I knew this was coming, but I had not heard Cain speaking with such specifics yet, and I had not heard him tie it in so closely with blacks as yet either. Wow, that was pretty clear though, wasn’t it? Did the Cain quote from CNN (above) come out today? Thanks.
The problem with the link you posted is the author distorts the Fair Tax while creating something that doesnt exist for the 999 plan. In the Fair Tax, the prebate is given to everyone, not just low income. So in a large sense, the prebate is not like the 999 empowerment zone. Secondly, no where on Cain’s website for the 999 plan does it say the empowerment zones are temporary. Yet the author’s entire point is that the zones are temporary.
And I say that while liking Cain for the most part.
I wonder if anyone has asked Cain if he voted for Obama or McCain? I never would have considered anything else until now. I want to know from his own mouth. As a Baptist Minister I will take his word for it.
This is straight off the church website that Cain is a minister at. It's his pastor and good friends words. Antioch Baptist Church North.
Thanks normy! I missed that one, but I’m glad to hear we will see what is going on with those empowerment zones here soon. It does sound like he wants to get the black vote. Did you know that there are Hispanic empowerment zones as well? I don’t know if Cain will be addressing those too... there are some already in place with services and community organizers so I guess they will probably be getting some of the entitlements too, but it does sound like Cain is more focusing on the black urban neighborhoods. Thanks for getting back with me on that question!
Its not enough to talk about what black folks ought to do, Alexander once said. We have to also look at what government is not doing to ensure fairness and equal opportunity. (Mr. Cain’s Antioch Baptist Church North website)
Herman Cain: The role of government, in my view, is to maintain an equal balanced playing field for the citizens and for our society. Not to throw it out of balance.

I posted the story about the none well drilling happening in Texas yesterday. It was dated in may, sorry you missed it. I believe they are planning on drilling 3000 new non wells. They will be called non wells ,because the number of wells drilled in the last two years never happened, to the drill here drill now crowd, I think the number is around 10,000 new non drilled wells maybe a few more.
25 out of how many thousand????
Now it makes more sense.
We’ve drilled 9 non wells in the last 3 years, the last one came in at close to 400 barrels a day. I had Navajo jumping backwards trying to keep up with production. Navajo is now backlogged 98 pickups and Pecos is backlogged 65 due to all the nondrilling going on in this area. We need more drivers and transports big time! We should TD the next one in a couple of weeks. My battery’s on the big ranch are getting full and I may have to shut in a few wells until they can catch up.
Your information is outdated. Perry called two special sessions of the legislature and they closed the gap and balanced the budget by cutting spending and moving a few things around. What did the other states do?
Here's a report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas that describes the problems Texas will face in coming years. In 1980 there were approximately three Anglos for every Hispanic in Texas. By 2020 Hispanics will be the majority. By 2040 70% of children under 5 in Texas will be Hispanic. Texas, like Perry, will be toast:
The entire country is being overrun, not just Texas, and it is the responsibility of the federal government to control the borders rather than the individual states. Regardless, Texas has spent more than $400 million of its own money on the border and has allocated resources from the Texas Department of Public Safety (state troopers), the Texas National Guard, the Texas Rangers, and others, to try to secure the 1200 mile border it shares with Mexico.
Instead of the federal government doing its job they seem to be supporting the invasion. As evidence I offer their lack of effort and Operation Fast and Furious.
The cities with the highest Hispanic populations are Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago. Yes, Chicago and as I said, they are all over.
Get your facts before you propagandize in your eagerness to bash Perry.
” As for the heartless comment, I have never seen so many supposed conservatives running around on emotion saying I wont vote for him because he called me a name.
It is unbelievable how easily offended some people are by what was a pretty Christian ,
although clumsy statement by Perry.
Which actually had to do with children and not their illegal parents.
” But if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought
there by no fault of their own,
I don’t think you have a heart. “
All taxpayers pay to educate the children of illegals from K-12.
But, when a small , small percentage then try and pay for their college education ,
all heck breaks loose.
In addition , the kids are trying to correct the wrong done to them by their parents
by getting in line
and becoming US citizens.
Or joining the military and serving their country.
This issue has been demagogued by some on the right
in a way that would make Barry proud.
