FDR was speaking to the Tea Party of his day. The people had his back and his enemies hated him for it. His candidacy was a precursor to the situation we are in today. The Speaker of the House and some of his members continue to insult the President of the United States. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) started the unheard of chorus by calling the President a liar during his State of the Union. Why all this hate? Because he is black? Because he is not white? Because he is the best speaker in politics today? Because his campaign was so new and spectacular? Because he is a Harvard graduate? Because he is rich and yet champions the issues of the middle-class and the poor…like the Kennedy‘s who are white? Because this millionaire doesn’t spending each waking hour scheming to become a billionaire? History will tell us. President Roosevelt told us how we and our President should feel about the Tea Party. They are few, full of ideology and would run the nation into a ditch so long as they got their way. And, without compromising in negotiations. Is it too strong to call the Tea Party the enemy of the majority of American people? The answer is in each of our hearts. This is your Republican party of today who are jumping on the Tea Party bandwagon. Some of these rogue politicians are:

The Tea Party means well, I suppose. They have opinions and express them with the right guaranteed them by The Constitution. But, they do not represent the MAJORITY of the American people. Witness recent opinion recent polls. I don’t know what they are telling you on FoxNews, but, I am told that they are themselves a conservative republican outlet that the FEC inexplicably allows to operate and collect campaign money. While one may think MSNBC as liberal, they do not select candidates and support their campaign with skewed “news”. Mere mortals do not know how a TV station can be a powerful political entity. The images above are only a sampling of those who are active Tea Party supporters. What is the antidote to the Tea Party? The ballot box. Vote democratic in the next elections!
Herman Cain, you say that black people have been “brainwashed” into not considering a conservative party candidate, like you. You say that you have received vitriol from us. Sir, what have blacks and latinos received from conservatives lately? The racists who oppress us and try to resurrect Jim Crow are conservatives, like yourself. The Republican Party has a small tent with little interest in low and middle-class blacks and latinos. Success is the price of admission. In Negro history it has been Democrats and Progressives who have fought and died for our freedoms, like the Right to Vote, fair housing, fair wages, etc.
Republican dominated state legislatures, the various Tea Parties and Republican governors, like Nikki Haley of South Carolina, have conspired to “rig” the 2012 Presidential Election by making it difficult for blacks and latinos to vote. They have passed laws that require PHOTO ID to vote which is a hardship for poor people. Governor Haley has promised personally to provide transportation to the 200,000 voters in South Carolina who have no PHOTO ID. I hope the media holds her feet to the fire and make her keep her promise. Yes, you Republicans are resurrecting “Jim Crow,” Mr. Cain. What you are doing may be legal but it’s dirty pool! If you are going to win, then win with honor. No, Mr. Cain, we have not been brainwashed. We just have open eyes! God bless the Democratic Party whose tent stretches from shore to shore!
09/28/11 I am in my second day of the Conrad Murray trial and I am amazed. I have had sympathy for Michael since he was a young boy. He was abused as a child and so was I. He could not be himself as a child and had an unhappy childhood…like me. His struggle with vitiligo must have been very difficult. To be brown-skinned and having to slowly watch the pigment leave his skin and to endure the pain. To begin looking white…or rather mottled. The testimony about what happened on June 25, 2009 is shocking. If what I heard is true, Dr. Murray is guilty of not providing Michael the “accepted standard of care.” It is inconceivable that Dr. Murray did not know he was treating someone with addiction. Apparently, he looked the other way for $150,000 a month. His immediate actions at the time of Michael’s death is appalling. Apparently, Dr. Murray, a cardiologist, did not know CPR. As Michel died his children were nearby in tears. I hope they were not scarred. Those outside of the courthouse who support Dr. Murray’s version of the truth are deluded or mis-guided.
I don’t know if Michael was a Christian or a Muslim. I pray for the salvation of his soul. Rest in peace, Michael Joseph Jackson! Though departed you still bring us joy!
