The treachery, calumny and malfeasance of corrupt trade union officers like Beck, Hoffa and Fitzimmons are both widely known and legendary; still, they pale in comparison to those of the gluttonous corporate titans who receive 30 million dollar bonuses for driving their companies into the ground, annihilating the savings of countless hard working Americans in the process.
I suspect that the great majority of my fellow rednecks enjoys a forty-hour week, holiday leave, workers' compensation provisions and paid sick leave. Do you believe that these fair and just benefits simply appeared out of thin air, or that magnanimous employers examined their consciences and conveyed them out of the goodness of their loving hearts? If you do, perhaps you might be interested in the fine pair of breeding mules I have for sale.
There is an easy solution to all this; recruit a few retired SEALs to storm the Rice family compound and take all those therein hostage, to be released the moment Condi files her nomination papers and commits to Palin as her running mate.
The GOP has shot itself in the foot so seriously this time that Ms Rice is now our only realistic hope of winning back the country.
If there exists on earth one group of people which needs no politically correct affirmative action to legitamize the status of its music, it is black Americans. I speak as one who in my youth obsessively bloodied my fingers trying to duplicate (alas, quite unsuccessfully) the licks of Robert Johnson, Charlie Christian and Albert King.
Music acknowledges no color distinctions; crap is crap, be it black, white, olive or purple.
Most parents understand that to uncritically praise and reward one's child for all its behaviors, be they acceptable or not, will cause that child to grow up with unrealistic expectations of the outside world which will propel him into early frustrated, immature and self-defeating coping strategies.
Please, my fellow superannuated flower children, try to understand that blacks are just as capable as are whites of cranking out bovine excreta masked as art. Just because a performer happens to be black shouldn't imply that we must tug at our forelocks and proclaim him a new messiah on the basis of his boring, musically illiterate and superficial cacophony.
As opined by previous posters, I too would have liked to have seen him taken alive, then hanged by the testicles (if any) at ground zero until he pegged out.
On an unrelated note, I just can't get over those SEALS. I'm still back wondering how they could have lain on the deck of that cutter, which must have been undulating at least a little, as no sea is ever totally calm, and picked off three somali pirates through a small window at some 20 yards without harming their hostage. How on earth did they know that two of them wouldn't choose the same target?
In a world hungry for superheroes, here's a great place to start looking.
