BE SURE TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,
“Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”
“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”
“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”
The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”
“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”
“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are — or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem.
You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”
COMMENT: You hear the political pundits say that President Obama´s Democratic Party will not do well during the upcoming election. It’s an easy call based on historical fact (the party in power always loses seats). A big reason according to a poll by the Pew Research Center is that MINORTIES tend to not vote in mid-term elections. Let’s change that
It’s clear that the Republican Party has no interest in helping the President fix the economy or anything else and if they regain power the country will be in far worse shape. We all know that the withering attacks that this President faces daily are really racially motivated. In spite of how the media couches their words we know that white (tea party) America does not believe he should be President under any circumstances.
The President has done many good things that have not been publicized and he deserves our support.
This could be the most important midterm of our generation, encourage your family and friends to participate; the party that got us into this mess are trying to compound what they did, do not allow this to happen. If the Democrats lose control of the Congress the Republicans will not help Obama to govern, thus he becomes a lame duck and the country will be headed over the cliff.
REMEMBER POLLS DO NOT VOTE PEOPLE DO!!!

Dr. Betty Price, wife of well-known television minister Apostle Dr. Fred Price of the Ever Increasing Faith Ministry, gives voice and a unique perspective to the topic of adultery in the church–through the personal stories of some pastors’ mistresses. Dr. Betty Price spoke candidly to ESSENCE.com on the taboo subject.
It was 20 years ago when I started receiving letters from women of various churches who were having illicit affairs with powerful married ministers. I was flabbergasted. Was this really happening in the church? I asked myself. Then my phone began ringing off the hook. I couldn’t understand why these women were reaching out to me. I think it was because they saw my husband, Dr. Fred K. Price, and his televised preachings and were captivated by his message.
Most recently I received two anonymous letters within a week apart. Both women shared their involvement with very high-profile men of God. As I read their letters I sensed their deep regret. They expressed how they never intended on being involved with a minister and each woman was desperately seeking a way out.

With the narrative of Larry the Loophole, we are given a basic overview of the tax loopholes that were put in place during the Bush Administration and the impact of these loopholes on the average American household. These are the same loopholes that have allowed the burden of infrastructure maintenance and upkeep , i.e. power generation and distribution, highways and bridges, state facilities and parks, etc, to fall upon the taxes collected from the average American. Ironically, the founding fathers never intended taxes to be collected on wages earned but on products we buy and land we owned. Larry provides a fundamental understanding of the overall impact of the loophole systems that are in place as well as insight into some of the practices that created the current financial crisis. Check-out http://www.warongreed.org for more links to provide help in understanding systems and practices that have been put in place that continue to expand the separation between the “Haves and the Have nots”.
Ironically, it is the Right-wing GOP that personifies this now famous phrase. The Lobbiest, Medical Industry Leaders and various leaders of the GOP will use smoke and mirrors to distort the “Average American’s” point of view while not restricting any aspect of the revenue generated by Health Care or the Medical industry.
