Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

After the Civil War, the Democratic Party opened up its doors to Blacks who were willing to be political pawns. Stated differently, Blacks had duties but not rights in the Democratic Party. Blacks could elect candidates but they could not select them. Until 1944, Blacks were unable to get around the “white primary”.
Before 1965, unintelligent Blacks in the South were unable to register and enroll in the Democratic Party. After 1965, all ignorant Blacks nationwide were encouraged to join the Democratic Party. Whites finally realized that ignorance breeds fear. Terrorism had been an effective tool. The KKK had practiced free speech and free associations.
White merchants in Harlem openly practiced racial discrimination until the 1940′s. Sufi Abdul Hamid organized and led a boycott against these merchants in 1934. He was joined by John H. Johnson and the Citizens League for Fair Play. White merchants responded by obtaining a court order which ruled that Blacks must finance their own oppression. This court order ended the boycott.
In 1938, Rev. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. initiated a second boycott of Harlem merchants. Before he initiated this boycott, he had retained Belford V. Lawson, a Black attorney, to challenge white opposition to the use of a boycott as a tool to combat white racism. Lawson was successful in the U.S. Supreme Court and his effort connected the “Harlem Boycott” to the “Montgomery Bus Boycott”.
Blacks are financing their own oppression today because “history is repeating itself”. They have no memory of the “Harlem Boycott” of 1938 and faint memory of the “Montgomery Bus Boycott” in 1955. To move forward, an ethnic group must be able to understand its history and to connect the dots. This requires a fundamental knowledge of history.

history repeating it's self....

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.

So why don’t blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid 20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence — and memory — of black voters.

In talking about race, conservatives have all the moral authority of a pimp talking about women’s rights.

Both the University of Virginia and UPS told their employees recently they are no longer offering spousal coverage to those able to obtain insurance elsewhere; meaning thousands of Americans will no longer be able to choose the benefits they prefer.
UVA said Wednesday this is only one of many “major changes” coming to their health plans as a result of ObamaCare. The university says the changes are necessary because the law is projected to add $7.3 million to the cost of the university’s health plan in 2014 alone.
“The modified plan will provide new options and reward those who participate in wellness programs,” UVA’s Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Susan Carkeek said in a press release.“But we must make adjustments or face millions of dollars in rising costs, fees and taxes that would be passed along to employees.”
UPS, one of the largest companies in the US with nearly 400,000 employes has told 15,000 blue collar types that their "employed" wives who receive benefits elsewhere, but not children "could" be removed from the companies healthcare rolls.

"It looks like Delta Airlines is bracing employees for health-insurance disruptions due to ObamaCare, by circulating copies of a letter it wrote to the Obama Administration in June, detailing the hundred million dollars in costs the Affordable Care Act would inflict on the company.

This news comes as a Virginia management company reveals that nearly all of its major clients have switched full-time employees to part-time, because of ObamaCare. The University of Virginia just announced that it will drop coverage for spouses, much as United Parcel Service did yesterday.

Insurance premiums are going up, plans are being canceled, full-time jobs are disappearing… and according to the Congressional Budget Office, it's all for nothing, because the number of uninsured Americans will barely change at all, at least not during the standard CBO ten-year forecast window.

What a hideous waste. And then we must add the opportunity cost of wasting our national energies on trying to change America to suit ObamaCare, instead of implementing real reforms that would actually reduce costs and increase availability. Republicans determined to defund and repeal ObamaCare should get together and endorse a package of simple, solid reforms. Show the American people what they can have, once ObamaCare is gone… then ask President Obama and his party why they'll go to any lengths to keep us from having those desirable reforms."

The Conservative Fantasy History Of Civil Rights

The civil rights movement, once a controversial left-wing fringe, has grown deeply embedded into the fabric of our national story. This is a salutary development, but a problematic one for conservatives, who are the direct political descendants of (and, in the case of some of the older members of the movement, the exact same people as) the strident opponents of the civil rights movement. It has thus become necessary for conservatives to craft an alternative story, one that absolves their own ideology of any guilt. The right has dutifully set itself to its task, circulating its convoluted version of history, honing it to the point where it can be repeated by any defensive College Republican in his dorm room. Kevin Williamson’s cover story in National Review is the latest version of what is rapidly congealing into conservatism’s revisionist dogma.
