Imagine what the warriors of the right would whine about if they did not fulfill this mandate?
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Ahh, yes! When there is nowhere else for a leftist to go they retreat to charges of racism.
So is it your contention then that births to unwed mothers in the United States have gone up equally between Black women and women of other races? That the social programs the leftists initiated were a good thing for Black families?
Despite $16 trillion in debt, and another record $229 billion increase in the debt last month alone, it's quite likely the leftists will continue to support an defend these social programs despite the damage they have caused to the United States and its people.

ALEC-inspired Republican legislation -- were sufficient, given that there has been no significant proof to the contrary provided.
Those requirements consisted of things like a drivers license, or a utility bill, or a school ID, a property tax bill, or basically any type of common evidence that you did indeed live in the district where you were trying to register and/or vote. All that worked just fine until Republicans began to scheme how they could further discourage potential Democratic voters from participating in elections (which has been their modus operandi for over a generation).
1981: GOP Strategist Discusses Use of Racist Appeals, Code Words in Campaign Strategies
Lee Atwater. [Source: NNDB (.com)]Republican political strategist Lee Atwater, in a discussion with political science professor Alexander Lamis, discusses the Republican strategy of using racism to win elections. Lamis will later quote Atwater in his book Southern Politics in the 1990s. Atwater takes Lamis through the evolution of Republican appeals to racism: “You start out in 1954 by saying, ‘N_gger, n_gger, n_gger.’ By 1968 you can’t say ‘n_gger’—that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me—because obviously sitting around saying, ‘We want to cut this,’ is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than ‘N_gger, n_gger.’” Atwater will go on to manage the 1988 presidential campaign of George H. W. Bush, where he will oversee the use of what is considered one of the most overtly racist campaign ads in modern history, the “Willie Horton” ad (see September 21 - October 4, 1988).

Keep trying to change history Karl. I love correcting you and you certainly keep me busy.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
It would be like passing a law that everyone must wear a tin foil hat to prevent abduction by aliens. There is an urgent need for that law; it would benefit millions, as well as the integrity of the country as a whole. As a side benefit, we could all begin receiving the right wing moonbeam transmissions that are apparently the source of some of the posts we see around here
