Barack Obama, our next President

You are too ignorant to see that a subsidy is effectively the same thing as a tax break.
You seem to think that parsing everything down to nothing somehow helps your cause. It doesn't.
I don't come here to get into pissing contests, but the content from folks like you is so lame and dumb, it is required that someone set you straight.
You're another nitwit who hates Obama, and all you do is defend policies like tax breaks for oil companies, while everyone is looking to cut spending. Tax breaks and subsidies ARE spending!!
You moan how Obama spends too much, but when he suggest eliminating tax breaks for Corporations, all you do is whine.
The foreign tax credit is not a subsidy. It is a tax break that allows oil companies to deduct all foreign taxes they pay from their American Taxes.
Is that fair or proper?? If so, how??
Who does the oil belong to?

I mean I guess I can see why one or two former heads of the Israeli national security Service would call the fabricated American "wars" in Iraq and Afghanistan a political football and decry the descent of the once great Israeli nation into a cess-pool of political intrigue and incompetence, but all of them?

Earliest Precursors of the One-Drop Rule (C15)Polly Gray was a fair-complexioned biracial woman from Hamilton County, Ohio. In November of 1829, she was tried for robbery and convicted due in part to the testimony of a Black witness for the prosecution. She appealed to the Supreme Court of Ohio on the grounds that she was White. Ohio statutes forbade Blacks from testifying against Whites, and yet she was convicted on Black testimony. Hence, she claimed, her conviction should be overturned.
Her lawyer argued that, despite Ms. Gray’s slight African ancestry, she looked more European than African. This meant that she was legally White by the rule of physical appearance in effect in Ohio at the time.
The prosecutor agreed that physical appearance was the only legal way to decide which side of the color line someone was on. But he argued that Ms. Gray,“appeared, upon inspection… to be of a shade of color between the mulatto and white.” He said that she was not quite light-skinned enough to be White. Legally, he insisted, she was Mulatto, not White. Had Ms. Gray looked completely European and not been “a shade of color” darker, the prosecution would have agreed to void her conviction.
The Ohio Supreme Court agreed that physical appearance was the only way of deciding.“We are unable to set out any other plain and obvious line or mark between the different races. Color alone is sufficient.” The problem was just where to draw the line.
After deliberation, the judge ruled,“We believe a man, of a race nearer white than a mulatto… should partake in the privileges of whites. We are of opinion that a party of such a blood is entitled to the privileges of whites.“Partly because we are unwilling to extend the disabilities of the statute further than its letter requires, and partly from the difficulty of defining and of ascertaining the degree of duskiness which renders a person liable to such disabilities.”
This case, Gray v. Ohio, 1831, marks an important historical watershed. It was the last appeals case in the free states where everyone agreed that one of the traditional rules (physical appearance, blood fraction, or association) would decide your “race.”
From then on, some form of one-drop rule of invisible Blackness would be argued, unsuccessfully at first, in most racial identity cases heard in the North and later in the upper South. Within a century, the one-drop rule of invisible Blackness would entirely supplant the rules of physical appearance, blood fraction, and association throughout the nation. How did this come about? Better yet, how did it start?
----------
Anthropologically speaking, the notion of invisible Blackness–the idea that one can be a member of the U.S. Black endogamous group due to an undetectable trace of distant African ancestry–is a myth. In other words, the notion must have served some useful social purpose or it would not have spread throughout the nation and been preserved to this day. But tracing its origin is as difficult as uncovering the origin of any other popular idea.We can approach its origin from two directions: first working forwards in time from the Revolution and then working backwards from the Jim Crow era Working forwards from the formation of the Republic, we know that as of 1830 the one-drop rule had not yet been argued in an appeals court anywhere in the United States.Furthermore we know that the farther south you look in the early antebellum period, the less familiar the terrain becomes. South Carolina had an extraordinarily permeable color line Alabama and Louisiana had two mildly endogamous color lines separating three groups. And Florida lacked any endogamous color line at all.Only the upper South and the North had an endogamous color line similar to today’s impermeable, based on hypodescent and supported by a shared sense of ethnic self-identity So we must seek the birth of the one-drop rule around 1830 in the free states

You talk down the economy because you hate Obama.
Problem is, you're dead wrong.
You come here with stupid premises, and you expect to walk away unscathed??
Fact is, Obama saved the economy from a complete Depression, and you hate it!!
Nuculur have you been hiding in a Bunker somewhere the Economy Sucks!!

The Congressional Budget Office's just-released economic forecast for 2013 is dispiriting, to say the least. The GDP is expected to grow by only 1.4%, the unemployment rate will "stay near" 8%, the deficit will reach $845 billion, and ObamaCare will cost 7 million their health insurance!!

White race not destroyed through inter-racial mixing!
the one-drop rule went further in stating that any black ancestry made someone black, regardless of how little that ancestry is.

It's possible for Americans with black and white ancestry to have one sibling with mixed genes, another sibling who is 100% black, another sibling who is 100% white. It depends on how the genes are distributed. The Cosby Show was an excellent illustration of that!

There are many whites in America that have Native American ancestry but this does not necessarily translate racially into a particular descendent of that ancestry as having Native American genes. Many Americans with Native American ancestry are 100% Caucasian.

Every dog breeder knows that you can get a pure-breed (or pure race) from a mutt but you can't get a mutt from a pure-breed! A mutt carries genes for producing pure-breeds, but pure-breeds don't carry genes for producing any other race than their own.

Many often wonder how all the varieties or races of people could have come from the same original human ancestors. Well, in principle, that's no different than asking how children with different color hair (i.e., blond, brunette, brown, red) can come from the same parents who both have black hair.

Just as some individuals today carry genes to produce descendants with different color hair and eyes, humanity's first parents (Adam and Eve), possessed genes to produce all the variety and races of humans. You and I today may not carry the genes to produce every variety or race of humans, but humanity's first parents did possess such genes.

All varieties of humans carry genes for the same basic traits, but not all humans carry every possible variation of those genes. For example, one person may be carrying several variations of the gene for eye color (i.e., brown, green, blue), but someone else may be carrying only one variation of the gene for eye color (i.e., brown). Both carry the basic gene for eye color but both don't carry every variety of that gene. Thus, both will have different abilities to affect the eye color of their offspring.

Sounds like Connecticut Democrats are going to add a new tax on violent video games, citing the Sandy Hook/Newtown killer was addicted to them.

This makes more sense than going overboard like Democrats typically do. If laughed that the Democrats of course found a "tax" as part of the solution. The tax revenues are supposed to go toward public announcements warning parents about such video games.
