Actions speak louder than words.
It is right and noble to honor a man who believed a man's character should not be judged by the color of his skin.
Too bad most liberals apparently don't believe that.
Otherwise, race would never have been part of the dialogue - started and perpetrated by liberals.
In a documentary entitled "Citizen King," the leader is shown speaking to a church audience, as he prepared his nonviolent army of poor people for Washington.

It didn't cost the nation a penny to open lunch counters. It didn't cost the nation a penny to give us the right to vote," he said. "But it will cost the nation billions to feed and house all of its citizens. The country needs a radical redistribution of wealth."

Some of King's closest aides are baffled at the argument that King opposed affirmative action policies. They say the public record is clear: King openly supported such policies.

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the group he led, created a program called Operation Breadbasket that called for companies to hire a certain number of blacks. In King's book "Why We Can't Wait," he recounts his travels to India where he expressed approval for that government's attempts to remedy the historical discrimination of "the untouchables" through compensatory programs.

King also argued that just as the nation had given preferential treatment to soldiers returning from World War II through the GI Bill, it should do the same for blacks in the realms of jobs and education
"A society that has done something special against the Negro for hundreds of years must now do something special for the Negro," King wrote in "Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community."

Conservatives don't like to talk about that version of King, say those who knew the civil rights leader.

What's happening to King's message is part of a larger trend in American history: a deliberate attempt to "misremember" race, says Branch, the civil rights author.

"That is the temptation of American history, to say we don't need to deal with race anymore. We misremembered the Civil War for a 100 years, thinking that it had nothing to do with slavery and that the glorious old wonderful South was like 'Gone with the Wind,' " Branch says.

You're avoiding answering the question. I'll give it to you again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(a source of money is required to answer this question)

You do realize that if this question isn't answered the government collapses and the existence of the United States ends, right?

So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Caught you in another lie, Dweeb.

That's what you get for making shit up.

the EPA had nothing to do with it.

""
Banning Offshore Drilling

In 1969 a Unocal oil rig off the coast of Santa Barbara, California began leaking oil. The extent of the leak, damage to wildlife, and the shoreline caused considerable outrage. The state of California banned offshore drilling shortly after the leak. In 1980, Congress banned offshore drilling in most federally controlled waters. President George H.W. Bush reluctantly banned off shore drilling in 1990 for the western states, Alaska, and the North Atlantic.

Lifting that ban has been a top priority for oil companies in the United States. In 2006, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to lift the ban on offshore drilling for 85% of the nation’s shoreline. The Senate failed to cooperate. Just before leaving office, President George W. Bush lifted the executive order banning offshore drilling and challenged Congress to complete the process with legislation. No action was taken.

It took a Democratic President to change the decade’s long policy. On March 31, President Obama lifted the ban on offshore drilling covering 85% of the nation’s shoreline. The Gulf of Mexico coastline, location of the BP catastrophe, had not been included in the original ban.

There’s been a great deal of discussion and debate surrounding this year’s inaugural festivities. From atheist activists who have worked diligently to discourage the president from using the Bible and God’s name at the event, to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and his recent lambasting of these traditions. In all, there’s been much discussion about removing faith from the historic procession. However, despite the criticism, President Barack Obama, once again, decided to keep the words,

“So help me God” at the end of his oath.

The decision to continue with this statement was made by Obama, himself, despite the fact that there is no legal or constitutional mandate demanding that he utter these words. CNN notes that the tradition surrounding,“So help me God” is one that has been intensely-disputed by historians, however the government’s official account, as per the Library of Congress, is that the words were added in by George Washington during the nation’s first inaugural proceeding.

When I broke the truth here that the Democrats pulled a page directly out of Das Kapital as a plan to finance Obama's government, you ignorantly replied it didn't happen, like the good dupe you are. Lo, and behold, after you showed yourself to be ignorant, the Democrats made public their plan to tax existing assets as earnings - right out of Das Kapital.
When I broke the truth here that the Democrats pulled a page directly out of Machiavelli's "The Prince" to finance Obama's government with trillion-dollar coins the Executive Branch could give to the Fed, thus setting up a separate government from the constitutional government described in the Constitution where the House has full control of spending and revenue (borrowing included in revenue), you ignorantly asserted that didn't happen.
Lo, and behold, it's common news now. And, that idea looks like it got shoved pretty far up Obama's ass.
Now, you're faced with another treasonous fact about Obama and the current administration: They plan to give parts of the United States to China in payment for the debt owed to them.
Here's the information you need to research this treason:
In 2009, the United States of America tendered to China a written agreement which grants to the People's Republic of China, an option to exercise Eminent Domain within the USA, as collateral for China's continued purchase of US Treasury Notes and existing US Currency reserves.
The written agreement was brought to Beijing by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was formalized and agreed-to during her 2009 trip to China.
This means that in the event the US Government defaults on its financial obligations to China, the Communist Government of China would be permitted to physically take -- inside the USA -- land, buildings, factories, etc.- to satisfy the financial obligations of the US government.
Put simply, the feds have actually mortgaged the physical land and property of all citizens and businesses in the United States. They have given to a foreign power, their Constitutional power to "take" all of our property, as actual collateral for continued Chinese funding of US deficit spending and the continued carrying of US national debt.
What’s happening here is very obvious. The Chinese are Barack Obama’s loan shark. He can’t begin to pay them back what he has borrowed from them, so they are willing to take oil deals in partial payment.
Obama plans to give to them federal lands next in payment for their share of the debt.
Let's take a look at the Constitution on this...
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state...."
Obama will have to give part of a state to China to do this.
We'll be in a nation-wide civil war before Obama is removed as dictator, that's for sure.
By the way, how's that Democrat plan to establish an alternate government? You know, the alternate government aside from the government established by the Constitution? You do remember that plan for the President to mint trillion dollar coins and give them to the Fed in exchange for real money to fund the Obama dictatorship, in direct violation of the Constitution.
I think if Obama had read the Constitution at least once in his life he'd know this is using the office of president to rebel against the government of the United States.
It would really help if Obama actually knew what was written in the Constitution.
Das Kapital there is no taxes everything is privately owned.

Killer is posting from his cell. But enough about those stupid ignorant racist trolls; they're all riled up today and that's a good thing. President Obamas inaugeral speech pissed them off plenty! I loved this part:

"Our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law—for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country."
