We’re Cruisin’

April ends with birthdays and pollen,

God Bless You. 

Things got heated,

I broke my vow,

so the A/C is on. 

But the sun is out before six,

 and the Suns were out before May.

That’s Amare.

now Legoland,

and the PCH.

And then,

A1A

ahhhhh

we’re cruisin’

Thought for the Day

One of Ghandi’s most illuminating observations was that,

“there is more to life than increasing its speed”.

Name That Speaker

I stumbled on some caustic quotes that just have to be addressed. As President Bush puts it, just “who’s with us and who’s against us?”

We simply have to rid ourselves of those that won’t tow the party line, right?

This guy should get creamed by those moral stalwarts at Fox; O’Reilly, Hannity and Greta, after spewing such anti-American speech. Check it out…

“I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed… .without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today – my own government.”

Can you guess the speaker?

Jeremiah Wright from his pulpit? nope.

Louis Farrakhan addressing Al Queda? wrong again.

Malcolm X at a Black Panther rally? sorry.

Surprise. It was a no-doubt frustrated, passionate, desperate Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

It should go without saying that he cared deeply for the oppressed, he was willing to take on all injustice, and he wasn’t afraid to ruffle the status quo….

Like he did in this next quote, talking about those that loved the goal, but not the method of action toward change….in other words, perhaps apathy and the status quo were among his most difficult hurdles…

“I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Council or the Ku Klux Klan, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for someone else’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time.”
