The renaissance and destruction of Detroit and never elected a Republican Mayor in 60 years...

Give away 40 Acres and a Mule and it will no longer be a farm...

They can't blame their problems in Detroit on Republican, there are none...

My kids were never beaten and they've all turned out really well.
Sure they did. According to your moronic values...

Lying is OK.

Expecting others to carry your load is OK.

Baawwaahhhhh!!!!

Gee, "my kids turned out really well"!

I don't know what it's like where you live. But there is a disproportionate number of blacks where I live who look at most whites with distain and young people, especially, with an attitude of "kiss my black ass whitey".
So, yes, I am saying an uppity attitude and making people feel uncomfortable for nothing they have done to them personally does affect how their race is perceived as a whole by others.
No one likes feeling like they have to walk on eggshells around people who make them feel that way.
Not all black people do this - but definitely a disproportionate number of them do.
And it seems to get worse under Democratic leadership. It's like spoiled children supervised by permissive parents.
Too many whites have also forgotten how to be civil and kind in this world of anger and divisiveness as well.
Probably because it's being thrust on us from on high.
I've lived all over the place and don't see it the same way you do but then I'm not a racist.

Speaking of getting out and seeing what the real world looks like I gotta quit screwing around on here and get out and do some stuff!

I think we're seeing it happen in Detroit, organic revolution is the revolution that will stick. While the city government is battling its fiscal issues I'm hoping that private investors will start offering services the city has to cut or suspend. Maybe the community will form co-ops to replace lost services.
Gonna keep an eye on it. I'm scheduled for New York next spring but I'm trying to finagle a project just outside of Detroit, last time I was there for four months. I can get the view from the ground. Besides, there's this awesome Romanian grill downtown.
Municipal bankruptcy is a limited tool.

Too many bankruptcies and responsible cities will be unable to obtain financing. But maybe a good thing.

The city government is still in place and fighting the state-appointed receiver at every step. Mayor Bing is the only official cooperating in any way.

<quoted text>IfObama wasn't president, just an average Joe &, you didn't know his parents, what race would you say he is? Apply the same method to Zimmerman. I'm quite sure the results are different! All genes aside, Obama is black because that's who he self identifies with. He could say he's white all he wants, when he looks in the mirror, the truth in his reflection says otherwise! Can't say the same for Zimmerman. See it's ignorance to you because, in your eyes, you're wondering why he chose to self identify as black. Looking at the situation with a bias. Not understanding that, that choice was made for him at birth when his skin began to darken. I'm quite sure you would've been looking at his family strange when he was a child, he being the only black member of his family. White mother, white sister, & an adopted little African boy. Yea that's just what you would've thought, just like most folks that his family encountered. For some strange reason, you all like to lie to yourselves. Well you can't hold Obama responsible for your lies. What do you see when you look at Obama? What do you see when you look at Zimmerman? You can't be ignorant enough to believe that Johnson & Johnson would've paid for his defense had he been identified as Hispanic. Trust me, that claim was made by his attorney to take the racial aspect way from the prosecution. He quickly used his white heritage to get him out of trouble his entire life! It's clear, you believe in magic also huh!
if you look at zimmerman and see a white guy then your racism has made you blind, he looks hispanic.
Yeah

He's the poster child of the moral decay in this country.
Stossel said the other night the similarities between the Roman Empire before it fell and what's going on in our own country are eerily similar. Higher taxes, bigger government, abuse of power, moral decay...
But he did say things are quite as bad as that here yet. He guesstimated another 18 years...kind of jokingly...I think.
I missed this post, had to borrow it from PD's reply. Too good to pass up.
Since the Roman Empire fell over the course of about 400 years by what methodology did Stossel arrive at the very specific "18 years"?
Its frightening that you purport to have been a public school teacher, proof enough that public education isn't worth it.
And this is a conservative 'educator!'

Maybe he should have addressed the problems within the black community. He didn't because this president even knows you can't help those who don't want to be helped. Better to let them be social outcasts, feel sorry for them and blame white society.
Maybe there's a reason people lock their doors when they see a black man approaching or a woman holds her purses tighter in an elevator with a black man.
Too many black men don't respect themselves and act accordingly, and people have to assume they have no respect for others either. It's the ones who don't who give the ones who do a bad name.
But Obama will keep the black bloc vote with his speech anyway. That was the whole intention behind sending NBC the memo to create a racially motivated case that didn't exist.
lol! As I said before, you 'know' so much without knowing!

You mean the Mark Sanford who pushed for an amendment to promote economic development in the underserved region of the Appalachian Regional Commission because of excessive waste and duplication and who cheated on his wife like Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy?
Guess you'd have no problem with the mayor of your city groping and tongue kissing your wife on the street and confessing he had a problem and "needed help" and would fight to keep him in office.
You are one of the reasons I fear for this country.
So you run to the church where pedophilia is rampant for protection?

wow.

I agree. Beating teaches the child that violence is the answer and solution the problem. I was never hit and I never hit my children.

Unfortunately, this president, as usual, didn't know what he was talking about. The Stand Your Ground law wasn't introduced in this case.
Maybe if he would learn the facts before he speaks, he'd be a little more credible.
If he wants to make the issue about changing this law in 20 states, then he should speak direcetly about doing that. But to tie that issue in with this case where it doesn't belong and speaking out of turn, he just creates more confusion and anger.
Don't be so ignorant! stand your ground is a part of the self defense law &, was read by the judge in the jury instructions. In essence, stand your ground is self defense. George Zimmerman's lawyer wasn't stupid. Instead of having a stand your ground hearing, he chose self defense because, it was included, giving him 2 options instead of 1! Look up the guidelines of the law in Florida of you don't believe. So the president was right & you ma'am, are wrong!

You notice it's only republicans who get raked over the coals for alleged inappropriate conduct even if it can't be proven. And many of them step down voluntarily or under pressure from other republicans.
But Clinton, Weiner, Spitzer, Frank and Filner - just to name a few off the top of my head - are defended to the teeth by liberals and remain in office untouched or are reelected.
Can brainwashed people be any more clueless? No, guess they can't. Nevermind.
No I don't son.

But then, they do claim the moral high ground over others. So they hold themselves to a higher standard.

I guess they feel it makes them more god-like than mere mortals.

.. or, it's a political bs thing.
