Today is the 50th Anniversary
of Martin Luther King - I Have A Dream Speech August 28, 1963
Clearly MLK was a major force
for positive change at a point when “the time was right”. He inspired those who followed him and
disarmed those who opposed him. Wouldn’t
it be wonderful to have such leadership in our Country today! The past 50 years have seen a major change in
the opportunities for our people of color.
Many have been able to utilize those expanded opportunities but
unfortunately many have been unable to do so.
Unfortunately for all of us
and particularly those who are disadvantaged there continues to be those who B.T.
Washington described in his book as:
“There is another class of coloured people who
make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the
Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a
living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of
advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because
it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances,
because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
(p. 118, My Larger Education BTW 1911) - See more at:
Unfortunately many of our
leaders in America and in Washington belong to
this negative “class” and continue to disrespect those who are falling behind
by making them more and more dependent instead of helping to make them
independent and self-sufficient. No
better examples exist than the dismal failures of inter-city schools and the
disintegration of the family-unit.
Perhaps the most import act
we could accomplish on behalf of B.T. Washington and MLK would be to help all
disadvantaged persons to get the skill and knowledge they need to achieve a
good standard of living for themselves and their families.
A most inspiring image for
all is the statute at the entrance to Tuskegee
University in Alabama:
Let us hope that going
forward the positive voices of help and reinforcement will drown-out the
negative voices of those whose very income and importance is tied to racial strife,
conflict and race and class warfare.

Roanoke Times, 8-23-2013, Pg 1, 4: BIG multipage article with photos:
Manning: I want to live as a woman; Advocacy groups rush to his aid.
Pvt Bradley Manning, US Army soldier, found guilty of being a traitor to his county by revealing thousands of important classified documents has now become a celebrity to all those who are fixated on sexually confused and disoriented persons. Apparently being a convicted traitor is of less news-worthy interest than which bathroom he wishes to use.
Manning has publicized pictures of himself in-drag and declares he is now on his way to being female. That’s not clear. What is clear is that he’s on his way to Leavenworth Prison where perhaps there are inmates that may help him sort out his sexual ambivalence.
Of curious note is the Roanoke Times’ ongoing fixation and publication of articles like this about sexually confused persons. This is yet another very long article that is short on Manning’s crimes against the United States but very long on the details of his sexuality issues.
Is this subject really worthy of such RT literary talent and volumes of ink and paper? Who selects this stuff and how does it rate compared to the entire local, Va, US and world real news? Aren’t the rags at “check-out” covering this salacious stuff enough?

When I joined the Army, homosexual behaviors were unlawful.
Then they became tolerable
Then they became acceptable
I’m glad I got out of the Army before Obama makes them mandatory!
Additional more new bad ObamaCare news: 9-3-2013:
ObamaCare: More Deceit That We Can Believe In
Even more new bad ObamaCare news 8-22-2013, Pg 10: UVa eliminates health insurance for working spouses of employees. Coverage will end Jan 1 in a move to save millions of dollars.
This at the liberal-progressive institution that turned out thousands of pro-Obama supporters and voters -- Twice! How's that working out for you-all?
More new bad ObamaCare news Aug 21, 2013:
Health-Care Premiums Up; UPS Dropping 15K Spouses from Coveragehttp://www.foxbusiness.com/personal-finance/2013/08/21/health-care-premiums-up-ups-dropping-15k-spouses-from-coverage/#ixzz2chKgQYXy
Roanoke Times, 8-16-2013, Pg 9: $1.3 Million (taxpayer dollars)
going to “Navigator Grants” to “help” Virginians sign-up for ObamaCare
That’s just for Virginia
– the upfront spending (of taxpayer dollars) is: Feds
roll out $67 Million in "Navigator" grants
That $67 Million of taxpayer money is not going for real HealthCare
– it’s going to groups the Obama Administration views as “socially friendly” to
find people to get onto the ObamaCare program.
Rather like the 16,000 new IRS agents who will be “administrating”
ObamaCare – haven’t heard anything about more doctors or nurses – have you?
Federal Workers Don’t Want ObamaCare – What a surprise!
The survey of 2,500 federal employees and retirees found that 92.3
percent of them believe workers and retirees should current health insurance and not be forced to purchase
coverage through the exchanges.
And that includes the IRS managers and agents who are going to “administer”
Health Reform’s Limit on
Consumer Costs Gets Delayed
The Obama Administration
has confirmed a third delay in the Affordable Care Act’s rocky road to
implementation with the pushback on the limit of out-of-pocket costs some
consumers will pay for coverage.
The consumer protection part of the law limits health insurance deductibles
and co-payments from exceeding $6,350 for individuals and $12,700 for families
was supposed to go into effect next year, but has been delayed to 2015.
And the Roanoke Times just keeps rolling out articles explaining
how wonderful ObamaCare is and how wonderful it will be. Fits in well with their Pravda mantra.
