While i don't think it will get to that point, it sure seems to be going in that direction. Again this just re-affirms my core belief that gov't really can't fix anything, only make it worse. But a race war, we had better hope not. But if it did happen, we can sure thank people like Re.... Mr. Reich for kindling that fire. Along with the usual race baiting suspects. We know who.

"we are artists, our heads are suppose to be in the clouds, and here we are fighting for truth and justice"

That is a tradition for artist! We're born with an abundance of feelings and emotions and we seek the beauties in life. Remember Picasso's Guernica and the awesome statement it made about society at that time? So we're bound to go after those we see as hurtful and bad for our world.

You almost sound like you are ... i mean you don't have to explain why you're an artist. That's how God or the universe or whatever you believe made you. Without art i think humanity would have gone mad and extinct a long time ago.

You need to get out of your ideology, you just saw your wild west free market sink the damn country. There are many things the government does far better than free enterprise and can do it cheaper. It is not government, it is good government that is require, with trained managers and efficient design. You think free enterprise could ever defend this country? The volume of contractors used over the last few years were far more expensive that what it would have cost us to have used our military. Our most valuable guys cashing out and joining the contractors for 3 times the money and on top of that the companies had to make a few million too. There is a balance for everything. Get over your fear of government and just worry about having a good clean government and we'll all do better.

Seriously. If that's what's going to happen? They're going to pay stimulus only to black construction workers? Well I'll just take advantage of that simply by setting up a "Kool-Aid" stand at every construction site I come across on the east side of town. And advertise, saying that if you buy so many cups of kool-aid? You'll receive a coupon book full of coupons for use at KFC. And also advertise saying that I will donate a percentage of my profit to the United Negro College Fund.

When life throws you lemons? Make lemonade! Or in this case? Kool-Aid!

In the few months I've been visiting ATS, I have got to say; this post ranks top 3 most ignorant post I've read. I was not going to post a comment on this thread period until I read your post. Just goes to show you, the more things change the more they stay the same. Let me put the shoe on your foot. Tell me how it fits.

'Seriously, if that's what's going to happen? They're going to pay stimulus only to MEXICAN LAWN WORKERS? Well I'll just take advantage of that simply by setting up an ENCHALADA stand at every construction site I come across in the BARRIO. And advertise, saying that if you buy so many ENCHALADA'S? You'll receive a coupon book full of coupons for use at any CARNICARIA. And also advertise saying that I will donate a percentage of my profit to the HISPANIC COLLEGE FUND.

When life throws you lemons? Make lemonade! Or in this case? TEQUILA!'

I could have made this sound much worse. But this was only to prove a point. Stop being so ignorant people and wake up.
Stop reading so far into nonsense. Simple case of wrong arrangement and choice of words. To the posters who choose to use this as ammo against the current administration. ONE MAN/WOMAN DOES NOT SPEAK FOR AN ADMINISTRATION.

First off, it's not fear of the govt, you misunderstand. It's, dustrust, plain and simple. Not distrust of any govt, but currently this one, YOU BET.

I actually do agree that purely free enterprise (wild west style) is not the answer. There has to be rules of course and some regulation. What i don't believe they can do, is fix problems that they generally have no idea how to fix. How do i know they have no idea how to fix it? I don't, it's more of a bet. But I'll tell you one thing, they will sure take all the credit IF things get better. Barry-O has some big plans i guess, now with his party in charge, i guess only time will tell.

EDIT: When you say we need good govt - a good govt, would be fine with me! No argument there!

And for the record, all this talk of race war this, race war that. BS!!! The last time I checked, all of us who work are flipping the tab for the ever growing interest on the debt owed to the Fed Res.. And we're sitting here talking about a race war? Lol. Boy, the gov't would sure love that. Less people they have to take by force. Less blood they would have to sully their hands with once the '"NWO" starts. People please, I'M BEGGING YOU, please wake up.

This is load of crap. a mans worth is measured buy the sweat of his brow. i grow up in a family of 5, my father was a construction worker and yes i'm white but color has nothing to do with it. we lived off of a annual income of $15,000 a year til i graduated. we didn't ask for help from any gov. programs in any way we made do with what we had. my father worked his butt off but in all this it instill in me and my two sibling that you work with all of your being for what you need in life. i go to work every night and bust my but for the pay i make, yet i hear people say to me hey man you got a dollar i can borrow, yet they make the same amount of money i do. where the problem lies is in priority, i have no bills, no car payments, house is almost payed for i want for nothing so as my wife and , daughter. people need to stop looking for a freebee and get to doing somthing. one more thing is where is all the funds that the states tack up in tax revenue for roads such as wheel taxs, fuel taxes, and registration fees. why isn't anyone asking these questions instead of complaining about the race issue. it is a slide of hand show and magisian has just pulled the oldest trip in the book making things disappear.

Come on man, sweat is just a cool CGI effect.

Seriously though, perhaps a correction to the old saying, relevant for modern times is in order: "A man's worth SHOULD be measured by the sweat of his brow"

has anyone even took notice of the last part of my post.
this is the part that i found that was so appalling.

I'm sorry, but i don't believe this video is real. The people's mouths and what is being said do not match up, what the? Also if anything like this were really stated publically the media would have many field days with it, no matter what race or occupation was being discussed, it is not an acceptable or tolerable or legal statement.

If you're going to do that, it might help your business to know how to properly spell enchilada.

As for the OP, Robert Reich is a very dangerous man to a number of people. Way back in 1999, he said the following:

"The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress are irrelevant.
... America's domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and
the Federal Reserve, and America's foreign policy is now being run
by the International Monetary Fund [IMF]. ...when the president decides
to go to war, he no longer needs a declaration of war from Congress."

Now, prior to him saying that, I considered Reich to be a little troll of a man who endorsed reverse discrimination and was essentially a prototype for the "Jewish Guilt" personalities that the Clinton administration seemed to be so full of. In other words, holders of old Jewish money who, for whatever reason, feel guilty over the fact that there is poverty in the ghettos of America and who take it upon themselves to support policies which take other Americans' money and redistribute it to said impoverished minorities. It seems I may have underestimated the guy's intelligence.

That said, I still completely disagree with his politics and definitely with his socialist agendas. Charlie Rangel's portion of this video is inconsequential because the man is a babbling, senile fool. I hope that the majority of AMericans are smart enough to recognize that guys like Rangel, Al Sharpton, and Bobby Rush are attention whores with loud mouths and their words are as meaningless as their brains are.

This is embarrassing.

How the hell can anyone take this seriously?

I have seen better audio-dubbed '70's porn flicks!

Turn on your brain - the video and audio are not related!!!!

If you want to rant and rave about a subject then fine - but base it in facts and actual proven events and statements - not this crap!

basically what they are saying is that, the white male construction workers are well off with pensions and retirement savings. They don't really need the jobs, they just use them to re-inject cash into their better than average savings. They more than likely can go without work for months before even considering the need to start accessing savings etc...

You're wrong!

Read Reich's blog it says the same thing

I realize that this response may not be read by most on ATS, (I, for one, don't always read to the last page of posts) but I am beyond compelled to state my thoughts!

First of all, HERE of ALL places, I would expect to see some reasonable arguments! Instead, all I see is the further division amongst the masses! Pitting one sector of slave against another. Which, by the way, is EXACTLY the intended purpose of the dialogue!

What better way to insight the needed discord amongst the masses than to pit them against each other based on race? After all, it seems to have worked for 'civilization' for thousands of years... if it's not broke, why would the rulers-of-wealth try to fix it?

Don't you yet see? As long as we are fighting amongst each other, we will never be able to unite. to successfully stand against this enslavement in the first place?!

Furthermore, isn't there so much more to fear than a redistribution of wealth in the world? I don't know about the rest of you on this site, but I have made myself aware of the fact that I am not included in the 'Ruler's' category.

As a matter of fact, a VERY small number of the six-plus billion of us on this planet are! (Less than a thousand people can truly call themselves part of the EXTREMELY exclusive club called the 'Ruling Class')

Who among us can honestly argue against the redistribution of wealth, when a mere 1% of the population has accumulated (through fraud, deceit, war-mongering and MURDER) more of said wealth and planetary resources, than the other 99% of us COMBINED?

I call a spade a spade, and this propaganda has apparently served it's purpose quite well... It has succeeded in turning even the most (quote unquote) open minds... against each other!

Mission accomplished.

No, this is EXACTLY what he said. Watch the CSPAN clip from around 28:00 minutes. There is no overdub on this clip. These were his words. Said VERY clearly.

Here's the link to CSPAN:
