Southern Whites' Shift to the GOP Predates the '60s
I by-and-large agree with the thrust of Jamelle Bouie’s recent American Prospect article, which argues that Republicans badly misapprehend the reason(s) African-Americans generally vote for Democratic candidates. Too many conservatives assert that African-Americans have developed a “false consciousness” and simply need to be shown the error of their ways before they’ll start supporting Republicans. Asking “What’s the matter with black people?” simply isn’t going to get the GOP very far in its minority outreach efforts.
But in the course of this argument, Bouie makes the following statement:“White Southerners jumped ship from Democratic presidential candidates in the 1960s, and this was followed by a similar shift on the congressional level, and eventually, the state legislative level. That the [last] two took time doesn’t discount the first.”

A logical consequence of the Democrat party shifting to represent the interests of minorities and the poor against the interests of the white middle class.

Obama has been similarly close to the Saudis.)
Saudi Arabia is the center of the Sunni branch of Islam. It is also the center of the most radical sect of Islam … the “Wahhabis”(also called “Salafis”), the most radical and terrorist-minded Sunni sect. But the U.S. has long supported the Madrassa schools within Saudi Arabia which teach radical Wahabi beliefs.
The U.S. has also supported the most radical and dangerous Sunni elements around the world.
For example, the U.S. National Security Adviser admitted that the U.S. created, organized and armed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets. The Mujahadeen are predominately Sunni.
The Mujahadeen eventually morphed into Al Qaeda, which is a Sunni organization.
During various times and places, the U.S. has also backed the Muslim Brotherhood … another Sunni group.
We supported Al Qaeda Sunni terrorists in Libya and Mali,
We’ve long supported Sunni terrorists in Chechnya.
We support MEK terrorists – who are Sunnis who target Shias – in Iran.
We support the brutal Sunni government in Bahrain as it crushes its majority Shia population whenever it pushes for democratic reform.
We supported Al Qaeda Sunnis in Bosnia.
The “rebels” in Syria who we’ve been supporting are Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood.
As the New York Times reports this week:
In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce.
Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.
Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.
Why should Americans care if our government is backing the Sunnis over the Shiites?
Because we are supporting the side which carries out most of the terrorism. Indeed, Sunni Muslims commit most of the terrorist acts worldwide.
So you've got nothing on the controversial Qatar-Brotherhood alliance??? You need to find a better source for your bullshyt cut and pastes.

Did you know that the Qatari's are also Wahabi?

It truly does exist.
With Gosnell's trial going to jury today, late term abortion and infanticide comes to the forefront.
Gosnell is stuck claiming the infants were already dead and he had a fetish about nearly decapitating late term infants. Unbelievable!
The Left has sit up a situation were the open window for abortions will be pushed back earlier in the pregnancy.
Really. This was the video??

Show me where I said anything about a video.

Memory going? Someone earlier referenced the audio of this video and you -without looking it up-decided to attack the messenger.

What is your opinion on abortion clinic infanticide? That is the issue.

"When leveraging government investment, whose job is it to maximize job creation for low-income people, anyway?

This was the big question that emerged from a recent convening of Philadelphia stakeholders from local businesses, workforce training providers, and city agencies. The specific question at hand was how to leverage Philadelphia’s planned $1.2 billion investment in green stormwater infrastructure to maximize job creation impacts for low-income communities. Intrigued by research on the job creation potential for the City of Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters plan, the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN) and the Philadelphia Water Department invited both ELP Advisors and Living Cities to share their recommendations at this convening to help turn the ideas into action. The conversation quickly turned to who held the responsibility to maximize the local economic impact of these government investments and who is responsible for maximizing the job creation benefits for low-income people."

Afghan President Hamid Karzai confirmed today that his national security team had been receiving payments from the U.S. government for the past 10 years.
Karzai revealed the payments when he was asked about a story published in The New York Times.
The article said the CIA had given the Afghan National Security Council tens of millions of dollars in monthly payments delivered in suitcases, backpacks and plastic shopping bags in return for access to his inner circle.

The cash payments are the first known to be given directly to President Karzai.

OBAMA BEEN PAYING FOR DOPE THE LAST 6 YEARS

Sister arrested for marijuana cultivation. Mom arrested for shop lifting. No wonder the uncle was quick to call them crazy.
