True enough

This isn't a racial issue. This is a control issue. I, for one, am a law abiding citizen and don't consider myself a racist. I don't like the new president, not because he is black, but because of what he stands for and who he is standing with. I don't care if the fucker is green with purple polka dots, he is a socialist. That is what I don't like and will never stand with him on any issue that he holds dear. I am a diehard capitalist and a diehard guns rights activist. He, and his henchmen in Congress, are against everything that I stand for. They are also against everthing that makes this country the greatest in the world. I live here because I choose to. I was born here and wish to stay here. If I wanted to live in a country that was more like Europe, I would move to Europe. Obama, Hitlery Clinton, Reid, Frank and Nazi Pellosi, leave my constitution and my country alone!

Hey i just got on and i read craigmans 9mm "N Word Comment. It kinda pissed me off, i thought this was a site were people came to exchange gun info,and jaw jack about whatever. Now i see this site has gone to a whole nother level. Greasy you seem like a stand up guy. It's just a sad shame how some people still and will forever think! My bio clearly states here to share info and RESPECT OTHERS. Maybe i need to rethink about using this site.

Don't let one person screw up a good thing for you. If you don't like what craigmans 9mm says. Just don't read it, still stay and enjoy yourself with the others that think the same way as you and love they guns.

Amen Brother

We have got way bigger fish to fry than to worry about the color of someone's skin. It is what is in his head and his heart that is scaring the shit outta me. He wants to start us on the path of "One World, One Government". This is some biblical stuff that is mentioned at the end of the world. We are truly in the "end times", and I am not ready to give it all up just yet. I am a fairly observant person, and what I am seeing is that we are on a path of destruction and it is gonna take one huge miracle to save us from total world destruction. I used to make fun of these people that cried "The end is near!" but now I think that they were seeing something that I was turning a blind eye to. Maybe they ain't a crazy as I once throught they were.

Hey ebear

I dislike all the races, the one I dislike the most is whites. Oh, crap I forgot I am white! Well, I guess I'm going to have to change then.LOL
We all live on this Earth, and we all bleed red blood if we get hurt. If God don't want one race over all the others, He would not have made them, this is my point of view.

Racial Ethinic remark

The comment i made was not intended to be racial, it may have been harsh, but then i have read worse on this site about obama. the remark was implyed to the storie i have read proir to writing this comment. the obama paid day off in alabama. Why is it that certain ethinic people always or sometimes get more regonition when we as americans are usually or have the same part or part of the american ways and also regonize the same important people. Say for instance george washington, abe lincoln etc.etc.
My veiws may or may not be as the next person but i am getting tired of being pushed down as a white american tax paying average joe as we are in whole finding myself getting closer to the bottom of the food chain. We are struggling to make a stand in this once great country but it is changing for the worst. I applogize to anybody and whom ever i affended, my comment was just a veiw of a situation not a racial remark. I am not that kind of person. I can promise you that. I will step down from this web site if this is not good enough explination. I guess my choice of words where inapropiate. I do like this web site for the contant that i have read. We all have our imput and views. freedom of speech i guess? again sorry to all please accept.

I understand both ends of this. The older guys on the site remember real racism back in the 60', 70's. I missed all the evil shit that happened and was not exposed to the racial shit until dealing with affirmative action, reverse descrimination etc. Even the language has changed with my generation. Nigger was different for my generation- it was almost a good word. We grew up on Public Enemy, NWA and hip hop where the language blurred all the correctness. People from different generations see things differently. What is inappropriatness? So Nigger may mean something different to me and you but has a offensive meaning to older memebers on the site. I am still confused as to the use of the word by blacks and white. It really is a confusing issue when a black person refers to another black at work as a nigger. It is a good connection for them, but makes me feel completely uncomfortable.

Just wait until..

Wait until Obama is in and the handouts are not what everyone thinks they will be. When all the needies figure out Obama is not the mesieah but another George Bush (but with good communication skills). Then the shit will hit the fan and these obama supporters will turn on him. All my Liberal white friends who compare Bush to Hitler are gonna be pissed. We will not leave Iraq in Obamas term, we will not have reduced spending or reduced taxes, patriot act will not be stopped...the list goes on becuase Bush made many good decisions that can not be reversed for National secutity reasons. Do not know what you have until its gone.....

i have been to Marion, Alabama and it is poor. they do have some interesting history there but overall the majority of the populous did not work. the police chief and the sheriff are identical twin brothers. they both were totally aware of a VERY busy crack house that was being ran out of an old gas station right in the middle of the town. guess an extra day off would give those Obama voters time to go pick up a dime bag or an 8 ball....hehe

Just wait...

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There will be an Obama federal holiday. These stinkin' hippies will stop at nothing to indoctrinate our children, demoralize the thinking people of this great land and commit oppression at their leasure. We ain't seen nothing yet. Hold on tight, you are gonna need a score card to tell who the players are at the end of this one. This guy will be heralded as the second coming before we can get him out of office. By the way...Thank you North Georgia for voting for Saxby Chambliss. That keeps the liberal hippie types from having a fillibuster-proof senate. That could be the only toe-hold that we get for a while. Maybe he can introduce a bill declaring open season on anyone stinking of patchouli and body odor.

"At the state level, Alabama observes the standard federal holidays as well as a handful of its own that include Confederate Memorial Day in April and the June birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. It observes Martin Luther King's birthday in January but the holiday is twinned with commemoration of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the same day."

well it sounds like a place full of idiots, I have never seen anyone celebrate confederate memorial day or there leaders. Well im sure they will push for hitlers birthday next year...

and how can these ppl be so dumb to celebrate a man who has done noting more than yell change! Ive got a homeless guy on my way to work who has been doing that for years ...lol

As a white male in the corporate environment, I am intimidated by the overtones of racism associated with my background. Minorities are far more racist than any other group I have been associated with. I am far more effected by race because of the stereotypes of whites. They assume I am racist because I own guns, hunt, fish and go to church. I send my kids to Christian school because I feel that the should at least know of Jesus's teachings and choose their path in life. I have been insulted as a redkneck and intolerant because of my home life.
The gays especially vocalize their distain for me. If I ever said anything anti-gay, I would be fired immediately.
Now imagine the feelings of Blacks in our country getting the full force of predjudice. My experience working for this company has placed a perspective on racism. That is to accept everyone on merit, but hold my values and family sacred.
My point is that we need to be above racial comments such as the N-word. We need to be patriots and create a nation where there is freedom and less judgementalism.

Yes!

I completely agree with you and simpathize with you as well. I too am a white male and feel the same exact way on these issues it is extremely unfair that we are judged as we are even though we may or may not be whatever that judgement arrives at.... the simple fact that no one bothers to ask or find out, but rather assumes is unfair and injust....

I agree with everyone on the race card... not needed.

Back to the article... I think that they're just looking for another paid day off! (thank you tax payers, who will likely be at work that day) Just shows the "work ethic" and "use of procedes beliefs" that some government decision makers possess.

from what i understand

From what i understand is that Obama is supposed to be for all people,and if there is any black person out there that thinks obama is going to be this "Black Savior" then they need to get their heads out of their asses.So some people may think that about the race card thing,and when it was mentioned that he was indeed the next pres elect i caught some footage on MSNBC and i saw more white females crying tears of joy for this man,young white males happy and jumping with joy. Now back to the race card,i find it hard not to mention when George Bush stole the election from Keary the decideing factor was Florida Were his brother Jeb was the Gov.Now would you call that the race card,a stolen election or people in florida are just plain stupid, to see that something was not right about that. And once again let it be known that i voted for bush,that was one of his many stolen items while in office. so greasy you are still ok with me in my book lol.

In the army, we have the EO classes and consideration of others training, Sexual Harrassment Intervention Training (SHIT), and all the other garbage, but very few people pay attention to it. My first time in Iraq, I had a soldier who called me his little cracker, and I called him my little porch monkey. Imagine that- a black and a white calling each other racially derogatory names and still getting along. Rodney King would be proud. The kinds of bonds I've seen in the army make all that feel-good, hippie shit irrelevant, for the most part. I have seven years to go before i can retire, and some of this crap I read and hear about in the civilian world scares the shit out of me. I could never imagine getting fired for making fun of somebody's race, gender, sexual orientation, or whatever. Not being able to joke around is just un-American. When did peoples' panties become twisted so badly?

ok here goes

my daughter was best friends with a black girl, she had a sleep over with 3 other girlfriends, 10 year old girls.2 white one hispanic and one blackgirl.when one of the girls found out she was sleeping over, she told the little black girl, she needed to go home cause her dad would kill her if she slept over with a nigger. i was downstairs when all of this happened.when that nice always respectful lil girl came running and crying down those stairs, the look on her face is burned in my mind.I've never seen some one so hurt in my life. and i hope i never do again. if that's anti- american then so be it. we all joke around and no one more than myself, but its all jokes...........i'll never use the n- word, its been three years since that happened but everytime i hear someone use it in a serious tone , it reminds me., so mwhat i'll do is stay out of political forums , and let it be.

Racism is ugly

If I meet a racists, I treat them the same way! I have been called a racists on this site. I am as far from a racist as there ever was. But it is easy to name call. Brand someone and they stay branded. Just like the mass media does. Hell the mass media elected this new President and I will never forget or forgive them. I will remind them at every turn and I will never support any of their advertisers. It is the only tool we have.
Every man should be judged,only,on his merits and worth as a human being. Is he/she a good parent? Are they honest? Thats all we have to measure a persons worth.

Im surprised to hear there are so many discrimination issues in that line of work. Its quite a shame that kind of thing happens anywhere, but particulary bad in the workplace. Hope there intolarance dosent cause you too many problems.
