Going Down in Flames…stopped his insanity.

First, before I start my own rant, I want to make it VERY VERY clear, that I do not condone what Mr. Joseph Stack did in Austin today. Having said that….here we go.

Before reading anything else via foxnews.com, I read what is now being dubbed as his “Manifesto“. I couldn’t help but think to myself, that if I was not reading a suicide letter, I would have agreed with almost everything he said. 

Am I insane? No, I don’t think so. Though in many circles, considering I just answered myself..I may be. What’s scary about the situation is this man was right in how he felt. Constantly getting burned by the system while the corrupt or lazy get a free ride. Was he on the edge? Obviously, but crazy…not so sure. It would be easy to label him as such, to get the broom and sweep this guy under the rug.  But just for a second, maybe we can concentrate on the message and not the messenger. Again, this was a tragedy in many senses of the word.

We live in a Country that has become complicated, lost, underestimated, tired and lively. Many people speak out on many different issues. Some are worthy of listening, some are a joke. What kind of Country do we live in when a man like this thinks or believes, this is the only way anyone will listen.  Would anyone have listened to his rant? Would anyone have cared? Will anyone read this and actually listen instead of judging. Who knows though I can assure you, I have no plans of offing myself or anyone else. One thing I have to believe in is things will get better and I can only pray that we don’t turn into a country where violence begins to represent our beliefs.

Back to the “Manifesto”. He writes of his story, his ups and downs, how many times he lost his retirement, how many times he got screwed by “The Man”.

Look around friend’s and foe’s. We are in a downward spiral and I don’t think a couple of pieces of candy will be at the bottom leading me to grow bigger or smaller. This is no adventure, though a white rabbit is leading the way. It’s become the 500lb gorilla but everyone keeps petting it like it’s a cute little hoppy, plushy pet. I have to ask myself why everything has become so complicated? I pay my bills, I have searched and searched for work, I pay daycare even when my son isn’t present. I see the doctor’s that write off an illness that’s serious into something mundane. I see criminals getting away with it again and again and I see politicians who give two shits about you or me. Something has changed and I don’t think it’s us, it’s the system. Somewhere in our young, old age…we lost. What’s depressing is, some of us don’t care anymore. We dance around the ring but no one wants to go in for the knock out. We want to complain and vent, but no one wants to say it when it counts. We’ve become Meek. I want to inherit the Earth…but not without knowing I fought for what was right.

If those in office who have the power only by those who have voted them in actually listened to what we are screaming everyday, maybe we would have a chance. But they won’t. Their agenda is blind and I never thought I’d say it but I’m almost sick of all of them, even my own party. I wish we could start over. Take out all the bullshit and sit quietly around a table rereading our Bill of Rights and the Constitution. It was all we needed to guide us in the right direction. That direction has been skewed, stretched, flipped and torn apart.

I could go on, about everything that has gone wrong but one thing is right; We, the people of the United States, have the power to make change. Not “Change we can believe in”..cause if I hear that bull one more time, I might just hurl all over my keyboard. How about change that is real, tangible. I want to touch it, smell it…taste it.

Joseph Stack will go down in history as a terrorist, as did Timothy McVey. Nobody listened to either of them and what followed was disaster, pain, and was not necessary if good ole’ Washington D.C. had taken two seconds to shut up and listen.

Bush Anonymous and the Battered Woman Syndrome

The other day, I came across Peggy Noonan’s editorial via opinionjournal.com.

It was titled:

Too Bad
President Bush has torn the conservative coalition asunder.

I took a deep breath and the little voice inside my head said…”Oh no, not Peggy!”.

And then I read.

As always, Peggy Noonan has a way with words beyond reproach.

Elegantly, like a Mother to her children, Peggy grounded me. She sent me to my room and told me when I wake up, I can come out.

I was hurt, pouty and stubborn as all hell. I snuck out of the room and decided I’d wake up later.

Two days later, still sneaking around, I caught a peak of Chris Wallace and Newt Gingrich on Sunday Fox News.

The first thing Chris Wallace said is , “Well, joining us now, someone who’s always interesting and often controversial. But these days, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is directing his fire not at Democrats but at problems within his own Republican Party.”

I took a deep breath and the little voice inside my head said, “Oh no, not Newt!”

And then I watched as Newt tore the Republican Party a new…..ahhhh…. well let’s just say a lot of ‘Pubs’ had some cushin’ on the tooshin’ after that interview.

Not to mention….Newt gave Peggy a shout out.

I felt lost, confused. Momma and Dadda Republican were going against the grain.

I went back to Peggy’s column.

This is where the little voice started to change it’s tune :

The White House doesn’t need its traditional supporters anymore, because its problems are way beyond being solved by the base. And the people in the administration don’t even much like the base. Desperate straits have left them liberated, and they are acting out their disdain. Leading Democrats often think their base is slightly mad but at least their heart is in the right place. This White House thinks its base is stupid and that its heart is in the wrong place.

For almost three years, arguably longer, conservative Bush supporters have felt like sufferers of battered wife syndrome. You don’t like endless gushing spending, the kind that assumes a high and unstoppable affluence will always exist, and the tax receipts will always flow in? Too bad! You don’t like expanding governmental authority and power? Too bad. You think the war was wrong or is wrong? Too bad.

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh She’s RIGHT!

Listen, I love Bush. I love the cowboy attitude, the let’s kick ass attitude and yet…He’s messed up. I’ve acknowledged these mess-ups outloud but still defended him. And on a few things I still do, the Iraq War being number 1. As a Republican, I can also acknowledge that we were not prepared for Iraq and something’s gotta give. But Terrorism is a real thing and I’d rather it be over there then on U.S. Soil.

But then we have the Immigration issue which seems to be head to head with the Iraq War and what Americans are concerned with most.

A majority of Americans (48% via Rasmussen) do not apporve of the Immigration Bill. 26% aren’t sure, 26% favor it. WOW, that’s a big difference. But instead of the Governement listening to our cries….

via Peggy:

The president has taken to suggesting that opponents of his immigration bill are unpatriotic–they “don’t want to do what’s right for America.” His ally Sen. Lindsey Graham has said, “We’re gonna tell the bigots to shut up.” On Fox last weekend he vowed to “push back.” Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff suggested opponents would prefer illegal immigrants be killed; Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said those who oppose the bill want “mass deportation.” Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson said those who oppose the bill are “anti-immigrant” and suggested they suffer from “rage” and “national chauvinism.”

Excuse me? Unpatriotic? I have stood by this President thru thick and thin, but when over 60% do not like or are unsure of this Bill, we get a big fat slap in the face? I thought we voted you in Mr. President and you were voted in based on OUR views and what WE want and support, Not yours.

Newt Gingrich believes our Governement is Dysfunctional or not functioning at all. He is right, but it’s not just him, this whole Country is Dysfunctional. First we’re Martyr’s, then we’re Scrooge. I’m offended by this, you’re offended by that…let’s sue each other. Let’s change laws based on Minority views not Majority. 

How did we stray? Are we so offended by this governement that we’ve decided to go rogue on each other? I mean… really!

We have an election coming up. Some of the Lefties are Extreme to the point of ridiculous, as are some of the Republicans.

I need someone in the middle….we all do.

Some things just HAVE to be compromised. We need to acknowledge Terrorism and realize a little chat over tea won’t solve that problem. At the same time, we need to look at our diversity and celebrate it instead of pointing out all our faults. We all have them, get over it. We’ve become a bunch of pussy cats. “Oh, you called me fat, I’m taking you to court!”, “I’m not the best worker in the world but I should of got that promotion because I’m me and a woman, To Court!”, “Did I just hear the word ‘God’ come from that guys mouth, walking down the sidewalk minding his own business? I’m suing the city for allowing preaching on our sidewalks!”.

Get the BLANK over it.

The only way to get anything done is compromise…..dare I say, share? We were taught these values since the day we came into this world. We teach our children to take turns, listen to each other.  Do as I say, not as I do?

My fellow Republicans, it’s time we did a little bit of waking up. I am and will always be a Conservative, but it doesn’t mean I have to support every Republican in office. I back Bush on Terrorism, I’m not sure I back him on much else these days. I find myself turning the volume down when he speaks.

 I’ve said it many times but I will say it again..America is the Greatest Country in the World! But we make it that, no one else. You can’t preach Peace at your rally’s when you won’t shake the hand of your fellow neighbor nor can you be blind to the differences between Bible Times and 21st Century Times.

We all have some waking up to do. We’ve taken a beating for too long and it’s time for a 12 step Program.

The first step?

Hi, My name is CWonder, and I’m a Bushaholic.

Al-Qaida, U.S., Flagpole, After School.

An American Al-Qaida member is the star of a new video tape threatening the United States with attacks far worse then 9/11.

Article:

Wearing a white robe and a turban, Adam Yehiye Gadahn, who also goes by the name Azzam al-Amriki, said al-Qaida would not negotiate on its demands.

“Your failure to heed our demands … means that you and your people will … experience things which will make you forget all about the horrors of September 11th, Afghanistan and Iraq and Virginia Tech,” he said in the seven-minute video.

Ben Venzke from IntelCenter says:

‘the group likely did not believe any of its demands would be met.’

Obviously this is the point. Al-Qaida knows we don’t and won’t negotiate with terrorists. Therefore, this is just an excuse to justify attacks on the U.S. A way to say, ‘hey, we told you, now you will pay.’

So should we be worried? I’ll tell you what, this is all eerily familiar.

The fact that I live in Germany right now and we are under a “Heightened Alert” and the tapes. Well…if anything, keep your eyes open.

As you may or may not recall, around July 23rd of 2001 warnings came out about an attack overseas. I remember the night I read the article (which, by the way, I have searched the Internet far and wide for such an article..nothing seems to go back far enough). I was working at our Command Post, a graveyard shift and was reading the news on MSNBC.com. I read the article, found it so interesting I forwarded it to my Parents, Sister and friends. And we know what happened after that.

Remember, it only takes one guy to cause harm. One. One Psycho, One Terrorist.

It doesn’t matter how smart or stupid these cells are, it doesn’t take brains to pull a trigger or push a detonator. 

Whenever someone threatens you, you should take it seriously. No matter what. If your family or children were threatened, you would take it seriously. So take this seriously. It’s the same exact thing on a much bigger scale. Don’t be afraid, just be vigilant, observant.

Also recognize that these terrorists know exactly how to get to us..mentally. Before Iraq, they were telling us we needed to convert, drop our support for Israel. Using Iraq as leverage and knowing how torn our Country is, they tell us we must leave the Middle East or face devastation.

All our lefties out there will use this as an excuse for why we shouldn’t be involved in Iraq. And that’s called waiving a white flag.

The fact of the matter is, no matter what we do, they will hate us. If we pulled out of Iraq, then we would have to stop supporting Israel or face attacks. If we stopped supporting Israel then we would all have to convert to Islam. If we did that we’d have to give up or Western ways.

 Their demands are ENDLESS.

 If it looks suspicious, feels suspicious, it probably is suspicious. Let’s take care of each other out there. This is our Country, Defend it anyway you can, even if it’s just with your eyes and voice.

Johnny Be Rude

Yesterday was Memorial Day and I decided to stick with my Memorial Day post and not talk of politics. But today is a new day.

John Edwards….hum drum, small town boy, “I’ll save the poor”, “I love America”, “I support the Troops” Johnny….this guy, has really taken the cake this last week.

So what Cake did he take?

His stance on Memorial Day and the activities we should take part in.

Now..this is from his site :

As citizens, we honor and support our troops for their service and sacrifice.

As Americans, we are blessed by that sacrifice and support, which keeps us safe and keeps us strong.

As patriots, we call on our government to support our troops in the most important way it can – by ending this war and bringing them home.

This Memorial Day weekend, we will all take responsibility for the country we love and the men and women who protect it. We will volunteer, we will pray, and we will speak out. In the days leading up to Memorial Day, we will take action to support our troops, end the war, and bring them home to the heroes’ welcome they deserve. And on Memorial Day, we will honor and remember all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Each of us has a responsibility to act, a duty to our troops and to each other. Support the troops. End the war.

Then he goes on to tell you things you can do on Memorial Day.

For example:

Get local, get active, and get outdoors. Walk the streets of your neighborhood. Get everyone you know to sign a petition to your local government body—for instance, your town or city council or neighborhood association—to pass a resolution requesting that Congress use its funding authority to support our troops and end the war. Bring the petition to the next meeting. Share your plans here.

Gather in public. On Memorial Day weekend, get your friends, kids, co-workers, neighbors, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, and anyone and everyone you know together to publicly support the troops and end the war. If you hold an event on Memorial Day itself, please make sure that everyone you gather knows it is a day for honoring the fallen only. Be sure to check with your local authority for any permits you need for public gatherings. Contact local media to publicize your event. Before you get started, please take a moment of silence to honor the fallen. And during your event, make sure you conduct yourself respectfully—both for those serving in Iraq and the memory of the brave servicemen and women that Memorial Day honors. Share your plans here.

Get vocal. Buy a bunch of poster-board and markers. At a picnic or with family and friends, make signs that say “SUPPORT THE TROOPS – END THE WAR.” Bring them to your local Memorial Day parade. Many parades are held on Saturday or Sunday. If your parade is on Monday, however, we ask that you choose another action to honor the fallen. Then take a digital photo of yourself and your family or friends holding up the poster and tell us about it. We’ll include it in a “Democracy Photo Album” on our site.

He also has other options inbetween these.

A few examples:

Send our troops a taste of home. Go shopping with your kids, your friends, your neighbors, and buy a whole bunch of stuff that would make a soldier happy to receive (check for restrictions). Then go through a site like Anysoldier.com, OpGratitude.com, or TroopCarePackage.com to send your package to a soldier in Iraq. Take photos and tell us about it.

Pray. Organize a prayer vigil for our troops at your house of worship. Honor the fallen. Tell us about it.

Greet a vet. Before Memorial Day Weekend gets started, get in touch with the Yellow Ribbon Fundand volunteer to provide welcome-back services and mentorships to injured soldiers returning home. Tell us about it.

Nice safety feature don’t you think?

My problem with all of this? It’s a mixed message.

Go out and shake the hand of a Vet and then go take your “end the war” sign to a Memorial Day Parade.

Have we forgotten that War(s) and the Sacrifice of the Men and Women involved in those Wars has lead to the Free and Democratic nation we live in today?

I know that people think talking works, that reasoning can work…understanding; Have we not learned?

The problem is, talking and reasoning only work with people who are willing to talk and reason. If talking and reasoning worked, we would never have war…Never. But we do, why? Because we all have different opinions. We all think we know what’s best.

I’m going to digress for a moment and tell you a story.

In the summer of 2001, July to be exact, my best friend Michelle and I took leave and drove from Dover AFB, to my hometown of Colorado Springs, CO.

One particular evening we decided to head downtown to a bar/restaurant and have a beer and some pizza. Once there, a couple of young college boys invited us to their table. Small talk ensued until they asked us if we were “College” Girls or not. We stated that we weren’t and told them the true nature of our professions…that we were in the Air Force. If we would of known a debate was about to follow we might not have said anything but we did and so came the debate. They questioned our morals, they questioned the Military in general. They asked us why we even needed a Military. To this Michelle and I came screaming to the defense of our Military and told them that there would always be enemies and that’s why we needed the Military. And this is the point in the story to take note of…To that answer they replied and I quote, “We have no enemies, Who are our enemies? The U.S. will never get attacked, mark my words.”

Flabbergasted, we started naming enemies.. “China, North Korea, The Middle East…”

We were so worked up, we threw down money and walked out. We were insulted and couldn’t believe people were so naive. Almost 3 months to the day, we were attacked on 9/11.

After 9/11 there was unabated support for War. Let me say that again, unabated SUPPORT for us going to war. We didn’t wait for anyone to tell us different, we just went to kick some ass. To DEFEND our Nation.

Now Iraq, I realize is a different situation….to a point. They were talking of Regime change  well before Bush took office. After 9/11, truthfully, it just gave us more of an excuse to go in. Nevertheless, Bush still went to the U.N. which, as usual, shuffled their feet and shuffled their feet. The infamous 1441 resolution never held water because the U.N. never stood behind it. They wrote it, then discarded it and ignored it. Meanwhile Saddam was sitting there laughing his Dictatoring fat ass off.

Despite what we knew or didn’t know, Congress passed the “Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002“.

The Senate Voted on October 11, 2002, by a vote of 77-23. John Edwards was one of those “Yes” votes.

The point is, a majority of the House, Senate and American People agreed to the war in Iraq at the time, based on the intelligence we had.

But some of those reasons were found to be untrue. And it is those reasons that have torn this Country apart.

Now we hear the phrase, “I support the troops, I don’t support the war”. How exactly do you accomplish that? Do you send little “Thank You” notes for defending this country and respectfully ask them not to do their job? Do you shake their hand as they walk through the airport and tell them you don’t believe in what they do or stand for but you support them nonetheless?

What a Crock of Bull.

And then you have Edwards, a Presidential Candidate, who sucks the milk from this great land, spits it out and has the audacity to call himself Humble.

He tells American’s, on a day when we remember why we are here and the people who sacrificed for us to get here, ‘ehhh….go on Children, write your signs to end this war and go make your voice heard at a Military Dedicated Parade.’ And Vote for Me..Vote for Me!!!

You never had my vote Edwards, in fact..you’re on the same list John Kerry is on, the “kitty” list.

The same people who preach about destitute parts of the world have no problem signing a death warrant for the Iraqi People. Hypocrites all of you!

“Support Your Troops” doesn’t mean typing it out or saying it. That has no validity.

If you say you support the troops and don’t support this war, I’d like to know what steps you take to support them? And I don’t mean asking everyone and their brother to bring them home. That’s not support…just ask the troops. We know that troops would much rather be home then fighting a war, but what you are asking them to do is against everything they joined and trained for. They want to succeed! Why do so many want them to fail???

Why do we want to “Save Dafur” but not “Iraq”? The list of hypocrisies is so long..it’s tiring and gives me a headache.

It doesn’t matter that Edwards said it, he isn’t going to be President and we all know that.

It’s the fact that the message is being said at all. Whatever happened to American Pride? Lots worry of what the world thinks of us? WHY DO YOU CARE? Do you think if they liked us they might help us? lol Too funny. The fact of the matter is, we have never been liked and yet it’s America, the most hated Nation in the World who comes to the rescue of our enemies.

We are a Great Nation, We are a Generous Nation but if you Mess with us, You pay the Price. That is what I love about America, that is why I support the troops and the mission they are doing. That is why no kitty boy will ever get elected.

No one makes this Country great but ourselves. We need to remember that. It’s the foundation our Founding Father’s laid down for us.

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead

Why CWonder, that’s not very nice!!!

Yes I know..but I don’t care 🙂

rosie.jpg

So after Thursday’s Kitty fight between Elizabeth and Rosie, Rosie calls it quits.

Hmmm, how interesting? Don’t you think?

Rosie the dragon spewing, psycho babbling, conspiracy theory’ing, leftist freakazoid couldn’t hang when the going got tough.

You want me to tell you how I really feel? (grin)

I used to like Rosie, in fact, I loved her. I watched all her movies, her show. I thought she was hysterical but this extreme lefty disease got a hold of her, choked her and she submitted to the extreme.

Watching the debates between Rosie and Elizabeth was like watching regular America. That was the only plus side. There are just as many people out there who clap for Rosie as they do for Elizabeth. People actually believe what comes out of her pie hole.

The debates turned argument, turned emotional, turned personal. And let’s be real here, Rosie did most of the attacking.

When it wasn’t an answer she liked, she took that sharp little knife out and poked it a little deeper.

Elizabeth jabbed back…finally got a good one in and…POOF!!! Rosie’s gone.

Considering her attitude on the show and the “My way is the only way” line of thinking; not to mention the total disregard for the Country she lives in; she copped out.

 It seems every time Rosie comes out in public she causes controversy. We forget about her and back again she comes.

Her comments literally make me sick. Shame on you Rosie. 

Someone get a pail of water so we can be done with this nonsense.

Muslims in America

The Pew Research Center  did a poll on Muslims living in America, the results are all over the news this morning.

Via Washingtonpost.com

The survey by the Pew Research Center found that 78 percent of U.S. Muslims said the use of suicide bombings against civilian targets to defend Islam is never justified. But 5 percent said it is justified “rarely,” 7 percent said “sometimes,” and 1 percent said “often”; the remaining 9 percent said they did not know or declined to answer.

Quite different from Muslims living in Britain, France and Spain, which are twice as likely to defend suicide bombings.

I’m not sure if that’s supposed to make me feel better? It doesn’t really.

There’s a lot of positives in this survey but their are some negative’s that are concerning.

Still, the poll found “pockets of sympathy for extremism” particularly among African Americans and young Muslims, said Andrew Kohut, head of the Pew Research Center

Surprising…..

Native-born African American Muslims, who represent about 20 percent of the total Muslim population, are its most disillusioned segment, the report shows. They are more skeptical than foreign-born Muslims of the idea that hard work pays off. About 13 percent are satisfied with the way things are going, compared with 29 percent of other native-born Muslims and 45 percent of Muslim immigrants.

9% have a favorable attitude towards Osama Bin laden.

Another interesting fact, A majority of muslims are flocking to the Democrat Party, 6 to 1. This is because a large majority don’t support the war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sigh…I support the war, but sometimes I think, “What the hell are we doing there? If they don’t give a shit, why do we?”

Alright, sidetracking this discussion…

Dr.Sanity had a rant the other day on what is wrong with Islam, men in paticular.

First let me say, I completely agree with her!

A piece from her fantastic and informative post.

I have said it before and I will say it again here: the treatment of women under Islam is not only the key to understanding the pathology of the culture, but also the key to developing an antidote to its most poisonous and toxic elements.

Unveiling the women of Islam and eliminating their second-class status; empowering them in the oppressive Islamic countries where their individuality and self-expression has been crushed– may cause a ripple effect that could eventually alter a family structure that currently encourages the development of generation after generation of dysfunctional and pathological men and women.What seems most characteristic about the type of Islam practiced in the Middle East today (and being exported around the world) is that its attitude toward women most certainly has no relationship to reality. Reality is indeed a “mistake” in their eyes, and they fully intend to rectify it–no matter how many deaths and lives are sacrificed to their perverted religious ideology.

Psychiatrists generally refers to this state as “psychotic” and “delusional”.

It has been argued (and there is a great deal of merit in the argument, in my opinion) that Islamist terror can be thought of in part, at least, as a response to sexual rage, frustration, and the humiliation of being connected to a “degraded mother.” Thus the men in the culture must constantly assert their masculinity, defend their masculine “honor”, and strike out in rage against any who “shame” them.

I wrote of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s book, Infidel here; Dr. Sanity’s post reminds me of the book. So maybe it would be educational to read both.

Hate Crime? : Channon and Christian

christian_channon.jpg

Yesterday I updated you on Fox News covering this story via Bill Hemmer and “BYA” (Because you asked).

Michelle Malkin of hotair.com also mentioned this yesterday. (she has the video also)

I’m writing this because of the comments I have read.

The one clear outcry I hear is, “If this were 5 white people who had done this to a Black couple, it’d be all over the news”. And you would be right.

Why? Because the ilks of Sharpton and Jackson would be shoving it in our faces, showering the Press with how evil the white man can be.
So I ask you, Are we trying to do the same? I don’t think Black people are evil, do you?

I hope not! These 4 Black men and 1 black woman were evil. Just as every other murderer out there, Black, White, Asian, Indian….etc. Evil. Disgusting. If I had a say, I’d say they should die the way they killed their Victim. And then again, does that mean I’m stooping to their level?

So the question is, what are we to gain by this getting out in the National News Theater?

First, you have to discern whether this was a “Hate Crime” in the typical sense of the phrase. Did they purposely do this because they were white? And if it had been a Black couple, would they have had the same fate?

I’m not sure we can answer that and most likely, will never know unless it comes out in trial. But I will admit, that I have doubts it wasn’t.

My opinion? Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have been in the news a lot lately. Duke and Imus being the most recent of cases. Before the truth of Duke came out, I guarantee a lot of White people were pissed. Why? Because we thought the Duke players were animals. And truth be told, they made White people look like asses. This is a common phenomena these days. White people are trying to move on and far far away from the days of Slavery when Black people were looked down upon and treated like pure shit. The majority of us are not proud of this history. And yet, there are a number of Black people who won’t let us forget.  And maybe we shouldn’t, but damn it, there has got to come a time when we both look at ourselves and each other, admit to all our mistakes, Black and white and get the F*&% Over it. We can never move on if we keep blaming each other for things we had no Control over! I didn’t live back then and neither did you.

So, what does this have to do with Channon and Christian? Because just as white’s are shown their mistakes and evil ways via the news, so should Blacks. Black and White are both capable of horrendous acts and we need to admit to that.

Yesterday I came across this :

Knox Blacks Celebrate Carjacking Rapists in ‘Party’

St. Nicolas Thief, president and founder of Black Poverty Speaks, along with many local Knoxville blacks who live in the Washington Pike area has organized a social action protest celebration championing Lemaricus Davidson and Letalvis Cobbins.

Davidson and Cobbins are the brothers and two of the five suspects charged in the carjacking, kidnapping, rape and murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

“We’re coordinating the celebration to to jive with the march angry whites are planning in memory of the victims and because of the ‘media black-out’ they note the case is receiving from national news networks,” Thief, who is currently stationed in Knoxville, said.

“We’re celebrating underprivileged Knoxville blacks who victimize privileged Knoxville whites,” he added.

I was going to post this yesterday but found I couldn’t find an actual “news” link or “newspaper” link to this story.

I found the source was a white supremist blog. Ugh.

Yes the White Supremest/Nazi’s are pushing this story hard. I felt dirty just being on the site.

Nevertheless, if both are true (the plannings of a March by the Nazi’s/Black Poverty Speaks) I say, I’m fine with it.

 Why? Because we need extremists in this country. HOLD ON NOW…I don’t want to lose you yet.

When I see or stumble upon a White Supremest website or person, I am reminded of how much I don’t want to be like them. That I am disgusted by their behavior. I assume the same for a majority of Blacks or hope that when you see a group like “Black Poverty Speaks” you say the same thing.

Extremists are at either side of the spectrum..FARRRRRRRRRR on the other side, it’s up to the rest of us to come somewhere in the middle.

LaShawn’s Barber Cornertalked of this a couple of days ago also…as have numerous other blogs. But LaShawn is Black. She is a columnist for the Washington Examiner and has the same opinion that alot of us do, that this Murder was horrific and why aren’t we hearing about it. And let me be clear, I only note the fact that she is Black because of the story.

Reading her post, reinforced my own thoughts about this. It’s good to see evil in the world so the rest of us can come together and acknowledge our condemnation of it.
