Sojourner's Place

some things on my mind #7  

Posted by SjP in

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

1. Don't have to tell you that these are pretty rough economic times. But, if your able, PLEASE buy some stocks. Like the POTUS said a few weeks ago, now is the time while you can still get into the market relatively cheap. I'm not talking about thousands of dollars - just a couple of hundred. Trust me, you'll be very glad you did.

2. I know that close only counts when playing horse shoes, but hey - that Korean missile came a little bit too close for comfort. Look, Il has been telling us for the last 7 years that he had a missile aimed right at our back yard. At what point in time do we take him seriously? Do we have to wait until he's knocking on the door? Help me understand why we and the UN just don't take him out!

3. Columbine, Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois University, Pittsburgh, Binghamton and the countless other violent killings that we don't see on national news were all committed by deranged people with guns.
Yet, any real discussion regarding gun control in this Country always seem to end with the cliche"Guns don't kill people. People kill people". Although a true statement, it should be amended to "people kill people with guns". And the fact of the matter is that all too often the gun in the hand of some deranged person is the reason why innocent people are killed. This is a sad commentary for our Country when the right to bear arms is overshadowed by the right to live. None of these victims did anything to cause their deaths - but, the right of the assailants to bear arms was certainly the result.

4. The
Grim Sleeper: I learned a few weeks ago from my blogging sister, Ms Lady Deborah, about a serial killer that has been murdering Black women in the Los Angeles area for nearly 25 years. Many bloggers in the Afrosphere voiced their outrage over the fact that a killer has been running rapid but under the radar of mainstream media. The rants and rumblings must have paid off as CNN now has dedicated an entire site to this case. They are requesting assistance in helping to solve the case of the Grim Sleeper. I know...I know..., but now at least the information is out there and lets all pray that this maniac is caught before someone else dies.

5. Damn! What you want from the man? He got a trillion dollars to help jump start the world economy - what more you want? Personally, I wondering what else he might have accomplished if he'd been at the top of his game. He reminded me of that game Michael played when he had the flu and only scored 38!

6. C'mon now! Let Madonna adopt the child. What's the big deal? Am I missing something here?

Troy Anthony$ Davis is still waiting to hear about his fate; the Scott Sisters got life sentences for allegedly stealing $11; and Chioma Gray and Adjir Desar are still missing. And that's all I got to say about that!

Well, that's all for now...ya'll have a wonderful and blessed week!

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

Sometimes you just got to say it unfiltered and straight from the heart. Yeah!

BTW: The first time I've been able to comment on your blog in months. This time the verification notice had letters for me to put in the box. Blessings.

Alrighty!A woman has got to do what is necessary to clear her mind.

I'm glad to know that there is a sincere effort being made to hunt down the Grim Sleeper. This is definitely a SOB that needs to be caught. I'll have to check that site out.
