LMAO. After all the attacks against blacks, you have the nerve to say that you support Carson? Is it because he said, "The U.S. is very much like Nazi Germany?" and claiming that we live in a "Gestapo age ...where people are afraid to say what they actually believe." Hmm. Now that I think of it, I see exactly why a reich winger would think he "has a great deal of common sense." Geez.
You have gotten so confused by the lies and deception, you don't have any idea what he meant by that.

People who say what they believe in this country now are simply demonized. If that mentality grew, it would be like a Gestapo age again.

It's coming only from your side.

The July jobs report just came out today.
"Any talk about a healthy recovery regarding jobs hit a brick wall today, and the numbers will certainly be a rallying cry for Bears and Pessimists on Wall Street. Despite the promising data received on the backwards looking GDP, the forecast for the second half of the year is dismally sensitive,” said Todd M. Schoenberger, president of J. Streicher Asset Management LLC.“The economy still has a long way to go before Americans can even dream about being comfortable again.”
The Federal Reserve is using labor market data as one of several economic indicators to determine when to start raising rates from the near-zero range where they’ve sat since December of 2008. Inflation is another key indicator, and the two data sources go hand in hand.
Stagnant wages and average weekly working hours have crimped paychecks, curbing demand for goods and keeping inflation below the Fed’s target rate of 2%. Inflation has ticked higher in recent weeks, a factor noted on Wednesday in the Fed’s statement following its July meeting, but the central bankers gave no indication they’re ready to raise rates sooner rather than later.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen lamented the large number of jobs lost during the recession that are now being replaced either by part-time or temporary positions, depriving workers of a full-time job with the salary and benefits that go with a full-time position.

Things may look like they're getting better. But, according to the Fed Chair, Yellen, things apparently aren't always what they seem.
You said raising rates is bad.

Why is raising rates bad son?

Opposition to the health care law skyrocketed in July to reach the highest point ever, according to a Friday tracking poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The pro-Obamacare health care nonprofit found that 53 percent of Americans view the health care law unfavorably right now, up from 45 percent in June. It’s the largest majority that viewed Obamacare negatively in Kaiser’s monthly polls since the health care law was passed in 2010.

The Obama administration lost a crucial legal battle on July 18 when a federal court ordered the White House to release previously withheld information on Operation Fast and Furious to the government watchdog group Judicial Watch.

According to a press released issued Thursday, the court case stems from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit (that originally began as a FOIA request) filed by Judicial Watch in 2012 to obtain all documents that the president has withheld from Congress under claims of executive privilege.

Fox again??? Geez.

"According to new numbers, the U.S. economy continued to add jobs at a steady pace in July. Employers added 209,000 jobs to their payrolls, and while the report showed the unemployment rate ticking up slightly to 6.2 percent, even that was a somewhat positive sign."

Well, that's just a bunch of hooey. You should at least try and resist the brainwashing techniques coming from the ideologues on your side of the fence.
You should hate extremist Muslims who kill anyone who will not convert to Islam and professes a different faith. You should hate the chaos and unintended consequences thousands of illegals bring with them into our country.
No one hates or fears foreigners. Try and calm yourself.
Do you have any idea how many times I have stated that I "hate" extremists? Not just extremist Muslims but extremist Christians and Jews as well. You people, on the other hand, make no distinction between extremists and people just practicing their religious beliefs. You are totally intolerant.

As far as illegals are concerned, it is the businesses that have caused the "chaos and unintended consequences" of bringing thousands of illegals into our country. They are the ones your hate should be directed toward. Not the victims of their greediness. Stop hiding your head in the sand.

Bill Maher Points Out Liberal Racial Double Standard

After giving Paul Ryan a thorough tongue lashing on “Real Time with Bill Maher” for comments he made regarding impoverished inner city kids, Bill Maher turned around and got his guests good on their double standards.

He read another quote from Ryan, or so they all thought, and just as they were about to start ripping on Ryan again Maher told them that the statement he just read was from the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

“When it comes to getting an education, too many of our young people just can’t be bothered. They’re sitting on couches for hours playing video games, watching TV. Instead of dreaming of being a teacher or a lawyer or a business leader, they’re fantasizing about being a baller or a rapper,” the First Lady had said.

CRICKETS...

A joyful and laughing audience went silent, as did the members of the panel Maher had on his show as they were visibly surprised that the first Lady had made the remarks.

The black comedian on the show, W. Kamau Bell, who was the most vocal about Ryan fell dead silent and needed time to compose himself for a reply since he knew he was just caught by Maher in the typical double standard we see from liberals.

Bell, knowing he was caught in his hypocrisy, tried to excuse the First Lady’s comments by saying “We talk to each other differently than we talk in front of you.”
