Oh snap! I just made an online purchase that reminded me of another quirk! I like lounge music. Space age, exotica, bossa nova, Vince Guaraldi, that whole "Ultra Lounge" CD series, etc. Basically, picture a mod setting, lava lamps, people schmoozing and sipping martini's circa the late 50s to mid 60s.

I understand your point, but everything starts somewhere, but, what is happening in African America and to our young people is like a cancer, and before we can eradicate this cancer, we have to also deal with the source of it, or it will always come back, [as it always does].

Most people that have leaders; the leaders don't do a damn thing but lead them straight to the grave. Leaders don't do anything but garner lots of wealth for themselves. Most leaders are millionaires. Folks poor as church mice, eating out of dumpsters and scrapping for water have leaders. Where ISIS's is blowing up stuff, decapitating folks, those countries have leaders. Israel has a leader. Palestine has a leader. The 54 (however many) African countries have leaders. Pastors are leaders.
