Oh, So That’s Why Folks are Homeschooling

I’ll give you three guesses which one of these guys is a highly-paid Metro Schools administrator:

Now every leader in history had a particular calling, the greatest leader in America that we know was Jesus Christ, there are other countries that knew Buddha, Mohammed, some just knew God, Allah, Yahweh; and then there were men, Attila the Hun, Hannibal, Mansa Mussa, King James, Lancelot, Russo, Socrates, Plato, Martin Luther, Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Benjamin Wright, leaders whom we consider the great achievers.

This begs the question, though, if Lancelot is on the list, why isn’t Beowulf?

Ha, ha, ha.  I kid.

  1. Is that Rene Russo (not a man or a leader) or Jean-Jacques Rousseau?
    Weren’t Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammed men?
    Did Jesus ever live in America?
    Is Wright really okay with the rough association between greatness and power, not a more qualified evaluation that allows us to consider conquerers not so”great”? Or is he setting up his legacy of greatness to be one of the those successful only through violent repression?

  2. At first I thought he meant Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.

    This also begs the question, if God, Yahweh and Allah are on the list, why not Zeus, Jupiter, Vishnu, Crom, Rao and Woden?

  4. I was going to draw the Lancelot Link connection in the post itself but figured nobody would get the reference S’tro, you the man.
