What would MLK do?

January 17, 2012 § Leave a comment

A recent [20120117] email from “my friend” the current President. He doesn’t ask for money but rather that I join in wishing FLOTUS happy birthday. Okay, “Happy Birthday FLOTUS”. It begins “Friend –…. [and ends] P.S. — This weekend, people are getting together to volunteer in their communities in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day…

I am wondering what MLK’s position would be regarding POTUS and Guantanamo; and, murder-by-drone of U.S. nationals. I suspect MLK wouldn’t support either.


This POTUS seems to have found a way to make the U.S. feel good about the losing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, along the lines of the Nixer and Vietnam. This POTUS gives “good speech” that’s for sure. But little else.
