As the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network of free gas stations for minorities and the poor. According to a report in The Detroit News this morning, the administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to "improve transportation routes to hospitals" to dispense gasoline free of cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
The $2 billion-a-year program aims to distribute 40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70 new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the network, whose first station opened yesterday in Detroit.
"It's not something we're publicizing very much, for obvious reasons," explains Dori Salcido, assistant DHS secretary for public affairs. "But under the law we are well within our rights to offer this service, and we think it's good public policy.
"How are people supposed to get to the doctor's office if they don't have gas in their cars? Health insurance is worthless if you can't make your appointment. This is just another fine example of government stepping in and solving big problems."
No Gas for You
Although some developing oil-rich nations like Venezuela and Indonesia subsidize gasoline for the poor, the practice has never before been tried in the United States. The plans are proving controversial with some taxpayers who are loathe to see their money go to subsidize others.
"So basically I'm being punished for not living in the ghetto," says Colin Blair, a white person from the affluent Detroit suburb of Farmington Hills. "I have three kids and a mortgage. Life isn't cheap for me either. I could use some free gasoline too."
An investigation into the station's operations, however, reveals that Blair is unlikely to be able to use the service. "Supposedly access to the station is determined by income," says Ebony Jackson, manager of the first Obama station. "But it's pretty unrealistic to do an income check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate."
the dictator never stops the continuous division of the country. Would it hurt him to unite the citizens instead of divide them? I can just envision a national catastrophe where government distributes food to it's citizens, and what it would be like. His race preference would eat, drink and given shelter before anyone else regardless of ANY special needs. Mr. Martin Luther King WOULD NEVER HAVE STOOPED THIS LOW AND THESE WERE CERTAINLY NOT HIS INTENTIONS FOR OUR COUNTRY. He preached peace amongst the citizens and had NO INTENTION of dividing the country......as we all need one another and should be able to count and depend on each other in time of need. Very sad, what our country has turned into.

On p. 94-95 of Obama's first autobiography, he describes an effective tactic to deal with White people:“It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned:(White) PEOPLE WERE SATISFIED SO LONG AS YOU WERE COURTEOUS AND SMILED AND MADE NO SUDDEN MOVES. More than satisfied, they were relieved — such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”

A 1995 piece in the liberal Chicago Reader: "THAT'S JUST HOW WHITE FOLKS WILL DO YOU," Obama writes. "It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn."

In April 2008 Obama told a radio host, "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. BUT SHE IS A TYPICAL WHITE PERSON who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."

Michelle Obama's senior thesis at Princeton University-Her hypothesis? That the more time black students spend around other blacks,“the more positive and compassionate they will be in their attitudes toward lower class Black Americans”. Or, to rephrase her hypothesis: if highly-educated blacks look down on lower-income black Americans it’s the fault of whites and their white institutions like Princeton.

And do I really need to remind everybody here who said:“FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY ADULT LIFETIME, I’m Really Proud of My Country”

Alexander the Great quote:

"TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more time. When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back. Our time is our life."

Three Decades of Mass Immigration

The Legacy of the 1965 Immigration Act

http://www.cis.org/articles/1995/back395.pdf

Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965 Quote:

Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants
annually.

Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration
remains substantially the same ...

Secondly, the ethnic mix of this
country will not be upset ...

Contrary to the charges in some quarters,
[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one
country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa
and Asia ...

In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration
under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the
critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset
the ethnic mix of our society.

It will not relax the standards of
admission.

It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs."

(U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee
on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

OBAMA JUNE 3, 2010: I am furious at this entire situation. I would love to just spend a lot of my time venting and yellin' at people.

OBAMA MAY 15, 2013: We're going to hold the responsible parties accountable.

OBAMA MAY 16, 2013: The minute I found out about it, then my main focus is making sure that we get the thing fixed.

"GOP critics say Obama’s decision to weaken immigration enforcement has caused the new wave of migrants. In 2013, Obama only allowed officials to deport 0.2 percent of the 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States who had also not broken other laws. This month, he announced plans to renew a 2012 youth-amnesty program that has already awarded work permits to more than 560,000 illegal immigrants."

"Roughly one in eight American men — or 10 million men — between 25 and 54 do not have full-time jobs, even as the country has imported 10 million guest workers and 13 million immigrants from 2000 to 2013."
