I hope that Doctor ET will shock some of the liberals out there into the "Pursuit of Happiness" The Traditional American Way, which leads to prosperity and is fair to all citizens of the US.
WOW Funk, the man spoke the truth! Again, THANKS for sharing... Do you really think that PN or JM will jump on this band wagon? I think "NOT"....
Thank you again too Sheran, this is America and all I expect from them is to acknowledge the truth, supported by the actual facts.
If Ben Carson becomes the president in 2017 he would be the first traditional Black President. Obama is recognized so only because that is what he wishes to be called. The reality is he is bi-racial, I don't understand why he wishes to dismiss his mother and grand parents heritage and call himself black because he is only black by the color of his skin and not culturally like Herman, Ben or I.
Today we mourn the passing of an old friend by the name of Common Sense.
Common Sense lived a long life but died from heart failure at the brink of the millennium. No one really knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools, hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness.
For decades, petty rules, silly laws and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as to know when to come in out of the rain, the early bird gets the worm, and life isn't always fair.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (the adults are in charge, not the kids), and it's okay to come in second.
A veteran of the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Technological Revolution, Common Sense survived cultural and educational trends including feminism, body piercing, whole language and "new math."
But his health declined when he became infected with the "If-it-only-helps-one-person-it's-worth-it" virus. In recent decades his waning strength proved no match for the ravages of overbearing federal regulation.
He watched in pain as good people became ruled by self-seeking lawyers and enlightened auditors. His health rapidly deteriorated when schools endlessly implemented zero tolerance policies, reports of six-year-old boys charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, a teen suspended for taking a swig of mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student. It declined even further when schools had to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but cannot inform the parent when the female student is pregnant or wants an abortion.
Finally, Common Sense lost his will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, criminals received better treatment than victims, and federal judges stuck their noses in everything from Boy Scouts to professional sports.
As the end neared, Common Sense drifted in and out of logic but was kept informed of developments, regarding questionable regulations for asbestos, low flow toilets, "smart" guns, the nurturing of Prohibition Laws and mandatory air bags.
Finally when told that the homeowners association restricted exterior furniture only to that which enhanced property values, he breathed his last.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers: Rights, Tolerance and Whiner.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

"I have encountered more blacks that are racist than whites".
Yea, Yea, Yea,- Some people love playing Blacks against Blacks, especially when they have such hatred for President Obama. I don’t have a problem with conservatives or liberals. I must say that most black conservatives need to think for themselves and not resort to being a victim of the black community so that they can fit in or make others feel that they can relate too by putting down their own race; just to please the majority. I hope that your political views are true to who you really are and that it’s not a result of self-hate.
In my personal experience in life after 53 years, I have encountered more blacks that are racist than whites.
PN, I take this as a personal assault on my individualism as an American. If you examine my whole statement I ensured that it was a known fact on a personal basis. Black Conservatives and Libertarians actually think for themselves, for if we didn’t we would be in the 93% of black voters that don’t. If you think about it something is very wrong and troubling about that percentage of people giving a blank check to any political party. I’m an American who actually believes in judging a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Additionally by serving 21 years in the U.S Army as a Drill Sergeant, BNCOC SGL, AIT Instructor and a Platoon Sergeant, actually living in several different countries and several states in the US, I’ve gained a valuable leadership skill that President Obama lacks. Follow and enforce the rules and laws on the books and you will have done your job to treating all Americans equally and history will take care of the rest. I don’t hate BHO. Just his policies that are setting the country back further with crushing debt and people influenced to depend on the government instead of themselves. So yes my political views are true to whom I am and I lead by example too. Too bad for us all that the President doesn’t because I surely do.
PN, was calling me out about two months ago because I said I had encountered more blacks that are racist than whites which is absolutely true. I posted a response to PN and she didn’t respond back. I wasn’t going to hound her because I respect all people, especially a strong black woman; however I discovered this post by ET Williams that sounds a lot like what I was telling the truth about in his non pc way. Here is my blog:
And here is ET in rare form; Enjoy!
Now let’s do a combination factual about the truth in regards to blacks and our hypocrisy. The subject is Trayvon Martin and let’s start off with Dr. James Manning with the “Manning Report” and then he turns it over to another brother, Michael David Carroll that is non PC, but factual for the coup degas!
gacpl, your post yesterday at 17:54 is one of the best and it speaks volumes about the sad state of the affairs of this country.
The links above bring to my mind the song, IN THE GHETTO by Elvis.
I applaud the black folk who are standing up and speaking the truth.
Too many blacks and whites seek to wallow in self pity.
We were guaranteed the right to the pursuit of happiness.
We are not entitled to happiness without working for it.
Jimmy, my bad as I look back at your comments I can understand the humor in it now. Hind sight is 20/20 and I'm TOT didn't get humor part either.
I miss "icyman" in these blogs... I really enjoyed blogging with him. Hope he and his family are doing well!
Note to everyone.
I did not think the post by JM about taking the bottle of pain pills was very funny.
It was addressed to Sheran and JM has frequently linked she and TOT in his hate filled tripe, therefore I thought it was alright for TOT to respond as he did.
If it was humor it was in my opinion dark humor.
Because JM is a declared Liberal the rest of us are no longer free to speak critically of liberals or liberalism in general because he takes it personally.
However JM is free to hurl nasty barbs at any individual who has opposing views.
YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.
The idiotic attacks degrade this blog site and if it is going to continue I like others before me will eventually cease to participate on this medium.
If this is what Mr Watkins wants to be the webmaster over then so be it.
As I've stated many times in the past we are not only witnessing the slow death of the status of journalism as the fourth estate, we are participating in it.
With such hate filled images created on this community blog site the Courier is sinking to heretofore unseen tabloid status.
I have always admired those who make careers in the field of journalism.
It makes me sad to see such as this trash talk on my community newspapers blog site.
Just came into the barn for a break.
Thank you both for your respective responses.
I'll speak more later.
Got to finish this days chores.
Late September and October is a busy time.
See ya'll tomorrow.
sebekm, please believe that I'm aware that liberals are not bad people and yes I think they are politically misguided.
Thank you and Jimmy for your comments from yesterday.
The Courier is our community blog site. I hope we can all be respectful of each other in our commentary.
