Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ...

There are no words to adequately describe my reaction to this video.
Whatever inspired this man to make that speech, let's hope it's contagious. In fact, let's get down on our knees and pray it is.
The voice of common sense and reason. What America is starving to hear.
Oh, for goodness sakes, bets, what america is starving to hear is, "Oh, BOB! that's the biggest one I've ever seen!" Well, half of us are... the other half want to hear, "Hey, honey, I bought you a 5 carat perfect pink diamond today to thank you for all you do around here. here you go, sweetie. Now, I have to go back to work, are you going to be alright here by the pool until I get home... around... 11 pm or so?"

It is telling that while President Obama has recently done interview after interview in which he has weighed in with his support on same-sex marriage, by comparison, his support of affirmative action in recent years has seemed perfunctory at best.(A Google search of "Obama on affirmative action" yields 44.4 million results, while a search of "Obama on same sex marriage" yields 506 million.)

I am glad that LGBT Americans are finally on their way to being accepted fully as Americans who have just as much right to the American dream as the rest of us. But I think it is unfortunate that a year from now, it is very possible that white, gay Americans will talk about their status as minorities with nostalgia, if they talk about it at all.

Meanwhile, their brown and black LGBT brothers and sisters will still struggle daily for economic equality -- in part because politicians, media and the Supreme Court were too busy focusing on making one already privileged group happy while forgetting that the struggles of the others still exist.

Weren't you ever disciplined by your parents?
Why is it liberals equate discipline with a beating? Were you beaten as a child? I sure hope not. If so, at least that would explain your own personal view.
If not, were you ever disciplined? And did you never do anything wrong as a child? Because the perfect child doesn't exist.
Most children whose parents cared enough to teach them right from wrong when they were growing up love them even more after becoming adults themselves.
True for me anyway.
Not really, it wasn't necessary, my father gave serious looks that we're extremely effective, mother pulled our hair a few times. We were obedient. Different times, older parents, farm life etc.
I don't believe in corporal punishment either, didnt hit my children, violence begets violence.

The government’s employment numbers maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics support Mr. Jealous‘ latest criticism. The black unemployment rate was 12.7 percent when President George W. Bush finished his second term and Mr. Obama took office.

It soared over the first three years of Mr. Obama’s first term to 16.7 percent by September 2011, the worst jobless rate for black Americans since 1983. Unemployment among black teenagers exploded to 39.3 percent in July 2012.

“Statistics show that the African-American community is in bad shape under the Obama administration,” the widely read black website Your Black World said this week.Earlier this month, Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, Ohio Democrat, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, let loose with some stinging criticisms of Mr. Obama’s record on his appointments in his second term.“The people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity,” she said in a letter to the president.“Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you’ve received from the African-America community.”Ms. Fudge and other CBC members complain that Mr. Obama has not devoted enough attention in his agenda to many of the critical economic issues within the black community, especially severe unemployment.”I think we are going to hear more voices of opposition coming from all sectors of black leadership, and certainly from the most hard-pressed sections of the black population,” said Tony Monteiro, professor of African-American studies at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Unfortunately, most black leaders do not understand that it is Mr. Obama’s economic policies that have contributed to the high level of unemployment among all Americans, especially blacks.

The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus still think that Mr. Obama’s $800 billion economic-stimulus plan, largely made up of public works, infrastructure and other government spending, was the smart way to create jobs and boost economic growth. If anything, they wanted him to spend more.

There were no economic-growth incentives in his plan, though, that would have boosted venture-capital investment, the mother’s milk of business expansion, new business formation and job creation.

Soon after Mr. Obama’s stimulus plan became effective and the money began flowing out across the country, a look at the list of recipients revealed that it included hundreds of federal agencies and programs. It expanded government programs and maybe some of the money trickled down to workers, but it created relatively few permanent jobs.Once the stimulus funds were spent on roads, bridges and other public works projects, the jobs ended.The proof that Mr. Obama’s Keynesian spending didn’t work is in the numbers: high unemployment that is still skirting 8 percent, and that is 14 percent when you include workers who want and need full-time employment but are forced to take part-time jobs.

The economy isn’t getting stronger, as we can see in the economic-growth numbers that measure the gross domestic product. It grew at a barely moving pace of 0.4 percent in the last three months of 2012, according to the Commerce Department’s latest estimate Thursday. The Federal Reserve says unemployment will remain high this year and next and that economic growth will remain weak for at least the next two years.

Now Mr. Obama is calling for a $9-an-hour minimum wage, which the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus have supported in the past and no doubt support now. This is a job killer, however, particularly for small businesses and especially for minorities. It will kill entry-level jobs, and that will drive black employment even higher.

A whack on the hiney with an open palm of the hand when it's well-deserved avoids violence further down the road.

Children discipline themselves when touching a hot stove. They never do it again.

When it comes to teaching right from wrong, they need a loving parent to teach them the same hot stove analogy.
