Truth or Consequences

Geraldine Farraro is another idiot.
~
She makes racist comments about Obama then thinks that she can vehemently deny on Good Morning America. Geraldine, your words speak for themselves. You said that if Obama was a white man or a woman, he wouldn't be in the political lead today.
~
You should have thought before you said what you really felt.
~
Would it be so bad if what you said was really true? That maybe the Democrats want an articulate and charismatic African American for a change? That a white candidate wouldn't fill this sociological and psychological need? That the things that Obama says might not be followed as closely if he was white because the country wants to heal the deep scars of a country whose founding fathers owned blacks as slaves?
~
That's not a bad thing, Geraldine.... We don't live in a historical vacuum. Best thing to do when the spinners attack you for telling the truth is to shut the F up. Everybody knows what you said is true, and the spinners will never get off it.
~
The Democrats have to choose whether they want to be honest or political. You can't have it both ways.
~
I'm sure that Ferraro isn't truly an idiot. Obviously I spoke before I thought.

For those of us looking for substance and not bluster in our leaders, it is a bad thing that votes are determined by race, either way, over substance.

It goes right to valuing the content of one's character over the color of one's skin of which Dr. King so eloquently spoke.

Fist in the air.

Peeps..... just so you know, this is the same Piscatelli dude who was emailing all over cyberspace that we won't be successful in our Marine Corps Marathon challenge.

Obviously he runs to the defense of Ferraro because of the vowel at the end of her name!

The "Free Speech" policy in this country can be so annoying.

  2. The truth shall set you free.

    On a corporate note, I got to give a code name to a project. Though I've orbitted the likes of "Project Orange" and "Project Jackman", I have never been in the select inner circle. I was in awe of the importance of such super secret works and the people that ran them. The hushed tones, heads turning at the mention of the name, the looks shot, like walking into a bar on Southie as an outsider. It was humbling.

    Now, I am the spymaster of Project Enchilada. And no, I am not talking, water boarding or otherwise.

    I am Ozymandias.
