Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Hah, you're a trip. Lowes asks for a phone number as part of their return policy__but they won't argue if the customer fusses about privacy.

I spend a fair amount of money at Lowes and Ace and always use my cards because both occasionally send worthwhile discount cards. Home Depot does as well there are none convenient to me.

Flack believes that McDonalds has coded keys on it's cash registers because it's employees can't count___case closed.

Only liberals have the delusion of "payback", ala mafia style.
Debating the issues would be a nice change. Disagreeing on the issues would be a nice change. Pointing out the flaws in the oppositions's policies would be a nice change.
This isn't "payback" as obviously this is what you are accusing republicans of having done.
But liberals can't do any of those things. They would risk revealing their dismal policies, their true identity and agenda and lose votes.
you castigate Obama at every turn with very little in the way of a realistic view of his actions.

so how did you like the Daily Caller interview of Carson? because the things he said that you faux conservatives won't like are the very things that would get him into the WH. and in the process, he did a very good job of pointing out others' flaws, and not just Obama's.

he'll never get near the WH because of it.

PLEASE don't pretend this isn't what you advocate, or that you've ever had a sexual encounter you didn't specifically encourage. I'm betting you wouldn't even know rape if you were the perpetrator, and that's the biggest part of the problem.
Any man who says he never had some form of sexual encounter with a woman who had a few too many is lying.

Why do you think bars and nightclubs exist?

Contrary to common belief, motorcycle gang members are notoriously hyper-conservative, in spite of their rather catholic sexual habits -- or perhaps BECAUSE of them ...
More likely because they are individualists and don't like anybody, particularly the government, telling them how to lead their lives.

Nobody likes the Obama/Bloomerberg nanny state, but many are hooked on the welfare, like crack addicts.

Ever see them try to give change when the register is down? They can't count. Nor add or subtract. Forget about multiply and divide. Take the calculator away and most are a bunch of idiots.

Stopping rape is a men's problem

Women have talked among themselves and with their daughters about preventing rape for a very, very long time. They've gone to self-defense classes, held seminars and published safety tips on how to avoid rape. But self-defense and safety tips cannot alone protect women. Because rape is the inevitable outcome in a society that objectifies and dehumanizes women in a plethora of ways.

Men should join women in becoming vocal about the reasons for rape and what can be done to prevent it.

To start with, men should stop contributing, as so many do now, to an atmosphere that condones rape through silent complicity with, or voiced approval, of rape jokes, various forms of victim-blaming and attitudes that treat women as objects to be had if the opportunity presents itself. Men should speak unhesitatingly in the company of other men to break this cycle.

That means fathers speaking to sons as well. Straightforwardly making their sons clear about what truly constitutes consent requires being clear in their own heads what it means. Consent is not given because a woman has previously given consent, or because her outfit seems to be giving consent. And she obviously is not consenting if she is too inebriated or drugged to stay conscious. A campaign in Vancouver, British Columbia, included a wall poster depicting a woman sprawled on a couch next to some empty wine bottles stated: "Just because she isn’t saying no doesn’t mean she is saying yes.”

Fathers should set an example so that their sons also will not remain silent when such behavior arises among their friends or acquaintances, whether at school or some party where the liquor flows. They should impress upon them that there are no "provocations" or circumstances—none—in which rape can be excused. They should repeat these values until they feel as certain as possible that their sons will not be one of those someday accused of rape or having stood by, much less cheered, while their friends or acquaintances raped.

That is why minimum wage jobs exist, for those with no experience, no education, and no skills.

You really should read up on General Monk Monk ( noble Drew Ali) then tell me who bred who. Your acknowledgment of our dominance is correct, but your assertion as to how we got that way is all wrong. We were created the dominate chosen ones. You were grafted. I can't deny slavery happened, but the truth is they paid quadruple for black slaves vs white slaves because we were physically dominate from the beginning! This is why they did not want blacks participating in sports! We all see the end result. Plenty of stories of how life on earth was created & none of them involve the whiteman until historic religions started talking about the devil. Ironic to say the least!
Very few black quarterbacks. Slaves weren't bred to be smart.

Good comeback. But wrong.

Accusing an opponent of falsely killing someone's wife is not an assertion. Accusing opponents of wanting to throw old people off cliffs and wanting children to starve to death are not assertions.

So you really don't have a leg to stand on.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed landmark new gun laws on Wednesday expanding background checks on gun purchases and limiting the size of ammunition magazines, placing the traditionally firearm-friendly state among the handful to pass new restrictions in the wake of the shooting in Newtown, Conn.

It's really the media's job to hold Obama's feet to the fire. That's supposed to be the only reason they exit - to hold those in power accountable on behalf of the folks.

But the media is as corrupt as the Chicago politicians in power.

That's why you're either completely in the dark or in the abyss of denial.

What if a person has no ID, like all those Obama voters?
I was in Chico last year and was not allowed into a bar because i did not have ID. The bouncer told me local law required all bar patrons to carry a valid form of ID while inside. They were checking everyone, some for possession and others for age. we were able to find a bar that didn't care that i didn't have ID with me.

With your ground rules, the only safe course for a male is to never have sex outside marriage, and maybe not even then.

Perhaps carry a blank written contract, to be signed by the woman attesting that she is sober and consents' to be witnessed by three other sober women.

By the way, what about women "raping" men who have had too much to drink?

Asking for zip codes tells a store what people from a certain area are buying. great information for targeted advertising. no store has ever asked me for my phone number, and I've spent a lot of time in Lowes, home Depot and OSH the last few months.

assertions?

Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is concerned about the draconian cuts of Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposed budget.

“It cuts too much spending, frankly, from the discretionary side of the budget," Rogers said during an interview with a local Kentucky station on Thursday, first flagged by ThinkProgress.

Rogers, who has served in Congress for over three decades, represents the second-poorest district in the country. As chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, he oversees the funding of federal agencies and programs.

"Most people don’t realize that we only appropriate one-third of federal spending … and we’ve cut that by $100 billion over the last two years,“ Rogers said. "That's unknown since World War II."
