Rick Santorum: No Conservative

Rick Santorum: No Conservative

 Rick Santorum

Jack Kerwick from the New American website wrote a good article about GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum stating he's no conservative.  Now it's true that Santorum's been a stickler when it comes to supporting the pro-life position for the most part and his opposition to gay marriage, however, he admitted during the GOP presidential debate in Arizona that he supported funding for Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood provides contraceptives and provides for abortions.  The actions by Santorum when he was a Senator was inconsistent with his pro-life stance. 

Kerwick presents a list of positions that Santorum took as Senator which in turn supported the growth of big government such as his support for "No Child Left Behind" in 2002, Medicare Part D, which provided for prescription drug coverage in Medicare, which in turn expanded Medicare.  He also supported his former colleague, Arlen Specter, a Republican at the time during Specter's re-election campaign in 2004.  Specter was a supporter of abortion rights for women.  Santorum explained that the reasoning behind supporting Specter was that Specter was the next in line to become head of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2005 and Santorum felt he would be play an instrumental role in pushing for George W. Bush's judicial nominees in the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time.  Santorum was a big spender.  He supported earmarks and even voted for the bloated farm bill that then-president George W. Bush signed in 2002.

Obama's Popularity Could Take A Hit If Gas Prices Continue To Spike

Obama's Popularity Could Take A Hit If Gas Prices Continue To Spike Fox News



According to Fox News, if gas prices continue to spike, his popularity could take a hit when it comes to the presidential election this Fall.  Recent polls show President Obama's popularity has risen recently.  Now Fox News said spiking gas prices could be a detriment to the president's popularity with the American people.  Prices for unleaded regular gasoline have spiked 12 cents on average within the past three weeks.  According to many analysts, they are poised to climb higher this spring likely breaking the $4 a gallon barrier, and could hold steady throughout the summer months.  The excuses for the gasoline spikes are uncertainty in the oil-rich Middle East, and some U.S. refineries being taken off-line for maintenance in advance of spring blending changes.  Larry Saboto, political scientist at the University of Virginia, used a chart to show a correlation between a president's unpopularity and high gasoline prices dating back to the Carter administration.  The day President Obama was inaugurated, the average price of a gallon of gas was $1.84.  Today the average price is $3.52, a spike of over 90 percent.  The highest average price per gallon was during the Bush administration when it average $3.81 a gallon. 

I predict regardless how high the price of gasoline rises between now and the presidential election in November, it's not going to adversely affect President Obama's chances at re-election.  Given the fact the choice of GOP candidates is weak and there's a possibility of a third-party candidate running for president this year, President Obama's chances of winning re-election are very likely, sad to say.  Right now if the presidential election were being held today and President Obama faces Mitt Romney in November, President Obama defeats Romney by a percentage of 49% - 42%, according to a CBS/New York Times survey.  Regardless what happens concerning gas prices, I don't think it will stop President Obama's chances of re-election this fall.  I believe the forces of Nimrod want President Obama to win in November.  I wish I was wrong but I don't feel confident Romney or any other GOP candidate will beat Obama in November.

Glenn Beck Reveals Fox News Wanted Him to Stop Hammering on George Soros

Glenn Beck: Fox News told me to shut up



Does anyone find it surprising that Glenn Beck was censored by Fox News last year?  I don't find it surprising.  The way Glenn Beck was pounding at George Soros and all his minions you knew that media executives at the giant cable network was going to tell Glenn to tone it down.  The network would like to make us think that it's fair and balanced.  However, if the network tries to stop Beck from presenting the truth about Soros, then what's "fair" and "balanced" about Fox News?  Nothing.  Click on the above link to read the article from World Net Daily.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg Says the U.S. Constitution is Inferior

Supreme Court justice: U.S. Constitution inferior

 Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg says the U.S Constitution is inferior

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who was appointed by then President Bill Clinton to the U.S Supreme Court in 1993, says that if she were to write a new constitution now, she would look elsewhere to other countries to write a new constitution.  She says that the U.S. Constitution is inferior and outdated.  She was being interviewed by Al Hayat in Egypt, which is trying to develop a government after Egyptians citizens deposed longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak last year.  Egypt is having a difficult time assembling a "democratic" form of government as the Muslim Brotherhood as a political party has been assembling a majority in the country.  The goals of the Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic caliphate worldwide.  Here's what she was asked: "Would your honor's advice be to get a part of other countries' constitutions as a model, or should we develop our own draft?"  She replied, "You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone on since the end of World War II.  I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.  I might look at the constitution of South Africa.  That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary.  It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done." 

Here is a Supreme Court Justice that has sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution showing disdain for the Constitution.  That's of great concern to me.  Matthew Staver, chief of Liberty Counsel, says Justice Ginsberg's comments about our Constitution undermine the Supreme Court as an institution dedicated to the rule of law, as well as our founding document.  I concur with him on that.  You can tell that she has disdain for the Constitution according to the way she votes in Supreme Court rulings.  I want to declare to you the problem isn't the U.S. Constitution.  The problem is judges like Ruth Bader Ginsberg and America's elected elite shred the Constitution on a daily basis.  If she really believes the U.S. Constitution is inferior and outdated, then it would be wise if she should step down because her opinions are going to be biased because she doesn't believe in the U.S. Constitution.  She's not going to do that because she is one of the "wise judges" who knows what's best for our country.  She and other judges deliberately distort the Constitution to achieve their desired goals.  They have an agenda for this country that's unconstitutional.

We all hear from different politicians such as President Obama that the Constitution is a flawed document.  I personally don't believe that.  However, there is a provision within the Constitution to amend it.  It's through the amendment process.  There's a way to make changes to the Constitution.  The 27 Amendments to the Constitution throughout the 235 year process bears fact that the Constitution can be changed.  However, it must be changed democratically by approval 2/3's of the state legislatures.  Congress can't amend the Constitution on it's own.  President Obama, the Democrats in Congress, and Supreme Court justices such as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, for example, know their agenda never would be implemented through democratic means.  Therefore, they have to circumvent the Constitution to push their agenda on the American people.  That's what they're doing.  The problem isn't the inferiority of the Constitution.  The Constitution is one of the greatest documents ever in the history of the world.  The problem are those who hide behind black robes that are traitors to the Constitution.  Those that are traitors to the Constition also extend to both Houses of Congress and President Obama.

The Federal Government Has no Business in Meddling With the Church

Cardinal-Designate Timothy Dolan: President Barack Obama Needs To Stop 'Intruding Into Internal Life Of Church' « CBS New York

Archbishop Timothy Dolan (file / credit: Chris Hondros/Getty Images)Archbishop Timothy Dolan

On Wednesday there was a sharp rebuke from Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan to the president.  President Obama has been insisting that Catholic institutions provide free birth control to their employees.  Dolan said to CBS 2's Marcia Kramer, "The federal government should do what it's traditionally done since July 4, 1776, namely back out of intruding intruding into the internal life of a Church."  Archbishop Dolan is exactly right.

Regardless what one may believe concerning the Catholic Church's position on birth control, the government has no right to dictate the church's religious policies--right or wrong.  The government has no perogative to force Catholic institutions or any type of religious institution to provide free birth control to their employees.  President Obama's meddling with the Catholic Church's religious beliefs is a violation of the First Amendment where it says that Congress is not to establish nor prohibit the free exercise of religion.  The government needs to stay out of the business of the church.  I'm not a Catholic nor do I agree with most of their doctrine, but they have the right to teach and propagate their doctrine to their followers in America.  They have the right to propagate their own doctrine even when it goes contrary to political correctness.  President Obama and his Democrat minions are dead wrong in interfering with the policies of religious institutions.  The government has no right to force the Catholic church or any church to abide by the government's policies. 

I believe in the last days before Christ comes back we're going to see the government more and more meddle in the affairs of the church, with the above example that Catholic institutions offer free birth control to their employees.  Religious freedom is coming under attack America.  This issue is just one example.  We'll continue seeing the government trying to usurp authority over the church as time passes.  To read the full story, click on the link above.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rejects State Ban on Gay Marriage

Court Rejects State Ban on Gay Marriage - WSJ.com

  

One of the new euphemisms for "gay marriage" is marriage equality.  I can remember this time last year Barbara Bush, daughter of former president George W. Bush, making her appeal to New Yorker's to support marriage equality.  As it later turned out, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill legalizing same-sex marriage.  I have some news for you: There's no such thing as marriage equality.  There's only one type of marriage that's justified in the eyes of God.  That type of marriage is heterorsexual marriage which is marriage between one man and one woman for a lifetime.  That's the only type of marriage acceptable in God's eyes.  What we see is a group of elites dressed in black robes that are dictating the humanist agenda for America by unconstitutionally overturning Proposition 8 in California.  America has become nothing but an oligarchy.  What you see taking place in political circles regardless whether it's state or the federal level is the will of the ruling elites dictating the agenda in the United States.  We hear so much talk about the Constitution.  These ruling elites know there's no way their agenda will pass by means of the ballot box.  So they circumvent the Constitution and make their own rulings by fiat.  There's no way one can read the Constitution and justify same-sex marriage.  It's an atrocity that we have ruling elites that are supposed to be so "wise" and "educated" justifying "same-sex" marriage.  The Bible in Romans mentions about those who profess themselves to be wise.  They in turn prove themselves to be fools.  However, I'm not surprised because in the political arena it's all about power and money.  The homosexual rights agenda has gained tremendous ground since Bill Clinton became president in 1993.  I can remember when sodomy wasn't mentioned in the news like it is today.  You can thank Bill Clinton for bringing sodomy into the American forefront.  I can remember the outrage amongst some conservatives over Clinton trying to end the ban on gays serving in the military.  Now we're dealing with courts all across the country working behind the scenes with the gay rights mafia to overturn state referendums on gay marriage, such as the case in California.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday struck down California's voter-mandated ban on gay marriages, but stopped short of finding that other states or the federal government were required to recognize same-sex marriage.  The decision will set the stage for the Supreme Court to weigh in on gay marriage as soon as next year, and could add fuel to the issue in the presidential campaign.  In a 2-1 vote, a panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said California's 2008 law, popularly known as Proposition 8, violated the Fourteenth Amendment's equal-protection clause by stigmatizing a minority group without legitimate reason.  That reasoning is fallacious.  When interpreting amendments to the Constitution or the Constitution in general, such as the Fourteenth Amendment, for example, one must look at the original intent behind it so it can be interpreted in its proper context.  The equality issue that the Fourteenth Amendment was speaking of was about equal rights for blacks following the Civil War.  To insert sodomites into that reasoning is fallacious.  I won't proceed any further with this topic.  To read the full story covering the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, click on the link from WSJ.com.

Santorum Wins Colorado

Santorum plows through Colorado - The Washington Post

 Rick Santorum wins Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado, even though there were no delegates from Missouri and Minnesota.

Late yesterday evening Rick Santorum pulled through with a win in a Colorado.  He had a strong showing throughout the state, including rural and some urban areas.  Santorum carried 38 counties that four years ago went to Mitt Romney. 

Santorum Projected To Win Minnesota, Missouri GOP Contests

Santorum Projected To Win Minnesota, Missouri GOP Contests Fox News

 Rick Santorum, the victor in Missouri and Colorado

Rick Santorum scored a couple of victories in the Minnesota caucus and the Missouri primary, even though Missouri has no delegates.  As of right now, Santorum's in a tight race with Romney in Colorado.  Early poll results in Colorado showed Santorum with a commanding lead over Romney, but none of the major counties had reported yet.  As of right now, we don't have official word of the results of the Colorado caucus.  Santorum has had his best night thus far in the GOP primary.  Ever since Santorum was belatedly declared the winner in Iowa, he hasn't won a caucus/primary until Tuesday evening.  Just a few weeks ago it appeared GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was making a resurgence when he surprisingly won South Carolina.  Now his popularity has skidded in the polls.  Gingrich wasn't on the ballot in Missouri but it doesn't make any difference because there's no delegates from that state.

With 83% of precincts reporting in Minnesota, Santorum was ahead with 45% with Ron Paul placing second with 27%.  In Missouri, the primary is just a statewide straw poll, which will set the stage for the delegate-awarding caucuses a month from now.  Rick Santorum won the straw poll with 55% of the vote, Romney had 25% of the vote, followed by Paul with 12%.  Gingrich wasn't on the ballot.  In Colorado with 51% of the precincts reporting, Romney was slightly ahead with 37% of the vote with Santorum right ahead with 35% of the vote.  I will officially let you know the winner of the Colorado caucus as soon as the results are in.  Click on the link above from FoxNews.com to read the latest story.

Reid: Senate Will Not Pass a Budget This Year

Reid: Senate will not pass a budget this year – Patriot Update

Senator Harry Reid

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters this past Friday that Senate Democratic leaders don't plan to propose a budget this year.  "We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year--it's done, we don't need to do it," Reid said, according to The HillThis man was re-elected in Nevada in 2010?  We wonder why we get the government we deserve.  No wonder.  The foolish, idiotic statement that the Senate Majority Leader made shows what kind of fools we have in the Senate.  No I probably should rephrase that.  We have traitors in the White House, the House, and the Senate.  I think Reid knows better.  He doesn't care.  He will be fine even when America goes bankrupt.  He should be thrown out of the Senate.  I believe Harry Reid deserves to be recalled.  Instead, there's a group of union officials in Wisconsin that are trying to impeach Governor Scott Walker.  I think they're recalling the wrong person.  Harry Reid needs to be recalled.  Why don't the residents of Nevada call for the removal of Harry Reid?  The only problem is Harry Reid isn't the only problem--it's everyone in Congress-all 535 of our elected officials.  There's nothing being done in Washington to make budget cuts a reality.  I have to blame the GOP House because they're given the power in the Constitution to defund unconstitutional spending.  That's not even happened and it won't happen in this Congress. These career politicians think of nothing but being re-elected. 

The last time a budget was passed was in April 2009 in Congress.  Since then, the logo in Congress is "Spend, baby spend."  That's all that's taking place.  Both political parties are to blame for the outrageous deficit and it's been happening for the last few decades.

Romney Wins Nevada GOP Caucuses, According to Fox News Projection

Romney Wins Nevada GOP Caucuses, Fox News Projects Fox News

The victor: Mitt Romney in a resounding win in Nevada

Mitt Romney won the Nevada caucus very handily Saturday evening.  He won Nevada by a double-digit margin.  The field will next charge into a quartet of contests which will either fuel or check Romney's momentum, according to Fox News.  Newt Gingrich, who appeared to be making a comeback when he won the South Carolina primary a couple of weekends ago, held an unusual press conference late Saturday evening assuring the public he's not dropping out of the race.  He also took swipes at Romney while he was at it.  The former House Speaker claims his chances should improve the longer the race drags on.  He stated he felt by the time the Texas primary rolls around in April, he will be able to claim "frontrunner" status.  I say "not a chance Newt."  The reason being is because the GOP establishment bosses don't want Gingrich to win the GOP nomination.  I believe they have the race fixed for Romney to secure the GOP nomination.  That's just my opinion, whatever that's worth. 

With 71% of the precincts reporting, Romney was pulling 48% in Nevada, with Gingrich pulling 26%.  Rick Santorum had 14% and Ron Paul had 4%.  It takes 1144 delegates to win the GOP nomination.  The polls showed Romney leading the field by double digits among evengelical Christian caucus-goers.  Romney was back by 48% of evangelicals, compared with 27% for Gingrich.  Nevada also has several Mormons living in that state.

Dottie Rambo: The Gifted Songwriter of the Twentieth Century (Part 16)

Back in 1972 Buck and Dottie Rambo bought some land outside of Nashville to build a farm house.  They had several acres of land where they could grow all kinds of fruit and vegetable.  They built a very nice house.  One of the rooms of the house is the room where Dottie wrote many of her songs.  One of the special productions she wrote a few decades ago was "Down by the Creek Bank."  I don't know when that was written but she and David Hutsinger put this production together.  I'm going to be featuring YouTube posts on this great children's production from years ago today.  Next Sunday, I will be presenting the background behind some of the great and popular songs Dottie had written years ago.  The first three YouTube posts on the production "Down by the Creek Bank" were performed by County Avenue Baptist Church.  I don't know the location of that particular church.

Komen Foundation Reverses Decision To End Planned Parenthood Grants

Komen Foundation Reverses Decision To End Planned Parenthood Grants Fox News

    komen_hq_020312.jpg

Yesterday Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced that it was reversing its decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood, after facing all sorts of mounting pressure from lawmakers who support abortion rights and after accusations that the breast cancer awareness organization had bowed to political influences.  Susan G. Brinker, the founder of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure defended the organizations' original intentions for making the prior decision to end Planned Parenthood grants.  Brinker said that she wasn't trying to cast doubt upon the organization's commitment to their mission of saving women's lives.  She said the reasoning behind their funding criteria wasn't for political reasons.  They weren't intentionally trying to penalize Planned Parenthood.  Brinker stated they were trying to set responsible standards in regards to grant money. 

Brinker said she would change the criteria in regards to conditions involving grant money.  Planned Parenthood was disqualified because of criteria that barred funding to groups that are under investigation.  As of present Planned Parenthood is being probed by a Florida Republican Congressman.  Going forward, Komen will not use "political" investigations as a reason to bar funding to a family planning organization. 

I find it tragic that the Komen Foundation caved under political pressure from the liberal lawmakers to restore funding to Planned Parenthood.  I believe the truth needs to be known about Planned Parenthood and its clandestine activities in regards to trying to coerce young women to have abortions.  Planned Parenthood is not a pro-family organization and we don't need federal dollars or money from other organizations going into this insidious organization.  I hope Rep. Cliff Kearns (R-FL) continues the investigation into Planned Parenthood's activities.

Donald Trump Endorses Mitt Romney In Republican Presidential Race

Donald Trump Endorses Mitt Romney In Republican Presidential Race

Donald Trump Endorses Mitt Romney



Donald Trump, a real estate mogul who was mulling a presidential run last year, has endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on Thursday on the famed Las Vegas strip.  Prior to Trump's endorsement of Romney, rumors from Newt Gingrich's advisers were saying that Donald would be anointing Newt instead. 

I'm not going to take the time to enunciate the details about Trump's endorsement of Romney.  Prior to Thursday's announcement from Trump, there has been speculation that Donald Trump might run for a third-party presidential run.  I've even speculated of the possibility more than once on this blog that Trump might decide to run as a third-party candidate.  It still could happen.  You never know.  If Trump decides not to run for president on a third-party ticket, I'm certain somebody will step up to the plate and run on a third-party ticket whether it be Ron Paul or someone who gives voice to conservative, constitutional principles.  Regarding Ron Paul, he will not win the Republican nomination for president.  I think that's very obvious.  You never know what his plans are when he officially drops out of the race.  I do believe when the ink is dried that Romney will win the GOP nomination to face President Obama in the Fall.  I believe if Romney wins the nomination, there's a good possibility that there will be a third-party candidate to announce his running for president this year.  We'll wait and see.

Food Stamps Up 45%; Federal Handouts Up 32%

Food Stamps Up 45%; Federal Handouts Up 32% – Patriot Update

Dependency Nation

For quite some time GOP candidate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has been characterizing President Barack Obama as the "food-stamp president."  Gingrich has depicted the Democratic Party as a whole as the party of "food stamps" and the Republican Party as the party of "paychecks."  Recently at a Fox News/Wall Street Debate in South Carolina, Newt Gingrich once again stated that President Obama is the most successful food stamp president in the nation.  He drew ire from the media as a result of that statement.  There are those in the liberal media who have been saying that the statement Newt made is a racist statement.  What's racist about that?  Facts are facts regardless who is president.  It doesn't make any difference what the racial composition of the president is.  There are more Americans receiving some type of government assistance from the federal government in the last three years than in the whole history of this nation.  That's a fact.  I do know that the president can't create jobs in the private sector.  I don't expect Obama to create jobs in the private sector.  However, many of his policies in recent years have stifled growth in the private sector with such pieces of legislation as the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010, Dodd-Frank, and other bills passed in the last three years.  Due to much of the legislation passed by the Democratic Congress of 2009-10, many businesses are afraid to create new jobs because they don't know what the costs of Obamacare will entail once it's fully implemented in 2014, for example.  Another problem is the GOP House hasn't used their power given to them by the Constitution to defund Obama's socialist legislation such as Obamacare, for example.  The Republicans aren't helping matters by not choking off funding from unconstitutional spending.  The actions of the GOP House within the last years haven't helped ease the uncertainty in the business world. 
I've listened to talk show hosts such as Sean Hannity say repeatedly on his radio talk show and on Fox News that President Obama has failed in his job when it comes to his presidency and the creation of new jobs.  I wish that statement was the truth.  It's not.  It's not in President Obama's grand scheme to create the right environment so the private sector can create new jobs.  Instead, President Obama and his minions are doing everything in their power to destroy capitalism.  President Obama and his minions are transforming this country into a socialist country, following after Saul Alinsky's playbook, Rules for Radicals, which I will speak about at another time.  The truth is the agenda that's being implemented by the Obama administration is what you see taking place right now.  They are trying to make it a reality that most Americans will have to rely upon the government for their living in some form or fashion.  A free and independent America isn't in the Obama administration's agenda.  The federal government's goal is to dictate every move we make.  I believe everything that's taking place is exactly the way our elected elite have planned it.  President Obama has been very successful in implementing the new world order agenda.  Never before has a president been so successful in implementing the globalist agenda like Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush, to a lesser degree.  Everything's right on schedule.  I believe the finish line is just in sight.  It might be as close as a few arm lengths.  Once that happens, America will be a fascist country.  Fascism is what's around the corner.

Bruce Llewellyn, a black businessman who forged the path for blacks in the business world, died at age 82 in April of that year.  He was very successful in the world of business.  He was successful in such fields such as banking, broadcasting, coca-cola bottling and groceries.  He died of renal failure that year.  He was on dialysis for a number of years.  I didn't post this article because he died nearly couple of years ago.  He's one of the blacks I wanted to honor for Black History Month.  Throughout his life, he repeated his father's dictum that blacks must work twice as hard as whites to achieve half as much.  In summing up his life, he stated success didn't come easily.  He called it nerve-wracking, gut-wrenching, and pain inducing.  He was one of the richest black Americans with an estimated personal income at $160 million.  He was appointed to government posts and advised presidents.

Romney Wins Big in Florida Primary

Romney Wins Big in Florida Primary - WSJ.com

Mitt Romney with his wife Ann

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won by a double-digit margin Tuesday evening defeating Newt Gingrich 46% - 32%.  Fueled by a nearly 5 to 1 spending advantage over his top rival, Romney outpaced the former House Speaker among conservatives and Tea Party supporters and drew nearly even with him among evangelical Christians, according to surveys of voters leaving polling sites.  Those voters had gravitated to Romney's opponents in prior contests. 

As I've just mentioned, Newt Gingrich came in second place with 32% of the vote.  Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum trailed a distant third at 17% and Texas Congressman Ron Paul placed at 7%.  The results of this primary make Romney a formidable front runner.  As of right now in the latest poll, Romney has an edge in Nevada.  The Nevada caucus will be held this Saturday in Nevada.

My Focus For Black History Month 2012

  

 Carter G. Woodson, founder of Black History Month

Carter G. Woodson--African American Trailblazers



Carter G. Woodson Tribute



Today is the beginning of Black History Month.  This will be my third year in honoring blacks for their achievements over the past 400+ years blacks have lived in America.  I will be featuring periodic posts of  various black people who have made remarkable achievements in the history of our nation.  This year I'm planning on featuring posts of very successful black businessman.  Tomorrow I'm going to be featuring J. Bruce Llewellyn, who died at age 82 in 2010.  Llewellyn was a trailblazer for black businessmen in America.  He was the nation's richest black American with a personal wealth estimated at times to exceed $160 million, according to The New York Times.  I will post the link along with the post tomorrow.  He's worth reading about. 

There will be other black businessmen that I will be recognizing throughout the month of February.  I feel that it's important that we honor those that have been successful in the realm of business, esp. given the condition of our current economy.  We need some business role models in this country--black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc.  My hope is that by featuring posts of successful black businessmen it will encourage other black people to work hard and start businesses of their own.  We need to encourage others to pursue the American Dream.  There's so much blackballing today of businesses by both the media and our political elite.  Sadly, some of it is justified, esp. the multinational corporations.    However, not every successful business that has grown large has done so illegally.  There are some businesses that have grown over the years did so legitimately.  You can grow a business and not be crooked in doing so. 

Other posts that I will be featuring, Lord willing, will be some black gospel or negro spirituals.  There are some black musicians in the realm of Gospel that have superb musical talent.  If I find some that I consider worth posting I will do so.  There will probably be some other subjects in black history I will be featuring this month.
