Citizen input essential to integration revenue hearing

Citizen input essential to integration revenue hearingThe landmark Supreme Court case "Brown vs. Board of Education" marked a turning point in our nation's efforts to provide a quality education to all students.  Decades after the nation's highest court declared that racially segregated schools did not provide a fair and equitable learning environment, Minnesota created its own Integration Revenue Program.  The program was designed as a way to promote the value of a rich and diverse learning community that enhances the educational experience for all students.

Healthcare insurance cost soars

In the US, 17 percent of the nation’s economy goes toward healthcare costs; far more than in any other industrialized nation. Yet, 50 million Americans are currently without health insurance. For those fortunate enough to be covered, the high premiums and deductibles make a serious dent in their household budget.

Congressman John Lewis betrays Black Cherokee freedmen

I visited You Tube the other day and was absolutely stunned to see the venerable Congressman John Lewis addressing the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma as the Keynote Speaker for their National Holiday gathering in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. There stood Congressman John Lewis, the man who was beaten unmercifully as he fought for the right to vote to be restored to African Americans, heaping praise on Chief Chad Smith, the man who engineered the disenfranchisement and defacto expulsion of thousands of Black Cherokee Freedmen from the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma (CNO).

Healthcare insurance cost soars

17 percent of the nation’s economy goes toward healthcare costs; far more than in any other industrialized nation. Yet, 50 million Americans are currently without health insurance. For those fortunate enough to be covered, the high premiums and deductibles make a serious dent in their household budget. Companies are paying less for employee healthcare while workers are coming out of pocket more often, sometimes for fewer services. A medical emergency can often leave a family financially drained. In fact, a large percentage of those who file bankruptcy do so because of mounting healthcare bills.  There is a clear and urgent need for healthcare reform.  The system is broken. It is time that is fixed.

Racial schizophrenia

Speaking to NBC News Anchor Brian Williams former president Jimmy Carter (taking a breather between having tea with dictators and lunatics) proffered that not only was South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson’s inappropriate outburst during President Obama’s speech before a joint session of congress fueled by racism, but the wider opposition to Obama is also based on the fact that Obama is Black.  Said Carter: "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American."

Obama fighting back, at last!

President Barack Obama took off the gloves in his speech to Congress on health care reform, seeming to hear those who said that he was not leading, that he had not been specific enough; they did not know where he stood on some of the critical issues. Of course, many of these charges are a mystery to me, perhaps because I paid attention to the speeches that previewed the aims of his initial White House Summit on health care, the bi-partisan meetings in the White House on health care, the many speeches he has given on town halls all over the country, the Saturday messages on health care, and the many other places where he has given his views on this subject.

Serena Williams - Beautifully human

Serena Williams - Beautifully human Days after Serena Williams melted down during her US Open match with her long-time friend and fellow tennis champion Kim Clijsters, the controversy continues to swirl.  As of this writing there is talk of a possible suspension, further fines, and other action against the phenomenal tennis diva who let her intensity and passion run away with her when she reacted inappropriately to what may have been a faulty foot fault call on the part of an overzealous line judge.  Several of the commentators noted that the foot fault call was untimely and perhaps inappropriate.  Nothing, however, excuses Serena’s behavior.
