    yes we can

    Yes, but if he pushes that legislation how can congress get away from it? Who wants to tell their constituents "No, i don't want you to know where I'm spending your money"? When Obama and Coburn got the google for government deal passed, it was secretly stifled by leadership in both parties at...

    yes we can

    YouTube - Yes We Can - Barack Obama Music Video The difference between Barack and Hillary is simple. Hillary sees the presidency as a job for her to do. Barack sees it as the fulcrum of a movement led by the American people. There policy prescriptions may be similar, but their ideas on...

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    Enough time for what? To be able to sleep by the side of the road a little ways up from new orleans with a class 4 hurricane about to hit? How fast do you think these people can travel with toddlers and senior citizens? We aren't talking about a pack of marathoners here. They would have...

    An Open Email from Michael Moore

    If FEMA were setup and run correctly? Doesn't Bush have an obligation to make sure the guy in charge of FEMA will have a clue as to whether FEMA is set up and run correctly or not? ESPECIALLY after 9/11? It's been 4 years, there has been ample time to have that agency ramped up and utterly...

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    Umm, have you ever tried walking outside during a class 4 hurricane? Me neither. No matter how diligently they walked they would not have been out of harms way when the hurricane hit. Shelter in a bad place is better than dying of exposure outdoors in a hurricane 30 miles up the road.

    What Extreme Right Wing

    Wow. How goes the jihad Jamesrage? Killed any infidels lately? Nice of you to encourage the non extremist muslims of the world to take up arms and join the mullahs by calling them fake. I guess if your a muslim but not an islamofascist you must have something wrong with you. Personally, i...

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    "whitewashing" has to do with painting. It is a thicker white undercoat of paint, used so that flaws don't showthrough, and to hide any defects in the underlying structure. To say something is "whitewashed" has nothing to do with race, it has to do with hiding obvious defects in the character...

    Who do you think would be best for 2008?

    Re: SENATOR GEORGE ALLEN FOR PRESIDENT AND V.P. If you really want him to be president, I would advise him not to take Bush's offer, should it prove to be true. Being too close to Bush will be a poison pill in the 2008 election. Rice is the only one in the Bush admin who would stand a...

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    Ya know, I think all ya really need is empathy. Granted, its not everyone's strong suit. But I can certainly imagine a life besieged by crime and drugs, almost everyone out of work, noone seems to care, people who were pushed through school by bureaucrats without ever really learning, parents...

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    As far as the after effects of displacement, I think you are probably right. If New Orleans is rebuilt it will basically be the "Old New Orleans" theme park. New Orleans as a vital, living, historical city is pretty much done. The poor who lived there will not be returning. I still don't...

    Ultra moderate

    Well, if someone "simply refuses" they are outta luck and should get no help. More than likely though the vast majority of the able bodied poor could be turned around through drug and alcohol rehab, education and job training. Help them find what they are good at, clear their head, and get...

    Dems - You Cant Pin All Our Troubles on Bush

    Yup, the vast majority of Republicans and Dems are like the Globetrotters and the Washington Generals. One side seems to win, the other side seems to lose, but they all have the same signature on their checks. ;)

    Afrimericans And American Racism Hiding In Plain Sight

    I think you may be reading too much into this. Its not about race, its about class. And its less about malice, more about a failure to consider peoples circumstances. The evacuation order sort of rested on the belief that people would just jump into their cars with some food and bottled water...
