Good information but an additional fact to consider is that a lot of the White Working Class voted voted for Obama...especially in the crucial state of Ohio....thus it was not just a matter of the whites who stayed home rather than voted.

Ohio is a union state. Please don't lump me in with the white working class union morons. They do what they are told, and they are told to vote democrat.

Are you still trying to build that strawman?
You claim racial quotas, but the words racial and quota do not come up in a word search,.
If there is something specific you want me to read, then freakin post it, I am not in the mood to play games or help you do your homework.


Did you miss it...I posted the link above>>>>>>www.nytimes.com/1990/08/01/opinion/l-hiring-quotas-exist-but-employers-won-t-tell-451590.html

What did I say about doing your damned homework?
If you have something specific you want me to read, then copy and paste the paragraph, I'm not reading an entire article searching for the point you're trying to make, do your own work!

OK,yes, I read it earlier and if you don't produce actual law, then I will have no other choice but to conclude you are an Idiot.
What part of fact vs opinion do you not understand? Give me solid facts and lose the BS, or I might start thinking you're in your teens.

Don't like to read eh?  heh heh   Well as is known one can lead a jackass to water but one cannot make him drink.

Irregardless......where you are drawing a blank is the fact you cannot understand how affirmative action is alledged or supposed to work and how it actually works in the real world.

In a nutshell what it comes down to is that in order to avoid being accused of discrimination and or expensive lawsuits based on alleged discrimination in the workplace....business owners are compelled to hire a specified number of minorities to prove they do not discriminate...the usual goal is around l5 percent.

Thus whilst the liberals will tell you there is no quota system....in truth there is.  If you cannot understand that I cannot help you.

OK, you are officially an idiot on this forum.

I said back up your claim, and all you've managed to post is opinion pieces from none other than a liberal rag the NY Times.

I will repeat, we are a forum based in truth and facts, you have produced quite the opposite, you have posted emotional opinion pieces. I have booted libs for this same reason.
I stated earlier, we are an well established forum based in truth, your BS does nothing to advance the cause, though it does show one thing, not all who claim the title Conservative, actually rise to the occasion of thinking individual.

One other point, there is no such word as irregardless, it is regardless, your word is redundant to say the least.
Kind of along the lines of calling you a stupid idiot, idiot would suffice.

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  You give yourself way toooooo much importance and name calling does not enhance your image.  I am a True Conservative which in your world would probably translate as 'radical' or 'extremist'....remember what Barry Goldwater said about extremism aka  "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice---and modertion in the pursuit of justice is no virtue" or sumptin like dat.

I am often attacked for using the woid....'Irregardless'----- usually though it is by liberals....hmmmmmmmmm

As any veteran of the boards understands...when someone resorts to attempting to be a grammar cop or calling you a bigot or a racist that is a sure sign they are losing an argument....which in most cases is also usually a liberal tactic. 

Irregardless......here is my rationale concerning the woid  "Irregardless"


Not only is "irregardless" a word, but it's probably the best word of all time. Here's why.


 "irregardless" is a woid. It is, at least according to Merriam-Webster and Scrabble.

But I'm not going to stop there. No. I would also like to contend that "irregardless" is the baddest-ass word of all time. This is for several reasons, which I will now explain.
 

1.It's the only word where attaching the "ir-" prefix to the root word has the exact same meaning as the root word: Throwing an "ir-" in front of normal, less bad-ass words that begin with "R" changes the meaning to the opposite of the word. Irrefutable. Irreverent. Irrelevant. Irresponsible. Not "irregardless." It doesn't care what the rules of grammar are. It means exactly the same thing as "regardless," and that's the way it likes it.
 


2.Against all odds, against all logic, and (ir)regardless of everyone hating it, it has achieved official word status: How can you not pull for the underdog in this case? "Irregardless" went up against the rules of grammar, stick-by-the-book lexicographers, and the fact that it's a completely redundant word. Didn't matter. Whatever didn't kill it made it stronger. It's the hardest-working word in the dictionary, and it should have earned your respect by now.
 


3.Even though it's a word, Merriam-Webster says you shouldn't use it: Can you name another word in the dictionary that the dictionary says you shouldn't use? Even really bad swear words don't have a dictionary-imposed boycott. That just makes me want to use it more.



4.It simultaneously makes sense and doesn't make sense: You can think of the word in one of two ways: (1) it should mean the opposite of "regardless," or something along the lines of "keeping the facts in regard," or (2) it could mean "regardless of the fact that something is regardless." The latter of the two is like double-super regardless, and it's the meaning I prefer. "Irregardless" really, really doesn't care what the facts are or what you think. It should only be used in extreme circumstances, such as when a course of action is ridiculously counterintuitive. "Irregardless of the fact that you are very thirsty, you should eat this pile of salt." Stuff like that.
 


5.It practices what it preaches: Irregardless of the rules of grammar, "irregardless" is a word. It's self-reflexive. It's the exception that proves the rule. It talks the talk and walks the walk. Is there another word like that? No, because "irregardless" is bad-ass. It is a text-based Chuck Norris, roundhouse-kicking everything else in the dictionary into submission.
 


6.If you think about it long enough, it will blow your mind: It's the Mobius Strip of words, but it's also packed with Eminem's aggressively apathetic attitude. It's completely unique, completely confusing, and it couldn't give a rat's ass about any of that. It just is what it is. If you don't like it, don't use it.

Hey...I am having fun here....and I will continue to do so until the phonies pull the plug on me.  I love it when they do that....cuz I know for damn sure I told some truth and it hit them right between the eyes.

And they claim to be 'Real Conservatives'  bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I have seen liberals more tolerant of the truth.
