Reply To MLK Holiday Anonymous Response

I have not posted lately due to prior comitmits but I could not let this person slide by without responding. I Am Not for The MLK Holiday blog post I recieved the following comments:

if you were conserderd your feeling for the MLK Holiday, theyre wouldnt be any holidays you fool! maybe you should take an American Lit class and learn a few things b4 you try and comment on facts and issues you do not know...the holiday is a step to cast light upon the struggle of blacks not to undermine! if there was no holiday then that would undermine even more!----with your opinion "Good luck with life" my advice to you is to think more an a broad level! see several points of view then examine them all chose one and also compare b4 you go writing blogs and sites =)

This what I have to say to Annonymous:
First I am not the one needing "American Lit" and I am not sure what sort of knowledge I would get from a class about authors of North America (Canada excluded) Second, I spend most of my time with kids that compose there sentences in the same manner as you. I admit that that my grammar skills are not the greatest but I can formulate a good sentence which I believe an American lit class could help. I am not for the holiday because it becomes an excuse or a hollow statement for something much powerful. School is out and for what??? Blacks are coming up short in every category which I have posted in that particular post. Time and time again kids that I have ran across are lost and the holiday is not helping, matter of fact I hear more kids blaming whites for their problems when they should look in the mirror. Yes racism and other discriminatory factors are in place BUT there are ways around this. Instead of shutting down the schools hold a black study vigil in his honor. Lets not march, instead lets bum rush the school board show up in numbers. Lets do a hostile take over in our community shut down the crabs that keep pulling us down. I am a fool??? No, I beg to differ for it is you that remains the blind sheep being lead to the slaughter. The struggle of blacks you say well visit a resource class or some other form of higher special education and you will find black youths falsely imprison a statistic training facility. You will find young kids of Kemet being pumped full of kiddie cocaine and pedagogical poison. I am God incarnate as is everyone that chooses intellectual light is. I have read your post and the actual truth you prove me right in the fact that MLK day is in vain by responding in some cryptic unintelligible language. What sort of education did you have? If we want to honor MLK or any other individual that gave their life's blood to the enrichment of my people then it should be done through education which if you gander at the statistics our kids are not.
In closing Anonymous I hope you seek Knowledge to Cipher because you are in a pit of snakes and do not realize it...

Cult of Personality

Since the SNAFU with the polygamist group the word cult has been used to freely.

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary lists five different definitions of the word "cult."[11]

1. Formal religious veneration
2. A system of religious beliefs and ritual; also: its body of adherents;
3. A religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also: its body of adherents;
4. A system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator;
5. Great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book).

The Random House Unabridged Dictionary's eight definitions of "cult" are:

1. A particular system of religious worship, esp. with reference to its rites and ceremonies;
2. An instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, esp. as manifested by a body of admirers;
3. The object of such devotion;
4. A group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc;
5. Group having a sacred ideology and a set of rites centering around their sacred symbols;
6. A religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader;
7. The members of such a religion or sect;
8. Any system for treating human sickness that originated by a person usually claiming to have sole insight into the nature of disease, and that employs methods regarded as unorthodox or unscientific.
Webster's New World College Dictionary defines "cult" as:

1a. a system of religious worship or ritual
1b. a quasi-religious group, often living in a colony, with a charismatic leader who indoctrinates members with unorthodox or extremist views, practices or beliefs
2a. devoted attachment to, or extravagant admiration for, a person, principle or lifestyle, especially when regarded as a fad [the cult of nudism]
2b. the object of such attachment
3. a group of followers, sect

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary lists four different definitions of the word religion:
1 a: the state of a religious b (1): the service and worship of God or the supernatural (2): commitment or devotion to religious faith or observance
2: a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices
3archaic : scrupulous conformity : conscientiousness
4: a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

Better yet lets talk about a religion that mentions giants that are biproducts of a sexual interlude between beings from the celestial beyound and humans.:Genesis 6:4 claims: "There were giants in the earth in those days;" or better yet there were people of enormous size that roam the earth that could have been from another form of existence that was not earthly: Deuteronomy 3:11 states that the bed of Og, king of Bashan, was 9 cubits by 4 cubits (approximately 14 ft long by 6 ft wide).
How about a crazed apocolyptic hermit that ate locust and honey. A talking snake that tricks a lady into eating some fruit which damns her and any other females to the pain of childbirth. Talking snake....
I am not trying to justify what that group of individuals did because I do not know of their practices first hand. When a person calls for help that is a red flag. When certain supporters try to make the connection with marrying practice of the past were 13 was not uncommon to get married is.... Nuts!!! Apples and oranges.... 400 kids again 400 children, were was social service.
Cults come in different shades Christianity, Islam and Juadism were at one time considered cults along with many mainstream religions some are welcomed while others are demonized such as Scientology. I do not condemn either of the ones mention because what works for one may not work for another.

Spelling Gone Awry

Spelling Bee were a kid had to spell negus. According to Webster the word is a title in Ge'ez, Tigrinya, Tigre and Amharic, used for a King and at times also a vassal ruler in pre-1974 Ethiopia and pre-1890 Eritrea. Grant it the word has a cool meaning but when you say it aloud well it just comes off wrong. I just want to know who was the one stuck on stupid that decided this word should be in the competition. Watch and enjoy....

Lost For Words

You can be the judge for yourself. I ran across this video that claims Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of Abraham (the Father of Nations). That there are parallels between Britain and Egyptian culture...

As I said earlier you can decide which side of the fence you stand on. I will go with someone doctored some paper work to hide the fact that certain people stole from Asar, Aser, Ausar, Ausir, Wesir, or Ausare aka Osiris.

Marion Jones' Teammates Lose Medals

We all know about Ms. Jones and oddly I cannot get that song out of my head. Seriously thanks to her juicing her relay team from 2000 Sydney Games have to relinquish their medals as well. WOW!!! Is all I can say, it amazes me how people become blind to the repercussion that their actions may cause. Jones' teammates were Jearl-Miles Clark, Monique Hennagan, LaTasha Colander-Richardson and Andrea Anderson on the 1,600-meter team. Chryste Gaines, Torri Edwards, Nanceen Perry and Passion Richardson were on the 400-meter squad.
If one of her teammates pull a Luco Brazi I will not be surprise. With that in mind Marion get your passport...

real-life superhero

I have been made sick with all the craziness in the media. While browsing for some sanity I ran across what is term "real-life superhero". They are real people playing super hero while wearing some sort of costume that relates to their hero persona.... NO LIE!!!!! At first I was laughing hysterically and then it hit me after I read Super Hero Manifesto ( I was feeling better after reading about Capital City Super Hero Squad.

Oddly enough I agree with Captain Prospect when he said "Of course it was a harsh reality to grow up to discover there are no real superheroes or superteams. Perhaps it’s ridiculous that I held on to these childhood dreams of superheroes that were so obviously fantastic characters of fiction." Quite possibly in some Freudian manner my drive for becoming an educator stems from my child obsession with super heroes. Regardless of my own self absorbed psychoanalysis these guys made me feel good that there are some people out there doing some good.
* Captain Prospect
* DC Guardian
* Justice
* Nice Ninja
* Puzzler
* Silverstreak
* Siren
* Spark
* Zoria
Thank You......
