“…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.
“…”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
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 Pink Flamingo is thinking about drawing a blank circle with a Grocho mask to represent Mohammad. Then again maybe a Kilroy might be good. I’ll come up with something that will be just as respectful as the followers of extreme Islam were on September 11, 2001.
The more people who get involved the greater the impact. Heck, they can’t kill us all, can they? I think it is a wonderful idea, which should have been done years ago!

The following is an excerpt (I hope) from a book I am writing.
A decade ago one, on January 14, 2000, I experienced one of the worst moments of my life. Not only did the person I planned to marry do everything he could to hurt me, in the process he destroyed my sense of well-being and who I am.
January is a rough month. It seems to me that bad things just plain old happen in January. Wyatt Earp died in January – 1929. The space shuttle Challenger exploded in January – 1986. The Apollo 1 fire killed 3 astronauts – 1967. The space shuttle Columbia broke up in re-entry (okay it was February 1) – 2003. The worst baseball trades happen in January. It is cold. You have all those bills to pay. And life is generally miserable.
January, 2000 brought one of the worst experiences of my life. It also brought one of the most remarkable and spiritually awakening moments of my life. I learned the power of praise when the big things in life are bad.
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 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.
As a fan of the original version of “V” I was prepared not to like the new ABC series.
I was wrong.
I love the hope, change, peace, universal health care …. and complete annihilation of the human race.
I don’t know about you, but I find it rather humorous, and highly ironic that an ABC series, that is a take-off on the charisma of Obama, debuts the night Obama gets skunked at the polls.
Is the bloom off the rose?
They have the most powerful weapon – “devotion” – just what managed to get hope/change elected.
What about “Anna’s” resemblance to The One (reptilian)?
Of course and alien presence would fully explain the Dems in 2008. What happened just wasn’t normal. Then again The Pink Flamingo could simply be giving in to alien invasion hysteria.
The Pink Flamingo has mentioned in the past her interest in science fiction as social and political commentary. On the Science Fiction Channel we’re now seeing our military as a combination of John Wayne, James Bond, Wyatt Earp, James T. Kirk, and G. I. Joe. If you look at those two factors, alone, Obama is in very serious trouble, sociologically.
To quote another famous alien, “Fascinating.”
Or, to put it more succenctly, after Christie pulled out a win in New Jersey, and the news that there is going to be massive Dem party defection in Texas, The Pink Flamingo is predicting you can stick a fork in Obama. He’s done. (I hope). With a lot of luck, prayer, and a few conservatives being put in their place, the GOP may be in a position to pull off a 1994 in a year. In 1994 it all began in Virginia. The whole thing is the movement of independents to the GOP. Please take note that these independents are not all that conservative, either.
“…V, an ambitious remake of a 1980s NBC show, in many respects stays close to the original’s story line. What has changed — radically — is the political subtext. Kenneth Johnson, who wrote and directed the 1983 miniseries (it spawned a sequel and then a regular network series over the next two years), took his inspiration from a 1935 Sinclair Lewis novel called It Can’t Happen Here that depicted an imaginary fascist takeover of the United States. The aliens in the original V were patterned after Nazis, and, just in case anyone missed the point, an elderly Jewish character who was a Holocaust survivor periodically hammered on the similarities.
But ABC’s series takes aim not at a German dictator from the misty past but a sitting — and popular — U.S. president. From the fawning reaction of the news media (sample press-conference question to V leader Anna: “Is there such a thing as an ugly visitor?”) to the recruiting of human supporters into an alien front group that could easily be mistaken for “community organizing,” the parallels to Obama are unmistakable.
