    That was one of the funniest things I’ve read in a long, long time. What the f*** is a Barack, anyway?

  2. DMX is an idiot that does not understand nor have a grasp of his own surrounding. I do not think he represents the whole of rappers out there. DMX is just a crack head rambling on.

  3. “What the f*** is a Barack, anyway?”

    Barack is a Jewish name Mr. ignorant rapper LOL

  4. Barack is a Jewish name Mr. ignorant rapper LOL

    No it isn’t, Twosret.

  5. The name Barrack is African and also its from the Hebrew name Baruch

  6. Captin Obvious,

    Thank you sir :)

  7. Barry will not win the nomination.

  8. Didn’t they say that about the Maverick?

  9. The name Barrack is African and also its from the Hebrew name Baruch

    Well, for one thing, his name isn’t “Barrack” anyway. His name is Barack. For another, Twosret said it was “Jewish” – she meant Hebrew, obviously. But she’d still have been wrong.

    Barack Obama, a U.S. politician whose first name is derived from the Kiswahili word, baraka meaning blessed.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barakah

    Barakah (Arabic: بركة : also known as Baraka) is an Arabic term meaning spiritual wisdom and blessing transmitted from God (Arabic: Allah) to any creature that God wishes to bestow it upon. It is also described as “the greater good” derived from any act. In order to bring as much Barakah as possible into one’s life, a Muslim should try to come closer to God by doing good deeds, praying/worshipping, helping others, and trying to follow God’s commandments. He should also try to develop a close and personal relationship with God by remembering Him, knowing Him, and calling upon Him in his everyday life in the way that was taught by Muhammad through the many prayers and invocations.

    Barakah is also the origin of U.S. politician Barack Obama’s first name via Swahili which has been heavily influenced by Arabic.

    Here is the Hebrew version:

    n Judaism, a berakhah or bracha (Hebrew: ברכה; plural ברכות, berakhot; related to the word “Baruch”) is a blessing, usually recited at a specific moment during a ceremony or other activity. Berakhot typically start with the words Barukh attah, Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha-olam, … (“Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the universe, …”).

    No reference to Barack Obama here. Given that Obama’s Father was a Muslim, I’ll leave it to you guys to argue about which version of the word his name is based on. Arabs have been in that part of Africa for thousands of years. As far as I know, Jews haven’t been. Irregardless, both versions (since they are nearly identical, including in definition) are undoubtedly based on an Aramaic word. That’s seems to be universally true when a word exists in both Hebrew and Arabic.

  10. Forgot the link to the Hebrew version:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berakhah

  11. 54% of Iraqis say their life is good in the latest ABC/BBC poll. Does anyone know what percentage of Egyptians think their life is good?

  12. Many muslims all over the arab world name their children Ibrahim, Ismail, Baraka, etc….. they are all names from the old testement, semitic, hebrew, Jewish whatever they are. They might spell it a bit different.

  13. “Irregardless” isn’t a word. At least in the sense that it isn’t a proper word, it probably crept into conversational language as a blend of irrespective and regardless.

    “Since the prefix ir- means ‘not’ (as it does with irrespective), and the suffix -less means ‘without,’ irregardless is a double negative.”

    I think what you meant to say was, regardless. That makes more sense.

    tedders,

    “irregardless” has been a major pet peeve of mine for some time.

    That and confusion between “less” and “fewer”

    And all the inappropriate use of apostrophe’s.

    And people who use multiple exclamation points!!!!
