Best quality video Youtube had, sorry.

Lately, I’ve only been reblogging Kanye or POTUS posts. Talk about quality.

“What I noticed is that that office takes your personality and exaggerates it — you become a caricature of who you are. And he has a personality trait that costs him politically, and it’s the personality trait of a writer. He really is at bottom a writer, and the trait is — he’s in a moment and not in a moment at the same time. He can be in a room but detach himself at the same time. It’s almost as if he’s writing about it at the same time he’s participating in it. It’s a curious inside-outside thing, and the charge that he’s aloof grows right out of this trait.

Michelle Obama’s DNC speech tonight has drawn rave reviews, igniting social media networks across the board. it’s since been reported that she wrote the speech herself, and had been practising it over the course of the last month. What did you guys think? (Part 2 here, credit to Playstationality.)

Martin Luther King Jr. 

A lot of people on the internet are using this quotation to comment on the way Americans have celebrated Bin Laden’s death. I get the point that it is rather morbid to celebrate anyone’s death. I know killing Bin Laden will not end terrorism; and it may, in fact, exacerbate threats to security. But let’s be real here. If the United States decided not to kill the man, they would have just keep him in Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo and tortured the shit out of him (which is a complete human rights mess in itself). Anyone who thinks that ‘love’ and forgiveness was the way to deal with Bin Laden is delusional. Anyone who thinks we should have spared him his life and granted him the right to a trial hasn’t been paying attention to the news the last nine years. The problem with quotations is we universalize them without understanding the context in which they were stated. Who really knows what MLK Jr. would have thought about the Geronimo E-KIA operation. Homeboy would have probably still been celebrating the fact that Obama’s commander-in-chief. We don’t all have to rejoice at the fact that Al Qaeda’s figurehead was killed. Different people react differently. But I think it’s perfectly fine to feel a sense of relief and justice - and to celebrate it. I don’t think it’s fair to fault Americans for rejoicing. Most of the explanations I’ve found just want to be politically correct about the whole ordeal. Fuck political correctness. The guy killed 3,000 people in 9/11 alone. Who knows how many Muslim civilians died under his orders. Most days, I don’t actually believe in the saying ‘an eye for an eye’; but Bin Laden is a definite exception. 

I’m glad the motherfucker is dead.

“I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we  put out, this issue will not be put to rest.  But I’m speaking to the  vast majority of people, as well as to the press: we do not have time  for this kind of silliness.  We’ve got better stuff to do.  I’ve got better stuff to do.”

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”

Ganun kasi. :>

Note to future husband. A man can’t be without his woman ;)

She’s the HBIC of this OTP. ONTD has been my mechanism of procrastination the last few weeks. Forgive me.

Palin: Obama Asking for Punch in the Face

President Obama’s nuclear weapons reduction policy is “like a kid asking for a punch in the face,” Sarah Palin said yesterday. “It’s unbelievable,” Palin told Sean Hannity. “It’s like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of them says, ‘Go ahead, punch me in the face. I’m not going to retaliate. Do what you want to with me.’”

People “are going to rise up and say: ‘No more.’ National security, national defense is the No. 1 job of the federal government,” she added. On another topic, when asked if she feels embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele should step down over the sex-club expenses flap, Palin responded: “I think he’s doing a great job.” Palin made her remarks appearing with Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann on a special edition of Hannity’s program in Minneapolis before an audience of people who had just attended a Palin-Bachmann rally, reports ABC News.

I want to punch this bitch in the face.
