At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Mac Daddy = Successful Pimp

Pastor James David Manning (Harlem, NY) is interviewed on Radio 91.9 The Conscience of Kansas.

I never knew that the pejorative term, "Mac Daddy" means world-class street pimp in the parlance of Harlem.

He is not a shy man. It is good that there are some whose free speech has not been chilled.

He's also speaking from a position of strength because his congregation is in Harlem and he SEES what impact the welfare-enslavement of todays black Americans has wrought.

Welfare-enslavement vs. actual enslavement and wage slavery...

Welfare is not a great thing to be on, but the alternative forms of slavery are better, why? Dependency is never good, but when there is no legitimate alternative what can they do?

Is is a coincidence that in Canada minorities do better for themselves? No. They're no harder working, they just really have oppurtunities open to them.

"If people were to return to the lord..." give me a break, there is hardly a single black atheist in all of American, nevermind Harlem.

LL, you understand that this is a propaganda radio program, right? Obama's birth certificate was given to Fox News and even they accepted it. This pastor, like most pastors is a moron and a propaganda "artist" (I hesitate to actually call him an artist because he's such a poor charlatan).

LL said...

I don't know if the situation of multi-generational welfare recipients is the same in Canada as it is in the US, so I can't address that. I can address the situation in the US where the compassionate safety net (a good thing) has been taken to an obscene degree. People who are able to work, don't. There is NO DIGNITY in that, no self-improvement, no effort toward continuing education (free education).

Canadian Pragmatist, my blog and many other blogs propagate opinions of a political nature - so you may consider my blog propaganda of a sort. It's not GOVERNMENT propaganda, it's my own.

I think that Obama is a US Citizen.

Our friends in Germany sent an e-mail to us asking what "Mac Daddy" meant. They had a video of Pastor Manning using the term. I didn't know what it meant either...had to look it up.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

Yah, but do you have any statistics to back your claim up? How long are people allowed to remain on welfare and is there any evidence that they would not rather work if they possibly could?

How many people who are able to work don't? How could you possibly measure that?

LL said...


People are allowed to remain on welfare for life.

Evidence - personal observations count most heavily to me. I was a police officer/police detective and saw a great deal first hand. I suggest you take a ride-along with the local constabulary and ask your own police what they have seen with their own eyes. Maybe they'll take you on a tour. I've worked extensively with colleagues in Canada and we all see the same thing.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

Those who are on it for life should eventually be cut off, but even still it is not such a great expense, and it does usually keep them off the streets.

Reform does not imply abolishment.

LL said...

There MUST be a safety net for people. Some people can't hack it, not because they don't want to but because they simply can't. Life threw them a curve ball. I understand that. However, the system we have now encourages them to remain on the dole rather than encouraging them to leave the dole.

Life is hard. Even at its best, life is hard. Life is disappointing. Making it in the world is a challenge and every labored breath requires effort. We need to remember to give a hand-up and not merely a hand-out.
