Though council woman Shields did not express the notion that this will be her last term, she has mentioned in the past that she does not intend to be a life time politician and this could be her last term as a council woman. Wouldn't it be surprising if upon her leaving no one vied for the position? Amazing, but it could happen. We just don't seem to be interested in achieving a fuller degree of empowerment.

Secondly, I'll present to you through specific examples the need for a dose of social and political viagra in the African American community. We don't have more, because we don't want more.
David Lee attained the virus through a homosexual relationship about ten years ago. David shared with us that since contracting the virus he has undertaken to things that he previously only though about doing; traveling being one of those things. HIV is not a death sentence.
Alice White contracted the disease from her husband, and has been trying to get the word out. She shared that her church and community has not been supportive, though she's gotten some support from other communities.
What have we been learning? Any relationship can result in HIV. Get tested. There are drugs that will sustain life. Have one partner. Partners should get tested together. If contracted, it is not a death sentence. Continue to enjoy life. Use condoms, when uncertain of partners sexual habits ---- This suggestion I don't like, but it's what came out of interview. We must meet people where they are. Well, I hope the last two programs have increased an awareness on HIV. I will post the entire interview with Mr. Lee and Mrs. White at www.esnipps.com. Thanks to Mr. Lee and Mrs. White for sharing a bit of their personal lives with us.

Tom's comment to address this matter was that the organizations were one, though their physical locations are different. The local Black VFW's have helped to establish White VFW's, and vise versa. My "take" on Commander Kimball's response was these organizations are as separate as the Black and White Churches; but who am I to formulate that "take". I've not served in the military, only the Boy Scouts. Nevertheless, the Call2Action, thank a soldier on this their day Veteran's Day 2007.

Asthma --- Lobelia and inflata herbs ---- help to stop asthma attacks.
Prostate Cancer --- stinking nettles, pumpkin seeds, saw palmetto. These herbs will help the prostrate gland. Strengthening the urinary tract will also help. This may be done by using the following herbs, uvarusi, peach bark, parsley, water with lemon, cranberry juice. Stay away from greasy foods.
How can we avert the flu --- vitamin C 4000 milligrams a day, use garlic. Garlic is a natural antibiotic. Ernie gave a recipe of a broth. The contents are garlic roots, keny pepper, olive oil, onion, and lemon. You can get the entire recipe by listen to the interview. (See link to the left to listen to part 3 of interview. Link is entitled Listen to Past Called2Action programs).
Great information. Thanks Ernie. Earnie may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

I was initially inspired to have Dr. Richardson join me after I heard on another radio station that Morgan State University, (MSU) was upset that the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) had gotten an Engineering program. The report stated that MSU's engineering program would suffer because there were now two HBCU's with engineering programs in the state of Maryland. When I heard that report it sounded so idiotic that I thought I should make an effort to have the President to address this. President Richardson shared with me that he was proud to hear that UMES had received this program. In his 23 years at MSU he has worked for all HBCU's to have program and to receive adequate funding to operate. In my own words, HBCU's get the shaft; they are given programs and inadequate funding and then they are evaluated as if funding was adequate. The Higher Education Commission, (MHEC), which is responsible for planning educational endeavors in the state of Maryland has assumed a political role, which has not worked in our interest. Again these are my words and not Dr. Richardson's. By the way MSU, unlike UMES is not a part of the University system. I wonder what role does the Chancellor have in this, by the way who appoints the Chancellor and who appoints MHEC? Do you catch where I'm headed. Thanks Dr. Richardson for sharing this information.

There's been information circulating that says the CIA was instrumental in having cocaine traverse our communities --- reason not discussed ---- don't know if that's important. Regardless, we do not have to give our minds to anything that will control it, whether it be drugs or diabolical ideas clothed in nuances of sophistication. Thanks Bill.

Arnold Patent, author of the book “You Can Have It All”, will be my guest this week (7/1/07) on the Called2Action radio program. We will be discussing the basic laws (principles) of the universe. These principles have been recognized for many years, but relatively few people know them and even fewer use them in their daily lives, per Mr. Patent. He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey TV program, and several of the major morning TV programs. He’s conducted these type trainings for 18 years throughout the
He will be joining me my telephone. This gentleman is dynamic in his thought process, and will have much to share that can be applied to everyone’s life.

On the other swing of the pendulum are those fathers who do just the opposite. They are absent in the lives of their children. Brother Dumas shared the following bits of information from the book "America Has Lost A Generation of Black Boys" by Phillip Jackson. Black men in Jail have become as common place as Apple pie. Other countries are looking at America and adopting America's social policies that encourage the incarceration and destruction of young men. More worst is the passivity that exist in the African American Community. On the program we discussed the Black Star Project, and how they are addressing the problem. We also discussed the church's role in this "mess". The statistics (see link) of our failures are astonishing. I should take time and cite the statistic here, but use the link above for more details. Great job Brother Dumas.
