Despite your radical ways our heart appears to be in the right place. But you propagate anger and hate and offer no solution. You show rather than tell only your poorly informed opinion. You speak of human rights such as free speech but then you turn around and block all those who contest you. This avoidance of confrontation shows that you fear not only being wrong but those who know better than you on certain topics. If you truly are in the right, then you should debate with those who disagree to turn them onto the correct path, but you run and hide from these people as if fearful of being turned yourself! Such fear should not exist in someone whose cause is just and correct.
I agree with you on some points, but I also agree with your opposition.
How? You may ask.
Because I feel both sides are half correct through excessive analysis and study of the situations. Both have good points and qualities but they also have an equal amount of poor, dangerous and destructive qualities.
If you truly are in the right with strong facts to support you, then stand and fight for the truth rather than preaching corrupt propaganda to your heard of followers to do the fighting for you. (Unless, of course, gathering a group of sheep to hang on your every word for your personal cause with no true base is your overall goal, in which case disregard the entire of the above)
And to those of you eating all of his propaganda without question, you are the perfect examples of the blind, corruptible fools of our world. When you see something like Latuff’s art, look up information on the topic from reliable sources before forming or voicing an opinion. NPR.ORG, BBC.CO.UK, and CNN.COM are all excellent sources Though, each side of the argument demonizes them as corrupt and false for the simple fact that these sources are not reporting bias information to help one side’s cause.

cry more will you? Idiot. I've done my research and I know enough that Obama has let us all down. His foreign policy did not bring peace at a faster pace, in fact his drone strikes made things worse. QQ to someone who gives two shits. Latuff may post offensive art, but hey, sometimes it takes a little bit of offensiveness to grab attention to these real issues.
This art does make a lot of sense, Obama did fool a lot of people around the world.
Other than Komrade Kommissar Obama being a "pied piper" of sorts, you've got it all backwards. The US does not bilk the world. The world bilks the US. Everyone else mo0ches off of us then calls us greedy just because we believe all human beings deserve the right to earn a decent standard of living for themselves rather than being expected to wallow in the squalor of equality, misery, and mediocrity.
Haha. Don't blame Obama, we should just blame ourselves for following America. I mean, the other countries should be more independant. This way, we wouldn't have to complain about America's government.
Great and funny picture! But I still let this guy a chance. We'll see. But my expectations aren't high, anyway. xD
Some of you are on the right track here. It is rarely effective to start accusing Obama of what he did and didn't do when he didn't even finish his first quarter of his term.
Hell, I will say this: the very same people that Latuff have criticized for years, are the very people that is trying to cut down Obama. Listen to Cheney and Limbaugh and you'll definitely tell that the whole "imperialism" is anything but a united ideal of US government.
Why is everyone trying to hate Obama? He has already done so much for this country. He hasn't even been the president for half a year yet, how much so you expect him to change in that little amount of time? He is trying his hardest, people just seem to want a reason to hate him. Don't forget that he is one man, he needs our help as well. Instead of making cartoons all day why don't you help out? He's a good leader, stop trying to make him out to be teh villian. Also, he has already done more in these last few MONTHS then any president did in their whole term. Some things just take patience and are bigger issues then others.
You should look past the stereotypes and past his color! Kool-aid? really? Is that the best you got? He at least doesn’t embarrass this country whenever he talks; he’s an educated man and HAS done stuff for this country. What people don’t understand is that he was left with a mess that took 8 years to make. How much did you expect him to get down in less then 6 months? Is patience too much to ask for? If you are interested in this countries needs you should at least defend the man representing it. Read a book for once and not the edited news channels!
The comment you made about Kool-aid? That shows your view about African Americans, and just to make it clear I’m not African American.
Yeah I do have the audacity to tell you to defend someone I believe in, that’s what the first amendment talks about. Freedom of Speech, it’s my right to be able to express what I want to say and how I feel.
If he goes against your principles that’s your opinion and I wouldn’t have the right to make you believe otherwise. But what I do have a right to do is tell you that you’re not talking to trash and don’t think you can talk to me like that. “Now let me try this again, since your brain couldn't process it the first time.”
To make things clear since YOU couldn’t understand where I was coming from in my reply. Obama is an example. He set a deadline for the closing of Guantanimo Bay on his first day in office! Has also has set a date to have troops out of Iraq by mid 2010. He signed a stimulus package that gives the people of America 787 billion dollars! He has raised the taxes in big business, which helps the economy A LOT. His focus is on the all the classes in America. Instead of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer he is creating an economy where we can all succeed. He understands how it feels to be dirt poor and have people discriminate against him because of his color, so another thing he focuses on is improving everyone’s position.
Oh hey, how is that change working out for ya? Also, if you became wealthy through hard work and time invested in your business/skills that you built from the ground up, do you think that people should have a right to your hard earned money? People who would rather mooch off of the hard working people? What about the middle class of people? They are the ones that are loosing out the most. The people who have a small family run business who are by no means a "big company" but they make a little profit. Obama makes sure that the small business (just because it is a business doesn't mean the owners are rolling in the dough as most of the time any extra money is simply put back into the company) pays out a lot of cash JUST because it is a business. But hey, ALL business owners must be rich, right? Oops! Guess that company will never be able to grow and hey, it might just crash and burn, but it probably deserved it right? Silly people, trying to make something of themselves.
It seems you don't do any research before you start spouting off drivel for the whole net to see. Let me educate you.
The word "Kool-Aid" in the context that I used it in is a a term created by the media that means you believe everything you hear without really looking into the matter.
And let me breakdown why those facts you put up on Obama are a complete jokes.
First, Guantanamo Bay. How does closing Guantanamo Bay make America safer and more secure than it already is? Where are we going to put more than 240 detainees? You cannot answer this question because closing Gitmo is a political ploy to appease the Far Left.
Second, Iraq. Obaam is not pulling all U.S. forces out of Iraq by August 2010. He is leaving a "transitional force" of 50,000 troops to stay in the country indefinetly. So Obama was lying when he said he would pull all U.S. troops out of Iraq. How suprising.
Third, the stimulus package. The stimulus is not giving anything to the people of America. The purpose of passing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was so that federal funds could be allocated to certain projects and troubled sectors of the economy. It was supposed to "create" jobs. But considering that the unemployment rate is above 9%, and even the Vice President has said that tracking such a large amount of money is difficult, I would say that the "stimulus" is a a failure.
Fourth, taxing big business. When you tax big businesses(who happen to be the ones that hire low-income workers), you are destroying the job creators in this country. The more a business(big or small) has to pay in taxes, the more workers they will lay off, the more jobs they will send to other countries, and the rate at which they increase their prices will rise significantly. I don't know how taxing businesses help the economy, considering free-market economics is the hallmark of our economy.
To end this reply, I guess I will agree with you. Obama's focus is on all the classes of America. He wants to make sure we are all equally poor. It is good we can agree on something.
This can clearly go on forever. I dont agree with you. you dont agree with me. We each have our own opinion and there is no point arguing any further. And just for the record you can take that hug and shove it right up your ass
