I hope he has a nice time.
In Indonesia and College, I'm sure he was called names just as bad. That's what blacks have to deal with in a world filled with white racist.

All kinds of folks get called names "just as bad". Your skin is no better than anyone else's when it comes to that.

Coalman also gets called names, but there is grudging respect because he has done a decent job.

Barry people resent because the guy doesn't know what he's doing and the white guilt crowd kept telling us how the jive ass was the best president ever.

End the aid to Israel too, they don't deserve our money if they keep screwing around.$20 bet they are going to strike Syria and turn the whole region into a Custer fk.

Agree. The POTUS looks like a fool regarding this crisis. If you were going to do something, f'ing do it. Nothing like giving Syria a peek at your four ace, king high poker hand. I am not condoning use of chemical warfare, but enough. Wuss, either do something or STFU.

All of our Presidents have talked smack to despot leaders of other countries. We're constantly telling other sovereign nations to do what we want or else. Remember Bush 1 was called a wimp in the media for talking tough about Saddam Hussein? Then he finally sent in our military during Desert Shield. By the way, where is our money that those billionaires in Kuwait owes the tax papers? I haven't heard one politician ask that question!

Saddam remained in power and continued his oppression. That's until Bush Jr. allowed his inner circle of oil barrens convince stupid Americans that Scud missiles were heading to Los Angeles. Being the gullible beer drinking and hot dog eating dummies that' most' Americans are, they didn't have enough sense to find out that the Scud missile has an effective range of 270 km or 440 miles. His missiles wouldn't even make it pass Israel, but Americans weren't told that by our nightly bubble headed blonde news anchors.

Obama is over his head on Syria, and running his yap like a cowboy got him backed in a corner. He needs to stop trying to seem tough.

Russia, Syria's most powerful patron, would block any United Nations Security Council resolution against Syria. After the British Parliament rejected Prime Minister David Cameron's call for military action last week, it became clear to Obama that a groundswell of international was not coming.

He's trying to save face.

"Yet, while I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization, I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective."

However, if this POTUS is called anything the race card is played. I don't dislike Oblamo for his skin color. I dislike Oblamo due to his failed policies, dismal results and failure to lead.
Now if that is the new definition of racist then I am a racist.
Oh, really! Well you must have been isolated while growing up in America.

Anyways, I think there's actually a bunch of derogatory terms for Caucasians and white folks in general, but they're all in languages I'm not familiar with.

While race has a lot to do with poverty in America, since the crash in 2008 more Americans are experiencing poverty levels with loss of decent paying manufacturing jobs, construction industry jobs, some lay-offs for teachers in our schools.

The subtext of his argument: Class may be the new race.

It's not that all battles for racial equality have been won -- they haven't -- or that we live in a post-racial society. But, in some remarkable and troubling ways, class has become an increasingly significant barrier to equality in modern America. The gap between rich and poor has been growing in the United States since the late 1970s, and our level of income inequality, one proxy measure for that gap, is now on par with many sub-Saharan African countries.

Between December 2007 (when the recession officially began) and last month, more than 8 million Americans have lost their jobs, according to the government. Of those job losses, 700,000 stem from layoffs at just 25 companies, according to 24/7 Wall Street's analysis of data from employment consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

The financial services sector is another culprit. The financial meltdown forced some banks to close (Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns) and others to be acquired (Merrill Lynch, Washington Mutual), leaving hundreds of bankers, brokers and assistants without jobs.

Companies that turn commodities into finished products, such as Alcoa, DuPont and Dow Chemical, have felt the pressure of that shrinking spending. Each have been squeezed as prices for their end products fell by more than the underlying prices of raw materials, such as metals and chemicals.

Certain industries figure prominently on this list of layoff kings. The auto industry, for example, is estimated to have cut nearly 200,000 jobs in the U.S. since 2006. The industry's union, the United Auto Workers, has been able to preserve blue collar jobs in the industry for decades, but the recession and foreign competition have proven too formidable for the union to fight against.

Drugmakers have been facing another set of issues. Many have blockbuster drugs that either lost patent protection or will soon, opening the door for cheaper, copycat generics. The research and development efforts at the big pharmaceutical firms have largely been unable to create a new pipeline of billion-dollar drugs to replace those sales, resulting in cuts in both sales and R&D workers.

Sorry I have taken so long to answer an answer to one of my posts many posts back but believe It or not I have other things to do also. Anywho here it goes.
I realize socialism is not the goal of the one worlders and I have never believed it was. Socialism is a tool, not a goal. This is the reason one worlders financially backed Hitler's Nazi Germany and Stalin's Communist SU in the old days.
Now we have people bankrolling and supplying both sides in the Syrian Civil War. Not only makes money for the armourialists but also keeps the world in general and the middle east in particular in turmoil.
Obombo doesn't have to have nads against Syria. All he needs to do and does is listen and obey his superiors, the powers behind the DC throne.
Have a great day,
sincerely,

Not ONE American life is worth losing over Syria. We should stay out of it both sides hate the U S therefore let them kill each other and have God or Allah sort them out. It was a smart move by Obama to dump that decision on Congress. It will be interesting to see who is in the pocket of the zionist lobby since their precious Israel is right down the road from Syria. Which would be the only reason for the parasites in Congress sending the kids of the poor and the middle class to that hellhole where they would never send their own pecious little brats. Just like Nam. How many of those TV preachers who are strong supporters of Israel ever served in the military? NONE.!

If you cared to look, there are HR stories out there of trying to get people to come back to work without success once they got a taste of the benefits (wouldn't be worth it after the cost of gasoline). Moreover, you have an irritating habit of copying and pasting information from who knows where without a date. Many of those companies have hired. And the people who had the hardest time finding jobs, the older workers, often did not seem to qualify for any food assistance because they were single and didn't have dependents - or so they were told by the social workers.
