"Most Powerful Pages on the Planet"
“Wisdom from Hollywood”
by Billy “Hollywood” Groves
While I can kind of understand why most people will do anything to keep their jobs; I can’t fully understand why some of these “talking heads” sellouts in the media have to go out of their way to put other black people down.
In a recent televised round table discussion about why Barry Bonds is a bad influence on major league baseball. It was the Black media guy who suggested that Barry Bonds, who is chasing the legendary Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron’s home run records, quit before he breaks the record.
Unless you have been off the planet for a while, you know that America has a problem with Bonds, a Black baseball superstar, who is suppose to be hitting home runs because he is using performance enhancing drugs.
While it’s a fact that steroids and other strength enhancing drugs may make a person stronger and bigger, as of me writing this article, there is no drug that you can buy, that give you talent, skills, agility, coordination and “cat quick” reflexes, because if they had that kind of drug, rich people would dominate every sport and poor people wouldn’t have a chance.
The ironic and hypocritical aspect of America’s media hating of Barry Bonds is the fact that Barry Bonds’ baseball records are more legitimate and valid than Babe Ruth or Hank Aaron’s records.
One just has to look at the era that Babe Ruth played in, there were no Black baseball players then and very few “others” than White ball players.
So in essence, Babe Ruth played against inferior talent in the then segregated major league baseball of his time. I often wonder if many of America’s early sports and political stars would have had an impact in their profession if they had competed against “All of the people in America”.
At the end of the day, if you want to question the validity of Barry Bonds records, then you have to question the legitimacy of all the White and Black players who played major league baseball in America’s Jim Crow Era.
God Bless America, Africa and Black sports historians who bring out the real truth!
We commend President Elect Barack Obama the 44th President of the United States and America’s first African American President.
Dick Cheney and Alberto Gonzales indicted in Willacy County, Texas
By Eddie Griffin, BASG
Since the story broke about the indictment of Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the former prosecutor Juan Angel Guerra, who first brought the indictment, was a no-show on court day, provoking Judge Manuel Banales to declare, “The state of Texas is not present, which is a rarity... I will not have a hearing when one of the parties is not present.”
If this is not flabbergasting enough, Judge Banales adds this little bit of Texas intrigue. He ordered “Texas Rangers to go to his house, check on his well-being and order him to court on Friday.”
OMG! Angel Guerra could be missing or dead. You just don’t indict the Vice President of the United States on charges of “engaging in an organized criminal activity”. (Agnew) How disloyal! Unless, of course, the charges are true, then Guerro would be a hero. But, for now, it looks like he is in hiding.
What a helluva allegation in the indictment!
Can you believe that Dick Cheney would own stock in a company that builds and manages federal prisons? What is the Vanguard Group? What kind of business is it in? And, does the Vice President own shares in it?
Those are the questions, not whether Juan Guerra has lost his mind or is seeking revenge for losing his office. We need to know exactly what the Vanguard Group does in order to make its profits, and how those profits are distributed. Is Dick Cheney receiving any dividends from the company?
In order for there to be a criminal indictment, there must first be criminal activity. Vanguard must have been charged with prisoner brutality, and it is also reported that Attorney General Alberto Gonazales tried to use his authority of his office to block an investigation into an inmate’s death that would a resulted in a major lawsuit against Vanguard. (The suit went forward anyway and resulted in a large settlement for the decease family).
These are reports from various news sources. But hard to find is this Vanguard Group. If you find any information about it, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
