Issue 02:  What Is the Problem with the Victors’ writing History?

‘The problem with kissing any wanna be Dictator’s ass?  Pretty soon they begin to think you like it!’

I was reading an article on ‘The Hill’ online and it was countering the points of why Vladimir Putin isn’t a ‘genius’ or ‘savvy’ under no interpretation of either meaning.  Appalling to read that they were even comparing him to Sun Tzu.  Really?  The arrogance of ignorance rears its’ head once again.  Sun Tzu clearly stated something like winning a war without even fighting it.  Is that Vladimir Putin?  Sun Tzu also said something about fighting in cities that it is the worst strategy of all.  Is that where Vladimir Putin the Great wishes to wage war?  One last thing before we move on.  Sun Tzu said the leader must have the Moral high ground.  Does Vladimir Putin possess the Moral high ground?

Who in the Hell is Vladimir Putin going to take war advice from?  Isn’t that the antithesis to listening to wise council?  Why would a dictator heed wise council?  Vladimir Putin is the President of Russia.  He has that position because he offers gifts to those capable of keeping him in power.  Again, ‘when you have everybody kissing your ass why would Putin think you don’t like it.’

Forgive my ignorance.  I should’ve explained my ideas about how we got to this point in America today if not the world.  How do you drive ignorance?  Keep it going.  Keep it alive.  Pump it up with unending foolishness?  Before the onset of telephones there was just the spoken and the written word.  Then came the ‘moving picture’ and sound was later added to it.  Art was incorporated into the lore as well.  What’s the saying?  “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  Oh my goodness how the clever man could sway thoughts and even prompt weak minded individuals to do his evil bidding.

For instance, tell tales of unspeakable crimes which usually meant crimes committed by Black men against White women in particular.  Yell them from the altar in hooded white robes.  Tell the masses of their false God in their demon churches how that it’s okay to kill human beings bereft of proof as asserted.  Ignorance is swift and enticing because it doesn’t require the truth.  Stay away from the truth.  Why?  If the people know the truth it will set them free.  Avoid that at all costs.

Dawn the digital age and what it has meant for the ‘commerce of evil’.  Evil is a booming business!  Stoking ignorance is possible 24 hours a day 7 days a week now.  Throw in some grievances about obeying rules even though ‘everything should be done decently and in order.’  Oh sorry, don’t worry about that now?  Right moving on to how former President Trump praising this guy Vladimir Putin who is in truth a madman.  Somebody call 1989 and tell them Vladimir Putin wants the Soviet Union back.  Talk about trying to catch the one or numerous ones that got away.

Listen to me, just because some people praise idiots and attempt to assign them qualities not currently in their possession doesn’t make it so.  Genius?  Really?  Let me take a stab at defining it for any age as some people have bestowed it upon Putin.  Genius to me would be one man taking on the entire world and outsmarting them all.  Take 3 responses to Putin’s actions that would tell me he’s a genius.  One, sanctions levied on me I would already be producing what I’d be denied in country as far as food products.  Two, I’d cut off oil and gas supplies and know that Russia is the only country that has these resources.  Three, technology and every component to produce things capable of making other things I’d already produce them in house.

Question to intelligent readers only.  Does the Russian President have everything he needs in country to securely wall himself off from the rest of the world?  Right!  The answer is SHIT NO!  This is the man some people are calling a genius?  The world doesn’t work like that anymore and all those Republicans that want 1939 back must’ve skipped world history.  The United States didn’t win World War II on its’ own dumbasses!

Putin gamed out every scenario and outsmarted every nation on the planet?  The only people that believe that seem to be Republicans because their view has been browned out by all that ass kissing they do to the one term loser former President Donald Trump.  Let me say this as I close out this second issue of Ground Water Sky.  Republicans please stop stoking the ignorance in your voters to win elections.  Truth can’t be stopped, blocked or distorted.  To the Democrats I say this.  Keep advising President Biden as I can see you’re doing your best every day to get it right.  I believe the Holy Bible says, ‘in the multitude of counselors there is safety.’  Which means caring for those you have the charge over.  It doesn’t mean shy away from the tough decisions.  It means hear counsel and make decisions.

That’s why when history is written by the ‘Victors’ the retelling of the story is void if not entirely of accurate content.  The Moral high ground would deter anyone endued with respectable principles to govern according to those requirements.  Alas, evil has a lot more followers than the good among us.  Remember that much my loyal readers.

Issue 01:  Inflation and the Countermeasures to defeat it

America let’s be clear.  I will bring all techniques to bear on inflation which includes selective purchases of goods and services.  Groceries, gas and high dollar items are all contained in this effort to combat it.  These techniques are for the consumer and the wage earners to retain more of their hard fought hourly and salary increases.  Don’t misunderstand me here.  I am not seeking to derail legitimate price increases year over year that cover the costs of manufacturing and labor.  What I’m combating here is price increases done to take advantage of the current situation in the world today.

Before I start I want to be clear that these techniques are in place in running my household as well.  If you can do without something don’t buy it.  For instance, I love this brand of sharp cheddar cheese from Wisconsin.  It has been out of stock at the commissary for months now.  Will I buy it when and if it’s back in stock?  Probably but not as often as before because I’ve found another sharp cheddar cheese of the same quality as a replacement.  I love T-bone steaks, but I’ve lowered my purchase volume and now portion one out to eat over three days.

If you must have something buy it, but if you can do without it don’t buy it.  Don’t buy juice that was $2.75 a month ago and is now $4.25.  The things that are unnecessary forgo them or wait to buy them on sale.  Return to a rainy day mentality.  Store money away for the essentials when things are tight.  Again listen to me.  Support the businesses that are paying higher wages so they can be locked in place.  Nothing is for certain right now, so we have to work together to keep the gains we’ve accomplished!

I’ve said this next technique in one of my other digital periodicals.  Stop paying more for cars than what they are worth!  I don’t care whether they are new or used.  Stop it right now!  I’m not going to call a person that does that an idiot anymore, but anyone that is still doing it is hurting everyone else.  Trust me, the car companies don’t need more of your money over what is a fair price for their products.

I’m going to keep this post short.  What I’m going to do for the first time in over a year is start placing ads back on this website.  I will leave my personal business email for anyone that has ideas or comments.  My accounting email for businesses that want to advertise as well.  They are:  

P. S.

This also begins this websites’ push for voting teams.  We want every State in this great country to organize teams of Democrats and Republicans that want to acknowledge and teach America’s true history and place truth seeking people in public office.  This is day one.  Keep updated cause I believe this is a heck of a glorious ride we’re about to embark upon.  I wouldn’t miss it for the world!




The STRIPES of Healing

Founding Statement:

This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own.  The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty.  Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience.  “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.

Issue 18:  Police Viewpoints and Interpretation

First let me begin by thanking those two boys for renewing my faith in the brotherhood.  Two boys of different color fist fighting, and nobody got shot just totally warmed my heart.  I am a 55 year old Black man glad to see that type of disagreement if it had to be settled settled like it was in my day.  That being said it is not surprising to me the police reacted just as they did.  No inherent bias huh?  No institution racism huh?  No assumptions about who is guilty and who is innocent based on skin color huh?

The police just zeroed in on the young Black boy and totally comforted the young White boy.  No thought to first establishing some order without putting anyone in handcuffs.  Here’s what I mean.  I work in Behavioral Health and some disturbances in the hospital are between staff and patients.  I don’t know what’s going on when I enter the unit that called for assistance.  You know what I do?  I say to all parties involved this.  I need everybody to be calm so I can find out what happened.  I don’t pick sides or assign blame on nobody.  I need information from everybody and when they call me over I take the lead.  Nobody is at fault.  I am here to solve the issue.  Mental health is different yawl.

This is why consistency is critical when you are counted upon to judge situations righteously.  Authorized King James version Bible.  James Chapter 2:1-4…My brethren have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2. For it there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

Yeah Critical Race Theory shouldn’t be taught.  Human beings don’t learn things and pass those things down to future generations.  It’s all in the imagination of Black people.  By the way talk about self-awareness.  Zero points to the Bridgewater Township Police Department in New Jersey on showing the world how your officers perform their duties with integrity and professionalism.  Yeah right!  Talk about being oblivious to the fact that cellphones have cameras and audio capabilities.  

I see two officers that either didn’t get training on breaking up a fistfight between two teenage boys, or those officers just willfully admitting they have zero skills to separate them and ask why they were fighting.  By law we’re not allowed to have handcuffs, restraints, tasers or anything offensive at my job.  I have something in my arsenal immensely more powerful though.  I have my mind and my voice to talk a volatile situation to a reasonable outcome.  It is outcomes that matter, and those police officers failed their profession and their department.

Evil is the outcome when partiality is displayed by anyone and everybody.  Being impartial is something learned.  How can human beings learn anything if when shown you’re in the wrong people deny the truth?  From their leaders to forward facing personnel.  Correction is a good thing if taken truthfully.  Yes, correction is a bad thing if not enforced.  Then what is the point if those people in whatever profession continue to behave without accountability are allowed to remain on the job.  

If you are in charge, all I have to say to you then is don’t get mad at people when you are the one responsible for degrading your organization.  I wrote about it long ago.  Just look it up on this site.  Again to those two boys, both of you will probably become best friends in the future.  That’s how the brotherhood worked in my day.


Mother Se’May Sayer:  The ARC of Time

Season 2:  Episode 8:  The Miseducation of Leadership


(The days are long when correction is grievous.  How does that saying goes I wonder?  Mother is always recalling or creating what she believes are guiding lights when darkness and failure seems to celebrate their wins over a person’s hopes and dreams.  Ah this is it she says, ‘Hope closes in one or two steps to the goal but change flies like a spear covering more ground when it lands true’. 

Oh what I wouldn’t give to spend less time teaching and coming off the sternness just for a moment to catch my breath.  Modeling isn’t a strain as I don’t need a mirror to remind me of who I am every day.  Just that I want to get more things done but I know I can’t rush the growth of my people.  Mother contemplates these issues from time to time for brief moments, but she knows she can’t linger in the why of her people’s lagging learning curves.

Mother isn’t irritated with the speed or lack thereof in her plans getting done.  She uses these questions about why things progress the way they do to reaffirm her oaths to her discipline.  “Professionals have professional conversations another officer once told her”.  Don’t lessen the voices of your people because they don’t improve along the timeline you set for them.  It doesn’t mean you don’t push them to be better.  Just keep being hands on but not micromanaging and your people will see you have expectations they are required to meet.  If they fall short then it is still okay because now you’ll know their weakest point and work to help them strengthen it.  Alas, leading is a full time profession.).

——————1st Chapter——————

Mother Sayer:  Sarah where’s the reports for the three projects started last quarter?

Sarah W. Certainty:  I have them right here.  Sorting through the material to answer questions I know you always have for me took a minute.

Mother Sayer:  Go on.

Sarah W. Certainty:  It looks like all three teams are progressing, but the going isn’t matching the talent you have on those projects.

Mother Sayer:  How so?

Sarah W. Certainty:  I would’ve figured by now there would be solid production costs in place for the media project.  Actors hired all the way to where and when showing would start to at least 1 to 3 episodes in post-production.  The Business Project pardon me repeatedly saying the leader is causing heated disagreements and thus the project can be determined at this time to be at a standstill.  The Model Project is flowing to which I’m delighted to conclude.  The scoreboard now reads you’re going into the second quarter losing.  I believe a coach would now call a timeout to regroup and speechify the teams getting their heads more focused in the game right?

Mother Sayer: (Mother laments the constant necessity of leadership.  My hands gotta be on the shoulder of my students at all times it seems.  Alright!).  Goodness the work of leadership is tiring.  I’ve got to show them I believe in them and at the same time be gentle, stern and a driving force that I want this done and done right.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Don’t get out of character Mother.  What is needed now might just be a little encouragement.

Mother Sayer:  I should get a sense of what’s going on before I start barking orders is that it?

Sarah W. Certainty:  What do you want from your people?  I mean their development.  What sort of leaders are you trying to create?  Do you have it secure in your mind right now?  If not then let’s talk so I can help you steer clear of landmines.

Mother Sayer:  I need people Like Blinner.  She runs my Father’s gas station and trucking service location.  I asked her to look into some land for other offices once and she brought me two fine pieces of property to consider.  

Sarah W. Certainty:  So someone with energy and initiative right?

Mother Sayer:  In abundance but also a master of their soul.  Success can be liberating and also debilitating.

Sarah W. Certainty:  That is true.  My Father chose lieutenants that could handle themselves among dangerous men, but he also didn’t need the headache of men acting out of order.  My father made sure they understood that they were not to act without permission when it came to say managing the boss’s assets.

Mother Sayer:  Can’t crack heads without permission right?

Sarah W. Certainty:  Frankly that’s right.  That’s how my Father ran things which I must say is not unlike what you need to do.  Give your people authority to manage their projects but remind them that critical decisions need to be run by you.  Money, locations, new hires, contracts that you have to fulfill must be brought up to your attention.

Mother Sayer:  I see the same thing that I did with Blinner letting her scout new locations for expansion but keep me in the loop.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Yeah that’s it.  They need to be in the room though when you authorize expenditures.  

Mother Sayer:  Because I’m creating leaders and educating them right means exposing them to all the nuts and bolts that make the wheels turn on progress.

Sarah W. Certainty:  We’re getting somewhere now aren’t we so stay with me as I teach you a few more things.

Mother Sayer:  Oh, I see what you did there.  I’m listening.

Sarah W. Certainty: (Sarah eyes Mother through her peripheral vision as she continues to make her points.).  Alternate between intense questioning of why they think this approach would work and to what outcomes they expect from it.

Mother Sayer:  Show them I’m paying attention to every word they say.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Yes.  The third and last point I want to make is don’t override their decisions if you don’t have to.  Power wielded incorrectly is miseducation of what leadership is actually meant to provide.  Before you ask I will tell you.  Leadership is solemn but righteous in that punishment awaits those that through malice of thought undermine the potential awakening of leadership in a person.

Mother Sayer:  Come again?

Sarah W. Certainty:  My Father led his criminal organization.  The miseducation of leadership would have us believe that was a misguided offshoot of its’ righteous Father.  Leaders can be evil.  I’m saying be vigilant about what you teach to whom.  The consequences are well documented in the horrible history of humankind.

Mother Sayer:  So it is my responsibility to not educate someone not worthy of leading other human being?

Sarah W. Certainty:  That’s right!  I don’t believe in fantasies.  I know there is a need for men like my Father in this world.  Wishing for a world devoid of evil is the domain of priests.  If leadership in my opinion must be taught to those capable of wielding it then it needs to be rationed or a value placed upon it so high it can’t be achieved by no one unworthy of it.

Mother Sayer:  After years of being with me I never knew this about you.  You feel strongly about this about how people can be led by good and evil as a matter of necessity.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I have waited with these thoughts to speak with someone capable of understanding them as I draw them out.  Apologies are in order.  I deliberately tried to provoke you to anger.  I should have known you were long past consuming ‘milk’ instead of ‘meat’.  Meat is for those that are capable of discerning both good and evil.

Mother Sayer:  No apologies are required.  I am here for you always my child.  I would never lash out in anger towards you.  I  will take this time though to reaffirm with you that you can speak to me about anything.  I would never get mad at you.  How I started with you is how I will remain with you.  There’s no flipping the script with me.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I know.  Two Mothers are always better than one and I’m thankful for both of you.

Mother Sayer:  Now you believe I should stay within a certain set of principles, but also be mindful that the leader in front of me I’m responsible for if he or she goes and uses my teachings for malicious purposes?

Sarah W. Certainty:  Yes.  I know you can handle it though.  Although I must put a bug in your ear that you don’t have a lot of time to spend on the third floor.

————–2nd Chapter—————-

Mother Sayer:  Let’s pause a little longer Sarah.  There have been thoughts lingering in my mind about the men and women chosen by God and his son Jesus in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.  How were those people chosen?  What trait or skill did they possess that made them stand out to God and Jesus?

I mean these people led tribes, flocks and entire nations.  The text of the Holy Word did say some faltered.  Some were killed.  Some committed evil in spite of being chosen.  Yes some did repent and were forgiven.  Because you said I must be wary of bestowing authority and shoring up that authority as my choice could in the end be found unworthy.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I know you love your people and don’t want to think of the possibility that the wrong person is in the room.  A wolf has been let in the fold and is sniffing out the vulnerabilities of your people and your organization.  Please Mother I’m just saying be careful.  I would never tell you to hold back your energy.  I can feel it.  I know when you get here every day.  Just, don’t hold back but also be careful of power.  Only the good uses of it is projected and we both know that’s not the entire picture.

Mother Sayer:  Exactly my dear and I agree and accept your cautious admonition.  The Bible is a great and vastly complex yet simple story.  One part of that story I found fascinating was that of Moses.  Touching only the part after he at great cost rejected a life of luxury.  Moses accepted the greatest responsibility there is in this life.  Leader of an entire nation.  Most people only read, recite or preach about Moses’ obedience to God.  They don’t mention how God taught and counseled him every step of the way because that doesn’t fit a narrative Americans like to tell themselves.

Sarah W. Certainty:  A narrative of the ‘self-made man’ right?

Mother Sayer:  That’s right.  So many people in this country done struck themselves down with that complex.  Their mental health is flapping like laundry on a clothesline at the mercy of strong wind.  They’ve given their natural learning abilities over to cliches and poorly crafted old wives’ tales.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Certainly.  I’ve listened to my friends as they speak about what problems they have on their jobs and how their friends advise them to not ruffle the feathers or stand out.  It will get you fired they say.  Yet they still work at these jobs that drain every ounce of energy from them while tossing them cookie-cutter certificates of appreciation.

Mother Sayer:  I know and that’s why America is misled by captains of industry that couldn’t form an original thought in their minds if God put it there himself.  Innovation comes from where is a question I want you to answer.  Where does innovation and new ideas originate in a small or a large corporation?

Sarah W. Certainty:  It comes from the people below the man sitting at the top.

Mother Sayer:  More precisely a White man.  Take a look for a moment at two sectors of the American economy.  The industrial base and the entertainment industry.  When decisions are made in a small business more than likely input comes from everybody that works there.  When decisions are made in a large corporation they come from a few people.  Mainly old White men are advising old White men what to do.

Take microprocessors for example.  Who thought that it would be a good idea to give nearly the entire production capacity to factories in other countries?  Who decided that was the right thing to do?  Not one single old White guy looked beyond the money they were saving by not paying American workers what they deserve.  In America 2022 does that decision look like a forward thinking one?

Sarah W. Certainty:  No it’s not.  So the predicament or predicaments America finds itself from time to time aren’t caused by some random invisible force.  Like someone is turning a circular dial with preset clicks of hardships no matter where the needle lands?

Mother Sayer:  I’m sure the old white men that made those decisions would never accept blame for what’s happening to our lagging production capacity.  This is what’s astonishing.  Again without anyone present in the room schooled or learned in the philosophical disciplines there’s no one really running those decisions to ground.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Apologies.  I should’ve known you were a student of these things.  You had to be if you wanted to start a business and know where you wanted to take it.

Mother Sayer:  Just think about it for a minute.  The applications for microprocessors has expanded quicker than anybody anticipated.  Now they’re in practically every machine and device manufactured.  Glad to have White guys believing they’ve got all the answers huh?  How’s that working out for America?

Sarah W. Certainty:  Like I said my father knew he needed competent lieutenants, and he placed them in charge in key areas of his criminal enterprise.  Whether they were White guys or men from the old countries like Italy, Sicily or the United Kingdom.  Different outlooks can be corralled by a well-traveled and well-rounded leader.

Mother Sayer:  Yes!  I’ve got to have diversity in the ranks.  Will I make an erroneous choice?  Yes.  More than one time I dam sure will, but it is unavoidable.  This is why your friends are told not to ruffle feathers or rock boats.  Let me tell you something I guess I didn’t have to be taught by my father.  Speak up if you feel violated.  If something is about to go wrong say something and be firm about it.  Let it be known even if everyone else in that meeting agrees with the boss.  

Sarah W. Certainty:  I guess I possessed that skill just by having the good fortune of being born to a mobster.

Mother Sayer:  We can’t chose our parents, but we can certainly chose to pay attention and learn something in every moment of our lives.  By the way, I would second that motion that you are not a pushover which is why I thank my lucky stars for your professionalism and maturity.  My I could talk to you all day Sarah about things I’ve learned and the success I’ve enjoyed just being able to take criticism and correction.

Sarah W. Certainty:  My mother could make me do a lot of things.  One thing she couldn’t make me do is keep my mouth closed.  I had to learn the hard way one day popping off to my father about something I wanted to do after he said no.  My face was red and stung for two days, but I knew not to disrespect my father again.

Mother Sayer:  It takes an adjustment to know when to speak and when not to speak.  Maybe that small rebuke was all you needed to adjust mentally.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I know you got to go but finish what you were saying about two sectors of the American economy.

Mother Sayer:  The entertainment industry is much the same way in the stale nature of what in their minds are ‘acceptable’ programming for network television and the movies.  Now they’re falling behind because the streaming media companies paste their butts with shows that more reflect the lives people live.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I do have a few shows I watch on Netflix and Hulu that are way more interesting that 90% of the shows on Network television.

Mother Sayer:  Right.  Diversity in my opinion adds controls like a risk assessment I often used in the Army.  The dangers are listed and then controls are placed next to them line by line to lower the risks inherent in the many harmful well really lethal activities associated with armed forces.

Sarah W. Certainty:  If only certain groups of people are in the room there could be something they could be missing because they aren’t factoring in every possible outcome.  Their views and understandings are limited by not seeing the entire picture.  Different people like different things which vexes me about America.  How can a White man tell Black people or Hispanic people or any race of people he isn’t a member what is important for them?  

Mother Sayer:  Exactly!  Realistically it is better to have different ways of viewing and interpreting events in the world.  People that look like each other are inherently bound to draw the same conclusions.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Tomatoes and peppers do provide distinctly different flavors to the dish ordered from a restaurant menu.

Mother Sayer:  What oh, you’re providing a cooking analogy.  The differences in aroma, texture and variety of every ingredient makes a more enjoyable eating experience.  There is a renowned legacy known across the culinary world about Italian food.  It is justified.

Sarah W. Certainty:  My mother says if you put a plate of food in front of a man and he eats it with gusto, then a wife should take pleasure in the sight of her man devouring her cooking.  Food should be pleasurable just as much as love making.

Mother Sayer:  Love making?

Sarah W. Certainty:  Italian women are most passionate.  I can provide testimony to that.  Just from what I’ve seen how my parents are all over each other.  Little touches or kisses here and there.  Looks that linger to include grooming like brushing back hair from the face or straitening clothes or giving approval to what each other is wearing.

Mother Sayer:  I think this talk today has opened my preconceptions up for examination which in truth I’ve quickly assessed as they’ve cascaded across my mind.  Don’t worry I won’t teach or attempt to teach somebody something I know doesn’t have the capability of receiving it for what it is intended. 

Sarah W. Certainty:  We both know there are too many women and men in positions of power with the fate of their companies and to a large degree their countries economies in unskilled hands.  

Mother Sayer:  I’ve got to push the boundaries.  Helping my people succeed helps my company succeed.  Exclusion from a Black woman’s perspective has been devastating to our economy.  I will always make a decision when I need to because the Army has indoctrinated and conditioned me to act under pressure.  What I also have a responsibility to do is train up people that have the capability of leadership.  Will I train a person unworthy?  Of course, win or lose I still must do that.

—————–3rd Chapter——————–

(Mother makes her three stops at all three projects and receives her updates.  All of the assessments put together gives her encouragement which is what she was hoping.  She did approve more funding and production sites for all projects.  She left the leaders in place for now.  Mother knows changes at the top could roil the entire project, so she left well enough alone.  She did leave everybody with the impression that progress is expected at her next briefing.).

Mother Sayer: (Mother returns to her office to let Sarah know what took place so everybody knows where the projects stood on that day.).  Sarah the meetings weren’t too bad.  I see I’m not immune to assuming the worst is going to happen.  Something else I need to work on about me.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Don’t we all.  So what happened?

Mother Sayer:  The production project was actually in the hiring of actor’s stage.  I got the sense that their writers were finishing up on the first three stories and the entire purpose and plot of the show.  The BAD project leader Mr. O’Woh is actually doing good.  He isn’t as bad as I thought or the friction toward him seems to be at a minimum.  He really seems to be taking our last encounter to heart.

Sarah W. Certainty:  That’s like saying there’s cement still in the truck when you know you dumped it all over him.

Mother Sayer:  Oh I see, a reference to cement shoes gangster style.

Sarah W. Certainty:  A little humor.  I’m working on it.

Mother Sayer:  Try smaller sentences and catchy phrases.  They’re easier to remember because they land better on the mind.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Right.  Mr. O’Woh must’ve had soap ready to clean all that cement off.

Mother Sayer:  Better.  The Model Project is having recruiting problems.  It seems Ms. Oakli is having trouble relating to the target audience for her project.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Are you going to throw her a life vest I mean from what you said she is in over her head.

Mother Sayer:  Why?  For what?  She has only experienced a side of life where money opens doors for you.  I’m going to let her learn that on the less fortunate side of life relationships are all that matters.  She’s going to learn how to relate, or she’s done at the ARC.

Sarah W. Certainty:  You’re not going to how did you say it ‘Sesame Street that shit for her’.

Mother Sayer: (Mother chuckles and remembers she did share that line from one of her medical Sergeants).  Right.  No Sarah.  Ms. Oakli needs to learn, and I would do her a disservice by shielding her from acquiring skills critical to survive when you are out of your comfort zone.

Sarah W. Certainty:  The miseducation of leadership.

Mother Sayer:  When I got shot on that ‘clip’ in Iraq I didn’t have somebody there I could fall back on to take over or tell me what to do to get out of it.  I either called on what I learned or me and my soldiers would’ve died that day.  We also have a saying in the Army.  “If you don’t know your tactics it’s too late in a firefight.  What you’re going to have then is an oh shit moment and then that’s too late.”  

Sarah W. Certainty:  Better know what you’re doing before you step up right?

Mother Sayer:  Well that’s why the Army spends ungodly sums of time in training.  If you don’t know what to do when you’re in a real conflict then it’s your fault.

Sarah W. Certainty:  You’re going to let the project fail?

Mother Sayer:  Yes if that’s what it takes.  I brought her into the ARC.  She must be tested.  She took the job Sarah.  Hey there’s another saying.

Sarah W. Certainty:  I got it.  ‘Can’t stand the heat stay outta the kitchen.’

Mother Sayer:  Yeah.  Sarah I don’t need to know this stuff.  I already know this.  She’s acting all high and mighty then she’s calling for what she must face.  You wanna prevent her from falling on her face by all means help her.  Remember, you’re the one worried about spreading the gospel of leadership to everybody.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Ah you got me back.

Mother Sayer:  You’re a chip off the ole gangsta too I see.

Sarah W. Certainty:  Yeah we both have thick skins.

Mother Sayer:  My child I want more women like us.  We can only fight so far.  There has to be women bringing up the rear when we are called off the battlefield for good.


(Mother and Sarah share a few more laughs and smiles as they close the office for the day.  Mother thinks a few wins a week for a business is wonderful.  A few minds evolving every day on good ground brings that exponential change like that spear soaring through the air.  It will land farther and farther each time it is hurled aloft by well-rounded and well-adjusted leaders.  Everything can’t just be about the numbers Mother puts it.

What about the growth of your people?  What about their mental health?  Human beings require many things in life and one of the most important of them is knowing they are valued and needed.  Structure adds a sense of purpose as efforts are wasted if good order is missing.  There has to be discipline where goals are concerned.  Mother knows many things are needed by people, and as a mother of two children singleness of thought is misguided as she knows each child is different.

All her people need different things at the ARC.  She is adept at sensing them because she was never prey to single track thinking.  As a nurse you have to be able to multitask.  Don’t let up off your people she tells herself.  Too many people in their lives have already done that.  Know your people well and always steer them to what the ARC is in business to accomplish.  To make a profit not just in monetary terms, but in terms of her people and their growth.  The people bring to her the more powerful satisfaction and that’s the energy she wants to keep pumping up.)…..


Give Me That Ole Time What?

Declaration of Humanity 4.0…This founding statement is different.  This one is being written in clarification of an ongoing threat of fear that ‘evil’ seems to offer more rewards than ‘good’ ever will, and more overtly the verbal Christians are flocking more openly to evils promise of fortune.  While this trend is alarming I must counter with this fact.  Evil has never gone out of season in America.  Good is more than a match for evil, but the righteousness of good can only be activated from a straight line.  What is that straight line you ask?  It is the center of every human beings’ known universe.  If it is straight it is a ‘Heartline’.  A heartline from the heart to the soul because when our heart stops our deeds will be called into account.  The ‘JUDGE’ will know what you did and not what you meant to do…

ISSUE 1:  Good for the Paul and Silas

Give me that ole time religion, give me that ole time religion, give me that ole time religion it’s good enough for me.  Wow that sure brings back some memories of church going.  The pulsating vibrations of voices and instruments impacting your mind and body as it sweeps you away to a piece of time spent walled off from the hatred of your fellow man.  Maybe that is why I’m not condemning all Christians more specifically White Christians.  Some White Christians may just enjoy being naïve to the fact that inaction against evil is still judgeable. 

When ‘Pap Paw’ come in from working the slaves a few centuries ago and plays with his sons he taught them about Black folk.  How Black folks really weren’t human beings which allowed him to rape the female kind and break the wills of the male kind.  I mean he probably stated that even the U.S. Constitution said it.  ‘A Negro is 3/5 of a White person’ and therefore is not entirely a human being like we are son.  Boy you can do anything to them and nobody gonna say anything about it.  I can do whatever I want with my ‘property’.  Give me that ole time religion its’ good enough for me (sing the refrain as you jut out your bottom teeth in a southern twang).

Now why on God’s green Earth would White folks more specifically those that have looked the other way for centuries.  I mean the technique of ignoring horrors and blood curdling screams of human suffering is probably a truly refined cliffs note by now.  I trust I’m making sense to everyone that suffers from a ‘complex’ about hate groups and the exposed subtle nature of quiet agreement.  Let’s be honest Republicans.  The political party of Republicans have used evil in subtle forms throughout its’ founding.

The ole state of Alabama where I grew up is no longer trying to conceal their thirst for hatred to live on because fortune is in it for them.  I can’t believe how long this still needs to be said.  The Confederacy lost the Civil War!  Haters if you want to continue worshipping losers do it within the walls of your home.  Alabama is creating fines and crimes for their removal.  How about this citizens of Alabama and elsewhere?  Make those Republicans pay a fee for the State property those statues and idols to hatred stand on.  The land belongs to every citizen right?  Put it to a vote and let the people decide.  Let the conscience make the choice.

Make no mistake or interpret my digital periodicals erroneously.  The commerce of hatred is very well fed in America.  Don’t be discouraged those of us doing the right thing every day.  The battle is joined.  One voice has always been allowed to speak about all the other races in America.  The haters now know that monopoly is destroyed forever.  Everybody else whose voices have been muzzled are now speaking the true nature of who they are.  No more being defined by White men.

Give me that ole time religion kept so many people of color secure for a piece of time.  Now we are demanding to be secure outside the walls of a Church.  ‘It was good for the Paul and Silas, it was good for the Paul and Silas, it was good for the Paul and Silas, it’s good enough for me’.  No more longing for the ‘ole’ days haters as those days are finally being put out to die in the Sun on parched ground.  Nevertheless I know evil will always find a way to hate.  Maybe going after the LGBTQ and transgender community will get Republican voters hatred stirred up once again.

Give me that ole time what?  Oh by the way, ‘evil’s’ line is always crooked.  Didn’t want you to finish reading this and think I forgot to define what sort of line evil walks.  It’s crooked.



The STRIPES of Healing

Founding Statement:

This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own.  The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty.  Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience.  “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.

Issue 17:  A First for Black History Month Circa 2022

What events preceded the 1st of February 2022 in the long struggle of Black people in America.  This digital edition is a look back and a celebration of how events in U.S. History unfolded and propelled Black people to these days in time. Fittingly it started with slavery and the wholesale dehumanization of Black people.  It devolved from that fact to formalizing slaves as property and wholly subject to the rules of who owns them.  Which enviably leads to the mindset that they can’t learn, think, or reason as did White men.

Oh we’re just getting started.  Let’s fast forward to the 20th century and the struggle for inclusion into all parts of America.  Black men couldn’t be scientists as that would require higher learning or ingenuity to bring ideas to life.  The Black man that made peanuts into peanut butter.  Black men were thought of as incapable of flying warplanes.  I wonder what the judgment of that exclusion was.  Huh?  If Black men were believed to be lesser human beings then why experiment on us with Syphilis hoping that the results from the test subjects would be used to cure other human beings?  Yeah that’s a contradiction if ever there was one.

A Black man couldn’t learn medicine to the point where he masters it and performs the first open heart surgery.  Huh?  A Black woman couldn’t develop the covid 19 vaccine?  C’mon man, stop playing around.  You know Black people can’t possibly understand the material let alone finish over a decade of schooling.  A Black man sitting on the U.S. Supreme is ludicrous!  No way in Hell he could possess the intelligence to become a scholar of the law.  Impossible!  Black people elected to every government office in the land of the free and the home of the brave.  I’d say that was outrageous for anyone to even suggest a Black person has the capacity to craft laws and abide by them.

Oh my goodness a Black man will be elected President of the United States of America.  Clutch your pearls evangelicals because it happened.  Now I have another event to ask you to consider.  A Black woman as Vice President of the United States.  Get the ‘truck’ out of here!  I need to get confirmation on this next possible stronghold to be destroyed at its base so it may topple down upon the heads of the despicable sewer scum shouting it.  It is this notion that a Black woman couldn’t possibly comprehend what it means to be a Supreme Court Justice let alone know anything about the law.  Black women of all women are incapable of even passing the bar exam to become a lawyer.

Listen to me, I don’t care what the haters say.  Every lying conniving men stealing cradle robbing evangelical immoral scoffing politician have made known their thoughts about Black people for hundreds of years.  What is different now?  It’s the same ole stale regurgitated supremacy inferiority complex spued by a certain group of hateful and vile White people unable to hold Black people in check.  It never worked.  It stalled Black people for a while but like a thunderous wave coming ashore this Black woman nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court will knock down this new barrier just like Black people have been doing for centuries!

Haters keep talking and keep putting up your barriers.  We’ll keep knocking them down!
