That's Only For White People. Wait... What?

3 weeks ago, while at the laundromat, I was chatting with a lady who works there. She had the news on. and a story about ObamaCare came on. I had been filling her in on a few things in the past about this tax, and she looked them up, and dug around for herself and got educated.

As we where talking, a black woman over heard what we where saying. When I went back to check my cloths in the dryer...next to a table where she was folding her things..she made a comment to me...'That's only for white people'.

I ask her wtf was she talking about. It seems she was informed, she said, that Democrats are exempt from the payments. And then she said..'And Democrats are all black'. I told her she better inform the Clintons and the Kennedy family...they been under the impression they be white. She ask me if I was a Republican...I told her HELL NO..Im a Libertarian who happens to believe in the Constitution.

After 10 minutes of trying to inform her, and her biggest argument with me being..YOUR RACIST..
I ask the lady if she would look up one thing on the net..and listen to it..she agreed. I told her go to Youtube and watch

Know the TRUTH about the Government Health Care Bill H.R.320

Yesterday I ran back into the lady at the laundromat. She said she watched the video, but didn't understand it. But her son, who's in high school, did. And he started checking it out. After he explained it to her, he did his own research. Long story short....their trying to wake up their entire family and all their friends now. I just smiled and thanked her as I walked out the door.

In the past 2 weeks, Ive also gotten through to 5 cashiers, 2 waitresses, a guy that was thinking about joining the Army..hes not joining now he says, and only 3 out of those 8 where white...the other 5 where black or Mexican (legal) And yep..Im patting myself on the back...

Effective communication.

Any thoughts on your part about work in journalism or teaching? Such talented communication abilities should not go to waste!

Somewhere there is a website or tutorial service with your name on it!

If, for example you enter journalism, you will be building upon what these men have begun, now that the "mainstream media" is (after far too long), circling the drain!

Wow

That's really something special. You must have a gift. Keep it Up!!!

Awesome

Awesome job. Now if those 10 people start paying that forward, we would have a snowball effect in no time :)

Two full days of laundry?

Been there and done that.

I am a procastinater too.

If I had to travel I would probably just pick up an entire rack or two at Goodwill every month or so and then donate them back, let them wash my clothes and then buy them back for a few bucks.

God Bless.

Rofl!

Sure beats going down to the river or breaking out the washboard. :P

Lol

Never thought of that, Pretty good idea,lol Well it looks like you got your answer from the mayor, It's out of my influence man. Sorry about that Scott.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

That's ok

Thanks for the effort.

I figured this was a shot in the dark.

I guess I am no longer able to post OPs.

Regardless, I appreciate you and your comments.

All of them.

Do you think I was too harsh in my response? (Not the one above, the other one)

I respect your opinion.

God Bless.

Now that you asked

Yes I think so, and this is what maybe always getting you in trouble my friend. I realize it is just your nature but you have a habit of always adding a last minute "Stab" like "I think I am beginning to feel sorry for you". Since you asked my opinion, that statement probably could have just been left unsaid man. You were doing pretty well up to that point. I realize you are right in feeling you should be able to speak your mind but then again we are in someone else's home. I have always found it is probably not a good practice to kick a gift horse in the mouth? Sometimes we just have to bite our lip and appreciate what we do get? Make sense?

I knew that when I wrote the last line.

In fact I thought about that line for a few minutes before I hit "post".

But it was honest, so I always error on that side.

It was sincere, honest, and I really did not mean anything negative, but I knew it would be taken that way.

I can appreciate that

I can appreciate the honesty and principles you try to display. But did not that one line complete render the whole previous plea in the post null and void? You canceled out everything you had just expressed right?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Possibly.

If Mr. Nystrom is offended by the comment then yes, I have rendered my entire comment ignored and forgotten because of the last line.

But there are other outcomes as well.

Like an honest reassessment.

With respect to the DP, I am a cornered cat at this point.

I have nothing to lose.

And everthing to gain.

And despite how egomaniacal it sounds ...

The DP is in the same boat.

Mr. Nystrom has a choice ...

A. The DP can become a propaganda tool and thrive ...

B. It can wither and die ...

C. It can chart a path onto uncharted territory and possibly become a pioneer.

(C) is how it was born. Mr. Nystrom feels like his choices are now (A) or (B), when in fact (C) is still an option.

But nothing can be gained...

But nothing can be gained if you bite the hand that feeds you. And it seems you do indeed crave the food handed out here at the DP or you would have walked away the first time right? At some point might you take self responsibility for the decision to return fully knowing the terms? Like you I come here because it is indeed one of the freest places to express one's self on the net.

In reality, there are very few terms to respect, but there are terms. You agreed to these terms when you signed the contract to become part of it. Myself, I take full responsibility for the position I have placed myself in here. I agreed to the terms and can only blame myself if I breech that contract and bear the brunt of the terms and enforcement of those terms. I made my own bed, if it is uncomfortable I can only blame myself.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

and which term did I breech?

I posted according to the terms.

My title was edited.

I did not like it so I edited it back, which was my choice.

It was not on the front page. I knew it wasn't going up there.

I did not know it was Mr. Nystrom. Otherwise I would not have edited it back.

What exactly did I do to breech the agreement?

That is my whole point.

OK an analogy

Now that you explained what happened I understand the situation better.

Analogy:

Someone comes over to MY house and uses the restroom. They use the end of the roll and mount the spare roll on the hanger/dispenser. Now because I don't like the direction it is unrolling I take it and turn it around to MY preferred direction. Then the other person goes back into my restroom a second time but turns MY roll back around to the way THEY want it. See, they had no right to change it back because it does not belong to them in the first place, it belongs to me and that is the direction I want it to unroll. My restroom is not public property to be used or edited as liked by others.

Change my roll around knowing that I don't want it that way and you would no longer have access to my restroom either. I should not have to put up a sign explaining how I want my roll mounted on the hanger. This should have been self explanatory when it was discovered that I had changed it for my own reasons whether you like it or not this way or not. Make sense my friend?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Point taken.

And I accept that.

But let's put this into perspective.

Hundreds of idiots on this site, in the past have spewed jew hatred for years on this site.

Titles have blatant lies and disinformation in them.

My crime is that Mr. Nystrom doesn't like me.

I get it. It is his site.

But isn't there a little bit of an odor on this one?

It doesn't make any sense.

You read my OP and you saw the original title.

What gives?

I'm back

Would you mind taking this off the floor to a private chat? If you are wiling I will send you the link through your DP contact if it is on.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I am not sure I know what that is.

And I do not chat privately on the internet.

I do not like secrets.

I prefer not to give out my email here at dp because of past issues. All the threats and stalkers. It doesn't bother me, but my wife and I share our e-mail addresses and it disturbed her.

Can we chat privately on dp without that happening and so that Mr. Nystrom can watch in case he is interested?

I can appreciate that

I completely understand, I was just thinking a private conversation on my own server could prevent either of us from getting ourselves in trouble here. "Take it outside" per say. It would just be me and you and you would appreciate the rules, There are none, You can say anything you like it belongs to me.

I hoped at sometime you might come to trust me man. Besides I am bound by liability legalities just like any other webmaster concerning information. But I completely understand my friend. But for me the conversation has come to the point I would rather be in a private rather than public environment to continue.

Be back

Have a customer to take care of. Be back in a bit man.

Let's make sure we are factual.

Perhaps you should do some critical analysis before "educating."

http://www.factcheck.org/2009/08/twenty-six-lies-about-hr-3200/

I have not read the Affordable Care Act, myself, so I cannot confirm that factcheck.org is correct yet. I do find it very unlikely that they would publish easily verifiable falsehoods, though. If they have, please highlight them!

I'd pat you on the back...

...and give you a hug were you within arms reach.

Beautifully done!

Like I keep saying, you just have to talk to people to get the message past the MSM noise. You won't get all of them but, more and more will wake up and carry the message forward and will freely join us in this battle.

On a side note, which is why I found your post so encouraging, this morning I read a piece on Michael Rivero's WRH site, saying that AIPAC is losing ground in the halls of Congress. http://bit.ly/1aQnBY9 Made me very happy. Yep, very happy.

The more people we can get to learn the truth, the better the near future will be for everyone, conservative, liberal, whatever.

My Point..My Laundry

My point in sending her to that video was this..It had effect..The right effect...and caused her son to start to question things..look them up...and relay them to her and educate.
As far as my laundry....I have no choice but to go wash them..unless I do them by hand in the tub. I cant afford the extra 20.00 it would cost to drop them off and have that done for me..Thats 80.00 a month I would blow on having something done I can do myself..and if I hadnt of been there...I wouldnt have met her...she wouldnt have looked up the video..her son would not have gotten involved..and they wouldnt be trying to wake up their family. I wasnt just 'hanging out' as it was said..
Some people around here would take a childs lollipop...suck off all the flavor then give it back to the child and tell them how bad lollipops are

To the rest of you THANK YOU

that video isn't about ObamaCare

It is pretty clear about that in the description of the video at youtube. So, what was your point in sending her to that? Do you have another video about the bill that was actually passed into law? If it is truly worse, then there should be an even better video.

Great Work!

Educate - don't alienate!

Ask any of these waitresses

Ask any of these waitresses and cashiers who have been a large part of the group that has had their hours cut from 40 to 30 to avoid employer mandated health care if they are exempt from the cost.
