<quoted text> Can't tell him nothing. I've said the same thing a few months back when gun control was their new cry for injustice. How can Chicago enforce gun laws when, the surrounding states have loose gun measures. All one has to do is cross the border into the neighboring state, buy their guns & bring them back across the border. This is common sense shit that seems taboo to the uncommon!
Hee, Hee. Now you blame it on other states, eh?

Isn't your President's open border policy with Mexico and illegal Mexicans an issue, too, bro?

Ask the Magic Negro about Fast n Furious. Ask him about the illegal votes.

It’s been a great week for gay activists, but Dr. Cornel West is not happy. As the postmodern professor par excellence explained to radio host Tavis Smiley last Sunday, the advances made by gays and lesbians mean that “we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus”:

"Again this has something to do of course with what history books will say. The irony of the age of Obama in which black folks found themselves pushed to the back,[and] our gay brothers and lesbian sisters more and more pushed to the center."

Perhaps West is right, and identity politics really is a zero-sum game. Then again, the good doctor may simply be suffering from a touch of radical conditionedness.

Think you have it backwards. The IRS just got a big taxpayer bonus with the help of Obama's precious union for screwing over a significant number of taxpayers who also gave them that bonus.
Did you forget Obama wants us all to sacrifice and "put some skin in the game" while he goes on a million dollar taxpayer golfing excursion with Tiger Woods, hosts gala events at the White House and flies all over the world in Air Force One with his huge entourage? While the White House doors remain closed and embassies are denied help before being killed?
Or how about thousands of waivers to avoid Obamacare while the rest of us have to pay the cost and the price of a declining assessable health care?
Yes, you definitely have it backwards.
You paint yourself with the ignorant brush every time you parrot Faux news. The only truthful statement in your post is that Obama is hosting gala events at the White House and flying all over the world as well as taking much deserved vacations....just like all the presidents who came before him. Big Whoop!!!

I can show you if you want.
It's a little more than confusing, right?
That's 'Kenya's problem' and yours. The rest of America and the world knows President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. Now; in the case of Ted Cruz--born in Calgary, Canada , not even an American citizen ...

<quoted text> Uh Ghosyie I hate to break this to you but birth announcements are usually done the day after or two days later. If done on the DOB it would be suspect.
Where have you been for the last five or six years? Obama's birth announcement was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961 announcing that a son was to Mr. & Mrs. Barack H. Obama on August 4th. Perhaps you are just having one of those senior moments.

African-Americans have been 'pushed to the back of the bus' ever since Richard Nixon's "southern strategy' to win the U S Presidency in 1968. Read more about it here--> http://www.thenation.com/article/rick-perlste...

Obammy's 5 Step War on the Middle Class
Step 3 of 5
3) Higher Student Loan Costs: One of the great aspirations of middle class Americans is sending their kids to college. That takes a lot of money that sometimes needs to be borrowed. Many young Americans who hope to work their way into the middle class have taken out college loans as well.
Because of Barack Obama, those college loans cost considerably more.
After Obama seized the student loan industry, he talked a lot about making college more affordable.
However, what he did was charge higher rates for the student loans so he could take the money and funnel it into Obamacare.
The government borrows money at 2.8 percent and loans it out to students at 6.8%.
Incidentally, those mean old Republicans? They want to cut the rate to 5.3%, but Obama is fighting to make students pay more.
So, if you think you're paying too much interest on student loans, make sure to thank Obama for that.
The larger question is the wisdom of going deeply into debt for worthless degrees from fourth-rate schools for jobs that do not exist.

Why not work and attend college at night, instead of piling up massive debt?

You just don't get it. This fight was for "equality".

It was a fight for the same family medical leave, partner/family immigration, spousal social security benefits, spousal veterans benefits, Federal income tax benefits, inheritance tax benefits, hospital visitation/decisions as enjoyed by any other married couple. The only ones complaining will be right-wing nuts like yourself.

What, shinning is making you write this 100 times in hopes you will catch on.

90 more times still needed-hop to it.
