The Speech That Will Live Forever

January 17th, 2010

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the […] Continue Reading…

More Than A Day Off

January 14th, 2010

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a United States holiday marking the birthdate of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., observed on the third Monday of January each year, around the time of King’s birthday, January 15. It is one of four United States federal holidays to commemorate an individual person.

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. He was assassinated in 1968.

I’m sure some people will take this coming monday off without thinking about why they have a paid vacation.  Others may know, […] Continue Reading…

Apple Inadvertantly Provides Evidence of Tablet Mac

January 14th, 2010

I wanted to take a small break from the political bashing to talk about technology.  At the recently ended Consumer Technology Show (CES) two technologies received plenty of buzz: 3D televisions and tablet computers.  Tablet computers have been around for quite a while, but their price and usefulness made them all but useless, until Apple changed the game before it changed the game.  Apple has a rumored event taking place on the 27th of January where it will will unveil a rumored tablet Mac: the iSlate.  Yes, a rumor of a rumor has the computer industry scrambling.

Several computer companies […] Continue Reading…

Leno More Powerful Than The Tonight Show

January 12th, 2010

The Tonight Show is 55-years-old, but it must not be more important to NBC than Jay Leno is.  After a 5-month expirement that fell flat, Leno’s new show is set to return to late night.

“On Sunday, NBC confirmed what was Hollywood’s hottest rumor all weekend: The network is dropping The Jay Leno Show from its prime-time lineup after his Feb. 11 show. The former Tonight Show host will return to late night on March 1, after NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics, in a half-hour format in his old perch at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT. The Tonight Show, now hosted […] Continue Reading…

Ex-Governor Blagojevich: “I’m Blacker Than Obama”

January 11th, 2010

Yeah, the ousted Illinois governor boldly said this in an interview with Esquire magazine (February 2010 issue).  In this interview, Ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich states the following:

“What the  _____?  Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter…..I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.”

What????!!!!  Okay, so now I understand.  A Black person’s level of “Blackness” is based on where they live (or have lived) AND if they shine shoes (or have ever shined shoes).  Hmmmm.  I guess […] Continue Reading…

WordPlay Wednesday

January 6th, 2010

Happy Wednesday everyone and happy new year!  Well, by now, you know what 7DayBuzz does on Wednesdays — yep Wordplay Wednesday!

Here are the newsworthy topics.  Remember, try to keep your comments to 5 words and…….have fun!

Tiger Woods.  Why?  What?  How?
What is your opinion on President Obama’s response to the failed terrorist attack on Christmas in comparison to (former, it feels good to say) President Bush’s response to 9/11?
Should we have health care reform or leave things the way they are?  It is easy to criticize what is on the table without offering an alternate solution so this is more […] Continue Reading…

Piling On the Criticism

January 5th, 2010

Happy New Year!

A lot is going on and one thing is for sure: a ton of energy is being spent on bashing President Obama.  One thing I find interesting about the whole thing is that some people say Bush was bashed more while some say Obama is bashed more.  Some say Obama critics are racially motivated and some say it is politically motivated.  When you think about it, the claim of racial motivation was never mentioned about Bush’s critics, but then again race wasn’t an issue with him.

Honestly, I think race has become an issue because 1) it rubs […] Continue Reading…

Ideas For Change

December 23rd, 2009

I received an email that may be old, but it was new to me.  Norma White is a lady from Texas who wrote a guest column proposing the following changes:

Limit Congress from serving more than two terms.  That is all that presidents are allowed.
Stop Congress from voting on their own raises.  How did that ever get started?
Stop paying lawmakers’ high-priced insurance premiums.  After all, they are only part-time employees.  They might pass some law changes on the insurance companies, if they had to find one.
Stop paying lawmakers their full salary after serving just one term, or at retirement.  We […] Continue Reading…
