Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Entitle Meant"

by Raymond Nat Turner



Entitlement meant you worked your asses off

Like a guide dog trained by Pavlov



Entitlement meant drippin' pearls of sweat

No Swiss Bank Account, yacht, or Learjet



Entitlement meant you worked your asses off

No big "bailouts" at the corporate trough



Entitlement meant slavin' nine to five

Not that bankster "too big to fail" jive



Entitlement meant livin' hand-to-mouth

Like in the "right to slave" South



Entitle meant terribly skewed ratio--

Of 400:1 pay, worker to CEO...



Entitle meant more fiscal hanky-panky--

Tiny Tim Geithner-Osama Ben Bernanke



Entitle meant parasites makin' their bones

Off derivatives and sub-prime loans



Entitle meant bribes for political actors--

Cost overruns of klepto-contractors



NO to the "fiscal cliff" and other shams

Of extortionists runnin' Madoff scams!

THE WORk OF LILY LIBERALS AND SAMBO KKK DEMOCRATS Savage School Inequalities Intensify

“Our schools are more segregated and less equal than they were in 1968, when Dr. King was taken from us,” said Jonathan Kozol, the educator, activist and author.“This kind of inequality is a theological abomination, a crime against the least of us,” said Kozol, author of the 1991 classic Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools.

Obama “Co-Conspirator” in Austerity Schemes

“Austerity is, essentially, shifting of the burden of the economic depression from those who created it onto the working class and the poor,” said activist Eric Draitser, who has been organizing anti-austerity forums.“This is a concerted attack by financiers and the ruling class against the legacy of the New Deal.” President Obama is “a co-conspirator and collaborator with these austerity schemes.” Draitser is publisher of the web site StopImperialism.com .

MLK vs. Obama

Barack Obama and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have nothing in common, politically, according to Omali Yeshitela, chairman of the Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations.“The only connection they would have in the real world be that Dr. King would be leading the demonstrations against the Obama regime, if he were alive,” said Yeshitela. Obama has “extended the war machine beyond anything in recent memory.”

The terrorists are not part of any nation's military, although it is well known that they had state support.
If any Arab country that supported them had stepped forward and claimed them as theirs, then they would automatically qualify for the rights of the Geneva Convention. However, all the Arab countries that supported them pretended they didn't exist and they had never even seen them after Bush began kicking the terrorists' asses.
Their own homies threw them into the garbage.
So, what do you do now? You have these terrorists that no country claims and gives them the protection of the Geneva Convention, and they are part of a huge international terrorist network at war with the United States and have already murdered 3000 americans....
You beat them with a lead-filled rubber hose and pull their fingernails out with pliers and electrocute their balls and cut their ears off and pull their teeth and cut their fingers off ... and waterboard them until they tell you everything they know so you can kill the rest of them.
Period. End of statement. No regrets.
Makes anyone's skin cringe doesn't it.

Now, kindly tell us the answers. Here's the post again for your convenience:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Since the answers are so logical and obvious, you should have no problems just jotting down them for us.
A simple location is required to answer the first question.
A simple source of money is required to answer the second question.

Don’t You Dare Conflate MLK and Obama
If Dr. King were alive today, there might be a Black president, but he or she would certainly not get MLK’s support if he behaved like Barack Obama. Dr. King would oppose Obama’s wars,“make Wall Street scream, and attempt to render the nation ungovernable under the dictatorship of the Lords of Capital.”



Don’t You Dare Conflate MLK and Obama

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“Had King survived, his break with Obama would have come early.”

Back in 1964, under prodding from a BBC interviewer, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. predicted that a Black person might be elected president “in 25 years or less.” Four years later, shortly before his assassination, King confided to actor/activist Harry Belafonte that he had “come to believe we're integrating into a burning house." We now see that the two notions are not at all contradictory. At least some African Americans have achieved deep penetration of the very pinnacles of white power structures – integrating the White House, itself – while conditions of life for masses of Black folks deteriorate and the society as a whole falls into deep decay.

The fires lit by the “giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism” that Dr. King identified in his 1967 “Beyond Vietnam: Breaking the Silence” speech are consuming the world, now stoked by a Black arsonist-in-chief. Domestic poverty hovers only a fraction of a percentage below the levels of 1965, with “extreme poverty” the highest on record. Black household wealth has collapsed to one-twentieth that of whites. Today, more Black men are under the control of the criminal justice system than were slaves in the decade before the Civil War, according to Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow.

The intervening years have shown that Dr. King’s 1960s visions were not in conflict: the rooms at the top floors of the national house may have been integrated, but the building still burns.

At least whats-his-face on the Today Show exposed his hypocrisy on the recent Al Jazeera business deal and put him on the hot seat.
What he was saying if you bothered to listen, places like Australia which had record breaking temps for a month or more with fires burning everywhere. 3 weeks on and half the country is flooded with record breaking downfalls. This is climate change in action EXACTLY what big Al predicted in his movie. The fact that you and the rest of the heads in the sand Republicans want to put it down to anything else BUT climate change because then you would have to admit being wrong. Keeping in mind these things are rated once in a 100 yr events by insurance companies yet they are every f...g year now. Which means very soon, insurance will just not be affordable. What's even sadder, it's probably too late to address it.

what have you got? a right wing blog/FOX/Rush?
Right, and that the bipartisan senate immigration committee, which includes everyone's favorite expert Mark Rubio has adopted that number which is down from 12.5 million which was the previously agreed upon number back in the Mel Martinez era.

I think it's lower, probably in the 8.5 million range due to the exodus which followed the residential and commercial construction collapse along with the Obama Admins increased deportations. If one takes the time to go state by state__the totals are even below my guess__although in fairness California is tough to call because there are just so many (Latinos and Asians) coming and going.

Illinois is preparing to issue drivers licenses to undocumented joining Washington State and New Mexico. Utah provides the undocumented with temporary permits. They gotta get to work eh?

The deepening crisis of capitalism, the triumph of Wall Street finance over industrial capital, the increasing imperial reversion to international lawlessness in a desperate bid to maintain global supremacy – all this was predictable under the laws of political economy. Had the assassin’s bullet not found him, Dr. King would have continued his implacable resistance to these unfolding evils, rejecting Barack Obama’s invasions, drones and Kill Lists with the same moral fervor and political courage that he broke with Lyndon Johnson over the Vietnam War. Absolutely nothing in King’s life and work indicates otherwise.

“The very notion of a grand austerity bargain with the Right would have been anathema to MLK.”

One school of thought holds that corporate servants like Obama could not have taken root in Black America if Dr. King, Malcolm X and a whole cadre of slain and imprisoned leaders of the Sixties had not been replaced by opportunistic representatives of a grasping Black acquisitive class. In any event, had King survived, his break with Obama would have come early. Surely, the Dr. King who, in his 1967 “Where Do We Go from Here” speech called for a guaranteed annual income would never have abided Obama’s targeting of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in the weeks before his 2009 inauguration. Forty-five years ago, King’s position was clear:“Our emphasis must be twofold: We must create full employment, or we must create incomes.” The very notion of a grand austerity bargain with the Right would have been anathema to MLK.

Were Martin alive, he would skewer the putative leftists and their “lesser evil” rationales for backing the corporatist, warmongering Obama. As both a theologian and a “revolutionary democrat,” as Temple University’s Prof. Anthony Monteiro has described him, MLK had no problem calling evil by its name – and in explicate triplicate. His militant approach to non-violent direct action required him to confront the underlying contradictions of society through the methodical application of creative tension. He would make Wall Street scream, and attempt to render the nation ungovernable under the dictatorship of the Lords of Capital. And he would deliver a withering condemnation of the base corruption and self-serving that saturates the Black Misleadership Class.

He would spend his birthday preparing a massive, disruptive action at the Inauguration.

But your Republiclowns have approved a framework for immigration reform.

Y'know, McCain, Graham, Rubio??

The newly converted??

Your own Party has declared your views 'irrelevant'.

Here on Topix, we've known that for a year.

So how long will it be before you become a reform supporter??

Your party has given you the order.

Then he shouldn't have any problem deporting all the illegal aliens not working, right?
How many illegal aliens are here?
What source are you using to get that number?
How about we put that number into any bill that comes through to cap any conditions given to illegal aliens?
Better yet, how about we give every illegal alien working a H1b work visa.
And, we deport every illegal alien not working.
Then, we stop paying people to not do the work these illegal aliens are here doing. Get a job or starve. If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens doing the work we're paying you to not do. Take one of those jobs.
... problem solved, and no new law was required to do it that way.

Look, dumb carol, nobody really wants to know about your personal life--pathetic or otherwise--but you can't "attest" for anyone but yourself, let alone George Dumbya Bush or your father...you keep tying that millstone around your neck minute by minute.

What Would Dr. King Do?

Were he alive today, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would “highlight Wall Street criminality,”“war crimes coming out of the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department” and “the social crimes of the New Jim Crow, the criminal justice system, which is itself criminal,” said Dr. Cornel West, of the Union Theological Seminary, in New York.“Martin would be very, very sad when he looked at the fraudulent character of Black leadership, the massive capitulation to the White House.”

The slain civil rights leader “would be in righteous opposition to the American regime of austerity and war, and to a president and his administration that is in the vanguard of it,” according to Dr. Anthony Monteiro, professor of African American Studies at Temple University, in Philadelphia.“King was, at the end of the day, a democratic revolutionary. He was calling for an uprising to the forces of injustice and war,” said Monteiro. In contrast, today’s “Black petit bourgeoisie are more interested in their own comfort than they are in social justice.”
