Psychology would say, you think Powell must be choosing due to race because you choose due to race. Ask your sister.

<quoted text> Mob rule= the 99%, the occupy crowd. The ones who Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and BSNBC all endorsed. How are they linked to the Republican party?
The Constitution - self admittedly in Obama's way as he states in his interview in 2001.
Here's what Obama said:
"If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be OK But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that."
The occupy crowd is not making rules that defy the constitution.
Not that the occupy crowd is a majority anyway,so your point is baseless.

The Supreme court ruled on the affordable health care. Not sure what you wished me to see in what Obama said. If you care to articulate an opinion, go for it. I certainly cannot read your twisted mind.

I appreciate that there are a few honest intelligent republicans remaining and I perceive you are one of them. But I know that 47% of repulbikans are slow and lack the ability to think for themselves. So my job is not to worry about those folks because because they will regurgitate whatever the republikans feed them, regardless of facts, truth,science , math or anything else. In their fantacy world, a vicious vulture captalist cult leader will save them from the evils created by that cult leader's political party... If that were only true.

Good tactic. Think they will be able to put themselves in others shoes to understand the implications of what Mitt said about the 47%?

Is anyone here suggesting America be communist? Why do you argue with the voices in your head? I think there is medication you can get for that.
No one here is asking religion be banned.
No one here is asking for communism.
No one here is asking American not be a capitalistic nation.

I guess you think we are actually for it, but just will not say?

Well Mikey, I ask you to explained communism, you said I did not know what it is so here maybe this will help.
com•mu•nism (kmy-nzm)
1. A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.
2. Communism
a. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
b. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.
Karl Marx said
Religion and communism are incompatible, both theoretically and practically.
Is that why you hate people that believe in God?
The tearing down of people’s religion and beliefs in God is the wanted attempt to tear down Americans and their freedoms. If there is a terrorist that Americans need to worry about it is you.
You added what Marx said,as if it was part of the definition, but clearly that is not part of the definition. It is just what Marx thought about what would be good for communism. Not what communism is.

For the record, I think communism is a poor form of government. I think outlawing religion is wrong, and counter productive. I like religious freedom and promote it regularly.

Do I like religion? Absolutely not, but that does not mean I am not for religious freedom.
Do I wish for religion to end? Yes, but I am smart enough to know, you cannot end religion with force. Religion will likely never be ended, so trying to force its end is futile and counter productive.

Goods are not equally shared in America, and no one is suggesting they be equally shared.
No one is suggesting we have one controlling power.
The government certainly does not control our economy.
So I am not sure what you see in this definition that you think Democrats are asking for. Care to articulate?

israelnationalnews.com They call him Cool Barry and No Drama Obama, but President Barack Obama appears to be losing his nerve in the final fortnight of the race for his second term.

Obama is quoted in an interview for Rolling Stone using the expression "bull****ter" regarding his opponent, Mitt Romney.

In the interview, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley recorded a conversation between Obama and Eric Bates, the executive editor of Rolling Stone. Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old daughter if she had a message for the president, and she said: "Tell him: you can do it."

Obama then replied with a grin: "You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say,'Well, that's a bull****ter, I can tell'.

Asked to explain Obama's remark, spokesman Dan Pfeiffer told reporters that he hadn't seen the article. However, he went on to say: "Trust is a very important part of the election. The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says, and Governor Romney's answers in the debates on domestic issues and foreign policy raise real questions about that."

Civility in any presidential contest is expected, but it is probably more important in this one, because of the race factor. Uncivil language by Romney toward Obama would probably immediately be viewed as a evidence of racism, but by the same token, uncivil language by Obama could cause resentment among white supporters, and also play into the hands of people who oppose him for the wrong reasons.

Been there , done that. My employees enjoy the same benefits I have enjoyed. With only a few individual exceptions over years, they have been most productive and diligent because they share in profits and know their efforts will be rewarded. They trust me and I trust them. There have been times when I continued to pay them even though I was at times revenue neutral or in some few times even losing money. The employees are the most valuable asset because they produce what I am selling. I cannot provide all the benefits you list and remain profitable, but if I get it, so do they.

Well, since you are self proclaimed millionaire, why don't you do your part, create some jobs for those with no/low income, give them benefits (i.e. health care HMO's or PPO's, retirement planning, vision, dental,flex spending, accidental death and dismemberment) and share your wealth first?
Then we will follow your lead after seeing if your venture works first, ok?

The contrast was striking.
I see you now think you know the motivations of someone you never meet. Your post is about as biased as they come.
To accuse Powell of endorsing Obama due to race is an extreme charge. That is why it was so outrageous for Sununu to say it. That is why he retracted it. But of course you can be extreme here, as you are not running for office. But be sure we will judge your comments.
What you said is very demeaning to Colin Powell's integrity.
Yes Obama was before the war in Iraq before he decided as POTUS to carry the war over to Afghanistan. I guess he was against war before he was for it.

As far as being judged a racist by whomever "we" is on here and that very well may be you and that mouse in your pocket, I don't care. I said what I said and I stand by it. If you don't like it, in your words "too damned bad."

I noticed you nor the bleeding hearts on here didn't respond to this article. Could it be, this type of abuse happens by more than only "some"? You get on here and whine about how the children suffer if entitlements benefits are cut. Do children really need liquor from the liquor store, cigarettes, the need to gamble and go on cruises? This was only in ONE state, what about the other 49 states? Think about how much money is pissed away on abuse by "some" in the system if you would add abuse by the other 49 states.

This bleeding heart liberal is more concerned about the $1.3 trillion taken from the treasury by the deadbeat rich each year.
If undeserving deadbeat poor scammers comprise even 10% of the total 0.8 trillion cost of all social programs combined, the rich deadbeat scammers are taking 1625% more money out of the US treasury each year than the poor.
But myopic republikans cannot see the huge amounts taken by the rich because the rich are vacationing in the Caymans on your dime. Meanwhile , you piss and moan about 1/16 th that amount taken by the getto thugs and baby mommas . If you are really concerned about theft from the treasury, you would focus on the real theives, the deadbeat rich. YOu focus on the poor because you buy the horse shit fed to you by the beckerheads..
