Who’s better off than four years ago?

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s videotaped remark to wealthy supporters that 47 percent of Americans “believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name it” and that “my job is not to worry about” people who won’t “take personal responsibility” literally went over like a lead balloon. But because of a reservoir of hatred against the entire Black family occupying the White House Gov. Romney still has a puncher’s chance to knock out the incumbent Pres. Barack Obama, win the presidency and lead the country back to the brink of its destruction. Continue reading

Romney’s Black ‘Leadership Council’

I once had a job supervisor who liked to share stories about his past exploits. His first summer job was while he was still in high school. He worked at what was called a “5 & 10 cent store”–they were then like Wal-Mart is today.

The Late Great Congressional Black Caucus

Very soon the nation’s capital will witness discussions and debates about the major issues of our day, along with wall-to-wall parties. It will be the 42nd Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus–the “conscience of the Congress.” It may be the last time the CBC can wear that title in truth. What?
That’s right, the CBC is on the cusp of its largest membership ever and for the first time there may be three–count them–three Black Republican members of Congress serving with 44 or more Black Democrats, and one of the Republicans is already planning its destruction. Continue reading
