Thanks for clearin' that up.
That it is progressing towards less racism is because of the influx of Northeastern liberals and media expansion.
The ignorant also maintain that all the Dixiecrats became Republicans shortly after passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, another big lie.

Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and more, remained Democrats till their dying day.

It's the culture..

You too joining the idiocy?

Dem politicians were very racist as well as many Dems themselves in the sixties and seventies. This is very well documented.

This attitude was rejected by the American public.

Southern Dems eventually also rejected this ideology and showed their disdain by becoming Reps.

Galt's Party's entire ideology is built on BS so there's no way he's going to accept sites whose sole purpose is to expose BS. Regardless of whether or not they source their data or that one of those mentioned was founded by a devout Republican and friend of RR.
Galt would hate RR if he were in the Party today.
I thought Galt was independent.

Why would you or anyone else be so lazy that they refuse to verify info for themselves?

Look for legislation to appropriate more money for Obamacare...for the children.
Lots of lobbying in Cali to include illegal aliens in Obamacare.
The only ones lobbying for illegals to be covered under the Affordable Heathcare Act are the illegals themselves. Its not going to happen.

Under the care act, illegals are free to purchase insurance AND PAY FOR IT. They just can't be part of the exchanges or eligible for Federal premium tax credits and cost sharing reductions. Fair is fair.

No idea, but that is a fact, and not just at Walmart.
Sales are limited to one large box or three small boxes per customer, but even at that, those not at the beginning of the line were shut out.
There are a few shotgun shells available, but nothing else.
No idea? Really?

Its 'cause the NRA convinced the mouth breathers that Obama was coming to take their guns in the wake of Sandy Hook. I was surrounded by guys at work online daily buying all the guns and ammo they could no matter how well I explained to them that the tepid gun control legislation moving through Congress didn't stand a chance.

And, let's see: are they coming to take the guns? No.

Did the legislation pass? No.

Chock one up for Tenzing's amazing powers of precognition and one up for the NRA getting the suckers to quadruple prices and one for the gun industry for reaping the benefit of those sales and a big fat ZERO for the idiots who fell for it.

Strom Thurmond appointed Thomas Moss, an African American, to his staff in 1971, the first such appointment by a member of the South Carolinian congressional delegation.
In 1983, Strom Thurmond supported legislation to make the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. a federal holiday.
Now let's talk about Robert Byrd. But first I'd like to see the source and quote you ascribe to Thurmond.
Essie Mae Washington-Williams, the biracial woman who revealed nine years ago she was the illegitimate daughter of former segregationist Sen. Strom Thurmond, died Monday, her family's spokesman said. She was 87.

Washington-Williams kept her father's identity secret until six months after Thurmond, a segregationist leader for decades, died in June 2003 at age 100.

Her Book is worth reading

Should I file that with your prediction that Romney would win in a landslide?
File it with the prediction that some federal judge will rule that healthcare is a right for all and that Obamacare must include illegal aliens. Then Obama will decline to appeal the ruling.

Republicans didn't leave the blacks. The blacks left them when a democrat persuaded them to go on a diffferent kind of plantation.

Considering blacks were at a disadvantage in the job market, it's hard to blame them.

But don't blame Republicans. They still want them to have the opportunities they were denied to live free and independently of democrat dependency.

Every black was once a republican. The first blacks elected into office until 1935 were republicans.

Can't brag like that when it comes to democrats.

However, you ordering people not to post doesn't work and well I was trying to protect you from looking dumb. But, you seem to think that it is your right to look that way. Have at it.
Try again, when did I "order" you not to post?

I figured it out. You used to be the mullet-headed Camaro guy weren't ya?
I agree with the LOC interpretation rather than yours.

"The second part requires the President to consult with Congress before introducing U.S. armed forces into hostilities or situations where hostilities are imminent, and to continue such consultations as long as U.S. armed forces remain in such situations (50 USC Sec. 1542). "

Do you misunderstand EVERY post you read or do you just project what you WISHED the poster had posted.

I'm on the fence on this one. Don't know if you're really that retarded or just that wishful. You don't sound like a complete idiot but you certainly think like one.

You must be an alter ego for Dave.

This whole series of posts between us was based on you telling someone not to post any comments on your posts.

Just like Dave-you will deny it, name call and what the heck throw in some OMGS while you are it.

We didn't replace anybody with anybody and that's kind of the key to insuring that future generations don't hate you and take your citizens hostage or fly jets into your skyscrapers.

We created al Qaeda, we not only trained and armed them but we taught them to hate us. Without us they wouldn't have existed. Now, what national interest was served?

You RealDave living in a NO work zone. Waiting for your food stamps to come in. Talking on a free obamaphone, wasting away in obamaville on an urban "Blue Magnet" preserve. Definitely a loser, racist and liberal...

That's Floriduh you're talking to.
I was responding to the question "Why is north urban democrat?"

Let me simplify the "gobblydgook" for you.

The Great Migration - the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the South to cities in the North, Midwest and West - occurred during 1916 to 1970.

It had a huge impact on urban life in the United States.

Chicago, New York and other cities saw their black populations expand exponentially.

The social challenges of a new black urban culture would exert enormous influence in the decades to come.

Uhhhh, no. You need to get down to the South more. The cities line up pretty much the same as in the North. People with different colored skin and different cultural values still don't like each other much no matter where they are. Its a survival mechanism from when we wore animal pelts to keep warm.
