The big election in Illinois is for Governor. You don’t have to like Governor Pat Quinn, but just remember this, almost 700 thousand in Illinois have been helped because of the full implementation of Obamacare in this state. Of that, over 460,000 were helped because of the Medicaid Expansion. Rauner has already said that he would NOT have done that..because THAT is who he is. So, think on THAT. If Rauner had been Governor, nearly a HALF MILLION PEOPLE in this state – the WORKING POOR – would be without access to BASIC healthcare. Rauner also doesn’t believe in the minimum wage. Just thought you should know.

Serendipity SOUL Monday Open Thread | Kenny G Week

Happy Monday, Everyone. This week’s featured artist is Kenny G!


Kenneth Bruce Gorelick (born June 5, 1956), better known by his stage name Kenny G, is an American adult contemporary and smooth jazz saxophonist. His fourth album, Duotones, brought him breakthrough success in 1986. Kenny G is the biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era and one of the best-selling artists of all time, with global sales totaling more than 75 million records.

Kenny G was born in Seattle, Washington, to Jewish parents (his mother was originally from Saskatchewan, Canada) and grew up in the city’s Seward Park neighborhood, which is a center of the city’s Jewish community. He came into contact with a saxophone when he heard someone performing with one on The Ed Sullivan Show. He started playing the saxophone in 1966 when he was 10 years old. He learned how to play under the direction of local trumpeter Gerald Pfister and by practicing along with records (mostly of Grover Washington, Jr.), trying to emulate the sounds that he was hearing. His first saxophone was a Buffet Crampon alto.

How can you claim fear when you’re the ONLY one with a gun, Darren Wilson?

Darren Wilson25This New York Times article stinks to high heaven.

Darren Wilson claims he feared for his life and shot Michael Brown in self defense. That dog don’t hunt! Why fear when you’re the ONLY one with a fucking gun?

Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown from inside car. So the New York Times wants us to believe a kid who was shot, runs away, decides to charge Darren Wilson?

In what world does an unarmed kid who has been shot, runs away from a hail of bullets to charge into more hail of bullets? Fuckouttahere New York Times.

The New York Times goes on to say Michael Brown’s blood was found inside the car. Of course Michael Brown’s blood is going to be found inside Darren Wilson police car, it’s not rocket science. Wilson fired from inside the car but NONE of Wilson’s blood is found.

Can the New York Times explain why Wilson continued to fire bullets into Michael Brown and pause for 3 seconds when his hands were up surrendering? 6 consistent eyewitnesses says Michael Brown’s hands were up.

Jeff Roorda5But the New York Times would rather take the word of a police union thug, Jeff Roorda, who has a history of falsifying reports, misconduct and FIRED because of it than 6 consistent black eyewitnesses.

When the orbital eye socket didn’t work, the msm pushed “Josie” LIE, when witnesses shredded that lie, now they’re back to “he went for my gun and I was afraid for my life” BS.

Face it America, 6 black eyewitnesses is not credible enough for the white media. They MUST take the white man’s word at any cost. Taney’s LAW! “Blacks have no rights which the white man is bound to respect”.

As co-blogger Ametia says…”Hopefully that New York Times is going to become extinct. In the meantime, I’m sure kitty litter boxes would appreciate it”.

Ancient Treasures of Native American Culture

DAILY MAIL: According to the Library of Congress’ website: ‘When European settlers arrived on the North American continent at the end of the fifteenth century, they encountered diverse Native American cultures—as many as 900,000 inhabitants with over 300 different languages.’

‘These people, whose ancestors crossed the land bridge from Asia in what may be considered the first North American immigration, were virtually destroyed by the subsequent immigration that created the United States.
