    I have to get off soon Paul, but did you hear about the poll done a number of years back in which only 6% of respondents thought racism was a "serious problem." In the same poll, I believe, 12% believed Elvis was still alive. Crazy world, no?

    Our country, despite having come a long way, is still a very racist place Paul, but I don't expect most white folks to know that ... and with the demographic changes we're seeing, that are scaring the heck out of a lot of people, expect us to take a few steps back ... the Sup. Ct. certainly did today ...

    I expected you to answer if there would only be 18 and not more today. I expected you to comment on whether they may have been forward-looking enough to visualize the incredible tech curve we're on now.

Do you support Zimmerman? Do you support the incredible misue of the filibuster? How about the nuclear option? Who was wrong in the credit downgrade?

    can you not render a decision?.......i what you will think of the court if they rule in your favor.....

    I'm not sure it will have much electoral impact one way or another. The lefty fearmongers (SPLC, et al) will scream for a while.

    but i dont think you see it that way...i thin k you see it from 1 side

    this is my last attempt to try to explain it to you ... I said that racism has played a part in the way Obama has been treated by the GOP, tea partiers, etc. ... I'm not his biggest fan, and have said unkind things about him, as I did about Bush (although much harsher and often for Bush for obvious reasons) ... I have no problem the right being nasty to Obama, but when it's racial, then I have a problem ... that's all ...

    Can you not understand that many simply disagree with his policies?
