Obviously, you're not really sorry, nor did you just have to post it, Bruce. This is not funny or "hilarious" as Guppy 11 thinks.. it's blatant racism. Just to be clear, I'm NOT calling you a racist. Maybe you just didn't think this thing through with all the genuine frustration over health care going around at the moment.
Anyway, just in case you don't agree with my opinion on this, I sent a link to this post/website to Michael Steele, who, as you know, is the Chairman of the Republican National Committee (and a black man) to see what he thinks of it. Of course, Mr. Steele is against Obama's health care plan, so maybe he will think it's pretty funny. Let's just see what he says.

I see nothing racist about it at all. I see it as a portrail of witch doctor medicine trying to fix a system using barbaric methods. to say the least. But I supose if you try real hard to find something racist in anything at all, that you will convince yourself its there and create it.
I guess that shooting darker colored deer could be considered a racist act then.

we really need to get away from this touchy feely mentallity or we will not be able to say and or do anything without offending someone.

I'm not much left or right on politics but I wiil fight for what is right and Obamma is 100% wrong for America if you believe in the Constitution, otherwise the fight against socialism is on. Cartoons are cartoons onehorse, I don't remember you saying anything about President Bush's cartoons as being over the top? Trying not to pick on your political views but you're poking them at us so a little back your way is fair. With all that is said, I will try to return to the hunting forums as noted by Buckfever as to what we are here for. I think I'd better start setting up my 2012 doctor's vistits just to be sure.

Onehorse I don't understand how you can view this as "Racism" and yes you did just call me a Racist which I dont appreciate.
I was born in NEWARK, N.J., the multi-Cultured capital of the world and I've NEVER ever been tagged a racist ever.
I didn't create the Obama/Witchcraft graphic
I didn't create the healthcare bill which obviously prompted the making of it BUT the healthcare bill is what makes the Witch Doctor graphic so funny.
AND I dont post JUST funny graphics of Black People and under the same conditions,
If this had been the very same graphic of George W. Bush I would have posted it just as quickly For the HUMOR.
You have a good day sir.

Why is somebody called a racist or hate monger( don't think I spelled that right) because you don't agree with the Obama agenda? I'm running into the same thing on Facebook. To me most govt. buerocracy is likened to "black magic" which is a reference to being evil not black people. Remember Obama is just as white as he is black. Humor is humor. I'm only 5 feet 4 inches tall, I've heard my share of short jokes and been called my share of names, most being said in humor. I don't don't get made its all in fun. The world has no since of humor anymore. When I saw the above picture, I never even thought about it being a black man, all I saw was a witch doctor. I don't get offended by the term redneck or hill billy, these both have negative conitations. This just show how divisive this president has made the people.

people see what they want to see and there is nothing anyone can do to change that. my first thought was witch craft, voodoo, and the like, none of which is believable either. much in the same way the tea party goers are seen or portrayed as racist, ignorant, homophobes, and all because they didn't drink the kool aid and have had enough from the feds, BOTH SIDE OF THE ISLE. people see what they want to see.

OK, you guys all think it's funny, and I still think it's racist. So, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. It's pretty clear to everyone here that I'm the odd-man-out when it comes to politics on this site. Too bad for me, as it get's a little lonely on this side of the arguments, but, hey, that's my choice as, believe it on not, even WITH the politics, I like you guys - especially Bruce and HM. I guess what really bugs me is that this site is supposed to be a deer hunting site, and, if you have ever read the rules, you might remember that politics is supposed to be left out of the discussions. There are plenty of political sites out there for that.
Bruce, if you think I called you a racist, I'm sorry. That may not exactly be an apology, but it's the best I can do at the moment.

onehorse its ok by me to be opposites in politics, at least we agree on most hunting stuff. I tend to think most gun owners favor conserative politics and personal freedoms they just go hand in hand. The democrats have went so far liberal/socialist that even JFK would shudder today. I think because the health care vote was so one sided and not favored by a clear majority of Americans we had to voice a justified outcry here. I know where you stand you know where I stand. As you said we'll agree to disagree on this one. I would think together at 10,000' politics probably wouldn't enter the fireside conversation! HM

onehorse no apologies are necessary. I posted a graphic that you viewed in a way I never meant it to be viewed. I'm sorry it offended you. however, My only intention was to inject a little humor to lighten the heavy load created by the passing of such a controversial heathcare bill.
They always say laughters the best medicine and in this case many of us felt sickened by what Obama did, I'm really shocked that his actions didn't slap and insult you as it did each of us.
All of us agree the nation needs better healthcare but not this way.

Politics or not, democrats or republicans, black people or white people, the only thing that matters here is the amount of common respect each of us possess for one another.
And onehorse I respect you and every other member at this website and I will continue to do so no matter what's said.
feelings may get hurt once in awhile but I hope the friendships we all have here last forever.
I bet No other website has the family type atmosphere that we've created here.

No harm no foul...

you have every right to your political opinon. that is your right given to you by the constitution. and i think it is safe to say that any and every Vet on hear is proud that you are exercising your rights that we have swarn to protect. as a mater of fact Respectfull disagreement is what makes our countery so great. my political opinion is no more valuble than yours. its just mine. i also think that when one political party rules the roust, the way the Dems do right now it is just plane dangrous for us citizens. and i would say that if the Reps were a super majority to. our countery was built to have checks and ballences and when you have a super majoraty like we have now, all them checks and ballances go out there window. so even though we disagree, i am happy you feel the way you do, and hope you go out and vote for your beliefs in the fall.:thumbup:
