VOTE HOWEVER U LIKE!!






Da lyrics r below...I got em' from youtube.

Lyrics:

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

(McCain supporters)
McCain's the best candidate
With Palin as his running mate
They'll fight for gun rights, pro life,
The conservative right
Our future is bright
Better economy in site
And all the world will feel our military might

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obama's new, he's younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
He'll bring a change, he's got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq's a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes - you know Obama Won't
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS - You know McCain won't!
Have enough experience - you know that they don't
STOP GLOBAL WARMING - you know that you won't

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA
Stick with McCain and you're going to have some drama
We need it
HE'LL BRING IT
He'll be it
YOU'LL SEE IT
We'll do it
GET TO IT
Let's move it
DO IT!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

I'm talking big pipe lines, and low gas prices
Below $2.00 that would be nice

But to do it right we gotta start today
Finding renewable ways that are here to stay

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA,
Stick wit McCain you gone have some drama
MORE WAR IN IRAQ
Iran he will attack
CAN'T BRING OUR TROOPS BACK
We gotta vote Barack!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Mike Tyson Sports Illustrated article from 1988



http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1067130/1/index.htm


Its 13 Pages long but its still the most interesting thing you're gonna see all day.

"What society gives me doesn't mean anything to me, because I know when I go it will be like I never existed. I don't want celebrity. It's disrespectful, coming up and asking me for autographs while I'm eating. What does a 70-year-old white person have in common with a 21-year-old black man? Nothing. Nobody is going to come up to me and say they love me now, when he has no reason to love me. Where was he when I needed someone to love me?


"I know that basically I'm not wanted here. Americans aren't civilized people. I love the freedom of speech and opportunity here...but sometimes, I'm embarrassed by America. We should be a great enough country to take care of the weak. If there wasn't poor, there couldn't be rich. If there wasn't sickness, there wouldn't be health. Suffering is the only way we don't take life for granted, it makes us realize how good we have it. I love retarded people, animals, kids—they're innocent. But people take affection for weakness. When people do that, I get very upset, I don't know what I might do."


"I'm not an athlete, don't call me an athlete. How can you compare me with Billie Jean King or Magic Johnson? They're athletes. Athletes have careers. Athletes have to prepare. At any moment, I'm ready. I never liked sports. Sports are only social events. I'm a warrior, a missionary. What I do is an obsession. If I wasn't in boxing, I'd be breaking laws, that's my nature."

Watch your attire on Election Day

I recieved this e-mail this morning about watching your attire at the polls on November 4th:

VERY IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ


Date: Tuesday, September 23, 2008, 11:58 AM


Subject: Urgent Poll Info


Please, please, please advise everyone you know that they absolutely can NOT go to the polls wearing any Obama (or whoever you are voting for) shirts, pins, hats, etc. It is AGAINST THE LAW and will be grounds to have the polling officials to turn you away. This is considered campaigning and no one can campaign within X amount of feet of the polls. They are banking on us being overly excited and not being aware of this long standing law that you can bet will be ENFORCED THIS YEAR!!!!!

They are banking that if you are turned away, you will not go home and change your clothes and return to the polls to vote. Please just don't wear ANY gear of any sorts to the polls! Please share this information with as many people as you can. If you are already aware of this, please don't take it as insulting your intelligence.

Have a great day and see you at the polls on November 4th.

After doing some research in my typical nerdy fashion lol, I found this article from the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Voters can wear campaign buttons to polls, Pa. says

HARRISBURG - Voters who show up at the polls wearing campaign buttons or T-shirts should be allowed to cast ballots, the Pennsylvania Department of State has told county elections officials.

State Elections Commissioner Chet Harhut said that, as long as a voter does not try to campaign in the polling place, his or her attire should not matter. Harhut's position was outlined in a memo sent out last week. "Of primary concern is that no duly registered person be turned away at the polls," Harhut said. "If the conduct and apparel of a voter is determined to be more than passive, it should be addressed by the district election officials."

The Pennsylvania chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union had sought clarification about the issue because of voter complaints in recent elections from Allegheny, Lancaster, Montgomery and York Counties.

Harhut said it is reasonable for counties to prohibit poll watchers from wearing clothing or buttons that "show or advocate the election of a candidate or candidates of a specific political party." - AP

With all the crazy stuff going on like counties saying you can't vote because your house is foreclosed so technically that's not your address (http://wonkette.com/402689/foreclosed-homeowners-dont-deserve-to-vote)...I think I'll just be cautious and rock a white t lol....

Boo This Woman.


I know this is random. I know it is. But read it anyway. So, for broke rappers like me. We spend countless hours on MySpace and other sites trying to find fans. In my nightly MySpace scan, I ran across maybe the stupidest statement I've seen in a while. This is homegirl had in her "music" section to describe her taste:

"Ill listen to anything as long as it has a nice beat and a message, but it doesnt matter what the message is."

Boo this woman.

Josh Howard: Enemy of America



Video footage of the Allen Iverson Celebrity Flag Football game in Maryland. Check out the quote at 1 minutes 40 seconds when Josh Howard from the Dallas Mavericks is on camera during the national anthem: "Thats a suspect banner going on right now I don't even celebrate that shit...I'm black goddamn Obama all that shit" Classic.

Also check out shots of street baller White Chocolate, Carmelo and Slim Charles/Big G from the Wire as well as various womens...

I remember when Wayne could actually rap...





This shit right here dog... All-time great verse in my opinion and off a mixtape that barely anyone heard, imagine that. Every line is on point, now compare it to current brain-turned-to-mush Wayne. Drugs are bad mmmkay.

"Comparisons is irrelevant I'm an arrogant male. Yeah I could handle it I could graduate Yale..." Yikes...

One more for good measure. Waynes at 2:00

Eddie Murphy on Mike Tyson and Larry Holmes

If you seen Delirious and Raw you know what to expect from this audio clip. "Larry you just lost the fight what happened....Well I'd just like to say f*ck you, f*ck him, f*ck the judges, and since we on HBO yall can suck my mothaf*ckin d*ck" lmao





Blackout "Murphy"

*Extra for just a small laugh, Eddie does a small impression of Charlie and sounds just like him.

Boondocks - Shinin (Riley's Theme)

I'm an avid Boondocks fan and the "Thugnificent" series was hilarious. Still thought Ludacris shoulda played the Thugnificent role. But here is funny song after Riley gets his Lethal Interjection Chain. "I'm a cut throat player like O.J. Simpson"
