This is a topic to post "whatever" is on your mind (random thought).

I also, thought it would be a good place to inject an off-topic comment about an ongoing discussion or debate where you didn't want to disturb the flow.
Original Post
Well, It's almost Father's Day. I get real sentimental around this time, as I miss my daddy. He's been diseased for many years, but my broken heart from his death has yet to heal because I won't let go. So, Ive managed to live with it. On occasion, I've dreamt about him and woke up crying.

To you fathers out there never underestimate the influence you have over your children. If you show them love no mater what happens they will always love and esteem you!
Len...

This was the first Mother's Day I had to endure without my mom ... I made it through the day, but the day after was the hard part! Smile But, because of that, I am especially celebratory of my father this coming Sunday! I will probably try to buy up the Academy sporting goods store for him!

Your heart will heal! Remember he's still loving you from where he is just as you are loving him from here! So, the saga still continues! Smile

And a happy early Father's Day to all you dad's out there! Heart
I've never used the album feature for multiple member posts, although there is a button that I clicked for it to be a "community album". You may need to start another thread to add pictures. Perhaps the "community" aspect is limited to additional posts added beneath the gallery.
I saw this quote and thought that it tied to a number of threads.

"The first truth is that the liberty of a Democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in essence, is Facism - ownership of government by a individual, by a group, or by any other controlling power." FDR
America becomes enraged when one of her own dies at the hands of the enemy. Paul Johnson's murder is but another in what, unfortunately, may become a long string of high profile murders of Americans in the Middle East.

This up swell in sentiment raises questions about the 800 or so other Americans who have died in that region. Where is America's outrage at their death's? What's the difference in the relative indifference that we approach their deaths? Could it be that because "W" has censored the press from covering certain key elements of American deaths (like showing their flag draped caskets as they come home) that we are prevented from personalizing each American death so as to continue to give "W" a pass on his failed mission?

I bet you can guess what I think!
I saw the Tupac video yesterday. He made a comment in an interview that made me laugh. He was commenting on how a White person called him a Ni@@er, and the (White) interview responded by saying that he used the word in all of his songs. Tupac corrected her by saying, "Ni@@er, not nigga. A ni@@er has a rope around his neck and hangs from trees. A nigga, has gold ropes around has neck and hangs in clubs." (And I'll add, "and smokes trees."

But, is there really a difference?
While visiting in Charlotte, NC., I was in a grocery store where there was pork of some kind in a standlone un-refrigerated bin near the meat counter. Hmm, what kind of pork do they eat and sale in the south that does not require refrigeration? It didn't look smoked.

That would be the Deathgut brand of pork... no refrigeration required.
Why is it that people come here and take on fake identities? This is a site that, for the most part, embraces all kinds of positive, productive debate. For example, I have invited and encouraged all perspectives since day one. We've had all manner of members across the entire spectrum of ideology. Why do people feel the need to pretend to be what they are not? downT

At the end of the day, you just get "outed" for who you are anyway, and in the process you get embarrassed and lose all credibility. Why not just be who you are? It's OK to be white and active here. It's OK to be conservative. It's OK to think you know more than we do and to try to change our minds on positions that matter to us. It's even OK to be racist. Just be honest!

Whether identities are fake or not... in that same sense of being honest? How come people can't be honest about what they really feel or want to say... or was saying... or was trying to say (imply)...

Anyway... that's always bothered me. And gotten me in trouble (knowing or not knowing whether people were being honest). Big Grin

Sounds like a sticky, MBM. Something to put in the New Members and Issues forums, etc. (warning, information, notice) Who knows if it will help...
I was speaking less about personal identities, as much as ideological ones. I don't care if people create different names/handles/avatars etc. for themselves. That's cool. To be clear, it's disappointing though when people come here pretending to be black, for example, when they aren't. Over the years I've found it somewhat common for white conservatives to come here and create a facade of a black conservative - in an effort to try to "open our eyes" about things. downT They try to tell us how affirmative action and reparations etc. are all not to our benefit. I would so much more appreciate someone saying - "I'm a white conservative. I don't believe in anything that you do and I'll tell you why". Aside from being so much more honest, it would lead to much better debate than the subterfuge of a false identity.
I understand your perspective now...

White conserv's have never been honest, if they were there would never have been a watergate, reaganomics, Willie Horton, prez. bush 1 would have not told the country that he bought crack across the street from the white house (one of the most secure spots in the world Roll Eyes), no 911, no enron, no "war on terrorism", and definetely no "liberation" of Iraq.

With a track record like that, and I am not even scratching the surface, how, more importantly, why would you expect them to be honest here?

White people have been lying for thousands of years in order to protect their "interests"... you cannot possibly expect them to start telling the truth now. (so that no one is offended, know that I am speaking in general terms)
My ex called and my son doesn't have to deploy. He has some medical issues he needs to take care of so he is safe for now. Whenever I deployed I felt it was no problem. When he got his orders I din't like the idea at all. I know as a young man he needs to find his own way in life, so does me not wanting him to go make me a hypocrit?

I think I understood you from the start. But I will even try to give people the benefit of a doubt (sometimes) on their ethnic identities. But feigning Blackness while speaking Whiteness fluently just doesn't work.

It would seem as if they think that since they've read books by Blacks that they somehow have the perfect cover.

But beyond that... I have no love for the weasel... People who conveniently change their position or emphasis when they are met with strong opposition on their first proposition...

Anyway... I share your frustration, MBM.

Randomly... You (MBM) should never think that we question your sincerity. In the midst of debate, sometimes you lose sight that you're down with us.

Although I'm not sure whether it's a concerted effort or not, I do believe that "folks" come here with the sole purpose of stirring shit up and getting the conversation bogged down into ultimately meaningless BS to keep us from serious conversations and developing real solutions for our progress. There are a couple of members here now that I suspect of these ulterior motives. COINTELPRO lives. broscream

What I say to that (knowing I may very well fit into that tangent category) is for those who want to focus on serious discussion to do it and not use disruption as an excuse to avoid a thread or whatever "once it's gotten out of hand"...

I can change gears at the drop of a dime. Smile
It just seems that if I were 'the man' and was threatened by national and international black unity that I'd just foment tension around issues of identity and race and nationality to prevent any meaningful dialog from taking place. Think of how much BS is going on in this site lately. We're arguing about our identity with fringe 'nut cases' who clearly do not have the broader communities' interests at heart. I mean think about it, we've got people here who are trying to tell us that we're not even a race. Roll Eyes

I posted an article by an African who talked about tribal conflict in Africa. Well, if in America there are not tribal affiliations to use to separate people like they've done in Africa, then, well, let's create some "tribal" shit to divide in America.

I didn't want to disrespect the posting for Ossie Davis' funeral.

I don't know what to call it; pet peeve, nagging irritant, personal quirk, but....

This kind of thing still bothers me. I wonder which one the several contributors (writers/journalists) to the piece wrote this: "...Wynton Marsalis played the jazz trumpet,..."

It's so tiresome.

Ain't that the truth...
I'm posting this here because I can't think of another, more appropriate place.

(Please forgive the discconnectedness of this, but my head is spinning with rage)

I just got off the phone with a close friend. About a 8 months ago, she left a job to return to New York because her mother was dying of cancer. (My friend's 19 year old daughter and 1 year old grand-daughter followed her to New York.) She got there and her mother spent the next two months in and out of the hospital. The mother died about 4 months ago. With no job (although the daughter held down a minimum wage retail job) and no where to go, my friend decided to remain in her mother's rent controlled apartment until she put together some money and found someplace else to go.

Well, within a month of her mother's death, the landlord told her to get out. He locked her out. He cut off the water to the apartment. He threatened her. (All of which are unlawful) Finally, he served my friend with eviction papers. Last week, at the proceeding, the judge gave her until the middle of March to vacate the apartment.

Well, shortly after the landlord began his illegal campaign to get them out the daughter began taking her a bit of each check and prepared to return to Arizona. My friend found a job in another state that would begin where ever she could get there.

The daughter took whatever she afford, after food, diapers and other necessities, and rented an apartment in Arizona. She is only $45 from having paid the unit's 1st, last months rent plus the security deposit. She had found a $95.00 flight for her daughter and herself and planned to purchase it with her next paycheck

Well, on Saturday, they noticed that the grand-daughter was acting like she was coming down with something. At 2:00a.m., They woke to find the grand-daughter burning with fever. They hustled her to the emergency room at found that she had 105 tempature. While the doctor worked to get the grand-daughter's tempature down, he noticed the daughter's eye was inflamed and weeping. The doctor examined her and diagnosed the daughter with pink-eye. They also were told that medicaid had cancelled they medical insurance. So the hospital gave them a $300.00 bill and three prescriptions totalling $400. My friend asked for some samples for the prescriptions. The doctor's response, "We don't have any. You'll just have to spend cash." Well, that didn't go over well. When my friend spoke with the patient advocate, her response was, "It ain't my fault you ain't got no insurance."

Well, the next morning the daughter went to work - pink-eye and all. She was there about 20 minutes before she was sent home and told not to return until the pink-eye was cured.

In the meantime, my friend went to the welfare office to find out about the insurance. She was told that the insurance was cancelled because my friend had missed a re-certification appointment. When my friend told the worker that she had not received any notice of the meeting, the work said, "Oh, that's because your landlord sent the department notice that [my friend] had been evicted and had vacated the apartment. We didn't have any place to send the notice." My friend asked whether the department had tried to call her. The response, "For what? If you're evicted, you wouldn't have a home to answer the phone." My friend then, asked for emergency assistance to purchase the medicine for her daughter and grand-daughter. The department refused saying that they couldn't provide that kind of help. They would however, reinstate her for next month.

After an hour of arguing with the worker, my friend began the 8 mile walk home, in the rain. She stopped into a store to rest. While resting, my friend saw some eye-wash. She told me that her thinking went toward her daughter - "if her pink-eye is cured, she can go back to work. The daughter then could buy her daughter's medicine and eventually get back to Arizona."

Well, she pocketed the eye-wash ... and got caught. She now has a court date.

It sickens me that our system has BILLIONS for foriegn adventures, we have billions for tax cuts for the rich, all the while, we have an administration whose budget priorities push folks that already have their plates full to choose between surviving, i.e., breaking the law, or, just rolling over.

There I've ranted and vented ... and I'm still pissed.

Can anyone honestly say they wouldn't have taken the eye-wash?

If you sat on a jury, would you vote to convict under these circumstances?

Tell me am I too close to this?
This is so outrageous I kept waiting for you to say, "I'm just kidding."

Clearly, you are not kidding.

I would have been in jailed back when the hospital worker told me about not being at fault cause I didn't have insurance.

Yes, I would have taken the eye wash. Maybe two.

Seems like there should be a haven for such deserving cases.

Looking for Alternative Black Voices



I would like to invite you to join my yahoo group and participate in challenging discussions of Black sexuality, culture, race and history. I'm looking for Africentrists, Pan Africanists, Black Nationalists, Black Vegans, metaphysicians and practitioners of West African Spirituality (or any spiritual practice that isn't Judeo Christian based). I'm looking for outspoken Black activists that are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgendered to share their experiences and perspectives. I'm looking for anyone that can come to the table with sound reasoning that can articulate why slavery is the origin of the social ills of African Americans today. I need participants that are willing to shatter the perception that money and material gain give one value. I need the small percentage of the Black population that has attempted to dismantle their vestiges of mental slavery and free their minds to join me in the debate of all things Black and sexual.



Peace and many blessings.

As much as I love my people, I still must say that our men have become pretty much useless. Many black men are just plain good for nothing.

You would be a fool to trust many of our men with any responsibility. This is definitely a fool's bet.

We have mastered the art of excuse making, and some of our women have helped convert our brothers into P zombies by allowing them to stay at home and do nothing while she works.

Grown men sleep at home at 12:00 p.m. with absolutely nowhere to be. Grown men with a giant bowl of fruity pebbles, and a game console on a monday morning, is just insane to me.

These brotehrs, have the luxury of doing nothing, and receiving the love of many of our best women, while hard working, productive men go under appreciated.

Right now there is a brother sitting on a couch, with corn rows, a blunt, a forty ounce on the table, no job, no money, with a beautiful black women in the kitchen cooking his favorite meal...

I completely fail to understand....is thug passion really that important?

Anyway...even when these brothers come under pressure to produce, they quickly demonstrate how underdeveloped they are. I mean seriously, hiring these brothers is like a punishment....

Anyway...it is just crazy as hell...

the black community needs a system for redemption...Or we need to understand why the prison industry is growing...As we are, many of our men are good for nothing but crime, and the natural result, jail time.


Once again, I love my people, however, they frustrate the hell out of me sometimes...However, I have faith that we will rise...I pray that I see this day.

Life is so uncertain. A woman I grew up with and knew very well died in her sleep a few days ago. She laid-down to take a nap and didn't wake up. Her daughter found her.

That's why I don't put much stock in life expectancy. There have been too many people I've known who died before the age of 50. I'm beginning to truly grasp the saying "lived each moment as if it were your last."

Smells can really take you back sometimes.

I got a whiff of some gjetost. A smell my nose hasn't met since I was four at the most.

I got all nostalgic and stuff and found myself grabbing a couple of blocks.

It's not until now that I remembered that I don't love gjetost all that much.

Weird texture. Ugly color. I couldn't really remember the taste, though.

I used to be intrigued by the smell. I didn't really like to eat it.

I just tried some plain. I suppose it's okay in itty-bitty quantities once in a blue moon.

It's not one of those everyday stuff and I can't think of any recipes I can sneak it into.

It seems that I'm the only one around who doesn't find it disgusting.

Ma looked at me as if I tried to poison her.

At this pace these blocks will last decades. sck

I saw an interesting interview last night with Dave Chappelle on "The Actors Studio." Admittedly, I have only seen snippets of Dave's shows, which were very funny. Last night I saw a serious side of Dave that reminded me in spirit of Richard Pryor. Both men seem troubled but able to release their frustrations and messages in an ingenious way.

Normally, I would not have watched the entire show. Dave however, kept me interested. He shared his truths, and experiences in Hollywood and growing up in DC/Maryland. It was his seemingly honesty and courage to say to millions of people what was on his mind without sugarcoating. I admired his spirit, and could relate in so many ways. There was a message in his interview that I needed to hear.

Dave ended his interview with a sentence that I wholeheartedly believe.

"The truth is permanent and everything else falls by the wayside." Dave Chappelle

There is a long multi-legged fast moving prehistoric cave-dwellingish insect in my room.

I thought I smashed the thing a while ago, but it's here.

I sprayed it with outdoor bug slayer spray and some legs fell off. They are still stuck on my wall.

It's sick.

But I can't find the bug itself.

I think the bug still got away.

First it was torture-the parents by media without solid evidence, vaguely reminiscent of the dingo-took-my-baby saga in Australia. For some reason a lot of people wanted the mother to be guilty - when eventually she was found innocent but not before years of harrowing trial-by-media and uninformed public opinion - perverse.

I guess that's one way to get champagne & seafood flying Business Class... and probably a TV talk contract is floating around... I say it was a career move! lol tongue
this is a random fact I came across today which I find quite profound....

Papua New Guinea - that big island up above the Australian continent - has given birth to about eleven hundred living languages... and apparently 1 in every 6 languages spoken on the planet come from this island. These are languages, not dialects. Eek

So says Mark Abley's recent book.
They were walking in the park & holding hands. My first thought was how nice it was to see a black couple enjoying each other's company.

When I walked passed them I could see their faces, and was surprised to see how much older [than the man], the woman appeared to be. When he stopped to kiss her in the mouth, I quickly turned away -- it was a nauseating sight to 'almost' behold.

Now, if the age difference had been the other way around [older man, younger woman] I would not have given it a second thought. As it was, I couldn't help but wonder what the hell was he doing with such an old lady.

How could he have a family with someone so much older??? [as if THAT were any of my business..lol]

But seriously, she was a lot older.

I am generally an open-minded person, but it seemed so wrong for him [imo] to be romancially involved with a woman so much older [at least she appeared to be].

I'm terrible, I know. stck

and I almost feel guilty for having such negative & hypocritical thoughts about strangers.

Ah well.
Peace....

I like to think that I amm consistent. I like to think that I call things as I see them..A ball is a ball..A strike a strike...Doesn't matter if my own son was at bat...I call them as they come...

I fail to understand how people can make statements while completley forgetting the true past...

One of the worst crimes committed against black people is the inequality in the application of law. Crimes are not prosecuted against offenders equally. Black offenders will more likely be incarcerated for crimes where white offenders will likely not be jailed fo the same crimer.

Judges discriminate...Judges discriminate.

When a person is guilty of committing a crime, even if you are not the one affected, you should recognize the offense nontheless..That is if you have sound character...

If yiou steal from my enemy, you are still a thief.

You become what you think about most. . .

. . .you also attract what you think about most.

Everything that comes into your life you are attracking into your life. . .

. . .it's all about what you're thinking and the images in your mind.

For the most part, I try to focus on the positive.

Although, admittedly, it's a challenge.
A focus on the positive does not mean you ignore the truth -- good or bad. However, it means you "do not" & "will not" wallow in the negative as it serves no purpose BUT to give you more of the same negative energy.

Each individual is unique & different, personally, *I* will ALWAYS do what works best for "me" in "my life." I'm not trying to be a carbon copy of ANYONE -- especially not a stranger on a message board.

I don't see that ANYBODY here has it ALL together. The very folks spouting "God" and "religion" are the nastiest, meanest, most vindictive & hypocritical people on the board, imo, ofcourse.
Peace....

Everyone has a code of rules which work best for them...

Perhaps insulting people and calling them B!tch, C**t or even Trick Is just my style that works for me.....In this case "My style" violates people, and therefore I cannot blame them when they ask me to adjust myself.


"How dare someone so imperfect point out the way I behave"

Do you have to be perfect in order to receive respect? Do you have to be perfect to avoid being called a Cunt, or a Trick??


I think we all should just..how do you say it? Be easy...

Hmmmm. . .in my opinion and in some cases, hypocrites should simply mind their own business.

As you feel the need to defend your sista, I felt the need to DEFEND MINE [at the time].

What makes your defense of another so much the better choice?

And I'm talking about commentary between WOMEN. . .no "man" was involved so try to stay the hell out of womenfolk business...would be my advice to a hypocrite like you.

FTR: Personally, I'll take no ADJUSTMENTS or correction from the likes of "bytch azz kissing hypocrites" like YOU appear to be.

Be easy?

You're easy when it comes to "trick bytches" doing whatever the hell they want [including being INSULTING for no good reason] "to other people," so STFU, "you bytch azz licking, hypocrite trick."

Don't you have some azz to kiss?

Do sinful priests (or leaders of any religious group) expect to claim an exemption from hell?


If such leaders are alive in 2006, and live in the Western world they don't have to ask for an exemption, they are already in hell...

The trick is getting out of hell, not how to avoid getting there...

You talk about respect, but you don't really want respect now do you..You just want to be accepted even if it means allowing brothers to call you whatever they like while you wipe your face with a smile...

Is it that hard to get a date???

btw. . .black people are jealous of illegal immigrants, did I [kai] mention that? well, it bears repeating.
Fabulous happens to be one of the most genuine women on this board. She is both a woman and a mother. You may not like the way she expresses herself ... but you can be assured that she is not putting up a front (unlike some people) ...

Unlike some people ... ahem ... she has authentic virtue.

Saracen, you could follow your own advice and refrain from arguing with women ...

It's real easy... if she says something that rubs you the wrong way, don't respond... Though I do admit, I was slow to catch on to this principle (I am guilty there as well) ...

But that's what I've started doing with the evil nut that you call a friend ...

It's not hard ... and it makes life better for everyone ...

I'm a bit tired of the super-duper pro-black men around here ... who put black women on a pedestal ... and who think we should never argue with women ...

But then that only seems to apply to their favorite women ... sorta like the punks who will kill you if you talk about their mama ... but they'll go out and not only disrespect other people's mama but also they're busy creating brand new mamas to disrespect ...

Isn't that the definition of hypocrisy? At best, it is indicative of immaturity and/or intellectual confusion ...
I was going to chop it off, as I've been waiting for a reason to go bald. I'm too chicken to do it just because I wanna (don't think it'll match me), and gigantic gum seemed like a good enough reason. However, I got curious about how to get gum out.

First I tried ice, which everyone said would work.

It did not. The gum was coming out, but my hair was coming out in clumps with it. That wasn't quite the way I wanted to take my mane off. *ouch*

So I decided to go the opposite route. I had a kettle for tea on anyhow.

Hot water worked really well. It dissolved the gum away, but there was a sticky residue afterwards that I couldn't get rid of regardless of how much shampoo I used.

I grabbed some olive oil and worked it on.

From sticky to greesy.

But the shampoo got all the olive oil out.

The older I get ... the less patience I have for arrogant, condescending white folk. I have never been a prejudiced person, but I now recognize the "white privilege" attitude some of them have...

I can't help but wonder if it's innate that some of them stir shyt, and have no regard or respect when black folk attempt to discuss [among themselves], issues & concerns relating to the black experience. . .

. . .Or when black folk try to work out their personal differences. . .

. . .seems there's always atleast one white person putting in their two cents where it doesn't belong. It irks me that some of them feel they must involve themselves in EVERYTHING black.

It's always about THEM & what they want. . .and what they WANT is "apparently" MORE important than anything else--particularly any black "healing."

"They don't understand black culture, therefore, the focus must be on THEM."

I am starting to believe that "collectively" whites are a very destructive people, especially, when it comes to black folk.

I didn't always feel this way.

It wasn't enough to lynch us, experiment on us [unknowingly], destroy our families, perpetrate the myth of black inferiority. . .

. . .it wasn't enough to distort historical truths.

Wow, so many "white" lies.

It isn't enough to place a liquor store on every corner in black communities, make drugs easily available & allow gang violence to run rampant...as long as it doesn't affect young white boys.

Heck, all the above isn't enough, they must also contribute to any "black forum"... any "black oriented" piece of cyber space, sharing their 'interference' as well as their bigotry, hatred & self importance.

Or, they "benefit" in some way from our need to commune amongst ourselves.

No, I don't blame white folk for EVERYTHING, but I do feel they are the MAIN contributing factor in the destruction of the black community--individual 'black' self hatred, and black folk hatred for each other.

JMO, and a few of "my" random thoughts for the day.

Yep, I know what you mean.

My immediate work environment consists of mostly white men, but at least they have enough common sense to keep their mouth shut & 'step back' at times & when necessary. I also live in what is considered a Jewish community, [although there are many 'Christian' white folk & 'other' folk too]. So, in other words, I've pretty much HAD to be "culturally sensitive," both on the job & at home.

However, my gripe is with white folk who don't know what it means to consider such a thing, as it applies to black people.

They make subtle insults, and continually interfere when black folk are trying to resolve/discuss their differences, or issues pertaining to the black community.

The fact is, these particular white folk are SELFISH individuals, they have absolutely no culture sensitivity unless it involves THEM personally & directly. They seem to feel it's their RIGHT to stir shyt and put in their two cents where it doesn't belong. I loathe these people. I'm trying very hard to maintain a positive vibe, but I absolutely LOATHE these self-important, arrogant & SELFISH white AHMFS.

My second random thought for today -- I don't want to feel this way; truly I don't. . .so I'm trying my damnedest to rid myself of this negative energy.

To do this I gotta focus on the "positive" which I'm having a hard time locating at the moment.

Because the white folk I'm referring to are NOT going to change, they don't even see [or choose not to see] that they DO anything wrong. smh.

This bending over backwards & trying to appease THEM [the actions of some], is getting on my last damn nerve.

To the point of nausea.
Found my camera today! I've been bitching about the loss for so long that I don't know how many cameras I've been offered.

Did not want any.

My babe is a crappy cheapo thing, but I've carried it EVERYWHERE with me nearly EVERYDAY.

It couldn't be replaced.

Going out after losing my baby, I felt as if I were going out with no panties on. While wearing chafting corduroy. Oh how I've missed my baby.

I had some stuff I was anticipating on it, however, I think the film is destroyed.

Who cares. I'm not nakey anymore! dance

I wish this were a "Random Thought", but my job/career makes the following a daily frustration ...

For a living [and as my personal mission] I investigate complaints of housing and employment discrimination. It is getting more and more difficult for me to remain objective in my job, as of late, because:

1) I'm being faced with more blatant and agrievous acts;

2) I'm finding that my [non-Black] co-workers "just don't get it" in terms of the devastation that discrimination wrecks on people;

3) [and possibly related to #2] I'm realizing that my [non-Black] co-workers are under the guise of being neutral, objective fact-finders, are bending over backwards to give the alleged bad actors, the benefit of a doubt;

4) [and also possibly related to #2] I'm finding more and more, investigations are being short-circuited because management is more concerned about being good administrators [e.g., preserving the budget, reducing back-logged cases, reducing the average case age and maintaining its "non-adversarily, less litigious" stance towards Respondents (defendants)] than seeking justice.

Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad

Okay ... Rant over ... Time to go make a real estate agent and her property owning client's life very, very uncomfortable.

Somebody has to.
Peace.....


Sometimes I think that I should apologize to the children of the black community on behalf of all black men who have failed to create a better world for them to grow in....This place is truly a terrible setting for a child...

Yes there are opportunites, but the price is beyond what any of us can afford..We pay for American luxuries with our souls....

This world has lost all innocence..it has lost its innate ability to enchant...It has lost it's wonder...

Our community is a cess pool, and we, black men have failed to properly respond...We are still trying to figure out ways to convince another man to repair our misery, when in truth the very man we deliver our complaint to is the one culpable for our plight...

I remember wondering "How did things get so bad for us?...And damn why did God choose me to to be of those who live in such misery?" My thoughts were that we, black people must be destined for greatness since our obstacles are so great, however, our progress is negligible while our regressions are considerable.

I was listening to 1972 Jesse Jackson speaking at the infamous "Gary Convention"...Man the brother was beautiful, and so full of hope...He was Young and strong, and the world lay before him...The future was so bright...Jesse was brilliant...It was "Nation Time!!"...and then the opposition mounted a counter assault...and we fell down...

If the struggle is over, then we are doing nothing more than birthing children into the slaughter...

And thus my desire to apologize to our children for not doing enough to secure a world for them...


Had to get that off of my chest...

What the hell is it with the gas prices??? Has the world situation improved that much in recent days that I'm actually scared to buy gas today for fear the price will fall even further over night.
What caused thse sudden price drops? Is this just another example of how big business and the gov't are doing NOTHING for the people but steadily lining their pockets? Mad
What really gives?
