Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal. Thirty-five years of racist housing policy. Until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole.

No sweetie. I don't ride any longer. My husband rides with friends. I stay home. When we do travel on the road, it is in a gas guzzling 40' RV with three dogs and a grandchild.

The U.S. Presidency is actually run by a female Chicago slumlord.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Even the most far left liberals would be shocked if they knew just how true that was.

The only thing Valerie Jarrett doesn't do is sleep between Michelle and Obama..

But she definitely runs the entire show. A notorious Chicago slumlord, no less.

Sadly, cotton planation owners in the south are responsible for slavery. Southern Democrats were responsible for Jim Crow laws. It was a Democratic president, Andrew Johnson, who took back the land - 40 acres and a mule - and gave it back to the slave owners.

The separate but equal mentality was most prominent in Southern states as well -- what history calls the Southern Democratic bloc. Had it not been for Democrats and Republicans (primarily) outside of the old south, blacks would still be struggling for civil rights.

But the moral debt has been paid. The overwhelming majority want blacks to have their rightful place in society and, because that has already happened, it's time to move on.

Blacks - like whites - can help themselves with education, skills, and waiting to have children they can afford with more fathers in the home.

However, you are right in saying "until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole."

It just goes much further and covers a lot more ground.

Good for you. You finally understand why big government doesn't work either. But yet you somehow think Obamacare isn't going to become another overburdened, overbloated and inefficient bureaucracy?

The employer mandate hasn't even hit the fan yet. It was delayed for a reason.

Quite a statement you make above. You can offer proof that republicans are;
- Responsible for the VA disaster?
- Democrats are completely without blame?
The proof would be interesting. Do not waste your time citing a left wing propaganda site.

Go back and reread my post. I said, "Republicans are trying to blame President Obama for the VA scandal that you and yours helped to create." I didn't say Democrats were without blame. I said they had "help" from your side. And, as I told you before, this has been an ongoing problem for decades.

How's this for an unbiased source...the attached link is a 2007 Veterans Affairs Audit of Veteran's Health Administration Outpatient Waitiing Times which determined that the VA's procedures for outpatient waiting times (30-120 days) were not being met. In fact, the report specifically states that "the accuracy of VHA's reported waiting times could not be relied on and the electronic waiting lists at those facilities were not complete." What did Bush do about the false reporting? Nothing.

OMG! You are SUCH a buzzkill!... my dangerous, violent undertones? Oooooooooo that sounds... scary... Does that make me a... a.. terrorist, Tickers?... Just cause I can I'm gonna tell you sumthin' about women, Tickers, you seem confused about what motivates them... Contrary to your obvious belief they are NOT attracted to honorable upstanding responsible bird-watching crunts until they're at LEAST 40 years old..... Secondarily, if you DO have children, did you ever wonder why they had kinky black hair?... Sounds like a crude insult on the face of it, but... think about it... that's all I'm saying... you're Polish, dude...

If the media had the guts to treat Obama like they treated Bush, your half white, far left, Muslim sympathizer of a president would be under a desk in the Oval Office whimpering like a spanked child.
Barack ¨Who, Me?¨ Obama, finger-pointer and blame-layer extraordinaire...oh yeah, let's not forget Liar of the Year.
That 'bout covers it. He should have tried to make it in Hollywood. Certainly has the ego to fit right in.
