The Pain of Cinco de Mayo

Today is Cinco de Mayo. I surely am not the first to suggest that this is a holiday that no doubt causes a sort of brain freeze for certain self-described conservatives.

Why is that? Well, Cinco de Mayo celebrates a battlefield victory by the Mexicans over the French.

Which disfavored group shall we root for? Oh, my brain hurts ...

For those of us of the Unionist persuasion, this is no contest. The pro-Union Mexicans are to be celebrated for waxing the pro-Confederate French.

Rick - I think we should be glad that the French haven't been down there on our border. I root for Mexico, for their economy to be reformed; for themselves because the deserve it, and so not as many of them will want to come to America. France is a mess, but light years ahead of Mexico. The French aren't dying to immigrate to the USA. Of course, I also root for the French to improve and to solve their many growing problems as well.

I hope you are well. I wanted to say hello and let you know that I recently self-published my first 'Hard To Swallow - Absurd Thoughts About God' book through Lulu Publishing. It was quite easy and totally FREE too. Thank you very much for visiting my blog and for linking to me, it has been a huge inspiration.

I plan to eventually give a copy of the hardcover book to most of my off line friends; conservatives, moderates, and liberals. I think the brevity of the 'absurd thoughts' will be a good way to help them to think about many of today's big issues.

Please download the FREE eBook(s), I'd love to hear what you think about them.

Try 'Hard To Swallow - Live', its download doesn't cost me anything.
I'm giving it away to ALL my blogging buddies, acquaintances, visitors, and my favorite blogs and their readers. I decided that making it 'FREE for a Limited Time' at Lulu is better and easier than having people have to email me for a copy.

Obviously then, FREE for anybody, so go for it guys! Enjoy! Also, if you like it, please feel FREE to send it to your friends too. Let it go viral, thank you!

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.

The 'War of the Words' continues...


absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
have regular book burnings

double as barbecues
post public executions

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
don't pay attention

ignore absurd thoughts
that are uncomfortable
