If you're old enough, you'll remember the original WAR OF THE WORLDS when extra-terrestrials invaded earth to destroy it.
They were some mean s.o.b.'s, traveled in packs, and none of our artillery scared them.
But something as innocent as a sneeze, the common cold germ, and they crashed and burned.
Do you remember THE GREMLINS?
So cute, but with a warning:
Never get them wet!
This nation has a lot of troubles, not the least is racism, but not as it's represented.
Last month a young white girl was raped and killed by two black men.
Now, you can't get two whites to agree about anything, and they do not join together well. It's hard to get four whites in a car together - much less fifty of them in a bus.
If this had been a black girl killed by two white men, there'd not be one television left in any Walmart in the nation.
We would do well to LEARN from the past. We should learn to tolerate each other to the point where we will ban together if even one of us has been treated unfairly.
Instead, we wring our hands over the 'plight', or nonsense, of others, then change channels.
They got 'em, but can't use 'em.
No wonder they look....uh....scared?
"Hey bro! What is it we're protesting?"
"Who cares? Let's get some free shit!"
And the answer was there all the time.
They hate to get wet.
