Barack Obama, our next President

Since the 1960s, blacks have experienced a decline in legitimacy and educational achievement and increases in criminal activity and drug abuse. But they have gained Obamaphones and a token in the White House.
So, what's not to like?
Even the token is shifting his focus from blacks to homosexuals.
1070 - 31% of blacks had a high school education

Today its over 84%

I guess that makes you a liar once again.

BTW, that decline in legitimacy must be just in your mind. The minds that populate the racist right.

In the early automobile era, gasoline was considered a 'bridge' fuel.

They didn't think there was enough oil available to power lots of cars, so many believed that corn ethanol would be the fuel of the future.

Of course, John D. Rockefeller knew better, and became the world's wealthiest man by building Standard Oil, which Teddy Roosevelt tore apart as a trust-buster.

At one point Ford was considering controlling the auto "and" auto fuel industries thus his interest in corn alcohol.

You just don't tell the whole story.
Northern and Western Democrats supported civil rights as did Republicans. However, major civil rights bills in the 1950s and 60s generally depended more on Republican than Democratic support in Congress.
Conservatives in the GOP were split at the time – few lent their support to the Thurmond/Wallace/Bull Connor faction which was almost exclusively the province of the Democrats but some objected on other grounds to the pace and methods used to push civil rights, most famously Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 on constitutional grounds (Goldwater had supported other civil rights measures and would again). But those were disagreements about tactics and not outcomes.
Today, the old Dixiecrat resistance is thoroughly discredited. Most conservatives today want no part of the objections raised by Goldwater and his allies at the time.
The Nixon-era institution of affirmative action and the 1970s controversies over school busing remains much more controversial. Very few of the racially charged issues of the past 47 years had anything to do with legal equality for African-Americans.
On the GOP side, a number of the old Dixiecrats, led by Thurmond himself, switched parties. Ex-Dixiecrats like Thurmond and Jesse Helms abandoned their prior support for segregation along with the party they had left behind.
It's just that liberals can't seem to figure out which is worse. The entire Southern bloc of Democrats voting against civil rights since the Civil War up until the mid 1960s or Nixon voting for busing to keep peace in the south even though he was against it personally.
Or two Dixiecrats leaving behind the Democrat Party to join the side of Republicans changing their views on segreation in the process and Robert Byrd belonging to the KKK.
You can't dismiss an entire legacy of Southern Democrats because of an election strategy by Republicans to win the Southern states based on family values and gun ownership rights.
Or one controversial vote by one Republican president who did more to advance civil rights than any Democrat.
You just can't. If blacks can turn their backs that quickly on the party who had steadfastly been loyal to them because of one vote over busing, they need to take a long and hard look at the party who would have oppressed their rights to this day if the Southern bloc of Democrats had gotten their way.
We're talking about racism in the modern Republican Party which has nothing to do with one vote on busing. Those very southern racists you talk about now make up the Republican base.

I know Democrats today do not represent the Southern Democrats in the past.
They are just perpetrating racism as an issue for political gain.
Are they not?
Look up the voting record on the Civil Rights of of 1964.

You will find Democrats in the South voted against while those outside the South voted for it.

Republicans from the South voted against it while Republicans outside the South voted for it.

LEARN that it was regional & not political party.

Do yourself a favor & get informed.

Do you agree with Rev. Wright who, only a few months ago, said "white supremecy rules world policies"?

I think that the only way to stop the complete takeover of the governement by liberals would be to attack the spending side by other means.
Instead of revamping Social Security perhaps we could simply work to lower prohibitions on tobacco and condom use? If more of these liberals could be encouraged to smoke heavily and rut like wild animals without any sort of protection that would surely achieve the same ends with less fuss.
What prohibitions are there on tobacco and condom use? Does smoking cause people to rut like wild animals?

WICHITA, Kan (Reuters)- Closed since 2009 after its doctor was murdered, one of the country's most embattled abortion clinics is scheduled to reopen this spring over renewed objections of abortion opponents.
Controversy over the clinic in Wichita, Kansas is building as the country observes the 40th anniversary on Tuesday of the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in at least the first three months of pregnancy.
An abortion rights group bought the building where George Tiller was among only a few doctors in the country to do late-term abortions before he was gunned down at a Wichita church. Scott Roeder is serving a life sentence after testifying that he killed Tiller, 67, to stop abortions.
Tiller owned the clinic and his family decided to close it down and withdraw from any involvement there after his murder.
Anti-abortion groups are trying to block or delay the reopening of the clinic through a rezoning petition and complaints to the city that permits haven't been issued as required for the clinic's indoor remodeling.
"Once they get the permits we'll be off to the next thing - we will try to persuade contractors not to work there," said Cheryl Sullenger of the Wichita chapter of Operation Rescue.
The attempted roadblocks cast in front of the clinic before it even opens are not discouraging leaders of the organization that bought the building, where abortions, family planning and other gynecological care would be offered.
"We will continue to move forward to see that women have their rights," said Julie Burkhart, who worked with Tiller's clinic for eight years on political and legislative issues. "It's incredibly important because women in this region need access to good medical care."
Since the clinic closed, women in the Wichita area have had to travel at least 150 miles to Oklahoma City or Kansas City for abortions.
Burkhart directs a non-profit organization called Trust Women Foundation Inc, which now owns the single-story, nearly windowless clinic building that sits between a busy highway and a neighborhood of single-family homes.
Tiller's murder spawned formation of the organization with the goal of reopening a clinic, Burkhart said. It took 2-1/2 years to plan a new clinic, look for possible locations and raise money to buy the building, she said. Burkhart is braced for persistent opposition.
"This is absolutely one of the most difficult things I have had to do in my life," said Burkhart, 46. "I have a lot of brave people working with me."
CONSTANT PICKETING
The clinic was the site of constant picketing. Burkhart's home has also been picketed and she has been referred to as a killer in anti-abortion brochures, she said.
http://news.yahoo.com/controversial-kansas-ab...
Odds some rightwinger guns her down?
There are only four doctors left in the US who are willing to perform third trimester abortions, Tiller's claim to fame.

Again, you don't tell the whole story. Black Americans were already swayed to the Democrat Party by the late 1930s because of the New Deal and the Great Depression. Thousands had already fled the South by the 1960s.
Accusing the Republican Party of being against civil rights based on one Republican who supported the Constitution AND civil rights but believed it to be a states' rights issue instead of the federal government's is just part of the Big Lie and dismisses decades of legislation passed by Republicans precisely to ensure civil rights.
The majorty, if not all, of black Americans had already switched loyalites when big government came on the scene in the 1930s.
That's the problem of why we are where we are today. Not one Republican who has become the liberal's "straw man" to excuse their own sins of the past.
Like the PATRIOT Act? Real champions of liberty ya got there.
