With a great rebuttal like that, I give up. This board is way too high IQ for me. Will just stay on the football site with the regular folks and leaves this site to the brilliant people. You guys are way to smart for me. Has been fun pissing you ass holes off tho.
Thank you. Addition by subtraction.
Don't be afraid to ride the lightning.
That should be your sig shithead
The failure of the media to overcome its liberal bias will allow what should have been a landslide win to be a cliff hanger with Romney winning narrowly in Ohio and Wisconsin and winning the overall election. This could go either way though so brace yourself for the possibility of another four years of inept leadership, gridlock and further slide towards European style socialism.
Last night...Houses keep get broken into in my neighborhood...I was pulled over 4 times yesterday in my Escalade....
How stupid is it to vote for someone with Obama's abysmal record. Oh wait a minute....You can't fix stupid.
Now I get it.
We elected a Black man POTUS and some people of color still claim to be victims.
The Reverend Jackson, Al Sharpton and Minister Farrahkan thank you for keeping the race card in play.
It's funny you use the word "we" you have made it pretty clear that YOU didn't vote for him. But that's totally fine, take all the credit you need to feel as if you took a part in history. Your statement sounds like, "Look we did you a solid by electing this black man cause we thought we could shut you up."
Not once in any post have I said I was a "victim". You sound like both of these guys when they have put words in each others mouth. My race has not, is not, and will not be hindrance on my success. What I did say is that there are inequalities that exist between blacks and whites. And as I stated before, if you refuse to believe it, which its pretty apparent you do, then you sir are part of the problem.
Could not agree more. I think it is clear that profiling still exists in some places and the sin of racism is alive and well and there are those guilty in all races. I was a minority white living in a hispanic region and saw glimpses of it aimed at me and have seen it as part of the majority also. I have also been on the receiving end of religious persecution which is now tolerated by many who would decry racism, sadly. Where I have a problem is those charging racism for making legitimate remarks about ways this current president has failed miserably. Where were those voices when George Bush was being castrated much worse in many ways than Obama? False accusations never go over well.
Yeah, you only referred to your victimhood in 4 posts.
As I said, I never said I was a victim...Those are your words...What I detailed is a fact of life. But go ahead and call it what you like, it's obvious your sole intention is to WIN an arguement. Good job champ!
You are correct sir. I will never play in the NBA.
Funny statement! Neither will I...
Sir; you are completely full of all racial self-pity that you simply confuse me for someone else. Never once on this site have I called Obama a Muslim. I question whether his sympathies toward Islam partly drives his foriegn policy; but not for a second do I think he is is Muslim. I never once have called him a cheat. The one virtue that I think he has is his monogamous relation with his wife. I do think he is Anti-American in the traditional sense of the word. His apology tour during his first year convinced me off that. I would say the same thing about Jimmy Carter at this point. I never have questioned his citizenship. Only an idiot would think that a man with a mother whose roots were in Kansas wasn't a citizen. I do wonder where he was actually born; but I always considered that immaterial.
i don't like the man. True. I don't trust the man; and I especially don't trust his Attorney General who I consider to be slime mold political opportunist. He ultimately had to use He will play the race card at the drop of the hat if it furthers his agenda. He had DOJ charges against Black Panthers who were video taped intimidating voters during the 2008 election. He had to invoke executive privilege to shield his involvement in "Fast and Furious" where he blatantly lied about what he knew about the gun running operation that has killed hundreds of innocent Mexicans. I do worry about what will happen if the election is close enough that Obama and Holder can take it to court and the election is decided by the courts.
There is never an excuse for rioting in this country, yet you give pass to every racial riot we've had. . I've never seen a white person excusing mob behavior; but apparently at least for one black its excusable at any moment. That furthers my worry that its a part of the black political dialectic. Jackson and Sharpton have played the card for three decades. Obama plays it through Holder and Valerie Jarrett. It is my opinion that Obama is the most racially divisive President in the past century; but there are others who say the same thing. When extremely liberal lesbians are saying it; there probably is some validity. When a very large AP poll shows that racial divisions have risen over the past four years; there is validity to my perception.
Back to you attack on me. Virtually nothing you said about me is true. I just simply spoke the truth. You have some very serious issues. I don't respond to the race bait card being played.

I want to apologize for your misinterpretation of my using the word "you". It was not meant as you personally, rather than your political party.
There is never an excuse for rioting, and I was not excusing it. However, as well versed in American history as you seem to be, rioting is partly how this nation was created. While as terrible as riots have been, it has been shown to be effective in some cases. You have never seen a person excusing mob behavior? You're probably right, but the actions of the mob causes results. Part of the reason prohibition was ended was due to mob behavior, gambling was legalized in part to mob behavior.
It's funny you bring the AP poll up. The results of that poll showed that it mostly hasn't changed in the four years. The increase was 3 percent. If you want to hang on that as proof of him being racially divisive then be my guest. What that poll also showed is that a higher majority held racial prejudice towards Hispanics also. So I guess in your assumption this is caused by the President as well.
It's amazing how what you have said are speaking truth, but what I have said in response to your truths are attacks towards you. I was not the one that brought up race in the conversation. If I am correct you were. You brought up how if there is a electorate/popular vote split in Romney's favor that it would be disastrous. I asked you what you meant and you brought up the LA riots *10. Did I take offense? Absolutely I did. Why? Because to me, it's like you are basically saying, these people don't know how to do anything but act like animals when something doesn't go their way.
As far as Holder is concerned...I don't like the guy and never have. But you mention that you worry about the vote being close enough for Obama/Holder to take it to court. Don't you think the Romney camp will do the same thing if its that close and doesn't work out in their favor? Absolutely they will, as they should.
With me saying that, I don't feel as if you or anyone else on here has attacked me. I honestly feel to me it has been a healthy conversation, provided you look at things with an open mind. I never have a problem listening to differing views, even if I don't agree with them.
That is correct. You never mentioned the word "victim". What you did over and over was to tell us how mistreated you had been - a "victim" if you will.
Look dude, you are content to use the color of your skin to explain the problems you encounter. If that is how you want to go thru life, fine - just don't expect any sympathy from me.
To be very honest with you, I'm not overcome with 200 years of White guilt and I'll be damned if I'm going to go along with your poor, poor pitiful me crap - In fact, if I wanted to, I can make a case being Black is actually an advantage in our society today..

I mentioned two incidences, but if that is over and over for you, then so be it. As I stated, you are more interested in winning an argument than having an OPEN conversation. That's fine, so does my wife, so I am used to it.
If you would actually READ what was talked about, then you would notice that me explaining my experiences, was not to tell you my "pitiful me crap" but was to REINFORCE the explanation of blacks don't just riot to riot and wouldn't riot because Obama lost the election.
Yes you could could make a case of how being black is an advantage in our society today, but it would not be true totally true, and it would further prove me saying that you only want to WIN an argument. But go ahead if you choose, it really doesn't bother me any. We can have the coversation as long as you want, but you should also explain how it has affected you, because I am genuinely curious and would love to learn something different.
Lets be honest with each other...At the end of the day, when you went to go and cast you ballot or when you go and cast your ballot; how many of you that aren't minorities, went and said "This vote is going to help my minority brothers and sisters." I don't care what your political affiliation is, chances are most didn't even think about it and most don't. So again, what's wrong with looking out for ourselves how we beat see fit?
