HA! Too Simplistic is a woman!

Do you guys read your posts before you post them? I was just wondering because most of what you all write is rambling incoherent nonsense. In general you all sound like people who can't hold an original thought in your heads--you're just repeating the talking points ON BOTH SIDES. The liberals spout the liberal crap, the conservatives the typical conservative crap. It renders "discussion boards" a complete and total WASTE OF TIME because there is open mindedness on either side so there is no point in having a debate or discussion. You all are so set in your ways that there is no point in talking about it because you come to the table with your mind already made up. And we complain when our politicians do that. HELLO!? Don't you guys want to have a REAL discussion, and dare I say it, PROGRESS? The liberals don't seem all that progressive to me after all.

Naw! your racism and other divisions are the blame!
How else does one conquer???
There it is! Black people have been saying this for years that when the sh(it gets funky, that those who have enjoyed the BENEFITS of racism would want to cry that "we are in this together!"
I see you prefer segregation....

MLK would be proud....NOT!

@ petro...(in valley girl nasal tone) Say What???

As an AA who has heard stories from their elders; who had to endure the atrocities of a deranged race who are bent on hate because of their "perception of superiority", cannot and will not CONVINCE me of AA's responsibility of "america being on her death bed.

When true knowledge and just some damn common sense would tell you "evil must destroy itself" unfortunately, it takes the innocents with IT!

Lazy...hmmm! Yall sat on your flat asses for 400 years! ANY COUNTRY BUILT ON OPPRESSION IS DOOMED TO FAIL!!!

STOP repeating your history" then you will not have to play the blame game...get it...got it...GOOD...jackass!!!

We recently almost got one with this economic downturn, but again our leaders chose for our country to go further in debt rather than have current day Americans pay the price for the selfish bill they run up.
Robert Ward is right and we all should look in the mirror when trying to find someone to blame for interrupting our selfish pleasures. Unfortunately it is much easier to blame somebody/something else.Many of the folks today come from the "Me First" generation and are still demanding "Me First".
Let us not forget the parasites with false pride. Those that enjoy the freedom in America yet do nothing and yet have the gall to dispect others. Let us not forget those that sit back and let others make the sacrifices, try to discourage others to hide their cowardice and justify their position by dislocating their allegance to a concept that is foolish and profane.

Mostly true. The former regime spent and spent and spent our taxes, and the banking institutions doled out to us "on the cheap" to its sheep its Monopoly Money (no pun intended on the word monopoly) so that we...me...and you could have what we have.

We...me...you...are living in a Paradise with all of our "toys", all of our abundant, variously rich, and for the most part inexpensive food. We live not in Rome, but we are Romans. True, there are very poor amongst us; we share the border (at one time a seamless one) with Mexico whom we "won" and added to our "Great Exploitations", because we are,after all, America, the greatest Empire in history, second only to Greece, Rome, Persia, Egypt (and help me out...who else...my knowledge of history is lacking).

A moment ago I called us Romans, but we...you...and I...are also plebians who must serve the State...I mean the Banks, the Insurance and Pharmaceutical companies, and of course, our number one Employer:the Pentagon.

We are Centurions all! Many of us are at lower places on the "food chain"; some of us are in the middle; and very few of us are at the top.

Serve. Obey. You have thy WalMart!
You have your iPods and cell phones!
Be happy!
And you now have a president who is trying to undo what has been done for centuries. Please, God, help us and him, to restore our goodness! To restore the Ideals of Democracy bestowed upon us by Jefferson! Lincoln! Franklin! Adams!(All of them)
