The Food Stamp President

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It  said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.

It’ll grow until 2017, at least, unless we rid ourselves of Obama this November.  Though some people are starting to sound rather hopeful in that regard.

Obama has been an utter catastrophe for the United States – you take Johnson, Nixon and Carter, roll them in to one huge, nauseating political ball and you won’t get the disaster which is President Obama.  I honestly don’t think that Obama cares for America – not for the America that we Americans live in.  He has this vision of an entirely different America; something alien to our experience and against our finest ideals.  An America of socialist “rights” is what Obama wants – a right to government support, a right to not work, a right to be in school for decades, a right to retire early, a right to an abortion, a right to all the sex we can stand; and, of course, since he’s from Chicago, a right to political payoffs if you are properly connected to the elite…but no right to free speech, no right to worship God, no right to bear arms…

I am in good spirits, though – disgusted with things as they are, but still feeling confident.  I do believe we are awake.  Underneath the relentless MSM propaganda for Obama the real fight is going on…with patriots working hard to defeat Obama and these patriots will not be denied.  We’ll see how things come out – but on November 7th, I suspect we who love America will be highly pleased with the election results.

    This is rank nonsense and as dishonest a representation of another person as I have seen. “No right to free speech, no right to worship God, no right to bear arms”? I can already anticipate your response, and will just say this: I could clip things you have written on this blog and put together an even more damning caricature and call it a real picture of you, but I’m not interested in doing such things. The Ten Commendments expressly say “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

    You might not live on Pennsylvania Avenue, but in the brotherhood of man Barack Obama is your neighbor, and you bear false witness against him on a regular basis. May God forgive you, and create within you the spirit of honesty and love.

      Dennis, you’re correct in that liberty-loving Americans are going to kick Obama’s a$$ so far from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on November 6th that none of those things will ever materialize.

    • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 8:28 am

      dennis, I agree, some of the wording should probably be changed.

      I suggest SEVERELY RESTRICTED rights to free speech, to worship God, to to bear arms…

      After all. to date the administration has not yet tried to completely eliminate these inherent rights of Americans, just erode them. We can speculate that the goal is total negation of all three, but for now let’s be fair and admit that so far it’s just carving out chunks of them, here and there.

      Aside from this minor correction, I find the rest of your post to be Classic Dennis, a whining compilation of supercilious and pompous platitudes. And, of course, one of blinding hypocrisy, as you lecture US on honesty and love, the “brotherhood of man”, blah blah blah.

      We get it—you are the Only True Christian, the only one truly schooled in The Way and The Light, and God has sent you to lecture us, interminably, on our many moral errors. Too bad you blow the whole effort at occupation of the Higher Moral Ground by supporting a political system that is, at its core and by definition, the very opposite of the platitudes you so piously mouth.

      You scramble to excuse this by simply “rejecting” the definition and history of this system, but that is simply silly. And, of course, dishonest, though it is interesting to see your willingness to claim ignorance rather than try to defend it.

      • tiredoflibbs April 20, 2012 / 8:52 am

        Why doesn’t Denny preach to his pResident on “bearing false witness”?

        After all, the pResident says conservatives want dirtier air and water, starve senior citizens, make the poor “fend for themselves” and an endless collection of other lies.

        Again, Denny stick to photography and stained glass. Anything else is way above your head.

      I can’t say other than I said given the actions I’ve seen of this man, Barack Obama. He doesn’t like the United States of the Founders. He acts in a manner which indicates nothing but contempt for what my father and grandfather fought for in two world wars. He has a different concept of right and wrong from me – and, I believe, a different concept than the broad majority of Americans. We’ll see in November if I’m right.

    Well said Mark, and I believe that you bear true witness against the dumbest, and worst president this country has ever had, and there isn’t even a close second. Obama is also dishonest and hides his true intent behind moderate rhetoric. Remember when he said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term? Remember when he said that health care costs would go down? How about when he said that he would listen to all sides, make no excuses and unite this country?

    I can tell you this much, Obama doesn’t like the kind of American I am. A moderately successful hard working, conservative American who pays taxes. In fact he often shows an utter disdain for people like me, telling Hispanic voters to punish me at one point. Any common sense American who has a first grade understanding of economics would fire Obama for his performance over the last three years and I am just one American who will be giving Obama the pink slip this November.

    Re: food stamps and the Ryan budget – don’t let the dishonest POS president lie about this issue as well. The Ryan budget calls for going back to prerecession levels of spending in the food stamp program by 2016, which is hardly wanting people to starve as liberals and our idiot president want you to believe. But it is a common sense approach to getting our spending under control, something Obama has no intention of doing.

  4. Cluster April 20, 2012 / 8:03 am

    Also, consider the manner in which Obama has managed our government. The GSA is completely out of control, the secret service are doing what they want with little oversight, the stimulus package was just a payoff to unions and accomplished practically nothing but to enrich Obama’s cronies, the energy department has wasted more money than ever before in their history, and yet he still has no plan, and no clue as to how to control this huge bureaucracy.

      Amazona, you might be right about that “plan” of Obama’s. Why else would someone spend $5 trillion of borrowed money in three years with nothing to show for it?

      I saw Ryan on Greta last night and he was, as usual, fantastic. He spelled out his budget in real terms of cutting and capping and every approach he lays out is a common sense and practical approach to avoiding the disaster the democrats have us headed towards. While Obama will continue to demonize and divide America, the GOP will be all about restoring the greatness of this country.

    • Retired Spook April 20, 2012 / 8:59 am

      Amazona,

      I think you are spot on. The only way the majority of Americans will accept a collectivist form of government will be to first make what we have seem so unpalatable that almost anything will appear better.

      I was talking to a deputy sheriff friend of mine at the Y last week, and the topic of the election came up. He said his comments didn’t necessarily reflect the thinking of the Sheriff’s Dept., although it did reflect the thinking of probably a majority of the personnel. He thinks this election is going to be a lose/lose election: if Obama wins, we’ll enter a period of economic and societal collapse, and if he loses, we’ll have a race war. I hope he’s wrong. I guess we’ll see in 200 days.

      • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 9:06 am

        And what does that comment say about the damage done to our nation by the race-baiting tactics of Obama and his crew?

        The callous decision to create as much suspicion and hatred as possible in the black community, toward whites, in an effort to solidify a voting bloc, is probably the most despicable in a long list of despicable actions by this president.

  6. Retired Spook April 20, 2012 / 8:41 am

    Remember back on January 20, 2009:

    President-elect Barack Obama pledged yesterday to shape a new Social Security and Medicare “bargain” with the American people, saying that the nation’s long-term economic recovery cannot be attained unless the government finally gets control over its most costly entitlement programs.That discussion will begin next month, Obama said, when he convenes a “fiscal responsibility summit” before delivering his first budget to Congress. He said his administration will begin confronting the issues of entitlement reform and long-term budget deficits soon after it jump-starts job growth and the stock market.

    “What we have done is kicked this can down the road. We are now at the end of the road and are not in a position to kick it any further,” he said. “We have to signal seriousness in this by making sure some of the hard decisions are made under my watch, not someone else’s.”

    And he said he’d prefer to get moving on this within the first two years of his presidency, and definitely within his first term.

    Instead, the growth of entitlement spending under this president looks like the famous climate hockey stick graph.

    • Cluster April 20, 2012 / 8:52 am

      More rank dishonesty from our divider in chief. And instead of actually doing what he said he would, he now chooses to demonize people like Paul Ryan who are trying to do the heavy lifting.

        Obama’s neglect and perhaps abuse as a child didn’t end there.

        Obama’s grandfather chose a black male father figure for him: Frank Marshall Davis. Obama discusses Frank numerous times in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” but he leaves out some of the most interesting details. Davis was a drinking buddy, who shared the same politics as Obama’s grandfather.

        Davis was a member of the Communist Party. He wrote a fictionalized memoir boasting of his bisexual and pedophile exploits. In his memoir, Marshall describes how he and his white wife sexually abuse a 13-year-old girl entrusted to their care.

        He and his wife would have sex with the girl. Anne came up many times the next several weeks, her aunt thinking she was in good hands. Actually she was. She obtained a course in practical sex from experienced and considerate practitioners rather than from ignorant insensitive neophytes….I think we did her a favour, although the pleasure was mutual.”

        This same Frank Marshall Davis, according to Obama’s memoir, counseled Obama not to trust white people.

        Neo, here are the money lines from your AT article:

        When you compare Ann Romney and Ann Dunham, it is easy to understand Obama’s gnawing envy. He should have worked on his problems long ago with the help of a minister or therapist.

        Instead he was directed along a far left political path by his grandfather, his mother, his lonely dreams of impressing his absent African socialist father, and the teachings of his black Communist father figure, Frank Marshall Davis. Every single adult Obama depended on let him down then taught him the politics of envy.

        Now Obama is trying to teach envy to the whole country; his reelection strategy is based on envy of the rich. He has projected his private demons of unfairness and deprivation onto America at large and is determined to fix us. With the media at heel, he is turning his Democrat followers into a nasty mob, which loyally attacks each Republican target in turn.

      Well, the last big kick to the can was the strident response to Bush’s effort to reform Social Security, back in his first term.

      When a plan was put forth to leave current SS recipients and those approaching retirement age with the same plan they have now, but to gradually make alternatives, such as private investment in a few carefully chosen investment vehicles, available for younger workers, the Left blew a gasket.

      We knew then that the existing system was in a death spiral, but the Left could not and would not accept anything that moved Social Security away from government control and into the private sector. How could they? Their basic ideology is one of government control and antipathy, at the very least, toward capitalism and private enterprise.

      • bardolf April 20, 2012 / 12:59 pm

        Amazona

        I have two libertarian problems with the privatize social security bit proposed by Bush.

        The first problem is what to do with all the people who opt out of Social Security and end up losing everything they have in their investments.

        The second problem is the push toward encouraging the opt out people into a very narrow avenue of investing which already is overpriced because of artificially high demand.

        Regarding the first, we have seen that the AARP is the most reliable group of voters and as a consequence the US is now facing trillions of dollars of future liabilities for Medicare D promised them by GWB. As the American Spectator puts it “Even Paul Ryan ended up voting for the biggest new entitlement program since the Great Society, one that actually increased Medicare’s unfunded liabilities by trillions of dollars.”

        What is to say that the future elderly don’t vote themselves entitlements as a whole in the form of a backup social security for those that wagered their retirement in the stock market and lost?

        Regarding the second, it is anti-free market for the government to decide “a few carefully chosen investment vehicles”. If I were a stock broker I’d be thrilled with the possibility that by default people will be moving their retirement from SS to the stock market. Economists have a term for what will happen “demand pull inflation of prices”.

        The only reasonable way is to let people have their SS in the form of cash and let them decide what to do with it for themselves. Maybe they want to start a business on their own in their middle age and use that as a retirement plan.

      • tiredoflibbs April 20, 2012 / 4:18 pm

        bardolf: “The first problem is what to do with all the people who opt out of Social Security and end up losing everything they have in their investments.”

        With the most conservative investments out there, a person can get a rate of return on their investment which is better than the rate of return on SS.

        BTW, I have never “lost everything” in my mutual funds, 401K and other holdings. Most long term investments and balanced portfolios are for just that long term investing. Even with the banking and mortgage blunders by the banks and their federal regulations that almost destroyed the market, I have lost only 25% of my investments at the initial hit. I have been slowly recovering.

        I would recover faster if the government would quit meddling in the markets and the mortgage crisis would never have happened if the fed had not forced banks to make mortgages in which they would normally found too risky.

      • dbschmidt April 20, 2012 / 10:29 pm

        IIRC, SS has an average return of 1%. If that isn’t losing money compared to how much they are devaluing the dollar–nothing is.

        BTW, don’t bother looking up counties like Galveston, Tx. who opted out and got real returns on their money rather than like my mother who I still have to help out because of SS “returns.”

      • bardolf April 21, 2012 / 1:33 am

        Tiredoflibbs and DB

        Mentioning what prudent people who move their money from SS to conservative investments will do doesn’t address my question in the least. It’s plausible that a significant percent will bet on the next dotcom bubble with their SS money. Do you think the prudent investors + SS should bail them out or tell them to tough it out in their old age?

        I’ve put money into the stock market since around Jan 2000 when the Dow was at 11,700. Today it is at 13,000 so in 12 years it has averaged a measly 1% while inflation has been well above that number and even SS probably beat that performance. That holds true by and large for millions of conservative investors in my pension plan over the last decade. That anecdote is an antidote to the Galveston story could well have occurred by coincidence since I’m hoping the stock market downturn was only by chance as well.

        Bardolf,

        I suspect, if even a portion of S.S. funds were to be allowed to be in private accounts, there would be substantial safeguards to insure a maximum return. Investing in the next Dot.Com bubble wouldn’t be an option. There is no way a bill allowing everyone to do whatever they pleased with the money would EVER pass Congress. The Federal Employees Thrift Savings Plan would serve as an excellent model.

        I had a similar experience with retirement funds as you, although I got out within 60 days of the peak in 2007, and I sat out all but 6 months of the 2000 — 2003 downturn. Interestingly, I utilize MarketWatch’s portfolio tracker to track my old portfolio, which consisted of a broad spectrum of 12 mutual funds, 4 each in 3 different fund families. From 2002 to 2007, I averaged about 15% return a year. Since spring of 2007 when I got out, that same portfolio has averaged .5% return a year, and that’s including capital gains distributions and dividends. However, if you look at the 3 longest term funds in the TSP, dating back to the plan’s inception in the late 80’s, they all have respectable long-term returns averaging 7.4%.

      • dbschmidt April 21, 2012 / 1:26 pm

        All I was saying is the government does an extremely poor job of “investing” just like everything else it does. A comparison could be made from one of my previous 401Ks that I need to roll-over into an IRA. You can let the people select but none will be a complete loss.

        Last 3 Months 10.97%
        1 Year 4.64%
        3 Year Annualized 20.3%
        5 Year Annualized N/A
        10 Year Annualized N/A
        Since Inception 18.72% (which would be 2007 in this case)

        These are spread across options like Harbor International-Inst, Equity Market-F, Spartan 500 Index-Adv, Fidelity OTC Portfolio, and of course items like BlackRock US Debt Index-T. None have even approached 0 let alone had an annual return of 1%

      • tiredoflibbs April 21, 2012 / 3:59 pm

        bard,

        you do realize that the DJIA is an AVERAGE of only a certain group of stocks?

        While those stocks have given a 1% increase as you say. My investments, which is diversified for the LONG TERM, has beaten that rate of return for the same period.

        A dot.com type of investment would be a fraction of my portfolio in which I would not put so much of it due to its high risk.

        Social Security is a huge Ponzi Scheme, which will more than likely fail, according to many experts. Private citizens have gone to jail for implementing such schemes, while the federal government does it every day.

    neo, just got back from a quick trip to Fort Lauderdale. I thought of finding a way to contact you, so I could buy you a beer, but was on a very tight schedule——threw a bag in my car Tuesday morning in case I wrapped up other stuff in time, took a chance on going to the airport and then on finding a spot in a “full” close-in parking garage, got to the gate with 15 minutes to spare, and got into my hotel in Weston at about 2:00 a.m. Spent the day up the coast, got my equipment stuff wrapped up, had a nice celebration dinner, got back to the hotel at 9:30, and flew back yesterday. Went from the airport to a family birthday party so it was a long couple of days.

    I don’t know who I was listening to on the radio, but it was a local guy because he is in Mad DAWGG Sheila’s consituency, and was impressed with local talk radio. I’d hoped for a little sightseeing time but saw enough to know I’d like to come back for a vacation.

    It’s definitely very pretty there, though a little humid for someone born and bred in the high plains of Colorado, and I could imagine you out on your bike. I wished I had convertible instead of the last miivan in the car rental area at 1:00 a.m. If I go back out I’ll look you up…….

Last week I was turning on my sprinkler system while my mountain place got 2′ of snow.

        But November-March is when we start looking south, particularly toward the end of the winter season when some flowers and balmy days seem pretty darned attractive.

    From the Manhattan Institute report on welfare reform: http://www.manhattan-institute.org/html/cr_17.htm

    The number of families on welfare declined by 50 percent between the passage of welfare reform legislation in August, 1996 and the date for the most recent caseload statistics, September, 2000.

    Most of the women heading these families have gone to work, contrary to the expectations of many welfare reform critics. The proportion of single mothers who work has increased dramatically since welfare reform, nearly matching the proportion leaving welfare.

    Regression results indicate that Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), the federal program created in 1996 pursuant to the welfare reform law, accounts for more than half of the decline in welfare participation and more than 60 percent of the rise in employment among single mothers.

    These results also show that although the booming economy of the late 1990s contributed both to the decline in welfare and to the rise in work participation among single mothers, that contribution was relatively minor compared to the contribution of TANF, accounting for less than 20 percent of either change.

    The decline in welfare participation was largest for groups of single mothers commonly thought to be the most disadvantaged: young (18–29) mothers, mothers with children under seven years of age, high school dropouts, black and Hispanic single mothers, and those who have never been married.

    Employment gains have also been the largest among disadvantaged single mothers: mothers who have never married, mothers between the ages of 18 and 29, mothers with children under seven years of age, high school dropouts, and black and Hispanic mothers.

    TANF’s beneficial effects extend even to the most disadvantaged portions of the welfare-eligible population. TANF accounts for 40 percent of the increase in work participation among single mothers who are high school dropouts; 71 percent of the increase in work participation among 18–29 year old single mothers; and 83 percent of the increase in work participation among black single mothers.

      And what has Obama done with one of, if not THE MOST successful federal programs in my lifetime?

      Pres. Barack Obama vowed to correct the mistakes of the Bush administration but instead is determined to undo one of the great successes of the Clinton years: welfare reform. Democrats have inserted provisions into the catch-all stimulus bill that will reverse Clinton-era welfare reform, re-establishing the wasteful, incentive-killing system whose transformation was the bipartisan pride of the 1990s.

      • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 10:38 am

        And here is a key element of the welfare reform shoved down Clinton’s throat by the Gingrich-led Republican Congress:

        The results were successful–spectacularly so. The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act was followed by reductions in both the number of families on welfare and the rate of poverty. Single women entered the workforce in substantial numbers and the household incomes of former welfare recipients went up. In other words, the incentives to reduce welfare dependence and help people to find work, worked.

        BTW, Clinton now refers to this welfare reform, vetoed three times by him before he realized he would have to sign it if it was presented to him again, as the crowning glory of his presidency.

      • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 10:33 am

        I see. Sucking up money other people have worked hard to earn is more moral, more noble, than working at Wendy’s—a position you can take if you first set yourself up as the boss of all, and decide that the food Wendy’s sells is bad for people.

        So you make a moral judgment about what is and is not “good” for other people, and then you build another moral judgment on top of that—that refusing to contribute to this is a good thing—-and this all justifies being a parasite.

        Ditto for working at, say, WalMart. They buy their goods overseas, so Van decides that it is produced by slave labor, so selling it is supporting slavery, so it is more moral and noble to let other people pay your way.

        (Let’s walk back that “slavery” thing, OK? People come to work at these places. Why? Because they are desperate to earn money to survive. Take away the manufacturing, in the name of “saving” these people, and all you do is take away their only method of making enough money to buy food and housing. Yes, some of the working conditions are deplorable—but they are all these people have. Rather than just cut off the only source of income available to them, and leaving them to starve while engaging in some self-congratulatory celebration without a thought about the consequences of their actions, the Left could do a couple of other things.

        For example, they could take a look at the political system under which these poor people are so desperate they will work for pennies, discover that in every single case it is one of powerful central government, and work to help the people establish a government model that encourages repesentative government, free enterprise and upward economic mobility.

        Oooops–can’t do that, as it would mean, first, actually DOING something instead of just speechifying, and second, acknowledging the human and economic cost of the system they love so much.

        Nope—they would rather scratch at a symptom, create more problems as they “solve” that one, and move on to another Cause.)

        The National Action Network, a civil rights organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton in 1991, began its annual convention last Wednesday with an address from Attorney General Eric Holder.

        The Attorney General wasn’t the only official from the Obama administration to attend the conference. Other major speakers included Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis (as covered by The Blaze), Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, to name just a few.

        Among the topics discussed during the four-day convention were economic disparity, D.C. statehood, social justice/injustice, “How the church can be utilized to re-elect President Obama,” and the Trayvon Martin shooting.

        neo, maybe your friends can tell you the percentage of WalMart management that has come up through the ranks.

        That is, the upward economic mobility offered by the company to people whose qualifications, at original hiring, were probably only enough to be hired at the lowest level in the company.

        Uh-oh—-I think I just put my finger on the real reason WalMart is so despised, other than their union stance, of course. It is that damned meritocracy thing the Left can’t stand.

    Occupy Wall Street Planning Countrywide Mayday Event For May 1st, 2012

      My, what a shrill and overheated screed from the heart of the feverswamp! I particularly liked the last line: Be strong, my comrades, and we shall see the dawn of the People.

      BTW, isn’t May Day the focal point of Communist celebration of the glories of Marxism? And hasn’t it traditionally been marked by exhibitions of military might, such as tanks trundling around Red Square?

    • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 10:46 am

      From wikipedia:

      In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups. In some circles, bonfires are lit in commemoration of the Haymarket martyrs, usually at dawn. May Day has been an important official holiday in Communist countries such as the People’s Republic of China, Cuba and the former Soviet Union. May Day celebrations typically feature elaborate popular and military parades in these countries.

      Ain’t it great to see the radical Left coming out of the closet, now that they have the stamp of approval from the leader of the Free World, and don’t have to try to disguise their agendas? Ah,yes, it IS a Brave New World.

        Ted Nugent has never said a racist word. If he is involved in a race war it will be because, as a white man, he is targeted. And I can’t think of many things funnier than someone going after Ted Nugent.

But even if we were, getting stuck with another four years of Barry couldn’t possibly put “James’s” misconception “to bed”. What an utterly stupid comment.

        “Farakhan does not represent the left! which politician or democratic official has ever endorsed a single word that guy said? ”

        Funnier and funnier. But then if you live in total abject ignorance of what “the Left” IS, and are totally hung up on superficial Identity Politics, then I suppose it might make sense to think that being “endorsed” by someone equals a definition of his ideology.

        “James” has been exhibiting his farmer/rancher bigotry since he posted as himself, the Impotent Persian. What is so funny is that I am far better educated than he, infinitely smarter than he, and a hell of a lot more affluent than he. His idea of wit was to tell me to out on the range and milk a cow. Now he is snarling about growing seeds.

        He has always been nothing but an oozing abscess of impotent rage, hating the United States, hating his ignorant cartoonish image of “conservatives”, hating women (making it mutual), hating farmers, hating people who do not live in cities, hating people older than he, hating hating hating.

        He has admitted that he thinks his income, or at least what he claims is his income, makes him better than other people.
        This is quite insightful, showing that on some level he is aware that there is nothing about his intelligence, his personality or his character that could make him better than anyone, so the superficial nature of a little more money than someone else has is really all he can brag about.

        Oh, he brags, but only about invented lies, like being a lawyer.

        The poor creature has never expressed a single idea, at least on this blog, and so far has never shown us anything but a sad, sick, pathetic but profoundly toxic persona.

        He will claim he is not the Impotent Persian, but the syntax and the specific hatreds are easily recognizable from one invented name to another.

    I will leave the farming and seeding to the uneducated underclass of society. – James

    Wow. So not only is James a racist, he is a classist as well – who knew?

    Denigrating hard working farmers? Not cool

    • Cluster April 20, 2012 / 3:31 pm

      Incidentally James, I have several very well to do clients from North Dakota that are all farmers – educated, tax paying, hard working, salt of the earth people. Your comment above only serves to remind us all why people like you will no longer have power.

When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.”

        “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

        — Former Klansman and current US Senator Robert Byrd, a man who is referred to by many Democrats as the “conscience of the Senate”, in a letter written in 1944, after he quit the KKK.

        “I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state …. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia …. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities.”

It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.”

        -Harry Truman (1911) in a letter to his future wife Bess

        “There’s some people who’ve gone over the state and said, ‘Well, George Wallace has talked too strong about segregation.’ Now let me ask you this: how in the name of common sense can you be too strong about it?

    I would have to disagree that you are educated. You have credentials. You have a piece of paper saying you completed your required time. Being educated means you have learned something of value.

    I have more education in two years of community college than you will ever have at all credentialed schools.

    When it comes time for me to feed my family, I can and I will. You will have to take your food from people like me at gunpoint.

    Good luck wiyh Thomas. 🙂
