"Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them."
- Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

madest: As for Mary Frances Berry she was absolutely right.

Say wha?

She was saying CIVIL RIGHTS DO NOT APPLY TO WHITE MEN. Therefore if you are saying she`s right, you are also agreeing that WHITE MEN HAVE NO CIVIL RIGHTS which makes you a moron.

Also, last word.

@madest:

Get rid of all the crazy military spending too.

I don`t support military all over the world. They should all be here, and in the countries of the people who request our presence if they cannot support themselves.

Welfare is not a trap for me. Welfare is something there for me that temporarily helps me as I look to better myself or my situation. There are a vast majority of families who live their whole lives on welfare of some kind.

You lose your job, you should get Food Stamps, and unemployment. If you are actively looking for a job, and can prove that, you keep it. If you aren`t you should lose it.

Call it a "Get off you ass" clause.

While I appreciate all the... uhh... enthusiasm on in this comments section, it`s exactly the reason I just can`t care anymore. With a few exceptions, politicians are functionally retarded. It`s gone so far into supporting your party and not your country that there is no politician I can trust to run the country.

Okay I read your link, and I must say...

I see you trollin`. I hatin`.

He wasn`t being racist any more than Biden and Hillary were, if you wanna say they weren`t.

He was being satirical and saying welfare is a trap, which it is.

He was saying that families growing up on welfare, teach their kids to live on welfare, which they do.

Get out from under your white bred rock man. The welfare state destroys productivity, and it destroys the workforce.

If we cut welfare (in all forms) down to pre-Carter levels, unemployment would drop like Hoffa wearing his favorite shoes while swimming.

So you`re passing judgment on a whole movement over mistakes of the past? Rectified mistakes?

Okay. I can play the game.

"You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent."
-VP Joe Biden

"Mahatma Gandhi ran a gas station down in Saint Louis."
-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton

"Blacks and Hispanics are too busy eating watermelons and tacos" to learn how to read and write."
- Mike Wallace, CBS News

"I`ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
- President Lyndon B. Johnson

"Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them."
- Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

Shall I go on?

I`m not taking away anyone`s freedoms, directly. I`m saying that people should have to EARN their rights, instead of just having everything HANDED to them.

And if you`re willing to fight for your rights... Then you`ve probably earned them.

One of my personal idea policies is that EVERYONE should have to spend a small amount, no more than maybe a year, two at most, taking some form of military training.

It would teach everyone self-defense, which would help curb violent crime, it would teach people personal responsibility, and it would teach people HOW TO USE GUNS LIKE SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN IN THEIR SKULL...

F*ck that sh*t. I never said I was anything. Check my profile.

I have my own viewpoints on things, based on my complete and utter lack of faith in humanity in general.

Screw your politics and "liberal vs. conservative" BS.

I`m militaristic. As far as I`m concerned, you`re a maggot until you prove you`re not a maggot.

It`s not not even that difficult to prove you`re not a maggot, but most people don`t even want to put forth that minimal effort.

And that`s why people are worthless to me.

This is a conservative viewpoint. I believe Crakr was just trollin` you to make you show some non-liberalness.

Last time I checked, it was a liberal stance to say Johnny the retard is equal to super brainiac Bob.

It just isn`t so. I agree that most people who vote are freaking pathetic small brains, but they have rights just like us on the other side of Darwin`s spectrum.

And can I just ask what`s wrong with natural selection?

Some people are f*cking idiots. I`d go as far as to say MOST people are f*cking idiots.

And why is that? Because people in this society are coddled, raised on a pedestal from birth like they`re something important, whether they`re good for anything or not. They`re ALLOWED to be f*cking idiots, because hey, everyone`s equal, right? Even the worthless.

I`m an advocate for the idea that people should actually have to CLIMB their way to the top, instead of having everything HANDED to them like it is anymore.

Everyone`s equal my ass. The man who`s worked his ass off for an entire life of some 60 years should be considered equal to the 18-year-old punk who`s been waited on hand and foot all his life?

F*ck that. No one`s given motivation to CLIMB anymore, so society`s full of trash.

[quote]Unfortunately classifying some citizens into a `second category` and blaming the country`s problems on `them` is the route toward fascism.[/quote]
I never blamed anything on anyone. I`m saying that there are some people who are qualified to have an opinion through education or experience (Yes, I did in fact say both. Read my comment, including the parts you don`t want to see because they don`t support your POV), and some people who are NOT, because they don`t know enough.

Also, consider that in general, someone who goes through the education in a subject tends to want to go into a field of work surrounding that subject. In other words, they GAIN EXPERIENCE. No one`s born with experience. But you also don`t gain experience by giving opinions you aren`t qualified to give, or by doing things you have no idea how to do.

Either all citizens are equal under the law or you`re living in a fascist state.

Having a higher education doesn`t add weight to anyone`s opinion, Practical experience (aka actually working) can be the best teacher. There are a lot of college and university graduates that can`t find jobs right now because they have zero experience.

You need to learn more history, Because your ignorance (no offense meant) on the topic is helping it repeat itself.

(Damn the character limit)

It`s not elitism if it`s true. There are people who know what they`re talking about in a topic, and people who don`t, or know a little.

The people in the first group are the ones whose opinions hold the most weight because they are the ones that are based on the most facts and the most research (or experience) into the subject matter.

Unfortunately, most people fall into that second category. A hobbyist isn`t going to know as much as someone who`s dedicated their entire LIFE to the subject. And someone who doesn`t even know about the subject... Well, why would their opinion matter anyway?

I use my analogies again. Your transmission goes out. Would you rather have it fixed by a lifetime mechanic, or your next door neighbor who works on his car on the weekends?

It`s not elitism.

I don`t know sh*t about most things (history, for example. I`m terrible at history), and I know for a fact that in those topics, my opinion isn`t valid. If someone asked me a question about those, I would direct them towards someone who knows the subject matter better.

In my case, I WOULD rate software, like anti-viruses and browsers.

I WOULDN`T rate the presidents, because I don`t know enough about them and what they did. I wouldn`t rate particular car manufacturers because I have`t driven enough vehicles to know the difference.

(In the case of that last example, I hate all the morons that prefer one manufacturer over another because they`ve driven ONE car from either, or because they`ve heard reviews, etc.)

I know what I know. I don`t know, and won`t be opinionated about, what I don`t know.

If you can`t admit the same, than all you`re doing is showing that you suffer from an inferiority complex.

I`m already graduating a year late because I don`t listen to what the teachers say, but that`s beside the point...

I`m speaking from life experience. Most people are f*cking STUPID.

I`m not saying they can`t have opinions, I`m just saying that most aren`t nearly as valid as others.

There are people better qualified, either through experience or education, to answer questions than an average person on the street.

pyrrhios: None of it was `faked`. The videos were edited down to ten minutes or less because that is the time limit imposed by YouTube.

Acorn is/was a corrupt organization and their workers have admitted to filing fake absentee ballots to steal elections. That`s court testified & reported FACT.

Yes, but asking you what you think is also not a popular poll of the people.

And I`m pretty sure that someone who`s dedicated their ENTIRE LIFE to studying the presidents and their actions is more qualified to say who did a better job than you.

Once again, an analogy. I work with computers. As a hobby, I work on cars. Someone else has worked on vehicles their entire life. Gone to school for it and everything.

Who would you consider more qualified to answer a question about the transmission in your car? If you had to choose between two parts for your car, who would you ask about which is better?

Calling elitism is bullsh*t. The fact is, there are people out there that are MUCH better qualified to make an opinion than your average person. Cakr`s just pissed `cause,the odds say, he`s not one of them.

Why? It was astronomical stupidity compounded with even more astronomically 5h177y timing. What those women were doing was just as idiotic as a doctor cracking jokes about medical malpractice while there`s a line of patients standing outside his door. Acorn lost face because of the comments those women made and are now defunct. What followed after those videos were released was sensationalism (I don`t mean solely conservative sensationalism, even the liberals and mainstream joined in).

a quick note to anyone yabbering on about russia being close to alaska-
you are correct.


however, russia is a strange country, and doesn`t put to much in the way of people, or cities, or concern as to anything going on in Siberia.

moscow is closer to where I live, on the EAST coast, and if there is any foreign relations to be had with russia, Moscow is where it would happen.

ya know, kinda how even though alaska is part of America, noone outside of alaska really gives much concern to it?

so yeah, total fail.

and no, im not an obama supporter, cause im not a democrat.

but i can tell you this- i`m AGAINST palin.

Okay madest. Watched your link from beginning to end.

I think it has more to do with your views, than these people`s actual intelligence. In all seriousness. You`re calling them stupid because they do not believe what you do, and that`s un-American.

That whole video is people speaking out based on their opinion. We have the right in this country to form an opinion. I would never blast you for yours. It`s when you come spewing biased facts that I call you out on it.

You say Obama is a good president, fine. I don`t think so. These are opinions. When you say "No he is the best and it`s a fact because of this story from Huffington or MSNBC." Then I begin to question.

Those who you call `uneducated` are people that`ve had to work for a living and learned by experience more than most professors.

By my direct observation, I`ve seen a simple farmer with only 8th grade education, Be more knowledgeable about plants than a biology professor.

Life experience can count for more than any university degree. Both my aunt and uncle were hired at the beginning of the first computer revolution. Both only had high school diplomas, But they each learned `on the job` and became computer programmers and eventually senior system analysts, One for the Federal Reserve Bank, the other for Angelica.

[quote]That a far cry from a popular poll of the people.[/quote]
A) Politics should NEVER be a popularity contest. Rating government officials should NEVER be based on who had the most support, but on who actuall did the best job.

B) A popular poll by the people would end up being divided between party lines, and from there be based on what presidents people LIKED the most, as opposed to which actually did the best job.

C) A fair amount of the American population has NO IDEA what half the presidents did, which would skew the results even further.

So yeah, a "popular poll of the people" wouldn`t work. I`m not saying everyone`s a bunch of idiots, I`m saying that most of the American people don`t know enough to have a valid opinion. It would be like me trying to tell someone what`s wrong with their car when I only know about tires.

And whether YOU know everything or not, YOU aren`t a popular poll of the people either.

Thanks for proving my point about your condescending attitude toward Republicans.

There are a lot of "Educated Idiots" in our colleges and universities that`ve never held a job outside of academia. Just because someone has a PhD by their name doesn`t mean they know everything. It only means they may know a lot about a very limited topic. In other words, Most of them are very specialized nerds, That likely would never make it in the real world.

So...Andre Bauer is basically saying poor people are equivalent to stray animals? What a lovely man...He can go f*ck himself. I seriously hope he loses all his money and has to rely on welfare to live.

And you know what? The main reason that the schools that have a higher percentage of free or reduced lunch kids probably has low test scores, is because the school itself is poor. I went to a school where 99% of the children were economically disadvantaged, me included. We didn`t have enough chairs, or books, or teachers for kids. They never get enough funding, and the hilarious part? If you get low test scores, you get LESS funding, if you get high test scores, you get more funding. So its like...if you keep getting low test scores because your school barely has anything, and then you don`t get more funding, you are just stuck in a never-ending circle of "fail". Its BS.

Example of promoting racism?

Eric Holder stated that the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation suit was unfounded, and he recommended that it be dismissed, and Obama supported his decision.

New Black Panther Party

Members of this group stood out in front of a polling place in Philly, and told white voters and black voters alike, that if they did not vote for Obama, they would be beaten. All the while holding police batons in their hands!

As for the smearing, that goes on with both sides. Democrats are still campaigning against Bush for God`s sake. Most of the message I hear from the right, is more like "Okay. They are mucking it up. Vote for us and we won`t."

I say no incumbents. Replace EVERYONE, regardless of party. If a Dem is the best for the job, vote in a Dem. If a Rep is best, vote in a Rep. <

What we care about is if someone has a better plan. It`s not enough to attack the guy`s plan, you have to make clear, give them cute little names, competing plans else, we know you just don`t like having lost.

To me, what won is 2008 was:
Press: "What will you do about fuel prices?"
McCain: "The highway maintenance is paid for by fuel tax. Regulation the price will hurt the roads..."
Obama: "The price of fuel has self adjusted but, if it gets too high, we`ll regulate it..."

Which of those two people is in touch with reality?

What examples do you use to say the he promotes racism?

About the one term thing: The strong competition failed to take note of something in the 2008 election sequence. The people that lost by the largest margins had the biggest smear campaigns.
Places that should be major R territory voted up medical marijuana.
Two upsets that come to my mind are one R senator who lost her seat after accusing her opponent of being an atheist because atheists raised money for her and, later, the Houston candidate that brought up that his opponent is a lesbian.
So far, the GOP has spent more time calling the guy a socialist than presenting competing plans.

The world changed. We don`t care if the guy has socialist styled views (Canada has some very nice social policies. GB, too.)

Republicans and Democrats have had there best and worst apples as presidents.
Considering that the worst have already been mentioned now time for the best of both parties:
Teddy Roosevelt: Anthracite Coal Strike, Trust busting, Conservation. FDR: Leadership during WW2 (rated #1).

These according to the 2010 Siena poll.

The second one you mentioned: Wrote the book on incompetency.
Warren G. Harding (a Republican mind you): Wrote the book on executive corruption.

Obama won`t even come close to the latter.

michaelcsr: Bush was nowhere near the worst president ever, And I doubt most Republicans believe that he was.

The top 3 worst ever in my humble opinion, Jimmy Carter, James Buchanan, and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Obama will never be the monster Republicans make him out to be, and he wil NEVER live up to the savior the Democrats try to make him. Only one thing is for sure. Even Republicans now consider Bush to be the worst president we ever had. But, only now that he`s not in office anymore.

Woodrow Wilson: Wilson’s two-volume book, “A History of the American People”, was so racially biased that D.W. Griffith quoted the sitting president’s writings in his 1915 silent film, The Birth of a Nation.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Headed up and implemented one of the most horrible racist policies of the 20th Century, The Japanese Internment Camps during World War II.

Robert Byrd: Former member of, And "Kleagle" of, The Ku Klux Klan.

Personally I hate the republicans and the democrats equally. They`re both rife with corruption and disgustingly incompetent. For democracy to really work, we need more than just two choices. I`m tired of picking the lesser of two evils.

I knew that last detail CrakrJak (and I wasn`t saying it was not passed by a party line vote), I was saying the Healthcare bill sold to the American people not by the emotions you stated.

As for Global Warming it IS happening (don`t tell me otherwise) we know we ARE contributing to it we don`t know how much though.

Cajun247: It was a party line vote and you should know it. In fact, Thirty-four members of the Democrat party joined all the House`s Republicans in voting against the healthcare bill.

madest: Racism is a two-way street, Everyone is a little bit racist and it comes down to upbringing.

The problem comes when a white guy tries to use sarcasm to demonstrate reverse racism and the `uncle tom` insults hurled at conservative black people. Williams was trying to illustrate absurdity by being absurd, But because he`s white everyone automatically assumes he`s racist.

The race card has been thrown around way too loosely recently, Anyone that opposes Obama`s policies is a racist, Anyone that supports the AZ law is racist, Anyone that`s in the Tea Party is racist.

People are becoming aware that the liberals are crying wolf at every opportunity and eventually that will lead to people ignoring them completely.

@CrakrJak

The Stimulus bill was passed by the majority of the Demacratic and Republican caucuses in both the House and Senate.

The Healthcare bill was sold using anger and frustration towards the healthcare companies. If anything the Republicans were using fear to stop its passage.

"Democrats sell Hope.

Republicans sell Fear.

It`s a lot easier to sell fear."

Sometimes things you say are so spot on I want to compliment / punch you in the face.

"Just trying to be fair here."

There will be NONE OF THAT in our political system, sir. Fairness requires working from the same facts. Its far too easy for Americans of any political persuasion to not hear things they don`t want to hear. I read FoxNews daily if only to understand what Republicans are getting worked up over today (or refusing to see).

Our politics is so polarized, we`re not even talking to each other anymore, we just talk past each other.

I HAVE A NEW THEORY - I call it the "Back to the Future political reasoning paradox." We`re all logical people, but at some point in the past, due to LACK OF TRUE FACTS, we end up making a different conclusion in the chain of reasoning and - BOOM! Obama is a God / Terrorist.

Didn`t research much into that, didja?

The vehicle they used to cross was amphibious. As in, it could move across both land and water. And they had to move across water multiple times.

It doesn`t freeze over, large chunks of ice get stuck in the shallow waters, making it possible to walk and jump from ice chunk to ice chunk.

As long as they`re close enough together and your target doesn`t decide to float away...

@Buiadh: From what? Your socialism? Your liberalism? I see nothing wrong with this.

@brainball: Since when does it matter the race? You mean to say there are no black republicans? The only reason that there are more black democrats is that democratic policy favors those with lower incomes by programs such as welfare and black people tend to live disproportionately to whites in lower income areas....

That was the begging of the youtube age in politics, the coining of the term "Macaca moment," and the end of unrestricted public rallies.

How many press conferences, with unrestricted questions, has Sarah Palin given since she began running as VP in 2008?

ZERO.

I don`t have a political affiliation. As far as I`m concerned both sides are full of lying bastards, each with his/her hand in a money-pot of some kind. The right just bothers me more because it tends to be filled with hateful bigots who want the world to be run by straight white males. I`m sure there are plenty on the left who are the same way, they just tend to hide it better.

Politics isn`t about serving the public anymore, its just another way to make money.

I know, good. But the right flipped out last week when the NAACP said elements of the Tea Party were racist, pulling out the time honored Pee Wee Herman Defense - I know you are but what are we???

I`m happy the Tea Baggers are rooting out the racists, but they sure seem attracted to the Tea Party. This dude was NOT some fringe activist. He was the Chairman of the Tea Party Express, the group with the full size Tour Bus that went around the country holding rallies, the bus we`ve all seen pictures of.

The "Tea Party" itself may not be overtly racist, but damn if you can`t count on some racists showing up at the rallies. And if this dude was the lead organizer of one of the more influential Tea Party groups, you can`t tell me people didn`t know his views on race by now.

Last fall he had also previously called Obama an "Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief," yet when his bus rolled in town people flocked!

The BEST part of that quote was that it was in response to NAACP claims that some Tea Party types are racist.

Nope, nothing racist in calling colored people lazy welfare mooches who refuse to work, want big screen TVs in every room and long for the days of slavery because then they wouldn`t have to think for themselves. Nope, nothing racist in the Tea Party.

"This is all the left can come up with ? Pathetic."

No, heres one better:

TEA PARTY EXPRESS: "We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don`t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!"

"Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government "stop raising our taxes." That is outrageous! How will we Colored People ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?
