Some Folk Say The Better Candidate Don’t Always Win At Election Time

Ok that is so true but only when it is shown why one say sometimes the better candidate do not win.

Some will say the better candidate didn’t win because they just like them or close friends with them.

I think it is misleading to say sometimes the better candidate didn’t win without stating the reason why so that it can be debatable.

If I am going to publicly support a candidate or feel a certain candidate is the better candidate, I am going to state my reason why.

Rioting, Elections, Hope

I look at the root cause to how and why someone respond. Nope don’t make it right but I sympathize with the oppressed.

Elections are another subject for another day for me. Hell elections are like the microwave age, they want justice right now and not have to wait until major elections to bring about a change. What happens while they are waiting for an election?

I condone violence always have and always will however since black folks ain’t in control of much of anything, where is the hope? These folks whom choose violence obviously have no hope. Don’t make it right, but to those whom are willing to pay the price they obviously feel acting out is their road to hope and/or the end! Just my ignant opinion!

Butterfield speaks to NCCU students on race, inequality, elections – The Herald Sun

DURHAM — U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, D-1st, championed investment in education as a means to repair the “damage that has been done” to African-Americans by slavery in a guest lecture at N.C. Central University on Friday.

Butterfield, from the eastern North Carolina city of Wilson, represents part of Durham County. He is an NCCU alumnus who attended the school as an undergraduate and as a law student.

During the guest lecture, Butterfield spoke on income inequality along racial lines, the history of slavery and its impact, as well as on the November elections. He said that while America has tried to address issues of race, poverty and inequality, all efforts “have failed.” (Source: Read more)

What to know before you vote: NC has new rules Read – News & Observer

The final tally is in: More people cast early ballots for Tuesday’s primary than they did in the last mid-term elections, in 2010.

The count, released Sunday by the state Board of Elections, shows 268,298 early votes. Most of that – 258,780 – was one-stop voting. The 2010 total was 172,972.

There were fewer days to vote early this year, because of a new law. But that obviously didn’t slow things down.

The party breakdown shows Democrats voted in higher numbers than the statewide percentage of people registered in that party: 47.8 percent of the early ballots cast were by registered Democrats; 42 percent of the registered voters are Democrats. (Source: Read more)

Ann Romney Said She Didn’t Know Why Women Wanted To Make The Same Money As Men

Well damn for the white women back in the day the white male was the bread winner so the wives could do minor work and they could live good. However the Black woman had to work as hard as the Black man in order for both of them to make it. Hell ain’t you heard about a Black woman having a baby and working in the fields up to the time to have the baby and went right back to work immediately after having the baby.

The sad part is some Black folks will agree with Ann but that means they are just ignant because they don’t understand or they are in denial.

Damn I be glad when the election is over because I am so sick and tired of ignant damn conversations from so-called educated folks. Well!

Good debates should inform, not entertain – Rocky Mount Telegram

Response: This is right on point! Like I said I concerned about the facts.

Millions of Americans have tuned in to view the first presidential and only vice presidential debates of the 2012 election campaign.

The debates can provide a great opportunity to see the candidates in an unscripted setting, answering questions on the spur of the moment and having to react quickly to their opponent’s assertions. Regardless of one’s partisan allegiances, people can draw a lot from these one-on-one televised encounters.

At their worst, candidate debates can devolve into simple name-calling, counter-claims about facts and over exaggerated gestures and body language. But at their best, these question-and-answer sessions can provide serious and informative discussions of the pressing issues and challenges that confront the nation.

This year’s first two debates fell somewhere in the middle. Republican Mitt Romney was animated but vague in laying out his ideas for the future of the country. President Obama seemed to have barely showed up, offering little defense of his record and fewer details about his future plans.

The vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan offered a much more spirited, issues-orientated exchange, with each candidate defending their running mate’s records and policies in a swift, back-and-forth discussion.

But media coverage and public reaction so far unfortunately has focused mainly on the candidates’ performance rather than on the substance of their remarks in the debates. Next-day discussions of the debates mainly centered on the president’s flat performance and the vice president’s smiles and laughter.

Two debates remain between the presidential contenders. The candidates owe it to voters to engage in a much more serious discussion of the issues than we’ve seen so far.
