    Black pastors group launches anti-Obama campaign around gay marriage;

    Washington (CNN) – A group of conservative black pastors are responding to President Barack Obama’s support of same-sex marriage with what they say will be a national campaign aimed at rallying black Americans to rethink their overwhelming support of the President, though the group’s leader is offering few specifics about the effort.

    The Rev. Williams Owens, who is president and founder of the Coalition of African-Americans Pastors and the leader of the campaign, has highlighted opposition to same-sex marriage among African-Americans. He calls this campaign “an effort to save the family…”

    Hey kid, you know he’s eats puppies, right?

  9. Bob Roberts says:

    I still think this is a huge story: AP claims Obama has a link to the first slave in Virginia, if not North America, who was actually an indentured servant, not a slave. Further, the link involves a dubious connection between him, a guy named John Punch, who apparently lived and died an indentured servant, yet he allegedly had a son who suddenly became a wealthy landowner but who apparently did not share his last name – they’re saying due to a paperwork error, but I’m saying he wasn’t related to the guy who was allegedly traced to Obama’s mother, John Bunch.

    Now the twist here is this – the left is using this rather questionable link to this guy who wasn’t even a slave to give Obama slave roots through his white mother since they know they can’t do it through his black father.

    But in doing it they have to use a guy who owned a plantation… that makes him one of the original “1%” AND a likely SLAVE OWNER. Virginia plantation? 450 acres? What are the odds John Bunch was a slave OWNER?

    I would say probably very close to 100%.

    Why isn’t anyone running with this?

    Milton Freedman verbally destroys the moonbat Donohue.

    The “maldistribution of wealth” is based on some people being too busy fighting, for centuries, to actually get together, work together and build a society.

    Too busy just taking what they want when they want – we see it in the flash mobs often posted here who just raid someplace and either take, take, take or who become violent and sadistic.

    You can call it racist if you like, but there are two different ethical and moral paths being taken by members of different cultures here. The members of the culture that chooses violence and crime can choose to join the members of the other culture, but they choose not to do so.

  13. Bob Roberts says:

    Look, anthropologists have pretty much proven, and DNA has confirmed, that Africa is where humans first appeared and Asia is where they migrated to very early during their existence.

    So why are those places still largely backwards?

    Why is East Europe behind West Europe?

    Because, as Friedman says, the places that chose CAPITALISM have done well, the others have floundered.

    Friedman, again.

    In this episode, which is dated, but still timely, he points out that even though government played a big hand in hobbling the U.S. auto industry, it has no business bailing them out.

    Why soaking the rich won’t solve anything.

    Rich people make money because they work hard and invest wisely. Anyone can work their way up if they work hard, make wise decision and invest their money instead of wasting it.

    The people I know who are well off are well off because they tend to work hard and make good decisions.

    The people I know who are not doing well are not doing well because they are, frankly, lazy, shiftless, good for nothing and they repeatedly make foolish decisions.

  16. Bob Roberts says:

    The Great Depression Myth.

    It was not a failure of private business, of capitalism or due to over-concentration of wealth or speculative investments.

    It was produced by a failure of government, a failure of monetary policy, a failure of the Federal Reserve System to act wisely and properly.

    Kind of like we’re seeing now.

    There are a lot of other links to great Friedman videos in the right column at those links I gave.

    Phelps shakes off his early misses, becomes most decorated Olympian ever.

    Oddly enough, he is pretty candid about how “he didn’t do that”. That’s right, in this case, it was a team effort, but THEY DID DO THAT together!

    “I thanked those guys for helping me get to this moment,” Phelps said. “I told those guys I wanted a big lead. I was like, ‘You better give me a big lead going into the last lap,’ and they gave it to me. I just wanted to hold on. I thanked them for being able to allow me to have this moment.”

  23. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Friedman once remarked in an interview that there is no question people in the 1920’s were much poorer than they are today
    Yet then government only controlled 10 percent of the economy
    Today government controls over half and our standard of living has vastly improved. Yet it is this smaller share of the private economy where this improvement has derived
    Government, by contrast with it’s massive growth is ironically the source of today’s problems

  24. Spartan24 says:

    Restricting white students from leaving a failing minority dominant school is actually very common. In my hometown if you were white and unfortunate enough to be assigned to this type of school you were SOL as far as getting a transfer to a better school. Your best bet would be to try to go to a private school or use a friends address to get to a better school.

    Go for the Gold! (Pay the IRS.)

    Americans who win bronze will pay a $2 tax on the medal itself. But the bronze comes with a modest prize—$10,000 as an honorarium for devoting your entire life to being the third best athlete on the planet in your chosen discipline. And the IRS will take $3,500 of that, thank you very much.

    Silver medalists will owe $5,385. You win a gold? Timothy Geithner will be standing there with his hand out for $8,986.

    So as of this writing, swimmer Missy Franklin—who’s a high school student—is already on the hook for almost $14,000. By the time she’s done in the pool, her tab could be much higher. (That is, unless she has to decline the prize money to placate the NCAA—the only organization in America whose nuttiness rivals the IRS.)

    ATR notes that the real twist of the knife is that most other Olympians won’t pay any taxes on their medals because America is one of only a handful of countries which taxes “worldwide” prize income earned overseas.

    One less moonbat in the world tonight.

    He described himself as a conservative – go figure!

    And there is a lesson here:

    According to literary critic Harold Bloom, Vidal believed his homosexuality had denied him the full recognition of the literary community.

    Note how those who choose this lifestyle often go on to blame their choice for the results of their obvious shortcomings.

    Perhaps he just wasn’t as good as he imagined and that was why he didn’t get the recognition he felt he deserved.

    In any case, he dies a glaring example of the chronically dissatisfied, a trait that seems to go hand in hand with his choice of sexual relationships.

    London 2012 Olympics: China and South Korea under investigation after badminton match descends into farce

    In their defense – the moonbats were just hungry!

    In other countries, other swimmers have won multiple golds and nobody has said anything,” Ye Shiwen told a news conference following her victory in the 200m individual medley at the Aquatics Centre. “How come people criticise me just because I have won multiple golds?

    Maybe it’s just me (a case of “they all look alike to me”?) but does this “girl” look like a boy to you, too?

    I wonder if “she” is transgender? I gather they’re suggesting “she” is doping.

    The swimmer’s father, Ye Qingsong, stepped into the fray, telling the Chinese news portal Tencent that while it was “normal” for people to be suspicious, “the western media has always been arrogant and suspicious of Chinese people”.

    No, that’s not it. It’s just that, despite all those who can’t accept reality, men tend to outperform women and when a “woman” does this well, and it has NOTHING to do with her nationality, there’s something fishy going on.

    Anyone checked “her” DNA yet?

    Bad timing for Obama

    Democrats, always looking to slash vital defense, shoot selves in foot yet again.

    President Obama is trying to prevent thousands of layoff notices from going out a few days before the November election, Sen. Jame Inhofe (R-Okla.) said on Tuesday.

    Obama’s Labor Department on Monday issued “guidance” to the states, telling them that a federal law requiring advance notice of mass layoffs does not apply to the layoffs that may occur in January as a result of automatic budget cuts known as “sequestration.”

    Apparently, if doing so will hurt Obama and the Democrats, you don’t have to follow Federal Laws.

    Imagine that!

    The Real Crash – the results of four years of ruinous Democrat policies – is dead ahead as 2008 is forgotten

    2008 was the result of 2 years of Democrats running Congress. Add to that the 2 years they had both houses AND the White House and it’s a recipe for disaster!

    We have unlikely allies – Russia and China – in opposing a bad treaty

    Of course their reasons have nothing to do with the Second Amendment…

    Reports of the demise of the Tea Party have been greatly exaggerated!

  35. Bob Roberts says:

    Despite moonbat claims about “climate change” and “global warming”, this is normal: One region does well, the other suffers.

    This is NORMAL AND NATURAL. Drought, deluge, heat waves and cold snaps have been part of life since the Earth first developed a fluid envelope.

    This is satire……..right?
    Unfortunately I don’t think it is, at least not completely. In fact it looks like carefully crafted propaganda. Not the last bit about satanism, perhaps – though to weak moonbat minds that might not be evident so they might actually come away with a belief fracking causes satanism.

    The first bits are attempts to form, in weak minds, a connection between fracking and mass bird or fish deaths. From there they leap to it causing human illness, all things moonbats desperately want and need to believe anyway.

    Then it goes to the absurd – but remember, moonbats live on a steady diet of absurdity and willingly return for more on a regular basis.

    In truth the article states that they don’t know why the birds or fish died – they take a swipe at coal mining in the case of the fish, since coal mining is a legitimate target, in their eyes.

    As for the activist – what if the activist deliberately salted their own environment with things (poisons, radioactive things) in order to bring about this very sort of discussion?

  37. Bob Roberts says:

    Obama is only fooling himself and willingly duped moonbats

    “And you do not have to take my word for it,” said Obama. “Just today, an independent, non-partisan organization ran all the numbers on Governor Romney’s plan. This wasn’t my staff. This wasn’t something we did. Independent group, ran the numbers.”

    The president is right, up to a point: The study was not written by an Obama staffer, but by a former Obama staffer–and a close ally.

    Therefore when seeking a job and the potential employer wants to peruse your Facebook page in order to validate the investment in you, libs make it illegal (thus protecting the ability to brag about stupidity).
