Schieffer stated that Trump’s questions about Obama’s school grades were an ‘ugly strain of racism’.
Let’s see how this works. Colleges admissions departments can treat people differently due to the color of their skin. Rephrased, colleges can discriminate against one group of people due to their ‘race’. Apparently CBS’ Bob Schieffer thinks that racist behavior is acceptable. However, if you discuss that fact that people can be treated differently by college admission departments, you are a racist. According to an illogical, Schieffer, the discriminatory action itself is not racist, but discussing the act is racist.
Welcome to the insane 1984-ish world of racist CBS News anchors where discussing discrimination based on skin color is racist while discriminating based on skin color is not.
Here is video explaining how some Sheriffs in Florida intend to infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens in the State of Florida, if Florida becomes an open carry State. Rick Hernandez, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and Jim Coats of Pinellas County are disgraces to the badge for making statements like this. Hernandez states that anyone open carrying will be stopped. “When someone is walking down the street with an exposed gun, nobody knows if they’re legal or not legal. Do they have a permit? Maybe they do maybe they don’t.” No mention of probable cause. There are millions of people driving in Florida every day no one knows if they are legal or legal. Do they have a license? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. Imagine if you could be stopped in your car just to verify your license? Sounds like a police state.
Jim Coats goes so far as to say “rights need to be granted in a responsible way.” Sheriff Coats, I think you have the United States confused with a Fascist country, perhaps Hitler’s Germany. In the United States, rights are not granted to the people. Rights are retained by the people. Privileges are granted, rights are not. Hernandez ends with “If we think that people carrying guns openly makes you safer, I think that is a bad assumption.” If we are operating on assumptions, I think Sheriffs like these two individuals carrying guns openly makes the entire State of Florida less safe.
Sheriff Rick Hernandez says it will be “very, very cumbersome, and very, very scary” if Florida becomes open carry. “Very cumbersome”? Sorry, Sheriff, if doing your job is “cumbersome” perhaps you should find a different profession? We wouldn’t want to have our rights make your job more difficult now would we. He goes on to state that “our stress level is very high at this point.” Well excuse the public for making you do your job. You don’t like the stress level? Pick another profession.
I do not know who is hiring these Sheriffs and police officers in Florida, but the quality and caliber of the men involved is so low as to be disappointing to anyone in the State.
Remember: when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Exercise your rights or lose them.
The racists at USA Today are at it again, lamenting (yet another) of President Obama’s broken promises, which as USA Today states as “Obama’s broken promise: I’ll help jobless blacks“.
A simple question for USA Today: What is the different between “jobless blacks,” “jobless hispanics,” or “jobless whites”? Why is a “jobless black” more important than anyone else?
Why the focus on something as stupid as skin color? Ah yes, the racists have to focus on skin color in order to divided people. Dividing people is the way to keep people from seeing the real problem is those who want to rule instead of those who want freedom.
I want to know the jobless rate of people with green eyes, the jobless rate of people with shorter than average noses and the jobless rate of people with brown eyes. Hazel and blue eyes? Maybe next week. Not to mention the jobless rate of people with freckles.
Fascism was the shadow or ugly child of Communism. … As Fascism sprang from Communism, so Nazism sprang from Fascism.

Both are totalitarian systems where the government controls everyone and everything “for the common good” – and the good of the masters.
It’s a basic reflection of our belief that those who benefited most from our way of life can afford to give back a little bit more. Moreover, this belief hasn’t hindered the success of those at the top of the income scale, they continue to do better and better with each passing year,” President Obama said at an address about the budget at George Washington University. April 2011
Mr. President, “give” means voluntary. “Gifts” do not occur at the point of a gun.
The question is what does “natural born citizen” mean? Since Reconstruction, it has usually meant one parent was a United States citizen. Plainly President Obama meets the requirements if those are the criteria. There have been arguments as to whether that is the definition for President or what the Constitution means, but ignoring that for now, the real question is if the President has nothing to hide, why has he spent so much money and effort to hide his birth certificate?
It is amazing that so many people are ignorant an uninformed and they work in the media, starting with The New York Times. The press has decided to ignore important questions, and carry water for the White House. Let’s be clear:
1. A certification of live birth is not a birth certificate, contrary to what George Stephanopoulos seems to think.
2. If there is nothing to hide, release the birth certificate.
3. Write a letter to the Governor of Hawaii and ask them to release it.
4. Stop spending millions of dollars to stop its release.
Where is the media asking WHY is the President hiding the information?
One wonders what this book will show:
A 20-year-old Canadian man named Dmitry Smirnov methodically stalked and tracked a Westmont woman before killing her Wednesday night in Oak Brook — even stopping to reload his gun and continue shooting during the attack.
“Smirnov had done research on the Internet to determine if Illinois had the death penalty, deciding to go through with Vesel’s murder when he discovered it does not”. – Robert Berlin, DuPage County State’s Attorney, April 14, 2011
A true nut job, but someone who murdered because he knew he could do so.
