Hey, markust, I heard you can help achieve equality faster by pitching in some money here. Don't worry, it even tells you what to do if you've reached your cap and still want to pitch in more!

"When a rapper can talk openly like this"
I don't think individuals like Jay-Z having the power to influence the public is necessarily a good thing. His lyrics are a bit disturbing to say the least, especially since he has some history of violence.

@markust123 I bet you think Ronald McDonald cares about equality too, huh?

@markust123 It was also meant to be humorous. I'm not really having a serious political discussion with you right now. I'm keeping it just serious enough to keep myself entertained.

@markust123 It's better than the fallacy you committed. Also, I didn't ignore it. Look above.

"again, it's not about votes. It's about people. It's the right thing to do as a human being."
And you call 5cats and myself brainwashed, Jesus Christ man, get a hold of yourself. I'm going to repeat myself once again: NO politician cares about you or your well being. Politics isn't about doing the right thing. Politicians just play the game because how are they going to get yachts if the public doesn't like them? Politics is all about the yachts, man. Stop pooting yourself believing in things like equality.

"I respect you a little less now that you've gone and quoted Jay-Z. His kind is ruining the rap genre."

Attack the source - distract from the actual comment. Karl Rove would be so proud.

@markust123 Hmm.... let's see. I'm hating on a partisan president.
You're applauding him and using something a pooty rapper said to support him, and I'm the partisan one? Cool logic, bro.

I'm bored with you @eddy666. You got on my case with accusations of being partisan and now all you are doing is repeating partisan talking points??? I think we can all see who really is the partisan one here.

Jay-Z said this today on CNN,
“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple...I think it's the right thing to do, so whether it costs him votes or not - again, it's not about votes. It's about people. It's the right thing to do as a human being.”

When a rapper can talk openly like this tides are changing. Like him or hate him Obama has really opened the road up wider for full equality. I think my state (Washington) will be the first to confirm gay marriage via a vote. That is if the opposition can get enough signatures on the ballot. If not it has already passed through our state congress.

@markust123 What are you talking about? Obama does not, nor has he ever(look at his track record before he ran for president) straddled the middle. Just because he hasn't done much in his first 4 terms does not mean he straddles the middle. He's a puppet to the democratic party, just like people like Gingrich are to the republicans. What he tells the media these days does not indicate his actual beliefs. At this point in the election period both candidates are going to try to appear to straddle the middle. That's how it's always worked. There's no sense in going far off to one side when there is only one opponent.

"I think you misunderstood me. I wasn't coming at Obama from the right, but from the middle, and I was doing so by comparing Obama to some of his other liberal colleagues."

I know you are not being sincere now because President Obama straddles the middle. The problem is the extremist have pulled the Republican party so far to the right they do not understand what the middle is anymore. And I agree with you about John McCain (but the pre-presidential candidate McCain). I actually really liked him. He stood up for what he believed in.

No harm no fowl! lolz!

Put a bit or two into your profile, just so it's easier to tell if you're active.

vv @eddy MacCain was well known for a history of NON-partisan behaviours. One of the 'knocks' against him was that he was too 'liberal'.
Obama has shown pure partisanship from day 1. Not even INVITING the Repubs to discuss the "secret" Obamacare bill! Not even letting his own party see it! lolz!

The GOP field was "weak" this time around, with several (potentially) strong candidates sitting it out. Sad, but better than BHO!

Hillary! Would have Billy to guide her, he's pretty darn good at working both sides to get things done actually. IDK though, I think Killary is hard-core...

"I just don't see how you can claim to not explicitly favor one side"

I've never stated that. I favor liberals but I do not explicitly favor them. I believe the reason we are in such a big mess is that both sides stopped listening to each other many years ago. How deep in trouble do we need to get before congress gets off their ass and starts working for everyone not just for their votes. But I will not accept that President Obama does listen to the other side. He favors the liberal side but he is too smart to think he knows everything. He wants to hear all sides of the story. You can't come to the best solution without doing that. Congress and the media are the biggest roadblocks to fixing this mess we are in.

I thought Clinton was our first black president. Guess Obama has to first at something.
