speak up becuase I don’t know what the hell that was supposed to mean.

Finally, they came for me.

By then, there was no one left to speak up for me.
