Trent Lott, Ronald Reagan and Republican Racism

Southern Strategy: The race question has haunted Reagan and the GOP for decades
The same could be said, of course, about such Republican heroes as, Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon or George Bush the elder, all of whom used coded racial messages to lure disaffected blue collar and Southern white voters away from the Democrats. Yet it's with Reagan, who set a standard for exploiting white anger and resentment rarely seen since George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door, that the Republican's selective memory about its race-baiting habit really stands out.

No tears for Reagan
June 8, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/558r6l
Excuse me if I don’t shed any tears over the passing of former President Ronald Reagan. While the news of the 40th president’s death brought on a flood of sentimentality over the nation’s media this past weekend, I could not help but recall what the Reagan presidency really meant for Black Americans. Similar to what occurred upon the death of Richard Nixon, amnesia has set upon journalists as they recall Reagan’s era; choosing to indulge in idol worship rather than serious reflection on the former president’s policies.

Ronald Reagan: The Great White Redeemer
http://tinyurl.com/6jljhm / June 10 2004
Only 12 years elapsed between the glorious military victory over the Confederate Slave States in 1865 and the definitive defeat of Reconstruction in 1877. In many important respects, the Reconstruction period was even briefer than that. By 1870, when the last of the southern states ratified the 15th Amendment to the Constitution, Tennessee had already rejected biracial democracy and installed an all-white “Redeemer” government.“Redemption” then swept through Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Reagan's heart of darkness
June 9, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/28ytj
PRESIDENT Bush proclaimed: "Ronald Reagan believed that God takes the side of justice and that America has a special calling to oppose tyranny and defend freedom." In the first three days of news reports on the death of the former president, not a single major American newspaper, television station, or politician has dared to exhume this counterpoint to the Reagan's legacy: "Immoral, evil, and totally un-Christian."

Reagan, White As Snow
http://tinyurl.com/6lujee
Last week, as we’ve heard, the Republican presidential candidates praised the name and heritage of Ronald Reagan 40 times during the televised Show and Tell at the Reagan Presidential Library. That none of them mentioned Reagan’s legacy of white supremacy and support for apartheid is a little like invoking Jefferson Davis and not mentioning treason or slavery. Actually, a lot like it.
Ronald Reagan was a white supremacist to his very core, and left enough traces over his lengthy political career so that it’s evident for anyone who cares to look—which apparently few do.
Domestically, he opposed every legislative remedy for African Americans, betraying a meanness of spirit and an open racism. As Sidney Blumenthal wrote in The Guardian in 2003:/ http://www.tompaine.com/articles/2007/05/08/r...

Sorry, but you can't base your argument on doctrines of faith. Jesus was born CENTUREIS after the time those Old Testament books were written. So he could not have spoken those words in Levititcus.
Also, the OLd Testament was written by men. NOt by God. So, there's no evidence even that God really spoke on homosexuality. And Jesus, as far as the New Testament is concerned, doesn't speak on this either.
Yea, if you believe Jesus was just a man, then yea, he was born centuries later. BUT JESUS IS NOT WAS NOT JUST A MAN...SO HE HAS ALWAYS EXISTED! SO..WAY BACK in the old testament Gen 1:26 the "US" id the Father Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. Conclusion, when GOD spoke, Jesus is speaking.

I was brought up with the Bible thumped against my head for years and I do not recall Jesus ever mentioning gayness.
He didn't unless my memory badly fails me. Mama was a Bible School teacher. I used to read the Bible extensively. I recall denunciations of gayness in the writings of Paul and Leviticus, but not in the gospels. Nor do I recall prophets like Isaiah or Amos denouncing homoxesuals. But they do denounce INJUSTICE, especially injustice to the poor..
That's why I see no excuse for those ministers who are engaging in anti-gay crusades, but not fighting for social justice. I think them to be charlatans and fools.

It is just an OPINION of yours--call it a doctrine of faith if you will--that jesus was god. I doubt that you can prove it. Meely saying it is not proof. And I'm not interested in debating ideas which you hold simply on grounds of "faith."
If Jesus existed, then we have no reason I can think of to regard him as any less or more than a man.

Possibly he meant that god is a creation of the human imagination, or on some interpretations, a product of human fear. It's silly to ask for an individual name of the singular person who created god in that sense.

When we say a man made a car, we can tell what man.If we say man made a house we say a man build a house we can say what man. When we say god is man made we should supply a name of the creator. We say who create man and the world. Having an opinion is one thing but to say God is man made is just an opinion. There are many levels of understanding. A child in school do not have wisdom of their parents. The child have books but the parents have the experience that are written in books. Some people will not believe there is a God until they have an experience. Their experience did not make God real, He was a already real. God just open up their understanding. Then they can relate to what people been saying all along.

Remember it was you who said God was man made. Now you are saying God exist before the written record. It was God who created the man who he gave him the ability to write the record. God gave man charge of this earth and everything man has done on this earth comes from the material already here.

1 John 2:22
Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

You're not terribly well informed if you don't know that there are thinkers who hold that it is man who made god in his own image; that even the character attributed to god in human religions resemble the characteristics of the people themsleves.
Those thinkers would deem it silly if you asked the name of some specific individual man, especially as they are taling about the activity of the human species, or certain specific human cultures and civilizations.
If they say Zeus or Apollo is the creation fo the Greek mind, the Greek imagination, or that Yahweh is the creation of the Hebrew mind or culture, it would be kind of silly to ask for an individual name,

The Obama You Don't Know:

Among the victims interviews, poor blacks who help expose "the Obama You Don't Know".

Chapter 4: For the slumlord's defense, Barack Obama, Esq.

It was a frigid January and the slumlord who put his tenants on the street without going through the required eviction process got off with a $50 fine. His lawyer went on to be elected president of the United States.

Chapter 5: Obama's toughest critics on the Left

Long before he ran for president, radical critics accused Obama of selling out Chicago's poor to the Daley political machine.

Chapter 6: The poor people Obama left behind

Altgeld Gardens housing advocate Hazel Johnson welcomed the young Obama into her kitchen. Then she never heard from him again after he won his first election.

Chapter 7: The myth of Obama as state senate reformer

When the real reformers asked for his help, State Sen. Barack Obama was nowhere to be found.

Chapter 8: Obama's state pension fund scheme

It worked for Rev. Jesse Jackson against the Fortune 500, so State Sen. Barack Obama used it to get millions for his friends from Illinois' biggest public employee pension funds.

Chapter 9: Obama's Arab-American network

Syrian emigrant Tony Rezko had lots of Arab-American friends in the Chicago business community who shared his enthusiasm for Barack Obama.

State Representative Obama was able to pressure state groups to funnel pension money to big donors (such as major Obama bundler John Rogers, Jr.-- who, after racking up very poor returns for years was eventually fired -- and America wonders why Illinois and its pensioners are in a major-league fiscal mess).

"Beyond the spin and polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer, but a classic Chicago machine pol."

More

Chapter 1: A childhood of privilege, not hardship

Michelle Obama says "Barack and I were both raised by families who didn't have much in the way of money or possessions." In fact, for much of his life, Barack Obama has enjoyed privileges and opportunities denied to most Americans.

Chapter 2: Myth of the 'rock star' professor

Though initially popular as a University of Chicago Law School adjunct lecturer, he was not ranking among the top professors, according to student evaluations.

Why not ask for a name when a person say God is made made. Sure there have to be a reference. I can say God created mankind and can refer to him. History is written by people you can refer to. When i hear people say there is no god or God is made by man, I know they have no experience in spiritual encounter. Those people that have different religion write about spiritual encounters. When men try to bring down God to the same level of understanding as they have, he is no long God. Some people are not in tune with the spiritual, have to have an experience to convince them of a reality of God. Even science that has rejected things written in the bible have change their outlook when they make a physical discovery that the bible spoke of. Who know he mind of God that they may instruct him.
