Doesn't matter what you're not wearing, you're never naked with a loaded machine pistol no.5 because it doesn't matter how cold it is out, you'll still have at least 9mm where it counts.

Tupac was TDS while he ODC so he probably needed ATR but he didn't KWO.

Don't apologise for the hiatus. We didn't really need another sarcasm-laced tale of QE2 and it's effects anyway.

"All hail, the pressure no endeavor can fail
Some missin souls turn to hoes when exposed to jail
In times of war we need somebody raw, rally the troops
like a Saint that we can trust to help to carry us through
Black Jesus, hahahahaha
He's like a Saint that we can trust to help to carry us through
Black Jesus"

"To this click I'm dedicated, criminal orientated
An Outlaw initiated, blazed and faded
Made for terror, major league ni**az pray together
bi**hes in they grave while my real ni**az play together
We die clutchin gla*ses, filled with liquor bomblastic
Creamated, last wishes ni**a smoke my ashes
High sigh why die wishin, hopin for possibilities
I'll mob on, why they copy me sloppily
Cops patrol projects, hatin the people livin in them
I was born an inmate, waitin to escape the prison
Went to church but don't understand it, they underhanded
God gave me these commandments, the world is scandalous
Blast til they holy high; baptize they evil minds
Wise, no longer blinded, watch me shine trick
Which one of y'all wanna feel the degrees?
bi**hes freeze facin Black Jesus"

Searchin for Black Jesus
It's hard, it's hard
We need help out here
So we searchins for Black Jesus
It's like a Saint, that we pray to in the ghetto, to get us through
Somebody that understand our pain
You know maybe not too perfect, you know
Somebody that hurt like we hurt
Somebody that smoke like we smoke
Drink like we drink
That understand where we coming from
That's who we pray to
We need help y'all

(lyrics from Black Jesus)

There is an absolute ton of messages in his music about empowerment and what is going on in the world today.  His music was prophetic.

You couldn't be further from the truth my friend.  Yeah Tupac was misguided growing up, who wasn't.  If people actually listened to his lyrics and understood the message in the majority of his music in the latter part of his life you would see how ignorant you are by writing what you wrote.  He talked about the illuminati and fearing computer chips long before Dan Brown plagerized Jordan Maxwell!  Tupac was feared by the music industry and ruling oligarchy make no mistake about it.  Lupe Fiasco's "Words I never Said" is about the only song from today's rappers that can compare to what Tupac was about.  RIP Tupac, todays youth need your music now more than ever!!!

Rap is "music"?! You're listening to the death of a Civilization. And I'm SURE the Jews running the recording industry were absolutely FEARFUL of all that $$$ Tupac put into their pockets.  You are beyond braindead.

I guess that's the beauty of an open internet.  Any racist, ig-nant bast'ed can post their opinions.  Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them.  Just a matter of picking thru the shit to find out what's worth reading.lol

Although I was lost in nostalgia, I believe the premise of the article was to make sure you have plenty good liquor and loaded belts for your mg-42. Things are going to get ugly soon enough.

OMG Just read the Finucane article!!!  So now I know!  Wait until the Dow hits 20,055 then sell like hell!  Great.  If I die before that happens, I will leave instructions for my daughter in my Last Will.

I guess I have to ask,  "When the hell do you bail out of a Bear market rally???????  How do you know when to pull the rip cord to avoid going down the  drain with the schmucks?"  I mean, how does an investor guage the depth of blind optimism in a flighty crowd of investor pigeons?  Sadly, when tops blow, they fall FAST!!!

Any advice on tell tales or signs to watch for?  Right now I am afraid of playing because I am afraid of whiplash when the blow-out happens.

It's a little bit like this. A whole lot of risk assets have been brought with some very cheap money. These boys are not stupid. They see the game has come to exhaustion so they make a market, a sucker rally, to sell the overpriced stocks into. They get out (thanks sucker) you buy in and the next day the market goes even lower. Rinse and repeat until you dispose of all the overpriced crap. Then, when they have you where they want you comes a bidless market crash.

Some a getting quite a wad together, ready to buy quality assets by selling an IPO of complete crap to the Cramer crowds. Not long now. bide your time

Really a long term investor is a trader who failed to get out when they could

"The effects were similar to drinking 4 wine-coolers very fast-- a crappy buzz that leaves you feeling violated with a headache soon after."

Wow, that brought back a bad memory.  Back in the day a friend and I slammed some California Coolers as fast as we could to quench our thirst and put a buzz on.  Yeah, we got a crappy buzz, but the belly ache was something I'll never forget.  Never had another wine cooler since then.

Your mind might be crystal clear, but this article is not.  T'was a bit manic.  And the point was, "the grass is brighter in future?"

Drunk...naked...in the mountains of Colorado at night (in the fall during hunting season when it gets pretty damn cold)...with a machine gun.

Any three of those together would probably be ok, but mix in all four and it's a deadly combination.  Take it from an experienced drunk, naked hunter from Colorado...don't try this at home kids!

Get your narrow Black ass to the store and grab your Moms a forty and two pack of smokes.

<pushing back tears of joy>  Reminds me of home as a child....<sliently weep..>


Come to think of it...I used to be given a note and money to run down to the store as a kid to pick up cigarettes.  Somehow I doubt anyone could get away with that now.

Yep. My mother used to do that too. The local corner store was owned and operated by the same family for 30 years and they knew my family well. 

So, I'd trot down to the Harris Hill Deli with 60 cents and a note from mom for a pack of Salem's. Since I was 10 years old, and I had 60 cents, the smokes were 45 cents, I'd get the smokes for mom and a candy bar for me. 

Now all the corner stores are corporate franchises and the employees neither know you nor give a shit about you. The smokes are 6 bucks, the candy bar a buck twenty-five, and the note is an instant ticket to a Child Protective Services investigation and hell of a lot of legal headaches.
