Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

You must have missed this part of the post, or did you not understand the words?
"I don't think income should be taxed at all but I sure as hell don't like getting screwed because I don't contribute to Demopublican re-election campaign funds."
Here, get less stupid or did you not understand the words you typed.

"Do you think its right for you to pay 28% when you're earning $60k a year while they make millions and pay a flat 15%? Capital gains are income and need to be taxed the same rate as earned income." - dumbass tensing

Why not say that earned income should be taxed at the same rate as capital gains?- Cause you're a libturd!

I, myself, don't think he's your "hero". But because you have condemned only one side ever since you've been on here and defended this president at every opportunity, it's pretty clear to most of us you aren't clear exactly where you stand.
Yes, this is part of y'all's problem (not that this isn't the umpteenth time I've had to explain it).

You think that because I call you people and your handlers on the propaganda and just general BS you think I must therefore be defending Obama or the Democrats.

It is not a binary proposition, there's more than two possibilities.

I don't have to love Democrats to despise the lying, morally bankrupt right.

You dopes see everything in from that perspective, even members of your own Party, if they're not foaming-at-the-mouth right wing idiots y'all call them "Democrats".

I'm not a foaming-at-the-mouth right wing idiot so y'all assume I must be a democrat.

Get it?

Wow, I can see how reading that would make you think I said "he was my hero".
I can see it 'cause your such a childish 'tard.
Yes, I said "childish 'tard" but hey, I don't make the rules, just have to play by 'em.
Stay on the subject lubturd. I said you were lying when you said Obama should be executed, when you had already given him a pass for killing Americans.

The post where you called him your hero will come when you provide the post where I said Martin threw the first punch.

The Obama Project and the Politics of Race

Obama has across his presidency done essentially nothing on behalf of black Civil Rights.”
Obama, I remarked, has across his presidency done essentially nothing on behalf of black Civil Rights. Worse, I added, he has been actively hostile to the notion that the government ought to do anything to correct or even acknowledge racial oppression and inequality in the U.S.– consistent with numerous “post-racial” and post-Civil Rights comments he made as a presidential candidate in 2007 and 2008 – and has actually spent more time chiding blacks for their own supposed personal and cultural failures to take advantage of America’s supposedly great opportunities than he has on addressing any of the many ways in which racism still deeply permeates American life and institutions.

"silly"
In as much as "dumos" is a coward and will not answer, I will ask you. What is the difference between innocent and not guilty? With your gift of gab you must have an answer. The fact remains;
- Innocent = Not guilty
- Not guilty = Innocent
Webster Dumb - destitute of the power of speech, stoopid, foolish, inane. So stoopid and dumb are much the same.
You are a enigma, on one had you are not dumb you have the power of speech, on the other hand you can be dumb in as much as you can be stoopid, foolish and inane.

Wax Man, I've been looking for a suitable villain for my new book and I think you're perfect. You and Naomi, the ever faithful, long-suffering wife masturbating herself with a lit candle as tears stream down her face and wax streams down her thighs and into her anus. You, wandering the stalling corn crop with no rain (moisture,) in your deerskin breeches and filthy loincloth... beating your breats for the strength to stop kidnapping and murdering little girls... little 15 year old girls... in Virginia and other places... trying to exorcise the death of your own like a talentless, modern day Mark Twain. This is likely to be horrible don't you think? Can you imagine? And right here in front of God and everybody.... FOR FREE!It's like hell on earth, isn't it?

Obama doesn’t really support black Civil Rights and the broader struggle for black equality? No, not really. The record on this is quite substantial. I’ve delved into it many times before [2] and won’t rehearse it here.

Many Americans find this easily documentable and harsh reality odd and counter-intuitive for two reasons. The first reason is simply that Obama is African-American. There is in the United States’ heavily identity-obsessed political culture a frankly childish but deeply ingrained assumption that a technically black politician and policymakers must inherently identify with and advance the interests of those who share his official race classification.

In reality, Obama’s technically black identity has tended in his case to work in precisely the opposite direction. It has helped make him even less inclined to confront the nation’s deep racial injustices than he already is thanks to his deeply conservative, bourgeois-neoliberal world view, which preposterously sees the United States as a great land of opportunity and freedom for all of those who are willing to shed bad habits and culture to work hard and honestly. Obama has always known that his technical blackness already, in and of itself, triggers the racial fears and resentments of the nation’s majority Caucasian electorate. As a result, he has felt compelled to be far more careful than a white candidate or politician would ever have to be about questioning the deeply false national conventional wisdom that racism is largely over as a serious barrier to black advancement and equality – a pervasive fallacious white belief that was richly reinforced by Obama’s ascendency to the presidency.

“The preposterous claims of the neo-John Bircher right have long helped Obama appear to be far more progressive on all issues (race obviously included) than he really is.”

The second reason that people have a hard time processing Obama’s racial conservatism is that the nation’s powerful neo-McCarthyite FOX News hard right talk radio Teapublican noise machine keeps up a steady multi-channel drumbeat of propaganda claiming that the president is some kind of racial reparations-demanding Black Nationalist radical Marxist enemy of virtuous white America. Along with the silly “left-leaning Obama” dreams and projections of many liberals and progressives, the preposterous claims of the neo-John Bircher right have long helped Obama appear to be far more progressive on all issues (race obviously included) than he really is. This is of course nothing new in American politics. The Liberty League smeared as a communist Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who boasted with some justice that was the savior of the profits system.

For what it’s worth, let’s have a look at Obama’s thoroughly predictable conservative statement to the whitewashed Zimmerman verdict:

“The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”[3]

This is pretty much what candidate Obama said when in April 2008 a jury acquitted New York City detectives of manslaughter and reckless endangerment for killing the unarmed black American Sean Bell with a 50-bullet assault on the morning of his wedding in November of 2006:

lol! As I've said before, those right wing idiots have to TELL YOU where you stand on issues in order to make their case.

That's the only way their system works since reality and facts won't cooperate with them!

My first car a 57 Plymouth Fury 3, black, lakers, 4 on the floor, overhead cam and two 4 barrels. When all 4 barrels were used gas mileage about 5 miles per gallon. Course gas only cost 23.9 cents per gallon.
Sure wish I still had the car.

More 19th century DEMOCRATS The party of Robert Byrd is alive and well.

(Charlotte Observer)— Bivins Hollar likes to post videos from his bedroom. About weight loss. About Pokemon cards. About selling chewing gum at a flea market.
But it’s the video where he casually talks about “shooting” and starving black South Africans – and kidnapping the country’s president – that caught the attention of people who track white supremacists.

Hollar, who is running for the N.C. Senate from Catawba County, is one of two Democratic candidates whom state party officials have taken the unusual step of denouncing.

The other is Carrol Crawford, a former Ku Klux Klan leader once convicted of burning a cross in Charlotte. He’s running for Rowan County commissioner.

WHY I WILL NOT VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET
I am opposed to the Democratic Party, and I will tell you why.
Every State that seceded from the United States was a Democratic State.
Every man that shot Union soldiers was a Democrat.
Every man that loves slavery better than Liberty was a Democrat.
The man that assassinated Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat.
Every man that sympathized with the assassin – every man glad that the noblest President ever elected was assassinated – was a Democrat’
Every man that wept over the corps of [end of] slavery was a Democrat.
Every man that cursed Lincoln because he issued the Proclamation of Emancipation – the grandest paper since the Declaration of Independence – every one of them was a Democrat.
Soldiers! Every scar you have got on your heroic bodies was given you by a Democrat. Every scar, every arm that is lacking, every limb that is gone, every scar is a souvenir of a Democrat.
The handbill then contrasted Republican and Democrats:
The Republicans have done some noble things – things that will be remembered as long as there is history. But there are some things they did not do.
They did not use an army to force slavery into Kansas…
They did not oppose emancipation/
They were not “Ku-Klux”
They did not scourge, and hang, and shoot, and murder men for opinions sake.
They did not organize the Louisiana white league or the South Carolina rifle clubs

They did not drench the South with the blood of inoffensive colored men…

The trial is over so none of this is about the trial. This particular thread is about how the 'tards on your side got their vaginas all twisted because they "thought" the term "White Hispanic" was invented by the liberal media conspiracy to describe Zimmerman.

How can you stand to be in the same tent as those 'tards?
