Having read some of the post-election statements by our top Black organizations, and after watching some of their leaders on TV news shows, commenting and lamenting the loss by the Dems, I thought about the effectiveness of our champions for civil rights, economic empowerment, and political empowerment. How effective have they been in terms of gains for the collective of Black people, their primary constituents?

While they are mostly run by Black people and receive millions of dollars from Black members and supporters, the reciprocal benefits returned by these organizations are far lacking. In exchange for Black dollars Blacks get “no justice, no peace” marches, demonstrations, 860-mile walks, voter registration campaigns, reports on how bad a shape we are in, emails that ask us for more money, press conferences, and awards programs.

The term firefighter needs no justification! They are rescuers extensively trained in firefighting, primarily in extinguishing hazardous fires that threaten property and civilian or natural populations, and to rescue people from dangerous situations, like collapsed or burning buildings or crashed vehicles. Also, in many areas or communities, they are trained in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and operate ambulances in addition to being a firefighter. Quite simple,  this is what they do!

Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving Dinner

By now for most of Thanksgiving is over and we are all on that kick of trying to recovery  and to loose the weight we may  have gained from all that eating.

According to some Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving without the turkey, the ham together with all the trimmings, including one of my favorite greens and a thing some people calls chitterlings. I must admit, personally, I have yet to experience what they taste like. It is at the bottom of my bucket list of food items to taste. However, a  favorite of mine is a healthy slice of chest pie with a tall glass of ice-cold milk. Oh! This is my kryptonite.   Continue reading “The Fantastic Health Benefits In Turnip Greens”

warned consumers of scams to avoid this holiday season.

According to Ohio Attorney General DeWine; “Scams don’t take a break during the holidays, and when people are busy or distracted, they may be more likely to fall for a scam,” “We just encourage people to be careful. Take a few minutes to think, and if something doesn’t seem right, don’t do it.”

The listing of scams that DeWine provided to avoid this holiday season includes: Seasonal job scams. Job seekers find an ad for a mystery shopping or package shipping position where they can work from home. They complete an online “interview” over chat or email. Once they’re selected for the job, they receive a check. Continue reading “DeWine Warns of Holiday Scams”

TODAY’S USA TODAY HIGHLIGHTS FINNEY LAW FIRM PROCEEDING BEFORE FEDERAL ELECTIONS COMMISSION

September 22nd, 2016 – Via FINNEY’S LAW FIRM

Attorney Christopher Finney

Deidre Shesgreen of USA Today has a great story up on the long battle that this firm’s attorneys waged on behalf of our client David Krikorian before the Federal Elections Commission.

It took the FEC five long years to act on a simple Complaint on which the facts were largely not in dispute, and they barely slapped the wrist of our former Congressman Jean Schmidt for taking an illegal gift that actually exceeded $650,000.

Brian Shrive of our firm carefully researched the facts and the law, and prepared a complaint that irrefutably established the violations of Federal Election Law.

The gist of the story is that the FEC is hopelessly ineffectual, taking interminable amounts of time to decide simple issues and deadlocking on partisan lines over the most obvious violations of law.

Telephone Companies are Running out of Numbers

Although we were taught that our number system can extend into infinity may it be positive of negative. However, our number system is consisted of  ten (10) main number starting with zero (0) through nine (9) and thereafter every other number or any combination thereof are repeats of the first ten (10) numbers. For example, take the number ten (10) which is a combination of  one (1) and zero (0) eleven (11) becomes a repeat of (1) one and (1) one. These processes shall repeated to create the desired number combination. Continue reading “Telephone Companies are Running out of Numbers”
