Now that Barack Obama has been elected the president of the United States, the debate of reparations for slavery can finally be put to rest.

More than 40 acres and a mule, Obama's presidency stamps the 150 year-old debt with interest paid in full.

No longer can America be held… Read full post »

Election Day Idiots

My Election Day nightmare started early. Too early actually, and at the wrong place and the wrong time.

The wrong time was while I was about to take my first sip of coffee at my favorite watering hole.

"Say, Ron. Did you vote? I did.  See?" the proud "I Voted" sticker wearer… Read full post »

Kids still say the damndest things

I was conducting a listening session with a group of 6-10 year olds. The prize was extra time in the gym for the first person to correctly answer five questions.

Wife: "Hi, did you go vote yet?"

Me: "Yes. And No."

Wife: "What do you mean, yes and no?"

"Let me tell all y'all something. I ain't no nigger, my kids are. Now, one of y'all better light my cigarette and bring me an ashtray."

It's nothing personal. Nothing against the man or his politics. It's not even because my wife and sister adore him so much that I hope Obama loses to McCain.

It's not his politics for them, either, they just think he is so damn cute.
