The United States Supreme Court in deference to Roshashana has deferred judgement on Troy Davis's fate and if he will recieved a new fair trail until October 6th! Your Prayers are appreciated.
Excerpt: Amnesty International Report on theCase of Troy Davis
Where is the Justice for me? A plea from Troy Davis
Where is the Justice for me? In 1989 I surrendered myself to the police for crimes I knew I was innocent of in an effort to seek justice through the court system in Savannah, Georgia USA. But like so many death penalty cases, that was not my fate and I have been denied justice. During my imprisonment I have lost more than my freedom, I lost my father and my family has suffered terribly, many times being treated as less than human and even as criminals. In the past I have had lawyers who refused my input, and would not represent me in the manner that I wanted to be represented. I have had witnesses against me threatened into making false statements to seal my death sentence and witnesses who wanted to tell the truth were vilified in court.
For the entire two years I was in jail awaiting trial I wore a handmade cross around my neck, it gave me peace and when a news reporter made a statement in the local news, “Cop-killer wears cross to court,” the cross was immediately taken as if I was unworthy to believe in God or him in me. The only time my family was allowed to enter the courtroom on my behalf was during the sentencing phase where my mother and sister had to beg for my life and the prosecutor simply said, “I was only fit for killing.” Where is the Justice for me, when the courts have refused to allow me relief when multiple witnesses have recanted their testimonies that they lied against me?
Because of the Anti-Terrorism Bill, the blatant racism and bias in the U.S. Court System, I remain on death row in spite of a compelling case of my innocence. Finally I have a private law firm trying to help save my life in the court system, but it is like no one wants to admit the system made another grave mistake. Am I to be made an example of to save face? Does anyone care about my family who has been victimized by this death sentence for over 16 years? Does anyone care that my family has the fate of knowing the time and manner by which I may be killed by the state of Georgia?
I truly understand a life has been lost and I have prayed for that family just as I pray for mine, but I am Innocent and all I ask for is a True Day in a Just Court. If I am so guilty why do the courts deny me that? The truth is that they have no real case; the truth is I am Innocent.
Where is the Justice for me?

“You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.
“For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,but he who is generous to the needy honors him.
Open your mouth for the mute,for the rights of all who are destitute.[fn3]
Open your mouth, judge righteously,defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Greed: 'Gred\ Noun: Selfish desire beyond reason.

B: a feeling that one has seen or heard something before.
2: something overly or unpleasantly familiar. Webster/MerrimanThis ain't no liberal left wing swipe or some right wing fascist diatribe. This is just plain facts and plain truth. Can't deal tough! Go listen to Al Franken or Bill O'Reilly and let their left wing or right clawed azzez massage your political sensibilities and busted wallets!
I've been periodically watching the current wall street crisis and over the last two weeks two things have become apparent. The real reasons and culprits will not be raised and prosecuted, taxpayers will be hosed, poor people and minorities will be blamed and congress will probably not have the nutz to do what's right. Save the partisan hackle cause i ain't got time for the bull ish!
Henry Paulsen, the Top, super important, number one, numero uno, HDIC Treasury dude, testified before congress stating congress needed to act quickly and approve the $700 Billion dollar bailout or we would face Imminent DOOOM!
Congress: What? Imminent DOOOM! Oh let's give em the money!
Give em the money with no oversight, no RE-Regulation, No Reform! Just a big check with no strings attached?
Congress: Well, he said Imminent Doooom!

2: something overly or unpleasantly familiar. Webster/Merriman
Imminent Doom you say, well that sounds serious. Where else have we heard if we don't act now we face imminent doooooom?
Oh yeah, now, I remember. Colin Powell and a whole bunch of really high paid dudes said that when they wanted to invade Iraq! WMD's, Mobilized germ and chemical warfare vehicles and that of course the Iraqi peoples would welcome us with flowers as liberators to quote Serious Black man boob admirer Donald Rumsfeld.
Regulate: \ regye/lat, Verb, Governing according to rule. Adjusting to a standard.
Deregulate: \de'regyu'lat\ Verb, To remove Restrictions.
Alright boyz and girlz have you read the definitions for today's words?
Gooood! Do you understand where I'm going with this?
Does anyone remember Gordon Gecko? Greed is good! Greed is right!
How about Ivan Boeskey? Micheal Milken? Charles Keating?
Earlier this decade Enron and World Com collapsed sending ripples through the financial sectors, ruining lives and well, moving right along.
In both cases there was little oversight, relaxed rules and greed. Greed!
So here we are again facing a $700 Billion dollar bailout in the latest financial scandals. About five months ago former CEO of Fannie Mae, Frank Raines sued the United States Government for emails, records and other correspondence that would assist in his case against the Government.
Raines alleges that there was nothing wrong with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac before the current Bush administration began to place it's people on the staff and change or tamper with policies that were in place. The Bush administration has refused to turn over the records invoking, You guessed it! Executive Privilege!
Now five months later Freddie and Fannie have collapsed. No, comment??? Hummmmmm? It's just a coincidence right? President Bush and his administration have never acted in an empirical way placing those loyal to the president in any sector of the government. They've never placed someone unqualified in a position as a thank you for loyalty. They never been accused of tampering with policies of a department before, right?
Before you answer. Alberto Gonzalez, (Justice Department) Harriett Meyers(White House counsel, Supreme Court suggestion and Justice depart), Michael "Hellava Job Brownie" Brown,(FEMA) and Johnny " He's just a fuzzy wuzzy teddy bear" Bolton. (United Nations)
Lets take a little trip back in time. See how this de-reg-u-lat-ion thang has worked out in the past. I borrowed a couple of passages from the 1980's Savings and Loans scandal. Also see Lincoln Savings and Loan, The Keating Five and just for fun Silverado Savings and Loan helmed by Marvin or Melvin Bush and how that all played out.
The U.S. Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s and 1990s was the failure of 747 savings and loan associations (S&Ls) in the United States. The ultimate cost of the crisis is estimated to have totaled around $160.1 billion, about $124.6 billion of which was directly paid for by the U.S. taxpayer.. Wiki.
Glenn and McCain: cleared of impropriety but criticized for poor judgment
The Keating Five scandal was prompted by the activities of one particular savings and loan: Lincoln Savings and Loan such savings and loan associations had been deregulated in the early 1980s, allowing them to make highly risky investments with their depositors' money, a change of which Keating and other savings and loan operators took advantage. Savings and loans established connections to many members of Congress, by supplying them with needed funds for campaigns through legal donations. Lincoln's particular investments took the form of buying land, taking equity positions in real estate development projects, and buying high-yield junk bonds. Wiki
The scandal was followed by a number of attempts to adopt campaign finance reform—spearheaded by U.S. Sen. David Boren (D-OK)—but most attempts died in committee. A weakened reform was passed in 1993. Substantial campaign finance reform was not passed until the adoption of the McCain-Feingold Act in 2002 Wiki.
So now let I get this straight. Each time an industry has been de-reg-u-lat-ed it always ends up in scandal with alot of big players, taking over smaller companies, manipulating the markets and in the end we always got hosed. That's called a con game baby! But we keep getting conned cause we keep taking the bait.
Demopublican: We need deregulation because it will free up the markets and allow for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit to bloom. Regulation or further regulation stifles unfettered capitalism and the free market. Taxpayer or gullible Demopublicans: Oh, the free market. We don't wanna hurt that! Let's give it to em!
Then some folks make alot of money until it collapses and then those people are gone and alot of folks get hurt. Mainly poor folks! This morning I read that it was because poor folks and minorities were given home loans that's the reason for the mortgage crisis.
No, it's because bankers and loan institutions gave loaded, bad, high interest, loan shark, predatory loans to poor folks and minorities, alot of whom qualified for better loans, but were strongly encouraged by banking institutions to take upfront low interest adjustable rate loans that later skyrocketed to unmanageable rates that they collapsed.
It was pure unfettered capitalism. Take advantage of any opportunity disregarding principle, morals, ethics and good sense. Greed! Baby! Greed!
Bankers all over made huge commissions off of these kinds of predator loans. Has anyone admitted that the type of loan was wrong? That the practice itself was evil?
The great social scientist W.C. Fields said there's a sucker born every minute. He was prophetic. The sucker always ends of the taxpayer and the poor!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

But I replied, we already have socialized health care.
A HMO is a form of socialized health care. Do you really believe that you can see a doctor and get your meds filled for such a cheap price without it being socialized even a little bit? Try it without it! Go on I dare You! I, double dog dare You!
Some including Mac would argue that it is privatized health care not socialized. We are both right!
Years ago, I had Kaiser, when it was still good. I could get a prescription filled at its pharmacy for $5.00. Yeah! Today it's still $5.00 dollars to get a prescription filled but well the hospital is not as good. So why, so cheap? Could it be that it's because we all pay a certain amount for our health care plans? Could it be that the drug companies give a discount because of the amount of medications purchased?
Is that not what we are after with Universal or Socialized Health care?
Now, for all the right wingers, fiscal conservatives and partisans, I'm telling ya now save the rhetoric and the Bee Ess cause I ain't got the patience for it.
My man, Mac, then asked, well do you want higher taxes? I answered, No, of course not! But informed him that we already pay higher taxes!
He asked me how?
I tried to explain but he quickly muddied the water with partisan rhetoric.
First, I am not a Republican! I am also not a Democrat! I am a Black Dude! Neither party has always acted in my or my peoples best interests! I know enough history to know that the Democrats were the racist, obstructionist, segregationist party that denied the rights of Black folks up until 1964 and some would say beyond, depending on who you ask. We were Republican until the 1964. Some still are. My Grandmother was! (RIP) They too sold us out when it was convienient! Abraham Lincoln, The first Patron saint of the GOP, was not looking to end Slavery, his interests were in keeping a Unified country, however that was achieved so be it! He talked of deporting us! The Republicans also have more than their fair share of Racist, fascist policies and deeds too. So my politics are with my people first, then the working and middle class then America's! I am all for helping America rise but not if my people don't rise!
America looks to it's own interests and hurts my people. Black People! Whenever someone, not the Nation of Islam, points that out then we get called racist! No, there isn't a major city in America, where you can't find a China town, A Greek town, A lil something. Where's little Afrika? It ain't the Ghetto! I am not a racist and will never be. I believe in the Brotherhood of Man. I will never avocate turning anyone away who needs help. Black folks throughout history have always shared! To our detriment!
Whenever Black folks say they are gonna do something for Black Folks like build businesses and create jobs in the Black Community, it's frowned upon even though everyone else does it. Black folks are the only ones expected to be Universal. So that's where my politics sit! Don't like it, Tough! I love Jesus and tried to be Universal until I realized the only one trying was me. Fool me once..
But I digress.....
So back to Mac, socialized medicine and higher taxes. King/Harbor Hospital in Watts, South Central Los Angeles, is a county hospital. Up until about five years ago it was one of the best trauma centers in the nation. The Trauma center was closed, as were several others, in the immediate metro area. The hospital was almost closed. Poor healthcare! They couldn't keep enough nurses. Hospitals like Kaiser paid more!
So when a non insured person gets the flu or a cold and can't go to the doctor for treatment they go to the emergency room. They will not be turned away. The city will end up footing the bill, not for treating illness ,when it was the flu or a cold, but for pneumonia or bronchitis. It could have been prevented if medical care was affordable. Is that a tax? Yes! It may not be called a tax but it's a tax. That same money could have been put into a clinic that served the uninsured and save the taxpayer much more money.
This is an argument that has already been proven and won so many times that it's pointless to argue it again.
If half the people in city don't have any health insurance then we are doing something wrong! Let's fix it! Come to the table with your ideas.
Now is it wrong for a health care company to make a profit? No! Of course not! But it is wrong for profit to be the major motivating factor! That's where they lose me. Some people would actually defend a system where half didn't have health insurance, and another thirty percent has it, but can not afford to go to the doctor, just so twenty percent can remain well insured and the shareholders make a profit!
That's wrong! What I don't hear is ways to fix it! How many people work full time jobs but have no health care? How many have health care but their kids are on medical cal? ( State assistance)
See we already foot the bill! I say, we spend the money smarter and more effectively.
In Watts and Compton where King/Harbor is the majority of the population is working class, the education level ranges from those who have no diploma to high school diploma/some college. The racial makeup of Compton and Watts is increasingly Hispanic. Why do I mention the racial makeup? It's been used to muddy the water again. Prop 187, remember? Are we giving public serves to illegal aliens? Should they be able to walk into a hospital and get free health care on our dime? Then we don't talk about affordable health care we are talking about immigration then. That's not the issue! Immigration is not the issue! It's just a smoke screen!
Bill Smith, makes $30 K a year, doing construction. He pays $1750 a month for a two bed room, 1 bath and he has two kids. His wife makes $25 K and none have health insurance. The company doesn't offer it and they can't afford it anyway!
Let's talk about what happens if Bill, his family, go untreated then an illness morphs into a stronger pathogen? How much money will that cost? Who will carry Bill? A small few would just put the foot to Bill but again Bill declares bankruptcy or defaults on a loan then who foots the Bill? We do! That's the point! Get it! The healthcare and drug special interest lobbies don't care about the taxpayer! They privatized the profit and socialized the loss!
What's the solution? Go to any emergency room in the inner city on a Friday night. It will be filled to the brim with the poor and the uninsured. It will be overwhelmingly minority!
So, here's what I would suggest we do. One implement some form of universal health care. Two, send doctors into Mexico to treat those who would come North before they do. Build clinics here and in Mexico. Have new residents work in the clinics with MD's and abroad. Supply all the clinics. Is it the absolute best plan? Heck No! but it's a start and it's better than what we got now.
We can use socialized models that work from Canada, France, Germany, Cuba and tweak them but hey these are not third world countries here.
Will it lower my quality of health care? It shouldn't! If you got nothing now what have you got to lose? If the taxpayer is already footing the bill anyway then I think the taxpayer would like it to be spend better by having that money reinvested into clinics and hospitals. What's the benefit?
Hospitals and clinics! Better relations with Mexico and possibly one less reason for illegals to head North!
Just a thought! But just so this gets said. One of the reasons it wouldn't work is because of the drug, insurance companies and partisan hacks who would let first Xenophobia, and most of all Greed! Greed being the main motivating factor. These special interest lobby millions every year to keep the status Quo. Which leads to only a few folks getting good health care and the rest with nothing. These special interests, the insurance lobbies and drug companies, want to privatize the wealth from the current system and socialized the risk or failures. The bill from the uninsured on the backs of the taxpayer.
Time for Change! If they preachin Stat Quo, they gots to go!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

Geraldo photographed after the battle!
Anderson Cooper observing the battle!
Former Georgia Governor Zel Miller
Whoa! I haven't seen anything this horrible since I watched The View!
Well Alright! Whoop! Whoop!
Senator Joe Lieberman speaking on behalf of the Hideously Evil Monkey!
The House of Representatives
I love the smell of Napalm in the Morning-Apocalypse Now
At five o clock this morning Serious Black loyalists attacked the Citadel seeking to free their leader and restore him to power. It was a fierce battle that lasted four hours. See Photos
Anderson Cooper was at the citadel seeking an interview with Serious Black. He was denied access while the those loyal to the hideously evil monkey insisted that the New Republic of Conservative Symians does not torture! The underground network reported that Serious Black after twenty four straight hours of Xena and the Gilmore Girls was reduced to sitting in a corner and sucking his thumbs and maybe a couple of toes. He's a monkey, don't judge him.
It was at that moment Anderson reports observing large symians hurling hot monkey mud against the windows and screaming! Free Serious Black and Give us Lieberman or Geraldo Rivera gets it! This proved to be a grave miscalculation as no one claimed Geraldo and he was subsequently thrown into the battle literally. Anderson Cooper reported witnessing Geraldo's body slammed repeatedly against the iron gates. The gates now breached and Geraldo still able to speak, the Monkeys, in an unprecedented act, of cruelty continued to let him speak!
Serious Black Loyalists set up thousands of hot lights and loud speakers playing Billy Ray Cyrus's Achy Breaky Heart and Michael Bolton repeatedly as loud as it would go!
Senator Joe Lieberman slithered away, escaping through a sewer line. Singer Toby Keith set to perform a tune praising the Hideously Evil Monkey was merrily stomped and beaten by the Dixie Chicks who came along with Anderson Cooper, Bono and Raekwon the Chef (who beat Keith with a spiked hat), in a delegation to free Serious Black.
This is Anderson Cooper reporting from the Citadel!!! Oh My-------!

According to the Autobiography of Malcolm X it was Wallace who first tutored Malcolm in Orthodox Islam. Wallace was sentenced to three years in prison for refusing the draft and in that time studied Al-Islam and his Islam as his father taught it. After comparing the two Wallace ceased teaching the official NOI doctrine and instead taught Al-Islam. Wallace was suspended many times from the nation for not teaching the doctrines and theology prescribed by the Nation of Islam.
He was reinstated as a Minister of the Nation of Islam and would succeed his father as leader upon Mr. Muhammed's passing in 1975. He changed the name of the Nation of Islam to the World Community of Al-Islam in the West opening the mosque to all races and adopting Al-Islam. He denounced the original NOI teachings, closed the restaurants and bakeries and began to concentrate on teaching and bringing the people to the light of Al-Islam.
Several ministers chafed under his leadership most notably Louis Farrakhan who broke with Warith in 1977 and reformed the Nation of Islam. It is the largest of all the dissident organizations.
Imam Warith Muhammed became the first Imam to offer prayers at the United States Senate. In his lifetime he often spoke of truth and reconciliation between all members of the human family. He and Louis Farrakhan embraced and reconciled publicly in 1997. Minister Farrakhan in recent years has moved the Nation of Islam closer to the orthodox teachings of Al-Islam.
I am personally saddened by his death. He passed on September 9th and in a way this is the closing of one of our greatest opportunities. Warith Deen knew what extremism was and wasn't. He was an orthodox Iman and could have explained Islam to Americans and he could have explained Westerners to the Islamic World but strangely enough we are still just as ignorant about Islam and other world religions and cultures as we always were. He did not immigrate here, he was from here. He was very well known and respected and he was a non immigrant. His people didn't immigrate here they were imported and he was from the homegrown stock. He could have battled the likes of the Osama Ben Ladens with the beauty of Al Islam that Americans are so unfamiliar with. Now he's gone, We've lost that chance. He will be missed.
Allah U Akbar Warith Deen, rest in peace see you on the last day. May the God (IAM) of Peace be with your family in their time of grief.
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayer!
