I told you this was where the action was going to be……………..Gary, Indiana School Board officials are arranging for students age 18 years old and older to be bused to the voting location in Crown Point, Indiana, the place where Hillary Clinton downed a shot of Crown Royal on a campaign stop last month in front of the media.

The Mayor of Hammond, Indiana chimes in that “When you corral kids together and ship them to polling places, it’s completely unethical”.

His city hosted Hillary Clinton on March 28, 2008 and is predominantly white.

Gary Indiana has a populous of around 100,000 and most of the citizens, about 90%, are black. This means that the majority of the kids being bused are black.

The Hammond mayor further chimes in, “These kids come from the worse performing schools in the state of Indiana and WE are giving them a day off to go vote for Obama. They can vote on election day like everybody else.”

The Gary School Board trustee chimed in and said, “This is a very adequate and educational field trip to go see the voting process and have time to actually vote. It is a learning process for government economics, which is a mandatory requirement to graduate.”

Washington said Gary Lew Wallace High School students have been bused to Crown Point to vote for three years now. “The entire board thought this was a great idea. We told (Dr. Mary Steele-Agee) to make sure all the high school seniors are able to go out and vote.

“Elections Board Director Sally LaSota and Lake County Elections Supervisor Michelle Fajman said Gary school officials notified them last week all high school students registered to vote would be bused to Crown Point this week.

LaSota said they wouldn’t turn away potential voters of any age. Fajman said, “Students don’t have time before school opens on election day to vote and they have extracurricular activities at the school. I think it’s a good idea.””

This was all taken from here:

Sounds like sour grapes to me. What about you?

BLACKS SHOULD SWITCH THEIR VOTE TO JOHN MCCAIN. LETS SHOW AMERICA AND DEMOCRATS WHAT NEGLECTING OUR PEOPLE AND OUR VOTE MEANS.

LIKE WHOOPI SAYS, THE REPUBLICANS MADE THIS MESS. LET THEM FIX IT. I FOR ONE HAVE ALWAYS SAID REPUBLICAN IDEOLOGY IS FLAWED AND THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME WRONG. THEIR STANCE ON JUST ABOUT EVERY ISSUE RELATED TO LIVING DECENTLY IS FLAWED AND WRONG FOR THE AVERAGE MAN.

WHEN YOU ACTUALLY LET THEM GET THE CONTROL THEY’VE ALWAYS WANTED, THEY FU_k THINGS UP. UNTIL LAST YEAR, THEY HAD THE HOUSE, THE SENATE AND THE PRESIDENCY.

WHAT DID THEY DO WITH IT. F THINGS UP!

THEIR A-HOLE TALK SHOW HOSTS AND SUPPORTERS HAVE BEEN SPOUTING THEIR “CONSERVATIVE VALUES ARE BETTER THAN YOURS” CRAP FOR DECADES.

“WHITE WORKING CLASS”, THEY TRICKED YOU INTO SUPPORTING “THEIR REVOLUTION” (CONTRACT WITH AMERICA). AND THEN THEY SCREWED YOU.

THEY DIDN’T TELL YOU IT WAS REALLY A CONTRACT WITH THEIR DONORS. TO GET GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS TO FILL THEIR PERSONAL COFFERS. TO GET YOU TO PAY $3 FOR A LOAF OF BREAD, THOUGH FARMERS (THEIR DONORS) GET A SUBSIDY FROM THE US GOVERNMENT ( THE CORPORATE FARMER MAKES MILLIONS OFF THEIR CROPS AND GET MILLIONS OF SUBSIDIES FROM THE US GOVERNMENT)

BLACKS HAVE ALWAYS GOTTEN THE SHORT END OF THE STICK IN THIS COUNTRY. MCCAIN F’ING UP THE COUNTRY EVEN MORE ALLOWS FOR THE POINT TO BE MADE.

YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE AMERICA TO GET SOMEONE IN THE PRESIDENCY THAT HAS TO ANSWER TO YOU.

OBAMA, DROP OUT. THIS ARM OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY THAT IS SUPPORTING CLINTONS RACE CARD PLAYING AS_, DOES NOT DESERVE YOU OR ANYBODY LIKE YOU.

THEY NEED TO GET WHAT THEY GOT COMING TO EM. WE’RE USED TO IT. THEIR NOT.

After this, the Republican Party will be buried. But not forever. Some of you are stupid enough to be fooled not once, not twice, not three times, but multiple times.

Your gluttons for punishment.

What the people/voters feel is negative. The exit polls, you now, answers of particular questions from people who voted (since your asking for definitions) tell the story that more voters think the Clinton campaign, that means her and yes you, her staffers, are running a negative campaign.

You want examples? No before I post them, why is that you Clinton staffers/supporters think you can get away with asking such a question like “define negative” in the internet age we’re in? It’s so easy to slap you into reality.

Here are just a few of the examples:

  • the Clinton campaign has pulled a radio ad that quoted the Illinois senator calling Republicans “the party of ideas” and suggesting he thought those ideas superior to Democratic ones.
  • she mocked Obama and his message of hope and change in a very theatrical, over-the-top manner.
  • Clinton Campaign Disguises Negative Flier About Obama’s Health Plan As Product of Edwards Campaign
  • The 3am ad
  • The Clinton campaign is using robocalls to tell Pennsylvanians Obama is not the candidate for them.
  • Congressman Delahunt to address the Negative Clinton Campaign Mailer in Mass
  • accusing the junior senator of being both inexperienced and a talker, not a doer
  • Senator Clinton has suggested that Obabma is all about the “rhetoric,” not substance, saying “You can choose speeches or solutions.”
  • former President Bill Clinton implying that Obama was “not a patriot”

Google them. YOU CAN LIE TO YOURSELVES ABOUT YOUR CANDIDATE NOT BEING NEGATIVE, but it is what it is.

I haven’t even mentioned the Billy Boys comment about Obama’s SC win and Jesse Jackson, or Geraldine Ferraro’s Obama being privileged to be a black candidate comment (she was a member of the Clinton campaign at the time).

How bout this:

Does this help explain why THE PEOPLE think Hillary Clinton is running a negative campaign?

How bout this then:

An excerpt from scummy Dick Morris in an article written November 27, 2007, explaining “How Hillary will go negative”

November 27, 2007 — AS her once-formidable lead in national polls dwindles and Barack Obama moves ahead of her in the all-important Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton will likely intensify her negative campaign against her rivals.

The Clintons’ political MO has always had a good dose of negative campaigning, especially when the going gets rough. There’s no reason to assume that they will alter their game plan now.

I remember Bill’s race for re-election as Arkansas governor back in 1990, when he found himself falling behind Hal McCrae, his unknown Democratic primary opponent. After Clinton’s 10 years as governor, McCrae’s attacks – featuring Daliesque stretched-out clocks tolling the time for him to go – were hitting home. Hillary decided to attend McCrae’s next press conference and engage him in a public, impromptu debate about his attacks on her husband. She gave as good as she got – and her foray marked the start of a four-week campaign of negative ads that brought McCrae down.

The Clintons used negative ads and attacks in each gubernatorial campaign – and, of course, in Bill’s two races for president.-

I can keep going if you’d like…………………..

YOU, CLINTON SUPPORTER/STAFFER, DON’T GET TO SET THE DEFINITION OF WHAT IS NEGATIVE.

Come general election, let Hillary be the candidate. She might have Bob Magic Maya Maxine Johnson vote for her, but for the most part blacks in general will stay home.

The Republicans can count on their constituents to continue to vote Republican because they’re well off enough and stupid enough to continue to vote for people who, never mind them destroying this country, will continue to put moola in their pockets through more tax cuts for their businesses or themselves because of their income bracket.

Hispanics are going to vote for Hillary, but there are not as many “eligible” Hispanic voters nationwide then there are blacks, so when you add their numbers to the six working class smoes who are going to vote for Hillary, they don’t trump what the Republicans bring to the polls.

You can stick a fork in Hillary’s ability to attract the black vote after her race card tactics against Obama. It’s dead. And Bill Clinton can kiss my as$!

Look no further then the steel city and it’s surrounding municipalities to find bitter small town folk who won’t hesitate to say so. This is the area Hillary threw down a shot of Crown at the bar to show she can hang with the boys.

We’ll one thing you can count on, it’s going to take more then drinking a shot of whiskey to convince those people in Hammond, Gary, Whiting, Griffith, Hobart, Portage and East Chicago that a vote for her is a vote for American jobs. These people will not be fooled. They are tough as hell and they see through bull s quite well.

I’ll say this, if the people in “the region” (that’s what they call it) outside of the city limits of Gary show strong support for Obama, this proves that he can garner the white working class vote. To me, this is the real test. Not those PA folks.

Those people outside of Gary hate black people as a whole because of the legacy of Richard G. Hatcher. Yea, I said it. I was born and raised in Gary. My dad worked in Inland steel for 30 years. I’ll call it like I know it.

But hopefully, those people understand that Hillary will play them like Bill did on the steel tariffs issue that his Administration tip toed around.

The real story is not what Indianapolis, Fort Wayne or Evansville think or how they vote. All eyes should be on one of the funkiest places on the planet, Lake County, Indiana.

Let’s see how funky Hillary can get. ( I really don’t want a visual of that)

America. You’ve had almost 8 years of Dubya looking you right in the eye and lying to you. You had every reason to get rid of him before his re-election, yet some of you blindly believed in the President. “He wouldn’t mislead us”, you probably told yourself.

I bet those of you who fit in this category believe ‘ole Dubya” when he said (today) that the US is not in a recession. He says we’re just in a slow down.

You need to take a look at a post I’ve got in my tax cut economics category for a wake up. Last month, I predicted this statement would be coming out of his mouth fairly soon.

If you want more punishment for your stupidity, a vote for Clinton or McCain gives you what you want. They have a proven track record of being the type of people who have no problem looking you right in the eye and lying to you.

Be it related to an issue concerning our national security or a just a regular old presidential stump speech appearance, they’ll tell you what they think you either want to hear, changing their previously touted position in the blink of an eye; or tell you what they need to in order to either stoke fear in you or to clean up something they said that exposed them for the lying souls they really are.

I don’t live in a small town now. I don’t own a gun and I keep my religion to myself. But yes I’m bitter. I’m originally from a small town called Bitter City (Gary) Indiana. I know what being bitter is like living in a small town that has got the short end of the stick year after year after year.

I’ll just say that, collectively, this country has worked very hard to make it what it has been. In spite of all it’s transgressions, it’s still been the land of opportunity.

We have a new opportunity to add to the legacy of those of the past (all races, creeds and colors) who shed blood in all aspects of historic struggles that shaped our democracy.

If only so many were so aware of this.

I just filled up my tank and the price of a gallon of regular is $3.50 plus at just about every gas station here in Raleigh, NC.

I just had to pay a $333 co-pay for a ct scan for my daughter earlier in the day.

I’m pissed.

I stop by a convience store and over hear several NC candidates for Governor advertisements for my vote while I was in line to pay for an overpriced bottle of Sunkist. All of them say that I need a governor that won’t look out for the special interest people or it’s time for the “not so special interest citizens of the state of NC” to have someone in the Governors house that will look out for them.

I get home, check the news on the net, and I’m inundated with video reports showing Hillary dancing on stage to the tune of Rocky, or reading about Obama asking people can they smell what he’s cookin.

And George W. Bush has the nerve to go to NEW ORLEANS of all places and dances on stage, having a good ole time with some house servant looking brotha with an umbrella dancing with him.

I have no choice but to vote and become involved in the political process no matter what the outcome of the 2008 Presidency for the rest of my life. I will not go down without a fight. The reason I blog now is solely to voice my “perspectives on life and politics from a brotha’s perspective”.

No political candidate speaks for me. I’ve got a decent paying job. I’ve got health insurance. I’ve got a home with a regular mortgage. I’m raising two girls and my spouse is someone with a Master’s Degree who’s had to accept a job paying her far below what she used to make and provide what’s needed to have something left after the important bills are paid, just to pay her student loans that will soon kick in after her deferment expires (she was unemployed for 8 months prior to this February 08).

I am doing great by some other peoples standards, but I am struggling to stay afloat. But I will stay afloat. And I will make my voice heard. I am neither black nor a liberal or a conservative. I am a citizen of these United States of America.

Hopefully, those of you voting for Hillary understands what someone is saying when they say they are voting for Obama more for the revolution that it fuels. Voting for Hillary does not fuel revolution. It brings back some of the same special interest people back into power or keeps some who’s already in power, in place.

The Clinton history of pandering has been “vetted” by ones look back at Bill’s Presidency. Do you think the Clintons are scared of any of us? Hell no. Especially not Bill. He’s shown us that hand.

I want someone who cares what white people are going to say about their moves/decisions. What Black people care about their moves/decisions. What Hispanics and Asians care about their moves/decisions. I want us all to have that weight.

I hope Obama wins. And after him, I hope someone else wins who’s so new to the scene that they too have not been around long enough to owe something to a special interest. They would have to worry about what THE PEOPLE think of his or her decisions as President.

And not let these bastards get away with gouging us at the pump and laying people off because their investors like it when they cut costs and move jobs overseas so the profits can go up so more rich people either here or in Saudi Arabia, Japan or China can buy the stock at a higher cost.

Hopefully, there are enough people out there thinking this way and not the same number of fools who actually voted for GHWB not once, but twice.
