Martin Luther & MLK spin on Inauguration Day , also the truth about Juneteenth
The President is being inaugurated for Four More Years today , which is also MLK day . His speech was rumored heavy on immigration reform , and gun control . Not much on Civil Rights tho . He promises action on climate control too ( tax increases ) , in response to his 10,000 dead in that Kansas tornado . Would someone please ask Baghdad Jim ' Carny ' Carney about those numbers ?
In Obama's Book, The Audacity Of Hope , he said, " If the political winds shift in an ugly direction, I will side with the muslims." He has . He gave Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood by legitimizing those islamists , flushing our $63B in a secular state in the process . Time and again he sided w the Sharial law types and those hoping for the protections of Civil Law could just take to the back of his rather shorter Bus . MLK and Martin Luther will roll over counterclockwise at his betrayal of Civilization . Neither man would qualfy for full Civil Rights in their system , since neither was an adult muslim male . Under Sharia they don't count .
The only Societies worthy of being called Civilized have equal rights for all . How on Earth could a Black President not know that ?
Ok , on to a Texas oddity . Houston had 2 Parades today for MLK , uptown and Down . There is an annual Coin flip for the prime location between competing groups . They do not get along , yet remain loyal Democrats , blissfully unaware their President eschews Civil Societies , and when financially convenient denies his own US Citizenship . ( See yesterday's Postage ) .
Dunno if you remember SNL awarding Stevie Wonder a commissioned painting to honor his lifetime achievement and when they unveiled it the words ' Please Don't Tell Him ' were where the painting should have been . He is of course blind , and wasn't in on the gag . This is evocative of the special ' Texas ' emancipation day 6/19/ 1865 , otherwise known as ' Juneteenth ' . Students of history will note some discrepancy w the date of the original Emancipation Proclamation and the date the slaves were freed in Texas . Of course travel was difficult 150 years ago and Newspapers hard to find , much less read . Still PDUS suspects that quite a few Texans had heard tell of the status change , and they made financial decisions not to inform the help . Some two and a half years later a Galveston slave came by the news and informed all his friends and family . They told the State , and only a little late . The date the news arrived is now celebrated .
Now none will share the information between worshipful fans at those dual Parades that their Erkelesque Emperor has no Clothes . I wonder if it is PC to wonder if they are as Blind as Stevie Wonder , but I wander . Mostly I wonder why we re-elected this man .
