CHANGE I do not believe in

29 years ago in the first Political Science course of my college major, I read the following;

I didn't buy this crap then nor do I buy into now.

However I think some of our elected officials do.

" You must therefore confess that by individual you mean no other person than the bourgeois, than the middle-class owner of property. This person must indeed, be swept out of the way and made impossible."

Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable:

1) Abolition of property in Land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2) A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3) Abolition of all right to inheritance.

4) Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.(are you a rebel ?)

5) Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6) Centralization of the means of communications and transport in the hands of the state.

7) Extenstion of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing
into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance
with a common plan.

8) Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies.

9) Combine Agricultural with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction
between town and country, by more equable distribution of population over the country.

10) Free education for all children in Public schools.

..."The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more by the action of modern industry, all family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labor."

I have a confession to make about President Barack Obama

He seems like a polite guy. I've read both his books. I've reviewed his speeches and voting record in detail. I'M ON HIS MAILING LIST.

Below is the most recent letter I received from President Obama.


As we head into the final stretch(still haven't seen a real bill) on health reform, big(mean) insurance company lobbyists(how many are in your administration ?) and their partisan allies hope that their relentless attacks(war reference) and millions of dollars can intimidate us(huh?) into accepting the status quo(what?).So I have a message for them,(I'm president and you're not) from all of us: Not this time.(look angry) We have come too far(applause). We will not turn back(finger point). We will not back down(cheer).But do not doubt(glare) -- the opponents of reform(not yet clearly defined since you came on seen) will not rest(pause and refocus). So I need you, the members of Organizing for America(fundraising election group), to fight alongside me.We must continue to build out our campaign -- to spread the facts(you mean 5 different 1500 + page bills?) on the air and on the ground(battle references test well with organizers) and to bring in more volunteers and train them to join the fight. I urgently need your help to keep Organizing for America's 50-state movement for reform(never defined) going strong. Please donate $5 or whatever you can afford(10 % + unemployment) today (website here)

Let's win this together,(win what ? your next election)

President Barack Obama (omg, omg ,omg it's him)

Stacks of Facts...that nobody cares or knows about....

The next time our employees(Congress) vote on a bill on a Saturday night without having read it , shared it with us or publicly debated it, Remember this:

"It is the individual citizen's understanding of facts that counts in a DEMOCRACY. In Totalitarian states, only a few people have to know the significance of facts. Here in America everyone has to know what the facts mean." - Paul A. Wagner

Now, that said, What is the media doing to help with this process of understanding ?

Will the media ACTUALLY investigate the Fort Hood shooting ?

Will anyone actually investigate who MALIK NADAL HASAN is and why he killed 13 and injured 30+ people at Army Base Ft Hood Texas ? Or has the Media narrative already begun, framed in politically correct jargon and doublespeak as to not offend ? Who are we worried about not offending - killers ?

There are dead soldiers on an American base...again.

The Killer: Malik Nadal Hasan

Job: Army Psychiatrist
Born: Virginia USA
Religion: Muslim
Educated: VA tech & Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
Identifies himself as: Palestinian

this is a start:

So let's see what we learn from our media on this one. The same media that calls Americans "whack jobs" and Tea Baggers when they show up on Capital Hill and demand answers about Health Care or yell KILL THE BILL. This same media has ALREADY begun to excuse the actions of Major Malik Nadal Hasan.

It was it unfolded. A six year old boy...apparently piloting his wacky weather chaser dad's balloon ...uncontrollably thousands of feet above the earth. NORAD contacted. Army Air National Guard Helos scrambled for rescue....Wolf Blitzer trying to make sense of it all...perhaps for the first time in his career-


THERE on the screen LIVE...AS WELL AS SEVERAL TALK RADIO SHOWS- speculating. HOW WHO. a boy. the belly of the beast. a helium balloon.....not meant for flight- or was it ? built for humans or was it. What kind of man builds something like this. Do we know the family ?

at one point the plan was to use the rotor wash of a US ARMY helicopter to steer the Balloon into safe airspace until it landed.

"it could be hours" said one-speculative goober.

At what altitude would he need an oxygen mask ? has he fallen out. I can't see him.

"gee Rick, it does look like saucer"

"It's being followed by the traffic choppers now"

"He'll be over Denver in hours"

"I'm worried about the wires"

The experts started weighing in: Balloonists, Skydivers, Pilots, meteoro-weather guys-



The Balloon couldn't of lifted him off the ground anyway. (WATCH MYTHBUSTERS)

Sorry Ghandi but you're not THE ONE.

Obama must be so hard to shop for. He has everything. He's THE ONE. He raised 3/4 of a Billion dollars in campaign money. He's been president for almost an entire 10 months and he's only 48 ! That's a kickin' resume. He's been on more magazine covers than anyone. Can you imagine? Every problem on the planet is the former president's fault-whew!- it's been tough cleanin' up THAT mess....and lookin' good doing it. BTW, Obama is on the cover of MEN'S HEALTH magazine this month ( Mrs. Obama is on the cover of Prevention)- It's a healthcare related thing. I saw the issues at the hospital gift shop this week. He makes it look so easy. POW. BAM. BANG. Today you gotta feel bad for those people who have actually earned a Nobel Peace Prize.

It doesn't matter if numbers dont add up, plans do not compute or promises change monthly-

Because it's about HOPE and CHANGE.....and when you're about HOPE it's all good.

So you Can get a Nobel Peace Prize for being HOPEFUL for the world and world peace and hoping we can all get along regardless of unemployment rates or debt ratios or wars because our president is HOPEFUL....and THAT is what got him elected. The U.S. dollar is now backed by HOPE. Our Military will soon be supported only by HOPE. Our cars will be fueled by HOPE and major cities will run on HOPE. The 10% of the American workforce that is unemployed(25% in some major cities) will realize, it's not jobs they need it's just HOPE and CHANGE.

OBAMA- The first Yuppie president: NOBEL PEACE PRIZE


America has found someone to put us in our place. HOPE HAS CHANGED

President Obama, What are your thoughts on a 44 year old man drugging a 13 year old girl and having sex with her ?, and one more question sir-

And as a follow up question what are your thoughts on Whoopi Goldberg's comments on ABC's The View yesterday regarding the world looking at America's norms a bit differently regarding these kind of things? I hope President Obama you will take the time, as a father of two young daughters, to comment on this situation to the world. To be more specific: Adult men having sex with 13 year old girls drugged or not, American or not. Whoopi is not clear on her VIEW.

Please make time to comment on this important issue as you have made the time to comment on the Cambridge Police, speak in the Public Schools, comment on Kenye West, travel abroad on behalf of the Chicago Olympics, and discuss your NCAA picks.

Jimmy Carter's RACE COMMENTS are an Embarrassment

Who do former President Jimmy Carter's recent comments on race and Barack Obama embarrass the most; Himself, America, or Barack Obama? Its a tough call. President Jimmy Carter- probably one of the most disappointing one term presidents of all time (see his record) is a self proclaimed expert on race-relations. He was raised in the south and a former governor of Georgia. So I can't help but wonder why he would make such remarks unless it was to provide cover for Barack Obama, a president who's policies are so close to his own it's uncanny. One of the few differences I see between Carter and Obama is, Carter's pastor, friends and czars weren't trashing the United States on a scale never before seen.

My questions for Mr. Carter are; How did Barack Obama get elected? Who actually voted for him millions? Why in the world would you provide fodder for race-baiters like MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews ?

Jimmy Carter, like others, has attempted to make America's reaction to Barack Obama's policies ,which now appear to be different from those of most Americans, based on race .

Shame on you Jimmy Carter- stop making excuses for Barack Obama. It is embarassing.

Something to be concerned about

I am concerned that some mayors. senators, congressman and presidents have forgotten that they work for us, are accountable to us and are paid by us. If these men and women didn't want to have to answer to THE PEOPLE, they should of chosen a different profession. They are elected and paid to serve- not anoited to rule.

Are you afraid of Sarah Palin ?

* update

I realize there are people who get their news from John Stewart and actually believe they're not only smarter but hipper because of it. Some of those same people think that Tina Fey's Sarah Palin was by far the greatest SNL sketch ever. Are these some of the same people that hate Sarah Palin? If it's not hate is it fear ? What could cause such fear and concern across our great nation regarding this woman?

Is it that She's a wife, a successful working mother of 5, a grandmother that loves God ?

Perhaps it's the fact that she's attractive, assertive, seems to be happy, and a very politically active conservative ?

Could it be that she's a hunter, an outdoorsman , a snow machine enthusiast and a soon to be former governor of Alaska?

What about her husband Todd?-he seems like a decent guy, a good dad, flys a plane, chops wood, builds stuff, supports his wife and looks like he's in good enough shape that if the car broke down or the power went out he's got it covered.

Maybe it's the fact that she's got a bigger set of cojones then most liberal guys and some so-called conservative ones too.

You betcha

Barack Obama

It's hard to find people to discuss Barack Obama rationally. People either are off the charts with hate or off the charts with a Jesus- like worship. I did not vote for Barack Obama. President Obama is a very effective communicator, knows how to wear a suit,and appears to be a solid family guy. He's changed politics and campaign marketing as we know it. I've read his two books-most Americans have not(see sales numbers). I've reviewed his voting record from Illinois and DC and read almost all of his speeches. His campaign was as close to flawlessly executed as one can get- just ask the McCain campaign. Obama is a fundraising machine: $785 million plus and counting....

That doesn't change the fact that I hate communism, socialism and everything these "isms" stand for and have done to the world. I believe government is too big. Government should not be the biggest employer- then the employees can just VOTE for the boss so they can keep their benefits.

We need term limits. 12 years for the Senate, 6 years for Congress. I also believe that when government sticks it's nose into the free market, it gunks it up, and then politicians give us sound- bites like " if we don't act now, everything will implode",and " we need more regulation." It never occurs to anyone to check who was regulating what and when.

I think President Obama was wrong when he decided for the first time, against holding a public ceremony for the National Day of Prayer.

Why do we need a Hate Crimes Bill?
I HATE CRIME. I especially hate violent crime of any kind toward any person.

I believe political correctness is strangling our political process, and what remains of dialogue. Too many people are checking the wind, the opinions of others and their checkbook before they speak honestly on anything. It's tragic. It makes many of our elected officials appear like empty puppets .

It's possible to be passionate without being rude. You can be engaged without being offensive. If one's actions and record are clear, there should be no doubt as to where they stand; Sadly that's easier said than done in politics.

I think too few people read history. Too few people care about anyone's else's history let alone their own or their country's.

Read the:

Constitution of the United States
The Declaration of Independence
The Mayflower Compact

It's a start to understanding why I am not a fan of Barack Obama's politics

Although it's hard to admit: The media says "jump" and most people say "how high?"

Last night I turned on CNN to see Larry King talking to Michael Jackson's lawyer. Underneath the picture: COUNTDOWN TO JACKSON MEMORIAL... and there were the hours and minutes ticking away- as we wait as a nation?-. I'm waiting til it's over. The quicker the better. Michael Jackson: great musician, dancer and creative guy- most certainly. Worthy of 24/7 WORSHIP? I dont think so. For the record, I didn't have to run out and buy/download Jackson's albums, I already owned them including a lot of the stuff he did before he went solo. I know the impact Jackson had on radio, the music industry and my prom(1979). But the American media has spoken about Michael. Period.
Just as they have spoken about Sarah Palin, Obama, Elvis, Clinton, Britney etc. When the media says jump MOST Americans say how high. Too bad for our country.

Our economy is imploding-ask Joe Biden

We have double digit unemployment

We have are fighting a war in TWO countries

We have more socialist anti-business-anti growth legislattion being proposed and moved through our government now than ever before

There are tens of thousands of people protesting the government and what it's saying, spending and deciding.

However, the media decides what is important to us and for us. The media decides who is important to us and for us...we nod.

The internet is the one of the last places where you can actually find the truth- grant you- you have to weed through some junk but it's there- and so far the internet is not regulated by the government -YET.

You get the picture.

How often have you watched the news and said. That's horrible ! or that's fascinating....and then went to investigate deeper what you just heard or saw. Many people just REPEAT IT.

Most people in the media know you don't Fact-check what they say because a lot of them don't even fact check what they say.

So I guess the question we should be asking is "what's the story here?"

Who is asking me to jump and why ?

Then there is always reading books for information- who the heck wants to do that when you've got THE MEDIA ?

A quote for the road: Here's what GANDHI said about Adolf Hitler in May of 1940:

"I do not consider Hitler to be as bad as he is depicted. He is showing an ability that is amazing and seems to be gaining his victories without much bloodshed."

Safe travels with your family this weekend and remember our men and women defending our country all around the globe.

Why mommy - why is it such a good thing ?

There is no place on earth that socialism works. It does a good job of laying the groundwork for the other C-word; Communism.

Some in the media and all enemies of America do a remarkable job demonizing Capitalism.

Today I listened to a live town hall meeting(on the web) where President Obama(a tobacco smoker) spoke of further regulating our health habits and our healthcare- and putting Tobacco companies under the control of the FDA.

President Barack Obama:"...for example, the single payer plan-in some countries- thats worked very well..."

Before naming any countries where his proposals even work, let alone work well-he moves on to more awesome oratory.

Facts or no facts, Mr. Obama is one eloquent man ,and that smile, like Oprah said "he's The One"

back to Socialism...

President Obama along with his chief of staff and many of his cabinet members are millionaires- H0w could this be ? Are they closet capitalists? or just lucky Socialists or maybe something that should not even be discussed in public...are they...NO !!...they're not Republicans...

If that were the case...the public would know everything ....much like we know about Sarah Palin's daughter's baby's father's lovelife.

The first rule of CLUB OBAMA don't talk about CLUB OBAMA

Socialism is truly the "feel-good" sensation of the season ,from churches to schools to General Motors. Socialism was GM's down fall. In fact your Yukon Denali payment helps pay the bennies of retired GM employees for the rest of their lives. Just to be clear: work 30, then get carried for an additional 20, 30+ years...until the planet is broke. At least in the case of GM...there was hard work on the front end.

James Ostrowski explains the zany popularity of Socialism.

Why then is socialism so popular? The reasons are not complicated. First, socialism allows people to spend other people’s money. Let’s avoid the phrase “steal other people’s money,” because only libertarians see it that way.
Nevertheless, however socialists justify this spending, even they realize they are taking other people’s money. Yes, I know some socialists deny the very concept of private ownership. But even they realize that socialism takes money and property that is possessed by some and transfers possession to others so they can spend or use it.
Reason No. 1: Socialism allows people to spend other people’s money without feeling guilty about it.
Second, there is a related but distinct craving that animates socialism, as noted by many commentators. Envy is a strong emotion that has always had a powerful impact on society and politics. Envy is “a painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage” (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary). Because no one admits to acting on the basis of envy, the term “equality” — robbed of its original and legitimate meaning in classical liberal thought — is used instead. Socialism is the perfect political expression of envious people because it purports to rein in greedy and wealthy capitalists and usher in social equality.
Reason No. 2: Socialism satisfies the deeply felt and widely held emotion of envy.
Third, free-market capitalism emphasizes the individual’s responsibility for his own economic welfare. Socialism professes to place this responsibility outside the individual and with the state. Many people are happy to be rid of this burden and glad to be able to blame others for their problems. Unlike Reasons No. 1 and No. 2, this reason for the popularity of socialism is one trumpeted by its proponents. They do not see the obvious downside of the structural reduction of individual economic responsibility: laziness, profligacy, and passivity.
Reason No. 3: Socialism purports to relieve people of the burden of worrying about their economic well-being.
Fourth, in a secular age, socialism acts as a religion-substitute. Traditionally, religion would offer solace to people facing the numerous traumas of life. Now, for millions of people, socialism plays that role. “For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, the oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely, the pangs of despised love, the law’s delay, the insolence of office and the spurns that patient merit of the unworthy takes, when he” could overcome all these problems with socialism?
Utopian socialism — all socialism is utopian — purports to offer a solution to virtually all human problems. In contrast, the claims of capitalism are seen as too modest, and hard work is required as well. There is no need to quote a Marxist on the all-encompassing promises of socialism. Lyndon Johnson will do fine. In a speech given on May 22, 1964, Johnson promised that his Great Society would “pursue the happiness of our people,” conquer “boredom and restlessness,” and satisfy the “desire for beauty” and the “hunger for community.” All this and beat the Viet Cong too. Amazing!
Reason No. 4: Socialism is a secular substitute for religion and offers people (false) solace against the traumas of this life.
I considered giving intellectuals their own special reason for worshipping the state, but I decided that to explain why 95 percent of intellectuals have a ferocious love for socialism you merely have to combine and intensify all four reasons already stated.
These are some of the main reasons that socialism, which is silly in theory and lethal in practice, remains so popular, even in a society such as ours, whose fabulous wealth is the result of the shrinking capitalist remnants of the economy.

the ABC's of Propaganda: "Earth 2100"

A brilliant piece of propaganda . Kudos to ABC. The editing, the narration, the hosting. Imagine ... if it were actually based on REAL FACTS .

It was based on projections...and it was a great MOVIE.

- cut to Obama making smart decisions about the future.( that's a must)

The sad thing- people will believe this- and will be turned into a course at schools.'s the only way to control some of us.

Investigative Reporting vs. PR

I miss investigative reporting. The kind where you come away with the Truth. Remember that ? Did it ever actually happen? Or did we always have to sift through piles of slanted spun and rinsed pap to find out what we needed to know and then confirm it for ourselves ?

Now...with a few's mostly PR(puppet reporting;we say this: you say this. we say that you say that)

Puppet reporting usually has one of two goals: ratings or revenue. The problem is, the puppets rarely achieve either for long. (because they're puppets)

When was the last time you read, listened to or watched a "news" story and thought..

"wow! these people went to the ends of the earth and turned over every stone to get THIS story..and it's a darn good thing or the world may have never known"

Eventually reporters, good ones, have to take risks, puppets don't(they're puppets).
Eventually real reporters will upset some people with the Facts, puppets rarely upset people(they're puppets)
Investigative reporters don't wait for facts to fall in their lap , they go out and Find's called investigating. Puppets don't do that,(they're puppets and they need to be fed-wait that's a chia pet)
Investigative reporters dig for the truth no matter how upsetting it may be to their own view.
(puppets wear felt pants)

I've always thought Kevin Bacon was one of the greatest actors of our generation. The HBO film
TAKING CHANCE officially confirms his acting greatness. The fact that he took on this project says a lot about him as a person.

TAKING CHANCE is a wonderful reminder of the greatness of our country but more importantly the patriotism of Americans. It is beautifully filmed, eloquently written and brilliantly acted.

It is a true story. Make sure you watch the extra features on the DVD. Although this movie does not fit into many in the media's
narrative of who and what America is- I'd love to see it shown in High least as often as Al Gore or Michael Moore's films are viewed.

Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl USMC co-wrote the film - it is based on his journal. That started as an after action report of his escorting the body of a fallen Marine back home.

Glenn Beck loses credibility on THE VIEW

Yesterday Glenn Beck was caught in a blatant lie on the view by Barbara and Whoopi-

He's a smart guy and a great entertainer...but a lie is a lie.

they called him out...and the best thing he could do was claim he's not an invetigative reporter ?? He looked like a 13 year old caught stealing something from his mom's purse.

POOF ! liar.....

c'mon Glenn. you're HUGE......BUT SO ARE THE WOMEN OF THE VIEW . Why stretch the truth?

The problem with standing on a there is only so much room to move around. So your balance better be better than every one elses.

Socialism not Sexy -Communism not Cool

Where did/do you learn your history? School, TV, the internet, a library-yes books, movies, the news(lol), living people, traveling around the world -your own experience ?

History is more than Oliver Stone and Michael Moore movies or Wikipedia. When we dig deeper, we find that

Communism and Socialism just don't work.

if you know of where they have worked- please let me know.

..others screamed "Hillary is Terrorist!"

Althought U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was welcomed with singing and the waving of US flags in Indonesia, she was also greeted with burning tires and Muslim students yelling HILLARY IS TERRORIST ! Wait a second, I thought Condi was terrorist and George Boosh was terrorist ! That must of been a shock to Hillary. Not only bad grammar but finding out she people's mind.

to clear it up:

Hillary Clinton- NOT a terrorist
George Bush- NOT a terrorist
Condi Rice- NOT a terrorist

People who cut off other people's heads , strap explosives to themselves(and their children) to blow up malls , restaurants ,cars, cops,planes, tires, boats, sleeping soldiers and other stuff "to make their point"

Talking on cell phones in Cars

I've never had an issue with people who talk on their phone while driving. My issue is with people that talk on their phone while driving like an idiot. Some people are capable of talking on a cell phone and maintaining control of their vehicle and the steering wheel and being aware of the surrounding enviroment.

Some people are oblivious to all things great and small no matter what they are doing. For example...I cannot drive my car and eat lunch...especially if it requires a knife and fork... Or a big sloppy dripping Sandwich item with stuff hanging all over. Think about it. How could I? without...constantly taking my eyes off the road and rearranging my grip on the steering wheel...not to mention greasing up all the controls in my car which really grosses me out. I do eat in my's usually a Power Bar.....with a plastic bottled water. Easy to drop in an Emergency and nothing will break in my face...when the guy who isn't paying attention runs the stop sign a slams whatever is in my hand into my nose. Glass is not good.

I bring the topic up this morning because of the woman in front of me on 309 South yapping on her cell phone, swerving over the line, and going 31 in a 45. My first thought. TALK OR DRIVE. PICK ONE. I'm sure if you concentrate, you could do one thing well. All of us have things we do well. I know guys that drive 10 ton Fire Engines and they can give clear calm orders on the radio without swerving over the line or crashing into anything...BUT..I would not give them a Manwich at that point. So I don't want this woman to feel bad about this morning...BUT SHE IS A TERRIBLE DRIVER WHEN SHE'S ON HER PHONE. However there are people that can drive safely while talking.

Does her driving improve while she puts on make-up? Drinks a hot coffee/eat a bagel, or fiddle with her i-pod? I don't know, I didn't have time to follow her.

Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan says we should have "some kind of standard" or bring back the Fairness Doctrine to air content counter to whatever is on the airwaves for the same amount of time regardless of popularity. She doesn't think it's fair that 22 million people listen to Rush and one listens to Keith Olbermann-so the Fairness doctrine would allow the government to FORCE RADIO STATIONS TO AIR COUNTER the opinions of Senator Debbie Stabenow's husband Tom Athans, the EXEC VP OF AIR AMERICA ,the Liberal bankrupt talk network. See how this all fits together?

So my questions are ? Where is the Fairness is FAIRNESS DOCTRINE ?

and who should resign first. The Senator-for conflict of interest-I mean doesn't she have some unions to help get jobs? is Michigan.

or should her husband resign now ? because she's been whining about this fairness doctrine since
conservative radio has been pouinding her husbands RADIO company into the ground-CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

who's fault is it that Americans by the tens of millions agree with & listen to more conservative viewpoints than any other..or is it that those host are just more entertaining. Check the ratings.

Maybe Rev. Joseph Lowery just forgot where he was

Yesterday I spent most of the day watching coverage of President Obama's Inauguration...and like his campaign, it was impressive to watch. There were moments when the glory of this great nation shined so brightly and I, like many Americans, could barely contain my emotions...for a variety of reasons. Yesterday the WORLD watched as America peacefully passed power to a new administration after what many are calling a "graceful" & flawless transition from the previous one. Our new President(word is he's BLACK ) was put into power without force, bloodshed, polling place death threats or a military coup. He was Elected to the highest office in the land in the greatest nation on earth. Certainly the most diverse nation politically and religiously and as our president said "where else but in America" could his story even have taken place. Close to 2 million people cheered on this moment in person.

Many of us have seen the footage of Reverend Lowery's historical journey and others like him and their contributions to yesterday's historical moment. Their sacrifices and suffering can only be imagined by most of us today but certainly are respected by me.

But what I didn't see in yesterday's crowds ...anywhere for that matter..were slave owners ,
attack dogs , fire hoses, racial signs, segregated seating.

What I did see was a Black man elected president with 66 million votes in a country that is 14 % black. The day before I witnessed incredible memorials and commentary on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.....his birthday , a federal holiday signed into law by Ronald Reagan.

What I did see was an entire nation setting an example for the entire world on how to get along in the face of "all kinds of stuff."

There are many high profile Black role models certainly didn't have to wait until a Black man was sworn in as the leader of the free world.

But as an AMERICAN... I was disappointed by Reverend Lowery's closing remarks to his benediction at the inauguration of our 44th President.

here they are:

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around...when yellow will be mellow...when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.

Perhaps Reverend Lowery forgot where he was or that it was January 20 2009.

Maybe the line he was looking for was Lord give us all the strength to continue to work together as one nation under God black, brown yellow & white, to embrace what is right.

And if it was the ryhme and rhythm thing he was going for...he still could of done that without being self righteous.

Say Amen.

US Airways Pilot = Hudson River Hero for a lot of reasons

As I watched the news coverage of the US Airways crash on the Hudson River.a few things ran threw my mind..I was relieved : That it was not my family or me in the friggid waters in that plane between NYC & NJ, that the aircraft did not break into several jagged pieces upon impact and that the passengers were all safe and for the most part, calm about it.

Some say it was a miracle. The miracle was that THIS veteran captain was still around to save this plane and these people. THAT was the miracle. That Somehow Captain "Sully" Sullenberger III survived layoffs, mergers and cuts so the people on that flight could benefit from a guy with 30 years experience that calmly "landed" the plane "on top" of the water while the proverbial crap was hitting the fan....then he's the last one off before exiting the aircraft.

The plane looked almost serene floating there in the final moments before it was towed away by NYC tugs. Holy crud. Water has the density of concrete. We've all seen videos of planes disinegrating during water crashes and "Sully" manages to avoid a flaming inner city crash, then realizes he doesn't have the altitude for another smaller airport so he GLIDES it ONTO a RIVER....AND ...never raises his voice...or panics. CAPTAIN SULLY ROCKS !


(..and people wonder why pilots are chick magnets ?)

There are a lot of Hudson River heros out there.....have you ever been in an air traffic control tower ? Somebody is flying all those aircraft. How many plane crashes have you heard of ?

So , now we can add PILOTS to the list of "people society takes for granted" along with Cops, Firefighters, our get the idea.

Then for some reason I thought about POLITICS..and how many losers(think Blago) make it into politics....... and why there can't be more Cpt. Sullys in Chicago, DC or Harrisburg...but then - WHO WOULD FLY THE PLANES ?

God Bless Captain Sully and all the men & women who take our lives in their hands each day

Am I the only one that thinks the Oral Sex scene in YES MAN was out of place ?

WARNING- rated R

Jim Carrey's new movie Yes Man is good...But..

I mean it's Big Laugh funny, It's clever, It's got a few life lessons, memorable characters -it's even warm.

All the more reason I was so shocked by the Oral Sex scene with the Jim Carrey's senior citizen neighbor. Totally unnecessary. In fact..the scene starts out cute, then moves to raunch and then is revisited later in the movie by another character. The movie really flows until this frat-house pig moment.

and it's a shame...because it's been a while since we've seen Carrey's true comic genius on display. He really is brilliant, daring and why the gutter detour in the middle of such a fun film ?

the movie is actually rated PG-13
