Increase Africa's AIDS medication funding

The World recently celebrated the 91st birthday of Nelson Mandela , freedom fighter and former President of South Africa. Celebrities came to toast his life and work, starring in concert tributes that paid homage to his legacy. While Mandela is definitely worthy of praise, I’m sure he’d much rather the efforts put into planning the celebrations have been put toward reducing AIDS deaths in sub-Sahara Africa, where his people are suffering greatly.

Obama Administration must prosecute former President Bush & Former Vice President Cheney

It seems that hardly a week goes by that some major new revelation does not emerge which justifies the arrest and prosecution of former President Bush, former Vice President Cheney and other top officials of the disgraced Bush administration. It is becoming increasingly clear that Bush and Cheney and their sycophants lied, tortured, broke both U.S. and international law and now it seems illegally assassinated people for eight inglorious years.


Other than that Professor Gates how was the vacation

Is America "Post-Racial" yet?

They say: The historic election of President Barack Obama “has changed what it means to be Black in America”. The people talking that smack of America entering into “a Post-Racial society” are engaged in much more fantasy than fact.  The facts are: In June 2009 unemployment rates reported were: adult men (10 %), adult women (7.6 %), teenagers (24.0 %), whites (8.7 %), Asians (8.2%), Hispanics (12.2%), and Blacks (14.7 %).

Give grave diggers life

When family members lay a loved one to rest, they expect that the final resting place for their body will be the same as the one they envision for their soul: peaceful. So it’s no surprise that relatives of those buried in Burr Oak are outraged that the graves of their dearly departed have been desecrated all because of greed. Those who are responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law; life in prison for such deplorable behavior is not too much to ask.
