Due to the recent news surrounding the debacle in Sanford, FL (which I have not written about it because, unlike the mainstream media, I don’t believe I’m qualified to because I haven’t been given all the facts), I am reposting this story from 2008 that I wrote after Bobby Rush was elected to Congress to represent Illinois. Please share this with everyone you know…how did a former Black Panther member ever get elected in the first place?
And just today, Congressman Bobby Rush from Illinois came on TV and warned against the implications of NOT seating a black man in the Illinois Senate seat, which was vacated by Barack Obama. Shortly thereafter, the talk of Rush being a member of the Black Panther Party starting ringing some bells to me, and it drew me back to the History Channel special I had just watched. So, I decided to do a little research.
Now, I know I’m late to the game on this, but the recent news about more waivers being granted for Obamacare caused me to dive into it again and have a second and third look. First I was wondering about the connections some of the companies had with democrats or democrat-supporting organizations or people, but then you don’t have to research to find that out for a lot of them; it’s right there in their names: this “Union,” that “Brotherhood,” this “Guild,” etc., etc., etc.
I started noticing not who the waivers were granted to, but at the number of employees some of them listed. Aren’t these waivers granted so that the companies/organizations won’t bear an undue burden financially? If you have ZERO or 3 employees, why in the world would you need the waiver?
