The Act That Could’ve Saved the American Society H.R.2847


It is not an Executive Order nor Action signed by President Obama! It is an appropriation revision act amending the 1986 code “Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act.” The law passed in both the House and Senate back in Sept 2010…Touché’ for Democracy!

What is wrong with Democracy working in America these days? It appears to have lost favor in America since November 2008, when the majority of voting Americans elected its first non-white President.

I read H.R.2847 for myself. Every literate American should do so and for those who can not read have someone read it to you.

Of course, it turns out not the doom and gloom–American dollar deflator professed by TEAGOP misinformation fear rhetoric, and obstructionism; too many Americans swallow on a daily basis these past six years. Their political tactics are designed to exploit and manipulate the average Joe Americans learned prejudice against other fellow Americans not of their race, creed, and religion.

The average Joe (Black, White, or Brown) does not have a foreign bank account or trust set up in other countries to escape income taxes. We pay our fair share of taxes with each hard-earned payroll to raise healthy families. In addition, secure a sound future in a country the world people want to come and become citizens.

Yea its true and rightfully so, Joe feels over taxed because Joe knows for a certainty that Zillionaires hide their money off shore, so not to pay taxes on income generated mostly from Joe’s hard labor which Joe’s don’t mind because hard work in the past has rewarded in the American society. Nevertheless, Joe’s have felt the squeeze on their hard earn dollars. His hard-earned dollars have not kept pace with inflation the past 30 years or so. Joe’s problem is he is not sure whom to blame; self, the Govt, the rich, or maybe in Joe’s mind, it is the poor at fault for America’s woes today.

Here comes Obama in 2008. Somebody or something said blame America’s woes on Obama. Joe’s accepts the finger-pointing, hook line and sinker. He will do for now until “hopefully” America comes out of this great recession that is smothering the economy. However, somebody or something knows exactly what is at fault for America present economic woes. Good old fashion “BANKER’s GREED” is in full and pouring its abundant misery on the entire global society. However, here in America, politics has cast its first elected non-White President as responsible for the past 30 to 40 year catch-up economic crash.

Therefore, I have been seriously confused these past 6 years since Obama took office. The racism and hatred directed towards his administration, him and his family from TEAGOP members and supporters does not confuse me (I expected this type of hostile political and societal environment for Americas first Non-White President), but the average American Joe level of gullibility is easily sway by stupid misinformation designed to turn them against American democracy is astounding.

Over all American’s issues, we need to stop acting like children fighting over whose best at coloring with crayons, or whether to color the paper horse black or white.

If America is destined to fall, it will not be the powers and military force of a foreign country. It will self-destruct from within as it is doing. America’s enemies only have to be patient, and watch American citizens, rich and poor, turn on each other, and tear down the country they swear they love.

Why We Get Together?


How much of what ails us today as a society could be remedied by some old fashioned love and togetherness? The kind we share at the “get-together.”

Its a beautiful Spring day, Im sitting out on the front porch watching life on Center St. Milwaukee unfold; with some family members when one of my nieces says, ” Lets get together for some of Yo Mama-in-law’s to-die-for Salmon Croquettes?” “Cool,” I said. “Let me holler at her and make sure she’s up to it.” Well about a week passes and then I text and inbox everybody that next Sunday we were going to have a Salmon Croquette Bruch at my house around 11 a.m. and Mama going to do the cooking, but we have to buy erthing, you know, pot-luck style. Well, that Sunday all the family shows up. Salmon croquettes, bacon, eggs,sausage, grits, rice, onions and potatoes, and you know we had biscuits and Alaga syrup. If you under thirty, you don’t know nothing about Alaga. We ate, drank and commensurated like we do. When the smoke cleared, Salmon juice was all on the wall, in the flower pots everywhere. Im Just kidding, but you get my point, we ate our backs out. All while we were catching up, sharing stories and reminiscing folks kept asking, “what we getting together for?” The answer kept coming back “just because we love each other.” So After we ate and began to recover from the food-coma that Black folks go into when they eat good food. Folks made them some plates to go, I led in the reading of the African Pledge, My sister, Minister Michele, whose not a real minister, we just call her that because she prays and ministers everywhere she goes, led us in a beautiful prayer and my Mama-in-law chided us to stay free and be self-determining. The folks who were still at the house, on couches, in chairs in all positions and degrees of half sleep, began to reflect on the day. Everyone said they had a ball and that statement we always make “WE HAVE TO DO THIS MORE OFTEN”
The point is, this writer thinks, the family is the solution to a lot of the problems of the world today. Next time you chilling with family and friends think about and be grateful for each other and remember the only reason we need for coming together is the fact that if we don’t come together we will perish separately. Peace.

WOW!….Only in America…Where Politics Breeds Arrogant Boldness!


Only in America can a convicted felon run for public office. Talk about putting a “Fox in charge of the Hen house.”  Then again, the prison Gary George served his time, Federal Prison Camp, Duluth Minn, is more like a long-term stay at a golf resort. Also, Gary George once released broke the stereotype that “X Felons are consider “unemployable” in Americas workforce. Gary George intellectually is far from being what is consider “dummies.” .Gary George_safe_image http://www.wisn.com/politics/gary-george-explains-why-hes-running-for-congress/26332574#!UV7Z2.

Gary made a bold attempt in 2008 to have his law license reinstated, but a lower Court and upper Supreme Court determined he had yet, learned the lesson, “Foxes should not get caught in the Hen house.” But in 2010 the Courts determined Gary learned the lesson, and reinstated his Wisconsin Bar Law license, see link   http://host.madison.com/news/local/crime_and_courts/state-court-reinstates-gary-george-s-law-license/article_41a2a7e0-cc9f-11df-bc34-001cc4c03286.html

America after all said and done, does forgive convicted felons. At least if convicted of what is socially considered a “white-collar crime.” Notice Gary George above photo…He is wearing a white-collar.

The question for voting residents in Wisconsin Congressional 4th District is; If elected will Gary George do better than the incumbent Congresswoman Gwen Moore representation these past 9 years? Especially in light of Huffington Post, recent “dark exposure” reporting about Congresswoman Moore covert corporate stooges role for Wall Street…see link.. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/27/congressional-black-caucus-wall-street_n_5399290.html?fb_action_ids=780827855261345&fb_action_types=og.shares&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582.

My God she’s a Democrat…I know!, Go figure! Have you read a public response from Congresswoman Moore. Maybe she hoping it will just go away then she can continue her corporate stooges role by operating under the wire of scrutiny which is highly practiced in Milwaukee, WI, by Elected Democratic Leadership. Especially, down town in City Hall, (Mayor Tom Barrett and other Elected City Council members present and former elect’s.

I stated Gary George is far from being not smart. More than likely he sees (Congresswoman) Gwen Moore as a lame incumbent duck  for this fall hunting season rather Congressional Election Season. We all take calculated risk unknowingly and knowingly in our lives. But American Politics is control by the “Good Old Boy’s Club,” and it has a long history of secrets hidden behind closed doors where political deals and compromises are create.

Unknowingly many Professional Black politicians since the 1970s have had limited membership privileges. Black Politian’s knowingly aware of their limited privileges in the “club,” are what referred to as a “Sell Out” by America’s Black politically aware masses. Up until America Elected its first Black President into the Oval Office in 2008 (Hurrah) Black Politian’s knew this seat was off-limits and those Black Politian’s that indulged in running for the seat in the Oval Office, seem to have been symbolic campaigns to say the least.

Unseen political back door deals with Corporate America often come under the public eye of scrutiny because in many of these deals lines between legal and illegal remain obscure until State Courts, DOJ or a Congressional Committee investigations is launch proceeding reports, such as, the Huffington Post “detailed” report about Congresswoman Moore apparent conflicting political relationships with Wall Street Banks and Corporates… linked to this report by, Tony Muhammad.
