I know y'all have a problem with perspective. Perspective is fundamental to International Relations. You look at everything from a US-centric perspective and the rest of the world has their own. You're not the only one, Carol's one of the worst. Everything is viewed from a late-20th Century, middle-class, white, american, female perspective.
That's pretty narrow.

Nobody cares if you people sit around wallowing in self-pity instead of getting off your butts.

When racists like Al Sharpton speak, the world knows the opposite is true.

<quoted text>So, this is why Ronald Reagan was a 'leech and a sponge' He never said anything original and took advantage of other peoples misfortune to advance his own political career. You can see the proof in his 1980 Presidential campaign that started off in Philadelphia, Mississippi(the place where three civil rights workers in the Mississippi Summer Project of 1964-two Jews and a Black, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney-had been murdered). Reagan wasn't there to support civil rights ,but side with the states rights to remain racially segregated. Reagan's visit to Bitburg Cemetery ( the place where many Nazis SS members were buried) further revealed his moral callousness.
And that explains why Ronal Reagan is so often quoted.

You are so obviously confused it's difficult to respond sometimes.

"Uncle Tom" is a derogatory term used only by black liberals to describe black conservatives or any black person they deem a traitor to keep the race issue alive and well by blaming whites.

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.
Your so-called "tax relief" was nothing more than subsidies to non-viable industries.

Fair and Balanced and White? Why Fox News Needs Black Conservatives
Fox News Channel, the hugely successful conservative cable TV network whose motto is “Fair and Balanced”, is anything but when it comes to on-air personalities.
Libertarian Greg Gutfeld, host of Fox News Channel’s Red Eye and The Five, believes the network has a race problem. During Wednesday’s opening segment on The Five, Gutfeld noted the incongruous scenario of constantly discussing race without a black person participating in the discussion.
Gutfeld said,“We are here talking about this and there are five white people. I think Fox should be hiring more black conservatives. Because, dammit they need to be here and they need to be everywhere. That’s fair and balanced.”
Gutfeld’s keen observation should not be taken lightly. Fox News’ lack of African-American representation at the highest level of its TV shows, anchors and hosts, has a negative ripple effect throughout the conservative movement.
Cable TV news is less about news and more about presenting opinions and analysis that generate ratings and voter action. Given that statement, it is safe to assume that the opinions of black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News’ audience. And if it is safe to assume black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News audiences, then they definitely don’t resonate with Republican voters.
The paucity of on-air black anchors and hosts at Fox is completely consistent with the lack of black elected officials in the Republican Party. It is no secret that Fox News is largely seen as the most influential and important communication vehicle of the GOP. It is not a coincidence that there are relatively few black on-air show hosts on Fox and only one black Republican in Congress. If Fox News is not promoting black conservatives for elected office — and they are not— then it is highly improbable that they will be elected. Why Fox is not pumping up the profiles of conservatives like Mia Love, Erika Harold, or Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is anybody’s guess. You would think electing the first African-American Republican woman to Congress and providing a platform for the only black Republican in Congress would be high priorities of the conservative network. Unfortunately, Fox doesn’t have any opinion-making conservatives with black faces to make that point.
http://www.policymic.com/articles/56525/fair-...
If Fox News is not featuring black conservatives on-air, then rest assured that conservative America is not going to support them at the ballot box. The Republican National Committee has an outreach program, largely based on using the media to spread the conservative message to African-Americans. Maybe they should ask Fox News to help out.

Ok. How about the history of the Cold War.

Let's start with the Potsdam conference where it was decided the British would monitor the removal of the Japanese army in the southern region of Vietnam, and the Chinese would monitor the removal of the Japanese army in the norther region of Vietnam.

Take it from there....

Last time I looked, Glenn Beck wasn't threatening corporations with money deals to keep their mouth shuts and not label them racists to destroy their businesses.

You should read Juan Willliams' book, "Enough" published in 2006 which was inspired by Bill Cosby's speech at the NAACP and deals with critiquing black leaders in America not addressing, as he puts it, the "culture of failure".

Glenn Beck has organized several rallies to bring people together with the theme of caring about each other, honoring country and remembering what Americans used to do.

Oh, and exposing this administration for who and what it is.

But we already know that now.
