Lots of people make bad statements. They both apologized.

One statement does not make a person racist. If you have more evidence of either acting as racist,let me know.

Certainly the statements made by Biden & Reid are not in any way equal to that of your buddy Bundy. And to cite Biden & Reid as an excuse for you defend your racist buddies that post here is pathetic.

<quoted text>ummm...the new madrid fault doesn't exist? really? i think you might want to check your facts on that one, dear.
here's a fun page...certainly not exhaustive of the data available.
When you can point to a line on a map and call it a 'fault,' let me know.

https://www.dnr.mo.gov/pubs/pub2465.pdf

"Earthquakes and seismic zones
A seismic zone is an area with multiple faults that is subject to frequent earthquakes.
Earthquakes occur when pressure builds up on both sides of a fault. When the fault sides slip against one another, they cause a sudden release of energy, or earthquake. Earthquake
locations are marked by the epicenter, the point on the earth's surface vertically above the
movement.

The NMSZ is 125 miles long and contains multiple faults that extend from Marked
Tree, Arkansas, to Cairo, Illinois. The faults are not visible at the surface, but are
buried deeply below thick layers of floodplain sediments deposited by the Mississippi and other rivers. Faults that are not visible at the surface are harder to study, making it difficult to understand the true nature of faults in the NMSZ."

Oooooh, the evil Koch brothers, lions and tigers and bears, oh my.
WORK AT KOCH
Koch companies have a presence in about 60 countries and employ more than 100,000 people worldwide, with about 60,000 of those in the U.S. Whatever your field of expertise, you'll find challenging opportunities exist across 12 different industries, in small towns and big cities in almost every state in the nation.
Want to join us? We're always seeking qualified candidates.
Maybe a shiftless, lazy slacker like you could even get a job with them.
No ,because Koch Corporate executives earn over 1000-1 more salary and benefits than the average Koch employee and the corporate system is rigged against any kind of upward advancement from the bottom. The 1% has burned all the ladders of company higher socio-economic mobility . What is different now from the 19th century Gilded Age of single Corporate robber baron moguls like Carnegie , Ford, and Vanderbilt? The centralization of wealth is now being rigidly concentrated in a few dynastic 'families ', the Waltons(Walmart), Koch Brothers, Ray Kroc(McDonald's , etc.

"Thomas Piketty is a French economist. His book provides a detailed map of inequalities in wealth and income around the world and over time. It finds that in many developed countries the top 10 per cent, and even more worryingly the top 1 per cent, control an increasing proportion of their country's wealth. These trends have been asserted before. What is definitive about Piketty's work is the extraordinary wealth of evidence he employs to prove them.

Piketty isn't interested in trends over a mere decade. Instead, he uses data spanning more than three centuries to show that after 50 years of declining inequality, wealth inequality has returned to the levels of the Gilded Age of the early 1900s. Downton Abbey is back.

With this historical sweep, Piketty argues that the post-war period of low wealth inequality and rapid income growth was an aberration rather than a norm that we can expect to continue.

Piketty's book is revolutionary because it links trends in income to trends in wealth. It revolves around the return on capital - how much you get, after tax, if you invest a dollar in a company's shares or in housing, for example. Piketty contends that if the return on capital is higher than the economic growth rate, then wealth tends to become more concentrated. The rich get richer.

In fact, he maintains, wealth concentration is "normal". The mid-20th century was unusual. Two world wars destroyed capital. Economies grew fast due to post-war reconstruction and the baby boom. After World War II there were high taxes on wealth and top income-earners, which reduced the after-tax return on capital. As a result, for the first time in recorded economic history, in many developed countries the middle class accumulated a large chunk of the wealth." Wealth inequality is back with a vengeance http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-04-22/daley-w... via @abcthedrum

Depends on the statement. Some people in the spot light are ineloquent in what they are attempting to say. The unfortunate part with both Reid and Biden is they were very articulate in what they said and it went to the deepest levels of stereotypes.

Biden also made a slur about the ethnicity of a 7-11 clerk

A VP and a Senate leader have a big microphone and this is something you attempt to ignore.

I do not defend anyone ---it is not my job. Just like I notice you do not attempt to defend or correct inappropriate comments made by progressives here. The same thing Dave.

You are wanting others to do what you do not do yourself.

Speaking of hypocrisy, weren't you praising the new Pope a few months ago? Why, yes you were.
Just because I believe organized religion keeps people ignorant doesn't mean I have anything against the people in general. They are all looking for something missing in their lives. So be it.

The Pope is a good man who acts upon what he feels in his heart not church doctrines. He has said he feels a close kinship with non-believers. How refreshing!! It is obvious that the Pope's principles are not those of the Republican party, a party that claims to be based on Christian principles. The result has been a shameful Republican backlash against the Pope.

To point a finger of hypocrisy at Christians (who are still human and make mistakes, by the way) when progressive communistic liberals have no scruples whatsoever and don't even pretend to aspire to having any is almost comical.
If we all looked to God to meet our needs and heal our land and not big government, we'd be a lot better off. We might even start caring about each other again.
I still maintain it's not only a political battle but a spiritual battle in which we have found ourselves in the 21st century.
Just the fact that you would claim, "progressive communistic liberals have no scruples whatsoever and don't even pretend to aspire to having any" pretty much paints you as a brainwashed lemming lacking the ability to think rationally. Certainly not someone capable of caring about anyone but yourself and YOUR politics. Shame.

Nope. Won't work, Liar.

The article is unclear about its data being exclusively relevant to Florida plus it lumps all gambling together:

"The council's blog stated "the largest numbers of gamblers comes from the poorest segments of the population." The council's president said he was speaking in general about gambling -- not specific to lotteries or casinos or to any specific location."

The article's title "The largest numbers of gamblers come from poorest segment of population, says Florida Family Policy Council" registers "Mostly False" on Politifact's Truth-O-Meter.

The data throughout this article is muddled and outdated, too, lending further dishonesty to Politifact's "Mostly False" Truth-O-Meter.

Boy, did you fall on your face with this one, babee:->

If I talk about the Magic Negro government trampling on individual rights, you always come back with an attack on capitalism. Huh?

When others talk about the many varied forms of waste in Socialist Amerika's Government, your response is another attack on capitalism.

I strongly suspect that if I were to initiate conversation on the Higgs Field, you'd still show up with a criticism of capitalism.

To a Hammer, everything looks like a Nail.
To a Marxist Freak like you, every business is a bourgeoisie hammer implemented to crush the proletariat.
