Redeye's greatest hits continued

This is the third installment in my series of memory lane blog strolls leading up to the first anniversary of my front page privileges at Left in Alabama being yanked for allegedly making up stuff.

According to the Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads and the Polling Pollsters who Poll them, the majority of the American People are mad as hell at the Obama administration and they aren't going to take it anymore! I wonder how come they didn't get mad until the President was a democrat named Barack Obama? Why are they really mad? Where was their outrage pre Obama? I mean, really?

I'm talking to you Birthers, Deathers, Teabaggers, conservatives, republicans, moderates, independents, blue doghograts and DINO's. What are you really mad about? h/t pams listserve via MagginKat via ZJ via a British friend in email

Keep your eyes on the prize and hold on President Obama
October 20th will be ten months into President Obama's administration. If we will only give this man time and support, I believe he will full fill the promises he made. I believe his eyes are on the prize, but there is just so much to do. It can't all happen as quickly as I want, but the faith I have in my vote on November 6th gives me hope that we are on the right track with the right leader. I'll say it again, give this President time and support.

Stoopid is as stoopid does
I'm asking the parents of HCS school students who didn't want their students "brainwashed" by the President's political agenda if they are happy they taught their students about bigotry, racism, pettiness live and in living color? Children are our future, how can they move forward and make this world a better place if they are taught to hate someone because of the color of their skin? How are we going to move forward together, one nation, under God, with Liberty and Justice for ALL, if the children of the future are full of the prejudice and racism of the past?

Some suggested questions for gubernatorial candidates then and now
In light of the fact the gubernatorial candidates (except Ron Sparks) have agreed not to "play the race card" that may not be a good thing because in my mind "agreeing not to play the race care" is nod nod wink wink for "we are going to ignore black folks issues and concerns, and marginalize those who try to address them". So just in case I'm right (pun intended) here are some questions for ALL the candidates (republican and democrat) from a Redeye point of view.

Socialist is the New N word
PTCruiser at reminded me of the historical use of the word;

the terms "socialist" and "communist" were among the favorite epithets hurled at Black Americans, their allies and organizations such as the NAACP before, during and after the Civil Rights Movement. In fact, these terms have been used since the early 20th Century, if not before, to discredit and stigmatize men and women fighting for social justice.

Proud Socialist signing off!
