Apparently single motherhood is taking its toll on Michelle, since most single mothers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars vacationing in the Bahamas and take their kids skiing in Colorado. Poor Michelle. Maybe if she cut those horrid bangs she could see what an ass her husband is.
there's an answer for that; after all, she admitted on TV that she is a single mom. I think The Obama is pulling a "Bill Clinton" with the California AG.

That's all well and good but you've managed to overlook the fact that I don't cheer lead for the Dems, Libs, or Progressives. I'm merely pointing out the idiocy coming from the right. In case you haven't noticed they've become ridiculous on every issue.
Tell me something the right is proposing that you go along with.
The left may fail at times because of the vast differences in opinions and execution but the right is exactly what you accuse me of:...not to be taken seriously, they don't think ... a corrupt political party thinks for them; read tea party, etc.
And what have I said, brought, underscored that you take issue with, specifically?'Cause I notice your pretty good generalizing your attack. Get specific.
joe -

Since you're all so non-partisan about calling out extremist ideological idiocy, how about letting us know where you come down on this lib prog collectivist/statist view:

"MSNBC Host: Your Kids Belong to the Collective"

"... college professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry says your children are not yours – they are owned by the community."

"“We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” says the professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. Kids belong to whole communities, she insists, and once we realize this we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children."

Insane and dangerous socialist claptrap, I hope you will agree.

You're kidding, right. Your making an equivalency of what Al Sharpton has said and?:
"Obummer is a spook that never had a job done right just like most spooks"
Really? This isn't about sides or parties. This is about how we should all call out this garbage wherever it comes from.
Or was this guy's comment something you think adds to the discussion?
So... Racism from the left is ok, racism from the right is wrong... And this isn't about sides or parties.
Yeah... You're going to have to explain that to me.

So, you've explained yourself quite "nicely". I pointed out an incredibly foul racist statement and you're good with that.

I was quite mistaken about you. You're just another right wing low-life. Peddle your "non-partisan" crap somewhere else,'kay?

Yeah, she's right.

And you should pay better attention to who you use to quote from. Alec Jones (like most far-right slugs) is notorious for re-writing and mis-quoting what people say.

we’ll make “better investments”.

not

we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children."

More drivel from the Good 'Ole Goobers (GOP).

I'm not "good" with racism from the left or the right.

In the posts above, there is a foul racist statement from a left wing moron and another foul racist statement from a right wing moron.

You didn't comment on the lefty racism, but felt the need to be "offended" by the same nonsense from the right wing dolt.

If you think I'm a "right wing low-life," you obviously haven't understood anything I've written. The main theme of my posts is that the republican and democrat parties are both bought and paid for by the same global bankers and international special interests.

Explain to me how exposing the criminality of both parties is right wing please.

Do you actually think that anybody on this thread thinks you are merely pointing out that "republican and democrat parties are both bought and paid for..."? You're kidding, right?

I know, why not tell us who you think speaks for your ideas in the political realm.

Further, I didn't comment on your reference to a left wing racist statement because Rev Al Sharpton didn't make a racist statement. He merely pointed out a political reality. One, the nimrods on the right, know is true but won't admit it. They just leave it to guys like "Neal Caffrey" and "Guinness Drinker" to make the ststement and then make sorry-assed comments like: "So... Racism from the left is ok, racism from the right is wrong... And this isn't about sides or parties.
Yeah... You're going to have to explain that to me."

Consider it explained, Mr. Non-Partisan, hack.

Several posts ago where you agreed with the msnbc host that our children don't belong to us, they instead belong to the collective.

I don't expect you to understand why that is so dangerous and counter to fundamental American principles, it is insanity from the left - so you blindly agree.

I thought there was hope for you joe, but you've regressed back to your "anyone that doesn't agree with me is a right wing hack" mindset.

Maybe some day you'll grow up, but I doubt it.

ok, so Mr. Thin Skinned...... since your spending about 12-16 hours a day with your cable box hooked up to your cerebrum; it's unfortunate for you, you think every crack about Obama is racism. If I state that his Healthcare Bill is dung and provide the proof, then what do you come back with ? a fair debate ? highly unlikely

Anyone who uses the racist term "spook" is a lowlife pig. That would be you.

I see, it turns out you're actually the one who thinks EVERYTHING revolves around politics. I agree with something a pundit says and I'm worshiping the left. You are not only an uncomprehending idiot but you're also full of hypocritical bs.

And maybe you'll grow up and broaden your views. I doubt it.

I thought I had seen the limit of your idiocy, but this puts you in a new league. You are one truly twisted and dangerous fool, joe.

Here's a little light reading about where your sick infatuation with the Collective over the Free Individual leads, with particular reference to the State asserting a superior right to the minds of our children:

Grow up you idiot. Read her quote again. Better yet ask an educated person to explain it to you. She wasn't referring to any State Collective, jerk. She was referring to the implied collective of any community that shares community wide goals. Such as education.

You live in the United States. Which is a collective.

You guys are so far over the edge you can't even see your paranoid idiocy anymore.

None of you suckers are really worth the effort. So I'll try to minimize engagement. I'll just continue to bring interesting facts for "the collective" to ruminate over get hysterical over. While rational visitors of this forum can be entertained. Ta.

Oh, so you agreed with Melissa Harris Perry? You're very confused and don't seem too certain of what you believe. I think you're becoming too "non-partisan", what do you "think"?

I've already stated that our kids belong to us, not to a socialist collective state.

I think you're embarrassed by your own idiocy (rightfully so), and you're now vomiting nonsense.

By the way, what was your opinion of this column?

From Melissa Harris-Perry:

“I believe wholeheartedly, and without apology, that we have a collective responsibility to the children of our communities even if we did not conceive and bear them,” she wrote, saying that her belief in these shared responsibilities reaches across all lines of class, race and politics.

“Of course, parents can and should raise their children with their own values,” she continued.“But they should be able to do so in a community that provides safe places to play, quality food to eat, terrific schools to attend, and economic opportunities to support them. No individual household can do that alone. We have to build that world together.”

Harris-Perry’s essay concluded,“I venture to say that anyone and everyone should know full well that my message in that ad was a call to see ourselves as connected to a larger whole. I don’t want your kids, but I want them to live in safe neighborhoods. I want them to learn in enriching and dynamic classrooms. I want them to be healthy and well and free from fear. I want them to grow up to agree or disagree with me or with you and to have all the freedom and tools they need to express what they believe. And no hateful thing that you say to me or about me will ever change that I want those things for your children.”
