Oh yay!!! I'm a bigot and racist now!!!! Fantastic!!! pfft

As some of you may or may not know.. I regular social sites often. First Myspace.. (which btw Tom.. YOUR SITE SUCKS NOW!!) and now Facebook. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed Facebook a million times better than I ever did Myspace. Anyhow. I post notes on there regularly and last night, I posted a note (ON MY PAGE mind you!) which was an email that I had gotten. I liked it, agreed with it.. and wanted to pass it along. It was an email about a letter that a school teacher wrote to President Obama.

So.. I tagged all of my friends who I thought might enjoy the read and WHAMMO!! I had some idiot, that I do not even know.... call me, my friends and my family a bigot and racist simply because I do not agree with Obama. He continued to tell me and my friends that the current situation the U.S is in now did not start with Obama (which I agree) but that we are all blaming him simply because he's black. Here... I will just show you what was said... I of course will remove the name out of respect of anonymity... Although I shouldn't.. but I am a bigger person here.

"Now in five months that he has been in office we have blame him for everything the past prez and his father has done we are quick to scrutinized everything he is doing and not giving him a chance why because he is black. None of you scrutinize bush this hard his 5th month in office and he did nothing about 9/11 all the american people who died ... Read Morewhile he read books to children. the pay cuts you are takrn now are the result of what he did not Obama, Once again you bigots need to realize what you are saying. The word Bigot may be hard but because you are judging him on color and not networth. We are a country of net worth I served in the marines for 12 years and I served in iraq, I served in beruit and some of what was in between. What have you done for your country.. Think Think Think before you talk because half of you just listen to the press haters and not looking to the other side."

First of all... I am a proud American who supports our troops.. and would like to thank this man for serving our country and fighting to protect our freedoms. I know many of my friends who are reading this are probably falling out of their chairs that I am doing this. But pick your jaws up off the floor now and continue reading.

One of those freedoms though that he has fought to protect is: The 1st Amendment to the United States Bill of Rights which says that I have freedom of speech.. Whether spoken or written.

Seriously.. Just because I did not vote nor do I like the things that Obama wants to do or is doing... I'm automatically a racist? I am going to take a wild stab in the dark and say that this person did not vote for Bush.. (I'm most likely right in that guess) Is it because George Bush is white? Is it because he is from Texas? Would it be safe to assume that this man voted for Obama strictly because Obama is black? Let's face it.. there are many people who did just that. They didn't care what his stance was politically.. they only cared that they wanted to vote for the black man.. Which by the way you moronic imbociles.. Obama IS HALF WHITE TOO!!! But I guess that makes me equally racist against whites also because I did not vote for him.

NEVER once have I even remotely insinuated that these problems we are facing today started the day that Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th President of the U.S.A. The problems started when we started electing greedy ass politicians, who are only out for their best interests, as leaders and officials of our country. Our leaders are not representing us anymore. They are representing themselves and their own ideals. Let's face it ya'll.. at this point.. It's every man for him/herself.

After I gave it much thought last night after he made his immature, unsolicited, uneducated and poor grammatical comment on my page.. I had to sit down and seriously laugh at his ignorance. Mainly because the email that I posted was in no way racist!! LOL! It was a letter that a woman wrote talking about how much she disagreed with how he has handled things politically so far.

Despite that I don't agree with Obama politically ( Which.. when it was all said and done.. I didn't agree with Bush either. And I voted for the man!!) I respect the office of the President of the United States. I respect Obama as a man. But do I respect HIM because HE is the President?? No.. I don't. Respect is something that is earned not freely given because of a position or title that person holds. As of this point, Obama has done nothing to earn my respect as President.

It is amazing how the political race of 2008 became an election turned into a racial matter. Let's keep our eye on the ball here please. *eye roll*

If I think of anything more that I wish to add to this.. I will at a later time. Otherwise.. That is all I have to say on this subject.
