    regardless of the presidents his policies Romney would have been worse!
    public housing, public schools and civil service jobs would have felt the guilotine, and AFRICOM would have colonized the Motherland in 4 years.
    They have a plan, a collective united plan, but we have none, and if you fail to plan you plan to fail

    You can bet your last money that what will be in the White House in 2016 will make Ronald Reagan and Ed Meese look like John Brown and Michael Moore

    Same "axe' as b4 and always will be until my PEOPLE rise AGAIN spiritually.

    Yes, In conscious reality ---like many people of colour I voted for President Obama x2;

    However, deep down in my sub-conscious mind I am constantly embedding the truth. There are many anglo-saxon programs out there just a spinning; and then, there are the programs that matter, the programs that everyone else wants either a big piece of or a lil piece of ...Our morphology, mythology, history, wisdom, strength, foresight, vision, knowledge, and finally OUR Spirituality.

    President Obama fits all except SPIRITUAL -- and ironically that's JUST the one WE most need.

    Sister Fine you raise a very intellectual point. IMHO, spirituial means how we use the aspects of the Creator, that is within us to love and support one another as a people.
    Historically we seemed from the record to have had that from 1888 to 1988.
    Do you think the self centerdness and materialism and regionalism of Hip Hop culture has eroded some of that Spirituality that we had?

    ? So you are saying they are spiritual and not the issue cause they go to church, or not spiritual and exemplify the the attitudes against unity mentioned?

    While I agree with you in principle, looking at the CPS data, blacks actually fared better, economically under Bush than they are faring under Obama.

    Bolton: Bush Left Obama ‘a Mess’

    More than three years after his former boss left the White House, John Bolton spoke out Wednesday, saying that President Obama came into office in 2009 and had a number of problems to clean up after President Bush's eight years in office. Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations, also gave some free advice to presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, saying it won't pay for Republicans to try to debate how big the mess was. "I think people would agree with Obama that he was left with a mess," Bolton said. He added that Bush's legacy would get better the farther away we get from his presidency.

    I'm aware, but if I were a betting woman (and I'm not), I'd lay a dollar to a dime that if we had a white president, Congress would be more willing to get behind him/her and the economy would have taken no time to get fixed. I think, don't recall 100%, (I've got CRS) in a response you made in another thread to me, you stated rising tides lift all boats.

    I'm just saying

    PS: I really like our dialogues :)
