  14. Great blog. The Philly section with all the murals is fantastic. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day.

  15. Hey Cats, I agree this is a great blog. I just check out the Philly Corner and it is great. I never really knew that street murals were still “in”. I had to go to Detroit for a project and analyze some murals and I think its so sad that some people can’t view them as serious works of art.
    Hey douglaskev noticed you went through some avatar changes. I like you current avatar rather than the other one you had on yesterday.

  16. im glad you enjoyed the art- it was just a tiny sampling of what philly has!

    the avatar business was an accident-wordpress switched it on me for some reason? lol

  17. Well, Im very happy it wasn’t your choice to use the avatar, because I was secretly questioning your judgment LOL

  42. Hey Kevin,

    I enjoy your website and the information you have to present to the world from your point of view. However, I do have to ask one question…where is God in all of this? Don’t you think the world would have more success with social change if everyone would accept the concept Jesus preached, “You are your brothers keeper!”

    • What university schooling have you finished?
      And excuse me but most of the social facts presented are researchable facts. You comliment in subliminal tones so just show your “face” and say what you really mean.

  43. nice blog. keep in up. visit me if you like to exchange the blogroll links

    from Danuka

  44. Nice blog for deadbeats. Debate like Al Gore debates. Debate like Obama. Debate requires back up and the problem with all of you in the “let’s give everything away for free” crowd is that you are creating the same cess pool that everyone around the world comes here to escape.

    Why did BO come here (after birth) from Kenya? Because there is no oppty there. It is ruled by despots intent on robbing the country of all oppostition and wealthy. Now what does BO do…fools you fools into thinking he cares about you. You are simply a loose coalition that made up enough margin to get the least qualified the most powerful position in the world – which he has squandered. All you francophiles check out what Sarkozy is saying about Obama.

    This is the most inept White House since Jimmy Freaking Carter. BO will eclipse his incompetence and set black politicians back for decades to come.

    Forget the birth certificate. Let’s see his grades, his school loan documents, his thesis. Why won’t he release these docs? What is he hiding?

    I will fill in the blanks, this guy has been promoted by race for every liberal apologist all the way through life. Why? Because he speaks so well for a black man.

    How insulting to educated black men like myself…Wake up black America, we are losing decades of progress. BO must go…
