You ever heard of the term, turn tail and run?
Well right about now, that sounds kind of fun.

Can anyone tell me where Mos Def went?
I’m currently considering how my savings will be spent.

It looks like I may need to consider – sooner than later,
just how I’ll survive “the swamp,” its snakes and gators.

You gotta know when to hold ’em
know when to fold ’em
know when to walk away,
know when to run…

because something on the hill is very rotten.
For by the adversary, we stand naked – to be gotten.

We must refrain from using the word “mistruth” when it’s a lie.
I don’t desire a comrade who wishes democracy to die.

God has given us the earth, our lives, love, and freedom.
Not for a select few, but for every breathing one.

Careful not to sit back and have your democracy undone
because an elite few prefer to consume the majority of the sum.

Paying more taxes will cut into your yum-yum. How are those tax cuts working out you?
You’re definitely paying and the government isn’t playing when your bill comes due.

It’s the America we love; our tax dollars always pull us through.
Nevermind the government’s dime, he can depend on me and you.

Are you voting frequently too? I really need you to be.
I can’t say enough about us needing more love and respect for democracy.

Alas, the week is coming to a close, I’ve enjoyed it; it’s really been fun.
I’m Qui
and as rough as it’s been, I’m your dependable friend, I’m not going to turn tail and run.

Democracy is a worthy sum.

VOTE.

Okay, Okay – here I am again
with a quick shout out to a cultural friend —
Rodney King died last week, at the 20-year mark
of the LA Riots and his famous remark:

“Can’t we all just get along?”
The cops beat the man – but his spirit stayed strong.
His response was good; the verdict was wrong.
Too soon Mr. King has crossed over and gone home.

Then there’s insight from Bill Maher again.
I won’t transcribe it — I’ll give you the short end:

Rachel Maddow was on the panel and they were riding the ‘witch hunt’ shoulder
of the Republicans on The Fast & Furious case & going after AG Eric Holder.

What do you think about it? I’m really not that deep in a twist
about how the government screws-up-stuff and the casualty of bad gigs.

I hate that lives have been lost, over guns we sold “to track”.
I hate that AG Holder is on the line – but someone’s got to answer to that.
RATS!

Jerry Sandusky’s trial made topic. In fact the verdict was coming in as Bill’s show started.
Mr. Sandusky [looking baffled and husky] – found guilt on 45 of 48 of the charges.

No one deserves to be violated. but Mr. S. just didn’t seem to get it.
That’s why when it came to him taking the stand, his defense said, “Forget it.”

Romney came up in the news again (campaigning against Obama).
Bill was dead on with the Hologram song – the Republicans are praying for drama.

Here’s a new Mitt Romney ad – going after the elderly vote.
You know I’m into theatrics so… I i-phoned the video:

“Wouldn’t it be nice if America had a leader that believed and cared about things that are important to you. Who asks the same questions you do? Questions like, “Is that the phone ringing? Or is that just the phone ringing on T.V.? And I have a coupon – Have you seen where I put it? What’s happened to the America that you knew? The music is too loud; the pants are too low; the guy who wipes your ass is Hatian. Mitt Romney is okay with the VCR. He doesn’t understand why they had to go and make everything on DVD.

Mitt Romeny has a better way. I say MITT ROMNEY HAS A BETTER WAY.

He knows where your kids hid your car keys and he’ll tell you where they are.
So put *VOTE FOR ROMNEY* on your bucket list today.”

Bill is hilarious and the commercial is a joke.
Bill is more interested in legalizing smokes.
Bill is so liberal, so brilliant, so cool.
That’s why he headlining my News Peruse.

Other historical news this weekend, is that EGYPT had an election
and voted in democracy to strengthen their world connections.

Life is not without hardship – many trials rue the day.
I’m just glad the peoples vote rules Egypt’s land today.
Hip! Hip! Hooray!

Arizona made the news, SB1070 went to the Supreme Court
and they kicked down, ‘they won’t be giving a pound to legalizing a racist sport’.

With 3 of the 4 provision having not made the bill –
Arizona stills claims a win. But the win is 3/4’s ill.

I’m living in the Zone, but not agreeing with the politics.
I sure hope this SB1070 is a plight that never sticks.

And so today the PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION is only 129 days away.
Our countrys future is on the line and the rules to play are PAY.

Don’t get caught up in the commercials – remember who really cares,
