I don't get what I was just listening to.

Usually when I'm doing stuff in my office, I turn the tv in the front room to FOX news and just listen to what's going on while I'm doing paperwork. Today it came on with obama rambling on about everything under the sun. I never really got a point or understood what his purpose was but he did slam Trump a bit along with my generation. He addressed millennials at one point, telling them how much better they are at everything than any other generation before them, but for the most part, the 20 minutes or so that I heard was just rambling. Does he really feel that his thoughts are so important that he has to share them on national news? If there was some purpose to his speech, it was lost on me because all I heard was irrelevant rambling.

    I listened to that, too. I think that mess was due to his finding his daughter Malia's stash of 'medical marijuana' and smoking a blunt or three.

    I had Fox News on while I was paying bills on the computer, and picked up a few minutes of Obama. Normally, I switch off or change channels any time Obama, Hilary, or Trump are speechifying, but I was busy and let it run. I have no clue what his message was, but even being distracted, I picked up dozens of half-truths, outright lies, and the usual elitest left-wing spin. The guy is so detached from reality that he even bores his own followers.

    I will be so happy when this guy is finally tossed into the dust bin of history, and the real citizens can all start putting this country back together, one county at a time. I think most folks are so tired of political BS that they just want the feds to occupy themselves with the sheep in the big coastal cities and leave the rest of us to our own devices.

    And I did too. He was speaking at the U.N. spouting the Communist Manifesto. I was in the bed and I think I set a world land speed record for while wearing pajamas getting to the remote to change channels. He is one silver tongue devil. He was talking about Globalization and what we need to do to make it work. Maybe he didn't realize it was being viewed by the world. What he was spouting today isn't like what he would say when campaigning. This was more the real Obummer, a commie to the hilt.

    Wasn't that the idiot-in-chief's final address to the UN? I'm sure the rest of the world will appreciate NOT having to listen to his rambling, incoherent lectures any more!

    The reason most of us can't decipher what he's saying is because what he's saying is so foreign to the average working class American that it sounds like rambling. But if you force yourself to listen you will pick up some key words, like what woke me up was when he got to talking about Globalization. The narrative there was absolute Commie talk.

    It's like one for all and all for one. We're all one big happy family. The one is yet to be determined but you can bet your sweet ass it ain't you. And you can bet the one doesn't really give a damn about the all.

    The control the media has over what people are told as fact (other than Fox) is so strong that you never hear about the beautiful history of America. All you'll hear are all the negatives of Capitalism and our way of life. Yeah we've made our mistakes. And you know what else? We'll make more. But we will still be a better system than any other. That's been proven. If you don't believe it, go buy yourself a plane ticket and go visit Asia an Africa. And when you come home tell me about all the countries you found to be a better place to raise your kids than here. Maybe Japan would come close.

    Obama and his plan for "CHANGE" is not good for this country. And the one thing he won't tell you is that for Socialism to work, you need a dictatorship to rule. And that right there is totally Un-American.

    More stuff about Obama:

    Now, some will say, "But look at Europe, there's plenty of examples of successful socialism. Well No! There's not. The old Soviet Union was a great example of this BUT IT DIDN'T WORK! And now a lot of countries are socialist leaning. But who will come to their rescue if Russia or China try to retake them and go back to something resembling the Soviet Union? If anybody does, it will be us. Russia with Putin would love to, but they know they can't defeat us in a head to head showdown. Putin is getting braver and he has Obama's Number. But he still isn't sure enough to go for it. WE, THE US are the deterrent. We ARE, whether we want to admit it, the world's policemen. Why? Because we represent the good in the world (well, up until Obama) and we are the only country with a military strong enough to defeat anyone else on this planet, or at least we were before Obama took office.

    OBAMANURE that's what you heard. That idealistic punk forgets what country gave him the opportunity to be our president, twice. No other country in the entire world would have. He blew it, TOTALLY .

    Whose side is he on? Doesn't seem like the USAs.


    Montage: 11 Times Obama Talked Down the U.S. in His Final U.N. Address

    https://news.grabien.com/story.php?id=540

    "In his final speech to the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama laid out what he views as his foreign policy legacy -- and in so doing, highlighted how America itself still has much work to do. Specifically, Obama found 11 separate opportunities to talk down his own country.

    Here are some of the ways Obama told the United Nations America is falling short:

    In America, there's too much money in politics.

    There's also too much "entrenched partisanship."

    Too few Americans are civically engaged.

    A "patchwork of laws" in America set out to make it hard for Americans to vote.

    Considering our founding ideals, America has made “our share of mistakes over these last 25 years.”

    The only way the world will become more secure is for powerful nations like America to “accept constraints.”

    For believing that all countries must adhere to certain "international norms," many Americans criticize Obama.

    Too many in Washington believe all of the problems in the world can be solved by Washington.

    As president, he's helped "curb" America’s “excesses of capitalism.”

    America has “undermined unions,” which has destroyed manufacturing jobs.

    In calling for greater respect and tolerance, Obama also likened racial discrimination in the U.S. to ethnic discrimination in Burundi and and religious discrimination in Burma."

    True , but only if Washington will back off and let the military do what they do best, anyone remember Viet Nam, two guesses who ran that conflict.

    LBJ and Robert McNamara(and McNamara's Whiz Kids) micromanaged it to death and made ROE that the enemy loved. That triumvirate snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

    I have to agree with some of these things. Whether or not he should have shared this with the rest of the world is another matter.

    Here are some of the ways Obama told the United Nations America is falling short:

    In America, there's too much money in politics. Yep, and he's not above taking all there is to take.

    There's also too much "entrenched partisanship." Again, I agree. Have you noticed how good the Dems are at supporting their party's candidate, regardless of how flawed he/she is?

    Too few Americans are civically engaged. Yep. Way too many elections are determined by low or poorly informed voters.

    A "patchwork of laws" in America set out to make it hard for Americans to vote.Agreed. We need voter ID laws in all 50 states as well as in D.C.

    Considering our founding ideals, America has made “our share of mistakes over these last 25 years.” fA prime example of that is the last two presidential elections.

    The only way the world will become more secure is for powerful nations like America to “accept constraints.” Nature, and power, abhors a vacuum. Seems he would have learned that by now.

    For believing that all countries must adhere to certain "international norms," many Americans criticize Obama. What norms?

    Too many in Washington believe all of the problems in the world can be solved by Washington. Not sure if those in Washington have a belief system other than get while the getting is good, and screw everyone else.

    As president, he's helped "curb" America’s “excesses of capitalism.”Huh?

    America has “undermined unions,” which has destroyed manufacturing jobs. What total crap! Americans can't afford to buy good made by union shops.

    In calling for greater respect and tolerance, Obama also likened racial discrimination in the U.S. to ethnic discrimination in Burundi and and religious discrimination in Burma. More crap!
