If you think the republican majority school boards here in NC are letting in a bunch of liberal propaganda, it is you who is not actually looking at the textbooks.
Of course you didn't, you agree with the liberal agenda.

The Coliseum shows always have smokers. Strange that they do not enforce the law. It really sucks when the seat you buy is next to a chain smoker.
Smokers in bars all to often chain smoke. They do not seem to care that others are bothered by it or that it can actually give others cancer.
If people actually had normal considerations, maybe their would be no ban on smoking. But the fact is, people will smoke and blow it in your face while you are eating right next to them. Now they cry about not being able to smoke in the bars. I really do not feel bad for them at all.
So you say women should have a choice of abortion but smokers shouldn't have a choice, got it. Is it because abortion doesn't effect you and smoking does, because that's the stance of your party, or both?

No, it's because of his double standards which he always accuses anyone of that disagrees with him.

Former President Bill Clinton has a warning for top Democratic donors: Don't underestimate weapons rights supporters.

Clinton, speaking to a group of Democrats at the Obama National Finance Committee Saturday, said gun control gets a special emotional response from people in rural states, and dismissing pro-gun arguments can backfire.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said, Politico reported.

“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said.“I know because I come from this world."

Some polls say that the public supports proposals for increased gun control, Politico reports, but Clinton said emotions will rule when it comes to legislation on gun control.

“All these polls that you see saying the public is for us on all these issues — they are meaningless if they’re not voting issues,” Clinton said.

Lu, I don't think Hillary should run, nor do I think she will. I hte to sound ugly but she's just about too old and this last gig of her's has done nothing to help her image, especially the debacle in Benghazi. She should have challeneged Obama in this last election and I believe she would have won the whole shooting match. Obama had done nothing to help the economy, unemployment was high, she knew more about foreign policy than he did and she also knew the weakness within the Democratic party and could have used those to her advantage. Obama threw her a few crumbs by giving her the secretary of state job and basically did so to insure she wouldn't run againt him. The only way I see her running, is to go home, rest, and start today rebranding herself and whether you like him or not, old slick Willie would be a great asset to her.

It is obvious on here that the Republican base learned nothing from the last Presidential election. They just go on with the same rant that got them soundly defeated. Diversity is still an ugly word for them. Keep it up. With those extreme right wing views, you are likely to never see another Republican President in your life time. Thanks for giving us the entire store. You killed your party with your hard ass attitudes, insensitivity and nonsense rants.

Let's look at Silver's (the avowed racist) question about black history month, NAACP, and The United Negro College fund as an example. Here he cries 'discrimination'. Let's look at the history. Black people were enslaved from 1619 to 1865 in the ultimate inhumane conditions one can imagine, illegal for them to be literate and sold their families to other owners at will, breaking up the family unit in the most horrible way. Following 'freedom' from slavery in 1863, they were given another 100 years of segregation and inferior schools in which to learn. This has been the struggle of the black man in America. Jobs were limited due to race and therefore, living conditions were based on poverty and separated by race. And this mindless and heartless soul wants to cry about 'discrimination'. I am not crying. I am telling you the facts. Bacon, I have asked you before. How many times did you go out for dinner in public with your family? Too many times to count. How many times did my brothers and sisters and I. None. Why? Because as a kid, restaurants would not serves "coloreds" and we picked up our food at the back window and took it home. Do you think this was right and justified? Any of you. What do you think? You never project yourselves to see the injustice of this. Only Mike and Allen can see this. The rest of you are totally blind, and will remain that way.

True that, Bill is NO dummy. I would have loved to have seen his face though, when Egyptians chanted "Monica" as Hillery rolled into town. Bet he turned his cell off!:)

Arnold, put away your crystal ball. I have never said I went out to eat as a kid more times than I could count. We weren't afforded the luxury of going out to eat and if we did, it was McDonald's or on s Sunday night after church Tony's Ice Cream, neither a bastion for the rich and famous. My parents spent our money for braces to go on my brother's legs, speech therapy and medications for him. We thought we had hit it big when mom could buy a little bit of hamburger meat and we'd have grilled hamburgers on a cheap old grill and we got BBQ potato chips to eat with our burgers. So Arnold, don't go talking out of your butt about things you don't know. I'd been happy if we had to pick up any kind of food at the front, back or the side of the building. Let me go just a step further, when we did get to go out to eat when I was little it was only because our grandparents took us. We didn't have the nicest of clothes but they were clean, you think I don't know how people looked at us with pity in their eyes or disdain? Arnold, there's more than one way to discriminate against people. Stop the pity party because some of us have walked the same mile in our shoes that you did yours'.

Was it always like this for us, no. My dad and mom worked their butts off and we were able to move up in the world, but it doesn't mean I don't remember who I am and where I came from.

Black kids of today have many prisons to free themselves of. Many continue to think freedom is "how cool you dress" and this is a typical reaction to poverty. When I see "the cool" black kids at school who are wearing the cool sneakers and the expensive hoody, I understand their need to give an appearance, but I advise them that they will never be free until they truly work hard and strive to get an education that will provide these things for a lifetime. I tell them my story to try and get through. Education will always be the key to success and is worth every hard ship you have to endure. Some see it, but many do not and like most kids, black and white, only live for the moment. The stuggle continues on.
