Larry, you're simply a butthurt racist yourself.
BTW, were people "racist" concerning Michael Jackson?

Poor Larry...all his black heroes are painted ladies.
Yes, many people were racist concerning Michael Jackson.

If John Boehner has never been to a tanning parlor, he'll be dead of jaundice in a month. Next, you'll tell me Ronald Reagan's hair was prematurely orange.

Also, "Clayton", you have lost your amusement value. Pick up your crayons and go home.

Actually I shouldn't be so sure "hilarious" is a male. At first I thought, well, women are not that dumb. But then Sarah Palin came to mind. So now I'm not certain.
You're weary because you're too stupid to spar. I've dumbed it down to your level and it's just too much for you. Sorry. Must you continue to talk to your puppets? I'm truly embarrassed for you.

Now go back into your hole and play with your sock puppets.
I do not wish a lobotomy for you. It's much too late for that. It's true, people like you give me a superiority complex.

Don't strain so much to sound clever. It's useless.

Since it was ok for you to insult Bush all those years, I see no reason to not give the purple lipped baboon a little ribbing. Oh I'll bet you're just swinging in your cage and tearing out your hair over my comments.
You just can't handle the truth and a little of your own medicine. Libs are not respected. They are crybaby losers who try to bully in order to get their way. They are unable to function on their own. They have to have a nanny from womb to tomb. They are an inept group of frauds, liars and cheats. Their leader, odumma is the best when it comes to being a crybaby, fraud, liar and cheat. Go find your pacifier and leave. Your Pampers are full.
I fart in your general direction. Enjoy.

The left never ceases to hate white people, a minority worldwide, to create another Latin state, on top of the existing 23.
The white liberals dislike themselves, misfits of society. They pull in people (democrats) who they know are stupid. They don't care about the stupid democrat, they only use them. Suck them in with free phones and food stamps. In reality, the don't care if they live or die. But, like I said, they are stupid democrats, lazy too!

Michael Jackson was a crackpot and attracted to children. Who cares what color he was? He was a nut, just like you! Quit babbling, you appear to be really bizarre!

Obama's speach could be aptly labeled, In Defense of Fascism.

He has forsaken Abe's proclaimimg "...government of the people, by the people, for the people..." and replaced it

by Mussolini's dictum "The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative."

Yes, the ungrateful tommy played the RACE CARD on his own grandmother, all for self-agrandisment and political gain.

His tactic worked, though, because of a symbiotic media, with Chris Mathews he had "a THRILL going up hid lrg. saying



In fact, he was able to play the RACE CARD on Bill Clinton with great success.

<quoted text>If you are trying to suggest that our economy is worse now than under Bush, I've got some shares in Yugo stock to sell you - cheap.
No thanks. Got screwed when Obama took the value of GM stock away from shareholders and gave it to the unions.

And yes, for everybody who DIDN'T buy more house than they could afford under Clinton, and got bailed out under Obama, the economy is absolutely worse now than under Bush. Almost every single thing, except housing, is more expensive, and incomes have fallen. It would take a filthy dirty politician to try to spin that into a positive (Oh, wait, one did).

What I was pointing out mainly was that the value you provided for unemployment was the U-3 value, which doesn't take into account discouraged workers, or workers who are working part time for economic reasons (want to work full time but can't find full-time work or hours were cut), two categories that EXPLODED under Obama's "recovery".

Pretty much what I thought. "I'll help you - to a point, then you're on your own."

Like I said. You and personal responsibility aren't friends. Read the give a fish, teach to fish saying.... then read it again. Yes, we "throw them out" after a time, but not until they have a plan, and we help them with that. We work with the local crisis/mental health center and have their full support. It might not seem like much to you, since I'm not throwing five figures of cash at every problem that comes down the pike, but it's a pretty big deal to those we help... people who've had their whole lives turned upside-down and fall through society's cracks (don't qualify for government help) for one reason or other. We're one of about fifty families who take in battered women, and one of less than twenty who'll take their kids too. We make a huge difference in these peoples' lives, for the cost of a couple spare bedrooms and a little food.

[QUOTE] Sickening. I'm quite certain I've done more than my share to help others and I have given when I didn't have a whole lot to give. You'd rather kick people while they're down and make sure they stay on the street. How much have I given of myself out of my comfort zone?
Comfort zone? What? Did you break a nail or something? You're talking to someone who has had to eat off the land or out of dumpsters... and you want to talk about comfort zones...
More than you'll know. I'm fortunate to have what I have and I've worked hard for it. I also know that I had a great family who helped me and friends who were willing to lend a couch if I needed one from time to time. Now that I've achieved a relative level of success, I make damn sure to pay it forward. That's what people should do. Buying groceries for someone who can't afford them or volunteering to watch a woman's child while she goes to night classes isn't giving them perks - it's helping them become better, more successful people. I don't expect you to understand that concept. You're too worried about yourself.
Well that's the thing. You might think so, but I'm not, at least not too much. Since I've had to scrounge for a lot of my life, I'm kinda "not unused" to it, so even a little bit of "not having to scrounge" is a great gift to me and I share my bounty. Always have... Always will... You can't take it with you, you know.
