Wake up
Gonna wake up to nothing
Break up
The break up is coming
When you're heart is hollow
Another pill to swallow
Shake up
Got to shake up you're freezing
Make up
I'm gonna make up my reasons
I used to say I need you
But I gotta leave you
[Chorus]
Sister, sister what did they do to you
Sister, sister what did they do to you
Did they take and try to break

A heart that long
It's so wrong
Hung up
Got me hung up in draft
Rung up
Got me rung up in bed
You took that handy job
The one who showed you love
[Chorus]
Sister, sister what did they do to you
Sister, sister what did they do to you
Did they take and try to break
A heart that long
It's so wrong
So wrong
So long
[The Black Keys - Sister Lyrics]

    Let me say first that i have a healthy rpceest for those in our midst that swim against the current. I think that i can fairly say that that's what a black conservative is. And a black woman conservative--you're practically in a class all your own. You say that obama has "extremely liberal views. " would his views be more palatable if he merely had "liberal views"? I'm not trying to be contentious, just sincerely interested in your point of view. A democrat, by definition, is a "liberal," just as a republican, by definition is a "conservative. "i know: there are various shades within those categories. Of late, many white conservatives have elected to endorse obama--and they're neither black nor liberal. I believe that it's the palin factor that is the primary reason why c. Powell endorsed obama, despite his stated rpceest for her. Also, i believe that powell rpceests a woman's right to choose, and is concerned that the next president will have the opportunity to nominate a couple more supreme court associate justices and, if that president is a republican, it would tip the balance towards a conservative majority, potentially threatening the existence of roe v. Wade. Truthfully, palin, in my opinion, is not up to the task of filling presidential shoes should some calamity befall mccain. And that his slogan is country first is all the more ironic that he selected palin to be a heart attack away from the seat of presidential power. Clearly his decision was political first and country last. Again, i rpceest your ideology, although i find it flawed, and i, as do many other blacks, find the term, black conservative, to be paradoxical and inexplicable. I will return to read up on your evolving conservative views of your world. But i probably won't attempt to change your conservative outlook. That would be inexcusably presumptuous of me. You see, i don't necessarily feel a liberal point of view is superior to a conservative point of view, or vice versa. It is what it is. I see the world more in light of what works or doesn't work, given what it is we say we want. For me, at this moment, in light of what i say i want, the liberal view works better.
