‘The American say…The American People want…The American People think, etc., etc.’


This is our President angry!
This is our President angry!

The hair on the back  of my neck goes up every time no good politicians get on TV and presume to talk for the American people…without substantiation.  How do our politicians and TV talking heads really know facts about the American people?  Polls, you say?  Well, if they form their statements from poll data, they should quote the relevant polls…like genius, Ezra Klein, does.  Speaker John Boehner is forever making statements:   “The American people” this and “The American people” that.  Someone should tell Rep. Boehner (R-OH) that his speaker title does not give him license to “speak” for the American people.  Perhaps he should read Wikipedia.  I remember the days when reporters talked to average Americans [like the “man on the street“] and broadcasted  the interviews on the evening news.  For all we know our politicians have a secret agenda with talking points and the media might have their own.  Somehow, yesterday, President Obama heard or sensed the call of the American people for him to get out front on the current scandals(?) and show that he is angry and the he is in charge and swiftly taking action. He bound to the podium yesterday and delivered his reassuring message.  I was so proud of him!  —GoodOleWoody

February Is Black History Month


Black History Month is a remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. Since 1976, it is celebrated annually in the United States of America and Canada in February and the United Kingdom in the month of October. In the U.S., Black History Month is also referred to as African-American History Month.

Black History Month actually started as Negro History Week in 1926.
The goal of Black History Week was to educate Blacks about their
cultural background, and instill in them a sense of pride in their race. [Source: Wikipedia]

Perhaps you are new to the celebration of afro-american history and culture.  I just discovered the ultimate source of all things about us and those who love us or, at least, find us interesting: THE GRIO, whose parent is NBC-Universal.  This colorful website is rich in content and is one which you will enjoy throughout the whole month of celebration.  And, don’t be a stranger here.  This year THE GRIO is proud to present “100 History Makers in the Making” which introduces us to black leaders who are making a difference in American society and just might make “the history books.”[sic] 🙂 I jest.  Their stories will feature largely in our history.  Don’t miss this look at today and peek into the future.
