OPEN BIRTHDAY PRAYER 2021

Dear Heavenly Father I give you thanks for allowing me another year. On this day 27 April 1959 I was born into this world and for the last 62 years you have watched over me gave strength when I was weak, healed me when I was sick. When I turned away from you, you stuck with me, no matter how bad I was you never left me. I have been though a lot this past few years the deaths oh so many, but you have been with me giving me strength to push on.

Dear Lord, I give thanks to you for my parents and all my siblings, I give thanks for the teachers that you have put in my life and for the friendships I have made on this journey. Lord I can’t give you enough praise and thanks for all that you have done and will do. But know that I will love you all the days of my life. I give you my all.

Dear Lord, I give thanks to you and ask that you continue to send your blessings, I thank you for that special gift sent to Jay Schwartz on this day, HAPPY BIRTHDAY   Larry Schwartz, and ask that you bless him and his parents with health and wisdom in his growing years.

Dear Lord, I ask this special prayer for Gov. Dewine who has remined truthful as this virus has grown, while others have choose to deceive, He has remined true to his oath to protect the people of Ohio. I ask that you give him the strength and faith to fight on.

Dear Lord. I give thanks, for your present, and that you continue to walk with me and guide me.

Dear Lord, I give thanks to you for my wife for she has been a blessing in my life and ask that you continue to walk with us and guide us. I give thanks to you for the East Cleveland Theater for we will need your blessing as we try to reopen in these trying years for our needs is even greater now.

May God Bless us all the days of our lives.

Lord I pray for all, that you will continue to watch over us protect us. All these things I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

part two

In one word everything. The problem is not within the party its outside. It is the Republican Party that is their problem. They just do not see a shared vision.  Both parties have failed the people.

Lets look at a few topics like education, transportation, and the environment. I will not talk about health care, but you will see where I’m going. Before I start you will try and put a label on me like federalist or socialist, but I am neither I am a realist.  For it is a reality that the least educated populations of the world suffer greatly because of it.  So, if a country is to remain strong than it would be wise to educate its citizens right.

Now for the most part we do educate our citizens but there are gaps that have almost stopped our growth. Mostly due to policies that are just bad. Education is not just a right, but it is a responsibility of every citizen to be productive to the society as a whole and the government to make sure they have the tools needed to succeed. So, I would like to see a change in our view not k-12 but PreK- 14, yes, I said 14.

REASON:

We should have free(required) education up to the first two years of college. Which should be paid for by federal and state funds; with Vocational courses starting in the 7th grade and formal job training programs starting in the 11th grade into jr. college. Now the end of high school will see some students going on to four years some will finish their two years of jr college, and some will go to the military and some will go straight to the work force.  My point is a more educated work force that gives us fluidities. Which is what we need, to stay ahead in a changing world. We should spend money in the early years on reading, math, music and science, 7th through 9th should be loaded with vocational classes, sports, arts, and social building clubs (debate, 4h, jr achievement, scouts) as well history and math.

What I am proposing is not new at one time this was done in some parts of the country in the past ,but since the eighties there has been a slow war against educating the masses, school programs, and afterschool programs are defunded, I have seen first hand how a program that is successful be defunded, forced to find funding that is just not there. With no good reason for defunding.

I must say this that my view is narrow in this regards, When I hear someone that is against an education bill that offers to advance free education I think they think like a Dictator because they do not want to educate they want to control.

And I guess this is my point over all WHAT IS WRONG WITH BOTH PARTIES IS THEY THINK LIKE Dictators.

They want to control us not govern us.

Truth is there needs to be and is long past due a change in both Parties Leadership.

 On to the topic of Transportation which is also connected to infrastructures. I just want to say the country is old some of the sewers date back to late 1800s. How many jobs would be created if we rebuild/modernize the country’s infrastructure, this could also help the environment, how many Mayors wish they had the funds that could not just fix their sewer problem but help his farmers as well.

I said I was a realist I know these things are not Possible today, and not in the future for the simple fact. for these things to happen you need an educated work force we have a shortage of teachers in all fields, so training in skilled trades and advance tech not possible. What is sad is that Countries like China send there students here to get an education and pay good money, but they do not care why because they are building their brain trust.  Oh, what fools they must think we are.

To finish this rant, I must repeat.

THEY THINK LIKE DICTATORS WHILE IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE DICATORS ARE JUST SMARTER.

Part 2

I started this rant awhile back and a lot has happened. After reading what I wrote I am writing this part to continue the rant

Texas will play an important part if the governor and the president can sit down and map out the rebuilding of its old gas infrastructure. Oh, that will cost money, and do we even have the brain trust to do it?

A study that removed equality barriers found that our out put would increase and living standards would improve, WOW Mary Daly you could have gave me that study money I could  have told you that, and there is also the point of who’s listening, well I  do if nobody else does?

Impeachment.

GOP will confirm with their votes that Civil War for the second time in our short history is in the air.

Who will lead it if Trump does not Ted Cruz is betting on himself Say hello to Marcos jr.?

And it has begone how will this play out when the dust end who will be the Dictator of the new country that was the United States?

To be continue. Maybe?

Coronavirus? what to believe?

Is what has happened in the year 2020 is it the start of the slow death of the world class system?

 Note this Pandemic virus 19 has spread around the world no country has been spared. While the WHO has put out information, and yet still people are dying in masses. I see two profound effects that will begin to play out. First no matter what you believe people are still dying. The number of people dying is and will reduce the world population, the numbers of older generations the brain trust and the younger generations the labor trust numbers regarding total deaths worldwide will determine   where we go from here.  How will each country deal with so many of its citizens dead? What will be the toll on food production will there be enough food being produced or will there be people to even do farming, and you must ask this for every single industry in the world. This will open the door to widespread slavery, which leads me to the second problem.

Race riots that have been spreading across the world is not so much about race as it is about brutally and the use of it to control, the match has been lit now we are seeing the fire spread. The use of violent to keep people down, the use of laws that make people less than human is running its course, even the suppression of knowledge may soon begin to backfire. Worldwide this is playing out in several ways each country it will be different yet the same. The total rejection of the class system in almost every form. In the end the countries that Educate their people as a priority, that looks at its people as assets to the sustainability of their culture and growth, will come out on top.

This is something that will not happen in the US since we have for generations have lowed our educational standards to control the populations. Before you  say I am wrong I ask you first Look at all the programs not just in your community but those that surround you that helped young teens, seniors, just look at the job programs, advance education  that have had success but was just discontinued or defunded.  And you tell me what you see.  I say this because I have seen it firsthand, over a period of thirty plus years working with Nonprofits that had such programs. Look at what you had when you went to school and what your Children have now. Not the things you did not have like computers, but clubs, sports, music and arts the things that build character, social skills and teamwork.  

So, the Pandemic of 2020 and how long it will last will it carry into 2021 and what will be the final death toll be our questions that come to mine. And the protest what changes will they bring, and how fast or will those changes come?  

Why I served

As a young black man, I took a lot flack for joining back in 1978, But I was ok with it. For me it was my destiny my desire, since I was five years old to wear the Uniform of the United States Army, just like my Uncle George and my Brother John and my cousin Melvin. I was proud of them and looked up to them. When I in the fourth grade I met a white man named Marvin he owned Dean’s Cleaners, he gave me my first job. Marvin had served in the Navy during World War Two his ship had been sunk in battle and him and two shipmates left out at sea in a raft for several day before being picked up. Me and Marvin talked a lot about what was going on in the world and he was like a second father to me.  So, I will say that he changed my destiny for now I wanted to go not into the Army but the Navy. So that is why I choose to serve in the Navy.

My Uncle George watched me grad from Boot camp seeing how proud of me he was seeing me in my uniform still bring tears to my eyes. I am proud of my Family whom have served this country well. In many different Jobs. While my Father did not serve his brothers did, my mother worked in the bomber plant during WW2 and her brothers served, and I am not the only one to go to the navy as cousin on my mother side also was Navy. But what I am most proud of is the three sisters whom served as Blue Star Mothers. My mom and her two sisters worked hard serving vets in the hospital returning from Vietnam. As a kid talking to these men helping them in a sense pushed me closer to my future.

Now I must say this I do not think everyone should go to the service, but I do think that everyone is responsible to protect those who serve. From being missed used. We are here because we believe strongly about our freedom and are willing to put our life on the line to protect that freedom for freedom is not free.  You that stay home your job is to make sure that Congress and the President are doing what is best for all the people and not repeat the wrongs of before i.e. (Vietnam, McCathyism). These two events separate but the same in that they will forever be dark periods in our history when the people closed their eyes and ears to what was going on choosing to walk in silence will their family and friends’ lives are devalued.  For every vote not taken, is the life of a soldier or sailor dying, our vote counts not voting costs lives.

I am no different from any other man I served for GOD and my Country and have no regrets. I ask you whom have not, can you say the same or did you choose to be silent?

Grace

Grace[i]

The grace given to us by our Lord is power. A power that washes away all pain and sorrow.

All you need is to except it, believe and have faith, bath yourself in his love

Rejoice in his grace.

How to hear the Lord.

His touch is soft

His voice is quiet

But he is always there waiting for you.

Stop quiet your mind, open your heart and your soul will hear him

Loud as the trumpet flare.

WHO AM I?

  (Tell of the Lone Rider)

I am a molded figure made from the dirt of this planet given life though the breath of my creator, I am man.

This is just a form a shell that house the real me. The real me you can not see but you can feel if you open your heart.

I am a believer of our Savior Jesus Christ, and I walk his path daily so many times I have turned from the path only to have him carry me back.

For he is my Protector and Savior I am blessed with his love.

I am me blessed to walk in the light of the Lord all the days of my life.

Who am I?

I am a warrior, born from my mother’s worm fighting for life.  A son carrying the burden of his fathers before him.

I am strong and proud yet meek and full of love I am my Mother’s son.

I am what my father wanted me to be. For he is gone now, and I am alone.

Alone to carry on, to carry the torch of our faith. For both were children of my Lord.

For who am I

I am the Lone Rider, but I am not alone, God rides with me everywhere I go.

So, when you see me riding down the street know that I am not alone.

Join me and feel the present of God and be blessed by his presents for we are not alone.

SILENT KILLS

More and more I am understanding what my silent is doing, simple it kills,

Because I have not raised a voice, I count at least six black people killed in useless violent  

Not just losing their life but our whole as a people devalued.

There is an underlining fear that we most address

A fear that has been tearing us apart.

A fear that is not real but feels real to White America.

I will not be silent about this, White America

Stay this course and the fear will become a reality.

Continue the practice of divide and conquering

Continue the practice of hatemongering

And you will realize your fear.

If you continue Wille Lynch’s practices

That you are self-brain washing to create your destruction.

To quote him” You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks.”

So, you see you can not control without doing some damage to your own

And that is the problem. open your eyes. Stop looking back glorifying the misled practices of old,

<p value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">I am done being silent Are you ready to listen?I am done being silent Are you ready to listen?
