The Bible Economics Line by Mike Ramey

 

“You ask his protection, but how can you expect it if you are not agreed with him?”

--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

 

     In one of my favorite comic strips, a boy and his father were having their typical argument over spending money.  The boy expected his father to serve as his personal ATM machine; the father insisted that the boy did his chores around the house to earn his spending cash.  Keep in mind that this boy went to church every Sunday with his family.

 

     He made the classic mistake of tryi

POSITIONED FOR: THE COMING THING

“Sometimes, we are waiting for God’s blessings; sometimes, God’s blessings are waiting for us!”

--Mike Ramey, Syndicated Columnist

 

     One of my favorite modern westerns is: “The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.”  It ran only one season during the early 1990s but packed a lot of punch in a small package.  Legendary character actor Bruce Campbell played the lead—with a very strong supporting cast. 

 

     One of the underlying themes of the show was the dawning of th

BLACK LIVES MANIPULATED, PART 2

“You had better begin life in a hollow tree and be a man, than begin it in a rented house and be a mere tool, the imitation of a man.”

--Booker T. Washington

            During my days as a juvenile court Probation Officer, I handled a high-risk caseload with many of my clients “on papers” for violent offenses.  The most amazing thing about my job is when I would have clients become crime victims, courtesy of other juveniles.  Oh, my clients were incensed and DEMAND

Racism 101

In my book, "Leave The Rat Race To The Rats, I deal extensively with racism from a very unique perspective. I blame racism on what Occupy Wall Street refer to as the 1%, the richest one per cent of America who dominate American politics. Instead of calling them the 1%, I refer to them as American Supremacists. Here is an excerpt on racism from my book:

"Racism

Blacks have been and continue to be the victims of racism in America. It is worst in the ghetto.  They have suffered at the hands of whites

Unwitting Trump Supporters

 

We have a solemn duty to prevent the most disastrous crisis America has ever faced.. I speak of the re-election of Donald Trump. So, a few days ago, I could not believe my ears. I was listening to my favorite radio station, the progressive WPFW 89.3 in Washington DC.  I heard criticism of the Democratic presidential nominees, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  

Any criticism of the Biden-Harris ticket is helping Trump. Now the conservative media and the rest of the Trump base is heaping criticism on

The Dictatorship Is Here

 

Our Democracy is over. We now have a dictatorship. Trump has prevailed. With his accomplices in the congress and the senate, he has immobilized these two branches and now rules by executive decrees.

The Republicans and Democrats failed to come up with a compromise covid 19 relief plan to prevent severe financial consequences for huge sections of the population. So, Trump seizes the opportunity to impose his plan by executive order.

 Previously the federal government paid individuals $600 per week

An Elder Must Teach (TM) By Mike Ramey

 

LESSONS FROM MY FATHER

 

            I once knew a young man that I hired to take care of my yardwork.  I thought him dependable, courteous, and receptive to teaching.  I invested time in him, and it worked out well for a season.  However, the season ended when he discovered girls.  Soon, his focus weakened, and his ability to keep his word suffered.  I had warned him in advance that his ‘sweetheart’ was going to turn his head.  I know that his real father had probably told him the same thing.  S

.......Alleges desperation to scuttle the Forensic Audit, and renewal of media attacks on IMC 

The Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) says its attention has been drawn to the above subject of a newspaper report credited to the Senate Ad-Hoc Committee which recently investigated the alleged financial malfeasance in NDDC. 

The Ad-hoc Committee which had Senator Olubunmi Adetunmbi, All Progressives Congress, APC, Ekiti North as Chairman, had Senato

First, I list the words “Black and African” in this commentary with a slash because I view these words to be interchangeable. I believe that all Black people are some type of African people, given the evidence, so I don’t debate it.  Next, I am not a professional writer, nor do I plan to be.  There’s already enough Black scholars, writers, professional speakers, etc. What we need are more doers, more problem solvers, more sound-minded strategic leaders.  I try to be one of the Black folks menti

The Great White Hope

Many are misled into thinking that Donald Trump has captured just a faction of the Republican Party. In reality, he is the champion of the entire Republican Party that fulfills their real views. In other words, the Republican Party has always espoused those Trump views, but held them undercover because they were so repulsive. At last they have found a leader who can get away with admitting them publicly. Regardless of how odious Trump’s actions, generally every Republican member of the Senate an

The Ramey Commentaries by Mike Ramey

‘Cancel’ an employer? Forget getting a job that is worth anything in the near future. Employers--even cancelled ones--have long memories, and even longer connections to other employers. They will have no sympathy for you when it comes to finding another job. Written recommendations? Forget them. Clearing security checks? Forget that too. Plus, their lawyers and investigators…once they find you? They will feast upon your financial bones for a GOOD, long time!

“THE WORLD IS CRUEL”

Rayshard Brooks

Racial inequities and Repression of Blacks are Pervasive

In ALL White Supremacist Nations.

Only Our LIBERTY and INDEPENDENCE

will manifest Genuine FREEDOM for Descendants of Slaves.

LET US BE WISER THAN OUR CAPTORS, OR WE WILL BE FOREVER SUBJECT TO THEM! DEMAND THAT ALL OUR RIGHTS AND REQUESTS BE ADDRESSED AND ALL OUR VOICES BE HEARD!  

Brooks words are so true, but they leave out all the disparities, suffering, and affliction of Blacks who are held

The rent-a-mob has gotten what they wanted. Unfortunately, they are only weeks away from not being satisfied with what they got. At the bottom line, when you call 9-1-1, a social worker or youth program is not going to protect you, your family or your business. It’s that Blue Knight who will be risking their life to keep you safe…IF your city still has a police department, fully funded.

“Two men, one from the US, George Floyd; Another Cuban, Silverio Portal, both are victims of abuse of power and discrimination. Floyd was killed by racist police; Portal lost vision in one eye after a beating in prison, he suffers political discrimination. Why can Cubans speak fluently about racism in the United States and clearly criticize the US judicial system? Because there is an acknowledgment in that country that there is a problem. Why can’t Cubans see clearly the injustice committe

Is Not Black Too

Joe Biden is catching unwarranted criticism for saying that “, A black who voted for Trump is not a black”. Thank you, Biden! I could not say it better myself. As a matter of fact , a black who criticizes that statement is not a black too. I think it is an excellent metaphor.

Let’s face it:

  • A Jew that would vote for Hitler is not a Jew.
  • A Latino who would vote for Trump is not a Latino.
  • A Mexican-American who would vote for Trump is not a Mexican-American
  • A Muslim who would vote for Trump is not a Mu

The UN is Trump's Ultimate Target

I’m wise to Trump.  Megalomaniac Trump’s ultimate target is the UN. One of the first things he did when he came to office was to dismantle the Iran treaty. All the other signatories, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China—plus Germany) and the European Union did not support Trump’s  action. The sanctions have driven Iran's economy into severe recession, with oil exports largely stopping, major foreign companies pulling out to avoid US penalties and the value of the local currency plummeti
