  1. I find it sad that people on this forum have their head buried so far up their ass they cannot recognize prejudice when it is in front of their face. To say like "chooser" does that slavery should play no part in black development as a culture, and that the Jim Crow laws of the south should be completely disregarded is ignorance in its truest form. Saying things like "there was no slavery in 1964" gave me a great laugh, really chooser you are just finding that out? I am not sure if it ignorance or just plain hatred or the need to feel you are better than someone of another race. It is not just chooser at least he admits that the book "Black Like Me" brought up horrible conditions that blacks lived in, his is just an ignorance of phycology and history. There are black people who hate white's, and white's who hate blacks, what makes it tough for blacks is there are many more whites than blacks, and it is difficult for a minority to push its racist agenda onto a majority. Chooser does bring up half a good point when he talks about Japanese Americans being treated poorly and overcoming it, where he falls down on his point is he forgets that before ww2 Japanese were treated with the usual "he is different" attitudes by whites but they were not hanged, killed or beaten. WW2 of course changed that and Japanese were unfairly interned, however after WW2 it was a total turn around, we rebuilt their country, and this after they killed thousands of Americans, in fact they were treated much better than blacks in this country who fought against the Japanese. So to say that racism is over in America is wishful thinking at best. In fact to say that racism is over in America is dangerous, ignorant and shows a total lack of historical thought, and makes observations about the future suspect at best.
  2. either Love that scary pic, yes she was a genuine Jew hater and never tried to hide it either. She is now dead and the world is better off
  3. I don't know if you are trying to relate this to the Martin, Zim case but if you are I will say---why would an armed woman stalk a supposed rapist, who she never met and never hurt her in any way?
  4. Japanese Americans did a great job building back their own country with major help from America. Japanese were wrongly interned in this country for a short period of time, and like all minorities were unfairly treated. They were how ever not dragged from their native country and made into slaves. If after the civil war white people said "ok Lincoln freed the slaves, lets treat them with the dignity and respect we treat our fellow white citizens" I may agree with you, but for most blacks and whites it was business as usual without the slave ownership involved, It was really only until the 60's that laws were passed ending state and country discrimination. Of course passing Laws are great but you cannot pass a law that will change the bigots heart. I think as the older white people die off and younger progressive people come into play that will help black people "get over it". The President said a very wise thing, a statement that smart parents tell their children. You cannot know how a man thinks or acts until you put yourself in his shoes.
  5. Did any of you ever read that book? It was about a White male writer who darkened his skin and went to live in the Deep South as a Black man. I think it was written in 1960. I read it many years ago. Mr. Griffin was amazed at what life was like for Black men in the South ( probably wouldn't have been much different in other parts of the USA ). He never realized how much prejudice and hatred they faced until he walked a mile in their shoes. I beleive this is what President Obama is talking about. He is trying to convey how much different everyday life is for White vs. Black men. I don't think he is trying to fan the flames of racial strife. The name of the book is "Black like me" by John Howard Griffin I read it, great book, scared the bejesus out of me even though I am white, and did a lot to shape my future thinking. I was never so relieved to be a white person in America
  6. LOL the cons are dumb but not that dumb, it would be like running Ted Nugent for republican president
  7. The Arrogance of Authority A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas , and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher said, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there.....", as he pointed out a distant location. The DEA officer verbally exploded, saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... on ANY land!! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear...... do you understand???" The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's enormous Santa Gertrudis bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that the officer would be gruesomely gored before he reached safety. The man was clearly terrified. The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs..... (I just love this part....) "Your badge........ show him your BADGE!" .
  8. I suggest you take this one step further, write a letter to the IRS and tell them what you think, go on son, be a man and tell mr big brother that you are going to stand up to them LOL
  9. I am on the "left" and although bush was a tempting target being from oil, I blamed the Oil companies, it seems I am in the minority of all people. Both the right and the left blame Supply/Demand, Oil Speculation, Mideast unrest, global warming, lack of regulation, or Obama etc. The oil companies and the media have done a beautiful job of deflecting criticism and the fools in this country have bought in.
  10. Cap started out as a wonderful idea, all as you had to do was work hard and you could be rich, and if you were not rich well you could still make a living and be comfortable. Besides said the capitalist look at Russia and these other countries with their extreme form of socialism, they are run by dictators, and we are free. Well someone said that some freedom is great and freedom without limits is chaos. We are now going through the chaotic period. In theory as Ayn Rand espoused cap is a exciting concept in reality the rich become richer and the poor become many
  11. Now that McCain is coming to the end of his service it is nice to see him becoming honest again, John welcome back to the human race
  12. Gas prices are way to high, I find it amazing that hardly anyone blames the rich oil companies, we are getting to the point in this country where we worship celebs and ceo's and we despise the rest of us for being in the middle class
  13. My point was that if you think the gov could not get ahold of Verizon's addresses in short order than it is you who is deluded, if you think that your privacy is somehow just now being invaded because the gov wants to register your gn than you are being naïve,and living in Disney land-perhaps that is why they call you goofy
  14. "We support protecting our kids with solutions that work" I agree 100% our children's protection should be paramount. I would be in favor of a "highly qualified" guard to work at our elementary schools. We had better be prepared to shell out tax payer money though if we really want that, what I do not want to see is teachers carrying guns that could be stolen or usedbya unstable teacher. How many parents though want an armed guard at a school? Maybe 90%? Oh no that is the people who want background checks
  15. "We support all these actual solutions" that's good to know , it puts you one step above congress, don't cheer though cause their approval rating is like 11%. Do you support the army going in and taking everyone's guns away, from the collector to the criminal-to hard core you say?, not libertarian enough you say? Do you want to get rid of gun laws altogether? To wild west you say, or maybe you are happy with that? 90% of Americans agree that "enforceable" background checks should be in place-If 100 Americans were in a desert dying of thirst and a pristine lake appeared in front of them prob only 70% would agree to drink from it! Perhaps we need to discuss why we in American need 300 mil guns and perhaps after figuring out the problem we can work on a solution.
  16. "We support revitalizatiion of mental health laws to keep dangerous people at bay" Revialization? Ok, The fact is Regan thought mental health care was to expensive and cut spending dramatically. thousands of crazies were let out and unstable people today are not able to get help and are on the streets. They are able to buy guns at stores, shows and get them from their unstable mom. Supporting mental health laws and doing something about it are two different things
  17. "Yes. It's a federal law, that was called the Brady Bill" well I guess that goes to Larry's next statement "we support enforcing our existing laws rather than letting gun toting criminals plea down and walk" The fact is we are not supporting our existing laws and that includes Background checks, when congress votes on if we should have background checks that means then know it is not being enforced, and when the nra says anyone should be allowed to buy a gun they know it is not being enforced and want to keep it that way.
  18. "We support lawful citizens' right to bear arms without government harrassment of them" Lawful citizens should have the right to have guns in their homes to protect themselves, Guns however are dangerous and as such should be registered. I work for Verizon and we have the name and address of everyone who has a Verizon phone and I would not consider a cell phone dangerous-(except in the hands of a teen ager who is ringing up gigs of data not under wi fi which her parents will have to pay for later)
  19. "we have background checks" really? in every part of the country? Gunshows have background checks?, are they the same in every state?
  20. Lol, I love the cons, they love the baby in the womb, but once he or she is out they hate it.
  21. In a perfect world army comes in takes everyone's guns and I mean everyone. Anyone caught with a gun life imprisonment with no chance of parole-Harsh? very, effective? very.
  22. I joined a few mo ago and have had a chance to look over some topics in the NHB room from a couple of years ago, it seems as if there were people back then who had some intelligence both on the left and the right (although the intel was higher on the left LOL)---oh they still insulted each other but not like today. Most of those people have either left or have not posted in a while. The haters seem to be the only ones left-shame

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
