the problem is that the people in this country will not move forward, we should never forget ourRead Morepas t, because that is who we are. We should now come together as Americans for the betterment of ourselves, but that will never happen unless some dialog will bring us to the future without blaming each other for past sins. I try to make things better every day, but I am only one and I can't do it alone......

That is the mentality that we foster with the knowledge of our history, Bob: THAT WE SURVIVED ANDRead MoreTH E EXPERIENCE CLOCKED INTO OUR GENETIC MAKEUP IS THAT OF A SURVIVOR. I am sure there are many who wish we were victims. But we are not. And those who wish us to be victims are the only ones "whining"....

maybe someday all we have now is hope. have a good day I'm done.....

jimbob are you one of those who still hate Muhammad 'Ali? You Also tell me something. of the lastRead More1 0 people of that you know who have been killed, how many of them were killed by Muslims?

Amin, of the last 10 worldwide terrorist attacks how many have been Catholic, Methodist, Lutheran,Read MoreP rotestant, Buddist, Baptist? Answer zero. How many have been Muslim? Answer all of them. Enough said.

Jjmbo, you should check the news: The last fort hood attack, the last school shooting, the schoolRead Mores tabbing, the synagogue attack, the attack on the police station in New Jersey, and of course the events, going on in the Ukraine and the murderous rampage going on in the Central Africa Republic. So I ask again, of the last ten people you know of that have been killed HOW MANY OF THEM WERE KILLED BY MUSLIMS?

He means some blacks, that is true for some but not all. We must be careful with how we word andRead Moreper ceive things. If everything you speak about talks about dividing among races then the agenda is racism. We were not made different colors to dominate over one another but to celebrate and bring uniqueness to the table. Every awareness isn't beneficial awareness some can cause strife with each other.

Of course there are no absolutes in creation. But black people have an annual income of more thanRead Morea trillion dollars. And since the evolution of integration black people have failed to spend in their own community to build communities like Rosewood and Black Wall Street were. I grew up on the tail end of segregation and I can remember when South Chicago street was lined with black businesses. Right now black people spend over 6 billion dollars a year on beauty products (most of it to less black looking) outside of their own community. Many of them will spend 2, 3 hundred dollars or a pair of shoes, but won't even have 20 or 30 dollars worth of book in their homes. To tell black people what their problem is, is not about dividing the races, it is about identifying our weaknesses. The same with my son. If he is falling short of his potential in taking advantage of opportunity--I will bring it to his attention. Don't you think that is the right thing to do?

LOL Bob, you're right!

Amin Falaq April 14, 2014 at 10:03 AM
That is true Bob. I put the questing forth to make people think. History reveal a lot of actionsRead Morere sulting in death but to the benefit of certain Americans while the government lied to us about the real facts--for instance 55,000 killed in the Viet Nam War (plush the hundreds of thousands of American families destroyed) while the government lied to the American people about having been attacked.....

You're very welcome! I'm not trying to be unkind, just honest. We all have room for improvement.
Amin Falaq April 15, 2014 at 08:32 AM
That is the objective of human existence: Improvement. Honest criticism is an asset forRead Moreimprovemen t--one who gives it enriches the life of he, or she, who receives and accepts it.

Thanks, Amin!

That is intelligent paris.

So, now you've learned something new. Pass it on...
Amin Falaq April 14, 2014 at 10:08 AM
That is what I do, paris. Like the African proverb says: EACH ONE TEACH ONE. I teach as many as I Read Morecan and do not worry about those who do no like the lesson or even those who have reactions to it. Information is like medicine. The medicine that will cure one person may well cause a reaction in another person.

Along with the other reasons already posted there are problems with the way the law was formed;Read Morebehi nd closed doors. We still don't really know the full extent of the damage the health care law will do to the economy. implementation of the law has already been delayed because of the effects it will have on the current economic recovery. Those likely to be hurt the worst are the working poor because the increased cost of on the employer will make it unprofitable to keep some low skilled jobs in the US, they will move elsewhere. For the near future the health care bill will have little effect on the middle and upper class, in the long term, without serious reforms, health care in the US will become a single payor system like most of Europe and Canada, then we will all suffer.
Bob April 14, 2014 at 07:54 AM
we have become a society that does not trust the government that has a programs that boasts that it Read Morewill be good for us. If this is such a good program then why don't congress drop their coverage and jump on board??

Well Steve, if you study the full history you will find that there is nothing that you can sayRead Moreabout a pedophile that was not said about homosexuals as recent as 30, 20 years go. And Steve, if you spent less time trying to demean me for providing information, you will also find that the same argument homosexuals started off to justify homosexuality and homosexual political activism: PEDOPHILES ARE ALREADY starting to use.
Amin Falaq April 09, 2014 at 06:30 AM
As for my being a bigot and a racist for anti-homosexual views? One there are black homosexualsRead Moretoo- -but more important is, I guess you think G'd is also a bigot and a racist. Do you know that the word" sodomy" comes from "Sodom" (and Gomorrah) that the bible says G'd destroyed a whole people for homosexuality? And just in case you do not know, and want say that is just some Islamic propaganda, that comes from the Christians bible, and is also contained in the Jewish Torah
