I know this double cover is going to plastered over everyone's blog today, but the First Couple looks so fab I could not resist. Michelle is especially killing it on her cover! Michelle is doing so much for the image of black women everywhere, and I love being able to say she is from Chicago! I love the Obamas to death!!!

The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
First we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once the soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume in Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities:

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?'
The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.. See what you think.
'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'
Rebecca- age 8

You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'
Billy - age 4

Noelle - age 7
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'
Tommy - age 6
'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'

Karen - age 7
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'
Mark - age 6
'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'
Jessica - age 8
And the final one
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
'Nothing, ! I just helped him cry'
*Cindy, Clare, and the winner had me tearing up. Which one is your favorite?*

This story really gets to me because today my family suffered yet another loss. My nephew was born prematurely two months ago, and today his little heart gave out. There is no way I can make the trip to Chicago. My older brother is devastated, just like the rest of the family. In the two months he was here fighting for his life, we loved the hell out of him. Children are a gift from God, and are supposed to be nurtured and loved. But time and time again, we hear stories about little kids getting pregnant, murdering each other. When is the madness going to stop? Do you know how many families lose their babies everyday, and would die for the chance to be good to them, while you turn yours into little monsters?
I had no intent to blog today, but I have to speak. People, please hug your kids, tell them you love them daily, and be the best damn parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, you can be. Please, do it for the babies.

This shyt is wrong. I really hate it when kids are betrayed by people they should be able to trust, like caregivers. I bet that bus driver would go ballistic if someone did this to her kids. And the fact that it was covered up for so long... If I was his mother, I would kick someone's ass and then sue.

Most people see Veteran's Day simply as a day off from work. Being a veteran myself, it has so much more meaning to me.
I know from first hand experience the sacrifices the men and women in the service have to make. I know exactly how deeply it affects the family. I had two godchildren born while I was active duty, and could only be there for my best friend over the phone while she was in labor. I came home to visit one time, and one of my other friends showed me a beautiful sleeping 5 month old boy. When I asked her who's baby it was, she said it was hers! That was a shock.
When I left for the Navy, my little brother was 2-years-old, and he was my freakin shadow. They would show him my picture every day, and ask him who I was. Still, when I finally got to go home to visit, he didn't know me, and it broke my heart. My sister had to give up her big sister for 4 years, and along with that, she lost some heart to hearts that could have saved her a lot of heartache.
My story is just one of millions. I have plenty of friends from high school who went, and still are in some cases, active duty. I still work with the military and have a deep bond with lots of people. I am blessed to be able to say none of my friends has been killed in the line of duty. Each and every one of them are able to go home to their families whole. But not everyone is as lucky as me and my friends. So many families get service member back less than they were when they left. Too many get theirs back in body bags.
So today, take a moment to think of all the men and women and their families who willingly sacrifice so much so you can continue to enjoy the basic freedoms you take for granted. God bless our veterans. Thank you for your sacrifices. I salute you and your family.

Yes we can. Yes we did. Yes we will.
So, the most recent "child" to be abandoned is 18 years old. What in the hell? Her adoptive mother said she can't control the girl, and the girl is refusing to take her meds (I think the article said she was bi-polar or something).
Something about this just aint sitting right with me. One woman abandoned 5 kids at a hospital. That was an entire family! What in the hell? I mean, yes, it's good people now have the option to drop their kids off somewhere safe, but I think people are abusing this. What do ya'll think?

The Chicago po-po aint playin.
"Barack Obama's motorcade had an unexpected occurrence while ferrying the president-elect to a security briefing at Chicago FBI headquarters Thursday morning.As the motorcade pulled onto Van Buren, towards the Loop, a couple in a tan sedan tried to drive around the heavily-armed line of vehicles, wrote pool reporter P.J. Hufstutter of the Los Angeles Times:The SUV cut the car off immediately, and the security team aimed their weapons at the car. The driver and passenger in the sedan stopped, and looked stunned -- until the male driver appeared to understand what was happening (your pool reporter could see him mouth "Obama"). The motorcade continued on. The sedan remained stopped, near the side of the road. [...] Some of the drivers here in Chicago do not seem to understand that a) the Chicago police car at the end of the president-elect's motorcade is serious about having traffic pull over when the officers flash their lights and hit their sirens, and b) it's not a great idea to jump ahead of traffic by trying to cut around the black SUV filled with five heavily-armed secret service CAT members." Huffingtonpost.com
Why those fools thought they could cut off a cop car with flashing lights in CHICAGO, is totally beyond me. The cops should have given them a warning shot, but knowing my damn city, the fools in the car would've have just shot back. SMDH

"North Charleston, S.C. - For a 93-year old North Charleston woman, casting her vote was a matter of life and death.Very little was missing in Dora Fitzgerald's 93 years of life, she had a marriage of 65 years and family that spreads generations, but politics was never a passion until the final year of her life.“She was very moved for Barack Obama ’s passion for fixing things, and his articulate way of delivering his message and she just decided she was going to vote for him,” said her daughter, M. Fitzgerald.But as her health declined M Fitzgerald took care of her mother, watching her slowly slip away.“It was beautiful, it was sad, tragic, you prepare for it, you know it's coming, and still when it happens, you’re completely crushed,” said M. Fitzgerald.But Mrs. Fitzgerald didn’t leave quietly, there was unfinished business."She said I don’t know if I’m going to live that long, but I plan on sticking around to vote for him,” said M. Fitzgerald.Fearful that November was too long to wait, her daughter sent for an absentee ballot. It arrived last week.“She made her mark, and we put it in the envelope, my brother and I walked to the mailbox, it was 11 o’clock Wednesday morning and I said ‘Mom its in the mail, you’ve done your thing, Barack’s going to win,’ and she kind of smiled and it was kind of a deep sigh, a sigh of relief, and in less than an hour later, she died,” said M. Fitzgerald.She traveled the world, raised a family, lived a full life, and on her death bed exercised her right to vote.“The only thing left on her list was to make sure she got her voice heard, and she did,” said M. Fitzgerald.Mrs. Fitzgerald was born in 1915 and according to her family, she voted in 19 presidential elections.She is survived by her nine children; William of Garmisch, Germany; Michael of New Sweden, ME; Joseph of Seattle, WA; Kathleen of Murrieta, CA; Shelagh of Caribou, ME; Timothy of Portland, ME; Terence (Terry) of Foxborough, MA; Patrick of Charleston, SC; and Mary T. of North Charleston, SC. She’s also survived by 18 grandchildren and more than a dozen great-grand kids." wcivnews.com
Mrs Fitzgerald...you are an inspiration to us all.

Supposedly, some woman in PA was robbed at the ATM by a black male attacker. Then when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car, he used a dull knife to carve a "B" in her face. Are you for real, man? What in the hell? Now, I know some people have been pulling yard signs out of people's yards, but what in the hell were you thinking?! Barack don't need this kind of foolishness! And I bet this fool aint even gonna vote.
I can only hope it's not true, cuz the article does mention police have gotten conflicting stories, and the "B" on her face is backwards, like it would be if someone did it to themselves while looking in the mirror. I'm just sayin...
Anyway, Barack doesn't need anymore negative attention! So boo to you, you damn fool!
A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they join together and wish themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.
At first these white people breathe a sigh of relief. At last, they say, no more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone!! Then suddenly, reality sets in. The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at all--- only a barren land.There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system.
There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it one finds great difficulty reaching high floors.
There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gear shift, Joseph Gammell, also black, invented the Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan invented the traffic signals.
Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its precursor was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man, Elbert R. Robinson.
Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.
There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purvis invented the fountain pen, Lee Burridge invented the Type Writing Machine and A.Lovette invented the Advanced Printing Press. They were all (you guessed it) black.
Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purvis invented the Hand Stamp and Phillip Downing invented the Letter Drop.
The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.
When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and poorly heated.
You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of course, stupid, Lewis Latimer invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the Lantern and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray, the Dust Pan.
Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing Board and George T. Samon invented the
Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another black man, John Standard invented the refrigerator. Now, ain't that something? What would this world be like without the contributions of Black folks?
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "That by the time we leave for work we have been dependent on half the world-modern America is created by dependencies on the inventions from the minds of Black folks." Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey and Dubois. Black history is American History and the History of America would not be so, without Black people.
And if ya didn't know, now ya know.
*There wouldn't be an America without black people.*

First of all, 100% beef? What are you, a damn cow? How did you come up with the concept for that tat. Why in the hell do you have on spandex pants in the club? You didn't have anything better to wear? And your hood rat friends. Why in the hell do they have their faces on your ass like that?! I'm too through with this whole situation. I seriously have to stop going to You Know You Dead Azz Wrong! She's gonna get me fired, for real for real.
Lord, please save us. Some of us need more help than others.
*Sidenote: I think I might start watching Survivor. I suddenly have an irresistible urge to watch, lol.

As you can tell from the title, this episode does a lot of talking about whether or not God (and angels) exist.
Now, I am not going to go into a full on scene by scene breakdown. For one thing, it's an hour long. On top of that, I told ya'll I'm not liking this 9 o'clock time slot. I was tired and cranky, so I don't exactly remember everything.
Barack Obama has come out and said the American people need to know what their future President is going to do about this situation, and postponing the debate is not in the best interest of the American people. I completely agree. Not only that, the date McCain proposed to have the debate is the same day of the vice presidential debate. So, it seems like the Republican party is trying to shield Sarah Palin once again. McCain realized Obama's numbers were up and decided doing this debate was not in his best interest. The Republican party is trying to pull the okey doke on the American people. People, we can not have this man in office. Spread the word, make sure all your friends are registered to vote. The deadlines are approaching quickly. Do your part to get Obama in office.

Ok, so this guy goes to the doctor to have a circumcision. When he wakes up, HIS ENTIRE PENIS IS GONE! The doctor found cancer and amputated the whole thing. So Mr. Philip Seaton is suing him because he "has suffered mental anguish, pain, and has lost the enjoyment of life." Uh, you think?
I am dying to know his exact train of thought. As he's coming out of the anesthesia, is he thinking, 'It's so cold in here my sausage has shriveled right up. Wait a minute. It's not that damn cold! Where the hell is my dick!' Did the doctor take just the dick and leave the balls? I mean, what in the hell? I knew men could get testicular cancer, but I've never heard of cancer of the penis. I feel sorry for the dude, but I just can't stop laughing! Maybe it's cuz I'm a woman, and can't comprehend the loss of a penis. If I was his wife, though, I'd be mad as hell!

Please, please, please advise everyone you know
that they absolutely can NOT go to the polls wearing any Obama (or whoever you
are voting for) shirts, pins, hats, etc. It is AGAINST THE LAW and will be
grounds to have the polling officials to turn you away. This is considered
campaigning and no one can campaign within X amount of feet of the polls. They
are counting on us being overly excited and not being aware of this long
standing law that you can bet will be ENFORCED THIS YEAR!!!!!
They are banking that if you are turned away, you will not go home and
change your clothes and return to the polls to vote. Please just don't wear ANY
gear of any sorts to the polls! Please share this information with as many
people as you can. If you are already aware of this, please don't take it as
insulting your intelligence.
Have a great day and see you at the polls on
You better believe they are going to pull out all the stops to keep Obama out of office. Pass this info along to as many people as you can. And don't forget to vote.
YES WE CAN! OBAMA IN '08!
I swear to God if I see one more heffa with a painted on shirt, Ima personally fly to their city and WHOOP THEY ASS! Bitch, this shyt is not cute! And you on the left, you didn't have to paint "HO" on yourself; trust me, boo boo, I bet they already knew. And if they didn't know, it was more than apparent when yo ass sat down in da corner and let some dude paint a shirt on you! I'm too through. I suggest we all band together to form Da Ho Patrol. Basically, we patrol the world to let bitches like this know, Sit Yo Ass Down, Ho! Who's with me?

So, we're watching the previews, and Mr. D points out there are no action previews. It's mostly drama, the sappy stuff. In other words, he feels TP is setting women up to be sad. Shut up, Mr. D. You're spoiling it. But I love you anyway.
Now, I will not give away too much of the movie. But I have got to say it was FANTASTIC! Alfre Woodard and Kathy Bates do a wonderful job as two women from very different lifestyles that have managed to be the best of friends. It was completely believable and very moving. And even though I hate to admit it, TP, even with his mini fro and scruffy face, still manages to come off as effeminate. There, Mr. D, you happy? Tyler Perry is a tooty fruity.
Sanaa Lathan was AWESOME! I didn't really appreciate one of my favorite actresses play such a bitch, but she played the hell out of that role! From her very first scene, she was a bitch. How you gonna be talkin shyt about a woman payin for your entire damn wedding? And then at your reception, how you gonna be givin another man the googly eyes with your new husband standing next to you? And the poor dummy didn't even pick up on it. You dumb ass.
Sanaa Lathan as Andrea is a truly ruthless bitch. She is constantly putting her husband down and telling him he will never be William Cartwright, and the fool takes it. At one point she tells Ben (TP) the same thing, and he tells her, "Look here, I don't wanna be no damn William Cartwright!" And I'm like, 'It's about damn time somebody said it!'
Now, I in no way condone this, but bitch deserved it. So, Andrea and Chris are arguing in the family diner, in front of erbody and them, and Andrea is punking the hell out of him. Ben finally drops the bomb that errbody, and I do mean ERRBODY, but Chris knows Andrea is fuckin William Cartwright. So Chris is like, is this true? And she's like he's my man. And he says but we have a son. And SHE says, "My son is Cartwright." Chris turns his head away, then back hand slaps the bitch across a counter! I mean this bitch flew over the counter and onto the floor! She got hit harder than ol' girl in Family Reunion the movie, but trust me, even the white people in the theater was like "It's about damn time!" I mean, Andrea is really that much of a bitch.
I'm sorry, I really didn't want to give away too much, but damn! They built up to that perfectly, and you really don't expect Chris' soft ass to do that. However, it did bring up a topic of discussion for me and Mr. D. Andrea didn't respect her husband because she made more money than him. He had a respectable job, she just made more money. So the bitch started a 5 year affair with a man she felt was better and also used him to try and get to the top. And the stupid bitch thought he would leave his wife and child and marry her. Sistas, why do we constantly dog out perfectly good brothers and think the dude you are cheating with is going to wife you? He don't even respect you! Why do you think the only time you spend together is in the hotel room? Shyt like that turns good men into bitter men who no longer respect the rest of us because of your trifling ass.
Robin Givens is also in here and does a beautiful job as a sista who worked her way to the top instead of laying on her back like Andrea. She also put Andrea in her place, but of course the bitch is too full of herself to realize the truth Robin's character is spitting.
Anyway, I've given away too much already. I felt this movie broke away from Tyler's usual pattern, but of course Mr. D didn't. He did, however, admit he kinda liked it. Whatever. I give the movie an A+, and it's one I want to watch again. Oh, and yes, he did manage to fit a church scene in the chaos. The movie possibly could have done without, but it served a purpose. Go see the movie, heffas! You'll love it!
Oh, and since we didn't see it opening weekend, we didn't see the preview for Madea Goes To Jail, so for those of you who did, I DON'T LIKE YOU. Toodles!
Anyway, I guess I show offer my congrats, but I'm SERIOUSLY not feeling this dude. Couldn't she have picked a cute reject, like J Hud? But she's the one who has to look at this troll for the rest of her life, not me, so I say congrats. I just can't see him being a cover model, unless it's Troll Illustrated. Later, heffas!
