<quoted text> He's the only one that can answer that, but by his actions it seems so, Mrs. Obama seems to be the same way from her writing in her college days and things she has said in public "first time she was proud of this country", both friends of rev. Wright, certain quotes in his book, etc. It appears he has been indoctrinated at very young age. Affirmative Action has brought them both a long way, it seems both still have a chip on their shoulder.
I totally agree and they care less about other Americans.

<quoted text> What does that mean? You really have no answer. I am for freedom and common sense foreign policy. You are not. And that is drivel to you. You are therefore evil. Powerful evil. You will kill others for your personal selfish desires. And you do. Washing your hands of it while blaming others.
As teabaggers defend George Bush for invading the wrong country?

As republicans created, passed and signed the "Patriot" Act, the most destructive legislation ever to limit your "freedom" and violate the constitution?

Created Homeland Security and TSA, two more worthless republican initiatives.

I only killed one person in my life but only for my selfish family's behalf.

They wanted to live.

Poor teabagger.

judging a person by their character is a simple concept. why make that simple concept so confused? is affirmative action judging one by their character? obviously not!
"creating a climate" where everyone can realize their dreams not so simple. you have the right to pursue happiness in this country. you have no right to have your dreams realized....
Correct.

However I feel affirmative action is wrong because even if the minority has less qualifications, the minority is chosen, it's WAY outdated and the result is reverse discrimination.

The best student, job applicant, bid, contract and track record should prevail.
