THE NEW YORKER Too? What the Fuck!!!

Posted in Bamboozled, Barack Obama, Blogroll, Michelle Obama on July 14th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Damn it’s been a rough couple days for Barack. First this then this!?!

When is this motherfucking shit going to end?

Yeah I’m mad, but trust I know what I’m talking about here. Don’t buy this magazine if your life depends on it people.

So what that NEW YORKER readers are gonna get it, does that really matter outside of New York? Is the dude turning pages whistling from Manhattan, KS really going to read a 15,000 word “serious” piece on Barack Obama?

Hell no!

America Goes Nuts Regarding Jesse Jackson’s Off Air Comments About Barack Obama

Posted in 2008 Presidential Election, Barack Obama, Blogroll, Ernie Johnson, Jesse Jackson, NYOIL on July 12th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Without Jesse, there is no Barack

As I sit here a sports writer a little perturbed three White athletes got off (media coverage) because of Brett Favre’s right to change his mind (he’s a legend, when he’s gone, he’s gone), I have to step out of my box and write from a very neglected corner of my soul that is about to become the most vocal. I’m very appreciative for the NYOIL interview for it made peace the steps I personally need to take in whatever happens to me personally and professionally.

Just got off the air on WVON 1690 in Chicago–Curtis Monday’s Dollars and Sense show. I was part of a panel that included Jill Johnson–who works in IT and has done some stuff with the Department of Defense, and Bonita Parker, Chief Operating Officer, Operation Push.

I can’t give up on Hip Hop. My sons deserve the right to pass it to their sons who will be grandfathers.

It’s a Wrap: Barack Obama Wins the 2008 Democratic Nomination For President of the United States

Posted in Barack Obama on June 4th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

This is history people. Soak it up. Did any of you realistically think this was going to happen during your lifetime?

Barack has crossed the delegate threshold and in the process becomes the first African American to win a major party’s presidential nomination.

What are your thoughts on his chances in November against the Republican candidate, John McCain?

Hillary Just Get Out! There’s No Benevolence In Assassination Comment

Posted in assassination, Barack Obama, Blogroll, Hillary Clinton, Keith Olberman, Robert Kennedy on May 24th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

First Hillary’s words so there’s no confusion or the common excuse of her words being used out of context:

Then Keith Olberman goes off for ten plus minutes:

For anyone to say the words assassination in a race led by a Black man is both unacceptable, inexcusable and just plain bullshit. “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it.”

The Contradictions….My The Contradictions

Posted in 2008 Presidential Election, Barack Obama, Blogroll, John McCain on May 19th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

You would think McCain would be versed 500 hundred times to have a standard response handy just in case…

Just let it run and brace one time for ya mind because some folk will actually vote for this cat just because Barack is Black.

Ain’t No Future In Yo Frontin’ folks. If ya racist ya racist. Just stop with all the bullshit euphemisms and put on that sheet. Come on…you know you want to.

Are you serious? But I thought we’ve come so far?

Sent this from Miranda who is just as disgusted as I am. I couldn’t imagine living in the area where these shirts are sold outside of a bar. People listen, there some things that change but a lot is going to stay the same. We can only hope that the good people out there of all races understand what’s at stake in November.

How in the hell can they want George Bush 3?!? Remember 4 dollars for gas is not far from 10. Don’t think it’s beyond the realm of possibility.

Christian Boone of the AJC wrote a piece on this in today’s edition.

Is it me or could Hilary been seen as a Republican in all of this? She’s going hard on Barack…for what? That’s a look every man knows.

Today is a pivotal day that will go a long way into shaping which Democrat will win the nomination.

Is this a dream or someone’s nightmare?

There seems to be a serious and madly determined campaign to smear Barack Obama at all costs. You would think America had enough of Republican politics after the last 8 years.
