It's all good!

Thanks for those on the board that voted for Obama! These are the people that voted with you!

Looks like Barry will be pumping a shit-load of gas! How will he get all his regular presidential duties done?

No wonder his campaign is trying to lower expectations...

Unfortunately, it's not.

That's all I'll have left when they're done cleaning out my pockets.

That's because he'll give our cars and homes to the people that can't afford their own. Duh.

I heard that as well on the radio but I've also heard it several times in small cafes around the east side of San Antonio where I eat breakfast in the mornings . All the old black people sit at a big table and talk loud as hell . You can hear them across the restraunt ,even over the mexican music playing from the juke box .

Maybe you're equally deluded. Why try to find a hidden meaning? She's not a nobel prize winner, or some other kind of higher minded sort. She's a nit wit, glassy eyed with Hope & Change, the promise of free money or a total void of accountability, etc. Boilerplate Obama supporter, from where I stand.

I don't mean to offend, but I offer you the same opportunity you afforded me, that I somehow wasted.

What else were you looking for, an apology from every subscriber to this thread? This is, to me, the kind of mentality that has driven record numbers to the polls to push Obama to the front.

What am I missing? (other than the game)

Why would I be looking for an apology? What's your problem?


Anyway what I mean is doesn't every voter choose their candidate based upon what magic they believe that they can perform?

Nope. I choose my candidate based upon which one will incur the least damage.

Again, don't read too much in to what I've said. This thread is borderline overflowing with red. You come in, wearing blue, asking how we arrived at a glaringly obvious conclusion. That's the appology I'm talking about.

You have many friends on this board, and I'm not here to kick sand in your face. I'm just pissed about the reality. My horse is going to need a miracle, and he's late out of the gate as it is.

You may find a few people like that in the Dem party that are just like the crazy McCain rally lady, but, I don't think that this is the norm. And what's up with the change in type at the end of your statement? Who talks like that?

Maybe you need to re-watch the clip, but this time turn up the sound.

She says that (with Obama) she's not going to have to worry about paying her mortgage or buying gas. She does not say she feels he'll help the economy. If you are hearing her say "she feels that he'll help the economy", then you perhaps you need medication or a hearing aid.

You can try to interpret her statement and somehow try to make it sound rational, but it's just not. Some people feel that under Obama it's going to be raining money and the world is magically transformed. Perhaps it will be in some regard as a result of massive tax payer money that's going to be pumped into government programs. Including the beneficiaries of his socialist redistribution of wealth plan. Wait..Obama likes to label it "spread around the wealth".

You're deluded if you don't believe some people out there see Obama as this god like iconic man that is going to change their lives in dramatic fashion. People have blown this man so completely out out of proportion that I almost feel sorry for the guy. He's not going to change the world in the grandiose fashion people think. His affect will be marginal and will be more about symbolism. If he does get elected, people will over time see the negative side effects of his extreme liberal political ideology. Tax and spend doesn't work. The Obama trickle up economics aren't going to work in the long term. So, I guess I'm not really too worried regardless of the outcome. His absurdity will be his undoing in the realm of politics. Right now all of the pandering sounds wonderful and inspires people. Taking profound and moving words that stir peoples emotions then having it convert to legislation is a bitch. It's been tried many times before in D.C.

Obama is a demagogue. In the right environments (high energy costs, war, economic crisis, unemployment, insolvency, prejudices, etc.) they pull hard on peoples heartstrings and they'll follow said persons anywhere. Even straight into hell, such as in Germany 1933.

The funniest part of the whole thing, is that if a white man had promised all the bullshit that Barry has, no one would believe him, especially the black folks. Because of his color, black folks trust him to do as he's promised, and he has their faith. Now he has already started dropping expectations, and a lot of folks have already voted early. Some of them truly feel like he will take care of them, almost personally, or on an individual basis! He has truly misled millions...

Also noticing the similarities, are you?

Oddly though, Hitler didn't have major support of the German government when he started up the ladder to power. Obama will have (unless there is an unforeseen act of God) majority support in the Senate and the House of Representatives to virtually pass anything.

I guess I don't see why it's funny.

I see that half of you can't figure out that she's not saying "Obama's gonna give me free gas", and really "his tax breaks will help me to the point where I won't worry if I'm going to have enough money for gas from week to week." Then again, it wouldn't help your argument to understand.

I'd so those folks were pretty well informed. Even the commie interviewer didn't get much of a soundbite. If the press and Barry hadn't been hiding his history and been more open of hid deeds and relationships, folks wouldn't think that.

Oh I don't know... the most memorable time of my life is a toss up between my two kids being born. Honestly I can't say I remember ever taking kids out of school to go watch a political rally and I've worked on many local, state and national elections.

Maybe I'm not waiting on a President to hand me a tax break so I can buy gas or pay my mortgage.

Maybe I just don't understand the "what's in it for me, I know I haven't done anything to deserve it, but what's in it for me?" attitude in America.

But like I said, if Obama is elected I'm looking forward to seeing all these people realize... it ain't about tax cuts or credits.

This lady and her kid will be in the same situation they were in before. Sure they'll have a few hundred (maybe in a thousand more) to spend every year but they'll find some way to spend it. Maybe a new iPOD for each family member or a new big screen TV.

Just like if I took one million dollars and gave a $1,000 to 1000 homeless people. In a week they'd still be homeless and I'd be out one million dollars.

The entire Katrina debacle is a pretty fair example of that. FEMA gave out debit cards for up to $1500, and most ended up in electronic and furniture stores. I'm trying to envision those big flat-screens in those FEMA trailers...

Vert, I'll be honest with you and say that you'll probably never understand why it's the most memorable time in her life. Mostly because white Americans came here on their own accord, and were never forced into labor and sold like animals. Regardless of what you think about his policies, or the fact that he's only half black, it's still a big deal for African Americans. And this isn't a VP or cabinet member. This would be one person, elected by the people. Not chosen by the candidate. An African American who's felt prejudice (don't deny it doesn't exist) is probably thrilled that over half the nation (all races included) would pick an even half-black man as their leader.

All the more reason for him to not lie to those folks. He has thrown so much out there, he can't possibly do a tenth of it. They're hanging their hopes on an empty suit, because they think he knows their plight. He was raised in Hawaii attending private schools and going on to Harvard. He's an elitist like most other politicians.

Regardless of the politician, I can't list one in the top 100 of my "most memorable" times.

Dear Lord, I get so tired of hearing this shit. You can't fix stupid.

2007 Income Percentages broken down in fifths

White Only
Lower Fifth - 3.7%
Second Fifth - 8.9%
Third Fifth - 14.9%
Fourth Fifth - 23.3%
Highest Fifth - 49.9%
Top 5% earners - 21.0%

Black Only
Lower Fifth - 2.8%
Second Fifth - 8.1%
Third Fifth - 14.5%
Fourth Fifth - 23.8%
Highest Fifth - 50.8%
Top 5% Earners - 21.2%

Hmmm... holy shit! Same percentages!


80% of the US population is White (including Hispanic origin I guess as well). 13% is Black.

Do you think that, just shear aggregate numbers mean that you will have more white people in the top 5% earners?

The black population follows very closely in relative terms of income.

Some get it and some people don't. Doesn't matter what race you are. It is the same reason you hear countless stories of people winning millions of dollars in the lottery and don't have any money left over in 5 years.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

A little history lesson for you. Although some portion of the atlantic slave trade were conducted through raids. The majority were sold by African kingdoms who depended on slave trade for their economy. Isn't that a bitch? Nobody is angry about this part, nor does anyone who cries about this subject choose to acknowledge it.

The prejudice that exists today is minimal and on the outer fringes of our society. Institutional racism is almost non-existent. And before you tell me how wrong I am.....I have an example for you. A socialist by the name of Barrack Hussein Obama that might (hopefully not) end up becoming ostensibly the most powerful man in the world come January. And he will be there because of the white vote.

Actually, I was talking with my wife about this very subject the other day. I think Barry is actually going to be a double edged sword for black culture in America. When those conversations on The View turn to racism keeping his size 14 boot on the neck of minorities, I would imagine after January 20 that we are just going to be hearing crickets after statements like that.

Enough of the hypothetical.

No matter the route the slaves were sent, when they got here, they were sold & traded as property. My point was that, and it still holds.

You're newfound Messiah has already said that Obama is not a socialist. Keep beating that drum, but it still doesn't mean you know the song. And seriously? You believe the prejudice that exists today is a minimal, and on the outer fringes of our society? The fact that it still exists among major mouthpieces of society (Rush Limbaugh, Imus) says that not only are some media speakers prejudice, but that they've got an audience that hears it now and again.

Not to mention, how can you possibly put a minimum on something you can't document, like a prejudice?

I guess you don't get the point. The Africans sold & traded them as property. They betrayed their own race of people. Yes, our ancestors are guilty of slavery, but point the blame in both directions. Those Africans slave traders are just as much to blame as the whites who exploited them in America.

Yes, it is minimal for mainstream America. And don't forget about the racism that exist in the hearts of minorities. Watch Chris Rock or any of those guys do their comedy acts. You can't even count how many times they say the word nigger. They perpetuate the ugly vocabulary of racism and it's stereotypes.

If racism is so prevalent then why does Barry looks so good on the polls? Why did he do well in the Iowa Caucus, which is the white bread capital of the world? Like I said, racism is on the outer fringes of society. It is minimal. If it was to such a degree as you seem to think Barry would not be in the position that he is currently in.

Do you think someone can't get into school or get a job because of skin color these days? Think it is a limiting factor like it was 50 years ago? Absolutely not. If you think that then I am starting to see why people give you such a hard time on here. The only thing that is a limiting factor these days is your ambition and will to succeed. It's about effort and not seeing a victim when you look into the mirror.

Rush Limbaugh is a douchebag. And what Imus has said on the radio is insignificant in comparison to the racist hate filled vitriol that Jeremiah Wright and Farrakhan has vomited out of their mouths. However, I'm sure you don't acknowledge the existence of reverse racism. Oh well....
