“I know that you think publicly saying you support Romney is some sort of dangerous or reckless thing, which is obviously a childish opinion.”

“This is institutional racism. Anything bad that happens to minority in America is institutional racism. My college professors said so.

“I remember back in the early 1960's when blacks were gaining a lot of power some fell behind and were involoved with the wrong crowds of people The very worst ws known as the Black Panthers. It was this group who "coined" that term Inst. Rascism but if one wants to believe it then he cannot call himself a law abiding citizen. He would be more compared to someone like George Zimmerman who took the law into his own hands and is now and forever being ostracized for it. I am 71 and a well educated retired nurse.”

“You don't see a lot of white men executed for killing black men. Know why?

Because very few white men murder black men comparatively. Black men are five times more likely to murder a white man than vice versa.”

“OK so because not as many white men murder black men is the reason why they are not sentenced to death. Only when a white man kills a white cop and a black man are they sentenced to death..

If you take into account all of the black white encounters that have occoured in North America I am sure that more blacks have been killed by whites than the other way around.

“It will work. Look at the FACTS not through the eyes of someone who does not want it to work for whatever reason. LOOK AT THE FACTS!! I am a veteran of 11 years in the insurance industry form being a claims adjudicator, to an insurance sales person to the Director of Benefits of an employer with 25,000 insureds. Yes, there are some flaws, but the vast majority of the plan (yes, I read it in it's entirety) are to the benefit of the majority. You may or may not recall that long before "Obamacare", employers have been playing the "let's reduce hours to reduce full time employee benefits". Nothing new here. There is tremendous buying power when you "pool" people (the exchanges) rather than standing on their own. The buying power of a group of 100,000 is much greater than the buying power of 1,000. Give it a chance with an open mind, not with narrow tunnel vision. Even when people see how well this works, they will still find some reason to criticize. Unfortunately, those people tend to see everything negatively. Life really does not have to be that hard.”

“Mike Wallace:

"In 1981, Wallace was forced to apologize for a racial slur he had made about blacks and Hispanics. During a break while preparing a 60 Minutes report on a bank that had been accused of duping low-income Californians, Wallace was caught on tape joking that "You bet your ass [the contracts are] hard to read" if you're reading them over watermelon or tacos."

If a conservative did this, you idio-ts would never stop complaining. You would brain them as a monster, forever. Like Paula Deen, LoL.

But I guess it's ok because Mike Wallace was a partisan Democratic hack. Shows how much respect you really have for racial minorities.”

MountainPenelope on Sep 24, 2013 at 13:06:24

“No, it doesn't. Wallace may or may not have made that remark, and if he did, it was shameful. However, I cannot forget all the good work he did. Having watched him over many years, I do know he was a thoughtful and dedicated journalist. And, like many men and women of his era, he realized his insensitivity and changed his behavior.

Chris, however, has proven over and over again, his disdain for people whose cultures are not his own.”
