God forbid anyone speak out, saying what they think or feel. You are labled as an "angry white man"

I believe in freedom. Freedom of thought, freedom of choice. I suggest you read books on the founding fathers. You may find how they really thought. Our "founding fathers" had a dream. This is not it!
Are you referring to that part where only wealthy white male landowners could vote? Actually where only white males could actually own.. anything? That freedom? I mean that is how they really thought...

Threerun,

I think you might want me to pay reparations for something I had nothing to do with. I feel no Guilt or Shame. I have oppressed no one. Affirmative action is reverse discrimination.


Onward and upward in this the Greatest nation on God's green earth!

Nothing of the sort.

You said- "I believe in freedom. Freedom of thought, freedom of choice. I suggest you read books on the founding fathers. You may find how they really thought. Our "founding fathers" had a dream. "

That freedom was, for all intents and purposes, exclusive of 'everyone' else.

I to believe in moving forward. And thank goodness that amendments to the original framework moved our constitutionally granted freedoms beyond what our founding fathers intended.

Believing or referring to what it is that the founding fathers actually meant, especially within the context of the 'freedoms' they intended is actually backwards thinking.

Well my friend we must agree to disagree. Is freedom not fantastic!!

We all are slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of our own slavery, we allow the bankers continue to create “money out of nothing” and control credit .

Threerun,

We're in luck. I was listening to Glenn Beck at lunch. He said at 5 O'clock today, he will ex plane the "madness" away. I guess we should watch his show at 5. He will enlighten us.

That's actually a change from the people who come in here believing everything they hear and spouting an abundance of ignorant, idiotic and lewd comments about not only us as a people, but the state as a whole.
Exactly right.

Our founding fathers had great intellect and the hope of inspiration from a divine providence...they also had tyranny personified in the form of King George lll, who's mind was warped by the final stages of syphilis.

Our tyranny is personified with the likes of Pelosi, Reid and the Obama cadre...not so much removed in actuality from the problem King George faced. Out of touch and certainly out of their minds...

Wonder how Ted Kennedy's interview went? Does Double-Talk work at the Great Judgement Bar?

The Pope's silence has been deafening....did he send anybody to sit in the front row?
