A Clearer View

What an awesome experience this last weekend was for not only our youth but for the adults as well. We went to a place in the world that most will never go, the slums of Ecuador. We did not actually travel to Ecuador rather we traveled to Lineville, Alabama to the S.I.F.A.T. (Servants in Faith and Technology) grounds for a 48 hour simulation of life in the slums of Ecuador. …… Continue Reading

 

Racism – A Learned Skill

Racism – A Learned Skill

There is no doubt in my mind that racism still exists. However one needs to be careful calling someone else a racist. Ask yourself whether it is racism or ignorance? There is a difference. When someone says those blasted Muslims, or all those black people, those whites, those anything of the sort, then they are racist. Regardless of color, race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other “qualifying” status that …….

I Owe You What?

So I was called racists today for not apologizing for whites owning slaves hundreds of years ago.  In fact when I asked the person who said that if their ancestors were slaves he said no but other black people were so therefore it affected him.  Really?

Extortionists

Extortionists

I abhor the comments that Donald Sterling, owner of the Clippers, said regarding race.  He is a true bigot that needs help.   His girlfriend should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for taping him inside of his home as well.  Imagine for a moment that during a conversation with your significant other in the privacy of your home, being scripted and recorded as extortion material.  Now imagine them selling that information to someone who will intentionally use it to harm you.  We have all said things in the privacy of our homes that we would not want others to hear, hopefully not what Mr. Sterling said, but something.  I am not defending him at all, but remember this is all out there because his girlfriend broke the law in order to profit from this conversation.  They are both wrong.

Branded

This is for the guys who slip off their ring as they walk into the bar. Karma, what can I say? A women’s scorn will one day come back to bite you when and where you least expect it! So she said as the package was opened with the photos of you sleeping and,

your ring falls out!

Well I feel like such a fool, thinking the whole time you’re so cool

While you were using me, you had a family

And I admit you’ve played me well, and it worked until I felt

You had a wedding band, carved in your cheating hand

Branded,

Don’t pull me into your life; I’m not competing with your wife

The “Grand Puba” has spoken

Obama thinks that he can wave his magic wand and make everything better, at least until after the elections. It is so funny to see the squirming among the Democrats today. They can’t believe that the insurance companies would cancel policies that the law THEY created told them to cancel. How sad is that? The Puba himself two weeks ago said just get a new policy off of the exchange, you’ll love it! Then those dreaded poll numbers came out.  Continue Reading …………..

The Audacity of the American People

Is there a buck and if so, where does it stop? Who are we, as Americas, to question the President and his minions? His smug demeanor and the inexcusable blaming of others has stepped beyond Chicago and now has corrupted the most corrupted city we have, Washington DC. How dare we question his leadership, how dare we question his ethics and policies, oh the audacity of the American people!

obama

In a world lacking of personal responsibility, our Commander and Chief is setting a shining example of avoiding responsibility. With so much going on in our country the only thing that he seems to want to take credit for is his golf score. The era of Chicago politics has completely enveloped Washington DC.

Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to Ashes

The fight came from nowhere.  Words were said that should not have been.  Feelings tossed out like the trash.  Raw nerves grinded like coffee until there is no feeling.  Bruised, bleeding, alone, and crying in the corner.  Never again are the words that are there, but not out loud.  Self-healing bones and long sleeve shirts hide the damage.  At some point something snaps and clarity sets in.  There is an end to the madness,

Yes, there is an end.

It is not so easy to see

Which of the limbs have been broken

Or to know when the roots became visible to all

Hope and Change

Hope and Change

One day you are on top of the world.  Your family was happy, healthy, and living the middle class dream.  Then things that you have no control over turn your world upside down.  You had a little in 401k, a few little investments, and had just bought my dream house.  America seemed to die a little that year and now four years later we are in the ICU on life support.

I miss my America

To sleep under a starry sky

It used to be a dream

Now it’s a nightmare with no end

To listen to the sounds of the night

The Tears Left Behind

She drinks whiskey for breakfast, and he’s never noticed                                                          He kisses her cheek, as he runs out the door                                                                              He’s gone for a week, and she’s left there crying                                                                           For the man that she loves, and a love that’s gone wrong

She cries for her lover, her friend, and her husband                                                                    She cries for the memories, that have faded in time                                                                   She cries as she sleeps, with no one beside her                                                                               And that no one will notice, the tears left behind
