Another great speech from our future president! I did a post about the sign of the times yesterday while Barack Obama was speaking on the same thing in Powder Springs, Georgia. We just vibe like that! Anyway…in his speech, Obama taked about this effed up economy and it’s effects on the American public. He touched on the unfair Bankruptcy laws that are written in benefit of creditors more so than the debtors [“Americans should pay what they owe…but we should be fair to the debtors as well as the creditors.”] and noted that most debtors are in that position because they got sick and couldn’t pay their bills…the result of little or no healthcare. I could go on and on about what’s in the video but I suggest you just watch it for yourself.
If the Coupes a rockin…don’t come a knockin! A woman has been charged with prostituting herself for gas. Yes…you read right. Times really are THAT bad! Her customer admitted to authorities that he paid for her services with a $100 Speedway gas card. Angela Eversole, 34, has been charged with prostitution and also charged with doing business without an occupational license. Her trick…I mean customer, Kenneth Nowak was charged with promoting prostitution. (Source)
Former Falcon Michael Vick filed for bankruptcy protection yesterday in Virginia and claims between $10 to $50 million in debt. (Peep the full document (.pdf) and calculate it for yourself!) One of his creditors is his former employer, the Atlanta Falcons, who he owes $3.75 million as a pro-rated signing bonus.
Of the six other creditors listed in the court documents three are banks, including two that recently won judgments against Vick. The largest creditor is Joel Enterprises, Inc. with a claim of $4.5 million. (Source)
Why did I think that he’d already filed bankruptcy? Anyway…I feel like all of you some-timey Falcon’s fans need to chip in and send Mike a few bills. After all…his birthday was just last week! Holla at your boi.
A Georgia Tech student has gained national media attention after placing an ad on craigslist seeking “a girl to teach [him] how to kiss.” The ad begins with “I’m a 20 year old GA Tech student who has never kissed…” and the poster, Michael McCarty is dead a*s serious about this mission! He needs the tutoring because he’s about to meet his ONLINE girlfriend of 5 years and she’s advised him that she dumped her last boyfriend becuase he didn’t know how to kiss. Both his mom and best friend have affirmed that McCarty has never kissed a girl anyone to their knowledge. This dude’s pathetic. Next up…teachers who post ads on eBay selling dental floss.
Usher Ramond IV and V graced the cover of Essence Magazine’s August 2008 issue. In this issue as in all the others Usher talks about fatherhood and addresses the rumors about his wife. Blah…Blah..Blah… what’s more interesting is that recently he has blamed is manager, Benny Medina, for the failure of his album, “Here I Stand.” Rumor has it that he also wants to re-hire his mother, Jonetta Patton, as his manager since he has realized she was key to his success. Usher ended his 15-year professional relationship with his mom and her JPat Record Label just days before Mother’s Day last year. In July, he told Vibe magazine, “(I paid my mother) the ultimate compliment – to retire her to be a full-time grandmother.” (Source)
