The Gantt Report – THOUGHTS AT LARGE!

There are more older people that vote than there are young folks so if Republicans want to keep winning they had better keep their greedy, bloody paws off of Medicare and Medicaid.

Devilish media institutions are encouraging celebrations after recent bombings of Libyan landmarks in an attempt to assassinate the country’s leader but African Americans and Blacks worldwide should know that Libya, unlike the United States and other Western countries, regularly utilizes Black professionals in billion dollar oil deals and other commodity transactions. Libya tries to get Black people paid!

People ask me all of the time what I think about Florida Governor Rick Scott’s proposals for government employees. My feelings are the same as the workers feelings, they don’t care what happens to Florida citizens and Florida’s unemployed and underemployed don’t care what happens to government workers.

The people that disrespect Black media the most are also the ones that will need Black media support the most in 2012 elections, candidates that are Black and/or Democratic Party members! Many pollsters, printers, fund raisers, consultants are already on 2012 campaign pay rolls right now but how many political professionals getting paid right now look like you do? How many political ads will Black newspapers and radio stations get before summer of 2012? Not many, if any!

Accusations of “imperialism” and “neocolonialism” are being made in Africa today in response to fighting in places like the Ivory Coast and to elections that took place in Nigeria. All around the world, it is still all about the money, or the oil, or the cocoa!

After going to multiple churches on Easter Sunday, it made me remember how my mother worked so hard to afford to buy me a “Easter suit” and my sister a dress. The difference then and now is now I go to church on a regular basis for my own salvation but back then I went because mama and daddy told me to. Easter speeches are still the same. Eggs are more expensive.

As usual in an election after reapportionment, Florida’s Black elected officials will be running against each other in races across the state. Can’t we all just “Rodney King” and get along?
