Perhaps We Need More Ethinc Studies, Not Less

Perhaps We Need More Ethinc Studies, Not Less
May 19, 2010

“…While I have supported black studies programs and as a trustee, one must really ask whether the demand for a completely autonomous is not in reality a request for sanctuary from the rigors of the institution, a sanctuary from the normal standards? If that is what it is then what in reality, will these students have when they leave the institution, what will they have learned, and will they be able to compete in the outside world. On the other hand, it is possible that you can justify a black studies program on its symbolic value alone. But an all black studies department would not be useful. What we really should do is get some whites into the black studies department to learn something about black people. …” Ronald Reagan!

There are very few times when I disagree with Michael Medved. This is one of them. The other day he was discussing ethnic studies. Rightly he does not actually approve of them. Neither do I in their current form, but the Pink Flamingo thinks one of the very real problems we are facing as a nation is the fact that we Americans have become so insular that we expect cultures to adapt to us. We need not learn anything about others. Once upon a time it was called “The Ugly American”. Today we call it conservative.

Lindsey Graham on Democrat Grandstanding on Immigration

Lindsey Graham on Democrat Grandstanding on Immigration
April 28, 2010

“…”To the Hispanic community – if you bring a bill up now, it’s going to go down,” Graham said after the hearing. “You won’t get 40 votes because nobody can go back home and justify that the system is fixed when we know it’s not.”…” Lindsey Graham

Once again Lindsey has put himself into the cross-hairs, this time with the Dems, for simply being Lindsey and doing what is right.

Barack Obama is attempting (as usual) to subdivide the country along racial lines, trying to ratchet up Hispanic anger against the GOP to get votes in November.

The High Cost of Honor and Greatness

The High Cost of Honor and Greatness
December 2, 2009

Because it is The Pink Flamingo’s birthday, I am going to indulge myself. The other night I was watching Tombstone. (Yea, this is yet another “Why I love Wyatt Earp…”). Even having watched the movie so many times, something struck me that I’d not noticed.

The perfect definition of honor:

When a person of honor does something that requires personal strength and character, something difficult that the average person would shrink from doing, that person is usually criticized. Those of lesser character would like nothing better than to swoop in and destroy. The most perfect example of this The Pink Flamingo knows is the life of Wyatt Earp.

Wyatt Earp, 1923Wyatt Earp basically gave up his entire future to do what was right. This 1923 photo is my favorite. It shows a man, brave, courageous, and bold – one unafraid, unflinching, and was willing to face the consequences.

Wyatt Earp and George W. Bush

Wyatt Earp and George W. Bush
October 26, 2009

Today is the 128th Anniversary of the Shootout at the OK Corral. After 30 seconds of shooting, three men – Billy Clanton, Frank & Tom McLaury were either dead or dying. Ike Clanton had fled, and three others – Virgil & Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday were injured. Only Wyatt Earp was uninjured. Thus was born legend and the American character was fully defined.

We are a nation of Wyatt Earps. “It all ends now!” Stand up and fight for what is right no matter what the personal cost. We see it again and again in the history of this country. Fact is, once upon a time a Wyatt Earp clone resided in the Oval Office.

Right is right and wrong is wrong. A President of the United States of America should know the difference and should know how to lead. Actions speak louder than words read from a teleprompter.

2009-10-22

We should all have the courage of a Wyatt Earp or a George W. Bush.

“…I took office at a time when many around the world had come to view America with skepticism and distrust. A part of this was due to misperceptions and misinformation about my country. Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies and a belief on, on certain critical issues, America had acted unilaterally without regard for the interests of others.

And this is has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism which, too often, has served as an excuse for collective inaction….” Barack Obama

Years ago when I started researching the life of Wyatt Earp, I came across two different men. The Wyatt Earp of Stuart Lake’s Frontier Marshal is a cross between Superman, The Lone Ranger, and Abraham Lincoln. The Wyatt Earp of Frank Waters’ The Earp Brothers of Tombstone is a cruel, vindictive, psychopathic monster.
