re: For those who are tired of hearing about race - Doc Fenton
Probably the best thing that has been done for black Americans since Eisenhower was the GOP's 1994 "Contract with America" push for welfare reform signed into law by President Clinton in 1996. Here is what [i]Nation[/i] magazine predicted would happen ([link=(https://www.thenation.com/article/august...

re: For those who are tired of hearing about race - Doc Fenton
[quote]Is there any way to bring it back to equilibrium?[/quote] There was never an equilibrium. There were only times when racial convergence was proceeding smoothly, and retrogressions like we've been having lately, when racial disparities seem to diverge. One of the best periods for black-w...

re: Do the people in Iran miss the Shah? - Doc Fenton
[quote]Do the people in Iran miss the Shah?[/quote] I doubt it. Iran in the 1970s was experiencing rapid economic growth, but it was ruled in a heavy-handed and authoritarian manner, with a rich Western elite favored over the masses, to where I doubt any notion of restoration is looked kindly upo...

re: Did Obama lie? He used a pseudonym in emails with Clinton, FBI documents reveal - Doc Fenton
[quote]Obama is truly untouchable[/quote] Perhaps, based on the notion of political popularity, but if Nixon needed a pardon from Ford, then Obama is definitely still technically indictable. Given practical realities, I don't think a criminal prosecution of Obama would work (although it [i]wou...

re: Erick Erickson is completely insane. GOP needs to ditch the religious nuts - Doc Fenton
I don't understand how anyone can possibly think Bush-Clinton represents the same things as Obama. Trump is a continuation of Obama. Pretty much every single crazy leftist issue that the Left has won the culture war on lately, the Trump campaign has adopted. How can you people be so blind to the ...

re: Did Obama lie? He used a pseudonym in emails with Clinton, FBI documents reveal - Doc Fenton
My voting preferences are still in flux. I think I've reached the point where I can no longer handle Gary Johnson's shitbag statements on working with Russia, being pro-Planned Parenthood, and being so anti-religious-freedom / pro-anti-discrimination-laws. I've voted the Libertarian Party tick...

Hmmm, where have we heard this line before? [quote]CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama. "The same time everybody else learned it through news reports," the president...

re: Russian Ambassador triggered...P-O'd we bombed Syria and supported ISIS - Doc Fenton
It depends on the day. :lol: P.S. -- I think I may have misconstrued that statement about Morrell, to where I was thinking he was arguing for high-level assassinations. I just looked and I think he was only arguing for killing Iranian and Russian troops on the ground in Syria, which makes perfect...

[quote]I have no sympathy for dead Syrian soldiers.[/quote] Exactly. It's a weird situation for sure, since we were in a cease fire that we probably should have never agreed to be in, and we were giving Russians lots of intel on the locations of our allies and where we were planning to bomb. ...

re: How evil does the board really think Russia is? - Doc Fenton
I do think Russian leadership (and Russian culture too, for that matter) is evil, but in the political realm, my primary concern is how immoral and virulently anti-American Putin's foreign policy is. So I have no doubt that there are pockets in the world where the local tyranny is worse and more ...

re: Thoughts on Teddy Roosevelt from 1904 that could be written today about Trump - Doc Fenton
I am certainly no fan of Teddy Roosevelt. He was the original urban Progressive politician, and probably the 2nd worst Republican president of all time after Hoover. That being said, Teddy had an absurd bravado based on a ridiculous notion of Christian honor, whereas Trump has an absurd bravado base...
