    I am compelled to contemplate the disgusting transparency of the "reverends" whose divisive voices are muffling the Church bells in America that 'used to' peal so loud and deep representing the resurrected Savior Jesus Christ and His reverberating Love for all humankind.

    They draw near to Him with their lips yet there hearts are set upon the reelection treasury and the sheep who are being shuttled by bus to the ballot box who blindly put their faith in divisive propaganda rather then He who is the source of peace, love and unity. Who is and was the true author of "I've got a dream".

    I think it would be a testament and add credibility to all the words about unity if all the church bells in America would be dusted off and brought out of forced retirement on this Labor Day and pealed loud and deep and in unison, what better way to solicit the blessings of Heaven to once again rain down on this great land of America and it's people.

    Perhaps words are cheaper then action. I pray not.

    MLK talked of people being the best they can be. Being responsible.

    Today people are told they are victims of discrimination, and qualify for some handout paid for by greedy people who can pay alittle more.

    What a disgrace our current political leaders are!

    Too bad MLK isn't alive today. Even in his 90's MLK would articulate real hope better than BO. MLK would be appalled and disgusted with the sad state of the black community today and he would be angered and ashamed at all the phony race hustlers such as Sharpton, Jackson and Barack Obama. We have a black community today which has a 70% illegitimate birth rate + the highest murder rate among any race + the lowest high school graduation rate among any race + the highest unemployment among any race + the highest government dependence among any race and the list goes on.... The violent and vulgar RAP largely originates from young black males which is one reason why young black males are the most violent in the country.

    Barack Obama could have - should have hit repeatedly on ALL of these points for the past 5 years but the man instead is too caught up in class + race + gender warfare for the purpose of winning elections. Disgusting. What a missed opportunity. What a travesty.

    Barack is NOT a leader. MLK was.

    I have a dream that one day minorities will want to be treated NOT by the color of their skin, as Dr. King wanted.
