The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

     I was catching up with a good friend of mine, when the conversation turned to the current social scene.  He brought up something very profound—but also troubling—on the issue of homosexuality.  “Do you realize,” he noted, “how quickly society has gone from ‘God made me this way’ to ‘it’s MY choice’, in a matter of a few years?”

     That was a ‘thought nugget’ that came over the plate like a fastball.

     One of the sure signs of the end times—just before the rapture of the church—is the fac

I also have a challenge for our young people.  Those twenty—and thirty—somethings who seem to have more time for nonsense with their tech toys than finding out about their own history.  Young person: you should KNOW that Black History is not ‘just’ for one month a year.  Do your homework on the reparations issue and find out how many in YOUR family were slaves back in the day.  Reparations is THE issue that should be on the front burner with the generations coming up behind us.  Young person: do

War is not the answer

War is not the answer

Where are the peacemakers?

War is stupid. War is uncivilized. War is evil.  In the war between Russia and the Ukraine, there will be no winners. War is not the answer. Peace is not the answer too. Of course peace is better, but is not good enough. It is too neutral. The answer is goodwill.  Seek goodwill between adversaries. Instead of war. Russia and the Ukraine should strive to become friends. This is a worthy goal.

Countries are egging them on. Threats are flying. Where are

In a statement titled Electoral bill amendment: We have been vindicated” and circulated to journalists Mr. Princewill said, “If I was to say that I told you so, I would be suggesting I knew for a fact beforehand that the President would sign the bill. What I knew was the President had the interest of N

Honest Republicans

Are there honest Republicans? If so, how can they stick with a dishonest, racist liar like Donald Trump as their leader. He is blatantly dishonest with absolutely no redeeming qualities. According to the Washington Post, in four years as president, Trump made 30,573 false or misleading claims, which amounts to 21 false statements per day. 

His dishonesty should make him ineligible for the presidency. Do honest Republicans believe everything he says? Do they believe anything he says? If he is the

A frontline Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress APC, in Rivers State, Prince Tonye Princewill has expressed surprise over an innocent and harmless advice he extended to the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on the burning issue of illegal refineries otherwise known as "Kpofire” and other matters, which the Peoples Democratic Party has capitalized on to cast aspersion on his p

BACK IN THE DAY ECONOMICS WITH MIKE RAMEY

      Let’s get to the lowdown on employment, or as it is better known as ‘getting a job’.

      There are two things that job seekers need to keep in mind about the economy.  Either you have an ‘employer’s’ market (where employers can afford to be a lot more selective about whom they hire for a job), and an ‘employee’s’ market (where employees are in short supply and can not only pick and choose where they work, they can get top dollar for their services)

Proud of progressives

I am so proud of progressives. Progressives is the only group to put morality over all other considerations, like nationalism,  ethnicity, self-interest, political expediency, popularity and mammon.

As I mentioned before, if George Washington had opposed slavery while it was flourishing, he would have been thrown out of office  on his ear.  He was trapped in the evil slavery. In the past similarly progressives were alone in their opposition to atrocities like colonialism, imperialism, Jim Crow, t

In Support of Marilyn Mosby

440px-MYD_0025_Marilyn_Mosby_%2825057546410%29.jpg

Let us take a critical look at the charges against Baltimore City states attorney, Marilyn Mosby:

  • The indictment charges Mosby with four counts. One relates to a $40,000 withdrawal Mosby took from her city retirement account in May 2020, citing that she had experienced a financial setback due to the pandemic.
    Bottom line- the $40,000 was all her money
  • She lied in order to lower the interest rate when she purchased a vacation home in Kissimmee, Florida, claiming it was a second home when she ha

     I just received the latest copy of my favorite, local business publication in the mail. 

 

     On the front page—complete with great artwork—was a piece on how vinyl was making such a strong comeback in the record industry that existing processing plants were having a hard time keeping up with the demand of BOTH musical groups—and consumers. 

 

     Of course, I’m still holding out for a revival of eight-track tapes…but this is a dream deferred for another day.

There is no question that when Baltimore city’s states attorney Marilyn Mosby sought justice for Freddie Gray by going after the police who murdered this innocent black man, a target was placed on her back.  However, she is not the prime target. These contrived charges are relatively minor but are blown way out of proportion deliberately. The timing of these charges raised my suspicion. They came days after  Maryland’s Republican governor, Larry Hogan, launched an unfair criticism about Mosby an

Trapped by Evil

George Washington was the father of our country. He confessed to chopping down the cherry tree because he could not tell a lie. But if he had opposed slavery while it was flourishing, he would have been thrown out of office  on his ear.  He was trapped in the evil slavery.

For over sixty two years, the mighty United States of America has imposed devastating embargo on the poor little island of Cuba. Year after year, the UN General assembly have voted overwhelmingly against this US embargo. The la
