Fox News

Word. Nas was right Fox News is a "sly fox" it me or is Fox News the most ridiculous news broadcast in our country? I just watch a Newscaster "Hannity's Headline" turn a few word that President Obama said in France "America has shown arrogance", which is very true we have shown arrogance, we are also a very confident country, and take them completely out of context. Is this because he is a Republican and very conservative? I think we are arrogant to an extent and some of our arrogance has gotten us into the situation we are in now with an economic downturn (recession), rising energy cost and a war with Iraq which is has no merrit we should be fighting terrorism in Afghanastan where the terrorist are plotting and killing innocent people. Yeah there are cells in Iraq but only because we have created the issue over there. I think we have done a lot of great things in Iraq to help them to start to create a democracy and create a better situation for their country, but it time to have an impact on where the issue is not where there are small cells.

The President also said this week in Turkey:

"Now, our two democracies are confronted by an unprecedented set of challenges. An economic crisis that recognizes no borders. Extremism that leads to the killing of innocent men, women and children. Strains on our energy supply and a changing climate. The proliferation of the world’s deadliest weapons, and the persistence of tragic conflict.
These are the great tests of our young century. And the choices that we make in the coming years will determine whether the future will be shaped by fear or by freedom; by poverty or by prosperity; by strife or by a just, secure and lasting peace.
This much is certain: no one nation can confront these challenges alone, and all nations have a stake in overcoming them. That is why we must listen to one another, and seek common ground. That is why we must build on our mutual interests, and rise above our differences. We are stronger when we act together."

The President is not trying to talk down on our country he is simply trying to make the way we are preceived in the world better. Is it a bad thing to try and improve our standing in the world by reaching out to those that have considered us to be arrogant and abbresive and change the way the begin to think about our great country? I don't think so, people from every country in the world live and work and contribute to the growth and prosperity in The United Sates and there is no reason why people all over the world should be angry or against our country, the best country in the world (there some of that arrogance).

President Obama has been in office for 74 days he didn't create any of these issues we are having, he is simply trying to make our situation better for the future of our country and the world.

Think about and comment on what you think...we can have different opinions but like the president said "we must listen to one another, and seek common ground. That is why we must build on our common interest and rise above our differences. We are stronger when we act together."

Change! Make it Happen quit Talkin'!

It funny to hear how we all talk about how hip hop has changed, or that hip hop is dead.  I myself get caught up in the conversations and the hype, but hip hop is about change.  The style of hip hop that we all know and love may be considered dead but that doesn't mean that it can't be resurrected!  If you don't like the current state of hip hop then join in the fight to change it.  

With the nation screaming for change and the world screaming for change I have been intrigued over the course of the last year as I listen to individuals talk about change but that is all they do, just talk.  If we want things to change then we have to take the necessary steps to make that change happen.  I've been intensely involved in this years presidential campaign and watching and learning at every twist and turn of this historic campaign.  I've worked in the field to educate young people, by the way they are the ones that can really start to make the change happen, about why it is important for them to vote.  First and foremost it is your civic duty as a citizen of the United States to vote, this is a privilege that too many of us take for granted.  Secondly and most importantly all of those people that don't vote, are the same people that bitch and moan about how things need to change don't just talk about the change be about it!  

Get out there and let your voice be heard!  To many people fought for equal rights, fought for democracy for us not to pay attention to what could be the most important election in our lifetime.  Our young people do not truely understand what a huge impact they could have on our nation.  If you are of age and are a legal citizen of the United States...please vote and do it for the right reasons.  Your vote does count, make a choice...there are only two candidates left, so choose one and follow the campaign so you can make an educated decision.  Remember it's your civic duty to vote, let your voice be heard!
