You want to have a conversation on race? Ok, great. I’ll go first.

If you want to be taken seriously on matters pertaining to race, then stop acting like race is all that matters, that it’s a pure, unqualified entitlement.

The Congressional Black Caucus? Not serious. Oh, I believe they really mean it when they propose the horrendous and idiotic misanthrope Sheila Jackson Lee as head of Homeland Security; by serious, though, I mean logical, thoughtful, wise. Logical, thoughtful, wise people do not support a policy of careerism for ignorant, shameless, foul-mouthed, bullying hacks. Why? Because, in the first place, ignorant, shameless, foul-mouthed, bullying hacks don’t deserve to have their careers boosted, and in the second, they will make you look bad.

Oh, sure, Lee is currently a ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security. She’s also a full-on narcissistic harpy who treats her own employees as if they were slaves in a buyer’s market. Imagine her trying to run one of the largest bureaucracies in government, employing the Pol Pot management style she currently employs among her congressional staffers. The whole department would probably defect, en masse, to Ecuador.

Of course, this may simply be the CBC’s strategy for getting rid of an embarrassing member. In which case: shrewd move guys!

In that case, I say "Bring her on!"

Sorry, Ecuador.

Yeah, after writing that, I kinda had the same vibe.

rinardman said...

BTW, Paco. Have you heard from the “Behavioral Insights Team”?

Sounds like the start of something...umm...sinister.

Paco said...

You8 never actually hear from them. You just feel...the nudge.

Paco said...

Plus, they mysteriously slip the number "8" into your written comments.

Cryptic. Very cryptic.

The CBC ceased being serious years ago, long long long before they clashed with Alan West. They are a bunch of racists and communists waving the "victim" flag while stomping their boots on the very people they claim to be protecting.

And why Ecuador, Paco? Don't forget those other refuges of tyrants, Venezuela and Peru.

Or even Iran. Maybe Paco Enterprises could set up a quota system? For cost-plus, of course.

In the current 'conversation', race does not mean all races. It doesn't mean several races. It may not primarily mean race at all. It means something else quite different and something very specific.

Race refers to the victims of decades liberal / progressive social policies who also happen to be black Americans.

Not included in 'race' are: middle & upper class blacks, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians, Pakistanis, Mexicans, Russians and all of the other races, cultures and ethnic groups that live and work together with each other quite successfully all across the US.

Race used as it is today is an inflammatory diversion from the horrible failure and human destruction caused by these social policies.

Those in charge of these policies are absolutely convinced they are right (plus it makes them rich and powerful), so failure must be the result of everyone and everything else.

It's a well known fact that Sheila Jackson Lee is bugnutz crazy. But she's black bugnutz crazy, and that's why her constituents keep reelecting her.

Oh, good. I was afraid it was because she's their best & brightest.
