What the hell is "reverse discrimination"? By definition, it would be the exact OPPOSITE of discrimination, or a complete inclusion of all people. Your attempt at justification of racism is ludicrous and laughable.<quoted text>
Most people would agree that slavery is an abomination. And racism is also. But you seem to think that revers racism is okay. Why? Racism is racism and all it does is promote more racism
When I joined the Army I wanted to fly medivac and I did from 1975-77 in Hawaii. But in 1980 when I wanted to go on to another medivac assignment I was told no.
You see, female Army pilots could not fly combat missions so they were taking up many of the medivac slots so the Army told me I could go to a Cobra assignment. Yep, if you are going to be an Army aviator, you should be able to accept ANY pilot assignment. I was not interested in flying attack helicopters but I was able to get into Chinooks where I spent my last nine years in the Army.
So, it does not matter if you are a female or black or, etc., when you are given priority assignment over non-females, non-blacks, etc. it is still wrong!!!
But you progressives believe in SOCIAL justice which is not real justice because if promotes reverse discrimination! YOU are the racists and the sexists!

I suppose like Sarah Palin Rogue thinks Africa is a country.
In the past ten years, growth in Africa has surpassed that of East Asia. Data suggest parts of the continent are now experiencing fast growth. The amount of growth that has been occurring is comparable or greater to that of the Asian Tiger, Latin Puma markets, gaining them the new nickname, the Lion Markets. The World Bank reports the economy of Sub-Saharan African countries grew at rates that match or surpass global rates

Another lie. You said you never employed another or other monikers. What a sad lying joke you are.

We did not invent slavery, to be sure. But what we certainly did was to ignore our own principles in the Declaration, which had said that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..." and that all men had the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
While slavery is evil in all countries, it is exceptionally evil for a country that held that "all men are created equal" and that all men had the right to liberty, to hold people in slavery.
To do so required a kind of magical thinking, that black people were not human, and hence did not have the rights specified by the Declaration. But, since even well before the Civil War it was obvious that blacks were performing complex tasks and tending to the children of whites, it was obvious that they were human. So the institution of slavery in the USA was obviously something entirely different from that in Roman times etc, when the losers in wars became slaves and that was that.
We are not specially evil. But we ought to be specially embarrassed and shocked by our history, and to do in the future everything that we can to make sure that all men are treated equally.
You need to go back and READ ALL of your US History. Then LEARN from iT.
THEN maybe ... you wouldn't just piece-meal IT on here! To try to make the US LQQK bad!
The United States of America "has proved" itself to BE an exceptional Nation! Time and time again!
For OVER 200 Years This REPUBLIC has STOOD
Now we have someone in office, TRYING their DAMNEDEST to make it like others!
NOT gonna happen!
Take that back...
MIGHT happen ...
We WILL Prevail!!!!!!
and RISE like the Phoenix ...
and BE "great" once again!
BET ON IT!:)

In an astounding feat of moronic intransigence, the GOP filibustered the appointment of the US Public Printer by President Barack Hussein Obama.
I bet Rogue Bumpkin has a fantastic story about why that was necessary because socialism something something.

The First Amendment and God
Less well known, in fact all but unknown, is the postamble:
Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth. In Witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names.
Thus, when the states ratified the Constitution, they were affirming and acknowledging within the Constitution the existence of God and specifically Jesus Christ. This acknowledgement is also given in many of the states ratification messages.
Ratification of the Constitution included the following words:
Delaware: on the seventeenth day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven

Did you know that Arabic does not have the letter "P" in its alphabet?
What is the significance of that, you ask. I will tell you what the significance of that is.
The significance is that Palestine, or more properly Palaestina, is a Greco-Roman word.
The Arabic pronunciation is "Falastin"
Let me reiterate that. Palestine is not an Arabic word, but rather has its origin in Latin.

America is a form of concentrated human tragedy
"A bunch of stumped people, who can be held together only on the base of either the financial constituent, or war," well-known Russian writer Maria Arbatova said about the United States. The writer sat down with Pravda.Ru editor-in-chief Inna Novikova to share her opinion of the country that so eagerly tries to dictate its will to Russia.
"You have recently returned from America. Do you think that the U.S. has the same problems, like in Russia, in the relations between people of different nationalities and different mentalities?"
"In fact, I have a suggestion. Let's send everyone to America, so that people would return as patriots from there. America is positioned as a tolerant country, but, in fact, I realized its national idea: "You had no past." This is a gathering of stumped people, who can be held together only on the base of either the financial constituent, or the desire to wage war somewhere."
i am american, the people here are begullied and misinformed, it is a police state that grows ever day. by writing this i place myself at risk. but my country as been over run by elitist there is no doubt. and yes u can go to jail for not have a fishing liceses. but not for being on a pulic beach to bath in the sun, now try and sleep there and off to jail u will go. and if u hitch a ready in virgina u will find yourself in in jail for a while. before u go too court,and get fined for trying to catch a ride. that is the truth.
We already have a controlled press and dumbed down sheep falling for its propaganda as this past election shows. A totalitarian regime is only a matter of time.

Out of the 35 states at least 10 have a real chance to secede from the United States. If this does not happen, the conflict between the "socialist" government and conservative separatists could drag on for a long time, leading to mass protests and other sad events.
The most problematic state, as mentioned above, is Republican Texas. Over 100 thousand people support its petition for independence.
The petition stated that the U.S. was experiencing serious economic difficulties as the federal government was unable to cope with the reform of the internal and external spending. According to the authors of the petition, the rights of the Americans were egregiously violated. Today, stable and balanced economy of Texas is fifteenth in the world. The ideas of the founding fathers are no longer reflected in the actions of the government, and Texas intends to defend its rights and freedoms through secession from the United States.

FAREWELL AND THANKS TO RON PAUL
Exclusive: Joseph Farah shares favorite excerpts from congressman's swan song
Well done, good and faithful servant.
Those are the words every Christian longs to hear from our Lord when our work on Earth is complete.
Seldom does the phrase apply to Americas public servants the men and women we elect to represent us in Washington or in our state capitals.
But they more than apply to one retiring member of the House of Representatives Dr. Ron Paul.
Excessive government has created such a mess it prompts many questions:
Why are sick people who use medical marijuana put in prison?
Why does the federal government restrict the drinking of raw milk?
Why cant Americans manufacturer rope and other products from hemp?
Why are Americans not allowed to use gold and silver as legal tender as mandated by the Constitution?
Why is Germany concerned enough to consider repatriating their gold held by the FED for her in New York? Is it that the trust in the U.S. and dollar supremacy beginning to wane?
Why do our political leaders believe its unnecessary to thoroughly audit our own gold?
Why cant Americans decide which type of light bulbs they can buy?
Why is the TSA permitted to abuse the rights of any American traveling by air?
Why should there be mandatory sentences even up to life for crimes without victims as our drug laws require?
Why have we allowed the federal government to regulate commodes in our homes?
Why is it political suicide for anyone to criticize AIPAC ?
Why havent we given up on the drug war since its an obvious failure and violates the peoples rights? Has nobody noticed that the authorities cant even keep drugs out of the prisons? How can making our entire society a prison solve the problem?
Why do we sacrifice so much getting needlessly involved in border disputes and civil strife around the world and ignore the root cause of the most deadly border in the world-the one between Mexico and the U.S.?
Why does Congress willingly give up its prerogatives to the Executive Branch?
Why does changing the party in power never change policy? Could it be that the views of both parties are essentially the same?
Why did the big banks, the large corporations and foreign banks and foreign central banks get bailed out in 2008 and the middle class lost their jobs and their homes?
Why do so many in the government and the federal officials believe that creating money out of thin air creates wealth?
Why do so many accept the deeply flawed principle that government bureaucrats and politicians can protect us from ourselves without totally destroying the principle of liberty?
Why cant people understand that war always destroys wealth and liberty?
Why is there so little concern for the executive order that gives the president authority to establish a kill list, including American citizens, of those targeted for assassination?
Why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians who run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people? Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when its wrong.
Why is it is claimed that if people wont or cant take care of their own needs that people in government can do it for them?
Why did we ever give the government a safe haven for initiating violence against the people?
Why do some members defend free markets, but not civil liberties?
Why do some members defend civil liberties but not free markets? Arent they the same?
Why dont more defend both economic liberty and personal liberty?
Why are there not more individuals who seek to intellectually influence others to bring about positive changes than those who seek power to force others to obey their commands?
