i'm not one of those who uses this forum to defend white privilege.
that would be every right wing loser who thinks that the white supremacy BS they spout is actually worth listening to. at times all i can do is sit here and laugh at you folks who act like your hate filled proclamations are mainstream.
sucks to be in the minority eh? and until you nutjobs start to act like normal human beings that's the way it's going to stay.
To paraphrase your racist diatribe, "until you folks start to act like normal human beings you will continue to inhabit the bottom rung of society."

So, racist Sonic has never watched Fox but judges it to be racist based on opinions posted on Communist websites.

Time to ignore this ignorant turkey who checks out nothing and just spits back packaged talking points.

Scandal In The Wind: Senator Mitch McConnell Sticks Fork In IRS Kerfuffle

The mainstream media took to the IRS “scandal” like a bunny in heat to a pair of mink slippers, immediately proclaiming the agency’s alleged targeting of conservative groups for additional tax-exempt-application scrutiny “Nixonian,” and even directly accusing the President of ordering it. The same reporters and commentators who, a month ago, were fitting President Obama for a Joe Biden pardon have fallen silent now that Rep. Elijah Cummings has helped to crush the dream of a White House link to the scandal, but at least Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is facing facts.

“There might be some folks out there waiting for a hand signed memo from President Obama to Lois Learner to turn up,” he said, referring to conservatives and Republicans who have charged that the IRS was following White House instructions when it targeted conservative non-profits.“Do not hold your breath.”

…“I am prepared to say, and did say today, that the President and his political allies encouraged this kind of bureaucratic overreach by their public comments,” he said.“But that’s quite different from saying they ordered it.”

so let's get a count on all of the failed attempts to stick Obama with a 'scandal'

Fast and Furious: fail.

Benghazi: fail.

IRS: fail.

i know i missed one or 2. anyone?

not that hard to see why you spend your days calling everyone else a racist.
2nd KKK was to the Right big time and its home base along with 22 other states was right here in Indiana in Indianapolis which is why Indiana is considered Conservative which even the KKK here in Indiana 1920's fought change.

Climate scientists have recently started lowering their warming forecasts.

“There are two conceivable explanations — and neither is very pleasant for us,” said Storch.“The first possibility is that less global warming is occurring than expected because greenhouse gases, especially CO2, have less of an effect than we have assumed. This wouldn’t mean that there is no man-made greenhouse effect, but simply that our effect on climate events is not as great as we have believed.”

“The other possibility is that, in our simulations, we have underestimated how much the climate fluctuates owing to natural causes,” Storch added.
