Martin Luther King Speech Anniversary

Or maybe I should have titled this rant Democratic Campaign Speech.  I do have to admit that I didn't watch the speeches.  Quite frankly, I forgot about it.  I do remember the original day and the speeches.  I was between jobs and watched.

But I digress.  Have you looked at the list of speakers?  Presidents Obama, Clinton and Carter.  Do you notice anyone missing?  Were either of the Presidents Bush invited?

None of the other speakers were conservative blacks.  Where were they?  The few snippets of speeches I heard didn't praise Dr. King.  He was a man of principals, he truly believed in his cause and was willing to take responsibility for his actions.  He was a man of peace.

There has been a lot of progress toward true equality in the past 50 years thanks to Dr. King and his peaceful crusade.  We need more leaders like him.

I think Dr. King would be appalled with people like Al Sharpton running the show. Here is my thought on the day.
