Black dream team

politicos

I RECENTLY wrote a critical list of Barry Obama’s presidency. When it appeared on Facebook, not surprisingly, one of the reactions, the most overused and tiresome, from a Barry fan was that I am a racist.

Yawn.

It came, not surprisingly, from a member of the U.S. media (an adopted Texan who should know better*) and we know how fond most of those media people are of their faux-black president.

The individual in question did not come right out and call me a racist. He was a tad more subtle, saying that I obviously would not be happy till I saw a white president. In other words, it’s all about race, and criticism of Obama is always racism. There was some pointing at Bush, their fall-back defense. Dubya done it!

No doubt there are some people who don’t like Barry because they think the mulatto** is black. Most criticism of the failed presidency, however, is based on performance. Certainly, mine is. The melatonin content of the president is of no concern whatsoever.

To illustrate: Here is my black dream team for the White House.

President: Dr. Ben Carson.

Chief adviser: Thomas Sowell.

Vice President: Allan Keyes.

Secretary of Defense: Allen West.

Secretary of Commerce: Herman Cain.

Secretary of State: Condoleezza Rice.

Secretary of the Treasury: Tim Scott.

Secretary of Health and Human Services: Mia Love.

Secretary of Labor: J.C. Watts.

Environmental Protection: Angela McGlowan.

Department of Education: Joseph C. Phillips.

Housing and Urban Development: Lynn Swann.

Homeland Security: Crystal Wright.

I could go on, but you get the point. This issue is political belief, not skin tone. All of the above favor limited government, low taxes, a strong military, liberty, capitalism, individual responsibility, etc.

They would be a dream team, and black faces all. God bless ’em!

(Note: If Rick Perry had a much better tan, I would have put him into the vice presidential slot and moved Allan Keyes elsewhere. Keyes — a repeated presidential hopeful — is a little wacky, which is why I tagged him for VP. The smirking Biden has set a new, zany tone for that do-nothing post.)

Hooray, Texas!

Were I to return to the United States of America, which I will never do, it would be straight to the heart of Texas.

ChristmasTaxes are low. The economy is the best in the nation. (Bulletin to Obama: The two are connected.) And Rick Perry is governor, plus there are lots of sensible, down-to-earth people in the state legislature as this story illustrates.

The governor has signed legislation to protect Christmas and other religious holidays in public schools from legal attacks by atheist thugs.

Perry correctly pointed out that religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion, something the collectivist, joyless, ham-fisted speech police, who abound in America’s effete, elitist neighborhoods, will not grasp.

MenorahSo, in Texas now, you can say Merry Christmas in schools, and nobody can say you cannot. You can also say Happy Hanukkah, Hare Krishna, Praise Allah and any other dang religious thing you wish, and this is how the Goddess wants it.

Let us hope that other states will follow the sage lead of Texas and push back against the tiny minority of sour-faced totalitarians who have grabbed far too much power* in what was once the greatest nation on earth.

“It’s a shame that a bill like this one I’m signing today is even required, but I’m glad we’re standing up for religious freedom in this state.”

— Gov. Rick Perry
