The facts in this article have often made me wonder at how the general negro population votes democrat. When you consider how welfare has destroyed their traditional families and lowered their self esteem, abortions keep their numbers suppressed, and minimum wage keep many unemployed; you would think they could figure out who has their best interest at heart.

Dude...the word "negro' hasn't been used since the 70's,and if i am not mistaken is also considered offensive.

Would WASP be considered offensive or similar?

The schools are filled with liberal teachers. The urban schools are even worse: they are filled with liberals AND people who run their programs on philosophy rather than results. Therefore, what you get is an undereducated underclass...and the libs like it that way. If all you hear day after day, is that the Republicans are bad and have held your people down that is what you are likely to believe.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than bad politicians and jurists alone, which is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming politicians should not blind anyone to the vast grouping of independent and special interest fools that made them their representatives. This republic can survive bad politicians and jurists, who are, after all, fools. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who elected them.

We thought Joe Biden couldn't top--or bottom--the appalling gaffe of calling a 2010 White House bill signing ceremony "a big f___ing deal." But he just did it. In Danville, Virginia this week, Biden told a largely black audience the Republicans were going to "put y'all in chains." Now, of course, his staff is backpedaling furiously. He meant the banks. He was talking about banking de-regulation, they bleat frantically. Sure he was.

If any conservative, any Republican had made such a statement, he'd have been fired. Agriculture Sec. Fred Butz was fired in 1976 within hours of telling a dirty joke...
