Racial slurs are so natural to Eed that he doesn't even realize they are slurs.
Eed knows that calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur & now he will pretend he meant something else.
Pathetic, low life ignorant racist POS Eed.
"real dumb"
Referring to the president as a boy is not a racial slur. The president's color is of interest to you, but not to me. I only look at his results while he has been in office. The results are sad, ergo our current president is a boy unable to effectively do a man/s or woman's job. Face the facts the boy president is a failure, rated worst among all presidents in your life time.

True. But we're still in a pickle, nevertheless.

Unless one can get a decent education and one can find a decent job, offering opportunities doesn't help.

The unions and progressive liberals have destroyed much of the public school system and many students have been denied a decent education.

Obama and his progressive liberal ideologues have destroyed jobs and businesses growing and taking risks with Obamacare and more burdensome government regulations.

So unless there's a way to erase the slate and start over again, it's going to be a long haul tearing down this progressive liberal mountain which has obstructed any chance of many people moving forward.

Eed you are a pathetic liar.

There are many terms to describe a young person.

Face it, you use the term 'Boy" because you are a racist & mistakenly believe you are being clever.

I have news.

You are not clever.

You are a racist f*ck

You are a racisrt f*ck.

Must you always lie like the uneducated idiot that you prove to be daily? Rated the worst by Cheney...That's laughable since Obama's approval is twice as high as his or Bush. And even the dumbest of the dumb know that calling a black person a "Boy" is racist...Again a proven lie. Your hatred fueled by your political ignorance is obvious to all. I suggest you stick to telling us all what you had for dinner. LOSER.

And, of course, you've never liked me going way back because of my strong opinions and not being able to successfully put me in my place with your riddles and condescension.
So you're opinion of me, therefore, is tainted by this and doesn't count.
Give it up babe__I've never changed my take on you__not once.

I've always known that you post on different threads using different names and when bored will post with yourself to pass time.

You're a racist, scumbag topix troll.

On the brighter side__you're far more clever than Flack the lying fair tax stooge.

But not as clever as Jax.

The fair tax people are liars.
They claim a 23% rate but it is really a 30% rate.
They get the 23% by saying under their scheme, when you spend $100.00,$23 dollars goes to the tax.
This is lying.
A sales tax is calculated thusly.
ST = Sales tax rate * price.
If the rate is 6% & you spend $50, the tax is .06* 50 or $3.00.
If you spend $77 & the tax is $23, then the rate would be calculated as 100(st/ price) or 100(23/77) or 29.9% or just say 30%
So when Flack & the fair tax dipsticks start talking about this 23% sales tax, it is actually a 30% tax. In PA, if your shopping trip purchases add up to $170.00, the tax will make it $231.20.
Who benefits? Wealthy people. Corporations who makes up the difference???? Guess.
Why do you libtards always have to change the question before you answer it? Because you want the answer to fit your profile! Now go back and try to understand how you changed the question, then answer it. I don't have time to deal with your dumbass right now so you have plenty of time.

"When people who don’t know me well, black or white, discover my background (and it is usually a discovery, for I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites), I see the split-second adjustments they have to make, the searching of my eyes for some telltale sign. They no longer know who I am. Privately, they guess at my troubled heart, I suppose – the mixed blood, the divided soul, the ghostly image of the tragic mulatto trapped between two worlds."
~Barack Obama from Dreams of My Father

He sure does overestimate and overanalyze his being of mixed race, doesn't he? He seems to think he's the only person on the planet who comes from a racially mixed marriage.

No one I know ever overthinks it like he does.

You're right.(See how easy it is to admit that?)
The quote is actually from an article written by Steve Sailer who wrote a detailed analysis of Dreams from My Father, describing the narrator as "a humor-impaired Holden Caulfield whose preppie angst is fueled by racial regret" but also praising it as "an impressive book" with an "elegant, carefully wrought prose style."
The "grievance" quote comes from the following passage from Sailer's article:
"In reality, Obama provides a disturbing test of the best-case scenario of whether America can indeed move beyond race. He inherited his father's penetrating intelligence; was raised mostly by his loving liberal white grandparents in multiracial, laid-back Hawaii, where America's normal race rules never applied; and received a superb private school education. And yet, at least through age 33 when he wrote Dreams from My Father , he found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against his mother's race."
Politifact even agrees it's an arguable point whether it's a fair characterization of the views expressed in Obama's book.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
But here is the other full quote from "Dreams from My Father" [pg. xv]:
"When people who don’t know me well, black or white, discover my background (and it is usually a discovery, for I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites), I see the split-second adjustments they have to make, the searching of my eyes for some telltale sign. They no longer know who I am. Privately, they guess at my troubled heart, I suppose – the mixed blood, the divided soul, the ghostly image of the tragic mulatto trapped between two worlds. And if I were to explain that no, the tragedy is not mine, or at least not mine alone, it is yours, sons and daughters of Plymouth Rock and Ellis Island, it is yours, children of Africa, it is the tragedy of both my wife’s six-year-old cousin and his white first grade classmates, so that you need not guess at what troubles me, it’s on the nightly news for all to see, and that if we could acknowledge at least that much then the tragic cycle begins to break down…well, I suspect that I sound incurably naive, wedded to lost hopes, like those Communists who peddle their newspapers on the fringes of various college towns. Or worse, I sound like I’m trying to hide from."

Sounds like he struggled a lot with self-image and animosity of some kind. Wouldn't you agree?
so you're saying that the Tea party and Obama have something in common?
