    You wonderfully listed the real problem; economics. You and your dad have fought it and generation by generation you have begun to lift your family up. Your kids (if you have them) and their kids if they continue to follow your work ethic will pull your family legacy further up the economic latter (not that that is what matters in life exclusively). As you say it has nothing to do with race people must work to raise their families up. I wish you the best sir. God Bless.

    I think when people actually read your words with an open mind they will see you make some good points and I hope you do not mean them in a derogatory way. Just like within a specific race some people are more apt for one line of living and others a different one some races are as well. What I will add is family units were incredibly beneficial for the black family historically and that has been destroyed by the government welfare system exploiting people for votes. There is an excellent place in america for those who maybe do not “have the history of books and scholars” as you say. Those people built much of this nation (white or black or other). Look what government has done though; it has driven manufacturing jobs away, its has encouraged unwed births, it has convinced people they are victims. I know we both painted with a wide brush and like all things their are those who do not fit the “stereotypical mold” but I do think what you say, to a degree, is valid but it is important to realize that govt made things exponentially worse and even with what you say all races and all cultures can flourish under the TRUE american system.

    I know Megyn had to play one side so Oreilly could play the other but all of the arguments she presented were not a result of race. Most were a result of either poverty or personal choices that perhaps one racial group makes that another does not. Nothing about being white or black makes you have kids out of wedlock (a massive contributor to poverty and lower living standards). Your race does not make that happen. Likewise there is nothing about being white that gives you a hand up as they describe all of those things, they are strictly based location, choice, or economics. None of them are just inherent to a race. White privilege can not mean that at some point in the family tree someone pulled themselves up from one economic class to another and now the family benefits. Take any black person that is stuck in a poor life situation and replace them with a white person (so all economic and family situations are the same) and the result would be no different. If one begins life in poverty and does not fight to get out and succeed in that fight the cycle will continue regardless of race. Only the american dream and hard work can pull a person out and unfortunately the current welfare system destroys that. The racial groups that benefit the most, by percentage, are also those that have the lowest success in removing themselves from poverty. That is the statistic. That is what is so sad. Our government is destroying family legacies for votes; I don’t care race.

    Honestly I just read the story about a grandfather being beaten up over a gas pump and then read this and it made me laugh. People need to lighten up and laugh at themselves. I bet this man not only made his own day better but all of the people that were watching the story.

  • [2] August 25, 2014 at 11:20am

    This is just another sad commentary on 21st century America. I mean it was a gas pump. If time was an issue for you you actually wasted more time beating the elderly man then it would have taken to wait. I just don’t get it. God save us.

    I live in MN as well. Unfortunately MN is now on hyper drive in the direction of Illinois and other liberal states swirling the drain. MN has escaped because it has a relatively highly educated workforce and has benefited for decades from corporate headquarters and the Mayo campus. The problem is the corps are leaving and Mayo is changing itself into a defacto HMO in reaction to liberal policy in MN and nationally. The state is using the money it used to have to now explode govt work which (since it must be supported by private work) temporarily makes the state appear in good fiscal/economic health. Further, MN has been aggressive in seeking both Hispanic and the horn of Africa immigrants but not for jobs and economy building but exclusively for transfer payments that equate votes.

    Wait so taxes do alter behavior? See we were told that taxes really don’t affect people because they are offset by a benefit gained. That is why they tax cigarettes so high to discourage people from using them….oh wait that seems to imply taxes force change. Bad example
    Maybe this is more correct; taxes don’t affect the rich so they will pay more but not alter anything they do. Obviously the stories about blue to red state flight done by none other then the NYT are wrong, BK is lying, and countless other global corps that are no longer “based” in the USA are all insane. I mean the only other explanation for this is that liberals are lying about the affects of taxes and full well know it.

    Not to say the slavery in the USA was not terrible I merely was playing off your “now that was slavery” comment

  • [1] August 21, 2014 at 3:49pm

    You realize slavery the word does not soley mean what happened to blacks pre civil war right? Simply look up the meaning of slavery. Also if you really wanted to make a point by giving an example of “really bad slavery” then you should have referenced either pre-1850′s slavery in africa, the mongols, the barbarys, or countless others.

    He appears to have never said anyone has a right to have a business. He said the owners individual rights; very different. Of course liberals modify the language all the time to suit their arguments.

  • [3] August 21, 2014 at 3:37pm

    The only problem with your statement is it is categorically false…if we apply the actual law.
    -Being able to “read” has no barring on if someone “has to” be legally served by a business
    -You are basically advocating each of the examples I gave.
    -Your statements violate the most simple freedom of association and expression. These are not emergency workers (at which point other rights supersede based on the workers oaths)

    America 2014:
    you own a home and because you have let other people get married in it in the passed and they paid you for it you must now allow anyone to marry anyone or thing in your home if they will also pay you…basically a prostitute has more rights with his/her “business” then you do with yours.
    Some examples of the absurd to illustrate what our new “rights discrimination” has got us:
    Now I assume a black catering service should be forced to cater a KKK rally if they cater other events.
    Now I assume a Jewish baker will have to make a Nazi cake for a Nazi celebration if they make cakes for other people.
    Now I assume that legal prostitutes in Nevada will be forced to preform homosexual acts if they agree to preform heterosexual acts for money. (see how I brought it full circle there)

    So Don what you are saying is you report things on your national television show using verbiage that you yourself has established? Okay got it.
    Things we may see Don saying in the future:
    “I am able to legally beat an undocumented immigrant under Arizona law” (Don will define beat as give a handshake)
    “As a rich person I was able to have the stock market just steal a poor person’s money and give it to me” (don will define steal as making a more wise investment)
    “Most African American people are shot by white people” (Don will define white as meaning black)

    So saying you will veto any bill that gives tax payer money to a department headed by a district attorney who was caught drunk driving (3X over limit) and then disrespecting law enforcement constitutes “threatening a public official” but being sued by a liberal group that gets some kangaroo court/grand jury to indict you is not threatening a public official?

    And had this resulted in the little thug being shot? We would have riots; b/c after all if you lack a gun you must be innocent.
    Conceal and carry people. My wife got sick of seeing stories like this and recently began to carry as well. A little punk like this even attempts to touch her or the kids….lets just say she out shoots me now.

    So he was called a fog? or a fatg? I don’t get it……oooohhhhhhhh I see. Why use the @ symbol then? People need to grow up. That said I have seen so many faked receipts lately that I would like to wait and see. I mean an apple store in Oregon is likely one of the most homosexual friendly establishments known to mankind.

    Not excusing Discovery but if you watched that program, as I did, and thought it was real I have a bridge I would like to sell you. They “jumped the shark”, if you will, about 10 minutes into the show. Then repeated to jump it about every 5 minutes with “footage”. The best was after 2 hours of showing “actual video footage” where you could see the “shark” plain as day they ended by saying the lead “scientist” will continue to search the oceans to prove submarine exists……..ummmmm was the combined 10 minutes of video you “have” not enough? (an actual problem I have is if you want to make a mocumentary that is fine but at least keep what is known to be fact consistent. A lot of this program was spent talking about how “submarine” would hover vertically in the water. Sharks are not capable of doing this, being a bigger great white would only make it less possible.)

    Schultz responded saying the White House is “not privy to the details and have no role in any individual company’s plans,” but noted “what the president is focused on is stopping the problem.”———-
    Not privy to the details about individual companies? That is odd then how can the left demonize them so? How are the Koch brothers so evil? How did “you not build that”? How are corps so greedy? How do oil companies “exploit” loopholes? How do liberals say any of this when after all they are “not privy to the details”? Also how do you “stop” a problem you don’t know the details about? That seems like a recipe for disaster (which may explain so much of what Obama has done).

  • [18] August 13, 2014 at 12:58pm

    I moment spent in logical thought tells us:
    When a team wins a huge game = Riot and loot
    When a kid is shot = Riot and loot
    The only common denominator is the same group of people (not exclusive to race) riots and loots. So it is the people not the “excuse” that induces rioting and looting. A big happy win or a sad death are merely the excuses for the people.

    It said round objects…not oranges. Read the article, don’t just look at the pictures.
