I'd tend to agree with that statement were it not for the fact that just about every ethnic group in the United states receives food stamps on a regular basis, including members of our military.

God’-awful OWS mob steals sacred item from church

There’s no longer room at the inn at a Manhattan church that’s sheltering Occupy Wall Streeters after a holy vessel disappeared from the altar last week.

When the Rev. Bob Brashear prepared for Sunday services at West Park Presbyterian Church on West 86th Street, he noticed parts of the bronze baptismal font were gone.

In a fire-and-brimstone message to occupiers later that day, he thundered,“It was like pissing on the 99 percent.”

B'KLYN POL SUPPORTER FLIP-FLOPS ON HOME INVADERS

In Brooklyn, at another church housing OWS protesters, an occupier urinated on a cross, according to Rabbi Chaim Gruber, who has angrily abandoned the OWS movement.

In a letter last week to OWS obtained by The Post, the rabbi fumed,“The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross.”

Only in the GOP can some idiot claim that the president actually wants Americans on food stamps and be considered a serious contender.

Forget his birth certificate, I want to see
Newt's DNA test to prove he is really a human.

It wasn't necessarily a racist thing to say, but it was stupid. It doesn't surprise me that Gingrich would say something so stupid.

These poor 'victims' pull the race card like a gun at every opportunity when they run out of gas or lack the perspicuous thought to continue with an intelligent dialogue. They pull it so often it has little or no meaning any longer. <sob>

However....

My Rottweiler,“Rush Limp-Paw” goes into attack mode when he hears the word Racist or Liberal.(he can't distinguish the difference)
He jumps them and takes them to the ground, then he nuzzles their throats with bared teeth. He’s just a big fuzz ball and a tease.
When the poor puke collects his wits, he’s off in a 'race-ist'(with 'Rush' close behind) towards home to change his shorts...... <wink>

Newt is just trying to make the South rise again. He is creating a nice fantasy for his racist followers.

It will get him a lot of votes in a divided nation where roughtly 40% would like to put blacks back in conditions of a past that is cruel, evil and anti-human and made up of conditions that are supposed to have no place in our system of liberty and freedom.

The deck of cards is white and white owned and blacks can only play race-card when it is dealt to them.
