Right, Obama has fundementally changed the USA forever for the Blacks here in US and why they dont like Obama either which is because he proved that there is no reason why the blacks are in the situation they are in economically & socially and that they choose to be in the situation and Obama put Jessie Jackson out of a job here in playing the race card which the night of obama's election win Jessie Jackson and his other racist knew they were in trouble with the race card.

Remember when Cassius Clay had to stand at the back of the bus?
Now the blacks are in the white house.
Get with the programme.
This all happened without a shot being fired in protest.
Guns are just a joke and have no political influence in the advanced world.
Hell. the armed forces will be with the President.

to the Blacks Obama is not Black because his mother was white and that is a fact which the Black Blacks dont care for, like Jessie Jackson who said that he would have like to cut Obama's Nuts off for talking down the Blacks as he said when he thought he was off camera and the microphone was off and that showed Jessie Jackson's character and he has been the blacks front man on civil rights for years.

Obama was raised by white grand parents and went to a private school in Hawaii after being legally adopted by an Indonesian. Yep, that sounds like the American black experience to me. LOL

Yep, give a black kid an environment with strong gun control like Hawaii, and treat him like a white boy then he is as good or better than a white boy. Even without a father figure.

Try telling that to them. The people who try to better themselves in certain places are chastised by their own community being called an Oreo (a cookie that's black on the outside and white on the inside), a sell out, an Uncle Tom, and so on. Conservative blacks with that message are subjected to all kinds of harassment and deamination, and name calling.

Obama's father figure, Frank Davis, was a communist and probably his real father. LOL

I wonder what fat Geprgie Zimmerman is more apprehensive about?
Being found guilty or being released and waiting for the gunnuts to square up on the street.

He is between a rock and a hard place.

Without that firearm he probably would not have these worries.

Don't worry, he will have more than enough money to hire an army to protect him like politicians do. Once he is rich Sharpton and Jackson will invite him over to dinner,( as long as he drops a few dollars in the offering plate).

Yeah, I expect the public purse is being stretched a bit after Gabby Gifford had her mind opened. Politicians must be feeling the fear.

I guess that is freedom with the gun. Bodyguards are cheap. George fancied himself as a type of bodyguard once. It is a shame he is so fat now. That has got to take years off his life.

I guess running out like a hero with a gun is not that smart of an idea.
Especially near home. Damn anyone could do a drive by with a bushmaster and oversize magazine.

It might be some gunnut point of honour. The bodyguards wont mind.

Which body are you referring to? The one in the womb or the one carrying it?

Is pregnancy a disease?

Life is like AIDS. Sexually transmitted and ultimately fatal.
