It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Indian student named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade.

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty , or give me Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up: ‘Patrick Henry, 1775′ he said.

‘Very good!’

Who said ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?’

Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. ‘Abraham Lincoln, 1863′ said Chandrasekhar.

The teacher snapped at the class, ‘Class, you should be ashamed. Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do.’

She heard a loud whisper: ‘Sc*ew the Indians,’

‘Who said that?’ she demanded. Chandrasekhar put his hand up.

‘General Custer, 1862.’

At that point, a student in the back said, ‘I’m gonna puke.’

The teacher glares around and asks ‘All right! Now, who said that?’

Again, Chandrasekhar says, ‘George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.’

Now furious, another student yells, ‘Oh yeah? S*ck this!’

Chandrasekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher , ‘Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!’

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said ‘You little sh*t. If you say anything else, I’ll kill you.’

Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, ‘ Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him- 2004.’

The teacher fainted.

And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, ‘Oh sh*t, we’re screwed!’

And Chandrasekhar said quietlly, “I think it was the American people, November 5, 2008.”

Full credit to the Cajun.

Interesting how things like this are just now being uncovered.

I haven't always agreed with everything the author writes and don't read her blog daily but this is INTERESTING to say the least. After nearly two years and almost a billion (Yes, 1,000,000,000) dollars spent, we elected a man we know almost nothing about.

a deep misgiving

I fear our nation has made a grave mistake.

I have been wrong in my life before and will be again but this I fear, that by electing a man seemingly amoral beyond anyone's imagining we may call down ruin upon our heads. The one issue that never gained steam in this campaign is the one that may ultimately hang us by the blackness it casts upon our hearts & souls. The forces of death in this country have never had an ally like Obama. Over 43 million deaths since Roe v Wade became law; that's the entire population of New York State, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

If his allies are given a head of emotion to run with it will become a self-consuming hatred of all things good. We will see a division in this land like we have never seen in over 100 years.

That said, I suppose I should be gracious and add my congratulations to President-elect Obama. I learned in sports to congratulate the winner no matter what. Its the effort that you honor not the defeat. I disagree with the man in so many ways but his party ran a dammed effective campaign. There were many, many mistakes made by my party and in the end Senator McCain was a patriot in defeat. As someone else said, "County first!" Well done President -elect Obama. Good luck.

Sorry about the depressing post, I am in deep physical and spiritual pain. Aside from the obvious, a reoccuring old sports injury has been acting up for the last two weeks and the result is that I may have to have "Peyton Manning" surgery on my right knee. I am hobbling around like an old man. If you want to spare a prayer for Queen Tiger, she is the one who has to put up with grumpy me.

I am suspending posting for a while.
