Never Ever Never

Ok, not to much today, although I do feel like bussing John McCain out for his statement last night: "whose descendents arrived on the Mayflower to the Latina daughter of migrant workers…".Wonder why he didn’t include those of us who came as slaves?

Any who, today’s sermon is for the grown and adult. Nothing erotic, just for them folks that take care of themselves and their communities and except personal responsibility via action. These are just some things I firmly believe in. So with each of the following I just want you to preface each statement with Never Ever Never.

  • Ask a person to pit their children against each other or attempt to divide children, especially if they are brother and sister.
  • Suggest or tell another person what to do or how to run their household.
  • Think of your self before your children.
  • Take or make use of a service without paying or having the loot to pay for such service.
  • Take pain pills after surgery if you are a single parent, and you have kinds in your home that depend on you. (I never do after oral surgery because I know how hard they make me sleep when I don’t have kids). Not to mention, today up in this camp a woman did such and her foster child was left in the car and suffocated to death.
  • place anything EARTHLY over your family
  • Have sex or make out with your woman’s/man best friend, even after you break up if you value friendship.
  • Bite the hand that feeds you.
  • Blame others for your lack of effort or hard work.
  • Loose control and allow others to distract or upset you
  • Live beyond your means; buy tennis shoes, or go to the club, when you have not paid your bills or don’t have food in your home to cook and eat.
  • Live to keep up with the “Jones’s.”
  • Follow others, but rather lead, even if no one follows you.
  • ask folk to do for you what you wont do for them or yourself
  • Feel sorry for yourself and fail to acknowledge the blessing you have in your life
  • Think or accept what you see on television as being news, or factual or the truth without looking up or checking out the information for yourself.
  • Gossip

So take that with ya jones, and have a great weekend, of to class for me folk.

good list. I have to work on a few of those myself, namely living beyond my means and losing control because of others. It's a daily struggle.

enjoy your weekend.

Never Ever Never
Forget that choosing LOVE over Fear is the real revolution.

Never Ever Never
Forget That extending one's hand in love and friendship is nation and community building.

Never Ever Never
Forget that when someone loves you they have your best interest at heart...always.

Great list All-Mi-T! Have a fantabulous weekend!

blackgirlinmaine said...

Kayos said...

I likes. I say everything on here is right. Can I add...

Never Ever Never not protect yourself when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex on anything.

RealHustla said...

Hmmm, this list seems sincere but impromptu, possibly inspired by some recent interactions and I am nosey. Thanks anyway for these great reminders.

This is a great list to live by. I hope you have a great weekend as well!

MP said...

torrance, the following is an addition to an earlier comment of yours about issues surrounding Euclid. In this case, the subject is Einstein, what he did, didn't do, and why the important thing is that we now have the knowledge, which is more important than the names of the people responsible for presenting it to mankind.

Great and Imperfect
September 5, 2008; Page A13
Einstein's Mistakes
By Hans C. Ohanian
(Norton, 394 pages, $24.95)

"Ask anyone where E=mc2 comes from and you will invariably be told "Einstein." The name is forever paired with the famous equation, and the two together -- emblazoned on T-shirts, public monuments and book covers -- are synonymous with genius, like the image of the wild-haired physicist himself.

"The problem is that Einstein was not the first to discover the equation: It was known for several years before he presented it in his celebrated 1905 paper, "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on its Energy-content?"

"Nor was the proof that he provided there complete. It was only in 1911 that the physicist Max von Laue offered a full proof of the startling assertion that energy equals mass times the speed of light squared -- a truth that has ever since affected our understanding of matter and motion, not to mention the fabric of the universe itself.

"Einstein tried for years to come up with better proof of his own but could never get it quite right."

Keith said...

Love this post...I did do one of those once...Took some pain killers after a root canal once when my daughter was little and fell asleep. Woke up , she had half of my wife's clothes draped
all over the living room floor and
had make up and lip stick all over
her face. She doesn't remember, but of course..I do..So when I read your post and saw that example..I had a good laugh. You have a good weekend too man.

Gemini Girl aka GG said...

thanks for stopping by raw dawg! how's the shop??
I agree with all of these never evers cept the one that says "think about your kids first" a mother I used to put the kids before myself and think only of them and their wellness..but I found out the hard way that I must take care of myself..mentally, physically and emotionally before I can truly take care of them...of course I put them first and foremost relationship wise ;)

T.C. said...

always on point...

Big Cheekz said...

Never Ever Never
Forget that choosing LOVE over Fear is the real revolution.
so so true.

regarding the sentence in red from the post, i had the misfortune of hearing that televised political noise & hoopla in the background last night as i was doing other things. that line & its noninclusiveness is the the only thing i remember.

not surprised. no expectations.

Traycee said...

I remember when I had major surgery..I didn't take pain medication b/c I was afraid I wouldn't wake up if I needed to for the kids..Hahahaha..I just suffered through the nite till their father got home from work....People said I was crazy for that...But I was just trying to stay alert for the kids...

Oh...I can't stand being around someone who is always feeling sorry for themselves..Its depressing

Aunt Jackie said...

Never Ever Ever think what you see on TV is real...take it from me, we put allot of time energy and effort into creating illusions!

Exquisitely Black said...

Great list, would add Never Ever Never give up on your dreams.

Thought about teaching, don't think I have it in me :-) Have a good weekend and fun with class.

KIKI said...

No truer words could have been spoken! Definately words to live by.

Have a great weekend T!

Meikmeika said...

Great List!! I agree with everything except for gossiping....LOL!!!!

Sugarlips said...

Very, very true. Good post!

Keli said...

I don't have kids and I am not fond of pain pills...had my wisdom teeth removed and left those things sister's friend has knee surgery back in HS, and it did not take her long to become addicted to the pain medication...

I so feel ya on the flossing for folks, but your household is not in order...but I really wanted those $200 jeans...but now I have to get an extension on my electricity bill...not sexy.

Submariner said...

I love the one about pain after surgery.

James Tubman said...

msladydeborah said...

What a nice way to end the work week. As you know I love good brain food!

Garth Sullivan said...

never ever believe the hype or let others think for you.

Skoolboi Krush said...

Great list, T! Especially the one about feeling sorry for yourself and not acknowledging your blessings.

Pajnstl said...

Great list!

enjoy yourself this weekend :)

Stuck in my head said...

"Loose control and allow others to distract or upset you"

So true, yet, for me, especially when it involves issues related to me or people I hold dear, it can be hard not to do this. But I try to stop myself and bring myself back to center when it starts to happen.

Can't let others control my inner peace.

The Dreamy One said...

CaroleMcDonnell said...

Have a great weekend! When folks start talking about the mayflower I also kinda cringe. They forget the Native Americans, the Spanish settlements before the mayflower, the Euro-pean blacks who arrived before the Mayflower with the dutch, and the African slaves. they need to get their history books multicultured. -C

Jayde said...

You do have a good point about the slaves! John McCain....UCK! He can eat my dust!

Those were some interesting things/lines to live by or note to one's self. I agree & disagree with some, but we all have our opinions to live on..

Mocha Dad said...

Good post. These are definitely words to love by.

MsMarvalus said...

These are excellent words to live by...thanks for sharing...

Meikmeika said...

I've been obsessed with finding a job...still having faith something will come along soon.

Even though you may not see me commenting I am reading your posts religiously. said...


Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

Anonymous Jayde

Anonymous Mocha Dad

shine said...

Second to last comment--so true.

Mizrepresent said...

Love the list...and i completely agree.

Never ever Never - forget that respect is earned.

Seven said...

"Ok, not to much today, although I do feel like bussing John McCain out for his statement last night: "whose descendents arrived on the Mayflower to the Latina daughter of migrant workers…".Wonder why he didn’t include those of us who came as slaves?" LMAO! You are so RIIIIIIGHT about that.

"Have sex or make out with your woman’s/man best friend, even after you break up if you value friendship." <---I tried explaining to an associate that I would never mess with a mutual friend because I used to deal with his cousin (Firefighter). That's just nasty and screams jump off in their case.

"Live beyond your means; buy tennis shoes, or go to the club, when you have not paid your bills or don’t have food in your home to cook and eat." AMEN!!!

"Feel sorry for yourself and fail to acknowledge the blessing you have in your life" Hallelujer!!!

"Think or accept what you see on television as being news, or factual or the truth without looking up or checking out the information for yourself." RIIIIGHT!!!

T.Allen-Mercado said...

Great list. I am so guilty of allowing folks to "drive my bus". Sometimes I get so angry over trivial matters. I'm a work in progress, point is-I'm working on it. I hope you had a fabulous weekend.

Linda said...

I can just say..... amen! ;)

greetings from holland!

Tera said...

"Lose control and allow others to distract or upset you..."

I DEFINITELY need to get better about this one...

Katrina said...
