Obama made his feelings about the D.C. gun ban perfectly clear in the Chicago Tribune on November 20, 2007. The report said:

"But the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said that he "...believes that we can recognize and respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and the right of local communities to enact common sense laws to combat violence and save lives. Obama believes the D.C. handgun law is constititional."

"and the right of local communities to enact common sense laws to combat violence and save lives."

This is nothing more than veiled gun control-- typical liberal blather that the Left eats up- this organization is a sham for Dems- period!

AHSA is a false-flag operation; they've never supported anything other than severely infringing restrictions on the second amendment. their idea of rights isn't worth applying to any constitutional amendment, nor any law or regulation, whatsoever.

That's not a gun group, that's the AHSA. It has about five or six members and exactly the same positions on gun issues as the Brady Campaign (formerly Handgun Control, Inc.) and the Violence Policy Center.

Actually, they don't put any effort into pretending anymore.

This gun group is just a front for gun control you scum.

WHO is behind the Barack Obama for President
"moo-vement"?

........ GE ....and a gaggle of other corporate elitists.

Are a lot of working class Americans Bitter?

Well, they SHOULD be: Another GE candidate for President (SOLD to the public by the Corporate-Controlled "Mainstream MEDIA)...Ronald Reagan...began the MASSIVE Robbery of the American people that has continued to this day.

About every day the TV Talking heads say: "The Rich are getting richer and everybody else is getting poorer"

...& You'd Think...after nearly 30 years the NEWS People would FINALLY ASK: (& Answer) WHY?

The answer is simple: Reagan cut the top tax rate down from the 70%'s to the low 30%'s.

(If you made $100 million & your tax rate was 70% you would pay $70 million to Uncle Sam & keep $30 million...earning interest, or dividends THE NEXT YEAR on that $30 million. If, instead, you paid $30 million in taxes and KEPT $70 million-You'd make a lot MORE money the next year on that $70 million)

Simple: tax the rich a lot less AND they damn sure WILL get a whole lot richer a whole lot faster. There was 2 PARTS to Reaganomics tho. The second part was: "The Two-Tier Wage Structure"

i.e. Pay the Top level "executives" a Whole LOT MORE; Pay everybody else a Whole LOT LESS. (Newspapers & TV in the early 80's had articles & coverage of the "Two-Tier Wage Structure" that CORPORATE America trotted out IN CONCERT with Reagan's election & tax cuts.)

IF its CORPORATE POLICY to PAY Everybody else a WHOLE LOT LESS-everybody else is going to get-a whole lot poorer...huh?

a. It was deliberate. b. Its been going on for nearly 30 years.

Next Question: Is Obama likely to fix it?
Answer: Hell No. Because THE SAME PEOPLE are running him for President - The SAME WAY they got Reagan/ Bush1 / Bush2 elected: MEDIA PROPAGANDA.

GE owns MSNBC & NBC. AOL Time Warner owns CNN. Westinghouse owns CBS. (GE is the 2nd largest corporation on the planet). They have interlocking directorships. THEY ARE the Corporate-Controllers of the Corporate-Controlled Media.

MSNBC/NBC have become the CHIEF propaganda mouthpieces of the Obama Pushers (BOPN-Barack Obama Propaganda Networks)-just like FOX has been the the Bush Propaganda Network all these years.

There are no more Journalists, no more NEWS People. They have all become court jesters & clowns doing their bit to please their corporate masters..Top Level..PAID A WHOLE LOT MORE---Media whores.

Here's a glimpse of ONE of the $Billions of TAXPAYER-RIPOFF-Reasons GE wants to "elect" Obama President: GE & Westinghouse are in the business of building nuclear power plants. GE & Westinghouse are planning to reap BILLIONS in RISK-FREE Profits from building those nukes, AND, from the $High Dollar electricity rates those nukes will produce.

(They're planning to build one of those nuclear power plants in Pennsylvania.)

The Cheney Energy Bill passed in 2005 - made it possible for the nuclear industry to begin planning to build 29 new nuclear power plants (licensing hearings are already scheduled for the first few of them).

No new nuke plants were built for 30 years because the banks wouldn't loan the money - too risky. The Cheney Energy Bill solved that problem by Guaranteeing TAXPAYER PAYBACK of any of the nuke loans that default (The Congressional Budget Office rated the risk of default at 50% or greater)

Obama voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill. Clinton voted against. Clinton says her Energy plan does not include nuclear & if they want to be considered they will have to FIRST Make it Cheaper and find a safe way to dispose of the nuke waste.

McCain, this week on the Campaign trail said...we just have to face it we need to start building new, "CLEAN", nuclear power plants.

i.e. The Corporate Elitists are running OBAMA AND McCain for President.

("Getting off coal to go to nuclear is like giving up cigarettes to take up smoking crack".)

"Michelle Obama's Senior Thesis At Princeton"

In her senior thesis at Princeton, Michelle Obama, the wife of Barack
Obama
stated that America was a nation founded on "crime and hatred".
Moreover,
she stated that whites in America were "ineradicably racist". The
1985
thesis, titled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community" was
written under her maiden name, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson.

Michelle Obama stated in her thesis that to "Whites at Princeton, it
often
seems as if, to them, she will always be Black first..." However, it
was
reported by a fellow black classmate, "If those "Whites at Princeton"
really
saw Michelle as one who always would "be Black first," it seems that
she
gave them that impression".

Most alarming is Michelle Obama's use of the terms "Separatist " and
"integrationist" when describing the views of black people.

Mrs. Obama clearly identifies herself with a "Separatist" view of
race.

"By actually working with the Black lower class or within their
communities
as a result of their ideologies, a Separatist may better
understand the
desperation of their situation and feel more hopeless about a
resolution as
opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight."

Obama writes that the path she chose by attending Princeton would
likely
lead to her "further integration and/or assimilation into a white
cultural
and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the
periphery of
society; never becoming a full participant."

Michelle Obama clearly has a chip on her shoulder.
Not only does she see separate black and white societies in America,
but she
elevates black over white in her world.


[]

Here is another passage that is uncomfortable and ominous in meaning:

"There was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the black
community, I am
obligated to this community and will utilize all of my present and
future
resources to benefit the black community first and foremost. "

What is Michelle Obama planning to do with her future resources if
she's
first lady that will elevate black over white in America?

The following passage appears to be a call to arms for affirmative
action
policies that could be the hallmark of an Obama administration.

"Predominately white universities like Princeton are socially and
academically designed to cater to the needs of the white students
comprising
the bulk of their enrollments."

[]

The conclusion of her thesis is alarming.

Michelle Obama's poll of black alumni concludes that other black
students at
Princeton do not share her obsession with blackness. But rather than
celebrate, she is horrified that black alumni identify with our common
American culture more than they value the color of their skin. "I
hoped that
these findings would help me conclude that despite the high degree of
identification with whites as a result of the educational and
occupational
path that black Princeton alumni follow, the alumni would still
maintain a
certain level of identification with the black community. However,
these
findings do not support this possibility."

Is it no wonder that most black alumni ignored her racist
questionnaire?
Only 89 students responded out of 400 who were asked for input.


Michelle Obama does not look into a crowd of Obama supporters and see
Americans. She sees black people and white people eternally
conflicted with
one another.

The thesis provides a trove of Mrs. Obama's thoughts and world view
seen
through a race-based prism.
This is a very divisive view for a potential first lady that would do
untold
damage to race relations in this country in a Barack Obama
administration.


[]

Michelle Obama's intellectually refined racism should give all
Americans
pause for deep concern.


Now maybe she's changed, but she sure sounds like someone with an axe
to
grind with America. Will the press let Michelle get a free pass over
her
obviously racist comment about American whites? I am sure that it
will.
But it shouldn't.

Many people in the last century viewed Chinese characters as inferior to the more purely phonetic writing systems of Western languages.As a result,China nearly decided to abolish characters in the 1950s and even now most Chinese are not taught the rich tradition behind their writing system.
