<quoted text>Black Americans have not advanced because of the policies of the libs that want to keep them in poverty so that they will get their vote.

Liberals don’t talk in terms of the actual consequences of their policies, when it is so much more pleasant to think in terms of wonderful goals and lofty rhetoric.

"Income inequality has long been one of the liberals’ favorite issues. So there is nothing surprising about its being pushed hard this election year. If nothing else, it is a much-needed distraction from the disasters of Obamacare and the various IRS, Benghazi, and other Obama-administration scandals.

Like so many other favorite liberal issues, income inequality is seldom discussed in terms of the actual consequences of liberal policies. When you turn from eloquent rhetoric to hard facts, the hardest of those facts is that income inequality has actually increased during five years of Barack Obama’s leftist policies.

When you make it unnecessary for many people to work, fewer people work. Unprecedented numbers of Americans are on the food-stamp program. Unprecedented numbers are also living off government “disability” payments.

There is a sweeping array of other government subsidies that together allow many people to receive greater benefits than they could earn by working at low-skilled jobs. Is it surprising that the labor-force participation rate is lower than it has been in decades?

In short, when people don’t have to earn incomes, they are less likely to earn incomes — or, at least, to earn incomes in legal & visible ways that could threaten their government benefits.

Most of the households in the bottom 20% of income earners have nobody working. There are more heads of household working full-time and year-round in the top 5% than in the bottom 20%.

What this means statistically is that liberals can throw around numbers on how many people are living in “poverty” defined in terms of income received not in terms of goods & services provided by the government.

Most Americans living in “poverty” have AC, a car, and other amenities including more living space than the average person in Europe — not the average poor person in Europe, the average person."

what does that have to do with the numerous threats and acts of violence in the history of this issue?

the confrontation did not come from the federal gov't side...proven fact.

nothing to see here, nothing....

"Media Matters for America engaged in a sustained pro-Obama, anti-Romney campaign in the month before the 2012 presidential election according to a report by Garth Kant published at World Net Daily on Wednesday.

Media Matters is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that is supposed to avoid making statements for or against political candidates. The IRS recently revoked the tax-exempt status for the conservative Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty for posting anti-Hillary Clinton and John Kerry statements to its Web site"

Actually it was brilliant of the parents and students to be upset about Michelle Obama coming to speak at the graduation ceremony.

Graduation is about the kids, it is the end of all the years and work they put into their education and it is to be about them. Families put a lot of time and often money in putting together celebrations for their graduate and family members often come from far away to attend the graduation. Why should the senior be overshadowed by the first lady and their seating be limited so her people can fill the seats just to make sure everything is good for her protection and her focus when it should be that families and those celebrating the kids accomplishment that fill the seats....the people there for the graduates! Graduation should be about the kids...not the speaker that is chosen by the school board without any choice on the parent or the graduates part.
Due to the anniversary issue it was a political thing to ask her to come speak because of the anniversary and it would have made it a political ceremony and NOT a graduation like it was suppose to be.
What was worse was because of the first lady speaking they were making all the schools combine their ceremony (like sitting through just ONE high school's graduation ceremony isn't sometimes quit long enough), which was not fair to any of the graduates from any of the schools. The focus was not the graduates it was the first lady and why she was chosen to speak which was the anniversary of something that was not about the graduates but about something that happened long before any of them were even thought of.
The way it has turned out is the way it should have been from the start. Now the first lady can speak about the anniversary and all her people can fill as many seats as they need without taking away from the graduates or their families. She can make her political points and MSNBC call show every moment of it like they would before only now she can make her points and have her talking points and do her thing and it be covered about the anniversary and not at the expense of the celebration of the graduates and their accomplishment.

Looks like Kansas was pretty smart actually and have the ability to let the first lady celebrate and speak about the anniversary while at the same time give the seniors of that city the celebration and recognition they deserve and allow all the family that can be there and want to see their big moment to all be there.

Both events can occur and be respectful to all involved, the way it should be.
Sorry you are to dumb to realize it!

If you weren't so caught up in being so political and partial on the deal you would realize the first lady is being given her spotlight and so are the kids and it isn't taking anything away from the first lady at all.
