Hey, at this point beggars can't be choosers. When you have the president and the Senate doing everything they can to enlarge the dependent class, we, the earning class, have to take jobs wherever they come from. Self-reliance has morphed into white-reliance.
So, you're saying that we should just accept our Third World status that the Bush Administration and Republicans put us in. That's too self-defeatist for me. I'll stand with the President Barack Obama and his more American belief in our own innate abilities to adapt and change and improve when we work together.

<quoted text>I'm not proud. They have a lot of catching up to do with the everyday violence in black communities, which we Democrats are so proud of. We deal with it of course, by calling anyone a racist if they talk about it.
Welcome to the new normal: Large-scale black mob violence is busting out in Philadelphia, Chicago, Utica, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Wilmington (Delaware), Greenville (South Carolina), Grand Rapids, Peoria, Springfield (Ohio), Newark, Boston and Brooklyn.
Police say they are baffled. Others say it is a regular meteorological event:“Large crowds and fights are not uncommon in the city in the warm weather,” said the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.
The latest example of the new normal took place Tuesday in Philadelphia: 200 black people on the streets of the downtown financial district: fighting, vandalizing, rampaging, refusing to disperse, tossing bottles at police. It began at 4 p.m. and took police 90 minutes to restore order.
At the epicenter of the violence, an employee of Wendy’s said no one was surprised.
“It usually happens when the weather breaks,” Lakia Garrick told the local Fox affiliate.“They come in here and go crazy. It was really expected.”
Fourteen black people were arrested and charged with misdemeanors.
The riot came less than a month after the political and media establishment of Philadelphia rose up in outrage at an article in Philadelphia Magazine called “Being White in Philly.”
The article documented how racial violence was an every day fact of life in the City of Brotherly Love; and how most white people were afraid to talk about it because they were afraid of being called a racist.
Or as the Philadelphia Inquirer put it: The article was seen as “dwelling on negative experiences that whites had with blacks that often fit into racial stereotypes.”
Mayor Nutter asked the city’s Human Relations Commission to investigate the author and the magazine.
Perhaps they could call Brandon Jones as a witness. Temple University hired Jones to get to the bottom of these large scale violent events in Philadelphia two years ago. He explained the widespread black mob violence in the area to Diverse Issues in Higher Education:“He understands the high energy level of youths and the need ‘to blow off some steam.’”
Meanwhile, the television stations in Philadelphia are being extra vigilant to ban from their message boards any Philadelphia Magazine-style comments attributing the violence to race. That is why George says his comments were removed from the ABC news site:
“I am honored that the uneducated censor that monitors this board removed my previous post. Since when is it against ‘Posting
Policy’ to request people not jump to conclusions when there is a large fight in the city? Tsk Tsk, honesty certainly is not anything you are acquainted with. You must be a Philly School graduate.
Anyway, I grew up in the city & there were MANY HOT days & nights and we NEVER started or were involved in fights with 200 people or 10 people. I imagine in the words of Michael Vick,‘It is a cultural thing’.”
Glenn noticed the same thing:“They wiped out pretty much the whole first wave of comments. No grace for stating the obvious.”
The frustration in the black community is tangible and real.

Maybe if Democrats and the black leaders in a very lucrative Grievance Industry stopped talking so much about themselves and their "concerns" and actually started talking about the problems and doing something about them, all of us would get on board.

But keeping the race issue alive is another means of a politically-motivated end. Always has been.

Can't have too many educated and successful blacks. They might not need the Democrats' dependency anymore and vote Republican.

Sweden, India and the Philippines have been victims of terrorism by radical Islamist groups.
In Thailand, nine Buddhists were killed by Islamic jihadists and randomly kill Buddhists, school teachers, Buddhist priests, Muslims who work for institutions in southern Thailand, and members of the armed forces.
Tenzing, what did these countries do to interfere with Middle Eastern affairs - seeing that Islamic terrorism has occurred in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia - and not just North America?
Do you suppose radical Islamists might just desire a global Islamic state?
That's what I think anyway - and probably most of these other countries.
What say you?
Thailand has local issues not necessarily connected to the Middle East. Philippine Islamic problems goes back to 1898.

US shifting interest to Asia, as China Japan conflict over Islands could prove difficult as US has treaty to defend Japan.

Let the Middle East "stew in their own juices" or let the EU become involved?
Too much American blood lost there already,

Mitt.

their parents threatened to take their surfboards, that btw, their parents naturally had to pay for. and since we, or you rather, all know that liberals are low life trash that can't afford to buy their kids surfboards.....

so i'm pretty sure that crowd of white privileged punks are none too worried about getting a job.

'It's ok son/daughter, we don't care if you never work a day in your life. Just go be a surf bum and we'll keep writing you off on our taxes for as long as we can.'

which kind of makes me wonder about abortion obsessed parents and the relation to tax write offs.

DemoKKKrat thugs are multi-racial, including surfer welfare bums.
A frightening and violent mob swept through the normally quiet seaside community of Huntington Beach last night following a surfing competition in the area. Businesses were vandalized and looted, portable toilets overturned, and brutal fistfights waged right out in the open. It was an ugly display and a sad day for California. But more than that, it was a reminder that we must begin to seriously consider the values of our thuggish white youth.

Many people don't want to hear this kind of tough love, of course. They'd like to bury their heads in the sand and pretend that all white children are as sweet and harmless as Taylor Swift. But the reality is that the statistics tell a different story. For instance, according to research from the Department of Justice, 84 percent of white murder victims are killed by other white people [PDF]. Similarly, white rape victims tend to be raped by other whites [PDF]. White-on-white violence is a menace to white communities across the country, and yet you never hear white leaders like Pastor Joel Osteen, Bill O'Reilly, or Hillary Clinton take a firm stance against the scourge.

More important than white politicians are the white parents. I'd like to ask the caregivers of the children in these videos what they've been doing. When did so many white parents fall asleep at the wheel? You can complain about poor schools all you'd like, but the fact of the matter is that it's the parents of these children who are letting them leave the house looking like slobs in their baggy board shorts and Hollister t-shirts. It's the parents of these kids who are letting them listen to violent, self-destructive trash like "Anarchy in the UK" or "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue"—performed loudly by noted conservative rocker Johnny Ramone.

As I said, I know a lot of whites don't want to hear this kind of tough talk. But as an American of color who considers himself an ally to the white community, I'm just tired of seeing young, belligerent white people disgrace themselves year after year at surfing events, horse racing infields, and Ivy League campuses. Whites in America have been out from under their European ancestors' boot heels for centuries; California specifically outlawed preferences for nonwhites in state hiring and education nearly two decades ago. So being "oppressed" is no longer an excuse for behavior like this. How long must we wait for the white community to get its act together?

The National Popular Vote is a reform effort to amend the anti-democratic Electoral College which has caused the shrinking of our national elections to involve only a small number of battleground states. This result has caused a loss of popular sovereignty of the people to determine the outcome of our elections. The solution might be to move more towards a parliamentary form of government like our most trusted ally England enjoys today.

You'd be beheaded or stoned in a Muslim country. Can't picture you as an oppressed submissive wife who is at the mercy of her husband if you made him angry.

Better stay here. It's probably why the majority of peaceful Muslims stay here too.

But you're wrong about our being a "liberal society". Independents and conservatives far outnumber self-proclaimed liberals. Independents just got confused in the last election and too many others believed there was some kind of war going on with everyone. Of course, Romney's Mormonism probably had a lot to do with Obama winning s reelection and too many believing the smears and lies about him.

But, yes, you'd do better here if you were a Muslim. Definitely.

In states with large deer populations, hunting is absolutely essential to prevent automobile accidents and property damage.
