What They Really Think

Amazing what happens when they let the mask slip:
  • Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
Michelle Obama spent most of today backtracking away from her words when the right side of the spectrum lit into her.

We're just wondering if certain segments of the voting population actually listen to what she's saying.

When Obama was a crackhead was he just using or selling as well?

Speaking of Mr. Obama:

The 005th district had a gallery celebrating Black History Month in a display case. Among the photos were respected black figures both alive and dead. That's all good and fine. However, front and center, and the largest photo in the entire case was: Obama.

Should the department or any unit within it be pandering to politicians? This looked like an endorsement to me.

Funny...today, it was down.

Barack Obama Bin-Laden says---

You will have to learn to work much harder when I am elected Califate. Allah is a demanding deity.

Michelle will be silent after the election. She will not be hear from and she will only be seen in a burqua.

Hey SCC, great blog! Thanks for the time that you put into it.
I think that it is time for you and some of your readers to hear this AGAIN.

Not all "...segments of the voting population..." (I read that as minority; and minority as mainly black and/or receiving some type of public assistance.) are on public assistance.

Not all minorities live in the ghetto. All people that live in the ghetto are not savages, animals, or any of the other pejoratives that have been frequently used here to describe that "...segment of the population...". All people that live in the ghetto are not even all minorities!

Not all minorities are ignorant 40oz drinking, gold tooth wearing, wanna be rapper, baby making machines. It's unfair to judge minorities by the picture the MEDIA paints or even by what you might see if you work in a "ghetto" district. If that were a fair assessment then under the same rules minorities might be led to believe that all non-minority/white people are naive, tree hugging, no dancing, Bush loving, card carrying members of the KKK who can get a bank loan for anything they want regardless of credit history or income. This is what a minority officer might see if they worked in a predominately white district. Is that an accurate observation? Hell no! The bottom line is to remember that a middle class black girl who goes to Harvard doesn't make the news papers until she grows into a woman like Michelle Obama but, a 12 year old black boy who shoots three people outside of his grammar school in a dispute over Doritoes does. So do all of the neighborhood "expert witnesses" who have a difficult time forming complete and coherent sentences. We should all be painfully aware of the role the media plays in shaping public opinion. Lets all be mindful of the messenger trying to sell the paper that the message is printed on.

Not all minorities need or want handouts in the form of merit promotions, a reverend's clout or other such preferential treatment. Some of us (GASP...)are actually qualified with common sense, book sense, and police sense!

Since I'm on a roll; let me write a little something about the reverends. PAY ATTENTION!
JESSE JACKSON AND AL SHARPTON ET AL. DO NOT SPEAK FOR ALL BLACK PEOPLE! Got that!? Black people can and do speak for themselves. It's just difficult for their true voices to be heard over the rhetoric being spouted by the camera and microphone loving charlatans who proclaimed themselves to be the spokespersons for black people everywhere. The media loves a spectacle and the aforementioned mouthpieces almost always deliver. Spectacle + media = sales. You get the picture? I knew that you would.
SCC, I appreciate your indulgence.
To answer your question; yes, a lot of minorities hear and comprehend what she is saying. A lot more agree with her. Are my eyes deceiving me SCC or was that tacit approval of something a democRAT said?

Mrs. Obama did not say anything wrong. She did not say she was not proud of her country. She said this campaign has made her really proud of her country, considering that Americans of all backgrounds are supporting Barack Obama as a candidate. And not as a "black candidate" is really special when you look at the history of the United States. So, don't start any racial nonsense.

Michelle Obama's statement was just typical left wing pandering, and it won't have any impact on her husband's campaign. That's the type of thing you say to make the Oprah audience applaud; empty, factless, superficial liberal rhetoric.

Now, all of the sudden, she's proud to be an American. I guess she wasn't proud when her husband was elected, or when Clinton was elected.

That's what separates conservatives from the fascists; I was always proud to be American, proud in our triumphs and mistakes. I guess libs are only proud when things are going their way...

Why doesn't Senator Obama do a little work? He voted present most of the time while in the Illinois State Senate. He hardly ever votes anymore in the U.S. Senate. You would think that he would be a little bit more conscientious since he's the first term junior Senator from Illinois. He's been a do nothing Senator with somewhat slippery connections. Why would we want him for our President?

It is all the fault of the dirty white man, he is the problem with this country. I don't blame Obama for not acknowledging the Pledge of Alligance or for not wearing a lapel pin of the U.S.Flag. When you are as anti-American and a rat shit like he and his American hating bitch wifey you can justify anything expecially to the Oprah Suburban Dumb Blonds Association.

Big business runs it, the Military Complex that Eisenhower said to be aware of. ( yep its here).
If you think Obama or anyone of the other candidates is going to be King like Bush,think again.
Personal belief, people are fed up with the whole system and the candidates fostered upon them. Its the News media who makes the next president and takes us lambs to the slaughter.
Just pisses me off that people in any union or organization would vote for someone because their leader says so. Yet, it happens,thats the ignorance, same thing as race.
Many of you don't know when Harod Washington was mayor that the big cry,was NOW ITS OUR TURN!Ya, its true,but he wasn't stupid to alienate populance and it won't happen with Obama if he gets into office either.
I'm a Roosevelt era baby and this the first election that I may have to flip a coin because the candidates such.

Not all minorities live in the ghetto. All people that live in the ghetto are not savages...

-----------------------------------

Very well put. I hope you understand its difficult for us (who work in the ghetto) to see the good that does exist there, as it is rendered all but invisible by the lack of respect for life, apathy, materialism and , dare I say, evil that we are forced to confront our entire tour. We are besiged by the evil in those areas from all sides and all times. I hope you can understand how that shortens our sight.

When I worked in 015 mids, for the last 30 of the tour we used to park on a certain block sometimes (it was the quietest on our beat in between 0630 & 0700, at any other time it was usually mayhem). An old lady used to come out on her porch to drink coffee then. She would wave to us and we to her. I realized that this was the only time this senior could sit on the porch of her own home and enjoy a cup of coffee without the threat of physical harm from the "thug state" that is austin. I have been offered Coffee from seniors in there imacculate homes who were reporting domestic battery from their own grandchildren. I have been invited to thanksgiving dinner from a foster mother of a "frequent flyer" missing juvenile thug. It was a happy day for I, my pard and she when we finally locked that kid up for something that would keep him in audy.

Thanks for the reminder. I needed that, a lot of us do from timt to time.

As simple-minded as it may sound, it IS the fucking media promoting much of the divisive race-bating, economic/class animosity and the 'entitlement' mentality of whatever 'a certain segment' of the population really means.

The 'media' is, however, not merely serving it's own interests, but also the interests of those who provide the media with a substantial portion of it's income, namely, advertisers.

Whether we are speaking of print media, broadcast media, internet media, etc., the propaganda flows steadily from many sources.

Politics and Business are interwoven so tightly that it's often difficult to tell the difference between the two.

The Media, in all it's various forms, is the vehicle of communicating the agendas of Politics and Business.

Some of these agendas are not only legitimate, but beneficial to our society's health and wellbeing; others are not.

It's up to each individual citizen to discern the difference.

It's the size of mass media which allows it to be so dominating.

The loudest voice is usually the most listened to, even when that voice is everything BUT the voice of reason.

Thank you for being a voice of reason.

Michele Obama should stop speaking her anti-American remarks. Both she and her husband will take this country to the shit-can. Hillarious and her cigar-sucking hubby is not much better. We are doomed if Democrats get in the white house. There will be no middle class after we are all taxed to death for all the give-aways to the poor and down-trodden. ....this will become a socialist country before our kids grow up. The rich will survive because their rich and the politicians will suck off the teat of the rich and make sure they and their families will survive. Obama speaks such rhetoric like he is the second coming of Christ or JFK and all the liberal, brain-dead idiots are eating this up. The only Change Obama will bring is more taxes and a socialistic government. Obama probably can't remember the last time he voted in the senate or what he voted on...the guy can speak a good line, but won't have a clue on how to run a country. Watch out.

President Dwight Eisenhower-R and President John Fitzgerald Kennedy-D both warned of the power of the military industrial complex and its ability to destroy the USA.

No one listened to them then and now its almost too late.

The international bankers and warmongers will not usher in a world of peace and happiness but a world of tyranny,oppression,slavery and death.

Obama,Clinton and McCain are all bought and paid for puppets that will do whatever their masters bide them to do.

How can somebody be racist against Obama when he claims all religions and has all ethical backgrounds.

What I find funny is that Obama got into his political offices by other candidates dropping out due to some kind of domestic dispute. This applies to both Democratic candidates as well as Republican canidates.

This is great,here are some comments from civil rights leader/icon Andrew Young on Bill Clinton and Barak Obama.

In an interview posted online, Young, 75, said Bill Clinton "is every bit as black as Barack" and "He's probably gone with more black women than Barack."

Maybe Andrew Young knows the real truth about Obama? Obama is on the downlow.

Coppers are always complaining about the people we serve. But the postings on this blog shows that the problems arise due to coppers treating everyone in a neighborhood like jagoffs,even when that person is not a jagoff. Those coppers doing the most complaining are the same ones who'll ride on your job and start sh*t when you have things under control. We appreciate their back-up,but keep your mouth shut. By the way tell me the difference between a liberal and a conservative.
