What I like about Obama.

    What I like about Obama.

    1) I like the fact that he's been on TV everyday, sometime two three times.
    2) I like the fact that he speaks about the Health Plan, but does have one of his own, and apparently hasn't read any that are in Congress or the Senate.
    3) I like that unemployment is at 9.7%, and 17% in some states, and it's Bush's fault
    4) I like that all his records are sealed
    5) I like that all his associations, the people in his administration, and czars are all tax cheats and radicals
    6) I like that his qualifications include 150 days in the Senate, he has never run a City, State or a Business
    7) I like that he is confused about Afghanistan, has bought our troops home and apposes war
    8) I like that he is still in campaign mood, just wondering who is actually running this country.
    9) I like that whenever anyone disagrees with any of his policies, it has to be about his color.

    What's not to like?

        I'm especially fond of the way he consults with the leaders of  Acorn before he passes any policy.  And I have to admire Acorn for asking for another $6 million of the bail out to help fund housing for 14 year old hookers.  Oh wait, ever more, I love how Acorn helps the hard working girls set up corporations to evade taxes, while the slackers who work 80 hours a week, pay 30% in taxes plus.  Yeah, I think I can admire Obama's friends.

    I like the fact that Obama has a lot of patience.  He obviously needs it, considering he's trying to do the job the American people elected him to do, all the while dealing with rabid Republicans who propagate fear tactics and misinformation and talk show nutjobs who openly wish for him to fail. 

    I like the fact that Obama actually cares about the problems we have in this country and is trying to work out some solutions to keep this country afloat.

    What I don't like are topics like this one created just to promote more hatred and division in our country.

        I have no problem with anybody saying that they don't like Obama.  We're all entitled to our own opinions.  What I do have a problem with is hearing so many people parroting the things they hear on TV about Obama trying to turn us into a socialist country, that he's creating death panels, that's he's a Muslim, etc., etc., etc.

        That's why I commented on liking his patience.  I sure don't think I could've handled it as well as he did when Joe Wilson called him a liar.  I probably would've taken my shoe off and thrown it at him (oh, wait - that's already been done).

    As soon as the tit for tat is over (the Repubs are only giving the Demos what was given to them) which I think gets us no where faster---there are extremes on both sides.

    Socialism involves the redistribution of wealth, like:

    http://manyeyes.alphaworks.ibm.com/many … tate-per-d

    * the transfer of federal money to subsidize agriculture in rural communities

    Well there were so many holes in prop 8. It could of opened a gateway to where they could take away tax exemption laws to churches that were against gay marriage. If that were to happen, then churches would stop preaching what the Bible says about it. I also worry that at some point it would be considered wrong for me to say I was against it.

    Prop 8 was written the same as most laws that are up to vote. It was written in a way that wasn't fully detailed. It allowed too many possibilities.

    I have nothing against gay rights or gays for that matter. I have had a lot of friends that are. I just have noticed that Christian rights in general are being taken away. Example being Bible's or praying in school. People say that you still can but I remember the day like it was yesterday when I was almost suspended for praying with another student at school.

    I'd love equality for all, but in this world it just seems like for one group to have equality, the other has to have rights taken away.

      1. We were talking about the Federal Marriage Amendment, not California's Prop 8. Bush supported the former, and was not involved in the latter (obviously).

      2. It was an unadulterated myth that churches against gay marriage would lose their tax-exemption status. How many churches have lost their status for being against divorce, which is legal (although condemned in Christianity much more forcefully than homosexuality)? In the 5 months when gay marriage was fully legal in California, how many churches lost their tax-exempt status?

      3. What are Christian rights? What rights do you think non-Christians have that Christians don't? Do you believe Christians are the only people who pray?

        Answer to 1, yes I understand however, this was the first year that I have voted and Prop 8 was what I voted on so I gave an example.

        2. Is there anything in the law that says that they can't take away the tax exemption. Maybe your thinking of Catholic as Christians because growing up in church and going to a christian school, I have never heard any pastor preach on divorce being wrong. Actually, I've heard them preach on trying to fix the marriage but if it cannot be fixed, that divorce then may be the best answer. It was 5 months. I do not believe it would be something that would appear quickly but rather over time as more people become comfortable with it.

        3.No I do not think praying is only for Christians. However as for losing Christian rights, these are just a few examples:

        A) A foster child in 2007 was taken away from their foster family because they refuse to teach him about homosexuality because of them being Christians. The article link is http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article … lity.html.
        B)There is still a battle going on about taken One Nation Under God out of the Pledge of Allegiance as well as In God We Trust off of money.
        C) It is no longer Merry Christmas but now it is Happy Holidays. Displays of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus are not being put up because of the risk of offending someone.

          Any law can change at any time. It doesn't take making gay people equal citizens for that to happen.

          Well, frankly, that's a self-serving ignorance of Jesus's message, which roundly condemned divorce several times in the Bible (he didn't mention homosexuality, much less gay marriage, even once.) It's always easy to be tough about the "sins" you are never going to commit anyway (which explains the preponderance of men in the anti-abortion movement).

          Yes, that seems to be the case.

          UK. Not US. Different country, different laws.

          You do understand that this is a small group trying to drum up support for a change, and not the government making unilateral changes on its own, right? BTW "One Nation Under God" was tacked on in 1954 during the McCarthy era; it was a late amendment, not part of the original pledge.

          Is this a change in law? Is it a Christian right to say "Merry Christmas" and not have non-Christians think that's not very inclusive a holiday greeting? On private property, you can put up whatever you want. On public property with public funds, why should non-Christians subsidize Christian nativity scenes when this is not their cultural tradition, and we are not a Christian nation?

            I won't take your post point for point I will say that yes it is a Christian right to say "Merry Christmas" just as its the right of the non Christian to be offended! The real point is the non Christian is a minority in this Country, 80% of Americans identify themselves as Christian. Was it you who said that Bush "interfered in the right to the pursuit of happiness of millions of gay/lesbian couples?" What has Obama done to change that? It is currently the right for gay couples to Marry in a number of States and I would suggest if they want to do that then move to one of those States!

              Yes, that's what tends to happen. And those who choose to not offend use "Happy Holidays" which doesn't seem all that offensive to the Christians I know.

              What is your point?

              Obama has a campaign pledge to at least extend equal rights under the law. He's been in office for about 8 months, and he's been a bit busy with a lot of other things. We'll see if he makes good on his promise. That's quite a bit different from campaigning for legislation in the other direction.

              If you were asked to uproot yourself and move across the country to "enjoy" being treated like an equal citizen, you'd be more than disappointed. It's hard to explain this to some people who have never had the experience of being a 2nd class citizen.

                My point about 80% of Americans claiming to be Christian is that the US is indeed a Christian Nation despite what you or Obama say! I will say Merry Christmas, if you are offended, sorry about your luck! I don't give a rats ass!

                Campaign promises to equal rights under the law? They have equal rights! They can get married!

                If I were asked to uproot myself? I guess if I felt strongly about marrying then I would, people uproot themselves for a lot less!

                    I heard Obama say Merry Christmas to many people.  He is a Christian by the way.  Besides that if you are okay with people saying Merry Christmas then do not get mad if someone says Happy Hanukkah or Happy Ramadan.

                    For the record, I'm not Christian, nor am I offended when someone says Merry Christmas to me.

                    What you two have an issue with are your fellow Christians saying Happy Holidays, in an effort to be more inclusive, instead of being as abrasive as you like to be.

            Jesus did not come to preach sin, but to free people from sin. Understanding the Bible is essential. Jesus responded while attacked by Pharisee about divorce. He shows them their Hippocratic thinking. They did not have homosexual issue, and then there was not need to address it. Jesus was functioning that time under Old Testament time and there are many laws against homosexual life style. It is sin. It is gross and abnormal. I do not want to control their behavior; in private I support freedom. But why for heaven sake they want to be married and irritate many? It beats my brain.

    Good morning to everyone!
    Nice discussion is going here. What's notable- there's not many Obama's supporters here coming to tell why they really like him...is this thread about liking him? We know why Wegivacraps like him, now how about Democrats? For now I saw only one person who humbly tried to make his point but faded in minority.... On the thread "I hate Obama" we saw much more of Obama lovers. Weird...
    Anyway, at least we see more politeness and dignity here, on this thread!
    Have a good day, everyone!
    Oh, and btw, I personally also like him (in addition to J's list) because he is HALF-black, HALF-white (someone said Arab? It's not the color!) and that the color is only skin deep.  But it seems that being half-black/half-white gives cards into hands of any side....Whatever one may say in defense or in criticism might be considered racist.

      For real? I like him because he's used his executive powers to increase environmental regulations and that he's been proactive about foreign policy issues without being too ideological about it. Some of the things I don't like about him involve his lack of enthusiasm, like most Democrats, for taking a truly strong approach for the most critical issues (of which their very passive approach to the health care bill is a good example).

    I still say Merry Christmas. The problem I have is how quite a few of my friends have talked about how they were told in a meeting at their jobs that they can't say Merry Christmas to the customers. Now it may only be here where I live. One of the businesses that was by our church was asked to take down their Christian Christmas decorations because there were too many people complaining.  I personally think that is wrong which is why I brought it up.

    So that you understand what and who I am, and you can better understand where I come from when I say things, I'll let you know a few things about me. I have Christian and non-christian friends alike. I am not the person to preach to people unless they ask questions. I am rarely the type of person that feels insulted, so people can say what they want. I do get upset when people are told that they can't do things, if they are morally acceptable (such as I don't think a person should be able to murder just because the want to or for any reason what so ever.)

    However, back to the original subject, whatever Obama believes, I don't care. I care about what actions he takes, and so far I've seen nothing but more money going down the drain. I know what it's like being in a family that is living off of an unemployment check and has to live with friends because we can't afford a house. I had to give up my career in the Air Force because I have two kids and we can't afford child care. So we are living off of one income, living with my father in law because we can't afford rent. So to see that my family is going to have to pay more so that we can bail out businesses that are only taking the money so that they can give bonuses and vacations to people makes me very upset. I want to be able to have my own home or at least an apartment. However, with the fact that I can't go to school because I can't afford to pay child care nor pay back student loans, and grants being taken away, I'm stuck at home (which is best for the kids anyway) writing and trying to find some way to make money in order to help support my family.

    That may be Bush's fault. However, I personally believe that the amount of financial issues our country has, has been caused by many different presidents. Obama says he is trying to fix the situation, yet he is pushing his health care plan which will cost us more money, and spending more and more money that we don't have. He said he'd take our troops out, however, he's just sending them somewhere else.

    Those are only some of the reasons I have issues with Obama.
