And for your daily moment of despair, try and imagine any current Republican in any way celebrating or even noting Earth Day. Go ahead, I'll wait....
That said, Pappy would stand zero chance of winning any national position in today's Republican party. Not isane enough, by far.
LBJ did so much for so many, and yet his name was dragged through the mud and blood of Vietnam. Sad - for all involved, involuntarily or otherwise.
Truly, a God among men. Worthy of worship and complete devotion.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses, yearning to be free".
But you were wrong. You probably went to a PUBLIC SCHOOL, yes? Well, see, there's your problem. LIBERAL BRAINWASHING.
As any Real American knows (for Real American, read: White Conservative Male), America's a Christian Nation, we speak English, and all them swarthy bastards can go back to what ever hole they crawled out of.
FREEDOM! And Jesus, also too.
I'm impressed, honestly, for the effort. And I don't think they're that bad - they're not masterpieces, but I'd hang 'em on my wall if my kid painted them - well, not these, actually. Kinda creepy. Like W has to wash off all the blood on his hands, but it never washes out! But in a far happier theme:
Good for you, W.
Happiness must be a factor in considering whether a life is successful. For, what is freedom, what is peace, without happiness?
Is that hypocritical of me? I accuse Republican followers of the same mindless following of their political leaders. But, their leaders are actual evil and are actively doing harm to our country. So, there's a difference! You see?
The Republican mind at work today, so beware. Even fair seeming or even nice Republicans must support this evil, if they are Republicans.
But let us not end in negativity! Choom Gang, bring it home.
Isn't it funny?! Little babies left out on a log in alligator country, ready to be eaten like popcorn. Someone's darling children - and all children are darling.
Implied in the word "bait", of course, there is a fine Southern Gentleman somewhere offscreen with a gun pointed at the alligator. That was the whole point afterall, right?
It's a sick state of mind, and too prevalent still. Especially in "The South".
I wonder what the real effect of entertainers, sports figures, and other celebrities is on race issues. I assume it's significant over time in terms of cultural awareness. Whether that translates tangibly to non-celebrities, I don't know.
Anyone got a study?
Also too, and said before: If you've not watched Sanford and Son in some time, or ever, please do. It's amazing.
It was only by force of the Federal Government (thanks Ike and LBJ!) that American apartheid ended. But oh, does it live on, unofficially, and make no mistake: The Republican Party of today is the political party actively pursuing the same goals - keep those people in their place.
A bonus today, of course, is lots of people can be those people. All the poor, for example. Yay, Republicans!
