Re: Celebrating America, the Beautiful

I completely agree with you. I, too, was sort of thrown back at the reactions out there to the point of ignoring them. What Americans need to realize is that by 2040, the white majority today will become the minority. I hope in 2040 the majority will not have the same attitudes that have come out from the well-intentioned ad. Folks, we have always been a melting pot of race and nationalities and unless you are American Indian, your ancestors were not from America.

Re: Legislature mulls lowering gun age

Why is there any age limit on a minor using a handgun under her or his parents’ supervision?

Many folks start their kids out on gun safety and use as early as age 8; some even do limited introductory training at age 6.

What gives the state the idea that it has the legitimate power to interfere with parents’ discretion on this matter?

Re: Why we need Black History Month

I find it funny that young black people still associate their existence with slavery. Seriously. It’s over. In fact, I have a problem with people using the term African-American. Most black people that I know have never set foot in Africa. I am not Russian American. I was born here, that makes me American.

Why do we need Black History Month? Because most history is written by white folks. Sometimes valuable to think there are two sides to a story.

Re: Should Harry Potter and Hermione have gotten together?

J.K. Rowling is right. After all, she wrote the series. Besides, Ron and Hermione went to relationship counseling, only to find out he is gay. Not to mention she was going to kill him off, the poor thing.
