(ThyBlackMan.com) Lebron James now has the ring he’s been seeking for a long time.  But there is another way in which he stands out from the mass of Black athletes: he is harnessing his own financial prowess instead of passing it all across to the white corporate establishment. (More)

Our communities won a great victory when the United States Supreme Court ruled to uphold the Affordable Care Act championed by President Barack Obama.


Nothing is more important than the health of our friends, loved-ones, and the very communities we live in and serve each and every day.


The Affordable Care Act is already working to improve the lives of all Americans.  Now, insurance companies can no longer deny health coverage because of preexisting conditions or place lifetime limits on benefits.  Our nation’s seniors now receive a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs and also receive free preventative health services as well as a free annual wellness visit.  Young adults can now remain on their parents’ insurance until their 26th birthday.  And some four million small businesses across this country can receive tax credits for offering health insurance to their employees.  But on Wednesday, Republicans in Congress will vote to repeal these vital reforms that benefit North Carolina families.


I invite you to join me in a telephone town hall on Wednesday, July 11 at 6:00 p.m. to answer your questions on the many ways in which healthcare reform will help us provide every American with the care they deserve.  To participate in the town hall, please call 1-(877)-229-8493 at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday. When prompted, enter PIN number: 110391 to be instantly connected.


I look forward to speaking with you then.

Allen West: Social Security Is ‘A Form Of Slavery’ – HuffPost

Response: Damn I get so sick and tired of ignance. "Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!" Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Sunday called Social Security "a form of modern, 21st century slavery."

Responding to a question about the increase of Americans getting Social Security benefits, he said, "that is an unfortunate consequence of failing economic policies coming from the president so that now when people are running out of the unemployment benefits, now they are looking toward going on Social Security disability… so once again we are creating the sense of economic dependence, which to me is a form of modern, 21st century slavery."
