#jeffontheright thank you so much for putting in the time to research CRT well enough to help me better understand it. I just listened to your recent Fresh Perspective on the subject and learned quite a bit. I'm looking forward to your upcoming conversation with Gabrielle Clark. I'm not a parent but I have to live in the world which is greatly influenced by our public school system and my tax dollars pay for it. Injecting CRT in our classrooms really concerns me and I agree that we need to stop bitching about it and start proposing alternatives. Trying to pass laws banning it reminds me of the 60s, when LSD first came on the scene (not that I'm that old mind you 😊) Recreational chemist Augustus Owsley Stanley III (Bear) began legally making and selling the drug to finance his favorite band, the Grateful Dead. When the government caught on, he'd change the formula just enough so it was legal again and they couldn't touch him. It took a while for the government to catch on to his game and pass broader laws and ban the drug for good. I think that's where we are with CRT. Word a bill one way and the NEA will tweak their propaganda just enough to skirt the law. We could play this game for years and, in the meantime, generations of our kids are being taught to hate our country and themselves for being part of it.
We're glad you decided to join us. I'm looking forward to interacting with you all on a deeper level.
Come on in, take off your shoes, let your hair down, and let's chat!
In this segment, I'm discussing how the GOP is planning to make racism a central issue of the upcoming midterm and presidential elections. The notion that America is not a racist nation will be a primary part of their campaign.
I think it's a great strategy, but only if it is done right. I do have some concerns...
Kudos to you @Jeffontheright on your decision to become a gun owner. I love that you are having fun but be careful, they can be addicting. My husband bought his first firearm, a Colt 1911, mail order when he was 15. He carries it to this day. My first was a Colt Diamondback .22 revolver. It's too big to carry so I also have a Sig .380. You might want to try one before you buy - it fits easily into a front pocket when you need to be discrete. I am so glad that 2A supporters have another strong voice to help us hold the line on the constant attacks on our rights.
btw, the next time you're in Houston check out Collector's Firearms on Westheimer. I have family in Texas and when we visit we make a point of stopping there. It's like going to a museum except everything is for sale. Anyway - have fun! It's gonna be a beautiful day here, I think we'll go to the range later 🙂
As one faction of the left pushes the fiction that the 2nd amendment was written to control black slaves, another defends it to SCOTUS by pointing out how racist NY has been in enforcing thier draconian gun laws. Grab some popcorn and sit back,this is gonna be fun. 🙂
@jeffontheright as a Texan I'm curious what you think of this. I've always liked Allen West and not really paid much attention to Abbott as long as he towed the conservative line. But I think Texas is approaching a crossroads and may need a change.
