TEXT TO NEIGHBOR:
Hi, Fred, this is Richard, next door. I’ve got a confession to make.
I’ve been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. At least I’m telling you in this text and
I can’t live with myself a minute longer without you knowing about this.
The truth is that when you’re not around I’ve been sharing your wife, day and night. In fact, probably much more than you. I haven’t been getting it at home
recently and I know that that’s no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can’t live with the guilt and hope you’ll accept my sincere apology and forgive me.
Please suggest a fee for usage and I’ll pay you.
Fred, feeling so angered and betrayed, grabbed his gun and shot Richard killing him. He went back home and poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.
Fred then looked at his phone and discovered a second Text message from Richard.
SECOND TEXT MESSAGE:
Hi, Fred. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I expect you figured it out and noticed that the damned Auto-Spell Correct had changed “wi-fi” to “wife”.
Technology, huh? It’ll be the death of us all.
Regards, Richard -Dave

For the last seventeen or so years, I have watched with some horror (and not a little disgust) as my former institution of “higher learning” began to slowly slip into the hell of political correctness.
I suppose back then I rather naively thought that KSU would somehow manage to stay above the PC lunacy many colleges and universities have been rapidly descending into over the last two decades. After all, this area of the country is not exactly known as a bastion of liberalism.
Whatever hope I once had for my former university has now evaporated:
College Puts White People in Separate Room For ‘Privilege Workshop’
By Jillian Kay Melchior|1:37 pm, April 18, 2017
When Kennesaw State University held an event last week on privilege and interracial relations, it asked “those who identify as white” to go to one room and “those who identify as people of color” to go to another.
“The goal of the workshop, which was led by an outside expert, was to foster learning and create an environment of understanding and support for one another,” said Kennesaw State University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel. “Attendees were asked to work together and then were invited to join the group with which they identify.”
The April 13 event “is being mischaracterized” as segregation, DeMel added.
The event, a workshop called “Being, Becoming and Fostering Allies: Building Relationships Across Privilege,” was taught by two psychology professors and one grad student from the University of Massachusetts, as well as a Kennesaw State University professor.
In it, students learned about becoming an ally for less privileged people, as well as “the essential roles of self-reflection, cultural humility, and re-engagement after failures.”
Kennesaw State University is the latest to grapple with the implications of separating students by race. In the last academic year, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Michigan, and Concordia University all found themselves facing accusations of segregation after they held events divided by race or focused on one particular racial group.

Despite the (weak) protestations to the contrary, does anyone actually believe the true goal of this blatantly racist, bull-squeeze “workshop” is not meant to drive a wedge even deeper between the races?
I have a bridge to sell you if you do.
Had something like this been attempted when I was enrolled there back in the day, most of my fellow students would have pitched a fit.
But that was another time in an America that apparently no-longer exists. Dave
Unless you were swept out to sea by Colin over the weekend, you are probably keenly aware of the latest dust-up involving certain comments Donald Trump made concerning the “judge” that is overseeing the now famous Trump U case.
Gutless RINOs have been falling out of the rafters ever since, condemning Trump for his “inexcusable” and even “racist” statements questioning the objectivity of U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel.
Now that more information is beginning to surface concerning Judge Curiel and his questionable personal and professional associations, those that have jumped on the Slam Trump bandwagon without so much as looking first are beginning to appear not a little silly.
In fact, they are looking down right stupid. Trump has every right to raise the issue concerning this judge’s fairness. If I were him, I would have done exactly the same thing. And no, I would not have sugar-coated it, either, as I have heard many talking heads suggest that Trump should have done exactly that.
No, he should not have tempered his comments, and I am very glad that he chose not to.
I have been hearing a lot of commentators suggesting that Trump needs to “tone it down” now that he is the republican nominee apparent.
My question is, why? Trump being Trump is what has gotten him this far. Why screw with the formula now?
Sadly, it appears the affliction known as Political Correctness has infected all areas of American life, even in people that you would think should know better.
Erick Erickson, who is definitely not a Trump supporter, is falling all over himself ripping the man, and has taken to pronouncing from his WSB studio here in Atlanta that Trump is going to destroy the Republican Party.
Personally, I hope Trump burns the whole corrupt RINO zoo to the ground.
Then I hope he bombs the ashes – just to be sure. -Dave
Just thought I would throw in a little fall public service reminder for our camel-flea infested dune monkey friends:
Never let it be said that I am not diversified in my civic mindedness.

Jimmy Carter says he would have defeated Reagan had he been more ‘manly’
By Paul Bedard | October 1, 2014 | 10:58 am
Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran.
Interviewed by the show “CNBC Meets,” Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.
“I could’ve been re-elected if I’d taken military action against Iran, shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth,” said the former president, who has established himself as a world human rights leader.
“I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages and so I stood up against all that all that advice, and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free. And so I think I made the right decision in retrospect, but it was not easy at the time,” he said, according to a transcript provided to Secrets.
Interviewed with his wife, Carter said he also had to ignore Rosalynn’s pleadings to “do something.”
In the end, she said that she was proud of her husband. “Peace is very difficult. War is popular in our country,” said Mrs. Carter. Paul Bedard, the Washington Examiner’s “Washington Secrets” columnist, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. -End
