There are a lot of things I don’t understand in life. Some of these mysteries, I just ignore, but others nag at me.
How come it is acceptable for a group called African Americans For Obama to support the President, but if a group wanted to call itself White Americans For (insert your favorite candidate’s name) it would be racist?
How come when gasoline was predicted to go to over $5 a gallon this summer, people were saying that it would not go down until we voted President Obama out of office, and now that those predictions have been proven wrong, and gas is actually cheaper, people are saying that either A) It will stay cheap until after the election to help Obama get votes or B) the President has no control over gas prices and should not get any credit for lower prices?
How come when a white/Hispanic man killed a young black man in Florida, it was a racist act, but when three black men robbed and killed a white waitress in Illinois for her tip money, it was just a random crime? How come when a gang of young blacks beat a 78 year old man in Toledo, Ohio shouting “This is for Treyvon!” it didn’t make national news? How come Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton didn’t show up in Mobile, Alabama, or Baltimore, Maryland, where blacks attacked whites calling it justice for Treyvon Martin (the young man killed in Florida), demanding full investigations into those crimes?
How come after the Supreme Court upheld the Obama health care law, Mitt Romney vowed to repeal it if he gets elected, but acknowledged to ABC News that the health reform law he ushered in as Governor of Massachusetts constituted a tax just like the Obama plan?
How come people I know, who go out of their way to declare themselves Christians, send me the vilest jokes and cartoons about gay marriage, or depicting Barack and Michelle Obama as apes or baboons?
How come even though a Republican administration had control of the FBI, Secret Service, etc. during the last election and couldn’t find any evidence of a conspiracy to hide President Obama’s birthplace, so many other people with far fewer resources are convinced they have proof he wasn’t born in the United States?
