Muhammad Ali dead at age 74

Quote:
Muhammad Ali, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion who famously proclaimed himself "The Greatest" and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing, is dead.

Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, a family spokesman confirmed to NBC News. He was 74.

"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening," Bob Gunnell, a family spokesman, told NBC News.

The guy was too smart... he could have single handily put a wrench in the prison (slavery) industrial complex which is in collusion with the media industrial complex (Hollywood) to promote a gangster life style for an easy pass to jail.
Most importantly he promoted Islam... big no no since the powers that be see religion as one of their main obstacles in controlling the masses.

I wouldn't be surprised if his disease was brought in purposely then from too many knocks to the brain.

A great speech

RIP to the greatest of all time.

It's really too bad that it was only a matter of time. Parkinson's sucks. Regards to his family and close friends, and fan's all over the world.

And just to clear things up about Parkinson's, FACT'S! Copied and pasted from the Associated Press.

Q: What is Parkinson's?

A: Parkinson's is a neurologic disease that robs people of control over their movements. It typically starts with tremors, and is characterized by slow movement, a shuffling gait, stiff limbs, balance problems and slurred speech.

Q: Who gets it?

A: About 1 million Americans are living with Parkinson's, and an estimated 4 million to 5 million people worldwide, according to the National Parkinson Foundation. It usually appears after age 60, although sometimes it can develop before age 40.

Q: What causes it?

A: The exact cause isn't known but Parkinson's develops when cells that produce one of the brain's chemical messengers, called dopamine, begin to deteriorate and die. Dopamine transports signals to parts of the brain that control movement. Parkinson's symptoms appear after enough dopamine-producing cells die that there's too little of this neurotransmitter in the brain.

Q: Is there a cure?

A: There is no cure but there are a range of treatments, from medications that affect dopamine levels to a surgically implanted tremor-blocking device. Patients also can benefit from physical and occupational therapy.

Q: What's the prognosis?

A: Symptoms worsen over time, usually slowly. The severity of symptoms, and how quickly they progress, varies widely between patients. In advanced cases, people may be unable to walk or care for themselves. They also can suffer non-motor symptoms, including depression and memory and other cognitive dysfunction.

While Parkinson's itself isn't considered fatal, people can die from complications of the disease.

Q: What complications are of most concern?

A: Lung problems are a risk as muscle weakness impedes the ability to cough and to swallow. While any kind of pneumonia can occur, what's called aspiration pneumonia — when bits of food or liquid land in the lungs instead of being swallowed properly — is the leading cause of death among Parkinson's patients, said National Parkinson Foundation medical director Dr. Michael S. Okun

not only the best boxer of all time, definitely one of the greatest athletes of all time, period.

I encourage those that don't know his story to look back, he was truly an inspirational person on all levels.
