 Case of Kelley Williams-Bolar, Akron mom jailed for sending kids to suburban school, stirs emotions .  
 
  
Sadly, there was no music in the Akron Ohio courtroom that railroaded Ms Kelley Wiliams- Bolar.  It should should have included this treasure from the Good Ol’ Days of whuppin’ slaves and sellin’cotton.
       “Come, listen, all you gals and boys, I’m just from Tuckyhoe;

I’m gwine to sing a little song, My name’s Jim Crow.
Chorus: Wheel about, an’ turn about, an’ do jis so;
Eb’ry time I wheel about, I jump Jim Crow.
I went down to de river, I didn’t mean to stay,
But there I see so many gals, I couldn’t get away.
I’m rorer on de fiddle, an’ down in ole Virginny,
Dey say I play de skientific, like massa Paganini.
I cut so many munky shines, I dance de galloppade;
An’ w’en I done, I res’ my head, on shubble, hoe or spade.
I met Miss Dina Scrub one day, I gib her sich a buss;
An’ den she turn an’ slap my face, an’ make a mighty fuss.
De udder gals dey ‘gin to fight, I tel’d dem wait a bit;
I’d hab dem all, jis one by one, as I tourt fit.
I wip de lion ob de west, I eat de alligator;
I put more water in my mouf, den boil ten load ob ‘tator.
De way dey bake de hoe cake, Virginny nebber tire;
Dey put de doe upon de foot, an’ stick ’em in de fire.[1]

 

I am shocked at the lack of outrage. Where is Morris Dees, Al, Jesse, The NAACP and anyone else who could stir an uproar over this late term abortion of justice?   Why wasn’t she bailed?  Who was her lawyer?  I don’t hear much very good lately about Ohio but its neighbor Indiana, is ass over teakettle  in KKK membership. state lines must blur.  I gotta say this one tops even my wildest, sickest imagination.  Kucinich sues over olive pits.  Think about it. 
 
According to one of the many reports I have read the DA’s office insisted on the charges.  Yet they plea bargain rapists.  This woman was sent to jail because she wanted her daughters to be safe.  She lived in public housing and fudged on her address.  Capital Felony what? And the school system wants restitution and this woman,  this mother,  about to become a teacher, is now a felon and can’t teach.  This woman is my hero.   By her actions and her love for education and her kids she has been screwed up the ass by the State of Ohio and where is the outrage?  I can hardly type for my own anger.  Who is the DA and who is the jury and who is the judge and what is going on in the land of the free and the home of the brave? The school system of Akron spent $6 grand following this arch criminal .  Don’t cry poormouth Akron.
 
I am so tied up in knots on this one I think I must do some cooling down and additional research on this matter,  Like finding out who the jurors were; her lawyer, the ADA and WHY it happened.
 
This an outrage. This  is almost as ugly as Emmett Till.  This has to be repaired.
Someone must step forward and reverse this outrage and fast.  Who has the balls????
Who?

Racism, Sexism, Ageism – American Traditions Run for Office September 28, 2008

Now that there is a hint of a peep that some GOP insiders are thinking Snarky Sarah should fall off the GOP ticket, I am waiting with bated breath to see if and how she does it.  Anyone who considers interaction with Canada a qualification for determining foreign policy has severe brain freeze. (And when was this contretemps with Canada/Alaska and why didn’t we know about it?)  As far as I can tell the closest the Snark has come to foreign relations is with her Kenyan houngan Rev Muthee.  She is a bad print of a smoke and mirrors magician who coughs on the smoke and walks into the mirrors while the rabbits run away.  Since neither Palin nor McCain know enough to get real – here’s  hoping the Grand Old Party pulls the plug on this fiasco without delay. Having a nice rack is not a qualification for much anymore since you can get a nice rack for about $5,000.  Anyone can buy those pricey Peggy Hill glasses and teasing hair is not actually a talent. Neither is having five kids. She should, drop – literally – out – ASAP.
 
As an aside; while McCain stood and repeated himself Friday night, I wondered what his running mate thought of the many times he mentioned “earmarks”.  Sarah’s earmark hobby doesn’t make her an expert on that either- pork barrel patronage is simply NOT kosher – even in Alaska.
So here we have a campaign concert in contradictions and a election rife with  three of the most un-PC components of hypocrisy alive and active in the United States.  Let’s review: 
 
AGEISM:
McCain is too old.  What is too old?  Too old for what?  Why is he too old? When was there an age cap on running for office. Who declared this to be a fact? You know who was too old?  Strom Thurmond.
 
And if it’s McCain’s health that is used as a clean up for ageism – let’s not forget “Just A Heartbeat Away from Another Heart Attack” Dick Cheney – who is still just several pace makers away from the White House.  Or the handsome and down to earth Ronald Reagan who may or may not have spent a good deal of his two terms in the throes of Alzheimer’s and or naps. Every time they mention McCain’s 72 year old heart it’s a slur.  Like it or not.
RACISM:
Obama is Black.  Obama is not Black enough. Obama is too black.  Obama has a Black wife and two Black children. .  Obama’s mother was white.  What about his middle name?  Obama is an elitist person of color (That is just a crafty word for uppity.)  Obama went to Harvard.  Is someone jealous? Seriously, doesn’t someone with 9 houses seem elite?  Even on an ordinary day I would not use the word elite to describe Obama but I would consider the McCain’s nouveau riche and they probably think they are elite. I know most middle of the road Americans are pondering how it came to pass that a dark looking man is running for president.  Some are scared and will not say so.  Others are forming militias.  If Obama was white it wouldn’t matter.  He might even slip by if his father had been white and his mother black but it is what it is. This is racist and every time someone mentions Black in a “roll your eyes” tone of voice or calls him the N word among “friends” – it’s a form of slur.  Like it or not.
 
SEXISM    
 She’s a Woman.  She has children.  She grabbed the main chance.  She was middle-aged.  She went to law school.  She wore pants suits.  Her hair was wrong.  Who does her hair?  Who chooses her outfits. What about those hairbands?   Look at that rack.  She pre-menopausal, she’s menopausal, she’s dried up.
She hunts and shoots.  She stood by her cheating man. Could be Palin or Hillary –  they have vaginas in common  We do not want the Senate floor to be turned into the vagina monologues* This is all sexist and thus slurs.  Like it or not.
 
There it is, the clock ticking away like a bomb.  And as loyal Americans we stand true to our history, culture, hypocrisy, fears, attitudes, religions and bank accounts –  at it again.   Every four years.  Like it or not.
* With a thank you to Eve Ensler for the creation of the term.
