That is a great point. Herman Cain is basically saying Martin Luther King Jr. should not have been a dreamer with a vision. Instead he should have sucked it up and become a banker or maybe an insurance salesman and lived his whole life to make money and be a sellout to society.

That's right everyone, just live for money, that's what Cain is saying America is all about. It's not about freedom it's about selling yourself out, selling everything out to follow the status quo and make yourself marketable.

Cain has really shown his ignorance here. Let's be honest. It's not like his Pizza chain brought manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. or did anything significant. It's actually quite funny when people who start a commercial business, especially a restaurant think they are doing the economy and the world a service. What our country needs is manufacturing jobs. So what if you start up a coffee shop, that does not help the economy it just gives people a way to waste their money in the morning.

I'm done with Cain. And I let his comments about Ron Paul supporters slide. But this is way too out there. For a Black man to disrespect the civil rights movement in such a way, he has no idea what America is about. Think about it.




Mr. Cain learned from his parents to not make waves in a White Supremacist culture, to follow its dehumanizing rules, to sit in the back of the bus. Rosa Parks, too, did this, until she got tired of following those rules and refused to budge. These two good Americans display the divergent thinking in any power struggle, any abusive situation: do I "get along" to survive or "go against" to effect change.

Mr. Cain became the "good Negro", acceptable to those who hold power in the abusive relationship. Rosa Parks became the "uppity Negro", refusing to no longer go along with the abuse.

Going along with the current status quo, pretending that electing officials to govt will offer change, continuing to survive the abuse dished out by those in power, maybe hoping things will change when the abuser sees the error of his ways, is not how this country was founded. Rather, it is totally, fully, rightfully, and a right, to protest the actions of those in power, to put pressure on those we elect! It is American.

True grassroots movements for the 99% should be feared by those in power, just as the movement, which was sparked when Mrs. Parks refused to go along, was feared.


Well said. It's very telling how we now have most politicians standing up and saying we shouldn't protest, shouldn't voice our opinions, and have no business telling Washington what to do or holding them accountable. This country was in fact built on that right.

It's shocking how many people in the white house apparently slept through US History 101, their freshman year in college. They also skipped the part about many of our for-fathers predicting this type of a scenario, if government gets too big and too powerful.

Seeing how we've been under a defacto Communism over the last 35 years socialism might not be a bad change.

LOLOLOLOL if we lived under communist. Rule there would be no protest, nor a forum like this!!! You should read about the horrors of communist rule before you say such things!

American kids are WAY too mouthy and spoiled to be under any dictatorship. But if that is where this generation takes us, I guess the up side is they will all learn what REAL poverty is..... And when to shut up.....

lololololol

All you are doing is proving how uninformed and biased you are! American youth are VERY mouthy and frequently whine, no fair, poverty and communism....

You only want me to shut up because I confront you to PROVE your claims and you can not, at least not with factual names and dates....

Poor poor you.

If you want me to shut up then back up all your wild claims when the dates events happened, the names of those involved and how it affected our Constitution...oh wait...YOU dont like to talk about the articles of the Constitution...my bad, I forgot

Call me all the names you want to.... I am a very big girl and names don't phase me.

If you had facts backing you up, there would be no need for name calling

Cain the unfederal bs bank' shill - beyond the shadow of doubt.
any way i look at it 9% income tax + 9% vat = 18%.
this is in no way a tax cut - they will only increase either of the 9% or both as years roll on.
and concerning the number 9.
in the ows demands 9 = open borders.
Cain uses 3- 9's - MASONIC? just askin.

btw - if you have EEO on your side - can you then truthfully call this guy a self made man or did eeo and its numbers game create hermie.
Human Resources in my company let be known back in the 80's that they had quotas to meet - facts are facts.
