Barack Obama, our next President

Changes in “Racial” Criteria
Before 1960, when census takers assigned people to the approved “races,” the rules for classifying people were not always clear. Nevertheless, it appears that census takers probably followed “racial” classification rules in effect in their society at the time, as reflected in court cases. They seem to have employed four different methods of assigning “racial” membership: appearance, blood fraction, association, and the one-drop rule.

Until about 1820, most people in authority were guided by a person’s physical appearance. If you looked White to the census-taker, then you were White (for example, Sally Hemings’s son Eston). But if you looked Black then you were Black (like Eston’s brother James). From 1830 until about 1890, blood fraction or association decided the issue. If most of your ancestors were White and you were accepted as White in society, then the census-taker classified you as White. Finally, from around the turn of the twentieth century to today, the one-drop rule of invisible Blackness emerged and gradually replaced all other methods. If you had any known African ancestry, no matter how slight, then you were involuntarily classified as Black.(16)

Since 1960, as mentioned earlier, Americans have interpreted the census “race” question as asking about voluntary ethnic self-identity. The wording of the 2000 census instructions probably encouraged this interpretation. It ordered,“indicate what this person considers himself/herself to be”[emphasis mine].(17)

Forbidden by Congress from removing the “other” choice entirely, the Census Bureau sought a different way of forcing Americans to take the “race” question seriously. As mentioned, to meet their mission, they needed to discourage the millions who in 2000 checked off “other” and wrote in something frivolous, like “human.” The solution was to remove the “considers” instruction in 2010. The census no longer allows one to select the “race” that a “person considers himself/herself to be.” Instead, it now demands to know what “is the person’s race.” This, however, led to a dilemma. On the one hand,“race” is no longer a matter of choice but on the other hand, the instructions no longer say just what criteria are to be used.(18)

Liar.
Plame's job was to oversee the council whose job it was to get verification of the intel
My God you are really getting dumber every f*cking GD day. No wonder you post the same stupid question over & over as slobber drips from your chin.
Your buddy used intel that was not confirmed.
And really, the GD CRA excuse again. My God, you really are more Texan than normal today.( For those not aware, Dumbwaiter said Texans have so may minimum wage jobs because Texans are ignorant uneducated dumbasses)
Director of Operations for the CIA’s Joint Task Force on Iraq

I wonder what the responsibilities for that job are....
Let's ask Valerie Plame. It was her last job before Robert Novak outed her.

Valerie Plame is responsible for any and all intelligence given to Bush on the status of WMD programs in Iraq prior to fighting the war the Arabs started there.

But it probably doesn't. The whole jesus, reincarnation thing is CLEARLY just a pile of wishful crap. It's like that pretty girl at the prom who asked you to take her virginity but your mom told you to be home by ten and when you went back the next day and asked the same girl if she had time now she pretended like she didn't know who you were. It woulda made some sense if you'd pulled it off after a hundred years or so, but carpe deo I always say.
Did I say anything about Jesus or religion clown?

How about something other than the indoctrinated party line mantra bullshit lies? You may have to think for yourself to come up with something... like it would be the stupidest thing in the world to leave Saddam Hussein in our rear with a rebuilt war machine while we concentrated all of our forces to do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets.
Let's ask all the Iraqis with blue die on their fingers to show the Islamist terrorists throughout Iraq that Iraq is a democracy.
Obviously, it was a success.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
And, just as obviously, Obama is sabotaging Iraq.

Please identify a specific subsidy that is unique to the oil industry.
"But an examination of the American tax code indicates that oil production is among the most heavily subsidized businesses, with tax breaks available at virtually every stage of the exploration and extraction process."

"According to the most recent study by the Congressional Budget Office, released in 2005, capital investments like oil field leases and drilling equipment are taxed at an effective rate of 9 percent, significantly lower than the overall rate of 25 percent for businesses in general and lower than virtually any other industry."

That oil companies aren't subsidized by government at all levels is a right wing myth.
Tax breaks are allowing people/companies to keep more of the money they earn. Not a subsidy. Only libtards would call allowing someone to keep the money they earn a subsidy.

Well, gee Whiz.

Then they would send someone.

You really are this stupid. Here I thought it was an act.

If the caller says the suspects are gone, they don't drop everything & rush over.

If the caller says they are or might be, then they would.

For instance, Exxon pays 12.3 billion dollars in taxes to the federal government of the United States. Exxon earns only 9.6 billion dollars from investment in the United States.

... that's some tax break, isn't it?

That oil companies are subsidized by the government is a leftwing propaganda lie.

Ok. For the "special needs" people in the class, for the umpteenth time....

The Treasury Department isn't a source of money. The Treasury Department is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
Besides, there isn't any money in the Treasury Department because the Treasury Department is already 16.5 trillion dollars in debt.

If you're too ignorant to answer the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government, just read a little when someone who actually knows what a source of money is might answer.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
