    ms sherrod's and her husband's communal farm, which they called new communities, won 12.8 million from ag, and the put out couple were awarded an additional 330,000 for mental anguish alone

    BTW in case anyone didn't know Shirley Sherrod (remember her) was mixed up in this black farmer reparations and made out like a bandit. Yea, she really needed that money, huh?
    They're worse than ever because white people don't like the fact that brown people have positions of power. Period. I'm sick of white people whining all the time. You are not worse off because of brown people. You're worse off because rich white people on Wall Street stole your retirmement and devalued your home with unethical investment tools, got a bailout from both parties, and gave themselves Billions in bonuses.

    They want you to be angry at brown people because it keeps the poor and middle class at war with themselves while they get richer and richer and richer off of their unscrupulous tactics.

    If working people of all races would stop being whiny little bitches about race and fighting with one another, maybe we could get back to an economy that values WORK instead of the ability to craft schemes that make them richer by shuffling **** around.

    You worry about this bill, but you don't worry about the fact that a "farmer" from Tennessee runs for office on "smaller government" but has collected $20 million in government farm subsidies over the past decade? Imagine how many others like him are making a killing off your tax dollars. But that doesn't bother us because their white? Is that the point?

    it did

    congress had to appropriate the funds to pay what the courts deemed black farmers and Native Indians were entitled to because of the federal actions ... this sum is an effort to make them whole
    ... In a passionate recounting of the events leading up to the settlement, the federal judge who decided it in 1999, Paul Friedman, wrote in his decision that "the USDA and all of the structures it has put in place have been and continue to be fundamentally hostile to the African American farmer."

    So explain the trick of how then did Obama get elected if so many white people hate him because of his color? What a load of crap....

    I wish more people would learn about Black Liberation Theology. 20 years sitting in a church that preaches it had to have an effect on Obama.
    Apparently, since I am white, I have to give back to the blacks what I "took" to be saved.
    BS, I never took anything from a black person. My God is not a God who would expect me to give something back that I never took.
    I also think this belief is more wide spead within our government than we care to know. For instance, Chris Coons, the guy who beat Christine O'Donnell believes in liberation theology

    Ok, then the midterm blood bath must in turn mean that they also hate demo idiocy even more than that to put repubs back in charge of the purse, right?

    Brietbart has a whole different take on why she was fired. It has to do with corruption involving Pigford, Obama and this administration. I was thinking the same thing at the time once I started researching her. He thinks they wanted to get her out quick because they didn't want that corruption to come out.
    There's a video of him telling about it. He was also on Spitzer Parker and he said they edited out when he told the reason he thought they fired her. I'll try to find it.

    OK.... Who's going to be the first to slam me for using Breitbart as a source? At least he's a lot more believable than Media Matters.
