No, I did not like the results of the election for president in 2012. That is correct.

It would be more effective perhaps if the law stated that your Nikes and Flat-Screen would be taken away.....
If it was gangs of cowardly young white teenagers targeting elderly black people to Knockout there would be outraged blacks rioting in our cities from coast to coast. They'd burn down half the nation in righteous indignation...O'bunglebrains would declare Martial Law and disarm every white household in the country.

Now I'm "sucking up government benefits"? Seriously?
Either you're too young to be thinking about retirement and all the money the government has taken from you over your working lifetime or you're just going to tell them to keep it when it's your turn.
But what you're saying is wait until I'm 65 and THEN be dependent on handouts?
What difference does three years make when I don't even need to work full-time until I'm 65?
What's really the problem here, Galt? Need to talk about it?
your SS would be significantly higher if you worked till your full retirement age...and the prospect of severe inflation is real...

It'll never happen. Sharpton has a history of promoting this kind of racial hatred against whites. He has ties with the Black Panthers.

Minnesota senator Al Franken, a Democrat, opens the door to a delay of the Obamacare individual mandate in an interview with Minnesota Public Radio.
The Washington Post reports:
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren't fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
"I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but let’s hope that doesn't happen," Franken told MPR.
Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.
I thought it was just another SNL joke when Al said he was going to run for office but now I suspect he may be one of the few men at the Capitol with a conscience. Granted, it may be only a small one but, hopefully, it will keep growing.

Wikipedia: Coon song

Quote:
Coon songs were a genre of music that presented a racist and stereotyped image of Blacks. They were popular in the United States and around the English-speaking world from 1880[1] to 1920.

Characteristics:
Coon songs almost always aimed to be funny and incorporated the syncopated rhythms of ragtime music.[3][14] Coon songs' defining characteristic, however, was their caricature of African Americans. In keeping with the older minstrel image of Blacks, coon songs often featured "watermelon- and chicken-loving rural buffoon[s]."[15] However, "blacks began to appear as not only ignorant and indolent, but also devoid of honesty or personal honor, given to drunkenness and gambling, utterly without ambition, sensuous, libidinous, even lascivious."[15] Blacks were portrayed as making money through gambling, theft, and hustling, rather than working to earn a living,[15] as in the Nathan Bivins song "Gimme Ma Money":

Last night I did go to a big Crap game,

How dem coons did gamble wuz a sin and a shame...
I'm gambling for my Sadie,
Cause she's my lady,

I'm a hustling coon,... dat's just what I am.

These jews have been pimping blacks the whole damn time.... Todays "so called" "Hip-hop music"(owned and controlled by JEWS) is modern day "Coon music". They turned "nïggërs" into "nïggàz"... and "coons" to "goons". Too many damn SELLOUTS these days....

If anyone's interested. I agree with almost everything the columnist wrote.
Really Carol? You're for raising the minimum wage? Raising taxes on the wealthy? Strengthen unions? rein in the ability of the wealthy to pour vast amounts of money into elections? Are you turning into a progressive? I doubt it, I would guess that you're demonstrating your limited reading comprehension.

Franken is now joining a growing number of Senate Democrats to delay the mandate only because they are more concerned about losing their warm seats in Congress than the effects of this law on the rest of us.

It certainly wasn't a concern before. Franken, like all Democrats, didn't know - nor did they care - how this law was going to affect the rest of us and passed it anyway.

Make no mistake. Franken does nothing out of conscience. It's always about party loyalty and personal gain.

The Democrats would have already come to the table to reason out changes in the law with bipartisan agreement and solutions this time otherwise.

What are they doing instead? Obama and his minions are digging in their heels even more and the rest are freaking out - not because the rest of us are freaking out - but because they see their precious warm and cushy seats being snatched out from under them next year.

Sad, but true.

The latest U.S. Census data says many New Yorkers are living in poverty...and the number of city residents living below the poverty level is on the rise.
http://www.ny1.com/content/news/189052/census...
Aren't most New Yorkers staunch Democrats? Led by Democrats? And support Obama's policies?
Sure Carol, NYC hasn't had a Democratic mayor since David Dinkins, 20 years ago. Before you go picking on NYC let's take a look at other metropolitan areas with even higher poverty levels.
Brownsville Harlingen, Texas ; Poverty rate: 36.3 percent
McAllen Edinburg-Mission, Texas; Poverty rate: 33.4 percent
Tallahassee, Florida; Poverty rate: 25.7 percent
Pine Bluff Arkansas; Poverty rate: 24.4%
Fort Smith Arkansas-Oklahoma; Poverty rate 22.6%
Aren't all these areas in red states run by Republicans? Let's look at some other cities.
Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Massachusetts; Poverty rate 10.07%
San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont California; Poverty rate 11.9%
Bridgeport-Norwalk- Stamford Connecticut; Poverty rate 8.9%
Aren't these blue areas run by Democrats?
If you look at individual states you'll see that some of the poorest areas are in red states like Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

I agree with #1. Don't agree with #2 and closing private schools unless, perhaps, public schools are free of PC poisoning and union dominance. Agree with #3 within reason based on the rising costs of living. Don't agree with #4. Throwing more money at a problem doesn't fix the problem, something we never seem to learn. Tax reform is the only fix. Agree with #5,#6 and #7.

Why I said I agree with almost everything in the article.
