Dear White People,
Are you guys griping about Barack Obama again. For the last 6 years, all you guys have done is revile this guy for no reason other than the color of his skin. Yes, I said it. You have nothing against this guy accept that he is black president in a "white" county. That's something that just irks most White Americans. White people just have a problem seeing nigher in the White House, right?
Look, get over it. European Civilization had a great run. Since the Roman Empire, they've been almost unstoppable. However, time does change. Empires rise and fall. People come and go. If this is the time for Blacks to have their time in the sun...or Hispanics...or Asians....so be it. They may not do any better that white folks but they certainly can't do any worse. And after they've had their time in the sun, they will be replaced by the next group that fortune smiles upon.
Relax. One day they will be replaced like Whites are being replaced. So why are you complaining. White people have already had their fun.

a fair interpretation would be Republican legislation with an indefference to equal protections and equal access for any number of citizens practicing personal preferences. DOMA comes to mind

Every law he refused to pursue and defend was proven unconstitutional by the court and, an infringement of citizens rights. As Stated, DOMA comes to mind.

the stimulous money wasn't earmarked for anything...the mistake obama made with that waas leaving it to the congress to dole out in their normal pork fashion..

some of us states did use it for shovel ready jobs we would have had to pay for anyways...and it helped our economies greatly.

a huge part of it went to keeping education and gov't jobs from being cut.

You're giving credit for the Stock market's success to Obama? Believe me, He has nothing todo with it. The stock market is successful in spite of Obama. He probably considers it as one of his failures that he has not been able to shut it down!
Socialism, the equal distribution of poverty!

If you did not spend all the highway trust fund dollars developing the interstates inside the big cities but only connected them instead it would have not run out of money. Interstates never should have gone right through the middle of the big metropolises
