    Whenever you encounter this kind of intellectual stubbornness, there's usually a strong hidden emotion at it's root.

    These people aren't stupid, they're intellectually crippled by their racism.

    They can call PBO whatever they want to in private, but they live in a racially integrated society now. Their own children listen to hip-hop music. In public, their kind of racism has become totally uncool.

    So in the political arena, they call PBO a "Muslim". It's like a secret password that identifies you as a "member of the Klan club".

    They cling to their Bibles because their churches are the one institution that the law cannot desegregate. Professing doubt about evolution is another loyalty oath to their ethnic group.

    They hate big "government" because government enforces desegregation. They hate taxes because taxes are used to help "those people". They hate public education because the classrooms are integrated.

    What floors me is the capacity of there culture to infect succeeding generations with their prejudice.

    Have you noticed?
    Politicians who promise LESS government
    only deliver BAD government.

      do they love black people who play football for the Crimson Tide!!!  Roll Tide!  Yeah!

      I almost threw up in my mouth listening to the Paul Finebaum show on Sirius XM after Joe Paterno died.  Paul broadcasts from Alabama (God knows why?).  They were all making their cases for why their racist Bear was better than Paterno.

      Take away Alabama football, and these poor people really have nothing in their lives that is winning, at all.
