<quoted text> I must be totally honest. No, I didn't read Zappa's garbage, but I did read yours. Clean cut house Negro huh! From slave to slavemaster I guess! You really ought to come off your minds plantation/house on the hills or in the sticks of middle America and see the modern version of us would've been slaves. You'd be surprised! We actually have the mental capacity to go along with our brute strength & athletic ability. It's a shame you remain stuck up in your shyt hole of a house watching TV in black & white. Otherwise you would realize that"house Negro"is President of the country you call home, makes you pay taxes, calls the shots. So in your eyes that would make you the slave & he the slave master right? That's the problem you have with Barack as president. You don't like it much when the shoe is on the other foot do you? Well get use to it Mr. irrelevant. It's a new day in these here parts. There's a new sheriff in town & Barack Hussein Obama is his name! Now stop whining sissy boy!
What if someone said Obama is light-skinned, articulate and doesn't use Negro dialect unless he wants to?

Because Senator Harry Reid said that.

Whether you like it or not, Romney hit the nail right on the head the other night. He said (paraphrasing) never before has any president wanted bad things to happen just to blame the other guy.

"white on white" crimes seem by the republicans, not racist ? still the party is having some delightful problems.
I feel like we're repeating history.

Democratic economist Robert Reich is accusing the Tea Party of "treason".

"Imagine a plot to undermine the government of the United States, to destroy much of its capacity to do the public's business, and to sow distrust among the population," Reich wrote.

If a spokesman for King George III had written, "Imagine a plot to undermine the monarchy of England, to destroy much of its capacity to do the public's business, and to sow distrust among the population," about the Tea Party revolutionists, it wouldn't surprise me.

Continuing to Get the 2012 Election Wrong

The outcome wasn’t proof that “identity politics beat economic politics.” Republicans assumed from the beginning that they would prevail in a contest defined by economic politics when they had little or nothing of interest to say to the electorate.

They can call themselves the Tea Party. They can call themselves conservatives. And they can even call themselves Republicans, though Republicans certainly shouldn’t. But we should call them what they are: The American Taliban. And the American Taliban cannot survive if Dorothy Cooper is allowed to vote. – Will McAvoy, The Newsroom

Menendez accuser says she was paid to make up prostitution claims

There's no confirmation so far on who paid for the fake claims, but since the Daily Caller video surfaced a mere five days before Menendez's reelection, it seems quite likely to be politically motivated (yes, I managed to say that with a straight face—congratulate me).

In any event, The Daily Caller looks to have been either badly burned, gullible, or both. Good show, conservative news sources. Again.

Fox Nation vs. Reality

The Fox News Community's Assault On Truth

When Fox News debuted it was crafted from scratch to be a partisan outlet for right-wing propaganda and a platform for advancing a conservative agenda. Its Internet community web site, Fox Nation, serves as the online gathering place for Fox viewers to absorb and spread the aggregated disinformation and conspiracy theories hatched by Fox News.

This first volume of Fox Nation vs. Reality is a collection of some of the blatant falsehoods produced by a deceitful team of Fox Nationalists. These are not mere differences of opinion or discussions that might have varying degrees of perspective. They are obvious, provable, out and out lies. They are manifestations of a disconnect with the real world. And they are aimed at an ill-informed audience that is only interested in having their prejudices affirmed.

Fox Nation vs. Reality provides an eye-opening look into the lengths that committed propagandists will go in order to fabricate an alternative political reality. And remember, Fox Nation is not some remote outpost on the Internet Superhighway. It is an integral part of Fox News whose executives are wholly responsible for the stain it produces on journalism.

Arianna Huffington has a talk with Carl Bernstein about Bob Woodward....

I called Carl Bernstein to ask what he thought of his old partner's behavior. He was loyal as ever but he did say something very revealing -- and unintentionally damning. "This investigation," he told me, "has cast a constant searchlight that the White House can't turn off the way it has succeeded in turning off the press. So their methodology and their dishonesty and their disingenuousness -- particularly about how we went to war -- as well as their willingness to attack and rough up people who don't agree with them are now there for all to see. They can't turn off this searchlight, which is shining on a White House that runs a media apparatus so sophisticated in discrediting its critics it makes the Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Ziegler press shop look like a small-time operation." 2005.

So today we learned that Iran doesn't like being talked down to by the likes of Joe Biden and that the press is really pizzed that the Worm could get into a place that they couldn't. To the point that the thirty other BB guy's don't even have names. Hah!
You fret way too much boy__kinda like the the insecure Carol who you often answer for__what's up with that anyway?
That said__today over forty Syrian regular army deserters were murdered as they were being returned to Syria by the Iraq government-military. Weird eh?
The Syrian's hauled azz rather than fight the rebels__what is it about these "folks" that makes them want to run for their lives when the shyt hits?
And what is it about mutts like McCain, Graham and fools like you that continue to present these cowards ans dangerous to US security.
We should be sending those cowards Nike running shoes instead of military hardware.
Obama is already supplying arms to radical Islamist factions in the Syrian civil war, a huge mistake. This war is none of our business.
