REPUBLICAN opposition to Obama is rooted in racism.

REINALDO RIVERA IS sitting nice and fat at the prison on death row. He gets all his needs met, and then some. If he ever decides he doesn’t want to live and attempts suicide, he immediately gets moved to a high-priced crisis cell, given high-priced medication, and lives complete with air conditioning and 24-hour observation. You have no idea how well these scum bags are catered to in prison. And, all at your taxpayer expense!

WHAT HAS TO happen to bring about a change to the Interstate 20 state line bridge? It’s a deathtrap.

RANT TO WALTER Williams. Since you have no training in climate science, you should leave pronouncements on global warming to them.

IF YOU’RE IN SUCH a hurry to pull out from your side street in the morning without stopping, don’t be surprised if you’ve already been killed. Or worse, killed other people who were minding their own business.

I’M SURPRISED ABOUT black Democrats saving Mississippi Republican Sen. Thad Cochran.

SPORTS WRITERS, I know your main man, Tiger Woods, is back playing golf, but there are other players who deserve to be written about. Most people want to see pictures of other players doing well. Be fair and let all talent be written about. No more blathering about Woods.

WJBF TELEVISION watchers, it is not your television. They have very low volume on their station. You can’t hear what they are saying.

DON’T TAKE ANY pills that haven’t been on the market for seven years. I get good pills and bad pills, and they have wonderful information.

I HAD AN AUTOMOBILE wreck. I called 911, and the woman wanted to know what color my truck was, what was my tag number, what color was his truck, what was his tag number, how many people were in the truck. It doesn’t matter about all that; just send the policeman out and he can straighten all that out when he gets here. She said if I don’t cooperate she wouldn’t send anyone out. A policeman drove up and it took me three times to tell her that the police were already there. She was too busy asking me questions that didn’t have anything to do with anything she needed to know. Do they have people training them to ask stupid questions or do they do it on their own? That department needs to be looked at.

"REPUBLICAN opposition to Obama is rooted in racism."

It's possible that some of it is, but it's certain that's the motivation for that kind of claim.

Your statement is unquestionably race based.

You might consider turning up your volume. Then, if later you find it too loud on another station, turn it back down.

Works for me....

So, then all the horrible names Mr. Bush was called, the lies that were told about him and all the failures of this administration that are blamed on Mr. Bush are racist. Works both ways.

$3.7 Billion taxpayer dollars wanted by Obama to fix HIS Mess

I have been listening to various news (CNN, MSNBC & FOX) they all pretty much have ran stories of other Democrats calling the MESS President Obama's Katrina.

The Presidents repeated comments of Amnesty, open borders, the Dream Act may have been made with typical Liberal good intentions, but were ILL THOUGHT-OUT in regards to the ramifications further down the road they would cause or maybe not.

We now have seen over 150,000 8-21 y/o's illegally crossing the border, with increased numbers dying in the process. (Google for yourself for photos and news articles)

This Political maneuver has resulted in NO place to put them along the border, so they were shipped all over the USA to be housed and
fed.

A few minutes ago TV showed us why the Oklahoma Congressman was turned away from earlier in the week from inspecting the Ft. Sill detention center. Over 2000 kids and Young Adults (21 and under) crammed into a place meant for 400. Supplies running low and plumbing plugged and etc..

No wonder the Army post commander illegally refused access to US Congressman to see the filth and crappy conditions Obama's Illegal invitees are having to endure.

Now to top all this MESS off.
We learned about 1 Billion will be used to setup quick immigration courts and hire lawyers to determine if the Illegals get to stay.

It is beginning to look like this political stunt may have backfire on President Obama based only on the number of Southern Democrats distancing themselves from him and the problem.

Now an additional point to ponder.
While we are busy being pointed to look right, I wonder what is going on to the Left.

The scientists who are funded

The scientists who are funded by the government and have been found to be fudging the facts should be believed! Methinks not. When it's cold in the winter, hot in the summer and we have the usual number of hurricanes, floods, and droughts, don't weewee on my leg and tell me it's raining.

The latest report on the ice in the arctic is that it has doubled. I don't hear the media talking about that. I remember about 50 years ago we were supposed to be going into an ice age.

Ranter Number #1

I believe Chris Rock a Black Comedian said it pretty good on Nov 2012.

On Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC show, comedian Chris Rock said many of President Barack Obama’s characteristics match those generally associated with whites.

“Hi, I’m Chris Rock with a special message for white people,” Rock said. “In times like these, you need a white president you can trust. And that white president’s name is Barack Obama. Let’s take a look at the facts — for the first two years of his life, Barack Obama was known as ‘Barry,’ which is the third-whitest name on earth, right after Cody and Jeff. And these are the white people who raised Barry — Madelyn and Stanley Dunham. They are so white they have to wear sunglasses because they are hurting each other’s eyes.”

“After college, Barry went into black neighborhoods in Chicago to try to organize people,” Rock continued. “How white is that? Black people don’t go into black communities. We don’t have to. We’re already there. Look at him — playing golf, body surfing, wearing mom jeans, dancing with Ellen. Barack Obama supports gay marriage. Most black men don’t even support straight marriage. President Obama has a dog. But is it a pit bull? Is it a Rottweiler? No. it’s a Portuguese water dog. And he named him Bo, after one of the Dukes of Hazard. And let’s not forget, Barack Obama is whiter than Snooki, the tanning mom and Tara Reid.”

“Even Mitt Romney is blacker than Obama,” Rock continued. “This is Obama’s family. And these are the Romneys. Look at that — kids, cousins, aunts, uncles. Mitt Romney’s family has more people in it than a Tyler Perry movie.”

“If you want a white president, I got a polo wearing, Hawaii-living, home beer-brewing, league bowling guy for you — Barry Obama, he’s juuuuuuuust white,”.

So now can Whites be Racist of a 5/8's Socialist White Guy with 1/8 Arab and 2/8 African in him?

Immigration mess

The dems are trying to whitewash this influx by peddling that these immigrants are good for our economy. They are uneducated so cannot be beneficial to any of our professional positions - meaning no contribution to our sciences, engineering, medical professions; they have brought diseases with them that will cost millions in medical expenses; and they send most of the money they earn back "home". How is our money leaving our country good for our economy?

No, they just raise the kids, do the yard work, and clean the houses of the professionals, so that the professionals can contribute to our sciences, engineering, medical professions.

There is nothing good about being incarcerated on Death Row. It is not as cushy as the ranter thinks.

However, my opinion is that they are hanging on to him because they are hoping he'll tell them about more murders that he committed- because he has. That girl that disappeared from Columbia is thought to be another one of his victims.

I'd inject him and look him right in the face when I did it. And never feel a qualm of regret.

They thought that Junior Downs committed more murders too than just the two boys, there's missing children in the CSRA that they think he got, too. When he was captured in Warner Robbins, a NAPSD officer told me, "We were hoping that he would try to escape so that we could shoot him."

"The dems are trying to whitewash this influx....

....by peddling that these immigrants are good for our economy."

The democrats will say anything and do anything to confuse the issue. There are a couple of simple rules we should all keep in mind in watching this scenario unfold.

First, this was no surprise. The Administration set it up, prepared for it, and set the scheme in motion. Of that there is no doubt.

Second, they have no intention to reverse it. These people are (mostly) here to stay and their families will follow them.

Third, within a very short time, they will be awarded citizenship and voting rights.

Fourth, they will almost certainly become democrats and vote that way.

Fifth, this whole affair represents another major accomplishment in the President's "fundamental transformation of America."

It's all part of the plan....

C-Mom -- Humor is an acceptable way of poking fun at the truth.

While I enjoy the humor in the skit.
I also see a lot of truth mixed in with the 2012 Chris Rock comedy skit.

President Obama really isn't a Black-American, he never lived the
Black-American culture. If anything he was elected by 1/2 of American based solely on his skin color which IS RACIST.

But it is NOT racist to call him out on being a Socialist, or a Ober Liberal even if he was a Black-American.

NOT SURPRISED by Mississippi Democrats

Google Blacks paid for votes in Mississippi
Here is 1 example:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2014/07/01/baptist-pastor-charges-...

If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison sentence of up to five years.

A Federal Judge rules against Arizona yesterday regarding issuing Driver Licenses to NON-Citizens.

Now those Illegals have a State issued ID and can Vote in the upcoming election.

sawgrass, the prisoners in a

sawgrass, the prisoners in a prison, most of whom are American, attended school just like all the rest of us, until at least age 16.

They have 11 years or more of public school education, just like all adult Americans, give or take.

And most of them read below a 3rd grade level- because it is now known that if a child is not reading at grade level at the end of 3rd grade, their chances of ever catching up are very low, to say the least, even as an adult- and so the idea that they could get a GED or high school diploma isn't feasible.

The prison GED classes are not designed to bring a functionally illiterate person up to a GED level, that would take years and years of specialized teaching.

So I don't know why you think that I'm not making sense.

A whole lot of people that aren't in prison try to take GED classes, and they just can't manage it. You have to read on at least an 8th grade level to pass the courses and the test, and 25% of the American population is functionally illiterate.

There is a myth out there that everybody can get a GED, everybody can get a high school diploma. That just is not true, and it was never designed that way or meant for that to happen.

noc noc, it doesn't apply to all illegals. Certain requirements have to be met.

They can't have a criminal record, for one thing.

And it's because the Arizona law conflicts with the Federal law, they just have to rewrite their law.

About global warming, NOAA

About global warming, NOAA just refigured temperatures and the hottest month in America was in July 1936 not July 2012 as previously reported. If you look at raw temperature data the US has been slowly cooling over the last 100 years. Record or near record levels of ice in the Antarctic. Now warming of earth over the last 16 years per satellite temperature measurements. So, yes I'm skeptical of global warming!

ranter #1: yawn. is this the

ranter #1: yawn. is this the best you can do? really? the racist card AGAIN? the 'you hate him cause he's black' routine is gettin' mighty old and holds absolutely no credibility anymore, since that's all you obummer lovers ever say whenever someone dares to criticize your god. besides, we are told, supposedly, that he has or had a white mother, so he isn't even entirely black, so just who is it we're 'racist' against: the white part or the black part? i don't like the guy cause he's a bonehead idiot, with bonehead idiot ideas and a bonehead idiot attitude, not because of whatever color he is supposed to be.
ranter #2: i get your point, but i'm more concerned about the monies the taxpayers are shelling out for deadbeats, moochers, and baby-breeders, not to mention all the illegals that bonehead idiot is allowing into our country that we are paying, paying, paying, paying for as well. at least the deathrow people are where they belong, behind bars.
ranter #3: what has to happen to the so-called 'deathtrap' of i-20: people need to slow down, simple as that. the speed limit is not 70-90 mph through there, i believe it is 55 but good luck finding anyone who drives the speed limit anymore. people are at fault in vehicle wrecks, it's not the road, darlin'.

That's what I like about Chris Rock. He can laugh at himself. His video on how not to get your butt beat by the Cops is classic. Because he is black, he can get away with it. While some Blacks take offense ( he was booed at a Black award show one year), most appreciate his view.
