That is the part I heard. For all I know there are utilities to pay or something else. Now figuring this paycheck he received is most likely for two weeks- I don't believe it is noted in the commercial- I can't help but figure he is the biggest loser in the world. He is paying just $200 for rent? He must live in a closet. Only 19 bucks for gas is a bargain. I wish I was spending just 19 bones a week for gas. And what is with mentioning he needs to buy a CD? Dude, you go download your music and use that money for drinking. Oh wait, this cheap fuck probably doesn't have a computer. Can't afford it. Still, you have no drinking money? That $14 should be going towards a case of Milwaukee's Best so you can get a cheap drunk on. Yes Wendy's guy, you are the biggest loser in radio.
The whole Corretta Scott King funeral has become an even sadder event. How do you justify working your own political opinion into a funeral? This isn't about your thoughts of the world. It is about the person who has passed and what they did for everyone. These so called "leaders" should be ashamed of themselves. The Reverend Lowrey had this comment:
She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar. We
know now that there were no weapons of mass destruction over there," Lowery
Hmm...focus on the "we know now" part. One part incorrect and one part that defeats the purpose of his comment. Go ahead and check on WMDs in Iraq. There have been weapons found. Not the huge pile that everyone was hoping; that the media has made the general public believe. But illegal weapons were found in Iraq. The components for chemical weapons were found, just not put together. Like that makes a difference.
But let's focus on the "now" part. So in other words, you admit the President was right to believe in the intelligence the US had. Same intelligence that every other country that mattered had that showed Iraq had these weapons. That the President didn't lie. But apparently "now" is all that mattered. Not if Hussein did have the weapons and nothing was done, and had used to them to kill MORE innocent people.
He went on with this one too:
"For war, billions more, but no more for the poor!"
Exactly what does that mean? How exactly does one help the poor? Enable them to sit around and do nothing. I believe they need to help themselves. They cannot sit back for a handout. They need to take the time to use get up and get the needed training for a better job. Hey, I am not saying I have the answers hear, but I have not heard any from these so called "leaders".
Even the biggest joke of a President, Jimmy Carter had to chime in. He started well, but couldn't resist getting a jab in:
"This commerative ceremony this morning, this afternoon, is not only toIsn't there be more opportunity right now for victims of Katrina? Seriously. There is for those who want to take advantage of the situation. I have read many stories of workers coming in from all over the south to help clear debris and rebuild the area. You live there. You have a great opportunity to get in there and help, learn a skill that could benefit you for years to come. But instead, you want to receive the government payout, and have them rebuild your home.
acknowledge the great contributions of Coretta and Martin, but to remind us that
the struggle for equal rights is not over. We only have to recall the color of
the faces of those in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi," Carter said, the rest
of his sentence drowned out by loud applause. "Those who were most devastated by
[Hurricane] Katrina know that there are not yet equal opportunities for all
Americans. It is our responsibility to continue their crusade."
Opportunity comes to those who reach out for it.
Still, I find it sad that some people need to use a funeral to get their political points across. Maybe some day the black community can wake up and realize that the way out is to make themselves stronger, independent people. Not by taking the government hand out.
So instead of trying to help those who won't help themselves, go help someone who is deserving. Check out Dr. Pauly and his request to help BG. BG is Bobby Bracelet's bro. Both are good people. Go help. You will be glad you did.
Tomorrow I will have a report on the research I have put into Liquor Muffin. I dove in head first. The results were sweet, a tad messy at times, but tasty!
