What happens Next?

What up... just checking with my people. Hope all is well your way. Well as "well" as it can be given the state of the world. In my world it's the same, watching people from afar, keeping an eye on the news, working on my Brand and trying to stay alive. It's funny that nowadays thats not just a saying, "Tryna Stay Alive". It's an actuality. So much shit is going on these days that if you're not careful, you won't be here tomorrow. I watch the news and hear about Home invasions, Robberies, Kidnappings, Suicides etc.. Every single broadcast. When I see that I always think of the SAME thing. What are WE gonna do. Have you noticed that Every single thing that happens today is based on the fact the Economy is SOOO Bad? People are killing and Robbing because they don't have anything, and all the programs that used to be in place to help those type of situations have been washed up and shut down. I'm not giving robbers and killers an excuse, I'm just saying there's more Robbers and killers today that are BY-Products of our fucked up economy. You've seen the Movie John Q right? Well even though Denzel Washington was a wanted man by the Police, he was actually doing the RIGHT thing. Well today that isn't a movie, that is the normal everyday life. People are losing their homes, and being given no option but to live on the streets. No programs. They are laying off teachers, police, closing hospitals, Trying to shut down unemployment. Is the Government CRAZY? Do they not understand they are literally gonna start a 2nd Civil War.
For those that don't know what a "civil war" is... that's a war within the same country. The first "civil" war was between the Northern States and the Southern States. The North Won, but the South still flies that racist Confederate Flag that represents all the states that fought to keep Slavery Alive.
But the next "Civil" War will be the Have's vs. The Have not's. The people vs. the machine.

Unless Obama's administration does something soon, I can see this world turning upside down. Shit, it already has if you ask me. Go to any real ghetto in America. Its a fucking Warzone. And that can only stay contained so long. You see over in Jamaica they're shooting and bombing the police right? There is only so much pain people can take. And you know the Crazy thing? It's not Just a "Black Thing". White people are losing their homes and jobs as well. They're being denied assistance too.
They are looking at the Government like "What the Hell??" too. Why do you think THEY voted for Obama in the first place? Lol. Shit had gotten so bad that even THEY were willing to try something different. They Bought into the "CHANGE" Just like we did.
But now we are all tired of asking... Where is the Change? Looks the same, Smells the Same, but feels worse. Now people are Demanding it. Did you see the video of Obama being called a "Liar" by a busrider when he was speaking to them? (CLICK HERE TO SEE)
People are hurting and America doesn't give a damn... or so it seems. While we're dealing with foreclosure, sickness, police shortages, hospital closings, job shortages, no programs for the kids, gang uprisings, rise in killings, urban warfare, higher prices..etc etc. We are watching them get bailouts, bonuses, pay increases, raise taxes, raise gas prices..etc etc. But everytime theres a crisis(Haiti, Oil Spill etc..) They ask for money from US??? Where is all the money they are already taking??
All I now is Something has got to give. Because people are growing tired of "asking" for help... What comes Next? You don't want to know. Watch 2Pac in the Video Below, and let him tell you...

  1. Very true and its sad that the world is this way. You're right turn on the news and for the first ten minutes you hear about killings, robberies, and so on. The world is a different place from when I was growing up and its a scary place. Its scary now because you don't know what's next. Anyone of us can lose jobs, homes, and whatever else we hold precious to us. Its not promised. Even people that have their own businesses are fighting to stay on top. It doesn't matter who you are. Sad that we have billionaires in this world that could step up and help more. Am not saying they have to give up every penny and their not obligated but do something. Everyday we face a new challenge. People are tired of this. You have people trying to build and maintain a life yet every time you look up jobs are lost, programs are cut and the list goes on. The opening question is one hard to answer " What happens next?" If only we knew.....
