I Ain't Goin' Nowhere....
No, I don't mean that in the "you haters can't take me down" type way...I mean literally, I ain't going nowhere. Have you seen these crazy ass gas prices??? Of course you have. This is some bullshit. I like to go out, but damn, living in Decatur, unless I'm hitting up Chit Chat or Scores or something, shit is really a hassle. At the top of the year it only cost me about $40 to fill up. Now, that shit up damn near $20. Shit, these clubs and other spots need to start coming down off their admission and drink prices just to show appreciation to muthafuckas spending that much money just to get there. I mean, one of the good things about living in Atlanta and the South period was that you didn't have to catch a cab to get around. But now, you might as well. Everytime you hop in your car its like you're spending a dollar a mile to get to wherever you're going.
Another reason I'm not going out anymore is because of this crazy ass gun bill the State of Georgia just passed. Governor Sonny Purdue powered through a bill making it A-O-K to pack heat at the park, in restaurants that serve liquor as well on public transportation vehicles. Meaning, that you can tote your pistol where you damn well please as well as you got a permit.
He and the other people that voted on this bill feel that tragedies such as school shootings can be prevented if everyone is armed at all times.
I'm kinda back and forth on guns. One part of me says that we all should have the right to have guns as long as the police have guns, we have the right to defend ourselves from them. The other side of me feels that the best way to cut back on violence is to eliminate guns altogether. I mean, as long as they are on the street, people are going to keep shooting them.
So, knowing that gas prices are outrageous and that niggas gonna be having guns up in the club give me absolutely incentive to go out. That kinda sucks, my birthday is on Friday.
What do you think?
