That's just the lie you've been fed enough times so you now believe it.

Why is Chicago and Detroit two of the worst cities for minorites to live? They have been run by democrats since time and memorial?

Republicans want as many opportunities as possible for everyone without government intrusion.

Obama managed to convince the majority that dependency is much better as long as someone else is paying for it.

Is that what you believe? Because Obama certainly does and most democrats do as well.

What's actually ironic is many liberals think it's conservative churches preaching hatred and bias from the pulpit.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Just look at Rev. Wright. He preached white people were to blame for all of the ills in the black community even in the present day and time, justifying a deep and profound hatred for America - nothing about forgiveness and relying on God's amazing grace.

He was Obama's spiritual mentor.

There are already two ships here with the lasers. They are bad to the bone. They are housed in clam domes that protect them from the weather till needed. Bullets soon to be a thing of the past!

Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/obama-needs-to-ho... — "If a president finds himself in the role of a political scientist, he has a problem — even when his political science lesson is 100 percent accurate.

When President Obama was asked by Jonathan Karl of ABC News at his Tuesday news conference whether he still had “the juice” to get his agenda through Congress, I wish he had replied,“Lighten up. This is the country where hope lives.”

He could have used the flow of the news to make this case. For example, many of the senators who sided with the gun lobby against the vast majority of Americans who favor background checks — particularly Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake and Rob Portman — are taking enormous grief from their constituents.

This shows that one defeat on one vote is not a permanent setback when the tally in question reflects an old reality (that only hardcore gun owners care about the issue) and ignores a new reality (that supporters of gun sanity are finally mobilized, and angry). On guns, the times are changing.

They are changing on other issues, too. Obama’s warm praise for the decision of the NBA’s Jason Collins to come out as gay was uncontroversial. If you think back just a decade or two, this is astonishing. And if immigration reform is no slam-dunk, the politics have shifted sharply toward action.

Add to this a New York Times/CBS News poll released Wednesday showing that while 46 percent of Americans believe the sequester cuts will hurt the economy, only 1 in 10 thinks they will help it. The austerity Republicans champion has few takers."

Got my first .410 on my 6th birthday. But had already been taught that every gun was considered loaded even if you just unloaded it. Never point it at anything you don't plan on shooting and never put your finger on the trigger till you are ready to pull it.

Pope Compares Bangladesh Factory Workers To 'Slave Labor'

Pope Francis has equated the wages paid to Bangladeshi workers who died in last week's building collapse to "slave labor."

More than 400 people were killed in the April 24 collapse of the Rana Plaza building outside Dhaka; the building housed several garment factories that made products for Western brands.

News reports say that workers at the factories housed in the building were paid about 38 euros a month (about $50).

"This was the payment of these people who have died," the pope said, according to Vatican Radio. "And this is called 'slave labor!' "

Francis' comments came at a Mass Wednesday to mark the feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

"Not paying a just [wage], not providing work, focusing exclusively on the balance books, on financial statements, only looking at making personal profit. That goes against God!" the pope added, according to Vatican Radio

Aunt Bettie Lou, "Christians have a voice. It's how we use it and if we are standing behind the truth in speaking out." Nothing says "I love Jesus" quite like killing his pets and puking on his furniture.'Research by David C. Barker of the University of Pittsburgh and David H. Bearce of the University of Colorado uncovered that belief in the biblical end-times was a motivating factor behind resistance to curbing climate change.

“[T]he fact that such an overwhelming percentage of Republican citizens profess a belief in the Second Coming (76 percent in 2006, according to our sample) suggests that governmental attempts to curb greenhouse emissions would encounter stiff resistance even if every Democrat in the country wanted to curb them,” Barker and Bearce wrote in their study, which will be published in the June issue of Political Science Quarterly.'..." You want to make it even grimmer, add the further religious presumption that God doesn't mind if His true believers leave the place a wreck, no skin off anybody's nose, not like anybody or anything is going to be using the place after he picks his chosen us up on his holy charter bus to the big casino in the sky. Now that's narcissism. " And the one thing everyone can agree on about Jesus--he was no narcissist. Check this out: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/01/1206...

A US jury has awarded $240m (£154m) to 32 mentally disabled men who suffered decades of abuse while working at a turkey processing company in Iowa.

Jurors in Davenport heard how the men had been kicked, verbally abused and denied toilet breaks by their employers from Henry's Turkey Service.

One expert said the disabled workers - who were each paid only $65 per month - had been "virtually enslaved".
