Show us then Stupid. You made the claim. Let's see it your proofs or at least explain with facts how Obama has manufactured it and is taking advantage of the law. At least something more than the endless b.s. you're stuck on stupid listening to right wing hate media. If you can't show me, with facts, then just STFU and leave this forum. Why? Because no one can take you seriously. Your big mouth is just running on hate talk and ignorance or just plain stuck on stupid.

Go look at the Federal jobs website. In January, 2014, they were advertising for buses to carry up to 60,000 people from the southern border to Federal "detention" centers. That was over 6 months ago stupid. Look it up if you have a brain and know how to do something besides name call and run around being a bigot. You might actually learn something. And clean up your mouth and stop telling everyone else to "leave this forum". What an idiot you are.

The only thing Obama has proven is that a black president can be just as corrupt and incompetent as a white president. But you don't care about that; all you care about is that he's black. Thanks for proving you are the real racist.
wait... he's the best of both worlds... he's 1/2 black and 1/2 white...

Jason is into anything other than female Homo Sapiens. Farm animals are a fun family past time that he still enjoys with the family he has left. After his father and brothers were caught sexually abusing him, about the only family he has left around these parts is his mother. After his sister got the penis implant and Jason was found sneaking into her bedroom every night she finally left. She went out on her own. She does visit the farm from time to time. It must be something in the blood. I hear the father and brothers have a farm of their own. Mostly chickens and sheep. Well, they do have a couple hung male donkey's.
Maybe Jason can tell us if he still visits with his father and brothers anymore.

There you again with using that word 'coward' you like so much; and there you go again with another low information ignorant white trash non-response. OK - Here's my response to you. Anything I communicate to you here, I'll say to you in person. Let me know when you're available because I will say it straight to your fat face. You are an ignorant bitch!

What is the history of Juneteenth?
During the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on 22 September 1862, to be introduced at the beginning of January 1863. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the 10 states still in rebellion, freeing around 3 million of the 4 million slaves in captivity at the time.
Texas, even after military hostilities had ended, did not comply with the proclamation.
On 18 June 1865, Union General Gordon Granger, along with 2,000 federal troops, arrived in Galveston, Texas, to take possession of the state and enforce the emancipation of the men and women still in captivity. The announcement of "General Order No 3", read by Grander, was made on 19 June, now known as Juneteenth.
It read: "The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free."
Great Post!:)

If there is a law on the books stating they have to be found homes, where are all the "Christians" rushing to adopt them?

In any case, the last time a board member opened their mouth in public the troll from Hillsdale got it bloodied by a black guy. He says a lot less these days.

What the knuckle-draggers fail to realize that just because slavery was outlawed long ago doesn't lessen the pain or the current attitude toward blacks.
Yes some blacks earn a bad rep. but not all blacks do.

Say you are a 10 year old black student who is just studying slavery in History class.
You read where mostly the white man did this and that. If that was me I'd be p!ssed off at the white man even though my parents or their parents or their parents parents weren't slaves.

IT WILL TAKE DECADES TO SMOOTH OVER THE TENSIONS between Whites and Blacks and many innocent people will be hurt in the process.

Probably will take even longer with these pasty-face bigots spouting off the garbage their parents taught them.

Back to the 10 year old student;

So he hates the white man he learned of in his history book AND
he is discouraged by the way that certain white people treat him, watch him in stores and move away from him on the streets.

SO IN CLOSING;
All you stubborn ignorant backward black-hating folks will just extend reasons for some blacks to hate your children and your grandchildren and your great grandchildren. Your ignorance may even give them enough reason to hurt your children.

The biggest problem i see is you palefaces are too dumb to recognize that your actions and attitudes are the reason why there is black on white crime is as high as it is. U R a large part of the problem. Ha Ha Ha
