Linda Wattley
Today, God has awakened her to a new and extremely important message to share with the world. We must become more conscious of PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; she is presenting her newest work: Soldier with a Backpack, Living and Dying Simultaneously edited by Shari Love. This work reveals the reality of the impact this disorder have on our veterans and civilian people’s lives. It takes you deep within the soul of the inner dynamics of this disorder. Stress and Trauma is guiding us farther away from love. Truth and understanding will guide us to self-love and love for our fellowman.

You do not have to be a racist to know only a white man can take America down because they will not let anybody else do it.

How ironic is it that our current Government thrives on downplaying people of color because they feel they are a threat to the survival of America when it is the government that is the actual d... continue reading
Trump Tweets are Preparing America for a Revolution
America is being punished by mentally deranged white people because they can't comprehend how a black man became president of the United States.

I do not know if the United States of America will recover after the obvious setup Donald Trump is implementing right before our eyes. If we do not learn anything else, Am... continue reading
Donald Trump is Obsessed with Barrack Obama
America has its white man back in his White House again. So far what has this done for our children? Do they understand right from wrong and good and bad?

When you have a man who can have anything he wants in the world, you have a person who gets it no matter how illogical it is. I just cannot believe America f... continue reading
America is Suffering from Mixed Signal Syndrome
What is Mixed Signal Syndrome? The paralyzing of the mind's ability to choose best because of mixed signals, twisting feelings and thoughts. America is dying people, wake up before it is too late.

Look at what is happening in the world today. I am not just talking about the horrors of the White House but our whole... continue reading
Racism is the Fall of America
A house divided against its self shall not stand. I cannot imagine how stupid and ignorant so many people are about what is actually happening in our country today. Do people not realize that as long as racism is accepted in America we will not progress? Do people understand how far along we would be as a nation if ... continue reading
Pope Francis Takes Trump Down
As I observe the race to the White House, I am appalled to how our candidates are presenting themselves. I can imagine how the world is seeing us today as it is witnessing our choices of a leader for the United States of America. I am sure they are shaking their heads and doing their dance because we are no threat to... continue reading
Iowa Political Stampede
Last night I chose to allow CNN to direct my focus in watching the several political escapades taking place in Iowa. For sure it was overwhelmingly a shame scene. The desperation our politicians carry with them to be heard these days is quite embarrassing. There was not one politician or celebrity figure appearing... continue reading
GOP Debaters Revealed Our Weaknesses
Trump along with some of the other debaters ended on a good note feeling like they had a lot of fun and that things went well for them. Fun? Was it supposed to be fun?

I decided I would take another chance and watch the GOP debates. Thanks to ISIS they had a direction. The first part of the debate was mainly about... continue reading
What Do You Deserve?
We tend to be so consumed in our everyday routines of life that we forget our own self-value.

Days appear to be going by now at a faster pace than usual. It is as though we do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish all we desire. Because of this apparent push in time, we neglect to consider whether we are expe... continue reading
Love Will Not Be Denied
We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love. The lack of love breeds a ground for war. Where there is war, we find desperation. Each soul is born to bear love. No love means no life. The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love. There is no way we can mo... continue reading
Who is Supporting Ben Carson?
Trump single-highhandedly created a smokescreen over them that had them exposing each other’s underhanded tendencies causing him to dominate the polls.

I hear Ben Carson is leading in the GOP polls with Donald trump following right behind him. I can’t help but wonder who are these people backing Carson. Seriously... continue reading
Will Portraying Toughness Get Hillary Clinton Elected?
When you look at each one of them, they appear to be missing something in their lives. Is it love and a need for attention? Or is it a need to satisfy the ego? For sure it is not to tend to the needs of the people of this country. It seems the election of President Barrack Obama has put people in a state of the Tow... continue reading
Joe Biden loves himself
What you say Joe? I am too handsome for this? Yes, you are.

[pic1]My heart was very glad today when Joe Biden announced he was not running for the president of the United States in 2016. Any good soul has no business in the White House. Weeks have gone by while people waited to hear whether he was going to run... continue reading
Boy Did the Democrats Learn From the Republicans
When I first glanced at the democratic presidential candidates last night, the first thing I noticed, Hillary Clinton has been placed in the middle giving her power to be mommy dearest . That setup allowed her to set the temple to how the debate was going to be handle. First of all, we will not be fighting among ours... continue reading
Anger Needs Your Body
If you’re mad about something and you’re not going to take it anymore, you’re feeling anger, a strong emotion you experience when you think someone has done you wrong. If you want to scream and kick, you’re feeling anger.

Anger is a powerful emotion that people feel from time to time when someone or something frustr... continue reading

When a Single Mother Raises Sons Alone
I am single and no where close to having a relationship. It seems I have a difficult time settling for just anyone just because he is a man. My dilemma is I can not seem to experience the meeting of a man stronger and prepared to be a giving person than my sons.

When I look at my life today, I am thankful for having... continue reading
America the Home of PTSD
I woke up this morning thankful to be alive. God allowed me to come out of my sleep and have a new day! I turn on my television to quickly learn gunfire once again killed innocent people. An innocent child at home with her family shot in the chest. Innocent students murdered by bullets from the hands of a quiet gun... continue reading
Pope Francis arrival perfect timing to diffuse the GOP strategy
But when the Pope came to America, he stole the ears of the multitude offering a new way to be that many people yearn to live by.

Pope Francis came to America at a perfect time. The GOP's were already struggling in trying to connect with the American people. Donald Trump was the winning savior at the time because ... continue reading
America breeds post-traumatic stress disorder
We live in a world that promotes Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Lifestyles dictate for us to push and push all day long just to say we are not lazy and we are doing the best we can.

Each time we walk out the door of our homes, we enter into a real live war zone. People are so stressed out, unhappy, and unhealthy be... continue reading
Republican Debate Puppet Contest
Several days have gone by since I observed the Republican Debate and I am still shaking my head because America is in deep trouble. We are too divided to survive.

I was so sure Donald Trump had plummet after this last debate. After walking right into a human ambush of his own American brethren, he was seen... continue reading
What I saw during the GOP debate, it wasn't Trump, it was racism
Watching the GOP debate reminded me of what is sad about America. Our president is and always will be identified as a puppet pulled by the strings of the rich, racists, Senate and Congress.

They called all that negativity going on during the debate debating to win the highest position in America. Serious... continue reading
Donald Trump the New Savior
At first when Donald Trump made his debut to run for president, I thought it was a circus joke. This man does not have anything else to do. Being a rich man, he has dipped into every world cup possible in the world. He has to be really bored to step out into the political arena so I thought.
I am a Democrat... continue reading
When I listened to President Obama give his State of the Union Address, tears came to my eyes. Here was a man who genuinely cares about America. This man loves his wife and children. He did not become President for the same reasons most men become President. He became one to show America how sick we really are.

A... continue reading
Is it just in my mind or is it true that basketball has become a ballerina sport?
Watching the Cavaliers play the Hawks was a stone bore for me not because there wasn’t no talent or skills on the players part but because there was no self-challenge of the players. I’ve seen more self-challenging players watching video... continue reading
We are losing sight of the power of leadership that is why we are falling as a nation.  Whoever is the head leads the body.  What does this mean?  It means if we have a devil for a leader, we will be treated like we are already in hell.  Not saying this is what we face today.  But I will say I ... continue reading
As we near the choosing of a new President of the United States, the world is going to see the heart of America.  Already the old tactics of attempting to control our minds is in action.  We are to see too much Obama and not enough McCain.  Also, we are to entertain the strong possibility of assassinatio... continue reading
As we near election, we are listening to two primary candidates, John McCain and Barrack Obama.  I am sure I am not the only one shocked that Obama has made it this far.  For me this is a miracle.  When think how far the African American man has come in America, this is a very eerie thing for me because ... continue reading
Forget about Clinton, Obama and Mclain.  They are not gods nor are they responsible for our future.  We the American people are responsible for the hell we are in.
If we ever are going to have peace, equality and the pursuit of happiness without corruptible restraints, we are going to have to hold leadership... continue reading
They call it politics
You know I am so ashamed of the progress of the conscious of humanity. I was always taught that when you have to put others down to make yourself look good then you are lacking something very valuable and you have hidden low self-esteem. Why does this not apply to our presidential candidates? Why are people ignoring th... continue reading
After the huge Tuesday extravaganza for our presidential candidates, I was left with a question.  Why does America really want a woman president?  Being that I personally do not prefer a woman president, I had to wonder why anyone in the world would want one.  The first thought that came to my mind was v... continue reading
Today, I see the confusion of identifying what it takes to be a man.  There was a time all a man had to do was provide for his family while his wife and children remain home.  Now, women can provide for themselves, the role of the man has experienced misplacement.  What does it actually takes to be a rea... continue reading
I am not a great source of political information but I do love words.  Now when I want to understand a word I will look it up in the dictionary.  I figured if I am going to understand why we want Iraq to be just like us, America, I need to know just what that means.  Especially since ir requires human sa... continue reading
I am always the first to admit I am not much about political issues but I do have feelings about some aspects of it.  How could I not have some kind of views? The candidates are making sure the American people are conscious of them.  I have seen their faces and I tell you, some of them are looking very weary.... continue reading
I don't know about you but this Christmas Season did not have the spirit of Christmas as I remembered it could have. Happy Holidays didn't do it for a lot of people and it showed up in the atmosphere. To think our dictators took time out to remove Merry Christmas from celebrating consciousness after all of these years,... continue reading
When you look at a country spending billions of dollars in a war in Iraq, you can't help but wonder what we are thinking.  Billions of dollars to protect us from terrorists or is it insurgents?  I'm not sure; I just know lives and our hard earned money is headed FAR AWAY FROM THIS COUNTRY because mankind has ... continue reading
Sometimes I wonder why people find it necessary to mar their skin with tattoos.  What are they saying?  Are they revealing to us that they would like to join in on the "What's Happening Today" list.? I believe it goes much deeper than that.
I personally believe people are marring their skin with tattoos due ... continue reading
People were embracing the philosophy THE SECRET like it was something new and powerful. Yet, the Bible simplified its bottom line with one word, FAITH. So easy people tend to think they have the formula to live a life of luxury and prestige. While we are busy thinking we understand life and its purpose, we are missing ... continue reading
I hear celebrities and very successful people tell the world they owe everything they are today to God.  Even our President says God is whom he depends on daily.  My question is:  Would we have known they believed in God if they had not told us?
I've watched great gifts from God given to ... continue reading
We are now allowed to join together consciously and experience giving thanks. Before this special day, we were being conditioned to meet worldly requirements that mainly generated stress. If this holiday season do not teach us anything else, we should be able to see how we are being controlled by the world.Now, we can ... continue reading
I find it amazing how we put our trust in sources that do not have our best interest at heart.  I was shopping today to buy whole chickens.  The package I picked up read:  "All natural no hormones added."  Am I to understand all the other chickens in the store have hormones added?   I look... continue reading
I am not the greatest source for political information but I do love words.  Now when I want to understand a word I will look it up in the dictionary.  I figured if I am going to understand why we want Iraq to be just like us, America, I need to know just what that means.  Especially since it r... continue reading
We are all concerned about the future.  It is not because of inferiority or superiority of various races the world has become an overly desperate place to live.  It is in this cancerous state due to greedy, egotistic, selfish and loveless people taking God’s world and destroying it. 
The racist... continue reading
What kind of life is there for blacks among blacks when people are lost in a maze of deception?
This is the question I had to ask my self as I realized two young African American females preyed upon me as though I was not a human being.  How do women, who are supposed to be a mother-figures, come up wit... continue reading
Anal Sex Has Become a Dominant Means of Gratification
Today we exist in a world filled with lonely people who have not developed their total being.  They are conscious only of their lustful desires to have orgasms.  There is no end to what measure they will go for gratification.  The Bible tells us we are to be more than the animals.  The sexual bondag... continue reading
Ministerial Seduction
There are times when I am amazed of how a woman
will allow herself to be so engulfed in a man to a point she does not
consider the logic behind it. There is a drawing force that automatically draws a woman to a man. It gets a hold of her and takes her to another world. Some
people say it was activated in the Gard... continue reading
I Wished My Father Knew
When I think about Father’s Day, I can’t help but to think of the only father I ever knew. He was a man so loved by the women and his family. He was highly respected by everyone. He had a natural charm that would make you want to be around him especially when he would speak. His voice would make you want to listen ... continue reading

What about Homosexuality?
This country amazes me how it decides what is an issue. Homosexuality has become such a hot item. It
is as though we have just discovered that same sexes are attracted to
each other and it has to stop before it gets out of control. The Bible tells us, there is nothing new under the sun. Homosexuality is here to s... continue reading
Cigarette beings
you ever really watched a cigarette lover inhale cigarette smoke? Have
you noticed the instant satisfaction experienced? The cigarette is led
to the lips with an opening of the mouth to literally suck the smoke
out of the tobacco. Once it has passed the throat, the smoke travels
into the chest cavity and fill... continue reading
Obesity in America
remember when I was a child seeing kings on a throne whether real or
make believe, they were always pot-bellied and big. Fat during that
time represented richness in life. When the king was served the palace
meals, there was always an abundance of food for all attending. Greek
art statues revealed the waistline ... continue reading
Rich Folks Games
First of all in order for rich folks to have a game, there has to be some poor folks. Rich among rich can only stand each other so long because egos are always working towards more.
What happens once a rich man has consumed all he can consume? Does he head towards controlling the lives of others or does he go somewh... continue reading
