I don't see people suggesting that. I see them saying that we have some really tough times ahead and that's true. The country and its people have virtually been ignored for many years now and it's showing wear. The economy is tanking, our people are hungry, homeless and without health care, the military is suffering and our reputation in the world is no longer that of the greatest nation in the world.

Could we please not make this a race thread??? PLEASE??? Could we stay on topic.


I don't see where I talked about the color of his skin other than to say what the world thinks plays nothing into what America thinks...

How is the military suffering? Though I agree America needs to reconstitute its infrastructure, I disagree people are going hungry in America other than those who are unwilling to help themselves, and even in that case just about every Church (all kinds), city and community have many programs in place.

If a person has lived their whole life making one poor life choice after another and so they have no skills or education and just happen to live in an area where many are just like them, I see this as they have created their own situation.

Sometimes a better life means you move, and or gain better skills, and I would be behind any program that headed in that direction, but they don’t. They all provide fish, but none provide a way for that person to learn how to fish on their own.

The big question and one that goes back to what our founding fathers wanted is whether this is a federal issue or a state issue. I personally say it is a state issue for we already have a huge federal foot print and since we are the United States and not just one big state this goes totally against our founding forefathers ideals.

Hey guys newsflash!!

His skin color doesn’t mean squat
It isn’t going to affect how well or bad he does his job

Seriously can we please move past the skin color because it seems like everytime I talk about Obama whether it is on ATS or out in the real world the conversation always seems to get to his skin color?

Sorry for the confusion.
I was speaking to those who were getting into a discussion of skin color. Not you.




How is the military suffering?


One in four homeless people are vets. Source

Military Foreclosures

Shortage of Officers

Shortage of Chaplains

Veteran Medical Care Funding Suffering

Army Enlisting Mostly Low Intelligence and HS Dropout Recruits

I could go on...

I'm not even going to answer your accusation that the 35 million people whose Food Security (the USDA's term - because "hunger" sounds so nasty) is very, very low is because they brought it on themselves.

Take note..the facial expression on Obama during the campaign, and now before the inauguration. Its changed..hasnt it. He looks more worried, like as if he has been told something that is completely outside of the norm and wasnt expecting it. I dont think it has anything to do with going into office and facing all the problems...its something else.


I too have noticed this. At first I thought he just needed a vacation but after his vacation it seemed to get worse...
