Happy Birthday...Benjamin Franklin

"Ben Franklin, one of the founding Fathers of this country, is a great American that truly deserves a holiday today. Any other national in your face holiday celebrated today is a waste of taxpayer money and simply panders to a segment of the US population."

How I Taught My 6-Year Old About MLK Day

"Do you know who made the laws that said brown people couldn't ride in the front of the bus, and that they couldn't do other things beige people could do?"

She said: "Who?"

And I said: "They were called Jom Crow laws, and it was the Democrats who made them. "

And she said: "I hate Democrats."

Teaching your 6 year old to hate is a good thing though...

How come MLK gets a day to himself, while many other great Americans don't?

"Do you really have to ask this question? It is simply because he is black and it is a way to pacify the Jesse Jackson types of this world. Are children learn more about MLK than they do about Jesus Christ, who is the author of this man's professed faith"

Took the words right out of my mouth!

That site is actually getting comical... I no longer get mad going there. It's actually pretty funny.
