    Do we still have freedom of speech?

    in Politics Conservative

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”


     


    These 45 words make up the complete First Amendment to the U.S.  Constitution.  For many of us, they are the most important words ever strung into a complex sentence, because they’re the foundation for the unique American way of life.


    Only individually can we and do we, choose not to hate, or not to be ignorant, or not to be racist, no law or legislation can do that, or choose that, for us. It is too great an infringement on our Liberty, to have to be selective of every word that we choose, just so we do not offend anyone. People do not have to listen to people they find offensive, or read what people have written if they find it offensive, or watch entertainment they find offensive, or look at art they find offensive. They have the power and the right to censor for themselves, but not others or society. We need to get back to the place where we once were in this Country. When people were willing to fight and die to give liberty and freedom to everyone, and not just the people they agreed with.


     


    Freedom of Speech is valued by most people as a God given right that are so important, it must be guaranteed by the government. Americans after the Revolutionary War decided they did not want the government restricting their speech. In general, at the time of the writing of the Constitution, the concern about protecting free speech was in regard to protecting political speech.

    Our History " I Have A Dream"

    in Politics Conservative

    Today we will make Rev. Martin Luther king Dream come true. Uniting as one, not by color but, by content of your character.  Starting with the greatest speech of all “I have a dream” making it personally from us to you...


    John Newton...a slave ship owner gave us a great black spiritual called Amazing Grace in which he used only 5 black keys on the piano. What this song reveals to us is that we are all God's children, black, white, yellow, brown and through his graces we will all find our true spirit and dedication to the Christian faith. We cannot lose sight of the core value of our faith, as we are all connected by God's Amazing Grace.


    I have a dream that little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.


    I have a dream today.


    “I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.”


    And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we're free at last!" ? Martin Luther King Jr., I Have A Dream

    "I have a dream...You have a dream...We all have a dream!!!"

    in Politics

    "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation."  So said Henry David Thoreau.  However, he had a dream that one day Americans will rise up to live out the words that all men are created equal.  I am speaking, of course about the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Some 50 years later, we must ask ourselves if we have lived up to that dream!!!  Some will say that with the election of the first African-American President, twice, that we as a people have "made it" to the "promised land." Others, after the events of the past six months, will say that we still have a way to go.  It is a matter of opinion; we at the Coffee Club are asking, "What is your opinion???" Thoreau would like to know, "What is your dream???"  You may call us at 646-595-3275.

    American Workers Have Been Left Behind!

    in Politics

    America workers have been left behind and not enough of the right people care. Not enough people are working to get back to a full workforce. Who are the right people who should care enough to do bring America back to a full workforce of 160 million people? It is the job seekers, CEOs, GOP and DEMs. Politicians are prancing around doing their own things knowing those who need jobs are depending on them yet all politicians can see is more money for self. Those with jobs who can make a difference have moved on to the 2016 games of politics. Envision a man who has deserted his family and is seen all over town with everyone doing all sorts of things while his family waits for his return to supply the needs of the home. This is America today. This has to end and it is up to the job seekers to end it. Put on your walking shoes America and storm every offical building standing because of tax payers until relief is spelled with your name on a paycheck with liveable wages. America has left workers behind and the only reason I see is more care for money than for people, and this is what's known as greed, the love of money greed which leads to all evils
