First, the obligatory disclaimer: I am not a racist. I try my very best to appraise a person by their character rather than lack of, or abundance of, melanin. From a yout' I was aware of racial differences, and sussed out that the "n" word was A Bad Thing. I find the concepts of racism and bigotry to be abhorrent in the extreme. That the Son of God died for all races is a powerful argument against letting red yellow black or white be anything but window-dressing. I am making cultural observations, here.

Watching the Presidential campaign, I cannot see how many people won't wind up as racists. The in-your-face race-card playing of the Obamanites and Acornoids is breath-taking, and the tacit attitude of "if you disagree with Barack Hussein Obama, then it is because you hate black people" is hard to take. The Book of Proverbs teaches that if you want friends, you should be friendly. Honey vs. vinegar. The melanin-rich are not the sole holders of the attitude. James Carville makes noise about the possibility of...unrest:

But you stop and contemplate this country if Obama goes in and he has a consistent five point lead and loses the election, it would be very, very, very dramatic out there.

My personal worry is this: the danger here is the issue of self-fulfilling prophecy. If you behave as though everyone is a racist, then people might get sick of being judged for what they are not, and say Perdition take it! The rule of (an unredeemed) thumb is "bite if you're bitten". If even tolerant folks get bitten enough, they will nip back.

Just call me James Carville. Or call me a cab.

I said from the beginning, even implied in comments here, it might come down to election by terrorism.

Given Barack Osama's the background it would not surprise me at all to know the "Osama / Biteme" machine would be holding the threat of riots in Washington over someone's head.

They could be warehousing clubs, guns and ammo somewhere for all we know.

A "Rodney King" event on a national scale is a scary, and feasible thought with the acornites whipping it all up.

Between them and Diebold producing voting machines that can be hacked by even a PC novice with a camera memory card....

If you need me, I'll be under the bed.

No guns and ammo...they're BAD.

Oh, wait. They're only bad when bitter God-clingers have them.

"If you need me, I'll be under the bed"

[Zoidberg voice] "You're not coming on to me, are you?"

But remember... McCain is a Bushite. So there's the possibility of terror on BOTH sides of this election.

Race Riots or 9/11 pt. II?

Vince Lombardi said it about football, but it pertains highly to a U.S. Constitution not enforced by an armed citizenry:
"When you throw the rule book away, the game is over."
We've spent almost a century throwing the rule book away piece by piece, and looking the other way as long as Der Holy Mother Schtaat gives everybody a new gimme, or more fiat paper somehow.
Now the bill is coming.
With interest.
And we're already mortgaged out the wazoo to the communists funding our police-action or ter-r.

Not good, folks...No f***in' good at all, frankly!

Right on, Ted. Unfortunately, you're totally right.
