#5 The Great Post-Racial President making racism ever more fundamental in the US? Say it ain't so!
It's not who you are, how hard you work, your education, aptitude skills. Forget that: it's your skin colour that will determine your chances of success. Goodbye aspiration. Goodbye incentives to work for success. Hello sloth and incompetence, and ever more divisive ghettoisation and unadulterated racism.
Did people in the states ever really believe Obama represented some kind of post-racism? It was always obvious the opposite was true, surely?

#7 I am certain comrades Mugabe and Shower Head Zuma are quite proud. The last vestiges of evil euro-colonialism will disappear as property and land ownership are redistributed to the appropriate recipients. I recommend we begin with the tax penalization of properties belonging to racially imballanced churches. It really is only fair.

#9 I see a lot of court actions in the future. However, there is a chance Zero will select new SCOTUS members during this term. A left-wing court is a scary thought.

#11 About that first Supreme Court appointment -- prolly first one will be the one and only Eric Holder, sometimes know as Obama's best friend, and he would pass Senate confirmation.

#12 Should probably try this out in football first. There are an underrepresentation of pahkistahn running backs, so if a team has a pahkistahni running back, each run will be increased by a factor of 1.5, except in losses then loss is reduced by said factor. Any interceptions made will be negated if said player touches the ball first. For any person who can link their heiritage to Cherokee is granted a factor of 2. A panal will be declared by the Secretary of Business to asses Factors of Fairness, beginning with College Football, which of course receives government monies and therefore a vested education direction is accordingly necessary. Voluntary complience of private universities is mandatory.

#13 I haven't seen too many angry white guys in college football these days. Any handicaps or points for recruiting white guys?

#14 Enthusiastic or otherwise personality noticable white males are a reminder of oppressive colonial racism. Penalty. Jarod Allen for example, except his celebration -the cattle rope- is a redneck lynching motion, additional penalty.
Now, white male homosexual/transgender or white female, now you are talking bonus, though not as significant as other races. Ru Paul for example would be around a bonus factor of 5.

#17 Say, wasn't a similar - albeit legal (meaning a law was passed by a majority of the House and Senate) - method employed by the Clinton administration, which lead to the housing meltdown?
The Community Reinvestment Act implemented a mandate for banks to give out loans to specific groups and areas. Non compliant banks would be put on a regulatory black list.
It is strange that Romney did not counter the left's narrative on the crash (vaguely defined 'greed') with one that was a bit closer to the truth.
The political class bullied banks into giving out loans that were economically nonviable. The CRA was one of the instruments.
In one of the debates Obama sarcastically asked Romney if he believes that regulation was a cause for the crisis. Romney should have answered 'yes.'

#18 Beso, that was me. My point was that 9mil less voted for bammer this time than in '08. While Romney '12, however, underperformed McCain '08 by almost 3mil votes. Seems to me demographics was less an issue than motivating the base. Demographics is and and will be an issue, no doubt, as our side will never be able to "out hand-out" the Staticrats. If hand-outs is the common denominator and not the message of fiscal conservatism - then we will always lose the moronic electorate vote to the staticrats. I think there is a lot of common ground between minorities of faith and Pubs. Pubs just need to reach out and smarten up their tactics.

Obummer had nothing to do with the housing meltdown, nothing at all, I tell ya.

#23 Ah yes, the OWG Junkers-vs-Stalin Gruppe.
IOW, iff these Orgs are not de facto Govt. managed and controlled, to still be an NGO it must have a panel/level of Govt-approved Perts, espec in Top Management, to review + approve any and all internal decisions and polices.
