Well, it's true. Care to elaborate on good ol' LBJ's prejudice-which was the motive for giving the blacks the vote so the politicians could keep them 'just satisfied enough' to stay 'in their place' by giving them stuff? Or Bill Clinton's being mentored by self-avowed racist William Fulbright? Or Barack H Obama's being mentored by Communists and Muslim sympathizers?
I'd respect Mr Williams if only he'd learned from his experience at NPR that those holding his worldview and trumpeting their 'tolerance' are, in fact, the intolerant ones.
Hey Super Idiot Liberal Troll, what do you have to say about the blacks in Africa who today are being bought and sold by Arabs? Huh? I owe nobody anything, because I never oppressed, much less held in slavery, anyone. Grow up.
Thanks for the correction-it WAS Bidumb who said that about the 7-11's. Didn't he also say that the Boston bombing was 'worth it'? Sheesh-you seriously can't make this stuff up! :)
Look, I get that having ANY First Lady speak at one's high school graduation would be something not everyone could brag about. But seriously-this IS the students' day, not Moochie's. Let her speak at an independent venue and see who shows up. OTOH, maybe that's why it's being done this way in the first place (evil grin).

Thanks, idiot, but my husband isn't one of them. He learned his job, and more than his job, which in fact is how you get to 'know' the higher-ups. He is now president (not the CEO) and part owner of two companies. Grow the hell up.

Wrong. Plenty of people, such as Clarence Thomas and Oprah Winfrey (to name folks from both sides of the political aisle) have worked their way up from poverty to become quite prosperous. The drive to succeed is something that is typically inborn; some people are just gifted with a high level of ambition. Others aren't, and can be content with few of this world's goods. However, the wish to succeed can also be cultivated IF one is willing to learn, work hard, and pay one's dues-including working with or for someone you don't like or who doesn't like you. In which case, you do what any other reasonable person would do; either stick it out, or find a situation more to your liking that will help you develop your gifts. Success comes from finishing high school, postponing children until marriage, doing and learning more than just your job, living within your means, and saving for your future. Eventually, either someone will notice and bestow greater responsibility and opportunity on you, or you'll learn enough to start out on your own. But that's all on YOU, not on anyone else. Nobody gets it handed to him. Even the CEO's son has to learn and earn his way.
All you need do is look at what's happened to the large cities under Democrat leadership. Add California in as the best example of what happens to a state when Democrats are in charge. Wisconsin was formerly in a bad way until a Republican Governor was elected. Now, they have a surplus, there seems to be work for anyone who wants it, and STILL the Democrats think he's evil, racist, sexist, etc and so forth. The Democrats absolutely DO run on a platform of 'vote for us, we'll give you (blacks, women, Hispanics, gays, 'poor people') all the goodies those stingy, mean, wacist, sexist, homophobic, wascally old white-guy Wepubwicans won't". See Democrat LBJ's RACIST comment about his strategy for getting the n****r vote for the next two hundred years. I'd say it's worked. You?
We typically are the ones telling them not to use [nuclear] force against Iran, etc, and to let the Palestinians have their 'state'. Israel is the only real Middle East ally we have.
