Understandable, especially with the givverment being so lax these days aligning itself with repetitive welfare/social dependency programs, rather than job markets.

What apology tour? What is their to apologize for? Zimmerman was judge not guilty.
"sonic" this something you will never understand. All black folks are not good. All white folks are not bad. Folks are what they are. Color does not determine , good and/or bad is not determined by color.

Put up or shut up. List the states run by Republicans that are trying to take away the right of any one to vote. List examples of these restrictions. If they are doing so why is holder not holding wieners weeneie and going to court? Examples? Requiring a picture Id? Requiring proof of age? Requiring proof of citizenship? Requiring proof of residency? Shit none of those restrictions should apply, let all the illegals vote, they are after all nobama voters.

Anyone living in Bloomfield Hills would throttle you for lumping them in with the Urban Reservation south of them. Shame on you.

It is 20 miles away from the crap of Detroit. What a moron you are. Have you ever visited a metropolitan city...in your life time? It is a suburb, not Detroit proper. You are a liberal that's for sure.

Former Ambassador: Benghazi “Stand Down” Order Came from Obama
July 30, 2013

Was there ever any doubt?


Ann Wagner, a former US ambassador and current congresswoman from Missouri, was interviewed about what the protocol would be for a “stand down” order in the event of a consulate being under attack, and she answered what many have suspected already: that’s an order that would come from Obama himself.

This is one of the reasons that the Obama administration has essentially refused to provide details about where Obama was at or what he was doing during the attack. This is because we know exactly what he was doing — ignoring the cries for help for political reasons.

Being wrong about policy is one thing. But ignoring the screams of those who work for you because you’d rather them die than accept that your foreign policy is creating more terrorists is a level of treason rare, even for the most despotic tyrants.

That's still pretty modern-times though lol.
Some liberals think malpractice insurance for physicians doesn't play a major role in the costs of health care.

Depending on the state, OB/GYNs can pay more than $55,000 per year. General surgeons between $22,000 and $34,000 per year.

Juries are easily swayed to award those who file malpractice lawsuits because it's a big company and not hurting anybody.

But if the insurance company has a million customers and jurors give $300,000,000 awards, then everybody's rate goes up by $300 to pay for it.

The health care system is broken but Obamacare is anything but the solution.

MLK: Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.
http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/...
(why does that never get old.)
so what black person would want to vote for the party of "extremism, racism, and retrogression"?
From your source, excerpt from MLK's Nobel Prize acceptance speech:

"I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when 22 million Negroes of the United States of America are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice...I am mindful that only yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama, our children, crying out for brotherhood, were answered with fire hoses, snarling dogs and even death. I am mindful that only yesterday in Philadelphia, Mississippi, young people seeking to secure the right to vote were brutalized and murdered. And only yesterday more than 40 houses of worship in the State of Mississippi alone were bombed or burned because they offered a sanctuary to those who would not accept segregation. I am mindful that debilitating and grinding poverty afflicts my people and chains them to the lowest rung of the economic ladder."

He wasn't talking about Republicans in Alabama and Mississippi.
