    Aren't all taxes "usurpation of labor" by your definition?

    And, actually, if you want a smaller "usurpation of labor," you should support single-payer or some other form of universal health care. Virtually every country with such a system spends fewer tax dollars per person than we do. That's right, we actually spend more taxes on health care than Canada. And you still have to pay insurance premiums on top of that!

    So if you hate taxes so much, let's reduce the need for them.

    Nobody said that, you just made that assumption. Which makes you the racist for having that thought!

    See, what was actually being said is that the Republicans keep picking crazy black men to show off. If you guys would pick a sane person they wouldn't be saying that. Of course, black or white, the GOP seems to have a lot of crazies in the primary every time.

    You're projecting John.

    What the hell are you talking about he was appropriate on the Trayvon case...?? No case had even been presented before he was likening the thug to being himself as a young man...and then the emotional pull that the poor young thug could have just as well been his son... the president had no business sticking his nose in a state case in Florida much less taking sides, compounding the insult into injury by taking the wrong side...he needs to spend less time on the golf course, opining about such things a Red Skins name change... do your JOB Mr. president... this boobamacare rollout has been a complete disaster with three years to get it right...but I digress...

    Voluntary blindness...see no evil, hear no evil if its about your thug-in-chief, eh?
    That would assume I accept the premise. I really don't. I actually live in this world, and that really isn't happening. Sorry.

While it would be hard to argue that he doesn't percieve those situations through a lense which emphasized race, his main problem is speaking about things which he doesn't understand or have all the facts. For a race-neutral example, look up his comments on sexual assault in the military and the unlawful command influence they had. Most people have some sort of bias, but we are very capable at correcting for it when given the opportunity. Obama has had problems with not giving himself the time/making the effort to correct his own biased perceptions.

    If the reality doesn't match my perceptions, I'd love it if you elucidated how for me so that I might correct them.
    he didn't make any groundless comments. Some misunderstood the comments and took them in the most hyperbolic way possible. I listen to all of it then, read the comments, and it takes a lot to make those comments into what you're presenting. There really wasn't anything there. He spoke like any farther would speak.

    I seem to remember a certain other president injecting himself into a situation that, by the standards to which conservatives are holding Obama, was none of his damn business.



    Presidents routinely opine on the events of the times. But, like many other things, it only pisses off conservatives when Obama does it, because Obama Derangement Syndrome is so pervasive that the basic premise has become, "If Obama's doing it, it must be wrong."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    So if you disagree with someone they are crazy? Got it. LOL.
