Some People love throwing Shoes at Presidents
I consider myself a pretty open minded person. I try to listen and learn from every one I come into contact with. I don't care about personal preferences,racial preferences, sexual preferences or any other preferences that somebody might have. I try to treat every person I meet the way I like to be treated. As long as I feel respected, then I will respect you. I have not always been like that. Before I joined the Military I was pretty much one sided on everything. But I have different views now. I still see some things the same, but as a whole I try not to judge and I try to respect other people's views.
I said all that to say this.....
Everybody knows that our President went to Notre Dame this past weekend. Everybody knows that there were some protesters out there. That is going to happen to every President from now until.... whenever. It is a part of being an American President. I don't care if a President finds the cure for cancer and he feeds all Americans with a loaf of bread and a bucket of that new grilled chicken from KFC. No one will always be 100% satisfied.
But what gets me is the fact that these same people that were out there protesting the President, were the same ones that stood deathly quiet when the country was spiraling out of control less than 2 years ago.
Why are they running their traps now?
I was talking to one of my ex-coworkers Saturday and he said some shit that I just do not agree with. He is an older White Dude, that well, for the lack of a better term, is set in his ways. He is one of those people that was sucking on Palin's titties during the election. He swears on his dead mother(god rest her soul) that Obama is fucking the country up, and that we are 10x's worse off now than we ever were under Jr. He was complaining about the stimulus money, he was complaining about terrorism, he was complaining about stem cell research, he was complaining about damn near everything that this administration has done the short 4 months Big O has been sitting in the big seat, in the funny shaped office, in the big White House on 1600 Penn Ave. He cannot stand anything about Obama. He does not even call him the President, he calls him "the savior".
Now Like I said in the opening paragraph, I try to respect other people's opinions. I try to learn from everyone I come into contact with. But the shit this dude was spitting, I had to shake my head in wonder.
Where do people like this get their facts from? How can a man change something in 4 months that has been broken for 8 years? What has Obama done any different from all the other Presidents before him?
Don't they all make promises when they are trying to get elected that they know that they will not keep?
Don't they all shake hands and kiss babies?
Obama is a politician. He is nothing more or nothing less. He has done some shit I don't agree with, but I chalk it up to the game he is involved in.
It is called Politricks.
And our President is good at playing it.
But some of these crazy people in this country are just that, crazy.
Where does the University of Notre Dame get off protesting the President of the United States on his opinion on abortion?
How can any person that is associated with the Catholic Church open their mouths to protest anything that has to do with morality?
Was it moral to allow all those priests to keep molesting the children in their congregation?
Was it moral to keep moving those priests to new locations and try to bribe the victims to keep quiet?
Is it "Christ-Like" to treat one MAN (the pope) like he is the ONLY man that is allowed to go into God's own personal day-room? Doesn't the bible say that there is only one that is worthy of that respect?
It amazes me the mind-set of some of my fellow Americans.
I just don't understand it.
Like I said I don't agree with everything that my President has done in the short time he has been in office.
But he is still the President.
He deserves the respect that the office holds.
Lord knows I thought Jr. and his whole administration was fucked-up. Anyone that has been following my little ole blog knows that. But when that idiot threw his shoes at him, and almost beamed him in the face, that shit pissed me off. Jr. was my President and he deserved the respect that that office holds. As an American I felt totally disrespected by that.
So why doesn't President Obama get that same respect from certain (white)people in this country?
These so called "Christians" trip me out with their 1960 ass way of thinking. It is like they only read certain sentences out of the Bible and ignore the rest of it.
I can't stand them.
All I can say to people with that type of mentality is, Hell is Hot.
Very Very Hot.
