So I wanted to address all those kats out there that seem me as a one sided individual that is drunk off the ‘kool-aid’. Before you start talking about me do me a favor and get to know me first. There is a method to my madness, I don’t recklessly rant about politics or life.
When it comes to tweeting or blogging, let’s be clear I do this for fun but at the same time I am not out here to embarrass myself.
Well…. Except when I talk about Maggie Gyllenhaal, tweet about Speidi or reply to Amanda Bynes tweets; HaHa!!!
What was I saying again????
Oh yeah, I’m not reckless…
As I was saying, if you know me I only talk about what I know. I am not a puppet or a walking talking point. I do my research and come to my own conclusions. Too many people in this world are closed minded and make decisions based on half truths or misguided beliefs. This world is about having an open mind and the willingness to learn something new.
I pride myself on looking at both sides and giving the benefit of the doubt when necessary. I am the type of person that listens to any argument and try to understand that person’s stance. And when I don’t have all the facts, I will take a step back and look it up.
With that said, someone referred to me today as being strong one way and that I jump on any point that actually lowers my viewpoint. Hmmm, interesting…
Let me see if I can break this down in simple terms.
I will agree that I can be strong one way, but isn’t that the case when you believe in something? When I know something and or believe in something I am going to defend my viewpoint when I hear uninformed rebuttals. I can’t let you spit lies or half truths, I am sorry but that’s me! I thought that’s what your suppose to do, if not please let me know.
As for me jumping on someone when they say something to lower my point. Again I have to ask, what am I suppose to do? If I know your wrong I will let you know, if you can’t handle that then don’t jump in the ring with me. I got stamina and I almost never say “No Mas”.
I am not a pushover when it comes to debating. I will let you say what you have to say but you better come correct. “Ain’t No Half Steppin”, as Big Daddy Kane once said. I think I just dated myself with that last joint, lol.
I am not trying to come off as knowing everything but I am confident in what I do know. One day I could be watching Rachel Maddow the next day I am listening to Mark Levine on he radio. So when you say I am one way or that I drink the kool-aid your sadly mistaken.
So relax and pump the brakes when you see me or read my work. Take it however you want to take, it is what is.
Keep in mind I will only send one warning shot. If your all about ‘Talking Points’ “Child Please” (Thanks Ocho) I have no respect for your debate game. Being Sean Hannity’s or Glenn Beck’s puppet is trash, your easy to debate and easy to frustrate.
All in all I love to talk the “Facts”, but keep it at the facts. All you “Birthers”, “Truthers”, and Tea Party Nation kats stay away from facts like it’s the plague. I can’t deal with that, your all NUTBAGS!!!
Ok, I am good now. Had to release for a minute, LOL!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
Word, enjoyed seeing u b real. Let it all out, tell us how u really feel!
Way to come strong Broadway!! Great points, sometimes you just have to corporate thug and get things off your chest. I am enjoying the work. Keep it going….
Good read as usual continue to be yourself very re-freshing.
Please explain again why you stereotype the tea party nation as racists. Are you including the entire group, or just the majority of those that happen to be melanin challenged?
Anyway, work’s been keeping me busy. Good to read you again after a few days away. 🙂
I will admit that I am making a huge generalization, but when Tom Tancredo gave his speech at the Tea Party Nation convention and talked about literacy test. The crowd supported his views on the type of people that voted for Obama.
Insightful and very well spoken. Bobby Broadway does it again. Oh and by the way after reading this if you call me a nutbag again, its your ass! Comprende? Bueno.
Let it all out Broadway… The world needs to hear what you got to say. I look forward to adding this blog to my daily reads and hearing your view points on a wide range of topics scanning the whole spectrum from Music, Pop Culture, Politics to Sports. Let it fly!!!
I can see how you could come to that conclusion. I don’t really know Tancredo so I won’t say either way. I would suggest you drop by a tea party protest (if it ever thaws out!) and see if you feel the same. Not to change your mind, but just to see for your self. If you treat them like you’ve treated me, I’m confident there will be no confrontation. While I’ve never been to one, I know some folks who’ve been. They seem like reasonable folks to me.
Anyway, thanks for the honest answer. 🙂 I truly appreciate it.
I appreciate the response, I will not say that ALL Tea Party folks are racist but in comparison to the Tea Party Patroits; the Tea Party Nation comes off as racist. I definitely would love to attend a Tea Party event. I look for moments like that, I will always show respect. If they do the same it could be good discussions
