star. I agree. Race is a non-issue compared to more pressing issues we should all agree take priority, imo.
Criticize the actions and behaviors, and unlike what Beck is a proponent of "Judge a man by the quality of their character", which I do not think is
absolute reasoning considering people cannot fathom or imagine other peoples' intentions without having something they know about themselves to use as
a basis for comparison when attempting to judge someone else. If I was President Obama, then who would I be? And if I am in President Obama's head
to judge him as being or doing what is insane, then if I'm in his head, am I not out of my mind? Malformed logic, imo, at certain degrees. But, I
could be wrong.
As for racist presidents, owning slaves is something more than one president did, and more than one president did in office. But that was years ago.
As for anyone who attempts to become an extension of the wills of hundreds of millions of others, and somehow magically responsible for their actions
and behaviors and accountable for their actions and behaviors, I just don't think the blame game works. It takes a villiage, but sometimes what we
seem to have is a village of idiots, myself included as I am confronted with situations that require responses, but may be ignorant of some variables
to the equation, and do not have the luxury of hindsight.
In summary of this post, yes, we can judge the actions and behaviors of, and use indirect evidence to calculate what would have to be going on behind
closed doors to institute what seems to me to be like a global martial law pact between nations, to incorporate psychological warfare tactics against
the populace of geographical locations and like minded demographics.
YES, jugding the president and why his actions and behaviors and overt agendas are, are acceptable. Calling racism is the weaker sides fallback
point, imo. Racism is a deterrent from certain truisms, and linear thinking may automatically not include certain possibilities as known options.
Racism is the burden of those who cannot see past it or through it for what it is/was. People can voice their opinion about their president without
it being racist, but remember there are many alive among us that remember when racism was a very political issue at the highest levels of
On some issues there are things we should all be able to agree upon, and we are not paying attention to details as a whole, imo.
some of my thoughts on this matter,
