Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>the other advice that is not said often enough, is keep your legs closed if you can't support your children without government help. because the result is generational poverty, promoted by liberals in the form of welfare and social promotion:
'As if more evidence were needed about the tragedy of black education, Rachel Jeantel, a witness for the prosecution in the George Zimmerman murder trial, put a face on it for the nation to see. Some of that evidence unfolded when Zimmerman's defense attorney asked 19-year-old Jeantel to read a letter that she allegedly had written to Trayvon Martin's mother. She responded that she doesn't read cursive, and that's in addition to her poor grammar, syntax and communication skills.
Jeantel is a senior at Miami Norland Senior High School. How in the world did she manage to become a 12th-grader without being able to read cursive writing? That's a skill one would expect from a fourth-grader.
Jeantel is by no means an exception at her school. Here are a few achievement scores from her school: Thirty-nine percent of the students score basic for reading, and 38 percent score below basic. In math, 37 percent score basic, and 50 percent score below basic. Below basic is the score when a student is unable to demonstrate even partial mastery of knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work at his grade level. Basic indicates only partial mastery.
Few Americans, particularly black Americans, have any idea of the true magnitude of the black education tragedy. The education establishment might claim that it's not their fault. They're not responsible for the devastation caused by female-headed families, drugs, violence and the culture of dependency. But they are totally responsible for committing gross educational fraud.
It's educators who graduated Jeantel from elementary and middle school and continued to pass her along in high school. It's educators who will, in June 2014, confer upon her a high-school diploma.
It's not just Florida's schools. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, nationally most black 12th-graders test either basic or below basic in reading, writing, math and science. Drs. Abigail and Stephan Thernstrom wrote in their 2004 book, "No Excuses: Closing the Racial Gap in Learning," "Blacks nearing the end of their high school education perform a little worse than white eighth-graders in both reading and U.S. history, and a lot worse in math and geography." Little has changed since the book's publication.'
Excellent case-in-point.

The educational system and black family structure and culture have combined to make increasing numbers of young black people virtually useless in the increasingly high-tech world of the 21st century.
Too many people believe that pouring more money into schools will help. That's whistlin' "Dixie." Whether a student is black or white, poor or rich, there are some minimum requirements that must be met in order to do well in school:
Someone must make the student do his homework,
see to it that he gets a good night's sleep,
fix a breakfast,
make sure he gets to school on time
and make sure he respects and obeys his teachers.
Here are my questions:
Which one of those requirements can be achieved through a higher school budget?
Which can be achieved by politicians?
If those minimal requirements aren't met, whatever else is done is mostly for naught.
I hope Rachel Jeantel's court performance is a wake-up call for black Americans about the devastation wrought by our educational system.

The jobs sare there. The problem is, your "poor" people are "poor" because they don't qualify themselves for these jobs.
But, I've got a solution.
Stop all welfare. Stop paying people to not work.
If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens here doing the work the government is paying people to not do. Take one of those jobs.
Work or starve. That's the solution to the so-called "poor" problem.
Get off your ass and get a job.
This is just dumb. You are beyond clueless.

Why Whites Will Abandon the GOP
As you are certainly aware, the new consensus among most Republicans and conservatives is that they donít need no stinking Latinos (donít get huffy on me; this is OK, because itís a clever movie reference, and in any case itís aimed not at Latinos, but at stupid Republicans) and will soar to victory on the strength of the white vote. People like me have spent a lot of airtime and ink these past couple of weeks arguing over whether this can work. But whatís interesting is this. Thereís an assumption embedded in the argument that no one disputes: namely, that whites will always be as conservative as they are now and will always vote Republican in the same numbers they do now. This assumption is wrong. White peopleóyep, even working-class white peopleóare going to get less conservative in coming years, so the Republicansí hopes of building a white-nationalist party will likely be dashed in the future even by white people themselves.
We already know all about the creative-class white voters, the well-educated and higher-income people who have shifted dramatically to the Democratic column over the past generation. Those voters are increasingly lost to the GOP. True, Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama among college graduates (of all races) 51 percent to 47 percent, but Obama won going away among postgrads. Combine that with a Democratic lock on a huge chunk of a growing minority vote, and thatís why the Democratic Party goes into presidential elections now with a massive presumed Electoral College advantage (in recent elections, Democratic candidates have regularly won states totaling 263 electoral votes, just seven shy of the magic number).
Everyone knows and concedes all this. And everyone counters it by saying that the Republicans will just goose the less-educated white vote. As I noted above, everyone agrees that that vote is theirs for the goosing. But what if it isnít?
Back in March, the Brookings Institution and the Public Religion Research Institute released a big poll on immigration. Those findings are interesting as far as they go, but the questions and results went beyond that. Itís the first poll Iíve seen that breaks the white working class into four distinct age groups (65-plus, 50 to 64, 30 to 49, 18 to 29) and asks respondents attitudes about a broad range of social issues. And guess what? White working-class millennials are fairly liberal!
Click on the above link, scroll down to page 44, and look at the charts. On most questions, white working-class respondents in all three other age groups yielded results that were pretty similar to one anotherís, but the youngest cohort was well to their left.
White working-class young people back gay marriage to the tune of about 74 percent. Another 60 percent say immigrants strengthen the United States (the totals for all three other age groups are below 40 percent). About 56 percent agree that changes immigrants have brought to their communities are a good thing. Nearly 40 percent agree that gays and lesbians are changing America for the better (more than double the percentages in the other three age groups).
They have different views because theyíre different people: only 22 percent of white working-class millennials are evangelical, compared with 32 percent as a whole and 42 percent of seniors. And an amazing 38 percent of the group call themselves religiously unaffiliated.
All in all, not your fatherís white working class.

We al know it is a lie that you believe because you think those spammed emails are a valid source of information. You really are a true Tewa Party moron.
I believe it because the Supreme Court of Illinois ordered Michelle Obama to become inactive, dufus.
Do you need to be shown the original document again? Do you need it explained to you again that Michelle Obama is prohibited from practicing law, not only in Illinois, but cannot receive reciprocity from Illinois in any other state in the United States?

Michelle Obama surrendered her law license to avoid prosecution in an insurance fraud case.
The Supreme Court of Illinois put her in the category of every other insurance scamming lawyer they catch, fixing it so she can't just move to another state and scam insurance companies from there.

Perhaps you can dig out some of those old posts that show you the exact document of the Supreme Court of Illinois that prevents Michelle Obama from practicing law anywhere in the United States.

ObamaCare: Inconvenient truths
The White Houseís decision last week to delay part of its health-care overhaul illustrates 6 truths about the law that its supporters canít easily acknowledge.
1ST, important parts of it are badly designed. The Obama administration has pulled back on the employer mandate ó the part of the law that fines large businesses that donít offer health insurance ó because, among other things, it threatened to depress full-time employment before the next congressional elections.
The mandate isnít an incidental feature of the law. Itís there because without it some of those large employers would drop coverage and leave their employees to get heavily subsidized policies on the insurance exchanges the law creates. More people on the exchanges would mean higher federal spending ó and more disruption to peopleís existing coverage ó than supporters of the law promised when they were trying to pass it.
2ND, the Affordable Care Act is a standing affront to the rule of law. Unlike past expansions of government assistance ó think Social Security or Medicare ó much of the health-care law consists of granting discretionary powe- NYPOST.com http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolu...
