    Is it just me, or do others find it offensive when people ask these types of questions without feeling they should answer it first themselves? No matter how silly the question is....

    Good afternoon, Rich...

    And glad to find you're back again!

    But what I wrote wasn't clear enough?

    Simply put:

    The general impression is some here consider themselves self proclaimed leaders...

    The flip side is I'm also not so sure as to who feels or thinks the aformetioned are 'their' leaders?

    I. e., so when somebody posts on these threads, what exactly do they represent, a person--an agenda--a critic or detractor of somebody whose ideas etc. they don't consider a realistic option--or are undermining there's in order to advance their own?

    I dunno...

    I have to guess sometimes...

    I'd rather know what the facts are--know what is the difference--i. e., between what some just choose to believe--as opposed to what is the truth!

    Simply put:

    While I find some discussions and debates important, I must admit to also not always considering everything being posted on some threads relevant or significant enough to even bring up by the way of my other allies, etc., elsewhere.., i. e., via cyberspace and/or in the real world...

    I have strived and tried to bring up issues and problems of concern and worry to me and mine etc., and so sorry for even me to have to say and write this, but it's long overdue for the handful of regular posters here-- who aren't a reflection of heavy denial about the obvious issues/problems/etc. facing them and theirs--also to face up to the fact others here are!

    A case study is a white capitalist controlled mass media, part of which for the sake of 'entertainment' overpromotes gangsta rap; while in this nation allegedly hyping 'family values', no notable minister--white or black--blasts the blatant immorality ad naseum of what its 'entertainers' promote

    So when some of the same 'leaders' dare to berate and chide as well as lecture other nation's leaders about the shortcomings of those other countries etc., bad enough the aformentioned come across as the worlds worst hypocrites, worst is they let other bad elements go on with their b. s., and by the way of default?

    Add to that how feelings as well as thoughts are mixed here too, i. e., whereas some consider being a hip hop artist an alternative to hustling in the streets (aka resorting to criminal means to make ends meet), whereas if you're merely catering to the people who are a part of the problem, suchlike more than implies and suggests the aformetioned are of the same outlooks, etc.?

    I say and write that we too have to be for real about it all...

    I came here hoping and praying to advise/assist/etc. folks already doing something about the issues/problems/etc.

    Otherwise all we're doing is just making more noise...

    It's also like that...

    And that's the way it is...

    Obviously that needs to change...

    Nobody can do that for you...

    You have to do it for yourselves...

    End of rant...

    End of speech...

    Even though you're writing/talking at--not directly to me--I'd appreciate an answer to your question too...

    Y'see, my man, I love a challenge!

    Representation implies:

    1) a transference of power specifically power of attorney
    2) fiduciary duties from the grantee (attorney-in-fact) to the grantor (principal)

    Example:
    House of Representatives is supposed to represent the people, but how do the people exert any control over their agent other than voting when said agent breaches the fiduciary duty?

    I was just wondering because you're not the only person who does it. But, especially in your case because you don't make your question clear even after being asked to clarify. It seems that you are not asking one question but many wrapped up in one as your 'explanation' to rich seemingly indicates but it too was all over the place.....

    the short version:

    As for me, i only represent and speak for myself. I have no 'agenda' and never have....I simply speak on how i feel and it can be taken or let alone! I haven't asked anyone to follow me anywhere, nor have i EVER told anyone here how they should be posting and or the issues they should be focused on and discussing.....

    so do consider that too:



    How 'bout you chuck?

    I don't see any leaders here. Not a one.
    I only see frames of thought. Opinions, and perspectives on Idea and political views. people sharing their thoughts and views.
