I hope other communities will join you. Yes, Black lives matter just as all lives matter. So, let’s come together and work for a better future. Division and discord benefits no one.

When I was a kid, there was a school organization called Junior Achievement. Anybody remember it? The purpose was to teach entrepreneurship by helping kids working on teams to generate ideas for a product, write a development plan, produce the product, market and advertise the product, and reap the financial outcome. I believe a lot of inner city schools would help their students tremendously by teaching them how to be creative and inventive. Too many young people today think you have to be an athlete, a rapper, or join a gang to achieve “status.” If only Community leaders and Black professionals would come into schools and help kids see what thinking like an entrepreneur can achieve.
I don't remember a program like that, but I am fi^*& plus years old. It sounds like an excellent program for inner-city youth especially, AND for any youth, no matter the status that they come from. It would be exciting for kids to do something like that. I think I'll bring it up at the next school board meeting. Thanks for the idea!
Too bad Community ORGANIZERS (think Obama) don't think of bringing such programs to their communities...maybe people would think more highly of them!
There are some great programs in place including ones like the one you are describing. The problem really starts at home though. Its pretty hard to break out of. The cycle of poverty is a real thing.
I hope other communities will join you. Yes, Black lives matter just as all lives matter. So, let's come together and work for a better future. Division and discord benefits no one.
I remember JA. Never joined, but got a lot of mail from them wanting me to join.
JA was a blast!! It made you feel confident when you made those business decisions and we were so proud when our product was fully designed, developed and marketed. Is it not still around?
Isn't that basically the same concept as "The Apprentice" ???
I vaguely do remember such a program at my high school......
But, I was into sports, so no time for nerd stuff.............
The cycle of poverty starts with poor choices of individuals. It does not start with any wrong doing committed by one group on another.
You can say that all you want Jimbo, but it doesn't make it true. I'm all for personal responsibility, but pretending there is no cycle of poverty is just a weak excuse to ignore the problem.

LibertyGone & others. Junior Achievement (JA) is alive and well. Please visit their website. JA was established in 1919 by the way. I was a member my junior and senior years in HS, wonderful experience. One little hint for those joining, don’t let the village stoner run ANY of the power tools….just sayin!

You are absolutely correct. Freedom allows us to work and benefit from our labor as people of all cultures have done in this country. Freedom also allows us to whine and complain and play the “victim” card. Unfortunately, “victim hood” takes on a life of its own and robs future generations of the opportunity to gain self confidence and be part of all America has to offer.

Oppression of Blacks in America? What other country pays athletes millions of dollars for basically part time work? What about Blacks in entertainment? Most are multi-millionaires. There are Blacks in every profession, including CEO’s of billion dollar corporations, doctors, lawyers, professors, politicians, judges, President of the United States! So, tell me again just how oppressed you are.
I read the book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, as a teenager. I know the book is despised by Blacks but I really don’t understand exactly why. The story detailed the hardships and heartbreaks suffered by slavery. Uncle Tom was a heroic figure who had a kind heart and demeanor. I felt deep compassion for the slaves. I do think racism runs both ways and people of all colors can be prejudiced. America is a country of many races, but that does not give any group the right to act violently or hatefully toward the others.

I watched a biography of President Reagan a couple of days ago. He was an actor, but spoke without a TelePrompTer. Obama isn’t an actor, but has to be fed his “lines.”
Uh-huh. Teleprompters have been in use for a while, and Reagan sure didn't mind.

Don’t forget he still has his pen and his phone…both of which he can use while on the golf course.

I saw a few seconds at the beginning of Obama’s speech when the camera and mic were “live” but Obama apparently didn’t realize it. It was probably very hot, but he sounded very grumpy and said something to the effect, “Come on…let’s get this over with.” He then realized the camera was on and stammered a bit and changed his tone quickly to the compassionate, caring president we all know he is. Anyone else notice this? Secondly, he was thanking groups of people for the work they had done on behalf of Baton Rouge flood victims. I actually never heard him thank the police. He may have and I missed it, but I heard him thank local volunteers, neighbors, national guard and really thanked FEMA over and over. Police…I don’t think so despite an officer standing right behind him.
"...despite an officer standing right behind him." The one who's foot was just itching to kick Ovomit right in his damn a$$. You would have heard cheering for miles.

God gave us Scripture as a means of verifying truth and this doctor’s story doesn’t line up. Sorry.

Porn damages marriages and distorts the view of men toward women. It was the Siren’s call from Greek mythology that lured ships to disaster on the rocky shoals. Porn is the Siren’s call. It can only damage and destroy.

Islam is NOT an Abrahamic religion. Ishmael was the illegitimate son of Abraham but he did not share the Jewish faith of his father.
Amen brother! For G-d said upon Abraham, behold Issac, you ONLY TRUE begotten son. So many Muslims have this affinity to Abraham, almost as they ride on his coat tails. I have a feeling he would tell them to get lost!

Obama is the only president I know of who lit up the White House in Rainbow gay. I would say he was making a statement.

You have much in common with Karl Marx. He called religion the opiate of the masses. Interesting that Marx’s Communist Manifesto created widespread delusion and suffering.

What if a doctor posted that he was praying for guidance and healing for a patient who had a very aggressive form of cancer. Would that be unprofessional? Quite the opposite–most patients would be comforted knowing that this doctor combined skill with faith. Believers integrate faith into every aspect of their lives.
they might be grateful but if they were too specific then the hippa rules protecting that patient could be violated. maybe I dont care to spread that around to everyone.

Commissioners are not generals and are elected to serve at the will of the people. Judges are not generals and cannot (by Constitution) create law but merely interpret law. Generals do not have authority over private citizens and they, too, follow specific protocol set forth by the Commander in Chief and Congress. I suspect these five commissioners will be looking for new jobs come election time–at least I hope so.
