It's not what you know it's who you know

God bestows gifts and callings but man places gifts and callings on whom "he" chooses.....The Governor says that her father would say "all work is honorable" and I totally agree....The media writes a column and they declare that society honors the value of work and it gets my blood to boiling....SOCIETY DOES NOT HONOR THE VALUE OF WORK!!! SOCIETY HONORS THE VALUE OF THE DOLLAR GENERATED BY WORK!!!!

When you have people making only 26 grand but yet they have 2.5 degreees, masters and doctorates and have even served in the military that clearly shows that SOCIETY DOESN'T HONOR THE VALUE OF WORK!!!! Look at all the screwups that we have out there and you know why this is??!!! It is because folks are getting the "hook up" and many of them aren't even qualified to do their jobs "Hello, Michael 'Brownie' Brown"!!!! IT IS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW!!!! IT IS WHO YOU KNOW IN AMERICA!!!!! You have operators sleeping on the job at major refineries and causing some of the largest oil spills in this area!!!! And let me assure you that a lot of nepotism is still going on!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT NEW ORLEANS!!!! At many refineries in this area you have entire families who are ALL salaried employees....And you wonder why folks aren't hiring??!! They're waiting for one of their "cousins" to finish school!!!!!

Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further--Lee Dorsey


Ray Nagin is so busy worrying about the projects going back up in New Orleans but what he needs to be worying about is whether blacks will be getting the shaft when it comes to doling out money for contracts!!!! San Antonio has this down to a science--ie the business of "shafting" it's black population when it comes to minority contracts....They love our "black" dollars that are generated by the fact that we are serving in the military though....San Antonio could take a cue from Killeen and Houston, Texas....Besides the riverwalk there is nothing else appealing about San Antonio to me--especially that city's culture....

I guess my problem is that fact that I truly don't know anyone with the "hook up" so I guess I'll be making 26 to 30 grand for a while inspite of the fact of 2.5 degrees....Even if I did I'd make sure that I would be fully informed and capable of doing my job because I have a conscience.....Most folks are on the job only for the money.....IF THE CHOICES THEY MAKE BRING FORTH DEATH AND DESTRUCTION THEY STILL FIND COMFORT TO REST WELL AT NIGHT...Take President Bush for an example!!!!

"So, who's Gonna help Brother (and sister for that matter) get further?? One another...Is that the truth??? One another.... Yeah you rite!!! "

Who's Gonna help Brother Get Further

We may seem happy like everything's alright But from the outside looking in Everything's uptight But deep down inside we're covering up the pain It's an old thing It's a soul thing But it's a real thing Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother Who's gonna help him get further One another One another There's old dude standing on the corner Waiting for a fox to pass The only thing he's got to go by Is this is where he saw her last And there's old John, two dollars in his pocket Talking loud and thinks he's rich And look for little fool, too cool to go to school Get a job, in two days he quits Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother Who's gonna help him get further One another Is that the truth? One another Yeah, you're right Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother Who's gonna help him get further One another One another Mama get up early, early in the morning Papa's already gone Going out a-working for half of what he's worth now You know that it's wrong What happen to the Liberty Bell I heard so much about?
