    Wow! Where do we begin to point out what is wrong with that statement? Civil rights legislation created a sub class dependent on government largesse? Barack Obama is creating the same through supporting unions?

    So, blacks are the ones on welfare, wouldn't be if we'd kept Jim Crow alive, and unions are also creating dependency on government largesse, is that the ideas you're trying to promote?

    Really?

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What the....? Why I thought Obama was so good at handling the spill that a mere wave of his hand cleared the Gulf, and made everything all okey, dokey....

    You know how the quote system works, right? Please quote where I said that. Do that and we can deal with the rest of your post.

    Could you provide some details on this drive-by accusation please?

    He's just trying to get as many conservative bogeymen into one post as he can.

    1) Welfare recipients. Check
    2) Unions. Check
    3) Obama. Check

    All he needs now is Sandra Fluke and the liberal media, and he'll get all of his points.

    I thought you guys hated Federal programs. Obama cuts one and it's "Goddamn Obama!"

    Make up your mind.

    I did quote what you said, and yes, the subject was civil rights. Perhaps you didn't really mean what the words you posted seem to mean.

    But, I have no way of knowing what's in your head, just what the words you post say.

    Meanwhile, Texas Republican lawmakers have millions of their legitimate voting citizens that would not be allowed to vote with their still-to-be-approved nonessential 'emergency' voter ID law.

    Texas secretary of state officials did not find matching 2012 driver’s licenses or state-issued photo IDs for 2.4million of the state’s 12.8million registered voters, though all but about 800,000 of those voters supplied a valid ID number when they first registered to vote.

    Texas' contested voter ID law could shave voter rolls - Houston Chronicle
