Can We Create An Electronic Voting System To Empower All Citizens To Participate In The Election Pr...
When Election Day rolls around, most people choose to stay home rather than take advantage of the opportunity to choose the people who create the laws that affect their lives. Why is that? Have people become so skeptical and hopeless that they no longer believe they have the power to choose individuals who will represent their interests? What would happen if we simplified the voting process and made it possible to go online, type in your social security number, and cast your ballot over a 2 week voting period? What if you could go online and rate each elected official, judges included, and also see their rating prior to voting on them? Would that increase voter participation and change election outcomes?

God reveals himself in Scriptures through your Faith********
Romans 10:16-17 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks,repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Romans 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Gynnya McMillen was 16. It was her first arrest, a family dispute. The authorities used martial arts on her in the detention center. She's dead. Another trans woman is dead, Monica Loera, of Austin, TX. She's the first to be murdered in 2016.
The Flint water poisoning atrocity unfolds as we learn that state workers in Flint were provided bottled water, even though they publicly assured residents of the water's safety, while privately mocking and deriding them in emails. Demands and petitions for the governor's resignation flood the Internet. The FBI has begun a criminal investigation into the Case of the Toxic Water.
5 percent of polluters create 90 percent of toxic emissions. Take a wild guess where those Super Polluter facilities are located. The Navajo water supply is also quite toxic, perhaps worse than Flint's, and the Navajos are wondering why they can't seem to generate any media attention.
Oklahoma GOP bill would ban suicidal LGBTQI teens from seeking help from queer-friendly therapists. The legislation is the latest in OK Rep. Sally Kern's crusade against gay people. Former Oklahoma officer Daniel Holtzclaw, who was convicted of raping 13 black women and sentenced to 263 years, has disappeared from the Oklahoma Dept of Corrections online database that is open to the public. The authorities refuse to comment, which may defy state law that says that the victims are entitled to know of their offender's whereabouts.

Black history most don't know.
Stacey Dash talked with Steve Doocy today on Fox & Friends, where she said it was “ludicrous” that people were getting upset with the Oscar awards for not nominating any Black actors.
When black Americans’ ancestors were enslaved in pre-Civil War America, they were compelled to live lives shaped by their masters. Uniformity was required, and disobedience was punished. As a result of this ongoing powerlessness, slaves developed what has been described as a “plantation mentality.”
So what’s changed? For an overwhelming majority of black Americans, nothing much. They still embrace a plantation mentality, but they’ve changed “masters:” from slave-owners to the Democratic Party.
Today we discuss racism in Hollywood due to the Academy Awards not nominating any black actors for extraordinary work. Also, Shaliah finishes play some of her favorite Aaliyah and Sade songs, find out who Meek Mill is in mess with now, what long awaited reunion is finally happening, what famous restaurant is closing because of E-Coli outbreak, which Disney star may be coming out the closet, and more. Also, Shaliah plays one of her aunt's favorite songs to celebrate her and Jordan's birthday! ??

BIBLEBOOKCLUB: OT: Genesis 18:20-19:38, NT: Matthew 6:25-7:7:14, Psalm 8:1-9, Proverbs 2:6-15
In today's OT scripture, The Lord went to visit Abraham. God told Abraham, he was on his way to see how evil and wicked Sodom and Gomorrah had become. Then Abraham bargained with God for the salvation of the cities and people Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham approached God and said, “Will you kill good and bad alike? Suppose you find fifty godly people there within the city, will you destroy it, and not spare it for their sakes? That wouldn’t be right! Surely you wouldn’t do such a thing, to kill the godly with the wicked! Why, you would be treating godly and wicked exactly the same! Surely you wouldn’t do that! Should not the Judge of all the earth be fair?” And God heard Abraham's petition and replied, “If I find fifty godly people there, I will spare the entire city for their sake.” Then Abraham kept bargaining with God until God said (vs 32) “Then, for the sake of the ten, I won’t destroy it.” And the Lord went on his way when he had finished his conversation with Abraham. And Abraham returned to his tent. FRIENDS, DON'T EVER STOP INTERCEDING FOR YOUR FAMILY, CHILDREN, FRIENDS, CITIES, PEOPLES, COUNTRIES AND GOVERNMENTS.! IF THERE ARE STILL 10 RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE IN THE LAND, GOD WILL HEAR OUR PETITIONS, FORGIVE, HEAL AND SAVE! WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE SERVE!
