Optimism of whites in US lags blacks by big margin

Aug 1, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Log Cabin Democrat

Americans' attitudes about their economic future are sharply divided by race, with whites significantly less likely than blacks or Hispanics to think they can improve their own standard of living.

You figure it out Poindexter. I'm tired of spelling everything out for your stupid ass.
Yes, but you must first prove you fired a black vet tech in Feb. 2001. Do you think anyone is going to take your word for it?
Again, prove that happened.
Prove it didn't happen.

Prove you're a vet.

Prove you're not a racist.

Prove you're not a sexist.

Prove you're not a homophobe.

Do you think anyone is going to take your word for it?

Only racist whites aren't optimistic about the future.

The rest of us are as optimistic as anyone else.

<quoted text> I'm afraid the only roly poly baby we see stomping feet and balling fists is you. It's so obvious you were most likely fired by a vet because you endangered the lives of those precious animals because you didn't have the proper qualifications to work in that practice. Maybe they caught you molesting the animals or maybe you just couldn't do the job. Either way, you were fired and had to move on to yet another one of your jobs. It must help you to cope by insulting and pretending to hire them.
You are free to believe whatever you want.

Just as I'm free to believe you're nothing but a racist homophobic bigot.

That's what I love about America.

I'm not racist or homophobic in the least. Some our best neighbors have been gay...great people but their personal choices make my stomach turn. It's not fear, but being grossed out by it. I am entitled to think that and it doesn't make me a bad person one bit. Naturally, you would think everyone else is a racist. Since you are so deep in your own racism and bigotry, you can't think of anything else. There are good and bad people in all sizes, shapes and colors. Stats show the trends. No racism, just reality. Welfare is bad for everyone when it is used in the way it has been over the past 50 years. Someone mentioned that funds should be paid back and that is a great idea. The system doesn't help those who lack the motivation to help themselves. It starts with having kids you can't afford, for most. When folks live under the taxpayer roof, they should have restrictions until they can bet back on their own. No one has a right to freedom if they want to live under the socialized system of stealing from the rich to pay for the poor to languish. That's why we need to rid ourselves of an oppressive big govt and let people maintain their freedom to live the way they want so long as it does not harm another. No one has a right to take from another and it must change. No one should expect the govt. to feed, educate and clothe their children.....that's the parent's job.

You're the bigot who started making sexist comments about women.
It wasn't sexism, it was the truth. I'm a woman and I agree with him. I brought up part time female physicians who are less qualified because they are PART TIME! I would much prefer to see someone who is committed to their profession full time. One who is attending continuing education courses beyound the minimum. One who is writing in journals and lecturing. Doesn't matter if that person is a woman or a man but THAT is the kind of physician I would see. There are many women who are working part time and I don't think that makes them as good. It's not bigotry, it's reality.

Mr. Sheep reminds me of the mentality of the back marker racers. They consistantly lose, so they bitch and complain about everyone cheating, and their thought process goes like this;
"I'm cheating and I'm getting my ass kicked out there, so that means that the other guys are cheating worse then I am."
Fools like them think that everyone else is just like them, and acts like them, or everyone else should be and act like them. They then set out to make everyone else "equal" to them through legislation.
It's the same bullshit that socialists have always regurgitated since the dawn of time ... they do not trust themselves to police themselves and they give into their urges and animalistic impulses at the drop of a hat. They are followers and not leaders, and therefore think that Big Brother is the only one that can save them from themselves. They fail to realize that in their zeal to make everyone "equal" they overlook the fact that the direct consequence of their misunderstanding of human nature, is that the progress and production of the "collective" as a whole ... drops. It does so in each of every time it has been implemented and tried.

I agree that parents are responsible for their children. So can I get a tax refund for all the money taken from me to educate other people's kids?

Oh baloney.

I heard his same sexist b.s. in the military about women getting special treatment or time off to have babies or being unreliable etc.

In effect BS. The company was their employer, as well as yours.
No, you would have been fired, the corporation would have been sued.

I'll admit, I don't know a thing about back marker racers but allow me to comment on socialism. Even in a socialistic society, everyone is NOT equal. There are the elite who enjoy power and control over the masses. The masses ARE equal and they are the majority while in captivity. Oscumma and friends have opened socialism's floodgates which is why there are more who have fallen into poverty. It's why the middle class is evaporating and the elite are becoming more powerful. It's why AMERICANS have swallowed the KoolAide about socialized medicine. It's why the elite have been creating divisiveness among the people. It's why they target specific groups who are not able to be independent because they have been enslaved by the govt. pacifiers. When you pit American against American and bring in illegals....you will have a soup that will boil over and burn. We are all pawns on the 'Elite's' chessboard. I hope American's figure out how to play before it's too late.

Back up your statement. I'm not talking about the military, I'm talking about part time physicians, part time dentists, part time vets and for that matter ANY part time professional. There is nothing sexist about it. If a guy chooses to pursue a part time career in any of those fields, I would say the same. You want to turn it into something sexist just like you want to turn everything into racism when it has nothing to do with it. You're a fraud and a liar. You're also a supreme nutjob.

As for the military, I'm not sure what you mean. If a woman is competent, hire her. If she thinks she has a right to take a job that she is not physically capable to perform, she should not expect to be given that position. That's revolting and an insult to the gender. If she chooses to take time off to have kids for several years, she shouldn't expect to come back with her job held. That is inefficient and costly. She must make a decision to either have kids or choose a job that will accomodate her needs...not one who has to lose money to accomodate hers.

I am an egalitarian. Equal pay for equal work. No special treatment because you are black, white, pink, gay, straight, male, female, fat or thin.

This is where I agree. I don't think property taxes should fund schools....parents should. Local businesses should have the OPTION to donate. Eliminate the waste and fluff- that would be more than possible. Entitlements should be wiped out across the board. Rid taxpayers and business of all these ridiculous taxes so they can be free to keep the money they earn.

You are correct. People are far from "equal".
That is one song the progressive liberals always sing in disharmony with the truth.
They attempt redistribution of wealth so all have "equal" amounts of money. They stir up class envy and encourage coveting what others have and say to their "constituents" that it is OK to take from those they percieve to have more than they do.
They lie and try to convince the masses - especially the black community - that "equality" has to do with tangible things, tools, stuff, items, property, and so forth. They play to the weaknesses of the animal side of the human and ignore the law side of the civil man.
"Equality" has to do with the other side of the human being ... the civil side, where we make rules and boundaries that are in written form and not in the form of pisssing on a rock to mark our territory. We civil humans do this to guarantee that no matter how unequal we all are in reality of position, income, and toys, that we remain with equal due process under the law.
