The LuLac Edition #2206, September 24th, 2012
Civil rights worker Viola Liuzzo, the Detroit housewife who just happened to be a heterosexual married white woman who gave her life in the Civil Right struggles of the 60s. Ask her family if this was just about black people.
This Week” yesterday on TV but caught it on the car radio when Mrs. LuLac had a craving for Pumpkin Nut pancakes and dragged me out of the house forsaking the NFL, and of course CSPAN. As we were traveling, I found the “This Week” show just in time to hear this crazy statement by Ann Coulter. It was regarding Civil Rights. This is what she said,
Coulter said that she thought that "civil rights are for blacks" because the U.S. has a "legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws."
She added, "We don't owe the homeless. We don't owe feminists. We don't owe women who are desirous of having abortions, or gays who want to get married to one another." She said that "much of the left...dropped the blacks after five minutes" to argue for "civil rights" for other groups of people.
Stephanopoulos interrupted Coulter asking, "Immigrant rights are not civil rights?" Coulter confirmed that she only thinks "civil rights are for blacks." Obviously she has no clue about what her sacred Constitution says about equality. Plus she hasn’t remembered the whites who helped the blacks attain equality. People marched and people died. To those “whites” who might have been homeless, might have been gay, might have been women, “civil rights” was not about black people but equality. As Forrest Gump is fond of saying, “Stupid is as stupid does”. Or as a friend of mine says, “You can’t fix stupid”.
Former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin and "Game Change" actress Julianne Moore.
The great HBO movie “Game Change” won a few Emmy’s last night. Emmy voters elected to heap praise on “Game Change” in the form of four Emmys winning the Outstanding Mini-series or Movie award.
Director Jay Roach and writer for Danny Strong also took home statuettes.
Based on the book of the same name by Mark Halperin, the movie purports to give an inside look at the decision within the McCain campaign in 2008 to bring aboard the former Alaska governor.
Actress Julianna Moore won the Best Actress award for her portrayal of Sarah Palin. She really annoyed conservatives when she said, “Wow, I feel so vindicated, because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down!” The Conservatives predictably were outraged but were okay when Rush Limbaugh called a woman involved in Democratic politics, Sandra Fluke, a slut. But hey, he was only being funny, right? Let’s see, “thumbs down” vs. calling a woman “a slut”. As Richard Dawson used to say, “Survey says………………..”
Never met the man but I was very sad when I heard Sam Agolino, former Wyoming Area School board member lost his battle with cancer. My friend and fellow blogger Joe Valenti doesn’t pick just any old person to be a good friend. We are sorry for Joe’s loss as well as those in political circles who called Sammy their friend.
