In Response To Bank Foreclosure Sale Of Senator Clark Jenkins’ Property Postponed

First of all who gave John T. Walker editor of the Daily Southerner the authority to write this article because I know some folks are pissed with him? I am quite sure he will receive some very strong and harsh responses from writing this article. However if it was me or somebody that looks like me I bet they would say otherwise. Remember when Frankie Bordeaux ran against Jenkins during Jenkins last election? Bordeaux had some money issues with his business and Jenkins toasted him.

You see it is articles like this when you see where folks stand. The very folks who talk about Black folks on welfare and all the other negatives they say they are paying for through tax dollars. But when these articles arise these very folks are quiet as hell and/or quick to come to the defense of said party. It is articles like this that point out the double standards when it comes to Black and white.

First of all I question why was the foreclosure sale was postponed? Maybe it was the weather. But seriously why was it postponed because that was left out of the article?

I question why was the home included? Make wonder if the couple are together or are they separating, getting a divorce or what?

So was it postponed because he is white?

So was it postponed because he is a Senator?

I found it quite interesting that during the campaign season my Senator basically put up his own money to run to keep his office during election time. I don’t think that the Senator’s position is worth no more than around $25,000 a year so was it worth it to spend hundreds of thousands of his own money during election time?

Well I guess some things about this article and my concerns will go unanswered because ain’t nobody going to talk about this because it is not a welfare article and they don’t look like me.

I do want to leave this with you. This is a good article because this is not just an average person but a person who is in politics. No if that was certain folks it would not be in the paper however we should hold our elected officials accountable for their actions. When a person become a public official that means they become public.

So for those of you who support double standards, you need to take articles like this and learn from them. How many Black folks, folks on welfare that have acquired anywhere close to all of the property that my Senator has? How many Black folks and folks on welfare have abused as much money that my Senator has been able to obtain over the years?

Edgecombe social services director returns to post – Rocky Mount Telegram

An N.C. Superior Court Judge ruled this week that Edgecombe County must allow Marva Scott to return to work as director of social services while awaiting a hearing on an appeal.

During a hearing Monday in N.C. Superior Court in Tarboro, Alma Hinton, senior resident Superior Court judge for the First Division Court of North Carolina, denied Edgecombe County’s motion to stay. If granted, the stay would have allowed the county to hold off on reinstating Scott until the county’s appeal is resolved. (More)

GOP leaders insist no overhaul needed – Politico

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Republican Party honchos who huddled here for their first big gathering since the election devoted lots of time talking about the need to welcome Latinos and women, close the technology gap with Democrats and stop the self-destructive talk about rape.

But the party’s main problem, dozens of Republican National Committee members argued in interviews over three days this week, is who delivers its message and how, not the message itself. Overwhelmingly they insisted that substantive policy changes aren’t the answer to last year’s losses. (More)

Today January 26, 2013 Anniversary Date 26 Years At Honeywell And 26 Years Stopped Drinking

On January 26, 1987 I began working at Bendix Inc. assembling and testing fuel controls that goes on the F-15 and F-16 Fighter Jets for the military. Several years ago Bendix Inc. purchased Honeywell Inc. and they changed the name of the company to Honeywell Inc. I love my job.

But also today is the grand opening for my oldest daughter’s business Nalashe Royale Boutique & Spa. She will also be 26 years old on April 1.

I also quit drinking in January.

I am blessed and wouldn’t give nothing for my journey. I have had some ups and downs but I am still here.

Thank you Jesus cause I could be unemployed and/or lying in my grave.

Thank you baby girl India Matita Dancy for calling me reminding me of today.

The North Carolina Rural Education Working Group (NCREWG) met on Saturday September 15th at the Cliffdale Public Library Fayetteville NC Cumberland County at 12 noon.

Louise Roseborough secretary of the NCREWG and lives in Fayetteville NC hosted the meeting. The food catered by Margie’s Catering was delicious. Thank you Ms. Roseborough for a wonderful day in Fayetteville.

The meeting was called to order by Chair Anthony R. Clark. He gave an overview of the organization and why we were in Fayetteville. He then asked the host Roseborough to give a briefing of why we were in Fayetteville also.

Anthony then asked Page McCullough an invited guest to give a briefing on her work. She shared information on the Privatization Advocacy Groups and Charter Schools and the Impact on Public Schools in NC.

There were several elected officials present Elmer Floyd NC House 43, Wade R. Fowler Jr. Fayetteville City Council Member District 8, Robert (Ben) Clark III Senator-elect  NC Senatorial District 21 Raeford NC, Alicia Chissom and Carrie Sutton Cumberland County School Board Members and several other concerned citizens.

There was much discussion about Charter Schools and the Impact on Public Schools. Some felt that there needs to be all types of schools as long as they are effective. However some felt that the Charter Schools are taking away from the Public Schools and why not spend that money making Public Schools better. One person got it right there are going to be more black church and non-white children who are the majority of the children in the Public Schools so they are not going to get the funding needed.

And then it was time to break to eat. 

There were several children present and 3 of them spoke and said they enjoyed the meeting and now knew to speak up about certain issues and they knew they had a resource to contact about issues. Their main concern was about not having enough time to prepare for certain test and how children are expected to learn because some children having different learning abilities.

The following persons were elected to serve in the following roles for the next 2 years.

Chairperson – Anthony R. Clark  
Vice Chair – Curmilus Dancy

The fight to prevent hostile takeovers of public education goes national–PoliticusUSA

The fight to save public education and retain local control of those schools against hostile takeover attempts (such as the current takeover attempt in Michigan by our very own Gov. Rick Snyder explained in more detail here from an earlier post) has now attracted nationwide attention. On Tuesday, Jan. 29, representatives from school districts around the country who find themselves under siege in much the same way as Detroit Public Schools are joining together to participate in a hearing in Washington D.C. to air their grievances at the highest levels and make sure their story gets told – and acted upon.

What Does Real Patriotism Look Like? The Big Slice

Response: I agree with this article very well written. It is sad how many will disrespect “Our” President just because they don’t like him. I too respected all the previous Presidents before him. They are not patriotic they are cowards but the real word for them is they are “ignant!”

I was thinking about something someone said to me today. They said, regarding President  Obama, ‘I would never want his job, I cannot imagine the pressure he must be under’.

I was going to say I agree, but to be honest, I don’t feel bad for him. He took this job and he knew that running a country was probably the hardest thing a person could ever do. History has shown us that no matter how young you are going in, you will leave an old man. (More)

Breaking News: Eric Mansfield Will Not Seek The Chair Position Of The North Carolina State Democratic Party

When I announced for Chair of our great Democratic Party I said that we must develop a strategy that would lead to greater mobilization, inspiring messaging, increased fundraising and a Party that was mended.

Over the past several weeks I was able to speak with many of you. I have heard of our barriers to success and challenges that we must overcome. I have heard exciting ideas about how we can recruit and train the next generation of leaders. I have heard innovation solutions that would allow us to make the volunteer experience meaningful so that we might mobilize even more of our fellow North Carolinians.

The passion for change that I saw in each of the Democrats that I met in Wilmington, Greenville, Greensboro, Raleigh, New Bern, Winston Salem and other locations in between inspired me. The wisdom I heard over the phone from Democrats in Canton, Clinton, and Chadbourn offered hope.

You all reminded me of the reasons that I entered politics in the first place. I believed then that we might be able to craft a new kind of politics that allows for disagreements without being disagreeable, a new kind of politics that understands that we can have our principles without being bound to destroy those who disagree with us, and that we can have serious debates about our direction without undue criticism. When some people offered negative attacks in recent weeks, many more of you spoke up to say that our Party is better than this.

I know now, as I knew in December when I announced my candidacy, that our Party has a future that is far brighter than the stormy present might suggest. We remain the Party of big ideas, bold ambition, and meaningful action.

That sense of optimism is why it brings my family and I great sadness to announce that I must end my campaign for North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman effective immediately. As many of you know my mother has developed a rapidly deteriorating disease which requires my full attention. After my Dad died at 42, my mother sacrificed her career to make sure that my sister and I would succeed. What she couldn’t provide with money she made up with love, care, and inspiration. I believe that my greatest call is to honor her sacrifice and be there unequivocally to ensure her comfort and happiness as she navigates this difficult course.  I know many of you are silently and gracefully facing these difficult decisions with your parents, we will be praying for you and ask that you pray for our family.

As I leave this fight, please know that I intend to continue to work with all of you to rebuild our Party and reclaim the future of North Carolina. President Obama inspired us all on Monday when he said, “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths –- that all of us are created equal –- is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”

We must continue to work for equality, freedom, and progress. We must fight for the rights of women, Latinos, African Americans and our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters. We must stand up for the children who can not stand up for themselves, give a voice to the voiceless, and offer hope to the hopeless.

I look forward to working with our next Chair, whomever that might be, every member of the SEC, our elected leaders, and everyone in between so that we can build a Party which mends itself, develops a message that inspires, raises the resources that we need to invest in our infrastructure, and ultimately mobilizes to victory in 2014 and beyond. Please stay in touch.

Best,
Eric
