Oh God yes!! can not wait for someone to attacks us who do you think it will be. Just when we only out spend the top five other counties in the world with our military budget. Yes they are coming to get us. So glad you on top of it and know so much about our military spending. Go FOX NEWS they report you don check up on them.

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

so Carson is much detested?
carol will be so disappointed.
Bob Beckel, a democrat commentator, admitted Dr. Carson is scaring the liberals. According to him, "shaking in their boots."

If Dr. Carson is seriously going to run for office, he'll have to disappear for a while and do some serious homework, preferably with some top-notch political counselors. Otherwise, his abundance of common sense will only go so far in the media spotlight and on the political stage. But he's smart enough to know that too.

There's going to be several excellent choices among republicans in 2016. We just have to pick the one with the least baggage, the best message and rally around that one person this time.

There was such an urgency to beat Obama in 2012, there were just too many chefs in the kitchen. Too many of us liked everything we saw and couldn't decide on which one served up the best dish, so to speak.

HARRISBURG - A Republican plan to phase out Pennsylvania's 600 state-operated liquor stores and raise millions in revenue by selling licenses to private businesses passed the state House easily on Thursday and was sent to the state Senate.
The 105-90 vote after about seven hours of debate was a victory for members of the majority Republican caucus and their ally, Gov. Tom Corbett, also a Republican.
Democrats warned the privatization bill would put thousands of state store employees out of work, cost more and generate less revenue than supporters predict, and make alcohol more widely available, bringing with it a range of social problems.
"This is not a business-friendly bill," said Rep. Margo Davidson, D-Delaware. "This measure has the potential to destroy small businesses and ravage communities."
Supporters said the state should not be selling alcohol and said private businesses would improve customer service, create jobs and put an end to a Depression-era system of state control that was nearly unique across the country. They said sales would increase partly by recapturing customers from Pennsylvania who currently purchase wine and liquor from other states, particularly New Jersey.
So, does this mean you're moving back, I mean if you ever left, just sayin'
I think it's a good idea.

<quoted text> Yes libtards love to divide people into groups(herds). It makes it far easier to control them. There is nothing wrong with celebrating ones heritage but when used to pit one group against another it is wrong.
That's not true. Individuals want to identify with their origins; the melting pot idea of everyone being an American doesn't fly.
Yes, we are all Americans; but we are also originally from somewhere else. There's nothing wrong with that. If a person has and Italian name for example; people will always ask, "what kind of name is that"?
Even you searched to find the origin of the name of that student who killed himself at UCF; why? Because it wasn't Johnson or Smith?
He was an American. This concept of pitting one group against another is rightwing propaganda.

You do?It's not that hard to understand really. Cyprus only has the two industry's: the military bases and their hoard of keen-eyed military personnel ever watchful for a bargain or opportunity, and the international money laundering scheme, unconnected to the military in any way, of course. That's it, end of story. Because the money-laundering scheme operated through the handful of banks established for that purpose, containing 4 or 5 times the GDP of the entire "nation," it was severely affected when those few banks decided they'd better at least pretend to be actual banks and lent a LOT of their fraudulent depositors' money on bullshit, as criminals everywhere are wont to do, see: horse-racing or gambling or blonde whores.

Well, the horses lost, the gambling went south, and the leggy blondes went back to the smelly sheiks and oil barons they'd started out with. So where'd that leave the little tax-haven? In the shitter, that's where. The whole country is nothing but a sham corporation set up to launder money. It's somewhat disingenuous of you to feign surprise when the cops raid the place.

i think what you're saying is...He will need to VERY convincing with his flip-flops. Unlike the last guy you put up.

but that whole 'I don't want to say if I voted for Clinton' thing will be the thing that the FOXbot faction won't be able to get around. you have yet to comment on it, so.....there ya go.

does it ever bother you that while running down the Dems for supposed racism you have to run down blacks at the same time to try to prove your 'point'?
and i thought carol was the Topix hypocrite.
I want nothing more than for blacks and minorities to find a way out of their circumstances. My wish is that even more will come back to the republican party.

But you can't help those who either don't want to be helped or would rather be dependent - that includes all races and colors.

The broken structure within the black community is something only they can change. And more black leaders are needed to send a clearer message.

But to simply ignore it and pretend like it's not contributing to the problems we now face is like ignoring the pink elephant in the room and pretending it's not there.

Poverty among single unwed mothers without a father in the home is the most significant contributor to the welfare crisis. It's a pretty big pink elephant.

That was a very powerful interview, unforgettable. Did it resonate to the Republican party? I doubt it.
Did you see Michelle Bachman babbling on about loving and helping people? What a joke she is. I hope she runs for President again, for entertainments sake.
She barely won her own district last time__doubtful she'll pull it off again.

Most of her financial support comes from outside her district.

it's a tax haven for rich folks who's trying to put it back on the poor folks while it tries to protect the rich.

they should do what Iceland did. let the banks go bust, wiping out those foreign deposits, while protecting domestic deposits.

What a load, no one is shaking in his boots at all and if Dr. Carson allows himself to be used by the Republicans, then he is a damn fool and has no idea what he's signing up for.
You don't want a person of color, or a minority, or a woman candidate, everyone knows it so stop pretending. The man is not a politician, they'll eat him alive. The good old white boy club will not allow it and you are delusional.

Isn't it the truth. Too many Demorats crossed over in the primaries and gave us the weakest candidate (McCain).
