This is my last post on blogger

I've had so many problems with blogger within the last year that I think it is best that I move to another service. It pains me to change, but the interruption happens quite often and it is frustrating. I’ve also had other people tell me they can’t access my blog. I decided on Saturday morning that enough is enough when I was trying to publish a post that I had just written and couldn't, nor did I have access to my blog again. So, I moved to a new location...

The things people say...

Here is a very offensive editorial by Adele Ferguson. She thinks God used slavery to help blacks and we should be thankful that we are here in the U.S. She's also baffled why so many of her black brothers and sisters support the Democrats since she thinks they are responsible for our conditions. Wouldn't it have been easier for her to ask why we support the Democrats? It appears enough people complained about the article that it was pulled from circulation. However, not before it was copied, pasted, and emailed to several people/groups.

Maybe this woman is ignorant of history and doesn't know the conditions our ancestors endured aboard those slave ships. Men, women, and children were crammed into every available nook and cranny. They were denied adequate room, food, or breathing space. The stench was appalling. The atmosphere was so inhumane that many died before they ever set foot on shores of this promised land (some reports say the number that died were in the hundreds of million). And now someone callously say, "we should be thankful" because we were provided with clothes and a roof over her head. Very interesting indeed...

Local Stuff...

Kudos to Roland S. Martin since he was the first person to bring the Neil Steinberg saga to our attention. Today Steinberg apologized about his insensitive remarks concerning Stroger. I don't think the apology will be enough because some prominent black ministers are still angry about the whole ordeal and they may be calling for a boycott of the Sun-Times and possibly the Tribune. I heard this morning that the Tribune called the hospital where Stroger is being treated to get them to release their records. Apparently some people still don't believe Stroger is sick and want to verify his condition.

Excerpt from Steingberg's Column:

When I wrote Wednesday about Cook County Board President John Stroger, it was a mistake to focus purely on the political, and ignore the personal, the reality of a sick man going to the hospital. I'm sorry for that.

Can you believe that the former President, Bill Clinton, is endorsing John Stroger for President of the Cook County Board? He said if I were a Cook County resident, I would vote on Stroger. Stroger is an honest man. Here is a link to some of his accomplishments brought to you by the History Makers.

Cook County Board President

It is clear to the casual observer that Forest Claypool and his supporters are making this campaign (President of Cook County) about race.

Claypool is primarily appealing to the white community and to black conservatives that have a general disdain for the Democratic Party (period), while Stroger is trying to appeal to the sensibilities of all people. However, the reality is quite different. The signs for Claypool are in predominantly white communities, while the signs for Stroger are predominantly in the black community. Clearly, this suggests that Claypool has successfully divided at least the white and black votes.

It is unfortunate that the current board president, John Stroger, suffered a stroke recently. However, his campaign is still in full force. It's interesting to note that some people like this Chicago Sun Times Columnist, who incidentally is well known as a wife beater made light of Stroger's illness by saying he is trying to get sympathy votes.

Many black people are asking this idiot to apologize to Stroger. But he is adamant about his disdain for Stroger and feels he has nothing to apologize for. Anyway, Steinberg is a good example of the kind of person (Jew or otherwise) Farrakhan was talking about. This incident shows that black people need to pay closer attention to how others are treating them. The Black-Jewish relationship is being strained not by Farrakhan, but people like Steinberg.

A man with many talents...

This story is cute. At an annual roast, Obama takes potshots at Cheney and sings about his encounter with Sen. John McCain.

My favorite part: At the beginning of his remarks, Obama said, "the truth is, I'm terrified to be here,” "Not because you're such a tough audience, but because they're serving drinks and I'm standing about 30 yards from the vice president."

Cheney will never live this down...

Political Vandalism - Local Politics

Saturday was spent campaigning for Emanuel "Chris" Welch. I walked door-to-door giving out literature and talking to people about Welch. I asked property owners if I could place signs in their yards. I went to several apartment buildings and called a few mangers to see if I could display Welch's signs. One particular manager told me I could do whatever I liked. Naturally, I thanked him profusely. I strategically placed three signs on the property to get maximum exposure. Since I had already experienced Welch's sign being systematically removed, I decided I would retrace my steps. Wouldn't you know, after one hour, someone had already removed all the signs?

We rode around the neighborhood on Sunday to assess areas that we didn't personally cover and ran across a house that had several Welch’s signs torn in half. We took pictures. As we were taking the pictures, a red SUV came flying down the street and a man jumped out yelling what are you doing and identified himself as the property owner. We told him we are taking pictures of the Welch's signs that had been torn since we were wondering what had happened to the signs that had been removed in other areas. While we were talking, he told us that he works for Ike Caruthers, the alderman of the 29th ward, and all of a sudden, these Welch signs were appearing in the neighborhood and every time one is put up someone calls me. He went on to say - my phone is on 24 hours a day, so I know when his signs appear in this neighborhood. He said you can't put signs in people's yard without their permission. I told him every sign that is in people's yard, I personally asked the owners of the property for their permission. I said furthermore, I called a building manager on a certain property and the manager said you can add anything you want. I went back an hour later and someone had removed the signs. Therefore, we are taking pictures of this pile of signs that have been torn in half. By the time we finished talking to this man, his attitude had changed. He said - Welch's opponent is responsible for removing those signs (confirmed our suspicions). But, the real question is - why were they torn and left in this man's front yard? It appears ol' boy got caught with his pants down. We felt like those torn signs were a gift from the Gods.

These people are playing dirty...

Political Toilet Paper...

Curtesy of Proviso Probe:

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has attacked Harold Ford, Jr., the presumed Democratic nominee in Tennessee, as liking to live the good life on a website called, "Fancy Ford". The following questions were raised: What is the purpose of this advertisement? Who is the target audience? What is the message the GOP is hoping to sell? Is the attack racist? How so?
The attack on Ford (TN) may be racist, but what the GOP is saying is valid and I’m not surprise he is being attacked. I haven’t looked at the voting records lately of Ford, but I suspect, he must have deviated from supporting the Republicans on key issues or his services are no longer required. Ford is one of six members of the CBC that have deviated from their long-standing consensus. The rest are: Artur Davis (AL), David Scott (GA), who went to Congress as part of a white Republican Deal, Sanford Bishop (GA), Albert Wynn (MD), and William Jefferson (LA). All but Jefferson are members of the Democratic Leadership Council and/or the Blue Dog Coalition, vehicles for corporate funding and intrigue in the Democratic Party. According to Techpolitics, Ford ranked second in campaign contributions among Black House members ($1,344,398) right behind Charles Rangel ($1,446,027). Although Ford's voting record in the past was not as bad as Scott (GA), he must be deviating from the role the Republicans have for him to play in order for them to be attacking him in this manner. The amount of money he has received is old news. This should serve as a warning to all those who are willing to be bought, when your usefulness has ended, you will be discarded like soiled toilet paper.

Watch out - Artur Davis (AL), David Scott (GA), Sanford Bishop (GA), Albert Wynn (MD), William Jefferson (LA) - your turn is coming...

Aiding, abetting, harboring, encouraging illegals is a felony

This can cost you five years for each offense. This jail time is for anyone who gives any type of aid to illegal immigrants. This is a helluva bill...

Is the population prediction accurate?

Faheem asked an interesting question in his post "Future wars will be about European survival": Is Islam or Muslims the biggest threat to white supremacy or the biggest threat to the next form of world oppression that will replace white supremacy?

“In 2020, there will be one billion "fighting-age" men (ages 15-29) world-wide; only 65 million will be Europeans. At the same time, the Muslim world will have 300 million males, often with limited opportunities at home.”
I said: The Arabs are facing a serious problem too. They simply inbreed too much. They are encountering all types of serious mutations/birth defects. The more you inbreed, the weaker your offspring will be. Unless they stop, this will be their undoing. At some point, this will take a huge toll on viable offsprings in their society.

Marriages between relatives are widespread in the Middle East, particularly in Saudi Arabia, where a government study has found that 56.8% of all marriages are between first and second cousins or more distant relatives.
Unfortunately, Africa also has this problem and the consequences are just as devastating. So, when one looks at these population estimates, we must consider other variables that include any negative social behavior that are being practiced by these societies. I simply think, at the current rate of inbreeding that is occurring in the Arab and some of the African countries, they (particularly the Arabs) will not be a threat to anyone. They are going to marrying themselves into oblivion.

Future wars will be about European survival...

This is an interesting article that was found on Black Perspective & Introspection it is a nice sequel to the one where I talked about some interesting predictions.

Excerpt:
For some people it is hard for them to fathom white folk carrying out an act or taking a particular position because it is about their survival more than it is about the issue itself. One such issue that comes to mind is abortion, most people are under the impression that white folk anti-abortion stances is about their religious beliefs because they cover their arguments and oppositional stances in religious dogma, but what white folk fear more than anything is global annihilation and or marginalization.
This could explain why South Dakota passed this ridiculous law stating that a woman can only get an abortion if it necessary to save her life. The most ridiculous part of this law is that it prevents a woman from getting an abortion if she has been raped - even if the child has been conceived because of incest.

Contributions to House Leadership and Committee Chairs

This list of contributions by PACs to the House Leadership and Committee Chairs demonstrate that 1) we need money to buy Democracy and 2) it shows whose interests are being served by Congress.

Anti-Defamation League (ADL)

Can you believe the ADL is calling for the disbandment of the Governor's Commission on Discrimination and Hate Crimes because Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad will not denounce Farrakhan’s two minute remarks out of a 2 hour speech about the wrong doings in the world (period) and those who use religion to cover up their evil behavior? If the Jews wanted to deal with fairness, they had the opportunity to do so when they were part of the commission, but -- because they had no intention to be righteous or fair, they walked away. What they really wanted was to be able to continue their manipulation and intimidation of people to get their way. Something is inherently wrong with how the Jews act towards others.

Previously, Rhelios made a comment on this thread, "it's just funny to me that a story like this pits the "chosen" people versus the dispossessed". When he made this comment, I was thinking, "if the Jews are chosen to do anything it is to show the world how not to act". What kind of God sanctions behavior that does not support fairness, righteousness, and truth? The real issue is not about who’s right, but about what is right. Farrakhan was talking about people who uses their religion to cover up their evil deeds. These people are good examples. He was not talking about the so-called "righteous Jews" or for that matter "the righteous period". Why don't these people go and tuck their tails between their legs and leave the rest of us alone.

Even Father Michael Pflager of Chicago’s Saint Sabina church knows unreasonable behavior when he sees it. He said the same thing I did "good riddance". If this is how the Jews will act, then it is better that they are not on this council.

The Jews are going against anyone who has an opposing view of their desires and in some cases, they are willing to kill (Palestinians) or destroy the careers (Cynthia McKinney and Gus Savage) of those who get in their way. And now they have threatened the Governor of Illinois. They said we will remember you.

The world is a dangerous place with unreasonable people at the helm...
