Why is the Obama administration so upset with this round of documents and weren't even concerned...or that's how it appeared.....about the first group of documents that were leaked? Maybe because the first group were about former administrations and this group of documents includes his administration? GO VIKINGS!!!

hillary looked bad, like that's not hard to do, in the latest leaks.  that is why the administration has their panties in a wad.

Did you tell them this before or AFTER you hit it ;D

Delete them, block the user and thank God for saving you an even bigger headache :nod:

Nah, I have not slept with any of them.  For some reason, I attract a lot of women who are looking for a husband. 

I don't bother blocking folks on Facebook anymore because they just create new accounts and try to dig up dirt on me by hitting up random people on my friends list.   ::)

Block your friends list.  :shrug:

I don't know why I never thought of that.   :brickwall:  *blocked*

you are from north carolina and living in mississippi.  they can't handle the north carolina, especially the fayetteville, charm.   i know it's a burden at times.  remember, they will always want you.

the only ones holding up extending unemployment are democrats.  they won't put it to the vote.  put the extension on a stand alone vote.  let the american people see who is really holding things up.  why are the democrats afraid to put unemployment on a stand alone vote.

Woman Fingerprinted. Mrs. Rosa Parks, Negro Seamstress, whose Refusal to Move to the Back of a Bus Touched off the Bus Boycott in Montgomery, Ala., 1956

Rosa Parks: "Why do you push us around?"
Officer: "I don't know but the law is the law and you're under arrest."


On the evening of December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, an African American, was arrested for disobeying an Alabama law requiring black passengers to relinquish seats to white passengers when the bus was full. Blacks also were required to sit at the back of the bus. Her arrest sparked a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system and led to a 1956 Supreme Court decision banning segregation on public transportation.

Rosa McCauley was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. In 1932,  she married Raymond Parks and with his encouragement earned a high school diploma. The couple was active in the Montgomery Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). While working as a seamstress, Mrs. Parks served as chapter secretary and, for a time, as advisor to the NAACP Youth Council. Denied the right to vote on at least two occasions because of her race, Rosa Parks also worked with the Voters League in preparing blacks to register.

Following the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the NAACP choose Rosa Parks to attend a desegregation workshop at the Highlander Folk School in Monteagle, Tennessee. Reflecting on that experience, Parks recalled, "At Highlander I found out for the first time in my adult life that this could be a unified society…I gained there the strength to persevere in my work for freedom not just for blacks, but for all oppressed people."

Although her arrest was not planned, Park's action was consistent with the NAACP's desire to challenge segregated public transport in the courts. A one-day bus boycott coinciding with Parks's December 5 court date resulted in an overwhelming African-American boycott of the bus system. Since black people constituted seventy percent of the transit system's riders, most busses carried few passengers that day.

The success of the boycott mandated sustained action. Religious and political leaders met at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church and formed the Montgomery Improvement Association (later the Southern Christian Leadership Conference). Dexter's new pastor, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., was appointed the group's leader. For the next year, the Montgomery Improvement Association coordinated the bus boycott and King, an eloquent young preacher, inspired those who refused to ride:

If we are wrong—the Supreme Court of this nation is wrong. If we are wrong—God almighty is wrong! If we are wrong—Jesus of Nazareth was merely a utopian dreamer and never came down to earth. If we are wrong—justice is a lie. And we are determined here in Montgomery to work and fight until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream."
Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Montgomery, Alabama, 1955.

In December 1956 the Supreme Court banned segregation on public transportation and the boycott ended over a year after it had begun. Rosa and Raymond Parks moved to Detroit where, for more than twenty years, the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement" worked for Congressman John Conyers. In addition to the Rosa Parks Peace Prize (Stockholm, 1994) and the U.S. Medal of Freedom (1996), Rosa Parks has been awarded two-dozen honorary doctorates from universities around the world.

Rosa Parks died on October 24, 2005, at the age of ninety-two, at her home in Detroit, Michigan. On October 30, 2005, Parks became the first woman to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

unemployment is expiring.  businesses have no clue what their tax rates will be next month.  yet this democrat gets on the senate floor and talks about a football game that the whole nation already knows who won.  he doesn't have to waste time.  he could have just submitted it into the records.

where is jesse and al.  my bad.  the chinese government won't pay them.  not only should american workers do the work, there should be blacks working on this.  the granite should have come from martin luther king's home state of georgia.  this whole project is wrong on so many levels.

the unions need to picket the sight 24/7.  this would have never happened in new york city.  cousin guido would have something to say.

you people said he couldn't cut spending.  so he froze the pay.

why not talk tax cuts with the gop.  when was the last time the feds raised taxes during a recession.

cutting employment during a recession is wrong.  he will push to extend them.

president obama will move to the center.  he won't sell the farm to do it.  just like clinton.

That was the "so called" blacks leaders talking that chit.  I did not know who BHO was when he first ran for President.  After seeing more of him then I became more impressed.  But hardly no 'average" black american knew who BHO before he ran for President.  Hillary Clinton was the better known product.

wrong again ken.  the only one that was an obama supporter on this board from day one was cholly.  before obama announced he would run cholly stated he would support him for president.  the posters on this board were lockstep with the so called black leaders.  you included.

i think she was working for the insurance company.  i'm out on worker's comp.  my employer has a history of spying on people on worker's comp.  in the furniture store i noticed she was always in the way and never looked at me.  i even told her in the furniture store 'excuse me' and she moved over and never looked up nor said a word.  when i went to the salvation army store she had a shopping cart with nothing in it.  she never touched anything in the store.  she didn't follow me out of the store.  she didn't follow me home.  i made a few detours along the way. 

they have even followed mrs. y.  if it is a man tailing her she will call the local police and say she is being stalked.  she has gotten good at reading a license plate through the rear view mirror.

DALLAS - Former President George W. Bush has pledged not to publicly criticize his successor, Barack Obama, but he did offer some praise Monday during a live broadcast on Facebook to promote his new book.

Bush participated in an hour-long discussion on Facebook Live with the site's founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and was asked what he thought the current administration was handling well. The former president responded that he liked Obama's policy on Afghanistan.

"I think the idea of putting more troops in was something that I can applaud," Bush said. "I also appreciate some of the education position. As I understand it they do believe strongly that accountability is necessary in order to achieve excellence in the classrooms."

As the discussion started, Zuckerberg asked Bush why he decided to appear on Facebook. Bush quipped: "Because you've got a lot of people paying attention to us, and I'm trying to sell books."

He then told Zuckerberg that he loves entrepreneurship and a country that could help make someone like Zuckerberg able to realize his dream and, in turn, create jobs for many people. "Yours is a really interesting company, and plus: I'm shamelessly marketing," he said.

Bush, whose book, "Decision Points," was released earlier this month, visited Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., fielding questions from Zuckerberg, Facebook employees and those watching online who submitted questions during the broadcast on the company's streaming video channel.

After the conversation turned to the recent release of more than a quarter-million classified diplomatic files posted by WikiLeaks, Bush said, "Leaks are very damaging and people who leak ought to be prosecuted."  eric holder is 100 percent right.

strike, according to the u.s. constitution she is qualified to be president. 

it is amazing that the majority of democrats and liberals on this board did not think barack hussein obama was qualified to be president when he announced in 2007.  you people were saying it was hillary's time.  he should wait till 2016.  he hadn't paid his dues.  he needs more experience.  you people are nothing but bandwagon obama lovers.
