Why I Baracked The Vote...

Today is an historical moment for the nation. I cannot say just for me or my family, although I will be celebrating with 4 generations tonight, I cannot begin to describe the series of emotions flowing through me.

I have always voted from the time I turned 18 to now...and I have to say that this is the most defining moment in my life! I watched as my my mother and father, both in their 70's vote...my mother with tears in her eyes and to be honest, my father got mistyeyed as well...it was amazing to see the number of African American's standing in line today...A LINE!!! I have never stood in a line to vote ever, and this morning I stood in line for an hour, which I know isn't long compared to some areas, but for our area here, which is traditionally a RED county although Maryland is a blue state, I was amazed and elated. My heart soared seeing these people standing in line...neighbors talking, and strangers embracing one another all of us with this look of hope and a burning need to see change.

Not only change, but you can see the pride in people's faces at having Barack Obama potentially on the cusp of becoming the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. This happiness is marred by the sadness of the passing of his granmother who unfortunately did live long enough to see, although she cast her vote for her grandson via absentee ballot...she isn't here in body, but her spirit I am sure is surrounding him. As I heard one person say, "she went to talk to God to make sure her grandson won...", which I thought was amazing.

As I said, I cannot begin to describe the myriad of emotions running through me at this time, but I can say, Obama's steadiness, his critical thinking at time of crisis and peril, his thought provoking words has inspired me unlike anyone else.

Now I know some folks are voting for him because he is black and I can understand that...but Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were black and I damn sure didn't vote for them...because of two things, 1. They weren't qualified and 2. I didn't believe in them. See I believe in Barack Hussein Obama...I believe he is going to unite the States and I think he is going to make the USA the world leader that it used to be...if you travel out of the country you will note that most European's have a disdain for American's and I think if he win's that disdain will change, because it could possibly show that America is changing if they are forward thinking enough to vote an African American as POTUS.

I Baracked The Vote, because I believe in Barack Obama...why did you vote...?

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so horny...it hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came here...to you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
