Severed Relationship

Published Wednesday, July 8, 2009

I use to have Kaiser as my healthcare provider.  While in their system I was allowed to have a pick of their litter of doctors
but each time I found one I liked, they would leave and then I would ultimately be forced to select another.  I went through
several doctors and each time, I was left with a pool to select another, then another, and yet another.  It was tough...

Who's To Blame For Another School Shooting?

Published in 2009

I shamefully admit that I might be just as sick and/or mentally ill as the monsters that have killed innocent people.  I have
never been declared insane however, and have never had a sanity test, but after this past weekend, perhaps I need to
consider having one or a lobotomy.  When Duane Morrison went into a Colorado High School, took several children hostage,
killed one  and then later, killed himself...

Our united states government officials Will Pass…

Published Thursday, July 23, 2009

I give no one a pass.  I don’t care the color of your skin or the position you may have, you will NEVER receive a pass or
any excuses for your actions from me.  NEVER! Not now, not ever!  President Barack Obama made a statement about
Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Mr. Gates’ arrest.  I’ve heard some say that Obama was in error when he said the
cops acted "stupidity."  I’ve heard from both Blacks and whites that Obama should have declined to answer the question.  
Me?  What do I say?  I say he answered the question and now so what? I don’t care!  So what?  Everyone says many
things that maybe they not ought to have said, but they’re still living; it’s life.  I don’t care, because it’s not an important
issue that I wish to address right now.  I care that Barack Obama reminded...

Alternatively

Published Monday, July 27, 2009

I was wrong.  Yes, I was wrong to say racism was not important at the time.  It IS important at all times.  Honestly, if not
now, when?  At the time, I wrote that it wasn’t important, I felt that the media and some of the american public were
feeding so much into what Barack Obama said about the police in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  I said it because I felt that
too many people were deviating away from the issue of healthcare; a problem that haunts too many americans; both Black
and white.  I said it because …now hold on.  At first, I was not sure of my stance between the prominent Black scholar,
Henry Louis Gates Jr. and arresting officer, Sgt. James Crowley.  I waited to give my perspective until I heard more of the
story.  Often times, we need to learn to keep our opinions to ourselves, as we must not miss a good opportunity...

The Democrats Get A Swift Kick...

Published Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Okay now, I asked myself what happened yesterday and I came up with a bunch of reasons/excuses and after reading the
article and listening to the news people, I have to say, I honestly don't know.  I was listening to the morning show and had a
hard time believing my ears when one of them said it was because not enough Black people voted.  It is so obvious that this
article proves what the morning show said.  They said that Blacks no longer felt engaged by Obama as if he no longer
speaks for and/or directly to them.  I found that unbelievable as first of all, it wasn’t the Black vote that got Obama into the
white house in the first place.  BUT (a BIG BUT) if that were the case – if Blacks actually felt ...

I salute our soldiers.
When the planes hit the towers, I was asleep.  At that time, we were avid Unfair Fowl News watchers, so while I’m

September 11, 2001, I opened my eyes.  I see what I believe is a coming attraction of serious action movie.  It is only
seconds when I learn that what I’m viewing is an attack on the Country in which I live.  The news report says...

President Barack Obama

I am hard on our politicians because supposedly, they work for me.  I say supposedly because some of those simpletons do
not work at all.  Anyway, I am hard on them without ever considering race or gender.  I do not discriminate.  If you’re
wrong, you’re wrong.  Some Black African Americans voted for Barack Obama because he’s Black.  Oh what a mistake.  
I did not.  I voted for Obama because he was the only viable person on the ticket.  I’m an avid voter.  It is always a

I have been an avid voter for the past 22-plus years.  Originally, I was not an Obama supporter nor was I rooting for Hillary,
however since Obama was the ONLY viable candidate, I gladly cast my vote [for him.]  I am an avid voter because my
parents couldn’t wait until I reached voting age to force me towards registration.  Although I continued to vote no matter

Michael Moore Replaces Rahm Emanuel

I understand you may be looking to replace Rahm Emanuel as your chief of staff.
I would like to humbly offer myself, yours truly, as his replacement.
I will come to D.C. and clean up the mess that's been created around you. I will work for $1 a year. I will help the Dems on
Capitol Hill find their spines and I will teach them how to nonviolently beat the Republicans to a pulp.
And I will help you get done what the American people sent you there to do. I don't need much, just a cot in the White
House basement will do.
Now, don't get too giddy with excitement over my offer, because you and I are going to be up at 5 in the morning, 7 days a
week and I am going to get you pumped up for battle every single day (see photo). Each morning you and I will do 100
jumping jacks and you will repeat after me:

Tax Day - 2010

Posted Thursday, April 15, 2010

Taxes have and always will benefit our government. That’s why it’s there; there’s no escaping it. Consequently, I have
always hated it and chances are, I always will. Other than going to jail, what can I do about it? Absolutely nothing. As the
old adage goes, two things are always a constant: death and taxes - no one can escape neither.  It seems with every tax
day, several idiots with a microphone jumps up and yell about increased taxes. As if all the commotion is going to change
anything.  Of course, I respect anyone for making their voice heard, but this year of tax day screamers are out of their
stupid minds. Yep, it’s the tea badgers; again! And yes, they want to blame...

Measuring the Movement was a 2-hour special regarding the Black community and its needs. Promoted by Al Sharpton and
hosted by Roland Martin and Tom Joyner.  It was a very interesting program and should be viewed and discussed among all
races.
I watched the two hour special of Al Sharpton’s “Measuring The Movement” conference on TV One.  Held at the First
Corinthian Baptist Church in New York City.  Although it was two hours long, I have to agree with radio host, Tom Joyner,
it was not long enough.  Those on the panel made some interesting comments and seemed alert and eager.  And although I
was intrigued the entire time, I could not help but wonder ...

Education - What's The Problem?

Created Monday, May 3, 2010
Posted Saturday, May 22, 2010

I have been trying to figure out this education thing for many years, but when the mass firing of teachers in Rhode Island
came along, I became more intrigued.
What is the problem?
What was the problem at Central Falls High School in Rhode Island that the superintendent felt justified in firing 93 people –
which included 77 teachers, the principal, 3 assistant principals, guidance counselors and reading specialists?
School officials yet say that of the 800 students at Central Falls High School in Rhode Island, half the students are failing
every subject, with 55 percent skilled in reading and 7 percent proficient in math.
Okay, that’s a huge problem!  But in general, what is the problem with our schools around the Country – in each State?  
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
What is the problem?
I have posed this question to several family members, friends and associates and I have received a variety of answers.
I posed the question because as long as I can remember, our government has always emphasized how important education
is, yet it seems as though each administration fails to make it better.  Or better yet, to prove to at least me, that they
are doing something to improve our education system.  What is the problem?  Why hasn’t our government done more?

First Presidential Debate, 2012

Posted Monday, October 8, 2012
Edited Wednesday, October 10, 2012

First of all, I did not watch the entire debate when it aired, however it was on here in my office, and with the television
behind me, I often took short glances to see what the candidates looked like.  To me, former Massachusetts' governor Mitt
Romney seemed rested and prepared while President Barack Obama appeared tired and sleepy.  I thought he must have
needed some rest.
In my opinion, President Obama messed up during the debate.  Sure his numbers remained the same, but Romney took
some potential numbers Obama could have gained. ...a massive win to reelection.  (I like winning big.)  Additionally, Obama
allowed the Republicans to capture the ears of easy prey.  Again, at this time, I am assuming Romney's number increased
because people had not been listening to him while he was on his campaign trail.

however, I am not so sure why.  Perhaps they think it is cool, as they have been in the presence of their Black friends

sense does that make since no president has ever had the power to do anything?  Not one president!  So why only vote
for them?

Congress has and will ALWAYS have the power.  Of course, that could or would change IF Congress voted against not
having the power, but that would mean they would vote to take away the power from themselves, and commonsense tells
you that they would NEVER do that!  Vote against yourself so that you no longer have power?!  NEVER!  So,...

What Does Your Heart Say?

Sunday, September 28, 2014

While I was watching it occurred to me how many times women have dated and/or married men who are not as
educated or established.  Sometimes our female friends will insist that we date better men.  Translation: men that are
more qualified.  Men that are more suited to our level of education/accomplishment.

Family and even our coworkers will tell us how we can choose better and date better qualified men.  I have often said
that the heart wants what it wants.  But still many times women are made to feel as though we have let ourselves down
for picking the man we want to have by our side.  We give in to our family, our BFF's and coworkers.  This causes
friction within...

Who Cares, Let's Just Have Tepid Sex...?

I thought we would lose some seats yesterday, but I had no idea it would be a bloodbath.

Today, President Obama's people emailed this message: "
As we make progress, I'll need your help, too. Over the
weeks and months ahead, I'll be looking to Americans like you, asking you to stay engaged.
"

Well, I do not know how to say this, but...

Fifty years later, and we are still fighting for our right to vote.  We have the legal right to do so but Section 4 of the Voting

Acceptance

I had a co-worker once that made it her goal to be rid of every piece of paper on her desk by the close of business every
Friday.  She would smile and say, "
Now, I am ready for Monday!"  I am thinking about her now as I do every January
1st, and I am wondering what is the point?

Republicans Are Unhealthy For America

Iran ALREADY has a nuclear weapons program so Netanyahu's speech and travel was all for not.  Again, the audacity
of Netanyahu and Republicans!  If either were paying attention, they would have known that Iran crossed the "red line"
over twenty years ago.  Iran's ability to produce bombs increased in the early 1990's and over the years past...

It was presented to Jefferson Davis at a rally to support his presidential bid for the confederate states.  Whatever the

Bernie Sanders

Thursday, July 30, 2015

While some criticize Senator Bernie Sanders for referring to himself as a socialist, the entire United States of America is
socialist Country and it started in the early 19th Century.

Oh but Bernie does not call himself a socialist as some people ascribe. Instead, he deems himself, as do I, a "Democratic
Socialist, instead…

It is obvious that the mainstream media agrees with the Denver National Committee about taking turns in being president,
so they, (the mainstream media) has decided that Bernie Sanders did not deserve much coverage.  Well that is not fair, as
the people deserve to hear from each candidate.
For all those that do not know but want to know about Bernie Sanders, this is for you...
