GIVE HIM HIS DIME BACK! In the future a man who was as evil as Hi**er, Kim Jong-Un, Bull Conner, Georgia Wallace, and Mitch McConnell will appear at the holy gate and ask St. Peter where will he spend eternity. St. Peter will look at his record then ask GOD where to tell him to go. God asks St. Peter has he ever helped the poor? Did he treat all people equally? Did he ever give money to a charity? Did he respect women? Does he tell the truth? Does he pay his debts on time? St. Peter said no to all six questions. St. Peter said he was once asked to put some money in the kettle for the Salvation Army. He took out a $100 bill and a ten-cent coin. When the bell-ringer bowed his head to say thank you TRUMP kept the $100 bill in his hand and dropped the dime in the red pot. GOD told St. Peter to give TRUMP his dime back and tell him to “go to hell” (smile)
I was going to write a post after finishing the book but my friend Onalea put it perfectly. This is a must read for anyone who grew up in SoCal. Thank you to Mishka Migacz for your heartfelt openness. You told me you wrote this book in hopes of helping even one person. You have already and you are a shingling light for many more to come. ❤️🙏🏽❤️ —- This beautiful woman is my friend. We were classmates since 1980. This book is so riveting. If you love memoirs you need to buy this book from Amazon. Mishka shares all about her childhood in and out of foster care. Being abused, hungry, the pain she goes through during her childhood in poverty, dealing with racism and bullies in our hometown of Carlsbad, Ca and much more. Mishka’s true life story is both terribly heartbreaking and triumphant! Great read! If you are from southern Ca. you will love recognizing all of the places she describes. Great book oh my gosh I can’t say that enough. Buy yourself Mishka’s book “Childhood Canceled”. On Amazon. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #blackhistorymonth2021
What's the point of allowing comments if all you really want is an echo chamber? You aren't about free speech you just want to see other black people repeating your biased racist opinions - but the moment one calls you out for your hypocrisy they get censored. As a black man - my ideas my opinions aren't important to you - because closet racists like you don't want to hear them. You are what is wrong with this country because you try to isolate blacks and treat them as victims.
he's so beautiful amazing 'first lady'
so long as people use condescending remarks we will continue to struggle to come together. I just heard a speaker on your channel calling "Greeks" ignorant" Shame on you for spreading negativity!!
Hi Grios I just found you all & your new channel on antenna TV. I watch it almost all day now that I am retired. I love the side bits with notable people and stars & greatly enjoy most of the commentaries too. But I must ask you to ask "Gangster Rap" Guy to lighten up. I do not know if I am supposed to know who he is but, I unfortunately, I do not and so had to resort to calling him by the name on his t-shirt. His negative commentary on different segments of society that he feels are against modern day hip hop is like a damper on a good day. I am middle aged and he calls everyone over 35 "old." That's not cool. And I am not sure if you all know but the majority of individuals that have and watch antenna tv are retirees & seniors and we do not like being called the old people. He sounds sadly very immature with that. I have never spoken negatively against modern day hip hop as I do not listen to it. It's simply not my style music. Thus, I really do not get the point of his diatribe as most people my age do not listen either. Basically in life, you cannot control people's likes nor dislikes. So it's best to focus on what your audience likes. With all the positive motivational moments and throw back 70s shows & vintage black genre of movies, I have found on your channel, I have found a lot I really do like with your channel. But when this young man comes in with his negativity and profanity, I don't see how he fits your vision and theme of desiring the upliftment of black people. Thus, I turn the channel when his bit comes on. But I always turn back when I think it is over because I really enjoy all else I view. So otherwise, keep up the good work!
Oops! Very surprised that the digital schedule for this channel said the the 6pm movie would be "Home of the Brave", a 1986 concert film by Laurie Anderson timed in Union City, NJ. Then, much to my disappointment (but not surprise), they had listed the wrong year & description for this title- actually a Sam Jackson pic. At least the fixed the out of sync soundtracks. Good luck.
