My goal is helping children from every race, every class…







My goal is helping children from every race, every class, irrespective of where they were born or their circumstances, and help as many as I can to obtain a proper education, for that will be their Passport that would take them through their sojourner’s life!

“The real function of power and the order it creates is the liberation of men and women to think and be and make the most of themselves!

“When we educate a man we educate an individual, when we educate a woman, we educate an entire family!”

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”

(Emily Dickinson)

“Let not your place be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat!”

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again.

There is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” [Theodore Roosevelt]

Mitt Romney doing the Tango for Cinco de Mayo!

Perceived Dialogue between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, when Santorum endorsed Romney!

Mitt: My wife wants to put blue drapes in the Oval Office but I want pink.

Rick: You are measuring drapes already?

Mitt: Yep! I am going to win because I am taking credit for the survival of the Auto Industry and Fox News said I have got a point.

Rick: You have no shame Mitt; you said Obama should have allowed them go Bankrupt. Even Al Qaida doesn’t think Fox News is real News!

Mitt: You are right Rick, but come to think about it, I only released “one” tax return and no one has demanded that I release any more. Wow, lucky me, because those returns would bury me.

Rick:  But that doesn’t mean Obama wouldn’t demand that you do!

Mitt: The difference between the both of us is;

Dishonesty is my game
And I have no shame,
Lies filled to the brim
That’s how I am going to win!

President Obama; [DOMA] Defense Of Marriage Act; Gay Rights!

After being part and parcel of what eight years of Republican Rule [2001-2008] did to our country, catapulting us into deep and unforgiving waters, why would you want the White House, {President Obama}, to embrace Vice President Biden’s comment on the Gay Marriage issue.

Even a not so bright person could see farther than the advocacy of the extreme left! Obama needs every vote apart from the Gay Rights Group to win a second term. Should the President embrace the demise of “DOMA” [Defense of Marriage Act], he would be handing over the White House come November to the Republicans that would undoubtedly take us backwards rather than continue on the forward march, irrespective of how slow one may judge the recovery. Yes American is changing and in the not too distant future we would get there, allowing people to marry whom ever they so desire, but we are not there yet. [The polling data is crystal clear that the majority hasn’t accepted this inevitable fact.]

Maybe I am just another fool but so be it, because I do believe that once President Obama secures his second term, he would take on the phenomenal legislations even more so than he did with the Health Care Reform Act; Financial Reform and the other necessary reforms, to put not only our economy on a more progressive part, but to also put our country back on the right course, from a path of hate and fear to a more inclusive and tolerant society.

The President is dealing with a Right Wing Congress whose only goal is to unseat Obama in November, they do not care about you or our country, their single objective is to regain control of the white house so that Mitt Romney can rubber stamp their agenda which is; “to give another 2.3 billion dollar tax cut on top of the already existing Bush 1.6 trillion dollar tax cuts and that somehow, the 1% accumulation of more wealth, would trickle down to the middle-class and the less fortunate in our society.”

This voodoo economics inception came from Ronal Reagan for whom so many to this day view as some type of Greek god, when in fact, Reagan took a 930 Billion dollar national debt and turned it into 2.7 trillion debt at the time he left office. Reagan deregulated the Savings & Loan Banking Institutions, allowing people like Neil Bush [George W. H. Walker son and others, to pilferage the Savings & Loan to the tune of 1.5 trillion dollars at the cost of the tax payers.

However, the problems are the same with the extremists’ right and left wing, when it comes to The Public At Large; The Media and the Politicians. They just can’t seem to ascertain that to Govern; said governance has to be for the most part, the “middle of the road!”

David Gregory – “You aren’t any Tim Russet! Meet The Press April 15, 2012

As an ardent follower of meet the press for decades, NBC replacing deceased Tim Russet with David Gregory is one of the bigger errors in a long line of errors by NBC and its senior management. Perhaps NBC passing over people like Andrea Mitchell is due in part to the still yet, chauvinistic mental state of inept men who believe that somehow women are second-class citizens. That aside, let us go to the facts on April 15, 2012.

I am paraphrasing in the statements below and also inputting the actual figures to emphasize the reality of where we were at the end of 2008 to where we are today, 2012. [You can watch the April 15, 2012 or read the transcript at www.meetthepress.com or www.msnbc.com ]

Mr. Gregory’s first guest was Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.  One of Mr. Gregory’s statements to Mr. Geithner was;

Gregory: Under the Bush administration the National Debt increased about five (5) trillion dollars during Bush’s eight (8) year Presidency; however, under President Obama, the National Debt has increased five (5) trillion dollars in Obama’s first term.

Geithner; David, your statement is misleading. Under President Obama the five (5) trillion dollar National Debt increase, only twelve percent (12%) was due to the Obama Administration Policies. [That is six hundred billion dollars] The remainder of the increased four trillion four hundred billion dollars was due to Obama’s predecessor’s huge tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that wasn’t paid for and two wars that wasn’t paid for.

[Please note that unpaid bills by the Bush or any previous Administration has to be paid by whomever, Republican or Democrat that assumes the Office of the Presidency, along with Congress.]

Now comes the hypocrisy or lack of experience as a “Moderator.”

Mr. Gregory’s next guests were, Congresswoman – Michele Bachmann and New York Senator – Kristen Gillibrand.

Mr. Gregory directed his first remarks to Mrs. Bachmann in regards to the state of the economy; jobs; the national debt and the likes;

Mrs. Bachmann like a run-away-train went on and on and on, never once interrupted by David Gregory or Mrs. Gillibrand making insane statements like she always does, about how President Obama is a total failure and that Obama ran up the National Debt five trillion dollars in less than four years. Never once did David Gregory stopped her or even input what Mr. Geithner had just told him.

David Gregory then asked Mrs. Gillibrand to comment on what Mrs. Bachmann had just said. Mrs. Gillibrand was just seconds into her comments when Mrs. Bachmann jumped in and interrupted Mrs. Gillibrand. David Gregory just sat there with his mouth opened like a lost puppy, allowing Mrs. Bachmann to spew false narcissistic poisonous deluge.[This particular episode of Meet The Press was a disgrace]

Tim Russet who dealt with the same type of mentality was a “Moderator” in charge of his show “Meet The Press.” He was always fair to both sides, but I know Mr. Russet would have never allowed such wanton, capricious behavior.

In the final analysis, I do believe that Mr. Gregory is an educated man, but NBC and the Public was better served when Mr. Gregory was a reporter at the White House. April 15th 2012 was just one of the Sundays that Mr. Gregory allowed Meet The Press to turn into a chaotic fracas.  I got so frustrated over the past year that I no longer look at Meet the Press.

A turning point in the Afghan War, President Obama signs Pact in Kabul!

In regards to the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, President Obama has done much more in three years, than former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney did in seven. Bush and Cheney bifurcation of the justifiable Afghan war with Iraq, in 2003, was the cause, not the symptom, for America’s two longest wars in American history.

For the critics wanting more information, the agreement executed in Kabul is the inception of a “frame-work” for which undoubtedly is going to be a most tedious undertaking. Just how many details did you expect?  

President Obama having ended Iraq’s 8 year war and paving the path to end America’s longest war in Afghanistan is remarkable, and it should be, even for those that oppose or criticize the President.

The Military deserves enormous credit but so does the President, for without his approval to take the risk, Osama bin Laden would still be alive taunting us!
