....For the last 50 years, the stock market has generally done better under Democrats in White House, even though I usually vote Repub. Market was bad under Regean, Bush Sr., Bush Jr. Clinton years were good for the market. The market did head south for the last year of Clinton's 8 years. Comments?
In a conversation recently I asked a friend if he agreed that it was racist to vote against a candidate based only on their color. Ignoring a candidates positions and qualifications is closed minded and bordering on bigotry. The friend is black and suggested that the history of hatred in this country made that a sad but true mindset.
The conviction drained away when I asked him why over 90% of the polled Blacks are voting for the black candidate. Blacks seem to miss the fact that racism is a two way street.
Today the leader of the Black Congressional Caucus suggested the bailout needed more provisions to aid his community. The leader of the White Caucus...oh, that's right, a white caucus would be racist. Just tired of the hypocrisy.
