That is pretty disgusting, having a picture of MLK Jr. at this ignorant hate rally. What happened to the black leaders who wanted life, liberty, happiness and freedom for all people…not preferential treatment based on race. Or true freedom of choice and ideals…not tyrannical systems like communism and marxism. These people are just more examples of a bloated system, being both the cause and continuation of classes of people who don’t realize what made this country into the greatest ever to exist in the history of the world. These people don’t even know what our forefathers, or the civil rights leaders, or even modern freedom fighters stood/stand for.
This is precisely why Mayor Bloomers wants to legalize pot in NYC.

Bob is one of the few liberals in the media or government that I have any respect for. He appears daily on a right leaning network to discuss the issues with people who may not share his views, but still view each other as friends. He is one of the only liberals I’ve seen that seems to love America and isn’t afraid to show it or say it. I think the only reason he is a democrat is from his upbringing and his honest want to help the less fortunate. If only he’d realize that big government cannot do anything for anyone efficiently, wasting massive amounts of tax payer’s money in overregulation and beauracracy.

Where was this “influential group of black pastors” the last election? When African-Americans of all affiliations OVERWHELMINGLY supported Barack Obama, including…gasp…Christians. Obama has always opposed abortion-control/eliminating legislation, including the limited restrictions currently on the procedure (the ones that prevent doc’s from sucking out a newborn’s brain at 8.5 months). Abortion is a legitimate argument for a religious institution to speak out against as most view it as murdering a child. The “anomaly” of African-American Christians supporting him…..remains a mystery…..yeah. Marriage however is NOT a religious issue at all, I’ll tell you why. If a gay couple wants religious acceptance, they can pursue that course. But rights granted by the government to a married couple are guess what…a state issue, not a religious one. Realistically, the government should afford the rights reserved for married folk to any two (or maybe more than two) people who choose long term cohabitation. So marriage in religion can stay the union under god of a man and a woman, “marriage” (call it what ever you want, maybe “cohabiting rights?”) in the State’s definition can stay as a set of rights afforded to two people. Simple and easy…..you would think.
