Not trying to annoy you, just stating facts as many on here seem them. Except for your sad little group.

Loner, your attempts to annoy are beginning to sound a little desperate.

Please MB don't let your delusions of grandeur or your superiority complex get in your way of dealing with us lowly peons (or so you think any way)and our love of the Flag and our love of this country that the left hates so much. By all means you just keep thinking like you do and we will continue laughing at you as we do.

Loner, don't let your well-deserved inferiority complex (new word?) get the best of you.

No, MLK would be spinning in his grave if he could hear you conservatives pontificating on what he would say or do or what is happening with civil rights. Bil Cosby is no MLK.

And who does the NAACP hate the most? You guessed it! The CP part, who happen to think differently than they do.

Do you realize how he must be spinning in his grave to see how people have bastardized his movement and ruined everything he tried to achieve.

If MLK were here he would agree with you. Sadly, Obama, Holder, Sharpton and Jackson wouldn't. During one of the most recent shootings in Chi., Jackson ran to the nearest microphone and said he needed two billion more dollars. What an absolute disgrace he is.

No monkeyboy, most blacks don't choose to be poor. But many choose to sell drugs, use drugs, carry guns, kill people, not study in school, act like gangsters, father a number of kids who they don't support, etc. that's what they CHOOSE to do.

That just shows you what happens if you say something over and over. Some folks will start to believe it. "Republicans are racists." "The rich don't pay taxes." How many times have you heard someone say those things? Sadly enough, some folks start to believe it.

They take advantage of every tax break that they can. As I do, and as anyone does. They still pay most of the bills. I think where you are confused, many corporations don't pay taxes. The individuals do. GE doesn't pay any taxes, but if you made ten million working at GE, you would pay taxes on that money. The richest of the rich in NYC pay about 50% in taxes. The NFL rakes in billions and pays no taxes. The players are all taxed at a healthy rate. Of course, the ones who play in NY and NJ pay more.

If MLK would have lived and became the first black president, he would have put helping blacks his top priority. And he wouldn't have been afraid to show a little tough love when the situation called for it.

You know blues, the truly rich pay very little in taxes, because their unearned money is protected by law. People who work and have earned income pay the bills, whether they are janitors or neurosurgeons.

NYC has a lot of highly paid professionals who pay taxes, and billionaires who don't. I only have issues with the latter.

Of all the things he failed at, I think Obama's greatest failure will be his dismal record improving poor black neighborhoods. Sure they'll be those who will say that the old white guys in congress wouldn't give him enough money to throw at the problem. He knew they would vote dem anyway so he did nothing to help them. First black president does nothing to help blacks, what a disgrace.

Wasn't talking as much about life sentences as I was bringing back the death penalty and chain gangs esp. for the murderers and child molesters. And no treating them as if they didn't do anything wrong like some of the left seems to think is NOT the answer.

I said that days ago, dave. Welcome to the party. It's actually all those pesky rich folks that everyone hates so much that pays the bills. If they are covering all the states bills, I guess they are paying their fair share, aren't they?

Obama said "any fool can have a child. It takes a man to stay around and raise the child." As I said, Cosby pretty much said the same thing. No one chooses to be poor. I'm not going to look it up, but I think 15% of the population is black. And somewhere between 40-50% of the prison population is black. 70% is the number of black kids born whose father is not in the picture. That drives poverty, which drives crime. Most don't want to talk about it and if any white person does he is called a racist. If a black shoots a black they just want to blame the white guy who owns the factory that made the gun. Obama and Holder have done nothing to help blacks for six years. Why? Because they don't have to. Blacks will vote dem no matter what. Dems take them for granted and we all know what would happen if any white pol said "any fool can have a child."

formerlylone said, "Molly coddling criminals doesn't work."

Actually, it does. Sending them to prison for decades merely assures that they will be professional criminals and misfits when we finally let them loose ... which is the case 99% of the time.

If you want to make all crime punished by life in prison, plan on building, and paying for, a lot more prisons. Actually, keeping someone in prison is pretty expensive too.

My personal belief, Seadog, is that the prison population mirrors the ethnicity of people living in poverty. Now are you going to claim that blacks choose to be poor?

Where did I say most white people are racist? Don't try to drag the entire white race in to your cesspool.

"Seadog calls prison a black man's lifestyle choice and claims it's not racist"

Another lie told be the leader of the I hate white people club. Where did I say the above monkey? I believe I posted "Blacks are 40% of the population! but 70% of the prison population. Discrimination, or a life style?"

Since most white people are racist according to you, I assumed you would have jumped on the discrimination bandwagon. So do you mind answering my question about the disproportional incarceration numbers?
