I agree with Truthful, go to work. Meth labs weren't on the list.

My business, The Old Carb Doctor in McDowell County, will be open for business on January 19.

They can't force small businesses to close on select Federal holidays which their owners choose not to recognize -- yet.

Those cities spent a small fortune to erect signs large enough to contain the full name of the street -- "Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard" – because it would of course dishonor him to simply call it “King Blvd.”

About twenty years ago, I saw one entirely spelled out as above. It was in Atlanta, as I recall.

Hey, Sarge!

I'm dong fine; I haven't been on Toxix as much as I once was, but occasionally I still like to throw a politically-incorrect hand grenade or two onto the table.

Glad to see YOU back; you were gone for a while yourself, weren't you?

It was his wife that blasted him! Why not? He cheated on her all night with a BLONDE prostitute and then gets blasted. MLK busted hell wide open. It has been suppressed for decacades by the black man but we will not let the black propaganda machine run rampant. MLK was a piece of womanizing crap....like ol' jesse jackson, who made child support for 20 years in secret. Then this guy "prays" for America. SLIME

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Obama sure as hell wasn't judged by his character (or lack thereof), but rode in on white guilt and the concept of positive discrimination.

The dream is dead. Martin Luther King's ideals have been discarded for the cult of victimhood and entitlement.

Your glass is not even 1/2 empty, it's shattered up against the wall and broken into a million pieces. MLK's dream is more alive than ever and only an imbecile would be blind to that.
