You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old white child who was shot at point blank range by two black teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.
I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media doesn't care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn't care and the media doesn't care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.
There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.
So while you are seeking justice for Treyvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Treyvon.
Thank you...

So true but it is only a story unless people decide to stop allowing our government and the blood sucking political and civil activist to shape our views. I don't mean an uprising the likes of Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson would tolerate where property is destroyed, tax dollars wasted, and people injured or killed so that the leaders like Sharpton and Jackson can fill their pockets. I'm talking about regular Americans standing up for TRUE equality where each man or woman is free to choose their path but also has to live with the consequences of their decisions free from racial rhetoric. Freedom for each individual to control the outcome of every area of their life. Areas like school studies, atheletics, religion, career choices, lifestyle choices, and financial choices. As long as we keep allowing our government to control us we will never be truly free. Government has it's place but the current American government is too far reaching and too out of control. There should be no place in our society for people like Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson. All we need to do to make them go away is stop paying attention to them.

The obvious is financial and no one can argue otherwise. The financial numbers show this clearly. Obama came blazing on the scene by crying that Bush spending more than we take in is "un-American". Obama's solution to every situation, financial or otherwise, is to spend money regardless of whether or not we have it to spend. Talk about hypocritical.
Then there are things like racial divisions that Obama and his administration cause by inserting themselves into situations they have no business in or saying as the leader of this nation. The beer summit, Treyvon Martin, envolvement in Jeremiah Wright's anti-American, anti-white church, Eric Holder's comments about "my people", Obama calling his grandmother a "Typical white person", Obama's comments in a 1995 interview where he said things like Obama admits his Redistribution of Wealth is to SAVE the African American community SO HE CAN ENSURE HIS OWN SALVATION!, or "I think that whether you are a white executive living out in the suburbs, who doesn’t want to pay taxes to inner-city children for them to go to school", Obama saying that anyone who disagrees with him is the "enemy", and "What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving". I'm running out of room so I'll stop but the list goes on and on. There is simply no end to Obama's racism. Add that to the financial destruction Obama is causing in this nation and he is clearly the worst president this nation has ever seen. The fact that he is half black just gives him a crutch to lean on everytime something he does goes wrong, which is all the time.
Once again, a indication based totally on subjective opinion, lacking any objectivity what so ever.

Other than the Beer Summit and him mentioning Treyvon Martin you can not prove a word of what you wrote or what you are trying to indicate.

I am sure you will disagree with that assessment, so lets just cut to the chase, present the information that will back up your exaggerations.

Damn, this woman has a problem keeping her young sons alive.

Sherry West talks Friday March 22, 2013, about being shot in the leg Thursday, Mar. 21, 2013 as she pushed her baby in his stroller in Brunswick, Ga., by a young teen who then shot and killed her 13-month-old son Antonio.

West has been down this trail of grief before.

Shaun Glassey who was killed with a steak knife in March 2008 during an attack involving several other teens on a street corner in Gloucester County, N.J., according to news reports.

Glassey “and some other boys were going to ambush a kid,” Bernie Weisenfeld, a spokesman for the Gloucester County prosecutor’s office, told the Associated Press.

But the target was able to wrestle the weapon out of Glassey’s hand and he “ended up on the wrong end of the knife,” Weisenfeld said.

This country is greater and stronger then ever before for the top 2% and weaker for the working class and the poor, all by design.
Now lets all imagine we are in November 1999!
The 2% will always prosper because they know where to invest their money in every type of economy to make a killing. Good for them. If the working class (of which I am a part of) and the poor wish to raise themselves up to the 2%, then all they have to do is decide that they want 2% status then go get it. A person's success or failure rests squarely on the shoulder's of that individual. If that person doesn't reach whatever goal they set for themselves, then it is nobody elses fault. Not to say that there are not extreme circumstances that may be beyond the control of one individual but they are rare. It irks me for people to blame someone or something else for the way their life turned out. Not sure what November 1999 has to do with anything besides the fact that it rhymed.

Life is maybe a little better than it was 8 years ago, when the economy almost collpsed. Clinton presided over the greatest economic expansion in a generation. He walked out of the Oval office with a couple billion lying in surplus. We are 13 years out from the end of his administration. What in the world could have happened in the interim? You are perhaps the one who is brainwashed. You are certainly a d!#k.

Life for who is better? The top and bottom 2%? One of them earned a better life and one thinks it's better but it's actually not. The rest of America is much worse off than they were 8 years ago. Got to give Clinton his props. Many say that if his policies would have stayed in place, it would have been disastrous for America but those critics are speculating. The fact is that we ended Clinton's presidency with a surplus in the budget and a small deficit so we need to end speculation with that. Life under Bush was not as good as it was under Clinton but far better than it was under Obama for most Americans. Like Clinton, you have to realize that at the end of Bush's term, as a whole, people weren't suffering like they are under Obama. The signs for the economy though were certainly troublesome at the end of Bush's term and he shoulders responsibility for that. As for Obama, only democratic supporters actually think he's doing a good job. He was handed a sinking economy and, instead of patching the holes in our ship, he took a hammer and started making those holes larger. People are right in criticizing Bush for the deficits at the end of his term (Obama being one of them). Obama came in promising that he could cut the deficit in half in his first term. Instead, a deficit took 232 years to reach, was almost doubled in only 4 years. Obama owns that 100% just like Bush owned his deficit during his 8 years. Instead, Obama has cast blame on anyone who gets near him. I think it's the blame game that people hate about Obama because it's the one thing that doesn't deter Obama from getting focused and proactive about cutting his spending. It appears as though he actually believes his own lies about it being someone else's fault.

In a corporatist system, the wealth and power of individuals and small businesses is dwarfed by the overwhelming dominance of the corporations. Eventually, the corporations end up owning almost everything and they end up dominating nearly every aspect of society. This benifits a few at the expence of many. Whats good for them is a disaster for us, and the farther we go the worse it gets.

Hopefully they will do a whole lot better than the president did. The president is proposing cuts of $1.137 billion from our $1.4 trillion yearly deficit. That's cutting a whole 0.000812% of our yearly deficit spending. Way to go Barack!!! I would take a 20 year plan of deficit reduction and be happy with it. That would mean a balanced budget for 243 consecutive years with an additional $70 billion in cuts each year. A full 61.57 times more than the president's proposal each year. Given the financial challenge facing us, Obama's proposal is insulting and so would the proposed plan I outlined. He knows his followers, like you, will think "What could I do with X million dollars?" because you would look at it in the context of your own finances. Obama's supporters have no concept of just how much $1.4 trillion actually is.

Hey BFF, have you miss me?

I see you are still peddling your 100% unadulterated BS, like this
$1.4 trillion yearly deficit crap.

Where do you get this crap from, thin air? You sound like you must be posting from the summit of Pikes Peak. To bad I did not you were their or I would have bought you a cup of coffee.

Look here, this is just one source, but rest assured there are many more that will tell you the same thing.
..........

WASHINGTON — A continued decline in the federal budget deficit this year is resulting in a better than expected fiscal forecast for 2013 from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

The CBO projects a $642 billion budget deficit for fiscal year 2013, down more than $200 billion from its February estimate and the smallest annual shortfall since 2008. It is the lowest level of deficit spending to date under President Obama, who faced $1 trillion or more in annual deficits during his first term.

I will presume that was an honest mistake because I just can't bring myself to believe a good Christian person like you would deliberately mislead a person.

Would you?

Looks like that leaves you two honest options Christian.

1. Retract the statement.

BTW I see where you got that now, lets just share this information with every one shall we?

The gaps reached a record $1.41 trillion in budget year 2009, which began four months before Obama took office. That deficit was due largely to the worst recession since the Great Depression. Tax revenue plummeted.
