Divided or United

To be completely honest with you i think alot of people in america are just becoming more divided for one reason INFLUENCE, media influence like msnbc foxnews is to overwhelming like when i watch the Rachel maddow show or the Glenn Beck show i just wonder where journalism is in the 21st century, it's unfortunate that political  partisanship is just the main headline in our media now days, now days we argue about things that is so unnecessary to argue about like race, you would think that electing the first african american man as a president of the united states would have done something to remove racial arguments of all kinds. On august 28 Glenn Beck led a march on dc to restore honor or remember the i have a dream speech made by Martin Luther King J.r then there was Al Sharpton leading another march on dc where there where mostly african americans marching with him, to be honest what al sharpton should have done was call glenn beck and say you know lets understand one thing this is a day where we don't need to be divided but we should celebrate and remember the dream as one.

Complicated Case

More than a year after Michael Jackson's death, the pop icon's former personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was in court Monday (August 23) where a judge finally set a preliminary date of January 4, 2011, in the cardiologist's involuntary-manslaughter trial. Murray has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of involuntary manslaughter and has admitted to giving Jackson propofol, a strong anesthetic usually used during surgery but allegedly employed by chronic insomniac Jackson as a sleep aid. Murray's lawyers have said the physician did not administer any drugs that "should have" caused Jackson's death. The investigation into his death was equally lengthy, lasting more than eight months, after which Los Angeles prosecutors charged that Murray gave the King of Pop a lethal combination of propofol and other painkillers and sedatives in the hours before the singer was found dead in his rented Los Angeles mansion on June 25, 2009. Murray faces up to four years in prison if convicted. After hearing from both sides in the case at the January court date, the judge, Michael Pastor, will determine if there is enough evidence to mount a full trial. Jackson's mother and father, Katherine and Joseph, were in court on Monday, according to Radar Online, sitting in the front row as Judge Pastor set the preliminary hearing date. Pastor granted a protective order covering all evidence in the criminal case, meaning it cannot be released to anyone other than the lawyers, paralegals and investigators in the case. Murray's defense team reportedly asked for access to three fluids collected by the coroner's office, including ones taken from syringes and an IV tube to re-examine test results. Pastor ruled that the coroner's office must preserve the samples, and if defense attorneys and prosecutors cannot agree on the request, he will schedule a hearing on the matter. After court let out, a group of Jackson supporters gathered and sang an impromptu verse that featured the lines, "Conrad Murray is a cold man," while holding up signs that read "Justice for Michael Jackson" and "Love Unites Us, Peace Drives Us, Judgment Day 4 All."

2010 America

Hey all of you out there reading this blog, accept it or not we have a african american president for the first time in history of our country i"m proud but this means that it came to a time for us to move on from being a country that in a way have been sort of divided racially and by culture i"m a christian i don"t believe in homosexuality, but i"v always been neutral in abortion we need to learn to be people of one nation under GOD i"m tired of hearing people say the black church or the white church there is no such thing as a white church or a black church, we have a lot influence from the media really the news media but thats only just our freedom to express what we want thats call"d freedom of speech. What about our president what about the issues we face in this country, like health care or the war in iraq and the war in afghanistan or what about the real estate crisis or one we all might not be to happy with wall street, president barack obama signed a $787  billion bill in to law last year now i will tell you the truth i did not really think this bill would make a big difference in our economy but the government could come up with better ideas but we also play a role in this the role we play is to be faithful and come up with ideas on ways to save invest and spend our money wisely. If you where to ask me when do i see our country coming back to be a prosperous nation again well i don"t think anybody can predict when things will get better but i will tell you we will get better as a country as a nation and as a society.
