Bite Me, Screw You and Too Bad

"Since it's not considered polite, and surely not politically-correct to come out and actually say that greed gets wonderful things done, let me go through a few of the millions of examples of the benefits of people trying to get more for themselves.

There's probably widespread agreement that it's a wonderful thing that most of us own cars. Is there anyone who believes that the reason we have cars is because Detroit assembly line workers care about us? It's also wonderful that Texas cattle ranchers make the sacrifices of time and effort caring for steer so that New Yorkers can have beef on their supermarket shelves.

It is also wonderful that Idaho potato growers arise early to do back-breaking work in the hot sun to ensure that New Yorkers also have potatoes on their supermarket shelves. Again, is there anyone who believes that ranchers and potato growers, who make these sacrifices, do so because they care about New Yorkers? They might hate New Yorkers. New Yorkers have beef and potatoes because Texas cattle ranchers and Idaho potato growers care about themselves and they want more for themselves. How much steak and potatoes would New Yorkers have if it all depended on human love and kindness? I would feel sorry for New Yorkers.

Thinking this way bothers some people because they are more concerned with the motives behind a set of actions rather than the results. This is what Adam Smith, the father of economics, meant in The Wealth of Nations when he said, 'It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interests.'"

-- Dr. Walter E. Williams

“These days, kids don’t know difficulty,” says Park, a stocky man weighing nearly 225 pounds. “Everything is convenient: hot water, refrigerators full of food. What they lack is a sense of caring for each other, starting with their own parents.”

George Washington Statue Hidden In Box By NAACP

From: C.M. Sullivan
Subject: Geo. Washington banned from NAACP rally

Date: Monday, January 17, 2011, 2:17 PM

The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a "box" to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.

Rich Hall On The Dirty South


'If Hollywood is to be believed, the Deep South of the US can be summed by the three Rs: rednecks, racism and religion.

The comedian Rich Hall, who himself hails from that region (Charlotte, North Carolina), aims to overturn the Hollywood stereotype of the South as one gigantic Ku Klux Klan rally in his new documentary, Rich Hall’s the Dirty South, which goes out on BBC Four on Monday.'

To paraphrase author Jim Hightower, our political system doesn't need a third party. It needs a SECOND party.

Every time you encounter someone bashing Conservatives or Liberals, think back on this chart (which is only the tip of the iceberg). Our members of Congress all belong to the same party: the party of the rich and elite.

North Carolina’s Legal Holiday Observes Lee’s Birthday January 19th

Remembering Robert E. Lee: A Week-Long Observance

General Robert E. Lee Visits Wilmington:

My General Lee Picture
(I looked for years until I found one that I thought truly looked like General Lee and when I saw this one, I immediately bought it. I believe he used the picture of Lee standing on the porch at his home in Richmond after his return for the likeness. Very similar.BT)

In early 1870, Lee was serving as President of Washington College in Lexington, Virginia, and had decided upon a recuperative visit to Savannah, Georgia after experiencing chest pains and general exhaustion. Traveling by rail on March 24th via Richmond, Lynchburg, Raleigh, Salisbury, Charlotte, Columbia, Augusta, he was met in Savannah by the largest crowd ever to assemble in that city. After a short visit to

Cumberland Island below Savannah to visit the grave of his father, Light-Horse Harry Lee, he continued on to Jacksonville, Florida.

Returning to Savannah, Lee began the return journey by train to Charleston, and then onward to Wilmington, arriving there on April 28th. According to "Lee: The Last Years," Charles Flood, 1981, Lee left Wilmington by train on the morning of April 30th, bound for Portsmouth, Virginia. Taking the ferry to Norfolk, he continued on to Richmond, and then home to Lexington.

Here are two accounts of his visit here:

“On April 28, 1870, Wilmington received a very distinguished visitor, General Robert E. Lee. General Lee was said to have come at the instance of General (Raleigh E.) Colston, who carried his (Cape Fear Academy) cadets to Meares Bluff (Navassa) to escort him to the city. The general was entertained at the home of Honorable George Davis, ex-Attorney General of the Confederacy, on North Second Street where he received the cadets and citizens who called to pay their respects. The cadets were later marched on parade for General Lee on North Third Street, and, standing on the porch of Major C.P. Bolles at 215 North Third Street, he delivered a brief but inspiring address to them." (The Book of Wilmington, Andrew J. Howell, Wilmington Printing Company, 1930)

The General's arrival in Wilmington is captured in the words of John D. Bellamy, US Congressman in 1898:

"In the year 1870, General Robert E. Lee, the famous Confederate Commander in Chief, made a tour of the South and on his return came through Wilmington. At that time I was Captain of the Wilmington Military Company. We met the train on which General Lee came at the present site of Navassa, my Company being clad in its best uniforms, with their muskets, bayonets and swords splendidly polished! We were accompanied by a delegation of the most prominent people in Wilmington. Also with us was the Honorable George Davis, who had been a member of the Confederate Senate and Attorney General in Jefferson Davis's cabinet. We met General Lee and escorted him from Navassa on the train. Reaching the depot on Front Street, we formed ranks and followed the carriage in which General Lee and Mr. Davis rode to the latter's residence on Second Street between Walnut and Red Cross, where General Lee was entertained until the next day. He then proceeded on his return trip to Richmond.

It was a great honor conferred on me to have been Captain of the Cadet-Corps that escorted General Lee, and was reviewed by him in front of Mr. Davis's residence! The people of Wilmington thronged the balconies and streets to show their profound respect, reverence and love for the great Confederate leader and chieftain."

(Memoirs of an Octogenarian, John D. Bellamy, 1941)


The Cadet-Corps Bellamy captained was from the Cape Fear Academy, a military school begun in Wilmington in 1868 by General Raleigh E. Colston, who served as a Brigadier under Lee in the Army of Northern Virginia. General Colston was assisted at the Academy by Frank H. Alfriend, biographer of Jefferson Davis, and the school was operated in the Hill residence on Grace Street between 3rd & 4th Streets. In April 1870, General Lee addressed the assembled cadets from the front porch of Major C.P. Bolles residence at 215 North Third Street and "each member of the Corps enjoyed the honor of an introduction and a cordial handshake of the hand of the old General."

Telling The Truth About MLK

Telling The Truth About MLK

Each year Martin Luther King, Jr. is portrayed as more and more Christ-like by the Leftist US media. Turn off the radio and TV and tell the children the truth.

1) Martin Luther King, Jr. plagiarized his doctorate thesis. This is the biggest case of academic plagiarism in US history and the mainstream media censors this fact. In the 1980′s Boston University officials confirmed that King did in fact plagiarize his thesis paper, but claimed that they did not know it was plagiarized at the time it was accepted by the University. The officials said they could revoke his doctorate, but that revocation would serve no purpose.

2) Martin Luther King was a notorious user of prostitutes and even had multiple prostitutes in his hotel room the day he was murdered.

3) In 1957 King attended a training seminar run by Highlander Folk School. The school was a training center set up by the Communist Party USA and King attended functions with several known members of the Party. The subject matter of the seminar was on instigating race riots. Below is a newspaper photo of King at Highlander Folk School sitting next to communist Stanley Levison. Confronted with the photo on a later Meet the Press TV show, King claimed no knowledge of Highlander being a communist training facility.

4) For five years King’s personal secretary Bayard Rustin was a long time Communist Party USA member. He was also a convicted WWII draft-dodger, a homosexual, and had a conviction for a lewd act in public. Rustin formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) with King and organized the latter’s disruptive public marches. King completely surrounded himself with known members of the Communist Party USA.

5) Contrary to what has been claimed by King’s descendants, MLK never met Ghandi, nor did Ghandi ever endorse MLK. In fact, Ghandi was a major advocate of racial segregation while living in South Africa.

6) FBI Assistant Director Sullivan stated after King’s murder that the Bureau has evidence King embezzled money from the SCLC to finance his prostitution habit. King’s widow successfully lobbied congress to seal the FBI’s records on King for fifty years.
