You're insane. Have you ever met a Jewish person who didn't immediately mention being Jewish? This is not Nazi Germany where Jews have to hide anymore you nitwit.
Jeans husband is an Israeli, she and I are of Finnish descent, now, go hide, the drones are comin'!!
No,lily. My friends who are Jewish did not immediately mention they were Jewish. Neither did my Atheist, Christian, etc mention their beliefs when first meeting.

I have worked for months with people who were Jewish and did not realize this until something came up that made that information useful for the situation.

You might want to check the election results and current polling for a more realistic view of where different ethnic groups stand regarding support for a political party.
But hey, keep watching Hannity and believing all of it.

You don't trust the polls-remember.

You don't trust anyone or anything that does not support your viewpoint.

But Obama has made fighting man-made climate change a priority, so this guy (Storch) is obviously a racist.

Apparently he must be. Obama just said global warming is the greatest threat facing the world today.
It is rumored that the amnesty bill includes a get in free ticket for individuals "harmed" by global warming. I haven't verified this yet but the bill is another monster of over 844 pages.
You are correct about global warming. There are also special provisions for women and homosexuals. The bill is Christmas tree of leftwing wet dreams.

Bernie Sanders, Vermont Communist, is trying to add a massive Porkulus program to the immigration bill.

It was a group of enlightened black people who had had enough of being led around by the nose as victims and dependents of the democratic party - who realized they could help themselves much better than the government if given opportunities the republican party offered.

The show was spurred by the video made by a state senator in Louisiana who switched to the republican party encouraging more blacks to join him.

There's also a shift among blacks who realize the democratic party doesn't hold their same values either.

Of course, the majority still hold on to false hope and empty promises but more and more are gradually coming to accept that's all the democrats have to offer.

Aunt Battie Lou is the expert spokeswoman for black people!!
I think they should run a candidate like Ted Cruz; with a platform that totally eliminates welfare, foodstamps, ssi, social security, medicare, medicade, Obamacare, abortion, mass deportation of the illegals, etc.
Just go for it Ted, sounds like a real winner to me!!
Not an expert - just listening to what they are saying.

Also, having a clearer understanding why the urban cities in the blue states have so much poverty among blacks - because they were turned away from low skilled industrial jobs after moving out of the south to places like Chicago and New York - run by democrats.

Pity the poor black folks who thought Obama would lift them out of poverty and found that all they got was a crummy Obamaphone and deeper poverty.

Meanwhile the only folks Obama cares about are illegal aliens, homosexuals, and a few rich blacks and Jews in Hollywood.

Oh, yeah, and his crony capitalist friends at General Electric and Goldman Sachs.

Suckers!

The poor folks who will really get screwed are those who are offered insurance by their employers, but can't afford it.
Wrong again!

Where were you?

The day the supreme court upheld the affordable care act. carol was here! Fox got it wrong, said it was toast. carol let out a whoop! Whoop! Whoop!

So funny! Minutes later: UPHELD! LAW OF THE LAND.

It's so simple: medical insurance for everyone.

Only republican trash can be against that.

Then election night number 2 for the Genius:

carol: Romney by a landslide! It's a lock!

All day and night for months like this! With floriduhhhhhh and the rest.

THEY COULDN'T SHOW UP HERE AFTER THE GENIUS WON AGAIN!

CHANGED THEIR NAMES!

oh the shame. What losers. Complete idiots! Couldn't be more wrong. On the wrong side of the people again. All the lies didn't turn it around.

THE MAJORITY SPOKE LOUDLY: PRESIDENT OBAMA!

WE LOVE WHAT HE'S DONE WITH THE PLACE!

Okay now, that was funny...Al Gore would have tried to capitalize on the coming of the Ice Age if liberal cavemen had bought into it...since scientists are stating the obvious - climate fluctuates owing to natural causes.

Al Gore must have thought he invented climate too.

See, now that's funny too.

LOL just keep believing that.
Meanwhile, in the real world, more folks think the GOP is the Party of grumpy old out of touch white men.

Looks like I'm going to have to repeat this now.

More blacks are gradually coming to understand they're being led around by the nose as victims and dependents of the democratic party and can help themselves better than the government if given the opportunities.

It will be a good day for America when the majority come back to the party of their roots.
Not so much for democratics who think dependence means votes.

Don't make me have to post this again.
