She's Latina Supreme

Bravo POTUS Obama, she's a great choice. She's more than qulified, she's a woman, she's Hispanic, she's a survivor. I think she is exactly what the Supreme Court needs, a fresh new thinker. Someone not from the majority. Someone young enough to effect the direction the high court takes for decades to come. She will be a voice for tens of millions of peoplewho sometime feel left out when it comes to people like themselves in high profile, high power positions. Not to mention that she will be a top notch Supreme Court Justice, in my opinion. The high court, indeed all our public policiy organizations need to look like America.

Of course there will always be some Americans who will never be pleased with anyone the POTUS nominates. These people will only be pleased with Justices that see the world the way they see it. That has lived the life the they have lived. People like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich, who calls her a racist. Just think of Limbaugh's nerve, calling Judge Sotomayor, or anyone for that matter a racist. Limbaugh and his "halfican-American",(his decription of Americans with one black parent and one white parent, guess only white parent is the American half), or his one hit wonder race baiting melody, "Barack the magic negro". Then there's Glen Beck, he called her a "chick lady". I have to agree with him halfway there. She's no doubt a "lady". As for the "chick", I no doubt think Beck's a "Bo-Chick"(old term used in my family meaning a "wimp"). Proof of him being a bo-chick; his appearance with the ladies on the View. Beck lied behind their backs about the train ride he, Whoopie and Barbara took together to the White House Corespondent Dinner. When Beck was stupid enough to guest on the View, he completely "bo-chicked" out when they called him out on his lies face to face. .

Our senator here in Alabama, Jeff Sessions. Sen. Sessions says he doesn't understand why the POTUS would want an empathic Justice on tne High Court. Of course if a man has no empathy he wouldn't understand empathy. And to look at Jeff Sessions it's easy to see he's a man with little, if any compassion. Sessions always look as if he has just left a kkk rally. He reminds me of one those white guys I in see in old pictures gleeing proudly at a body that's been lynched. Sessions and kkk super hero Sam Bowers could pass for brothers.

Karl Rove says Judge Sotomayor doesn't have the intellect to sit on the Supreme Court. Ha! Karl Rove, the man who is the main reason George W. Bush got elected POTUS. Enough said on how good Rove is at judging a person's intelligence. How dumb is Rove to think that Bush has the intellect to lead a backyard bar-b-que, let alone the largest most powerful nation on earth, The United States. The country thanks you Rove.

And the there's my favorite white supremacist Pat Buchanan. Master of the republican party's southern strategy. Old Pat's on tv everyday crying about the plight of the poor deprived, discriminated against, underprivileged white American male due to minorities having equal opportunities. Buchanan says judge Sotomayor is an affirmative action choice. That POTUS Obama only picked her because she is Hispanic. Probably true, but so what. The only reason Buchanan is on tv today is because he was an affirmative action pick years ago. In other words he got his job as Nixon's speechwriter back when because he's white. Nixon needed a top notch race baiter, Nixon hired Pat Buchanan for the job. Richard Nixon knew how to pick the right men for the particular unsavory tasks he needed to have done.

As I already said these people would be against any nominee that the POTUS put up. But the idea of this Porto Rica woman being a Supreme seems to scare them more sillier than already are. I want to know why it scares them so. Nothing will change for them. They will still be way overpaid propagandist. Even if they never made another penny, they are set for the rest of their lives, in fact their great-great-great grand kids will have no money worries. Maybe it's the fact that they are slowily losing power. I'm sure these loud mouths never imagined the day would come that a black man would be POTUS, and would nominate an Hispanic woman to sit as a Supreme Court Justice. Well to all above mentioned men, I say to you this is progress. Get used to it, and get over it.

The Deeds Of The Dads, U.S., Mexican Drug Mayhem

The violence in Mexico's drug trade has gotten down right medieval. The criminals that are now in charge of medicating the U.S and indeed the world, spare no depravity in getting their macabre message across to anyone who has the audacity to try and stop them. The Mexican drug thugs that are now terrorizing their country have no boundaries as to what they will do(I use the word thugs here loosely, for the thugs here in the U.S. do have some limits, most just shoot and run to be caught soon after, then they cry). There's no violence to horrible or bizarre for these bloodthirsty Mexican murderers. Hell, they seem very proud of their hobbies, reeking death sorrow all over Mexico.

Mexico is a very poor country, which boarders a very rich country, though the riches here are mainly in the hands of the majority, for now. The United States was designed form the time it was taken away from the indigenous people to enrich its and the world's white citizens. The brown skin country of Mexico, our southern neighbor, where the indigenous people there were and still are used to make life easy and richer for the world's fairest occupants. Unlike our northern neighbor Anglo Canada, which is viewed as an equal partner, and is treated as such. Mexico is viewed as America's needy underling, and is treated as such.

Most of Mexico's working citizens work long days all week at hard laborious backbreaking jobs. Jobs that pay them as indentured servants. They live in shacks, and have to get water out of holes in the ground, holes that is often shared by entire communities. The chosen few in Mexico that are spared this rough existence are the rich, powerful, and sometime corrupt that hold almost all of the wealth in Mexico. These conditions kept and keeps Mexico a poor country. And even though Mexico is a country rich in resources, these resources are far out of the reach of it's poor citizens. Save one, the illegal drugs that the north feinds for.

Fueled by the world's, mainly the U.S.'s insatiable appetite for illegal drugs, Mexico's ordinary dirt poor people have found their resource out of crushing poverty. And because their only export is illegal, it breeds casual violence, and some people in Mexico spare no horror in going for the profits. Five human heads in coolers is the least result of the violence from Mexico's inner war for control of it's easiest(anyone can do it) and most profitable export(any poor peasant can become rich, if allowed to live that is).

Because Mexico is the United States broader neighbor, it's drug war is our drug war. The severed heads in the coolers were found near El Paso Texas. The extreme mob violence that the Mexican drug trade has bred affects our entire country. From our biggest cities to the smallest towns(my hometown is less 3,000 people, yet meth and crack are highly craved there). The U.S is flooded with the much demanded drugs that come in from Mexico. Though cocaine and marijuana has in the past been our main drug imports from Mexico, now heroin, methamphetamine, prescription pain killers, and God knows what other mind busting stuff is coming here from that country.

Dire poverty will make people to do just about anything to to better their sub-standard living existance. And if people are of the mindset that life is cheap, combined with the cold bloodiness it takes to chop off peoples heads, then my fellow Americans we got big problems. Not the say anything of the dependency the United States has for the addictive drugs that feeds the callousness of the whole morbid mess.

The deeds of the dads, all Anglo power, all the time has turned America's children into sniffling dope feinds who sell their daughters to nasty drug dealers for a fix of crack, meth, heroin , or who knows, maybe even pot. The deeds of the dads has turned good honest people who had good lives into drugged out criminals who committee unspeakable crimes for one more hit of whatever drug that is needed for them to feel normal for a while. The sins of the fathers. I wonder if the quest for control over the worlds resources is worth the heartbreak and hopelessness that are now being visited on so many of their children.
