Conservatives blame liberals and liberals blame conservatives. We get it, but it still isn't a political thread.

Well Atlanta is in the South, and they are gonna paint there crosswalks rainbow colors to appease the lgbt community or whatever they want to be called these days. So it went from equal rights ( which is should be standard and I am for equal rights for all %100 percent), to special rights, and being labeled a bigot or whatever if you do agree with every little thing certain groups of people want. Personally I think rainbow colored crosswalks would look tacky.

Hmmm.. Im gay and I don't recall asking for a rainbow crosswalk so not sure how you are appeasing me or the entire community? And its still about equal right considering we still can't adopt in some states and can still get fired in others... Oh and the T portion just got banned from the military so yeah its still about equal rights.

A rainbow crosswalk is considered "special rights"?

If 45K people will supposedly die w/o healthcare under Trump, then why didn't they die before Obamacare was introduced then?


Don't be stupid.


Obama's legacy left us with record unemployment, horrible race relations, unprecedented debt, 8 years of war, record slow economic growth, and a million other things.

False - and here are a few things he did do. Also, he was dealt a broken economy which already had high debt & awful economic growth. Also, your delusional if you think he created the current race relation issues.

4 – Ordered for the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden
5 – Passed the $787 billion America Recovery and Reinvestment Act to spur economic growth during the Great Recession
6 – Supported the LGBT community’s fight for marriage equality
7 – Commuted the sentences of nearly 1200 drug offenders to reverse “unjust and outdated prison sentences”
8 – Saved the U.S. auto industry
9 – Helped put the U.S. ontrack for energy independence by 2020
10 – Began the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan
11 – Signed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals allowing as many as 5 million people living in the U.S. illegally to avoid deportation and receive work permits
12 –Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to re-regulate the financial sector
13 – Dropped the veteran homeless rate by 50 percent
14 – Reversed Bush-era torture policies
15 – Began the process of normalizing relations with Cuba
16 – Increased Department of Veteran Affairs funding
17 – Signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act
18 – Boosted fuel efficiency standards for cars
19 – Improved school nutrition with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act
20 – Repealed the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy
21 – Signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, making it a federal crime to assault anyone based on sexual or gender identification
22 – Helped negotiate the landmark Iran Nuclear Deal
23 – He signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to combat pay discrimination against women
24 – Nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, making her the first Hispanic ever to serve as a justice
25 – Supported veterans through a $78 billion tuition assistance GI bill
26 – Won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”
27 – Launched My Brother’s Keeper, a White House initiative designed to help young minorities achieve their full potential

1. He didn't end it. Unemployment rates went up annually, with a record number dropping out of the workforce entirely.
2. AHCA essentially raised premiums everywhere. Mine have nearly doubled. Thanks, Obama!
3. He pulled out. We lost. ISIS took over and is winning. Good job!
4. Bush did the same. The ST6 did the work. Obama gets ZERO credit there. Zero.
5. Those "shovel ready jobs" failed to make any remarkable impact whatsoever. Fail!
6. That's of no concern for me. He was all for their rights, but not for the rights of a bakery.
7. He also released known terrorists back to ISIS from Guantanamo Bay. Such a toolbag.
8. By forcing mergers and appointing communist-like czars, all on OUR dime.
9. How? By not allowing pipelines? By letting the EPA be his beotch?
10. And the rise of more terrorism. Nice.
11. And while doing so he didn't help our homeless vets, and watched as a record number of Americans went on food stamps. The dude's priorities are so out of whack.
12. Ill agree with you on that point. I was happy to see that.
13. Yet let the VA's crumble. Bloody brilliant.
14. Just shows how much of a wuss he really was.
15. Any Cuba is a communist dump who once sought to destroy us, and was run by a homophobic, racist, and murderous tyrant. Let em rot.
16. And he also raised our deficit to numbers never seen before. woot woot
17. That was in the pipeline long before Obozo took office.
18. And is killing the trucking industry with unrealistic expectations, too.
19. And most schools refused to use it because the food was so gross that kids weren't eating.
20. I don't care. Never before has such a minority been so vocal and annoying about what they do in their bedrooms. We bow and cater to them. Shame, that.
21. Yet he sides with BLM, who openly attack people solely based on their skin color.
22. You should be afraid of that. They want to destroy us. You. Your children. Your friends.
23. There is no pay discrimination. Its been proven to be false on many levels.
24. And she is also pro-La Raza, a racist Hispanic group/movement. She needs to croak already.
25. Yet the homeless vet rate skyrocketed, as did their suicide rate. All the while he cut military funding.
26. For what? Doing NOTHING? That award has been petitioned to be revoked since it caused such an uproar. He is the most undeserving recipient EVER. Shameful!!!!!!!!!!!!
27. Oooh, congrats. Bush actually assigned them to his cabinet. Proof that all it takes is desire and motivation to make the best of yourself. Sadly, most black youth is all about hip hop, which promotes thug life and not much else. They need to be the next Colin Powell/Condoleeza Rice/Ben Carson,etc. Not aspiring to be like Lil Wayne or Beyoncé.
28. Not a big deal. Scientists and researchers do that on their own. Him promoting it isn't anything to write home about. Not when we had skyrocketing deficit, soaring illegal immigration, rising crime, the worst rioting since 9167, releasing ISIS back into the wild, record healthcare costs, etc.
