    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    how does the fact that your great, great, great, great, great grandfather was a slave in any way oppress you today, nearly 200 years later?

    oh, i totally agree with that. history of oppression should not be used by blacks, Jews, etc etc...do justify and excuse poor perforance and failure to motivate one's self.

    I'm not black.

    and are you suggesting that Segregation was not a form of oppression?

    my goodness, the denial of history is strong.

    ..and btw, I am not the topic of this thread.

    Things do not change quickly. Legally, this all ended less than 80 years ago. Very real and damaging racism hasn't completely ended yet. While we do continue to improve, a good thing, the belief that all is completely well is not only misguided, but kind of silly in a pragmatic world.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You silly twits. This has nothing to do with slavery. This aint no race war. The source and or origins of the Congressional Black Caucus are irrelevant. The simple fact is that even THEY believe Obama has been useless and even THEY recognize his supporters are mindless little puppets who support him based on skin color.

    why don't you try arguing against a point I actually made for a change, instead of just making stuff up?
