It is far from being made clear the president did not know about the targeting. His top advisors knew about it. A definite red flag. The investigation behind the scenes is still ongoing.
So you think the democrats don't spend huge amounts of money taking it from anyone who will give it to them to run smear campaigns that puts low-down dirty lying to shame - and that isn't a "potential threat to democracy"?
But only conservatives who raise money in the same way democrats raise money are a "potential threat to democracy"?

Sounds to me like he was whining and worried about losing. And lying to boot.
I never said that only big money groups that give to conservatives are a "potential threat to democracy". I believe "Super Pacs" that have no limit on donations are a threat in general. It's not a Republican vs. Democratic thing at all. I am hopeful the Supreme Court will step in and stop this nonsense.

<quoted text> Victim mentality is what liberals have been preaching for years. Liberals made sure of their plight in life. They always need an underclass of people that they can use and abuse to further their power. One example today, small little girls under the age of 5 holding up signs with a coat hanger on it in Texas. Liberals are the biggest abusers of children and people in the history of history.
Political correctiveness has pushed America into a dark corner. Blacks on the democrat plantation want to be judged by the color of their skin. This goes against the grain of everything Martin Luther King tried to teach them.
It's like Bernie Goldberg said...the racial issue is a wound that won't close because people like Al Sharpton keep poking it.

Most Americans have long since moved on and left the past in the past where it belongs. Blacks have taken their rightful place in society in the professional and political arenas for decades. Race is kept alive for political gain by those who have the most to gain by keeping it alive.

It's starting to get old. Like Al Sharpton.

Not the only way, but true in most cases, particularly those with unimpressive academic records like Obama.

Obama was certainly admitted to Harvard in preference to more qualified white students.

I'm proud for what we were and hopeful for what we may become but I am presently ashamed of what the Magic Negro has made us.
What struck me the most in the video was the stark contrast in each president's voice from FDR to GWB and their convictions about this country - who we are and what we stand for - compared to the present day president.

FDR could have speaking to America today in his First Inaugural Address:

"This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."

In our times, it means we cannot shrink in the face of despotism by those who now hold the power over us and we cannot surrender our freedoms into the hands of the few.

May sound a bit overdramatic but we're living in pretty overdramatic times.

Here is the definition of future conditional as you still seem confused by what it is and how it is used.
e future conditional describes something that might happen in the future with a condition. It often uses "if."
Examples:
If I go to the park tomorrow, I will bring my dog.
"If I go to the park tomorrow" is in the present tense.
"I will bring my dog" is in the future tense and uses a modal verb, will. You can use other modal verbs: can, might, should, must, etc.
Notice the use of a comma (,) at the end of the first clause. The use of "if" creates a dependent clause. The order of the sentence may also be reversed:
I will bring my dog if I go to the park tomorrow.

'If' Rmoney had been elected, you nitwits would be jumping for joy.

But it didn't happen. He and the racists who supported him lost.

'If' most of your fellow citizens hadn't voted for Obama, Rmoney would have won.

Another stupid piece of projection for you racists.

A future conditional was a stupid way to comment on Novbraina's dumb opinion "If people stop going to movie theaters, Hollywood would go bust".

A stupid statement on it's face, yet you attempt to give it credibility with your airhead reasoning.

So why does an old broad like you suck up to the racist haters on this thread??

Likely because you don't have a life of your own. You're on this thread constantly, posting your mindless stupidity.

Even the tragedy in your family only kept you away for a few hours.

Of course I know it's a derogatory word. Just wonder why blacks don't.
Paula Deen claims she used that word 30 years ago and only one time after being robbed at gunpoint by an employee.
So she should lose everything?
Have Americans become so thin-skinned and overly sensitive?


IMO, Paula Deen is a liar. All one has to do is read the actual court case to come to that conclusion. It really isn't about her use of the N-word. It is so much more. The fact that she condoned the disgusting behavior of her brother and dismisses it because he is "a good man", makes her "enterprise" guilty. The laws are very clear. Allegedly, her "enterprise" violated the law. If her "enterprise" is found guilty, it doesn't mean she will lose everything. She, her brother and her sons will just have to do with less until things calm down...and they will.

From her deposition:

"My brother and I have had conversations. My brother is not a bad person. Do humans behave inappropriately? At times, yes. I don't know one person that has not. My brother is a good man. Have we told jokes? Have we said things that we should not have said, that -- yes, we all have. We all have done that, every one of us.
.....I can't, myself, determine what offends another person."

Paula Deen is only crying crocodile tears because she sees her empire crumbling and she is terribly embarrassed by her behavior. Guess she should have thought of that before denying black workers the right to use customer bathrooms while not setting down the same rule for white workers.

You're an idiot, Ed.

I live in an Italian neighborhood. The Italians poke fun at each other and call each other 'dumb dagos'. If a non Italian says it, it's fighting words.

And you're too stupid to see that all ethnic groups do the same.

I see Frenchmen call each other 'frogs'. It's an inside joke, but from the outside, it's an insult. Same with Portugese, Polish, etc.

Figures you'd be too stupid to pick up on such social banter.
