"You want answers?........ You can't handle the truth"
~~~Col. Nathan R. Jessup-A Few Good Men~~~
I have a confession to make, I am one cynical son of a bitch. I keep a GPS device in my car because I never ask for directions. I rarely buy shit on sale because I know the price has already been marked up 100%. And if someone says: "jump in, the water is fine"; please believe that I am dipping my toes in that bitch before I jump.
So to all you folks calling me a cynic and labeling me a typical "Negadelphian", tell me something I don't already know.
But my negativity has served me well in life, and I never find myself getting too high or too low. My mind is like a boat that never gets rocked, because I am usually right about what lies beneath the ocean ahead of me.
Now lately I have been catching some heat from you Obamaholics for telling it like it is about your boy. You have been shooting at the messenger. But I want you to know that I have nothing but love for you. In fact, for the next few months, think of this site as the home of Obamaholics Anonymous. Before you comment or post, you can just say hi, I am [insert whatever name here] and I am an Obamaholic. And then you can spill your guts to me and all the other Obamaholics tuning in. You can tell me all about your fears and your disappointments, and why you can't shake your "O" man jones. Hey, I know his presidency is important to you, and if he were to lose.....well the thought of going cold turkey has got to be killing you.
Now don't get me wrong, I think it would be nice if the "O" man won the presidency. Although he isn't perfect. I have issues with him supporting the "Patriot Act"; I have some issues with him not supporting S-14 which would have raised minimum wage, and I have issues with his failure to support S-317 which would have stopped government agents from snooping through our library records. And when he says shit like "I'm not an ideologue, never have been", it's troubling. But unlike a lot of other people, I actually think the symbolism of a Barack presidency would be good. And I think having him in the White House would actually help U.S. foreign policy more than hurt it. But I am also a realist, and I know that the "O" man in the White House won't stop one single crack dealer in North Philly from dealing drugs. "Oh well, there is a black man in the white house, I am going to stop slinging now, cause I know he wouldn't like that" It won't help me or my firm to get one single bond contract with the city. " Hi Mr. City Solicitor, it's me the field Negro, and you have to give me some bond work now because Obama, a black man, is president." Nope, I don't think so. In fact, I am pretty sure that it will be business as usual in Washington, and the folks on "K" Street will be just as busy as they were before. But the typical Obamaholic doesn't want to hear that, because he(she) has bigger plans. The "O" man is the drug that can bring us all together and make us forget all the bad things that has happened to us in the past, and we need him now. Lord knows we need him. We need that Obama hit to feed our addiction. And damn it, some cynical black man posting on a blog called the field Negro will not spoil our show or dull our high.
But listen to me folks: when you do decide to kick the "O" addiction, just remember, the field is here. Think of me as your friendly neighborhood "O" man counselor; willing to give you the tough love and whatever else is needed to cure your addiction.
Now repeat after me: My name is [_________] and I am an Obamaholic.
