Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
When I watch TEA Bagger rallies all I see are White people, carrying guns, spewing trash about how Obama is the Anti-Christ, and I just think all this hatred stems from the president being black. I see no Asians, no Hispanics, and Tea Party conventions are held mostly in the southern states and coverage mostly played on Fox News.
The 'grass-roots' of the Tea Bagger Party looks to me like the new KKK except they dont wear White Coats and Hoods.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I think Yukon is just a troll. He doesn't really believe that tripe.
1. Most remote in any direction; outermost or farthest: the extreme edge of the field.
2. Being in or attaining the greatest or highest degree; very intense: extreme pleasure; extreme pain.
3. Extending far beyond the norm: an extreme conservative. See Synonyms at excessive.
Moderate conservatives are in the middle. Extreme conservatives are on the extreme. You wanting extreme to be seen as mainstream, or moderate, or the norm doesn't make it so.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Moderator's Warning: Cease with the personal attacks immediately or face the consequences. Stick to the topic, period.
Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
Some people are just plain ignorant about what the Tea Party is all about and this obsession with skin color is getting really old. I'm glad I belong on the side where skin color doesn't mean squat.
Black people are waking up to the fact that the democratic party is not their friend. Conservatives are their friend if they want to be treated as equal. Conservatives want everyone to have equal opportunity to succeed in life. No one should have special favors because of the color of their skin. Blacks are just as capable of succeeding in life as anyone else. The surest way to make sure they don't succeed is to treat them like they owed something just because they happened to be born black.
I'm sorry, but I don't have any white guilt. I've never owned a slave. I don't know anyone who has ever been a slave.
We are American's and so far we still have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Equal opportunity, not a guarantee of equal outcomes or equal stuff.
Conservative Blacks in Houston Form The Crispus Attucks Tea Party | TexasSparkle | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
Lessons learned from decades of intrusive Social Engineering, Social Justice Policies and the Welfare State are left out of text books and routinely ignored by those profiting from them, however, they cannot be denied. One need only take a walk through what is left of our Black communities. Houston's "Sugar Hill" became 3rd Ward which was a thriving Black enterprise zone without any government programs or subsidies. Enter stage left, "The Great Society" which offered "An FDR Chicken In Every Pot" and "An LBJ Check In Every Mail Box". Now Houston's 3rd Ward looks like a war zone and Black families are almost extinct. Spawned in the '60's, these social engineering experiments, government programs and the arrogant utopian value systems which produced them, continue to produce urban decay, increasing cyclical welfare dependency, increasing tax burdens (for those who pay taxes), the demise of the Black family, fatherless homes, skyrocketing out of wedlock births, more abortions than births, a rise in Black militancy and separatist activity and theft of real political power from all of those living in Black neighborhoods. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party promotes and fights for the founding principles originally defined by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our core principles include personal responsibility, education, a constrained and transparent government, a balanced budget, self sufficiency, full assimilation and the development of viable Black businesses .... that create jobs. We identify & vet viable Conservative candidates that are willing to fight for our mission, our principles and the issues we embrace. Candidates and elected officials who are commitment to American, want to maximize the value American Citizenship, share our values and demonstrate full support of our issue oriented efforts are welcome to support them.
