It was evidenced by Booby Rush, former Black Panther.
and the limousine liberal mindset of the left helped shape high crime areas:

'…One of the oldest and most dogmatic of the crusades of the left has been disarmament, both of individuals and of nations. Again, the focus of the left has been on the externals -- the weapons in this case.

If weapons were the problem, then gun control laws at home and international disarmament agreements abroad might be the answer.

But if evil people who care no more for laws or treaties than they do for other people's lives are the problem, then disarmament means making decent, law-abiding people more vulnerable to evil people.

Since belief in disarmament has been a major feature of the left since the 18th century, in countries around the world, you might think that by now there would be lots of evidence to substantiate their beliefs.

But evidence on whether gun control laws actually reduce crime rates in general, or murder rates in particular, is seldom mentioned by gun control advocates. It is just assumed in passing that of course tighter gun control laws will reduce murders.

But the hard facts do not back up that assumption. That is why it is the critics of gun control who rely heavily on empirical evidence, as in books like "More Guns, Less Crime" by John Lott and "Guns and Violence" by Joyce Lee Malcolm.

National disarmament has an even worse record. Both Britain and America neglected their military forces between the two World Wars, while Germany and Japan armed to the teeth. Many British and American soldiers paid with their lives for their countries' initially inadequate military equipment in World War II.

But what are mere facts compared to the heady vision of the left?

What if the real problem is the cussedness of human beings?

Rousseau denied this in the 18th century and the left has been denying it ever since. Why? Self preservation.

If the things that the left wants to control -- institutions and government policy -- are not the most important factors in the world's problems, then what role is there for the left?

What if it is things like the family, the culture and the traditions that make a more positive difference than the bright new government "solutions" that the left is constantly coming up with?

What if seeking "the root causes of crime" is not nearly as effective as locking up criminals? The hard facts show that the murder rate was going down for decades under the old traditional practices so disdained by the left intelligentsia, before the bright new ideas of the left went into effect in the 1960s -- after which crime and violence skyrocketed.'

and the middle class will reap what is has sown by re-electing Obammy, the Flexible President.

While Barack Obama is enjoying extravagant parties with Hollywood celebrities and taking opulent vacations, America's middle class is being decimated by his policies.

Certainly Obama deserves to be condemned for the Nixonian corruption and Carteresque incompetence of his administration, but what Obama is doing to middle class Americans is just as despicable.

He's slowly, but surely squeezing them into oblivion.

Sadly, many Democrats are fine with this because they've calculated that a poor voter or better yet in their eyes, a voter dependent on welfare and food stamps, is more likely to support them than a voter in the middle class.

Whatever happened to having a government that tries to make it easier for people in the middle class as opposed to putting harmful policies in place?

Obammy's War on the Middle Class

1) Higher Energy Costs: When Barack Obama was running for office, he said, "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Obama seems to have few qualms about lying to the American people when it benefits him, but that is one campaign promise he's working very hard to fulfill. He blocked drilling in ANWR, dramatically slowed offshore drilling and he's blocked the keystone pipeline, which would bring cheap Canadian oil to America. So, when your eyes get big because of how much you have to pay to fill up your car, make sure to say, "Thank you, Obama."

Of course, Obama's also working around Congress to put new regulations on coal and emissions in place that may raise the cost of your energy bills by as much as 60%. So, if your energy bill seems higher this summer, make sure to thank Obama because he's helping to make that happen.

Obammy's 5 Step War on the Middle Class

Step 2 of 5

2) Killing The Job Market: Barack Obama has imposed 70 billion dollars in new regulations on American businesses so far, America has the highest corporate tax rate in the world, and Obamacare has caused businesses to freeze hiring and move workers from full to part-time.

As a result, even though there are 31 million more Americans now than there were in 2000, there are FEWER Americans working.

If you don't have a job today, feel free to thank Barack Obama for helping to make that happen.

You have a bats eyes view looking from the outside in.Smfh! You totally ignored the facts I presented you, only to give me your opinion. No gun measures will work unless it's truly a United States gun law. Cant have some states using statistics to justify their right to retain machine guns &, have no I.D gun flea markets. The ability to sell weapons & ammo online. There's no way anyone can police that. You people are quick to use your right to bear arms as a shield but, the constitution doesn't say felons can't own arms. Yet you're 100% with that because, the laws are so skewed that majority of felons are black. So in your eyes take the guns from the blacks, they're the ones doing the crimes. Totally ignoring the fact that it's you who are so laxidasical with your weapons in your homes, burglars steal your weapons & sell the to the ghettos. Those same burglars are your children & their friend. It is you who sell undocumented guns to the ghettos in bulk. You people are as much the problem as the criminals. So we need gun laws across the nation, not just the ghettos. That helps no one!

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.

Obammy's 5 Step War on the Middle Class

Step 4 of 5

4) Amnesty For Illegal Aliens: Granted, about a third of the Republicans in the Senate backed amnesty, but Barack Obama and the Democrats backed it overwhelmingly.

When so many middle class Americans are struggling to find work and can't make ends meet, it's unconscionable to allow 11 million foreigners who are here illegally to take jobs that would otherwise go to Americans.

Worse yet, after the chain migration provisions of the bill go into effect, the numbers would zoom up to 25-30 million foreigners competing with Americans for jobs -- and that's before the new guest worker programs.

It's bad enough that people who aren't supposed to be here in the first place are taking jobs that should be held by American citizens, but many people don't realize that they drive down wages for Americans who are already employed.

You're only worth as much to a business as it costs to replace you and when there's an army of Obama-approved foreigners ready to take your job, it simply doesn't make sense to pay you as much money.

Sadly, this hurts poor Americans even worse than the middle class, but with all the Americans out of work, it's hard to see how any politicians who mean well could want to take away the jobs they need to feed their families.

You can be sure that IF ILLEGALS WERE PRIMARILY TAKING JOBS AS REPORTERS, COLLEGE PROFESSORS AND LAWYERS, Democrats like Barack Obama would ferociously oppose illegal immigration.

However, since that's not the case, if you're out of a job or making less because of illegal immigration, you can thank Barack Obama for it.

Obammy's 5 step war on the Middle Class:

Step 5 of 5

5) Higher Health Care Costs: At this point, almost everyone who pays attention realizes that Obamacare was sold almost entirely with lies.

One of the biggest lies was that Obamacare would reduce the cost of care. Barack Obama actually claimed it would cut premiums by 15-20%.

Of course, that was always a ludicrous assertion.

As opponents of Obamacare incessantly reminded everyone before it was passed, the government doesn't do ANYTHING cheaper than the free market.

Now, we're finally starting to get some data on what the numbers are going to look like and tragically for the middle class, it looks like the cost increases are going to be EVEN BIGGER than the skeptics thought.

In California, costs will be going up 64-146%.

On the other hand, others are predicting health care insurance costs may even DOUBLE for many Americans in 2014.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee is saying rates for some Americans may go up as much as 400%.

This is not a small matter because health care isn't exactly cheap in the first place.

Worse yet, despite the massive cost increases, the quality of your health care is going to decrease, the IRS will be handling the billing, and the government will actually FINE YOU if you choose not to get health care.

When you're hurting financially because of those big bills you have to pay, make sure to say, "Thank you, Barack Obama," because he's responsible for it.

Well he spoke very clearly yesterday about the NSA program and supports our current POTUS [position with respect to protecting Americans.
///Former president George W. Bush criticized Edward Snowden and expressed confidence that the Obama administration would appropriately handle the controversy about its surveillance tactics in an interview filmed Sunday with CNN in Zambia.
Speaking to CNN’s Robyn Curnow, Mr. Bush said Mr. Snowden, the former CIA employee who leaked classified National Security Agency information, had “damaged the security of the country.” Mr. Bush said he was sure the administration would “deal” with the aftermath of the leaks, and said he approved of the NSA’s tactics.“I think there needs to be a balance, and as the president explained, there is a proper balance,” he said. The full interview is airing later Monday////

@LoisLane59(Carol, Aunt Bettie Lou,etc.) fails to distinguish the differences between Bush W.'s break-up of the European alliance over the expansion of the Iraq invasion and war and Obama's dispute with European allies over NSA surveillance .The spying conflict issue will be discussed and resolved between the U.S. and Europe. Bush W. never consulted Europe on the Iraq War expansion. Bush W.'s own regressive party base, right-wing libertarians, was in agreement with him at over-riding Congressional oversight and judicial process. Obama's own party base of left-wing libertarians are in dispute with him on the necessity of expanding legal surveillance programs when the terrorist threat has been diminished and inadequate Congressional oversight and judicial protections to deal with an expanded spying operation.

The Obamas give the Bushes a lesson in humility and honorable foreign policy on African trip. "DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania -- Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican predecessor President George W. Bush found common ground in Africa on Tuesday, honoring the victims of a terrorist attack in an unprecedented encounter a world away from home.

The U.S. presidents observed a moment of silence together at a monument to victims of the 1998 embassy bombing here in the east African city where Bush coincidentally happened to be as Obama wrapped up a weeklong tour of the continent. While the two leaders didn't say anything publicly, their wives engaged in a warm and chatty joint appearance at a summit on African women.

Initially the two presidents weren't even planning to meet while in town, but first lady Michelle Obama joked as she sat next to her predecessor: "They're learning from us."

Hmmm, an opinion piece but puts Texas issue in perspective

"Moreover, for Wendy Davis to accuse Perry of making political hay over the abortion issue is rich. She’s gone from unknown state legislator to feminist icon in a few days. As for her charge of “bullying,” it was actually the pro-choice people in the gallery that tried to disrupt the legislature last week.…

On the substance, Perry is in tune with his voters and the country at large in opposing late-term abortion. That view is a rare point of agreement in the abortion argument.

As for the specific health regulations (e.g. maintaining surgical center standards) it is hard to argue on one hand that pro-lifers are endangering women’s health while simultaneously objecting to stricter health regulations. At some point, however, regulations that are not medically reasonable and whose sole purpose is to make abortions (early or late term) near-impossible to obtain are going to run into legal problems."
