We give it those that need it.

The poor need help to get back on their feet.

The wealthy do not need it.

The money given to poorer people gets put back in the economy.

The money handed to wealthy people not so much.

Wealthy people that actually do invest in projects that create jobs are rewarded without handing them more welfare. Trading pieces of paper is not creating jobs. You buying shares of AT&T from me does little for AT&T.

We have the ones writing the tax code funded by those that proper from that tax code. We have a political party that blocks removing tax advantages of US companies taking jobs overseas & can't even remove oil industry subsidies. You know, the party you support.

So,if you are as educated as you claim, why do you support this party? Why do you support the party that brought us this recession and support their efforts to hinder our recovery?

People called William Jefferson Clinton "Billy Boy" was that racist? Is slick 'Willy' racist?
Are men sexist and racist who tell blonde jokes? What about those who tell Jewish, Hispanic,

Referring to a female as a "bitch" is that sexist and racist too?

What about fat jokes is that sexist, racist or insensitive? Maybe all three?

Harry Reid saying that Obama could be successful thanks, in part, to his "light-skinned" appearance and speaking patterns "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one" is racist.

Joe Biden saying 'You have to be part Indian to work in a 7-11' is racist.

Making excuses for Reid and Biden, embracing KKK scumbags like the 'evolved' Robert Byrd before he died, and calling any black person that refuses to buy into your ¨we're here to help¨ bullshit ¨Uncle Tom¨ is not only racist, it's hypocrisy of the highest order.

No wonder so many urban areas populated by African Americans are still suffering in poverty after decades of democrat rule.

I don't give a rat's ass if what Biden said is racist or if what Reid said wax racist, it doesn't excuse you & you ignorant ilk to make racial slurs.

My God.

I have never called anyone an "Uncle Tom". You are now lying.

BLACKS
I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their dedication to exceptional civic values, stable traditional families, parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture and their unflagging pride in maintaining exemplary clean, neat and orderly homes.

Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people.
Property values are boosted and energized by the entry of African Americans into an area thanks to the caring and sincere respect they show for these communities, their absolute dedication to lives of law abiding peaceful neighborliness, and the examples of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant, can-do culture of integrity and honor.
Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

ok. Muslim Brotherhood.

Anti-Muslim activists on the Right have consistently warned that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration. But if their unhinged McCarthyism is to be believed, then Mitt Romney’s campaign has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood as well, as Romney’s campaign has named George Salem, Samah Norquist and David Ramadan “National Co-Chairs of Arab Americans for Romney.”

Pamela Geller labeled George Salem’s Arab American Institute a “nototrious anti-Israel Israel [sic] organization” composed of “Islamic supremacists” and led by a “Jew hater.” She even suggested that the AAI seeks “Jewish annihilation” by backing Mideast peace efforts.

Geller, Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer, William Murray, Andrea and James Lafferty and others sent a letter to Edwin Meese demanding he withdraw his endorsement of Virginia Del. David Ramadan because of his purported ties to Muammar Gadaffi and “radical views,” including his support for the right to build the Park 51 Islamic Community Center. James Lafferty said Ramadan is an “extremist” who should not even “be allowed to continue to live in the United States,” and Geller said he is a “stealth jihadist” and a “Muslim Brotherhood plant.”

Perhaps no chair of Romney’s committee is despised more than Samah Norquist, wife of conservative leader Grover Norquist. Glenn Beck and Jerry Boykin have said that Norquist is a lackey for the Muslim Brotherhood and according to anti-Muslim activists like Gaffney and David Horowitz, Norquist secretly converted to Islam and joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the behest of his wife. Conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell wrote in a report for the American Conservative Union that she is “certain that Mr. Gaffney’s hatred [for Norquist] is further fueled by the fact that Grover is married to a Muslim-American woman (who also has worked for the United States government in very responsible positions, I might add!).”

Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.

But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

Please point out anyone who has made excuses for Biden or Reid.

Point out anyone who embraced Robert Byrd, other than folks like Flake's daddy, who kept the racist in office for all those years.

You blame liberals for the voting record of a redneck state like WVA??

How about showing us how much better blacks are doing in deep red states, with deep red cities in them.

Is their poverty and crime the fault of Repugnants who are in charge??

You talk thru your ass, smells like Gunner is back with a new name.

But Holder's own record belies his lofty promise. As the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia from 1993 to 1997, Holder was in charge of policing the local police. When police violence spiraled out of control, he did little to protect Washington residents from rampaging lawmen.

The number of killings by Washington police doubled between 1988 and 1995, the year 16 civilians died due to police gunfire. Washington police shot and killed people at a higher rate than any other major city police department, as a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post investigation revealed in late 1998. The Post reported that "Holder said he did not detect a pattern of problematic police shootings and could not recall the specifics of cases he personally reviewed." Holder declared: "I can't honestly say I saw anything that was excessive."

There was such a dearth of oversight from Holder's office that Washington police failed to count almost a third of the people killed by their officers between 1994 and 1997. Even when police review boards ruled that shootings were unjustified or found contradictions in officers' testimony, police were not prosecuted. In one case, a police officer shot a suspect four times in the back when he was unarmed and lying on the ground. But Holder's office never bothered interviewing the shooter.

Some of the most abusive cases involved police shooting into cars - a practice which is severely discouraged because of the high risk of collateral damage. Holder told the Post: "I do kind of remember more than a few in cars. I don't know if that's typical of what you find in police shootings outside Washington" Actually, "more than 50 officers over five years had shot at unarmed drivers in cars," the Post noted, and Washington police were more than 20 times as likely to shoot at cars than were New York City police. Reports about some of the shootings were tainted by police perjury.

U.K. official: British Muslims fighting for the Islamic State far surpasses those in armed forces

A British Member of Parliament told Newsweek on Wednesday that there are more than twice as many British Muslims fighting for the Islamic State group than in the nation’s military.

“If you look across the whole of the country, and the various communities involved, 500 going over each year would be a conservative estimate,” Khalid Mahmood, the MP for Perry Barr in Birmingham, told the magazine. Mr. Mahmood believes that there are at least 1,500 British Muslims now fighting in the Middle East on behalf of the terrorist organization. The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense tallies the number of Muslims in the British armed forces at 600, Newsweek reported.
