Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

They only help deadbeats and crooks. Fortunately for them, they are being very successful at creating lots of unemployed and underemployed folks. That way, they too can be deadbeats. Yay! Yay! Yay! Creating more democrat voters...they think.

By the way, is a black in the inner city any different from a white in the inner city? If so, how?

Maybe one of them will feel the overwhelming need to kick the sh*t out of you when you retire down there.

Democrats are such racists in general. Black people should despise democrats. I know I do. Your party's history is racist, and your present is as lying racists, viewing everything through the prism of skin color. Conservatives are not like that, your stupid lying propaganda ontinuous loop notwithstanding.

Let's see, if we raised the minimum wage to $9.00 per hour but obamacare has already caused millions of workers to be cut to 28 hours per week, and many more will be added to that cut, they still would be making much less money than they were during the Bush years, just like the median income of everyone else under this dunderhead, scumbag, has also gone down. Good thing O' is a democrat or you'd be complaining your a-s-s off.

Democrats don't ever do any permanent good for anybody. Their policies help nobody who works.

You're welcome. I guess I'm Thomas Sowell now. He really did his research on that article. No research needed for why blacks can get an ID every bit as easily as any other color person can. That's because I already believe that God created everyone equal. Have believed that all my life. Blacks do not need special handout, affirmative action or anything else that whites don't need. THEY ARE EQUALLY ENDOWED WITH THE SEEDS OF GREATNESS. Got it? I didn't think so.

Even the parents of my parents on their farm down south in the 30's always invited the black help inside the house to the family dinner table with them and that was a long time ago when not many white folks did that. My people love people of all colors. If they judge anyone it is based on their character and their behavior...nothing else.

I know, you can't understand that, cuz you're a real racist. You are also a regionalist who ridicules southern folk. You've done it right here in this paper.

If minimum wage had kept up with inflation, it would be $9.00 an hour. The fact that it isn't shows Republicans would pay $1.00 an hour if they could. That is what minimum wage does.

Thank you RS, for giving us your perspective as a black voter in the inner city.

If you have no idea what your name is or where you live, we'll simply call you Jaxacoma Normoutcold. It has a nice ring to it, whether you are red or yellow, black or white...or pink.

Tomorrow I'll offer to teach anyone who can't sign their name, how to do so.

This has been a public service announcement from Rshill7. You're welcome.

Can anyone in Alpena explain this to me? I've had an ID ever since I was 12. I had black friends that also had ID's when they were 12. I've never met a black person who didn't have an ID. I've never even heard of a black person without an ID.

Can anyone name anyone in the entire country who doesn't have an ID? A person cannot survive in this country without an ID no matter what color they are...unless they are completely off the grid, and completely withdrawn from society. Even then, they probably have an expired ID, but wouldn't vote anyway. Off the grid is off the grid, right?

So it's either pure unadulterated racism to claim ID's suppress black votes, or it is a blatantly phony way to continue fraud. You see, this may come as a shock to you, but those perpetrating fraud do not want to identify themselves. Weird huh?

If anybody does not have an ID contact me at BR 549 and I'll pick you up and take you to get one.

Why are voter ID requirements deemed as the "suppression" of black votes? Why is it not deemed the suppression of white votes? What is it about darker skin that would prevent a black person from getting an ID? Nothing. They can also shop at WalMart, buy houses, cars and hold down jobs. Ya reckon Oprah has an ID? I do too. I also reckon that every black person has an ID unless they are completely off the grid. Are there more black people than white people off the grid?

I think whites and blacks are equally capable of getting ID's. I also think they are equally capable of doing anything whites can do. I am a conservative. All men are created equal...women too.

Isn't the very loud assertion by the left that blacks can't get an ID as racist as racist gets? The left thinks they must be much less capable than whites. Why? They shouldn't think like that. I've never seen a "whites only" sign at the ID issuing place, have you?

That was half-hearted Normindless. Nothing new either. Give it another go. You can do better than that.

Pretend that your imagination hasn't been turned into dusty spiderwebs from frying your brain cells for so many decades.

Also, pretend you have something to talk about other than me. Tell us about your ideology and where you'd like that ideology to take us.

oh crap, in order to pretend, you'd need an imagination. Nevermind.

What a loudmouth bigot. Sales must be slow shrill, all you accomplish daily, at least in this forum, is disdain for minorities, hate for Obama, and an arrogance beyond reason. Take a long look in the mirror, you will mesmerize yourself with stupidity.

"23,116,928 to 20,618,000: Households on Food Stamps Now Outnumber All Households in Northeast U.S."

Out of all those, which one's are hungry? I thought the major problem was that they were too darn fat...Michelle O' said so. Maybe that's why they're so fat, they always think they're hungry, so they never stop eating.

What other lies do you have for us today lying sack of sh*t?

The article I posted was a 100% quote from Thomas Sowell, a highly educated, respected black man.

He needs no advice on how to be black from you.

I need no advice of any kind from you. I don't take advice from fools. I guess you're going to continue the Jaxass is an idiot campaign again today...good.

And with the debt ceiling deadline looming, the GOP will be concentrating this week on Obamacare and cutting food to hungry children. Nice priorities.

PS: Add Minimum Wage to the list of things RS knows nothing about.

Posted 428 days ago.

Rs's concern for black people is really touching. They have a dream, that someday they will be invited to the GOP convention, and that GOP laws suppressing their voting will be overturned, and that companies such as Chick-fil-A might hire a few more of them.

What does EVERY mass shooting have in common? They all took place in gun-free zones. Who made military bases gun-free zones anyway? That would be Bill "cigar" Clinton in 1993. Thanks Bill, lots of innocent dead victims because of you.

Obama wants the entire country to be a gun-free zone. In other words, he wants the bad guys to be the only ones armed.

If new laws changed criminal's behavior, our prisons would be empty...like 57's head.

You don't need any freedom either. I prefer two 40 round magazines. A clip is not a magazine. However, one who calls a clip a magazine, doesn't know what the heck they're talking about.

Obamacare called it's tax a fine, then called it a tax again at the Supreme Court. That must've been a lie too.

Snyder raised taxes on fishermen and hunters and called it a fee. Honesty is something I never expect from a republican and I am rarely surprised.

I am probably in the top 1% for frequency of shooting guns. I don't need no stinkin 30 round clip.

People who are content to advocate policies that sound good, whether for political reasons or just to feel good about themselves, often do not bother to think through the consequences beforehand or to check the results afterwards.

If they thought things through, how could they have imagined that having large numbers of idle teenage boys hanging out on the streets together would be good for any community — especially in places where most of these youngsters were raised by single mothers, another unintended consequence, in this case, of well-meaning welfare policies?" (Thomas Sowell)

white labor unions urged that a minimum wage law be applied to all races, to keep black workers from taking jobs away from white unionized workers by working for less than the union pay scale.

Some supporters of the first federal minimum wage law in the United States — the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 — used exactly the same rationale, citing the fact that Southern construction companies, using non-union black workers, were able to come north and under-bid construction companies using unionized white labor.

These supporters of minimum wage laws understood long ago something that today’s supporters of such laws seem not to have bothered to think through.

People whose wages are raised by law do not necessarily benefit, because they are often less likely to be hired at the imposed minimum wage rate.

Labor unions have been supporters of minimum wage laws in countries around the world, since these laws price non-union workers out of jobs, leaving more jobs for union members.

that allow black parents (among others) to take their children out of failing public schools.

Minimum wage laws can even affect the level of racial discrimination. In an earlier era, when racial discrimination was both legally and socially accepted, minimum wage laws were often used openly to price minorities out of the job market.

In 1925, a minimum wage law was passed in the Canadian province of British Columbia, with the intent and effect of pricing Japanese immigrants out of jobs in the lumbering industry.

A well regarded Harvard professor of that era referred approvingly to Australia’s minimum wage law as a means to “protect the white Australian’s standard of living from the invidious competition of the colored races, particularly of the Chinese” who were willing to work for less.

Once, years ago, during a confidential discussion with a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, I asked how they could possibly vote for minimum wage laws.

The answer I got was that members of the Black Caucus were part of a political coalition and, as such, they were expected to vote for things that other members of that coalition wanted, such as minimum wage laws, in order that other members of the coalition would vote for things that the Black Caucus wanted.

When I asked what could the black members of Congress possibly get in return for supporting minimum wage laws that would be worth sacrificing whole generations of young blacks to huge rates of unemployment, the discussion quickly ended. I may have been vehement when I asked that question.

The same question could be asked of black public officials in general, including Barack Obama, who have taken the side of the teachers’ unions, who oppose vouchers or charter schools
