Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

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.
Listen, I'm in the liquor store the other say getting the drinks for a BBQ. I walk up to the line, there's a white dude, then QB old black dude &, a white woman (I say woman because she was a little older than me). The white dude pays for his stuff & leaves. The black dude pays for his stuff but, doesn't leave because, he, the white woman &, the cashier are all talking! Make a long story short, the white woman turns to me & says "he (the white dude) scares me." She goes on to tell me that she grew up in a neighborhood full of Blacks & Puerto Ricans &, that she feels more comfortable around Blacks & Puerto Rican men blah blah blah! The point she wasn't you typical white woman so, when I said "not all but, typical" that's just what I meant! Again you try to box me in & paint me as the character you want me to be. As for the never being on real city streets before lol! I won't go into depth but, yes I have, plenty of times. It was in my job description!

I listed items in the platform that were more commonly shared by Tea Party members than certainly Democrats. I never said they were in the Tea Party platform.
Really, Dave these are so commonly shared by the Tea Party that it was not considered important enough to be in their platform?

That is a pretty lame argument.

<quoted text>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.

I don't have any problem with welfare helping those in need. I do have a problem with welfare being abused and Obamaphones being sold for drugs which has recentlybeen exposed as a not so isolated occurrence.

When you figure out how to eliminate the fraud and abuse in the welfare system, we'll talk about the truly needy. Until then, far too much money is being wasted on users and manipulators and the government is "too expansive" to know how to deal with it much less solve it.

You have to first acknowledge this is a fact. Otherwise, go back to spellchecking.

How can anyone hire any black people when they refuse to apply? here's a great example for you. I was part of a job fair last Friday. There were over 200 stores and businesses hiring. It was held in a big suburb on the border of Chicago. I saw three black people all day and one was doing the hiring for PACE. Illinois has a true umemployment rate of over 20%--and those collecting unemployment at this time of 11%, one of the highest, if not the highest unemployment rates in the country. These were not low level jobs. But the applicants were sparse. For two days there were 20 applicants for 45,000 a year jobs, even less for 30,000 dollar a year entry level. And still even less for 10-12 dollar an hour entry level jobs. NOW you tell me what is wrong here? you can't give jobs to people who will not apply. I would have thought with all the blather from the liberals that people would have been lined up around the Convention Center fighting to get in. Over 1200 jobs needed to be filled and there were never more applicants than recruiters. O'bama socialism has taken hold-and you liberals are too stupid to see that these people DO NOT want to work when they are getting an O'bama check, an O'bama phone, an O'bama food card. and O'bama housing.

While editing the proof of one of his books, Winston Churchill spotted a sentence that had been clumsily rewritten by the editor to eliminate a preposition at the end. The elder statesman mocked the intention with a comment in the margin: "This is the sort of English up with which I will not put."

LOL

"When it comes to business writing, some people feel paralyzed by grammar. But it’s important to distinguish between the rules that help writing and those that hinder it. There are some outdated “rules” that grammarians have long dismissed as ill-founded and unnecessary...... It's also acceptable to end a sentence with a preposition. A sentence with a terminal preposition may sound far more natural than the same sentence forced into avoiding one.“What will the new product be used for?” sounds much better than “For what purpose will the new product be used?”

http://hbr.org/tip/2013/06/18/go-ahead-and-br...

All you stated in your post above is there is no good reason why this should be a rule but are attempting to bluff.

I am sure if your GED workbooks are not from the sixities that they would tell you this too

No, you listen.

Typical-Exhibiting the qualities, traits, or characteristics that identify a kind, class, group, or category

typical white -would imply that it is typical for whites to act in this manner

third day or retirement?
Yes, nice of you to remember. It's not as bad as I thought.

I work to spread some truth and light on here, do household chores every day, read the internet and maybe watch a TV show.

If hubby's not working a few extra hours, he's home by 2:30. When daughter isn't working or at school, she's home too.

So the days go by pretty fast.

My upcoming project is to sort through hundreds of pictures over the past three or four decades from both my husband's and my pictures and our family's pictures and put them in albums.

Also, I plan to try cooking some new recipes.

But thanks again for remembering.

What is it that you do again? Besides this too, I mean?

Shirley you gest Flacko__you do know that such stats can easily be found online.

Presently, about 60% of US households subscribe to basic cable but that number is beginning to shrink due to newer-faster-cheaper technologies.

So, there ya go tubby__MOST of the country has cable. You're wrong once more.
