    Didn't read anything else did you? Ironically, for a black man, you never ever see any racism. Unless it's from the left.

    I would like to add one thing to my previous post about as a white guy I would feel very uncomfortable entering Maxine's district. If I was a black guy from a good part of town with no gang to back me up I would feel just as uncomfortable, possibly even more uncomfortable, these are bad places full of bad people.

    The race card again. I think you need to look up what that word means, so at least when you throw it around again, you know for sure you're mis-applying it.

    Your mistake was describing a black, liberal area of the country. Had you described a republican district in rural Kentucky as being awash with toothless, back-woods moonshiners that spent the best ten years of their lives in the first grade, drive around in pick-up trucks with gun racks and Confederate flags, and marry their first cousins, you would have gotten an atta-boy from people like Rocket88.

    You have a pretty indulgent attitude toward banks.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Don't read, do you?

"If you live in Alabama and you voted for Bush, you must have more junked out cars in front of your trailer than you have teeth in your mouth." Same statement when you get right down to it.
    At least make an accurate ad hom. I mean if you're going to be an asshole, AT LEAST READ THE ****ING THREAD FIRST. Nope, too much trouble. It's far easier to to make assumptions about people.

    God, you cons will just jump to the defense of anyone remotely on your side. If a liberal said this, it would be absoulte proof of "liberal racism." Since sawyer's on your side, there's absolutely nothing going on here. You guys are real pieces of work. Not only do you run to defend somebody who says questionable things, you can't even make an accurate ad hom attack.

    Funny you say that because I was going to post the definition of racist for the kid, then I thought, why bother.

    This from the person who thought Hank Williams Jr's First Amendment rights were being violated. Shall I post the actual First Amendment for you, or should I not even bother?

    Not nearly as much as Waters.

    She voted to bail them out. I wouldn't have.

    I quake in my boots every day that Maxine Waters has any shred of power to shape the future of anyone or anything.... that her moronic views and opinions are representative of enough people to keep her in Congress is nothing less than a bonifide miracle.

    Perhaps, within the next year or two, the ethics violations of hers will be brought to light and taken up.
    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.
