whatdayou think?

see over half the American's do not understand what is going on...this is one example....

You think we're global now, just wait, and see what happens if Hillary gets in...they want a one world organization....that is why they're allowing all these illegals in...plus they passed the bill that allows people from other countries here to work legally....so the corporations lay us Americans off, and hire them...it's a win win deal for them...and this is just one example of many reasons why they Want Hillary in. She is bought and paid for by the corporations of the WORLD, all the rich....including Arabs, Muslims, etc....that is why Bush did NOTHING after 911 to close off the borders.

you would think after an attack like that, they would have immediately closed off the borders right? Well, no, not when most foreign nations own our real estate, like banks, our ports, etc....

american's are so uneducated on this...they vote to vote, and haven't got a reason why, except that Hillary is a woman...OH YEAH

As well as the US. We need to educate ourselves.

What in the world could this passage mean? Could O'Reilly really thing that how well a slave is fed is a cogent argument - that "cuisine" offered makes slave-holding less of an abomination?

Do some people really think slavery was some kind of entry level job with just a few "perks?"
"What in the world could this passage mean?"

if you have to ask, you probably DON'T understand the issue.

MANY people CONSTANTLY go on and on on hard BAD the slaves had it.

No ONE is denying many slaves had it bad.

MANY slaves did NOT have it so bad.

All he is doing is pointing out that not ALL slaves had it as bad as some keep saying.

Are Civil Wars always irrelevant? Or is it just here in the precariously United States of America?

One of the Obama's legacies will be the promotion of racism.

Good point. The freed slaves only had to wait another 100 years to vote.

They still do. It's called dependence on the government for one's subsistence via welfare programs. How Blacks fail to understand that puzzles me.

It's over, get over it. No reason to bring it up other to pander for votes. Pathetic.

And I though Blacks in Africa started capturing their fellow Blacks and sold into Slavery.

Slavery was propagated by Democrats. It was Republicans who lead the fight to free them.
