So I know it's been a while since last we spoke but I've been so busy with life I hardly have time to relax and have a moment to myself let alone pick up the laptop and bore you guys with all the details of what's going on with me. Anyway I read Mr. P's view on this whole election saga and the whole black and white issues surrounding them and I must say I agree, racism is definately not dead. Though we as americans want to believe that we live in this fairy tale eutopia where it is non existant, it is very much alive, but understand it goes both ways! I'm not writing today to go into all that though. What I will say is that you shouldn't vote on this country's next leader based on the color of their skin instead it should be on the best candidate who you feel will do the best job and represent the country as a whole with our best interest in mind with no regard to their ethnicity. Keep in mind there is no pure american! We are all mixed up in one way or another. Indians were here first and since then we've mixed up so much some of us don't know what kind of ethnicity is in our geneological tree. Hell, I'm puerto rican which is a mixture of spaniard, caribbean indian and african.
What I don't want for this country is for people to be so blinded by the color spectrum that they lose sight of what's really important which is that finally Bush will be out of office and it surely can't get any worse than what he's done for us or should I say to us! At the same time people please know the views of your candidate. Know what they intend to do with our country know what they stand for and learn about their background before you make an uninformed decision and it back fires on us.
I heard this interview on the radio today where a reporter was asking some young black men who they were voting for, of course they said Obama. When asked about Obama's decision on having Palin run as his VP they said they would have no problem with a woman as his Vice President! HELLO, that's McCain running mate! See the reporter switched all of Obama's stances with McCain's and just told the guys that they were Obama's and they all sided with Obama, not even knowing that the reporter just proved his point on people choosing their candidate based on color. This type of uninformed decisions could bring this whole country down to it's knees. I don't want to bore you with all this electorial mumbo jumbo all I want to say is that knowledge is power and please make sure you are all informed and make your decision on the candidate that best fits you!

What it do America? It's ya boy Mr. P. Man we apologize for being out of pocket for so long, but we are all grown so you can understand life throws you curve balls and it took us awhile to adjust our swing. But we back slowly but surely. Well since we last blogged we;ve moved into another house, I received a promotion at my job and then Mrs. P had her car stolen all in a one month span. So lifes been bitter sweet, but all in all we're good. The stories behind all these events will come in time I'm just too lazy to type about all of them now. Also I'm sure that Mrs. P will fill you all in on them as well so just hang tight. But I must warn you that I have a condition withshort term memory loss due to the "Medication" that I am taking so if you happen to want to hear about a particular story feel free to post a comment and we will oblige.
Well there is alot going on nowadays. Its election time and this years race is full of entertainment. As I stated before I was never big into politics until this year and boy have I been missing some ill sh**. I don't know if all elections are this greasy, but this sh** is crazy. First thing I noticed is that racism is still very much alive in this country, I mean I'm no fool but Obama running for president has made the racists come out of the wood work. But this is the tripped out part he gets hated on by black and white people. Pardon my french but thats f****** up. He gets 5x the hate of a regular blackman but he is only half black. Thats like having two crazy a** baby mommas who don't even like each other but join together to bring you down. I admire Barack though, because he displays poise in this race like Tom Brady in the pocket. He takes their best shots and kills them with kindness. He shakes it off and he keeps it moving. The hardest thing in the world to do. When people make sly remarks in the media regarding him and his family he keeps it moving. Thats a real man. He has his mind on his mission and won't let petty b.s. get in his way. Cause lord knows if somebody was on tv talking sideways about my fam I'm going to want to see whats the deal when we meet.
I also noticed that although Barack is catching it hard, its hell on anyone of Indian decent. Man they catch it from everybody too. White people are still pissed about 911 and hate anything that looks like its terrorist related. I mean they can be persian, hindu, pakistani it doesn't matter they are officially in the "they all look alike" club. Black people we already don't trust anybody or anything so in our minds if these terrorist took down a plane and some buildings then they aint playing. Black people have survived too many shootouts in the hood to have somebody blow them up while they out of the hood.
I'm not goin to get into the actual election may the best man win. But for real though Sarah Palin looks like she is about a bottle of Patron away from being on like Girls Gone Wild making out on a bus with chicks. Seriously why did he choose her? The only purpose she serves is to be eye candy. Listening to her talk about politics is like reading a low rider magazine.
Thats it for now as I can feel the carpel tunnel setting in.
