Three Years and Counting

It has been three years since Bill O’Reilly gave this Talking Points Memo and neither President Obama, or Jackson or Sharpton, to my knowledge, have made one attempt to speak to these issues as addressed herein. 

Three years and escalating because ‘leadership’ refuses to address the root of these problems. Why is that? 
Earlier this week someone I love’s house was broken into. The door was rammed open and property was stolen. You know why? Because two entitlement-minded, rebellious, void of self-respect, corrupted souls decided they would rather steal than earn themselves a television. There is NO excuse for stealing, looting, burning businesses, none of this godless devastation that we see happening in this Country! Color is not the issue. CHARACTER is the issue! Self respecting, honest before GOD people of whatever shade do NOT steal, period! Neither do self-respecting, honest before GOD people make excuses for such behaviors, they find honest, lawful ways to deal with the wrongs in this world!  
Are there people out there black and white who are willing to speak the truth and STOP throwing gasoline (inflammatory words and actions) on this politically birthed and fueled race fire? 
We can start by leaving off the Facebook and Twitter postings of the Never Forget nature. It’s time to forgive and grow out of this hot mess. 
And for crying out loud stop this I don’t see color baloney! Of course I see color. I’m not blind! GOD sees color! He created colors and He did not mess up when He did it! And He thinks ALL skin color is beautiful and each one in that very skin is valued and loved by Him! 
Let us move beyond color to character! Is the character such that you can trust them to do what is right? Yes? Then what more do you need? If they can’t be trusted; if they are dishonest, live like hell, talk like hell, refuse to work, make excuses for their sin or worse yet even deny they are sinners, demand hand-outs rather than position themselves for a hand up – then part company! Move on to someone you can help. 
This will not solve all the problems, but it’s a start!  

Benghazi and Hillary – Too Soon to be Old News

I will give you a link to read the post at CT if you like (however, be prepared ads are unsightly! I sure wish I did not have to look at them!)

BREAKING: Smoking Gun Email Found… PROVES Hillary Left Benghazi Victims to Die

The latest in the email scandal plaguing the campaign of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has provided proof of what many on the right have known all along — that then-Secretary of State Clinton left Americans to die in Benghazi.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave testimony in 2013 stating that there was no time to get help to Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, where four Americans died. An email obtained by Judicial Watch and recently released appears to be in direct contradiction of this claim.
Fox News reported that an urgent email from Panetta’s Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to top Clinton deputies asked for help as the attack unfolded in Benghazi and stated that forces were ready to move to assist them:
“I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton]. After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”

The email was sent during the early stages of the eight-hour attack at 7:19 p.m. Washington time on Sept. 11, 2012, after the first wave of the attack on the diplomatic outpost but before the mortar strike that killed former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, who were working as private CIA security contractors.

The non-profit watchdog group Judicial Watch said this in a statement about the information revealed in the email:
“This leaves no doubt military assets were offered and ready to go, and awaiting State Department signoff, which did not come.”
This email proves that there was time and that there were forces available to assist in the Benghazi attack that resulted in the death of four Americans: Ty Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens.
While the information is new to the public, lawmakers investigating the case already had access to the email, according to Matt Wolking, spokesman for the House Select Committee on Benghazi.  [source]

Never Forget?

May I ask a question?
I saw a social media post today, in a couple venues, and I am sad and alarmed about it. 
I don’t follow the Olympics and I suppose right there is reason for some to write me off and if so, so be it. As I said I don’t follow the Olympics and so I was not familiar with Simone Manuel. Now that I have read a little about her, she has my applause and congratulations! What a huge accomplishment; accompanied by years of work and dedication. I am delighted for her!  Read more HERE
Also, until today I was unaware of Dorothy Dandridge either. Beautiful woman!
[source] Dorothy Jean Dandridge (November 9, 1922 – September 8, 1965) was an American film and theatre actresssinger and dancer. She is perhaps best known for being the first African-American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the 1954 film Carmen Jones.[3] Dandridge performed as a vocalist in venues such as the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theater. During her early career, she performed as a part of The Wonder Children, later The Dandridge Sisters and appeared in a succession of films, usually in uncredited roles. In 1959, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Porgy and Bess. She is the subject of the 1999 HBO biographical film, Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. She has been recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

What’s the correlation after more than 50 years? 
These are the words I read: 

Never forget.

They drained an entire swimming pool because Dorothy Dandridge stuck her toe in it. 

That is why Simone Manuel is important. 

I dare say Simone Manuel is of much more importance than just swimming in the Olympics. But that avenue deserves a post of its own.

So what’s motivating the posting of  the ‘never forget’? Is the ‘never forget’ offered to bring unity or division? 

We have two choices here: 
1. forgive the past, stop holding this generation accountable for the conduct of previous generations or 
2. keep rehashing these ‘never forgets’ until we implode.
What happens in a marriage if one spouse continues day after day to rehearse to the other spouse his or her sins of yesterday?
It works no better in society! 
There is a solution to racial bigotry and it’s not let us never forget what was done to me and mine but rather it is what can I (each and all of us) do to make the future better for you and yours. This takes forgiveness, humility and courage and lots of it, in lots of people.  Are you in or out?  What we post on social media matters — it helps or it hurts whichever cause we have adopted. Let us choose  our causes wisely.  All our lives depend on it.
