Memory of Reagan is treasured by most Black voters, turn out for the republicans in 2012 was in Reagan's honor?
So you think blacks don't want real jobs, a real education and don't want to be treated like all Americans but stereotypes and voting blocs instead? Is that why they didn't vote for Reagan?

They would rather have high unemployment because of a lack of a real education in some of the worst schools without school choice and don't want to be treated like all Americans but stereotypes and voting blocs instead? Is that why they voted for Obama?

Free housing, free food, free phones, free money and a dependency on others through entitlements is tempting, especially in light of being kept in poverty and uneducated, stereotyped as victims and used as voting blocs. But is that what blacks choose given a choice?

Apparently, it sadly is.

So why is Reagan to blame? And why are conservatives still blamed for offering them equal status, a choice, a better education and a better alternative to poverty and not Democrats who don't?

In order to have an intelligent conversation logic demands that both sides first must accept common language and traditional fundamental principles. You have consistently demonstrated that in your imaginary world that the only facts you recognize are those that support your current tantrum. Every American over the age of five knows that "boy" applied to an adult Black male is a slur.
Grow up.
Dumbwaiter & Moocher Eed constantly try to defend their use of racial slurs. It so inbred into their lifestyle, they just can't get it.

So I'm guessing it would be because MOST colleges would require that type of identifying information on any students, including foreign exchange ones--Especially ones that stawted them colleges at the tender age of 16, eh Raider?

HEY STUPID! The Bush wiretaps were done without a warrant! You could ask yourself also why some conservatives were all right with this and criticize Obama for working within the framework of the law they helped write? And no liar, Bush was not just tapping foreign phone communications he was also doing it to domestic calls.
Your arguments would go a lot further if you didn't start out every post demeaning everyone who disagree with you.

Bush's NSA was limited to overseas communications between national security enemies and flagged if they were sent to someone here.

This administration thinks his enemies are mostly here. When he says "reward our friends, punish our enemies" and "if they bring a knife, we'll bring a gun", he's not talking about national security enemies. He's talking about us.

Hearing the truth about abuses and fraud in a broken system is not your cup of tea, we know. You've made that quite clear. It's better to pretend like it doesn't exist like a good little liberal.

Amazing that you know that but investigators in three separate investigations didn't find any evidence of that.
This is the difference between a good president and a bad one.
Reagan's handling of this one scandal:
After the weapon sales were revealed, Reagan appeared on national television and stated that the weapons transfers had indeed occurred, but that the United States did not trade arms for hostages. He took full responsibility for any actions that he was unaware of and admitted that "what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated in its implementation into trading arms for hostages".
Obama's handling of three scandals.
"There is no 'there' there."
"An endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals."
"The whole issue of talking points has been a sideshow."
"Benghazi investigation is a political circus."
He then blames Republicans.
See the difference?
Reagan took 'full responsibility' for denying that he was not fully aware of his own weapons for hostages plan with Iran to illegally send weapons to the Contras that Congress strictly forbid. A 'denial of a denial' is a confession on the sly--only a lying weasel like Reagan(no better than Nixon) would think to deceive Congress and the American people. That's the difference!

There's no such thing as a "liberal" media you delusional twit, it's all corporate. The consulting group Global News Intelligence studied the last presidential campaign and came up with the following conclusion;
Those results, after processing 717 articles and 15,357 quotes, are summarized as follows: ""newsmakers appearing in the media as partisan Republicans are quoted at a 44% higher rate than partisan Democrats. Additionally, the ratio of positive to negative coverage was 17.1% more critical of Obama than Romney." Bottom line? "Our data does not support the thesis of a liberal media bias as it relates to Election 2012 coverage." This insider study actually revealed a very real conservative media bias.
Hillary Clinton was just out campaigned by Barack Obama.
But hey, just keep living in your alternate universe Carol.
The liberal media is so far to the left, they'd fall off a map if they were on the edge of one.

Studies have been done that prove the mainstream media gives very little air time to crucial stories - especially about wrongdoing in this administration - compared to other neutral sources.

Studies have been done to prove the mainstream media spends a disproportionate amount of air time reporting negative stories about conservative candidates than liberal ones.

UCLA is one of them - not exactly right leaning.

The White race in America have been taking advantage of free land, free housing, free public education, free money, free phones , free food for over 150 years before African-Americans who were here in America just as long as Whites ,but without being given their U S Constitutional birthright -- they were shared participants with Whites in fighting the British for independence, in the Civil War, settling the West, developing the country into a great political and economic superpower in the 20th century--so isn't it time African-Americans walk side-by-side with Whites as equal citizens?

Good Morning Homer,

I like this new approach:

WASHINGTON -- The Justice Department will avoid charging certain low-level and nonviolent drug offenders with crimes that carry mandatory minimums, Attorney General Eric Holder will announce Monday. The policy shift will allow certain defendants -- those without ties to large-scale organizations, gangs or cartels -- to avoid what Holder called "draconian mandatory minimum sentences."
