That particular statement regarding charity and control has been making the rounds ever since Republicans discovered that they could get a little mileage out of it years ago. It's nothing new that you have stumbled upon Tot. It's old hat.
It's fodder for Aryans, such as yourself Tot, who continue trying to use it. Aryans use it to formulate anger, and resentment towards minorities that meet hunger eligibility requirements in order to get foodstamps and medical aid. Aryan extremists, such as yourself, use it as a tool to also bash Liberals.
It's hate talk primarily used by fellow Aryan extremists who feel marginalized by societal and cultural changes made available to minorities.
I keep on tryin and tryin to tell ya tot" It's a New World Charlie Brown but the bus is about to stop and let out all the old aging and balding white men who want to ride on the old bus that brung 'em to the dance a while back.
Soooo What is the intent of entitlment programs for ethnicities other than black? One of the weaker party lines I have heard in a while. Poverty and hunger does not discriminate; the effects are the same regardless of ethnicity.
HMJC: Yes hunger, poverty, and lack of medical aid crosses ALL ethnicities including impoverished white folks. I know that. The fact that the right props these programs up as Government gone wrong is inherently inaccurate. It is used as a wedge issue by conservatives who for the most part believe that EVERYBODY needs to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, even if they don't have any boots or money to buy any.
Hi Sebe: yes I know the South lost the war and slavery was brought to its rightful demise. Fine. But right now we have a Black Democratic President whom country club conservative Republicans wish to tar and feather. Not to mention putting up a wall to hinder passage of any legislation he puts forward in Congress.
So, in summation fellas, yes the Republicans freed the black slaves. But the Democrats made a Black man the leader of the free world.
MLK would be proud.
As for you fellas present Conservative hero Guillory, he is nothing more than a political opportunist cut from the same which ever the wind is blowing politically, as Zell Miller.
Guillory IS the new Zig-Zag.
JimmyMack, HMJC and sebekm thank you each for your comments.
I just watched the video again and must say it is a very good speech.
As far as Guillory being simply a zig zaging opportunist that may be but I don't think so.
Someone once said a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of a small mind.
A wise man will change his mind when he gets the whole picture.
Will someone please make this a learning opportunity for me and afford me the precise percentage of Blacks (a whole lot of them black who have become freeloaders)...and the length of time those disadvataged humans can remain eligible for "free stuff?" And while your at it how many of them "freeloaders'(not my word) actually vote? A ballpark percentage will do for now.
And if one is so inclined, might I be enlightened regarding the NAACP stance toward our Democrat President?
Personally, I believe that making the claim that Blacks can be bought with "free stuff" handed out by Democrats is a racist and is an insult to the Black culture as a whole. That sort of "New World" speak harkens back to the openly racist days when impoverished Black folks would feel compelled to intone:..."yasah, boss, you knows we be happy don't ya know" while being forced to live in squalor.
If I was a person of color I would take the "free stuff" "new World" mantra as yet another incredible insult thrust upon them by the Man.
And just how much deeze welfare cheks and foodstamps amount to cuz I wants me some of all dat money.
To answer your question regarding the racial makeup of welfare recipients, it is as follows: blacks 33.3 percent, whites 31.2 percent, Hispanics 28.8 percent, Asians 2.1 percent and American Indians 1.3 percent.
Thank you Up2. I guess dem numbahs posted reflect the profound impact inflicted upon the Electoral College.
But just As long as its bein' down da rabbit hole, dat is.
Republicans are a dying buffoonery of out of touch white bubbas and bubbetts.
It is becoming a Yankee take on Southern racial intercourse.
The Snow birds just don't get it.
My, my, my, I had no idea the magnitude of electoral influence all these "free loaders" had. Dis must be Obama's and da Dems "silent minority" as opposed to Nixon's "silent majority."
Shame Seb. Nixon wasn't impeached. He was going to be and so he resigned and Ford pardoned him, which cause a lot of backlash for Ford. Only two presidents have been impeached, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.
Sebe, Sebe, Sebe...I don't know what's got stuck in your craw but I hope it ain't permenant. This 'argument' that the Welfare massess are a vital and important voting bloc...well it's just starting to get a little sad, if you really believe it to be so. The argument debases the integrity of the individuals within this minority voting bloc, if in fact one can say that they are a for real voting bloc. They are being made to sound like they are zombies controlled by free tweenkies and inoperable cell phones.
Sebe: I desire not to seek out the "Obama Phone Lady" to help clarify this issue for me.
So nada on this one Sebe. I made my beliefs known for all to see above and see no need to keep repeating myself.
I guess we should just let Allah sort it all out.
I am just old enough to remember when welfare was still something new and people who were in need were embarrassed by the fact.
There was a degree of shame because of pride.
Now we've got young adults who were born into "the projects" and have grown up there. Many of them remain there for their entire lives.
They become slaves to the plantation and are a drain on society.
We have simply got to return to some kind of program which offers a hand up instead of a handout.
