  1. Absolutely not. I appreciate everyone's contribution to the discussion regardless of whether or not I agree. Along the same lines, I have no problem whatsoever in having my opinions challenged. Constructive dialog is good. There is no need for me to raise money for DC's Mayor for Life. His legacy has already been cemented. Regardless of Marion Barry's flaws as mortal man, there is a reason he was beloved by a couple generations of Black people.
  2. I understand your point of view. I realize you're not impressed with the readership here. Again, I'd be slightly curious to know what makes you come back to this particular discussion forum.
  3. Crisis averted. Bill passed unanimously by both the House and Senate. POTUS Biden will sign it today and deliver remarks. Since they made it a 2 year deal, this drill will not come back around again until 2025. However, welfare recipients have to prove they have been looking for work in order to continue receiving their benefits. Meanwhile, Ukraine gets a blank check to spend as much money as they want on a war they cannot *win*.
  4. OK. But, I'd be slightly curious to know your reason for trying to pick up women in a bookstore. If you were looking for a *smart* woman to be your wife or significant other, a bookstore could be one spot. But, I would think a university or college campus would have provided access to *educated* women too. Otherwise, if your objective was to find a woman to smash, there were plenty spots besides Barnes & Noble. Overall, you're right in that most people have to find their lane(s) when it comes to making those connections. However, the shortest distance between two points is still a line. Be direct. Saves a whole lot of time, energy and resources.
  5. My kitchen is the nearest soul food spot in my community.
  6. While I'm happy for the newlyweds, they didn't have to put Jonathan on blast out there crying and sh8t. That dude is a grown azz Black man and a professional athlete. There's no reason to provide visual proof of his moment of vulnerability...joy and happiness.
  7. https://apnews.com/article/republican-primary-trump-desantis-pence-christie-b0a18225ec5f9d0f53aa0f08b292a2f3 Senator Tim Scott has tossed his hat into the ring to run for POTUS on the GOP ticket. Scott was welcomed into the race by none other than former POTUS Orange Julius. Strategic move by OJ. In addition to Scott, the GOP clown car includes Orange Julius, Ron DeStupid, Nikki Air Haley and Vivek Ritalin Ramaswamy. They might need a bigger vehicle if former VP Mike Lfy Pence, former Gov. Chris Cupcake Christie and NH Gov. Chris Schmooze Sununu toss their sombreros into the ring as well. Orange Julius knows that neither Tim Scott nor most of the field of dreamers really stands a chance of getting the GOP nomination. DeStupid is probably the strongest opponent to Orange Julius but he's lacking personality and brain power. Some folks believe Tim Scott is really running for VP or some other cabinet level appointment. Another uncle Ben Carson.
  8. It has already been confirmed that after one dies, someone else either gets the stuff they left behind and/or throws it in the trash. Also, any money leftover gets spent foolishly too.
  9. That's a great question. If *anybody* could confirm it, I believe the world would be a lot different.
  10. Correct. Those with inside knowledge will be the luckiest. They will sucker other folks into investing when the mine is almost dried up.
  11. A fool and his money are soon to be parted. Even if someone feels and/or believes luck is on their side, the safest best is to only gamble as much as they afford to lose. That's why most people only spend a few dollars on lottery tickets. Only an idiot would blow a whole check or life savings trying to hit the Powerball.
  12. @Pioneer1, nah bro, I didn't think you were suggesting a kumbaya with the devil. As you already know, these threads allow my tangential response about what Black folks need to do ( @Cynique ) especially when dealing with them. There's no harm in making Chess moves as long as one knows how to play the game and stays on code.
  13. The debt ceiling has been raised 68 times and counting. The US keeps modifying how much money it can print and/or afford to pay back. The whole debt ceiling thing is a silly exercise because whichever countries the US owes money will never call in the markers. The world economy is dependent on America in one way or another. That's how America can send $80 billion to Ukraine for a war they cannot win but the government want to cut benefits to American citizens.
  14. Human history has provided us with accepted truths that are passed down through generations. As human beings continue to explore and discover, we re-evaluate truths or debunk them and find new truths. Personally, as someone who generally believes half of what I can see and none of what I hear, I know truth through intuition and/or verification. Of course, I've been alive long enough to develop a decent database of knowledge, skills and abilities. My truth filter works fairly well.
  15. I wouldn't get too starry-eyed over or heap any praise on white folks in New York. While the northern whites from New York to New England closed ranks, built their enclaves and stayed within their tribes, they all shared on thing in common....anti-Black sentiment. No trace amount of African ancestry in white folks will give them the faintest sense of kinship to Black folks. They hate us. Black folks need to put white celebrities on ignore or call block. These people are agents of distraction. Look at how they're used to destroy Black men. Black folks should keep all communication and interactions with white folks minimal. We can be cordial, work together and conduct business. Nothing extracurricular with white folks. Once allowed into a house they don't leave. Their main goal will be to own that house and everything in it. In fact, the sooner Black folks all over the planet close ranks and build their own power-base and network among ourselves, the better chance we have of overthrowing and replacing the system of racism white supremacy.
  16. A while back, I wrote a post about the debt ceiling as a moving goal post. Another refrain of mine is that American political parties are two sides of the same coin. It's definitely a game. There are many forms of TV entertainment. Instead of watching soap operas, series or reality shows, etc., I watch the news.
  17. She was one if the most iconic women in the performing arts. Her influence can be seen in other artists. Thanks for the music and performances. RIP Ms. Tina Turner aka Anna Mae Bulkock.
  18. The 1st question that comes to my mind is where was the AfroAmerican community when a 14-year old boy was being railroaded for a crime he did not commit. The family was forced to flee the town as they too were unprotected from the threat of a lynch mob. Yet, 79 years later, conditions in America remain unchanged to the extent that AfroAmericans can be helplessly executed without the benefit of a fair trial and/or jury. Jordan Neely is the latest example of it. AfroAmericans idly sit by afraid to fight the same racists who if given a chance would kill them too. Nowadays, the saddest part of it is there are AfroAmericans who would either sanction the murder of their own and/or use the legal system to forgive and free the murderers. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (NY) and Attorney General Daniel Cameron (KY) are just two examples of AfroAmericans complicit in upholding the system of racism white supremacy. Unfortunately, there are many more Black folks just like them.
  19. Same here. I enjoy reading the lively discussions with my folks. It doesn't matter whether or not we agree or disagree, the dialog is most important. Of course, I can find a certain amount of humor in everything.
  20. @Stefan, clearly, the posters here are not meeting your standards of journalism. So, I'm slightly curious to know what brings you back to this particular discussion forum.
  21. Hang in there brotha Troy. I know it's not easy. Thank you for providing this space for us. Much appreciated.
  22. Same here. Got the same error message and just figured the server required maintenance. Glad to see we're back up and running. Hope it was not a devil hack attack.
  23. I don't know if the family will get $100M but there's been enough information unearthed to make a stong case for them to get a favorable award.
  24. One of greatest men on the gridiron and off the field. Always on his owm terms. Thanks for the contributions made to better humanity. RIP Mr. Jim Brown.
  25. Unfortunately, it started with white folks dumping heroin into AfroAmerican communities back in the 1970s. They killed off AfroAmerican leaders in the 1960s. For their pain and suffering and leader-less, in major Black cities across America, they turned AfroAmericans into junkies. White society's reaction to the opioid *crisis* and Fentanyl and their hands off approach to crystal method is another case study in a tale of two Americas. Their drug laws are set up specifically to punish Black folks. Those same laws do not apply to white folks proportionately. I have zero compassion or empathy for white folks suffering from drug addiction. They are wasting their white skin, er, privilege.
