Optimism of whites in US lags blacks by big margin

Aug 1, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Log Cabin Democrat

Americans' attitudes about their economic future are sharply divided by race, with whites significantly less likely than blacks or Hispanics to think they can improve their own standard of living.

<quoted text>A pregnancy and a military operation are not analogous. I realize the term "operation" may confuse a "doctor" like you, but they don't mean the same thing.

A pregnancy doesn't occur until a fertilized embryo is implanted in the uterus. Preventing that implantation with Plan B is preventing a pregnancy from occurring; not aborting a pregnancy.

You're really just making yourself look even dumber by insisting on continuing that analogy.
I realize that, but I was trying to dumb down the concept and definition of abort for you. Apparently even that is too much for your feeble mind to handle.

I understand that. Calling it off before pregnancy occurs is still aborting pregnancy, however.

Lol, says the idiot who can not understand the analogy.

<quoted text>Sheeple is unwell. He does not want to address the problems blacks have created all by themselves. They have shown the world how violent they can be. On the other hand, they make good warriors so maybe we can enlist all the blacks in the ghetto and send them over to Syria at obama's bidding.
Great idea!

That has got to be THE stupidest thing I have ever read from your warped view of the world Mr Sheep.
But then you claim that freight trains are not driven by electricity too.
What's next from the world according to Mr Sheep? Thought crime?
Why should women have the right to vote if they aren't under the same draft obligation as men?

So you'd have no problem with women voting to go to war all the time, knowing they will never be in danger themselves?

No. If women have the same right to vote as men, then they should have the same obligation to sign up for the draft as men.

I have the enlistment document (DD Form 4/1) up on another window; feel free to cite the section or paragraph which states women are required not to get pregnant for the length of their contract.

Here's a hint- it's NOT in there ANYWHERE.

Seriously, are you unable to find info on your own without links from others?

You do not trust the Huffington Post? Strange.
Funny, your posts are chock full of your words claiming to know all about what I think, and that you know me.
So you think because it says Citibank in the URL that it means it has to be a valid Citibank website?

Yep, that's how the scammers get people.

I know what some of your beliefs are from your posts. That's enough to not trust any link you post.

No offense.

I'd give you a link, but why waste my time.
Ummm, no it's not.

As I said, I have the DD Form 4/1 up on another window- feel free to site the section/paragraph/sentence which says a woman may not get pregnant during her contract.

THOUSANDS of women get pregnant while in the military. If was prohibited in their contract, then they would all be prosecuted and booted out of the military.

You idiots simply don't know what you're talking about as usual. I'd suggest you actually talk to someone in the military or do a bit of research before making such asses of yourselves.

<quoted text>Thank you for proving without the slighest doubt that you will not look at the facts when it hits you square in the nose.

Even blacks know they have this problem except some of them want to blame whites because they can't stay in a committed relationship after they knock their bitch up.
I always look at facts.

I always ignore racist interpretation of those same facts.

<quoted text>Time to throw the bull$hit flag again! We raised five children and my wife stayed at home for 14 years while raising them. We were not wealthy. We saw the importance of rearing our kids free from daycare nannies and the alien affections garnered by them.
Our kids a highly successful and are...wait for it...self-reliant! That's right! They don't require adult supervision nor the approval and aid of the federal government! Gasp! Yes, they can succeed without Uncle Sam's tender loving handouts.
I am amazed at how many households I see where there is a single child whose parents are approaching retirement just as the kid is starting college. The kid had everything done for them from these "caring" parents and yet fail in college because they are now required to do something for themselves. We know of two that never even owned a car! Because the parents are control freaks.
My kids not only owned cars but they bought and paid for them from their own labor. Heck, my 18n yr old daughter just bought her own new car yesterday without us co-signing.
Our eldest son bought his first house at 21 on his own.
I could go on and on about how the facts have been proven out over and over again based upon morals and work ethic and yet you libbies just turn to jealous name calling and ignore the truth.
Life is not based on feelings. It's based upon acting in a resposible fashion and then feelings of satisfaction bear fruit. Libbies act on feelings and then are satisfied when they can control others.
But, thanks for proving you can't debate based on facts alone.
I'm glad it worked out for you, but for the majority of Americans they can't make ends meet without both parents working.

Yes, it's their choice to had kids.
Yes, it's their choice to work.

But we don't get to live in your fantasy world of everyone pulling themselves up their jockstraps and walking to school barefoot in a snowstorm uphill both ways, and then becoming millionaires without anyone ever helping them.

Then they must have the same obligation to register for the draft as men.

So NOW you want special treatment because you're a woman?

That's funny. You just got through saying that there is no actual proof and that you do not open links that contain the proof.
Now you say there is actual proof. Make up your mind Mr Sheep.
Are you now also willing to accept that you are wrong concerning freight train locomotives? They are in fact driven by electricity.
I noticed you avoided that fact like the plague too when I caught you in yet another, uh,'mistake'.
I said you offered proof of a couple of specific instances where employers violated the law. I was able to verify that independently based on the info you provided without opening the links directly.

Of course freight trains are driven by electricity, but it's HOW that electricity is generated which matters. Most locomotives in the US are diesel.

So you are saying the stat that shows 72% of black children are born to single mothers should lead to the "interpretation" that black fathers tend to hang around to rear their children?
The stat that shows black mothers are more likely than other races to have multiple children by multiple fathers should lead to the "interpretation" that black fathers are more likely to be monogamous?
The leftist puppet masters brainwashed you well!
Why do you feel a need to interpret the statistics into something which they DO NOT SAY EITHER WAY?

If you want to know how monogamous black fathers are, then look for a statistic on the percentage of black fathers who are monogamous.

If you want to know if black fathers are sticking around to raise their kids, then look for a statistic on the percentage of unmarried black fathers raising their children.

It's simply lazy to interpret a statistic to say something which it simply does not say.

Of course if your intent is to make assumptions to back up your racist opinions, then I can see why you tend to interpret facts into something they aren't.

Now that you have been put in your place by a number of posters, you have resorted to childish tactics like this.
1. Providing you a lesson in social history does not suggest that I am living in the past.
2. I am well aware of women's roles in the military. I have no problem so long as it does not cost taxpayers more money and/or harm the safety of others.
3. Who is complaining? Pointing out your hypocrisy, bigotry and racism is entertaining.
So now posting facts is "childish tactics"?

Wow, you're just all over the place.

Must be that time of the month.....

Women these days don't get equal treatment...they get preferential treatment. And politically correct asshats like you promote it with your anti-male liberal/marxist agenda.
For that and many other things, fuck you!
No different than when a guy breaks his leg playing hoopies and gets shipped out and the unit is not gapped a billet.

I agree women don't get equal treatment; they are still discriminated against in the military and in the civilian world.

The ONLY preferential treatment they get is not having to register for the draft and going into combat.

Change the wording or the statement if you wish. It only serves to spotlight your backpedalling. It also serves to show you have once again been spanked in debate. I see a trend.
Oh please, the only thing you're constantly spanking is your own monkey.

As a "doctor" you should know that can lead to chaffing and blisters....
