All The News That Fits

Playing on the Black Notes

Posted by Nancy on November 2, 2008

I had to get someone else to play the organ for me in church today – cold, laryngitis, fever etc.  All is not right with the world when I miss church, but sometimes life gets in the way.  Playing the hymns isn’t as important as not sharing the germs.

So, in celebration of Sunday I am giving you this gift.  It is an amazing performance by Wintley Phipps, an ordained minister and founder of The Dream Academy to help the children of convicts.  He understands history, but draws strength from it to move ahead rather than nurturing past wounds.

Mr. Phipps has performed for Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela as well as presidents Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George Bush.  Perhaps he will perform for our next president as well.

    Wake up . Obama is only out for Obama. We dont vote for an anti Americans. Obama is an ANTI AMERICAN COMMUNIST SELL OUT. He wants ALL African Americans to believe you are the underclass.When you apply for a home loan do the banks care about the color of your skin? NO they only care on how much you can get a loan for, This is based on your credit score. I know I refinanced my home and the company that got it done NEVER SAW ME ALL BY PHONE AND FAX. Dont let him put this GREAT NATION DOWN .WE ARE AMERICA WE THE PEOPLE. NOT ANYONE COLOR OR RACE. NOT ANYONE RELIGION . BUT ONE AMERICA.

    You DONT RAISE TAXES WHEN THE DOLLAR IS DOWN . YOU DONT CUT THE FUNDS TO THE ARMED SERVICES WHEN THEY ARE ON THE BATTLE FIELD. And that is what he wants . Seeing he has never put his life in the line of fire saying I WILL DEFEND MY COUNTRY WITH MY LIFE. THAT IS WHAT AMERICAN PATRIOT IS . He wants to give the hard working AMERICANS MONEY TO THOSE THAT WANT TO SAY I JUST CANT DO IT. BLACK OR WHITE . WE ALL WORK HARD AND WE ALL PAY OUR TAXES. ITS NOT RACE ITS HOW HARD YOU WORK. He see him self as a new JFK. Thats odd Ask not what your country can do for you , But what you can do for your country. That means smaller government less pointless programs less taxes. More accountability to the AMERICAN PEOPLE. That is John McCains plan. Less in taxes less in Government spending . MORE POWER TO THE COUNRTY. WAKE UP LOOK WHAT THE CRAP THE ANTI AMERICAN IS SELLING.
