“Pass A Bill”…………President Obama
President Obama announced an Executive Action on Immigration last night. This is nothing new, President Roosevelt, President Bush are among Presidents who have announced Executive Action. This is literally nothing new.
Couple this with the fact the Republicans have not passed a bill since it seems like, the stone age. Which begs the question why? To find the answer you will need to request an explanation from both House and Senate Republicans.
The entire congressional and senate arm of our government is broken. Not because of Democrats, no more likely because of Republicans,
Question: When is the last day to sign up for Affordable Care Act / Obamacare?
Mitt Romney is a bad looser. He simply will not concede. President Obama has won re-election. That is a reality. It’s over. The Republican party as will know it will have to change. That is the reality. Forget about Mitt Romney tantrums and stamping of feet. The Republican party will need to redefine itself Romney’s time is over.
Seriously folks America has changed and Republicans will have to change with it. That the reality of it. Barack Obama is only the second two term Democratic president since Franklin Roosevelt. He died in office in 1945. Bill Clinton was the first.
The Republicans in a startling move finally came to their senses and approved a two month extension of the Payroll Tax and Medicare payments, as well as jobless unemployment payments. The move opened the gates to fund a good number of much needed programs to keep those who work and those who can’t afloat. The whole point of this Republican charade is well pointless.
I really can’t tell you why, and probably you don’t have an explanation either. So we are all speechless. Maybe all this drama is just an insane hatred of President Obama, which probably has underlying undertones. We will leave that discussion for another day. The good news is someone slapped some sense into the Republicans. Could it be Mitch McConnell? How about Newt, he seems to be the sanest Republican at the moment.
In any event let’s give the Republicans a round of applause, even though it is great that we did not hear the greatest lie of all come from the Mouth of Republicans, “The American People Have Spoken” no it seems like what really happened is Mitch McConnell spoke and Congress perhaps caved? Mitch McConnell?? Who would have thought?
It is absolutely ridiculous that Republicans continuously use racist innuendo to disparage the President of the United States with racist jokes and get away with it. Yes presidents have been ridiculed before, but never taken to this low level. Certainly not at a racial level. Republicans should be ashamed of themselves. They have posted pictures of watermelons on the white house lawn, drawn offensive pictures of Obama, and just out and out disparaged President Obama and His family. This is absolutely unacceptable to most Americans, but apparently not to the Republicans, who within their own party have said absolutely nothing to stop this behavior by their peers; fellow Republicans.
Just like the continued erosion of this country, we see a strange tolerance that speaks volumes about who we are as Americans. We are better than this and Republicans need to step up and get their fellow Republicans in line and stop this behavior.
It’s Martin Luther King, Jr.s day and the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, must be commended for their work in accomplishing the completion of this great monument. Although we in Black fraternities and sororities are competitive, we do come together to celebrate this monument and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity commends the dedication and commitment of the Alpha Phi Psi Fraternity in honoring their brother and our revered leader, Civil Rights and American Icon, Dr. Martin Luther King.
It is a great day for African-Americans and Americans as a whole who sacrificed much and overcame much because of this great man. We were denied common rights as Americans. The rights to vote, the right to drink at a public fountain, the right to use public parks, the right to attend integrated schools. Dr. King gave his life so these basic rights were available to all.
Now Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has a Monument on the Mall in Washington, D.C. This is a great day and as we celebrate our nation’s first African-American President, it is a testament to the sacrifice that Dr. King made. Without Dr. King’s supreme sacrifice, President Barack Obama would not be where he is today.
President Obama, said the Monument was not just for him, but for those who struggled with Dr. King. Obama mentioned the strength and courage of those who march with Dr. King, some living, some have passed on. Those who marched and sang, sit in and stood in. Obama called them foot soldiers for justice. He talked about the half century that has passed since the March on Washington in 1963. The day when Martin Luther King gave the “I Have A Dream Speech”.
Martin Luther King, was flawed, he had setbacks, he was a man of flesh and blood, said President Obama. All of us have fallen short of God’s perfect nature. He was a man sent by God that tried. He tried because of what he tried to accomplish. The people he tried to bring together, to bring the detractors and positive people together to come to the table of negotiation.
That is what our challenge is and we must never forget the sacrifice and the hope of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
President Obama is great at compromising, witness Obama showed his birth certificate. He felt compelled to do so by the rant of Mr. Toupee, “The Donald” Trump. Obama held a news conference to show a full copy of his birth certificate and Trump held a news conference; and had a “whose your daddy moment”, while taking credit for forcing Obama to produce his birth certificate. Who cried uncle first, President Obama?
Now everyone will think he is weak and will not stand up for principals or his stated values. He was basically called out by Donald Trump. Any sane man would have told Trump where to take his request and his toupee. Now it is too late for Obama to go back, every no name, insignificant idiot will feel they can push President Obama into a corner and he will cave.
It is a shame that it’s come to this. The nation’s first African-American president is being questioned, called out, and outright disrespected by nearly everyone. It gives one room for pause when this has never happened to any other president. Just saying.
