Osama Gone.

I'm dead.

I had intended to write a whole other post and then I happened to look at Twitter. And all of a sudden I see ninjas talking about Osama Bin Laden being dead.


I stopped EVERYTHING I was doing and immediately turned to CNN and here goes Wolf Blitzer (I swear, if ANYTHING goes down Wolf is involved) and some other white guy I know but can’t name talking about the death of Osama Bin Laden.

It’s an oddly weird feeling to hear this news. It’s been nearly 10 years since 9/11. At this point Bin Laden was just one of those names that’s become part of the American consciousness. For a long time his name caused venom but over time, and much like anything else, he just kind of became part of the culture. Apple pie. New Yorkers. Osama Bin Laden. I think for most of us, we kind of assumed he’s either been dead or quit life altogether and just holed up in some cave somewhere.

It’s kind of like the terror warnings and levels. They mean nothing at this point. They just exist somewhere out there but most of us keep going on about our lives. To some degree it even seems like al-Qaeda had taken a break as they definitely hit a terrorist lull (I’m fully aware that many terrorists acts have occurred around the world and continue to to do so with fervor, but al-Qaeda hasn’t seemed as active) which is either a testament to our foreign ops or a reminder that some of these cats are REALLY trying to take their time planning more attacks. I don’t know, and I think that’s the point. You just never know.

But if its true, the world just took an interesting turn. First and foremost, Obama just got his trump card. Pun intended.

But more importantly, my guess is that Bin Laden just became more of a martyr than he’s already been. And I can’t imagine what kind of retaliations might happen to our troops and any Americans abroad. I’m actually worried about this. The Taliban will either go the short game, immediate action and reaction and death to infidels route or pretend its not true and make sure they hit the airwaves to say that America is lying.

I’m wondering what affect this will have on the world. More suicide bombings? Forgive my lack of focus and clarity but this is just some odd news. It’s world news and world history. It’s a significant part of the fabric of American society. 9/11 has significantly impacted the lives of everybody in the world.

It means something.

And I think it will from here too. If terrorists didn’t have motivation to go out and do commit more intense crimes, they have it now. I feel like the CIA is about to be on their highest alert ever. And we kind of need them to be. Who knows whats about to go down?

Now that we got all of that out of the way….on a slightly more ignant note…I kind of wonder if Obama is giving folks the pound or dappin’ ninjas behind the scenes? Obama is about to be on his Mr. Big D*ck game for a while now. In fact, if I was him, I’d go straight to the GOP and be like, “yo, whatever I want for the next two years,  you all might as well make it happen. I got Bin Laden. Did you? No. You didn’t. So what if I didn’t do it myself. I proved I’m American, b*tched Trump in front of  him AND snagged the world’s public enemy #1 within the span of 4 days. Get like me. They’re about to rename the “dougie” the “obamie”. Oh, and I am about to require American’s to learn the Electric Slide. What?!!! Balance the budget b*tch.”

Sorry. I just had a ninja moment.


So, what’s your perspective on all of this?

Oh, and how much you want to bet Osama died with a “Stop Snitching” tshirt on?

Shake something.

By the way, I love how Obama said, “I did this. Me, n***a. I George Bushed da button. What?!”

Panama Jackson is pretty fly for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future.

    “guess is that Bin Laden just became more of a martyr than he’s already been. And I can’t imagine what kind of retaliations might happen to our troops and any Americans abroad.”

      Along the same lines, the comedic side of me was hoping to hear LL’s “I Shot Ya” remix as the president left the podium. I’d have settled for Biggie’s “Who Shot Ya”.

      Now watch someone make a YouTube video like that.

        in similar fashion, i kind of hoped Obama had walked to that podium with lil scrappy “no problems” playing in the background. that would have been dope.

            I think during the second term, we will see this type of behavior.

          • Andi

            I wish he was holding a mic so he could have pulled the illest sexual chocolate move after he finished the pledge of allegiance. His pimp turn to exit will suffice though.

        • miss t-lee

          Actually in my mind Snoop’s “B*tch Please” would’ve worked as well.

    • Nola Darling

      Love this post. Sums up how I feel to a tee.

      “VSB P aka THE ARSONIST aka OBAMA IS MY COUSIN aka OBAMA GONE, THAT NINJA DEAD aka GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL, HE GOT OBAMA” <—-Is there a typo in here? I'm tired but this looks wrong.

      • kaname

        @Nola Darling – you’re right, that is wrong. Please fix PJ or else I suspect that you’re pulling a Fox News on us >_>


        • bumilla

          liz, can you help PJ with this edit?

          • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

            i fixed it. i wrote this joint while Obama was speaking so forgive the mental flub.

            • bumilla

    • Shelby

      Hells yeah. In fact, I had planned a Mediterranean cruise for the summer…cancelled that bish.

      The radicals and his followers will be avenging his death…

        Absolutely. When they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction ~ Bible

      • Squeak

        U might as well keep the cruise poppin. U know Dave Chappelle said, they don’t take black hostages. It gives them no leverage.

      I said the same thing last night. They go way to hard in the middle east not to retaliate.

  • NinaFontaine

    If its true ……………. i’m praying for us – this dude had martyrs all over the world willing to die for the cause and we have to be certain that they were prepared for this day.

    On a lighter note – Obama is GANGSTA for this one! He was able to do what 3 presidents couldn’t.

    Ehh, the interesting stuff isn’t going to happen until weeks and months down the round until when we have a clearer picture of how specifically Pakistan responds to this and the Arab world at large. Ideally people would be more interested in the long term affects, but they’re not. But shoot, at least I get to start random U.S.A. chants tomorrow and the police are going to be all friendly. Wait nevermind, my name is Malik, I’m going to get to JFK security treatment for the next 2 weeks telling any ’25/20s’ my name.
