    I have a cousin who tried to restore a Pierce-Arrow from the 19 teens, but couldn't get the parts and sold it to a buddy after a couple of years.

    I'm always still in trouble again

If he believes his officers are not racist but are the victims of circumstance and a wave in the Black community of the perception that any police action against a black person is racism - regardless of what that black person was doing at the time - there isn't a lot he CAN do in any short period of time.

    This line of criticism of him is grossly hypocritical - especially on this web site. If he was not gay - you'd be all over supporting him. And, in fact, he should be supported. This is not a trivial problem to solve and there is nothing I know of that indicates he has been remiss in his dealings on this issue.

    OK - maybe there are 'some' friends

    That's a steaming load of horsie poo, Jim. But that's your right.

    I simply posted it because it's newsworthy - he's trying to court the black vote, and he can't seem to manage that. If he can't manage a small Midwestern town, how's he going to lead a Nation?

    For the record, and in opposition to nutty unfounded accusations of homophobia, my problems with Buttigieg have more to do with his reputation as "Pandering Pete", advocating for limitless abortion, wrapping himself in "faith" to attack Christians, and his apparent inability to secure the black vote he desperately needs....

    Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has come out of the gate early talking about black folks and the persistent inequalities in America. Now he needs to find a way to talk to African Americans, those whose complexions may look like me but not think like me.

    It's a delicate dance for Buttigieg. Stops along his campaign trail have been noticeably absent of people of color. He has repeatedly acknowledged his desire to build a more diverse base. But one misstep and Buttigieg might earn the nickname "Pandering Pete."

    Buttigieg must find a way to appeal to black voters without appearing calculating or condescending. He has quickly realized that he must make a pitch to African Americans who will ultimately ask: If I vote for you what are you going to do for me and my family?

    Can you name 1 person managing this issue any better on the national level?

    And whether youll admit it or not, your criticism is based on the fact he is gay and a democrat. A felloe R abd straight in in the same situation and youd be slamming his critics.

    No, it's based on the fact that he's yet another leftist socialist pushing for the murder of innocent unborn children.

    If he were a felloe [sic] 'R', I would hope he'd not be pushing an anti-life agenda.

    Your mind reading skills stink out loud.

    Are you feeling another anti-Trump tantrum coming on, Jim?

    I think I'll go back to ignoring you and your drivel. Rant on, big guy!

    Yep, that's why this thread has 164 pages and is still growing. It has nothing to do with him being gay.

    Are you also selling beachfront property in arizona?

    About 150 of those pages were us trying to get Tassman to admit to making up his statement that Buttigieg claimed to be a practicing Christian.
