Tuesday Night Open Mic for October 5, 2010

Open mic night comes on the heels of some pretty good discussions. We have covered some interesting ground around the free market over the past couple of days. And we have also begun some discussions about what the important areas are for an ideal candidate going forward. After the discussion on federal regulation and control, we have an interesting article tonight that shows the government’s complete inability to use reason on something as simple as a paper clip. We also have some further claims of racism coming from the pages of ESPN, of all places (although athletes claiming racism has become a much more common thing these days). Another of tonight’s topic revolves around a environmental group in the UK that felt the right message to send was to comply with their world view or they will blow you up. Finally, we wrap up my topics with yet another story of how the tax money that Obama is redistributing to those “in need” is mysteriously ending up in Vegas casinos, Hawaii resorts, and pleasure cruise ships. I can’t wait to see what topics you all add as well!

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.
