I was listening to the Johnny Tittle radio show (Insight AM) on KOFC this morning, when I heard an idea that took me aback - and it really does take a a lot to do that.
One listener called in with the suggestion that all illegals should be shackled together, and walked back to Mexico - no matter how many hundreds of miles it took. Along the way, the shackled prioners could pick up trash along the highways. While Johnny said that he'd volunteer to hand out a few baloney sandwiches to those on their way out of the United States, the caller said that he'd be willing to ride along on a horse and help keep herd on the prisoners. Much giggling ensued.
The whole racist notion of this idea - especially in terms of America's past - seemed to have escaped our stalwart host.
One might expect this sort of nonsense from Michael Savage and his ilk, but Tittle always claims that his show comes from a Christian perspective.
Not today, Johnny.
Johnny has invited me in the past to appear as a guest on his show, as he was once on mine. I think I'll call and take him up on his offer. I believe I could handle whatever his callers throw at me.
Once again that imp of Satan, Harry Potter, threatens the sanctity of American culture. But then, like all those who are denouncing his books in the name of God, I haven't actually read any of them.
I like the movies, though. Maybe I should dip my toe into the Potter Sea.
I wonder if these folks, who suffer from hysteria when they learn that Harry Potter books are in the school library, go through the same anguish when they hear about the witches in 'Macbeth?"
I was getting coffee from a machine in a building on the UA campus last week, when I noticed a poster for the Bush School of Government and Public Service, at Texas A&M University.
"Public Service is a noble calling," proclaims the poster, which then lists some of the degrees one that earn at the Bush School (isn't that an oxymoron?).
The most fascinating degree offered is an online degree in Homeland Security.
I'm sorry. I'm not trying to put down anyone who gets an online degree - but Homeland Security?
Is that where all those clueless spokepersons come from that we see so often on CNN and FIXed News?
I got me an online degree in interrogation. heh heh
I have emailed the school for more information, which I'll pass along.
