Separated at birth.

Admit it. You want a white Republican president again.
Now before you start feeling like you’re a racist, understand you are not.

Wanting a white Republican president doesn’t make you racist, it just makes you American.

So begins an amazing piece written by a Black man, Kevin Jackson, a "... highly sought national speaker [who] has graced the stage with luminaries as Sarah Palin, Neal Boortz, Herman Cain, Judge Napolitano, and Andrew Breitbart, to name a few.

I've never heard of him before, but apparently Mr. Jackson,"is a regular on the Glenn Beck show, writes his almost daily blog, is a contributing writer to BigGovernment, American Thinker, and his work has been featured in Townhall magazine."

Television Station KFYR-TV in Fargo, North Dakota, reports that the North Dakota Senate has passed Bill 2125, which would require caretakers to report that he or she has discovered that a child is missing, or has died.  The bill would require that the caretaker report the matter to the police within 24 hours if the child is younger than 13.  If the child's age is between 13 and 17 years, the caretaker would have to report the matter within 48 hours.  In the case of a child's death, the caretaker would have to make a report within two hours.

The bill was inspired by the Caylee Anthony case.  Caylee was the Florida child who was missing for 31 days before her mother reported her disappearance to the authorities.

One would think that such a proposal would be non-controversial.  Not so.

Word Play

by Rashaverak

The English language is amazing.  It's also very difficult to learn in adulthood.  So many rules, and so many exceptions to those rules!

But mastering the language is well worth it.  In addition to mastery of English providing career opportunities, one can have great fun with words.

More below the orange cumulo-nimbus!

Soon to be Back In The Catbird Seat?

by Rashaverak

I do not expect Mitt Romney to be elected.  But if he is, what will that portend with respect to the administration of governmental functions?  It will be government of the lobbyists, by the lobbyists, for their former (and, in the future, once-again) clients.

The lobbyists are licking their beaks in anticipation.

A reporter who works for Tucker Carlson's Dailer Caller heckled President Obama during his session with the press concerning his decision to suspend the deportations of undocumented young residents.

From time to time, I get emails from a former client, now retired, concerning political topics.  The former client, let's call him Bill, is a moderate Republican and a reasonable fellow.  (Yes, Virginia, there are still a few of them around).

Many of the emails that Bill sends me are over-the-top things that he gets from people he knows.  He sends them to me mainly to get my take on their contents.

Below the Orange Cumulus is the latest one, and my response.
