Was that Boston marathon bomber up for a plaque in Beantown? Maybe they could make a plaque out of him? Remember the sidewalk urinals the French were fond of?

That's ridiculous. I stand corrected. Since they have no criteria recognizable why not add Mandela? And pit. It could be in honor of protectors of blogs in one horse towns.

I had to look it up, but the icons of baseball had been honored at Yankee stadium. Incl Robinson, Ruth, etc. Mandella gave a speech there (old stadium) saying "I am a Yankee". I guess that impresses people.

You expressed your opinion pit, I'm expressing mine. Mandela had nothing to do with baseball, and a plaque for Robinson might be appropriate, but even that is questionable. He was a great player, but no Ted Williams. One more color coded celebration is not what is needed in this country.

Nothing Obama can do will elevate him after gifting the Queen a CD of some hip-hop thug.

And Frederick Douglass on lying traveling salesmen claiming slavery hardships.

I wonder why Lowery didn't speak at Obama's second term and blast him for not ending poverty and racism, and for continuing Bush's wars? Look up Booker T. Washington's comments about professional racists.

I should have said it was broadcast in its entirety by most TV stations live. I said video because I suspect it was archived as such since we don't use film anymore. Did you watch it through biased eyes and miss the low class conduct? Of course you may have lower expectations than a conservative.

It is not totally false. It's a matter of fact that was video coverage of the funeral. You might argue the last sentence, but the absolute fact is it happened.

Seadog-the Dems don't miss an opportunity. Remember at Coretta King's funeral the disgusting politicking by both Clinton and Carter showing animosity toward sitting President George W? They have no class but low.

loner-they weren't much. But I wanted some idea of what the man was since outside the news media. It was revealing. He reminds me of Clinton. You know he's lying, but he makes it sound good. I force myself to read stuff like Alinsky, Mao, Hitler, as well as most presidents.

Have both books, read them both before he was elected. Can you say that, or were you a latecomer with a thrill up your leg?

What are you looking for? Our revolution was set in motion by terrorists? Would I be justified in terrorizing the Democratic party and call it fighting oppression? What's the difference?

Mandella was a terrorist. Only you could miss that fact. Changed? Yes. But still as certain as Malcom X.

Obama even made up his white girl friend in his book. The man cannot be trusted.

Good one Digger. Read his books. Obama spent 27 years fabricating racial oppression, Mandela spent 27 years getting above it.

Mandela quote: "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping your enemies will die." Obama quote: "If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun."
