There is no question Rev. Wrong is unpatriotic and a racist. “God damn America” His conspiracy of our government creating AIDS and his inflammatory comments to whites. The Rev has no grounds for any of his slander. That is insane that you try to justify it.
I agree we do have to cut spending. The more programs and the highers taxes the more we allow our government to spend irresonsibly.
Barack is not hiding the fact he’s going to raise our taxes and redistribute income.
McCain will do a better job economically, he’ll kill more terrorists, and keep national security high.
None of the candidates are great, but Mac is the lesser of 3 evils.
I think Rev. Wright cursing America for the sins of the leaders has nothing to do with patriotism. I think people that swallow what ever our government feeds us are naÃ¯ve.
Do you think we are killing terrorists in Iraq?
How will Obama redistribute income?
You must have somehow missed a few of his comments: “The KKK of America” or how about “The government infecting the black community with AIDS”. Wright is a racist of the first order.
There’s no way Obama can distance himself from Wright try as he may. Wright will follow Obama around like a bad fart…right up to November…if he makes it that far.
The fact that Obama sat at his feet and lapped it up for 20 years should bother just about everyone…other than those who really do hate America.
That’s not you is it?
By the way the redistribution of income that Obama plans would be one of the worst things to ever happen to this country economically. As soon as you take away the desire of the average American to gain more wealth you eventually bring down the standard of living.
The top 50% of income earners pay about 96% of all income tax. That means that one half of this country is supporting …through their tax dollars…the other half. It’s already an alarmingly high figure. What happens when it’s raised even further? Incentive is taken away from that top 50% and the money will no longer be there to assist the other half that is needy.
One more point…when the President and the democratic controlled Congress wanted to stimulate the economy what did they do?
Did they raise taxes? D
Did they create government programs?
They sent money back to the people where it originally came from…granted not fairly…But…both parties saw this as being good for the economy and good for the country.
Then what would make anyone think that raising taxes especially on the over taxed top half of the population would actually be good?
Both Obama and Hillary would be a disaster for this country. If you think Bush was bad you will quickly go from bad to worse with one of these clowns.
I do not know your age, but I spent a lot of my childhood (1960ï¿½??s) south of the Mason Dixon line, I remember the attitudes of the time. Rev. Wright would have been a young to a middle age man dealing with the Jim Crow laws. Things are much better now but I still see racism among whites as well as blacks.
I agree with you saying Wright will fallow him around like a bad fart, as far as listening to an elder telling a new generation about Tuskegee or Iran contra or Hiroshima should offend no one.
As far as the top %50 of people paying %90 of the taxes, an article in the Arizona Republic said the Top employer in Arizona is Wal-Mart, the majority of the top 20 are Retail. How do expect someone whose wages ($8.00 an hr.) have been beet down by an over abundance of cheap labor to pay any taxes when they can barley survive?
As far as our government giving us money back from our taxes to stimulate the economy, I do not know if it will work or not, but it is not a far stretch of the imagination to say it is nothing more than pandering.
With your tax cut philosophy, you are ignoring National Debt, ($30,000 every man women and child). Out of every man women and child you know, how many could qualify for a $30,000 dollar loan? 1 in 5 that would make that personï¿½??s share $150,000
I do not know where national debt was when the Soviet Union collapsed. I bet it was now where near $30,000 per person. This is why in my opinion our dollar is so weak and our economy is sputtering.
