Nixon/China, Obama/DC Vouchers

The saying is “Only Nixon could go to China”.

Apparently only Obama can kill the DC Vouchers program.

You see if a white president was in charge then democrats might be subject to charges of racism, of oppressing black children to appease the teachers union.

But since our president has the proper skin tone he can allow his fellow Democrats to do this and it has nothing to do with race.

Much like inner city violence, gang violence, drugs, the slaughter and destruction of Black communities, it is ignored because it is being done by people of the same skin color and being run like political fiefdoms. As long as those fiefdoms provide the votes by (maybe buy) hook or crook all is well. And any attempt to make change, then those who are supported financially by said fiefdom scream bloody murder and racism.

And how will our media treat this? The exact opposite of how they treated Macaca.

In my opinion well meaning liberal programs have dome more to effectively re-segregate and re-create the old plantation system or maybe more the old sharecropper system than anything even the most ardent supporter of Jim Crow could have dreamed of. Take a look at colleges and high schools and see how segregated they are.

Moe Green says this:

You know, there’s a part of me that would almost prefer that this was evidence of some sort of long term payback – one that would have been in the works for about 150 years at this point – against African-Americans by the Democratic party.

Maybe there is.

And now my standard Party Invitation…

2010 seems pretty much the same so far, except for the continual Doctor Who Marathon until part 2 of the End of Time on BBC America.

And in an hour or so the cooking and the main cleaning begins.

I’m sure the year will get more exciting as it goes on.
