Well goodness Mike, wasn't it you that said to TSF on another post just the other day and TSF never said he smoked, if you want to commit suicide don't smoke around me or blow smoke in my face and earlier tonight you're going on about second hand smoke and how bad it is. Find a side and stick with it. Either smoke really doesn't bother you or for the sake of a concert you'll tolerate smokers committing suicide for the sake of good music or either you don't like it period. Which is it?
Let me spell this out to those who cannot understand what others feel about smoke.

Having to work day in and day out in a building full of smoke is dangerous. I hate it. But I must make money to live, thus when it was legal to smoke in bars, I suffered through it.

One or two days of being around smoke is not going to kill anyone.
I know you likely cannot comprehend this, because it has grey areas, and you see only in black and white. Sucks to be color blind.

Mike, you're playing semantics now. Women may not have been forbidden, they weren't included, allowed etc i.e. you say tomato and I say tomahto. Either way I don't think young girls could throw a Wal-Mart temper tantrum and be taught when clearly their place in that day was in the kitchen, sewing, cleaning etc.
Yes, there were more than a few people other than black persons who were slaves in America, and you still didn't answer my question. Should they be allowed to attend colleges where funds are set up for blacks based on your argument because they were enslaved and forbidden to have an education?
I am pretty sure there is no law against them having a fund for college. Ask your KKK friends.

Actually the republican house voted against the million dollar line. When the clock was ticking, they finally caved.
Maybe if they were more compromising early on, the law would be at a million. Who knows?

<quoted text>Did you not research your employer before you applied? No one was "forced" to work in a smoke filled workplace, that was their choice.
No one forced Henry Ford to create a safe work environment, he took it upon himself thus getting the best help. He forced others to conform, not the govt.
I am aware no one is forced to work in these horrible conditions. But when you need to earn a living, you sometimes do what you make concessions.

A few good employers do take it upon themselves to do the right thing, but unfortunately, not enough do to employ all of America. So clearly something must be done to help make it safe for all to work and earn a living.

But what do you care, republicans lack empathy.

I have seen this propaganda before. I note it does not say "redistribute wealth". You see, in a business, their are multiple people who get the wealth distributed to. Stock holders for example. But you keep being paranoid like a typical republican. Is that tin hat comfortable?

Is smoking banned? Nope, case closed. Smokers have a choice, and democrats are not trying to stop them. They can smoke themselves to death if they wish. Hell, it is even legal to smoke their kids to death. They can smoke while pregnant. They can smoke in a car with a baby. They can blow it right in their faces. No law against it. I know a few redneck republicans who do just that. Quite sickening.

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.

No Arnold, I'll be the first one to state that I don't always understand Taxpayer's posts, but after a couple reads I understand him. He normally posts phrases, their meanings and gives names of books, and I used to make fun of his posts, but after taking the time to read and understand them, I don't discount his opinions. I'll be the first to admit I ribbed him some, but after reading some of all our posts, Taxpayer's alright and not anymore extreme that some of our "enlightened" posters on here. I think he's misunderstood, but he's okay.
Yea, old Taxpayer makes us commucrats laugh, and I love his posts. He's the James Joyce of Topix.

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.
After reading your post, I think Hillary has a good chance at winning.
Benghazi is only an issue to the extreme right wing nuts. Thus, nothing to bother the swing voter that makes or breaks the deal.

Your suggestion she should have opposed Obama this last time shows you know nothing about politics. I am sure Bill could explain what that would be a dumb idea.

I'd say smoking doesn't bother you at all. I'll go as far to say, you worked where you do and "tolerated" the smoke because it's an easy job and more than likely the only one you could get. Why would a man who prides himself on thinking he's as intelligent as you settle for working in a smokey bar, when smoke bothers him? I say if it bothered you that much, you'd get another job, stop going to concerts where people chain smoke and tell redneck republicans like our redneck, democrat cigarette smoking president that you don't like smoking. Smoking doesn't bother you that much or you'd get the heck out of dodge. You're such a hypocrite.

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.
I certainly see this and keep it in my mind often to keep me grounded to what my reality is in America.
I think those who either do not know about it or just push it out of their minds, are the ones who cry about the NAACP and such. No other race was treated so badly for so long in America.
People tend to not understand that if your parents were raised by someone who did not have equal education posibilities, it is highly likely you will not have family help in studies.
This is why I support and urge more public education. I hope for more higher education to be publicly funded.

Since I'm not up close and personal with Bill, you explain to me why Hillary shouldn't have run in this last election. She was far better schooled in politics than either Obama or Romney, she knew Obama and his administration's weaknesses and she could have used those to her benefit. Bengahzi will be a faded memory in the next election and should she decide to run, that shouldn't be a problem for her. However, I think her age will be her biggest hurdle and I think she gave up the perfect opportunity in this last election to take the W.H.

The money was good, and I figure most all jobs have some downfalls.
But now people in NC can make a good living and be safe from the rednecks who have no empathy for others.
Obama may smoke, but I certainly doubt he lights up in a resturant or around his kids.
Anyone with an ounce of consideration would not smoke in a room with a kid, ever.

Seventy is the new sixty.
If she had ran against Obama, it would make the democratic agenda look weak. It is bad enough to have primaries in general fighting your own party teammembers.
Rarely does one run against an incumbant of his own party. Despite what you think about Obama, his base thinks he is doing pretty good considering what he was left with by the republicans.
Only if his base was severely disgruntled would it be likely someone of his party would oppose him.
You say Obama did nothing for the economy, but I would certainly differ. I think he saved the American economy from collapse. Far from doing nothing.

Unless something in America goes in a different direction than it is right now, I see no reason the democrats will lose next time out. Well I guess unless some radical wins the primaries. Hillary is no radical, so if she wins the primary, I think she will win the whitehouse.

BTW, keep in mind I predicted Mitt would win the primaries when you guys doubted this.

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.
I do not think Arnold was talking about wealth. He was talking about the freedom to eat were you could afford.
There were no rules to prevent your family from eating in any resturant in town.
For you to claim you had the same shoes to walk in is pure ignorance.
Arnold could have had the nicest of clothes, and still be looked down upon. You just don't get it.

You have no idea how to put yourself in others shoes. This is a trend I note of most republicans.

I was very lucky. I had several teachers in school who inspired me that an education would someday lead me to know Silver.

The man on the horizon for the Democrat party in 2016 is Cory Booker. Of course, Rubio will be the Republican darling, maybe with a weak challenge from Santorum, maybe Ryan if he doesn't get a role in a remake of The Munsters.
