My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the tag “NAACP”


I just caught a segment on cable where they were interviewing Congressman Rush and he made a complete fool out of himself.  Not only did he show he has no business being on TV, he also verified the fact that he should not be in the Congress. He was an embarrassment to the black community that he was elected to represent.  I do not know if he is too old and the senility has set in, or if he is just uneducated.  I am sorry to be so blunt; but, I know no other way to approach the subject.   This man could hardly hold a thought much less deliver the thought in a somewhat straight fashion.  The interview was, of course, about the Trayvon Martin tragedy and he was grossly misinformed, or he is just a racist, and was telling complete lies.  Let’s hope that he was misinformed; because, I would hate to think that the people of his district are dumb enough to continue to elect a person of this caliber to represent them.

He stated that Mr. Zimmerman quoted things from his mouth that were racial thus proving that he, George Zimmerman, was a racist which he, Bobby Rush, said justified the pursuit of civil rights charges.   That probably would be correct and prove Rush right if it were true.   But, alas, it is completely false only proving that Bobby Rush is a liar who knows better or he is a bigot.  My personal opinion is that he is both a liar and a bigot. The Martin family, their attorneys, and the Attorney General of Florida, that filed the charges, have said it is not and was never about racism, period.  He and all the race baiters, such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, are the problem when it comes to race relations in America.   They do not want the word “Nigger” or “Nigga” used but there they go acting like one.   I grew up playing football with a black kid named “Preacher” and we called each other names all the time.  I was “whitey” or “cracker” or “honky” and I sometimes called him “nigga”.  All these terms were “terms of endearment” and we had many good laughs.  Notice, he had more names for me than I of him.  I remember  once we got into a fight after a game, and he and I stood back to back to defend ourselves.  By the way, I had it worse than he because I happened to have one of the guy’s, that I beat on, father for civics class.  I do not remember my grade, but he was hard on me afterwards.

Folks, we need to get over this race stuff.  I have no problem with other races as long as they get educated, get a job and take care of their families and do not want my help in the raising of their kids.  If they act like a man, I’ll certainly treat them like a man. I am no better than or worse than any other race as long as the person of that race stands on his own two feet and behaves as “GOD” intended him to do.  I know some have, or will have, a problem with my bluntness; but, I truly feel it is the only way to over come this nonsense of a racial divide in this country.  They have to quit playing the race card to try to win arguments; and when we find racism, we have to help stomp it out.  We must learn to live and let live and the “haters be damned”.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so. If we want this country to be as great as it can be, we must be as “brothers in the foxholes of war” and have one another’s backs.

Discounted Membership Touted for NAACP

The NAACP, now here is an insane group of people, real thinkers, movers and shakers. They vote overwhelmingly and suggest strongly that all of their members vote democratic.

They invite the opposition to speak: and then put out fools like Hilary Shelton to dry what might be the best move in years to help the black community. Mitt Romney said he would “let all federal education funds follow the student”. Dummy Shelton, said it was code for “vouchers”. Here’s my take: Let’s not speak in code for “vouchers”. Lets not speak in code, lets scream it from every roof top “VOUCHERS YES FINALLY!!!”   That will allow every parent in every community to send their child to better schools, thusly becoming a better and more affluent member of society.

Member, oh yes, that gets me back to membership in the NAACP. One reason Shelton and the NAACP do not want vouchers is that just might limit their membership. I say this because as it turns out, the NAACP gives a hefty discount to convicts for prison membership. The regular fee is $30, but the prison fee for membership is $12. That’s a whopping 60% discount for prisoners.

Now that’s just what I would want to attract to any organisation I might start. “Common Sense” would be to attract the finest your race has to offer, not the worst. I know I must be missing something in this  common sense stuff and maybe, just maybe, it does make “common sense” as they are all of the same persuasion.

How do you like them there “Common Sense” apples?
