Re: “At last, madam, have you no shame?

the outlier
If what you are upset about is the economic and social injustice, how do you determine what an injustice is? What criteria do you use for your analysis? It seems to me that you want me to accept your "fly by the seat of your pants" analogy of what is right and what is wrong. Creating wealth is a fundamental need in a capitalistic society. If you think you need to limit one's desire to acquire wealth, you do not have a capitalistic system-it is socialism. I think you are confused about wealth. Wealth can be any amount of money that satisfies a persons desires. Wealth to a bum can be a pint of Four Roses. Wealth to an entrepreneur can be unlimited. I understand your wanting to "change" any social or economic injustice, but who the hell do you think you are to determine what that is in America.

Your comment about the pointed white hats is uncalled for and may I
suggest if you want to be taken seriously, knock of the racist crap!!!

Re: “UALR names head of racial institute

I understand what you are saying and I agree that the face of the jobs you are citing are populated by black Americans. But i want to take the next step and try to understand why that is? Is it strictly social-economic reasons? Is it circumstance? Is it discrimination? A combination of all of these OR is it the lack of drive and initiative on behalf of the black population to take advantage of the American dream. Heaven help us that the black has been offered many advantages to become successful. Affirmative Action has been around for decades. I would like to surmise that due to the Democratic coddling of the black American through the last 40 years, that they have not taken advantage of opportunities that are before them. If that is true....WHY?
Could it be that the Democratic programs have only been successful to lift blacks only to a level where they have become dependent on government to survive. Can we explain why a black woman would want to have more children even though she knows the father will not be in the home to provide for them. Is it the guarantee of more money if they have more children. Are those children taught the "work ethic" without a father in the house to show them? Is it the fact that they are guaranteed free health care no matter how many children they have without paying a dime??? Is the trip to a grocery store for free food an incentive to have more kids and NOT be working????
This goes across racial lines. I am not saying that blacks are the only victims.
Who would not vote for a Democrat knowing that they are the ones providing the free ride. I am all for taking care of our needy. But it seems to me that the real needy are still in Africa and underdeveloped countries of the world. Our "poor' are not poor. In fact with all the govt. programs to take care of the lazy, they do quite well.

What is wrong with a people that cannot embrace the Republican theme of "government get out of my way and let me be the best I can be. Seems to me they do not want to be free to pursue the American dream. They already have been convinced by the Democrats that they are living the liberals dream of i will take care of you---just vote for me!!!!!!

Re: “Gloomy forecast for the economy

Why is it so hard to see what is going on?
People on both sides of issues are so busy defending their own parties that they all lose focus on what the problems are.
If i hear the term " nobel prize winning laureate in economics" one more time i think i will barf.
We cannot continue to "spend" more money than we get from "revenue".
How did we get to a point where this is happening? Could it be that "borrowing" money was easy to do and would cover the fact we were "spending" too much.
Is taxing people more a solution? Sure it is. Is this the time to do it in a recession? Hell No.
If we can start to cut spending and get our house in order ie" a balanced budget.
Then after economy gets up a better head of steam ( and it will), come to the American people and tax people accordingly. I will guarantee you if the American people knew that the politicians were not going to spend all the new revenue and would apply it to getting our debt down, people would be more for it.
Why not cut government across the board by 25%. Over the next 10 years we will not hire anyone to take the place of any govt. employee that retires. This will mean that each and every agency will have to trim down (get rid of needless spending on programs that they deem unnecessary because we have no money to finance them.)

I doubt that this will ever happen as you can see by just this blog that people are ignorant to the fact that we are in serious trouble. We need for all of us to "go over the cliff" first. Does the fall of the Roman Empire ring a bell?

Well put, Steven....except it will go on deaf ears in this site. They are too busy blaming Bush.

Re: “UALR names head of racial institute

Ok Tap
You have reduced me to a bigoted racist.
However, your arguments are worn and do not have the same effect on people.
I do not "feel sorry" for you and your plight in life.
I do feel sorry for the anger that you harbor in your heart and reflect in your writings.
All your examples of hatred toward blacks are used by you to prey on people's sympathies. It's done TAP. We don't care about the past. Try growing up and put it behind you. You are doing exactly what the liberal politicians do to the black community to "get their votes".

Your attempt at humor is sad. No way a majority of Americans (including black America) compares platforms and promises of the two parties. 95% of the black community votes for Democrat liberal policies. Come on, Tap. Get your comments out of the fiction category and start seeing what the liberals have done to your community. Promises for over 40 years and where is the black community?????? Fatherless families, high crime rate, school drop outs, high incidence of drug usage and 25% unemployment. I realize all of these go across all Americans, but the targeting of Democrat "reparations?" have hurt your community disproportionately.
