Voting – Psychology of the “Bandwagon” effect
The Psychology of “Bandwagon effect” relates, sometimes, in Voting too. You’ve all understood this to some degree, even if you hadn’t thought about it consciously. You’ve seen it in some Presidential Races where the Voting in the Eastern States; a Landslide effect seems to be occurring, which then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, some would argue this explains Reagan’s landslides but it goes both ways; which | Read More »

Senator Biden: indecisive voters just fighting off their latent racism.
No, it’s not a direct quote. If it was a direct quote, it would have been five paragraphs long. OK, OK mean of me. He’s gotten much better; now it only takes Biden two paragraphs to get to the point. Biden: Voters “having a difficult time” electing first African American president As Election Day looms just over two weeks away, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said | Read More »
Big Surprise! McCain’s criticism of Obama’s tax plan is racist!
According to Headline News, the Obama campaign’s latest defense against McCain’s charge that Obama’s tax plan is “welfare” is that this line of attack is racist.Looking down from Heaven (or more likely up from another place), even Johnny Cochrane must be impressed with this one.
Jesse Jackson Speaks!
Jesse Jackson recently gave an interview with the New York Post. While everyone seems to be focusing on the parts of the interview that deal with Israel, I think the reverend’s comments on race and society are far more illuminating:
Apparently, A Halloween display with KKK McCain chasing Barack Obama is “friendly”…
Not my choice of word: the local NAACP’s. Via AoSHQ: Halloween display aims for ‘shock value’ CATHARINE — Ron Havens has a reputation for provocative Halloween displays that reflect his strong political views. But even Havens was pretty sure his latest effort was over the top. That didn’t stop him from setting it up in plain sight anyway. Havens, who lives on Schuyler County Route | Read More »
Racism in reverse
“White guilt” as brought up by a conservitive talk show host on Fox News. As he explained the way the people over 60 look at the race issue compared to people under 30. I, being almost 50,look at this guilt as racism in reverse. Because to look at a person of any color and see them different,in any way is racism. We “all” are created | Read More »
AP probably thinks this will *help*.
How could we possibly ignore “El Presidente”? HAVANA (AP) — Fidel Castro says a “profound racism” in the United States will stop millions from voting for Barack Obama in next month’s presidential election. Read the article here.h/t to PageTurner at Lucianne.comSo this is where the Obama camp has been getting their talking points from. Now I get it! “We must hate — hatred is the | Read More »
Barack Obama, Race-Baiter.
Or are your internal polls telling you something?H/T Hot AirSkip to the end, where he informs the audience that they will not be “hoodwinked” or “bamboozled.” Sound familiar? Of course it does: he pulled the same trick against Hillary Clinton in South Carolina, as well-known VRWC rag The New Republic reported at the time: His use of the phrase is resonant. It comes from a | Read More »
A Better America
My father was a career officer in the Air Force, and a racist. He passed his views onto me, so that when I was in kindergarten and met my first black classmate, I belittled him as inferior because he was black. Once.
Shouldn’t we be outraged?
Here’s Peter Beinart’s column in Time, and it’s damn insulting. Writes Beinart: “[T]he McCain campaign’s strategy against Obama is actually kind of shocking. For years, the recipe for injecting race into a political campaign has been clear. … In the past, Republicans often used race to make their opponents seem anti-white. In 2008, with their incessant talk about who loves their country and who doesn’t, | Read More »
The Messiah Is Merely A Chicago Style Politican
The curtain has drawn on the third act of this tragedy. Liberal America for years had sought ways of overcoming the guilt of slavery while extending its agenda into the mainstream of America. Their message: Redistribute the wealth of this economy, guarantee the choices–good and poor–of every American, encourage class warfare through governance by the worker and submission by the rich and the elimination of | Read More »

Notice the standing ovation! Mr. Obama
Weighing in on Racism
I often contemplate certain words and their meaning, and I am often taken aback by how loosely or carelessly some words are used today. Racism is such a word, and I have never in my life ever taken the word lightly or its meaning. Too many people have suffered terrible things because of it. It is a terrible word, an awful word, a word that | Read More »
The Debate- The Final Question…
2nd Presidential DebateThe last question of the debate, the gift question, a better question couldn’t have been sent by Ann Coulter herself; the lead in to the TELL ALL- McCain didn’t take the opportunity to close the deal! Wish I had the opportunity to “pinch hit” for him- it could have gone like this…..The last question. “What don’t you know, and how to correct it?”Good | Read More »
I Want To Vote For A Black Man!
I want to vote for a black man. I would love to vote for a woman for that matter. Or a Jew. Or a paraplegic. In fact, I’d really like to vote for a wheelchair-bound Jewish black woman. That would pretty much forever eliminate this ridiculous argument that America, as a whole, discriminates on the basis of skin color, sex, religion, or physical abilities.I want | Read More »
