GREENSBORO - Gunfire erupted in a Greensboro community Monday afternoon. About 4:30 p.m., Greensboro police were called to 815 Rugby St. in Ray Warren Homes, a Greensboro Housing Authority community. Police said bullets hit a couple of homes and windows were broken. No injuries or arrests were reported.

Barbara McIver was outside in her yard when she heard gunshots and saw a man shooting at another person from the corner of her building. "He was standing outside in my front yard shooting at another man," she said. She hurried to get her two granddaughters, ages 6 and 10, inside her home. "I will never let them play in the front yard again," she said. McIver said she often hears gunshots at night, but not during the day.

What If There Were No Black Folk?

Thanks to for this educational ("educational" IS NOT a bad word) tale below.

Check it out...


This is a story of a little boy named Theo, who woke up one morning and asked Mom
"What if there were no black people in the world?"

Well, Mom thought about that for a moment and then said, "Son, follow me around
today and let's just see what it would be like if there were no black people in the world.
Get dressed and we will get started."

Theo ran to his room to put on his clothes and shoes. But there were no shoes, and his
clothes were all wrinkled. He looked for the iron, but when reached for the ironing
board, it was no longer there. You see Sarah Boone, a Black woman, invented the
ironing board and
Jan E. Matzelinger, a Black man invented the shoe lasting machine.

"Oh well", Mom said, "Go and do your hair." Theo ran in his room to comb his hair, but
the comb was not there. You see, Walter Sammons, a Black man, invented the comb.
Theo decided to just brush his hair, but the brush was gone You see Lydia O. Newman,
a Black female invented the brush.

Well, he was a sight, no shoes, wrinkled clothes, hair a mess without the hair care
inventions of Madam C. J. Walker
, ...well, you get the picture. Mom told Theo,
"Lets do the chores around the house and then take a trip to the grocery store."

Theo's job was to sweep the floor. He swept and swept and swept. When he reached
for the dustpan, it was not there. You see LIoyd P. Ray, a Black man, invented the
So he swept his pile of dirt over in the corner and left it there. He then
decided to mop the floor, but the mop was gone. You see, Thomas W. Stewart, a
Black man, invented the mop.

Theo thought to himself, "I'm not having any luck." "Well, son," Mom said. "We should
wash the clothes and prepare a list for the grocery store. When he was finished, Theo
went to place the clothes in the dryer, but it was not there. You see, George T. Samon,
a Black man, invented the clothes dryer.
Theo got a pencil and some paper to prepare
the list for the market, but noticed that the pencil lead was broken as well, he was out of luck because John Love, a Black man, invented the pencil sharpener. He reached for a pen, but it was not there because William Purvis, a Black man, invented the fountain pen. As a matter of fact, Lee Burridge invented the type writing machine, and
W. A. Lavette, the printing press.

So they decided to head out to the market. Well, when Theo opened the door, he
noticed the grass was as high as he was tall. You see the lawnmower was invented
by John Burr, a Black man.

They made their way over to the car and found that it just wouldn't go. You see Robert
Spikes, a Black man, invented the automatic gear shift and Joseph Gammel invented the supercharge system for internal combustion engines.
They noticed that the few cars that were moving were running into each other and having wrecks because there were no traffic signals. You see, Garrett A. Morgan, a Black man, invented the traffic light.

Well, it was getting late, so they walked to the market, got their groceries and returned
home. Just when they were about to put away the milk, eggs and butter, they noticed
the refrigerator was gone. You see, John Standard, a Black man, invented the
So they put the food on the counter.

By this time, they noticed it was getting mighty cold. Theo went to turn up the heat and
what do you know, it was not there. You see, Alive Parker, a Black female,
invented the heating furnace.
Even in the summer time they would have been out
of luck, because Frederick Jones, a Black man, invented the air conditioner.
It was almost time for Theo's father to arrive home. He usually took the bus, but there
was no bus because its precursor was the electric trolley, invented by another Black
man, Elbert T. Robinson.
He usually took the elevator from his office on the 20th floor,
but there was no elevator because Alexander Miles, A Black man, invented the elevator. He usually dropped off the office mail at a nearby mailbox, but it no longer was there
because Phillip Downing, a Black man, invented the letter drop mailbox and William Barry invented the postmarking and canceling machine.

Theo sat at the kitchen table with his head in his hands. When his father arrived he
asked, "Why are you sitting in the dark?" Why?? Because Lewis Howard Latimer,
a Black man, invented the filament within the light bulb.

Theo quickly learned what it would be like if there were no Black people in the world.
Not to mention if he were ever sick and needed blood. Charles Drew, a Black scientist,
found a way to preserve and store blood, which led to his starting the world's first blood bank.

And what if a family member had to have heart surgery. This would not have been
possible without Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, a Black doctor, who performed first open
heart surgery.

So if you ever wonder, like Theo, where we would be without Blacks? Well, it's pretty
plain to see, we could very well still be in the dark!!!

Court Strikes Down Bush Grab for Power...

Here's some good news on the homefront.

Court Strikes Down Bush Grab for Power
John F. McManus
JBSWednesday June 13, 2007

Claiming unusual authority to designate and hold individuals who are thought to be "enemy combatants," the Bush administration exercised power that has unnerved many constitutional scholars. Now a federal appeals court has ruled that such power exceeds the bounds of the Constitution.

Follow this link to the source article: "Judges Say U.S. Can't Hold Man as "Combatant"

On June 11th, a three-judge panel in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2 to 1 that the President does not have power to declare a civilian living in the United States an "enemy combatant" and turn him over to the military for indefinite incarceration. The case involves Ali al-Marri, a resident of Qatar, who is suspected of being a close associate of both Osama bin Laden and Khalid Mohammed, the brains behind the 9/11 attack. In 2001 while living in Illinois, he was arrested for credit card fraud and lying to government agents. About to be tried on those charges in 2003, he was grabbed by military authorities and sent to a military prison where he has been held for four years without any charges being placed against him.

The federal panel did not declare him innocent and did not order him to be set free. It said simply that Mr. Bush had overstepped his authority. In the name of fighting a "war on terror," the President had improperly assumed power to declare a person an "enemy combatant" and throw him into a military prison. Al-Marri's legal team sued in 2005 and gained the ruling just announced.

Writing for the majority, Judge Diana Gribbon Motz, a Clinton appointee, stated, "To sanction such presidential authority to order the military to seize and indefinitely detain civilians, even if the president calls them 'enemy combatants,' would have disastrous consequences for the Constitution — and the country. We refuse to recognize this claim for power." But the ruling also said that the government may charge al-Marri with a crime, deport him, or hold him as a material witness in connection with other cases. All of this, however, must be done in a civilian court.

President Bush believes he holds power inherently to designate al-Marri and others as combatants and have the military incarcerate them. The court disagreed, and the Justice Department immediately announced plans to appeal the decision. The matter may wind its way up to the Supreme Court. The ruling, however, was considered by White House critics as another setback for the President.

Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'...

Before you read this, I have to tell you something:

No, it is NOT a joke. It actually happened.


Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'
Hank Plante / CBS 5 June 12, 2007

A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting. Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb."

Edward Hammond, of Berkeley's Sunshine Project, had used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force's Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.
As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."

The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.

"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents. "The notion was that a chemical that would probably be pleasant in the human body in low quantities could be identified, and by virtue of either breathing or having their skin exposed to this chemical, the notion was that soliders would become gay," explained Hammond. The Pentagon told CBS 5 that the proposal was made by the Air Force in 1994. "The Department of Defense is committed to identifying, researching and developing non-lethal weapons that will support our men and women in uniform," said a DOD spokesperson, who indicated that the "gay bomb" idea was quickly dismissed. However, Hammond said the government records he obtained suggest the military gave the plan much stronger consideration than it has acknowledged.

"The truth of the matter is it would have never come to my attention if it was dismissed at the time it was proposed," he said. "In fact, the Pentagon has used it repeatedly and subsequently in an effort to promote non-lethal weapons, and in fact they submitted it to the highest scientific review body in the country for them to consider." Military officials insisted Friday to CBS 5 that they are not currently working on any such idea and that the past plan was abandoned. Gay community leaders in California said Friday that they found the notion of a "gay bomb" both offensive and almost laughable at the same time.

"Throughout history we have had so many brave men and women who are gay and lesbian serving the military with distinction," said Geoff Kors of Equality California. "So, it's just offensive that they think by turning people gay that the other military would be incapable of doing their job. And its absurd because there's so much medical data that shows that sexual orientation is immutable and cannot be changed."


Now, I have official heard of EVERYTHING...

Repeal Second Amendment...

I had to post this when I first read about it.

People are bringing up ways to screw over The Constitution (more than they have already).

Never give up your guns!

Repeal Second Amendment, Analyst Advises
Nathan Burchfiel,
Tuesday June 12, 2007

The Second Amendment guarantees the right of an individual to own guns and for that reason should be repealed, according to a legal affairs analyst who opposes gun ownership.

"The Second Amendment is one of the clearest statements of right in the Constitution," Benjamin Wittes, a guest scholar at the center-left Brookings Institution, acknowledged in a discussion Monday. "We've had decades of sort of intellectual gymnastics to try to make those words not mean what they say."

Wittes, who said he has "no particular enthusiasm for the idea of a gun culture," said that rather than try to limit gun ownership through regulation that potentially violates the Second Amendment, opponents of gun ownership should set their sights on repealing the amendment altogether.

"Rather than debating the meaning of the Second Amendment, I think the appropriate debate is whether we want a Second Amendment," Wittes said. He conceded, however, that the political likelihood of getting the amendment repealed is "pretty limited."

Wittes said the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms meant more when it was crafted more than 200 years ago than it does today. Modern society is "much more ambivalent than they [the founders] were about whether gun ownership really is fundamental to liberty," he said.

"One of the things that they believed was that the right of states to organize militias, and therefore individuals to be armed, was necessary to protect the liberty of those states against the federal government," Wittes said. "This is something we don't really believe as a society anymore."

But challenging the Second Amendment on the basis that society's circumstances have changed since the drafting would similarly open up to question all other constitutional rights, according to Georgetown University law professor Randy Barnett, who also participated in Monday's discussion.

"The techniques that are used to show that the Second Amendment really doesn't have any contemporary relevance are absolutely available to anybody who wants to show that aspects of the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment and the Fifth Amendment have no contemporary relevance," he said.

Citing the Fourth Amendment, which protects "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," Barnett argued, "Sure it was fine that persons should be secure in their papers and effects back in the old days when there wasn't a danger of terrorism and mass murder."

But advocates of warrantless searches could make an "appeal to changing circumstances," on the basis that the Fourth Amendment is "archaic [and] we don't need it anymore," he added.

Barnett recommended that gun control advocates "not favor methods of interpretation [to criticize the legitimacy of the Second Amendment] that you wouldn't want to put in the hands of political opponents."

This sh*t is crazy!!

Once you get rid of guns (for protection), then it's REALLY ON!

Man Faces 7 Years Sentence under "Wiretapping Law" for Filming Police...

This crap is getting UNREAL!

Read below about how having a vidoe camera can possibly send you to PRISON!


Man Faces 7 Year Sentence Under "Wiretapping Law" For Filming Police
OK for police and government to film and wiretap US citizens though
Prison Planet June 12, 2007 Steve Watson

A man has been charged in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with filming police officers during a routine traffic stop and faces up to seven years in prison for "wiretapping".

Brian D. Kelly is charged under a state law that bars the intentional interception or recording of anyone's oral conversation without their consent, reports the Patriot News . The criminal case relates to the sound, not the pictures, that his camera picked up. His camera and film were seized by police during the May 24 stop, he said, and he spent 26 hours in Cumberland County Prison until his mother posted her house as security for his $2,500 bail. Police also took film from his pockets that wasn't related to the traffic stop, he said.
Kelly, just 18 years old, is obviously extremely scared and has apologized profusely for not knowing the law. He has sought the help of the ACLU in the case.

The charge however is bogus because the law is not adhered to by police officers themselves. An exception to the wiretapping law allows police to film people during traffic stops. In addition police routinely carry microphones that are wired up to their vehicles to record conversations without the knowledge of anyone whom they stop or question. This is not the first time this has happened either. Last year a North Middleton Twp. man was charged in a street racing case that involved a wiretapping charge. Police claimed the man ordered associates to tape police breaking up an illegal race after officers told him to turn off their cameras.

Furthermore, just last month a 48-year-old man from Dover, New Hampshire was arrested for "wiretapping" for allegedly recording police while they were investigating him for driving while intoxicated. In addition we have previously covered stories where camera crews have been threatened with arrest for filming peaceful demonstrations, and where cops have been caught stealing protestor's cameras . Filming in public is a right every American citizen has under the first amendment, which is why the cops in the case above had to steal the camera and the footage, because there was no legal basis to seize it.
It seems that filming and photographing is now deemed to be a threat per se. Pick from any number of stories archived at example:

In Seattle, police banned a photography student from a public park. He was taking photographs of a bridge for a homework assignment. The officers who ban him from the park do so without the knowledge of park officials and have no authority to do so.

In Texas a man was first threatened by neighbors and then reportedly accosted and sprayed with pepper spray by police. He was walking around his neighborhood, filming with his new video camera.

In New York, National Press Photographers Association members staged a protest in the New York subway system to bring attention to a proposed law to ban photography in the subway system.

In Philadelphia a magazine photographer was detained and questioned after a parade for taking architectural shots while waiting for a subway train.

In Harrisburg, PA a man was swarmed by 8 Police and accused of being a member of Al-Qaeda after shooting pictures of his new car under a bridge.

We have recently exposed how some police now do not understand that they are violating the rights of individuals .

In other cases we have witnessed police pull out pocket constitutions from cars and question their legality. In addition we have a government which has been mired in scandal for wiretapping US citizens without warrant, yet when the tables are turned US citizens face the full wrath of the corrupt judicial system. Though clearly Brian D. Kelly had no criminal intent and is likely to escape with just a fine, the case sets a dangerous precedent. US citizens can be arrested and charged for filming on public streets.

It also sets the precedent that those who enforce the law are also above the law.


Police State

Are you gonna disagree with me?

When are people gonna WAKE THE HELL UP?!

In order for us to be FREE in America, we need to start standing up to this sort of crap!

Am I living in Nazi Germany?
