    Obama's drillings moratorium is your example? An executive in the executive branch is exercising his right to stop something temporarily he feels could be detrimental to the country and that's your example of individual rights suppression? I don't beleive in the moratorium either but this is a very lame example.

    BTW he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. If he did not impose the moratorium he would have been criitcized too.

    And one more thing; I'll bet if there had been a warning that the well that leaked, was in violation of saftety protocols, and Obama had production stopped you righties would have been also screaming bloody murder. In fact I don't think so, I know so.

    Wallace is a good interviewer. He doesn't pander to anyone.

    Beck is very humble. So what if he cries. He has feelings about things.
    I'm trying to think of a JackAss. I'd guess I'd pick Ed Shultz. Glenn is nothing like that jerk.

    For every example of a black man with those problems you list I can find an example of white trash with the same problems. It's socio-economic class not race that causes problems.

    I.e. there are very few blacks in my area, however we have plenty of poor people, alcoholics, white drug addicts (meth), and breakins, even some murders etc etc Lots of deadbeat dads too. Not long ago we had a guy beat his 1 year old stepson to death. Guess what? He wasn't black.

    Can you give us an example where the Civil Rights industry is making money? You're always asking for examples so it's only fair, but I won't be holding my breath.

    I'd dig up the thread, but not today. You can have a go
    The Civil Rights Act votes, divided by Southern, and Northern Representatives. (Southern Meaning the 11 states that formed the Confederate States of America)
    The original House version:
    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7%–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145-9 (94%–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138-24 (85%–15%)
    The Senate version:
    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5%–95%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 45-1 (98%–2%)
    Northern Republicans: 27-5 (84%–16%)

    They stressed Christianity more than anything at the event. God is one thing, but focusing on Jesus isn't being very inclusive. w/e... I'm sure it was still pretty motivational for some.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    There is nothing more arrogant than being a TV talk show host. Especially one who tells people what to think.

    How can you even mix up humility with anything that has to do with anyone in the gas-bag industry? Good God Almighty!
    You can be rich, successful, have a TV and radio show and still be humble.
    Now Obama could never be humble, even if he was dirt poor. He doesn't have it in him, and Beck doesn't have a spec of arrogance.
    They are complete opposites.

I don't think this is what MLK had in mind at any level. Close minded, robotic following, dependency on government, and all base elements of society in decay.
    What on earth?

    All base eleements of society are in decay?

    The violent crime rate is lower today than it was in 1965: Why are violent crime rates falling? - washingtonpost.com

    Divorce is up, sure - but Beck, Limbaugh, Gingrich, and all the others trying to tell us what to do, of course, account for a good number of those divorces, don't they?

    In fact, compare the divorce rate of the reddest states in America and you'll see much higher rates of divorce than you'll find in most blue states.
    Divorce Rate by state. Definition, graph and map.
    (Note: I'll give Nevada some slack, since that's probably a bunch of people moving there for the quickie divorce).

    If the Tea Party is so about restoring "honor", why are the states where they are most dominant (I know there are Tea Parties everywhere, but they hold the most power in Southern states, that's basically a given) so chock full of the dishonor of divorce - and why do the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Pennsylvania have such low divorce rates?

    Oh wait, let's just blame that on gays for wanting to marry.

    Let's see: poverty

    http://northshorejournal.org/LinkedI...y-for-2008.jpg

    Yeh. It's been rising nearly every year since 2000, but even as we entered the Great Recession (which started December, 2007), we still have almost half the poverty rate we had in 1960.

    Uh...Life expectancy has risen by nearly 10 years since the 1960s - FASTSTATS - Life Expectancy

    Yeh - we've hit a pretty big economic bump (again, that started in 2007, NOT yesterday) - but since when do conservatives look at America and call it dishonorable and in decay - espcially in light of the facts that crime is down, we're healthier than we were, the poverty rate is half what it was in the 1960s.

    Where is this decay of which you speak? Is it women not being as dependent on men? Is it that blacks can't be told what neighborhoods to live in legally? Is it because gays seek the same rights and responsibilities as others?

    The only closed-minded, robotic following in DC this weekend occured on the mall when a 100,000+ people were at their favorite TV hosts Beck and call.
