WHICH ONE SHALL WE HONOR?
Recently, I happened across a toy commercial on television. It featured the modern update of a popular doll series for girls. The doll in question could be anything. However, out of the nine or ten dolls displayed, not one of them had the TOP vocation of wife and mother. For—as we all know—without wives and mothers the REST of the careers soon become meaningless.
Take Women’s History Month. It is much the same thing as the doll commercial I mentioned at t
It's amusing and again annoying what some privileged persons are doing to worsen the image of Nigeria.
It is no longer the "job men" but a group of unrepentant demons who pose as earthly principalities and powers just to finish whatever is remaining as our unity, peace and progress.
How do we reconcile the fact that the BVAS machines approved by law for accreditation of voters as well as the collation and transmission of results from the polling units to the central Server of the Independent Ele
SECRETS TO SOLID RELATIONSHIPS—PART THREE
In our last thrilling installment, we briefly covered the subject of having Christ involved in not only your dating life, but your marriage as well. Yes, I know that the ‘lifting up’ of God may be considered ‘offensive’ to many. Feel free to contact me at my email addy and apologize. This series is on having solid relationships. A solid connection by an individual to God through Jesus Christ AND having relationships with individuals who hold a
THE BLACK STAKE IN THE UKRAINE WAR
Former President Donald Trump did what no other president of our modern era did: He kept our boys—and money—out of Ukraine, the money laundering capitol of the eastern bloc. Many on both sides of the political spectrum did not like the fact that on Trump’s watch, the United States managed to roll up an impressive score of major foreign policy victories by eliminating terrorists, keeping dictators in check, the Abraham accords and moving our Embassy to J
SECRETS TO SOLID RELATIONSHIPS—PART TWO
Continuing from my last column for the men in the house, the first secret to having a solid relationship is to start with God through Jesus Christ. The KJV Scriptures are a wealth of wisdom and information. Not only will the Bible tell you the type of people to meet…it will ALSO tell you the types of people to avoid at all costs. If YOU are a Christian man, brother, a Christian woman is whom you should marry. In fact, a Christian man should not e
FROM WEAKNESS TO WEAKNESS
Early in 2023, the damage from the pandemic and ‘shutting down’ of public education for the last few years was exposed to the public for the very first time. The under-education of Black youth in major, Democrat-controlled cities across America became apparent. What is truly sad is that the funding of public school teachers—and their unions—reached astronomical levels because of two words: “Covid Money”. Unfortunately, the watchdog mechanisms built to keep an e
LET IT PASS
Pastor Timothy Flemming, Sr. preached a great sermon during the wee days of 2023 entitled: “The Upward Look”. One of the bellringers of the message concerned our frequent desire to ‘look back’ in our lives and spend an ungodly amount of time fretting over what has already been done. “You have to let the past—pass!” Pastor Flemming urged his Atlanta, Ga. Congregation.
This is sound wisdom. Too many of us let the past pull us back. It doesn’t matter if it happened yesterday
A dilemma is when you leave Amaechi and APC to join Wike and PDP only to realize that Wike has sacrificed his party candidates to save his political future by subscribing to Tinubu and APC.
It is a dilemma when the Governorship candidate of the PDP, Sim Fubara is left in the dark and only hopes that Tinubu wins to help him using the Courts.
It's a dilemma when Amaechi's loyalists, which includes my humble self, have to support APC in the state for Tonye Cole to win the Gover
SECRETS TO SOLID RELATIONSHIPS—PART ONE
I’ve been checking out some of the ‘relationship’ advice blogs and videos on social media and, quite frankly, have not been all that impressed with the content and the direction. Suffice it to say that God has been left out of many a relationship equation. Without God’s involvement, and heeding the KJV Scriptures, a house will not become a home.
Always aim for God’s perfection in building solid relationships. He’s all in. Are you?
THE RIGHT KIND OF BLACK HISTORY
I usually attempt to put forth a Black History Month column annually for one simple reason: I am Black History. How can I make a statement such as this? Anyone of African descent who is over the age of 50 has reached the age of elder status, meaning that they have seen enough, done enough, and learned enough to be counted as a resource to the next two generations behind us. While some of our youth would think our achievements to be ‘historical’, those of m
HONOR ACHIEVERS—NOT THE MEDIOCRE!
Recently, I happened to see on my local TV news one of ‘those’ stories featuring a young Black man, about 21 years old, who was in one of ‘those’ local grass roots programs to keep young people away from crime. Their ‘unique’ idea was to play games, ‘listen’ to his complaints about life, and basically give him a ‘warm’ feeling about staying ‘mediocre’.
Back in the not-so-distant past, a young Black man at the age of 21 was one year away from graduatin
I am deeply saddened at the news that New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern is quitting. She is one of the few leaders in the world that has earned my respect and admiration. Especially at this time when the world suffers from a severe shortage of good leaders. All over the world, democracy has deteriorated. The choice for leadership, often does not even include good, but is a choice between the lesser of two evils.
Politics has become really dirty so if you are clean, you are at a big disad

THE COMPETENCY WARS
I’m going to warn you up front—this is going to be a HOT column!
Those who are quite proud of their sexual branding—those who actively practice and identify as sodomites (gay), Trans (Transvestites), Bi (Bisexuals) and other letters of the ‘alphabet mafia’ have seemed to forget two crucial things: The first thing: God. The second thing: Competence. It is one thing to ‘cling’ to pride in your ‘alphabet’. It is quite another to be competent at what you do outside
PROFANITY, CLASS & CONSEQUENCES!
During my teaching days I wrangled grades 6 through 12. You would NOT believe how many warnings and scoldings I had to give the students—even those IN my classes—regarding profanity. It was one thing to hear 16-and 17-year-olds cuss or swear in the hallways. It was another thing entirely to hear profanity from the mouths of 12-year-olds--many of whom had just learned how to find their way to the cafeteria for lunch. The depressing part of teacher enforc
According to Iran, their god is so angry with a woman wearing her hijab improperly that she should be put in prison, sometimes beaten and even killed. I suppose this god must be grateful to those men who abuse these women and so they should be exalted for enforcing such morality. Maybe Iran should parade these enforcers in a religious parade.
Well, my god is not like that. My god is not an egomaniac, My god does not impose a lethal dress code on women. My god is a god of love. My god is reasonab
LET HIM RISE!
Contrary to popular opinion, it is NOT the times that defines a man; it is a man who defines the times! In other words, a real man—especially a real Christian man—does not bow his knee to the whims of society when it comes to righteousness, beliefs, family, and the Word of God. A true man under the power of God has the hidden strength to make the times bow to him because he can see the landscape and the type of traps that are laid out to cripple and possibly kill him.
SUICIDE: THAT STALKING SPIRIT!
In the early 2000s, I served as a Probation Officer for my county Juvenile Court. One of the issues that I regularly ran into was teen suicide. Those teens involved in gang activity were especially at risk. Probation Officers received updated training in this area—especially those of us who carried high risk caseloads. Training was expanded to detention staff, social workers, and others who were involved in the field of juvenile justice. Signs that
GAINS FROM A SIDE GIG
From time to time, one may find themselves working a ‘side hustle’, better known as a ‘side gig’. Back in the day, a second job was referred to as ‘moonlighting’. Nevertheless, a side gig can bring in some extra, needed income during hard economic times.
It may also serve to gather information to give one a ‘leg up’ when times get better.
In my neck of the woods, I’ve been blessed to happen across a wide variety of young folks working the side gig of deliver
