Let's call it what it really is, The Mayor's Propaganda Breakfast. Hey I'm all for prayer, but this is all for show and scoring political points. I'm not for that. But hey it seems to work for the mayor. Maybe Deke can pray for some "courage" to actually make some controversial decisions.

This is a media/political
Unpublished

This is a media/political event using a church as their backdrop and wrapping themselves in religion. So I say put them to the test. If this is open to the public, then I think the public should attend and ask these so-called leaders to pray for strength and courage to actually take ACTION to change things for the better, and be specific.

The Boardman-Copenhaver

The Boardman-Copenhaver machine cultivates the churches carefully. Their machine is intricately entwined with the powers at the churches to turn out the vote.

Riverman.. that sounds like the old Charles Walker Machine. Sounds like Deke learned from the best.

Dichotomy, he and his cabal
Unpublished

Dichotomy, he and his cabal cronies are praying for more ways to get our tax dollars out on the southside to pay for all of their white elephant projects downtown that their friends benefit from.

At first I thought these

At first I thought these prayer breakfast meetings were an attempt to bring people together. Now the cynic in me says they were nothing more than an attempt to cultivate the black vote. And they worked amazingly well. Deke won 60% of the vote in a 55% black county. Anyone involved in politics in Richmond co. knows that preachers in certain districts hold much sway and basically tell the flock who to vote for.
Interesting that this is the first prayer breakfast I'm aware of since his "re-election"...Word on the street is that these same preachers haven't been invitng Deke as much as they were before the election. Kinda makes you wonder.
