"Community organizers go into poorer sections of cities to get neighborhoods to band together to help themselves."
Why has Obama abandoned the idea of people helping themselves and replaced it with the government supporting people who refuse to work?
"They get organizations like churches to offer child care & they bring in job training & help people find jobs to work their way out of poverty."
I thought that Christians were evil?
"This is what you have been crying about, taking responsibility, & Obama did it & you are too f*cking stupid to know it."
Since when? Have you seen the welfare stats?
Here you go again.

Look at the welfare stats, the food stamps, etc & totally blow off the fact that these are the effects of the worst recession on 80- years. Some might be lazy but most are poor because they lack opportunity.

Another right whiner whose party dumped millions into poverty now has the nerve to call them lazy.

Yet another example of right whiner denial.

No one hates Christians. They are only evil when they try to legislate their religion& bigotry into law.

And I certainly hate it when you pretend Christians blame people for being poor which runs 100% against the teachings of Christ.

Enjoy your time in Hell.

The GOP and Israel
Scott McConnell concludes that Jeb Bush has learned nothing from his brother’s failures:
His appearance at Sheldon’s event is an early and important indication. It’s perhaps not decisive, but it is clear that he has concluded there’s nothing wrong, politically or morally, with paying homage to a loyal-to-Israel warmonger. For all those who might have hoped Jeb had learned something useful from the failed presidency of his brother, it’s a pretty clear indication. Most probably, he has not.
That’s true. The more dispiriting news from the recent “suck-up fest” in Las Vegas is that the same is true of virtually all Republicans with any interest in running for president. The GOP over the last few years has gone from being a reflexively hawkish “pro-Israel” party during the Bush years to being one that eagerly caters to the most fanatical kinds of “pro-Israel” views without even trying to pretend otherwise. It has gone from being almost completely uncritical in its support for hard-line Israeli policies to becoming a party dominated by mindless yes-men on anything related to the country. Even George W. Bush could bring himself to say the phrase “occupied territories” at the start of his presidency, but now that is something that aspiring Republican candidates are apparently not permitted to say if they don’t want to be perceived as lacking in “pro-Israel” zeal. Bush at least feigned interest in a two-state solution, but it seems less and less likely that most of the potential 2016 candidates will even bother paying the idea lip service.
To some extent, this can be explained by the desire to appear more hawkish than the administration, which requires Republican politicians to take increasingly hard-line positions in order to attack Obama for “weakness.” Another factor is the near-unanimity in conservative media in favor of a “pro-Israel” hawkish line on Iran, Palestine, and any other related issues. Uncritical support is simply taken for granted, and becomes a litmus test for maintaining one’s standing on the right. Most of the 2012 candidates were climbing over one another in their eagerness to express just how total and undying their devotion was. Whatever the reasons may be, the Republican Party has become far more uniform and intense in its “pro-Israel” views than it used to be, and it is becoming this way at the same time that the country as a whole is becoming much less so.
LOL, but, but, but Bush

Now back to Kerry who is the Secretary of State

While you were crying about Sterling our Secretary of State was making a total mess of what was suppose to be a peace talk.

Signs the Progressive 'all you need to do is vote' economy is on fire!

"A family, as defined by the BLS, is a group of two or more people who live together and who are related by birth, adoption or marriage. In 2013, there were 80,445,000 families in the United States and in 16,127,000—or 20 percent--no one had a job."

The State Department Is Getting Ruthlessly Mocked For Tweets Of 'Hashtag Diplomacy'

""I don’t know what effect this is supposed to have," former State Department diplomat James Lewis told Mashable last month when asked about the Twitter campaign. "It's a hashtag. What’s it going to do? For this situation, it’s not a useful tool."

Someone needs to tell Bundy, Public roads are public. If the Sheriff doesn't do something, federal officials need to step in and show these idiots they are not boss.

"Rep. Steven Horsford — a freshman Nevada Democrat whose district spans the region outside of Las Vegas where Bundy is battling the BLM — expressed serious concerns Sunday that out-of-state “armed militia groups” were exerting undue influence and scaring residents in Bunkerville, Nev., and the surrounding areas, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
In a Sunday letter to Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, Horsford alleged that armed groups have created checkpoints requiring individuals “to prove they live in the area before being allowed to pass” and have established “a persistent presence” around highways, local schools and churches.
“We must respect individual constitutional liberties, but the residents of and visitors to Clark County should not be expected to live under the persistent watch of an armed militia,” Horsford said in the letter."

Obama policies took us from losing 750,000 jobs a month & an economy shrinking at over a 6% rate to a growing economy & sustained job growth?
But I did notice where you were too chickemnsh*t to admit it all started in late 2007 after nearly 6 years of the Bsh administration & after nearly 12 consecutive years of Republican control of Congress.

If the boy president nobama, is doing such a grate job, why;
Are household incomes declining?
Are fewer American's required to pay Federal Income tax?
Are more American's needing food stamps to survive?
Is the job force at a record low percentage?

The leftists on this thread couldn't be more hypocritical regarding racism.
They rant and rave about racism being ¨alive and well¨ when an 80 year old rich white guy reveals his racism, yet they ignore racist comments by their own leaders including both Joey Gaffes Biden and Dingy Harry Reid.
They also seem to forget how they mock and disparage any minority who dares vote for or associate with republican/conservative candidates.
Yes, racism/bigotry/intolerance is ¨alive and well¨-- and exists on both sides of the political aisle.
Well said! KUDOS!
Human behavior, no matter how primitive it is publicly displayed, cannot, and will not, be legislated out of existence and will remain alive and well until god intervenes. Racism, bigotry, hypocrisy, hate and intolerance are a fact of life and of human nature and the libs use all of this just to throw barricades into the way of meaningful change for the better for all of us, even those that employ those dirty cards into discourse..

Yep...reminding us what a 'smidgen' is...

“We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement.“At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information. Of these groups, 83% were right-leaning. And of the groups the IRS selected for audit, 100% were right-leaning.”

Good thing a conservative "black walnut" didn't win the presidency. You might have been sounded like a racist.
lol! I hate to tell you this, but that's what a 'conservative black walnut' called himself.

If you had followed the last election, you'd have known that. Just like how he call Romney 'vanilla.'

Seems you have a problem with racism son...
