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

Ben Carson being audited came from Barack Administration. That's not a "white people problems". It's a Barack problem with his Republican opposition. Especially one who is a Black Republican.
And Allen West being called an uncle Tom sounds like a black people problem.
A black liberal people problem against a Black Republican.
And your statement: "Just think of they were really black" is an idiotic imbecilic problem.
Sheer stupid ignorance.

Ben Carson also indicates he has been subjected to hate mail and had been audited. Allen West also has said he was subjected to name calling like Uncle Tom and sell out.
Herman Cain has repeatedly spoken before Koch Brothers-funded, John Birch Society-linked groups, including those that are in favor of rolling back such basic civil rights era gains as integrated schools. In addition to the raucous applause they received CPAC, Cain and Allen West, a conservative black Republican who was elected to Congress last year, both legitimated a deep hostility to President Obama that is rooted in “birtherism” and crazed paranoid narratives about the tyranny and terror supposedly unleashed by America’s first black president.

As I and others have suggested elsewhere, these are narratives that are premised on a belief that a black man who happens to be president is de facto illegitimate. And, of course, there’s no shortage of black conservatives who make a living among the pundit classes as human parrots for the right –popular for their novelty and unwilling to offer sustained critiques of policies that may, in fact, be deleterious to communities of color and the common good.

In my original essay, I referred to Cain and other black conservatives as “race minstrels” and “mascots” for the white conservative imagination. I stand by this observation. Whenever Cain and others have an opportunity to engage in “real talk” among their ideological compatriots — to make a public, critical intervention against the racial hostility that drives contemporary American conservatism — they instead stand mute or enable this hostility. When the opportunity to slap down the notion that black people with whom Republicans disagree are “brainwashed” or (in a disgusting abuse of the shared history and legacy of chattel slavery)“on the plantation,” the Herman Cains of the world encourage this lie as one more way of signaling that that they are actually the “authentic” voices of Black America.

This is why I often playfully refer to black conservatives as “garbage pail kids.” They found themselves political outliers in the black community because they could not answer the question,“Where is the love?” Thus, the contemporary faces of black conservatism found lucre showered upon them as they buck-danced and cakewalked on the metaphorical stage of white conservatism. This was a Faustian bargain. But it paid well, and black conservatives found themselves in the company of friends.

Then, on a bank errand, I listened to Rush Limbaugh who said mathematical models were all a hoax.

Without modeling, how dod they predict a snow storm that had not yet formed?

The state of our union is scary.
The unemployed know it, and have known it with piercing bitterness for too many years. Nearly half of the American labor force without a four-year college degree is not working.
Families know it, because in real terms the wages breadwinners are bringing home are pretty much where they were 40 years ago.
The 47 million Americans on food stamps know it.
Chief executives know it. They see the disappointing numbers for capital investment, which mean bleaker prospects for their companies – and fewer jobs.
Economists and historians know it, and are puzzled why, despite all the fiscal pump priming, we are in the midst of the weakest recovery since World War II.
[See a collection of political cartoons on the economy.]
Foreign observers know it, though given their own problems in Europe, China and Japan, they still hope the train arriving at platform No. 1 is the same American locomotive that pulled economies shattered by World War II to record prosperity.
Politicians of both parties know it very well, but they also know we have impasse. Nothing gets done.
The state of the union is scary.
The American economy has little steam. Real annual GDP growth, adjusted for inflation, has run only around 1.3 percent over the last eight years. Some, mainly in the Republican party, were worried that the monetary and fiscal stimulus would be too much, that the economy would overheat into inflation. Hardly! It is only moderately larger – by 5.5 percent – than it was at its peak more than five years ago. As John Makin, an economist and resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute wrote earlier this month, "After the 2008 financial crisis, U.S. GDP per capita actually fell, at an average rate of -1 percent year-over-year, from January 2009 to September 2013."
Indeed, so nearly comatose is the patient that a leading opponent of outgoing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's monetary easing, Narayana Kocherlakota, president of the notoriously cagey Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, has changed his mind. Last week he told The New York Times he now favors stronger action, just as the Fed is poised to do less.
News Flash! "The congressional GOP has smothered a more rapid economic recovery"

From the beginning of Obama's presidency, the GOP sought to block measures that a wide swath of economists agreed would provide help to boost the economy and bring down unemployment. This obstructionism has been a constant theme throughout the past four years, and it continues today...

The facts are simply that congressional Republicans have consistently hamstrung efforts that a large consensus of economists agree would have provided crucial help in lowering American unemployment. Specifically, they have objectively weakened the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), repeatedly filibustered routine extensions of emergency unemployment benefits, blocked aid to state governments, filibustered infrastructure investment, used extreme legislative vehicles like refusing to follow precedent on the typically pro forma votes to raise the debt ceiling to extract more economically damaging government spending cuts, blocked passage of a majority of the American Jobs Act (AJA), demanded counterproductive offsets to fiscal stimulus, and attacked the Federal Reserve’s expansion of the monetary base and other policy responses intended to lower unemployment..."

unfortunately, Americans think insurance means pre-paid medical care....
Catastrophic insurance is for miserly people who rarely have the funds necessary to pay thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs before full coverage kicks in. Smart, responsible adults choose to be prepared by pre-paying for their medical are in the event of a catastrophic event. Those who chose to gamble rely on bankruptcy as their lifeline.

not necessarily... i used to have that when i had to purchase insurance on my own...but i was young and healthy. i had great credit and money saved. i could easily cover the 10, 000 before my insurance kicked in if i had a bad accident or health issue. it covered one check up a year and one emergency room visit per year 90%...

pretty good plan actually for a young guy.
