    Oh.

    So because some black people showed false offence at a political speaker they didn't especially like and weren't going to vote for anyway, suddenly saying "you people" is automatically racist, regardless of who the audience is?

    That's beyond foolish and ignorant, isn't it, and well into the truly stupid pre-programmed robotic response puppet stage, right?

    1...2...3...

    That's it?

    Huge "socialist" programs -- you have been drinking the dark-red kool aide.
    No need to get worked up, calm down a bit.

    Historians categorized Roosevelt's program as relief, recovery and reform.
    Some historians.




    Some economists/historians argue how effective individual programs were, but he is considered to be one of our greatest presidents.
    Like you said some consider him a great president, others who actually look at his record view him for what he was a tyrant.

    Only now, as the far-right nutters attempt to rewrite history, do people begin to lose sight of what FDR accomplished as a leader and human being.
    Answer my points then. You decry Bush for Guantanamo but give FDR a pass on internment camps? He accomplished certain things but he basically threw the constitution out the window, we are lucky he wasnt allowed to be president any longer by divine providence we got saved.


    It's sad that people have no concept of that level of poverty and despair and what it took to bring the country back. My parents lived through it and they both remembered FDR as most Americans do.
    What brought us out of the depression was war and rebuilding of Europe.

    Re: Internment camps -- it's an ugly bit of U.S. history, like rendition

    So you equate putting American citizens in huge numbers into camps based soley on their ethinicty, to taking a few people based on evidence into rough interogations? Wow who is drinking the Cool Aid now?

    And shame on JFK, how many endangered elephants were killed to build that ivory tower?

    Yeah, JFK was one of the more incompetent presidents, but there's so many to choose from, he's not the worst.

    Also, read the part of the Constitution where it says the Executive branch sets foreign policy.

    And don't forget to cite the part of the Constitution violated by Reagan when his underlings, without his knowledge or consent, sold arms to Iran, okay?
    Any forieign treaty must be ratified by the senate two thirds vote. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    Where do you get your history? From cartoons inside of bubble gum wrappers?

    If it was not for Kennedy you would be speaking Russian instead of English now, young man.

    What do you base that on?

    If the Cuban missle crisis deterioted, there would be no languages at all spoken today.
