Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

But I do agree too many policeman seem too eager to jump the gun, so to speak, and many are under too much pressure to do so.

Too bad, really.
Hey dumass, I've already escaped it as fat as demographic it's concerned. I live in a 3 br rancher in the burbs but, the white people I live around are nothing like y'all. 1st if all, you have it twisted. Nobody runs from the good because they're scared, only y'all!

Over a considerable lifespan, I've accumulated enough experience to know that cops are dangerous, stupid and necessary. That's Life!

I've been harassed, interrupted, berated and flummoxed by cops and cop mentality.

One time, I was away from home and my girlfriend heard a knock at the door. She pulled the window curtains back to see who was standing on the porch at the door. It is a hot August night at 3AM and there stands a guy wearing a leather jacket, leather gloves, a chuck and is carrying a brown paper bag. He initially doesn't notice her peeking through the curtain. He suddenly waves at someone across the street in the darkness between buildings.

She taps the window and asks through the glass what he wants. He feigns a hearing loss and asks her to open the door so he can hear her better. She says "Hold on!" and quickly call the police. She explains what she encounters and that the guy won't leave her porch. The desk sergeant says "Well, what do you want me to do miss? I can't arrest him for standing on your porch". She insists further that it's 3AM, she's alone and this strange character will not take no for an answer. He keeps pounding on the door. Still, the cop says he can't send a squad car over. She slams the phone down, picks up her gun, cocks it, takes off the safety and quickly yanks the curtain wide open. Pointing the gun at his face through the glass, she screams "Get off my f*ckin' porch or I'll blow yer f*ckin' head off."

He raises his gloved hands and quickly jumps off the porch and begins running. As he does, he is waving away someone across the street.

Cops are useless. The 2nd Amendment fills in for them.

#2. The Pledge of Allegience, written by Francis Bellamy, a Christian socialist, viewed his Pledge as an 'inoculation' to protect immigrants and native-born - but insufficiently patriotic Americans - from the 'virus' of radicalism and subversion.
Bellamy did believe in social equality strictly from a Christian viewpoint but also believed there were other races which we could not assimilate without lowering our racial standard.
In other words, a Christian socialist with unrealistic but rather noble intentions who sounded like a racist. An enigma.
So I'd say your source was partially correct but completely out of context.

#5. When most people hear the words,“tax hike,” they naturally assume raising income taxes. But tax rates dropped dramatically across-the-board during Reagan’s tenure.

Many of Reagan’s so-called “tax increases” were actually examples of ending deductions.

One of the tax increases was the Highway Revenue Act of 1982, a temporary increase in the federal gas tax from 4 to 9 cents. Another was a cigarette tax. These are real tax increases, but not to be confused with the income tax.

Reluctantly, Reagan agreed to the largest tax increase of his presidency, the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982, after being offered a deal by the Democrats to agree to cut spending in return. The Democratic Congress then promptly proceeded to ignore the planned spending cuts.

Sound familiar?

Reagan cut more taxes than raised them.

So I would say your source is intentionally misleading on this one.

IMHO, to be a great Law Enforcement Professional, it takes a special, creative talent. Some of this can be taught but the majority of the talent is inbred, innate and special to the individual.

Problem: too many wackos or those individuals lacking the fundamental talents are drawn in to Law Enforcement. Like Trayvon Martins at one extreme with Barny Fifes at the other.

Brother Kwamie, the corrupt former Detroit Mayor, had cop bodyguards who were actual felons. He hired felons!

Worse, Detroit hires felons in general to be cops. I've read that L.A. hires felon Gang Members because of their valued "experience" on the street. Like hiring prostitutes for sex therapy clinics.

Cops: can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.

When it comes to making higher education more affordable, Washington has a go-to answer: "Sorry, we can't afford it." But when the Wall Street banks that crashed our economy ask for a favor, it seems like there's no limit to Washington's generosity.
Case in point: While federal student loan rates are set to hit 6.8% on July 1st, banks can still borrow money from the government for a mere 0.75% interest.
We treat our corporations better than our children. That's not what parents do. Plain and simple.
Elizabeth Warren and DFA are working to fix that double-standard. If a student wants a little help paying for their education, they should get the same deal as Wall Street's biggest banks. Senator Reid has scheduled a hearing on Elizabeth Warren's new Student Loan Bill this week. Write your Congressmen and urge them to stand with Elizabeth Warren. For the first time in history, Americans owe more in student debt than credit card bills. For a new graduate, that burden means sacrificing dreams -- buying a home, opening a business, starting a family. It often means struggling simply to make ends meet.
This is our next crisis. If we don't act now, we cripple our kids' futures, and set our entire economy up to fail again. "If you're one of the 37 million Americans with student loan debt, you're in for a real treat come July 1. That's when interest rates on federal student loans are set to rise to 6.8 percent—double the current rate of 3.4 percent. That deadline has lawmakers scrambling for a fix. There are a bunch of proposals out there, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for students to be allowed to pay the low, low rate that big banks pay for short-term borrowing; a plan President Barack Obama laid out in his budget in April; and the GOP plan that just passed the House—a plan Obama hates." Student Loan Debt Is a Beast. Here Are Elizabeth Warren's, President Obama's, and the GOP's Plans to Fix It.
