"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?"

For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.

2008-05-20T07:31:00.000-04:00

Field Negro:

Recall about 4 weeks ago we debated the national economy? Specifically our long term debt position? I told the "Field Negroes" that the Big 3 entitlements pose the biggest economic threat to the nation in the long term?

I recall that many pushed back and claimed that the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX was the net largest drain on our nation's finances.

Here is what the USA Today has to say about it all:

Taxpayers' bill leaps by trillions

The federal government's long-term financial obligations grew by $2.5 trillion last year, a reflection of the mushrooming cost of Medicare and Social Security benefits as more baby boomers reach retirement.

That's double the red ink of a year earlier.

Taxpayers are on the hook for a record $57.3 trillion in federal liabilities to cover the lifetime benefits of everyone eligible for Medicare, Social Security and other government programs, a USA TODAY analysis found. That's nearly $500,000 per household.

When obligations of state and local governments are added, the total rises to $61.7 trillion, or $531,472 per household. That is more than four times what Americans owe in personal debt such as mortgages.

The $2.5 trillion in federal liabilities dwarfs the $162 billion the government officially announced as last year's deficit, down from $248 billion a year earlier.

Big new liabilities taken on in 2007:

• Medicare: $1.2 trillion.

• Social Security: $900 billion.

• Civil servant retirement: $106 billion.

• Veteran benefits: $34 billion.

The multitrillion-dollar loss is a more meaningful financial number than the official deficit, says Tom Allen, chairman of the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board, which helps set federal accounting rules.

Medicare has an unfunded liability of $30.4 trillion.

That means, in addition to paying all future Medicare taxes, the government needs $30.4 trillion set aside in an interest-earning account to pay benefits promised to existing taxpayers and beneficiaries. The amount is sure to rise when the oldest of 79 million baby boomers — 62 this year — reach 65 and become eligible.


Just insuring that your readers are the most "read" and up to date individuals on the Net.

[quote]They were out of touch with the younger generation, and they closed ranks and refused to listen to other voices or let anyone else take an active role in the organization's direction.[/quote]

Field-Negro:

Of course it should come as no surprise to you that I am no fan of the NAACP 2008 edition.

While they have elected a new president, Julian Bond - the man who has done more measurable harm to the organization than anyone else who I can think of - REMAINS atop the organization.

With the organization's membership in the Leadership Council On Civil Rights - it has abandoned its roots in the basements of Black churches and have instead become just another left wing activist organizations under the umbrella that the LCCR provides them cover. For the first time in the organization's history they took a position on abortion - claiming it to be an important "civil right" for Black women. Margaret Sanger could not be prouder of today's organization.

It is interesting that you and others point to the electronic presence of this new president per development of the syndication web site of the National Newspaper's Association.

It is puzzling regarding how as one who follows the death and violence on the STREETS of Philadelphia and other places where African-Americans frequent around the nation - the focus is instead of this man's keyboard skills. What more than these subjects are impacting the ADVANCEMENT of Colored people than the issues that the NAACP is inept and evasive in dealing directly with?

In my view the NAACP is nothing more than the ground forces for the Democratic party into the Black community where no White Democrat dare tread by himself.

Hi Kevin,hope all is well my brother, and it is nice to hear from you.

Let us know how things work out with Mr. Jealous.

BTW,I am still waiting for that legal work we discussed to come my way;)

2008-05-19T15:29:00.000-04:00

We can argue about how 'unfair' the drug laws are and stay with the Black people are victims of whitey meme but what needs to be addressed is the fact that a lot of Black people are committing crimes. Some people need to be locked up! Life is hard and we don't always make the best choices but I'm not willing to experiment with my safety and life on the premise that someone was sent to jail for a longer time than necessary. I KNOW historically many trumped up charges have been levied against innocent people, but some of those 'innocent' people were innocent of that particular crime they were sent to jail for NOT innocent of being a criminal or operating from a criminal mindset.

I'm not saying Blacks are committing crimes more than other ethnic groups or the level of crime deserves special punishment either. I also don't want a huge net cast to unfairly prosecute people. Then we'd have a police state with more people being arrested and the Prison Industrial Complex pumping out harder "prison for profit". There needs to be across the board reform.

But since my family has personally experienced that crime statistic of Black man between certain age being murdered - in my case it was my 21-year old brother who worked at a bank and was a junior in college hanging out with friends on the porch DOING NOTHING but being Black. Some guy just decided to open fire on a bunch of people because he had nothing better to do that day and still walks free due to insufficient evidence, but has a rap sheet, I say lock them up before they are free to commit a worse crime than the one they may currently be charged for because it might be YOU that gets to benefit from 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances.

2008-05-19T11:09:00.000-04:00

Field, Thank you for the shout-out bruh... I really enjoyed meeting you and I look forward to working with you in the Future... (We can never have too many strong and competant attorneys...

And Lola, I'm going to work my way off of your list. (We're gonna pay-pal you a better car :-) Rock & Field will lead the effort)

But all jokes aside, I will get an opportunity to meet and talk with the new President Ben Jealous this Thursday. In fact, we'll be attending a Leadership conference together all weekend, and I plan to listen to his thoughts and plans for the organization and also to share my vision with him. I'll let you all know how it turns out...

2008-05-19T09:24:00.000-04:00

I second Field's comments about Kevin. I haven't met him but like what he's trying to do. I hope the board members listen and heed.

"What do they do besides the Image Awards?" sjp.

Has it really come to this for the NAACP? This is all they seem to be known for these days.

And la~msvis...you are right about the female issues, they don't seem to have any they support. In fact, they were on the wrong side of that "Dunbar Village" mess.

Sorry field, I stopped taking the NAACM seriously when I realized they don't seem to have the black female's interest at heart.

2008-05-18T22:50:00.000-04:00

I'd like for them to focus on available apprenticeship for just out of high school students in blue collar jobs such and carpentry, plumbing, etc... Build the base that cares about their neighborhood. I'm not talking about school even. They way it used to be older people used youngsters to get a job done, and the guys learned something from it. Really it's always been done this way. Beats most of the fast food/ throwing boxes/ weed eating options. Soon they can start their own small business. Just my 2 cents. Advancement doesn't have to focus on lawsuits and defending criminals. Most African Americans don't need that anyway.

2008-05-18T21:33:00.000-04:00

I think the NAACP should return to its roots, challenge laws that unjustly effect citizens. Can we start challenging the constitutionality of the drug laws. Be involved in providing lawyers where ones can not afford it and not get caught up in who is deserving. To try to do better than the public defenders. Or be at least to provide legal expertise in difficult cases. Be involved in organizing old and new media so the word can get out and on time with veracity.

Need to focus on the justice system.

Why are you bad mouthing the President of the Philly Chapter Field? Did he exhibit House Negro behavior?

:)

But great post. And I started to be "Jealous" of Mr. Jealous. But I don't have to be. He's a role model for young guys like me with no hope for the future because the economy sucks. Aw damn! I'm depressed again. Can anybody give me an internet hug?

2008-05-18T19:35:00.000-04:00

Field:

I think it is wonderful news that they selected new blood into the organization. The time has come to make new changes and breath new life into an aging organization. I attended a NAACP dinner in the Newark, NJ branch a few years ago celebrating its 90th year as a branch, and have to say that there weren't many people under the age of 40. In fact, I liking the event as a senior citizen convention, and there is nothing like sitting at the table with a group of folk who need to be in bed by 9:30. The organization has lost its connection to the younger generation. You have a generation that does not relate to the previous as their experience are different, and the organization has to address those concerns as well.

However, the younger generation needs to be understanding of the older generation, come together, and build a bridge. The NAACP is not a perfect organization, but has made some major contributions.

By the way, if anyone is living in the New York area, i recommend seeing the play "Thurgood," with Laurence Fishburne. I saw it this afternoon, and it's a very good play with a wonderful performance by Fishburne. There is also a new biography about Ida B. Wells entitled, "Ida: A Sword Among Lions" by Paula J. Giddings. I think it's one of the first biography about Wells, or perhaps it is the first. Yes, Field, I am a bit of a nerd with an interest in learning and reading about history.

2008-05-18T18:13:00.000-04:00

Julian Bonds likes to hire people that will do what he says and when they don't they are forced out. I don't see anything changing while he's in that position.

2008-05-18T17:37:00.000-04:00

..No one asked this average white's guy's opinion, and it's probably not worth much, for obvious reasons, but from this side, it would appear that the NAACP is out of date, and that a new paradigm should replace it, with multi-factoral components, funding, and technology...I believe athletes and entertainers could be extremely helpful as leaders in this area, so long as they are willing to work at the task diligently, really focus on the issues, and stay away from "Pop" types stereotypes and myths ( e.g., O.J is innocent, the U. S. Govt. invented AIDS, no man was ever on the nmoon, etc.)

2008-05-18T17:34:00.000-04:00

field: Kevin sounds cool. And i'm sorry if I sound repetitive, but the NAACP's board needs to change. They keep changing figureheads, when the real problem is the board. And it's not just its huge numbers. What the real problems seems to be, and the real infighting seems to be about, is that it can't decide if it wants to be an advocacy organization (especially legally) or a social service organization and get some non-profit crumbs from white funders ala Urban League.

It's the confusion in terms of mission that causes problems with various branches and that has gotten them in bad shape financially.

If Mr. Jealous should fail, I don't think the black community will be too hard on him. Sadly, the word has gotten around that it's not a particular figurehead but the NAACP's board that's the problem.

Whazzup aapp? I am sure that will be a nice show with Kevin. Tell him hi for me.

"Maybe the members of Color of Change and other groups should join the NAACP and change it from the inside"

kid, joining is one thing, having some input is quite another. These folks tend to be very protective of their power and influence.
