    do you think the question was meant in the context of direct payments to individuals and communities or do you feel it was more the way obama answered it…investments, etc.

    it was a great response to a question that generates too much rhetoric.

    I think many assume that it’s direct payment which i think would be a bad idea. I think Barack answered it in a ay that made ir much more palatable to the masses.

    George — I am loving your blog. I also LOVE the way Obama always show respect and care for his wife. They are very comfortable around each other and their affection do not see contrived at all. Genuine respect for each other. I’m new to the blog world. My blog is only 3 days old! You might find a post or two to be of interets to you. http://www.letustalk.wordpress.com.

    Do you self publish? Much respect!

    Well, now to see if Obama addresses this ongoing racism?

    What I say here is found in books that anyone can find on the Internet (www.amazon.com or http://www.bn.com) or rare bookstores. Do you realize that many women are supporting a group whose founder spoke highly of the Nazis’ practices and teachings in the 1930s and 1940s, and who wrote books with racists wordings and ugly eugenics practices, such as getting rid of those kids who were deformed or had genetic problems?

    What group and founder are I talking about? Let me give you some idea what this founder wrote in her books (yes, she is a woman). This female founder refers to people who are epileptics, feeble-minded, blind, deaf, mute, etc. as:

    –> “…this dead weight of human waste…” that is “…the terrific cost to the community…”

    This female says, “‘Constructive’ Eugenics…shows us that we are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all…”

    Lovely, isn’t it?

    And then she refers to these problem people this way:

    –> “Every single case of inherited defect, every malformed child, every congenitally tainted human being brought into this world is of infinite importance to that poor individual; but it is of scarcely less importance to the rest of us and to all of our children who must pay in one way or another for these biological and racial mistakes.”

    She also said that large families should kill some of their children so as to save “resources” for others.

    How about this idea which is similar to the Nazis’ propaganda during the 1930s?

    –> “On its scientific side, Eugenics suggest the reestablishment of the balance between the fertility of the “fit” and the “unfit.” ”

    In one of her publications, a magazine review, persons sympathetic to the Nazis’ practices and even German Nazis themselves wrote articles for her. In other documents, she refers to the supremacy of the white race over the other races. Isn’t great that she wrote side-by-side with those Nazis?

    What are these books and materials to which I refer?

    “The Pivot of Civilization”

    “Woman and the New Race”

    “The Birth Control Review”

    Who is the author of this trash?
    Who is this supporter of the Nazi eugenic practices?

    MARGARET SANGER
    Founder of PLANNED PARENTHOOD

    Do people think that Jewish women are blind to Margaret Sanger’s promotion of racial eugenics? Let me quote something from her that both she and Planned Parenthood standby:

    –> “By education, by persuasion, by appeals to racial ethics and religious motives, the ardent Eugenicist hopes to increase the fertility of the “fit.” ”

    Planned Parenthood refers to her as a Woman of Valor. Do you like that term? Not all of us Jewish women are now blind to what Planned Parenthood is doing to women all over the world. Are you?

    AND note also that the Gay / Lesbian Groups ALL support Planned Parenthood WITHOUT any reservations also!

    What I don’t understand is this; I was once in a conversation with a man and the topic of the elections came up. I asked which candidate he was going to vote for. He said nothing, but instead, pulled is bare forearm up to his gaze and then said “Democrat”. I was appalled. I thought “How could a member of a minority vote on racist lines?” It was then and there that my naive self learned that racism knows no bounds.

    I bought your book “One Black Man’s thought”

    I thought this would be just a lecture.
    Like so many writers before
    But after reading “One Black Mans Thoughts”
    and then reading it some more.
    I realized it was just my conjecture …

    A really fun to read and informative set of Poems.
