A Black??? Please explain.
HIS SUPPORTERS TREATED HIM LIKE HE WAS GOD. He thought he was GOD until today when ABC, CBS, NBC and even FOX said you lost. TRUMP committed many crimes and after January 20th, 2021, he will be arrested, tried, and put in prison. He will have time to catch on his reading. As a teacher, I will give him a passage from the bible, but not who said it. “And whoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled, and whoever shall humble himself will be exalted”. TRUMP will have to open his “never used” concordance to find the writer. We stayed in that line and voted. Bless you all who voted and all power to the people. Enjoy your next 4 years!!!
LORD, I HOPE ONE DAY Lord, I hope one day Black people like me will be free. By being able to walk down the street without the fear of the police harassing me. Without being chased like a dog or beaten and killed with no mercy. Lord, I hope one day Black people like me will be free. Years after Martin Luther King marching, we are still protesting for equality. Some say America is great, but it has never been great to me. Sometimes, I feel like there is no sense in trying, and I want to give up because I have been done so wrong. Yet, when I think of those before me, some who died fighting, that what give me the strength to carry on. Yes, I wonder what it is like to be totally and truly free. So, I continue to struggle, hoping that one day before I die, I will be. Hoping one day I will be seen as equal by those who don’t look like me. Lord, I hope one day Black people like me will be free. Gregory St. James Mundy- (author of I LOVE GOD)
too too much, and too too good!!!
My Condolences goes Out to Bishop Allen Rance Family my heart is Broken 💔right now Words can't express in How we will miss My Favorite Gospel Singer that's I listen to every Night when I go to Sleep..R.i.p. Bishop get your Rest
WHICH ONE OF THESE TWO SHOULD BE ARRESTED? One is an innocent open mined student and the other a know -it all career criminal. An 18-year-old girl, Susan, finished high school and was preparing to enter college in a few weeks. Her father took Susan to a well-known bank and had her open a checking account. She started writing checks and all was well until she received a letter from the bank. She opened the letter and saw a $50.00 return check from Sears stamped in big black letters ISF. She showed the letter to her father and asked, “what does ISF stand for’? Her father said insufficient funds. Susan said daddy that big bank is five stories tall, luxurious decorated and a large parking lot. How could they be broke? (smile) He said the bank is not broke it has over a billion dollars. What they are saying is you do not have enough money in your bank account to cash that $50.00 check. The next day Susan received a letter for Sears demanding she pay the $50.00 and $35.00 bad check fee. The big bank also charges Susan $35.00. This simple mistake costed Susan $70.00. The bad check was reported to the credit bureau and will be on her report for at about seven years. In some states writing a bad check is a misdemeanor that some would use on certain people to hinder their progress for as long as they could. TRUMP is insufficient in the following: basic GED knowledge of the U.S. Constitution; negotiations( Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un played him like a drum; patriotism (he had five draft deferments); handling money(bankrupt five times); respect for ladies (19 or more reports of sexual harassment); paying bills on time( hundreds of contractors have claims against him for failure to pay); Fraud (forced to pay$25 million dollars to settle his Trump University lawsuit); compassion(took babies from their parents and put them in dog cages; nepotism (hired his unqualified daughter, son-in-law and family members of his friends, including appointing Senator Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Lan Chao to Secretary of Transportation. Mrs. McConnell just granted 16 million dollars to the State Port in Wilmington, N.C. a State TRUMP is having trouble winning; his new Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy , did not know the cost of a post card. TRUMP was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives but set free by his (ring kissing) GOP Senators. Susan made a simple mistake of not balancing her check book. She was not out to con or hurt anyone. TRUMP on the other hand is a 74-year-old career criminal. Who would you handcuff and say” You have the right to remain silent…”? Election day in the U.S. is the only day the poorest person is equal to the richest because we each have one vote. I used my one vote to vote all BLUE, Will you? JAMES J.HANKINS
THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN. When you know that your time in the spotlight is slowly coming to an end, you finally start listening to your high paid advisors. Trump advisors pleaded with him to be calm in debate and give Joe Biden more time to talk praying for Biden to misspeak, because Biden has a stuttering problem. It could have worked except Biden is highly intelligent, experienced, compassionate, empathetic, and full of LOVE. TRUMP on the other hand is the lonely man in the world like Ebenezer Scrooge. Remember he begged the highly educated ladies who live in the suburbs to love him. Like the lazy student he wants attention, but he only gets it when he turns the class out. James Brown called it “talking loud and saying nothing”. The only job for TRUMP now, who knows more about religion than GOD, would be a greeter at a mega church. Please do not let him serve on the committee that counts the money after the 1st, 2nd and love offering (smile). Please vote TRUMP, the least racist man in the world, and his GOP brothers and sisters out on or before November 3rd. James J. Hankins
