We Must Stop the Black Man and his Liberal Friends from Stealing our Elections

Oh!... And we must not be afraid to vote white! (Whatever that means.)

Below is a video of Charles Sherrod, Sainte Shirley Sherrod's husband, speaking somewhere back in January. It's true that black liberals hate white conservatives, or racists as we say in Greentown, but I think they hate "Uncle Toms" even more... Though I can't be sure. Uncle Toms are blacks who are conservatives, and don't vote Black. (Whatever that means.)

Anyway, the title of this post is an example of racism. The following quote is not:

"We must stop the white man and his Uncle Toms from stealing our elections"
--Charles Sherrod, January 2010

So let the name-calling continue, and Malott's Blog will be here to sort it all out.

Racist... The New Communist?

or... Hating the People Who Disagree with You...

I do not hate people who disagree with me politically. Hating is always ugly, and often involves affixing labels to them like homophobe, xenophobe, communist, radical, racist... etc. The truth is, sometimes people honestly disagree on political and social issues.

When I was younger, people would often call left-leaning individuals a "communist." They would place McGovern, Mao, Humphrey, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, and politicians like Obama in the same category. Unfair? Absolutely!

But through the years the American citizen heard so many charges of "communist," that eventually the charge became a kind of joke.

I believe that today the charge of racism... calling someone a racist, has taken on a similar frivolous air.

The once influential NAACP has charged the constitution-respecting "tea partiers" with racism because they disagree politically with an African-American president. But there is no evidence of racism in the tea party movement. The Left cries "Wolf" when honest and good people grow weary of left-wing failure, and peacefully protest against the perpetrators.

Bigots and haters of all political stripes wield a critical sword, but eventually time and experience expose them... And the charge of "racist" has fallen into the same silly category as the once dreaded, and once effective, charge of "communist."

My Backyard

I love my backyard. This thing hangs near the foot of my hammock, and the only thing that disturbs my reading is when two little buddies of mine come to visit it.

I have two of these... I don't know what they are, but I have to mow around them. On the left in the first picture is the green pole of my clothes line, where at least once per year I hang my bedsheets to dry in the wind... makes them smell so good.

Below are some onions I recently harvested. They will dry for a few days and then be stored in my garage.

Garden Pictures
My greens are all gone, but my tomatoes, green beans, and corn are doing quite well. I have tomato plants that are waist high, and late tomato plants that are two inches tall.

I know... I need to get down on my knees and pull weeds from around my corn... But weeding is such a lonely business.
