Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text> What opportunities are you harping on? Did you ever think the need for affirmative action points directly to the inequalities/biases black people face. If blacks have more opportunities, why then don't you state them & make them clear because affirmative action only made it so a certain% of black were offered the same opportunities as white people. Please do back up your claims with evidence. Teach me something I don't know!
Affirmative action is a joke, companies can easily get around it.

You forgot to put content into your post. I gave a reason to eliminate the minimum wage. What is your reason to keep it? And, why do you think it is good for the economy to increasei it?

By the way, you never answered the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.

Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

What don't you understand about the legislators rebelling against the federal republic not being the representation of the state of Virginia in the federal republic?
"New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress."
Since it was only one state, and the legislators rebelling against the federal republic and participating as a funcitoning element of another country cannot be considered as representation in the federal republic for the state of Virginia, and the legislators loyal to the federal republic petitioned for the creation of a new state, and Congress consented to this request, how the hell do you figure West Virginia was unconstitutionally admitted?
Show us where the loyal legislators of Virginia violated this clause:
"Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
If you cannot show that this clause was violated, then you have to admit that West Virginia was admitted into the union constitutionally.

It wasn't me that went for race, dufus. That's the way the goddam laws were written.
Please tell us about "affirmative action", then tell us after 50 goddam years of preferrential treatment, minorities still aren't taking advantage of the opportunities that have been given specifically to them and no other race for 50 years.
Why do you think minorities aren't taking advantage of the opportunities established solely for them?
....the life prospects of an American are more dependent on the income and education of his parents than in almost any other advanced country for which there is data.

How do we explain this? Some of it has to do with persistent discrimination. Latinos and African-Americans still get paid less than whites, and women still get paid less than men, even though they recently surpassed men in the number of advanced degrees they obtain.

The legal legislature was in absentia having seceded temporarily from the Union. Had they successfully left and had been recognized as a seperate country then you might have a case. Even then West Virginia should have been Virginia, the mere fact that they created a new state called West Virginia violates the Constitution.

Bottom line West Virginia was created illegally and should never been allowed per Arcticle 4 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.

I am well aware of that fact. All anyone has to do is listen to Jeremiah Wright to figure that out.
Oh, you mean the only racism is from white people, right?
Perhaps if you lived in the same region that produced someone like David Duke, and your family was:
1) Catholic
2) mixed race (French, Spanish, Native American, black, jew... in addition to Scot/Irish)
3) recently located there
you'd have a goddam clue about what the f**k you're talking about.

What did you say? You never had to fight it out with the goddam Klan?
Well, I did your goddam fighting for you.
Just like other white people did your fighting for you to end slavery.

Like you really understand what you posted.
I'll put it to you simply:
Geothermal heating is a piece of cake. Just drill a hole to the temperature you desire, and circulate water through it and throughout the building.
Geothermal cooling is very difficult. Why? Because the heat you transfer from a building to the ground has to be transported away from the location of the building, or it just rises back into the building.
Any questions?
How about this one:
How is the heat transported away from the location of the building after it has been transferred from the building to the Earth immediately below the building?
... your turn, dufus.
You claim to be a geologist.

What a joke.

This is not geothermal HVAC as considered in the marketplace.

You are a Liberal, do even of he orders the killing of three ex-boyfriend gays, you will still worship him.

Even if falsify his College transcripts you will still worship the altar of socialism.

give me some hard data on why we shouldn't have it.

and no, i don't expect you will even try. you seem to have an aversion to empirical data. we haven't seen a hard fact from you yet.

See? Liberals see and use the tax system to punish capitalism. To punish the rich cause they hate success and want more and more free stuff.

Hey, goofball, what about stopping the free Medicaid to drug dealers?

What about stopping welfare to lazy ghetto parasites like you? That will save trillions of dollars!

Obama's minimum wage proposal will hurt black Americans


What will a minimum wage increase do to black Americans? Olalah Njenga joins Jim Blasingame to discuss some of Obama's State of the Union proposals, including the minimum wage increase, which will hurt black workers disproportionately.

How amusing to watch Democrats wring their hands over what they can do to get businesses to create jobs, when one of the biggest job killers is the minimum wage they keep hiking.

Recall that it was Democrats who raised the federal wage floor a whopping $2.10 an hour in the middle of the recession. The record 41% increase has led to record unemployment among young people, especially black teens.

"In absentia" while rebelling against the federal republic....

Do you listen to yourself?

When any legislator joined the functioning elements of the government established outside of the constitutional government, that legislator cannot be part of any legislative government within the federal republic.
The Constitution prohibits states from joining other countries, dufus.

... "in absentia"....

"Hey! I'm gonna rebel and start a new country from part of your country. While I'm fighting a goddam war with you, I'll be in absentia. Please hold my seat while I kill you."

... get real.

You still haven't shown us how the loyal legislators of Virginia violated Article IV Section 4:
"Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

How did the loyal legislators of Virginia violate the above clause?
How was Virginia not a "Republican Form of Government"?
