    So here we are...
    After.
    Arguments have replaced the laughter.
    The newness of gifts have faded,
    And people are still homeless...
    Who did they spend Christmas with?
    Somewhere wrapped in a blanket
    with Jack Frost eating humble pie.
    Trying 2 get a spot on the heated grate,
    reflecting over their troubled lives.
    I guess noone asked Jolly old St. Nick 4 some peace on Earth,
    cuz the war's still being fought in Iraq...
    They still haven't found those weapons we were told they had.
    Oh, I forgot they told us that that wasn't actually a fact.

    Bush administration is tryin' 2 cover their tracks
    By constantly saying they believed those weapons
    were being created which constituted a preemptive attack.
    And Bush is showin' his true colors by
    just shruggin' his shoulders...
    Stutterin' & stammerin' has replaced the
    adamant speeches delivered by Colin.
    Condee isn't even seen in the public eye.

    This president's aggression & cowboy demeanor is
    burning bridges linking 2 other nations.
    Muttering statements that contradict what he said before the invasion.
    This country's children are dying while he's takin' family vacations.
    He commited fraud in the worst degree...
    Isn't that cause 2 have a change in this regime?
    I was turned against voting cuz of the garbage with the last election...
    But I'll do it once more cuz Bush has got 2 get 2 steppin'.

    I'm feelin ya Bro

    But thats the way it goes.
    And election is coming soon...
    No need to make an effort
    For I have already assumed...
    He shall reign for 4 more years....
    And despite your rejection...
    What about your coworkers and peers...
    We live in a nation where many don't care...
    And many make no attempts to become aware.
    But atleast we still see...
    what is keeping our world from its destiny of peace...
    Soon the tables will turn..
    A light shall shine for those have yet to learn...
    So new year... Same problems...
    Keep it in the Gods' hands...
    I got feelin....
    In due time... He's gonna solve them. ;)

    Peace and Love...
    For together.. we can overcome the BEAST!!!!

    Excellent Scribe... Made good points.. that carry volume...
    I heard the sound.. and it was loud... Definitely nice...loving your flow...

    Great points were made here, and I like the way you brought them...A bitter pill to swallow, living in a land where the most popular candidate was not actually chosen. I suppose Florida's votes will be counted a thousand different times this time? What will happen next is anybody's guess.

    Supreme thanks 4 the feel on this one fam.

    Sister shaneak, I sincerely hope you're wrong with your assumption, cuz this country won't last if he does get another go 'round, maybe that will be it's downfall I predicted.

    Brother Khasm, I know U do, that's why I keep talkin' cuz I ain't scared of them muthatfvckas.

    watzinaname, they're already havin' problems with the new machines they have in Fl., it's supposed 2 be a touch-screen type of joint, so why are they havin' probs? Hmmmm.... And ain't it funny that Fl. is where his lil bruh is gov.?

    mzblk, thank U completely.

    gempis, I'm right with U, if I think about him 2 much, my blood pressure rises, & U know how black people get high blood pressure, maybe that's his aim.

    If there is ever a time we need to vote...

    thanks for sharing this brother
    there may not be a lot of options
    for us...but "Bush" definitely ain't
    one of them...

    $$, and angelic, thank U 4 the read.

    Have U heard that Bushg wanted 2 start a war with Hussein before 9/11, one of his ex-insiders spoke about it, it's all over the news today.

    angelic, I'm gonna use different identities & costumes on that day, like they use to do.
