THE OMO MISHA
VOLUME VII 2005 october
a greasy me on vacation from life. if you look really closely,
you can see the lake and mountains in my eyes
I mean, really. Life is too short for excuses. I wasn’t here. I’m guilty. I did it (or didn’t do it, in this case). And furthermore, you’re probably sick of my excuses anyway!
Now let’s get on to what really matters…I’ve been gone a long time. I’ve got a lot to share!
In the past year or more A LOT has happened in the world: George Bush has been re-elected. - well…I shouldn’t go so far as to say he’s been re-elected, let’s just say he’s still in office – and all hell has broken loose on humanity; Gas has reached prices I, honestly, never thought I’d see, and; a gang of hurricanes has just ravaged the very area that produces this resource that our very President - his family and his comrades – profit from, personally. People, (black, white and other) we’ve gone from a comfortable bad to a very uncomfortable worse and, I just want to take this moment to say that it’s time for EVERYBODY to get up off their asses and do something!
Anyway, you’ll find a lot of resources here to help you determine how you would like to do just that. There are so many injustices in this world, in this country alone, that all you have to do is pick one. Just pick a cause and stand up for it. ‘ Don’t just talk about it – be about it!” Humanity requires that of us all right now.
Anyway, I just wanted to say “Hello” and that I’m happy to be producing The Omo Misha Times again! Despite the note that I’ve gotten off on here, I promise this issue will be frolic and fashion--filled, as well as informative, as usual. Thank You for joining me on this ride….!
In This Issue
Grafitti’s Prodigal Return
Black People Don’t Read???
An Alternate Look at Katrina
Fall Fashion Surprises!!!
Me, me, me….
I know it’s been a minute but... your remarks from the last issue are touching, nonetheless. Thank You for sharing your thoughts, as usual. I always, ALWAYS welcome your input…even if I don’t always understand it…?
Thanks for removing the "laziness" obstacle to our "knowing". Since our
glorious beginnings on the wondrous experiment that is this planet,
humankind has fallen short of its unlimited potential by allowing "the
other" to steer us in the paths of its perceived "self-interest". It is our
prayer that you draw many seekers to the preordained path of "co-creation"
with this marvelous cornea transplant technology of yours.
Peace & light.

I looked at your web page today and was thoroughly impressed with your designs and the wide scope of information you make available (along with links with more info). I copied and pasted some of the articles so that I could forward them to friends. Thank you for the time you've taken to pass along what you've learned. God and the Ancestors will bless you and yours. Take care sis!
thanks for the send of the new edition of the OMO Times....fun
stuff......here's a comment for you.....'maybe the game is really a joke
with the processed foods...do you suppose?......staying alive to a ripe old
age?...without accident or heartbreak?........I tell you, it's just a
demonstration of faith, no?.......whenever else is blue juice and plastic
spread an issue?.......laying on the table at the doctor's office and
confessin' about the pork chops?..........no, imitation food is the key to
real devotion......see all the folks still walking around and jumping
up?.......must be the air and not the stew!'
Congrats, Misha this is great. The Internet has really helped minority owned
businesses. We could be on a park bench somewhere but these websites help us
look soooooo goooood. Anyway I also write an Ezine for brides and I give
tips and ideas on how to plan your wedding. I have now over 1000 on my mailing
list. Most of the businesses I highlight are small and/or minority owned, we
need all the help we can get. I will definetly include oMo Misha Times in the
links. You've got great info hip couples want to know about.
Keep on going up I am so happy you keep creating.

The Times has gotten so much better, but where is the politics? This seems like the perfect moment. Global warming , Margarine you can do better than that, at least make somebody angry. I am curious to know what your readers think of think of these other points. Do you think you could ask for me?
1) Is Atkins really the death diet for blacks?
2) Is the democratic party obsolete?
3) Are teachers unions inherently racist or is the industry just out to lunch?
4) Is Michael Moore dangerous? Could he have existed without Oliver Stone?
5) If Depreciation allowances are welfare for corporations, then why are all the jobs now in china? Is it better for workers to actually give corps. welfare? Which is a worse job, building something in a factory or cooking hamburgers? Should we care? Do we actually want real jobs back? Who should? is it really a race issue? If i am the powers that be, do i want you as my labor force or do i want you to be my server today? How hard are we willing to fight to get them back? Is it even possible? Just asking. If you actually cared about any of this which party do you think would support the position?
6) Should i as a black man care about globalization, if i should, should i hate it or love it?
7) What kind of phone systems do they have in India to make it profitable for them to call me at dinner time so that i can just hang up on them? My phone bill domestically is a fortune, if they are calling me from India, what percentage of people have to say yes, to make it profitable. If it is that profitable, then why not do it from here?
8) Has anyone ever bought anything from these people from India who call? If so, what and why?
9) Finally is the United Nations the most expensive joke in the history of the world? Rwanda is okay, but the Israeli fence is wrong. Why? If i remember correctly isn't there a fence between the US and Mexico? i know there is one around the UN, you should see the one separating the Koreas which is dwarfed but the one separating China from North Korea and they are Allies. More importantly what did Jesse Jackson do in the Sudan that makes the Arabs think it is okay to kill or expel all of the Black Africans who have been living in the Sudan for centuries? Did someone discover more oil there or something? Can we be expecting to hear about a massive oil strike there in the near future? Do you think they will announce what percentage Jesse is getting? Why doesn't the UN care? That makes two genocidal episodes in ten years on black Africans and no one seems to think it is important. Did a memo go out and i miss it. "Kill the blacks", i don't really think it said that, it probably said something like "we can't afford to get involved" or "we don't have enough information", yeah that's the ticket, yeah that must be it, i don't read those memos. I guess i am now officially out of the loop, what happened? When did the lights go out? It must have been only the sub-regional that got the message. Yeah that's it, the sub-regional. It's really a communication problem.
How did the reader think you were a guy? you don't look, sound or write like a guy.
