[video] Lupe Fiasco, Thrown Off Stage At Inaugural Concert

This is the now infamous performance where Lupe gets kicked off stage for spitting some anti-Obama lyrics during a performance of some inauguration related event. Those of us familiar with Lupe, know his diatribes against Obama so this is nothing new. A friend of mines stated that those who booked him should of known what they were getting into by having him perform. This is a fair statement, but was Lupe hired to perform under the context that he would perform material that was free of any criticism of the Obama administration? If so then Lupe is an self righteous asshole looking for attention. If not then to the promoters who booked him you get what you pay for.

[video] President Obama Speaks Out on Trayvon Martin Tragedy

Finally some words from POTUS about the assassination of Trayvon Martin.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

President Obama spoke in highly personal terms on Friday about how the shooting in Florida of a 17-year-old black youth named Trayvon Martin had affected him, saying that “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

The comments by Mr. Obama were his first on the explosive case in which George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, has claimed self defense after shooting Mr. Martin several weeks ago. The case has generated outrage about the state’s so-called Stand Your Ground law.

Sarah Palin decides NOT TO RUN for PRESIDENT

I don’t care what she says the nail in the coffin was the GLENN RICE story which she has not publicly denied at all. Her statement to her crushed supporters below:

October 5, 2011
Wasilla, Alaska
After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.
My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the “fundamental transformation” of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.

[pic] OFC ‘Obama Fried Chicken’ debuts in China(WTF)

I guess this is legal over there. They must either be pushing stereotypes, love chicken,love Obama or a combination of all three. What do you guys think? By the way will KFC demand they stop infringing on there obvious rip off of their brand and logo?

via Daily Mail
Is Obama abandoning his bid for a second term in the White House and is giving Colonel Sanders a run for his money by opening a chain of fried chicken joints?
Now that’s change you can’t really believe in.
But in Beijing, China, a restaurant is actually calling itself OFC with a logo that looks alarmingly like the President dressed in the colonel’s clothes.

[video] Steve Harvey blasts Tavis Smiley & Cornel West, calls them ‘UNCLE TOMS’ for criticism of President Obama

Shots fired! This right here is a tough one to call. On the one hand, this administration has not done nearly enough to address the poverty in this country so strong criticism there is justified.  On the other hand Cornel West and Tavis Smiley seem to have an axe against the President and are not offering any solutions to the problem outside of pointing fingers. This is gonna get nasty and probably will not bring about any solutions in the long run.

“I was a huge fan of Cornel West,” said Harvey. “[But] Tavis, I seen him coming a mile away. His anger started when he had a town hall meeting, President Obama couldn’t come because of the campaign trail and he sent Mrs. Obama. He has held that grudge every since. You don’t have any real basis behind your dislike for this man…you keep masking it saying it’s not about hate. Then what is it about? Poverty existed before January 20, 2008. Where was your damn bus then?”

Harvey then clowned West and Smiley in a skit titled UTLO.org – “Uncle Tom Look Out” where an Uncle Tom is driving the bus.

[Must Read] Mark Cuban’s Open Letter to President Obama

Its great to see President-elect Obama aggressively taking on the economy prior to his taking office. Unfortunately, the economic advisory team that he has put together looks more like a semester’s worth of great guest speakers for an MBA class than an economic advisory team that can truly help him.

There are a lot of great minds on the list:

Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Laura Tyson, who served as Clinton’s top economic adviser; former Fed Vice Chairman Roger Ferguson; Time Warner Inc. Chairman Richard Parsons; former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman William Donaldson and Xerox Corp. Chief Executive Officer Anne Mulcahy.
Google Inc. CEO Eric Schmidt, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Roel Campos, an ex-SEC commissioner, and Warren Buffett are also on the advisory board.

Notice anything missing?

Not a single entrepreneur. Yes Warren Buffett started a business, but he will be the first to tell you that he “doesn’t do start ups”. Which means there isn’t a single person advising PE Obama that we know of that knows what it’s like to start and run a business in this or any economic climate. That’s a huge problem. Continue reading
