The following companies were identified this year by NAN as sponsors:

 I doubt all of the companies support the actions of Al Sharpton, but they might want to know if their customers object to this support.  I’m sure they throw him some money just to get him to go away – kind of like what parents do with their kids from time to time, “fine, have a piece of candy and go away for five minutes.”

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Palin Took Out Michael Jackson?

alsharptonWe all know that Al Sharpton has a couple of screws loose, but this one is really out there.  To me this exchange takes the cake.

Evidently Mr. Sharpton has a radio program.  This fact astounded me, but the bigger befuddlement is that people actually listen to this guy.  Rev. Al had a caller that started off praising Michael Jackson and that she loved his music, etc., etc.  So far so good.  The conversation went further to bring up a possible reason that Gov. Palin stepped down from her Governorship in Alaska.  The notion was that she must have “done something” to Michael Jackson and there is a coming scandal. 

Not only is this ludicrous, but Rev. Sharpton just let it go as a possibility.  No radio host can totally control the rantings and wild theories of the callers, but in this case ther ewas NO discussion, NO questions, NO probing.  I guess that is what we can expect from our favorite opportunist.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Sharpton Plays the Race Card

This is an old story.  The Rev. Al Sharpton is constantly telling the world that we’re all racists.  The Michael Jackson memorial service was nothing different.  The whole speech was geared to create a victim of Jackson.  Why is he the victim?  He made massive amounts of money doing what he did best – sing and dance.  To assign him this status to blame everyone else (but Jackson) for his demise is total crap.

Those of us who are informed about current events know that Al Sharpton is an opportunist that has to have a camera in front of his face at all times.  The term narcissist comes to mind.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
