GATED COMMUNITIES…and the ZIMMERMAN CASE…

The first time I actually saw a gated community it was a warm summery day, and I was woman-drivingdriving around with Mother Rochelle looking for some beach front property to buy.

We were in Coney Island when we came upon it… a gated community.  We were kind of in awe of it… because it was kind of off by itself.  We did not recognize immediately what it was that we were looking at… as it is just not the kind of thing you see in New York City.  And certainly not out in Coney Island ever… least ways I had not.

But by this time Coney Island had been converted into, I guess you could say, some type of urban oasis.  Gone were all the tall brick story housing complexes that used to line the skies in this section of Brooklyn, known to the world as Coney Island.  The place looked Coney_Island_beach_July4xtotally different and it was hard to believe what had once been.  I didn’t see the boardwalk or the amusement rides… none of it.   It was as if somebody had taken a pencil and erased it… all.

Then that is when Mother and I spotted it, a group of houses surround by a brick wall.  Up until this point… some time ago I had heard about gated communities but had never seen 1… or thought about it when I had seen them.  Because who thinks of these kind of things… gated communities?  I see such structures as just being more or less just  a group of apartments or houses… or housing complexes… or new housing developments.   But this place was  fenced in with wires going all around… almost like a prison.   The houses looked like that they had been shoved in and bunched up on top of each other… and that is what caught our attention.

The houses did not look like anything spectacular to me.  None of them had any real land around them.   Just a group of regular New York style non-distinct houses, of various kinds.  Nothing big or fancy.  Nothing that looked rizie… just plain coneyLogocommon ordinary houses.  Nothing to brag about.  But they were fenced in by this brick wall that went all the way around it.

I remember saying to Mother, “Look Mother, a gated community.”

351410_1329I was surprised to see it… and especially in New York City… and Mother was too.  And even more especially in Coney Island… a place where nothing but public housing complexes used to stand, for as far as the eyes could see… but they were now all gone.

I can’t remember having seen 1 public housing complex that day in this section of Coney Island, that I used to visit often once upon a time.

Actually, they are not all certainly gone… at least ways not all of New York’s public housing… otherwise known as projects.  But many have now been transformed.  The old tenants moved or were forced out by the city of the developers, who had come in to possess this waterfront section of Brooklyn,  known as Coney Island.  And the buildings that those people all once used to live in have become condos and co-ops, which are very popular in New queensbridge_housesYork City among those who can afford it.  Or they were torn down totally.  And that was what Mother Rochelle and I were looking at… an area where all the old housing complexes were totally gone.

But while writing my blog, THE ZIMMERMAN CASE WHAT A FARCE, I had heard in 1 of the YouTube videos that I put into that blog… how Zimmerman’s gated community had had a few recent robberies.

In 1 of those videos…. 1 of the homeowners, said to have been 1 of Zimmerman’s neighbor in the gated community… he commented on how a couple of the houses had recently been broken into and robbed.  How Zimmerman had stopped robbers from breaking into his house.  And he also stated this was the reason for why Zimmerman should have been on his guard for any suspicious characters in their neighborhood… being that Zimmerman was Captain of the neighborhood watch.Screen-Shot-2012-05-25-at-4.40.19-PM

Since having heard that I have been thinking…  Gated community… neighborhood watch?

Didn’t people move into gated communities for security?

Isn’t that the purpose for gated communities coming about?

george-zimmerman-found-not-guiltyThen why did Zimmerman’s complex… being that it was supposed to be a gated community need to have a neighborhood watch?

Something was not working here.  Either the police in Sanford were not doing their job.  Or the gate… usually some type of high brick wall… wasn’t working either.

Or maybe these people were just lying.stay-out-sign  Maybe they hadn’t had those break-ins.

I would love to see the records regarding break-ins in Zimmerman’s neighborhood.  And I would love to know exactly how long their neighborhood watch had been in effect?

Were these just a bunch of fearful people?

I mean who else would elect to live in a gated community… except for people who are fearful of the world around them.

T120328124340-burton-gated-communities-story-tophe gate in gated communities is meant to keep out certain elements.  These elements usually mean… the wrong kind of people… drugs and the woes that the rest of the world has to face simply by living among them.

Was Zimmerman’s complex actually under attack by the outside world?

If outsider’s were coming in… which as stated by the man in that video… some young black men robbing them… who was letting them in?

imagesMost gated communities have security… mostly at the main entrance gate if nowhere else.

When I was in Altamonte Springs a small Florida town not far out from Sanford, where Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin… I recall visiting a friend whose parents lived in such a complex.  While driving into the complex upon her directions to me… I drove through the front gate and up to her parent’s house.  At the time it had not dawn on me that they had lived in a gated community.  I saw it only as an up-scale new housing complex.

When you consider it… isn’t it kind of insane to believe you can lock yourself away from all the trayvon-martintrouble of the world?

Evidently, Zimmerman’s housing complex had some problems.  Otherwise there would not have been a need for someone like George Zimmerman… operating in the capacity in which they had assigned him… Captain of their neighborhood watch.

the-case-against-wannabe-cop-george-zimmermanWhat were they paying all that money for… if their gated complex was no safer than that of the people on the other side of their wall, which was suppose to be their gate of secured safety.

Had none of them considered that the elements which lived insidethe-zimmerman-trial among them was just as dangerous… if not more so than many of the people on the opposite side of their wall?

2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverBecause George Zimmerman lived within their midst.

Well, God bless…  Another beautiful day.  I got to get going.  Gotta edit some video footage for my television show.  In case you didn’t know you can check segments of it on youtube.  Just type in my nameme resized... as it appears on my book cover, THE BISHOP’S WIFE.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the day… and your weekend.  Might be good stock-footage-fishermen-and-pier-are-silhouetted-with-waves-coming-in-at-the-beach-in-footage-shot-near-sunrisebeach weather.  A couple of Sunday’s ago that is where we were… aching foot and all.  My mother said salt water is good for healing the body.  So, we were out on the water front listening to the sound of the waves washing in… and getting our feet wet.  Bye… and enjoy.

WHAT IS ALL THE HYPE ABOUT??? WHO IS EDWARD SNOWDEN…

Concerning that guy held up in Russia.  The 1 who supposedly spilled all the beans on the U.S. bigbrothereavesdropping on its citizens.

I really don’t get it.  Didn’t George Orwell spill the beans on that years ago, when he wrote that book that Big Brother was watching us… or would be.  Since the book was futuristic.

So, the future has arrived and we find that the United States and probably every other country on this planet, with any kind of good sense is listening in on its citizens.  Lets face it in the world that we live in today… it probably is a good thing that somebody other than thieves, murders… spies… rapists and espionage people etc. may or may not be listening in.

Oftentimes it appears that the wrong parties have the upper hand.   In watching some of these television shows a lot more contracts would be put out for somebody to kill his or her husband or wife over the phone… or some other kinds of craziness… if they didn’t believe somebody might be listening in.

1984We live in a time of great peril.  Hadn’t you heard, ‘Evil is everywhere?’

When George Orwell wrote ‘1984’ few people would have believed that 1 person would have be able to predict so much in our changing times that would someday come to pass.  But Orwell did.

Was he a prophet?

Or was he just a person with a keen sense of being able to look at things as they were, and then be able to assess how they would be some time in the distant future?

When Orwell wrote ‘1984’ it was just 1949.  What had been going on in the world then?

Had the first man walked in space by then?

No.

Had Kennedy been elected?

cnsaedwardsnowdenmgnNo.

So, what was happening in 1949 that Orwell could sit down somewhere and write a book called, 1984, that predicted events and changes in the world which did eventually come about?

One major thing was television.  Electronic gadgets were starting to come into the market.  The first analogtvcommercial computer was introduced… didn’t do well and wasn’t well received.  But it was there.

Color came into the homes when RCA developed the first colorized television set.  China became a communist country and Russia unleashed the making of its first atomic bomb.  Family incomes were growing, consumer purchases were sky rocketing, and the U.S. had emerged out of the Great Depression… and the 2nd World War had come to an end, 4 years earlier in 1945.

Undoubtedly, the U.S. at this point had emerged as a great World power.  1368224853201The Cold War between Russia and America was fully under way, and America’s Allies and its strength was growing.  The C.I.A. was becoming active in aiding in setting up governments, and placing men of soon-to-be-power into power around the world.  And Orwell was a journalist working for the BBC… the British Broadcasting Company.

When Orwell, a British Subject, as they say… and working for the BBC… wrote ‘1984’ he depicted a world run by a government that was omnipresent… observing all its people at all times… an existence totally politically directed by those in control…and where Big Brother’s eyes and ears were everywhere… an ever present force.

traffic-cameraWhen you go outside today… out to the street and look up you see cameras on the street lights… hanging off of roof tops.  They even tiny little cameras and mics that can be placed into very unsuspecting places… even in public places all about.  Places like hotels… lobbies… even bathrooms… school rooms… commuter rails… even on someone’s person… etc.   Therefore, it should not surprise you that you are being recorded… or your actions watched.   We all have watched enough TV to see how detectives can go and acquire video footage from surveillance cameras in lobbies… Satellites-in-spaceparking lots etc… in order to aid them in tracking down criminals.  Cabs have them… police cars have them… and sometimes full camera crews.

If they can use such equipment to observe and track criminals… what made you think it could not be used to observe you too?

I was surprised when someone told me that all I had to do was Google my address… and see what came up.  What came up was not just a picture… but a whole satellite viewing of where I live… up and down my street… all around my house.

gps-navigation-system-4Then take for instance GPS systems… they can tell your whereabouts at any given time.  You use them as directional devices, but that directional device can be used to track you.  Such devices are embedded inside vehicles too by manufacturers.  So, if you fail to make your monthly payment they no longer have to search or try to figure out where you are… if you are trying to avoid repossession.  No, not any more.  They can push it up on a computer and come right to where you are… wherever that it .  And no matter where that is they will take possession of their property, depriving you of a vehicle until payment and fees are paid in full.

Rental cars too have embedded in them the same thing.  So that if a car is not returned timely the rensocial-mediatal agency can go and get their property, as well.

When I read things on the social network it amazes me just how much information people share over such public outlets as the internet.  They list their jobs… home address… phone numbers… email addresses… schools they went to… towns they live in… had lived in… show pictures of their children… list the names of their relatives… and show their pictures etc…

When Edward Snowden decided that he could no longer work for whatever governmental agencyedward_snowden that had hired him here in the U.S.A… because his conscious bothered him concerning how this government is secretly listening in on conversations of American citizens… my only question that came to mind was this…

http://www.mynews3.com/content/news/story/Leaker-Edward-Snowden-remains-held-up-in-Russian/QfJi0z6lE0GP4PqiP6cuvw.cspx

Out of all the countries Snowden could have ran away to… why imagesRussia?

I have heard people speak of Russia… ex-citizens of that country.  And that government routinely indulges in practices that cannot even begin to come close to just listening in on its citizens conversations.

http://fox43.com/2013/07/24/snowden-still-being-held-up-in-moscow-airport/#axzz2aZnKWl4Lrussian-people1

I was sitting in one of my college classes once… which wasn’t so very long ago contrary to popular belief… and this Russian woman came into our class to visit and speak about her country.  She was a guest of our Professor.  She spoke of how in Russia you could not just go into business unless the government allowed you.  She talked about how the Russian government controlled the newspapers and television… all the media outlets in Russia.  And how everyone there… in Russia was under the restraint and control of the Russian government.

So, isn’t it ironic to anyone outside of myself… did you not think it strange that Edward Snowden would have ran from Japan to go to Russia london-bombings2trying to seek asylum there?

It is very contradictory at the very least.

We are living in the turmoils of the many diverse problems in this world today, which include bombing of public places to kill and/or hurt as many people as possible.

I am one who believes that if the crooks and hackers can assess our systems, read our emails, go into our accounts… listen in on our conversations, go up over the internet to case our exact location and homes… apartments… where we eat… what we buy… then why would Snowden’s disclosure that our government is doing it… be of any great surprise or shock to me or any one of us?

http://www.nbcnews.com/technology/nsa-tool-tracks-all-internet-conversations-says-guardian-6C10808165

moscowIt wasn’t… least ways not to me.   I was never upset when after 911 they started stopping subway trains in New York City to do random bomb searches.  And neither were any of the other passengers on the subways I rode with… we all understood the times we had just stepped into when the Twin Towers came tumbling down after being flown into by those 2 airplanes.

Why should I be?

Being held up for those searches we all understood… as we knew they were trying to protect us.  Save more people from being killed senselessly.  So, if the government has taken to listening in on phone calls and watching people… whose fault is that?

Whose fault?

The perpetrators.  Clearly, they would love our government to sit back and do nothing… but wait until the7snow_den_ed111_4 next strike comes… like helpless children.

Did not some kind of plan have to go into effect in defense of people possibly flooding into America to destroy her, and those of us who live here.

Yes, I do believe that Snowden should be prosecuted.  Because he chose that job.  I am sure that he was not brought into that job without the U.S. government informing him that he was going to come in contact with highly classified information.  And based upon that… and I would have to believe that any oath he may have taken in order to obtain that job… which I assume paid Ed Snowden royally… he had a duty and responsibility to live up to.  Up to the secrecy and security that that position called for him to maintain.

Information that has to do with the security of our country, and the means by which that security-clearance-representationinformation is extracted should be left to those who are the safe-keepers.  However, should methods and techniques such as using undue force, harassment and intimidation etc. to acquire that information… those things I am totally and 100 per-cent against.  And these are things that I hope anyone being party do bring forward… but I cannot put listening-in-on… upon that same level.

Now, had Snowden’s information been of something along the nature that may have caused mass harm or life threatening… like say the government was doing something that was detrimental to us… our health and/or welfare then I would weigh in on Snowden’s right of consciousness to do the right thing by disclosing that razr_phoneinfo to us.  But to merely tell us that we are being listening in on by the government…  No, that information played more to divulging our country’s security practices, more than any personal life threatening issues that we all needed to be made aware of.

I cannot begin to tell you the number of times I called the New York Telephone company to complain about other people being on my phone line.  I could hear whole 2-way conversations.  And I was sure that they could do the same when it came to my calls.

old-telephoneThere was a time in this country and most countries, I suspect… when telephones first got started that there were nothing but what they then called ‘party-lines.’  Telephone lines where you could pick up the phone and if someone was on that line talking to someone else, you just hung up and waited until you could Old_box_telephoneget a clear line.  So, the ability to listen in on phone lines… and phone calls has a very long history, which dates back to the beginning of telephone service.

Lets face it,  we are all aware that most of the phone lines and/or computer internet lines that we work on and/or talk over, and text over are not secure.  In fact, when the portable phones came into cordless-telephone-ge-intact2being… you remember those cordless phones with the long antennas.  Everybody knew that you could be listened in on at any given time, due to the lines crossing, by anybody in your neighborhood.

I frankly do not know anyone who talks about anything really important over a telephone… or in an email… or in a text.

Detroit+Mayor+Arraigned+Obstruction+Perjury+QsJYuT3ZKoElWe all of us…   Or should I say most of us remember that it was text messages that brought down the Mayor of Detroit inme resized... his escapades with his Office Administrator, Kwame Kilpatrick.

So, then how important was Snowden’s disclosure?

Not very.  It just let out of the bag… and made public to all the world something that most people already understood to be happening or could possibly be happening anytime they picked up a telephone or cell 2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverphone to use it.

I would imagine that you would be very hard press at these times to find any country that is not using some type of surveillance system and/or listening devices in order to stem the tide of bombings, country take overs, aid in fighting against drugs and/or corruptness 1101831128_400on ever level everywhere.

George Orwell when he wrote his book, 1984, saw many things.  But he did not see the changes that would become necessary in a world that man would turn against man, for no unknown reason… or a just cause.  Outside of shear hatred of a culture… and the freedoms of 1 country over another.  Or a right to practice a different religion.

Snowden a 30 year old ex-C.I.A and National Security Agency employee leaked details on several top secret United States and British surveillance what-do-you-think-of-national-security-leaker-edward-snowden-pollintelligence.  A proclaimed Buddhist and whistle blower, Snowden grew up primary in North Carolina.  And when all of this broken… this story on U.S.A secret surveillance programs… and about Snowden turning over these highly confidential government secrets, he had been assigned to a U.S. post in Japan, where which he later fled to Russia seeking asylum from the United States as a spy… espionage and theft of government information.

Well, God bless…  Well, I’ve got to run.  I’ve noticed that the campuses are starting to coYellow_school_buses_Pittsburghme alive again.  Saw a few school buses drive pass me today… a clear signal that school is just about in again.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.  The weather here is beautiful.  Such a relief from all the tremendous heat we had been going through.

UPDATE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013…  Russia has now given asylum to Snowden.  Supposedly it is for a year.   But some South American country had offered Snowden asylum prior… but Snowden did not accept it.

It all strikes me as being a bit too odd.  Why would this guy want to defect to Russia… of all places?

If he is so big on human right… the right of the public citizens… our right to not have government listening in on our conversations… then why choose Russia, of all places?

I am beginning to believe that Snowden was… and is a Russian spy.   From the very beginning this guy was a edward-snowden-interviewlittle to shady, as they say in ‘the hood.’  First he was ‘anonymous.‘  Then he ran away getting as quickly as he could to Russia?

This whole supposed whistle-blowing thing… I believe it will be proven to have been some kind of  a scheme, cooked up as a well thought out plan for Snowden to have released American Intelligence claiming it was due to  his conscience bothering him over what the American Government was doing.  When it was nothing more than sheer just fabrication on his part and those working with him, to cover-up who Snowden really is… and just who he was really working for in the first place.

Truthfully speaking if they found out today that this whole thing was just 1 big fat lie… I would not be surprised.

Who in their right mind defects to Russia… a country with a history of routinely victimizing its citizens and invading their privacy?

Something is way out of whack here.  And it just does not smell right.

FATHER IMPREGNATES 3 of HIS OWN DAUGHTERS…HAVING 6 CHILDREN WITH THEM…

I need not tell you just how intolerable I found this story… which I happened to come across on Facebook.•Aswad-Ayinde

I am not liberal in my thoughts concerning people who violate children.  I have no tolerance for them whatsoever.  And this particular news item only heightens my disdain.

This particular person is a man… if you care to call him that… a father, if you care to even half way call him that… who lives in Patterson, New Jersey.  He at some point was very involved with the group that Lauren Hill emerged from, the Fugees.  He was said to have been the music 1091245_v_jpg8053ea7f21e7e63cabec3d18b183c8e2video producer of 1 on their videos, Killing Me Softly.

But here is the story in a nutshell as I read it.  The man’s 12 year old daughter pops up pregnant.  And I guess the mother was questioning the child.

The man then told his wife, ‘I think the baby is mine.’1297448293769_ORIGINAL

He what????

He said, “I think the baby is mine.”

http://www.vladtv.com/mobile/detail/157990/

It is not amazing to me how bad you begin to look when you begin to do the unthinkable.  How 1 lives with themselves knowing that they have gone into forbidden territory is beyond me.  There is no way this person could have thought that what he was doing was right.  Because for 1 thing he kept it hid for years while making 1 daughter after another… then again and and again… pregnant.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/aswad-ayinde-director-fugees-video-killing-softly-charged-impregnating-daughters-article-1.168396

“I think the baby is mine.”

This would be enough to have me on death row somewhere.  Because he would not have220ASPQB683-417 walked out alive.  And I am not just saying that.

I recall thinking this sometime after my son was born… ‘that if anyone touched him,… my son… I would go to prison.  And I meant it.

So, then I have to wonder about this mother?????????

The woman has 5 daughters with her husband…  this man… again if you want to call him that…  who had been  a music video director for a video of the Fugees.   Now, 3 of this woman’s older the-fugees_4802daughters had turned up pregnant… giving them 6 grand-children.  For him they would be 6 grand, and 6 more daughters for him… since all the babies were his which he had with his daughters… and their mothers, whom his wife, their mother gave birth to.

How does this happen?

http://pmnewsnigeria.com/2013/07/29/man-impregnates-daughter-4-times/

Then another 1 of the woman’s daughters turns up pregnant.  She was her 12-year-old.me resized...

I guess after making that confession his conscious must have started in on him… though he really couldn’t have had  much of 1 to have done what he has done.   But he told the woman, his wife… the girl’s mother… the 12 year old’s mother… the same mother of his other daughters, whom he had babies by already…  that he had also begun working on their 4th daughter too.  A little 8-year-old girl… whom he claims to only have performed oral sex on.

Okay, if you want to believe that.  But a man without boundaries… has no boundaries.  So, I doubt that ‘only oral sex’ thang.   Even THAT was 1 step far too much for someone who was supposed to protect his children… not abuse them.

I really can’t go on with this…  I will have to talk to you later.  I am 2ab-the-bishop-wifecoversick to my absolute stomach with this story.

And these are black folk.

Truly, a demonic spirit and/or spirits were working in that house.  And a corrupt mind to perpetrate  it all.

This man …according to the mother… these young mother’s mother… said that her husband was trying to create his own ‘blue bloodline.’  abraham_post1

Royalty????

Really?

So, he thought he was Abraham?

Only, Abraham did not mess sexually with his own children.  Nor did Abraham deal in incest.  He sent a servant to his wife’s family house to seek a wife for his son, Issac.  Which in those times was a traditional thing to so.

God help those children… all of them.

Well, God bless…  I cannot imagine being 12 with my stomach pushed out… having to go to school… and this story comes out.  Everybody in Patterson is going to know this story.  All her little friends… her friends parents… her teachers.  And this is what this man was doing in his house to his children.DeBarge

He was breeding them.  Like some kind of animals.  My Lord…  help mankind, Lord God…  Please… please… please.  Save us from ourselves…

This story is as bad as the father of the DeBarge family.  The only difference is we never found out until they were grown people.   But their adult lives were as much a wreck trying to cope with it, as their haunted childhoods.  And these stories are not rare as I am beginning to find out just by looking up this story.  Click the links below… it proves it.

Then there was that man in Austria.  He kept his daughter locked in some hole down in his basement for 20 years… impregnating her with 9 children.

It is unbearable…  Madness…  Truly…

PLASTIC SURGERY AND CHURCH PEOPLE… AND BLEACHING…

When you look at all the blotched plastic surgeries made to people faces and body why would you want to risk m_hang-mioku1it?

images2And I mean some real BLOTCHES.

But it appears that plastic surgery and bleaching, lightening your skin color, is growing ever more popular among church people these days.  And especially amongst women in the pulpit.

I was on YouTube recently watching some videos a week or so ago, and I came upon this woman by the name T. L. Penny, whom I think can really peach.  Well, she could at 1 point.  But I don’t think she is as good as she used to be when I first heard her.  But in watching that video something suddenly struck me.  At first I did not notice it… but lthen it finally hit me.  I thought she had been darker.

So, I went back to look at some older videos of her on YouTube.  Low and behold, I was right.  She had been darker before.

Look at the distinct difference in her nose, her lips and other facial features.  It is not hard to see that Pastor Penny must have decided to go all the way, and did not just stop at the bleaching of her skin.Penny_Green-resize

The peculiar part about T. L. Penny is this.   I had gone up over her website when I initially ran across her over the internet… which  is something I just do… and often.  I like to check out various websites all the time as I come across them and/or their links.

I like checking out my competition… meaning other graphic artists work… their layout and designs etc.  So, while viewing T. L. Penny’s site she had this picture of herself.  Which, of course, there is nothing big about having a picture of yourself on your site, as everybody usually has a picture or 2 if not more of them-self on their websites.    But, however, I though it a bit peculiar at the time, because the picture looked nothing like T. L. Penny.   It looked nothing like the woman in the penny_new1video, whose link I had just come across on YouTube.

So, yeah it struck me as being odd that someone would have a website and would have posted a picture that looked nothing at all like them… with not 1 other picture of herself on that website anywhere of her otherwise.  But at that time I just rationalized that T. L. Penny liked that picture so she posted it.  This mind you was long before her plastic surgery and the bleaching of her skin had taken place.  That picture at that time, however, is today very close to what T. L. Penny has managed to have transformed herself into looking like… thanks to some aid from a surgeon somewhere.  So, I guess at that time that I saw that picture, she was speaking it into the atmosphere… and had been saving the money to get it done.

http://obnoxioustv.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/checkout-what-t-l-penny-wore-to-her-daughters-wedding/

This had been about the third time while watching something on YouTube  that I have Bishop-Co-Pastor072010bhappened to notice that somebody in ministry… mostly women… had become bleachers… and/or had otherwise gone under a plastic surgeon’s knife.  And the list seems to be growing.

Not too long ago I noticed this about a very prominent Bishop’s wife.  I could see that she had both bleached, and also had some plastic surgery work done.  That was Bishop Paul Morton’s wife, Debra B. Morton.  She appears to have made herself younger… lighter, and also had some things done to enhance her looks.DebraMorton

Also, a while back.. a few years back to be exact… I had noticed that Paula White, Pastor Paula… had also gone under the plastic surgeon’s knife.  I saw it right off when first began transitioning from what she used to look like to what she looks like today.  In fact, shortly after that transformation I had read that both Paula White and her husband at the time, Randy White… had both gone under the knife, and were then being investigated for misusing church funds to do it.  As well as, having made numerous other type of purchases with church lmoney.

It is amazing to me that these people profess to love the Lord… and all that He has done.  Can quote how when God finished His work in Genesis.  How He called it all good.  And then at the very end of all that He had done He called it all ‘very good.’

Then if God feels that when He has created something that it is good, who are we to Beautiful-GOD-s-creation-god-the-creator-10864891-800-600believe we can come behind Him and improve upon what God has done?

Don’t they believe that God has created them as He would have them to be?

And let me ask you this question…

If God has created it…  should be messing with it?

imagesAnd I mean anything… everything which God has created… should we messing with Paula_Whiteany of it… believing we can do it better… or enhance it?

Man has corrupted all of what we now eat.  Our water… the rain… the ground… the food… the cattle… herds… produce…  the atmosphere… EVERYTHING.   And we cannot undo it.n_jackson_counselor_040318.video-260x195

None of the food or vegetables we eat taste like what it used to taste like some 10 or 20… or 30  or 40 years ago.  Man has tainted everything.  And man has done it believing that he can out do God.  Which is impossible.mj+plastic+surgery

So, here are some prominent church people… and they believe that their plastic surgeons can improve upon what God has already done.  Let us see what time will have to say about this matter.  Because just like Michael Jackson… I believe there will come a day when these people will not be able to walk out their front door exposing their faces.  Because they will come to look so hideous.

Our faces and even our bodies are in a constant evolution.  They do not stay the same.  They are not the same as they were when we were born, and they will not be the same when we die.  So, if the aging process continually is changing our faces, how can surgery on your face or body at a any point in your life not also be subject to lPlies_kirk_franklin_ife changes?

They have to be aware of this.  So, being aware… because they have to be aware of this.  So, being aware of this they still want to subject themselves to the possibility of ending up 1 big grotesque mess.  Because they played with something they should not have.

Me… I would not do it.  I just would not do it.  And that is not to say that I ever liked anything about me.  But over time I can see where time has made a pleasant difference in my overall appearance.

I never realized that even Kirk Franklin had paid a visit to the plastic surgeon.  And who knows who else.  There are so many of them… many in the recording industry.

Pastor Jackie McCullough appears to have gotten into Jackie+McCulloughthe bleaching swing.  Something which many in Africa and in the West Indies seem to be indulging in.

CindyTrimmFeatureLike Cindy Trimm and Juanita Bynum many women of the Cloth are electing go up under a plastic surgeon’s knife and/or bleach their skin in order to achieve something they undoubtedly longed for.  Beauty.  And don’t mind paying for it.

But beauty is elusive.  And it is not long lasting… and desire of it really stems from vanity …and also covetousness.

It was Solomon who spoke of vanity.  I guess he was not called the wisest man for nothing.  There is truly a lot to be said about vanity… and it is going on in the pulpit.  And these plastic surgeons are reaping the hqdefaultbenefits of it.

To bad all that money is not going towards feeding the poor… or trying to clothe them.  Or maybe even trying to aid in supplying housing for the needy… the fatherless or the motherless.

What does this signify for the church?images4

Or to the young women in the church… whom we are supposed to teaching ‘to love themselves?’

bishop-randy-photo-3-227x300I came across this picture of T. L. Penny and had to include it.

This apparel strikes as something contradictory to real gospel teaching.

What could have possessed this so-called preacher to dress like this?20130208-062721

This is the dress she wore as the Mother of the Bride.  Not only were her breast exposed… but take a look at how short the skirt was.

I don’t know what I’m talking about.

SKIRT???

She has on no clothes… as my father would say.  She really isn’t wearing anything up top.

I’m just wondering if  was she out working on getting herself a husband?

Or just looking for somebody to go home with?

Definitely not somebody who I would turn to for ministry… or even to attempt to correct me.  Or try to show me how to live.

I just keep coming back to this picture.  I can’t believe that any woman who calls herself in service for the Lord would wear such a thing.  I am also wondering if you got implants, as well, to her breast.  Can’t think of any other reason to want to dress wearing something like what she has on in this picture… unless she did.

Now, that I think of it… it reminds me of another YouTube video I saw.  It was video of a prostitute… with her nipples exposed talking about the Lord.

Unbelievable…  Truly diverse times.

DENSEL… DIVORCE OR NO DIVORCE….

2013-07-21-Denzel and Pauletta Google Image-DenzelWashingtonPaulettaWashington30thSjeky6sufUxI was standing in the line at the check-out cash register when I happened to spot the magazine that read, “150 washingtons1Million Dollar Divorce.”  And with that notation on the cover of that magazine was a picture of Densel and his wife, Paulette,  of some near 30  years.

Needless, to say I was a bit shocked, because as far as I knew they adored one another.  And lets face it, based upon all that Densel has said about his family and wife… there is no way that anyone would believe that THAT marriage was not rock solid.

Well, is it or isn’t it?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/12/denzel-washington-divorce_n_3586774.html

The answer is… I don’t know.  But then is it really for me to know.denzel_and_pauletta_t750x550

denzel_washington5Perhaps I should not say this but once while taking some sessions with Spike at Long Island University, about the time that Spike was making Malcolm X.  In one of the sessions a young woman, who had worked closely with the production people.  A fairly attractive, I guess… white woman began talking about Densel in such a way that I could tell she had great disdain for him.  Celebrities attend the Ohio State at USC game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

densel300She claimed he had gotten fresh with her.  Maybe more than a bit flirtatious.  And she apparently did not like it.

Now, I’m not saying this is true.  But it came back to mind when I was reading the front cover of that magazine.

When I initially looked this story up over to internet to see if it were true, I could find nothing on it.  Nspl110552_0331ow, it seems that Densel is out and about saying ‘there will be no divorce.’  He is saying that there is no break-up inspite of what seems to not be 1 rumor …but rumors.

Densel Washington today is a top of his game a very high grossing actor… a super big action movie hero and heart throb.  His world today is a very far cry since his days on the small screen,  as a doctor at St. Elsewhere… or something or other like that, a hospital series that was on TV… some maybe 20 years ago.  At his leisure these days Densel commands upward and over $20 million per film.

http://www.theroot.com/buzz/denzel-washington-denies-divorce-rumorsGoldene Kamera 2012 - Arrivals

Densel and Paulette started dating in 1977… 3 or 4 years later they married.  He was then a struggling and aspiring actor, and she was an denzela-and-famactor/dancer, some 5 years his senior.  They have been married 29 years… and are the parent of 4 or 5 children.

Since Densel is declaring that his marriage is not over… I guess unlike so many other couples… they both must feel that their marriage is worth fighting for.

Either that or all this talk about divorce really is… nothing but senseless rumors.

And I say bravo… to that.  Which ever 1 it is…sanaa-lathan-43rd-annual-naacp-awards-01

The alleged other woman is this… from what I gather, is actress Lanaa Lathan, of that hit movie ‘Love & Basketball.’

Didn’t she used to be  Omar Epps’ girl-friend years ago?

Lathan looks good now…and has always been pretty.  But Densel’s wife is beautiful.  And I know whatever he does… if this thing might be true…  Densel is going to be thinking about his kids… and the effects upon them and their mother.  And, of course, his pocketbook… otherwise that $150 million divorce article might come true.

At this stage of the game I believe Denzel to be mature enough to definitely not be going through that thing what Donald Trump and Ivana went through.  That thing which so many men say they go through.  That…that thing… which is actually an excuse for exchange in sexual partners and/or wives… called ‘mid-life crisis.’

Well, God bless… hope you are having a great week this week.  I am so happy that the BLD080493weather has broke.  I needed the relief from all that heat.

I am still nursing my foot.  Still trying my best to stay off of it as much as I can.me resized...

ZIMMERMAN TRIAL ONE BIG FARCE…

If it had been a Saturday Night Live skit from beginning to end then maybe it might have been funny.  Except for the fact that someone’s life was grievously taken this whole thing was zimmerman-trial-029-061113anything but a joke.

I really do believe that the prosecution… the DA office… should first of all be investigated.  Because this trial was one of the biggest disasters since Ojay Simpson.  From the picking of the jurors to that supposed medical autopsy doctor something was seriously wrong.

Why in the first place were 6 women chosen for the jury, trayvon16n-7and primarily, if not all of them, white?

One could hardly call that a group of George Zimmerman’s peers.  None of them appeared to me to look in anyway like George Zimmerman’s true peers… whom I would believe to be men about his age, of similar backgrounds etc.. etc..  And on what merits were those women chosen?

Based upon things said by Juror #37 once it was all over… if she can be believed… they all went into the jury pool already with their minds made up before they were even chosen to be 0712-george-zimmerman-trial_full_600jurors.   And some like Juror #37 … I have no doubt also had hidden agendas like coming out with their own book deals and television interviews.

So, just how did such people make the cut and end up in that jury box?

Why would anybody question supposed jurors saying… ‘Knock knock, whose there?’

What kind of jury selection did that of retarded examination of possible jurors bring about?George-Zimmerman-trial-graphic

Maybe the prosecution was just trying to determine who was brain dead from who wasn’t.  And he chose the brain dead.

When you truly look at this case you have to ask yourself was the prosecution for Trayvon Martin’s family… or was the DA office working against them?

When doctor KooKoo… don’t know his name and I am not going to try to find out.  But whenShiping+Bao+Opening+Statements+Begin+George+8voGBLehD9pl that man took the stand… now the whole thing really went into the Twight Light Zone.

Was this man really a doctor?

Had he not ever been prepared by the prosecution office for this hearing before hand?

Did he really know anything about doing or handling an autopsy?

To all these questions the answers appears to be a resounding ‘NO.’ap_abc_george_trayovn_kb_130625_wg

From the moment that autopsy doctor opened his mouth the lawyers supposedly representing Trayvon Martin, the victim in this case, should have entered ‘OBJECTION’ after objection.  Through this whole trial Perry Mason and Matlock were probably rolling over in their graves… and they weren’t even real lawyers.  But I sure could hear some ‘objections‘ needed to be stated.

TRAYVON_MARTIN_NEW_PHOTO_1For 1 thing, the autopsy doctor referred to having conferred with another doctor regarding marijuana.  Objection!

Since the other doctor was not there to substantiate that conversation… testimony of such should have been objected to.

Two, that autopsy doctor came to court with some notes which he stated he had prepared the night before.  Objection!

shiping-bao-zimmerman-trial-7-5-2013-2Here was a guy who clearly stated that he could not remember the facts of his autopsy.  Then why should notes written by him some… what 12 or so months later be allowed in as part of his testimony?

If he could not remember any facts on that autopsy, then clearly any notes written mostly recently would be moot and should have been of no apparent good in this case.  Because they would be based upon his present memory or recollections as opposed to when he actually performed the autopsy.

Thirdly, the autopsy doctor was confrontational… and I don’t know how long he had been in this country… but he kept sybrina-fulton-george-zimmerman-trialacting like he didn’t understand English.  So, then how good was a testimony of anyone like that… who might not be really sure about what he was saying?

One has to wonder whether or not the autopsy doctor was paid off?

And if he worked in my department… after that performance on the witness stand… whether he was either performing to be highly incompetent or really is highly incompetent… I would have sent him packing. FIRED!

That guy was definitely highly unprofessional.  And I cannot help but wonder if it was not just an act on his part.

George_Zimmerman_trial__Trayvon_Martin_s_701760000_20130626180400_320_240Nextly, one really has to wonder….

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD THE PROSECUTION CALL this woman to testify?

Did they not go over her testimony with her?

Did they not know what questions to avoid… like ‘what did he say about the man watching him?’   Her response…. ‘He called him a creepy ass cracker.’

WHAT????zimmerman-trial-10jpg-02e79e3655028358

Could that testimony not be any more damaging to this case?

She had to have say that to the prosecution before they even put her on the stand.  So, they knew it would be damaging to Trayvon, for the jurors to hear that.

It appears that the prosecutors in this case purposely set about to sabotage it.  Not once… not twice …but time and time again.

There are various other parts of this case which just do not add up.  Such as why the George Zimmermanprosecution did not push further with all those witnesses on Zimmerman’s side which claimed it was ‘Georggie’s voice‘ that they recognized as the person screaming.

We live in a time of vast technological equipment.  Equipment that is able to do voice recognition… voice separation… voice isolation… voice tracking… voice this and voice that…   Including removal of any additional sounds outside of what you are focusing on.  They have equipment that can do just about anything you want it to do… including voice distortion and correction.

So, then why was no technical equipment used in this case to determine who the possible screamer really was?

328124d1359582482-post-pictures-your-portable-recording-equipment-r0012622Equipment could have been rolled into that court and that recording played over and over for those witnesses… recordings mixed with fake voices screaming to see if they could determine the real recording or the fake.  Experts in sound and voice could have been called in to testify… but they were not.  Nor was any equipment used to decipher whose voice it really was that had been screaming.

I listened to the 911 calls with the screams in the background… and coming from years in radio I have a very good ear.  And those screams did not come from a 27 or 28 year old man.  Nor was the voice non-African American.  And on top of all of that… just ask yourself who screams for help when they have a gun in their 9163075_600x338hand?

Remember, now… that there was no evidence that Trayvon’s hand was ever on Zimmerman’s gun.  There was no George-Zimmerman-Trial-Begins-Videoevidence in fact that Trayvon ever even touched Zimmerman.  The forensic people found no traces of Zimmerman’s DNA under Trayvon’s nails… nor any bruises on his hands or knuckles.

The other issue in this case was the fact that there was so much 911 evidence in this case was against George Zimmerman.  On 1 recording of a 911 operator, she clearly asked Zimmerman ‘are you following him?

To which Zimmerman answered ‘yes.’

trayvon-martin-240That operator told Zimmerman to stop following Trayvon and to get back into his car.   Which George Zimmerman certainly from the outcome in the death of Trayvon… totally ignored.

Also, based upon the merits of that 911 recording alone Zimmerman was clearly stalking Trayvon.  Therefore, Zimmerman was the predator… a man with a gun who approached an unarmed young person, who later was found shot to death by him.  One bullet straight into his heart.

I have no doubt that George Zimmerman perpetrated a hate crime against Trayvon Martin.  And that his call to 911 was a systematic attempt on George Zimmerman’s part to build a scenario for that 911 operator, for circumstances that he would later claim provoked him into the killing  of Trayvon Martin.  An act which I believe came across Zimmerman’s sick mind probably from the moment his eyes fell upon the young black teenage, Trayvon Martin, walking in the darkness of night… in the rain on his way home from the corner store.1_photo

The statements that Zimmerman made in his 911 call clearly show a concise and calculated mind working, at setting up a painted picture of the young black teenage male, whom he was following claiming that he ‘looked like’ a criminal and ‘was out to do’ something illegal.  While on the contrary, Trayvon Martin was just a kid who happened to be on his way home from a local corner store.  And it was Zimmerman who was the 1 working with a criminal mind… and a blind intent to kill a young innocent boy.

There are many people who believe that George Zimmerman was protecting stand-your-ground-stateshimself… standing his ground, if you will.  As Florida has a law called ‘Stand Your Ground.’  Meaning you have a right to protect yourself if you feel that your life is threatened.

Zimmerman had taken self-defense classes, was carrying an armed weapon, and he had aspiration of being a cop and/or lawyer like his dad, who just so happened to be a judge.  Trayvon Martin had not taken any martial arts classes, and was only carrying a small bag of candy and a can of ice tea.  Based upon that… who do you really think was more lethal?

I sincerely hope the Federal Government steps into 03zimmerman-articleLarge-v2this case, because the ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law is a very dangerous piece of law.  It reminds me of the ol’ south when white men would purposely go out seeking to start trouble with a black man or woman. So, they would step in front of them or do something to elicit some type of response from the victim, via their coercion of them.  Whereby many black men and women were either killed, endangered, terrorized, houses burnt down, lost their businesses, and/or chased out of town etc…

Such laws as Stand Your Ground were and are not meant to protect all people… just certain people.  And this case 45994_535195413195131_1440856751_ninvolving the brutal murder of Trayvon Martin is a clear indication of that.

What right more or is necessary …or does this law of ‘Stand Your Ground’ give to anyone, that has or is not given already by the Declaration of Independence in this country?

The Declaration of Independence  states ‘all men’…  not some have more rights than others.  It states that all men are created equalwith certain unalienable rights.  And it begins by saying… We hold these truths to be self-evident.  It then goes on to say…. that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Unalienable rights… what are those?

They are God given rights.1001010_694927910532723_1458365131_n

The right to defend ourselves is a right given to each and everyone of us.  Whereas, such laws as ‘Stand Your Ground’ are intended  and are only applied for certain people… and not for others.

lynch_5Back in the days… lets go to the days after slavery when supposedly the slaves had been freed.  Yet, they were not allowed to look white people directly in the eyes.  And often were taunted into some type of reaction for which they may have been killed… whipped… spat upon… mocked etc…

One could hardly say that they… those black folk then did not have a right to respond to such actions to provoke them.  article-zimmerman3-0713But based upon certain imposed or otherwise implied or ‘understood’ laws, mostly in the old south… laws not written but understood based upon you… meaning black folk… knowing ‘our so-called place.’

Did not Trayvon Martin have a right to go to the store,  and a reasonable right then be able to return home safely without some mad man shooting him down killing him for no apparent reason… other than his skin color?

Where were the rights of Trayvon Martin ever addressed in this case of the City of Sanford vs. Sybrina Fulton,Tracy MartinGeorge Zimmerman?

If indeed, Trayvon had been straddling Zimmerman in a fist fight.

Did not Trayvon Martin have the God given right given to him by nature, if no other law could protect him… than the law of self-preservation?

Why should Travyon Martin then have been demonized for trying to protect himself against someone whom he perceived to be a perpetrator who was out to kill him… when Zimmerman walked upon him and shoved that gun up in his face?

the-case-against-wannabe-cop-george-zimmermanThere was not 1 point or place where you can truly say that the prosecution truly tried to win this case.  They did a lousy job of picking jurists.  They failed to object to various infractions and irregularities as they appeared in this case.  And they never seemed committed to win at all.

If the truth be told this case never should have been held in Sanford, FL… but in some other 171425550county if not state.  The authority and connections of Zimmerman’s judge father made this case an impossible case to get a fair trial in such a small little town… with so much at stake, and so many hands easily washed.

timthumbThis is 1 of those rare times that I must say I disagree with Bill… That is Bill Crosby.  Bill says you can’t prove that Zimmerman is a racist.  Yes, that might well be somewhat true.  But you can’t prove that he isn’t a racist either.  Ooooh, wait a minute…

Wasn’t it Zimmerman who did all that racial profiling of Trayvon Martin in his 911 call, before he actually shot him to death?

That alone gave you a keen insight as to what or how George Zimmerman felt about young black males.  And his actions zimmerman-trial-017-062413spoke the rest.

Anyone who would have racially profile someone as in-dept as George Zimmerman painted that picture in his 911 call, of what Trayvon Martin looked like, his demeanor… his supposed behavior… etc.  cannot be considered anything less than a racist.   And there is no way of esq-trayvon-martin-skittles-032712-xlggetting around that.

Zimmerman said that the person he was ‘following’ was someone who looked like he was up to no good… that it appeared as though he’s on drugs or something… he’s black or Hispanic… he has his hands on his waistband (meaning like he was packing a gun).   And then Zimmerman said… ‘these @#!# they always get away.’

THAT’S NOT RACIAL PROFILING?

http://misterbillohno.newsvine.com/_news/2013/07/10/19392176-transcript-of-george-zimmerman-911-call

http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-trayvon-martin-zimmerman-verdict-2013-7

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/north_america/jan-june13/zimmerman_06-24.html

In the CNN story below the person being interviewed states that the Trayvon Martin case wasusa-trials-zimmerman not a case of racial profiling, because racial profiling can only take place when someone is involved in law enforcement.  I am a dissenting voice to this theory and statement with regard george-zimmerman-surveillance-video-detain_0to this case.  Because that definition can be extended to include anyone ‘believing’ he is a law enforcement officer. There is no secret about George Zimmerman and history of fantasying becoming a cop.

A psychologist should have been brought into this case who could have clearly said that George Zimmerman portrayed certain traits, habits,  and forms of behavior and language  that indicated he felt he was operating as a cop.  When taken into perspective even George’s scio-background, family history, and his history of prepping himself and taking up martial arts etc. all unquestionably show Zimmerman imagesto be a man possessed with a deep rooted desire to be cop, or someone involved in some matter in law enforcement.  Hence, his position as ‘CAPTAIN’ of the neighborhood watch.

It is quite clear that George Zimmerman wanted to be a police officer.  When that avenue did not open up to him… he then tried to study law.  And that failed too.

So, the next step was to join the neighborhood watch.  It is not hard to draw a correlation between that and George actually being a cop on the beat.  George neighborhood-watch-db7357ebde248a6fZimmerman was clearly and unequivocally a wanna-be-cop, and all his actions  and language on the night, in which he confronted Trayvon Martin, attest to it.  And this is not a large leap or even a very short hop to get to.

The other thing about Zimmerman… he obviously suffers from  a feeling of wanting to be a hero.  He appears to be the kind of person you read about who goes to work in a hospital…and awaits an opportunity to unplug somebody’s life support machine… then quickly plug it back in just in the brink of time, then claim that he saved that person’s life.  When in reality he was the person who had thrown the person’s life into jeopardy in the first place.

It is not hard to see that Zimmerman was… or is… a loser.  Perhaps even a black sheep in a family, of George Zimmerman Trial Begins In Floridawhat seems to be full of people who are professionally involved in law enforcement in varying capacities.  But everything and time that George tried to do in order to get in… it would appear that he just could not make the cut.

I had a dispute with a friend over George’s 120515113003-zimmerman-walking-into-court-story-topweight.  Because at 1 point there arose this question of Zimmerman’s weight as opposed to the weight of Trayvon Martin.  Which of course should have also been a key point in this case.

When Zimmerman finally turned himself in… some 45 days after the killing of George Zimmerman (R) enters into the couTrayvon… it was apparent to me that Zimmerman had gone on some type of crash diet during those days.  The issue was  whether or not Zimmerman weighted considerably more than Trayvon Martin?  Even in the picture of above of Zimmerman being lead into court … you can see that the suit he is wearing is a lot larger than he is.  However, during the hearing walla… a much fuller fatter Zimmerman, and his clothes seem to fit him just fine.  Meaning Zimmerman’s body mass between the time Zimmerman shot Trayvon and the time Zimmerman finally went to trial… shows Zimmerman at his true weight and mass, when the young teenager was shot to death.  But, of course, zimmerman-no-injuries1Zimmerman’s side had good reason to want to dispel the fact that Zimmerman was much heavier in body weight to Trayvon.  Hence, Zimmerman’s miraculous weight lose before turning himself into the police department in Sanford.  Otherwise, that story made up by the Defense Attorneys of a helpless and fearful George Zimmerman at the hands of a Trayvon Martin just would not have played out.  070113_zimmermanwrap1_640Nobody would have believed that.

So, George had to lose that weight.  Which, of course, as you see in his court pictures that he totally gained back.

Then there is the camera footage of Zimmerman that night following the supposed fight that lead to the untimely demise of a young Trayvon Martin.  Zimmerman’s head had no cuts or lacerations.

If the truth be told there were a lot of ‘so-called’ myths that the Zimmerman team wanted to Opening Statements Begin In George Zimmerman Trialdispel… and some they wanted to seriously promote.

Some myths about Zimmerman…

  • 1. He always told the truth
  • 2. His family was full of truth loving people
  • 3. Zimmerman didn’t stalk Trayvon
  • 4. Zimmerman was really in fear of his life
  • 5. Zimmerman feared Trayvon was going to kill him
  • 6. Zimmerman was a good law abiding citizen
  • 7. Zimmerman had great reasons to believe his life was in danger

Some myths the Zimmerman team wanted to promote about Trayvon…trayvon-martin-grad

  • 1. Trayvon was a wayward kid
  • 2. Trayvon was a trouble maker
  • 3. Trayvon was an addict
  • 4. Trayvon was out looking for trouble
  • 5. Trayvon was out to kill Zimmerman
  • 6. Trayvon beat Zimmerman
  • 7. Trayvon had a right to be killed

Let me stop right here.  Who has ever seen anybody who fell to the ground hitting their head?

When did they get up with a cut or cuts?7cad362f-08d5-441e-965b-49279964661a_zps7c726495

I have hit the ground and have seen people bang their heads and they always ended up with a knot in their head.  Big bump.  The harder they fell the bigger the bump on their head.  But never did I see a straight cut appear in anybody’s head, from someone falling to the ground and hitting their head.

PS_0Here again is a big problem that I had with the forensic evidence in this case.  These are the kinds of things that real professions are called into Court to testify about.  But this case had no real forensic people.  No big wig specialist… like in the Ojay Simpson case.

Those cuts on the back of George 22655032_BG1Zimmerman’s head could have clearly been blown up and recognized as having not been done by some type of fall to the ground.  And lugging all the concrete sidewalks in the world into court could not prove otherwise.

3_article_photoThis case had so many missed opportunities on the part of the DA office… you really have to wonder if they ever intended to try this case to win it?

And that answer here again would have to be a resounding ‘NO.’

Clearly, Trayvon Martin’s case biggest opposition or problem were the very people who were supposed to be seeking justice for his murder.U.S. President Obama speaks about the benefits of the Affordable Care Act while in the East Room at the White House in Washington

I really do hope that Mr. President, Barack Obama, sends in the Feds to take on this case.  Because Trayvon Martin truly deserves justice.  He had done nothing for which his young life should have been stolen from him.  And by his cries for help… he dearly did not wish to die… or deserved to.

Bill Cosby, Charles Barkley, Shari… whatever her name on charles-barkley-2the View, President Jimmy Carter… and many others who felt that this case and its verdict was just… definitely missed something.  This was no ‘new thing.’  It is something that we as black folk in America have long had to deal with.  Trials like this one are not new.  And zimmerman-juror-this-case-wasnt-about-racewe have come to recognize them when we see them… and know them when we hear their verdicts.

All of this… the trial and the circumstances which brought about the trial are all historic.  Even to the having of some black folk who want to say ‘Oh, it wasn’t racist.’  When it clearly was nothing but racist.  Race had everything to do with Trayvon Martin being killed… and there is just no getting around it.

I was really hoping… as we always do… that the jury would do the right thing based upon the shear George Zimmermanmerits of this case… and also having full knowledge that Zimmerman was a liar.   Also, being fully aware that it was Zimmerman not Trayvon who had been the provoker.  But in looking back over the court pictures… where Zimmerman does an awful lot of smiling for a man, who should believe he might be found guilty, and have to spend the rest of his life ingeorgezim_notguilty_630x390prison.  Too much smiling in fact…

So, now looking over these pictures and seeing this smiling Zimmerman, it appears to me now that Zimmerman knew how this case was going to go to end up right from the very start.   That is really very unfortunate… 2ab-the-bishop-wifecover money and power play a big factor in the outcome of a lot court outcomes.  But I guess having a father with connections… goes a long way to assuring a favorable outcome.

I just finished watching a video of Geraldo Rivera talking about the Trayvon Martin case.  It is funny how much people change over time.  I thought Geraldo used to be a lot smarter.  Based upon Geraldo’s take on this case, any one of us could have been shot dead and would have been alright.  Based upon Geraldo’s assumption, if we look just like some black guys who were supposedly vandalizing that neighborhood then it is okay to kill you.

Now, how stupid is that… and ignorant?

I don’t know how long the myth that all black folks look alike has been going around in me resized...gty_geraldo_rivera_mi_130201_msAmerica… but it has.  We know we don’t look alike… but to some people we all look like criminals …murders… crack fiends… and welfare fraud people etc…

Shame on Geraldo.  He must be trying to get a new tv show or renew his contract.  Some people will do and say anything… for a little money.  He must need it real bad…  And he sure looks old.

Guilty by looking like a criminal.  Trayvon was dressed just like most teens dress, black or white… Hispanic or Asian etc… You see them all day long with hoodies everywhere… going to school… coming from school… riding richard-i-anson-young-man-with-skateboard-melbourne-australiaskateboards… on bikes.  When did wearing a hoodie mean you were a criminal?

And though I do not like the style… it is a style for the kids… shagging pants.  A hoodie and shagging pants does not make anyone a criminal.  Much less worthy of dying.  And because somebody’s house or neighborhood is having problems does not mean you go out shooting anybody you think looks like the type who did it.

Where is the justice in that?

I pray justice and peace for the Martin family… and America.Boxing champion ... Mike Tyson in New York, 2004.

I have to admit that on this topic Mike Tyson spoke saying something that I very much can agree upon… or with him on.  When asked what he thought about this case… Mike said, “I don’t know any more than what I have seen on television.  But I do know that kid should not have ended up dead.”

In happening to catch a segment of The View, they were discussing the trial and I have to say elizabeth-hasselbeck-hotthat I truly admire Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s stance on this, and her outrage is truly worthy of my mentioning.  As a mother ever woman should be highly upset regarding the circumstances of this case, and the cruel, brutal and cold blooded murder of Trayvon Martin.

Well, God bless… I know you are probably wondering what took me so long to get around to writing this blog?

I did… but I have mostly done so on Facebook.

The other reason is I sprang my right foot.   It has been a few weeks now.  I had pain in it before… but not realizing it after I stepped into a hole and twisted my foot that I had done damage to it.   Which while at a convention in Baltimore I had plenty of time in between limping around, and trying to stay off of it… I spent a lot my down time watching the case on TV.  Because there wasn’t much else I could really as my foot was killing me.

My foot is still bothering me.  I understand it takes about 16 weeks for a sprang foot to heal.  BLD080493So, I am trying to stay off of it as much as possible still.

And the other reason it took me so long to write this blog was, of course, the weather… ALL THIS HEAT.

It has been soooooooo hot and humid here.  The humidity was almost unbearable.  Every time I got up to do the slightest thing… sweat would be pouring down my face… my nose… my brows etc…   I was showering up to 6 times per day.  Because I cannot stand to be sweaty… even with an aching ice-cream-sxcfoot.  Yeah, pain or no pain into the shower I went.  But the weather has broken now.  And I hope it stays this way.

I certainly hope you fared well… better than me in all this heat… and got done all you needed to do.  Have a good rest of this week… and I will catch you again soon.  I’ve got to go put my foot back up.

And again I thank those of you very much  who have ventured out and purchased my book… which can be ordered on-line at any number of websites… just google THE BISHOP’S WIFE by Bernadine Smith… and see for yourself.  And you can also read excerpts from my book on-line as well at Barnes&Nobles Nook, amazon.com etc…

Thank you for reading this blog…and  my others.  Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends“pass it on…”  www.bsmith101.wordpress.com  ©2013
