Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Black celebrities a generation ago like Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Curt Flood, Roberto Clemente, and of course, Harry Belafonte and his mentor Paul Robeson used their prominence not to hobnob with with the White House, but to help those picketing outside the mansions of governors and presidents, the imprisoned and oppressed. How far have we fallen since then? Now the same black celebs who wine and dine at the White House are mystifying “politics” while mouthing slogans of the far right....

OK

The massive government spending required to finance national health care would explode (INCREASE) the federal deficit with ruinous consequences for every American's standard of living.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, "Large budget deficits would reduce national saving, leading to more borrowing from abroad and less domestic investment, which in turn would depress income growth in the United States. Over time, the accumulation (INCREASE) of debt would seriously harm the economy."

Back in August, actor, singer and longtime humanitarian activist Harry Belafonte took Jay-Z, Beyonce and current black celebrities to task, declaring that they were selfish, lacking the vision of a better world or the will to help make it happen.

Beyonce's staff of publicists were quick to reply with a list of tax deductible and officially approved charities that she funds. But to tell the truth, that kind of giving, the kind that often combines public charity, public relations and big tax advantages in roughly equal parts is pretty much an accounting and PR requirement for celebrity actors and athletes. It works like this --- they're going to pay taxes anyhow, at much higher rates than with so-called “investment income.” Divert that tax money into deductible charities, and it's cash they would have paid out anyhow, but now it's combined with photo opportunities and human interest stories showcasing their personal struggles and bolstering their brand, making them more money. That's why her answer was no answer at all, it really proved what Belafonte said.

Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z are frequent guests at the White House. But Belafonte, and before him Paul Robeson went walking and talking among those organizing and demonstrating outside the White House, against big business, against the kind of established authority and privilege the Jay-Z's and Beyonce's of this generation are so delighted to be seen with. Dr. Martin Luther King was almost an outlaw, universally reviled and denounced throughout the corporate media the final year of his life, after he denounced the Vietnam war and linked the struggles against empire and economic injustice to that against racism. Harry Belafonte's work with him, and Paul Robeson's association with labor organizers and activists him didn't carry tax advantages for either of them. They walked picket lines outside the courthouses and jails where activists were tried and imprisoned. They solicited their peers to fund strategy meetings, legal expenses for movement activists. Almost none of that was tax deductible, and much of it wasn't public knowledge for years afterward.

That meant they did it out of selfless vision and love, and out of their own pockets, not to build their brands, lower their taxes or bolster their bank accounts. It cost Belafonte lots of money. It cost Muhammad Ali a year in prison. It cost Paul Robeson his career. Look it up.

Rightwing ideology is dehumanizing the President with all their myriad of names in their frustration that they can't just come right out and say "we want that n----r outta of the white house"
Conservatives aren't going to win a damn thing. Don't you hear your candidate? What's he saying today? He is agreeing with everything that the President has said!! He is not a rightwinger anymore! He just acted that way for a while, now, he said, nevermind. He is the biggest liar ever, you're the only one who refuses to see it, but the rest of the world does.
Actually, we want that Marist communist fraud out of there... and take the rest of the treasonous card-carrying communists in the Democratic Party with him.

By the way, how is it that the only alternative to the Republican Party is a political party that established its modern identity with treason and a system of lies?
And, how the hell did something like that gain any credibility whatsoever in this country?

HEY DUMBF**K!

Pew poll puts Romney ahead with one month to election

HEY, DUMBF**K!

The Pew Research Center poll released on Monday showed Romney ahead 49 to 45 among likely voters, a huge turnaround from Pew’s September survey, which showed the president ahead 51 to 43.

HEY, DUMBF**K!

This finding is significant: Pew is a well-respected polling organization and this is one of the first surveys released in which all of the participants were interviewed after the debate, which even Democrats say Romney performed better than the president in.

HEY, DUMBF**K!

In the poll, Romney made huge gains among women. Obama lead among female voters 56 percent to 38 in September, but now the two are tied at 47 percent each. White voters now favor him by 21 points, up from seven last month.

Yep, that budget certainly worked well under Bush.
BTW, Obamacare is paid for. It raises or saves money to make up for the cost.
Being a right winger, this is likely a new & foreign concept for you.

And the decline continues. Last week Jay-Z was asked at the opening of Barclays in New York about a his own political aspirations.“I don't even like the word politics,” the rapper said.“It implies something underhanded. I think we need less government.”

This is a new low, perhaps two new lows.

First, Jay-Z cannot possibly be that stupid. The word politics does not imply anything. Politics are the processes fair and unfair, just and unjust that we humans use to conduct our collective affairs for the good or otherwise. When poor people mystify “politics” as something inscrutable and irrelevant to those who hunger and thirst for justice they indulge in escapism. When rich people do it they engage in misdirection.

Secondly, Jay-Z's “we need less government” quip has long been a right wing staple, a codespeak slogan of the very rich and privileged who have in fact captured the government, but only object to “big government” when it benefits little people.

It's proof positive that Harry Belafonte was right about Jay-Z and Beyonce. It's time to look somewhere else for selfless visionaries among this generation's celebrities.

Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year old Pakistani, who was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize in 2011 for a blog she wrote under a pseudonym for the BBC and won the National Peace Prize in Pakistan and who was also honored with a school named after her was shot and killed along with two other young girls by the Taliban leaving their school.

She had chronicled life under the brutal and oppressive rule of the local faction of the Pakistani Taliban who carried out public floggings, hung dead bodies in the streets, and banned education for girls.

Does anyone really think the United States can become an isolationist country in light of this kind of evil in the world?

I know Tenzing, for one, was gung-ho about doing nothing and, therefore, allowing evil to abound because "it was none of our business". Ron Paul, too, I believe.

Absolutely unbelievable to me that some Americans have forgotten how to be the good guys and not selfish wimps.

Doesn't matter how we might have interfered with their governments in the past for the sake of world stability.

They people need supervision and our intervention precisely because they ARE the bullies of the world.

Nah...nothin' fishy here.

"The unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in September, down from 8.1% a month earlier. The drop was due to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' survey of households showing that 873,000 more people had jobs than in the previous month. That was the biggest one-month gain in more than nine years."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Almost a million jobs miraculously appear right after Obama is embarrassed in a nationally televised debate and right before the election!
