Troy Davis set to die!

I've written on Troy Davis before so I won't rehash what's already written; Instead I would like to take the time to say that I do not believe that he should be put to death.  There are too many things that should have been addressed years ago that have not been.  There is NO Physical evidence linking Troy Davis to the murder of that poor Security guard.  Seven of Nine eyewitnesses who testified that TROY DAVIS MURDERED that poor SECURITY OFFICER have RECANTED their testimony some advising they were pressured and coerced.  That in, and of, itself, should be enough to demand more evidence but alas The State of GA and all the appeals say TROY DAVIS received a fair trail. There is nothing to reverse the findings and conclusion of that trail.  His attorney didn't suck, he had a most White Jury of his peers etc.  Innocence has NOTHING to do with if the COURT should reverse the decision. I am paraphrasing it but last year the appeals court REALLY said just that. 

You should be chilled to your very bones over that. 

There will be some who say that the victim Martin Macphill, Off-duty POLICE OFFICER Martin Macphill, needs justice.  They will get no argument from me on that.  One thing though.  Officer Macphill was working as a SECURITY OFFICER that night and I am almost positive he didn't have time to identify himself or his DAY Job to his Murderer so it should have no bearing on the weight of justice.  America loves to proclaim it's LAW ENFORCEMENT Officials deaths as higher, more heinous, and deserving of more investigation than the rest of it's citizens.  Would America and the State of Georgia be this hot for Troy Davis if Martin Macphill HAD been just a SECURITY GUARD working at the 7-11?  You know they wouldn't be. 

This has allowed folks to turn a blind eye to what we should all see clearly.  If JUSTICE is truly BEING served.  Poor Martin Macphill's Mama wants someone to pay for her sons murder.  She has every right to want that! But Mrs. Macphill can not have that at the expense of JUSTICE and FAIRNESS! Those standards, our standards have not been met.  Evidence and Reasonable Doubt state that TROY DAVIS is not the MURDERER of her son. God Bless her! She will have neither PEACE NOR CLOSURE from this.

More so there is no room for oops! None! No do over! No Replay! TROY DAVIS needs JUSTICE! Marty Macphill needs the Man or Men who really murdered him brought to justice. God Help Us if we just watch the State of Georgia or any state execute someone who most likely is INNOCENT!

God Help Us!

Tea Party Thugs Meet Jimmy Hoffa!

Where are all those Angry White People who Elected President Obama? The one's who didn't sabotage him, two years later by electing the Republicans and the Tea Party answered the question! They are fighting for thier Pensions! They are fighting for their Health Care and Dental Benefits! They are fighting to keep a well paying job!  And who's with them?  Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa Jr.  Jimmy Hoffa knows his lane and he stays in it! We Work for a Living and We will kick your Ass if you try to take our jobs!

Jimmy Hoffa scared the Republicans, Faux News and the Tea Party to Death the other day when he stated President Obama WE ARE YOUR ARMY and WE ARE READY TO MARCH! Let's Go and Take these Tea Party Sons of Bitches OUT!

Suddenly, The Right Claw wants President Obama to denounce Hoffa for his so called violent rhetoric. The nerve of Hoffa countering the TEA PARTY'S Violent Rhetoric with Violent Rhetoric! White Folks is Angry! LOL

President Obama Challenges Congress on Jobs!

Much has been made about the lack of Job creation since America took a massive dump over the past five years. It's the Presidents Fault! He won't give Big Business yet ANOTHER tax break! Yada yada yada!
Well, I still think that President Obama is being a P*ssy much too often when dealing with the Republicans, Turn Coat Democrats and the So called Tea Party.  Good for him on coming up with some good ideas and dropping them in Congresses Lap!

In times of Emergency I believe it is the President's duty to create jobs. President Franklin Roosevelt set the precedent during the First Great Depression but Obama is trying his best not to give in to any Socialist Democratic/Big Gov ideas so this has not happened on his watch during the Second Great Depression but it should. 

Jobs! President Obama and Congress you can not continue to give corporations tax breaks when they are laying off workers and shifting the burden of their support onto the States while they amass record profits and ship jobs overseas!

Mr. President Sir, If you did create another FDR style worker program, this time it would be Big Businesses fault because they could hire back their workforces and retrain them in things they need. Big Business could avert you creating another FDR workers program. They could avert you outbidding them on jobs and taking thier profits. They could avert all of this but it's up to you, the President, to put the pressure on them to do their part! Take their tax breaks! Go after the tax shelters! Make it hard for them. Go after their wealth individually! See no one is doing that or threatening to do that!

Get some balls Mr. President or Find yours! That's why we elected you!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Spiritual Food For Thought!

Faith  /feɪθ/ Show Spelled[feyth] Show IPA


1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability.

2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.

3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.

4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty.

5. a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith.
I met with an old running buddy yesterday who I had not seen in years. She looked good and attributed her newly toned physique to exercise and diet.  She shared her Christian Faith with me, which was a change because last we met she was a Taoist.  Also,during our catch up session, she asked me had I seen the "Obama Deception" video she'd shared on my Facebook page. She posted this video because she loves to tweek folks who she believed dig President Obama.  I let her know I had seen it.  It did not move me. 

President Obama has been called everything except Mr. President or a Child of God (IAM). I also shared that I didn't trust outright "Anything" White Folks said.  I check out and examine it all because of all the past things that have happened to Black People.  I said this with full knowledge that she is in a commited relationship with a White Dude.  (I don't care, as long as they are happy Cool!) My feelings on Race Relations go far beyond petty matters like Interracial dating.

It was an amazing bit of conversation because I shared with her that I too am a Christian.
I believe in God (IAM) and had accepted Yeshua (Jesus) as my Savior many years ago. Her response to me was "That's surprising! I never thought of you as a Christian in the least." WOW! I let her know I was slightly offended by that statement. But it got to thinking.

I am Christian.   I do not accept all the doctrines or dogmas of the Church.  I believe the Bible has been tampered with.  I believe that the Bible has been used for evil purposes to hurt my People.  I do not take the Bible at face value.  I do not lend my trust to Churches and their dogmas.  Pastor Charles Stanley, Ralph Reed and the Falwell ilk do not represent me or the Faith I believe in.  That said, let's talk about Faith.

What is Faith? The Book of Hebrews Chapter 11 Verse 1 says that Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things HOPED for the EVIDENCE not SEEN.  I believe in Yeshua (Jesus) although I have not literally SEEN him.  I have seen his reflection in the people that I have met though.  I have seen his works in the lives of the People around including my old running buddy.  With that I believe. 

Now, as far as my running buddies assessment of ME as a Christian when last she knew me. I say this.  When we knew each other last, I drank, I smoked, I used foul language, I lusted after Women.  Years later, I mediate, I pray, I do yoga.  I still drink although not often. I still smoke although not often.  I curse. I am a Married Father of one.  I still lust after Women. (sometimes)  What does that make me?  A Man! Imperfect unapologetically Man!

While there has been some growth and some changes I am still the same Man with the same sins. I'm just not ruled by them! I am not a slave to them. I am not condemned because of them.  I am saved because of my Faith! I am more than a conqueror through him that loved me. (Yeshua, Christ Jesus)

I am a Christian because I accept Christ as my Savior. Am I perfect? Nah, just forgiven.  Am I blind or brainwashed because I am a Christian? Nah! God (IAM) has never asked for Blind Faith. He asked me to trust him and he would prove himself to me in his works and in my Life and he's done that over and over again. I read my Bible, I have read the Quran and the Gita as well.  I have tested them to see what's what! I Believe. Can I prove it! No! That's Faith. That allows change. 

Still don't think I'm a Christian? Cool, luckily my membership card is not approved by YOU! (WINK)
