Mega Lottery ~ The Ultimate Give To Get Scheme

"When it gets as big as it is now, you'd be nuts not to play,"..."You have to take a chance on Lady Luck."
Mr. Willie Richards ~ Atl. Ga. 
At odds of 1 in 176 million, the Mega Millions lottery offered a world record pot of $640 Million. According to the computers, there were three winners one in each state, Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. Each winning ticket is worth $213 Million before taxes and will net  approximately more than $140 Million after taxes if the lump sum option is taken. Even second place will take $250,000 before taxes.  

A record in sales, raking in an estimated average of over $1 Million per hour, totaling over $1.5 Billion was made in the current Mega Millions lottery. Each state in which the lottery was paid also recorded record revenues. In 2011, $56 Billion in revenues were earned by the lottery. According to reports, more people play the lottery than attend church. In fact it is said that the average income earner of $30,000 spends approximately 9 % of their income purchasing lottery tickets hoping for the chance to win. Statistics say that on average 9 out of 10 winners go through their earning, and are right back where they started from in approximately 5 years.

Murder On Demand ~ The Trayvon Martin Tragedy & No Justice!

Go to the end of this post for the latest report concerning the concealing of Trayvon's 911 call to the police regarding being stalked...Utterly BAFFLING!!!

We have all heard about the tragedy of the murder of 17 year old Trayvon Martin at the hands of neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman, who evidently took it upon himself to become the police, judge, jury and executioner based on what he "perceived" to be "threatening" or imposing danger to the neighborhood.

As Michael Baisden has said, NFL football star, Michael Vick can get locked up and sent to jail for killing a dog, but there is no justice when it comes to the murder of a black man.  How does a person murder without impunity in America? Change gun laws and add language that is geared toward eliminating a "duty to retreat" and  some version of a "stand your ground law" which was obviously misinterpreted in this case. 

As Witnesses come forward we are seeing a better picture of the bogus claims of Zimmerman. He may have been right about things in the past, but he was WRONG about EVERYTHING that had to do with the night that he stalked and killed Trayvon

Here's Rev. Al Sharpton placing the right perspective on the ordeal even during a time when his mother just died. our sincere condolences to Al Sharpton and his family as well. 

"The Heat Just Arrived"  

The following is Trayvon's Mother and Father. Let us pray for their continued strength.

"I will Not Let My Son Die In Vain"

Although the Lawyer for George Zimmerman has spoken on Anderson Cooper 360, he doesn't seem to know much about anything other than his client isn't a racist, and seemed to be defending himself. One thing we know...HIS CLIENT, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED AND MADE TO ANSWER FOR TRAYVON MARTIN'S MURDER. 

For my take on the dangers of arming citizens with guns and allowing concealed carry, please go to the Peoria Pastor's Blog "Is This What Concealed Carry Leads To?" and feel free to place commentary there regarding the gun issue.


Update 3/26/2012:

According to the a blog "The People's Champion"
Unconfirmed reports out of Chicago via ABC-7 News is reporting that U.S. Justice Department Officials have discovered that the Martin teen also called the Sanford police 911 emergency line moments before he was killed. This new information if determined to in fact be true will change the course of this entire investigation. Sanford police have continued to rationalize the reason Zimmerman wasn’t charged is due to the lack of evidence to refute his self-defense claims. Officials have said evidence and statements from witness support Zimmerman’s allegations and the department has stood firmly behind its investigation into the killing of the Martin teen. The new leaked information creates another perspective on this controversial homicide case. The fact that Martin may have called 911 (suspected to report a strange person following him) shows that he had concerns, was afraid, and supports his girlfriend’s account, who he was talking to on a cell phone moments before the shooting occurred, that someone was following the youth. This means that the self-defense claim by Zimmerman most certainly must fall flat, because the “stand your ground” statue in Florida doesn’t provide protection under the law in incidents where self-defense claims are made by the pursuer. More importantly, when the Martin parents filed suit to obtain the 911 tapes from the killing, apparently the call from their son to 911 officials was omitted by authorities. We have not even heard about Trayvon’s call up until now. This raises serious questions about the Sanford police’ intent when they provided information to Trayvon’s parents surrounding his killing. Also, the new details regarding this alleged 911 call from Trayvon adds credibility to the Martin’s claim that Sanford police misled them and provided false information when they claimed that Zimmerman had a squeaky clean background. Moreover, other disturbing details have begun to emerge. The public has been aware that the Trayvon Martin teen was actually killed about 70 feet from his Father’s fiancĂ©e apartment but his family was completely unaware. In fact the Martins had reported the teen as a missing person, they made repeated calls to Sanford P.D. while he was listed as a missing person, and it wasn’t until 3 days later that Sanford police led them to the city morgue when they discovered their son had been killed. Analyst following the case now say the youth more than likely didn’t have any identification on him, and with no criminal history the cops couldn’t establish who he was through local or national finger print databases. However, Activist Dick Gregory points out that a small town like Sanford probably wouldn’t have a volume of 17-year-old slain youths in their city morgue, and Gregory’s insight here is alarming.  Why did it take so long for the police to make the connection that the slain black youth at the city morgue was the Martin teen. In the three days it took the police to notify the Martins of Trayvon’s death the police could have scripted the perfect cover up"

New Atheism...Same Old Confusion

According to the Huffington Post Black Voices, not only have the Harrisburg, PA. American Atheists taken the time to spread utter lack of biblical understanding, but they did it in the most racially offensive manner possible.

This billboard which has since been torn down, was hoisted in PA's most racially diverse neighborhood, by them who believe in Charles Darwin's "Origin Of The Species by Means Of Natural Selection: The Preservation Of Favored Races In The struggle For Life." (Hear atheist Richard Dawkins invoke the name of God as he struggles to remember the title of what he calls the most import book ever written) 

Correction Of A Horrible Social Appeal

Supposedly this was done in protest to the PA, House's declaration that 2012 be the "Year Of The Bible". However it turned into a victimization of the neighborhood in a sense. American Atheist Harrisburg director, Ernest Perce V, said that he feels that if there are any victims, that he is one as well because he has received multiple death threats as a result of the billboard's short debut. (Ya Think Ernest???)

Take Charge: Black Women HIV & AIDS Awareness

Saturday March 10th was National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The alarming facts are that within the United States, women constitute 25% of all new HIV infections annually. If that weren't alarming enough, out of that 25%, Although Black women only constitute 14% of the United States population, they are approximately 60% of all new HIV infections among women. When compared to less technologically advanced sub-Saharan countries within Africa, such as in the Congo (0.28%) and Kenya (0.53%), the American numbers become especially alarming. 

According to The Huffington Post Black Voices, the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), announced results from its HPTN 064 Women's HIV Seroincidence Study (ISIS)  stating the following findings among 2,099 women ages 18 to 44, 88 percent of whom were black:
  • 1.5 percent (32 women) tested positive at the outset of the study, even though they all thought they were negative. 
  • Among those who initially tested negative for HIV, the rate of new infections was 0.24 percent within a year after joining the study.
Additional statistics are as follows:
  • More than 290,000 women in the United States are living with HIV/AIDS. Studies show that women tend to face greater gaps when it comes to accessing care. 
  • One in 32 Black women will contract HIV/AIDS in their lifetime. 
  • Black women constitute 13 percent of the total AIDS epidemic.
  • Heterosexual Black women have the second highest rate of new infections behind only gay and bisexual men. 
  • Black women contract the disease at 15 times the rate of white women
Quite naturally, this leads to questions of rates of incidence among black women in particular.

President Obama's "Private Citizen" On 'The Dunamis Word View' YouTube

Well, I did it. I was finally able to create and post some of my material on our youtube channel, The Dunamis Word View. This appears to be time consuming so I hope it's not expected on a regular basis. (at least for now -LOL)

The following two videos (and you should be able to see a progression) discuss the recent comments to Sandra Fluke by President Barack Obama and his silence in defending Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman, asking why our President didn't decry the openly spoken continued, misogynistic comments of comedian and atheist Bill Maher. In addition video Pt. 2 uncovers the real reason why our leader was, is and will probably continue to be silent.

"Happy Easter" or "Happy Resurrection"?

1 Cor. 15:55 ~ "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?"
The capstone of the Christian faith is the resurrection of Christ from the dead. It was around that singular event that Jesus demonstrated his authority over life and death itself.

John 10:17-18 ~ "17-Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.  18-No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father."

The Life Changer

Why is this singular event in history shrouded with so much doubt and confusion? By his resurrection Jesus proved that he was more than a mere man and that he had power over all power as God in the flesh.  Without
