Nothing says ‘America’ to the world like guns. Bombs are probably #1 but they’re difficult to carry and hold up in welcoming ceremonies. A gold-plated, pearl-handle Smith and Wesson revolver is the perfect gift for the Pope. It’s memorable, blends beautifully with Vatican decor, is practical, and an inspiring symbol of our country. And it’s almost certain he doesn’t have one now.
Of course he’d have to register it – but his background check could be expedited assuming he doesn’t have any prior felonies. Character references? The man has them up the gazoo! Even though I’m a recovering Catholic, I’d vouch for the guy.
Anyway, we’ve given the Pope crummy gifts before – click the link. This time let’s give the Pontiff a gift of which we’re proud and one that has a distinctive American flavor.
“Sistuhs On The Leading Edge,” a California-based book club, were kicked off a luxury train on its way to a Napa Valley wine tour a few days ago. 10-of the eleven women were black and it seems they were sampling the wine a bit early on the trip.
The ladies were loud and getting a little drunk when some passengers complained. Train stewards asked them to be quieter a number of times but the party got louder. Finally the employees called the police and escorted them off the train. The “Sistuhs” were told their money would be refunded and provided a way home.
Of course, predictably, the charge of RACISM was shouted and the women felt they were singled out because they were black (or predestined for a hefty settlement or lawsuit.)
Some people just don’t know how to behave. Why should the rest of us have to put up with bad behavior?
But the worst behavior? That would be the left-leaning, politically correct, mainstream media which went overboard – as usual – supporting the ladies. I’ve included a link with many sources covering the story. Watch for terms like, “THREW them off,” “humiliated them,” and the best, punished for “laughing while black.”
