If Not Now…. When?

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I watched the countdown to the potential government shutdown last week with a jaded eye. I can touch on what I wanted to happen in a bit, but what I was watching for was to see how much further we would watch the talking heads go in demonizing their opponents and using emotional rhetoric to sway public opinion. I must say, I was not disappointed. As was true with every major policy debate in the political spectrum over the last few years, each side spouted more nonsense than could be fathomed. It’s just proof to all of you: When you set the proper expectations for those in the political landscape, they are very capable of meeting or exceeding your expectations. And BF has the audacity to say that politicians can’t meet our expectations…

Jesse Jackson… Shut the Hell Up

I find myself beginning to write this article shaking my head in wonderment. Did I really find a way to bring a discussion about Lebron James into the realm of political discourse? How could I let this happen, I thought to myself. But, alas, it is true. I am going to write about the Lebron James situation. But this isn’t about basketball. This is about the pervasive racism that exists in the United States of America. This is about one of the top race baiters of our generation once again opening his mouth and trying to turn every action taken by anyone as an opportunity to claim that the intentions were rooted in racism (uh oh, I used the word rooted, which is similar to “Roots”, which is a slavery story, which means Jesse thinks I am a racist). And before you laugh too hard at that…. Jackson really would claim that my choice of the word rooted was a subliminal reference to “Roots” and show that deep inside I am a racist white man who wants to take advantage of black men worldwide. He and race baiters like him use tactics such as that regularly. And what is worse is that there are some people with ridiculously low IQs who actually believe them.
