Obama To Unleash
Racial-Preferences Juggernaut

Investor's Business Daily, by Paul Sperry

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/8/2012 11:07:50 PM

If your organization has a policy or practice that doesn't benefit minorities equally, watch out: The Obama administration could sue you for racial discrimination under a dubious legal theory that many argue is unconstitutional. President Obama intends to close "persistent gaps" between whites and minorities in everything from credit scores and homeownership to test scores and graduation rates. His remedy — short of new affirmative-action legislation — is to sue financial companies, schools and employers based on "disparate impact" complaints — a stealthy way to achieve racial preferences, opposed 2 to 1 by Americans.

Here we go...

In other words equal opportunity has now been replaced by equal outcomes, and Obama can appoint the judges to say it is all OK. Nice going, idiot electorate!

So, he's going to go to Florida and sue them for setting lower achievement standards for students of color?

Or does he just want more of that "tyranny of lowered expectations"?

OK...let's start with the NBA, NFL, NAACP, Black Caucus and scholarships given out for college sports. That should make a good legal argument in court whenever they start accusing businesses of discrimination. If they use the ability excuse in sports, that should be countered with the ability in the workplace argument.

By the way, we have dumped all of our capital gains stocks before the big tax increases come into play next year and closing our Internet business. We ain't building anything else that we didn't build in the first place. I'm tired of feeding deadbeats.

And then it will start. First will be the 2nd Amd - get the guns - then he go after the 1st. and shut down talk radio. Then we should be in the streets starting all over again.

Anyone remember that story from a few days ago about the transgender individual who, while anatomically male, "self-identified" as a woman and had complete access to the woman's locker room at the local college. He/she let it all hang out, as it were, in full view of little girls.

Well from now on I plan on self-identifying as black and male. If someone objects and says, but you don't look/sound/act like a black man I'll just say: "that's sexist." Or maybe I'll say: "you're a racist." I can't decide, they both sound good.

Liberals create their own reality. And they bend over backwards to accomodate other liberals in their attempts to create reality.

Well, it's time to play their game. If Elizabeth Warren can be a Cherokee, then I can be Billy Dee Williams.

We need to smarten up and use the lib tactics right back at them.
Get lists of lib companies and boycott.
Get lists of lib colleges and boycott.
Form a WET (white entertainment network) and a White Caucus in Congress.
We should infiltrate all the transgender,gay,homo,undecided groups, mosques (yuck), peacenik and islam orgs on college campuses & elsewhere and scream racist and discrimination when they throw our lily white hetero Christian butts out.
File complaint after complaint against any teacher that bad mouths anything Christian or any of our founders. Lock up the ACLU/LA RAJA/CAIR in lawsuits fightin' us off.

obama isn't omnipotent and he buckles when he gets too much blowback. He lack Pelousi to run it through on reconciliation.

Start marching for an end to affirmative action which is diving the country. Those who can't compete now never will be able to under the same conditions that have kept them down and it isn't white conservatives.
At the very least, Whitey should follow the example of Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren. How many people aren't part something blooded.

If their are no guidelines on how much blood one needs to be what they claim to be, make them make them by changing your race. Dis Lizzy face any law breaking penalty? Get a PAC going to defend any who are picked off singly. The lawyers have no party when you wave money in their faces.

Okay, great. And as far as I'm concerned, two black families can work every single day through June to pay their "fair share" of income taxes so that my wife and I can each receive $40K-$50K in entitlements while permanently unemployed.

Works for me. If there's a better way to make black people Republicans, I surely don't know what it is!

In delivering aid to drought-stricken California last week, President Obama and his aides cited the state as an example of what could be in store for much of the rest of the country as human-caused climate change intensifies. But in doing so, they were pushing at the boundaries of scientific knowledge about the relationship between climate change and drought. While a trend of increasing drought that may be linked to global warming has been documented in some regions, including parts of the Mediterranean and in the Southwestern United States, there is no scientific consensus yet that it is a worldwide

President Barack Obama, in town since Friday and fresh off a meeting with Jordan´s King Abdullah II, left the Sunnylands estate Sunday morning for a little more golf. He didn´t have far to go. The destination was Porcupine Creek, the private golf course owned by Oracle co-founder and BNP Paribas owner Larry Ellison.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

SOCHI, Russia -- T.J. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and got the winner in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry. Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shootout. International rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie, one of the NHL´s shootout specialists.

Geneva — The United Nations mediator for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, wrapped up the second round of peace talks here on Saturday without breaking a longstanding deadlock or setting a date for a third round, and urged the parties to think seriously about their commitment to the negotiations. Mr. Brahimi said the talks had broken down primarily because the Syrian government balked at his suggestion that the negotiators discuss both sides’ top demands early on, rather than spending days on the government’s demands. “I am very, very sorry, and I apologize to the Syrian people,” Mr. Brahimi, an Algerian diplomat who has spent

According to a news release from the American Academy of Neurology, consuming foods that contain vitamin C may lower your risk of the most common kind of hemorrhagic stroke. Fruit and vegetables, like oranges, papayas, peppers, broccoli and strawberries, contain vitamin C. According to the American Stroke Association, hemorrhagic stroke accounts for approximately 13 percent of stroke cases. It results from a weakened vessel that ruptures and bleeds into the surrounding brain. The blood collects and compresses the surrounding brain tissue. The research involved 65 people who had dealt with an intracerebral hemorrhagic stroke. They were examined in contrast to

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — In a defeat for organized labor in the South, employees at the Volkswagen plant here voted 712 to 626 against joining the United Automobile Workers, even though the company did not oppose the unionization drive.

Two other German-owned plants, Mercedes-Benz in Alabama and BMW in South Carolina, have been among its top targets.

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.
