I know that SCOTUS had warned that there was an end date for affirmative action.
Affirmative action was ridiculous in the first place, placing people of a certain race above persons of another race based solely on skin color !

That was what the civil rights movement was supposed to be against in tghe first place; but thats what they ended up adopting! What kind of foolishness is that?

Whites and Asians ARE physically inferior to Blacks.

Blacks and Hispanics ARE Intellectually inferior to Whites and Asians

That is just how it is, to have programs that pick inferiors over superiors based on quotas is just plain asinine.

Blacks are fantastic athletes and whites and Asians are inferior in this area. What if Pro football or basketball teams had to be 20% WHITE 20% BLACK 20% ASIAN 20% HOMOSEXUAL AND 20% HISPANIC?

That is how fucking retarded Affirmative action is.....

This is just one more example of DemoRat Retardation..

Russell Simmons: Biden was Right
The Vice President made headlines Tuesday when he told a mostly black audience that Romney’s economic policies would “put y’all back in chains.” While some have called the comments offensive, for music mogul Russell Simons, Biden was speaking the truth.
oe Biden's truthful comment that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would put "y'all back in chains" sat fine with me. Here's why and here's one example.&#8232;
The greatest cause of the destruction of the fabric of the black community in the past forty years is drug legislation that targets and imprisons those who live in under-served communities. The consequences of these draconian laws are that it takes diseased people, locks them up for long periods of time, educates them in violent criminal behavior and dumps them back into the community. The money for this operation is obviously funded by the "good old boys" who run Wall Street.
So, when Joe Biden’s comment yesterday made Republicans jump out of their seats, I wondered why they were so upset. Black people certainly were not. If Republicans really want to know how to help black people, then end the war on drugs, because that really is a war against our own people. Changing those policies will start to free "the chains." Instead, these and other biased policies supported by the Republican Party disempower blacks and all other minorities in various ways. Without healthcare, quality education, equal rights for women and gays and a just tax code (that raises my taxes!), under-served communities will be hit the hardest by the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. We must do everything in our power to make sure that doesn't happen. &#8232;

The CBO memo indeed said the money was going to ObamaTax & Care. That is the way they kept the cost down for the program. They even tried to double count it.
Now to basics which Left deniers will continue being such. On my check I pay a Medicare tax. When they money is diverted to pay for ObamaTax & Care it is indeed a cut to what would have gone into Medicare.
Fact Check attempt a stupid slight of hand that fooled some but others saw through the dishonesty. If the money is not going into Medicare then it is a cut from Medicare funds.
In the memo? What page?

Testimony: Paul Van de Water, Senior Fellow, Before the Committee on the Budget
U.S. House of Representatives

First, critics have claimed that CBO’s cost estimate double-counts the Medicare savings. This assertion is readily disproved. Let’s be very clear. CBO counts everything once and only once. It counts the Medicare savings once. CBO doesn’t count anything twice. Just read the cost estimate.

In the cost estimate? What page?

He's absolutely right. The only way you can be discriminated against for life is to be a convicted felon. With the increase in private prisons who pay hefty campaign contributions (Rick Scott)
watch for increased laws, stiffer penalties to ensure a steady stream of paying customers.
Vote to re elect the President, especially with regard to the Supreme Court.
Romney/Ryan may introduce debtors prison. Imagine how many millions more they can incarcerate, people who will never be able to vote.

wow, just scanning over the thread of comments makes me a bit sad. I keep seeing the words "Black People"...have we not evolved out of such a limited way of thinking? Did we not know how bad the economy was when Obama was elected?? He walked into a huge mess..and it will not be fixed if every option was fillabustered. We are all ready for a change..and change we will have. The whole way our world is ran backwards, no matter who is in office change will happen. Our environment is polluted and getting worse, we can no sustain the over consumption and disposal mentality any longer. Do you want corporate america as president?? Because that is what you will get if you vote for Romney. It is just a matter of time though, the president can only do soo much. The real power is in the consumers hands and always has been. Products don't sell if we don't buy them. We collectively decide what will be mass produced and what will not be. Every purchase you make makes a difference. I wish not to offend and hope you all the best!*=o)

Sebelius and ‘double-counting’ of Medicare savings

Aha! The double-counting of Medicare funds for the new health care has been admitted by the Obama administration. At least that’s what Republicans claimed as the video clip above when viral on the Internet.

On the face of it, Sebelius’ answer seems rather strange. As one web headline put it,“Sebelius Cracks! Admits the Obamacare Books Were Cooked”

But on another level, Sebelius is telling the truth, though somewhat inartfully. There is really nothing quite as nefarious about the process as some critics suggest, though one could argue that the process is wrong. A lot of this has to do with the strange and complicated way that the U.S. federal budget is calculated, so let’s take a trip through the numbers.

When President Bill Clinton signed the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, then House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) was one of the speakers.“On Medicare, we came together and we saved the system for at least a decade,” he declared. How could he make this claim? Through the same double-counting that Republican now decry.

The Fact Checker especially frowns on hypocrisy, and Republicans should acknowledge that they have gladly played this game before, including under President George W. Bush. Even a reformed gambling addict has to admit he once had a gambling problem.

But, on the other hand, a strong case can be made that there is no double-counting going on at all. It’s simply a case of looking at the same money at different ways. In other words, it is not double counting, but counting different things.....

....Sebelius is correct when she says the same savings is doing two things at once. Whether this is double-counting is in the eye of the beholder, but under the accounting rules that both parties have used for decades, this is considered an acceptable practice. As the debate on entitlements heats up, and new savings in Medicare are identified, the real question should be how those savings are applied, not whether the accounting is bogus.

Two Pinnochios to Republicans who keep flogging this issue without acknowledging their own past complicity.
