Hastings, the first African-American elected to Congress from Florida since the Reconstruction Era, expressed admiration for the Black Press, saying it covers the full scope of Black life better than White-owned media.
“I spent more money in this election than I have in any election,” said Hastings, who has served in Congress since 1992.“And I believe Bobby [Henry, publisher of the Westside Gazette in Fort Lauderdale] will tell you that I spent an equivalent or more money than the Obama for America people did with his newspaper.”
Hastings said he also outspent the Obama campaign in other media in Broward County, which makes up part of his congressional district.
“I did that because I wanted Obama to win the presidency, but I particularly went to the ground in this election to prove to him and his minions that this was territory that had been watered, flowered, grown and harvested long before anybody knew his (expletive) name.”
Hastings continued,“…Because of your efforts –national Black publishers – because of many of your efforts, we voted 2 percent in this election more than we did in ’08. And I received 2 percent more in the congressional district that I serve than he did –and that’s the message I wanted to send to him.”
He said a strong message also needs to be sent to advertisers that fail to support the Black Press. According to a 2012 report by Nielsen titled,“African-American Consumers: Still Vital, Still Growing,” Black consumers will have a projected buying power of $1.1 trillion by 2012. Yet, of the $120 billion spent on advertising in 2011, only 2 percent was spent with African-American media.
Hasting criticized several Florida newspapers and local advertisers by name.
“Many of the same people that advertise in these [White-owned] publications don’t advertise with you and that’s insulting because we ultimately wind up using the products that they advertise and somehow or another, our news is ignored.”
Hastings graduated from Fisk University in Nashville and Florida A&M University Law School, both historically Black colleges. His said Obama has also demonstrated insensitivity to HBCUs. Obama administration officials disagree with that assessment, pointing out that he announced a plan to increase spending on HBCUs by $850 million over the next 10 years.
“It was nine months into the administration before he appointed a single person, not just at the cabinet level …” Hasting recalled.“But when you look at the Schedule 1, Schedule 2, and Schedule 3, none in his first nine months of his administration was from a historically Black college.”
Hastings predicted that the nation will lose half of its 105 HBCUs over the next 15 years.
“They, like you, will not survive unless you begin to form consortiums and unless you understand that you are Black-owned and not necessarily Black when it comes to this media business,” he said.“You’re going to have to form conglomerates; you’re going to have to form bonds of trust like you elders had to give birth to this organization being here in place in the first place.”
Hastings said that unlike some journalists employed by White-owned media, NNPA publishers are not conflicted by race. He recalled a speech he gave to a National Association of Black Journalists convention in Dallas where journalists were pondering whether they were journalists or Black first.
“I said,‘If you are not sure about whether or not you are Black, look in the (expletive) mirror,’” Hastings recalled.“’And if the mirror does not give you an answer, ask your mama.’”
The congressman said White-owned media is failing, in part, because of the rush to beat their competitors.

What prompts your obsessive anger & hate? Is it because you feel this Waxman fellow spoils your fun by not allowing you to abuse the judgeit system as you have for a couple years now? How do you know it's him?

Why do you paste items that have nothing to do with you or Waxturds? Do you think lying builds some type of case for you?

You keep stalking someone who is not even here. Do you know what the definition of insanity is?

Maybe if you are nice, the person who outdoes you on the judgeits will let you win once in a while. If it's that important to you, ask for forgiveness.

About 500 000 children would be left without insurance and the poorest Americans could be fined under President Obama’s new health care law because of a loophole that the administration and Congress failed to fix.

Lawmakers passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010 without taking care of a loophole that would make it impossible for low-income families to purchase health care for their themselves or their children. Under the health care law, anyone who fails to acquire insurance will be forced to pay a heavy tax penalty – including those who can’t afford their employer’s insurance plans.

To downplay the severity of the loophole, the administration is calling it a “glitch” and claiming that it was initially unable to address it because of the way Congress wrote the law. Now, two years after the law was voted on, the affordability loophole is posing a significant problem in wake of many of the provisions’ 2014 implementation.

The Obama administration initially planned to offer financial assistance to families to buy private health insurance if they cannot afford their employers’ options – but Congress did not include text for the financial assistance program in the Affordable Care Act.

Under the law, anyone who remains uninsured will be forced to pay heavy fines – including those who can’t afford their employer’s insurance plans. And the IRS on Wednesday refused to exempt such individuals from the fines.

Employer-sponsored health care plans are on the rise, but some families that are unable to afford the coverage offered by their job could be left uninsured when “Obamacare” goes into effect. In the legislation, affordable coverage is defined as costing no more than 9.5 percent of family income. But low-income workers might be unable to pay for the care offered by their employer – especially if it exceeds the affordability margin. Health insurance coverage also costs more if a worker has a family to cover, making it difficult for low-income families to also insure their children.

An average workplace plan costs about $5,600 per individual worker and about $15,700 for a family, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Paying three times as much might not be an option for those with insufficient incomes, thereby prompting them to leave their children uninsured.

Bruce Lesley, president of First Focus, told AP that close to 500,000 children could be left without insurance because of the loophole. Many families will not be able to afford coverage unless their employers help them pay for the premiums – which not all employers do.

In order to solve the problem, Congress would need to amend the health care law, since a significant measure is missing from the text and the IRS failed to exempt Americans who are poor and uninsured from financial penalties.

You have to be the most ignorant person here.
Obama submitted only two budgets to Congress in the four years he was supposed to submit a budget.
The sum total of votes in the entire Congress for each, and both of the two budgets Obama submitted of the four budgets Obama was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NADA, NONE, ZILCH.
Obama gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one goddam vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
That means every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.
So, why do you treat him like some kind of deity while the real leaders of the Democratic Party think Obama is an ignorant idiot?
You people have some serious issues. We know why you hate this Great man...it is because he makes you all look like the damn fools you are.

On February 1, 1960, four students from the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State Universtiy sat down at the lunch counter inside the Woolworth's store at 132 South Elm Street in Greensboro, North Carolina.[1] The men, later known as the Greensboro Four, ordered coffee.[5] Following store policy, the lunch counter staff refused to serve the African American men at the "whites only" counter and the store's manager asked them to leave.[6]

The four university freshmen – Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair, Jr.(later known as Jibreel Khazan), and David Richmond – stayed until the store closed.[6]

The next day, more than twenty African American students who had been recruited from other campus groups came to the store to join the sit-in. Students from Bennett College, a college for African American women in Greensboro, joined the protest. White customers heckled the black students, who read books and studied to keep busy. The lunch counter staff continued to refuse service.[5]

Newspaper reporters and a TV videographer covered the second day of peaceful demonstrations and others in the community learned of the protests. On the third day, more than 60 people came to the Woolworth's store. A statement issued by Woolworth's national headquarters said the company would "abide by local custom" and maintain its segregated policy.[5]

More than 300 people took part on the fourth day. Organizers agreed to spread the sit-in protests to include the lunch counter at Greensboro's Kress store.[5]

As early as one week after the Greensboro sit-in had begun, students in other North Carolina towns launched their own sit-ins. Demonstrations spread to towns near Greensboro, including Winston-Salem, Durham, Raleigh, and Charlotte. Out-of-state towns like Lexington, Kentucky also saw protests.

The movement then spread to other Southern cities including Richmond, Virginia, and Nashville, Tennessee where the students of the Nashville Student Movement had been trained for a sit-in by civil rights activist James Lawson and had already started the process when Greensboro occurred. Although the majority of these protests were peaceful, there were instances where protests became violent.[7] For example, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, tensions rose between blacks and whites and fights broke out.[8] Another city where sit-ins occurred was Jackson, Mississippi. Students from Tougaloo College staged a sit-in on May 28, 1963. The incident is recorded in the autobiography of one of the members in attendance, Anne Moody. Moody described the treatment of the whites who were at the counter when they sat down, as well as the formation of the mob in the store and how they managed to finally leave the store.

As the sit-ins continued, tensions grew in Greensboro and students began a far-reaching boycott of stores that had segregated lunch counters. Sales at the boycotted stores dropped by a third, leading the stores' owners to abandon their segregation policies.[1] Black employees of Greensboro's Woolworth's store were the first to be served at the store's lunch counter, on July 25, 1960. The next day, the entire Woolworth's chain was desegregated, serving blacks and whites alike

The state-owned media made sure people stayed cluless.
So, what's your excuse?

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Thursday blasted the Pentagon’s decision to lift the ban on women serving in combat roles by warning that the enemies of the United States would not “cower in defeat because we have a female, Hispanic, Eskimo, dwarf cross dresser and some handicapable, transgendered breast cancer survivor as a soldier on the front line.”

“Nobody wants to be a pig, nobody wants to say the unpopular things, we just want to talk about the truth tonight,” Beck explained at the top of his Thursday broadcast.“If a few feathers are ruffled, oh well.”
