Rep. Charlie Rangel on Guns:
‘Some of the Southern Areas Have
Cultures that We Have to Overcome’

Cybercast News Service, by Craig Millward

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2013 10:21:15 AM

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on “MSNBC Live” on Jan. 16 said that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” when it comes to gun control. Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states: “If you’re proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection

Wow. This hateful, incompetent, corrupt old man would be apoplectic if a Republican had even thought of uttering a statement like that about a certain segment of society. These people are no longer humorous, they are dangerous and show their true intentions every single day.

He is a tax fraud and a liar. Even I know that
you CANNOT have any type of business in a rent controlled apt in NYC , and I have never lived there. and I also know you have to pay taxes on income from rental property. Obviously if you are elected to office the rules do not apply to you - the Rangel mandate. ( all my opinion ).
The culture we have to overcome is the corruption of people elected to Government offices.

FTA: obviously there is not going to be any ... perfect law that everybody is going to agree on

Yeah, well, "shall not be infringed" is in fact a principle set by the Founders above law. Everybody had better agree on observing it.

And someone who swore to uphold it to take office had blasted better well do so.

Our rights were bestowed on us by our Creator.
The government has NO right to take them away.
Contrary to what many believe, Obama is NOT God.

He better watch what he says about those "gentle southerners". They are good people but they will not be roughshod run over by Rangel. He needs to clean his own backyard before coming down on others.

My take on history is that the bill of rights was written partly in order to keep the Southern states a part of the union. If any one of those first ten amendments is no longer upheld, then there is nothing else in the Constitution to keep the south as part of the union.

Charlie ol´ boy - here´s a tip for you...

I grew up in Manhattan - Upper East Side. By sheer luck, my Mother was from SC. I noticed *very* quickly after getting out of college, a person could live *very* well in the South for pennies on the dollar compared to NY city - and in a *far* safer environment.

You´re welcome to your Harlem hell-hole. I watched no end of ´social experiments´ fail to lift that area out of the danger zone, and visits back to the city confirm it´s worse now by far than when I left.

Tell ya´ what, Charlie...ya´ll come on down for a visit. We promise all the cornbread you can eat, and doubtful anyone would bust a cap on you simply for being black.

The South has the quality of life you bozos only dream of up there in your 200 square foot, $1000 a month taxpayer subsidized ghettos.

“some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome”
OK Charlie, it is time to have a conversation about "culture". In fact, it is long overdue.
Exactly WHAT has YOUR culture of corruption and welfare done for America?
You insist on being called African-American, so please tell me WHAT the contributions to the betterment of World culture has the continent of Africa produced.
Single women giving birth over and over with different fathers, insisting that we owe them something, students who drop out of school at sickening rates, uneducated, non-parented wolf cubs who prey on law abiding society..all of them with their hands out..if you think you and your democrat friends are going to attack the Southern "culture" you should just shut up and go away now.
Folks, this is the Obama plan..to make the normal people appear extreme..fight back now!

I just hope this criminal lives long enough to encounter a Republican who isn´t dirty, that will do a punishing audit on his ´finances.´ Start by flipping the parasites that benefited from his blatant corruption and work your way into this mess. Of course the IRS in general would have to be adjusted and I don´t see a Republican reformer anywhere with the moxie to do what has to be done. Perhaps his criminal associates will end up turning on him. It´s a long shot, but stranger things have happened.

Obamacare Is Getting Cheaper

The most expensive provisions of Obamacare will cost taxpayers about $100 billion less than expected, the Congressional Budget Office said Monday. CBO also said it doesn´t expect big premium increases next year for insurance plans sold through the health care law´s exchanges. In its latest analysis, CBO said the law´s coverage provisions—a narrow part of the law that includes only certain policies—will cost the government $36 billion this year, which is $5 billion less than CBO´s previous estimate. Over the next decade, the provisions will cost about $1.4 trillion—roughly $104 billion less than CBO last estimated. The analysis covers only

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba -- A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality may have been breached in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, apparently, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind,

The chairman of a key House oversight panel is calling for an investigation into what he says looks like a $175 million “slush fund” set up by the U.S. Agency for International Development to entice Afghan government officials into embracing Western-style reforms. USAID officials said they set up the U.S.-Afghan Incentive Fund without objection from lawmakers last year and that the fund has been used in coordination with the World Bank to “drive reforms” in the war-torn nation, whose government was plagued by widespread corruption and bribery long before the U.S.-led invasion began in late 2001.

Opponents of voter identification legislation consistently contend that it proposes a solution to a non-problem. President Barack Obama, during a speech at Al Sharpton´s Action Network Conference in New York City on Friday, put it this way: "Let´s be clear. The real voter fraud is people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud." And U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told MSNBC early this year that voter fraud "simply does not exist to the extent that would warrant these kinds of measures." .

That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016?

But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
