Burn, Baby Burn!
Well...Tennessee has come up with a new way to punish people who don't pay their bills. Yup! Burn, baby, burn.
The firemen watched this man's house burn down to the ground and didn't lift a finger to save it. The firemen didn't even splash a bucket of water on it. Gone are all of this man and his families possession, their pets, and the house. The bill was only $75.
In case of failure to pay a bill does this apply if people are trapped in the burning house too? I pray that this policy does not spread to any other states. However, leave it up to Glen Beck and those crazy folks on the right it could happen. According to Glen you don't want your neighbor sponging water off you that you've paid for to put out his fire. Who cares if his house is burning down. He should have paid his bill. Smh!
I pray that this man and his family are blessed with a better house and more than he had before.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
