Reading the comments and considering the dialect and the culture of the people within the community posting to add to it, would make anyone laugh. How serious and knowledgeable at how some of you actually believe you are is considered better humor than a Comedy Central roast.

So when did Pemiscot county, a population less than 19,000 become the hub of US governmental affairs and foreign diplomacy procedures? Because a few of you post more garbage of issue you only know what your computer screen tells you and you become a expert on the matter.

Most of you cant form an opinion on your own behalf because you have became dependent on the internet or television to form one for you. You sit there read or listen and absorb what the media tells you, or you post YouTube links with a passion. Shame none of you had this form of communication as children because maybe you would have been more educated than you are lacking in of now.

Until you blind fools open your eyes and see the truth, you can continue on this no where leading path you all have been so gullible to walk down. You all think black or white and the others are all idiots. If thats true then why has the country became a cess pool at the fault of whom? The black or the white? Think about it....then again nevermind because you cant Google that answer.

Just how many of you have donated to the Republican party?

Where is your show of support?
Do you have a sign in your yard?
Do you have a bumper sticker?
Where is the Republican HQ for Pemiscot county located??

For those who defend the cause, why do you hide behind a computer from it?

You know, I could turn it around and point out that it is YOU who are so closed-minded & blinded by your own beliefs - that you cannot even consider any other opinion but you own. But, I won't - because it would be wasted on a person who is so "closed-minded" and opinionated.
Yes, I do realize times change & people change - but some things NEVER CHANGE!!! Republians have always been on the side of the rich - and Democrats have always been on the side of the middle-class, the working poor, the poor & the children & the sick & aged!
They always have - and they always will...
Alumni, I can shatter your whole argument and already have proven I am not closed minded. I've never taken an interest in Rush Limbaugh. However, when you made your statements about him, I didn't take your word for it, I went and did research on my own from non biased sites to learn the truth and I got it. I read things that proved some of your statements were wrong. As for his political views, there are some I can agree, some I can ignore and some I would gladly debate with him.

As to your comment about me being opinionated, partially guilty. I do have my views, gained from research, and I do debate to defend those. However, if someone makes a good a point, I will research it to see if my opinion needs to change. I think that's called wisdom and change.

I can remember times that I was almost totally a liberal, but I grew up, I matured, and I changed as I saw the country changing around me.

One final note: You said democrats were always for the middle class. Was that during the 1950's when they were battling to keep segregation and racism as part of the American landscape?

No, it was not (not as far as the segregation issue) I'm ashamed to say.

But, thank God, it looks like the tide has changed!

Democrats are now the party of the African American & other minorities. But, sadly, it looks like Republicans have done an about face and turned there backs on not only African Americans - but also other minorities as well.(most especially have they turned their backs on African Americans since Obama became president)...

I'm glad to hear you used to be a liberal - you need to go back to some of your core beliefs & values. Yes, our country has changed around us - but some things never change - like basic human kindness & goodness...

In my life, I have never wavered - I have always been concerned about the welfare of others - and I hope & pray that never changes. I believe that is what Jesus taught us all through the bible...

Alumni,

Do you know why I'm not a liberal? I grew up and started researching things for myself instead of listening to dribble and dogma. I dig out my own answers and I don't parrot Fox News or MSNBC.

I wish you would.

I think you are full of crap!!! You listen to as much Limbaugh, Beck, Fox and the rest of the GOP propaganda machine as any of the other ditto-heads on this forum. You think by saying you do all this research that we'll think you're much wiser than you really.

You are nothing more than a brain-washed GOP ditto-head, but you have too much pride to admit it.

So get off that tired old cliche' about doing all this reasearch - because I know the truth...

This is a true picture of the democratic party. It is also why a lot of people from the Caruthersville area vote Republican.

The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.

Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the Friday prayers and Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said the purpose of the event is to hold political parties accountable for the issues faced by Muslim-Americans.

In particular, the event will target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment.

And while Muslim-Americans undeniably face distinct challenges, those who are well-informed on the dangers of radical Islam are expressing their doubts.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote:
The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims.

Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement
