Revolution and Aftermath... Hey Playthell thought you drop the piece...

Photo

This Revolution is being televised… just not here.  The turmoil in Egypt is not so unfamiliar proven to be a land destined  as a hot bed of discontent and dictatorship from the beginning of time and the the energy of a spiritual war  fuel  passion of believers beyond intellectualize commentary which is voided once the masses turn land into a field of blood.  There are questions of the return of Pharaohs to Egypt. Revolution will have to bare bloodshed is always violent. Religion and Politic have never in all of history been bedfellows and the partnership prove cataclysm.  I was reading an article in todays New York Times   "Revolution and Aftermath" highlights an succession leading up to the Revolution now present in Egypt with reference to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Their passion knowing death is sure to follow leaves no room for why the burning of the American flag is a shown resentment towards … hey Brother B you have one completely immersed in politics, Ancient Civilization, historical truths and political facts… keep us informed with your commentaries on the Times. Peace

Good morning good people spread your love ...

As-Salāmu `Alaykum good people.  Blessing out to the universe, peace and tolerance.  Disturbing reports of racism in giving during the Sandy relief efforts in our area. Sister Maulene and I are hearing as late several volunteers with food,clothes and other needs went out to certain areas if Far Rockaway were told their help and donation was not necessary.  After an emotional election and massive suffering these particular group of individuals still harbor racism by refusing help from Others. I can only hope these fools if harden hearts, ignorance will discover the light of humanity.  Position in a twist on the couch listening to Al Sharpton  Hour of Power reading my favorite news periodical Amsterdam News after re reading the brilliant autobiography "Nigger" by  Dick Gregory . I advise all to read this intensely emotional book and feel each word discovering new tears of pain and joy.  A short re-read but great!!! So flip on the Meet the Press and check out Brother Al Sharpton ...  Peace and love. .. Must finish Ellison's "Three Days Before The Shooting...

On Amiri Baracka: Thought Policeman | Commentaries on the Times


Dear Brother B you need not bother with the banter but set the record straight I can relate with the words of light as we know in the case of Romney.  One should listen closely to each read that is read fine 
manner in which delivered thrills the mind constantly requiring more to satisfy this word nymph.
So shower them with flowers at the feet of modern day  gladiators of polemic, prose, commentary and essays. A witness to new public forum of a jester and the verbal rap ability of word kings. Far gone days of Caligula  its whirling weaponry and head choppers… but I would be whipped and called a wench if not make mention these intelligent men of various big eyes which orgies are thus a warrant thirst for such frivolity. One who acquired a distinct taste for unique love… Thus be that of a gladiator words men  who hold world court on social media for onlookers who relish and a lover of Medieval debates spun such 13th century read of "The Owl and the Nightingale"  well tendered with some gentle swipes delved those jesters or poets even handed comments of Your acute written ability to tell the truth as recorded and not as one might wish to see in thine own eyes. First we who know the rule of thumb in such a battle "to thine own self be true." Thus reap the shame of many men who fallen at their very own feet with by a lie or mad fabrication.  In closing this nymph will tie up my wings in conclude with the following .... 

Captain of our fairy band,
Helena is here at hand,
And the youth, mistook by me,
Pleading for a lover's fee.
Shall we their fond pageant see?
Lord, what fools these mortals be!           Be peace brother man ... Lepadah

Sunday cool out after Coney Island

Peace good people happy to see FEMA,RED CROSS out in Coney Island today. We distributed baby food,cleaning products and other items today. I was surprised to see the Cyclone, Wonder Wheel was still standing amid the rest. The boardwalk although piles of sand everywhere still the beach was amazingly beautiful and respect for the supreme being .  Reflecting and thumbing thru books one book actually finished "From Babylon to Timbuktu" by Rudolph R. Windsor ... Very interesting.  Goodnight and keep it peace and humble.

As stated President Barack Obama is a true politician without question his political prowess proves to be an exquisite leader beyond those who raise political hullabaloo hold contempt for such a genius mind unable to stand intelligently they would rather defy and continue their in-corrigible behavior. There is rumor about the Presidential cabinet during this fiscal crisis which stems from past misappropriation of finance, greed and blatant thievery. So now a true leader as those before him will continue to lead and replace those who shiver in fear at their own inadequacies and deficits. As noted during Monroe's Presidency he faced an economic crisis known as the Panic of 1819. It was noted as the first major depression to hit the country since the 1700s. During this period which stemmed from declining imports and exports, and sagging agricultural prices. A number of state banks suspended payment on their notes and declared bankruptcy, with the Second Bank of the United States shifting to more conservative policies. The result was high unemployment and an increase in bankruptcies and foreclosures. The paradox is that an intelligent leader will make adjustments, those who choose to jump ship…. jump! So President Barack Obama continue with Chicago finesse to forge ahead without the weight of cowards and fence straddlers who are insignificant to this Political dilemma. Ardent along side Susan Rice. "Go after me over Benghazi." Thanks once again PB for calling this exactly what it is… drivel

Sunday Dinner

Photo

Today was spent helping others get through difficult times in Far Rockaway at The Hammel Houses Serving Sunday dinner to residents who were pass over by FEMA and Red Cross trucks a few days ago. Where were the news reporters to highlight their story. Isolated from the rest of the world displaced by mother nature and political biases this Sunday dinner on a glorious sunny afternoon brought forth smiles, heartfelt appreciation and extreme gratitude. The church down the street completely destroyed by water the rugs, furnishing sat on the street as I walked with Lucy to the beach sand was swept onto streets and sidewalks sand dunes along the way, twisted metal and boardwalk debris. Thankful knowing I had a warm place and lights. The residents lined up and a future young politician we called him as this young boy about nine a pearl smile and said to me "you know it's been hard on us out here do sad but thank you ma'am we so glad you came thank you all we are so happy.  Helping us move some water and smiling.  What charisma this handsome young man is the future President we laugh handing him an extra plate and a slice of red velvet cake/vanilla cupcake he requested so nicely. Walking he look at me and  thank you do much for coming. Yes here was the forgotten some finding their loved ones on this day who they have not seen since Sandy hit the shore. As the sun began to sit and the chill creeped into fabrics of  residents who gathered the last remainder of food,drinks returning to their dark apartment still with no electricity and heat as the police lights blinked and we packed up our cars leaving them in the dark wondering about next time. They need food, clothing and sustainability to reconstruct lives again.  Waiting on lines waiting for a rescue.  Peace and blessing out to appreciative Far Rock...  We'll be back you my people are not forgotten.

Reflection...

Photo

President Barack Obama is back in the White House after a vicious campaign of blatant lies, insults, racial epithets and political flame throwing from Tea Party/ Republican crazed evangelicals and other simpletons as previously stated . Now to the task at hand a angels wedding, writing, reconstruction of all our lives here along the eastern seaboard. The disaster left behind by mother nature is a testimony to our mortality. A sitting is necessary at the A Baptist Church this Sunday to appreciate, reflect, and offering our congratulations to our President for as stated in my previous blog his meticulous maneuvering through the imbrogolio which presented a task by all means and President Obama holding true to his posture unrelenting steadfast with solid conviction. Yes there is a lot for us all to do to make our existing here more beneficial purpose for being decent to our fellow man/woman. Constantly in search of myself as that of Siddhartha. A resident feeler to higher elements in this life. A citizen of the world. To cross into a republic for which stand is TRUTH. We are rather comfortable with lies, deception and the only way is to purge oneself of all transgression and allow the super natural to hold one to the iron grid in order to sustain and become born again. This action might leave one with little or no friends but in this life time only one might stand beside. A war with thy self is yet the most firm with which to fight. Discharging my succubus. I stand before this test a miserable reflection of past deeds. I am certain to slip along the path but will eventually continue before ones death and let the record play at the end so my spirit might dance….

Reflection Election Night 2012

Photo
Once again a big thank you to Brother Rafeek gifting one acute knowledge (political) instructing me on a more broader perspective as he very well knew my status and put my feet to the fire and cast aside my emotions revealing a pristine picture. By reaching in to rip apart ones heart lamenting it in girded steal so bidding all adieu. As I begin my journey pouring through  ...A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House [Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. I will continue my seclusion until I am reborned politically. Bless all my Bards and thank you Rafeek so I needed the outer box giving me a breath. I'm under a hordes of blankets, ear plugs and a stiff swig of liquor. Good night y'all and may the supreme guide us all.

Truth is the light...

I left before dawn early light to be the first on line to cast my vote this day filled with anticipation and nerves which has been a rattle within tormenting me for several months since the political race for President.  I walked anxiously shivering in the cold finally arriving at my polling site where a line had already started before 5:30 a.m.  We waiting in silence for the doors to open at 6:00. I walked in armed with spectacles, extra pen and all necessary identification.  Signed in, received my ballot, selected the only contender, scanned successfully the vote was in.  Saying a quiet prayer along the way to work  my stomach floppy over this election I can only hope that truth, honesty will prevail. A word to simpletons you're the void of all conversation and deemed not worthy of dialogue one can only wish you future insight to save your ignorant ASS... Peace may we all be blessed.

Good Day GO VOTE!!!
