In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Speculation and Denial

There's a lot of hoopla over the fifty year anniversary of the "I have a Dream" speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The media is all over it like chickens on a June bug, which is good in one way, but not in another.

I think the biggest issue is that the media is mostly skating around the biggest issue, which is expecting the race baiters of this century to go on to something more productive and stop being irrelevant. Of course, if they really wanted to be productive, they'd need to roll up their sleeves and untangle the mess of entitlements, the loss of family values and the fact Dr. King's real message is now mostly ignored.

They dishonor the man with their dishonesty and it doesn't say much about them either. While they may think they're emulating Dr. King, they're not and thinking they're somehow continuing his effort is arrogant. I doubt Dr. King would be proud of what is happening today or many of the supposed champions of civil rights.

  1. I think that Dr. King would probably weep to see what all of his efforts have come to.

  2. I honestly don't think the media is skating around that issue as you have defined it - I'm for thinking they're still in "totally undeserved because we had nothing to do with it white guilt mode." Until they get past that, nothing will change, because they are completely and irrevocably invested in that line of thought.

    1. The media is 90% pinheads. Even the best are completely out of touch with our country. Even our local media personalities don't have a clue. I think they teach them to be that way. It's easier to control them, if you give them little information, tell them they're really great and allow them to become legends in their own minds.
