“College for Cons, says Cuomo” New York Daily News, Feb 17, 2014

 

Have Mr. Cuomo and the State of New York loss their mind. The best form of education that an inmate should receive in these hard economic times is Moral Education and Self knowledge and Discipline. What about our law abiding college grads who are stuck with expensive college loans and still not able to find a job? They may become our next inmates trying to pay their loans and their share of inmate education; at lease they can receive a free education this time, thanks to Mr. Cuomo and the generous State of New York crime fighters. An immoral person who never receives moral disciplines is likely to use his higher education for what they know best. Gov. Cuomo “give us a break”. The honest, hard working people need a break. We already spend aprox. $50,000 a year to house an inmate, how much additional to education them? Has crime become the new American way of life?

Minimum Wage and The Average Family Budget?

 

Fair Minimum Wage Act

 $7.25 minimum wage vs. $10.10 (a $2.85) increase.

“The president has long supported raising the minimum wage so hard-working Americans can have a decent wage for a day’s work to support their families and make ends meet,” a White House official said.

President Obama, the official continued, supports the Harkin-Miller bill, also known as the Fair Minimum Wage Act, which would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, from its current $7.25.

 

Will a $2.85 increase be enough for any hard working American to support their family and make ends meet? Let’s see:

$7.25 (40 Hour Week)    vs.     $10.10 (40 Hour Week

$290.00 per. Week                            $404.00 per Week

$1,160.00 per. Month                        $1,616.00 per Month

$13,820.00 per. Year                         $19,392.oo per. Year

To support your family in America today, according to the average budget (below) you must earn $25.00 per hour, based on a 40 hr. week, that’s $48.00 per year. $10.10 today is considered a slave wage.

What is the Average Family Budget?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics regularly publishes consumption surveys, which we can use to give us an idea of the average budget for an American family.

Go USA! Sochi Olympics 2014

Go USA!

G-d’s human family competing as nations with one another in the Sochi Olympics 2014……..Not for War but for Peace!

Holy Qur’an:

With G-d’s Name, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

 49:13. O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of G-d are (those who are) the most righteous of you. And G-d has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

 

2:62. Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in G-d and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

National Prayer Breakfast,Pres.Obama: Religious Freedom

National Prayer Breakfast 2014
President Obama: Religious Freedom

At this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast, Pres. Obama spoke on religious freedom in the world, he mentioned two Americans; Kenneth Bae a U.S. missionary and Saeed Abedini an Idaho, pastor, men of faith imprisoned; in N. Korea and the Iran, both accused of spying by those governments. Mr. Obama suggested that they be released because of their “spiritual work” and their faith in G-d and returned home to America.
Presently America is also holding people of faith; Islamic faith, at the U.S.A. Guantanamo Bay Military Prison, who are accused of fighting in their own countries, in Afghanistan and Iran to rid their countries of “invaders”, fighting In The Name Of G-d. Should they also be freed by the American government who are holding them because of their faith and their desire to free themselves of invaders and returned home to their families?
Christian teachings are to want for your human Brothers and Sisters what you want and desire for yourselves, anything else would be classified as hypocritical. All people of faith are equally the children of G-d, not ours; faith belongs to G-d alone.

Mayor Bloomberg’s 16 oz.

For those New Yokers who like to take advantage of their choice to purchase what they desire in this free democratic society, should challenge Mayor Bloomberg’s, 16 oz. soda law, by bringing your own 15 oz. cup. To be truthful any amount of soda is no good for you, but when is it the right of a “Billion Dollar Mayor” to make a decision for the public. If he wants to make a decision for the public, make a law against worshipping the devil, which is legal in New York and America. Soda is bad for the body, the devil is bad for the soul. Today its a ban on soda, tomorrow it may be a ban on your life, as you know it and the end of your civil liberties.

Wake-Up! Fight to uphold your rights!!!

The wisdom of a wise man regarding a fool is that he pays absolutely no attention to his foolishness, and the wisdom of a fool is when he begins to show respect to his elders.

PIMP

Pimp

“The description of any man, who will allow his wife to perform indecent, lustful acts in public for money, is the description of a “Pimp”, who has traded their souls to The Devil.”

Blackman, Prison or College?

My “white” jr. high school teacher told me; her 12 year old, 7th grade “black” student that I would be in prison by the time I was 20 years old, that was in 1954. I also heard this from many “black” men from different parts of the county. Could this have been a seed planted in the heads of young “blackmen” to program them towards incarcaration instead of college? Today there are well over one million “blackmen” incarcarated in American prisons, how many in colleges?
