FT McPherson Closing

With the closing of FT McPherson in SEP 2011 is there any thoughts of the affect to PTC? It appears that there are several high salaried military and civilians that live in PTC. Or will most retire and not move to NC and IL when it closes?

WOW! how did you take my question on economic/social impact of FT McPherson closing and turn it in to a arguement (little discussion or reasoning) on race and evolution. What a jump, do some of you need to take your meds before opening your browser? Seriously, why would you do that? If you wanted to express your ill-formed opinions there are numerous places here for that. I would like to hear from those that are aware and thoughtful on this topic. And YES FT McPherson is closing in SEP 2011, if someone has more than their ill-formed opinion on that please share it and some evidence so I can look into the truth of your evidence.

I don't know Mr. Morgan (I don't think I do I'm new and met lots of people but not sure who is who in whoville). I will lean toward the positive and say I don't think he was being racist but sarcastic. I think it is best not to focus on a word but the content of what he was saying. Although I was trying to invoke some serious dicussion on this topic as I am new and interested in this new world I find myself a part of. I had not seen any dicussion on this so thought I might try my hand at starting some.

The government will need the space to house all the middle-aged and elderly people who are unemployed and are being displaced by Obama's socialistic programs. 4 and 5 bedroom houses in PTC will be given to 5 Hispanic families to share (the ones with outdoor kitchens will become neighborhood restaurants) and the former occupants will be relocated to Fort Mac and given a cot, 3 meals a day and educational programs that will help them vote Democrat.

I am not sure what you feel Hispanics have done to anger you, but I would appreciate it if you could keep your racial stereotypes in check long enough to realize that grouping individuals by race and assigning your negative stereotypes to them reflects short sighted ignorance and a pre-judging mentality that reflects poorly on you. Some Hispanics are actually hard working people who contribute immensely to the economy and tax base and are just as angry at the illegal immigration issue as you are.

On a related note, will you tell all those non-Hispanic Caucasians to stop molesting and kidnapping all of our children please? I know you are all related so talk to your cousins please. Sounds pretty stupid doesn't it? If you heard it five times a day for twenty years it would cease to be cute or funny.

If you are aware of multiple families (be they from northern Africa, Kosovo or Mexico) in a single family zone please do what I do and report them.

I have to go. I have a yard to mow and a siesta to take before we slaughter a goat for my cousins wedding and if I miss my time for the shower the Rodriguez family will have the restroom for the rest of the day.

Just think- please.

Simply an ignorant comment. The closing of Ft McPherson and FtGillem will not have significant effect on our local community.

That's a racist thing to say about Hispanics!

you might want to delete it.
Not good

since I've been in school. When did Hispanic become a race?

Submitted by Bonkers on Sat, 07/25/2009 - 12:33pm.

Hispanics are Americans with Mexican or Spanish in their past families.

Anglos are white Americans that have no Mexican or Spanish in their past families!

However, many Anglos are descendents of people directly from Spain!
Many Hispanics have more Anglo blood than do some Anglos!

Heritage causes most of the problems---not color.

Adam and Eve were Arabs or Africans or Chinese, I think.
If from great apes---then probably Africans.

Bonko, you are full of bull--Hispanics ARE NOT necessarily Americans--the term only has to do with cultural origin and zero, zip, nada to do with citizenship.

Then Puerto Ricans born there aren't citizens are they?

but not everyone that lives in Puerto Rica is Hispanic, but all Central Americans are Hispanic except the ones who illegally cross the border into Mexico - those are prisoners.

Hispanics serving in the Army are not necessarily Americans (but they should be) but those stationed at Ft. Mac are just there temporarily.

for that insightful bit of biology. Especially for the "Arab" race.

Submitted by Bonkers on Sat, 07/25/2009 - 2:40pm.

Well Tin Can you know there is NO Arab race!
Commom useage is White, Black, Hispanic, Asian--as used by the cops to describe race. Even though Hispanic is a mixture--as are most.

Many Anthropologists (Carleton Coon, -I'm serious here- among them) have settled upon Caucasoid, Negroid, Capoid, Mongoloid, Austroloid.
You might say, what is Capoid: a bright brown color, flecky hair, etc., rather than the Congo blacks.

Of course Charles Darwin thought there was only one race and that many sub species were eliminated by strong ones, about 2 million years ago, we were all Homo Sapiens. About 1.8 million years ago we became Home Erectus (stood up). Charles and God must have agreed upon only one race at the beginning anyway. There was only one!

Going further back, the Chimpanzee and the human are about 99% alike in genes. So, the 1% makes a difference.

Since the ealy humans, that we have history for, probably started in Iraq (where the Garden of Eden was, that is why I said ARABS.

I can't make the connection between Adam and the early chimps. God did both.

Submitted by MYTMITE on Sat, 07/25/2009 - 7:55pm.

God agreed or even had a conversation about there being only one race. Many, many years ago there was one race, it was only after people moved on to other areas of the world that there became different ethnic cultures, different looks--skin color changing according to where the groups were living, more sunshine, etc. I could of course cite what the Bible says about the situation but since you do not believe in the Bible it would be useless. Especially since Google has become your God and Bible. P.S. We are all still Homo Sapiens--well almost all of us.

Are you saying that the Austroloid got too much sun? Caused him to look like he does otherwise? They have Shamans you know!

Is he an off shoot of a Homo Erectus that never developed into white due to the sun?

Or is he a member of the Chimp family?

I know about as much about "The Bible" as any history book I have ever read.
I ain't never figured out who Kane married in the land of Nod! Did Eve have a whole bunch of kids and some went to Nod?
Did Adam and Eve live like 900 years like Methuselah. Did they have kids all that time?

Please do cite what the Bible says. Since the Jews wrote it, at the direction of God and Moses, maybe they can explain it better.

It might just be better that God would strike a sinner dead instead of depending on some Chinaman, or East Indian, to read the Bible and do right!

I simply think there is more than one way in this big world, and maybe others, to "do right' before dying. What one thinks while here, alive, doesn't mean a lot.

i do not recognize your name from earlier postings, so i can only assume that you are fairly new to the Citizen blog. Welcome to Fayette County blogging. You will find that this is one of the most racist, intolerant (mostly) to mention nothing about "insulated from reality" places you have ever run into. A thick skin is most definitely required, as well as a suspension of rational thought. Keep the faith.

Even a dead fish can go with the flow.

I love expressing my opinions on this site. Good description Yardman.
