Will Of The People

By Credo, published on Dec 7, 2007

... that we believe that the government can do no wrong, and has never told a lie, that they are working to secure the nation. But if you should look closer you may find that they are working to destroy the workings of the nation, and that is why we find everything going wrong with our system. Our education is failing, our criminal justice system is failing, our political system is failing, the checks and balances which hold the very government together is failing, and as we all know our foreign diplomacy has failed. Let me suggest that this is no coincident, that we have failed by design and... (more)

Victimization Of Our Elderly

By Credo, published on Nov 2, 2007

...to reap. Most people who are reaching that age of retirement are the famous “Baby Boomers” who generally came from a large family and worked hard to help develop this country into the big republic that it is today. People then were told to go to school work hard, get a good education, get a career and than save for your retirement, a plan that most have failed because the careers were lost to industrialization, lost to technologies that remove the needs of the people from their place of work and from the long sort after careers. They were the people who stood in massive... (more)

... needed a puff...maybe a few puffs for the stress that I was about to inherit. The rule is...everybody is cool at the beginning and that's the way it was with Romeo Mitra. Romeo Mitra, born and raised in the jungles of the Philippines. Came to the United States in 1998 with no proper form of education and speaks with a heavy broken accent.

...magazine purchases within our society which further implies that people are no longer interested in reading or subscribing to communication in that context. Perhaps this trend is due to a surplus of Cable television, computer online services, video games or perhaps it is due to our poorly run education system.

Our strength as humans beings has always been in the form of unity as a family unit, the... (more)

Slave Race: Are you ready for this?

By Credo, published on Oct 26, 2007

... to their religions, because we have forgotten our true nature and our lord. It became a law that we should not learn to read, that we should never speak our own languages or teach each other of our beginnings, and in this way our captors felt no fear, and in this way we were devoured by the de-education of our people. Whether right or wrong we have grown into a slave people because of a lack of knowledge, those who have found no rest for the want of all things. Although many people say that Blacks have been unaffected by slavery and racism they find it impossible to comprehend the debts of ... (more)
