Aunt Bettie Lou, "It was another Democrat, FDR, and his New Deal " There can be little doubt, however, that the New Deal in many instances was a boon to African Americans. In one sense, this was a question of degree. Aid to African-Americans prior to 1933, especially in the South, had been nearly non-existent; the federal help that did come with the New Deal, therefore, was significant. In addition, New Deal agencies like the WPA, the Public Works Administration (PWA), and the Farm Security Administration (FSA) grew more sensitive throughout the 1930s to the needs of African-Americans, largely because of the leadership of Roosevelt appointees at those agencies. Indeed, African Americans found significant allies in the administration, from Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes to the First Lady herself, Eleanor Roosevelt. Enough blacks, like Mary McLeod Bethune, found themselves in leadership positions that there was even talk of a "black Cabinet" of FDR advisers." ... during the summer of 1941, A. Philip Randolph threatened the Roosevelt administration with a 100,000 person "March on Washington" if discrimination was not ended in the military and the defense industries. Roosevelt capitulated and issued an Executive Order creating a Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC).

Roosevelt's performance, then was deeply flawed, but blacks rendered their own verdict when in 1936 they abandoned their historic allegiance to the Republicans, the party of Abe Lincoln, and moved in large numbers over to the Democrats, the party of FDR, where they have been ever since. One of Roosevelt's severest critics, Ralph Bunch, said the FDR era "represented a radical break with the past," and W.E.B. Du Bois concluded that Roosevelt "gave the American Negro a kind of recognition in political life which the Negro had never before received." And FDR's Democrat successor Truman ended segregation in the U S armed forces. Check this out: http://millercenter.org/president/fdroosevelt...

LBJ was a stone-cold racist and warmonger who used black boys as cannon fodder.

Because California is firmly in the democrat control and votes? No need to pander and patronize. Just keep the border porous and the welfare checks coming.
Plus the fact that the fires tend to be in Republican areas of California, not the vote-rich urban ghettos and barrios.

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.

You just said some very powerful words. "The dignity of man 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."

That is exactly what conservatives stand for - preserving the dignity of all people.

Is dependency on others preserving dignity? Is envy and coveting what others have and not being content with what you have earned yourself preserving dignity?

Dignity is not defined by possessions or wealth or power. It's defined by being treated equally with equal opportunities. You just said so yourself.

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.

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.”)

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.
