    You have written many a fine posting. This one is the best yet. There are no words to describe what I'm trying to say.

    Pawsitive wishes, Penny the Jack Russell dog and the next 'Paw Minister' of Britain!

  7. I didn't have any particular problem with Dr. King. I agreed with the part about not judging people based on the "color of their skin, but on the content of their character" and this is what I have always done. However, this is not what is being done now. Now, preferential treatment is being given to those of color. Even when president Obama's ideas are misguided or pathetic, he is hailed as emperor while we are criticized for being racist. I am a friend of Lawrence Douglas Wilder, the first African American Governor in the US. He is a friend to all people, and a decent and wise human being. Yet when I criticize Barack Hussein Obama.....then, I am racist.

    1. I'm sure we'd all have a problem if he was still alive. Men change according to their audience's approval.

    2. I would like to think that Dr. King would have aligned himself more in the manner of Lawrence Douglas Wilder who is still a good man working for ALL people, but we will never know. King could have joined arms with Barack Hussein Obama, and Reverend Wright. We will never know.

    3. Agree, Jane.
      Dr. King aligned himself with the working man. He was to speak in support of garbage collectors when he was assassinated.
      I cannot imagine he would not be vociferously against abortion and our entitlement culture.
      Like JFK, he'd be amazed at how the Dem party has enslaved such a large portion of our populace.
      (And it ain't just blacks.)

    4. I can only picture him standing alongside Jesse Jackson, because high standards always fall to the most common denominator and popular opinion.

      Delete
    5. Well, there IS that.
      But Jackson is a Chicago thug who took advantage of the fact he was a King associate. I think King, like Malcolm X, would not have taken Americans from Africa the way they have traveled.
      Opinion of course.
      But I've always felt there was a similar reason they were both killed.

  8. You make some interesting points that I have rarely seen expressed!

    1. It does present another point of view that is rarely discussed in these politically correct times. I'm sure I offended someone, somewhere, somehow. But I tried to be fair, honest, and to the point.

    2. In the words of a certain news channel, I think it was Fair and Balanced :-)

    3. Joy, I love you even if we don't completely agree. I can be wrong, and I can rethink my view later. I know I have offended people sometimes with my views, and although that is never my intent, it happens sometimes. You are always a fair and decent person.
