President Obama fast aging

President Obama may have known intellectually how hard being the President of the United States was,but noting teachs a person like  hands on experience.I watch him at his press conference a few days ago while explaining the lastest news on the terrorist plot stopped in Detroit last week.I was shocked to see how much he has aged in less then a year.Your thoughts are welcome.

Listening with a third eye and ear

When President Obama was running for the office he now holds,how many of us were hearing and seeing with a third ear and eye? Not many is my guess,because the complaints and job approval rating for President Obama has plunged.Even in the Black community where Obama never showed up during his campaigning for office I see and hear loud chants of disapproval for the job he has done for our community.
Folks here is where that third eye and ear come into play,did you every asked your self why President Obama never held a rally in the straightup hood?Did you ever question why his wife was not with him on the campaign bus and plane? Now is the the time to ask yourself some tough questions,not the next election for President in 2012.

What the health care bill means

Sicko (Special Edition)Without the public opition the health  care bill approved by the U.S.Senate this past weekend amounts to a joke for the average person out here.
One of the purpose of the public opition was to give incentive to the insurance industry to lower their prices and offer better health plans to the consumer.
I often wonder if the people in Washington who create these laws even feel just a little of the pain of the average joe and jane lunchbucket.
Do they ever feel the pain of not having the resources to pay the medical expenses of a sick child?
I wonder if the average congressperson or senator was to ever be without medical insurance would they then change their tune and then pass some real reform!

Unconditional love and forgiveness

Unconditional Love and ForgivenessI got this ideal to talk about unconditional love and forgiveness from a poster to Field Negro blogspot this morning.( It's a worthy goal  to shoot  for but how practical is this in 2009? What do you think?No Repentance No God Loves You, But is His Forgiveness Unconditional?

Christmas Just Ain't Christmas

Church Mouse of Saint NicholasI remember Christmas when I was a child,it was fun and exciting even though my family was poor as a church mouse money wise.But we were rich in the small things of this life ,we were loved deeply.So now we enter the last week of "shopping" for Christmas  and I'm still not feeling Christ like about 12/25/2009.
Could it be I have been slammed with so many ideals and commericals that I have forgotten what Christmas  is suppose be ?

No Health Care Bill

So where is the health care reform that President Obama promise the American people last year during his run for office?
My guess is reality has finially has set in with people like myself,who now understand that President Obama is just a politican,with a slicker message for the masses.
I still love him for what he was able to accomplish by making it to the White House,but as far as "change" that's not going to happen.

Mental Health And Black Folks

I just don't know what's it going to take for the Black Community to wake up and smell the coffee in regards to mental health issues in our community.
Have anyone ever given to thought as to why so many of us need to find an outlet such as drugs and alcohol?
The pain of my childhood could only be tamed by the glup of a Colt 45 and a shot of Rum,there was really no where else I could turn to get a understanding of what was happening to me.
I won't blame my parents for that pain because,lord knows the issues they had to deal with raising six children in the 1950-60's wasn't a easy one.
I often use their persaverance as a benchmark when things get a little rough now days.

Judging Tiger Woods

I was reading the blogspot of my friend rippa( last night and I think some of the things he was saying about the Tiger Woods drama was spot on. Rippa never let's a reader misunderstands his point of view.
So my friend Carey chimes in to bring rippa back down to earth.
All which goes to show the powerful communication going on in parts of our community.
Carey makes some good points in pointing out the first inclination on most peoples part is to lie and see if we can get  away with the
My opinion  is that Tiger Woods will not change his strips, because he has enough money to tell even Jesus to go pound sand!

Customer Service

We have all walked into a business and seen employees who treat you the customer like crap.
How many times have you return to that business to buy again?
My question today is do you think customer service in businesses have improved or gotten worse?

Caught Between a Rock And a Hard Place!

In the Graveyard of Empires: America's War in AfghanistanI watch President Obama's speech last night and frankly I was feeling a little sorry for him.
The mess he is facing today must really be taking a toll on him,it's not a easy thing to make the decison to send 30,000 men and women to war.
I don't have an answer that would make sense to him or to the war hawks who have kept this mess going.
But what I do know within my own heart is that war is hell and if thats the game you want to play,then you and your love ones need to be on the front lines!

Cop Killer killed,Who is shock of this outcome?

Hidden Washington: Including Seattle, Puget Sound, San Juan Islands, Olympic Peninsula, Cascades and Columbia River Gorge (Hidden Travel)Well I said a few days ago that the man who killed those four policemen in Washington State over this past weekend  would never see the inside of a courtroom.
Well folks this evening  news reports a lone policeman investigating a stolen car report happen upon him.
Not like on "Law and Order" he was not told to raise his hands and get on the ground,he was tried,convicted and killed on the spot.
For all you folks out here in the heart land who believe we have a criminal justice system for all,you better take the blinders off and start watching your back!
