I am not a huge politics buff; but I have been around since the Reagan Administration and all I can remember from his term in office is that “government cheese”, the “War On Drugs”, and the influx of drugs in my neighborhood occurred concurrently.
I remember the first Iraq War during President Bush Sr.’s first term. I remember President Clinton’s term taught me what it meant to “impeach” a president. We still remember President Bush Jr.’s reign as a baby dictator, like a Freddy Krueger nightmare, so there is no need to expound on what I remember from his term.
I say all of this to say..that I feel for President Obama. Here this man is trying to clean up all of the mess and restore dignity and humanity to democracy and everyone has something bad to say. We all know why he is getting the bulk of this disdain. At the same time the people who supported him in the beginning should still be supporting him now. He has not let me down as a president. He is one of the only presidents in my lifetime that actually seems like he has human interest in mind over personal gain.
Elections are less than five weeks away. The beauty of the technological age is that you don’t have to go too far to do research. Lets research who is running for office to represent us.We need to elect officials that will align themselves with the work that needs to be done!
There is a saying that goes like “he/she can’t walk and chew bubblegum @ the same time. In lamens terms that means that he/she has poor multitasking skills.
Driving here in Atlanta can be a task. I have found that many times people are trying to text and drive at the same time. There are people who are even horrible drivers when talking on the phone. I am often floored @ the carelessness people exhibit when they are on the phone and driving
” I can text and drive”, many people may say; hogwash I say..There are so many people that cannot walk and chew bubblegum so what makes them think that they can actually communicate via cellphone and drive?
I am really sick of this epedemic. I am a great multitasker and when I am driving I respect the fact that this machine needs my undivided attention. When will we as people take our lives and the lives of others more seriously? 5,500 people died in 2009 in car accidents that involved texting while driving and talking while driving. Since this is relatively a new issue there could possibly be more related deaths that are going unnoticed.
To whom much is given much is required. We have so much technology, but we need to also be responsible when incorporating it in our everyday lives.. Sound off.! Am I tripping or do I have a valid point?
If I see another woman in those damn leggings without at least a shirt that covers their behind I am gonna scream! I thought that last years fad would have gone away. What has occured since their debut again is pure tragedy.
I was at a pretty popular hood club here in Atlanta(East Point technically speaking) called Central Station. I began to see drolls of young women of all sizes wearing the see through leggings. Some of them had on ripped up leggings, some had on sheer lace ones. If you are getting the mental picture of foolish and mayhem then I guess I am conveying what I saw correctly. I have never seen such wrongness in one place. When I go out I barely want to see the scantily clad outfits let alone a bunch of girls in leggings that were never created for them to be worn as pants. So the next time you see a disturbing display of a woman in leggings please rest assure that you are not alone in your dismay. Tell the offenders ” girl bye” and maybe eventually they will actually put some real pants on!
It was a nice sunny September day. I was looking forward to seeing Sista Soulja on campus that day. I walked into the post office on campus to check my P.O. box as usual. I remember the clerk saying in a somber voice…”I dont think you guys are having class today.” I asked “why” in a perplexed voice. The clerk looked at me in awe and replied:”You havent heard what happened?” The clerk began to explain what occurred. I began to stroll back to my room thinking that the situation couldn’t be that bad because this type of thing never occurs on American soil. I turned on my television and thus began the change of times as I knew it. I realized that as a sophmore in college I was becoming a young woman in a world that would never ever be the same after 9/11. Tell me about how you felt when you recieved the news.
