King's legacy still cause of debate

Jan 19, 2014 Full story: USA Today 1,088

It is a large legacy that looms over the past five decades, from the prophetic "I Have a Dream" speech delivered during the March on Washington to his last campaign taking a stand for underpaid black sanitation workers in Memphis, the city where he was slain.

You wouldn't resort to calling me a liar, would you? Of course, it would not reflect poorly on me if you did. Despite your unpleasant tone addressing me, I've gone out of my way to be nice to you, even encouraging you to enjoy Cincinnati's trendy OTR, and most recently answering your questions about my opinions concerning local radio stations and Chris Smitherman, with whom I'm not that familiar. Now, per your request, I'm giving you more information about Chris Smitherman's tea partier connection, which you'll find here: http://citizensagainstjoedeters.blogspot.com/... . I'm not sure what you find so difficult to imagine such a connection.
By the way, you're welcome.
This is your proof? It's a blog with a Anonymous author if Im not mistaken, you now say you are not familiar with Smitherman, but in an earlier post you said "Chris Smitherman and Bill Cunningham are both tea partiers" maybe you are just uninformed.

Your showing the world(not to mention the voter demographics you need to win an Election.) what the TRUE face of the radical Right is all about .

Proof of what? You brought up Chris Smitherman and I told you I'm not all that informed about him, but suspect his motivation may be primarily machiavellian.

What more do you want? Word has it that you can't squeeze blood from a turnip.

Go back and read post 171, "Now, per your request, I'm giving you more information about Chris Smitherman's tea partier connection, which you'll find here: http://citizensagainstjoedeters.blogspot.com/ .... I'm not sure what you find so difficult to imagine such a connection."

I've been trying to tell you nicely that I really don't want to quibble with you. It's just not that interesting. I'm certainly willing to concede that you may be better informed about Chris Smitherman than I, if that's the trophy you want after all, you're the WLW fan, which I'm not. Would you like a framed certificate?

However, if you persist in hurling insults, I'll place you on my Knights of the Satanic Order of the List of Terminally Insulting and Disgusting Without Redeeming Capacity for Reasonable Discourse — or simply “Club SOL” for short. Once so knighted, there’s no opportunity for reinstatement to the Knights of the Holy Order of the List of the Decent, Honorable, Desirable and Reasonable. Jesus still loves members, but they’re nevertheless in solitary for eternity. Like a Roach Motel, one can check in, but can’t check out, and there's no room phone for contacting the front desk or management. These considerations not withstanding, members are encouraged to keep busy filling out complaint forms.

You may have noticed that there are several posters here to whom I never respond, regardless of how persistently or provocatively they may troll or sometimes try to suck up. They're all Knights of the SOL.

Are you in?

Irving and Ira wrote a lot of good songs, and did Jerome Kern and Rogers and Hammerstein and that De-lovery guy whose name escapes me.

Blacks are de-evolving socially in direct correlation to their subservience to the surrendercrats who enable illiterate teens to spawn future felons with generational welfare.

If MLK were alive today, he'd recommend pulling your pants up, graduating from high school, speaking proper english, and getting married before having kids.

Typical connedservative crap... ignore economic conditions.

Reaganomics halted the progress being made against poverty in the U$A, and left the inner cities to rot.

Those black Yanks who got into college (often on affirmative action) ended up with jobs, car payments and a middleclass life. Those left behind... well, schmucks like you want to blame them for their own situation.

I've been an inner-city school teacher so you're bull$hit won't get past me, chump.

Ira Gershwin was mostly partnered with his younger brother George, and wrote some great lyrics for George's terrific music.

If you're referring to "Wouldn't It Be Lover-ly", that was in My Fair Lady, by Lerner and Loewe.
But if you mean "De-lovely", that was Cole Porter, with lyrics by Robbie Williams, from the musical "Anything Goes."

Irving Berlin worked alone, writing music and lyrics for literally thousands of songs.

Typical liberal lies. I'm not ignoring anything. Blacks have only gotten more ghettoes from NYC liberals. I was born in Rockaway Beach. They just closed Peninsula Hospital where my brother was born. The next nearest one is a 45 minute ride. I'd need a SWAT escort to go back to my old neighborhood on Shore Front Parkway.

Rudy cleaned up NYC. It won't be long until Diblasio turns it into bankrupt Detroit.

Teacher unions and the liberal destruction of our families has destroyed our schools.

College is over-rated. I recommend a plumbing license and a library card for most, instead of wasting six figures on a pottery degree and pot-induced black lung disease.

Affirmative action is more of a threat to America than Islamic terrorism, and is racist and misogynist in and of itself. It's the reason we are falling behind in the world.

You're the liar, boy. The economic condition of the inner city deteriorated largely AFTER Reagan implemented his corporate-sucking trickle-down economic policies, now recognized as an obvious and colossal failure.

You're full of fascist propaganda. Teachers Unions destroyed America! LOL... nobody believes that crap but the most hardened dittohead, boy.

Black lung is caused by coalmining, boy. Coal mines without Unions end up deathtraps, since corporate power has no morality and cares not about piles of dead miners as long as the profits go up.

We are falling behind because of the Reaganomics gutting of our social system, including education. The U$A remains a 2nd-tier country, INFERIOR to the rest of the developed world which adheres to the more advanced policies of demosocialism. They all have universal healthcare access... we just got it in 2014, despite the greed-motivated reactionary resistance to change by misanthropic connedservatives like you.

yeah, Cole was who I couldn't recall. Ive got a good memory, it's just short. And I didn't mean to imply that Irving and Ira worked together, just that they each did some good shit.

and we didn't even mention a local boy, Johnny Mercer, or the guy that Ian fleming used as a model for James Bond, Hoagy carmichael

Mercer and Carmichael, two good composers. Though I couldn't stand Mercer's singing.
Hoagy originally meant for Stardust to be up-tempo, but was later convinced to slow it down. Among the many good interpretations of the song, a lesser known but beautiful one was by Nat Cole.
