Democrats wake up!   For God’s sake wake up.

That caravan of 5,000 immigrants will arrive at our borders just before the upcoming elections.  It’s blessing in disguise for Trump.

Transgender of the Original Package?



The other day, I was listening to The View and the Ladies were discussing our President’s latest faux pas.  That being, not allowing transgender people into the military. Continue reading

SELMA, The Movie

On January 15th, I had the day off and I went to see the new film by Oprah Winfrey, Selma.

As I write this, tears are welling in my eyes because of all of the emotions stirred up in me by the film.

I was sitting in that darkened theater watching as those four pretty little Black girls and one handsome young man, all dressed in their ‘Sunday Go To Meeting’ clothes descended the stairs of the 16th Street Baptist Church and I knew what was coming. I wanted to scream, ‘move,’ but history is a thing unchangeable.

It is hard to grasp in this day and age, the brutally and hatred of those years. You want to look back and tell yourself that that happened in some other country and to some other people. Not us. Surely we have enough sense to know that skin color is only a visual illusion set upon us by a God who felt us unworthy to trend on his territory. And so far, we’ve done nothing but prove him right. As a Pastor, Martin Luther King, Jr. knew that and he set about to change our perceptions of each other so that God might change his view of us. And by ‘us,’ I mean all of us, red, yellow, black, white, and brown.

I only wish that the film had come out much earlier so that the people of Ferguson, Missouri might have had an opportunity to see it before their nights of burning, looting, and rioting in the name of justice. Perhaps, if they had seen what true strength and courage, in the face of racial discrimination looks like, perhaps things might have gone differently.

Perhaps, if they’d never heard about Jimmy Lee Jackson and his death.


Something else the movie Selma, also struck a particular chord with me. It was when Lyndon B. Johnson and Dr. King were talking in the White House and President Johnson used the phrase, “A War on Poverty.’ He was setting forth a new ideology that he hoped would change Dr. King’s focus.

While growing up during the late sixties and seventies, I heard that phrase used many times and I thought as most people did, back then, that it was a good thing. But sitting in that theater the other day, I heard it differently – perhaps the way Dr. King must have heard it.

I heard, The War on Poverty – an most Black people living in America are living in poverty – so, i.e. The War on Poverty is a War on Black people. It’s no wonder, Dr. King didn’t fall for it, the way we fell for the War on Drugs.

It is a great film and very thought provoking.

I’dalso  like to give a shout out to the Costume Designer, Ruth E. Carter. You really caught the look of that era.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 39 years old when he was murdered (and silenced)!

MH 370 and MH 17

Route taken by MH17


I applaud President Obama for taking the high road and not answering Russian President’s Putin blatant act of violence with more violence.

Make no mistake about it, if we start hurling missiles, non-nuclear ones, hopefully, at Russian, China (MH370) and North Korea will come to Russia’s defense as in my blog-book, ‘onethreethirteen’.

Let’s not start World War 3 because some guy wants to bolster his ego. If we’re going to destroy each other and the world, let’s do it for something or someone better than Vladimir Putin.

The Blog-book onethreethirteen

To all my followers of the blog-book, ‘onethreethirteen’. Onethreethirteen is by no means an unfavorable look at President Barak Obama’s administration.  It is however, an indictiment of the Repulican Party and the way in which it has manipiulated the deep racial divides that still exist in this country.

America has a long history of telling other countries about their Human Rights violations while ignoring our own. We are good at talking the talk but not so good at walking the talk.

I am thouroghly convinced that Russian President Vladimir Putin has also taken note of the bickering between the Democratic and Republican parties and realized that it has never been worse. But more importantly, it has affored him an excellent opportunity.

Without a doubt our internal bickering will keep us from uniting, as a country, behind President Obama keeping him from putting up a strong opposition to Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Cirmea.

Putin knows that the Republicans will never stand behind President Barack Obama the way they did George Bush.

We had better start asking ourselves the same hard question Kuwait had to answer when George Walker Bush invaded the Middle East seeking to seize their lucrative oil wells. Are we willing to let them burn?

In other words, are we willing to let Putin have Cirmea just so Barack Obama and the Democratic party will look weak going into the next Presidental election?

It might be too late to stop Putin by then.
