COPIED FROM ANOTHER POSTER:

If You Have ever Wondered What's Wrong in the United States These days;
READ THIS ONE PRINTED IN THE BEAUFORT N. C. PAPER FROM A "TRUE DEMOCRAT"
THEN WONDER "NO MORE"!!
There are NO words to describe this ... seriously...absoltely none!

ROTF!!!!

(Editor's note: The following Letter to the Editor, published in the Jan. 23 edition, has gone viral on the Web after a reader linked it to a Fox News Facebook page. It had received more than 4,000 comments and been shared more than 12,000 times by Tuesday morning.)

I have brought this here for your enjoyment and some explanations if any. Here is the entire text of the news clipping in article format. I will also post the image.
It is listed under the "More Modern Way Of Living" section.

Beaufort, N.C.
Jan. 17, 2013
TO THE EDITOR:

Republicans and "so-called" conservatives are at it again. They are claiming that the constitution gives people the right to have guns without the permission of the government. If that were true then how could New York and Chicago have laws against it?
We democrats are sick and tired of republicans constantly using the constitution to cover up their true plans, which are to make us all afraid of everyone else.
Our great president came from a civilized part of the country where there is strict gun control, and he is only trying to bring the benefits of that more modern way of living to the rest of us. I don't know the exact statistics, but I'm quite certain that Chicago is a lot safer that Morehead city, when it comes to gun violence.
But do Republicans and conservatives listen to the voice of reason?
No, Of course not. All they want to do is whine and complain about how gun control and wealth redistribution violate the constitution, as if the constitution were all that great, anyway. There are a lot of things that need to be changed about the constitution, I'd say, and president Obama needs to change it.
The Republicans are just trying to stand in the way, because the president is black. They even dared to question whether he was born in this country.
I think all this demonstrates that the constitution needs to be amended when it comes to the qualifications for being president.
Right now it says that a person has to be 35 years old and be a natural born citizen. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C section. But because the constitution was written a hundred years ago nobody even thought of the discrimination that would result from a doctor having to deliver a baby in this unnatural way.
Now that we Democrats are in control of the government, that's just one more thing we should change in our drive to make life fair.
Please withhold my name because I don't want to get crank calls.
PROUD TO BE A DEMOCRAT.

The problem IS ... there are SOME who will continue to bicker and WHINE about not getting their way, therefore causing strife between the party's.

Just that some people have not seen it that way, and CONTINUE causing TROUBLE!!! Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are two of the WORST! imho
Passed by Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified on December 6, 1865, the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the United States and provides that "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.".

Letter from Jackie Robinson to
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
May 13, 1958
Robinson responded to Presidential civil rights comments amid continuing controversy over school desegregation efforts in Little Rock, AR, and the South. In September 1957, Governor Orval Faubus had ordered the Arkansas National Guard to prevent entry of nine African American students into that city's Central High School. President Eisenhower reluctantly sent U.S. troops to enforce the school's integration. From his position as a prominent executive of the Chock Full o'Nuts Corporation, Robinson continued his advocacy of social justice.(National Archives and Records Administration, Dwight D. Eisenhower Library, Abilene, KS)

Amazing what a little 'research' and using Google will DO for you!
If it is level for everyone, how then do you explain the need for Affirmative Action? Anti-discrimination laws (color and gender)? Laws prohibiting same sex marriage?

If it is level for everyone, how then do you explain the numerous successful lawsuits brought against individuals and organizations that have denied individuals access to opportunities (e.g., denial of promotions despite equal or better qualifications)?

If it is level for everyone, how then do you explain our history which says otherwise?

We have a stacked deck and it's stacked in favor of the white male power structure. They have, over 200 years, created a system woven into the fabric of our society that supports their ideas, politics, morals and beliefs. It's the power to exclude. The power to exclude gives meaning to their lives. By compelling inclusion violates everything they have come to believe they are entitled to.

Cost Of Sequestration: 700,000 Jobs May Be Lost From Across-The-Board Budget Cuts Through 2014, GDP Growth May Slow: Report
http://www.ibtimes.com/cost-sequestration-700...
Sequestration, or the across-the-board cuts to discretionary spending that are programmed to automatically kick in on March 1 if Congress and President Obama don't agree on how to avoid the cuts, will create significant head winds for growth through next year, according to Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC. The St. Louis-based economic analysis firm estimates that unemployment will shrink from the current 7.90 percent to 7.4 percent by the end of 2014, but the automatic budget cuts (as they stand now) would shave a quarter percent off that growth as government spending -- including for private sector contracts and military personnel -- would be curtailed. That could translate to 700,000 jobs lost (including reductions in the armed forces) and the possibility that higher unemployment "would linger for several years," according to the report.(cont.)

No, what I did was point out that nearly every other polling organization in the country is saying the exact opposite of what you're stand alone online survey says.
A clear majority of Americans support some sort of legal status for those currently in the country illegally and there is little support for deportation.
Ignore reality and only listen to those that tell you what you want to hear and you will be as surprised and disappointed with the results of immigration reform as you were with the results of the 2012 election.
Did I make that clear enough or are you still confused?

Yes, I did. And, I did some more research as well. The Republican appointed judge chastised the prosecutor because he didn't tell the criminal that he still had some whistle blowers working at the company reporting that the criminal was still stealing money from medicare.
The company officials knew they had been investigated and that they had been caught red handed and they were negotiating with the prosecution over reimbursement. The company officials didn't know that they had employees still working for the prosecution who were reporting that the company officials were still ripping off medicare.
Its America don't everyone have a right to know who their accusers are?? Ya know transparency?? Oh thats right you dems only believe in it when its for your side..

Poll: 40% say let the looming budget cuts happen
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57570484/...
Despite dire predictions from some about the harmful impact of the "sequester" spending cuts due to kick in on March 1, 29 percent of Americans have never heard of the sequester, and a full 40 percent of Americans believe we should allow the cuts to go into effect, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.
Forty-nine percent of Americans, on the other hand, believe we should delay the automatic spending cuts. But if the cuts do land, congressional Republicans would shoulder a far greater share of the blame than President Obama: only 31 percent would blame the president, while 49 percent would blame the GOP in Congress.(cont.)
Surely you realize Obama is lying, don't you?

He did NOT "give up" like most DO(woe is ME), he kept at IT, persevered and BECAME famous for it!
He most definitely HAS my respect, whereas the 'alien' does NOT!
Proves my point that the playing field isn't level. Were Robinson white, with his talents, he would have easily been able to join a major league baseball team. He would never have had encounter the obstacles that he did. It would not have been necessary for him to preserve at trying to join.

A more recent example is Obama. Were he white, with his abilities and credentials, he would never have needed to overcome the additional obstacles of racism and alleged foreign birth.

A future example will be a Hillary Clinton, should she choose to run for president.

It's not unusual for minorities and women to be more talented and/or better qualified than their white counterpart just to be considered "equal."

It's Republicans who don't mind making this batch legal - just so long as they get some more cheap labor in the process via a great big old guest worker program attached to the bill before they'll agree to it. Hummmmm.

LOL! You have no point to make about me. It's not your place to pass judgment on me in the first place.

And I've told you at several times now that I'm replying to posts that are critical, mean, nasty, hateful the majority of the time. And that is my right. YOu seem to have a particular problem with me for some reason, yet you completely ignore the vulgar, vicious and hateful posts from others and other posters being off topic.

I suggest you read someone else's posts and stop obsessing over mine. You are being just as critical as you are accusing me, and I haven't seen you post on topic yet.

Anti-discrimination laws (color and gender)?... Whining BUT not as bad! Gender HAS a reason, somewhat!

Laws prohibiting same sex marriage?... AGAINST the laws of Nature & God!

If it is level for everyone, how then do you explain the numerous successful lawsuits brought against individuals and organizations that have denied individuals access to opportunities (e.g., denial of promotions despite equal or better qualifications)?... Greedy and WHINING lawyers preying on the minds and hearts of numerous Christians who don't KNOW their Constitution!

We have a stacked deck and it's stacked in favor of the white male power structure... Some whining over a A patriarchal system of "it's a man's World" ... and they DO take care of a lot of US! There IS where the gender TERM comes in, and have reason to "whine" discrimination.

Ignoring opposition and abuse, Anthony traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for the vote. She also campaigned for the abolition of slavery, the right for women to own their own property and retain their earnings, and she advocated for women's labor organizations. In 1900, Anthony persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women.
