Is your child, niece, or nephew a fussy eater? Do the kids in your family turn up their noses at the sight of turnip greens or chicken chow mein?

Well, there are people out there who don't think they're just being picky - they think these toddlers and pre-schoolers are closet RACISTS! I kid you not!


Are you like so not surprised?

Coming soon to a school or government daycare center near you!

By the way ... are you underemployed and want to make a killing? Head for Denver, Colorado during the Democrat National Convention and consider delivering pizzas, fried chicken, and Mexican food. With their wacky liberal Mayor John Hickenlooper (no joke!) ordering the convention to go green and healthy to boot, banning anything that tastes good, and mandating organic balloons be dropped (I wonder if they'll leak and from how far away they'll be manufactured?) the delivery boys and girls ought to make a mint.

Even if they banned entry into the convention events, all the homeless, illegals, and protestors they'll have secured in cages and behind bars will be super mad and voracious to boot. Maybe Hillary should consider passing out those donuts again. I don't think they'll be in the mood for Tofu and alfalfa sprouts, and she might well kick-start a mass protest, force a floor fight, and win this nomination yet. :-D

Barack Obama is always embarrassed about America over something. The latest cause for criticism is due to so few of us being able to order our filet mignons medium rare in French when we travel to Europe (Is that elitist or what?).

I suppose it never occurs to Obama that European countries are like states to us and that people naturally learn different languages because they travel so much. Plus, English is an international language now.

Of course Obama doesn't seem to mind kids attending American schools who are unable to speak English! Now that's a tragedy.

Questions the media should ask Obama: How many languages do you speak? Do Chicago schoolchildren learn to speak second or third languages? Should English be our national language? Can you speak any of the over 100 Kenyan dialects spoken in Kenya?

I know some libs are having withdrawal symptoms with things going so well in Iraq and with so few burning Toyota car bombs brightening up the evening news.

You see, only bad news from Iraq is worth covering. Maybe they can start broadcasting a "best of the explosions" series leading up to the general elections. They could put Previously Recorded in small print ... maybe in French or Spanish. :-) Filmé avant?

I finally figured out Baracks constant flip-flops on all those issues. He lived in Hawaii, right?


Oh, and just because one of my best friends always says, "Oh, they're not going to do that" whenever I point out some new progressive outrage, here's a fun story from the "Lightbulb police" files:


Yep, House Inspectors have been auditing light bulbs in the UK for some time. What will you do when the "Man or Woman in Green" knocks on your door and tells you they're there to check your lightbulbs, hhmmmmm ...?


Saw an eyeball peepin'
Through a smoky cloud behind the green door
When I said "Joe sent me"
Someone laughed out loud behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door

Midnight, one more night without sleepin'
Watchin' till the mornin' comes creepin'
Green door, what's that secret you're keepin?

As a British citizen, I won't comment on American political matters, but I will comment on the linguistic aspect of this story. I woulkd recommend a wider use of Esperanto, not to take the place of English, of course, but as a relatively second language for all.

Take a look at www.esperanto.net

Esperanto works! I've used it in speech and writing in a dozen countries over recent years.
Indeed, the language has some remarkable practical benefits. Personally, I've made friends around the world through Esperanto that I would never have been able to communicate with otherwise. I recommend it, not just as an ideal but as a very practical way to overcome language barriers.

I always find the case for Esperanto very well argued.

However although it has become a living language, not many people know that it has great propaedeutic values as well. Esperanto helps language learning. :roll:

The role of English internationally is probally also over-rated. In Britain not even the England soccer manager speaks English.
