Who could have thought it possible that I could agree with John Kerry, Kanye West, and Luis Farrakhan had to say. But it happened. Of course, I don’t agree with everything this guys espouse, but like a broken clock, they are right twice each day.
In a speech to about 10,000 followers of the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan called on blacks nationwide to curb economic disparities by cutting back on excessive spending, pooling resources, and investing in land. . . .” This is great advice. Financial self-discipline is a needed step to prosperity when coupled with deferred gratification and the rejection of envy and blame shifting.
He went on to offer this sage advice: “Even though one of our own has reached the highest pinnacle of the American political system, his presence has not, cannot and will not solve our problems.” Farrakhan was speaking of President Obama. This message needs to get out far and wide in the black community. A lot of liberal whites need to hear it as well.
Liberalism = dependency.
This brings me to Kanye West. West is a musician, film director, and fashion designer. He is becoming best known for his sexual exploits with attention-grabbing, always running to the spotlight wherever it shines, Kim Kardashian. If he doesn’t watch it, his libido is going to mess with hi astute business acumen.
At a performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo last week, the Chicago-born rapper at one point said, “I don’t give a F**k what the president’s got to say.” The audience roared its approval.
While I don’t agree with how West said it, I’m thankful that a number of blacks are tired of living on the liberal plantation and are willing to say it out loud.
West is something of a hypocrite because he is a supporter of the Occupy Wall Street. He added the following to his diatribe against the president: “I hate business people. Since when was making art about getting rich?” The guy’s worth millions of dollars,, and I suspect that he has lots of business people working for him. As has been said, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblins of little minds.” I guest West is a great mind kinda guy.
Now we come to America’s newest Secretary of State. John Kerry, after recalling a stupid decision he made when he was 12 years old, stated the following: “In America, you have a right to be stupid.” I agree, but no one should have to pay for someone else’s stupidity, and that’s exactly what Democrats and RINOs want us to do.
Being stupid doesn’t mean having a low IQ; it’s about being ignorant and morally corrupt. America is made up of stupid voters. But maybe they’re not so stupid. They know if they can pool their resources, they can get enough votes to put people in office that will take money from the prosperous so they can get something for nothing.
It seems to me that John Kerry learned the wrong lesson wrong lesson as a 12 year old. Stupidity pays.
