If he was Sicilian, Hawaiian, Chinese Mexican Native American , Irish before 1963- he would feel this way also .

Oh brother!! I can see you are too far gone to see any value in the sacrifices our forefathers made to create the greatest nation know to the human species. Never in time have so many humans had such wealth and comfort all of which people like you take for granted. That is why I suggest you travel and immerse yourself in another culture. You will quickly see how blessed you really are.

You live in an unrealistic dream world if you think unfairness to the weak doesn't happen. In fact we White Americans and Europeans are the ONLY people in history that have tried to correct past oppression.

If you live long enough, the way the balance of power is changing you will NOT see that compassion returned to you or your people in the future.

Good luck to you, its a shame you hate your heritage, but hey; lions eat their own too.

I started reading this thread but stopped after deterioration set in.

I wouldn't say the ad is overtly racist but subliminally it is -- as someone pointed out, the only African-American in the commercial is the one who says the candidate looks good while the rest make stinging indictments (put quotes around the previous 2 words)... the implications are patently racist.  Besides that, though, it's like any other smear-job.  This is somewhat like the ad Dubyah Sr. ran in 1992 (??) with the Black pardoned convict (Wille someone) -- race was not mentioned but it was obviously geared toward white voters to stimulate fear of Blacks.

The ad is just another of thousands of ads run by politicians (of both parties although Republicans are more prone) that blow smoke in voters' faces and address nothing of importance.   

I have to say during large election periods I feel most vindicated about having stopped watching TV in 1998.  With any luck the youtube ad will be the only political commercial I see this year.   

Last but not least I agree with fearless about being tired of people talking about "races" since genetics shows us there are no such things.   Unfortunately the word hasn't made it to most people (at least it seems not to have) so in order to discuss an important topic I submit to the status quo and add the other 2 cents whenever I can.

I love when libs when bring up the Willie Horton ad. What a bunch of crap. Willie Horton was a murderer who was released on Dukakis(the midget in the tank)weekend furlough program, while on his weekend vaca he killed a bunch of people.  The ad had nothing to do with white or black or racism unless you were a dukasis supporter. Should they have used a white person to play Willie Horton? The ad was about Dukakis letting dangerous criminals back into society.
The very best fact about the willie horton ad is it was originally used against dukasis in the democratic primary by that sleazeball cumo or gore(or some other dem). No racism claims then.
When confronted with the truth Libs and Dems always use the race card, its all they have. How sad.

Don't worry everyone I think we will be okay. Heck, you can't turn on the news or pick up a paper without a Republican being outed these days. I just might have to switch parties...there are more homo's in the GOP than at a tea-dance in South Beach...and you know queens, they can't keep secrets. I can't wait for Jeff Gannon to publish his memoirs. Remember him? The gay hustler with fake press credentials and White House access. Don't believe ol' Doxie...google Jeff Gannon and see what you come up with. Man, the Grand Ol' Perverts are certainly heavy into homoeroticism...too bad they are not cute. I am not surprised...a recent study released by the Cato Institute suggests that conservative is just another name for repressed homosexuality.

Iraq, Abu Ghraib, Halliburton, Bob Ney, Randy "Duke" Cunningham, Mark Foley, Jack Abramoff, Katrina, deficits, 9/11, underfunding "no child left behind," North Korean nukes, Iranian nukes, where's Osama, tax breaks, Armstrong Williams, missing billions, pork, ....and it is all we have...how sad. My bad...Darfur.

p.s.daily Republican perverts

it seems the groupthat should be really upset at this ad is topless dancers and strippers.I didnt think she looked that bad, not up to Houston standards, but Texas does have themost beautiful women in the world. 
Yes, it appears the Dems will take back both houses and itshould provide some really good humor and entertainment for the next few years.
I love the libs constant rant against Haliburton. HAL has been used by every administration forthe last 60 years on a no bid basis  and bid basis. Clinton usedHALon a no bid basis in his wars. No other company has the ability to go anywhere in the world on a moments notice and provide the services that they do. Just readtodays paper with huge HAL headline. It seems that Dems are pissed HAL submitted some records in adobe acrobat rather than xcell spreadsheet.  This is what industry will have to look forward tothenext several years.
Waxman? A slimeball of moronic proportions.  Dingell on Energy? Has anyone ever investigated howmuch Dingell got paid under the table in the 70s? Energy price regulation meant to buy votes from idiots who think big oil controls the price of oil made middlemen billions and onlyone person wentto jail.  I cant wait.

Luckily the country will once again be saved by homosexuals. According to Focus On The Family the GOP is controlled by a secret, gay, cabal firmly entrenched in the bowels (no pun intended) of the Republican party. It is well known inside the beltway that gays have unlimited access to the seats of power...or at least to their seats. We won't know until Jeff Gannon writes his tell-all book. They have your children, they want your party.

We do know the RNC is a regular recipient of political contributions from Nicholas T. Boyias, the owner and CEO of Marina Pacific Distributors, one of the largest producers and distributors of gay porn in the U.S.A...not that there is anything wrong with that.

It is a historical fact that Lincoln was gay, and study after study proves the majority of Republicans are repressed homosexuals. Repressed Republican homosexuals are reduced to flights of fancy according to data provided by the Pew Institute. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

This isn't any different than one of your normal posts except the syntax is better.  Am I missing something?

If the moderators stepped in every time we started batting at each other with wilted lilies they'd have no lives outside of the forums.  Not all of the moderators are paid (at least I know one very hard-working one who does this work gratis) and there are basically two who do the bulk of the moderating.  If someone is concerned that a thread has become a flame war or inappropriate s/he should use the "report to moderator" button.
