Sojourner's Place

some things on my mind #2  

Posted by SjP in

Got some things, that I just feel like sharing, rambling, or ranting about. So here goes:

1. We are all deeply saddened by the tragedy that has befallen Jennifer Hudson and her family. We all need to remember that God puts nothing on us that we can't bear and this too, shall come to pass.

But, I must ask: How many other "Jennifer Hudsons" are out there who have experienced a death or kidnapping of their loved-one but because they are NOT famous their tears go unnoticed and unreported? While the murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew is just horrible - and I pray for her and her family - my heart is also heavy with the hundreds of missing African-American children for whom there is no out-pouring of media coverage. Are their lives no less important? Are they no less loved? This is the reason SjP's will continue to use Wordless Wednesday's to alert all Sojourners visiting here that there are those who are Black and Missing who are not only loved but are also NOT FORGOTTEN.

2. So, the Ice Queen is a Diva? Tell me, what gave it away?

3. Much obliged to all "using my good towels". Got more to spare, so feel free to use them cause they for compny only!

4. Please join in the Worldwide Day of Prayer and Fasting on Monday, Nov. 3. While the intent of this prayer vigual is to pray for Senator Obama's safety, I urge Sojourners pray for all of the candidates in this race. And most of all for God's will to be done in this election, our Country, and the world.

5. Seems that Divas and DJs continues to be the booking agent for Shirley Q. Liquor aka Charles Knipp. Despite protests, petitions, and just plain outrage, this self-proclaimed actor, comedian, nurse, minister and drag queen, continues to denigrate African-American women while performing for his adoring fans. This real a$$hole has rejuvenated his website which you can see here; and if you're really a glutton for punishment - here's his My Space Page. And guess what - he's supporting Lt. Dan and the Ice Queen, so what's that tell you!

6. On Friday of last week, the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick dismissed the lawsuit brought by Philip Berg's lawsuit claiming that Barack Obama was NOT eligible to be the POTUS. Berg's suit claimed that:

a. Obama is either a citizen of his father’s native Kenya, by birth there or through operation of U.S. law; or b. that Obama became a citizen of Indonesia by relinquishing his prior citizenship (American or Kenyan) when he moved there with his mother in 1967. c. Either way, in Plaintiff’s opinion, Obama does not have the requisite qualifications for the Presidency that the Natural Born Citizen Clause mandates. d.The Amended Complaint alleges that Obama has actively covered up this information and that the other named Defendants are complicit in Obama’s cover-up.

Thank goodness Surrick saw this lawsuit for what it was - a pile of crap - dismissing it on the on grounds that it lacked standing.


Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

I think what bothered me most about the tragedy with Jennifer Hudson's family was the little boy (Marvalus does love the babies)...and I absolutely abhor hearing when an innocent child is snatched from this earth because of some adult bull...

I hear you though...there are so many others that our hearts weep for, should weep for...I honor your for what you do here for being their voice...

@ ClnMike, yes...they will do anything imaginable and unimaginable in an attempt to win this election. Gotta admit that I've not paid much attention to Barr and McKinney so I haven't heard about the taxes.

@ Ms Marva, anyone who would harm a child needs to experience street justice as far as I'm concerned. Death by lethal injection would just be too kind.

My heart certainly goes out to Jennifer and her family. The pain they feel right now must be unbearable. It just bothers me that it appears that our value is determined by "who we are". We continue to hear about Caylee on the news but what about "LaKeesha" she's missing, too.

Much obliged, very much obliged...
