There is far too much permisiveness in parenting nowadays. On that, we can definitely agree. But the number of black on black crimes in inner cities alone is staggering. And the desperation of black men to commit crimes is precisely because of the oppression being imposed on them in the guise of victimization for political advantage.
The breakdown of the family structure significantly contributes to the problems for many blacks. Black leaders remain too silent instead of addressing it directly.
There is no black leaders! The problem with black people is as a race/culture, were what I call piece ofthe ppie type people. We've been starved for so long that we'll accept crumbs & call it progress. Happy with the progress of the few as representation of the many. Somewhere along the line we've developed a selfish mentality. Not worried about anything at all. As long as the individual is doing good, that's how they view the culture. There's no such thing as unity anymore & this is not just a black thing, it's an American thing & it's sickening! Lets not fool ourselves tho. It'll take a compassionate white person to speak to the crowd that turns a def ear to the needs of the black community!

Treason by Public Officials

(TO ALL WHO READ THIS: Submit this page URL to all your Congressional Candidates running for office in 2006.)

Based upon the following research and upon researching the plethora of laws on the books today, it is obvious that many current laws and in some cases, the laws they were based on are blatantly unconstitutional. I make no interpretations myself but let the founding documents speak for themselves with highlighting and underlining done for the sake of clarity.

The following excerpts from founding documents will clearly show:

1. The Constitution of the United States is the "Supreme Law of the Land" and any law that strays outside the boundaries enumerated in it are undeniably unconstitutional.

2. The undisputable fact that acts passed by Congress or by State legislatures which do not conform to the Constitution of the United States have been found by the Supreme Court to be "null and void and have no effect".

3. The enactment of unconstitutional laws by legislators clearly violated their Oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States".

4. The violation of this Oath by an elected official/public officer must therefore be construed as a "Treasonable Act." http://www.barefootsworld.net/treason_by_publ...

<quoted text>"All major murder-suicide studies in the United States completed since 1950 have
shown that firearms are by far the most common method of committing homicide,
with the offender choosing the firearm for suicide as well.4 Estimates range from
firearms being used in 80 percent to 90 percent of cases, but many other weapons,
including aircraft, have been used."
What about the other 10 percent? I guess that they don't matter.
So since we can't do anything about all methods of suicide we shouldn't have concerns about what causes 80-90% of them?
You're an idiot!

Happy Easter anyway, Tenzing.
Sure Carol, that's why we call it "Easter" which is derived from the goddess Eostre. It was originally the celebration of the Vernal Equinox and to the ancient Europeans was every bit as religious as the Christian celebration.
You're an idiot Carol.

Bush Sought 'Way' To Invade Iraq?

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying 'Go find me a way to do this,'" says O'Neill. "For me, the notion of pre-emption, that the U.S. has the unilateral right to do whatever we decide to do, is a really huge leap."

And that came up at this first meeting, says O'Neill, who adds that the discussion of Iraq continued at the next National Security Council meeting two days later.

He got briefing materials under this cover sheet. "There are memos. One of them marked, secret, says,'Plan for post-Saddam Iraq,'" adds Suskind, who says that they discussed an occupation of Iraq in January and February of 2001.

Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday on what they called some of the toughest gun laws in the country that were proposed after the December mass shooting in the state, including a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead.

The proposal includes new registration requirements for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets, something of a disappointment for some family members of Newtown victims who wanted an outright ban on the possession of all high-capacity magazines and traveled to the state Capitol on Monday to ask lawmakers for it.

The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, creates a new "ammunition eligibility certificate," imposes immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales, and extends the state's assault weapons ban to 100 new types of firearms and requires that a weapon have only one of several features in order to be banned.

The newly banned weapons could no longer be bought or sold in Connecticut, and those legally owned already would have to be registered with the state, just like the high-capacity magazines.

Why the Democratic Party is backing Bush’s war drive vs. Iraq

By Patrick Martin
11 October 2002

The Democratic Party is moving to provide a comfortable margin of votes to pass resolutions in the House of Representatives and the Senate authorizing an imminent US invasion of Iraq. The House voted Thursday to give Bush the power to wage war, a week after an agreement between Bush and House Democratic leader Richard Gephardt on the language of the resolution.

A series of top Senate Democrats have endorsed the resolution, including Majority Whip Harry Reid, Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Joseph Biden, and John Kerry of Massachusetts, a prospective presidential candidate and one-time leader of veterans’ protests against the Vietnam War. It is expected that less than a quarter of the Senate will vote against a resolution to authorize Bush to launch a unilateral war of aggression.

...

Why the Democrats endorse war

Apologists for the congressional Democratic leadership claim that quick passage of a war resolution will allow the party turn its election campaign back to discussion of domestic economic and social issues and thus win the November 5 vote.

Spoken like a true ignoramus. First of all, moron, guns do not "cause" them. MENTAL CONDITIONS DO! Additionally, if you banned all guns, people would simply find other ways so you are really just full of shit, as usual.

Furthermore, they voted yes because Bush told them he needed the OK to force Iraq into inspections and would only be used as a last resort.

Now that it hasn't worked, y'all start the finger pointing & blaming the president. Politics are a persons ideology. The presidents job is to give the world his ideology giving the fact he was elected twice by the dominate majority. Meaning you only see the glass half full because his ideology doesn't match yours, but you forget YOU'RE THE MINORITY ON THIS ONE! All republicans have done is obstructed the presidents every move & have publicly stated,"the will do whatever it takes to make him a 1 term president, but you overlook that because it fits your ideology. We wouldn't have had the sequester cuts if he refused to compromise. Keep pointing fingers, the clocks a ticking closer & closer to 2014!
