RED STATE USA TOUR

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on RED STATE USA TOUR

The Harvey Boys Present

Red State, U.S.A. Tour

Movie SCREENING and Kevin Smith Q&A

Ever since Clerks (co-winner of the Filmmakers Trophy at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival), Kevin Smith has been known for his sharp, subversive, comedic writing. He shifts from comedy to horror with Red State and aptly demonstrates that good writing transcends genre.
Red State begins by following three horny high school boys who come across an online ad from an older woman looking for a gang bang. Boys being boys, they hit the road to satisfy their libidinal urges. But what begins as a fantasy takes a dark turn as they come face-to-face with a terrifying “holy” force with a fatal agenda.  Instead of relying on archetypes and predictable formulas, Smith meticulously fashions all-too-real characters, utilizing exceptional performances (notably by Michael Parks) and an intelligent script. His realistic style gives the film an intimate feeling, heightening the terror to biblical proportions. Red State is a shocking new kind of horror film that aggressively confronts higher powers and extreme doctrines with a vengeance.  (Credit, the Sundance Film Festival)

HOW DO LIES HURT OTHERS

HOW DO LIES HURT OTHERS

Read this piece and then ask yourself how you would feel if the same thing had happened to you.  How do lies hurt others?  How many lies have to be told to cover up the real truth?  How do these lies affect your lifestyle?  How do they affect society in general?  Most of all what can we do to come forward when we become a victim of a vicious prankster?  Please share your comments and your stories with us.  Tell us about your adventures from social sites.  Did you find what you were looking for or has it been an issue to constantly deal with?  We want to hear from our wonderful readers.

I’LL NEVER MISS YOU MY OLD FRIEND

Saying goodbye is never very easy

When you’ve been hurt a time or two

It’s time to let the world know now

Here is what I won’t ever miss about you

Three long hours, you yelling on the phone

No kiss, or warm hug, or nice little hello

It was just hurry up and get here baby

You’re late, and we have just got to go

Your stinking’ laundry clean or dirty

Now who would really ever know?

From all the papers and the nasty trash

Scattered everywhere from head to toe

As you doused yourself at night

With imitation “Cool Water” cologne

I got to know your wonderful brother

So I didn’t have to be there alone

I can remember shopping at the Sears store

Buying sets of sheets just to make a clean bed

Not knowing what else might be found

It was always something I would dread

Cock roaches, fleas, and the spiders

Who climbed all over the wall

Sleeping on your dirty sheets

That simply made my skin crawl

How could you live so dreadfully gross?

Your weekly bath always seemed to amaze me

Then you put on your crowd security uniform

From the dirty floor for all the world to see

I hated the mold from “science projects”

Those nasty dirty dishes scattered here and there

A thorough cleaning didn’t mean a thing

Cause you didn’t really even care

Bags of garbage I hauled downstairs

Many times I did this over and over again

Like “Mrs. Doubtfire” I never complained

But you couldn’t even hit the trashcan my friend

Mice scratching on the bathroom wall

Roaches crawling into the bathtub too

One loud scream but you didn’t hear me call

You said you had “better things to do”

I remember how I passed out once

Tossing water in my face without a care

When my migraine was so painful

It was more than any human could bear

I was always your knight in shining armor

Whenever you were physically or emotionally hurt

Playing taxi driver to get you some medical help

While you continued to treat me like dirt

When I met you on a MySpace page in 2008

From a magazine editor who thought you were great

You said you were calling me from a photo studio

But you were really just setting up the bait

I believed in someone who was said to be true

And that I admit was my biggest mistake

You have your story so down to a routine

It’s difficult to know that you are a fake

All of your profiles on social sites were lies

From the “crime scene photographer and instructor”,

To the ex-football player and the stripper too

But best of all a mistreated daddy and mentor

The abused husband and great security cop

A man of many unknown faces and disguise

Can you think of yourself as an honest man?

When all do you is live with more crazy lies

You knew that I was always honest and true

And you played a con game like a routine

Using your children who had been abused

Your sympathy pot was your greatest scheme

The truth should be told about how we met

As you completely lied to me through and through

You never finished high-school, don’t have a GED

Or any real training to actually compliment you

You told me you taught crime scene photography

Drove a police car and had to shoot a gun to qualify

But I found out law enforcement didn’t even know you

There was no class, cause it was all just a big lie

You didn’t even know the Chief of Police

You had a rap sheet in every surrounding county

I should have looked through court files first

But nothing you do will ever really astound me

You give the word Freelance a new meaning

Cause honey a Freeloader is what you really are

My gosh, you didn’t even have auto insurance

All those times you were putting miles on my car

If I had known the truth like I know now

I would never have wasted my time to meet you

You would never have been a friend

No matter what I was going through

You tried to talk me into buying a weapon

Telling me how bad you needed it for your work

But you had your weapon taken away from you

Because of what you really did, you crazy jerk

You’re constantly whining all the time

And your complaining almost everyday

I don’t miss the pouting and the silence

When things didn’t always go your way

And all of your violent temper tantrums

Whenever things didn’t go just right

Oh how many times I had to keep my mouth shut

So there wouldn’t be a terrible fight

I saw you alter several emails to forward them

To try to make you look like “a real prize”

Oh how I wanted to tell them all the truth

As the innocent read all your terrible lies

You took my pain pills from my suitcase

Yep, I know you’re a “pain pill junkie”

How many did you get from the streets?

Yeah, you’re really “a bad little monkey”

All those movies and CD’s I bought

And the childish games you had to play

All the meals I was forced to pay for

And all the gas expense along the way

I already had the experience that I vowed to learn

To start the online magazine in the year 2008

Oh yeah, you begged me to be a part of it

And everything was going to be just great

Truth be told you lied about the Metal Man

Who started a magazine with your stolen lap top

Using him to get into the concert shows

But when is this madness going to stop

You can still laugh at everything I bought

While you sit your dirty touché in my office chair

Everything to start a small business in KC

Then smile inside cause I won’t be there

All the business property you promised

Many times you were going to pay for

And your signed contract from May 2009

That’s something we won’t ever ignore

How you got me involved with the “metal man”

To get in good graces with “Live Nations” and “AEG”

Yep, you always think about your own self first

With no regard for what you all have done to me

You schemed, planned, and taunted my family

My friend, you play a vicious game so well

While you play the part of a broken hearted father

Who by his own fault may be doomed to living hell

You’re very demanding and self-centered

Well maybe you’re just “high strung”

Sometimes when I’d hear your pathetic voice

I’d hope someone would rip out your tongue

I hated how you used those three little children

Like they were just a pawn in a sick game

Playing the part of the innocent daddy

When the truth put most people to shame

What did you teach those precious children?

When you lie so much that I feel their pain

I know they’re in a much better place now

No need to let them know you could be insane

I loved those little precious children of yours

And all of your wonderful family members too

It’s really quite a sad moment in my life

When I think of what you put me through

The times I paid for other things

When I wanted to do something nice

Then I paid for a computer for the kids

Somehow I just kept paying the price

I should have looked at your criminal record

I would have never got involved with you

Or some of your master con friends

And the wicked games that they play too

I’m surprised they don’t check your performance

And watch how you really check the cars at night

Find out how you really did become so injured

Or how many times you may have started a fight

You take what you can while you beg for more

As you search for more female players on the net

You don’t know how much I’ve prayed for you

Cause you don’t have your act together yet

Those women better become more aware

Cause they really haven’t got a clue

Nobody will really ever understand

What it’s like being close to you

Your stories become greater and bolder with age

The lies have taken you in deeper and deeper

Looking at you is like seeing the devil himself

Being in a horror movie, waiting for the grim reaper

So when you talk on your cell phone

Use your blue tooth– gee I paid for that too

Ranting and running your demented and twisted tongue

Those minutes can’t add up to what I’ve done for you

You talk trash about the “bands” and record labels

You claim that “everyone owes you so much money”

Truth be told, it’s the other way around

But none of us think you’re very funny

Someday maybe they will search your backpack

Or catch you on camera as you so carefully steal

Oh one day soon, you will eventually slip up

While you search for the ticket of your next meal

You’ve altered photo passes at indoor concerts

You’ve even stolen lanyards right from the venues

You’ve taken things from your own work place

Yeah, honey you have even made the news

You tried to start a charge account using my name

With a photography store in NY over the internet

Don’t you know that fraud is a very serious crime

But this is something so dishonest that I will never forget

I have saved their letter for my evidence

In fact I have saved more than you will ever know

I even paid for your photography site on pbase

But really there is no studio for anyone to go

Yes I’ve saved all of your hateful emails

Especially your nasty phone text

And even on the ‘facebook’ walls

I never know what else I should expect

You create multiple accounts on social sites

You might even have one for each personality

But I have nothing to really hide from you

Yet, you still seem to want a piece of me

You’ve had several people you know threaten me

And many others who may want to do me in

But God knows I’m really not afraid of you now

He will guard me to guide me away from your sin

When I think of how you take advantage of your mother

Especially when she works hard to make ends meet

And how you sponge off of your dear brother

While you run your mouth and sit on your seat

It makes me feel so depressed and sick inside

You don’t seem to have any remorse

You’re a pathetic 40 year old child

Setting up a devastating crash course

I’m ashamed of myself for ever caring about you

Yes, that was my second big mistake

I shouldn’t feel sorry for the weak like I do

Life is not just a give—not just a take

I’ve built up a strong wall around me

And a solid foundation of great friends

With God to lead me on a better path

By the gracious message he sends

I met many women who you have used in the past

I’ve seen disturbing photos on your computer screen

Sometimes I wonder how long the next victim will last

As you stalk and plot against the innocent human being

Oh you may have the fools fooled for now

And your job probably doesn’t know the truth

But the evidence will all stack against you

And then watch the fireworks as they cut loose

I know you’ll just find a new “cash cow”

From all of those women you so befriend

But honey, I’m so done with you now

You get it– this is simply the beginning to an end

I guess you better work more hours to pay me back

I won’t be around to ever lend you a hand again

I still have impeccable proof and all of my receipts

Yeah honey, think fast…you owe me over “4 Grand”

While you TRY to destroy all of those around you

It’s all just simply just a matter of time

Theft, lies, vandalism, deception –what next

They’ll have all the proof to link you with the crime

You can tell people that I “sleep around”

Just to get “backstage” with all the bands

But when the law comes looking for you

It will be taken completely out of my hands

Go ahead and keep stealing my photos and things

You can say you’re a writer for many a magazine

Tell your side of the story to the news and radio shows

Just know— you’re the only one causing a scene

The more you try to do to hurt or destroy me

The more stories I’ll just have to write about

Your true colors will come shining through

Believe me—there’s absolutely no doubt!

It’s too bad the names had to be changed

To protect the guilty parties in this case

I’m really sorry that I ever believed in you

And I will never forget your changing face

You tried to turn my life into a terrible nightmare

When an “I’m sorry” would have meant so much

Though the more truth I’ve learned about you

Tells me there’s really nothing more to discuss

It’s time the real truth begins to show surface

But, I do hope you find a way to come clean

Before you find yourself and the gang locked away

And you all finally get to make the great jail scene

It’s too bad you and your little group

Don’t want to see the real complete truth

I was never seriously in love with you

But trying to get them to see it is no use

I’ve tried to keep you totally out of my life

Over and over again and again

You’ve got to start admitting your mistakes

Before you can move on my old friend

You never had anything more than just a piece of my heart

I know that you really never cared

Maybe it’s time for you to search your inner sole

Then remember the few good times we may have shared

You see you are nothing more than an ol’ memory

People can change when they get the help they need

You’ve got to focus on admitting your guilt from the lies

Before you are really ever going to fully succeed

I vow, if anything ever should happen to me now

Just think where they are going to look first

You may think you won the game this time round

Though now, you are the one who is forever cursed

You see you can take away material things

You can rant to low life trash like yourself

You better start seeing a professional doctor

Cause you’re not an idol for anyone’s shelf

Yes, I know about your anger management

It’s the violent nature of the savage beast

And the court file documents can always be seen

But you don’t seem to worry in the least

So how many times did you lose your kids?

Wow, you even got booked twice on “Jerry Springer”

You try to follow in your father’s footsteps

But honey, you’re actually an awful singer

Maybe we should find the old show archives

Then put them all up on you tube to see

But I couldn’t ever do something like that

To cause hurt to your many great family

You tried to upset my own son many times

You even threw your outrage at my spouse

So if you know what is really the best choice

You’ll keep your gang away from my house

You can constantly talk trash about me

As my family and friends keep movin’ on

You’ve tried to bring negative drama to pull us down

But we know we are dealing with a sick con

I gave up many a dear friend over the likes of you

Though friends may all come and go

Those who know me so very well

Say that “you will eventually reap what you sow”

If you think you are someone invincible

You better think long and hard again

Spend some time and go back to high school

Then start a new life my old dear friend

Yeah you are the great KC photographer

Oh we know how “you manipulated the vote”

But we saw all the angry and disturbed faces there

And news media was sure to take note

Keep living your lies like you are doing,

In sweet denial of all you do so wrong

Someday you’re going to be an old lonely man

Singing your same ol’ sad and sorry song

Oh sweet little man with the baseball cap

And the cargo style blue jeans doused in cheap cologne

Sit there and stare back at your computer screen

Then ask yourself “how does it feel to be alone”

I’ll never really miss you my old friend

Truth is you’ll never succeed in anything

So just lie.. lie.. lie.. like Pinocchio did

And then reap all the sadness you bring

Some people call you the “butt hole” of KC

Since they only see a small “stack of crap”

Like a mouse going after the cheese

Watch the springs bounce back from the trap

Even if you changed your attitude

Or you had a complete “remake”

Those of us who already know the truth

Would still see you as ‘the great fake’

Men like you are a dime a dozen

Honey, you’re not even a nickel’s worth

Now it’s time for me to fly so free

While you sit here and rot on this earth

Yes, I’ll never miss you my old friend

When I am gone your legacy will live on too

The true stories will spread like a wild fire

And that will be the last straw for YOU!

I guess you could call this piece, “a closure”

As I continue writing the chapters you seek

Sending scripts to others for safe-keeping

But honey, you won’t ever get a sneak-peek

You can call it your “chance at fame”

It may really only last a great minute

Now tell your goons to stay off my back

Cause their may be others written in it

They say “watch what you say to a true writer”

Cause your words verbatim may be in their next book

Suspense, thriller, romance, mystery, or more

No doubt, the world will have a new outlook

You see when you tell a lie you can’t go back

Then the drama you created just gets bigger

You could be responsible for someone’s own life

If the wrong person decides to pull the trigger

I don’t believe you will really ever come clean

Though for your family’s sake I wish you would

It would take one of God’s great miracles

For you to live by the truth like you should

Oh Yeah, I’ll never miss you my old friend

No matter where time may lead you to go

But “honesty will always be the best policy”

This is something that everyone should know

There’s one more thing I really need to add

Try learning to say I’m sorry and mean it when you do

Stop telling so many slanderous lies to others

Then turn to God to make the right choices for you

When you live by lies only hate and distrust

Is what you will gain by your disgust

You’ll never make it in the professional scene

Once word is out and you’ll see what I mean

Keep talkin’ your smack to put other’s down

Someday you will learn when there’s nobody around

I’ve said all I can for now but there’s more

Cause nobody knows what God has in store!

I’ve added this verse just for you my old friend

Since you care so much to read and vent

YOU were a project to see how con men live

And what I share now is Time Well-Spent

I’m sorry I never could love you back

The way your imagination thought I should do

Someday with God’s help you will get back on track

Forgiveness is divine when you can find that part of YOU


Dedicated to: My little Camera friend in the KC area…..I will pray for you!!!  May GOD help you.


About this piece—I hope my readers will learn something wonderful from it!

*  Watch out for internet scams. There are too many out there and innocent people get their lives turned upside down. Find out everything about the person before you ever meet them. Make sure that your involvement with them doesn’t cost you the important things like family and friends. Material things don’t really matter in the end, and you never seem to get back everything that you have lost. But stay safe—no matter what it costs.

*  If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn’t worth it. When people talk trash about you, those who are truly honest will get to know you before they pass a harsh judgment. You may hurt and go through living hell for awhile, but stay strong and ask God to help you. We learn by our mistakes, and sometimes they teach others too.

*  True friends will always come back to you and stand beside you when things get tough. You will learn about those who really became your friend just to use you for something that might benefit them. Although you may shed many tears from living in a nightmare, you’re not alone. Look for support groups if you need to, or talk to a medical professional.  You have to admit your mistakes before you can move on, even if they are just a simple mistake of caring about the wrong person.

*  Always, watch your back. Get to know your surroundings, and if you have to keep some evidence with you for protection then do it. Alert the police if you are traveling somewhere that someone might want to hurt you. Ask for an escort if you need to, or don’t travel alone. Stay alert! Stay alive!

*  When you receive threatening emails from other people who believe the lies then ask yourself what type of person they are and try to just ignore them too.  They are all just useless people trying to pull you and your family apart because they have a “sickness” and they all need to “seek help from medical professionals”.

*  Keep documentation of everything, and remember that even if you erase something from a computer; it can be found and traced. You will be caught if you continue doing wrong.  The FBI, KBI, and other Law Enforcement people will back you.  They are there to help and they want to catch the cons!  Internet stalking is a crime,  Internet threats are serious business.

LOOKING BACK….

Looking back at this experience helped me to know that there are many people who end up with sadness, threats, destruction, and more because of bad internet friendships.  You may never get the truth out there to the world, so just keep believing in yourself and do the right thing.  Stay honest.  Live by the golden rule!  Ask God to lead you and guard you and guide you.

For the people who opened their homes and their hearts to me, I will never forget how wonderful you were.  I will always love you even if I never speak to you or see you again.  Sometimes ties aren’t worth keeping but the great memories will always be there in spirit.

Don’t be so quick to trust someone. Find out if they have been completely honest with you. Sometimes goodbye really is your “second chance”!

********************************

If you are reading this article and the lengthy little poem but you also know a person who lives in a world of lies or fantasy dreams, then try to see some good in them.  Learn this from the article!  Don’t hate the weak, or the troubled minds for they need to get professional help.

I’ve been through vandalism, threats, thefts, and lots of terrible things in the past two years because these horrible people just won’t leave me alone.  “Cease and desist” meant nothing to them, and I continually get threatening emails and comments to posts.  I have been called the “jilted lover”, the “woman who is old”, the one who “should stay out of the Media world”, ” a certified crazy bitch”, “a girl gone mad” and even much worse by them and their followers.

But I think they forget the type of job I have to do every day and these words are just what they are…dirty words.  They don’t have the affect on me that these predators would like them to have.  I’m ready for whatever they want to dish out next!  It will be more paperwork for the courts.

I know these sad and confused drama seekers don’t have a clue because they want to stick up for this individual and the “gang of cons” that they all are.  Honesty is REAL!  Keep it real, and learn the truth before you spew your spit and end up in court .

Don’t throw your pearls before swine.  Don’t ever be ashamed to tell people the truth for you may be saving another person’s life.

I think the saddest thing is that you reach a point where you don’t care anymore what they say to you.  Lately I’ve been threatened again to be “sued for telling the truth, writing about the truth and trying to warn people before there is another victim”, but as you can honestly see when you read this article that there are no names posted here, and the author is also unknown !!!!

This is the true story of a man who is very manipulative and unless you have been personally involved in a business or personal relationship with him; YOU CAN’T POSSIBLY KNOW WHO HE IS! Those who have come forward with their own stories are helping this case everyday.  All I really want is to be able to do what I am doing without having to constantly look over my shoulder to protect my family and me as we continue to move forward doing what we love by helping others and spreading good words to bring comfort.

Eventually even their small group of followers will begin to notice when things are corrupt, and good people will not want to be dragged into a court battle because some man keeps trying to haunt and taunt.  Most important, it takes years to build a solid case against a criminal but when you do they will have plenty of time to regret the things they have done.

The problem with all of them is that music, art, and entertainment is a “drive”. Vow to tell the truth no matter how much it hurts!

I pray for them in the hopes more lives won’t be destroyed because of their hateful and childish acts.

You see, I work where people have done wrong and they hit “rock bottom” after it’s too late.  I have seen people saddened when they are alone because their family and friends have abandoned them.  I have heard the cries of many.  I bear my own pain in sadness, but I gain strength from my prayers.

I have found that doing right will pay off, and when you work with an honest competitor both businesses are extremely successful. It’s those that think they are better than others and have placed false judgment on good people that will fail in the end.  You eventually learn to make something positive out of all the negative that you keep running into, and you know if anything ever happens the law will know right where to look first.

Each day, I pray for these people because somehow they need to reach deep into their hearts, minds, and souls and move on. My family and I are closer than ever now because of all the drama they brought into my life. We are more aware of who we trust and we do our research before getting involved.  I hope that God blesses each and every one of my enemies and that they learn when to just give up and let me live my life with the man I love, my husband and best friend.

******************************************

Note:  People will be amazed at how violent the internet can be when people use it for all the wrong reasons.  Tell us your stories!  Share the POSITIVE COMMENTS that will help others.  If you come here to rant negatively with your hormones outta wack,; save it for court because it will be among the paperwork sent off already.

Lastly….camera friend, I don’t hate you!  I hate what you do!

Because of you, the man I of my dreams and I share the most wonderful life of love where two hearts beat as one.  I hope someday, you can ask for forgiveness and truly repent for what you have done to me and other women like me.  There’s hope…..find GOD!  Remember this to:  Words really don’t mean a thing to me cause I know of what you are, and no matter what you do; you’ll never go very far!  Change my friend!  Tell the truth!  Just BE HONEST!

Kansas City Photographer Creates Attention!

BANNED member of AFRESH ENTERTAINMENT Magazine staff!


William E. Parks (Willie) {Jr} – A Freelance photographer – BONNER SPRINGS KS

New fascinating true life articles, and the astonishing true life story coming soon! 

Watch for the new biography novel to be released in 2011!

Story-line:

Recently a Kansas City photographer was on a radio talk show near Kansas City in a final attempt to degrade and terrorize innocent people to create attention for himself and the radio show; so we are posting this press release to accommodate his professional needs!  Several telephone calls were also made to additional Afresh Entertainment Magazine staff members and close friends to try to cause an uprising for media professionals in Kansas.  Admission of guilt for vandalism and theft events were also mentioned during this conversation from the “festival of thieves” as well as the names of the persons (suspects) directly involved with the  terrible incidents Afresh Entertainment staff members and other attendees endured while covering a music event for mid-western Kansas.  Negative statements were said, “I’ll deny everything even if you taped it.”

We will have more on this story as it develops further as well.  Due to the events that took place shortly after the radio show, comments were left on social sites such as facebook, twitter, and other blogging sites.  Ongoing bizarre events and phone calls have been happening since October 2009 and more recent thefts, threats, and vandalism have also taken place in areas of Kansas.  Suspects have been turned over to investigators and other detectives as well as phone records, blog posts, social site posts, emails, etc. just this past month.  Additional steps to protect innocent people have been put into place.  Any tips or leads to catching these people will be greatly rewarded through the crime-stopper programs throughout Kansas.

It is saddening that a true friendship could have been a blessing, but the bridge has been destroyed beyond repair.  Phone calls to reconcile differences were totally ignored due to the negativity it brought into the lives of others.  As we believe that a positive attitude brings the best results, it is our hope someday others will realize the damage they are doing will only make things worse for them all in the long run.

The conversations concerning the Kansas City Entertainment awards for 2009 which were given out in May 2010 were also mentioned on the radio show.  Several of Afresh Entertainment Magazine staff members attended the fine event; however the official rules of the contest were not followed by many of the award nominees as they did not show up to accept and/or acknowledge their own awards or make the prior arrangements for someone to accept them on their behalf.

In following the event further, the organizer of the wonderful event said, “Each year this will be better and bigger!”  The major focus of the event was to give something back to not only the community of Kansas City but to those who work hard to help bring news and professional business ventures to the city.  Those dedicated and devoted to the entertainment world of Kansas City are warmly welcomed to participate each year.  To see photos of the  award night  watch the slide show below:

Willie Parks was named Photographer of the Year; however he did not show up to claim his KC Entertainment Award Trophy as the rules stated in the contest.  Since we still regard him as a fairly good  photographer; the trophy was accepted by a member of the Award event and the Afresh Entertainment Staff still made sure that he received his trophy to put on his wall of fame.  Rules for the next year’s event will change somewhat to create a better contest for everyone who is nominated.  We look forward to attending next year’s event.

In 2011 an exclusive novel will be released to the public with some shocking information about professional behavior and ethics of the media world; and some of the events that lead up to the crimes that happened to the innocent victims.  It will be a must have for all libraries!  Be sure to contact Afresh Entertainment Magazine to get your name on the list now for an autographed version once the novel is released.

*************************************************************

A very important message for social net-workers: (It’s always best to learn as much as you can possibly learn about someone before your friendship leads you into a world of destruction, terror, or worse from negativity!)

********************************************************************

EXPERT ADVICE:  Please get to know the path you choose and who you choose to walk with you!  Be sure to choose your true friends wisely. Get to know those they are freely talking about with a negative tongue before you pass harsh judgment on them or get yourself involved in malicious pranks that could cost you your family, friends, and your future; for you too, can become a victim if you do not do all your research first.  You may be making the wrong decisions!

***********************************************************************

Ask yourself this:

  • Does my family approve of how I act?
  • How does my actions affect my children?
  • Am I doing the “right thing”?
  • Am I headed for self-destruction of the worst kind?
  • Do I need to seek professional help before it is too late?
  • Have I really ended a friendship over stupidity?
  • Will  I ever be able to tell the truth?
  • How will others feel when they find out the real truth?
  • Will I destroy my potential career because of bitterness & jealousy?
  • Have I taken advantage of someone to the point that it hurt other family members?
  • Did I attack someone’s child with my negative behavior?
  • Have I looked at myself in the mirror lately and said I am proud of my accomplishments?
  • Do I try to make things better for myself or do I look for an easy way out?
  • Am I a financial burden on others?
  • How do all of my family members really feel about my behavior?
  • What am I really teaching my children to be when they grow up?
  • What does the future hold for me if I don’t try to change?
  • How many people have I really hurt?
  • Can I be proud of my behavior when my grandchildren are growing up?
  • Did I turn my back on others because of all my lies?
  • How can I make things right again?
  • Is there a chance to improve my behavior?
  • How will my boss and co-workers feel if they knew the truth?
  • What if ????

It’s never easy to tell the truth when the lies are so deep, but honesty is always the best policy if you want to keep a good reputation and make friends who will stand beside you when things are rough!

***********************************************************************************

Kansas City, MO – October 8, 2010 – The America’s Got Talent Live 24-city tour, a traveling re-creation of the #1 NBC TV show, kicked off in Oakland, CA on Oct. 1 and will be at The Midland By AMC in Kansas City on Friday, October 15.

Additionally, the incomparable Jerry Springer acts as host and MC.

Classical singer Jackie Evancho will be appearing at select tour dates, as her parents have determined that it is in the 10-year-old’s best interest not to overextend her tour performance responsibilities. Evancho will appear at upcoming tour stops in Minneapolis, MN; Milwaukee, WI; New York, NY; Richmond, VA; Boston, MA; Washington, D.C. and Greensboro, NC.
