If you got welfare checks like they did, perhaps you could afford better clothes.

You should tell them this.

If you're talking about 1972 the Nixon strategy against McGovern was "Amnesty, Abortion, & Acid." The south went GOP as the Democratic Party became the anti-war party, the union party (the south is right-to-work), the secular party (vs the Bible Belt of the south) and the party of high taxes (many southern states have no income tax). In other words, the south went GOP (and it took a generation mind you so racism has nothing to do with it) because the Democratic Party went fervent left.

You've done a marvelous job illustrating my point about Romney's political ads.

People might think we're actually working together as some kind of performance art.

Yes, that's what drove Dixiecrats. Right-to-work.

But at least you know what I'm talking about.

My one black friend has nicer pinnies than I have button front shirts. Maryland is populated by rich people if you consider all my friends from that state.

Why would they think that, seeing as you don't have a clue about performance art? You're clearly just a dilettante. That's pretty obvious at this point. You use your sexuality as a play, but you've haven't a clue and you've definitely no artistic sensibility whatever.

Irvine, people will never, ever, think we're working together as some form of performance art, the reason being I have talent and you don't.

Allright guys, that's enough. No more back and forth about patronizing/protecting/arse-kicking minorities, drunkenness, Southern strategies, or related or unrelated flamebait thereof.

1, it's not the Democrats who came up with the racist birther bullshit.
2, it's also not the Democrats who are obsessing over passing laws to outlaw abortion and gay marriage and making both part of their freaking platform for this election.

Anybody who has at any point in their live experienced abject poverty (and in this group I include myself and I think there are a number of others here) is able to comprehend the fact that poverty is an extremely complex, multi-faceted problem or state of being. I would hope that most thinking adults who haven't experienced poverty can also put 2 and 2 together and come to that conclusion. But what we get instead is the poor = lazy and/or unmotivated and/or unambitious.

Thank you. I don't get how we got to this line of thinking, but it stuns me that we have people actually advancing such theories.

I greatly admire anyone who has been able to come up through poverty and go on to do well. I love stories like that. I hope any hard work I put in will someday pay off so I can be okay financially and be able to take care of myself and my loved ones the way I need and want to.

But those who did get successful didn't do it alone. There was a great amount of luck and right place, right time, right people helping them along the way, and to ignore those facts or deny them or whatever is incredibly naive at best and flat out lying at worst.

I'm just really sick and tired of that obnoxious mindset. How about politicians shut up about that crap and instead try and focus on an actual plan to get us these jobs they claim they'll be able to provide so they don't have to worry about us possibly being lazy or freeloading or whatever crap they think we're doing.

I was just looking to see if there are any decent movies opening tomorrow, and 2016 Obama's America is coming out Hey, George Obama is in it.



Genre: Documentary Cast: Dr. Paul Vitz, Dr. Alice Dewey, Dr. Paul Kengor, Willy Kauai, George Obama

Synopsis: Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D'Souza races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016. During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind's greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires, into America's empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.

Emotionally engaging, 2016 Obama's America will make you confounded and cheer as you discover the mysteries and answers to your greatest aspirations and worst fears.
