Reasons to be more than skeptical

October 8, 2013

I’m a little surprised at some of the remarks from supposedly educated people about how the African-American community perceives things compared to other members of society....

marcia, even paul christopher wrote an article saying that the bus he traveled in had chicken wire in the windows driving from the airport during the nam era. . He asked if there was going to be a mortar attack by those tolerant libs as they hated the war. Marcia, find an act of violence and a left wing is behin d it. even obamas friends bombed stuff in the 60's and 70's. fact m arcia, the weathermen. Even jefferson attacked the barbary pirates in the early 1800s. he was sick of paying tribute to the arab pirates. retreat marcia and we wil be attacked or pay tribute. please, marcia, read some history other than the MSM. You are greatly confused.

All you unlearned libs, the slavs were slaves, just like the africans. Slav and slave are synonymous.at least 1000 years of slavery. It culminated in the holocaust, a legal thing judeye.the germans were great enslavers of the slavs. judeye would have said to the camp you go its legal. progressives you know. there are plenty of poor people in america,appalachia. Do you see crime in epic proportions from them ? No. Are the slavs, eastern europeanss rioting, committing crime, destroying their families like the blacks ? No, .its time to stop apologizing for what the democrats did in the past, slavery as an institution was defended to the point of war, legal as states rights. Jim crow, segregation , all democratic. judeye and marcia , how did you forget that ? cherry picking again ? is this right wing idiot stuff ?

hey marcia, you forget the rioters in detroit in the 60's and 70's. All left wing. Hundreds dead, chunks of the city in ruins. But the libs did it. It was the signature end of detroit. that was NOT a right wing thing , but a left wing accomplishmnet. The left wing is always, but always rioting and you mock the right. Golly you are learning challenged.marcia, try and read history, you and judeye lack knowledge of it hugely. Marcia, who demonstrated against George Zimmerman the left. get a clue marcia.

"There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.... After all we have been through. Just to think we can't walk down our own streets, how humiliating" Guess who made this very racist quote Marcia and robot? Aw I'm going to tell you anyway. Jesse Jackson

So many assumptions by you people. Just because I question whether that really happened. Google it and it calls that an urban legend. I was against the Vietnam war, but I think that behavior is reprehensible. My father is a WW II vet with many medals, including the Purple Heart, which I proudly display on my living room wall. My only brother was a Vitenam-era vet. Yes, I think we waste way too much money on the military, but that doesn't make me anti-military or anti-American. Congressmen give the Pentagon weapons they don't want or need. Yes I think we need to close bases all over the world because it costs our taxpayers way too much to defend other countries. Most of Europe and Asia have good economies and should be defending themselves. These views are held because my prime interest is in my country. So American, and others, who like to pile up on me, you don't know me so don't pretend you know my opinion on everything.

No Marcia I was not one that was but I do know many Vietnam vets that were. Trying talking to vets instead of hating them for protecting your way of life. I have no use for your kind of person or anyone who seems to dislike active military and veterans as you have shown you do. Sleep in comfort knowing it was one of those who enabled you to do so.

Marcia,

No, But I know people who were, in fact one has an arrest record for belting the leftist hippie that spit on him but you go ahead and deny anything that makes those causes you support look bad, or find a way to blame it on Bush if that's what you have to do to sleep at night.

You truly believe that it is an "urban legend" that returning American warriors (men and women) were spit on? You have lived in the dark I guess. Or are you one of those hateful people that think our military should be done away with. You are really unbelievable.

I would point them out to you but you being you would just deny them or blame them on Bush. Telling you to pull your head out of your ___ wasn't a real personal attack on you Marcia but I can start in with the types of things you on the left use if you like. Basically what I was saying was quit being led into the dark by your left wing terrorist party.

Interesting, American how you always have to make personal attacks. That's what uninformed people do when they have nothing to say. I did google damage done by OWS and couldn't find much of anything. They were overtime expenses, not the same as damages. Nice that you guys feel you have to make up news. And it is wrong to spit on A Congressman. And are you a veteran who was personally spit upon by anti-war protesters or are you just repeating the urban legends?

Marcia would you please do yourself a favor (and all of us), pull your head out of that dark lower cavity you have it stuck in, come up for air and see the light along with some truth about your pet agendas. What the he77 do you mean no damage done during OWS. Try using google and get an honest anwser. MSNBC and Obama,c om will not do that for you.

And as far as damages the OWS people did, it may not have been just physical, it was also budgetary. To the tune of Millions.

"It's all in your mind."

Huh. I guess those people that were beat/shot/killed with "That's for Trayvon!" yelled at them was just my imagination then.

American, what damage did OWS do? The same damage done by all the rioters after the Zimmerman trial? It's all in your mind. If you want to talk about damage done to our country let's talk about the damage done to it by Wall Street, now that is damage.

American..."Judeye, were you "proud" of all of those that went to Albany to protest the unsafe ACT? Were you "proud" of those who stood their ground against new gun control laws? Are you "proud" of all those who are protesting the ACA? "

Yes I am. I think it is up to each of us as citizens to be involved in our government. When people protest laws they do not like..it is called democracy. When they do illegal actions, they may be arrested. However, when they enter into our system of government,they pledge to uphold the laws of our Country. all of them..not just the ones that they like or agree with....

HUGE difference

joew..HUGE difference between the two groups. One made an issue of being arrested..they wanted to be arrested..it is called Civil Disobedience.

Now if you can get the TEA to admit what they are doing is plain WRONG and in some people's mind illegal, then maybe I would have more respect. Rather they are saying it is their right to hold our entire country hostage..not over the budget...but over a LAW that they disagree with. Now they are threatening to bring our entire economy down with refusal to raise the debt ceiling. These are folks who have little to no respect for the laws of our Country. I have NO idea why they wanted to be part of the government if they dislike it so much.

Judeye, were you "proud" of all of those that went to Albany to protest the unsafe ACT? Were you "proud" of those who stood their ground against new gun control laws? Are you "proud" of all those who are protesting the ACA? All of these people are standing up for their beliefs. Are you proud of those that spit on veterans and returning military members at any time in our history? Are you "proud" of the Muslims that have terrorized our nation? They also stood up for their beliefs. Doesn't take much to make you proud does it?

I bet she was proud of all those OWS people that did all that damage, hurt people as long as they did it because of their (and hers) beliefs in what OWS was (not) all about. And hates those now in the house for standing up for their (and mine) beliefs about ACA.

Judeye-"merican...and I am PROUD of every one of them that was arrested. They stood up for their beliefs. The belief that we must pass an immigration bill". So I guess this does not hold true for those that were elected to uphold what their constituents told them to do?

Judeye, your quotation of Pelsi is not one bit different than mine. Why wouldn't she say " please read the contents of the bill so you can see what's in it enforce it is voted on"? Because she knew it is chock full of holes, that's why.

Yes judeye Oct-09-13 7:40 AM, I think we all understand it is about controlling every aspect of our lives. About preventing people from eating what they want (ie:diet). Yes you would be proud of them but if it had been people doing that to stand up for their beliefs and trying to force it to be left as is and wanting the rules we have now enforced then you would be singing a different tune. Deport the illegals and make them follow the same path as is required by the law NOW. For the democrats it is all about getting a bigger voting base.
