The other 11 are Non-black History months which is fitting.

Actually, black history week or day would be more appropriate.

How about Affirmative Action Day where blacks take their kids to their fake job for the day?

Or Welfare Day where blacks show off their free obamaphones, free rentals and have WIC Barbeques on the street?

<quoted text>Scott currently trails Charlie Crist by a wide margin in a recent Q poll. Interestingly, as a builder/developer friendly Republican Crist helped bury Florida during the Bush inspired mortgage meltdown while Scott has ridden Obama's coat tails to a speedier recovery than most expected.
It could be a wild election year in Florida__with the discontent spilling over into other important races.
.
I haven't heard if Charlie is talking about the Medicaid expansion; that will be how he will win; although Scott did change his mind and was ready to do it but the R legislature blocked it.
Lots of things happen in an election year for sure. What is the wide margin? I thought I read 8%?
He also should restore felons rights to vote and move to end mandatory sentencing for drug crimes. It's enough of this prison state.

Face it, Christie is dead in the water as a presidential candidate, and none of your Teaparty nuts has a chance of defeating Hillary Clinton. The GOP at this point has no moderate or even marginally electable candidates. Whachagonnado, run Romney again? LOL!!!
Rubio, Ryan, Paul, Cruz... COO COO!
Well, you never know....Romney won't run again for sure, Rubio or Ryan? Doubt it. Maybe they'll try Jeb Bush! They need the Hispanic vote and he's bilingual with a Mexican wife; he's pro immigration.

I don't expect him to agree with me and I don't expect anyone else to agree with me. I do demand respect, he's arrogant and demeaning so fck him. You give it a rest.

That is where you are wrong. Yes, the Affordable Care Act has benefited those at the low and high ends of the income scale the most but very, very few in the middle have had their insurance cancelled without automatic re-enrollment, seen their premiums "skyrocket" or lost their doctors and hospitals.....very few.
It is reported that out of the 3,144 counties in the United States, the cheapest plans in only 170 of them exceeds what "experts" consider affordable (ie: 10 percent of annual income). Under the terms of the ACA, people who can prove that the least expensive plan in their area is not affordable, can buy catastrophic plans just like anyone under 30 is allowed to do.
Come 2016, people will have settled into the new insurance plans and be quite content. And those who had pre-existing conditions or who qualify for subsidies will be ecstatic and will crucify the Repugnants for their obstructionist tactics.
anybody can still buy a catastrophic plan if they are willing to risk the tax....and that remains the best decision...

It comes from the taxes paid by those hard working Americans at the bottom end of the income ladder. Why should business owners and the wealthy be allowed to steal money from them to invest and become wealthier?

LOL. Where were you when the November 29th polls showed Christie to be the Republican Presidential front runner with Rand Paul and Paul Ryan in distant second and third positions.
Seems you are on the outside looking in when it concerns your party. Must be frustrating to watch your party go down the tubes.
they were polling saboteurs like you NYC Bocajews.....

besides, Christie 15%, Conservatives 85% is pretty decisive....

DemoKKKrats are going down the tubes because of ObamaKKKare...

small victories are little compensation for the miserable state of Black America....

as Obama focuses like a laser on homosexuals and taking jobs from blacks to give to Mexicans while blacks remain unemployed and in poverty....

It seems that Perkins is suffering from dementia or something; wants attention. I liked the proposal from the Republican in CA regarding $12.00 minimum wage that would end subsidies; a couple can survive on $50,000. Pay people enough so that they can pay their bills and the subsidies are not necessary. He said that Walmart would only have to raise it's prices 1%; once; to accomplish this. Sounds like a win/win to me. His name is Ron Unz; I listened to his interview on NPR the other day; he makes a lot of sense.

bullshit as far as ending subsidies...

ObamaKKKare gives taxpayer dollars to people earning $94,200 per year....guess the minimum wage needs to be $45.29 per hour to end subsidies....

and that clown is a leftwing Libertarian, not a Republican...

<quoted text>There are easily 30 Wallyworlds and several Sams clubs within a half hours drive from my home. Research? WTF is that? I am however an inquisitive sort so when you posted a link to your Brainard JayCee's ice fishing tourney I clicked on and looked it over real well. Then I checked out your local C.o.C. to learn that you all have a new director that some of the local folk are suspicious of. Hah__just like down here. Of course there are probably 30 C.o.C's within a half hours drive from my home.
At the risk of having fun with words $8.00 per hour is a salary correct? I'm left thinking that all the employee's are salaried__can't think of any that would be on straight commission except perhaps the optometrist.
Should add that my part of the state is a 24/7/365 sort of place.
Well, no, it's an hourly wage. Salaried employees are not paid by the hour.
Yeah

You know what RINO's and "moderates" get us? NOTHING! As soon as a conservative with balls enough to advocate closing the border, address Christian persecution, foreign and domestic, calls Muslims terrorists and vows to end the welfare state, we'll have a candidate that'll waltz into the White House.
lol! Any yet, no one is really stupid enough to do that!

The subsidies he is speaking of are foodstamps, EITC, child tax credits; read the essay, you might learn something. He said he is a conservative.
