Respect

I Wanna….

I wanna do it right, I wanna do it well
God knows that I never ever wanna fail
I don’t wanna hit the bottom, roll straight to the top
Only to hit the top, and haters call me a flop
Hustle is what I do, Loyal to who I see
Respect to all the peeps that show love to me
I wanna do it right, I wanna do it well
God knows that I never ever wanna fail
I wanna be the hardest, I wanna be the realest
I wanna be the smartest, I wanna be the trillest
I wanna be the best at all I see and touch
I wanna be the guy that comes through in a clutch
I wanna be the franchise, the man, the icon
Like The Rock, Brahma Bull, I wanna be the great one
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, nigga run it
No matter what I do, I always go 100

Acknowledgement

I generally speak to 80% of the people I see.
Why?!
Honestly, I think someone told me once before to always acknowledge the presence of someone. It is a respect thing. I generally don’t care if anyone speaks back, I just cannot make eye contact without saying something or politely nodding my head. It is not a sign of weakness, it is just respect.

I generally do it because I think some people walk around and no one even notices them. Trust me, you are noticed and someone is always watching. They just do not have the courage to say they are watching. It is a genuine thing when I say “Hi, Hey, What’s Up, How are you, You good” or when I wave or shoot the deuces. I’ll take time out of what I am doing to show anyone respect because in order to get respect, it has to be shown.

I acknowledge the world because a small fraction of it acknowledges me.

I acknowledge the world because I am in it.

I acknowledge the people because I am not above them. I am one of them.

Sarah Palin ‘affair’: big media stays quiet as ‘lover’ named…(Whoop de do!)

“While America’s respectable media focus on John McCain’s acceptance speech to the Republican faithful, blogs and gossip sites continue to lead the feeding frenzy surrounding the National Enquirer’s allegation, reported here yesterday, that McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin had an affair with her husband’s business partner.”

Like I’m supposed to care about who this lady’s having an affair with. This is one reason to dislike the media. Instead of covering the issues or how she stands on political ideas, we gotta hear about who she’s fucking. No one cars about this while people are fighting in an unnecessary war and Americans are dying on Iraqi streets and American streets as well. I don’t want to know about who she’s sleeping with while I pay almost $50 to fill up the gas tank on my car.

“National Enquirer” National Slander is more like it.

End of Mother’s Day…or Is It?

We take this holiday, set aside to celebrate mothers. True enough, they put in so much hard work for their children, even when they become adults. As this day ends, the celebration of a mother should NEVER end. As long as a child lives, he or she should honor, love, and respect the one lady that spent countless hours, cried countless tears, and dedicated their lives to make sure that a child has what he or she needs. For that, everyday should be Mother’s Day, because to me, there’s not a day that goes by that I do not think about my mother. Though I’ve spent the last 4 years living on my own, I know that she’s always with me.
