Goldwater objected to the 1964 Civil Rights Act on constitutional grounds; he didn’t feel the federal government had the constitutional right to impose affirmative action in hiring on companies. He believed in Civil Rights he voted for the two previous civil rights bills that were blocked by the Democrats. He was demonized for his constitutional stance by Martin Luther King and that is probably why the Tea Party is despised by the civil rights crowd. What Goldwater predicted about affirmative action came true, it was not until 2013 that the SCOTUS put the brakes on the out of control interpretations of this part of the act.

Sad if it is true, but look at the way the letters are written. There are elements of cursive writing and the lines are very strait for a young child to write. It really looks like an adult did it.

How about the huge population of whites in the early days of America that were indentured servants because they had to pay off debt or sea fare. They were often treated worse than slaves because they weren’t permanent property. Do I hear their descendants complaining today?

I am also amazed that there are many terms derogatory to whites (even used by other whites) [i.e. "white trash",hillbilly, redneck, coon ass] that are not even considered bad. My priest in his sermon last week it seems the only sin in this country anymore is racism. My daughter said in school her teacher said the only word you can get in trouble for is the “N-word”, that is if spoken by a non-black.

Maybe we need to teach in schools that a small percentage of white families in America even owned slaves in the early days, it was about 4% in the south and 1.4% overall. My family was here in the early 1700′s and I can prove we never owned any (you can check census records). It also came to my shock that many Freeman Blacks owned slaves and slave gangs. In fact in some areas of the south, the percent of freed slaves owning there own slaves was as high as 28%. Read :http://americancivilwar.com/authors/black_slaveowners.htm.
I bet if you ask a black today (or even most whites) any of that information they would be surprised or tell you that you are lying.

Amen Brother ! I saw war from the air and I gladly risked my life for guys like you.

Racism will only get worse in America as long as people embrace Mr. Terrell. I heard a deaf man filled with hate that will never admit a rush to judgement. How can anyone heal an old rift with this attitude. As far as Oklahoma, I think the University is correct in there action and I am appalled at the student’s behavior. The national headquarters of SAE need to speak up forcefully against this chapter. I grew up in southern Louisiana in the 60′s and I never heard anything like this when I went to college and I lived in Oklahoma for 10 years as an adult and never heard it either. I hope this is an isolated case or race relations recently have taken a turn for the worse and it isn’t white man’s fault this time.

New raw meat info (from a North Carolina radio station)
- The guards only spoke spanish
- The robbers spoke to them in spanish
- They smelled gasoline, not a break down
- They had no idea what they were carrying
MY guess gold was not on truck then

The way I see Mr. King is that the Republicans gave the administration more money than they asked for yet they refused to vote. It’s not the Republicans you RINO. You just played right into the Democrat’s hands…get a brain.

So if DHS is shutdown and there is an attack it will probably be in a liberal area and they will be screaming for blood. Hum.

For all that want her jailed…At all costs she should not be convicted prior to Obama’s term of office is over. She will surely get a presidential pardon before she steps in a jail. I wonder how many BO is going to pardon as it is.

OK, then maybe the House can send a bill limiting funding in the sub agency that would handle the immigration policy handling. Funding the rest 100%. Smoke and mirrors is what I see. Republicans need to make a stand !
Sounds like you were driving a newer Ford Explorer Limited, besides lane sensing and adaptive cruise control, you should have mentioned auto parallel park and collision warning . I have one and love all those features and more, Best part it’s American and doesn’t have bail out money.

Spot on except you forgot about Egypt.

One thought, who is shaking in their boots right now? A: Iran. ISIS and Iran are diametrically opposed. Iran now has a foothold in Yemen, but that has brought fear into Saudi Arabia who are sworn enemies of the Iranians. So in the near future, the two sides will further bring to WW III to a larger audience. The only comforting thing is oil is being horded on the world’s market as an insurance policy if they start. That will only be a short term policy though, The rest of the world will get involved when oil stops flowing from the Middle East, they won’t deal with animals. So this “game” is very confusing but the end will produce the same result. I’m buying oil stocks as a hedge.

Nice observation. The problem is they take what the main stream media says as gospel. Even the president does get all the information, only after it is very filtered does he get it.

Agree 100%. Even better, if you saved for retirement your child can’t get any financial aid except a loan because of your assets. That is true even if you have $40K in income. My child is 100% on my dime if they want to go to college. If I never saved, He could get plenty of aid. Well there go my retirement savings. After my two finish college, we will be poor.

Before the first Gulf War we helped Saddam with his war with Iran. We had AWACS and AEGIS ships to provide early warning and Intel to him.
BTW- We still do not know everything that went to Syria in that truck convoy in the second war.
 February 16, 2015 at 4:19pm
Were you there? I was in both Irag wars and Afghanistan too in command and control. I also spent a lot of time watching Sadam break the cease fire agreement between wars. I had high level security access, I know what I saw and read.
My biggest complaint with Bush is his State Department advisors told him to disband the Iraq Army completely, a big mistake. IMHO as big of amistake as trying to instill a democracy in Afghanistan. We paid the price for doing both, Obama made it worse in Afghanistan by sending large amounts of US troops on an impossible ans misguided quest. A lot move died there under Obama. He also released the lid on the Islamic pressure cooker by supporting the Arab Spring. The Iranians are smiling now. The next step is the war between IRAN and ISIS after one them takes on Israel. I just hope and pray we support Isreal …big doubts with Obama in charge.

I’m military and knew this all along. I will NEVER NEVER vote for a Democrat after what they did using the politics to discredit President Bush’s motives. I didn’t even agree with the decision at the time…I feel Iran is and has been more of a threat than Iraq ever was.
The destruction of WMD were part of Iraq's concessions to end the 1991 Gulf War, liberation of Kuwait. The search for WMD was justification for inspectors to be roaming around Iraq for all the years up to 2001. Don't you remember that Clinton was bombing sites when the Iraqii's weren't opening them up to inspection? Bush justified his invasion of Iraq on the basis of WMD, which weren't there. He discredited himself, then bungled the occupation. Our troops suffered and died for this.
There were recent reports that some WMD, chemical warheads, were encountered by US forces and there were injuries. These were leftovers on the back lots of some depots. I was not surprised at this. There were lots of weapons sites, heavily damaged by the Gulf War airstrikes. Would you want to be the Iraqi commander telling Sadam "Oopsie, we still have a few sarin gas munitions here"? I wouldn't.
First and foremost, thank you so much for your Service to this Great Nation :) You are absolutely correct about the weapons of mass destruction, as a lot of Military in that theater also knew and have stated. In addition, Russia was there, and in deep with Saddam. They scurried across the border into Syria with all sorts of stuff. From what if heard from former CIA agents in the ME, is that we the U.S. knew this but under the circumstances, we couldnt take on Russia at the same time as the war with Iraq had just begun.
FACT, Saddam Hussein and his evil sons, had been working on missile deals with NK. The negotiations occurred in Syria, and Saddam had already given a 10 million dollar down payment. They weren't just ordering NK missiles, but were going for a full production line to manufacture, under an Iraqi flag, the North Korean missile system, which would be capable of hitting American allies and bases around the region.Needless to say, they lost their deposit when we went into Iraq.
Finally, I didnt understand Iraq either. But what I have heard from top Military/Intelligence speak over the years, was that without question Iraq was a danger to us and others. But, their main objective was to surround Iran, the primary supporter/haven for terrorist leaders ect. Afghanistan on one side, Iraq on the other....sandwich and surround Iran...
gert, these were more likely to have been Iran-Iraq war relics that were disposed of by burying them in a large pit, which was the Iraqi's standard disposal practice. Once the disposal sites were no longer guarded after the fall of Saddam, some enterprising person was merely digging them up and selling them to us for money ..
Eric, Bush himself admitted there were no WMDs found in Iraq, and that is what our Inspectors were reporting to Congress, etc after the war ..
Did you ever notice that hard core liberals are always also darwinists? J-MO for example. Do you know why? It's because they firmly believe that they are more evolved than most other humans. And we- being a few evolutionary cycles in arrears need them to decide how we should spend our lives. This life stuff is not easy, and its a good thing to have folks like him around to set our thinking straight. Being he is much more capable of parsing information , and discerning its true meaning to our lives.
