Hey, Moochelle, guess what I'm thinking?    :whistle:

I believe this is simply a request to get people in our sphere-of-influence, to go forward and not fall back on tendencies we've had since our own childhood.

To me, it's no different than asking your parents to "get with it" and not publicly show disdain or opposition to the American Negro that had to use separate restrooms and lunch counters...or to sit in the back of the bus.

Wake me up when they ask you to email/notify the Department of Homeland Security about it, instead of "getting in their face", as Barry used to say.

Until then....yawn.

Thank you!

You're most welcome, Mach!

Soon as I read the headline...knew it was simply an attempt to incite certain people into misinterpreting her remark/intent.

Don't get me wrong....I hate everything she stands for when it comes to Socialism vs. Free Market Capitalism.   But this isn't even close.

Shame on me! I should know better than to rely on excerpts - I'm not a particular fan of that speech, but I should have read it before I reacted.  :nometalk:

Despite her speech, she and her husband have chosen to segregate their daughters, not on race,  but on wealth.  I understand the need protect them from all the lunatics in the world but, like their father, they aren't ever going to step foot in city schools.  She says its all about race, which is hogwash.  The wealth of the Obamas has increased some like 465% since has been in office and no one in their right mind is going to send their kids to the cash for clunkers schools when they can afford Lincoln Continentals.  So for her to criticize people for doing the same as she is just disingenuous.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
