Barack Obama, our next President

well I decided that I didn't want to work today I am going to stay home with a nice young lady all day. So I'll need you to send me $30 for lunch and we may need some birth control so you need to give me another $20 for that as well. But then if we fail to be responsible in our actions and she ends up pregnant you'll need to give me enough for all the related medical cost . Oh I almost forgot after that ill need you to give me enough cash to provide for that child till age 21 as well..

Damm now if that's how I actualy thought , I would be a worthless libtarded obama supporter.

Obama was force fed to Blacks thru the media, 24 with jack bauer as the working class white guy loyal to AMERICA no matter what race or who the president is appealed to many working class white men and those who identified with working class white guys many weekend warriors got caught up in the HYPE prior to OBAMA being selected focus groups were responding well so not much rigging wasnt needed for the first election however the second election JACK BAUER stayed home and didnt vote they knew ROMNEY would not get the votes he was a turn off to JACK BAUER so jack stayed HOME

The Obamas’ visit to South Africa, for people of color on both sides of the Atlantic, is heavy on symbolism and photo-ops, but devoid of any substance for those who hunger and thirst for justice. The ANC won the flag at the end of apartheid, but South Africa’s white elite kept the land and the money, after allowing a few well-connected black faces into high places.
Centuries of oppression have made black people particularly susceptible to the tempting siren song which comes with the image of black success. It is harmless to want a black person to win some coveted acclaim like a Pulitzer prize or even an Oscar, but quite another to be rendered stupid by the sight. Our history teaches us that we must be wary lest we be carried away by emotion that is without substance.
Barack Obama is the most obvious example of this phenomenon and its pernicious influence. A black man being elected as president of the United States was long hoped for but seemingly impossible. The realization of what had long been imagined and the often racist attacks against this dream create common cause with Obama and intense personal happiness on his behalf. Yet what seems inspirational is in fact anything but. The feelings of affection for Obama have been a negative force which impede rational thought and political common sense. The people who most epitomized the American search for true democracy have given it up completely because they love seeing a black man wearing a POTUS jacket and get angry when white people don’t like seeing it.
That history of struggle and the group identity it creates have not been limited to the American experience. The decades long fight against the racist apartheid system in South Africa was supported by millions of people in this country too. Jim Crow was America’s own apartheid. It is only logical that the sight of black people being treated cruelly in the name of white supremacy would elicit feelings of affinity in this country and around the world.
Nelson Mandela’s release from 27 years of imprisonment and his subsequent election as president created a surge of pride and joy among black people everywhere. Unfortunately we did not truly understand what we were witnessing. These events came about as a result of forces unacknowledged in America and they also came with a very high price.
So, you are saying that President Barack Obama is just a 'figurehead' in America and the real white Corporate power brokers in America are still making the decisions. That today's America of growing inequality of income wealth and employment opportunity are still being engineered by the same white Corporate elite that ruled during the United States Gilded Age when disparities between rich and poor were at their greatest and lead to mass protests, rioting, panics, crime waves, and increased violence as the social contract broke down completely.

So, if the whole country loves the law, why is Obama promoting delaying the implementation until after the mid-term elections?

Since you're proud to be white, then be proud of the TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) statistics. TANF being the most popular use of welfare &, dominated by single white mothers, to the tune of 90%. Kinda fits the description of your mother, aunts, sister, definitely your nieces, huh?

The growing inequality is a direct result of the growing ignorance of the general population. Today, we have the most expensive education system in the world, and it generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.

Can you explain:
How we can avoid growing inequality while increasing ignorance?

And how the hell do we get the worst education system in the industrialized world when we spend more money on it than any other country?

Earlier we posted about the USGS conducting flights over the New Madrid today (yesterday). It appears according to several EQ watchers that there was a 5.2 EQ yesterday in the Gulf of Mexico. Also, in the past few hours, news of a NEW gas well leak near this EQ site is being reported (FAA is declaring this a no-fly zone). That's a triple whammy for those of us who have been watching the possible St. Lawrence Seaway/New Madrid/LA Sinkhole/Gulf of Mexico connection with great interest. I'll attach some links to check out. If you see anywhere (forums/webpages, etc) that these issues are being discussed, please post a link here as well!

AND for those of you who are wondering why we care, IT'S COMPLICATED! but these two people and their work will help you understand:
~Jack Reed was a retired geologist who studied oil formations in the Gulf of Mexico. Oversimplified, his theory says a crack in the North American tectonic plate runs from Louisiana through New Madrid to the St. Lawrence Seaway. Seismic activity in the western Gulf of Mexico would directly affect the New Madrid area: http://www.realistnews.net/Thread-jack-reeds-...
~Matt Simmons was a BP whistleblower who indicated in many interviews that the pressures in the BP well could never be contained, and that gas could migrate up into other faults setting off chain-reactions. My favorite interview of his (although there are many on you tube) is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =7iGbtFU9VWwXX
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, IF THE NEW MADRID GOES OFF, BYE-BYE NUKE PLANTS: http://www.nrdc.org/nuclear/fallout/
"The size of the spill already has surpassed the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill, for which oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM -0.58% agreed to pay $100 million in criminal penalties alone. Exxon pleaded guilty to violating the Clean Water Act, the Refuse Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Obama said he authorized the commission to hold public hearings and request information from government agencies, BP, Transocean Ltd., Halliburton Co. and others. Transocean RIG -0.13% owned the Deepwater Horizon rig and Halliburton HAL +0.72% installed some of the equipment on it.

The disaster has taken a $100 billion bite out of the market capitalization of the five key companies connected to the spill over the last six weeks. Read about spill's effect on energy shares. "

Moochelle Obama starves school children

New York's Burnt Hills - Ballston Lake school district has become the latest casualty in first lady Michelle Obama’s preferred lunch plan, dropping the menu after too many students complained of hunger.

“[Food service manager Nicky] Boehm and her staff worked hard to implement the new regulations, but there were just too many problems and too many foods that students did not like and would not purchase,” said Assistant Superintendent Chris Abdoo about the National School Lunch Program in a statement.“Students complained of being hungry with these lunches and the district lost money.”

The school system decided to instead create its own lunch menu for next year.

The district lost about $100,000 trying out the federal menu, which offered such meals as “part” of a chicken patty on a minicroissant.

“Students felt they weren’t getting good value for their money,” Ms. Boehm said.“The high schoolers especially complained the portion sizes were too small and many more students brought in lunch from home.”

That's hardly plausible as Republicans have blocked every effort to pass a raise in the minimum wage, and job / education bills that would provide greater opportunity and access of the poor to better paying jobs , and upwardly social mobility. Republicans have also voted to force the closing of women healthcare clinics in Texas and , raising taxes on students and on the working middle class while reducing the tax burden of the wealthiest Americans already far better off than the rest of American citizens. The GOP chose to double-down on its own past failed policies to widen the disparities between the wealthy and poor while shrinking the middle class with stagnant wages and increased private debt that will only lead to another break down in the financial and social order. The Vice President Joe Biden was correct to point out that some of the climate denier, tea party social bigots in the GOP are worse econ-terrorists than al qaida.
