Can you believe our Muslim president compares himself to Lincoln? That quote is so far from what hussein is doing.

That is a great letter by the way. If only our government, our people followed that advice.

The words you will never hear Dumbo Hussein say. Hussein is all about class hatred and taking from the workers. ======================================= "You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."

Thought provoking. These are concepts that can be applied to our everyday life. Exactly the kind of thing we learned from our grandparents. Thanks Mr. Call.

Eventually, when Americans find that every person in the world is entitled to a job in the USA ( except for us citizens) all in the name of diversity. When they find themselves a dirt poor minority in the country their fathers founded. When they find out that diversity is not THEIR strength, but the strength of their enemies. Forced "diversity" is our biggest weakness. To libs, "diversity" means absence of white males. If you take their diversity argument to its logical conclusion, they believe all in a certain group think alike and do things alike. That's stupidity, given how many stupid whites voted for Obama at least once. That also fits THEIR definition of racism, doesn't it?

I don't see what your comments have to do with the topic Tay, except to add fuel to the hatred fire. Have you been wounded, lost a job or been discriminated against because of a call for diversity?

Answer NOPE

Why don't you tell us all more about how diversity did you wrong and how it relates to the strength of America or its President.
