Frank Marshal Davis dumped Ann Dunham after he found out she was pregnant, then arranged for her to marry a young communist from Kenya, who was also married, and get her out of the country to have the baby.
Do you realize how stupid you sound? Frank Marshal Davis was 56 years old when Obama's 19 year old mother gave birth to him. Your assertion is asinine.

I find it almost unbelievable that in this day and age you can't bring yourself to accept interracial marriage.
Not sure why I am surprised since you have never tried to hide your racism but I really feel sorry for you. You must be very insecure. You are certainly ridiculous in your thinking. I'll never understand why Republicans prefer to live in the past.
Born in 1938 he got by in life with a decent Northern high school education. Many did, millions did and the Florida, Arizona and CA retirement communities are full up with those racist azzholes.

Sonic, I'm betting you can't even define "supply-side economics".
The concept of a flat tax has been around forever. It was an argument for everyone paying a greater share of the tax burden than others since the beginning of taxation.
A flat tax is the only fair tax. EVERYONE pays. No exemptions. No exceptions. No excuses. A crackwhore gets 10 dollars, they cough up a buck fifty or so to the federal government. If you receive money in any way, you give a portion of that money to the federal government.
Let's see who gets elected when EVERYONE has to pay for what they vote for. I can guarantee you those criminals we have now won't be returning to Washington. They will have to take over the government and declare a dictatorship to stay there, which seems to be the plan.

Really? She does?

By what mechanism does she report this income and pay the federal tax on it?

This ought to be good.

You're confusing Barack's mother with your own.
I understand it helps you cope to think others had mothers like yours but really, making this Obama stuff up is a sign you need professional help.
If they can’t back something up with reality, they’ll make something up, just to show you how wrong you are.

Overcrowded and under developed, Deltona is home to crazy mean old people, new young families, wanna be "gangsta" teenagers... and most importantly, deranged lunatics.

Deltona is a huge sprawling area of winding streets that lead to more winding streets that lead to more winding streets. The neighborhoods are as mismatched as the people, with shacks falling down next door to huge, weird looking 2 story homes. You can find the poorest inhabitants of this city zipping around town in their souped up BMW's, gas guzzling SUV's, or Mercedes... because even though they can't scrape together enough money to pay the electric bill they have no problem coughing up $450 for a car payment.

There is nothing to do in Deltona. Young families flock to "Dewey O", the local park, like wildebeest to a watering hole. Old people go door to door, soliciting their religion. Teenagers spend the majority of their time vandalizing things, smoking things, snorting things up their noses, or beating the living hell out of one another.

With a Walgreens on every corner, you'll never have to do without your pharmaceuticals.

The best part about Deltona is that you never know what you'll get killed for. Maybe over an X box? Maybe over the way you looked at that guy at the gas pump? Or maybe just because someone felt like it.

Oh... and Deltona Florida: Home of the 2004 mass murders

I'm not kidding...

It's the culture...

Look, it's his fantasy world, let him live in it.

Besides wouldn't a crackwhore be paid in crack?

With a 15% flat tax Homer would never pay another dime in taxes, I'd be wheeling and dealing for everything, I'd probably change my name to 'Trader Homer'.

There are so many ways around a flat tax there would be no revenue, ergo no defense budget, we'd have to fight the next war with sticks.

I disagree. IMO, relying on computerized systems to vote are much more open to manipulation by hackers. A system that mails out ballots to registered voters is far less open to voter fraud.
OK, provided that the signature of the voter is notarized.

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.

The Republican Party is the anti-slavery party they were the only party that stood up for black people. They were the party that was founded by anti-slavery activists in 1854 after they saw the expansion of slavery as a great evil. The Republican Party first came to power in 1860 with the election of Lincoln and set out to save the country and end slavery. The Republican party was also the party that made it possible for blacks and others of color as well as others who didn't have connections to get the oppurtunity to serve in government jobs when they started civil serve program instead of the system of that the Democrats used for decades that was basically know someone,be related to someone or buy into a government job.

Is the US to enter into war on the word of Bunky Moonie and some hairball Swedish scientist?
Better than entering into a unilateral war on the word of George W. Bush. If he had bided his time, it would have become apparent that there were no wmd's and we would all be better off.

Besides, the Security Council won't be eager to aggravate the situation.
