Martin Luther King Jr. Day.............

Today is indeed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Established in 1983 and signed into law by President Regan.

It seems odd that, other than no postal service today, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot in the web news sites noting the fact that today is a National Holiday. I'm not sure what that's all about or if it means anything, but one would think with all the calls for unity and civility after the recent shooting in Tuscon folks may want to consider the ideas and ideals of the late preacher.

Makes sense to me, but I've always admired Rev. King.
Between running in and out and doing chores today, I've been re-reading Kings' - "Letter from a Birmingham Jail".

It's been quite awhile since I last read this and I'd forgotten just how powerful it is. I use the present tense there because much of that letter speaks directly what's going on in the USA today. Different time and situation but the truth of his words are still correct.

What's going on today is gonna harm Blacks & Whites equally. Somehow, I'm doubting that the shared enslavement of all races to an all encompassing, tyrannical government was part of what Rev. King had in mind regarding, "Equal Justice for all". Just a guess on my part.

Take a few and go read That Letter and see what you think.

I'm old enough to remember those bad old days of segregation and I'm glad that we've moved on from that shit.
That's one of the reasons I get so angry when the leftists and statist media routinely toss charges of, "Racism" towards anyone who disagrees with them on any damn thing.
I've known and served alongside too many damn fine Black People to have to listen to accusations like that from Socialist Shitheads who don't know shit about me or what I think.
And they have the damn gall to tell ME to be, "More Civil" in my discourse? Screw that and them.

Hell, I'm supporting Herman Cain for President in 2012 and would urge you to do the same.
Like Rev. King said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Amen to that.

Just maybe the rapid march to tyranny wouldn't be so going fast if voters had been given some insight into the character of the current President and been able to make an informed judgment prior to voting for that Socialist Bastard. Yeah, I'm talking to the same Sonzabitches in the media that call me racist a, "Bitter Clinger" and a "Domestic Extremist", etc. Fuck all a y'all.

That's enough for now. My blood pressure probably doesn't need any more of this.
