EXCERPT

Since the deaths of their mother in 2006 and their oldest sibling, Yolanda, in 2007, the three surviving King children are in a dispute over control of their mother’s estate and are accusing each other of mishandling funds.

All three children are board members of the family corporation, but Bernice is administrator of her mother’s estate while Dexter is head of King Inc., “which controls the intellectual property rights of their father,” according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Dexter apparently had made a deal to use his mom’s papers for a biography about her. Bernice and Martin III, the newspaper said, “argue that some of these records are too personal to be made public. They also contend Dexter King has effectively shut them out of the company by refusing to call a family board meeting in more than four years.”

It is not uncommon for heirs to squabble even when there is little money involved. When there’s a lot of money at stake, it almost is inevitable that family ties are broken.

It hurts that at this special time, when people all over the nation are focusing again on King’s dream, his children are fighting over his memory.

And I can’t help but wonder now about “the content of their character.”

    Martin Luther King, Jr. – Now there was a leader.

    I’ve never understood this Obama mania. The man never did anything for me.

    Even my husband admires Obama’s rhetorical skills. I never saw it.

    I just hope that these inaugural events finally purge our nation of the collective racial guilt we’ve been carrying around for centuries.

    No one wants to utter the words for fear of being called racist.

    But I truly believe that, especially for some older Americans, a vote cast for Barack Obama was one way to undo some of the injustices perpetrated against people of color and to alleviate at least some of that guilt.

    But, please, come Wednesday, can we get on with the business of running our country?!

    And stop making decisions based on guilty feelings. These types of decisions are precisely the type that got us into the financial mess we’re in today.

    I do believe I’ve figured out at least one thing in my half century on this planet.

    Guilt is not love.

    Longtime reader here. Rosettasister has gotten me thru the darkest days of this shameful hoax. I’ve been encouraged, inspired and heartened here at Rosettasister. And I thank you all. But…

    Please stop the party politics! This is bigger than Republican vs. Democrat or Conservative vs. Liberal or McCain vs. Obama. This is about the very fabric and integrity of our Constitution.

    Rosettasister has become a vital source of information for those following the Obama saga. Its greatest strength was the focus on the Constitutional dilemma, and the absence of petty partisan bickering.

    We have no friends in Washington. Not Republican, not Democrat, not Independents, not Libertarians – no one. We only have each other: We the People. And I have no doubt that Obama is counting on such petty squabbling to keep us from joining together to stop him. Don’t let him win!!!

    Foxtrot, you have been one of the most valuable posters on Rosettasister, and I’ve appreciated and admired your respect for everyone. Please do not leave. We need you.

    Slider, you have also been a valuable poster, and I understand your anger and frustration, but Foxtrot is not the problem. Obama is. Our party leaders have let us down for years! Where are they now? Nowhere! Not even the talking heads on the radio will deal with this.

    Let’s all please play nice. Let’s all please continue setting the best example for others. We can’t win this by fighting amongst ourselves.

    Rosetta Gang rocks!

    To: Polarik

    Polarik – I believe you were one of the people who analyzed the COLB forgery with the You Tube video. My concern is SCOTUS will allow AZ to request the BC or SCOTUS will get it. The One will have had time to dummy up a better forgery in HI of a BC then we also will get bogus hospital records. I would guess Rahm made sure in Kenya that any trace of docs was destroyed.
    This is my concern. When he flashed the fake COLB – I knew he was not born in HI or anywhere in the USA.
    Anyone have anything on this supposed relative on his mother’s side who is military and is suing to see his BC. Supposedly family can request it??

    Well, actually, I was the only one to analyze the COLB forgery. The others were frauds.
    First of all, the original is in a sealed envelope that will not be opened without the involvement of Directors Fukino and Onaka. It’s highly unlikely that the chain of custody for this evidence would go through Obama or his lawyers. It should go directly from HI to AZ by way of the AGs.
    Next, I doubt that a forger would how to produce an original paper, long-form Hawaiian Certificate of Birth for Obama, along with forged hospital records to corroborate it, that would look authentic enough to get past Sandra Lines.
    That is not going to happen.

    EXCERPT

    The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

    1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
    2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
    3. From courage to liberty;
    4. From liberty to abundance;
    5. From abundance to complacency;
    6. From complacency to apathy;
    7. From apathy to dependence;
    8. From dependence back into bondage

    These words were written two years before George Washington became our first President. There is so much truth in these words it makes me shudder, especially since we are clearly in stage 7. An honest appraisal of our country’s downward spiral is necessary to begin the process of redemption. We have continually voted ourselves increased benefits, dependent upon the printing presses of the Federal Reserve to sustain our country’s ponzi scheme. We have pawned our future and the bill will eventually come due.

    The Great American Republic

    My assessment of the chronological sequence our democracy has progressed through, follows.

    From apathy to dependence (2001 to 2007)

    • George W. Bush elected President
    • Nasdaq stock bubble bursts
    • 9/11 attack
    • Alan Greenspan lowers rates to 1%
    • Invasion of Afghanistan
    • Department of Homeland security created
    • Invasion of Iraq
    • Hurricane Katrina
    • Home prices double
    • Financial derivatives grow to over $100 trillion

    From dependence back into bondage (2008 to ????)

    • Housing prices collapse
    • Financial firms collapse
    • Government and Federal Reserve intervene to prop up the worldwide financial system
    • Government bailouts of financial firms and auto manufacturers
    • Federal Reserve & U.S. Treasury commit over $8 trillion of taxpayer funds
    • Barrack Obama elected President
    • Immediate borrowing & stimulus packages exceeding $1 trillion are discussed
    • Federal Reserve lowers rates to below 1%

    Hello Rosettasister!

    Oh, that embarrassingly ridiculous statement coming from a State Senator!! Excuse me a minute while I go shoot myself in the foot. I need a diversion from my mental anguish. Her moronic statement is right up there with the woman who thinks Oblowhard will pay for her gas and mortgage.

    Maryland State Senator Lisa Gladden: “It doesn’t matter that the state of Maryland is broke as long as Barack Obama is POTUS. This is going to be great.”

    But Lise Lindeberg, a 72-year-old retiree in Stockholm, Sweden, thinks people have put too much faith in Obama.

    “I feel sorry for the poor thing,” she said. “People want him to be a savior — some kind of messiah. You just can’t become president and change everything when there’s no money.”

  19. Ted Says:

    The question is not IF there will be an interdiction of Obama’s Presidency by the Supreme Court, the questions are WHEN and HOW that interdiction will transpire — that is, if the USA is to continue as the Constitutional Republic that now exists.

    “Anger at waste on Obama trip”

    http://www.nation.co.ke/News/-/1056/515350/-/u1acus/-/

    Kenyans have criticised the planned trip by State officials to attend a party for the inauguration of Barack Obama as US president.

    They are angry that the delegation is spending taxpayers’ money on the unofficial party at a time when millions are staring starvation in the face.

    Former assistant minister Kalembe Ndile says the officials should not misuse taxpayers’ money to travel to the US, yet they will watch the ceremony on television sets from their hotel rooms.

    Mr Ndile caused a stir at the Foreign Affairs ministry yesterday after he forcefully donated a 21-inch television for the top officials to use to follow proceedings at Mr Obama’s inauguration next Tuesday.

    “Why should we fund a delegation when it has been made clear that only our ambassador in the US is invited?” the former MP asked.

    Those of us who’ve been paying attention know exactly why Kibaki was snubbed.

    Rose,
    I haven’t posted here in a long time, but I follow your blog daily.
    I must agree that I didn’t care for that article by Farah on WND today.
    As much as I don’t want Obama to be POTUS, I will not pray for his failure. Only God knows why Obama has gotten this far in spite of all the evidence of his ineligibility.
    All we can do is speculate.
    My daily prayer includes that God’s will be done, even if I don’t understand it.
    Also, that if God has accepted the majority of the country’s will to have Obama be president, then He take that which is dark and slimy in Obama and work in his mysterious way to turn that man’s agenda around.

    I’m not in any way legitimizing Obama by that prayer. And I will never accept that he is eligible to be POTUS until such time that he shows irrefuatble proof of such eligibility. I do however, understand that some things are beyond my control no matter how hard I fight the good fight to bring the truth about Obama into the light.

    “My daily prayer includes that God’s will be done, even if I don’t understand it.”

    ————————

    Yes, Lady! Exactly!

    That has been my prayer everyday.

    I do think it’s important, though, to make those that didn’t pray for President Bush to see the error in their ways.

    They’ve done so much damage.

    And there are some that chose to politicize their rhetoric.

    And I do include former President Clinton in that number.

    My son was a student at the Manhattan School of Music Preparatory and I used to park near the Riverside Cathedral every Saturday.

    That is where Clinton made his offensive remarks about Bush “lying” in a house of worship.

    Next thing I knew he was in the hospital.

    So, it was relatively easy for me to pray that God’s Will Be Done when Bush was at the helm, as I knew he shared my belief system.

    I do not believe that the forces of good catapulted Obama to the Presidency.

    But I do know that Obama has free will, and may just surprise us.

    So, like you, that is my prayer.

    May Barack Hussein Obama align his will with that of His Creator.

    It’s not too late.

    Oh no–say it ain’t so, Jill? lol Jill Biden puts her foot in her mouth this time. From the AP–

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip that her husband had a pick of two jobs in the Obama administration.
    Jill Biden said President-elect Barack Obama gave Biden the choice of being secretary of state or vice president.

    Her comment came when the Bidens made a surprise appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show, recorded at the Kennedy Center.

    The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud “shhh!”

    Jill Biden said the job of vice president was better for the family, because as secretary of state he would travel too often.

    I have a few things to say that may or may not not rub a few people the wrong way….If my opinions offend anyone, then tough!!!….Throughout this past year I have heard the terms “white guilt and “racial guilt” used so many times that it makes me sick….If you or anyone you know harbors white or racial guilt, then PLEASE seek mental health attention IMMEDIATELY!!!….because you have been brainwashed by the ultra liberal, left wing media….You can still be deprogrammed….It’s not too late!!!

    I have never owned a slave and neither have you.
    I have never been a slave and neither have you.
    I have never seen a slave and neither have you.

    If anyone has some kind of a guilt trip because slavery ONCE existed in this country, then get over yourselves!!!

    We can’t control history and we damn sure can’t change it.
    The only thing we can do is not repeat it….Slavery ended long ago unless you have a guilt trip over it….If that is the case then it hasn’t ended, because you are reliving the past in your own feeble little mind….Any person that is suffering from this type of concocted guilt is, in a sense, a slave themselves….They are a slave to their own guilt and should seek psycho therapy at once!!!

    If you think I may feel guilty for possibly offending anyone, then you have obviously mistaked me for someone that gives a rat’s ass….Political correctness (as Pamela Anderson said about Sarah Palin) can just suck it!!!

    c.j. & Purple Patriot,
    You two are a breath of fresh air. Welcome and please keep posting. A agree wholeheartedly with your posts above.

    I will say this: If Hillary were POTUS, we may not have an ineligible usurper in office, but the abuse to the constitution would be no less and the government would still be totally failing to secure our rights under the constitution. Our petitions for redress would still have been completely ignored and the police state would continue to grow.

    The Constitution is no doubt our rallying point and we need a focused effort. I have hitched my wagon to the movement for a Continental Congress via the movement started by We The People.

    I would be like to hear your feedback on the Continental Congress that has been called.
