Justice 20/20

Posted in Blog on July 15, 2013 by John David Reynolds III

This speaks for itself on the subject of why the prosecution is at fault for what happened in that trail. Their is plenty of evidence for dispelling reasonable doubt in the case. However they completely overlooked it… SOMEHOW.

90 Degrees to the Left

GZ injuriesLast night we witnessed a mockery of our justice system and what a prosecutor that doesn’t want to prosecute can do.

These are the pictures of George Zimmerman taken at the Sanford Police Department right after Trayvon Martin’s murder.

George Zimmerman claimed that Trayvon Martin was covering his mouth and that he was afraid to be suffocated, reason why he feared for his life and shot the teenager. If that was true, why there is no blood all over his face? A nose, when broken, bleeds profusely, he should have blood all over, but that is simply not the case.

The next two pictures are of the minuscule cuts on George Zimmerman’s head, another part of our bodies that will bleed heavily if cut. According to George Zimmerman accounts of what took place on that fatidic night, he was on the ground, facing up while Trayvon Martin was pounding his…

Sergio Oliva Tribute to The Myth

Posted in Blog, Motivation on November 13, 2012 by John David Reynolds III

November 12, 2012 the bodybuilding legend Sergio Oliva has died at the age of 71 years. He is said to have been suffering for some time from kidney disease.

Sergio Oliva

After many years as an activity that served mainly as a backdrop for weightlifting competition, bodybuilding in the 1960’s was emerging as a sport in its own right and one man from this era created a physique that set, for all time, the standard in physical excellence. 40 years later and the size and shape he created then has, in the eyes of many people, yet to be

This is a powerful article on the “R” word. I didn’t understand the meaning or the effect of saying the word because I really never was and still am not very good at dealing with other people’s emotions in social context. I am look at definitions of words and often I used them just as they are defined and well being the little book smart nerdy kid that I was I had a friend who had a learning disability when I was in Junior High school, he was actually a Junior in high school at the time. I called him the “R” word and he looked at me and in what had to be the most eloquent way possible he explained the significance of the word. I never forgot that, and I find the words here to be just as eloquent and beautiful. Bravo!

The World of Special Olympics

The following is a guest post in the form of an open letter from Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens to Ann Coulter after this tweet during last night’s Presidential debate.

Dear Ann Coulter,

Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow.  So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?

I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow.  I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you.  In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child…

This is a wonderful blog post… take the time and read it and learn about this self-made man and how he made it. There is a lot here that I can relate to and understand. I love it. I hope you enjoy it.

Whatever

To begin, my mother and father are responsible for me existing at all, so I suppose the first round of “How I made it to where I am” begins there.

I was born at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, CA, and as I understand it I was not the easiest of births, taking on the order of three days to be evicted from the womb. That couldn’t have been comfortable or safe either for my mother or for me, so thanks go to the medical team of doctors and nurses who helped with my birth. Likewise, the fact I was born at an Air Force base means that I owe a thanks to America’s military for offering medical care to my mother (based on her relationship to my father, who was in the military at the time), and indirectly to America’s taxpayers, whose dollars went to supporting the military…

This is a great article about Female Veterans that are running for Congressional Seats in the United States. I love to see women standing up for themselves and speaking out to make a difference for the rights and beliefs they deem as right. Way to go.

Female Vets Running for Congress: Into Double Digits
By DARLENE M ISKRA | July 20, 2012

U.S.

Four months back, I wrote about four female veterans running for Congress. It turns out they’re not the only ones, by a long shot.

And boy are they needed: in the 112th Congress, women only hold 16% of the 435 House seats and 17 of the 100 seats in the Senate. Amazingly, there are only 92 veterans in the House of Representatives, and 26 in the Senate, only one of which is a woman. That there are 10 women veterans running is historic in itself, it would be awesome if all or most of them are elected in November.
