    That's all this is , the rioting , the  crash course needed in electoral college reality ,  In essence   yesterday Obama said , .....  "My legacy is lost "because of  the Clinton defeat"..... , lecturing  as to how he invaded Ohio and the Midwest's  fish fry's and VFW's , church gatherings ,as compared to Hilary hardly going there at all ..   The very assumption that got Hilary into deep  trouble thinking she owned the victory judging by previous incredibly high  Obama votes from 2008 , 2012 , political naiveté '?

    It IS incredibly sobering  to realize just how naïve'  the  alt- left  IS !     I wonder why Obama right now isn't calling for an end to destructive violence in the streets  ?     Because he went on to say that his political basis  was grass roots oriented.   ?    Because he believes in violence in the streets ?     Because his belief in the  constitution and it's ultimate fluidity and constant  flux is actionable ?  I believe young America voted for a fraud in the original Obama .   And that the present Obama  hasn't changed a bit . 

    Now , Burning flags , destroying  yard signs ,  rioting in the streets ,and STILL  no personal trophy ? OMG  , How about Grow Up and grow a moral compass  .

      Kind of like the Nazis Hitler Youth were. These are very troubling signs of the subversive tactics democrats use to brainwash and indoctrinate the young, just as Hitler and his cohorts did. We should feel sorry for them as much as fear the ideals which created them. Ideals which include demonizing and attacking all who disagree.

        Alt- Lefter's   should have listened to strict auntie when their proud  folks were spoiling them  at the Safe- Spacers- R- Us  store .  Pure and simple !

      If they, the young, think that an Obama hangover is bad let them just imbibe the cyanide that Trump has in store for them

      As I understand it, Obama was unable to put reasonable and fair policies into effect because Congress was controlled by conservative elements.

      Look to your own morality and ethics.  A pseudo, hypocritical christianity will not get anyone to Heaven,  in this life or the next.

        It never ceases to amaze me how often a professed atheist brings up religion. Anyway, you apparently don't understand the checks and balances of our system of government. The president is not king.

          I am a non gay and non atheist and still approve John's message.

          America Heaven waits in this life or the assumed next one

            I am not in the least bit surprised that you approve it. This is quite typical of you, really Castle. You needn't have posted something we both already know. smile

          And it seems the ultra-conservative religious element in your country would like to usurp those checks and balances to their own advantage.

          I bring up the religious argument because it obviously pervades all of your arguments.  And those of the colorful one. 

          Now the word nazi has been brought into your arguments.  A pretty good analysis of the political directions in your country.  If you value your Freedom of Speech, watch out - it's under threat.

          As for the election of leader in your country:  President Obama was elected by a fair majority yet you and your friends here have given him little if any respect.  And if it's democracy you want, how about respecting the views of those with whom you don't agree?

          A small majority of the small number of people who voted (no where near a majority of the American people), got Mr Trump in.  Does he have your respect?

          I respect my Head of State, Queen Elizabeth of Australia who, in holding that Office, is above party politics.  There are tried and tested "checks and balances" that serve our country and Britain very well. But we also depend ultimately on enough people being honest, ethical and generally fair-minded.

            Are you misfit chick with another account? I've never brought up religion in politics. You do, ad nauseum. Since you don't bother to think before you hurl insults there is no reason, really , to read  the drivel you spew but in the interest of fair and honest facts it is a tedious responsibility those of us who attempt to be fair and balanced must bear.

              Thank Ms L&L.  Interesting that you write about free speech but I will not bother to read it until freedom is allowed both ways.

              I hear that Virginia is a beautiful State.  Have a nice day.

              Yours sincerely

                Obviously you lack the ability to comprehend the written word. That explains a lot about our previous exchanges.

    At least Obama came out of the Communist Closest publicly, but people lacking cerebral mass to use reason and logic can't or won't believe it, or don't care.  Its what many suspected, and others knew ... but....shhh.

    OBAMA: No Difference Between Capitalism and Communism

    Does Imama Obama need to learn the difference between the two according to American values?...  but, was he referring to free enterprise or private enterprise at all?  Or, was he referring to communist capitalism of the modern World Communist Party?   

    "Marx thought that the economic system of communism would replace capitalism. Communism is based on principles meant to correct the problems caused by capitalism. The most important principle of communism is that no private ownership of property should be allowed."  - Wikipedia

      Being first black or half breed, was not enough. The US Corp needed another puppet and escape goat. Obama worked perfectly, also for destruction of Muslims nations. Trump will take that all beyond carrying the phony American dream of being Great again. That would not work even if you were all 100℅ white.

      Colorfulone, have you ever been to Cuba?  I have.  President Obama was talking a lot of sense.  You have lifted a short clip out of his speech and tried to twist it out of context.

      Very poor argument.

    Must have offended my own white race with the truth. They shut my thread down, I pretty well had it with Americans greatest pass time of lying and one sidedness.

    I'll send you care packages from Bolivia. If they allow me to do that.

        Must be hard to tame Tarzan too.  Been told I'm too honest to a fault. I tried to mellow out, then I rot. I will stay for the arts. Do have a hand full of really good friends. Do not have much friends here although do consider you being a friend. You care about earthlings too.
