NADA-FOR THE BAILOUT

NADA-FOR THE BAILOUT Posted by Karl Anthony on September 29, 2008 at 8:13pm



Wow! Unbelievable! The bill went down to a political defeat 228-205. I cannot phantom why the bill wasn’t passed. According to Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the Financial Services Committee, “Because somebody hurt their feelings, they decided to punish the country." Rep. Frank was referring to the Republicans. This is ludicrous! This was a straight forward bill that was worked out by both parties.… Continue

The connection of American Segregation and African Apartheid...

The legacy of white Supremacy has a long and rich tradition that 21st century adults rarely acknowledge. In America the struggle for freedom is celebrated by the minority and loathed by the majority causing many people to disengage from a very relevant conversation. The term "race card" is readily avaliable to those who like to argue that race really isn't that important anymore. I liken this sentiment to the the big joker in a heated spades game at the family barbeque.Yeah I know what you're… Continue

THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW, THIS BROKEN VESSEL RESTORED

THE BAILOUT

Finally, the leaders of congress and the White House have come to an agreement concerning the $700 billion bailout. I, for one was absolutely stunned that the House Republicans would hold up such an important legislation from being passed. I have spoken to a number of people who are against the bailout; and the polls taken nationwide have proven this also. However, if the bailout doesn’t happen the situation which is already bad, will only get worst. I’m in no way inclined or in favor of… Continue

Day 9: Life Lessons Writing for A Purpose

We had only four participants today. The writing class consists mostly of men and the majority of them went out-of-town to a spiritual retreat. We still had four participants in the class. We spent the bulk of the session discovering where they were in their 12 Step NA Recovery process. Each of them identified which step they were on and reflected in their journals about that particular step. I also asked each of them to describe in writing what they are doing to work the 12 Step NA Recovery… Continue

MY POETRY

MY POETRY

Posted by Karl "The Pathfinder" Anthony on September 10, 2008 at 10:18pm



My poetry is unlike any other

It is harsh, it is cold, it is reality

It is not pretentious, no, not at all

My poetry speaks of the ills, that many

will dismiss and say it has a weird twist

But what is Poetry? If it is not dealing with my realism,

my socialism, my voice, my thoughts and daily action

My poetry is gang-bangers hanging on the street… Continue
