Dec 1st 2011 1:46PM Thank you!! I love it when someone with more than a room temperature IQ posts.
Dec 1st 2011 1:39PM I agree. Something just doesn't add up here.

May 3rd 2011 12:46PM Donald Trump doesnt hold any elective offices nor is he likely to. Private citizens arent required to release anything. He was looking for publicity and he got plenty of it-he's a happy man.
We have an expectation of presidential candidates that they will release documentation concerning their backgrounds in order that the people may fully evaluate the candidates' credentials. Other presidents have done this as a matter of routine.
How smart was it to allow this issue to fester and grow into the whole birther mess? If he had nothing to hide, nothing to be ashamed of...just release it. Refusing to do so for so gave rise to the notion that there is something sneaky and deceitful about the man. Unfortunately for him, that's not going to go away now that there are so many people who are deeply invested in proving there's something wrong with his qualifications.
Bad judgement call on his part.
Mar 25th 2011 7:51PM I think it's a worthwhile measure to protect the security of our elections. The poor, elderly and students have a responsibility to keep their documentation in good order just like everybody else.
Mar 23rd 2011 7:13PM Nic Cage didnt go to jail because he cooperated with the IRS and started unloading his properties to settle his bill. Had he been defiant and taken the issue to trial and generally created a three ring circus like Wesley Snipes did, he no doubt would have gone to jail as well. I hated that happened to Wesley, but he brought it on himself.
That being said, celebrities do have to pay a hell of a lot; I feel for them, seeing that massive amount of money flowing out.
Jan 10th 2011 6:51AM Gary and James Ward: it's a waste of time and energy to post your thoughtful, truthful rebuttals to the article. No one here is going to acknowledge the truth of what you said-it's just too satisfying to holler out AMEN to any trifling crap Boyce Watkins makes up. It stokes up the feelings of grievance and victimhood.
This article was a new low-even for him.
There are forums with thoughtful, intelligent black posters whose views are worthy of respect and discussion. BW isnt one of them.
Dec 24th 2010 2:50AM My God! Didnt he get the memo??? Doesnt he know he's not allowed to have any positions that deviate from the Official Black Thought Manifesto?
Destroy this evil tool of the white man quickly! Cant have any negroes straying from the plantation of Monolithic Black Thought!
Dec 20th 2010 4:31PM Interesting. What is possibly the world's most expensive Christmas tree, in one of the most conservative Muslim countries.
Perhaps they should have put up replicas of Twin Towers and decorated those to further gladden the hearts of all Muslims.

What's dumb about that? Demand is what drives the smuggling and supply of drugs in this country. No demand=no drug cartels. Some of us choose to not feed the beast by using illegal drugs, ever. Is that dumb? You may think so, but some people have principles and act on them.
