Simply FAB-u-lus. One of the “just-us” brothers giving someone who (if he ever actually attended college, how would we know?) skipped not only his math, science and constitution classes but also missed his Econ 101 as well. The fact that anyone, let alone hussein, would value al (not so)sharpton’s opinion is (or would be)laughable if it wasn’t so pathetic. When is he gonna coversate with the other half of the “just-us” brothers? Or is jesuh too busy figuring how to get juniors sentence reduced. “I tol yu boy. It’s fine to do it but, DON’T get caught!”

This story reminds of the times Bush met with “White Leaders” in attempts to help them achieve a larger slice of the “American Pie”.

Sure he did. s/

Or Thomas Sowell, another ECONOMIST? After his "meeting" with Dr. Ben Carson, he was afraid of anyone else with actual accomplishments having nothing to do with skin color.

Yup. All community problems can be solved with more walk’in ‘round money.

I was impressed with Herman Cain’s debut on the Hannity show. He went up against Juan Williams. Juan was out of his league and he knew it.

Since Western man in America, due to some sort of spasm, elected one of these poor souls as their chief magistrate it is hardly fair to criticise their giving each other advice on how to seize centuries of accumulated wealth. Due to their office holding they actually think they are able to advise and govern. Reality is dictating otherwise.

Gives new meaning to the term "circle jerk".

middle class are those on food stamps and other forms of welfare.

They are only interested in expanding governmental dependency.
