“Besides being a depraved degenerate, where Bashir fails is that he makes the ludicrous (and somewhat racist) assumption that the word "slavery" is the sole provenance of African-Americans.
Slavery has been around a whole lot longer than African-Americans were brought to North America. Slavery was practiced by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, African tribes, Chinese, and Native Americans long before the Europeans came to America. Slavery was the fate of conquered peoples, probably dating back to cave men. It describes a human condition which encompasses humans "owning" other humans for their labor, as well as similar contexts of humans "enslaved" to drugs or alcohol or even debt. If America continues as a debtor nation, then the American people will be enslaved to some greater or lesser degree by that debt.
Bashir is so desperately and overwhelmingly racist that he is blinded and enslaved by his very own racism.”

“The form of modern day slavery experienced by Africans in this country was the most brutal in the history of man kind. The abolishment on paper did not stop the practice. It has become so institutionalized over 100 yrs. has passed and the evidence can be seen of the proliferation in any Bagger rally!”

Martel LXIV on Nov 19, 2013 at 13:16:02

“It's abundantly clear from your little diatribe that YOU are so desperately and overwhelmingly racist that you're blinded and enslaved by your very own racism.

But, sure, slavery is good. Everybody does it. Why should 'African-Americans' be 'special', right? After all, northern europeans just had slaves because it was 'customary' in the middle ages and even though it had more or less fallen out of favor among northern europeans by the beginning of the 18th century, American colonists needed people to get the work done so they could spend their time killing the native Americans and driving them off the land. Morality, after all, is in the eye of the beholder and the beholders can therefore enforce whatever moral code they choose, no matter how murderous it is, right? So, yeah, it's nice that you think that morality is situational and nothing more than a matter of expedience...and FREEDOM!

(FYI: 'Freedom', when it comes at the expense of those who don't have it, or even of those who have only SOME of it, is utterly immoral and absolutely unacceptable as well as being unquestionably untenable in any society which intends to preserve itself.)”

goodgolf on Nov 19, 2013 at 13:00:40

“An incredibly attempt at conflating the construct of that horrible institution that for eternity will be a scourge on the history of this country...regardless of your convoluted offerings.

Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans have absolutely zero to do with slavery in America. And the Africans brought to this country were not the result of the "fate of a conquered people"...they were not the spoils of war. That attempted revision of the historical aspects of American slavery does NOT compute.

As it pertains to the history of America, slavery is very much the province and provenance of African Americans.”

aztlan on Nov 19, 2013 at 12:56:27

“What a tirade. And debt enslaving us? The big difference here is that we all have the right to move out of the country in order to avoid your so called "enslavement". Historically, those who were enslaved did not have that option.”

Hiram Belt on Nov 19, 2013 at 12:44:17

“As I commented below, debt bondage is the MOST common form of slavery, and it still continues today. See: antislavery.org”

“What do they mean by the "black-white score gap"”

KickstandCat on Nov 7, 2013 at 12:54:10

“I don't know, but it seem to be fair game.

"In fourth-grade math, the black-white score gap has narrowed since 1990, but not since 2011. The Hispanic-white gap has remained unchanged.

In eighth-grade math, black-white and Hispanic-white score gaps haven't budged. At both grade levels in math, the male-female gap hasn't changed.

In fourth-grade reading, the black-white score gap has narrowed since 1992, but not since 2011. The Hispanic-white gap hasn't changed. In eighth grade, the black-white score gap hasn't narrowed. The Hispanic-white gap decreased from 1992, but not from 2011."

I can only assume they are talking about the "take you pick"-bloviated white male gap.”

“Durbin’s comments — leveled at a Republican lawmaker he refused to name during a meeting he didn’t attend — were called into question on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. House Republicans and the Obama administration refuted the account and the GOP sought an apology.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Wednesday that the comment “did not happen.” After the briefing, the White House declined to elaborate other than to reiterate that the administration doesn’t believe anyone said this to the president

“The Democrats put this rule in place. If they or you don't like it, then let them change it.
In 1975, the Democratic Senate majority, reduced the necessary supermajority to three-fifths (60 out of 100) However, as a compromise to those who were against the revision, the new rule also changed the requirement for determining the number of votes needed for a cloture motion's passage from those Senators "present and voting" to those Senators "duly chosen and sworn". Thus, 60 votes for cloture would be necessary regardless of whether every Senator voted.”

“No, they need to wake up and change the rules back to democracy. That you can't admit that the purpose of the filibuster throughout history was not obstructionism is the problem. The rules were ok when people had to stand up and filibuster and knew that it was only in rare, exceptional cases.

When people such as you think that rules are made to be abused so that the minority can do what it wants, the rules can change. Given you said the rules have to be followed, and that one rule is that the majority can change the rules to void the filibuster, that means you're in favor of the Republicans following the rule that Democrats can get rid of the filibuster. Right?”

“The gist of this article...40% of children are born out of wedlock. Fathers are not a part of the family.

The rise in women as earners is not due to making advances in the workplace. It is due to losing footing in familial relationships. Great. I can't see how this benefit society in any way. Including women. These are mostly low paying jobs.

The majority of these "liberated" working mothers are POOR single mothers.

Welcome to the irreversible division of the haves and have-nots in this country. The poor will continue the downward slide. The middle class is irreversibly along for the ride.

Let's all stop pretending that marriage and family does not benefit children and society. Mothers should be able raise their own children in the early years. They can return to the workforce as most moms did when I was growing up in the 70's.”

jessicadevyn on May 29, 2013 at 11:33:38

“Just because someone is born out of wedlock doesn't mean that fathers are not in the picture. Child support and custody laws apply the same way as they do to divorced families. My dad was being physically abused by his dad in the 60s and 70s because his mom could not get away because she had to stay with him if they wanted to all be fed. He made sure his daughter was educated so that she didn't have to depend on a man.”
