I think there should be a Mulatto History Month.
Here's an interesting fact of history:
THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS
The Yellow Rose of Texas is fancifully famous for bedazzling Santa Anna out of his fancy pants at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.
Increasing evidence suggests the story may be true.
On San Jacinto Day, her believers in Texas saloons will lift their glasses to the star of the battle’s sideshow – a mixed-race woman named “Emily” who distracted the tyrant in his tent while Gen. Sam Houston’s grim-eyed skirmishers advanced on the Mexican camp.
Hollering “Remember the Alamo,” the avengers charged across the breastworks, stampeding the nodding Mexicans. The outnumbered Texans, at the cost of nine lives, killed more than 600 soldados and overran the rest.
More than a century after the battle that won Texas independence, pop historians learned about Emily from a long buried footnote and divined that she was a gorgeous seductress.
The story escaped historians for more than a century. In 1956 the University of Oklahoma Press published an account of Texas and its independence written by an English scientist named William Bollaert, sort of a precursor to Michael Palin and Rick Steeves. In his 1842 essay, Bollaert had a footnote on how Houston’s group emerged victorious at San Jacinto, over a much more powerful army:
“The battle of San Jacinto was probably lost to the Mexicans, owing to the influence of a Mulatta Girl (Emily) belonging to Col. Morgan who was closeted in the Tent with G’l Santana, at the time the cry was made ‘the Enemy! They come! They come!’ & detained Santana so long, that order could not be restored readily again.”
Adding to the titillating properties of the story, the song,“The Yellow Rose of Texas” had been rescued from archives about a decade before, and rose to great popularity in the 1950s. Emily, the woman who detained Santa Anna and handed Houston’s forces a battlefield victory, was said to be that “yellow rose.”
Biffle’s column offers details of the work to confirm or refute the story. As it stands, most evidence lends great credence to the story. Today the story is generally accepted by historians, details continue to surface corroborating the key points, and Emily West is celebrated on San Jacinto Day and in museums across Texas.
Does anyone know of another mulatto who achieved prominence in the United States?
Frederick Douglass.

Sheesh, Romney surges in the polls and the stock market takes a dump. Fortunately he is slipping back and the market is starting to right itself again.

Very foretelling of the future if Romney were to win.

On Friday, ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM) and Qatar Petroleum International submitted an application to the Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a permit to export liquefied natural gas (LNG).

.
You Repubs just have NO clue. These RICH bastards that control our resources are selling out America. Natural Gas was suppose to replace oil. NOW LOOK!!!! Exxon is wanting to ship it to China JUST like they do US oil produced. It's not the DEMS or REPUBS that are destroying America, it's these super rich CEOs that are doing it everyday.

Our US oil IMPORTS are at a 20 year LOW.
Our US oil EXPORTS are at a 70 year HIGH.

NYC and the far left don't allow guns in NYC, but guess what?

Another Democrat goes off the deep end.

Stupid liberals will call for more gun control, even though this was a knife.

Marina Krim returned to her West 75th Street home at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday with her third child after nanny Yoselyn Ortega, 50, failed to meet her for swimming lessons with Krim’s two other children, Leo, 2, and Lucia, 6. When she arrived, the children were already dead in a bathtub and Ortega lay injured nearby with apparently self-inflicted stab wounds, according to police.

And the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, it initially was supposed to be more which would have greatly benefitted the American people.

Plus he compromised on extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich as the Republicans were holding the American people hsotage with regards to unemployment benefits.

Spending on White House dinners soars under Obama
October 25, 2012

President Obama has spent far more lavishly on White House state dinners than previous chief executives, including nearly $1 million on a 2010 dinner for Mexico's president, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.

A knowledgeable government official who made the documents available to The Examiner said the extravagant spending seemed unfair with so many Americans out of work.

"It just kind of takes your breath away to see the expenditure of money that has occurred since 2009," the official said.
WALTERS

Gary Walters, who ran presidential household operations for 21 years during Democratic and Republican administrations, before retiring in 2007, told The Examiner the costs reflected in the documents were "excessive. They are high."

You forgot to put content into your post. Here's how it works: First, you select statement(s) that you disagree with and tell us why you disagree.
To avoid looking like an ignorant dupe, search "GM bailout Delphi pension" and actually learn some facts, then tell us what you learned.
For your convenient reference, I'll give you the post again:
Detroit did go bankrupt, you idiot... except for Ford.
You idiots never mention how the non-union retirees from Delphi had to give up their If I'm going to pay for the union pension plan, why didn't Obama also make me pay for It should be overwhelmingly Obama intends to take away from more than just the people he subjectively calls "rich". Looks like he's going to starve everyone who didn't join a union. Typical union thug, Obama is.
Every state that goes right-to-work takes a billion dollars a year away from the union thugs.
You are trying to divert from the fact that through Elliott's thuggish corporate raiding and extortion the Romneys and others profiteered million$ at the expense of the auto industry, its workers and the taxpayers.

THAT is how it works.

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. is independent from the Treasury. According to Rep. David Camp "Thus far, and on the basis of documents produced both by Treasury and third parties, my investigation has found that the PBGC advocated that GM take over both the Delphi hourly and salaried pension plans," Ultimately, it was GM that put money into top up and union pensions.

I doubt it. Tea Party had been shown to be harmful to America.

Half its members are racist. They are all so f*cking stupid they did nothing while Bush killed this country & then, less than a month into the Obama administration, blamed Obama for everything.

America catches up to fred and discovers that any one who opposes the photo voter id law plans to cheat.

CHRISTIAN ADAMS: Pat Moran Relied on Civil Rights Lawyers for Voter Fraud.

Now we know why civil rights groups like the NAACP, ACLU, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights are so upset about election integrity groups like True the Vote monitoring the polls on November 6. Pat Moran gave us a clue yesterday.

Moran revealed on James O’Keefe’s undercover video why these groups have been so dishonest, ugly, and desperate to smear True the Vote and keep them out of the polls.

Simply, the “election protection” operation of these civil rights groups was seen, at least to Moran, as the final step in committing voter fraud.

Moran was the field director of his father’s reelection campaign and worked out of the joint campaign office for President Obama and Democrat Senate candidate Tim Kaine in Virginia.

Let’s look at the full video of Moran that led to his firing from the campaign.

In the video, O’Keefe’s plant tells Moran that he has a pile of names of inactive voters. The plant wants to drive a van around and vote for them. Because Virginia’s voter ID law is a joke, and a utility bill will suffice, the plant intends to use phony utility bills. Moran suggests ways to advance the scheme, including forgery using Microsoft Word.

Enter the “election protection” efforts of the civil rights groups. In case these phony utility bills create a stir inside the polls, Moran has the solution – the army of left-wing lawyers who will be embedded inside the polls from groups like the ACLU, the NAACP, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights.

The plant doubts Virginia “will be really strict about enforcing” the new pseudo-voter ID law.

Moran has just the ticket for questionable phony utility bills – the “election protection” lawyers from the left.... There is no way, of course, to know if the civil rights groups consider themselves cogs in a voter fraud machine. But one thing we do know for sure is that a top Democrat Party field operative does consider them so.

I think we’re going to find that things are rottener than we ever realized.

We still haven't seen the birth certificate. The one the White House staff created and put up on the White House web site is obviously fraudulent.
You know, after Obama gets tossed out on his Marxist ass, we are going to see what's in the vault in Hawaii. If it's not like you say it is, you'd better tighten up your chin strap.

You don't have enough money to play in that game. Well, maybe Obama and Ben Bernanke can print some counterfeit money for you like their idiotic Quantative Easing program does, which is causing our dollar to be weak because every counterfeit dollar Bernanke prints is comingled with the real dollars the economy generates, with the effect of lowering the value of the dollar.

Why doesn't Obama give 5 million dollars to charity?
Perhaps Obama thinks they don't really need 5 million dollars.
That's good news. We can start cutting government spending on those programs if they don't even need that free 5 million dollars being offered.
Thanks for setting that straight.
