Ray Rice Wins Appeal, Reinstated to NFL

Decision comes same day as Janay Rice recounts hotel elevator incident.

Ex-Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice won his appeal Friday for the indefinite suspension that the NFL slapped on him back in September. He has now been reinstated to the NFL, ESPN is reporting. Rice is now free to sign with any NFL team.
This ruling marks a victory for Rice, who was suspended indefinitely by the league after video footage surfaced of him punching his then-fiancée, now wife, Janay Rice, in a hotel elevator, knocking her unconscious. The domestic violence incident occurred in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, hotel this past February.

Rice’s appeal was heard by ex-U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones earlier this month, before she ruled that the NFL crossed the line in changing the rusher’s original two-game suspension after they saw the damaging surveillance footage of him punching his then-fiancée. Part of Jones’s hearing was listening to league commissioner Roger Goodell testify about the ordeal.

Friday’s decision comes on the same day Janay Rice recounted the entire February incident to ESPN’s Jemel Hill.

“There was something different about that day. The two of us were just off, starting that morning. I was annoyed because it was Valentine’s Day and Ray and one of his friends had planned a group trip to Atlantic City, while I had wanted to do something with just the two of us,” Janay Rice begins explaining.

She continues to explain that they each became intoxicated, before violence erupted.

“As we were arguing, he was on his phone and not looking at me,” she recalled. “I went to reach for his phone, and when he grabbed it back, he spit at me and I slapped him. We got into the elevator and what happened inside is still foggy to me. The only thing I know — and I can’t even say I remember, because I only know from what Ray has told me — is that I slapped him again and then he hit me. I remember nothing else from inside the elevator. The next thing I do recall is being in the casino lobby, surrounded by cops.”

She states that she and the NFL running back have made strides in her relationship since then, despite having to relive the painful February ordeal months later.

Colorado Marijuana Stores Offer Seasonal Discounts on ‘Green Friday’

That’s right ” Black Friday Weed” sales, with 80% off regular price, you go DENVER, CO.  lol lol

Many stores in Colorado were marking the first official “Green Friday” after the state legalized recreational marijuana. Retailers like Denver’s Grass Station were employing traditional Black Friday tactics in the hope that sales will attract large crowds. “There’s no question that there are going to be people here excited,” said Ryan Fox, owner of the store that was offering early birds 80 percent off marijuana on Friday. “It’s a great opportunity for us to have a big weekend.”

Evergreen Apothecary, another weed-selling store in the city, was giving 15 percent off to anyone who mentions “Green Friday.” Owner Time Cullen said: “We’re going to offer deals like every other retailer and try to bring people to the door.” But not everyone is happy. “Dumping high levels of THC into pumpkin pies, sweet potatoes, hot chocolate and marshmallows, it is just perpetuating this false myth that marijuana is not dangerous,”

Commentary by- Mr. Alvin L.A. Horn

What we need is, The Spook What Sat Behind The Door. Read the book, WATCH THE MOVIE it is on youtube…The point of it, until the “man” has his body dead in a body bag fear of us, he will keep killing young black men and call us demons and make us out to be superhuman animals that he had to kill. I have 4 human grandsons and a son and nephews, and cousins….I live in a fear as whites have no clue of the heart wrenching hurt as most have no understanding of the rage and fear I feel.

I don’t agree with the looting, but so fucking what a few fucking TV’s went home. Yeah lets change the conversation to the looting and bypass how the fuck we got here. Tearing up your hood that is already fucked, and we want to talk about that until the conversation turns to how we got here. I’m speaking to to all parties Black and white are lacking in doing the right thing. That prosecutor stood up there and mocked a community. He was trying to incite and he did just that. Yet Black folk how is it he is your voted in civil servant?

Until you give them a real reason to fear you by going after their own they will never leave us to live in peace. Until you hit them where they live they will keep coming in our hoods hunting us. We should all be able to go in a Walmart and pick up a toy gun and not be murdered, but only black boys are being slaughtered.

Their fears of us is manufactured for profit going back to the days of the Romans and Europe coming out of the dark ages. Real fear is payback in that we can get to you anytime you step over the line and one of yours will be gotten.

Ask of us, why is George Zimmerman still living? Now let me make this perfectly clear I am not advocating the killing of white folks. That would be killing to many people I love as human beings who would die for me. I am speaking of the hardcore racist who is targeting black boys. Their clan-klan are not off limit in my book. As we seem to be in hunting season years around, we need protectors who are pro-active to send a message an eye for and eye for racist actions, and the rapist, and killers of any race. You want to see shit change, shit will change when you know you can be got!

Although my last book had romance and erotic moments, it had a squad of avengers to go after the wrong doers that a justice system did not or could not give us all, one safe place.

By Any Mean Necessary, can’t continue to be a slogan, it has to be an action. Yes this is Alvin speaking. An angry Black Man on fire, who you slap me and I’m going to slap the shit out of you. How is that for all you folks who say violence only brings more violence, when all Black folk have been receiving is violence from the man.

Thank you Mr. Horn for your comments.

Observations by Mr. Alvin L. A. Horn

To some of my white associates, many of your posts are ill timed in the face of your friend, me, or whatever you think I am or was. I and many Black people are hurting and angry for many things related to what has happened in more of the historical perspective, as we are haunted by the ghost of Emmit Till and our great grandfathers who swung from trees from men with badges and sometimes hoods. Whether you think the police are justified or not your posts show you are ignorant of our pain by what you post in the light of what has happened.

Your trains of the thought on rioting, you need to know whites riot more often than blacks, look it up, and even right now, there is more white rioters out there than black, or is your TV’s in Black and White and you can’t see clearly?

Your trains of thought on Black on Black crime is more of a Black problem you post as if we should then ignore modern day lynchings of unarmed Blacks. Oh those guns come from, where? Shall we ignore where those guns come from, and why they are sold to black youth, it reeks of more ignorance and lack of historical perspective of the violence whites have wrecked havoc on people of colors for hundreds of years and decades later before we had guns coming into our hoods. I can assure you Blacks don’t go into white hoods and break in and steal guns
I know asking you to have empathy would be asking for you to think about others in pain, but, I know your actions show you don’t care about Black lives, my babies. You don’t care about my breaking heart…you don’t care.

I do want you to know if anything ever happens to one of yours, I’ll come to check on you and ask sincerely how can I make it better, That’s just me, and the God in me. When I do come to support you, I’ll have to meet your friends who co-sign on your posts, with even uglier trains of thought, but I will come,..friend.

Another Uneducated Fool – Satya Nadella

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently told an audience full of women in technology that they shouldn’t ask for raises. That instead they should rely on “karma” for career advancement.
The CEO knew he had messed up, and almost immediately posted an apology onto Microsoft’s website.  (1)
The thing is: an apology isn’t enough. We need more than words to prove that this was just a slip up, and not a mentality that pervades Microsoft. We need evidence that the company is truly committed to diversity and inclusion.
For Black people, this isn’t just a women’s issue. Black men earn 73 cents for every dollar a white man earns, while Black women earn only 64 cents. (2)
If Black men and women are ever going to have a fair shot at Microsoft, or anywhere in the tech industry, big companies need to make their salary statistics public. We need to know how much Black folks are earning compared to their white counterparts.
We’re going to be waiting a long time for equality if we wait for karma to kick in. For-example, the pay gap has barely budged in a decade, and last year it got even worse for Black women. The pay gap takes $18,650 out of Black women’s pockets every year. (3) And since the recent financial crisis, the racial wealth gap has doubled: white families now have 22 times the household wealth Black families have. (4)
Microsoft is one of the biggest technology companies on the planet and employs 99,000 people – more than Apple or Google. (5) Despite a public commitment to diversifying their workforce over the last twenty years, less than a third of Microsoft employees are women, and only 3.5% are Black folks. That means the company’s workforce has four times fewer Black people than the American population. (6, 7)
With the CEO’s recent “karma” comment, the country is paying attention to what Microsoft does next. By taking action right now we can ensure that Microsoft releases its pay data — a crucial step in ensuring pay equity for Black people.

Made you laugh, lol lol

Some Oldies but a nice way to start the week
A married Irishman went into the confessional and said to his priest, ‘I almost had an affair with another woman.’ 

The priest said, ‘What do you mean, almost?’ 

The Irishman said, ‘Well, we got undressed and rubbed together, but then I stopped.’ 

The priest said, ‘Rubbing together is the same as putting it in. You’re not to see that woman again. For your penance, say five Hail Mary’s and put $50 in the poor box.’ 

The Irishman left the confessional, said his prayers, and then walked over to the poor box. 

He paused for a moment and then started to leave. 

The priest, who was watching, quickly ran over to him saying, ‘I saw that. You didn’t put any money in the poor box!’ 

The Irishman replied, ‘Yeah, but I rubbed the $50 on the box, and according to you, that’s the same as putting it in!’ 

Lemon Squeeze

There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession. 
Upon entering the confessional, she said, ‘Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.’

The priest said, ‘Confess your sins and be forgiven.’ 

The young woman said, ‘Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.’ 

The priest thought long and hard and then said, ‘Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.’ 

The young woman asked, ‘Will this cleanse me of my sins?’ 

The priest said, ‘No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.’ 


Catholic Dog

Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, ‘Father, my dog is dead. Could ya’ be sayin’ a mass for the poor creature?’ 

Father Patrick replied, ‘I’m afraid not. We cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there’s no tellin’ what they believe. Maybe they’ll do something for the creature.’ 

Muldoon said, ‘I’ll go right away Father. Do ya’ think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?’

Father Patrick exclaimed, ‘Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn’t ya’ tell me the dog was Catholic? 


Father O’Malley answers the phone. ‘Hello, is this Father O’Malley?’ 

‘It is!’ 

‘This is the IRS. Can you help us?’ 

‘I can!’
‘Do you know a Ted Houlihan?’ 

‘I do!’ 

‘Is he a member of your congregation?’ 

‘He is!’ 

‘Did he donate $10,000 to the church?’ 

‘He will.’


An elderly man walks into a confessional. 
The following conversation ensues: 

Man: ‘I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I picked up two hitch-hiking college girls. We went to a motel where I had sex with each of them three times.’

Priest: ‘Are you sorry for your sins?’ 

Man: ‘What sins?’ 

Priest: ‘What kind of a Catholic are you?’

Man: ‘I’m Jewish.’ 

Priest: ‘Why are you telling me all this?’ 

Man: ‘I’m 92 years old . . . . I’m telling everybody!’ 

Brothel Trip

An elderly man goes into a brothel and tells the madam he would like a young girl for the night. 
Surprised, she looks at the ancient man and asks how old he is. 

‘I’m 90 years old,’ he says. 

’90?’ replies the woman. ‘Don’t you realise that you’ve had it?’ 

‘Oh, sorry,’ says the old man. ‘How much do I owe you?’ 


An elderly man went to his doctor and said, ‘Doc, I think I’m getting senile. Several times lately, I have forgotten to zip up.’
‘That’s not senility,’ replied the doctor. ‘Senility is when you forget to zip down.’ 

Pest Control

A woman was having a passionate affair with an Irish inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying

on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly. 

‘Quick,’ said the woman to the lover, ‘into the closet!’ and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked.

The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet. 
‘Who are you?’ he asked him.

‘I’m an inspector from Bugs-B-Gone,’ said the exterminator.

‘What are you doing in there?’ the husband asked.

‘I’m investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths,’ the man replied. 

‘And where are your clothes?’ asked the husband. 

The man looked down at himself and said, ‘Those little bastards! ‘ 

Marriage Humour 

Wife: ‘What are you doing?’ 

Husband: Nothing. 

Wife: ‘Nothing . . . ? You’ve been reading our marriage certificate for an hour.’ 

Husband: ‘I was looking for the expiration date.’ 


Wife: ‘Do you want dinner?’ 

Husband: ‘Sure! What are my choices?’ 

Wife: ‘Yes or no.’ 

Stress Reliever 

Girl: ‘When we get married, I want to share all your worries, troubles and lighten your burden.’ 

Boy: ‘It’s very kind of you, darling, but I don’t have any worries or troubles.’ 

Girl: ‘Well that’s because we aren’t married yet.’ 


Son: ‘Mum, when I was on the bus with Dad this morning, he told me to give up my seat to a lady.’ 

Mum: ‘Well, you have done the right thing.’ 

Son: ‘But mum, I was sitting on daddy’s lap.’ 


A newly married man asked his wife, ‘Would you have married me if my father hadn’t left me a fortune?’ 

‘Honey,’ the woman replied sweetly, ‘I’d have married you, NO MATTER WHO LEFT YOU A FORTUNE!’ 


A wife asked her husband: ‘What do you like most in me, my pretty face or my sexy body?’ 

He looked at her from head to toe and replied: ‘I like your sense of humour!’ 


Husbands are husbands 

A man was sitting reading his papers when his wife hit him round the head with a frying pan.
‘What was that for?’ the man asked.
The wife replied , ‘That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your trouser pocket.’
The man then said ‘When I was at the races last week, Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.
The wife apologized and went on with the housework.
Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him unconscious.
Upon re-gaining consciousness the man asked why she had hit again.
Wife replied. ‘Your horse phoned’

Let us pray………………….
Give me a sense of humour, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.
