I don't understand why the blacks can call each other the N word, but when a white person says it, it has a whole new meaning. They didn't change the meaning of the N word like they have the meaning of Gay too, did they?
I mean, when I was growing up the word Gay meant happy go lucky. I heard blacks call the whites the N word, so why do people act like this word is far worse than saying the queen mother of dirty words ?
People need to take a good look at how they act, what they say, and do things. No wonder racism is still a big problem, because people want to keep it alive (for all the wrong resons), and don't listen nor take God's word to not dwell on the past.
Same reason your wife, mother, and sisters can call each other B's, but you (and the rest of the people who know them) should not. "Blacks call whites the N word"? What color is the sky on your planet, Foil Hat Boi.

I think that Barry gave a good speach. Even Mittens was sort of good if not short and you could tell he was forcing it.

<quoted text>You're so hopeless not even your god could save you..."accusing him of murdering someone's wife"??? Borne in false witness about the POTUS lately. Go back with that pious claim that Mittler was just to "good" to run a winning campaign...that's the guy I want dealing with Putin and the terrorists (great grunge band, BTW).
One of his campaign ads did. Obama did not condemn it even when the cheerleaders hammered his press secretary about it after it was discovered it was a complete lie.

When the cheerleaders get mad, you know it must be pretty bad.

<quoted text>Does your biased link explain why the Senate didn't support it?
Perhaps because the GOP in the House tacked on a bunch of legislation to 'redefine rape'?
(They're famous for that sort of thing, you know.)
"MY" biased link? The Daily Beast?

That's pretty funny.

Barack Obama won because his campaign team ran a tremendous ass kicking ground game while the Romney campaign clearly ran smoke and mirrors so convincingly inside the echo chamber of the GOP as to fool a lot of great Republican pundits and Dick Morris.
But Barack Obama also won because the public knew him and stacked him up to a nothing burger on the other side. That nothing burger was not, per se, Mitt Romney, but the GOP as a whole. Consider, if you will, the GOP’s Senate nominees, many, but not all, of whom were backed by the party establishment.
Tommy Thompson, Heather Wilson, Connie Mack, Pete Hoekstra, Linda McMahon, Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock were not exactly founts of rhetorical genius or articulate mouthpieces for conservatism in the way Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz have been.
Add to them Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and the like and the GOP has had very few skilled salesmen for conservative ideas and values. The party then put its fate in the hands of a moderate from Massachusetts who, just trust the GOP, was really more conservative than he let on. Conservatives, many of whom did not buy it, were happy to be loyal soldiers because he was the nominee — a loyalty that too few establishment Republicans send the other way to conservatives when the establishment gets beaten.
In the next two years, conservatives are going to have some fun fights within the GOP to move beyond a cliched defense of free markets into really articulating a vision for defending free markets and what it means. At the same time, it will be forced to deal rationally and charitably with the issue of immigration. And it will have an opportunity to drive out those who now think the time is right to give up on fiscal conservatism or social conservatism. Primary season 2014 should be spectacular.
Compromise? Like hell. We’re going to keep fighting. And we will find someone who actually doesn’t speak conservatism like he learned it from Rosetta Stone last week. For those of you on the left licking your chops thinking this spells doom — the nation just spent $6 billion for the status quo. I’ll take my chances.

Well said Erick.
I agree. Will add that Marco Rubio learned Wednesday morning that the traditional Cuban vote is jackshit going forward.

I saw young people of all shades standing in long lines for hours, some to cast their first vote ever, and those kids will cherish the time they spent bringing their own change to this nation.

Manifest destiny died on Tuesday__finally__good riddance IMO.

Rumor has it that Karl Rove is seeking sanctuary in the 'Witness Protection Program'.

Ann is really miffed @Mitt for wasting so much MormonMoney™ on his vanity.

Ricky Santorum advised... "I told ya so!"

Wild Bill can be heard LOL.

Did anyone notice how much the Romney family photo looks like the 'Children of the Corn' movie poster?

Not really, Romney paid $2.2 million in taxes last year, Big Bird sponged on the govenment dole for $2 million even when he did not need to. Typical liberals.

Wars are generally good for the economy.

This one is easy to win.

<quoted text>Well, if we're gonna sing let's get it right eh? Oh Carol was by Sadaka, a Lebanese from Brooklyn who penned the song for his pal Carol King.
Anka, also a slight of build Lebanese singer/songwriter is from Canada. Sure bet that he didn't play hawkee in high school eh?
Prefer Sadaka myself and "laughter in the rain" one of the all time feelgood songs.
Love Sadaka. One of my personal favorites, of course, is "Oh Carol" but I do love them all. "Laughter in the Rain" is definitely a feelgood song but "Calendar Girl" is too.

Who would've ever thought we had anything in common?
