Re: Vote for Obamanation or there will be a race war

I think that's the least of your worries. The US news teams today (Fox for example) are so concerned that people might actually believe the jokes coming from the Saturday night live comedians more than them that they're wasting air-time trying to counter what was said.

That's far more telling and damning than whether of not either of these idiots pull the race card. How the hell did you guys end up with such a p*ss poor choice for president again? It almost defies belief

Re: Vote for Obamanation or there will be a race war

The fact that it's those two standing for election makes me feel the cards were well and truly stacked unfairly. If that's true, it doesn't really matter who you vote for or why. The "real" boss is sitting quietly somewhere smoking a cigarette, stroking a white Persian cat, calling himself Ernst and saying, "Buzinezz as uzual, my Friendz!"

Re: Vote for Obamanation or there will be a race war

The only reference to race in that article is below:

"If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness - and hopelessness!"


And in context, she is saying that if the wealthiest members of your nation keep up the current economic path to disaster the poorest members of your nation will become increasingly disenfranchised.

This is not a "race card" this is an article about the poor getting f**ked by the rich and the fact that, as she sees it, the republicans will do nothing to address the increasing divide between the rich and the poor.

What's the problem, Dr? The poor have been getting fu*ked since forever...
Maybe that's why there's so many of 'em

There's an answer. I could see this only happening once and then the poor learn how important the rich are. You elect your president and pay the taxes they set; others will vote for the other guy. At the end of four years, the poor will be worse off. Why is that. Because the rich didn't vote for the guy that promised visions of gander for the poor. The poor did and now he has no way to pay for the services the poor enjoy. No money from people that have no money means they get nothing.

That works both ways, Ian. Once in power, the guy that did promise to help spends the first 2-3 years meeting with lobbyists for the rich. There are no real lobbyists for the poor. Ergo, the poor get fu*k all all the time.

Re: Vote for Obamanation or there will be a race war

There is so much partial truths and spin from and about both of these candidates that you would need to have spent the last four years reading and studying all thier voting records and comments and then speaking about it in full truths with no bias to have it make sense to all, in essene dumbing it down to laymen terms for it to actually have any effect on the outcome of the Presidential voting. Even then, most Americans don't hear what they don't want to hear and only take the what they do want to hear to heart and stand behind it. There are two voters here, those whow vote for black or white and those that vote for experience and inexperience(fresh/new). This is not a hit for either candidate, just what I see as how Americans will vote. I am a veteran and believe in experience, it just sucks that here we are preparing a case for the lesser of two incorrect choices again when picking the leader of this Nation. God help us all, I think both have good qualities but at the same time disagree with some of each of their policies....ugh....there will be discontent with whoever wins, as usual.

Re: Vote for Obamanation or there will be a race war

The U.S. is not a socialist country. Why should the U.S. citizens stand for forced wealth redistribution? You are free to make as much money as you can. Performance pays. Is it any different in the UK? Are there not poor everywhere?

Poor becomes a state of mind. Education is the answer.
