<quoted text>See how fast you single out a single aspect &, start attacking. Republican cities such as in republican states, have a higher propensity for racial violence than democratic cities. Sad to say it but, most murders in those cities you named are victims of gang violence, gang on hand violence! That's the life they chose. Nobody chose to be their race. They are what they are &, it's common in republican states that violence be taken under the guise of racial pretenses. That's what should looked at &, scrutinized. Both black & white. Southern N. America is racially divided &, it's almost like the system works with white racist to get off Scottfree. Talk about that!
Is it racial violence? Or, is it cultural? What do you think will happen when a culture that has no respect for another person's rights, property and life comes into contact with a culture that places the highest regard on individual rights, private property and a person's life?
The problem is, when you define the different cultures, it coincidentally approximates a racial difference.

political spin from a FOX talking head.
which is fine when he says what you want to hear.
so why do you hate Reagan's 47%?
if only you could spin your way out of that one.
Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.
Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

Reagan was proud of the EITC considering the legislation one of the greatest achievements of his presidency.

Bush II expanded the EITC.

Enough of the small rocks this morning. Let's make these self-described "liberal" frauds break out the big rocks.
For a fraud like Obama to be admitted to Harvard after being a poor student and dropout at Occidental, and never even attending classes at Columbia, someone who busted their ass and made the sacrifices to attend Harvard had to be denied.
I wonder who was denied attendance at Harvard after busting their asses and making all the sacrifices so a fraud like Obama could get that on his fraudulent resume.
Who was the person refused admittance to Harvard so the fraud Obama could attend?
And of course you can back this up with some actual evidence?
Of course you can't because you're pulling it right out of your rectal orifice as usual.

Secret court scolded NSA over surveillance in 2011, declassified documents reveal
Kimberly Dozier and Stephen Braun, The Associated Press (8/22/2013)

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration has given up more of its surveillance secrets, acknowledging that it was ordered to stop scooping up thousands of Internet communications from Americans with no connection to terrorism — a practice it says was an unintended consequence when it gathered bundles of Internet traffic connected to terror suspects.

One of the documents that intelligence officials released Wednesday came because a court ordered the National Security Agency to do so. But it's also part of the administration's response to the leaks by analyst-turned-fugitive Edward Snowden, who revealed that the NSA's spying programs went further and gathered millions more communications than most Americans realized.

The NSA declassified three secret court opinions showing how it revealed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that one of its surveillance programs may have collected and stored as many as 56,000 emails and other communications by ordinary Americans annually over three years. The court ruled the NSA actions unconstitutional and ordered the agency to fix the problem, which it did by creating new technology to filter out buckets of data most likely to contain U.S. emails, and then limit the access to that data.

The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, released the information Wednesday "in the interest of increased transparency," and as directed by President Barack Obama in June, according to a statement accompanying the online documents

I think Homer will go with a 'Reagan' theme today.

Big government, big spender, huge debt, allowed free reign for corporations to crush the middle class.

Reagan's Toll on the Middle Class

Top 1% average per-capita income -
1980 - 1990

427K --> 661K increase of 55%

Income of bottom 90% same time period decreased

30,900 --> 30,800

Why are the Democrats that voted for Obamacare distancing themselves from Obamacare?

Why?

Because Democrats are brain dead hypocrites.

But on election night Americans will not forget what Democrats did to America under Obamacare.

Now that that that Liberal policy is taking effect people can see the real Liberal agenda.

Syrian toxic massacre shocks world as it's reported that between 500 and 1300 men, women and children were gassed, many while asleep in rebel held neighborhoods near Damascus.

It's the largest chemical since the 1980's when Saddam gassed the Iraqi Kurd town of Halabja with ordinance furnished by the US under the Reagan Administration.

UN chemical inspectors are in Syria but the information is coming slowly.

There’s an Obamacare program that Republicans use more than Democrats

A new poll finds that young Republicans are more likely to have health coverage through their parents’ policy than young Democrats, an option widely expanded under the Affordable Care Act.
