It's far more racist that you think only black people smoke crack.

Stammering and stuttering.

Given that most people puke on their shoes when they try, I think a TelePrompter is forgivable.

race relations in the country have been set back 40 years.


Yep, just like Rosa Parks set back race relations when she refused to move to the back of the bus.

Obamacare was not socialist. It was fascist. It was a hand-out to the insurance companies. If it was truly socialist, it would have been a single-payer plan or Universal HC.


Whatever it is you'll wish it had never happened when mandates for everything start popping up to "protect the public" from the butterfly effect voodoo of the guy who has a different opinion or lifestyle.

I mean, honestly, I have argued with A LOT of people who have completely rewired their brains to try and make Obamacare seem like a reasonable law and I am familiar enough with the views of many of those people (from the aggregate of other things they post) to know that the VAST majority of them have very strong socialist views on absolutely EVERYTHING else. Why shouldn't I assume they support Obama and Obamacare because they recognize it and him as their own?

That's to say that the typical Obama groupie and/or the typical Obamacare apologist/fan/whatever has generally been on the internet for absolutely years blathering on and on about how much better socialism is than capitalism. These people do not even try to conceal their views until you call Obama a socialist and then they'll come out of the woodwork to all tell you (at the same time) that's the most preposterous thing anyone has ever said.

Now maybe it's just me but I have to wonder. If Obama is not a socialist (and/or is nothing at all like a socialist and isn't doing anything to advance the socialist cause) why is it that millions and millions of self-proclaimed socialists just flippin love the man and Obamacare?

I think that's a simple question. I think when you have people who are being fundamentally dishonest, you'll know it when you get close enough to the truth to make them very uncomfortable. It's plain to see where they're coming from. If Obama is not a socialist, he's not part of their team and anyone who has ever gone up against a bunch of socialists can tell you how much love they have for people who are not part of their team.

Anyway, just my rambling rant on Obama and the whole socialism thing. I don't really care what he is. I know what a legal precedent is (There are a lot of complicated and hazy things in the law and in life in general. Precedent isn't one of them). And I know what kind of a precedent that individual mandate represents. And I know anyone who gives a damn about their future freedom and their right to choose anything will not be a fan of that precedent when it comes back around for a little trip down memory lane with all that tasty karma.

Well, I'm a white guy but as far as I'm concerned, I'd rather be told I have to sit at the back of the bus for being white than be told I have to buy insurance from a bunch of crooks because I exist.

Was all that racist stuff wrong? Yes. Of course it was. But there were far worse manifestations than having to sit at the back of the bus or use different bathrooms or whatever. Of course those things were stupid and humiliating and wrong. But it's about scale. Lynchmobs were worse than sitting at the back of the bus.

Take your pick.

Maybe 8 years ago, but people have seen his true colors as an establishment crony and doormat for foreign leaders.

Not to mention under 8 years of the Obama administration, the US has tripled its debt, lowered its credit rating, increased the cost of health care AND made it mandatory, and race relations in the country have been set back 40 years.




US Debt 2009: $11,909,829,003,511.75

US Debit 2016: $18,825,061,664,535.94

Notably the second number is NOT three times the first, putting the lie to the claim that debt has tripled under Obama.

US National Debt by Year




Standard & Poor’s downgraded the U.S.’s AAA credit rating for the first time, slamming the nation’s political process and criticizing lawmakers for failing to cut spending or raise revenue enough to reduce record budget deficits. S&P lowered the U.S. one level to AA+ while keeping the outlook at “negative” as it becomes less confident Congress will end Bush-era tax cuts or tackle entitlements.


Bloomberg

So, the credit rating cut related to the actions of Congress, not the White House.



The Republicans’ ad takes anecdotal experiences about cost increases that would be rare but potentially true and creates the impression that the federal health care law is just one big heap of problems for patients without any benefits. Then it tells voters that despite that morass, Crist supports it. People may see increases to their health care costs under the law, but the typical experience is nowhere near what the ad suggests. Indeed, other Floridians will see their costs go down. We rate the claim Mostly False.


Health insurance costs are skyrocketing under Obamacare, Republican Party says - MOSTLY FALSE - Politifact

Race relations have been set back, mostly as a result of constant barrage of commentary to that effect from the right-wing press, Voter ID discrimination, reversals of the Voting Rights Act, etc. The claim of "set back 40 years" is hyperbole though and clearly a matter of opinion not based on the facts.

So, 3 out of 4 claims about the Obama Administration are patently FALSE, and one is a matter of opinion.

Next?

I just found out that was a male, like 2 months ago.


I don't think we can snicker at him anymore. Against the law now, right?

How does Chris Crocker relate to 1) Obama 2) Teleprompters?

Silly people.

Obviously you've never spent any time with a crack head. This is exactly what happens---from time to time---even months after the smoking has stopped. Crack rewires the brain in really strange ways sometimes and sometimes the ability to speak coherently just disappears, replaced by babbling just like in this video.

I don't understand why you would bring race into the discussion. Is it just an irresistible urge to type up something about someone being racist if they don't bow down and worship Mr. Obama? Just for your edification, I'm an equal opportunity "whiner" when it comes to politicians. I'm thoroughly tired and disgusted by our nation being represented by sexual predators, alcoholic war hawks and now an admitted crack head. Is it any wonder that foreign nations snicker at our "leaders" who are really just clowns put up for our entertainment?

C'mon, that wasn't a brain fart, that was a full blown evacuate-your-cerebral-bowels moment ROFL. I guess the WiFi implant between obama's ears, where his brain may or may not have been, failed as well. Hard to control a puppet without a feedback loop ;-)

You certainly implied it. It's sad to see that kind of attitude in 2016, that only black people smoke crack. There were rumors Obama smoked crack, but you had to make it a race thing.

No, I certainly didn't imply it. The only implication along that line, would be from the person that I responded to.

Rumors about Obama smoking crack? Well, that's about the only thing I didn't hear him falsely accused of. Why would people say that? Oh, yeah.

Obama crack rumors, is a new one on me, so that's a swing and a miss on that one. Keep pretending that I'm the racist, Domo. Everything I've ever written here says something different. I've come to expect nothing less.

How many crackheads have you spent time with? More anecdotal nonsense to back up an empty assertion?

And what would "this" be exactly? Being Obama? Because the tendency to "stutter" (as he does on the initial Fox clip and and the video I posted shows that he's done throughout his career) is not constant with the President, but "being a crackhead" according to you would mean that he displays this behavior ALL THE TIME rather than on rare occasions (for example, when he's obviously impassioned about something, or indeed, goes off script for whatever reason.) which is pure unadulterated BS.

Anything to cast attention from what YOU said, eh? Which was to repeat the same racist allegation made by right-wingnut rags since 2008. Why don't you QUOTE your sources on Mr. Obama's "crack smoking" and show us what they're made of.

If not, I'd guess that someone here is protesting a bit too much ...

Again, for your edification, a member of my nuclear family was a crackhead as were several of his friends---most of his friends at the end of his life. So yes, I have plenty of anecdotal evidence of how crack affects the brain. I also have several college levels courses on brain chemistry and the effects of chemicals on the brain. My husband and I took every class in that subject offered at the local university in an attempt to understand what was happening to this loved one's brain and how to help him stop. If you're truly interested in knowing the long-term effects of crack I'm sure there's a class or two at your local college or university in which you can enroll.

"This" is what happens to the brain, the pathways that get wired wrong and make people babble randomly. Not all the time, not in any discernible pattern but in the midst of a conversation, any tiny distraction will set it off. In the video his teleprompter failed, a big distraction, and nonsense began coming out of his mouth. His history of drug use was admitted. Use Google if you're really interested.

Please stop with the race baiting. You started it, so please just stop. Race has nothing to do with crack use.
