Sign O’ the Times…

In 2006 Senator Barack Obama announced his candidacy to campaign for the 2008 Presidential election. The world witnessed the outcome of such an historic moment, and as an African American I was never more proud than if he was a member of my family. It showed me that after eight years of idiocracy and nepotism and just bad decisions coming from the GOP and the Bush administration, that the nation was ready for a change.

The nation was abuzz with the fact that there had not been such a ground swell of support for a presidential candidate since President John F. Kennedy. Slowly, the old guard began to see that this young Black man was representative of what many felt…and they believed that he was the change we all needed. However, the right-wing had a field day, calling President Obama a rock star, and then when he went on his European tour prior they dubbed him the Messiah.

At that time I shrugged off all comments about Obama being the Messiah, or when folks referred to him as “the second coming of Christ” because I’m thinking who would be crazy enough to view him as such. He is just a man, albeit an intelligent, methodical, and critically thinking man, he is still a man. As much as I was enamored with his candidacy, as much as I loved his smart campaign and his grass roots process, as much as I loved and reveled in the love he had for his Black wife and beautiful black children, as much as I loved hearing his intelligent thoughts and seeing how his mind worked, and lets be honest, he is a very good looking man, I did not then nor do I now think of him as the Messiah.

But I see a lot of folks that are thinking of him like that and it got me to thinking about the Bible. Yes, I was thinking about the Bible, and although I may not know the exact chapter & verse(s) (thinking Matthew 24 but not sure), and I may even get this wrong, but doesn’t it talk about ‘beware false prophets” and how the seasons begin to blend, the talk and rumors of war, the devastating earthquakes, and famines.

I don’t know if people are aware of it or not, but in my humble opinion, I see it as a sign of the times and our time here is limited, and what is going on in this world shows it every day, that the coming of the Son of Man is close. Some people may say “the devil is busy”, but true believers and those with truth faith are seeing “birthing pains” unlike any other.

There are “rogue” and/or unstable nations with unstable regimes acquiring nuclear weapons and hoarding terrorist. There are unnatural and at times surreal weather events like tsunami’s, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, extreme heat, extreme cold, polar ice caps melting, genocide, dormant volcanoes erupting, and a host of “signs” of end times. What I see are families being killed because of money. Families are being fragmented because of the loss of jobs, and the loss of their homes. Mothers and Fathers killing innocent children to me is not the devil at work persay, but again a sign…

Call me crazy, call me cooky, but I cannot be the only one who thinks like this or who is beginning to question why people are going off the deep end? Are there others that see/think in a similar fashion…please chime in.

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…

Are Women Whores for Money?

I have been thinking about this topic for a minute and I plan to discuss it at length soon, but for right now, I just have one question, or rather an observation.

Is it me or are women whores for money? Are women whores for a certain lifestyle to the point that they sell their souls to live the good life? They don't care if their man is phucking half of the nation so long as he brings the bacon home to them. They don't care if he looks like the broad side of a bus or the bottom of a shoe, so long as his dollars are long and his pockets are deep. I've heard women say, {self included} that so long as he was making money that he could do any damn thing he wanted...but that is a hypothetical situation. In real life, having dated men with money, I realized one thing - they are the most arrogant assholes around! So I had to say to myself what was more important, that man, that man and his money, that man his money and his lifestyle I was enthralled by, or my self respect. Guess w…

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 …
