Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018 … One Day We “Will One Day Live in a Nation Where They Will Not Be Judged by the Color of their Skin but by the Content of their Character”

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY – 2018 … Because in the end, it is all about the content of one’s character.

On this MLK Day 2018, we once again join together as a nation and honor the message of Martin Luther King Jr.  We look back and reflect on “The Dream.”  Don’t let people tell you we have not, because we have come a long way as a people and a nation since the 1960′s. However, that is not to say we don’t still have a ways to go. I personally make it a point every MLK day to listen to the words of the slain Civil Rights leader and his “I Have a Dream” speech and reflect on what it means and where we are today with that dream. Today, we are a much better country and closer to Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. The United States of America has come a long way; however, the mission is not over. Recently we have been presented with the facts that black unemployment is at an all-time low. It can get even lower! “The Dream” is much like being a Christian or life in general. You don’t just all of a sudden say, okay, I have reached my goal and nothing more is needed. People are not perfect, they never will be. We strive to be good and follow Christian values. That does not mean we do not fail or fall short. Have we come a long way, yes. However, does that mean we have much more to do and always will. Don’t let negate noise get in the way of reality. Be a part of the continued Dream!

“I Have A Dream Speech” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have a dream that “The Dream” of Martin Luther King Jr. will be championed by real Civil Rights activists and not high-jacked by those for their own self-serving purposes and agenda and try to divide us as a country. To do so, to race-bait and to divide America whether you be a common American citizen, a pastor, a politician or a president does a disservice to Martin Luther King, Jr. and his “DREAM.” How I wish there was a true Martin Luther King Jr. alive today to champion the cause. We are closer than you think America, don’t let those that would divide us be victorious.

Full text of MLK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech:

I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

[...]

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!

But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Democrat House Minority Leader Says …Wage Increases & Bonuses From Tax Reform are ‘Crumbs’ and ‘So Pathetic’ (VIDEO)

AND YOU WONDER WHY DEMOCRATS LOST THE BLUE COLOR VOTE … NANCY AND DEMOCRATS ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …

As everyday, hard working Americans are receiving bonuses, increases in 401K contributions and increases in pay as a result of the GOP/Trump tax cuts from businesses, Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi showed just how out of touch she and Democrats are with the below response. Pelosi actually called the $1000 bonuses to millions of American workers, “crumbs” and “pathetic.” How elitist could one possibly be? This just shows the disconnect between Democrats and the American people. Crumbs? Actually Nancy, it is you that is pathetic!

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s so pathetic.”

Via Business Insider:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday dismissed as “crumbs” the recent wave of bonuses given to workers by large corporations in the wake of the Republican tax law’s passage.

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s so pathetic.”

Pelosi’s comments came as many large companies have announced one-time bonuses for workers and pay increases as a result of the tax bill. Companies including AT&T, Wells Fargo, and Visa have all announced various pay increases, one-time bonuses, or benefits increases, citing the tax bill as a factor.

The White House particularly highlighted an announcement by Walmart on Wednesday. The retail giant said it would increase its minimum hourly wage to $11 an hour and offer long-time employees a $1,000 bonus.

Neal McCoy’s New Country Music single takes aim at NFL Kneeling during National Anthem … “Take a Knee, My Ass!”

AMEN BROTHER!!!

Via NBC4:

An East Texas country music star has released a new song taking aim at those who take a knee during the National Anthem.

Neal McCoy debuted his new single, “Take a Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take a Knee)” on Facebook Live.

“I’ve been on 15 USO tours,” McCoy says. “I’ve entertained our troops in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and all over the world. So, no, this is not a money grab. This is a guy that believes in our country, that does not like people kneeling, not standing with their hands over their hearts, for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. That’s what I’m about.”

Broadcasting Lengend Vin Scully Says He Will Never Watch Another NFL Game Over Anthem Protests (VIDEO)

BASEBALL AND THE WORLD SERIES GOT IT RIGHT … AS THE NFL AND THEIR OVERPAID, PRIVILEGED MALCONTENT PLAYERS CONTINUE TO DRIVE FANS AWAY.

On Saturday night, former Dodgers announcer, broadcasting legend and Hall of Famer Vin Scully stated what many people have done and continue to do. Scully said, he “will never watch another NFL game” because of the protests. While football continues to shoot itself in the foot with their player protest of the National anthem that is looked upon as disrespect to our flag, our country and our military, Major League Baseball, the World Series, the L.A. Dodgers, the Houston Astros, and its players hit a home run and got it so right.

Saturday night, former Dodgers announcer and Hall of Famer Vin Scully was at the Pasadena Civic Center for an event called “An Evening With Vin Scully.”

At some point during the event, Scully was asked about the NFL’s national anthem protests, in which players have taken a knee during the anthem to protest police brutality and racism. Scully said he “will never watch another NFL game” because of the protests.

50% of U.S. Millennials Say They Would Rather Live in a Socialist or Communist Country than a Capitalist Democracy

DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE ASS ON THE WAY OUT …

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, 50% of US Millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy. Unbelievable. What the hell are the kids today being taught in school? This is what happens when you have a liberal brainwashing agenda in schools to indoctrinate rather than educate. It also goes to show that Millennials are clueless. Really, you would rather live in a country like China, Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea? Maybe you should ask Otto Warmbier how he was treated in North Korea on his visit there? Oh that’s right, you can’t, he is dead as he was basically tortured to death. Does it ever dawn on Millennials that people are willing to risk death escaping Cuba to make it to the United States? Maybe we should ship these uneducated, over privileged your to Venezuela where their economy is in ruins due to socialism. How could a group of American youth be so ignorant? They embrace communism? What? Have these Millennials never seen the joy on Eastern Europeans faces when the Iron Curtain came down?

Hero Poll_110217

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a D.C.-based nonprofit, one in two U.S. millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

What’s more, 22% of them have a favorable view of Karl Marx and a surprising number see Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un as “heroes.”

Really, that’s what the numbers show.

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the organization. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the organization. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

But do they even know what it is?

Maybe Millennials can at Least comprehend the video below to get a clue as to the Berlin Wall (Hint: East Germany was Communist side of wall)

The survey, which was conducted by research and data firm YouGov, found that millennials are the least knowledgable generation on the subject, with 71% failing to identify the proper definition of communism.

Smith explained that this “troubling turn” highlights pervasive historical illiteracy across the country and “the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.”

Some thing needs to be done in this country or it is finished.
