Just Gonna See How It All Unfolds, Hope To Be In The Land Of The Living In November

Elections 2012

I have never seen so much disrespect for a black man in authority in all of my life.

It is a damn shame that some folks have been able to get away with saying and doing whatever they like when it comes to disrespecting the black man.

It is sad how some folks whom call themselves community/political leaders, spiritual leaders and others whom say they are our brothers keeper but sit back and let mess happen without speaking out.

I read a lot of stuff local/state newspapers, blogs, facebook and I look at how people will respond to things that are not controversial but will not touch things that I feel we should be open and honest about. But then they get mad with me because I will tell it. Yep going to put it out there because people need to know. It is good for the soul.

I am not afraid to take a stand so therefore I am not afraid to walk alone. I will not walk beside scared damn folks because they are dangerous. “If You Are Scared, Say it!” and shut the hell up and get the hell out of my way.

I am reminded of a couple of quotes:

"I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." – Elie Weisel

"Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it politic? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular- but one must take it simply because it is right." : Martin Luther King Jr. 1929-1968

So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men: Voltaire. François Marie Arouet (1694-1778)

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been so credulous: Carl Sagan

"One of the world’s greatest problems is the impossibilty of any person searching for the truth on any subject when they believe they already have it." –Dave Wilbur

""If a baseball player slides into home plate and, right before the umpire rules if he is safe or out, the player says to the umpire – ‘Here is $1,000.’ What would we call that? We would call that a bribe.

If a lawyer was arguing a case before a judge and said, ‘Your honor before you decide on the guilt or innocence of my client, here is $1,000.’ What would we call that? We would call that a bribe.

"But if an industry lobbyist walks into the office of a key legislator and hands her or him a check for $1,000, we call that a campaign contribution. We should call it a bribe." : Janice Fine – Dollars and Sense magazine 

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph: Haile Selassie

Deals marked end of legislative session – News & Observer

The pace of deal cutting in the last days of the legislative session rivaled the action on a car lot as millions in tax credits, money for state agencies, and extra days off for state employees won speedy approval as lawmakers worked to pass controversial bills.

The aisle-crossing votes that helped override Gov. Bev Perdue’s vetoes of the state budget and fracking law appeared to be helped by $60 million for the film industry and vacation days for state employees that made it into end-of-session catch-all bills. (More)

Sprint Hotspot On My Phone Wouldn’t Go Anywhere Without It

I just love it access to the worldwide web 24-7 anywhere anytime.

I can sit in my car during my work lunch break and get on the net. I can ride down the highway and get on the net. I can go any place that may not have public internet access and I can get on the net. Sitting in the mall on my laptop via my HTC Android that has the capacity to allow up to 8 users. Damnit I love it.

I am sitting in the mall on my laptop via my HTC while the family window shop. I would be crazy as hell if I didn’t have this luxury. This is not bad at all for $29.00 a month especially when I use it nearly every day.

I Am A Blogger, Reporter, Messenger, Listener, Videographer, Photographer And More. I Am Quite Sure You Have A Title For Me As Well But . . .

But that is okay because I know who I am and whose I am so it does not matter what title you give me. You see it is up to me to accept it. Well!

Since I am all the above and report on what is going on around me, I refuse to not report on some of my personal happenings that I choose to share with others. You see I can do that because I am in control of The DCN News Blog/Online TV so I control the keyboard.

There will be times when others may not like what I report but it does not matter. Always remember you have options and if you don’t know what they are then just ask and I will tell.

“I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest.” The quote goes for family, associates and others as well.

You have a blessed day ya hear!

I Totally Agree With Grace L Galloway On Her Facebook Comment About Rep. Larry Kissell

Response: It is a damn shame to call yourself a Democrat but do not stand on Democratic issues. I would love to know why his ignant a… has gone on record saying he will not endorse the President. So if all that you have posted is true then he needs to switch parties.

I am a precinct chair and I am sick and tired of ignant a… Democrats.

Larry Kissell has stated publicly that he WILL NOT ENDORSE PRESIDENT OBAMA and that he will not be attending Convention this September. He also said he will vote to repeal Affordable Care Act. This after he voted to cite AG Eric Holder for contempt of Congress on some cockamaimy excuse.

Here is MY official comment. We are told as Chairs that we have to support the Democratic ticket regardless of the person on the ticket. I have been taken to task by the District Chair for my stance against Kissell in the past and stood my ground then. I will stand my ground again now.

I WILL NOT ENDORSE LARRY KISSELL in the 8th Congressional District race. If anyone wishes to make a complaint to the Council of Review – please be my guest. I cannot support someone who does not support my President. End of story. I will be writing in Bill Hefner’s name come November. He was the last true Democrat and representative of the 8th District.

And yes, I know Bill Hefner is dead – been dead a while. I cannot vote for a Republican and intend to vote for a Democrat – even a dead one.
