National Guard, Do We Need Them?

I don't think we do. What we need, is for the police. To enforce the laws already on the books. The city of New Orleans, started what has turned into, what amounts to a trend. Everybody with a rising murder rate. Want to attack it, by bringing in the soldiers. The southern city of Jackson Miss., has already brought in the troops. To try and get a handle on crime. One thing we seem to be overlooking here. Is the fact that New Orleans, is no longer a predominately Black city. The National Guard was brought in to prove a point. The city of old will never be again. The first sign of the former atmosphere of crime. Is being stamped out, before it festers. This just further proves my earlier suspicions, regarding the rebuilding of New Orleans. It's definitely going to happen. Just not like everyone thinks.

Here in Memphis we are having a record breaking year. Not in something, that we should be proud of claiming. To date we have eighty-seven murders, in six months. If this doesn't slow down. At this rate, with summer just starting. The city may reach two hundred homicides this year. We have had a rash of innocent victims, many of them children. That's what has the people in a uproar. People still haven't been hardened to that point yet. Where they don't give lipservice to the babies. When something happens to the children, it pulls on Memphians heart strings. Often to the point of going too far. We have a tendency to let things slip under the rope, for the sake of the children. Once it's put into law, the benefits for the children somehow disappear. Hence the lottery and the proposed college scholarships. Now we have to pass legislation, for the children to get them. That's another subject though. Back to the assault on crime.

Some of us, don't want the soldiers to fight in wars. Which is what their duties entail. Why do we want to enact a police state here? I would bet many of these same people, are calling for the troops. If you have never been in a city under siege. You have no idea of what that's like. The closest I can remember was 38 years ago. When Martin Luther King Jr. was killed. When the troops come in, it's a last resort. What do you do after that? All of these shortsighted people, haven't thought about that. I know it can be a bitter pill to swallow, but "the good have to suffer, with the bad".

Crack Cocaine VS. Crystal Meth

The two are very different drugs, with somewhat of the same affects. They are both a strain on the community. One just more-so than the other. For those that have been victimized, by the affects of Crack Cocaine. You probably thought, nothing could possibly be worse than that. Then we were introduced to Crystal Methamphetamine (Crank). I think it gives a whole new face, to drug related crime. It has the same affect on everybody. I think Crack messed up anybody's life, who used the drug. Contrary to some peoples opinion. It wasn't a color specific plague. It just affected the Black community disproportionately. To combat the crack addict, it was mainly just avoiding them. You knew you couldn't lay anything around them. They would steal anything not nailed down. But it's not like we didn't know that. They really hurt themselves more than anyone else. When you look at the families, finances and futures ruined. Who did it really hurt? There's not many old Crackheads around. They're either dead or in jail.

What makes Crystal Meth worse is, they do bother more than themselves. They pose immediate danger to everyone around them. They will do anything when they get high. Unlike the Crack addict, who spends all their time. Trying to get another hit. The person on Crystal Meth, is out of their mind long enough. To do considerable damage, before the next binge. Not to mention that the drug is cheaper. With Meth comes Meth labs. Which adds even another problem. The environmental factor. Your next door neighbor could have a lab in their house. It could blow-up, and get you too. I heard something yesterday that I didn't know. There seems to be a connection to diet pills.That would explain how rapidly it's spreading. The main ingredient in diet pills, is the same major component of Crystal Meth. I was wondering how some of these people ended up using Meth. When I heard this, that filled in the blanks. Surely people aren't using this stuff, trying to lose weight. The problem is, if you try it one time. That might be enough to get you hooked. This drug is crossing all lines. It doesn't matter age, gender or sex. It is an equal opportunity destroyer.

Both of these drugs are equally destructive. If I could I would eliminate them both. Since we don't have that choice. We have to deal with the hand we've been dealt. Now you can't get certain medicines without identification. Somebody said since we limit those drugs. Why don't we limit Baking Powder, since it's needed to make Crack? One key thing they forgot. People aren't buying Baking soda in large amounts. I haven't heard of anyone, finding lots of empty Baking Powder boxes. They both are bad things,without a doubt. I think Crystal Meth, is the worse of the two. What about you?

No Thanks, No Volunteers Needed

I find it interesting that the general population, doesn't want to take these guys serious. I don't see why not. I think they represent the mindset, of people all over this country. You can go to any predominately Black area in any city. And hear the exact if not similar statements. Find your local chapter of the N.O.I., or NAACP. I bet you'll hear more of the same. Maybe not to the point of blowing up buildings. But adding fuel to the fire, just the same. They have what I call a seditious attitude. These seven homegrown terrorist in Liberty City, just happen to have joined forces. They call themselves the "Sons of David" a religious group. They've also been given the title of "home-grown terrorist". If that's what you want to call them. I don't give them that much credit.In my opinion they're nothing more than gangmembers. Lacking the members and organization, to make a serious assault. I believe they would if given the chance. They didn't have the weapons necessary, to carry out any serious threats. All they had to offer Al-Qaida, was a willing mind and a strong back. Which obviously wasn't enough.

Talk about the brush-off, This has to qualify for one of the worst. No one is standing in line, to be a terrorist these days. Especially here in these great United States. Everyone wants to come over here. One of those accused, wasn't even supposed to be here. He was an illegal alien from Haiti. To make matters even worse. Another terrorist snitched. I don't think they heard about, the "stop snitching" campaign. Thank God they didn't. At least they didn't believe the hype. That silliness only resonates, in the Black community. I have noticed a disturbing trend forming lately. Blacks seem to be on a awful lot of bandwagons these days. It started with the Gays then the Hispanics. Please don't misunderstand. I'm not comparing the two, they're totally different issues. They both just happen to be good examples. Now we've sided with the Al-Qaida. What could be next I wonder? How low will we go? Blacks better be careful what they co-sign. Suppose this madness catches on with the masses. Do you think the extremist will stop at Blacks? We only make up twelve percent of the population. You better be careful what you ask for. You just might get a surprise. America is the big dog, in the world today. For all those who wish to see her topple. I have this question. What happens when you get the German Shepard out? And replace him with a Doberman Pinscher? Read the links below. To see what the media said.

HBC / Bailed Out By Who?

I was happy when I heard about someone coming to the rescue, of Lemoyen-Owen college. They had to raise $1 million by June 30th. Had it not been for the anonymous donor. It doesn't appear they were going to reach their goal. Much to my disappointment. They had only raised about half the money. In spite of threats of closing the doors. It didn't mobilize the schools impressive alumni list. Had it not been for the 11th hour offer. Lemoyen-Owen college probably would be closing their doors. Now they won't have to do that. Click on the link below for more details:,2673,MCA_22897_4798406,00.html

A lot of people overlook, who we have as a citizen of Memphis. Fred Smith is like a local Bill Gates. It's not like they don't know who he is, they just don't understand. Fred Smith and his company FedEx, are a big part of the Memphis landscape. The city would suffer a tremendous lost, if they should be headquartered elsewhere. To keep a college open in Memphis, is an investment in their future. It will keep them with a source of part-time workers. Students make excellent employees. If they want to work. Plus it gives them the first shot at graduates. To educate workers, that will best serve you. What better than to have your own school. I listened to Bill Gates, the owner of Microsoft. He has taken a particular interest in education as well. I think CEO's foresee a shortage of qualified workers. Locally I think we are already experiencing that. Too many young people can't even count money. Let alone fill out an application. With FedEx being one of the biggest employers, in the city of Memphis. I'm sure he has made that observation as well. Since the donor of the money is anonymous. We just have to wonder who the generous individual was. That's just a theory of mine. Considering the mindset of some of the citizens. Even though they aren't going to school, and didn't donate a dollar. They would have a problem . If by chance I was right. It might be better , if they don't know. I know it shouldn't matter, but it would. Then again maybe it should. Blacks need to support their own causes. Not saying we shouldn't get any help. But we should lead the cause.

I heard all the people yesterday, on a live radio broadcast. Coming out and making their donations. And issuing their challenges to other fraternities and sororities, and other professionals. Every Black judge running for office. Had a story to tell along with their donation. Considering the total they collected. It was more of a political rally, than it was a fundraiser. With all the testimonies, I heard on the radio. The school shouldn't be in trouble anyway. The anonymous donor wasn't foolish though. He had some stipulations attached. The same people won't handle this money. They have to construct a brand new board of directors. It will be interesting to see who is picked. The school has had a history of financial troubles. Practically from the start. See the history of the school below:

Old Men Need Love Too

County Commissioner Cleo Kirk, was accused of sexual harassment. I don't want to wear it out, but again I'm not surprised.I don't think the county should be sued, and have to pay a huge settlement. Which is how these things, usually end up anyway. It's safe to say that Cleo Kirks political career. Will come to and end in 45 days. I think he might be guilty to a degree. But not totally. Let me explain what I mean by that. If he did this, it didn't just happen last week. The incidents supposedly took place, in April and May. The accuser has been on staff, for twelve years. He just paid attention to her? I think if there was a problem, it started way before then. I think he was an easy target. People are more likely to believe her, as opposed to her blaming one of the other men. I would like to hear, what Marilyn Loeffel says. Year before last we paid a lawsuit, to an officer who was handcuffed as a joke. What kind of relationship did they have? Where someone had the chance to put them in handcuffs. What were they doing? This undermines the cases where the worker has been on the job twenty-five years, and never gets promoted. Because his racist boss has been there twenty-eight. Chances are the supervisor won't get caught, in a compromising position. If the victim doesn't have big breasts, or a pretty face.

What bothers me, is when people that probably shouldn't have the job anyway. I'm not saying that's the case here. They may be highly qualified. Far to often that's not the case. Plaintiffs end up with the spoils, at someone else's expense. I have seen women win harassment cases, for jobs they shouldn't have. If you have had an improper relationship with one of your bosses. It's not the publics problem to straighten it out, after the fact. I don't know all the details yet. But based on what I've heard, I think I'm right. I think this is all about timing. They might be trying to hit, while the iron is hot. They might know something we don't know. Between term limits and the Tennessee Waltz. A Memphis politician isn't worth much these days. If this is true? Old men need love too, at least they think they do.

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

It would seem to me, they wouldn't be very happy. Not to the point of singing anyway. The reason is plain and simple though. To do less time in the cage. You know how you pull a string, and it keeps on going. The FBI is just following a loose thread. Before this is over, the whole thing will unravel. That is the horizon, of local politics. Think about all the loose ends, in Memphis politics. The FBI will probably be auditioning singers for a while. I see groups being formed, and some being broken already. This isn't going to be tough, like infiltrating the Mafia. I think they'll find many of these guys. Willing to tell, on each other. The majority of them have never been to jail. They don't want to start now.

Take a look at some of the cases already settled. Or at least we haven't heard the disposition. You might be seeing them again, in the very near future. Remember Calvin Williams the administrative assistant, making over $100,000 a year. What happened to his book? The supposed tell-all book,about Shelby County politics. Shep Wilbun won his case in court. That doesn't mean he didn't do anything. He just wasn't convicted. Look at the defendants, who are already free. Also look at the questionable verdicts, handed down lately. At least those we know about.That's just not by coincidence. I think we'll see the reasons shortly. Let's see how many, ride or die folks we have? You'll see we don't have many. Not many are willing, to take one for the team. I will be interested to see. What those who were so hard against Tim Willis, have to say about this? Once your friends start falling like dominoes. Will you feel the same? Will the others get a pass, because someone else did it first? I think I know why, the caged bird sings. To stay out of the cage.

Was This One Of The Seven Indictments ?

It was announced earlier today. That seven indictments were handed down, in regards to voter fraud. In the highly controversial District-29 State Senate race. For the seat vacated by John Ford sr., and won by his sister Ophelia Ford. In a special election, held in November. I think a lot of people will be sacrificed, for the sake of the voting process. Voter apathy is at an all time high. As if it wasn't bad enough already. People already didn't think their vote counted. Now to a degree, they might have a point. With people voting where they choose to,no matter where they live. The addresses have ranged from nursing homes to cemeteries. Seems like everyone voted, in this election. Not only did they vote they ran.

Which brings me to my question. The person pictured is guilty on both counts. Not only has he voted out of his district, for the last forty years. He has ran for political office several times. Including the race in question. He was among several candidates in the primary. Though he only got a minimal number of votes. His campaign played a significant role.The race was won by only thirteen votes initially. After he didn't get the Democratic nomination. He gave his support to Prince Mongo. Whose votes could have determined the race either way. Talk about sour grapes. That's what that seems like. Obviously he doesn't think the law applies to him. Being a former law enforcement officer, as well as a pastor. I don't think they can use ignorance of the law, as an excuse. He must not be expecting any repercussions. He is running for a seat right now. Unless he was one of the seven indictments handed down. What do you think?

Like Father, Like Son

Michael Hooks Jr. former (Chairman of the Memphis City School Board), was indicted earlier today on four counts of extortion. His father Michael Hooks Sr. (County Commissioner) was one of the first people indicted, in the Tennessee Waltz. He'll be going to trial soon. Most people think he's guilty. I don't want to throw the towel in, on these people. Without giving them the benefit of the doubt. But they have a history of taking things that don't belong to them. The father is addicted to crack cocaine, at least he was in the past. You know what they say. Once a person has that problem, they'll do anything. Especially to get more of the product. Remember the Rolex scandal? Michael jr. bought several of them. He weasled his way out of that. At least he didn't do any time. He knew they came from somewhere, they weren't supposed to have. He knew somebody stole them. I'm not surprised juniors involved. Like father,like son.

20 Great Jobs That Don't Require a College Degree

20 Great Jobs That Don't Require a College Degree
What do Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and entertainment mogul David Geffen have in common? Besides being exceedingly rich, none of them has a college degree.

Though it was once conventional wisdom that you needed to have a four-year college degree to be successful, many employment experts believe that maxim has become myth. While a college education increases a worker's chances of earning more money, it's certainly not the only reliable path to well-paid and rewarding work.

Even though good jobs increasingly require some post-high school training, many still don't require a four-year degree. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, eight of the top 10 fastest-growing occupations through 2014 do not require a bachelor's degree. And these jobs, which include health technology, plumbing, firefighter and automotive repair, are less vulnerable to outsourcing. After all, if your car breaks down in Indiana, you're not going to fly someone in from another country to help you!

Based on data from the U.S. Department of Labor and the Census Bureau, career planning expert Michael Farr and statistician Laurence Shatkin recently published the second edition of their book 'The 300 Best Jobs That Don't Require a Four-Year Degree.' Among the 25 top-paying occupations are jobs in sales, education, law enforcement, construction, administration and transportation, as well as management and supervisory jobs:

Here are 20 of the top-paying jobs that don't require a degree according to Shatkin's book:

Job: Air Traffic Controller
Annual Income: $102,030

Job: Storage and Distribution Manager
Annual Income: $66,600

Job: Transportation Manager
Annual Income: $66,600

Job: Police and Detectives Supervisor
Annual Income: $64,430

Job: Non-Retail Sales Manager
Annual Income: $59,300

Job: Forest Fire Fighting and Prevention Supervisor
Annual Income: $58,920

Job: Municipal Fire Fighting and Prevention Supervisor
Annual Income: $58,902

Job: Real Estate Broker
Annual Income: $58,720

Job: Elevator Installation and Repair
Annual Income: $58,710

Job: Sales Representative
Annual Income: $58,580

Job: Dental Hygienist
Annual Income: $58,350

Job: Radiation Therapist
Annual Income: $57,700

Job: Nuclear Medicine Technologist
Annual Income: $56,450

Job: Child Support, Missing Persons and Unemployment Insurance Fraud Investigator
Annual Income: $53,900

Job: Criminal Investigators and Special Agent
Annual Income: $53,990

Job: Immigration and Customs Inspector
Annual Income: $53,990

Job: Police Detective
Annual Income: $53,990

Job: Police Identification and Records Officer
Annual Income: $53,990

Job: Commercial Pilot
Annual Income: $53,870

Job: Talent Director
Annual Income: $52,840

Though a college degree is not a requirement for these positions, all require moderate to extensive on-the-job training or apprenticeship. In addition, dental hygienists, radiation therapists, nuclear medicine technologists and commercial pilots require an associate degree at a vocational or technical school.

Highest-Demand, Competitive-Paying Jobs

Competitive-paying jobs for which there is high demand for workers include:

Vocational Education Teachers at the post secondary level, with annual earnings of $40,740 and 216,000 openings each year;

Registered Nurses, with annual earnings of $52,330 and 215,000 openings each year;

Wholesale and Manufacturing Sales Representatives, with annual earnings of $45,400 and 160,000 openings annually; and

Tractor Trailer/Truck Drivers, with annual earnings of $33,520 and 300,000 annual openings.

"The thing to keep in mind is that there are something like 50 million jobs out there that don't require a bachelor's degree and pay upwards of $40,000 a year," says Harlow Unger, author of 'But What If I Don't Want to Go to College? A Guide to Success Through Alternative Education.'

He goes on to say that according to the U.S. Department of Labor, by 2010, almost two-thirds of all projected job openings will require only on-the-job training.

So while a college degree was de rigueur for the baby boom generation, that's not necessarily the case now. In today's highly technical and service-related market, workers are judged more on their skills than their sheepskins.

Incorrect Period

I was involved in a argument with an aspiring politician. I have to call them aspiring. Because they have the right to run. If it were left up to me. I wouldn't allow them in the race at all. In this discussion, I made some predictions that were evidently true. As it turns out, I was right. Now I see why, I was causing so much commotion. I was letting the air out of their balloons. As if it really mattered. It's not like their disclosure causes a dilemma. They won't be a factor in the race anyway. A comment he made about the unsuccessful recall of the Mayor, he organized. Lead to this verbal exchange.

Common said...
Thaddeus,Since nobody is responding to your site. I'm sure you'll moderate this soon. I will do what I want to, I don't have aspirations of being a politician like you. If I did, believe me. I would do a better job than you. I don't agree with everything Mayor Herenton does, but I don't agree with most of your positions. Get it through your thick head, if people like me don't agree with you. You are going to be a loser. Hence the recall. Where is Bill Dundee?
4:03 PM

Bill Dundee is Del Gill, a longtime Democratic activist. He supposedly had a plan to gather 50,000 signatures in one day. Need I say more? The recall didn't gather 50,000 signatures, in the whole three months. Mr. Gill seems to be better at hurting others, than he is helping himself. He sponsored Roderic Ford, who won the Democratic nomination. When Del Gill joined forces with this clown. His credibility fell to an all time low, in my opinion. Instead of a mover and shaker. I had to mention that for future references. Now I see him as a troublemaker. See what the other clown had to say:

Thaddeus Matthews said...
Common, AKA derek embry If you don't agree with my positions why did you come to my site, I know because no one goes to yours, or in fact knows or give a damn about who you are. You have no idea what my aspirations are. you are just a kiss ass crony for weak blacks who believe that its always some one else's fault. you mention that you could do a better job than me, you can/t even get anyone to come to your web site, I banned you once from this site, because you want to login with a link to your site, I don't site promote here unless its something that I want to promote. people Who think like you are the real losers. I don't know why you posted you really had nothing to say. and all future posts will be banned, I know why you're mad. I POSTED YOUR PICTURE ON " WILL ROSCOE AND JOHN BE ABLE TO HANDLE PRISON"
7:11 PM

Notice how he never provides anything, to back up what he says. If no one comes to my blog. Why do they bother banning me from the site? He is welcome here. I eagerly await the chance to pick him apart. I wouldn't follow this guy to the curb, let alone across the street. He has built a platform, on nothing but jealousy and lies. We don't need any known idiots and thugs, in public office. This was my response, that wasn't posted.

Common said....
Thaddeus,You ban my post because you are an idiot, and you can't handle questions. Some of my regular readers used to come here. They don't anymore. I only came to your site this time. Because I caught your lame brained crack on Andrew's show, about the recall. I couldn't vote against Terry Roland, or I wouldn't have lost that one either. As far as you wanting to be a politician, maybe I should say powerbroker. You will never be any more than you are right now. For reasons such as this. A losing loudmouth fake. Just FYI a lot of anonymous posts, don't indicate traffic. Ask some of the people on your blog. I know at least as much about blogging, as you do. I know you probably won't post this. I won't be surprised. All the people you say that don't read my site. They'll get to see it though. You don't have to worry about me posting again. The main one got the message, that's you. As far as how the women look in Prison. I'm not concerned. I prefer women on the street. Let me take that back. I mean free women. I forgot who I was talking too. You have a thing for streetwalkers. John and Roscoe like free women as well I'm sure. They like them enough to stay away from juvenile court, unlike you.

Here is an announcement Thaddeus Matthews recently made:

OPERATION FEDUP Will Fire Up Again Real Soon And I Will Be A Candidate For City Council

This guy can't even tell the truth on a blog. I sure wouldn't trust him, behind closed doors. He underestimates the intelligence of the average Memphian. He thinks everyone's memory, is as short as his. Is this someone we want to put in public office? I've been correct about him so far. I still think I'm right. I predict they can't be trusted. What about you?

The World In 1989

Where were you in 1989? This was the year that the writer was born and personally I wish I could remember. Many events happened in 1989 like The Montreal Massacre and the execution of Ted Bundy. Around the world many massacres occured such as the one in Tiananmen Square. 1989 was a year that brought much depression but also had events that brought America to what it is today. The cost of simple items such as bread and gas were a lot cheaper then they are today. Tragedies that occurred across the sea's also was a big part, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall. The writer had the time to research these events that happened in 1989 and put them together in a website.


In 1989, a gallon of gas cost $1.06.
Life expectancy was 73.7-75.3 for both genders in 1989.

The cost of a loaf of bread in 1989 was $.67.
In 1989 minimum wage was $3.35.

The President in 1989 was George Bush Sr.
Favorite song in 1989 was "We Didn't Start the Fire".

A gallon of milk cost $2.14 in 1989.
Cars in 1989 cost a total of $14,645.

Best actress in 1989 was Jessica Tandy.
Average income in 1989 was 41,506.

Where Is My $1.4 Billion ?

I didn't actually lose that much money myself. If it was mine, it definitely wouldn't have been squandered away. I understand some of it went to "Hooters", a topless restaurant. To which I've never been, or even seen a menu. It paid for cosmetic surgery, for tummy tucks and boob jobs. Which me and my family haven't got. Not that I would spend good money, on things like that. That's a personal luxury. If you think you need it, that's your business. You should have to pay for the priviledge, not me. It even paid for a sex-change. For which I wouldn't have gave a thin dime.If you were an ugly transvestite before the storm. You should still be one now. It bought "Girls Gone Wild" videos. The commercials have flooded my late night television uninvited. These are videos I never have, or even want too see. Don't get me wrong. I like beautiful women, just like the next man. I just like to unwrap my own myself. It bought designer label clothes that haven't been on me or mines back. Had it been left up to me, most of it wouldn't have been purchased. Unless I caught it in a really good sale. Payments went to people in Jail, and to graveyard addresses. Where did FEMA cross the line of not doing enough, and doing too much? I'm all for helping those in need. When they really need help. It's not my intent for anyone, to spend my money. In ways and on things. I wouldn't even buy myself.

Just like the freaks come out at night. The frauds come out in the daytime. Many of these crimes were committed in the daytime. It all originated in the FEMA offices, across the country. Except in certain cases, government offices are closed by five. Is this the reason the telephone lines were so clogged? The reason legitimate callers couldn't get through. Are these the same people we saw on the rooftops? Or those that were dying of starvation, at the New Orleans Superdome? I know people are going to bring up all the ways they feel money is being wasted. That has nothing to do with this though. When we as citizens take responsibility for our actions. Then we can be more influential to our representatives. Crooked people will follow crooked leaders. What's at the top, drops to the bottom. If the bottom is dirty, what do you expect at the top? Where Is My $1.4 Billion ?

Crotch Rockets

Me and a friend were talking about these Sportbikes just the other day. Motorcyles give you a sense of freedom that's indescribable. I know the feeling. I once had that same fever myself. It gave my parents the blues. Especially my dear doting mother. Now I know what it was like for them back then. My son is going through the same phase now. Maybe he'll grow out of it, like I did. I got over it, when I started to drive. I understand the need for speed, but it's really scary. These new machines are just like the name says, "Crotch Rockets".

I can't help but think of the neighborhood youngster, who we'll call Tony. Who died on one of these Superbikes. He was flying down the street at a ridiculous speed. When a car pulled out, and he couldn't stop. His head swole up so big, the helmet burst. The paramedics had to cut it off. It's not like he wasn't warned before hand. Even the neighborhood addict told him on a regular basis. "Boy you better slow down. You drive that thing too fast". It was a regular occurrence, to see and hear him zipping about. You know that familiar sound. HHMMMMM!!! He was a good young man, all except for that. He went to school and didn't get in any other trouble. Not that I am aware of, anyway. If he did anything and someone saw him. He was easy to find because everyone knew him. Thank God, his wild side didn't hurt anyone else. He didn't represent all motorcycle riders, just a percentage. In my opinion too many though. I was talking to a preacher the other day who is a weekend Harley Davidson rider. He doesn't speed, in and out of traffic outrunning the police, and going in between cars. He doesn't ride by himself, he's in a motorcycle club. Riders like him, they make up another group. They're generally older riders. That know better from age and experience. This past week Ben Roethlisberger Steeler's quarterback, the youngest superbowl winner in NFL history had an accident, and he wasn't even wearing a helmet. He's already vowed to never do that again. He was blessed to survive with surgery. He represents those that could have anything they want. This just goes to show this thing crosses all lines. The age, race, status and even gender doesn't matter. Even the ladies like to ride.

I said all that to say this. Riding these bikes, is like having sex to a degree. If not controlled, it can be dangerous. Thus the name Crotch Rockets. What would happen, if we didn't regulate that? Sex that is. Having your own Superbike. It's virtually like having your own Jet. The problem here is, the streets are the runway. Calmer heads must prevail. The industry can't go unchecked. Catering to the whims of riders. Some bikers will try anything once. Sometimes that's one time too many. Don't let me leave them out, by all means. Have you seen some of the passengers lately? Can you say "Sex in the Streets"?

The Funny Thing Is, This Isn't A Joke

This has been made into a joke, by some political satirist. Like anything else that happens, we can make it out of a joke. But is it really funny? I have been saying this all the time. There is a large segment of this community, that just don't have a clue. When is the last time you went to a public office, and tried to get some help? Unfortunately many of these people hold positions of responsibility. They are in charge of others. In my opinion certain sectors of employers, are already doing this in great numbers. This is a spoof, but I think it's true. Of course there are some exaggerations. But the premise itself is true.


WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - Congress is considering sweeping legislation, which provides new benefits for many Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act (AWNAA) is being hailed as a major legislation by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition.

"Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they do a better job, or have some idea of what they are doing."

The President pointed to the success of the US Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance. Approximately 74 percent of postal employees lack job skills, making this agency the single largest US employer of Persons of Inability.

Private sector industries with good records of nondiscrimination against the Inept include retail sales (72%), the airline industry (68%),and home improvement "warehouse" stores (65%) The DMV also has a great record of hiring Persons of Inability. (63%)

Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million "middle man" positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.

Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given, to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations which maintain a significant level of Persons of Inability in middle positions, and gives a tax credit to small and medium businesses that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires

Finally, the AWNA ACT contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the Non-abled, banning discriminatory interview questions such as "Do you have any goals for the future?" or "Do you have any skills or experience which relate to this job?"

"As a Non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, MI due to her lack of notable job skills. "This new law should really help people like me." With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Said Senator Ted Kennedy, "It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her adequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation and also find a place for all illegal aliens no matter how useless they may be."

It's The Other Forty-Seven Percent

According to statistics, the homosexual population only make up one percent of the population. Evidently forty-seven percent of the voters, didn't have a problem with same-sex marriage either. At least not to the point, of voting for legislation. In the 2004 presidential election. These were the certified numbers. BUSH 59,459,765 - KERRY 55,949,407 NADER 400,706. For that election, that was the hotbed issue. I think that was pretty close. I'm not saying a vote for Kerry, was a vote for same-sex marriage. What can I say though. Considering that Bush reintroduced the measure. The Senate voted it down. What else can the President do to settle this?

Just like the policemen in this picture. Many people take it for a joke. I don't think the vast majority of people are homosexual. I think for the most part they just don't care. Those who speak out against them, they consider them zealots. When I see the effect of such a small number. I can't help but think. If you don't stand for something. You'll fall for anything.

What Do You Think ?

Evangelist Pat Robertson has made the headlines again. This time his comment isn't just unpopular, he is accused of outright lying. He said "in 2003 he leg pressed 2000 lbs.", in front of witnesses. This was prior to his surgery. I think what he is doing is embellishing a bit. Like the fellows do, when they get together. They caught a big crappie, but it didn't weigh as much as they said. They had sex twice, but they claim to have lasted all night. After watching this tape. Based on what I see. I'm not ready to say it didn't happen. Maybe just not like he said it did exactly. When you see the tape, you'll get my meaning. Tell me what you think.

True To Color

No one has ever went to hell, and lived to tell about the trip. So the color red, may or may not be synonymous with eternal fire. Here on earth, we do associate the color Red with fire though. If that is the case, and we are right. This is the perfect picture. Since he was so willing to create Hell here on earth. Let's help the Devil out, and bury him face down. Make his journey to Hell a shorter one. Point him where he needs to be going.

The question has come up, whether or not Zarqawi's death is significant. I would say it is without a doubt. He is directly responsible for training terrorists from 300 different countries. He is said to be responsible for beheading at least two American hostages. If nothing else it shows that if you live by the sword. You'll die by the sword. In other words, in the end you'll die true to color.

Cookie Jar Complex

When you look at all the corruption, and lying our Black politicians are doing lately. It makes you wonder. Is there something in the water? These people actually expect the Black community, to come to their defense. Much to my dismay, many times they get their wishes. I find it strange that the community, only takes a stand depending on the guilty party. All of the people pictured above, have one thing in Common. They were caught on tape, with the exception of Bill Campbell. They didn't have the ex-mayor on tape, but they have the next best thing. They had an eyewitness, to the crime. They had the bagman. William Jefferson hasn't been to trial yet, but they alledgedly have him on tape as well. What exactly must Black leaders do, to be considered guilty. This doesn't just apply to politics. It applies to crimes of non-restitution too. I mean those crimes, that can't be corrected. Like when someone is raped or murdered. Below are some of the stories on my blog.

I have only been writing this blog about six months. One of my earliest blogs, was about corruption in politics. I don't pick and choose. I'm an equal opportunity basher. I talk about whatever I think is wrong. Regardless of the race of the perpetuator. Many people weren't concerned with the charges against Bill Campbell. They wanted to use his indiscretion, against somebody else. Once they discovered it didn't implicate Memphis Mayor Herenton. Suddenly the infractions didn't matter so much. I know he wasn't convicted. But when everybody around you goes to jail, except you. It's safe to say you worked out a deal. That's not the same as being innocent. Talk about selective morals. This is a prime example. Read the link below:

Then we have the fiasco with Rep. Cynthia Mckinney D-Ga., with the Congressional police. She ended up apologizing, and never offered proof of her accusations. She was later caught on tape. Making some off-color comments, about one of her aides. If you want an example of time and energy wasted. Take a look at this. We have much more important things, the spotlight could be used for. I wrote this about her.

Then we have Roscoe Dixon. Honestly I didn't know who he really was, before he got in trouble. I mean, I knew he was a Democratic insider. These days that's not saying very much. Thanks to the Tennessee waltz, and other investigations. But I wasn't aware of his supposed constituent service. That we're hearing about all of a sudden. After twenty-two years, he should've done something. I'm not surprised at some of the voters though. They would, and have elected a crackhead before. There is just to much empathy in the community. To get a objective and informed opinion. Other than those people who have an agenda. Hoping it will create an opening for them. Not that that's a bad thing. Unless they just offer more of the same. The same game, just different players. Does anyone else have a problem with this? Read what I said about Roscoe's plight:

Now we have Rep. William Jefferson D-LA., caught up in a bribery scandal. The lawyers aren't relying on a preponderance of evidence anymore. As the law requires. Obviously for some jurors, that isn't enough. I think we're reaching a point in time . Where jurors need to be tested. I know that opens a whole new can of worms. They're going to court with videotapes. To get around this attitude and lack of understanding. Sometimes even that doesn't work. The interesting thing about this case. Unlike with Ms. Mckinney, they're speaking out. They've brought out the When I say they, I mean the CBC. These people are supposed to be the elite. When they champion causes like this. No wonder the general population, act the way they do. I haven't written about Rep. Jefferson yet, but here's an update:

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm sure there will be more to come. Aside from that we already know about. You can't be caught, if you aren't doing anything.

Sam, Samantha And Steven

At best I would consider this an experiment gone bad. This story is about two men and a woman. That now includes two innocent children. I know there are those that would say. "With the number of Orphans we have, as long as they're decent people. Let them raise children". That's just the thing. The lifestyle they lead isn't decent. Like it or not, it's a sexual deviation. The issue they tried to circumvent is proof. Homosexual unions can't procreate. There is no such thing as little gay produced children. Without the help of the heterosexual population, the homosexuals would disappear. This story is about a controversial union between three people. Just the thought of three people sharing a bed, wouldn't set well with most people. I know I wouldn't approve. Most people consider it kinky behavior. Some people say this was just an excuse for a threesome.

It's only fair that we first acknowledge this union is over. After two children and ten years later. The arrangement has reached it's end. It is obvious that the two men are homosexual. They were originally a couple. The female was added later. I don't know what you would call the woman. I know in the beginning, I would've called her gullible. She was only twenty-one yrs. old at the start. What initially sounded like a good idea. Has turned out not to work. Steven has left, for another partner. Sam and Samantha now have a platonic relationship. They maintain a relationship, for the sake of the children. Obviously he hasn't abandoned his sexual preference. He still wants to be with men. Most people living this way, are unstable themselves. They change partners like they change clothes. That is up to the individual, we have freewill. I don't look in your bedroom window, to see who you're having sex with. I don't want to foot the bill for it either. We shouldn't give them special priviledges, because of their sexuality. When you look at the bigger picture. This whole thing is in regards, to homosexual adoption. In order for the homosexual population to survive. Someone has to do it naturally, at least once.

Am I Missing Something ?

I am worried about the people of Memphis. Many of the citizens have completely abandoned logical thinking. I always say there are grown people, that have the mind of children. They need someone to think for them. The problem is they are over twenty-one. Legally they are full grown. Society allows them certain inalienable rights. Several things have happened lately, that highlight this mentality. I won't talk about everything that has happened recently, it would take all day long. It seems to be contagious and widespread though. It's happening all over the country. Not just here in Memphis. I expect some of the children, to do some of the things they're doing. I'm not surprised at their behavior. They don't have any examples to follow. Foolishness abounds in the heart of a child. Adults are supposed to correct them. I'm going to talk about some local hot issues, notice what they have in common. I think people are often victims, of their own freedoms.They just don't know it yet.

I heard someone say Roscoe Dixon's latest legal troubles were initiated by God. It is true that God allowed it to happen. But taking bribes under the table, are not represenative of God. I don't see how this could be construed as being racist either. The city is mostly Black. Two of the people convicted also happened to be white. It only stands to reason, that the majority of politicians in the Memphis area are Black also. They weren't singled out, because of their color. They were just easy targets. They were on the take. Nobody forced them to take the money. I don't think they should do jail time though, that would only cost the taxpayer. I think they should be fined, and banned from public service. They shouldn't be allowed to profit off the people. Not in the capacity of an elected official. When you hear people calling this a message from God, or racial discrimination. You know we can't trust many of the adults, to make a good decision. Depending on the make-up of the jury, he might get off.

Two young girls were fondled and raped, earlier this week. One of them was sixteen, the other one was thirteen. The man guilty of the crime was twenty-four. This is a simple case, right. He is guilty of statutory rape. Not so fast though, there's more. The girls waited until 12 midnight, then they opened the window and let him in the house. They watched a movie together, then he raped them. I have a question. Where was one girl, while he raped the other? They didn't tell anyone until the next day, what had happened. One more thing, I think is very important. The thirteen year old had been talking to the man, over a year via computer. I know men shouldn't be sleeping with young girls, under any circumstance. But let's be realistic here. If it wasn't for the law. Age would only be a number. Is this really rape though? Or is it "Young Girls Gone Wild"? We give the girls a scolding if that, and label the man a pedophile for life. Everybody wants to hang him for his actions. Where is the accountability for being a young lady? Society needs to put them in check. There are too many older people, not willing to deal with that. They want the law to do their job.

What is the common thread in these two stories? When I was growing up, and I did something and got caught. If I brought up what someone else had done, as a defense. My mother would always ask "If someone else jumped off the side of a building. Would you do that too"? In situations like this. I always remember that question. These people weren't victims. They put themselves in the line of fire. Why is it when someone gets caught, we want to make them a victim? In my opinion an ounce of prevention. Is worth a pound of cure. If we didn't do certain things to begin with, there wouldn't be a need to straighten it out. We always want to blame somebody else. That's what I see. Am I missing something?

For Those Seeking Employment

I have been blessed to have some people around me, that truly want to make a difference. You never know what you're going to hear. It has allowed me to have a network of sorts. One of my regular posters has started a blog that is full of useful information. I myself have used it as a resource already. I have come to realize, often people haven't tried anything new. For whatever reason they lack the motivation to make an attempt. I was moved when I read this. I hope maybe it will help someone here. Like it helped this person.


Six Hundred (6) Threescore (6) And Six (6)

I wrote this article several months ago, and posted it on my Touchy blog. It was March 16 2006,to be exact. This is the only time in my life. This will be the date, 6/6/6. I know I'm not the first to discover this, though no one has discussed it around me. There has been plenty of opportunities, and today is one. I once had a auto license plate, that had those numbers. It created a whole lot of discussion. First of all, it was a very eyecatching car. It was really sharp. In those days sharp cars, weren't so commonplace. Now that I look back, it never got a positive response though. Whether it was for lack of understanding, or sinister reasons. It never rendered a positive response. It never evoked the proper interpretation. This is a prime opportunity to expound on how the powerful word of God, can be manipulated and twisted. The three sixes are totally taken out of context, by the average individual. Since the Three 6 Mafia won the Oscar, the symbol has gained an added notoriety. Once again I think we're missing a valuable opportunity here.

In every rumor there is at least a grain of truth. Since we cannot call this scripture, it must be a rumor. I can see where the grain came from. People base these assumptions, on revelations given by the bible. This particular revelation is one of John, while on the island of Patmos. It doesn't say anything about it being the mark of the beast. As many proclaim vehemently. The number six itself, is the symbol of man. The verse in question, for one to understand. You must have an overall knowledge of the word of God. Some things are revealed to us in the beginning. Some things in the middle, some in the end. I think the three sixes are significant to illustrate the intercession of God, on man's behalf. This is the scripture the fable came from:

Revelation 13:18
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

On the sixth day man was created, to have dominion over the earth. In the midst of paradise, and even after a total flood. Man still wouldn't do right. We had to have a man come among men, in the form of Jesus Christ. To save us from our sins. In other words ourselves. When you look around at today's society. We're quickly approaching the point of intercession again. As man replaces the wisdom of God with his own. The creator of all has to intervene. The group "Three Six Mafia", is no more satanic than the "Blackeyed Peas". They both promote something contrary to what is good. What is devilish is that we accept one, and speak out against the other. They both represent the same thing, in different ways. What we should do is put on the whole armour of God, to protect us from the enemy. Which will be needed in the end of times.

What Is Cord Blood?

Considering the possible effects of this new technology, I'm surprised there isn't more public awareness. The senate majority leader Senator Bill Frist R-Tenn.,has given his opinion. He Conducted one of the few interviews I've heard,about this medical breakthrough. He gave credit to President Bush in the Commercial Appeal, for signing a Bill into law. That would in essence, establish a new national registry for cord blood cells. I know this won't get much attention in the Black community, due to it's overwhelming bipartisan support. In spite of the fact that they may initially be, one of the biggest benefactors.Cord blood technology is the extracting of cells from the umbilical cord and placenta after a woman gives birth. These cells have the potential of taking on the characteristics of other cells. This is sort of a compromise, for the stem cell controversy. It provides something for both sides, without abandoning the wishes of either. It aids in the discovery and use, of certain treatments and cures.For those that are pro-life it appeases them as well. It doesn't require the taking of life. It's a win, win situation for all involved. To people who suffer from sickle cell anemia. A disease that overwhelmingly affects the Black community. Sickle Cell causes the red blood cells to form irregularly. Making it difficult for the blood to pass through the body's vessels. This amounts to a life line of sorts, to those who suffer from this blood disorder. One in every 400 Black newborns is affected. Even with the advancements made in the past several decades.Only about half of them will see their 50th birthday. This new technoloy offers effective treatments and possibly cures.People in Memphis should be particularly happy. This city has one of the highest concentrations, of sickle cell in the country. I personally know a couple of people that suffer from the disease. I once encountered a lady that had been affected by this treatment. She didn't know how to effectively communicate, exactly what had happened. The majority of the listeners assumed she was lying. I could see the doubtful looks, on the faces in the audience. I researched it farther, and was pleasantly surprised. Much to my contentment, she was telling the truth. Check out link below :

Sheriff Joe Arpaio For Incarceration Czar

Please excuse me, but I think I just made this position up. I don't think, I've heard it before. If by chance I did, no one has followed through. Sheriff Joe Arpaio should be the model. I totally agree with his approach to dealing with prisoners. Read the story below, and get more details.

The sheriff who issues pink underwear

Author: Julia Lutsky

People's Weekly World Newspaper, 02/12/04 13:25
Opinion Meet Joe Arpaio, husband, father, grandfather and the toughest sheriff in America, as he calls himself. Elected in 1992 to run the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) in Phoenix, Ariz., the fourth largest sheriff’s office in the nation, he runs a jail system which houses approximately 8,000 individuals. Many of them are there awaiting trial because they could not afford bail; those convicted are serving sentences of less than a year. A sterling example of the prevalent “get-tough-on-crime” policies, Arpaio requires chain gang prisoners to provide thousands of dollars of free community services such as cleaning streets, painting over graffiti and burying the deceased indigent in the county’s potters’ field. He boasts that one of the gangs is the nation’s only women’s chain gang. The women often choose to serve there because it is preferable to the alternative: lockdown, where they are confined, four women to an 8- by 12-foot cell, for 23 hours a day. All prisoners on chain gangs wear black-and-white striped uniforms. Arpaio introduced this measure in 1997, as he says, to make examples of the prisoners. Last month Sheriff Arpaio ordered the approximately 500 undocumented immigrants in his jails to register for the draft. No coddling of criminals in Maricopa. After all, he says, jails are not country clubs. Smoking is forbidden as are coffee, salt, pepper and ketchup; reading material is monitored; there are no movies nor is any recreation provided; unrestricted television is banned. Should a prisoner need to see a nurse he or she must pay $10 for the privilege. Apparently because, by his own testimony, he is slightly overweight and on a restricted diet, Arpaio does his prisoners the service of restricting theirs as well: he recently cut the daily caloric intake from 3,000 to 2,500. He boasts the average prisoner meal costs the state but 20 cents; prisoners get only two of them a day. The food is often reported to be old and rotten. Small wonder: it is often surplus food. By contrast, food for the department’s dogs costs $1.15 a day per dog. Shortly after Arpaio took office in 1993 he expanded the state’s policy of housing prisoners in tents. According to former department employees, he emptied an entire floor of one jail to accomplish this. He is thus able to say, and does say, that he will always be able to house anyone picked up or condemned to his jail system. The tent cities, as they are called, oblige their over 2,000 inhabitants to live under the broiling Arizona sun year round. In the summer the temperature can reach 120 degrees. Even in the fall and winter it is close to 100 degrees during the day. At night it can become very cold. The Maricopa County posse program has been in existence since the ’30s. It is a volunteer system that provides community services such as search and rescue operations and enforcement support. Or that is what it did prior to the arrival of Arpaio, who expanded the posse to 3,200 individuals. Their duties now include rounding up “deadbeat” parents, patrolling malls during holiday season and, in the county’s “red light” districts, fighting prostitution. Just how these are accomplished Sheriff Arpaio does not specify. He justifies the expanded duties saying they are essentially free services to the community. The MCSO web site ( enables one to see mug shots (in full color!) and details about the arrest of anyone held in the jail system. There is a “Crime of the Week,” which displays all those arrested for a particular offense. When this writer last accessed the site that offense was DUI – Driving Under the Influence (of alcohol). The viewer can pick and choose offenses and see mug shots and details on any prisoner held for that particular infringement of the law. Some of the more questionable offenses listed are “family offenses,” “insurance violations,” “interfere with judicial processing,” “profession and occupation violations,” “transportation violations,” and “watercraft violations.” Mug shots and details can also be obtained for particular prisoners by supplying a prisoner’s booking number or name. And one final humiliation: the sheriff requires all prisoners to wear pink underwear. What this regime of torture accomplishes is to make this kind of treatment an acceptable part of the national get-tough-on-crime policy. Arpaio explains it in detail on the MCSO web site, bragging that it teaches wrongdoers the evil of their ways. To the prisoner who expresses dissatisfaction he says simply, “Well, don’t come back.” Is it any wonder that human rights groups regard his jail system as the harshest in the country? Sheriff Arpaio is running for re-election this year with his policies as his platform. He says he welcomes suggestions from the public.

Open And And Shut

I don't blame Roscoe Dixon, and his attorney Coleman Garrett. They are just doing what anyone facing jail time would. That would be anything in their power, to stay out of jail. They are using every trick in the book. Trying to play this thing out. This is just a prelude of things to come. There are five other defendants, in the same predicament. They have tapes and serial numbers of marked bills, to prove the cases against everyone that has been charged. It's all just a matter of going through the motions, at this point. When they didn't plead guilty, like the other politicians involved. I knew we were in for a long and wild ride.

I guess we are just supposed to overlook what our eyes have seen. They have a lot of these people, on tape taking money. To divert our attention from the real issue. The fact that they took money for us to see. Somehow this has turned into a race issue. I don't see where being Black has anything to do with taking bribes. Even though all the defendants are Black and were implicated by Blacks. They tried to get this kicked out based on selective prosecution. The implication was they were singling out Black politicians. Even though two of the people charged were white. How does that translate to discrimination? Whatever happens to Roscoe Dixon, will be a look into the future. Whatever happens to him is just the beginning. Those who follow him will get more of the same. Being the first one to go to trial, he is at a disadvantage himself. The others can use his trial as an example to follow, in their own trials. Considering the fact we are even having this discussion is alarming. There are those who attempt to defend this behavior. This should be open and shut, but I don't know.

Today someone accused me of being a Step-N-Fetchit Negro. At first it bothered me, I must admit. That was before I took the time to read up on this individual. All I have heard about him has been negative so far.Then I considered the source. The same people that led to his downfall. They usually get things backwards anyway. Which led me to do some farther investigation. I must admit, I didn't know much about the character. After hearing the story below. I know a little more now than I did at first. Read and listen to the link below. To get a somewhat more historical account, of this actors life.

Below we are given a biography of Lincoln Perry. Of course 'Step-N-Fetchit', was not his given name. It was just a character he created in his comedy writings. "The world's laziest man". Mr. Perry was an accomplished writer as well. He was a writer in the "Chicago Defender". His given name was, "Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry" (May 30, 1902–November 19, 1985). I think the readers will find some things about him very interesting. Not to mention surprising, I know I did. It's ironic that the very things he was excluded from. Are ultimately the things that lead to his destruction. Read the link below:


In 1910 Blacks owned 15 million acres of land in America. As of 2002 that number had been reduced to 2.5 million acres. Real estate has proven to be the most solid investment over time. He who has the land will rule. Something is definitely wrong with this.

Amber Alert Absent

I was hesitant to state my opinion on this matter. I didn't want to rush to judgement, without hearing the whole story. Good thing I didn't, now the baby has been found. I don't let my emotions lead me to assumptions. To make this a racial issue, is unoriginal at best. This case didn't meet the basic qualifications, for the Amber Alert. This child wasn't abducted, the mother gave the child away.

Below is the father's account of what happened. I guess it would be safe to say, the stories are contradicting at best. The mother's and father's that is, they don't agree. The father isn't totally innocent, in this ordeal either. If the mother hadn't called and told him, the child was missing. He probably wouldn't have known little 6-month Kimmarta Lawrence was gone. He should have been with his family anyway. Tago Holliman, the father of missing child, was passing out fliers in hopes of finding his son. The mother in question is four months pregnant now. Her and Mr. Holliman have a 17-month, in addition to the child they're expecting now. If Ms. Lawrence is so mentally unstable as he claims. Why does he continue to have children with her? Read his story below:,2845,MCA_25340_4741162,00.html
