Walgreens Shooting Suspect Dead of Self-Inflicted Gunshot

Just one day after Chicago's Police Superintendent Garry McCarty boasted of no murders in a 24 hour period.

At 12:01a.m. next day,the murders began with a vengence!

A 22 year old security guard at Walgreens was gunned down. Why is unknown.

Another man, who police believed to be the suspect in the Walgreens case was also found dead in an alley, apparently from a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

A third body was found in Evanston, that is somehow related to the other two murders. The victim was a 15 year old boy from Skokie was found dead from a gunshot wound.

So...Mr. McCarthy, please keep quiet - don't say anything else.

If Chicago has a peaceful year, JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP!

Welfare in the Spotlight in this Election – the Myths and the Truth

I'm gonna piggyback from a blog I posted earlier about the misconceptions of "Black Americans" and the Welfare system.

Newt Gingrich stated that since President Obama has been in office that there are more Americans on welfare than ever before with the implication once again that Blacks makeup the majority of the welfare rolls.
Black folks cried foul and he backpeddled and said Mr. President was "the most successful food stamp president in history". Yeah, Newt, that's better.

Rick Santorum another Republican candidate, who if he had his way, black folks would still be in shackles and all Hispanics would be put out of the country, stated that he wants "Black Americans" to stop taking free money from taxpayers and get a job. The implications was that this money was being taken from hard working white folks.
This dumb ass statement was made during a speech recently in Iowa.

So for those that may have missed the boat on the facts about welfare, let's refresh...

Starting with Food Stamps recipients, there were 34% Whites, 22% Blacks and 16% Hispanics counted as welfare recipients in 2011.

Under the Temporary Assistance For Needy Families, also known as TANF, where recipients are given given cash assistance, as of 2009: 33% Blacks, 31% Whites and 29% Hispanics received help.

Keep in mind that all this misfortune happened during the Bush era. The rise in all assistance started then, President Obama happened to inherit this bullshit.

So what has Mr. President done since then you ask?

For the 5 million Americans that were receiving assistance. Subtract 1.9 million of the inheritance that the President received.

White America should be pissed that Newt and Santorum are playing the same race game.
Bring race into the mix as a smoke screen, and I'll forget the fact that Congress fucked me again.

I'll forget that Republicans keep giving the rich taxbreaks.

I'll forget that I, and you, bailed out the banking industry and the banking heads kept their bonuses, raises and salary.

I'll forget that most good paying jobs are now gone, because those jobs are now in other countries where they don't pay the worker shit and employees don't have insurance, holiday pay, or raises.

Now that's a smoke screen for your asses!

Just from looking at television, it seems the folks in Iowa and South Carolina are falling for the ole okedoke again.

Jobs vanished long before Mr. Obama even ran for President. In fact, it has been a hallmark of Republican sponsored corporate bill breaks for more than 20 years!

Americans of all races, don't blame Mr. President, blame yourselves for falling for the same shit every election.

Denum Ellarby Refused Communion Because He Has Down Syndrome, Parents Say

Good ole church. I tell you, if not for faith where would a person be? Obviously not in the good hands of the Diocese of Leeds.

Denum Ellarby a practicing Catholic, son, wasn't allowed to take first communion because he has Downs Syndrome.
Their reason? Because her son, in their words, "lacks the concentration to prepare for communion". What the fuck does that mean?

The issue that he has a disabilty means he may not grasp a concept easily or maybe SURPRISE he will.

Who cares if he lacks concentration.

Who cares if he doesn't understand the Catholic faith or practices.

The point is his mother is a Catholic, she knows as a part of tradition what taking first communion means.

Let's take it further....should babies not be baptized because they can't "grasp" what that tradition's concept?

Unfortunate for the Denum family, the Catholic church could care less.

The Diocese of Leeds states that the Denum family does not particpate in regular life of the church, nor did they prepare for first communion properly.

According to who? Did the church monitor the Denum family's comings and goings from church?

The Diocese of Leeds wants to work with the family and as the child grows, says they will work with the Denum family to help the child succeed in life.

What does it matter? A mother wants her son to experience first communion.
What I take from this as usual the arrogance of the church.

Turning their nose up at a kid the church assumes doesn't understand. Maybe he understands more than they do about the pure unconditional love of God.

They can't forgive a family that doesn't practice faith on a regular basis, but we can forgive and have faith in the molesters that are preaching the word.
