And why are white youth so disrespectful to their parents? According to the available evidence whites between 12 and 17 are nearly twice as likely as their black counterparts to have fought with their parents at least 10 times in the past year. Why no lectures from the cultural warriors of the right towards smart-mouthed white teens, whose disrespect for their parents clearly indicates a pathologically delinquent tendency? And please, someone develop this lecture quickly as we have a 12-year old who I fear may be tempted to try out some of that white-culture-backsassing-shit on us any day now!

No, I want to apologize for my bad hearing. I thought Obama said he saved Detroit and killed bin Laden. But oh my God, I got it backwards. LOL.

But gosh, all of us Democrats led by the main stream media, just keep getting it wrong folks.
It seems that Obama meant something entirely different when he claimed that he KILLED bin Laden and SAVED Detroit.

Because, you know, like a lot of problems Obama has tried to tackle, the result has been the exact opposite of what we’ve been told.

In fact, OBAMA KILLED DETROIT AND SAVED AL QAEDA.

And it seems: HE MEANT TO DO THAT, in the words of the immortal of poet of the Big Eighties, Pee Wee Herman.

But what can you expect from a guy who thinks the United States has 57 states, that port of Savannah resides on the Gulf of Mexico and China provides a model economy.

As community organizer, it seems, Obama rarely travelled outside of, say, West 26th Street and East 79th street in Chicago, at least mentally, politically and philosophically.

Remember when we had Bushisms? The Obamaisms are much better! Wink, Wink! My favorites:

I’ll close Gitmo.

We don’t spy on Americans.

The economy is finally gaining traction.

Obamacare will reduce the deficit.

The new Egyptian government is democratic.

Welcome to Recovery Summer.

Green jobs are important to stimulate the economy.

We are not arming Al Qaeda.

Benghazi was a long time ago.

There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe.

There is no sexual relationship.

I won’t bring up the point that the media RARELY, IF EVER, calls Obama out on his faux pas… whoops, there I pointed it out and I didn’t mean to.
Ok, ok, I meant to do that.

Because there is a larger point here: You cannot treat the truth like it’s flexible or pliable or moldable to fit your circumstances without an awful lot of stretching that goes into it.

Just ask Nancy Pelosi’s cosmetic surgeon. You can stretch around the edges as much as you want, but that only goes so far. Or when I take a special photo of myself, the same applies.

Right now the Democrats, as represented by Obama, are mostly stretch, and no substance. But Obama was way cooler than Romney and that was all that mattered.
"OBAMA KILLED DETROIT"

I love that!

Can I borrow that slogan? I will give you credit!!!

Those" blue magnet reserves" as y'all like to call them, are most of America's major cities. More people= more taxes! Now you get it. What I said was gov't funding. States such as mine New Jersey, pays more into the gov't than they receive back in gov't funding. Gov't funding extends far beon taxes. Republican states with far less people, receive more homeland security funds as well, while the democrat states are the ones to pay for it. You've just been schooled &, you didn't even have to pay for it!
"Gov't funding extends far beon taxes"

WRONG again!!!

Government funding IS taxes!!!

You Liberals live on a lala land!!!

Who do you think pays fur those "government funding"?

You really think that money is not taxes but money borrowed from China!

You must be a Libtard to believe that money is free and we will never have to pay it back!!!

Guess who owns your roadway tolls, museums, city parking lots, stadiums, etc!!! CHINA!!! You had just being schooled!!!

PD: Since I can see you do not know about economics, I can then tell you it is China but in reality is foreign people (government and investors) from Saudi Arabia using Chinese debt (from US Treasury) peg to petrodollars!!!

North Carolina, Your Anti-Sharia Law Takes the Cake

Why would Republicans in North Carolina feel the need to prevent a threat they admit isnt real? Even the North Carolina Bar Association called the legislation unnecessary.

Maybe looking at the legislative history of this proposed bill will give you some insight. The Republican-controlled Houses version also included provisions to restrict a womens right to an abortion. So in the very same breath these Republicans were trying to prevent Islamic law from being imposed, they were trying to impose Christian law.

No surprise, then, that they fear Muslims will be trying to impose their own religious-based lawsits exactly what these Republicans are trying to do.

....You have to wonder if the members of the North Carolina Legislature believe Christianity was created in America. Maybe they think Jesus was born in Iowa, then immediately wrapped in an American flag, and driven home in a Ford pick up while being serenaded by a Hank Williams, Jr. song.

The reality is that Jesus was born in the same part of the world as were Moses, Abraham, and Mohammed, and all these religions were imported to our land. The only religion not foreign involves rain dances and praying to the Great Spirit.

Taking about parking lots owned by China:

Here is another evidence Liberals are ALWAYS wrong: also it shows their typical dictatorship approach to everything, that is why we Conservatives are loaded and ready for them!!!

Many UAW locals, as well as the Solidarity House headquarters in Detroit, post signs that say they don't allow nonunion vehicles in their parking lots.

Five years ago, the policy resulted in a firestorm of public criticism when the UAW kicked out Marine Corps reservists with foreign cars or who displayed pro-President George W. Bush bumper stickers from the Solidarity House parking lot. The 1st Battalion, 24th Marines have an office near the UAW headquarters.

Within two days, UAW President Ron Gettelfinger dropped the union's policy for the Marines.

"I made the wrong call on the parking issue, and I have notified the Marine Corps that all reservists are welcome to park at Solidarity House as they have for the past 10 years," Gettelfinger said in a mid-March 2005 statement.

A stupid argument by an ignorant fool because this spending is determined largely by the strategic location of military bases, the location of national parks and forests, and the location of Indian reservations.
All You did was, list a bunch of excuses because, those national parks, forests, & Indian reservations are hardly ever visited by folks living inpredominate democratic areas. 2ndly, the military bases are exactly the reason they don't need that amount of national security. Places without military bases like NY should be the places with extensive national security funding. After all, they're the ones more vulnerable to attack, as evidence shows. So your excuse is, 1; democratic states pay for republican states to don a bunch of shit, rarely ever used by democrats? 2; we spend so much money on republican states national security for some dumb reason.

Hey Sonic, here is another proof you are wrong only because you are a Liberal:

Foreign investors 'buying up all the brownstones in Brooklyn and pushing prices even higher'
Crown Heights, Bed-Stuy and Bushwick are the main targets for investment groups scooping up brownstones
Many of the investment groups are from Europe, Israel and Australia
One man who has been 'actively' trying to purchase a brownstone said he keeps getting beaten out by big investment groups

Strange Bedfellows: American Nazi Party & Nation of Islam In 1961, Elijah Muhammad, founder of the black supremacist Nation of Islam, met with Ku Klux Klan leaders at the Magnolia Hall in Atlanta. Although they had different ideas about the skin color of the master race, they shared the belief that blacks and whites should stay separate. The following year, Muhammad invited American Nazi Party chief George Lincoln Rockwell to address a Nation convention in Chicago, even though Rockwell had often called blacks "the lowest scum of humanity." Flanked by a dozen storm troopers in swastika armbands, Rockwell told an audience of 5,000 Nation devotees that he was "proud to stand here before black men. " Elijah Muhammad is the Adolf Hitler of the black man."

Sporadic contacts between Black Muslims and white supremacists continued after Louis Farrakhan set up his own branch of the Nation of Islam in 1975. Klan leader Tom Metzger was so impressed with Farrakhan's anti-Semitic bombast that he donated $100 to the Nation after a Farrakhan rally in Los Angeles in September 1985. A month later, Metzger and 200 other white supremacists from the United States and Canada gathered on a farm about 50 miles west of Detroit, where they pledged their support for the Nation of Islam. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend," explained Art Jones, a neo-Nazi militant from Chicago. "I salute Louis Farrakhan and anyone else who stands up against the Jews."

The Nation's contacts with non-black extremists has not been limited to domestic neo-Nazis and Klansmen. During his international travels, Farrakhan has been officially welcomed in a number of countries, including several repressive Arab states. The Final Call, Farrakhan's newspaper, describes one such globetrotting expedition in 1986, when he visited Libya for discussions with Col. Muammar Ghaddafi, who had given Farrakhan a $5 million interest-free loan the previous year. After Libya, Farrakhan ventured to Jeddah, where he conferred with top Saudi Arabian officials before paying a courtesy call to Idi Amin, the exiled Ugandan despot. Farrakhan was also warmly received by General Zia-ul-Huq, the military dictator of Pakistan, whose abysmal human rights record coincided with efforts to impose a harsh Islamic fundamentalist regime in his country.

THE BIGOTS ARE THE NEOCON DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS ARE NEO CONS Black and WHITE When George Lincoln Rockwell, Elijah Muhammad, and Malcolm X Shared the Same Stage One of the most important missions the ANP undertook in the summer of 1961 was an attempt to form an alliance with the Black Muslims and their leader, Elijah Muhammad. From its inception the ANP [American Nazi Party] had referred to African Americans as n*****s and had affirmed the premise that they were mentally inferior to whites, but Rockwell became enchanted with the idea of a coalition; Nazis and Black Muslims could be allies, since they both sought the same goalseparation of the races. Rockwell told his followers that Muhammad
has gathered millions of the dirty, immoral, drunken, filthy-mouthed, lazy and repulsive people sneeringly called ni***** and inspired them to the point where they are clean, sober, honest, hard working, dignified, dedicated and admirable human beings in spite of their color.... Muhammad knows that mixing is a Jewish fraud and leads only to aggravation of the problems that it is supposed to solve.... I have talked to the Muslim leaders and am certain that a workable plan for separation of the races could be effected to the satisfaction of all concernedexcept the communist-Jew agitators.29
Black Muslim cooperation with Rockwell and the Ku Klux Klan went beyond ideology and rhetoric. There were practical implications. Like his white racist counterparts, Elijah Muhammad believed that interracial sexual relations were morally depraved and genetically destructive, for interracial sex ruins and destroys a people. Rhetoric aside, he wanted to establish a truce between racists and his Southern mosques. To this end he sent Malcolm X to Atlanta to accompany Jeremiah X, the local Muslim minister of Atlanta, to a secret meeting with members of the Klan. Both sides discussed race relations. Malcolm described the integration movement as a Jewish conspiracy carried out by black stooges. The parties eventually hammered out the main issue: a nonaggression pact. If the Muslims did not aid the civil rights movement in the South, the mosques would be undisturbed.30

You've become an expert at dancing around the topic. Bottom line, republican states are welfare states (predominately white folks), sucking up more than their fair share. Single white females statistics amongst TANF ( temporary assistance for needy families) the most popular form of welfare is at a staggering 90%. You can try your best to dodge reality but, it always comes right back on around &, snacks the shit out of you, giving you exactly what you deserve!
