    I just don't know if I can continue to debate this with such dishonesty as yours displayed here Joe....

    J, this is another of your dishonest tactics. I responded directly to what you said. Cornered, you consistently resort to these tactics. Try reading what you write.

    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.

    The redneck viewers seem to relate with the Robertsons.


    Pretty good show....Based in the Cumberland region of KY. But it is fiction, just like DD, just like everything you watch on tv. It's entertainment. I am sure there is someone that liked Dukes of Hazard too when it was on, I personally thought it insulted intelligence.
    Yea I am sure it is a great show but it isnt a reality show.


    So what? He made a successful business out of producing them, and then made millions more signing a deal to do a show. Are you mad that he is successful?
    Why would I care about someone elses success? So this Phil guy made money at what he does, good for him. I dont see your point though.

    Now some real simple questions for you to answer

    1. Do you have proof that Phil knew of, or participated in the Till case?

    2. Do you have proof that Phil was a member of the KKK, beat blacks, or participated in any hate crime against blacks at that time?

    3. Do you have proof that of his experience that he stated, that he is lying in any shape, manner, or form, other than your own biased presumption of him?

    The answer to all three should be a resounding NO, if you are honest.
    Try not making up such stupid accusations about Robertson that I never made or implied (participant in the Till case, member of the KKK, being violent to blacks).

    I am sorry, but if a man of his age (65+) who has been educated, does not know the incorrectness of the stupid statement he has made regarding the "happy blacks", then he needs to study up on African American history because he has a serious deficit in his knowledge on this issue.

    There is something as personal experience and reality. And if you are proclaiming your incredibly incorrect and unrealistic views of black people (like Robertson claims he has) like he has done, he is either oblivious to reality or he knows nothing about African Americans and their struggle.

    Yeah but it's true the Dem's should have read Obamacare before they voted on it.

    Derogatory statements by Phil led A&E to air Duck Dynasty 24/7, they surly did not suspend the show. Now what would you call that?

    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    you know im sorry but i really hate the idea of political correctness. I cant go around saying black, mexican, illegal immigrant, gay, lesbian,jew, etc... without someone getting on our buts about politically correctness. Mean while almost of those things that we are not allowed to say are used by the people they are talking about to describe themselves.

    I have black friends who call themselves black and want other people to call them black instead of african americans because they have never seen africa and no one in their last 5 generations has seen africa, and no one in the last 8 has lived there! Gays call themselves gays, believe me i hear them do it ALL THE TIME.

    The one that really gets me annoyed is the illegal immigrant one. People, when someone crosses the border illegally, and they are leaving their country far a new one, then by definition they are technically an illegal immigrant. There is no getting around it.

    Now i didn't bother to read what this guy off of duck dynasty said except that it has something to do with gays and i don't particularly care. The right of speech says that he can speak. it doesn't mean that he cant be punished or insulted about what he says, but he can speak. And as being gay is against the christian religion, then preaching the christian religion is both a use of his freedom religious and freedom of speech. If a&e is going to segregate against him for using those rights then i am sorry but that is wrong. Now im not saying it is right to put down a people but he did nothing wrong by practicing his religion.

    What Phil Robertson was doing was testifying to his personal experience. You seem to think that you have some expertise on what the "correct" and "realistic views of black people" are that Robertson doesn't. I'd like to learn more about what qualifies you to determine who's "oblivious to reality."

    So, how many American, southern, rural black folks did you grow up with? Buncha those folks in Holland, are there?

    How were his comments "derogatory"?

    Duckk Robertson is now openly campaigning for TEA-party candidates,
    such as the one in the LA 5th who won 60-40 after being down by double digits..

    The GOP is scared to death of Duckk and will most likely invite him to their next convention..
    GOP leaders like Palin blanket-support his words without reading them .
