quote of the day

This one comes via email from one of our troops serving in Iraq. I am certain that he will be branded a "racist" for saying what he did, but I agree with him about the people in New Orleans:

"Get off your ass, grab a broom, a shovel, or whatever, and help yourself and your neighbors get themselves out of the crap they're in! Stop waiting for a handout! You be the one that gives out the food. You be the one that carries the old ladies. You be the one that picks up the trash. Maybe somewhere along the way you'll find your self-respect? Maybe somewhere along the way you'll understand what it is to help someone else for a change. Maybe then you'll understand how frigging weak you look and how much you embarrass yourself and those around you by actually trying to be helpless and worthless and having a "slave" mentality. Your dignity is only a step away! Take the step!"

That's good preaching. It's good advice. But you won't hear it coming out of the mouths of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. Black "leaders" don't think that way and they don't want their sheeple doing it, either.

Just sit on your ass with your hand out and whine. Then expect the government to fill your hand with something you didn't earn. Get pissed off and riot when your hand isn't filled quickly enough to suit your begging self. Cry "RACISM!" all the while.

BEJUS! Snatch all the American greenback dollars you can while calling yourself an "African American," even though you've never been to Africa and probably couldn't find the continent on a globe.

That's the way to earn respect.


Great post. Thanks.

I saw this seed planted in the White House PR today, about getting 'these people' their welfare checks. You're right Rob, you're all racists to assume that every victim in NO is on welfare.

The irony is, you're playing into the hands of the same regime who consider your mama drawing a social security check as a welfare queen. How many of your readers are on SSDI? They'd like to kick you off the dole too.

I don't draw any "dole." I've never asked for any, either.

As far as my mama goes, you've got your fucking nerve to call THAT check she received a "dole." My father worked his ass off for almost 50 years paying taxes for that check. My mama worked almost 20 years paying into the same "fund."

Neither one lived long enough to get back half of WHAT THEY PAID IN.

If that's a "dole" to you, you need to be dragged off and shot.

Ya know, Gut . . .

What you said would make fucking incredible sense, if you actually knew, as you pretend you do, what the fuck happened in NO, which you do not, and if you had actually talked to some of those who had to live through the hellish shit you trivialize.

You are doing a bit of the Forrest Gump routine here . . . revised . . . Stupid is as stupid says . . .

Until you know what the fuck actually happened--since virtually everything you mouth is via the main-stream media you love to hate . . .

Park it. Your ignorance is showing.

So, all-knowing and all-wise BJ--- er... excuse me, I meant JB--- YOU WERE THERE?

I'd like to hear some first-hand accounts to correct my "ignorance." But I DO NOTICE that your posting ISP doesn't put you anywhere NEAR New Orleans.

So... Did you RUN, or just lie?

It's incredible to me that the very same storm that was bullseye over my house on the thursday and just knocked one tree in my backyard ( hurricane glass is amazing) just two days later caused such devestation.

My point is, they're all yelling "we want, we want." These are the first people to tell the government to piss off, and now they all "want." It has nothing to do with Social Security, Welfare, or what have you. It's the basic motivation to lift yourself up, and help yourself and your neighbors, rather than sitting back, waiting for someone else, and looking for someone to blame instead of someone to help. Then they don't get pissed at the mayor for not being prepared, but pin it on the President, and that's pretty damn thin. Now the mayor wants to take more money to send first responders to Vegas! That's typical of a mayor from such a decadent place...

You go me all wrong Acidman. I DON"T consider your mama to be on the dole, nor do I think SSDI a welfare system. This is what the White House is selling - not me.

That just goes to show you how good this White House is at bamboozling us. They get ya all worked up about welfare and poor people and shit, and just like any other shocking idea - once we get used it as a society, they slip in the next level of their plan. So when they get rid of the welfare rolls, the people whose mamas don't need no checks will start calling your mama a welfare queen and saying why should they take care of her when she didn't plan her retirement better?

Don't believe me? Think about the difference between Leave it to Beaver and Sex and the City. Nothing changes overnight and usually we don't even notice it changing on a daily basis.

I could say a lot more, but I talk too much and don't wnat use up your bandwidth. Think what you will, but everything I do, say and think is meant to make the world a better place for everybody. Even an irrascible son of a gun like you.

Um, I should point out that CNN news has shown people in New Orleans doing just what the soldier said they should. It showed a woman outside the Convention Center in tears and damn near hysterical, but sweeping up the trash and trying to tidy up. Because, she said, she was afraid that if the area looked too chaotic, when the buses came to take her and her family out the drivers would be alarmed by the mess and afraid to stop.
