    irony monopoly
    sue / break down microsoft because
    of unfair practices
    all I ask is this do we break down the
    U.S. for giving the world grief
    have us all shoveling ****
    sounds like a RI OT
    in the making..................buildings have
    already tumbled as other means of
    defense have crumbled / and do you think
    this arrogance would be humbled?
    hell no...bush has placed his hand on
    palestine and laid down demands
    change governments
    change leaders
    change ways
    political placement of who's the pawn
    will have people running into macy's
    blowing **** up for their cause
    and who's to blame them
    we have a government who's out to shame them
    spank them for "not staying in their place"
    for standing up for what they believe in
    the same way this country did, ask England

    the RI OT is worldwide / people tired of
    being beaten down by big brother
    from Compton to Afganistan
    (the beatings are the same)

    all people of color are under attack
    just the administration of methods
    separates us...

    we need to understand the fight of the Palestinian
    understand the fight of the Cuban
    understand the fight of the Somalian
    undertstand the fight of the Haitian
    understand the fight of the common man
    and understand that all our woes have a common
    denominator...monopolizing/power hungry/greedy/sacriligious/
    Europeans...

    blakverb "just blowing steam"

    I have grown tired of all this political bullying and bullmanure. See family, what this country does across the seas is no different than what hey subject us too here. What we go through here is just not as overt. What they do across the seas will affect us all in the end. 911 is not a one time thing. People are tired of the punishment. A riot is a burp when the country has severe indigestion. This country has been sick for a long time.

    you're on point with the message in this piece...

    it would seem that america is content with playing a rather unfair role in many of its foreign policies, particularly with Bush's recent Middle East "peace" proposal, which is both arrogant & far from condusive to addressing, fairly, all the issues that are existing between Israel & Palestine...

    furthermore, you are absolutely right in your assessment that "people are tired of the punishment." In a oppressor/oppressed paradigm, there always will exist a breaking point of sorts, a time when people will begin to believe that there is nothing to lose, and everything to gain...that is key in revolution...

    lol...i didn't mean to get all long-winded on you...your piece just conjured up all of those thoughts...

    thank you for doing your part in trying to open some eyes to the injustices that our government commits in "our" name...
