Just got this in e-mail. And I salute my Cleveland friend that sent it to me:<quoted text>
I was working construction in Cleveland about 18 years ago and got lost. I ended up on a narrow little dead end in the projects trying to get my dump truck turned around. I got out to check my distances and an old black man came up to me and urged me to get myself out of there. He was obviously nervous and the last thing he said to me was, "these MFs around here are crazy". I jumped in the truck, drove all over the curbs and got gone.
Call me what you will, but just think about it.
I am going to reveal to you seven words that would have changed our life'
With these words you will have a new understanding of issues you have contemplated at length.
If these words were spoken years ago we would have entirely different influences in music and movies , and language.
If these words were spoken years ago , we would have a much smaller national deficit.
If these words were spoken years ago , we would have had far less turmoil in America.
If these words were spoken years ago , we would have all of our great cities prospering as well as the small towns.
If these words were spoken years ago , we would have far less violence and have far less need for gun control.
" We should have picked our own cotton"
