Talkin' Shit: The Crack Emcee
The Crack Emcee speaks up on current events- from gay marriage to terrorism- and takes a turn trash-talking those cheese-eating French. (He's travelling back to France for an extended stay starting next week - editor)
"Crack Emcee to the Underground: ain't seen you 'round - are you out there, somewhere? And, if so, who dares speak? We on the streets to see,..."
from Hoin' For George by The Crack Emcee
Of course (on the ground) with their bread-wine-and-cheese lifestyle, the French weren't REALLY gettin' outraged by much, except for Arabs (and thinking they got an ever-declining quality in the bread-wine-and-cheese. Think about it: they got strikes, all the time, and everybody just TAKES it,...), so it didn't take long for my ever-wired American ass to itch for comin' back Stateside. Like James Baldwin, I knew what I didn't like about the U.S. - and France - and (damn it) I had to come "home".
Now comes the good part: what did I find when I returned? Well (along with DVDs of the first seasons of The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Bullshit - I ain't got cable) my beloved San Francisco was, finally, screaming like someone had slipped a real war under the door but, unfortunately - along with, still, not buyin' my album - those screams were much too fuckin' loud and much too fuckin' late to matter. And even worse, most of the time, I could see where committed Leftists (JUST like George W. Bush) let "activists" (JUST like Dick Cheney) help them argue for the wrong fuckin' shit (for instance, like, wasn't San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom supposed to turn into a Nazi when he got to power?). And, in wartime, I think that shit's just fuckin' sad.
"You said Abe Lincoln wanted slaves to be free? Liar! You said this country was 'sposed to matter to me! Liar!"

And why is the Left screamin' about Bush and the Christian Right wantin' to stop Gays from marrying? Big Fuckin' Deal. They also wanted the 10 Commandments placed in the courthouses. They didn't get it. And they won't get this either. There's already been cases in Texas and elsewhere, that prove the Christians can't win this, so why are y'all gettin' so fuckin' worked up about it? I'm an Athiest and I'm cool on it. They can't win. Can't you EVER laugh at 'em? After bein' Americans, for your entire fuckin' lives, have you no faith in anything? I'd feel dirty now - and I think, some of you should too - when you're 'sposed to be an intelligent person and you're walkin' around sayin', "You can't win a 'War On Terrorism' because terrorism is a tactic" - when you KNOW you're takin' the piss over words. The damn TITLE of the thing. That's just cheap.

And, especially, when nobody else cares to listen.
