Obama Sets Ambitious Goal To Reduce U.S. Oil Imports

Herman Cain May Sneak Up On 2012 GOP Primary Field If He Doesn't Trip Himself Up First


The good thing about Cain is that he speaks with conviction and feelings. President Obama is yet to give a speech with either. He is too cardboard. Sure the media will jock-up all his speeches but to be honest President Obama seems to be afraid of being compared to MLK, Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton: the preachers speakers. The president'­s speeches are very demure. He is yet to strike a connection with the people. He is long on substance but no feelings. Instead he prefers being cool and that will only get you so far.

What's At Stake In The Massive Walmart Anti-Discrimination Case Before The Supreme Court


Too many people go to work at Wal-Mart with barely a high school degree and GED and expect to become CEO. Not that this can't happen, but Wal-Mart and other companies like it should be viewed as stepping stones especially­, if your intention is to become a millionair­e. "It ain't gonna happen at Wal-mart." Just part of that entitlemen­t element in society.



That all being said, I hope the claims are proven to be untrue.

Obama Libya Speech Strongly Defends Intervention (FULL TEXT)


This is the President many claimed was a change agent. This was the President who won the Noble Peace on the concept of what would be. This is the President many saw as being able to restore Americas image abroad. This is the President many said would put America back up front on even standing or above others. He was to restore the US. This is what we have. We must wish him well. He succeeds we succeed, but I have my reservatio­ns.

Why I Support President Obama's Decision to Invade Libya


Invade Libya?????­? Am I missing something? We did not invade Libya. Please stop with these false statement. The US is part of a coalition shared by the UN, France, China, Russia and Arab League. There is no invasion, but rather a humanitari­an effort and to enforce the no-fly zone. Don't get it confuse and no this isn't a matter of semantics. "Invade" should not be used.

Bob Herbert's Last NY Times Column: Pouring Money Into Another War, Not Jobs


This is exactly what I have been blogging about. Why would Bob or any other person in the media write or talk about jobs needed here and not a war after the fact? Think about it. Before we gave a helping hand to Libya all the talk was why are we doing anything to help the innocent in Libya? Why is the President dithering? We need to do something now. We should be looking at Syria? All these ridiculous questions on why? Not a word was said LOUDLY about putting the money into the US economy. Now that we are helping Libya some weeks later the question comes up. What the HECK is going on! I don't trust the America Media and neither should you on matters of our country. The media has an agenda to increase its viewership and nothing more.

Syria Troops Open Fire On Protesters, Witnesses Say


Well I doubt we have to worry about the US or any other Western country going to Syria. There's really nothing (oil or other natural resources) they want. The people be damned.



It all fairness Western media has tried to obtain visas to enter Syria and report (LOL!) on the events, but it seems they were denied. I guess the powers that be in the country doesn't want any part of the Western style reporting in their country.

Aaron Brown On Anderson Cooper: 'Keeping Them Honest' Is A 'Slogan,' Not Journalism


I didn't care for Aaron Brown when he was on CNN, but I have to agree with him on the above points. There is too much sensationa­lsm in the news today. It seems to have started during the Clinton years. Cable/netw­ork news and papers are trying to get one up on the other. They get a story and flavor it with their opinions as though it is news. They propose questions and then make it seems as though the people want to know and have asked the questions. We are left trying to figure it all out. Then there are some viewers who get caught up in the process and begain to think they are entitled to know certain things that are completely not news related. Case in point was it anyones business if then first Lady Hillary Clinton was mad at her husband over his affairs? Or if they were having sex after she became a senator? It things like this that have soured me and many others, those their voices are heard, on the credibilit­y of the news and those delivering­. I have been blogging this point for quite some time for I am extremely concerned at the direction our media is going. An institutio­n that has the ability to really delve into a story and report yet that don't . We have people giving the news who know nothing about journalism yet they think what they say is gospel. So sad.

Elizabeth Taylor's Funeral Held In Los Angeles, 15 Minutes Late


One of the things that stand out about Ms. Taylor is her unwavering friendship to Michael Jackson. Before his death, she at the age of 76, and not in the best of health, was preparing to fly to London with him to kick off his much talked about final concerts. Unfortunat­ely, the concert was not to be. Upon learning of her dear friend Michael's death, Ms. Taylor said she couldn't imagine a world or life without him. This is coming from a woman who stood next to Michael through all of his trials and tribulatio­ns and good times. While she didn't attend his memorial service in Los Angeles, she did attend his funeral. Though being a star herself, Ms. Taylor arrived on time to his funeral, which was held outside in temperatur­es ranging as high as 100 plus degrees. She waited patiently, for the services to start, which started late. She was gracious the entire time and took her seat with the other guest not asking for special attention. This to me is the sign of a loyal true friend.

Rest in peace sweet Elizabeth.

NATO Agrees To Take Over Command Of Libya No-Fly Zone, U.S. Likely To Remain In Charge Of Brunt Of Combat


Same story and lame headline and question. And if the US wasn't taking the lead in the brunt of the work the media would ask why not because the US is better equipped. It has become clear that some thing no one or other country can do it but the US. Arrogance of the American media. When we do take control, as I said early the question is then asked Why us and not another country. I hope the reader as seeing this contradict­ory played out on TV it is akin to a reality show gone bad! It makes you wonder if the American media is has the interest of the Viewers at heart, or are they only conerned with their opinions and DRAMA?! Again I see why Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Al Jazeer seems to be more accurate in their reporting (this is sad).



Over on CNN you have Anderson Cooper complainin­g that the Syrian government won't grant American journalist visa to the country to report on the semi uprising. CAN YOU BLAME them? They see the wack job you are doing else where causing discord. They don't want your manufactur­ed drama on their soil. Learn to report and not take sides and perhaps a visa will be granted.

Turkish TV: NATO To Assume Command Libya Operation


This is Excellent news! Now a number of things people should be asking the media. 1) Why weren't you guys reporting on a meeting by NATO to take over the mission in Libya?; 2) Why are you still questionin­g the US's role in removing Gahdaffi?; 3) In the same breath why are you reproting the President didn't ask Congress if the US should be in Libya 4) Why are you trying to confuse the American people?; 5) Why don't you just report the news and stay out of the commentary business?; 6) Are you the media abusing your freedom of the press rights?

'South Park' guys make 'really different' Broadway


Then call me uptight! I find the entire idea of the play repulsive and will not be patronizin­g it. Sure it will do well, by those who say it's a joke. Laugh! Well there is nothing funny about making fun of someone's religion, sexuality or behavior. What have we reduced ourselves to in America? Why ask? This is the country where networks are giving Charlie Sheen millions because they stand to make billions (after firing him and then rehiring him; he is a cash cow). Then too some years ago the revival of that play about Jews was on Broadway and made a modest sum of money.



Is our only form of entertainm­ent at the expense of others?

Jon Stewart Rips U.S. Attack On Libya: 'Don't We Already Have Two Wars?' (VIDEO)


Why want Stewart go after the media for pushing the US to step in and his followers who probably wanted us there to help bring democracy to the people in Libya.



What is all this talk about freedom and democracy anyway? Simply because the Western world have it doesn't mean it is for others. Some in the middle east have a different belief system. The West believes all are entitled to freedom as given by the creator. Which creator? The Middle East doesn't believe in the one creator of the West. Their system is based on religion and they like it that way. The West freedom isn't based on religion (so we like to believe), so where is all this coming from?



And by the way, France is taking the lead; the US only a follower as agreed by the UN and Arab League (not that it matters but a point worth noting).

Victoria Jackson Slams 'Glee,' Gays, Muslims In 'Showbiz Tonight' Appearance (VIDEO)

Let's face it Glee has an agenda on certain social issues. However, they must look at both sides of the spectrum to be fair. The creator himself, Ryan Murphy, recognized this and said he would and did include a christian element on the show, but it isn't as present as the other aspects.



Thinking one size fits all is a mistake. There will be and are others like Victoria waiting to speak out. Attempting to silence their voice by making them seem stupid will further alienate and cause division. Let us come together and reason.

A Christian Guide to Confronting End of Life Issues


Beautiful piece.



LaVerne, my sister, a sister, mother of two, daughter, aunt, friend and a fighter battled stage four lung cancer (non-smoke­r) for almost 9 years. Her battle ended the morning of her 44th birthday, October 11, 2010.



The night before she passed my family along with her friends celebrated her birthday with balloons, a cake and candles. We sung, laughed and reminisced about her life.



That next morning around 7:55 a.m. quietly and peacefully she left us.



Hearts were heavy, but the day of her funeral family and friends, dressed in pink and white (her favorite colors) to celebrate her life. During the celebratio­n uplifting songs, poems and speeches were performed. A saxophonis­t played "Gone Too Soon" by Michael Jackson. A choir performed "You are My Sunshine" by Maze and Franky Beverly and “Going Up Yonder” by Tramaine Hawkins.



The committal service, was equally celebrator­y. A saxophonis­t played “To God Be the Glory”. Her daughters and niece performed "I don't feel no ways tired" by Mary Mary. A soloist performed “We Shall Behold Him.”



It was a beautiful day. The sun lit up a bright sky. Before her body was committed, 44 pink and white balloons were released in honor of her years on earth and freeing her spirit to the sky.



While there is an emptiness in my families heart for our beloved LaVerne, we find comfort in the celebratio­n of life service we had in her honor.

Can you not just report? Egypt wasn't being liberated fast enough so you bitched about that. The Japanese weren't open enough for you so you moan on that? Now you bitch and moan on our position in Libya. And it's not a policy change it's merely and action decided upon by the UN and other countries.
