    Ex Husband Goes Hannibal Lecter on Douglas County Family

    in Education

    Shalom and Salaam everyone. Tonight I just wanna talk briefly about a horrible serial murder/suicide that took place Monday, February 09, 2015 in Douglas County Atlanta, in what is described as a very nice, quiet surburban sub division. Sadly this was a Black African American Family of seven and the killer was the adult female residents ex Husband. smdh

    Just wanna talk about it because somehow I feel there where signs Latoya Andrews simply ignored that had she been more in tune and not, lets say, "Suck it up and leave us alone (*IGGA)." Her and her family would still be alive right now. 

    This is not a blame game but it is about awareness and when it is not good to push a desperate and unstable persons buttons. All of we are capable of snapping, turning up, going postal or whatever you wanna call it.

    So knowing the signs when someone aint taking NO MORE., may just SAVE your LIFE or your families.

    Waller County Sheriff officials said they believe Bland died in her cell the mor

    in Religion

    Waller County Sheriff officials said they believe Bland died in her cell the morning of July 13, from asphyxiation with a trash bag, three days after she was pulled over for not using her turn signal and then arrested for allegedly assaulting an officer.


    The Harris County medical examiner ruled her death a suicide. But Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said the 28-year-old’s death would be treated “just as it would be a murder investigation.”


    “There are many questions that are being raised here in Waller County,” Mathis said. “It needs to be a thorough and exhaustive review.”


    Most of those questions and conspiracy theories were dispelled on July 28, when prosecutors released video of Bland walking through the jail and posing for her mugshot during the booking process:


    Before the video was released, the strongest evidence was Bland’s voicemail to a Texas friend, LeVaughn Mosley, from her cell. In the voicemail posted by WLS-TV, Bland said, “how did switching lanes with no signal turn into all of this?”

    I’d like to start by saying that every statement you read here is a 100 percent authentic quote.You can check out every word and phrase on the internet. The only bits you won’t find already published are my own interconnecting comments. As the editor of the article, I have allowed myself the privilege of taking part in this imaginary “debate”. If the overall effect is at times surrealistic,  this is intentional. The entire 9/11 debate, after all, is an exercise in surrealism replete with the most bizarre Alice in Wonderland logic  The mere fact that the chief suspects of the 9/11 crime have been allowed to investigate themselves makes this only too clear.  The aim of the debate is to pose and answer the question: Who did 9/11?   The politicians and bankers always lie! So if they tell you they’re trying to solve your problem you have to ask, "From where did the problem arise in the first place?” How is it that year after year the politicians carefully and diligently steer our collective boat of destiny ever nearer to the rapids of destruction?” Please remember that the government, backed by the banking elite, who after all OWN the governments, GET EXACTLY WHAT THEY PAY FOR, if not it would not be a very good bargain, would it, and they would change the system. So when you ask, “Why don’t they ever change the system?” then now you know. The agenda rolls along, the plans go ahead. You become poorer. They become richer and you do nothing because you are worked to death and are too tired following the “agenda”.Listen and share the Free American shows with your friends and family and support it by making a donation at www.freeamerican.com

    Live Your Music - Margaux Joy and Guest Robert Crane 07/29/15

    in Lifestyle

    I am happy to have Robert Crane as my guest today!


    Robert Crane has been the Marin county manager for the West Coast Songwriters, a Non Profit Organization, for the past 3 years. He hosts a monthly songwriting contest for the West Coast Songwriters at FENIX Supper Club.


    Robert says he only wrote 2 songs from age to age 8 through 50. But at age 50, a light went on and opened that songwriting flood gate. He says his wife Mary gets the credit for inspiring him to write, which is another story…


    We'll be talking about songwriting, the West Coast Songwriters events, and the music Robert hears calling him and I'll be talking with him about a new song he's written for the NGAMBA Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary Benefit Concert. You'll get to hear about Chris Austria and how you can help raise money for the Chimpanzee Sanctuary.


    You can find out more about the West Coast Songwriters by visiting their website at: www.westcoastsongwriters.org
