Oh, wow, and he looks like he would have had to "go elsewhere" for his degree in medicine, fair education, and even the ability to open and operate a business- dr.'s office, etc., so far down in the deep south had it not been for the civil rights Americans now enjoy that Liberals , and African Americans fought and died for making his success even possible in America.

News Interview with Dr. Cassell & Mrs Estella Chapman, who photographed the sign and made it nationwide. Dr. Cassel was interviewed by CNN's Anderson Cooper and it was revealed that Dr. Cassell's office is located in a community consisting of majority African Americans. Two separate videos: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21...vp/36155021#36155021 http://www.cnn.com/video/?/vid...hates.obamacare.wftv (video that follows is Anderson Cooper's 5 minute interview with Dr. Cassell)

Indeed, and Prez Obama caved to the nonsense with this so-called "freeze" which doesn't help the little man. There should have been a freeze before sending billions of dollars to the banks while the citizens are left holding the bag.

I have to admit that I do not understand. The 800 lb gorilla in the room is the National Debt, which is already at around 12 trillion dollars. Revenues must exceed spending to pay down this debt, but unfunded liabilities, including Medicare, are ballooning due to baby boomer retirement coming of age. Thus, entitlement spending will grow significantly over the next decade. Here is my conundrum. Every dollar spent is a dollar earned, whether it is in the private or public sector. In light of...

I just had a pecuiar thought. If both Bush elections were stolen then why wasn't Obama's election stolen? With the economy destined to go into the toilet after Bush was it good for Obama to get the blame. That is why I wanted the White broad to get the nomination. Xum

Far too many people voted for President Obama for it to not be obvious if they had tried the same thing in that election. Hence, I find all these "polls" putting President Obama and Mitt Romney neck-n-neck suspect as hell. What gives it away is "polls" are said to be actually showing that Romney is leading President Obama in women voters, which I know is a lie.

This is what I've been saying all along, that republicans' loyalty is to their corporate bosses, not to the United States of America, and certainly not to American citizens.
