Hey, what about that REPUBLICAN congressman who was busted for cocaine possession last week? I thought you Republicans claimed you were conservative. Cocaine possession is a pretty liberal stance on our country's drug laws that you always claim to be so supportive of.

Why is it when a Republican gets caught doing something, Republicans say all politicians are crooked, but when a Dem is caught doing something, it's those damn liberals?

I could care less if someone not matter what their politics wants to smoke weed or do a little coke as long as they are spending their own money on it and not stealing from someone that works hard for their money and belongings and they aren't behind the wheel of a vehicle or doing it around children.

At least he's not like Tom Brower Democrat from Hawaii. It's bad enough that they have the highest homeless rate in the country but this jackass is making it harder on homeless people by taking a sledgehammer and busting up the carts they keep they're belongings in. So much for "Liberal Tolerance". This guy gets the scum bag of the year award.

Granted there are a few people out there homeless because of laziness but I believe most just need a job and a chance to get on their feet but the jobs just aren't there. Unemployment is almost as bad as during the Great Depression and now the national liberal media is finally reporting the truth in the fact that Obama had his people lie about unemployment numbers before the election.

No, that would be the democratic party, the same party that wanted to keep slavery as the status quo, the same party responsible for the KKK, Jim Crow Laws. The same party that voted against the Civil Rights Act (Byrd filibustered against it for hours). You better check your facts.

The Tea Party wants nothing more than to adhere to the Constitution and reduce the size of government despite the lies that the liberal media try to spin.

(The same party that voted against the Civil Rights Act.) You are some kind of stupid or a Republican. Byrd did FB against the Act, said later it was the worst thing that he ever did in Congress. The other worst thing he said he had done was be a member of the KKK which is about the same thing as being a member of the NRA.

Your delusional and my IQ is 132 so I guess your the stupid one.

Again, you need to check yourself, you don't know what the hell your talking about.

The Democratic Party is about racism and intolerance, proven by the fact that they want to keep blacks enslaved through government social handouts that keep them poor and on welfare, food stamps and HUD because these programs are designed so that you can't pull yourself up and out of poverty once your dependent on them. You can thank LBJ for that.

Going back to the 50s for a moment, let me give a little back story on LBJ. He was the Democrat Senate Majority Leader when Eisenhower sponsored the civil rights act from 1957, and the 1960 voting rights act. It was Johnson who lead the fight against these bills and was a big part of why they were so watered down. Back to the 60&#8242;s, when Johnson took over, after JFK’s assassination, he had a chance to jump on the upcoming Civil Rights act of 1964 and claim it as his own. So he took advantage, in his own words,“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

Byrd only said he regretted his participation in the KKK because he was found out and wanted to protect his position of power in Washington, his feelings never really changed, if they had he wouldn't have used the term "white n*****" twice on national TV. Are you aware that aware that three years after he claims he quit paying dues to the KKK he wrote a letter to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK saying that "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia" and "in every state in the Union."

The NRA is about gun rights not racism.

Anti gun laws are racist in origin and always have been. Before the Civil War ended, State “Slave Codes” prohibited slaves from owning guns. After President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and after the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery was adopted and the Civil War ended in 1865, States persisted in prohibiting blacks, now freemen, from owning guns under laws renamed “Black Codes.” They did so on the basis that blacks were not citizens, and thus did not have the same rights, including the right to keep and bear arms protected in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as whites. This view was specifically articulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in its infamous 1857 decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford to uphold slavery.
The United States Congress overrode most portions of the Black Codes by passing the Civil Rights Act of 1866. The legislative histories of both the Civil Rights Act and the Fourteenth Amendment, as well as The Special Report of the Anti-Slavery Conference of 1867, are replete with denunciations of those particular statutes that denied blacks equal access to firearms.[Kates, Handgun Prohibition and the Original Meaning of the Second Amendment, 82 Mich. L. Rev. 204, 256 (1983)] However, facially neutral disarming through economic means laws remain in effect.
After the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1868, most States turned to “facially neutral” business or transaction taxes on handgun purchases. However, the intention of these laws was not neutral. An article in Virginia’s official university law review called for a “prohibitive tax … on the privilege” of selling handguns as a way of disarming “the son of Ham”, whose “cowardly practice of ‘toting’ guns has been one of the most fruitful sources of crime ….Let a negro board a railroad train with a quart of mean whiskey and a pistol in his grip and the chances are that there will be a murder, or at least a row, before he alights.”[Comment, Carrying Concealed Weapons, 15 Va L. Reg. 391, 391-92 (1909); George Mason University Civil Rights Law Journal, Vol. 2, No. 1,“Gun Control and Racism,” Stefan Tahmassebi, 1991, p. 75] Thus, many Southern States imposed high taxes or banned inexpensive guns so as to price blacks and poor whites out of the gun market.

If you have to go back that far to try and label a Democratic party that is totally different today, then you are either uneducated about the fact that the people who were Democrats in those days and stood for those things are now Republicans or you're just a huckster who isn't embarrassed to try to portray something that he knows isn't true as being true. You're right. The Southern Dems of those days stood for all of those things. So in those days, you would have been a Southern Dem and I would have been a Republican because the Republicans of 150, 100 and 75 years ago stood for the things that Dems stand for today. Probably a little to complicated for you to grasp, but it's part of history in case you'd care to look it up.

You're not trying to say that you are against all those things you mention above are you? Today's Republicans warmly embrace the racism those things stood for. Haven't you read the anti-black posts of some of the Republicans on here?

I never said I was a Republican, I consider myself a Libertarian. One who advocates maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the government.

But I reject your idea that Republicans embrace racism. That's nothing more than lies and propaganda promoted by a liberal owned media. As I have stated before, the liberal democratic party are the real racists in this country and they work hard to hide that fact but you can't hide the fact that all their handout programs from welfare and food stamps and HUD are designed to keep minorities and the poor enslaved to the system that they have designed.

Democrats are now and always have been racists.

So they were racists when they were didn't care anything about helping blacks in the 1800s when they were against freeing the slaves and they were racists when the party went through it's change of values in the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s when they focuses on helping blacks get out of poverty and championed civil rights? Very immature argument. Really, study some history about how the parties are completely different from the way they were 100 years ago. You're not alone that you don't understand that, so don't feel bad.

They are not helping blacks or anyone else out of poverty. The system the democrats have designed keep people on assistance in poverty because if your on those programs and you try to earn extra money or do anything else to lift yourself out of the situation your in they cut off your assistance leaving you in worse shape than you were in. I have studied history, and democrats haven't changed at all, they have just found other ways of keeping people enslaved while trying to convince you that they are helping you.
There is no incentive what so ever for people on assistance to help themselves out of poverty in the present day and time as evidenced by the fact that at least eleven states have more people on welfare than people who are working and paying taxes.

Take off your blinders, turn off the mainstream liberal media and look around at real life. You are the one that is delusional if you think that democrats want to help anyone and they never focused on championing civil rights, if anything the democrats are the ones that tried to block civil rights. Republicans were the party that championed civil rights, it was a republican president that desegregated the schools in the 1960's, republicans put an end to slavery despite democrats best attempts to try to claim Lincoln was a democrat, hell the republican party was formed for the express purpose of ending slavery. All democrats want to do is steal hard earned money from working people in the form of taxes.

I'd say you're young, but I can't say you aren't smart. Actually, you're probably more slick than you are smart. But, then you say something like Democratic policies don't help blacks or ANYONE out of poverty. And,that's just immature. Many people have used welfare and other public assistance programs to help themselves out of poverty. I know of a woman who was a battered wife on welfare and she used its benefits to pull herself off of it, get a degree in social work and now runs a program that helps women like she once was. She would know much better than you about the benefits and disadvantages of welfare and she chose to help others use it to better their lives and get off welfare. Immature statements that start with, "nobody does" and "everyone is" and other similar types of statements are rarely accurate because very little is all or nothing. You sing the tune of the far right group that takes advantage of trying to fool uneducated, non-thinking people (like Fox News watchers) into believing your dishonest drivel, but I can tell you're a little too smart to believe what you are saying. You're just a slick snake-oil salesman who is probably quite successful at fooling those you're trying to fool. But, that's the problem with right-wingers. They have to be dishonest in almost everything they say because if they honestly portrayed what their party wants, they would have to admit that they only represent a small portion of greedy, selfish people. Congratulations on how you've chosen to live your life.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for.

That is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

I will commend you for at least stating your opinion without any name calling and insults. It's rare that I get that from people who share your politics.

I don't think anyone who's wealthy had ever been legislated out of prosperity by programs designed to help the poor (which I will admit certainly aren't perfect, but are better than doing nothing like we did before these programs were established). I also don't have any desire to legislate the poor into prosperity. A hand upward to where they have a better chance of moving into a better lifestyle, yes, but I don't think any of our public assistance programs have the goal of making them rich and prosperous. I also can't think of any instance where one person received without working for, therefore causing another person work without receiving." Maybe you can give me an example of what you mean.
