I seriously doubt if robinson didn't know the meaning of such a word. After all, she knew how to use it in a sentence. She just played dumb because she was called out. These people say what they mean and mean what they say, then they try to run and hide behind a cloak of ignorance.

I think the joke was funny too, the time and place were all wrong.

But journalists cannot pick and choose

Unfortunately, journalists do too often pick and choose. Another place, different characters, there would have been no hesitation. The story would have run from morning to night, and seemingly endless days.

In parts of the study, it does seem that when they didn't get the answers they wanted they came up with their own, like responders were " just afraid to say t.his or that."

If they're not willing to listen or are filling in the blank spaces with their own answers, then the study is being manipulated and is already flawed.

JOHN BERGEN said: Republicans aren't racist

But their core beliefs are. Today's conservative Republicans aren't the party of Lincoln or Roosevelt. The term conservative seems to have become their code word for I'm a racist and proud of it. They give the impression of being a bunch of bitter old white men out for revenge, and who hate anyone and everyone but the white evangelical male. They'd eat both Lincoln And Roosevelt alive and spit out their bones. Neither does having blacks who are Republicans indictive of their core beliefs. Blacks aren't a monolithic group, who think, breathe and move in unison. They're as diverse a group as whites and any racial groups are. Their own words have been their undoing, and have given an insight into who they are and their true belief system.

Seems like Romney and his clan conveniently left out the rest of a 14 year old speech the president made when he was an Illinois State Senator and was responding to a question. He wasn't talking about redistributing wealth, but resources to make state and city government more efficient, giving everyone a fair shot.

According to Washington Post, here's the part Romney and clan are circulating:

"I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure that everybody's got a shot," Obama is heard saying on the clip, which then abruptly ends.

Here's the last line of that 14 year old speech Romney and gang left out:

"How do we pool resources at the same time as we decentralize delivery systems in ways that both foster competition, can work in the marketplace, and can foster innovation at the local level and can be tailored to particular communities,"

The Romney Cult believe and fall in line. (redistributing your line-back-atcha LOL)

The edit of the last line out of the clip earned Romney and the Republican National Committee a "four pinocchios" rating by fact checkers at the Washington Post

So, even Romney isn't going to vote for Romney? Like more than 7,000 of the richest of the rich, Romney doesn't pay any income tax either. Just another wealthy moocher. Suckling off federal, state and local government. 44 million federal bailout.

Worldwide Grinding Systems, renamed GS Technologies of Kansas City after Bain Capitol took over the company.

[In October 1993] Bain and its partners decided to buy the mill for $75 million. Bain put up about $8 million to gain majority control of the company, renamed GS Technologies Inc....Bain got its money back quickly. The new company issued $125 million in bonds and paid Bain a $36.1 million dividend in 1994.

Pretty sweet. Over the next few months, Bain piled on more and more debt, totalling $378 million by 1995. But they managed the plant poorly and couldn't compete with cheap Asian imports

GS Industries declared bankruptcy on February 7, 2001, and said it would shut down the Kansas City plant, eliminating 750 jobs. In a press release, the company said the bankruptcy was triggered in part by "the critical need to restructure the company's liabilities."

Workers soon found out what that meant. In April, GS said it was shedding the guarantees it had promised its workers in the event of a plant closure....The U.S. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp, which insures company retirement plans, determined in 2002 that GS had underfunded its pension by $44 million. The federal agency, funded by corporate levies, stepped in to cover the basic pension payments, but not the supplement the union had negotiated as a hedge against the plant's closure.

I'm not at all sure what Bebb has and the 10TH District law enforcement has done that most all agencies haven't? I think the only reason this caught the attention and got exposure is because other cops complained. I don't think it would have gone anywhere if the average citizen had complained.

That maybe another source of Akin's conclusion on rape, but wilke is not his spiritual mentor from what I've been told. just do a search on akin rape and spiritual mentor. You should recognize the individual immediately.
