Friday Blast from the Past - Alfonzo Jones

Okay, I admit this post probably has no significance to any other blog except for this one.

Mr Alfonzo (not me, but spells it the same) Jones was a tight Micheal Jackson impersonator from back in the day.

Alfonzo has been pretty low key ever since the 80's thought he still has his music.

Here's an updated photo of him with the great Smokey Robinson. He's in the center.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Article

The rebellious teen

Catherine Cauley was a 14-year-old in Cordele, Ga., in 1956 when her grandmother sent her to the store with more than a dollar to buy flour and fatback.

At the store, young Catherine laid the money on the counter, only to be ignored by the white storeowner who instead began to take money from the white people behind Catherine in the line. Catherine challenged the storeowner, asking for service.

"She said, 'You have to wait,'" Cauley, now 66, recalled. And the storeowner added, "You have to tell me 'Yes, ma'am' and 'No ma'am.'"

"I said, 'No I don't,'" Cauley said.

Later, at home, Cauley's grandmother told her the storeowner's family had complained about her behavior. Very soon thereafter, Cauley was sent to Rochester to join her mother, who'd moved here after her husband's death to try to make a living and send money back to the family. "They told my grandmother, 'If you don't get her out of the state of Georgia, she might be killed,'" Cauley recalled.

On Tuesday, that incident seemed so very far away, Cauley said.

"Excuse my French, but all I could say was, 'Oh, hell yeah,'" Cauley said about her reaction while watching the election results Tuesday evening.

Cauley said she hopes the younger generation truly grasps the significance of last week.

Recently, Cauley said, she was in a neighborhood market and encountered an African-American teenager with "a little thuggish attitude."

This was not, Cauley said, the same kind of rebellious streak she had exhibited decades ago in Georgia.

"He was just being disrespectful," she said.

"I asked him, 'What did you learn in school today?' He said, 'Nothing.' I said, 'That's your problem. You went to school and didn't try to learn a thing. Learn something and one day you could be president of the United States.' ''

"That was two weeks ago," she said.

"And Tuesday, it happened." Source

MTV launched a video portal, MTVmusic, that has almost every video ever showed on the network.
So thats were all those videos went after getting stripped from Youtube.

So far the advertisments on the page are for only for the videos itself but thats sure to change.

Anyway, its a good move by MTV. Where else can you see a 17 minute video of Prince in concert?

Colin Powel Endorses Barack Obama for President

This is huge, and will surely quiet alot of critics that say Obama isn't experienced enough to handle the economy. And will win over alot of Military voters.

He told Tom Brokaw today on Meet the Press that Sarah Palin isn't ready to be President of the United states.

McCain shows off his moves

Joe Shmo

This @#$ tried to be a spoiler on Obamas Campaign trail, trying to say his tax plan would be taking his money after he purchases the plumbing company he works for. Then McLame tried to make him a buzz word in the debate last night by calling him "Joe the plummer" and making him a example of why Obamas plan wont work.

Well, dont you know it. Joe ain't rich and Joe would actually benefit  from Obama's plan. 

What a little investigating will do for you. 

By the way: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean annual wage for plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters in the United States in 2007 was $47,350.

Real Clear Electoral map

According to RCP and CBSNews Obama pretty much has it locked down. As long as McCain doesn't come up with some kind of bombshell. And Im sure he'll try and come up with one.

At the Debate tomorrow night McCain's expected to bring up William Ayers.

Lets hope thats all he has.

The focus of Barack Obama's tax plan, that gives credit to companies that create employment domestically, right here in the states.

John Kerry tried a similar plan in 2004, but couldn't get elected.

Barack outlined the plan today in Ohio.
