A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Last night, Mrs. Paddy, Teh Older, and I went curling! Yes, curling! Our pastors’ son was teaching a “Learn to Curl” class and we’ve always thought it would be fun to try. It was! It was also much more difficult than it looks. I’m waiting to see how sore I’ll be tomorrow (for me, the pain always comes two days after the exertion.)

See y’all later!

Huh. You’ve been letting your hair grow out, Paddy?

The Sunday and cable news shows were all about teh March on Washington anniversary and how there is still much work to be done in America. I tuned out and dismissed the whole thing as soon I saw ‘Justice for Trayvon’ signs in the crowd and heard the usual sadly somber talking points about that case being a civil rights case pointing to racist white men killing unarmed black teens for no reason.

Trayvon Martin got what he had coming and the real racism and persecution is against George Zimmerman.

Curling would be more entertaining if the other team could engage in contact and interference with the stone’s sweepers as they move down the ice.

In the category of “it’s more fun to play than to watch” -- traditionally, the teams go out for drinks half-way through the match. Then at the end, the winning team buys the first round.

Dr. King’s legacy has been betrayed for fifty years by media-annointed “black leaders” as well as officials like the racist swine who comprise the Congressional Black Caucus…not to mention the folks at places like the NAACP plus “liberals” in-general.

More and more -- based on results -- I’m staring to wonder if much of the civil rights movement in this country was well-intentioned foolishness.

===============

I am hard-pressed to think of more than a small handful of officials of either major party who even pretend they want open debate on any issues.

Because, “fvck you, that’s why.”

Back in the Founders’ day, a non-trivial chunk of the citizenry would have been rather busy dragging elected and appointed officials from their homes and offices in order to introduce them to pine tar pitch, feathers and rails.

I think that’s a splendid tradition and would love to see it revived.

Off to help teh children move…feh.

I agree, Mac. As far as the libs wanting a conversation, my bet is no. Their idea of a conversation is them telling everyone else how things should be and using the govt club to force you to accept it.

“Civil rights’ seems to be code for ‘minority rights’ and as such, not being a minority nor taking advantage of any minority individual, I tend not to care.

I know next to nothing about MLK. However, from what I’ve seen of those today that claim his mantle, I dont think I’m missing out on much.

IMHO, King’s legacy has been betrayed and perverted. He wanted equality under the law for all. Hate crimes, set-asides, affirmative action and special protections for some are not what he stood for.

He was also a Republican and owned guns. 😉

The man was no saint but he had courage and vision that today’s “Black Leaders” can’t imagine.

Yup. I think race relations in this country might be much better now had he lived.

They are completely against King’s message and vision.

And should be mocked accordingly…but few have the fortitude to do so.

I’d gladly have a “discussion on race” in a public forum with any of them.

And speaking of mockery:
