"It starts with the neighborhood".Mr. Millionaire, made this statement. And this statement can't be more right. Everyday across America neighborhoods are in good shape. Attractive, secure, and of course representative of the persons living there, The rich.
Everyday across America neighborhoods are not in good shape. Eyesores, insecure, and of course representative of the persons living there, The poor.
And everyday across America these neighborhoods are targeted by those who make money off these neighborhoods, both these neighborhoods. There are serious problems in America, brought to us by greed which manifests itself in the poorest of neighborhoods. Because of poverty, there is a spillage of things not so good. These not so good things are costly, from our most valuable treasure, lives, to destruction and thief of personal property. Is it any wonder safety is poor neighborhoods are lacking just as money is lacking in poor neighborhoods. Safety does indeed start with the neighborhood. Safety issues we can fix across America. Let's do it America. Let's make our children / residents safe. Let's start with Mr. Millionaire giving jobs to residents in poor neighborhoods. That's the start that's missing most. JOBs!

Notorious in the Neighborhood
Sex and Families Across the Color Line in Virginia, 1787-1861
"Laws and cultural norms militated against interracial sex in Virginia before the Civil War. Nonetheless, it was ubiquitous in urban, town, and plantation communities throughout the state. In Notorious in the Neighborhood, Joshua Rothman examines the full spectrum of interracial sexual relationships under slavery-from Thomas Jefferson, Sally Hemings, and the intertwined interracial families of Monticello and Charlottesville, to commercial sex in Richmond, the routinized sexual exploitation of enslaved women, and adultery across the color line.
White Virginians allowed for an astonishing degree of flexibility and fluidity within a seemingly rigid system of race and interracial relations, Rothman argues, and the relationship between law and custom regarding racial intermixture was always shifting. As a consequence, even as whites never questioned their own racial supremacy, the meaning and significance of racial boundaries, racial hierarchy, and ultimately of race itself always stood on unstable ground--a reality that whites understood and about which they demonstrated increasing anxiety as the sectional crisis intensified."
Joshua Rothman is Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Alabama, where he is also Director of the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South.

In this podcast, Janis is talking with Zilber Family Foundation President Susan Lloyd about the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative, a partnership between the Zilber Family Foundation and the Walnut Way Conservation Corp. in Lindsay Heights, Journey House in Clarke Square, Layton Boulevard West Neighbors, LISC Milwaukee, and United Neighborhood Centers of Milwaukee. We will hear about how residents, educators, business owners, and nonprofit leaders have come together to envision the future of their neighborhoods with support from the Zilber Family Foundation and others for the highly engaged community work involved with completing and implementing quality of life plans for each neighborhood. Grassroots Grantmakers is partnering with the Zilber Family Foundation to bring its highly regarded On the Ground learning exchange to Milwaukee in 2013 (September 9-12) - with in person visits to the neighborhoods that have been involved in the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative and conversations with people who have been involved. This podcast will be a good introduction to this work for those who are interested in attending.
We have several things to discuss tonight. As water is the most important part of your preps, you need to make sure you have safe clean water you can drink. In a down grid situation, no water is safe to drink unless you yourself have purified it or it came from an unopened bottle of water.
You need to be able to use any of several methods and usually combining methods to insure water purity.
Also want to discuss The Appleseed "Liberty Seed" program, and the "Appleseed Neighborhood" program. With ammunition still hard to find, and expensive for a lot of folks, these two programs allow us to get out the same Appleseed message we talk to folks about at shooting Appleseeds.
And I want to talk to folks about the recent documentary covering the TWA Flight 800 downing. Fifteen years after the TWA aircraft was mysteriously brought down in the Atlantic, folks are breaking their silence about the event.
Government investigators, eyewitnesses, former U.S. Government Agents/employees are telling their stories of FBI falsifying information, destroying evidence (on camera) intimidating witnesses and lying over and over to senate investigators. All to protect who? To cover up What? Why?
I bring this up not to simply draw attention to this one specific event, but because this has become the norm for our government. Our government holds it's citizens in such disgusting contempt that it lies in bold face font, completely sloppy and incompetent lies, they do not care if you believe them or not, because they are the government. What are YOU going to do about it?
What can we do about it? The government seems to have hit upon a smashing tactic of dosing the public with mass multiple scandals since it has learned that if they just pile them up, there is no way anyone will take them seriously.
We have to fix this.
Hope to see you there!
