This is one of those things that you can only understand if you are an enlightened liberal, an annointed politician, or a useful idiot.

Not likely it will get a whole lot of play in the media.

Remember the good old days when first ladies use to promote stuff like March of dimes, say no to drugs and Unicef? Welcome to the modern day leftist, oh wait excuse me; the “progressive leftist” where we have now “progressed” to burning people and shooting cops.

When I got my first racetrack job, I learned the racetracker’s ultimate insult, “common.” Example: “As common as cat shit.”

Common, vulgar, and ordinary mean derogatory connotations of cheapness or inferiority. Common applies to the opposite of what is exclusive or aristocratic. Vulgar properly means characteristic of common people; it connotes low taste, coarseness, the vulgar view of things; vulgar in manners and speech. Ordinary refers to what is to be expected in the usual order of things; it means average or below average: “That is a high price for something of such ordinary quality.”

So, who told Dawyne (The Rock) Johnson? How did he tweet about it so soon in the day on May 1st? Could the Birther circus and Trump’s personal destruction tour been all part of Obama’s pre-bin Laden blitz? The world has gone completely ape sh*t and the middle east is getting ready to pounce on Israel - no Osama picture required.

This is just shoving it in our face; there’s no other explanation. In ANY other administration, this would have been vetted and rejected as too controversial, but Moosechelle knows they can use the race card to deflect any criticism.

I thought a mind was a terrible thing to waste.

This can only screw up any kid attending this...

You don’t understand, Those rap workshops will be in DC Schools.

Quite possibly the worst school system in the country.

The good part is he won’t have to take any drugs to the school with him. He can buy all he needs right there.

Overlooking the Bush thing, is this really poetry? He doesn’t even use real words in his ‘poetry’.

Seems to me this is when Bill Cosby should be stepping in. He knows how much harm is done to young people by glorifying rappers. Imagine using this language in a job interview?

47% illiteracy in Detroit? What a national shame.
