    In this world one should do no harm.
    But we are living like we are on a FARM.
    Pushing and shoving fighting for food.
    Never for something like better schools.

    Tracked like cattle statistically rate.
    To the trough we call our rights.
    Shoving and back-biting like
    There was only one gate.

    Laughing protected high shelved rich.
    Manipulate us like we aren't sh!!t.

    These are the things that are considered high crime.
    When the statistics dropped it blew their minds.

    So they wrote a book
    Gave some reasons why
    Gathered the best information from the FBI

    Could it be so many no longer want to die?

    Even a fool gets tired and slows down some
    Maybe the most violent was locked up town.

    FORCED RAPE
    AGGRAVATED ASSAULT
    ROBBERY
    MURDER
    SIMPLE ASSAULT

    Now look at the letters that
    Make up the crimes. Tell me
    Doesn't that spell FARMS

    ATL :bully: your always in the top Ten.

    St. Louis shame on you. You act like
    Your mother doesn’t live there too.

    Richmond California I see your stat
    Making number one on the killing map.

    Florida you must be feeding the fish
    Because you’re entire state is doing this.

    No one has added up the
    Thousands that make these tolls.
    I did a rough number using the 2002 poll :yesno:
    My estimate and I may count the past
    For this year alone divide a million in half

    That is a lot of crime they depend on us to do
    So who is using and making a fool of who?

    Good question. The key is information. Getting it to the masses is very hard because the medium for doing so is so controlled and limited.

    It is limited for this very reason especially to keep the public from focusing on numbers and statistics. The radio stations being public airways aren't doing their community service dutie of keeping the public informed of issues.

    They are more concerned with being the DJ of the year, showing off their male sexual prowress by talking dirty or bad. They aren't the best influences to be honest. Having high sponsor revenues and squeezing the honeys at the next party or live over the air location function seems to be the priority.

    I recall a few years ago a few stations still had integrity on their morning shows, because kids listened in the morning heading for school. I listened while commuting. Actually I think that was the quiet storm stations ( playing old school and some newer R&B ) and the smooth jazz stations.

    Now street soldiers it comes on very late, but they do bring up simular or these types of issues. They have been lately focusing heavily on gang violence.. but all issues related most of these are one in the same.

    You know they say to hide something, place it in a book, or newspaper?


    It is a well studied and proven fact that the public will not care to read or get involved and concerned because everyday issues they piled on us keep us well weighed down. Then you have the passive bunch... those who won't be concerned after they hear about it. " It isn't happening to me crowd "

    There are some who think one man or woman can't change things and they are wrong, every real change or great moment has been achieved by two or less thru-out history.

    So write and call if you want to these radio stations and ask for better programming and better public discussions.

    Think for a moment.. you know why the United States has a separation of church and state?

    It isn't because of religious persecution suffered in Europe, if it was the ties to Europe would be totally severed. It is so the churchs here will stay out of issues like this related to life, being kind and responsible adults.

    The controlling factor is they ( the government has them ( churchs ) strung up with the tax write off and exemption status amenities)

    If they speak out or even ask radio stations and the government to change they loose that status.

    I say it is a hold on freedom of speech and a control unjustly obtained.


    Today the church has to throw off ( especially the black churches ) this shackle of slavery and silence they are held in.

    Accept the tax consequences of paying for goods and services and writing off the same expenses as any other business.

    It is the same only made to believe it isn't.


    A busines writes off everything .. the salarys of its workers, its travel, its meals and entertainment and vehicles. The building cost and utility cost.

    So can a church but must stay out of politics to get the same benefit they would have if they didn't take the benefit of silence this way.:gossip:

    Another benefit is the church doesn't have to report the money we gave them.. so it is a bought your life process.. shameful!

    Jerry Falwell hasn't lost his status, he is an advocate for hate and racism in America and Conservative seceding in certain states again. They want to create another civil war, believing they are better prepared today and they may be. No one and he is on TV and Radio.. has told him to shut up and stop preaching politics!

    So pay taxes on the income, the cost of the building is written off anyway and so are the pews, lights, flowers, alter cost, maintenance repairs, upkeep, and church buses.

    I second that emotion
    Senator Barack Obama said it
    when he spoke at the DNC in 2004
    "Go look around any inner-city neighborhood
    and look at the environmant. But we need to stop
    telling our children that a black kid with a book is acting white."

    Very informative drop, brother Hodee
