Politics As Usual Pt. 2

I really hate politics! I hate the Republicans and I hate the Democrats. I want to chop the left and right wing off and leave the bird flightless!

You have Republicans who complain about the deficit but want to continue tax cuts that could put a dent into it. You have Democrats who instead of working toward the deficit, want to add to it by spending money.

You have a government who spends money on NASA explorations, when they should be investing in our future.

You have a Democratic mayor who wants to put a limit on the size slurpee that you can buy in New York. .

Are you kidding me??

I understand. The country is heading toward Obeseville, and I maybe the mayor of Obeseville, but that's no reason to limit the Slurpeeness of America. If the Government can tell me what size Slurpees I can buy, what's to stop them from telling me what kind of gas I can buy or what kind of blogs I can write, or what to believe in. I think Government is necessary, but let's not push it, Bloomberg!!!

Then you have the whole "Obamacare" issue. I don't really care about it. I haven't read the literature line by line, all I know is that a lot of people have their panties in a wad, and I dont understand the tangled undergarments. People without healthcare have been getting "free" healthcare through emergency rooms across the country for years, so to me nothing's going to change. If things change, then things are going to change. Whining about a new law, isn't going to get that law overturned. Now if you oppose Obamacare that much, then you have the opportunity to vote for Romney in November and he'll probably repeal Obamacare, unless the Powers That Be keep his pockets fat (Romneycare).

Now when it comes to the election in November. I don't know who I'm voting for. I'm not too impressed with Mr. Obama. The gas price and unemployment rate are way too high. I know he's done a lot. I saw those Obama road signs near construction zones all over the southeast. I know the auto industry needed a bailing and now the auto industry is doing well. I know the healthcare overhaul will benefit a lot of people. Some who genuinely need the help and not just looking for another hand out, and for that I am thankful.  Hats off to the President for those accomplishments. I wish Obama would've focused on improving the unemployment rate and these rising gas prices, but hey that's just me! When you have an opposing party who made it their goal to keep the president from being re-elected, you can expect some plans to be halted!! Which brings me back to my 1st post on this "Politics As Usual" series!


Parties only want things that benefit them, even if that means destroying the country! Enough is Enough! I feel like the white guy in Network!!

The Reasons Lebron James is A Sucka

Above is the Lebron James that I somewhat loved and very much respected!

1st a quick history lesson :

Lebron James was selected #1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 straight out of high school.

His rookie year was remarkable. He averaged 20 points. 5 Boards (rebounds). and 5 Dimes (assists) per game (imagine if he went to college for a couple of years)

After 2 seasons, he led the Cavaliers to the playoffs and was beaten in the 2nd round by the Detroit Pistons.
That offseason, he signed a 3 year contract extension with the Cavaliers, as well as Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh (Coincidence, I think not)

The following season, Lebron then led his team to the playoffs. In the Eastern Conference Championship, I realized how great Lebron James was. With the series tied 2-2, Lebron exploded in game 5 and dropped 48 on the Pistons scoring his team's last 29 of 30 points including the game winner. After that game, I knew he would be one of the greats, and he was my 2nd favorite player next to Kobe Bean Bryant!  That great performance against the Pistons only got him to the Finals to get swept by the Spurs.

The next season, he and Cavs got beat by the Celtics (what's going on E?) in one of the greatest 1-on-1 battles that I've seen with my own eyes live between Lebron and Paul Pierce.

The next season, he got beat by the Orlando Magic led by Dwight Howard (another sucka, unless he signs with the Lakers or Hawks #biased) in the conference finals.

The next and final season with the Cleveland Cavaliers is when Lebron James started his descent into suckaville! The Cavs made some good moves to get Lebron a good supporting cast, getting an old but still efficient Shaquille O'Neal (who averaged 12 points and 7 boards) and Antawn Jamison (who averaged 15 points and 8 boards). They already had Mo Williams who averaged 16 points and 5 dimes. For the 2nd year in a row, they led the Eastern Conference in wins and the world knew that Lebron would lead his team to the Finals, and this time win it all. When the playoffs started, they got past the Bulls with relative ease, but then the Celtics came to town, and according to the Dreek Theory of 2009, Lebron threw the series in order to have a good reason to leave Cleveland and link up with his homies in Miami like they had discussed  after the 2005-2006 season. In game 5, Lebron scored a measly 15 points, and in game 6, even though he had a triple double, he still looked bad shooting a low percentage and committing 9 turnovers. The Dreek Theory of 2009 states that Lebron is so good that he could get his stats and still throw the game away (YES! He's that good).

So the free agency hoopla commences and everyone is trying to figure out if Lebron is going to stay with Cleveland or go to New York or go to Dallas or whoever had the check book to pick him up. Never in a thousand years would I have thought that Lebron "The King" James would link up with a superstar in Dwayne Wade and a great big  man in Chris Bosh in Miami. I just didn't see it happening. I knew Lebron would follow the lead of all of the greats who stuck it out with their teams (Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Reggie Miller, Julius Erving) I thought Lebron would play the free agency system in order to force the Cleveland Cavaliers' Owner, Dan Gilbert, to get more talent in Cleveland with him but boy was I wrong.....

Cant you just sense the look on his face : 

"Boy, I really screwed up this time"

"Im going to get shot when I leave this gym"

"Man, my head looks 20 times bigger on camera"

So the DECISION was made. I appreciate the guy raising money for that particular Boys & Girls Club with the ad revenue raised from this debacle, because I went there as a kid, but let's keep it 100% This was a sucka move! Just make your decision, call Dan Gilbert, let him know the move, and let ESPN do their thing. We dont need you on TV looking like you just gave your mother a report card with all F's awaiting to get slapped in the face.

So the "teaming up" that Wade, Bosh, and James discussed years ago finally came into fruition. Instead of hitting the gym to work on chemistry or watch film of the top teams, they decided to pull a WWF stunt! 

The only time a team should be celebrating is after they win the championship. During this debacle, Lebron stated that the Miami Heat would win upwards to 7 championships. Seriously?? I will give the Heat 3 championships. The sad thing is, Lebron was capable of 3 championships with Cleveland. It took Michael Jordan 7 years to concoct a Championship caliber team. No linking up with Bird and Magic to win titles.I guess these young punks are too impatient and would rather ruin their legacy! 

Last season, the Heat did what they had to do to win a championship, even though they barely got by an old Celtic team. With the addition of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, a back to back championship wouldn't be out of the question, but 7 is very far-fetched, and with Lebron making this sucka move, you can expect more sucka moves to be made in the League like Dwight going to the Lakers or Derrick Rose going to the Knicks, Who knows??? These sucka moves will only make Lebron's quest to beat out Jordan for rings that much harder!

In conclusion, Lebron is a freak of nature. He's an over sized Rondo with a horrible hair line. If the Miami Heat don't win in the next two seasons, you can expect him to start demanding trades out of Miami, because he's a prostitute looking for the gold!

Guess Who's Back!!!!

Sorry for the wait! I decided to wipe the dust off of the keyboard to reintroduce my self and maybe initially introduce myself to some new readers! My name is Fatdreek! Its been around 60 days since I last blogged. Life is a highway at times. Some exits allowed me to blog more often than not. This highway had exits like church, work, Madden on Xbox, celebrating birthdays, graduations and weddings and other summer activities. I got a lot on my mind so you can expect blogs regarding the following topics (Lord willing)....

1. The Reasons Lebron James is A Sucka
2. Politics as Usual (Pt. 2)
3. Cover of A Book
4. My Vegas Vacation
5. Marital Mayhem

Just giving my faithfuls something to look forward to over the next few weeks. Thanks for all of the support and the questions regarding the blog.

God Bless!
