It's hard being a Kool Aid sipping Barack Hussein Obama cheerleader these days.
Since February, BHO's ratings have slid sharply -- dropping 12 percentage points -- since Americans figured out that he is nothing but a jive talking snake oil salesman.
Tonight, Obama faces the toughest challenge of his 7-month presidency when he goes before the nation to push his lame duck health care reform bill that nobody wants.
Obama, a true narcissist in every sense of the word, has effectively shielded himself against the naysayers who predict his health care reform bull will not pass.
Obama is even ignoring members of his own Democratic party who oppose the bill because he thinks he is The One.
The public attitude toward Messiah Obama and Congress is reflected in the major polls which show that Americans disapprove of the way he is handling the economy.
Americans are tired of Obama ramming costly bills through Congress without bothering to read them first. They are also wary of Obama's empty promises and his outright lies.
Unemployment within the black community is at an all-time high. Obama's Porkulus spending bill didn't put a dent in the unemployment numbers nationally as he promised it would. In fact the numbers are fast approaching double digits for the first time in 3 decades!
Yet Obama wants members of the House to vote on a health care reform bill in 2 weeks that will certainly result in even more job losses.
I'm not feeling this style worn by NBA baller Carmelo and his boy, rapper Diego Cash at the Velvet Room this past Sunday.
I was told not to mention the words "suspect" or "How U doin" in regards to the old school culottes 'Melo is sportin'. I was also told not to go in on them for dressing alike right down to the faux diamond pendants. So I won't mention any of that.

Every now and then my loyal readers email me inquiring about where R&B Diva Monica purchases her vintage Porsche, Gucci and Burberry stunna shades.
In the past, I couldn't answer that question since Mo was so busy putting the finishing touches on her album. But yesterday, while out & about, I ambled into the ultra trendy Moda404 Men's Boutique on Pharr Road in Buckhead and ran into co-owner Kwessi (pictured above with Monica) who informed me that regular customers Monica, Devyne Stephens and Usher often cop their vintage shades at his boutique.
As a matter of fact, Monica recently visited Moda404 and snapped up the last pair of off-white vintage Burberry hater blocker shades that I wanted.
The prices range from $250-$1000 for these one-of-a-kind shades that are purchased in Italy and other far flung places around the world.
If you own a pair of vintage shades from Moda404, you are guaranteed not to see anyone else in the Atlanta wearing them!
Moda404 Men's Boutique is located at 254 Pharr Road, below the Eclipse condos in Buckhead. Store hours are Mon-Sat: 12pm to 10pm or Sunday by appointment only. Call (404) 869-3398 for more info.
Disclaimer: This is not a paid advertisement, nor did I receive compensation in the form of merchandise. I'm doing this for the love because me and Kwessi go way back!
According to Drew Reports, Akon has accepted his financial responsibilities for his son born to a sister of Ugandan fashion designer Sylvie Owori.
The mother, Susan Owori, whom Akon knocked up while on tour last year, apparently couldn't get in contact with the Senegalese singer to serve him with papers. So she did what any other self-respecting groupie who happened to get herself pregnant by a Superstar would do -- she sold her story to a tabloid.
“I think kids are a blessing,” said the currently married sex symbol. “[To set the record straight], I never ran away from my responsibilities and I never plan to. Everything I am doing now is for [my other five kids] anyway, so the more kids I can have, the better. I just love them.”
Beaming with pride, Akon said, "It’s a boy and he’s handsome as hell."
Footage of so-called "ballers" Jermaine Dupri, Nelly and troubled former NFL corner back Adam "Pacman" Jones making it rain in a Las Vegas strip club before the shooting that left 3 people injured.
The footage was filmed in 2007 at Minx Gentlemen's club during the NBA All-Star weekend. At one point you see the rapper Nelly wave off the cameraman as he holds 10 stacks in his hands.
Trouble broke out when overzealous dancers bent down to pick up some of the $40,00 in cash being thrown by Nelly and Pacman.
Former music mogul Dupri stopped the music and grabbed the mic to rebuke and reprimand the girls for picking up the money too soon. The reason for that is: some of the cheddar goes back to the so-called ballers and the club at the end of the night. The girls get to divvy up what's left over from the loot that was thrown -- but you're not supposed to know that.
The eventual shooting outside the strip club -- and the media avalanche that followed -- helped expose the truth behind the "making it rain" deception.
Bi-racial people are tired of being classified as black and they are speaking out in increasing numbers.
They believe it's absurd to recognize only half of their race and ignore the other race that makes them whole. I totally agree with them! It's time for bi-racial people to be classified as their own race. If a mixed breed dog can be identified as both breeds then a human being should not be one or the other.
Even bi-racial children are speaking out against this injustice. I love what the little boy says at the end, "If people don't like who you are, just find somebody who does."

Barack Hussein Obama campaigned for president on a shaky platform of Change. He promised to "hit the ground running" if elected president. He promised no taxes on the working class and relief for the millions of Americans who were losing their jobs and homes at record rates, yada yada yada...
So far, Obama has not made good on his promises -- including his promise to save or create 3 million jobs if his massive Porkulus spending bill was passed.
Despite the $787 billion stimulus bill, unemployment is fast approaching 10%. In Obama's 7 months in office he's managed to quadruple the national debt and has tried his best to undermine the economy of this great country by attempting to ram wasteful legislation through Congress.
It comes as no surprise that Obama is quickly losing support among his fellow Dems:
Could it be that President Barack Obama's Midas touch is starting to dull a bit, even among members of his own party?
Conservative House Democrats are balking at the cost and direction of Obama's top priority, an overhaul of the nation's health care system. A key Senate Democrat, Max Baucus of Montana, complains that Obama's opposition to paying for it with a tax on health benefits "is not helping us."
Another Democrat, Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, tells his local newspaper that Obama is too liberal and is "very unpopular" in his district.
From his first days in office, Obama's popularity helped him pass the landmark $787 billion stimulus package and fueled his ambitious plans to overhaul the nation's health care system and tackle global warming.
Obama continues to be comparatively popular. But now recent national surveys have shown a measurable drop in his job approval rating, even among Democrats. A CBS news survey out this week had his national approval rating at 57 percent, and his standing among Democrats down 10 percentage points since last month, from 92 percent to 82 percent.READ MORE...
According to Page Six, there was no body in the golden coffin at Michael Jackson's public memorial at the Staples Center last week.
"The coffin was empty. There was no body there at all," a source told Page Six.
Earlier that day, an insider emailed me to tell my loyal readers not to be fooled by the shenanigans going on in California. She said the casket was empty and that Jackson's body -- minus his brain -- was already in a crypt at a cemetery in L.A.
My source said the brain would be placed in the casket at a later date when it was released by the L.A. coroner's office. Despite denials by the Jackson family, my source's words rang true when, after the memorial, Jackson's "body" went missing sending paparazzi on a mad scramble around L.A. in search of his mortal remains.
She also told me, among other things, that AEG, the firm that booked Jackson to perform 50 concerts in London was also organizing the public memorial fiasco -- and they wanted the show to go on, body or no body. AEG originally planned to charge Jackson's fans a grip to attend the public memorial. But the Jackson family nixed those plans.
Maybe US Weekly didn't get the memo? In its current issue on stands now, the magazine is reporting that music mogul Jermaine Dupriu, 36, and pop icon Janet Jackson, 43, have split up after 7 years.
The mag quotes an inside source as saying the two have been "moving in different directions for a while."
Oh really? According to my sources, Janet and JD are still very much together. But if they have been moving in different directions for a while, what should we make of those paparazzi shots of the Superstar couple buying burgers and drinks just last week in Malibu, California? Body doubles?
Rumors of Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri going their separate ways have been swirling for months now. JD repeatedly denies the rumors on his Twitter page and in the local media. And still the rumors persist.
