You pay no penalty for falsely accusing people of racism: False accusations of racism can do just as much damage as actual racism. People can be ostracized for it, lose endorsement deals or even lose their jobs over being falsely accused of racism.

Yet, the only reason you’ve heard of people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Touré, and Melissa Harris-Perry is because they’re willing to accuse people of being racists on the flimsiest of pretexts. It’s tempting to compare these race-hustling poverty pimps to the KKK, but the more appropriate analogy is the Spanish Inquisition. The attitude is,“So what if we unjustly accuse a lot of people as long as we get a few heretics in the process?”

Outrage matters more than facts: It doesn’t matter what Bush actually did in New Orleans or that the local government failed the people of the city; it matters how people FEEL about it. It doesn’t matter that Democrats have run Detroit since 1962; it matters that people FEEL Republicans are responsible.

It doesn’t matter that Trayvon Martin wasn’t really a twelve year old kid and that he was slamming George Zimmerman’s head into the pavement; it matters that Zimmerman’s acquittal FEELS symbolic of law-abiding black Americans being profiled because so many other black Americans are criminals. Once an accusation of racism is made, facts are treated as if they’re of secondary importance to FEELINGS.

You are wrong. In any given year more than 50,000 participate in college football. Only 250 some are drafted, a few hook on as free agents, a few go to Canada to play, a few play Arena League which is kinda football. A majority of those young men know they will never play professionally, but also a majority get an education and most go on to lead productive lives.
There is no doubt a few scam the program and are students in name only. An over whelming majority are in fact students.
Peace
Happy New Year

Obama is an imposter by taking on the job of the presidency knowing he was not qualified. He is one person in his private life and another person in public life. We don't know who he really is, and what we do know is ignored or swept under the rug. No other president besides this one has been elevated to sainthood by the media on either side. And if anyone believes Obama would have made it past the primaries because of his background and inexperience if he were white is fooling themselves.

Something isn't right here. Hasn't been since 2008. How Barack Obama won the White House once is troubling. How he won twice is even more troubling. Because he won by a majority.

The question is why? A white presidential candidate with Obama's inexperience and background would have been a footnote in history.

So did the majority just want to elect any black person? Or did they want to elect an inexperienced radical liberal black person on purpose because he looks like a celebrity?

Truth is, because he's ( half ) black, he started playing the race card with the media to his advantage from the beginning.
And the blind COULD NOT SEE that all that glittered was not gold.
And everything that he has touched, he has tainted. The King Midas Nemesis.
Idiots.
Regarding Mrs. Clinton: I don't know why Liberals (conveniently) forget that she started The Birther Movement against Barack. Blinded by the Barack brilliance < sic > I suspect.
And now she's blind, too ...
Have a Wonderful New Year Ms. Lane !

You pretty much nailed it. In all four posts.

Wish you could get on NBC, ABC or MSNBC and say that again. Exactly the same way.

In a few months, I'd be happy if it were 67%. Ecstatic if it were 77%.
But Obama has decreed he will not budge. If that number increases, maybe he should be budged...into early retirement.

You can beat this like the Benghazi crap and still come up empty. There is NO Alternative to national health when you have an aging population increasing all the time, with less babies following them, along with all the 20 somethings with no insurance and no where near the revenue TO PAY FOR IT ALL.

This was the problem no government had the balls to handle for the past 20 years yet they all knew it was coming. Clinton tried and failed but Obama finally made a step in the right direction even with a conservative BS amendments designed to make it fail. Obama will go down in history like Luther King, overcoming bigots and ignorance to bring America into line with the rest of the world in terms of health care. Up until this point, insurance and health care was a scam. There is no way you can twist facts or figures to try and defend the status quo. The USA spends one of the highest percentages of GDP on health yet ranks way down in outcomes. What does that tell you, someone is skimming somewhere and it needs the cleaners put through it. Market forces my azz, there has always been collusion between health providers and insurers. Like the stock market debacle in 08 the sheriff needs to get back into town, Health care goes a long way in bringing all those cowboys back into line.

The Magic Negro did not win the Presidency by his own cheap talents. He won because the Liberal Media wanted him to. Recall about the millions of plastered images of him with halos. Recall the blabbering Chris Mathews types who couldn't shut up for 5 minutes about the Messiah. Recall the innuendo, aspersions and cheap yellow-journalism attacks on McCain, Palin and Romney. It was 24/7 bombing by Liberal MiGs.

Someone earlier posted a link to Liberal War Games: http://www.westernjournalism.com/top-50-examp...

It is a treasure trove of documented Liberal treachery in popular media.

The Magic Negro was placed into the White House by Liberal Mainstream Media.

He came out of nowhere with a kiss from George Soros and the NY Times.

The NY Times is now gearing up to lie Hillary Hog Thighs into the same position in the same way: Lying 24/7

It will take his signature law becoming a huge disaster before that happens or he is forced to resign. It will be up to Americans to vote out Senate Democrats before Obama is forced to stand alone with no one to blame but himself.

But this year will be a significant year no matter what happens.

The hypocrisy in all 25 reasons is enough reason to dislike liberals.

Especially liked #23 on the greatest president. Funny - in an unsetting sort of way.

The MSM is going to have to wipe a lot of egg off their faces before they finally lose credibility as journalists and can no longer work for the liberal power machine.

Let's hope that happens this year.
