Jesus Camp

I know I'm a little late on this one, but I just saw this film a minute ago, and I am slightly disturbed. I'm not one to bash anyone's beliefs, but these people had kids praying to a cardboard cut out of George Bush! Really????! And they wonder why people view them as fanatics. This is just a reminder of how people have taken God out of context and use IT as a propeller for nonsense. They think they can use God to control the government? How unconstitutional is that?! Isn't that the reason the first European settlers left Europe? This country is founded upon the belief that all citizens have the right to their own religious beliefs. Whatever you choose to believe God is is your choice, and your right. To watch this film in its entirety click here. For, what I think, is the truth, watch the Zeitgeist movie here.

Michelle Obama an AKA?????

Sunday night (July 13th), it was announced at the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Boule (National Convention) that Michelle Obama will be inducted as an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Sources on the scene at the National convention tell me the ceremony is set to take place this week in Washington, DC during the Sorority’s National Convention festivities.
I won’t hold it against her since I’m sure it was strictly a timing convenience for which Sorority she would be inducted into since this is the centennial anniversary of the Sorority and the convention is happening this week in DC.
Congrats to Mrs. Obama and congrats to the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. But I do have one pressing question; whats the point of having honorary members?

No word on a release date.....

When Good Jokes Go Bad

Here's the upcoming cover of The New Yorker. As you can see it features Barack in a Muslim head wrap and Michelle looking like some kind of militant Black woman [check the afro]. Also depicted is a burning American flan and a portrait of Osama Bin Laden. Apparently the people over at The New Yorker tried to make light of all the terrorist jokes made about the Obama family. They failed horribly. Both Senator Obama and McCain have called this image tastless and offensive. I personally think it would have been better if it depicted McCain and his wife in this setting. Reversing the roles probably would have made the joke more obvious.
In other news, later today Mr. George W. Bush is set to lift the ban on offshore drilling [for oil of course]. No surprise there. This guy clearly doesn't understand the meaning of alternative fuel, and shows no concern for the rising costs of oil. Oh well........ Obama '08.
