Something to Know - 27 July


1.  Immigration hysteria of today is not so much different that it was over 100 years ago.  It's just different regions and different ethnic demographics.  I just saw a Tea Party email today where the group is ganging up on John Boehner for his work in attempting to pass a House version of a watered-down bill.  The Tea Party bigotry is going to seriously damage any semblance of a Republican Party, for sure:

2.  The NRA is now all mixed in with the Stand Your Ground hysteria (hysteria....again?).   As if Whitey is who the law was made for.  How does it apply to non-whites, and where does it go from there?   Do the same principles apply, or not?:

3.  Continuing, we enter more reflections and observations that show just how complex the inter-racial battle ground on guns and homicide play out, and just where the story is the same day in and day out:

4.  The GeeOpie is bound and determined to try and kill Obama Care.  The extremists are in a do or die situation to derail and unfund it.   They are so afraid that it is working, and going to work, that this is their last ditch effort.  Why?  Because it is an Obama program, and it drives them nuts.  The Republicans will go to any end to stop it - even play the debt ceiling game again - at the risk of plunging the economy into the dark ages.  What those Republicans won't do to achieve their own selfish political games:


When the white missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said '  Let us pray.' We closed our eyes.  When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
