At this point you can't continue to honestly misunderstand my question. Obviously you are trying to run from it.
That's fine. I understand.
LOL!
I have run from nothing and have answered your question. I don't assume you are black. I don't know if you are black or not. And I really don't give a f**k if you are or aren't.

Is that clear enough for you, Forrest???

Hello. Can you here me now?
You just named 3 phony scandals that have been thoroughly investigated and resolved.

Like I said - when we criticized Bush, it was for things he actually did - not phony, made-up "scandals."

Fast & Furious was NOT thoroughly investigated. Obama did use executive privilege to block the release of ALL emails and communications regarding it, and it has NOT been released as of yet. All of those associtaed with Benghazi have been silenced and relocated and not allowed to be questioned, including changing their names to hide their identity. And please show were the IRS scandal has been "investigated". Hell....show were ANY of them have been investigated.

?Would that be anything like you running and hiding from these questions?

How will any new gun control measures have any effect on criminals who obtain their guns via illegal means now and will continue to obtain their guns illegally regardless of any new measures? How does gun control impact anyone but law abiding citizens?

How will state sponsored racism do anything to remedy racism? Is replacing the current form of racism with a new form of racist that penalizes the successful the answer?

How does welfare and liberal give-away programs do ANYTHING to help people become successful? Teaching people that they can make a living working the system instead of working a job is the answer?

Really? You honestly believe this hogwash?

Amazing.

Fast and Furious was thoroughly investigated and it was revealed that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. It was a screw-up and those involved were disciplined.

Benghazi was thoroughly investigated and it was revealed that the administration did everything possible to keep our diplomatic personnel safe within the constraints of GOP foreign service budget cuts.

The IRS "scandal" was thoroughly investigated and it was revealed that both conservative and liberal groups were given special scrutiny. Those employees taking short-cuts in their investigations of these so-called non-profit groups were disciplined.

You believe a pile of rightwing propaganda and bullshit. It's a function of your visceral hatred of the President and your willingness to believe anything and everything bad, no matter how irrational, about him.

The truth about the Fast and Furious scandal

A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust.

Mitch McConnell Realizes IRS Scandal Is Over

Mitch McConnell delivered a speech today at the American Enterprise Institute to officially signal that the IRS scandal has entered its post-fact phase. When the IRS first revealed that its Cincinnati office had attempted to enforce its nonprofit laws using a search function that disproportionately impacted conservatives, Republicans were certain it must have come from the White House. They were going to follow the facts.

But all of the facts point in the same direction, which is that the Obama administration had nothing to do with it at all. That was the conclusion of the agency’s inspector-general report, as well as the House Oversight Committee’s own interviews, which the Republican majority tried to suppress and which (when the Democrats released them) showed the operation was an independent, well-intentioned effort to enforce the law led by an IRS official who happens to be a conservative Republican.

From the House Republicans own report...

In addition, the House Armed Services Committee conducted a review of air assets available to respond to Benghazi. No U.S. government element refused or denied requests for emergency assistance during the crisis. The evidence also does not show there were armed air assets above Benghazi at any time or that any such assets were called off from assisting U.S. personnel on the ground. According to witness testimony, the security officials on the ground did use laser sights, but they did so as an escalatory demonstration of force in an effort to deter some attackers. They were not lasing targets for air assets.

The House Armed Services Committee also examined the question of whether the Defense Department failed to deploy assets to Benghazi because it believed the attack was over after the first phase. The progress report finds that officials at the Defense Department were monitoring the situation throughout and kept the forces that were initially deployed flowing into the region. No evidence has been provided to suggest these officials refused to deploy resources because they thought the situation had been sufficiently resolved.

Congress interviewing "dozens" of Benghazi witnesses

In recent weeks, members of the House and Senate and their staffers have held two classified hearings on the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya; conducted more than 25 hours of formal, transcribed interviews with witnesses; and spoken informally with several dozen additional witnesses, including some who are being called "whistleblowers."

I believe documented, objective facts, not paranoid conspiracy theories.

You're free to believe the conspiracy theories, just don't expect those of us living in the reality-based universe to go along with it.

I believe the federal response to both the BP spill and Texas wildfires was appropriate. The only reason there's controversy about either case is because the right demands more no matter what this President does.
So, no - there was no racism in the federal response to either disaster. There's not even a case to be made that there was. Obama's FEMA has been responsive and effective, just like FEMA under Clinton and dramatically unlike FEMA under Bush.
It's a result of philosophical differences. Republicans disdain government and want to "drown it in a bathtub," so when they're in charge the government is feeble and ineffective, leaving citizens without help when they need it. Democrats believe the government has a vital role to play in the success of our nation, so when they're in charge, government agencies are more responsive and effective to the nation's needs.
Texas did not get a disaster declaration even tho the scope of the problem was beyond 0 normal measure where such a declaration is given. But you say no problem, just people dissing Obama. And the system was responsive in your opinion.

This is going no where, you are throwing out excuses instead of answering the question.

More of an observation with my opinion. You don't believe that we have lost generations of people who prefer to take than to contribute?

Do you disagree that if the trends of welfare continues that the system will collapse under the strain when more is paid out than is collected?

That isn't anywhere close to happening, dumbazz.

PS: the TRENDS of percentage paid out in welfare ARE GOING DOWN.

Wipe your chin, dear.

I'd bet you but then we know your word is worthless.

That's simply not true. Obama certainly did sign a disaster declaration for Texas.

And Texas received federal aid along, even before the disaster declaration. It's just that Rick Perry wanted more.

These aren't excuses - these are the facts of history. I'm not sure why you don't want to acknowledge them, but don't accuse me of not answering questions when I have.

No, I don't believe that. There is certainly abuse within the welfare system, but it does more good by far.

And high usage right now isn't a trend. It is the response to the recession. Whenever the economy tanks and people lose jobs, more families qualify for federal benefits automatically. And after a peak in 2010, US spending on welfare benefits has declined. I don't see any evidence that we're anywhere near paying out more than is collected.
