Rick Perry compares the civil rights movement to the GOP's fight for lower taxes for the rich

During the week that the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial opens to the public on the National Mall in Washington, Texas Governor Rick Perry finds a way to insult the legacy civil rights movement, and by extension, black people. It's all in the timing.

The newly minted presidential candidate was on the campaign trail in Rock Hill, South Carolina. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Rock Hill lunch counter sit-in, when studentsfrom Friendship Junior College vowed to engage in civil disobedience and go to jail in the process. A reporter mentioned to Perry, "This year we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Friendship Nine sit-in."
"Listen, America's gone a long way from the standpoint of civil rights and thank God we have," the governor responded.
"We've gone from a country that made great strides in issues of civil rights, I think we all can be proud of that. And as we go forward, America needs to be about freedom," Perry added. "It needs to be about freedom from overtaxation, freedom from over-litigation, freedom from over-regulation. And Americans, regardless of what their cultural or ethnic background is, they need to know that they can come to America and you got a chance to have any dream come true because the economic climate is gonna be improved."
For the rest of my take on Perry, follow the link at theGrio.

You should be baffled by so a assortment of sites. You must ascertain regardless of whether or not this website consists of the superb reputation. I think possibly one of the most critical factors I will look at into account when I purchase wow gold from some website could possibly be the price,the pace of delivery along using the safety. Some wow gold purchasers who often purchase wow gold will know even if this website is famous, they might not article you wow gold at once. for the most part because for the fact they possess a tremendous quantity of purchasers every solo lone and day-to-day as well as they should cope possessing a tremendous quantity of orders every solo lone and every solo day. I would instead purchase from some Cheap WOW Gold internet web web pages that occur to be not so well-known but possess a superb reputation.
