Ummm...WTH hell happened????

"It's funny we pay taxes, but don't pay attention."--Freeway

Is it just me or when the elections were goin on everybody and their momma turned into Tom Brokaw of the blogosphere and ish??? Now that Obama is in there, what I wanna know is what happened to all the political blogs? Are these same people still paying attention? Or was is just more inspiring to write about when "4 more years" was a possibility?

I hope they are still paying attention. Just because we may have a good dude at the wheel that doesn't mean that somebody still won't try to peel your cap back...And I hate to even take that tone with it. I would like to think that people can be motivated to pay attention for a reason other than the fear of getting screwed...but hey...

Truth is, it's just generally a healthy habit to have, being aware of the world around you.


  1. I feel you Jay. I was thinking the same thing. I'm not surprised, b/c everybody got so Obama gun-ho, that they forgot this was still Amerikkka. Like now, I'm worried & hoping this bail out don't come back & bite us, taxpayers. Racism is still alive, but it seems no one is addressing that anymore either. Man, I tell ya. I'm getting so unmotivated by the blog pages, I'm about to say the hell with all of them & just focus on my art.

  2. lol, I'm one of those folks you're talking about. Honestly, I haven't been paying as much attention and I haven't been in the mood to blog. My attention and mind has been elsewhere. Maybe when this semester is over, I'll have more free time.

  3. I hear yah...when Obama was in the running for the seat, everyone had a comment and blog to write. Now, it is kind of like "well, he's president so it really don't matter". My inspiration for ever writing about anything involving any of our presidents was more or less their actions and the actions of the people in reference to something a president was doing...but you know, people generally are always on to the next more interesting Chris and Rhianna or Lindsay trying to kill her damn self LOL

  4. was just having this discussion with someone the other day. i admit, i have slacked on keeping up as much as i did pre-election, but i still try to read most of the headlines and such so i won't be totally clueless. being aware is very important.
