In a materialistic world, what is the most valuable thing you can give your young boys? Nope, it's not money-they'll spend it on rims and shoes. Nope, it's not "bling"- they'll only create a false illusion of wealth that, in the end, they'll pawn. Nope, not video games - it only makes them fat and lazy (but they'll have strong thumbs). How about a book? Yes, a book.

Saturday afternoon in Tampa maybe some clouds moving and making way for another wonderful day of sunshine upon God's earth. I can't help but to stop and think about the babies who are lying in a nursery and have no idea what type of family they will go into. Will that baby have ties into a well to do family that will love him/her and guide them with a skillful hand? Will the picture be twisted where that same infant will find him/herself in a family where they will be abused and treated as a refugee? I will admit I have a heart in this situation because I am a product of the latter.

Comfort
"Your eyes will adjust to the level of deficiency in your life" - Iyanla Vanzant. Could substitute confidence, efforts, networking, and passion, in place of "life." Vanzant was suggesting during her live presentation that many have become accustomed to the circumstances surrounding their existence. In a word†-- comfortable.

Last week, when I wrote a piece about the Fourth of July, some morons came with what they know as the end all and be all of arguments: "Love it or leave it."

That even fell from the filthy lips of some confused Negroes.
That argument is old, tired and stupid.

When you gamble, at some point, all bets may come off the table, because for some, either there is nothing to lose, or there is nothing to gain.

As a people, Blacks may have come to the point where all bets are off.

We've reached a point where everyone knows that they don't really have to care about us. There is no incentive to do right by us on any level because we haven't done what we need to do to control our communications, our economy or anything that we actually could have controlled.

Monday Mover -- Scared
"...I'm alone in this trial, I'm scared and out gunned but I'm right."† Rudy - the young attorney from the John Grisham movie The Rainmaker.†

To those of you facing a major project, or end of the month goals, or a nefarious manager, or starting a new job, or the loss of a client, or non-supportive spouse, or a number of other situations ... remain active, alert and available to your potential.† By all means remain.
