The Republicans got it Right! Once

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds.... "-Abraham Lincoln (the first great leader of the Republican Party)

“If you stick a knife nine inches into my back and pull it out three inches, that is not progress. Even if you pull it all the way out, that is not progress. Progress is healing the wound, and America hasn’t even begun to pull out the knife.” - El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X)

Republicans, remember your roots. Abandon your right wing racist, join with the American people, and rise to the highest ideals of your Party. Let's heal this nation.

The Republican Party was born in the early 1850's by anti-slavery activists and individuals who believed that government should grant western lands to settlers free of charge. The first informal meeting of the party took place in Ripon, Wisconsin, a small town northwest of Milwaukee. The first official Republican meeting took place on July 6th, 1854 in Jackson, Michigan. The name "Republican" was chosen because it alluded to equality and reminded individuals of Thomas Jefferson's Democratic-Republican Party. At the Jackson convention, the new party adopted a platform and nominated candidates for office in Michigan.

The Civil War erupted in 1861 and lasted four grueling years. During the war, against the advice of his cabinet, Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed the slaves. The Republicans of the day worked to pass the Thirteenth Amendment, which outlawed slavery, the Fourteenth, which guaranteed equal protection under the laws, and the Fifteenth, which helped secure voting rights for African-Americans.
How did the Party go from Lincoln to Limbaugh? From light to darkness? From leadership to talk?

It’s time that the Republicans do the work laid out by their first great leader.

Ecclesiastes 1 (King James Version)

Ecclesiastes 1

1The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
3What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
4One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

12I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
13And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.
14I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
15That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
16I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
17And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
18For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

Cash for Clunkers Program. No Benefit to Bailed Out Chrysler and GM.

Over 80 percent of the vehicles traded in were trucks and sport-utility vehicles.

The top-selling new cars:

1. Ford Focus

2. Toyota Corolla

3. Honda Civic

4. Toyota Prius

5. Toyota Camry

The government has provided 1 billion dollars for this program. On Friday the House hastily moved to add $2 billion to the program by using money intended for energy loan guarantees. It's a shame that we could not find a way to benefit Chrysler and GM since we have invested so much into their survival. By the way, only 1 of these 5 top sellers was an American brand.

Luke 1:39-45 (New King James Version) Mary Visits Elizabeth

Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

Ugly Donuts

Now that we own a major part of Chrysler and GM it is time for us to make some demands. Forget about fuel efficiency or EPA standards. I am interested in a full sized spare tire. They replaced the full sized spare tire with the donut tire. The donut tire is not meant to be driven long distances and most of them have a maximum speed of 50 mph. Useless. We old guys remember a day when your spare tire matched the tires and wheels that came with the car exactly. When you had a flat, you changed the tire and your car did not look like a misfit until you got your flat fixed. You just left on the spare and repaired the flat tire at your convenience. Let’s demand the return of the full sized spare tire.

The Truth About Jesus

Looking at African-American history, is Jesus still relevant for African Americans today? What are the common misconceptions concerning Jesus that have been leveled at the black community?

Galatians 5:13-26 (New American Standard Bible)

For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.

Matthew 12:1-8 (NKJV)

1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. 2 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”3 But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4 how he entered the house of God and ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? 6 Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple. 7 But if you had known what this means, "I desire mercy and not sacrifice," you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”

Whites Only Restrooms in Philly! Jim Crow Lives!

"If you tried to use the bathroom, you might get suspended," said Leslie Young, a former worker at the facility. Young, along with Gibson Trowery, who still works at the station, filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission in October 2007..."

"Young said he recalled that a lock was placed on the restroom door, with keys distributed only to white workers..."

"The restroom black workers could use was down five flights of stairs ..."

Anger Has Its Place

"New York City cops make upwards of a half-million stops of private citizens each year, questioning and frequently frisking these men, women and children. The overwhelming majority of those stopped are black or Latino, and the overwhelming majority are innocent of any wrongdoing. A true “teachable moment” would focus a spotlight on such outrages and the urgent need to stop them."

Blessed Are The Innovators

George Washington Carver viewed faith in Jesus as a means to destroying both barriers of racial disharmony and social stratification. He taught his students that knowledge of God through the Bible and devotion to Jesus was paramount over what he could teach them through numbers and formulas. He compiled a list of Eight Cardinal Virtues for his students to emulate and strive toward…

George Washington Carver's Eight Cardinal Virtues:
1. Be clean both inside and out.
2. Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor.
3. Lose, if need be, without squealing.
4. Win without bragging.
5. Always be considerate of women, children, and older people.
6. Be too brave to lie.
7. Be too generous to cheat.
8. Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.
From a letter to the senior class he taught, dated Jan. 9, 1922.

Eight Beatitudes:
Matthew 5:3-10 describes Jesus' famous Sermon on the Mount, which contained what are known as the Beatitudes. Jesus said:

1. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
2. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
3. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
4. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
5. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
6. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
7. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
8. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

"Spirit of Innovation."

"Innovation has been essential to our prosperity in the past, and it will be essential to our prosperity in the future," ... "It is only by building a new foundation that we will once again harness that incredible generative capacity of the American people," ... "All it takes are the policies to tap that potential to ignite that spark of creativity and ingenuity which has always been at the heart of who we are and how we succeed." - President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama hoisted a beer with a white policeman and Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr yesterday evening to attempt to calm a dispute between them that had ignited a national debate. Nothing was resolved, but the President got a decent photo op. So I guess the message is that we will never fully bridge the racial divide in this country, so DRINK UP!

The Sopranos Are Real?

Being a Kansas City boy when I watched the Sopranos I thought it was pure fantasy. The took a few scenes from some old Scorsese films and took every newspaper story about organized crime and combined them into an over-blown look at organized crime in America. Well the Sopranos live. The mayors of Hoboken, Secaucus and Ridgefield, the Jersey City deputy mayor and council president, two state assemblymen, numerous other public officials and political figures and five rabbis from New York and New Jersey were among 44 individuals charged today in a two-track federal investigation of public corruption and a high-volume, international money laundering conspiracy. I guess Kansas City's organized crime and public corruption seems rather tame.

"Banana-eating jungle monkey"

This is how a Boston police officer described one of the nation’s top African-American scholars. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was the first African American to receive the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship. He has received numerous honorary degrees and awards for his teaching, research, and development of academic institutions to study black culture. In 2002, Gates was selected to give the Jefferson Lecture, in recognition of his "distinguished intellectual achievement in the humanities." The lecture resulted in his 2003 book, The Trials of Phillis Wheatley. As the host of the 2006 and 2008 PBS television miniseries African American Lives, Gates explored the genealogy of prominent African Americans. Gates sits on the boards of many notable arts, cultural, and research institutions. He serves as the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at Harvard University, where he is Director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. Michael Kinsley referred to him as "the nation's most famous black scholar."

But still he is thought of as a "Banana-eating jungle monkey". If you work hard you can achieve anything, right?

Your Bank May Be Helping You To Lose Your Home!

It has been widely reported that the mortgage crisis disproportionately affects minorities. So we shouldn’t be surprised that loan servicing companies are profiteering rather than providing customer service to minority borrowers. “Mortgage companies, some of which are affiliated with the nation’s largest banks, are paid to manage pools of loans owned by investors. The companies typically collect a percentage of the value of the loans they service. They extract their share regardless of whether borrowers are current on their payments. Indeed, their percentage often increases on delinquent loans.”

Fox Nation is suggesting that Obama's health care bill is a back door bill for slavery reparations.

I did not want to weigh in on reparations, but Fox news rhetoric has brought me into the fray. Yes, this nation needs reparations. The damage done to Black America is documented, real and lasting. The myriad of attacks on the Black community are part of our national history. The lasting effects are evident from real estate to education. White flight and blockbusting has permanently caused a gap between black and white generational wealth. The house that I grew up in was built in the 1920’s for $6000.00 and was sold to my parents in 1959 for $12,000.00. We were the second black family to move into the neighborhood. The last black family to move into the neighborhood during the 1970’s paid $45,000.00 for a similar house. The housing in that zip code now average $55,000.00. The white families that left this neighborhood with their new found equity bought suburban homes for $55,000.00 to $65,000.00. These homes are now worth $185,000.00 to $250,000.00. The gap from $45,000.00 to $185,000.00 is enormous. Our separate and unequal school systems are another legacy of our nation’s Economic Cold War Against Black America. Share cropping, eugenics, Tuskegee experiments, police shootings, red lining, disparaging cost in healthcare and insurance…the list goes on and on.

The real reason that we do not want to seriously talk about reparations is the cost. The coffers are not full enough to come close to a reasonable gesture to the evils of Jim Crow and lynchings.

Well Republicans, it is time for you to stand up for the founders of your party and support reparations. We cannot expect the Democratic plantation to lead the charge. You know the Democrats, Party of Jim Crow and the KKK.

They are busy trying to find new ways to exploit our political capitol. Republicans are into tax cuts. It is the belief of many Republicans that tax cuts stimulate the economy. I propose that the Republicans regain the dignity of their party, oust the Rush Limbaughs and lead the charge for reparations. Exempt Black Americans from income taxes for five years. Abolish all of the plantation hand out programs and allow this nation to heal. Let's call it the New Reconstruction Tax Relief Program. (or as my daughter calls it "NO TAX FOR BLACKS")
The New Reconstruction Tax Relief Program will stimulate the economy, put money where it is really needed. It will reward the hard working and create jobs for the disenfranchised. It will end the need for set asides and hand outs. It will destroy the conservative talking points on race, create self reliance, and then we can begin to heal as a nation.

It is time for both parties to stop interfering with the destiny of Black America.

As you can see, I have strong views and now that you know what I think about eugenics. I will refrain from this subject unless it comes up in the news. I just don't think that African Americans should be complicit in this practice to placate the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. We need to make it clear what we are about and what we demand from our political leaders. We can do better than preachers that support the destruction of our future generations.

Rat Behavior

Gen 1:28 “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…” NKJV

One of the reasons given in support of eugenics is that over-populations breeds suffering and poverty. They use carrying capacity models to scientifically support this supposition. Carrying capacity, used in its strictest sense means “the sustainable level of population that can be supported.” Carrying capacity models are useless because they cannot account for innovation. When oil first entered general use around 1900 global population was about 1.6 billion. Since then the population has quadrupled. As underdeveloped nations increasingly adapt modern innovations their carrying capacity estimates will vary widely from those projected today. Estimates of the earth’s carrying capacity have ranged from 2 billion to 40 billion. Without faith our decisions are made out of fear. I am not a proponent of oil, but I do have faith in man’s capacity to innovate. Many of the products of the oil industry can be replaced with renewable resources. We need to embrace innovation rather than practice eugenics which is the final solution of the faithless. Eugenicist lack faith in both God and humanity. Infanticide is practiced by rats.

Gen 4:10 “And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground.” NKJV

Send me your tired, your poor, your undocumented...

As our eugenics experiment has gotten out of hand. The 25 million missing workers lost to eugenics that are not paying into social security and stimulating the economy have to be replaced by immigration, “legal” and “illegal”. The numbers are sufficient but they set back the goals of the eugenicist. Many are just the kind of people that were supposed to be cleansed from the population. In Margaret Sanger’s (founder of Planned Parenthood) publication “A Plan for Peace (1932)” she compelled congress to “Keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924” and…”Apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” Well the eugenicists have their work cut out for them. But they are on the job...The Planned Parenthood Federation of America annual report for fiscal year 2007-2008… “showed an increase of five percent more eugenic procedures and increased taxpayer funding.” I personally recall that when God saw what he had created he said it was "good", but if you don't believe that there is a God, then eugenics seems rational.

Eugenic Procedures

The most common reasons women consider eugenic procedures are birth control; inability to support or care for a child; unwanted pregnancy (93% of all eugenic procedures occur because the child is unwanted or inconvenient); birth defects (6% of eugenic procedures occur because of potential health problems); rape or incest (1% of all eugenic procedures occur because of rape or incest). Worldwide there are approximately 42 million acts of eugenics performed. 83% of all these eugenic procedures are obtained in developing countries and 17% occur in developed countries. In the United States approximately 1.37 million (1996) eugenic procedures are performed yearly.

Race - White women obtain 60% of all eugenic procedures, their eugenic procedure rate is well below that of minority women. Black women are more than 3 times as likely as white women to have a eugenic procedure, and Hispanic women are roughly 2 times as likely. Women with family incomes less than $15,000 obtain 28.7% of all eugenic procedures; Women with family incomes between $15,000 and $29,999 obtain 19.5%; Women with family incomes between $30,000 and $59,999 obtain 38.0%; Women with family incomes over $60,000 obtain 13.8%.

Based on how well social and economic factors relate to eugenic procedure statistics whether by design or by chance, Margret Sanger’s dreams are being realized.

Eugenics Seeks More Funding


Eugenics (eu•gen•ics) - selective breeding as proposed human improvement by encouraging or permitting reproduction of only those people with genetic characteristics judged desirable.

In 1939, Margaret Sanger collaborated to write a report called "Birth Control and the Negro," which made the claim that… "negroes present the great problem of the South." This report devised a birth control program which targeted the illiterate. The report asserted that these members of the population "still breed carelessly and disastrously." Sanger enlisted Clarence Gamble of Proctor and Gamble to provide funding to train "an up and doing modern minister, colored, and an up and doing modern colored medical man" to tour the South preaching the need for birth control. "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." In a more modern note, Jesse Jackson said that abortion is acceptable because "it is not right to impose private, religious and moral positions on public policy." This from a man who once endorsed the Hyde Amendment.

We need to guard ourselves from any interest or policy that promotes eugenics for any reason. It is time to break away from the leadership of the Democratic Plantation, assert our own agenda and let the political parties earn our trust.

Where do we go from here?

Hiram Revels of Mississippi February 25, 1870 First African American Senator. Black America has come a long way from Hiram Revels to Barack H. Obama, the 44th President of the United States.

The Reconstruction Era - This is the period in United States history after the Civil War between 1865 and 1877. During the Reconstruction the Democratic Party began its dominion over southern politics. The Democratic Party’s answer to the new integrated south was the enactment of Jim Crow laws and the birth of the Ku Klux Klan. Why do black people flock to the Democratic Party? Are our memories so short? We need to review our history and take a more pragmatic and comprehensive approach to our political and economic future.
