I can still hear my dear mom's wise words of caution while growing up... "You're known by the company you keep."
Guess it is time to shut the government down if that's the only way to stop this mass-hiring of federal workers tasked with implementing Obama's unconstitutional executive order. "We the people" not only have Obama's finger stuck in our eye...WE get stuck with the bill for it, too. Congress better do SOMETHING. Aren't most of them lawyers? Geez...we voted to STOP Obama, not allow him to continue on as a dictator. Is this still America??

Yes...and I've always thought forced busing was another insult to black children. In our area, the minority kids were taken away from their neighborhood schools from kindergarten age through 5th grade. They no longer had successful black teachers as mentors and role models; they no longer had the security and comfort of being in their neighborhoods with mom nearby; their impressionable little minds were filled with visions of affluence quite foreign to their humble-but-loving abodes, an hour or more bus ride away from home. IMO, minority children taught by minority teachers was important to their sense of self-worth and self-esteem; their SCHOOLS should have been brought up to acceptable standards and filled with the same modern equipment readily available in the white schools. Perhaps the "mixing" of the races would not have happened as quickly...but there is a distrust between the races now that belies the intended consequences of "social engineering" dreamed-up by forced busing.
But you can bet he was cheerleading.
But how is it that Sharpton can owe millions to the IRS, yet still be invited to the White House and is considered a leader in the black communities? Lawlessness breeds lawlessness...Obama talks a good game, but underneath it all, he foments crime using the label of "injustice."

My caucasion husband hails from a small Caribbean island where he was in the 4% MINORITY. Growing up, his mentor was a Christian black man who taught him right-from-wrong, to be grateful for all the little things in life; how to always work hard with honesty and unimpeachable ethics; and gave him valuable instruction on how to fix anything and everything around a house. Their's was a mutual admiration which lasted until his wonderful friend passed many, many decades later. If only the black youth of Ferguson, and other communities, had someone to teach such values. Poverty isn't an excuse for lawbreaking and violence...the lack of moral character is.
And today's report is that some Democrat LAWMAKERS performed the "hand's up" meme in Congress... Really? These people obviously dislike and distrust law enforcement, but I bet they LOVE the personal protection given to them via the Capitol Police! Ideological Idiots.
The liberals and Democrats lament the inequality of public school education for minority students...yet they always deny school vouchers.
Did any of the people who owned and/or WORKED at those destroyed minority businesses take part in the riots? People who work don't have the time or energy to spend all night burning and looting stores. Their work-ethic makes them model citizens...it's the "others" who live off of the government via welfare, food stamps, and subsidized housing who are excited about causing mayhem and getting their faces on the news. Perhaps it is time to truly see the destruction of personal initiative that comes with living off someone else's money. Unfettered and unearned welfare benefits CREATE this depressive and hostile environment. We pay twice...when it is given, and when it destroys.
My auto-correct ALWAYS chooses the apostrophe...I have to remember to change it. My guess is that it is an editing problem and not Katie's knowledge of proper grammar.
I know of a married couple who became naturalized citizens after age 65, having NEVER lived in the U.S., and still do not live here. I don't know if they collect SS, but I know for a fact that they are Medicare eligible as they do come here for medical treatments. And, those "potential taxpayers" the president is giving legal work permits to, will be a net loss for our economy when they file for "earned income tax credits." Low-wage earners usually get back more than they pay into the system. It's all a scam to make the low info voters think it is a fair deal.
