You have to be the most despicable hypocrite ever. Do you have any redeeming qualities, a total embarrassment to yourself your country, and basically the human race. A lowlife coward of the lowest order.

Hi Homer,
I was waiting for a parking spot at a store; I had turned around and came up behind the car with my blinker on and waited. They pulled out, I pulled in. Right beside me a man pulled in and started screaming at me that I took his spot! I said, no, that's not true, I had been waiting for it with my signal on. Well, he came into the store and started yelling at me "Yeah, that's right, you always get your way as usual, blah, blah, blah" I figured he was a dittohead with a gun so I just walked away. They're driving around in rages, you never know who is packing heat, looking for a fight.

Obama Attack Machine At It Again
The Obama Campaign is lying about Paul Ryan’s Medicare Reform proposals. Will the press let them get away with it? As we sit here laughing. Sure, they’ll cover it. Sure they will. Check out the full article linked above on The Weekly Standard’s website.
Today, at 9:22 a.m., Obama campaign manager Jim Messina sent out an email blasting Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate, Wisconsin congressman and House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan.“[Ryan's] plan also would end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher system, shifting thousands of dollars in health care costs to seniors,” Messina wrote.

Sopping up the tripe from truthout again?
The issue here--you hypersensitive fool--is ISIS is here despite denials from some of your fellow Progressives. ISIS/ISIL is a real threat to the US.
Now that you want to make it about the POTUS, okay let's go down that lane. ISIS/ISIL declared they were at war with the US--what was Obama's response?
Lordy jesus, you are just plain out stupid, a special kind of stupid. did you bother to read my post before commenting, obviously not. In it I said ISIS/ISIL is a threat

What to do about is it a little more complex.

Do we arm the Kurds and risk alienating Turkey and all the other countries with a large Kurdish minority. Arming them may lead to another war, with Kurds establishing their own country then seeking territory from other countries occuppied by Kurds?
Do we help Assad?
Do we make allies of Iran?
Where do you think ISIS is getting its financial, religiouos and political support from?
What country in the neigborhood has the largest Sunni population and is home of radical extremist Wahabbism?

This whole problem stems from removing Saddam from power. It was further excerbated by allowing Malaki, who was in exisle in Iran for years, to exclude Iraqi Sunnis and Kurds from the gov't. He brought this on.

what to do now is something to complex for you simple minded , us or them folk

<quoted text>Sorry. I was thinking about two things at once and was reading your and posted something from ImRight59 I was about to comment on. My mistake.
RealBrother may be intense and he may have had it up to here with some of the people on here, but as a black man on an AA forum he resonates. A lot of the things he speaks of lie in the subconscious of many bigots that are unknowingly perpetuating old habits that have made this country the way it is. I know this for a fact. Stereotypes that bigots in America hold are upheld via community through the lie that America's power is in it's White dominated power structure.(I'm sure you disagree) It's subtle and goes almost unnoticed. It's in jokes that are hateful, BUT funny (smile); assumptions based on the real actions of individuals that are used to justify the treatment of large groups; and stirring up fear by calling people savage and characterizing them by the worst example of humanity.
We can do better as a nation, and we must. I don't think RealBrother is a racist by definition. I could be wrong. If he is...I'm sure he would admit it. I would not condone it (never will). If you are black in America you may have some stories told to you by your father/ mother/ grandparents/ uncle that is so racist that it's hard to believe (when you get older) that those types of people just disappeared. Then you come on a forum for AA's and there are people just saying the most hateful things ever. Some are old, but worse is that that it's seemingly so easy to come up with new hate talk. This doesn't give people that much room to get rid of their skepticism. And when people are just calling you names based on your race. You will call back if you have pride (or at least time) and feel inclined. This is not racism. Racism comes from thinking your race is better than others. Most blacks I know think people are equal, but all of them can be made to believe anything; black, white, and all colors in between.
Sorry for the long post. peace.
"Realbrother003" is a dyed-in-the-wool misogynist, because he spews hatred for women every chance he gets. Denigrating 50+% of black folks only alienates the very black women who should be black men's allies. He has said some stupidly toxic things like man-hating lesbians should marry. How crazy is that? I get fed up with the nonsense he and others like to post, in the name of black unity. He also doesn't have to admit to also being a racist, because he proves it by his very words. I see him as a mirror image of the self-righteous intolerance and racism that he likes to condemn, only in blackface.

Good old Mitt:

It was clear to Mitt Romney within 24 hours that the Libyan embassy attack was a terrorist attack. Barrack Obama quickly criticized Romney for shooting first and aiming later and went on for the next two weeks to blame the attack on demonstrations over a 6th grade level production about Islam on YouTube.

Funny, a couple of weeks ago I heard just the opposite:
There was a hush from the crowd and then a collective gasp followed by, "Oh, Obama is actually in the White House for once" in the middle of Times Square! Totally accurate.

The Libya Lies

We were told for two weeks that it was a demonstration when the White House knew within a few hours that it was a terrorist attack.
A live feed was available from a drone that was flying over Benghazi.

Obama’s Failure to Lead
Obama went campaigning after he knew there had been a terrorist attack.
Obama mentioned terrorist attack only once in the rose garden.
Obama didn’t speak until after Mitt Romney.
Criticized Mitt Romney for shooting first and aiming later.

Failure to Protect
3 Requests were made for backup. Those requests were denied.
With a 7 hour battle, help was within reach.
White House refuses to say where Obama was while the attack occurred

My own impeccable sources have revealed he was hiding under his bed.
