    Given the tepid response and politicization of Ebola, the answer is a definite no. The larger question was dismissed out of political expediency.... no one wants to really address that bigger issue until it threatens millions in their home districts.
    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.

    And that's why Ebola ultimately devastated the United States and its once proud citizens were reduced to cannibalism.

    Re: Obama the n-word

    Not only have I heard, I agree with others who use it and have used it describing him myself. (somewhere on my list of infractions is the post I did so on this forum)

    But then again, there are differences in the usage of the word. I for one never use it as a description of race, but rather a description of personality and actions. After all, niggardly (being stingy or selfish) has nothing to do with race, so why should the N-word, which is from the same base be used for race. It's a perfectly good word, when used correctly.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    It sounds like using the n word makes you very gay.

    I don't know where you are getting your information, but "niggardly" and the n-bomb do not come from the same linguistic roots.

    I do especially enjoy your "when I use it, it's not about race" disclaimer. That's what they all say.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Correct! [game show "correct answer" sound]

    Niggardly derives from the word "niggling," and has no common origin with nigger.

    Re: Obama the n-word

    I remember a guy saying this about him..."A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee," but Ive never personally heard anyone referring to him as a nigger. There are many however that do...it would be silly to think there are no racist individuals that would speak of him in such a manner.

    Re: Obama the n-word

    I am from alabama and live in florida. I never heard anyone refer to obama in any racial expletives. I refuse to use the term "n word" because i find it ridiculous that is the legitimate substitution for the word ni##er. So juvenile. Anyway, take that for what its worth

    I know you know that.
    And I know that you know that I never said that it did.

    Also, I now know that you weren't really interested in any links, but were simply making a discrediting gesture. I will remember that in the future rather than accepting a request at face value, and trying to be helpful!
