1 John 1:7b
…and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Well, I saw this photo on Facebook yesterday.
First Lady Michelle Obama was the commencement speaker at my undergraduate alma mater, Bowie State University last week. I guess if you dislike anything Obama, you are probably saying, “so what!” I don’t have to tell you I am not a supporter of Pres. Obama. But, regardless of the politics, having his wife, the First Lady speak at a college graduation is a big deal. If this had been my graduation, my late father, late maternal grandmother and some of my other late relatives would be so excited to hear First Lady, Michelle Obama speak. Remember these are folks who never saw and thought there would ever be a black president and black First Lady.
In late April, I saw that Angela Davis spoke at Bowie. I admit over the top excitement as a student back then over the idea of hearing her speak. I even desired that Angela Davis bush hairstyle Not now! If I was as right thinking as I am now, instead of going to hear Ms. Davis, I would be studying for finals and/or take extra prep time for a final course project presentations. The more I grow on the right, the less I can tolerate listening to a far leftist person and in her case, with criminality.
Seeing pictures of Bowie’s campus, makes me feel my age. I do not recognize any of the buildings from online images. The campus is far more attractive than when I was a student. I wonder if any of the buildings that were there when I attended Bowie are still around! I have not been back to the campus since I graduated in 1973. I have only passed by it on the Amtrak Philly to Washington D. C. trains. Below is a picture of me in line beside a graduating male student wearing glasses in procession to the graduation ceremonies. The building in the background with several windows was my dormitory, Tubman Hall. I see Bowie now has student apartments. And by the way, the commencement speaker at my graduation was the late Daddy King, Martin Luther Sr.. My parents and my maternal grandmother were pretty excited about hearing him.
It is Armed Forces Day! I thank these patriots who served and are serving. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, that the good Lord continues to keep you strong, heals and restore the body and minds of those who suffered all kinds of injuries while protecting this country.
We are well into May and we have not heard from Zo since early April. Enjoy his rapid fire rant on the IRS, taxation, right wingers, Republicans, conservatives Democrats, liberals, slavery, taking our country back, Pro Israel, the TEA Party and more.
A jury found Kermit Gosnell guilty of first degree murder of 3 babies who survived being aborted, and is serving 3 life sentences without the possibility of parole. I did not hear any attempts to even justify Gosnell. Those who are pro late-term abortions kept quiet. Other than Fox News reporting, the Gosnell trial did not get much national media attention. Well, despite the lack of media attentions, what happened with Gosnell really hit a nerve and there will be more investigations of late-term abortion clinics.
One very disturbing aspect is that former Republican pro-choice PA Governor, Tom Ridge (also first head of Homeland Security) enabled the activities in Gosnell’s house of horrors. When Tom Ridge was PA’s Governor, he stopped state inspections of abortion clinics. He is in hiding. Efforts by such folks as Bill O’Reilly and local radio talker, Dominic Giordano to get him to respond to the guilty verdict are futile so far. Go here to read a Red State post calling Tom Ridge an unindicted co-conspirator.
Pres. Obama kept mum on Kermit Gosnell, even though he voted as a state senator in Illinois against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in Illinois that would protect the life of baby who survived a late-term abortion. Really, Gosnell, Tom Ridge and the Pres. appear to be on the same level when it comes to late-term abortions.
