Yes We Can... and We Will...

This is it... Today is the day... Honestly a day that I really did not see coming in my lifetime, and that's such a fucked up thing to think but it was true. I don't think if you told me 4 years ago, "Son do not despair, this is far from the end... In a short time, only 4 years, a man will come around that many will not know at first but will come to embrace. As this man will have the gusto and gravitas to not only lift up your spirits and hope but those of an entire nation. This man will be a beacon in these bleak times ahead, but when this man has risen to the highest office in the land, you will finally be proud to be an American..."

This is the most memorable today of my young life, and I look forward to 4 years of progress and promise... A political flipping of the script as they say...

To quote the great African-American poet, Christopher Bridges, who's words I believe speak to people of all shapes and shade...

"You can't stop what's bout to happen, we bout to make history
The first black president is destined and it's meant to be...
The threats ain't fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
So get off your ass, black people, it's time to get out and vote!

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified
McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw 'em like candy wrap
'cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents

Get out and vote or the end will be near
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!
'cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!"

Well said old chum...

Now, if you have not voted yet, please turn off your computer and do so...
We will still be here, no worries.
