I love Louisiana, I really do, but lately the folks down in "The Boot" have been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
You Negroes have lost your natural minds since the bi-racial Kenyan got elected to the highest office in the land. Cutting in front of white folks in Wal- Mart? You Negroes must be crazy. And then, when the woman called you a "nigger", (which I guess was cool pre-Obama) you had the nerve to attack her. Is it any wonder that the poor woman, Sharon Hodges, reacted the way that she did:
"..The affidavit said witnesses heard Hodges yell a racial epithet at the woman and say, "You will respect your elders, especially since I'm white." The woman's daughter admitted to lunging at Hodges after she used a racial epithet. While the daughter was being restrained, witnesses observed Hodges spit in the woman's face, according to the affidavit."
Well, at least they arrested Ms. Hodges. Now that's change we can believe in.
Oh wait, before I go and watch my Phillies I have to blog about one more story. It's about my republican friends again. I tell you with these republicans it's like shooting fish in a barrel.
"Two South Carolina GOP chairmen declared in a letter to a local newspaper that criticism of Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is unfair because he is like a "Jew" who is "watching our nation's pennies."
The letter, published by South Carolina newspaper The Times and Democrat, was authored by James S. Ulmer Jr., who chairs the Orangeburg County GOP, and Edwin O. Merwin Jr., who chairs the Bamberg County GOP.
"There is a saying that the Jews who are wealthy got that way not by watching dollars, but instead by taking care of the pennies and the dollars taking care of themselves," the wrote. "By not using earmarks to fund projects for South Carolina and instead using actual bills, DeMint is watching our nation’s pennies and trying to preserve our country’s wealth and our economy’s viability to give all an opportunity to succeed."'
And they wrote this in a local newspaper? Okaaaay. And folks wonder why the South will never rise again.
I'm out. Go Phillies!
