Barack Obama, our next President

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.

... what's wrong with that picture?
Note to Democrats:
A healthy economy has more people producing than not producing.
An idiot can tell you that.
Economy - The wealth and resources of a country or region, esp. in terms of the production and consumption of goods and services.

Auto industry is once again a world leader.
Interest rates low.
Inflation low.
Steady job growth.
Stock market soaring.
Housing market improving.
Social Security solvent.
Wars ending.
More Americans receiving health care.
All this in spite of an obstructionist Republican party
Life is GREAT here in America for sane citizens!!!

State Troopers Forcibly Remove Texas Woman During Epic Testimony Against Abortion Bill

I will thank you, though, first. It was destiny that you would discriminate against us and try to force your way inside the bodies of Texas women. Thank you! For finally working against women so publicly, and not in the shadows like you’re used to. Thank you for every single bad press conference with your bad information. Thank you for every hateful statement degrading women and girls to sex objects, and brood mares, and bald eagles, and leather wallets, like your eloquent pro-life supporters have done today.

Thank you for being you, Texas legislature. You have radicalized hundreds of thousands of us. And no matter what you do for the next 22 days, women and their allies are coming for you. Let’s start down the line. Senator Campbell, you’re an ophthalmologist. So I won’t be making you the expert on reproductive health. We can give you all the children with chlamydia and herpes in their eyes, since we don’t have Sex Ed in this state.

As she was taken away, Slamen yelled,“This is a farce. The Texas legislature is a bunch of liars. It’s a low bar that you hold yourself to that you simply allowed us to speak

Treason - The betrayal of a trust; a violation of the allegiance owed by somebody to his or her own country.
This administration betrayed our trust and violated their allegiance owed to us and this country.
We were promised answers. They owe us answers.
Did this president know the IRS was going after his political enemies?
Why were unanswered questions surrounding Benghazi and a terrorist attack on 9/11 swept under the rug?
Why is Eric Holder still sitting in the Attorney General's chair in the White House?
Again, when does stonewalling cross the line and become treason?
When are we going to hear the word "impeachment"?
Getting away with such a betrayal of trust by disregarding the allegiance owed to one's country and its people is an impeachable offense by any definition.
I can only hope the wheels of this investigation are still in progress and we just can't hear it.
Or am I the only one who still wants answers and accountability?
Carol, you just keep trotting out the same tired inane old talking points that amount to nothing.
The IRS wasn't targeting anyone liar, they were doing their job vetting applications for 501(c)(4) status determining if those groups actually fit the legal definition. Groups that used the terms "Progressive",‘‘Medi cal Marijuana,’’‘'Occupied Territory Advocacy,’’‘'Healthcare legislation,’’‘'Newspaper Entities’’ and ‘‘Paying National Debt.’’ were also given additional scrutiny.
What unanswered questions about Benghazi? "Benghazi" is "the scandal that wasn't there." General Petraeus testified that, while they immediately suspected terrorism, they did NOT want that information made public for fear of tipping off the attackers, and the fact is the anti-Islam video behind the riots in Egypt WERE used as cover for the Libya attack, so the idea the attack was connected to the famed YouTube video was indeed the truth.
While I do have issues with Eric Holder not prosecuting bankers for fraud in crashing the economy nothing that alluded to comes close to committing a crime. In the Rosen case a warrant was obtained from a federal judge. In the AP case a subpoena was issued and was honored by the telecoms involved. The Supreme Court in Smith v Maryland ruled that the phone records belong to the phone company and that there is no expectation of privacy involved.
No Carol, there's no going to be any impeachment. Despite your insanely delusional rantings the have been no impeachable crimes committed or any crimes at all by the President.

***ALL EYES ON THE GULF!***

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!

USGS CONDUCTS NEW MADRID FLIGHTS: http://www.wbir.com/news/article/279776/2/Geo...

GOM EQ SCREENSHOT: http://lasinkhole.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/br...

NEW WELL LEAK: http://www.fox8live.com/story/22797333/natura...

NO FLY ZONE DECLARED: http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_3_2342.h...

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...

No, you're wrong again. Many of the poor were banned from purchasing health insurance because of 'pre-existing conditions' according to prejudicial conditions set by the insurance companies. That is no longer allowed thaks to Obamacare reforms to protect everyone's right to pursue better healthcare for themselves.

Target Gives Managers ‘Multi-Cultural Tips’: Not All Hispanics Eat Tacos Or Wear Sombreros

a. Food: not everyone eats tacos and burritos;

b. Music: not everyone dances to salsa;

c. Dress: not everyone wears a sombrero;

d. Mexicans (lower education level, some may be undocumented);

e. Cubans (Political refugees, legal status, higher education level); and

f. They may say ‘OK, OK’ and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face.

The plaintiffs, Robert Gonzalez, Bulmaro Fabian and Pedro Garcia-Ayala, charge that the managers, who are nearly all white, are often openly racist and abusive. Managers allegedly said things like “Only a ‘wetback’ can work this hard,” and “You got to be Mexican to work like this,” and “What the hell, I’m already sweating like a Mexican.” Gonzalez says he complained to human resources, only to be punished with his supervisor’s more concerted efforts to humiliate and demean him using racial epithets. All three employees claim they were fired because of their race.

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

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?
