If Putin thinks he's bitch slapping O'Bama he damned well better understand he is doing that to all the American people. We will be here long after the current Potus' is put out to pasture.
The Republican Party once championed preserving the Union and the Civil War solidified that effort. Since Lincolns death some of the most evil people have arisen that worked to destroy good American values. Trump is demonstrating almost identical tactics and strategies the Nazis Party in Germany instituted in the Twentieth Century. Hitler used a democracy to gain power and once he did the world turned upside down. Take a look at the quality of candidates the GOP has running for POTUS. One of them might make a decent POTUS. The others don't come close.
Carson is an idiot and Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Bush are mad men. Kasich was the only candidate who appeared to be sane or knowledgeable. The rest of them are an embarrassment to the country, especially Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Rubio needs Batman to team up with so he can play his role as the Boy Wonder. Carson should consider auditioning for a remake of the movie Lost in Space. The Republican debates are a joke, except it shows us that Kasich is the only candidate qualified to be the Republican nominee.
It's interesting that Trump has decided to broadcast his own venue instead of participating in the next debate. In my opinion, this move will doom his campaign because this clearly shows what type of incompetent POTUS he would be. So I say, Mr. Trump, take your ball and go home. He must have heard me because that is exactly what he is doing.
An election in which Donald ran against Bernie would be fascinating! Just think. On this Forum we would read one post after another, about why my old White man should be elected, instead of your old White man! Ha-Ha-Ha!
It appears that Sarah Palin has endorsed Donald Trump. I am so pleased that she did. She helped destroy one Presidential Campaign, now she gets a chance to do it again. Could you imagine Sarah Palin in Donald Trump's Cabinet?

This should open some eyes! Since I'm middle age, this applies to me as well.
I have a reparation question(s). Would a million dollar check be subject to Taxes-federal, state, local? And also with regards to unpaid civil judgements, unpaid criminal fines, rent for people currently in custody, and so on? At least, since the bill for slavery would then be paid in full, one would be well advised not to automatically vote no on this issue w/o ALL these questions being answered beforehand. It might well be the best money the Country ever spent on anything.
In 1887, ex-slaves began petitioning the federal government for pensions and compensation for the years they had labored without wages before abolition. When Congress ignored their thousands of petitions, they tried to sue for wage theft but were told they could not. At the very least, all African Americans should be eligible for reparations. Monies could come from corporations, from banks and insurance companies.
The more I here Republicans speak the more it sounds like they are reading the Nazi Playbook. Is this my imagination?
Yesterday a Black teenage girl was attacked by a policeman while sitting at her desk in school. The video clearly shows that the girl did not try to physically attack the policeman .For MikeyA, and GZ, your arguments that Blacks are the problem is getting weaker and weaker. The use of video cameras is bringing out the truth.
If you are in a wheel chair and follow police instructions, don't self inflict a wound with a gun. The police will come, order you to put the gun down and shoot you for trying to put the gun down. This certainly puts a new spin on driving while Black. If you run from the police, they will shoot you. If you stay in your car and follow police instructions the police will shoot you. If you are trying to kill yourself while confined to a whee chair the police will shoot you. I wonder what the police will do if someone is mowing the grass.
I was pretty impressed with Cary Fiorina. Who did you think won the CNN debate last night?
With the events this last week, Obama has served up dinner for the conservatives. The conservatives are eating Jim Crow. I predict when Obama leaves office the facts will show he was the the greatest POTUS this country ever had. Millions of hard working Americans benefited by the Supreme Court decisions. When are the conservatives, specifically the Republicans, going to understand that the United States is a a nation of people, not about destroying the middle class and creating a feudal system.
Finally, the truth is being revealed that the United States has more homegrown terrorists than imported from overseas.
Who do we need to be afraid of? Black or White Americans?
Hate crime against a child
Kirstin Roberts looks at what a recent hate crime against an African American child says about our image of who is racist in our society.
In the 1950's a fourteen year old teenager (Emmett Till) was viciously murdered.in Mississippi. That event, more than any other atrocity, sparked the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Here we are again on the verge of the social unrest that defined that era. In many ways America has changed for the better. Millions of Americans who couldn't vote can now vote and discrimination in public places and the workplace is against the law. Slowly the rights of these Americans have eroded, highlighted by the Gestapo attitude and tactics against people of color that has resurfaced.
Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours. The report notes that it's possible that the real number could be much higher.
A black man had dinner at a strip mall and stood outside the restaurant waiting for his ride home when a White security guard attached him causing injury. The Black Man had baggy clothes, a hoodie , a cell phone and a blind man's cane. The police ruled that the assault by the security guard was justified.
