And From the Peanut Gallery

Jimmy Carter said,

"I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way and I've seen the rest of the country that shared the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time ... and I think it's bubbled up to the surface, because of a belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country."

Well Jimmy, I too was born and raised in the great state of Georgia and while there are certainly examples of racism, the vast majority of Georgians are not racist. I have not visited your home town of Plains, so you may live in a bubble of exception.

I also believe that you are probably not the best arbiter of who is racist, what many white people believe, or for that matter who is qualified to be President - as your record and approval rating indicated.

Comments such as yours trade in hate and serve to divide our country. Since you are so quick to play the race card I would submit that you are the racist creating division where none exists.

Jimmy, the next time you have a thought - don't.

Let's Check the Dip-Stick

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said today,

"...from a technical perspective the recession is very likely over at this point"

So let's stick the dip-stick in the economic tank and see what kind of
reading we get.

I bet we're not quite out of the woods yet Mr. Bernanke
since the major economic driver, housing, is still running on empty.

Axelrod, You're Wrong

Commenting on Saturday's demonstration in Washington D.C., White House advisor David Axelrod said,
"You know, one of the great things about our country is people can express themselves even if they're not representative of the majority."
Take a real close look in the mirror Mr. Axelrod, because you're in the minority. You are witnessing the awakening of the silent majority. Just because we have been silent, does not make us irrelevant.

The American People are speaking - I suggest you listen.

8 Then Vacate

Can you name one of your three elected congressional representatives? Yes, you have three - unless you live in the District of Columbia then you're surrounded by them.

Want to know who they are?


House of Representatives:

Once you know who they are, go check out some of their voting records. You may find some things you like, but I'll bet you find some things that make you mad.

Then, once you're educated on your elected representation, see how long they've been in office. If they have been there more than 8 years, I suggest you kick them out. Serving in Congress was never meant to be a job or a lifestyle. After someone has been lavished with the kind of benefits our "American Royalty" receive, they've pretty much lost touch with the real society. If they have been there more than 4 years, get someone warming up in the bull pen.

8 Then Vacate.
