Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

A Copy And Paste Moment: Reading Random Newspapers At 3 AM

Secure the border first, then let's talk immigration reform...

Here is another way to consider the problem: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a leader in the anti-immigration movement and acclaimed as America's toughest sheriff, cannot secure his own jails. Every year, despite armed guards, electronic locks and video monitors, inmates smuggle drugs in from the outside and sometimes even escape.

No one would blame Arpaio. All penal institutions, regardless of security measures, have breaches. Yet imagine if America adopted a position that no new laws could be passed regarding prison reform "until the nation's jails are secure."

I was talking to KRS-One and he said you could add 'fear and hate' to the 'sex and violence' as things that will always sell.

The standard that is set for border control cannot be met and never will be. As long as some unenlightend people can say how 'unsecure' our borders are, they will fight immagration reform.

But didn't all the 9-11 cats have their papers..? The first WTC bomber..? Jus' sayin'.
