Are you referring to the same Herman Cain who was a successful businessman and chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Omaha Branch from 1989 to 1991, deputy chairman from 1992 to 1994, and chairman from 1995 to 1996 of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and who became the CEO of the National Restaurant Association from 1996 to 1999?
That Herman Cain?
What company, state or local government department did Obama lead or preside over again?
Before becoming the leader of this nation?
Herman Cain was never a serious candidate....

to the contrary, people are saving as much as their reduced incomes will allow and are not spending at all except on essentials because they are insecure about the economy and their future...primarily because of the drift to Socialism...
the Obama Depression will not end until confidence is restored, regardless of manipulation by the Fed....
Which probably accounts for this weekends huge Talladaga crowd and sold out events across the nation.

The economy is gangbusters you stupid fk__with the exception of the still struggling housing related industries.

Never before have so many individuals and small groups been targeted by any president who gave a nod of approval that went up as far as top officials determining the interrogative tactics to prevent an opposing party from participating in the political process.
No one takes the Fifth under oath unless they have something to hide or someone very important to protect.
Except those who did the same trying to protect Nixon.
Nixon just didn't have an adoring press.
There you go. Pushing Bush policies under the rug once again. It it hadn't been for Bush's claiming executive privilege in the CIA leak, both he and Chaney would have been impeached. LOL. Bush wouldn't even let them get close to a microphone. Let alone take the Fifth.

<quoted text>It's a stupid argument dumbazz because it's apples and oranges.
The conversation was about how rap/hip hop music came to be and whether or not the music is timeless. Flack asked if anyone thought there will be rap golden oldies, Hah, fk no there won't be because rap/hip hop has no shelf life.
I'm not saying that Swift's music is timeless either, only that she's made a ton of money and if she remains popular she'll blow right past JayZ $ within a few years and with a lot less hassle.
I'm more of a Bruno Mars fan actually.
You were comparing a country singer too a hip hop mogul. There's no comparison. Rap is fairly new compared to other genres so, for you to say " it has no shelf life " is asinine. How do you figure that when, radio stations still have old school parties &, memorial dedication days for dead artists of raps past? The subject was about your comment that " rap is about money " & I used Jay as an example proven few have capitalized on rap the way Jay has &, as a testament to how he alone has been doing it. The shelf life comes with classic albums &, a lot of rappers has done that

I've had several people say things such as: I don't go to the doctor so why should I have to pay for insurance.
And, I can just go to the ER if something happens.
And; I know so many young women who have had their babies and Medicaid paid for everything, then she whispered.(And, theyre white)!!
I said to her, wow, and you thought only lack people did that? It's amazing.
I asked her what would she and her husband do if either of them needed heart surgery, or got cancer?
I explained to her that those options are used by people with nothing to lose, no homes, no assets, no credit.
your assumption that people who have never bothered to have a family doctor and have always relied on emergency rooms for routine problems will suddenly change their behavior because they have insurance is completely illogical...

We only buy American and we only buy GM. I HATE Ford. Worst product ever. I'll take a Cadillac over a Lincoln any day. My husband has a GMC Suburban and a Silverado pick-up. Unlike a Ford product, neither has ever been to the agency for anything other than routine maintenance. It is beyond me why anyone would buy a FORD. Yuk!
interesting that a liberal like you drives only gas hogs....

Cadillacs are for pimps and the nouveau riche...sometimes called n***** rich...

unlike GM products, Hondas last forever...

<quoted text>GM was doomed because the company had lousy management and a pizz poor board of directors.

You're obviously talking through your azz when it comes to the auto industry__maybe you should just shy away from that topic.
you are correct about GM management, but consumers don't give a rat's ass about that and rejected GM because the products sucked...and still do....

most car buyers are brand-loyal, and once lost almost impossible to bring back...

Yes, of course. The rich would not be rich if they had not been given the opportunities provided to them by living in the United States and they shouldn't balk at paying it forward.
The "rich" pay the bulk of taxes while the sponges pay nothing.

He said it to get his socialist supporters like you behind him when he raised taxes on everyone that pays FICA. This includes small business owners who are far from "rich".

It's just another jab at the successful while building up resentment from the dependent class.

I've been calling you leftards socialists for years now and almost 100% of you deny it. You are the weak cancer in our society that history has proven over and over again leads to decay, since the times of the Roman Empire. Give the people wheat and entertainment and they are dumb, fat & happy, that's you!
Because you are a zero, you want to take from others who work hard.
I will give you credit for admitting you are a leech though.
At least you admit you are misguided. It's very rare to find an honest socialist. My hat is off to you for that.
You continue to prove your illiterate. The Roman Empire fell because the Senators of the day were selfish and self-absorbed, determined to hoard the huge wealth of the empire. The common people lost all power and were lucky if they had enough to eat.

That is where we are headed IF we allow Republicans to take control. The truly informed among us are doing everything possible to see that doesn't happen. Obama is stopping the flow of money to those who would take us down (CEO's and the well connected) and reforming the bloated financial system that has feathered their purses.

Stand firm Obama!!!

Not sure if you noticed but I mentioned playing golf with Luther Campbell a couple of times, charity events. He's a good golfer too.

Where's his money??? Where are his royalty millions??? C'mon "face down azz up" should have been worth an easy $15 million in royalties. What about Run DMC? Where's their millions? Public Enemy? Hah can you say send rate reality shows?

No shelf life bozo__you want to see shelf life check out Lionel Richie, and then get back to me about the upstart Taylor Swift.

Matter of fact__don't bother getting back.

The economy is on fire, with the exception of the housing related industries.

Gasoline prices are a significant factor in month to month retail prices__gasoline prices are dropping and might drop under $3 pg UR nationally by the end of the year.

But you just keep bullshtn, and just I'll keep ROFLMAO.
