You’re making me work on Saturday , Oh wait it’s Barack Obama Day
Also known as Get in their face day.
I’d love for someone to tell me just what POSITIVE thing Obama did for the country? What leadership and drive did he initiate that did something remarkable? In what way did he even make black lives in this country better?
I didn’t even know. Well, I did clean out and wash the garbage cans in the house today.
How many Blacks will be SHOT and KILLED by OTHER Blacks on BO DAY???
Clean-your-toilet-day. Which I did.

Did they all catterwawl the muzzie morning call to prayer?
Does any other living President have such a thing? Is there a Bill Clinton Day in Arkansas?
da da da da da da da da, they say its your birthday
its my birthday too, yay!
Really, the Kenyan shares my birthday, but I had it first.
What are the odds?
Celebrating egotistical, dishonest, politically corrupt, ‘home town’ kid that made a divisive America acceptably mainstream.
If they go through with putting Harriet Tubman on the 20, within a year old jug ears will be on the C-note I bet. Or at least there will be a push for it.
THAT’S when it’s time to go crypto...
It gets worse. USS Gabrielle Giffords
Week in Progress (7/29 8/4)

There’s a crying need for an “If you Like your Plan, You can Keep your Plan,” national holiday.
It is embedded in the minds of Americans.
Got more coverage than the record-holding “Keep Christ in Christmas.”
Bill Clinton Day in Arkansas? I can only imagine what folks would do on that day.
Bath House cover charges are waived all weekend.
