Easy Microwave Chicken

You will need a Deep Covered Baker from Pampered Chef for this recipe.

Chicken breast halves
Olive oil
Roasted garlic seasoning ~or your favorite seasoning for chicken~
½ pkg of frozen Pepper and Onion blend

Brush chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning ~on both sides. ~ Place chicken in Deep Covered Baker. Depending on how many chicken breasts you use, you may have to layer them. Cover with frozen veggies. Cover and cook in microwave for about 8 minutes if you have 1 layer of chicken or 12 minutes if you have 2 layers of chicken.

You will not believe that this was made in the microwave. It’s moist and delicious. It’s great on a salad or by itself. Enjoy!

Easy Tilapia

Easy Tilapia

4 – 6 Tilapia filets
Olive oil
Garlic salt
Lemon juice
Parmesan cheese

Brush tilapia filets with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt on both sides. Place in casserole, splash with lemon juice and bake in a preheated 375 deg oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and put back in oven for about 2 minutes.

You can make this in the microwave, but you’ll need a Deep Covered Baker from Pampered Chef. To do this, place fillets in Deep Covered Baker, splash with lemon juice, cover and cook on high for 6 minutes; after sprinkling with parmesan cheese, cook for another minute. If you have to layer the fillets, it may take an extra couple of minutes. This recipe is perfect for doing in the summer. It is moist and tasty. My hubby can’t believe that it’s done in the microwave.

If baking in the oven, I recommend using a stoneware piece from Pampered Chef. You won’t believe the difference

Charlotte Wins! King Willie loses!

Great news for Memphis today. Charlotte Bergmann wins the GOP nomination for TN-9 Congressional district. Oppressive Liberal Steve Cohen beats "King" Willie in the Democrat primary. Cohen has already dismissed Charlotte as irrelevant and misguided. He refuses to debate her. How arrogant. Can't wait to see the look on his face, when he gets beat.

We need to reach out to AA moms and ask them how they like the failed schools for their kids and their neighborhoods being crime ridden. Tie the result of failed oppressive liberal policies to their day to day lives and Dem policies. We need to educate and engage Memphians. We can do this.

If the African-American community here in Memphis would think for themselves and actually learn what her beliefs are instead of just voting against her because she’s not a Democrat, they might be pleasantly surprised.

They need to ask themselves. How well has the Oppressive Liberal agenda really helped the black family?

Oppressive Liberals

I used the term “oppressive liberals” in a comment on a site and I was challenged to name some examples of such “oppression.” Here is my reply.

Let’s see, I’ll start with the oppression of those on welfare here in Memphis. First is our horrendous school system. Not only are many not learning the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, but they are also not safe. Why not give all parents the FREEDOM to choose the school that their children attend? Competition breeds excellence, but our children are stuck in a school system that has failed them.

Next we have failed them in their neighborhoods. Where is crime the highest? Neighborhoods that our government ~us the taxpayers~ subsidizes. Are you living in one of these high crime neighborhoods? I bet not. Why not? Because you have the FREEDOM to choose elsewhere because of YOUR hard work. The oppressive policies of the left give welfare recipients just enough to keep them in poverty with no incentive to work to get out.

Also, we try to replace the father with a check. Which do you think is better? A child with a father with a job who is taking responsibility for his family or a single mom ~most likely a teenager~ with no emotional or physical support? Men in the black community need to stand-up and take responsibility for their families instead of just being sperm donors; and young women in the black community need to be empowered to see that they are more than just sex objects.

I don’t know about you, but that’s what I would call oppressive.

The Perfect Storm

There’s a perfect storm brewing in Memphis. Congressional district TN-9 is one of the safest for Dems in the country; however this year, there is more interest than usual. Steve Cohen is the 1st white congressman from TN-9 since the 70’s. He was first elected in 2006 when Harold Ford, Jr, ran for the U.S. Senate and got beat by Bob Corker. This year our illustrious former mayor “King” Willie Herenton decided to challenge Cohen in the primary. Why you ask? Because “King” Willie is a master at race politics and states that TN needs a black representative for Congress.

I caught a Herenton supporter on the Ben Ferguson radio show a few weeks ago. Ben was asking her to name an issue that Herenton would be better than Cohen. She couldn’t; although she maintained that it had nothing to do with race. Cohen is as progressive as they get. The oppressive leftist in Washington wouldn’t get a more loyal voter in Herenton than Steve Cohen.
While I am no fan of Steve Cohen, I am an even bigger opponent of “King” Willie. What he has done to the Memphis City Schools first as Superintendent and then as Mayor for 18 years is really sad. It’s time for him to retire to private life.

The good news for Memphis and the USA is a lady named Charlotte Bergmann. I have long known that there are conservative blacks in Memphis and knew that the best way to beat the Dems was by calling out the true racism in Memphis politics. As Memphians, we have the opportunity to restore not only our country, but also our city to common sense solutions that lift up all of us.

What the oppressive liberal policies have done to the black family in Memphis is heart breaking. As Christians, we are to help the widows and orphans; not make them. By trying to replace the man with a check, the government has literally raised up a generation of widows and orphans. We complain about the crime here in Memphis. What’s the root cause of it? Men not having to take responsibility for their families, kids not having a father at home. A father that truly loves them and cares for them. The most accurate indicator of whether a child will live in poverty is whether they live in a single parent home or a two parent home. We have a school system that is failing our kids. They don’t know how to read, write or add and subtract. How are we preparing them for the real world, to get a job and get out of the cycle of dependence?

We have failed the black family. We need to take back our schools and city if for no other reason than to give real hope to the children of Memphis. We don’t do this by throwing more money at the problem. Enough has been thrown at it and it’s not working. We do it by getting back to the basics. Fathers taking responsibility, not just being sperm donors. Bringing competition into our schools by giving parents the freedom to choose the best schools for their kids by providing school vouchers. Making our neighborhoods safe. I can’t imagine what it’s like to fear for my kids while they are playing in their own yard. We must back police and help them. We can’t complain that the police don’t solve our crimes if we’re not willing to help them.

Charlotte Bergmann
is part of the solution. She believes in giving parents the freedom to choose the best schools for their children. She believes in the Constitutional right to bear arms. Criminals shouldn’t be the only ones with guns. She believes that every person is created in the image of God and will fight for those that can’t fight for themselves; even before birth. Without Life, there is no Liberty or Pursuit of Happiness. In addition, she sees the need to secure our borders and not give amnesty to criminal entrants. With unemployment so high in the black community, there are jobs that illegals take that could/would be done by Americans.

Help send Charlotte Bergmann to D.C. Vote August 5, 2010 in the Republican Primary for Charlotte Bergmann. And while you're there, Vote for Mark Luttrell for Shelby Co mayor.

“King” Willie is right. Memphis needs a black congressman; but it’s not him.

Someone doesn't know the Constitution

This is why the Ruling class needs to be defeated.

Better Bail Faster, Billy

It is criminal what the Dems led by BO have saddled our kids and grandkids with.
