    ...claim no easy victories.


    Obama's victory will be claimed by some as a demonstration of Black political power.

    Not so fast.

    Look at the numbers.Latinos. Asians. Jews. Women. Gays. Transgendered.

    Women. Voted in record numbers.

    Women now in the Congress in record numbers.

    This was a Coalition of voters. Gay rights. Immigration reform. These were two of the main driving issues.

    Black nationalists. What is your driving issue which Obama will make a priority that was not addressed the first time around?

    Yes. When all was said, I will lose friends on either side, but when I was done, I gave Team Obama my vote, to silence their criticism.

    So now that I gave you my vote, what are you going to do with it?

    I am now only concerned with one issue.

    The increasing Wealth Gap which resulted in an over 53% decline in Black net worth since 2007.

    How many of you can actually say your net worth increased over the past five years, mostly under recession?

    Mine hasn't. As a matter of fact, the head architect at my job wanted us to take a paycut back in April but we voted against it and won.

    The funny thing is that during that DEVIL Bush's reign, me and my fellow employees were getting raises, bonuses and all kinds of company perks but haven't had a raise since late 2009 and the bonuses were cutout for us workers who occassionally work out of state. Some money in the out of state work per diems were also cut. Even though I make a very good salary, I earned those needed bonuses and raises. We are expecting raises in April (and will be getting them, guaranteed) but close to four years without one is ridiculous.

    Bush had did this country in hardcore but it seems like it's getting worse under this Puppet.

    Thanks for sharing.

    There was a time here when I got criticized for some of my posts, when I talked about how much wealth I had amassed under Bush.

    I am perhaps One of the few who can honestly state I lost nothing under the Obama recession because I saw the collapse coming. It was easy for me because I applied the same method as in handicapping horses. Follow the money. In fact, before it dropped I advised investing in foreign markets and where. South Africa and Brazil are just two. Seven years later. Rio is booming. Cape Town is booming.

    Black people have been caught up in swag and fashion while their net worth has eroded rapidly. It was only about $12,000 in 2007. It's now around $5,000. That's not even enough for a decent burial.

    Black people argue to me that's things have gotten better and ask "Can't you tell the difference?". I try to keep from laughing and walk off. Five years ago my net worth was more than double the typical white Americlan.

    Over 50 times the amount of the typical Black Obama voter who want to argue with me about Black political power, with barely a pot to piss in.

    My pockets start getting light around the fall of 2009 while their wasn't a change under that Devil Bush. My job started making those cuts right before the holidays of that year and those cuts set a brotha back. I honestly thought that the head architect was using Obama for an excuse to cutback on our bonuses, raises, out of state per diems and other perks but it was real. He was truly thinking about downsizing on a few of us designers but we had to accept the material cutbacks. Our jobs aren't Union so we couldn't fight. Luckily, things are looking up in the very near future.

    I'll NEVER cosign that Devil Bush and the evils he's done, even spending 16 billion a month funding those Middle East unnecessary wars but I can honestly say that I didn't lose a shiny brown penny from my bank account. Obama has EVERYONE cutting back and pinching pennies.
