Some people will do anything to get a day off from work.

State Senator Robert Ford is sponsoring a bill that would require cities and counties in South Carolina to give their workers a paid day off for Confederate Memorial Day. Sen. Ford's bill won initial approval from a Senate subcommittee yesterday (CITIZEN OJO SAYS: NO SURPRISE HERE). Sen. Robert Ford is a black democrat (OJO SAYS: I’M SHOCKED). Roughly 10 of the state's 46 counties recognize Confederate Memorial Day (OJO SAYS: I THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE – SURPRISED!!!). It appears that they took a quote from a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The member, Ron Dorgay endorses the bill whole heartedly and then goes on to say race relations have moved far from hatred but he hopes Ford's bill brings more understanding of the state's past.” "Even in school systems, they don't teach the correct history." What??? For years black folks have been complaining that schools don’t teach history correctly and now white folks are saying the same thing. You can find the rest of this story on Fox News online. Just go to their webpage and type in “Black Man Will Do Anything To Keep From Working.”
