    Why do these words send a chill up my back, recently coming from Sarah Palin;

    "We don't need to fundamentally transform America," she said. "We need to restore America"

    What I'm hearing is that she wants to take things back to a different time. And coming out the mouth of this white woman, I can just imagine how far back she wants to go, and the reason for her to want to go in the first place.

    Had the same creepy feeling when a CIA Bonesman said he was going to run for president and his first mission would we to
    "Spread Democracy Around the World as Much as Possible"

    Bu we have to appreciate any player that shows their cards

    Like Dr Jeffries used to say

    "Don't get Mad get Glad,
    Don't Get mad, Get Prepared"

    and with the number of teachers, warners and human alarm clocks that we have been blessed with as black folks or the past 50 years

    we shoud have been prepared along time ago

    For instance;

    "They" are entering November with a well thought out and well funded political agenda

    But where is our National Black Agenda?????

    No we have to stop looking at politics the way we watch football and basketball

    Paladino won in NYState becuase Black folks had forgotten that Malcolm X advised us to look at politics as our tool, and not 2 parties to be loyal to

    h stated that since only 20% of anyone ever goes to the primaires that if we voted enmasse, we could play both parties against each other for our interest

    We have to learn to leave emotions out of politits

    Jesse Ventura the former governor said the 2 party flame wars we see on televIsion and hear over bills and what not is about as real as WWF.

    People need to Listen to the Ballot part

    of the "Ballot or the Bullet" by Malcolm X and listen to it carefully!!!!!!!

    The man was not speaking just to shoot the breeze!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A man walked into a knick knack shop and saw a beautiful bronze rat on a shelf. It was a rat and everything but it was so exquisitely carved he could not resist it. He took it to the cashier and asked how much it was. The cashier said ten dollars for the rat and one hundred for the story. The man just paid ten dollars for the rat. When he stepped outside every rat in the whole town came out of alleys, trash cans, sewers. He got scared and started running. The rats chased him to the river whee he threw the bronze rat. All the rats jumped in the river after the bronze rat and drowned. He went back to the store. The cashier said I guess you'll be wanting the story now. The man said no I just want to know if you have any bronze Republicans.

    keep drinking the kool aid

    as the democrats continue to try to out con the neocons

    It will be another 100 years before we understand that the Democrats and Republicans are
    the two arms of the corporatocracy

    and boh funded by the same White Supremists

    but if we still want to look at it the way we watch sport we ware free to do so

    However when the Jews said never again, we had some folks who were taking notes.

    If we fail to plan a National Black political Agenda,
    and a National Black economic Collective,

    where will we be?
