Happy Easter Everyone!

Greetings & Happy Easter Friends!

For those who celebrate Easter:

Christ is Risen! crosses

Romans 6:8-11
“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)

 

For those who do & do not celebrate Easter, here’s some food for thought in the form of one of my favorite pics:

Awake

 

I have spoken quite a bit about American obsession with partisan politics & most of you should know how weary I am of our two party system. As politicians keep us at each other’s throats over various social issues, we are neglecting our economy & that we must hold Democrats & Republicans alike accountable for the fiscal tsunami near our shores. I want to remind everyone that I don’t care if you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian or any combination of those. I want us to work together for the common good. Your political affiliation is not important to me. What is important is that we all are awake & aware of what is taking place in our great nation. United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

Everyone have a wonderful, productive week & God bless! I’ll be sharing more introspection throughout the week as usual.

Dr. Benjamin Carson for POTUS 2016: Thoughts from a Black, Female Right-Winger

ben carsonMy latest article from the Yahoo News Contributor Network, featured on Yahoo Voices. Please share, share, share & feel free to leave your honest comments in the comments section under the article:

Although I’m very familiar with his reputation as a neurosurgeon, I’ve been researching Dr. Ben Carson because many of my fellow conservatives & Republicans, want him to run for president in 2016. This is mostly because of his refreshing, boldness to speak out most recently at a prayer breakfast in the presence of President Barack Obama & on Hannity on topics that are to some taboo. For those unfamiliar with Dr. Carson, he is the head of neurosurgery at John’s Hopkins hospital. He made history in 1987 by becoming the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins. He has received numerous honorary degrees & accolades, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008, awarded by former President George Bush. Despite the alacrity of my peers, I am still cautious because he is a physician without any political experience and I will not support any candidate due to their skin color or lack thereof, no matter how fervent their passions.

As a conservative blogger with moderately large audience on CainTV, so many have derided President Barack Obama for his lack of experience & business acumen, yet they are all too willing to support a physician with less (political) experience than the current POTUS. Now, I’m not arguing that he doesn’t merit their support, but the double standard is glaring. Dr.Carson has revealed that he is an Independent & I love the things he has shared, particularly the manner in which “political correctness” muzzles free expression.

This does not automatically qualify one for the POTUS ballot though. He’d be just as effective as Surgeon General or any applicable cabinet position or as an adviser. If he does run for president in 2016 it would be best for him to run as an Independent, rather than being forced to choose a Republican or Democratic ticket: The Democratic party nor the GOP deserves him as their candidate & it’s not in his (nor our) best interest to play the partisan politics game. We all lose, every time.

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

One of the things that troubles me as I participate in & observe the plethora of political discussions throughout social media is the manner in which conservatives & liberals argue at one another & engage in name calling, instead of healthy, respectful dialogue. So a few months ago I asked for recommendations for a liberal with whom I could have such civil discourse with, even though we are ideologically opposed. I was specifically looking for a liberal blogger and after several recommendations, I was introduced to Yvette Carnell through our mutual Facebook friend Charlie Harris, who is also a Christian Conservative. After several discussions we both agreed that it would be a great idea to host this “bloguement”, featuring honest, civil debate in blog form on the political & social hot topics of the day.

Yvette Carnell is a self-professed Independent Liberal who is an editor of African-American news site yourblackword.net and also maintains her own popular blog breakingbrown.com. She is a former Hill staffer, writer, editor, social media enthusiast & I consider her a very worthy “opponent”.In all honesty, in my view, debating her is sort of like debating the liberal version of myself (if there were such a thing). She is also a fellow native of Atlanta, Georgia and a young black woman as am I. Her erudite commentary on social & political topics is well known throughout the liberal blogosphere. Yvette is a political analyst for the African-American business and politics site Madame Noire (formerly atlantapost.com) and she also contributes to internet newspaper giant The Huffington Post. Yvette is also a featured video commentator, in the popular videos of yourblackworld.net creator Dr. Boyce Watkins on Youtube.

I’m a Christian Conservative blogger, Republican & member of the Tea Party. My articles have appeared on numerous political blogs & websites including the Yahoo News Contributor Network,  KiraDavis.net, former GOP presidential nominee Herman Cain’s CainTV & of course my own blog, Conservative Calmversation. I’m known throughout the conservative blogosphere for my provocative topics, candid opinions, humor & apologetics for the Conservative cause & the Christian faith. I am also featured on the Facebook page dedicated to highlight minority women within the Conservative movement, Conservative Black Women. I am also an editorial writer for Black Literature Magazine. The first novel of my fictional series, The Elements Book I is due for publication in early 2013 and my website is here. On Sundays, I host a 30 minute BlogTalkradio show called BookReads, highlighting authors of fiction.

The first topic that Yvette & I will be “blogueing” on is “Design your Ideal Healthcare Plan for America”. We both agree that the current state of healthcare in the private sector has not, is not & never has worked. We both dislike Obamacare, but for different reasons. Yvette is in favor of true universal healthcare run by the government and I am in favor of true healthcare reform, finally repairing what is wrong with the broken system we have had. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a very interesting endeavor on both of our parts! Input your email address (and confirm) on both of our blogsites to receive each edition of our “bloguement” to your email inbox!
