Our president, showing that underneath all the masculine charm and eloquent verbiage there is really nothing internal to himself to hold himself upright.  No spine, no guts.  So let’s just capitulate to North Korea, why don’t we?  Looks like his cadre of sycophants aren’t up to the job of being an external spine for him.

Let me make myself abundantly clear:  If you allow the enemy to be on a level of equals with yourself you are as good as validating and supporting their behavior.

The argument will be that 6-way talks weren’t successful so we had to try this.  But this wasn’t successful in the past, so if you argue for change then how do you go back two steps?

Good gravy – our president is another Jimmy Carter.

Watched Glenn Beck today on his 9/12 special in DC.

My neighbor and I were discussing issues on current events.  I said “Do you want America to be a Socialist state?”.   “Naw,” he said, “If I’d have wanted that I’d have moved to Canada or Europe.”

Good point.  So all you socialist wannabe’s… don’t let the door hit you on the butt as you leave.

The Dude has passed on a link showing that black publishers are saying that Wilson must be racist for saying “You lie!” to Obama.

I’m going to step out on a limb here but could part of the unconscious reason why there’s no desire to “move on” in black American minds be because there might be a loss of a tool to beat your opponents with?  Seriously, all one has to do is scream “RACIST” and there’s a no-rebuttal stigma slapped on the other party.    I saw that speech.  There was nothing racist there.

NNPA Chairman Danny J. Bakewell Sr. said. “Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist, disrespectful, and a disingenuous violation — not only of President Obama — but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending black dollars where black people are not respected.

“The continued public and blatant disrespect of President Barack Obama by members of Congress will not be rewarded with our dollars nor will a state that continues to uphold America’s shameful past by flying the Confederate flag,” he added.

The key words here are “where black people are not respected”.  So all you have to do is “disrespect” a black person and it is racism now?   Could it really be that we’ve gone to the point where if a black person says he feels like someone was less than friendly with him then it must logically follow that the other person is racist?

Mr. Bakewell, you are obviously pretty full of yourself and the specialness of your blackness, and far more impressed by it than I am at that, but the simple truth is – Obama’s policies and actions play a far bigger part in any blatant disrespect to his person than the color of his skin.   Let’s take you and me for example, Mr. Bakewell:  I don’t think badly of you because of your skin color – I think less of you because of the words you utter and the fact that you are an idiot.

Getting really sick of this idea that if anything happens that some minority doesn’t like then it must be us whiteys who are racists.  I was brought up to hate racism so it’s particularly offensive when people claim it frivolously.
