Toure claims that twitter doesn't allow "nuance"? That's not an apology. That's just a pathetic attempt to excuse himself for remarks that were clearly insensitive, if not racist.
The VA system is broken? I thought Paul Krugman held it up as a model that we needed to emulate... "You see, we actually have a real live case of impressive cost control in health care: the VA system." http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/27/medicare-and-the-va/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

Just tonight I was talking with a mom who happened to have a masters degree in secondary ed. Her son is attending a school in another city where white students only comprise 20% of the student population. She was deeply concerned that he had been threatened by a black gang member, who declared that he would shoot her son if he refused to fight him. According to her, her son is experiencing stomach problems, largely due to stress. This is far too common. What parent would want their child to face this? Brown v Board of Education may have addressed the access issue for black students, but it did little to improve their education. If anything, it only penalized white students by placing many of them in a combat zone.
Nixon won his reelection in a landslide. Things didn't turn out so well for him, though, when among other things, congress discovered that he attempted to turn the IRS on his political enemies. But just keep telling yourself that winning is everything, Einstein.
If you want a glimpse of our health care system under Obamacare, the VA system provides the perfect example. The VA system is the best health care system in the world... until you get sick.
I dread the last year of his presidency, when political considerations won't constrain him. I predict that Obama will issue some hellacious executive orders that set this country back 100 years.

The Donald Sterlings of the world are like the half-eaten cookie that parents stage on Xmas eve to prove to their kids that Santa actually exists. Liberals use these cookies to promote their own racist scam on the public. It's the perfect American Hustle.

That's the Democrat ticket, to be sure.
He should have answered "Allah", and they would have welcomed him with open arms in the name of diversity.
