AP (that would be Alinsky Press) finally saw fit to recognize that the Tea Party movement is more than just angry white males. Well no shit Sherlock! And oh Boy, that admission must of really hurt…
Did you AP idiots think only white folk were pissed off at the governments march to Socialism? And isn’t pretty fukkin’ hard to call a black Conservative “racist”? But, as the column points out once again, a Liberal has a slur for any and all occasions. I guess some on the Left only consider you “black” if you are liberal, union, and intent on sucking Mama America’s nipple for all its worth. I’m glad most free thinking people don’t think that way…
I’d love nothing more than for all proud black Americans to invite Conservative values into Congress this year, then vote to have Obama to vacate the premises in 2012. Are you listening Michael Steele? You have the ball, do you have the balls to make that happen? Damn, I hope so…
They’ve been called Oreos, traitors and Uncle Toms, and are used to having to defend their values.
Now black conservatives are really taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement — and for having the audacity to oppose the policies of the nation’s first black president.
As with many conservative movements, opponents have tried to brand the tea party as racists hiding behind economic concerns. An occasional tea partier toting ugly race-based phrases gives them ammunition.
But these black conservatives don’t consider that representative of the movement.
Some say Obama’s election rallied them and inspired more black Republicans to run for office in November. Some are courting tea partiers with a fiscally conservative message.
One of the things I used to enjoy (well, still enjoy when time permits) is a game of golf. Although a shadow of my former self on the links, it’s a game I still have great respect for. And there is no one else in the game (other than John Daly – rightfully so) who take more grief than Phil Mickelson. However, this classy move on Lefty’s part last weekend was my favorite sports story of the week. Dr. Buchholz is the doctor treating both Mickelsons wife and mother for cancer.
This shows that not all news is bad news, and some sports stars do “get it”.

Mickelson had invited Dr. Tom Buchholz, a radiation oncologist at Houston’s M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, to the tournament along with many other doctors and hospital staff. And on Sunday, on the 14th tee, when Phil was out of contention — hold the jokes for half a second — he invited Buchholz to take the bag from regular caddy Bones Mackay.
“This man has helped us through some of the toughest times that we’ve gone through,” Mickelson said. “He’s the best at what he does.”
Nice move from Mickelson. If the Gods of Augusta respect karma, Lefty’s going in with a little extra bump.

At least a small portion of Obaba’s movement toward Socialism/Fascism/Marxism is struck down by the courts.
A federal appeals court has ruled that the Federal Communications Commission lacks the authority to require broadband providers to give equal treatment to all Internet traffic flowing over their networks.
Tuesday’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is a big victory for Comcast Corp., the nation’s largest cable company. It had challenged the FCC’s authority to impose so called “net neutrality” obligations.
It marks a serious setback for the FCC, which needs authority to regulate the Internet in order to push ahead with key parts of its massive national broadband plan.
