There are many times that pictures can speak a thousand words. I wonder how many of the 2nd amendment nut- jobs would advocate the same idea of the “right to bear arms” in ALL situations.? Would it have been appropriate for these so-called negroes/colored folk to turn around and blast one of these rabidly racist peckerwoods into meeting their displeased maker? If you really follow their hollow rationale, then you would believe it too be acceptable to have the right to defend yourself against not only the government, but terrorists that wore white robes and burned down black churches, and homes, in the name of nothing but pure unadulterated hatred. How many times has any single, narrow-minded, prejudiced good-ole- boy, neanderthal had to defend himself against tyranny from our government in the last 200+ years? Compare that answer to the countless acts of continued violence that Black…

Join The White House In Celebrating The National Day Of Service

By Jueseppi B.






Join President Obama in a National Day of Service

This year, MLK Day commemorations will coincide with the Presidential Inauguration, so the President is asking all citizens to join him in participating in a National Day of Service on Saturday, Jan. 19. Additionally, the Committee is encouraging people to pledge a commitment to serve after MLK Day throughout 2013.


On January 21, 2013, our nation will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day), a national holiday during which we honor the legacy of the civil rights leader Dr. King through a day of service and volunteering.


This year, MLK Day commemorations will coincide with the Presidential Inauguration, so the President is asking all citizens to join him in participating in a National Day of Service on Saturday, January 19. Earlier today, the Presidential Inaugural Committee announced that it will host a wide range of volunteering events in Washington, DC and around the country.  Additionally, the Committee is encouraging people to pledge a commitment to serve after MLK Day throughout 2013.


President Obama has been deeply committed to engaging more Americans in service since taking office four years ago. He expanded AmeriCorps through measures such as signing the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act in 2009 and creating the FEMA Corps program last year.  He launched the platform to make it easier for Americans to find and post local volunteer opportunities.


Today, Americans are volunteering in increasing numbers and interest in national service and civic participation continues to grow. Building on this momentum, we encourage all Americans to serve on MLK Day and long after the Inauguration.  As President Obama has said, “America’s never been about what can be done for us; it’s about what can be done by us together.”

The King Legacy of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. changed the course of history and inspired us to build what he called “the beloved community.” The King Legacy of Service 25th Anniversary video tells the story of how Dr. King’s birthday evolved into a national day of service.









By Greg Tucker
One of the greatest things about the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is that when we pause to celebrate the life and accomplishments of the civil rights leader, we are also inspired to answer what he called life’s most persistent question: “What are you doing for others?” We can respond with action via MLK Day projects and National Day of Service activities surrounding the upcoming inauguration.

The focus on service every MLK holiday is an annual reminder of the unfulfilled needs in our communities and the opportunities we have to meet them. Americans continued to show their generosity in the responses to natural disasters in 2012, but problems that require solutions fueled by “people power” go beyond headline-grabbing events.


Stubborn issues persist from Dr. King’s era — increasing economic opportunity, improving the education system, and caring for our environment continue to be concerns alongside the needs of those affected by natural or man made disasters that seem to arrive with increasing frequency.


The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) leads the federal effort to increase service across our nation. Our AmeriCorps members, Senior Corps volunteers, and Social Innovation Fund grantees are making a difference every day, whether it’s helping a child learn to read, making sure a forgotten senior citizen has someone looking out for them, or helping Hurricane Sandy victims with recovery and cleanup as they try to rebuild their lives.


As proud as we are of our CNCS participants, we are just as proud of how Americans step up to make their communities better. Volunteering is in our nation’s DNA, and there are many tools to connect with local service opportunities through search engines like the one we have on or by pledging to serve through programs like Operation Honor Cards, which collects commitments to support our veterans and military families.


Around the Dr. King holiday we often hear the quote, “Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.” We’ve seen this demonstrated time and time again through the efforts of ordinary Americans who accept the challenge to make service a part of their lives.


Isn’t it cool that greatness is within everyone’s reach?


To learn more about the MLK Day of Service and find local opportunities to serve, visit our MLK Day portal. You can make pledges to serve veterans and military families by visiting the Joining Forces site. And visit the Presidential Inaugural Committee website to commit to serve on the National Day of Service and search to find ways to volunteer all year long.







US President Barack Obama prepares a mea

President Barack Obama announced today there will be a national day of service on Jan. 19 — one day before he takes the oath, the AP reports.

“This year’s inaugural will reflect our belief that working together, we can keep moving our country forward and fulfill the promise of the American dream for all families,’’ Obama said in a statement from his Presidential Inaugural Committee, according to the New York Times.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee includes former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, as well as actress Eva Longoria serving as committee co-chair, the AP reports.

The Huffington Post

James Yeager, the CEO who recently threatened to “start killing people” if President Barack Obama pursued an expansion on gun control, has had his gun permit suspended.

Authorities with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security told Newschannel 5 the suspension was based on “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public.”

In a statement to the station, Commissioner Bill Gibbons said:

The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public’s safety. Mr. Yeager’s comments were irresponsible, dangerous, and deserved our immediate attention. Due to our concern, as well as that of law enforcement, his handgun permit was suspended immediately. We have notified Mr. Yeager about the suspension today via e-mail. He will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail.

Yeager raised some eyebrows after posting a video to YouTube Wednesday. In the clip he said…

Late, late, last night when I should have been sleeping, I watched the Ed Show on MSNBC. He showed a clip of a video quickly going viral by James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response in Tennessee. Yeager is a pro-gun advocate of the zealous persuasion. Apparently, he was so angered by VP Joe Biden’s comments that President Obama will use Executive decree to push through aspects of gun legislation, as yet undetermined, that he went ballistic. (I love deliberate puns!)

The video sparked outrage amongst the sane and undoubtedly ginned up more idiocy amongst a select few. Yeager then went back and edited the first video to walk back some of his more incendiary comments but this is 2013 and it was too late. Click here to see the original video. NOTE: Pack Your Bags Part 1 below is the edited version which…
