Some Questions About Slavery/Racism:

Based on some recent posts, racism and the battle against same, is the central thesis for many of the progressive bloggers. Some, it seems, found the actions of that that rocket scientist Chris Rock theory based on his race....and some imagined racism, and/or legacy of slavery....

1. Liberals love the idea of the “apology,” that the government should apologize for slavery, Japanese internment, you name it.

2. The Rabbis teach that no apology is legitimate unless the offender:

a. Expresses remorse stating specifically what he has done
b. Makes restitution
c. Refrains, in similar circumstances, from committing the offense again.

3. Based on the first of these, a governmental apology founders, without specifics as to who the “we” is, and who the “they” of the apology are.

4. Take the question of slavery vis-à-vis the American Government of today. Is it guilty of slavery?

a. If so, are those African American members of government equally guilty?

b. Are the American people alive today guilty?

c. If so, which ones? The black as well as the white?

d. Is the guilt heritable…for if it is, then would not those (the great majority of) Americans whose ancestors did not arrive until after slavery be exempt from apology?

e. How about the ancestors of the 300,000 white males who died to defeat slavery? Exempt as well? And the whites who voted for the 14th amendment and the Civil Rights Act?

f. And if not, on what basis are the descendants of slaves entitled to it?

5. Is it not absurd that six or seven decades after the West defeated Nazi Racism we are still considering making government decisions based on genetics?

6. To indulge in any racial preferences is not to award to a race, but, rather, to the state, the power to created different classes of citizens, and to rule on who shall belong to each class. This does not serve any desire for justice.
Why should any of us apologize for something that NONE of us, or anyone that is even alive today took part in?
Liberals should apologize for being air heads. Several times a day

Why Obama will NOT be re-elected.

  1. Unemployment after 4 years of Keynesian economics is still over 7%. If Americans are out of work so will be the President.
  2. US debt is over 14 trillion dollars and counting. He tripled the debt. We had a party and our children will have to pay.
  3. We are still fighting an undeclared war in the Middle East with American men and women on the ground taking casualties with no end in sight. This really upsets me. It is not Obama’s fault but America should only fight declared wars, because undeclared wars are a never ending battle.
  4. The budget is not yet balanced and 60 percent of the money goes to entitlements.
  5. Change did not come.
  6. The housing market is far from recovered.
  7. China is rising faster than the USA.
  8. US jobs are going overseas.
  9. He accepted the Nobel peace prize for nothing.
  10. Still no real business experience, only an academic.
  11. Liberals feel betrayed as he did not follow through with transforming America with a liberal vision. Too much compromise.
  12. Increased taxes.
  13. Half the country is conservative.
  14. After the initial honeymoon with international leaders, the global community respects him only for his title rather than his ability to lead.
  15. Tea party.
  16. Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Alex Jones, Drudge Report,

Hey, Obama -. It's the economy Stupid!

If Obama win re-election, and I hope to God that he doesn't, he would be the first president in over 75 years to win with an economy as horrid as the one we have today.
And with Obama’s poor handling of the economy and jobs in America, I can't see him being re-elected at all..
