Here's the thing. All some srmart person has to do is say the following " Romney cannot take a position, and Ryan's positions are outrageous not only to the liberals, but even some people on his side. Do we really need this kind of thing going on in the White House a this time?"

The second that happens, Obama gets his four years without question!

It certainly will give me pause in my own pick of Jill Stein.

Democrats can salivate all they want, but voters vote, not on issues, but on surface. Paul Ryan is a great technocrat. I'd worry.

See here's where we differ hon.

I take a look at the Nation and see a group of people who did the tmost amazing thing of all. Four years ago, they put aside racial and Ideological differences to elect a man who they believed would make a change. I believe that we can and will do it again.

You on the other hand think so poorly of your fellow humans, that you worry about them making mistakes that no poll or pundit see them making.

i dunno;
i wonder that most vote on gut feeling, emotion.
is that near what you intend by "surface" ?
first impression?

if you must worry, concentrate on the legislature. they direct force. the execs. are only supposed to enforce the law...

don't be afraid.
don't be very afraid.

and the narrator repeated in varied manner that nothing was certain.
but if you pay attention, you can't shit all over it, eh?


Nothing is certain except a mishmash of nonsequiturs can be disguised as a thoughtful sounding report on the success of black atheletes in the olympics. And then cover itself by adding a disclamer. Well, this all could be bullshit.

the prime non sequitur was your presentation:
Oh yeah slavery was good training for the 200M foot race!

that seems purely a figment of your imagination.
it was neither stated or implied on thevid.

the "the non-mutated version of alpha-actinin skeletal muscle isoform 3 gene " was offered as the advantage.
it was the statistics on the sprints, not
success of black atheletes in the olympics


more bleary eyed reasons, than the clear eyed voice of reason. :?

My "presentation" is called s-a-r-c-a-s-m and is deliberate. For example,

cynic you really need to go ahead and write that fan letter to the BBC.

or

Of all the genetic selection criteria that those Darwinian Nazi Eugenicists in the South in their gene doping laboratories could have favored for their slaves do you really think that they would choose being able to run real fast? Think about it.

Black people dominate sports because that's all they are told they have going for them. Take note that poor whites from eastern Europe do very good in basketball.

Cuba makes great baseball players, that our system steals from them. Another good reason to give ups to Cuban marxism. When you have less time to shop or envy Kim Kardashian you go out in the dirt and throw balls.

ez;
did you disaprove of the video?
i read your post as sarcasm, and that you found fault in it's fact or intended message.

i found no such fault, and assumed you had misheard or misinterpreted it's intent or message.

that still seems to be the case.

the slave trade was not held out as the driver of developing genetic traits advantageous to running a sprint.
Quite to the contrary, it was offered that a genetic feature lost to most that mutated away from west african heritage,
and consequently were at the disadvantage in a sprint.

indeed, throughout the video, the historical abuse of eugenics was stressed, and that future abuse should be guarded against.

what exactly was so inaccurate or offensive to you in the video?
