No and I don't care. You are the racist, and getting worse by the day. Do you look like your father?
Guess you just can't help yourself with the racist insults. But, then again, you are a true blue liberal.

Yes, I do look like my father. And my mother too. Don't you?

Have fun calling other people racists for a while, Lily.

I'll be back soon enough.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R) wasn't born in the United States, but that hasn't stopped the junior Texas senator from courting a possible presidential bid. A CNN report investigates his eligibility to hold the office. "My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She's a U.S. citizen, so I'm a U.S. citizen," Cruz told ABC News in July. "I'm not going to engage in a legal debate. The facts are clear." Asked Sunday if Cruz was eligible, prominent birther Donald Trump said, "Perhaps not."

Typical Liberal Hillary selling White House history for money for their pockets.

Clintons doing "good deeds" to fatten their pockets!

The only place I never see normal black folks represented is in the increasingly popular films (and reality shows and music) being masqueraded as indicative of the Black Experience. A troubling stream of craven and depraved sociopaths and psychotics haunt the environs of black entertainment. The doom these figures inflict upon their familiars is taken for granted as a natural condition of our people.

These images and messages do not represent the predominant experiences and nature of my people — and I, for one, want it as widely known as possible that I reject them wholesale.

I take no part with, nor give any corner to, those who keep us in as a function of these images. I reject the reduction of the traumatized but decent people I know as marginalized slaves and menials. Equally bankrupt are the media offerings that show us as sanitized and shallow beyond recognition — devoid of serious concerns outside of those that are worthy of soap-opera treatment…

With greater frequency black filmmakers are saying terrible things about the inhabitants of Black America. While viewing a black film of the recent past (choose your own), I saw black women weeping their eyes out, scene after scene, abused and victimized by black men in a relentless parade of misery. What joy, I wondered, is to be found in this? Even in pathos, of course there is release. But surely there is a difference between pathos and sadomasochism.

Ironically, very little of artistic merit or craft is to be found in the dramatically bereft constructions of the other variety of black movie. Many of these projects feature very talented and attractive casts, slick direction, and high production values. The subject matter is seldom of great ambition or depth. They are designed to please the broadest possible demographic of black ticket buyers. Most of this work is innocent and innocuous enough, and thank goodness for this alternative. That stipulated, it would be less than honest to point to but a small few of these as artistically satisfying.

…And thank God there are still those who use the mediums available to them to create great art. To them belongs the future, should they only take the initiative to reclaim the present. And, please God, in reclaiming the idea of “black.”

After all, everything cool and edgy in our collective experience now is said to be the new version of black.

Frankly, I’d settle for the old kind. It beats the heck out of sitting chained up in a cave.

Any news from the investigation of the unconstitutional activities of the NSA? I haven't heard any news about Snowden since Putin bitch-slapped Obama over that.
You'd think Obama would just stop meeting with someone who bitch-slaps him all around the room every time they meet.
Check with the right wing nuts.

They're working on a new conspiracy angle.

All our laws are flexible and subject to change by a vote of Congress. In case you missed it, Congress voted 264-161 to authorize the delay of the employer mandate and they will do the same with any other delays they deem necessary to properly implement the Affordable Care Act. It's not like Obama is making these changes without Congressional approval. Duh!!!
When did that vote occur, and was it solely to delay the employer mandate or also the individual mandate?

Once again you lie, there is no approval by Congress.

A leaked memo from Forever 21 shows the fast-fashion apparel retailer plans to cut the hours of some full-time employees and reclassify them as part-time, starting Sunday.

"Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conduction with reviewing its overall spending budget," Carla Macias, associate director of human resources at the company, wrote in the memo to affected employees. "As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions."

Although it's unclear exactly how many of the 30,000 or so Forever 21 employees will move go part-time, the company said in a statement on Facebook that the cuts affect "less than 1% of of all U.S. store employees." The affected positions include stock associates, sales associates, store maintenance associates, accessory specialists and cashiers, the memo states.

Employees who received the memo will have their hours reduced to a maximum of 29.5 a week -- just under the 30-hour full-time designation assigned by the Affordable Care Act, which requires companies who employ 50 or more workers to provide health insurance coverage for their full-time employees or face a penalty.

Newly part-time workers who were enrolled in medical, dental, vision and voluntary plans will also see their coverage cut off on Aug. 31, and they won't be able to receive paid time off.

Oh, you mean two fathers? Personally I think Barbara Bush is a man, maybe used to be Bob or something, so that would mean George Bush had two dads.
