Barack Obama, our next President

WASHINGTON -- At a recent campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Mitt Romney expressed amazement at a gas station's touch-screen sandwich-making process.
"I went to a place called Wawa's today, you ever been there?... You press a little touchtone keypad, you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there's your sandwich. It’s amazing,” Romney said.

Approximately 5 to 10 percent of the white population fell into the fourth class. Poor whites were landless tenant farmers and poor laborers who went from job to job as available. The majority of this class was illiterate and performed the lowest level of jobs. Although excluded from the ranks of the social, political, and economic elite, poor whites, like yeomen, supported the basic social hierarchy established by the planter class because it protected their position as higher than that of the enslaved. Many common whites not only verbally supported the slave system, they also served on slave patrols and county militias that guarded against slave revolts and tracked down runaways. When the time came for war, this class filled the Confederate ranks and fought to defend the very system that kept them at the bottom of the white social order. This is perhaps one of the reasons the Civil War has been described as “a rich man’s war, but a poor man’s fight.”

North Carolina had a rather large population of free African Americans — 30,463 in 1860 — who constituted the fifth social class. Approximately 10 percent of the black population fell into this category. The most sizable free black communities were in Wilmington, New Bern, and Halifax. Over two-thirds of this class was mulatto, that is, persons of mixed race. Although some blacks traced their freedom back to the Revolution, or even before, most obtained liberty from manumission or emancipation by their owner. In the wake of Nat Turner’s rebellion and fears of other insurrections, freedom by emancipation became more difficult by mid-century, with new laws restricting where freed slaves could live and setting high costs to the owner for freeing them. Some enslaved people purchased their own freedom or freedom for family members. Owners sometimes hired out trusted slaves, allowing them to keep a portion of their salary. If an enslaved person could save enough funds and the owner was agreeable, freedom could be purchased.

Remember to say hi to the attendant, that's about as close as you will come to mainstream America.

Speaking of Dominos, that new commercial they are running with the hand made pizza dough with the lady and her bare hands and finger nails pressing the dough, put some gloves on for cryin' out loud. Homer knows how many of you don't wash your hands after using the bathroom without mentioning any names.

Needless to say Homer will be passing on the hand made pizza from Domino's.

DESTROY THE EDUCATION FOR BLACKS THANKS WHITE LIB DEM Common whites saw free blacks as direct competition for jobs and trade, leading to even more tension between the races. Increasing legal restrictions prevented true freedom of movement by free blacks and prohibited their associations with enslaved blacks. Despite these restrictions, many free blacks, such as skilled cabinet maker Thomas Day of Caswell County or businessman John Caruthers Stanley of New Bern, lived productive lives. Some, like Stanley, even owned slaves themselves, often, but not always, family members. Other free blacks farmed, much like their counterpart white yeoman farmers.

The sixth and lowest social class was that of the enslaved persons. Slaves made up nearly one-third of the state’s total population in 1860. Most served as agricultural labor on farms and plantations. They were found in every county in the state, with a greater concentration in the eastern areas that had the most suitable soil for growing cash crops, especially cotton. Some businessmen simply saw slavery as an investment, a place to put their capital, which would increase in value. Owning slaves was a sign of wealth, prestige, and power in the entire South and in North Carolina, both east and west. Western counties that produced fewer cash crops had fewer slaves. Although the mountain climate and terrain prevented the development of large plantations, such as those in the eastern part of the state, slavery was, nevertheless, a vital part of the mountain economy. The major distinction in slavery in the west was the diversity of economic activity it supported. Enslaved men and women often worked alongside the mountain farmer/owner, in thriving tourist businesses such as hotels and resorts, in mines, and in livestock endeavors.

DEMOCRATS The yeoman have been intensely studied by specialists in American social history, and the history of Republicanism. The term fell out of common use after 1840 and is now used only by historians.

Yeomen in the South are often called Plain Folk of the Old South. They were the middling white Southerners of the 19th century who owned few slaves or none. They played a major role in the history of the Ante Bellum South, although they were less influential than the planters.

Historians have long debated the social, economic and political roles. Terms used by scholars include "common people", "yeomen" and "Crackers."

Down from 64 in 2004__amazing what a black POTUS can accomplish eh? Actually it was the Bush admin that introduced the USDA capital equip incentive that gave major tax deductions on "trucks" weighing over 5500lbs. Escalades and Navigators qualified as did the big Lexus. Those earning in the 300K up range could deduct the entire purchase price over 3 years.

Audi's are good cars with little resale value__same way with the pricier VW's__lease it or you'll regret it.

Cadillac has always been a great car and the new ones are really sharp, the STS and the CTS; had an STS for a rental and loved it.
as noted, elderly Jews like you favor Cadillacs....

middle class folks have always steered away from Cadillacs as ostentatious displays of vulgar wealth.....

the State Department outsourced security for the Benghazi consulate
Let's pause right there, and "politicize" a little more.
Liberals are always going on about the evils of "outsourcing" and "offshoring" – selfish vulture capitalists like Mitt Romney shipping jobs to cheap labor overseas just to save a few bucks. How unpatriotic can you get!
So now the United States government is outsourcing embassy security to cheap Welshmen who, in turn, outsource it to cheaper Libyans. Diplomatic facilities are U.S. sovereign territory – no different de jure from Fifth Avenue or Mount Rushmore.
So defending them is one of the core responsibilities of the state. But that's the funny thing about Big Government: the bigger it gets, the more of life it swallows up, the worse it gets at those very few things it's supposed to be doing.
So, on the first anniversary of 9/11 in a post-revolutionary city in which Western diplomats had been steadily targeted over the previous six months, the government of the supposedly most powerful nation on Earth entrusted its security to Abdulaziz Majbari, 29, and his pal, who report to some bloke back in Carmarthen, Wales.
In the days before the attack, Joe Biden had been peddling his Obama campaign slogan that: "Bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive."
The first successful terrorist attack on U.S. sovereign territory since 9/11, and on the very anniversary and by al-Qaida-linked killers, was NOT helpful to the Obama team.
And so the nature of the event had to be "politicized":
Look, over there – an Islamophobic movie! "Greater love hath no man than this," quoth the President at Chris Stevens' coffin, "that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Smaller love hath no man than Obama's, than to lay down his "friend" for a couple of points in Ohio.

If the loons on the left could refute Obamas post birth abortion rights speech, they would. In civilized society, the killing of live human beings is called infanticide, for Obama, it's a mothers right to choose.

They are on target about the economy, the straw man of war on women has been a dismal failure. Women are leaving the Obama camp in favor of the prospect of better jobs and economic stability offered by Romney. Now that the Lybian debacle and coverup can no longer be ignored by the media, voters are looking at a basically untruthful, deceptive administration and questioning the worthiness of Obamas leadership.
