    I see MSNBC is sucking up to Rand Paul & the Republican Teabagger Party. No surprises here. Matthews: “Paul is the real thing.” Yes, a real bigot!

    Good Morning, Beautiful People! :-)

    • Good Morning, Ametia, Lisa & 3 Chics!

      What a night. White people mad because a black man in the White House. They couldn’t contain their feelings. This is a racist ass country.

      • Lisa MB says:


        Hit me this morning that folks are pissed off because they have waited TWO YEARS for the economy to turn around, or the wars we started to end, etc…

        Blacks folks been waiting TWO+ CENTURIES to just be considered equal. Folks who sat home pouting yesterday in protest will have lots more to cry about now.

      • Ametia says:

        Hi Lisa. Folks who screamed about changed, but they don’t really want President Obama leading the charge. White folks (Dems) and Indies sat home yesterday. We know they did, and so do they.

        We need to go to bootcamp and work on 2012 for our president. Screw the PL, GOP, Indies, and teabaggers!

      • Tell it, Lisa.

        Please tell these slackers something. The President needed US to help him not hurt him. He told us from the beginning that he couldn’t do it alone. Now here we are! Some were too worried about their own selfishness instead of banning together to stand behind this President. The time many spent bashing the President about “I didn’t get mine” could have been used to GOTV. No, they wanna be keyboard warriors and want things laid in their lap without the hard work.

        The Civil Rights Movement wouldn’t have ever happened if folks didn’t get down in the trenches and work for it. They had the battle scars to prove it. Ain’t a damn thing easy & no one is going to give us sh*t. Through hard work and determination with sufferings only did the Civil Rights Movement become a reality. If the keyboard warriors don’t want to get in the trenches… hell with them.

        Note to the tea party:The republicans may control the House but Dems control the Senate and the President has a veto pen mofos!
