WE'RE CELEBRATING ERIC BOWERS FOR THE KANSAS CITY HOLIDAYS!!!



Up top is one of our favorite Kansas City photos we asked permission to use in the early days of this blog . . . And so, this holiday season our celebration of Eric Bowers - Kansas City's greatest photographer - continues.

To wit . . .

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON TAKE SOME TIME TO MEET WITH AND CHECK OUT THE AMAZING WORK OF OUR FRIEND ERIC BOWERS!!!



Check the link for more Eric Bowers deets . . .

And given Eric's work is our favorite and rather inspiring and thought provoking . . . We're also including this late night TKC thought from another friend of the blog:

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

—Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

“Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is people who have made poverty and tolerated poverty, and it is people who will overcome it. And overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.”

—Ambassador of Conscience Award Acceptance Speech, November 01, 2006

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

--- Nelson Mandela

Luckily we in Kansas City have not needed our own Mandela to overcome the hurdles placed in front of us by our politicians.

Rhetoric and political spin is just that. The legacy of Mandela in South Africa, is the Hobbesian nightmare of death and predation where the rule of law is a hollow pretense used for the subjugation of civilization in a quest back to tribalism. In South Africa, there is a rape every 17 seconds.

No one thinks for one second, that gutless cunts like Bono and Springsteen will again flock to South Africa and perofrm concerts for the white victims of predictable atavistic barbarity now encouraged and sanctioned by the ANC.

South Africa is an epic, epic fail where anyone with any money lives behind gated compounds and politics has degenerated into an African paradigm all too familiar.

The LA Times, a liberal bastion of progressive thought has taken notice of the desperation and violence that is the real legacy of Nelson Mandela.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- South Africa's high walls, electric fences and lurid headlines are all part of the country's obsession with violent crime. But the release of national crime statistics is an annual ritual that sparks anxiety like little else.


The 2012-13 statistics released Thursday are the worst in a decade, analysts said. The figures show increases in the crimes South Africans fear most: murder; attempted murder; violent, armed house robbery; and carjacking.

The rise in the murder rate was slight, at 0.6%. But the number of attempted murders rose by 6.5%, violent house robberies by 3.6% and carjackings by 5.4%. Drug-related crime rose by 13.5% and truck hijackings by nearly 15%.

South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime, with casualty figures mounting like those in a small war. The country had slowly whittled down its murder rate since 1995, but this year's marginal increase raised fears that the battle against crime may have stalled.

The Institute for Security Studies, a South African think tank, said the figures were presented in a "vague" manner, making analysis difficult. Only the percentage change was provided, without the raw figures.


THE SENTENCE WITH RESPECT TO "ONLY THE PERCENTAGE CHANGE WAS PROVIDED, WITHOUT THE RAW FIGURES." IS CHILLING AND REMINDS ME OF HOW OUR OWN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SEEKS TO MANIPULATE AND OBFUSCATE THE ACTUAL CRIMES COMMITTED BY THOSE RESPONISIBLE.

As communists all over the world gather for the requiem and apotheosis of Mandela, I hope for that oh so famous South African "Kill the Boer" song to be shouted to the heavens by the faithful, so Jesus knows his flock is sending one of it's angels home.

1. That our current president, Jacob Zuma (who currently has 4 wives and at least 22 children) is in very hot water due to the building of a R210 million luxury private compound with public funds. And there is no way to get him out of it. Now with this news its not even a memory.

2. We are currently fighting a battle with the ruling ANC about an illegal and unfair e-tolling system on the freeways of our richest and most densely populated province. This has been a very bad blow to their support base and will effectively serve to destroy our economy at an even greater pace.

And most importantly:
3. We have national elections coming up next year and the ANC is facing a never before seen rise in distrust and lack of support. New radical political parties (google EFF and racism) as well as the utter wastage of tax money (last year R31 BILLION was lost due to wasteful expenditure - that doesn't include the nearly R600 billion that was stolen by public officals), inability to provide services (over 2000 service delivery protests this year), police brutality and corruption, failure of our educational system (we have university graduates who are functionally illiterate), their AA policies to protect the majority black population from the small 8% white population who are actively excluded from the formal economy and a hundred other things.
The only way they can get themselves any of their support back is to cash in on the legacy of their most beloved terrorist. They will use his death to get the sympathy vote next year just to make sure that they retain their majority and thus not lose their place at the trough of public funds which fund their lifestyles while the rest of the country descends further into poverty.

True I was born not hating niggers. I grew up as a child not hating niggers. Only in the past I'd say 20 years have I starting slowly everyday started hating niggers. In fact I never called them niggers. So who is to blame for me hating niggers? Only the niggers themselves.
