Barack Obama, our next President

When those children leave jail they will no longer be children. The innocent student will still be dead. It would be great if the young man could go back home to Australia when those murderers get out of jail,but that can't happen. Liberals that protest against the death penalty, should be protesting against murderers instead.

Ahem, your loser pal told the racist legend of King not being shot on the balcony but in a nearby parking lot.
Perhaps you could link the photo of Theatrice Baily cleaning the blood off the balcony next to room 306 where King fell surrounded by his aides.
What's up with all the lying__is it just silly troll games or are all you racist loons mental cases?
You are such a liar really stupid. I said Jesse Jackass wasn't on the balcony. And you said he was. So there. Don't make me pull all those posts up and make you look dumber than you already look.

Modern conservatives are obsessed with demonstrating their admiration for Martin Luther, Jr. now that he has been dead for 45 years and is universally regarded as a civil rights icon. While he was alive they despised him as a rabble-rousing commie and opposed his efforts to integrate schools, workplaces, and other social institutions.

Today they scramble to get invitations to an event commemorating King’s best remembered speech as if they were teenage girls trying to get into a Justin Beiber concert. Never mind that they continue to work furiously against the principles for which King fought, and they endeavor to roll back the clock on everything from voting rights to job opportunities.

On his program today, Bill O’Reilly joined the rush to pretend that King is a revered figure amongst those on the right. In a dialogue with James Carville, O’Reilly made what he must have thought was a profound observation:“Wasn’t it a little strange that they didn’t have one black conservative or one black Republican? Did their invitations get lost in the mail, or what?”

Carville began his response by noting the appearances by former presidents Carter and Clinton, but was interrupted by O’Reilly snidely remarking that “Isn’t George W. Bush a former president.” Carville replied that he didn’t know whether Bush was invited or not, to which O’Reilly matter-of-factly stated “He wasn’t. No Republicans and no conservatives were invited.”

Not surprisingly, given O’Reilly’s track record for accuracy and honesty, none of that was true. Bush was invited but declined because he is still recuperating from heart surgery. And even Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal reported that the claim that all conservatives were deliberately excluded was false. In fact, GOP House Speaker John Boehner was invited. The GOP majority leader of the House, Eric Cantor, was invited. Both declined. Former NAACP president Julian Bond appeared on MSNBC lamenting that organizers invited “a long roster of Republicans who all said no. They did, however, attend their own Republican-sponsored affair.

If this is evidence of the GOP’s re-dedication to expanding their base and reaching out to minority constituents, they are going to be sorely disappointed come election time. Conservatives didn’t like King fifty years ago, they don’t like his message today, and they snubbed efforts to participate in the tribute. No wonder they need O’Reilly to misrepresent the facts and invent a non-existent controversy, falsely blaming unnamed liberals for excluding them. I wonder what excuses these losers made up for not having been invited to their proms.

Homer not aware of anyone occupying the Whitehouse with an anti employment agenda, sounds like nonsense.
There are less people with jobs now than before November 4.2008. There are more people unemployed now than there were before November 4,2008. There are more people drawing welfare now,than before November 4,2008. There is someone occupying The White House now,that is anti business. Business' are were people go to get jobs,not to the welfare office. Can you give back a mother her son or a son his father by spending time in prison? Does spending time behind bars mean the murder never happened.

Anti employment agenda? Look to the boy president nobama. Slowest most anemic recession recovery on record. Unemployment higher than when the president took office. GDP growth anemic, barely keeping up with inflation. Home sales still at lower levels than when nobama took office. New home starts at lower levels than when nobama took office. More American's, a record number, growing daily on food stamps. Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax.

Look, you ignorant old woman, if you can't recognize that calling the POTUS "boy" is racist, you should concentrate on the Grumpy Old Pricks who have devoted the last thirteen or so years to driving the nation into the ditch...a black man was a two-term POTUS--it's in the history books already; Texas can't keep up with burning them all.

As expected, the National Rifle Association freaked out today after the Obama administration announced that they are going “to keep the most dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands and ban almost all re-imports of military surplus firearms to private entities.”

“Requiring background checks for corporations and trusts does not keep firearms out of the hands of criminals,” NRA spokesperson Andrew Arulanandam said in a statement released on Buzzfeed.“Prohibiting the re-importation of firearms into the U.S. that were manufactured 50 or more years ago does not keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.”

He huffed and he puffed,“This administration should get serious about prosecuting violent criminals who misuse guns and stop focusing its efforts on law-abiding gun owners.”

Yeah, wow. Sure sounds like Obama is tyrant of the highest order. Obama is taking aim at law-abiding gun owners — if by “law-abiding gun owners” you mean convicted felons and domestic abusers, which may be the same thing in Republican world.

This famous picture is from the day before MLK was assassinated. Quit trying to change history.
"at the moment King was shot, Jackson was actually in a nearby parking lot talking to a group of musicians. Kenneth Timmerman describes what happened next:
“When the shots rang out, he [Jackson] fled and hid behind the swimming pool area and reappeared 20-30 minutes later when the television cameras arrived on the scene. That’s when Jesse Jackson told other Southern Christian Leadership Conference staffers,‘Don’t you talk to the press, whatever you do.’... Nobody had given him that job. He took that job. Call it ‘entrepreneurial instinct’ if you wish, but on the spot he realized that he had an opportunity to spin the events to create his own persona and create a possibility for him to become a leader in the black movement. He had no prospects at that point.”
The next morning, Jackson flew to Chicago to make a guest appearance on the NBC Today Show. In the few hours that had passed between the King assassination and Jackson’s flight to the Windy City, Jackson had already hired a public-relations agent to accompany him as he was transported from interview to interview in a chauffeur-driven car. Before a national television audience on the Today Show, Jackson donned a shirt that he claimed was smeared with the dying Dr. King’s blood.“He died in my arms,” Jackson lied."

Obama refused to work with half of Congress even though was his campaign promise in 2008 was to get every one to work together. Instead of working on the problems in the United States, Obama wasted his time in office pushing his personal agenda.

<quoted text>You're a freaking liar! Those laws you speak of, are few &, far stretched across the nation. Here in Jersey, there are no laws to prevent unjustified behavior. An employee needs no reason to get rid of an employee as long as their reason doesn't break any federal laws. Basically giving the worker no voice at all. Unions prevent such things. A employer can not fire an employee without justified reasoning or, face lawsuits out the ass, along with boycotting &, other means of applying pressure to seek justice. Why else would employers not want unions involved? The employees pay union fees for the union, not the employer. If all was justified, it really shouldn't bother the employer at all.
Here in Texas we are able to fire just because we own the business. I don't need a reason as it should be. Why should my employees tell me what I can and can not do?
If these employees want a say in my business they need to invest money then We can share.
If my employees don't like the way I do business they can look for work elsewhere but they can't get the union to try to make me change.
We had a levi company here, employeed lots of otherwise un employeeable people and three times they struck them and three times the business closed. The last time for good. They are in Mexico now with 3-4 hundred jobs.
You can thank the Unions for that.
