Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

It's amazing isn't it? One would think that we have a few billionaires on here; like Carol who continually carries water for the rich while making an hourly wage of $15.00; the hillbilly from KY who claims she works and once said makes $400 a week (doubtful)
etc.
It's not only against the poor, it is against all the middle class working people. They've been convinced to vote against their own best interests.
Lily, one of the most important things I've learned in life is the secret to happiness is to be content with what you have and not envy what others might have.

The other thing is if you don't like your circumstances, do something to change them.

Democrats like lily are nothing more than brain dead hypocrites, spreading propoganda. These morons simply ignore the fact Al Gore has a mansion with the carbon footprint of 20 homes.
Idiots like her and leosnana with her Rmoney slang are what one calls a charlatan, which is also a good description for Al Gore by the way.
How could I have left out Al Gore? Major oversight on my part. Thanks for bringing him to Lily's attention.

JACKSON, Miss.(AP)— The family of a slain Mississippi mayoral candidate says he was beaten and burned.
Marco McMillian's godfather, Carter Womack, said Monday that the information came from the Coahoma County coroner. The coroner declined to comment.
Womack said the family was told McMillian's body was dragged under a fence and left near a Mississippi River levee last week.
A person with direct knowledge of the investigation confirmed to The Associated Press that McMillian had bruises and there were burns on at least part of his body. The person wasn't authorized to publicly comment and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The 34-year-old McMillian was a candidate for mayor of Clarksdale. Twenty-two-year-old Lawrence Reed has been charged with murder.

Shin Dong escaped from one of the 7 labor camps in North Korea after being born there and escaping at the age of 23.
His story and recalling what he saw and experienced himself is hard to get your head around.
In fact, anyone who has any confusion whatsoever about communism should watch this movie/documentary. I promise there will be no further confusion.

IF OBAMA REALLY CARED ABOUT BLACK MEN Prison and the Poverty Trap
The shift to tougher penal policies three decades ago was originally credited with helping people in poor neighborhoods by reducing crime. But now that America’s incarceration rate has risen to be the world’s highest, many social scientists find the social benefits to be far outweighed by the costs to those communities.

“Prison has become the new poverty trap,” said Bruce Western, a Harvard sociologist.“It has become a routine event for poor African-American men and their families, creating an enduring disadvantage at the very bottom of American society.”

Among African-Americans who have grown up during the era of mass incarceration, one in four has had a parent locked up at some point during childhood. For black men in their 20s and early 30s without a high school diploma, the incarceration rate is so high — nearly 40 percent nationwide — that they’re more likely to be behind bars than to have a job.

No one denies that some people belong in prison. Mr. Harris, now 47, and his wife, 45, agree that in his early 20s he deserved to be there. But they don’t see what good was accomplished by keeping him there for two decades, and neither do most of the researchers who have been analyzing the prison boom.

The number of Americans in state and federal prisons has quintupled since 1980, and a major reason is that prisoners serve longer terms than before. They remain inmates into middle age and old age, well beyond the peak age for crime, which is in the late teenage years — just when Mr. Harris first got into trouble.
DEMOCRATS HAVE NOT REALLY HELPED THE BLACK COMMUNITY

In 2006, The Washington Post revealed Chris Wallace has been a registered Democrat for more than two decades. Wallace insisted that being a Democrat is the only feasible means of participating in the political process in heavily Democratic Washington, D.C. He maintains he has voted for candidates from both major parties in the past.

The Expansion of Black American Misery under Barack Obama’s Watch
Black folks are not only far worse off “since 2009 under President Obama’s economic and job creation policies”– Africans Americans are the only group that “has taken a definitive step backwards since then.” The main reason:“lack of attention to employment in urban and rural geographic areas where Blacks reside.”“Obama has declined to even put forth the idea that ‘low income Black people need targeted help.’”
Here are two facts that may surprise many people.
1. Black misery has been growing since 2009 under President Obama’s economic and job creation policies. Black folks participation in the labor market has been steadily moving DOWNWARD during the Obama presidency – since 2009 when he was first inaugurated.
2. ALL other major racial groups have moved up, albeit moderately, since 2009! Blacks are the only group that has taken a definitive step BACKWARDS since then. Why? This article will argue that it is because for the past 4 years, until last week, Obama has declined to even put forth the idea that "low income Black people need targeted help too!!! Needless to say, has not designed any job creation strategies or policies that would do something for the Blacks who supported him the most.
One indicator of this downward spiral for Blacks is the underemployment rate. Underemployment is measured by the extent to which people who “usually work full time” cannot find full time employment. These include people who are unemployed completely and people who work less than full time (i.e. less than 35 hours a week) due to their inability to find more employment. The underemployment rate does not include the millions of U.S. citizens (mostly Black) who are institutionalized in prisons.
Thats why Blacks all voted Republican in the last election?

You miss the point as usual; no one cared that Romney was rich; it was the disdain and disconnect on the part of him and his wife.
Also, the road to riches of Romney was achieved by ruining others lives. He never created anything, it was manipulation of the system. Continually overloading companies with debt in order to file banktruptcy is legalized stealing; millions get hurt, the banks, the employees, the suppliers. He is unscrupulous in his zest for riches, just like Da Donald.
