No, this isn't about the "PC" making the round on the talk shows about whether the military was being too "politically correct" in the case of Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged Ft. Hood shooter, when they didn't reprimand him for bad performance on the job severely enough in the past because he was Muslim.
Come on. I just didn't imagine that 2009 would be the year of the neo-racist!
I probably should have thought a little more about it like Jimmy Carter did and realized that electing a black President, no matter how smart or qualified or handsome (yes, I said it..he's hot!), he symbolizes everything that racist whites have been fearing for years. The "takeover" of America by nonwhites who will then pay us back for years of not minding our own "stewardship" very well as the majority race.
And for eight years, the fires of hatred and fear were stoked daily by the Bush-Cheney-Rove machine to maintain control and power.
No, this PC is not about all that today.
It's the thing that's been on my mind the most lately. Protracted constipation...
Kidding...my prostate of course.
You know, for a little guy that I hardly ever used to think about, he's managed to make himself known in a big way over the past few weeks.
Come to think of it, he's kinda like the Ft. Hood shooter afterall, going from obscurity to the objection of all attention.
He's acted up in a bad, bad way and now he must die for it.
My quandry is whether I should give him the death penalthy by radioactive injection, where he dies a slow death over time, or we anesthetize him and cut him out within a matter of hours.
Or, I could put him on parole, and just actively surveille him with checkups every three months to check his behavior and a full on parole board meeting once a year. Maybe he won't act up again? Hmmm, but who's responsible for him if he breaks parole and really spreads the damage around?
Hard to really have straightforward feelings at this point. Lots (too much) of information but no definitive answers.
It feels a little like that sensation you get when you've just rounded the top of the rollercoaster and you're just about to go flying down.
