1...2...123 YEAH
Underground thunder pounds
When I stomp the ground
Like a million elephants
or silver-back orangutans
You can't stop the train

Who want some?
Don't come unprepared
I'll be there
But when I leave there

Better be a household name
Weatherman tellin' us it ain't gon rain
So now we sittin' in a drop-top
Soakin' wet
In a silk suit tryin' not to sweat
Hit somersaults without the net
will this be the year that we won't forget

Anno domini
Anything goes
Be what you wanna be
Long as you know
Consequences are given for livin'
The fence is

Too high to jump in jail
Too low to dig you might just touch hell

Get a life now they on sale
Then I might catch you a spell
Look at what came in the mail

A scale and some Arm and Hammer
Soul gold grill and a baby mamma
Black Cadillac and a pack of Pampers
Stack of questions with no answers

Cure for cancer
Cure for aids
Make a nigga wanna stay on tour for days
Get back home
Things are wrong
Well not really it was bad all along

Before you left adds up to a ball of power
Thoughts at a thousand miles per hour
Hello ghetto let your brain breathe
Believe there's always more

Don't pull that thang out
Unless you plan to bang
Don't even bang
Unless you plan to hit something

Uno, dos, tres, it's on
Did you ever think a pimp
Rock a microphone
Like that there boy
And we still stay street
Big things happen every time we meet

Like a track team, crack fiend
Tryin' to geek
Outkast bumpin' up and down the street
Slant back Cadillac about five niggas deep
Seventy-five MCs
Free-stylin' to the beat

Cause we get crunk, stay drunk at the club
Should've bought an ounce
But you copped a dub
Should've held back
But you throwed the punch
Supposed to meet your girl
But you packed the lunch

No D to the U to the G for you
Got a son on the way by the name of Bamboo
Gotta little baby girl four years Jordan
Never turned my back on my kids, there for them

Should've hit it, quit it, rag top
Before you RE up, get a laptop
Make business for yourself boy
Set some goals
Make a fat diamond
Out of dusty coals
Records number four, but we on the road

Hold up, slow up, stop, control
Like Janet, Planet Stankonia's on ya
Moving like Floyd comin' straight to Florida
Lock all the windows
Then block the corridors
Pullin' off my belt cuz a whipping's in order
I like a three-piece fish
Before I cut your daughter
Yo quiero Taco Bell then I hit the border

Pity pat rappers
Trying to get the five
I'm a microphone fiend
Tryin' to stay alive
When you come to ATL
Boy you better not hide
Cause the dungeon family
Gon' ride, HIGH!

Don't pull that thang out
Unless you plan to bang

White lives are valued too much over others.
CONTINUED: The only real alternatives, Jill Stein and maybe big-talking-nothing-doing Bernie, the mainstream media would not allow the public to so much as contemplate as actual options. And it's not like our population can think for itself nowadays without a media assist. So it's all working out, roughly and crudely and painfully, but working out.

What happened in Boston?
Long live Hitler and Trump!
A big fizzle out for Nazis, white supremacists, Bannon Breitbart types, white nationalists, fascists, Christian domestic terrorists, frat boys, the KKK, and alt-right khaki wearers! But who did turn out to face down the 100 or so extremist-racists? Thousands upon thousands of Americans who treasure unity in diversity, a triumph of cooperation over fear and division. United we stand against racism.

Do women RAPE children?

Foxnews.com; Crystal Quintero, Seth Auberon, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

I won't tell because I won't remember till later.
A Wisconsin woman put sleeping pills in a boy's Slushie before sexually assaulting him earlier this month, police said.

Tara Gotovnik, 25, [an alleged white female rapist] was arrested and charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child and delivery of a controlled substance, FOX6 reported.
The 10-year-old boy's father reported the alleged sexual assault to police on Aug. 7, the criminal complaint stated.

The boy told investigators he started getting double vision and his speech became slurred after Gotovnik allegedly placed the sleeping pills in his drink.
She then sexually assaulted him while he was impaired, the boy said, adding that Gotovnik previously said the pair could "go online and make money for doing it." More

    Indigenous dawn of San Gabriel Mountains, LA

    From modern city, the San Gabriels look like this. From up there, they look like that:

    The brilliant heritage of the San Gabriel Mountains above Los Angeles is largely unknown to millions of Southern Californians.

    Etching a captivating relief into the horizons of LA each morning, they chart a rousing history that enriches the region's collective identity.

    Far from a mere geological backdrop, these omnipresent mountains have fostered, threatened, and inspired generations of civilizations that have taken root in greater LA.

    The historical and cultural impact of the San Gabriels on one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world is astonishing, yet few have heard their stories.

    One of the earliest indigenous people believed that the first chapter of the San Gabriel Mountains began on the highest summit in the range, Mount San Antonio, more commonly known as Mount Baldy.

    In the creation legend of Mount San Antonio, published in George Hazen Shinn's Shoshonean Days, John Morongo, son of a Yuhaviatam leader in Morongo Valley, recounts a time when, "There was nothing; all was darkness."

    Then two quarrelsome brother deities, Sea-god and Land-god, worked together to beget land, sea, and animals. The brothers fell into discord, however, over their opposing visions for man's form.

    The disagreement turned disastrous when Land-god decided to create man to his liking, while Sea-god was away:

    An ancient footpath once led into the sylvan heights of Little Santa Anita Canyon via the West Fork of San Gabriel Canyon en route to Mount Wilson (Daniel Medina).
    It was believed that Land-god, from his position at the apex of Mount San Antonio, sculpted these ramparts that thwarted Sea-god. Around the same mountain, according to another legend, the Yuhaviatam people (called the Serranos by the Spanish invaders) came to settle, after following a "pure white eagle, the bird of their great Captain Kukitatc, (Land-god)" from the north.

    The symbolic peak of Mount San Antonio marked an approximate boundary between Yuhaviatam territory, which primarily occupied the eastern end of the San Gabriels, and parts of the San Bernardino Mountains, and the expansive realm of the Tongva (called the Gabrielenos by the Spaniards) to the west.

    Mount San Antonio was also of vital importance to the thriving Tongva communities in the lowlands of the San Gabriel Valley.

    One of the largest permanent villages, Asuksangna, was established near the gaping drainage of the San Gabriels' largest watershed, which collected the generous snow melt of Mount San Antonio.

    In the looming shadow of the mountain, the San Gabriel River was born, and was the lifeblood of Asuksangna and other villages that dotted the valley south to the sea.

    On a rise just south of San Gabriel Canyon, the thatched huts of Asuksangna, known as a kizh (keech), stood firm above the river, subject to extensive winter flooding in the wet winter months.

    As spring warmed the foothills and mountain flora ripened, the Tongva would prepare to make their seasonal ascent, up ancient mountain footpaths, into cooler climates to construct summer and autumn camps.

    The purpose of these seasonal migrations was crucial: to obtain enough food and material to ensure a sustainable, and ultimately survivable, winter down in the valley.

    In the highlands, as well as below, the elements of nature -- from granite boulders to acorns -- were considered sensate [with feelings, able to sense]. All was kin to the human community.

    Out of respect for these relations, hunting and gathering expeditions were always performed in moderation, taking only what was needed. On the game trails, men tracked animals in the thick maze of chaparral.

    Hunters preyed on bounding deer and rabbits, with arrow shafts fashioned from greasewood. Below in the San Gabriel River, fishermen hauled in steelhead trout, using nets woven with fibers from the towering yucca plants.
    As the primary plant harvesters and processors, women played a pivotal role in the survival of their people. More than half of the average diet was comprised of vascular plants.

    Women applied their honed ethnobotany skills to meet this demand, by scouring the parched chaparral slopes and canyon duff for major dietary staples. Stiff shrubs yielded precious mountain cherries and chia seeds.

    Berries from the burgundy trunk of the indispensable manzanita were plucked to brew a sweet cider. Acorns, known as kwi, were collected in tightly woven baskets by women and children and ground to meal in granite mortar holes that can still be found today.
    Great care was taken to manage this sustainable ecosystem. Fires were often deliberately set on elevated shrub lands to promote advantageous growth.

    A common practice in California tribes, conflagrations would enhance the density of specific edible plant communities, increase the food supply for animals, and support the development of material used in construction and medicine.

    In addition to guiding their ecosystem, the Tongva managed their economy by blazing well-worn trade routes into the mountains to barter with local tribes.

    The people of Asuksangna followed a route that led up the West Fork of San Gabriel Canyon and scaled the mountains.

    A complex system of footpaths led to major landmarks, like Mount Wilson, Red Box Saddle, Millard Canyon, and the camps of the Chilao back country.

    These gathering sites set the stage not only for an exchange of goods, but also functioned as a place to swap songs, gossip, embrace distant family, and meet youth from other mountain areas.

    Few groups continued north as well, crossing the entire transverse range and dropping into the blazing sands of the Mojave Desert.
    The prosperity of Asuksangna would meet an ineluctable fate, however, when Mission San Gabriel laid its foundations a few miles downriver in 1775.

    An empire of Spanish colonists would deliver destructive change to a society, that for so long thrived below the nourishing sanctuary of Mount San Antonio [modern Mt. Baldy].

    Comedy with comedian Dick Gregory (video)

    Comedian Dick Gregory, Host Amy Goodman (DemocracyNow.org, Aug. 21, 2017); Ashley Wells, Dhr. Seven, Seth Auberon, CC Liu, (eds), Wisdom Quarterly

    Dick Gregory in his own words: Remembering the pioneering comedian and civil rights activist
    I don't like this black guy, troublemaker.
    In a special broadcast today, Democracy Now! remembers legendary black comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory, who passed away this past Saturday in Washington, D.C. at the age of 84.
    • Dick Gregory was a pioneering comedian and civil rights activist who passed away on Aug. 19, 2017, age 84.
    Democracy Now! Host Amy Goodman
    Gregory became one of the most popular comedians in the country, paving the way for generations of African-American comedians. On Sunday Chris Rock wrote on Instagram:

    "We lost a king. They’ll never be another. Read his books. Look him up you won’t be disappointed. Unfortunately the America that produced Dick Gregory still exists."

    Dick Gregory was the first African-American comedian to sit on the couch of The Tonight Show, then hosted by Jack Parr [before Johnny Carson got the job]. As his popularity grew, so did his activism.

    ARCHIVES: Dick Gregory LIVE in 2002
    In 1967, Dick Gregory ran for mayor of Chicago against the infamous Richard Daley. He was a close friend of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and in 1968 he ran for president against Richard Nixon.

    Dr. Greg Carr, chair of Afro-American Studies at Howard University and a friend of Gregory, described him as a perpetual student. “His intellectual capacity was honed to precision with a lifetime of deep study,” Carr told Diverse Magazine.

    Democracy Now! features Dick Gregory in his own words in a 2002 interview with the comedian in DN's old firehouse studio. He was first interviewed just months after Democracy Now! went on television. More + Transcript
