a.m. on Tuesday that he will resign his "set"

with "Thank you and God Bless".
local authorities are investigating why
somebody defaced that Road Commission's sign
by slapping on a piece of paper saying
"RACISM", covering the word "Road". The vandal
also covered the road sign in front of the
commission's building, which states that it's
on Eckerle Road. Apparently, one probable
reason for Eckerle being on the Commission
as-is was because he has some history in the
written about last week, sadly, northern
Michigan has its problems with racism. With
its population 90-95% white - depending on
your whereabouts - you're going to have to
deal with racism. It doesn't matter if you're
in a shithole like Manceltucky, Kalkaskatucky
or Rapid Citytucky or if you're in a nicer
town like Harbor Springs or even Traverse
City. Even here in Grand Rapids, I hear the
n-word occasionally. I was at the Meijer at
28th and Kalamazoo not long ago and overheard
a phone conversation from a young woman who
referred to it as the "nigger Meijer". Sadly,
that location is long-known for being a
hotspot for beggars, even though some of them
are white. In my case, some have begged me for
African Americans aren't perfect. Then again,
neither are the white trash who populate
northern Michigan. I'm glad Darren Gibson from Southpaws even
touched on Eckerle's problems by stating that
if you want to go up north, you know you're
close if the banjos get louder. As I've said,
sometimes, I feel ashamed to come from up
there. It's one reason why I blog.
today, one of my Facebook friends - whom I
went to school with - announced that he
unfriended someone whom we both went to school
with. On his Facebook account, he has a
picture of a street that's supposed to say
"Black Lives Matter", but says "Get a Fucking
Job" instead. Well played. Several of my up
north FB "friends" are like that, too,
including some family members.
The point is,
is that this is why Drumpf needs his ass
kicked out of the White House in November by
any means necessary. Let's tell these yokels
that they're in the minority and that it's
time to make America TRULY great again.
Eckerle, maybe he'll just sit on his "sit" and
watch his Rome burn.
