Obama describes "plantation politics"
Posted by CptBengal on 6/19 at 8:46 am
From "Dreams From My Father", page #147:

"A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our soul for a Christmas turkey.”

Hope'n'Change

And democrats have blacks on a welfare plantation to this day. Sadly that is where they will remain until the end of time.

Given the choice of selling their inefficient and unproductive labor on a free market and living better than the lower middle class on a welfare plantation which would you choose?

Interesting when you consider the first half-black president is overseeing one of the worst black unemployment rates in history.

And now he's the one selling the turkey.
Hope & Change(tm) worked for him, apparently.

Legalize drugs? Exclude youths from minimum wage?

You can thank Mitch McConnell. His focus is not to serve the people. He only thinks of politics.

LOLZ.

We have now shifted from blaming a Republican House for all our troubles to the Minority Leader in the Senate. Because the Minority Leader really drives the agenda in the Senate.

Man, imagine what Obama could've done if he majorities in both Houses, including a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. We'd be well on our way to 6% unemployment.

Otto, a simple question: are you familiar with the budgetary process called "Reconciliation"?
