EXSCUSE ME........WHAT DOES PROGRESSIVE HAVE TO DO WITH EXPLOITING YOUR 10YR OLD???????

-- Posted by lamont on Thu, Jan 19, 2012, at 8:04 AM

Seems to me this is how our system works. Find a niche market and take advantage of it. People may not like it but we certainly shouldn't stop it...or should we?

-- Posted by bondyweb on Thu, Jan 19, 2012, at 8:18 AM

I don't like the changes, but then I didn't do e-mail 25 years ago either. If it works for the family, is there any concern for the rest of us OLd EX flaggers? :-{

-- Posted by wh67 on Thu, Jan 19, 2012, at 10:18 AM

All that rational thinking...and...a concealed carry permit. Dang! I love this country.

-- Posted by junkyard dog on Thu, Jan 19, 2012, at 7:14 PM

I'LL SAY IT NOBODY ELSE WILL.....THAT WAS SO FAR OVER THE TOP IT'S NOT WORTH A RESPONSE.THE REGRESSION OF THESE REMARKS ARE BEYOND SEDITION AND YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY I WILL BE ON MY LAWN WITH A 12 GUAGE........WHEN SOME RIGHT WINGER WITH A NEED TO GO BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS SHOWS UP,(AND THEY WILL) I WILL BLOW THERE HEAD OFF...........REMARKS LIKE THOSE WILL MAKE SURE THAT HAPPENS.........UNBELIVEABLE.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!A STEP TO FAR.......

Mike, sheriff Joe isn't all that great. Being investigated for basically ignoring assaults including rape committed against illegals. This includes rape of minor girls. Obstruction of justice, a whole laundry list of things. And before you bring up how other countries tend to ignore our rights when we are there, I always thought we were better than them. Rape of a child is is WRONG and doesn't get a pass because she is not here legally, or her parents aren't here legally.

While I remember the good old days also, I also remember all the bad things of the good old days. Words and terms used that I will not mention here. The ones I used when I sent you an e-mail. Those aren't the good old days!

Every older generation has found lots that it didn't like about the younger generation and wished for the good old days. Thank God there has been progress. While today isn't perfect, in many ways it's a far cry better than the good old days.

I was really hoping this blog wouldn't really go political, and stay focused on the morals or lack thereof in regards to the picture that is in the link. Since it hasn't, here goes. The sexualization of children has become a big business. Just look at the shows on cable. Funny thing though, a huge uproar over a show about American Muslim families, and not a freaking word about what is being done to little girls! They are becoming a commodity used to sell clothes, makeup, etc. And not a word! A whole profitable industry built around corrupting little girls and not a word! This is the great and glorious private sector that is the salvation of our country? Turn little girls into sex objects for profit? And people wonder why I have a problem with the private sector. These pictures and shows prove they have zero morals when it comes to making a buck!!!!!

Lastly, CJW, the good old days included the lynching of black people be cause they got uppity and stood up for their rights. Have you forgotten that? That's what Lamont was talking about.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 6:30 AM

CJW, and things wont change as long as there are folks out there who make comments like "My wetbacks or my "n's". This is a learned behavior. It passes from generation to generation. I know white slavery still exists here, just the same as Asian slavery.

Now on to the real subject of the blog.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 7:22 AM

I know a woman who lives in this community who was a slave in the 60's and 70's. She was born in a third world country and around the 6th grade was taken and put into forced labor. She got away around her 18th birthday and eventually made it to the states. She has raised three professional kids, never talks about her time behind walls except with her cousin who was a slave with her. She lived through martial law, all guns taken, except for the government and police, and no voting. She likes it here.

-- Posted by skeeter on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 7:23 AM

Oh, the terms I used, I heard just last year while out working and conversing with some folks in the neighborhood I was working in.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 7:24 AM

The jump from a 10 year old modeling "age inappropriate clothing" to the US transformation to communism? I got whiplash just reading these comments.

-- Posted by bondyweb on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 10:41 AM

SO WE GET IT STARAIGHT CJW I man up all the time......AND I will stand by what i said......you see going back to me does not equate to a good time in all respects and if you dont understand that maybe you should check it out.And I didnt threaten anyone or intimadate. You want to see some threats look at some of the right wing comments on this blog but you see I guess it's ok with you because it's them.If YOU WERE ME LISTENING TO THIS ADVOCATION OF TOTAL RIGHT WING IDEAOLOGY THAT INSULTS ,THREATENS AND ATTEMPTS TO BELITTLE...put you in your place. I dont think you would have a reaction but to let it be known you will protect yourself and your family.FUNNY thing I AM MARRIED TO A WHITE WOMAN FROM alabama who feels the same way.

So the daily rant that implys that we should go back doesnt set well with me and it is daily.I am neither totally liberal nor totally right wing I am for what is humanly right,so label me as you wish but dont tell me about going back you see I have yet to stand on the same podium you have.I have a leg up trying to get there and I see the right as and impediment to that no matter what I do. Your candidates showed that to us in the last couple of weeks......So the proof is public, you dont see me ranting about it daily and insulting people, is that what it takes?

I lived through back then....it was not pleasant in or out of uniform. YOU DID NOT WALK IN MY SHOES SO DONT TELL ME WHAT BACK THEN MEANT TO ME....OK......OR WHAT A RIGHT WINGER STANDING ON MY LAWN YELLING INSULTS MEANS TO ME.

-- Posted by lamont on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 10:43 AM

Your not the only one who got whiplash. I believe it was Zook who got off of Roy's topic with his rant.

So much negativity in his life makes me wonder if he has any thing positive to say..

Technology, science, medical I'm older then him and enjoy many things today that we didn't have back in the 50's

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 10:45 AM

I FOR THE LIFE OF ME DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW EXPLOITATION OF A TEN YEAR OLD CAUSED A TIRADE FROM YOU ZOOK.......THAT MAKES NO SENSE......AND CJW.....IN CASE YOU HAVNT READ I CONDEMN BAD THINGS I DONT CARE IF YOUR WHITE , BLACK OR GREEN. For your info MINORITY'S get charged with HATE CRIMES,they also get longer sentences for the same crimes whites do.OH I know that doesnt count.

FUNNY how you dont understand some things CJW you want to make this personal and I will not fall into that.YOU ARE ENTITLED TO SEE THE WORLD AS YOU SEE IT......SO AM I. YOU have a stereo typed idea about me that's ok.....your not 70 and you havent lived my life.

BONDY WEB...... THAT WAS MY POINT NOTHING ELSE.

-- Posted by lamont on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 11:13 AM

Oh CJW I think its up to Roy and no one else where he wants this blog to go to. He will either say as he has done before "Stay on Topic" or he will say "continue on with your off topic discussion"

Another thing which has been said on these blogs often "write your own blog"

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 12:28 PM

Stages Moms have always been around. Some of the High Profile Celebrities had a pushy Mom standing behind her/him . There are so many to name who did well with her/his Mom pushing and then there are those who had falling outs and I will say not just Moms but both Parents. One comes to mind Gypsy Rose Lee... She went onto fame.

However with all that said, I am totally against dressing up little girls to look like some adult selling sex...... It is wrong in my book!

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 1:53 PM

CJW...... I TOLD YOU YOU WHERE MAKING PRESUMPTIONS BASED ON WHAT ?????????? YOU HAVNT SAID ANYTHING I DISAGREE WITH ABOUT THE PLEDGE ETC....... SO WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM....AND IF YOU REALLY READ MY POSTS OPENLY YOU WOULD KNOW THAT SO DONT TRY TO TELL ME WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE WHAT. I AM PRETTY EXSPLICITE ABOUT WERE I AM COMMING FROM.I DIDNT RANT about THE COP IN WASHINGTON. I stated what he did....HE SHOT A TEENAGER IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WHO WAS HANDCUFFED FACE DOWN,NOT RESISTING......WHAT WOULD YOU CALL THAT???????? I CALL IT AND EXECUTION.

You have never heard me call for the exsclusion of any of the things you set forth so why would you make the accusation you just did???IN MY MIND......DID YOU ASK ME OR YOU JUST KNOW.....GIVE ME A BREAK

Now seeing how you already did some research remember I said they do get charged.Now let me tell you why I feel they dont get charged with a hate crime as often as they should.FOR SOME REASON there is a sense in this country that minority's cant be prejudice I for one have a hard time accepting that trend of thought but that's me......Thats like a person saying I cant be prejuidiced I am black,WHAT A CROCK !!!!! BUT EVEN WORST IS THE PERSON WHO BELIEVES THAT. DO YOU HAVE SOME HEARTBURN CJW? THATS YOUR BUSINESS BUT PLEASE DONT PROJECT IT ONTO ME.MY SENSE OF FAIRNESS HAS COST ME ALL MY LIFE but I will not change from attempting to say whats right and whats wrong.You want to know how I feel about something better to ask than assume.I will stand up for those who have been harmed due to no fault of there own simply because someone doesnt like them for one reason or another thats me. I will go to my grave defending the rights of the individual as long as that individual is not doing harm TO THIS SOCIETY AND THE PEOPLE IN IT.

nOW I HOPE THAT CLEARS THIS UP ESPECIALLY THE PARAGRAPH THAT BEGINS " just a few I could go on for days"

MY POSTS ARE NOT ONE SIDED SO DONT TRY TO MAKE THEM OUT TO BE.... YOU ARE CHERRY PICKING.....AND TRY AND REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT SUBJECTED TO WHAT I AM DAILY........AND GUESS WHAT IM STILL SANE.......

-- Posted by lamont on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 3:28 PM

Roy: Just to join in the "off-topic" fun I have to say 2 things.

1. Unless you have formed your own government, you can't legally be accused of censorship.

2. I could be wrong about statement #1.

-- Posted by bondyweb on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 6:05 PM

And the "Jews went meekly." Yep Lamont, you are ever so misunderstood.

"MY POSTS ARE NOT ONE SIDED SO DONT TRY TO MAKE THEM OUT TO BE.... YOU ARE CHERRY PICKING.....AND TRY AND REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT SUBJECTED TO WHAT I AM DAILY........AND GUESS WHAT IM STILL SANE......."

-- Posted by lamont on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 3:28 PM

You are more nutty than one of Eagle Eye's holiday fruit cakes. You are so wronged you poor, poor human being. You are subjected to what you are subjected to becuase of what you say! Keep your mouth shut and people will leave you alone. If you do not want to be called out on your bull---do not give people the ammo. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it probably is a duck!

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 6:13 PM

LETS SEE OPINION MISSY....I APOLOGIZED FOR ANY MISUNDERSTANDING YOU HAD IN THE CONTEXT THAT THE STATEMENT WAS MADE..... IF THAT WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU THAT'S UP TO YOU.WHY DONT YOU TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE.I AM OLD FASHION I WONT GO TO THE GUTTER WITH A WOMAN SO RANT ON IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD.........QUACK,QUACK,QUACK.

-- Posted by lamont on Fri, Jan 20, 2012, at 6:55 PM

ZOOK I RECIEVE UP DATES ALL THE TIME ABOUT RETIREMENT AND OUR BENEFITES I HAVE NOT BEEN QUITE I HAVE BEEN WRITTING LETTERS AND TALKING TO SOME GENERAL OFFICERS I KNOW. WHAT HAPPENED TAXE WISE LAST YEAR WAS NOT THE ADMINISTRATION IT WAS FINANCE NOT TAKING WHAT THEY WERE SOPPOSED TO.

PROPOSALS DONT BOTHER ME WHEN I KNOW ABOUT THEM THAT'S WHEN THE FIGHT STARTS.I am more upset with the people who allow these kinds of proposals to go forward....ala the appropriations commette.....they see us as they see unions and pensions that they want to cut to balance the budget.They want us to take lump sums and then you are sopposed to invest it in their stock market if you loose that is your fault and you wind up with noda...they get to use your money..That is not this administration proposal.I will not get to the partisan part because neither side contrary to popular beliefe have our best interest at heart.The military will be cut back to pre war size that is a given.The problem is the cost of the all volunteer force.The cost is too high,so they have a political choice they can reintroduce the draft(which i advocate)or they can cut retirement and future benefites.NEITHER CHOICE IS PALATABLE TO THE POLETICIANS.OUR MEDICAL BENEFITES KEEP DECLINING AS THE WARS DECLINE BECAUSE AS LONG AS WE ARE NOT IN THE PUBLIC EYE THEY CAN DO AS THEY WANT.....YOU NEED TO GET YOU A COPY OF THE LATESET AF TIMES......the cost are astronomical.E-5 BAH is 942.00 YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.......GET THE TIMES BROTHER

-- Posted by lamont on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 3:29 AM

HEY I DONT LIKE NEWT..... BUT THAT IS NO REASON TO CALL HIS WIFE NAMES....LIKE WE SAY ON THE BLOCK .....LEAVE THE KITCHEN FOLKS ALONE.

WE HAVE ALL TALKED ABOUT THE PAY AND BENEFITES OF OUR LEGISLATURES BOTH LOCAL AND FED ......AND NONE of them have stepped up and said we will take a ...percent pay cut....ha! they aint gonna do it.....I think that ought to be a question in the next election...what say you????????I THINK IT GOES TO LEADERSHIP.........BUT SEE IF YOU DO NOTHING YOU GET AUTOMATIC PAY RAISES ON THE FED SIDE......THATS CONGRESS AND SENATE.....ZOOK REMINDED ME OF THAT LAST NIGHT......

THE child is being used and you see it all the time,for young women it's the beauty contest deals, for the boys it's the unrealistic sports expectations and the circus goes on.I preached to the kids I MENTORED....THE SPORT WAS A VEHICLE TO GET AND EDUCATION NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.THE EDUCATION IS PRIORITY.THAT MESSAGE HAS NOT CHANGED......WEAK PARENTS advocating let the child do as they want need to check out what that leads up to. Take a look at what happens in nature..AND THAT AINT IT......GOT TO GO

-- Posted by lamont on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 4:06 AM

Oh, Mike, I did some research and and the total amount of foreign aid and that includes military aid is 48 billion dollars. That equals 3% of the deficit spending. 48 billion sounds huge, 3%, not so huge.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 8:30 AM

Zook I'm out here......Going to write a new story in a couple hours. You will love it! :)

I'll be staying up late tonight to watch the Florida Primary numbers come in. It was a hoot watching the Iowa primary numbers come in. Those two old lady's they called up to get the last numbers made it worth while to stay up late.

It was a really big "shoe"

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 8:36 AM

Stupid parents? Different, yes. Better than parents who teach their kids terms like nigger, spic, kike,whop,wetback,honky,white trash,trailer trash,queer,faggot and the list goes on, I'll take the parents in the article in a heartbeat.

To everyone I have offended, I am truly sorry, but these words are still being used and I am sick and tired of them and what they breed being swept under the rug.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 9:14 AM

Roy: you really take the cake putting in all those slang words and then saying you are sorry if you offended anyone. Does that make it right to do it? The answer is NO, I called Lamont out for using the slang words and not going to let you slide by either. You must think you are better than others to do that.

-- Posted by Eagle_eye on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 10:56 AM

Joe,I don't think I'm better than "others". A remark was made concerning the parenting skills of a set of parents, I voiced my opinion that those skills are far better than the skills that teach hate and intolerance of others based on race, color, origin or sexual orientation. Trying to ignore the fact that these words are still being taught and used, even by some people on these blogs doesn't cut it.

Have you called Mike out on his use of the term queers yet??

Just wondering.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 11:21 AM

Having a gay son the word queers is hurtful. To me it's no better then using other profane words

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 11:26 AM

Oh, I failed to mention the pass Mike got for raghead. These are not slang Joe, they are SLURS!

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 11:31 AM

O Mister I don't know what shows my gay son watches as he is a grown man in his 40's and I have never discussed with him if it was ok to call him a queer. We don't sit around and talk about gays when there is so much more to talk about

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 12:05 PM

Roy:

You are so outraged over improper slang terms and turned around and removed the blog where Dear Ole Lamont says the Jews went meekly. Way to go dude. Nice move. Speaking of sweeping things under a rug!

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 12:42 PM

Get your facts straight OpinionMissy. You have just made a world class fool of yourself! That wasn't my blog and as far as I know, that one is still around.

Improper slang terms? Try slurs! Best guess is that you are one of those who use those terms and others and justify it with "Well their just slang terms"

Total hypocrite and uninformed. Be very careful when you accuse me of something. Have your facts straight. I will nail you every time, just like I have today.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 12:49 PM

Mr. Pratt:

So sorry. You are correct. I did not have my facts straight. Truly sorry. The comments in question were on Mike's blog---NOT yours.

As far as "nailing" me...adda boy to you. As far as you ASSUMING that I am "one of those" (your words not mine)...well, let us just say that your terms say a lot about you sir. I am a Jewish person who has grown up with racism because of my religion/background. I would guess that you probably profess to be far better than you are because it is you who puts people into groups and ASSUMES what/how someone is. While you point a finger at me, there are 3 pointing back directly at you.

I think it is kind of "sick" that you posted a picture of a 10 year old on your blog. Why draw any more attention to the matter if you find it so disgusting? And why would we not want to read the article? That girl in the photo has on more clothes than most kids wear in our local schools.

I am a hypocrite. Okay. I can agree with that. And so are you Mr. Pratt and I am sure not nearly as perfect or "PC" as you would like us to believe. Afterall, I am one of "those people."

Your words Mr. Pratt:

"Improper slang terms? Try slurs! Best guess is that you are one of those who use those terms and others and justify it with "Well their just slang terms"

"Total hypocrite and uninformed. Be very careful when you accuse me of something. Have your facts straight. I will nail you every time, just like I have today."

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 12:49 PM

One of those people...oh boy.

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 1:37 PM

My point to this whole blog is to point out how children are being dressed like little hookers in order to make a buck!

Slang is not the same as slur. I read about you being Jewish, and you are one of those I apologized to when I listed the terms that so many are willing to accept as slang. My apologies to you if you truly don't use any of the terms I listed or others.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 1:53 PM

IT IS AMAZING THAT SOME PEOPLE WILL USE TERMINOLOGY REAPEDETLY AND CONSIDER IT OK......WHEN THE SAME TERMS ARE USED IN THE CONTEXT OF AND EXAMPLE THERE SENSIBILITIES GET RILED..........I DONT USE SLURS....SO WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT EAGLE EYE?????? AND AGAIN OPINION MISSY.......DID YOU READ THE APOLOGY OR ARE YOU SAYING NO APOLOGY IS GOOD ENOUGH???? I CAN LIVE WITH EITHER BECAUSE I TRIED.....BECAUSE IF YOU WANT TO USE ME AS AND EXAMPLE 2 CAN PLAY THAT GAME.....NOT THAT I WANT TOO.....AND NOBODY REMOVED ANYTHING SO YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FIGHT........

-- Posted by lamont on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 2:02 PM

As the grandfather of 5 bi-racial grandchildren, I really take offense at those slang terms. I remember having the crap kicked out of me because I stood up for my friends in school who were those slang terms.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 2:10 PM

OM there has been many interpretations on the term "Jews walked Meekly"

some believed that it meant "they walked Meekly" to their deaths because they didn't know what lay ahead of them when they walked into the showers and then there was Ben-Gurion who had an agenda, he wished to change the attitude of the young Israelis, who tended to be contemptuous of Holocaust Victims, dismissing them as weaklings who walked meekly to their deaths. I know Lamont and I know he wouldn't of meant what Ben-Gurion had said.

I made an error in my first comment today I said the Florida Primary, when in fact its the South Carolina Primary today

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 2:11 PM

Slang/slur---both are disgusting---none acceptable.

Lamont, I read what you said. What gets me is your repeated blah-blah-blah over how ill treated you are due to the color of your skin and then you go and make an off colored remark about the Jews (and MsM wants to say there are many ways you could have meant it...whatever). Your "apology" is fine but this poor me because of the color of my skin thing is old. Perhaps the way that you act gets you the treatment that you get. When you walk around with a chip on your shoulder and indicate that you are "owed" something by all because of the way a few idiots have treated you, it is insulting to those of us who do not live our lives in such a way.

There are many forms of racism in this country and not all of them include racial slurs, rude or ignorant comments, etc. I respect the fact that you recognize that your statement could have been offensive. Thank you for the apology.

And Lamont, I do believe that a few posts above I told Mr. Pratt that I was sorry---I was wrong/incorrect that he had deleted a blog. He "nailed me" and I admit, I barked up the wrong tree. Now, I bow to you Lamont. Please forgive me for bringing up the fact that you have a chip on your shoulder and do not think very highly of other people.

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 4:39 PM

Ok Lamont I guess all those racist slurs Roy typed in don't bother you even when you have stated in the pass you won't stand for anyone black or white using the one word against you or others.

Roy you also stated you hate all the slang/slurs,/labeling whatever word you want to use, you still typed them in just like you use them alll the time.

So just type in any words you want and then say your sorry if it offended anyone, bit late after the comment is made.

-- Posted by Eagle_eye on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 5:59 PM

No answer on Mike Joe?

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 6:01 PM

OPINION MISSY......THANKYOU BUT THERE IS NO GOTCHA IN MY AGENDA.....IT OFFENDED YOU I RESPECT THAT........PLEASE RESPECT THAT THE RQUIREMENT TO BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST IN MY CASE DOES NOT REQUIRE ME TO DO ANYTHING BUT BE ME.I WALK TALL,SPEAK THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND I AM HARD DRIVING.THOSE ARE QUALITY'S THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DONT LIKE AND TO BE BLACK AND HAVE THEM IN SOME QUARTERS BRINGS ABOUT A LESS THAN GOOD RESPONSE. AND COULD GET YOU KILLED IN SOME PLACESES. IN other words I do NOT fit the stereo type at all.

I have a great life opinion missy but the things I talk about do happen daily.I AM sbout change and making it better I will not ignore when It happens.You said something very profound that you should consider(I AM NOT CHASTISING)"PERHAPS THE WAY THAT YOU ACT GETS YOU THE TREATMENT YOU GET" WE CALL THAT BLAMING THE VICTIM that is the same reason you got mad about my statement.I am not what someone thinks I should be I am what I AM..... AND INDIVIDUAL.

I WILL TELL YOU A STORY.....I put together the entire parking plan and requirements for and excercise here years ago that was bigger than red flag.I talked to people all over the world on the telephone .When they got here a capt walked up to me......and bear in mind I am in uniform,with a name tag looked me straight up and down asked me where could he find me......I said you are looking at him ....he said OH!!! YOU SEE HE DIDNT HEAR A BLACK AS HE PERCIEVED ONE ON THE TELEPHONE..... I HAD TALKED TO HIM SEVERAL TIMES.....point being take me as and individual not as what you percieve I should be,I am proud and I am humble they go hand and hand,I am strong but I do cry I'll give you the shirt off my back if I SEE THE NEED.BUT PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TELL ME WHAT IT IS TO BE BLACK IN AMERICA.

REMEMBER THIS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND BLACKS OF AMERICA SHARE A COMMON BOND...TO BE BORN A SLAVE AND TO DIE ONE........SLAVERY. IN N.Y.WE KNOW THAT .That is why they cover each others backs........DONT YOU DARE BOW TO ANYONE, .......I might have a chip on my shoulder,But I know this, if I do I earned It......THE PEOPLE I DONT THINK HIGHLY OF I TELL THEM,AND MOST OF THEM ARE BIGOTS........HAVE A GREAT DAY......

-- Posted by lamont on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 6:19 PM

EAGLE EYE.......WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO TAKE ROYS POST OUT OF CONTEXT ?????????? I AM NOT .IF I thought for one minute that ROY WAS USING THOSE TERMS IN OTHERE THAN AND EDUCATIONAL SENSE. I would be all over him AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE KNOWS THAT.NICE TRY BUT NO CIGAR........You know what the fact that he had to point out the difference between SLANG and SLUR says a whole lot, maybe you should consider that.......THERE is no liberal hipercrisy here if that is what your trying to get to.........come on!!!! FUNNY you didnt get upset with hommer calling me everything but a child of god with his snide racial remarks whats up???????? YOU HAVE AND AWAKENING??????

-- Posted by lamont on Sat, Jan 21, 2012, at 6:54 PM

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
