As we go into the fall most of us look at the jobs situation as bleak if not dismal in this country. Unemployment in the City of Newark is at least 25 to 40 % on the surface. Although the national average is considerably lower at 9.1 it still equates to unemployment. Collectively as a whole the nature or our positon in this country concerning umemployment is basically our own doing. Looking back to the end of the Clinton administration this nation along with the cites enjoyed a modest increase in jobs. During the election of 2000 our nation was hijacked and put under seige by a conserative agenda to dismiss the progressive movement in this country at the expense of the Bush family and there revenge on Saddam H. Our priorties shifted along with the elected officals by way of a criminal move from the Supreme Court. It has not been right since. As a result this nation has not had an increase in jobs for over a decade. The point that I am making is that we the people are responsible for this. If we spend as much time scrutinizing elected officials as much as we do entertainers and reality disfunction on television we would not be at this place. Looking at poll numbers here recently we find disfavor with our current President. Why? As far as I am concerned he has done more for the rights of the working and middle class in his term than the previous had done during his eight years in office. Understand he is not the perfect answer concerning the jobs situation but the fact of the matter is that he is still President. Those elected officials who have prided themselves with the destruction of the Obama presidency will eventually bring down this nation. Realizing that a house divded can not stand I understand the President's position to try and mediate this political catastrophe from the middle and as a result he is damned if he do and damned if he don't. The jobs situation will not get better in this country if we continue to neglect the issue. My hope this evening is that President Obama's plan is one that will get the ball rolling. Nevermind that the Chinese can take 300,000 of there citizens out of poverty to the middle class in the last two years at the expense of the American consumer isn't encouraging. Instead of creating markets for ourselves we spend to much time celebrating celebrity and reality disfunction instead of opportunites for American entreprenures . It is not the President's job to elect officials to the houses of congress that right belongs to the people. Lets become more pro active towards the process and eliminate these harbingers who disquise themselves as representives for the people with leaders who will represent this nation as a whole...

Inspired by James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, a collection of notes and letters written by Baldwin in the mid-1970s.[6] The documentary I Am Not Your Negro includes some of Baldwin's thoughts on the lives and deaths of his close friends and civil rights leaders Medgar Evers (assassinated in 1963), Malcolm X (assassinated in 1965), and Martin Luther King Jr. (assassinated in 1968). In the documentary, the voice of Samuel Jackson softly reading James Baldwin's notes clarify his intention in writing this manuscript: "I want these 3 lives to bang against and reveal each other, as in truth they did, and use their dreadful journey as a means of instructing the people whom they loved so much...and for whom they gave their lives..." [taking on "the lies and the hope of a nation"].One of the most interesting revelations about this documentary it reveals the present day  America. Our suppose to be diverse society still struggles with the race and class ,rich and poor, good and evil and most of all reverence to God. The day when all of us can firmly stand on the power of God's word then and only then will we live. In the 42 years since Mr Baldwins manuscript the formula necessary to make ths diverse nation palatable (an action or proposal, acceptable or satisfactory)has eluded us by way of our arrogance, fear and greed. Our narcissistic (infated since of self importance) disorder that is present in some of our politics and culture tend to remove us from the love necessary to heal this nation of its ills. May God have mercy on our souls.

10 March 2020 - Covid 19- BLO

When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. ........................................................................................................................……….. Revelation 6:7-8 Wow this passage of the word of God provides us with a sign and declaration that He will devote a quarter of the world to death and hell and the grave at this present time. With all of this he is presenting an image to the world to get us to change our minds. According to His wisdom He uses His displays of power justly over all. Merciful towards the good and with patience or longsuffering towards his enemies.(non believers). Understand and know that the challenges we see in the earth are there to get our attention. Amen

This dude is one of the funkiest musicians who navigated the funk era (1968 -1980)and also such a great pianist. Very good lyricist anddynamic performer. He deserves an all time statuete for one of the greatest muscians ever. 


Brotherly Love

August 4 2009-Love

Born into a world that places an emphasis on self (narcisism) the perception of our existence is filtered and blocked by motives that are self defeating. Our Lord places an emphasis on loving your neighbor like a brother. The apostle Paul writes in Romans 12:10 "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; ".There are times when loving your brother can be the most challenging test to our faith. When we remove self and allow Christ to sit on the throne miracles occur. Those challenging issues become shouts of praise. Honor and love one another and allow Christ to use your example for his glory Amen

While visiting St Louis Missouri my brother and I made a pit stop at Calecos up the street from Busch Stadium downtown. The resturant had a pleasant atmosphere where we interviewed a number of staff members concerning wearing masks. Very interesting response for Damon the busguy who regardless of the mandate he was going to wear a mask . He had not suffered any loss to Covid 19 and wearing a mask regardless was going to give him the best chance. The waitress in the image was ok without the mask but concerned in her work enviornment because of her interaction with customers. 

The overall consensus is that wearing a mask is determined on the individual and not through a mandate.

The man and woman in this image were on there way home to New Jersey. Struck a conversation with them to the reality of the Covid 19 pandemic in a academic manner. The pandemic was real to them  except in the media it was exaggerated. They believed in wearing mask concerning the enviornment and circumstances centered around certain activity. The wife was a Rutgers University professor who was encouraged by the vaccine  and had a hope to return to the classroom in the fall of 2021. very kind and nice people.   

Black Lives Matter

Tuesday June 16 2020 Life/Politics

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
2 Genesis 7
In this passage of scripture which is the foundation of the major faiths in the world suggest that the breath of life which we all have is presented and produced by God. As men we are granted with the purpose and power to protect, guard and take dominion over everything that God has created. (Genesis 1:27). There was no instruction to destroy what He created which includes other men. All of us who are blessed with darker colored skin who are decedents of Africa have meaning to. In other words BLACK LIVES MATTER. The images in the world over the last four hundred years seem to indicate that men of African descent are animals who are not worthy of God's original intentions for man ; to have dominion over His creation and to be fruitful and multiply. Over the past four centuries the intentions of the Europeans who have inhabited the Americas is to take away and tramp on all of the God given rights to all of the decedents of Africa who were brought to become there servants and property. The very nature of their actions is still with us and present today. The evil of the European descendants to African men and women is deeply inherited in their souls here in America. May God have mercy on their souls. Amen.

Living Water

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 -Spiritual Jesus the Christ

My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:38 As we turn over another year and move into the new I have found that it is necessary to see the future in a positive and hopeful light. All of the years of my life previous to this one offer a perspective that speaks to the true nature of the human experience. In that experience for me personally there have been many challenges. Choices and decisions made that illustrate a life with some extreme highs and lows. It is during these times I have come to depend on the “Living Water” to nourish and fill my cistern (reservoir) with fresh and new living water. Visiting the scripture in the book of John the woman at the well encounters our Lord. As he ministers to this Samaritan woman he gives a very interesting response. In it he exposes His truth concerning the gift of God as it relates to himself and the value of the “Living Water” which is presented through Him. In his answer to the woman Jesus illustrates the value of receiving his water. John 4: 14 says, “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst: but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. Let this new year start out with the water of everlasting life. Presented to the woman at the well it is also available to us. Notice that this woman was not aligned with the Jewish faith. She was a Samaritan. Regardless of where you are in your fallen state allow the Lord of glory to deposit His “Living Water” in your life. Repair that broken cistern( repent) so that he can fill you reservoir with the water essential for life. It provides the nutrients that are necessary to carry you through your most challenging times. Amen He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water..........................John 7:38
