The Obama Jobs Plan: Hire Black Criminals

2 Shares


 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Happy Fourth of July, everyone. God bless America. The question is: Will there still be an America, or capitalism, after President Barack Obama is through with his second term?

It sure doesn’t look good to me. We have no money for fireworks displays at military bases across America and no money for patriotic fly-overs at military academy graduation ceremonies. We are letting down our heroes, the people who sacrifice selflessly for us.

But there was $100 million for Obama’s trip to visit Africa, and Obama has now pledged $7 billion to double electricity access in Africa. This has to be a comedy skit, right? This must be a nightmare. It can’t be for real, right? Seven billion dollars for African electricity, while he kills the coal industry so average, middle-class Americans won’t be able to afford our own electric bills? What about our $17 trillion debt in America, our trillion-dollar deficit, our disgraceful failing public schools or our aging and decrepit infrastructure?

And Obama also has billions of dollars in aid as well as military aid for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Palestinians? Even the protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo are accusing Obama of propping up the Muslim Brotherhood. Are you kidding me? Something is deep-down deadly wrong, folks. This man is destroying our country and our economy. He is killing the middle class. He is making a mockery of American values across the globe.

But don’t take my word for it. Let me give you perhaps the perfect example. Everything I just mentioned is child’s play compared to Obama’s newest directive. Now, Obama has truly gone off the deep end. He’s thrown off his cloak to show the “S” on his chest, standing for social justice. Obama has just decided to kick the U.S. economy while it’s down.

What’s Obama’s latest brainstorm? Force businesses to hire criminals — and not just any criminals. Obama wants black criminals to step to the front of the employment line. If only I were joking.

Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is charging the automaker BMW and the national retailer Dollar General with racism, discrimination and violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act for using criminal background checks before hiring employees.

How can this be? Don’t companies have a right to check backgrounds before hiring employees that represent them? Don’t companies have a right not to hire convicted criminals? Not anymore. Not in Obama’s America. At least, not if the criminal is black.

The Obama government’s logic is frightening. The EEOC argues that because blacks are more likely to have been convicted of a crime, doing a criminal check discriminates against blacks. So when you won’t hire an applicant because of his criminal record you are… wait for it… yes, a racist.

Seriously, folks. This is happening in the United States of America. If the courts hold for Obama, this will be the final body blow to job creation, economic freedom and the U.S. economy.

But let’s set that aside for a moment and think what this does to your own civil rights.

When you hand your credit card to the clerk in a store, wouldn’t you like to know he isn’t a convicted identity thief? When you walk into an empty home for sale, wouldn’t you like to know if the realtor is a murderer? When your wife goes for a massage, wouldn’t you like to know the masseuse isn’t a convicted rapist? Or, worse yet, when your child goes to school, child care or an after-school program, wouldn’t you like to know the person you’re leaving your child with isn’t a convicted predator, sexual abuser or pornographer? If Obama gets his way, there will be no way of knowing, certainly not if the employee is black.

Well, according to the Obama Administration, if you ask those questions of a black job applicant, you are a racist and committing a crime yourself.

How can anyone run a business not knowing if the people he hires to deal with customers might be convicted rapists, thieves or murderers? Employees are the public face of your business. They represent your brand. They are your thin blue line, your eyes, ears and face to your customers. And don’t think you won’t be sued if one of your employees commits a criminal act against one of your customers.

How bad can this get? Well, the EEOC not only wants to ban background checks for black Americans, it wants the 70 black job applicants who BMW refused to hire because of criminal records to now be hired and given back pay and legal costs. On the other hand, the white applicants who were rejected don’t have to be hired. Obama’s EEOC argues it’s fair to do criminal background checks on whites.

You couldn’t make this up in a fictional novel without being laughed at. You couldn’t put this in a “Saturday Night Live” skit. The critics would call you ridiculous. Yet it’s happening in real life under Obama.

So, what choices does a businessman have if the Obama government wins its case? First, companies will cut back hiring as much as possible. But if you are a business owner in this hostile Obama workplace environment, you’ve probably already done that.

Second, if you do start a new business, you’ll be looking at a business model that require no employees or very few employees.

Third, you might decide to close your current business. It just isn’t worth it under Obama to take big financial risks, when government makes it this dangerous, difficult and unappealing.

Fourth, if you do need to hire employees, since you have to follow the law, companies will find some unrelated reason not to hire the applicant on whom they are legally unable to conduct a background check. Talk about “unintended consequences.” Young black men, say goodbye to jobs.

So who here is destroying the U.S. economy and who here is the racist? Is it the employer who is color blind and hires on ability and character (after seeing the results of background checks) or Obama, whose policies force employers to either stop hiring, slow hiring or hire as few black applicants as possible?

Obama proves every day that you can’t run an economy based on equality, social justice and retribution.

Somewhere out there in cyberspace, some liberal wacko extremist will accuse me of being a racist for daring to talk about race. Just remember that all I’ve done here is describe Obama’s jobs policy. These are all his words. He is suing employers to stop background checks on one specific group: black Americans. He is the one saying that blacks have much higher levels of criminal records. He is the one demanding black criminals be hired. He is the one saying in court filings that background checks on whites are perfectly fine.

Oh, and remember one other thing. The true definition of a racist is: anyone who’s winning a debate with an Obama supporter.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Happy Independence Day. Let’s all pray for independence soon from Obama. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless.

    July 4th, 2012, Bedford, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, held their annual fireworks show. Before it was all over, a mob of 50-80 BLACKS began attacking the townspeople at the fireworks show. They were hitting people in the face with no apparent reason other than to disrupt the festivities and hurt as many people as possible.

    When it was over, many citizens complained to the city council. Some even complained that they were being prevented from discussing what happened because of political correctness. To avoid the mob violence that has plagued the town’s 4th of July celebrations, the city council decided to cancel the display this year.

    Bedford isn’t the only Cleveland area town to suffer from the racially charged black mob violence. Communities such as Shaker Heights, Maple Heights and Warrensville Heights have also experienced the same type of violence caused by mobs of 50 to 100 black youths who are completely out of control. Shaker Heights, like Bedford decided to cancel its 4th of July celebration because of the black mob violence in the past.

    There were a number of similar stories from people in several surrounding towns, all reporting the violence and chaos caused by the BLACK mobs…This is the area where many voting precincts reported 100% of the votes had been cast for O’homobama. These mobs are his supporters.

    • Sarah Conner

      Instead of cancelling the fireworks,I would suggest that these good people train and buy firearms,qualify for a CCW and then do so,,,these punks come looking for trouble,I suggest you give it ti them…DO NOT LET THESE THUGS CONTROL YOU…YOU CONTROL THEM,CAUSE I’M SURE THEY WON’T BE PREPARED FOR YOU TO FIGHT BACK…THEY ARE NOTHING BUT RABID DOGS THAT NEED TO BE PUT DOWN NOW…

      • podunk1

        You’re not looking at the positive side of things – maybe could find something for Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Holder… maybe making little rocks out of big ones. With a little motivation, any one of them might discover something they can do.

      • Bill

        Good comments, Sarah
        The line is being drawn in the sand

    • montbrun

      This kind of things happen because white people do not take action
      and expect the “authorities” to take care of things, forgetting that in
      most cases such “authorities” are political appointees who will tow
      the “Political Correctness” line come hail or high water.
      Therefore, if from past experience what just happened might repeat,
      some whites should have gotten together and with baseball bats,
      give these black troublemakers the beating the never experienced
      before and see whether the so called “authorities” or even the Chief
      Authority of the Nation will dare jail have a town….

      But while this passivity goes on and the lowest strata of the black
      population with the classic chip on their shoulders believe they can
      get away with murder because one of them sits in the White House
      and has proven to jump on their defense no matter how wrong they
      might be, I see no other way than to take justice on our own hands
      as nowadays in this country, the tendency is to let off criminals with
      barely a slap on their wrists…

      • monizame

        Amen to that..Whitey has to quit their sissy whining and do something about it or shut up/

    • Karolyn

      This kind of thing happens because not enough change has taken place in education and opportunities. That is the only way anything can be changed. Better teachers, better education, more training programs, more church involvement, etc.

        Faith and Morality have been banned from our schools and society. The teachers are all militant Union, supporting this government run school system, and worshipping this admin.

        • Karolyn

          First of all, Alondra, if Obama were my puppet, I’D be pulling the strings, not the other way around. Second of all, if you meant that I am HIS puppet, you are sorely mistaken. Third, I am not totally supportive of any party and believe that both Repubs and Dems are equally at fault.

      • TheOriginalDaveH

        Blah, Blah, Blah. And now for some anti-Propaganda.
        Things will not change until people wake up to the fact that Leaders are purposely using public schools to indoctrinate our children and keep them ignorant so they will continue to keep the Leaders in office.

      Thanks for your post. I was in Cleveland for a convention in 2010, and I will never return to that town. Most the employees were ethnic, and glared, sneered and jeered at whites. I was especially fearful of a black bartender, who looked as if he would jump across the bar and strangle you. I found this same attitude in hotels in Baltimore and DC. DC had mostly hispanics that would congregate and speak spanish, jeering and laughing at the customers.

      Alondra, are you white? Is that how or why you know it was all the blacks fault and not the fault of any white in the crowd???? Were you there or is that just how you want it to be??? That’s pitiful for an adult but then all adults don’t think like adults!

      • wavesofgrain

        NC…these MOB attacks are being hidden from the Mainstream Media. Perhaps you did not know this is the new rage? They are happening in every Urban large city. They are now using Black Mob Attacks for initiation in their gangs…must beat up a white strangers to belong. It usually happens to random people waiting for a bus, or walking home. The cops are called, but have done nothing becaus of PC.

        Nut Case asks: “Were you there or is that just how you want it to be???”
        No Nut Case, I was NOT there and I do NOT want it to be like that!!!

        Nut Case asks: “Is that how or why you know it was all the blacks fault and not the fault of any white in the crowd????”
        Nut Case, I know that from the people testimonies and Police actions:
        “[M]any citizens complained to the city council. Some even complained that they were being PREVENTED FROM DISCUSSING what happened because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.”

        Nut Case, I answered your questions. Now please you answer my:
        Would Police and the City Council play POLITICAL CORRECTNESS if the mob happened to be White?

        Reporter Reports “Even though this has been happening for several years, very little has been reported by the mainstream media and Obama has been silent on the whole issue. Instead of trying to stop the black mobs, Obama’s silence is seen by many as his APPROVAL of their actions. Is it any wonder why our nation is going down the crapper?”

  • Harold Oslen

    If I were a business owner, I’d be hesitant about hiring felons. I’d do a background check, and depending on the individual may or may not hire the felon. Business owners have the right to ensure that the people they hire are not going to steal from them. But a crook like Obama doesn’t give a damn about that. What’s next? Demand that employers fire white employees and replace them with black criminals? It’s coming. I’d bet on it.

    • TheOriginalDaveH

      It’s all about buying votes. Obviously Obama thinks Progressives will get more votes from the blacks as a result, and that the whites will mostly just let it go and still vote for Progressives.
      He may be right. Meanwhile, Government keeps growing and growing and growing.

  • justaskin

    If there had been a proper background check on him, he wouldn’t be running America now would he? Maybe he sees that as justification for his behaviour?

    • Dale DuBois

      Your are right, we now have a President who was elected with out a background check mostly because all of his records were hid. Would a white person been elected without a background check?

  • KG

    Thanks to the “war on drugs”, and the draconian ‘mandatory minimum’ sentences that ‘law and order’ types demanded, there is a significant portion of our population that have ‘felonies’ in their record. Even for something as minor as possessing a single marijuana cigarette. I wonder if an audit of Wayne’s buddies would turn up a coke head or two? Possibly a child molester as well. We know he has to associate with some kind of criminal element. After all, he lives and works in Las Vegas.

    These ‘law and order’ types have known for a long time that these laws have affected ‘minority’ populations worse than ‘white’ populations. And this was on purpose. When many poor blacks moved into public housing, due to racial discrimination, they couldn’t get the good paying jobs needed to become independent. So they became trapped in a system of institutional racism. We all deserve a second chance in life. If someone is willing to apply themselves, regardless of what past they had, why not give them a chance? After all, that’s the only thing humans really need.

    • Fight for Truth

      Are you serious? Have you considered treatment? You sir are a prime example of what is wrong with America. Every employer in America is forced to do criminal background checks. If they don’t they leave themselves wide open for massive lawsuits. You’re out of your mind.

    • Stuart Shepherd

      I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I actually agree with you (KG) to a large extent (although the comment about the child molester is sickeningly vile and cowardly)- people DO deserve a second chance in life and there ARE draconian laws that prevent them from clearing their records in many cases, but;
      1. They DID actually do whatever it was they were convicted of (presumably) and it is actually to their spiritual benefit to accept that, own it, and use that barrier to themselves to do, maybe, something else even better or just accept that life’s not completely fair or a bed of roses. It certainly hasn’t been for me.

      2. Regardless, IT’S UP TO THE PRIVATE EMPLOYER TO MAKE THAT DECISION. IT IS AT THEIR DESCRETION AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE LIABLE.

      “Liberals” are the vilest, most vicious, most discriminatory and hateful people around. They want all these special rights based on their own self-proclaimed victimization in order to take away our God-given (decent) ones. I have come to think of a liberal as synonymous with evil. The Supreme Court and somehow not upholding a perfectly constitutional law enacted by congress (DOMA) (while upholding Obamacare!) is now fully evident (after roe v wade) as a completely evil branch of the government. Congress is corrupt and fascist. The president is a complete pathologically lying sociopath- and that’s not an exxageration. What does this sound like? Does this sound good to anybody? Are we not in DEEP, DEEP, DEEP, DEEP trouble?!!!!!

    • montbrun

      And needless to say, this was the case with somebody like HERMAN
      CAIN, a BLACK man I would have blindfolded voted for President
      but was disqualified because he had an insignificant extramarital
      affair….
      Had he been a switch hitter or gay, he would have ran, right …????

      By the way, GINGRICH was forced to resign as House Speaker
      because he used several times the private plane of a friend or
      political contributor…

      How come NANCY PELOSI got away with using many more times
      Air Force planes to commute between her California home and
      Washington and even with friends, all at taxpayers expense…????
      Or is it that to get away with murder, one has to be a DEMOCRAP ??

    • Mith Radates

      Right on, KG! Now, if a felonious employee reverts to criminal type and rapes/robs/murders a business’s customer or causes other mayhem, the business owner can deny all liability on the grounds that he was prevented from doing a criminal background check. This will save insurance companies huge legal costs and business owners huge liability insurance premiums because plaintiffs will not be able to use the “you should have known” argument. You are a genius.

    • Falino

      KG, it is heartening to know that someone with the liberal, system fed world view is on conservative sites. There is a reason that laws impact minority populations more than white, but is it really for the reasons you were fed? I know you think so. Now with all the affirmative action hiring preferences, scholarship preferences, and every other of the multitude of government money funded programs where one can receive stipends while you go for certification for job training or school and still drop out in droves (I’ve talked to people who run these programs) they’re “trapped” right?
      Only White Guilt can keep the masses from seeing the obvious, and the system makes sure the indoctrination is thorough in schools, especially “higher education.”
      MLK spoke of content of the character NOT the color of the skin. Keep paying attention.

      “This was on purpose”?
      “They moved into moved into public housing, due to racial discrimination”?
      Where do you get this crap, KGB? And why hasn’t the Leviathan Government, that you Socialists have Forced upon us, cured that problem?
      The Federal Government has grown 8 times larger than it was in 1900. We have more social problems than ever before. And the Socialists still want to thrown more gasoline on the fire to put it out. Amazing.
      Will you Socialists ever throw in the towel and admit that your agenda is a total failure?

      • KG

        I think I put the comma in the wrong place. However, many of the ‘Allentowns” that sprang up after WWII were discriminatory in the selection of future residences.
        If a black man couldn’t buy a house due to discrimination, he had to find a home somewhere. My grandparents (both sets) lived in public housing after WWII. However, because they were white, they were able to get good Union jobs and move out into their own homes. But, unfortunately, many black families were trapped in public housing because no one would hire them.
        And that’s a fact. Were the Unions racist? In 1950’s America, there weren’t many institutions that were NOT. However, anyone who believes Unions are still racist has never been to a Union meeting. I know for a fact that Unions are the LEAST racist, sexist, or classist organizations.
        This fourth of July should remind everyone that this great experiment in liberty is not over. The American Experiment is ongoing and never ending.

          So the Union Leaders will take money from whoever offers it. Is that supposed to be noble?
          I have never been able to buy into the discrimination scenario for black poverty. My high school was 30% black and when one of them would study hard and get good grades the other blacks would harass him unmercifully.
          I knew a black lady who would sell dresses at parties similar to something like Amway parties or Tupperware parties. She said that she always did much better selling to white people because the black ladies were jealous of her success. Now of course those very local anecdotes don’t prove anything, but it has been my general observation that the blacks hold themselves back. At any rate, what is keeping them in such situations from forming their own companies and selling to each other? There have been many other nationalities who were initially discriminated against and industriously pulled themselves up by the bootstraps.
          There is never any excuse for Forcing people to do things they don’t want to do, KGB. If you do that, then you are no better than the Union Bullies you stump for.

  • Dirty Daug

    I think Obama has gone off of the deep end. If a Republican President who was white had did every rotten thing that Obama has done since he was elected President, a white Republican President would be in Jail. Maybe even a white Democrat President would be in jail by now. Even in the State of Illinois we have one white Democrat Governor who just got out of jail and another still serving his time for doing less crap than Obama has done mostly because they were not black. Every time some black person is killed by a white person some bid deal is made about it. When some white person is killed by a black person it don’t even make the news. My personal opinion is that the animalistic trait in some black people is coming out, but not all of them. We have some very good black people in America who are very getting very ashamed of some of the people of their race.
    My opinion is that Obama is nothing but an animal of the worst kind.

    • Stuart Shepherd

      The problem is- some of the good ones aren’t ashamed ENOUGH, because (I think) subconsciously they know they benefit, also, by being perpetually portrayed as noble victims despite the circumstances and as victims, enabled by the narcissistic, self-promoting liberal establikshment and the media.

      “The Obama Jobs Plan: Hire Black Criminals

      Obama the most successful criminal of this century, wants to hire those like him…not surprising really. Do any of you outside of government want somebody like Obama working for you?

    Would the ruling class in this country risk the safety of their families by dealing with businesses that don’t adhere to standards like criminal background checks? You know the answer. Laws like this are for the little people. The unwashed masses. Our families don’t deserve safety.
    How much attention do you think this policy is going to get from the mainstream media? Again, the biggest disgrace, the enablers, the biggest source of low information voters.
    The absurdity of these times is just astounding. The same people who us our tax money to sue for laws like this have to disarm us to ensure our “safety”!

      Actually, disarming you is intended to ensure their safety. Your doesn’t matter!

    • Vis Fac

      Unfortunately most people in America today are products of liberal indoctrination camps known as the public school system. A true well rounded education vanished in the late 60’s and has declined each year to the level of producing functionally illiterates who depend on government for everything. The government gives them entitlements government sponsored “lame stream media” are the “keepers of knowledge and will tell us what they think we need to know. Government and Constitution are no longer on the curriculum replaced by propaganda and LGBT sensitivity or other studies that erode character and stifle creative thinking. Thank Liberal one dimensional ideology for the “dumbed down” school system than has created a nation of ignorant automatons. Automatons that vote DUMBOCRITIC That’s why ODUMBO was elected in the first place. His re-election affirmed what I have said.
      *a footnote as you mentioned disarming the citizenry for OUR safety – I am amazed that liberals are comfortable entering a bank that has armed guards (to “protect” worthless paper that can be replaced) and care nothing of protecting the most important assets we have OUR children, and in the same breath murder and care nothing of our future assets. It boggles the mind.

          I think you have the answer for business survival for the immediate future. If you hire illegals, you are not required to pay Obamacare, and they are a protected class that does not have to pay any taxes.
          They are voting in all of the elections and eventually will become the ruling class. At that time, Business will have to find another solution to survive. Maybe relocate to Russia

          • Vis Fac

            A lot of business has relocated at least the big ones offshore. The government has taxed business so
            much and the American consumer buys foreign products (especially Asian autos) over domestic so not realizing by doing so supports a foreign country’s economy these firms try and stay solvent with cheaper labor overseas so why not?
            When I still had my engineering firm I noticed a rapid decline in industrial orders because a lot of firms were either relocating out of the area (Commiefornia) or going out of business. This due to consumer apathy towards domestic products.
            The firm was doing well after Reagan’s revamping the tax system at least until Clinton’s second term in office. Higher taxes (state and federal) tighter regulations and
            restrictions made for a less than business friendly environment. So rather than work for nothing (because that’s what I was doing), I closed down and 75+
            employees were out of work the state and feds were out of my and the 75+ employees tax base and everyone lost. (At least I wasn’t working 18+ hours a
            day anymore) Liberals see every day as April 15 and want to tax business thinking we are all big business make a fortune never realizing their jobs could be affected that is until it is.
            Liberals have a one dimensional ideology they “live for the moment” and NEVER consider ramifications of their actions.

          • Bill

            You hit the nail on the head, Force Recon.
            I know of a lot of business owners that are closing their business’s and just working as an consultant. It has gotten to the point that the more people you hire, the less profit you make. The liberals current war on business has created a climate where you make more money, work less hours and have less headaches if you downsize and stay lean and mean.
            So much for the liberals “jobs” programs. Their only job creating is the public sector at higher than market rates

        Have you been asleep the last few decades? Liberal one dimensional idiot-ology mandates that only white people can be racist. Never mind all the racial slurs that permeate “hip hop” (noise by any other definition is still noise) or stand up comedy. This is perfectly acceptable because a non white says it. But on the flip side a black female ghetto urchin can say cracker and other slurs and it is interpreted as a “cultural thing”. Here we have another example of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS (re-education) run amok!

      Yes, the Income Tax is an onerous byzantine nightmare.
      But think of the alternative tax systems being offered as the hand that the magician wants you to see.
      The real problem here is Government Spending. No matter how they take the money for that spending, most of us will be hurt.
      And, as Bob Livingston has pointed out many times, if they weren’t taxing it away from us, they could simply borrow it (forever) from the Federal Reserve and thus tax us the hidden way — inflation.

  • Southernhemisphere

    I wonder how many addicts set upon the bench and serve sentences on the lives of others? I wonder how many White males lynched Black males over the course of the “Jim crow ” south and left their respective “barbecues” to go serve Holy communion on Sunday morning.? So what if our country is delivering a group of persons who have been repeatedly misrepresented and mistreated constantly. It’s about time we rectify our Karma. i guarantee you that there are those men and women who not only desire a 2nd chance but actually deserve one. And I would much rather see our citizens working and earning their keep honestly than sitting in a prison eating up my tax dollars for some overweight guard to sleep, sell drugs, and otherwise abuse their position of power. Our very well educated justice system has seen fit to allow those who qualify a second chance. It’s wonderful. If he or she is lily white or black as the ace of spades, what the hell does that have to do with the content of his or her character? Are ya needin some higher ratings or something? And Paula Dean ought to be forgiven with all her contracts restored.

    • mike austin

      You can rectumfy your own karma. Giving criminals a 2nd chance depends on how they work to deserve it. Not the color of their skin.
      Who is misrepresenting and mistreating blacks constantly? You? It is other blacks doing it. Pull your head out of your backside and stop feeling guilty for what you erroneously believe other have done.
      If you feel so strongly about giving them a 2nd chance, go hire one without a background check. Good luck….

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Why as a society have any laws at all, why bother putting up fences to protect Individuals from human predators. You actually hate people to come up with your stupid comment. Why bother having governments, let everyone run amok, be hedonistic, let disease run rampant, let people do what is “right” in their own eyes. Too bad so sad, let the mop up crews in.
      In plain American English “you are full of it”.

      ALL actions have consequences, so it behooves all to think before they break the Commandments of God and men or act contrary to them. If God doesn’t outright punish you for wrongdoing, men will. You have prove that no more crimes will be committed by the hirelings.
      As for Paula Dean, what has she done WRONG? All I see is some disgruntled cow of an ex employee and sleazy lawyers wanting some easy money by blackmail.

      It’ll never happen.
      Once you realize the Government is just a very large gang, everything else they do becomes clear.
      As Clifford Thies says — “To say governments were formed to protect the rights of men would be historically incorrect. Almost all governments were formed by ruthless men exerting their will over others through the use of force. Some governments, over time, evolved toward the rule of law, perhaps only because their rulers saw that this would sanction their own continued enjoyment of the wealth that they possessed. In some instances, this evolution involved one or more “revolutions” in which those who were governed were able to better establish the rule of law”.

      That is true. I applaud you for that, Robert. But that is your choice, and what other employers do SHOULD be their choice. The Federal Government has no Constitutional Power to dictate business choices.

    Hard to imagine that any court would uphold such a blatantly racist policy, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see the liberal bloc of SCOTUS back a President they adore. So much for “the content of their character” as the touchstone by which others are to be judged. In Obama’s world, the end (jobs for blacks) justifies any and all means, including racial preferences.

      So, in your world, there are no male masseuses? Interesting!

        In the world of REALITY, a masseuse is female and a MASSEUR is male. Still “interesting” to you?

            “Pedantic” you call it? You think it takes some arcane and profound knowledge to discriminate between a masseur and a masseuse?

            In journalism, words are important. In communication words are important. Misuse of words makes one look foolish and communicates incorrectly. Mr. Root does himself no favors in misusing the word.

            The way we use words is a glimpse of the inner workings of our minds. Failures of clear expression go to failures in the logical and cognitive processes of the brain. We see it here every day in the rants of progressives.

    • TheOriginalDaveH

      And as Wayne pointed out — the good Black people who will suffer the inevitable resentment as a result of Obama’s racism.
      In fact, without Government meddling, I believe fully that the races would have gotten along decades ago. Government, by giving certain classes of people special protections, creates resentment among the unprotected classes which leads to more discrimination, not less.
      The only way we’re ever going to get back to a peaceful and prosperous society is by shrinking the size of Government dramatically. The Leaders are there to feather their own nests and they could care less if their programs cause more bad than good.

  • Jurgy

        Too bad Obama had to endure no such background check. It’s amusing that his contacts with Bill Ayers could have barred him from a security clearance in the military. And he ends up Commander in Chief.

      regarding Propping up a So called Democratically elected Government that

      was really a Dictatorship installing Oppressive policies against the

    A lot otf these black criminals are in prison because they chose the easiest way to live by killing , stealing, raping to get what they want. How could thes types who are too lazy to work for a living be productive. this is just another of the idiot Owebuttholes plan to sabotage and destroy america. How could we have been so ignorant to vote him in twice. Too bad they can’t have recall elections for presidents like they do with lesser polititions. Lets pass a law to do that too.

    • $8012302

      We already have the law the Constitution.
      There are two ways to recall a president.
      1. Our Congress draw up articles of impeachment charging him with treason and high crimes against the people of the Untied States to remove him. Our congress does not have the guts since the senate is as corrupt as he his.
      2. Two thirds or more of the states call a national convention and remove him by representative vote and proclamation. To get that many states to agree on anything would be impossible. The population within each state would have to take action to force their state to comply with their wishes if anything gets done.
      Alternative , socialism and slavery for the people. The law was put in place by Bush II, and reaffirmed by this congress “the Patriots Act”, This act is worded so poorly that any corrupt or vindictive president could use it to enslave America by intimidation of being put in jail indefinitely without being charges with a crime.

    There are many states that require background checks for particular occupations. This will conflict with those laws. I see lots of court challenges to this stupidity.

    Wayne says “We are letting down our heroes, the people who sacrifice selflessly for us”.
    They may indeed be sacrificing selflessly and thinking it is for us. But it isn’t. It is for the Crony Capitalists and the Leaders who always gain more Power, at the expense of our Freedom and our wealth, from military excursions around the globe.
    The Leaders have been playing us for fools since Abraham Lincoln. And getting away with it:

    We really have had only about 70 years of real Freedom between the American Revolution and Lincoln. That was a period fresh after our brave Forefathers risked and gave their lives to be Free. After they had died off, the people who never experienced the sacrifices necessary to remain Free became apathetic like people tend to do, and Government started growing and growing until it became the modern day Behemoth that it is now:

    This is not right. For Obama to say that businesses in the United States have to hire not just criminals, but black criminals without giving them a background check is wrong. He is not only a tyrant but a racist in that he wants all the black people to have the best jobs and be on top. There is no talk about former work experience, ability, how well they would do their job, etc. just as long as the only former convicts who get the jobs and are not tested as others are are black. That means those let out of prison and are given the background checks to see that they will not pilfer the company funds are the non-blacks and I doubt Obama was talking about the Latinos, Asians, or Native Americans. He meant the whites.

  • DavidL

    Let me see if I understand you today and in the past. You are appalled and angered that whites are being discriminated against, consider Mandela a terrorist because he resisted black racism and discrimination under Apartheid, want a compete background check for immigrants and for people (presumably not just blacks) seeking employment, but oppose any background check for people wanting to purchase a gun.

    You wildly exaggerate the cost of Obama’s trip to Africa (actually approximately $400,000 not 100 million), characterize it as if it were all his personal spending, and don’t mention the fact that W. Bush went to Africa twice and Laura five times The total Bush bills far exceeded the Obama bill. Where was your outrage over the far more expensive Bush trips?

    If the law prevents felons from being employed in certain occupations, as it does, and requires a background check for enforcement, you presumably don’t have a problem with that. But not all occupations are off limits to convicted felons. When an employer from a permissible occupation requires a background check just for the black applicant, you have a problem when someone calls that discrimination unfair.

    You are right about one thing. The public schools failed you.

    • TheOriginalDaveH

      DavidL says — “You wildly exaggerate the cost of Obama’s trip to Africa (actually approximately $400,000 not 100 million), characterize it as if it were all his personal spending, and don’t mention the fact that W. Bush went to Africa twice and Laura five times The total Bush bills far exceeded the Obama bill. Where was your outrage over the far more expensive Bush trips?”.
      Any references, David, or is that just conjecture?
      Only $400,000? Such a bargain. But not so, according to the Washington Times.
      What the Washington Times has to say about the expense of the trip:
      http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/23/costs-overshadowing-agenda-obama-heads-africa/
      And why does it matter what Bush did? Two wrongs still don’t make a right no matter how hard you Liberal Progressives try to make it so.
      Where was the outrage over Bush? Duh, he has been gone for 4 years now. Follow me on this, David — Obama is President now. Get it?

    • Frank Kahn

      The hourly operational cost of Airforce One is estimated at almost $200K, are you suggesting that this 747 is capable of Mach 10? It can make a round trip from Washington DC to Africa in 2 hours?

      The distance from Washington DC to Dakar, Senegal is about 4,000 miles. At a normal cruising speed of between 5 and 6 hundred miles an hour it would take between 7 and 8 hours to make a one way trip. That is 14 to 16 hours round trip. $400,000 / 14 is less than $29,000 an hour. Even considering this low number, that is the ability to employ 14 families for a year. If you use the more reasonable estimates of hourly cost, around $180,000 an hour the total cost of flight time is about 2.5 million. Or enough to give 84 families a year of employment. This part of the cost of the trip is just one thing. There is also the cost of presidential protection, which includes naval vessels on stand-by for disaster responses. Hotel accommodations, eating and ground transportation. While I am not able to calculate the true cost of the trip, I am sure that your meager $400,000 figure is not even close to the state that the ballpark is in. The point is not about whether Bush spent more, it is about Obama lying about how we need to tighten our belts, and do without, while he takes a multi-million dollar vacation to his home country.

      Mixing ideas and metaphors for lying will get you nowhere.

      A background check on an immigrant will determine their legitimacy, thus allowing for proper handling of their ability to remain or be deported. It will also allow employers the opportunity to avoid hiring illegal, and non tax paying people. This protects our citizens ability to have job opportunities and protects the nation from illegal invasion of undesirable aliens. This tool can be used to attain this goal.

      A criminal background check for employment serves, basically, the same idea. It allows employers the ability to screen out criminals who’s crimes would affect the companies ability to perform its functions without fear of damaging actions and lawsuits. It, like with aliens, has a definite goal that it can attain.

      Criminal background checks for gun purchases, has the stated goal of eliminating, or at least reducing, the occurrences of gun related violence. While, on the surface, this goal is something that the measure can attain, it is not just questionable, it is fatally flawed. Yes, a background check, for a gun purchase, will alert the seller to the fact that the person is not allowed ownership. This will preclude the possibility of the sale from that source. But, even though the purchase was thwarted, the intent to do violence with a gun was not. And, actually, the probability of the buyer wanting the weapon to commit a crime is not yet established. If there was, indeed, criminal violence intended for the weapon, the person will keep looking until they finally find a weapon for this use.

      So, in conclusion, we support the two types of background checks, that have the actual ability to attain the desired results, we do not support the one that is incapable of attaining anything even close to the desired outcome. Criminal background checks, for gun purchases, cannot, have not and never will be able to prevent violent gun crimes.

      And on your final two assertions, you appear to have been failed by your public school education. You seem to be reading things into these articles and responses that is not there. Nowhere in this article, or the following posts, was it ever stated that the president ordered that conduction of a criminal background check JUST BECAUSE THE APPLICANT WAS BLACK, be stopped. It was ordered that JUST BECAUSE THE APPLICANT IS BLACK, criminal background checks must be stopped. If you can’t see the difference, here it is.

      1. Conducting a criminal background check JUST BECAUSE a person is black is wrong.

      2. Conducting a criminal background check WHEN a person is black is wrong.

      In item 1, the employer is discriminating AGAINST the person because of race.

      In item 2, the government is discriminating FOR the person because of race.

    A bonafide U.S. citizen, be they black, white or whatever, who has paid back his or her debt to society, is deemed no longer a criminal.

    Anyone in Congress supporting amnesty for illegal aliens IS a criminal. The fact that they aren’t being prosecuted for their crimes doesn’t make them any less of a criminal, for a criminal is one who has committed a crime and not paid the price of punishment for it. See:
    http://www.justice.gov/usao/eousa/foia_reading_room/usam/title9/crm01907.htm

    I have no problem with hiring former felons who are bonafide U.S. citizens, for it makes recidivism less likely if they are gainfully employed.

    HOWEVER, Obama has been creating millions of jobs for FOREIGNERS. See:

Financially bankrupt without a means nor ability to pay our debts. We put our money out to support the world’s enemies and the world thumbs their nose at us politically. We are reducing our military to a pre WW-II posterior and are thought of as a weak defenseless 3rd world country with an inept leader who bows to socialist tyrants and terrorist chieftain’s. The men that gave their lives and their fortunes to free us from what we have again become would turn in the their graves in shame along with the past and modern day patriots that have died to maintain that freedom. Now!!!, our president has ordered the priority/ mandatory replacement of honest hard working citizens with convicted felons. I don’t think he has that authority without judicial coercion.

  • sunnynomore

    Obama brings out the worst in others. I am white and tend to take people overall at face value, although I have my personal opinion on various groups that define themselves by race. If a company does a background check on an individual, no matter what race they are and finds them to be a risk then they shouldn’t have to hire them. I don’t believe in affirmative action…..If more blacks have criminal records, it only means more of them have committed crimes.

  • Nadzieja Batki

    By statistics that have been put, Islam has the highest rate of “conversions” in the prison systems so if industries, restaurants, shops, offices, etc., are forced to employ these people you will be forcing the employers to walk in fear of offending the same and being dragged through the courts for perceived slights and offenses.

    By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the silent majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

    First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

    Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the black American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
    We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

    Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona, Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids ? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for black Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the black American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

    Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

    As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

    Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

    We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

    Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear !

    OK will you pass it on ?

    YES. I did but will you?

    Because I’m for a better America.

  • TheSilverRanger

    This does make a lot of sense. However, what about those who have left prison and want to turn their lives around? Do they not have the right and the opportunity to once again become a productive and functioning member of society? The reason most criminals tend to go back to crime is because no one is willing to give them a chance. I can understand not giving an identity thief or a convicted sex offender certain career fields; that’s logical and obvious. But still, what’s wrong with working at a Dollar General or a Target all the same, or even wanting to become a voice actor, etc.

    A lot of these companies that have employees at Target, for instance, have a lot of young snot nosed punks and brats who whine moan and complain about having to work stock or cashier at these places, yet many of these unemployed or underemployed ex-cons are more than willing to put their past behind them, having cleaned up their act, and do the work and be the very best at it. Sadly, a lot of managers don’t even want to BOTHER to give them a second look and go by the applicant’s criminal record. An ex-con gets turned down for job after job after job years after he gets out of prison, what’s he going to do? He’s probably going to wind up committing suicide, or punching someone in the face to go back to prison because he thinks he doesn’t have a future anymore; you think prison reforms people anymore? That ex-con would rather you just tell him that he should not ever have a normal life ever, and should stay behind bars, he would respect you more instead of giving him a song-and-dance of why you won’t hire him. Either these people have cleaned up their act and deserve to be given a chance, or they’re life long dirt-bags who should never be given a second look again; either we have a criminal justice system that allows people to pay their debt to society or we don’t.

    I can understand many of the obvious situations that Mr. Root points out, but if you’re not going to hire an ex-con because of your store’s “reputation” or your dignity, when you have these young punks joining Occupy, and making demands when they don’t want to make the effort to do any work, then you’re going to lose money and go out of business, because you don’t want to reconsider your hiring practices. Mr. Root, I hope you and many other business owners take this Rule of Acquisition to heart and mind.

    Rule of Acquisition #109: Dignity and an empty sack, is worth an empty sack.

    • TheOriginalDaveH

      So true, Ranger, but a Free Society wouldn’t tolerate Government making those choices for the employers.

      • TheSilverRanger

        Verily, you are correct. We have to deal with these choices when it comes to a free society. Though, I get this feeling, that in this 21st century, we’re going to have a very real version of the “Bell Riots,” and wind up forcing people to rethink government interference in their own lives in order to prevent the government from doing so , as well as foolish overly-emotional policies such as Megan’s Law, Gun Control, and DUI Checkpoints. In regards to all of this, remember an old proverb: “The road to you-know-where is paved with good intentions.

    • Frank Kahn

      What you are saying is true, a convict should be allowed opportunities to prove his / her value to a company beyond their past crimes. There is nothing wrong in this, as long as precautions are taken to eliminate risk triggers that would lead to re-offending. Actually, conviction records should be held to be private, only accessible by government and law enforcement unless or until a new crime is committed. On the surface, this is also a very good idea, because it removes the permanent persecution of the criminal. However, if a child molester gets a job at a school or day-care facility, because of this blindness, there is a possible problem. Same with rapists working in an environment that exposes them to their preferred victims. Or an Identity thief working with access to peoples personal financial information. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to create a system for preventing these situations without major government intrusion. So, we have an at least three pronged dilemma here. How to:

      1. protect the public from the ex-con while

      2. protecting the rights of the ex-con and

      3. preventing massive government intrusion.

      The current system is flawed, it accomplishes the first and third items but ignores the second. So, it needs some work to make it better.

      Now, with all that being said, you missed the point of the article. It is illuminating the fact that Obama wants us to forgive the BLACK ex-cons only. It is racial discrimination to check their criminal backgrounds but not if you do it to whites. It uses the fact that blacks are shown to be a larger percentage of convicted felons than whites. It fails to recognize that Mexicans are also a higher percentage than whites. So, are Mexicans white, just because they are not black? Are they less of a minority than blacks because of the color of their skin?

      It is, by definition, a racist act, to target a specific group for special harassment or privilege. The fact that the group, getting special privileges, is black instead of white does not change the fact that it is racially motivated. Color does not change the effects of the crime. Murder, committed by a black man, is the same crime as Murder committed by a white man.

      If Obama wants to do something to help black ex-cons, he should make it illegal to do background checks on all prospective employees. This will, without racism, give that higher percentage of black men a better chance at getting a job.

            Wow! That’s what I’m saying $40.00 to 50.00 per wk per person on food stamp. NO THANK YOU! I! D RATHER WORK BUT AT A DECENT JOB!
            This is all by design. By the obama regime design. He’s got his 40 some czars up there in the WHITEHOUSE running the country over congress & the senate. THEY ARE ALL DEVOUT COMMUNIST. They have to go. Then they are spending $100 of BILLIONS OF DOLLARS for green nothing energy & to set up obama no healthcare while we barely have enough to feed ourselves per month. Who can live on $130.00 per month for food. Then if you are getting unemployment what’s that $900.00 to 1200.00 per mth. REALLY! WELL PEOPLE WE NEED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE OUT IN OUR STREETS TO OUST OBAMA & HIS DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST BUDDIES.

            On top of it he takes a $100 Million dollar vacation to AFRICA. Promises them $7 billion dollars. It cost $24 MILLION FOR ALL THE AIR FORCE PLANES TO ESCORT HIM .

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            You bet, Louis. It isn’t Public Money. It is money taken from individual human beings against their will. You and your cohorts have no moral right to decide how other peoples’ money should be spent. If you want to decide who to contribute your own money to, then great. More Power to you. But keep your hands out of other peoples’ pockets. Neither you nor anybody else has a right to ride on other peoples’ unwilling shoulders.
            Putting aside the moral issues, which I believe are the most important, the reality is that economically the hand-outs don’t work anyway. When people are given something for nothing, then moral hazard is created. That is, they become less likely to make the efforts to care for themselves, and the victims of the theft also lose their incentive to care for themselves being deprived of the rewards for their effort. So the net result is less productivity (far less) and the economy dwindles to the point where everybody suffers.
            So there are two major flaws in your thinking:
            1) You have no right to give other peoples’ money away.
            2) In the long run, it is counterproductive to the kind of society you claim you advocate — that is, people suffering less.

          • Louis Lemieux

            The capitalist system is somewhat of a Ponzi scheme in the sense the more money you make the more your possibility of making more, concentrating the money supply. A monopoly game does give you an example of what goes on. We need some socialistic measures like graduated income tax to prevent this.
            Money is like one huge blanket over all of us. While each one of us is pulling on it the government sees to it that the blanket doesn’t end up mostly in one spot.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Capitalism is NOTHING like a Ponzi scheme. In a Ponzi scheme little if anything is produced. It is financed almost solely by tricking people into an investment which is returned if and only if people after them buy into the same scam.
            With Capitalism, real goods and services are provided to voluntary purchasers. If those goods and services are overpriced the consumers don’t buy them and the business fails. Without Capitalists actually improving natural resources into products that are desirable by consumers, the Socialists would have no wealth to steal.
            Socialism can only thrive as a parasite on Capitalism.

            Louis says — “We need some socialistic measures like graduated income tax to prevent this”.
            Prevent prosperity? Prevent the people who are actually investing their money in productive capital property and equipment? What kind of mind could actually believe that punishing the producers would lead to any kind of beneficial results?
            History is littered with the bodies of failed Socialist economies. Socialism is the “Ponzi Scheme” because it thrives only until they run out of other peoples’ money.

          • Louis Lemieux

            I said capitalism is SOMEWHAT of a Ponzi scheme.

            Money is just a convenient substitute for everything else out there. We cannot live today with the same amount of dollars we had 10, 20, much less 30 years ago. As GDP goes up so too must the money supply. What really counts is production, the growth of GDP and this is what the FED has accomplish since the Great Recession with stimulus measures. To control inflation as it sets in, the FED will have to scale back. The money the FED uses to buy bonds come fresh from the printing press and the FED can always sell those bonds back to the central bank to take money out of circulation.

          • Louis Lemieux

            Your logic doesn’t stand a very strong foothold. Norway is considered one of the most socialistic countries but in 2012 its GDP per capita was $99,558. while that of the U.S. was $49,965.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            There is no logic that can satisfy a Liberal Progressive because Liberal Progressives operate on a Belief System, like religion. That’s probably why Liberals disdain religious people. They don’t like the competition.
            Norway is NOT considered to be one of the most Socialist countries, and it’s GDP is NOT $99,558:
            http://www.heritage.org/index/country/norway
            Norway is ranked 16th in economic freedom out of 43 European countries.
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_(PPP)_per_capita

            Regardless of that, Louis, you have cherry-picked one Socialist country out of many that are far behind even the US which is now very Socialistic. You are mixing apples and oranges as they have a different geography and culture than we do.

          • Louis Lemieux

            GDP per capita is GDP divided by the total population and taxes are a lot higher in Norway than the U.S.

            This is classic. A guy who touts a system that is both an experiential failure and a logical failure has the nerve to talk about my logic.
            Wherever Socialism has been fully implemented, it has failed miserably. It fails when fully implemented because it doesn’t have Capitalism to carry it. The USSR, China, North Korea, Cuba, all failures because they allowed no Capitalism. Socialism is a parasitic system. Without a host it can’t survive.
            And it’s a logical failure. If there are no rewards for productivity, why would anybody stress themselves either physically or mentally? Why would anybody invest their money in productive capital equipment if the parasites were just going to take away the fruits of their investment?
            The only people who win with Socialism are the Leaders. The ignorant followers think they will win. The Leaders, after all, have told them so. The Leaders wouldn’t lie, would they? After the Leaders have taken full control, why in the world would they want some useless feeders sharing their spoils?

            Louis says — “We cannot live today with the same amount of dollars we had 10, 20, much less 30 years ago”.
            And why is that, Louis? The US experienced its greatest growth in the 1800s relative to other countries, and the value of the dollar actually increased by double. A dollar in 1900 could buy what it took $2 in 1800 to buy. That’s as it should be. As productivity increases, more goods are produced more cheaply, so we should be able to buy more goods with the same amount of money as time goes on. Instead since the advent of the Federal Reserve and Progressive policies our dollar has lost 22/23rds of its buying Power. By the Government’s own inflation calculator it takes $23.53 to buy the goods now that would have cost $1.00 in 1913.

            Being ignorant, Louis, is one thing, but being intentionally ignorant is repulsive. I’ve posted lots of links that explain the concept of money, so you have no excuse not to know better.

          • Louis Lemieux

            You’re quite naïve to think that the amount of dollars in 1800 would suffice today with a population that has doubled so many times since then! People would be poor today with so few dollars around!

            It never occurred to you that the value of the dollar cannot stand still in a moving market so a little inflation is better than deflation. So what if it takes $23.53 to buy the goods now that would have cost $1.00 in 1913 if salaries have more than kept pace with inflation. The problem with inflation is if it goes up too fast people and the markets have a hard time adjusting.

            It doesn’t matter how many dollars there are, numbnuts. When there are fewer dollars, the prices just get adjusted downward.
            In 1900 the M2 money supply was $6.6 Billion.
            In 2013 the M2 money supply was $10.5 Trillion. That’s 1600 times the size of the money supply in 1900. Was that due to population size as numbnuts might argue?
            In 1900 the population was 76.2 million.
            In 2013 the population is about 313 million. That’s an increase of 4 times. Let’s see 1600 times bigger money supply vs 4 times bigger population?

            Every bit of price inflation robs those with cash savings and those on fixed incomes, who earned those dollars and have every right in the world to save them and still have their buying power later on.

            “Study my links better”, numbnuts? It’s obvious that you didn’t read them at all, because you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. All I get from you is ignorant wishful Liberal Progressive hopes and dreams.

            If you did any reading at all instead of getting your information from the Propaganda channels, you would know that the first people to get the newly created money get to buy products at the current prices. Then as those products become more scarce, due to the people first in line with the new counterfeit money buying them, the people further down the line must pay higher prices thus being able to buy less with their saved money and fixed income.

            If I was as ignorant as you are, Louis, I’d be embarrassed to show my face on this board.

    Part One: The Declaration and the Constitution
    In this first lecture of the “Introduction to the Constitution” series, Dr. Larry Arnn, Hillsdale College President, argues that the American republic’s meaning and proper method of operation is found in two documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He introduces the two main principles of the Declaration–Nature and Equality–and explains how they are key to understanding the arrangements of government found in the Constitution.

    It infuriates me when Obama gives away billions of dollars, while my wife and I have to do without air conditioning, because we cannot afford to run it. At the same time, the drug dealing family living next door to us in a Section 8 house live with all the luxuries, including having parties for 40 to 50 people with all the beer and steaks they can consume. Obama’s myrmidons refuse to correct situations like this, because they might lose their bureaucratic job.

          No, southern governors in the 50’s who added the ‘battleflag’ to their state flags to show solidarity in segregation. Oh, yea, I see. There is nothing ‘racist’ in doing that. As well as using a symbol used by the slave owning southerners.

            Yes. The Democratic party in the south was mostly old southern White conservatives. However, the Republican party used to stand for the right of ‘free labor’. Until Ronald Reagan fired the PATCO strikers. And convinced everyone with ‘Vodoo Economics’ – that the only solution to every economic ill was tax cuts. Even though Reagan outspent every president before him – but it was on ‘national defense’ so it was OK.

            I think you need to take a contemporary American History course at your local community college. Because your ignorance on basic American history is more apparent in every post you make.

            Free Labor?
            You mean free to trespass? Free to harass good jobless people who would gladly take what the Unionists spurn? Free to harass customers of the company, thus effectively stealing from the company as well?
            You are simply advocating bully behavior, KGB, and at the same time judging others for the same. I believe that’s called hypocrisy.
            By the way, KGB, you’re misrepresenting the phrase “Free Labor”. Here is what it really meant:
            http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_free_labor_ideology

          • KG

            No, I meant it in the same spirit as what the ‘free labor’ ideals were in the past. When a non-union contractor hires illegal aliens to do work, and pays them ‘subsistence wages’, that is a form of ‘slavery’. The Davis-Bacon act, which requires government contractors to pay ‘prevailing wages’, was actually proposed by two Republican congressmen. It was to prevent low wage unqualified ‘cheap’ contractors from underbiding local contractors by importing cheap labor from the south. When someone is working for less than they should get, that is a form of abuse of labor (or in organized labor eyes ‘slavery’). It’s these workers that are building the schools for your children. Do you really enjoy the fact that untrained amateurs are building the buildings you and your family will use?

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Only one problem, lying Socialist Progressive — There were 4 states who fought for the North and had legalized slavery. In fact a 13th Amendment, which preceded the 13th Amendment which we now have, would have legalized slavery forever in the states:
            http://www.usavsus.info/usA–Original13thAmend.htm
            “Illinois, Lincoln’s home state, had ratified this proposed amendment before the Civil War broke out in 1861″.

            Lincoln himself thought that the blacks were inferior and he spent much of his life advocating to remove them from this country:
            http://mises.org/daily/973
            “Lincoln is on record opposing equality for blacks, and was a lifetime proponent recolonizing slaves back to Africa. This is beyond dispute, even if the Lincoln partisans don’t like to talk about it”.

          • KG

            As with all wars, the reasons are as varied as humans on the face of the earth. However, there is one aspect that is undeniable. This was really a war between two social systems. One has it’s roots in ancient Egypt, the other was a recent development. One had roots in owning humans as chattel, the other was ‘conceived in liberty’. Weather or not you believed in either system, the deferral of the slavery issue was going to be decided one day. And that day came on April 12, 1861, when Fort Sumpter was attacked by Southern rebels.

            The ‘legalization’ of slavery you speak of was really moot since the Constitution gave 3/5ths representation to the ‘other persons’ or slaves. And no law regulating slavery was to be voted on before 1808.

            The Constitution:
            Section. 9.The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.

            Thomas Jefferson, a slave holding ‘guru’ of personal freedom, was constantly trying to reconcile the two ideas. He was blinded to Americas true destiny – not pastoral and agrarian, but urban and industrial. The south was stuck in an old system that was doomed to failure anyway.

            Trying to ‘swiftboat’ Lincoln?

          • mtman2

            “Slavery was a monstrous injustice” -said Abraham Lincoln- also -“As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master.”

            I’m sorry, Lincoln was a superior intellect, understood the former slaves were not allowed to be educated-ie illegal to learn to read. He knew they’d have NO chance to be excepted’, or move forward’ in the south or anywhere for at least 100 years. He in his wisdom and mercy want former slaves to have their OWN nation and help them grow with OUR help to avoid these difficulties in a broken nation and a lawless expansion westward with “manifest-destiny” mentality of the time. The “Negro” of that day could not be in the top list of priority’s with all that was before the nation! Hello, =650,000+ men had just been killed with millions wounded{arms+legs sawed off-etc}, chaos wouldn’t describe Reconstruction, politics was a nightmare, loyalties were so skewed NOTHING was certain. Criminal activity was rampant as were Indian raids+uprisings! Lincoln WAS the stabilizing element in OUR equation, then he was assassinated and with him went all that might have happened for good. The men in multiple prison camps like Andersonville where the soldiers who weren’t starved to death by the 10,000 of thousands or died from dysentery, malaria, poisoning, typhus, small pox, infection and what ever other horror had to find their way home for recovery and become human again. WE talk about PTSD today, then the magnitude of the depth + breath of it is INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
            Moravia in Liberia on the West Africa coast was started in1822 by freedmen from America was proclaimed a Republic in 1847 has maintained close economic ties with the USA, joining the U.N. in 1945.

            Great black men of the decades following are to be numbered on one hand. Fredrick Douglas, highly educated could only do so much. Two – Booker T Washington and George Washington Carver, both geniuses, contributing to America and all mankind both scientifically and philosophically are examples of what education and disciplined determination could do.

            Whining about your father while YOU show up for 3 meals a day, with a roof over your thankless head from the rains and heat for cold while complaining for having to stack the wood or bringing it in for UR ‘slave-driving’ mother to cook + bake with, would land a foot right up UR A$$ and rightly so. Find something good to say about the assembling of ‘the meaning’ of OUR ideology as Americans.

    Here we are sitting on our butts whining about another lost right taken away by the Communist in the White House. I really wish Obama were White, he would have been removed from office three years ago and in prison for treason. Instead the left and the media are letting him destroy the Nation that millions of Americans have died to protect. The fact that they are helping him get away with all of this is proof of how racist the left is. Liberals can’t look at a person without seeing differences in Religion, Color, Sex, sexual preference, State, rich, poor, lazy, cheaters, smart, dumb and any other difference that can be found so they can give preference to one and penalize the other. Liberals love to rant about intolerance of the Right, when its liberals who lack tolerance toward anybody who doesn’t agree with them, there is do differing of opinions on the left, if so you’re out.

      Who would be removing Obama? Certainly not the Politicians. Obama is just the tip of the Big Government iceberg. Republicans and Democrats have been setting this stage for over 100 years.

Their has to be something we can do.

        Dear IBN,

        First one would have to firmly believe that the election was not slanted / rigged to believe that Barack O’Bama was elected by the people of this nation.

        From the numbers posted from each state one should question just how much { jerry mandering } let alone outright fraud was committed. From – 1861 – 1871 – 2012.

        But then again one also must keep in mind first and foremost is that we don’t have a Government, {what we have is a Corporation known as the United States} that resides within the Illegal “City State of the District of Columbia.”

        Until the American people understand what was done all those years ago, the problems we face today can never be repaired.

        As in if you have a flat tire, replacing the motor will fail every time in fixing the flat tire.

        So my good people, when will you open your eyes to what’s really broken?

        When you ask for redress for the overt as well covert fraud that has taken place over the last 150 years? The word is TREASON, the redress / remedy has been clearly written with the Document’s the founders penned.

        Peace and Love.

      We continue to fiddle as “Rome” burns. All we can do is talk in blogs like this while the country is being destroyed without any effective resistance. A conservative constitutional convention needs to be convened to come up with ideas and decisions about effective actions that can be taken by a patriotic minority that will have some real results.

      • TheOriginalDaveH

        Before resistance must come knowledge. That’s why Personal Liberty is here.

        • RO ND

          The influence of a blog like this is negligible on the voting masses. More knowledge (euphemism for more “preaching to the choir”) is just killing time. A liberal victory in the House a year from November will spell the end of the country as the Founders envisioned it. A Republican victory will only slow the decline. A strategy of “educating the masses” will never happen if you understand who the “masses” are.

            The “masses” are brainwashed low-informed populace.

            How do you think, WHY Liberals HIJACKED the Education industry?

            The Kommunists/Fascists/Progressives/Liberals/ Democrats understand how to “educate” their Serfs/Slaves:

            “Give me a child and I’ll shape him into anything.” — B. F. Skinner, Jewish psychologist and pioneer of behaviorism

            “…EDUCATION SHOULD AIM AT DESTROYING FREE WILL, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be INCAPABLE, throughout the rest of their lives, of
            thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished” — Johann Gottlieb Fichte, German philosopher

            “…modern methods of PROPAGANDA. Of these THE MOST INFLUENTIAL is what is called EDUCATION … Where ALL CHILDREN go to school, and ALL SCHOOLS are CONTROLLED BY THE GOVERNMENT, the authorities can CLOSE THE MINDS OF THE YOUNG TO EVERYTHING CONTRARY TO OFFICIAL ORTHODOXY … The populace WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO KNOW how its convictions were generated.” — Bertrand Russell, The
            Impact of Science on Society

            Democrats/Liberals HATE Home-Schooling and they are against of the School Choice vouchers for the Privet & Christian Schools.

            Barry the Deceiver, in his State of the Union Address on January 24, 2012 said:

            “We also know that when students don’t walk away from their education, more of them walk the stage to get their diploma. When students are NOT ALLOWED TO DROP OUT, they do better. So TONIGHT, I AM PROPOSING that every state — EVERY STATE — REQUIRES THAT ALL STUDENTS STAY IN HIGH SCHOOL UNTIL THEY graduate or TURN 18.” (Democrats Applauded )

            What it tells you? He is taking the ideas from the real ABSOLUTE AUTOCRATS.

            Barry O’Liar is categorically against School Choice, Home-Schooling, Privet and Christian Schools, but he did not send his daughters to the Public School, but Privet.

      I’ve read that the Democrats set up the perfect situation for their candidate. Since he isn’t really the president (because he is, as they knew all along, ineligible), he can’t be impeached.

      The Republicans signed a settlement agreement after a lawsuit 31 years ago, that prevents them from addressing or investigating Democrat election fraud. This means that they cannot address Obama’s ineligibility (because running him as a candidate was Democrat election fraud).

      The Democrats have built themselves an unassailable castle, it seems, with their usual dishonest (and worse) methods.

  • gail2011

    I have a reply as to, do not say what you can’t finish whiteless man. Whatever that means. What I can say that in the year of 2013 fifty some years after the civil rights act that white people especially the REPUBLICAN PARTY signed into law. Here we are acting like nothing has happened or changed. We have a group of STILL VERY RACIST AFRICAN AMERICANS & THE LIBERAL LEFTIST PARTY MEDIA RAMPING UP RACISM & you have the truth.
    The truth with what’s really going on in THE BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITY. The black Americans are those that believe as did Martin Luther King believed. That we all need to judge people on the content of your character not the color of your skin.

    TODAY we have a totally different society then before the CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1964.
    TODAY we have a black president (voted in by white people too) we have a black attorney general, we have black mayors & governors, we have black congress & senators, we have black entertainers & radio hosts, Doctors, lawyers, professors you name it we have it. Why do we have all this? Well because real racism is DEAD. RACISM HAS LONG BEEN DEAD. The racism we knew of back before the Civil Rights Act is gone PRAISE GOD & it’s been gone. Five generations later racism exists only in the minds of radical leaders in the LIBERAL LEFTIST COMMUNIST COMMUNITY.

    Black Americans should be HIGHLY insulted that they have been shunned by the small amount of those in the African American Community. Black Americans are known to the African American Community as the UNCLE TOMS, THE NON IMPORTANT BLACKS. This of of course is the ones keeping racism alive. NO ONE IS SITTING IN THE BACK OF THE BUS ANYMORE. Today a BLACK AMERICAN can be or do anything a white person can do if they want to. I say to you there is a split with the black race & that’s among yourselves. You have the Black American today that’s successful. That’s well spoken, that loves their families that want to be good citizens, that are Christians, that do well at school & are polite caring loving people to all. These are people that are AMERICANS FIRST . Then you have the AFRICAN AMERICAN. That wants to blame white America for everything & anything that happens to them. They listen to these racist leaders that call ALL WHITE PEOPLE F____KING CRACKERS. These are the mobs that riot, attack random white people, that aren’t very will educated, that are rude & foul mouthed. These are the ones that vow to kill all white people & their babies. These are the ones that follow the black panthers with their racial slurs, that promote the welfare & food stamp programs generation after generation. That preach hate & devision at the pulpit.
    These are the ones that need to keep you as the under class but are replacing you with a new under class called the ILLEGAL ALIGN/ HISPANIC COMMUNITY.
    RACISM IS VERY SERIOUS TO ME. It is not a person making a comment it is a type of presecution. It refuses to allow a class of people the freedom to do better in life. It divides & destroys your dreams.

    We are all GOD’S CHILDREN NO MATTER WHAT COLOR. If I look at what is going on in America I see that we all have the right to do what we want to do to better ourselves. NO ONE IS MADE TO SIT AT THE BACK OF THE BUS except you. The social injustices right now in America is this government that’s done everything it can do to KEEP US ALL DOWN BLACK OR WHITE. They have destroyed jobs for all of America. They have made the economy dismal with their policies and they want you to believe it’s the white persons fault.
    I SAY TO YOU THERE ARE 90 MILLION PEOPLE OUT O
    F WORK & OVER 50 MILLION ON FOODS STAMPS WITH NO BRIGHTER FUTURE AHEAD OF US.
    This government wants us all tied up on racism, homosexuals fighting against Christians, guns, marriage, healthcare anything but looking at FREEDOM, JOBS & THE ECONOMY.

      ABSOLUTELY- Spot on, with the decent lay out the situation deserves!

      Only the Democrat Obama-bots have NO real values and will do anything, use anybody for political power OVER the very decent people that really do believe in the miracle that is America.

      What people have forgotten is that this same country was and still is a gift from the Wisdom+ Faith of OUR Founders from mankinds long dark history past. That same incredible Wisdom + Faith is still with us and warned us of all these things the Dems have and are pulling to eventually completely undermine the Declaration/Constitution/Bill of Rights and replace them with their version the Socialist “Bill of Rights”, (-Equal Misery + Social Justice for All-)…

      The Constitution-say’s -Congress SHALL NOT infringe,disparage, prohibit or deprive…Does it sound like the Founders trusted government? Yet WE do??!!

      Charles Montesquieu-1748 the Founders mentor said-
      “In a Republic governments, men are all equal, equal they are also in despotic governments. In the former, because they are everything, In the latter, because they are nothing.”
      To the Liberals WE and what WE think means nothing, the sooner they can MAKE us nothing the better! Their anti-America as Founded and anti-Christian mentality is evident in the hatred toward both, in EVERYTHING they do. It should be obvious!

        “Well”, a big-C little-l = Conservative/libertarian would do nicely.
        With a – Allan West, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Mike Lee, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin. Nikki Haley,Rick Perry, Michele Bachman, Susan Martinez – combination!!!

    • mtman2

      No WE are giving them a shot, of Foundational TEA Wisdom! Or else it’s the the 2nd fiddle repubs playing catchup with the highly deceptive, underhanded and manipulative Left; to “reach across the aisle” AGAIN=not!

    He has done so much s..t to this country that it will never be reversed,

    • mtman2

      “Well”, truthfully he has started the slow awakening of the “silent majority”! The one that allowed 100 years of the Liberal/Progressive march over OUR Foundations. Seems everyone assumed only cream floats. BHO is only the floating “cherry” on top.

    WOW… yet another insane example of the abusive over regulation that Obama is famous for.

    How about the EEOC applies these rules to the Secret Service, White House Staff, and Obama’s Cabinet members – who are all currently subject to strict criminal background checks Oh I forgot… Obama’s way is punish the private sector yet again with another one of his absurd Social Justice experiments.

    I hope BMW and Dollar General take the EEOC all the way to the Supreme Court and win. Last time I checked Convicted Criminals (Black or White) were not a protected class.

      Only Steven King or better yet Rod Serling could make all this stuff up! Those complicit must be drinking “special-water” or kool-aid!

    It’s gonna be over soon, I do believe. Keep the Faith and KNOW the one true GOD. HE will be our protector

    • mtman2

      Nice thought but the end will be quite protracted and …”no man knows the day or the hour”!

      • deltamary

        True but HE did give us signs

        • mtman2

          He sure did, but it’s not gonna be pretty, and is why His return will be to spare a remainder! Your right though keeping the Faith + being Faithful is prerequisite for the “Bride”.

  • Testorini

    HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE HE GETS HIRED AFTER HIS LAST TERM.

    • mtman2

      He’s on George Soros’s payrole now already!

    Get a life folks – background checks are OK – conviction record = no hire = OK
    simply an arrest record = not ok.

    Of course he would be for hiring black criminals. It takes one to know one and it seems he knows them all!! Just look at the government and what they are doing! It is criminal!

    • mtman2

      “Well”, with Frank Marshall Davis for a mentor(or-more), what would U expect?!!

  • Timothy Sullivan

    Barack Obama and Eric Holder: 2 high profile black criminals.

    • mtman2

      Yes and protected by low profile criminals in the media, covering everything up while blowing smoke over the whole scenario and attacking any opposition/lighting fires to keep attention away from the Thief n Chief + his top henchman.

  • mtman2

    “INTELLIGENT LIBERAL” is the ultimate-oxymoron!
