Barack Obama, our next President

Right? NJ seemed surprised at the reaction by people when he said that to a white woman at a McDonalds visiting a relative in a southern state. He wanted to blame it on racism.

I had to remind him what is and isn't appropriate to say anywhere.

Hope he gets it now.

What typical whites are you talking about?
What street?
What reaction?
Why negative?
You make sweeping statements and continue not to want to explain them.
Note I said typical, not all! Why would anyone have a negative reaction to anyone on a crowded city street? These are things you could've deciphered for yourself. Now again, I didn't say all but, put a black dude in our everyday winter wear (a hoodie) on a street alone with a white person, man or woman & see the response. I will go as far as to say, " your negative response is respected by me because, some dudes be waiting for a scenario like that to happen." Now flip the characters in the scenario, it's rare for blacks to have a negative response because, the chances of a white dude pulling a gun & robbing you are slim. You're looking for racist motives & I'm just giving you reality!

Granny is in trouble or lets hope the printing press does not run out of ink...

"And if you want to talk truly big picture, for the U.S. government as a whole, projecting the current gap between revenue and expenditures indefinitely, the infinite horizon fiscal gap is a whopping $222 trillion! To close that gap would require not a 32 percent immediate and permanent tax hike in Social Security FICA taxes or a 22 percent immediate and permanent cut in Social Security benefits, but either a 64 percent immediate and permanent tax hike in all federal taxes or a 40 percent immediate and permanent cut in all expenditures apart from servicing official debt."

But you and carol don't count anything you're receiving? "conventional wisdom that the poor, and especially more minorities, get the most out of America's "safety net." But recent data shows the reverse is true. Most entitlements are received by the elderly, disabled, or working white households, and minority households receive disproportionately little from the public purse.

Analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reveals that the poorest fifth of American households received 32% government benefits distributed in 2010. The top fifth of income earners receive 10% of benefits - most likely through social security.

The study also found that poor African Americans receive disproportionately less welfare than poor whites. Black Americans make up 22% of the poor, but overall receive 14% of government benefits.

The elderly received around half of benefits paid out. Nonelderly disabled people received 20% of the 2010 entitlements pot, while 18% of government benefits go to working people on lower incomes.

Subsidies for the rich like oil subsidies, corporate tax breaks &, the fact that the rich like Romney pay far less than the average citizen in tax% doesn't count as welfare huh?

Galt wants to eliminate all subsidies, but if you lefties want to equate welfare with subsidies, Galt is pleased to throw that turkey on the chopping block as well.

The definition of typical
combining or exhibiting the essential characteristics of a group

So what do you think 'typical white' implies?

You have never been in an inner city situation-have you? South Chicago has various groups of numerous races claiming territory of certain streets. The blacks distrust whites appearing in their neighborhood.

Being leery of someone in your neighborhood who you do not know is not racist maybe a little paranoid.

Hoodies wore by anyone on a darken street causes most people to wonder as the person has covered his face from being clearly seen much like the old west bandana was used for.

In 2008 with his reverb/digital delay sound system and his rock star light show the president drew a cheering crowd of 200,000 here in Germany. Today with his popularity waning, the big stage gone, he draws a measly 6,000. To make matters worse the setting sun quickly put a glare on the teleprompter causing the once god booming voice to stutter and stammer as he tried to finish the speech.

Listen, you Bettie Lou, Galt, DB, & whoever has a problem with a man calling a female "babygirl" are just old & stuck in the past. Anyone from my era knows it's not said with derogatory intent. What kills me is you take just the word babygirl from what I said. laid out the entire scenario. My cousin from down there didn't say,"yo, don't call her babygirl." He told me to chill because they don't play that down here meaning, " chill boy, they don't play black dudes talking to white girls in public like that." You can't change the meaning of what someone said in a story I told to fit your theory. That is completely stupid!

you are ignorant...

"You may not know it, but the National Football League is a nonprofit organization. It may seem absurd that a collection of teams that generated at least $9 billion in revenue last season would be given tax-exempt status, but the NFL is technically classified as a 501(c)6 organization. Here's how the IRS describes 501(c)6 tax-exempt status:"
