April 27, 2011: A Day of National Shame

Post by Guest on Thu Apr 28, 2011 1:08 pm

First topic message reminder :

The release by the White House of President Obama's "official" birth certificate was a poignant reminder of just how deep and pervasive racism remains in our nation.

Think about this: A sitting president has to "prove" to the nation that he was indeed born in America -- Hawaii -- and therefore eligibly qualified to be elected president of the United States!

A factually non-issue was permitted become a national issue, not because of Donald Trump and the media. No, this was the ultimate result, of the silence and tacit acquiescence of white political, religious, and community leaders, especially leaders of faith-based organizations, who sat, said and did nothing to counter this insidious new form of 21st-century racism. The silence and abnegation of moral leadership, by persons whom we should have otherwise expected to publicly to challenge this growing "birther" issue, is a stain on the conscience of our nation.

Where's the upside down flag for the tornado victims.

I remember when people stared wearing ribbons for AIDS, now there's even a ribbon for male pattern baldness "A hair is a terrible thing to waste".

The flagrant use of these ribbons has diminished the meaning behind it, it has become just too common.

I must say I was disappointed to see such an iconic deeply meaningful symbol used like a a coffee filter.

I consider millions of people starving, facing homelessness, committing suicide, being without healthcare and no suitable (or any jobs for that matter) to be a National crisis.

Wear this with pride!

OH MY GOD!!! I DIDN'T MISS IT! IT'S TEA PARTY DAY!!!


We got people, who now look like the fools they are screaming, about the constitution and upside down flags.

Ya know, no one remembers the president. No one, at all. I think he is some sort of communist android. I bet he was built hy the Soviets in the 1950's and sent forward through time to bring socialism to the United States!

Today is a national day of shame. We have finally shown ourselves to be the racist nation that we are. The black president must not have born here.

This was on the cover The Independent in London today.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/special-report-the-day-america-took-leave-of-its-senses-2275816.html

We are the laughing stock of the world.

Let me rephrase, You guys are making us the laughing stock of the world. I know it hurts to be wrong, but birthers are wrong.

Was Obama vetted? Of course he was. The FBI doesn't "forget" to check if a candidate was born in the USA.



Upside down flags? The constitution promises me free speech, not just free speech that you like, free speech.

The Obama bashers (not referring to rational criticism, but outrageous, irrational, racist thinking/behavior) are out in force. Troll alert!

Hey people, its been about a week since ive been able to post, but I had tgo chime in.

It's been a sad last few years in this country. Racism is still prevelant, but when it comes to the Obama and the priorities or lack there of I think its obvious racism, amonst other things are being used as a distractionary measures. This week has the highest number of unemployed claims, its the 1st time ever a tornado watch was in effect for parts of New York and California simutaneously, couple that with the whole Royal wedding crap and I think you have a lot of other reasons on top of homelessness and the flushing of this country down the toilet to turn the American flag upside down.

Theres a lack of perception due to so much going on and unless we all can agree to get things on track, I fear for what could happen.

ACTUALLY YES! Many people have been calling 911 or suicide hotlines because they are suicidal due to long term unemployment...it is a fact! Calls to suicide hotlines have risen dramatically in the past few yrs due to long term unemployment. We had a member here commit suicide due to long term unemployment. SO YES, OUR COUNTRY IS IN DISTRESS, therefor, I believe there is just cause for the flag to be displayed upside down!!

Here is an article about suicide and unemployment written last summer:

I agree but i just think the use of an upside was used in a silly disrespectful way. And anybody's whose life was saved because the used an upside down flag would agree.

This whole thing is yet another feeble attempt at discrediting the POTUS.What folks dont seem to realize is that if the prez fails we as a country fails.

That ink on the birth certificate wasn't invented until 1981. It actually was made for the invitations to Princess Diana's Royal wedding. The soviets went back in time and forged Obama's birth certificate but mistakenly used this wrong anachronistic ink. It's simply because the soviet time traveler's were not vetted properly and therefore made this terrible mistake. This has laid too much doubt at the feet of their Obama android, the Obandroid if you will, and now he can't bring about the down fall of our country by giving us healthcare.

LMAO!! Yes it is some big elaborate conspiracy!
LMAO

They have been training Obama since birth for this!

Ever see the movie Salt where angelina jolie is the double agent trained by the soviets since she was child to be a spy in the USA?? She even made it to the CIA! Rolling Eyes

You forgot ...

The ink was so toxic that when Diana licked all the envelopes she licked some of the ink, and that ink laid dormant in her system for years. But she had a bad reaction to it one night causing convulsions and hit her driver in the back of the head. That was the night she died and inspired the Sienfeld episode when Susan died from licking the glue from the wedding invitation envelope glue.

At this point I don't care where Obama was born. The damage done to the country by the bad people in Washington can't be undone if they all left today. It will take some good replacements that I doubt exist. We might have to explore the cosmos to find an honest politician who cares about jobs. JOBS JOBS JOBS....
