I hate Mondays…….shit is a pain to come to work….*yawns*
Damn ghost, u kind of lost. It’s Labor Day in the States, we aint doing shit (unless you work retail or something). I’m bout to roll up now, and will be wasted by 6pm. Barbecues starting at four (c) Fresh Prince
Damn I lost for real…..FUCK…..no wonder it’s so dead in here (no homo)
@ GWriter… Lol. I bagged 3 outta 5 I talked to. Of the 2 I didn’t bag, one of ’em goes to Howard and she’s from The Bay. She was madd cool though.
@ b-ease… I was here last night: http://www.levoyagedc.com/ The shorties in there were BAD! Me and the homies were in VIP. Apparently, one of my homies (who is a barber) knows this ninja from my high school who’s a big time hussler now and bought out the tables up there. And he was rollin’ with another ninja that went to my high school too. The crazy part is that he actually graduated from college. And yeah, I gotta co-sign that the baddest heffas in DC do be from all over and the majority of the time they attend Howard, i.e. the shorty from the Bay.

They runnin to be President of the USA
Who is the leader of the free world.
The “free world” is code for “western world”. Of which the US is the most powerful and intergal part. Pretty cut and dry.
When the US says jump, most of the countries within this realm answer with a variation of “how high?”. Sure, the president of the US doesnt have any say in what goes on in small town in Austraila. But if the US decides to go to war (just one example) Australia as a whole in invaribly affected. Therefore, the descisions the president of the United States makes do impact the rest of the western world from a leadership standpoint. It doesnt work the same the other way around. You may not like the idea or the implication but the US president is the de facto “leader of the free world”. It is what it is.
Every country in the G8 has the ability to change the world with a decision…And America aint even the most influential / powerful country in the G8 anymore. So I dont really get where you’re coming from
If thats how you’re lookin at it, then SAUDI ARABIA is the leader of the free world. They could pull alot more strings than the US or UK if they really wanted. Probably the US & UK combined

When was the last time this happened?
The Iraq War, with the exception of France. I see your point hto, and I’m not disagreeing with it, but I think you’re taking the term a little too literally. It’s more of a symbolic title, that, in all fairness, made a lot more sense before Dubya.
And America aint even the most influential / powerful country in the G8 anymore.
The G8 includes countries (Russia especially) that do not fall under the umbrella of what is genreally considered the “free (western) world”, so once again I see your point, but bringing in the G8 turns this into a completely different debate.
