Hooray! I'm published!
This is my letter to the Toledo Blade.
I think the blade part is actually a scythe, like a sickle and hammer kind of thing.
Here is the original quote I was refering to in my letter:
To which I replied...
From the Toledo Blade.
Your July 5 editorial stated, "The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the nation's oldest civil rights organization …"
This is incorrect.
I don't know for sure what the oldest civil rights organization is, but the National Rifle Association was founded in 1871, far earlier than the NAACP'S 1908 founding. This makes the NRA the older of the two, and perhaps the oldest, period.
I realize that The Blade doesn't think the Second or Fifth amendments count as rights, but they are still in the Bill of Rights, and should be discussed as such.
jimmyb the Conservative UAW Guy and all around lovable yet kick-ass dude(Pretty cool name for a town, eh?)
Ok, the name was changed to protect the guilty.
But they did print my slam at the end!
The 5th amendment crack was regarding another commie editorial they had praising the Supremes decision to make us a police state and confiscate peoples' property for private business.
Heh. Stoopid commies.
Let the book and movie deals commence...
