And 54E south of 54 including Publix and beyond will be annexed in, too. Already in the works.
Who treated her when she fell at home during the Benghazi hearings was found dead? I think I finally got it. She does not need SS protection from us. The other way around is how it should be.
Better news than that coming to you!! Did you do a happy dance? None of my business, I know.
She did plenty of that alright.
Thanks for the cmts---fact is, I was on my last vietnam tour and Frau Gym was living in England with her parents---Red Cross brought me the news!
tonight in 90 minutes than Trump has done in the last year and a half. Wow, she just could not come up with answers for her behavior, or should I say, lack of behaviour in her taxpayer paid career.
Let the complaints begin in 3....2....1.
I guess hoping that our "fair and balanced" minded community can get fully behind this effort (along with the downtown Fayetteville re-develoment iniative) is asking a bit to much. Expected as much.
Regardless, I love it (Pinewood Studios, Pinewood Forrest) and all that is going on over there. And so do a number of my collegues in the creative industry. Living less than 2 miles from the development and being able to get work from there both directly and indirectly has been a sustained blessing. I am thankful for the business(s). The diverse nature of "Live-Create-Play" concept is strange and troublesome to some, but to others its a welcomed opportunity for growth, prospertity and lifestyle.
It is so nice to hear successful stories such as you present. I know there are many, many more out there. We too often focus on the negative experiences. I know you love your big brother. Congratulations!
I know of one such couple. My best friend, a man I call my big brother, married a wonderful woman who had a son and was raising him herself with little help from her ex-husband. Vernon, my big brother, stepped in and adopted him shortly after they were married. He's a wonderful father figure for Israel and has done so much to teach him about being a young man and the responsibilities that will be expected of him. His example is a light to all who are in darkness.
Well, happy birthday to your son and I just bet you were over the moon 45 years ago tonight. I bet your wife was happy, happy, happy, too! Here's to 45 more for you all!!!!
It's called Societal Collapse and has been on the scene--in some volume, for some time. I believe it has its beginning in late childhood & early teenhood. But I'm certainly no expert on societal behaviour. I only grieve for the victims, who DO have the capability to lift themselves out of that despair. And I write this today feeling the weight of experience as our Son, the product of a 47 1/2 year union, turned 45 today!
It should start in the black community, with their women. This country been mimicing the black community for decades - in song, dance, dress, speech, sports play and unfortunately, gang banging, thuggery and debauchery. More so for the youth and teen-agers, which are the ones who have to be bent the other way with better role play - beginning with their Mommas..
Jesse you got it nailed. It is not a black thing (although it is worse in the black community) it seems to have started in the 90's with white families too. My sister is 16 years younger than I and has 2 out of wedlock kids but baby daddy #2 is responsible and treats both as his own and they live together in a family unit. One of her friends got knocked up at 17 and Catholic Charities gave her an apartment and helped, then came baby #2 and then came baby #3 and Catholic Charities said our help for you is over..Fortunately her and baby Daddy for the 3 got hitched but my sister boycotted the fancy wedding because she stated that she could not attend because they were still getting government help and should have used the money for a home.
There are few financials benefits to marriage since the tax code punishes married folks and now generally insurance can be shared with "householders". I can name dozens of family and friends whose kids have kids and most never marry or even live together.
JJ: Given your position on Amend 1, can we assume you are not voting for any of the candidates for FC BOE--which will be virtually useless if Amend passes.
JJ, Ginga, Brewster, and Husband, I think you are correct that African-Americans could use a strong role model who values and emphasizes the marital relationship and two-parent rearing of children as well as overcoming adversity and grasping the American dream instead of merely looking for a handout. It would be nice to identify a black man who did not use his absent father as an excuse for indolence and crime. Perhaps someone who responded to adversity by attending an Ivy League college and graduate school. A black man who married and, together with his wife, raised his children with no hint of infidelity or sexual scandal. He could even be a Nobel laureate.
I think we can all agree that regardless of our political differences with such a role model, we would praise him for his strong ties to his family and laud him for the example he lives for other African-Americans.
I only wish we could find such an accomplished couple.
I too get where you are coming from, and don;t completely disagree, but I DO object to the BLACK thingy, this is NOT a Black issue, I have 11 Cousins (none are Black) of that 11 TWO and ONLY two did not procreate prior to Marriage, in fact here's the Numbers 1 made 10 babies (never got married) 1 had 1 got married but quickly divorced, 1 made 3; 1 made 5 got married after the 5th one and married that one's momma, has no idea about the other 4; 1 has 2 from different daddies that were never around' , 1 had 4 named 6 people that could be daddy; I could go one but ya get the point now here's the truth about this, of these 9 cousins that made all these LIFE's exactly NONE have a Job (a couple work under the table)
All of this is to say, YES Blacks have in issue with no daddy families, but the issue is AMERICA has a CRISIS with No Daddy Families, and to a lesser extent No Momma Families. People have been making babies since the beginning of time when they shouldn't but I can find ON time in recorded History where they are PAID to do so,,,(with the exception of Slave Trading Days)
Oh and for the record I'm adopted so all these Cousins are NOT Blood related (lol)
WARNING !!! Take a Deep Breathe, and Read my WHOLE post, VOTE YES on Amendment 1, I'll say that again VOTE YES , ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Once this scam fails and fails miserably and even during the failing process Mothers and Fathers (actual ones not the procreating ones) will FINALLY SEE what Government Schools are and MIGHT decides their Child will be better served AWAY from Common Core, Condoms on Banana 2nd grade Classes, Boy's in the Girls Locker room Government schools, If we vote this down ALL we are doing is putting a band-aid on a severed Artery,,,Sometimes ya HAVE TO let something die Government Schools Need to die and this Amendment is the scalpel to this ending
Regardless the topic/subject, I am always leery of Constitutional Amendments.
African-American ministers were called to the basement of the Governor's mansion. Amendment 1 - Food For Thought! For all of those folks who are sitting on the fence regarding their vote on Amendment 1, I have a link: https://dianeravitch.net/category/alec/ Rev. Chester Ellis, Pastor of St. Paul Missionary Baptist church in Savannah, was one of 29 African American ministers who were invited to the basement of the Governor's mansion to hear Governor Deal's sales pitch on why they should get their congreations to vote "Yes" on Amendment 1. In an article tltled "Georgia: Governor Deal to African-American Ministers: "Trust Me," Rev. Ellis said that Gov. Deal started his pitch with "I need your help." Rev. Ellis went on to say, "But we left with more questions than we had answers. It truly is a takeover, and one whose extent is clear to very few voters." Rev. Ellis tells it better than I ever could. Please follow the link and read his account of what transpired.
I truly understanding the reasoning behind everything you and Husband have said. I just think the load is rather lopsided, and therefore the process of change is extremely slow.
IF the Patriots aren't cheating, they aren't trying. Same rule applies for many SEC Schools. :)
I foresee underground parking and private elevators for this boutique hotel. No way will I walk in through the front door at the village square with all the papparazzi trying to take my photo.
The man experiement has failed. Focus on the women, to raise their standards, to stop the welfare system, to require active dads. Been like that through the ages - the women have had the power for how the future generations are set up. After all, we all know what the focus of men are.
"Village Square?" I don't see anything that even remotely looks like a "Village Square." Glass walled boutique hotels are the anchoring factors to a "Village Square?" Dan can tell his cronies to drop the sales pitch. The people of Fayette County aren't that gullible!
The women hold the power. If they are taught to hold higher standards and only procreate with real men who are there to provide and support both thier wife and thier offspring, then the world would be a better place.
