I read in the paper today that Kwanzaa is 50 years old. When you think about it that’s an amazing accomplishment. Kwanzaa is a totally made up holiday. There was no tradition upon which it was built. Somebody just decided that black people needed their own holiday, because, I suppose, celebrating the birth of the Son of the Living God was just not significant enough. So somebody came up with a fake holiday called Kwanzaa. This word is purported to mean something like “first fruits” in an African language. But, as I said, it’s all fake. And it has managed to survive for 50 years. That is amazing.
Thinking about it I was moved to consider a similar holiday for white people. The more I thought about it the better I liked the idea. I even came up with a name for the holiday. I’m calling it “Krakeranzaa.” That comes from mid-evil Polish meaning “Nutty white people.” This holiday espouses three principles – self reliance, self defense and self delusion. Now, even though this is a holiday for white people I want to be as diverse as possible. I’m sure all of you are aware that some people who consider themselves black are in fact partly white. The simple case is someone who has one white parent and one black parent. In that case the child is actually only half black even though they may legally consider themselves as a black person. If there are some people of mixed race who are partly white, I think that they should be allowed, if they desire, to consider themselves to be white and observe our new white holiday Krakeranzaa. However, it would not be right for those people to celebrate both Krakeranzaa and Kwanzaa. One or the other, but not both. Only seems fair.
There is another case for diversity. There was also the case of George Zimmerman who was described by our ever authoritative media as a “white Hispanic.” To be honest I don’t know what other kinds of Hispanics may exist. I didn’t know about white Hispanics existing until Zimmerman became the target of the lame-stream media. Are there black Hispanics? Asian Hispanics? In any case I think anyone who would be tagged by the media as a white Hispanic should be welcome to join in celebrating Krakeranzaa. And if there are any folks out there who would come under the media banner of “white Asians” they too should be welcome at any Krakeranzaa celebration.
So I’m calling on all you so-called “white” people out there to join in the annual celebration of Krakeranzaa during January 20 through January 23. Each of the first three nights we light one of the “self” candles and meditate on their true meaning and on the fourth day we blow out the candles. We bundle the candles together with a purple ribbon and say a short personalized benediction over them and then we bury them in the back yard. If you are all faithful Krakeranzaa may last 50 years, too. Or is Krakeranzaa too politically incorrect for your taste? How about it?
NBC is at it again. NBC, the other alphabet networks, the Obama administration’s spokespersons and the President himself have all been demonstrated many, many times to have “misinformed” the public. NBC’s big,explosive political story today is that CIA “sources” (unnamed sources you will note) are certain Russian intelligence services, directed personally by Putin, hacked the DNC to expose the DNC’s inner workings. Meanwhile, Julian Assange, who, whatever you may think of his avocation, has never, ever, ever been demonstrated to have been incorrect in the materials he has released, says that he did NOT receive the DNC material from the Russians. Associates of Julian say that the material was received from a disaffected DNC insider.
Of course, you would never know from Matt Liar’s presentation of the story that Assange has disputed the CIA claim. You can be certain, though, if Hillary had won and the RNC had been the one hacked, Matt Liar would have presented the side of the story most favorable to Hillary. Seems rather obvious that the polls that have revealed that the public is aware of the media’s bias have not had any influence on NBC’s news division.
I think it’s about time for me go on a rant. It’s overdue and, at least this time, needed. One of the things I hate about liberals – notice I didn’t say I hate liberals (Jesus is very strict about that) – is that they claim to have, unlike conservatives, compassion, sympathy and empathy (“Ah feel your pain”) for the needy. The fact is that Charlie Brown (of “Peanuts fame”) captured the true heart of liberals when he said, “I love mankind. It’s people I can’t stand.”
My sister and I assist a disabled woman. She’s had a hard life. She has advanced Cerebral Palsy. She can barely speak. Naturally, early in her school years she was classified as retarded and spent her school years in “Special Ed” despite the fact that anyone patient enough to communicate with her knows she is of at least average intelligence. When she was 3 her step-mother broke both of her legs and they were not treated. In her 30’s several operations unsuccessfully attempted to correct some of the problems causing excruciating pain in her legs. Now, between that and her CP she requires help just to get from her wheel chair into bed. Her left arm is curled into a permanent twist and is totally useless. Her right arm is not much better. She can use her thumb and index finger like pincers and is amazingly adept at accomplishing tasks in daily life. The contortion of her spine forces her to see most of the world as if she were lying on her side. If this woman does not qualify as totally disabled I don’t know who could.
Yet our gummamint has periodically seen fit to withdraw her medicaid benefits and require her to prove that she is still disabled. Social Security gives her a grand total of a little over $700 a month. Over the years she has had food stamps, but not on a regular basis. I don’t know the reasons why she has not had them permanently, but recently a social worker from “Meals on Wheels” got them started again. All of this irritates me no end. But it’s not the icing on the irritation cake.
On December 1st or 2nd I came home to a message on my phone that said this woman had an appointment at the local Social Security office on December 12th at 8 AM. When we make appointments for her we try to make them for late morning or afternoon because it takes several hours to get her ready. At great inconvenience to her, my sister and myself we managed to get her there without a minute to spare. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. After three hours – three hours – they took her in for her appointment. And then, after 15 minutes, she was done. After we got her loaded into my van she asked to get something to eat since she didn’t have time for breakfast. While my sister went in to the nearby Wendy’s to get some food, I asked her what the appointment was all about. I can’t communicate with her as well as my sister so it took several minutes to decipher her response. Turns out they wanted her to come to their office to prove she was still alive. Outside I was calm, but inside I exploded. I asked her if the woman seemed disappointed that she was still alive. She laughed and said, “Yes.” I said, “Well, I’m sure I won’t still be around, but I hope you live long enough to run your wheelchair back and forth on that woman’s grave.”
Liberals! If my little story bothers you, just consider that the VA is much worse. If only we could be illegal aliens…
To all you pinheads out there who have believed the liberal scat that torture does not work, I suggest you read “The Secret War” by Sir Max Hastings. You’ll also find out that the fall of the Soviet Union and the opening of some of its files show conclusively that Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs were every bit as guilty as charged. Until those files opened up we’d have to endure periodic pieces from the liberal media making claims that they were falsely charged. No longer. Now the best they can do is claim Ethel Rosenberg should not have been given a death sentence because she just helped her husband a little. The claim is that the government used the threat of her death sentence to try to get Julius to spill on his spy network. They don’t point out that her loving husband chose to let her die rather than spill what he knew or that she could have spilled what she did know herself. In addition, you’ll learn how leftists at the very highest levels of the U.S. gummamint allowed the secret of the atomic bomb to be fed to the Soviets, saving them years of research.
