ANDY ROONEY & RELIGIOUS PRACTICES

Folks, this is the year we RE-TAKE CANADA and AMERICA

Andy Rooney says:

I don’t believe in Santa Claus, but I’m not going to sue somebody for
singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don’t agree with Darwin , but I
didn’t go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his
Theory of Evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because
someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what’s the big
deal? It’s not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts.
They’re just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant
safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it’s a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America and Canada , a country
founded on Christian principles. According to our very own phone book,
Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1. So what
would you expect — somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish
prayer.

If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim
prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone
pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn’t be offended. It wouldn’t bother me one bit.
When in Rome …..

But what about the atheists? … another argument.

What about them? Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We’re not going to
pass the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that’s asking
too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit
the concession stand. Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell
thousands what they can and cannot do. I don’t think a short prayer at a
football game is going to shake the world’s foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our
courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us
to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep. Our Bible tells us
to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are
telling us to cease praying.

God, help us. And if that last sentence offends you, well, just sue me.

The silent majority has been silent too long. It’s time we tell that one
or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn’t
care what they want. It is time that the majority rules! It’s time we
tell them, “You don’t have to pray; you don’t have to say the Pledge of
Allegiance; you don’t have to believe in God or attend services that honor
Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you
are no longer going to take our rights away. We are fighting back, and we
WILL WIN!”

God bless us one and all…Especially those who denounce Him, God bless
America and Canada, despite all our faults We are still the greatest
nation of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect
our right to pray and worship God.

Let’s make 2010 the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back
as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces
come home from all the wars.

Keep looking up.< /B>

If you agree with this, please pass it on.

RESPECT !

What is the price that you require for respect? Do you ask for it or do you demand respect? If you feel that you are being disrespected do you voice your opinion? Do you feel that women are being disrespected more and more? Well if you answered “yes”, to the last question you are not alone in your thinking.

Let’s take a look at some of the disrespectful things men do on a regular basis to women and around women. Women are not canines so why do they accept men referring to them as female canines. This practice is done in front of them, in talking about them, on recordings made by men and some women. This word is demeaning, and women should voice their displeasure in being referred to as such. If you don’t know what I am referring to, the word is, “bitch”. Wikipedia defines the word in literally, non-slang use, bitch is a term for female canines, particularly amongst dog breeders. It is also a common English profanity for a woman that typically carries denigrating or misogynistic overtones—such as resemblance to a dog. It is also used to characterize someone who is belligerent and unreasonable, or displays rudely intrusive or aggressive behavior.”

Now let’s think about the slovenly manner in which young men dress and appear in the street. If the younger crowd of black men think they look good with their pants sagging way down below their butts to the extent that their underwear is showing for all to see. Women should let the man that they are with know, that to be associated with her, respect is of the utmost importance.

Most young men don’t realize the origin of the saggin look and don’t know that it is from many years past. It was the intent of slave owners to demoralize the field workers by forbidding them to wear a belt as they worked in the fields or at any other rigorous job. In addition, men in prison wore their pants low when they were ‘spoken for’. The other reason their pants looked like that was they were not allowed to have belts because prisoners were likely to try to commit suicide. And, saggin’ pants prevents you from running. Thus the name saggin was conjured up and if you reverse the spelling it would be “niggas”. Not only is it humiliating, but is also degrading, and any young lady that has any pride would not be caught with someone . Not only do the above reasons apply to boys or men wearing their pants down below that butts and showing their drawers, but it makes them waddle like ducks and walk bowlegged.

Now let’s move on to something that women have more control over. It is their own body. If a female is interested in a man she should inquire about his status as a father. Does he have any children and how many? Is he married or has he ever been married? If he has fathered children is he taking care of them? Is he giving child support to the mother? If he isn’t supporting the mother why isn’t he? These are all pertinent question that should be answered prior to having sexual relations with any man. You may wonder where I am going with this. If you are concerned about your future and welfare with a person, these are some of the things that should be important to you. These are some of the things that show the worth of that person you are intending to be interested in. If he is not supporting has children what makes you think he will support the ones that he will possibly have with you? Is he marriage material? If he can faithfully answer these questions, then give him a chance.

THOSE BOYS IN BLUE

In the city of New Orleans people think that the changing of the mayor and the chief of police are going to have a great effect of the amount of crime they have in this city. There may be some changes but it will be only minimal because the main people that are committing the crimes are not going to change that much. When it comes to the general public doing their part in policing the city, the general public will not change their reporting habits because of fear. Fear is inbred and change does not come overnight.

You can have one hundred people viewing a killing scene and not one will come forward to say they saw something. This fear is instilled in them because of upbringing and you are not going to remove it by changing the head of the demon. Plus they have that thing about not snitching. James Brown sang about “Not Snitching” and that is one code Black America has lived with since slavery. It is being kept alive by each and every ex-inmate coming out of jail. If someone is killed on the street, anyone with information regarding that killing believes that if they say anything, the same thing will happen to them.

The changes that New Orleans needs will not come simply because the mayor and the upper ranks of the police department turn white. The same racial bias will be there and the same people that speak out about the “Thugs” will still be in the city. You can change the demon and put a different color sheet on him but his feelings are still there and inbred.

You would think that these people would wise up and stop that same old racial bias line that has been going on for the ages. It did not work in the past, and it will not work now. We all must work together in order for the city to progress. The general public is going to have to work with the police department to bring the crime rate down.

The sooner people realize which way the wind is blowing, the sooner we will see that progress. New Orleans is a great city, with wonderful people, but they must learn to get along in order to accomplish what is necessary to progress and improve the city in the future.

Take Atlanta for example, after WWII it was not the city that it is today, but the people learned to work to improve relations and in doing so that city became the crown jewel of the south. No police department is adequate enough to bring crime down unless the people are helping.

If the politicians would get their fingers out of the pots and start looking to do things for industry, all of Louisiana would benefit. In my lifetime I would love to see New Orleans and Louisiana move up in the standings where the natives can be proud to call it home.

CONTROL THE OWNER IF NOT THE DOG

We have had a few dog bittings in the New Orleans Metro area in the last week or so.

Before I go too far I will say that not all incidents of dog bites are reported and all dog bites that are reported are from Pit Bulls.  The main thing with the bites by Pit Bulls is that it is the owner’s fault.  If the animals were raised around people, in a kindly manner, then the dogs would not be aggressive.  That is not to say that I would trust them fully around small children.  Small children do unexpected things and make unexpected noises or should I say strange noises that startle dogs.  Dogs respond in different ways to different things.

Our main problem when it come to owners of Pit Bulls is that the majority of owners think their dog is the “Baddest” dog in the neighborhood and treat it as though they want it to be the meanest one around.  Their first thought is not for that child that may be passing when that dog just may be out and unleashed, the keep their dog on a heavy chain which keeps the dog from even roaming around his own yard. 

I can understand the owner may want a dog to protect their property, but that same owner must realized that a dog that is trained to guard something or is isolated is not a pet and should not be considered a pet.  That owner’s property should be fenced in such a manner as to keep the dog and the general public separated.

The laws for ownership of dogs that are considered to be possibly vicious should be registered with Animal Control.  If a person is so set on owning one of these dogs he should be willing to register that animal. 

To start with any person that involved in breeding animals that can be considered to possibly be vicious should be licensed as a breeder and each litter  one of his bitches has,  should be register prior to the delivery of that litter.  Each pup should be registered and have its registration number tattooed on the inside of the upper lip, before being sold.  Each person purchasing a dog that is considered to be on the list of dogs that are considered dangerous should be licensed and his/her dog permit registered with Animal Control.

If a person is purchasing a dog as a pet, that animal should be neutered or spayed prior to release to the intended owner.  If that person does not agree to this stipulation then he/she would not be permitted to purchase the dog.  If the owner of the dog takes his animal to the veterinarian and cannot produce his permit he should be cited and have a stiff  fine to pay.
