But I digress....there are about 15-18 libwhacks posting weird shit, and about 12-15 cons posting weird shit. At the end of the day, turn it off and go watch the Kardashians.
That's just more weird shit.......lifestyles of the rich and shameless.

Gleefully shook hands with the commie rat from Cuba, Raoul Castro. A real mutual admiration society.

The terrorist Mandela did not bring Apartheid to an end. Not one bit. Years of sanctions by western states led by great leaders like Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher did. Learn your history if you haven't lived it.

Is that unlike Southerns in America fleeting the war torn southern states before the Union Army occupation during the American Civil War that saw a combined 200,000 killed in 4 years?

Despite the common miscalculated opinions some of you carry there is still not a more violent society in the world than America where 12,765 residents are murdered annually and 84,376 forcible rapes are committed.

Years of sanctions by the West? Then why was Reagan's veto of the Congressional Sanctions bill necessary?

Mandela, George Washington and Abe Lincoln along with Gandhi and Rev King are the last of the world's Freedom Fighters who's work liberated millions in the last 200 plus years.

Did you only begin reading newspapers and become exposed to watching television news after 1987?

After the 86 veto override from Reagan in America Thatcher at De Clerk's request consulted him to release Mandela to maintain some degree of credibility for his crumbling government and policies to negotiate with the ANC a complete reversal of the Totalitarian regimes racial policies.

Of course in America, those social conservative southern members of Congress who believed in racial segregation supported the Totalitarian regime of South Africa and their brutal despotic ideology, lead by Strome Thurmond.

Yes and when we have to listen to LIES AND MORE LIES FROM OBAMA WE have a right to whine and moan. Or when we hear Obama blame everyone else for his failures, we have a right to moan and groan.

It was great to see the welcoming ovation given to our president, wasn't it.

Must tick off the t-bagrepubes who are ticked off by a handshake and a selfie.

There was a report in his speech, he spoke Mandela's name 8 times and spoke his own in the third person, 14 times. The massive ego of such minimal self serving individuals is one of the reasons the world And America is in trouble. That face Michelle made would have been good for six months of laughter, comedy skits, perpetual news stories and so much more if she was a Repub. She does not hide her venom that well. It was the same before 2008 and it is the same now. I believed she would have soften up a bit.

yeah, michelle didn't seem to enjoy Obama taking pictures with, and hanging out with that little cupcake blonde. But sooner or later, all the high profile black athletes and celebrities go for the blondes. Not sure why...could be for those cute curls and tight, white cheerleader pvssy, or the fact that the sistas all weigh 280, eat 8 times a day, and always smell like bacon?
