Before I get started I want to take time to honor those who passed 11 years ago today. Not a day goes by that I think of that horrific day. We will never forget those who perished and we will definitely never forget those who sacrificed their lives to try and save others. God Bless.
For those of you that know me well, I don’t deal with absurdity very well. That’s not a bad thing, I don’t think anyone should deal with absurdity well. In my house this year I vowed not to watch one inning of the Red Sox because I felt that the collapse of last year was a sign of things to come and the organization had done its fan base a true disservice, so I decided not to watch. I look pretty good with that decision.
- The video from the Yahoo blogger that said the Romney’s/Republicans “are happy to have a party with black people drowning”. Referring to the Convention going on while Hurricane Isaac was hitting New Orleans during the RNC.
- Reports that during the RNC that a black cameraman from CNN was heckled so much that the hecklers had to be removed. They were throwing nuts at the man and saying “This is how we feed animals.”
- A video that surfaced at the DNC of a woman speaking on how Romney would ruin the country if elected and that if she ever saw him she would “Kill Him”
- This example closed all the doors for me. Musician Nikki Minaj, who happens to be African-American, came out in support of Mitt Romney. The backlash was stomach turning, with physical threats and being called an “Uncle Tom” for supporting Romney.
