Did you see Hannity and Colmes where that punk ass Sean Hannity started complaining about Rev. Lowery and President Carter clowning the Shrub? That Hannity is punk ass snitchin' Rush Limbaugh wannabe. Dancing around the race factor, completely in denial that racism still exists. He and Larry Elder should be dancing partners on the next season of "Dancing With The Stars." Deejay: Free chicken and watermelon for qualifying for the semifinals. Elder: Did he say FREE???

you dont understand what Miseducation is? what? but you come up with all this elaborate scheme of what you think education is.Finally, let's turn to Dr. Carter G. Woodson's great book, "The Miseducation of the Negro," to get some further insights into this problem. Woodson observes, "the so-called modern education, with all its defects, however, does others so much more good than it does the Negro, because it has been worked out in conformity to the needs of those who have enslaved and...

Well, that's fair to say. My complaint with Dems is that they aren't the same party today as they were during the days of FDR and Carter. Most of their policies today are like a cross between Clinton's globalism and Eisenhower's economic philosophies. They aren't Social Democrats and Keynesians any more. They're a cross of Neoliberals and Paleoconservatives.

I think, for the most part [and maybe I'm romanticizing here], the big difference in the democratic party is, back in the days of FDR and Carter, the democrats actually stood on social and economic issues. Today, democrats are merely about getting re-elected.

He is certainly not the brightest cat. At least Clinton, Bush 41, Nixon (forget Watergate... the dude normalized relations with China during his presidency and he did it without the help of Congress... and politically speaking, that was no easy task), and Carter had the intellectual and MENTAL capacity to do the job. Bush 43 is not only lacking ability, he is probably still suffering from dyslexia.
