<quoted text>
In the mean time in between time, he has regulated the economy in such a way that small black owned startup businesses cannot get any financing at all. Previously, we could get sub-prime loans. Now we cannot get even that. Smart, I say. Right on, right on, Mr. House Slave President.
Like all the politicians, he is rolling in the bed with Wall Street and the bankers, and does not want to defy those two groups. They could clearly give incentives to companies to stay here and create jobs, but unfortunately the workers are not their number one goal. And now that corporations are people according to the SCOTUS, the jobs will keep going offshore. It is all about greed. The simple fact is, we can look at growth in the pay of CEOs relative to their subordinates, and note that even poorly run companies are paying exorbitant salaries to CEOs.
We clearly have corporate socialism on one hand where big companies get their own type of welfare, in the form of tax breaks and bailouts that socialize their losses but privatize any gains.
And the start up businesses can not get the capital they need to grow their businesses. They all claim that they care about small businesses, but I just don't see either party trying to do anything other than cozying up to the large companies that are "too big to fail" which clearly are not the majority of American businesses.

Obama was bamboozled by the military-industrial complex that keeps the US in constant wars.
Right. But we elected Obama to be Commander in Chief. Personally, I did not expect him to dismantle to military. But, I did expec t him to avoid un-necessary conflict. For examply, I knew he would try to kill bin Laden. That was cool with me. But, I did not like the way he did it. I do not like lynchings and have never liked it and wqill never like it. This is something that is deep in African psychology in America. I grew up in the Jim Crow south. The threat of lynching hung over lives every day. But, Obama does not seem to undersatnd that one sure way to alinate the votes of people who have witnessed and experienced lynchings in America is to allow lynchings to prevail in Libya and to actually commit lynchings himself.( http://www.youtube.com/watch... and http://www.youtube.com/watch... and http://www.youtube.com/watch... ) It was not just bib Laden who was lynched, it was a couple of others and probably many others that we do not even know about. Obama also lynched al-Awalaki in addition to lynching bin Laden and Qaddafi. I think it was the influence of Hitlery KKKlinton. She ran the whole show. That woman has always been suspected as a lynch mob an undercover KKK member. Now, we have convincing evidence: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-201233... . This is enough tyo make any human being puke. Obama and KKKlinotn are obviously not humans like you and me.

The war mongering continues unabated though. It keeps the masses feeling good about themselves when they praise the heroes that return maimed due to these unnecessary interventions. I have much respect for the troops and really feel bad that they are being used for such war mongering purposes such as Libya.
And the Gay issue turns the debate to other than jobs and the economy. The Gays will have the right to be unemployed and married now, instead of just unemployed. I bet that is good for some folks, but won't do much for those that see thru the pandering.
As for marriage, thos esex perverts running this country have corrupted the culture so much that nobody gets married anymore expect "same sex marriage".

LOL. Perhaps the CCP can take over for the NAACP, probably an improvement to say the least!
We broke with NAACP stupidity in 1945 at the 5th Pan-African Congress. In fact, we took control of ther Pan-African Congress Movement and renamed it the All-African People's Conference that led to African Union. Here's the thing about the NAACP that we disagree with (Keep in mind that we agree with their fight against segregation and all that) We disgree with the idea that it takes an elite "taqlented tenth" like Obama and KKKlinton to solve our problems. Of course, we need a well trained cadre. But they cannot dictate to the ordinary African workers and farmers and families and churches. To the contray, the CPP believes that it is our duty to listen to the poor people and to be accoutable to the masses of Africans everywhere.

The CPP's history is one in which Kwame Nkrumah went into the countryside to the poor peasants and farmers. He went to the factories to the poor workers. He went to the veterans of WWII. He went to the vast majority of ordinary Africans, mobilized them, empowered them, emancipated them and freed the entire nation while inspiring the Civil Rights Movement in the USA.

That last point is crucial to understanding what I am trying to say. In recent years black leadership has diplayed an elitist house slave mentality. Condi Rice was notable for this. It has continued with Suzi Rice and Obama. Actually Condi Rice, a Republican, had a better attitude towards Africa and Africans than Suzi Rice and the Obama gang. Her first important act as Secretary of State was to go to Africa. But, her mind, her head was so sccrewed up that she did not know how to follow proper protocol and caused a huge diplomatic blunder.( http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8645592/ns/world_... ) Read that crap: "diplonmacy 10-1 says yopu do not rough up your guests" LOL!!! Get that: "diplomacy 101 says you ain't supoose to kick the booty of your guest when they violate standard protocol" How stupid can you get? If that white b-word had not approached the head of state in violation of protocol she would not have had her behind kicked. But at least they had enough sensee to go to Africa which has the fatsest growing economies in the world right now. Obama gang does not have that much sense

That last point is Africa has the fastest growing economies in the world right now.( http://www.madote.com/2010/11/eritrea-has-3rd... ) This is in addition to the fact that Africa has the richest natural resopurces in the world, period.( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment... ) But instead of learning from Eritrea and Angola ( http://www.economist.com/blogs/dailychart/201... ) etc., etc., and using the knowledge to solve the economic problems that affects the black community all across America, what does the Obama gang do? They impose sanctions of Eritrea: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy-... . This kind of attitude is plumb stupid. It is clear anti-African racism by house slaves such Obama and Suzi Rice. This is what we do not need.

What we do need is to have the black communities, the areas where blacks are the majority, develop businesses and programs to trade with Africa thereby creating jobs for blacks in the USA. This is the bottom up way of seeing things as opposed to the Obama "talented tenth" top down way of trying to boss everybody around baased on our race. Obama's white side is the most anti-black racist president I have ever lived under.

Continued from above…
The attitude of the CPP as compared to the basic attitude of the NAACP is fundamentally and completely different. Our philosophy has always been opposed to theirs. Booker T. Washington has the right approach. And history has vindicated Washington and his ideology of helping and re habilitating The Man Farthest Down ( http://www.questia.com/PM.qst... ) The Garvey Movement was based on that approach to solving problems. And this is what inspired Nkrumah which led to decolonization and towards African Unification. And as I said, it did not stop in Ghana. Once Ghana became independent, all of Africa soon followed in Ghana’s footsteps. And the thanking and actions in Africa has eventually reached the entire African world in the Caribbean, Latin America, North America and Europe.
Martin Luther King Jr. admitted that his thinking was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi. What I never heard him say, however, is that Gandhi’s ideas originated in Africa, South Africa to be specific. The African National Congress which was inspired in part by Booker T. Washington, inspired the Indian National Congress led by Gandhi. This is what we learn from an honest and serious study of African history. So we see the common connection. We cannot expect a layman to know this fact. But we could expect people to know that Martin Luther King Jr. worked directly with Kwame Nkrumah. One picture is worth a thousand words: http://www.google.com/imgres... . But few people know this. And those who do know it hide the fact and keep ordinary people from knowing it.
The CPP knows it. And what I am proposing is that we pick up those pieces, put them back together again and go forward.

<quoted text>SIDEBAR:
Why do you not want to run as a Republican? What does cppna mean?
I think Romney is blundering around trying to figure out what to do. He is too timid to denounce such crazy ideas as Reaganomics. And he seems to not know enough about Africa and the Africa's role in the world. At least he is not an "evangelical". But as a Mormon, he is essentially White Angola Saxon Protestant oriented. The Mormons only recently recognized Africans as full members of their church. That worries me.

And it is that kind of eurocentrism that has informed his position on such matters as the Arab israeli conflict. I think the best way to protect israel is to get an IMMEDIATE peace treaty. But he seems willy to follow the bush approach and allow israel to engage in any kind stupid little war it can dream up. That is a disastrous way of dealing with it for this reason: the world has changed and is changing so rapidly that racist eurocentric ideals and values are no longer workable. Africa has the fastest growing economies in the world. Asia has the second fastest growing economies in the world. I tend to lump the Arab countries in with the Africans. For instance, 20 years ago Saudi Arabia was still a backwards backwater. Now they have perhaps the most advanced irrigation technologies in the world. isreal cannot lord it over the Saudis or any of the other Arabs any longer. We must face reality. If israel refuses to sign a workable peace deal NOW, in a few more years, they will be subject to over-run. The Arabs and Africans will have the potential to wipe them out. So, now is the last opportunity to solve the Arab-isreali conflict on western terms.

As for Africa policy, I do not see one yet. So we can assume that it is based on eurocentric racism as it has always been. This is a huge opportunity for smart and thinking African theorists and policy-makers. If we teach Obama a lesson, it will send a message to Romney to not mess with Africa he wants to get re-elected. And this is also an opportunity for the Republicans to regain a percentage of the black vote. They need to go back to the thinking and actions of Nixon and Eisenhower who had a positive relationship with Abd al-Nasser and Kwame Nkrumah, the two most prominent African leaders of their time. No other president has had as good of relationship with Africa and the Middle East since Eisenhower. I think Romney needs to start there and that Africans need to start there to chart a way into the present and the future. We are still decades behind in relationship between Washington, DC and Africa. There is a lot of catching up to do.

The last point is, I am convinced that Condi Rice's approach to Africa was morally wrong and deeply flawed on every level. This is why the relationship with Africa is at crisis level now. We have to bypass the Obama years and the Rice years and go all the way back to Nixon and Eisenhower to find the appropriate and constructive relationship between Africa and Washington DC.

Oh, I forget to say that CPPNA means Convention People's Party, Noprth America Region. This inlcudes Canada, the USA and the Caribbean. This is another group calling itself CPPUSA.

You are right on this point. Both Obama and Romney needs to find a way to get financing to the level of the two year collge graduate with an AS Degree in Real Estate. That is where the solution lies. But even at this level (And I am qualified as a Real Estate broke), the policies since the Grerat Recession crash have been geared towards keeping the old brokerages safe by keeping new brokers from entering the market.

What Obama needs to do to interest me in the least bit is to make it possible for someone like me who has spent a lifetime working for white people to start our own real estate brokerages and own our own businesses and not have to keep bowing down to whites for the remainder of our lives. Why cannot Dummycrats see this? And for a balck prsident, this sort of thing ought top be the minimum that he can do in order to have a legacy of some kind of success. As it is now, I think Obama will not be re-elected and that his legacy will, the legacy of the first balck president will be a complete failure. This is not my fault and I do not intend to remain silent about it.

Well that cast of clowns they have running now is really pathetic. Intelligent Republicans ought to be embarrased about their selections for this year.
Constant babbling about non-issues like birth control, amnioscentisis and abortion, while the country is in an economic tailspin is just irresponsible.
If they would actually present intelligent candidates, talking about issues that concern most people like jobs and the economy and their proposal to fix same, then I might actually vote for one of 'em.
Like these?
General Electric made $5 Billion doallrs without a paying a penny in taxes. Obama has GE Chief Jeffrey Immelt as his economy adviser.
Here is more evidence of the suicide mission this country is on: General Electric announced it's moving its 115-year-old X-ray business from Waukesha, Wisconsin to Beijing, China.
The X-ray business is part of General Electric's GE Healthcare unit, and this move is just part of a broader plan by GE to invest $2 billion in China.
Across the Washington area last week, young workers from Europe arrived in droves, heading for jobs at community swimming pools. Lugging duffel bags, they filled out forms, picked up safety gear and chatted in a variety of Slavic languages, eager to plunge into a summer experience of new friends, skills and culture.
Today in America
22.8 Million people are unemployed or under employed.
Unemployment nationwide rate is above 8% for over 39 months-highest ever.
Illegals get $4 billion dollars a year in tax credit
40 cents of every dollar America is spending comes from borrowing from China.
41% of the unemployed have been unemployed for 39 months or more.
80% of the drop in unemployment over Obama's term comes from people that have dropped out of the work force.-522,000 have actually dropped out of work force.
80 of Obama's stimulus went to Public Unions.
For every dollar gas companies get in subsides -Green Energy got $50. Gas produces 500 times more energy,besides each individual paying 35-45 cents per gallon of gas the top three oil companies paid 45% of their profits in taxes.

There is no doubt that Obama has a lot of good will. But as in my own case, he has destroyed his own support. Bombing Africa and lynhing people wholesale was hurtful to a major part of the world, and every decent American. But the "gay marriage" issue was adding insult to injury. I honestly do not want to campaign against Obama. At the same time, I will not sit silenly while that KKKlinton wing of the Dummycrat Party tries to sell us a bag of goods. Obama proved himself not to be qualified to lead this country. And, I do not think he will be re-elected no matter how much stupid propaganda is floated around. It is not that people think highly of Romney. I do not. It is that anybody is better than Obama (and KKKlinotn and nutcases like her).

Dog, no matter how you look at it, the two candidates are neck and neck nationwide. But that will not remain that way much longer. There was more bad economic news this week. Let's see how far Romeny will be ahrea next week after campaigning none at all and just letting the reality of the Obama mess sink in. By the time November rolls around, most Americans will be so mad at the Obama gang it won't be funny at all.

Get this joke. Last week a handful of house slaves went to the White House to "advise the president" on how to fix some of this mess. I know some of them personally. Nearly two years ago, I telephoned one of them to make some suggestions on how to fix this mess. The mess has been obvious for so long it ain't even funny anymore. That idiot has still not returned my phone calls after I called him numerous times. I guess he thought it was in my interests and not in his and Obama's. Anyhow, this is what they brought back and propaganized in a local paper: "The White House is well organized". LOOOOOOL!!! Really? But obviously the Post Office is not "well organized". My mail is all screwed up AGAIN. Obama cannot even operate the Post Office effectively. I would vote for the mail man before I would vote for Obama.
