Join Us, Vote them Out of Office

Well…where do I start. Why don’t we summarize? That way I won’t get so long winded. The Donald still occupies 1600 Pennsylvania. Congress is still eating out of the palm of his hand. On a given day, Thirty-five to Thirty-seven percent of some group of people support Trump no matter what he has done, is…

Has Common Sense Left The Building?

I’ve told my wife and friends several times in the recent past. I no longer have my cool stroll. Some, not me, would call it a pimp walk. But most dudes from my era (the sixties) had the stroll walk. For that matter, it goes beyond the sixties. A perfect example of that was the…

Do You Like Soul Music, Yeah! Yeah!

It’s easy for us old fogies…lol. When was the last time you heard that term? In fact, some of you may have never heard of or referred to older folks in such a way. As I was stating, before interrupting myself, it’s easy for the baby boomer generation to flip at hearing the beginning of…

Who Told You That?

Think about it. You call up tech support or an on-line major retail store. The person on the other end of the phone line is quick. They almost solve your problem before you describe it. They give you a meticulous to do list that supposedly will make all your problems go away. You thank the…

It’s Another Family Reunion

You ever wonder why old folks like to bring up the past. Sure, one of the reason is that it reminds them of their younger days when they were spry, fit and could chase the wind without a care in the world. Try asking them which was the most memorable or happiest time in their…

Living in America-Freedom is measured by Economics

Super highways, coast to coast, easy to get anywhere. On the transcontinental overload, just slide behind the wheel..How does it feel…                                                                                                                                            When there’s no destination that’s too far?                                                                                    And somewhere on the way you might find out who you are… Living in America.                                                                                                                           Eye to eye, station to station.                                                                                                      Living in America.                                                                                                                         Hand in…

Black Women 4 Positive Change vs The Wild Wild West

I love a good western. The old classics like “The Big Country” with Gregory Peck, “Tombstone” with Kevin Costner or Burt Lancaster playing Wyatt Earp, “Posse” with Mario Van Peebles and too many others to mention here. I try to catch Marshall Dillon-Gunsmoke reruns whenever I can. It’s another classic western TV series. The cowboys,…

Baby Boomer in the House

While compiling my next book, entitled “The Episodic Thoughts of Hamp”  which includes blogs I’ve written as far back as 1999; I came across this one. It was written in March of 2002. It’s funny to look back and see where my mind was at the time. Look for the book this fall, meanwhile please enjoy…….

Bobby Womack was a Soul Brother of Mine

A Soul Brother of mine passed on Friday, June 27th. He laughed, loved, cried, and lived for 70 years on this earth.  I cannot say we were of the same mother. Nor can I say we were of the same father except the father who thou art in heaven who just happens to be the…

HCofA’s BTR Premiere Show w-guest Rich Tycoon

Some of you might not know that I’ve been blogging and writing articles, which to me is one in the same, since 1999. That was the year I started a newsletter entitled Katara-Rhythm. It was an attempt at trying to relay my thoughts on various subjects out to the masses. Most were social and political in…

What’s Going On, 2014

One can’t help but look at newscast and internet headline reports from near and far and wonder just like the title of the Marvin Gaye’s classic mega hit, “What’s going on?” As our imagination recalls the melody and the lyrics, “Mother, mother, There’s too many of you crying.”  We are shocked, taken aback and sorrowed…

Social Media, is it really Sociable?

Is it me, or have some people taken social media way too far? I know, I shouldn’t trip about such things but…Hey, you know me. I think about these type subjects. I am always wondering why, how, and who in the hell do they think they are. Personally, I love communicating up close and personal….
