    I don't hear any complaining from people with different pigmentation than whites complaining. However, I do hear a lot o whites complaining about it and I trust a lot of them really are in the republican world of social Darwinism predicated by Ronald Reagan for the establishment the new world oligarchy.

They didn't want the govt and a bunch of activist justices telling them what to do. Sure there were racial scars left after the Civil War that lasted for 100 years, but it was fed right along the way too. Look how the South was treated after the Civil War, in spite of Lincoln's attempt to bring the South back in an amiable manner. The North was plenty guilty for things that went on in the South. They prospered plenty from southern raw materials while feigning disgusted at slavery. That's why many who talk trash about the South don't know what the **** they're talking about. Anyway, that's another topic. There's no doubt in my mind that there is plenty of racism in the Democrat Party to go around, and the hypocracy about it is my biggest complaint about them; that and their idea of spending us into prosperity.

    Harry Reid has done enough damage to warrant leaving, he racist and he demoralized our troops.
    Yes, some did - there's always an exception to the rule - but freedom and civil rights mainly came from the Republicans - and fighting to keep their slaves and denying people civil rights mainly came from the Democrats.

    Reid will not leave until the last minute - it is said that his son is running for governor and he doesn't want to hurt his chances, so he will bow out at the last minute - he is not bowing out now because he doesn't want to scare those who he is trying to convince to vote for the health care bill - Reid is out for pushing the bill - his racist remark put him out with a blemish he will never be able to remove - any hope of leaving a legacy is down the toilet where that little turd belongs.

    Conservative Democrats. Unlike today, Republican and Democratic parties actually had depth to their political ideologies. Being liberal or conservative didn't automatically equate to Democrat or Republican.

    The south was full of Conservative Democrats that were very much focused on tradition and limited government. These same Democrats are now southern Republicans.

    Here's some honesty for you:

    Once a KKKer always a KKKer - the KKK knows this which is why they gave Senator Robert Byrd (D-Wva.) a KKK Lifetime Achievement Award, and they gave it to him because he earned it.

    Senator Robert Byrd Receives KKK Lifetime Achievement Award

    HANGMAN'S GROVE, WEST VIRGINIA — William Robert Kräukur, President and CEO of the Klu Klux Klan (KKK), has chosen Senator Robert Byrd (D-Wva.) as this year’s recipient of the KKK’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was presented at the 133rd Annual KKK Transparent Image Awards, taped last night and scheduled to air October 15th (8:00 p.m. ET.)

    “The Lifetime Achievement Award reflects individuals at the pinnacle of their respective fields who’ve made significant contributions to the success of the KKK," Kräukur said. "Senator Byrd exemplifies this prestigious award; no living person has worked as hard as he has to keep the black man dependant upon, and subservient to, the white man. Not to mention his outstanding work against Jews and Catholics.”

    Senator Byrd’s legislative accomplishments, as well as his ascension as the only KKK alumnus to serve as the Majority Leader of the US Senate, a post he served in for six years (1977-80, 1987-88), made him an obvious choice for this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award. “This distinction, awarded to those who advance the ideals of the KKK through personal achievement and service to all people of Caucasian and protestant heritage, accurately describes the contributions Senator Byrd has made to our racially pure organization,” Kräukur said.

    Born in 1917 in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina Robert Byrd was orphaned when his mother was killed in a tragic sausage making accident. Taken to West Virginia by his Auntie Belham and Uncle Peduncle, the future KKK Lifetime Achievement recipient grew up mastering life's early lessons, like learning the proper way to tie a noose.

    LOL... we can't have a dialogue when it comes to Democrats. They simply say... that's enough, we have more important things to do... while screwing thise they claim to "help" at every turn.

    The press assists by ignoring. The Dem primary was a great example.

    They like to hold on to their race card weapon as a political baton, point to R's as racists, and run the course for weeks at any opportunity.

    I was laughing like hell watching the heads of Democrats spin off and explode yesterday... trying to defend Reid.

    Cowards.

    Obama's win was significant in many ways, no reason for the author to make the more mundane stuff sound WAY more meaningful than it was.
    It is long-winded. That's what I hate about slate, they seem to think they are some kind of intellectual and their writing seem somewhat pretentious. But I think the point this article raises seem relevant: did the older white voters who didn't vote for Obama failed to do so because he's black, or because he's a democrat?

    You tipped your hand a little too far by linking a satire piece & trying to assert that it's truth. Congrats, though, you really had us going for quite a few posts.

    Truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction.
