Barack H. Obama is credited with being the first black President of the United States. Immediately following his election, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize; allegedly, for his campaign promises.

George Washington Carver's reputation is based on his research into and promotion of alternative crops to cotton, such as peanuts.The most popular of his 44 practical bulletins for farmers contained 105 food recipes using peanuts.In 1941, Time magazine dubbed Carver a "Black Leonardo".

    I first posted this back on October 31st, 2009. It still applies, only now we know that ol Barak is a liar as well!

    Barak Brak Brak Baraaaak!

    John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

    This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.

    Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

    John's favorite rooster, old Barak, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Barak 's bell hadn't rung at all!

    When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.

    To John's amazement, old Barak had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring . He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

    John was so proud of old Barak, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

    The result was the judges not only awarded old Barak the No B...

    The result was the judges not only awarded old Barak the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

    Clearly old Barak was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention .

    G.W. Carver truly rose from poverty to become a success.
    He didn't smoke Hawaiian dope, either, along the way (lol).

    One has helped our country and the world greatly, persevered through much racism and hate, and is a good role model for all african-americans. The other one is president.

    We have a high school named for Carver and I remember reading a little about him. He deserves his accolades. Obama? ........he gave a speech for some war hero Senator and referred to HIMSELF 63 times!!! http://www.weeklystandard.com...

    I referred to obama as a mulatto (which he is) but was informed that THAT term in no longer in use as it's derogatory. duh??? I've also been called on for using the word 'homosexual'.

    Actuallly.....a mulatto is a mix with Spanish, French, creole and black.

    I rarely use the term "homosexual" that being a misnomer. The correct term would be Sodomite.

    He's an empty suit in brown skin that was enough to get him in and keep him there.Every city with predominantly black leadership was/ is a clusterf&ck;,facts CANNOT be debated nor do they make me racist.

    There is a genuine historical significance to being the first black American president given the history of our nation (and regardless of personal opinions about his actions) - but, Carver was an amazing thinker and deserves more credit than generally given.

    The question has nothing to do with the political consequences, just the historical significance, of the fact that he is the first black American to be president of the USA, thus I made a conscious effort to avoid what you seem intent on introducing.

    Jeffrey Dahmer has historical significance too. But he's still a cannibalistic mass murderer. We don't really KNOW who obama is.

    Oh, so sorry! The only historical significance is that obama will go down as the most infamous traitor-in-chief.
  • Tordgaard Louisa ... 2012/12/23 17:13:58
    Tordgaard
    Logically, he could not become the "most infamous traitor-in-chief" unless he historically was the president. So, your comment is illogical.

    At least Carver had some real innovation and experience.

    Both will be shown to be very historically significant. Carver in a positive way and Obama negatively.
