<quoted text> A Flack, if your opinion of me mattered I wouldn't be who I am! Truth be told we (the adults) have these conversations all the time. The power & influence the white race had over society as a whole in this country. If you won't lite about that, why lie about the physical dominance the black race has over society as a whole? All you topix faithfuls love to turn statistics into facts, well the statistics are out there Flack. I don't gotta name names. In all athletic events that black folks play a part in, we dominate & are known to be the best in. To deny the facts is to lie to ones self. You wouldn't be calling yourself a liar now would you Flack? And don't bring up Rocky Marciano & his 43-0 record. The man fought his cousin like 15 times! Besides you would even say Ali or some black guy was the greatest unless you're lying to yourself again Flack!
That's an awful lot of effort to describe why you don't care about his opinion...

This can make all the difference in a world and in a life.
But the shuffleheads of this world enjoy the perceived and mistaken security found below that extent where we can throw our hands up in the air declaring that "I'm just a product of my environment. I can't help being what and who I am".
So she remains an oil stain and is unapologetic about it.
Have to have SOME compassion when dealing with some of this stuff--people can be so flocked up, and when they impose they're flocked upedness onto others..therein starts the "pattern" of flocked up.

Huh, sounds like some words eligible for noteable mention in flacks book of flocked up world :-)

<quoted text>Fascinating!!I'm 'assuming' you have some expertise in this area. Please, explain the difference between 'rape' and 'real rape'. You know, from the raped person's perspective...
When did rape become anything other than a sexual assault? Now rape is becoming a political issue as well? Anyone assinine enough to try and change what rape is to suit their own agenda isn't worth talking to. Rape is and will always be a sexual assault. It doesn't always have to involve a penis. Don't waste your breath. Did you know that eating Hostess twinkies has now become a political statement? I wonder if the children who love them know that?

He didn't become a world renowned neurosurgeon by following a herd mentality. Neither was he handed his skills on a silver platter.
He worked hard and overcame obstacles and achieved his goals. If that makes him a token in the eyes of liberals, it's because he doesn't make sense to people who find those attributes alien.
What makes you think intelligent and forward-thinking people are qualified to lead?
How many commas did Obama have in his bank statement after writing a few books about himself? What qualified him to be the president?
Which makes the man very respect worthy, based upon actual honest earned MERIT!!!!!!

Oh, come on. Did you REALLY think the Senate would ever even consider a gun bill? These guys want to get re-elected.

They're going after bullets, instead.

Just another to show just how far his mentality stretches! If you call a paragraph a lot of effort, I'd ate to see what it takes to wipe your ass! Again, you don't have to agree, but the truth is the truth & to deny the truth is to lie to ones self, Small brain!

sorry, doofus dave, no one is buying it.
Let's talk about how the democrats Wilson and FDR got us into 2 world wars, much more stimulating.
How many dead? 3/4 of a million?
You think we should have just allowed Germany to take over all of Europe? And Japan who with Italy were in cahoots with Germany? The war was happening. We could either ignore it or help. I guess you chose ignore.

You keep protecting Bush & ignoring 4400 dead soldiers. Saddam was attacking no one. We could have tightened our no fly zone & used economic sanctions to oust Saddam. There was no urgency.

Now jump ahead a few more years and get with the current times.

Iran has now stepped ahead a few more steps, and is the issue of the term.

It just amazed me that someone defended the liberal labeling of Dr. Carson as a "token" last night because of the "number of commas he has in his bank statement" and the only reason he calls himself a republican.

Guess the poster convienently forget about the number of commas in John Edwards', John Kerry's and Ted Kennedy's bank statements.

A doctor isn't as qualified to be in a leadership position than a lawyer or a career politician I suppose.
