Can Republicans Ever Stop Being The ‘Stupid Party’?

Can Republicans Ever Stop Being The ‘Stupid Party’?

Now here’s a worthy project: Speaking to the Republican National Committee recently, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal declared that it was time for the GOP to “stop being the stupid party. It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults…We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. We’ve had enough of that.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, there were few cheers. Today’s GOP thrives on idiot contumely. Nor did the crowd applaud Jindal’s pronouncement that Republicans “must not be the party that simply protects the well off so they can keep their toys. We have to be the party that shows all Americans how they can thrive…We are a populist party and need to make that clear.”

Now exactly what Jindal means by a populist GOP is almost as interesting as what he thinks would constitute an intelligent political conversation. Apart from those attention-getting pronouncements, his speech was basically what you’d expect from a Louisiana governor to a Republican Party shell-shocked by President Obama’s decisive re-election.

You know, Washington bad, Baton Rouge good; taxes bad, business good, government wicked. A lifetime public employee, Jindal scorns the federal government—except, of course, he wants to be president.

Despite Jindal’s superficial appeal, the idea that any Deep South governor advocating the policies he’s championed would be considered a viable candidate for the presidency in 2016 speaks volumes about the Republican Party’s refusal to face reality.

But more about that anon.

Republicans have committed the unpardonable political sin: they believed their own propaganda. Many can scarcely comprehend how most Americans see things.

Last week Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote something shrewd about the right-wing fixation with President Obama’s otherness. It was always a mistake, she said, to claim “that he’s a Muslim, he’s a Kenyan, he’s working out his feelings about colonialism. Those charges were meant to marginalize him, but they didn’t hurt him. They damaged Republicans, who came to see him as easy to defeat.”

They also hurt Republicans among voters who wondered about the character, motives and competence of people who ranted about transparently false allegations.

However, Noonan then proceeded to conjure her own imaginary Obama: a hardcore leftist determined to redistribute income from rich to poor, the striving middle class be damned. “’You didn’t build that,’” she wrote “are the defining words of his presidency.”

That’s right, conspiracy buffs. To Noonan, President Obama’s political legacy consists of a truncated quote yanked out of context to distort his plain meaning: basically that the best restaurant in town couldn’t thrive if customers had to bush hog their own roads to get there.

Why Obama Makes The GOP Panic

If you pay too much attention to opinion polls, as most people do, doubtless you’ve heard that a plurality of voters has judged Barack Obama the worst president since World War II. Thirty-three percent, to be precise, which as it conflates almost exactly with the number of hardcore Republicans, merely tells you something you already

    If the GOP stops being the stupid party, they won’t have any policies at all.

      If the dems stop being the party of lies, evil and schemes, they won’t have any policies at all!!

        Good grief — out spouting you Satanic lies so early? Do you have a Hellish alarm clock that tells you when it’s time to drag your carcass out of bed and go do Satan’s work? Take a break once in awhile — you don’t have to be a hateful, lying bigot every day of your life, you know.

          Liberals can spew BS all over the place, and if someone has a different point of view all you lefties know is attack with your pure hatred and venom. If you paid attention to Lana’s post, it was in reply to Sleeve’s post. Try looking at the whole picture before you make an ASS of yourself.

          • WhutHeSaid

            Why thank you, Ms Helper. When I need your permission to respond to another poster I’ll come knock on your trailer door. In the meantime, in order to prevent looking like an ass-hat yourself — please try to have a point when you post.

          • amazonfan

            How dumb are you? Obama is not a Muslim, but if he was, so what?!! That you think his being a Muslim is some kind of bad thing, and you use it as a smear, means you ARE a racist!!!!

            You’re a loathsome, disgusting Islamophobe, however that isn’t the only example of your KKK racism; you’re referring to another poster as an ‘angry black woman’ also shows your racism.

          • lana ward

            Omuslim admitted he is a muslim in an interview with John Stephonopolis!! He has muslim terrorists working in the WH!!. The angry black woman was to Fern Woodfork, all the things that she calls me, so don’t play stupid! I LIKE Herman Cain, Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Ken Blackwell, JC Watts, Tim Scott, Starr Parker and many other blacks–so don’t call me a racist(like I said all dems do) you are the racist!!!

          • amazonfan

            “Omuslim”

            His name is Obama,you racist POS.

            “admitted he is a muslim in an interview with John Stephonopolis!!”

            How can he, since John Stephonopolis doesn’t exist?!!!

            You’re so dumb you can’t even get the names right.

            BTW, this is not something you admitt; since there is nothing wrong or shameful about being Muslim, one doesn’t admitt it. One simply acknowledges it!

            “He has muslim terrorists working in the WH!!.”

            Name one!

            BTW, I would point out that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists, however KKK bigots like you aren’t interested in facts.

            “The angry black woman was to Fern Woodfork, all the things that she calls me,”

            I couldn’t give a damn what she calls you, you are a racist!

            “so don’t play stupid!”

            The only stupid one here is you. It must be pretty tough to go through life being so dumb!

            “I LIKE Herman Cain, Allen West,”

            Two Islamophobic extremists. No wonder you like them.

            “and many other blacks”

            That you would say that proves, beyond any doubt, that you a racist, not that there wasn’t any doubt considering your Islamophobia, and your comment to Fern.

            “so don’t call me a racist”

            EXCEPT YOU ARE ONE. If you don’t want to be called racist, then stop acting like one!!!

            “(like I said all dems do)”

            Well, yeh, because you are one!!!

            “you are the racist!!!”

            LOL. The stupid KKK racist is calling me a racist! You are a moral and intellectual joke and the best thing you can do for the world is to jump off a bridge.

          • lana ward

            Sorry , his name is George Stephanopoulos.–Omuslim admitts he is a muslim!!

          • amazonfan

            My god, do you ever read what other people say? Obama isn’t a Muslim,
            and if he was, there is NOTHING wrong with that!!!! It’s not
            shameful or wrong, and he wouldn’t admitt it, he would state it
            with pride. God, you are racist (and dumb)!!!!

          • lana ward

            Type in–”George Stephanopoulos, Obama admitts he’s a muslim”—It will take you right to the interview

          • amazonfan

            Uh, no, it never happened. But if it did, so what? If Obama announced that he was a Muslim, who freaking cares? Far better that he might be a Muslim than a Christian extremist like you!

            I’m done. I have better things to do than to respond to an intellectually bankrupt KKK racist like you!

          • P Cullen

            propaganda!! You didn’t do your researc which is typical of those on the Right who prefer to believe Fox lies and hate:
            Origins: Since at least as far back as August 2009, rumors have circulated about plans by Fox News to broadcast a revelatory documentary on Barack Obama; when no such program aired, those rumors led to conspiracy theories that Fox had been pressured by the Obama administration into suppressing its report. (That legend is covered in a separate article on this site.)

            Since the origination of that rumor, the video clip linked above, entitled “Obama Admits He Is a Muslim,” has been circulated on the Internet accompanied by claims that it is the Obama documentary Fox once planned to air — a piece that “Sean Hannity of FOX News has been trying to show” which has been “consistently been blocked by the Obama Administration” and will soon “get pulled from the Internet.”

            In fact, the video clip is none of those things: It wasn’t put together by Sean Hannity, it hasn’t ever been scheduled for airing by Fox News, it doesn’t show Barack Obama admitting he is a Muslim, it hasn’t been the target of suppression by the Obama administration, and it isn’t in any danger of being pulled from the Internet for political reasons. (The video has been freely available for viewing via YouTube for over three years now.)

            The video is actually a compendium of intercut, out-of-context statements taken from various interviews with Barack Obama in which he discusses his childhood exposure to Islam (and Islam in general) and from addresses delivered by President Obama to areas of the world with predominantly Muslim audiences for the purpose of “creat[ing] a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States, but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what’s happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

One being very provable and one drawn from bigotry and hatred and apparently hatched deep within her own rectum. Perhaps it is you who needs to pay attention dear Mary. Your party has been spewing the jobs mantra for many long years now and I have yet to see ANY jobs that have been created by any policy your group has put forth. If the shoe fits wear it proudly.

            And Whats The Killing Part About Rick Perry While He Was Talking About Cutting Government Programs He Was On The Phone At Night Asking Obama For Government Help!! He Was First In Line To Get FEMA Down To Texas Where Half His State Was On Fire!!! So As Far As Stop Being Stupid They Will Never Do That It’s One Of Their Motto”s!! Along With Lying , Stealing , Cheating, And Starting Wars!!!

          • WhutHeSaid

            Yeah, I think that with the help of the evil, vile, despicable Tea Bigots the Republican Party’s behavior has become so disgusting to the majority of Americans that many of the reddest of states are going to turn blue in the years ahead. Stupidity does have consequences.

          • Progressive Patriot

            What have they done to be labeled terrorists, and what are your sources?

          • mah101

            Hmm, I see a pattern here. If they have work for the administration to administer programs that benefit people in the US, and havea name whose origin is in Arabic, they are automatically a “terrorist”

            If, on the other hand, they have a name like lana ward and call the president of the US “omuslim” and a murderer, they are patriotic god-fearing “real ‘muricans”

            Nice grasp of logic and rationalism there, LW.

            Really, try reality – it is every bit as engaging and fascinating as your made up, sorry, pathetic, and scary fantasy world.

          • lana ward

            Dems are hopeless, stupid because you’re lied to by the MSM

          • mah101

            Actually, Lana, I would not call myself a democrat, but if you were to assess my position I think you would call me a liberal (I’m actually rather a centrist, but you know how skewed our debate is today)

            So, speaking for myself, I don’t care how many people are lying, I rely on objective independent and reasoned understanding of the issues in order to determine my positions and information. I don’t rely on the National Memo, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Saul Alinsky, MSNBC, or the People’s Daily. Frankly, I find most of the modern media to be shallow, vapid, and unable to understand and communicate complex issues (though to be fair, many of them try while Fox just ignores the issues and makes up their own).

            So, what I do is called “thinking”. Many of the people in the center and to the left practice it. It seems to account for the vast differences between reality, and the far right’s perception thereof, that is represented in much of the conflicts in our modern political and social discourse. And likely accounts for your inability to understand the reasoned and reality-based positions of those with whom you disagree.

      • rataezo

        Im a Republican but what makes the dems evil? I can’t believe Lincoln was a Republican. I will stay Republican for now but if things don’t change then I will go independent. Can’t see myself becoming a Democrat because I also don’t agree with some of their policies but they are a lot more moderate than the GOP of last year.

As for her sources, she insists everyone look up – I have looked up some of them. Real whacko right wing hate groups.

          A person who likes to cook subscribes to cooking magazines, looks up cooking sites, and watches the cooking show. An outdoorsman is drawn to magazines like “Outdoor Life.” Some woman are drawn to magazines like “Good Housekeeping.” What I am saying is that we go where our interests are. She is a nut so she searches out nut sites.

  • latebloomingrandma

    I believe Gov. Jindal’s message is that the Republicans should just try not to say stupid things, not that they don’t believe them. Take the “legitmate rape” remark. Todd Akin got this from a doctor who was a consultant to the National Right to Life organization, and that is what they they preach. And of course anti-abortion is cemented in their platform. There is also much literature from NARAL that urges women whose pregnancy is a result of rape to have the baby. They are pretty much against abortion for any reason. So essentially, Jindal is saying just keep your mouth shut, not to re-examine the policy. And that is just one example of the “stupid” party policies.

    It’s tempting, especially after one of their own attempts to shock his Party out of some of it’s
    more anti-social , and wildly unpopular ideologies, to say, there! Just what we’ve been saying.
    Finally, a Republican that has the guts to commit the previously unforgivable sin of speaking
    truth to a Party that been living in a universe that no longer exists, if it ever did. But I smell a
    scam. A con, if you will. Republicans are not stupid. Whatever one thinks of the Republican
    Party, you can’t be stupid, and convince nearly half the Country you’re working in their best
    interests, while consistently working, on behalf of that tiny sliver of the population at the very top
    of the economic food chain. Are Republicans really going to stop being the Party that always tries
    to make sure the wealthy get to keep all their toys? Of course not. Are they going to start being a
    a Party that respects the Rights of women to control their own bodies? Or, confronts the gun
    culture, that has turned this Country into an armed camp? What Governor Jindal is getting
    at is Republicans are going to have to be more cautious about the way they talk about these issues.
    Paul Ryan says he believes the majority still thinks Republicans have the best policies. But need
    to do a better job of, “messaging.” In other words, they can keep the same old product, just put
    it in a prettier box next time. Shakespeare says, “A rose by any other name.” I say, a more
    clever scam, is still a scam. No matter how you dress it up.

      Ever since the election, I’ve been hearing about how the Republican party is planning its reform. Yet the only substance I hear from them is about changing the message, not changing the ideas.

      It’s the ideas, republicans. That’s what hurts you.

      They run through all your positions and don’t match your stated ideology of smaller government and fiscal responsibility.

      Just changing the “message” only makes you bigger and more obvious hypocrites.

      Unfortunately, however, there are plenty of low information voters out there (I’m talking about you, Lana and Mary K) that respond to the “message” and are motivated by fear and anger rather than more positive ideals.

      • charleo1

        You’re right, it would increase the hypocrisy. But as we’ve observed, their supporters
        seem to have an incredible tolerance for contradicting positions, with a high level
        of hypocrisy. It’s almost like they’ve agreed, off the record, and between themselves
        that, for example, yes we want a much smaller government that doesn’t infringe on
        people’s Rights. But agree over the issue of abortion, that the State should be very
        invasive, and support an entirely new bureaucracy to monitor women, and their
        doctors, when the State learns conception has taken place. On finances, taxes, and
        the budget. First they will all agree, the Country spends way too much money. But, insist
        there must be no changes to Medicare. The one item that will drive us to insolvency
        if we don’t find ways to curb it’s growing costs. They will advocate for huge tax reductions
        for corporations. Reasoning, we are in a global competition for jobs. So we should
        make sure we have the lowest tax obligations in the world. But then, almost in the
        same breath, opine what a dangerous world we live in, and must continue to invest
        trillions in a military, geared to fight yesterday’s wars. And any reductions there, are
        automatically characterized as gutting the military!

    I am going to share something with you all….Reagan..was a democrat before becoming a republican…Nancy, his wife went to a fortune teller…and this person told her…that if he would change parties..from democrat to republican he would get elected…some peopel will go to any means to become president…but, what I am hearing here..and by the way..the people that I have dealt with from India…are very very gracious people…and they do articulate very well..so, don’t take that away from Jindal…I am seeing a man here that he will probably change parties from being a republican to a democrat…wanting to in the first place..because he disagrees with them totally..and he then not in 2016 but, maybe later on…think about running for President…not everyone that speaks their mind has a desire to become President…believe me..so, leave well enough alone on this one..because he was just saying the truth about how the republicans have been acting…he is with the program as other Americans are seeing it.
    He had the right as all of here to have an opinion and to say what he is seeing that he disagrees with…so, don’t put any more into what he has said..than it is…He is still a good man…in my opinion…agreeing with what I have seen in his own party…and please don’t be prejudiced…it is against God’s Law….He loves all of us no matter what color we are or nationality…etc.

        What makes anyone think these Pre-Neanderthals are going to give up a belief in a religion. Christianity has been brainwashing people for over 2000 years with fear and keeping people ignorant.

        All it takes to believe in a religion is to just cow-tow down to some phony religious leader and let them decide for you how to live and what to believe.

Educate the republican electorate and the ignorance will subside by a margin but many are unteachable. They just need to be regarded as insignificant and they will go the way of the Klan.

    3. They stop going for the lowest common denominator.
    4. They realize that compromise is not evil and we do it every day with friends, family, spouses and in business.
    5. Name-calling and claiming everything the Democrats or anyone who disagrees with them is evil.

    The answer to question will the Republicans ever stop being the “stupid party,” is NO. To stop being so stupid, as a group, they would have to have a sudden and soul shattering insight that would make fundamental shift in how they view the world. They are biologically, intellectually not capable of ever having a real soul shattering insight about themselves or their “values.” They have proven that over and over again.

    The Republican Party has 9 Tenets: bigotry, hypocrisy, elitism, fascism, greed, corruption, incompetence, arrogance and insanity….everything they do can be explained by at least one (usually more) of those tenets. Another word for incompetence is “stupidity”, from which we derive the word “stupid”. Can the Republican Party stop being the “Stupid” party? What do you think? Sleeve is correct when he wrote that, “if the GOP stops being the stupid party, they won’t have any policies at all”. Lana Ward, on the other hand, proves several of the GOP tenets true when she wrote, “If the dems stop being the party of lies, evil and schemes, they won’t have any policies at all!” Mainly, that statement proves the hypocrisy tenet. Lana employed the favorite trick of hypocrisy, “Projection”, in her statement. Projection is a psychiatric term for taking a weakness of yours and “projecting” upon your opponent or someone you don’t like. When the GOP finally decides to stop being the party of bigotry, hypocrisy, elitism, fascism, greed, corruption, incompetence, arrogance and insanity, they’ll stop being the “Stupid” party…I’m not holding my breath….

    There is none so blind than he who won’t see. Judging from some of these posts, I have come to believe that some people are wearing blinders especially if they think that the Republican party cares about anyone who is not worth a million dollars or more. It is sad that people are so full of prejudice and hate that they don’t realize that they are being duped. Judging from some of the posts, I know that severa people are and were in the forty-seven percent that Governor Romney wrote off during the election and I am sure that you know to whom I am referring, those who spew rhetorical venom and racist statements about the President and the democratic party. Hate is a disease much like cancer:it eats the person who hates. It is hard to fathom how people can harbor so much hate especially when it’s so much easier to love. You don’t have to have a reason to love, you just love because it is good. You must keep reminding yourself why you hate someone, oft times it is for a nebulous reason. When you hate someone, it is obvious that you don’t love yourself. Thou shalt love the Lord with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great Commandment And the second is like unto it. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two Commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Who is my neighbor? Ask yourself that question. It is not just the one who lives next door or in your neighborhood. May God bless each of you and remember, you don’t have to love to give, but you can’t love without giving. Be Blessed and have a Blessed Day.

    Meanwhile, Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts proposed the opposite: Raising the income tax to cut the sales tax. To which even some of the millionaires said “Sure, I’ll make up the losses with more business.”

    Jindal’s reverse proposal was nothing more than another shallow ploy to further enrich his wealthy donors, and his speech about not being the stupid party was nothing more than a shallow ploy to try and distance himself from the stupid even as he continues to pander to it.

    Jindal isn’t the only Southern Republican who is looking at the White House with longing eyes and an aching yearn. However, hopefully he and the others will go the way of Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, and Herman Cain. Gingrich even decided against pursuing the Senate seat to be soon vacated in Georgia – no cahones, I guess. Rick Perry’s own Texans consider him one of the least popular politicians in the state. And Herman Cain should never have left the pizza parlor. John McCain used to be a well-respected independent; however, since he got his head handed to him on a platter when he went up against Bush in a primary, he seems to have changed. There are a few Republicans who have the balls to stand up to the party of no, like Michael Bloomberg and Chris Christie, but I seriously doubt that they are leading a groundswell movement.

    This whole article is centered on Gene Lyons quote from Obama:

    “We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives,” he said, “any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other through Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, these things do not sap our initiative. They strengthen us…..They do not make us a nation of takers. They free us to take the risks that make this country great.”

    Since the GOP is too stupid to realize this, they are doomed.

    Here in Louisiana, Booby Jindal is a state-wide embarrassment. For him to call his own party “the stupid party” is the height of hypocrisy. It’s like the tub telling the toilet: “I see just as much ass as you do, but I don’t have to take all of that shit!” Booby Jindal’s idea of good government is hacking away at education, health care for the elderly, mental health facilities, Medicaide, and safety net programs that every worker in Louisiana pay from their own taxes to ensure that they would be taken care of in times of need. The savings he accrue from those cuts are dolled to corporations and industries in Louisiana that support the Republican/Tea Bag agenda, corporations and industries who bring in their own in-house workers and deprive valuable jobs to Louisianaians, corporations that pollute the waters and contaminate the soil of Louisiana, enhancing “Cancer Alley” along Saint Charles Parish. His latest comedy was to eliminate the state’s long held income tax and raise state sales taxes to 16 cent on the dollar. Doing this would have enhanced the bottom line for industries and corporations but encumbered every Louisiananian without raising wages for an increased cost of living. It was an idiot move that turned state’s legislators against him. Every major newspaper that endorsed Booby Jindal are lamenting their decisions and are voicing it in their editorial columns. Booby Jindal is a joke and always has been. Even Goerge W. Bush realized that Booby Jindal wasn’t all he was cracked up to be and pushed him out of his administration in 2002. He castigates the Republican/Tea Party as the party of stupid, but he is the poster-boy of astronomical stupidity and ineptness. Louisiana only elected him because at the time Louisiana had turned red, but now their faces are red with embarrassment to have this hack as a governor. Somehow, in some way, Booby Jindal has convinced himself that he could someday be president, but just like his party, he’s some kind of stupid.

      I mean, how stupid can people get.

    I am a White Gay Man. I totally agree with you that my race is probably one of the most hateful and bigoted races on earth.

    But, people of color aren’t the only race of people who have experienced white hatred and bigotry. We’ve even discriminated against our own race in the name of the all mighty dollar bill, ignorance and power-hungry man men.

    And, YES, this is Nothing But The Truth!

      Are you a white happy man? I thought gay meant “happy”, “joyous”, “bright”.

      • Michael Kollmorgen

        Yea, I know!

        I get a kick out of the old black and white movies when the word gay is used, haha.

        The Gay Community sort of comandeered the word Gay to mean being homosexual. I don’t know why we did either.

        Eh, whatever…………….

    Carvi3, a tree is known by its fruit. If it had rotten roots, it will bear rotten fruit. Even if Jindal switches parties, his actions will determine what he is. His actions so far and as always are that of a Republican/Tea Bag butcher, hatchet man, and murderer. If you deliberately denied someone the means that would save his/her life, and that person dies as a result of your action, that person has participated in a murder., ending the life of someone who could have been saved had he not been denied a chance at life. What are you doing when you love your children and family but hate your neighbors? Think about that.

    You have to love the National Memo. They love the division in our country and love keeping their sheep hating the repubs. Despite all the democrats do wrong they never report it. They love to keep the hate for the right going!

    You know Bobby Jindal and others like him remind me of the time in Florida right after hurricane Katrina hit. I went to work for the main Insurance repair company that moved in to make the repairs, they were there the very next day, set up and running, I went to work for one of the guys, there were six all told and all from Texas, and would you believe it they were all related, they rented a big warehouse in Miami and were bringing in materials by the train loads, each man took four or five men under them as superintendents and each group had at least one man that could speak spanish because most of the damage occured in the southern part of Miami,Fort lauderdale area, the guy I worked for (I won’t name names) showed me about twenty checks and none of them was for less than $175.000, and the checks were just pouring in. Before these guys left Miami they had accumilated at least $ 8.000.000 dollars each plus they stayed in mansions on Miami Beach paying outragious rents, they bought eight semi-trailors and fully equipted them with all the computers, phones, calculators, and numerious other machines to keep them informed of any disaster that occcured in the United States, plus they bought new heavy duty Pickups, they bought motorized water bikes, Rvs, they just didn’t really know whereas to spend their money on and they still cleared over $8mil each, I was really optomistic I figured we might get a hefty bonus but really disappointed we got two weeks pay, and as soon as they could they started bringing in people from Texas to replace us, and they had an Ace in the hole they had a direct line to the top insurance companies in the country, talk about graft, and their job was easy they either repaired the property or settled with the owner on a set cost to repair and would give the owner a check for an agreed price. Either way they made out like bandits, that’s Republicans for you, yes they were Repubs.

    Hey Michael, you asked how stupid the people of Louisiana could be , well they elected a Ku Klux Klans man to represent them in congress and a Mayor that just recently got indicted for playing with the people’s money and various other offenses, Louisianans don’t hold any records for intellegence, thru out history this state has had someone in high office in trouble with the law constantly that’s why they have such a low rating.

  • bchrista

    Before we get into a racial discourse here lets try to get some facts out in the open, #1 the blacks that first came here were the product of their own people in Africa it was a battle of the strongest tribes that were constantly over running another weaker tribe and making them prisoners and when the white man interred their country they saw a way to get rid of the competion, sell them to the white man, and the white man saw a way to profit from this venture, they loaded up their boats and brought them here to do a job that no white man was equipted to do, pick their cotton, fruits and vegetables in the hot blazing Sun and they bought these people at a very cheap price, some plantation owners set time limits for releasing their slaves because that is what they were considered and these people headed North, some slaves were treated well by their owners, the were given plots of land to farm for themselves, others were treat like animals constantly being beat within an inch of their lives just for looking at a white woman or for some other minor indisgrations, they treated their animals better than they did their own slaves, but all in all the bottom line is that they were sold by their own people to people that treated them worse than animals a situation that should not been allowed in the name of decenseyand humanity, as it’s been called but what is never mentioned is that this treatment wasn’t confined to the just the black man a lot of white families also suffered this indignation if you were poor and had no home or property you could be sentenced to servitude by a court bought by the rich and the sentence for this inability to provide for youerself was indenture to a plantation to serve your sentence also known as man’s inhumanity to man and though there is still a great racial divide the problem ascerbated not by the olderwhite man( although there are still some old time Southerners) their are a lot of white that defend the black mans right to be treated equal, and the same applies to the older blacks some still harbor ill feelings toward the white man and maybe in another 100 years all this hatred maybe a thing long forgotten, folks it’s taken 300 years to get this point, where there is some toleration of each other (today you find whites marrying blacks and vice versa, that would have been unheard of 30 -40 years ago somethings take longer than others, however, we have a problem that we refuse to accept among the races,our young are growing out of control and no one is really doing anything about it we tend to blame the other guy if this problem isn’t faced head on who can tell what the future holds these young people commit 85% of all crimes commited they commit 75% of all street shootings. getting rid of guns is another subject we can discuss later.

  • bchrista

    Hey NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, I am in accord with some of what you posted, however, before one can toss stones, one must survey his own back yard and do a GI job at home, right now black youths are killing more people (blacks) than any other race at any time they are involved in peddling more dope than any one else (crack), they commit more crimes that any one else in the name of getting even for what the white man did to his race, 90% of them couldn’t tell you what the hell they are talking about only what information has been passed down through the ages they aren’t aware that a lot of white families also suffered along side of the blacks, but what the hell any excuse is better than none, so like the President keeps repeating we must work together to acheive our goals, where ever we live lets figure out who is providing the guns and where they are coming from if you cut off the head of the snake the body will die, and if we, the people can put a dent in that problem, then we have helped the President remove one of his problem and that’s a start, because a lot of the guns come from homes only we deny it, put the Saturday night special out of business and you have solved 75% of the problem, remember a AK47 is a bulky weapon so is an AR15, but a UZI is compact and fires a ton of bullets before reloading and, a favorite of youths, I don’t get it when I was a kid growing up if you had a beef with someone you met at a place agreed to by both parties and you duked it out when it was over you could either shake hands or just go home with an ass whipping and learn how to do better next time, and most of the time there were people there to make sure it was a fair fight, today they settle differences with a drive by and a UZI and then they brag about what they just did, the word man face to face with just your hands to settle it never crossed their mind, nothing but a bunch of cowards.

  • bchrista

    In reply to IRANDY the first amendment does not give anyone the right to call anyone names that can not be proven in a court of law that is called blasphemy and if it continues could give cause for damages in a court of law if proven that it has ruined a persons reputation, JOE HAM1 Iexpect anything and everything from you, you have proven that you are an unadultarated asshole I would venture to say that anyone could take a poll of the whole country and not find one person that can fabricate, distort, and tell a lie better that the commentators on Fox News, and maintain such a straight face as if they were telling the truth, I still remember the idea to blame Obama for the fiasco at Delphi, or the out right lie by Dick Morris about a landslide Romney Victory, and later faced with the truth stating that he was only trying to pump up the Republican voters but, I realize that your are such an idiot that you believe all the lies you post. Mr. Solomon Boyd if we can ever get the assholes in the Congress and the Senate to get off their respective Asses and work on the Jobs Bill the President has presented to them on several occasions you might have a chance to find a job, I see Lana (Anal) Ward has found a word that they like NACHUMLIST cause they repeated it so many times, however, they posted two different spellings of the word (nachumlist, and nachuslist) which . is right I used the word they since no one is sure of gender Lana belongs to.

    • idamag

      bch, One thing you have right. There are laws to protect people from ugly lies. They pertain to the public media and newspapers. If it is said on radio or television it is called, “defamation of character.” If it is written, such as the “Swift Boat” lies, then it is called “Libel.” Most people would not like to give the lies credence so they ignore them hoping they will go away. I wish people wouldn’t. The only way to show the ignorance that lies are being said and published is to punish those who do so.

    I was always taught since high school that the Presidents Cabinet Members generally make the decisions for him. They report information back and make recommendations. Isnt this true? If it is, Obama isnt pulling the strings. I have always suspected that he isnt. What do you think? Are members of his party/cabinet making the real hard decisions, just like all other Presidents? I honestly think this government is a game. The real decisions are made behind doors and so called Democracy is for thier amusement because its designed to keep minds occupied and distracted from whats really going on.

    Jindal needs to go back to his swampland, all the swill he spews. I admit I was stupid for 50+years while I was voting democrat. This year 2012, I voted for the lesser of two evils. A true American or a man wanting to destroy us from within, which is happening as I post. The racism, the hate mongering and the class warfare used in the Dem. campaign has only gotten worse since January. For a half black person, BHO certainly knows how to divide this nation. Such a shame too. Where will we be in 2016???We might not even be the USA then. You all like that????See what happens when all the free stuff dries up. Who will privide a teet for you to suck on??? This nanny government is going broke. Face it, people, we cut our own throats.
