Is this justice?

*
Congrats to my man Lenny McAllister from over at Politic365. Lenny is running for Jesse Jackson, Jr's congressional seat in Illinois.

Lenny seems like good people, and he is exactly the kind of candidate that republicans should be running for public office. Let's hope that they learned their lesson after November 6th. Although, from the looks of things, not much has changed.

Lenny's chances are slim, but at least he is out there helping his party's brand.

There is still no positive word on this looming fiscal cliff. It's Grover and his merry men against the President. Who will blink, first? Hey I have an idea: Why don't we just hold hands and jump off the cliff together? I think that there are a lot of people in America who are secretly hoping that we will all go over the cliff. Some, on the other hand, are not so secretive about it.

The following is from a blogger who styles him/herself "Liberal Anthropologist":

"There has been much talk recently about how one side or another should deal with the fiscal cliff. The Democrats are a lost cause (at the moment) when it comes to fiscal matters. This is most evidenced by the absolutely ridiculous proposal made by Obama’s team.

So this is my suggestion to the Republicans. Just announce now that if the president’s people do not put forward a serious proposal that involves massive spending cuts that the fiscal cliff will be gone over.
And it is a good thing.

Why? Because we need to cut all of that spending anyway. It is not even enough. It is a down payment on the spending cuts that are really needed. So the automatic spending cuts are a good thing." [Source]

Now that's tough talk. And, to be fair, O and his peeps are talking just as tough.

"The White House is "absolutely" prepared to go over the so-called "fiscal cliff" should negotiations with Republicans fail to muster a deal that would prevent a devastating series of tax hikes and spending cuts from triggering Jan. 1, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said today.

Geithner, whom President Obama assigned to be the point person on his "fiscal cliff" proposal, told CNBC in an interview that an agreement won't be reached by year's end unless the GOP concedes an increase in tax rates for the top two percent of wealthiest Americans. Disparity over whether to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans or only those making less than $250,000 a year has barricaded any headway on a plan for months." [Source]

Folks, it's time to start saving. I think that you are going to need every penny.

Finally, I am going to leave you with a story. I don't want to give my opinion, because there are some folks out there who just out of GP will say black if I say white. Rather, I will let you read and decide for yourself.

"In October of 2006, the Jackson family of Solomons, Md., would be rocked, when their 21-year-old son, *Brandon (pictured), was reportedly jumped by 7 to 8 White males. Six years later, Brandon would be sentenced by a nearly all-White jury to 12 years in prison for attempted murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a weapon for defending himself against one of the “victims.” Struck down but buoyed by faith, Brandon’s mother, Gloria Fisher, spoke with NewsOne about how she won’t stop until she gets justice for Brandon.

While Brandon helped his employer move furniture at her house in Jackson, N.J., he allegedly noticed that a fight had broken out at a party across the street. After walking toward the altercation to investigate the melee, one of the individuals involved, who is said to have been visibly intoxicated along with the raucous group, began fighting with him.

According to Gloria, Brandon quickly shut the aggressor down and attempted to return to the house he came from.

But that would be just the beginning.

The aggressor — now allegedly armed with 7 to 8 other White males in tow — followed Brandon and then reportedly began stomping and kicking him while yelling, “Kill the n*gger!”

According to Gloria, Brandon pulled out his 3-inch work pocket knife in self-defense, forcing the group back, but it was the homeowner’s call to police that would finally force the motley group to stand down.

On the police report, even though the officer would list the incident as a “racial offense” and Brandon would sustain injuries to the back of his head and knees and even had a fingernail bitten off, he would later be the only one charged with aggravated assault and illegal weapons possession.

It wasn’t until April of 2009 that Brandon’s case would go to a grand jury. By then, the charges would somehow be trumped up to include attempted murder.
Even though Brandon’s lawyer would manage to get a statement from the homeowner, proving that he had indeed been attacked by the group of White teens, the prosecutor’s office reportedly refused to give this vital information to the defense attorney. Brandon’s trial would then be postponed yet again before finally taking place in September 2011 — almost 5 years after the trial first began." [Read more here]

For the record, the young man in this story was found guilty by an all white jury and sentenced to 12 years in prison.

But read the story for yourself. Something about the prosecution's case convinced those jurors that this violent young black man did the crime.

It seems the ONLY way to deal with cases like Brandons is through the legal system, and who better to do that than a group of Black male Attorneys?

Again, if EVERY Black professional took up some cause important in OUR community, the problems would significantly disappear over time. Unfortunately, problems like these will continue to be pervasive in the Black America until there is consistent unity among people in a position to make a difference.

I'm doing my part, what are the rest of ya'll doing?

Dr Nuwa'ng, "I'm doing my part, what are the rest of ya'll doing?"

Like "what" are you doing that is making a difference? Field isn't doing shit and neither are any black lawyers.

By now, if Blacks cared about each other, there would be a black lawyers' association for justice for black men such as Brandon. Instead, the prisons are overflowing with injustices to our people.

It's really depressing and borders on hopelessness. This really sucks.

And it is a good thing.

Obama is the one who wants to go over the fiscal cliff. He could care less that taxes are raised for all, he and democrats were against the Bush tax cuts to begin with. You know, those tax increases he is trying to now say he is for. If not he wouldn't ridiculously try to convince anyone that raising taxes on those making 250k will do anything when anyone with the ability to count knows it will do literally nothing. Raising enough funds theoretically because increased taxes ALWAYS results in decreased revenue - in the amount of 89 billion is just enough to run the government juggernaut for 8 days.

So, no spending cuts, no spending review, no corruption/graft and cronyism review yet he has this magic nonsense saying that making those evil rich job producers pay more AND adding in another stimulus and MORE spending will fix the borrowing and spending problem. All when it's easy to see the money will be a drop in a bucket, yet the near million jobs lost will seriously harm us and cause further revenue loss.

Ask yourself this, why would Obama not want to seriously look at a serious budget and why are democrats putting Obamas disastrous draft up as a plan when not one single democrat voted for it in the house OR Senate both, they were all against it, that is how bad it was.

He want's taxes to be raised on everyone, in his mind it is the only way to somehow get some more money for his party buying scheme, and taxes on the rich won't work, he needs to tax everyone and that is exactly what he is doing and thinking he can pull his usual bait and switch and blame someone else for continuing to destroy the economy.

Maybe if people like this paid their taxes and fair share, we wouldn't be on the brink of needing to steal more money from U.S taxpayers and mortgaging our kids futures to bail out the failed Democratic policy experiments of Detroit.


Democrat Detroit city council member pays $68 in property taxes, neighbors pay $6000

by editor on May 30, 2009
You'd be smiling, too, if your property taxes were only $68 per year.

You'd be smiling, too, if your property taxes were only $68 per year.

The Detroit Free Press reports that a member of the city council pays just $68 in annual property taxes on her Tudor style home, although neighbors in comparable homes pay $2000-6000.

As you might expect, JoAnn Watson’s a Democrat, but that fact is conveniently omitted from the Detroit Free Press article.

The story gets even more laughable when JoAnn Watson attempts to explain why her taxes are so low.

“I’ve been a target of a smear campaign,” Watson insisted. “… I pay my bills and whatever I was billed, I paid.”

“I pay the taxes. All I know is I had a big drop when my house got hit hard by a tornado,” Watson said. “We had great damage.”

Watson claims her home suffered roof and foundation damage, but the Free Press notes that she never filed an insurance claim.

When did the tornado hit? Well, that’s where Watson’s story gets a tad hazy. She said it might have been 1993. Or it might have been 2002. Who knows?

Watson is a past winner of Detroit’s “Women’s Equality Day Lifetime Achievement Award.” But property taxes were obviously not included in that equality thing.

Field,
The Democrats are playing all their supporters and Americans for fools.
Obama said his plan was serious and would not negotiate. Then why would Harry Ried the leader of the Democratic Senate who has not produced a budget since Obama has been in office block a vote in the senate on Obamas specific plan?

What are they afraid of? Why would the president provide a "plan" and then have Democrats refuse to allow it to be brought up for debate and a vote?

Because they know it's a joke and want to go over the cliff and want taxes to be raised on everyone and want the resulting recession, coming either way without serious spending cuts to be blamed on someone else.

"Moments ago, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor and offered an immediate vote on President Obama's fiscal cliff plan, which shocked the Beltway late last week. (In case you're keeping score at home, this was the surreal proposal that induced McConnell to laugh out loud as it was outlined by Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner). Harry Reid quickly objected and shut the whole thing down, labeling the suggestion a "stunt." Think about that. The President of the United States, a Democrat, crafted a fiscal cliff package that would give him everything he wants. It has tax hikes on the rich. It has huge tax hikes on investments and estates. It has more stimulus spending. It has no meaningful, specific, or guaranteed spending cuts. And it compels Congress to cede control of the debt ceiling to him. This is "fairness" on steroids. The Senate's top Republican proposed an up-or-down vote on everything the president wants, yet Democrats, who control the upper chamber, instantly blocked it. By what definition is it a "stunt" to hold a vote on the president's full, public plan? The White House has insisted it's a serious document, yet Hill Democrats don't want it to see the light of day.

You might have a point. It never occurred to me that Brandon might be lying. But now that you mention it, he COULD be lying. In addition, Field kept his mouth shut about Brandon, which is a sure sign that Brandon is guilty.

I am so sick and tired of my peeps lying just to stay out of jail. But I still wonder about that NJ justice system. It is a FACT that it is a racist system.

I don't know about your boy Lenny. He has/had a radio show here in Chicago. For the most part he comes across pretty reasonable but he occasionally starts in with gop talking points and stances that no logical person can have. He is in the same boat as Mike Steele, he has to defend all the stupid in his party when anyone else would have to leave them out of GP. He says it's his religious faith that keeps him in the gop so that should be a clue right off the jump.

Welcome to the results of more and more liberal policies. Soon it will be a police state and a third world nation unable to economically survive.

Wonder how the Mayor will determine what is a gang wedding that requires police presence and pat-down of grannies there mourning the son who just got shot in the head? I guess he will have to target Blacks and Latinos as they are 97% of gang related activity in ILL-o--noize

CHICAGO (CBS) – Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Chicago police are making strong moves to confront continuing city violence—which has included violent attacks at funerals.

The mayor expressed anger that people have been shooting and carrying guns at gang-member funerals.

“The police department is going to change the way they deal with gang funerals,” he said. “If you cannot respect a place of worship, at a time of a funeral, we are going to show a different type of attitude.”

The funerals will be treated as “gang events,” with mourners being searched and patted down, among other security measures.

The lesson here is to call the police if you see something happening untoward that is also illegal and it disturbs you. Why would this black man inject himself in a kerfuffle with a bunch of white people, anyway? He didn't even know these people. If I see people fighting, all I'm going to do is take cover before the guns come out. I might call the police depending on how I feel about the people involved.

Not being religious myself and just making an observation. Have you ever studied history? How has belittling God and destroying the family based culture worked out so far for Blacks? You apparently promote that culture, so how do you see more unwed mothers, more abandoned kids with fathers who shrug off the load when it gets heavy and kids them most, demanding government step in?

What's worse believing in a Guy in the sky that has rules that call for you to behave under rules that promote civilization, or believing that some fast talking politician really cares about some thug being raised by some poor mother and looking to government for the answers?

You don't sound dumb enough to think a politician that lies every other sentence, isn't lying when he convinces you he really cares, yet you sure as hell act like you are even dumber than that. Because of his skin color? Those are the worst kind of snake oil salesman ,they know just how to press your buttons while lifting your wallet.

How can someone smart be so dumb?

Which one has worked better? The rules of lets say things like the ten commandments or worshiping Obama/Sharpton and the like?

You decide.

Translation: Lenny has strayed off the plantation and is thinking thoughts that black people are not alowed to think. Danger! Danger! Black people must all have the same political opinions!

Mitt Romney has paid over $60 million in federal taxes. Enough to support your lazy black ass while you stay in college for 40 years, along with hundreds of other useless societal parasites.

You should be kissing his super-white ass for making your phony academic life possible, instead you and all the other worthless ingrates just demand more.

If there was any justice in this country, you would be washing his toilet instead washing the glassware in some Asian guy's lab, taking up space and bejabbering about becoming a doctor.

You will never be a doctor.

First, I don't believe you. I think you are religious, and you are a right winger.


Second, you need to educate yourself. Blacks are some of the most religious people in this country. I would argue that this is one of the things holding us back. Religion has been used to pacify blacks throughout the history of this country.

Carry on.

I agree with your perspective and I've always wondered when did the GOP become the only party that represents alleged "christian values". He presents well and he has a demeanor that isn't as off putting as the more radical wing of the party, however, he's the more "effective evil" for he normalizes their wrongdoings!

"Blacks are some of the most religious people in this country"

Some of them are, but professing belief and actually living by the tenets of one's faith are two different things.

I think you are side stepping the anon's point that not living by the standards of the larger, basically Christian culture they inhabit, or really any by any standards at all, has been a disaster for the majority of black folks.

Rich, educated liberals like you and X can dismiss Christianity as superstition, and reject religiously based standards of behavior as unnecessary, or worse "pacification", but you basically live by traditional standards yourselves. You are married, you pay more to the government than you get back, and you don't steal shit.

Poor people in general and black people in particular would have much better lives if they lived them to traditional standards of behavior.

Nihilism isn't working out all that well.

I need to educate myself and learn your "talking points"?

Blacks used to be very religious. Used to believe in family, strength, growth, development. Not any longer. You know it and I know it so your bullshit outrage is just that, bullshit.

You can believe that everyone who tells you something is a liar if it doesn't fit the model you have to have in order to be a democrat. All Blacks must think and act a certain way, all Whites and so on...We all know who fools themselves with that tripe in order to avoid dealing with tough questions.

I never said religion was the answer, I said values and if you think more unwed kids in the streets raised by granma is the answer, then the way you think surely explains why things are just so wonderful don't they. So have at it and you carry on. Maybe you should abandon your kids, they will be great as long as they aren't religious because that's exactly what you just said.

I love those religious gang-bangers catching up to folks at funerals. I guess they were just going to share the same values you have instilled.

Why do people who cannot think logically and deny reality the ones in the moonbat camp?

You saw the democratic convention. They are the party of death and saying no to god. You can't worship government and man ruling you if you have any religion at all. Read Lenin/Marx .

In conservoworld there is no other choice other than their brand of Christianity or atheism/nihilsm. Sad, such limited thinking.
Also, it's not the fact that Lenny has gone off the "plantation" so to speak but for such an intelligent brother he spends so much time defending gop nonsense ie "rape babies" and such. I don't have a problem with diverse thought but I truly hate when smart people have to dumb themselves down to remain in a group, hello Condi!
