Greece Learned a lot from Phoenicia and Egypt.

How many of you know that Phoenicia and Egypt had a profound influence on classical Greece? Many of the gods from Greece came from Phoenicia. But it goes farther back. The first people who had pagan gods were the Ethiopians. If you remember, Ethiopia was once ancient Cush. The bible tells us that Ham had four sons; Cush, Egypt, Phut, and Canaan. Archaeologists have proven a lot of history from the bible. From ancient lands to jewelry. What hasn’t been proven is either lost over time or destroyed from wars or other calamities.

I know some of you will disagree, but you can’t argue with facts.

Summa Cum Laude gold cords

I’m so proud of my young nephew in Michigan who graduated from high school with an over 4 point average Summa Cum Laude gold cords on Sunday. He’s one of many in my family who have excelled in several areas. But I thank God before everything. Then I pray. We should always  give thanks first.

My life has changed a lot over time. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m not where I use to be either. We all face trials and tribulations. Unfortunately, some of us have made too many mistakes in life. Without God, we wouldn’t be here. Some have past on. They didn’t live long enough to change, but that’s all right because God will take care of those things. We can only do so much. If you’ve done all that’s possible don’t sit around in  despair. Move on. God does fight our battles at times. You may think, Oh, I don’t see a way out. I’m lost. I don’t know what to do. During your weakest hour, God was there, but He works on His time. God is the creator, not us. Some believe that we evolved, but they’ve never proven any of that.

They claim that Lucy was a missing link between ape-like creatures and man. Well, is that what Richard Leakey said? No. He said no firm conclusion could be found about what species Lucy belonged to. And Richard Leakey isn’t the only one. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped people from believing otherwise. They’ve been taught those lies for too long. Anyhow, I have lots of work to finish so I’ll be back with more comments later.

It Gets Worse Everyday

The Deputy Attorney General Mr. Rod Rosenstein should know what the House is up to. They want to get rid of he and Mr. Robert Mueller. Which is a damn shame. You all know that other so-called lawyer and what he continues to say. Now, the woman did wrong too. But that so-called president lied and said he didn’t know her. He lies every single day. Oh, he never had any dealings with the Russians and on and on. He paid that woman to shut up. All his crooked dealings over the years that continues today. He is so damn sickening! And you know what they said about President Obama when he was in office. Of course, Obama wasn’t perfect, but he has done a lot more than that crook will ever do for THE PEOPLE. They’re suppose to work for US. Not the other way around. And they still call Obama a Nazi. When they are the ones. People better wake up. Pray and go out and VOTE!

A Kind of Haiku

they’re waking up            skilled in self-defense                     we only have one life

no longer abused             knowing how to protect                 take the initiative

in a sordid mess              from an attack                                  that will bring peace

 

 

He’s evil!

Well, of course he wants to fire Mr. Mueller but if I’m not wrong, he has to have justifiable cause. Which he doesn’t have. It’s a shame for someone like that to be in office. Mr. James Comey will be on MSNBC on the 15th before the release of his memoir, ”A Higher Loyalty.” I’ll be sure to watch. Stay tuned.

March for our Lives!

Well, I’m back once again. I don’t share any pictures as much which most of you are aware of, but I will from time to time. My main blog page is kept simple, nothing fancy. I see we had a wonderful March for our Lives on Saturday. That’s what it takes, people from different backgrounds working for an important cause. That’s how we will WIN!

Damn Cable Bills

YouTube TV has one of the best streaming services, but their live viewing needs more work.  Getting local live news coverage is difficult. You scroll down a list that is days behind. And they don’t have enough cable channels. Showtime and others cost extra. The cable companies charge those ridiculous fees and taxes go up almost every month. If you don’t get any deals, it’s that much worse. They all have certain territories. Buckeye Broadband has northwest Ohio and parts of southeast Michigan. AT&T is national but their service is limited too. In one part of Toledo, OH you can’t get AT&T’s cable service because of technical issues but you can get their home phone and internet service. AT&T bought Direct TV a few years ago. Their Direct TV streaming service doesn’t work well. Channels don’t come in clear. They all have satellite, cable, and streaming service, but Spectrum doesn’t have 2-year contracts.

Of course some viewers don’t have any problems with service. The price and service is good, but too many of us do. I called BBB, the attorney general, and the company served because every week, the picture blurred, and other problems. The technician came out and did repairing but the same problem would start all over again. This went on for over a year. I told them that they were the problem. Since it wasn’t the building where I lived and it wasn’t my TV because I contacted that company and had them check it. I was given some discounts. Then after I adjusted my service plan it is better. We don’t need more companies buying others, we need better service and not those high prices.

Another problem that I’ve encountered are sales people. If you don’t have a solution why not ask for a supervisor? I’m talking to one going over and over a problem. You’d think the person would have enough sense to say, ”I’ll contact a supervisor for you.” But no they rather argue knowing they don’t have the answer. That’s what they’re for, to help. And my sister has had the same problem. It doesn’t make sense at all. They should have someone monitoring calls then may be they’d understand what some of us go through.

You know people have been complaining for years. And the FCC sued AT&T for throttling in 2014.

Now, I also have two antennas, but I can’t get all of my local news channels. I can only get one. I’ve read that some viewers love their antennas because they can get full service without paying taxes and fees. I want all local live news programs and my favorite cable channels with a good deal. And that certainly isn’t asking too much.

 

 

No Collusion huh

Yeah, they’ll keep saying that no matter how the end turns out. Now, look at the son-in-law. Well, what about the others? They’re guilty too more or less. Anyhow, I admire other republicans such as Ana Navarro who stand up for what is right. But all others too. No matter if you’re affiliated with a party or not. That’s all for now.

SUPERHEROES!

I’m sure many of you have heard the news by now about ”Black Panther,” an innovative superhero fantasy with nearly an all-black cast. Reviews have been great! I first saw the lead actor Chadwick Boseman playing in the James Brown movie. Though I only saw part of it, he did well.

This is what I’ve read from media sources: Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) becomes the ruler of Wakanda, a powerful African kingdom after his father’s death. He possesses vibranium, a power source that also cures illnesses and wounds and makes costumes bullet-proof when integrated with fabric. A white South African named Ulysses Klaue steals an old tool made of vibranium. He offers to sell it to a CIA name Ross. Klaue becomes T’Challa ally.

T’Challa wants to keep the vibranium a secret from the world, but a ruthless CIA contractor has other ideas. The director Ryan Coogler is also black. His first feature film Fruitvale Station, won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

T’Challa receives great support from his regal mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett), smart younger sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) and tough security warriors Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o). You may remember Lupita in 12 Years a Slave in 2013 for which she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Play.

There have been many black female superheroes. Vixen (1981), Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel!/Spectrum (1982) to name a few. The first black male superhero may have been in the 60s.

Also, Nafessa Williams plays TV’s first black lesbian superhero in The CW’s Black Lightning. Our world is much more open today, but it is still filled with bigots. People continue to say unpleasant things about women and those in the LGBTQ community. Nevertheless, our world will get better in time.

The Walt Disney Pictures release starts Friday February 16th for Black Panther. Don’t miss it!

He’ll Continue to Lie

That so-called president must have been on medicine or something because he couldn’t read the prompt for one thing. I bet he has never been that calm in his life. He has changed every decent law that President Obama put in place. They say his ratings have gone up. I thought that would happen. Well, people better wake up. I’m referring to those who don’t seem to have any sense. Mr. Andrew McCabe is gone. That’s a shame. How long will this mess continue? God help us all!
