Oprah Winfrey Campaigns With Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

~~November 2, 2018~~ 


Oprah Winfrey campaigns with Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams

What a magnificent sight!!

I’ve been closely following Stacey’s gubernatorial run in Georgia and know all about the devious, cheating ways of Brian Kemp.

There’s a huge disenfranchisement of African-American voters at the hands of the Secretary of state who, at the same time, is running for governor.

Tad hypocritical, tad conflict of interests, you think?

Anyway, Oprah’s on the way!!

Here’s so hoping that this takes Stacey over the top!!



Oprah Winfrey has lent her star power to Stacey Abrams, the Georgia Democrat aiming to become America’s first black female governor in the midterm elections next week.

“I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter,” Winfrey told a cheering crowd at a Cobb County town hall, citing Abrams’ stance on environmental protection, healthcare and gun control.

Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic Party causes and some fans earlier this year tried to encourage her to run against Drumpf in 2020.

She has said she does not want to run.

“I’m here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed … I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain,” she told the audience, to cheers.

Abrams’ Republican rival, Brian Kemp, serves as Georgia secretary of state, a role in which he oversees state elections. Earlier this month, a coalition of state civil rights groups sued Kemp, accusing him of trying to depress minority voter turnout to improve his chances of winning.

 She came to Georgia because she chose to, not because anyone paid her

 She doesn’t plan on running for president

Voting is extremely important to her

‘For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote, wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family, you are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don’t vote,” Winfrey said, adding that the right to vote is like “the crown that we all get to wear.”

Surveillance video captured a 1950’s-era military cargo plane plunging to the ground. The C-130 aircraft exploded into flames on a busy Georgia highway Wednesday, May 2, killing all nine crew members aboard.

The Puerto Rico National Guard plane took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was headed for retirement.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured what happened next, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports. The plane banked left before nose-diving and spiraling into the ground. Seconds later, a fireball and black smoke went shooting into the sky.

The plane crashed into the median of the highway, narrowly avoiding traffic, warehouses and a nearby gas station.


The pilot was identified as Maj. José Rafael Román, who hails from the coastal town of Manatí along Puerto Rico’s north coast. The mayor of that town, José Sánchez, told The Associated Press that Román had two young boys and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.

“The town is in mourning,” Sanchez said.

“My condolences to all Puerto Rican families.”

On Thursday, the Puerto Rico National Guard identified the other crew members as 1st Lt. David Albandoz, Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred, Master Sgt. Mario Brana, Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, Master Sgt. Víctor Colón, Senior Airman Roberto Espada, Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini and Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra.

April 4, 1968 …. “🙏🏽✊🏽 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. …. They Could Not Take Your Pride ✊🏽🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~April 4, 2018~~

We The Progressives



Martin Luther King Jr., an American clergyman and civil rights leader, was shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968.

He was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, and was pronounced dead at 7:05 p.m. CST. He was a prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was known for his use of nonviolence and civil disobedience.


Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1968.

He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights by using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

King led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and in 1957 became the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). With the SCLC, he led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the nonviolent 1963 protests in Birmingham, Alabama.

He also helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Something to think about …. “Women: Take Note”!!


~~October 6, 2015~~ 


One thing is certain about the bevy of legislation targeting women being introduced by conservative men. Women are mad and they aren’t taking it anymore.

One female lawmaker in Ohio has introduced bill that would regulate men’s reproductive health.


According to the Dayton Daily News, State Senator Nina Turner introduced SB 307, which requires men to visit a sex therapist, undergo a cardiac stress test, and get their sexual partner to sign a notarized affidavit confirming impotency in order to get a prescription for Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs.

The bill also requires men who take the drugs to be continually “tested for heart problems, receive counseling about possible side effects and receive information about “pursuing celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.””

The bill is a response to the Republican effort to pass House Bill 125, which would ban abortion if the fetus has a heartbeat, which is about six weeks after conception. Turner, an opponent of the bill, says if Republicans are allowed to legislate women’s health, men’s health should also be regulated.

“I certainly want to stand up for men’s health and take this seriously and legislate it the same way mostly men say they want to legislate a woman’s womb,” Turner said.

Turner isn’t the first female politician to fight back against the Republican effort to regulate what women can decide about their own health. In Georgia, eight female legislators walked out of the Georgia Senate in protest of two bills restricting access to abortion and contraception.

In Oklahoma, female lawmaker Constance Johnson tacked an amendment to a personhood bill stating that, “…any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.”

Female politicians have also introduced measures to ban vasectomies  and mandating rectal exams for men seeking Viagra. Clearly, women are mad as hell and they are fighting back. All I can say is good for them and keep up the fight. These conservative men should reassess their war on women before it really comes back to strike them where it hurts. In their pants.

To start the day …. “Rescued Bears given a new life”!!

~~November 6, 2014~~

Seventeen bears have been rescued from what would have been a life sentence in miserable concrete pits in Helen, Georgia.

Bears rescued from the sensory-depriving pits in Helen, Georgia, have been given a new life at the Wild Animal Sanctuary, where they now live in vast species-specific habitats that are measured in acres, not feet, and offer a great deal of enrichment, including a large pond and climbing structures. They have the freedom to roam, nest, forage, and enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables, and they will receive exceptional veterinary care for themselves and their newborn cubs.

They are now roaming acres of natural habitat at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado, where they are already rolling in the grass, racing around their fields, and enjoying relative freedom and fresh mountain air in a stunning 60-acre habitat.

At the end of the day …. “Remembering Roger Ridley …. “!!


~~September 17, 2014~~


“As it appears on Roger’s Facebook page …. “

“Hello, my name is Roger Ridley and I was in the “JOY” business. I was born in Lumpkin, Georgia, a small town near Atlanta. My career started in elementary school when I sang in a school program to get out of English class. I moved to New York City in 1964 and launched my professional career with Maley & The Isles as the lead singer, the first of many times as a singer.

At the age of 26 I married and became a father of three, two girls and one boy. They too are musically talented and sing with much feeling and authority. While I was playing in many clubs around New York City and throughout the tri-state area, the Ridley genius also ran deeply in the house.


I come from a musical family, “all my life I have been surrounded by music: my mother, my sisters and brothers are all singers and my father played the guitar, a little.

My goals were to share my music and songs with the world. “I pray these goals have been accomplished.” I thank God and appreciate the fact that I have the ability to draw crowds wherever I perform whether it be on the city streets, in the subways, concerts, street fairs or the night clubs.

On March 29, 1997 I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where I performed in a show about street musicians called “Madhattan” produced by Kenneth Feld. After one years of the show running it closed and a close friend of mine introduced me to the 3rd street Promenade in Santa Monica California and all of a sudden I was back to performing in front of millions of people, a diversified audience with one thing in common, good music.

On November 16, 2005 my Lord and Savior called me home and I had to go. I have made my mark and am very satisfied in knowing that my family is keeping my music alive.


Roger Ridley and his music embody everything that music is: soul, perseverance, and talent. He has often been called “the voice of God” by the other street musicians on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California. His dedication to his audience is clear, traveling from his home in Las Vegas, Nevada to his spot in Santa Monica every Saturday and giving his best performance before returning home that night.

It was Roger’s performance of Stand By Me that sent Playing for Change off on its mission to connect the world through music by adding other musicians to his recording.






~~Tears On My Pillow/You Send me~~

~Playing For Change~

~~Published on Sep 12, 2014~~

Directly from the YouTube video description … Playing for Change YouTube channel

“Sending you love from your worldwide PFC Family. Today we are proud beyond words to bring back our hero, the voice that started our first ever Song Around The World, “Stand By Me“, many years ago on the streets in Santa Monica, CA. Roger Ridley inspired us from the very beginning, and his music continues to inspire as we share this with you 9 years and 95 Episodes later.

When I first met Roger, I had no idea we would collaborate on something that would reach so many people and help them feel more connected as a human race. Today we are growing the PFC family all over the world and thanks to Roger, all of you, and music everywhere, we can see that if we stand by each other everything is going to be alright. Turn up this classic medley of “Tears on My Pillow” and “You Send Me“, the final PFC video featuring Roger Ridley, and for a moment find peace in your heart and in your world. Music is the Key.

RIP Roger, we LOVE you and your music shines as bright as the sun.”

Angelika’s Songs … “Go”, McClain Sisters!!


~~August 31, 2014~~ 

This is Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She is 9 years old.

She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band. 


I created this series: Angelika’s Songs  to post here the new songs that she teaches me about.

Angelika had a wonderful summer. She traveled up north, spent some days enjoying the sun. Now it’s time to go back to school. 

She’s given me a list of new songs. Might as well get started. She’s always asking now: “Have you done the song I told you about?”

So, here goes one of the songs in her ever growing list!! 


“As it appears in …. “


McClain (formely 3McClainGirls and McClain Sisters) is an American Pop and R&B girl group. Formed in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, in 2004, the group consists of sisters China Anne McClain, Sierra McClain, and Lauryn McClain.

They signed with Hollywood and released the debut single “Go” November 2, 2012.


~~Beginning and name changes~~

Sierra Aylina, Lauryn Alisa and China Anne McClain grew up watching Disney films such as Pocahontas and musical classics such as The Wiz, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Annie. In 2004 the sisters became interested in music when they watched their father write and produce songs.

Soon after, the girls began to write songs, choreograph and dance. In 2005 the sisters were discovered as actresses by a music executive who heard them sing and encouraged director Rob Hardy to audition China for his 2005 feature film The Gospel alongside Boris Kodjoe and Idris Elba. China played the character Alexis and her sisters were in the supporting cast.

Also in 2005, the sisters became more serious about a musical career and formed their first group, the 3McClainGirls. They recorded their first song, “Silly Games”. The song was produced by Michael McClain and Larry Nix and written by Shontell McClain. In 2006 China joined the main cast of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and Sierra made guest appearances. In 2007 the group starred in the comedy film Daddy’s Little Girls as the James sisters. In 2008 the group recorded the song “Daddy’s Girls”, inspired by the movie, and released it exclusively on Myspace. In 2009 and 2010 the 3McClainGirls didn’t work as a group, because Sierra and China were focusing on acting careers.
