    Why? People are concerned about McCain's health. Why not Obama's?

    Why? Because people are concerned about McCain's health for good reasons.

    Did you do a search on the Ten Leading Causes of death in the U.S. White, Brown, Yellow, Green, Americans? Nope! I didn't think a numbskull like you would! :eusa_eh:

    Your a fucking idiot. Correct for income and those differences basically disappear. And guess what, Obama makes a lot more the average black guy in the United States.

    Its sad and pathetic that the only reason you give a shit that blacks die 7.1 years earlier than whites in this country is in an attempt to discredit Obama.

    :lol: this thread is hysterical

    Ok, so Obama's health is at risk..

    We get Joe Biden as President in the event Obama dies while in office.

    I for one would risk that outcome than an outcome where McCain diees and we get Palin....and I think it's dawning on most americans that they feel the same way....

    I love it when I get under your skin. But, of course, my intention was to point out the hypocrisy of the Left which you have demonstrated quite well. Yes, McCain is old and there have been a lot of Looney-Lefties (like yourself) who support age discrimation. Somehow, you think that he's going to die because of his age and because of health issues, which is how you rationalize your disciminatory arguments. So what if we turn it around? Blacks suffer from far more diseases than whites. Obama = black, McCain = white. Liberals like yourself obviously have no idea what I'm talking about, so you get angry. It's hilarious!

    Thanks for admitting you aren't interested in serious conversation and are just a troll. No surprise, but thanks for the admission.

    Really? Like myself? Care to link where I've supported age discrimination?

    Hmm, age and death are strongly correlated, even if you factor out everything else. Pretty sure that the older you get the more likely you are to die because of your age.

    Correlation does not mean causation, kid. As I said, factor out poverty and the differences disappear. But of course then that wouldn't support your ridiculous hypothesis, eh?

    Why don't you just give up while you're ahead? You somehow think I'm a troll because I'm exposing people like you for the hypocrites that you are. :clap2:

    Please, whatever you do, DON'T BREED!
