Been out and about all weekend.
It's during the week that the routine of working from home takes precedence.
However, neither am I nor have I ever been a racist.
I can't wait for the day when black Americans finally come home to the party who championed civil rights since the Civil War.
You're confusing me with the NAACP who labels half the country as racists for simply wanting to hold government accountable - especially after the bottom fell out.
If McCain had won, the Tea Party movement would still have happened.
Only insecure people who have a hunger for power made it out to be something it wasn't.
Like you, for instance.
If McCain-Palin had won the TeaParty would still have happened???

I know you're dumb but why must you insist on proving it in every post.
Obama won that election.
It's called a mandate.
Or as I like to call it 'a kkkick in the balls' to old white racists and the ignorant party they belong to.
Otherwise...how was the play Mrs Lincoln?
A mandate is when Reagan beat Carter by winning 489 electoral votes to Carter's 49; winning 44 states over Carter's 6 plus DC; and winning 43,903,230 of the popular vote to Carter's 35,480,115. A victory of almost 10%- 9.8%.

It is NOT a mandate when Obama wins by 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206, carried 26 states plus DC to Romney's 24 and winning only 65,899,660 of the popular vote to Romney's 60,932,152. A victory of only 3.8%

You do see the difference, don't you?

All I know is if we, as a nation, sit on our hands and don't take whatever steps are necessary to enforce a no fly zone over Libya when Libyans are calling for the United States to help, we deserve being hated. This is a golden opportunity to prove to the rest of the world that America will not hesitate to use its power to help the underdog who looks to us to act on what we say we believe.
Some are now saying Bush had it right after all believing freedom and democracy in the middle east is the only solution to that troubled part of the world. The people in the middle east are proving that everyday. This president must stop with the empty threats and take action to prove our country's solidarity and enforce a no fly zone to give Libyans a fighting chance...ASAP.

Let's just say I'm "disappointed" with the majority of black Americans because they have been so easily fooled.

Let's also say I'm "displeased" that the majority of black Americans turn on other black Americans who follow the beat of a different drummer and who think for themselves.

But is that racist? No, it isn't.

I'm disappointed and displeased with white liberals too, you included. What do you call that?

Not as funny as 'reducing the deficit' by adding $4.5 trillion to it or reducing health insurance premiums by $2000 a year by increasing them $2500...or more. Or raising taxes on the "top 2%" by actually raising them on 70% of the population. It must be nice lounging around all day, you can honestly say 'your' taxes didn't go up.

Racism is a disease that America has not gotten over.
Statistics prove that blacks are stopped and questioned far more often than whites. Often for nothing, hence the term 'I got stopped for driving while black'.
Even Cambridge has racist cops. BTW, go see what happpened to that particular racist cop. His life is toast. LOL
I expect he knew his white grandmother far better than you , doncha think??
Who are you to question his perceptions of his own family??
An ignorant racist, that's who!!
Your black racism bleeds through like a hole in your underpants does through your hip-hop rags, Doody.

YOU and the Jerk-In-Chief are the problem haranguing the rest of America with cheap racial insults.

The cop involved in the Boston Obama shitpile trained other cops in sensitivity training and he had a black partner cop at the scene that evening who backed him up on everything.

The Boy Messiah stepped in it big time when he opened his big racist mouth on that one. He later exclaimed that it was "..a learning moment for all of us".

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA

He was caught with his pants down but racist scum like you will always try to make a silk purse out of a pig's ear. Count on it.

You're such an idiot!! You have to go back over 30 years to find what you want??

Set the trap, in wanders Lorac!!

Lesee now, Bush lost the popuplar vote in 2000 by 500,000, and won the electoral college 271-266, a mere five votes.

It took the Supreme Court to install him. The same Supreme Court your new BFF calls 'dysfunctional'

It's all perspective, isn't it??

Obama won 332-206 in electoral votes,band roughly 5 MILLION more popular votes.

Compared to Bush, Obama won a resounding mandate over Rmoney!!

Keep bringing up stupid comparisons.

I'll continue to make you look stupid.

Actually, uyou'll make yourself look stupid, I'll merely point it out!!

People were fed up with government out of control.

The Tea Party movement advocated a strict adherence to the United States Constitution, reducing U.S. government spending and taxes, and reduction of the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit.

The movement was considered to be partly conservative, partly libertarian and partly populist.

The theme of the Boston Tea Party has long been used by anti-tax protesters. It was part of Tax Day protests held throughout the 1990s and earlier. By 2001, a custom had developed among some conservative activists of mailing tea bags to legislators and other officials as an act of symbolism.

Why must I always be the one educating you when you're supposed to know everything?

If McCain had threatened to raise the deficit and increase taxes as his "vision" for the economic crisis, you can bet the farm the Tea Party Movement would still have happened.

They may be valid but does not represent where most Americans live. Most Americans have long ago moved past keeping racism in the forefront.
It's Obama and the liberals who keep bringing it up and, in the process, have done more to make it worse than to heal any residual racial divide.
So why do they do that? For what purpose other than to create more derisiveness on the issue and for no other reason than personal and political gain?
I'd really like to know.
The Boy Messiah and his crowd have an agenda but work hard to keep it fuzzy and will muddy the water at each and every chance they get.

How does that saying go? "Ignore most of what they say but carefully watch what they do". The Jerk-In-Chief plays the Race Card very carefully.

Obama is sitting atop the biggest surge in oil and ng production in the USA in history!!
And you, with your lies about working in the oil industry, are totaly unaware of it!!
Here, this is from an antiObama investment guy:
""I've spent three years of my life studying these new events. At first, like you, I didn't believe it was possible. But... after spending more than $100,000 on this research and after spending month after month researching this topic, I'm now certain it is real.
It's going to change everything about the way America works. Most of the changes will be tremendously positive. But there's a huge political risk to what's happening… and you deserve to know about it, the good and the bad.
I'm talking about the oil and natural gas boom that's occurring right now in America.
You see, it has been decades since America witnessed a bona fide oil boom.
Most people won't recognize what's happening today – because they've never seen anything like it. They won't understand how this will change politics in America. They won't understand how it will change our economy.
That's why… to know what's going on today… we first have to take you back in time…
WHAT A REAL OIL BOOM LOOKS LIKE
Today, in the United States, oil companies have recently found more than 20 different shale fields that contain more than 20 billion barrels of recoverable oil each. These fields are all larger than East Texas. Each one of them…
This new oil shale boom is the biggest revolution to the energy sector the world has seen since Spindletop or since East Texas began production. These new gushers are bigger – far bigger – than anything in the history of the oil business in the U.S. They're like finding 20 new Persian Gulf fields… right here in America.
You don't have to take my word for it. That's exactly what the world's leading expert on new oilfields, Dr. Leonardo Maugeri, said about America's shale bounty.“The natural endowment of the initial American shale play, Bakken/Three Forks in North Dakota and Montana could become a big Persian Gulf producing country within the U.S. But the country has more than 20 big shale formations…”
That's why Goldman Sachs, the most dominant investment bank in the world, is now predicting that America – the good ole U.S. of A.– will outpace Saudi Arabia in oil production before the end of this decade.""
http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1210THIRDLI...
One problem America has with all its new found oil and gas is that the major oil companies are shipping it out of here as fast as it can be loaded. US oil imports are the highest since 1949 and in Aug of 2012 Exxon filed for a permit to build the largest Natural Gas shipping port ever in America. The Repubs with their Drill Baby Drill have been suckered while Exxon makes MORE profit shipping our resources than ANY company has ever made in the history of the world in one year.

Are you proud to live in a state that takes more Federal handouts than the state pays in Federal Taxes??
The true 'takers' are the Red States.
Why do Red States bitch about spending when they are the reciepients of more spending than they pay in taxes??

You fear identifying a particular racial group by their skin color even though they themselves call themselves black?

You are also afraid to call your own shadow dark for fear of reprisals.

Ask the NAACP that question and every liberal news commentator on television. They should know. They assigned broad attributes to groups with skin color as an excuse to silence the opposition.

Should I go back and count the number of times just me, myself and I was called a racist at the beginning for daring to criticize Obama's presidency? Not to mention every single conservative on here? By every single liberal?

If a black republican won the presidency, do you think that would happen? I can assure you it wouldn't.

Another myth Carter was neck and neck with Reagan until the Iran hostage business stopped him dead in his tracks. The irony of it was, their release was negotiated by the Carter adminstration but didn't happen until after the election. So Reagan reaped the benefit,& it was the Reagan adminstration that sowed the seeds for the GFC & racked up a $hit load of debt. Yet this is the best you got as an icon for your party. History judges him a whole lot different

It's the same as everything else that defies logic with your lot like climate change. It makes sense that one person peeing in a river is not going to worry anyone too much, but a 100,000 peeing in the same river means you are not going to swim in it, then have a million peeing in it the fish start floating to the top. It's the same with atmosphere, a million cars & factories who cares but a billion makes a huge difference. This is the concept you fail to understand yet grasp onto crap like magnetic pole shifts as a substitution to explain it away.
