<quoted text> You're the one that inferred there was some type of black , by inferring that had a white presidential candidate done what Obama had done by going to a church where the pastor sometimes spoke with racist rhetoric. He would've been disqualifies. All I did was point out evidence to the contrary. I don't hold grudges. Who's to say the laws of nature doesn't? It's called karma!
Obama's "spiritual mentor" blames all white people for all the ills in the black community.

His "spiritual mentor" is the one holding a grudge. Obama too, apparently.

<quoted text> No need to reiterate now, Realtime said most of it. Think about this tho, using your analogy. Do farmers call their livestock, mules, horses ect... Do they call them derogatory names? A horse is a horse, & a mule a mule! Horses & mules don't do house work , or make good sex partners. What I'll tell you is, read the Willie Lynch letter, google it & you'll see how it equates to todays black struggles & gang wars! You said honest Flack. Google it, read it, & give me your honest opinion!
Some farmers I have know do call their livestock names when not behaving. Then there are a lot who name their nonfood livestock with human names just like slaves. I will read it but IMO this is the 21th century and $50 trillion dollars has been spent. Again IMO some serious attitude adjustments need to be done to stop the downward spiral and for people to learn to TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES!!! We are not heading, under this administration, in the right direction!!!

<quoted text> Melvin doesn't think anyone can do anything without a union card! I know in Virginia getting a contractors license is not easy. No matter the trade.
If Leo's really a teacher, there's no question, it's harder to get a contractor's license than it is a teacher's license.

We had to take "continuing education" courses every year to renew our license, Leo just had to set up a meeting place.

<quoted text>There have been more anti-US attacks & abortive attacks (not including Iraq & Afghanistan) in the last four years than in the previous seven years, after 9/11.
This statistic isn’t widely cited at government briefings, in the main news media nor on most college campuses, because those elites would like to pretend that the terror problem ended with Osama bin Laden.
That includes the president & his top aides, who’ve spent the better part of the last two years relying on a mistaken conclusion.
They’ve pretended that there really was no terror problem, but only an al Qaeda problem, & that that problem was solved because bin Laden’s death was a death blow for terror.
They were wrong then, & they’re wrong now, dead wrong.
Absolutely correct! Just think about all the protests against the USA the day the Benghazi terrorism occurred. They were burning USA flags and effigies of Obama in more countries all over the world than ever before.

Obama's apology tour backfired. We are less respected in the world now because of Obama.

Agree - The left/Democrats/socialists are clueless!!!!

(this could get old. in a hurry.)
Both FOX and CNN talking heads are making fools out of themselves imo. Meghan Kelly at FOX is starting to get pizzed with both the expert analysts and field mutts.

Speaking of gay marriage, New Zealand just joined 13 other countries legalizing same-sex marriage.

Which countries you ask?

Uruguay.
Argentina.
The Netherlands.
Belgium.
Canada.
Spain.
South Africa.
Norway.
Sweden.
Iceland.
Portugal.
Argentina.
Denmark.

No surprise. Either the most liberal or inconsequential countries on the planet.

Think of all the countries in Asia and Europe alone who refuse to redefine marriage. Most countries in South America even get it.

Why the GOP Remains in Bush’s Shadow

Bush’s continued popularity on the right is relevant to the debate over what Republicans have to do to get out from under the shadow of the Bush administration. Unfortunately for the GOP, the party is in something of a bind. Most Americans outside the party view Bush unfavorably because they regard him (correctly) as a failed president whose policies inflicted serious damage on the country. Most people inside the party see him in an entirely different light. If 65% of Republicans and 60% of self-identified conservatives view Bush favorably, it’s not surprising that there is so much resistance on the right to acknowledging Bush’s errors and learning from them. It’s also possible Bush’s overall unpopularity may be contributing to his popularity inside the Republican tent out of some sort of perverse need to defy the prevailing view that Bush’s presidency was a disaster. There is a strange rally effect in partisan politics that can cause people to remain loyal to their worst leaders simply for the sake of opposing critics from the other “side.” Even worse than this are the loyalists that genuinely can’t see failure for what it is.

These things are still going on in Africa and the middle east. I don't hear any of you libards on hear screaming about the burkas. The sexual mutilations of little girls. The selling of boys and girls into the sex trade. The stoning to death of woman for simply walking outside without a male member of the family. How about the stoning death of women who are raped?
The peaceful religion of Islam!! What a joke!!!
You libtards are the biggest hypocrites on the planet!!!
How did we go from having an honest discussion Flack, to having a political one & throwing insults? Nothing you or I can do about what goes on the middle east or Africa. You'll find out that most of those people you wish to rescue, don't want to be rescued at all. It's not their religion, it's their culture, at least in Africa's case. You're talking about people still living amongst wild animals, & living off the land. They're considered insane by our definition.

As for the middle east, you said it. It's their religion! Nobody tells to how to worship, or you have to worship. Those same people won't give up their religion to save their lives, or the lives of their children. Look at Syria & Iraq. We"liberated"them, only for them to turn on us. You can't change the thousands of years old culture of people, just because you don't feel it's right. I feel sorry for them, but it's their culture. It's what they love. Everything else you described is criminal activity. It's their law enforcements job to handle that. Nothing we can do. This is Americas problem, worrying about other peoples business. We have our own poor, our own homeless, our own jobless, our own sick, our own children to worry about. We need to focus on all those situations!

Before I forget, Mark Mazzetti of the NYT has written another book. This one titled "The Way of The Knife" and it should be a good read for those whose heads aren't stuck completely up their azzes.
