You Can Have Any Color You Want, As long As It's Black
This is one of those times when I find myself in an odd position. No, not that kind of position. Why is everything always about sex with you? The world doesn't revolve around T&A, you know. There's beer, too. And the Naked Burger at Naked City (http://nakedcitybrewing.com/flash/#menu).
See? There's lots of other things and the other thing today is odd because it involves me agreeing with the of the Party Of Death, the right wing Republican vulture capitalists who truly believe that the return of classic old time slavery will solve all our problems because pretending that disposable slave laborers are free is just too cumbersome.
I don't agree with them on everything. I still find their Satanic Supply-Side Trickle Down Voodoo Economics and racial purity programs that dictate the extermination of the old, weak and otherwise useless to be fundamentally unsound. Call me old fashioned if you want but I still agree with Henry Ford, the nicest, wisest, anti-Semitic, fascist Hitler supporter I ever knew, who said, "It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages," which, roughly translated, means, if you are successful, you didn't do it yourself. Your workers and customers are far more responsible for your success than you are.
Of course, Henry also said, "Capital punishment is as fundamentally wrong as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as a cure for poverty," which I only half agree with but I am 100% with him when he saw into the future and proclaimed Bain Capital and by extension, Mitt Romney, as being completely worthless with these words, "A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business."
There are lots of other things I agree and disagree with Henry on so I guess you could say that today's oddness is historically consistent and that it's just as odd that if Henry were today, he would be in the same boat I'm in. Sort of. His boat would consist of him being fit to be tied over an African American being President and at the same time being proud of him for having the guts to say, in today's political climate, out-loud and in public that people like Mitt Romney owe everything to all the things everyone else did for them.
And my boat? Well, my yacht---I decided that if Henry gets a boat, I should have a yacht, which is even more appropriate when you consider that I'm partially Republican on this issue---looks like this: I agree with the right wing nuts when they say that we need more gun laws like we need another mass shooting.
But I still disagree with them on just about everything else. And we could go into all the various details of what that entails but why mar a perfectly good summer day that's only supposed to go up to 105 (105F=40.5556C) with a pleasant top-note of around 400,000% humidity with politics?
Especially when you consider that it's already been marred by the passing of Sherman Hemsley and Chad Everett? Are there any classic TV stars left? And what exactly did Henry mean when he said, "You can have any color you want, as long as it's black?" You know, on second thought, maybe I misjudged him a little. Maybe he wouldn't be all that upset over Barack being President. It's just too bad that all the other fascist pigs can't be that enlightened and evolved.
