Greetings Coalition  Family!

I  was recently asked, again, what my position is on reparations for the  descendents of African captives forced into chattel slavery.


First,  I would like a clear definition of reparations. Webster’s defines reparations  as an act to repair, restore or compensate for a wrong or injury, payable in  monies, goods or services. Most, when thinking of reparations think of monies  being paid out to survivors, and indeed that can be part of it. But, if you  seek to repair, then you must  assess the damages done. The damage done to the captives was diverse; they  had their culture, wealth, families, ancestry, humanity and even their God  taken from them.


How  do you begin to repair  that kind of damage?


How  do you give a person back their name after being cut off from their family  for nearly five hundred years? Hmmm, should all people of African decent in  the western hemisphere be afforded free DNA testing? And then all the  inhabitants of western Africa be typed to match? How do you repair the damage done to the black family structure that  necessitates that women assume the role of both parents, and the men aspire  to be adolescent pimps? How do you teach a nation about their God when you  yourself have no real perception of who God is?


What  can you do to restore  the dignity and humanity so effectively suppressed and sometimes destroyed in  the captives? What can be done to restore  the American-born African male his sense of manhood?


How  do you compensate African mothers  and fathers, sisters and brothers for the agony of never seeing their loved  ones again? How do you compensate  american-born Africans for the theft of the opportunity to live in and  develop an unmolested continent, the richest continent on the planet?


I  venture that most groups involved in the quest for reparations have not  attempted to address the problems of re-associating us with our families, culture  and vital ancestry. We must consider how to disassociate from a culture that  has infused us with greed, immorality and violence. We must consider that in  order for us to be restored to our former status in the world and with each  other, the black man must relearn what it means to be a man in his own  village. We must demand compensation for the rape and losses to the  motherland of valuable natural and human resources, for all we have  contributed to these invading societies is the natural property of mother  Africa, and she should be compensated. As far as monetary compensation, has  anyone allowed for the probability that the united states government might  impose an inheritance tax?  Copyright  © 2002 G. R. Adams

Why do people say 'God Bless You' when you  sneeze?

There are several theories  for this.

 One theory says that the phrase "God Bless you" came from an  Islamic practice which originated over 1400 years ago. According to the Islam  religion, when someone sneezed, he should say "All Praises to God"  and in response the people would reply "May God Bless You".

 Another explanation is that when people sneezed it was believed that the  heart would miss a beat; in that microsecond, the skip would allow the devil  to enter the body. Therefore, saying "God bless you" would stop the  devil from entering one's body uninvited.

 Another middle ages superstition held that, when one sneezed, a large amount  of breath (regarded as the very breath of life) could be expelled suddenly  from the body, resulting in death. In case the victim died in this instance,  he/she would at least go to heaven with God's Blessing.

 Written records state that the saying goes back to the time of Pope Saint  Gregory I, or Gregory the Great, who was Pope of the Catholic Church from  September 590 until he died in 604. When Pope Gregory ascended to the Papacy,  it was just in time for the start of the Plague, so this Pope is  unfortunately known as the patron saint of plague. He believed that constant  repetition of litanies and unceasing prayer for God's help and intercession  would help ward off sickness. On 16 February 590 A.D., Pope Gregory decreed  that whenever someone sneezed, others should say "God bless you" in  response. The blessing was given in the hope (or belief) that the one who  sneezed wouldn't then develop the plague.

 Perhaps there was more to this than people realised: it is interesting to  note that the plague of 590 A.D. dissipated very quickly.

Because it's the expression of a wish, not  a statement of fact. "God bless" is in the subjunctive mood, which  has become rather rare in modern English, and means "May God  bless", not "God does bless".

A common response is the German word  Gesundheit which means: good health to you

It originated in old pagan religions. When  someone sneezed they believed they were weakened for a moment and demons and  evil spirits could enter them. Saying "God bless you" prevented  this.

Long ago, people believed that the devil  had seized you when you sneezed. Therefore, saying that blessing would drive  the devil away.

29 General Tips

Can also save you money  too.

Every little bit is a  step to help save the earth.

 If you want to learn more about the tip then just click on the link (if  available) to go to a page that will elaborate on the topic.

1.           Change to Fluorescent Bulbs - If every house in the United States  changed all of the light bulbs in their house, that would be equivalent to  taking one million cars off  the streets.

2.           Don't Rinse - Skip rinsing your plates before putting  them into the dishwasher. In average you will save 15 gallons of water per  load. Plus, you will save time.

3.           Hang  Outside to Dry - Get a cloths line or rack to dry your cloths. Your cloths  will last longer and you will save money

4.           Turn off  computers at night - don't just put them to sleep. You will save an average  of 4 cents a day which ads up to $14.60 a year.

5.           Use Both Sides of Paper - if you have a printer with a  double sided print option use it. You will save half of the amount of paper  you would have normally used.

 Then when your done bring it to the recycle bin.

6.           Get rid of baths - Don't take baths, take showers. You will in average  save about half the amount of water that you would if you were taking a bath.

7.           Don't get  bottled water - Instead of bottled water get a reusable container  to carry water. Also you can get a filter to make your home tap taste more  like bottled water. It is definitely more cost efficient.

8.           Turn the water off when you brush - Your parents have said this before,  now I say it. You will save 4 gallons of water doing this alone.

9.           Shorten your  shower - Every minute you cut from your shower is roughly 5 gallons of  water. The less time your shower takes, the lower your impact on the  environment.

10.   Recycle Glass - If you  do not recycle this, it will take a million years to decompose.

11.   Don't Pre-Heat the Oven - unless needed, just turn the  oven on after you put the dish in it. Also, to see if it's finished just look  through the glass instead of opening it.

12.   Use Warm or Cold Setting on Washer - instead of the hot  cycle use the warm or cold setting. This will save a lot of energy a year.

13.   Turn Down your Thermostat - Every degree lower in the winter  or higher in the summer you put it is a 10% decrease on your energy bill.

14.   Turn off your lights - An easy one. Turn off your lights  when you are not using them. The benefits are obvious.

15.   Get rid of junk  mail - There are many services that can help you get rid of junk mail.  That will lead to a lot less trees being cut down to take up room in your  mailbox.

16.   Use Matches instead of  lighters - Lighters are usually considered disposable so they will most  likely end up in land fills. You can use the cardboard matches which are much  more eco-friendly because they are made of recycled material.

17.   Don't  get a paper phone book - Instead of getting a paper phone book. Use a  online directory instead.

18.   Give things away - Take things that you are not going to  wear or use and give it to a charity or someone who will use it.

19.   Go to a car wash - Going  to a car wash is a lot more  water efficient then washing your car at home.

20.   Stop paper bank  statements - Why waste paper getting your bank statement mailed to you when  you can just check it out online.

21.   Buy Rechargeable  Batteries - Even though it will take a good investment to buy these you  will find yourself gaining it back in no time.

22.   Pay your Bills Online - If every house in the US did this  then we would save 18 million trees every year.

23.   Get a reusable bag - You can't recycle plastic bags,  instead get yourself a reusable bag so that you won't have to worry about  carrying your necessities.

24.   Do Errands in Bulk - Make a list of the things you have  to do, and see if you can fit  a couple of those things together in one ride.

25.   Inflate your Tires - If your tires are inflated at all  times your car will run more miles on less gas.

26.   Wrap Presents Creatively  - Without going out to get wrapping paper you can use newspaper, an old map,  or anything else. It would look a whole lot more creative.

27.   Plant a Tree - It's  good for the air, can keep you cool, and can increase your property value.

28.   Buy Local Produce -  Consider how much energy it takes for produce from china or any other country  to come here. If you have the option to buy local, do it.

29.   Walk or Ride Your Bike When you can - If you have to go  somewhere close consider riding your bike or walking there instead of your  car. It's better on the environment and healthier.

SpotLight On Our Efforts


Mothers United  Through Tragedy, Inc.


MUTT  Inc. are Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents and Family Members who's lives have  changed due to murder. Each one with a tragic story of how their loved one  was murdered. Each person struggling to cope with the loss. MUTT Inc. is a  Citywide organization. Survivors coming together to heal and take a stand to  denounce the senseless violence that is plaguing our City.

The  City of Philadelphia and the nation as a whole, struggles with the fall-out  crime victimization causes. Victims of crime and their loved ones are  frequently faced with financial, physical and even psychological loss after  crime. Very often they believe they have been neglected by the judicial  system that protects the rights of the accused. It is against this background  that there is a need for continued services for victims of crime and for an  organization like MUTT Inc.

The  mission of Mothers United Through Tragedy Inc. is to assist parents and  family members in the positive resolution of grief following the death of a  child and to provide information to help others be supportive after the  murder of a child or loved one. I started this organization after the murder  of my first born identical twin son. It was the only way that I could cope  with the loss of my first born, caused by a person who had little regard for  human life. He became my child’s Judge, Jury and Executioner. And in doing  this I felt I had to do something other than wanting to kill that person  myself. "AN EYE FOR AN EYE". But that is not the way, Vengence is  the mine sayeth the Lord. THOU SHALL NOT KILL.....So in helping other parents  and family members work through their pain, grief and sorrows, my sons spirit  lives on thru me.

MUTT  Inc. main objective is to turn a negative situation into a positive  situation. By educating and increasing the public’s understanding of firearms  violence, and senseless acts of violence, we must educate and continue with  our grass roots Activism our youth and adults must learn positive solution  instead of negative resolutions, through workshops and seminars also by our  own examples of non-violence, and conflict solution.

We  must fight for freedom, freedom from drugs that are plaguing our streets,  freedom from violence, freedom to live a peaceful life. Freedom for All. I  have become my son's voice now, will you become your murdered child’s voice?  Quentell's voice is silent mine isn't...And his voice will be heard through  me. No More Killing of Our Children!!! No matter what the age. I have picked  up my son's torch, and I will hold it high and never let it die out in the  name of my son.

We  must keep our murdered loved ones memories alive. Parents, family members  pick up your loved ones torch hold it high never let them die....

Q: Are these manufacturer coupons or  coupons that I print on my computer?

A:  All of our coupons are actual manufacturer coupons. Fewer and fewer retailers  accept coupons that are printed from your computer because of a huge increase  in counterfeit coupons. Actual manufacturer coupons which we issue are  accepted everywhere that coupons are accepted.

Q:  Can these coupons be doubled?
 A: Yes. These are manufacturer issued coupons and may be doubled in any store  that offers double coupons.

Q:  What are the face values and the expiration dates of these coupons?
 A: Being manufacturer coupons, the manufacturer determines the face values of  the coupons. We currently stock coupons ranging in value from 40 cents to  5.00 dollars. The coupon expiration dates are generally valid for 90 days.

Q:  How can I use $1,000.00 worth of coupons in 90 days?
 A: With our program, you get to choose the coupons you want, when you want  them. This way you never have to worry about the coupons expiring.

Q: How do I choose the coupons  I want?
