Barack Obama, our next President

Recessions are a natural part of the business cycle, unavoidable and best left to resolve themselves.

Crime, Race and the Politics of White Deflection

...the mere fact that the term “black-on-black crime” is used (while “white-on-white crime” is never used the same way), suggests that the phrase is more about reinforcing stereotypes of black people as inherently dangerous, than actually addressing the phenomenon of intra-group violence. The term is not benign or merely descriptive, for if it were intended as such, we would use “white-on-white” crime to describe the crime that mostly affects white people, but we don’t. And not because it’s a minor occurrence. According to the most recent comprehensive data from the Justice Department (in that it tallies crime estimates by race, for offenders and victims, and not merely for crimes reported to police, but also those that are not reported):

In 2008:

There were 2,788,600 white victims of violent crime involving a single offender.

In 67.4 percent of these cases, the offender was known to be white.

So, in 2008 there were at least 1.9 million white-on-white single offender violent crimes.

This, compared to roughly 369,000 black-on-black single offender violent crimes.

So, in 2008 there were more than five times as many white-on-white violent crimes involving a single offender as there were black-on-black violent crimes involving a single offender.

Oh, and, importantly: the rates of white-on-black and black-on-white violent offending here were virtually identical, contrary to common perception. 15.4 percent of white victims were victimized by blacks, while 15.9 percent of black victims were victimized by whites.

Additionally in 2008, there were 726,530 white victims of violent crime involving multiple offenders. Although large numbers of these crimes involve offenders with indeterminate racial identities, or a mix of such identities, in 42.4 percent of such incidents the offenders were both (or all) known to be white. Meaning there were at least 308,000 white-on-white multiple offender violent crimes.

This, compared to about 117,500 black-on-black multiple offender violent crimes.

So, in all, there are roughly 2.2 million white-on-white violent crimes annually, compared to fewer than 500,000 black-on-black violent crimes, meaning that there are about four times as many of the former as the latter.

Galt has no understanding of contract growers, or contract harvesting crews. Galt doesn't get that 10,000 completely unknown, undocumented persons are welcome to harvest tomatoes, apples and such but a black guy showing up with an ID has no prayer of being hired and might end up being quizzed by the police.
Realtime has a racist viewpoint of the work performed by Mexicans.

very impressive.
so it's eating me alive why?
Obama 26 states.
Romney 24 states.

Obama 65,899,000.
Romney 60,932,000.

Obama 51.1%.
Romney 47.2%.

Obama won the liberal states with the larger populations by the biggest margins - by approximately 2 million in New York and 3 million in California.

He barely won Florida and other states by a slim margin.

So I wouldn't call it a mandate or anything like that.

Guess if you keep promising everybody everything even if you don't deliver and lie enough about your opponent and run enough smear campaign ads, you're bound to win over a lot of liberals.

I know it and its the same everywhere I have been and it was the Blacks that were unwilling to perform the work that destroyed Detroit too since most of them refuse to work besides the Blacks are the Majority of Detroit and have been for years and that is what they called Black Power and I agree with Rand Paul that the Federal Government shouldnt bailout Detroit either, let them learn to work & provide for themselves first.

Lord Obamacare is cited repeatedly by small business owners as a consideration when hiring new employees. Businesses close to the 50-employee threshold frequently AVOID hiring because of the penalties incurred when crossing the threshold.

Anecdotally I can tell you that most of the small business owners I deal with are actively searching for ways to avoid the cost and headaches of Lord Obamacare. I expect to see a new industry emerging, if the morass of Obamacare isn't repealed: service companies offering advice on how to avoid Obamacare penalties.

We are already seeing an increase in part time employment, which is one of the loopholes that small businesses will try to exploit. Here's the link with the numbers:

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.ht...

Everytime new numbers come out on the unemployment rate, the administration touts how "325,000 new jobs created!". What they don't tell you is most were part time jobs created by liquidating a smaller number of full time jobs.

not sure what point you're trying make, but mine was....FOX ratings are not that big a deal when only 4.9% of those who voted for Mitt are watching it.

In 2012, Obama disingenuously accused Romney of being anti-education and not wanting to invest in the future while ridiculing Romney’s personal wealth. An Obama aide, Stephanie Cutter, made unsubstantiated and off-the-wall claims that Romney could be a felon for allegedly not paying his taxes, and Vice President Joe Biden tried to convince voters that Romney wanted to return to the days of slavery. A pro-Obama Super PAC, Priorities USA, released an ad that accused Romney of causing a women’s death by shutting down a steel plant. Add to that the spurious and invisible “war on women.”

According to an NBC/WSJ poll conducted in late July, Obama had the most “very negative” ads at 32% compared to Romney's 24%.

But liberals will believe anything and Romney didn't have an urgent enough message.
