Is it just our American arrogance that leads us to believe that even though our ancestors all came from different countries, we can all live together peacefully? Even today we speak different languages and live in separate communities like China Town, Harlam, Little Havana, Korea Town, Little India, Southie, etc. Hey maybe that’s why John Lennon called his song “Imagine” rather than “Reality,” because so far it ain’t working out.
We’ve spent three hundred years trying to fix the problem between blacks and whites but to no avail. In fact, as I write this, black people are marching all over America protesting police brutality which of course is attracting the rioters and looters. (see above)
How long will it be until the Irish point out that they were the first slaves in America so they need to be compensated, or the Chinese saying, “Hey America without our slave labor, you’d have no railroads?
When will the Jews remind us that they weren’t welcomed in America and are still discriminated against to this day? No doubt the Japanese will bring up the fact that they were held against their will in internment camps during WWII.
With all that’s going on, when do you suppose that the Mexican people, illegal or not, will become upset and begin their own protests?
All I know is that being a former Canadian, America has been very good to me but if I don’t come up with something to be pissed about soon, they’re gonna run out of free money.
Why did they take down the signs reading, “Looters Will Be Shot?” They worked well.
When the voice inside you claims that you’re not capable of doing something, just do it if only to silence the voice.
Do you ever get the feeling that it’s the rich on the left doing battle with the rich on the right and we’re the ants in the middle?
You become the people you hang with.
Hey radio, there’s no money in narrowcasting, ya gotta figure out how to get it wider or die.
I spent many hours coaching the gifted and creative on air people during my career, so I had little time for Dee-Jays.
Do protesters and looters have to be politically correct or is that just us?
The good news is because of social media; we no longer have to wait on the networks to tell us what’s happening. However, the bad news is, most of it’s not true.
In movies, black folks and women are always smarter than all the white guys. In real life, not so much.
Those who hide in the past have no future.
Speaking of the past, as successful as KVIL in Dallas was, I don’t think she ever won an award.
I remember when everybody had health benefits and some even had profit sharing. However, that was when the only people who worked part-time were high school students.
Then for some reason, the government, Republicans and Democrats alike thought that executives needed to make more money. Now, most of America works part-time and has no benefits.
Are you as tired as I am of receiving those, “This is not a check,” checks?
Not all cops are bad cops, but if the good ones continue to cover up those who are bad, we’ll be forced to treat them all badly.
If it’s only the rich who get richer, there will be some consequences. Oh, and we’ve got them outnumbered.
I think what’s ruining America are the one-percenters and all the politicians they own. They buy up companies then send all the jobs overseas. Oh, and their profit never goes into circulation because it’s hidden in offshore accounts and tax-free bonds
The only reason the government supposedly gives them tax breaks is so they’ll employ more people. However, what they do instead is to eliminate jobs.
Do I have this right, there are no Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Arabs, Latinos, Blacks, Native Americans, or Women who are racist, just white males?
No matter how many times you fail, you only have to succeed once to be a winner.
Sometimes what’s legal and what’s right ain’t the same.
Debate often but decide once
My good friend, Tim Moore, wrote, “Failure isn’t final, but fear might be.”
It’s tough to measure “Almost.”
We only hear what we wanna hear and we only see what we expect to see.
All things made by hand are not better, sometimes it was just the only option.
I think Police Unions are done, somebody has to pay for what’s going on.
Oh, lord. Jack McSorley was one of the grouchiest curmudgeons I’ve ever met. Such a sourpuss. Doing business with him was hellish. (I Left My Heart In SFO)
Geo: Wow, Pixie, this is the first time I’ve heard a disparaging word about Jack. Are you sure you’re not confusing him with the Captain of the Edmund Fitzgerald?
Al Mair: I spelled Winestein wrong. This is the infamous Harvey of Hollywood fame. (Out Of The Box)
Geo: One wouldn’t want to be confused with him, Al.
Doug Thompson: Geo wrote: Speaking of arrogance, what the hell are the French so arrogant about, they haven’t done anything memorable for several hundred years.
Isn’t inventing the guillotine and French fries enough George? Course both were invented more than 200 years ago….so they have fallen down in the inventing things department. (Out Of The Box)
Geo: Hell they can’t even get that right, Dougie, they think they’re called, Pommes Frites. F**king French! 🙂
Jed Duvall: So would you classify Beethoven, Bach, Handel, and Mozart as Level Seven? (Hey Who Dat?)
Geo: Perhaps the Penthouse, Jed.
