This will be my last political post ever.
Unless I hear another example of pure idiocy like I heard tonight, whichever comes first.
My brother Matt, walking into Home Depot last night, was able to hear the following witty exchange between two future MENSA members.
Idiot #1: "Did you hear they're going to take down the Statue of Liberty?"
Idiot #2: "Really?"
Idiot #1: "Yeah. Once Obama gets in they are going to replace her with a statue of Aunt Jemima."
Can I just say that as a Southerner, this sickens me. As a North Carolinian, this pisses me off. And as a human being? It just makes me sad.
I wonder if THEIR ancestors had suffered decades of abuse, hatred, and suffering would they be so ignorant? Considering their family tree doesn't fork, I imagine it wouldn't make that much of a difference. But unless your Grandparents had to ride in the back of a bus, drink out of a different water fountain, and got hosed down by fire hydrants while Pit Bulls tried to take their larynx out, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they would most likely be just as stupid as they are today.
In our Pledge of Allegiance it says "One Nation, Under God". Not "One white nation and one black Nation." The Bible tells us to support and pray for our leaders; I'm not a scholar, but I've read it enough to know it doesn't say "Support the guy who has the same skin color you do."
Just so you know?
