Funny how Michelle Obama can talk in China about outdated and repealed laws that discriminated against Blacks and not mention all the affirmative action measures, educational opportunities, and trillions spent on entitlements for Blacks to remedy the injustices of those discriminating laws.
That is so unfair, racist and misleading.

Michelle said:

"And my story isnít unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. Heís the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a university, and eventually built the largest coffeehouse company in the world.(By the way, cretin, Howard Schultz is white.)

And then thereís this other guy I know who was raised by a single mother who sometimes struggled to afford food for their family. But like me, this guy got scholarships and loans to attend universities. He became a lawyer and a professor, and then he was a state senator and then a national senator. And then, he became President of the United States. This guy Iím talking about is my husband, Barack Obama.(Applause.)

These stories are the stories of so many Americans, and of America itself. Because in America, we believe that no matter where you live or how much money your parents have, or what race or religion or ethnicity you are, if you work hard and believe in yourself, then you should have a chance to succeed. We also believe that everyone is equal, and that we all have the right to say what we think and worship as we choose, even when others donít like what we say or donít always agree with what we believe."

That story seems far fetched and probably isn't true; just a quick google search showed all the rightwing bloggers who glomed onto it; it's totally amazing how quickly that happens.
These types of sensationalist stories are created to inflame you anti abortionists who never use logic in your thinking. Any mass email story, you quickly pass on enmasse.
Remember when it was discovered that Mitt Romney was heavily invested in Stericycle?
"...far fetched and probably isn't true"? Did you slur, "...far fetched and probably isn't true"? LOL ... Obamacare ... LOL .... Barack Hussein Obama: "Lie of the Year" ... LOL

I'm originally from MA; was shocked that he even got elected; and then implementing healthcare was even a bigger shock.
Too bad he ran away from his own accomplishment; perhaps he could have won if he ran on universal healthcare nationwide.
But, Romney is a hypocrite and a liar and an opportunist. I don't think there is one authentic thing about him.

If anyone wants to watch Obama speaking live in Belgium, here it is:

http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/03/26/watch-li...

He thinks NATO will suddenly become relevant and the United States will be one other country working together under NATO.

Anyone else believe that?

Obama just said his grandfather fought under General Patton. First time I've heard that.

Mark Levin reads an op-ed and youíll NEVER guess who wrote itÖ

This is pretty amazing. Mark Levin read an op-ed tonight on immigration asking people to consider who they thought might have written it. You have to hear itÖI was totally wrong. And then keep listening because he explains his purpose behind reading it ó and it has to do with an immigration fight coming tomorrow.

"U.S. seeks $2.1 billion from Bank of America in fraud case

By Nate Raymond

NEW YORK Thu Jan 30, 2014 1:08pm EST

Credit: Reuters/Chris Keane

(Reuters)- The U.S. government has raised the amount it is seeking in penalties from Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) to $2.1 billion after a jury found the bank was liable for fraud over defective mortgages sold by its Countrywide unit.

The request in a court filing late on Wednesday was based on gross revenue generated by the fraud, the government said. The Justice Department had previously asked for $863.6 million.

The initial request was based on gross losses it said government-sponsored mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) and Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) incurred on loans purchased from Countrywide Financial Corp in 2007 and 2008...."

I thought it was older than a 98. He talked about hoppin in the manual shift Honda Accord and heading to Maryland to save a few bucks on his likka. He also went on and on about his fear of cell phones interfering with his privacy. He's a rare bird that one is.
