Who is being oppressed in America in 2016?..be specific.
I just checked a website for a college in Fayetteville, NC, yesterday, FSU, Fayetteville State University. Their website indicated they are a “historically black college”. I will be calling their admissions office Monday 29AUG2016, to let them know they are missing out on thousands of Taxpayer dollars (GI Bill) because of that racist statement. I will let them know that I am the shepherd of tax payer dollars and will not reward any institution that is racist with funding of any type….I have to tell them this,otherwise they will never know how people like me feel.
I was talking to my Hispanic friend about this and he said I was being a racist for having this attitude. Only in America in 2016, can I be called a racist for pointing out racism.
I challenge anyone to show me a college that describes itself as “historically white”….crickets….
Blacks oppressed in 2016?…I don’t think so Mr. football guy….is that the sport with the stick and the puck or that oblong ball that bounces oddly on the ground…hint, I do not follow sports in any shape or form…..
How exactly is a “historically black college” racist? Historically black colleges were created so that blacks could have an opportunity for a college education when other colleges refused to admit them. Why wouldn’t a college be proud of that kind of legacy?
The vast majority of colleges in this country are “historically white.” No, they don’t advertise it, but why would they? They were historical white because often only white people were admitted. Blacks, Asians and Latinos were often actively discriminated against. It’s a fact in many colleges’ histories, but you would be hard-pressed to find a college that wants to brag about it.
PubliusPencilman, it's racist because ... BLACKS ARE NO LONGER OPPRESSED AND UNABLE TO ATTEND ANY COLLEGE THEY CHOOSE TO APPLY TO. Since having a white only college would be automatically racist, then having a continuing, "historic" black college in this day and age is ALSO racist.
It is implied and true that if a college is not an HBCU, they are historically white...that's a fact. But who cares. Even those colleges are starting to realize that in todays times, they might not be all that necessary...though some excellent products come out of these institutions.
The college is HISTORICALLY black! You know when the white colleges wouldn't admit blacks?! Don't be so silly!
"Since having a white only college would be automatically racist, then having a continuing, “historic” black college in this day and age is ALSO racist."
Yes, having a college that is "whites-only" would be racist, but a historically black college is not "blacks only." In fact, the undergraduate population of FSU, the school that cknapp is ranting about, is 65% black and 17.5% white. So, again, it's not blacks only. So what are you talking about?

Yesterday 23AUG2016, I was talking with a middle-aged black lady who carpools with us, she brought up the fact that a few years ago her church was having a “sign up” event for ObamaCare. I told her that churches conducting political activities on can jeopardize their tax exempt status, I told her I wanted to report that church to the IRS for investigation, she refused to provide the name of the church.
This is why WE Conservatives are constantly getting “run over”, because WE play by the rules. I have been to many churches in Fayetteville, NC…Methodist, Lutheran, non-denominational…NONE of them were conducing political activities, they do not even mention anything political, except to pray for our leaders.
This is why marriage has been re-defined, why gays (who are only 1.8 percent of the population according to the CDC, of which, not all are dedicated gays, and of course not all of them want to get married as do many straights)…those who want something, advocate until they get what they want, those of us working and paying for everything lack the b@lls to tell them to sit down and STFU, or we take away your free stuff….oh, and since the takers do not fund National Defense, why do we allow them to stay here with Free Protection?…….those who do not fund the Federal Government should not be allowed to vote…but I digress.

I hope President Trump rounds up everyone who opts out of such things and departs them to North Korea, 800 feet AGL, no chute… Where all Haters if America belong.
If someone hates America so much, why did they stay here? No one is preventing emigration.
May I begin by saying I am not a Democrat, Republican, Independent, or Libertarian. I owe allegiance to no one and nothing but the Constitution of The United States. I have serious concerns when I hear people say "round up everyone" who (insert your objection) and "depart" (deport) them to another country. Put the shoe on the other foot. What if people were calling for the deportation of all Trump supporters, or all people of a different sexual orientation, of a different race, religion, and the list goes on. How would you feel if that statement being made against a group of which you are a member? We may not like it (I personally believe the Pledge should be recited daily to remind us of our responsibility to preserve and protect our way of life) but EVERYONE, including you, has the right to free speech and the right to opt-out of a ritual in which they do not believe. This type of speech, yours, serves only to further divide people in this country. No, I don't believe in "safe speech zones" and the like, but what we need more than anything is more voices, not less voices. Wouldn't you rather know where a person stands than to have to guess what their position, motivation, and affiliations are? I want to know if my neighbor doesn't believe in freedom. I want to know why. I want to know what their affiliations are so I am more able to judge my family's safety and who is influencing my children. I wish you well, with speech like this, you're going to need it!!
Well presented post. Thank you.
Post like that are pretty rare around here.
I know the words of the Pledge of Allegiance by heart. And I have no problem with schools offering the Pledge as a daily routine, although I am concerned about schools forcing children to go through any ritual.
Don't misunderstand me, but seriously. If you were in China or Russia or North Korea and saw their kids at five years,long before they have any comprehension of what they are saying, declaring loyalty to the State, wouldn't you call that state sponsored brainwashing? Wouldn't you say that was creepy? I imagine you would.
The only reason it doesn't seem like creepy brainwashing in this country is because we are from here. Of course we think it's okay here, and creepy in North Korea.
John, Maybe someone would want their child to opt of saying a pledge that makes your child pledge an alliance under a god they don't believe in. Take out "under God". It wasn't part of the original pledge, and shouldn't be included in a pledge to the freedoms and prinicipals of a secular nation.
This s the last phase of empire.
What happens next is kind of ugly
The political class and liberal democrats have ensured the death and strife of civil war for our kids.
Freedom was never free. Even the founders of this country repeatedly warned that.
What. Happens after the war is what matters. With all the evil at americas gates, on can only guess what that looks like.
sosad4america, is apparently not that sad. By the way, it's customary to capitalize the A in America.
Yes Im sure that is what the Founders intended - deporting those hesitant to pledge fealty to a flag. BTW did you know the pledge was written by a Socialist?
CK, if the capitalization of a "screen name" is all you took from my comment, all I can say is I'll pray for you. America was not capitalized, not by mistake, but because we are NOT the country we used to be. We were all immigrants at one time. We came here to escape tyranny and a dictatorial/monarchical life. We came here to be free to live and worship as we choose. We didn't begin to fight among ourselves until some began to try to assert their power over others. By example; "If you don't believe the way I do you shouldn't be here." Many of the comments on here are a clear indication that we are divided, divisive, and generally unforgiving. We don't accept that it's O.K. to disagree and we don't need to be hateful to make our point. We wage war on others in our efforts to prove how right we are or how wrong they are. We no longer care for one another and with love try to explain our stance or listen to theirs. Once in a while, if we listen, we might just hear how we can help heal instead of destroy one another. If we do not stand together, we will surely cease to exist as an independent and free people. I respect your right to comment on my post, but I find it difficult to find kindness, healing, or respect in your original post and little more than nit-picking something you didn't understand in your second comment. If we can't say something nice, maybe we should consider keeping still. Can we agree to disagree and not slam one another, please!
If you love America so much why is your Avatar a picture of the Confederate Flag?
No wait nevermind you answered that question when you said that every dissenter needed to be rounded up and killed.
cknapp YEAH!!! That's freedom. Round up anyone who doesn't agree with you and kill them. Just because you don't want pledge yourself to a piece of cloth, and instead practice the FREEDOM it represents, you should be killed? I don't usually make statements like this, and I am sure they will delete it, but... you sir are a moron.
Better idea...drop them all in Hollywood and then build a big wall around it.

Interesting. When I graduated High School in 1979, I had learned to solve quadratic equations using a slide ruler, to estimate the output of element X or Y as the result of a chemical reaction. We were NOT learning about 2 Mommies and 2 Daddies, we were NOT learning about how to address someone…men were called men, women were called women, I do not recall anyone being offended by being called what they were. Interesting too is during my formative years we were still sending men to the moon….oh how we have lost our drive to excel.
Considering that the CDC indicates only about 1.8 percent of the population are faggootss or lesbeings (of which not all stick to the “program” they have CHOSEN…we all choose who to ******, therefore all fi_i king is a choice…for example, I CHOOSE NOT to ****** fat chicks…) we sure have wasted a great deal of time (30 years) and money in the political world and in media…to address such a small population of people..what a waste of national effort…we should have colonies on Mars already, if for no other reason than to ensure out own survival in case of a world catastrophe…spreading our genetic material across more than one rock seems like a worthy endeavor.

Liability? Really, can they cite an example of a civilian or firefighter having suffered damage of any type as a result of an American Flag falling off the firetrucks? If not, run the SUMBEECHES out of office on a rail…”Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” style (the movie of course).

Trump is attacking the WRONG people. During the first live debate with Mrs. Billary, Trump must look into the camera and attack the American Voter. Is is the fault of the American Voter that men like Trump must take jobs overseas because STUPID AMERICAN VOTERS keep electing people who emplace tax law and onerous regulations which actually FORCE businessmen to take jobs overseas. The American Voter is too stupid to figure out that their Voting Habits are the reason for America’s decline, the reason the labor participation rate is at its lowest in 30 years, the reason that THEY and their friends and family members cannot find good paying jobs…but THE AMERICAN VOTER IS TOO STUPID TO FIGURE THIS OUT…Trump MUST point it out on Live TV where all networks are carrying it…the first debate is the key…then he walks off stage leaving Mrs. Billary in the dust, alone on stage.
Good point! Judging from all your down thumbs, you must have struck a nerve with a dozen or so stupid American voters!

I am all for firing people who are incompetent…heads of VA, etc. If I were President Trump I would bring the #1 and #2 guy at the VA or other failed department, to a live, public news conference, fire #1, tell #2 he is now #1, do not screw up or he will also be publicly humiliated also…Oh, and the old #1 will be banned from being hired for any and all Federal jobs, appointed or otherwise….permanently. There MUST BE repercussions for poor performance, otherwise you foster more incompetence.
>>>"I am all for firing people who are incompetent…"
The Mr. Trump has to go?

As a 54 year old who has been full-time employed since the age of 17 I might be tempted to shoot a cop myself of I witnessed them allowing rioters to destroy police cars or other tax payer funded assets, or fail to stop rioters from destroying personal or business property without taking decisive actions to stop the rioters. I would not tolerate dereliction of duty by any cops.
Regardless of what supervisors are telling cops, stand down, etc. I expect them to do the right thing, and face the consequences of their actions in light of poor leadership decisions at a hearing. Just as I and my fellow Soldiers were expected to exercise sound judgement in the absence of orders, or due to poor leadership, it is a trait that makes the Military successful, not sure why Cops lack the intestinal fortitude to disobey immoral orders, such as being told not to protect and serve.

I consider Pelosi’s comments anecdotal, anyone can claim harassment to garner sympathy from the MSM.
I of course would not call her, no reason to allow her the opportunity to get my phone number and start stalking me.. She, like all other women on Earth, upon hearing I am hung like a horse, would never stop calling me!
Really, what Conservative has the time to make annoying calls to dim-witted Dems? We are too busy working to pay taxes to give free stuff to the mouth-breathers….

There is no REQUIREMENT for a Political Candidate to release their Tax Returns…I do not expect Trump to do anything “traditional” (such as releasing his un-required tax returns), that is why I support him…he complies with the law yet is demonized for NOT releasing non-required tax returns?
 August 12, 2016 at 10:18pm
I am thinking of voting Democrat this year….at least THEY stand behind their nominee, despite all the nefarious things circling around her which the MSM does not cover, thus keeping voters ignorant.
Trump beat 16 of the Republicans Best….yet the Party fights him more than they fight Billary.
Rush was right..the RNC does not care if it loses the White House, as long as those already in power keep their positions of power,.
cknapp, I implore you not to vote for Hillary. The DNC did not stand behind her-they crammed her down the throats of the Democratic voters. They ignored the Bernie supporters and suppressed the will of the people. Bernie sold out and received a 6000,000 house for his trouble. The RNC tried to ram Bush down the people's throat and he was puked back up-along with the rest of the Rinos. Trump may not be your first choice but Trump is not out to destroy America, Hillary is. Her VP pick had dinner with the son of George Soros. At this point it is the people who want to have a sovereign Nation against the Globalists. We are at the tipping point-we can't tip the wrong way.

#2…if anyone can show up as a “non-State” Team, then why not just get a bunch of the best from many nations and create one “Super non-State” Team to take all the Gold…you know, stacking a team?…get a clue…this is about Nations competing against Nations, not individuals forming a team.

Trumps should NOT be attacking Hillary at the debate. Here is what Trump should say, ONLY at the debate when America is watching and it cannot be hidden by the Liberal Media.
Trump (looking directly into the camera, during his opening comment, ignoring Hillary, the audience and Moderators): “I am going to tell you something that no one has told you, you are not going to like it, but I must tell you. The reason America is in economic decline, the reason men like me do business overseas, the reason YOU, YOUR Family, YOUR friends, YOUR kids coming out of college can’t get jobs, cannot get good paying jobs. Now I am going to tell you why, but I know you won’t like it, but at least I am going to be honest here. The reason America’s Corporate Taxes are so high and there or onerous, punitive regulations in place which actually FORCE men like me to manufacture goods and provide services overseas is….BECAUSE YOUR DUMBASS, THE AMERICAN VOTER, keeps electing officials who put policies in and tax laws into effect which are DIRECTLY HURTING YOU. Yet here I am, having to tell you that it is YOUR FAULT AMERICAN VOTER, for some reason you are too stupid to figure out that VOTING HAS CONSEQUENCES…and for those of you in a few key States who keep electing people like Harry Reid, Debbie NeddsToWasherShorts, Peolosie and a few select others who end up with undue power, who actively work to destroy the American Dream, in order to keep you dependent on the government. YOUR FAULT!!!
Very true & would be very accurate.
Except one major problem. He's supported all those tax plans in the past.
Love it. If only he would do it.
Yep, voting has consequences. This year, the consequence of nominating a blowhard RINO billionaire will be 4 years of Hillary.
Thanks, Trump supporters.
 August 11, 2016 at 10:52am
When debating Hillary, THIS is what Trump MUST do…
He must look directly into the camera and say….
“I am going to tell you, the American Public, why America is in decline, why businessmen like me take jobs overseas….but you are not going to like the reason, but I will tell you anyhow. I will tell you why the economy is not growing, why the labor participation rate is the lowest in 30 years despite unemployment numbers that look good. Now, I say again you are not going to like the reason for all these bad things…I am going to tell you why you and your neighbors, family and friends, kids coming out of college, are having a hard time finding good paying jobs….IT IS YOUR FAULT, the fault of YOU the VOTER. You are so stupid that YOU cannot figure out that by electing officials who enact the highest corporate tax rate in the world that your dumb ass can’t get a good paying job because the officials YOU elect like Reid, Pelosi and others HATE America and are intentionally destroying it…their polices FORCE men like me to do business overseas due to high corporate taxes and onerous regulations that REQUIRE I invest overseas in order to make a profit, which if I could afford to do business in America, more of you would get PAID from the PROFITS I and others like myself generate. YOU the American Voter must get your head out of your arse and elect people who love America, who will bring business back to America..I have more important things to do (walks off stage).
 August 11, 2016 at 10:10am
I sure am glad I am white, have a job and a p3nis…it must si_ick being a minority and being too stupid to figure out how to get a voter ID.
I think every voter should have to present a government recognized photo ID when voting as well as, a Social Security Card, and scanned fingerprints would be taken. The SSN would be entered into a live, nationwide database just prior to voting, to prevent anyone with that SSN from voting during the election cycle, to ensure SSNs are included on absentee ballots, thus if there are duplicate votes encountered for a SSN, all votes are negated, the person is then arrested and charged according for voter fraud.
