Justice Clarence Thomas of the United States Supreme Court has published his memoir called My Grandfather’s Son and has been doing interviews on all the usual media outlets that people do who come out with a book, except one. That would be Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. For the first time ever, Rush used his radio show airtime to interview Justice Thomas for 90 minutes. Minus the news and commercial breaks it boils down to just under an hour.
For kids today, Justice Thomas’ life story, the problems he faced and how he dealt with them in a segregated South, serves as a blueprint for how to deal with adversity and make the American dream your own. It is truly awe inspiring regardless of the color of your skin and I hope you take the time to hear his story in his own words.
Best I can say about the interview is, regardless what prejudices one might hold about Rush, or Justice Thomas, or blacks, or whites, or conservatives, put it all aside and listen to this interview, his story. In my humble opinion, his book, if not this interview, deserves a hearing in elementary schools everywhere.

Not sure what the name of this horror flick is, but it makes Nightmare on Elm Street look like Sesame Street. For example, a 19 yr old woman was gang raped, so she gets sentenced to 90 lashes. When her lawyer complains that the gang of rapists got too light of a sentence, the judge raises the victims sentence to 200 lashes and the thugs that raped her get less than a year in jail. And it gets even more bizarre.
Under Saudi Arabia’s interpretation of Islamic Sharia law, women are not allowed in public in the company of men other than their male relatives. The court also banned her lawyer from defending her, confiscated his license to practice law and summoned him to a disciplinary hearing later this month.
Here’s a report that says that Saudi justice dictates that rapists get the death sentence by sword. That’s a nifty way of saying death by beheading. Yet, the rapists in this story get less than a year in prison and get to keep their heads. They apparently don’t have an equal protection clause in their laws. On the contrary, when it comes to women, there’s nothing equal in Islam.
Beheadings in Saudi Arabia are up to 136 so far this year compared to 38 for all of 2006.
Another tragic example of Saudi ‘justice’ is the pending beheading of a 19 yr old nanny. The baby she was caring for died in her arms while she was bottle feeding it. She isn’t being charged with murder, but she is condemned to death because the baby died while in her care.
What century are these people living in? The claim that Islam is a “religion of peace” necessitates a, to quote a famous woman in U.S. politics, suspension of disbelief. Be aware also when you see anyone representing CAIR that they also would like to see this insane Islamic Sharia law implemented here in the United States.
