    K............. So you believe hyperbole?

    And it's not Obama - it's the DNC leadership and has been for a long time. This isn't new - it's been going on for decades.
    It's possible... but more possibly not.

    When it's obvious as this is... yes.

    Actually the reverse. Decades of it make it more possible, no less.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    Your exact words were "it may be hyperbole, but I think it's true"

    So you basically believe something you know to be untrue?

    There's no way you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that democratics strategy is to make sure people stay poor and downtrodden.

    My exact words identify a want to doubt, hence, using the word "may". I want it to be untrue, but as I stated already twice, after decades, the chances that it's hyperbole are slim. What I want and what is, are two different things.

    Nor do I have to since I'm not a lawyer and DP is not a court room. All I ask is for those who have open minds to review the past 30 years of DNC policy, social engineering, welfare and social programs. The political benefit to giving handouts is that those accepting the handouts will vote for more hand outs. Going back biblically - the story of the giving a man a fish or teaching him how to fish. Democrats have been giving out fish for a long time now while promising to to show people how to fish. But really - why go fishing if you get free fish already?

    To me it's obvious and has been for a long time, which is why I cannot under any circumstances adopt a liberals view of hypocritically stating Democrats are champions for the downtrodden - they're not. They make it seem like they are by giving out all sorts of things, but at the end of the day, it's just a bribe to keep people dependent and voting for more Democrats. If Democrats were really for the downtrodden, they'd stop social programs and put together education, skills based training etc... where people can lift themselves up, not become more dependent on government programs.

    Wonder why that doesn't happen much.

    You see the conundrum ... big government gives big handouts keeps me voting for those who support more programs for the handouts. The other guys want me require me to work hard, put in long hours, take risks of failure, take my own responsibility and accountability.

    Just saying, Republicans have supported the Civil rights Movement which Democrats wanted to continue with the Jim Crow Laws and other legislation that are based on ethnicity. Now it's the Democrats spouting off that they are for the minorities... The only things I've seen is the Democrats saying what minorities want to hear, "It's not your fault, here have a brownie point because of your ethnicity."

    And Beck wanted to point out the symbolism of the Civil Rights Movement and how it lost it's meaning to being for human rights and etc. when it is supposed to be for equal rights of opportunity, not of wealth nor of rewards. And human rights is just overused. Anything can be taken as a human right nowadays. "I have a human right to own a house, so gimme a house!" It's not far from this right now, especially how the government made some Banks give sub-prime loans, which busted in the worst way possible.
    We the People of the United States,... provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare....
    Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....

    well, by getting payments off the government, you lose the incentive to earn more than just enough to live on, however, if you're unable to pay rent, and are forced to live on the street, your chances of obtaining a job are obviously much higher.

    I'm so concerned about this whole Tea party movement, really has us libs shaking in our boots.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
