Ok, due to the lack of energy in this tribe...I thought Id get the waves started and rant a lil of my own non sence...|
I live in a town called San Leandro, Ca (just south of Oakland)...lived here for about my whole life. Im 22 years old and have watched my neighborhood change over the years. It's gone from a place where kids can carelessly play baseball in the street to a wasteland of loud cars blasting "bling bling" shit music and cars passing by at careless speeds. Over the years, I have seen my hometown become a lower class/middle class wasteland where people don't really care about eachother and it's the mentality of "ME FIRST ASSHOLE!!!"
Is this America???
I believe in somepart it is...it's the American way...it's the "don't fuck with us becuase we are the best" attitude which has so strongly come over this country like a blindfold.
The ghetto will always be the ghetto...you can't control people that don't want control. Oakland, in my case, has become a city with at least 100 homicides a year (last year I believe it ended with 115 or so.) On the nightly news, they would say.."well, Oakland has it's 100th homicde in the books tonight..." Now, it's not even mentioned becuase it has gotten a whole lot worse.
Our president says we are "being terrorized" by people who associate themselves with "Al Queda" and "Saddam Husein"...
Did he ever think that the citizens of Oakland or any city are being "Terroized" by it's own every night???
We have gotten ourselves so paranoid since 9/11 that we only think of Terriorists as being of "middle eastern" decent...my grandmother was terriorized by two guys who tried to rob her in her own house...yet, we (tax payers) spend Millions if not Billions of Dollars on "Homeland Security"....what a fucking joke!
I have a lot more views on many other subjects but I think I said my peace...
