Malcom X never moved to Hawaii to organize the Communist Pary USA there where he met Obama's father and Obama's mother. That was Frank Marshal Davis.
Besides, Malcom X warned black people about the dangers of black people to black people. That's a little different than what Obama was indoctrinated with.
How about we seee these college transcripts and attendance sheets.
Or, let's just ask the people in his classes.
At Occidental his classmates describe him as a poor student.
At Columbia not one single person in his class ever met him.
Or, let's just ask the real faculty at the University of Chicago Law School what they think about Obama. They descirbe him as, and I quote, "lazy and unqualified", end quote.

Barack Obama, President Weathervane

'...History is unfolding in rapid fashion in the volatile Mideast, yet the only consistency in American policy is hesitation, followed by vacillation.

From Afghanistan to Iran to Egypt to Libya to Syria and now back to Egypt again, President Obama has resembled a weather vane.

Over and over again, HE WAITS to see which way the wind is blowing, then races to get ahead of the storm.

When it changes direction, he does, too. If he had been top dog in Philadelphia in the summer of 1776, American independence would have died waiting.

The president’s problem is that he can’t decide whose side he’s on. The lack of a perfect social order, as he defines it, leads him into paralysis and dead ends, such as the one in Libya, where aides boasted he was “leading from behind.”

When Syria’s butcher crossed Obama’s “red line” by using chemical weapons, the president’s fumbling response was that of a lawyer looking for a loophole.

His belated decision to send small arms to some Syrian rebels means he aims to delay defeat instead of going for victory.

It’s a pattern he follows around the globe, even when it involves our troops in Afghanistan.

Confused by imperfection and lacking principled clarity about America’s interests, he can’t bring himself to join a side.

Obama is lost because the real world is too messy for his utopian dreams. And his compass is distorted by the need for self-aggrandizement.

The first clear example came in 2009. When brave Iranians took on their thuggish masters, Obama was shamefully silent. His aim was to negotiate a deal with nuke-loving theocrats, and he treated millions of Iranian protesters as so many distractions to his plan. He got no deal and the opposition movement was crushed.

When Egyptians challenged Hosni Mubarak in 2011, Obama made the opposite mistake. Although Mubarak was an ally who had helped keep the peace for 30 years, Obama called for him to leave and sided with demonstrators, despite many warnings that the Muslim Brotherhood would gain the most.

Now, a year later, he’s straddling the fence in Egypt, unsure of whom to back as a possible civil war emerges. It is not a sign of success that both sides accuse us of being with the other.

These issues are not simple. If they were, they would be solved before they got to the president’s desk.

But Obama made a hash of foreign policy because his worldview is so warped and his experience so limited. His starting point, that America needed to apologize for its arrogance, reflects a naivete about history and human nature.

He also picked a lousy time to favor neo-isolationism and a break-the-bank spending spree at home.

The result is that our leadership role abroad is being replaced with Islamists, despots and opportunists, none of whom can or want to provide the infrastructure of stability.

American Exceptionalism has been a blessing and a burden on this great nation. From our founding, we recognized ourselves as different, and that belief gradually conferred a special duty to the world.

We now have a president who, more often than not, rejects the very notion of American Exceptionalism. In effect, he has not joined the side he’s on. Unless he embraces America’s unique role, and does it soon, his mistake will become the world’s tragedy.

How epic GOP bumbling could inadvertently save food stamps

GOP felt $20 billion in cuts to the poor weren’t enough, so it killed the bill. The likely result? Fewer cuts. Oops

There are lawmakers in the Republican Party who really hate the idea of the government helping poor people stay alive via eating. This disdain is severe enough that 62 Republican members of Congress voted down last month’s Farm Bill — with several specifically citing the proposed $20 billion cut to food stamps (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP) as deplorably insufficient.(Deplorably insufficient as an amount to be cut, that is — not deplorably insufficient for feeding the needy.)

The political ramifications of the party failing to pass the Farm Bill have been thoroughly analyzed, but less discussed has been the life-or-death implications of what will happen to the program now. And on that score, there’s a strong chance that Republicans’ unholy combination of malice and dimwittedness might actually yield the reverse of its desired effect: fewer cuts than they sought, not more.

If you drive down South, take the bus or train back &, never comeback the same day. If you take the train or bus, rent a car & comeback. Nowadays you can rent down South & leave the car up North, genius! Secondly, if I'm going down South, I'm not copping just 1 gun so, in reality your saving alot more than just $100. You sure, have no idea of the inner workings of the underground. On that note, I don't really blame you for you're ignorance. Coc is cheaper near the border or Ports because it's fresh off the boat. That's why they call grade A coc fish scale. It comes in through the Florida docks on boats. Guns are cheaper down South because of the laws. It's easier to get guns down South. All you need is an ID. There's pawn shops down South that sell guns. Also they are abundant like you said but, why would I pay $1000 for an AK up here, when I could easily get an AK & a handgun or shotgun for the same price down South?
I was born in north Baton Rouge, you fucking moron. If you want to know what's that was like, just ask Snoop Dog. He's from a part of Baton Rouge just a few miles away where they kill fewer people, closer to LSU campus. Or, ask Master P, although he grew up in New Orleans but was a frequent visitor to where I was born.
I'm sure you know who these references are.

The announcement tonight of the delay of part of the implementation of Obamacare prompted Speaker of the House John Boehner to release this statement, saying the entire bill is a "train wreck" and "unworkable."
"The president's health care law is already raising costs and costing jobs. This announcement means even the Obama administration knows the 'train wreck' will only get worse. I hope the administration recognizes the need to release American families from the mandates of this law as well. This is a clear acknowledgment that the law is unworkable, and it underscores the need to repeal the law and replace it with effective, patient-centered reforms," the statement reads.
Yes, indeed-y, the "train wreck" will only get worse.

Democrats who wrote the darn thing and passed it also know it's going to get worse long before the 2014 elections.

They must be screaming into their pillows.

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.

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.
