Sometimes I get a lil miffed at Wynton and some of his stances. But I love the way this Brother clarifies his messages. He does an excellent job here and I think it would be wise for alot of us to emulate it.

"We grant you [Kings of Spain and Portugal] by these present documents, with our Apostolic Authority, full and free permission to invade, search out, capture, and subjugate the Saracens and pagans and any other unbelievers and enemies of Christ wherever they may be, as well as their kingdoms, duchies, counties, principalities, and other property [...] and to reduce their persons into perpetual slavery.

Mista Jaycee's Rant on The Greatest, Bestestes Candies in the whole wide world that Y'all copied from Compton! So There!
Now, this was probably the first piece of jewelry any of us owned. It was overpriced, cheaply made, sugary and gaudy as all hell. Then after it got wet, your hair got stuck on it but you ate it anyway. ( Admit it) AHHHH! Good Times!
The Matching Bracelet! ( read the above caption)
Oh, one of my first loves! Now Laters! The Apple were the greatest! They were Hard but we loved them and if you got a stale pack they were chewy and good. Now they jacked em up and changed the recipe. They ruined!The Big Hunk! You had to have them G Teefis to eat this!
The Straight up no nonsense pure unadulterated Funkadelic candy! It was Hot! Good to have at the movies!
The Jolly Rancher! Same thang as the ring pop but more bang for ya buck! And if you really grown and sexxxy the fire stick was the bomb!

I read about this on Super Womans Blog and it just got me thinking. G--Damn! Jaycee
When you under 21 you have no fear of death for tomorrow is considered promised.
When you under 21 you have no respect for life because you've never had to raise one.
When you under 21 you've never had to stay up late helping your baby with homework you no longer understand.
Over time when you had a few too many hangovers, and a few times, the monthly visitor, was a couple weeks late you will understand what life means. The weight and how much these things matter. You will understand the anguish of waiting for test results after a few mornings after!
When you under twenty one you don't know the joy of being 21.
One moment the world was yours! Next.....Darkness and for us the living.... No Answers! No Solace! Just Sadness and Rage!
So now Change from With in! Oscar Grant Died from an External Source but our Internal sources are far more frequent! Put your guns down! Throw them away! There is absolutely nothing you could use it for that would be for the good of our people or yourself!
Put Your Guns down and Learn to deal with Anger and Rage like Healthy Grown Ups!
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
Maybe it's just me, but whenever I read the Apostle Paul, I get the impression that he was a bit of a d*ck! I don't get the impression that he was liked by a whole bunch of folks. The New Testament gives documentation that Paul met with a few of the Disciples who were Old Men when he met them and was on his mission of evangelism and I don't get the impression that they liked each other, much less agreed with one another.
Paul journeyed with Barnabas and although they were friends and had been through some stuff together, Paul split with Barnabas, going to forge his own ministry. So I always think about Paul, a murderer, many times over, an extremist, for sure and his life.
Think about us and what it says of our character. I read in the Book of Ephesians, long ago about Paul cautioning the church about how they looked at non believers. It seems they had forgotten who they were and how they got there.
Paul said "Some of you were drunks, liars, thieves and it is only through Christ Jesus, that you are not them today." Paraphrased
What would be your impression of President Barack Obama if you'd met him with a cigarette in his mouth? Yet, he's still a Harvard Graduate! Still an Occidental Alum, still a father of two, Still Husband to Michelle, still a Lawyer, A Bi-Racial Black Man, and is now the President of The United States of America!
How did Barack's change happen? He made up his mind to change and then he gave it over to God! (IAM) That was the start. His change happened while he was being the Barack he was and his change is still happening right now. Your change is happening now too.

The last thing we heard was Mahler's First Symphony in D Major. Now, one of my favorite pieces of music is Mahler's 5th Symphony in C# Minor, the 4th movement. I'd never heard the 1st but I enjoyed it alot! There are so many twists and turns in this one. Mahler definitely had his own thing. I liked this one the most.

The Brazilian Thong
But...(No Pun intended)
Used improperly the horror that can be unleashed not to mention the hours of sheer comedy well...point is leave it to the professionals. You could put some one's eye out!
Unleashed after the CIA LSD Experiments were discontinued this in tandem with disco and the mysterious Mr. Jiggly. It ruined every television show from the late 60's until the early 80's! Like any virus it lay dormant for over a decade but threatened a new outbreak after Jamaroqui came out with Space Cowboy! It's flammability is the stuff of legend. This in combo with Stasoftfro and Afro Sheen would have burned down all of West Philly!
Beware! Be Vigilant!
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
The Arizona Cardinals have made the Super Bowl and now Obama, a Black dude, is President of The United States Of America. The United States Of Amerikkka! Yeah, I can't believe it either!
I almost want to check gravity and see if water is still wet! I'm happy about it! WoW! Congrats to the Steelers and Cardinals, wish it was the Raiders but well everybody has their time.
I'm cool about Bam Bam (That's Obama for all y'all new readers) but I want more. I want the politicians we got to get on board with this idea of change and looking out for the people. I want a whole breed of States people who are looking out for the interests of the people and not just their own interests!
I want to see our freedoms restored. The Patriot Act relegated to the compost heap of history and for those who were imprisoned back in the 60's for political agitation released. Assata, Marshall, Leonard Peltier, Albert Nuh Johnson, the Angola 3 and the list goes on. Time for that evil to be vanquished!
Lastly I want us to be good towards each other. Sure the world sux's right now but we can get through it together!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

Bayard Rustin! He organized the March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs where Dr. King gave his famous "I have a Dream" speech. Rustin studied Henry David Thoreau and had travelled to India to study Gandhian Non Violent Resistance Techniques from Gandhi! He was organizing and teaching these techniques years before and in fact taught them to Dr. King and many in the struggle. He had also been on the front lines fighting for the Scottsboro Boys earlier.
Didn't Kareem Abdul Jabaar produce a movie about him?
