Aunt Bettie Lou, "Not all democrats were racists. Only the southern democrat bloc." 'There is no Negro problem. There is no Southern problem. There is no Northern problem. There is only an American problem.'...'The great phrases of that purpose still sound in every American heart, North and South: "All men are created equal." "Government by consent of the governed." "Give me liberty or give me death." And those are not just clever words, and those are not just empty theories. In their name Americans have fought and died for two centuries and tonight around the world they stand there as guardians of our liberty risking their lives. Those words are promised to every citizen that he shall share in the dignity of man. This dignity cannot be found in a man's possessions. It cannot be found in his power or in his position. It really rests on his right to be treated as a man equal in opportunity to all others. It says that he shall share in freedom. He shall choose his leaders, educate his children, provide for his family according to his ability and his merits as a human being.
To apply any other test, to deny a man his hopes because of his color or race or his religion or the place of his birth is not only to do injustice, it is to deny Americans and to dishonor the dead who gave their lives for American freedom. Our fathers believed that if this noble view of the rights of man was to flourish it must be rooted in democracy. This most basic right of all was the right to choose your own leaders. The history of this country in large measure is the history of expansion of the right to all of our people.'President Lyndon B. Johnson (southern democrat) Check this out: http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/johnson....
The economic crisis could have been a wake-up call to all Americans. We had become a nation where the Almighty Dollar was all that mattered.

It was sure to be our undoing sooner or later.

But before we even had time to regroup and rethink our priorities, we got Obamacare. We got bigger government. We got a "vision" from one man who wants to radicalize this nation beyond recognition.

Now we just have to hope we avoid another Great Depression that will make the first one seem like a walk in the park.

We would have learned our lesson had we been given the opportunity. I fear that golden opportunity has now come and gone.

"tax cut entitlements"? What a bozo, you don't even know what yur talking about.
To the contrary, once someone believes that all resources belong to the government, it is easy to believe that any tax cut is an "entitlement."

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)

How To Impeach President Obama & VP Biden Simultaneously. It Takes a Day, a Majority + 219 Votes
2. Q: Why is it so simple?
A: Because ejecting a person from high office is political, not judicial. The only punishment to be meted out is removal from office.
http://pushbacknow.net/2013/04/26/iou/
Sure stupid, the House could impeach if they could find any kind of impeachable offense but it then goes to the Senate for trial and the Democrats control that body. The majority in the House, even Republicans aren't as delusional as you and your ilk and know if they were to do something like that it would cost them in 2014.

There was never a southern bloc of Republican racists in this country's history.
The NAACP was started by black republicans. All blacks were republicans in 1909.
In fact, blacks elected to public office from the late 1800s to 1935 were republicans. Every single one.
The Southern Bloc Republicans all voted against the Civil Rights Law so you are wrong once again.

Trillion dollar a year deficits tend to make things look better than they really are, as you're likely gay and have no kids you don't have any concerns about who will pay n the bill.
Trilion dollar deficits stemming from the Recession.

Your problem is that you blame the ones trying to fix the problem while giving a pass to those that created them.

I have kids& I care. That is why I will never ever vote for a Republican in state or federal elections. When you vote Republican, that candidates views are irrelevant because they always yield to party leadership.

The best way to decrease the deficits is to grow the economy. Yet Republicans vote against stimulus actions. They put their party's future electoral needs aead of this country's needs.

Always had trouble with that word. Don't know why. Meant to do a spellcheck but forgot before sending it.
Obama was brought up largely by his grandparents. They lived modestly but Obama attended Hawaii's top prep academy.
After Columbia University, he attended Harvard Law School and taught at the University of Chicago Law School.
Obama had many doors opened for him. The question surrounding who opened them for him remains unanswered.
Colleges typically extend part & full ride scholarships to promising students who can not afford their tuition.

Now, Flack, you looked it up & you saw this graph. Are you really this dishonest?
I realize you can't understand what you read but you are wrong. Wasn't a graph either. The numbers were basically flat till Nov 2008. I'm sorry this burst your Obama bubble but the numbers are right. Obama sucks!
