Minorities have as many advantages as non minorities. Those who claim the contrary are liars frustrated who had ever try to evolve. It is an easy way to complain everytime and to find reasons while the only reason is that you are lazy. In america, the one who wants to succee can whether he is black,white,indian,chinese or whatever. We are the country the most evoluated about discrimination. Look at our president, he is the living proof that everyone can manage to succee in our society. It is just up to you to want it.
Wow, you're really "evoluated" man

There are some teens, that are unemployable no matter how good the economy gets, crack babies for instance. In Florida the schools have turned to having kids arrested for infractions that used to result in a couple of penalty halls.
Lack of family structure and work ethic, leading to all of the above.

Newt Gingrich: Democrats''Super Bowl Team' Beats GOP's 'Mid-Level College Team' On Technology
""ewt Gingrich took a hit at Republicans Sunday, comparing the GOP's "mid-level college team" to Democrats' "Super Bowl team."
Gingrich reflected on the GOP's rebranding while on ABC's "This Week." The former presidential hopeful said the issue Republicans have with technology is "a culture problem," and that Democrats are using "the most advanced decision processes" to communicate with constituants.
“[Democrats] are a Super Bowl team that we ought to respect deeply, and we are currently a mid-level college team floundering around,” Gingrich said.“This is a fundamental re-thinking on how you relate to the American people.”
This isn't the first time Gingrich has criticized the GOP. Gingrich slammed the GOP's lack of diversity in House committee chairs as "a real problem" in November 2012, and he hit Republicans for using "a threat they can't sustain" on the debt ceiling in January.""

Obama Flips the Bird to Unions

Alarm bells are going off for labor unions around the country.

Four years after electing the most pro-labor president of the last half-decade, it looks like the scheme has backfired.

In 2008 and 2012 labor unions used everything, including a little body English, ballot stuffing and voter intimidation to elect a president who would bring the prestige of presidential backing to recruitment efforts for labor unions.

Since then not only have labor unions taken historic defeats in former union strongholds, like Wisconsin and Michigan, labor union membership is declining at a rate that will make them a footnote in the annals of history if the steady decline in membership keeps up at the current pace.

“The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released statistics Jan. 23 that confirm an alarming drop in unionization,” writes Denver Labor attorney Bill Berger in the Denver Business Journal,“especially in private (nongovernmental) workplaces…. BLS statistics show unions lost 400,000 members in America last year. In 2011, 11.8 percent of all workers were union. That dropped to 11.3 percent in 2012.”

Ryan/GOP cuts would throw a combined 600,000 poor children off of food stamps and Medicaid. Literally, Paul Ryan is trying to protect the defense industry by starving hundreds of thousands of economically disadvantaged children.

The “smarter cuts” that Rep. Ryan is touting would slash food stamps, and throw 300,000 children off the program. The cuts are so extensive that they would eliminate food assistance for 1.8 million adults and children. Ryan’s cuts would also eliminate Meals on Wheels, federal funding for child protective services, and healthcare for disabled adults and children.

Children may have a “right to life” in the Republican Party, but the conservative culture of life doesn’t include food. If kids want to eat, they’re on their own.

You will never admit that the black comunity is imploding because of their own doing , when you have 70% of black babies being born out of wedlock , aids and stds rampent and growing at an alarming rate , why and how is it possible for a black male to have so many babymammas , because we taxpayers foot the bill from womb to tomb thats why , the leading cause of death of a black male between the age of 18 to 25 is another black male between the age of 18 and 25 , you can blame whittey all you want but it dosent change the fact that your problems begin and end with yourselves ,it dosent take a govt.to raise a child when a two parent home with instilled values and respect would do just fine , blame it on DNA either its in the genes or the other DNA [daddy's not around].

Calling Bullshit, Harmy...why can't you ever do your own research? Just because Dumbya can't leave the country for fear of arrest and is a speaker relegated to the equivalent of reading "My Pet Goat" doesn't mean he has any integrity: "When George W. Bush declined President Obama’s invitation to a ceremony at New York’s ground zero after Osama bin Laden was killed, the former president cited his desire to keep a low public profile.

But Bush has been raising his profile in a different, and lucrative, way: He has raked in millions of dollars since leaving office by making scores of speeches that typically earn him six figures a pop.

In the week after Obama’s May 5 ground zero event, the 43rd president made time for three separate speeches to hedge-fund executives, a Swiss bank sanctioned for keeping secret bank accounts, and a pro golf event underwritten by the accounting firm involved in the Tyco International financial scandal.

Bush’s standard speaking fee is reportedly between $100,000 and $150,000." (Don't really know what he raked in in the Caymans.)

Coud it be because he is the most hated man in America??

Are you too stupid to see that??

He's a disgrace to our nation, and everyone knows it!!

Bush wasn't even invited to the Republiclown Convention!!

An ex-President who's been declared ' persona non grata' by his own Party!!

Bush is a broken man, drinking away his hideous past.

And you're a fool!!

He's an alcoholic, getting drunk daily, just like Mindy McCready.

He'll likely end up the same way.

it's just way to easy to say nothing but: cut spending.
looking at the lack of data to support conservative theories, ideas that actually grow the economy seem out of touch for today's conservative.
Obama's "ideas" have failed miserably in providing economic growth.

You are way too generous.

Compared to the lousy Obama economy, growth of 4% would look like a runaway boom.
