TGIF – June 23, 2017

June 23, 2017

More tidbits you may have missed.

Congressional Black Caucus posts a miss, again.

After apparently running out of real reasons not to meet with President Trump, the CBC refused his invitation for a meeting and cited as the reason, the way Omarosa Manigault signed her name.

Specifically, they whined that she was not “entitled” to use the words “The Honorable” when signing her name.

OMG…can you say petty?

In a strict grammatical sense, they may be right. This is the guidance from one etiquette maven:

“In the United States the Honorable is a courtesy title used with current and retired high-ranking federal and state officials and judges, and with some local officials. As a general rule, those appointed by the President of the United States (and approved by the United States Senate) and anyone elected to public office are entitled to be addressed as the Honorable for life.”

Although Ms. Manigault was appointed to her advisory post by  President Trump, that position does not have to be approved by the Senate. Her official title is “Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison.”

Even so, this smacks of such childishness, you can only hope the voters in their districts will vote for people with a mental age somewhat above their shoe size the next time around.

These people teach our children?

In yet another display of “free speech” another college professor is getting grief for his call to “end” the white race.

The subject of “white genocide” has cropped up, mostly on social media, much more often in the past year or so. And it isn’t just black professors, so this is not something that can be laid solely at the feet of black America.

In true American fashion, these haters cross all racial lines.

At Christmas last year, a white professor at Drexel reportedly posted a rant on the subject online, although he later said he did it as a joke. Some joke.

And of course there is the Yale dean, of Asian heritage, who just lost her job over proclaiming similar sentiments.

There are hundreds of these liberal  teachers and professors throughout the American educational system.

These are not people you want in positions where they can influence our young men and women.

Much ado about Nancy

Pelosi, that is.  OK, she’s made a career out of being a witch, at least publically.  She may be a very nice person in the privacy of her own home, but she doesn’t bother anyone but her closest friends and relatives there.

Once again, this is a case of Democrats looking past the dollars at their feet to pick up pennies.

There is no shortage of dislikeable people on the left. As many pundits have noted, when the Democratic party at large draws scathing criticism from Michael Moore, Nancy Pelosi is the least of their problems.

She’s a big girl, with decades of political wisdom behind her and as tough as nails.  Chances are that if she goes anywhere, it will be because it’s her idea.

Besides, she knows where most of the political skeletons are buried.
