We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"From Birmingham to Cleveland and Baltimore, at churches and colleges, Cosby has been telling thousands of black Americans that racism in America is omnipresent but that it canít be an excuse to stop striving. "
Tell them like it is brother Cos! Jeez man, just where is racism? It's everywhere, apparently. "so just don't get thrown in jail" ... I thought he was saying something new, but now I know he's just telling them what they want to hear: It's not your fault, but just don't fall for the tricks of whitey.
What's next Cos? Aids is man made to kill blacks? Crack is a chemical WMD for the black community? G_d Damn AmeriKKKa!
Telling people who can't get out of their own way that its not their fault, that's progress, and healthy too. uh, huh.
When John Kerry was pandering for president, he actually spoke to an audience of inmates in a prison on the theme -- and he said this explicity -- that their being in prison "is not your fault". I wonder if the senator has ever thought through the implications of such a remark. IOW, if a criminal act is not the perp's fault, then it must be society's, so, when the inmates get out of stir, what higher calling than to continue attacking that evil old society? Wot dumbass crap the libtards never stop mainlining right into the nervous systems of our most vulnerable citizens.
