Rev. Martin Luther King

Today we celebrate Rev. Martin Luther King. Go listen to some of his speaches, you can find them anywhere on the internet. I sugget that you listen to the lessor know recordings, you can find a lot of interesting parallels between his time and our time.

Although he was very contraversal for his time we find that he was right on every issue he addressed. It was a hard lesson for a lot of us to hear at the time. I can't help but think that the repbulicans of today were against Rev King (or they would have been at the). They were for the war, they were for the status quo, they were scared of change.

Bush and his administration would have been the ones protesting against Rev. King. That is if Bush would have not have been a dope-head he would have protested the movement that brought about social justice, democracy, freedom and equality. I suppose Bush is making up for that time now.

Today we should give thanks for his contributionship to our country. Thank you for making America better.

I am offended by the following headline I saw at C-Span.

"Pres. Bush Says More Must Be Done to Achieve MLK's Dream"

President Bush has no right to talk about Martin Luther King's dream, at all.

I was just listening to Al Gore.

He makes a really relevant point: Mr. King was spied upon by the government. And we as a nation overturned that ability. And made rules against that action. The paranoid FBI did not nor could not predict what actions would be best for our country. Only the people can make thoes decisions. The people did make thoes decisions to stop spying.

Bush stands opposed to Martin King. He is an obsticle to the path of the American Dream.
