Interviews by hesterbooks.com

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 20-05-2021


You know, I have had this web site for over twenty years now. My son fixed me up with it I believe in the year 2000. During that time I have spoken to several people and used what they said or reported to me but I don’t think any of them was a formal interview. At least one was black and several were brown and white. Today I read where the mayor of Chicago said that he would only give interviews to black or brown reporters. I really had no intentions to interview that person and I do not know him, one thing I can say with confidence that, “He ain’t white”…..A white mayor would not dare make a comment like that. America is no longer a level playing field. Blacks are not bigots, are they? Surely not…Not with all they have experienced…They would not act like that, er, would they? Black lives do matter….but I’m  beginning to wonder about us old white boys…

oops…..He is a she….She is black…..She is gay….She has been removed from my list of people to interview…


Stoning Stephen…Saul Giving Approval To His Death…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 15-05-2021


Yep…it says so right there in Acts 8.1, “And Saul was there giving approval to his death. Skip over to Verse two, “Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him.”  Verse 3, “But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.”

That’s quite the start for the church. And for some time Saul continued to be persecutor of the followers of the church. God caught up with Saul on the road to Damascus with letters to arrest  followers of Christ, but Jesus struck him blind, spoke to him telling him to get up and go into the city and there further instructions would be coming to him. Then, He told Ananias  to go to him. Ananias told God all he had heard about the evil doings of Saul of Tarsus. Acts 9.15, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer in my name.”  And thank goodness Saul became Paul, telling the  gentiles. Saul changed and did exactly what God asked of him.

There is a story in there for a lot of us. It tells of the power of our Lord and Savior. And we also need to listen to Him…. Paul spread the gospel story. And it is still being spread.

Yep, old Saul went from stoning Christians to spreading Christianity…Yep, Jesus got hold of him….

Marijuana….Now What

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 03-05-2021


Well, I’m confused, which is nothing unusual, but I read this morning concerning legalizing marijuana that there are presently about 330,000 people in jail for illegally using or selling marijuana, most of them black the article stated and it further states that it was a result of white business men taking advantage of poor black kids who went to jail for selling and using that marijuana while making them (the white businessmen) rich. ….Now that marijuana is being legalized those same white business men will become rich for doing the same thing that the poor black kids went to jail for, is what the articles states….

Am I being oversensitive here? Does that make sense to you? The key word to me here is “white business men”. I personally do not believe that is a true statement. I think black business men used black kids and white kids, to sell the stuff also and maybe there were more of them than there were of the “white business men” doing the using. Someone is doing some amazing deductions in the thought process and blame game, if you ask me…..

Wonder what will happen to the 330,000 prisoners when the marijuana does become legal in most states? Will they go free and use the selling skills for other products? I hope for the best if it does happen.
