Do ya know what that is?
It’s the sound of the crickets chirping after I asked any…any body to defend Obamacare…How about one of your friends? C’mon someone out there in wordpress land must know some one who knows someone who at least supports the idea of this idea?
I mean, okay, so I got more likes for my last post than any other, but after visiting some of these sites I am often stunned and wonder what was it about what I wrote that these individuals “liked”. Reading what they and their “followers” are saying I just can’t understand why they aren’t searching for the “hate” button…or
I have possibly a new theory, perhaps if you are following some fifty plus blogs it becomes quite a chore to actually read every post ( I know, I am following (seriously) about ten or so and am always a page (or more lol)behind in my emails, and it does become tempting somedays to just click “like” without actually reading…but ya know what? I like reading these blogs, (and commenting, hopefully not to the host’s annoyance[aww jesus here's that dysu again lol])and only one of them is written by another cantankerous old curmudgeon bitchin’ ’bout how we’ve lost our way as a country. And though we are obviously very different we share this one thing in common…
Here is an example of fun facts that John has dug up…
City officials in San Francisco are seeking to make ex-convicts a “protected class,” joining blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, the disabled and transgendered, and pregnant women. Ex-cons already have the special status when applying for city government jobs, but a council of top city officials wants to extend the protection to make it illegal for landlords and private employers to ask about a person’s criminal record.
I mean…umm…lololol…jumped up Jesus on a pogo stick…I mean…really? Really?
The state of Nevada last year denied a request for a vanity license plate that said “GOPALIN” because, in the view of the Department of Motor Vehicles, such a plate was “vulgar or obscene or expressing superiority of political affiliation.” That policy didn’t stop the agency from issuing personalized plates that said “AL GORE,” “GO OBAMA,” “GOGREEN,” “DMOCRAT,” and “KERRY.”
Another fine example of free speech and tolerance in action
The Omaha, Neb., public school district spent $130,000 in federal stimulus money to buy manuals to instruct teachers and school administrators on how to be culturally sensitive. The book, The Cultural Proficiency Journey: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change, says that teachers need to work for social justice in order to overcome a white-privileged society. The book says racism, sexism, homophobia and ableism are forces of oppression in schools, and that institutions in America “channel wealth and power to white people.”
This is the killer one…this has been the silent killer of America, the NEA, I know, I know sounds paranoid…okay they have been one of New America’s best propagandists…still you think that’s over the top? Consider that not only have public schools, since the late sixties (remember blue eyed/brown eyed experiment) have been teaching (white) America(boys) how evil it(they) has been(are), it has also managed to figure out how to instill a sense of self esteem and entitlement to a generation of kids who are completely incapable of the type of accomplishment such self esteem would normally spring from…
Wait what you don’t understand the last half of that sentence, okay go back and read it again I will wait…

October 28, 2011
Okay so what really started the whole idea for this blog was a small event that took place when I recentley took a pilgrimage home to see my family. During a lovely So Cal patio brunch thrown by my older sister and brother in law, my oldest brother El Revolutio, started to throw out the big R word…
”Racist” El started ranting “My little brother’s a racist”
“Racist” He squawked in his drug addled “larry flynnt” voice again” Racist! Racist!”
Alright so I jumped right into it with-out much intro and already most of you are probably thinking, and will still be thinking after reading this blog that my brother was right and that I am indeed a racist. Well truthfully, and let me say this as gently as possible, I just don’t give a fuck. If after reading this you don’t see the logic of my argument you may not wanna come back and read this blog again, you may not be smart enough to understand the things I’m going to say. Or maybe not crazy enough.
I mean what the hell do I know– I’m a dysfunctional unit.
Anyway let me just git to it.
So the subject came up what I like about living in the frozen north as compared to the Land of Oz (So Cal). Among the pleasantries I extolled about my new home base was the old timey-ness…Okay so my exact words were that I enjoy living in an area that is more mono cultural. What I meant of course is that So Dak is still, in general, like the America I grew up with. What I meant was in my home town, in my neighborhood (in the “sf ghetto”) children’s bikes still lay out on the neighbors lawn all night long and no one steals them.
Okay so I’m getting off track cause I wanna make sure I address this key issue from a larger stand point then my need to recreate Norman Rockwell America…whoa there I go again see, my brother is right…or is he?
What I mean is that how we act, how we behave is not the result of the color of our skin. Or did I miss something? Claiming that our social or cultural behaviors are linked specifically, genetically to our race seems to be the most racist statement of all.
If this weren’t true then white people would have no trouble with young boys walking around in backward hats and baggy pants sayin “yo, yo, yo”. If it was solely skin color then why do so many blacks hate successful conservative black Americans.
“Whiggers” are still white, “Oreos” are still black, yet their respective races despise them. If it were about race, or the color of our skin, this would not be the case. Yet consistently when a person of any race begins behaving outside of their culturally accepted patterns their brothers and sisters in color reject them. Culture trumps race.
As another example, lets look at the difference between how many blacks view Herman Cain. Mr. Cain is definitely a black man racially speaking. A proud and successful member of his race who should be exemplified by his community, instead he is villified. I love Herman Cain, like most of his supporters that I’ve talked to, not because or despite the color of his skin, but because he is a proud supporter of, and a shining example of the American Culture.
So am I saying there’s no such thing as racism…nothing could be further from what I have said here. What I am saying is that many times when we talk (debate, argue, fight) as a country we use the word race when we mean culture. We cannot work to solve a problem without first addressing it from a true and real perspective.
This is what drives me crazy about most of our social discussions here in America. We can never fix a problem that we can’t discuss from the perspective of truth.
Am I a racist? Again you’re going to believe whatever you want, but, if you want to label me truthfully label me a culturalist?
There are some after reading this that will still want to say that I don’t understand what I am talking about. And I admit that I am certainly not very sensitive to other’s cry baby problems.
Like slavery, did I mention somewhere above that American Blacks should be thankful for slavery…
Now why did I say that…now I’m going to have to explain that statement in my next blog.
Don’t get too upset. There is logic to my statement.
Or at least I think there is.
But then again what the hell do I know…
I’m a dysfunctional unit.
