Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

so who really cares what they care about?

and for you to act like the opinion of black folks on the matter are of no consequence speaks loudly to your acknowledgment that FOX is a racist hotbed.

Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Y'all are right all the people want us a black president for the first time

What is really scary is that you have these posts cataloged & then copy & paste them over & over.
What kind of nutjob does this?
"special Purpose Vehicle"? You don't even know what one is.
Obviously, you don't.
I've explained what they are several times here, and exactly what their part was in the economic collapse. You should have been paying attention. You would have learned something. You know, Ben Bernanke mentioning them in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee should have indicated to you they had importance of significance.

Do I have to explain what a Special Purpose Vehicle is again for you? Or, can you tell us what they are?
I'm guessing you don't have a clue. Therefore, because they were the key element in getting fraudulent ratings for the worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages, you haven't got a fucking clue why or how the economy collapsed.

I want you to tell us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is, or just say you don't know anything about what you copy and paste here.

A "Special Purpose Vehicle" is...(why don't you finish that sentence and show us you know what you're talking about.)

A surgeon's expertise should be compensated just like any medical physician who spent years in school and in residency to become a doctor.
But the attitudes in the medical profession, inflated egos and apathy, sometimes peaks even before a medical student becomes a full-fledged doctor.
And unnecessary tests and procedures are done on a routine "knee-jerk reflex" basis because of the fear of being frivolously sued.
Few people respect the medical profession anymore. There's a good reason for that.
A hospital admission just means everyone can get on board the gravy train - and many do. Specialty doctors are called in for "consults" and get paid just for dictating something in your chart whether they actually treated you or not.
This is not how it's supposed to work.
Just eliminating the outrageous costs of medical supplies and unnecessary tests alone would reduce costs. Making insurance competitive nationwide is another.
But very few surgeons and specialist are worth the god-awful amounts of money the insurances pays them and patients getting stuck with the rest of an outrageous bill.
Doctors used to work for a chicken. It's supposed to be "a calling". Not an insurance Ponzi scheme.

Liars abuse and manipulate a broken system. Racism is a grievance industry for personal and political gain.
Liars and racists come in all shapes and sizes.
In 2008, an NBC/WSJ poll showed 70% of whites and 64% of blacks felt race relations were "very good".
Nothing changed except a new administration who encouraged the grievance industry to rear its ugly head.
But you don't get it, do you?

Start With the Man in the Mirror, Don Lemon
The CNN anchor's "tough talk" fails to reflect what's really going on in the black community.
What Lemon did on his show -- wagging his finger at all the pants-sagging, littering, unwed high school dropouts -- was a mutation of truth telling. He was nothing more than a tattletale, pointing excitedly to all the things his brothers and sisters are doing wrong in the hopes of what? A reward? A pat on the back? A seat at Bill O'Reilly's table?
http://www.theroot.com/views/start-man-mirror...
There's big money to be made in the Grievance Industry. The reason Juan Williams wrote his book years ago specifically about this "industry" is because he once worked for Jesse Jackson and finally realized Jackson and others like him were going to corporations, getting money deals from them to keep their mouth shuts and not label them as racists to destroy their businesses.

Juan is not conservative-leaning by anyone's standards. Yet, he is extremely passionate about the rap industry also promoting drug abuse, disrespect for women and glorifying gangs. He called it "criminal" because it's just producing more criminals.

Wonder if Obama's father abandoning both him and his mother has anything to do with his lying disorder and resentment - and the fact his father was black and his mother was white drives his deep desire to create racial division.
Very complex man with complicated issues, this president.
His philosophy on life is easy enough to understand. He's somewhere between a leech and a sponge.

There's apparently a lot of "Uncle Toms" finally speaking out.
Demonizing other blacks for just saying what everyone knows to be true is going to backfire on the Grievance Industry. Wait and see.
a handful of 'black conservatives' does not make for 'a lot'.

a handful of black conservatives who only have a voice whenever the right wing media are on a 'black people are bad' tear who don't even start to make a dent in the black psyche.

and why are they on the tear.....the Zimmerman apology tour.

ISLAMABAD - Suicide bombers and attackers with rocket-propelled grenades assaulted a prison in Pakistan, allowing 250 inmates - including top militants - to escape, police and Taliban sources said early Tuesday.
At least eight policemen were killed, and 21 people - including civilians - were injured in the attack, which began shortly before midnight local time (3 p.m. ET) Monday.
Fighting and explosions could still be heard into the early hours of Tuesday, and security forces had imposed a curfew in order to protect civilians in the city of Dera Ismail Khan, Shaukat Yousafzai, a spokesperson for Khyber Pakhtunkwa province told NBC News.
The number of militants, if any, that escaped was unclear and could not be independently verified.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed it had released 250 prisoners during the attack on the jail complex in the mid-sized frontier town, 200 miles west of Lahore, which borders the volatile South Waziristan tribal area....(NBCWorldnews)

----
In Oct., 2009, the military mounted a major offensive against militants in S Waziristan and captured most of the main militant bases in a month, but the successes were due largely to a militant pullback after some two weeks of fighting, and by mid-2010 the militants appeared to have regrouped in N Waziristan.

Yes, the costs were given. The initial cost, and the 10 year CBO estimated cost. Go back and actually read the post you comment on, idiot.
A tax cut isn't necessarily a revenue cut. But, even if it is, it is not a spending cut, it is a tax cut.
The problem is the government spends too much. Fix that problem. If you can't fix that problem, nothing will help.
Let's not quibble about your inane diversions. Here are the facts:
Obama's government needs to increase the debt 8 percent every year just for its day-to-day existence.
The calculated growth of the economy is 2 percent, to include the growth of government, which accounts for most of the growth in the calculation of the economy. The real economy that pays for everything is roughly three quarters of the government-calculated economy.
The government-calculated economy is 15 trillion dollars. The real economy is about 12 trillion dollars. The debt is currently 17 trillion dollars, or one and a half times the size of the real economy.
Increasing the debt at 8 percent every year with a stagnant economy that is two thirds the size of the current debt is insane. It is certain to collapse the government.
The government has a spending problem.
Fix it.
I've got an idea.
No more debt. Not for any reason.
When any agency or department expends all appropriated funds, shut that agency or department down until there is more money in the treasury to appropriate.
That will fix the deficit problem and avoid the certain collapse of our government.
So, did you admit tax cuts cost money? I think you just did. The stimulus bill was 38% tax relief. Yet you just considered them costs.

The controversy over George Zimmerman's acquittal for murdering Trayvon Martin is Christmas in July for black conservatives. The professional best black friends for white conservatives who defend George Zimmerman--and by extension the White Right--are in high demand.

As such, Allen West has revealed himself to be a black man who would sell himself into chattel slavery and thank his white owners for the privilege. Shelby Steele, a brilliant man, demonstrates once more that he is psychologically damaged.

Even the D-List backbenchers, as seen in this video from Crooks and Liars, and who are the equivalent of a pee wee baseball league team, are getting a chance to show their teeth and gums as they work on their "self-hating black folks who buck-dance for the pleasures of white conservatives that watch Fox News" dance routine.

Many folks likely believe that these (and other) black conservatives are sincere. Why make such an assumption? In order for a person of color to so betray their community, serving as a human hose who ejaculates and sprays the befouled and racist talking points birthed from the Right-wing echo chamber out of their mouths, on a basic level one must convince him or herself that what they are saying is true.

Yes, money is an inducement for betrayal and foolishness. But, in keeping with my argument that politics is just like professional wrestling--where the latter is actually more honest--a person has to still sell the performance if they want to get repeat work.

Too many Democrats think they're "special". They like to talk the talk but expect others to walk the walk. Same with Obamacare waivers. If you're "special", you are exempt from the "train wreck that's comin'". The same train the rest of us are strapped into.

Dang! What an insightful and intelligent post!
The last paragraph especially: "The only reason they are at war with us is we exist. If we didn't exist, they would be at war with whatever other country occupied our place in the world, which is superior to their place, which is the real reason Islam is at war with everything it is in contact with."
Tenzing and most all liberals forget radical Islam is at war with the entire world. What did some of these other countries do besides join the 21st century?
Islam is a medieval version of racial superiority. That's the problem. You can't negotiate anything with anyone that thinks you are a lesser human than they.
Why everyone hasn't figured this out is beyond me.
The Arabs will be at war with everything until they get rid of their racial superiority attitude.
