Iv'e just about had it with the ilk of Gabby,Hillary,Teddy,John and the rest... I for one am really tired of the rhetoric of pulling the race card,accusing conservatives of racism etc...war is bad... support the enemy...just understand where he or she is comming from..yuk....enough is enough... I can remember back in 1962 my last year of High School before moving on to College and serving my country in the VN era...My best bud (Norm) and I put on our lettermens sweaters and went to POP(Pacific Ocean Park) a amusement park on a pier in Santa Monica California...Now I went to Burroughs HS in Burbank,California...and Norm went to Polytechnic in Sun Valley,California...We both went to competitive schools... grew up together before I moved to Burbank. To make the story short....well we were having a great time hitting on all the "Surfer girls" Norm was a greasser and I was a surfer...great mix eh...at any rate in the process we were surrounded by a large group of black males from a Los Angeles inner city HS...well they said they were going to kick our asses...now being the fact that Norm and I were small in stature...even though we did earn our sweaters...we were starting to sweat bullets...then out of nowhere came the cavalry...a large group of lettermen from Orange County came to our rescue...they said if ya want to fight we stand together.. I learned a great lesson from this...even tough we did compete on the field...well,they would and did support us off the field. Now you are probably saying to yourself...What the hell has this to do with racism...well the point being... it is nothing new..it happened way back in 1962 and way before that...nothing new and nothing exclusive of whites only...minorities also commit discrimination...they wanted to kick our asses just because we were a couple of white guys who were doing well(at the moment) with the surfer girls...I never was prejudice before or after this incident...I just took it as kids will be kids....food for thought! Now having said this...why is it that we never see kids running around in their lettermens jackets or sweaters anymore...maybe they should take out and dust off the "Oldies" records pre 1969!
