You Might Be Considered Racist If...

You don't like basketball.

You lock your car doors while driving through the poor side of town.

You legally own a firearm; especially if you have a concealed-carry license.

You are conservative.

You follow fundamentalist Christian belief.

You have no sense of rhythm.

You don't like soul food, soul music, or did not watch Soul Train when you were a kid.

You think the Constitution is still relevant.

You don't like Oprah, Barack, Spike Lee, or Cam Newton, or that atheist black guy who plays God in the movies. What is his name?

You own a Confederate battle flag or engage in any southern heritage festivals or organizations.

You say something a minority member might find offensive.

You offend any minority for any reason.

You were born south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

And finally, you just might be considered racist for the simple fact that you're white.

The truth is, these days one can be tagged as a racist for saying practically anything. The use of racism as a viable political argument is no longer valid because in terms of debate, the social concept has become over-used. Racism has become the Left's new McCarthyism. The whole idea is a cash cow with the means for shaking down select industries or individuals.

A Super Bowl Date

Me and my date, Super Bowl Sunday 2016

It's all fun and games until a communist gets elected president.

Bullet Points

This is one of those bullet point blog posts many bloggers are so fond of. They're easier to put together than a full, well-thought essay but the advantage is the number of topics one can touch upon in a short space. So why am I doing bullet points today? A lack of time and an ongoing case of brain fog.

1. Super Bowl halftime festivities turns out to be a showcase for liberal policies. Has Beyonce's popularity reached an apex yet? We can only hope so. The bigger question is will Manning retire?

2. There are more orphans in Sub-Sahara Africa than children in Denmark, Norway, Canada, and Sweden combined. The wave of immigration sweeping across Europe is a result of years of poverty, war and social unrest in Africa. I think I heard where someone is blaming it all on climate change. That's a good one (jk). Anyhoo, the demographics of Europe are changing in regard to race and religion. Massive social unrest will follow for many years to come.

3. The first five—and especially the first three years—of a child’s life are the most important. They shape the brain’s organization, development, and functioning throughout life. By the way, if you're a parent and didn't know this, shame on you.

4. Most scientists argue that there is no evidence that playing classical music to babies increases the power of their mind. However, children who learn to play a musical instrument can develop their mental skills further than those who don’t learn a musical instrument.

5. The Smith and Wesson 500 is generally agreed to be the most powerful product handgun sold. A veritable hand cannon.

5. Infinity Burial Suit. If you like mushrooms and you have a sense of humor about dying, you'll love this.

6. One among the 14 new species of tarantulas, this is Aphonopelma johnnycashi, named after Johnny Cash, since it is all black and lives in the hills near Folsom Prison.

7. Map for the United Federation of Planets.

8. NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell has died. He was 85 years old. Mitchell was the sixth human to walk on the moon. He died Thursday night after a short illness exactly one day before the 45th anniversary of the day he landed in the Moon's hilly Fra Mauro region, with crewmate Alan Shepard. Mitchell was into the paranormal, and the possibility that ESP (psychic communication) could help humans stay connected out in space. Mitchell was characterized as "super bright" and "an intellectual."

9. It's too late to build a wall along the US border. It should have been built twenty years ago. So, what do we do now?

Leon Teague of Chicago, Illinois.
10. Why would anybody do this? A Chicago teenager has been arrested and accused of torturing an animal after he posted a video on Facebook showing him allegedly pouring boiling water on a cat. After the video went viral on Tuesday, February 2, Chicago Police arrested Leon Teague (18) charging him with a felony count of animal torture and a misdemeanor count of depicting animal cruelty (the video) Maybe somebody should light a fire under this dumbass and see how he likes it. Good news is the cat is alive, being cared for, and healing from its burns. Edit: I need to walk that last sentence back a bit. The cat has survived but runs away from those trying to assist. Cats have 9 lives, right?

11. Oh, one other thing, the stock market appears to be continuing its slow-motion crash this morning. If I were you, I would sell, sell, sell.

That's all I've got for now. Happy Monday, everybody!
