Meet The New Boss

Peter Hauck

In a speech today in Bristol, Va. Barack Obama said he doesn't taken money from special interests and, from now on, neither will the Democratic National Committee.

Sound Bite: "We will not take a dime from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs. We're going to change how Washington works. They will not fund my party. They will not run our White House and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I'm president of the United States of America."

why is it that I don't believe him and that he would say anything to get black reparations?

Dear Hmmmmm:
The only presidential candidate to support reparations is Dennis Kucinich. Barack Obama is on record as saying he is not in favor of "signing checks over to African Americans". There is no evidence -- none -- that Barack Obama supports the idea of reparations. Even the right wing press hasn't been able to do any more than some "guilt by association" on that subject. Maybe you believe what you believe because you are, let's say, uninformed?

As far as directing the DNC to stop taking lobbyist/PAC contributions, I applaud the gesture, however financially impractical. Hope he's able to make it work, but again, you seem to base your disbelief on nothing. The "why" of it, I'm afraid, is something residing in your heart.

To Hmmmmm,,,,,,

Why is this even a concern of yours? Are you against the USA finally taking it's GOD given responsibility to a race it nearly ruined? Are you against it repaying the ancestors of the men women and children it murdered, pitted against one another, purposely sepreated from family, and tribe and others that spoke their language IN ORDER TO BREAK THEM?

This was more than cruel and unusual punishment. Are you against the near genocide and just the plain destruction of nearly ever african american males self-esteem?

This NATION has never been innocent in DESTROYING lives of those who are not ANGLO-SAXEN. Destroying them in the most heinous ways. This nation isn't and never will be INNOCENT.

This nation owes it's AFRICAN AMERICAN POW's....Dear Hmmmm..., Why are you AFRAID????

Obama will do the right thing.....

Now all he needs to do is find a good VP. This site holds a Vice President Poll every week, so you can see what America thinks. Just visit:


and help your favorite candidate choose his/her running mate. They started a VP poll last week, and the results from that poll have just been posted. This poll is honest and represents all of America.
