 mothers_day

Mother in you God gave a flower so rare,

one of its kind, 

love and beauty a mother,

and yes! she’s mine.

A rose without thorns, not a petal brown or torn,
My rose standing not tall but please know she’s standing straight to the heavens wall

Mother your love that never swayed the most precious and beautiful of love of all.

A beautiful flower that survived the worst kind of weather and yet in your spirit you had always remain the most sincere and the most delicate ever,

a rose with a fragrance, never, there could be none other,

On this day I declare to the world-Hey, world -please know this rose is my Mother!

A rose is picked and put to dry,

the beauty is still there,  none will ever doubt or deny. Thank You for the Love that You give, that inspires our world

Thank You Mother and have your day on this Day,

Thank You for the love that never dies.

Love and Peace, G.L. Greer Editor

The Slow Death of Neo-Conservatism and the Eurocentric Era

Posted on Updated on

Greer Front Banner 2016

Washington, DC is currently in the middle of Trump’s taco bowl diplomacy controversy-with Trump  facing disapproval ratings north of 70% among Hispanic voters, Donald Trump reached out Thursday, with a fork. He tweeted a photo of himself at his desk in Trump Tower, smiling and giving a thumbs-up, with a taco bowl in front of him. “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!” the tweet said. (pic, below)

Trump eat
Is this move defensible? Well- “Hispanic,” as defined by the Census Bureau, as well as by common sense, is not a race. It is rather a designation of immigrant provenance that has been applied in ways ever more bizarre as the years have passed. It classifies people by national language—not the language of the immigrant—so that a youngster from the Dominican Republic gets lumped together with an Indian from the Bolivian highlands (even if that Indian does not speak Spanish), not with a Haitian who grew up ten miles away (even if that Haitian does).

On the opposite side of the deep divide is the G.O.P or beter known as the Republican Party-known to many as a passionate core of true believers mostly American, mature whites, and armed with right wing values has contributed to record turnout numbers in the first wave of primary polls, and, despite a series of missteps from Trump, they’re not wavering in their support for the front-runner. In opposition to the swelling polls- According to the US Census the minority population rise is boiling again, with xenophobia against Arabs at a height, and Latinos, already the largest minority according to the latest US Census data–35.3 million strong.

“If Trump has the most delegates and they go with someone else, I’m out,” said Joe Geiger, a Trump supporter from Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Citing a study by Northwestern University psychologists Maureen Craig and Jennifer Richeson, Jamelle Bouie frets that white Americans who are Neocons will react to their future minority status with ever-more conservative leanings and angst, perhaps making the country’s future electorate as racially polarized. Here’s what the study found:

Using a nationally representative survey of self-identified politically “independent” whites, Craig and Richeson conducted three experiments. In the first, they asked respondents about the racial shift in California—if they had heard the state had become majority-minority. What they found was a significant shift toward Republican identification, which increased for those who lived closest to the West Coast.

Neocons represent a political movement born in the United States during the 1960s among Democrats who became disenchanted with the party’s domestic and especially foreign policy. Many of its adherents became politically famous during the Republican presidential administrations of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Neoconservatives peaked in influence during the administrations of George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush, when they played a major role in promoting and planning the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Prominent neoconservatives in the George W. Bush administration included Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle, and Paul Bremer. Senior officials Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. (below)

Classic American Errors Caused by Failings of Neoconservative Policy

1. False Premise for Going to Iraq War

2. 45 Million Americans Without Health Insurance

3. Controversial Assertion of Executive Power

4. Skyrocketing Deficit

5. Too close to the Edge on Torture

6. Politicization of the Department of Justice

7. No Robust, Sustained Alternative Energy Policy

8. Hurricane Katrina Exposed FEMA Woes

9. SEC Allows Investment Banks to Go Unregulated

10. No Child Left Behind: A Few Bumps in the Road

Trump with corn rolls

 

One has to wonder just how severe of a crisis will be posed to Republicans if Trump fails to claim the nomination. That’s because the Trump movement—risks alienating a motivated base of American supporters. If the G.O.P were smart then they should consider the “Browning of America,” and if the Trump Campaign were smart then they would do the same.

PEACE & LOVE, GLG

Burning Bush Moments in Life

Posted on Updated on

Greer Front Banner 2016.jpg

burning bush
_
Today, as I think about the many changes that my life has taken, I felt the need to share with my faith audience my platform that has helped me time and time again when learning from the moments in life that things seem dark and hopeless. Fear not because God has given you a plan.
 _
God doesn’t always speak to any of us in the way we wanted or even expected. If we turn to our bible we know Balaam never imagined hearing from God through the mouth of a donkey (Numbers 22:28) or Mary was very disturbed when Gabriel appeared at her doorstep, as she was to learn of the savior that she was to birth (Luke 1:26-28) also Moses didn’t expect to hear a voice coming from the burning bush in the desert.
Moses
Amazed that the Bush was on fire Moses decided to investigate, and although God made the first move-As a man it was left to Moses to engage, and receive the directions that God was reserving for his life.
_
I define the moments as “Burning Bush Moments”-so what about you? can you think about any experience that you would consider a “Burning Bush Moment,” Well, here is the good news- God may be trying to speak to you though any situation in life large, small, good, bad or even something we may think is insignificant.
_
Please note that there are times when God’s voice speaks though larger events as well. If we can compare these Moments to television -we would describe these moments as “HD or high definition.” A note from my personal struggle is when I ran from the calling to become a Pastor for many years, God saw fit to humble me to submit because the lives of those around me were effected. For example when my brother passed in 1994 after struggling with a long-term sickness.
 _
In summary God could be trying to speak to you though any means, TV, radio show, friends, family and more. It is up to all of us to tune our senses into what God is trying to tell us, because “Burning Bush Moments” come in life on a regular basis-while they can show up in many forms-one critical thing that I can guarantee you, they may not always make life easier, but they will always make life more meaningful.

Curbing Chicago Violence Project Editorial (Part One)

Posted on Updated on

Greer Front Banner 2016
While Gun violence affects society in many ways, including higher medical costs, reductions in quality of life because of fear of gun violence and stresses on the criminal justice system. The United States has the highest rate of gun-related injuries among developed countries, as well as the highest rate of gun ownership. Psychologists and other public health scientists are working to develop effective methods to reduce gun violence, but political opposition has created barriers to government support for  research.
images
Chicago has been plagued with violence in April 2016 alone there were 36 Murders
 
However, when curbing Chicago violence according to our partners who agree that all homicides-all murders represent a degree of human suffering – direct and indirect – that cannot be ignored. Attention must be paid to each life lost, not merely a selected but-our goal is to tell the story of every murder in the city, so that together we might fight the tendency to view homicides as just another rising or falling number, like mortgage rates or batting averages but the human story of tragic human lives lost, that adds weight down hard on an already struggling community.
 
In the days ahead it is the intent of http://www.oneworld01.com to help bring a sharp focus to the growing homicide level in Chicago, IL  it is our attention that if we can’t make the killing stop-we want to bring justice to the families, when that doesn’t work we want to help with the healing process. Also if the gun violence level in Chicago can come down then we can replicate the steps anywhere in the world.
 
There were 36 murders this past April, one more than in April 2015, the Chicago Police Department said this past Sunday. In the first four months of 2016, there have been 175 murders—51 in January, 43 in February, 45 in March and 36 in April, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.
 
The final homicide of the month was a man killed he got into a shootout with a teenager Saturday afternoon in the South Side Washington Park neighborhood.
WRAB
 

Over the next few weeks Freedom First International (We Rise Above Bullets) , The Violence Interrupters in partnership with the Guilty in Innocence Project other community groups-will begin serious conversations and initiatives around Chicago and Northwest Indiana on how to “stop the gun violence in Chicagoland” Please advise via inbox or comments section if you like to join this dialog or facilitate. Put the guns down Chicago!

In Mermoriam

We want to end with a photo memorial of all the lives lost to the tragedy Gun Violence.
