Black mayor, head of code enforcement and superindent are contributing to this disgusting mess and nobody says a word. Way to go people!
penis chenny head of NORAD for one day (9-11-2001) nobody says a word.

And your cousin just keeps Rollin' on? Constitution pfffft. So what! You Americans don t care. Just facts

Michael McConnell wrote in the Wall Street Journal recently that President Obama’s decision to suspend the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act “raises grave concerns about his understanding of the role of the executive in our system of government.” Specifically, Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution states that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,” and McConnell emphasizes that “this is a duty, not a discretionary power. While the president does have substantial discretion about how to enforce a law, he has no discretion about whether to do so.”

Peaching to the people. The half breed in the white house is a half Black half white clone of george bush.

The only difference between the two is the idiot in office now can speak clearly.

Holder should be a bush family member - dumb mother f'er.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white
Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food
stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans,
legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs
designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against
white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas –
to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations,
civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their
time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care,
retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??
