I know most of you SURMISED that I am white - I thought I'd point it out to support my statements.
I am a moderate conservative (which I have stated many times). I vote for any person who most closely aligns with my beliefs and vision for our country. We do have that right and obligation. However, because our president is one-half black, racism has become the deflection when we attempt to discuss issues and prefer other viewpoints than his.
Just because I would vote for Condi Rice or certain others, doesn't mean you have to agree with me. I don't expect you to -- you are a liberal and we, by nature, disagree on what we believe is best for our country. But to believe blacks have been brainwashed simply because they disagree with you, is to belittle yourself.
Each of us has a brain. Brains are similar. Our bodies function similarly. Calling me a liar is just as racist as the rest of your remarks. You call me a liar because you don't believe I would vote for a minority. You don't know me. Of course I vote regardless of color. We all should.
It's obvious you ONLY vote based on color. I'm sorry you have denied your brain the ability to look at all viewpoints, rather than just castigating those with whom you've been told you disagree. Obama and the mainstream media are telling you how to think -- and you're letting them.
I understand you have a different culture, and I embrace diversity. I appreciate differing viewpoints and do sometimes change my mind when I'm given an intelligent alternative. Just because my culture is different than yours, doesn't mean I don't have valid viewpoints. If you think that I can't have a valid viewpoint because my culture is different, then you are most definitely a racist.
I have voted in every election since I have been able to vote. I have voted for many persons of color simply because I believe in their vision for my community, my city, my country. I have voted across party lines, too, many times.
Pretend you are blind, and just listen. I'm guessing that won't change your mind, but you might be able to at least consider a different viewpoint even if you determine you still don't agree with it. I would appreciate the fact that you listened. Everyone hears, not not everyone listens. They are very different things.
List Jackson...the only thing I like about you is your screen name. That is my dogs name. the rest of all that bull shit your talking is blah blah blah blah blah. You are a racist, lying ass pos and you don't fool any of us.

Nice try. Next time ..."Sprinkle it with a pinch of truth" Otay???

You apparently are the goddam idiot. Trying to explain shit to you is like trying to teach Spanish to a Gold Fish! Geeesh!
Apparently, YOU trying to explain something to anyone is like trying to teach Russian to Goldfish.
Firstly, you don't even know Russian, which is a direct analogy to you knowing anything about anything coming out of your mouth.

Now, please tell us why you think the TEA Party is anti-black when there are a significant number of TEA Party black candidates?

Perhaps you need a lesson in US politics... a lesson that includes facts, of course.

Wasn't there a court order prohibiting you from owning dogs?

How about you identify the inaccuracy, then provide to us the correction to that inaccuracy.

Got a problem there, don't you?

Here's the comparison again, for your reference when you give us your argument why these comparisons aren't accurate:
Hitler:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Sought revenge for a lost war.
Democrats:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Seek revenge for losing the Cold War.
So, where are the inaccuracies?
Ahh yes when you run out of talking points revert to the Hitler comparison.

Annoying when somebody responds with the same thing over and over again isn't it?

Workers at a Michigan battery plant built with a $150 million federal stimulus grant but never opened played games and watched movies while their wages were paid for by U.S. taxpayers, according to a government report.

South Korea-based LG Chem, which used the grant money to build a factory that was supposed to make batteries for the Chevy Volt, has paid back $842,000 in wages it improperly billed to the government, but still has no plans to start production in the facility or return the grant. The company makes Volt batteries at another plant in South Korea.

And notice, this bullshit you're talking, not one thing you said can prove my statement is false about West, Love, or Cain...

Very typical of neo-con bobbleheads to just babble on and make no point.

What you read is what I concluded after studying the Democrats. Here it is again:

Consumed with racial hatred.
Sought revenge for a lost war.
Democrats:

When the f**k have you ever heard Fox News ever say something like the Democrats committed treason throughout the Cold War and were on the side of the communists?
Put up or shut up. Where's the link, fatass?
You know you'll have to come see us.
Hopefully, it will be because you aren't looking for something to steal. Perhaps you want to learn something about becoming self-reliant.
..... I almost got that out without busting out with laughter.
See you when you get here.
All you have is bullshit quips and stupid jokes...

NOTHING of substance rests in that bobblehead of yours. You've proven to be one of the biggest redneck idiots here ever.

Hitler compared to the Democrats??!??!?
Are you fkn serious????

And you have nothing on West, Love, or Cain that proves them to be a credible candidate or political game changer...Why? Because they are not and your stuck using them as dumb fkn talking points, which is all you can muster up in that lame brain of yours.

Dammit, boy...When are you gonna get your shit together?

PS: still waiting...

Let's check that math...
58,992 divided by 52 weeks = 1134.46 (1135)

Is that a liberal fact?

And teabagger fact gets 2,000?
