Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I'll have more. I just don't feel very well.
  • It's always a bad sign when a co-worker asks you if you're OK.
  • Decatur now has a sign entering the city which proclaims it the "Home of Trevor Brazile."
  • I saw a Massarati this morning.
  • I forgot to mention that after Baylor's quarterback tore his ACL early in the first quarter, he played the rest of the half.
  • Trouble in Tech Land.
  • A Montague County deputy was involved in a shooting over the weekend and he used to work for Wise County. I'll find a link.
  • If Glenn Beck drives you crazy, you'll get a kick out of this.

Beck wasn't going to play sweet Katie's game. Funny thing though, why don't we ever ask a person to explain "Black Culture"? How many times have we heard that one?
Another funny thing that just made my weekend: TCU BEAT CLEMSON!!!!

Found on Bowie News

Shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday night, Montague County Sheriff Paul Cunningham reported that a male suspect was killed when shots were exchanged between the man and two county deputies. Deputies Curtis Hamilin and Chief Deputy J.T. Mitchell were responding to a call for shots fired at 136 Country Club Drive in Nocona Hills. Cunningham said when the deputies confronted the man shots were fired and the suspect was killed. The sheriff added that details were sketchy as he had just arrived on the scene, but more would be forth coming later as the investigation continues.

I think a news worthy item that should be discussed is the firing of test missiles by Iran. Not good. How's that strategy of Obamas' working out, where we can just sit down and negotiate through diplomacy with these terrorist type folks? Boy, I thought Obama and Hillary would just have them eating out of their little paws by now.

Sorry 9:13, can't agree with you on Glenn Beck. But I completely agree with you on the Frogs. I had to watch the game on my PC (espn360.com was the only way to see it locally). Frogs kicked ass in a very hostile environment. Frogs are up to #10 - 11 in the country depending on which poll you follow. It's time to drink the purple kool-aid mother scratchers!

Wow 10:13. do you really think that Obama is racist? See that's what Glenn Beck would like you to think when in reality, all of the rich white man opinion shows are dripping with racism and have been since Obama was elected. They just can't wrap their brains around a black President and have discredited him at every opportunity. Even going so far as blaming the economy on him as well as our relations with some middle eastern countries like Iran when actually we know who "brung us" so to speak and it wasn't Obama.
I really liked Bill Maher's show last night, especially when John Waters said he voted for Obama because he WAS friends with Bill Ayers. Every Democratic country in the world exists because somebody somewhere stood up and said THIS IS WRONG.

Although I am a Glenn Beck fan, I'm not sure what he was thinking in that interview. He was deflecting the question, but I'm not sure why. I would love to know. We all know Obama has never deflected a question though. Never.

Nice to see someone else, who reads The Blog, is concerned about something other than who shot who and who got run over this weekend. Oh wait, Iran testing missiles that can carry nukes and reach Israel is Iran's way of running over Obama.

Clinton, "W" and now Obama have dropped the ball dealing with Iran. Obama has tipped his hand, with regard to not having what it takes to use military force to stop Iran, by waving in his commitment to stay the course on the "necessary war in Afghanistan." Kudos to Israel for having the stones to stand up to Iran and the rest of the milquetoast nations that sat through Ahmadinejad's rant and showed respect to Iran during the UN meeting. Bravo to Israel for having even bigger stones for having what it takes to follow through with dealing with the REAL danger that is Iran.

Since becoming POTUS, Obama has given over 150 speeches and press conferences regarding his scheme to force ObamaCare down the throats of ALL Americans but has only given one speech on Afghanistan. Clearly, Obama is far more interested in depriving ALL Americans of the right to self determination than Obama is of protecting all Americans from terrorism/danger.

Obama is a racist based on his affiliation with Rev. Wright. The fact that Obama listened to Rev. Wright does NOT make me think he is a racist. THE FACT THAT HE LET HIS LITTLE GIRLS LISTEN TO REV. WRIGHT MAKES ME KNOW HE IS A RACIST....

If you walk into my house and you watch a porno with me that does not mean you totally condone it. But if you let your kids watch it with us, you are guilty as charged.

Go ahead Liberals and right wing bash that analogy.

mzchief said...

Oh, Beck is an IDIOT. The answer to "What is 'White Culture'" is quite simple. White Culture is a part of American Culture that is NOT included in Black Culture and/or Hispanic Culture. However, Beck is correct in stating that Obama is a racist.

Just a reminder of the FACT that for 22+ years Obama was a member of an organization wherein Obama had pledged to uphold the following "12 precepts and covenantal statements" of Trinity United Church of Christ in which TUCC declares itself a "BLACK" organization with ministries focused on the "Black Community."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian...Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain 'true to our native land,' the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.

“Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the Black Value System written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee chaired by Vallmer Jordan in 1981. We believe in the following 12 precepts and covenantal statements. These Black Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They must reflect on the following concepts:

1. Commitment to God
2. Commitment to the Black Community
3. Commitment to the Black Family
4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
6. Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
11. Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
12. Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System.”


The above information was taken from TUCC's website and was included on TUCC's website until AFTER Obama finally resigned from TUCC on May 31, 2008. Remember, Obama, in his speech throwing his grandmother under the bus refused to turn his back on his spiritual mentor, Rev. Wright but ultimately resigned because Rev. Wright outed Obama for only doing what a politician had to say to appease voters who were not comfortable with Obama being a member of a racist organization.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just a question...Is the "Black Value System" akin to "White Culture"? Perhaps, Katie Couric can get Obama to answer what is the "Black Value System" or "Black Work Ethic" to which he pledged for 22+ years.

I suggest that MzChief go to Iran and handle all of the uproar regarding our diplomatic problems with the Iranian nut bag.

I would suggest however that MzChief book a one-way ticket and don't ya come back no mo, no mo, don't ya come back no mo!

And what my dear would you suggest that this great nation do that it hasn't already? Do you have all the answers Mz-Know-It All!

Do you actually think it took "stones" to be able to sit through the nut bag's speech at the UN? OMG - it takes somebody with nothing else better to do...

As far as Afghanistan, wars change all the time...the strategies will need to change as well. When our great President stated he would stay the course in Afghanistan it was stated over a year ago or more. Things change and you have to deal with it accordingly. At least he is not trying to rush into any decision or be bullied to rush into any quick decisions...he is right about that.

Don't foget to book your ticket to Iran - like TODAY!

1039 - If your argument wasn't such a typical Liberal stance, I'd accuse you of being intentionally ironic. Citing opposition to Obama's policies as proof of racism is just ignorant enough to be a genuine Liberal argument. However, using John Waters to add credibility to your argument was the type of satirical touch that keeps me guessing.

I still have not seen a good explanation of "white culture" as it is being used in this context. The way I think of it, it appears he has embraced it to a large degree, however, that does not mean that he did so out of great affection for white people. Perhaps it was a means to an end?

Rev. Wright was very anti-white. The blogger has a point about subjecting your children to this and participating for a long period of time. It does beg the question.

Could a white be elected if he/she participated with their family in a church that decried the abuses of minorities? I don't think so.

Racism is racism, no matter what direction it is pointed.

Glenn Beck is a doofus, but the question is not out of line.

10:39, Just because I don't like Obama doesn't mean I'm a racist. I don't like him because he's an amateur and has proven such since January 20th, 2009. Regardless of what you say, the guy has proven he doesn't have the experience. I would have gladly voted for J.C.Watts, Condalezza Rice or Michael Steele, people with some experience and sense. So, skin color has nothing to do with it. That's what you guy's want to believe but it's not true so good luck with that. Come 2012 you guy's will be thinking the whole Country is racist.

Calling Obama a racist reminds me of the Dave Chappelle skit where he is a blind member of the KKK.

Glenn Beck and all the Hannitys, Limbaughs and Levines of the world have absolutely lost their mind.

wordkyle said...

It's a funny thing, this discussion of "white culture." It's like pornography -- we can't define it, but we know it when we see it. African-American economist Roland G. Fryer (citing African-American psychologist Angela Neal-Barnett) defines the following behaviors as examples of "acting white":

* Getting high grades in classes.
* Speaking standard American English.
* Using strict diction in one's words.
* Answering questions asked by the teacher in class.
* Enrolling in Advanced Placement or Honors classes.
* Shopping at The Gap or Abercrombie & Fitch for clothes.
* Avoiding wearing clothes from FUBU and Tommy Hilfiger.
* Wearing shorts in Winter.
(Fryer's actual article here.)

Google "acting white" and you get a lot of hits. So although Glenn Beck may have trouble defining "white culture," apparently non-white minorities do not.

Have you actually ever watched tapes of Rev. Wright preaching and spewing his hatred for the white race? How could Obama let his kids sit there and listen to that hatred attitude? I think 11.00 is dead on. I had never thought of the fact that once you let your kids be exposed to something that controversial over and over, you are in fact condoning the behavior, guilty by association.

If I take my kids to a KKK rally every week will you call me a racist?

When a man stands in front of the church and blames the black man's bad luck, prison occupancy rate, drug addiction, etc on the white race then he is a racist. If you sit in the crowd and listen to it every week, and LET your kids hear it, then you are a racist, because you are condoning the attitude.

Interesting artilce on Glen Beck in last week's Time Mag. He has made 23 million dollars this year
railing against Obama hmmmmm....wonder what his motivation is. Seth Meyers had a good line on Beck Saturday night. he said when Kadaffi said Obama was his son "Glen Beck's nex' book jus' up an' 'rote itself"
Beck is an entertainer and those who take him seriously are being fooled by a rich clown. I enjoy clowns but I caught on to the act when I was six.

To anonymous 7:39...
Let me get this straight, you would consider news about a white politician who, until 16 months ago, spent the 22+ years prior, as a member of an organization that preaches black hate and anti-American beliefs and adherence to the White Value System and only working toward the benefit of the White Community as merely "old news." You honestly expect anyone to believe you would be just fine with some guy, who spent 22+ years in prison for fraud and embezzlement, being the guy handling your business/finances.

You do realize, 9/11 is "old news" and the U.S. is STILL hunting Osama Bin Laden and let us be honest, OBL did little more than encourage people to hate the U.S. The U.S. still hates Muammar al-Gaddafi for refusing to extradite, to the United States or Britain, the two Libyans accused of planting a bomb on Pan Am Flight 103, in 1988 and that is even older news especially considering the fact that the two Libyans were handed over in 1999.

If your spouse had cheated on you for 22+ years and had only stopped 16 months ago would you REALLY trust them not still be cheating or, at the very least, want to be cheating? News, in relationship to a person's character, regardless of how old, is important when it comes to assessing a person's integrity and intentions.

You are a moron if you honestly believe Obama having been a member for 22+ years of a racist, anti-American organization is "old news" of no value when considering the actions and intentions of Obama. Incidentally, "our country" does care about Obama's questionable affiliations, it is just that a large group of anti-American, racists did not care about Obama's dodgy past and voted for Obama. If what the majority thought really mattered then there would be no discussion about ObamaCare, there would still be slavery and weed would be legal.
