    For my critics ... oh well! Another race post ..... what can I say?

    But after hearing Michelle speak at a predominantly black university graduation this weekend, I am :BangHead: as to one glaring issue that has haunted their two terms as President and First Lady.

    My one question is simply this: Have they done more to divide this nation, racially speaking, then to unite it? I really believe that the majority of those who voted for Obama felt that the nations first black POTUS would actually be a uniting force. And to hear their continued rhetoric, it is clear, to me, that they have done the nation a great disservice, at least when it comes to fostering improved racial relationss.

    So what do you say? I've given my views, and am interested in yours. Shalom!

    You can't criticize a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes. How would you like to be stuck in government housing in DC with nothing to do but take luxury vacations every two or three weeks and play round after round of golf? Do you have no compassion, RD2?

    You can't make a federalized police force without breaking a few eggs.

    Problem . . . racial tension and civil unrest.

    Reaction . . . OMG the gubmint has to do something!

    Solution . . . give gubmint more money, more power and more control.

    All I will say is we have got to do something to get Pizza back on the lunch menu in our schools.

    It shows a complete bias against our Italian immigrants who have made important contributions to this country.

    Bring back Pizza! Bring back Pizza! (everbody now...)

    Bring Back Pizza!



    ...oh, sorry, lost my head there for a minute...


    God bless.

    You can't play identity politics without dividing people.
    I find it so Ironic that Liberals say they hate labels but then all they do is label people. An obvious example is how many letters are continually being added to the LGBTQ...... group. Honestly I don't know how anyone can remember all the letters anymore. But they just have to keep creating more and more groups so that more and more and more people can feel like they are a victim class and need Big Brother to take care of them.

    Washington and the media excel at dividing people.

    Any voices calling for unity are immediately dismissed by both as belonging to those on the "fringe" of society.

    And we believe them.

    And now back to our regularly scheduled program of bashing liberals and conservatives and blacks and whites and Christians and Muslims and . . .

    THAT gets on my nerves. Every time I turn around, another letter has been added to that group. I'm just gonna start calling them the "unstraight". :laugh:

    I think "UnCis" would be the more politically correct term ;)

    The federal government feeds itself on division and alienation. Why should the Obama's be any different?

    In another forum I help administer, I just banned someone for posting a picture of the President and his wife in monkey outfits. It served no purpose, there was no issue to being discussed. The office is due respect. I did not vote for him, and oppose his policies, as I do the liberal Republicans like McConnell and Speaker Bonehead.

    I think the reason is to have more in their group - until they have a majority.
    What I don't understand; if they want others to accept them the way they are, why they don't support polygamy? So would that be LGBTQP ?
