    So true Bob. We have such a long way to go…

    Look at Rebane’s Boogaloo Boyz blog just this morning, George has crossed yet another line, “wondering” out loud if proactively killing his left-wing “enemies” is justified since he “perceives” that they are endangering the health and wellness of “he and his.”

    Pretty sick stuff.

    It’s been interesting following David Brooks these past four years, it appears that his politics have been shaken to the core. Here is a passage from his Sept. 3 NYT column:

    “The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once argued that sin is buried so deep in the human soul that sweet words are insufficient to get people to give up their unjust power. ‘Instead of assured progress in wisdom and decency,’ he wrote, ‘man faces the ever-present possibility of a swift relapse not merely to animalism, but into such calculated cruelty as no other animal can practice.’
    But the realist militants who walk in King’s shadow also know that it is the U.S. Constitution that keeps us from slipping into chaos, along with all the norms and values built around it over the centuries. They know, too, that this crisis is not just about race, but also the greatness of American institutions, so scorned and derided of late, so neglected and abused.”

    A brutal review, that. The local violence-dabbling Proud Boogaloos should take note.

    If I had a nickel for every sicko Obama-burned-at-the-stake or doctored photo of Michelle as a man or ape, I could be living in Tahiti on the beach and not have to deal with these shit-4-brains death squad wannabes.

      Most bigots are socially-retarded punks, the rest are brave enough to scare women and children, but not brave enough to join the military. When dressed in camoes, toting guns, I call them the mall cops of patriotism. Their ignorance is why the last flag flown in the Civil War by the south was the flag of surrender and any future insurrection will ultimately end the same.

      Bigotry starts at home, so that’s where we need to concentrate our efforts for “a more perfect union.” As with most on-going issues, the key to success is in our children and grandchildren.

      But mostly, I fear Lincoln’s prophetic words, “A nation divided against itself cannot stand.” And this November, we will see division not seen since he made that statement back on June 16, 1858. And as he further prophesied, “I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.”

      The struggle remains the same, as will be the outcome.
